Is Suzanne Somers a doctor? No, she’s not. She’s an actress, an entertainer, an entrepreneur and an author. All you need to do is pick up a newspaper, watch a television show, or visit a website to see her being criticized for her books. After all, they say, “She’s not a doctor!”
What these bozos are leaving out however, is the simple fact that Suzanne is not making any medical claims. What she is doing, thankfully, is interviewing some of the top medical professionals in the world as well as sharing information she’s gleamed from the forefront of longevity and complementary medicine.
When she interviews someone like Dr. Russell Blaylock, a leading neurosurgeon with more than thirty years of experience and he is talking about the dangers of food additives, especially excitotoxins like MSG in soft drinks that we’re giving children, it is a medical doctor delivering the message.
When she talks with someone like Eric Braverman, another world-class doctor, it is he, not Suzanne, who is the source of the information.
Throughout her books, particularly “Breakthrough” my personal favorite, Ms. Somers delivers life saving ideas and preventative health information from the top independent medical experts of our time.
The one and only reason that she is attacked is because this information in the hands of masses, will greatly improve the health or our rapidly deteriorating population.
While this seems to you and me to be a good thing, it’s a huge threat to a pharmaceutical industry whose business model is to keep as many people as possible, taking as many drugs as possible. No, Suzanne Somers is not a doctor, but thankfully she’s a writer and she’s not afraid to step out and take the heat to ensure people hear the truth about maintaining their health and not succumbing debilitating disease.
However, don’t take Suzanne’s word for it, nor mine for that matter, find out for yourself. If you want to know more about ways to remain healthy, take responsibility for the state of your health and learn what you need to know to stay as healthy and vibrant as you possibly can. In my book, Don’t Let an Old Person Move Into Your Body, I devoted an entire chapter to this subject and in the back of the book as well as here on my Web site, I list contact information for some of the leading independent sources of health information.
By taking responsibility you’re putting your health back in your own hands where it belongs. By all means visit your doctor regularly, however expecting she or he to “fix” your problems without assistance from you is simply ludicrous.
It’s “game day” as I sit, waiting to start sending messages for my Amazon campaign launch for Don’t Let an Old Person Move Into Your Body. Since it’s also my birthday, I thought it appropriate to start today.

One could not help but notice the frailty of the, now 68 year old. Clearly his life and lifestyle had taken their toll on his physical health but the moment he stood at the keyboards, such a familiar site, he was that 28 year old performer once again.
The audience was transported back to a time when he shared the stage with the likes of George Harrison, John Lennon and Eric Clapton at Madison Square Garden’s Concert for Bangladesh in 1971.
The man playing music at the Sellersville theater, while a much smaller venue, was the same man who played the big rooms so many years ago.
How is this possible? How is it that, while the body of Leon Russell has aged and taken on physical ailments and limitations, the musician remains that young, vibrant singer songwriter of times past?
Passion is one of the key components to living a fulfilling life and Russell has as much passion for what he is doing as a man half his age. Clearly he is living his dream, whether it’s in front of 40,000 people at Madison Square Garden or 400 at the theater in rural Pennsylvania. He is doing something that matters to him and its’ apparent listening to his music.
He has passion, he has a dream and he’s living his life to the fullest. These are some of the keys to a living vibrantly as outlined in my new book, “Don’t Let an Old Person Move Into Your Body.”

If you ask aging adults which illness they fear most, Alzheimer’s disease is likely to be at the top of the list, and for good reason – this devastating neurological condition slowly destroys people’s ability to think while robbing them of their memory.
Alzheimer’s is the most common cause of dementia in those aged 65 or older, and current statistics indicate that this debilitating condition affects more than 15 million people worldwide.
With America’s rapidly aging population—an estimated 30% of the US population will be 65 or older by the year 2050—it is projected that 14 million people in the US alone will be affected by Alzheimer’s disease in the next few decades.
Having had experience with a family member with this dreaded illness, I can appreciate why it makes so many people concerned. While I believe there are precautions one can take like the aforementioned heavy metal testing and such, there are also some things you can do nutritionally to minimize the risks.
One of the most powerful brain nutrients I’ve found is Phatidylserine or “PS” for short. I first learned of this when, as I mentioned, I was doing research into Alzheimer’s for personal reasons.
There have been more than 60 human studies and 3,000 scientific papers confirming the results of an Italian study that first discovered its value in treating Alzhemier’s that found it not only prevented senile dementia and Alzhemier’s but reversed the symptoms.
According to Dr. James Balch, author of Prescription for Nutritional Healing, “As long as you have plenty of PS in your bloodstream, your body automatically builds billions of vibrant, healthy new brain cells at any age.” You can learn more about this powerful nutrient in our Web site’s resource section.
