Here at Biomedicanna, we work long hours to ensure thousands of loyal customers' health and happiness. We dedicated this entire month to remind everyone how important it is to love themselves in many different ways, both emotionally and physically. Even though loving yourself and others are the noblest actions we take daily, we may sometimes run into difficulties and forget what matters the most. Today let's remember what ideas and tips both of our interview heroes have shared about loving others and yourself and how our products can help you love more deeply and passionately.
Love has many faces and expressions, yet not everyone can experience them equally as love is a very intimate emotion. Each of us has a different relationship with love; thus, we may devote our time and attention to entirely different aspects of our lives. At the same time, love means enjoying joyful moments with others, even if it is a time well-spent pampering ourselves. We can see that love is quite similar to a vast palette of colours, which mix to create one large painting – a happy, healthy and prosperous life. February's interview heroes Dominyka and Dainius both shared their ideas about love. As they come from two different sectors, not surprisingly, their views on love are quite different.
Dominyka Mikstaite is an owner of brand artumè, which combines healing methods and practices from Tibetan and Western Medicine to help people prevent diseases and preserve and nurture longevity and inner happiness. She understands love as having two components: 'mommy love' means altruistically accepting and unconditionally loving yourself. 'Daddy love' means having the necessary life skills to adapt to all live twists and turns to live to the fullest.
Dainius Jakucionis is a doctor psychotherapist, who besides helping people solve their psychological and emotional issues, is often a guest speaker in various training and public conferences. He also understands love as two different types: firstly, it is an emotional feeling, which people may have or may not. Secondly, love is an action and, despite knowing the first type of love or not, we can all do something for ourselves each day to show that we care about how we feel.
Despite coming from two entirely different sectors and expressing different approaches towards the same love subject, both Dominyka and Dainius shared similar tips towards achieving health, happiness and purposeful life. Their advice includes spending time in nature, sleeping for at least eight hours each day, creating and maintaining a daily routine that would provide joy rather than sadness and planning little breaks to spend time for yourself only. Besides, both interview heroes highlighted the importance of eating healthy - we tried to cover this topic in our previous blog dedicated to loving yourself through food. We even included a fantastic recipe for delicious pancakes to encourage you to start this tasty journey as soon as possible.
It's easy to spot love's versatility, but we all should look for those expressions of love that are closest to us and our way of living. Here at Biomedicanna, our teammates' eyes are burning with passion for sustainable, eco-friendly, vegan and cruelty-free self-care. All of our products check those boxes and are widely used to enrich our daily lives with love, yet they have different purposes and ways to improve our well-being.

CBD drops come in a variety of concentration levels as different people have different self-care and medical needs. CBD Paste Raw is the most potent hemp product we offer; nevertheless, all our products contain legal THC amounts.

Interview with Dominyka: Friendship Between Tibetan and Western Medicine
Here at Biomedicanna, we believe that the most remarkable journeys start with taking the smallest steps. Therefore, success in life begins with us and our relationship with our surroundings. We dedicated an entire month of February to encourage everyone to love ourselves and others so that each of us will be able to thrive, feel the best and succeed in every task we do. This month we will invite you to be more attentive to your own needs and build healthy relationships with your own body and the people you care about the most. Stay safe and authentic to yourself!
Let’s start the last month of the winter season from our chat with Dominyka. Dominyka Mikstaite is successfully steering her brand artumè, which combines healing methods and practices from both Tibetan and Western Medicine to help people prevent the occurrence of diseases and preserve and nurture longevity and inner happiness. Thanks to Dominyka’s therapy sessions and body procedures, many people have already discovered the harmony of their thoughts and body.
-Dominyka, tell us a bit about yourself and your way of life.
-Several years ago, I started my life project, which is called artumè. I provide direct help to people daily, helping them balance their lives as I have once been taught by Tibetan medicine and its elder practitioners. Guided by Buddhism's wisdom, I listen to what people themselves and their bodies say to me, I take care of them and provide a complex therapy and self-care session. I talk with them about nutritional and psychical procedures, external and emotional practices, which apply to specific personality types and fit their needs. Regardless of each case, I adopt a holistic approach and seek the balance of body, mind, and spirit, but the harmony can only be reached when the person itself wants to improve its wellbeing.
However, Tibetan medicine is only one side of the coin as in my everyday life I combine such a way of thinking with Western medicine practices. Not long ago, I joined the Lithuanian Association of Massage Therapists. Also, I am about to finish learning how to do medical massages to help rehabilitation patients and those who have not yet heard any medical diagnoses and want to improve their life quality and find their inner peace as the current situation in our country could be majorly improved. I believe that we all are connected and influence each other's decisions and both traditions help me share those clean and intelligent thoughts, that knowledge that runs through me and help people reach their harmony.
-It’s incredible to hear you talk this passionately but, correct me if I am wrong, all this knowledge and passion did not come in the blink of an eye, or it did?
-Oh, definitely! During my childhood years, I was that type of kid who enjoys spending time in nature, feeling the grass and seeing, hearing all the animals. I still call my younger self a gooseberries’ kid - it now seems that I spent all those years wandering in the forests and through meadows. Sadly, once I reached my teen years, the desire to be in the city with other people defeated nature, and I quickly forgot who I was at that time. I was not myself; I did not know who I wanted to be; I was not able to distinguish myself from the others, nor I was able to truly listen to what my body and mind have to say and even if I heard them, I was ignoring all those alert messages – those were dark times for me. At this challenging time, I discovered books about the human subconscious, I was amazed by what I read, but I held all those impulses and thoughts for myself not daring to share with anyone else especially my friends.
‘What could be better than to live surrounded by nature, wake up in the morning from the chirping of birds, after a sweet sleep drink a glass of warm water and humbly go for a swim in the lake or river, all at 5 o’clock in the morning?’
After finishing high school, I moved to the capital city to study, - difficulties hit me once again; only this time, they were more powerful and affected me more deeply. I soon developed specific symptoms that led to me being diagnosed with mental disorders. Of course, I tried to help myself by turning to Western medicine practices, but they were not much of a help and only made me feel better for a short time. Pills and medicine helped me, but I felt like I was missing something – I missed out conversations and could not freely talk about what I am going through at that time. Those mental issues are even harder to overcome for young persons who still have not yet figured themselves out if they have no one to talk to freely. Therefore, I started asking myself what was wrong, why those symptoms left that much of a footprint on my personality and wellbeing. I started digging deeper and found out about Buddhism, Tibetan medicine, and holistic approach towards a human being which made me realize that Western medicine is beneficial, yet it is not enough.
