Easy Home Remedies For Clear Skin

There are few things more frustrating than blemished skin, so consider turning to these easy home remedies for clear skin instead of harsh and expensive skin care creams and washes.

Especially if you have sensitive skin, you will most likely find that over the counter and prescription skin care products are too strong and can potentially add to the problem with your skin.


Furthermore, a trip down any grocery store or drug store aisle will produce an overwhelming number of skin care products that can easily rack up a hefty bill. Instead, save your skin in addition to saving a few bucks by whipping up a quick and easy skin care remedy out of items that are probably already in your home.

* Clear Your Skin From Within *

Remember the old saying, you are what you eat?

Although the adage has been around for years, the advice is completely up to date. If you find yourself suffering from acne or other skin blemishes, take a look of your body from the inside out.

Your body notifies you when something is off balance, especially when you are lacking the proper nutrients, vitamins, and minerals. This notification can likely express itself in the appearance of blemishes.

Instead of slathering your skin with items from the beauty aisle, take a walk down the rest of the aisle in your grocery store in order to experience a regeneration of your skin.

Eating a well-rounded, healthy diet is incredibly important. Be sure to include lots of fresh fruit and vegetables in your diet, as the nutrients provided by these items are critical.

Furthermore, drink at least eight eight-ounce glasses of water each day to ensure that your skin remains well hydrated.

* Skip The Drug Store And Head To The Kitchen *

Read any label of skin care product available on the retail market and you may find your tummy rumbling. These skin care products are packed with edible ingredients, from oatmeal to honey to avocado to cucumber.

Instead of buying these expensive, heavily preserved creams, lotions, and potions, consider making the alternative mixtures yourself.

Look no further than your kitchen for many fantastic home remedies for clear skin.

When you see a zit pop up, avoid the urge to squeeze! Instead, dab a bit of lemon juice on a cotton swab and apply to the affected area.

The acid in the lemon juice will help extract any infection and your will avoid adding more bacteria to the mix by keeping your hands off your skin.

Since one of the main problems associated with skin blemishes is dead skin cells, exfoliation is critical. Instead of spending big bucks on fancy bottles and containers of exfoliants, grab a canister of old fashioned oatmeal.

Mix with water and scrub your skin clean. The gentleness of the oatmeal is perfect for even the most sensitive skin and the grainy consistency will remove any dead skin cells before they have a problem.

You probably use toothpaste with baking soda for whitening your teeth, so why not use the same product to clear up your skin?

Each night, wash your face with baking soda and water. This mixture is perfect for keeping your skin clean and dry. The basic property of the baking soda works to dry up the excess oils that typically cause skin blemishes.

If a pimple rears its ugly head then you should head immediately to your stove. Mix ground nutmeg with milk and boil.

After the concoction is completely cooled, apply to the affected area and let dry overnight. Wash the yummy mixture off your face in the morning and you will be surprised by the results!

Large Pores - New Laser Treatment For Enlarged Pores

Large pores or enlarged pores on the face are a very frustrating problem for many people. Large pores are prone to forming blackheads and acne. Large pores also often stand out and are more noticeable when makeup is applied.

Treatment of large pores in the past has been primarily directed towards drying agents to reduce oil production in the skin. These treatments do help, but they are temporary measures and do not change the skin structure in a way to reduce pore size permanently.


What Causes Large Pores?

The pores on your face are small holes in the skin which are the openings of the oil glands on the face. These glands, called the sebaceous glands, form a small sack beneath the skin which produces normal skin oils called sebum. There are two basic causes of large pores, which is enlargement of the opening of the oil gland onto the skin:

o Excess Skin Oil Production- People with oily skin have more oil producing cells in their sebaceous glands, the oil producing glands beneath the skin. As more sebum or skin oil is produced, the oil gland enlarges and becomes distended. As the gland and oil sack become enlarged the opening of the oil gland onto the skin, the pore, becomes stretched and appears on the skin as a large or enlarged pore.

Large pores in young facial skin are most common in the areas of the face where the greatest number of oil glands occurs-the nose, forehead and chin. This is often called the T zone, and if you check you will find these areas have more skin oils that the cheeks and eyelids.

o Aging of the Skin- As our face skin ages many very significant changes occur. The most striking aging change is loss of collagen. Collagen is a very important supporting structure in the skin. The oil glands and pores are surrounded and supported by collagen. When collagen is lost with aging, the oil glands and pores loose support and become lax and the pores become larger.

