Prescription drugs and FDA

  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. [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.

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