-Were those experiences the main reason you now have a different relationship with yourself and happier every day?
- Well, yes. Buddhism and Tibetan medicine encourage everyone to find their law of causes and consequences – it means finding reasons why you experience something and improving the situation by removing those triggers from the equation. It involves being close to, listening to and loving yourself. I think that loving yourself has many different components but only two phases or expressions, one which resonates with mom loving her kids. Another one is something equal to dad teaching his kids necessary life skills. The 'mommy love' means altruistically accepting your true self no matter what – just like the mother accepts the children, and unconditionally loves them. The 'daddy love' means being able to look for self-favourable solutions, ability to adapt and live life to the fullest.
Loving yourself means that the two inseparable – creative and logical – potentials teach you how to listen to your body, feelings, subsequent thoughts, and emotions. When one of them is lost or too powerful, we lose the balance, harmony, and it seems like everything we have created till now is falling apart. Likewise, we do not need to hold them too tightly in our clenched fists – we need to ask ourselves what those potentials are trying to tell us. Usually, they reveal unpleasant emotions and help us understand that acknowledging them is the first step towards solving them; therefore, they are paving our way towards a pleasant, joyful and healthy life for us.
-How loving yourself is different from loving others, creating and maintaining a healthy relationship with them?
-Loving others is mostly influenced by loving yourself. When we listen to ourselves, improve on various value, self-love, and harmony levels, we naturally grow those love fruits and can share them with others, with people who need them. In any case, we strongly influence each other; however, the most important thing is to purify those aspects yourself first. Loving others is far less intimate than loving yourself, but the trick here is to leave enough room for the other person and ourselves to grow and make personal decisions.
-Do the same words apply and describe your relationship with the people you help?
-Yes, if they would not, I probably would not even be here. artumè means being close to others and ourselves first; therefore, my lifestyle is intertwined with my professional path. Even though helping others means being responsible, I love to live a vibrant life and experience some positive changes from time to time. I love not having to count my life ‘Monday-to-Friday’. I am happy I once seek complicated answers as they allowed me to connect with others. All people that one moment or another was in my path have created me as I am today.
When I help others create themselves, I give my all and leave egoistic emotions behind. There is a person in front of me who is lost – with my hands, I help them find the right places for different pieces of their soul, mind, and body. I help them feel safe; I thank them for trusting me to lead them into an intimate journey called self-acceptance, love, health, happiness. I once experienced the same emotions, and tried to answer the same questions they are dealing with today – as I have a right to choose, I choose to give others pleasure, leading to deep self-knowledge. I am not planning to stop my mission or suppress my passion; I hear my clients saying those body procedures have a calming effect on them, lead them to harmonious life, and create a safe space to fall back to themselves. It would be unwise to stop, so the only way is to go forward.
-Tell us, what methods did you once use to help yourself which you use now to help others?
-I can only help the other person if he or she is willing to experience some changes. At first, I ask the person I will consult to make sure they have at least several hours of free time and do not rush anywhere as those factors can put an entire process at risk of failure. Once we met in person or online, we drink herbal tea – from natural dried herbs I picked myself – and talk about their feelings, emotions, and the signals their body is sending them. After that, we begin more serious work with a person’s body and massage muscles. One like to call it massage, for others, it is a body procedure, but for me, that is a general re-alignment of the whole organism.
After the therapy, me and a person I just helped stay to discuss new, emerging emotions and feelings. I also give them some herbal teas, hydrolats and phytol to use at home – when smells and tastes person experienced during the therapy, visits him or her at home. It allows them to rewind the time and go back to that exact moment even if I am not beside them.
-What are the most important tips you give to the people you help? Can you share them with our readers?
-I am one of those people who must try everything themselves before recommending it to others. Even though my dynamic personality does not allow me to stick to the same practices for long periods, some wellbeing rules must never be changed by anyone. Nature, sun and water are those three things that helped people improve their energy levels and general wellbeing for ages. However, one of the most constant nature’s principles is that nature cannot be called constant. Both Western and Tibetan medicine traditions say that seasons are critical for us to ensure health. We must be aware of seasonal changes and change our everyday practices accordingly.
As we live in a colder climate, we need to consume fatter and warmer foods, which would generate more energy and not let us get cold. Our all meals must be followed by a glass of warm water, to which we may add some honey or ginger – this mix allows us to maintain a healthier and more balanced metabolite system, stomach especially. Various beverages also help to increase our memory and brain functions.
Besides, during the winter season, we lack sunshine; thus, we lack vitamin D, we get tired more quickly and experience some severe mood swings. Sauna and massages with warm oil work together perfectly to relax and calm the central nervous system, improve the immune system and ensure that all other organs and bodily systems work continuously and up to speed. Of course, do not forget to dress for the weather and wear your scarf, hat, mittens, and warm socks during winter.
Nature is one of the most significant additions – even the shortest walk in a park improves health as it improves cardiovascular and lymphatic systems. Being in nature allows us to breathe more freely and supplies the brain with more oxygen; therefore, after spending our time in the fresh air, we feel relaxed and have plenty of great ideas.
We must also not forget to sleep! Getting around ten hours of sleep is useless if we sleep at the wrong time; each night from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m. is the best time to sleep as it is when the hormones responsible for our growth regenerate. Try meeting your sleeping schedule by getting around eight hours of sleep – you will instantly feel better, stronger, less stressed, and have more energy to take care of ourselves and the others.
-Thank you, we are more than glad that you agreed to share your experiences and knowledge with our readers.
New Year, New Skin – Leave Bad Skincare Routine in 2020!
New year, new life! - sounds like a perfect New Year’s resolution and, yet the chances to accomplish it are at all a time low. We now have been under quarantine restrictions for almost a year, thus our lives are limited within the scope of four walls. Of course, national lockdown does have some advantages – more time for us, and for the family, time for our hobbies and new things, new pets and new tasty home-made dishes, etc. On the other hand, we haven’t seen our friends eye-to-eye for a long time, we had to celebrate the biggest celebrations alone, and some people even lost their jobs due to the ongoing pandemic.
