In the US you now have a 1 in 4 chance of dying from heart disease. And worryingly this shocking statistic is self inflicted. Why? Because of our sugar loaded processed diets, lack of exercise, chemical crop sprays and the toxic air we breathe.
There’s an island in Northern Europe where many of these over 130 volcanos that’s an oasis of health and vitality in comparison. The small country of Iceland (ironically named for a country with so many volcanoes) has the world’s longest lifespan and lowest health care costs.
The Icelandic people enjoy:
- 80% fewer heart attacks
- A third less dementia
- 32.4% lower blood pressure
- 39.7% less breast cancer
- Longer lifespans than Japan
5,000 times stronger than any antioxidant?
How do they enjoy such astonishing levels of health? Is it the air? A diet high in omega-3 fishy oils?
The answer is actually simple: Many experts believe it’s the volcanic soil. Iceland’s farming fields are rich in nutrients. This includes the minerals sulfur and selenium. In the body these minerals are combined to create what is known as the “miracle molecule”: glutathione.
Glutathione is believed to be 5,000 times stronger than any antioxidant. It acts like a heat seeking missile to find and annihilate harmful invaders. This includes toxins, germs, bacteria, free radicals and any other microscopic nasties that can cause serious illness and disease if left to fester.
“Scientists now believe that free radicals are causal factors in nearly every known disease, from heart disease to arthritis to cancer and cataracts. In fact, free radicals are a major culprit in the aging process itself.” – Lester Packer, Ph.D.
The soil has been stripped of the minerals needed to make it
When you top up your glutathione levels you can look forward to having a fresher, stronger cells radiating energy and life.
Unfortunately, harsh crop sprays and chemical fertilizers have stripped American farm lands of sulfur and selenium. In the 1930s Nelson Rockefeller developed a chemical fertilizer that striped sulfur and selenium. In 1954 the government made it mandatory to use this fertilizer to increase crop production.
Is it a coincidence that the West Coast Organic Sulfur Report found that rates of disease shot up a terrifying 4,000% after 1954? Maybe. But is it worth taking the risk?
If you cant get enough sulfur and selenium from your food, the only way to create the “miracle molecule” glutathione in your body is through supplementation.
Some clinical studies results from glutathione supplementation include:
- 80% FEWER heart conditions
- Arthritis 25% less pain and 30% better function
- 67% reduction in heart disease and blood pressure from just a 20% increase in glutathione
P.S. Feel free to show this article to your doctor and ask their opinion. Just make sure they’re a free thinking doctor able to appreciate the benefits of nutritional science for treating many illnesses and diseases. Unfortunately, too few doctors are trained in nutrition, leading to the current focus on medicating every symptoms instead of addressing the root cause: deficiencies in the vital minerals and nutrients are bodies need to heal from within.
Blood oxygen? Don’t I mean “blood sugar”, I hear you ask? Yes, it’s true that, with the rapid rise in type 2 diabetes, low blood sugar is a huge problem for millions of people. However, low blood oxygen can also cause serious health problems. And it’s dangerously underdiagnosed.
Oxygen Carries Nutrients to Where They Need to Go
Imagine your blood is a stream running through your body. Oxygen molecules are then like tiny ships carry nutrients to your heart, brain and muscles. The higher the oxygen levels in your blood the more nutrients can be transported to help you stay fit and healthy.
Sounds simple so far?
Here’s the scary part. It’s believed that most people have dangerously low levels of oxygen in their blood. And the symptoms can take a long time to appear. The lack of nutrients damage is occuring at such a micro cellular level. And it can creep up on you slowly and cause you to age faster on the inside…
- Weaker immune system – Without enough oxygen your body can’t create enough white blood cells. These are like white knights able to destroy germs, viruses or bacteria
- Buildup of toxins in the body – Oxygen is needed to break down all the chemicals, pollutants and pesticides you breathe and ingest on a daily basis
- Accelerated aging – Oxygen is needed to maintain colagen in your skin, to keep it firm and bouncy. Without it, wrinkles, crow’s feet and eye bags can appear.
- Increased cancer risk – Interforon is the body’s main chemical for fighting cancer. And it’s production relies on a steady flow of oxygen molecules.
