Prevent Aging and Sickness! Detox Your Body of Heavy Metals and Other Impurities Easily

Do you love sushi? Do you eat fish regularly? Do you live in a city? Do you spend time near smokers? Do you eat out at restaurants?   Do you buy food that is not organic? Do you use regular deodorants and non-organic beauty care products? Do you use chemical cleaning products? Do you drink tap water? Do you bathe or shower in non-filtered water?

If your answer to any of the above questions is yes – you are at risk for some level of heavy metal or other free radical or polluting contamination. Once your body is ‘infected’ by these pollutants – whether they be mercury, aluminum, lead, fertilizers, carbon monoxide, cadmium, parabens, ammonia (etc.) – they build up. And then? They start interrupting all your systems – hormonal, metabolic, cellular, digestive, immune you name it.   This spells: aging, sickness and weight gain.

So besides being as vigilant as possible – what else can you do? If you are not taking any serious medications (ask your doctor if you are) – invest in Zeolite. I take a huge spoonful of Zeolite in a glass of water every ten days.   Because it is highly absorbent, I do not take vitamins that day.  I have read testimonials by people who take it more often but I believe the body works well on its own if supported by a healthy lifestyle.  You know your risk factors and habits better than I.

But what is Zeolite?

Crème Budwig – Anti-Aging and Immunity-Boosting Nectar of the Gods

I recently saw a friend in London who is minefield of information on all things holistic and healthy.  I make sure I always have pen and paper ready when I see her because she gives me so many ideas to google…

She introduced me to the famed Dr. Catherine Kousmine (1904-1992),  – a Russian (her family was well-to-do and fled the country during the Russian revolution) scientist based in Switzerland who believed in nutrition-based medicine.  Dr. Catherine Kousmine devoted her life to medical research in Switzerland, with special interest in the effects of food on overall health, and cancer and disease prevention.

Preserve Your Skin’s Elastin and Collagen with Grape Seed Extract

In order to protect cells from the degeneration and decay which lead to aging and disease it is essential that we consume a variety of foods and supplements which have strong antioxidant properties.  Thanks to its high levels of proanthocyanidins, a major weapon in my anti-aging arsenal is Grape Seed Extract.

Expensive supplements, derived from pine bark, contain 85% proanthocyanidins while grape seed extract contains 95% proanthocyanidins.   But what is proanthocyanidin you ask?

In the future, health care providers may hand out proanthocyanidin pills as readily as they recommend aspirin today. A steady stream of animal and in vitro studies supplemented by epidemiological evidence and a smattering of preliminary human studies reveal numerous health benefits associated with these compounds. Chief among the benefits is antioxidant protection against heart disease and cancer. Continue reading

Shilajit – Mineral-Dense Himalayan Mud – for Those Who Dare

This article is dedicated to the truly vain, the experimental, the Lara Crofts, the Indiana Joneses, the trail breakers, the mad scientists, the mountain-climbers, the women who wear 5 inch heels and mix their own creams and those who believe there is some magic in nature’s untouched state…  If you are conventional and believe in the FDA – stop reading now.

Now, I know I am a sucker for anything that sounds like a magical potion for anti-aging.  I know myself.  My heart beats a little faster when I read about Ormus Minerals (perfect foods like avocados, almonds, apricot seed kernels etc. – see the link at the end of this article to get some goose bumps for yourself…).  So when I overheard a yogi friend talking about his new Shilajit-fix my ears grew bigger.  The below information is from a site that sells Shilajit (http://shilajitsupertonic.info/) but I buy mine from Upaya Naturals.  I have been taking it for about a month now with no side effects and my skin looks wonderful but – I DO write an anti-aging blog so it is hard to tell if the Shilajit is making a significant impact or if my skin and health is a result of all my efforts.  (With all that I’m doing I better look 40 at 65 dammit!)

I am entranced by the idea of Shilajit because our soil is so depleted of minerals and nutrients.  Taking vitamins/nutraceuticals is an option (that I embrace) but the idea of drinking mineral and nutrient rich soil that was plucked from rock crevices far from mankind has a utopian tinge of romance sprinkled with a little Kipling no? Oh Lama where art thou? Continue reading

Eat Strategically: 11 Foods that Clean Your Body Naturally

Human Growth Hormone (HGH): The Youth Hormone. 6 Steps to Producing More Naturally

Ever wonder what magical anti-aging potion over-educated, vain women are panting to get their hands on? Human Growth Hormone serum. The kind you can only get at a doctor’s office which is delivered by syringe and usually only available to children with growth issues. Of course, I have looked into buying HGH online and am amazed by the rich assortment of choice. However, a chemical engineer friend of mine told me that all of those products were completely bogus and potentially dangerous and unless I had access to a prescription and a syringe of the real stuff I might as well search for natural methods to increase my production of HGH – or try to summon Gandalf to help.
