Learning Something New Could Stave Off Alzheimer’s

images (1)Last night we watched a program in which Angela Rippon investigated whether she had inherited the genes responsible for Alzheimers, as her mother, and possibly her father had suffered from it. Luckily she appeared not to have inherited it to her great relief.

It seems possible that by the age of 85 one in 5 of the population could have signs of dementia. It seems to take 15 years from onset to develop. Plaque develops in the brain, a sticky substance which smothers and kills healthy cells. Usually this develops in old age. However a doctor discovered in some of her older patients although scans revealed plaque, some were unaffected and showed no symptoms. There is much to be discovered about the disease.

Usually Alzheimers affects the elderly but there is a type which affects 30 year olds. A great deal of research is being carried out especially with this younger group. This group may reveal the secrets to finding delaying drugs, or cures.

It is thought there are things we can all do to ward off dementia. Besides the obvious suggestion of living a healthy lifestyle, it has been discovered, sleep is possibly very important as when we sleep soundly for regular long periods the accumulated plaque is washed away with a chemical in the spinal fluid.

Exercise is considered important as is keeping the brain stimulated. Learning a language is considered highly effective also learning new things. It would appear dancing might help too, regular stimulation seems to be important and reading writing and arithmetic could also be helpful. Talking to my mother well into her 90’s she has decided to write here shopping list in french, play Cribbage and she already completes anagrams daily in order to stimulate her brain. Perhaps we should take a leaf out of her book!

On this note I will press on with learning Spanish, which had come to a standstill! I have also been learning all the techniques of internet marketing over the last few years, there is always something new to learn so hopefully it will keep my brain stimulated; that seems a bit lightweight after my mothers resolve!

So baby boomers and retirees, consider how you can step up your learning skills, prevention is better than cure, plus at present there isn’t a cure!

For those contemplating setting up an online business, I can highly recommend it. It is truly satisfying seeing what you can achieve. Extra cash is always useful, and you build your business in the comfort of your own home. In fact you can work anywhere with your laptop.

If you are looking for a simple inexpensive starting point affiliate marketing with the guidance of a coach is the simplest way to begin. Products are provided by your coach and mentor, plus professionally written sales pages that bring repeat business, and training to market the products. You will work to a laid out method that has been successful for others before you, and you can start earning whist you are learning. If you attempt to set up all on your own there is so much to learn before you can begin earning.

So whatever you choose to learn, I wish you success in you venture, and good health.

Why Am I Fat and Aging Prematurely?

download (3)I just have to speak out after seeing sponsored ad, after sponsored ad, about weight loss and anti-aging; the most recent being about eat this, and eat that; use this skin care product, and that one. It doesn’t matter what you eat or put on your skin if it’s toxic. Our food supply is toxic. Our personal care products are toxic. Both cause obesity, premature aging, and disease. If you think the FDA thinks of your safety first; you’re sadly mistaken. The FDA doesn’t care about your safety. It’s time you realize it. Why do you think Organic is ‘All-The-Buzz’ today? I’m talking about Certified Organic foods and Certified Organic personal care products.

THE ART OF MANIPULATION

Allow me to give you a little insight.

The food and beauty industry has not only created a huge market for its wares; it has also been specifically designed to target women with weight loss foods and beauty products designed to appeal to our desire to age beautifully. Obviously, their advertising campaigns have paid off. Unfortunately, unsuspecting women from all walks of life are unaware they are really being lied to by these industries who have orchestrated one of the most successful and well-planned marketing maneuvers in history.

By distorting and hiding facts, by manipulating the statistics, and by withholding scientific research in the pursuit of profits, these powerful industries has once again jeopardized lives by exposing women to premature aging and to an increased incidence of illnesses such as cancer, diabetes, heart disease, strokes, allergies, arthritis, kidney stones, birth defects, and other toxic related diseases.

