Bone Broth for Anti-Aging, Gut Health, Cellulite, Weight Loss, Hair, Fighting Acne and More!

Looks light – but it is actually rather hardy!

 

The word has been out on bone broth for some time now thanks to countless celebrity endorsements of trendsetters like Gwyneth Paltrow. As an anti-aging expert and weight loss consultant, I can confirm that the magic is true!  We always have something to learn from our ancestors and bone broth is no exception.

When we were a younger society living without processed and packaged foods, we had our own farms and livestock.   Waste and garbage were virtually non-existent at this time because our forbears thriftily made use of everything.  Livestock was food but also, leather, pillow stuffing etc. Today, most people buy parts of animals when they want to eat meat: ribs, breasts, thighs.  The whole animal is discarded elsewhere.  However, by participating in a faster, ‘easier’ life we are missing out on the secrets hidden within what was handed to us i.e. those mysteries locked within the perfection of nature as untouched by man.  The more I learn about them, the more incredulous I am about how they have been overlooked as non-invasive or harmless solutions/cures for health and beauty!

One of the ‘secrets’ is bone broth.  It is a confirmed anti-aging asset as it helps plump skin, diminish wrinkles and supports nail and hair health.  It is full of all kinds of nutrients which help the gut – the seat of all wellness and digestion.

What are the Nutrients in Bone Broth?

Collagen – The main nutrient in bone broth for skin, hair and nails is collagen! Bone broth is loaded with collagen, a protein found in the connective tissue, cartilage, bone marrow, tendons, ligaments and bones of cows, goats, sheep and other vertebrates. Collagen is what maintains skin elasticity and firmness as well as promotes smooth and supple skin.

Bone broth is a wonder for your skin, hair and nails!

Food Order and Combining – Why it is Important for Beauty, Health, Energy and Weight Loss

Choosing what to eat and when to eat and what to eat it with are questions that everyone faces daily. Most of us are calorie counters following mainstream diet trends that we pick up from beauty magazines, friends or hear that our favorite celebs are following. But few of us have been educated on the importance of food sequence or food combining. For me, it was a revelation that took pounds off, increased my energy and made my skin glow! I credit the books of Natalia Rose (guru and goddess) and the incredible Kimberly Snyder. Chapeau ladies!  I wish someone had taught me these practices as a child. My daughter is reaping the benefits!

The trick is to maximize the benefits of the foods that we consume in order to gain crucial vitamins, minerals and enzymes. Proper sequential food ordering and pairing enable us to avoid diets and achieve glowing skin because this practice optimizes digestion. A glorious side effect will be greater energy and deeper sleep. The more effectively you can master this practice the less you will have to work at exercising to lose weight. Optimal digestion leads to natural skin toning!

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.

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

Another GOOD Hormone and How to Produce More Naturally

Many women are not aware that we produce the ‘male’ hormone testosterone and how important it is to our overall health – sexual, reproductive and otherwise.  If levels fall, we can age more rapidly and our bodies become weaker.

Testosterone is the principal anabolic and sex hormone in humans, responsible for sexual desire and function, muscular hypertrophy, densification of bones, and hair growth. Compared to females, males famously produce about ten times the amount of testosterone, but females are far more sensitive to its effects. Though testosterone is largely responsible for those traits and characteristics that are considered “masculine” – physical strength, body hair, dominance, and virility – both sexes require it for proper sexual and physical development. In mammals, males secrete it primarily from the testicles (about 95% of the total amount, in fact) and women secrete it from the ovaries. A modicum is produced in the adrenal glands in both sexes.

5 Fabulous Anti-Aging Vitamins

I am the world’s biggest vitamin junkie – but also – increasingly – the laziest.  Sometimes, I get obsessed by a particular vitamin and incorporate it into my daily dozen.   But, there is a core group I take daily.  Here are 5 of them: Continue reading

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

Pop a Cherry for Ageless Skin and Other Startling Benefits

I have been eating literally pounds of cherries in the past few weeks and because my skin looks more fabulous than usual I started did a little bit of research – and ran out to buy some more!

Cherry season is NOW and once you read the below you won’t want to miss out on the chance to eat as many as possible while you can.  Aim for organic as always.

A member of the plum family, most commercial cherries are derived from just two species: the sweet – or wild cherry – known as Prunus Avium, and the sour cherry, known as Prunus Cerasus.

Cherries have been used as a medical aid since the 1950′s to treat gout sufferers, since their ability to reduce uric acid in the blood improves symptoms significantly. But as studies into this bright juicy berry advance, more and more is being discovered about how cherries can improve our health: 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
