Hair No More!!

November 6th, 2014 • Posted by Debie Radcliff • Permalink

Waxing has become a very popular alternative to shaving. Women and men alike are opting for this service as it lasts a lot longer than shaving plus there are areas that are hard to reach.
Waxing hair removal uses a resin-based wax like product to remove the entire hair follicle from the root. Results can last up to six weeks. A warm wax mixture is spread over hair in the direction of its growth and a paper or cloth strip is then placed on top of soft wax. Once wax has slightly cooled or has grasped enough to the hair, it’s pulled off in the opposite direction of hair growth. The entire hair follicle should be removed from the root.
This is the procedure we use at Cleopatra's.

Texas Knows Allergy Relief

November 6th, 2014 • Posted by Debra Ford • Permalink

Seasonally every year, the air becomes inundated with minute particles – dust, pollen, mold spores - floating around in the air seeking a warm, moist home to land. Specifically, Cedar Fever in the winter can be so severe many suffer its severe symptoms with little or no relief. Year round on local news channels, weathermen have allergy reports right along with the weather.

While studying herbal remedies and the healing energy contained in those herbs, I came to the conclusion that the reason so many suffer with allergies to trees, plants, grasses and even mold is due to what is known as vibrational energy. All molecules vibrate at different frequencies; however, some molecules vibrate at the same frequency.

For example, Elderberry is a traditional herbal remedy for lung issues. Recent research has shown that Elderberry has the same vibrational energy as the tissues in our lungs. Red Raspberry has the same vibrational energy as the uterus and has been used historically by midwives to lessen labor pains.

Let me explain how vibrational energy relates to allergies. I’ll use Cedar Fever as an example. Cedar Fever is a seasonal, regional allergy in Central Texas that seems to spike with each cold snap.

As Texans go thru their day, they breathe in pollen from local cedar trees.
The pollen goes in their lungs and gets "stuck” in their tissues, embedded at the cellular level where it stays until the next allergy season. Cedar Fever is mild to non-existent for newcomers to the Lone Star State for their first few years of residence. The cedar pollen builds up in their tissues until that fateful cold snap when they get a full-blown case of Cedar Fever – itchy and water eyes, scratchy throat, and low energy.

My professional opinion is that these allergic reactions are triggered by the vibrational energy of the cedar pollen in the air irritating the cedar pollen trapped in our tissues. This cycle can continue for years if no actions are taken to detoxify and cleanse our cells of these allergens.

The first step is to cleanse the tissues. Liver detoxification, colon cleanse, and juice fasting can help clear out many of these irritating pollutants from our cells. Since complete detox may take some time, you need a safe, gentle homeopathic formula.

Certain homeopathic remedies can also bring temporary relief to many allergy symptoms, including stuffy nose and itchy eyes. Texas Knows Allergy Relief has a faithful following who find this product brings them the best over-the-counter relief for Cedar Fever. All American Allergy Relief is homeopathic remedy which addresses a wide variety of allergens found all across our country.

January 8, 2013  Are you starting off 2013 again with a diet plan??
Why call it a "diet plan"? Why not call it a life change?  One way to start off the new year is trying one of our Mummy Wraps.

Cleopatra's Mummy Wrap is a firming and toning process that produces results by detoxifying the body. This is not a water loss program, and not a dehydration type of body wrap. The loss is due to toxins being moved from the fat cells into the lymphatic system. You must drink water to flush the toxins from the lymphatic system. The body wrap solution continues to work in the body for three days. On the fourth day, have another body wrap. Most times, the measure prior to the wrap will be even small than after the previous wrap because of the continued water flush. 

  It is a great way to kick start your regimen along with adding more Fruits and Vegetables and Move!!
