Prolon: The Fasting Mimicking Diet

Mar 11 | 2018

Fasting has pervaded cultures for millennia. Why? Well, it was not some sort of cruel and unusual punishment inflicted upon the masses by a shaman. And although its integration and practice were deeply tied to religion, likely it was by virtue of its salubrious benefits that fasting “stuck.” People just felt better when they fasted. And there are reasons for this. Firstly, in the fasted state, bec...

How Old are You, Really?

Sep 22 | 2017

Mainstream medicine is very short sighted. Historically, doctors have been taught to wait until disease arises and then hurriedly treat it. Think about heart attack victims. I bet you know someone who has had a heart attack? Do you think their arteries became clogged overnight? Of course not.  He or she had risk factors, identifiable risk factors for coronary artery disease that could have been te...

Aug 15 | 2017

It’s me again, Dr. Osborn. Let me tell you about a cool event that was held on May 20, 2017.

Did you know that the vast majority of diseases that kill us dead are, to a great degree, the product of metabol...

An All-Too-Common Observation

Jan 14 | 2017

I’m unsure as to whether or not it’s a manifestation of laziness or entitlement or maybe a little of both. After all, the two often coexist. I’ll let you decide. HEALTH TAKES WORK. Why is it that patients ask me if they “have to work out” if engaging me as their physician? Hmm… Do I have some sort of magic elixir that will remedy their problems sans effort on their behalf? No! Sure, metformin and...

I’ll Be Learning To Operate ‘til the Day I Retire

Sep 17 | 2015

  My son Jack just started driving.  I gave him my 2007 Jeep Wrangler having removed the lift kit to lower its center of gravity.  Anyone growing up in the 80’s will tell you that Jeeps were vilified in the media.  Right or wrong, the notion that they “rolled over easily” left its scars.  Aside from spending long hours in the passenger seat rendering instruction to my son and subjecting him to the...

What is the best way to stop diseases such as Alzheimer’s?

May 25 | 2015

So let me ask you a question. What is the best primary modality to thwart the development and progression of neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s dementia? Well, if you missed my blurb on The Today Show last Friday, allow me to fill you in: Exercise. Surprise, surprise.  What if I told that strength training is predominantly a mental activity? Just think about it (no pun intended). What...
