Want Healthy Skin? Start With Your Gut

Dermatologist Whitney Bowe, MD has done research on the connection between the gut and skin microbiomes (living bacteria) and there is a connection between your diet, lifestyle and the health of your skin.  The following are some tips and products to help you have more healthy skin by paying attention to your gut.

  1. Skip on the Processed Foods. According to Dr. Bowe, processed foods can slow down your digestion and that causes an overgrowth of unhealthy bacteria which could lead to “leaky gut.” Leaky gut creates inflammation in the kin and can show up as acne, eczema, and wrinkles.
  2. Eat Fermented Things such as

Sauerkraut

 

 

 

 

 

 

Kimchi

 

 

 

 

Kombucha

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Fermented foods helps maintain the good bacteria and helps your body balance the pH which controls inflammation, all important for healthy skin.

3. Choose Your Dairy Carefully

Milk, especially skim milk can cause inflammation in the skin to the tune of acne and redness because of the proteins casein and whey. Consider almond milk or coconut milk instead. Yogurt (See my other blog post “Is Yogurt Healthy For You?“) and many kinds of cheese are fermented which help with the effects of dairy. (Don’t get the processed cheeses that have all the chemicals and preservatives).

4. Exercise

Exercise can help reverse early signs of aging. Exercise boosts blood flow, which given time can positively affect the network of blood vessels that support our skin, which can lead to a healthier look (and not only a healthier look, but you is healthier too).

5. Get Enough Sleep

You need at least seven hours of sleep. Less and you could be triggering the stress hormone cortisol which is linked to collagen breakdown and premature aging (plus fat).

6. The Right Kind of Probiotic Supplements

Look for those with at least 10 billion CFU that contain Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium. Both your gut and your skin will benefit from both.

7. Take Care of Your Skin

Avoid harsh soaps and aggressive scrubs. Use a gentle cleanser and limit exfoliation to just once or twice a week. (You can use a dry brush all over your body before taking a shower to help exfoliate dead skin).  

 

 

 

Avoid intense heat. It can try out skin which creates a breeding ground for certain bad bacteria. Always use a moisturizer after cleansing, and forget the heating mask and devices if your skin is prone to dryness.

Feeling Down? High Quality Essential Oils For Emotions

 

 

 

 

 

 

YL Essential Oils offers a package for emotional well being called the Feelings Kit.

There are several ways you can use these oils for emotions. You or someone you love deserve to feel emotionally healthy. With different aspects of health, there is a number of reasons why emotions can drop. A change in hormones, eating habits, emotionally bad news delivered to you or even simply a hard day at the office.

*Note essential oils and this blog post is not meant to diagnose, treat or care medical conditions. Please consult a Doctor. This blog post is for educational purposes only. See Disclosure below.

There are times where we just need to feel better emotionally. After considering the above possible causes for feeling down, make the necessary changes. For example, if your diet is filled with processed food consistently, your whole body will be affected, not excluding your emotions.

Consider starting out with YL’s Feelings kit for healthy emotional support.

You can use these oils aromatically by either a cold diffuser (Also offered by YL) or you could simply put a drop of oil in your hands, rub them together and cup your hands over your nose and mouth and inhale being careful not to get any in your eyes. You could also use these oils topically to rub a little under your nose, and on any heat points on your body such as your neck and your wrists. Sometimes I’ll use these oils and put a few drops on a cotton ball, and stick the cotton ball in the fan we have in our room and living room.

Also in YL’s Vitality line of oils, so oils can be put in a gel capsule and taken internally. (Follow the directions labeled on the bottle).

Which Tuna Should You Eat to Reduce Toxic Mercury That Goes Into Your Body?

It’s simply amazing and sometimes overwhelming the foods to eat that are healthy and those that are not.
I just learned I’ve been buying and eating the worst tuna there is on the market. I found out it’s the highest in Mercury! Basically, I’m ingesting High levels of Mercury which is highly TOXIC! So if you eat tuna, this is a MUST read.

First I want to say, no you don’t have to give up Tuna. You may have to change the type of tuna you are currently buying (like I did) but you can still enjoy Tuna.

Let’s talk about the dangers of Mercury. This stuff is no joke!

Mercury is especially bad for pregnant women and children.  All tuna has some mercury but some tuna has far less.

(2)Infants in the womb can be exposed to methylmercury when their mothers eat fish and shellfish that contain methylmercury. This exposure can adversely affect unborn infants’ growing brains and nervous systems.  These systems may be more vulnerable to methylmercury than the brains and nervous systems of adults are.

(2)Children exposed to methylmercury while they are in the womb can have impacts to their:
  • cognitive thinking,
  • memory,
  • attention,
  • language,
  • fine motor skills, and
  • visual-spatial skills.

(1)Mercury poisoning via heavily contaminated seafood and fish can harm a person’s fertility as well as threaten their nervous system.

(2) Exposure to methylmercury most commonly occurs when people eat kinds of fish and shellfish that have high levels of methylmercury in their tissues.

