Summer Is Here! Tips On How Stay Healthy This Summer

 

Fourth of July is here and it’s hot as hell! The
sun rays can be a real bother if you are not
careful. Here are a few tips to keep you from
burning up and keeping your skin cancer-free.
Every so often, I’ll see someone baking on the
beach and, in a few years, their skin will look
like an old piece of leather. We all want to enjoy
our summer fun worry-free.

Eight tips on how to protect yourself from the sun
(written by Julie Daniluk):
1) Use a natural sunscreen: Studies show that
chemical sunscreens could increase risk of cancer.
Avoid nanomaterials and potential hormone
disrupters. “The ideal sunscreen would completely
block the UV rays that cause sunburn, immune
suppression and damaging free radicals. It would
remain effective on the skin for several hours and
not form harmful ingredients when degraded by UV
light. It would smell and feel pleasant so that
people use it in the right amount and frequency.
Unsurprisingly, there is currently no sunscreen
that satisfies all these criteria. The major
choice in the U.S. is between “chemical”
sunscreens, which have inferior stability,
penetrate the skin and may disrupt the body’s
hormone systems, and “mineral” sunscreens (zinc
and titanium), which often contain micronized- or
nano scale particles of those minerals. After
reviewing the evidence, EWG determined that
mineral sunscreens have the best safety profile of
today’s choices. They are stable in sunlight and
do not appear to penetrate the skin. They offer
UVA protection, which is sorely lacking in most of
today’s sunscreen products. Mexoryl SX (ecamsule)
is another good option, but it’s available in very
few formulations. Tinosorb S and M could be great
solutions but are not yet available in the United
States. For consumers who don’t like mineral
products, we recommend sunscreens with avobenzone
(3 percent for the best) and without the notorious
hormone disrupter oxybenzone. Scientists have
urged parents to avoid using oxybenzone on
children due to penetration and toxicity concerns

2) Carotenoids: Eat green, red and orange
vegetables- they contain beta-caratone and
lycopene that work as an internal sunscreen.
Carotenoids are antioxidants which reduce the
negative effects of UVB radiation. Green leafy
vegetables are rich in xanthophylls (oxygenated
carotenoid compounds) that are amazing for skin
protection. Carotenoid pigments are used by plants
as sunscreen and can activate melanin. Foods
containing high concentrations of carotenes are:
apricots, papaya, mango, carrots, sweet potatoes
and beets.

3) Vitamins E & C: Both have been shown in studies
to work as a preventive measure against sunburn
because the vitamins act as antioxidants to heal
sunburn that is a result of oxidative damage to
skin cells. Goji Berries are an amazing source of
carotenoids and have good amounts of vitamin C.
Nuts and seeds like walnut and hemp seed are a
good source of vitamin E.

4) Tea: If you experience sunburn, soak in a
strong solution of tea. The tannins help the skin
recover and reduce pain. Drinking tea is also
beneficial for skin due to its rich source of
polyphenols that offer unrivalled protection
against free radical exposure which is responsible
for 80% of skin. A study shows drinking two or
more cups of either black or green tea reduces the
risk of developing squamous cell skin cancer by
30%. There is a contra-indication if you suffer
from thyroid issues as the fluoride content of tea
can suppress thyroid function.

5) Honey: Honey is antibacterial and multiple
studies have shown that honey can help to heal
wounds. Because of this, applying honey to a
sunburn could help the skin re-epithelize (grow
new epithelial skin cells). Manuka honey in
particular because of its antibacterial and
anti-inflammatory properties.

6) Cell food: If Skin Cancer is already a concern
for you, you may want to consider a topical
application of a product called Cell foodmixed
with Manuka Honey. The Cellfood formula contains
78 minerals, 34 enzymes, and 17 amino acids. It
utilizes a proprietary water-splitting technology
that provides a powerful stream of bio-available
oxygen plus 129 nutrients directly to the cells.
Mix ¼ tsp of Manuka Honey with one drop of cell
food and apply before bed. It may look worse
before it improves.

7) Aloe Vera: A study of the Aloe Vera plant has
shown to heal a burn 1/3 faster! “There are
factors in aloe that help the cells regenerate,
keep an aloe plant in your home. Or simply
purchase a leaf or two from the market and break
it open when needed. The whole plant is stronger
than a commercial made gel so it is worthwhile
keeping a plant close by.”

8) The final word: NOTHING beats wearing light
cotton clothing and a wide brimmed hat.

I get sun every day but early when I practice my
Qi gong at 6:30 in the morning. By 8:30, I am home
and ready for a healthy breakfast.
