Like I always say, we all get two less-than-desirable options: get old or die young. I’m working on a device to put your consciousness into a young body, but so far it isn’t working that great; for now, we’re stuck with those two choices.

Since you’re reading this, it looks like you’ve probably chosen the ‘get old’ option. Our bodies give us the ability to keep interacting with universe and, like all machinery, need a little periodic maintenance. The more mileage they accumulate, the more frequent and more intensive the maintenance required will be.

At, we’re interested in helping you live a longer and better life, with extra emphasis on the “better” part. Of course, we see a lot of variety in this required maintenance, but some things hold true for just about everyone.

Glutathione: I am a fan of a continuous detox program in this world full of unpronounceable chemicals in our food and air. I have written frequently about glutathione and will continue to do so until it is common knowledge that we need to keep our glutathione levels up. Glutathione is the body’s first and best defense against toxins. The probability of resistance to disease and early death are directly linked to glutathione levels. Excellent studies find that toxins like lead and mercury don’t hurt you until the glutathione is depleted.

The best way I know to keep glutathione levels up is a combination of LifeWave Glutathione Patches to help stimulate your body’s production of glutathione and Apex Energetics Glutathione Recycler to provide both raw materials for making glutathione and herbs to help your body reuse spent glutathione. We have been using this combination for several years and have gotten excellent feedback.

Fish Oil: Next is keeping your body’s inflammation level at a lower level using essential fatty acids. Countless studies have documented the wonderful effects of supplementing with essential fatty acids. The best and cheapest source of these essential fatty acids (EPA and DHA) is fish oil. We have a number of excellent sources for fish oil, but tend to default to Nordic Naturals in our house. If you find yourself burping fish oil after taking your supplements, you are probably taking cheap supplements. There is no shortcut here. Your body will thank you for taking quality supplements, just like your car thanks you for using quality gas and oil.

Vitamin D: We do a lot of blood testing, and it is rare to see adequate levels of Vitamin D. For most people, we recommend 50,000 IUs of Vitamin D3 once a week. Somehow, the large dose with six days off seems to be more effective than taking moderate doses daily. We quote Dr. Joe Prendergast, who has as much experience with Vitamin D as anyone. You can learn more about Dr. Prendergast’s take on Vitamin D on YouTube.

To make taking your Vitamin D easy, we carry Thorne Research D3 25,000, so you only need to take two capsules once per week.

NOTE: Remember, Vitamin D is really a hormone.

These simple steps, along with appropriate changes in diet and exercise, will help most people age much more slowly.
