Years to your Life, Life to your Years

Written by

The search for the Fountain of Youth has been going on throughout history, literature and mythology. People have fallen prey to charlatans and con men in the quest for rejuvenation. Even though we are aware of this, there is something in us that yearns to be younger, feel younger and look younger. We are often willing to spend thousands of dollars in this quest, but results usually are only temporary and only skin deep. What if there was a way to rejuvenate your body from the inside out.

I want to share with you the most scientific ways I am aware of to “ add years to your life and life to your years”. Rejuvenation starts from within, at the cellular level.

“Years to your life, life to your years” is a favorite quote of Dr. Saul Pressman of Canada one of the gurus of the oxygen spa movement. He coined the phrase because of the results he has seen. What does he say, can add years to your life and life to your years? The answer is, “an oxygen spa”. Most of you have probably never heard of an oxygen spa, so let me tell you the theory, behind why it works.

Dr. Otto Warburg, a two time Nobel Prize Winner in medicine, made this statement, which he proved scientifically to be true, “The fundamental cause of all degenerative diseases is hypoxia (oxygen starvation at the cellular level). Cancer and other degenerative diseases cannot survive in an oxygen rich environment”. His discoveries regarding cancer were the reason why he won the Nobel Prize for medicine. There are many others saying similar things about oxygen such as Steven Levine, Ph.D., co-author of "Antioxidant Adaptation: Its Role in Free Radical Biochemistry" states, “We can look at oxygen deficiency or oxygen starvation as the single greatest cause of all disease.” Kurt W. Donsbach, D.C., N.D., Ph.D. said "The greater the oxygen concentration in the bloodstream, the greater the feeling of vitality and the stronger the body's barrier to degenerative diseases."

When you begin to read the scientific studies by highly respected men such as Warburg regarding oxygen, it changes your perspective on disease and aging. Here is a man that proved cancer and many degenerative diseases are caused by the lack of oxygen at the cellular level. If you have enough oxygen at the cellular level and each cell can breathe, then cancer will not grow. For cancer and other degenerative diseases grow because of the fermentation process, which starts because the cell cannot breathe. Warburg went on to say that you need to remove the toxins or chemicals that hinder cell respiration. Many cells have access to oxygen, but the cellular debris, chemicals or toxins, known as carcinogens, keep the cell from breathing. Therefore, there needs to be detoxification cleansing at the cellular level as well as the exposure of oxygen to the cells. This is why you should only use products that are all natural and purely botanical if possible. Many products contain animal by-products, mineral oils, chemicals, and toxins, which can contaminate the body at the cellular level, and can eventually contribute to many diseases, including premature aging and cancer.

Degenerative diseases, which we all accept as a part of aging, can be greatly reduced if we are able to detoxify or cleanse the body at the cellular level and then give the body the needed oxygen. Remember oxygen is the number one nutrient the body needs. You can only live a few minutes without oxygen.

In naturopathic medicine there are two pillars of health and long life. One is the nutritional side, giving the body everything it needs to build and rebuild itself. The other is the cleansing or detoxification side. Warburg’s work unwittingly confirmed these principles of naturopathic medicine that had been taught for hundreds of years.

Now let’s get back to the oxygen spa. An oxygen spa is a steam sauna where oxygen is added to the steam sauna. The body receives the oxygen transdermally through the skin. Dr. Kellogg originally started this concept in the late 1800s. The head is out of the steam sauna in modern oxygen spas or oxygen saunas. The mouth and nose aren’t breathing the oxygen. The oxygen passes into the body through the pores of the skin, thereby causing more cells of the body to be exposed to the oxygen. The steam sauna causes the body to sweat, the sweat detoxifies the skin, making it healthier and you get more oxygen to the skin and indirectly to other parts of the body.

