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.

I have a medical history taking habit I can use with some new patients…

Let’s say they’re about 20-years-old… they’re having trouble with certain foods and dealing with off and on intestinal pain, frequently with diarrhea, occasionally with a bit of blood in the toilet bowl.

In no time at all, I can start making a few assumptions about their early childhood… Continue reading

Travel Precautions to Keep Safe from Coronavirus

March 25, 2020

The situation is changing rapidly as the world reacts to the coronavirus pandemic.

I don’t use the word ‘pandemic’ to frighten you. Instead, it’s simply a term that means the disease has spread through multiple countries. So by definition, it’s a worldwide pandemic. It’s gone from Asia, to Europe, to North America.

You’ve likely noticed that widespread traveling is becoming less and less likely. Still, there may be situations where you are forced to travel in close quarters with others in the coming weeks. Continue reading

Things are going to be a bit strange for the next few weeks. The coronavirus pandemic has been a non-stop presence in the news and in people’s minds.

In fact, I was thinking about it myself on the way to Publix the other night. I was headed there to pick up some water and frozen foods. So I could be prepared for the days ahead.

Yes… preparation is the key here. We should all prepare ourselves so we are more likely to stay healthy as this illness spreads through our population. Continue reading

Will Your Lifestyle Lead to a Stroke?

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

March 20, 2020

I once knew a guy, a healthcare executive, who had a terrible stroke. He was only 38 years old and was left with half his body paralyzed.

It was a sad situation to say the least.

But it wasn’t all just chance. The guy smoked, he ate lots of meat and non-foods like twinkies (this was back in 1983) he didn’t sleep well, and I don’t believe I ever saw him move much from behind his desk.

And he’s just one of the many poor folks who have their lives permanently changed or ended by this condition. Continue reading

What is going on with coffee these days? Have you noticed this too?

I went into a local Starbucks the other day and I was mystified by the menu…

All around me, people were placing orders for things like café mocha, caramel macchiato and cinnamon dolce latte. Other words like “whip”, “pump”, “syrup” and “non-fat” were being tossed around at high speed as the baristas whirled behind the counter.

Tall paper cups with names marked in black were lined up on the counter for customers to grab on their way out the door.

I just shook my head in wonder…

The Healthiest Beverage on Earth

March 13, 2020

One of my favorite times of the day is late in the evening.

That’s when I sit outdoors on the patio weather permitting and enjoy a cup or two of green tea.

It’s a soothing time. I sit back and listen to the sounds of nature around me… wild parrots, families of ducks, and the fish splashing in the water behind my house.

It’s not just the relaxing sounds that make me feel good… it’s also the tea itself. Continue reading
