Beautiful skin starts below the skin; Collagen has great tensile strength, and is the main component of cartilage, ligaments, tendons, bone and teeth. Along with soft keratin, it is responsible for skin strength and elasticity. Its degradation leads to wrinkles that accompany aging. For example, excess blood sugar is more likely to react with proteins such as collagen in the skin, which can lead to brown splotches or “age spots” as well as loss of elasticity and “premature wrinkling”. Our skincare products in conjunction with our Non-surgical face-lift treatments, help to reduce these effects.

Lets start by examining Diets high in vitamin “C” and also relate to some of our products --as to how they can help the skin structure and decrease Brown splotches and skin discoloration; for example: a diet that would include limes, oranges, and lemons, or even the juices of these fruits in your daily routine would be helpful. Other good sources of Vitamin “C” are fruits such as guava, papaya, tomatoes or strawberries.

Vitamin “C” can also be found in some vegetables, such as bell peppers, broccoli, potatoes, cabbage, spinach, and even pickles and certainly from our nutritional supplements.

Scurvy was at one time common among sailors and others who were on ships that were out to sea longer than perishable fruits and vegetables could be stored and kept fresh; and --by soldiers who were similarly separated from these foods, for extended periods. This condition was described by Hippocrates in about 460 BC and also its cause and cure has been known in many native cultures since pre-history. Untreated scurvy is always fatal; However, since all that is required, for a full recovery, is the resumption of normal vitamin C intake, death from scurvy is rare in modern times. British sailors were given limes to combat scurvy on long ocean voyages; hence, they were called "lymies". Scurvy is a deficiency disease that results from the lack of vitamin C, which is required for good health and even life itself; but as for the skin, it is required to correct collagen synthesis in humans.

Collagen is the main protein of connective tissue in animals and the most abundant protein in mammals; making up about 25% of the total protein content. It is one of the long, fibrous structural proteins, whose functions are quite different from those of globular proteins such as enzymes. Tough bundles of collagen, called “collagen fibers” are a major component of the extra-cellular matrix that supports most tissues and gives cells structure from the outside, but collagen, is also found inside certain cells.

Globular proteins, or spheroproteins (meaning they are tightly wound together) are one of the two main protein classes, comprising globe-like proteins that are more or less soluble in aqueous solutions (where they form colloidal solutions). This main characteristic helps in distinguishing them from fibrous proteins. 

Collagen has great tensile strength, and is the main component of cartilage, ligaments, tendons, bone and teeth. Along with soft keratin, it is responsible for skin strength and elasticity. Its degradation leads to wrinkles that accompany aging. It strengthens blood vessels and plays a role in tissue development. It is present in the cornea and lens of the eye, in crystalline form. It is also used in cosmetic surgery and burn surgery.

We treat this degeneration our professional grade skincare products and with a vacuum technique that is part of our series of non-surgical face-lift treatments. By using gentle vacuum from a high tech piece of equipment we induce stretching of the tissue and this will help restart the production of new elastin and collagen. Over time our treatments can restore the firm, smooth, elastic qualities that skin had in our youth.

Keratins are a family of fibrous structural proteins; tough and insoluble, they form peptide bonds to adjacent protein chains, facilitating their close alignment of the sulfur-containing amino acid cysteine, required for the

di-sulfide bridges that confer additional strength and rigidity by permanent, thermally-stable cross-linking — This role is smimilar to the role “sulfur bridges” play in commercial industry, for “vulcanized rubber”.

Cysteine is a naturally occurring sulpfur-containing amino acid, that is found in most proteins, although only in small quantities. Cysteine is unique amongst the twenty natural amino acids as it contains a thiol group. Thiol groups can undergo redox, which means it has oxidation/reduction reactions; when cysteine is oxidised, it forms cystine, which contains a “di-sulfide bond” (di-sulfide is a chemical compound containing two sulfur atoms combined with other elements or as they are popularly know as free radicals”). We think of free radicals that damage our entire body.

This reaction is reversible because reduction of this di-sulphide bond regenerates two cysteine molecules with the use of our “high antioxidants”.

The di-sulphide bonds of cystine are crucial to defining the structures of many proteins.

Cysteine is often involved in electron-transfer reactions, and this helps the enzyme catalyse –or--- activate its reaction. Cysteine is also part of the antioxidant “glutathione”.

L-glutathione is part of the ingredients in our high antioxidant formulas.

Cysteine is named after cystine, which comes from the Greek word kustis meaning bladder.

