PACE Beats Holiday Sweets

When the holiday season rolls around, it’s easy to become busy and put off even thinking about fitness until after the New Year. I’ve seen it many times… people just throw up their hands and figure, “What can I do?” But the holidays are the worst time of the year to give up on fitness. In fact, over the next …

Biological Age Genius

We have a new arrival at the office… well, OK, our marketing analyst E.T. just had a baby boy, but that’s not what I’m talking about. I’m talking about the telomere testing kits we just got in here at the clinic. I’m going to be the first volunteer to get tested. These kits are new because not only can they …

Real Strength You Can Use

Thinking of buying one of those exercise machines you see advertised? They make great towel racks but few people stick with them. The movements they force you into are often unnatural and do little to train your muscles for real strength. I call it functional strength. It means you have ability to get yourself up a flight of stairs. It …

Move It or Lose It

“What color do you want the walls of your office painted?” K.B. and M.B. thought about that for maybe a second and said, “Not yellow!” We had a good laugh at that one… the cabinets in their office are this weird yellow. It’s kind of a running joke to poke fun at them. But they’re moving over to the new …

Reader Questions Lungpower

Q: Dear Dr. Sears, I’ve been trying to do P.A.C.E., but I get so winded! I can’t catch my breath fast enough and end up making myself dizzy from lack of oxygen. How can I get my lungs working better, faster? Jayne K. A: Dear Jayne, First off, slow down! P.A.C.E. is a progressive challenge … not an Olympic triathlon. …

The Supreme Court Decides

The U.S. Supreme Court upheld the law that many of you know as “Obamacare” yesterday. I wrote to you about this issue last month. Many accused me of inappropriately becoming involved in politics. I think many of those criticisms were really not directed at me, but are a product of politics getting in the way of my practicing medicine. Truth …

Is Exercise Bad for You?

There they go again. “Is Exercise Bad for You?” “Should You Stop Exercising?” The news stories were reacting to a study published in the journal PLOSone, and reported on by the New York Times. The study looked at a group of clinical trials and found that exercise makes some people’s health worse. Especially their heart health.1 Scientists and the writers …

The Purest Place on Earth?

I always thought of the North Pole as the most pristine place on Earth. But not anymore. It’s totally uninhabited by humans. Yet researchers are now finding toxins from the modern world there.1 These deadly chemicals are showing up in some other places you’d never expect them, contaminating wildlife. For instance: Male polar bears in the North Pole are now …

Giving VIP Service

Every time I turn the key in the lock and open the door of my new building, it feels like a dream come true. It’s exactly the sort of place I’ve always wanted for my Wellness Center, and I can’t wait to see it all finished. We’ve been working with Royal Palm Beach officials, architects, builders and suppliers. It’s not …

I Put My Heart Into This

The other day I promised you some of what I’m going to be presenting at the World Conference on Anti-Aging in Malaysia.

During my presentation, I’ll be discussing how my P.A.C.E. program is the world’s first real anti-aging fitness program and showing slides and charts of the things we’ve found in testing P.A.C.E. here at my clinic. Because with P.A.C.E., you can improve many of the biomarkers that get worse with age.

The P.A.C.E. Study Group proved it. And I’ll be doing more studies like it as soon as I open my new Sears Center and make it the home of P.A.C.E.

The Easy Way to Drop the Fat

When it comes to protein, some is good, but more is better. Eating it tells your body to dump the fat! What if the central point of the entire weight-loss industry were all wrong? Trainers and weight “specialists” tell you the only way to drop weight is to consume fewer calories or to melt more calories. But they made a …

Your Body Knows Better

Cardio doesn’t work. Modern fitness “experts” have been pushing the idea that cardiovascular endurance training is the only way to get fit. But your body knows better. It’s why you dread that long, boring, painful workout. So don’t do it anymore. I have something better. And it’s the opposite of “exercise.” It’s easy to do, and it automatically re-trains your …
