Better Than Ever

Christmas time is always fun for me. Even though I have family and friends around, I still get a little time to relax, recharge and do a few things I don’t get to do much.

This year, though, I’m charged enough as it is. Because I’m getting ready to go back to Africa… and who wouldn’t be excited about that?

I’m making my Africa to-do list as I write to you, which I’ll tell you more about soon.

I’m going back to see many of the doctors who saw last year. They are Dr. Sekagya, Dr. Kiwalabye, Dr. Kizito, Dr. Mawanda, and Dr. Nakasujja.

I’m also going to Malaysia to give two speeches to the Royal Society of Anti-Aging Medicine. And I’ll be visiting the island of Bali again to finish up my book Healing Herbs of Bali with my friends Westi and Lelir.

Plus, I’m going to Europe for a special meeting I can’t give you details on yet, but I will soon.

I love to travel, and I’m very lucky that I get to go to so many exotic places. And I’m very thankful that I get to see some disappearing cultures that are the last of their kind on earth.

Don’t get me wrong, I feel that times are better than they’ve ever been at any point in the history of humans, and they’re getting better. And technology is allowing countries around the world to grow and move forward.

For example, when I was in India, the fishermen had phones.

They looked very poor, but they had camera phones.

What they would do is have someone on a bicycle riding around to the different vendors at the fish market. They would get pictures of the fish that were just caught out in the ocean, and show them to the fishmongers.

The fish would be sold while the boats were still out at sea.

And when I saw the boats come in, they weren’t huge commercial ships. They’d be these little paddle boats. Little dinghies that didn’t have motors. But they had phones.

And there would be the fish laying at the bottom, already sold by the time they came in. So people got their fish fresher and the fisherman get their catch sold more efficiently.

So technology is moving people forward even in the most exotic places.

But along with our incredible technology comes some of the problems I’ve been writing to you about. Issues with heart health and brain health and premature aging and the inappropriate use and abuse of technology. Including the overuse of drugs and the processing of food.

And some of the forgotten secrets to cure these modern problems are hidden in the knowledge these exotic cultrues possess.

And because it’s my mission to improve the health of those around me, I want to go to as many of these places as I can. And not only to learn from the people there, but also to share what I’ve learned with them. Just like I try to share what I know with you.

And I intend to keep on doing that. So this Christmas I simply want to thank you very much for all your support, and for being a loyal reader and letting me into your inbox each day. And my staff and I hope you and yours have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