We have unknowingly brought premature aging upon ourselves through poor dietary habits, lifestyle factors, and exposure to toxins. It is our ignorance that has made us vulnerable to the food and beauty industries that have intentionally distorted the facts and willingly sacrificed the health of millions of women for profit and greed. It is only by our willingness to take responsibility for our bodies and make the commitment to return to a healthy, balanced way of life that we’ll be able to reverse the damage, regain our health, and our beauty.

OUR FOOD SUPPLY

Let’s talk about our food supply first. The toxins in our food supply cause disease and obesity. It’s not you or your DNA makeup; it’s the chemicals that are in our foods. GMO’s (Genetically Modified Foods) are produced with chemicals that kill over time. I’m talking about wheat, corn, golden rice, vegetables, fruits, potatoes, and so much more. The toxins found in them go straight to your gut and grow from there. Your body can’t process the toxins so your organs are burdened to the point that, over time, your immune system weakens and before you know it, health problems ensue.

Another horrendous thing that comes to mind is bleached flour. In the beautiful, trusting days of the past, flour was bleached in the sun but now it’s sprayed with chemicals and if you were in the same room? You would die. The chemicals used, kill the cells in the pancreas that cause diabetes. Why do you think diabetes is so prevalent today? Well, now you know. Unfortunately, the cells cannot be replenished. It’s a death sentence. Still think the FDA has your safety in mind first?

Another horrendous thing that comes to mind is milk. Seriously? Milk is marketed as wholesome to the school system and Americans, but it is not. Did you know that milk causes osteoporosis? Now you do.

And this is only what I’ve discovered through experience. No doubt there is so much more. All you have to do is search the internet to know what I say is true.

Another thing you should know is that Certified Organic foods, for the most part, are fat burning foods. Why? Because they are not toxic! Toxins cause obesity, not naturally occurring foods. Doesn’t matter what they are because there is nutritional value to them.

It’s not how much you eat; it is what you eat. Organic foods are fat burning and delicious! You could actually eat more fat burning foods and not have a problem with obesity; wild-caught fish, tuna, salmon; grass-fed beef, free-range chickens and eggs, wheat-free breads, real butter, organic desserts, organic foods that are produced on chemical-free farms, and animals that are not fed GMO feed or given growth hormones or antibiotics.

Did you know that 86% Cacao Intense Dark Chocolate is fat burning? Did you know that Black Rice has the highest level of antioxidants to prevent premature aging and is the most powerful of all super foods? Did you know that Chinese Wolfberries has the highest level of antioxidants of all superfruits?

OUR PERSONAL CARE PRODUCTS

Now, let’s talk about personal care products that are adding, even more, toxins upon our already burdened bodies. Your body is failing because it is overloaded with toxins from our food supply. Then you use shampoos, conditioners, body lotions, soaps, beauty creams, serums, etc. Preservatives in our personal care products are just as toxic. Take a look at the label. If you see Parabens, Phthalates, Formaldehyde, or ‘fragrance’; you’re looking at disease and premature aging.

Parabens are estrogen-mimicking chemicals widely used in cosmetics and body lotions as preservatives and have been linked to hormone disruption and cancers of the endocrine and reproductive systems.

Phthalates are another class of hormone-disrupting chemicals that cause a host of serious health issues. They mimic or block the hormones your body naturally produces. Even slight alterations in hormone levels can cause infertility, breast cancer, metabolic disorders, birth defects, etc. Is anyone experiencing any of these problems?

Formaldehyde, another preservative, has been linked to skin irritation and cancer. Read the labels; what are you putting on your hair and skin that is absorbed into your bloodstream that causes disease and premature aging?

REVERSING THE DAMAGE

You don’t have a chance. Or do you? You do! Let me explain.

Organic foods are not only nutrient dense, they are healthy and I say this with all sincerity. Any drink or food that is diet is actually more fattening. Any substitute for real butter is more fattening. Let’s talk about diet sodas. Really? There is more added sugar in diet drinks, and that sugar is more fattening than regular soda. Wow… it’s all in the marketing right? Don’t believe me? Just do a little search of your own. It will be eye opening. Anyway, I digress; let’s move on.

