Fish oil, mercury contamination, and more…

February 7th, 2007

Question: from Carla

I received my 4 bottles of your Omega 3/ DHA Esters. Thank you so much for the prompt delivery. I was advised by a natural Doctor I was seeing awhile back who was trying to treat me for Depression without drugs. I was purchasing the Pharmax Fish Oil (finest liquid state) 200 ml for a few years and really liked it. However, I have been reading more on Fish Oils and wondering how safe is it really. I read your on-line report on the fish you use in Australia but can’t understand why you don’t sell it in its purest liquid state. It’s hard for me swallowing any pills.

Also, I am hoping you can answer a few questions to ease my mind before I start taking your capsules (I’m assuming they are capsules since I have not opened a bottle yet and just in case I have to return them.)

  1. I’m not really sure after reading the explanation given on your website exactly what Esters are. Does it mean the capsule the oil is put in?

  2. Do you sell your Fish Oil in liquid form? I really prefer taking it that way instead of capsule form. I read where the capsules are more likely to contain mercury. The Pharmax Brand states on their label on the bottle No contaminants and NO mercury. When I went on their website that was changed to LOWEST traceable amounts of Mercury than any brand on the market.

Does your Omega 3/DHA Esters contain ANY MERCURY at all?

  1. Does the capsule type instead of liquid state have to be heated to be purified?

  2. My final question and so sorry for taking up your time reading all this! Do all Fish Oils, including your product, contain mercury? Do all fish contain mercury? I have been buying salmon at a local fish market and told that their fish is caught from the Atlantic ocean and not farm fed. I now have been reading that the Atlantic ocean salmon has a lot of mercury in it as well. Is this true? I do hear of Wild salmon but I can’t find it anywhere. Is that the only type of salmon I should be eating. Is the Atlantic ocean polluted too? Is there any traces of mercury in your Esters. Again, please clarify Esters instead of stating Fish Oil. Is this Fish Oil I have purchased?

I notice that the capsule Fish Oils are so much cheaper than the purest liquid state. Why is your Fish Oil not sold in liquid state or do you? Also, is it dangerous taking too much Fish Oil. I know that the body stores a lot Vitamins including Vitamin E which I noted is in your product. Why have you added that to the Fish Oil? I didn’t notice that until I read the label when I received your product at home. I get enough Vitamin E is my Multi-Vitamin I take daily.

Answer: from Warren Matthews of Xtend-Life

  1. Omega 3 Fish Oil is either in two forms. Triglyceride or ester form. It has nothing to do with the capsules, just the oil itself. We use the ester form because we believe it has better bio-availability. This is because the body has to convert the triglyceride form to the ester form in order to absorb it.

  2. No, we don’t supply our Omega 3 in liquid form. This is primarily because it is concentrated. You only need a total of 2 grams a day which is well less than a teaspoon full. Unfortunately you have been misinformed about the capsule form of Omega 3/fish oil being more likely to contain mercury. In fact, the reverse is true. The oil supplied in liquid form is generally less concentrated than oils in capsule form and is unlikely to be molecularly distilled and therefore much more likely to contain contaminants such as mercury. Nonetheless a lot of Fish Oil in capsules is not purified and so there are obvious exceptions to that.

With regard to Mercury any Fish Oil supplier that you ask should be able to give you a quantitative statement regarding the amount of mercury in their product based on their analysis of each batch.

For example: When we test each batch of our Omega 3 DHA/ Esters for mercury contamination we go down to a level of 0.01 ppm (parts per million). This is the practical level of sensitivity for the equipment of the independent GMP laboratory that we use for testing.

If there is absolutely no mercury present and/or the level is less than 0.01ppm it will not show up in the testing equipment. So a result <0.01ppm means ‘less than’ 0.01ppm. Every batch of our product to date has had this result.

Does that mean that there is absolutely no mercury present? Not necessarily. It just means that the amount present, if any at all is too small to be measured. Mercury is present in many foods including vegetables but more particularly in fish.

