  • Living healthy to 100 isn’t a pipe dream
  • Enjoy health and independence in your “old” age
  • The fat that turns back the hands of time

Diabetes is running rampant in our nation! An astounding 120+ million American adults have either pre-diabetes or type 2 diabetes.

This year, chats with my patients have taken a darker turn.

Seriously! Most of the stuff we call food these days is nothing more than manmade flavorings, fillers and colors. You can barely even call them food.

The only real foods you’ll find have the label “organic” plastered all over them. Continue reading

In the mornings, I wash my face and then use a botanical serum with antioxidant polyphenols to make my skin shiny and beautiful. It even plumps things up a bit! Continue reading

Do you like what you see when you look in the mirror? A lot of my patients don’t.

I’m constantly being asked how to get rid of certain physical signs of aging. And if you’re over the age of 40, you know what I’m talking about. Continue reading
