I feel like I did back in my college days when I was a windsurfer. I used to chase hurricanes down for a thrill ride. I’m still adventurous, but if I did that today I’d probably break something. And now, one of those storms found me. The wind wasn’t so bad, but we got 15 inches of rain where I …
“So what did you learn from the supermodels?” That’s what the women at my office want to know when I come back from Brazil. I go there as often as I can to meet with herbal healers… and while I’m there, I don’t pass up a chance to visit the world-famous beaches of Rio de Janeiro. Even though Brazil has …
Today I feel strongly compelled to bring something up with you. Now before you say “I already know about that,” give me a chance to point out what most of my colleagues are getting wrong about this substance. I’m talking about DHEA. You’ve probably heard about this, right? It stands for dehydroepi-androsterone. Most people will tell you that it’s a …
Have you heard of HRT? It’s “hormone replacement therapy” – the most natural and beneficial way to replace the hormones your body loses with age. Especially when it comes to getting rid of symptoms associated with menopause like hot flashes, mood swing and weight gain. But what Big Pharma calls HRT isn’t the same thing. It’s not natural to your …
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 …
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 …
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 …
Most doctors treat low estrogen as the sole cause of menopause. But looking at declining estrogen only gives you half the picture. At the onset of menopause, your body’s progesterone production falls to almost zero. Many women I measure have progesterone below the lowest detectable limit of the blood test. Having a healthy amount of progesterone can help keep you …
I’ve helped thousands of women look and feel more beautiful at my clinic over the years.
And I know it’s important to you to keep your eye area looking nice and clean with proper eyebrow grooming.
But there’s something important you should know.
Most of the “advice” I see on Dr. Oz and Oprah, in Women’s Health and in the New York Times Magazine on Sunday seem to center on the same things.
These reports I’ve been seeing lately give women advice like suggesting you eat fake, processed “health” foods like flaxseed. But they’re unnatural to your body. People used to wear flax, not eat it.
And animal studies have found that overdose of flaxseed may cause shortness of breath, rapid breathing, weakness or difficulty walking, and may cause seizures or paralysis.1
Too many articles I’ve read also recommend you load up on more calcium that you could ever want or use. Meanwhile, studies show too much calcium puts you at a 31 percent greater risk for heart attack.2
And did you see the report on women’s heart health from the director of the Cardiovascular Nutrition Laboratory at Tufts University? It’s one of the most prestigious research universities in the country. And here she is, concluding that women should eat whole grains instead of vegetables.
Today I’m going to show you some real ways to stay healthy. Forget junk foods like soy, flax and whole grains. Here are four things you can use to avoid disease and help you stay happy and strong for life…
It may be the most important discovery in human history. In fact, it recently won the Nobel Prize in Medicine.
I’ve discovered a way to apply this amazing breakthrough to make you look younger and restore the radiance of your youth.
This recently discovered revitalizing gem lies dormant in your skin’s DNA. It’s the key to reducing the appearance of wrinkles and crow’s feet, banishing the appearance of sun and age spots, and keeping smooth, tight skin.
On my last trip to Peru, I spent days trekking with native healers through the rainforest. And they shared many of their secrets with me. But one of the biggest breakthroughs I discovered on that trip wasn’t in the rainforest at all.
In cities and towns across Southern Peru, I noticed women – even older women – with smooth, beautiful skin. Living that close to the equator, the intense sun should leave their skin, dry, rough and wrinkled. What was their secret? I wondered.
So I did some digging, and uncovered a secret. And I’ve brought it back to the United States to share with my patients and friends. Soon you may have people wondering how you keep your skin looking so smooth and beautiful.
Today I want to let you in on a cure for hot flashes and other symptoms of menopause that my friend and herbalist Iveyln Harris showed me.
Have you heard about Ivey yet? She has a reputation throughout Jamaica as a great natural healer.
Ivey built her practice on her experience and knowledge of the rich culture and heritage of her ancestors, the Koromantyn of West Africa. They came to Jamaica five hundred years ago and became known as the Maroons when they were driven deep into the John Crow Mountains.
I was just reading the journal Human Reproduction. A Danish study found that if a woman who’s pregnant with a son takes just one 500 mg acetaminophen pill during her second trimester he’s twice as likely to have fertility problems.
It gets worse. If she takes more than one type of painkiller, the risk goes up 1,600 percent.1
The reason is that painkillers, considered “mild” and “safe” by most doctors, suppress testosterone. And not just a little. They drive it down more than the 10 most “gender-bending” chemicals called estrogen mimics that women are exposed to normally – like BPA and plastic-hardening phthalates – combined.
Women have a longevity secret. It’s in their genes.
Not only will I tell you what it is, I’ll show you how you can use this simple secret to increase your “health span.” That’s what I call the length of time you can live while still feeling healthy and happy.
Without your realizing it, modern medicine has withheld the options you need to make healthy, informed decisions. In essence, your sexual energy has fallen victim to ignorance and misinformation.
Most doctors think testosterone is a privilege for men only. While men certainly need it, the idea that it has no place in a woman’s life is not only wrong, it’s dangerous.
When your levels drop, you’ll feel it: loss of motivation, heavy fatigue, and little to no interest in the things that usually make you happy, including sex.
But I’ve discovered compelling studies that support what I’ve known for years:
In today’s Doctor’s House Call, I’m going to tell you how to combat one of the most dangerous threats to your health today.
Estrogen is found in the hormone-laden meat you get at the grocery store. It’s found in plastic, too. Every time you take a sip from your water bottle or heat up a frozen dinner, you’re ingesting harmful chemicals that create synthetic estrogen in your body.
This can cause you to have too much estrogen. Why is that a problem?
When I was in med school 25 years ago, a small group of researchers were quietly laying the groundwork for a breakthrough that, at the time, sounded like science fiction.
Today it’s reality. People like you are keeping the power of youth into old age. I’ve seen it first hand.
Being one of the first board certified doctors in anti-aging medicine, I’ve had a front row seat for this remarkable discovery. The breakthrough I’m talking about is a brand new form of CoQ10 called Accel. It’s helping my patients make unbelievable gains…
