MSM treats a large variety of health ailments including: Arthritic and joint pain, Acne, Rosacea, Psoriasis, Anti-ageing, Insect bites, Allergies, Itches or itchy skin, Sunburn, Minor burns, Constipation and Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Gum inflammation, Muscle pain, Sore back and may improve Eye sight. In powder form, this can be taken orally; between 2-8 grams daily with water or orange juice.

The MiSMo MSM difference? MiSMo stocks ONLY PURE, pharmaceutical grade MSM. Carrying both regular MSM and the more premium MSM distilled crystals, both are of the highest quality assurance – so no fillers, foreign materials or nasties are included. The difference between regular MSM and distilled MSM crystals is in the production process. The crystals are produced through a centrifuge ‘spun’ process, whereas the distilled is vapour captured through a boiling process. In terms of consumption, distilled has less inclusions than the regular MSM, although as mentioned both supplied by MiSMo are pharmaceutical grade.

MiSMo Magnesium Chloride Powder is produced from pristine sea waters and is of the highest quality. This ‘food grade’ muscle relaxant is readily absorbed into the body through foot baths, baths or as an oil. The daily recommended dosage of elemental Magnesium is approximately 400mg but research has found magnesium deficient people need more. Conditions that benefit from this product include: High blood pressure, Insomnia, Muscle Pain, Cramps, Anxiety and Depression, Restless legs, Headaches, Diabetes, Diabetic Neuropathy and Inflammation. Magnesium oil has also been shown to strengthen teeth enamel.

MiSMo Magnesium Gel Forte is a body lotion fortified with MSM. The Magnesium Gel Forte delivers minerals to aid any painful areas you may have. Our own team members have experienced their own ‘little miracles’ using this product, including the pain relief and decrease in swelling from a sprained ankle within hours of application and relief from muscle soreness after an intense exercise session. What a relief for an unseasoned cyclist to be climbing stairs by the pair after cycling 30km the day before!

So what is the final point of difference that makes MiSMo a pleasure to deal with? If you have any questions, ASK!

Permanent Laser Hair Removal Brisbane

Laser Hair Removal is a becoming a popular treatment, as the current fashion for both men and women is to have the clean look consisting of little or no body hair. Excess or unwanted hair growth is usually a result of genetics, hormones or certain medications. Recent advances in the technology have meant that the hair removal treatments are now a lot more effective and there is less risk of side effects from occurring, making it safer for consumers.

When discussing Laser Hair Removal, it is important to note that the body has 3 cycles of hair growth – Anagen (active), Catogen (transitional) and Telogen (resting). The laser energy destroys hairs in the Anagen or active phase, targeting the cells at the base of the hair follicle which are responsible for hair growth. As Laser Hair Removal targets only the hairs in the active phase, only a percentage of hairs are treated with each session. A series of treatments is required to clear an area, though less hair will return with each treatment and the regrowth will become fine, soft and sparse.

Laser hair removal treatments target melanin which is the dark pigment contained within the hair. Red hair contains a different type of melanin and consequently the treatments can be less effective for redheads.
The area must be shaved prior to treatment to allow the laser energy to be directed under the skin, and not to heat up the surface by having dark hair above the skin level. Any plucking or waxing must be stopped for several weeks before starting treatment, as the hair needs to be in the follicle for it to work.

The effectiveness of the Laser Hair Removal treatments is mostly dependant on the quality of machine used, the parameters or correct setting and proper candidate selection. An ideal candidate for Laser Hair Removal has light coloured skin and dark coloured hair. This stark contrast of colour allows the laser light to easily target the hair and pose little or no risk of harm to the skin. This is also why it’s important to avoid sun exposure and tanning when undergoing a course of permanent hair removal treatments.

It is important for the full area to be treated by the laser with each hair removal appointment so hairs are not missed. Any missed patches will require additional treatments in the future and the area may look patchy or have uneven hair growth. Hairs that do not fall out or shed within about 14 days have usually not been treated effectively. This is due to poor spacing by the operator or incorrect technique, which can often be avoided by finding a reputable laser clinic that has licensed and experienced operators.

