The Latest & Greatest

  • How to Transition your Compression Stockings from Winter to Spring

    Driving to work this morning with sunglasses on and windows down, I couldn’t help but be pleasantly reminded of spring’s arrival. Changing blooms, longer days and warmer weather - all welcomed changes to winter’s short days, cold nights & layers.

    Winter makes wearing compression easy. Under pants, they offer a spare layer of warmth. Paired with dresses they do double duty as fashion-accessory & cold protection. No one even thinks to ask why you’re wearing tights – because duh it’s winter right?

    This changes as hemlines rise come spring. Compression thigh highs or pantyhose that looked so chic with dresses begin to raise eyebrows when paired with shorts. And how on earth are you supposed to handle full-length support with open toed shoes or sandals? Definitely falls into the fashion faux pas danger zone.

    I’m not a professional fashion blogger, but I have worn compression for years. During the course of this I’ve discovered a few tricks for surviving spring while wearing compression. Here’s my top spring stocking (and sock) survival tips:

    SEEK SHEERS

    I love opaque compression stockings for winter, but suggest moving them to the back of your dresser drawer come summer. Instead opt for Sheer styles that offer a transparent peek of your actual skin tone beneath their yarns. In addition to offering a more seasonally-appropriate match to your changing wardrobe, I find the lighter yarns used to knit sheers offer a bit more breathable – another plus with warming weather.

    Opt for a solid sheer nude to achieve a “bare leg” look (I love this version if going for the no-stocking at all look) or select one with pattern or light color for an interesting pop of texture or color. My favorite is to combine both trends – nude + texture – in something like Rejuva’s Sheer Dot Buff. Paired with white pants for pure spring perfection.

    EMBRACE EARTH TONES

    For many, spring means more time outside. As a Californian more time outside means more time by the caramel-colored sand and sparkling blue ocean water. What better wardrobe & compression inspiration than that? If nude or sheers aren’t an option, consider drawing upon nature for your sock inspiration.

    In addition to calling to mind images of sand, mountainside, and dirt trails, tan & khaki compression socks complement light-color pants beautifully. Pair with denim, white, khaki or army green pants plus brown shoes for instant cappuccino-inspired cohesion. I love wearing our Herringbone Sand compression socks with white denim and brown leather ankle booties on spring nights, but you can also match them with denim and a fun pop of color in the shoe for a more youthful, playful energy.

    Compression-socks-for-spring

    If earthy browns aren’t your beat, turn to the sea for inspiration. Marine blues are an easy spring alternative to winter blacks. Sport them with dress shoes & slacks for work, or swap for Sperry’s and casual khakis on the weekends.

    FREE YOUR FEET

    When I first began wearing compression, the stocking + sandal combination was my biggest fear and challenge. At the time of my DVT diagnosis, I was literally living 1 house from the sand at the beach. Weekends and evenings were always spent outside and I struggled to find a way to enjoy my usual footwear without feeling frumpy.

    My first discovery for overcoming this was open-toed, sheer options. Before creating Rejuva, I lived in nude beige thigh highs like these. To avoid getting too hot while still looking boho beach chic, I’d pair them with a long maxi dress and sandals. This is still one of my favorite tips for spring/summer compression.

    Despite this discovery, I still found myself craving added freedom for my feet. In the office, Stacy (our VP of Ops & a fellow compression wearer), were secretly cutting off the feet of pantyhose to make makeshift leggings. The only bummer was this wasn’t a perfect solution – you couldn’t wear them with a shirt because your bum was still exposed and they often began rolling up from the feet. So I set out to make the first ever, fully opaque graduated compression legging. It took months just to get their special 4-inch wide waistband designed and completed, but the result was worth it. Now these are the new #1 compression item in my spring/summer (and year-round) wardrobe.

    Summer-Compression-Style

    Pair the black with a tee & floppy hat or the indigo with a long cardigan and tank. Either way, your feet will be fully free to frolic in sandals, feel the sand, and experience all spring & summer has to offer.

