How Do You Push Back the Clock?

In anti-aging, entrepreneur, health, Uncategorized, wellness on August 1, 2012 at 1:52 pm

It doesn’t matter if you’re one of the 79 million baby boomers in this country–of if you’re in your 20s.  We all want to find ways to prevent and reverse the signs of aging.

While scientists may have found a possible link to aging–the telomere (for more on this, go to: http://irenefross.com/blog/2012/07/telomeres-and-the-link-to-aging), there are five very critical points that everyone, without fail, should keep in mind when trying to reverse the aging process.

  • Nutrition: Everyone should consume plenty of fruits and vegetables; they contain not only vitamins and minerals, but antioxidants—the substances that destroy free radicals.

The most important thing is to start your day off right with a healthy breakfast, to maintain your energy, regulate your blood sugars, and continue to make wiser choices throughout the day.

“I begin my day with a healthy, whole grain breakfast of oatmeal and fresh fruit,” says Faith Hope Consolo, renowned real estate broker and “Queen of Retail” who favors high-quality, fresh ingredients. “Thereafter, it’s pretty much vegetables and lean protein, including a lot of fish.” .

“I stay away from complex carbohydrates that are not whole grain, said Linda Alexander, president of Alexander Marketing, a full-service public relations firm. She explained that, although her diet is largely plant-based, she will sometimes eat organic meat and wild-caught fish.

  • Exercise: Exercise releases endorphins, which make you feel better and can reduce stress. Everyone has their own particular favorite, whether Pilates or Zumba or Inten-Sati –and there’s been a lot of media attention lately about the anti-aging effects of yoga. Joschi Schwarz, Creative Director and Co-Owner of the Joschi Yoga Institute in New York City, says “Yoga keeps your muscles and joints flexible, and gives you a fit body and an active mind. A regular yoga practice, including breath work (Pranayama) , increases blood circulation and the amount of oxygen throughout your body and your brain, therefore helping to delay the signs of aging.

Schwartz continues: “Especially the inverted yoga postures have an anti-aging effect and reverse the effect of gravity, firming our facial muscles, giving you a natural face-lift and glowing skin.”

  • Supplements: They should never be used as a substitute for good nutrition but, rather, to fill in the gap, since today’s soils are usually depleted and foods often contain hormones, chemicals and artificial ingredients, it’s vital to fill in the gaps with good supplementation. Make sure you look at delivery systems—some create easier absorption by the body than others—and be sure it’s approved by an independent, third-party auditor.
  • Skin care: “The latest research shows that skin actually ages itself,” said anti-aging specialist Dr. SteveTsoutsouras. “All skin contains an enzyme called Arnox that produces free radicals; everyone has it. The skin aging process actually begins in our 20’s and, as we get older, cells don’t turnover as fast, elasticity and moisture lessens, and the skin takes longer to heal itself. So when we don’t take care of our skin—whether it’s smoking, drinking to excess, or being less-than-thoughtful about skin care products, it accelerates the aging process even more.

New York City Acupuncturist Sandy Root., Sandy Root, L.Ac., MSTOM, says her firm, Root-Acupuncture, specializes in facial rejuvenation—a natural, painless and effective way to eliminate fine lines and diminish larger wrinkles, reduce double chins and drooping eyelids and improve muscle tone.

“It’s not just superficial treatment, because it balances the internal body. In fact, studies have been done showing it increases collagen and skin elasticity,” Root says.

  • Self-care: Research shows the positive effects of massage and meditation. Everything feeds us whether or not it’s on our plate; the connection between mind-body-spirit is undeniable.

Gladys Murphy is a NYC-area Resonance Repatterning™ Certified Practioner who says, “ Resonance Repatterning is a system that allows us to lose weight so to speak. We identify and transform unconscious patterns, limiting beliefs and old negative feelings that show up as the challenges that we experience in our daily lives. The patterns live in our cells, and in every aspect of our physical, mental, and emotional beings.” Murphy explains that the patterns hold energy and, once released, the person experiences a shift, feeling more energetic and calmer.

