The Wrinkle Cleanse::4 Simple Steps to Softer, Younger-Looking Skin

Oh that mythical fountain of youth! We've longed to find it
since the sixteenth century when Juan Ponce de Leon sought
the mysterious waters that would cure aging.

Though we joke about that magical fountain, the truth is
that the "waters of youth" can actually be viewed as the
fluids within our own bodies that carry nutrients to our
cells, feeding them and flushing away cellular waste. If
those fluids contain even small amounts of toxins, cells
cannot excrete waste or take in nutrients efficiently.

In 1912 French physician and biologist Dr. Alex Carrel of
the Rockefeller Institute won a Nobel Prize in medicine for
his work on the immortality of the cell. Dr. Carrel
experimented with various tissues and organs, keeping them
alive in laboratory experiments with pure nutrients and
continuously cleansing away wastes. His research indicated
that aging takes place because minute amounts of toxic
substances build up in the blood and other fluids
throughout the body. This led Dr. Carrel to conclude: "The
cell is immortal. It is merely the fluids in which it
floats that degenerates." Renew this fluid at proper
intervals,and give the cells nourishment upon which to
feed, and so far as we know, the pulsation of life may go
on forever."

Wrinkled sagging skin begins with the plasma membrane. This
membrane is where most damage occurs. As this membrane
ages, it stiffens and loses its fluidity. When it hardens,
water can't pass through the cell wall with nutrients or
remove waste properly. Waste products build up and cause
inflammation, which is one of the primary contributing
factors in aging, along with sun damage, stress, and sleep
disturbances.

Would you like to stay young and healthy for as long as
possible? Cleanse the body and the cells have the best
chance to remain supple and young. Many people believe that
there is no way to halt the inevitable aging process-at
least not without expensive drugs, surgery, or high-tech
interventions. But what most people don't realize is that
they do have the power to look younger and feel
healthier-beginning with a simple cleanse program.

A diet rich in raw foods, vegetable juices, pure water,
whole grains, and lean protein can begin to gently cleanse
the body and protect it from inflammation and free radical
damage that causes wrinkles and other symptoms of aging.
Add to a healthy, whole foods diet periodic cleanses, and
you could literally watch the years roll off your face.

The four-step plan of the "Wrinkle Cleanse" is designed to
flush toxins from the body, carrying away toxins and
poisons. It outlines a detailed, easy-to-follow program to
help you rejuvenate your cells and transform your health:

STEP 1: The Quick Cleanses. These begin with an All-Day
Vegetable Juice Fast or a Two Day Raw-Food Rejuvenator,
both of which will enliven the body and help repair damaged
cells virtually overnight. These are an excellent
"kick-start" to the Wrinkle Cleanse Program or a
"quick-fix" to prepare for a special weekend or event.

STEP 2: The 14-Day Day Cleanse Diet. This portion of the
program introduces a diet that includes raw vegetables,
fruit, sprouts, vegetable juices, pure water (preferably
alkaline water), whole grains, legumes, leans proteins, and
other nutrient-rich foods. It eliminates the substances
that increase inflammation and contribute to wrinkles such
as simple and refined carbs, caffeine, soda pop, alcohol,
and junk food, resulting in firmer skin and improved muscle
tone.

STEP 3: The Cleansing Boost. These cleanses give the body
an opportunity to experience deep cleansing in the organs
of the body, such as the intestinal tract, liver,
gallbladder, and kidneys. These unique cleansing programs
help to flush away toxins that congest organs and promote
aging. The Cleansing Boost can totally transform your face
and overall health. You begin with a One to Two-Week Colon
Cleanse then go to the 7-Day Liver Cleanse, and/or The
7-Day Gallbladder Flush, and the Kidney Cleanse.

STEP 4: Energy-Boosting Supplement Program. This aspect of
the cleanse program outlines the vitamins and minerals that
help renew skin and increase vitality. Antioxidants such
as alpha- and beta-carotene, vitamin E, glutathione,
selenium, and alpha lipoic acid bind to free radicals and
keep them from damaging your cells.

You may think this sounds too simple. How could such an
inexpensive dietary program make a person look younger? I
can tell you firsthand it works. Give the Wrinkle Cleanse a
try. After all-you have nothing to lose but wrinkles. (C)
