Choosing the Right Skin Care Products | Aldershot BTC Health Centre

Should I only choose natural skin care products? Why?

Avoid products containing chemicals and synthetic preservatives

Studies have shown that chemicals and synthetic preservatives can lead to pre-mature aging and various cancer or diseases.

Nutrients found in organic extracts effectively heal and nourish the skin, while helping to increase elasticity, resulting in healthier and younger looking skin. Non-organic ingredients often contain dangerous pesticides, herbicides and chemical fertilizers. The human body absorbs 60 to 70% of what is being applied to it topically, absorbing nutrients into the blood stream and vital organs those organic ingredients possess an extremely high nutritional content benefiting the whole body.

Day in and out, I lived with this pain! I wasn’t living my life to its fullest, which led to depression more days than not. I would pray for a cure daily, or at the least some way to help manage all the pain and state of mind I was in. I sought solace in pain killers and mood adjusting pills but after a short time the pain killers lost their effectiveness. This is when I started looking for alternative treatment options but none offering real lasting relief. I tried everything from RMT to Chiropractic treatments until one day I read an article about Bowen Therapy and decided to try it. Nothing to lose and boy was I surprised. After the first visit I noticed some relief and after just 5 weekly visits I was actually PAIN FREE.

I was so impressed with the effectiveness of Bowen Therapy that I decided to become a practitioner so I could bring other people the same kind of relief that it brought to me. I’m now and avid mountain biker, which I could never have considered before with all the pain in my back, legs and shoulders. Biking is just something I heartily enjoy but it has also helped me lose some weight and build back muscle I had been losing over the years. All of these factors have left me healthier, stronger and even happier than I’ve been in a long time.
