  1. Cheat death with D

    Vitamin D will help you to live longer

    Imagine a pill that can help you to cheat death -- one that's safe, inexpensive and widely available.

    The mainstream will tell you that pill's an aspirin, or maybe a statin. You and I know that's not true, because both of those drugs come with major risks and are proven to hurt far more often than they help.

    But there is a pill that really can add years to your life, even if you're not sick.

    It's simple, safe, inexpensive and highly effective.

    It's vitamin D, of course, proven to help with everything from bone and brain health to immune support, which is why new research confirms that the lower your levels, the higher your risk of a premature demise from any cause.

    And if your D levels drop below optimal levels -- to the levels most Americans have right now -- you're facing double the risk of an early death, according to the new study of 566,583 people from 14 countries tracked for nearly a decade.

    What's remarkable about the study isn't just the outcome. We've seen that before.

    But no matter how many times we've seen it, researchers and doctors claim we need more studies before they can recommend vitamin D supplements.

    Not this time.

    No, the researchers behind this one are urging people to take supplements of up to 4,000 IUs of vitamin D per day, which is right in line with my own recommendations of 2,000 IUs to 5,000 IUs per day, depending on diet, lifestyle and other factors.

    The goal here isn't to just pop a supplement and consider yourself done, but to make sure you raise your blood levels of D to the optimal zone. The new study calls for 30 nanograms per milliliter or more, and that's a good start when you consider that two-thirds of us fall short of even those levels.

    But personally, I think you should aim a little higher. Emerging science shows that you need at least 35 ng/ml for optimal health.

    A holistic doctor can check your levels to determine how much you need, help you decide the best way to get it, and then follow up to make sure the supplements are doing their job.

  2. Avoid HPV panic

    Don't give in to HPV panic

    The headlines almost seem like they've been written by the drug companies: Two-thirds of all Americans carry HPV, according to a new study.

    That's the virus that causes most cervical cancers as well as many head, neck and throat cancers. And, wouldn't you know it, Big Pharma just so happens to have a vaccine for that -- and since sales have been disappointing (to say the least), they're in dire need of something to help boost the bottom line.

    So you can bet they're hoping parents and grandparents will see the headlines and rush their little ones (especially girls) off to get poked with HPV shots.

    But there are three things you need to know that aren't getting as much attention as those panic-inducing items in the mainstream media.

    First, the study also finds that while two-thirds of Americans carry the HPV virus, very few actually have one of the strains known to cause cancer. In fact, fewer than 4 percent of those who carry HPV have a strain linked to cancer.

    That means 96 percent of those infected with HPV have no cancer risk at all due to the virus.

    Second, the vaccine doesn't offer full protection from all cancer-causing strains, may wear off after just a few years and comes with so many risks that HPV shots may be among the most dangerous vaccines ever invented.

    Girls have been known to pass out and even drop dead after getting vaccinated, and some have suffered a permanent and debilitating disorder called Guillain-Barré syndrome.

    Even parents who dutifully sign their kids up for every vaccine are rejecting this one -- which is why the drug industry has to resort to panic-inducing headlines to get them to even consider the shot.

    But before you even think about it, consider my third point: You already have something far more powerful than any vaccine when it comes to HPV.

    It's your own immune system.

    This isn't just a natural health talking point. Even the CDC admits that the human immune system clears HPV 90 percent of the time.

    If you want an even higher success rate, boost your immune system with the nutrients known to fight HPV. You'll find many of them in cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli and cabbage.

    Here's one more tip: Brush your teeth and clean your gums. Good oral hygiene can slash your risk of HPV infection, and you can read more about that in this free report from my House Calls archives.
