True Love

“True love is an acceptance of all that is, has been, will be, and will not be.”

Below, I posted an inspiring short story about true love that was sent to me from a friend……

It was a busy morning, when an elderly gentleman arrived to the hospital where I worked, to have stitches removed from his thumb. As I treated his wound, I noticed he kept looking at his watch and I asked if he was in a hurry. He told me that he needed to be at the nursing home by 9:00 a.m. to have breakfast with his wife. He also shared that his wife had been there for five years, she had Alzheimer’s disease, and that she no longer recognized him.

I was surprised and ask him, “And you still meet her every morning for breakfast, even though she doesn’t know who you are?” He smiled as he patted my hand and said. “She doesn’t know me, but I still know who she is.”

The woman who sent me this story added a lovely empowering quote, I’d also like to share with you today…..

 “Life isn’t about how to survive the storm, but how to dance in the rain.”

EGF for Skin Rejuvenation, Repair, Acne Scars & UV Protection

Since 2002, it’s been my mission to stay “ahead of the curve”, researching and revealing THE  most potent beauty, health and  skin care ingredients on the market.
EGF helps with skin rejuvenation, repair acne scarring and UV protection.

Over six months ago, I introduced many of you to  the age-reversal ingredient EGF (Epidermal Growth Factor) in two creams:  Ultimate Age-Proofing Complex and De-Aging Solution (for Sensitive skin).

EGF is creating a buzz and I’ve noted the skin rejuvenating benefits below:

- EGF promotes the reduction of wrinkles, stimulates cellular renewal, and thickens thinning or mature skin.

 - The proteins in EGF “attach” themselves to the dermis and epidermis, which thicken and add more volume to the face. Women over 50 begin to experience lost volume in the face, neck and tops of hands, so EGF is “here to the rescue”!
 
 - EGF is also an excellent post-chemical peel treatment. When trauma has taken place, EGF works by attracting cells to a wound site, speeding the repair process. The injured cells process EGF, speeding up wound-healing, allowing the skin to repair itself evenly and quickly.
 
-EGF cream is excellent for those with wound-healing issues and diabetic skin.
 
- Applying topical EGF can help reverse the harmful effects of UV rays.
 
- For those with acne lesions, EGF helps rebuild and heal the skin.
 
Both EGF creams I offer at www.hollywoodbeautysecrets.com  are guaranteed to have THE maximum percentage of EGF and are priced at the LOWEST price on the planet. That’s another part of my mission – offering age-proofing products I uncover at the lowest prices. Ultimate Age-Proofing Cream is only $49.95 HERE and De-Aging Solution is only $46.95 HERE
The prices for my EGF creams are 1/3rd the price that many doctors charge! So please take advantage of these amazing, potent, skin rejuvenating EGF creams.

My Body & Thoughts are Healthy

“Divine life is in motion within me.  I stretch my muscles, and walk daily. As I walk silently, I breathe deep, calm breaths, enjoying all life around me. I notice the trees and flowers I pass. I keep my thoughts positive and  feel energized and renewed. I also make conscious food choices  that nourish and protect my body. When I lie down to sleep, I bless my body from head to toe and thank God for my life and healthy body.”

Slimming Tips that Work!

Still struggling to lose those extra holiday pounds? Below are some helpful slimming tips that have helped me, and I hope will encourage you to help to keep on track.

NOTE: If you have any health concerns, check with your physician before engaging in diet changes, supplements or exercise.

1.        Keep a water bottle with you at all times and drink from it often. Cold water burn more calories and also help you drop more fat. Don’t enjoy plain water? Add a squeeze of fresh lemon juice to your water bottle. Be sure to read bottled water labels as some brands contain sodium.

2.        Exercising with a friend or asking a neighbor to walk with you a few mornings each week or evenings, after dinner, will ensure that you get regular exercise.

3.        Eat well-balanced meals and remember that excessive calories, even if they are low fat or high protein  will turn to excess weight. Keep a daily log of what you’re actually eating. Jotting down evey bite you consume – from eating the rest of your child’s meal and all snacks. As you read your daily intake, you’ll soon spot why you’re not dropping weight.

4.        Drink decaf, organic and pesticide-free coffee or herbal green tea, mint or chamomile, etc. Try  Fat Burner Blast Off Coffee – a combination of kosher organic, pesticide-freepremium beans and organic green tea. Available in regular or decaf. Only $14 a bag HERE. Or click HERE for Thermo Green Tea Capsules with no added caffeine, for 43% more thermogenesis (fat burning). Take them before breakfast and lunch. Great for health too! 

5.        Avoid monotony when you do your workout.  Walk to different areas in your neighborhood or when doing arrands. Run the stairs, try biking, hiking, or rollerblading to keep you motivated and inspired. Try some new exercise videos. My challenging personal Under 30 Minute Model Sculpting DVD is the workout I’ve done for years as a model. And it’s on Sale for UNDER $11 at my website HERE:  Scroll down to the bottom of the page to order. Mention my newsletter with your DVD  order, and I’ll email you my new 30 page eBook for FREE..

6.       Did you know that exercising 45 minutes three times a week maintains weight? To lose weight be sure to increase your 45 minute workout to, five or six days a week.   

7.      Look at exercise as a pleasure and privilege and DON’T compare your body to other people’s. Marilyn Monroe is still consdered one of the most beautiful women in the world  and she was a size 14. So love every inch of who your are now and work to be your personal best. Exercise helps give you an uplifted feeling. But feeling positive also begins with your thoughts, which manifest on the outside. If you FEEL attractive and sexy, you’ll look it on the outside, no matter what your challenge. Subscribe to my free  enspiring “Daily Empowering Quotes” at my blog www.LouisaGraves.com

8.        If your diet is unbalanced, work to balance it, and incorporate daily vitamins, minerals and omega 3′s (with your meals) for total health.  I like Vita-One packets as they contain all I need for the day. One box has a one month supply of packets. The manufacturers of Vita-One package their vitamins forother nutritional companies that charge $79 to $117 (per box under different brand names elsewhere)  but you can get them for ONLY $39.95 (per box) at my website. I believe in these packets! After just three weeks I saw even more improvement in my skin and felt even more energized. Even my husband said my skin looked even ore beautiful! Read all the benefits and nutrient equivalents  of Vita-One Brand HERE:

9.        Stick with eating plans you can maintain indefinitely. Remember that no matter how hard you’re working out, if you’re consuming too many calories, you’ll never see the muscles that lie beneath the layers of fatty tissue.

10.     Be sure to geteight hours of sleep nightly helps increase the natural production of human growth hormone, to help keep your body looking and feeling younger. More HGH production keeps your muscles and skin looking more firm and tight. If you’re having trouble sleeping, before bed try drinking a cup of valerian tea for calming or a supplement that I have recommended to thousands is 5 HTP – to help support normal sleep cylces. 5-HTP is  NOT a drug and non-habit forming, BONUS: 100 mg. of 5-HTP can be taken during the day to keep your mood uplifted and helps reduce food cravings. Excellent for women going through hormonal changes and PMS.

11.     Enjoy an occasional (once a week) “unhealthy” treat, but never an “unhealthy” week of eating.

12.    Drinking alcohol should be minimal. Consider having a glass of wine on weekends only. Red wine offers catechins and some other health beneftis, but only in moderation.