The ancient Romans understood the concept of steam saunas and the ability to create sweat or artificially induce fever to fight sickness and disease. The Norwegians, Native American Indians, and many others have used steam sauna therapy for thousands of years. Why did they use steam saunas? For thousands of years steam sauna sweat therapy has been believed to be both a powerful healing and rejuvenative experience. Steam therapy has been widely reported to do the following things according to The International Steam Therapy Association:

· Dramatically increase oxygenation of the tissues and cells

· Increase the white blood cell count

· Increase circulation

· Deliver oxygen and nutrients within the body

· Burn 400-600 calories per session

· Increase tumor necrosis factor by up to 500 times

· Purge accumulated toxins (pesticides, PCBs, drug residues, acidic wastes, etc)

· Stimulate the immune system

· Kill bacteria and viruses

· Relax and loosen sore muscles

Sweat is reported to contain more toxins than urine! This is why skin is often referred to as the third kidney. So anything you put on the skin needs to be all natural and non-chemical if possible. For some things we put on our skin can clog the pores of the skin and we lose the ability of our third kidney to detoxify. This is why the condition of the skin can be a predictor of disease. When skin is healthy, naturally from within, often this is indicative of a healthy body. When you use natural means, such as oxygen, steam therapy, proper nutrition, and diet to create healthy skin it affects the entire body.

    According to the American Cancer Society (ACS), it is estimated that in 2009 there were 192,370 new cases of invasive breast cancer diagnosed among women, and approximately 1,910 new cases in men. For the many men and women who have been, and will be diagnosed this year, the battle to get through treatment and surgery is only the beginning of the journey to survive. Although the feeling of survival is unsurpassed, the physical scars at times may leave some survivors anxious with their new appearance. Ruth Swissa has taken her passion and artistic expertise in the permanent makeup industry to provide areola pigmentation for breast cancer patients post reconstruction to help renew self-confidence and boost self-esteem.

    "Many of my patients have said that waking up every morning, and looking in the mirror is a constant reminder of their battle, which although comes with a sense of pride, it also at times causes insecurities because they don't feel like themselves," says Swissa.

    Micropigmentation is an alternative method of creating a realistic nipple and areola after a mastectomy, to achieve a more symmetrical shape and even coloring using artistic light and shade effects. Swissa works closely with her patients in order to achieve the desired coloring and size to create a natural looking effect. This procedure takes less than an hour and is usually painless.

    Ruth uses a customized medical tattooing technique for applying permanent makeup for areola pigmentation. This unique method proves to be more exact, very gentle, and less invasive than traditional cosmetic tattooing. The results look more natural and subtle in appearance.

    Five Ways to Find Safe and Natural Relief from Osteoarthritis

    by Deirdre Shevlin Bell

    The search for safe and effective relief from osteoarthritis (OA), a condition that occurs when joint cartilage wears down over time, can feel like an uphill battle. Certain natural remedies can bring lasting relief from OA according to the Arthritis Research Council (ARC) study and other experts. That is good news, since the pain, stiffness, and loss of flexibility from arthritis makes it the nation's most common cause of disability.

    One massage, and call me in the morning
    Spa-lovers with osteoarthritis will be pleased to learn that all those massages that leave you feeling loose and limber are doing more than just helping you relax. According to a 2006 study published in the Archives of Internal Medicine, Swedish massage improves flexibility, decreases pain, and increases range of motion in individuals with osteoarthritis of the knee.

    Low-impact exercise
    "When people start to hurt, they tend to cut back on exercise," notes Michele Olson, Ph.D., professor of exercise physiology at Auburn University Montgomery and Fellow of the American College of Sports Medicine. But that is a mistake, as inactivity can make pain and stiffness even worse. Olson recommends Pilates and swimming or doing aqua-aerobics, but she emphasizes the importance of choosing gentle, weight-bearing exercise. Michael Murray, N.D. suggests that a person should find something they love, and find a way to continue doing it: If walking on concrete sidewalks is too hard on the joints, walk on the golf course.

    Spice rub
    Using a gel containing capsaicin, the active ingredient in chili, is very effective at providing temporary relief from osteoarthritis pain. Studies have found that capsaicin can deplete the substance that acts to transmit pain signals from nerve endings to the brain and cause inflammation in the joints.

    Healing herbs
    An ARC study evaluated several herbs and herbal combinations and found that one stood above the rest. Phytodolor, a branded combination of three herbs – aspen (Populus tremula), common ash bark (Franxinus excelsior), and golden rob herb (Solidago vigaurea) effectively manages the pain and inflammation associated with OA. Some studies have shown that aspen contains a substance that when ingested inhibits the production of certain prostaglandins in the nerves, resulting in pain relief. Common ash bark and golden rob herb also have pain-relieving properties, and common ash bark is an antioxidant – meaning it may reduce oxidative damage in the joint. The combination of the three herbs has been shown in animal studies to reduce inflammation. No major adverse effects have been reported, though some people do experience diarrhea, stomach upset, or skin reactions.

