  1. [URGENT] How QUITTING an opioid could WRECK your health

    They rushed to get you ON the painkillers… and now they’re rushing to get you OFF.

    And in both cases, they’re not only WRONG…

    They’re leading to TRAGIC consequences for America’s seniors, who are caught in the middle of an increasingly BIZARRE and totally UNSCIENTIFIC approach to pain.

    Yes, friend, this one’s about the opioid drugs that have sucked the soul out of entire American communities.

    This one has hit patients battling nearly EVERY form of agony:

    • back pain
    • knee arthritis
    • neck pain
    • neuropathy
    • migraines
    • injuries
    • …and more.

    If you’re NOT taking them now… make sure you NEVER get started.

    But if you or a loved one ARE on one of them right now… there’s something ELSE you need to know about these drugs.

    Quitting can be just a dangerous!

    The looming opioid ‘cliff’… and how NOT to fall off it

    You’ve seen it in movies, when junkies on hard drugs howl in pain on a dirty mattress as they go through the DTs after they’re cut off from their supply.

    Well, friend, that ain’t just in pictures.

    That can happen when you’re cut off from opioid drugs suddenly -- especially if you’ve had high-dose and/or long-term use.

    Common withdrawal symptoms include:

    • more pain
    • suicidal thoughts
    • psychological distress
    • anxiety
    • nausea
    • sweats and chills, and
    • rapid heartbeat.

    This isn’t a movie. This is the NIGHTMARE facing ordinary Americans, as a new report finds the rug’s being YANKED right out from under them.

    They’re calling it the “opioid cliff” -- and right now the majority of pain patients are PLUNGING off it.

    According to this latest report, the number of Medicare patients PULLED off opioids has increased by nearly 50% over 5 years…

    And in 80% of cases, it’s cold turkey (or close to it)… despite the well-known problems of this approach.

    Even the guidelines urge docs to ease off slowly to help patients back into normalcy.

    Clearly, just as they DIDN’T get the message about the dangers of opioids in the first place, they’re NOT getting the message about how to help patients quit right now!

    If you’re on these meds yourself, it’s long past time to take a DIFFERENT approach.

    Just don’t go it alone. And definitely DON’T jump off that cliff.  

    If your doc hasn’t suggested it yet, ask about tapering. And if he tries to pull the plug on you at once, DEMAND that tapered treatment.

    But don’t stop there.

    The opioids might be gone… but your pain will still be around…

    And you DESERVE relief. Real, safe, lasting relief.

    The best approach will depend on your specific pain, but some good places to start include…

    • B vitamins for nerve pain
    • platelet-rich plasma for slow-healing injuries
    • acupuncture and/or massage for back and knee pain
    • UC-II collagen for arthritis damage
    • drug-free topical ointments for quick on-the-spot relief from life’s everyday aches.

    If your doc ISN’T open to these safe, proven pain treatments… tell him to go take a flying leap

    And find an integrative doc who’s NOT going to leave you high and dry.

  2. [New Report] The danger that’s hiding in your own medicine chest!

    The establishment will NEVER miss a chance to threaten… cajole… and manipulate the masses when it comes to vitamins, supplements, and other natural therapies.

    The media dials up the fear factor

    Mainstream doctors warn against them…

    And the feds issue nonsensical threats over them.

    But a new analysis of calls and cases from the American Association of Poison Control Centers shows the REAL threat.

    And it’s NOT your vitamins, my friend.

    As you’ll see in a moment, THEY’RE safer than a newborn kitten!

    But something else ISN’T.

    It’s medication. And some of the BIGGEST risks come from the nation’s MOST POPULAR drugs!

    Here’s what the new study EXPOSES. And, more importantly, here’s what you need to replace that threat.

    How to REPLACE America’s 3 MOST POISONOUS drugs

    The numbers are in, and the numbers don’t lie.

    Data from 2019 calls and cases logged by America’s 55 poison control centers finds NOT ONE DEATH caused by supplements.

    I’m talking about vitaminsmineralsherbal medicinehomeopathic remedies… and more.

    No deaths from the basics like vitamin D… all the way through to “exotic”-sounding stuff like yerba mate.

    In contrast, the Top 5 most common reasons for those poison control cases, in order, are:

    1. pain meds
    2. household cleaning substances
    3. cosmetics/personal care products
    4. antidepressants
    5. sedatives/hypnotics/antipsychotics

    The three DRUG categories on that list are responsible for more than 1 in 5 cases

    With antidepressant-related cases specifically growing MOST rapidly at nearly 4% per year over the last 10 years.

    Those are cases where the drug went “wrong” -- like an overdose or a bad reaction.

    But even when they’re used correctly… even when they’re used “normally”… even when everything is going “well” with these drugs…

    They can STILL make you more miserable than a Grand Canyon mule… with ordinary and expected side effects that include fatigue, weight gain, sexual dysfunction, personality changes, and more.

    Here’s the tragedy in all this…

    NONE of those cases needed to happen

    Because EACH class of drugs has a better, safer option.

    For life’s everyday aches – including quick relief of back and knee pain – try a topical remedy built around proven ingredients such as MSM, capsaicin, and menthol.

    Other options will depend on the pain.

    Chronic back pain, for example, can be treated with chiropractic/osteopathic manipulationmassage… and/or acupuncture.

    And if you have arthritis, look into a natural therapy such as UC-II collagen.

    Better options for mood disorders include high-dose fish oilB vitamins… and natural herbal therapies such as St. John’s wort. Speak to a doc about that last one, as it doesn’t always play well with some meds.

    For common conditions like stress, anxiety, and sleep… you can find solutions that are SAFER than sedatives, like the neurotransmitter GABA.

    It’s s a great option… especially if you have more than one of these conditions at any given time.

    For common sleep struggles on their own, try the “sleep hormone” melatonin -- especially the spray form, which gets absorbed right away so it kicks in faster.
