Eternal Youth is Hiding in Your Telomeres

By David Blyweiss, M.D., Advanced Natural Wellness

  • 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

Most people expect to live well into their 70’s. They hope they’ll make it into their 80’s or 90’s. But I find that most of my patients and other folks I talk to want to reach – and even surpass – their 100th birthday.

While this may sound like a pipe dream to you, it’s a reality for more than 315,000 centenarians worldwide.

Now, I’m sure that some of these centenarians have their share of health problems. But oddly enough, most “super-seniors” don’t die of things like heart disease or cancer like younger elderly patients.

Two Ways to Cure Diabetes

By David Blyweiss, M.D., Advanced Natural Wellness

December 14, 2018

Once someone is diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, they often believe it’s a life-long condition that has to be “managed”.  But there is nothing farther from the truth.

Diabetes is completely reversible. I’ve seen over and over again in my own patients. And there is plenty of evidence to back me up on this.

In particular, there is a chain of diabetes studies I’ve been following for several years now. It’s a trio of scientific articles that absolutely prove diabetic patients can put their diabetes into remission and toss their anti-diabetic medications in a matter of weeks– with long-lasting results.Isn’t this what every diabetic dreams of?

One thing we know for sure is this. Diabetes medications don’t cure or reverse diabetes. All they do is lower high blood sugar, which is only a sign of the disease.  And in my experience, these meds can actually make diabetes worse. Continue reading

Still Feeling Sick? Try Flushing Out the Metals

By David Blyweiss, M.D., Advanced Natural Wellness

December 12, 2018

A few months ago my 35 year old neighbor collapsed in his driveway taking the trash out.

He was immediately rushed to the hospital where the medical staff performed a full work-up on him. One diagnostic test after another was carried out. Finally they gave him the good news…

There was nothing wrong with him. He could go home.

My neighbor didn’t believe this for a minute. After all, he still felt horrible. And guess what happened when he tried to leave the hospital? Continue reading

The One Food You cannot Eat under any Circumstance

By David Blyweiss, M.D., Advanced Natural Wellness

December 7, 2018

As a physician who takes on medical cases that mainstream docs seem to ignore, I’ve seen more than my share of adult-onset food allergies over the years.

And I have to say. The diagnosis is usually a big shocker for the patient… especially when they’ve never had an allergy or food sensitivity before in their life.

“How could this happen to me? Why did something I used to eat all the time turn against me?”

In many cases, new onset food allergies can be chalked up to what I call non-food products. These are additives that are foreign to our bodies. Continue reading

Alert: There’s something Weird Going On In America

By David Blyweiss, M.D., Advanced Natural Wellness

December 3, 2018

There is something weird going on in America…

When people move here from countries like Asia, they start gaining weight. They develop metabolic syndrome, diabetes and cardiovascular disease.

In other words, these people begin to experience the same devastating health problems that plague those here in the U.S. day in and day out.

Why is America so deadly? Continue reading

The Hidden Reason You Aren’t Losing Weight

By David Blyweiss, M.D., Advanced Natural Wellness

November 28, 2018

In last Monday’s issue of Advanced Natural Wellness, I talked about the risk of excess body weight – particularly central obesity – when it comes to mortality rates.

This isn’t a new topic.

But it did generate a lot of questions from readers who are dealing with extremely stubborn belly fat. They’re sick of it. They want to get rid of it. But in some cases, they don’t feel that exercise and diet are working for them.

So today I want to dig a little deeper into something that may be sabotaging your weight loss efforts… and share some of the strategies I use in my own practice to help patients demolish deadly central obesity. And with great success! Continue reading

The Problem with BMI

By David Blyweiss, M.D., Advanced Natural Wellness

November 26, 2018

The other day a new study hit my desk. And it confirms the results of every other study done on the topic of body mass…

…A high BMI increases your chances of an early death!

This isn’t breaking news.

You know as well as I do that being overweight is detrimental to your health. And sadly, nearly 75% of Americans are overweight or obese. I see it every day here in my own practice.

On the other hand, I don’t necessarily agree that BMI is always the best indicator of obesity. Or early death. Continue reading

My Grandma’s Secret Recipe against Colds

By David Blyweiss, M.D., Advanced Natural Wellness

November 23, 2018

Now that we’re in late fall, the common cold is running rampant. And every day – several times a day, in fact – I am hearing the same question over and over again.

“Doctor B, what can I take to get rid of this horrible cold?”

They want to know which over-the-counter cold and cough medicine I recommend. Some of them want me to call in a prescription for antibiotics, thinking that it might help them recover more quickly.

The first thing I do is remind the patients asking for antibiotics that these drugs are only for bacterial infections. They do nothing to stop or cure viral infections like a cold or flu.

And as far as OTC cold remedies are concerned, they don’t speed up the healing process either. They just mask the symptoms. Plus, some of the ingredients found in them are pretty bad for you. Continue reading

Old Age Doesn’t Cause Alzheimer’s. This Does

By David Blyweiss, M.D., Advanced Natural Wellness

November 21, 2018

The National Institute of Aging says: “Increasing age is the most important known risk factor for Alzheimer’s.”

Well, that’s just a bunch of baloney.

Alzheimer’s disease is NOT a natural result of aging. Even worse, most of today’s beliefs about the disease are flat-out wrong. Continue reading

The Graphic Truth About Red Meat

By David Blyweiss, M.D., Advanced Natural Wellness

November 16, 2018

Patients often ask me if eating grass-fed beef is worth the effort. After all, the conventional meat they buy at the grocery store tastes just fine. And the mouth-watering prime rib or filet mignon at their favorite restaurant isn’t grass-fed either.

“So what’s the big deal, Doc?” they ask. “Give me one good reason to switch.”

When this happens I shake my head and sigh. I know I’m going to have to do something I don’t like doing…

…I’m going to have to get graphic to get my point across. Continue reading

Aspirin: Cure that’s Worse than the Disease

By David Blyweiss, M.D., Advanced Natural Wellness

November 12, 2018

I’ve never agreed with the idea of prescribing low-dose aspirin in an attempt to ward off heart disease.

The idea behind the concept is simple. Aspirin works as a blood-thinner. This means it helps reduce the risk of blood clots that could block an artery and cause a heart attack.

I’ll admit. It sounds great in theory. And all of those TV commercial ads make aspirin sound like a wonder drug.

It’s no wonder my patients often ask me if they should be taking low-dose aspirin every day! Continue reading