Nobel Prize Winning Scientist Links Low Blood Oxygen with Cancer
Dr Otto Warburg was a German scientist who won a Nobel prize in 1931 for his work on the vital role oxygen plays in the bloodstream.
He discovered that cells become cancerous when they are starved of oxygen. This causes them to switch to using sugar as an energy source instead.
“Cancer, above all other diseases, has countless secondary causes. But, even for cancer, there is only one prime cause. Summarized in a few words, the prime cause of cancer is the replacement of the respiration of oxygen in normal body cells by a fermentation of sugar.” – Dr Otto Warburg
Dr Warburg correctly surmised that increasing oxygen in the blood could help cure cancers and other serious diseases.
Even better is that oxygen therapy is now low cost, natural and has no side effects.
And the reason you haven’t heard about it?
Because it could save millions of people from a lifetime on expensive pharmaceutical drugs.
Why Your Blood Oxygen Drops After Age 40
Low blood oxygen is common in people over 40. This is due to the accummulated exposure to:
- Airborne pollutants
- Vacinees and medications our body treats as toxins
- Pesticides, inseticies, cosmetics and household chemicals
- Processed “Frankenfood” where harmful additives added and nutritoin taken out
“Since the beginning of the industrial age, man has created over 100,000 unnatural chemical compounds. These have been spewed into the air we breathe, the soil our plants are grown in, and the water we drink. It all adds up to increased cancer.” – The Truth About Cancer
The spreading of these toxins in our air, food and home is now blamed by many as the prime cause of cancer by stopping your cells from being properly nourished, oxygenated, hydrated and cleansed.
How To increase the Oxygen in Your Blood
As Dr Warburg discovered, the key to beating cancer and many serious diseases may be to get oxygen inside your body’s cells through the blood stream. That way your body can cleanse itself of all the chemicals, pollutants and toxins that are lethal to your health.
Unfortunately, you can’t just increase your blood oxygen levels from breathing in more deeply. Thankfully, there’s been a breakthrough on how it can be done.
How can this be done?
A natural health researcher called Kevin Richardson has created a short video in which he reveals how this quick, easy “oxygenation” therapy that’s helped:
- A women to heal a cancerous growth until it literally dried and fell off
- A boy with ADHD who became so calm and happy that his mum stopped his powerful amphetamine drugs
- A man who helped his dad get his mind back to being sharp as a tack
He also shares:
- Real screenshots of what your blood looks like with and without an oxygen deficiency
- Why serious ill health is not because you’re not taking the right drugs
- Why many people have an internal metabolic age that’s up to 20 years HIGHER than their chronological age
- How a Nobel Prize winning scientist discovered that oxygen therapy can kill some types of cancer, and had his research promptly buried
- How Dr Atkins had his license revoked after claiming to have cured a woman’s breast cancer by oxygenating her blood
P.S. Many people suffer from low blood oxygen levels after the age of 40. Replenishing the missing oxygen has been found to have astonishing success at cleansing toxins, bacteria and free radicals. Yet the mainstream medical establishment continues to prescribe drugs instead. Find out why some forward thinking doctors are recommending oxygen therapy in the video instead.
Do you struggle to remember words for things?
Do you go into rooms but can’t remember why?
Do you get told that you keep asking people the same questions?
Or do you suddenly get into a bad mood but dont know why?
These may just be signs of getting old, or they may be early warning signs of dementia. The problem we face is that there’s still no reliable way of dementia being diagnosed. Possible methods in the pipeline include a blood test for proteins, an eye test for the thickness of the retina or a special memory test to help gain an early diagnosis.
We are, at least, making progress in identifying dementia’s possible causes. Genetics, nutrition and lifestyle factors are all risk factors. And as awareness spreads, more people may start taking steps to reduce their dementia risk through adopting healthier lifestyle habits.
Until a pharmaceutical magic bullet is found (current progress doesnt look good), in the battle against dementia we need to focus on PREVENTION rather than cure.
1. Avoid “Anti-Cholinergic” Medications
The precise cause of dementia is still unknown. Although the latest research suggests that a main cause is chronic inflammation causing toxic amyloid plaque to appear on the brain.
It’s also feared that some OTC treatments for colds and flu, hay fever, allergies, high blood pressure, bladder problems, depression and heartburn that contain ANTI-CHOLINERGIC drugs could make the risk of dementia worse.
