Who wants to grow old? No doubt you are as old as you feel, but you can never beat time. It is that one thing, which you can’t run away from. No matter how far you try to go from it, you can never win the race against time. Yet, I don’t advice you to surrender!
As you grow older, or get into the phase of growing older post 40, the whiplashes of time are visible on your face. This is where anti-aging creams and pills come into the picture. If you take my advice, I always suggest people to use pills, rather than using creams.
Following are the top five reasons to use such pills:

Nails are a protective horn at the end of our most sensitive extremitives: fingers and
Toes. They can often become injured from accidents or crushing weight such as
Heavy walking or running. They can also become infected from bacterial or fungal
Infections as well as separated from the nail bed or chipped from harsh weather.
The nails are often a reflection of our overall health or nutritional deficiencies. Some
Ways to listen to what your nails are trying to tell you are:
O Iron / Protein / Calcium Deficiency = brittle, concave, ridged, white half moons
O Too much salt = external fibrous growths
O Nervousness / hyper thyroid = separation of the nail bed
O Respiratory Difficulties = bluish discoloration
O Bronchial Difficulties = yellowish discoloration
O Anemia = pale nail beds
O Vitamin A Deficiency = peeling nails
O Zinc Deficiency = poor nail growth
O Vegetable Quality Oils Deficiency = thin, brittle nails
O Consumption Extremes in Diet (especially meats and refined foods) = washboard
What we eat actually does affect the appearance of these external parts of our
Bodies. Start paying attention to your hands (and feet!) And feeding your body right.
The food we put in the body affects the health of our nails, but that does not mean to
Completely ignore the food we put ON the body either. Contrary to many fabulously
Smart marketing campaigns you do not need to spend a lot of money on chemically
Enhanced products to experience strength and beauty on your outside.
Natural oils are an excellent way to treat the external condition of the finger and
Toenails. Different oils affect the body differently. A great way to determine what oil
Would suit your body best is to examine your heritage and connect to the
Predominant oil in that part of the world.
Once you have determined which is best for your particular body's need use some
Time in the evening to take a "nail bath" (remember … the skin is our most
Absorbent organ …)
1. Allow your nails to soak in a small bowl of oil or gently rub the oil into the nails
2. Cover with cotton gloves, cotton socks
Top Three Oils to Treat Your Nails Right
1. Coconut Oil: one of the few significant plant sources of lauric acid. This medium
Chain faty acid, which is also found in human milk, enhancements brain function and the
2. Palm Kernel: when unrefined, this high saturation oil is the one of the most stable
Of oils providing strength and ultimate saturation to the skin.
3. Olive Oil: the most stable vegetable oil, high in vitamin E, provides support to the
Liver and gallbladder (yes, no matter how you take it into the body).
Now, take a minute and think about how those chemically enhanced skin and nail
Products are affecting your body …

When I learned I had breast cancer, I decided that I needed to find out as much as I could about how my diet might impact my health. I absorbed everything I would get my hands on that discussed the importance of nutrition in regaining health and preventing a recurrence of cancer. Shortly after I learned I had cancer, I also found out that I am allergic to dairy and eggs. I needed to make changes to my lifestyle – fast.
The first thing to go was dairy. All of the years that I was consuming massive amounts of cheese was taking a toll on my health. Almost immediately upon giving it up, the majority of my migraine headaches disappeared. Another astonishing revelation was when, just as quickly, I no longer needed the Afrin nasal spray I had come to depend on to clear my sinuses for 35 years! I couldn’t leave the house without it. Now my need for it had disappeared. I had no idea that all of these issues were being caused by dairy.
Suddenly it was obvious, but for years I went along consuming dairy and suffering side effects without ever putting the two together. To improve my health on all counts, I realized that I needed to get back to basic, simple foods. No more processed junk foods, no more saturated fats, and no more refined white flours and sugars. So, along with dairy, I cut them out of my life. I now eat a mostly plant-based diet that is rich in nutrients and full of vitamins.
I buy organic when possible to avoid the pesticide and herbicide residues that are so prevalent in conventionally grown produce. I cook my meals from scratch. No more cans, packages or boxes (with a few exceptions). I now use my creativity and Google savvy to put together healthy meal ideas that work for my family. I noticed an immediate improvement to my health. I not only started to lose weight, and ultimately slowly and steadily lost 50 pounds, but I started to feel like my younger self again. More energetic, less achy, clearer skin.
I found that by merging elements from a vegan diet and a raw food lifestyle I could satisfy my family’s needs of eating healthy. The elements that I incorporated from the raw food diet is not only eating more vegetables in their raw state, but also eating foods that are “pure”. In other words, foods that are not processed or otherwise adulterated. They don’t contain chemicals or additives as they are mostly freshly made and consumed. However, it was not feasible to prepare only non-cooked foods 100% or the time. Although, I do try to eat at least 50% raw each day.
I needed to include hot healthy foods into my diet as well. In the northeast the winters are cold and it is just not possible for me to cut out all warm food. As far as veganism, I have eliminated all animal …
