  1. The UNEXPECTED key to a BETTER night of sleep

    Some people think I’m downright NUTS for this…

    But I happen to believe that NOTHING feels better than a late-evening walk in the hills under the full moon when the temperatures are right around freezing.

    And if there’s a fresh layer of snow on the ground, so much the better!

    Yes, friend, we’re heading into MY time of the year.

    It’s not just being outside on a chilly evening that I love. It’s what happens next – because I sleep like a baby after those cool nighttime walks.

    Try it sometime. You’ll thank me later!

    But if you’re not exactly the cold-weather type… if you’d rather get your sleep without the chills… then I’ve got another option backed by new research.

    It’s NOT about where you walk, or how COLD it is.

    It’s what you eat!

    These foods will help you sleep better

    What we eat has a direct effect on how we sleep.

    Chocolate, for example, contains a little caffeine – in some cases just enough to keep you awake if you eat it before bed. It’s also got theobromine, a stimulant that can increase heart rate and interfere with sleep.

    And starches may not stop you from falling asleep, but can lead to restless sleep and even nightmares… so definitely pass on the bread before bed (honestly, that’s a good rule for the rest of the day, too).

    But some foods can have the OPPOSITE effect.

    They can help you turn out the mental lights… shut down gently… and get the rest you need.

    And that’s where the latest research comes into focus.

    It finds that a very special class of fiber can do for you what those chilly evening walks do for me.

    They can help you sleep!

    They’re called prebiotics, or fiber that’s not just good for digestion but also can help “feed” the healthy probiotic bacteria in your gut.

    Those good bugs play dozens of roles in digestion, nutrition and more. But the one that matters right now is this: They help regulate stress and stress hormones.

    When those hormones spike, you can struggle to sleep.

    But when you have an army of microbial soldiers working to keep things in order and balance out hormones, you can get your rest without a care in the world.

    In a new study on rats, critters given probiotics before sleep had both a BETTER stress response and BETTER sleep as a result.

    Don’t dismiss this because it’s rats; other studies have found a link between increased dietary fiber and better sleep – so this is just one more piece of evidence.

    Just about all fiber from fruit and vegetable sources are healthy, but the ones that also work best as probiotics include asparagus, garlic, chicory, onions, bananas, peas and beans.

    Search Google for a more complete list.

  2. The SECRET DISEASE that strikes HALF of all seniors

    Call it America’s TRUE silent killer – a devastating collection of risk factors that gets NO attention at all from the mainstream.

    Probably because they don’t have a DRUG to sell you for it!

    Yep, as far as the mainstream’s concerned a disease has to be like a theme park ride. If there’s no gift shop in the end… no chance to make money off it… they won’t even mention it.

    So I will.

    It’s time to put metabolic syndrome front and center – because a shocking new report reveals just how quickly it’s spread across the nation.

    But because they DON’T talk about it… that means you WON’T know when you have it!

    And that’s why I’m going to give you everything you need to recognize the warning signs and take quick action to reverse the risks.

    How to STOP metabolic syndrome cold

    The new study finds that more than a third of Americans overall are battling metabolic syndrome, which is typically marked by some combination of weight gain, belly fat and rising blood sugar, blood pressure and cholesterol levels.

    But it’s even worse for seniors.

    The same study finds HALF of all Americans over 60 have the warning signs of metabolic syndrome – and that means they’re ALL at risk for something much, much worse, including:

    • Diabetes
    • Heart disease
    • Heart attack
    • Stroke
    • Death

    It’s often easy enough to COMPLETELY reverse metabolic syndrome.

    It just takes some discipline.

    Like the diabetes that it often leads to, much of metabolic syndrome is caused by sugars – either directly, with sugar itself, or indirectly by eating the carbs that raise sugar in the blood.

    Quit the carbs, or at least reduce them dramatically, and every core symptom of metabolic syndrome will come under control.

    You’ll lose weight – including fat from your waistline – and get quick control over your blood sugar. As you lose weight, your BP will drop… and believe it or not, even with more fat in the diet your cholesterol will normalize, too.

    I recommend a paleo diet, but if that’s too strict just focus on cutting out the carbs and eliminated processed foods for starters.

    But here’s the cold truth: You can do everything RIGHT… and still end up facing metabolic syndrome.

    Because this condition isn’t always a matter of what you eat, how much you move or anything else the mainstream will claim.

    It could be caused by a SECRET INFECTION!

    A Japanese study found that H. pylori – the same bacteria behind ulcers and other problems – can also lead directly to metabolic syndrome.

    Unless you attack the germ, you’re just NOT going to shake those metabolic struggles (not to mention the dozens of other hidden problems caused by the bacteria).

    Most mainstream insurance covers H. pylori testing; if you have the bacteria 1 gram of mastic gum daily for two weeks can often wipe it out.

    Often… but not always.

    To REALLY make sure it’s gone, I typically recommend a combo approach of supplements including Gastromend (which has mastic gum along with DFGL licorice and zinc carnosine), a biofilm supplement called Interphase Plus and a

    well researched probiotic yeast called Saccharomyces boulardii.

    For best results, work closely with a doctor who practices integrative of functional medicine who can test you for this bacteria, work with you to fight it and then test again to ensure it’s gone.

  3. DON’T sign up for back surgery yet!

    Nothing puts a damper on the day quite like back pain flaring up. You’re not going to the beach anymore. You’re not even going to the mailbox. You’re going to bed! And even there, you end up twisting… turning… and propping up the pillows to find that just-right angle where you don’t hurt quite so much. Yeah, I’ve been there...
