  1. When NSAIDs could be the WRONG CHOICE for you

    The advice is confusing and frustrating – and right at a time when Americans need it straight.

    Instead, they’re left bewildered and even frightened.

    Can you take an NSAID like ibuprofen for a fever?

    Or is there ever a time when you might avoid it and try something… ANYTHING… else???

    Well, friend, you’ve come to the right place today -- because MY advice on ibuprofen hasn’t changed a whit.

    I’ve NEVER recommended the stuff!

    Even when you absolutely need a mainstream med… as a fever reducer or pain reliever… I wouldn’t put ibuprofen anywhere near the top of the list.

    So, let’s take a closer look at WHY this drug… and even the entire NSAID class… is bad news.

    And more importantly, let’s go over your other… BETTER… and far safer choices for everyday use.

    Ibuprofen is bad news

    Millions of people around the world turn to ibuprofen daily for everything from aches to fevers

    And almost none of them realize it’s NOT the “safe and effective” med it’s been made out to be.

    A report a few years back in the BMJ… about as mainstream a journal as you could possibly name… found that taking NSAIDs can increase the risk of a heart attack by between 20 and 50%.

    That’s not a long-term risk. That’s after taking these drugs for just ONE WEEK.

    Another study found prescription-strength forms of the drugs can increase the risk of a dangerous irregular heartbeat condition called atrial fibrillation.

    And if you have heart failure, NSAIDs are high on the list of meds you should never, ever take – because they can make the condition WORSE!

    They can also:

    • INCREASE the risk of stroke
    • RAISE blood pressure
    • DAMAGE the lining of your gut
    • and more.

    For those folks ALWAYS taking the meds… for chronic pain conditions like knee osteoarthritis… they could see a spike in ALL of the above risks.

    This is why I’d recommend just about ANYTHING else instead of an NSAID -- unless you’re in the rare group of patients sensitive to all other medications and HAVE to take it as a last resort for a short-term problem.

    For a chronic battle with arthritis, UC-II collagen can help rebuild and repair your joints – so well in fact, that one study found it’s 240% more effective than glucosamine and chondroitin.

    And for fever, first things first: Call your doc. There’s a lot going around out there right now -- and if you have a fever, he needs to tell you what to do.

    But sometimes you can’t wait for your doc, and you’ve got to do something NOW.

    I’m not going to say acetaminophen (a.k.a. Tylenol) is much better. That’s a drug that cause plenty of problems of its own, especially if you take too much (which is incredibly easy to do without even knowing it).

    But if you’re facing a high fever… and need a med to bring it down in a hurry… then acetaminophen's another option right now.

  2. [INSANE] Mainstream plots to DELIBERATELY expose you to MORE radiation

    There’s ONE THING standing between you and a potential case of cancer years from now….

    So naturally, the mainstream wants to LITERALLY strip it right off your body!

    There’s a new push by the establishment to do away with the lead aprons used during imaging tests.

    They’re what’s supposed to stop stray radiation beams from going where they shouldn’t.

    During dental X-rays, these bibs could give you at least a little (better than nothing!) protection from conditions such as thyroid cancer.

    For scans lower down, those same aprons will protect your “junk” from some of the nightmare cancers we all fear.

    And for all scans, in general, it can protect your bones, organs, and more from radiation… cellular damage… and disease.

    But a group of radiologists now says it’s time to DO AWAY with them.

    What could POSSIBLY go wrong???

    What imaging tests REALLY do to you

    There’s absolutely no denying it… not even from the most mainstream of all mainstream voices.

    Americans are exposed to far too much radiation…

    Especially from imaging tests such as X-ray and CT scans.

    There’s also no denying that all that radiation leads to cancer in some people, years later.

    One study found CT scans done in just the year 2007 alone would lead to 29,000 future cancers.

    Given that it’s now 13 years later, people are almost certainly living with those cancers right now… and some may have died from them.

    For what?

    Not as much as you’d think, given the risks… as studies show that many imaging tests are completely unnecessary.

    What I’m getting at here, is virtually EVERYONE agrees on two things.

    • Radiation is dangerous.
    • We’re exposed to far too much of it.

    But instead of cutting that exposure, they’re cooking up a plan to INCREASE it.

    Because as I mentioned, now they want to do away with lead aprons, claiming they don’t help as much as people think.

