Caring for Aging Parents

Recently, I was very touched and moved by a sincere letter written by Dr. Nick Delgado about how he turned his Dad around and made the final days of his Dad’s life a pleasure for himself, for his Dad and for the rest of the family. This was particularly poignant to me as I have had two similar voyages with my Dad, victim of congestive heart failure at 88, and with my late husband a fitness icon cut down too young by a stroke. Dr. Delgado and many colleagues have studied and have found solutions for many many aging adults to minimize or relieve entirely the debilitating effects of aging, weakness, memory loss, Alzheimer’s, lack of sexual energy, inability to perform and others. More importantly for those of us who fill the role as primary caregiver is to maintain cognitive function.

How to Eliminate Man Boobs Naturally

Man boobs, which are referred to medically as gynecomastia, are becoming increasingly common in America. In fact, the swelling of breast tissue is estimated to effect approximately 40% of all men at some point in their lives, causing physical tenderness, and unnecessary anxiety and social discomfort. Plastic surgeons are cashing in on the embarrassment and shame associated with man boobs and many charge over $10,000 to surgically remove the excess breast tissue. Surgery should not be your first line of defense however; not only is it expensive, invasive and painful, it also fails to address the root cause.

Acne is not just a problem for teenagers; it can develop and persist well into adulthood and a whopping 80% of us will struggle with it at some point in our lives. There is a common misbelief that acne is a topical issue, and hundreds of millions of dollars are thrown down the drain every year on topical acne products that simply don’t work. In fact, many topical acne products actually make acne worse because they increase inflammation, irritation, and skin dryness, which causes an increase in the production of pore-clogging sebum. Acne is a lifestyle disease, caused by an unhealthy, inflammatory diet, toxic overload, lack of sleep, and chronic stress. Caffeine consumption is another major contributor to acne because of its stress inducing and hormone altering effects on your body. So if you want to heal acne for good, ditch that cup a joe and listen-up.
