Lipoic Acid Skin Creams
In the 1990's Nicholas Perricone, a US dermatologist, published various scientific studies on the use of
lipoic acid for skin improvement. Since then the use of lipoic acid in skin care products has taken off on a
big scale.
The important function of lipoic acid that makes it so useful for skin care is its ability to inhibit and dissolve
cross-linking. This is the formation of chemical connections between proteins. Cross-linking contributes to
aging by causing hardening of arteries, stiffening of joints, and hardening and wrinkling of the skin.
Conversely, lipoic acid also stimulates collagen synthesis. Perricone in his studies could show that lipoic
acid softened the skin and erased wrinkles, lines and even scar tissue.
The anti-inflammatory properties of lipoic acid reduce redness due to rosacea, acne and sensitive skin.
Finally, it is claimed to improve dull skin, puffy eyes and dark circles as well as sun-damaged skin, and it is
regarded as a skin-whitener, meaning that brown age spots or liver spots and pigmentation abnormalities
start to fade. All in all very impressive. Further good news is that it is far less irritating than the commonly
used skin treatment with tretinoin (Retin A, Renova) and hydroxy acids.
In his experiments Perricone used oil-based lipoic acid at a very high concentration of 5%. The
concentration in commercial skin creams is usually much less, ranging from 0.25 to 5% but commonly
between 1 and 3%. Lipoic acid is not easily soluble in oils and may be first dissolved in ethanol and other
organic solvents before being mixed with oils.
The Antioxidant Skin Tonic
However there is another way and that has been used in the Stride into Health Antioxidant Skin Tonic. The
sodium salt of lipoic acid is easily water soluble so that it was possible to make a tonic with a lipoic acid
concentration of 7.5%. Therefore it is a concentrate and best diluted with two parts of water for general use,
although it may be applied full strength to specific damaged areas.
An additional bonus is the higher bioavailability of the sodium salt compared to the acid form. Orally 10–30
times higher peak blood levels could be achieved with the sodium salt. Together with a suitable carrier this
allows also better skin penetration. The Skin Tonic contains a high level of MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane)
which serves not only as a carrier into the skin but helps with repairing damaged skin in its own right. There
is also 7.5% of N-Acetyl Glucosamine in the Tonic, another repair factor for damaged skin and joints.
Finally, glycerine serves to keep the skin moist and gives the active ingredients more time to penetrate.
Mercury Chelation
Due to the presence of two sulphur groups, lipoic acid is a chelating agent. It chelates mercury both
intracellular (inside cells) and extracellular (blood and lymph) in the brain and in other parts of the body.
Lipoic Acid has a half life of 3 hours, which means half of the absorbed lipoic acid is excreted in 3 hours.
Therefore it should be used on a strict schedule every 3–4 hours even at night, or liberated mercury may be
dumped in the brain or other organs. This can be a problem especially within 3 months of having mercury
fillings removed. It has been recommended to adopt a periodic lipoic acid schedule for detoxification, as for
instance for 3 days and 2 nights once a week or fortnight.
With this, the Tonic can also be used for detoxification of mercury and other heavy metals, such as lead.
For details see the Cutler Protocol (and possibly Mercury Detox). Each dose may be from one quarter to 1
mg/kg body weight. The Tonic supplies 75 mg of lipoic acid per ml which can be easily measured with a
supplied pipette.
The Cutler program has been extensively used for autistic children who received most of their mercury from
vaccinations, but it also works for adults with mercury problems due to amalgam fillings. During
detoxification health problems may temporarily increase. To minimise such reactions I recommend starting
mercury detoxification only after bringing Candida under control as this is at the bottom of most modern
diseases, see Overcoming Candida.

R,S-Lipoic Acid or R-Lipoic Acid?
There are several forms of lipoic acid available. The form produced in the body is R-lipoic acid while the
commonly used supplement form is R,L-lipoic acid, simply called lipoic acid. Therefore R-lipoic acid is
generally regarded as being twice as effective as the R,L-form. However, all the original clinical studies,
including those by Perricone for skin improvement and those for mercury detoxification have been done
with R,S-lipoic acid.
Originally the reason for this was that R-lipoic acid just was not available, and when more recently it could
be obtained, it was not only many times more expensive, it was also unstable and formed polymers.
Instead of 30% being absorbed from oral use of R,S-lipoic acid, less that 10% of R-lipoic acid where
absorbed. Buyer beware, as this product is still on the market.
Lately this has led to a further development in producing stabilised R-lipoic acid. This contains in addition
50% of the reduced form of lipoic acid, dihydrolipoic acid, or alternatively the stable sodium R-lipoic acid is
being used. However, the problem remains that it is 5 to 10 times more expensive than R,S-lipoic acid.
While it has been shown that for certain enzyme reaction the R-form can be more than twice as effective
than the R,S-form, it has not been shown that it is also much more effective for skin care or mercury
chelation.