New York City real estate sales associate Sandra Manley, summed it up perfectly: “If I were talking to a co-worker, friend or whatever, what is the one piece of advice I’d give them to help turn back the clock? I would tell them to have fun, wherever and whenever possible – laugh, play, spend time with people who make you happy, travel, learn new things, and enjoy life at every opportunity.”

The Power of Your Mind: Affecting Everything from Wellness to Prosperity

In career, entrepreneur, health, nutrition, Uncategorized, wellness on May 21, 2012 at 10:36 pm

 

How does your brain/mind affect your health, wellness, longevity, prosperity, success and more?

Early research by Eldon Taylor and others proved that auditory stimulation is one of the most effective ways to change a state of mind. Eldon Taylor theorized that by using verbal stimuli just below the threshold of awareness, he could have a positive effect on the moods and behavior of the listeners. His theories were proven correct and thus were born the InnerTalk® method.

A former practicing criminalist, Taylor says he first became intrigued by this concept over 25 years ago when he heard of a study completed by the LA Police Department in anticipation of the LA-hosted Olympics.  The study, he says, focused on information delivery–what we know as subliminal messages.  This study featured sounds, such as furnaces, with messages embedded that would speak to a person’s physiology.  It was first tested on the police cadets, he says, but had to be terminated within 3 days, since they all experienced powerful physiological reactions, such as dehydration.

What Role Does The Subconscious Mind Play?

“Science has discovered many of the hard wired connections that appear to give the brain/mind so much control over the body (health, wellness, longevity, and youthfulness) and our destinies in terms of success, learning, wealth and prosperity,” says Eldon Taylor. Yet, as his website points out, the only limitation is that which is self-imposed, with us being subjected to repeated messages teaching self doubt, fear, anxiety, etc. This programmed language of limitation has become the life script, expectation, and therefore most of the reality.

He continues: To change current behavior, you first have to change the information stored in the subconscious. It sounds easy, but you can’t just tell your subconscious to think differently and ask for life-changing behavior modification. You must find a way to counteract those subconscious thoughts and introduce different thoughts for your subconscious to use. The InnerTalk method will help you control the introduction of stimuli to the subconscious and therefore control behavior modification.”

Taylor says his technology and products have been rigorously tested by independent researchers at leading universities, such as Stanford.

” In the most rigorous of scientific research designs, the double blind study, our programs have repeatedly demonstrated their effectiveness. From Weight Loss to Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD), from stress to depression, from learning to examination anxiety, and more, we have demonstrated our ability to facilitate your mind power,” he says.

*******

Taylor, a former criminologist, is is considered one of the foremost authorities on subconscious motivation and developed the patented and proven subliminal technology called InnerTalk®.   The New York Times best-selling author has had his work cited in many books and he is the creator of more than 300 award-winning books, audio and video programs.

Taylor is a fellow in the American Psychotherapy Association and an internationally sought-after speaker. His books and audio-video materials have been translated into more than a dozen languages and have sold millions worldwide.

In early June, he’ll be officially rolling out his newest product, “Fit and Healthy,” a package of 9 programs and 8 CDs, utilizing the Inner Talk Technology.

What Is Flow–and How Does It keep You Healthy

In computer, fitness, health, lifestyle, software, Uncategorized, wellness on April 16, 2012 at 10:37 pm

I recently conducted a survey to find out more about your biggest wellness concerns and furstrations.  Many of you told me one of your biggest challenges was finding time to exercise.  We all know it’s pretty unhealthy to sit at a desk or in front a computer all day–but we all also know just how challenging it can be to find the time.  (And I remember many times when I was just too tired or burned out after a tough day.)

So here’s the story of Flow, with a short video clip, that will give you some suggestions on solving this problem. Flow is a software program built with the primary goal of improving the health of people, especially those who sit in front of computers all day.

