  1. Is the mainstream FINALLY accepting this FORBIDDEN diet?

    Yesterday’s “voodoo”… is tomorrow’s mainstream medicine!

    And if you need any more proof, just take a look at the latest news on fasting.

    Let’s start with the fact that there IS news on fasting!

    Back in the day, fasting was as quacky as it got. It was right up there with bat’s breath and eye of newt.

    The mainstream wouldn’t acknowledge it or even study it.

    And they sure as heck wouldn’t endorse it.

    Today, that’s changing.

    Fasting is finally getting some long-overdue recognition as a HEALTHY way to recharge your metabolism and kick-start your weight loss.

    The FAST way to GOOD health

    Fasting has been considered a “fringe” treatment for almost as long as I can remember.

    Now, however, a report in Medscapeadmits (grudgingly) that there’s a growing body of evidence to back fasting diets and diets that mimic fasting.

    There it is in black and white, published on THE mainstream news site for doctors…

    Fasting can help obesityblood pressure control, cholesterol balance, diabetes prevention, and more.

    There’s one problem, though.

    As Medscape notes, with so many forms of fasting and so little modern research – this was “fringe,” after all – there aren’t enough studies out there to back one type over another.

    But don’t let that scare you away from it -- I’ve seen it work with my own peepers.

    In one case, “Charlie” (name changed to protect the innocent!) came over to me from the fire department with a five-alarm look on his face.

    Charlie was in a real bind. He had let himself go.

    You know that pole they slide down in cartoons? Charlie would be the one who couldn’t get through the hole.

    When he walked into my clinic, he was practically in tears. He loved his job, but they were sending him out for a physical.

    If he didn’t make weight, he’d be off the squad.

    I gave Charlie a book called Fasting: The Ultimate Dietby Dr. Allan Cott.

    At the time, it was – and going by the current reviews, still is – pretty much the “bible” for fasting diets.

    Charlie read the book… made his weight… and was so happy, he could’ve kissed me.

    Now, fasting is a starting point… but not necessarily the final answer.

    There’s another problem…

    Even when it works and works well, fasting can cause side effects as the toxins that have been hiding in fat cells get forced out into the bloodstream.

    That, of course, gives ammo to those who claim the diet is “bad” for you.

    But fasting can be very GOOD for you… if you do it right.

    Find the best type of fast for your own goals and needs.

    Some people fast a few days each season to detoxify… some fast twice a week to control their weight (the so-called 5:2 diet)… and some do other forms of fasting for other reasons.

    Get Dr. Cott’s book as well as some advice from your own doc. Now that it’s no longer “fringe,” he just might be able to help you out.

  2. [Breakthrough] WIPE OUT pain with this ‘miracle’ oil

    It’s the latest craze in healthcare… a proven natural therapy for everything from pain to cancer.

    But it’s pretty much doomed already.

    It’s got FOUR big “problems” working against it …

    1. It’s safe.
    2. It’s cheap.
    3. It’s effective.
    4. 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 a drug, they'll do everything in their power – which is considerable – to KILL it.

    And that’s why you won’t hear boo about it… from them.

    But I’m already sold on this stuff.

    I’ve heard some pretty amazing things… and I’m here to share them with you.

    Nature’s ‘forbidden’ miracle therapy

    When I was in med school, there was absolutely no mention of an “endocannabinoid system.”

    It wasn’t controversial. It simply didn’t exist.

    And then CBD emerged… seemingly out of nowhere.

    It’s clear to me now that if I ever had cancer, I’d take the strongest form of CBD oil I could find (along with some other stuff).

    I DON’T have cancer – thank God.

    But some of the best research on CBD has been for pain… so I’m giving it a shot.

    I’ve been experimenting on myself with a more standard form of CBD oil to see if it’ll do anything about this lower back pain that’s been lingering for a few years.

    It’s only been about a month or so since I started, but I already know one thing…

    I’d sure as heck rather take my chances with CBD oil than an opioid.

    No contest!

    Yet the “experts” are lining up against this stuff.

    In an op-ed published in JAMA, two such experts claim that "substituting cannabis for opioid addiction treatments is potentially harmful."

    C’mon. That’s not science.

    That’s a joke.

    Opioids have been responsible for a wave of deaths so vast that last year, it actually made a dent in the national life expectancy.

    I’ve never heard of a SINGLE PERSON “dying of cannabis”…

    And that includes every possible form… legal and illegal… with and without THC.

    Only real problem here is the threat CBD poses to massive segments of the drug industry.

    We’re now figuring out that this endocannabinoid system plays a role in not only pain, but also mood, memory, appetite, and MANY other critical areas of your health.

    Even more critically, activating that system can help fight off disease -- including supposedly incurable conditions, ranging from Alzheimer’s to cancer.

    As for one of those so-called “experts” from that JAMA opinion piece…

    He’s on the take from Big Pharma, having received sizeable funding from Alkermes, the pharmaceutical company that has been pushing a drug to combat opioid addiction.

    Don’t let powerful corporate interests scare you from what works.

    And don’t let them stand in the way of relief.

    Sometimes, the BEST treatments are the “forbidden” ones!