The situation is far from perfect, and the worst thing that it does not come alone – it brought us depression, anxiety, and overall sadness… Forced closure changes not only our souls but also our appearance, and, sadly, our sensitive skin suffers the most. How can we improve our skin’s wellbeing and overall beauty? What methods work best to recover damaged and irritated skin?
Skin’s Secrets – Things You Did and Didn’t Know Before
Skin is no doubt the most exposed organ of our bodies – and the biggest as well! Around two square meters of flesh performs several functions: it protects us and our internal parts from physical threats, thus acting as an immunity shield; it regulates the internal temperature and cools the body by protecting it against overheating; it allows us to sense everything around us by containing a sizable network of nerve cells. Significant skin functions evolved so that humans – and animals – could fully function in an unpredictable world. Speaking of evolution, it did not spare our skin change - modern human predecessors are known to be covered in hair from head to toe. Now, enough though our whole skin surface is still covered with hairs, some are very tiny and almost invisible for a naked eye – hair eventually started to lose its heating need as the climate got warmer.
Despite the weather and climate conditions, each skin deserved proper care, and while there are several different skin types, their all have their traits and needs. For example, a normal skin type is the easiest to take care of as the skin is neither dry nor oily, and the surface is smooth. On the other hand, people with oily skin type are a few times more likely to get pimples and blackheads, thus needing special cleansers and toners to reduce skin’s greasiness. Dry skin is flaky, yet the pores are barely visible; however, this does not protect the skin from various irritations, and such skin type is often associated with redness and blushes. Combination skin type has both dry and oily skin types traits, so, usually, people with such skin type have to use numerous products every day to treat different skin areas.
What My Skin Does and Doesn’t Like?
This question is easy and tricky to answer both at the same time. To make things more understandable, we should think of skin as a mirror, which exposes our good and bad habits – skin will lose its elasticity after years of smoking, and it will look younger when drinking loads of water and eating healthy foods. It may sound like skin kind of loves stability as it should eventually get used to the usual routine. However, any skin type hates things that last for too long, especially an unsuitable environment.
We intentionally first talked about the lockdown and being at home for long periods because dry indoor air, heating, and wintertime are skin’s worst enemies. Cold season suggests temperature fluctuations when it comes to outside and inside – our skin experience severe stress as a result and may show negative symptoms such as irritation, redness, dryness, or rash. Moreover, a cold period means warm yet dry premises – when surrounding air lacks humidity, skin starts to dry out as well; this usually leads to skin flaking, painful cracks, and chapped lips, various allergies.
Besides, we tend to associate the pandemic lockdown with tiredness and laziness – for this reason, we do not want to do anything and abandon ourselves both internally and externally. At first, we are several times more likely to order fast-food than to cook ourselves, and this habit leads to consuming large amounts of calories and nowhere to use them. Worthless nutrients accumulate in our bodies and eventually penetrate the surface of the skin in a form of painful acne and blackheads. Secondly, with nowhere to go, we tend to spend our days in comfortable pyjamas without washing our hair and, of course, without taking proper care of our skin. Even though we encourage everyone to stay natural, it’s not great to leave our skin alone in the fight for its beauty. The abandonment of our usual skincare routines occurred around the same time last year, and such a long period of neglected skin can often be the cause of various rashes, allergies, irritation, etc.
How I Can Help My Lovely Skin Recover?
We would not surprise anyone by saying that the first thing that leads to nice skin is proper hydration – drink enough water regularly no matter it is a lockdown or not. One of the most obvious ways to treat dry skin is to cover it with a protective layer. Extra-rich face and body cream work really well:
when you and your skin have to face cold and harsh weather outside!
when you and your skin have to fight dry air at home!
when you do not have your best makeup foundation on hand!
when you and your skin need something to treat painful skin inflammation or have an allergic reaction!
when your skin has dried out from using hand disinfectant or other chemicals!
when you and your skin are tired of using unnatural skincare products!
We encourage you to try cream with full-spectrum CBD that is safe for all skin types, gently pampers skin, ensures its nutrition and revitalization, and provide excellent antioxidant protection!
If you want something more than just a cream to help your skin recover from the lockdown and regain its beauty, try using air humidifiers and long-lasting masks. While the previous will help you maintain the optimal level of indoor humidity, the latter will help your skin absorb all the necessary materials and lock them inside of your skin ensuring the best possible result! Of course, you are more than just two square meters of skin – the lockdown is no reason to forget to take good care of your hair, nails, and, most importantly, the soul. Since there is a lot of free time left under quarantine conditions, spend it wisely: eat quality food and avoid sugary sweets (stay tuned for our newest product!), get regular sleep, if possible, take a walk outside in the fresh air, devote time to your hobbies and self-care.
The skin needs to be cared for in various ways, yet the best way is to combine internal and external skincare. Since appearance is the best business card for each of us, skin also shows how you feel deep inside – make sure you feel amazing!
That’s Too Sweet! or How Bad is Bad Sugar?
Each of us is sometimes visited by the desire to taste something delicious. Even though the understanding of deliciousness may differ from person to person, most of the time this feeling involves chocolate, ice cream, candy or lollypops – anything that’s sweet! However, we must control ourselves when eating sweet and sugary products as they are harmful to our bodies. Trust us – it is not a myth created by cheeky parents to steal sweets from their kids and eat them alone while the little ones are fast asleep. As we believe you have tons of sweets left in your pantry after Halloween that wait their moment to be eaten, be careful about the sugar you are likely to consume in no time… You understood correctly – we dedicated this blog to draw the line between bad and good sugar!
Sugar Does Not Grow on Trees, or Does It?
Sugar nowadays has become a somewhat usual ingredient in every meal or snack that we eat. However, we do not use the same sugar throughout all of the dishes or drinks. As the sugar name may differ, the methods of their production process are different as well, but as white sugar is the most popular, we invite you to get to know its production from a much closer perspective. White refined sugar gets extracted from two types of plants – sugarcanes and sugar beets.
The first of two is grown in mostly warm climate zones as sugarcane plants cannot survive the frost. Besides, large amounts of water are necessary to grow as much sugarcanes as would produce enough sugar to meet the demand. Once sugarcane crops are harvested, the plants are chopped and milled to extract their juices, which are later heated to produce thick syrup. Despite the already lengthy process, the manufacturers still need to evaporate the excess water from the syrup to achieve sugar crystals. However, the sugar journey does not end here as brown-coloured sugar crystals still need to be bleached with chemical compounds to produce a well-known white product.