Possible symptoms of methylmercury poisoning may include:
  • loss of peripheral vision
  • “pins and needles” feelings, usually in the hands, feet, and around the mouth
  • lack of coordination of movements
  • impairment of speech, hearing, walking
  • muscle weakness

(3)What type of Tuna should you not eat and what type should you eat?

Tuna only looks small in a tin.  In the ocean it’s big.  Very big – you can fit about 5,000 tins of tuna from one Albacore Tuna. (Sometimes labeled “solid white” ), Because of its size, it eats a lot of big fish (which have mercury in them) which means that by the time it’s killed, enormous amounts of other fish’s mercury have accumulated in its own flesh.

So the rule is, the larger the tuna, the more mercury it can have in it.

So instead, look for small tuna. Skipjack and Tongol (labeled “chunk light”) are the smallest.  This smaller size makes such a difference in mercury levels that guidelines suggest that one can eat these tuna 3x as frequently as white Albacore.

Also, it matters if the can has oil or water in it. Choose water-packed tuna rather than oil-packed. When you drain oil-packed tuna, some of its natural omega 3 fatty acids leach into the added oil and go down the sink drain. But since oil and water don’t mix, water-packed tuna won’t lose any of its omega-3s when you drain the water.

If you have any questions, just let me know. In the meantime, please feel free to look around all you like.

Larry King Grills Eric Worre On Network Marketing

Love the custom poster art on the video before you play it.

This was a great interview and very educational as to what Network Marketing is really about (it’s not easy) and why so many new people in Network Marketing fail.

Eric Worre being the master in teaching Network Marketing was the perfect person to interview about this very subject. He was the point on as usual.

Wow, Young Living on TV in the news!

 

 

 

 

 

Click the long link below to be taken to the Young Living interview on TV:

http://go.youngliving.com/dcn/vqiWpI9kG6RM73eOhVOTU8ZrD87yfch_Ji558eNRepIG83hERWjk0HY0385XKb8SOYnvVWI7qUF-dSq4QyEOJB80ZFoonJmejlA442pW5vPx0umwwycPDhcuGmozmkryL6CBfiySCDlr6__ZhdA5h6xGRg4VfiAuYv0-pFe5YMCH9DpwbVDHXPIbY-YTtLAaXzA5ECb72wblA9a3vuUsGsPvSp8jYs1DNkkzr-ZtmG1niupN_b0-ldYEgMF0Jtfk/x0H000063t20kKI078tWJVP

It’s so thrilling to see Young Living Essential Oils in the news on TV! A wonderful interview was done on the Mona, UT farm.

In the interview, she mentioned that it seems more and more people are going to natural products.  I have noticed the same thing this year. Many times when I mention Young Living Essential Oils to someone I just met I am greeted by “Oh yeah, wow, I love Essential Oils and I’ve heard of Young Living.” I also see many mainstream companies offering a more natural product in the market than things that have harmful chemicals in them like they used to. Well, they still have those products at a cheaper price to choose from too, but at least now we are given choices many times, where maybe two years ago, we were not.

Also during the interview, she mentioned that Young Living is creating a lot of jobs. What timing on this, as my son is living in Utah, only about thirty minutes from the Mona Farm, and I was just checking out the Young Living jobs online that are available. There is a large wide variety of jobs available!

I’m proud to be a Young Living member. It’s heartwarming to see the positive impact we are having all over the world in creating jobs, seeing more people join Young Living as members, and having whole families everywhere find a good natural alternative to your whole families needs, from their baby, their children, the parents and grandparents, and even the family pets.

When Will You Retire?

I just got done talking to a friendly 80 year old lady that wanted to give me some retirement advice. She said that I should wait to retire until I can collect the full social security and then to work and pocket the social security and make the bucks. In other words, her idea of big bucks would be me (and herself) is to work and get social security.

While this just might be the way things turn out for me, I will say it’s not my plan and it’s certainly not my idea of “the big bucks.”  Instead of trading time for money exclusively my plan is two fold:

  1. Create residual income through investments.
  2. *Continue to create residual income through my Young Living distributor business, leveraging time by building a team of like minded people that have a vision greater than just getting retirement income from Social Security.
  3. Continue to work a job until my residual incomes exceed my household income two fold consistently for a year.*

Even if you are already retired, you may not be satisfied with your income from social security and are looking for ways to increase your income. A Young Living distributorship may be for you, or it may not be…in either case, I’d say it’s worth to take a look at.

For more information, you can message me at facebook. Or you can email me at DexterDBlack@comcast.net.  Put in the subject line: INTERESTED and I’ll email back some information to take a look at.

Is Sugar Really Bad For You?

Photo by Catherine Heath on Unsplash

Sugar (not counting the stuff found naturally in food) when in excess leads to a higher risk of heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and some cancers according to Kimber Stanhope, Ph.D., R.D., a researcher at the University of California. She says “There’s cardiovascular and type 2 diabetes risk independent of weight gain.” There is good news though. You will not likely ever consume dangerous amounts of sugar from fruits or veggies in solid form as they provide fiber to help your body process the sweet stuff. Fruit juice though, some experts believe they may be just as dangerous as sugar.
