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.

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 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.