You want to look for foods that are Organic… Non-GMO; even then you have to read the label. Gosh, I’m tired already; but believe me, it’s necessary if you want to live a beautifully rich healthy life.

Beauty is having the healthy strength to care. If you are unhealthy it’s easy to say, ‘Oh well, I’m over the hill and who cares. I don’t care because I don’t have the strength’. So why not choose to be healthy? With that mindset, you will be healthy and beautiful. Beautiful! Instead, your mindset will be, ‘I’m strong, healthy and I care; it matters’. This is the difference between choosing toxins or choosing to be healthy. Which will you choose?

ESSENTIAL OILS

Let me give you, even more, insight. In 1992, Bruce Tainio of Tainio Technology, an independent division of Eastern University in Cheny, Washington built the first frequency monitor in the world. Tainio has determined that the average frequency of the human body during the daytime is 62-68 Hz. A healthy body frequency is in the range of 62-72 Hz. When the frequency drops, the immune system is compromised. If the frequency drops to 58 Hz cold and flu symptoms appear; at 55 Hz diseases like Candida take hold; at 52Hz Epstein Bar; and at 42 Hz Cancer.

Fascinating isn’t it.

According to Dr. Royal R. Rife, every disease has a frequency. He found that certain frequencies can prevent the development of disease and that others would destroy disease. Substances with higher frequency will destroy diseases of a lower frequency. The study of frequencies raises important questions concerning the frequencies of substances we eat, breathe, and absorb through our largest organ, our skin. Many pollutants lower healthy frequency. Processed/canned foods have a frequency of zero. Wow! Think about that. Fresh produce has up to 15 Hz, dry herbs from 12 to 22 Hz, and fresh herbs from 20 to 27 Hz.

Toxins are lowering our healthy frequency. It’s as simple as that. But there is hope. Essential Oils start at a frequency of 52 Hz and go as high as 320 Hz. These frequency levels are much higher than fresh herbs, and according to Dr. Royal R. Rife, these higher frequencies prevent and destroy disease.

Still want to use toxic over-the-counter personal care products and eat toxic foods? Now do you see how exposure to them causes premature aging and a host of health issues?

I’m 61 at the time of this writing and I’m proof that Organic Non-GMO foods and Organic Therapeutic Essential Oils can and does reverse the aging process. I am strong; I am healthy; I am beautiful.

 

Every Season Can Affect The Condition & Appearance of The Skin & Can Be Corrected With Botox

download (5)The weather has a huge effect on the health of our skin. When it’s too hot or dry outside, our skin lets us know, and the sun isn’t the only thing that can cause damage, the cold, rain and wind plays its part as well. Skin is the largest organ the body has, and it’s extremely vulnerable to external elements like heat, cold and moisture. The skin is the outer layer that we expose to the world every day, and we all want to keep it looking as nice and healthy as we possibly can. With each new season, there comes new skin concerns.

Spring

Legs and other body parts have probably been covered up throughout the cold winter months and ignored, but come springtime when the days start to become warmer, it’s time to think about shaving and waxing again! Make sure you prepare the skin before you start removing any hair, so that you don’t get any razor burns, rashes or irritations. In spring, however weak the sunshine, sun exposure can still cause sunburn which increases the risk of premature skin ageing and skin cancer, so always apply sun cream.

Summer

We all hope for a nice hot summer, but it brings problems that we should become aware of. Summer is the time for outdoor activities, and as we enjoy barbecues, picnics and visits to the beach, most of the time we are spending this time outside in the sun. Over-exposure to the sun can lead to sunburn but it can also cause facial damage, such as fine lines, wrinkles and uneven skin pigmentation. If you don’t wear sunglasses you will find yourself squinting in the sunshine, causing unwanted wrinkles around the eyes! The body tends to get dehydrated during the summer and this shows up on the skin, so drinking plenty of fluids is a must. Some skin conditions such as rosacea can also be worsened by sun exposure, however, some sunlight is good for acne. To protect your skin from the sun, you should always use a high factor sun cream.

