The food and skin connection

Long ago I learned that what I ate would directly affect the way
my body felt, functioned and aged.
The exciting part was that my skin was the direct benefactor of eating
a healthy diet loaded with fruits and vegetables, lean proteins, grains, seeds, and healthy oils.
The effect was not just subtle but, dramatic! People often ask me what I do for my skin. My main focus for skin care is paying attention to what I put into my body.

This was how I began my love affair with Salmon...

Truly... anyone who knows me knows how often I eat Salmon. It is one of those foods
that is packed with nutrients that are healthy for my body and ultimately my skin.
Omega3's work wonders!

I just came across a great article on the subject of eating a healthy diet

and how it affects our skin. It is an interview with one of
the pioneers of the skincare/healthy eating connection.
I think it is a snapshot of some of the tops foods
to keep inflammation down in our bodies and boost
the glow of our skin. ...This is good for men too!

Check it out!


P.S. On the salmon front... Be sure to choose Wild Salmon.
Farm raised or Atlantic salmon
are actually low in Omega 3's and may contain other pollutants.

Eating Meat and Food Inc

If you haven't seen this movie yet....
It is a must see for every person that consumes animal products.

I just watched it again and I think I am officially off beef!...
and probably pork and chicken....
I can at least limit my intake and only eat it
at restaurants that order their meat from
farms that make animal welfare a priority.

It is impossible to watch the inhumane
treatment of animals by many large

producers of beef, chicken and pork....and not be affected by the images.
go to:
Food Inc

When you do eat meat...
Make an effort to search out farmers that offer better environments
for the animals and

a more humane way of handling them.
I agree that statement sounds a little oxymoronic,
but we can at least search out farms that are concerned about
animal welfare and not simply mass production of meat.

The movie is on can even watch it on your computer
if you have a netflix account!

Check it out.
Now, I need to call
In and Out burger
and find out where they
get their beef supply.....oh let it be Niman Ranch Farms!

I often wait for inspiration to write a piece on my blog,.....
Looks like I have not been on this site since August!! Wow!

Well inspiration struck last night while I watched Dr. OZ!

Dr. OZ recently did a segment on his show about Glutathione.
Glutathione is an antioxidant that is extremely powerful in keeping our body healthy.
The exciting part is that main stream medicine is starting to acknowledge this and suggest diet ideas as well as supplementation to boast our natural production of Glutathione. Our glutathione levels can be low if we are fighting an illness,
or are under high levels, or persistent levels of stress.

Here is a segment from Dr. OZ explaining Glutathione. Watch part 1 and 2.
Dr OZ segment
It will give you diet and supplement ideas to keep those glutathione levels boosted.
They even discuss IV glutathione.
Yes, I said intravenous ....
Sounds like the last thing you would want to do, right?
Who wants an IV needle in their arm??
Well, I have done this in conjunction with something called a meyers drip to help my immune system when I was starting to get sick. It was prescribed by my Dr. and done in her office.
It works wonders!
