Love Your Liver And Turn Back The Years
Today, I want to talk to you about how important it is to be nice to your liver – especially if you want to keep your body younger than your years. And I’m not talking about cutting out that nice bottle of Bordeaux you might share with a special dinner companion on a Saturday night or depriving yourself of that fine, 18-year-old single malt you love to savor every now then. Of course, I recommend that you always drink responsibly. But if you really want to look after your liver, my advice is to drop excess fat. In fact, at my wellness clinic, taking good care of your liver by staying lean is one of my key anti-...

Nutrients For Your Manhood
I treat adults of all ages at my wellness clinic and, at some point during our consultations, we usually talk about the ‘S’ word. The advice in today’s letter is for men – but if you’re a woman, just imagine you’re listening in so you can share it with the man in your life. First of all, from a wellness point of view, I tell my patients: “You should have sex as often as you can, for as long as you live.” Three to four times a week would be ideal. Age should not be an issue. It’s the most natural thing in the world to have sex well into your 70s and 80s.1 In fact, sex h...

The Great Herb Heist
For a long time, I’ve been warning you that the big box stores are being less than honest with you when it comes to supplements. In fact, it appears they want to rip you off. Investigators in New York State have discovered that the merchandising giants, riding high on the health-and-wellness wave, have been overcharging customers for cut-rate herbs, vitamins, minerals and other supplements. You may have read about it or heard it on the news. But it’s even worse than I previously thought. I started out warning you to stay away from synthetic multi-vitamins that require 400 times the recommended dose to do you an...

Your Upset Tummy Could Be Early Signs Of Parkinson’s
You’ve probably had a gut feeling once or twice in your life. That’s because your gut and your brain have a special connection. And that’s why the first sign of many brain disorders could be an upset stomach. I often explain to patients at my wellness clinic that nerve and biochemical pathways run between your gut and brain. And these might be linked to a number of degenerative illnesses, such as Parkinson’s disease and multiple sclerosis, as well as mental health problems. In fact, the gut and brain share the same nerve chemistry and, with the help of microbes in your digestive tract, these two reg...

Cholesterol: I Told You So!
Big Brother has finally come around to what I’ve been telling my patients for almost 30 years – stop worrying about cholesterol in your diet! The influential Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee, the nation’s top nutrition panel, has now admitted they were WRONG about cholesterol. And they have now proclaimed this former dietary evil as no longer a “nutrient of concern.”1 They were slow – and, of course, wrong for decades – but at least they got there in the end. That means eggs are back on the menu for millions of Americans – yolk and all – although my patients have b...

Join The “Biologically Younger” Trend
Boomers were born between 1946 and 1964. The youngest ones are turning 50, and many are now almost 70 years old. Even the celebrities we used to think of as “forever young” are almost 70. But these folks aren’t aging the same way their parents did. Today’s 70-year-old is more active and would never settle for the old folks’ home … and why should they? With advances in anti-aging medicine, like the telomere technology I use with my patients, new and exciting changes are here. For me, telomere biology is not about extending life. That’s a noble goal, but it’s not what I’...

The Surprising Truth About Calories
It seems that mainstream medicine has just discovered you can get fat without eating more. And you don’t have to eat less to lose weight.1 I was as surprised by this revelation as they were – although not quite in the same way. The Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), a very prestigious medical publication, has admitted that weight gain is really about the kind of calories you eat, and how the body’s insulin responds. I’m sure this news came as a huge shock to the medical establishment. But if you’re a regular reader of mine, or a patient at my wellness clinic, the truth about c...

As an anti-aging specialist, I’ve spent a lot of time studying and treating osteoporosis among the many “older” patients who come to my wellness clinic.

This means I also spent a lot of time debunking the osteoporosis propaganda put out by the medical establishment.

Time To Clean Up Your Act
I’ve never been a fan of heavy metal – neither the music nor the toxic type in the atmosphere that accumulates in your tissues and destroys your cells and causes disease. So when a patient at my wellness clinic recently asked me if a liver-cleanse or a full detox treatment was better for removing heavy metals, I told him neither. In fact, I suggested that his time – and money – would be better spent writing poetry, pondering the joys of biking, or setting aside 15 minutes every day for a real exercise program. They are all probably just as effective as those expensive, fad cleanses out there today. ...

Natural Stress-Buster that Lets You Live Longer
As you know, one of the main areas of focus at my wellness clinic is non-invasive, natural therapies for anti-aging. That’s why when patients come to me with what they call the “symptoms of old age,” I feel compelled to set them on the right course. And I can tell you that the literally thousands of patients I’ve seen with these “symptoms” over the years have left my clinic – some even as skeptics – and returned renewed and rejuvenated. But, I confess, the cure was easy. Because usually their problems were not “symptoms” at all. They were the side-effects of our p...

