Fall has arrived, which means it is nearly time to bundle up and prepare our bodies for the cool weather to come. The immune system is a large collection of different cells whose primary goal is to protect the body and attack foreign organisms. Keeping these natural defenses strong is very important for transitioning into the new season.  Dr. Christopher Calapai, D.O., a New York City Osteopathic Physician board certified in family and anti-aging medicine, shares his strategies on how to keep strong for the transitioning season.

Exercise on a daily basis: Dr. Calapai suggest that a minimum should be a half hour of walking continuously so as to increase oxygenation to tissues as well as deliver vitamins minerals and hormones to these cells.

Be sure to get good deep restorative sleep: At least six hours of sleep every night is just what the doctor ordered. Sleep deprivation not only makes us tired, but decreases function in almost all organs.

Maintain a clean home environment:  Dr. Calapai recommends a HEPA filtration systems to capture particulate matter, including dust, allergens or organisms which can make us ill.  In areas where we spend the most time, we need to clean surfaces with products which can kill germs or viruses.

Another designer fragrance has come to market.  Amo Ferragamo, from Italian fashion house, Ferragamo, launched Saturday night in Milan at the Palazzo Mezzanotte, home to the Italian stock exchange.  Amor, which translates to I Love, serves as a double-entendre, drawing from the suffix of brand’s name.  “Ferragamo is a brand of passion and a brand of love,” said the company’s president and chairman, Ferruccio Ferragamo, at the world premiere.  “I think the name could not have been more appropriate. My father started his career making shoes but his dream was to dress women, from head to toe. Actually from toe to head.”
     The scent, created by nose, Marie Salamagne, opens with notes of black currant, campari and rosemary.  Middle notes feature jasmine, mate, and rhubarb, while vanilla, ambroxan, and sandalwood complete the fragrance.  British model and actress, Suki Waterhouse, who serves as the face of Ferragamo, appears in Amo Ferragamo’s film campaign, directed by Ellen von Unwerth.
