This Pervasive Daytime Mistake Can Double Your Risk of Heart Failure
Many people do it without thinking. Women who did it had a 47% higher risk of depression. And it can raise your risk for insomnia, arthritis, and premature death from any cause. The good news: this recent study shows an effective way to help reverse the damage.

3 Simple Steps to Perk Up Your Posture
Do you sit for long periods, struggle with back pain or have tense muscles in your shoulders, neck and back? Improving this could lead to considerable improvements in your health.
The pain cure
too affordable for the FDA
A SAFE breakthrough with science dating back to the 1930's is attacking arthritis pain at its very source. It has an 80% success rate in one study, it's as natural as water-and it's nearly as affordable! And THERE'S the problem.

The FDA has given this amazing pain eraser little attention. In fact, they're secretly keeping Americans hooked on dangerous opioids for bigger profit-margins. One minute they say they want to protect Americans from opioids-the next minute, they approve the most dangerous one yet! Even the manufacturer admits it can cause an over-dose with just two capsules.

Take yourself out of their dangerous game once and for all with a pain miracle the government goons don't want you to know about. Battle your arthritis, soothe your pain, feel blessed relief with a soothing substance so unique-it conquers pain at its very source. Experience the "Prometheus Pain Cure" for yourself
Scalpel-free gallbladder relief
Dear Reader,

It's downright alarming how many doctors recommend gallbladder removal like it's just a routine, no-big-deal thing. But gallbladder removal should be your last resort. Why? Simple: you need your gallbladder.

But a new Mayo Clinic study put this subject in the spotlight again. The study leaned heavily on gallbladder surgery as the answer to painful flare-ups. But as I said above (and as I've said before), I wholeheartedly disagree with this course of action. I've helped many patients make a full recovery from gallbladder pain--without going under the knife. (In fact, I gave all the details for my surgery-free gallbladder cure in the September 2012 issue of my Logical Health Alternativesnewsletter. Subscribers can view this issue for free by logging in to the archives on my website.)

But the study did make one interesting point--and it's something I've been saying for years. the fatty, processed foods that fill the Standard American Diet are a major contributing factor to gallstone disease. Maybe if doctors spent more time educating their patients about eating healthy, whole, natural foods, we'd have fewer folks rushing to the ER with gallbladder pain in the first place.

There's no question that gallstones hurt... they can cause "attacks" of pain that last from an hour to four hours, and occur when the gallbladder breaks the natural flow of bile from the gallbladder through the bile ducts. A lot of times, these attacks send people running scared to the ER.

If you get these attacks regularly, your doctor will likely recommend surgery with the nonchalance he uses when ordering his morning latte. But, I'll say it again:surgery should be your last resort (unless, of course, your gallbladder is diseased or ruptured).

Before submitting to surgery, take a closer look at what you're eating. There's no reason to cut fat entirely. But you should swap greasy, fatty foods for foods rich in healthy monounsaturated fats--like salmon, avocado, and macadamia nut oil.

I also recommend adding more alkaline foods to your diet, like cucumbers, broccoli and almonds. These foods are important because they even out your body's pH balance, lowering acidity. When your pH level is too acidic, it can create excess inflammation, which is a cause of gallbladder issues.

And a side benefit to incorporating these foods into your diet (besides a happier gallbladder)? Chances are you'll shed some of those excess pounds and end up slimmer and healthier. Not exactly a bad thing.

Cure cancer with bacteria (Yes, you read that right)

As you know, I believe strongly in the benefits of bacteria. It's a topic I've written about many times over the years. And now even mainstream medicine is starting to catch on. Researchers are examining the role of bacteria in all sorts of conditions--and finding some very promising results. In fact, a pioneering new study shows that bacteria may be the long-sought secret to curing cancer.

Scientists found that directly injecting Clostridium novyi, a common bacteria species that doesn't need oxygen to survive, into tumors shrunk or eliminated those tumors.

Not only that, but this bacteria could potentially bolster the immune system to continue targeting tumor cells for up to two years.

This new research is exciting. But it's not the first time bacteria have been linked to positive outcomes in cancer. More than a century ago, a bone surgeon named William Coley observed that some cancer patients who developed severe bacterial infections also experienced remission of their cancer.

So why did this idea disappear for 100 years? Well...huge drug companies came out with dozens of chemotherapy "advances" during that time. So, unfortunately, the answer just comes down profits and greed.

But back to the new research bringing bacteria into the spotlight once again.

In this study, bacteria were a virtually perfect cancer-fighting weapon. They were able to target stubborn tumor cells and destroy just the malignant cells while leaving normal tissue alone.

Am I telling you to go out and dutifully get a bacterial infection? No, of course not. But this is another reminder of a topic I'm passionate about: the importance of probiotics (hey, you're looking at the author of a book called Boost Your Health with Bacteria).

