  1. Why your pain pills DON’T work… and what DOES!

    The jig is up!

    When you complain about your pain… when you say the opioid meds aren’t working the way they used to… they’ll boost the dose and send you away, claiming more meds will lead to less pain.

    It doesn’t.

    They KNOW it doesn’t.

    But they do it anyway, for one simple reason.

    It’s FAST!

    Many of today’s big corporate clinics are all about speed. Get you in, get you out, get to the next patient fast. HURRY HURRY HURRY!

    Seeing MORE patients in LESS time means BIGGER profits.

    But while this approach is great for the corporate balance sheet, it’s terrible for patients – especially when you’re struggling with chronic pain

    So allow me to share a better plan today.

    How to beat chronic pain without resorting to opioids

    Finding the true cause of chronic pain isn’t easy.

    It takes skill… and more importantly, it takes time. Even the best doctors won’t be able to help much if they don’t have the time – and that’s what’s being stolen from them by this system.

    So they prescribe opioids for pain. And when they STILL feel pain… as is so often the case since the root problem hasn’t been found or fixed… doctors simply boost the dose.

    But the new study of more than 50,000 people finds higher doses – even 20 percent higher – lead to NO meaningful change in pain levels for chronic conditions including arthritis, back pain, neck pain, nerve pain and headaches.

    I’d call this a sham. But this is worse than a sham – because these are desperate patients with real pain who TRUST the system to help them.

    And that system is betraying them!

    They’re not only being DENIED relief. Those higher doses will also lead to a higher risk of side effects including falls, respiratory struggles, nausea, constipation, addiction and death.

    Amazingly, there often is a safe and inexpensive one-pill solution that can work wonders for patients with chronic pain – and doctors NEVER mention it!

    The secret could be as simple as vitamin C.

    This essential vitamin is needed for the growth and repair of body tissue as well as maintaining skin, cartilage, bones and teeth.

    When you fall short, those elements can fall apart – leading to back, neck, hip and knee pain and more.

    Boost the C, and your pain levels can plunge. One study, for example, found that just 1 gram a day for two weeks eased the pain of osteoarthritis. (This is a perfectly safe dose; but if you find it makes you a little gassy split it into smaller doses spread throughout the day.)

    And if you’re still struggling with pain, don’t turn to opioids.

    Speak to a doctor SKILLED in functional or integrative medicine who has the TIME needed to help find the root cause of your pain… and correct it naturally.

  2. Cholesterol control could take a frightening turn

    The summer movie season’s a bust as coronavirus keeps theaters off-limits in many places.

    But if you want the thrills and chills of a horror flick, you don’t need to check out the big screen.

    Just take a look at what Big Pharma’s up to!

    They’re cooking up a new treatment for cholesterol they claim will change the game – but when you see the details, you’ll find more scares than ANYTHING in a movie.

    Because they’re not just targeting cholesterol anymore.

    They’re zeroing in on your genes.

    What could POSSIBLY go wrong???

    BUSTED: The cholesterol myth… exposed

    New research offers a peek of where the industry’s heading.

    They’re trying to unlock the GENETIC CODE for cholesterol control.

    By comparing human and mice cells to spot the similarities, they believe they’ve found the gene that’s basically an on-off switch for cholesterol production in the liver.

    In experiments on mice, they found the Sestrin1 gene switches cholesterol production “on” when you’re not getting enough of it from diet… and then “off” when you are.

    When they shut down the gene in mice, cholesterol levels in the blood shot up since they were no longer regulating it naturally.

    Now, of course, there’s talk of trying to turn that into a drug, one that can just as easily turn cholesterol on and off inside your body.

    But do you REALLY want to let them mess with your GENETIC CODE just to cut cholesterol???

    Not on your life!

    Of course, that’s what they claim is on the line with cholesterol: Your life. And if your levels jump, you’re at risk.

    But this relentless focus on LDL isn’t about your life or your health.

    It’s about PROFITS.

    After earning billions of statins, the industry has been trying to repeat that success with newer and even more expensive treatments – like the PCSK9 inhibitors with a wholesale cost of more than $14,000 a year.

    Even WITH insurance, patients have to shell out some $300 a month for these drugs!

    But waddaya get for all that dough?

    A 1-in-66 chance of avoiding secondary outcomes such as a non-fatal heart attack or chest pain requiring hospitalization and a 1-in-166 chance of avoiding death for any reason. Cost per life saved is $2,324,000.

    Instead of using these easy-to-grasp numbers, the study authors present you with percentages, which can make the benefits appear more important than they really may be.

    Also, this is just one study. Shouldn’t we wait for more studies before we know the truth about this enormously costly drug to be touting its supposed promise.

    Here’s a fact: More than HALF of all patients who have their first heart attack have NORMAL cholesterol.

    If LDL were the big, bad guy, how could that be???

    There are other very important pieces of the cholesterol puzzle such as Lp(a), short for lipoprotein(a). This very specific – and very nasty – form of cholesterol is a much bigger warning sign of plaque in the arteries.

    Up to ONE IN FIVE Americans have this risk factor right now… and most DON’T know it!

    I usually combine a test for Lp(a) with a CIMT ultrasound for an even closer look at plaque levels. If plaques are forming inside the arteries, I find a combination of natural therapies can often cut Lp(a), bring LDL levels in line and restore the arteries, all at the same time:

    • Vitamin K2
    • Kyolic Garlic
    • CoQ10 (ideally MitoQ)
    • Turmeric
    • Fish oil (or increased fish meals)

    Of course none of this will help much if you’re eating processed foods, so cut back – or better still, cut OUT – the junk. Get a little more movement and a little more sleep and you’ll be well on the way to a TOTAL health solution.
