Beauty is both a hot topic in the modern world and a concern of human beings since ancient times. However, beauty is not only an aesthetic concern; it is important to our self image and also, a strong indicator of our physical health, mental well being and biochemical condition. Beauty is not superficial, and neither should our approach to beauty be anything less than serious and biologically correct.

It is no surprise that truly natural approaches to beauty which nutrify the body are revolutionary. With respect to skin health, nourishing the body from within with natural chemical compounds arising from nutritional extracts and precise dietary components, rather than slathering artificial compounds on our skin are key. And this approach is not biologically correct. The saying “Beauty is only skin deep” is a grand lie, biologically speaking, but we act like it is true when it comes to cosmetic focused health care.

Aloe Vera: A Desert Herb for Skin Health & Beauty

Desert Plant Offers a Healing Natural Gel for Injuries, Burns and Irritation

Aloe Vera herb supports healthy skin and healing - Island Healthworks

Aloe Vera Herb May Assist in Wound Healing and Skin Care

A member of the lily family, the Aloe Vera plant is a native of arid desert landscapes. Filled with a mineral and botanical active ingredient rich gel, this succulent survives drought by storing fluid inside each long, spiky leaf. Traditional uses of Aloe Vera include application of the gel straight from split open “leaves”, used for everything from sunburns to tissue damage and abrasions. The healing power of Aloe Vera also extends to cosmetic use, with properties that include soothing and softening the skin as well as providing a natural source of protection.  This herb contains proteolytic enzymes that break down dead tissues as well as nutrients that support healthy cellular division. The joint approach may therefore accelerate burn and wound healing.

Spider & other Arachnid Bites: A Public Health Discussion from Island Healthworks

Spider, Mite & Tick Bites Must be Understood and Defended Against in Canada

Island Healthworks Discusses Spider Bites & Other Arachnid Dangers

Cute, but watch out! Spiders & Other Arachnids May Deliver Serious Bites

Spiders, mites & ticks are arthropods from the arachnid class, with over 100,000 species described worldwide and several hundred families of these creatures known to science. Arachnids play important roles in global ecosystems, but often come into serious conflicts with humans as a result of their venomous or parasitic behaviors. Spiders are found on every continent except Antarctica, with ranges that extend to every known habitat excluding the air and the sea. Spiders prey on small animals, but may bite humans when threatened, which is incredibly frequent due to accidental human contact. Yvonne Dollard Perc of Island Healthworks is especially interested in raising awareness of spider bites, particularly in Canada after the loss of a nephew to medical complications believed to be potentially related to the bite of an introduced Hobo Spider.

Medical professionals may not always be equipped to recognize the nature of an animal bite including spider bites, and misdiagnosis or inadequate treatment may prove fatal or harmful. Many spider species have longer term, necrotic toxic effects or allergic complications associated with their venom that compound damage from bites.  Complications may develop right away after a bite or in the longer term. Proper diagnosis of the spider involved and treatment is essential. In the case of highly toxic species such as the Black Widow, effects are serious, almost immediate and may occur without proper hospital treatment.