    Meet DVT Survivor, Stacy

    blood-clot-age

    I have come to know this phrase all too well. As if suffering a blood clot at the mere age of 20 wasn’t enough to make me feel like a walking dinosaur, family, friends, acquaintances, and even strangers were sure to remind me. The fact is, DVT can occur at any age and not one single individual is “too young” as they say. I mean honestly, who ever feels that they’re just the right age for such an injury? So chin up… you’re not alone and even more so, here at RejuvaHealth we’re the last ones that will throw you a dowdy pair of compression stockings and say problem solved.

    What is DVT?

    Let’s start with a quick overview of what DVT is and the risks that pose a problem to all walks of life, young and old alike. DVT is a medical condition that arises from the clotting of blood, usually in the calf or thigh, but can also occur in the pelvis area. The clotting of a deep vein extremity is particularly scary because there’s not always a lot of warning and the severity can escalate pretty quickly. This is why it’s especially important t to take care of yourself and listen to your body. A slight pain in you arm or leg may seem like nothing at first and you’ll initially think to just shake it off, however, don’t let such conditions prolong. Rather, take the initiative for further examination, as this little precautionary check-up could save your life.

    blood-clot-skin-temperature

    What does it feel like?

    Stepping outside of the medical aspect, you may wonder what it feels like. You can read all about the signs and symptoms with a quick Google search, but I’d love to share those “feelings” on a more personal level. The pain experienced is often at first localized, but may progressively expand into other areas. Pain and swelling in the area is common, and some people, like myself, notice a drastic difference in the temperature of the skin to the touch. For example, my leg was significantly warmer near my pelvic region and ice cold at my toes. In the beginning, my leg felt as though I had merely pulled a muscle, but within a couple of hours, I had lost the ability to fully extend it and walking felt as though I was dragging an anvil. It was clear something wasn’t right and that’s the point at which I decided to seek medical attention. I would advise against following in my footsteps! Get help before it becomes a bigger problem.

    After the diagnoses, I felt like the nine days I spent recovering in the hospital had aged me 50+ years. I was released on July 3rd and tormented with the idea of celebrating the 4th in a swimsuit, as the battle wounds left on my belly from the Lovenox shots weren’t all that appealing. Not only did I feel physically a mess, but my spirits were also rattled. I was prescribed blood thinners, not knowing if I’d ever stop taking them, and was destined to draw blood every week to keep track of my INR (International Normalized Ratio), or as I like to refer to it, the rate at which I bled. In addition to this, I was on a restricted diet, and for the first time in my life my doctor told me to stay away from greens and cranberry juice. Yes, you read that correctly! As it turns, high levels of Vitamin K can alter the way warfarin works, making it difficult to effectively prevent blood clots. It took a while to get used the changes, but eventually I found a happy medium, where I could still get a taste of my all time favorite Brussels sprouts, and also test within range on my weekly INR.

    warfarin-vitamin-k

    What are some of the things about DVT recovery people don’t talk about?

    A part from the lifestyle changes mentioned above, I also noticed some interesting changes in my body. While taking warfarin I gained some weight, which mostly was attributed to the change in my diet and the inability to workout given the injury. In the search for recipe ideas, I came across “The Coumadin Cookbook,” which I thought worth sharing as it helped keep me on a more healthy diet.

    I also noticed my hair consistency changed, and it regrettably wasn’t for the better. I noticed I lost larger than normal amounts in the shower and in my brush. My hair was thinning right before my eyes, and it was alarming, as no one had mentioned this side effect of warfarin. Are you experiencing something similar? There are many different thickening agents out there, and while I encourage you to do your research, I found the brand Nioxin was what I preferred, as the minty smell wasn’t overpowering.

    One weird, but also really interesting observation was that the pain in my leg was significantly affected by the weather. If a drastic change in the weather was on the upcoming forecast, I’d feel incredible amounts of pressure near the site of my clot. I had brought this up with several different doctors, but none of them had ever heard of anything similar from other patients. Seeming I had gone mad, I turned to DVT support groups online, like Dailystrength.org, and found that just like me, other people were discovering anomalies happening in their own bodies, many of which were also unexplained by their physicians.

