    Immune Boosting Amazon Miracle

      My friend and I hacked a narrow path through the underbrush. It was the second day of our journey, deep into the jungles of the Amazon. I was on my way to speak to a curandero, a native healer, about a plant the locals believe has magical healing properties. They use this herb in [...]

    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 [...]

    HFCS: High Fructose Cancer Syrup

    Since I’ve been writing to you about the dangers of high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) and how unnatural it is for you, you’ve probably seen the ads by corn growers. 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

    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.

    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 [...]

    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.

    “Stop wasting money on vitamin and mineral supplements.” (Is he joking?)

    It’s hard to believe in 2014. But it’s still going on. Every so often I’ll read or hear a doctor or professional organization say there’s no evidence that a vitamin supplement does anything for anybody. Eliseo Guallar and his colleagues at The American College of Physicians wrote an entire paper entitled, “Enough is enough: Stop [...]

    Oxygen is life. It’s so critical nature programmed your body to take it in automatically with every breath. You don’t have to think about it. But I think about oxygen a lot.

    Laughter is One of the Best Natural Anti-Aging Secrets

    Would You Put Gasoline On Your Face?

    When you think of toxic chemicals, you probably don’t think of your cosmetic products. But your lotions, shampoos and sunscreens likely have chemicals that strip away moisture, irritate and cause skin wrinkles like propylene glycol, parabens, PABA, PEG and mineral oil.
