Why Getting Older Isn’t The Same as Feeling Older

Sometimes people come into my practice and complain about getting older.

Who can blame them? They experience less energy, more aches and pains and lower quality of life.

But I often tell them that it isn’t getting older that’s the problem. Why? Because the alternative to getting older is dying. What they really want is to stop feeling older.

There are a variety of ways to accomplish this. Eating well, exercising and doing things you enjoy all help. And there are also herbal medicines that can make a profound difference.

For example, Chinese Medicine includes many herbs that support long, healthy life. There are herbs to support long life in general. There are also herbs specifically for men and for women. These herbs help keep someone vital and active in middle age and beyond.

Some of the more well-known anti-aging herbs include ginseng, astragalus and reishi. In addition, there are more specialized herbs that increase libido and energy. I will be giving a one-hour talk in Reno on March 20, 2014 about some rare herbs that increase a man’s quality of life. For more information, click here.

Fish Oils Heal an Injured Brain

Fish oil is a potent healer for many reasons.

For example, it is a very good anti-inflammatory. It also supports healthy cell membranes. In addition, is supports a healthy brain.

But did you know that it also can heal brain damage?

This is an inspirational story. A young man was hit by a car. He suffered serious injuries, including brain damage. Even when his body started healing, he was still in a coma.

The doctors told his parents he would never live. They said to give up on him. But they never did.

Instead, they tried unconventional therapies. One of these was high doses of omega-3 fatty acids (found in fish oil). After a few weeks, the boy was awake and talking. His parents credit fish oil with a large part of the healing.

Watch For This Toxin In Your Organic Food

Carrageenan is a food additive that acts as a thickening agent.

But just because it is approved doesn’t mean it’s safe. In fact, some studies show it may cause colitis or cancer. You’d think that would warrant caution.

But the FDA allows this chemical to be added to products, including organic foods. I don’t know about you, but this seems really wrong to me.

If you want to know more about this potential danger, I recommend looking at this article. You’ll find it here.

All the best to you for your health and happiness,
