Elephant interviews Dr Andrew Weil about his new skin care line for Origins. Origins mission is to promote beauty and wellness through good for you products and feel good experiences.
Dr. Weil also has published a new Food Pyramid for healthy aging. The main message the diet is delivering is, that if you change what you eat, you can avoid:
- Heart disease
- Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases
- Age-related disorders, including many cancers
- Autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis and lupus
Dr. Weil “Following an anti-inflammatory diet can help counteract the chronic inflammation that is a root cause of many serious diseases, including those that become more frequent as people age. It is a way of selecting and preparing foods based on science that can help people achieve and maintain optimum health over their lifetime.”” See the Food Pyramid after the jump.
