Vaccines

I shared this on Facebook and really believe everyone should be aware of what is going on in our Congress. Listen to this one closely. It is so true. There are some of you who would not and do not want to believe it. But as the old saying goes – “BUYERS BEWARE’. It is not only the CHOICE  you make for your children, but also for yourself, especially if you are a senior, as I am. I refuse to be vaccinated, unlike many of my friends and associates. However, who gets the FLU every year? MY FRIENDS AND ASSOCIATES WHO HAVE BEEN VACCINATED. There are ingredients in all vaccines they don’t want you to know about, and they can, will eventually, and do kill people. Two of them are Mercury and Aluminum. These are 2 highly toxic metals. They are the underlying cause of many diseases. Do your research and find out for yourself. I never get vaccinated and rarely get sick, accept for maybe a runny nose, which I nip in the bud with NATURAL SUPPLEMENTATION, because that runny nose is the result of my exposure to Environmental Toxins.

It is mandatory today, that a child be vaccinated in order to register for school, and what do I see. After the first week of school, a majority of the students get almost deathly sick. They go home and it spreads through the family, who I am sure have probably also been vaccinated at the same time the child was vaccinated. Is there something wrong with this picture? Would everyone not have gotten sick if they had not been vaccinated?

Big Pharma and Doctors will tell you anything to put dollars in their pockets, even if it is at YOUR EXPENSE. Can you tell I am adamant regarding this subject? But, as I keep saying, IT IS YOUR CHOICE AS TO WHAT YOU WANT TO DO TO YOUR BODY THAT WILL JEOPARDIZE YOUR HEALTH!

This is only a 5 minute Video, but has Vital Information that you all should be aware of.

In my opinion. FLU or any other kind of vaccinations ARE KILLERS. Man is in charge of his own destiny.

GOD BLESS – have FAITH!

Hair

Did  you know that your hair stores the history of your health? It is said this is only true in animals, but I believe differently. Being a cosmetologist (hairdresser), I am bombarded with questions from my clients regarding their particular hair issues. I hope I can enlighten you all on some of the issues encountered.

As my Taber’s Cyclopedic Medical Dictionary defines it, “hair is a thin flexible shaft of cornified cells which develops from a cylindrical invagination of the epidermis, the hair follicle. The shaft consists of three layers of cells: the cuticle or outermost layer; the cortex, forming the main horny portion of the hair; and the medulla, the central axis. The color of your hair is due to pigment in the cortex. Hair in each part of the body have a definite period of growth after which they are shed. In man there is a constant gradual loss and replacement of hair. Hair of the eyebrows last only three to five months; that of the scalp two to five years. Baldness or alopecia results when replacement fails to keep up with hair loss, which may be due to hereditary factors or pathological conditions to include injury from irradiation.” I add, disease – such as heart, thyroid, nerves, etc., prescription medications taken for these diseases, improper hair care, and even though the ladies don’t want to admit it – coloring, perming, and bleaching – which over a long period of time weakens the hair cortex, and can cause hair loss and thinning. I could go on and on.

The concern of most folks, however, is the greying and thinning of the hair. When the hair turns grey the texture of the hair changes from fine, medium fine, to coarse and sometimes even brittle. Dry hair can be caused by many things to include; drug use, over the counter meds, the shampoo you use, sun damage, etc. My research tells me that not getting enough iron and lysine, can cause early hair loss, especially in women. You can get iron from dark leafy green veggies, beans, seeds and grains, and iron supplements. Lysine, is an amino acid that helps the proteins in your hair grow thick and strong. It is important for thick, healthy hair. Your body doesn’t make lysine. It is hard to come by, but you can get it from certain foods to include; mung beans, haddock, pumpkin seeds, salmon, crab, cod, chickpeas, and supplements. I find the supplements to work well provided they come from a reputable supplement company, such as Life Extension.

Grey hair is due mainly to the absence of hair pigment in the cortical layer of the hair. Grey hair is mottled hair – spots of white or whitish yellow scattered about in the hair shaft. Normally, grey hair grows out in this condition from the hair bulb. It does not take place after the hair has grown out. In the majority of cases greying hair is a result of the natural aging process in humans. It can also happen as a result of some serious illness or nerve damage, stress, emotional tension. I had a friend in the hair business who said his hair turned grey when he was a teenager. Premature greying of hair is usually the result of a defect in pigment formation occurring at birth.

Over time hydrogen peroxide builds up in the hair follicles, which leads to what is called oxidative stress. Oxidative stress can be caused by smoking, not getting enough vitamins, breathing bad quality air (mostly in large cities, etc.

