The founder of the site BeautyHack.ru Margarita Lieva went to the innovative Prevent Age resort “First Line. Health Care Resort”to get in shape and cope with chronic fatigue. She also found out everything about the unique mission of the resort and tested on herself a new program "Biohacking", which reveals all the secrets of the body and its individual characteristics to improve well-being, appearance and anti-age strategy programming.
I am a mother of three small children, so I am constantly on the move and I can count my free minutes on my fingers. In addition, I work hard and try to find time for self-development and other interesting projects. And recently I began to notice that the experiences associated with motherhood and an active lifestyle, as well as frequent lack of sleep deplete my body - lately, no matter what I did, I felt only one desire - to rest. I think now all women and mothers will understand me! It was necessary to change something!
Choosing between relaxing SPA treatments, I turned my attention to the beautiful views of the First Line. Health Care Resort”and its unusual approach to the complete recovery of the body - combining high-class medicine and recreation, the resort offers a fundamentally new philosophy of health improvement both externally and at the cellular level.
First of all, I was attracted by the location of the resort - a real pine forest, the coast of the Gulf of Finland, clean air - I think no one will refuse to spend several days in such a place. But after I carefully studied the mission of the resort and its programs, it became interesting for me to try out such a unique approach to health improvement on myself. Moreover, my body has long made it clear that it needs a complete reboot and restoration of strength. And every woman dreams of staying young and beautiful as long as possible (5 products that prolong youth, look here).
I chose the "Biohacking" program - a system for monitoring health, prolonging life and improving its quality. The program is designed specifically for residents of megalopolises who want to fully control their health, improve the quality of life, transform outwardly (for example, lose weight) and get an individual strategy with which you can always stay in great shape.
The Biohacking program includes a complex of daily massages, pleasant physical activity in the form of Pilates and hiking, a daily visit to the SPA-salon, as well as a full check-up diagnosis and proper nutrition 3 times a day.
Also, during the program, a special genetic passport is drawn up - molecular genetic testing, according to the results of which you can find out what nature has awarded you, what to pay attention to, what to improve and what weaknesses your body has.
Before I had time to step over the threshold of the resort, I was sent to donate blood from a vein. The analysis, maybe not the most pleasant, but very important, because for a high-quality diagnosis of the body, its needs and the appointment of the necessary complex of health procedures, it is important for specialists to know what vitamins and microelements I lack. The doctors also checked the state of my hormonal levels - an important aspect in the proper functioning of the body. As soon as the tests were ready, the curator and I discussed all the results and made an action plan for the days that I planned to spend at the resort.
I learned that my constant feeling of fatigue was mainly due to the lack of vitamin D, magnesium and iron in the body (how to understand that you have chronic fatigue, the psychotherapist tells here). Also, the doctor told me about my metabolism and acid-base balance, the state of immunity and the work of enzyme systems. I was amazed at his attentiveness and professionalism. Instead of general superficial recommendations that we used to receive from doctors, the doctor told me everything about my body!
It was interesting to know the ratio of fat to muscle mass. I also realized how stress negatively affects the work of our body, and that even negative emotions can trigger destructive processes in it. And it was also a discovery for me that the less you sleep, the more you gain weight - I think all women need to take note of this! The fact is that melatonin, a sleep hormone, regulates chronobiological processes in our body, which are also responsible for the activity of the endocrine system. Just one week of sleep deprivation negatively affects the activity of more than 700 genes, and sleep deficit, that is, less than 7-8 hours a day, is accompanied by a decrease in melatonin production. What threatens the deficiency of this hormone in the body? The development of oxidative stress, which changes genes and triggers the aging process.
So, after carrying out all the necessary analyzes and studying them in detail, my unique program for improving the body began. Droppers with ozone and other useful ingredients, face and body massage, wraps with bandages to improve lymph flow and lifting effect, whirlpool baths, breathing exercises, Scandinavian wrestling and hammam - these are just some of the procedures that the specialist prescribed for me. In my free time, I walked a lot along the shores of the Gulf of Finland, breathed incredibly fresh air and, of course, slept.
Convenient infrastructure of the resort “First Line. Health Care Resort”with numerous recreation areas, complexes of simulators and playgrounds for activities, beautiful walking paths, as well as pleasant room decoration: a spacious room, soft light combinations and natural materials. And, of course, the kitchen won me over.
I didn’t even think that separate diet food could be so tasty - my favorite dishes were pumpkin soup and boiled tongue, cooked according to special author's recipes.
Leaving, I received a health passport with a strategy for a healthy lifestyle, personalized based on my indicators, information about my health, as well as important recommendations that we usually do not pay attention to: once a year to undergo a complete examination of the whole body, drink more clean water, take vitamin complexes and, most importantly, go to bed two hours before midnight.
After visiting the resort “First Line. Health Care Resort”I understood the simple truth that you need to take care of your body constantly. The Biohacking program opened my eyes to the fact that this is not a one-time procedure, but a way of life. But this does not frighten at all, because once you have tried this approach, you can no longer stop!