Interestingly, enlarged pores in aged facial skin also occur on the cheeks, an area which has fewer enlarged oil glands in younger people with oily skin. The pores are there in younger people but oil production is less and the pores are not large. However when the supporting collagen is lost with aging, the pores can show up in all face areas.

New Laser Treatment

The new laser treatment works because new collagen is produced which supports the oil glands and actually squeezes or constricts the pore itself by compressing the opening of the pore onto the skin. This laser treatment is called combined laser therapy and is a two step process:

o Non-ablative 1540 or 1440 Laser Treatments-We use a 1540 or 1440 Fractional Erbium Laser to treat the facial skin. There is no down time-your face will have some added color immediately after the treatment for about a day or two. These lasers go deep into the skin and stimulate your skin to make new collagen to compress the pores.

You will need 3 treatments scheduled about 3-4 weeks apart. Treatments take about 30 minutes and are done by our medical aesthetician.

o 2940 Ablative Fractional Laser Resurfacing-At your last non-ablative treatment the doctor will do an additional treatment called a Fractional Ablative Laser Resurfacing. This treatment is an actual laser skin peel. However the new fractional laser is much gentler than the old fashioned CO2 laser resurfacing. Your skin will peel and your skin will be red for 5-7 days.

We do use a topical anesthetic for your comfort.

Our results with this new combined laser approach have been very impressive. Older CO2 laser resurfacing actually made pores larger.
The new approach using fractional laser technology is much better at building new collagen to compress the pores. We have seen surprisingly good results in even older aged skin.

Other Supportive Measures

Traditional methods include skin oil reduction with Brevoxyl skin washes, microdermabrasion, and oil reducing medications such as Retin A, Differin, and Acccutane. These treatments must be discontinued during the combined laser therapy. However after your skin recovered, you will be re-evaluated for the need for these traditional supportive therapies.

This new combined fractional laser treatment is a remarkable and truly revolutionary new therapy. The results, especially in aging skin are truly excellent. If you are troubled by enlarged pores on your face learn more about this exciting new treatment which may be what you are looking for.

What Are the Benefits of Drinking a Lot of Water?

You have no doubt heard the drinking water "rules." You probably know that you should drink between 8 and 10 glasses of water each day. But what are the benefits to drinking a lot of water?

What is Drinking Water?


Think back to when you were in high school chemistry class. Remember the formula for water? H2O. Two parts of hydrogen and one part of oxygen. Water is supposedly colorless, tasteless, and odorless. Drinking water is essential to all known forms of life, whether they are plant or animal life.

How Does The Human Body Use Drinking Water?

Every cell in the human body requires water. Put them altogether, with their load of water, and your body weight is almost two-thirds water. If you weigh 150 pounds (68 kg), about 100 pounds (45 kg) of that is water. You are mostly water, but how does your body use drinking water?

Cells use drinking water as a delivery service. Each cell is separated from its environment by a cell membrane. To do its work, the cell needs to import nutrients and export waste products. Water is the delivery service, bringing in nutrients and taking out waste. Whether you look at red and white blood cells, muscle cells, or nerve cells, they all need water. Without water, most of your cells would get clogged with waste, and starve to death for lack of nutrients.

Healthy cells, with plenty of drinking water, are kept clean and nourished. Like the clean engine of a brand new automobile, fed a perfect blend of quality gasoline (petrol), healthy cells can do exactly what they were designed to do: keep the human body humming along life's journey.

Consider just 7 of the many benefits of drinking a lot of water.

1. Brain. Brain cells that have plenty of drinking water are able to circulate fresh, oxygen-laden blood more readily. The brain remains fresh and alert. Even a small drop in drinking water levels can make your brain's performance level drop as much as 20 to 30 percent!

2. Muscles. Muscle cells with a ready supply of drinking water are able to work longer without tiring. Water delivers a continuing supply of oxygen to muscles. If you are exercising in warm weather, your muscle will need more drinking water every 15 minutes to remain strong.

3. Cooling system. Your body's temperature is maintained through drinking water. The water regulates body temperature through sweat. To maintain a normal temperature of 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit on hot days, or when exercising, the body sweats. Sweat cools the body, but sweat uses up water. We must have a lot of drinking water to replenish the supply.

4. Nerves. Nerve cells transmit messages to and from the brain. To do this, they must use electrolytes. Drinking water is an important way to maintain electrolytes at the proper level so that the nerves can do their work.

5. Stomach and Intestinal Tract. Our bodies use drinking water to digest food in the gastrointestinal tract. Insufficient drinking water will slow the process, resulting in constipation and other medical concerns.

