Toronto, Canada, April 25, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- It is not a secret that our skin is fragile. Summer comes when we tend to get physically active. We spend more time outdoors, not only to get fresh air, but also some extra sunshine (vitamin D). Winters are also anticipated, but more so for other things than the weather itself.
Regardless of the season, our skin falls prey to a host of problems. Excessive sunshine, for instance, comes with the increased risk of developing skin cancer. When winter arrives, circulation to your skin decreases, and the resulting reduction of oxygen and nutrients hampers your body’s ability to flush out toxins & excess fluid. This is a major factor behind aging and also causes a dullish appearance to the skin.
Skin diseases are a major issue for Canadians. To counter this, Dr. Srajeldin BSc. N.D., and his team now offer new highly-effective treatments at their Naturopathic and Allergy clinic in Toronto. These treatments are not only based on sound principles of skin care and dermatology, but also using techniques from naturopathy as well.
Why Sunscreen May Not Be a Solution:
For most of us, the idea of skin protection starts and ends with sunscreen. However, depending on the product you use, you might be at greater risk of skin diseases. Research from over 20 years ago (published in The British Journal of Cancer) suggests a very strong correlation between sunscreen usage and the incidence of skin cancer. The report further stated that ozone depletion is not the cause for skin cancer. These claims were substantiated by further research.
Most sunscreens in the market contain Benzophenone or its derivatives, such as Oxybenzone, and Benzophenone-3 as the active ingredient. These absorb UVB rays and in some cases, even UVA rays as well. Not many people know that UVB rays are a primary cause of sunburns, while UVA rays increase the risk for skin cancer. In addition, the absorption of these rays can cause instability to the active, forming free-radicals, and then in turn cause DNA damage.
Skin specialists at the Naturopathic and Allergy Clinic in Toronto suggest that you should use other protective measures to block sun rays, such as wearing hats and light coloured shirts and pants/skirts, and avoiding sun exposure around noontime. If using sunscreen is a must, you should opt for physical forms of sunscreen; especially those that have ingredients such as titanium dioxide and zinc oxide.
The bottom line is that the traditional methods of skin protection are not that effective in the light of scientific research.
Naturopathic and Allergy Clinic:
The Naturopathic and Allergy Clinic in Toronto, Ontario is the of the largest naturopathic and allergy clinic in North America, with specialists for treating skin diseases as well. The unique approach employed at this clinic in Toronto is that instead of treating the skin disease, or a particular aspect of it, the medical staff offers holistic treatments to patients to enhance their general well-being. As one of their spokesmen stated recently:
“Our philosophy is simple: Treat the cause of the skin condition not just the apparent symptoms. The substantial achievements of our skin therapies has been credited to a strong and comprehensive understanding of skin physiology which involves our 2-step strategy which addresses the skin condition both internally and externally. At our clinic we teach you how to follow a simple yet effective plan to battle any skin problem you may be experiencing so you enjoy sincere and long lasting results.”
He further commented as follows:
“We seek out the best skin care therapies available with a focus on revival of cells, detoxification and revitalization which has given us world-wide recognition and placed our clinic at the leading edge in naturopathic medicine.”
