I am thrilled to read about this new anti-aging drink! Empress' Secret is an exciting find because it contains many wonderfully supportive ingredients such as: goji berries, jujube dates, dragon eye, lotus seeds, and ginseng not all are easy to obtain. I've been using goji berries and ginseng, and many other super antioxident whole foods and herbs but sourcing always seems to be an issue. And I'd never heard of lotus seeds until now...
All of the products I recommend are geared toward health, wholeness, and adding a youthful glow to your skin - face and body! I've included a link to the newest anti-aging drink and other organic drinks you can order, as well as, a bottled pure mountain spring water - all at the bottom of this article.
In particular, Empress' Secret supports and adheres to the principles of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) philosophy. TCM employs a philsophy which I also follow, where everything is connected and interdependent in the body - and in the Universe.
Speaking of TCM, I learned years ago from my acupuncture doctor that my "spleen chi" (not just the spleen organ but the spleen energetic system) was weak and that I must strive to strengthen it. The spleen chi allows the body to utilize the nutrients one takes into the body.
Having a good strong spleen chi is very important to women so as to maintain balanced hormones. If you have low libido, unexplained weight gain, hot flashes, or other menopausal symptoms you should probably consult your health and wellness practitioner as these can all be signs of hormone imbalance. NOTE: I am not a doctor but have consulted with many over the years and even my western medical allopathic gynecologist (GYN) told me after years of dedicated study she knows science does not have hormones figured out - yet.
A quick Google search indicates science indeed continues to observe and quantify new discoveries about hormones such as: this article which, makes me very glad I promote organic beverages. Then another from a post dated in 2010 that noted a "...discovery of 20 new hormones... not previously known to be secreted into the blood by human fat cells...".
So, in an effort to balance my hormones and strengthen my spleen chi, I've been drinking raw juices, eating raw fruits and veggies, drinking fermented and probiotic drinks like Kombucha, and making really super healthy smoothies. I've also boosted the health of my spleen chi through adding every superfood I can get my hands on to my diet - as well as, detoxing through colon cleansing but that's another topic! LOL
In addition to the above ingredients lotus seed is a rare addition to the Empress' Secret formula and one which I was over-the-top happy to find since my wellness doctor just told me a few days ago I should supplement with water and herbs to strengthen one of my kidneys. Lotus seeds are also reported to, "nourish the spleen" and aid in treating "insomnia or restlessness" and these are also of special importance to me. If that wasn't enough they can also reduce blood pressure because the bitter part of the seed contains isoquinoline alkaloids.
From the company website, "Lotus seeds are often a vital component when combined with other herbs to create traditional formulas within Chinese medicine. Combined with Goji Berry, Jujube Dates and Dragon Eye Fruit, the health benefits of each single ingredient are doubled or tripled."
As well, from the company FAQ I found, "All the ingredients we put in our products are high quality natural herbs. All our products are made with no sugar, no sweeteners, no artificial flavoring added and 100% preservatives, Gluten free and non-GMO."
I prefer alternative health / natural health experts such as: a naturopaths and acupuncturists / TCM doctors, and intuitive healers / shamans to so-called western (allopathic medicine) practitioners. My dad has been known to say, medical doctors are just "practicing medicine" anyway.
I love to use natural alternatives, both to prevent and heal: acupuncture - fantastic for pain relief and to help the body heal from chronic dis-ease), healing touch / energy medicine, yoga, massage, and essential oils. My thought process is: no one knows my body better than me!
Typically for anti-aging, I recommend performing natural and easy-to-do facial isometric exercises to look and feel younger (keep face and neck toned), eating a diet rich in wonderful green vegetables (to boost immune system), and drinking pure water to keep your skin hydrated, and remove toxins! I feel anti-aging drinks with marvelous nutritional and healing qualities will be an up and coming good addition for many.
I am a natural holistic prevention / alternative wellness activist - I promote healthy living far more from food, drink, and positive outlook than from "pills" because pills must first be broken down by your liver before the medicine, supplement, or vitamin can be absorbed by your digestive system and supplied to the rest of your body via the blood. This also accounts for why each of us process pills, foods, drinks, etc. differently.
