Does the 100% 'natural look' work for you? Or are there little tweeks in your beauty routine that you couldn't live without?

just as light deprived of all shadows ceases to be enjoyed as light.'

Australia Day 2013 is almost upon us. How quickly is this month going by? Lucky for us, a good quality diet and skin care regime can help slow the aging process.

SAFE health + foods has all the highest quality, Australian made supplements you need to help you on your way, with Naturopathic consultations and advice if you need it. Call the Academy on 5568 7233 for more information or 'like' their page. Happy health and let us know your favorite product. We particularly like the Zinc and Vitamin C for keeping our skin nice and taut.


Facebook has made some changes and we are now getting 2 separate news feeds – our usual news feed which has all our personal friends posts in it and all posts that are sponsored (paid for) and as for the rest of us who can’t afford to pay for every post we make, our pages will be put into the new tab called ‘pages feed’ which you will need to physically click on to see my posts and majority of all your other favourite pages.

If Academy of Safe Therapies AST disappears completely from your feed, check your page for a tab on the left called ‘pages feed’ with a little orange flag, click it to see our posts.

Let everyone know because I don’t want to lose you! And, please feel free to copy and paste.

Let's keep small businesses alive ♥♥♥
Thanks to Deborah of The Sherbert Fountain :)

Some really informative and useful information in this article. Zinc makes such a big difference to our health and skin.

Zinc is an essential mineral found in every cell of the body, and is used in the activity of more than 300 enzymes. Approximately 40% of Americans and 2 billion people worldwide are thought to have diets deficient in zinc. As zinc is not produced by the body, all zinc needs to come through the diet or supplementation.

Possible symptoms:
• Dry skin/rashes
• Scars/stretch marks
• Dandruff
• Insomnia
• Depression
• Allergies
• Tremors
• Night blindness
• Light sensitivity
• Decline in libido
• Loss of taste or smell
• Loss of appetite
• Chronic diarrhoea
• Hair loss
• Macular degeneration
• Eye and skin lesions
• White flecks on nails

Zinc deficiency can lead to prostate disorders, including prostate cancer. Boosting zinc intake can increase testosterone levels, improve fertility, potency and s***m production, as well as reduce alopecia, from hair thinning through to baldness.

Restoring zinc levels can improve symptoms of PMS. As a zinc deficiency can lead to foetal development problems and labour difficulties, it is essential that all pregnant women, and those planning to conceive, have adequate zinc levels. Zinc ensures that oestrogen and progesterone are used correctly by the body, and can also defend against breast and ovarian cancer.

All ages:
Zinc supports normal growth and development throughout pregnancy, childhood and adolescence. Studies are beginning to show a trend that children with ADHD and autism are lower in zinc than healthy children. Zinc absorption declines with age so it is important to monitor zinc consumption as we get older, especially as it protects against macular degeneration. Zinc helps to eliminate a number of heavy metals from the body and possibly slows the progression of Alzheimer’s disease.

Taste and weight:
Zinc deficiency can cause a reduction in the senses of taste and smell. It can also result in a loss of appetite and may progress into anorexia nervosa.

Zinc is important for strengthening the immune system, and protecting against common colds and sore throats. Zinc can reduce the severity and duration of colds.

Essential functions:
Zinc protects cells against free radical damage and radiation, deters cell structural damage and can repair damaged DNA. Zinc supports neurological and cardiovascular function, and may lower blood glucose. Zinc can help to reduce liver damage caused by alcohol consumption.

Zinc is beneficial in treating such conditions as acne, eczema, psoriasis, dandruff and boils, as well as for promoting wound healing.

Digestive conditions, such as irritable bowel syndrome and Crohn's disease, are linked to zinc deficiency. Those experiencing digestive disorders should place focus on ensuring adequate zinc consumption.

Disease can be a contributing factor in the depletion of zinc from our bodies. Zinc deficiency can be caused by certain medications, especially diuretics, as well as blood pressure and acid-suppressing medications. Women taking birth control pills or hormone replacement therapy are at greater risk of being deficient in zinc. Alcoholics are also prone to zinc deficiency.

The Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) for zinc is 11mg for men and 8mg for women. Vegetarians need to be especially careful about ensuring an adequate intake of zinc.

Handy tip #2. Use a clean sponge or facecloth to effectively remove all traces of cleanser, even if you wash off in the shower.


Did you know that it's really important to double cleanse your skin at night? First cleanse is to wash away all the grime and makeup and the second is to give the pores a good clean ready for serums and moisturisers.
