De-hydration, reduced oxygen, confined space, bad food and over-exposure to too many people and their germs takes its toll on your face and body. Here’s what you can do to protect yourself.

Naturally, I am not referring to his ingestion of hemlock. No, this article is about apple cider vinegar or APC forthwith. APC was one of the cleansing bullets I riddled myself with throughout my hedonistic histoire in order to recover from a particularly late night – usually one of those evenings not interrupted by anything as humdrum as sleep.
The mere act of drinking APC was a penitent gesture. For me, it was (is) hemlock – minus death. But don’t let me discourage you before you read the 11 reasons you should drink it! Ironically, APC revitalizes, energizes and has all kinds of wonderful effects on the body. (Although I noted that a few ‘medical’ sites had nothing flattering to say about the humble APC. They hinted its powers are suspect.) But who can doubt Socrates? And, don’t doctors and pharmaceuticals WANT you sick if only to stay in business?
A recent trip to the U.S. brought me once again into contact with American TV commercials (when I realized the mute button on the remote didn’t work). I was dumbstruck by the sheer, endless number of ads dealing with sickness and medical breakthrough ‘cures’ and solutions. The laughably lengthy list of possible side-effects follows in a semi-whisper. Continue reading
In order to protect cells from the degeneration and decay which lead to aging and disease it is essential that we consume a variety of foods and supplements which have strong antioxidant properties. Thanks to its high levels of proanthocyanidins, a major weapon in my anti-aging arsenal is Grape Seed Extract.
Expensive supplements, derived from pine bark, contain 85% proanthocyanidins while grape seed extract contains 95% proanthocyanidins. But what is proanthocyanidin you ask?
In the future, health care providers may hand out proanthocyanidin pills as readily as they recommend aspirin today. A steady stream of animal and in vitro studies supplemented by epidemiological evidence and a smattering of preliminary human studies reveal numerous health benefits associated with these compounds. Chief among the benefits is antioxidant protection against heart disease and cancer. Continue reading

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
