懷孕是女士一個充滿挑戰及興奮的經驗,身體經重大荷爾蒙改變,亦根據身體健康的不同,會經歷噁心、水腫、妊娠紋、便秘、痔瘡、靜脈曲張、抽筋之類的問題, 如果能注意飲食得宜,避免服用或接觸化學藥物及儀器,多休息,不要提舉重的東西,心情保持輕鬆,多聽古典音樂,特別是巴哈及莫札特的作品,對小朋友的腦發展、領悟力、靈性都十分有幫助。如果照顧自己得宜,做適量運動,身體疲倦或腰背痛時去接受專業按摩及治療,很多婦女都會感到這是人生一段極開懷歡暢的日子,而用香氛治療來照顧自己身心的需要,更是處理我們身體、情緒、靈性需要的絕佳方法。 (法國香氛醫生 Dr.Penoel 建議,只選擇採用高品質有機或野生的菁華油,才能達到所述功效)

 

頭三個月皮膚護理 一些香氛師建議不用任何菁華油在身體 上,只用底油來護理肌膚,特別小心有些菁華油是高度刺激皮膚,有催經或調理婦科作用的,都應該小心,請參照下面禁忌【注意份量要比平時減半】一欄。面部及身體肌膚都需要額外照料,可以每天早晚全身搽上全天然的滋養性植物油,以補充皮膚的滋養和水份。 抗妊娠紋配方:玫瑰果油 30%、牛油果油 20%、金盞花油 20%、可可巴油或甜杏仁 油 30%或只用玫瑰果油,特別注意要多搽在腹部及大腿這些容易引致妊娠紋的部位。若要加菁華油可選擇:(每 50ml 底油加入 最多 8 滴菁華油,每次可選三種菁華油)橙葉,檀香木,橙花,檸檬,蜜柑

四至六個月的皮膚護理 橙花,蜜柑,佛手柑,薰衣草,乳香,西 柚,橙葉,檀香木

香氛治療 獻給孕婦 – 懷孕前準備

撰者:徐儀鳳
30 年經驗法國美容學校校長 及國際認証香氛治療導師

 

一些研究指出,受孕時及懷孕期輕鬆暢快的心情對小寶寶的身心發展都有一個深遠的影嚮。反之,亦可能是對小寶寶情緒健康及身體健康有負面影嚮的其中因素。

夫婦二人都儘量進食健康有益或有機的食物,把自已圍繞在優美的環境中——音樂、文學、藝術等等,儘量縱容我們感官世界,例如經常地接受專業香氛按摩、在家中常浸香氛浴(溫水內放入總共 5-10 滴菁華油)、自己調較香氛油全身塗抹(每 10ml 底油內加入總共 5 滴菁華油)、家居及工作地點都可常常燃點香氛皿(水內放入總共 5-10 滴菁華油)。呵護自己,令自己心情輕鬆,減少壓力。這些都會令受孕更容易。

減壓配方 甘松香、檸檬馬鞭草、蜜柑葉、橙花、佛手柑、丹參、橙葉、蜜柑、薰衣草(每次選擇三種)
調理經期 香蜂草(令經期較準確)、天竺葵、玫瑰、德國甘菊
增進魅力 夷蘭、茉莉、玫瑰、香橙、橙花
鬆弛愉快 橙花、香橙、橙葉、丹參、佛手柑、玫瑰、蜜柑葉
容易入睡 薰衣草、羅馬甘菊、橙花、橙葉、蜜柑、甘松香、歐白芷

Cryolife lab protocol

Cryolife’s Laboratory’s Operation Protocol during COVID-19

Cryolife’s Laboratory’s Operation Protocol during COVID-19

In reply to commonly asked questions from our clients, we are pleased to share the following Q&A:

 

1. If a laboratory staff is infected by COVID-19, will the virus be transmitted to the cord blood during processing? 

Technically yes there would be a possible transmission if a Lab staff is being infected with heavy load COVID-19 virus during sample processing. In view of this risk, all our lab and office staff need to conduct self-Rapid Antigen Test every morning before they return to work. All recorded negative results must be sent to HR for official record before they reach office/lab. As additional precautions, all returned Cord Blood Sample’s packaging will be thoroughly disinfected at the receiving and sample registration bay before proceeding to the lab for sample processing.

During the sample processing period, the whole practice will be done in biosafety cabinet (protecting the sample) in a close system processing bag set.  All lab staff will wear protective measures (PPE) during the whole sample processing period.  With all these proactive precautionary and preventative measures, the chances of having our client’s cord blood sample being infected during sample processing are extremely slim.

 

2. If the cord blood is not infected but the surface of the blood bag is infected, will the entire tank be infected by COVID-19? 

All returned Cord Blood’s packing from hospital will be thoroughly disinfected at the receiving and sample registration bay to ensure safe processing in biosafety cabinet thereafter. Additionally, all processed Cord Blood storage bags are being overwrapped before they are finally being placed inside the storage tanks for long term cryopreservation. If in the unfortunate event that the storage bag of the processed Cord Blood is contaminated with COVID-19, the overwrapping of storage bags plus the vapor nitrogen will specifically protects frozen cord blood samples from any infections or bacteria. Additionally, at -190C, COVID-19 or any other virus, cannot infect the contents of the tank.

 

3. What are Cryolife staff’s current preventative measures for COVID-19?

Besides daily disinfecting and sanitizing our office and lab facilities, all our staff will need to perform Self-Rapid Antigen Test daily prior to returning to office with negative results. Additionally, we update our Emergency Plan and Lab Operation Protocols accordingly base on Hong Kong’s government latest guideline on preventative and follow up protocols for COVID-19.

 

4. Can COVID-19 be passed to a patient in a cord blood transplant? 1

There are no known reports of coronavirus transmission in a transplant. In fact, there has never been a documented case in which any kind of respiratory virus has been transmitted to a patient by implantation, transplantation, infusion or other transfer of cells or tissues.
