The “Cuddle” Hormone Can Save Your Life

I’m delighted that John Gray, the author of international bestseller Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus, will be speaking at my 2015 Palm Beach Anti-Aging Summit in October. I’m especially pleased he’s going to be talking about the dangers of stress and how it’s on the rise for both men and women – but especially women. I’ve been …

Save Your Brain

Alzheimer’s is one of the most devastating and dreaded diseases I’m confronted with at my South Florida anti-aging clinic. And because I’m based in a part of the country that’s a major retirement Mecca, I see more seniors than the average American physician – and proportionally more Alzheimer’s sufferers. Many patients fear Alzheimer’s more than cancer or any other debilitating …

This Herb’s A Brain Booster

I was hiking in the Amazon Rainforest a few years ago when I was first introduced to a safe and natural super-stimulant that I’ve been recommending to my patients ever since. “This is better than coffee,” a number of my patient s have told me. I usually smile at this point, because the substance I’m talking about is the extract …

These Special Omega-3s Beat Depression

Over the years, I’ve seen an increasing number of patients at my wellness clinic suffering from depression – many without even knowing it. This terrible rise is a reflection of a growing epidemic of depression that’s happening all over the Western world. Depression is often hard to diagnose, because the individual symptoms often point to so many other things. Psychiatrists …

Don’t Sweat The Small Stuff

New Year’s is always a really fun time for me. I have family and friends around, and for the last few years I’ve been able to celebrate with them in Africa. Last night I went to a national gala in Uganda. The king, the ministers, and all of the Ugandan entertainment stars were there. I’ll tell you more about it …

Some Shrooms For Your Brain

I like to study in the morning after I do my PACE workout. It’s quiet, and the sun I get on my back patio here in South Florida is warm and pleasant early in the morning. It feels like my own personal bottle of vitamin D shining down on my skin. I thought about that yesterday in particular as I …

Are You Getting Enough Oxygen?

Oxygen is life. It’s so critical nature programmed your body to take it in automatically with every breath. You don’t have to think about it. But I think about oxygen a lot. It’s so fundamental to life I’m considering naming the med spa that I’m adding to my Wellness Center “Oxygen.” Oxygen is essential for living well and living younger. …

Your Brain on Vegetables

Have you heard about the new “groundbreaking” report on climate change? “No one will escape global warming” the United Nations proclaimed. Many of the articles and reports have a recommendation for “saving the planet”: Stop eating meat and become a vegetarian. The vegeterrorists are at it again. I love vegetables. I eat them every day. But the idea that replacing …

What’s Most Important

I was sitting this morning thinking about what I was going to write to you, and I thought back to the reasons I write to you and the reasons you would want to read it. The reason is simple. I want to make you as healthy as you can be. I’m flattered that people put their confidence in me to …

Stone Age Energy

I think about this subject a lot. I’ve lectured about it… and this whole thing about returning to our roots is something I believe we need to do. The problem is, when I say that, most people come back at me with, “But Dr. Sears, life was brutish back then.” So I have to tell them, “I think you misunderstand. …

There’s an herb that’s not very well know in the United States, but in India, this plant is so revered that they use it in their ritual to consecrate newborn babies.