6. Eye and Mouth Protection. Water keeps your eyes and mouth moist. It washes dirt and dust away from your eyes.

7. Joints. Drinking water is like oiling your body's joints. Water lubricates the joints, keeping them flexible, and ensuring smooth motion.

One of the most important benefits to drinking a lot of water is the benefit realized in the kidneys. Urine, which is almost entirely water, removes waste products from the body. As it does so, it leaves your body. Your body must replace that water. Get too little drinking water, and toxic levels of waste build up. The body becomes ill, and eventually dies.

What are the benefits to drinking a lot of water? Health, energy, and life.

Considerations For Owning a Self-Service Carwash Business

Owning and operating self serve and self serve automatic carwashes, can be profitable and enjoyable as well as a good investment. However, there are several factors that need to be considered to maximize your return as well as operate your wash efficiently. The following are major considerations when you are planning to invest in the car wash business.

What Location should I chose?


Like real-estate and retail, location is critical for maximizing profits. Having a carwash out in the middle of nowhere obviously will result in low traffic. You want to be located in high traffic residential areas near retail centers. The ideal location is a corner lot where the carwash is easily accessible from east-west traffic and north-south traffic. The streets should have 30-35 mile per hour speed limits. Often times, a location can be cut off from traffic on the opposite side of the street. A potential customer who has to drive a block past your place and make a u-turn to get to your carwash may opt to find a different wash.

You also need to investigate all known future changes in the location. Are there any changes to traffic flows, is a major retail store leaving (or coming), and are there any potential changes in local zoning laws or ordinances. Are there any potential road construction projects that could affect traffic?

The property should be large enough to accommodate the size wash you want to build as well as have enough room for several vehicles to wait in line safely. City or local ordinances may apply as well. Avoid industrial areas.

What Carwash Equipment should I Buy?

Choosing a low maintenance high reliable carwash system is extremely important for generating revenue and keeping your costs down. A carwash that breaks down frequently will lose customers and drive your operating cost through the roof. A carwash that does not effectively clean the vehicle will lose traffic. There are many types and styles of carwash systems, but the two most important considerations are 1- good cleaning ability, 2. Reliability. One should do a fair amount of research when selecting the equipment, getting references and field data will be helpful in making your best choice.

Make sure that there is a local dealer or distributor that is qualified to service your equipment. Having someone available for fast service or repair is a must for maintaining a continuously open carwash.

How Much Time to Invest?

One needs to be prepared to do daily maintenance, cleaning and inspection regardless of type and make of equipment. Keeping your carwash clean and attractive looking will keep customers coming back to your car wash. Conversely, dirty, run down carwash will turn away a lot of potential clients. One needs to maintain the coin machines regularly, and keep chemicals and other items in supply. It is not unreasonable to expect to spend 2-3 hours every day at a 4 stall carwash; you should assume some part time help on the weekends as well. There is also scheduled maintenenance that needs to be done. Changing oil in pumps and replacing filters are a couple of examples of maintenance activity that needs be done a few times per year. Maintenance intervals will depend on equipment and amount of traffic, your carwash manufacturer will supply you with the recommended maintenance intervals.

One should not expect to do equipment overhauls or part replacements in the first year of operation, but any one in it for the long haul should be prepared for equipment updates and overhauls periodically. Having a local distributor/ dealer will be very important for keeping your carwash operational.

Having a good preventative maintenance system will go along way to ensuring maximum profitability and customer satisfaction.

How should my carwash be configured?

The more options your carwash has and the larger variety of vehicles that you can handle, the more traffic you will get. One should probably have 2-3 self service "manual" stalls with a stall equipped with an automatic system. Many customers prefer the do-it- yourself system.

Your automated system should also offer several options, allowing a lower cost "quicker clean" and a higher end clean with wax options will attract the most customers. Make sure you don't compete with your do it yourself stalls on the low end, nor with the "high end" full service carwash down the road.

Most new carwash systems can handle the larger SUV and trucks, but one should make sure that your automated carwash system can handle a variety of vehicles.

What kind of Traffic Can I Assume?

Traffic will vary greatly depending on location, season of the year, day of the week and even time of the day. In the Upper Midwest, November through February gets much heavier traffic than the other months because the cars get dirtier faster in the winter. One should expect 20% to 30% more traffic during these peak months than the off months.

The weekend (Friday, Saturday and Sunday) are the busiest days of the week and you may require additional help to manage your carwash during this time. Car wash traffic will drop off when the sun goes down, so you can expect higher levels of traffic in the 9:00 am to early evening times.

