2 May 2018, UAE: Under the support of the Dubai Health Authority, Nutreema Advertising together with HealthPlus Fertility Center – Dubai (the strategic partner of the event) organized the Journey to Wellness event at the Amara Spa in Park Hyatt Dubai.

Around 200 ladies – spouses of ambassadors/consul generals, press and media gathered together and graced the occasion.

Nowadays, life is hectic, full of daily tasks and deadlines, keeping in mind the amount of stress people go through daily. The journey to wellness event is dedicated to women and in acknowledgement of women’s role in the community.

The event focused on three different subjects: Wellness, beauty and health which was marked by numerous activities related to health, skin and hair care, free consultations & check-ups, proper diet tips for the coming holy month of Ramadan and discovering the secret of releasing distress. The ladies benefited from cosmetic tips, massage, facials, skin care advice which was carried out during the entire evening.

Dr. Bohaira El Geyoushi, Fertility & IVF Consultant at HealthPlus Fertility Center in Dubai conducted a lecture on Fertility in Women. Some relevant issues on women’s fertility were tackled and was followed by Q&A. She said, “In early years, fertility issues were a taboo. People didn’t have the courage to discuss it with their healthcare providers as well. Now, we see couples approaching their family doctors for advice, and not hesitant to actually visit a fertility doctor if there was a medical need. We see also women participating in lectures such as today and discussing their concerns. World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that about 50 million couples worldwide currently experience infertility. Research has consistently also shown that secondary fertility is more common than primary fertility.”

The Medical Director of Moorfields Eye Hospitals in the UAE – Dr. Ammar Safar, Consultant Vitreoretinal Surgeon and GCAA Approved Specialist Aeromedical Examiner, discussed the importance of eye health, and vision protection, including healthy nutrition and wellness, balanced diet and exercise, and followed this with a very interesting and interactive Q&A portion with the audience.
