Your Grandma Knew This Hollywood Trick

Some Hollywood actresses never seem to age. Most people assume these women spend thousands of dollars on plastic surgery and injections to keep themselves looking so youthful. And some certainly do… But not all of them. One actress who’s vowed to stay far away from the plastic surgeon’s scalpel is Salma Hayek. And looking at […]

My Must-Try Valentine’s Day Love-Booster

Did you get roses from your sweetheart today? I hope so! They’re a timeless way to say “I love you” on Valentine’s Day. Even the ancient Greeks and Romans revered this flower. Its scent is so sensual the Romans had a tradition of scattering rose petals on the bridal bed. They knew that roses were […]

Bye-Bye, Eye Bags!

When I ask my women patients to tell me the one thing that bothers them most about their appearance, a lot of them point to the skin under their eyes. They think the puffiness and saggy skin makes them look run-down and tired… and older than they feel. Most of them have tried every under-eye […]

Jungle Berry Beats Vitamin C Tabs

When I visited the Ashaninka Indians in Peru, I noticed they would pick berries from shrubs that grew along the flooded banks of the Amazon and use them as fish bait. Once they’d caught their dinner, they’d gather more of the yellow-red berries and bring them back to camp. They ate them fresh off the […]

To Banish Blemishes, Do This

I’ve treated enough female patients over the years to know that having smooth, blemish-free skin is important to all women — whether they’re 16 or 46. But dermatologists take a one-size-fits-all approach to treating skin problems like acne. They prescribe antibiotics, birth control pills or drugs. Here’s why that doesn’t work… The acne you get […]

Little Purple Flower Flips Anti-Aging Switch

One of the things I love most about medicinal herbs is that they heal the whole body. Take Chinese skullcap, for example. You’d be hard-pressed to find a Western doctor who’s even heard of it! But Traditional Chinese Medicine has used this one herb for more than 2,000 years to The root of Chinese skullcap […]

Who Is The Weaker Sex?

When it comes to muscle strength, men are born with an advantage. Both men and women lose muscle as they age, but it can become more severe in women. Women have come to accept that there’s nothing they can do when their strength decreases as they get older. But as an anti-aging doctor, I can […]

The New Superfruit

On one of my trips to Jamaica, I saw a beautiful cactus with bright red fruit growing on top. The natives called this spiny shrub the “tuna plant.” I’ve also heard the fruit called “Indian figs.” In the U.S. we call this plant the prickly pear cactus (Opuntia ficus-indica) or the nopales cactus. It is well-known throughout […]

The Beauty Side Effects OF Niacin

I’m always prescribing niacin (vitamin B3) to my patients. It’s an amazing heart health nutrient. It could even put the billion-dollar statin industry out of business, if more doctors knew how to prescribe it. Unfortunately, most doctors have no idea of the power of vitamins. But I’ve tested niacin myself in thousands of patients. Their […]

Supplements That Save Lives And Bucks

I’m sure I don’t have to tell you about the high cost of medical care these days. The fact is that as costs continue to skyrocket, more and more Americans are driven into bankruptcy, because they cannot pay their medical bills. Too often, they even lose their homes. You may have even lost a neighbor […]

Beauty May Only Be Skin Deep, But…

Your beauty is a reflection of the health of what lies underneath your skin. Until now, you could only reach that far by going to a dermatologist and getting injections. These pierce the outer layer of skin called the epidermis. An injection was necessary because it had to get to what lies underneath the surface […]

Boost Your Body’s Stem Cell Regeneration

Your body holds the key to preventing — and even curing — almost every disease known to modern medicine. The problem is that despite scientific advances, it will be decades before mainstream medicine knows how to use it. I’m talking about triggering the power of your body’s own stem cells. Most mainstream doctors will tell […]

I Can See Clearly Now…

Most doctors these days will tell you that eating oily fish can prevent you from going blind in later years. They’re on the right track, but as usual they’ve ended up with the wrong conclusion. It is true that the omega-3 fatty acids found in oily fish, like tuna, salmon and sardines, lower the risk […]

Beat The “Energy Crisis” With IV Laser Blood Therapy

As you age, you lose energy. Everyone feels that, including you. But knowing where that energy comes from, and how to replace it, means you don’t have to suffer like everyone else does. If you accept the idea that you can get older and still feel alert and energetic, a whole new world opens up […]

Get a Grip On Aging

If you can jump to your feet after reading this and give someone a strong and energetic handshake, I’ve got good news for you. It means you’re probably going to live a healthy life for many years to come. But if your hands are so weak that you can’t open a jelly jar… or a […]

4 Steps To Healthy Makeup

Some of those “natural” labels don’t always mean what you think they do – and some of them may be compromising your health. It’s called “greenwashing.” That’s when sellers make false claims about how natural their products are. And greenwashing is everywhere. A study just released this month by marketing firm TerraChoice looked at more […]

Overlooked Nutrient Zaps Gum Disease

You may be using CoQ10 already but not getting all its benefits… It’s a potent antioxidant and the fuel source that feeds your high-energy organs like your heart, eyes and brain. CoQ10’s real-life benefits are endless, especially as you age. And even though the anti-aging impact of CoQ10 on another part of your body has […]

A Therapy That Rebuilds Your Defenses FAST

In ancient times, our ancestors had pure sources of the nutrients they needed to thrive. But they were limited in terms of how much they could get of any particular one. Organ meat gives you a wealth of nutrients, including protein, CoQ10, and a host of vitamins. But you can’t get really high doses of […]

Restore Youthful Moisture Fast

As an anti-aging doctor, I don’t usually have to handle emergencies. But every now and then I get a frantic call from a woman getting ready for a big event. Thankfully, it’s not a medical emergency. Sometimes it’s a family wedding. Sometimes it’s a high school reunion. Whatever it is, the pressure is on for […]

Four Things Women Need

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. […]

New “Vampire” Therapy Turns Back The Years

I’ve seen a lot of cosmetic therapies come and go over the years. Some work well enough.  But others cause more damage than benefits. You just have to look at some aging Hollywood actresses to see the pitfalls of too much plastic surgery. But right now, I’m working on a cosmetic anti-aging therapy like nothing […]

Bright New Skin In Just Days

Recently I’ve noticed that many of my patients are suffering from what I call “sick skin.”  Their complexion looks dull and tired. It’s lost that glow we all associate with youth and good health. Sick skin comes from living in a modern world full of thousands of man-made chemicals. Those toxins seep into the deepest […]

Unique Natural Healing For Winter Skin

Winter wind and cold temperatures suck the moisture right out of your skin. And even though I’m in Africa, where the weather is moderate, winter in the U.S. has seen some low temperatures already. Even where my office is in the south, we get used to humidity, but wintertime weather changes can leave you with […]

Puffy Eyes and Baggy Eyes: What’s the Difference?

I thought I’d heard it all. Then one of my patients told me she’s been smearing Preparation H under her eyes. She was desperate to get rid of the under-eye bags and puffiness. She looked like she hadn’t slept in a week. And that sagging, bloated skin added years to her face. But using hemorrhoid […]
