My Secret Immune-Boosting Remedy

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

April 14, 2021

When my daughter was younger, I used to give her my secret immune-boosting remedy to help protect her from viral infections.

Today I’m going to share my secret with you.

Two of my favorite spices are ginger and garlic.  So when flu season came around, I would pull out these large jars I had. I’d put sliced organic lemons inside. Then I would add huge chunks of sliced ginger and garlic. Finally I would fill it with organic honey and let it sit for a while. Continue reading

Back when my kids were little, they wanted a treehouse. Well, we lived in North Miami Beach at the time, and it’s really difficult to find an old oak tree to build a treehouse down here. But I had a copse of palm trees in the backyard.

Guess what I did?

I built a “next to the tree” tree house – so the kids could have a house within the trees. Continue reading

Between a year of on-again/off-again lockdowns and a particularly brutal winter, I’ll bet you’re chomping at the bit to get outside again.

Now that the weather’s warming up, you finally have the chance.

But before you hit your local hiking trails or head to a forested area for camping, fishing or backpacking, take note… Continue reading

Three Masks? Are All COVID Headlines Worth Trusting?

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

March 1, 2021

Have you noticed? Everyone seems to have an opinion on how we handle this COVID pandemic.

Sometimes the talking heads talking don’t actually know what they’re talking about.  They’re just rattling off ideas to get their readers or TV viewers excited.

For instance, I recently saw a news article talking about wearing THREE masks… yes… one-two-three! Continue reading

Adrenal Fatigue in the Time of COVID

I just spoke to my favorite cousin the other night.  He’s 62 and has spent 36 years running a college bookstore. So, of course, due to the pandemic, he was recently laid off.

No kids at college means no work for my cousin.

He’s feeling pretty stressed at the moment, just like a lot of us.  With no job and new worries about money, he’s starting to wonder what’s next.  Will he get sick? Continue reading

Milk… It Does Your Body Good?

Milk… it does a body good, right?  Well, actually no.

If you look at things from a medical perspective, milk is actually a huge problem.  It contributes greatly to cancer and diabetes — among other problems…

Personally, I can’t eat dairy anymore without being close to a bathroom for a half-dozen visits over two or three hours. Continue reading

Down here in Florida, we’ve got alligators.

That probably sounds like a no-brainer to you.  But for some, this fact was forgotten when they moved into an exclusive community in southern Florida.

Years ago, a developer bought something like 300,000 acres of the Everglades and filled in the natural swamplands. Then, he added multimillion dollar homes with massive pools. Continue reading

You Have My Permission to Eat This Again…

February 3, 2021

Every time I visit Trader Joe’s, I fill my cart with a variety of rainbow colored fruits and vegetables.  But there’s one food — a superfood — I never go without… eggs!

Yes.  For years, eggs were wrongly labeled as “unhealthy.”  People worried they would raise cholesterol or contribute to heart disease. But more recently, science has won out.

So, I want to set the record straight…  eggs are healthy! Continue reading

January 29, 2021

You might remember an article I posted a few weeks ago.  I talked about the current COVID-19 virus and how it was likely to mutate into a more contagious version.

Well, guess what?

That’s EXACTLY what happened! Continue reading

Did you ever have a really strong reaction to a medication?

Maybe a friend of yours swears by it, but when you take the same exact pills, your body feels like you’ve been through the wringer.

Well, that’s not just your imagination. Continue reading
