Everything I ever learned about not looking old I learned from looking at my grandmother.
As much as I adored her, that’s how much I didn’t want to age like her.
I was probably about 16 when I noticed how wrinkled she was (her health was poor as well). It was at that time I realized how much I was like her. I asked my mom why she looked so old. Her reply was because she didn’t take care of herself.
Well that was enough for me to start my search on how to take care of my skin and my health. I read every magazine I could get my hands on and looked into as many kitchen remedies as I could.
My next step was to go to the public library – yes it was the prehistoric, pre-internet era. And that’s when I began learning about healthy living and natural recipes for maintaining a youthful appearance.
I started to also learn about clinical research and studies, and my searches became even more valuable. You see, as my passion continued to grow I received the opportunity to write for a few friends' printed newsletter (over 20 years ago).
Then in 2007, I got a chance to develop skincare products and dietary supplements for a world-renowned, anti-aging doctor. Not to be confused with a dermatologist or plastic surgeon – this doctor works from the inside out. So now I connect to two worlds (my passion + my work).
Throughout the years I've written for many different publications and been interviewed by many media outlets. I've written about and developed dozens of breakthrough solutions - from harnessing the life-extending powers of telomeres and balancing women's hormones, to reversing vitamin deficiencies and slowing the effects of aging (the list goes on).
I love sharing my finds and ideas with family, friends and anyone that wants to listen.
In 2014 I started my own e-newsletter and website, www.antiagenaturally.com and have authored three books: Ten Years Younger, The Anti-Aging Secrets of Hollywood and Taking Control of Joint Pain. I am also a member of the American College of Nutrition.
Jump to 2017 - many people through the years have asked me when I was going to start my own products line. So DeRose Health seemed like a natural progression of my 36 years of experience and education.
I’m so happy and excited to be bringing to you my products - products which I would recommend to my family and friends, with the best ingredients chosen by me and backed by science.
If you are new here … welcome. If you’ve been with me a while … welcome back.
Either way I hope you enjoy and benefit from my passion and journey.
For a healthier you!
