There is something weird going on in America…

When people move here from countries like Asia, they start gaining weight. They develop metabolic syndrome, diabetes and cardiovascular disease.

In other words, these people begin to experience the same devastating health problems that plague those here in the U.S. day in and day out.

Why is America so deadly? Continue reading

The Hidden Reason You Aren’t Losing Weight

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

November 28, 2018

In last Monday’s issue of Advanced Natural Wellness, I talked about the risk of excess body weight – particularly central obesity – when it comes to mortality rates.

This isn’t a new topic.

But it did generate a lot of questions from readers who are dealing with extremely stubborn belly fat. They’re sick of it. They want to get rid of it. But in some cases, they don’t feel that exercise and diet are working for them.

So today I want to dig a little deeper into something that may be sabotaging your weight loss efforts… and share some of the strategies I use in my own practice to help patients demolish deadly central obesity. And with great success! Continue reading

The Problem with BMI

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

November 26, 2018

The other day a new study hit my desk. And it confirms the results of every other study done on the topic of body mass…

…A high BMI increases your chances of an early death!

This isn’t breaking news.

You know as well as I do that being overweight is detrimental to your health. And sadly, nearly 75% of Americans are overweight or obese. I see it every day here in my own practice.

On the other hand, I don’t necessarily agree that BMI is always the best indicator of obesity. Or early death. Continue reading

15 Minutes a Day to shave 9 years off

Bette Davis once said, “Old age is no place for sissies.” And I’ll tell you. I’ve met more than my share of patients who seem to share this sentiment. These are the ones who seem to think aging is a slow and tortured downward spiral.

They expect to grow old, sick and feeble as the years go by. And while it’s unfortunate, it’s a trait I see in a lot of people. And some of that is reinforced by physicians who respond to their patient’s complaints with “ you should expect that at your age”.

But it doesn’t have to be that way. You actually have a great deal more control over the aging process then you might imagine. 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

Is Farm-Raised Salmon Really Toxic?

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

August 31, 2018

  • Never buy farm-raised salmon again
  • How many toxic chemicals are in your store-bought salmon fillet?
  • Selecting the healthiest and freshest salmon for your family

When it comes to choosing healthy fish, one of my top recommendations is wild-caught Alaskan salmon. It has a mild taste and meaty texture that makes it an easy fish for people to like. Plus, it tends to stay moist and tender once it’s cooked up.

However, I often find that when patients can’t locate wild-caught Alaskan salmon at the supermarket fish counter, they frequently opt for the more readily available farm-raised salmon. After all, salmon is salmon, right?

Not exactly. Continue reading

  • Today’s meat isn’t anything like the meat of our ancestors
  • Is supermarket meat making you sick?
  • 3 key phrases help you to always select the best meat, poultry and fish you can buy

Did you know that the average American will eat about 222 pounds of meat this year?

That’s a heck of a lot of meat!

At the same time, around 90% of people here in the U.S. can’t even manage to eat the recommended 1½ to 2 cups of fruit and 2 to 3 cups of vegetables each day.

This is absolutely tragic. Not only are most folks missing out on the enormous health benefits of eating their fruits and vegetables, they are poisoning their bodies with toxic commercial meat products.

You see, today’s retail meat products aren’t anything like the ones your ancestors ate. They’re laced with hormones, antibiotics and raised on GMO feed. And it’s truly damaging the health of Americans. Continue reading

You walk from your house to the mailbox… from parking lots to buildings … and troll the mall on occasion. But how often do you walk, just for the sake of walking?