    The new report claims the aprons are:

    • Difficult to position: When they’re not placed right, they won’t protect what they’re supposed to.
    • Could block the area being screened: That could lead to another test and more radiation overall.
    • Might mess up the machine’s automated exposure controls: It could detect the thick apron and automatically fire off more radiation to get through it.

    Notice the issue here? NOT ONE of these problems suggests lead aprons are ineffective against radiation when used right.

    The key is in those last three words… when used right.

    Seems to me the best, safest, and easiest solution would be to make sure EVERYONE using these machines is trained correctly… and that the “automatic” settings are re-automated.

    But this is the mainstream… and they love to throw the baby out with the bathwater.

    So, here’s my advice…

    If your doc wants an imaging test, ask if you REALLY need it… or if there’s a “wait and see” option.

    If he really needs an image, an ultrasound or MRI may do the trick in some cases – and neither of those uses radiation.

    And if you DO need an X-ray or CT, don’t trust ANYONE who says you don’t need a lead bib. Insist on wearing it for your own protection.

    Dr. Allan Spreen

  17. Sugar can cause memory loss

    Eating sweets can rot your brain

    Sugar rots teeth. But it also rots something far more important: your brain cells.

    Diabetics have a higher risk of dementia because of their sky-high blood sugar levels -- but you don't have to be a diabetic yourself to suffer from the brain-rotting damage of sugar.

    Even slight elevations in blood sugar can cause memory problems. Continue reading

  18. Who is Dr. Allan Spreen, the doctor behind NorthStar Nutritionals?

    You’ve seen his name on the NorthStar Nutritionals blog and web site. You’ve felt his enthusiasm practically burst off the page. You’ve read his suggestions and come to trust his opinions. But maybe you’re still wondering, who exactly is Dr. Allan Spreen, the doctor behind NorthStar Nutritionals?

    What Is Dr. Allan Spreen’s Background?

    Dr. Spreen’s fascination with optimal health started back when he was a high school diver in the 1960s. As his athletic career grew, so did his desire to understand health and athletic performance. While he was an athlete throughout high school and college, by the 1970s he was also beginning to transition from athlete to coach. This new position of coach, guide, and mentor, as well as performing at an even higher level of competition himself, drove him to learn even more about physical performance for young athletes. But it was a personal experience that fueled a passion in him. In the 1960s, when his sister was a sophomore in college, she was diagnosed as schizophrenic. The consulting physician not only disparaged the family by blaming them, but insisted that the damage was done and there was nothing that could help the young woman. He insisted she would spend the rest of her life institutionalized. Luckily, the family refused to listen and found Dr. Abram Hoffer in Canada, who was treating schizophrenics with high doses of B-3 and other supplements. Within two years, Allan Spreen’s sister wasn’t just functioning, but was in law school and headed to a bright future. And the passion for finding alternative, non-conventional ways to achieve health was born in Spreen. By the late 1970s, he realized this passion was leading him to medical school. In 1982, he graduated with his medical degree from East Tennessee State University and went on to become a general practitioner. The combination of medical acumen and athletic prowess drew the attention of the U.S. National and Olympic diving teams, both as an athlete and a coach. As an athlete in his own right, he became a medal winning diving champion. By 1991, he had transitioned to coaching the U.S. national diving teams. And by 1996, he had become known as the Nutrition Physician, sharing his knowledge not only with athletes, but with us here at NorthStar Nutritionals – and with you. Dr. Spreen also serves on the advisory panel of the Health Sciences Institute.

    What Does Dr. Allan Spreen Believe?

    Most importantly, Dr. Spreen believes we can all be healthy. Healthy to a degree most of us have never even imagined. By educating ourselves. By asking questions. By taking control of our own bodies. Too many supplement companies jump on a bandwagon because an ingredient is popular or a mineral is in the news or because a vitamin is the current fad. So these companies quickly throw this new ingredient into their products, without researching quality or proper amounts or even interactions.  And people take the pill because someone tells them to. This goes against everything Dr. Allan Spreen believes. First, he insists that all NorthStar Nutritionals products have quality ingredients. The purest, most effective nutrients available to us. Second, he knows the most impactful amounts of those nutrients. And what he doesn’t know, he takes the time to learn. Which means the products he formulates and endorses are the best possible combinations they can be, to help you achieve Dr. Spreen’s ultimate objective – your maximum health. At which point, he brings you the information he is confident about, and the products he can stand behind, in order for you to make the best decisions for you and your health. Becausethat’s what Dr. Allan Spreen believes in, and works for – you and your good health.
