Hematite99, an exercise that helps is to look up to the ceiling and open and close your jaw a few times.

Thanks Mmsg! I've added your under-neck-skin-tightening exercise to my "5 Tibetan Rites" that I do every morning and I'm seeing even better and greater tightening of my now older, turkey-neck skin acquired after losing 40+ lbs. Your solution of opening the mouth wide then slowly closing it does contract the muscles in the lower jaw and neck area. I've been doing this during the 3rd Tibetan Rite for the past 3 weeks. Result? Today, as my husband sat across the table from me he remarked upon how thin, tiny, and tight my neck and face has become -- elfin he said! Well, I'm too tough to be an elf (despite the weight loss) but I appreciated the compliment. :> Blessings to All! Caitlin

I'm having a hard time finding a beginning to describe what cold showers has done for me! first of all, this seems insane for me because i'm such a cold natured person. But since i've tried this i find that i'm not so cold anymore! I work out every day and play tennis twice a week, but first let me say i'm in my mid 40's, i have 4 children (two in their 20's and two are not yet school age) so keeping fit and appearance are very important to me! I've always been told i look half my age, but what i've noticed more than anything is my skin!! The improvement in tone is just amazing to me. The first few days (after showering in the cold) i just kept looking at my face in the mirror. Only after a few days of cold showers i noticed a difference in the way i felt, my energy, metabolism, skin, and my pain!!! i had a hip injury almost 8 months ago and i've been doing strengthening excersizes and therapy to help this slow healing process, but after taking the showers i've had almost NO pain!! that has been the most amazing part to me. I'm hooked. I'll never go back to warm showers (except when necessary) I only wish i had known about this years ago! But i can tell you, it's never too late!!!

I read somewhere that cold showers/baths has an alkalinising effect on the body. Cold helps to balance the body's pH level. Great in theory, but it is winter here now and I just can not bring myself to such torture as a cold shower. My 4 year old grandson insists on having cold baths....his daddy practices natural medicine and also has cold showers. I have never known my son in law to be sick and his skin is amazing.

Cold showers have been great for me too! I understand some people's hesitancy to hop into a cold show at first. What I do is start it out warm- not hot because those really hot showers just dry your skin up and I feel like they drive my body temperature up too. Instead, I start it out just warm enough to feel nice, then gradually cool it down as I am washing my hair & face, then by the time I get to the end of the shower, it's completely cold. I make sure to rinse out my hair completely with cold water, til there is no warmth running out of it anymore. My skin has definitely been more moist & smooth. My hair also feels much nicer- combining it with some of the natural shampoos talked about in other parts of the site, my hair is feeling much more soft and clean. I don't wake up the next morning with that gunky feeling in my hair. Cold showers take a little getting used to, but I definitely recommend trying it for a few days!

I have been taking cold showers every day now for almost three months, and I recently got the results of my latest blood and urine lab tests from my doctor. Blood sugar and cholesterol were markedly lower than the tests showed just prior to starting the cold shower regimen, with no appreciable changes in diet or physical exercise. My blood pressure was lower, and my pulse rate at rest has decreased from 72 to 54, which I find amazing. I am not in "great" shape physically, and I can only attribute these changes to the cold showers. This might actually be the 'fountain of youth'.

ORH here, and this is about my lake neighbor of 30 years that runs our ridges 3 or 4 times a week. He is an engineer at Watts Bar Nuclear Plant and a shy, but good guy. He is 67, and thin as a rail. We have offered them garden veggies numerous times, but he always says that he only eats meat and potatoes. I told him he was a paradox because he works so hard to stay healthy and I would expect him to only eat organic. My Tractor Driver met his wife at our mailbox yesterday and ask about John because we have not seen him for months. She said he had a stroke in October and is just now getting out of the house. We saw him today for the first time doing his jogging thing. John is slightly wild and strange because all dogs will bite him and he has to run with an electric cattle prod to keep dogs from biting him. If you are frightened of dogs you put off a smell from three places....... under arm pits, palms, and soles of your feet. This is not sweat, it is due to emotions and all animals can sense this and it makes them nervous and they will bite you. John has been bitten many times as a result. John, is in deep sheet because plaque due to his diet has him plugged up...... running or no running. My wife explained that EDTA Chelation will clean all this plaque out within 3 months. I can promise you that John will not participate. I am 84 and he is 67 and I will out live him. You are what you eat. I testify before many, but no one listens. They think I am a nut. New subject............. my left knee is now giving me pain. Let me tell you what I am going to do. I am going to shoot up my left knee with Ozone myself. I have had others save my right knee. Now I am going to save my left knee myself. If I fail, you will know. because I tell True Stories. Hips are also bad, but smart enough to not mess with my spine. Be glad when the IT's take over and we can progress by a thousand years on health and lots of things.

