Magnesium Deficiency – Normal Sign of Aging?

Some of the most frequent complaints I hear from my patients, especially those older than 50, involves muscle cramps and spasms, notably those leg zingers that make them jump out of bed in the middle of the night; trouble sleeping; and daytime stiffness or pain in their muscles.  Most of my patients laugh these symptoms off as just “getting old,” but they’re surprised when I tell them these are more likely symptoms of a magnesium deficiency, which can easily be corrected.  Read on and see if you have any of the common symptoms of low magnesium and what I recommend.

Your Body Needs Many Different Antioxidants for Optimum Health

I see patients all the time who are confused about antioxidants. Often they think if they take vitamin C, they’ve got their bases covered. This just isn’t the case. To understand why, let’s take a deeper look at how your body works. When you eat food, the process your body uses to convert it to energy creates byproducts called free radicals. These free radicals are reactive molecules. When they encounter a healthy cell, they damage it and also create more free radicals. This process happens all through your body both in water-based tissues and in fat-based tissues. Your body uses antioxidants to clean up […]

Diabetes, Celiac Disease and Tinnitus – The Vitamin B12 Link

Research has shown that tinnitus can be caused by a vitamin B12 deficiency.  B12 deficiency is also a common complication in diabetes and celiac disease as they both share the inability to absorb B12 properly.  People who have celiac disease and type II diabetes also have higher rates of nerve-damage related conditions like tinnitus.  In addition, the older you get, the more at risk you may be for developing both a B12 deficiency and tinnitus.  Why? As you get older, you lose a great deal of your ability to absorb B12 from your food through your intestine. Recent research has […]

Make Your Own Anti-Aging Serum at Home

Late night infomercials are full of different doctors selling their anti-aging skin serums and formulas.  Although they may work great, they’re often too expensive for the average person to buy every month.  In addition, there’s something else about these formulas they don’t tell you – the potency of the vitamins in them can be greatly diminished by the time you receive them.  But you can get a high potency anti-aging skin treatment every week for far less cost by making your own simple formula at home.  Let me show you how… This Simple Formula Fades Age Spots, Decreases Wrinkles Vitamin […]

Speed Up Your Mental Performance

Many of my older patients have told me that if they had to pick a condition to get as they got older, it would be something other than one that affected their brain and mental performance.  After all, who you are now, who you were in your past, your life’s memories are all stored in your brain.  If you started to develop impairment of your cognitive function, who you are may be decreased, or completely lost, to you.  That’s why I tell my patients to do everything possible to keep their brain function healthy and optimize their mental performance.  These […]

Natural Steps To Liver Health

When I suspected liver malfunction in one of my patients recently, he protested. He assumed that his liver was fine since he didn’t drink large amounts of alcohol. His assumption was a common one. Whenever I mention liver problems, most of my patients think of cirrhosis (associated with excessive alcohol consumption) or hepatitis, a viral disease with particular risk factors. They assume there’s not much else to worry about when it comes to liver health. Perhaps it’s an assumption you’ve made yourself. But just because you are not at risk for cirrhosis or hepatitis, that doesn’t mean you’re doing all […]

Shoulder & Back Pain? Check Your Gallbladder!

Every now and then one of my patients will call me complaining of a kind of strange, uncomfortable pain in their right neck and shoulder blade area. Most often, they also don’t feel well either – a little nauseated, maybe a little stomach pain and don’t feel much like eating.  They wonder if they’ve gotten some kind of flu bug.   They’re often shocked when I tell them that it could be their gallbladder acting up and/or they may be passing gallstones! If this sounds like you sometimes, here’s what you should know about gallstones and gallbladder problems. Gallstones or Muscle […]