For example, some larger fish such as shark and swordfish may have mercury levels as high as 1ppm which is more than 100 times the levels of 0.01ppm that we test to. Even big eye tuna is around 0.5ppm so you can see the purification process that we put our oil through reduces the mercury level to that of a lot lower than raw fish. Added to that you only consume 2 grams of our Fish Oil a day which is significantly less than a serving of fish?

The New Zealand hoki fish which we use exclusively does not have any detectable levels of mercury, even before we start the purification/concentration procedures. A factor in this is that they are caught in pristine waters in the Southern Ocean and are not subject to the contaminants that many northern hemisphere fish are.

  1. There is some heating required as part of the purification/molecular distillation process. It is the only practical way to remove all contaminants effectively. There is no degradation to the oil due to this process.

  2. As I mentioned above there is no detectable mercury in our Omega 3 oil right down to 0.01ppm.

With regard to Atlantic salmon I have read reports claiming that they are fairly high in mercury. However they would not contain as much mercury as shark or swordfish. I have not seen any data differentiating between the mercury levels of salmon captured in different locations.

You would have to take of lot of Fish Oil capsules to overdose with it. We recommend between 2 and 4 per day, although I know some physicians will recommend more than double that…some triple. You can overdose on cod liver oil however, which is regarded to be the ’sewer of the sea’. It also contains a lot of Vitamin A which can be detrimental to your health.

Vitamin E is added as a natural preservative. The amount is negligible…1.5IU per softgel so it does not interfere with any other Vitamin E you are taking.

Complication of Diabetes UTI

January 23rd, 2007

Urinary Tract Infection, (UTI) is a common ailment and can affect people of all ages, sex, and from all cultures. However, there are certain groups of people that are more prone to UTI than others. Women, for example, for reasons yet to be firmly established, carry a greater risk of UTI. Diabetic patients too fall under this category. Going further, Pregnant women with Diabetes are probably amongst the most vulnerable to UTI.

Diabetic women are at a higher risk of developing to Urinary Tract Infection (UTI) after Menopause as compared to non-Diabetic women. In fact, a study by University of Washington, Seattle revealed that the risk of UTI in Diabetic women was 80% higher than others. UTI in Diabetic patients is not only more severe but also is more recurrent as compared to non-Diabetic patients.

The sugar content of urine in a Diabetic patient provides a breeding ground for bacteria once they enter the bladder. The most serious but rare types of UTI like pyelonephritis, widespread infections, abscesses, inflammation of the bladder wall, occur mostly in Diabetic individuals.

The risk of UTI increases with any negative change in the Immune System of the body. Diabetes, like many other disorders, affects the Immune System, increasing the risk of a Urinary Tract Infection.

Another characteristic of UTI in Diabetic patients is that of the risk of presence of asymptomatic (having no symptoms of illness or disease) bacteriuria - presence of bacteria in urine - is much greater than in others. Treating this condition, according to study conducted in 2003, is of little value as it does not prevent complications.

Diabetes may cause conditions of overactive bladder or neurogenic bladder. Whereas, an overactive bladder is common, neurogenic bladder is rare but more a severe condition.

Diabetic men and women commonly face problems like feeling of urinary urgency, Incontinence, frequency and getting up at night often to urinate. A severe condition often manifests in the shape of Painful Urination and retention of urine in the bladder. Bladder Infection treatment in cases of neurogenic bladder involve a Urinary Tract Infection cure with medication targeting better bladder emptying and a course of action called timed urination. Timed urination refers to behavior changes for promoting efficient urination. Occasionally, an insertion of a catheter is necessitated to empty the bladder, if other procedures, including massaging of the lower bladder, do not work with the patient.

For diagnostic purposes, the procedures involved include a check up of the nervous system, x-rays, and evaluation of bladder function.

