Fireside Chat: Collagen Through Lifestages

Fireside Chat: Collagen Through Lifestages

Collagen is an essential scaffold protein that gives smoothness and elasticity to skin, however its production declines with age. Collagen-based supplements have become a keystone in beauty and the management of ageing, with a growing number of scientific studies show exciting evidence that it is possible to rejuvenate ageing or damaged skin, improve function of worn joints, and support personal wellbeing and vitality. This fireside chat looks at the science of collagen through the lifestages, discussing how collagen needs change, and how ingestible collagen supplements and collagen boosters may help us stay youthful and radiant.

    Secrets to Radiant Health and Ageless Beauty

    Secrets to Radiant Health and Ageless Beauty

    As a plastic surgeon, Chrisine Horner, MD specialized in helping people turn back the clock and look their best. Her tool kit was composed of surgery, lasers, and chemicals to alter her patient's external appearance. It contained nothing to improve their "inside" age or health. When Dr. Horner was introduced to the ancient holistic system, Ayurveda, she was shocked to see that she looked 10 years younger and also had never felt better in her life after only 48 hours of treatments! It was then that she realized the radiant youthful glow that her patients sought could not be achieved with plastic surgery--it could only appear as a result of radiant health. In this presentation, Dr. Horner reveals the secrets of Ayurveda along with the most effective research-proven natural approaches-foods, supplements, lifestyle choices, and new innovative technologies that can help one achieve an extraordinary state of health, radiant beauty, and the pleasure of a long life.
