New, Natural ED Treatment
There is a new natural therapy for erectile dysfunction. That comes as a big surprise to most patients who suffer from ED — because they’ve been told again and again their only solution is a Big Pharma booster like Viagra, or that they should just accept their condition as a part of aging. Common ED Beliefs ED has become so common, it’s the accepted norm in men of “a certain age.” It now affects 30 million men in America. But it shouldn’t. Age is not the issue. It’s the most natural thing in the world to have sex well into your 70s and 80s. ED Causes Your doctor has probably told ...

Turmeric: Bali’s Anti-Cancer Tonic

Better Than Tylenol To Ease Arthritis Pain
No dose of Tylenol is going to ease your arthritis pain — no matter what your doctor tells you. It’s important to know the benefits and risks associated with each medication to determine which ones are right for you. And a team of researchers from the University of Bern, in Switzerland, has just proved it. The researchers gathered data from 74 randomized trials involving 58,500 patients. And what they discovered was that acetaminophen — marketed as Tylenol in America and Paracetamol in Europe, Australia and elsewhere — has no impact at all on osteoarthritis pain, no matter what the dosage.

Vitamin D Deficiency Is As Dangerous As Smoking
The advice you’re getting from your doctor, the TV and even the Surgeon General is so wrong, it’s scary. They’re all busy telling you to stay out of the sun.

Nutrients To Energize Your Mitochondria
For more than a decade now, I’ve been boosting my patients’ mitochondria with two super-nutrients — CoQ10 and pyrroloquinoline quinone, or PQQ. You see, if you keep your mitochondria healthy, your body will have all the energy it’ll ever need to stay strong and ward off the diseases of aging. The problem is that mainstream medicine is lagging way behind, so you won’t hear about this from your doctor. But along with your telomeres, the cellular time keepers at the ends of your chromosomes, your mitochondria are key components in the anti-aging equation. Keeping them safe and charged is essenti...

Vitamin That Prevents Diabetes

Nutrient for Tinnitus Treatment
If you’re suffering from tinnitus, I’m pretty sure doctors and ENT specialists have told you something like: “I’m afraid you’re just going to have to live with it” or “It’s just age-related hearing loss.” What is tinnitus? Tinnitus, the constant ringing, thundering, whooshing or whistling in the ears, is aggravating and nerve-racking. It robs you of sleep. It shatters your focus and concentration. And it drowns out your hearing, because of all the background noise in your head. Tinnitus is not a disease, but rather a symptom of some other underlying health condition. Ma...

Better than Aspirin for Your Heart
If you’ve been diagnosed with heart disease, the chances are you’ve been told to take low-dose aspirin every day as a preventative measure against heart attack and stroke. It’s most commonly prescribed for patients with congestive heart failure. This is the inability of your heart to pump as much blood as your body needs. And this is a big worry to me, because there is very little evidence that aspirin helps. In fact, regular use of aspirin — even baby aspirin — can do you more harm than good.

Men are from Venus?
One of the most talked about speakers at my recent 2015 Palm Beach Anti-Aging Summit was New York Times bestselling author Dr. John Gray, who wrote the groundbreaking book “Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus.” Dr. Gray is an expert in understanding the differences between the sexes and teaching men and women to live in harmony by acknowledging them. During his speech, Dr. Gray revealed that those differences even extend to how environmental factors (including stress) can impact men and women differently. I’ve seen this phenomenon in my own research. The most obvious example is how our modern enviro...

Dr. Sears Saves Hospital Patient?
Since I started practicing “telemedicine” at my Sears Institute for Anti-Aging Medicine — the response has been just incredible. Telemedicine is the use of medical information exchanged from one site to another via electronic communications to improve a patient’s health status. You can now have private consultations with me or my clinical team from the comfort of your own home — through a live video stream. Tele-patients use tele-health service to receive advice or treatment from another location. I’m delighted for all my new patients that have already registered to become “tele-pa...

Men’s virility… much more than low-T
A low level of testosterone (“low-T”) is a huge problem for my older male patients… and it goes far beyond a decline in sexual drive. How low-T affects your health… Low-T associated with aging also causes decreased muscle mass and bone density, reduced insulin resistance and energy, and even depression. But going to a “low-T” clinic is not going to help you. These places are often fly-by-night operations that hand out “prescriptions” for testosterone that are rubber stamped by doctors who don’t even see the men coming into the clinics. Even worse, they don’t ...

Venus and Mars Hormones
Men are from Mars. Women are from Venus. This one book from best-selling author John Gray built a publishing empire. Even if you’ve never read it, I’m sure you’ve heard of it. Released in 1993, this book went on to sell more than 50 million copies and is considered the “highest ranked work of non-fiction of the 1990s.” When I read the book years ago, I remember the clarity it brought to relationships, and how we can make them stronger and more meaningful. Today, John Gray has added an anti-aging component to his books and lectures, and that’s why I’m writing to you today. Just last...

Yoga Can Naturally Heal Crippling Injuries Without Surgery
When you feel her calming energy, you would never guess Kata went through a crippling car accident that left her in constant pain. At the time, the damage to her neck and spine was so severe, her doctors started preparing her for multiple surgeries. They told her she’d be in a neck brace for the rest of her life. But today, Kata is living pain free. Her spine is long and relaxed, and she has full range of motion in her neck. And she did it without surgery. Instead of going under the knife, Kata turned to yoga. What is yoga? Yoga is a mind-body practice that combines stretching exercises, controlled breathing and ...

My Breakthrough in Anti-Aging Stem Cell Therapy
When you’re young, your body has the ability to bounce back quickly from illness and trauma. That’s because you have plenty of stem cells. What are stem cells? Stem cells are the supply of healthy “replacement cells” that you’re born with. Your body assigns them to replace cells that are damaged, old or dying. But you lose stem cells as you age, making your body’s recovery process longer and harder. And as traumas and illnesses accumulate, your body loses its ability to fully heal. That’s when chronic problems start. The amount of adult stem cells available to your body was once ...

The World’s First Anti-Aging Fitness Plan
I discovered a way to program your genes so they stay younger longer, and it takes just minutes a day. My research and experience with my own patients shows there’s a specific way of moving and exerting yourself that not only burns fat, but makes you younger from head to toe. I’m not talking about running a marathon or other long, backbreaking workouts. Most doctors will tell you that type of exercise is good for you. But nothing could be further from the truth. Long periods of steady aerobic training without pushing hard enough to catch your breath actually creates a smaller, less powerful heart and lungs. Thi...
