  1. URGENT warning for those about to go under the knife

    When they put you on a blood thinner, they’ll INSIST it’s to save your life.

    They KNOW the dangers. Even a paper cut can make your home look like a crime scene.

    The risks – which also include internal bleeding – are INFAMOUS.

    But take it anyway, they’ll say. Take it EVERY DAY.Never miss a dose, and never quit.

    But there’s one HUGE exception

    If you’re going in for surgery, you need to STOP!

    That contradiction is more than just a head-scratcher.

    It’s a blood-red flag!

    Fortunately, there IS a way to thin your blood safely… and NOT have to stop for surgery.

    You’ll get ALL of the benefits -- WITHOUT the bloodbath!

    Meet the SAFEST blood thinner on the planet!

    Suggest omega-3s as a blood thinner to a mainstream doc, and he’ll flip out.

    “No, no, NO! That’s junk science. That’s quackery.That’s nonsense. That can’t possibly thin your blood.”

    But if you’re going in for surgery, that very same doc will tell you to stop taking your fish oil supplements beforehand, just like it’s a blood thinner.

    Just try and figure that out!

    I call it like I see it…

    It’s a CONFESSION that fish oil DOES thin the blood!

    But if you’re on fish oil, you DON’T have to miss a dose… even if you’re going in for surgery.

    In fact, taking it can actually HELP prevent deadly complications!

    In a new study, folks were given very high doses of fish oil in the days before heart surgery.

    Day of the procedure, they were given lower doses… but still higher than what most people take.

    And during the operation and after, they had NO extra risk of complications.

    In fact, they had a LOWER risk of bleeding problems!

    That’s NOT TRUE of ANY current pharmaceutical blood thinner on the market (which is why they make you stop taking it).

    Only fish oil.

    And that’s not the only way this stuff can beat Big Pharma’s blood thinners.

    The omega-3s found in fish oil can also cut your risk of:

    • heart disease by 40 percent
    • heart attack by 28 percent, and
    • death from heart failure by 10 percent.

    The omega-3 fatty acid EPA specifically has been found to cut the risk of:

    • heart attack by 31 percent
    • stroke by 28 percent
    • heart-related death by 20 percent

    Obviously, blood thinners are serious business… and it’s not always going to be a one-for-one trade with fish oil.

    In other words, don’t try this at home, kids.

    Work with your doc – ideally a naturopath who understands this stuff.

  2. The ‘silver bullet’ for mood your shrink will NEVER prescribe

    It’s the biggest racket in modern medicine.

    When you’re battling energy and fatigue issues… THEY DRUG YOU UP!

    When you’re a little down… THEY DRUG YOU UP!

    When you’ve got a “personality” issue…

    They’ll DEFINITELY will DRUG YOU UP for that one!

    But there’s something ELSE that can SOLVE some of today’s BIGGEST problems.

    Even the ones that are supposedly all “in your head.”

    No meds… and no tearful conversations with a shrink about how mommy didn’t hug you enough or daddy didn’t buy you a bike when you were 12.

    It’s a single set of vitamins.

    That’s right -- the RIGHT NUTRIENTS can make you “right in the head.”

    Don’t believe me?

    I’ve seen it firsthand.

    In fact, it’s the reason I went into medicine in the first place!

    ‘Crazy’… or INSANE deficiency?

    More decades ago than I’d care to admit, my sister suffered a breakdown.

    Docs swore the only options were drugs and – quite possibly – putting her away forever.

    She’d never be a productive member of society again, they said.

    And naturally, they also pulled out the Freudian BS…

    Blame the parents!

    Thankfully, my parents – who truly weren’t at fault – didn’t believe a word of it.

    They began searching for another answer…

    Dad came across the groundbreaking work of Dr. Abram Hoffer, who pioneered vitamin B3 for schizophrenia.

    Just 18 months later, my sister was in law school and went on to become a practicing attorney. (I’ll let you decide if that counts as “productive member of society.”)

    Sadly, Dr. Hoffer’s game-changing research on B3 didn’t change a thing in the mainstream.

    They ignored it, as Big Pharma focused instead on profitable drugs instead of effective nutrients.

    But it sure did open MY eyes… and inspire me to get started in medicine.

    That’s just ONE example. ALL the amazing B vitamins pack hundreds of others!

    B3:

    • As we saw with my sister, this single nutrient can REVERSE one of today’s most devastating “psychological” conditions.
    • It can also help ease nicotine cravings to help you quit smoking… and CURE alcohol addiction. Who needs 12 steps when you can just take ONE?

    B6:

    • This is quietly turning into one of the most common deficiencies in the elderly, and low levels have been linked to cognitive decline. In one study, low B6 increased the speed of cognitive decline by nearly FOUR TIMES!
    • This one nutrient also helps your body to produce hormones like serotonin (essential to mood), melatonin (critical for sleep), and norepinephrine (important as a response to stress)

    B12:

    • This “King of the B Vitamins” is essential to mood and memory, as well as your nerves. Common drugs, especially metformin, will drain your body of it, leaving you fatigued, depression, foggy-headed, and more.

    There is a catch when it comes to B vitamins…

    For more serious issues, you can’t always just pop a B complex and consider yourself covered.

    You may need higher doses in the care of an experienced naturopath, who’ll often deliver them via injection.

  3. [Shocker] The only thing ‘complicated’ about your diabetes is your MEDS!