A member of the sulph-y-dryl group, cysteine can undergo redox reactions. Redox reactions include all chemical processes in which atoms have their oxidation number (oxidation state) changed. In the presents of our high antioxidants, the numbers are reduced; very necessary for healthy skin.

This can be a simple redox process, such as the oxidation of carbon to yield carbon dioxide, it could be the reduction of carbon by hydrogen to yield methane (CH4), or a complex process such as the oxidation of sugar in the human body, through a series of very complex electron transfer processes, that create something you may be familiar with, “triglycerides”. Since we know that triglycerides can equal plaque and plaque equal heart attack, It is extremely advisable that each person control the blood sugar in their body to help prevent disease and control the aging spots that can occur.

Sustained high levels of sugars in the blood ultimately cause proteins to stick together thereby damaging the function of the proteins. For example, excess blood sugar is more likely to react with proteins such as collagen in the skin, which can lead to brown splotches or “age spots” as well as loss of elasticity and “premature wrinkling”. Our skincare products in conjunction with our Non-surgical face-lift treatments, help to reduce these effects.

Controlling the blood sugar is made easier with the Anti-Aging Clinic Blood sugar testing or food trigger analysis program, utilizing biofeedback.

Food trigger analysis is a health assessment program. This scientific technology that we offer is a biofeedback assessment that will tell each person, what foods or food groups-- will cause a blood sugar rise in their body.  Dr. Friedman, the discoverer of the food trigger assessment program, calls these foods “food triggers” and no matter if you are --young -or -old, skinny—or--obese, healthy –or—unhealthy, you need to know them. 

You know it’s a common “frame of mind” for people to think, “Oh, I feel healthy now, so I don’t need to worry about that stuff yet.  In many cases, individuals are walking around with undiagnosed diabetes or metabolic syndrome X.  In fact, according to the American Diabetes Association, There are 20.8 million children and adults in the United States, or 7-% of the population, who have diabetes. While an estimated 14.6 million-- have been diagnosed and unfortunately- not doing anything about it, and 6.2 million people are unaware, that they have the disease.

The term redox comes from the two concepts of reduction and oxidation. It can be explained in simple terms:

Oxidation describes the loss of an electron by a molecule, atom or ion

Reduction describes the gain of an electron by a molecule, atom or ion

However, these descriptions (though sufficient for many purposes) are not completely correct. Oxidation and reduction properly refer to a change in oxidation number — the actual transfer of electrons may never occur. Thus, oxidation is better defined as an increase in oxidation number, and reduction as a decrease in oxidation number; for example “antioxidants” decrease the oxidation number.  In practice, the transfer of electrons will always cause a change in oxidation number, but there are many reactions, which are classed as "redox" even though no electron transfer occurs -- such as those involving co-valent bonds, this is A chemical bond formed by the sharing of one or more electrons, especially pairs of electrons, between atoms.

Taking verifiable “high” “antioxidants” is extremely important in fighting the damage created by the oxidative stress on our body, as well as liver damage and age splotchs on the surface of the skin.

The Anti-Aging Clinic has a “cold light laser” to measure and determine how high your antioxidant levels are in the body and can recommend antioxidants that will increase your antioxidant level;  Monthly testing will track that increase, in the tissue of the body.

Oxidation of cysteine can produce a di-sulfide bond with another thiol group, and that oxidation can produce sulfonic acids. That cysteine thiol group is also a nucleo-phile and can undergo addition and substitution reactions.

This thiol group is a equally as dangerous to our health, because it has a high affinity for heavy metals; and proteins containing cysteine, will bind metals such as mercury, lead and cadmium tightly; creating even more age spots. Creating “new urgency” to remove those heavy metals with our EDTA suppository chelation program. Heavy metal removal by this process, not only helps the external skin environment but, heavy metal’s are a root cause, of a host of neurological diseases such as ADD, ADHD, Autism and Parkinson's.

 Along with our heavy metal removal program, Identifying your food triggers and measuring your antioxidant levels, then increasing your antioxidant intake, we must remember that body balance, starts with balancing your hormones.  Our products, treatment programs and testing procedures, offer great assistance in re-balancing the body. 

One of our products is a natural skin whitening agent that will help whiten skin discolorations: Alpha-Arbutin, is a Tyrosinase inhibitor, it inactivates Tyrosinase (the enzyme responsible for skin darkening) by chelating with its vital copper ion; it acts as a reducing agent on the melanin intermediates, thus blocking the oxidation chain reaction.

Arbutin is a skin de-pigmentation and whitening agent, an extract of the Bearberry plant which is produced by a solid /liquid extraction that is an environmentally friendly process.

