Ginger – a Miracle Food for Anti-aging and Immunity+ My Special Anti-Aging Daily Drink!

Ginger is an oft overlooked miracle worker.  It is a normal part of the Asian diet but rarely incorporated into the Standard American Diet (SAD!).   Not only will ginger boost your immunity, but it is a massive anti-inflammatory. Why is this a plus for anti-aging?

The immune system responds to injury or disease with inflammation. This is a normal, reparative reaction that is necessary for healing. But not all inflammation is good.

“When inflammation persists beyond its intended borders and purpose, however, the immune system mistakenly attacks normal cells, and the process that ordinarily heals becomes destructive. It is now widely accepted that chronic inflammation is the root cause of many serious illnesses, especially those related to aging,” says Dr. Andrew Weil, Director of the Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine.

The Fertility Nut n’ Spice Smoothie – Drink it for Your Skin, Your Hormones, Immunity, Anti-Cancer, and Anti-Aging

This drink is not for the faint of heart so if you are one of those people who aren’t capable of making a big effort for beauty, youth and immunity – stop reading now.

I drink this concoction about 5x a week and yes, I gag a little during the process.  My baby always watches me with great fascination while I glug back this nut-spice smoothie.  But ladies, I glow, I shine and I exude health and vitality… And I might be able to crank out a baby when I am 60!

You will need a coffee bean grinder – about $20 (worldwide).  Below, are the ingredients and their amazing benefits.

Put a spoonful of curcumin/turmeric, nutritional yeast, cinnamon and wheat germ in a large glass.  Grind all your seeds (make certain to keep your seeds ‘oil-ripe’ by preserving in the fridge) and put in the glass.  Add water and stir vigorously.  Stir before every sip as well.  Swallow.   Because you have ground the seeds they will be more quickly and easily absorbed and digested by the body.  Remember, eating solids causes the body to produce stress hormones in order to break down food…

After drinking this drink you will promptly lose your appetite for the entire day.  So it is an excellent nutrition-diet (and may have laxative effects on some). Continue reading

Anti-Aging Chef Francois Bronn’s Latest Recipe: Warm Roasted Pumpkin Salad

Everything about this salad is magical!  The key is to serve the pumpkin straight from the oven, with warming aromas of spice and citrus perfuming the air.   It’s the perfect way to start an autumn evening.
The nutrients in pumpkin are first class. Extremely high in fiber and low in calories, pumpkin packs an abundance of disease-fighting nutrients, including potassium, pantothenic acid, magnesium, and vitamins C and E.   Pumpkins are a super foods because of their synergistic combination of carotenoids. Pumpkin contains one of the richest supplies of bio-available carotenoids known to man. Indeed, a half-cup serving of pumpkin gives you more than two times the recommended daily dietary intake of alpha-carotene and 100% of the recommended daily dietary goal of beta-carotene.  Be sure to save the seeds by the way.  Pumpkin seeds are nutritional powerhouses wrapped up in a very small package, with a wide variety of nutrients ranging from magnesium and manganese to copper, protein and zinc.  They contain a wide array of beneficial plant compounds known as phytosterols and free-radical scavenging antioxidants.

9 Reasons to Indulge in as Much Sex as Possible (with a supportive and loving person!)

  1.      It gets your heart pumpin’ blood flowin’ and nitric oxide movin’

When you are doing anything that feels good, like healthy exercise or having an orgasm, your Nitric Oxide levels rise and blood circulation is increased. More than that, Nitric Oxide is the main neurotransmitter – the one that regulates all the other neurotransmitters. And because it’s a gas, it goes through the body instantly. So high Nitric Oxide levels, let’s say from clitoral stimulation, will instantly change the neurotransmitter levels of the brain and balance them out. As your biochemistry changes, inflammation decreases, and chances of heart disease lessens, and the adrenals improve. Continue reading
