4 Myths about Aging

By |2019-04-05T06:07:59+00:00April 4th, 2019|Natural Health|

Not long ago, most folks – including scientists – believed that our bodies simply wear out as we age. And that does seem to be sort of a common sense way of looking at it. So most of us resigned ourselves to the march of time, which meant achy joints, fragile bones, withering muscles, failing eyesight, wrinkled skin and unreliable memory.

But before you start wallowing in this defeatist mentality, take a look at some inspiring new research that proves you can stem the tide of physical aging.

Below we’ll debunk four common myths about how the body ages …

#1 Myth: You […]

Beyond Stem Cells: Is There an Anti-Aging Serum in the Works?

By |2019-04-05T06:03:28+00:00April 1st, 2019|Natural Health|

I was sitting in the audience as Sheldon Jordan, MD, told of his amazing recovery from a terrible accident, all thanks to a revolutionary new treatment that may be the most exciting breakthrough I’ve heard of in years. Here’s Dr. Sheldon in his own words:

“Four weeks ago I was involved in a very severe motorcycle accident where I almost died. I had eleven rib fractures. I suffered a fractured dislocation of my ankle, and my foot was just hanging like loose skin. I also had a compound fracture of my clavicle, lacerated my liver, kidney and adrenal gland and lost […]

This Leaf Could Hold the Key to Slowing the Aging Process

In many of the programs or protocols for adding years to your life, a certain biological activity must occur if the plan is actually going to work.

This applies whether it’s a life-extending nutrient, herb or drug that’s being tested, or whether the treatment involves genetic manipulation. It’s also a key reason why intermittent fasting and exercise contribute to a healthier and longer life.

The biological activity is called autophagy. This means “self-eating” and refers to a process wherein the body feeds on its own “garbage” – dead or dying cells, cellular debris.

In an exciting new development, scientists have found for the […]

How Aging and Testosterone Loss Go Hand in Hand – Or Don’t

By |2019-03-14T13:20:10+00:00March 14th, 2019|Natural Health|

Healthy testosterone levels are critical for men’s general health, disease risk, body composition, sexual function, and the list goes on. This important steroid hormone is produced in men’s testicles, and in smaller amounts, women’s ovaries.

Keeping testosterone levels healthy is especially important as men age. It’s well-known that low “T” is associated with a number of unhealthy medical conditions, e.g. diabetes and Alzheimer’s.

But there seem to be some misconceptions about what causes testosterone decline. To that point, Australian scientists examined the issue in a 2011 study.1

Scientists now say a decline in testosterone levels as men age is likely the result – […]

Latest Stem Cell Findings are Mind-Blowing

By |2019-02-28T12:59:00+00:00February 28th, 2019|Natural Health|

The potential for using stem cells to repair every organ in your body is truly mind-blowing. These microscopic wonder-cells hold the key to rejuvenating the body. Within our lifetimes – in fact, within a few years – we’re going to see them fight aging and used to treat a stunning list of diseases.

But research into how to best use these cells is complicated. There’s still more work to be done. And while there have been impressive breakthroughs, there are important cautions you need to know before you rush to a stem cell clinic to get your youth back.

Here’s what I […]

Restore Youthfulness by Blitzing Zombie Cells

By |2019-02-21T16:45:28+00:00February 21st, 2019|Natural Health|

The dream of a long, healthy and energetic lifespan has come one step closer thanks to breakthrough research.

The promising anti-aging strategy is to clear old, damaged cells from the body. These are called senescent cells but I think of them as “zombie” cells. They build up in our tissues, promote chronic inflammation and go hand in hand with the so-called diseases of aging.

Like the creatures in those popular horror movies, legions of zombie cells take over the body and kill off healthy tissue – and eventually us.

Scientists have been mystified by the exact role of the immune system in this […]

Shocking Discovery: Holocaust Survivors have Longer Life Expectancy. Why?

By |2019-02-14T15:27:32+00:00February 14th, 2019|Lifestyle|

People who survived the Holocaust experienced higher levels of physical and mental illness in their later lives.

This is hardly surprising. They lived under horrendous conditions, with inadequate clothing and shelter, prolonged malnutrition, brutal overwork, and “chronic stress” – a phrase that hardly seems adequate to the experience. On top of that, most of them saw their families murdered.

These traumas took their toll and led to poorer health outcomes decades after they returned to normal society.

But in the first analysis of its kind ever done, researchers made an unexpected discovery about survivors: They lived longer, on average, than the rest of […]

Tonight You Can Drink from the Fountain of Youth

By |2019-02-07T06:28:10+00:00February 7th, 2019|Natural Health|

Poor Ponce de Leon, the Spanish explorer, never found the fountain of youth, but his quest turned out to be a durable legend. Who wouldn’t want an easy way to stay young?

Well, researchers at the University of California Berkeley say their research demonstrates a clear way to make that happen. And it’s easy to do.

Their answer: Get a good night’s sleep every night. Without sleeping pills. They call it “the very center” of an effective anti-aging program.

Sleep is so important that a popular health writer, Bill Sardi, recently named “not getting enough sleep” as one of the 10 biggest health […]

Why Do Presidents Tend to Live a Long Time?

By |2019-02-01T03:45:47+00:00January 31st, 2019|Lifestyle|

I bet you’ve seen those photos documenting the changes that occur in presidents during their stressful tenures. After a year or two, they are already showing signs of wear and tear; wrinkles line their faces and streaks of gray start to proliferate in their hair.

This observation led Dr. Michael Roizen, of fame, to deduce that presidents age twice as fast as the rest of us when they’re in office. He attributed it to “unrequited stress.”

But here’s the thing: physical appearance shouldn’t be confused with accelerated aging.

Never mind the gray hairs — according to a paper1 published in the Journal […]
