Home Made Tomato Sauce

I made this tomato sauce the other day as we have an excess of tomato’s ¬†in our garden. Pasquale cooks his over a fire. I did not – I used the stove. I did stick to the recipe and cooking time, that was an exception for me as I can’t help adding a bit of this and a bit of that. Staying with his recipe proved to be the only way. It smelt fantastic while cooking and taste is what I have been looking for a long time. I did the separation of skin and pulp with a colander with big holes. I just swished it around till only the skins were left in the colander.¬†

Any way if you want the real thing you should try it. It is time-consuming I have to admit but the taste was ‘excelento’

Dermatologist Recommendation – A Good Water Machineūüí¶

“When tap water contains a high concentration of minerals like magnesium, lead, and zinc, it’s known as hard water ‚ÄĒ and the minerals can leave a film on skin that causes dryness. “Heavy metals turn the oils on skin into a thick substance that plugs glands, aggravates conditions like acne and rosacea, and prevents moisturizers from being absorbed into the skin,” says Dennis Gross, MD, a dermatologist in New York City. “Investing in a home filtration system will lighten the mineral content of water, and Gross recommends adding chelators, like vitamins A and C, to skin care because they counteract the coating deposited by hard water.”
Kangen Water machines have proved to be more than adequate ¬†for producing hydrating, ionized, ¬†alkaline water. The machine is manufactured ¬†in Japan by a company called ‘Enagic’ ¬†that is 40 years old, ¬† that in itself speaks for the fact in this day in age that it has a good reputation and product.

Common drugs can halt the progression of skin cancer

I read this article today online from the Australian Courier Mail. I thought it was rather interesting and hopefully promising for anyone that has developed skin cancer.

 

COMMON anti-inflammatory drugs could stop skin cancers turning into deadly ulcerated melanomas, Queensland researchers have found.

A study by the Brisbane-based QIMR Berghofer Medical Research Institute has shown that regular use of some anti-inflammatory painkillers including aspirin and ibuprofen reduce the likelihood of melanomas becoming ulcerated and thus worsening survival odds.

Statins, a popular cholesterol lowering drug, were also found to lower the risk of the condition, with researchers suggesting this medication might ‚Äúmodify inflammatory mechanisms in the body that cause melanomas to become ulcerated.‚ÄĚ

Conversely, the 787-person study found that diabetes sufferers were at increased risk of developing ulcerated melanomas which occur when the top layer of skin disappears.

Lead researcher Lena von Schuckmann said further studies were needed, but the findings, published in the Journal of Investigative Dermatology, were ‚Äúreally exciting.‚ÄĚ

‚ÄúPotentially, down the track, we can find some causations and potentially find some modifiable risk factors for melanoma ulcerations,‚ÄĚ she said.

Meanwhile, a University of Queensland study released yesterday found that adding aspirin to some cancer drugs could boost their effectiveness.

The mouse study, published in journal Clinical Cancer Research, showed that mixing the painkiller with Sorafenib, a cancer inhibitor drug, ‚Äústrongly enhanced its effectiveness‚ÄĚ for treatment of lung cancer and melanomas with RAS genetic mutations.

Cancer Council Queensland chief executive Chris McMillian said ulcerated melanomas were associated with poorer survival outcomes because they were fast growing.

‚ÄúResearch into this area is vital to help us better understand how to detect and treat melanomas early to improve survival and reduce long-term effects on patients,‚ÄĚ she said.

‚ÄúIf you notice a new spot on your skin or a change in the size, shape or colour of a spot, it‚Äôs important to visit your GP as early detection saves lives.‚ÄĚ

Unusual Signs of Dehydration

As you know dehydration occurs when you body is lacking in water and other fluids to function in a healthy way. Dehydration can lead to blood clots, seizures and other complications also effects mood and of course energy. That is why it is essential that you keep your body hydrated.

Here are six surprising indicators that you might be dehydrated.