Why You Should Avoid Statins
At my anti-aging clinic, I continue to wage war against what I call the “medical-industrial complex.” And I do it for one reason only – I care more about my patients than I do about profits. Big Pharma clearly takes the opposite view. And now it seems these pharmaceutical behemoths won’t be happy until every man, woman and child is popping anti-cholesterol pills.

Moving Day is Every Day
I know it’s kind of a necessity to sit at a computer these days. But sitting for long periods of time, whether it’s in front of a screen or otherwise, can be deadly. I’ve seen what a sedentary lifestyle does to people because I treat them every day. But what the Annals of Internal Medicine found shocked even me. The journal did an analysis where they looked at the results of over 40 other studies. Each study looked at risk of disease and early death for people who sit for long periods of time compared with those who don’t, and the effects of exercise on both. They found that if you sit for very long...

Only 2% Of My Cancer Patients Have Had This Checked
I saw a patient recently who has stage four breast cancer. She’d been to some of the best hospitals and specialists for care. Before she came to me she’d had a mastectomy and chemotherapy. Then the cancer spread to her backbone and she had radiation treatment. Yet still, after all that time and until she came to my clinic, no one had mentioned a possible estrogen problem. No one ever bothered to measure her estrogen. They never looked at whether her breast cancer was estrogen positive or progesterone positive. The rates of most cancers have stabilized.

The Greatest Health Scam In History Used President Eisenhower As A Pawn
On June 24, 1956, the American Heart Association broadcasted a show on the three major television networks. It presented a new theory on heart disease: that is was caused by cholesterol. The major proponent of this theory was not a doctor or even a scientist. He was a little-known economist named Ancel Keys. Keys called his theory the “lipid hypothesis.” The idea was that meat and eggs and butter were bad for you and should be replaced by corn oil, margarine, chicken and cold cereal. Two weeks after the TV broadcast, the American Heart Association adopted the cholesterol theory of heart disease and later that y...

A warm sunny day … what could feel better? Yet the warm sun on our skin that we all crave gets a lot of bad press from the medical establishment.

Did you know, for example, that people living in places that get more of the sun’s UV radiation have the lowest incidence of cancer?1 That doesn’t mean sunlight lowers the “risk” of getting cancer. Getting more sunlight keeps people from actually getting cancer. Studies show sunlight prevents skin cancer, prostate2 ca...

I Just Turned 58, But…
The knowledge that there’s a control mechanism for how we age takes the chains off of us. Telomere biology sets us free because we’re not just destined to do “what our genes say.” Instead, we have a movie script. Some scenes are sketched in, but you get to direct the movie and decide how you want it to come out. For me, I turned 58 a few months ago, but I’ll tell you… I sure feel a lot younger. Who would have thought it could be that simple? That it would be possible to keep a youthful, disease-free body by maintaining – or lengthening – telomeres, the tiny bits of genetic m...

“Sleep” hormone reawakens your youth gene
You could be 80 years old and feel like a teenager. Or you could be in your 30s and feel like you have one foot in the grave. The secret to feeling young is how well your body “talks” to your telomeres. In doing research for my upcoming book on how to benefit from telomere biology, I’ve discovered an interesting fact. Telomeres have receptors that communicate with your hormones. They talk to each other. That’s important because your hormones and your telomeres affect aging more than anything else. If they have “good” conversations you feel (and stay) young. If they have “bad”...

How do NASA astronauts reverse extreme aging in space?
Did you know that your cardiovascular system ages ten times faster in space than it does on earth? We age faster in space because there’s more oxidative stress, more insulin resistance, and more inflammation. You even find significant damage to mitochondria, the energy producing centers of your cells. Astronauts also experience another form of extreme aging. The tiny biological clocks that determine how long and how well we age shorten much faster in space. These tiny timekeepers are called telomeres. The shorter they are. The more prone to disease and the effects of aging your body is. But if you can keep your telom...

A Cross Between Ginger and a Carrot
I woke up with the sunlight … and birds singing so loudly I thought they were in the room with me. I walked out of my cottage to a warm breeze, and sat down to a delicious breakfast: fresh fruit, banana pancakes and a tall glass of jackfruit juice. I made my way to my friends Westi and Lelir’s house, where he greeted me with a long “pick and hoe” garden cultivating tool. Westi said, “Ready?” smiling, holding out the long handle towards me. We walked up the steep hill behind his home to his private herb garden. I wondered what we might harvest today. He stopped in front of a row of very ...

Lost secret to better vision
Ancient cultures knew the value of the whole, fresh foods they ate, and what to do with them. Like eating fish for better eyesight. Unfortunately, this way of looking at things with an eye on nature has been discarded and forgotten. Today, we have all of these individualized categories of study being looked at by very smart people. But we’re not as smart as we think.
