Sunburn creeps up on you

Sunburn can creep up on you whether it’s hot or not. In the cool coastal weather we can get fooled when out in the sun, or even under a cloud layer. We feel cool, but later the sunburn appears. But hot sunny weather can do the same thing. We’re having so much fun in the sun that we forget our skin is getting too much exposure to those burning rays.

Avoid Sunburns

By all means avoid getting sunburned but if you do, there’s new research … Read the rest

Light Up Your Life with Biophoton Power

So, what if you could augment the strength of your light power (biophotons) by embracing brilliant healthy living right now?

(What’s a biophoton? Review

Eat at least 50% of your food in the form of raw, sun-ripened produce


The most obvious source to strengthen your light power comes from raw living food. Plants grow in the sun, an energy source required for photosynthesis. The sun provides the energy for the plant to bind water and carbon dioxide together to form energy for us in the form of glucose.


So raw food contains sun energy, light energy, and … Read the rest

You Emit Light – Biophotons 1

Maybe that song, “You Light Up My Life”, has more truth in it than we ever imagined because your cells emit light. Science calls those light emissions biophotons which are very weak light emissions in biological systems.


Actually every living thing emits biophotons which seem to direct and integrate all biochemical reactions.


Every second over 100,000 pulses of light (biophotons) flow out of your cells.


These biophotons (electromagnetic waves) produce such a small amount of light that we cannot see them with our eyes. However, Professor Alexander G. Gurvich , a medical scientist first discovered them in … Read the rest

Preventing Sunburn Naturally

At the peak of the northern hemisphere summer season we still need to protect our skin from sunburn. And sunscreen isn’t the only answer. In fact it may be detrimental in some ways because we need some sun exposure to the skin for the production of vitamin D.


We shouldn’t be so sun-phobic that we look like pale faces all summer too. Actually people with tans look healthy, probably because they have the immune and other health benefits of good levels of vitamin D.


Slathering on a lot of sunscreen exposes us to the absorption of more chemicals … Read the rest

Is HRT Safe?

Most of us post-menopausal women remember the scare about the effects of estrogen replacement when the Women’s Health Initiative Study (WHI) was abruptly stopped early because the researchers were seeing an increased incidence of breast cancer, heart disease, stroke, and blood clots. With the big scare women dropped their HRT. Then several years later the incidence of hip fractures increased.


So what are we supposed to do? Suffer from hip fractures, hot flashes, dry skin and vagina and more urinary tract infections or take our chance with HRT and risk getting breast cancer, an increase in heart disease, stroke … Read the rest

BHRT – The Prescription

With the results of the hormone testing in hand your doctor is ready to order your BHRT prescription fine tuned to the needs of your body. It can contain one or all of the 3 forms of estrogen, E1, E2, E3 and progesterone and testosterone. Typically estrogen and progesterone can be mixed together in a formulation or can be applied separately. Testosterone usually works best when applied all by itself.


Yes, women may need supplemental testosterone, usually in one-tenth the dose prescribed for men. Testosterone aids sexual desire, helps keep the bones, ligaments and tendons strong and may help … Read the rest

BHRT – the Doctor and Lab Work

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy means your doctor prescribes hormones that are identical in molecular configuration to the hormones your body produces. Therefore they act more precisely and normally to induce the desired reactions in the cells and tissues of your body than the hormones patented as drugs.


Find a Physician Skilled in Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy


First of all you must find a physician or health care provider who is very skilled in evaluating and prescribing Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT). He/she will know how to test your hormone levels and then prescribe for your specific needs. That’s the … Read the rest

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy

Lots of questions come in about hormone replacement therapy (HRT). Is it safe? What kind of HRT should I use? These hot flashes are driving me wild. What can I do about them? What about breast/uterine cancer in relation to HRT?


Let’s start sorting through these questions by differentiating between patented drugs used for hormone replacement therapy and Bioidentical Hormone Replacement. Since natural substances cannot receive a patent, drug companies have to tweak/change the 3 dimensional configuration of a natural substance or produce a synthetic chemical to obtain a patent on their product.


Hormones act on cells by … Read the rest

Anti-Aging Effects of Green Tea

Because green tea activates the longevity genes it falls in the category of things you can do to slow down the aging process. Now that’s an amazing phenomenon.


Are you surprised to learn that you actually have longevity genes? I was really surprised. Researchers discovered that animals live longer if they are kept very slim by feeding them nutrient dense food in low amounts. Some days they are not fed at all.


When animals go into the state of starvation or some other severe stress their chemistry switches on the longevity genes called sirtuins to prevent death. Activating … Read the rest
