While these are real concerns, there's another rising epidemic that's not making the same headlines. More »

Drug Danger Alert

How Antacids And PPI’s Can Kill You
New Science Shows Hidden, Deadly Risk
Of Common Heartburn And Reflux Drugs

Dear Jose,

If you take any over-the-counter drug for your acid reflux, heartburn, or GERD...including Prevacid and Prilosec,... this timely report directly affects you.

So take thirty seconds and read every word of this email. Carefully.

These commonly used drugs suffered a major setback last year (February 8, 2012) when the FDA warned that taking them can give you a dangerous condition known as “C-Diff”.

Now there is evidence to show Prilosec, Prevacid, and other PPI’s (“Proton Pump Inhibitors”) ... or the other common group of drugs for reflux called “antacids”... create another, potentially greater risk to your health. See a video report (click here).

It seems antacids and PPI’s are literally starving your body of vital nutrients, and leading to all sorts of deadly health conditions. Some conditions that have been linked to these drugs:
Barton Publishing
  • Dementia
  • Irregular heartbeat
  • Iron deficiency
  • Pneumonia
  • Fatigue
  • Brittle bones

These drugs, and others, do provide temporary relief from the pain of acid reflux. But they do so by suppressing the acid in your digestive system.

The problem is, you need the acid for proper digestion.

How PPI’s and Antacids Are
Literally Starving Your Body

bartonWhen you suppress the acid level in your stomach, foods are not properly digested.

The nutrients in your foods are no longer available to your body, robbing you of vital building blocks for good health, such as vitamin B12 and calcium.

Even though you may be eating a healthy diet, your body is not extracting the vitamins and minerals it needs from the food you consume.

Your stomach may be full, but your body is slowly starving to death.

Clicke Here for this informative video from medical researcher Joe Barton explaining the science behind these disturbing side effects. It is easy to understand and shares important information.

Safer (And Cheaper) Remedies Available

The good news is you do not have to take these dangerous drugs ever again - and there is relief for your painful acid reflux, heartburn, and GERD.

Find out about safer (and cheaper) remedies thatactivate your body's own healing systems andrestore the balance you've lost in your digestive tract.

Outside the box-spring
Dear Reader,

For most people, melatonin is synonymous with sleep. And that's about it. But there's actually much more to melatonin than you might think.

Melatonin is a hormone that originates in your pineal gland. Its release is based on light exposure. During the day, your body generates little to no melatonin. And production peaks after dark, about three to five hours after you go to sleep.

This hormone plays a key role in regulating your body's natural circadian rhythm--a fancy word for the sleep/wake cycle. So it's no surprise that over the last couple of decades, melatonin has emerged as a popular over-the-counter sleep aid.

But I also use it to boost my patients' immune systems. And now, I have a couple new "off-label" reasons to recommend this oldie-but-goodie supplement.

First up: melatonin as a natural form of migraine prevention. A new trial showed that a 3 mg dose of melatonin was as effective of a 25 mg dose of amitriptyline (a tricyclic antidepressant) when it comes to warding off this painful condition.

Even better, melatonin supplementation came with lower rates of daytime sleepiness. And it didn't contribute to weight gain, either. (Both of these are common side effects of amitriptyline.)

In fact, subjects taking melatonin actually lost weight. So it looks like we can chalk up another win for our team. Or two, as the case may be...

This next bit of new research is another great piece of evidence from the Nurses' Health Study. As it turns out, having high levels of melatonin secretion can cut your risk of type 2 diabetes in half.

Or put another way, low levels of melatonin secretion double your risk of diabetes. And researchers discovered this link even after adjusting for a whole host of other confounding factors.

This conclusion obviously raises a long string of questions.

Keep reading...

Most notably, would supplementing with melatonin have a protective effect? Would prolonged dark exposure have similar benefits? And could either of these strategies actually increase insulin sensitivity?

It's incredible that something this simple could potentially prevent type 2 diabetes. But if you connect the dots, it also makes a lot of sense.

Scientists have found melatonin receptors in pancreatic cells. And previous study has pointed to the fact that this hormone could somehow be involved in blood sugar metabolism. So the idea that melatonin could protect against diabetes isn't exactly a stretch.

But there's another strong association here that bears mentioning.

Research has also linked sleep disruption to type 2 diabetes. One study showed that men who get less than five hours of sleep per night are twice as likely to end up with diabetes as men who regularly clock at least seven hours.

Other studies have associated snoring with a doubling of diabetes risk--even after accounting for factors like body fat.

But this link doesn't just apply to diabetes. Researchers have also connected circadian rhythm disruptions to cluster headache and migraines.

Poor melatonin production paves the way to disorders like sleep apnea, insomnia, and delayed sleep phase syndrome. And all of these sleep disorders are linked to headaches--a fact that may at least partially explain the first set of study results I shared with you.

So it looks like the real moral of the story here may be a little simpler than it sounds: Make sure you're getting plenty of sleep--even if you have to take melatonin to do it.

The benefits to your health might reach further than you think.

Until next time,

Dr. Fred
