Dear Friends,here at Healthy Healing we are receiving a lot of questions about how to deal with skin problems. Skin problems like acne, rosacea, eczema and psoriasis are magnified in heat. Unfortunately, conventional treatments have not managed skin conditions very well at all. Most exacerbate symptoms or simply do not help.

Cool Down Skin

Soft smooth skin depends adequate EFA’s in the diet. Just eating fish or seafood 2 – 3 times a week noticeably reduces skin dryness or wrinkling, and can help ease psoriasis and eczema symptoms.

Go gluten-free. Some research and dramatic case reports showing improvement in psoriasis with the adoption of a gluten-free diet. Good replacements: rice (red, brown, wild, risotto), quinoa, amaranth and corn.

Avoid excess protein from red meat. It increases inflammation and sets up an acidic body environment, disastrous for good skin. Include proteolytic enzymes like Dr. Enzyme with Protease & Bromelain to improve protein metabolism. Take 1-2 caps 3 times daily between meals for the best results. (Also helps scarring.)

Herbal alteratives (blood cleansers) like burdock, sarsaparilla and red clover help eliminate toxins that show up as poor skin texture or skin allergies. Herbs like white tea and turmeric extract smooth skin texture and reduce redness. Take 2 caps daily as needed to reduce redness and soothe your skin.

Take extra care of your skin and of course use common sense about sun exposure. We all know powerful UV rays from the sun can seriously damage your skin. Double your protection if you have light-colored eyes and hair, and fair or freckled skin. Always keep a high quality aloe vera gel on hand for sunburn relief.

The Best Anti-Aging Foods

In this post, I'm going to talk about something that people ask me about almost every day: aging, and what we can do about it. While it's obviously true that nothing can literally "turn back the clock", it's been confirmed by hundreds of studies that we can improve both the length and quality of our lives through wise use of nutrition. A nutrition rich diet is the center piece of a long, vibrant life. Your diet must become even more nourishing and even higher in antioxidants as the years pass. A good diet improves health, enhances energy, keeps memory and thinking sharp, staves off disease, and contributes to a youthful appearance.

  • Fresh fruits and vegetables provide critical vitamins, minerals, fiber and enzymes. Enzyme-rich fruits and vegetables are the essential link to high stamina levels. Organically grown foods insure higher nutrient content and avoid toxic sprays.

  • Seaweeds are the ocean's superfoods, rich in vitamins, minerals (especially iodine), trace minerals, chlorophyll, enzymes and fiber. By regulating thyroid function, they promote higher energy levels and increased metabolism for faster weight loss after 40. Include them in soups, healthy sandwiches or salads. If you don't like the taste of seaweeds, try them in capsules like Ocean Minerals caps.

  • Whole grains, nuts, seeds and beans offer plant source protein, fiber, vitamin E and essential fatty acids. Sprouted seeds, grains, and legumes are some of the healthiest foods you can eat. They are living nutrients that go directly to your cells.

  • Cultured foods contain friendly digestive flora. Yogurt tops the list, but kefir, raw sauerkraut, miso, tamari, tofu, tempeh, even a glass of wine at the evening meal also promote better nutrient assimilation.

  • Plenty of pure water every day keeps your body hydrated. Water keeps the body mositurized and hydrated from the inside out. Water helps keep the skin supple and prevents premature wrinkling.

  • Healthy, unsaturated fats and oils keep your body at its best. Olive oil, evening primrose and flax seed are good options. Also, include seafoods, greens, avocado and cantaloupe in your regular diet.

  • Green superfoods like alfalfa, chlorella, spirulina, barley and wheat grass are potent antioxidants and alkalizers. Try Energy Green Renewal drink mix for long term health.