Regarding the sugar extraction from sugar beets, this process is less complicated than the previously explained one. Sugar beets are usually harvested in autumn and then transported to the sugar production factories. After sugar beet's roots are washed (they are grown in fertile soil, so this step is not to be missed) and sliced, they are mixed with several chemical solutions and go through the process of evaporation, which creates white sugar crystals – no further refining process is needed.
How We Consume Sugar?
The sugar we consume every day mostly is what is called added sugar; however, the real difference lies in where this sugar is added to and by whom. It is quite clear how much sugar we consume by adding it to our morning coffee or tea, but things get more trickier when we drink soft drinks or store-bought sweets and snacks. If we decide to look closely at the food labels, we will see sugar listed as carbohydrates. It is a correct statement; however, we are much more likely to consume high fructose corn syrup, which is made from corn starch and not the usual sugar. This sugar-like sweetener is one of the most popular ingredients that manufacturers use even though it is not far from being banned in the EU and other countries. As for today, high fructose corn syrup’s production is subject to strict quotas and restriction documents, but it does not change the fact that we are still consuming it without really knowing when exactly.
How Harmful Sugar Really Is?
Excessive sugar intake can result in poor skin health and high blood pressure. However, as we tend not to know when we consume it, we often attribute these features to other life issues and not our diets. The scale of the problem gets revealed when we look more closely at food portion sizes, their nutritional value, and take into account the opinion of professionals. Medical researchers and dietitians agree that adults should have no more than 30 grams of sugar a day – same as seven sugar cubes; for kids and toddlers, these numbers must be several times smaller to maintain healthy life. Despite the righteousness of medical suggestions, they are very hard to live by as almost every store-bought product is packed to the brim with bad sugar. Bad sugar has no nutritional value, causes tiredness and constant hungriness, weight gain, and excess belly fat, which could turn into severe obesity. Besides, limitless sugar consumption is the straightest way to diabetes and heart diseases, and sadly these sicknesses are increasingly diagnosed with younger people and kids.
Are We Doomed, or Are There Any Alternatives to Bad Sugar?
The question above is quite silly as the very name ‘bad sugar’ suggests that there is another side of a coin – good or natural sugars. There are a bunch of natural sweeteners, which are far from processed and can sometimes be obtained straight from the plant. Natural sugars come in the shape of vegetables, fruits, and dairy products, but what they have in common is providing essential nutrients, which keep us healthy and strong. Stevia is one of the best-known plant-based sweeteners, which, despite being sweet, is also linked to lowering blood pressure and insulin levels; however, one still has to refine it to turn it into a more usable form.
Besides stevia, there are several other natural sweeteners used worldwide, which are less harmful to our organisms when compared to actual white refined sugar. Molasses are made from the same sugarcane plants and sugar beets as regular sugar but are not refined and has a syrup-like thick consistency. Maple syrup is also one of nature’s best natural sweeteners. Even if this product is quite expensive in stores, one can easily make it at home as the process of making it is simple – one has to boil the sap of maple trees until it thickens. Next comes coconut sugar, which is very similar to regular white sugar everyone usually uses as it is high in calories.
Now it’s time for the best natural sweetener of all times – good old honey! Even though it is still sugar, organic honey is far safer and healthier to use than table sugar. Full of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, honey is also that one product that is completely safe to use after its expiration date. The only thing that helps people separate natural honey from the fake one is its consistency, which crystalises after some time, but does not lose any healthy features.
Recipes with Natural Sugars
Keeping only natural sugars in your pantry does not mean you cannot pamper yourself with some casual yet super healthy sweets. However, most of the time, such natural sweets require to prepare in advance. Pick them, mix them, bake them, cut them, and only after that EAT THEM – we can guarantee that these recipes will be as sweet and healthy as they can be! Besides, we decided to turn the healthiness of our favourite treats up by a few notches and share only vegan-friendly recipe ideas. You can thank us later!
Granola. Mix oats, nuts, and seeds with some coconut oil and honey or maple syrup, and add your favourite dried fruits. Pour the mixture into a large cooking pan and spread evenly, bake until golden. Let the granola cool completely and cut into pieces and enjoy!
Green cocktails. Grab every vegetable and fruit that you can find nearby and put everything into a food processor. Add in some honey or maple syrup, add few drops of CBD Oil for that extra healthiness and let it mix!
Nature’s candy. Pick your favourite berries or cut fruits into bite-size pieces, place them evenly into a food dehydrator machine or onto a cooking pan, and use it accordingly. Dried fruits and berries are a great alternative to bad sugars themselves!
Ice Cream. Mix coconut milk, maple syrup, and tahini – sesame paste – in a food processor, blend them well and pour the mixture into an ice cream maker or spread evenly on a freezer-safe dish. Don’t forget to put some berries or fruits as toppings!
Gummy Candies. Blend apple juice, a little bit of agave or maple syrup and Agar-agar powder together, strain the mixture and bring it to simmer in a small saucepan. Let it cool for a bit, add few drops of CBD oil for that extra healthy kick and pour into gummy moulds. Freeze it, remove it and enjoy!
Here at Biomedicanna believe that we should live as healthy as possible, and this journey starts with cutting bad sugars out of our diets. Natural sugars and recipes are a great alternative to regular chocolate, candies, and other sugary bombs that we consume without even knowing that. Trust us - it is not that hard to feel energetic, strong, and healthy without using refined and processed sugar every day – you will not miss it!
How to Protect Yourself from the Freezing Cold?
Autumn has already conquered not only our lives but also wardrobes as falling tree leaves and harsh winds make us crave for warm and cosy moments. In reality, the autumn is much more than vivid colours and pumpkins. Sadly, it also means the temperature dropping lower and lower every single day. Morning frost follows cold weather and suggests winter season being just around the corner. Some may say that there is no bad weather, only inappropriate clothing, but is it really the case?
Why Cold Weather and Freezing Temperature are Dangerous?
It is no secret that some people may react to the same temperatures differently – one will feel cold while another one will say that the temperature is too warm for him or her to feel comfortable. However, no one tends to argue about the coldness of negative or very low temperatures, which are the attributes of late autumn and usually stays throughout the winter. It is widely known that cold temperatures cause physiological stress and can result in damaged body parts, such as ears, nose, cheeks, fingers or toes, etc. Damaged skin will be quickly covered in painful blisters, and different body parts will go numb and might turn black.