Autumn

When the summer is over and the cold, wet, windy, Autumnal weather arrives, it’s not only unpleasant, it can also be harmful to the skin, leaving it feeling drier, tighter and dull. The hands and face get exposed to the cold and wind the most, therefore, taking good care of these body parts is essential. Moisturiser applied to the skin twice a day is advisable and wearing gloves when out and about will protect them from drying out. Get into the habit of putting body lotion over the entire body straight after a shower and this will act as a barrier and keep the moisture in your skin.

Winter

Winter is one of the worst times for the skin, with icy cold temperatures, low humidity and cold wind wreaking havoc on the face and body. In winter, there are freezing temperatures outside and the central heating turned up inside, extremes leading to chapped lips, sore red patches and flaky skin becoming a daily occurrence. The winter months bring harsh, cold winds that irritate the delicate skin on our face and hands, stripping the skin of natural oils. Exfoliate regularly as a buildup of dead skin can cause dull lifeless skin, so it’s important to exfoliate at least once a week to rejuvenate and show fresh new skin. It’s important to keep the skin hydrated, so after exfoliating, apply a moisturiser, making sure you apply morning and night. Skin conditions like eczema and rosacea can flare up in colder weather.

Squinting in the sunshine and scrunching up the face against the blustery wind and rain, can cause the unwanted appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Women and men can both benefit from botox treatments, helping to keep the wrinkles at bay!

Cosmetic procedures such as botox, dermal fillers and other face enhancement treatments can help you say goodbye to those wrinkles. Botox has been around for many years and works by relaxing muscles in the face, which when they contract can cause facial lines. Botox corrects the fine lines, crows feet around the eyes, frown lines on the forehead and the horizontal lines that appear when you look up.

Do you need help choosing a cosmetic procedure? We provide an extensive range of cosmetic procedures for the face and body to help create a younger, slimmer, more youthful looking you!

We have been involved in the cosmetic industry for over 10 years.

3 Reasons to Use a Wrinkle Reduction Cream

download (4)As we age, a common quest seems to be how to add years to our life and life to those years – one without the other would be pretty much a waste of time. The good news is that there’s plenty of help available in our quest. Barring accidents and severe medical conditions, the 5Fs – the right Food, Fitness, Friendships, Future, and Finances – provide one source of help.

  • Caloric reduction is acknowledged as a sure way to live longer. So, the correct food that provides the fuel enabling us to live in the way we choose is essential.
  • Regular exercise (fitness) is also considered important in the longevity, life-quality stakes.
  • The necessity to make and maintain friendships is essential. Friendships, we’re told, can help to add up to seven years to our life – and lower blood pressure.
  • A future provides a reason to get out of bed each day. It’s important that we have something to look forward to whatever that ‘something’ is.
  • Finances comes down to working out what we’ll need for life’s journey. And there are many available resources to help figure out this amount.

DIET acronyms can be used to provide a helpful reminder – DO I EAT THAT? DO I EXERCISE TODAY? DO I ENCOURAGE THEM? DO I ENVISAGE THIS? DO I EARMARK THESE?

As an active participant in the ageing process, and communicating with others in the same boat, two additional Fs have been uncovered – the need for FUN and FAITH.

    • Until now, I had always included fun as part of friendships but I have come to the realisation that fun is so important and needs to be considered separately. Regular doses of fun are an essential ingredient of a life well lived: laughter, usually from enjoying and sharing a joke, is a great tonic. Your DIET acronym could be, DO I ENSURE THRILL?

 

  • Faith requires belief in something, be it a deity or whatever. Included also are the need for a positive attitude – toward self, others, and life’s situations such as ageing – and realising the multiple benefits that can be derived from regular meditation. We’re told that people with a positive attitudes are likely to live up to 7 years longer than the less-positive brigade, and daily meditation has much to recommend it. YourDIET acronym could be, DO I EXPLORE THIS?

So the 5Fs have become the 7FsFood, Fitness, Friendships, Future, Finances, Fun, Faith. Who would have thought that living longer, better was so straightforward?
