5 Bad Foods for Your Immune System. » Aspartame: This terrible chemical, found in Equal and Nutrasweet, breaks down into formaldehyde which, then accumulates in the body’s organs. This accumulation causes nerve damage and other problems, and it has known links to many other diseases. » Hydrogenated Oils: These oils contain trans-fats, which are known to increase inflammation in the body and lead directly to heart disease, high cholesterol and poor immune function. » White Sugars: These sugars contribute to issues like diabetes and obesity, but they are also destructive to the immune system, slowing immune cell response time and leaving us vulnerable to bacterial and viral invasion. » Soft Drinks: These contain too much sugar and if its sugar free it’s probably even worse, see “aspartame” above. They also contain phosphoric acid, which disrupts the body’s pH balance and leads to poor mineral absorption. » Mono-Sodium Glutamate (MSG): This chemical is found in many foods as a flavor enhancer. You’ll have to check food labels to avoid this additive. Not only does it weaken the immune system but it has also been linked with cancer. The chemical has been linked with cancers. Some people are very sensitive to MSG and suffer from a host of negative side effects, including headaches, dry mouth and dizziness. #DrAl

Stage 3 of retirement: Living in retirement
The challenge in this stage is to successfully navigate varying circumstances to be able to stick to your planned withdrawals of retirement assets and live the desired golden years. According to the Social Security Administration, one out of every four 65-year-olds will live past the age of 90 and one out of ten 65-year-olds will live past the age of 98. Are you financially prepared to live this long?
It's getting chilly and turning on the heat at home is unavoidable. If your loved one with dementia lives in the UK, here are five ways they can get help with heating bills:
1. Winter Fuel Payment
This is not means tested, so if you or the person you care for was born on or before 5 August 1953 you could be entitled to between £100- £300 to help with heating bills. This won’t affect other benefits. Most people who are eligible receive their payment automatically between November and December and everyone should have received it by January 15.
2. Cold Weather Payment
If temperatures in your area fall below freezing, you might be able to get more money. This additional payment is given to people who are receiving Pension Credit, Income Support or Universal Credit.
3. Affordable Warmth Grant
If you struggle to keep their home warm and cosy, it might be that they need better insulation or a new boiler you might be entitled to this Government grant, though you will probably have to make a contribution towards the improvement cost.
4. Warm Home Discount
This entitles you to a one-off discount on your electricity bill from September to March (up to £140). To qualify, you need to be receiving the Guarantee Credit part of Pension Credit.
5. Charitable Grants
If you are still struggling, you might be able to get a charitable grant. The Energy Saving Trust and Charis Grants provide information and advice on grants and home improvements to make your house warmer and to keep the bills down.

🌸Happy Day #fitfam 🎀 Absolutely loving the new “Glow Me” tinted moisturizer from my favorite skincare company @freskincare , especially because I HATE to wear foundation (even though I need it 🤷🏻♀️). I’m also loving this nice bright lighting in my bedroom that hides my wrinkles 😉 lol but swipe for my bare faced #nomakeup#selfies too . 😳. This post was intended to include a discussion about my own personal insecurities about well... my FACE at 49 years old and how hard it is to keep up in a world of plastic surgery ,quick (expensive ) fixes , fake everything , and not to mention the perfection we see here on the gram ... (and please don’t mistake this as bashing or passing judgement ... jealousy plays a factor 😌) ...but I’ve found myself with a little writer’s block and can’t seem to convey my thoughts today so it will have to wait .... BUT I’d be a bad friend if I didn’t get the word out that you can use my code CARRIE for 25% off any order at @freskincare for the next 24 hours !! 🎉The code always works for 15% off and if you’ve been following me for a while you already know that I use all of the Fre’ products every day and love them ! Made for women who sweat and the best moisturizer with spf I’ve found ! 🙌Anyone else despise wearing foundation ? .
And on a quick #fitness note, I ran 4 miles this morning and beat my most recent best time so feeling great about that ! Hope you had a good #workout today!! 😘. And warning that a post about the above mentioned topic will be coming soon because it’s something that’s on my mind on the daily and I think many women might feel the same . Hmmm??? 😘
And I promise you that I didn’t edit any of these photos ... just had a VERY bright light on in front of me in the first two , and the closeups without makeup were in front of my bathroom window . #nofilter#noedit .
I didn’t eat all this in 1 meal, in fact I only had the #melon that had my fork in🍉 But I wanted to use this #picture as an example because here we have 2 great foods, but one that is around 90% water and one thats closer to 70% water💧 Now which do you think is going to pass through your body better and free up more energy🤷🏻♂️ Most people today are dehydrated no matter how much water they #drink because the food they eat has been #cooked (killed) so all the water has been removed☠️ This goes for the dehydrated #raw food and the nuts and seeds as well, now I’m not saying that all raw #food can’t play a part in your #lifestyle but we need to base our #diet around the high water content fruits🤯 Your #health will go to a new level when you fully hydrate, most #aging is actually just dehydration yet because it happens to everyone we see it as normal🤔 Getting old, #sick and slow is not normal, it happens to no other specie on the #planet but humans think dis-ease it natural when it’s just #waste blocking up the body☠️ Increase hydration and watch your #life go to the next level🌴🍇
A facelift is the most comprehensive approach to treating facial wrinkles and sagging caused by aging. The surgery varies in range from minimally invasive ‘lunchtime lifts’ to more extensive, sophisticated surgery.

Hyaluronic acid is a substance naturally occurring in the human body. It’s a magnet for moisture and an excellent source of hydration for skin. When applied regularly, it will help your old, tired, dull skin appear more smooth, flawless, and hydrated. It really is amazing stuff! I apply it to my face, neck, and chest right after I get out of the shower and then continue with my daily moisturizer and makeup routine.
There are many different brands to choose from but @asterwoodnaturals is my personal favorite.
I love the clean design of their packaging and the convenient pump! $35 for an 8oz bottle on Amazon.
