Prescription drugs and FDA

  1. [URGENT WARNING] “Darling” antibiotic can cause your aorta to EXPLODE

    The latest FDA warning names well-known drugs in an ALARMING REPORT…

    The agency has declared the benefits of fluoroquinolone antibiotic drugs do NOT outweigh the risks.

    Now, you might recognize a few of these names: Cipro, Factive, Levaquin, Avelox, Noroxin, and Floxin.

    They are responsible for 30 million outpatient prescriptions each year.

    And it “turns out” the drugs:

    • Negatively impact mental health;
    • Significantly decrease blood sugar; and
    • Have a disabling effect on nerves, joints, muscles, and the central nervous system.

    That means you’ve probably taken them without knowing the heart risk

    You may not have even noticed the boxed warning that says they can rupture your tendons.

    Folks, this about-face by the FDA is truly sickening.

    Remember, these drugs were originally APPROVED by the agency!!

    It’s about time to QUIT mainstream’s game...

    Today, I’ll show you how you can avoid antibiotics altogether, so they can KEEP their revisionist warnings.

    Warning: exploding aorta ahead

    Two studies—just two—have caused the FDA to release its warning.

    Both noted an increase in aortic aneurysms due to fluoroquinolone antibiotics. (An aortic aneurysm is when your aorta swells and bursts, causing internal bleeding.)

    These studies were completed in two different countries and over a HALF MILLION patients were evaluated.

    After seeing these studies, the FDA was forced to face the truth: antibiotics are often unnecessary and DEADLY.

    What to do instead

    Fluoroquinolones are primarily prescribed for respiratory and urinary tract infections.

    Now, you’re not going to be able to completely avoid these illnesses, but you can SIGNIFICANTLY decrease your chances of getting them with these simple strategies:

    • Thoroughly wash your hands with regular soap and water.
      Spend at least 30 seconds scrubbing your hands with soap.
    • Don’t touch your face.
      This is one of the most powerful strategies I employ. The gateways to your body are through your eyes, and the mucus membranes in your nose and mouth. If you keep your hands away from these areas, you’ll have a much easier time avoiding infection.
    • Eat healthy and stay active.
      These are two simple ways to keep your immune system humming when everyone else’s is breaking down. Be sure to stay active even when the weather is cold outside.
    • Supplement with vitamins D3 and C.

    In the winter months, you’ll need about 4,000 IU of vitamin D3 and 3 grams of vitamin C – daily – to boost your immune system. When the sun comes out and you get outdoors, you can reduce your vitamin D3 to about 2,000 IUs a day.

  2. DITCH your statins -- this natural solution works JUST AS WELL

    If there’s one thing you SHOULDN’T do for your heart, it is taking statins.

    That’s right -- I’m talking about ditching the most commonly prescribed drug for high cholesterol!

    Now, I’m not telling you this to make waves, or for the sake of being contrary.

    I’m telling you because study after study – not to mention loads of hospital admission data – flies in the face of the LIES Big Pharma is selling you.

    And all the while, there’s something just as effective as statins – and it’s FREE OF SIDE EFFECTS.

    The “cure” is FAR WORSE than the “disease”

    Mainstream medicine and BIG PHARMA would have you believe statins are successful and nearly free of side effects.

    But they’re ignoring the truth.

    Statins are well-documented to do some SERIOUS DAMAGE, including:

    • Doubling your risk of Parkinson’s
    • Increasing your chances of becoming diabetic
    • Causing acute kidney failure

    That’s just to name a few.

    And a new study uncovered another HORRIFYING truth about statins…

    The longer you take them, the more likely you are to experience life-threatening side effects.

    In fact, the chances are so high, the study’s scientists say the RISK OUTWEIGHS the benefits of statins – especially if you’re over 70!

    Of course, Big Pharma’s lies should come as no surprise.

    You see, statins are on of their biggest MONEY MAKERS.

    In just 10 years, statin use has increased from 36 percent to 50 percent of people diagnosed with “high cholesterol” – a threshold that suspiciously keeps dropping over the years.

