Diseases and Conditions

  1. Why your RA drug is worthless (REAL solution inside!)

    If you have this debilitating disease, you've probably wondered if ANYTHING will work.

    The pain is just too great... and no matter what you do, it never seems to go away. 

    Well, you're not alone…

    In fact, you're in better company than you probably ever thought.

    Because it turns out there’s a MAJOR problem with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) drugs... 

    And a new study shows just how bad it is. 

    But don't worry—I’ll let you in on some much better alternatives today.

    Drugs are highly unlikely to cure RA

    When a doctor writes you a prescription for a rheumatoid arthritis drug, there are two different goals:

    1) Complete remission 

    2) Reduction of symptoms

    If you've been instructed to pick up a TNF (tumor necrosis factor) inhibitor, there's about a 70-80 percent chance you're flat out of luck.

    You see, out of 14,436 patients taking a TNF inhibitor, only 14.9 percent got complete relief... while 23.6 percent saw a reduction in their symptoms. 

    Sure, that’s an improvement.

    But only for very few folks—a quarter or less. 

    So the odds mainstream medicine is going to be able to help you are pretty low. 

    The reason mainstream medicine uses TNF inhibitors for RA is because TNF, a substance produced by your immune system, causes inflammation. 

    Inflammation is at the heart of RA -- which makes the solution a lot easier than mainstream makes it out to be.

    The key is calming your immune system. And the best way to do THAT is to give it the support it needs…

    That’s where these three supplements come in; they’ve been scientifically PROVEN to relieve ALL signs of RA. 

    Try taking them together, as a study shows they’re even more powerful in combination.  

    Not only will this combo reduce your inflammation, it’ll also help rebuild bones and cartilage in your joints:

    Probiotics

    A probiotic with multiple strains and a CFU (colony forming units) in the BILLIONS can prep the stage for an easy win. Probiotics will help clear your gut of inflammation-causing "bad" bacteria and get your immune system back on track.

    They're also vital to help your digestion so you can get the most out of the next two supplements…

    Zinc

    Zinc has long been known to strengthen your immune system thanks to its ability to fight free radicals. It's an old standby in the winter when you feel the pressure of a cold or the flu coming on. And it's difficult for your body to absorb it, so a supplement can give you amounts you'd have difficulty getting from your diet alone.

    CoQ10

    CoQ10 is an antioxidant your body makes. But once you hit your 30s, your production of it comes screeching to a halt. You can certainly take CoQ10 and feel the pain leave your joints, but you'll see better success with ubiquinol -- the more absorbable form of CoQ10.

    And one final pointer…

    You can up the ante even higher with acupuncture. This ancient practice is proven to help reduce inflammation, increase blood flow, and release endorphins. 

    Endorphins are natural, feel-good chemicals that can put your pain to rest. 

    Plus, acupuncture has the added effect of easing the cause of RA – inflammation!

  2. WATCH OUT! Spring cleaning’s hidden dangers (And how to avoid them)

    Sparkling bathroom tiles… that fresh “lemon” scent… crystal clear windows…disinfected cutting boards...

    Whatever the use, you go to the grocery store and pick up any one of dozens of cleaning products.

    They’re convenient…

    They bubble so you know they’re working…

    And you’ve been trained to think a smell is an indication of cleanliness.

    But there’s something notably missing from many of these products.

    AN INGREDIENT LIST!

    The DIRTY TRUTH about conventional cleaning products is that manufacturers aren’t required to display the ingredients in their cleaners – which is exactly HOW they’re able to hide carcinogens and hazardous chemicals.

    Indeed, the EWG (Environmental Working Group) investigated more than 2,000 cleaners and found them seriously lacking when it comes to safety.

    • Fumes from some have been found to CAUSE asthma!
    • Formaldehyde and 1,4-dioxane are in name-brand cleaners – both are CARCINOGENS.
    • Some can irritate your lungs, cause organ damage, and burn your skin and eyes.

    ...It’s no wonder why they’d want to hide their ingredients!

    Today, I’m going to give you a few alternatives...

    These WORK—andthey won’t put you at risk.

    The ONLY 3 cleaning products you need

    You probably have a cleaning product for every need under the sink. Window cleaner… counters… bathroom tile… toilet bowl cleaner… the list goes on and on.

    It’s time to ditch all cancer-causing cleaners and use these three products you probably already have in your cabinets – that AREN’T locked. (That’s a sure sign this move will reduce your risk of getting sick, right?!)

    Here’s the entire list of everything you need:

    • Baking soda
    • Vinegar
    • Soap

    Vinegar is naturally anti-bacterial. It’s a fabric softener and stain remover. It’s even streak-free!

    Baking soda can be combined with water and made into a paste. It’ll make your pots shiny again and remove the mildew in your bathroom.

    You can use plain-old soap and water to disinfect your cutting board or clean virtually anything else.

    If you still want that lemony scent, squeeze a little bit of lemon juice into whatever you’re using.

    Of course, you can also turn to “green” cleansers. You’ll pay a little more, but these products usually proudly display their ingredients on their label so you know EXACTLY what you’re spraying all over your house.

  3. [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...
  4. 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...
  5. 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...
  6. 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...
  7. 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...
  8. 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...
  9. 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...
  10. 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…...
