  1. [Game-changer?] Big Pharma may not be THRILLED about new cancer research

    There’s nothing in this world more profitable than cancer.

    And if you don’t believe me… watch what happens whenever someone finds a cheap option.

    They’ll run you outta town on a rail!

    Just look at the pioneers of natural cancer therapies.

    They’ve been MOCKEDSUEDSHUT DOWN… and even CHASED right out of the country.

    Well, friend, you gotta wonder how long it’ll be before they TURN on one of their own.

    Because the latest research reveals an OTC drug that COULD be the next great cancer therapy

    And it’s not just cheap.

    It’s SO cheap… you can get it right now on Amazon for about 18 cents a dose.

    This new study makes it crystal-clear that not EVERY great cancer treatment needs to be some sickening therapy that costs and arm and a leg.

    There are simple, cheap and downright effective ways to beat the disease…

    But you’ll NEVER hear about them from a mainstream oncologist promoting the “sick care” system of PROFITING off your misery.

    Luckily, you’ve got me elbowing my way in to share EVERY piece of news you need to hear.

    The 18-cent cancer treatment hiding in plain sight

    Scientists believe there’s a potentially powerful cancer treatment hiding in the drug loperamide, which you might know by another name…

    Imodium.

    Yeah, the diarrhea stuff. How wild is that?

    Now, the form that turns out to be the most effective against cancer may not be QUITE as cheap as the 18-cent stuff on Amazon…

    But that DOES give you some idea of how inexpensive it could be.

    Especially compared to existing cancer drugs… or the latest “breakthroughs” that Big Pharma tends to come up with (of course carrying a shockingly high price tag).

    And especially when you consider that it’s potentially effective against one of DEADLIEST forms of the disease.

    Friend, we’re talking about glioblastoma -- what you and I call “brain cancer.”

    The new study finds that loperamide could tell cancer cells that otherwise WON’T die that it’s time to KISS OFF.

    Even if you’ve never been diagnosed with this disease, you know how it works.

    If cancer cells keep on chugging along… the cancer grows and spreads. And if you can’t find a way for cancer cells to DIE… they might just KILL you!

    OK, now for the reality check.

    This is early research -- not a human clinical trial.

    And even if loperamide really DOES work… odds are you can’t just pop some poop pills and cure your cancer.

    They’ll obviously need to figure out the best way to get this stuff to the tumor to fight the disease…

    And that opens the door to all kinds of shenanigans.

    The industry’s favorite move is making a little chemical tweak that allows them to patent it all over again – and once they do, they sky’s the limit for how much they can charge.

    Their next favorite trick… if there’s no chance to win a patent and turn a big profit… is the sad and quiet announcement in a few months that it turns out they were wrong.

    This stuff doesn’t work against cancer after all they might say (even if it does).

    But that’s down the road a piece.

    Let’s look a little closer to home – let’s look at your options RIGHT HERE and RIGHT NOW.

    Whichever form of cancer you have, get a second opinion from a naturopathic physician experienced in the cancer therapies you WON’T hear about from the mainstream.

    The options he might offer you could include…

    Some of them can beat cancer on their own. Some of them can work to fight the cancer in tandem with a mainstream treatment.

    And some – especially that IVC – can also help limit the side effects of chemo and radiation, too.

    P.S. Mainstream docs have gotten SPOOKED by how many Americans have discovered the truth about cancer. What are they so afraid of?

  2. Did you get the WRONG DRUG by accident? Here’s how to tell!

    Well, here’s one heckuva MIXUP for ya.

    Two very different kinds of medications were recently RECALLED

    And unlike the OTHER recalls lately… it’s not because they were CONTAMINATED.

    Not in the traditional sense, anyway.

    It’s because they were the WRONG med!

    And I gotta warn you before you go any further.

    As serious as this is… as DANGEROUS as it is… this one’s probably gonna make you laugh at least a little, because of one of the drugs involved in the recall.

    It was sildenafil, a.k.a. the “little blue pill” that puts the lead in guys’ pencils.

    Imagine taking THAT without realizing it!

    But once you get past the snickers, there’s a very serious side to this.

    It should concern not only users of the OTHER med involved in the mixup… but anyone and everyone taking meds for any condition at all.

    Fortunately, I’ve got a surefire way to tell if you’ve got the right pills in your bottle -- no matter WHAT you’re taking.

    From disappointing… to dangerous

    So, here’s the story…

    Both sildenafil and an antidepressant drug called trazodone were recalled recently when they were accidentally packaged TOGETHER.

    Y’know. Like the old Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups commercial… only WEIRDER.

    “You got your sex pills in my mood meds!”

    “You got your mood meds in my sex pills!”

    And while it might SEEM funny… it’s no laughing matter for someone with depression who isn’t getting the treatment they rely on.

    Although, I guess it’s another way to “get happy,” if ya know what I mean.

    On the flipside, if you were hoping for some sex meds and got an antidepressant instead…

    Well, let’s just say you probably had a disappointing night in the sack

    Especially if you suffered from some of the classic side effects of trazodone such as headache… nausea… and “bad taste in your mouth.”

    The drug can also cause sleepiness, so at least the bed might get some use after all… just not in the way you had hoped.

    But listen, this ISN'T just an oddball one-off situation.

    Drug mix-ups happen ALL the time.

    One study found that 2% of all prescriptions involve a mistake -- often a mixup where the patient is given the WRONG med, or the WRONG dosage of the RIGHT drug.

    Stuff happens.

    So, here’s the situation…

    For any NEW med, check out the pill closely to make sure you got what was prescribed.  The shapes, colors and tiny writing on them aren’t random… but are used to help identify them.

    You used to need a book – The Pill Book – to see what they all looked like. But now, you can go online and Google the name of the drug you’re taking and the dosage… and hit the “images” tab to call up specific pics of what your drug should look like.

    If it’s ANY different, call the pharmacy.

    Ditto for any med you’ve been on a while. You know what it looks like by now… if it suddenly looks different, DON’T assume it’s a rebranding.

    Check it out closely -- and if you have any doubts or questions, speak up.

    And if you experience any NEW side effects from a drug you’ve been taking a while… double-check to make sure the pharmacist didn’t pull the old switcheroo on you!
