  1. Beat one of the WORST RISKS of diabetes… without meds!

    Not long ago – you probably even remember the days – diabetes patients looked like Civil War veterans, hobbled by missing feet and legs.

    They hopped around on peglegs and false feet… and some were confined to wheelchairs.

    No one uses peglegs or hooks for hands anymore (except pirates).

    But people are losing limbs all over again, because…

    An ENTIRE class of diabetes meds is bringing back amputations.

    As word gets out about these foot-choppin’ side effects, sales of these drugs are plunging.

    Rather than set the record straight… come clean about the risks… and work on something that’ll truly help patients… they’re doing just the opposite.

    They’ve cooked up a NEW sales pitch to bring these dangerous drugs to MORE people…

    And it’s all to help prevent a condition you can tackle entirely on your own -- without any meds at all!

    The REAL key to saving your kidneys

    Big Pharma is trying to distract you form the amputation risk with a little smoke-and-mirrors study.

    It not only claims that SGLT-2 drugs aren’t extra risky… but that one of them has an extra BENEFIT!

    The study finds that taking this SGLT2 inhibitor will cut the risk of end-stage kidney disease and death from kidney disease in diabetics by 34 percent.

    But while the price of saving your kidneys may not be an arm and a leg… we’re talking DOUBLE the risk of amputation here.

    So… your cost could be at least a FOOT.

    Oh, and $600 a month (or at the very least the priciest copay on the chart).

    Frankly, I wouldn’t touch this drug or any of the other meds in this class for ANYTHING – even if they gave me a lifetime supply for free.

    If you’ve got diabetes, you’ve got options:
    • Skip all sugar and refined flour.
    • Drink more (carefully filtered) water.
    • Take supplements such as glucose-tolerance factor (GTF) chromium, Gymnema sylvestre (GS), and berberine.

    Follow that, and most diabetes will disappear… or at least regress to the point where you will no longer need meds.

    And once you’re at that level, you won’t have to worry about your kidneys, either.

    If you already suffer from kidney problems, fish oil, alpha-lipoic acid, n-acetyl-cysteine and some vitamin C should do the trick.

    Keep in mind that when your kidneys are functioning poorly, they start to flush out a lot of the good stuff – like magnesium -- as well as the bad stuff.

    If you don’t consume enough magnesium to compensate for that loss, your blood sugar will run high.

    That’s why I also recommend 500 mg daily of magnesium (preferably either magnesium gluconate or chelated magnesium).

  2. Dodge deadly drugs with the 3 most ‘dangerous’ natural cures

    If a SINGLE PERSON taking a vitamin suffers from a side effect, it’s treated like a national emergency.

    They launch a RECALL.

    They demand INVESTIGATIONS.

    They alert the MEDIA.

    But now, a report from the Orthomolecular Medicine News Service has exposed the truth about supplements.

    There’s nothing safer!

    In fact, the three “worst” natural therapies… the “most dangerous” ones of all… just might be three of the BEST.

    These ‘dangerous’ supplements bring killer benefits

    Data from the American Association of Poison Control Centers reveals NO DEATHS linked to most of the most common natural therapies.

    Those include vitaminA, C, E… as well as B vitamins… and the minerals calcium, magnesium, chromium, zinc, colloidal silver, seleniumand iron.

    Even herbal remedies haven’t killed anybody!

    Nope. NOBODY.

    There are, sadly, a couple of exceptions.

    And that’s caused some folks to pounce on some of the most BENEFICIAL therapies out there.

    Take vitamin D, for instance.

    The report claims one death linked to an overdose. It’s hard to say what happened… but assuming it’s true, even one death is a tragedy.

    But as one study found, vitamin D is EIGHT TIMES MORE EFFECTIVE than the flu shot at preventing influenza.

    By comparison, the rare but deadly nerve disorder Guillain-Barré syndrome may strike 1 or 2 people per million injected with the flu shot.

    Somewhere between 120 million and 150 million Americans get it every year… so that adds up to 120 to 300 cases a year CAUSED by the flu shot.

    You tell me which one you’d rather have… and which risk you’d rather face.

    The report also finds a single death linked to melatonin -- out of 3.1 million people who use melatonin, usually for help with sleep, according to the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health.

    Again, tragic… but you’d need to swallow about 10 bottles of melatonin all at once to hit a fatal dose.

    Compare that to prescription sleep meds, taken by nearly three times as many people. If THEY were “as dangerous” as melatonin, that would be about three deaths a year, right?

    Well, a 2012 study found 320,000 to 507,000 deaths PER YEAR linked to sleep drugs in the United States alone!

    The drugs increase the risk of death by as much as 500%.

    Even using them just a couple of times a year can increase your death risk.

    There’s one final natural therapy that REALLY gets their blood boiling.

    They’ll claim homeopathic medicine is INEFFECTIVE because there’s nothing in it.

    Then, at the same time, they’ll tell you it’s DANGEROUS.

    Make up your minds!

    There were ZERO deaths linked to homeopathy in the new report… and a 1997 analysis in Lancet found homeopathic remedies to be 2.45 times more effective than placebos overall.

    The biggest benefits were for digestive disorders, psychological issues, allergies and arthritis, all of which are often treated with drugs that cause serious side effects.

    OBVIOUSLY you need to watch out for the weird stuff from China sold for everything from erection problems to weight loss to bodybuilding – unfortunately labeled as “supplements.”

    But as the U.S. government’s own numbers show, taking your standard vitamins isn’t just a “good” option.

    It’s the SAFEST one you have!