Cold weather makes our bodies lose heat faster than they are capable of producing. Such a condition is called hypothermia and is one of the most common problems which happen to people after being exposed to freezing temperatures as well as icy water. Hypothermia is a real threat to every person, as even as little as 10 to 15 minutes is enough to get frostbites and risk with an amputation of the limbs. Besides, cold temperatures increase the chance of experiencing heart failure as hearts try to work harder to keep us warm but are not able to.
Cold weather sounds scary, right? Well, it does not have to be like that! We will tell you all about how to prepare to face all of the freezing challenges thrown at us!
Strength to Fight the Cold Comes from Within
Medical researchers strive hard to educate the society about the cold and its effects on the human body. They all agree that the healthier the person is, the more easily he or she can cope with low temperatures. Therefore, the fight against the cold begins with one’s inner strength – the immune system. We should think of the immune system as an invisible shield protecting us not only from the cold but also from various viruses and bacteria; thus, strengthening the immune system is very important. However, it is necessary to maintain its power using the right methods.
Probably the most popular way of increasing the immune system’s toughness is including citrus fruits into one’s regular diet. Full of Vitamin C, lemons are natural antioxidants that improve a person’s immune barrier and has antiviral and antibacterial abilities. Besides nutritious and healthy foods, CBD products , and especially CBD oil drops , are gaining their popularity in the field of immune-strengthening at an impressive speed.
The Importance of Hot Fluids
Let’s not assume that sipping coffee on your way to work in the morning is only a fashion statement – it is a ritual of self-care, body awakening method, and excellent protection against frostbite. For these reasons, the reusable coffee cup – eco-friendliness is one of the biggest goals for humanity – must become your loyal companion during the cold season. However, medical practitioners advise opting for tea instead of coffee or choosing hot water and various herbs or berries mix. It does not matter that when you return home, it looks like you don’t need hot fluids anymore – homemade broths are considered not only delicious foods but also medicine, which you must include in your food ration. For example, Jewish Chicken soup is also called Jewish Penicillin that can significantly cut the time one spends being sick. Oral consumption is not the only way how hot fluids can help your body and immune system fight the cold – hot water baths are used widely throughout the world to warm people’s hands, feet, and whole bodies. Hot bubble baths with various extracts and natural oils both help relax and accelerate the functional processes of the body.
Protection Against the Cold from the Bottom to the Top
It’s true that negative temperatures can quickly take over the whole body, so the secret to the best protection against the cold is not letting it grab you in the first place. That means minimising the area of naked skin when going out in the cold and protecting uncovered skin patches as well. You ask how? We answer!
Proper footwear. Various traumas come together with winter frost, and only high-quality non-slip boots can protect you from spending valuable time in the A&E department of your local hospital. Yes, high-quality winter shoes can sometimes be expensive, but once you invested your money into them, you will surely be safe from trip and slip accidents. Keeping feet warm and dry is the key to a safe winter season as urinary tract inflammation, and kidney problems often start with soaking-wet shoes and socks after you did not see that puddle.
Layering clothes. The bigger - the better does not apply to dress up for the cold as here the number one rule is to layer outdoor clothing. Before going outside, you must protect yourself with at least 3 to 4 layers of clothes, starting with a long-sleeve shirt, jumper, thinner jacket, and, preferably, an eiderdown parka coat. For the bottoms, we advise you to wear thermo-leggings or pantyhose and warm pants on top of them; be aware that jeans material attracts the cold, so you should leave this piece of clothing for the higher temperatures.
Skin protection. Logically thinking, only our faces are left uncovered without any clothing during freezing colds. Although we can choose to wear a full-face covering ski-masks, we rarely to never do so. In such cases, it is necessary to maintain the richness and oily skin texture and to create moisture barriers between our actual skin and the frost. We recommend you try our new Extra-Rich Face & Body Cream against cold, which provides excellent antioxidant protection and also has anti-inflammatory properties. Besides that, this best winter cream is safe for people with oily or acne-prone skin. The good news does not end there - one of the key cream ingredients is CBD!
Life-saving accessories. Every season is better with the right stylish accessories, but it is even more advantageous if they can save your life or at least improve overall well-being. It is nice to think about these three accessories – gloves, scarf, and hat – as some winter protection trinity as they are valuable both individually and complement each other. Gloves are a must to protect fingers from the cold as limbs get the frostbite way faster than other body parts. Big and fluffy scarfs safeguard throats from inhaling cold air into one’s lungs and causing bronchial irritation, cough, and shortness of breath. A warm hat shields the head and protects the brain from such problems as confusion and loss of orientation, which usually leads to far more complicated issues like hypothermia.
No season shows up unexpectedly, but cold weather can do just that! When it comes to strengthening your immune system, it should become your lifetime goal – a strong immune system means protection from many, often invisible problems. Besides that, you should always carry with yourself rich cream against the cold and a reusable cup for hot beverages – these things will protect you from the outside and strengthen from within. Even though you cannot take your whole wardrobe together with yourself all the times, have some outfits at home prepared in advance, so when you see snow outside your window, it will take you less time to get ready to make snow angels!
Oncological Diseases: Knowing Your Enemy
No single medical diagnosis does not mean the end of the world. Of course, one may feel frustrated and lost once a doctor delivers the news about a serious disease: they get angry both at themselves and at the people around them, they quickly choose to blame themselves and others for untimely work and neglect. Our bodies do not thank us for further stressing and pouring rain of emotions as it only weakens both organism and spirit. Even though there is sometimes nothing that we may do to avoid diseases, we can always ease them. How to deal with one of the most anticipated diagnoses – oncological diseases?
What we know about oncological diseases?
Our bodies are a complex connection between trillions of cells every having different functionality. Once old cells die, new cells take their place. However, this ordinary process may be disturbed when cells start to grow abnormally and out of control. Such cells form tumours, which can be two types – malignant and benign. The latter type of tumours is not cancer as benign masses tend to grow slowly but do not spread. Malignant tumours, on the other hand, can grow incredibly quickly, and as they spread throughout the body, they destroy normal healthy tissue along the way.
