Winter Skin Can Mean Dry Skin

Dry Skin Cures Now that the cold weather is here, skin and hair can dry out quickly. You can hydrate from the inside out. I’ve discovered a few things that can make a big difference. Also, moisturize topically with some of my new products such as Super Hydrating Creme with collagen. Arctic cold liver oil. Take 2 to 3 tsp. of cod liver oil in the evening before bed on an empty stomach. This is the best brand I’ve tried. I’ve used other brands and they didn’t make a big difference. This brand does. Drink 8 glasses of water and vegetable juice. increase your vitamin C. Include more lemons and limes in your juice recipes and your water. Vitamin C helps the skin produce collagen, which gives it a plump, moisturized look and feel. Include bioflavonoids. They protect the skin from free radical damage and help vitamin C work better. Lipoid acid. A study published in the September 2010 “British Journal of Dermatology” suggests that foods containing lipoic acid can reduce dry skin and damage caused by sun exposure. Foods that contain lipoic acid include tomatoes, poultry, round steak and green leafy vegetables. Schedule your free skin care consultation here.

Stir until well combined.  Scoop half the mixture into each half...

Brain Detox Juices

Brain Detox Juices

Brain Detox Juices Since I’ve been coaching the 5 Day Juice Fassst and 30-Day Detox groups, I’ve heard from many people who have ditched their brain fog along with the toxins. These programs detox the brain along with the rest of the body. I checked the research to see if any of the juices were especially helpful in detoxing the brain. It turns out a number of them are especially good. Beet Juice The nitrates that occur naturally in beets have been found to boost blood flow to the brain, which helps with mental performance. They also help boost your energy and performance levels. And they are a key liver detoxifier. Blueberry Juice With their high levels of gallic acid, blueberries protect the brain from degeneration and stress. Dark Leafy Green Juice With bright green leaves like kale, chard, spinach, and romaine lettuce, we can keep dementia at bay. A 2015 study (Health Day News) found that a serving of dark leafy greens a day can help the aging brain. They discovered that adults who ate one or two servings of leafy green veggies a day had slower mental deterioration than those who ate no vegetables. Turmeric Juice This powerful anti-inflammatory spice has been found to improve the brain’s oxygen intake, keeping you alert and able to process information more efficiently. Beet Berry Brain Detoxer 1 beet, with green leaves (leaves are optional) 1 cucumber 2-3 leaves of your favorite dark greens such as kale or chard 1 cup blueberries 1/2 green apple 1-inch chunk turmeric or 1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder Juice all ingredients, stir and enjoy! (If you can’t find fresh turmeric, stir in turmeric...

Pigmentation and Hormone Imbalance

Pigmentation and Hormone Imbalance

Pigmentation and Hormone Imbalance Melasma is uneven production of pigmentation on the face, which presents as dark brown/ black skin patches. Sun exposure is the primary cause while additional factors may include certain medications or health issues, hormonal imbalances caused by pregnancy/menopause or use of oral contraceptives. Hormones, especially estrogen, have a big part in how hyper-pigmentation affects the skin. Some who experience hormone-induced hyper-pigmentation, which can also be caused by progesterone, notice that the discoloration ends once hormone levels stabilize. FemComfort can help bring balance to your hormones, which will greatly help your skin. Also, liver detox can help prevent brown spots. And find the right cosmetics can also help a great deal such as Herbal Pigmentation Correction Serum.

