  1. Could this nutrient trio restore 95% of your lost vision?

    I thought my own eyes were going!

    There it was -- in the MAINSTREAM medical press-- a special report promising the latest and greatest in vision care.

    Medscape promised to give docs “evidence and ‘bottom line’guidancefor patients who ask whether they should take supplements to prevent eye disease.”

    It started out positively enough.

    According to the first report, some supplement formulas slowed progression of age-related macular degeneration, a devastating and permanent form of vision loss.

    Then I saw the “catch.”

    The next report in the link was the usual trash talk, but TIMES TEN – some idiot blabbing about how supplements not only DON’T work, but are also DANGEROUS.

    He even URGED docs to warn patients AGAINST taking them!

    Maybe he’d change his tune if he started going blind from his own case of AMD.

    Because that’s exactly what happened to a retired optician in England about a decade ago.

    The REAL key to saving your eyes and reversing AMD

    At 73 years old, Dr. Harry Marsland had lost all vision in both his eyes.

    His world had LITERALLY gone dark.

    Dry age-related macular degeneration had taken the sight from his left eye… and “wet” AMDhad rendered his right eye blind years earlier.

    Obviously, he had to stop driving. He was even about to learn Braille.

    But first, he tried a supplement containing lutein, zeaxanthin and meso-zeaxanthin.

    And whaddya know -- heregained 95% of the lost vision in his left eye!

    He could even get in the driver’s seat again.

    That was back in 2009…

    His story SHOULD have been celebrated… investigated… and replicated.

    Instead, after a couple of headlines, the good doctor faded into anonymity.

    And the brand-name supplement he used – MacuShield– is NOWHERE to be found ANYWHERE in the Americas.

    But just you wait…

    In a few years, Big Pharma will chemically replicate and alterone of those same compounds just enough to slap a patent and a high price tag on it… and debut it as some expensive new drug.

    It’ll cost MORE…work LESS… and have big RISKS.

    And THEN they’ll celebrate!

    That’s why they don’t want you learning about ANY of these proven natural options for vision loss.

    They’re even LYING about how they don’t work.

    Heck, they’re probably HOPING you go blind… so you can’t read what I’m about to tell you next.

    If you’re concerned about vision loss… if you have AMD or any other vision-robbing condition… use your eyesight while you still have it.

    Do your own homework. Study the SCIENCE -- not the fear-mongering of industry shills.

    And look for vision formulas with PROVEN eye-boosting superstars.

    The lutein, zeaxanthin, and meso-zeaxanthin that the British eye doc tried are all terrific, as are astaxanthin and hyaluronic acid.

  2. [Urgent Warning] Big Pharma tips docs off to ALARMING drug risks

    It’s the letter you were NEVER meant to see.

    It was sent to doctors around the country on the hush-hush… to quietly warn them about a whole mess of new dangers linked to a popular drug.

    People with inflammation of the large intestine are suffering horrific, newly uncovered drug risks.

    But all the dirty details were being HIDDEN from those patients!

    Well, guess what? They sent this letter to ME…

    And I’m about to blow the lid off this thing… and let you know the REAL risks of the drug.

    The hidden horrors of a billion-dollar blockbuster

    The new warning -- oh, sorry, they call it a “safety signal” (you just can’t make this up) – is for a drug called tofacitinib (a.k.a. Xeljanz).

    It’s givento patients with such nasty conditions as rheumatoid arthritis… psoriatic arthritis… and ulcerative colitis.

    Last year alone, it brought in $1.77 billion for its maker, Pfizer. That’s a LOT of money on the line.

    But Pfizer isn’t just adding a little sticker to its label…

    It sent out a ridiculously massive joke of a pamphlet-- one that just keeps unfolding when you open it up, ultimately reaching about one foot by two and a half feet, covered in fine print on both sides (and good luck trying to fold it back up again).

    Once I broke out my magnifying glass, the first thing I spotted was that a higher dose that’s only approved for ulcerative colitispatients -- 10mg/twice-a-day dose -- increases the risk of pulmonary embolism.

    That’s already bad… and MUCH worse than the abdominal pain and diarrhea that come with chronic cases of UC.

    And then this pamphlet gets to “overall mortality,” a.k.a. PATIENT DEATH.

    Even with THAT, those pharma giant jugheads were just getting warmed up.

    Because later on, they warn of hospitalization and death from serious infections… specifically from pneumonia, cellulitis, shingles, UTIs, diverticulitis, and appendicitis.

    Then, FOUR pages into this thing, they throw in one heck of an “oh by the way” revelation…

    The drug’s been linked to CANCER, too!

