Good Oils For Dry Skin


“Dry skin is a classic sign of your body’s need for essential fatty acids, the “good” oils like oils from fish or seeds and nuts.”

 If you can rub your arm and a small amount of friction causes skin to slough off, what should you do? Dry skin can range from mild to severe, slightly uncomfortable to very painful. Sure you can use moisturizers and lotions, but many contain toxic chemicals which are absorbed through your skin. Lotions can provide temporary relief, but they definitely don’t fix the problem.

Dry skin is a classic sign of your body’s need for essential fatty acids, the “good” oils like oils from fish or seeds and nuts. We become deficient because our diet may not include enough good oils. Don’t feel too bad, many people lack essential fatty acids until they learn how to add them to foods and how to  supplement regularly.Good Oils For Dry Skin

Knowing how much and how often to supplement is important too. Here’s an example. My brother-in-law Jerold supplements regularly with Biomega-3 Liquid, a pleasant lemon flavored fish oil that’s easy to take. He  was taking a tablespoon daily for overall health and prevention. But the winter temperatures caused him to experience dry and cracked fingers. He said his fingers were so rough that when he tied his necktie, the silk would fray due to his cracked fingers. So in addition to his daily dose of 1 tablespoon, he added an extra” tablespoon of Biomega-3 Liquid daily on a salad. In 2 weeks the cracks were gone. Once he reached sufficiency he cut back to 1 tablespoon daily.

Here’s a similar story. A friend I’ve known for 18 years recently told me how he was addicted to lip balm. He used it every winter as long as he could remember. His lips got so chapped he never went anywhere without chapstick. He began to show an interest in wellness and about two years ago he started taking essential fatty acids regularly a blend of oils rich in Omega-3, 6 and 9’s. One wintry day he observed someone applying lip balm, he suddenly thought to himself I haven’t used lip balm for two winters! Even though he was taking essential fatty acids for vascular health, to his surprise, essential fatty acids prevented dry chapped lips.

I have heard plenty of stories how essential fatty acids in the right dose have helped dry skin, but I hope you get the point. Your skin can tell you a lot, if you pay attention. Your body has approximately 100 trillion cells. Each cell is surrounded by a thin barrier like membrane. Essential fatty acids help to keep that membrane soft and permeable, meaning healthy nutrients can get into the cells and toxins can  leave. A deficiency of good oils can cause the cell membrane to become “sluggish.” Not only will nutrients have trouble getting in, many of the everyday toxins we are exposed to can become trapped in the cell.

If your cells are unhealthy, you will be too. We can clean and revive our cells by feeding them what they need. Beyond cell membranes, essential fatty acids are needed for hormones, immune function, pain and inflammation reduction, blood sugar stabilization as well as healthy heart and blood vessel function.

Good Oils For Dry SkinEssential fatty acids and particularly fish oil is the number one class of anti-aging supplements. You can order essential fatty acids directly from your clinic right here on this page. To get started try Biomega-3 Liquid, popular because of its pleasant lemon flavor.

What’s Your Dry Skin Telling You?


When your skin is dry, chapped or cracking, your body is talking to you. Are you listening? Dry skin can range from mild to severe, slightly uncomfortable to very painful. So what should you do? Sure you can use moisturizers and lotions, but many contain chemicals which are absorbed into your skin; and ultimately, they only provide temporary relief. They don’t fix the real problem. Your body is signaling outwardly that there is an internal problem. Dry skin is a classic sign of an essential fatty acid need. Good Oils For Dry Skin

Essential fatty acids are the good oils like fish oils or oils from seeds and nuts. We become deficient because our diet may not include enough of these oils. Don’t feel too bad, many people lack these essential fatty acids until they learn how to add them to foods and how to supplement regularly.

Knowing how much and how often to supplement is important too. Here’s an example. My patient Jerold supplements regularly with Biomega-3 Liquid, a pleasant lemon flavored fish oil that’s easy to take. If you’ve seen other Wellness Minutes, you may remember it was Biomega-3 Liquid that helped our  neighborhood friend with migraines and Kevin’s chronic back pain.

