She initially worked in cardiac rehab and with other special disease populations including diabetes, obesity, hypertension, eating disorders and disease sufferers. Dr. Laubscher went on to open her international antiageing clinics for integrated and preventative medicine. “The alkalinity of your body informs your pH level, the balance
of which is essential to overall wellbeing. Your ideal alkaline range is 6.5 – 7.5. However, our modern lifestyle can upset the body’s healthy pH balance, with many of us being too acidic causing health issues big and small. I wanted one simple all you need supplement with highly absorbable nutrients to help the body stay alkaline.” – Dr. Simone Laubscher, PhD

THE ALKALINE WAY – By Dr. Laubsher

What is the best way to use Alkalising Greens and
Nourishing Protein? We recommend Alkalising Greens daily to keep your body in a healthy alkaline range, and Nourishing Protein whenever you need a clean source of protein, for a nutrient-rich snack, or meal replacement.

When will I feel a difference using Alkalising Greens? To optimise the full benefits and to maintain your body’s alkaline range, Alkalising Greens should be taken every day. Especially when you fisrt start, we recommend taking consecutively for 7 to 14 days and then maintain this regular intake. The whole food bio-live ingredients create a wonderful energy boost without having to add any nasty stimulants. Due to the alkalising effect of THE SUPER ELIXIRTM blend and the ability to deliver nutrition directly into the cell, the body’s natural detox capacity is accelerated. This allows not only increased nutrition
into the cell but only the removal of toxins from the cell, allowing the body to operate at optimum wellness. The powdered form assists excellent absorption.

Why shoud we supplement protein in our diet? We all need protein – we don’t store it, we have to eat it. THE SUPER ELIXIRTM Nourishing Protein is a great solution if you
cannot always find a clean, organic, antibiotic and pesticide free option. Nourishing Protein is plant based with all 9 amino acids so it has everything you need and nothing you don’

Do you possess superhero powers that can style your hair into sleek perfection in the blink of an eye? I sure don’t and I suspect you don’t either so you definitively need to know about the Luma Hair Straightening Ceramic Brush!


Luma Brush was created to solve a common problem many women face everyday—a lack of time to do their hair. Luma Brush is a revolutionary new way to straighten your hair in a fraction of the time it normally takes.

Think of it as a mash up between a flat iron and a styling brush. Instead of using a traditional flat iron that squeezes hair between two flat heating elements to straighten your hair, you simply brush it. Now gorgeous, sleek and smooth hair can be achieved in minutes with just a few strokes from your roots to your tips. If it takes you about 20 minutes to straighten your hair with a flat iron, it’ll take you about two minutes with Luma!


Designed with a wide, 3D hot ceramic surface and spring-backed, plastic heat-insulated bristles that contour to your head, Luma brush is faster, gentler and more effective on hair. There is no more need to section hair using clips, go over the same part again and again, or burn your scalp in order to get close to the roots.

Luma Brush heats up to a constant temperature of 185/365 F in 60 seconds. With Luma Brush, you can make straightening your hair the easiest part of your day.

Piret Aava, The Eyebrow Doctor!

Are your eyebrows in need of reshaping or a tint?

Piret Aava, The Eyebrow Doctor is available to rescue you

from your unruly or barely there brows!


Piret Aava

While she’s based in New York, Piret recently started keeping an office in Miami and travels all over to make your dream brows a reality. It’s not easy to book an appointment with this gem – But, it’s a definite possibility that is, when she’s not catering to her high profile celebrity clients to the likes of Cynthia Nixon, Melissa Leo, Kathleen Turner, Jamie-Lynn Sigler, Jessica Hecht, George Clooney, Justin Theroux, Joaquin Phoenix, Richard Branson, Stephen Baldwin, Vincent Piazza, Katherine McPhee, Mandy Moore, Olivia Palermo, JR Smith, Christy Turlington, Lauren Bush, Gayle King and many others by sculpting their brows to perfection and creating flawless faces for red carpet appearances, TV and major magazines. For booking, please contact Info@eyebrowdoctor.com

As the ultimate authority on eyebrows, I had the pleasure of interviewing and consulting with Piret about Eyebrow Embroidery. While this procedure, also known as semi-permanent makeup, cosmetic tattooing, pigment embroidery,micro-blading or “3-D” eyebrow embroidery is quite common in Malaysia & Singapore, it’s just not catching on here in the U.S.


As Piret pointed out, when you think of old school eyebrow tattoos, you may picture those straight lines, often grayish or some off looking shade that doesn’t compliment the person, and look like they were drawn on with a marker. Luckily, that’s NOT what they are! Eyebrow embroidery is a semi-permanent pigment that is pushed into the surface of the skin with an ultra fine fine blade to mimic the growth of your real hair or if you have some existing hair it will mimick your growth pattern and create bolder yet natural looking eyebrows. This does not require a tattoo gun, ink and there is no bleeding or downtime. In fact, it looks best when a pro like Piret does it by hand because you can hardly believe it’s not real hair!
