    I remember the first time I had a cigarette. It was a Kool, purchased surreptitiously from the candy shop across the street from McKinley School. The year was 1969 and I was eight years old. Yes, I said eight! It used to be cool to smoke. My girlfriends and I would pretend we were in the teachers’ lounge (remember those?). By the time I got to college, I switched to clove cigarettes. And then afterwards, Marlboro Lights. I was up to a pack and a half a day by the time I stopped smoking. At the age of 30. This means that I smoked, on and off, for 22 years.

    Inflammation. It’s our bodies’ revenge in response to daily habits and exposure to stressors. Left unchecked, an increase in inflammatory markers in the bloodstream significantly increases the risk for chronic diseases and death. Increasingly, researchers are pointing to psychological distress — factors like hostility and depression — as playing a key role in inflammation. Yet, there is a silver lining to this story: positivity. In fact, Penn State researchers are reporting that they have found evidence supporting an association between mental wellbeing (e.g. positive…

Well I have a faulty mutation of the BRCA2 gene, which means that I am high risk of getting ovarian or breast cancer.

Oestrogen is responsible for generating collagen, without oestrogen the body stops making this vital protein, causing loss of firmness, dryness and wrinkles. Any well formulated anti-ageing cream on the market today will include such ingredients as peptides to encourage collagen proliferation, hyaluronic acid to increase moisture levels and good quality base oils for their native nutritional value.

    Cynthia Bailey, M.D.

      Skin sun spots, also called solar lentigines (solar lentigo if it is just one spot) are common. In my dermatology practice, I am asked every day by my patients to help them fade or get rid of their unwanted sun spots. There are a number of “tricks” and tips that we use to do this. Because sun spots are so tenacious, the best results come from an “all of the above” approach to controlling sun spots. That means using a combination of: prevention (to stop the development of new spots or darkening of existing spots) skin care products that fade existing spots procedures…

  • What Causes Sunspots on Skin?

    Cynthia Bailey, M.D.
    8 Sep 2014 | 9:00 am
    Sunspots on skin, called solar lentigines, are due to sun exposure. They are flat brown spots that show up on the parts of your skin that have been exposed to the sun. Once you start getting sunspot on skin, expect them to darken and increase in number with every UV ray that hits your skin. Any UV ray from the sun will darken your sunspots. Yes, that means that even the sun that comes through windows, that bounces off cement or water, or that passes through clouds will worsen your sunspots. What about tanning beds – can you outwit the process by tanning using unnatural UV light? No,…

    Here’s what boron expert, Walter Last, has to say about supplementing with boron to treat and cure menopause…Research has now shown that boron supplementation in postmenopausal women doubles the blood level of the most active form of oestrogen, 17-beta oestradiol, to the level found in women on oestrogen replacement therapy. Equally, the blood levels of testosterone more than doubled. With HRT there is a higher risk of breast or endometrial cancer which is not known to happen with hormones produced by the body as with borax supplementation.