By the way, I’d love to hear from you–won’t you please complete this brief (5-10 minutes max) survey. To access:http://survey.constantcontact.com/survey/a07e5qxons7h07fvtcv/start

Florida psychologist Dr. Renee Nasajon, Psy.D,  practices holistic psychology;  that is, she explores the interconnectedness of the mind and body.

Many years ago while working in a hospital, she was able to walk–a LOT. That all ended when she went into private practice. She spends much of her day now in a chair, listening to patients–or in front of a computer doing research. As she says, her metabolism fell into disarray and she started to gain weight little by little.

One day she was on the treadmill at the gym and thought, “I  am so violent with my body! I spend hours almost not moving, and then all of a sudden I bring it here and force it to run and lift weights and do all kinds of extreme things. I’m going to end up hurting myself!”

If she wanted to exercise in an effective and safe manner at the gym, she’d have to find a way to condition her body in preparation.

That’s when she created Flow.

Flow is a video that pops up on your computer screen to guide you through about five minutes of physical activity while still sitting at your desk.

“There is an abundance of emerging research that demonstrates the health-risks associated with sedentariness –spending too many hours without engaging in any kind of physical activity.

Dr. Nasajon continued: “The research shows that if we interrupt that sedentary behavior with just five minutes or so of some kind of physical activity, we can dramatically improve our ability to burn calories, improve our mood, decrease our cravings for sugar, caffeine and nicotine. We become more focused, more energetic, and we can reduce our blood pressure and our risk to develop osteoporosis, diabetes, cholesterol, and even some forms of cancer. ”

Sugar and Energy: The “Crash”

In health, lifestyle, wellness on March 21, 2012 at 3:04 pm

FIRST IN A BLOG SERIES ON THE EFFECT OF SUGAR ON YOUR ENERGY:

Sugar creates fluctuations in blood sugar levels, resulting in that well-known “sugar crash,” resulting in that listless, sleepy, depressed and, even sometimes irritable and anxious, feeling.

Here’s why:  First, you need to know that your body only needs ONE TEASPOON of sugar in the blood.  When you eat sugar, you’re creating a “high sugar emergency.”  Your body will immediately send for insulin to transport the sugar into your cells where it’s converted to fuel.  It does such a good job it removes ALL the sugar; you’ll not only crash—but your body will interpret the “low blood sugar” emergency and send the signal for you to eat even more sugar.

Healthy Is Crucial To Your Career

In business, career, corporate, health, wellness on February 1, 2012 at 1:22 am

“All companies look for both professionalism and enthusiasm. If you’re not feeling your best, you won’t be as energetic. Being healthy is a critical component of the interviewing process,” says Emily Koltnow, president of the executive recruiting firm, Koltnow & Company (www.koltnow.com). 

So ask yourself these questions:

  • How  productive are you?  Do you, or will you, walk into the office every morning–energetically, enthusiastically, ready to take on new challenges?
  • Are  you constantly fatigued or energetic?
  • Do you get headaches?
  • How does food affect you, both physically and emotionally? Do you come back from lunch sleepy and irritable or refreshed and energetic?
  • Do you have a major energy crash in the late afternoon?
  • Are you able to handle challenges calmly and effectively?
  • Do you rely on coffee or diet soda throughout the day?

Your wellness is a critical factor in your daily professional life. You need to be at the top of your game and stand out from the competition like never before.

Skills are crucial, but so is mindset (actually, some even say that mindset is more important), so let the prospective employer see someone who is highly-functional, energetic, enthusiastic and vibrant.

Also keep in mind that the employee benefit package is often one of the largest employer expenses, so make sure they see someone looking fit and healthy.

Five Ways to Nourish Your Career, Your Life

In career, food, health, job, lifestyle, nutrition, wellness on January 23, 2012 at 12:41 am

I once knew a woman who would come back from her lunch break sleepy and cranky. She’d put her head down on her desk and then arise to shout and snap at co-workers, clients-and, eventually, her boss. She was fired shortly after that incident.

She’d always explain her behavior by saying “It’s the food!” She was actually on to something; food is powerful and can seriously affect your moods and energy levels. Food has the power to heal-or harm.

