  1. 2 pronged arthritis relief

    It's bad enough when mainstream doctors are ignorant about natural remedies.

    But what's much worse is when they out-and-out lie about them -- like all the doctors who tell their osteoarthritis patients not to bother with glucosamine and chondroitin.

    This bad advice means millions of patients suffering from the pain and misery of osteoarthritis never try the one thing that might actually help them.

    It's a crime, if you ask me, because there's more science to back glucosamine and chondroitin than there is for most of the drugs commonly given to osteoarthritis patients (and your doctor probably knows it, too).

    And now, we've got even more as a major new study confirms that these two supplements taken together can slow the narrowing of joint space inside the knee.

    That narrowing space is caused by the loss of cartilage, or the cushion that protects your knee. The more cushion you lose, the more pain you feel as the joint starts to grind itself to dust.

    Over the long term, that loss of space is what ultimately sets the stage for debilitating and even crippling knee pain.

    But if you take glucosamine and chondroitin, you could slow that process, protect your knees and stop the pain before it starts, according to the new study in the Annals of Rheumatic Diseases.

    And let's see those mainstream doctors try to dismiss this study, because it meets the so-called gold standard in every possible way: It was long-term, double blind and placebo controlled.

    After two years, the patients given 1,500 mg of glucosamine sulfate and 800 mg of chondroitin sulfate per day saw their joint space narrowing improve by 0.1 mm.

    I know what you might be thinking. An improvement of 0.1 mm doesn't sound like much.

    But God didn't put much extra room inside our bodies when He designed us, and the knee is packed more tightly than a city bus at rush hour. Inside your knees, a difference of 0.1 mm could be the difference between comfort and misery.

    Of course, nothing works for all people, all the time, and that's as true for glucosamine and chondroitin as it is for anything else. Some people have great results, some are disappointed and in some cases it can make almost no difference at all.

    Don't give up, and don't turn to pain meds or even surgery -- because there are other natural options out there, including collagen.

    I recommend a form called UC-II.

    And if you need more help slowing and even reversing the damage of osteoarthritis and ending the pain for good, make an appointment to see me at my clinic outside San Diego.

    If you're not in Southern California, I can still help -- I'm also available for telephone consultations. Call 855-DOC-MARK to schedule yours.

  2. Vitamin C kills off cancer cells

    Vitamin C fights cancer

    Vitamin C has been underrated by conventional medicine for treating cancer patients for decades.

    Well, the cat's out of the bag now as a major new study of the benefits of vitamin C confirms that a powerful therapy used for decades in natural medicine can kill cancer cells without doing a drop of damage to normal cells.

    It's plain old vitamin C.

    In high enough levels, vitamin C causes the production of hydrogen peroxide in the blood, and hydrogen peroxide is like kryptonite to cancer cells. As a result, the C was able to wipe out both human and animal ovarian cancer cells when delivered alongside chemo in the new study.

    That's a lab-dish experiment. But the study didn't stop there.

    In a follow-up experiment on 27 human patients with stage III and IV ovarian cancer, vitamin C was shown to boost the cancer-fighting powers of chemo while limiting its toxic side effects.

    In fact, the patients given vitamin C suffered almost no side effects at all, according to the study of the benefits of vitamin C  in the journal Science Translational Medicine.

    Amazing, right? Not really, actually, because this isn't exactly new. We've known about the cancer-fighting powers of vitamin C for decades.

    What's really amazing is how effective Big Pharma and its government pals have been at hiding this from the public -- and they've been doing it in one of the most underhanded ways imaginable.

    Back in the 1970s, a major mainstream study supposedly proved that vitamin C does nothing to fight cancer. But the study was designed to fail, testing only oral supplements instead of the high intravenous doses we know are so effective.

    Ever since that little bait-and-switch, they've claimed research "proves" that C doesn't work against cancer, using the study to persecute (and even prosecute) any doctor heroic enough to offer this life-saving treatment.

    The new study turns the tables, because this one finally used intravenous C instead of oral supplements -- and the results speak for themselves.

    The reason for the big difference between oral and intravenous is something you can actually see -- something you almost certainly have seen if you've ever taken a vitamin C supplement and noticed your pee turn bright yellow afterward.

    That happens because oral C passes through you very quickly. While your body can still use some of it as it flows through, it can never build up in the high levels needed to create the hydrogen peroxide I mentioned earlier.

    Intravenous C can, as the new study shows quite clearly.

    In this case, it was delivered alongside chemo. But in reality, I've found it can actually be used in place of chemo in many cases.

    Whether or not you need chemo is a decision I'll leave up to you and your doctor. Either way, make sure the benefits of vitamin C are part of your treatment -- and don't stop there.

    Other nutrients that can help make cancer treatments more effective and less toxic when delivered intravenously include B vitamins, amino acids, glutathione and zinc.
