Still Feeling Sick? Try Flushing Out the Metals

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

December 12, 2018

A few months ago my 35 year old neighbor collapsed in his driveway taking the trash out.

He was immediately rushed to the hospital where the medical staff performed a full work-up on him. One diagnostic test after another was carried out. Finally they gave him the good news…

There was nothing wrong with him. He could go home.

My neighbor didn’t believe this for a minute. After all, he still felt horrible. And guess what happened when he tried to leave the hospital? Continue reading

The One Food You cannot Eat under any Circumstance

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

December 7, 2018

As a physician who takes on medical cases that mainstream docs seem to ignore, I’ve seen more than my share of adult-onset food allergies over the years.

And I have to say. The diagnosis is usually a big shocker for the patient… especially when they’ve never had an allergy or food sensitivity before in their life.

“How could this happen to me? Why did something I used to eat all the time turn against me?”

In many cases, new onset food allergies can be chalked up to what I call non-food products. These are additives that are foreign to our bodies. Continue reading

My Grandma’s Secret Recipe against Colds

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

November 23, 2018

Now that we’re in late fall, the common cold is running rampant. And every day – several times a day, in fact – I am hearing the same question over and over again.

“Doctor B, what can I take to get rid of this horrible cold?”

They want to know which over-the-counter cold and cough medicine I recommend. Some of them want me to call in a prescription for antibiotics, thinking that it might help them recover more quickly.

The first thing I do is remind the patients asking for antibiotics that these drugs are only for bacterial infections. They do nothing to stop or cure viral infections like a cold or flu.

And as far as OTC cold remedies are concerned, they don’t speed up the healing process either. They just mask the symptoms. Plus, some of the ingredients found in them are pretty bad for you. Continue reading

The Graphic Truth About Red Meat

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

November 16, 2018

Patients often ask me if eating grass-fed beef is worth the effort. After all, the conventional meat they buy at the grocery store tastes just fine. And the mouth-watering prime rib or filet mignon at their favorite restaurant isn’t grass-fed either.

“So what’s the big deal, Doc?” they ask. “Give me one good reason to switch.”

When this happens I shake my head and sigh. I know I’m going to have to do something I don’t like doing…

…I’m going to have to get graphic to get my point across. Continue reading

The TRUTH about HGH

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

October 31, 2018

The other day one of my patients, a 45-year old car dealer, asked me about HGH injections.

“I’m getting flabby and have almost zero energy,” he told me. “I can’t keep up with my wife, let alone my kids. But a guy at work started taking it and he says the changes are incredible.”

I hear this kind of story a lot. And there is plenty of weight behind the desire to boost levels of this youth hormone. Continue reading

Change Your Genes to Save Your Life

  • Your genes are not your destiny
  • Switch on your disease-fighting genes
  • Shut down your cancer genes with broccoli… and more!

“Should I have my DNA tested to see what diseases I’m at risk for?”

This is a question I hear more and more often these days. And I understand the appeal. It’s human nature to want to know as much about ourselves as possible. DNA testing is a great way to get some of those answers.

So if you want to try it out, I’m not going to discourage you. But I do have a couple of observations to make. Continue reading

I Need to Tell You Something about the Flu Vaccine

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

October 22, 2018

  • Didn’t get your flu vaccine yet? Don’t panic.
  • Easy ways to avoid the flu with getting the shot
  • To Tamiflu or not?

Some of my patients are worried. This is the final week that the CDC recommends getting the flu vaccine. And they haven’t had time to get theirs yet.

If you’re in the same boat, don’t panic. Nobody is going to stop giving flu shots just because it’s the end of October. (And you might decide you don’t even need one.) Continue reading

5 Healthy Fats for your Brain

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

October 19, 2018

  • Why everyone should be a “fathead”
  • What can eating more fat do for your health?
  • It’s time to put these “forbidden” foods back on your menu

When I was a kid, calling someone a “fathead” was an enormous insult. It was the equivalent of calling somebody dim-witted or stupid, but with a little added sting to it. That sort of name-calling could quickly turn into a physical altercation.

Well, that was then. Call me a fathead today and all you’ll get from me is a great big “thank you”. Continue reading

Why I Never Use Artificial Sweeteners

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

October 10, 2018

  • Sugar free isn’t always your healthiest choice
  • Why you should never use artificial sweeteners
  • The best sugar substitute on earth

There are plenty of places to lay blame for today’s epidemic of obesity and diabetes. And most of them boil down to lifestyle choices.

However, there is one thing that I believe is greatly adding fuel to the problem. It’s a common decision that millions of people make every day in the name of good health.

It’s the conscious choice to opt for artificially sweetened foods and beverages.

Let me explain… Continue reading

  • Why dangerously addictive drugs aren’t your best defense against anxiety
  • The neurotransmitter that changes the way you interpret fear
  • 4 completely natural (and effective!) ways to relieve anxiety

Constant anxiety can be overwhelming. It’s one of those emotions that can grab hold of you, then never seem to let go.

And there are so many things that can cause it!

Money woes, problems at work, health concerns, the death of a loved one and other troubling personal events top the list. But it doesn’t stop there. Headlines are riddled with news of natural disasters, shootings and other events that often lead to mass casualties.

These “life events” can leave you in a constant state of anxiety and fear. You might even think about asking your doctor for an anti-anxiety drug like Xanax.

Before you do that, consider this: Continue reading
