Eternal Youth is Hiding in Your Telomeres

  • 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.

6 Foods That Should Never Be in Your Pantry

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

October 16, 2019

For most people, house cleaning means you’ll sort out your closets, dust under the furniture, and clear out the attic.

But how often do you clear out another important room… your kitchen?

More specifically, how often do you peer into your pantry shelves to rid yourself of items you won’t (or shouldn’t) eat?

I know. No one wants to waste perfectly good food. But, there’s no reason why you can’t donate to a local food bank.

And, if food isn’t healthy… well, it’s time to get rid of it. Continue reading

Spices… I LOVE spices.

In ancient times, spices were worth more than their weight in gold. And for good reason!

Not only do they make your food taste better, but spices can have amazing healing powers too.

This is especially true when it comes to the big “C”… cancer. Continue reading

Your #1 Measure of Heart Health

LDL, HDL, cholesterol and saturated fats effects on heart, health risk, heart health

We used to think saturated fats were heart-stopping killers.

But for years now, we’ve known this isn’t true.

In fact, saturated fats don’t increase your risk of heart disease, stroke, cardiovascular disease, diabetes or death.

Yes, read that sentence again… Continue reading

The Bedtime Trap That’s Keeping You Awake

affects of not sleeping, lack of sleep, insomnia, how body is affected by little to no sleep

I have a routine I use each night to easily go to sleep…

First, I lower the lights, and turn on some soothing music – usually Judy Collins. Then, I take a warm shower to wash off the day’s grime and dead skin cells. As my body temperature cools down, a mild state of pseudo hibernation kicks in. Next, I climb under my covers to enjoy my latest library book. My Hepa filters’ white noise is in the background.

When I experience that first eyelid droop, I turn off the lights and music and sleep soundly through the night. In the morning, I’m bright-eyed and bushy-tailed – ready to start my day.

Works like a charm! Continue reading

Losing your memory and ability to think is one of the scariest things of all.

So, if you’re in your 50s, 60s, or 70s, you may start to worry every time a memory blip affects your day.

Where did you leave your keys? What was the name of your new neighbor again? How did you forget to go to that dinner you confirmed ?

Oftentimes, these little blips are nothing to worry about. But some of you are concerned Alzheimer’s disease is in your future. Continue reading

Skip the Little Blue Pill and Try This

Erectile function and Nitric Oxide

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

September 23, 2019

I have men come into my office all the time looking for a little help in the bedroom. When it comes to intimate time with their partners, many of my patients have the desire…but are lacking the ability.

Most of these men are hoping I’ll prescribe a little blue or amber pill to keep them rigid for hours on end.

Sure, these pills provide a quick fix — improving blood flow to erectile tissue — but it’s only temporary.

These enhancing pills don’t correct the root of your problem. It’s like mopping the floor while the tub is still overflowing.

What your feet say about your health

why do my hands and feet tingle, is it okay if my legs fall asleep a lot, what is peripheral neuropathy, top causes for peripheral neuropathy, is it a pinched nerve or something else?

As a kid, I remember thinking that my sleeping foot was the funniest thing.  I sat there looking at my leg while it slowly woke up — a hundred tiny needles poking me the whole time.

I could feel my foot coming alive again…

Now, this happens to everyone.  So I’m sure you’ve sat too long in one position and had a leg fall asleep…or an arm when you lean against it too long. It’s uncomfortable for a few minutes, but then the tingling feeling goes away.

But, what if that numbness in your foot or arm doesn’t go away?  What does it mean if those strange feelings are always there? Continue reading

Start Saving Your Vision Now

Your eyesight is one of your most important gifts. So when I see patients ignoring eye health, I like to set them right.

Think about it. Your eyesight is your key to independence. Once it starts to go, all sorts of things happen.

The most terrifying, of course, is losing your driver’s license. Suddenly you can’t go to the grocery store… you can’t get to the doctor if you have an emergency… you can’t even meet your friends for dinner. Continue reading

#1 Way to Banish Dry Eyes

Modern technology overworks your eyes

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

September 13, 2019

I don’t know about you, but I suffer from dry eyes regularly.

Between my smart phone and four or five hours on the computer each day…my eyes sure take a beating. And by the end of each day they often feel dry and gritty.

If you spend more than an hour or two a day using your electronic devices – or even doing other forms of close work – you know exactly what I’m talking about. Continue reading

Eat your way to a healthy prostate

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

Back in the late 1978, I had a mentor named Dr. Linus Pauling – the only man to win two Nobel prizes. At the time, Dr. Pauling was in his late 70s and living with prostate cancer.

But he didn’t let it slow him down one bit. His lectures were simple but brilliant and vibrant.  He lived to the ripe age of 93 before passing away. Dr. Pauling was also famous for only eating organic veggies and keeping his cancer at bay with daily doses of vitamin C.

Then, I had a patient – a Hollywood plastic surgeon in fact – who was under my care for 10 years while living with prostate cancer. At 78 years of age, he decided to skip radiation or chemotherapy in favor of diet and lifestyle changes. This man, too, lived a good long time. Continue reading
