You can spend as much as you like on expensive creams and procedures. However, these foods will re-vitalize your skin from the inside out for a lot less money. No need to buy them all at the same time and remember to eat what you cut into as quickly as possible – before the fruit or vegetable oxidizes… So get the golden glow of a goddess and take this list to the grocery store!
In order to slow aging as much as possible it is essential you learn about your body. Knowing how these perfect machines function is the first step to fine tuning your habits in order to maximize potential. We are responsible for how our bodies decay and how fast. In a perfect environment we can dramatically slow the aging process. The body functions well enough until we stop pummeling it with toxins and fake substances (processed food – perfume etc.). The closest I ever got to God was the first time I witnessed a human dissection. Every organ, gland, vein – you name it – has meaning. Seeing the blackened lungs of a smoker up close made me realize how responsible we are for our body’s condition.
Boosting the production of good hormones is critical to the anti-aging process. DHEA is one such hormone.
DHEA, or dehydroepiandrosterone, is known as the ‘fountain of youth.’ It is made from cholesterol by the adrenal glands, which sit on top of your kidneys. Estrogen and then testosterone are both made from this steroid hormone. Someone who lacks essential levels of DHEA really can benefit from taking a supplement and they can be easily found in your local health food store. But before you supplement with DHEA capsules, first check with your health care practitioner to make sure that you are in fact deficient in this hormone. Continue reading

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

You’ve heard the word. You’ve probably heard about it in relation to diet. Cut your finger accidentally and the area will swell, redden, and heat up. This type of acute inflammatory response is the body’s reaction to trauma, and it’s an essential part of the healing process. But inflammation can be harmful when it hangs around too long and refuses to leave. When the inflammation switch refuses to turn off, the body operates as if it is always under attack (the older we get, the more likely this is to happen). White blood cells flood the system for weeks, months, and even years. Continue reading