One estimate of number of vehicles washed during a day would be 20 to 40 cars on a week day and 50 to 70 cars on a week end day. This of course can vary greatly based on location, car wash configuration and seasons of the year and of course weather.

How Much Can I Charge?

Rates do vary depending on area of the country and local competition. For example some car washes on the West Coast have a greater start up cost than car washes in the Midwest. To make sure that you are competitive be sure to check out your local competition to justify your start up time.

Adding vending machines can also increase revenue. Wiping towels, car cleaning supplies and fragrances are some options for your vending machine.

What are My Operational Costs?

Taxes, property and facility costs, interest on loans, supplies such as chemicals, equipment maintenance and upgrade costs along with part time help for weekends and peak times need to be investigated before starting a carwash business. You should be prepared to pay an attendant 8-16 hours per week for weekend coverage.

The Color of Mucus - Deciphering the Hues

Whether created to lighten the weight of the head, serve as a "crumple zone," give better resonance to the voice, just simply to produce mucus, or for a combination of all those reasons, the sinus cavities play a vital role in our breathing mechanism and in keeping us healthy. Without the yucky stuff they produce our lives would be miserable.

It is interesting that we do not notice the sinuses' constant production of mucus until it becomes thick or excessive-although normally we produce up to a quart a day--or it creates sinus pressure. Besides giving moisture to the air when needed, mucus acts as gatekeeper warding off viruses, bacteria, foreign particles, pollutants, that otherwise would compromise our breathing mechanism and cause infection and other problems. It does not catch only those elements, but it also washes them away.


What about the colors of mucus? According to some authorities here are the meanings:

Clear and watery- this is the normal, healthy kind; it is constantly being produced and is needed for the protection of our breathing apparatus, digestive organs, etc., by guarding them against contamination and disease. It contains antiseptic enzymes, salts and water, of course. Mucus also serves as a lubricant. Clear, again, is the natural healthy color of mucus.

Yellow- produced when the air is too dry, can also be an indication of a sinus infection, bronchitis--when accompanied by coughing, wheezing, fatigue, chest discomfort, shortness of breath after a mild exertion; not all these signs or symptoms need to be present when having bronchitis.

Green- can be a sign of a sinus infection or bronchitis-see additional signs and symptoms for bronchitis under yellow, above. If there is a green nasal discharge accompanied by a sinus pain or fever and this has been going on for several days it can be a sign or symptom of a bacterial infection and a doctor should be seen.

Brown- if you smoke or have spent some time in a place filled with tobacco smoke chances are that this is the cause of that mucus color. Smoking exacerbates any respiratory health issue and makes much worse any mucus problem in the upper respiratory organs and passages. It pays to quit smoking.

White- this is not a common hue of mucus and it can be caused by the use of dairy products, especially when one is having congestion and pressure in the sinuses and a dairy product, especially milk, is used. It can also be an indication of bronchitis-see additional signs and symptoms for bronchitis under yellow, above.

Blood- whenever blood accompanies any of the above mucus colors or appears by itself it should be taken seriously and a physician should be consulted soon.

Mucus not only helps us detect what is wrong with us, but it aids our body by protecting it, as we have seen, against unwanted elements in our environment. Mucus is a friend.

Healing Adult Cavities, Gum Disease, and Toothache

Causes and Treatments for Adult Gum Disease, Tooth Ache, and Cavities

Let's face it, going to the dentist is not fun. And as I've learned, getting a dental procedure does not solve your problem permanently. Rather it sets you up to have continual mouth problems for perhaps the rest of your life. Dentists temporarily treat one problem, that same problem then needs a retreatment 5-40 years later. Each treatment being more severe until false teeth are needed. A few lucky people are immune to tooth problems, and other's do well with one dental treatment and have no need to return to the dentist in their lives. A dentist is really a doctor of dental surgery, someone who cures tooth problems through surgical medical procedures. These procedures to a large degree are irreversible. There is a great need and motivation to heal teeth naturally.


Why Teeth Decay

Tooth decay is caused by a deficiency of vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients in the body needed to build healthy teeth. "Daily, the calcium and phosphate of the enamel is migrating out of the teeth to the bones, heart, brain and other places where it is needed. This is called by dentists demineralization." Re-enamelization (teeth growing back) of enamel requires several factors, including enough minerals such as calcium, phosphate, magnesium, and the variety of enzymes needed to regrow tooth enamel such as adenosine diphophatase. Dr. Weston Price was a dentist who traveled around the world in the 1930's and 1940's studying the diet's of primitive people's isolated from the modern world. Weston Price found that he could eliminate or greatly reduce bad bacteria's in the mouth which fuel the tooth degeneration process through diet. "These data are typical of clinical cases in which dental caries has been reduced apparently to zero, as indicated by both x-ray and instrumental examination."