UTI in Diabetic patients can be a traumatic experience leading to complications if not treated in time. Urinary Tract Infection cure for Diabetic patients requires a longer period, lasting from anything between seven to fourteen days, of antibiotic treatment even for uncomplicated infections. In many cases it may have to be accompanied by Bladder Infection treatment.

Natural Herbal Cream to Treat and Prevent Diaper Rash

January 23rd, 2007

How can NaturalEco Diaper Distress Cream help your child?

Diaper Rash is an extremely common problem for babies and toddlers who are still in diapers. This broad term refers to any rash that is found in the diaper area and actually covers skin irritations that are due to a wide variety of causes, including rashes caused by Allergies, fungal or bacterial infection.

Most diaper rashes are simply a consequence of the moist and enclosed environment inside a diaper as well as the friction between the skin and diaper material. This may cause the tender skin in the diaper area to become vulnerable to other skin infections.

Babies with Diaper Rash often become extremely temperamental and “grouchy” due to the discomfort, and for moms of these little ones, Diaper Rash can be a very frustrating problem. All mothers hate to see their babies uncomfortable and in pain.

What is Diaper Distress Cream?

Diaper Distress Cream is a wonderfully soothing and healing cream for both prevention and treatment of Diaper Rash.

Steroid creams sometimes recommended for Diaper Rash are not always the safest for your baby as the enclosed environment of a diaper can cause absorption of the steroid cream into the bloodstream and lead to side-effects.

NaturalEco Diaper Distress Cream is formulated with natural herbal and aromatherapeutic ingredients to safely and effectively prevent, soothe and clear your baby’s Diaper Rash, without the risk of unwanted side effects.

Use NaturalEco’s Diaper Distress Cream to:

  • Form a protective barrier on your baby’s skin, preventing Diaper Rash
  • Soothe irritated and itchy skin in the diaper area
  • Relieve red and raw Diaper Rash
  • Encourage natural healing of the skin
  • Treat and prevent bacterial or fungal infection

Diaper Distress Cream contains the following proven, natural ingredients:

Zinc Cream relieves raw, irritated skin and soothes redness and itchiness. Zinc also forms a protective layer when applied to the skin and promotes natural healing.

Comfrey soothes and heals inflamed tissues. It is an anti-inflammatory and helps to reduce swelling and pain whilst also stimulating the growth of new cells to speed up the process of healing.

Centella asiatica (Gotu Kola) is used topically to treat skin irritation and wounds. This herb is well-known for its gentle yet effective ability to stimulate healing and prevent formation of Scars.

Lavender Essential Oil is valued for its antiseptic, healing and calming properties and is wonderful for reducing discomfort and improving natural healing of Diaper Rash.

Tea Tree Oil is used widely for various skin conditions due to its anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and healing properties. Good for soothing all skin irritations.

Marigold (Calendula officinalis) is an herbal ingredient used to treat skin problems and promote healing of wounds. It is an excellent anti-inflammatory and prevents infection with its anti-bacterial, anti-viral and anti-fungal properties. Marigold has been clinically shown to assist the regeneration of damaged skin tissue.

Diaper Distress Cream comes in an aromacare carrier cream containing purified water, fractionated palm Kernel oil, hydrogenated palm oil, Glycerin (vegetable origin), glyceryl monostearate, stearic acid (vegetable origin), dimethicone fluid, polysorbate, carbomer, triethanolamine, methylparaben, ethylparaben and propylparaben

No artificial colors or fragrances are added.

How do I use Diaper Distress Cream?

Apply to clean skin after each diaper change. For external use only.

Testimonials

‘I used and loved your Pregnancy products so I was thrilled to find out that you have remedies for babies as well. Your Diaper Distress Cream really saved my baby from the continued discomfort of a bad case of Diaper Rash. He was crying almost constantly- I guess because it was painful or itchy or just plain uncomfortable! I felt so bad for him! After just one application of your cream he settled down and after 2 days the rash was pretty much a memory. Keep making your great natural products - it is wonderful to have natural and effective alternatives to the OTC and prescription meds.’ Monica G.

