The Honeymoon Spa

With June being the biggest wedding month of the year, we wanted to give you some suggestions for your up coming “Nuptials”.

Shrouded with mystery and veiled in intrigue.
Just for Newlyweds: The Four Seasons Resort Bali at Sayan’s Cendana (Spa Villa) set on the banks of the sacred Ayung River.
The most Romantic: The hotel’s Tugu Bali spa has 100 year-old antique massage beds for two that are used in the outdoor pavilion.
Sexiest Treatment: Begawan Giri’s Source spa. “Flower Bath”
Great Adventure: Noted for its tempting treks, East Bali (now a public bathing area). The Amankila hotel and spa keeps a thatched-roof bale high in the mountains overlooking stands of banana trees, rice fields, and in the distance, the sea. After hiking to the remote hut, indulge in a picnic lunch and a massage for two.

Known for its breezy South Pacific romance, fiery volcanoes, fragrant flowers, and ukulele nights.
Just for Newlyweds: The Ritz-Carlton, Kapalua on Maui celebrate your union with the Hawaiian Healing Experience.
The most Romantic: The newly renovated Hotel Hana-Maui is a dream come true for Newlywed couples.
Sexiest Treatment: With its private plunge pool, butler service, and tropical fishpond, the luxurious two-steam-shower bungalow at Mauna Lani (on the Big Island) will take you over the top.
Great Adventure: Turtle Bay Resort is natural, untamed, and wild. Ride horses at sunset, spot humpback whales (December to April), and watch monster waves and surfers from your lanai. If you are a surfer, you will be glad to know that the spa’s Pipeline Sports Massage preps muscles for those famous North Shore waves.

French Polynesia: The white sand beaches are postcard perfect!
Just for Newlyweds: The sumptuous Bungalows at the Bora Bora Nui Resort & Spa make it hard to leave your room.
Best New Habit: Bathing together! The Helene Spa at the Moorea Beachcomber Inter-Continental has a “rain shower”, “river bath”, and fresh flower tub for two.
The most Romantic: At the Sheraton Moorea Lagoon Resort’s Mandara Spa, have a moonlight massage in your bungalow or on the ocean terrace deck while being serenaded by the water lapping against the shore.
Sexiest Treatment: Taha’a is known as the “vanilla island”, so it’s no surprise that many of the treatments at the new Pearl Beach Spa and Resort have a highly sensual fragrance. The four-hand vanilla-scented massage is a must, but the body wrap with coconut oil and banana leaves is a close second.
Great Adventure: Located in the less-trampled Tuamotus Islands (an hour flight from Tahiti), Le Maitai Dream Fakarava grants a sandy stretch of the South Pacific all to the two of you. As a preserve, this new resort is a remote and unspoiled world teeming with rare birds, spectacular marine life, and virtually undiscovered diving spots.

Sunlight May Prevent Cancer
The medical benefits of red wine

Sunshine may lower the risk of breast and colon cancer, among other forms of the disease, according to a number of recent studies. The key is vitamin D, which is produced naturally in the body through exposure to ultraviolet-B (UVB) radiation. Actually a hormone, it helps the body absorb calcium, building strong bones and boosting the immune system in the process. All it takes to get the necessary dose of D is 10 to 15 minutes of sunlight on the face and arms, sans sunscreen, several times a week-with the exact amount of time varying according to factors like age, geography, and skin tone.

If you are worried about the effects of sunlight on the skin, try eating more foods that contain lutein, an antioxidant found in leafy green vegetables like spinach and kale. According to a new study from Harvard Medical School, the nutrient, which has already been shown to promote eye health, may also prevent UVB-induced skin cancer.

Good News about Your Bones

Low bone mass is common among postmenopausal women. There is good news for women who work out-recent findings reinforce the positive link between weight-bearing exercise and osteoporosis prevention. The study, conducted by the University of Arizona Departments of Physiology and Nutritional Sciences, shows that strength training, when done at least three times a week for one year, increases both bone density and bone mass post-menopause.

Natural Sugar
The medical benefits of red wine

When it comes to sugar and sugar substitutes, go natural for the sake of your health.
Refined sugars undergo 32 processes, including bleaching, organically grown sugar is minimally processed and much healthier for you and the environment. Artificial sweeteners such as saccharin and aspartame are chemicals, and although approved by the FDA, the short or long term health effects of consumption is not fully understood.

Now there is an organic safe and delicious substitute containing zero calories called “Stevia”. This is derived from a perennial shrub of the aster family. Although it is 300 times sweeter than sugar, this herb can be used safely by diabetics. Stevia contains magnesium, niacin, potassium, and vitamin C, and a recent research indicates that it reduces cavities by slowing growth of dental plaque.
