    Your Most Powerful Muscle

    Growing old doesn’t have to mean loss of independence. But there are a few things you need to watch out for. High on my list are your muscles. Muscle power means youth, vitality and independence. Unless you do something about it, muscle loss (sarcopenia) is like a progressive disease. Your body simply “wastes away” over [...]

    You Don’t Know Jackfruit!

    The other night I turned on my TV and brought up the on-screen guide, and I saw a listing for a show from the island of Bali.  I couldn’t resist tuning in… It was the travel show with the guy who eats the strange and outrageous foods, Andrew Zimmern. He was at a ceremonial pig roast. [...]

    Drugs and Anti-Aging

    Sometimes patients come to me with what they call “symptoms of old age.” But often they’re not symptoms at all. They’re side effects. Here’s what I mean: Prescription drugs cause side effects that look a lot like “aging.” Research shows some drugs cause major cellular damage. They attack the mitochondria, the tiny energy generators in [...]

They want you to believe it’s the same as any other sugar. Their newest tactic they’re using is so-called “scientific” research. It claims corn syrup [...]

    Testosterone and Anti-Aging

    When I entered my practice, one of the first things I wanted to do, a few years before the A4M (American Academy of Anti-Aging) came along, was to help reverse what was happening to my male patients. Now I’m taking it a step further. It will be part of the purpose of my new Palm [...]

    Estro Cancer

    Did you ever wonder why women can shop all day, and for men it drives them nuts? Did you know there are hormonal reasons for that? It’s not just culture, it’s evolution. Women have traditionally been responsible for doing the gathering. They get a surge of the feel-good hormone serotonin, and it gives them energy. [...]

    Super Fish

    I admire the strength and supernatural endurance of Pacific salmon. Their trip to the spawning ground may cover more than 2,000 miles. They travel day and night upstream against powerful swift currents. They even swim UP waterfalls. They have to outrun predators like seals, orca whales, bears and human fishermen. And amazingly, during this entire [...]

    Why Do Nutritional Supplements Make Doctors So Angry?

    We have plenty of scientific evidence that proves the value of nutrients and health supplements … but look at what happens when you take that evidence to a standard doctor. A patient of mine didn’t want to make a long drive to my office for a little cold. So he went to see his primary [...]

    Bioenergetic Aging: A Decline in Your Body’s Ability to Generate Energy

    Feeling weak and a lack of energy production from degrading of your mitochondria is called “bioenergetic aging.” I know that doesn’t sound good, and it’s not. Bioenergetic Aging brings about a constant decline in your body’s ability to generate the energy you need to even do simple things. When we look at photos of the [...]
