  1. Ibuprofen for coronavirus? You MUST read this

    After decades on the market, and decades of being mainstream medicine’s “go-to” we know exactly how NSAIDs works.  

    Ibuprofen, a well-known NSAID, is STILL causing the same old laundry list of common side effects: 

    • Stomach ulcers 
    • Dizziness 
    • Heartburn 
    • Liver problems 
    • Leg swelling 

    And worst of all 

    A new report has just revealed taking these common anti-inflammatory drugs could WORSEN the symptoms of the deadly coronavirus, aka COVID-19. 

    Ibuprofen isn’t worth the risk 

    Go to the store right now… just about any store… and you’ll see specific items are flying off the shelves. 

    Among the most popular items sought out by desperate shoppers are: 

    • Hand sanitizer; 
    • Toilet paper; 
    • Clorox wipes; 
    • Disinfectant spray; 
    • Vitamins; 
    • Cough syrup; 
    • And ibuprofen!  

    But according to the latest report… you shouldn’t be so quick to pick up that last bottle.. 

    See, it’s been long known that anti-inflammatories can have a depressive effect on our immune systems 

    And when we take ibuprofen during a cold, we don’t really have to worry about the slight – but important – reduction in our immune response because it’s very unlikely that you could die from a cold. 

    But the exact OPPOSITE could go for the coronavirus… 

    We need our immune system in top working order to fight and WIN the battle against this deadly virus. 

    Anti-inflammatories block our immune system’s ability to release cells called mast cells, which are the body’s first line of defense against the virus! 

    Normally, when the mast cells come into contact with the virus, they trigger an immune response – leading to inflammatory chemicals being released and tackling the foreign invader. 

    But if you take an NSAID like ibuprofen, your body is unable to release these inflammatory chemicals… which, as you probably can guess, leads to a higher risk of complications.  

    You don’t even need NSAIDs 

    The dark truth is that you might not even need NSAIDs. 

    For instance, if you are taking ibuprofen to overcome a fever caused by the common cold or in most cases it’s more effective to let the fever run its course. 

    In fact, previous studies have found that actually INCREASE the severity of the common cold or pneumonia. 

    A fever is your body turning up the heat to incinerate bacteria and viruses. It’s an entirely NORMAL immune response. 

    Folks, there are better and SAFER alternatives out that WON’T put you at risk… 

    The government of Shanghai, China is reportedly recommending vitamin C as an all-natural alternative to reducing the symptoms of coronavirus. 

     

    Remember, vitamin C is essential for a strong immune defense.  

     

    It’s easy enough to bump up the amount you’re getting by paying attention to your diet. Eating a wide variety of fruits and veggies like bell peppers, dark and leafy greens, kiwi, broccoli, strawberries, tomatoes, peas, papayas, citrus fruits, and apples will give you a boost. 

    And if you want to ensure you’re getting enough, purchase a high-quality supplement online or at your local pharmacy. I recommend taking 500mg twice a day. 

  2. Popular pain reliever boosts atrial fibrillation risk 84%

    AHA attack dogs don't have your best interest at heart

    When I was fighting in World War II, we had ourselves a little deal with the Nazis. They wore their silly knee-high girl boots and parachute pants, and we GIs wore our tough-as-nails green fatigues.

    Because when you're in the heat of battle, when bullets are flying everywhere, you need to be able to tell which side a guy is fighting for.

    Just remember that the next time you hear the goose-stepping frauds at the American Heart Association crowing about how they're fighting some war against heart disease, our country's number-one killer. Because underneath those inspirational T-shirts they toss around at walk-a-thons, the AHA is wearing a uniform that ought to make you madder than a cornered cobra.

    They're playing for Team Big Pharma.

    Just look at how the AHA reacted to a breakthrough study out of the Netherlands that proved a billion-dollar class of prescription painkillers could be a nail in the coffin for seniors like you.

    This massive study followed 8,400 seniors for an average of 13 years and found that folks who took non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS) were a whopping 76% more likely to suffer atrial fibrillation, a potentially fatal irregular heartbeat. Worse still, if you took an NSAID -- even prescription-strength ibuprofen -- in the past month, your risk of afib may have skyrocketed 84%!

    So how did these clowns at AHA respond? Did they spend even a fraction of their fortune to warn folks like you to head to your nearest toilet and flush your NSAIDs like a dead goldfish?

    Not exactly. Instead, they dispatched their "spokesman" Dr. Gregg Fonarow of UCLA to throw cold water on the research and declare that more "study" was needed. Friend, when a class of drugs that has ALREADY been linked to heart failure and sudden death boosts your afib risk 84%, we don't need more study -- we need a massive global recall!

    And that's when I started poking around to see which side Dr. Fonarow is REALLY fighting for. Turns out this is the same doctor who accepted $141,000 in "speaking" fees from GlaxoSmithKline and Pfizer, makers of NSAIDs Treximet and Celebrex. Talk about a "potential" conflict of interest. Lots of you could work tax-free for five years without pulling in as much cash as Dr. Fonarow has accepted from Big Pharma -- and this was the attack dog the AHA chose to unleash to discredit a study that could save your life!

    Friend, I told you I was going to start naming names, and I'm not kidding. AHA and its experts have been accepting millions in drug company "grants" and "donations" for years, and it's high time you learned which team they're playing for.

    Here's a hint -- it's not yours.

  3. 'Safe' painkiller worsens asthma

    Asthma patients, if your doc is still telling you that acetaminophen is safe for your condition, it's time to switch docs and find one ready to join the rest of us here in the 21st century.
  4. Ibuprofen linked to miscarriage

    Over-the-counter painkillers end lives -- a tragic reality that the FDA outrageously refuses to recognize.
  5. Painkillers increase your risk of dementia

    I know the drug companies would love for you to believe the popping a pain pill will make you live forever, but it's all a load of hooey.
  6. Supreme court to tackle issue of outrageous school drug witch hunts

    The U.S. Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals and the American Civil Liberties Union have helped to drop the hammer on some San Francisco school officials who took a zero tolerance drug policy way too far.
  7. Over-The-Counter Medicines Cause of Acute Liver Failure?

    With Vioxx in the news (and in your Daily Doses) right and left for its deadly effects, I guess it really shouldn't come as any surprise that the risks of other common painkillers are coming under scrutiny.
