Visitors to Beneveda's salt room enter with wizened lungs and leave with breath-balloons bursting with praise for the center's practitioners and philosophy of comprehensive medicine. The restorative effects of breathing salinated oxygen were first observed by European salt miners, who noticed a marked improvement in the breathing of their canaries. According to Beneveda, salt-mine air is rich in negative ions, which it says can improve chronic ear, nose, and throat ailments; allergies; and overdrawn positive-ion balances. Three 45-minute sessions in Beneveda's therapeutic microclimate aim to alleviate symptoms of respiratory ailments and the consequences of maintaining a throat-length tar-luge track.
Dermal fillers, laser therapies, and liquid face-lifts represent a trio of Clear Medical's noninvasive alternatives to cosmetic surgery. Doctors administer each treatment, using their knowledge of anatomy, physiology, and apples to reverse or repair signs of aging. In addition to age-management services, the medical personnel treat health concerns such as excess weight, migraines, and acne.
Many people may have misgivings about turning to cosmetic injectables such as Botox and Dysport, and no one understands those hesitations better than Dr. Sherly M. Soleiman, MD. Dr. Soleiman is a board-certified physician who has worked in urgent care facilities and family practices, but some years ago, she decided to expand her expertise into the field of cosmetic injectables after she suffered from a poorly-administered injection herself. "I had the medical skills and coordination in my hands to do better," she told Ventura Boulevard magazine.
Today, Dr. Soleiman continues to attend regular lectures and courses that allow her to deliver cosmetic injections as safely and efficiently as possible; in the past, she has even taken sculpting classes to enhance her understanding of facial symmetry. To help fight the aging process, she might recommend Botox, Dysport, or Juvederm injections, which help smooth wrinkles and diminish other signs of age, such as facial lines or a tattoo of Charlie Chaplin's autograph. And, in further pursuit of beauty and youth, she also utilizes the Obagi Skin Care System and can proscribe the lash-growing treatment Latisse.
Gabriela Carlos made her foray into chiropractic care at the age of 16. Fascinated with this mix of art and science, she pursued her doctorate at Cleveland Chiropractic College. She continued to work with seasoned chiropractors after graduation before opening Carlos Chiropractic Center. Now with 17 years of experience, this doctor of chiropractic tends to ailments with holistic treatments. Her adjustments work with the body to prevent its natural defense mechanisms from creating calcium deposits that can cause health problems down the road. When she isn't nudging vertebrae back into place, she performs physiotherapy techniques and offers nutritional advice such as "eat more veggies" and "glue is not a protein."
