  1. Bad skin… or BAD MEDS??? Common drugs that can trigger psoriasis

    They CLAIM your meds are there to PROTECT you…

    To SOLVE your problems…

    And to make you BETTER.

    But if you’ve ever had the sneaking suspicion that any of your prescription drugs could be actually CAUSING more problems than they SOLVE

    Then I’ve got a new report you need to see.

    Because it CONFIRMS some of your worst fears, revealing how medications could trigger a common problem that many people find…

    • painful
    • debilitating
    • embarrassing
    • and more.

    I’m talking about psoriasis.

    In most cases, people believe this condition is caused by poor genetics… or maybe an immune system gone funky.

    Allow me to share what could be the TRUE cause of psoriasis.

    More importantly, let me give some BETTER options than the ones most commonly behind this condition.

    Top 3 drug culprits you may not need

    Studies show that nearly a third of all cases of psoriasis are “late onset” ones – starting past the age of 40.

    The prime window for the onset of these late cases is 57 to 60 years old.

    Hmmm… what typically happens past the age of 40? And what REALLY kicks in from the mid-50s on?

    You guessed it…

    MEDS, MEDS, and MEDS.

    The new report from MedicalNewsToday names drugs often suspected in psoriasis cases…

    And they’re meds that more people take during “middle age” and beyond.

    They include 3 prime suspects:

    • Blood pressure meds: Both beta blockers and ACE inhibitors – two of the most common classes of drugs for hypertension – have been linked to psoriasis, with beta blockers in particular linked to plaque psoriasis, the most common form of the condition.
    • Painkillers: NSAIDs in particular can cause psoriasis if you don’t already have it… and worsen the condition if you do.
    • Benzodiazepines: Honestly, if you’re on these anxiety meds, psoriasis might be the least of your worries. For seniors, they can cause cognitive problems, falls, pneumonia and a whole mess of nightmares.

    Other potential drugs behind psoriasis include antibiotics, antifungals, antimalarials, TNF inhibitors, and biologics

    Each of which has MUCH BETTER and FAR SAFER options.

    So if you’re struggling with this condition, speak to your doc about the meds you’re taking… and see what other alternatives you might be able to choose from.

    In the meantime, I’ve got some ideas for ya.

    Magnesium, lycopene, weight loss, and a daily walk can all help cut BP about as well as or better than many common meds.

    Better options for pain include pregnenolone, bromelain, boswellia, capsaicin, MSM, and DMSO… as well as “bodywork” treatments such as chiropractic, physical therapy, massage, stretching, and more. (And don’t forget acupuncture.)

    If you need some help relaxing, turn to herbals such as rhodiola or valerian.

    And no matter what the cause of your psoriasis… there are some nondrug ways to get relief

    Starting with phototherapy.

    Sure, it’s just light -- but it works. A 2017 analysis found it delivered at least a 75% improvement in patients with moderate to severe psoriasis.

  2. BEAT diabetes with this ALL-NATURAL trio!

    If you’ve ever played Monopoly with a kid, you know what happens when you land on a space that’s going to wipe you out.

    It’s the happiest day of their little lives!

    They’re giddy as they take all your fake money… practically throwing it in the air and rolling around in it like Scrooge McDuck.

    The “adults” in drug company headquarters may not ACT that way. But they probably FEEL just as gleeful and giddy when they see the number of new patients with diabetes rolling in.

    You’ve landed on a bad square…

    Your health is on the line

    You’re about to dump TONS of money on this disease…

    And those ghouls couldn’t be happier!

    But new research reveals a way you can rain on their parade.

    It’s a natural combo that can reduce your need for meds… and keep them from getting their greedy little mitts on your hard-earned cash.

    Play your cards right… and you might even BEAT ’EM at their own game, too!

    Up-and-coming combo for blood sugar control

    Conventional docs almost always start you off on metformin -- which means they’re ALREADY starting off on the wrong foot.

    The drug can leave you weak, bloated, gassy… and struggling with low levels of vitamin B12 needed for mood, memory, nerve protection, and more.

    That’s the “cheap stuff.” It’s been around forever, is available generically, and no one’s really making much coin off it anymore.

    It’s what happens NEXT that has drug company bosses salivating.

    The metformin doesn’t do the trick anymore for blood sugar… so your doc prescribes an “add-on.”

    That’s the newermore expensive… and way more dangerous classes of medications…

    Ones that are linked to everything from weird infections in your groin (seriously!) to amputations of the toes, feet, and legs (YIKES!!!).

    But the latest research reveals a different kind of “add-on” -- one that WON’T leave you exposed to ANY of that.

    Because it’s NOT a drug. It’s a set of 3 natural therapies:

    1. berberine: for blood sugar control
    2. hesperidin: for reduced inflammation and stronger blood vessels
    3. chromium: for carbohydrate metabolism and blood sugar control.

    This trio was tested against a placebo in patients with diabetes who were ALSO taking metformin.

    Together, the threesome led to a nice dip in both HbA1c and fasting blood glucose levels in patients taking metformin.

    That means these folks would then be less likely to line the pockets of the Big Pharma salesforce in the greedy scenario I just described to you above.

    But hang on a moment here…

    Because I think we can make this even BETTER.

    Heck, I think with a little care and caution… and by working with a naturopathic physician… you not only won’t need a NEW, ADDITIONAL diabetes drug.

    You may even be able to ELIMINATE metformin!

    DITCH the carbs from your diet. That one move alone… more than ANY med or supplement out there… will bring your glucose back into line.

    The three compounds in the new study, especially berberine and chromium, are also excellent natural starting points for additional glucose control.

    Ditto for cinnamon.

    And most people with diabetes could use some extra vitamins B3, C, and D.

    It won’t happen overnight. But given a little time, this could not only help you find a way OFF your meds… but could even lead to a complete remission of your diabetes.

    Just be sure you don’t quit any meds… or start anything new… without talking to your doctor first.

  5. New drug research STALLED… only AFTER getting the green light?!

    Remember how I recently shared with you the UGLY truth about the OVERHYPED Alzheimer’s drug approved over the summer? It FLUNKED the studies that were supposed to “prove” it worked.

Well, friend, new research shows...

    Call me crazy… Call me old-fashioned… Call me a hopelessly antiquated stick-in-the-mud if you want to… But I thought the whole point of a drug approval is that the company has to PROVE the thing works BEFORE it's given the OK. Turns out that's just wishful thinking in today's America. Because the FDA just approved a new drug for Alzheimer's...

  20. REAL relief from fibromyalgia pain and fatigue [FINALLY!]

    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.