Of course, a probiotic supplement isn't the same as injecting a specific bacterial strain into a tumor. But the fact is, nurturing the bacteria in your gut is an absolutely essential part of overall health--and fighting cancer. After all, 70 percent of the body's immunity resides in the gut.

And I'm thrilled someone else is finally talking about a cancer cure that harnesses the body's natural immune system, rather than decimating it.

Supplementing daily with a full spectrum of beneficial bacteria is one of the best health choices you can make. And these good bacteria are not only a great potential possible weapon against cancer... they also help your digestion, your weight, and much more. We're talking major benefits to your overall health.

Until next time,

Dr. Fred

Everyday products posing a serious
health risk to the whole family
Dear Reader,

Step away from the plastic.

According to new research, increased levels of phthalates, chemicals found in plastic and some personal care products, are associated with significant declines in testosterone levels. And not just in men--but in women and children as well.

BAM!!! Another of my hunches proven correct. This has been my personal theory for years. And I'm glad research has finally proven it true.

But what still amazes me is that no one thought of this sooner. Or perhaps, no one wanted to ponder what the toxic soup we live in is actually doing to our bodies.

Consider the fact that cord blood from newborn infants has been shown to carry up to 300 toxic chemicals. How could the American medical establishment simply turn its back and think there's nothing wrong with that? That's what astounds me.

I'm beginning to think that not only does the medical establishment do its best to prevent doctors from thinking...they actually discourage it. With the advent of "evidence-based medicine," doctors are accused of doing something wrong, and even criminal, if they fail to follow the established "standard of care." And who provides the so-called "evidence" for these standards? You guessed it, pharmaceutical companies.

Anyway, back to the study. It found associations between urinary markers of phthalate exposure and testosterone levels among multiple age groups and in both sexes. Including children (specifically, 6- to 12-year-old boys and girls, and girls ages 12 to 20).

Multiple phthalates were associated with significant reductions in testosterone. The strongest association among females was in the 40- to 60-year age group. Their testosterone levels were reduced by as much as 24 percent due to phthalate exposure.

This is the age group I see the most at my office, and guess what? They always have low sex drive, can't lose weight, and are exhausted all the time. Low T explains all of that--along with impaired cognitive function, cardiovascular function, bone density, and overall well-being.

And it isn't only in women. Researchers in the study also found a 20.1 percent decrease in testosterone in men. And in boys ages 6 to 12, there was as much as a 29 percent reduction in testosterone.

Low testosterone is a serious public health issue that affects both sexes. Now, it's been proven to affect children as well. It's a sad state of affairs.

And a dangerous one, to boot.

Your entire family is at risk. And it's up to you to protect them. (I certainly wouldn't advise waiting for the medical or chemical industry to change... because I think you'll be waiting a long, long time.)

The first step is to steer clear of anything plastic. But also watch out for some hidden sources of phthalates--like perfume and shower curtains.

For more information on how to avoid phthalates and other dangerous chemicals, check out the Environmental Working Group's website,

They have information on every environmental toxin you've heard of--and a few you probably haven't. More importantly, they've exposed just about every popular hiding place there is, and compiled them into databases that you can easily search.

Dear Reader,

I often wonder…

If I got cancer, would I go the natural route? I’ve seen the evidence, I know how great some of these treatments work—especially compared to chemo. But when it’s you or someone you love, it’s hard to not just do what your doctor tells you. 

That’s why I was pretty amazed when I saw this… 

You know there must be something to a natural cancer treatment if a leading doctor thinks it “borders on medical malpractice” NOT to use it
It’s a method that destroys cancer cells and leaves healthy ones safe. And as I dug further into it, I found more and more success stories.

Like Dennis, in the UK, who explained, “It’s a very easy treatment…There’s no discomfort and afterwards you feel fine.” In less than two months, his doctor told him not to come back for a year.

I also uncovered the surprising (and frustrating) reason the mainstream turned its back on this safe and effective cancer treatment—except for a few brave doctors.

That story and how to get all the details on this treatment are HERE. I urge you to check it out now

To your health,

The everyday snack that can
help people with type 2 diabetes
Dear Reader,

In something that I can only say "DUH!" to (why do I feel like I've been saying that a lot this week?), a new review published in the journal PLOS One found that a couple handfuls of tree nuts a day may improve glycemic control in patients with type 2 diabetes.

How many years have you and I known this? And how many times do they need to keep reviewing the same old stuff? If anything, I suppose this is another chance for the people who have been hiding under a rock to finally get the message, loud and clear.

Not only can nuts help in type 2 diabetes, but they can also offer a variety of health benefits, including improving blood glucose control, lowering harmful LDL cholesterol and triglycerides, raising HDL cholesterol (the good kind), and lowering blood pressure.

