Inside Outside will soon

have been used in Europe for about 8 years for a variety of
age and sun related skin conditions and also acne scarring.
The treatment may be just as effective as more expensive and
painful fractional laser resurfacing treatments such as the
Pixel and the Fraxel with virtually no downtime. There is a
home version of the Dermaroller which markedly improves
absorption of products and a medical treatment version which
is more aggressive, done by me and is aimed at Collagen
Induction for skin rejuvenation. We
will be using the NeoCutis Processed Cell Proteins discussed
in this newsletter as part of our protocol.

Time Magazine, "The Myth of Exercise", we've
preached this from the beginning! |
It would be worthwhile
to take the time to read the lead article in the 17 Aug 09 edition of
Time Magazine. The author makes a lot of good points about the
fact that the "Aerobics" fad promoted by many as a weight loss strategy
is pretty much useless. But what he really should be talking about
is that "Strength Training", by maintaining and sometimes increasing
muscle mass is the best strategy to utilize when you want to lose weight
(read lose fat, maintain or increase muscle). Small decreases in
muscle mass which occur on a yearly basis, unless we do something to
prevent it (read Strength Training) will set us up to get fat. Sarcopenic Obesity, obesity related to the gradual loss of muscle mass
and its metabolically functioning components is what it is called and it
is what we are trying to prevent. See the link to NEAT, Non
Exercise Activity Thermogenesis which may be more important than
exercise over the long term to prevent fat gain in the first place!!

Zeo, Great New Tool for Improving your Sleep! |
Every day you hear more and more about the importance of adequate sleep
for your health and well being. Inadequate or disrupted sleep is
related to many health problems including obesity, glucose intolerance,
hypertension and poor mental function/productivity in our waking hours.
I have been using the Zeo device for several months now and have a
greater appreciation of my sleep profile, deep sleep, REM Sleep,
awakenings etc and things I can do to improve my sleep.

Challenges facing Baby Boomers, Guess what is first?
"According to researchers and clinicians in the Division of Geriatric and
Palliative Medicine at The University of Texas Medical School at Houston,
here is a snapshot of 10 of the challenges that may be staring back at baby
boomers! Guess what the first is?
decline: According to the U.S. Department of
Agriculture, the body loses 1 percent of muscle
mass a year beginning at age 45, which can
result in sarcopenia as skeletal muscle is
eventually replaced with fat and the body
becomes weaker. Some research has linked protein
deficiency with sarcopenia." Sarcopenia is
followed by Depression, Diseases, Polypharmacy,
Falls, Abuse and Neglect, Financial
Exploitation, Dementia, Caregiver Burnout and
finally Death and Dying.

Laurie Keith "The
Vegetarian Myth" Highly Recommended Book!
In her book,
"The Vegetarian Myth" Lierre Keith, a Vegan for 20 years, discusses the
difference between the "nature of nature and the nature of agriculture".
The "nature of agriculture" has been the driving force behind the
development of a population of humans on earth which far exceeds its
carrying capacity (Ecological Footprint). We are in a period of downdraw of
non-renewable resources which is by definition not sustainable. At the same
she explains how the delicate balance between animal predators/prey and
plants/microbials which defines the "nature of nature" has been destroyed.
In this sense agriculture and the factory farming (confined animals fed
grain made available by agriculture) could be a greater threat to our planet
than pollution by enabling overpopulation. Fascinating book to dispel
the "misinformation" about the virtues of agriculture as it is now
practiced. See the YouTube Video of the Month for an introduction to
Vegetarian Myth" at Amazon.com.
Check out the Original Dr. Christian, Jean Hersholt,
Someone reminded me recently of the Original
Dr. Christian, Jean Hersholt, who had a
radio show from 1937-1953, one of the first of the family doctor series.
There were also 6 B/W movies made in the 40's by Jean Hersholt and then
there was a syndicated Dr. Christian TV Show staring MacDonald Carey
Radio and TV shows were popular back then as now.
I remember watching the Dr. Christian TV show on our first B/W
television growing up in Alabama. I'm sure the idea of being
a Doctor was planted in me at that time and I always enjoyed the other
Dr. Series' such as Marcus Welby M.D, Dr. Kildare, MASH and Ben Casey. It all continues today with shows such as ER, Bones and House.

Products now available, Fetal Growth Factors, talk about young!!
"NeoCutis gives a new meaning to "New Skin". This Swiss based research
company working with the University Hospital of Lausanne has developed a
line of products which contain what they refer to as PSP or Processed Cell
Proteins. They took a sample of fetal skin and cultured it. The
result was a complex of 18 different fetal growth factors, antioxidants and
cytokines which are abundant in fetal tissues and are associated with skin
development, repair and renewal. These proteins were used to help heal
deep burns and other poorly healing wounds without skin grafts!! Now
these same proteins are available in a fine line of products which will
complement any skin care program of rejuvenation. We plan to use these
products with the Dermaroller discussed in the first article of this
