Out From Under the FDA ’s Heel
A medical revolution is happening as we speak… And the great state of Texas is leading the charge. It started because people like you finally got fed up with the chokehold the FDA has on medicine. Let me explain… The FDA is controlled by bureaucrats who were hired from Big Pharma and the medical establishment. They refuse to approve life-saving therapies without years of tightly controlled clinical trials. In the meantime, real people are suffering. And even dying. But Texas is on track to become the first state to explicitly back stem cell therapies. And it’s about time states took this power away from...

Outfox Your “ Aging ” Gene
Some people just seem to have all the luck when it comes to getting old. Like my 83-year-old patient who drinks a little too much Scotch, but still has a 3-handicap in golf. Or the 108-year-old who goes through a gallon of ice cream every week. If you ask them how they do it, they’ll give credit to their good genes… and there is some truth to it. We all have something called a FOXO3 gene. It helps protect us against aging. German researchers at the Christian-Albrechts University studied the FOXO3 gene in 380-plus centenarians, more than 600 people in their 90s, and more than 700 people between the ages of...

Rooibos: Better Than Green Tea For Many Reasons
When I hiked Table Mountain on my last trip to South Africa, the locals told me about an herb that is better than green tea that kept them disease-free. African Bushmen have used this herb since before recorded history, but it’s still pretty rare here in America. Studies on this plant are being done all over the world.