Whether you’re unemployed and job-hunting, or employed but want to move up the company ladder, you need to stand out from the competition like never before.

Emily Koltnow, president of the executive recruiting firm, Koltnow & Company, says: “All companies look for both professionalism and enthusiasm. If you’re not feeling your best, you won’t be as energetic. Being healthy is a critical component of the interviewing process.”

Another recruiter mentioned to me that, yes, skills on paper are important–but, also, at the end of the day, the prospective employer will look at the entire picture of you.  In other words, “At the end of the day, will that person make my job easier or more difficult?”

Here are five (5) easy, but highly effective, nutritional and lifestyle strategies for maintaining that competitive edge-and your moods.

1. Keep a Food Journal: Everything is food -and it can affect all areas of your day, energy levels, and even your mood. Knowledge is power. So write it down: How do you feel when you eat a certain food or consume a particular meal? Happy? Energetic? Sleepy? Irritable? Examine your results, detect patterns, and avoid problem or trigger foods.

2. Get enough sleep: Everyone should get at least 7.5 hours a night. There are several reasons why adequate sleep is important.

First, when we don’t get enough sleep, we often, naturally turn to comfort foods with high fat, high sugar, and high sodium contents. Those, in themselves, are energy zappers-not to mention the havoc they wreak on your diet.

Second, sleep has a direct effect on three hormones that regulate stress, energy balance and appetite. When you don’t get enough sleep, cortisol, the stress hormone, elevates glucose and appetite; it’s often blamed for thickening mid-sections. Lack of sleep also causes ghrelin, which increases appetite, to increase, and leptin, which suppresses appetite and moderates energy balance, to decrease.

Third, inadequate sleep affects immunity and moods. A few years ago the Archives of Internal Medicine explored the common cold.  Therefore, 153 people received, via nose drop, the rhino virus.  The rhino virus is the virus that gives us the common cold, said New York City Naturopathic Doctor, Peter Bongiorno, ND, LAc.  It was found that those studied, who got at least seven hours of sleep per night, were 300% less likely to catch a cold.  For more information on the study, click here.

Too stressed to sleep? Learn some relaxation techniques, such as deep breathing, meditation or yoga.

3. Eat Breakfast: Eating breakfast will keep your energy levels consistent throughout the morning, most likely leading to you making better choices at lunch. When you skip breakfast: you’ll be ravenous and fuzzy by mid-morning, which will probably lead to you reaching for a caffeinated drink or sugary snack to offset the slump. At lunch, you’ll probably be very hungry, and tired, and will binge on sugary foods, causing a mid-afternoon slump. I once worked with a woman who rummaged through the company kitchen by 4:00 PM to look for leftover birthday cake, pizza or other treats. Yet another made a regular run to Baskin-Robbins every afternoon around 3:00.

A good breakfast should include a little protein, whole grains, vegetables and/or fruit.

4. Stay Hydrated: Water transports nutrients and oxygen throughout the body, so drink up-or you’ll feel fatigued if you don’t drink enough. If you wait until you’re thirsty, you’re already dehydrated. If you don’t drink enough, you can experience everything from muscle cramps to headaches, inability to pay attention, and dizziness.

Divide your weight in half-that’s the number of ounces you should drink per day-and substitute a glass of water every time you want to reach for caffeine or sugary drinks.

5. Fit Fare: Eat plenty of whole foods: grains, vegetables, fish and lean proteins. These foods are packed with vitamins, minerals, enzymes and fiber. Grains are a complex carbohydrate, absorbing into the bloodstream at a steady rate, providing long-lasting energy. They also increase serotonin, the substance that makes you feel less stressed. As for veggies, the more colorful the assortment, the better, because each color contains a different set of phytonutrients, thought to promote health. Don’t forget sea vegetables-kelp, dulce, seaweeds, hajiki and nori; they’re loaded with minerals (such as calcium) are an excellent source of Iodine, Vitamin K and B-vitamins. Nori makes a great substitute for bread when creating wraps.