The Indiana University School of Medicine conducted MRI scans of the brains of 451 people with an average age of 73 to see what effect these drugs may have on cognitive impairment and dementia. They also held memory and cognitive tests.
The people taking anticholinergic drugs were found to do worse in the memory and problem solving tests. They also had SMALLER brains and BIGGER cavities inside the brain. In other words, the drugs appeared to make their brains SHRINK.
The study’s authors have warned: “Use of AC [anti-cholinergic] medication among older adults should likely be discouraged if alternative therapies are available.”
‘Given all the research evidence, physicians might want to consider alternatives to anticholinergic medications if available when working with their older patients. The impact of these drugs have been know about for over a decade, with a 2013 study finding drugs with a strong anticholinergic effect cause cognitive problems when taken continuously for as few as 60 days. Drugs with a weaker effect could cause impairment within 90 days.’ – Dr Shannon Risacher
The reason why anti-cholinergic medications are feared to worsen memory and concentration is because they’ve been found to block the chemical acetycholine in the brain.
Acetylcoline is one of the most important neurotransmitters in the brain, and is responsible for sending signals the brain relies on to function properly. Less acetylcoline naturally means the brain works slower, and explains why people with dementia typically have lower levels of this vital neurotransmitter.
2. Stop eating processed junk
Dr Marilyn Grenville, PhD and a Fellow of The Royal Society of Medicine, was the first medical professional I’ve heard refer to dementia as “type 3 diabetes”.
If you have diabetes you’ve a 50% higher risk of Alzheimer’s. So it makes sense that to limit your risk of dementia, you should observe the same lifestyle habits that lower your risk of diabetes too.
The 60% rise in type 2 diabetes in the last decade is strongly linked to processed sugars, like sucrose, dextrose and fructose, as well as sweeteners, like aspartame and agave nectar. They are believed to cause a condition known as “glycation”, which has been linked to premature aging of the skin and aging of the brain.
The problem is that processed sugars are tough to avoid. You’d be amazed at what foods contain sugars and sweeteners these days. This includes spaghetti sauce, mayonnaise and white bread.
To prevent these processed sugars rotting your brain, you need to start replacing junk processed food with a diet rich in fruit and vegetables.
With diabetes and dementia so strongly linked, it makes sense to adopt a diet recommended for reversing the symptoms of diabetes to help protect your mind.
The best foods for diabetics are foods with a low glycemic index. These are foods that are more slowly digested, absorbed and metabolised. This in turn prevents blood sugar spikes and keeps insulin at a safe level.
One of the most popular low glycemic index diets is the Mediterranean diet. This diet is rich in fruit, vegetables, oily fish and olive oil. All foods packed with brain enriching nutrients.
3. Boost Omega 3 and Vitamin D Levels
Another benefit of eating oily fish is that it’s packed with Omega 3 fatty acids. Multiple studies have found that Omega 3 has an anti-inflammatory response that can help improve blood flow in the brain.
However, you’re body can’t produce it on its own. So unless you eat oily fish once a week, it’s a good idea to top up your levels with an Omega 3 supplement over the age of 50. Omega-3 also contains DHA, which may help prevent amaloid plaque formation on the brain.
Another supplement to consider is Vitamin D. A Vitamin D deficinency, from not getting enough natural sunlight, has been found to cause a 53% higher risk of dementia. Unfortunately, your body isnt able to produce much vitamin D from food. So unless you can get outdoors more often, It’s may be worth taking a daily vitamin D supplement as well.
4. Daily Brain Training
Your brain is a muscle. Like the muscles in your arms and legs, you need to exercise it daily to keep it fit and healthy. To put it bluntly – use it or lose it.
One of the wonderful things about the human brain is that its function is not fixed. You’re never too old to improve how well it performs. And you can continue to learn new tricks as you get older.
Instead of passive Netflix binges, consider doing things in the evenings that give your brain a workout. Play board games, do crossword puzzles, learn a language or take up dancing. Engaging in pursuits that force you to think on your feet have been found to delay cognitive decline.
5. Get 7-8 Hours of “Natural” Sleep
Recently it was discovered that the brain has a type of shampoo that cleans it when you sleep. It was discovered that when we sleep our brain actually shrinks. A fluid then washes it of the toxins and waste products that have accumulated during the day.
