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.

  • Get rid of those “senior moments” for good
  • Here’s what this exotic spice can do for your brain
  • How to get the most power from your supplement

Don’t you just hate it when you experience a “senior moment”? It’s so embarrassing when you walk up to a coworker and suddenly can’t remember their name… or lose your glasses only to find out they’re sitting on top of your head.

Well, if you need a memory boost, I may have just the thing for you. Continue reading

  • Feeling weak and out of balance?
  • How fast (or slow) you walk may predict longevity
  • Unusual exercise boosts muscle and bone strength

Growing old gracefully is something everyone strives for. But sometimes life catches up with you faster than you realize.

The next thing you know, you’re feeling weaker than you would like. Your muscles and bones aren’t as strong as they used to be. And your risk of falls and fractures increases exponentially.

You might think this only happens to “old” people.

Well, believe me!

I’ve met plenty of patients in their 50’s and 60’s that are already experiencing muscle loss, balance issues and osteoporosis. As a matter of fact, about 40% of folks in this age group already have low bone mass in their hips or spine.

Once these types of problems rear their ugly head, it can literally steal away your livelihood. Continue reading

Your Health Depends on this “Forgotten” Organ

  • Is your gut making you sick?
  • Feed this “forgotten organ” for health and longevity
  • Give it some exercise, too!

You can’t see your heart. Still, you try to take good care of it.

You can’t see your brain, either. However, that doesn’t stop you from trying to ward off dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.

But what do you do for your gut?

This is a question I often ask my patients. And most of them just shake their heads. They have no idea what the answer is. After all, unless you experience heartburn, an upset stomach, diarrhea or constipation, you probably don’t pay much attention to it.

Big mistake!

These days the gut microbiome is often referred to as the “forgotten organ”. And for good reason. Continue reading

#1 Natural Health Trend You MUST Avoid!

best way to stay hydrated, water filtration system, water purifier, filtered water vs. unfiltered water, untreated water, is raw water good or bad?, best source of safe water, water distiller, alternatives to tap water, is raw water safe or not?

  • Is “raw” water worth the price?
  • Contaminated water kills, no matter what the source
  • A safe and inexpensive way to get all the health-giving water you need

Raw carrots, apples, tomatoes and other uncooked plant-based foods are wonderful for your body. They’re loaded with fiber, antioxidants and digestive enzymes that support your health and digestive system.

But should you drink “raw” water?

This concept may sound like a joke. After all, unless you boil water for your coffee or tea, water doesn’t get cooked, does it? So how can it be “raw”?

If you’re not familiar with the term, this type of water is the latest natural health trend in some groups. People are paying upwards of $15 a gallon for it. This might seem silly when you consider that it’s nothing more than natural spring water. Continue reading

Ancient Herb Boosts Mood and Memory

  • Does a poor mood and bad memory have you off your game?
  • Discover the ancient medicinal herb that boosts memory and brain function
  • Shake off the stress and anxiety of every day life

Among all of the health concerns I hear among my patients, there are several non-specific complaints that appear to crop up more frequently than others. They may sound familiar to you…

  • “My memory isn’t what it used to be.”
  • “I’m not as happy and energetic as I was just a few years ago.”
  • “I feel old, tired and cranky.”

You might think that these changes in mental status are just something you have to live with. But there is nothing further from the truth. Continue reading

  • Eating too much at all of the wrong times
  • Here’s what happens if you never get hungry
  • Meal timing strategy triggers your body’s ancient cleansing system

For our entire lives we’ve been told to eat three square meals a day.

Some people eat even more than that – snacking all day and well into the evening so that they never get hungry. And for some unknown reason, the majority of folks here in the U.S. eat for an average of 15 hours or longer each day.

Not only are we eating too much and too often, we’re also eating the bulk of our foods at the wrong time of the day. (If you’re like most Americans, you probably eat several small meals and snacks during the day, followed by a big evening meal.)

This may be a driving factor in the obesity epidemic… and presents more health risks than you might imagine. Continue reading

  • Overfed and undernourished
  • Why you may be unable to absorb vitamin B12
  • 2 mineral deficiencies that destroy your health

One of the most startling concepts of modern-day life is the idea of nutritional deficiencies right here in the U.S. It’s just hard to imagine that with all of the foods available to us, that anyone could be running low on certain vitamins and minerals.

Unfortunately, this is something that is much more common than most people realize. And the truth of the matter is you’re probably deficient in at least one – if not several – life-supporting nutrients. Continue reading

  • There’s nothing wrong with including meat in your diet
  • How much meat should you eat?
  • 6 ways to slash meat intake without sacrifice

There is no doubt that fruits and vegetables are good for you. I just wrote about all of the great health benefits they offer in the January 26th issue of Advanced Natural Wellness.

But that has left a few meat-lovers grumbling at me. “Doc! What do you have against meat!” they exclaim. Most people who don’t eat animal protein do so because of personal issues surrounding the ethics of it as well personal health issues, for example their cardiovascular health a la the Ornish diet.

The truth is (and despite popular belief) I don’t actually have a problem with meat. I’m just as likely to enjoy a sensible sized portion of juicy steak as the next guy. However, I do have an issue with meat that comes from

Ignore these Food Groups at Your Own Peril

  • Two food groups Americans ignore at their own risk
  • Fruits and veggies save lives
  • How to get the most out of your produce

Everybody knows that eating fruits and vegetables is good for them.

So you might find it astonishing to learn that only 12% of U.S. adults eat the recommended one and a half to two cups of fruit each day. Even fewer – only 9% – are meeting the vegetable guidelines of two to three cups a day.

If anything, we should be eating more than the government’s recommendations, not less.

This is a very sad state of affairs; especially considering that higher intake of plant-based foods can stave off many of today’s killer diseases by helping to lower the expression of pro-inflammatory genes. Continue reading

  • Why it’s time to ditch artificial sweeteners
  • Sweet but deadly
  • Beware of this bogus natural sweetener

What if you’ve been misled?

What if artificial sweeteners actually contribute to a larger waistline, increase weight gain and lead to a higher incidence of obesity?

What if regular use of no-calorie sweeteners can quickly alter your glucose response and increase your risk of metabolic syndrome and type 2 diabetes?

The truth of the matter is this. These fake sugars don’t help you lose weight. And they don’t stop diabetes.
