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.

January 20, 2021

There’s no doubt the human brain is pretty fantastic. Add in elements of spirituality… and things become even more astounding.

Just look at the monks of Tibet.

When they are ready to test out of apprenticeship, they sit completely naked with their bodies wrapped in cold, wet sheets.  Then, they are left in freezing temperatures to sit. Continue reading

There’s no doubt modern science can do some pretty fantastic things…

Just look at our recent advancements in space science or the newest vaccination for COVID-19.  With the right amount of funding and enough brains in action, we can achieve greatness.

The #1 Lesson I Learned From Living Abroad

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

January 8, 2021

I never used to eat fish.  It just tasted… well, like FISH!  I thought it was slimy, greasy and just plain awful.

Then, I moved to the Caribbean nation of Grenada to live for a few years and everything changed.

I used to wake up with the sun streaming in my window.  Looking down over the mountainside, I would see workers on 10-foot long fishing boats hard at work on the seas. Continue reading

You are what you eat, right?

Well… not actually.  You are what you digest.

This can become an issue as you age. Continue reading

I read an article the other day that surprised me.  It said a record high 23% of twenty-something men aren’t have sex regularly.[1]

“Are you kidding me? Why in the world not?”

I know many older men who would love to be having sex like they did in their youth. But their bodies just aren’t cooperating.

These older fellows come into my office begging me for help with their performance.  And they’re not alone… Continue reading

The 10 Commandments for Meat Eating

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

December 25, 2020

I like meat.

Perhaps once a week, I’ll sit down to a delicious meal with one of my favorite meat dishes…

It might be braised lamb cooked to perfection.  Or, I’ll try a beautiful piece of salmon beside some delicious grilled veggies. Then, there are the nights where I’ll cook up some bison and pile it high with toppings for a burger.

Even though I often preach about eating mostly veggies, I do love a quality piece of meat on occasion.  That’s why I wanted to clear up some confusion on when and how meat should be enjoyed in your own home. Continue reading

Expensive Urine? Think Again!

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

December 23, 2020

In my experience, there are people in two camps of thinking. Those who take their vitamins… and those who don’t.

People who scoff at the idea of supplementing think it’s a way to create expensive urine. After all, anything not used by your body just gets processed by your liver and kidneys — then expelled from the body.

These folks would be shocked by the number of supplement bottles lining my bathroom countertop.

I always respond to folks like this… Continue reading