    What’s the deal with compression stockings?

    rejuva-compression-socks

    Lastly, I can’t talk about DVT without mentioning, drumroll please… the dreaded COMPRESSION STOCKINGS! On top of all the physical and emotional changes, you’re forced to change your wardrobe and it isn’t quite that easy. No matter where you live, compression stockings don’t ever seem to fit in with the summer or winter fashion trends. However, I want to send along encouragement, because I found that compression stockings were my saving grace. As much as I absolutely despised the look and feel of the orthopedic ones I originally owned, they kept my Post-Thrombotic Syndrome (PTS) to a minimum and had me on the road to recovery, with a reduced chance of developing a new clot. And hey, that’s the whole reason our Founder, Kelsey, created RejuvaHealth. To help you find fashionable compression stockings that make you feel GREAT, as well also help combat leg pain and fatigue. So don’t be a stranger, we have several different options that will get you through a hot summer day or provide a little extra warmth on a cold winter night.

    Whether you need some style advice, or have a specific question about the fit, reach out to us - we’re all here for you. We also enjoy sharing war stories and hearing more from our fellow DVT-ers personal experiences. Until next time – take care of those legs.

  • How to Get Ready for Surgery: 10 tips for an easier procedure & recovery

    Surgery is something many of us take for granted, but it’s also one of the more expensive and risky components of healthcare. With over 50 million inpatient procedures performed every year in the US alone, studies suggest that most of us will undergo not just one, but MULTIPLE invasive procedures during our lifetime.

    Alexander Graham Bell said, “Before anything else, preparation is the key to success.” This wise advice can make both the surgery itself and its subsequent recovery quicker, more effective and less painful.

    Last year I underwent an emergency surgery and learned firsthand what happens when you don’t have that chance to prepare for what you’re about to get into. As a result of entering the procedure uneducated about its details and naïve about the recovery thereafter, the experience was a difficult one.

    As in my case you can’t always know when a hospital stay or surgery may be in your future, but you can prepare for scheduled procedures to make your overall experience a little easier. Here are 10 tips to set up your surgery for success:

    BEFORE YOUR PROCEDURE

    Be a know-it-all

    Learn as much as you can about your condition and suggested surgery. Patients who are informed about their procedure are often more satisfied with its results. Plus the more you know, the more confident and comfortable you’ll be. Meet the members of your medical team and ask them questions about all parts of your surgery – everything from possible complications and risks to healing time. If any part of your team or procedure makes you nervous, do the research to see if there’s a better physician of facility for you.

    Rejuva-healthy-surgery-knowledge

    Consider your blood clot risk

    Surgery can increase the risk of Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism (PE). These complications occur with a blood clot forms in the deep vein of a limb and can be life threatening if the clot breaks loose and travel to your lungs, brain, or heart. Factors such as smoking, age, weight, and some medications can increase DVT and blood clot risk. Review your current medications with your doctor prior to surgery and ask about suggested means of prevention. Many physicians apply “intermittent pneumatic compression devices” to the legs of patients at the conclusion of surgery to help combat post-surgical DVT risk. They’re inflatable, fit around your legs, and are intermittently inflated and deflated with pressure to keep your blood flowing away from your feet & towards your heart. Anti-embolism socks are also commonly suggested for post-surgical patients as another minimally invasive means of preventing blood clots during recovery.

    rejuva-anti-embolism-socks-for-DVT-prevention

    Come clean

    Tell your doctor about any and all medications you may be taking – including supplements. Most assume supplements like daily vitamins, fish oil, and Echinacea are exempt from this (and up to 70% of people don’t mention it to their doctor for this reason) but they’re not. Some can increase bleeding risks, affect anesthesia & interact with other meds. Your doctor may recommend stopping the supplement a week or two before your procedure to avoid complications.

    rejuva-supplements-before-surgery

    Arrange for helping hands

    If you’re like me, one of the last things you like doing is relying on others for help. But in the case you’re recovering from surgery, it’s one of the kindest things you can do for yourself. You’ll probably be drowsy right after surgery and tired for a few days thereafter while your body recovers. You’ll also be achy and may have difficulty moving around. As you recover, allow your body time to be still and ask for help from family and friends. Whether they bring soup, help you complete things you can’t yourself, or even just offer a needed hug, don’t feel guilty. Pushing your body to do things that hurt or will only delay recovery & increase your risk of complications.