The  Scientific community is working to find ways to slow down the greying process induced by oxidative stress. They have come up with an oil called Amaranth. This oil is a vegan, non-GMO, single ingredient oil that contains a powerful antioxidant that reverses oxidative stress.The single ingredient in this oil is called squalene – considered to be a basic component of human skin, which regulates oxygen in cells that need it most.

So what is squalene?  Squalene has been around for centuries  used around the world as an ancient beauty secret. It has been found to help build and balance hormones in the body, like estrogen, testosterone and vitamin D which can reduce thinning hair. Other benefits include: its boosting your skins production of collagen, improving the skin’s natural moisture, metabolizing fat, protecting cellular health, ensuring slow and healthy aging. Research suggests that squalene may lower your risk of cancer, protect your heart as you age. They also say that squalene in Amaranth oil is even better for your hair and skin than olive oil. Where can you purchase Amaranth oil? To my knowledge -Health food stores. It is also found in hair care products. If you take it as a supplement, be sure the oil is pure and is indicated as to whether you can take it internally. Check with your doctor, do your homework. The internet is full of all kinds of information. GOOGLE IT!

After reading all of the above think wellness. Soft skin, and strong, healthy hair are only the beginning.

GOD BLESS!

Wrinkles

Image result for pics of wrinkled facesIt is hard to talk about wrinkles…but it is on everyone’s mind regardless of how old they are. It’s on my mind. It’s on my children’s minds, those under 30 and those over 30.

As you age, your body naturally produces less collagen and elastin, the connective tissues that make your skin firm and supple. The fat underneath your skin also begins to disappear (unless you are overweight). The result, especially on your face…it starts to sag and wrinkle. It  has been said that “your genes, in general, determines when this occurs and how fast it progresses.” I am not so sure about that. Other things such as smoking, too much sun, illness, etc. can speed up the process.

Since your skin is the largest organ of your body, it is a huge target for free radicals – unstable molecules which form as you process oxygen. These free radicals travel throughout the body, damaging cells and causing all sorts of havoc – one being wrinkles. You can’t help producing free radicals, but you can help neutralize them. HOW? Read on.

  • Eat smarter. Certain foods can actually protect your face from wrinkles. Dr. Mark L. Wahlqvist of Monash University in Melbourne, found that foods containing powerful antioxidants can fight wrinkles. The list includes eggs, spinach, asparagus, celery, garlic, onions, nuts, lima beans, olives cherries, grapes, melons, prunes, apples, pears, water, etc. FOODS TO AVOID include: milk, margarine, red meat, soft drinks, butter, ice cream, potatoes, cakes, pastries, etc.
  • Worry less about your wrinkles. Doctors in England say that “if you have wrinkles, you might actually be protected from skin cancer.” They go on to say that, ” ultraviolet rays from the sun destroy the elastic collagen fibers in all types of skin.If you are wrinkled, that means your skin type repairs itself doesn’t replace the collagen. If you have smooth skin, on the other hand, your skin is replacing the damaged collagen.” He further states, that a weakened immune system has trouble fighting off the factors that cause cancer, especially skin cancer.

Today there are many products on the market for use in targeting wrinkled skin. I have tried most of them from collagen creams to sirums of all kinds. My conclusion on these is that if you are young when you start using them, they might slow down the wrinkling, but if you are in your senior years, they do little to remove or even subdue the wrinkles you already have. I do find, however, that when I get a good night’s sleep my face looks less wrinkled in the morning. As the day goes on, and I get tired the wrinkles seem to look as big as caves on my face. I was so concerned about my wrinkles that I asked my doctor what I could do to alleviate the problem. His answer – “wear them as a badge of honor.” He stated that short of plastic surgery, they will never go away. He did not suggest I do plastic surgery, because once you start that routine, you have keep doing it, and keep doing it, and pretty soon you don’t even recognize yourself. Also, many things can go wrong in the process.

In summary, unfortunately, you can’t control the type of skin you have. So it is important to start young in taking steps to protect your skin from not only the sun but, all the other things that can hasten wrinkles. If you must be out in the sun – use a heavy duty sunscreen. I have seen them advertised with a protection factor as high as 103.

Good old fashion Folk remedies suggest you zap your wrinkles with a homemade, scented moisturizer. Choose an essential oil, such as lavender, lilac, or rose, from the health food store. Pick up an atomizer and then follow these directions. (1) Fill the atomizer with 1 cup water. I suggest purified or distilled water. (2) Add 2 or 3 drops of an essential oil. (3) Refrigerate the solution overnight. (4) Simply spray on your skin, then blot your skin with a tissue. I don’t blot. I want the mixture to be absorbed into my skin.

MAY YOUR DAY BE SUNNY AND BRIGHT AND WRINKLELESS!