It’s called the “glymphatic system” and its discovery has reinforced the vital health benefits of 7-8 hours sleep a night. Although not yet proven, the discovery of this “sleep shampoo” has raised concerns that sleeping pills may interfere with the process and increase your dementia risk. It could explain why we feel groggy the next day after taking sleeping pills as it’s possible they may stop the glymphatic system working properly and prevent the brain being cleansed of toxins when we sleep.
Widespread lifestyle changes are urgently needed in the war against dementia
In the UK there are now over 850,000 people living with dementia. This costs the health system £26 billion a year, but still pales in comparison to the emotional cost of seeing loved ones losing their identities and living their lives lost and confused.
Unless there is a big change in how we diagnose, treat and PREVENT dementia occurring in the first place, the numbers are expected to double by 2051.
Following the five steps outlined may help people to reduce their risks and avoid the terrible toll dementia can take on the lives of sufferers and their loved ones.

Free radicals are depicted as the arch enemy of preventative medicine. They’re often presented as microscopic pests intent on damaging your body’s cells, aging the skin and causing havoc at a microscopic level.
However, they aren’t always bad. And our bodies actually produce them naturally. This includes by the liver to detoxify the blood, to create while white blood cells that destroy bacteria, viruses and damaged cells.
If our body’s get overloaded with free radicals it can cause problems. And free radicals have become abundant in the world around us.
We breathe them in from air pollution. We consume them from processed food due to pesticides. And we absorb them through all the chemicals and disinfectants we use daily.
Why are they dangerous?
Free radicals are oxygen containing molecules that are missing a positive electron.
This makes them unstable and desperately looking to take the positive charge from another molecule to balance itself.
In the body this can set off a chain reaction of molecules stealing the positive charge of other molecules. And if this overwhelms the body’s ability to cope, this causes a condition called “oxidative stress”.
Oxidative stress can then affect your body’s proteins, fatty acids and even your DNA. This can then trigger human diseases including:
- Parkinson’s disease and Alzheimer’s disease
- Gene mutations and cancers
- Chronic fatigue syndrome
- Fragile X syndrome
- Heart and blood vessel disorders
- Heart failure
- Heart attack
- Inflammatory diseases
What can you do to prevent it?
Free radicals can be countered by “antioxidants”. These help to balance the electrons of the free radicals and prevent oxidative stress. Your body can produce them naturally. But if you suffer from poor nutrition or ingest too many toxins, the number of free radicals can fast overpower your natural antioxidant levels.
Thankfully, it’s possible to boost your antioxidant levels naturally through food. Some of the best antioxidant foods include:
- Goji berries
- Wild blueberries
- Dark chocolate
- Kidney beans
So to keep your free radicals in check, consider adding a handful of berries or some dark chocolate to your diet to boost your antioxidant levels naturally.
Inflammation. We always hear it’s bad. But why?
Normally, inflammation is actually a good thing.
It is the body’s way of healing itself after an injury, of defending against viruses and bacteria and repairing damaged tissue.
When the body detects there’s a problem, it sends white blood cells flooding to the area to repair the damage. This results in increased blood flow and a temporary swelling of cells in the infected area. After the damage or threat is removed, the inflammation will reduce on its own.
Problems occur when the inflammation goes on for weeks, or even months. This is known as “chronic inflammation” and is to blame for almost all disease and long-term sickness. This includes heart disease, arthritis, asthma and tuberculosis.
Turmeric is nature’s anti-inflammatory
Doctors can prescribe anti-inflammatory painkillers to provide short-term relief. But long-term use may cause side effects, including stomach ulcers, heartburn and kidney problems.
Thankfully, there are natural alternatives, which some studies suggest may be just as effective yet with fewer side effects.
One of the most popular anti-inflammatories in preventative medicine is Turmeric. This is more commonly known as a spice in Indian food. However, it’s wide range of health benefits has led to it getting the nickname “Cure-cumin”.
Along with reducing inflammation and reducing inflammation related pain, some studies have suggested that Turmeric may be effective at lowering high blood pressure and preventing the spread of cancerous cells.
Get it naturally through food
If you love India or Thai food then you have an excellent excuse to eat more of it.
