Cécile - Health & beauty

Cécile - Health & beauty

Bonjour, my name is Cécile. I grew up in Provence between a grandmother creating perfumes and a naturopath mother. In this healthy and close upbringing, I learned how to listen to nature and discovered that our body is undoubtedly one of the greatest human resources. I’ve been a Parisian since I began my studies as a medical journalist. I discovered another world, fast and stressful but although exciting, where nature is too often absent. I started to divulge to my friends and readers, my secrets of youth or how to take charge of their health in order to get the most out of life. 

Valérie Espinasse è la coach sia delle attrici di grido, che dei personaggi televisivi, che degli sportivi di alto livello, ma segue anche persone non necessariamente famose. Ecco che ci spiega cosa vuol dire mangiare bene. “Vuol dire mangiare in modo da sentirmi in buona salute. La cosa prioritaria è la salute. Il che non esclude il piacere, il fatto di mettermi ai fornelli. Non è un qualcosa di restrittivo, né di triste, mangio bene, ma la mia alimentazione deve fare in modo che io stia in buona salute”…

Chi l’avrebbe creduto? Eh, sì… il succo di verdure e di frutta “estratto” a freddo (cioè estratto lentamente senza il calore creato dalla velocità di una centrifuga o di un classico spremifrutta elettrico) è diventato il nuovo antipasto vitaminizzato delle parigine nei locali di moda…

My friend Anne Lipscomb loves Paris and comes once a year for her pleasure but she also realised wonderful videos about the parisian woman, her art of life and her style. « I treasured the vibrant art and the cultural life of Paris, its fabulous food and café culture, and the beauty of its architecture and parks ». I would like to present you Anne and her last video « French women don’t get fat and now I don’t either. Or French Women Don’t Get Fat and Now I Don’t Either»…

Se c’e’ una cosa che i parigini amano, e lo si nota quotidianamente a Parigi, é lo sport! A cominciare dalla course à pied (camminata veloce o footing). Si parla di cosa si può facilmente vedere per le strade, beh, questo é il primo e forse più banale esempio di sport praticabile a Parigi. E non solo ovviamente...

Christophe de Jaeger famous French Doctor has developed a unique method combining diagnosis and action in order to preserve one’s health capital age well, and stay in good health as long as possible… Nutrition is one of his numerous tools, look at his after feats recommendation : “Firstly, opt for raw foods. This will allow your pancreas to fully recover, clean itself and lower inflammation. Consume uncooked foods three meals a day”....

Sbalzi d’umore al cambio di stagione? Vi sentite la testa stanca? Troppo nervosismo da stress? Allora, invece di precipitarvi sul lettino dello psicanalista, fate un salto al laboratorio di analisi più vicino, e portategli un bel campione di urine da esaminare… Se il risultato darà un deficit di uno o più neurotrasmettitori, è possibile ricorrere all’alimentazione, che – se studiata in modo adatto – potrà ricreare uno stato di equilibrio.

Why are Parisians so often seen sitting on a café terrace with a glass of Perrier and a slice of lemon, or going to the office with a big bottle of spring water sticking out of their bag? And at home, infusions and teas, whether or not for detox, feature prominently!

Who goes under the table? No, it’s not some new Parisian parlor game, but the celebration of Epiphany. Like every year, all of France is getting ready to “draw kings” in a few days’ time with the famous galette des rois (King Cake). The yearly tradition starts on January 6th and runs for several days. All French kids dream of the same thing; getting that one piece of cake that hides the magic trinket that will earn them the right to be crowned king.

The usual bad mood at the change of season? A little mental fatigue? Excessive nervousness from stress? But instead of running to lie down on the psychoanalyst's couch, rush to the nearest analysis laboratory holding a beautiful specimen of urine… Once you find a deficiency of one or more neurotransmitters, it's possible to intervene with the right foods to recreate a state of equilibrium…

Watercress soup, so Parisian

Watercress is good for you and French watercress soup is absolutely delicious. Watercress is considered a highly nutritious food that can effectively reinforce the vitamin and mineral content of your diet. A 75-gram serving (around 3oz) contributes 50% of the daily recommended intake of vitamins C and B9, 100% of  provitamin A , 15 % of calcium, 13 to 23 % of iron, and 5% of magnesium.