So my patient Jerold was taking a tablespoon daily for overall health and prevention. But the winter temperatures caused him to experience dry and cracked fingers. He said his fingers were so rough that when he tied his necktie, the silk would fray due to his cracked fingers. So in addition to the tablespoon he was taking in the morning, he added an “extra” tablespoon of Biomega-3 Liquid on a salad every day. In 2 weeks the cracks were gone. Once he reached sufficiency he cut back to one tablespoon daily.

Here’s a similar story how regular long term use of essential fatty acids worked internally to correct dry skin. A friend I’ve known for 18 years recently told me how he was addicted to lip balm. He used it every winter as long as he could remember. His lips got so chapped he couldn’t get through a winter without it. He began to show an interest in wellness, and about two years ago he started taking essential fatty acids regularly. Two years later, one wintry day, he observed someone applying lip balm. It suddenly occurred to him for the last two winters he hadn’t needed lip balm. Even though he was taking essential fatty acids for vascular health, to his surprise, it prevented dry chapped lips.

I have heard lots of stories how essential fatty acids in the right dose have helped dry skin, but I hope you get the point. Your skin can tell you a lot if you pay attention. Your body has approximately 100 trillion cells. Each cell is covered by a thin membrane layer. Essential fatty acids help to keep the cell membrane soft and permeable, meaning healthy nutrients can get into the cells and toxins can leave.

A deficiency of good oils can cause the cell membrane to become “sluggish.” Not only will nutrients have trouble getting in, but natural waste products and toxins an become trapped in the cell. Your cells experience what I would call for lack of a better term “cellular constipation.” We can get our cells working again by feeding them what they need.

Beyond cell membranes, essential fatty acids are needed for hormones, immune function, pain and inflammation reduction, blood sugar stabilization, healthy heart and blood vessel function. Essential fatty acids and particularly fish oil are the number one class of anti-aging supplements.

The Value of High Dose Fish Oil


“Three weeks after he started the large does, his hands became more nimble and had so much flexibility that he could easily open and close them.”

 

I’d like to share a story about someone who took fish oils capsules for years, but just didn’t get the results they were hoping for. It’s the story of a 51 year old male we will call Kevin, who drives a truck by day and rides and ropes horses after work and on weekends.

 

He has had a serious history of back pain in fact has had two spinal surgeries that left him in constant pain. For years his pain was so bad that each morning he had to stumble to the shower and let the moist heat relax his muscles to the point where he could function without pain. He also had a condition called trigger finger, in that he couldn’t close his hands all the way due to the inflammation in his hands.

 

He has a family history of heart disease and elevated cholesterol and triglycerides. He’s not over weight, and he’s never followed any type of therapeutic diet. He had tried various nutritional supplements faithfully and, as I said, was taking 2-4 fish oil capsules a day for years. His condition was stable, uncomfortable but stable, that is until about 3 months ago when his life changed forever.

 

His wife happens to be a nutritionist and was aware of a new product from Biotics Research called Biomega-3 Liquid. The maintenance dose is a teaspoon which is 1,400 mg of Omega-3 fatty acids from small fish like anchovies and sardines. It tasted so good, Kevin took 2 tablespoons which is a whopping 8,400 mg of Omega-3 fatty acids. I mean, one tablespoon is 4,200 mg. Most of the current research supports 3,000-5,000 mg a day to reduce pain and inflammation for chronic cases. But he took 2, one tablespoon with breakfast and one tablespoon before bed.

 

Three weeks after he started the large dose, his hands became more nimble and had so much flexibility that he could easily open and close them. Then his back loosened up and he had longer and longer pain free periods, until he was completely pain free. He enjoyed this freedom from pain for about a month and decided, as we often do, to stop the things which bring us relief. We get a little lazy… sound familiar?