Oncologists distinguish four main groups of oncological diseases:
carcinomas are the most common type of cancer. It usually comes in the form of solid tumour which starts in the skin or the tissue covering internal organs and glands. Carcinomas include lung, prostate, colon cancer, etc., but the most dangerous one is considered breast cancer – according to the World Health Organization, breast cancer killed around half a million of women in 2011;
sarcomas are less common but just as dangerous. It starts in connective tissue cells and includes cartilage, blood and lymph vessel, fat, muscle, tendon, and bone cells;
leukaemia is a blood cancer that keeps bone marrow from creating normal levels of red and white blood cells and platelets. Sadly, leukaemia is the most common type of cancer which affects children and teenagers; it is also one of the toughest to cure;
lymphoma cancer starts in lymphocytes, which are part of the immune system.
Besides these four types of cancer, there are many others – as they are less common, one should consider further researching them and consulting expert oncologists. However, the typology of oncological diseases does not end here: the severity of cancer diagnosis is determined by stages I to IV. Stage I means the cancerous tumour is small and has not yet grown into nearby tissues; stage IV means the cancer is advanced and has already spread into other parts of the body.
What we know about causes of cancer?
The diagnosis of the oncological disease can be like thunder from the clear sky. However, paying regular visits to doctors and signing up for preventive screenings help. Besides, they are compensated by government initiatives. The numbers of oncological diseases have reached never seen highs in recent years with the major cases being diagnosed in the last stages having little to no chance of saving a person’s life. As the largest part of losses could have been avoided by regular preventing screenings, a lot of countries have declared the prevention of oncological diseases a national health objective.
Expert oncologists advise everyone, no matter their age or sex, to have a discussion with family practitioners about the genetic side and prevention of oncological diseases if they seem to run in the family. As genes are inherited, the causes of cancer may lie within the family’s history. The fact itself that your mum, dad, or one of the grandparents have fought cancer does not mean that you will do too, but the risk of oncological diseases is much higher this way.
Doctors also link some types of cancer with certain factors, which may not directly cause disease but can increase the risk of receiving the bad news. Reducing the risk factors helps to avoid oncological diseases, but the first step to a healthy life is acknowledging the vulnerability of life itself. Smoking, alcohol, high-fat diet, or constant exposure to UV light are the things that cause lung, skin, liver, or colon cancer, etc. Adults, in this case, are more vulnerable when compared to children as these factors are most harmful after long periods of exposure.
Doctors and medical researches do not rule out the possibility of getting cancer after virus exposure. As cancer is not contagious, you will never get it from contacting another person. However, as HIV causes AIDS, it can also lead to cell changes, which may develop into oncological diseases. It is more common to get cancer after being exposed to certain environmental factors for long periods. Such conditions include working with chemicals, in construction, or doing similar jobs as defective personal protection equipment can lead to higher levels of dangerous exposure.
What we know about curing oncological diseases?
Any type of cancer is easiest to cure when diagnosed in the earliest stages. Even if one finds themselves fighting this disease, being diagnosed with stage 1 cancer is nothing to worry about as there are plenty of methods and experimental medicine to cure it. Some types of cancer may be removed surgically, but there is always the risk of cancerous cells to spread. There is also a way of finding donors, which is usually close family members, to donate their bone marrow to the patient of leukaemia with a change of curing it and prolonging a person’s life. Besides, chemotherapy is considered to be the most common way; chemotherapy uses several types of chemotherapeutic agents, which may be given with curative intent, or may prolong the life of patients together with reducing cancer symptoms.
Medical researches and oncologists agree that chemotherapy helps cancer patients survive, but such treatment also has a negative side. The most common side-effect of chemotherapy is hair loss; it is also the most visible one as other side-effects include gastrointestinal distress, anaemia, infertility, and sometimes can lead to significant organ damage. Other side-effects of chemotherapy also include extensive nausea and vomiting. As these issues are quite simple to cure for ordinary human with the help from a local drugstore, cancer patients are forced to use extremely powerful drugs which has their own side-effects.
Some cancer patients who experience very strong side-effects and constant pain choose to use products from nature to ease it including CBD. There is no reliable information or medical research of CBD oil curing oncological diseases, but many cancer patients use it for relieving pain, fever, nausea, vomiting, etc. As symptoms of both cancer and chemotherapy are pretty severe and exhausting, patients and their family members are looking for CBD oil drops or CBG paste with the highest possible product concentration on the market as it has the highest potential.
The diagnose of oncological diseases does not mean the end of the world, so let’s just think of it as a tough chapter from your favourite video game, which everyone will eventually pass. The disease itself does not matter as long as you are surrounded by your loved ones caring and rooting for you every step of the way. It helps to know every inch of your body very well and spending enough time for quality self-care procedures, including preventive cancer screenings – it saves lives.

10 Tips to Help You Survive the Autumn!
As we are saying farewell to summer, autumn is knocking on our doors, ready to enter and enrich our lives with a stunning palette of colour-changing leaves. Even though this situation may seem like coming straight out of fairy tale, heavy rains, strong winds, shorter, darker and colder days reveals the real face of the autumn season. Various illnesses and hardships follow the gloomy weather and threaten to mess up our lives even more. Only the ones who prepare for such challenges may resist them, but how to achieve that? Read carefully – we have prepared a lecture for you about immune system strengthening techniques, self-care, and, of course, pumpkins!
Tip No. 1 – Appropriate clothing
Autumn really gets onto our nerves as weather conditions often change every minute and an uncountable number of times throughout the day. The combination of umbrella and raincoat must become your new best friend this season. Water-resistant footwear will allow you to spend the autumn jumping in puddles like no big deal, the thicker jacket will protect from chilly winds, and soft scarf will keep you warm and cosy. Don’t blame the weather – there is nothing wrong with him, there are only wrong clothing choices!
As autumn distresses often leads to depression, self-love is the best way to avoid it. Meditation is proved helpful as it reduces the levels of stress and anxiety. Of course, a little herbal nudge to your organism will not only help to have calmer thoughts but strengthen the immune system as well. However, our bodies can be as tired as our thoughts, but there is nothing a little home spa can’t fix! Incense, chill music, flower petals, hot foam bath, and massages from your loved one will comfort you during the darkest hours of autumn and inspire for new challenges.
Tip No. 4 – Home decoration
To prepare for autumn means to prepare not only our souls and bodies but also the environment around the home. Home décor does not mean hanging paper bat cut-outs or putting a carved pumpkin in every corner of your house even though Halloween is just around the corner. Sometimes little cinnamon, apples or vanilla-scented candle, thick blanket, lighted fireplace, or a bouquet of seasonal flowers is all that you need to surround yourself with pleasant autumn emotions.
