  1. Vitamin C cuts diabetes-related heart risk

    Turn back the clock on heart damage

    February is "Heart Health Month," which means this is the perfect opportunity to shine a light on the damage that diabetes can cause to your heart.

    Once you're diagnosed with diabetes, your chances of dying from heart disease shoot through the roof.

    Even though you can't see it, it's by far the worst of the damage you can experience if you've got diabetes.

    But African researchers have proven there's a simple way to help protect your ticker.

    And it's as simple as loading up on vitamin C, one of the most powerful antioxidants around -- even if you've got YEARS of diabetes damage.

    In the study, scientists looked at the effects of vitamin C on high glucose levels in the blood.

    You see, when your blood sugar spikes (as it does when you've got type 2 diabetes), it reacts with proteins in your body to form what are known as advanced glycation end products (AGEs).

    Now that's a mouthful, for sure -- but what you need to know is that these AGEs cause serious long-term damage to your heart.

    But researchers found that regular vitamin C supplements not only blocked the formation of AGEs, but they also reduced their levels by up to 28 percent.

    And fewer AGEs means less chance of potentially deadly heart failure or a heart attack.

    If you're not already supplementing with vitamin C, February is a great time to start, even if you don't have diabetes. Aside from protecting your heart, it boosts your immune system and is crucial for bone and joint health.

    As well, this is a good time to make sure you're getting enough sleep. If you're not getting enough sleep, you may be putting yourself on the fast track to Diabetes City, as studies have found that sleepless nights can turn into a blood sugar problem.

  2. Intravenous vitamin C a life-saver for cancer patients

    Natural protocol destroys cancer cells -- without the side effects

    Q: Have you had any luck using intravenous vitamin C to treat cancer?

    G.R.: Actually, I've had tremendous success using intravenous vitamin C (IVC) to treat just about every cancer you can imagine.

    And it's an absolute disgrace that many cancer patients are not being offered access to this life-saving treatment.

    You see, the mainstream is obsessed with taking a "slash and burn" approach to treating cancer. They want to use surgery, radiation, and chemo to either cut or poison the cancer out of your system.

    The only problem is that the side effects are brutal, and plenty of healthy tissue becomes collateral damage.

    IVC is different. You see, high doses of vitamin C in the blood help generate the production of hydrogen peroxide, which is toxic to cancer cells.

    And there are very few, if any, side effects for most patients.

    Even the federal government admits that studies have shown that IVC can slow or stop the spread of cancer. And the University of Kansas Medical Center even publishes an IVC protocol that lots of alternative docs like me use.

    I can't tell you how many patients' lives I've extended using IVC. The science behind it is solid, and it's been used successfully for many, many years.

    Of course, without Big Pharma pushing it, expect IVC to stay out of favor with the mainstream. Some hospitals and cancer centers do offer it, but odds are you'll have to call around to alternative doctors in your area to find someone who specializes in IVC.

  3. Study finds airplanes are a cesspool of immune system challenging germs

    Sickening bacteria like E.coli and MRSA can survive on airplane surfaces for up to one full week. But having a bulked up immune system can keep you safe.
  4. Vitamin C cuts risk of deadliest stroke

    A new study shows that a daily dose of fresh peppers or citrus rich in vitamin C could prevent hemorrhagic stroke, a deadly form of brain bleeding.
  5. Fight cataracts with these nutrients

    Eat more antioxidant-rich foods, and your risk of cataracts will plunge.
  6. Vitamin C lowers BP

    When a drug drops BP levels by a few lousy points, docs throw a party. When a vitamin does the same thing they claim, "it's only a few lousy points." Which is it?
  7. The 'forbidden' foods that will save your brain

    A healthy diet rich in key nutrients can protect your brain and keep dementia at bay? No kidding! Yet that's the latest "discovery" from the mainstream -- and you're not going to believe what they put seniors through to figure this out.
  8. The flu that wasn't

    When did we become such big babies? Every little sneeze and sniffle has turned into a big drama -- and now, just about everyone who gets sick assumes they have the flu.