 

About a month later the pain and restriction in his hands came back. Kevin realized he had stopped taking the oil so he began once again taking the therapeutic dose. Much to his surprise in a few days his back pain and the inflammation in his hands was gone.

 

Yes, this is a case of one; however, physicians have seen great results with higher doses of fish oils, especially for serious cases. Medical journals report gene protective benefits, less death from cardiovascular disease, and up to 62% lower risk of fatal heart attack. The evidence for high dose Omega-3 from fish is strong and in Kevin’s case a high dose made all the difference.

 

Biomega-3 is a liquid, rather than a capsule. The liquid has a pleasant lemon flavor. I believe the tasting of the oils has a therapeutic benefit. Dr. George Goodheart, one of my mentors, said for years that the tasting of nutrients has a hypothalamic connection and will increase absorption and utilization dramatically. Biomega-3 Liquid is a natural pure fish oil concentrate and can have beneficial compounds for brain, cardiovascular, inflammation, and healthy skin.

 

Now keep in mind, Biomega-3 is classified as an Omega-3. With natural oils, I recommend rotating Omega-3 oils with other oil blends so your body gets Omega-3, Omega-6, and Omega-9 as well. But if you’ve been taking fish oil capsules and you still have pain, ask Dr. Godo for more details about Biomega-3 Liquid.

 

Kevin’s story reminds us of the value of high dose fish oils. For some people, it can be life changing.

Simple Headache Treatment With Dramatic Results


“She explained that her headache was gone by the beginning of the third hour, and she only needed two doses.”

 

Here’s a story about a mom who had crippling headaches and how a simple treatment had quick results. A mom, who lives in our neighborhood, was on her second day of blinding, migraine pain when our paths crossed. She explained to me how difficult it was to manage three small boys when she had to be in complete quiet and darkness.

 

She was wincing as she related her situation. I felt so bad for her; I gave her a bottle of Biomega-3 liquid and suggested she try taking 1 tablespoon an hour for 3 hours. I learned of the “tablespoon an hour technique” from a doctor in California but had never tried it. Each teaspoon of Biomega-3 liquid has 1400 mg of EPA/DHA so a tablespoon would yield 4200 mg of EPA/DHA. That’s a lot of Omega-3 oils. I knew that high levels of Omega-3 fatty acids can have dramatic anti-inflammatory properties and that if she was consuming the standard American diet, which she was, chances were pretty good that the fish oil could break the cycle.

 

I explained that it may cause diarrhea to consume so much fat quickly but even the diarrhea may help to reduce toxins that the colon may be harboring. I wanted her to know that a good “clean out” is okay and actually might be very therapeutic.

 

Since I was giving her the oil for free, I asked her to let me know what happened. For several months I never heard from her so I figured it didn’t work. This week I saw her down the street with her 3 boys and was able to ask her some details. She explained that her headache was gone by the beginning of the third hour, and she only needed 2 doses.

 

She had had another bout of migraines the following month, and she used the Biomega-3 liquid again and it worked equally as well. Obviously I told her that it worked because she is so deficient in healthy Omega 3 oils, and she needs to take some every day to build up her organ reserves.

 

The goal for all of us is to reduce what I call “systemic levels of inflammation.” Fortunately, the high dose fish oil worked for her; but I suggested she look at some of the other factors that could be  causing inflammation. Consuming foods she may be allergic to like gluten or dairy, eating foods high in hydrogenated oils, consuming too much fructose or MSG can all add to elevated levels of systemic inflammation.

 

We all read bits and pieces of information or hear advice about our health, but it really helps to be accountable to someone. Work with Dr. Godo and make a plan, one that you can live with.

 

One way to monitor your progress is to take the Nutri-Q test and follow the recommendations for 90 days then retake the test. You will be surprised by how much better you feel when you apply wellness principles daily and take a few nutrients to restore or rebuild your nutrient organ reserves.

