URGENT! Educate Yourself on How to Avoid Genetically Modified Foods or Risk Sterility, Infertility, Cancer, Accelerated Aging etc.

My obsession for chips and salsa/guacamole has come to a halt. Why? Because of my new obsession with the horrors of genetically modified (GM) foods. The corn in tortilla chips is one of the major GM foods. The more I read, the more terrified I became. Especially when I thought about my child spending playdates in other kids homes – with parents or nannies who are not educated on GM dangers. We need to educate ourselves and our friends – FAST! GM foods cause everything from sterility and infertility to allergies and cancers.  Wake-up in restaurants – talk about no regulation.

I have included two articles below. One explains the health problems brought on with GM foods and the other from www.foodbabe.com which gets more specific about food labeling and how companies that use GM foods try to trick customers by cunning labeling strategies.

Health Risks

In 2009, the American Academy of Environmental Medicine (AAEM) stated that, “Several animal studies indicate serious health risks associated with genetically modified (GM) food,” including infertility, immune problems, accelerated aging, faulty insulin regulation, and changes in major organs and the gastrointestinal system. The AAEM has asked physicians to advise all patients to avoid GM foods.

Starting in 1996, Americans have been eating genetically modified (GM) ingredients in most processed foods. Why isn’t the FDA protecting us?

DHEA – a Good Hormone Known as the ‘Fountain of Youth’ – Produce More Naturally

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 Why Sex Gives You the Glow of Youth SO Pump Up Your Libido with these 20 Foods!

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

URGENT! Reduce the Electromagnetic Field Around You for Better Health

Having read quite a lot about the effect of radiation on the body and, having a mother who got breast cancer after having her Hodgkins treated with radiation, I have become increasingly aware of the effects of electromagnetic fields on the human body. As a ‘wellness and anti-aging consultant’ one of my focuses in detoxifying a client’s habitat and lifestyle is to try to reduce their exposure to man-made electromagnetic fields. I have made certain that my own and my child’s bedroom have absolutely no electromagnetic fields and we both sleep very well!

However, most people do not think about electromagnetic fields and it is only recently that our world has become completely over-run by them in the name of convenience and consumerism.

I was recently in Florence and met a very interesting yoga instructor who introduced me to the website of Dr. Katherina Johnson. Below, is an article she wrote on this subject. Continue reading

Four Foods that Age You

Due to biochemical reactions in your body that occur with every type of food you eat on a daily basis, some foods age you faster, while other foods fight aging.
Eat the wrong foods regularly, and you can look and feel 10 or more years older than your real age …
Three of the processes that go on inside your body that have a major impact on your rate of aging are called “glycation”, “inflammation”, and “oxidation”. When we talk about aging, we’re not just talking about wrinkles on your skin or how thick your hair is… we’re also talking about processes that you can’t see, such as how well your organs function, metabolic reactions and your endocrine system.

Fight Aging and Cancer with an Alkaline PH – 4 Steps to Getting There

An alkaline diet may lower your risk of exhaustion, premature aging, sickness, allergies, muscle aches, joint pain and osteoporosis. A study published in 1994 in the New England Journal of Medicine found that women who neutralized their body’s acidic state with an alkalizing agent absorbed calcium and phosphorous better and increased the rate their bodies formed new bone matter.

10 Things You MUST Know About Melatonin – A Good Hormone – and Critical to Anti-Aging

Ah sleep.  It eludes me – often.  From late night party hang-overs and early am work to the late night dinner or even later chirps from the baby’s room – I never get enough.  I used to pop a xanex and conk out but since turning unemployed, hippie, homemaker my life (and my ‘prescriptive connections’) have changed.

Studies as cited in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute have shown that if you don’t have enough melatonin, a woman’s chance of getting breast cancer or a man’s chance of getting prostate cancer increase significantly. They have also found that melatonin is the number one anti-cancer hormone produced in the body and acts as a powerful antioxidant.

But what is melatonin and why is it so important to anti-aging? Continue reading

F*#@ the Face Lift – Fight Sagging Skin with these 18 Anti-Aging Foods

Part of the impetus of my blog is to show women that we can age gracefully and with minimal damage if we find natural (i.e. non-chemical and non-scalpel) methods to optimize the body’s natural functioning.  There is no machine more perfectly engineered than the body.  Everything has a function and works well until we start flooding ourselves with chemicals that were never supposed to be there.  Our consumer culture has made it difficult to resist buying products – for our skin, our mouth, our homes, our car, our air – everything.  But if you want to age slowly you are going to have to return to nature.

Here are 18 foods that tighten and firm skin.  Get a natural face lift while eating! Continue reading

Food is the New Plastic Surgery – But Give Your Kitchen A Face-Lift First with these 23 Steps

Power Foods can cause explosions of pleasure in our mouths while making our skin firmer and plumper at the same time.  If you are serious about anti-aging you are going to have to be more vigilant about what you eat – and where you eat. (Since where is linked to the what!).  Even in the best restaurants you have no idea where the food is coming from and if it is organic or wild – or, more likely, polluted and farm-raised i.e rife with antibiotics etc.

The solution? Cook more.  Yes, you are going to have to start going to the market, buying new knives and a blender – and, if you are really serious, a juicer.

Get started in your kitchen by throwing a few items away and replacing them: Continue reading

Youth Killers – Things that Age You.

All of the below can affect your hormones, metabolic processes, and damage cells.

  • Anything plastic that you might store something warm or hot in – i.e. hot soup.  Get rid of your blender if the body is not plastic.  Get rid of your plastic spatula you use to make pancakes! Plastic is made with a chemical called BPA that can cause developmental and hormonal problems.  The healthier we keep our hormonal balance the younger we will look.  Buy glass storage containers online or at a store.
