Herbs & Supplements

The variety of vitamins and natural supplements available today can be confusing and overwhelming. The NorthStar blog on herbs and supplements provides the latest updates on what's out there, what works, what doesn't and why.

  1. How to FIGHT DIRTY against cancer… and WIN!

    Sometimes you’ve gotta fight dirty to win – especially when you’re fighting a dirty enemy.

    And inside your body, there’s no cell that fights dirtier than cancer cells.

    They use EVERY trick in the book to hide… grow… spread… and kill.

    But today, I’m going to give you the weapon you need to fight back

    And it’s something that EVERY DOCTOR in the country has access to, right now.

    In a moment, I’ll give you exactly what you need to tell your doctor so he can offer it to you.

    He may not love it. He might say it’s pointless. He might even think you’re a little bit of a kook.

    But odds are, he’ll also agree that it’s harmless… so he shouldn’t give you too much grief over trying it.

    And when he sees what happens next…

    Well, let’s just say your own doctor could turn into a true believer himself!

    A cancer-destroying VITAMIN?

    Like I said, cancer fights dirty.

    In a battle like that, you need a weapon that’s not afraid to fight dirty back – and that’s where this tumor-fighting secret is at its best.

    It’s almost like a double agent.

    Cancer sees it and THINKS it’s a friend… and invites it right inside the cells. It soaks up it like sugar.

    And that’s when this double agent rips off its mask and reveals its true face.

    It’s not a friend at all – well, not to cancer.

    It’s an enemy – one that then destroys the cancer from the inside.

    And by the time the cancer cells figure out what’s going on, it’s already too late!

    So, what’s this weapon called?

    You’re going to laugh, because it’s something you already know pretty well…

    Vitamin C!

    But it’s NOT the kind you get from orange juice… or even a vitamin pill… because you just can’t reach the levels needed to fight cancer that way.

    You have to get it intravenously – the only way to rapidly raise blood levels high enough.

    Along with fighting the cancer directly, intravenous vitamin C can also:

    • ENHANCE chemo to make it more effect
    • ELIMINATE sickness from chemo
    • FIGHT side effects of radiation, and
    • HELP you heal faster after cancer surgery.

    Even the feds are starting to admit that IVC is helpful in many forms of cancer, especially for dealing with chemo…

    And it’s gaining a grudging acceptance among mainstream docs as a result.

    Yet most STILL won’t offer it!

    You have to ask, and you may even have to guide them through it. (Teaching the doctor about medicine – how ’bout that?)

    So, here’s what you do: Tell them you want the Riordan IVC protocol.

    If they know what it is, you’re all set.

    If they’ve never heard of it, no worries: It’s available for free online.

    You can search Google for it, print it, and then bring it to your doctor.

    He SHOULD be able to make it happen – but if he’s still struggling to figure it out, visit an experienced integrative oncologist.

  2. EVERY senior needs this ‘repair kit’ nutrient to SLASH risk of death

    You have a repair kit in your closet… in the garage and/or shed… and I’m guessing one in your car, too.

    You no doubt have what you need to fix anything -- whether it’s a torn shirt, a broken pipe, a flat tire, or a creaky door.

    But what if I told you there’s a repair kit for your BODY, too?

    There IS one – one that can UNDO the damage of everything normally blamed on age and disease.

    And you won’t believe how easy it is to get!

    EXTEND your life with this overlooked vitamin

    This REPAIR KIT nutrient is plain ol’ vitamin C.

    But don’t dismiss it just because it’s so simple and basic.

    It’s also so FORGOTTEN, too!

    Many people don’t even bother with it – but research reported on by Life Extension showed what happens when you make an effort to raise your levels.

    Over the course of more than 16 years, folks with the HIGHEST vitamin C levels had a…

    • 25% lower risk of death from ANY cause
    • 28% lower risk of death from cancer
    • 28% lower risk of death from stroke, and
    • 35% lower risk of death from heart disease.

    Seriously, if a drug did that, how much do you think they’d charge for it?

    Whatever you’re guessing, I’d say double it. Maybe triple it. Heck, quadruple it… and they’ll still probably charge more.

    But YOU can get it… right NOW… for literal pennies.

    The study theorizes that the reason for the benefit is that vitamin C fights off oxidative stressprotecting your DNA from damage and enhancing the endothelial layer of the blood vessels to fight off heart disease.

    And sure, it’s a neat antioxidant.

    But it’s also the #1 component of collagen, which is top repair protein in the body.

    Anything that needs fixin’ needs good collagen – and the only way to get good collagen is with the right levels of vitamin C.

    That makes vitamin C the most important tool in your body’s repair kit.

    And along with the benefits found in the new study, higher (intravenous) levels can carry out even more complicated “repairs.”

    Specifically, it can KILL OFF nearly any bacteria… and WIPE OUT cancer cells (and almost any type!).

    Those cancer cells in particular LOVE vitamin C. Well… they THINK they do. They suck it up like sugar, pulling it in faster than normal cells.

    But they essentially POISON themselves with it in the process.

    The C disrupts their cellular metabolism, and they DIE.

    So, for general daily support, protection against infection, good heart health and an overall longer, healthier life… boost your C.

    If it makes you gassy or whatever, split up the doses so you’re taking it three or four times a day. Over time, you may build tolerance and can handle fewer, higher doses.

    And if you’re fighting off a serious infection or a “deadly” disease like cancer, get yourself hooked up with intravenous C from a naturopathic medical doctor.

  11. What to Watch for When Buying Supplements

    Buying SupplementsSupplement Interactions: What to Watch for When Buying Supplements

    When most people decide on which supplement to take, they focus on how it can improve their health. And that’s fair.

    You’re taking supplements to make you healthier, after all. But supplement interactions with other drugs is important to consider as well.

    The last thing you need is for one of the supplements you’re taking to exacerbate another – often entirely unrelated – condition.

    In this article, I’m going to talk about some of the most common supplements people take – and the supplement interactions you could be facing.

    Astaxanthin – If anyone ever truly finds a fountain of youth, I’d be willing to bet it includes astaxanthin. That’s how amazing this anti-aging supplement is. You’re still going to want to be on the lookout for these supplement interactions, though. If you’re taking blood thinners, blood pressure, or blood sugar medications, talk to your doctor about taking astaxanthin. Because it can lower all of those on its own, it may cause unhealthy drops when combined with medications. It also has the potential to lower serum calcium levels, so use caution taking astaxanthin if you have osteoporosis, or other calcium-related conditions. Continue reading