 

It’s nice to hear dramatic results like the mom with migraine headaches, but isn’t it better to experience continued health and avoid those inflammatory moments all together? Let’s not wait until we are at the edge of our health cliff before we make changes. Let’s get healthy… so healthy that our family and friends ask us what are doing to look and feel so alive.

What’s Your Dry Skin Telling You?


What’s Your Dry Skin Telling You?

When your skin is dry, chapped or cracking, your body is talking to you. Are you listening? Dry skin can range from mild to severe, slightly uncomfortable to very painful. So what should you do? Sure you can use moisturizers and lotions, but many contain chemicals which are absorbed into your skin; and ultimately, they only provide temporary relief. They don’t fix the real problem. Your body is signaling outwardly that there is an internal problem. Dry skin is a classic sign of an essential fatty acid need.

Essential fatty acids are the good oils like fish oils or oils from seeds and nuts. We become deficient because our diet may not include enough of these oils. Don’t feel too bad, many people lack these essential fatty acids until they learn how to add them to foods and how to supplement regularly.

Knowing how much and how often to supplement is important too. Here’s an example. My patient Jerold supplements regularly with Biomega-3 Liquid, a pleasant lemon flavored fish oil that’s easy to take. If you’ve seen other Wellness Minutes, you may remember it was Biomega-3 Liquid that helped our  neighborhood friend with migraines and Kevin’s chronic back pain.

So my patient Jerold was taking a tablespoon daily for overall health and prevention. But the winter temperatures caused him to experience dry and cracked fingers. He said his fingers were so rough that when he tied his necktie, the silk would fray due to his cracked fingers. So in addition to the tablespoon he was taking in the morning, he added an “extra” tablespoon of Biomega-3 Liquid on a salad every day. In 2 weeks the cracks were gone. Once he reached sufficiency he cut back to one tablespoon daily.

Here’s a similar story how regular long term use of essential fatty acids worked internally to correct dry skin. A friend I’ve known for 18 years recently told me how he was addicted to lip balm. He used it every winter as long as he could remember. His lips got so chapped he couldn’t get through a winter without it. He began to show an interest in wellness, and about two years ago he started taking essential fatty acids regularly. Two years later, one wintry day, he observed someone applying lip balm. It suddenly occurred to him for the last two winters he hadn’t needed lip balm. Even though he was taking essential fatty acids for vascular health, to his surprise, it prevented dry chapped lips.

I have heard lots of stories how essential fatty acids in the right dose have helped dry skin, but I hope you get the point. Your skin can tell you a lot if you pay attention. Your body has approximately 100 trillion cells. Each cell is covered by a thin membrane layer. Essential fatty acids help to keep the cell membrane soft and permeable, meaning healthy nutrients can get into the cells and toxins can leave.

A deficiency of good oils can cause the cell membrane to become “sluggish.” Not only will nutrients have trouble getting in, but natural waste products and toxins an become trapped in the cell. Your cells experience what I would call for lack of a better term “cellular constipation.” We can get our cells working again by feeding them what they need.

Beyond cell membranes, essential fatty acids are needed for hormones, immune function, pain and inflammation reduction, blood sugar stabilization, healthy heart and blood vessel function. Essential fatty acids and particularly fish oil are the number one class of anti-aging supplements.

You can order essential fatty acids through our clinic right here at the bottom of this page. Click and get started. You’ll like Biomega-3 Liquid fish oil, because it has a subtle pleasant lemon flavor. Start with one tablespoon daily. If you don’t see results, add another tablespoon.

It’s good to rotate oils, so you may also try the Mixed EFAs, a blend of oils from seeds and nuts. Start with one tablespoon daily. It’s odorless and tasteless, so you can also apply it topically as a comforting healthy moisturizer that’s safe for your skin to absorb.

If you need more help, give me a call at the clinic (773) 525-0007. When our skin is healthy we feel better and even look younger. Make sure you are getting the essential fatty acids your body needs for healthier, younger looking skin.