Tip No. 5 – Hobbies
Today is the day to start thinking of how you will spend dark and cold autumn evenings. Self-care begins with quality time-spending techniques and smart ways to direct one’s attention further from seasonal distresses. Consider reading a book, watching a movie or TV series, handcrafting, doing crosswords, or any other kind of puzzles. Autumn is a perfect time to start getting ready for the summer bikini season – pay a visit to the gym once in a while!
Tip No. 6 – Food
The autumn is the season of harvesting everything that has grown in our gardens or forests throughout the summer. Many different foods add up to benefiting our organisms, so it would be a complete waste of products not to eat them or store them for winter. For example, pumpkins are considered full of nutrients that strengthen the immune system while including mushrooms in your daily diet increase bodies’ ability to fights various illnesses.
Tip No. 7 – Active lifestyle
It is easy to grow lazy when the rain is pouring down outside your room window. Regular activities such as jogging, hiking, cycling, or gymnastics contribute to one’s well-being and increase the chances to survive the autumn. We strongly recommend you going outside, enjoying the last bits of sun, exercising out in the fresh air, and appreciating the beauty of changing nature. As autumn comes only once a year, there is no better opportunity than celebrate it actively!
Tip No. 8 – Vitamins
Even though healthy eating habits and an active lifestyle are considered secrets to overall well-being, strong immune system, and autumn survival, sometimes that is not enough. Our bodies are not capable of producing certain kinds of vitamins; hence, their benefits are available only thanks to supplements. Beta-glucans are one of the smartest ways to strengthen the immune system and avoid moments when plans get messed by health problems caused by harsh weather. As beta-glucans have even more beneficial properties, specialists advise using them throughout the whole year!
Tip No. 9 – Quality sleep
The autumn means coming back to school, work or university, thus saying sad goodbyes to happy summer holiday moments. Such time often results in higher stress and anxiety levels, which, in turn, negatively affects the whole body starting with memory and finishing with body motility capabilities. Besides that, self-care starts with a good night sleep, so quality rest must be everyone’s top priority this season.
Tip No. 10 – Daily routine
As autumn sometimes may cause a disbalance in lives and organisms, creating a daily routine helps people feel like true masters of their lives. Mobile calendars or cute little notebooks and planners ensure that one’s daily tasks get completed in time, and there is no chance left for autumn distresses to interfere with reaching every goal possible. You cannot imagine how much free time you have in a day to spend it for self-love and getting rid of autumn troubles!

Brace yourself – autumn viruses are coming!
Perhaps the most beautiful time of the year is just around the corner. Autumn will reward us with nature adorned with all colours, falling leaves, and the smell of freshly baked cinnamon apple pie. As we try to enjoy the last bits of sun and warmth and high temperatures, our plans are disrupted every year by runny noses, nasty coughing, and headaches, which are the most common signs of autumn viruses. How to avoid catching a cold? How to fight off seasonal viruses? How the immune system works and protects us? How to prepare for autumn diseases? Today we will answer these and many other questions – get ready!
Autumn viruses: what are we dealing with?
Seasonal infections and viruses are nothing new as we are more than used to call the upcoming season a ‘flu season.’ The vast majority of seasonal diseases such as cold are linked to being viral and easy to catch from another person, who already complains about a sore throat, coughing, runny nose, and fever. The flu, for example, is an infectious disease caused by a virus attacking one’s immune system as it is compromised.
As symptoms are common for many different seasonal sicknesses, family doctors, practitioners, research performing doctors, and other professionals distinguish a fairly clear timeline suitable for most cases. According to them, cold symptoms such as a stuffy nose, discomfort, sneezing, fever, and body aches take one to three days to peak, and the next days are the worst. Even though a cold usually ends by day ten, it is contagious throughout the whole period of being sick.
Various seasonal sicknesses can affect not only our respiratory system but the whole organism: skin, muscles, internal organs, metabolism, etc. Unnoticed or untreated sicknesses can cause great discomfort as it takes significantly more time to fully recover because our bodies are already too weak at that time as we start using medication or visit the professional doctors.
Our hero – the immune system!
It is easy and quick to start this unpleasant trend of being sick; however, it takes a lot of time and effort to fight those autumn viruses off for good. It’s the immune system that does all of the hard work protecting us every day of the year and especially during the autumn. So, what exactly is the immune system?
The immune system guards our bodies against unwanted threats such as viruses, bacteria, toxins, and infections. It does not mean that you will never be sick if your immune system is indestructible - the immune system guarantees that one tiny virus that gets into your body will not grow to a massive extent and become fatal. However, it is easy to know whether one’s immune system is working as high body temperatures and swelling indicates it.
The immune system depends on billions and billions of defensive white blood cells also known as leukocytes. As they are traveling throughout our cardiovascular system they screen, firstly, our blood for threats, together with other tissues and organs. Once the leukocytes detect invaders, our immune system starts operating and releases special proteins – antibodies, which fight those unwanted and harmful substances.
There are many different threats to one’s body, so the immune system must be equally adaptable to be able to defend one’s organism in any case. The immune system usually develops a long-term immunity, which means that one store information about the attackers and will know next time how to deal with it quicker than the last time.
Vitamins to prepare for autumn diseases!
There are many ways to strengthen the immune system – it’s easy to help your organism to protect yourself and prepare for autumn viruses season once you know what you need. We may be making a big mistake if we fill our bodies with unnecessary substances as excess is as bad as scarcity. Plenty of foods are rich in various vitamins and nutrients that complement our organisms, but we often are not aware of their existence and do not know how useful they are. Let’s expand our knowledge of vitamins that benefit our immune systems!
Everyone must have heard about vitamin C as its intake is one of the greatest ways to boost one’s immune system. Our organisms do not produce or store vitamin C for long periods, so we must ensure a daily intake of vitamin C as they stimulate the generation of white blood cells.
Vitamin E helps our immune system to fight off various infections and viruses; it positively affects the immune system’s cells and makes them more productive. However, numerous studies have shown that the best results are achieved when vitamin E is taken together with vitamin C.
Vitamin B6 supports biochemical reactions, and together with other vitamins from group B, they also help turn food into energy, thus, providing our bodies with necessary nutrients. Vitamin B6 is considered to be that one significant substance that benefits many different parts of our bodies; however, as our bodies do not produce, we need to obtain it from our everyday diets and supplements.