I am 43 and am completely wrinkle free and youthful looking and do not use any moisturizer or special cream. My secret is my diet and it is 100 % vegan and sugar, yeast and salt free (including hidden sodium in soy sauce and baking powder). It is tough not eating any of these ingredients and I have to cook nearly everything I eat but the pay off is that I do not have any wrinkles and do honestly look about at least 10-20 years younger than I am. Sugar, salt and yeast are what causes wrinkles and exterior aging, especially salt, and animals products is what ages us health wise so if you eliminate them from your diet you too can have eternal youthfulness.

How do you cook your food without the salt? Are you cooking less salt or totally no salt? I want to start that too but the first time I cooked without salt, when I starved and while preparing to reheat the food I cooked (without salt), my whole body was shaking. I never felt anything like this before whenever I get hungry. Is it because of my body's reaction to no salt food?

Replied by Molly
(Baltimore, US)

I think your reaction is caused by a nutrient deficit. Salt is a needed ingredient in the diet. Even animals have "salt licks". Celtic Sea Salt is the best salt, in my opinion.

Replied by Heinz
(Tampa, Florida)

I agree with Molly.

Without salt our electrical system can't operate properly. Refined salt is a poison. Key word refined.

True sea salt, think pink or celtic, is good for us. The mineral profile of sea salt is the same as the body. I believe the celtic is best because it has more minerals, but pink or Himalayan is also good.

Without trace minerals we get the "munchies" because the body is saying I need nutrition. Without salt we die. Without cholesterol we get Alzheimer's.

Half truths can kill us.

I m actually 44 years old this year and have a 13 years old son but everyone thinks i m nothing over 25 or 26 and whenever they meet me with my son ppl always ask if he is my brother and i always get them saying that i m too young to have a such a teenage son. My secret to the youthful appearance (and i have energy of a 25 years old too) is i am a vegetarian, i eat lots of raw vegetables and fruits, i mean really plenty of fruits and juices and salads in my diet. I use only olive oil in any cooking, and i dont use any kind of salad dressing but instead i top up my salad with almond nuts and its not only healthy but also very very yummy. I take low fat yogurt daily. I never miss my green vegetables too, i have kale and spinach just lightly cooked with garlic daily and plenty of it. My weight never goes up and i m slim. I take a lots of garlic too. I drink plenty of water. I drink 500ml of green tea daily. I think more than chemical facials and other expensive skin care, what we eat is more important to determine our appearance and well being. use almonds nuts blended with milk into paste to apply to face for a about 15 mins and i wash off with warm water to get a clean healthy skin and beautiful skin. Apply raw coconut milk on face and lips and let is on for about 15mins and wash off, u will get a beautiful beautiful glowing skin.

Fountain of Youth-- I am 58 years old and I am still asked for an age ID when going into clubs. I have always looked much younger than I am - Here is what I have always done: * Never take drugs of any kind - no aspirin, no antibiotics, no alcohol, no smoking, This is most important. * I eat raw salads daily and use generous quantities of Apple Cider Vinegar - Organic - and Organic Olive Oil. Most of the food I consume is raw and occasionally I add a little cottage cheese or organic cheese in small amounts and about one time per month, I eat organic kefir or yogurt - The only cooked food I have is vegetable soup that I make from organic vegetables. I do NOT eat any grains, rice, beans etc. Everyone asks me where I get my protein. Apparently I don't need it.

* Still have not gone through menopause, my hair has no gray, my teeth are just like when I was young - I do yoga daily and callanetics and am very active physically. Most people I know are sick with all kinds of things and they run for a prescription immediately - this, I believe, was the biggest factor for me. Oh one more thing - I also use lots of fresh garlic daily in salads. This may sound difficult, but I find it extremely easy to live like this and cook so minimally. No grease in the kitchen!

I am often told that I look much younger than my age. My concern for skin care has led me for many decades to be certain that I get enough protein each day to repair and replenish. It seems to have paid off. I use the formula of one half of ideal weight as the no. of protein grams needed per average day. More protein is needed when ill or under stress. I think it was Adele Davis who wrote on this in the 1960's and I have found it an unfailing formulas for health-the youthful skin is an extra bonus. People say to me "you must have never in your life gone out in the sun" Yet I never avoid the sun purposefully and go about my daily errands with no worries. I do use a light sun screen of course.