Tooth decay begins many generations back. "The weakness of calcium deficiency is passed from parent to child. By following the same paternal pattern of 'poor food selection,' each new crop of babies becomes weaker. 'The sins of the parents are passed on to the third and fourth generation.'" The weakness is caused not just by a lack of calcium, but by a lack of fat soluble & water soluble vitamins. "When Dr. Price analyzed the foods used by isolated primitive peoples he found that they provided at least four times the water soluble vitamins, calcium and other minerals, and at least TEN times the fat soluble vitamins from animal foods such as butter, fish eggs, shellfish and organ meats... Many tribes required a period of premarital nutrition, and children were spaced to permit the mother to maintain her full health and strength, thus assuring subsequent offspring of physical excellence." Many primitive groups Dr. Price studied had a tooth cavity rate close to 0. Weston Price also noticed in groups following their traditional diet that decayed teeth either fell out painlessly, or they covered themselves over with a hardened layer of enamel. Weston Price treated many cases of cavities with a success rate of over 90%. At the end of this article is a copy of Dr. Price's tooth decay controlling diet for children. On my website I've scanned an x-ray image showing how Price's tooth decay controlling diet healed a girls teeth which had two cavities per tooth, which full dentures where recommended.

Not eating enough nutrients isn't the only reason why teeth would decay. They also could decay because the body has become too toxic. We unknowingly ingest these toxins daily. The most toxic substances are drugs, white sugar, breakfast cereals, cheap vegetable oils and hydrogenated oils. There is a complete list of toxic elements below. After years of this behavior, combined with smoking cigarettes, too many medications, and lack of exercise, the liver starts to become weak. The liver is the bodies nutrient store house. The toxic accumulations from cellular metabolism, as well as ingested food products inhibit the bodies ability for normal function. It's very likely that there are deeper health problems than simply tooth decay.

Any toothpaste which is pasty contains glycerin. The glycerin takes about 27 washes with water to remove from the tooth's surface. There are many alternative products such as tooth liquids, tooth powders, sea salt and baking soda, organic soap and herbs to clean and treat teeth.

Why Gums Recede

This portion of my article is based entirely on my intuition. Gums recede ultimately for the same reason teeth decay. Lack of nutrients, and too many toxins in the body preventing proper function of the bodies mechanisms. Therefore receding gums is a clear indication that your body is in an active process of degeneration. The cause of these conditions should be addressed immediately through proper body cleansing and proper nutrient intake as described in my web site. For whatever reason, depending on someone's genetics, or structure of their energetic patterns, or the type of toxin and nutrient deficiency, the result in one person could be tooth decay, and in another person, gum disease, and in other people, both.


A toothache means that the there is leak of the boundary between the inner part of the tooth called the pulp where the nerve is located, and the environment of the mouth. I was told that this can be caused by the wearing away of the filaments which bond the tooth into the jaw bone under the gum line. A tooth ache also means that your tooth is likely demineralizing. The outer layer of the tooth has become breached due to a loss of minerals from the surface.

White Sugar, evaporated Cane Juice, Corn Syrup, and Organic Cane Sugar - White Sugar is a skeletonized product, in order to have a long shelf life, all of it's main constituents are removed.

Scientific evidence against sugar has been mounting for decades. As early as 1933 research showed that increased consumption of sugar caused an increase in various disease conditions in school children. Sugar, especially fructose, has been shown to shorten life in numerous animal experiments.. Numerous subsequent studies have positively correlated sugar consumption with heart disease... A survey of medical journals in the 1970s produced findings implicating sugar as a causative factor in kidney disease, liver disease, shortened life span, increased desire for coffee and tobacco, arteriosclerosis and coronary heart disease. Finally sugar consumption was proved by Dr. Melvin Page to leech calcium out of our bones. This is how sugar contributes to tooth decay, it has little to do with sugar resting on the surface of the tooth.

White Flour and Flour products - White flour has had it's vitamin and mineral content removed to do it's high level of rancidity. Freshly ground flour seldom stays good for more than two weeks even when it is refrigerated. To solve this problem, food manufacturer's remove the vitamins and minerals from the flour to prevent it from going rancid. This was done with the selfish motive of profit for the food company, not in harmony with nature's law of balance. "[I]n the production of refined white flour approximately eighty percent or four-fifths of the phosphorous and calcium content are usually removed, together with the vitamins and minerals provided in the embryo or germ. The evidence indicates that a very important factor in the lowering of the reproductive efficiency of womanhood is directly related to the removal of vitamin E in the processing of wheat."

