Over time, menopause and births,
the vagina tends to lose firmness and get older1, which implies a series of
effects on the physical and emotional state of women. However, there are
currently innovative technologies of non-invasive medicine that help rejuvenate
the female intimate area and reverse these problems.
Vaginal tissue is made of
collagen bras that are stretched during childbirth (perineal trauma) and age,
which causes loss of tone, dryness and irritation, which can lead to urinary
incontinence and can even affect sexual life2 and women’s self-esteem.
According to Mayo Clinic one of
the main causes of the reduction of muscle tone of the vagina is natural
childbirth. He estimates that more than 60% of women between 25 and 45 years of
age who have had a birth suffer from this problem.

For many people, a migraine can
be a severe nuisance that can be so daily that it is adopted as part of
everyday life; However, in Mexico this is a public health problem that can be
shocking and can cause serious economic repercussions 1.
Migraine can cause pain as a
pulse in the head, usually on one side only. It is often accompanied by nausea,
vomiting and sensitivity to light and sound. A migraine attack can last from
hours to days.
Although the causes of its
origin are unknown, there are basic triggers such as: inheritance, age, stress,
anxiety, hormones, diet, poor body posture, physical and environmental factors
and lack of sleep.
According to academics from the
Faculty of Medicine of the UNAM, the prevalence of migraine in Mexico is around

the latest INEGI count in 2015, year in that we were 119 million 938 thousand

can cause tension and muscle pain, lack of concentration, disharmonized or aged
appearance, poor posture and tread, digestive problems, poor performance and
According to the American
Association of Orthodontists of the United States, in that territory alone
there are more than 4.5 million people who use some type of oral appliance to
straighten their teeth 2.
According to Terry Pracht, DDS,
former President of that institution, poor oral alignment has its origin in
hereditary, environmental factors and bad habits such as, in the case of
children, sucking your finger or pushing your teeth with your tongue; In less
case the problems are due to accidents that compromise the mandibular function.
