Your need for supplements depends on many factors. Your age, the quality of your diet, and your state of health will all be factors to consider. For example, if your diet consists of whole foods, organically grown, with very little processed or packaged food, and a wide range of fresh fruits and vegetables, then you will be getting many valuable antioxidants and vitamins from your diet. Include some calcium sources, clean protein products, and healthy fats and your diet may be perfect. In that case you may be fine with just a vitamin D3 supplement whenever you are not exposed to significant sunlight. Remember that organic produce contains significantly more vitamins and antioxidants than commercially grown, agribusiness produce. The extra cost will be recouped in your need for less supplements

Beauty Beyond Skin Deep

You really need to be aware in this modern world. The old adage that ‘Beauty is only skin deep’  has taken on a new meaning, when we consider the lotions and potions that are riddled with mainly unnecessary and dangerous chemicals. Beauty Therapists used to think the dangerous beauty applications that the ancients used were long past, but though the corruption of the few vested interests in the chemical industry, cosmetics are now more hazardous than they ever were.

Cosmetics are More than Skin Deep

(NaturalNews) Lotion, deodorant, hair spray, nail polish, sunscreen … . Most of us spend at least some amount of time pouring, scrubbing, patting, and lathering our way into a cleaner, softer hair, skin, and body. We can’t pronounce some of the ingredients in the products we lather on, but they are on the shelves of our most popular stores. Doesn’t that mean they’re safe to use? During any one day of our lives millions of people are using products that contain hundreds of chemicals that have not been approved for our safety by our regulatory institutions. Some of these same additives, however, actually have been proven unsafe.

But its not only cosmetics that are causing a serious counter argument to the unchecked pursuit of Beauty and Health

Gender-bender chemicals causing early puberty in girls

“Endocrine disrupting” chemicals that mimic or interfere with the body’s natural sex hormones are partially responsible for early puberty in girls, according to a study conducted by researchers from Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York.

In tests, girls with the highest concentrations of some of the substances in their bodies tended to develop breasts and pubic hair earlier than those with the lowest levels. The average age of the onset of Puberty has significantly lowered to 10 years 3 months due to chemical hazards in daily life.

Cosmetics: Safe for You?

There is a toxic overload from the very products we use to keep ourselves looking good and feeling great. The American FDA and the UK  Food Standards Agency don’t even monitor many of the products we  use in everyday life. Who would put lead in lipstick, oil in herbal shampoo, hazards in our personal care products? Its not the choices we make in the shops; its a throw back to the 50s that believed scientifically advanced chemicals, which we don’t know much about, were good for us. But now we know better and we challenge the petro-chemical industry to explain or remove them.  If  the ingredients can’t be justified to consciously aware shoppers then why put them in? Reformulate the product for safety or prosecute the makers for crimes against humanity. There are resources online for checking ingredients, but common sense tells us to err on side of caution, not just with frequency of use of dangerous ingredients but combinations of these ingredients from many products. I am not advocating a return to testing on animals, since we are of the animal kingdom also. What I am suggesting is the addition of  known carcinogenic ingredients in products should be removed now and never considered for any future personal care products.

Pure Dead Sea Salt: nothing added nor removed

The Dead Sea is a saline lake in the Jordan valley, which is 76 km long and up to 17 km wide. It is 365 meters in depth. and located 400 meters (1,300 feet) below sea level. This is lowest point on the surface of the earth, and it came into being under the tectonic activity of the area.

Over many thousands of years Dead Sea Salt (DSS) has become legendary for its curative and beautifying properties. Compared to ordinary table salt which contains only sodium and chloride, DSS contains at least 21 minerals in high concentration, 12 of which are not found in any other sea salt. In fact it contains in a sample 10 times the amount of salt than the Mediterranean or Great Salt Lakes equivalents.


This wealth of minerals, such as Magnesium are known to accelerate cell metabolism for amazing skin healing properties, detoxification, skin nourishment and relief from inflammation, wounds and pain. DSS and Epsom Salts (Magnesium Sulphate) soaks are the safest way to replace Magnesium loss as it is taken up through the skin which as the largest organ of the body. Some other minerals in DSS include Calcium, Sulphur Trioxide, Bromide, Chloride, Iodine, Zinc, with Sodium, Aluminium, Titanium, Potassium oxides and Phosphorus Pentoxide.


The Jewish historian Josephus Flavius writing in the first century AD recommended Dead Sea bath salt to his Roman audience: “The Dead Sea can not be praised too highly…travellers take as much of this salt as they are able to home with them, because it heals the human body and is therefore used in many medicines.

The beautiful Cleopatra, Queen of Egypt was esteemed for her magically youthful good looks throughout her whole life, even as she aged. The real secret to the beauty of her silky skin was the anti ageing effect of these bath salts, mud and cosmetics made with Dead Sea salt. This was gathered for her at the factories she had built on the shores of the Dead Sea. The ruins of those sites can still be seen today at Erin Brooke and Erin Geed and they stand as testimonials to the ageless beauty secret of Dead Sea salt.


Recent research on Dead Sea salt studied its effects on patients suffering from Psoriasis. Dr. J. Arndt, made a study on fifty patients treated with Dead Sea salts aged between 14 and 77 years old. Patients were treated with 3-4 DSS baths per week for 3 weeks. Results show that majority of the symptoms were significantly diminished within the first week of treatment. Steady improvements were observed in the following weeks. The most important alleviation was from the itching associated with Psoriasis, while relief from sleep disturbances were also noted. More than half (54%) of the patients were totally healed while 22 cases showed markedly impressive improvements.


Salt extracted from the Dead Sea is a popular ingredient of many common bath products including bath salts, scrubs, foot scrubs, body wraps, bath bombs and soaps and a wide variety of other cosmetic products including, mud packs and make-up.


You too can benefit from from this beauty therapeutic buy unrefined Dead Sea Salt and try the recipes for a bath soak that follow. Not only will your skin feel great and look good but muscle tone is improved, and dry skin, wrinkles and dandruff are ameliorated. I would especially recommend this spa soak treatment for Anxiety and Stress of modern life. While other claims for the healing power of this unique product include Eczema, Acne, Cellulite, Osteo-Arthritis and Rheumatoid conditions.