Low cost Vegetable Oils and Hydrogenated Oil - It is important to understand that, of all substances ingested by the body, it is polyunsaturated oils that are rendered most dangerous by food processing, especially unstable omega-3 linolenic acid. In the old days oil was extracted with slow moving stone presses. In large factories seeds are heated to 230 degrees farenheit. The oil is then squeezed out at pressures from 10 to 20 tons per inch. In order to extract oil from the final pulp, chemicals are added such as hexane. The solvent is boiled but up to 100 part per million remain in the oil. The solvent is toxic, and it also bonds to toxic pesticides in the seeds. The high temperature processing causes the weak carbon bonds of the unsaturated fatty acids to break apart, thereby creating dangerous free radicals. And finally BHT and BHA, both suspected of causing cancer and brain damage are added to the oils to replace the lost natural preservatives which where destroyed by the heat processing. Any cheap oil, such as soy, corn, cottonseed, canola, etc. falls under this category. Still want to eat this oil?

Partially hydrogenated margarines and shortening are even worse for you than the highly refined vegetable oils from which they are made because of chemical changes that occur during the hydrogenation process. Man made trans fats are toxins to the body, but unfortunately your digestive system does not recognize them as such. Instead of eliminating them, your body incorporates the trans fats into the cell membranes as though they where naturally occurring fats called cis fats. Your cell actually become partially hydrogenated. This interferes with cellular metabolism because it changes the normal chemical reactions which take place in the cell.

Iodized Salt - Normal table salt is highly refined. Salt is the product of a chemical and high temperature industrial process that removes all the valuable magnesium salts as well as trace minerals naturally occurring in the sea.

Pasteurized Milk & powdered Milk- The milk sold in the supermarket is bad for everybody. The modern milk cow is a mutant cow which produces three to four times as much milk as a standard cow. This mutant cow has been selectively bred from cows who have active pituitary glands, and is then fed an excessively high protein diet. These overactive pituitary glands produce growth hormones, which are present in today's milk supply. While small amounts of hormones in cows milk is okay, excessive pituitary hormones are also associated with tumor formation, and some studies link milk consumption with cancer. The freak pituitary cow is prone to many diseases. She almost always secretes pus into her milk and needs frequent doses of antibiotics. The high protein feed these cows eat is made from soy beans. This is not the cows natural diet, and there is no scientific information as to the quality of the protein in the soy fed milk.

Pasteurizing milk is no guarantee of cleanliness. There was a salmonella outbreak in 1985 in Illinois affecting 14,000 people. Pasteurization destroys the helpful organisms found in raw milk, leaving the finished product devoid of any protective mechanism should undesirable bacteria inadvertently contaminate the supply. Heat alters the milk's amino acids, it promotes rancidity of unsaturated fatty acids and destruction of vitamins. Vitamin C loss exceeds 50%, and other vitamin loss runs as high as 80%. Vitamin B-12 is totally destroyed. Milk comes with enzymes which help the body digest the milk. Pasteurization kills all of these enzymes. After pasteurization synthetic vitamin D-2 may be added which has been linked to heart disease. Because milk is devoid of its enzyme content, it puts an enormous strain on the body's digestive mechanism. In the elderly, and those with milk intolerance or weak digestion, the milk passes through not fully digested and can build up around the tiny villi of the small intestine preventing the absorption of the vital nutrients and promoting the uptake of toxic substances.

Soy Milk, Soy Meat, Soy Protein, Soy Formula and Tofu - Soy protein powder is high in mineral-blocking phytates, thyroid depressing phytoestrogens and potent enzyme inhibitors that depress growth and cause cancer. Phytates are substances that block the absorption of minerals in the body. Soybeans are high in phytates and contain potent enzyme inhibitors that are only deactiviated by fermentation and not by ordinary cooking. These inhibitors can lead to protein assimilation problems in those who consume unfermented soy product frequently. Soy milk often substituted for cow's milk, also has a high phyatate content and can lead to mineral dieficiences. Phytoestrogens found in soy foods, although touted as panaceas for heart disease, cancer and osteoporosis, are potent endocrine disrupters as well as goitrogens - substances that depress thyroid function.

