WELLNESS TIP OF THE WEEK
Break a Sweat – by Dr James Wu Solace Wellness Center & MedSpa
Skin with clear pores, adequate water hydration and a minimal layer of dead cells allows your sweat to carry toxins out of your body through your skin. So what is the best way to sweat? Most of the time you sweat because you are hot. When the surface temperature rises on your skin, you sweat to cool off and control your body temperature. This is what happens on a hot, humid day. But you can also sweat when your deeper core body temperature rises, like when you exercise or when you have a fever. You break into a sweat to lower this deeper core temperature. This deeper sweat is where you can detox, eliminating the toxins trapped inside your tissues and sweating them out through your skin. You can produce this deeper, detoxing sweat with a far infrared sauna. Unlike surface temperature heating with traditional dry heat or steam heat saunas, far infrared heat saunas stimulates the deeper detoxing sweat that you want. Aside from exercise and having a fever because of disease, these saunas are the only other effective way to create this deep core heat and sweat.
At Solace, we will help you maintain good skin and body health and combine that with our Far Infrared Saunas so that your sweat can take care of those small toxins and waste products trapped deep under your skin. We’ll help you sweat the small stuff!

Drastic Underestimation Of Fertilizer Plants’ Methane Emissions Revealed
The Science Times recently reported that researchers from Cornell University and Environmental Defense Fund discovered drastic underestimations regarding emissions of methane from the industrial sector. They applied the use of a Google Street View car stocked with a high-precision methane sensor. Their findings? Methane emissions from ammonia fertilizer plants were 100 times higher than the fertilizer industry’s self-reported estimate.
Co-author of the study and professor of civil and environmental engineering John Albertson said that natural gas is mostly methane, which molecule-per-molecule has a stronger global warming potential than carbon dioxide. The presence of significant leaks or emissions everywhere along the supply chain could make natural gas a more substantial contributor to climate change than previously thought.
Fast Food Could Be Inflicting Irreversible Damage To Your Brain
We all know that fast food doesn’t do our body any favors: It’s notoriously high in calories, fats and provides little nutritional value, but recent findings by Australian National University suggest that fast food can also cause irreversible dementia.
Professor Nicolas Cherbuin, who led the research published in Frontiers in Neuroendocrinology, said: “We’ve found strong evidence that people’s unhealthy eating habits and lack of exercise for sustained periods of time puts them at serious risk of developing Type 2 diabetes and significant declines in brain function, such as dementia and brain shrinkage.”
People were usually only advised to reduce their risk of brain problems like dementia once they were already aged in their 60s and it was often a case of “too little, too late.” In actuality, it is people’s diets in childhood and as young adults that are crucial.
“One of the best chances people have of avoiding preventable brain problems down the track is to eat well and exercise from a young age,” says Cherbuin.