  1. Bad breath.¬†Saliva has antibacterial properties in it, but dehydration can prevent your body from making enough saliva.‚ÄúIf you‚Äôre not producing enough saliva in the mouth, you can get bacteria overgrowth and one of the side reactions of that is bad breath from chronic dehydration,‚ÄĚ says¬†John Higgins, MD,¬†associate professor of cardiovascular medicine at the University of Texas in Houston, and chief of cardiology at Lyndon B. Johnson General Hospital.
  2. Dry skin –¬†Dehydration can cause dizziness not allowing enough blood volume so you are inclined to get dry skin. Flushing of the skin is usually because dry skin is not evaporating as well as it should. Dehydration can also exist even if the climate is cooler, it is milder but proper hydration is necessary .
  3. Muscle cramps –¬†When you overheat it can cause muscle cramps if you are dehydrated as the muscles work harder and they seize up for the heat.
  4. Fever and chills – Dehydration can also cause symptoms of fever or chills. Fever can be dangerous so if the fever rises over 101 F be sure to seek medical advise.
  5. Food cravings, especially for sweets –¬†This can also be a sign of dehydration. Mistaking a craving that you are hungry but in fact you are dehydrated.¬†¬†The liver which use water to release some glycogens and other components of your energy stores, so you can actually get cravings for food especially something sweet or salty snacks as your body is experiencing difficulty with glycogen production.Instead of ¬†those sorts of snacks go for high water content food such as fruit, and vegetables, that will help you stay hydrated. Watermelon is a good example.
  6. Headaches –¬†Hydration is very important to keep the fluid sack that keeps your brain from injuring itself on the skull. As depletion of fluid can cause the brain to push up against parts of the skull and causing headaches. This can be quite debilitating so you need to be assured that Hydration is essential to complete healthy conditions.
  7. Yellow Urine –¬†Urine is low volume and more yellowish than normal.

Ionized water is one of the best ways to keep your body hydrated and alkaline. This is where I will introduce you to that complete water system of Kangen Water.

If you go to LIFECHANGING-WATER.COM. You will be able to find out all the information on this ionizing machine plus a free eBook on the subject.

Better Than Botox?

g_5_acb664ca-e82b-4379-83f1-e6034343cc5dfish_colagen

I have been getting articles from this great website called Draxe.com . You can actually sign up for free and get his articles, its worth it as he has some great information.

The article I am presenting you today is especially interesting to us girls although these days I am sure the boys would be interested as well.
Its all about fish collagen. Heard of it? I have heard of just plain collagen powder but not this. ‘Fish collagen is absorbed up to 1.5 times more efficiently into the body and has superior bioavailability over bovine or porcine collagens’.
Fish collagen can be absorbed at a higher level through the intestinal barrier into the bloodstream and carried throughout the body. This leads to collagen synthesis in the joint tissues, bones, skin dermis and many other essential body systems. Sounds like good stuff to me.

The health benefits of this collagen is
1. Anti aging
2. Helps regenerate and heal bones
3. Heals wounds
4. Increases your protein intake
5. Has antibacterial qualities

This collagen was first found about 1985 by a pharmacist extracting it from the skin of fish. Sometimes it can be called marine collagen but marine collagen could be extracted from shellfish and jellyfish which is not recommended so keep that in mind.

This protien comes from the scales, skin, bones and fins of fresh or saltwater fish and parts we do not normally eat like the eyes and the rest of the head. You can also get this protein through making a fish stock by boiling the whole of the fish (gutted). Fish collagen is high in essential and non-essential amino acids.

Anyway it all sounds good. I think I may make a face mask out of it see if it plumps up the wrinkles.
Will let you know.

Apparently it does not smell like fish so you don’t have to worry about the fishy smell on your face or food. Hydrolyzed fish collagen is the best as it is broken into small molecules and easily absorbed.
For me I think its worth giving a try.

If you want to read more about this go to Dr Axes website, sign up and get his news letters.

I have found a site on Amazon that sells this collagen – Fish Collagen – Amazon