‘A big thank you from both me and my 2 month old daughter for your Diaper Distress Cream: what a life-saver! Her stubborn Diaper Rash was making us both miserable and I had tried a number of other products recommended by my doctor and pharmacist. Some of them cleared it up for a short while only for the rash to return with a vengeance. Diaper Distress Cream got rid of the rash and kept it away- at last! Thanks again!’ Cherie and Baby Lauren

What else can help?

  • Change your baby’s diaper often.
  • Let your baby’s skin dry completely before putting a clean diaper on and leave him/her diaper-free whenever possible.
  • Natural sunlight and fresh air are very beneficial to the diaper area (don’t overdo the sun though).
  • When putting a diaper on make sure that it is loose enough for air to circulate.
  • Avoid harsh Soaps, baby wipes, or any fragranced products.
  • If using cloth diapers, ensure that they are washed thoroughly in very hot water and that all detergent is thoroughly rinsed out of them.
  • Don’t use steroid creams on Diaper Rash - the enclosed environment of a diaper can cause absorption of the steroid cream into the bloodstream and lead to side-effects.
  • Remember that the Ask Us team is always there to help with free email support on health matters, including Breastfeeding and the health of your baby!

Diaper Distress Cream is manufactured according to the highest pharmaceutical standards. Individual ingredients are well-researched, natural, safe and effective.

UTI Causes

January 23rd, 2007

Although urine is normally sterile and does not contain bacteria, viruses, and fungi, it does contain fluids, salts, and wastes. Despite effectual body mechanisms for warding off bacteria entering the urinary tract, UTI does occur due to various reasons.

Most infections are caused by one type of bacteria, called Escherichia coli (E. coli), found mostly in the colon. An infection can occur when certain organisms from the digestive tract cling to the opening of the urethra after first having traveled all through the digestive tract. Bacteria, then, begins to multiply. When bacteria multiply, they enter the urethra, causing Urethritis. When bacteria move up to the bladder, they cause Cystitis. If Bladder Infection treatment for Cystitis is not prompt enough, the bacteria may multiply further and travel up from the ureter to the Kidneys, causing pyelonephritis.

Microorganisms such as, Chlamydia and Mycoplasma also cause UTI in both men and women. Such infections usually remain restricted to the urethra and the reproductive system. Chlamydia and Mycoplasma, unlike E. coli, can be transmitted through sexual contact, requiring Urinary Tract Infection cure for both partners.

During infancy, the kidney filters are immature and if there are many bacteria in the bloodstream, some are likely to pass through the Kidneys to urine, causing UTI. In older children and adults, infections usually occur through the down to upward route, which is, traveling from the urethra, up to the Kidneys. In the case of children still using diapers, bacteria from stool can remain for long periods at the meatus, the opening of the urethra at the end of the penis. The longer the period stool stays there results in bacteria entering the urinary tract through the urethra. Baby girls are more prone to this than baby boys. The urethra in women is shorter whereas the head of the penis is less likely to touch stool. In older girls, wiping during toilet training, which is usually back-to-front, results in pushing bacteria towards the vaginal/meatal area.

Sexual intercourse causes friction at the meatus that tends to thrust bacteria into the urethra. This applies to both men and women, teenage or adult. Again, incidences of UTI due to sexual activity are more in women than in men. Urination within fifteen minutes of sexual intercourse, however, helps in avoiding UTI. Although it is very rare, some women get UTI every time they have sex. Moreover, women who have polygamous sexual relationships are more prone to UTI than those who are monogamous.

Most Urinary Tract Infections are not serious. It is, however, highly advisable that on seeing the first signs of UTI, one should consult a competent physician. Any negligence or delay in Bladder Infection treatment and/or Urinary Tract Infection cure may lead to complex problems later on that may cause further harm to the urinary tract and body as a whole.

What else is important?

