    The mind-skin connection with Dr Kierra Barr of Resilient Health Institute

    The mind-skin connection with Dr Kierra Barr of Resilient Health Institute

    The mind and skin are intimately entangled. If you've ever blushed from embarrassment, you know that your skin can reflect what you're feeling inside. It makes sense, then, that emotional trouble might show up as skin trouble. Although cause and effect can be difficult to pin down, considerable data suggest that at least in some people, stress and other psychological factors can activate or worsen certain skin conditions. The bond between skin and mind has deep roots, going back at least as far as skin-to-skin contact between newborn and mother.

    From topical outbreaks like cold sores to the ever-so-common condition of adult acne, your mind is likely a major culprit behind them. The skin is the most noticeable part of our body that could be impacted by psychological factors. Is this a new phenomenon? Or are we just beginning to understand the very real effects stress has on our minds and bodies?

    In this week's podcast episode, Marni will be speaking with Dr Kiera Barr.

    Dr. Barr is a prominent leader in women’s medicine – creating a bridge between hormones, skin and mind-body medicine to optimise women’s mid-life experience. She is an international speaker, best selling author, clinical educator, and considered a leading authority on women’s health. Keira passionately bridges the gap between the latest evidence-based research and an integrative approach to health. She turns conventional methodologies on their heads, blending science with the soul to bring an innovative and compassionate approach to health and skincare.

    Join us in this amazing episode as we learn more about the mind-skin connection from the expert.

    Skin bleaching with Dr Tess Mauricio

    Skin bleaching with Dr Tess Mauricio

    The idea of altering skin tone has been around since ancient times. Arguably, it was during the height of colonialism and the rise of “scientific racism” (the pseudoscientific idea that empirical evidence supports notions of racial superiority and inferiority) from the 18th to the 19th century that white skin became even more desired.

    Today, over a century after the zenith of scientific racism, the aesthetic standard of “lighter is better” has persisted, particularly in the “global south.” In some ways, challenging the practice of skin-lightening on the basis of skin damage is a lost cause as users will so often believe that the aimed-for benefits will outweigh the dangers.

    Skin whitening has been marketed as part of a fight against ageing, which means it has also come to be seen as a legitimate way to take care of one’s skin. Women (and men) are told over and over that getting and keeping glowing skin at all ages is a standard requirement for beauty.

    In this week's podcast episode, Marni spoke with Dr Tess Mauricio about skin whitening and skin bleaching.

    Dr Tess Mauricio is a Board Certified Dermatologist, fellow of the American Academy of Dermatology. She is the founder of M Beauty by Dr Tess and the youngest woman to hold the position of President of The San Diego Society for Dermatologic Surgery. Dr Tess is an internationally recognised cosmetic surgeon, author, renowned speaker, teacher, and a sought after media personality. She is a favourite medical expert on TV with regular network appearances on CBS’ The Doctors, The Talk, The Real, Dr Phil, The Rachael Ray Show, Fox News, and The Dr Oz Show.

    Join us in this amazing episode as we learn about the misconception, risks and danger of skin bleaching.

    Breast Cancer Awareness Month with Dr Eva Nagy

    Breast Cancer Awareness Month with Dr Eva Nagy

    As Breast Cancer Awareness Month begins this week, we’ll start seeing pink awareness efforts everywhere. Pink products will line the shelves at stores, awareness and fundraising ads will showcase celebrities wearing pink ribbons, some even articulating a specific person or family member affected by breast cancer for whom they’re dedicating their efforts.

    Raising awareness is a great thing.  Breast cancer is a public health concern that’s a year-round issue, but it’s good to draw more attention to the issue from time to time. Awareness of disease begins with education. Breast cancer is no different. It’s important to understand what it is so you know what to do if you are or your loved one is diagnosed.
    While most people are aware that breast cancer exists, there’s still much that can be done to educate people about it.
    In this week's podcast episode, Marni will be speaking with Dr Eva Nagy.
    Dr Eva Nagy is the Consultant Breast Surgeon at Sydney Oncoplastic Surgery. Upon completing her training and becoming a Fellow of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons, Eva embarked on sub-specialty training in Breast Surgery. These stints saw her receive comprehensive instruction in advanced surgical techniques relevant to breast cancer at the Poche Centre in North Sydney, and at the Nottingham Breast Institute, a class-leading breast cancer treatment centre in the United Kingdom.
    While Eva offers the full suite of surgical options for breast cancer patients, her professional interests include the use of breast-conserving surgery (lumpectomy) for patients where mastectomies are not a necessity and the use of plastic techniques to help restore appearances after cancer surgery. She is continually mindful of patients' emotional well-being and quality of life when discussing treatment plans, and always ensures that patient health is never compromised. Additionally, through working alongside field-leading oncoplastic specialists during her fellowship training, Eva gained significant expertise in reconstructive techniques for patients with complex situations or who require corrective surgical treatment for prior breast surgery.

    Her ongoing research in breast cancer has provided her with opportunities to present her findings in conferences such as the San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium, and the Association of Breast Surgery Conference in Glasgow.  Her current research explores the feasibility of safely de-escalating treatment protocols for cancer patients.
    Join us as Dr Eva shares the biggest misconception, treatments and innovation for breast cancer.

