    My Amazing Recovery from an Unintentioned Fall!

    OMG – I forgot to place my computer bag under the table at Kathleen Gage’s workshop last week, got up to get coffee and SPLAT!!  I landed on the right side of my leg and twisted my foot under heels that I should not have been wearing.

    Embarrassing?  Oh, YES!  Painful?  DOUBLE YES!!!  Most of the day was spent at the workshop with ice on my propped up leg.  To leave at the end I had some wonderful help from 2 lovely participants and I went on to Beaverton to my healing session with Master Soul. read more -->

    Preventing the Causes of Aging and Protecting our Cells

    Q: What are some key causes of aging and what you can tell us about YOUTH Skin Care and how it helps?

    What comes to mind is the science behind YOUTH; one of the key aspects is that it’s formulated to address the key causes of aging. Our skin is constantly under assault from the environment, and free radical damage accelerates aging of our skin. So to be effective you have to have a technology that protects the skin against those assaults. But in addition, a lot of the latest anti-aging science revolves around the skin’s regenerative processes. When you look deeper, our skin produces collagen and elastin; these are proteins in the skin that keep our skin supple, keep it firm, and prevent wrinkles from forming. But after the age of 20 our skin produces less collagen and elastin every year, and over the course of a lifetime that has a dramatic impact on our skin. Up to 80 percent of the thickness of our skin is lost as we age. So if there is a way to intervene in that loss as we age, we have a really effective scientific approach—and we did just that. read more -->