Arbutin protects the skin against damage caused by free radicals; Arbutin is a skin-whitening agent, which is very popular in Japan and Asian countries for skin de-pigmentation. Arbutin inhibits the formation of melanin pigment by inhibiting Tyrosinase activity. It serves as a big help in all races that have color pigmentation problems, to deal with.

The dermis - or - the lower layer of the skin, is produced largely by the fibroblasts that produce the collagen and elastin, which make skin very durable, from within as we have been speaking about.

The basal or cell division layer, which is the layer just above the dermis, is a single layer of cells that undergo cell division to renew the upper layers of the epidermis; the visible layers

The most abundant cell type of the epidermis (upper layer) is the keratin-o-cyte, which provides some of the rigidity of the outer layers of the skin.

The T-lymphocytes are immune-system cells, which ultimately identify a substance as foreign or dangerous to the body; our copper peptide contained in our skincare products, is identical to the copper produced by the body and is accepted as being natural to the body. Copper is the signal for the body to repair itself. When combined with our Non-Surgical face-lift, phenomenal results can be achieved.

As we age, our bodies become slower to produce collagen, elastin, and glycosaminoglycans (GAG's - the cement like substance that bonds tissue components together).

The human skin remodeling copper-peptide simulates the GHK in the blood. GHK is one of the body's natural carriers of copper; these specific amino acid chains bind the copper and protect it, so that it can get to where it needs to go and then be recognized by the body, as a natural transporter and release the skin repairing copper. Copper salts are generally irritating and not easily utilized by the body without our proprietary formulation. Copper in this formulation begins to rebuild the damage, age and the environment have caused.

There is no other known molecule that possesses the multiple skin repair, scar reduction, and anti-inflammatory actions as the copper peptides. The Anti-Aging Clinic’s skincare is based on this technology.

Repairing the structure of the skin is vital, but so is repairing the surface of the skin.

As we have reviewed in most every radio program, good health inside plays an important roll to the beauty that is attainable on the outside and this is the reason David addressed the health internal connections in more detail at the beginning of this program.

Now we are ready to rejuvenate the outside of the skin.

Properly cleansing the skin to remove oil and debris from the pores is certainly number one on the list.

Taking care of the skin is a seven-day a week process and consistency is important and begins with deep cleansing. We introduce our clients to products like Alpha Hydroxy acid, that is a gentle fruit acid, that helps to continue the sleuthing of the skin and cleans the pores so they might close and make your skin smoother and more supple looking.

Chemically speaking, an alpha-Hydroxy acid is a low molecular weight organic acid. Most people associate the word "acid" with potent and dangerous acids like hydrochloric and sulfuric. These acids are called mineral acids and are indeed potent and dangerous. Most are strong enough to dissolve metals. An organic acid however, differs greatly from a mineral acid. Organic acids are much, much milder than mineral acids and occur quite commonly in everyday life. Acetic acid, for example, is the organic acid that gives vinegar its characteristic sour taste.

Alpha-hydroxy acids are commonly found and isolated from fruits of all sorts. That is why they are referred to as fruit acids.

 Long before the existence, of alpha-hydroxy acids (AHA's) were known, they were unknowingly being used as an ingredient for improving the condition of skin. Egyptian women took baths in sour milk in order to improve their skin. French women in the court of Louis XIV washed their faces with old wine for the same reasons. Old fashioned facial masks made from fruit, honey or yogurt were also unknowingly taking advantage of AHAs as their active ingredients.

When applied to the skin, these hydrated AHAs act to increase the water content of the skin and thus moisturize the outer layer of the epidermis (the stratum corneum) and consequently make the skin softer and more flexible.

 Additionally, AHAs act by reducing corneocyte adhesion and accelerating cell proliferation within the deeper basal layer of the skin (4,5,6). This exfoliating action of AHAs occurs as a result of their ability to break the bonds between dead skin cells that form at the surface of the skin. Skin normally has a dead layer of cells at its surface (the corneocyte layer), and AHAs can speed up the normal process of skin cell regeneration and sloughing.

Next we have to restore the acid mantel, which means we need to apply a product called Herbal Toner. This product restores the pH balance to your skin, which is destroyed by soap, the environment, etc.

To protect the skin against infection, irritation, allergic reactions and dehydration, the skin maintains an average pH value of 5.5. This pH is achieved by the body's own acidic secretions, such as perspiration, sebum (fatty secretions) and various hormones. This acidic quality of the skin creates what is known as the acid mantle. In addition to protecting the skin against damaging micro-organisms and the negative impact of the environment, the acid mantle on the surface of the skin acts as a natural deodorant.

