Immune Support

Immune support can keep you healthy for life. Learn the best options for natural immune support and how you can maintain youthful vigor well into your golden years here on the NorthStar blog on immune support.

  1. Could this common reflux drug GIVE YOU the ‘stomach flu’?

    In many parts of the country, the “cold” season is giving way to the “cold and wet” season… which will then be replaced by the “just wet” season.

    That means people will spend a LOT of time indoors… cooped up together… probably learning to recognize each other by smell alone over these next couple of months.

    But you could end up sharing something a whole lot worse

    A virus!

    Too much time in closed quarters allows viruses to spread quickly -- especially the nasty germs behind stomach infections.

    But a new study shows that if you get sick, it’s not just each other you can blame.

    It’s your MEDS!

    Acid relief… WITHOUT infections!

    New research finds a scary new risk associated with the PPI meds taken for acid reflux by so many millions -- especially seniors.

    They can lead directly to viral gastroenteritis.

    And the reason is baked into the very nature of how the drugs operate.

    See, that bubbling cauldron of acid in your stomach can BOIL germs alive… including the germs behind nasty stomach infections.

    When all is well, the acid can KILL a “stomach flu” virus -- even if you’ve been exposed, as you often are this time of year.

    But when those acid blockers “work”… and your acid levels drop… the bugs survive.

    And when they survive, you get sick.

    REALLY sick.

    Like, I’m-just-gonna-spend-the-night-here-in-the-bathroom-so-I-don’t-miss-the-toilet sick.

    It’s so bad, the new study finds that taking PPI drugs will increase your risk of the acute viral form of gastroenteritis by whopping 80%.

    That’s overall.

    In seniors, the risk is even bigger – because these drugs will DOUBLE your odds of facing this nasty infection!

    The biggest jump in risk is in winter…

    But other studies have also found that PPIs will increase the risk of any number of infections that could STRIKE at any time of year.

    And that includes one of the worst of all -- C. diff, which has been turning into one of the nation’s top superbug threats.

    One study found PPIs increase the risk of C. diff by as much as 60%.

    Trust me – a little extra acid isn’t nearly as bad as “deadly diarrhea.”

    For some quick acid relief, try licorice… and I don’t mean the candy. You want an extract of licorice root sold as DGL.

    But to get complete control over long-term issues with stomach acid, you need more than just that.

    Try these two natural therapies…

    • Acidophilus: Don’t just swallow it, as you normally would. Pop open the capsules into your mouth and into your saliva to absorb and swallow.
    • Digestive enzymes: These will improve digestion, and ultimately stop acid from bubbling up where it shouldn’t. Look for a formula that includes betaine hydrochloride.

    These two steps will work MOST of the time. But not ALL of the time.

    If you’re still having problems, get tested for other possible causes of reflux… including an undiagnosed ulcer and/or food sensitivities.

  2. Could the coronavirus cure the world’s looking for be RIGHT under our noses?

    Right now… as coronavirus rapidly spreads around the world… some of the leading minds in medicine are working desperately on a cure for this deadly disease.

    And so far, they’ve come up with…


    There’s NO treatment… NO cure… and NOTHING in the pipelines.

    But I’ve got what they don’t…

    A way to help save you and your loved ones from ANY VIRUS.

    This approach has been around some 80 years now… and it’s already available everywhere!

    But it’s just too darned cheap for the mainstream!

    How to beat almost ANY viral infection

    I’m not yet convinced how serious coronavirus is…

    But the mainstream media has jumped on the bandwagon with its breathless headlines about how Big Pharma is trying to cook up a cure.

    And OF COURSE they’re already talking about a vaccine

    Though it’ll come far too late… do far too little… and be totally untested… if it ever gets released at all.

    But there’s a treatment ALREADY available… right now…

    And if the coronavirus situation is as dire as they’re saying it is, this treatment could SAVE LIVES.

    It’s one they WON’T talk about… investigate… or even try out…

    Despite ZERO risk and LOADS of solid scientific evidence that it CAN work.

    They’re covering their eyes for the ugliest reason possible…

    It’s TOO CHEAP!

    It’s ordinary vitamin C. The only difference is that you need to take it at very high doses.

    If you’ve ever taken too much oral C, you know what happens.

    Better keep close to a toilet!

    In many cases, when you’re very sick, high oral doses of C won’t lead to the infamous diarrhea. It’s as if your body is putting it all on hold while it fights off the infection.

    But there’s another reason to SKIP oral capsules

    Your body needs to digest them first, which wastes precious time – especially when your life’s on the line.

    Intravenous vitamin C, on the other hand, SKIPS your stomach… and goes DIRECTLY into your bloodstream, where it begins to work IMMEDIATELY against all manner of infections.

    And when I say “immediately,” I mean I’ve seen patients recover from some of the nastiest illnesses in a matter of hours.

    The downside is that this has NEVER been tested specifically against the novel coronavirus making news today.

    But I can’t think of a single virus that HASN’T been wiped out by high-dose IVC -- including the common cold (which, by the way, can also be caused by a type of coronavirus).

    And I can’t think of a single reason in the world why any doc would deny you access to it. Even if he’s convinced it won’t work… he’d have to admit there’s ZERO chance of harm.

    And certainly, this isn’t a one-or-the-other situation…

    If you have coronavirus… or any other viral infection for that matter… you don’t have to skip ANY treatment they want to give you.

    Just get the IVC alongside it.

    And if they’re still deciding what to do, have them give you the intravenous C in the meantime.

    Here’s the LEAST surprising news I’ve heard all winter… This year’s flu shot’s a flop. It’s a failure… a fiasco… a… well, I think I’ve better stop the “f” words right there.

It seems to...

    We all know the routine and what we should do. But let’s be honest – it doesn't always happen. You’re busy, and over-scheduled, and always on the go. It’s a lot easier to grab something quick, than to plan a well-balanced meal every single time you sit down to eat. Continue reading

  15. Build the best defense against deadly CRE superbugs

    I first warned you about carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae (CRE) well over a year ago. On the superbug block, these nasty bugs are the worst of the worst… a true devil among demons.

    Like other superbug bullies, CRE is resistant to antibiotics. But CRE isn’t only resistant to the run-of-the-mill antibiotics, this ugly bug laughs in the face of the “last-resort” drug carbapenem.

    Now you may never have heard of carbapenem before—it’s not exactly a household name—and good luck pronouncing it (much less enterobacteriaceai!). But this life-saving drug is the antibiotic that docs turn to when nothing else works. And for many with critical infections it can literally mean the difference between life and death.