Another option is to take Turmeric in supplement form. Just make sure you get a supplement containing 95% curcuminoids, along with coconut oil or black pepper to help absorption.
Warning – Never take Curcumin in combination with blood thinning medication. You should always consult your doctor before taking supplements as they may interfere with any medications you are taking.

Do you worry what effect smartphones, the internet and our lifestyles are having on our brains?
Do you struggle to read for long periods without your mind drifting?
Or do you worry what effect aging is having on your brain, and if you are at risk of worsening memory as you get older?
Well, then you’ll be interested to know that there’s a system that claims to improve your memory, concentration and focus 500 percent from just a few minutes practice per day.
It’s called the Memory Professor and it harnesses the same techniques of the ancient Greeks, modern day memory masters and elite public speakers to help you gain a faster and more accurate brain with the ability to concentrate for hours at a time.
The brain is the sexiest muscle
Along with improving your performance at work, having a better functioning brain can boost your self respect too.
Memory and concentration are characteristics we respect. To be able to recall specific facts in debates with friends or to give a speech or presentation without shuffling through notes.
These are marks of someone who’s got their act together, has a brain as sharp as a die and is on the ball.
We’d all love to be thought of as walking Encyclopedias. And the Memory Professor system aims to teach you how to become one.
What is the Memory Professor system?
Your brain is a muscle like any other. It needs to be TRAINED if you want to gain enhanced memory, laser like focus and all day concentration.
And this is exactly what the Memory Professor system provides.
It combines the greatest brain training techniques of the ancient greeks with those of modern day memory champions to create the ultimate brain training system.
And unlike various apps and games, the Memory Professor provides you with QUANTIFIABLE improvements in your memory, concentration and focus you can track.
And it is guaranteed to provide you with a more precise and more powerful brain within 30 days or you get your money back.
The Memory Professor was created by Kit Stevenson.
She got the inspiration for her brain enhancement system when stood in the pouring rain, cold, alone and lost. She’d just arrived in Madrid, Spain, on a backpacking trip. But her phone had no signal, her bank cards didn’t work and she’d arrived at the wrong address.
A quest to discover the best memory training techniques
That moment was a turning point for Kit. She decided that never again would she put herself in such a precarious situation. She was going to develop a superbrain that meant she always remembered vital information and knew what to do.
This led her on a research journey to discover the techniques of Ancient Greeks philosophers, modern day memory champions and elite public speakers. She wanted to unlock the secrets to how you can train your own brain to become like a supercomputer.
And so the Memory Professor system was born.
There are no shortcuts to a brighter brain
As a natural health researcher I’ve always been intrigued by whether it’s possible to develop a brighter brain. It’s no secret that students, business professionals and even artists have been using pharmaceutical drugs for ADHD, like Adderal and Ritalin, to improve their brain power.
While taking stimulants like these can increase your brain activity for a period, they can also cause horrible side effects. This includes irritability, agitation, headaches, muscle weakness, blurred vision, loss of sex drive and chest pains. And the long-term effects could be even more severe.
The problem is that taking these stimulants beyond the scope of what they are normally prescribed means you’re acting like a human guinea pig. Is the short-term boost to your productivity worth it for the potential harm it could be doing to your mind?
I actually get asked this a lot by concerned students who are worried about the health implications of Adderall, Ritalin and other pharmaceutical drugs. Is there a safe, natural alternative?
Nootropic “smart drugs” are largely unproven
While there are plenty of so called ‘nootropics’ that are marketed as safe, natural alternatives to pharmaceutical drugs, there aren’t many high quality studies to support the huge claims made in their marketing.
While there could be a breakthrough and a new ingredient discovered that can boost the grey matter in the brain, for now the reality doesn’t yet live up to the hype for so called cognitive enhancers.
So what can you do to improve your concentration in meetings at work, to protect yourself from worsening memory loss as you get older and to have a fit, healthy and sharp mind?
The answer is TRAINING. Remember, the brain is a muscle like any other and needs to be exercised to make it a more powerful one.
And brain training is exactly what the Memory Professor provides.
How the Memory Professor improves your mind
How often have you read a business or educational book and completely forgotten the key lessons only days later?
When we read a book we tend to intellectualize the information. We may understand the mechanics of what it reveals but we don’t have the framework to replicate it in our everyday lives. This is just one of the many skills the Memory Professor helps you to develop.
