Food for Younger Skin – Age Reversal (A Study)

food for younger skin

 

It is well known how food and diet can have a direct effect on how your skin looks and feels – not only that, but how youthful you look overall.

It is possible to maintain and have youthful looks even at a old age – but you need to have dedication and discipline to do so, and it will also reward you with good health too.

If you haven’t been following our blog posts in the past few years, then you should know we have talked about calorie restriction as a method of controlling the aging process.  In Eastern medicine, it is called dampness control, which means you control the rich foods you eat, such as cakes, chocolates and very densely sugary foods.

People often look for food for younger skin, or foods that will help maintain their skin youthfulness – but this is not as simple to explain – you first must watch your calories as a lifestyle – doing too much restriction will also cause aging, as you do need nutrition in your body (obviously) – but you need good quality dense nutrients rather than empty calorie noodles.

In Eastern Medicine, we know that dampness (eating too much) is a major cause of the speed of aging most people in the modern age go through – so the first step in reducing the aging process is reducing calories and increasing nutrient density.

The second step is looking for foods that will work for reducing dampness – and this is very misunderstood in Chinese Medicine, as not all herbs can do this and you cannot just Google what foods do this – we are fortunate enough to have spoken and interviewed a Daoist Medical Doctor, which happen to knew all too well on the best food you can take to reduce and stop dampness.

 

Looking younger by 10 Years with just 2 Methods

 

Peach Seed: This is one of the few and rarely understood herbs in the Chinese herbal book which few understand. Of course it isn’t a herb, but a seed – but in Chinese herbology, a lot of weird things are inside the herbal books, which are parts of animals, and end up being referred to as herbs.

peach seed and youthful looks

Peach seed can be purchased anywhere online – and it is the inside part (inside the hard shell) that is what you want – it is very bitter to taste, so you would want to take water with it and swallow a teaspoon 2-3 times a day after a meal – this will not only help bowel movement, but also detox the body, prevent cancer, break down cysts, but also give you that beautiful youthful appearance that you are looking for.

Taking a food such as peach seed is not enough – you also need to take care of your body by movement – exercise – on a daily basis – the body is simply not designed to stay still for longer than 20 minutes at a time – yes, those people working those long office jobs, you are aging yourself faster than you need to – but by working out everyday, even a little, can do wonders for your health, as well as your skin and youthful looks.

 

 

Recover from Exhaustion in just one meal

recover from exhuastion foods

 

The fastest way to restore your tiredness using food, is by the legendary (but not so commonly known) as the chicken ginseng and astragalus soup – there are many versions of it, but this specific version is the one that is known for restoring your vitality (you basically feel great after eating), especially if you have been overworking and haven’t been eating the healthiest of foods (nutritionally dense foods) – the coolest thing about it is, its very easy to cook – hard to go wrong in this.

It is a Korean food – so going to this recipe will help you make it in the best way possible – but you need to add one ingredient to make this work more effectively (which the recipe does not talk about) – and it is called Huang Qi, and can be found in asian stores all over the world (and it’s cheap) – more details about this herb located here.

The important ingredients are ginseng (can be in dry form), Jujube berry (2 of them per baby chicken), Huang Qi and the fact that in needs a very low heat, for a long time – you cook it for several hours, even the chicken bone is soft enough to eat!

Obviously there are many types of food out there that can help someone recover from exhaustion – the reason I post about this specific one, as this is as much a medicine as it is a food, and from my experience, it is one of the best foods you can regularly eat.

Treating Hypoglycemia using Natural Methods

low blood sugar

Treating Low blood sugar or otherwise called Hypoglycemia is often misunderstood by many, but can lead to a very dull and difficult life style, even though most cases are not that serious, it really does make a person feel weak and drained all the time. This is due to the fact that the body is converting anything you eat, directly to fat, and hardly using any for energy – so you are starving, even though you are eating.

This condition arises because of abuse of eating too many carbs, sugar and fat – this causes imbalance of insulin. This itself is not diabetes, but can become diabetes if not treated correctly. The good news is that this treatable, and curable – but not the way most websites and natural websites talk about – they usually say to eat carbs regularly – but this does not fix it – only reduces some symptoms – but as soon as eating is restored to normal levels, you start suffering from the same side effects.

The way to treat someone suffering from this, is by going on a strict protein diet for a certain period of time – this means, eating lean meat (beef, white fish, chicken, lamb) combined with spinach – several times a day, in small amounts. Ideally you want to do this for at least 7 days, very strictly – and then adjust slightly so you are better able to handle the diet long term.

I have seen people improve from this, even by eating 95% protein diet – where they add some sauce to the meat, and obviously some meats still have 1% fat in it – but the more severe the condition, the harder it is to do this diet, so mental strength is required when doing this diet – that said, you can see a big difference in just 7 days of doing this diet (on how it affects you and your health).

To summarize here:

– Eat 10 times a day

– lean meats, and some steamed spinach (at least 7 days)

– Drink plenty of water – Make yourself busy, so you do not think of other foods that you are addicted to

– Stopping a sugar addiction (sugar defined as fats, sugar, natural sugar and carbs) is often compared to stopping a drug addiction, so understand that each hour that you do this, you are more powerful and in control of your body and your intentions.

Vegan Vs Meat Eaters – Is there really a right way to eat?

vegainvsmeat

Vegans have started showing up more and more in numbers – it almost seems that people have found a new religion to use as an excuse for an argument or protest – what is the truth behind all this?

Vegan diet is considered a more conscious diet as you eat non-animal products and are meant to be more conscious of the environment and the animals around you – whilst vegan-ism stems from some geniune intention to make the world, and our body a better place to be in – there are some areas you must consider:

– Vegans say that they don’t hurt living things and that is the main reason (at least the few I spoke to) for their diet. This is simply not possible to do if you are alive, you will naturally be hurting and killing life around – even when you take a deep breath, you have just killed billions of life forms in the air.

– New studies have shown plants do have nervous systems, and they can feel pain. So if your a vegan based on the reason you don’t want to hurt living things, then this is heavily flawed.

That said – vegan and a vegerterian diet can be very healthy for some people, and often mind clearing too – but this is not to say meat eating is harmful – in fact, beef protein is the only protein that is most biolavailable to the body, and ideal for recovery and rebuilding strenght (Romans knew this, this is why all gladiators were fed pure beef diet, whilst the rest of Rome was almost vegeterian).

This post is not intended to take sides on vegans or meat eaters – the point to make is that each individual body type is different, and reason for the diet should be more than just saving life of nature (whilstit is important to be conscious of what you are doing), because you simply can’t do that with a diet alone.

There are anemic patients that I have seen, who badly need to eat beef, and it would save their life – but they try to get their protein from beans and think this is the same (and they never recover!) – all they need is 1-6 months protein diet on beef protein, and this restores their blood count very fast.

There are some people who have eaten a lot of deep fried junk in their lifes, and are more than healthy in blood count levels – they could do with a vegeterian diet – as this diet will clear their mind, prevent foggy thinking, make them more energetic and less aggressive and even detox their system from a lot of junk – this does not mean its a permanent lifestyle – life is constantly changing, and so are your body’s nutritional requirements – there is no right way – both are right depending on the time and place.
