Weight Management towards Healthier Lifestyle

Yesterday , July 25, 2014 Zen has launched its new technology of cleaning the colon through their machine that cleanses toxics that may prevent many diseases that most of the common because of our unbalance eating habits.  The highly reputable Dr. Mary Jane “MJ” Torres of the Zen Institute is almost synonymous to something that is out of the ordinary.
The Zen Institute, the first and true medical spa in the country, continues to introduce breakthrough products and services, within the concept of holistic wellness. It is their commitment to give the present technologies for prevention and major breakthroughs of disease and bacteria that may attack our bodies due to some handling of foods and its contents.
The clinic, with the calming effects of a spa, makes it a relaxing setting while medical procedures are done by licensed doctors and wellness consultants. Treatments are mostly non-surgical and non-invasive, which how Zen is known for- in the industry and the market.
And one of Zen’s popular programs is their Weight Management.
In addition to helping you feel and look better, achieving a healthier body weight is good for your overall health and well being. At Zen Institute, a particular science-based protocol is strictly in place. No short-cuts, no fast remedies. Clients are provided with individualized protocols and maintenance programs, overseen by doctors and wellness consultants.
Zen’s Weight Management programs are scientifically-proven to be safe and effective. Take for example- Colonics and IV Micro Nutrition.
Colon Hydrotherapy aka Colonics is a way to clean the colon apart from the non-surgical way of flushing toxins out of the body.
Guided by the philosophy that holistic health is a harmonious combination of medical science, creativity and aesthetic sense, The Zen Institute employs a process that is done with the use of the top of the line hydrotherapy machine and licensed doctors. The therapy usually lasts from 50 up to 60 minutes. On a long term basis, Colonics, can reach an even deeper layer of body/mind connections, emotional/mental baggage and energetic re-patterning.
Part of the program is a coffee cocktail to enhance faster metabolism and improve better absorption of the nutrients needed by the body. Colonics should be employed at least four times a year to facilitate the accumulation of the toxins in the body, however, it can be done weekly specially by those who don’t eat much vegetables, drink alcohol a lot, and have unhealthy diet and lifestyle. A patient who has undergone colonics should maintain a good and healthy diet as this encourages the growth of good bacteria in the body.
At a certain age, people start to feel that their liver is taking too much from all the drugs they use. This is what leads many to consider IV Micronutrition.
Intravenuous (IV) Micronutrition is a procedure that delivers micronutrients straight to the veins—no need to pass through the gastrointestinal system and liver enzymes. Hence, it spares the liver and gastrointestinal tract from further exposure to drugs. And nothing is lost in the process; all the nutrients in the right amounts get absorbed directly and become ready for the body to use.
At the Zen Institute, they offer four types of IV micronutrients: Immune Booster (consists of vitamin B-complex and thymus extract , which work together to improve T-cells), Revitalize (Vitamin B-complex, electrolytes, minerals, antioxidants, and amino acids), Rejuvenate (vitamin B-complex, electrolytes, minerals, antioxidants, and amino acids to enhance cell regeneration from within), and Weight Management (amino acids, L-carnatine, electrolytes, and vitamin C, to speed up metabolism and fat mobilization).
Overall, weight management, to make it effective, safe and precise, should observe a strict science-based protocol, in a holistic approach. And only a true, medical spa, can professionally give you the results you aim for.
The Zen Institute is located at 69 Scout Rallos St., Tomas Morato, Quezon City (02-441-1712/02-412-2528); Ground Floor, Bonifacio Technology Center, 31st St., Corner 2nd Avenue, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig (02-856-2027); and at the St. Frances Cabrini Medical Center, Maharlika Highway, Bgy. 2, Sto.Tomas, Batangas (+43-778-4811).