    Rejuva-help-after-surgery-hug

    Hit the grocery store

    Before leaving for the hospital, stock your fridge, freezer, and pantry with plenty of healthy foods and drinks to tide you over while homebound recovering. Depending on your surgery, you may have dietary restrictions in the weeks immediately following your procedure. Ask your doctor & research foods that fit within your recovery guidelines so you’re prepped with stress free meal options after surgery. Some of my recovery meal favorites are soups, whole wheat bread, herbal tea, fruit, fresh greens, and smoothie ingredients.

     

    AFTER SURGERY

    Keep it under control – pain management

    As your anesthesia wears off, you may begin to become aware of pain or pressure where you were operated on. This can worsen with movement and time, depending on the medications prescribed. Communicate openly & often to your nurse, physician, and team about your pain and ask for more medicine if you need it. This can help keep you more comfortable, promoting your ability to sleep (a critical component to healing). Before discharge, ask about at-home pain management options and fulfill the prescription within the hospital pharmacy (if available). If in-hospital fulfillment isn’t an option, ask a loved one to pick it up for you so you have it as soon as you’re home.

    rejuva-post-surgery-pain-remedies

    Take advantage of different temps

    Consider supplementing any oral pain medications with hot and/or cold therapy. Personally, I’ve found it to help immensely in my own recoveries & suggest it highly. You can purchase a hot/cold pack from virtually any pharmacy. Some of my favorites can be used in both directions – just microwave it to use as a hot compress or throw it in the freezer for a cold pack. If you don’t have the time or budget to buy one, use a bag of frozen vegetables for cold (my favorite are corn or peas) or a washcloth warmed under hot water.

    rejuva-cold-hot-therapy-after-surgery

    Keep it moving

    Once you’re allowed to resume more regular eating and drinking (most surgeries require no food or drink for a period of time before going under the knife), be proactive about hydration. In addition to ridding you of any post-surgery cottonmouth, drinking plenty of water will help flush medications through your system, promote healthy circulation, and encourage recovery. Complement this with light walking (once your doctor allows it) & graduated compression socks for added circulation-enhancing & recovery benefits. Like the anti-embolism socks your medical team may have you wear immediately after surgery, graduated compression socks can help blood move upward from the limbs and back to your heart to prevent the risk of post-surgical DVT. Just don’t wear the anti-em socks you may have received in the hospital once you’re back home. Many people assume they offer the same function but they actually don’t. Anti-em are designed specifically for immobile, bed-ridden patients while graduated compression socks are for active patients, who will be moving, sitting, and standing.

    rejuva-compression-socks-after-surgery

    Consider what’s comfy

    Depending on your surgery you may have difficulty moving around while recovering. You may also need to access incision sites for cleaning & care. Wear loose-fitting, breathable clothes that allow you to relax comfortably and easily reach wounds. If you can, also pack these in a bag with you to put on once discharged for travelling home from the hospital. Be patient with your body if you experience post-surgical swelling – not only at your incision points but in your abdomen and face as well. Different anesthesia and medications can cause temporary bloat. This should return to normal within a few days and plenty of hydration.

    rejuva-comfortable-clothes-after-surgery

    Practice patience

    Remember, a surgery involves literally cutting up your body. Being unable to participate in your normal routine can be frustrating, but your body went through a major trauma & needs time to recover. Instead of resenting your body for not being 100%, thank it for all that it does do properly. Consider practicing a gratitude exercise. Start by picking 3 things you. Whether the effortless beating of your heart, the natural rhythm of your breathe, or even the ability to see your surroundings with crystal clear vision, focus on those 3 things. Say them aloud, write them in a journal, or repeat those gratitudes in your head. You are what you think you are. So think health, and the body will follow.

    Compression Tips For Travelers

  • Differences Between Sheer & Opaque Compression Stockings

     

    With summer just around the corner, we’re receiving an increasing number of questions about the differences between particular patterns - especially as it relates to sheer vs. opaque finishes.We hear many questions from both new and current compression wearers. Here are some of the most common questions and answers…

    Is there a difference in effectiveness between sheer and opaque compression stockings?

    • No, they both will maintain the advertised levels of compression and you can rest assured that you will be getting the compression you need.

    What are some of the main differences between sheer and opaque compression stockings?

    •  Some of the main differences will be in the look and style as well as how much air and breathability they offer. As you might imagine, a sheer is going to be a bit more breathable than an opaque stocking. An opaque is wonderful for winter when you want the extra warmth.