Exercise – It’s at the heart of good health
By Nutritionist, Barbara Bourke
I became really interested in nutrition when I owned my fitness centre in Sydney, Australia. Exercise was
my beginning - my first steps to better health and wellbeing and my route to becoming a nutritionist.
Exercise and nutrition is like the hand and glove. You need good nutrition for energy and muscle growth,
and to get the best results from your exercise program. Even today I will always include exercise in my
daily routine, at least 4 to 5 times a week. There are many reasons why we should exercise, but we will
find even more reason why we shouldn't. Let's face it many of us would rather not do it if we only could get
away with being a couch potato, but still reaping the benefits of an exercise program. Well, let me tell you
there is no way you can do that.

You might have heard the saying "If you rest you rust". This could not be more precise and to the point if
you neglect to move your body. And I don’t mean to walk to the fridge to get a chocolate bar or a beer. It
does not include getting up from the office chair to get another cup of coffee. It means MOVING… walking,
jogging, jumping anything which increases your heart rate and blood and lymph flow.
Imagine your arteries carrying blood around your body passing through the smallest capillaries on its way
to tissue and cells. Here, the blood delivers the nutrients it carried and picks up toxins. The veins continue
the work by delivering those toxins to the organs of elimination. Imagine oxygen rushing into your lungs
reaching the deepest areas of your alveoli's, exchanging carbon dioxide with oxygen.
Imagine speeding up your metabolism as your body's temperature increases, using energy to keep up with
the demands of the extra work. These and other benefits will only take place effectively, when you move
your body to a point, where breathing becomes more laboured and heart rate increases. Click here to
calculate your maximum heart rate http://www.mydr.com.au/tools/heart-rate-calculator
Remember, if you cannot talk or whistle while exercising you are working out too hard. Increase intensity
slowly. The above is achieved through cardiovascular and aerobic training.
Weight training is an anaerobic exercise, meaning without oxygen. It is used in non-endurance sports to
promote strength, speed and power and is muscle building.
Anaerobic exercise relies on energy sources that are stored in the muscles and, unlike aerobic exercise, is
not dependent on oxygen from (breathing) the air. Only short burst exercises like sprinting and weight
training use this energy supply. Lactic acid is the by-produced of this process and this creates "The Burn"
the individual feels after a sprint or weight lifting.
Even performing aerobic exercises (using oxygen) will eventually switch over to this source.
Say, you go for a run and after a few minutes you are out of breath and no way in the world can you carry
on. Meaning, your lungs are no longer capable of supplying enough oxygen to the muscles. For a little
while longer you will be able to go on using anaerobic energy, but this is short lived before even this source
is depleted. Deep breathing will restore oxygen, your lungs recover, and you are able to continue your run.
A combination of both aerobic and anaerobic training is central to overall fitness.
Let's have a look at some benefits exercise can make in your life:
Reduces the risk of dying prematurely.
Reduces the risk of dying prematurely from heart disease.
Reduces the risk of developing diabetes.
Reduces the risk of developing high blood pressure.
Helps reduce blood pressure in people who already have high blood pressure.
Reduces feelings of depression and anxiety.
Helps control weight.
Helps build and maintain healthy bones, muscles, and joints.
Helps older adults become stronger and better able to move about without falling.
Promotes psychological well-being.
Speeds up your metabolism, even hours after exercise and burns calories
Makes your muscles more insulin sensitive
The pancreas needs to produce less insulin and levels drop, less insulin in the blood to convert
sugar to fat
Reduces the amount of fat deposit and reduces food intake
Gets cortisol levels down (stress and inflammation increase cortisol levels) - Excess cortisol more
visceral fat
There might even be less risk of developing some cancers.

