  1. Is your health being quietly UNDERMINED... by your own drugs? [You betcha!]

    It could be the EASIEST way yet to improve your health...

    And it's something NO conventional doctor in the world will acknowledge.

    Not yet, anyway.

    They HATE this one, my friend... because it doesn't just mean ADMITTING there's a PROBLEM.

    It means they have to admit they were WRONG.

    Most docs would rather hang themselves by their own stethoscopes than do that!

    But new research, just out, shows how just about ALL of them are making a big mistake -- and not just every now and again.

    They've done it millions of times! 

    Because right now... at this very moment... millions of Americans are on drugs they shouldn't be taking.

    Many of the drugs people take... maybe even you... aren't to treat a condition you have.

    They're to treat a condition CAUSED by another drug!

    And nowhere is that TRUER than with blood pressure meds.

    QUIT these meds... for an INSTANT health boost

    New research finds that 20% of all adults... including 1 in 4 women, and 1 in 7 men... are caught in a vicious cycle.

    They're getting TREATED for high blood pressure... while they're TAKING meds known to CAUSE high blood pressure!

    Yes, many of these people are unwittingly taking drugs to deal with the effects of their OTHER drugs.

    In fact, many of these folks WOULD NOT HAVE hypertension if not for those medications secretly causing it.

    Simply QUITTING those drugs would allow 2.2 million Americans to also DITCH their BP meds.

    The WORST part of this whole thing is this...

    You almost certainly NEVER needed that original drug in the first place!

    That means this problem is also a golden opportunity to eliminate 2 bad meds... with 1 swift motion.

    You gotta get rid of the med causing your BP to rise.

    Because if your BP comes back down to normal (as it should)... you can toss that BP-lowering drug in the trash, too.

    In the new study, the lion's share of the BP-elevating meds breaks down into 2 categories.

    Fortunately, each one has a safer option that WON'T cause blood pressure to rise.

    1. ANTIDEPRESSANTS, which are taken by nearly 10% of folks treated for hypertension. The better option here is curcumin, which has proven to be as effective as the most popular antidepressants in the world. And it could also IMPROVE blood flow... instead of increasing blood pressure.

    2. PAINKILLERS, which 8% of patients taking BP meds are taking. For this issue, start with that very same curcumin... which is also a potent natural anti-inflammatory... and/or other nondrug treatments including bromelain, boswellia, capsaicin, MSM, DMSO, etc.

    And don't forget the power of non-drug, non-supplement options as well.

    Chiropractic therapy... acupuncture... massage therapy... physical therapy... and more have all worked wonders for millions with pain AND mood issues.

    P.S. If you're an older gal, your conventional doc might try to PUSH hypertension meds on you... and for the SILLIEST reason! To find out how to DODGE this bullet, just click right here.

  2. [BUSTED!] Shadowy conspiracy BLOCKING Alzheimer's breakthroughs?

    Alzheimer's is one of the most HOPELESS conditions out there.

    People BEAT cancer. They SURVIVE a stroke.

    Some even BOUNCE BACK after a heart attack… and in better shape than ever!

    But not dementia.

    For most, it's like being sucked slowly into a black hole – one you'll never come back out of, as your family and loved ones watch in horror.

    Now, a new report exposes WHY so many efforts are FUTILE in improving Alzheimer's patients' conditions

    Despite DECADES of research!

    This report SUPPOSEDLY comes as a big shock to longtime medical insiders and observers.

    Yeah, right.

    But this is SO WILD… many people will find it hard to believe.

    And now it's time for you to decide for yourself.

     The REAL reason there's NO CURE for Alzheimer's

    There's a group of insiders in the medical industry that's CONTROLLING the "Alzheimer's agenda."

    These folks are actively working to SHUT DOWN some of the most promising efforts to treat, beat, slow, reverse or cure Alzheimer's disease!

    Think I'm being paranoid?

    According to STAT -- a very mainstream website dedicated to news on medical research -- several scientists described those who are pulling the string as "a cabal."

    This cabal decides what gets funded… and what DOESN'T.

    STAT reports that this cabal is ACTIVELY BLOCKING research into anything that doesn't fit their dogma.

    They even control WHO GETS TO SPEAK at scientific events!

    And that's the reason there's NO TREATMENT that can slow, stop or even prevent this disease.

    Apparently, some scientists are quietly rebelling against this "stifling" atmosphere – off the record, of course.

    The cabal backs one theory and one theory only…

    That the beta-amyloid plaques that appear in the brains of Alzheimer's patients hold the key to REVERSING the disease.

    But that's increasingly looking like a MISTAKE… or at the very least only PART of the picture.

    Because while the industry has since developed drugs that target those plaques… NOT ONE OF THEM has improved the disease!

    And in the meantime, researchers haven't been able to focus on some of the OTHER potential causes!

    Take the viral theory, for starters.

    Scientists have found that certain infections… especially chronic ones… can lead to dementia at least some of the time.

    All the way back in 1991, scientists found the herpes simplex 1 virus – the cold sores one – in the brains of people with Alzheimer's.

    Last year, researchers discovered that people with a history of the infection had 2.6X the risk of Alzheimer's… but that treating it with antivirals brought the odds right back down.

    Then there's the bacterial theory.

    Several of the germs in the mouth… especially the ones behind tooth decay and gum disease… can get inside the body via bleeding gums and raise all kinds of havoc including heart attack, stroke, cancer, and dementia.

    In one study, an enzyme made by theP. gingivalis bacteria behind gum disease was found in 99% of the brains of people who died of Alzheimer's.

    Those "bad bugs" are ON TOP OF poisons in food, air, and water that can accumulate in the brain…

    And cause severe memory loss and all the symptoms we call "dementia."

    We know from animal studies and anecdotal human evidence that certain detoxifying treatments like chelation can make a HUGE difference.

    But guess what they're not studying?

    That's right.

    Thank your local cabal for that.

    Everything from inflammation to immune function could also play a role in Alzheimer's, according to "forbidden" research.

    My guess is when this all shakes out… they'll discover that Alzheimer's isn't one disease any more than cancer is one disease.

    It's MANY diseases… with MANY potential forms and causes

    And the longer it takes to accept that… the longer it'll be before American seniors get the TRUE help they deserve.

    But that doesn't mean you have to be a victim of this ugly form of industry politics.

    There's no surefire treatment that works in ALL cases… but I think there's evidence for some excellent places to start…

    • DIAL DOWN as many meds as possible
    • ELIMINATE all sources of toxins in diet (meaning ZERO processed foods)
    • RESTRICT carbohydrates, and
    • SUPPORT brain health with supplements of ginkgo biloba, phosphatidylserine, high-dose intravenous vitamin C, NAC, ALA, etc.

    Work closely with a naturopathic physician who can also help discover underlying causes…

    Including "false" dementias such as chronic Lyme…

    And can customize a personalized approach that's best for you.

    Want to read your doctor’s mind? Just read his prescription pad! If he gives you an antibiotic… there’s a good chance he has NO IDEA what’s wrong but is hoping it goes away in a few days.

It’s the mainstream treatments for it… And how cancer docs treat their patients like walking ATMs. Cancer...

    Well, here’s one heckuva MIXUP for ya. Two very different kinds of medications were recently RECALLED… And unlike the OTHER recalls lately… it’s not because they were CONTAMINATED.
