18 Years of Anti-Aging Research

This article is focused on just one supplement, carnosine.

Carnosine has been around for a long time. Since its introduction people have looked to other things for anti-aging benefits. As a result, the focus has shifted away from this substance.

But is that a good thing? Carnosine has multiple benefits to support a long, healthy life. They include:

  • Benefitting your heart and circulation.

  • Protecting against cancer.

  • Improving your brain and nervous system.

  • It’s an antioxidant.

  • It helps remove heavy metals.

  • It stops sticky sludge from forming in your cells.

  • It helps rejuvenate cells.

Wow. That’s a lot of benefit.

Your Body’s Natural State is Health, Not Disease

One of the problems with modern medicine is its focus on disease.

Does that sound funny to you? After all, what else would a doctor focus on?

Is there some conspiracy in medicine to keep us sick? Not likely. It is more likely that people are most motivated to see a doctor when they don’t feel well. So of course doctors focus on disease.

The problem is that disease only happens when your body is out of balance. And and being out of balance starts with your lifestyle.

That means if you want to avoid the pain and bother of going to the doctor, you have to address imbalance before it happens. Or at least you want to address it when it is very small.

So the best choice is avoiding disease in the first place. That’s the role of an alternative medicine doctor. We help you figure out the very best ways to stop disease before it takes hold. By addressing smaller symptoms – known as “pre-clinical” – you can head of problems before they become big.

And since 80 to 90 percent of all disease is preventable, this is a very cost-effective way to go. Forget the magic pill. Stop disease before it happens.

Al Sears
Addicted to Nature?

Have you heard of exorphins?

I hadn’t either. But Dr. Al Sears has information you should know about them.

Exorphins is a name coined for morphine-like substances we eat. And as you know, morphine is highly addictive. Besides that, exorphins can make you weak, tired and hungry. They also pack on pounds.

Which foods have them? Grains and cows milk. No wonder so many “comfort foods” contain these ingredients. Opiates like morphine and exorphins reduce pain sensations. They also stimulate your pleasure response. It’s like a momentary reward to your brain.

Of course most comfort foods like these come with a hidden cost. The immediate “reward” is followed by long term consequences. These include increased risk of diabetes, heart disease and inflammation. All diseases that include pain and discomfort. Ironic, no?

The Toxins That Threaten Our Brains

Brain problems are on the rise.

This is showing up especially in children. These problems include:

  • Lower IQ

  • ADD and ADHD

  • Autism

Much of this can be traced to toxins in the environment and in food. But don’t take my word for it. This is the view of Harvard researchers and a dean for global health at Mount Sinai School of Medicine.

This makes sense. In the last 40 years more than 20,000 new chemicals are on the market. Of these, only 5 have been removed.

This article has a list of the 12 biggest offenders. Learn more about how to avoid them in this article.
