There are many non-surgical “face-lift” options out there such as laser, botox and peels. Acupuncture has been around for centuries to treat a myriad of health problems and is sworn on by many. Women who were going in for treatments for non-superficial health concerns often have noticed (or started to be told) how much younger their skin and face look. In recent years, acupuncture is now becoming a way to regain youthful skin via a needle that has nothing to do with fillers and everything to do with internal systems.
In traditional chinese medicine, each part of the body is connected to another part and same goes with your face. The skin color is connected to your blood flow, the skin texture connected to the lung system and so forth. Unfortunately, it is not a quick fix, being suggested that one does about 30 sessions at about 3 per week, at approximately 30 minutes each. A beautiful lifestyle internally and externally is something to achieve throughout your life, so if considering this treatment don’t worry about the time it takes as it is minimal compared to lasting health and feeling good about yourself inside and out. Think about it being for both the inner healthier you and outer you - something that a surgical facelift or botox does not offer.

I may be waking up on the other side of the world but my thoughts are of Manhattan today. List of names, friends of friends, called at 8.46am and tribute in light at sunset. 13 years on the site is open again first time for the anniversary. Thinking of all the families. Ring out bells of remembrance today.

Not All Coconut Water is Created Equal: Read the labels, read the labels, read the labels. As with almost all packaged and store-bought goods, great marketing and a beautiful package with words like “All natural” bare very little meaning when it comes to what your food is actually made of when you take the time to read and learn the ingredients . ***** Same goes for coconut water.
DON’T: Drink heat pasteurized coconut water. Coconut water is meant to be cold, so heat pasteurized boxes can sit outside on a shelf. These are usually cardboard boxes and can only be kept un-refridgerated because they have been heat pasteurized which ALSO means that most of the nutritional benefits of the coconut water have actually been essentially burned away.
DRINK ORGANIC: It has been reported that some non-organic coconuts are dipped in chemicals including formaldehyde (a carcinogenic) so that they can be preserved when being transported into the United States.
SKIP: Added Sugars and “natural flavors”. The term “natural flavors” is one of the loosest in the FDA book and can be termed as many different ingredients that most would agree do not actually sound natural at all. Skip juices from concentrate, usually have sugar.