Prepare yourself mentally, physically and spiritually for the birth by reading books on Childbirth, joining a support group for Pregnant women, speaking to mothers of children or your own mother or mother-in-law.

Taking good care of yourself in the form of a balanced diet, getting enough rest, relieving stress, Meditating and talking with your partner about the future will be invaluable in preparing yourself for labor, birth and parenthood.

Organize a birth plan including the place you would like to deliver, who should be present and your preferences of medical interventions in different circumstances.

A supportive environment at the birth has been shown to be one of the most important factors in the speed of delivery and how much pain the mother feels. Think carefully about who you would like to have present at the birth for support and consider a trained doula or birthing assistant.

UTI Natural Remedies

January 23rd, 2007

Even though the matter can be debated either way, to disprove or prove, Natural Remedies can help prevent as well as get rid of Urinary Tract Infection. Some physicians are of the opinion that antibiotics enhance the risk of UTI recurring as more and more bacteria get resistant to prevalent medication. It should be kept in mind that changes in lifestyles and supportive measures are part and parcel of any naturopathy.

When talking of natural and alternative treatments in context of Urinary Tract Infection cure and Bladder Infection treatment we have a healthy choice of choosing from the following options:

The Concentration of hydrogen-ion (commonly known as pH level) in the urinary tract defines how favorable the urine is for bacterial growth. On a scale of 0 to 14, a level of 7 is basic and neutral whereas a level of less that 7 is acidic. Researches and studies conducted to find the causes of bacterial growth point towards benefits of an alkaline pH in urine for preventing Urinary Tract Infections and Minerals, especially citrates, alkalize the urine. A steady dose of calcium or magnesium citrate Supplements proves to be a great help in Bladder Infection treatment. As infected urine that remains in the bladder during the night can cause irritation to the bladder, mineral Supplements should be taken at bedtime for better effect.

Cranberry juice, by far the most renowned Natural Remedy, has been clinically proven to have antibacterial properties that restrict bacteria from adhering to the urethral tissue or bladder. Cranberry or blueberry juices in their pure form or at the most sweetened by apple or grape juice can disinfect the urinary tract to a great extent.

Homoeopathic remedies should be taken only after consulting a qualified consultant, as homoeopathy is a holistic system of curing and medication depends upon the overall appearance, symptoms, and even behavioral attitudes of the patients. Diabetic patients with UTI, however, should take homoeopathic remedies only in water, as the sugar content of the lactose pellets can be detrimental to their sugar levels.

Cantharis, Apis mellifica, Staphysagria, and Sarsasparilla, are four of the most commonly used Homeopathic Remedies for different symptoms of UTI.

Physical medicines can provide temporary relief from certain acute symptoms such as pain. You can apply Castor Oil directly to the skin to soothe the irritation. Another way in which you can get relief from pain is to cover a hot water bottle with cloth and apply it to the infected and painful area. This can ease pelvic pain along with cramping in the bladder.

You may choose any natural Urinary Tract Infection cure but take care to keep consulting your physician or naturopath regularly so that progress and side effects, if any, can be monitored and addressed to.

Testimonials

‘Being an “older” first-time mom I felt that I might have even more difficulty than other women in adjusting to my new baby and locating my mothering instincts. I decided to try your PureMother Essence. I must say that I felt like a complete “natural” despite never having had an affinity for other people’s children and am so grateful that caring for and loving my new baby girl came so easily and feels so “right”.

I used this remedy in my bath and took it in water for two weeks after I gave birth and it made such a difference! I felt deeply connected to my little one, Gareth, from the moment I heard his first cry and didn’t experience any of the tearfulness and vulnerability that was so prevalent after my first Childbirth.’ Elaine, IL

What else is important?

Trust yourself and your instincts. Mothering is a natural process that is learnt only by doing. Of course, you may sometimes need advice or a helping hand but remember that ultimately, you and your partner know your child the best.

Encourage your partner to bond with the new baby by holding, feeding, changing or just watching him/her.