This review specifically looked at studies of tree nuts, which include almonds, Brazil nuts, cashews, hazelnuts, macadamia nuts, pecans, pine nuts, pistachios, and walnuts. (Notice that it didn't include peanuts. Despite being most people's go-to, peanuts aren't actually nuts--they're legumes.)

When the researchers pooled all the data they found that eating about 1/2 cup of tree nuts per day helped reduce both HbA1c and fasting glucose levels over the course of around 8 weeks.

It's also worth noting that some of the studies showing the most benefit investigated the effect of tree nuts as a dietary replacement for carbohydrates. Gee, where have I heard that before? Eat nuts and get rid of the highly refined carbohydrates. Seems an easy message to get out--but somehow...crickets.

Not only do tree nuts make a great, healthy replacement for carbs, but they're also rich sources of magnesium and monounsaturated fat. And both of these nutrients have been linked to improved insulin sensitivity. And, don't forget: the highest percentage of monounsaturated fat you can get comes from two of my all-time favorite foods: macadamia nut oil and avocado.)

The bottom line, as ever: Nuts contain protein, fiber, minerals vitamins and antioxidants as well as good, healthy fats. And eating 1/2 a cup of them each day will help keep your stomach full, your heart healthy, and your blood sugar balanced.

Just one more thing before I let you go... I wanted you to see exactly how research like this gets funded. Read it (if you dare) and weep:

"This study was supported by the International Tree Nut Council Nutrition Research & Education Foundation and the Canadian Institutes of Health Research. Ms. Viguiliouk has no disclosures. Dr. Kendall has received research support from the Advanced Foods and Material Network, Agrifoods and Agriculture Canada, the Almond Board of California, the American Pistachio Growers, Barilla, the California Strawberry Commission, the Calorie Control Council, CIHR, the Canola Council of Canada, Coca-Cola (investigator-initiated, unrestricted grant), Hain Celestial, the International Tree Nut Council Nutrition Research and Education Foundation, Kellogg, Kraft, Loblaw, Orafti, Pulse Canada, Saskatchewan Pulse Growers, Solae, and Unilever. He has received travel funding, consultant fees, and/or honoraria from Abbott Laboratories, the Almond Board of California, the American Peanut Council, the American Pistachio Growers, Barilla, Bayer, the Canola Council of Canada, Coca-Cola, Danone, General Mills, the International Tree Nut Council Nutrition Research and Education Foundation, Kellogg, Loblaw, the Nutrition Foundation of Italy, Oldways Preservation Trust, Orafti, Paramount Farms, the Peanut Institute, PepsiCo, Pulse Canada, Sabra Dipping, Saskatchewan Pulse Growers, Solae, Sun-Maid, Tate and Lyle, and Unilever. He is on the dietary guidelines committee for the diabetes nutrition study group of the European Association for the Study of Diabetes and has served on the scientific advisory board for the Almond Board of California, the International Tree Nut Council, Oldways Preservation Trust, Paramount Farms, and Pulse Canada. Disclosures for the coauthors are listed in the article."

I've been practicing medicine for more than 20 years now...and I've seen thousands of studies. But I still can't believe it takes this type of corporate backing to do a study about something we already know: nuts are extremely healthy. 

Now if only these corporate giants would continue to use their power--and money--for good instead of evil, the world would be a better (and healthier) place. 

Until next time, 
Dr. Fred

Instant noodles = oodles of trouble
Dear Reader,

I'm a foodie at heart. And you know I pride myself on making healthy eating delicious-and even fun. So I enjoy checking out food magazines and blogs for what's new. But recently, I came across an alarming trend: ramen noodles are back. And some of the trendiest restaurants in town are hopping on the bandwagon.

That's right, people are shelling out a pretty decent amount of dough for, well--dough.

The restaurant-made version is bad enough for you...But it pales in comparison to those cheapie cups of ramen noodles from the grocery store. Which are approximately as nutritionally sound as the Styrofoam they come in.

But, according to a new study, no matter where your ramen comes from, the nutritional news is not good. Of course, for me, this is a big DUH (the refrain of the week).

But the study's still worth noting, because the ramifications of eating this stuff are even worse than you'd think. The researchers concluded that consuming instant noodles two or more times a week increases the risk of cardiometabolic syndrome--especially in women. This syndrome increases the likelihood of developing not just heart disease, but diabetes and stroke.

The research focused on South Korea, which has the highest per-capita number of instant-noodle consumers in the world. Not surprisingly, South Koreans have experienced an alarming increase in heart problems in recent years, as well as a weight-gain epidemic.

Choosing instant noodles may be a quick, easy, and inexpensive solution in the short term. But, as this study shows (and as I've said before), this type of carb-laden fare won't serve you well in the long term.
