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?

11 Ways to Increase Production of Anti-Aging Hormones Naturally

Given my hereditary vanity and my playgirl lifestyle, I was compelled – out of sheer preservationary panic – to extensively research anti-aging methods.  This research led to a hardy consumption of resources relating to hormones.

Hormones are the chemical messengers that keep our body in balance.  They control pretty much every system in our body including our reproductive system, our metabolic processes, our immunity, our digestion, our ability to regenerate and the speed at which we age. Continue reading

Anti-Wrinkle Creams Don’t Give a Post-Coital Glow So Flush, Blush and Blossom with a Better Anti-Aging Potion… Shea Butter

I knew a girl in Manhattan who was famous for her vast wealth, her couture day wear, her Park Avenue spread and her shiny skin.  Let’s call her G.G. – for Glow Girl.

G.G. was a chain smoker but she had better skin than non-smokers.  After a particularly messy cocktail party chez elle, I cornered her in her bedroom and demanded her secret. We were enveloped in a huge cloud of smoke (we were both lit) and I could barely see her but for the effervescent gleam of her skin which was like a private light source. Continue reading

Will Smoking and Drinking Age Me? Tricks for the Boozy Smoker

The quick answer is yes.  But the more convoluted response is not necessarily.  As a passionate ex-hedonist and former party girl (known as ‘the vampire’ or ‘Dorian Grey’ because I never age) there were certain tricks I employed to balance my intake and slow my exposure to cocktails and smoke.

Cigarettes (and other smokable substances)

  • If you are deeply obsessed with anti-aging (which I was), pre-roll American Spirit Organic tobacco before you go out and whack them in your purse.  My Serbian grandma Daisy was a chain-smoker but never looked old.  She told me that it is the chemicals in the tobacco and the filters on the cigarettes which are what are really bad for you.  I don’t like soggy cigarette ends so I always add a little stiff-paper filter – usually from somebody-I-plan-on-forgetting’s business card.
