Optimal health is the foundation for slowing down the aging process and feeling and looking great at every age.
I have certainly learned from personal experiences within my own family that your health truly is your wealth. Without your health, nothing much else matters.
I get people calling and e-mailing me all the time asking for my advice on health and slowing down aging. I am not a doctor or a health practitioner of any kind, but I have learned a lot from personal experience.
One of the first things I tell people, is to never ever BLINDLY put your health in the hands of a doctor or the mainstream media. You must must must do your own research.
Just yesterday I was watching a commercial for Premarin, the cream that makes intercourse more comfortable for menopausal women. Sounds like a fantastic easy fix until you get to the possible side effects.
- Pelvic Pain
- Breast Pain
- Vaginal Bleeding
- and Increased Chances of getting Cancer of the uterus, strokes and blood clots.
Honestly I laughed out loud watching this commercial. The absurdity of it made me feel like I was watching a Saturday Night Live spoof.

The good news is that at least in this commercial you are being told the truth about the possible horrific side effects. Sadly this is not always the case when it comes to mainstream media.
When the national or local news reports on a health issue, they usually don’t tell you the whole story. Why not? The pharmaceutical industry makes up roughly 71% of ad revenues. They don’t want to “bite the hand that feeds them”.
What if the nightly news reported “It’s Flu Season, be sure to go out and get your flu shot”, which if you watch the news you know they do night after night every year. What if they also added ” Last year’s flu shot only had an 18% success rate and still contains the controversial preservative thimerasol, a known neuro-toxin. We also want to remind you that the U.S. Government pays out millions of dollars in compensation for injuries and deaths due to the flu shot each year.”
Whenever you are faced with a health decision, you must do some digging. Get several opinions from Doctors, Natureopaths, Chiropractors and Osteopathic Doctors also known as DO.
One of the first people I turn to is Dr. Mercola, an Osteopathic doctor who created the worlds #1 alternative health news website, Mercola.com. Osteopaths have very similar training to MD’s, they perform surgery and prescribe prescription drugs, but unlike MD’s who treat only the health issue, Osteopaths treat the whole person.
Mercola.com has up to date health information and exposes corporate, government and mas media hype that diverts the public away from what is truly best for health.
I have total trust in his work. I have read his website for years. I have heard him speak in person. His information is backed by research and science.
Most importantly you need to understand how we got into this “mainstream media” manipulation mess in the first place so that you can be on the look out.
Sharyl Attikisson, author, and former investigative reporter in the CBS Washington Bureau, has a fabulous Ted Talk that explains exactly what goes on when it comes to information in the mainstream media.
I urge you to watch the full 10 minute presentation. You will never ever look at the “news” the same again.
Be sure to check out SharylAttkisson.com for news that the mainstream media is not reporting on.
Knowledge is your best tool when it comes to slowing down the aging process.
