  1. [SCAM WATCH] What you need to know about the flu shot

    The feds are doing their best to scare the heck out of you. 

    According to the latest headlines, if you’re not rushing out to get a flu shot now, you’re a goner. 

    But here’s what they’re NOT telling you…  

    More people than EVER are getting flu shots… and last year was still one of the DEADLIEST flu seasons in 40 years.  

    How could this happen? 

    It’s all due to a nasty secret about the flu shot… one our government doesn’t want you to know. 

    The straight TRUTH 

    Why didn’t last year’s flu shot save all of the lives it was supposed to?  

    In short, one of the viruses mutated. And that mutated virus was a deadly one. 

    The truth is that flu viruses mutate all the time. They can mutate during ONE flu season.  

    So even if the government chose the right virus strain for this year’s flu shot, it’s no guarantee the virus won’t do its presto-chango trick, leaving you DEFENSELESS against it. 

    Worse still, every year’s shots have only three to four virus strains in them. That doesn’t do much for you...  

    Research shows there are over 219 viruses known to infect people. And those are just the ones we KNOW about. 

    So why does out government keep pushing the flu shot? 

    Because Uncle Sam is in the pocket of Big Pharma… and flu season is BIG money for the drug companies.  

    So they’ve lobbied heavily in DC to expand the flu shot mandate. Every man, woman, and child is targeted. 

    The best flu shot alternative 

    Getting a flu shot is a personal choice – you should get one if you like, but shouldn’t feel pressured by the government. 

    If you’re looking for a NATURAL and SAFE alternative, try an Echinacea root supplement! 

    The root of this flowering plant is rich in immunity-boosting phytochemicals known as alkylamides. Studies have shown that it’s a powerful preventative supplement.  

    Researchers in one study found that folks taking a high dose of liquid Echinacea extract SLASHED their risk of getting the flu DOWN to 2 PERCENT! 

    The best daily preventive dose is 2.5 g of Echinacea root.  

    But if you start to feel like you’re coming down with a cold or flu, up your dose to 7.5 – 10 g per day until you feel better.  

  2. How to SAVE your own life… in 60 seconds

    If you ask me, lots of the so-called health “experts” out there are practically masters of torture.  

    Everything they recommend is so darned HARD! 

    They want you counting every calorie… skipping EVERY food you love… and working out like a Marine in basic training.  

    Well, protecting your health… and adding YEARS to your life… shouldn’t be so difficult.  

    In fact, I’m going to show you a simple way to stop many of the worst killers around.  

    And it takes literally 60 seconds a day.  

    **** 

    The biggest cause of disease, hands down, is run-away inflammation.  

    So how do you stop it? 

    The first place you can start is with that lonely, abandoned roll of floss in your medicine cabinet.  

    I don’t know the REAL percentage of people who floss every day… but the percentage of people who CLAIM they floss every day is 100%.  

    Dentists will tell you it’s the number-one thing their patients lie about.  

    But if you’re not flossing enough, it’s time to start – it could be a matter of life and death.  

    We talk a lot about protecting the collection of bacteria in your gut (your microbiome). But the microbiome in your mouth is pretty important, too.  

    It really doesn’t make much sense to separate the microorganisms in your mouth from the ones in your gut: studies show that 40 percent of the bacteria in your gut match the ones in your mouth.   

    A bad combination of bugs in your mouth triggers inflammation that can cause cavities, gingivitis and periodontitis. But it also increases the risk for heart disease, diabetes, and cancer throughout your body.  

    It is well-known that bacteria associated with periodontal disease produce chemicals such as lipopolysaccharide (LPS) which can alter the body’s control of blood sugar levels and contribute to the accumulation of plaque and clotting factors in the arteries of your heart.  

    Other studies have found periodontal bacteria DNA in coronary artery plaque – a straight pathway from mouth bacteria to heart disease.  

    The good news is you can easily improve the microbes in your mouth with a couple simple steps.  

    First, try to cut back on the sugars and carbs – sugar is like rocket fuel for bad mouth bacteria.  

    Second, flossing is a scientifically proven way to keep the harmful bacteria in check.  

    Just 60 seconds of flossing a day won’t just make your teeth healthier – it could have a dramatic impact on your overall health.  

  3. Could Parkinson's begin in your EYES?

    Like many older guys, I wear glasses. At my age, I’m helpless without them! Father Time can really do a number on our vision as time goes by. But it’s not just about reading the newspaper or a menu in a dark restaurant. Because what’s going on in our eyes can tell us a lot about what’s going on in...
  4. Are these popular meds GIVING you Alzheimer’s?

    Want to hear 30 seconds of total silence at your next doctor’s appointment? Ask your doc why some people get Alzheimer’s and some don’t. The truth is that the typical mainstream doctor can’t tell you. Maybe he’ll eventually give you some spiel about bad luck or bad genes… But that’s not the whole story. Fact is, we’re surrounded by toxins...
  5. ALERT: No state is safe from Lyme!

    Happy Labor Day. I hope you’re getting some R&R today with those you love. Now, summer may be winding to a close, but don't pack away your bug spray just yet. Not only are warm-weather pests like ticks still out in droves… but since this has been one of the hottest years on record, they're likely to STAY out for...
  6. How a veteran TV star is overcoming a nightmare diagnosis

    I don’t go too ga-ga over celebrities. I enjoy a good movie… and I love to tap my toe to a happy tune… but I don’t exact turn to the stars of stage and screen for life advice. But every now and then, a celebrity story comes out and grabs my attention – and that’s exactly happened with the news...
  7. A major victory for the Average Joes and Janes!

    I’m a little suspicious of authority. I hardly ever take what so-called “experts” say at face value. And when I hear about new guidelines from the feds… or “breaking news” coming out of the latest conference… I embrace a healthy amount of skepticism. Before I give ANY credence to anything coming from the “authorities,” I dig past the headlines and...
  8. Turn down the heat… inside your brain?

    Friend, this summer is a scorcher. It’s hotter than ever in multiple spots across the country, and I thank my lucky stars that the A/C is still working at my clinic and in my home and car. At least you can beat the heat that’s outside. But when it comes to the fires that may be raging inside your body…...
  9. What your eyes can tell us about your brain

    They say that your eyes are windows to your soul. And regardless of whether that's true, there sure is a lot that docs can tell about your health by peering deeply into them. Of course, eye diseases like glaucoma and macular degeneration can steal your sight, but that's not all that your doc can see in an eye exam. The...
  10. Diabetic? Don't toss out the eggs

    When you've got diabetes, the most important meal of the day can be the hardest one to figure out. You know that the grains and sugars in typical breakfast foods -- from cereal to doughnuts and pancakes -- will spike your blood sugar and set you up for a crash later on. And you may be equally afraid to eat...