The Memory Professor claims to double your memory in as little as 14 days. It can then increase your ability to memorize 500% in just 30 days.
Sounds far fetched. But the reality is that there are many people who’ve been able to turn themselves into walking computers. Not from being blessed with the right genes, but from rolling up their sleeves and building up their brain one block at a time.
Through exercises, explainer videos and vivid imagery it provides you with a complete training gym for the mind.
Some of the skills you gain from it:
- Multi-sensory association techniques
- Name and Face memory encryption method
- The Herigones Mnemonic System for creating a depository of information in your mind
- Brain Gym Quizzes and Scribe Videos
- Memory Palace Method for using spatial awareness to learn long strings of numbers
- Back of a Napkin method – remember in context of stories and images
It’s claimed that just 25 minutes practice a day is all that’s needed to add these skills to your mind.
If you feel like you’re in a mental rut and aren’t able to comprehend information like you used to, the Memory Professor may be able to help you rub away the rust.
If memories are building blocks for associations, just imagine what skills you could master with a better brain?
Who Can Benefit from the Memory Professor?
In today’s world, everybody wants shortcuts, hacks and fast tracks to success. But the brain is a muscle that it takes time to improve.
If you went to a gym you wouldn’t expect to immediately walk out looking beach body ready. The same applies to your mind.
The Memory Professor may help you to gain the cognitive skills for smoother presentations, being able to focus for longer at work or to improve your vocabulary.
Or if you’re over the age of 40 and have noticed your brain isn’t as fast or energetic as it used to be, and you’d love to feel mentally young, fresh and on the ball, then the Memory Professor may offer a brain gym to get back in mental shape.
Or if you’re in your 50s or 60s and are worried about your brain decaying as you get older, and it you’ll start to forget people’s faces or to pay the bills on time, then the Memory Professor may be the system you need to help to keep your brain sharp and clear.
However, whatever your age, having the mental capacity to learn new languages, to become a better public speaker or to be able to focus on long tasks can help to enrich your life. This is something the Brain Professor may help you to do.
Will it work for me?
The Memory Professor features the same training they provide at live corporate seminars charging $3,000 or more per session. Now you can get the same training for a fraction of the price.
The Memory Professor is different to a lot of the brain training apps out there because you can literally track your performance. Kit claims that you can expect improvements within 14 days. And if you see no improvement in your memory, mental agility, problem solving and concentration within 30 days then you get the entire Memory Professor program for free.
So if you’ve ever wanted to strengthen and enhance your mind, check out the Memory Professor to find out more.

People who dream a lot while sleeping are less likely to develop dementia. This was just one of the conclusions of a groundbreaking study that took 12 years to complete.
The study was conducted by the Boston University Medical School of 321 participants over the age of 60. They were followed for an average of 12 years and their sleep patterns recorded. This was so the researchers could see if there was a link between the amount we dream and our mental health.
Scientists are able to detect when we dream based on rapid eye movement (REM), along with higher body temperature, faster breathing and a quicker pulse, which all reflect increased brain activity.
Following the conclusion of the study, it has been concluded that REM sleep is directly linked to our mental health as we get older. The researchers’ data, for example, assessed that a single percent drop in the amount of sleeping time spent in REM increased your chances of developing dementia by 9 per cent.
But simple getting more sleep is not the answer
It was also assessed that getting more than nine hours each night could double the risk of developing dementia in 10 years compared to participants who slept for nine hours or less.
“Different stages of sleep may differentially affect key features of Alzheimer’s disease. Our findings implicate REM sleep mechanisms as predictors of dementia,” – Dr Matthew Pase from the Boston University Medical School
Steps to Improve Sleep Quality Naturally
As the research shows, simply increasing your hours of sleep is not the answer. You need to improve the quality of your sleep to gain the health benefits of dreams.
In this article we share 6 sleep hygiene tips. In addition, to improve your sleep it may help to increase your levels of melatonin. This is known as the “sleep hormone”, which your body releases naturally at bedtime to induce the relaxed state of mind you need for sleep.
It is believed that some people may be deficient in melatonin, due to staring at “blue screen” smartphones and laptops too much. Another reason is because many people don’t get enough Vitamin D from sunlight, which your body needs to produce melatonin.
