Understanding cosmetic surgery: Botox certification

It can be very difficult for some people to look in a mirror. They spend their days avoiding reflect surfaces, and trying to make sure that they do not catch a glimpse of themselves as they walk past them. This is because they are truly unhappy with the way that they look, and this can be something that, in Christian circles, is even harder to confront. We know that we should glorify in the bodies that God has given us, and yet that does not always mean that we are completely happy in them. It can be difficult for those who wish to change the way that they look to marry that up to our understanding of our bodies as God’s temple, and our gratitude that we are even alive. However, sometimes the best way to understand something that we do not is to learn more about it. So how can a Christian understand cosmetic surgery through Botox certification?

Firstly, Botox certification does not only mean gaining the experience to make an individual look better on the outside. Botox certification means that someone can offer Botox injections in any part of their body, and many people go to a Botox administrator in order to bring comfort and relief to their bodies. There are many different types of illness that are treated using Botox, including constant unbearable migraines, nerve damage, and neck and back pain. Being able to offer relief in such circumstances is a great Christian duty, and it means that many people are able to lead normal lives – which they would not have been able to do without the Botox treatment.

Our Greatest Epidemic

It’s not heart disease, cancer or diabetes. By 2020 our greatest epidemic will be depression. Neuropsychologist Dr. Michelle Bengston says the number suffering from depression will be greater than heart disease, cancer, and diabetes combined.

Why such an increase?

Medical researchers don’t know. It’s far easier to see the connection between diet and diabetes or exercise and heart disease.

Perhaps depression is increasing because of our comparison complex. Can Facebook take some blame for our nation’s depression?

There is a dark side to social media. Beth Moore said,

“Our social media world is training us up for our greatest complex. We think not only do we need to be great, we need others to know it.”

Designing a home that Nurtures and Heals our Spirit

Our environment, our clothes and our house have the power to elevate or depress our spirits. If we have the right combination of elements in our surroundings, even the biggest worries and stress can be effectively reduced to a level that we can live with confidence and optimism.

It is not about having expensive home decorative, visiting fun places, looking good or starting to live a luxury life that we have always dreamt of. But it is about feeling good even in the most ordinary and regular lifestyle.

Some people like to live a simple life having only the most basic stuff at home, while others may like living an elegant life. For some a religious environment is what brings them comfort and connection with their personal self.

No matter how big, small, beautiful or standard our home is. A home is our sanctuary. It is our safe heaven, the best place to connect with our soul. It is our permanent living space that makes us what we are.

In order for us to build a home that enriches our day to day life, we must realize our unique nature, our vibration and what truly inspire us. For example, here is a little bit about how we can build a home that reflects our soul: FULL POST

Does vampire facial hurt more or less? That must be the better question to ask then. When what causes acne no longer bothers your skin, there’s a chance that marks left behind will continue to linger. That’s when a vampire facial may be able to step in.

Should you be scared?

There is nothing in the world of beauty too bizaare for women and men who want to stay looking forever youthful not to try. So, there’s really no point to be scared of a vampire facial.

Here are the top reasons why a vampire facial isn’t as scary as it sounds:

1. Vampire facial, technically known as Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), does involve blood but only your own. Blood must be the most infectious carrier of pathogens and diseases. You should be afraid of proposals to harvest blood from other people and injecting it to strategic points on your face because then you can get infected by countless blood-borne diseases. On the contrary, getting a facial shot of your own blood isn’t nearly as risky. More on the procedure later. FULL POST
