What’s hot in summer wellness
We have compiled a list of health and wellness services that may hit the spot this summer.
A woman’s monthly periods permanently stop at menopause, usually measured from when she has missed her period for twelve consecutive months. Aging naturally depletes a woman’s ovarian egg cells, therefore menopause marks the permanent end of fertility. Hormone tests alone cannot tell when you are in menopause.
Thyroid disorders range from a small, harmless enlarged gland (goiter) to cancer, although cancer is quite rare. The most common disorders involve abnormal production of thyroid hormones or hyperthyroidism. Insufficient hormone production is hypothyroidism.

After your regular workout in the gym, park, or run why not consider a sauna. The hottest thing in wellness right now is the Far-Infrared Sauna in our sister medical spa and wellness center. So many treatments work even better when you follow them with a Sauna session. What else is hot in wellness?
One of the best bundles is a Detox Drip or Detox Kit plus a Sauna session. Detoxifying—ridding your body of harmful toxins and heavy metals—will improve your digestive system function and promote increased nutrient absorption, tune up your lifestyle patterns, reduce your antigenic load, and facilitate the better assessment of complex GI dysfunctions.
Another hot treatment is Venus Freeze. I know, it sounds like a cold treatment, but it relies on heating the collagen fibers by using pulsed magnetic fields and radiofrequency to consistently and uniformly heat the skin from the inside out, without the threat of laser burns. The result is skin tightening, wrinkle reduction, and cellulite reduction. Because the heat stimulates a healing response, new collagen forms and your skin produces new elastin fibers.
Aesthetic treatments like the CO2 laser that promote collagen regeneration. This is something that we need in your toolbox!
Vedas and Woodlands Functional Family Medicine are minutes from I-45 (Houston’s North Freeway) in The Woodlands. We look forward to seeing you soon!
