  1. MIRACLE CURE for chronic pain, RA, fibro, and more? [Shocking]

    MIRACLE CURE for chronic pain, RA, fibro, and more? [Shocking]

    You’re not going to BELIEVE what I’m about to recommend to you today.

    There’s NEW HOPE for millions of Americans facing the horrors of some of today’s most agonizing conditions.

    This cutting-edge treatment can help not only with some of the most complicated and difficult diseases in the world

    It can ALSO make some of the most dangerous drugs in the pharmacy OBSOLETE!

    It’s already been used successfully for so-called “mystery” conditions… such as chronic pain, chronic fatigue, and fibromyalgia… as well as autoimmune diseases.

    It’s even shown promise for neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s.

    The SHOCKER?

    It’s NOT a natural therapy, herbal remedy, or non-drug treatment of any kind.

    Just the opposite. It’s a DRUG!

    But in order for it to ERASE any number of troubling conditions that may be PLAGUING you… you’ve got to use it in JUST the right away.

    Here’s how.

    The ONE MIRACLE DRUG I recommend

    It’s the surprising way I’ve helped my own patients with debilitating autoimmune illnesses, including:

    • rheumatoid arthritis
    • ulcerative colitis
    • Hashimoto’s thyroiditis
    • Graves’ disease
    • lupus
    • psoriasis
    • multiple sclerosis
    • and more.

    And it’s exactly what you NEVER expected me to recommend.

    The drug is called naltrexone.

    At normal doses, the drug blocks opioid receptors, which is why it’s often given for opioid addiction.

    But cutting-edge docs have discovered that very, very low doses of it – so low, you’re hardly taking it – can do something even more important.

    It can help BEAT all of those conditions… and more!

    It seems to do three things at once:

    1. NORMALIZE immune function
    2. RESTORE the inflammatory response, and
    3. KICKSTART production of pain-fighting endorphins.

    Now, it doesn’t ALWAYS work for EVERYONE…

    But the effects in many patients -- including people who’ve tried EVERYTHING else first, and failed -- have been nothing short of miraculous.

    You’d THINK the mainstream would be ALL OVER this…

    It’s a drug!

    And if this were a brand-new med capable of raking in billions… I bet they WOULD be.

    But since it was first developed in the 1960s, naltrexone is now a cheap generic.

    NO ONE’S going to make big money off of it… which means NO drug company wants to pump the millions in research needed to win FDA approval for any of these conditions.

    So… as promising as this is, there haven’t been any “major” studies.

    Best we can say is that it seems to work for many people – with some SWEARING by it – and has no real risks.

    Just be sure to work closely with your doc on this.

    And that brings me to the catch. You knew there would be one, right?

    When I say “low dose,” I’m referring to something that, for the most part, doesn’t exist.

    It’s approved and sold at 50 mg. That’s 50 to 100X the 0.5 to 1 mg often used as a starting dose for low-dose treatment.

    Over a period of weeks, patients work their way up to 4.5 mg, which is still less than a TENTH of the “standard” dosage sold in pharmacies.

    Some people are able to make their own low-dose naltrexone by turning those 50mg tablets into a liquid…

    But a much better option is to bring a doctor’s prescription for a compounding pharmacy.

    A compounding pharmacist can custom-blend the right dose to your doctor’s specific orders.

  2. [BUSTED!] Pain ‘advocates’ caught hiding an ugly secret

    Well boo-hoo-hoo!

    Some of today’s “top experts” on pain are practically WEEPING in public… but it’s not because of pain.

    No, it’s because several “pain groups” – organizations that claim to advocate for patients with chronic pain– are going belly-up.

    “Oh no!” the experts are weeping. “Who will speak for the pain patients now???”

    But don’t break out the tissue boxes just yet.

    See, there’s one key reason these groups are shutting down all at once.

    They’ve been BUSTED in a scheme that reveals the ugly truth…

    They NEVER really spoke for patients in the first place!

    Not only have they NOT helped patients -- they’ve HURT millions of Americans and RUINED countless lives.

    Stepping aside is FINALLY doing them a favor.

    If you’re battling pain yourself, you STILL have someone to advocate for you… and help you get RID of it once and for all.

    It’s the same guy who’s been there all along… ME!

    Beat ALL your pains… no sham groups needed

    Earlier this summer, the American Pain Society became the second pain group this year to shutter.

    It filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy protection… and its board voted to shut the whole thing down.

    Like I said, don’t shed a tear for them.

    A lot of their “advocacy” was to ensure that patients were able to “choose” opioid drugs.

    A report in the U.S. Senate last year found they collected close to $1 million in payments from drug companies that make opioids.

    In their public statements, they DOWNPLAYED the risks… and OVERSTATED the benefits of these highly addictive painkillers.

    According to The Guardian, at least one former bigwig admits to having painted a rosy picture in order to get more docs to prescribe opioids.

    Of course, they CLAIM they did nothing wrong. But a pile of lawsuits over their close ties to the opioid industry will tell you otherwise.

    In fact, those legal battles are the main reason they’re going broke!

    And that’s led to their most outrageous claim yet.

    This group has needlessly helped steer Americans intoopioid abuse and addiction

    Yet it now has the NERVE to suggest it’s just “another victim” in the opioid crisis!

    Give me a break!

    They DESERVE to go out of business. They deserve to go to PRISON, if you ask me.

    But rather than face the music and take responsibility, they’re running away.

    It’s not just this organization -- the ENTIRE patient “advocacy” industry is awash in Big Pharma bucks, especially the ones that are supposed to advocate for pain.

    And SEVERAL have already shut down as Big Pharma’s opioid money has been drying up.

    Fortunately, if you’ve got pain… I’ve got answers.

    And NONE of my solutions come courtesy of Opioids Incorporated.

    Many of today’s most common aches and pains can be tamed with topical remedies such as capsaicin and menthol.

    Those include:

    • back pain
    • knee pain
    • muscle soreness, and
    • stiff and creaky joints.

    Look for a quality ointment that contains both ingredients -- along with other natural pain-fighting superstars.

It’s cheap. It’s effective. It’s natural. Now, I know that none of that SOUNDS like a problem. Of course, It’s NOT a problem for you –  but it’s a BIG problem for Big Pharma! If it ain't...
  6. ERASE gout pain without DEADLY drugs… in 4 easy steps

    I just love it when the FDA pretends to talk tough… like they’re doing now as they try to “tackle” a gout drug. The drug was DANGEROUS when they approved it. It REMAINED dangerous after it hit the market. And naturally, it’s STILL dangerous today. Nothing’s changed… The drug febuxostat (Uloric) will increase your risk of death from heart disease by more than...