    Now, ulcerative colitis is certainly no picnic.

    But bear in mind: This drug won’t CURE it. There is NO cure.

    Xeljanz is just a “treatment” that can MAYBE help… but ONLY if you’re willing to risk ALL these ways to DIE horribly.

    Here’s the kicker…

    At the VERY END of the letter… after several feet of warnings on all the ways the drug will KILL you… they declare that “patient safety is of the utmost importance."

    Uh, if safety is “of the utmost importance,” wouldn't it be best for Pfizer to pull the drug off the market???

    Here’s a better plan…

    You can ease this condition dramatically with a combination of probioticsprebiotics (also called fructooligosaccharides, or FOS), upon which probiotics feed and multiply… and a diet that’s careful to avoid food allergies and sensitivities (which can include dairy, among others).

    You may also want to try chlorella.

    Extracted from green algae, it’s extremely rich in bowel-cleaning chlorophyll. And studies have shown that it can help relieve symptoms and improve quality of life.

    Speak to a naturopathic medical doctor who can help you through these changes and keep tabs on your progress.

  3. Beat one of the WORST RISKS of diabetes… without meds!

    Not long ago – you probably even remember the days – diabetes patients looked like Civil War veterans, hobbled by missing feet and legs. They hopped around on peglegs and false feet… and some were confined to wheelchairs. No one uses peglegs or hooks for hands anymore (except pirates). But people are losing limbs all over again, because… An ENTIRE...
  4. Dodge deadly drugs with the 3 most ‘dangerous’ natural cures

    Imagine having a potential game-changer… a single molecule that can achieve what EVERYONE wants. It can slow… maybe even STOP… the aging process. Do you share it with the world?

  8. [EXPOSED] Researchers are FAKING drug success stories in MAJOR scandal

    I’ve been called a kook… a crank… a quack… and a conspiracy theorist. And those are just the ones I can print! It’s all because I have the NERVE to question mainstream “science”… and point out the HUGE and UGLY conflicts of interest that motivate researchers to chase moneyinstead of truth. And if that sounds like a conspiracy theory to...
  9. Mainstream aims to INFILTRATE your next doctor appointment with MISINFORMATION

    They’re not even TRYING to hide it anymore! The mainstream has openly declared war on vitamins and supplements. They’re PROUDLY pushing a prohibition plan that would FORCE nearly every nutrient you use off the market. This newest attack repeats the age-old slam of vitamins as being responsible for “expensive urine.” I wonder if these clowns have seen the price of drugs...
  10. Is the mainstream FINALLY accepting this FORBIDDEN diet?

    Yesterday’s “voodoo”… is tomorrow’s mainstream medicine! And if you need any more proof, just take a look at the latest news on fasting. Let’s start with the fact that there IS news on fasting! Back in the day, fasting was as quacky as it got. It was right up there with bat’s breath and eye of newt. The mainstream wouldn’t...
  11. [Breakthrough] WIPE OUT pain with this ‘miracle’ oil

    It’s the latest craze in healthcare… a proven natural therapy for everything from pain to cancer. But it’s pretty much doomed already. It’s got FOUR big “problems” working against it … It’s safe. It’s cheap. It’s effective. It’s natural. Now, I know that none of that SOUNDS like a problem. Of course, It’s NOT a problem for you –  but it’s a BIG problem for Big Pharma! If it ain't...

  13. Get PERFECT blood sugar… without risky meds

    REALLY???? THIS is what passes for PROGRESS at the FDA? A few years back, the agency screwed up big time by allowing a dangerous drug for diabetes onto the market with little true testing.

  14. ERASE gout pain without DEADLY drugs… in 4 easy steps

    I just love it when the FDA pretends to talk tough… like they’re doing now as they try to “tackle” a gout drug. The drug was DANGEROUS when they approved it. It REMAINED dangerous after it hit the market. And naturally, it’s STILL dangerous today. Nothing’s changed… The drug febuxostat (Uloric) will increase your risk of death from heart disease by more than...

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

    There’s a health crisis hiding in plain sight. Nearly EVERY doctor has SEEN it… yet almost NONE have been able to RECOGNIZE it. And even those who know something’s wrong can’t explain it.

  20. The flu med your doc is pushing on you could make you SICKER

    So many people suffer needlessly every winter… And here’s why. The TOP reason so many people suffer with the agonizing symptoms for days on end… is that we don’t recognize those first warning signs. Sure, it FEELS like something’s wrong… But early on, the flu can masquerade as something more minor. By the time we realize we’ve been bitten by...
