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

6 Reasons to Eat Ginger from Anti-Aging and Cancer Prevention to Libido Enhancement

I have become a tad obsessed with ginger of late because I have been reading so many Deepak Chopra’s books.  His references to Ayurvedic healing brought me to the many benefits of ginger.  I add it to cookies, soups, and freshly squeezed juices.   Here are six reasons why you should buy some ginger immediately!

Just a Spoonful of Essential Fatty Acid Oil a Day will Keep the Wrinkles Away! So get Oily for a Younger You!

I have been drinking teaspoons of oil before bed for years.  Throughout my pregnancy, I kept 6 bottles of oil and a spoon next to my bed.  Every night, I religiously took a spoonful of each in order to help the brain development of my baby.  It is a common misconception that oil makes us fat.  And I cannot tell you how aggravating it is that so many people think in terms of calories and not overall health.  We Westerners would do well to adopt a more Eastern approach to our bodies by looking at the whole wellness of the body instead of attacking one area.   To deny yourself critical oils because of a diet might make you thinner but your face and skin will likely age more rapidly because (for instance) the integrity of the cell membrane has been compromised.  Yes, avocados may be high in calories but you should be exercising and the oil in avocados is one of the best for your body, your immunity, your skin and keeping you young.  At 105 pounds while maintaining a diet that includes an avocado a day I can tell you that drinking the right oils will not harm you.

Essential fatty acids are, as they sound, fats that are necessary within the human body. Though you’ve probably often heard the word “fats” and associated it with bad health, there are some essential fatty acids that are necessary for your survival. Without them, you could cause serious damage to different systems within the body.  Essential, unoxidized oils speed up fat metabolism. This is a widely misunderstood aspect of human metabolism. Essential oils provide a steady-state source of energy, and prevent sugar-insulin-adrenaline roller coasters. Other clinical benefits of essential oils include their value in the prevention and management of the following disorders: Continue reading

Anti-Aging Vitamin Essential: Evening Primrose Oil

Evening primrose oil is a fabulous nutrient for your skin (and overall health) that you’ve probably never heard of.

Evening primrose oil comes from the seeds of a flowering plant that grows wild in North America and many other parts of the world. The flower opens at night, hence the name Evening Primrose, and its seeds have oil which has been known to have wonderful healing powers – full of essential fatty acids. Continue reading

Yoga Positions that Help You Stay Younger by Triggering the Release of Good Hormones and Alleviating the Release of Bad Hormones

To be a luscious goddess or an ageless vampire you must also be a yogi. Now, I am not saying you have to do it full time or spend a lot of money on classes. What I am saying, is that learning about the yoga practice and choosing to do a number of simple positions at home on a regular basis can have MAGICAL anti-aging results. Have you ever seen a dedicated yogi that did not exude a youthful aura – in body and spirit? One benefit of yoga vs a gym is that you can do it anywhere as it requires no equipment. If you don’t know the positions get a dvd until you do. Personally, I aim to do my exercise routine – which is half yoga – 5 days a week for one hour. I make the time by either getting up earlier or going to bed later. But I make it happen – and the results are there. Continue reading
