Recognizing World Health Day 2014

All of us at Delete Tattoo Removal & Laser Salon firmly believe in being the healthiest version of ourselves. In recognition of World Health Day we want to highlight not only this year’s important WHO topic, but also some of our own tips on being healthy!

WHO’s main topics of discussion this year are vector and vector-borne diseases. These little organisms are more commonly found in places where drinking water and sanitation systems are problematic. Malaria and Dengue are the most deadly vector-borne diseases in the world. The presence of these and other vector and vector-borne diseases are showing up in places where they were previously unknown. There are now reports of Malaria and Dengue being in the United States. Florida and Puerto Rico have been hit the hardest, with over 20,000 cases being reported. We can focus our efforts at addressing these issues by donating our time and money toward organizations focused on improving health standards everywhere.

Donations can be made to the listed organizations by clicking on their names below:

– Donate to WHO

– Donate to the American Lyme Disease Foundation

– Donate to Malaria No More

 – Donate to Pan American and Health Education Foundation

Oftentimes, we find ourselves focused on things that either don’t promote our own good health, or don’t provide a healthy example for our family and friends. 

We’ve listed five actions that Deleter’s can take to help improve their overall health and possibly speed-up any tattoo removal process.

1. Fortify Your System

Give your immune system a boost of vitamins. We offer six customized Nutrient Infusions that can target and fortify your system with important vitamins and minerals to help boost, enhance, and replenish the nutrients your body’s needs. 

2. Eat Healthy, Be Healthy

We read an article by Kathleen Squires from the Wall Street Journal recently on the benefits of some amazing foods that we as a society sometimes neglect. Here’s a list of some of those foods and their benefits.

– Avocados: Great source of monounsaturated fat. Contains potassium, vitamins C and K (which promote bone density), and folate. Folate is by far the most important nutrient, as it decreases breast cancer and colon-cancer risk.

– Grass-Fed Beef: The key words here are ‘Grass-Fed.’ This type of meat contains more vitamin B and iron than corn-fed beef.

– Garlic: this pungent bulb is said to reduce your risk of breast and colon cancers, as well as being a great source of folate and sulfur (anticarcinogenics).

– Mushrooms: Fungi are more than just weird looking, they also contain minerals and vitamins B and D, which are vital to our health. Mushrooms are also said to help fight tumors of all kinds, as well as being an anti-inflammatory.

 3. Repair Your Skin

In addition to eating foods like mushrooms and avocados, which help to replenish your body, you can also use a treatment we provide called CIT (Collagen Induction Therapy). This treatment tightens, lifts, and rejuvenates skin by naturally stimulating collagen production. CIT is a holistic approach to skin therapy, and helps your tattoo removal process go more smoothly.

4. Remove Dead Skin Cells

Getting a microdermabrasion is not just for people who want to look younger, but also for those of us who have normal wear and tear on our skin. This facial treatment leaves your skin smoother, softer, and healthier!

5. Delete Harmful Inks

Many people don’t know that the FDA does not regulate the ingredients used in tattooing ink, so you may be shocked to find out that you could have a reaction to some colored inks. Reds, yellows, and glow-in-the-dark inks are the most harmful. These colors use mercury, cadmium, and plasticizers. Not all reds and yellows have these toxic ingredients, but a fair number of them do. The best way to reduce your risk of a possible reaction to harmful ink is just to ask before you get inked; and even if you still have that tattoo, we can help you Delete it!

6. Promote Awareness of Healthy Habits

Despite living in a first-country world, many Americans either neglect or don’t know how to develop healthy habits. Give gentle reminders to your friends and family about proper health habits, and how to create a healthy environment. Raising awareness will help to prevent vector and vector-borne diseases from becoming any more prominent than they already are within our own country, and around the world.