     Which style will give me better coverage for my legs?

    •  While both styles of stockings will provide you with the necessary amount of compression, certain styles will give you better coverage. An opaque stocking will effectively hide very pronounced varicosities or unwanted sunspots, while the sheer will cover your legs, but still mildly expose your skin. 

     

    Check out our video for a more on hands look at the differences between sheer & opaque compression stockings!

  • Summer Solstice - Fun Facts & Summer Style Picks

    summer

    Did you know that today is the longest day of the year? In the US and many other parts of the world, the sun will shine longer today than any other day. It’s known as Summer Solstice and has been celebrated around the world since anyone can remember.  So, in honor of the first day of summer, we thought we’d offer up some interesting facts about Summer Solstice- ones you can share over dinner with your loved ones or use to impress your friends on Facebook.

    • Today the sun will not set over the North Pole meaning the polar bears will be extra groggy come tomorrow afternoon.
    • Solstice comes from Latin and literally means “sun stand still,” fitting if we don’t say so ourselves.
    • Even though it’s the first day of summer we wouldn’t recommend heading to the beach just yet. Due to thermal inertia is takes some time for the ocean to “heat up” from the cold winter days- wait until mid-July for the real summer warmth to set in.
    • The reasoning for the longer day of sunlight is that the sun actually reaches its highest point in the sky- pretty neat if you ask us.
    • Solstice was traditionally celebrated by dancing around bonfires. Today, it’s often celebrated because it marks the beginning of hunting season and the start of BBQ weekends.
    •  Although there’s no way to know for sure, many historians & astronomers believe Stonehenge was constructed specifically for today’s celestial occurrence. Apparently the monument is built in conjunction with the solstice alignment.
    • If you’re in the Southern Hemisphere today is actually the shortest day of the year. This is due to the Earth’s orbit of the sun and its current angle. No worries though, you can still celebrate by taking advantage of the extra darkness and getting plenty of rest & relaxation. Yes… we’re a little jealous ;-)

     

    So, with it being the longest day of sunlight you know what that means- you should have plenty of time to accomplish everything you need! Just kidding, we all know that even though we have the sun on our side, that doesn’t mean our bodies are up for the challenge. Do what you can and remember to try and sleep in a little later tomorrow. Today may be filled with more daylight, but with that comes the shortest night of the year… Eeek!

    Lastly, don’t forget that with summertime comes the hot, steamy sun. You may want to use the extra time today to stock up on summer compression wear as the warmer days will be here before you know it. A popular summer pick amongst our customers are the Medi Sheer & Soft Thigh Highs in the open toe option. They’re comfortable & breathable, and work great with summer dresses & sandals. Looking for something with a little more spunk? Consider our new Sheer Dot Knee Highs in buff; they’re quickly becoming a favorite for summer business attire.

  • Father's Day Gift Ideas

    What do you get the guy that has everything? You know him … He’s the one who runs straight to the store and purchases exactly what he wants the moment he sets his eye & heart on it.  Whereas shopping for mom can often seem easy (just dash out & grab the shoes she “casually” mentioned last Sunday dinner), our favorite men make us a work a bit harder in the quest for the perfect gift.

    To help you avoid the pre-dad’s day guessing game, we put together a few of our favorite gift ideas below.

  • Mother's Day 2013 Gift Ideas - Treat Mom to Rest, Relaxation, and HealthyLegs!

    Not sure what to get Mom this Mother’s Day? Don’t worry, there’s still time to tell her how much she means to you.

    Moms are always taking care of others so why not remind her to make some time for herself? We love the idea of putting together a spring-themed pamper package made entirely from items geared towards rest & relaxation. She’s always telling you that you do too much and need to take some time out for yourself. Here’s your chance to turn the tables and really emphasize how much you appreciate her and all that she accomplishes. Sure the daily phone calls to say hello and see what you had for lunch can be somewhat overzealous at times, but you know a cheerful “howdy” from Mom is guaranteed to brighten anyone’s day.

    For this Mother’s day, instead of running out to grab her a gift card that’s she’s sure to spend on your brother Johnny’s lunch, put together something that clearly says “This is for all you do and it’s all about you, Mom!”

