Sexual Activity and Hair Loss

In Chinese medicine, which has its roots in Taoism, it is widely accepted that there is a direct correlation between kidney/adrenal health and the health of the hair.

It has been recorded in both Taoist (Chinese) and Ayurvedic (Indian) medical texts for thousands of years that there is a connection between sexual activity in men and hair loss. It is maintained that excessive emission by men during intercourse or otherwise puts tremendous stress on the kidneys and results in pattern hair loss for those genetically predisposed. [Read more…]

Health Benefits of Sulfur

After calcium and phosphorus, sulfur is the third most abundant mineral in the body. It is concentrated mostly in muscles tissue, skin and bones. A shortage of sulfur contributes to loss of elasticity in connective tissues and cartilage leading to stiff muscles, painful joints, sagging skin and wrinkles.

Sulfur is also needed for insulin production, detoxification on a cellular level and is part of one of the most important anti-oxidants the body produces – glutathione. Glutathione cannot work without sulfur.

Getting enough sulfur in the diet can be challenging, since there is a transition away from traditional foods such as bone broth for soups and stews from organically raised animals. A good alternate source is MSM known for reducing pain and inflammation and is widely used for arthritic conditions.

MSM is 34% sulfur by weight and is in almost all raw foods, especially in leafy green vegetables, raw milk and beer, coffee and port wines.  Due to food storage, transportation, processing, cooking, excessive washing and drying, the amount of available MSM is often reduced are lost. To get the most benefits, the foods must be raw or minimally heated and processed.

With its amazing anti-allergenic and anti-parasitic properties MSM is also a natural, safe histamine inhibitor without the negative side effects of traditional anti-histamines.

Menopause

MenopauseMenopause is a normal event in a women’s life and usually happens between the ages of 45 and 55 years and signals the end of the fertile phase in a women’s life. It is the cessation of ovarian function and the gradual elimination of the menstrual cycle, the transition from potentially reproductive to a non-reproductive state.

This transition is normally not sudden or abrupt and tends to occur over a period of years – it is the consequence of biological [Read more…]

The Secret to Beautiful Skin

hAs skin ages, the rate of skin cell turnover slows down. The result is a dull, lifeless complexion. New skin cells are created in the lower layer, the dermis and over time cells migrate to the surface of the skin. Through the aging process the natural process of skin surface becomes uneven, which gives skin a dry, dull character.

A simple test you can do at home to see if you have surface dry skin cells on your skin is to take a piece of clear tape and apply it to the forehead. Rub it gently and remove. Look at the tape, and if there are little pieces of flaky skin, then you need to exfoliate!

Exfoliation is defined as the removal of surface dry skin cells and is considered one of the most important techniques you can perform on your skin to resolve many skin problems as well as to achieve a radiant and glowing complexion.

Exfoliation involves the removal of the outer layer, the oldest dead skin cells to reveal the newer skin beneath. Credit is given to the ancient Egyptians for the practice to  exfoliate skin with abrasive tapes  made with alabaster, honey and sour milk, and then used finely ground sand to keep the skin beautiful and silky smooth.

Exfoliation is achieved by either mechanical or chemical means and could be as simple as a bath sponge, a pumice stone for foot exfoliation, a natural bristle brush for full body exfoliation or a mud mask or fine scrub for the face.

Cleansing, exfoliating and applying moisturizer are the most important steps to a beautiful, healthy and naturally radiant skin.

Chronic Dehydration

dr-Chronic-De-HydrationMost people think that de-hydration is something that happens to individuals in the desert. But there is a chronic form of de-hydration that can happen over time when the intake of water is inadequate or reduced and more fluids are exiting the body than are being replaced.

Dehydration is a condition when the body does not have enough water and fluids and may contribute to digestive disorders and constipation, fatigue and sluggish metabolism, low blood pressure, disorientation, urinary infection, weight gain and obesity, skin conditions and premature aging to name a few.

Three quarters of the human body is made up of water and requires a rather sophisticated management system. Throughout the day we constantly lose fluids as we breathe, sweat, urinate and through the bowels, which can easily be replaced by adequate water intake.

The first symptoms of dehydration include thirst, darker urine and decreased urine production. In fact, urine color is one of the best indicators of a person’s hydration level, clear urine means you are well hydrated and a darker urine indicates dehydration.

Although dehydration can happen to anyone, some people are at greater risk and severe cases require medical attention. Critical levels of dehydration may be experienced with fever, diarrhea, vomiting or excessive sweating and exposure to hot and humid temperatures and by people with chronic illnesses such as diabetes, the elderly, infants and children and can lead to delirium and unconsciousness.

The average adult requires a minimum of 5 fluid ounces of water daily for every 10 pounds of body weight and should not include sodas/soft-drinks, coffee or tea. Pure, natural water is the best choice.

Reflection of Health

In alternative medicine, good skin is a reflection of a good digestive system. People with skin disorders such as acne, rosacea, and psoriasis often suffer from constipation, diarrhea, candida, mal-absorption and other digestive conditions. 

Possible causes:

Water – One of the main reasons could be not drinking enough water. Water bathes cells and eliminates waste products, preventing constipation.

Fibre – Most people lack fibre in their diets. Fibre could be supplied by eating fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, beans and legumes and whole grains. 

Sluggish circulation – not enough exercise. Inactivity promotes bloating and puffiness, acne, cellulite and loss of muscle tone. An excellent way to start the day and any time during breaks at work is to incorporate some stretch exercises or a short walk.

Excess sugar – Excess sugar is considered to be one of the main causes of premature aging. The more sugar we eat, the more sugar we have entering our bloodstream. Try to gradually reduce your sugar intake.

Good fats – Essential fatty acids are simply fats our body cannot live without. They keep your heart healthy, fight inflammation and conditions such as eczema, acne and dry skin. Good fats are found in flaxseed or walnut oil, cold water fish, salmon and fish oil supplements.

Skin is the bodies largest organ and reflects our overall health, From preventing wrinkles to facial massages, cosmetics and nutrition, the best thing to remember is to eat healthy, avoid junk food, do not smoke, exercise regularly, drink plenty of water and to read the ingredients on all skin care products to avoid harmful chemicals.  Read more…

 

 

Anti-Aging

Aging is a complex process associated with the accumulation of damage, loss of function and increased vulnerability to disease. The goal of all medicine and especially longevity science, is to enable people to be younger for longer. The best way to prevent disease is to have a strong immune system and maintain a healthy lifestyle.

We plan for nearly everything in life and the energy we put in to planning a vacation or celebrating a major event seems to be more important than addressing signs of aging and the idea of prevention. When we get to a stage of not functioning without prescription drugs for memory, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, brittle bones, painful joints, low energy and other chronic conditions, we still ignore the damaging effects of an unhealthy lifestyle and environmental exposure to stress and toxins.

Many recent scientific studies have shown telomeres to be associated with age-related decline and dysfunction. The length of the telomere on each and every cell in our body determines our health and rate of aging. With each replication of our cells these strands get shorter, a process accentuated by environmental, physical and emotional stress. Eventually the telomeres get too short, the cells die and our bodies get older and health declines.

A purified molecule from the Astragalus plant (TA-65) is proven to activate the enzyme telomerase to lengthen short strands of telomeres, restore an aging immune system, increase bone density and improving various bio-markers that usually decline with age.

Even if every disease known to mankind is cured – we will still die from telomere shortening.