Unsoaked Grains and Nuts, including Cereal, Granola, Peanut Butter, Bread, and Pasta, Cracker's and Cookies - Phosphorus in the bran of whole grains is tied up in a substance called phytic acid. Phytic acid combines with iron, calcium, magnesium, copper and zinc in the intestinal tract, blocking their absorption. Whole grains also contain enzyme inhibitors that can interfere with digestion. Whole grains that have been processed by high heat and pressure to produce puffed wheat, oats, and rice are actually quite toxic and have caused rapid death in test animals. Breakfast cerals can have more adverse effects on blood sugar then refined sugar and white flour because they have been processed at high temperatures and pressures to make their shapes. This process leaves phytic acid intact but destroys phytase, an enzyme that breaks down some of the phytic acid in the digestive tract. Most grains and legume available in supermarkets have been treated numerous times with pesticides and other sprays that inhibit mold and vermin. I used to eat organic breakfast cereal, sometimes made with puffed wheat. These grain cereals did not have pesticides and other harmful chemical additives, as they where organic. However, being organic just meant that my toxic puffed oats where free of other possibly dangerous substances. Good thing I used organic! J

Non-Pasture Fed Meat & Eggs - The meat, milk, and eggs in our supermarkets are highly contaminated and vastly inferior in nutritional quality to those available to our ancestors just a few decades ago. Modern cattle-raising techniques include the use of steroids to make meat more tender and antibiotics that allow cattle to survive in crowded feedlots. Diseased animals routinely pass inspection and find their way into the food supply. Chicken are raised in crowded pens, often under artificial light both night and day and fed on substandard food. Their eggs are inferior in nutritional qualities to those of free-range, properly nourished hens. According to renowned cancer specialist Virginia Livingston-Wheeler, most chicken and nearly half the beef consumed in America today is cancerous and pathogenic. Her research has convinced her that these cancers are transmissible to man.

Healing Tooth Decay

Tooth decay and tooth healing happens through two mechanisms. #1 From within the tooth from a toxic blood supply or a deficient blood supply to the tooth. #2 Defective saliva within the mouth. "I feel perfectly confident that both inside the tooth and outside on the surface new construction is occurring constantly, even if at a slow rate." "Nearly all tooth decay comes from the blood stream, saliva, and the inside of the teeth, not only from the external surface. The teeth deteriorate but it is from the toxic blood stream and the enamel-destroying toxic saliva which is the result of an impure blood stream."

Germs are a secondary factor in tooth decay. So even if the adult's teeth and mouth are totally clean and void of bacteria's, the tooth will still decay. The tooth will still decay because there are not enough minerals in the body, primarily Calcium, Magnesium, and Phosphorus, to create a new tooth surface. This also means if your child has tooth problems, that their overall body is both weak and depleted as the minerals are moving from the teeth to other more important parts.

Proper care of teeth

Brush the your teeth often if possible. Absolutely do not use fluoride or give your child fluoride treatments. While these have some short term temporary benefits, fluoride changes the chemical structure of the tooth making it extra brittle. Fluoride is highly poisonous and most tubes of toothpaste contain a lethal amount of fluoride. It takes about ½ teaspoon of fluoride to kill a 100 lb. person. Dr. Dean Burk was a highly respected chemist who worked for the National Cancer institute. He testified before congress that he believed water fluoridation to have caused about 1/10th of all cancer deaths. That's 61,000 people per year. Instead of toothpaste use tooth powder or tooth herbs or sea salt to brush your child's teeth. Regular tooth paste contains glycerin which coats the teeth with a layer of goop that prevents the teeth from remineralizing. You can also use small amounts of soap on the child's tooth brush to clean their teeth. This should not create any bad taste in the child's mouth. The soap also kills bacteria's. Herbal mouthwashes or herbal gum treatments can be helpful as well provided they are not swallowed.

In conclusion, you can brush your teeth and subject yourself to expensive dental treatments. These are not cures, but simply treatments of the symptoms of nutritional deficiency and an accumulation of toxins. In examining your diet and health habits you will likely find a history of a diet high in the foods which where to be avoided, and low in the foods containing the highest amounts of vitamins. The US RDA (recommended daily allowances) for food are the minimum requirements for survival. Weston Price found that people following primitive diets consume between four and ten times the amount of vitamins than the RDA. Four - Ten times recommended is what is required for a cavity free, healthy child. (Between 30-70% of America falls below the RDA) It is quite possible that most childhood illnesses, in addition to tooth decay, such as colicky babies are caused by nutritional deficiencies.

