  1. What EVERY senior needs to know BEFORE knee surgery

    There’s a class of painkiller out there right now so dangerous that EVERYONE in medicine is under orders to limit it.

    And when I say EVERYONE, I mean there’s not a doc in the nation who isn’t aware of this.

    So what are they doing?

    A shocking new study finds they’re giving it out MORE often… and to the very patients MOST at risk!

    They’re pumping seniors full of opioids after knee surgery at a pace never seen before – and that could have massive repercussions across the nation.

    But not you. Not today.

    And not anymore!

    Because I’ve got a two-step action plan to save your knees, end the pain and feel better than ever… without opioids, and without surgery!

    BEAT knee pain without drugs or surgery

    If it hasn’t happened to you yet, just wait.

    There are few guarantees in life, but knee pain is one of them – because it’s just a fact that your joints take a beating over the years.

    First they creak and moan.

    Then they SCREAM.

    If you’re at creak-and-moan levels, docs will typically just give you pain pills, often the over-the-counter stuff.

    But when the knees start to SCREAM, they break out the scalpel.

    It’s joint replacement time!

    And that, my friend, is when it happens – when they give you drug you want nothing to do with… just to help you over the hump of the surgery’s painful recovery period.

    Like I said earlier, docs were warned to STOP dishing out opioids so frequently, especially to seniors. Even when you don’t become addicted to them, they can leave you woozy, unsteady and even cause cognitive problems – side effects that can be magnified in older folks.

    Yet the study finds seniors are getting them more, not less.

    Just a few years ago, 82 percent of patients who had knee or hip replacement surgery were on opioids within 60 days of the procedure.

    That number’s unacceptably high… and should be coming WAY down.

    But today, 90 percent of patients are given these drugs after the surgery!

    Clearly, doctors aren’t doing their part to end the use, misuse, overuse and outright abuse of these meds.

    So let me step in here with TWO ACTIONS you can take to ensure you’re never in a position to need these meds.

    ACTION #1: Do you REALLY need that knee replacement? I know the surgeon SAID you do… but he’s a surgeon. OF course he’s gonna say that!

    You know the old saying. Never ask the barber if you need a haircut.

    In reality, a 2018 study found that up to a third of the operations NEVER should’ve been done, and many of the rest were kinda iffy. Overall, they found just 44 percent of knee replacements fully met clinical guidelines for surgery.

    Call it a sign to always get a second or even third opinion. And if you do need surgery, talk to the doc beforehand about post-op recovery plans, making it clear you want the safest option… not opioids.

    ACTION #2: Don’t need surgery yet? Good – now, let’s keep it that way!

    You can STOP the progression of damage, FIGHT the pain, EASE inflammation and RESTORE function and movement… and you can do it without drugs.

    As readers of Health Revelations learned earlier this month, UC-II collagen – which is pulled from chicken bones, of all things – has not only beaten placebos in studies but was also shown to be TWICE as effective as glucosamine and chondroitin.

    It’s available both on its own – for as little as $8 a month – and in combination with other pain-fighting treatments in knee formulas.

  2. Arthritis shots can lead to FASTER knee decline

    This popular arthritis treatment is a BUST

    What’s the most important part of your body?

    My answer will probably surprise you… because I wouldn’t pick my brain, heart or any of the vital organs.

    It’s my KNEES!

    Sure, if my heart stopped I’d by dead like anyone else.

    But if I couldn’t get up, head out and go for a walk? Well, that would be a kind of death for me too – so believe me when I tell you that I’d do just about ANYTHING to protect my knees from arthritis.

    I don’t worry about it too much, despite being right around the age where wear-and-tear arthritis usually takes its toll…

    Because I’ve got an Old World secret for knee protection. It’s backed by modern science – and I’ll spill the beans on it in a moment.

    First, let me tell you about something I’d NEVER do… no matter how much pain I’m in… and no matter how DESPERATE I might be.

    It’s a quick and common treatment that’s been given to millions of older Americans.

    But new research exposes the ugly truth about corticosteroid shots.

    They not only WON’T help…

    They could actually make your knees even worse!

    Beat knee pain (no shots or drugs required)

    Whether it’s an evening stroll through the gorgeous foothills of western Massachusetts, or a long ramble through the stunning Scottish countryside, my legs get plenty of work on both sides of the Atlantic.

    Walking might be the slowest form of transportation.

    But it’s the best way to get around, SEE the world (or at least your neighborhood), and keep fit and healthy all at once.

    When your knees start to go, you start to slow. It becomes difficult and maybe even impossible to get around – and in what can’t be a coincidence, those arthritis-induced mobility problems often lead to a rapid decline in overall health.

    Save your knees, and you can stop that decline.

    Just don’t count on corticosteroid shots to get the job done…

    A new study shows that they likely WON’T help with pain – and even when they do, the relief levels will be pretty small.

    But a stunningly high percentage of patients who get these shots suffer horrifying complications.

    The new study finds 8 percent – nearly 1 in 10! – suffer from conditions such as:

    • Sudden, rapid acceleration of arthritis
    • Rapid destruction of the joint
    • Bone loss
    • Stress fractures
    • Osteonecrosis, aka “bone death.”

    Here’s the absolutely frustrating part of this: Docs still offer the shots, despite constant proof it doesn’t work. Meanwhile, a natural blend of enzymes from Germany that IS proven to work gets ignored.

    In fact, I’ll bet you’ve never heard of it.

    It’s called Wobenzym, and in a 2015 study it went head-to-head against both an NSAID painkiller and a placebo.

    It won by EVERY measure.

    In fact, it delivered just as much pain relief as the drug in patients with moderate to severe arthritis, AND helped to restore mobility and function… but without the risks that come from NSAIDs.

    A number of companies make it. One well-studied blend comes from a German company called Mucos, which is readily available here in the United States under its own name as well as in similar blends distributed by Garden of Life and Douglas Labs.
