Episode 29: What Really Causes Aging

Episode 29: What Really Causes Aging

There is so much misinformation about what actually causes aging. Today, I talk about some specific activities and habits that cause your skin to age and what you can do to stop the aging process. I address how inflammation influences aging, and how your diet and sugar intake impact your skin's aging process. I talk about what causes fat pad (the good fat pads) loss in your face, and the role of bleached flour, hydrogenated fats, and sun burns on your skin's ability to look youthful. I also go in depth about my favorite holistic forms of stopping and reversing the aging process and much more.
