When did those wrinkles around your eyes deepen, and is that your grandmother’s papery thin neck skin developing under your chin?
Some might feel the advancement of years equals never-ending physical decay. But instead of resigning yourself to wearing sunglasses and turtlenecks forever – try instead “youth building” through Inclusive Health®.
Our friend and famed dermatologist, Howard Murad, M.D., F.A.A.D., discovered that the aging process causes cell membranes to lose elasticity and release vital intracellular moisture. That moisture is the base for a robust body as demonstrated through firmer skin, healthy hearts and even lush hair.
Dr. Murad’s “youth building” methods slow the aging process and even reverse several. His enthusiasm for Inclusive Health® is contagious and available for everyone, of any age, willing to modify their lifestyle.
His “pitcher of health”, broken into six levels, delivers easy to apply dietary advice that includes healthy fats, like olive oil, for brain stimulation and supplements that spur collagen repair.
An increased water intake is key to looking better, but instead of sipping it, Dr. Murad wants us to restore moisture depletion by eating more water-laden fruits and vegetables.
Restore moisture depletion with options such as watermelon, tomatoes and red cabbage, in addition to carrots, spinach and broccoli. Enjoy them raw or in this Turkey Scramble recipe. Many foods, like blueberries, are also powerhouses of good health loaded with age-defying antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties.
Joining the blueberry, pomegranates also rank high is protecting cell damage from the sun and other environmental hazards such as pollution and high humidity.
Dr. Murad also wants us to reach our full potential with an attitude tune up.
Focus on life’s positive aspects instead of allowing negative thoughts to fester on your manner and manifest on your appearance.
The results of looking, living and feeling better provides the continual motivation to modify your life with healthy options.
