‘Youth Drug’ Popular with the Rich and Powerful (You Can Get It, Too)

By |2018-11-08T06:14:14+00:00November 8th, 2018|Pharmacology|

Almost 70 years ago, Dr. Ana Aslan, a cardiologist from Rumania, pioneered a treatment to fight aging. It was an injected local anesthetic called procaine (Novocaine), combined with antioxidants and stabilizing agents. You probably know Novocaine as an anesthetic dentists use to numb the teeth and jaw.

The remedy was said to boost health and vitality, and was touted as an elixir of youth. This encouraged rich and famous people like Charlie Chaplin, Kirk Douglas, John F. Kennedy and Winston Churchill to fly to Dr. Aslan’s clinic in a small city called Otopeni.

Her remedy was called Gerovital H3 (GH3), and today […]

Research now shows you can improve your health and increase your chances of living longer with a snack that doesn’t cost much, and is already popular for good reason: it’s delicious.

This goes against the widespread belief that the foods that help you get healthier are dull and tasteless. Ice cream, alas, does not appear on any list of health foods I’ve seen, but this is almost as good. . .

Nuts– one of my all-time favorite munchies – have proven again and again to help the body fight off illness, improve your brain and increase your life expectancy.

It doesn’t even seem […]

By |2018-10-18T08:06:11+00:00October 18th, 2018|Lifestyle|

Since the early 1900s it’s been taken for granted that our life expectancy, year by year, would keep getting longer and longer. What with improved knowledge of nutrition, better medical care and more of it, safer jobs…

And for a long time, the average person was living longer. But no more.

In many parts of the US and the world, life expectancy has begun to grow shorter. If you don’t want to be a victim of this disturbing trend, keep reading to find out what you need to do.

According to researchers at John Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, the annual increase […]

Imagine there was a natural compound that could figure out what was wrong with your body and fix it.

The “Mushroom of Immortality”

The compound comes from the “Mushroom of Immortality,” as some cultures call […]

Are You Working Yourself into an Early Grave?

By |2018-10-04T12:19:15+00:00October 4th, 2018|Lifestyle|

If workers in Germany, the richest country in Europe, can enjoy 40 days off a year, why do we Americans take only 17 days’ vacation?

Even with this miserly number, more than half of us don’t even use all the vacation days we’re entitled to, and – this kind of amazes me – one out of four don’t take any time off at all.1

Whatever the reasons for the difference (maybe because employees in every other advanced nation in the world have paid annual leave required by law), it’s vital to take a good break from work – your health and lifespan […]

Long ago, the series of movements called tai chi originated in China as a form of martial arts.

Today, instead of being used to fight human enemies, tai chi’s easy-to-learn, graceful, steady motions are mainly used to fight off aging.

Here are some of the practical benefits of this popular meditative exercise.

Although tai chi’s slow movements don’t seem to require much exertion, research shows that it produces significant health benefits. It can bring on changes in the body that push back against the aches, pains and physical problems that beset us with the passing years.

Put on a Happy Face – It Will Extend Your Life

By |2018-09-20T13:13:53+00:00September 20th, 2018|Lifestyle|

Be happy. Enjoy life. It pays off in spades. Scientists even have an estimate as to how long it will take you to see a change in your physical health: about three years.1

In our instant-gratification society, that may seem like a slow-working medicine, but while you wait you get to be. . . well, happier. And that seems like an end in itself.

The resulting better health brings a longer, potentially more satisfying life. But what really interests researchers today is not so much the link between feeling happy, good health and life expectancy, but whether life happiness by itself adds […]

Air Pollution is Stealing as Much as 10 Years Off Your Life

By |2018-09-06T03:51:07+00:00September 6th, 2018|Natural Health|

Nine million people each year die at an earlier age than they have to because of air pollution. It’s the world’s biggest environmental cause of disease and early death. But progress in tackling it has been slow. In many countries, environmental needs range from low to no priority.

Recently, the UK’s Chief Medical Officer said, “This needs to change. As a society we need to regain a focus on pollution as a threat to human health.”

A study focusing on only one type of air pollution has just been published. This particular toxin alone was found to reduce lifespan by one year […]
