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 …

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.

They want a better quality of life, not more years. That’s why I …

A new study confirms that doing “aerobics” and “cardio” shrink your telomeres.

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?

Don’t Sweat The Small Stuff

New Year’s is always a really fun time for me. I have family and friends around, and for the last few years I’ve been able to celebrate with them in Africa. Last night I went to a national gala in Uganda. The king, the ministers, and all of the Ugandan entertainment stars were there. I’ll tell you more about it …