Remember that this little life is 100% dependant on you for everything. Without you, your baby will not be able to survive. This makes it very important for you to care and nurture yourself during these early years. Your baby depends on you to look after yourself as well!

Establishing a routine early on will help you and your partner, as well as the new baby, feel more stable and contented. Include feeding times, nap times as well as periods during which you just relax, play and cuddle your little bundle of joy.

What causes interstitial cystitis, recommended diet, and cure

January 19th, 2007

Interstitial Cystitis is a urinary bladder disease, the cause of which is unknown to the science fraternity. However, several theories do exist which point towards it being an autoimmune, allergic, neurological, and/or genetic disease. What has definitely been established by various studies and research is that the quality of life for patients of interstitial Cystitis compares to that of the end stage of Renal Failure. Regardless of the origin, interstitial Cystitis leads to a damage of the bladder lining and also inhibits bladder cell proliferation, which in turn, have dangerous consequences.

Interstitial Cystitis is characterized by Frequent Urination of as often as every ten minutes, urgency, and pain in the bladder or supra-pelvis region. Pain usually increases and decreases as the bladder fills up and empties and in some cases, even while urinating. Interstitial Cystitis causes pelvic floor dysfunction making it difficult for patients to start their urine stream. Excessive urination at night, pain with sexual intercourse, difficulty in driving, traveling or working adds to the agony.

Some of the symptoms of interstitial Cystitis can easily be mistaken for symptoms of other UTI often leading to a misdirected strategy of Urinary Tract Infection cure.

Although the incidence is more in women, interstitial Cystitis can affect any individual of any age and strata of life. More and more men and women are being diagnosed as having this condition belying the earlier belief that it was a condition of Menopausal women only.

There are no definitive tests to diagnose interstitial Cystitis and an assortment of diagnostic tests and procedures are necessary before establishing its presence with some semblance of surety for proper Bladder Infection treatment. Apart from complete medical history and clinical examination, a number of tests, such as analysis, culture, and cytology of urine, cystoscopy, where a flexible tube is inserted through the urethra for viewing with the aid of a viewing device, and examination of biopsy of the bladder wall, may be required. In men, a laboratory examination of prostrate secretions too may have to be done.

Interstitial Cystitis does not respond very effectively to antibiotics. Treatment of interstitial Cystitis depends mainly on the age, health, and medical history of the patient. Due consideration has also to be paid to tolerance to specific medication. There are numerous natural, home, and Herbal Remedies for interstitial Cystitis which you may try only after educating yourself about them lest they have any detrimental effect.

Managing interstitial Cystitis requires certain diet modifications too although there is no scientific evidence to link it with diet. Alcohol, acidic foods, tomatoes, Spices, and citrus beverages are known to aggravate bladder irritation. As such, to be on the safer side, it is better to remove such items from your diet.

Avoiding smoking and a regular regime of exercise can go a long way to give support to the strategy of Urinary Tract Infection cure that the physician may resort to.

Treat and prevent stretchmarks from the inside out

January 19th, 2007

How can NaturalEco StretchEasy Formula help you?

Every Pregnant woman worries about Stretch Marks and the effect of Pregnancy on her body. While it is important to keep your skin well hydrated and in top condition from the outside (and our StretchEasy Massage Oil works wonders!) it is also very important to support and encourage healthy skin and connective tissue from the inside out.

For this purpose, NaturalEco has developed a specially selected formula of biochemic tissue salts known to benefit skin and connective tissue health keeping your skin in top form during and after Pregnancy.

What is StretchEasy Formula?

NaturalEco StretchEasy Formula contains biochemic tissue salts of Calcium fluoride, Calcium phosphate and Natrium muriaticum. Tissue salts are naturally occurring in the human body and are safe to use during Pregnancy.

They work internally to prevent Stretch Marks, improve skin and connective tissue tone, flexibility and elasticity and to prevent Water Retention and swollen ankles.

