  1. [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.

  2. [URGENT] Popular sleep meds in DEADLY new link

    It’s a lesson in how NOT to warn Americans about a dangerous drug!

    There’s an entire class of medication out there… taken by millions of Americans, especially older folks… nearly every single night for sleep.

    A new report finds… they’re ALL poisonous.

    ALL of them.EVERY… LAST… ONE.

    THAT should be the headline, right?

    Of course, that’s NOT how they covered this.

    The headline at Medscape– a website your own doctor likely uses for decisions on YOU – is much gentler.

    “Insomnia Drugs: Some More Dangerous Than Others.”

    That must’ve been a favor for their drug company pals.

    Because they make it sound like some drugs AREN’T “as” dangerous…

    All while NEVER mentioning that there are ways to get sleep that aren’t dangerous at all.

    The SAFER way to sleep… tonight and every night

    The new report finds that since the year 2000, “serious outcomes” from the use and/or overuse of 42 common sleep meds has TRIPLED.

    Antidepressant and antipsychotic drugs that are also used as sleep meds are the “more dangerous than others” part of the headline.

    Supposedly, the newerbenzodiazepines and “Z drugs” like eszopiclone (Lunesta), zaleplon (Sonata), and zolpidem (Ambien)are what’s safer.

    But don’t ask your doctor about these “less dangerous” drugs yet.

    There’s a HUGE catch-- one that’s NOT in this study.

    See, they used data from the American Association of Poison Control Centers database.

    In other words, reports of people who took a drug and had an immediate terrible reaction, including accidental and/or intentional overdose.

    It doesn’t look at long-term risks

    And that’s where this stuff gets REALLY scary.

    Long-term use of the “safer” z-drugs and benzos can increase your risk of:

    • DEATH by 500%
    • DEMENTIA by 50%, and
    • FALLS by 40%.

    They’ve also been linked to car crashesallergic reactionsbreathing problems… and a crazy form of sleepwalking where you go out and do things WHILE STILL ASLEEP.

    And at the end of the day – or in this case, night – the drugs really only add just a few minutes to your total sleep time.

    So, let me give you three TRULY safe ways to get the rest you need… without poisoning yourself… and without facing these and other risks.

    1. Herbal tea: This is a pretty simple option – so simple many people dismiss it. Don’t -- a tea with chamomile and valerian and knock you right out.
    2. Supplements: Both GABA and 5-HTP are safe options that’ll help you get some shuteye without the risks.
    3. The “sleep” hormone: If you’re a little older, there’s a good chance you’re low in melatonin… a.k.a. the “sleep hormone.” Boost the melatonin, and you’ll get the rest you need.

    For best results, look for a form that is micronized into a spray so that it gets absorbed instantly… and takes effect in a jiff.

  3. Breakthrough CRACKS the ‘Alzheimer’s code’… and helps SAVE your brain from these ‘killers’

    If you feel your memory getting worse… or find you’re more easily confused than you used to be…  The mainstream has ALREADY failed you.   Most docs are getting it all wrong (even if they mean well) – because Alzheimer’s drugs simply DO NOT WORK.   But I’ve uncovered a MAJOR medical breakthrough – one that can help REVERSE memory issues.  This...