Take responsibility for your health and eat properly. Rebuilding bones can take up to one year, so don't expect immediate results other than a more fulfilled, happier, smarter and more peaceful state of being. These changes go against the grain of society, and you might be tempted to only follow some. It's much easier to ignore the true causes of illness, than to treat them. It's hard work to make these changes, but it's worth it. Please, do it for your family. I personally decided to not do any dental treatments to my teeth even though x-rays show three cavities. They don't bother me and hopefully they won't get worse and they'll heal up.

The child received a bowl containing a pint of very rich vegetable and meat stew made largely from bone marrow and fine cuts of tender meat. Plenty of yellow carrots in where in this soup. Cooked fruit with very little sweetening and rolls made from freshly ground whole wheat and spread with high vitamin butter. The wheat for the rolls where ground fresh every day in a motor driven coffee mill. Each child was given also 2 glasses of fresh whole milk.

Skin Boils Cure and Prevention - How to Cure Boils Without Expensive Drugs Or Supplements

How My Proven Boils Cure and Prevention Program Ended 3 Years of Vicious Boil Outbreaks

I battled vicious skin boils for 3 long years. My body has been peppered with deep bruises, painful swelling, dark blemishes, and permanent scars. It's no exaggeration to say my skin boil condition cost me a small fortune between all the over the counter skin boils cure, house cleaning supplies, and doctor bills.


I was diagnosed with a severe strain of staph bacteria that was very aggressive. Once I had a breakout, it was only a matter of time before it spread. I was so desperate to stop it that I would panic anytime anything resembling a boil appeared on my skin. I was honestly an emotional wreck and I felt helpless.

I got to the point where I tried just about any skin boils cure on the market - often wasting a lot of money through my trial and error process. I was just so frustrated and fed up. One week, I began a very bad skin boil outbreak that caused me to go to the emergency room (primarily because I had skin boils forming on my face). My doctor's "skin boils cure" for this consisted of getting the boils drained and patched. When I left the ER with my antibiotics and doctor's bill in hand, I told myself I would find a way to stop these attacks so I never had to go through this again!

I was determined to find an effective skin boils cure. I got on the internet and spent the next several months looking at medical research, talking to Dermatologists, and emailing other skin boil victims. I did this until I finally found a proven skin boils cure. This skin boils cure has also allowed me to prevent future outbreaks as well. I have gone 14 months without a single skin boil outbreak!

Skin Boils Cure and Prevention Program: Skin Boil Prevention is the Best Skin Boils Cure!

To understand how to completely rid yourself of staph bacteria so you do not get skin boils anymore, first you have to understand the most critical stages of skin boil attack. For staph bacteria to successfully invade your body either through a hair follicle or a break in your skin, 2 absolutely necessary things must occur:

- Staph Bacteria must be near a break in your skin (to be present for the invasion).
- Staph Bacteria must be able to quickly overcome your body's natural defenses.

If you can stop these two vital steps, you can prevent a skin boil attack altogether. However, doing this requires a little more work than meets the eye. However, the 2 major steps for this proven skin boils cure and prevention program are simple enough for you to start doing it right now!

1) Enhance Your Natural Immune System Responses

The primary way to stop your skin boils from coming back is through immune system support. This is the most vital part of this program. If you can provide a compound shown to fight off your skin boils internally - you can successfully suppress them!

There are several natural products out there for under that not only strengthen your immune system response, but also have been shown (tested) to be VERY effective at fighting off the nasty strains of staph bacteria that cause skin boils.

(For more information on what to use, please visit my website at the bottom of this article.)

2) Cripple staph colonization on your body

If you suffer from skin boils that keep coming back, it is usually a sign staph bacteria have colonized on your body. This means the bacteria are being carried on your skin just waiting for the opportunity to infect you!

This is why reducing the amount of bacteria on your skin is vital to both an effective skin boils cure and the prevention of future boil outbreaks. What's more, this can be accomplished by simply using the right kind of soap and/or lotion on your body.

Ensure you wash your body with a cleanser that doesn't over dry but still provides gentle antibacterial cleansing. There are several soaps out there that claim to provide "antibacterial cleansing" but in the process they dry your skin out. This can cause micro tears on your skin that can be easily infected by staph bacteria causing you more skin boils than non-antibacterial soap.

Recently, several non-prescription body washes have been studied, but only a few have been shown to specifically kill nasty skin boil causing staph bacteria. This even includes more dangerous strains of staph like MRSA. The key is to finding a good one and eliminating the bacteria on your body.
For more information about which one to use, please visit my website.

Collectively, these two actions are enough not only to provide a solid skin boils cure, but to help you prevent skin boils altogether. They have allowed me to go more than 14 months without a single skin boil!

I hope this information helps you with your skin boil struggle. Thanks for reading and good luck!
