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 […]
You have a powerful “healing factor” flowing through your blood right now. It’s virtually unknown to mainstream medicine, and it’s never been offered to you by any doctor. Yet this natural substance is so potent, it has the potential to rebuild aching joints, and make your face and skin look 15 years younger. It’s a […]
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 […]
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 […]
A sleepless night can add years to your face. Your mirror gives away just how bad your night was. You see dark circles, hollow eyes, and sunken cheeks. Your skin sags. Yesterday’s fine lines are today’s deep wrinkles. For many years science has been trying to explain why “beauty rest” is so important. But the […]
You already know that your telomeres are like a ticking biological clock. Each time your cells divide, a tiny bit of each telomere gets used up. Over time, these telomeres get shorter and shorter until your DNA can no longer make correct copies, and that cell stops working. This process happens slowly, and it makes […]
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 […]
This morning I went out and did a series of sprints. Most mornings I do PACE Express. I love PACE Express because you can keep modifying it. I do a piece of one workout and then another piece from another workout to keep it progressive. In the new building we’ve moved into we’re going to […]
In the dry, hot environment of the Arabian Desert, the most-used natural product to heal skin isn’t water, or even aloe. It’s honey.1 Honey, it turns out, is a completely under-the-radar skin miracle. Honey, milk and oatmeal mixtures were also commonly used as facial beauty scrubs in ancient Egypt. In Europe and western Asia they […]
Every hour of the day, your cells are under attack. Normally, this is OK because your cells have a built-in DNA repair system that fixes any damage. But when your cells are undernourished, they can lose the ability to repair themselves. And that’s bad news. Part of the reason for the explosion of cancer in […]
You rub hand sanitizer on, and it feels all cold and tingly. You think that tingle is killing off the germs on your hands. But what you’re really feeling is all the alcohol and chemicals absorbing into your skin – and drying it out. The truth is, hand sanitizers don’t do what they’re intended to […]
Although you’re getting older, you don’t have to accept all the negative effects of aging. Anti-aging is rightfully a hot topic among the health-conscious. But there has been a lot of bad information. Most people know very little about what really happens as you age that you can change. Today we’re going to test your […]
Honey reminds me of romance. I call my dearest friends honey when I want to remind them how sweet they are to me. But I also use honey for healing.

Scent is a powerful thing. It can lift your mood, calm you down and help you focus – depending on the particular fragrance. That’s because your “sense of smell” is located in your brain. It’s closely attached to your memory and can influence your mood and thoughts. What’s more is scent has the potential to […]

I’m still in Africa, but from what my staff tells me, you really liked hearing about my gorilla trek in the letter Jackie Silver forwarded you last week. So I wanted to send you the next piece I wrote about my adventures in Africa.
It almost made me cry first thing in the morning… I opened my daily Doctor’s House Call advisory from Dr. Sears and started reading about his latest adventure in Africa. He went on a gorilla trek and had such a profound face-to-face experience that tears were welling up in my eyes.
f you’re already in a relationship or you’re looking for your “soul mate,” you can only make things better for both of you if you’re happy within yourself, not dependent on someone else to “make” you happy. In fact, studies show that happily married couples live longer, healthier lives than single people. So, how can […]
With just a few more weeks left in 2011, many people begin to think about their New Year’s Resolutions. Biting off more than you can chew with a long list of resolutions is not only counterproductive, but can also leave you stressed.

Barbie doll, born Barbara Millicent Roberts, and I are the same age — we’re both over 50 — and we both look better than ever. In fact, I’d even say we’re Aging Backwards.

Do you consider yourself to be a perfectionist? I must admit, I have a bit of a perfectionist streak in me. It’s something I’m learning to resist. In fact, Dr. Mollie Marti, founder of BestLifeDesign.com, suggested that I “strive for excellence, not perfection.” I let that sink in and realized we don’t have to be […]
I just read a study that proves how dangerous those drugs that are labeled “HRT” are. I call them drugs because they’re not real hormones. Hormones have to be made in your body, and these are synthetically created. I can’t help but get mad at this. I’m so tired of women being in this unnecessary […]
It shocks people to find out that I don’t use anti-bacterial soaps or hand sanitizers. But it shouldn’t… because these products don’t work. Advertisers almost make it seems reasonable that you should use something to “sanitize” your hands from all the “harmful” bacteria. In fact, most people firmly believe that anti-bacterial soaps are better for […]
