Healing Body & Hair Oils:Rejuvenation For Hair & Skin

Ayurvedic Hair & Skin Healing

I86514854 spent 3 years of my life deeply involved in YOGA,  I was hoping it would work internally to fight off my medical issues and for 3 years I almost  thought I had beat it for life ( unfortunately, not true). But, for those 3 years ( and to this day) I was enveloped in a form of medicine followed in India for over 5,000 years and many people in southern California find to be extremely effective, called AYURVEDIC Medicine. The one main point that gave me that push I needed to give it a try was the fact that it is over 5000 years old, it was based on almost exclusively natural theories  and the entire Indian race uses it with extremely positive results .
The main texts from which the medicine is drawn analyzes the human body in terms of earth, water, fire, air and ether as well as the 3 bodily humors (wind, bile and phlegm ). I can’t tell you how hesitant I was, but every celebrity I knew was and is …deeply involved in it. For some strange reason Celebrities get first hand knowledge on new - effective and immaculate beauty-health-skin & hair treatments wwwway before any of us. As a perfect example of this, I grew up with Melanie Griffith as my best friend since the age of 19 her boyfriend and mine were best friends – so we ended up living together for a couple years ( a very long time ago). We would workout together 3-4 days per week the drive from Malibu to Hollywood was a minimum of 1 hour and when we were together we never noticed the length of the drive. You know what we did 35 years ago?   
we took the class from the husband & wife team of  Mr. & Mrs. Pilates (don’t remember their first names!)BXP158329
About 8 years ago when the trend hit the masses, I laughed & was completely stunned. I have my reasons why I think that happens but it really doesn’t matter. Just remember this when in 10-15-20 years you hear about AYURVEDIC medicine. I have a feeling it will take 10 years {or less} to sink into our society. . . . so that is why I am bringing it to you now. It works and its on its way to main street USA. Let Gleam be your first example and if you haven’t tried GLeam I would highly recommend you do, no matter what type of hair you have….its a miracle in a bottle and it works on all types of hair -  yes, it even works on Oily hair…..its the Number 1 Selling product at Killer Strands!71086796
Jump on and begin the practice early, although Ayurvedic medicine did not cure my highly rare bone disease  - -   many people with this disease don’t live past 1 year and I have had 9 years – and I do attribute that to following Ayurvedic medicine practices.   So for all of you and YOUR HAIR . . .lets just tap into what they have learned and make the most of it for a healthy body and healthy strong hair!
Oils are a mainstay
       in  Indian  households
Ayurvedic medicine is a popular form of health care in India, where it is taught in over 100 colleges. It has gained recognition in the West as a form of alternative medicine with both USC and UCLA  building new and growing Ayurvedic medicine Centers to work alongside Western medicine. The last time I was there, they set me up with an Ayurvedic Therapy appointment in between my regular appointments, and I swear I almost fell off my chair. Now, I reveal my little trick that I never really explained in detail. OILS – real earth grown oils are a main part of the AVURVEDIC Medicine basis. That is why I developed GLEAM. If you have ever see any Indian Women 97390475 they all have incredibly healthy – strong – shiny- gorgeous hair. Being as they believe so much in oils in and ‘of’ the body, I just put 2 and 2 together and decided that had to be a key factor in why American women do not have healthy – strong –shiny  head of hair..  as well as moist – glowing SKIN.  So about  7-8 years ago I came up with my first version of GLEAM, it has evolved into what it is today and the stories I receive DAILY from people all over the world . . . make me feel I have  finally mastered the formula.
002 Oleation description
Now, I feel it is time to work on the skin which I firmly believe will help many of you solve other issues in your bodies. Please, I am not so bold to think I can cure anyone’s cancer or anyone’s severe life threatening diseases. NO, that is not what I am referring to. About 2 months ago, I began using Killer Strands new product, GLISTEN , the new body oil to the outside and taking 2 Tablespoons of oil per day, – internally.. and with just 1 person – ME, I am convinced this works. I just didn’t want to ask people to “injest things” until I tried it myself.  (I’m like the mad Dr. Frankenstein of hair repair! ! ! ). . . ( the ingestible oil name remains a secret for another 3 weeks while a couple of my friends give it a test run……!
one remains nameless for another couple weeks !! ) 86483336
I applied Glisten twice a day to my arms and legs . . . and drank 1 Tablespoon of the (G) Oil morning and night . . . . for 2 months. OK, boys and girls soon we will have hair like the Indian women!
The reason I say this is, I am a very sick human being, if this is working on me….I just cannot imagine what it will do for a healthy individual ! I am very excited to find out though!
This oil is completely different than GLEAM, its a lot more “oilier” definitely not for the hair – so I see why certain oils are used for certain parts of the body.56961651
Oil is as essential to ayurveda as it is invisible in western health /hair & skin care, which sometimes advocates that we avoid oils in food and skin/hair care products. In Ayurveda, affordable and accessible medicinal oils are a central component in treatments and are considered the secret to well-being and longevity. Even all Hindu rituals are based on ayurvedic medicine says Dr. Vasant Lad (an ayurvedic physician I actually met when I was in the middle of the  time-frame I was heavily involved in studying and following it. He says that in Ayurveda, oil used externally and internally not only can prevent illness in the first place, but can also keep diseases from recurring.G2_01_17_06 119
Oil massage lubricates and nourishes the body from the outside – IN. It enhances skin tone and improves circulation , digestion and elimination. It helps release toxins from the body and induces sound sleep.
When cells become dry, they look OLD”     In Indian philosophy….oil fuels ‘agni’ (fire) the biological force responsible for metabolism. Health and vitality begin with a strong AGNI, which helps us break down food and assimilate nutrients. Without it, body tissues don’t receive the nutrients they need and immune system cannot function. fdc922971
Agni can be nourished internally by ingesting oil in teaspoons, which nourishes nervous tissue and enables the mind to function. Agni can be nourished externally by oil massage (snehana)  In fact, massaging the skin with oil  is as vital to ayurveda as ANTIBIOTICS are to western practitioners. A famous ayurvedic scholar with degree in chemistry & botany tells us that according to ayurvedic physicians, substances absorbed into the skin affect the dhatus ( or bodily tissues). All 7 dhatus ( which range from blood & muscle to reproductive tissue) are functionally linked to each layer of skin. Because a problem with any body tissue shows up on the skin, oil massage also directly benefits these dhatus.
Personally I think the combination of both is what will finally make health care system in the USA own the perfect medical solution to many diseases…I’ve always felt we need both.   I have seen so many people healed from just Ayurvedic medicine alone. So am very excited to bring the concept to you – in the manner that will benefit your hair and skin. To be honest if you have been following 10,000HEADS, as best you can. . . . you are following Ayurvedic medicine. I worried ( a long time ago) that people would not be as open to the name “Ayurvedic” so I tweaked the  name and what it stands for by coming up with the 10,000HEADS name and its 14 Step Regimen.fst079014
The more one becomes involved in Yoga, the very natural next step becomes to learn as much as you can about Ayurvedic Medicine . Ayurvedic medicine emphasizes hygiene, yoga, herbal preparations, exercise and oils.
Essentially, the theory says that the human body was filled with four basic substances, called four humors, which are in balance when a person is healthy. All diseases and disabilities resulted from an excess or deficit of one of these four humors. These deficits could be caused by vapors which were breathed in or absorbed by the body. The four humors were identified as black bile, yellow bile, phlegm, and blood.
Ayurvedic physicians rely heavily on oleation, using medicated oils for treatments such as shirodhara, often prescribed for nervous system disorders, as well as panchakarma. Although these treatments should be supervised by an experienced practitioner , ayurveda allows you to take your health into your own hands with simple oil treatments done at home. Using the proper oils for your skin type just a few minutes each day can go a long way toward promoting health and natural radiance.
Even though Western medicine has no equivalent to oil treatments, these ayurvedic therapies are powerful medicine for the stress-related problems pervasive in our culture. 
I was really trying to do this whole message in 1 post and it is just not going to make it, I will really try to finish this over the week-end . . . if not then – then beginning of the week .78022271
What I have finally produced is one of 6  Total Body Oils for the skin. There is nothing like oils for the skin of the human body and hair for repair and rejuvenation I’m sure you all see that now. Both of those body parts  do nothing but flourish with certain properly chosen oils for specific reason are used on both the external parts in a massaging method of application and the internal parts which merely need a tablespoon in the morning and in the evening swallowed.  If you really can’t handle it, you can put it on some lettuce and make it a oil & vinegar salad dressing with some lemon squeezed on top ! But it needs to be downed twice daily.
I will complete this post as I still have a way to go and I want to get part up tonight. We have a brand new oil that is  a partner to this post.  GLISTEN .
GLISTEN is a combination oil of 2 oils, 6 Herbal Extracts with an oil base, Aloe Vera, 2 Forms of Vitamin E, and is scented with 2 types of Orange essential oils – Blood Orange and Valencia Orange essential Oils.
Watch for the remainder of this post so you get to hear the entire picture. . . . . am exhausted……..

