Dry skin? Easy Skin Care Help

January 5th, 2013

The winter months bring added desire for skin care help with dry skin problems.

Those already with dry skin do not look forward to the added irritation that winter weather brings, as severe dry skin can be quite painful, even leading to bleeding, and definitely an unwanted distraction during daily responsibilities.

I recently read a helpful article with good, easy skin care help for dry skin by Dr. David J. Foreman, Herbal Pharmacist, who writes a monthly newsletter for the Vitamin Shoppe chain of stores. (We buy most of our supplements there.) The information below contains excerpts from his article on “Winter Dry Skin Tips.” You can find more of Dr. Foreman’s articles at www.VitaminShoppe.com, click on Articles and More at the top, then on Advice from Experts/Herbal Pharmacist; you will then see the archives on the right.

The first step for skin care is using an EFA, essential fatty acid, such as fish oil or a vegetarian source containing flax, borage, or Evening Primrose oil.

Though either type works well for dry skin, Dr. Foreman prefers the fish oil as it provides many additional health benefits not derived from the vegetarian oils. He, his friends, and family have found that the EFAs work better than anything else previously tried Immerse Yourself in the Full Healing Contemplation Here »

Shower Filter for Pure Water – Water Purification

July 31st, 2008

Reading Level: Leisurely

Research shows that our harmful exposure to chlorine via shower water can be 100 times greater than through the ingestion of drinking water. (1)

Though we absorb a significant amount of toxins through ingestion (eating/drinking), an even greater amount of toxins are absorbed through our skin. “Researchers have estimated that dermal [skin] absorption of contaminants in drinking water [tap water] accounts for an average of 64% of the dose incurred (2).” Also during showering, any contaminants in the water are absorbed through the inhalation of steam.

Many diseases such as breast cancer, other cancers, asthma, bronchitis are linked to chlorine absorption.

Though most of our diseases appear to be the result of the absorption of a variety of toxins in our environment, we should not discount the affect of chlorine in our daily environment as, first, it is easy to remove, and second, high levels of it have been found in many people with these diseases.

Water Filter for Drinking Water

July 26th, 2008

Reading Level: Leisurely

Due to changes in our environment, tap water is not as safe as what we once believed it to be.

We have flooded our environment with so many chemicals that, even after the sewer water or other water source has been processed through a treatment plant, numerous chemicals still remain: weed killers such as atrazine, insecticides such as lindane, drugs such as birth control pills, heavy metal toxins such as lead and mercury. Even the chlorine which was added to kill outbreaks of bacteria can be toxic to us. Here are 2 research quotes on drinking water contaminates:

A 2003 study by the nonprofit Natural Resources Defence Council (NRDC) found that due to a combination of pollution and deteriorating equipment and pipes, the public water supplies in 19 of America’s largest cities delivered drinking water that contained contaminant levels exceeding EPA [Environmental Protection Agency] limits (either legal limits or unenforceable suggested limits).*

“Exposure to the contaminants [sometimes found in public and private drinking water] can cause a number of health problems, ranging from nausea and stomach pain to developmental problems and cancer,” notes Physicians for Social Responsibility (PSR) in its booklet, Drinking Water: What Health Care Providers Should Know. PSR estimates that up to 900,000 people get sick and 900 die in the US per year from contaminated public and private drinking water.*

A small, under-the-sink water filter is an inexpensive way to greatly improve the safety of your home drinking water. Immerse Yourself in the Full Healing Contemplation Here »
