Stop Your Brain From Shrinking

Did you know our brains shrink as we age?
Over the course of your life, your brain will lose five to 10 percent of its weight. It starts around your 20th birthday.
There are two things I want to tell you about today that can help prevent this very unfortunate consequence of aging.
One is an herb, and the other is a nutrient.
The herb I’m going to tell you about can actually help you to grow new brain cells.

This Is Your Brain on Margarine

There’s now another reason to avoid margarine. It can make you stupid.
According to researchers at the University of Auckland, children who ate margarine every day had significantly lower IQ scores by the age of three-and-a-half than those who did not.1
And children who were underweight at birth had scores that were even lower by the time they were seven.
The tragedy here is that margarine was sold to us as a “healthier” alternative to butter. In fact, it may be the unhealthiest “food” ever created…

Life Is Like a Box of Chocolates

If you ate chocolate on Valentine’s Day, I have some news for you. You don’t have to feel guilty.
In fact, I have evidence that you may have cut your risk from dying of a stroke nearly in half.
Two studies give us great news about chocolate.
The first study found that people who ate one serving of chocolate per week were 22% less likely to have a stroke.1
The second study found that people who ate 50 grams of chocolate once a week were 46% less likely to die following a stroke than those who didn’t eat chocolate.2
About 80% of strokes occur when there isn’t enough blood getting to the brain.3 Your brain is starved of oxygen and nutrients and begins to die immediately…

How to Sidestep This Disturbing Trend…

Have you seen the TV commercial? The one where the guy isn’t getting results from one antidepressant, so he’s taking two?
Doctors hand out these drugs like candy.
When I started my practice, this was pretty rare. By the 90s, everyone was on Prozac. Today, patients walk in on two or three antidepressants. And a lot of the times, they’re on other addictive drugs, too.
This is a disturbing trend. We don’t really know what the dangers are when you mix these drugs…

The Truth About Antidepressants…

This past holiday season, I had a few patients come to me after taking antidepressants.
The drugs weren’t doing anything for them. This is something I see all too often.
Antidepressants are prescribed for everything under the sun. Many times for symptoms that don’t even fall under the prescription guidelines.
But it’s big business. In a recent study, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported that antidepressant drugs are the most prescribed drug in America.
Unfortunately, they rarely work. In fact, they can do more harm than good…

Merry Christmas!

Did you ever hear that suicides increase on Christmas? Well, how about some good news? It’s just not true. I looked it up in every database I could find. And, well … it’s a myth.
But it is true that when Christmas rolls around, and the days are shorter, your bodily rhythms get out of kilter, and you may experience Seasonal Affective Disorder, or SAD syndrome. SAD is what we used to call the “winter blues.” Even here in sunny Florida, the days aren’t quite as bright or as long, and we start feeling the effects.
The thing about SAD is you may not even know you have it. You just know you feel a little down. And the added stress of the holidays can add to the problem…

Cell Phone Safety List

When I was hiking through the Andes, I saw people chatting on their cell phones. In Kerala, India, I saw fishermen call into shore their boats to negotiate a price for the day’s catch. They even send pictures!
Cell phones are ubiquitous. Especially in the third world, they give people that wouldn’t otherwise be able to afford it access to the internet. And in that way, the cell phone is one of the greatest inventions of our time.
But I’m conflicted about the health consequence.

Fire Up Your Brain

My alarm is ringing. I headed to the kitchen for a glass of Choline Punch. It gives me more energy than coffee without the jitters, shakes or crashes.
And it fires up my brain, gives me better memory, better recall and focus and concentration.
Choline is the fuel your brain uses to create acetylcholine, the neural transmitters that let your brain cells talk to each other.
Choline is not a luxury; it’s a necessity.
And with the added kick of getting you fired up in the morning, Choline Punch is a sure thing. And it’s safe enough to use every day.
Keep reading. This special report shows you how to get started…

Could You Have Economic Fatigue?

More and more of my patients say they’re tired, can’t sleep and feel exhausted all of the time… they just can’t seem to pick their energy levels up again.
The worry over job losses, rising prices and a poor economy has everyone on edge. In fact, a recent American Psychological Association poll showed that 75% of Americans identified money as a significant source of stress in their lives… with the economy, housing costs and job stability following right on it’s heels…

Can Coffee Combat Alzheimer's?

Your morning cup o’ joe may protect you from one of the most dreaded diseases of our time.
A new study published in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease says that drinking five medium-sized cups of coffee a day could lower your chances of Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s.1