The body’s immune system will always attempt to fight and eliminate infections on the surface of the skin no matter what we do to it, we can call the acid mantle the skin’s preemptive immune system, because it attempts to prevent infection in the first place. However, millions of people everyday use common household soap to wash their bodies. Common bar soap has a pH value between 9 and 11. When soap comes into contact with our skin, its alkaline pH reverses the acidic qualities of the acid mantle, rendering the skin defenseless against the onset of infection.

Once the skin’s naturally occurring hydrolipidic layer has been neutralized by the use of common household soaps or detergents, the skin has lost its first line of defense against infection. It will take the most resilient skin two hours to recuperate from the negative chemical effects of a typical daily shower. On the other hand, sensitive skin can take as long as 36 hours to re-establish its normal pH of 5.5. To make matters worse, the use of off-the-shelf clothing detergents will extend the time it takes for skin to re-establish normal pH levels. Popular clothing detergents have pH values between 10 and 12, and a single rinse cycle following the wash does little to remove alkaline residue. For those with sensitive skin, a daily shower and clean clothing mean a never-ending battle with histamine response, from bacterial infection (acne), fungi, or a host of skin diseases like eczema and psoriasis.

By washing the skin with pH-balanced solutions in lieu of soaps, it is possible to remove dirt and oil without stripping the skin’s acid mantle layer. The Anti-Aging Clinic cleaning solutions are designed to augment the skin’s acidic pH, eliminate bacterial and fungal growths, and clean the skin without causing the dryness or irritation common to traditional soaps and by using our “Herbal Toner” it restores the pH.

What is pH?

Needless to say our Herbal Toner is an important step.

Next we need to properly treat the delicate skin under the eye. Ladies to get rid of the dark circles under the eyes, along with receiving our non-surgical face-lift treatments that stimulate the lymphatic system and bring new blood flow to this area; we need to provide a structure repair. Copper eye repair is the product that provides this structure repair and helps to diminish the dark circles. 

The skin around the eyes is especially difficult to keep young looking.  It is the thinnest skin in the body and years of application of cosmetics containing dye and metal salts as well as the sun, can produce extensive skin damage and sagging.  Copper Eye Repair is a gentle around the eye, anti-wrinkle cream designed to help your skin's regenerative processes.

The next application is the greatest product you will ever know and this is Copper Serum Max. The proprietary formula of our copper is identical to that produced by the body and therefore, the body will not attack it as foreign and allow it to repair the skin. Copper is the signal for the skin to repair itself, to make new collagen and elastin that tone and give structure and that youthful look, to the skin.

You are going to love us for introducing you to this product, as well as to all of our professional skincare products professional strength--- and NOT available over the counter.

Next we must relax the muscles that cause our facial expression lines and not with an injection of toxins like those contained in BOTOX®. But with a topically applied product that interferes with the signal from the brain that causes the facial expression lines. This product is our Young Skin. Exclusively from us-- this product is an effective anti-wrinkle product to assist our complete 24-hour home, skincare program.

The next step is to protect the skin and moisturize it at the same time. What do I mean when I say protect the skin?

Protect it against the sun’s rays. The OZONE layer in Florida is not good, thus allowing harmful sunrays to penetrate our skin.

The sun’s UV-B rays are the burning rays and easy to tell when you are exposed because you might feel a stinging sensation. But the UV-A sunray is not detectable and it is the ray that can cause cancer, skin sagging and wrinkles.

Do I have your attention yet?  Yes we must block both of the sunrays in order to protect our skin from aging.

We must have a natural base to mix the sun protector with. Most of the sun protectors sold over the counter, are in a base that is not friendly to the skin.

It is referred to as being comedogenic. A big word, but it just means that it clogs the pores.

Not all sun protectors are equal; sunscreens for example often only block the UV-B ray to keep you from burning. As I have just revealed, you need to block both the UV - B and UV - A sunrays and this is called a full spectrum sunblock.  To do that we have Titanium Dioxide, which is the full spectrum.  To apply it we add several drops of it in our moisturizer. Our moisturizer is healthy for the skin and is common to the body.

The moisturizer is pure Hyauralonic Acid. This substance is found in the spongy portion at the ends of bone; it is also in our heart valves.  It holds more moisture than any other known substance.

These two combined provide the perfect skin protection and moisturizer.

Finally for that extra dry skin on the face or anywhere on the body; You are Going to hug me for this ladies; We have ”EMU oil”.  You heard it correct-- EMU oil. This EMU bird from India is milked for it’s oil and--- it is the finest oil on our planet.

It has 50 different applications for the skin.