  1. I am really excited for the next part! You've pretty much sold me on healing oils.


  2. When I became a nurse 26 years ago the thought was that nothing could be absorbed into the body's blood stream via the skin. Now we know differently! Many meds are now in a trans-dermal form, absorption facilitated by the lipid layer of our skin. Putting the right oils on the skin can promote health just as putting on skin lotions with chemicals can lead to health problems.
    As for oil ingestion I have found that people in general are oil phobic unless it is in the form of French Fries or burgers. People still buy fat free processed plastic foods and wonder why they are sick all the time!
    BTW, this may not be ayurvedic medicine, but an old but effective remedy for removing gall stones is to drink 8 oz. of olive oil followed by a quart of apple juice!
    Anyway, looking forward to this special ayurvedic oil that you are trying out right now!

  3. Dear KC, will we ever be able to see your hair? :) I have been reading your blog for almost a year now and I am curious to what your hair looks like :P

  4. i bet the oil that u intake is kolonji
    or not
    i'm an indian,i know


  5. great info re: Ayurveda. re: Pilates, I believe Joseph and Clara remained in New York until his death, but Ron Fletcher was personally approved by Joseph Pilates to open a studio in Los Angeles and teach there in the early 70s. Perhaps *that's* who you took your classes from, as Joseph stayed in NYC, bound to the NYC Ballet as he was, and did not travel to teach Pilates.

  6. this is very exciting! I definitely believe in oils, my indian friends have always sworn by their use.

    by the way, did melanie griffith name her daughter after you???


  7. OMG Anonymous,
    YES ! ! ! YES ! ! As soon as I read that I went no--YES, YEAH THAT's Who it was, and there was some girlfriend or wife or ??? RON FLETCHER was who we took it from, it was like $100.- $150/hour (total insanity for 35 years ago) we had 1 on 1 lessons.......... the 2 would switch off between us. Yes, you got it, Ron Fletcher...
    Good job, thank you
    thank you
    keeping me straight and on the up and up. . . .
    ( actually my memory has deteriorated so bad - I was thankful I even remembered that for writing the story )
    but thanks....
    once again
