    Chimpanzees nicer cousins taught me . . .

    When I return to Africa in a few months I’ll make my base in the same spot near Kampala, Uganda where I’ve gone for my last two trips there. I’m blessed to have been in Africa four times now. It’s some of the most incredible landscape I’ve ever seen. It’s unique because it’s where the [...]

    Cancer, Heart Disease and Telomeres

    Here’s a truth about cancer … you don’t get cancer because your aunt Mae or anyone else in your family had it. The high rate of occurrence is indicative of how far from our natural environment we’ve strayed. Man-made chemicals, toxicants and pollutants, combined with the loss of nutrient protection from food, for example, make [...]

    Concentrate on this: a protective buffer zone in your brain

    Last week a popular newsletter mentioned me on a list of the world’s top integrative medicine doctors. They even had a little paragraph that mentioned I’m well known for my work in fitness and exercise. I’m happy people know me for showing people how the right kind of exertion can increase heart and lung power, [...]

    Teddy Roosevelt Never Knew Telomeres (Science of Nutrition & Aging)

    If you were not following my letters 10 years ago, you probably wouldn’t know that I used to teach nutrition at Barry University in South Florida. I love to teach, but I found that the students almost always didn’t have a basic understanding of nutrition, so I would start by teaching them what the vitamins [...]

    Immune Boosting Amazon Miracle

      My friend and I hacked a narrow path through the underbrush. It was the second day of our journey, deep into the jungles of the Amazon. I was on my way to speak to a curandero, a native healer, about a plant the locals believe has magical healing properties. They use this herb in [...]

    Your Most Powerful Muscle

    Growing old doesn’t have to mean loss of independence. But there are a few things you need to watch out for. High on my list are your muscles. Muscle power means youth, vitality and independence. Unless you do something about it, muscle loss (sarcopenia) is like a progressive disease. Your body simply “wastes away” over [...]

    You Don’t Know Jackfruit!

    The other night I turned on my TV and brought up the on-screen guide, and I saw a listing for a show from the island of Bali.  I couldn’t resist tuning in… It was the travel show with the guy who eats the strange and outrageous foods, Andrew Zimmern. He was at a ceremonial pig roast. [...]

    Drugs and Anti-Aging

    Sometimes patients come to me with what they call “symptoms of old age.” But often they’re not symptoms at all. They’re side effects. Here’s what I mean: Prescription drugs cause side effects that look a lot like “aging.” Research shows some drugs cause major cellular damage. They attack the mitochondria, the tiny energy generators in [...]

    HFCS: High Fructose Cancer Syrup

    Since I’ve been writing to you about the dangers of high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) and how unnatural it is for you, you’ve probably seen the ads by corn growers. They want you to believe it’s the same as any other sugar. Their newest tactic they’re using is so-called “scientific” research. It claims corn syrup [...]

    Testosterone and Anti-Aging

    When I entered my practice, one of the first things I wanted to do, a few years before the A4M (American Academy of Anti-Aging) came along, was to help reverse what was happening to my male patients. Now I’m taking it a step further. It will be part of the purpose of my new Palm [...]