    The SAMe Game
    First discovered in 1952 and widely investigated for its usefulness in treating depression, S-adenosylmethionine (SAMe) is now showing promise as a treatment for OA. SAMe is a chemical compound that occurs naturally in the body, where it contributes to the synthesis of hormones and neurotransmitters. Studies suggest that when taken as a supplement, SAMe reduces pain and also stimulates the synthesis of collagen and proteoglycans, which are the major components of joint cartilage. Adverse effects are infrequent and mild, but can include nausea, restlessness, headache, dry mouth, and stomach upset. People with depression should consult with a healthcare provider before taking SAMe, as some incidences of anxiety and mania have been reported.

    Pomegranate the Ancient Red Goddess!

    by Natalie Pergar

    Cranberr facial mask

    Known not only as part of the elite group of super fruits, the all mighty pomegranate, English word comes from the Latin words for apple; "pomum" (apple) and "granatus" (seeded), has been dated as far back as 1,000 BC and was introduced to North America by Spanish settlers in 1769. This red beauty represents global symbolism and history ranging from righteousness, prosperity, and fertility.

    With over 760 varieties of pomegranate it is one of the oldest known medicines to man. Ancient Greek healers would use pomegranate juice to manage health problems similar to arthritis, circulation problems, digestive disorders, and infections. And to add to the wonders of the pomegranate, the fruit was also involved in ancient beauty concoctions. Today with our growing beauty culture and desire to turn back the clock, we find ourselves revisiting what our ancient friends already knew with the help of modern science and research.

    Pomegranates are packed with phytonutrients, vitamin B, and an abundance of vitamin C. They contain red arils, tiny edible seeds that are loaded with juice and provide valuable fiber. They are delicious and fantastic to eat - though I would not recommend eating the white membrane that surrounds the arils as it is quite bitter and the consensus is that it is not recommended. And for those of us that count calories, a 1/2 cup of raw pomegranate has 80 calories and 0 grams of fat!

    According to the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR), pomegranate fruit extract contains several polyphenols and anthocyanidins (pigment that gives certain fruits their dark red colors). Its antioxidant activity is higher than that of red wine and green tea and research suggests that pomegranate extract may have significant clinical benefits in decreasing risk for skin cancer.

    By taking pomegranate extract capsules, one could reduce or reverse the signs of aging by promoting cell turnover and creating new, healthy skin. But that is not all! Evidence shows that including it in your skin care regime can provide wonderful results too. Rich in ellagic acid to manage free radicals, pomegranate oil contains punicic acid, an omega 5 conjugated fatty acid effective in aiding cell regeneration and proliferation. Pomegranate also carries beneficial phytoestrogen and a rare plant-based source of conjugated linoleic acids (CLA), an anti-carcinogen.

    So I salute you, oh red goddess of history. Bring me health and wellness with all your super fruit power!

    Pomegranate, Almond Oil, and Honey Mask


    ½ pomegranate
    2 tsp almond oil
    ½ tbsp organic honey

    Warm up the honey until it becomes liquid (not too hot!) by putting it in a small glass or metal bowl which is immersed in hot water. Peel the pomegranate half, cut the fruit in pieces, and put these in a bowl or food processor. Add the honey and almond oil. Blend it all into a smooth and uniform paste. Spread this gently and equally with your fingertips on your clean face and neck: keep the eye area clear. Now lie down, relax, and leave the mask on for 20 minutes. Then, wash it off with lukewarm water and end with a splash of cold water; pat your skin dry with a clean towel. Finally, apply a moisturizer, this way you "seal" your skin to keep the water inside. (For all skin types). *This fruit mask recipe peels your skin and we do not recommend using it on acne skin.

    Pomegranate Oat Bran Scrub

    2 ounces pomegranate juice
    2 ounces orange juice
    2 tbsp honey
    2 tbsp sea salt
    3 to 4 ounces oat bran

    1. In a container large enough to hold two cups, combine pomegranate and orange juices. To this add the honey and mix together well.
    2. Now add sea salt and oat bran. Mix together and allow the oat bran to soak up the liquids, about 10 to 20 minutes.
    3. Make sure to apply to a clean face. Probably the easiest way is to apply in the shower after you clean your face and allow it to set while you do other things. The steam from the shower helps allow the ingredients to penetrate your skin. Then, gently scrub off as you shower.
