  • Is your gut making you sick?
  • Feed this “forgotten organ” for health and longevity
  • Give it some exercise, too!

You can’t see your heart. Still, you try to take good care of it.

You can’t see your brain, either. However, that doesn’t stop you from trying to ward off dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.

But what do you do for your gut?

This is a question I often ask my patients. And most of them just shake their heads. They have no idea what the answer is. After all, unless you experience heartburn, an upset stomach, diarrhea or constipation, you probably don’t pay much attention to it.

Big mistake!

These days the gut microbiome is often referred to as the “forgotten organ”. And for good reason. Continue reading

Ancient Herb Boosts Mood and Memory

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

  • Does a poor mood and bad memory have you off your game?
  • Discover the ancient medicinal herb that boosts memory and brain function
  • Shake off the stress and anxiety of every day life

Among all of the health concerns I hear among my patients, there are several non-specific complaints that appear to crop up more frequently than others. They may sound familiar to you…

  • “My memory isn’t what it used to be.”
  • “I’m not as happy and energetic as I was just a few years ago.”
  • “I feel old, tired and cranky.”

You might think that these changes in mental status are just something you have to live with. But there is nothing further from the truth. Continue reading

Ignore these Food Groups at Your Own Peril

  • Two food groups Americans ignore at their own risk
  • Fruits and veggies save lives
  • How to get the most out of your produce

Everybody knows that eating fruits and vegetables is good for them.

So you might find it astonishing to learn that only 12% of U.S. adults eat the recommended one and a half to two cups of fruit each day. Even fewer – only 9% – are meeting the vegetable guidelines of two to three cups a day.

If anything, we should be eating more than the government’s recommendations, not less.

This is a very sad state of affairs; especially considering that higher intake of plant-based foods can stave off many of today’s killer diseases by helping to lower the expression of pro-inflammatory genes. Continue reading

2 Super-Herbs that Restore Energy, Focus, and Vitality

  • Living in the modern-world with a caveman’s coping mechanism
  • Is your flight-or-fight response keeping you in an exhausted state?
  • My secret weapon for relaxed and alert energy all day long

Ever have those times when you feel exhausted, but still can’t rest? It’s an epidemic today.

People feel both “tired and wired” at the same time. They drag during the day, but then can’t sleep well at night. They need caffeine and sugar to keep them going during the day and then need something to help them sleep at night.

I have an expression for this. I call it “Living with full-time stress on a caveman’s coping mechanism.”

You see, whenever you feel threatened, your body goes into a “fight or flight” response. Continue reading

  • It’s official. Cough medicines don’t work.
  • The science behind your cough
  • Here’s how to get rid of a nasty cough

It’s cold and flu season again. And one of the most annoying symptoms that come with these viral infections is the constant cough that never seems to go away. Sometimes it’s enough to make you feel like you’re going to hack your lungs right out of your throat.

As a result, I hear the same questions day after day…

… “Should I buy Robitussin or Mucinex?”

… “Do I need a suppressant or an expectorant?”

… “Will an antihistamine help dry me up?”

… “If I take an anti-inflammatory pain killer will my cough go away faster?”

Personally, I don’t recommend any of these options as a resolution to calm those hacking, lung-wrenching coughs coming from your chest. And it might surprise you to learn that the American College of Chest Physicians doesn’t recommend them, either. Continue reading

Consider THIS Before Your Next Flu Shot

how to prevent getting the flu, how to boost immunity, the truth about flu shots, cut risk of the flu with this critical essential vitamin support supplement

  • Getting a flu shot doesn’t prevent you from getting the flu
  • Things to consider before your next flu shot
  • Check out this flu-fighting vitamin

If you’ve been debating on whether to get your flu shot or not, I just want to make one thing clear.

Getting a flu shot does not prevent you from getting the flu.

That’s right. It only protects you against influenza viruses that researchers think will be common during the upcoming flu season. To top it off, the influenza virus is constantly mutating. So it’s nearly impossible to predict its form far enough in advance to create a truly effective vaccine.

As a result, vaccine effectiveness varies greatly from year to year. Continue reading

Is Plant-Based Always Best?

Are plant based diets always best?, best oil for your heart and overall health, best source of omega 3's and omega 6's, fish oil vs. ahi flower oil, fish oil vs. alternative plant-based oils

  • Are plant-based omega-3 fatty acids the same as those that come from fish?
  • Here’s what flaxseed and Ahiflower® are missing
  • The best source of omega-3s on earth

One of the supplements I recommend everyone take… every single day… is omega-3 fatty acids. Your body doesn’t produce them on its own, and it can’t function without them. So these essential oils have to come from dietary sources.

But surprisingly, choosing an appropriate omega-3 supplement isn’t nearly as cut-and-dried as you might think.

Part of the confusion arises when plant-based products, like flaxseed oil, claim to provide omega-3 benefits. It sounds good in theory, especially if you’re a vegetarian. However, plant-based omega-3s are not interchangeable with those that come from fish oil. Continue reading

2 Secrets Towards Your Healthiest Life

  • Is life too fast-paced to exercise and eat right?
  • 15 minutes to a healthier you
  • Antioxidant-rich foods that can save your life

If you want to live a longer and healthier life – one without physical and mental deficits as you age – two things are absolutely necessary. And they aren’t a well-kept secret. You’ve heard them many times before…

Get plenty of physical activity and eat a healthy diet.

This is something our ancestors never even thought about. They ate off the land and were physically active from sun-up to sun-down. No trips to the supermarket or jobs sitting at a desk for them!

But in today’s modern and fast-past society, meeting these two goals seems to be a far stretch for many folks. And it’s showing. Continue reading

Is this Deficiency Making You Sick, Old and Depressed?

  • Correct this deficiency and amazing things can happen
  • Up to 75% of all Americans are D-ficient
  • A strong weapon against aging, illness and death

Some people refer to their bodies as “machines”. But I have to tell you. Keeping your body finely tuned is a great deal more complicated than, say, maintaining a car. You can’t “fix” your body by clearing a pipe, turning a wrench or replacing a hose.

However, there are many things that can help make your body less likely to break down and succumb to age, illness, pain, depression or early death.

Maintaining adequate levels of vitamin D is one of them. For example patients with low vitamin D levels…. Continue reading

Diabetic Gut? Not Just Sugar

  • Diabetes may be a gut problem
  • Foods that contribute to diabetic gut
  • Gut and metabolism friendly foods

Here’s something that will startle you.

Fifty years ago, only about three million people here in the U.S. had diabetes.

But today more than 29 million are afflicted with the disease. That’s almost a 900% increase! This doesn’t even include the 89 million people who are prediabetic.

This is a horrible epidemic. And it’s no coincidence diabetes rates continue to skyrocket as more and more chemicals, processed foods and altered ingredients end up in our food supply. Continue reading
