Seeing the Same Doctor Will Help You Live Longer

By |2020-09-10T12:29:52+00:00September 10th, 2020|Natural Health|

With the coronavirus pandemic, visits to the doctor’s office have slumped, often replaced with phone and video appointments.

Consulting with doctors remotely and using telemedicine or virtual health care is clearly here to stay and will only grow in the months and years ahead.

But the lack of personal contact and continuity of care with the same physician could have an unintended, and very unfortunate, consequence. It may shorten your life.

A decade ago, a group of researchers from the University of Iowa carried out the first study to evaluate death rates with continuity of care, or the repeated contact between a patient […]

Just a Little of this Longevity Nutrient Triggers Genes to Fight Aging

By |2020-09-03T14:19:40+00:00September 3rd, 2020|Nutrition|

If you’re wondering if medical researchers will come up with a longevity pill that can help you live longer, you might be excited to find out that they’re making headway.

Of course, it will be years until an actual anti-aging pill makes it to the market, but the good news is that the natural compound they’re most interested in – the one that shows the most promise – is available right now.

In fact, you can have some of this powerful life-extending nutrient with your dinner tonight.

I’m talking about resveratrol.

While you’ve already heard a lot about this anti-aging chemical found in red […]

Is Plant Protein the Fountain of Youth?

By |2020-08-27T12:56:07+00:00August 27th, 2020|Nutrition|

Diets high in protein, particularly plant protein, have been linked to lower risks of developing diabetes, heart disease and stroke. However, regular consumption of protein-rich red meat and high intake of animal proteins has been linked to several health problems.1

Despite the research, there hasn’t been a definitive answer on which protein is better for longevity. That’s why I was intrigued by a massive new research review by Harvard scientists that finds a correlation between longevity and certain kinds of protein.

Let’s dig into these interesting new findings.

In what is the largest analysis to date on protein and mortality rates, researchers from […]

How to Grow Younger with the Right Attitude

By |2020-08-20T13:27:58+00:00August 20th, 2020|Lifestyle|

When researchers investigated why some folks age better and stay healthier longer than others, they were surprised to find that one powerful factor in their favor can be simple: attitude.

The evidence from these studies shows that it’s vital to work on developing an anti-aging attitude if you want to live the best, longest life possible. Fortunately, adopting the right attitude is easy when you have the right tools.

So, what is this fountain-of-youth frame-of-mind that researchers have uncovered?

It’s simply maintaining a healthy independence and sense of control over your life.

Researchers at North Carolina State University have shown that older adults feel […]

Trust Me – Your Attitude to Others Will Help You Live Longer

By |2020-08-13T11:24:19+00:00August 13th, 2020|Lifestyle|

It’s sometimes called the ‘glue’ that binds societies together. And yet trust has been declining across the U.S. since the 1960s.

You could say our trust in others has gone from bad to worse with the COVID-19 pandemic. Mask wearing, social distancing and isolation are tantamount to saying, “Keep away, I don’t trust you.”

And yet trust is not only a core feature of a modern civilization, the latest research strongly links your ability to trust to your life expectancy.

Trust Adds Ten Months to Life

It seems surprising to suggest that the trust you put in others predicts how long you’re likely to […]

Rejuvenating “Old” Blood Reverses Aging

By |2020-08-06T12:35:11+00:00August 6th, 2020|Natural Health|

Over a century ago, early doctors performed experiments joining two living organisms together surgically so they share the same blood supply. Yes, it sounds Frankenstein-esque, and these experiments did fall out of favor for a time, but have recently been revived for research into the subject of aging.

The procedure is called parabiosis, which is Latin for “living beside.” We’ve written about it before, and in fact there was a lot of buzz about it several years ago. Some doctors enthused that it could lead to a fountain of youth.

Parabiosis-related therapies do not seem to be very popular at the moment, […]

Your Tongue Holds the Secret to a Longer Life

By |2020-08-05T13:59:18+00:00July 30th, 2020|Natural Health|

Some people spend a small fortune in an attempt to look younger and live longer. They rub on expensive anti-aging creams, undergo painful Botox injections, or seek out cutting-edge stem cell replacement therapy — all in the name of radiant, youthful health.

While many of these treatments do provide tangible results, there’s an important anti-aging remedy that’s all but forgotten, and it needn’t cost you more than five dollars.

In fact, this affordable remedy can not only help you slow down aging, but the research also shows it can help lower blood pressure and protect your cardiovascular system.

It’s a tongue scraper.

Tongue scraping […]

Shocking News: Lower BMI Can Signal Higher Risk of Death

By |2020-07-23T23:35:46+00:00July 23rd, 2020|Natural Health|

Body mass index (BMI) is praised by clinicians as the standard way to diagnose patients who are overweight or obese.

If your BMI drifts into the “overweight” zone, your doctor is quick to give advice on lifestyle changes, such as eating less and exercising more, to bring your BMI down into the healthy range.

The trouble is, using BMI as a sole indicator of being overweight ignores the sizable group of men and women who have a ‘healthy’ BMI, but also have a large waistline.

Believe it or not, such people, the evidence shows, are at even greater risk of premature death than […]

A Dose of Culture Helps You Live Longer

By |2020-07-16T08:43:56+00:00July 16th, 2020|Natural Health|

There’s increasing interest in the health benefits of the arts, particularly in the United Kingdom where a doctor may hand you a prescription for a visit to a museum or art gallery instead of a drug.

Social prescribing, as it’s called, is said to improve both mental and physical health, and quality of life.

What surprised me is there’s now data to show that engaging in the arts also provides a dramatic boost to life expectancy.

Various scientists have offered up a number of theories to explain why engaging with the arts could help lengthen your life. Researchers have pointed to studies suggesting […]

Epigenetic Fountain of Youth Set to Extend Life Span by up to 50 Years

By |2020-07-09T15:28:28+00:00July 9th, 2020|Natural Health|

The lab mouse’s organs are failing. It lies hunched and motionless, just days from death. It has progeria, a disease of accelerated aging.

But the rodent is in for a surprise. Researchers give it an age-reversal cocktail, and before long, the mouse is active, energetic and full of life.

If you’re thinking this is too good to be true, that there must be a catch, you’re right…

A few days later the mouse is dead.


But even in the face of this setback, scientists believe the technology that gave this mouse a new lease on life—at least temporarily— will be developed and safely applied […]