    We scoured our brains and put together a list of some essentials we think would make a thoughtful gift, or at the very least, get your creative juices flowing so you can create a similar gift that’s just as wonderful, for your Mom.

     MOm

    Consider a summery-beach-style rattan bag, stuffed to the brim with all the necessities for a relaxing day at the spa or hanging poolside at home. Venture to your local shopping center, preferably one that has a few different stores to choose from and round up the following:

    • Oversized Beach Tote to hold all the goodies.
    • Gel eye mask to soothe puffy swollen eyes and give mom that extra wink of sleep:
    • Massage and Spa pack, which includes an assortment of lotions and scrubs, &even a massaging brush to help mom carry out the home leg treatment.
    • Comfortable & cute new sandals for mom to throw on after primping is complete.
    • Support Pantyhose that will help keep her legs feeling great long after they’ve been pampered, plus they’re stylish too.
    • Add a final touch with a personal card handwritten to Mom- Hallmark has them too, but you can always say it better.

    No more procrastinating. Remember .... just as Momma always said, “You can do it!”

    Spring is just around the corner and with the change in weather comes a change in wardrobe.  While most woman make a quick trip to the mall to brush up on this season’s latest trends, those of us compression wearers find the trip to be more difficult.  We’ve listed below a few outfits below for the versatile, modern compression garment wearer as the Spring season finally begins.

    The Working Woman

    1

    With today’s versatility in fashion, it’s become more and more feasible to balance professionalism with a chic sense of style.  Having said that, many working women have come to find this to be a bit difficult, especially when trying to incorporate compression hosiery and the stereotypical limitations that come with it.  RejuvaHealth’s signature collection throws out all of the stereotypes and simplistically allows for a fashionable and sophisticated look that’s perfect for the workplace.  Pictured below are the RejuvaHealth Sheer Dot Pantyhose, a crisp white, classic and casual tuxedo dress and some strong heals.

    The Wedding Guest

    With wedding season fast approaching and the temperature outside rising, finding an outfit to wear can be quite the dilemma – especially if you’re restricted to compression hosiery.  It’s always important to remember comfort when choosing your outfit of choice.  Weddings require a lot of sitting, a lot of eating and a lot of dancing – the last thing that you want to worry about is a wardrobe malfunction halfway through the buffet table.  Keep things simple and feminine while at the same time being seasonally appropriate.  Pictured below are the Solidea Magic 140 Sheer Pantyhose, a beautiful lace blouse, an adorably printed skirt, a simple clutch, and a pair of black pumps.

    The Errand Runner 3

    Running a quick errand is easier said than it is done.  Sure, you could just jump in the car in your sweatpants and a baggy t-shirt.  Although, any casual trip to the grocery store can turn into one of the biggest social events of the month.  It’s worth the extra effort of looking a bit more presentable in account of the unavoidable.  With the right outfit, you can actually pull off the effortless look with your compression knee highs.  Pictured below are RejuvaHealth’s Opaque Diamond Knee Highs, a cozy pair of loose slacks, a denim button up (with a slight front tuck), a comfortable pair of flats and the perfect tote.

No need to sacrifice comfort, though — there are plenty of strategically cozy pieces that are mega stylish, as well.

    A light carry on is a must, a pair of boyfriend jeans, a soft striped shirt, a lightweight jacket, converse sneakers and RejuvaHealth’s travel friendly knee highs --  this outfit is just enough preparation for some kind of delay (knock on wood).  It comfortable yet still cute enough to wear for two days!  What better than way to show your patriotism with some stripes, converse and a (less obnoxious) red jacket?!

    Here are some helpful travel tips:

    • Always pack the essentials in your carry on – toothbrush, change of clothes, face wipes, deodorant – you can never trust estimated time of arrivals...for you OR your luggage.
    • Wear compression socks – during a long flight, your legs can get restless and achy from the poor circulation you’re getting from sitting too long (not to mention the altitude).  This is an easy and preventive measure for health issues that can be sparked when flying.
    • Bring some type of entertainment (I.e. a book, headphones, i-pad).  The flight magazines get boring after a while – trust me.
    • Choose your seat ASAP – the instant you book your flight, choose your seat.  Flights are becoming more crowded now and the only thing worse than getting stuck beside a smelly person is getting stuck in between two smelly people.