    Functional medicine practitioners guide to skin conditions with Rebecca Hughes of Melbourne Functional Medicine

    Functional medicine practitioners guide to skin conditions with Rebecca Hughes of Melbourne Functional Medicine

    Functional medicine takes a different perspective on skin diseases by not viewing it as a “disease” in and of itself. Rather, many skin conditions are considered an external symptom of an internal problem - and solved at the root cause. 

    Do you find it hard to live in the skin that is manifested with rashes, itchiness, redness, bleb or infection? Living with chronic skin conditions can be hard affecting people's social, professional, and personal life. Skin is the largest and most visible part of our body and skin conditions like a rash, irritation, skin infection, weird-looking bumps, blemishes, and inflammation can drive anyone crazy, in the most unpleasant ways. There are many conventional treatments available in the market in the form of topical cream, tablets tonics, lotions, ointments, antibiotics, and antifungal agents, offering only temporary relief from the condition, and posing greater side effects. That’s why most of the people look for integrative therapies like functional medicine that can treat chronic skin conditions from the inside out. 

    How does functional medicine view skin conditions? 

    That's what we will find out in this week's episode with Rebecca Hughes of Melbourne Functional Medicine. 

    Rebecca is a leading skin health practitioner at Melbourne Functional Medicine. As a functional medicine trained naturopath, she has a passion for treating skin conditions such as eczema, acne, psoriasis, lupus, cold sores, impetigo, molluscum and warts. As recognition of her outstanding contribution to her field, Rebecca recently won the 2020 BIMA award for Clinical Excellence. 

    Since graduating in 2003, Rebecca has combined clinical practice with pursuits in a range of roles within the natural medicine field such as lecturing in bachelor degree nutrition and naturopathy courses, regulating complementary medicines at the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA), and contributing to national reference text on Herbs and Natural Supplements. 

    Join us in this episode as we learn about the myths and misconception of treating skin conditions.

    Naturopathy and the Skin with Emily Bathgate of The Purist Collection

    Naturopathy and the Skin with Emily Bathgate of The Purist Collection

    Wouldn’t it be great if we could design a single piece of clothing that was protective, comfortable, stretchable as well as stain-resistant, water-resistant and fade-resistant? One that never needs ironing and could self-repair from any rips, cuts or burns? Well, technically, you already have such a “suit” and it will last you your entire life if you care for it well, and that is, your skin. 

    We’re used to hearing about our skin in connection with beauty, rather than health. The Skin, however, is a remarkably complex organ (it is the largest organ of the body), which reflects our total health. Treatment for common skin conditions such as acne, psoriasis, eczema and rosacea, therefore, often include a closer look at what’s going inside the body. 

    What is naturopathy and why is it poised for growth in the decade to come? 

    By definition, Naturopathy—also called naturopathic medicine—is a medical system that has evolved from a combination of traditional practices and health care approaches. People visit naturopathic practitioners for various health-related purposes, including primary care, overall well-being, and treatment of illnesses. 

    But how does it affect your skin health? That's what we're going to find out in this week's episode with Emily Bathgate. 

    Emily is a qualified naturopath, self-confidence ambassador and former acne sufferer, specialising in natural health solutions and clean beauty alternatives. After her mum fell ill with cancer that was found to be genetic, Emily started to realise that she needed to make some drastic changes so that she could reclaim control of her health, her future and her vitality, and become the radiant woman she was destined to be… all whilst inspiring other women to do the same! 

    Almost a decade later, Emily works with clients in the areas of skin health, digestive disharmony, hormonal imbalances, anxiety and low self-esteem. Ultimately, Emily’s mission is to empower women suffering from acne and hormonal issues to get to the root cause of their skin issues, enabling and inspiring them to make healthier lifestyle choices, so that they too can heal their bodies and skin naturally, and become the most confident, happy, healthy and radiant versions of themselves.

    Fat grafting; what is it and who is it for? With Dr. Simone Matousek

    Fat grafting; what is it and who is it for? With Dr. Simone Matousek

    Are you considering plastic surgery but not sure where to start? Want a new look but can’t decide which procedure is best for you?

    When you think of plastic surgery do synthetic implants and injectables come to mind? Have you heard of fat grafting? With advances constantly being made in surgical and minimally invasive techniques and technology, many procedures are becoming much more accessible — not to mention safer and with significantly shorter recovery times. 

    Plastic surgery is widespread and common, but that still doesn’t mean choosing to undergo a procedure is as simple as showing up in your surgeon’s office on the day of the surgery. There are many dos and don’ts to consider throughout the entire process, and it’s important to do your homework beforehand. 

    In this week's podcast episode, Marni will be speaking with one of Australia's leading plastic surgeon, Dr Simone Matousek. 

    Dr Simone Matousek is a fully qualified Plastic, Reconstructive and Cosmetic Surgeon. She is one of a few plastic surgeons with a PhD degree and was one of the first plastic surgeons in Australia to perform the technique of large volume fat grafting to the breast for reconstruction and cosmetic breast augmentation. She travelled internationally to gain experience prior to this procedure is performed in Australia and has since developed her own effective fat grafting technique. 

    Her practice philosophy is to leave patients looking refreshed and rejuvenated, not radically different. The aim of plastic surgery treatments is to provide subtle enhancement of a person’s features or to restore anatomy that has changed due to the processes of ageing or disease. 

    Join us in this episode and learn the ins and outs of plastic surgery from the expert!
