  1. 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.

    If he gives you a painkiller… he’s saying he can’t actually FIX the pain… but, again, is just biding time to see if it goes away on its own.

    And if he gives you an antidepressant… but you’re NOT depressed?

    Well, friend, he may as well just slap you right across the face – because he’s saying that WHATEVER you’re suffering from is ALL in your head!

    There’s no condition where they do that more than fibromyalgia.

    But if you have this condition, it’s NOT in your head. And you DON’T need an antidepressant.

    The problem isn’t YOU.

    It’s a REAL condition… confirmed by tests in the world’s leading medical institutions.

    Now, new research confirms something else…

    There IS a way to get the relief you deserve… with no drugs needed!

    The PINE BARK secret for fibromyalgia relief

    Fibromyalgia isn’t just pain.

    It’s pain that can strike ANYWHERE and EVERYWHERE

    And includes burning sensationsnumbnessstabbingtinglingelectrical shocks… and more.

    And that’s STILL not all of it.

    It can also trigger migrainesfatiguebrain fog… and sleep disorders

    Just to name a few.

    Doctors are often STUMPED – and some lash out at YOU with bogus “treatments,” such as antidepressant drugs.

    But new research reveals a much better solution – one that can truly treat the condition without side effects, and without insulting your intelligence.

    It’s a patented form of pine bark extract called Pycnogenol.

    In the new study, less than 1 in 5 patients in the control group had any improvement in pain from stiffness when they followed the usual advice about stretching, relaxing, and aerobics.

    But following that same advice… along with taking Pycnogenol… made a WORLD of difference

    With more than HALF getting relief.

    It was almost the same story in patients with pain from fatigue

    Of those given the Pycnogenol, nearly 60% improved… versus just 14% of those following the usual advice.

    In other words, it was 3X more effective for stiffness pain… and more than 4X better for fatigue-related pain.

    The extract was also…

    • 3X better for migraines
    • 4X more effective for other headaches
    • 10X better for brain fog, and
    • 2X as effective for fatigue.

    And it was far better for fighting off stress… and preventing the “pins and needles” feelings that plagues so many people with fibromyalgia.

    Now, ALL of these women who participated in the study showed ELEVATED levels of oxidative stress at the beginning…

    And Pycnogenol is a strong antioxidant known to HUNT DOWN free radicals to stop them from short-circuiting your cells.

    So that may be what’s going on behind the scenes with Pycnogenol and fibro.

    Here’s the best part…

    Pycnogenol is already widely used around the world. It has a long and spotless track record for both safety and effectiveness… and for dozens of common conditions and complaints.

    In other words, this ISN’T something new and weird with unknown risks.

    It’s something that’s been tried and tested – and passed with flying colors.

    So, if you have fibromyalgia yourself… and have gotten the runaround from your own doctor… consider giving this stuff a shot.

    It’s pretty widely available from established supplement makers like Swanson… Nature’s Way… Puritans Pride… Life Extension… and more.

  2. Is this the NEXT pandemic? [Here’s how to BEAT it!]

    They fill our heads every single day with DOOMGLOOMFEAR… and DESTRUCTION.

    And if you listen to the manipulative politicians and their lapdogs in the media…

    NONE of it EVER gets any better!

    They want us COWERING in fear… so we OBEY their endless nonsensical commands.

    Well, friend, new research reveals the TRUE toll of a nation on constant edge.

    Anxiety levels are THROUGH THE ROOF!

    Mood disorders are outta control – and if you ask me, it’s only gonna get WORSE from here.

    But there’s a way to take yourself OUT of this crazy system…

    A way to protect yourself… fight back… and feel just great in the process.

    The TRUE toll of today’s CRAZINESS

    All through my career… for decades now… one number held steady.

    At any given time, about 10% of Americans were battling some form of mood disorder such as anxiety or depression.

    That number alone has made it a MAJOR health concern – not to mention a money-making market for mood meds.

    But over the past year, we’ve blown WAY past that number.

    Today, 40% of Americans – nearly HALF of us! – are struggling with anxiety and/or depression!

    And for the sour icing on this very rotten cake, more than a third are battling sleeping and/or eating problems… either on their own, or along with depression and/or anxiety.

    To put it bluntly… to sum it up in three words…

    We’re a MESS!

    The good news is that seniors are slightly more resilient than everyone else.

    OF COURSE we are -- this ain’t our first rodeo.

    But at least 1 in 4 older adults are now struggling with anxiety and/or depression.

    And you can bet your tail the drug industry is LOVING every minute of this…

    Because it’s a golden opportunity to get millions of new patients onto medications that many of them will keep taking… and taking… and taking.

    Don’t let them MANIPULATE you into these meds, my friend.

    There are BETTER ways to cope with ALL of these problems… and then some.

    Start, of course, by turning OFF the news -- because the fearmongers on the cable networks aren’t interested in giving you the truth. They just want to deliver a constant sense of impending doom to keep you tuned in for the latest.

    Check the news online from sources YOU trust… and then do your own homework on all of it.

    And all 3 of the key conditions on the rise as a result of the current chaos have natural options that are safe, proven, and effective:

    1. ANXIETY: The neurotransmitter GABA can help take the edge off and deliver the calm you’re looking for. Minerals, especially calcium and magnesium, can also help… and don’t dismiss herbal teas, especially chamomile.
    2. DEPRESSION: Make sure you’re getting your B vitamins, especially B12 (if you’re seriously low you may need injections). St. John’s wort is another great option for mood disorders, as well as 5-HTP.
    3. SLEEP: That same 5-HTP is also an excellent natural sleep aid. But if you’re a little older, there’s at least some chance your sleep issues are caused by low levels of the “sleep hormone” melatonin. I like the spray kind of supplemental melatonin -- a spritz or two in the mouth gets absorbed instantly so it goes to work right away.

    You’ve been sold out, my friend. And I bet you didn’t even notice it!
