    Inside Outside has started a Fan Page on facebook.  It will be one way we can keep in touch and spread the word about the Inside Outside Way of Life!!  We will be posting short notes about the really essential things you need to be doing to take your health and appearance to a new level!

    The Dermaroller!  Complete line of Dermaroller Products and Services available!!




    We have had a number of clients start using the Home Dermaroller to improve absorption of their specialty skin products with great results!!  The Home Dermaroller, used once or twice a week will improve absorption of your specialty products by 200 times!!  So these products will finally be more effective and work faster!!  I have recently had a Medical Dermaroller treatment on myself with the 1mm and 1.5mm devices.  I was able to get very good anesthesia using a Triple Anesthetic Cream so the discomfort on a scale of 1-10 was about a 2, so don't let pain be a factor!!  This device has taken the health and appearance of my skin to a new level and many of you have commented on the health of my skin!  Dermaroller treatments have been used in Europe for about 8 years for a variety of age and sun related skin conditions and also acne scarring.  The treatment may be just as effective as more expensive and painful fractional laser resurfacing treatments such as the Pixel and the Fraxel with virtually no downtime. There is a home version of the Dermaroller which markedly improves absorption of products and a medical treatment version which is more aggressive, done by me and is aimed at Collagen Induction for skin rejuvenation. We will be using the NeoCutis Processed Cell Proteins discussed in this newsletter as part of our protocol.

    Check out the Dermaroller!

     Our New Fish Oil!! Life Extension Omega 3 with Olive Fruit Extract and Sesame Lignans!!


    Going forward we will be offering the Life Extension Omega-3 with Olive Fruit Extract and Sesame Lignans.  The Maintenance dose continues to be 4 Capsules a day, so one bottle should last you a month.  Life Extension has markedly enhanced their Omega-3 Product by adding Olive Oil Polyphenols to their product.  These Polyphenols are responsible for many of the beneficial effects of Olive Oil including elevating HDL (High Density Lipoprotein) levels and lowering Triglycerides!   These effects work with the benefits of Omega-3 for the development and progression of atherosclerosis, the primary killer of men and women in the United States.  These  Polyphenols are also anti-inflammatory and make our blood platelets less sticky so they have a mild anti-clotting effect comparable to aspirin.  Our Article of the Month is a recent study which may have discovered the way Omega-3s improve health and survival.  The Omega-3 seems to protect our DNA from the gradual deterioration which occurs as we age. I for one, like to know my DNA is being protected!!!

     February is the Official American Heart Month


    Cardiovascular diseases, including stroke, are our nation's No. 1 killer. To urge Americans to join the battle against these diseases, since 1963 Congress has required the president to proclaim February "American Heart Month." As a screening tool for the presence of Heart Disease everyone needs to have a Calcium CT Scan.  Ask Dr. Christian how to schedule yours!

     Dr. Loren Cordain, Author of the Paleo Diet and Paleo Diet Blog!

    A Paleolithic Diet based on peer-reviewed, scientific research of what the most accurate Paleolithic Nutrition eating really is


    Dr. Loren Cordain is a member of the faculty of the Department of Health and Exercise Science at Colorado State University.  During the past two decades he has researched the effects of diet on human health and specifically examined links between modern diets and disease.  I met Dr. Cordain back in 1998 when attending a seminar on nutrition in Boulder.  He has a nice newsletter which gives great data about all the health issues facing us today and the radical changes in the foods we are eating versus the foods we are genetically designed to eat. Check out his site and sign up for his newsletter.   There are many articles for download on his Published Research Page for free!! His recent newsletter had a nice article discussing the differences between grass fed and grain fed beef. I have liked the grass fed beef from Shudde Ranch in Sabinal, Texas.

    "Seasonal affective Disorder" Do you need Blue Light to combat the Blues!!


    Years ago, I personally declared war on the Sun because of the development of several basal cell cancers, one of which has recent recurred and required a fairly extensive resection.  So I have intentionally avoided the Sun and am ever attentive to sun protection with Antioxidant Topical Products such as the Skin Ceuticals Phloretic C Ferrulic or CE Ferrulic plus the usual sunscreens and sunblocks. In addition, my long work hours have left virtually no time for daily exposure to sunlight.  Seasonal Affective Disorder is a well recognized syndrome thought related to a cumulative lack of sunlight.  It is common in higher latitudes when they have very short days and can occur also in sunnier climates when there is little sun exposure.  The lack of a daily dose of "light" can lead to mood and depressive changes, appetite changes and some sleeping issues.  Recently, I have been treating myself to a daily 45min treatment with a Phillips Blue Light device and have seen some improvement in alertness and mood.  It delivers pure blue light in the 450-495nm wavelength.  The retina has receptors for this wavelength and some think it is because the sky is generally blue in the daytime so this would be the signal we might best respond to. I get my Vitamin D from supplements!  Ultraviolet B Rays from the sun help produce Vitamin D in our skin.

    We don't have our own Polyface Farm featured in the last newsletter around San Antonio but there are places where the local farmers get together and market their goods.  These websites list them and their addresses.  Everything is fresh grown and the vendors are all registered with the Texas Department of Agriculture.  My Daughter recently visited a Polyface Like farm out in Marfa, Texas which also has a newsletter!  Click on the icons to check them out.  I Like the beef from the Shudde Ranch in Sabinal mentioned above!

     Check out Polyface Farm if you missed it!!  

    NeoCutis Products now available, Fetal Growth Factors, talk about young!!


    "NeoCutis gives a new meaning to "New Skin". This Swiss based research company working with the University Hospital of Lausanne has developed a line of products which contain what they refer to as PSP or Processed Cell Proteins.  They took a sample of fetal skin and cultured it.  The result was a complex of 18 different fetal growth factors, antioxidants and cytokines which are abundant in fetal tissues and are associated with skin development, repair and renewal.  These proteins were used to help heal deep burns and other poorly healing wounds without skin grafts!!  Now these same proteins are available in a fine line of products which will complement any skin care program of rejuvenation.  We plan to use these products with the Dermaroller discussed in the second article of this newsletter.