    But you don’t have to play Big Pharma’s game.

    Prevent heart attacks and strokes WITHOUT UNNECESSARY DANGER

    A new study has found a way to SLASH the risk of heart disease.

    It’s just as effective as statins, but poses ABSOLUTELY NO RISK to you.

    The study followed women for 12 YEARS to assess their risk of cardiovascular events while eating a Mediterranean Diet.

    They found the closer the Mediterranean Diet was followed, the better the participants fared. In fact, researchers discovered it worked just as well as statins!

    You get all the benefits of statins with none of the risk – just by eating better.

    And in fact, you can take it a step further if you want to correct health problems naturally via your diet...

    The Mediterranean Diet is great, but I believe it includes far too many carbs in the form of legumes and whole grains.

    These simply do more harm than good.

    That’s why I whole-heartedly endorse the Paleo Diet. It’s a way of eating that harkens back to our ancestors.

    This focuses primarily on lean meats and healthy oils from nuts and seeds – including a staple of the Mediterranean Diet, extra virgin olive oil.

    And like the Mediterranean Diet, you’ll eat a wide variety of vegetables and fruit!

  3. The healing secret that’s right under your feet

    Back in the day, getting a cut or a scrape was no big deal. You slapped on a Band-Aid... smeared on a topical antibiotic cream (remember Bacitracin?)... and poof! In a few days, that gash was all healed up. But as we age, our bodies heal wounds much more slowly. After all, our immune systems aren’t as active as they...
  4. Don’t fall for this new antidepressant SCAM

    I’ve been practicing medicine for 40 years, and I’ve seen Big Pharma use every sleazy trick in the book to make a buck. But this time, it’s gone WAY too far… I don’t need to tell you that antidepressant use is EXPLODING in America right now. Prescriptions are up 65 percent over the past 15 years. And the drug companies...
  5. Could your BP med cause CANCER?

    If you've been reading my eTips for a while, you know that blood pressure meds can do a lot more harm than good. As I've shared with you before, these drugs come with some pretty hefty side effects, from irregular heartbeat to problems in the bedroom. But if you're currently taking the BP drug valsartan -- which actually has fewer...
  6. Are pain meds WRECKING your love life?

    Part of my purpose as an integrative doctor is to tell it like it is… and call each thing by its right name. (Thank you, Doctor Zhivago.) So, let’s stop calling opioid drugs like oxycodone and fentanyl “painkillers” – because that’s not really right. Instead, let’s start calling them what they REALLY are – just plain ol’ KILLERS. These meds...
  7. This is your belly on prescription drugs

    If you’ve been reading my eTips for a while now, you know that your gut is home to TRILLIONS of bacteria (a.k.a. your "microbiome"). The majority are beneficial, helping your body break down food... metabolize and absorb vitamins... and even shore up your immune system. But lurking among those “good guys” are some bugs from the wrong side of the...
  8. Not taking antibiotics? Your belly bugs might still be at risk

    Friend, right now… as you read this… you're crawling with bugs. No, I'm not talking about those multi-legged pests like ants and spiders that have started to hatch with the warmer weather. I mean the community of bacteria inside your GUT! Your gut is home to TRILLIONS of bacteria (a.k.a. your "microbiome"), and the majority of them are beneficial. They...
  9. These meds create a buffet for bad bugs

    You check in to the hospital... and you expect to check out feeling much healthier than when you arrived. Thankfully, most folks do. But more and more, we're seeing that those who’ve spent time in hospital beds pick up secondary infections that are WORSE than the illnesses they came in with! That's because nasty bacteria often lurk in healthcare facilities...
  10. NSAID users commonly exceed recommended daily limits

    What will maxing out on pain meds do to you? If you're prone to pain -- whether from headaches, arthritis, or just the slings and arrows of aging -- you might have a bottle of ibuprofen within reach at all times. After all, you never know when it's going to hit you. (And when it does, it's usually at the...