Reverse ALZ Naturally Study

Reverse ALZ Naturally Study

Reverse Alzheimer’s Naturally Dr. Dale E. Bredesen (UCLA) found that Alzheimer’s is a complex disease affected by sleep, diet, and exercise. “These all — and other things — all contribute to this critical balance in plasticity,” said Bredesen. In the study, ten memory-loss patients, some with brain-scan-confirmed patterns of Alzheimer’s, participated in a small UCLA trial called MEND (Metabolic Enhancement for NeuroDegeneration). In the UCLA protocol, patients made dramatic lifestyle changes. They avoided simple carbs, gluten and processed foods. They increased their fish intake, took yoga and meditated. They were instructed to take melatonin, get adequate sleep, incorporate vitamin B-12, vitamin D-3 and fish oil. Within six months, nine patients saw a noticeable improvement in memory. One patient, who was in the late stages of Alzheimer’s, did not show improvement. UCLA researchers say the findings suggest at least early on, changing a person’s metabolic processes can bring back memory and cognitive function. Six of the patients in the study who had to discontinue working were all able to return to their jobs. The authors say some patients were followed up to two and a half years and the memory improvements remained.1 1 https://www.aging-us.com/article/100690/text THE ALZHEIMER’S REVERSAL PROGRAM If you or someone you know is suffering from mental decline, here’s what you should do: No gluten No simple carbs/no sugar No processed foods Eat wild caught fish Exercise Pray/meditate Take melatonin Get plenty of sleep (studies show people with sleep issues are more prone to ALZ) Take vitamin B-12 Take vitamin D3 Take fish oil (I recommend Arctic cod liver oil) Drink veggie juice; take Garden’s Best Juice Powder The Kame Project showed that those who drank juice more than three times per week compared to less than once a week were 76 percent less likely to develop Alzheimer’s disease.  (The American Journal of Medicine, 2006) The Big Apple A team of researchers at Neurodegeneration Research University of Massachusetts found that drinking apple juice helped mice perform better than normal in maze trials, and prevented the decline in performance that was observed in aged mice. 1/2 green apple 1 handful of spinach 1 lemon, peeled if not organic 1-inch-chunk ginger root Cut produce to fit your juicer’s feed tube.

Heartbreaking Fact

Heartbreaking Fact

Depression & Antidepressants It is with a heavy heart that I am sharing that a dear friend of mine committed suicide this week. She was on an antidepressant because she’d been depressed and wasn’t sleeping well. She was given the antidepressant to help her sleep. Instead it clouded her judgment and she took her life with those pills. I am absolutely devastated. That is why I’m writing this newsletter to warn you. Beware of antidepressants. The drug my friend was on has a high incidence of suicides. And if you aren’t sleeping well, use something besides an antidepressant to sleep. Warn everyone you know. These drugs are dangerous. “Evidence reveals some inconvenient truths, demonstrating that antidepressants actually increase the risk of suicide. Furthermore, just as the serotonin model of depression has never been scientifically validated, there is no evidence that antidepressants meaningfully and statistically significantly resolve depression – but, instead, we are confronting a growing signal of harm, including live-streamed suicides and school shootings committed by those recently prescribed. And a new study from Sweden that examines antidepressants in the context of suicide suggests that antidepressants are pushing people towards, not away from, suicide. Swedish researchers analyzed data in a timespan in which antidepressant prescriptions rose steadily; the percentage of young women who were prescribed antidepressants increased from 1.4% to 5%. Approximately 500 young women committed suicide during this time period, and because toxicological analyses were performed postmortem, researchers could determine if these women were on antidepressants at the time that they made the decision to end their lives. If antidepressants indeed resolve depression and prevent suicide, those who committed suicide, would be the unmedicated ones right? Also, suicide rates would decrease as antidepressant prescriptions increased. Yet, researchers found the opposite. As antidepressant prescriptions increased 270% over 15 years, suicide rates also increased. Strikingly, more than half of the young women who committed suicide (52%) were prescribed antidepressants within a year of committing suicide. And antidepressants were detected in 41% of the women who committed suicide, showing that they were under the influence of antidepressants at the time of death. In the remaining subjects, it is also important to know whether they had recently discontinued psychotropic medication. As many who have done so would tell you, abrupt (or sometimes even cautious) tapering of medication can lead to suicidality and homicidality with associated impulsivity (long after the medication itself is undetectable).”1 Many people suffer from a depressive disorder and live in the shadows of their pain because they don’t want to get the stigma of having any kind of mental problem. It’s nothing to be embarrassed by or ashamed of. Approximately 21.5 million Americans suffer from depression.  There is help naturally. I’m not saying diet is everything. Certainly not. There are inner wounds that need healing. But one thing I’ve learned through the years is that when you feel truly healthy, you’re not as prone to depression. You’re more resilient. You can work on things that need attention in your soul. To truly be well we need to work on our whole person—body, soul and spirit to heal the pain and step out of depression into life. But that said, I’ve had numerous people tell me their depression left like fog clearing in the morning when they began my juice...
