Skin care and Adiponectin revisited

I've been getting a newsletter from a Doctor Nan Fuchs. She is selling face creams but her latest email gives some insights on why the creams on the market don't quite work as well as they say they do.

First there is gasoline in most of them. Just look at the list of ingredients, do you see petroleum or fragrance on it? There you go gasoline....and it's harsh and drying to skin. Can you say wrinkles?

Next look for Surfactants, it is....wait for it....SOAP! It strips the outter, protective layer of the skin. Remember we talked before on how soap isn't good for skin and how the skin is our first layer of defense against infectious diseases. see: how does the immune system work.

I remember laughing at my grandmother because she said she didn't use any soaps on her face and then later I realized that soap will cause skin to dry and split. Also everything on the skin has a tendancy to soak in and become part of us. I certainly do not want any antibiotics creating any superbugs around OR IN me!

Dr. Nan Fuchs wrote
Because soaps are so effective at removing the protective barrier of the skin, cosmetics manufacturers like to sneak them in whenever they can. They may disguise them by using the chemical name, but all the names will include some form of "sulphate." Two of the most commonly used soaps are sodium lauryl sulphate and ammonium lauryl sulphate, found in many detergents and shampoos. However, any ingredient that ends in "sulphate" should raise your suspicions!
More ingredients your skin care should never include:
~Ethanolamines (Monoethanolamine aka MEA, Diethanolamine aka DEA, Triethanolamine aka TEA): common pH stabilizers; when exposed to oxygen/air form nitrosoamines, which may be irritating and/or toxic.
~Mineral oil: petroleum derived hydrocarbons; used as inexpensive base in some products. Blocks pores and interferes with normal skin function.
~Synthetic Colors: These serve no useful purpose, and may be dangerous for long-term use. Usually labeled as FD&C or D&C, followed by a color and a number, e.g. FD&C Red No. 6 or D&C Green No.6.
~Parabens (e.g. Methyl, Ethyl, Propyl and Butyl Paraben): Used as preservatives; inhibit microbial growth and extend shelf life of products. Methyl paraben eventually degrades, releasing methanol, a potentially toxic chemical. Most people don't have an obvious skin reaction to parabens.
For decades, women have been duped into applying detergent to our precious skin, and letting it sit there for hours! Worse, we've been duped into believing we were doing the right thing.
So while trying to protect and nourish your skin, you were unwittingly stripping precious moisture and destroying our perfectly healthy skin cells! And the bad news doesn't stop there, because... You're "Cleaning" Your Face with Chemicals!

Also... I've been reading up on Adiponectin [See: key to obesity discovered a bit more too and have found this fat controlling hormone is found less in those who are already overweight and those who are diabetic. Adiponectin as you may remember; is a protein hormone that modulates a number of metabolic processes, including glucose regulation and fatty acid catabolism. Adiponectin is exclusively secreted from adipose tissue into the bloodstream and is very abundant in plasma relative to many hormones. The less a person weighs the more adiponectin they have in their systems it seems. The hormone plays a role in the suppression of the metabolic derangements that may result in type 2 diabetes, obesity, atherosclerosis and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease.
Adiponectin exerts some of its weight reduction effects via the brain. This is similar to the action of leptin, but the two hormones perform complementary actions, and can have additive effects.

Leptin given to obese mice aided in weight loss. Leptin concentrations are low in people and animals with low body fat, and leptin appears to be a significant regulator of reproductive function.

Conclusion: Adiponectin and leptin are necessary for weight and glucosec management ands apparently Leptin is necessary for reproductive function. It may be one reason why younger women might be more capable of reproduction and find weight loss easier. Because as we all know Hormones are not manufactured in older bodies as readily as in younger bodies. Also if one is healthier to begin with, i.e. younger, having had less exposure to chemical contaminents; both fertility and weight loss are easier to achieve. It's not fair? Well of course not, but health has no age barrier, I'm definately a witness to that. Of course since I've been taking CellPower™ cellpower~natural cures,natural alternative medicine,body rescue alkalizing,most alkalizing,alkalizing drops,body ph health<br />natural healing,cell health,oxygenate,cellpower,detoxify, I have been getting healthier by leaps and bounds. And you can too.

Also I'm taking FLAX SEED OIL for my colon, but of course FLAX SEED OIL is also a great source of omega-3 essential fatty acids. AND
conjugated linoleic acid~CLA
CLA improves body composition by reducing body fat while preserving muscle tissue, an omega-6 fatty acid to promote better health.

If you feel you have received your teenaged daughter in error:

To determine whether you were supposed to receive a teenaged girl, please examine your new daughter carefully. Does she:

a) Look very similar to your original daughter, only with more makeup and less clothing?

b) Refuse to acknowledge your existence on the planet Earth (except when requesting money)?

c) Sleep in a burrow of dirty laundry?

If any of these are true, you have received the correct item. Nice try, though.


To activate your teenaged daughter, simply place her in the vicinity of a telephone or Instant Messenger. No further programming is required.


Your teenaged daughter requires regular meals, which must be purchased for her at restaurants, because she detests everything you eat because it is like so disgusting. She does not want you to accompany her to these restaurants, because some people might see you and like I'm sure I want my friends to see me eating dinner with my parents. Either order take-out food or just give her the money, preferably both. If you order pizza, never answer the doorbell because the delivery boy might see you and Ohmigod he is so hot. Yes, your daughter's idea of an attractive man is the pizza boy.

Have a day marked by vigorous health and financial abundance.
