I know that you have heard that old adage, “You are as old as you feel.” Some of us females have a different interpretation of that “You are as old as you look.”

It could be a bit of a challenge to convince others that you feel like a teenager if your face says you look like an old woman. So how about feeling GOOD and looking YOUNG. Sounds like a winning combination!!!

We invent and use technology to make jobs easier. Before there was a food processor, a knife did part of the work. But it was never the same. Before there was a blender, people pureed things using a sieve, or what-ever method they learned.

In the scope of skin-care, technology is not lacking.

Every now and again, in researching and learning about NATURAL HEALING, I come across some information which amazes me.

I believe that I have known about “ALOES” AKA “ALOE VERA” my whole life.

I have known of its topical uses for healing cuts and burns, and also of taking it internally for cleansing.

The gel inside this cactus is believed to have great health benefits.

The gel inside this cactus is believed to have great health benefits.

I have seen people travel with an aloe plant or two to grow in their houses and apartments in North America. I have also seen apartment with too many aloe plants because I guess, us Caribbean people, just have to have access to aloes.

A few years ago, when I first realized that I had celiac disease, the only thing that brought some healing to my intestinal trauma, was drinking aloe on an empty stomach.

From this exposure, (article I read) I learned that ALOE VERA is much more beneficial to our health than I was previously aware. You can introduce yourself to the internal benefits of ALOE VERA in this form.

GMO’s are a big part of our food supply

 Do you know what is in it?

Do you know what is in it?


GMO stands for:- Genetically Modified Organism.

This can be a plant or animal. It is when genetic engineers merge DNA’s from different species to alter the composition and features of a plant or animal. (That is the simple explanation. Much more complex)

It goes a bit further than traditional cross-breeding since the products are unstable and cannot occur naturally. I discovered some scary things in my research on GMO”s, and some interesting things about hybrid fruits.

Crossbreeding is more like grafting trees, and making hybrids of plants to achieve things like seedless watermelons, PLUOTS (cross between a plum and apricot), and a grapefruits (pummel, sweet orange).

Hybrids usually produce bigger and/or sweeter fruits.

Genetic modification goes a bit further by manipulating the genes and DNA to achieve much more complex results.

Hear how “THE DOCTORS” summarized it briefly.