Use NaturalEco StretchEasy Tablets to:

StretchEasy Formula contains the following Biochemic Tissue Salts in a lactose tablet:

Calcium Fluoride is a tissue salt which helps strengthen, tone and restore elasticity to all cells and body tissues. It can help restore tone and elasticity to muscles, connective tissue, tendons and skin and improve flexibility and ease of movement in the body.

Natrium muriaticum is a biochemic tissue salt which helps maintain the body’s water balance and is an essential component of all living cells. This tissue salt has an excellent reputation for effectively treating a number of skin conditions.

Calcium Phosphate restores strength to the body tissues and is useful during times of growth and development. It is also useful for improving Circulation, bones and teeth - and can therefore be of benefit to your baby’s development too!

How do I use StretchEasy Formula?

We recommend that you begin using StretchEasy Formula from about the third or fourth month of Pregnancy. Suck 4 tablets in a clean mouth three times a day.

For maximum effect, use along with StretchEasy Massage Oil to encourage skin health and strength from inside and outside (and also enjoy a wonderful, relaxing aromatherapuetic massage at the same time!).

Testimonials

‘Dear NaturalEco Organics, I feel I have to write and tell you how amazed I am at the improvement in my skin after using your StretchEasy Formula. In recent years I have been feeling increasingly despondent at the state of my skin as age, gravity and pregnancies have taken their toll. I found your site and ordered StretchEasy Formula during my third (and last!) Pregnancy and thought I would give it a chance. I used this formula throughout my Pregnancy and could really see the difference. My skin felt supple and healthier than it has in years and Scars, blemishes and Stretch Marks all faded gradually- a far cry from the havoc usually wrought on my skin by Pregnancy. I will continue using this great supplement as long as it is available and look forward to seeing more improvements!’ Lauren C., Age 37

‘Thank you for your excellent Stretch Mark remedies! I have been prone to Stretch Marks since I was a teenager and seemed to get new ones every time I lost or gained even a few pounds. I was worried that after my Pregnancy I would end up completely covered in these unsightly stripes so I used the NaturalEco StretchEasy Formula and StretchEasy Massage Oil religiously. Not only is my belly still relatively free of Stretchmarks after almost the full 9 months, but even those Stretch Marks that I already had have faded and look much better than before I was Pregnant! ‘ Theresa, NC

What else is important?

There are a number of things you can do to maintain the integrity and health of your skin and prevent Stretch Marks that are so common in Pregnancy.

  1. The first step is to eat a healthy, balanced diet. You should not diet at all during Pregnancy but remember you don�t really need to eat for two either! It is best to monitor your weight gain and try not to exceed the recommendations that your doctor will have discussed with you. You should gain weight steadily throughout the 9 months of Pregnancy - a total of between 25 and 35 pounds. This way, you will not only ensure optimal nutritional health but your skin will also have a chance to stretch gradually rather than suddenly increase in size thereby creating Stretch Marks.

  2. It is also important to drink plenty of water to keep your skin and whole body well-hydrated. Dehydrated skin is more susceptible to all types of damage and scarring.

  3. Remember that once you have given birth you are still at risk for getting Stretch Marks due to the rapid loss of weight. Keep up with all your good habits at least until you are back at your approximate pre-Pregnancy weight. Eat healthily and get regular exercise to help return to your pre-Pregnancy weight rather than crash diet and risk getting Stretchmarks due to rapid weight loss! Breastfeeding will also help you to Lose Weight at a healthy pace and, contrary to popular opinion, will not cause Stretchmarks.

  4. Use StretchEasy Formula in combination with our aromatherapy StretchEasy Massage Oil for optimum skin health and maximum protection from Stretchmarks.

StretchEasy Formula is manufactured according to the highest pharmaceutical standards. Individual ingredients are well-researched, natural, safe and effective.

StretchEasy Formula is backed by our 60-day money-back guarantee so you can experience relief risk-free.
