A good skin care routine is something we all need in order to keep our faces looking younger and more vibrant.

Personally, I take great care in tending to my skin. Each night I wash away a day’s worth of dirt using a skin-safe cleanser. Then, I apply my Vitamin C serum before going to sleep.

In the mornings, I wash my face and then use a botanical serum with antioxidant polyphenols to make my skin shiny and beautiful. It even plumps things up a bit! Continue reading

Do you like what you see when you look in the mirror? A lot of my patients don’t.

Just today, I looked in my own mirror and noticed a few things. My hair is thinning, age spots are darkening, and a new bruise seems to have appeared on my arm.

I’m constantly being asked how to get rid of certain physical signs of aging. And if you’re over the age of 40, you know what I’m talking about. Continue reading

It seems like every new decade comes with its own set of health issues.

When I turned 30, I got out of bed and my ankles cracked. When I turned 40, my knees cracked. And when I turned 50, my back cracked…

By the time I turned 60, I just hid under my covers and didn’t get up. Continue reading

“Fifty isn’t that old… if you’re a bottle of wine!”

Ha! This message was on a witty birthday card I received when I turned the big five-oh. I received all kinds of wisecrack cards like this.

And then there’s that old line from comedian Phyllis Diller “Maybe it’s true that life begins at fifty. But everything else starts to wear out, fall out, or spread out.” Continue reading

Is Running Really That Good for You?

A lot of gyms are closed these days due to the coronavirus. So it’s no surprise I’m seeing more runners than usual jogging around my neighborhood.

You know, I once thought it’d be good to take up running myself. It sounded like a great idea at the time. I knew I wasn’t getting enough physical activity.

But, somewhere around the second or third week, I wised up. Suddenly, the idea of taking even one more run made my body just ache.

My knees constantly felt sore. My back hurt. And honestly, I felt even worse than I had when I started my running experiment. Continue reading

Is Advice to Limit Red Meat Consumption Wrong?

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

April 20, 2020

I’ll never tell my patients to completely give up red meat. But I do caution them…

Once a week you can have some clean free range, organic red meat. More than that and you’re asking for trouble.

Now, recent news headlines are starting to preach a different story. And I don’t like what I’m seeing.

An article recently displayed this controversial headline: “No need to reduce red or processed meat consumption.” The concept has become a media darling. Continue reading

The Healthiest Beverage on Earth

One of my favorite times of the day is late in the evening.

That’s when I sit outdoors on the patio weather permitting and enjoy a cup or two of green tea.

It’s a soothing time. I sit back and listen to the sounds of nature around me… wild parrots, families of ducks, and the fish splashing in the water behind my house.

It’s not just the relaxing sounds that make me feel good… it’s also the tea itself. Continue reading

Have you ever been on a cruise or vacation and come back a few pounds heavier?

It’s frustrating, I know.

But it doesn’t have to be that way. It just depends on the food choices you make during your trip. Continue reading