Donate Blood Regularly

Posted by Robert Henry (Ten Mile, Tn. ) on 04/05/2015

HAPPY EASTER, , , , , , , , read an article in the Washington Post today where the Titans of Silicon Valley( Billionaires) are now spending hundreds of millions of dollars to learn to live forever. Undoubtably they do not believe there is a heaven.

My suggestion is that they just read EC and the Yahoo's on this site will help them live a long life..... for free. Here is an example.

An article by one of my favorites , Dr Robert Rowan, explains what is revealed in a book by Dr Kensey " THE BLOOD THINNER CURE". Your blood cells get old and stiff and scar your vessels. Your young cells are soft and pliable and thus do not cause you the problems of clots or pluggage.

To keep young cells, then donate blood on a regular basis such that your bone marrow is constantly creating new blood cells. Hey, and instead of paying for this treatment , they give you a "T" shirt. This is not hard. It's a sheet + 2 = 8 thing. Our ancestors knew this and they had a blood letting on a regular basis at their barbers...... thus the barber pole of red and white.

Here's another Earth Clinic Original Recipe, basically the combination of several of our most popular home remedies. Believe or not, this formula doesn't taste as bad as it sounds! The molasses cloaks the taste of the other ingredients.

Try this recipe first at night... you'll be surprised how refreshed you look and feel in the morning. If you like it, you may want to do it again in the morning.

1 Tablespoon Blackstrap Molasses (be careful if you have diabetes -- this may be too sweet for you)
2 Tablespoons of Apple Cider Vinegar
1/8 teaspoon of Baking Soda (per Ted's alkalizing formula)
Glass of hot water (steam distilled water is best)

2-3 shakes of cayenne pepper -- optional (good addition if you need to cut mucous production)
1/2 teaspoon of turmeric -- optional (add this if you have boils or any kind of acne)

Add these ingredients to your mug of hot (but not boiling) water. Stir well and sip slowly. You may want to follow this drink with a couple glasses of water since it can cause dehydration (especially during the night).

Note #1: Blackstrap Molasses is a great skin purifier.
Note #2: Apple Cider Vinegar causes the skin to glow with a healthy pink flush
Note #3: Turmeric appears to shrink pores
Note #4: Baking Soda alkalizes the formula

I am amazed at how facial exercises can turn back the hands of time---at least in the face. I have been doing the "Ageless If You Dare" program of facial exercises for about 2 years now and people think I am much younger than my 55 years. It makes sense, we exercise our bodies to keep them youthful looking, the face also has muscles and facial muscles are what keep the skin up. I love the above-mentioned program because it only takes five minutes a day but there are other programs that I'm sure are also just as effective. Do a google search and start researching. You won't be sorry.

Hi Lynne, I bought a book called "Eva Fraser's Facial workout" but I find the exercises quite difficult so I just gave up. I just don't seem to find the right muscles! Is "Ageless if you dare" also a book? I might give it a try..... Being 53 I would also like to keep my face in good shape.

Hi Francisca, It is a program developed by a lady named Louise Annette. When I purchased the program a year or so ago I got a book and a dvd (only available online) but I think she is updating the program and will be releasing the updated materials soon. If you google her name and "Ageless if you Dare" you'll find lots more info. I just love it. Take care.

I have been doing Facercise with some success, but the naso labial folds only disappear for about thirty minutes after the exercise. I am searching for a better one. I have always been feeling the effects of gravity on my face all day long, until today. I think it's because yesterday I did the cheek developer lying instead of standing. My face felt much more smiley today; lifted. I am going to get a few more books from the library on this subject , & will report my progress if y'all want. Unfortunately I can't get Eva Fraser's book.

A note on the exercises to get lids to be wide open- The only one that's worked for me is the one from Timeless Face, but I alter the time a little, holding reps 6 seconds, 3 or 4 that way, & then an isometric hold for 25-30. My eyes stayed fully open today for the first time, even when I was very tired.

The Timeless Face exercise for lifting up the mouth corners has always worked for me- Carol Maggios exercise hasn't.

For an exercise for younger hands, go to Carolyn's Facial fitness site.

I have also started Tanaka face massage. This is free on youtube. It feels wonderful.

I did the facial acupressure (lindsey wagner's) for 30 days & had absolutely no change.

Although Flaxseed oil can prove somewhat beneficial, it does more harm than good!!! It is like killing a fly with a sledge hammer.

Flaxseed oil is one of the highest foods containing ALA - Alpha Linolenic Acid. ALA is bad for the body!

