Beware this Hidden Condition that Shortens Life Expectancy for Millions

By |2020-06-04T12:46:04+00:00June 4th, 2020|Natural Health|

You may be one of an estimated three million Americans who suffer from a hidden health condition that can cause digestive problems, allergies and a host of autoimmune issues.

The latest research shows that this condition can not only cause illness, but also can shorten your life expectancy.

What’s worse, you might not even know you’re suffering, because this health problem can begin without a single symptom and doctors don’t routinely test for this.

The behind-the-scenes health problem shared by millions of unsuspecting Americans?

Celiac disease.

It’s the autoimmune reaction to gluten, which consists of certain proteins found in wheat, barley and rye, and in […]

New Study Finds Women’s Blood Vessels Age More Quickly

By |2020-05-28T11:39:49+00:00May 28th, 2020|Natural Health|

For many women approaching middle age, their biggest health concern is wrinkles and weight gain. But according to the latest research, what they really should worry about is their heart health.

Researchers from Smidt Heart Institute at Cedars-Sinai are pointing to first-of-its-kind research that suggests women’s blood vessels age far more quickly than men’s. As a result, they’re at greater risk of high blood pressure and heart disease.

This flies in the face of the stereotype that “men die young of heart attacks while women all live into their eighties.” It’s not so, and believing this may cost you your life. Here’s […]

What Your Age Says About the Medical Treatment You’ll Receive

By |2020-05-21T11:21:44+00:00May 21st, 2020|Natural Health|

Your doctor can start this medical approach early, even by the time you’ve turned 40. No, it’s not a medical treatment — it’s an attitude. An attitude among physicians that pigeonholes patients based on doctors’ expectations of what happens to the body at a certain age.

New York gerontologist Mark Lachs is disturbed by medical stereotyping, explaining that “treating patients based on their age means you can miss very significant, treatable conditions.”

Researchers point to another form of ageism operating at a doctor’s subconscious level, which some have dubbed left-digit bias. They say this ageism leads to decisions that can have life […]

New Breakthrough Could Help You Stay Strong in Later Life

By |2020-05-14T13:46:50+00:00May 14th, 2020|Natural Health|

As early as your thirties, you start to lose muscle mass. This condition, called sarcopenia, causes the loss of up to five percent of muscle mass every decade thereafter.

Exactly why muscle loss happens isn’t known. But the results of a breakthrough study could help you keep your muscles in good shape for a lot longer. In fact, the future of your muscle strength might hinge on triggering an enzyme called AMPK.

Your body is constantly making and breaking down mitochondria, the “power plants” of cells, to meet your cellular energy needs. This process of clearing away damaged or old mitochondria is […]

Can Eating Too Much Sugar Shorten Your Life?

By |2020-04-23T11:38:42+00:00April 23rd, 2020|Natural Health|

By now most people know that a diet high in sugar doesn’t do your health any good.

But the so-called “empty” calories of sugar aren’t really empty. They’re like little missiles that take aim at your organs.

The problem with sugar, researchers have now found, goes way past the possibility of making you prone to weight gain, high blood sugar and diabetes.

The latest studies show that even if you avoid diabetes and weight gain, sugar triggers dangerous shifts in your body that can wreak havoc on your health and steal years from your life.

How One Tiny Fish Can Help You Defy Aging

By |2020-04-16T11:11:29+00:00April 16th, 2020|Natural Health|

In the 1968 sci-fi movie, 2001: A Space Odyssey, the crew members are put in a state of suspended animation, lying inside a pod to preserve oxygen and life support supplies.

But using suspended animation to defy aging is not just science fiction.

Scientists now know that putting living cells and organs into a state of hibernation can effectively slow down biological aging and allow for a much longer lifespan.

New research reveals there might be a way to achieve a state of “physical hibernation” while still performing our normal daily activities—no space age pod necessary!

How? They’re turning to the secrets of a […]

Is the “King of Carotenoids” the Secret to Youthful Skin?

By |2020-04-09T12:06:55+00:00April 9th, 2020|Natural Health|

You are religious about sunscreen application. You slather on night cream. And you eat all the right foods. But did you know that the secret to youthful skin might actually be a tough-to-pronounce antioxidant?

Astaxanthin (pronounced asta-ZAN-thin) is the reason why both the skin of salmon and flamingos sport that lovely pink hue. And now there’s some scientific evidence that this potent carotenoid may help protect your skin from wrinkles and the cumulative damage that comes with age.

Let’s take a look at why scientists and skin care experts alike are touting it as the next anti-aging breakthrough…

Golf? How One of America’s Favorite Hobbies Can Add Years to Your Life

By |2020-04-02T11:57:45+00:00April 2nd, 2020|Natural Health|

Mark Twain is said to have described golf as “a good walk spoiled.” I don’t expect the 25 million Americans who play the game would agree with him.

The enjoyment that comes from teeing off with the driver, striding down the fairway, and focusing intently on a 30-foot putt (not to mention refreshments at the 19th hole) is also matched by some wonderful health benefits.

Perhaps the best of these benefits is a longer life. Let’s see what the science reveals about golf and longevity.

Golf Reduces Your Risk of Death

Evidence that golf can add years to your life comes from a brand-new […]

Staying in Rhythm Can Mean Longer Life

By |2020-03-26T12:32:51+00:00March 26th, 2020|Natural Health|

Every cell in your body maintains a daily rhythm, called a “circadian” rhythm. You’ve probably heard the phrase.

As you age, these rhythms can slowly slip out of sync, leading to a wide range of health problems that can harm your well-being and shorten your life.

Now, researchers are pointing to effective ways to keep these rhythms on track or at least slow down their loss of function.

Most exciting, if you preserve those rhythms successfully you may increase your life expectancy and stay healthier as you age. Let’s see what researchers are reporting from the latest studies.

One of the most important parts […]

Restoring the “Third Eye” May Hold the Secret to the Fountain of Youth

By |2020-03-19T11:38:55+00:00March 19th, 2020|Natural Health|

Imagine an anti-aging treatment with the ability to dramatically improve physical performance, boost bone density by 80 percent and lower overall mortality rate by 28 percent in people aged 70 to 90.

It’s hard to believe, I know, but research praised by an anti-aging lecturer at Stanford University showed these exact results. I got my hands on the studies that inspired his enthusiasm, and everything seems to check out.

The treatment is reportedly resulting in “unbelievable outcomes,” and entails nothing more than improving your “third eye.” What’s your third eye? Glad you asked…

The “third eye,” or “mind’s eye,” in Eastern spiritual traditions […]
