Prescription drugs and FDA

  1. Want a hospital trip? Then keep taking those blood pressure meds...

    Folks, I've mentioned this a thousand times if I've written about it a half dozen...

    Blood pressure medications are WORTHLESS!

    These drugs have been linked to:

    • Increase risk of DEATH in people with diabetes
    • Increased risk of BONE FRACTURES
    • Recurrent BREAST CANCER
    • And more.

    Oh, and not to mention the recalls we've seen over the past year because so many have contained cancer-causing chemicals.

    And now, there’s yet ANOTHER reason to avoid them...

    Your one-way ticket to the hospital

    The hospital is NOT where you want to end up...

    I don’t have to tell you it's no fun sitting on a bed while a doctor takes your vitals and says you've just had a heart attack.

    Yet, if you're given a blood pressure lowering medication, you're likely to find yourself there—again... and again...

    Now, some doctors will tell you the “fix” is for you to go on antihypertensive drugs; that they are your only option for getting your blood pressure back in the right range.

    But recent research shows you should NOT DO THIS AT ALL!

    You see, folks who got a prescription for an antihypertensive drug AFTER being released from the hospital were more likely to:

    • Suffer a SERIOUS adverse event

    Adding insult to injury, after one year of taking blood pressure-lowering medications, no benefit was seen compared to folks who didn't!

    And here’s the real clincher...

    There are natural solutions that work BETTER than these worthless antihypertensive drugs!

    You can SLASH your blood pressure—naturally

    Of course, the best way to lower your blood pressure is with diet and exercise. Walking 20 minutes a day and ditching processed foods and sugars can do WONDERS for your health.

    Those should always be the first places you turn.

    But there's a SECRET to high blood pressure levels most doctors won't tell you. It has everything to do with WHY the problem is occurring in the first place...

    It involves three extremely important components produced naturally in your body—certain vitamins, a certain gas, and a certain amino acid:

    1. Three B vitamins are responsible for maintaining your blood pressure levels: folic acid, B6 and B12.

    They work by lowering levels of an amino acid called homocysteine. Homocysteine has been correlated with increased artery stiffness, leading to hypertension.

    1. Another player in the blood pressure game is nitric oxide (NO). It’s a gas produced in your body, naturally, that helps RELAX your blood vessels...

    Like many other processes in your body, NO becomes more difficult to produce the older you get.

    The result is stressed blood vessels that cause high blood pressure.

    1. And finally, an amino acid called L-arginine is able to aid those stressed blood vessels.

    Separately, these three components can help take your blood pressure down a notch.

    But when scientists gave them to seniors all at the same time, they found their blood pressure levels dropped dramatically -- to the tune of 6 mmHg in just 90 days.

    Compare THAT to the antihypertensive meds that didn't do ANYTHING after an entire year, and it really goes to show just how worthless blood pressure-lowering drugs truly are!

  2. SCARY! Blood pressure drugs make dementia risk SKYROCKET

    Did you know that when the American Heart Association came out with new blood pressure guidelines nearly two years ago, nearly everyone was put on the “at risk” list?

    The agency says these lower numbers can save lives.

    But I’ll let you in on a little secret…

    Drug companies have influenced the new cholesterol guidelines SO MUCH that it’s becoming very obvious the system is RIGGED!

    Conventional doctors feel FORCED to put their patients on a statin, for fear of looking like a “bad doctor.”

    In fact, the situation has gotten so bad my patients are telling me their doctors practically GUILT them into taking a statin.

    Even worse...there’s absolutely no proof that high cholesterol even CAUSES heart disease!

    And now, new research has linked hypertension drugs with dementia…

    That’s right; the drugs you may not even need could be DESTROYING your BRAIN.

    Today, you’ll see this scary new research—and I’ll help you get OFF those meds once and for all...

    Blood pressure drugs are DANGEROUS

    High blood pressure (over 140) has been implicated in dementia. So it makes sense your doctor would want you to drop your blood pressure levels to protect both your heart and mind.

    But mainstream doctors simply don’t yet realize truth about hypertension drugs.

    They’re too constrained by Big Pharma…and they haven’t been following the evidence piling up against these meds.

    The latest studies, published in JAMA (Journal of the American Medicine Association), reveal blood pressure levels below 120 are actually MORE problematic than those between 130 and 140.

    It turns out folks with blood pressure under 120 had less brain mass!

    A separate study showed people with hypertension in middle age followed by hypotension later (less than 90) had a significant jump in dementia risk.

    Now, the point here isn't to scare you about lowering your blood pressure…

    It’s just that these studies are PROOF POSITIVE mainstream medicine is going about it ALL WRONG.

    You see, it's only during intense treatments—like with blood pressure lowering medications—that this happens.

    Normotensive (people with "normal" blood pressure levels) don't experience this higher risk of dementia. I'll tell you how to do this in a moment...

    But first, you need to know which drugs can cause your blood pressure drop to BRAIN-KILLING levels.

    Statins are the obvious drug as their purpose is to lower your blood pressure. But there are others that can TANK your blood pressure such as:

    • Diuretics
    • Alpha blockers
    • Beta blockers
    • Drugs for Parkinson's disease
    • Tricyclic antidepressants, including doxepin (Silenor) and imipramine (Tofranil)
    • Drugs for erectile dysfunction

    While you're on these drugs, monitor your blood pressure carefully.

    Or—better yet—try these methods to get off them completely…

    How to get OFF hypertension drugs

    There's a specific vitamin you are probably deficient in if you have hypertension: B9, or folate.

    In a study involving over 20,000 participants, folks who took folate had a significantly less chance of having a stroke compared to those that didn't.

    Now, you can find B9 in B vitamin complexes and multivitamins. But you'll often find it listed as folic acid.

    Folic acid is the synthetic form. It's difficult for you to absorb, so it's almost worthless.

    If you're looking at a label, "folate" is what you want to see. However, it's BEST to get B9 from foods like dark, leafy greens. You'll also get plenty of other nutrients, including fiber, that can help restore your blood pressure to a normal level.

    And remember, the “Big Two” to getting off hypertension drugs naturally are always going to be diet and exercise.

    Exercise, even something as simple as walking 30 minutes a day, can relieve the tension in your veins; so can eating a diet devoid of processed foods and sugar (like the Paleo diet).

  5. 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...
  6. 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...
  7. 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...
  8. 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...
  9. 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...

    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...