ALA is a wet blanket for the enzymes that control the eventual flow of Omega 6 essential fatty acids towards the eicosanoid hormones. It knocks out both good and bad eicosanoid hormones. Knocking out the bad ones is good but knocking out the good ones as well creates a breeding ground for cancers!!!

This work is found by Dr. Barry Sears who wrote THE ZONE diet book. He won a Nobel prize in science for his discovery of the eicosanoid hormones and how they function. His advice to keep healthy hormones is to avoid all foods especially Flaxseed oil, which contains ALA. ALA is also found in egg yolks, walnuts, corn and canola oils as well as, Beef, pork and ham..

ALA foods, suppress immune system, increase inflamation, decrease oxygen flow and endurance and constrict airways while also causing blood platelet aggregation.

You may want to rethink your Flaxseed oil remedy. Like I said its like killing a fly with a sledge hammer.

Response to Janice: I think your error is in picking out one chemical alone and ignoring all the other fail-safe chemicals that our creator put into this plant. Most plants (even the non-hybrids) have a few harmful chemicals but other chemicals included in them make them safe to eat or take as herbal remedies. Hence my pokeweed berries that are supposed to be poison, but 40 years past first beginning to appreciate their good qualities, I have nothing but good to say about them although they are supposed to be poison.

The below info on flax seed oil comes from the Federal Government's Data Base on plants compiled by James Duke, PHD. This is only a small part of information on chemicals in flax & their actions.

I also wrote down some of the chemicals found in flax seed:

acetic acid 3,105 - 3,853 ppm (ACV is 5% actic acid)
alanine - antioxidant, cancer preventative
alpha linoleic acid l08,000 228,000 ppm
magnesium 3,715 -7,002 ppm
tocopherol 57 ppm (Vit E)
tryptophan, lysine, and other amino acids

I can also add that I have taken quite a bit of flax seed oil without any harm or unwanted side effects. Jim Duke's book "The Green Pharmacy" also includes flax seed and flax seed oil.

Re: Janise from Los Angeles, I am a student about to graduate with a B.S. in Dietetics (on my way to becoming a Registered Dietitian) and I actually just covered this subject: Alpha Linoleic Acid is Omega 3 essential fatty acid. Omega 6 is what we consume too much of in the Western diet and it is what interferes with the function of Omega 3. Naturally we are supposed to consume these two essential fatty acids in a 2:1 ratio, but in our diet the ratio is closer to 20:1. Due to the elevated Omega 6, all those symptoms that you mentioned (i.e. inflammation) are actually aggravated. Omega 3 (alpha linoleic acid) is very important and very beneficial, as it is important for the composition of tissues, membrane phospholipids, retinal photoreceptors, cerebral gray matter, testes and sperm. It also produces eicosapentaenoic acid and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). Studies have shown that increased consumption of omega 3 fatty acid improves a number of conditions and promotes general health. In summary, flaxseed oil is good for you. Your argument appears to be the opposite of what health professionals advocate.

Dr. Barry Sears has not been awarded a Nobel Prize. His theories were inspired, in part, by the 1982 Nobel Prize-winning research surrounding eicanosoids. This was NOT Dr. Sears' research.

Flaxseed oil is used to make linolium {lino used as a floor covering} Lino is oxidized linseed oil. Flaxseed/Linseed is a highly volatile oil (oxidises easily). If you must use it, only buy cold pressed oil in a dark bottle and store it in your refrigerator. Throw out any unused linseed oil after 3 weeks. Otherwise you will just be making lino on your blood vessels. The most volatile oil of all, is canola oil. The most stable oil is coconut oil.

Hi Spring, Flaxseed is very high in phytoestrogen even higher than soya 3x, and estrogen dominance leads to a lot of problems in both men & women. Somebody in Canada analyzed the estrogen content of of foods. A lot of pesticides & virtually all plastic contains estrogens so we are are bombarded with estrogens because soya is just about in every product & camouflaged with very fancy names to confuse you.

I am willing to bet a yearly income that that was a medical person responding to that flaxseed cure. You use the oils, I use the seeds, organic i might add, then i grind them up and add them to all kinds of foods. It is healthy for the body to have 3 bowel movements every day. I struggled with that for years. Not any more. A few tablespoons in my cottage cheese and waalaa. It's poopy time. Lol not just like that, but it will work it's way to let you know, hey: it's time. It is not a right now kind of thing. Sometimes it's all day before i sit down to go. This is another of the best ways to remove those bad things left in the body. Also, eat as organically as you can. It cost a bit more, but your life is priceless. You are worth all the effort. Trust me.
