  • 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.

The Safest Water on Earth

  • Why nobody drinks tap water anymore
  • The truth about bottled water
  • Discover the healthiest water on earth

Do you remember when water used to be free?

It came straight out of the tap in every home in America. And if somebody ever said they could bottle it up and sell it for a buck or two or $10 a bottle, they would have been laughed out of the room.

Well, you already know that the water running out of your faucets is not quite free if you get a water bill every month. But if you’re like most folks, you don’t drink that kind anymore, anyway. After all, it’s been fluoridated, chlorinated and treated with all sorts of chemicals. Some places have occasional toxic sludge accidents. Who knows what’s really in it?

  • Is the scorching summer heat stopping you from exercising?
  • Check out my 15-minute indoor workout
  • 5 heart-pumping, muscle-building exercises for summer

Down here in South Florida, it’s been a brutally hot summer so far. Other states across the U.S. are also averaging higher than normal temperatures this year.

Well, when you walk out the door and immediately break out in a sweat, it’s easy to get out of your regular exercise routine. In fact, I’m finding more and more of my patients who normally walk, sprint and ride their bikes outdoors are falling out of the habit.

Eat Your Way to a Younger You

  • Are you eating foods that age you?
  • How “inflamm-aging” is killing Americans
  • Eat your way to a younger and healthier life

If I had to name only one single reason that some people age faster than others, diet would probably be at the top of my list.

Simply put, eating the wrong foods opens you up to chronic inflammation.

Some folks call this “inflamm-aging”. That’s because it’s linked to almost all of today’s top age-related diseases – heart disease, arthritis diabetes, Alzheimer’s, cancer and more. And here in the U.S., it’s run amok.

I place the blame squarely on the American diet. Continue reading

  • What is CoQ10 and why do you need it?
  • Why everyone over 40 should be taking this enzyme
  • The secret to choosing the best CoQ10 for you

Everyone “gets” the idea of taking a multi-vitamin to help offset nutritional deficits. They quickly grasp the importance of supplementing with omega-3 fatty acids to boost their intake of these heart- and brain-healthy fish oils.

But what about CoQ10?

CoQ10 is one of those supplements everyone over the age of 40 should take, every single day. It’s also one that’s least understood by most folks.

It’s not a vitamin. It’s not a mineral. So what is it and why do you need it? Continue reading

Reverse Damage to Your Aging Brain

  • Reverse damage to your aging brain
  • More mitochondria means more brainpower
  • Three nutrients that fuel your brain

In last issue, I introduced you to Dr. Bredesen’s MEND protocol.

This amazing treatment regimen is the first to show memory loss, cognitive decline and Alzheimer’s disease are all reversible. This is true even in patients who carry the APOE4 gene – a variant that puts them at greater risk of Alzheimer’s.

It’s a personalized program that deals with much more than the brain. That’s because everything going on in your body affects your brain chemistry. This includes the foods you eat, the way your genes are expressed and even the condition of your mitochondria. Continue reading

  • Reverse Alzheimer’s and boost brain volume
  • No drugs, psychiatric care or side effects
  • Dementia-busting tips you can put to use immediately

Today, there is no medical cure for Alzheimer’s disease. So the true story I’m about to tell you brings a great deal of promise to anyone hoping to revitalize their brainpower.

You see, a 66-year old man with well documented early Alzheimer’s disease and mild cognitive impairment signed up for a very unique program.

When he started, the volume of his hippocampus (which is critical in consolidating daily information from short term memory to long term) was smaller than 83% of men his age. He also had reduced glucose utilization, which is indicative of Alzheimer’s. Additionally, he carried the APOE4 gene variant, which placed him at greater risk for the disease. Continue reading

5 Superfoods that Reverse Aging

  • What is a superfood?
  • Two super-fruits for super health
  • Three more foods that fight aging and disease

Some of my patients want to know if there are specific foods that pack more power than others when it comes to fighting off disease and aging.

These are foods that we call “superfoods”. They contain an abundance of vitamins, minerals and nutrients that prevent almost every disease known to man.

Now, you might think these foods are expensive and hard to come by. That’s not true. And they don’t have to be exotic discoveries from the Amazon rainforests or African jungles. In fact, you probably have plenty of superfoods right in your own kitchen. Continue reading

  • Is knee surgery a good option for you?
  • Best way to restore knee function, mobility and flexibility
  • … And shut down arthritic joint pain

If you have arthritic knees, you may think that undergoing knee surgery at some point in the future will fix you up and get rid of that disabling joint pain. It may even be something you’re already considering.

Well, despite popular belief, knee surgery isn’t always your best option. In fact, I seldom recommend it unless it’s absolutely necessary.

You see, awhile back a group of patients with this common knee problem took part in an experiment. All of them went into an operating room and had their knees cut open for surgery. Continue reading

Retire Later, Live Longer

  • To retire or not to retire…
  • People who retire later live longer
  • How to get the most out of your retirement

Here in the U.S., the age 65 means something special. It’s the age we traditionally associate with retirement.

Some people look forward to it. After all, that’s when you’ll finally have time to fix up the house and take regular vacations.

Maybe you plan to move to the mountains for some peace and quiet. Or perhaps you’re goal is to retire near the ocean, where you can take up golf and sailing.

Others hate the idea of leaving their jobs. They enjoy working and like the idea of staying active and involved. They aren’t going to give up their job until somebody forces them out of it.

If you fall into this second category, good for you! Continue reading

  • Over-the-counter allergy meds linked to Alzheimer’s and dementia
  • Are antihistamines shrinking your brain?
  • Here’s how to relieve allergy symptoms… without losing brainpower

I don’t think I know a single person who has never taken an antihistamine. In fact, the use of these over-the-counter drugs is so commonplace that it’s easy to forget that they come with serious side effects.

One of the worst, by far, is their link to the development of Alzheimer’s and dementia. Continue reading