Protein provides amino acids which are building blocks for many things in the body, including playing a role in alertness. It also helps build and maintain body cells and regulate body processes. Fish provides important omega 3’s which appear to have many health benefits for body and brain, including reducing risk for heart disease and improving mood.

Superfoods, called that because of their high nutrient content, include berries, citrus fruits, oats, pumpkin (100% pure-not the pie filling), walnuts, and yogurt. Greens–broccoli, spinach, kale, collards, bok choy–have been linked to everything from improved circulation to promoting healthy immune systems and lessening depression.

Five Wellness Resolutions For The New Year

In cooking, fitness, health, sleep, Uncategorized, weight, wellness on January 10, 2012 at 8:43 pm

According to Medical Daily, 60 percent think they’ll break their New Year’s resolutions!  Here are five you should keep, though.

1.  Cook More Often At Home.  Cooking feeds the mind, body and soul.  And think about it:  When you do your own cooking, you control what you put in your body.  You’ll probably save money, too, since you won’t be spending as much on eating out–or on those highly processed, chemicalized convenience foods.

2.  Always Eat Breakfast.  Breakfast breaks the overnight fast and will start your metabolism. If you skip breakfast, or any other meal, your body will think it’s starving and will go into protection mode by lowering your metabolism.  That means–you guessed it!–you could actually gain weight by not eating a meal.  You’ll probably overeat at the next meal, too, since you’ll probably be very hungry from skipping before.

3.  Exercise! It can enhance your mood,  control weight and even help to fight fatigue (exercise carries nutrients and oxygen to the cells.)  It can even help promote sleep.  “Some of my patients tell me they can’t sleep without exercising,” said Dr. Kathia Roberts, Ph.D., ND, D.PHYT to me last spring.

4.  Get More Sleep.  I was recently told by Dr. Peter Bongiorno, ND, LAc about a study by the Archives of Internal Medicine where 153 people were given the rhino virus (common cold) by nose drop.  It was found that those studied who got at least seven hours of sleep per night were 300% less likely to catch a cold. So here’s the bottom-line:  Sleep deprivation leads to exhaustion which can lead to chronic illnesses and injury.

5.  Always be prepared for the Snack Attack!  Rather than running out daily for coffee, donuts, cookies or other calorie-laden, energy-draining snacks, keep them fit and healthy. Be prepared for the Snack Attack! Carry little bags of vegetables, fruit, nuts or seeds. Some people even carry a couple of turkey or chicken slices.

New Year, New You: Next Series of Group Wellness Classes Begin Soon

In classes, education, health, nutrition, wellness on December 27, 2011 at 8:34 pm

It’s almost the New Year! What are your wellness goals? More energy? More focus and clarity? Maybe to finally get back into those favorite skinny jeans?

Recharge and take control of your life by enrolling in the next series of group classes. This 3-month program will begin January 16 and end on March 30.

There’ll be several essential elements to the class:

1. First, we’re going to jumpstart everyone’s goals with everyone–including me–doing a 9-day nutritional cleanse. When you do a safe and effective cleanse, you rid your body of toxins, rejuvenate it, and provide your body with the necessary enzymes to transport minerals. While a cleanse isn’t a weight loss program per se, the happy result is usually the loss of a few pounds–but you’ll definitely look firmer, younger (who doesn’t want that?) and have an abundance of energy. In short, you’ll be thrilled with the results!

2. We’ll meet twice a month (every other week) for one (1) hour each time to discuss nutritional issues, such as cravings; eating healthfully with limited time, budget and other resources; the effects of food on overall well-being and mood and more. We’ll also discuss lifestyle techniques; afterall, everything feeds us, and if one part of our life is out of balance we’ll be left, well, hungry.

3. Food lists, recipes and daily inspirations will be sent to your inbox on a daily basis to make sure you stay focused.

PRICE: $500 for the entire 3-month program, including any materials

WHERE: Midtown West Office DATE: January 16 to March 30, 2012