Vitamin D is essential for an effective immune system’s response. Low levels of this vitamin are linked with frequent illnesses and infections, so seasonal cold and flu can be prevented once ensuring sufficient amounts of vitamin D in our bodies. As we can acquire vitamin D from being in the sunlight, now it is the best time to go outside, spend some time tanning, and prepare for autumn diseases in a fun and easy way!
Even though beta-glucans are not vitamins but fibers, their enhancing abilities does just that. Beta-glucans strengthen the immune system, reduces symptoms of fever, and lowers the chances of getting a sometimes-fatal seasonal infection. They also ensure the smooth functioning of our bodies and feature specific anti-inflammatory properties, thus shortening the period of being sick. As beta-glucans are a natural way to improve one’s overall health and well-being, one must include beta-gluten-rich foods into a diet.
People often say that you should think about everything in advance to achieve the best results sometime later. Although the immune system forms throughout our whole lives, today is the day to prepare for autumn viruses season!Stay tuned as more tips to survive the autumn disaster follow next week.
It's time for ECO!
Today is a great day, just as many others. But it’s a special day because we present a topic that’s a big interest for many of us, - cosmetics! For you and only, let us tell you a wee history, followed up by research and our observations…
So, cosmetics. It has become a necessity and a big part of our daily routines for most of us, but it is not a modern invention, nevertheless! Humans have used various substances to alter their appearance or accentuate their features for at least 10,000 years, and possibly a lot longer.
Women in Ancient Egypt used kohl, a substance containing powdered galena (lead sulphide—PbS) to darken their eyelids, and Cleopatra is said to have bathed in milk to whiten and soften her skin...
By 3000 B.C men and women in China had begun to stain their fingernails with colours according to their social class, while Greek women used poisonous lead carbonate (PbCO3) to achieve a pale complexion. Clays were ground into pastes for cosmetic use in traditional African societies and indigenous Australians still use a wide range of crushed rocks and minerals to create body paint for ceremonies and initiations.
Today, cosmetics are a big business. We use cosmetics to cleanse, perfume, protect and change the appearance of our bodies or to alter its odours. The market has bloomed to such an extent that not only are there different cosmetics for every part of the body, - there are different ones for different seasons too!
But before makeup is marketed to us, it is tested on animals. Do you ever wonder why is it so? Because the cosmetics we trust to make us beautiful are full of so many harmful chemicals. And despite that it makes us look good temporarily, in the end they are going to leave an ugly effect. Here are some of the most common side effects of the cosmetics that you apply without a second thought:
Dries our skin / makes it oily
Some foundations and powders tend to dry out your skin and make it look flaky and ashen. Such cosmetics can also cause cracks and fine wrinkles in your skin, which could cause infections to develop.
It ages our skin quicker
The chemicals used in makeup contribute to the ageing of your skin because they dry out the natural oils and essential vitamins and minerals present in human skin. This causes your skin to lose its natural moisture and texture, and it starts to develop wrinkles and dry patches. Prolonged usage of makeup will make your skin look older than it is. And since it is almost impossible to get the youthful glow back, cosmetics marketers are launching products that help counter the effect of aging that has been cause by them.
It provokes allergies
Cosmetics such as deodorants and antiperspirants contain alcohol and can cause redness and irritation and itching which may eventually lead to pigmentation of skin. They also block your sweat glands and can lead to conditions like contact dermatitis and allergies. From rashes to inflammation, the wrong kind of cosmetic that is not compatible with your skin type can have a deep - rooted impact on your skin.
Can cause cancer
The most threatening side effects of excessive use of cosmetics is skin cancer. Lipstick contains aluminum which may cause long term anemia and even glucose intolerance. Many products contain chemicals like zinc oxide and barium sulphate which are toxic and can result in organ failure, especially that of the kidney and liver. Cosmetics like body moisturizers can disturb the thyroid content of the body. Parabens, a preservative used heavily in cosmetics has been linked to causes of cancer.
What means organic?
While most cosmetics are effective almost instantly, we can see that they are damaging in the ‘long run’. That’s our hint to better look for organic products full of natural remedies. Nevertheless, when natural can mean, “we use some natural ingredients,” and cruelty-free can mean “we still test our products on animals in China,” we have to know how to read a label, more now than ever.
One of the biggest misconceptions is the idea of natural versus organic and that they are interchangeable labels. A product can be natural and organic, but not all natural products are organic, or even 100 percent natural.
If the product is organic, that means it is made of 95 percent or more of organic ingredients derived from plant sources. All of ingredients were grown without pesticides, bioengineered genes, or petroleum-based fertilizers, which could be toxic to the environment. Natural products are simply derived from natural sources without added synthetic compounds.
What are the benefits?
Everything Will Smell Better
When ingredients are natural and organic, everything is naturally-scented. Your rose cream is made from real rose water and your essential oils are from the real plant, never an imitation. After a few weeks, you’ll be able to notice the difference between an imitation and a natural fragrance, and you’ll never want to switch back.
Your skin will be softer
Did you know that many drugstore and luxury brands add drying agents to products such as moisturizers, lip balm, and conditioner? If you actually want your products to moisturize, make sure they say “sulfate-free.”
Your skin might clear up
The reason this is a “might” is because everyone’s tolerance varies for different ingredients, both natural and unnatural. You might break out using only toxic makeup and switching to organic makeup might be your cure.
It’s better for your wallet (in the long run)
Anybody who’s ever switched from drugstore skin care to natural and organic skincare might be laughing out loud at the fact that the switch could be good for your wallet, but there is merit to this statement! The average consumer buys products from a variety of brands with prices that vary from a few euros to a couple hundred euros. If you replace your luxury, designer, or even spa brands with natural and organic brands, you are very likely to spend much less. Plus you may find that switching to organic and natural products improves your skin and simplifies your routine, meaning less money spent on other products as a ‘compensation’!
To summarize, yes, most cosmetics have their own unique way to make you feel or look good. But temporarily! Choosing organic (really, organic) products has a much more useful and rich purpose in the long run. If you are looking for a product to buy, think twice before you do it, and make sure you really need it. In case you are wondering of where to get a high quality, very well taken care of and preserved cosmetics, check our products. In our company, we use only all - natural and organic remedies to make sure no product has any unneeded ingredient just to make it look like it's better ‘coloured’ or scented. Please, take care of your health and let us help you!