Communication: a fundamental ingredient in a successful relationship

It’s a well-known fact that communication is a key ingredient in a successful marriage. Without effective communication, a couple is unable to discuss important issues and resolve their disagreements. This can often lead to feelings of detachment, anger or resentment in the long term. Although I refer to communication in relationships these tips are equally important in any important relationship in your life.

Communication can be tough, especially if it is with someone you have been in a relationship with for a long time. After a while, couples get comfortable with each other and, as a result, the level of communication tends to decrease. Assuming your partner already knows something or not taking the time to communicate with them can lead to a relationship breakdown over time.

Comfort should not equal less communication. There are many issues that may arise if you don’t keep yourself open and make an effort to communicate with your partner. Follow these simple tips to keep the communication lines open between you and your partner.

1. Never Assume
It’s important not to assume something unless you’ve communicated directly with your partner about it. This could be anything from a roster of household chores, to making assumptions about the way your partner thinks or feels about a particular issue. If you’re unsure, ask your partner and avoid arguments or misunderstandings.

2. Say what you mean
If you have something to say, say it. But make sure you’re clear with your communication and that you’re actually getting the right message across. There’s nothing more confusing (and frustrating) than receiving conflicting messages from your partner. In some cases, it may even help to write your thoughts and feelings on a piece of paper. By writing it down you are able to construct your thoughts in a clear and concise way and ensure you’re getting all the important bits of information across.

3. Don’t be afraid of a disagreement
If you disagree with something your partner has said or done, you should let them know in a calm and reasonable manner. Don’t avoid these conversations for fear of a disagreement. While a disagreement may be difficult to deal with in the short term, an open dialogue about such issues will do wonders for your relationship in the long run. By staying quiet about issues that are important to you, you will only become resentful and angry.

4. Communicate the good, not just the bad
Communication in relationships is not just important when there is an issue to address. If you have something good to say about your partner, say it loud and often. By communicating feelings of love and appreciation with your partner you will nurture the love and trust in your relationship.

5. Make time to communicate
With work and kids and extra curriculum activities it’s easy to see how some couples can’t find the time to communicate with each other. It’s very important you set aside some time on a regular basis to reconnect and communicate with your partner. This may be every day or simply on a weekly basis. Make sure you shut off all electronics and remove yourself from distractions to really focus on what each other has to say.

AusPsychology offers professional counselling services to people having communication difficulties. Their experienced counsellors can help you improve your communication skills and work towards better relationships with your partner or significant others.

Big Bang Education Brings Hands-on Science workshops to Brisbane Schools

Do your children think science is too hard or think it is really boring? Have you observed that they like putting things together or taking things apart? Do they have a lot of questions? Do they like to investigate and look for answers? If one of your answer is “Yes,” then Big Bang Education is just what your child needs! Big Bang Education provides Brisbane science school workshops, OSHC and vacation care programs as well as high energy and entertaining science themed parties.

Big Bang Education science parties will be sure to excite, entertain and also educate everyone involved. From making slime, blowing giant bubbles and eating ice cream made right in front of you using liquid nitrogen, our science parties will create a memorable experience for years to come. All children attending also receive a science party bag with more experiments so fun can continue at home.

Our science school workshops are guaranteed to be fun and educational. All school programs have been specially designed to be run in parallel with the current Australian science curriculum. It is also organized in a way to help teachers achieve necessary results in understanding science. We know how busy teachers are, so a Big Bang Education science program will save you time and effort, and you know that you are getting a program not fits exactly into the curriculum.

There are different programs for each year level, namely, Foundation/Prep, Year 1, Year 2, Year 3, Year 4 and Year Six. Each of the programs includes hands-on activities so that each child can actively participate and personally experience the science behind each activity. There are a maximum of 30 children per session. Each workshop has entertaining activities and is fully-packed with entertaining demonstrations and fun activities. Most of the activities are designed to be individually performed and then the children will share their new knowledge with the whole class.

Here are more details of each year level’s program:

* Foundation/Prep
Basically, the prep program focuses on hands-on workshop where your child investigates movement. The questions how living things move and how their environment plays an important role to their movement can be answered. The program has 60-minute session with follow-up worksheets that should be emailed to the booking teacher.

* Year 1
For students who are enrolled in the Year 1 program, they experience first-hand the exciting science behind sound and light. They are introduced to the basic facts about light and sound including the senses we are using to detect them. They are shown how to manipulate the various characteristics of a sound like pitch and volume. Lastly, they are taught what are the different sources of sound and light around us.