Perhaps it is time you included exercise in your daily life. The benefits are wonderful.
Maybe you would like include the whole family. Kids, especially these days, need to learn about the
benefits of exercise. Implementing a fitness program in one’s life can never be too early. Growing up within
a family who keeps fit gives any child the advantage of better health and wellbeing, now and in the future.
More than ever in our modern society, kids are not spending enough time outdoors, breathing fresh air,
eating health promoting food and participating in an exercise program. This is shown in alarming statistics
of how many children slowly slide into the weight range of obesity.
In the United States alone, over thirty per cent of the children studied from ages six to nineteen are
considered overweight. Fifteen per cent of those overweight in the study, were also listed as obese.
High blood pressure and diabetes are just two serious health problems that often show up with
obesity in a child. Conditions like these are now treated with medications which until recently had
only been used in adults.
Studies of child obesity statistics show that individuals who are considered overweight as children
will, most likely, face obesity as adults.
http://www.child-obesity.info/child-health/statistics-of-child-obesity.html
The New England Journal of Medicine states:
Obese children under three years of age without obese parents are at low risk for obesity in
adulthood, but among older children, obesity is an increasingly important predictor of adult obesity,
regardless of whether the parents are obese. Parental obesity more than doubles the risk of adult
obesity among both obese and nonobese children less than 10 years of age.
Isn't it high time we took steps to change this? Exercise and improved nutrition is always the first step to
take. Make it fun and you will find your kids might just think it is cool to eat well and exercise - maybe not as
much a playing video games, being in front of the computer or watching the latest TV programs – but as
with everything in life, balance is the key word. Give your kids time for both.
To find something which is fun as well as get you fit is not always easy, particularly if you want to involve
the whole family.
Here are some ideas you could incorporate in your daily busy lifestyle.
Find time to walk in the park, encourage the kids to have a sprint to see who is the fastest, toss a
ball, play cricket
Keep track of who completed their fitness tasks and reward them
Make every Saturday (or any other day of the week) a health and fitness day.
Let the kids find ways of exercising and alternate their ideas.
Put together a simple, easy aerobic class. Put a few songs together and make it fun by including a
few jumps, leg lifts, and simple arm and leg coordinated moves and stretches. Perhaps go and
watch a video or exercise class to get some ideas.
Find books or videos in the library, which teach kids about health and fitness.
Sports people can be a great inspiration; however, often we might hold these people in too high
regard. If they fall from grace, (as some do), then the positive aspect of their endeavors might be
lost and are not the helpful influence we hoped.

HAVE A LAUGH – LAUGHTER REALLY IS THE BEST MEDICINE:
Dear Tech Support,
Last year I upgraded from Boyfriend 5.0 to Husband 1.0 and I noticed a distinct
slowdown in the overall system performance, particularly in the flower and jewellery
applications, which operated flawlessly under Boyfriend 5.0.
In addition, Husband 1.0 uninstalled many other valuable programs, such as Romance 9.5 and Personal
Attention 6.5, and then installed undesirable programs such as NEWS5.0, MONEY 3.0 and FOOTBALL 4.1.
Conversation 8.0 no longer runs, and Housecleaning 2.6 simply crashes the system.
Please note that I have tried running Nagging 5..3 to fix these problems, but to no avail.
What can I do?
Signed,
Desperate wife
Reply
DEAR Madam,
First, keep in mind, Boyfriend 5.0 is an Entertainment Package, while Husband 1.0 is an operating system.
Please enter command: ithoughtyoulovedme.EXE and try to download Tears 6.2 and do not forget to install
the Guilt 3.0 update.
If that application works as designed, Husband1.0should then automatically run the applications Jewellery
2.0 and Flowers 3.5..
However, remember, overuse of the above application can cause Husband 1.0 to default to Silence 2.5 or
out of the house 6.1. Please note that out of the house 6.1. is a very bad program that will download the
MISSTRESS1.EXE
Whatever you do, DO NOT under any circumstances install Mother-In-Law.EXE (it runs a virus in the
background that will eventually seize control of all your system resources.)
In addition, please do not attempt to reinstall the Boyfriend 5.0 program.. These are unsupported
applications and will crash Husband 1.0. Do not download pregnancy 5.0 as well coz it takes 9 months to
down load.
In summary, Husband 1.0 is a great program, but it does have limited memory and cannot learn new
applications quickly.
You might consider buying additional software to improve memory and performance.
We recommend: Cooking 3.0 and Good Looks 7.7.
Good Luck Madam!

Librans are represented by the sign of balance or the scales. Often Librans
have difficulty making up their minds, but are also loathe to accept the
opinion of others.
The Bach Remedy Scleranthus will help these Librans achieve inner balance, by helping them make
correct decisions.
Scorpio October 23-November 21
Scorpios can be manipulative and interfering, however they cloak themselves in an
air of loving concern for others. They elicit pity from others and always use the
line “Don’t worry about me’. They resort to emotional blackmail for their own
gain and crave attention.
The Bach Remedy Chicory assists in bringing unconditional love for others without requiring anything in
return.
October November 2012 Health Buzz
Sagittarius November 22-December 21
Sagittarius put on a cheerful face while being tortured on the inside. These people
find it hard to reveal their real feelings. They tend towards harmony and will do
anything to ‘keep the peace’. They often resort to alcohol, cigarettes and
continuous activity to keep disturbing thoughts under control.
The Bach Remedy Agrimony assists in communicating one’s fear and worries to others, opening up to
others to enable a more realistic view of the problems.
