If you've ever known anyone who had to undergo kidney dialysis, you know that it's no fun. Robert Harrington reveals simple ways to keep your kidneys clean and healthy.
Kidney cleanses have been utilized since ancient times to keep the kidneys free of calcium deposits. These calcium accumulations can sometimes increase to the size of a kidney stone. You’ll usually know when you have a kidney stone because the pain can be excruciating. Thankfully, both kidney cleanses and consuming essential foods for kidney health are sound ways to prevent complications.
The kidneys are very delicate organs which filter the blood — 24/7 — over the course of a lifetime. Therefore, it really helps to conduct a regular cleanse either by way of one’s diet or through the use of a formal herbal cleanse program. The herbal cleanse is designed to gently dissolve the calcium deposits and other accumulations which can build up. Read more

Our ancestors protected themselves against sun damage without chemical sunscreen for thousands of Years. Edward Group reveals the secret to protecting your skin without slathering on dangerous chemicals.
Nothing beats the feeling of pure, warm sunlight on your skin, especially after a cold and dreary winter. We often take for granted the life-giving power of the sun and completely ignore its many health benefits. On one hand, sun helps us to produce vitamin D, a hormone necessary for bone health and optimal immune function; on the other, too much sunlight can also cause deleterious effects on skin elasticity and function, aggressively facilitating the early signs of aging. Having these extreme oppositions means we need to find a balance between getting enough and avoiding damage resulting from overexposure. And, regardless of what you may have heard in the past, this doesn’t always have to require the use of sunscreen. Read more

“Is that you, Daddy?”
It was a good question, from my youngest daughter, who stumbled across my corporate I.D. card in my wallet. The picture was taken in 2003, right after I started at Men’s Health.
She was asking the question not because I looked 8 years younger, but because I looked 20 pounds heavier.
“It’s me, sweetie,” I said.
She looked at the picture inquisitively. The 2015 version of me isn’t all that different from the guy on the I.D. card, and yet she hardly recognized me. In short: Read more

New research can now identify markers of diseases like Alzheimer's much earlier than ever before. Learn how to protect yourself starting today.
When a recent Northwestern University study discovered the hallmark Alzheimer’s proteins in the brains of 20 year olds, many wondered: Is brain health a younger person's concern?
After all, these are the youngest human brains to date in which amyloids, the signature proteins, have been found. And while the majority of people impacted by dementia and Alzheimer’s are older than 65, experts will tell you that taking action now could help prevent damage down the line.
You may have more control than you realize, says Gary Small, M.D., author of Two Weeks to a Younger Brain: “The brain is sensitive to stimulation from moment to moment—if we are engaging certain neural circuits, they strengthen—if we neglect others, we don’t give the brain the opportunity to strengthen,” Small says. “But whether that impacts one’s risk of Alzheimer’s, we just don’t know.” Read more