For its hands-on workshop, students are exposed on the different loudness and pitch of various instruments and have experimented with making sounds by using common objects. They also get to know the colours making up sunlight. After the workshop, they make their own UV light detector.

* Year 2
The Year 2 program focuses on how an object’s motion and shape are affected by push and/or pull. This program is very fun while the children explore the different forces that cause push and pull and how these forces causes an object’s shape to change or affect its movements.

In its hands-on workshop, students will learn how can objects float or sink by different forces affecting the objects that are placed in water. Students also investigate how different toys from various cultures move by pushing and pulling. And the students build parachutes to conduct a class experiment in the most important of all pulling forces, gravity.

* Year 3
The Year 3 program fits into both physical and chemical sciences. In this program, students learn the three different states of matter— solid, liquid and gas. They also get to see on how things can change from one state of matter to another. Students start off watching a science show that showcases some of the dramatic and exciting changes of state using liquid nitrogen.

In the hands-on workshop, students learn how heat is produced and how cooling and heating can cause an object to change its state. They are also taught how to use thermometers in order to measure temperature.

* Year 4
For the Year 4 program, students are entertained by the exciting science behind contact forces and non-contact forces. Contact forces include push and pull and friction. Non-contract forces are magnetism and gravity.

The students will be excited to see and learn how forces can affect the movement of objects during the hands-on workshop. They witness the effects of friction on various surfaces and the forces behind the attraction and repulsion of magnets.

*Year 5
For students under Year 5 program, they get to experience an investigation of the properties of light. During its hands-on workshop, students can get a better visual understanding of how light is absorbed by different material and how it is reflected or refracted. Mirrors are used to experiment on directing beams of light. They also get to see different optical illusions.

*Year 6
The Year 6 program is designed to help the students learn more about electricity, with a specific focus on renewable energies such as solar and wind. The workshop is a self-learning investigation of how electrical circuits work and how to create the different kinds of electrical circuit. The workshop includes learning of using light bulbs and switches and of different ways on how to generate electricity.

“Offers Over” – why not just cut to the chase?

If you’ve browsed realestate.com.au recently, you will have seen lots of properties listed as “offers over”. You might be wondering why we do this rather than just applying a fixed price.

Why we do it?
Ultimately “offers over” exposes more people to your property online, if used the right way —let’s not forget that some 90% of our buyer enquiry comes through these channels.

For buyers, realesate.com.au has set price bands when searching (ie: $400k to $450k and $450-$500k). Generally, we recommend using ‘offers over’ when you’re on the cusp of a search band.

For example, if you are aiming for a price of $460k for your home. We would list it as ‘offers over $450k’ on realesate.com.au – your property will display for buyers browsing the $400-$450k price range as well as those browsing $450-$500k.

This exposes your property to more people and gets more people to your open (people who may not have considered your property before). Even if the price is slightly out of their price range – they showed up! It’s your agent’s job from there!

We recently listed a duplex in Fitzgibbon as “offers over $300k”, a move designed to encourage a larger subset of buyers to visit the property. The home sold for $315k—an impressive figure given that the highest previous sale for a similar home in the area was $290k!

Misuse of ‘offers over’…
In my experience many agents use ‘offers over’ to avoid the uncomfortable price discussion with their owners. It’s a way for them to list the house at what they (the agent) think it’s worth without agreeing on a clear price expectation with the owner.

Can you make an offer under on an ‘offers over’ property?

Our agents will always have a firm price that the owner is expecting. After all, the first question at the open is ‘how much’?

Buyers should have the capacity to buy at or above the price indicator. Although they can open negotiations with a lower price, almost always the property will sell at or above the indicator.

When we don’t use it…
It’s not effective if your price expectation is not in line with the market.

It’s also not as effective if your ‘offers over’ price sits in the middle of a search band. A property listed as “offers over $420k” will only display for buyers searching $400k-450k”. Of course there may be some exceptions here, but this is a common mistake many agents make!

And last but not least, ‘offers over’ pricing is also useful for auctions or when agents are a little unsure on the market value (ie: for a unique property).

So if we recommend “offers over” on your next houses for sale Aspley rest assured and take it in your stride!
