Colonoscopy Every 5 Years? Think Again!

surgeon putting on gloves, how to avoid colonoscopy exam

  • Can a stool test replace your next colonoscopy?
  • At home DNA test screens for colon cancer
  • Which type of testing is best for you?

If you shudder at the thought of getting your next colonoscopy, you’ll be glad to know that it may not be necessary.

That’s right. There’s a chance that you don’t have to grit your teeth every five or 10 years at the thought of starving yourself while gulping down huge quantities of liquid laxative to clear out your bowels.

Now, I’ve long been an advocate of colonoscopies. Since the early ‘90s, they’ve been the gold standard when it comes to early detection of colon cancer. This type of cancer is very slow growing. So the earlier it’s detected, the more treatable it is. As a result, colonoscopies make a great deal of sense. Continue reading

  • Are your bowels locked up?
  • Your toilet may be clogging up your colon
  • Why squatting is better than sitting

Do you have to push and strain to force out a bowel movement? Is your reward for all of that hard work a few small, hard pellets that hurt like heck on their way out?

It shouldn’t be this hard to move your bowels. Yet, problems like these plague a whopping 42 million of us here in the U.S.

If you’re one of them, you should know that all of that straining is bad for you. It places you at risk for a heart attack or stroke. It can even lead to brain bleeds or a tear in your aorta, the major artery that carries blood out of your heart. Continue reading

  • Are your fat cells toxic?
  • This could be why you aren’t losing weight
  • Here’s how to get rid of toxic fat

Obesity and diabetes are huge problems days. A lot of folks are calling this the “diabesity epidemic”. I see enough of this combination in my practice to agree with the moniker. These two problems generally go hand-in-hand.

If you have one of these issues – or if you have both – you probably work hard to get regular exercise and eat healthy foods. And it can be very disheartening if you aren’t getting the results you’re looking for.

So you’ll be glad to learn that today I may be able to provide just the help you need to break through any barriers you’re facing. Continue reading

2 Healing Juices You Should Drink Every Day

  • 2 healing juices you should drink every day
  • The power of pomegranate
  • Fortify your health with cherry juice

One of the things I like about certain juices is that the nutrients are highly concentrated and easy to absorb. But that doesn’t mean all juices have a positive impact on your health. In fact, many store-bought juices aren’t any better than drinking a soda. Just read the label to see how many grams of sugar  have been added…one teaspoonful = 3 grams; so that favorite juice with 28 grams of sugar has more than 9 teaspoons full of sugar!

However, there are two juices that are real stand-outs when it comes to boosting your health. They do everything from protecting your heart to slashing your risk of cancer and crushing joint pain.

It’s hard to say that one is better than the other, because they both have a great deal of power behind them. On the other hand, there’s no reason you can’t enjoy each of them on a regular basis.

Let’s take a look at what these juices can do for you… Continue reading

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?

Antacid Warning: Please Read

heartburn, acid reflux, how to heal acid reflux, antacids, PPIs

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

June 24, 2016

  • Why does this class of antacids harm your health?
  • PPIs are now linked to cellular aging
  • Toss those antacids and youthify your cells

Taking heartburn drugs like Prilosec, Nexium and Pepcid sounds harmless enough. So my new patients who take these kinds of antacids are always surprised when I make it a top priority to get them off of these drugs.

These fall into a class of antacids called proton pump inhibitors (PPIs). And they have a terrible effect on your body. Continue reading

Are Your “Natural” Foods REALLY Natural?

  • What the FDA has to say about “natural” food
  • How to guarantee 100% natural food all of the time
  • Tell the government what you REALLY think

How often do you stand in front of the refrigerator or kitchen cabinet, trying to decide what you’re going to eat?

Well, if you lived a few centuries ago, you wouldn’t have had much of a choice. Your only option would have been to eat whatever was available. And your selections would be pretty slim.

If freshly caught meat was available you’d dive into it with relish. But more often than not, you’d end up gathering berries, herbs, nuts and other plant-based foods for your next meal.

These days, eating is much more complicated. And it’s not nearly as healthy – even when it sounds like it is. Continue reading

  • Put an end to inflammation and food intolerance

I find that a lot of people think food sensitivities and allergies are the same thing. If you know the difference between the two, good for you. But if you don’t, let me clear a few things up. Continue reading