Thankfully, it is possible to boost your melatonin levels with a melatonin supplement.
If you struggle with bouts of insomnia or want to increase the quality of your sleep patterns, taking a melatonin supplement at bedtime may help give your brain and body the healthy, rejuvenating sleep it craves.
Disclaimer – Melatoin is not a magic pill. Any supplement needs to be taken in combination with a healthy diet and daily exercise to gain its health benefits. Statements made in this article have not been evaluated or approved by the FDA. You should never make changes to your medication without speaking to your doctor as some natural ingredients may interfere with them. Melatonin is not designed to treat or cure any disease.
“In my lifetime, I’ve gotten to see three broad eras of preventative cardiology. In the first, we recognized the importance of diet, exercise and smoking cessation. In the second, we saw the tremendous value of lipid-lowering drugs such as statins. Now, we’re cracking the door open on the third era.” – Dr Ridker, Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston
Heart attacks now claim 600,000 lives in America every year. This is 1 in 4 premature deaths and the leading cause of preventable death in the world.
Thankfully, a new breakthrough could reduce that number by a quarter, potentially saving 150,000 lives every year.
Scientists have even gone as far as hailing is as the start of “a new era of therapeutics”. These are medicines that work in a completely different way to existing treatments. Along with lowering heart attacks, it’s hoped the new drug could halve deaths from cancer and halve cases of arthritis.
3 Health Problems from 1 Cause
The reason is because all three health problems are linked to the same cause: Inflammation. By reducing this inflammation, doctors believe the body can be protected against a number of health problems.
The drug is called “canakinumab”. Once fully available, it will be injected every three months. In a four year study of 10,000 heart attack victims, canakinumab was found to reduce heart attacks by 24 percent. These findings were presented at the European Society of Cardiology Congress in Barcelona, the world’s biggest gathering of heart experts.
“These findings represent the endgame of more than two decades of research, stemming from a critical observation: Half of heart attacks occur in people who do not have high cholesterol. For the first time, we’ve been able to definitively show that lowering inflammation independent of cholesterol reduces cardiovascular risk,” – Dr Ridker, from the Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston.
When will the treatment be available?
The new treatment is expected to cost around $57,000 annually. However, prices are expected to tumble once it is widely adopted in replacement of cholesterol lowering medications. Money would also be saved from not having to perform heart bypass operations.
Novartis, who produces canakinumab is now in the process of applying for a licence so it can be administered by doctors to treat heart attacks. It is expected to be widely available soon after that.
A new era in treating heart attacks
Until now, cholesterol lowering drugs have been promoted as the best solution to preventing a heart attack. However, as the new research reveals, lowering cholesterol alone is not enough.
It is expected that the new drug will be given to patients at the same time as statins, to lower both cholesterol and inflammation. This “twin attack” could dramatically lower the number of heart attack victims every year.
“These exciting and long-awaited trial results finally confirm that ongoing inflammation contributes to risk of heart disease, and could help save lives. The findings suggest that existing anti-inflammatory drugs, such as canakinumab, could be given along with cholesterol-lowering drugs to treat survivors and further reduce their risk of another heart attack.” – Professor Jeremy Pearson, Associate Medical Director at the British Heart Foundation

Can the Vedda Blood Sugar diet really lower your blood pressure, help you to lose weight and perhaps reverse the symptoms of type 2 diabetes? With so many diets claiming to offer such incredible results, it’s wise to be skeptical.
Micheal Dempsey’s wife was paralyzed and looked like she was close to death. And the reason wasn’t because of a horrific car accident or a deadly virus. It was because of the meds she’d been taking.
This story certainly sounds extreme and out of the ordinary. And her condition of “Diabetic Hypersomolar Syndrome” is certainly something most of us will ever have to deal with. However, what matters is what Michael did next.
Rather than watch his wife’s health continue to deteriorate, Michael took her destiny into his own hands.
A journey to discover what is making people sick
Michael went on a mission to get answers. He’d seen firsthand how pharmaceutical drugs cant, wont and never will improve or cure diabetes. All they can do is manage the symptoms.
With high blood sugar and diabetes increasing 60% in the last decade and putting people at higher risk of heart disease, nerve damage and kidney problems, Michael was determined to find a way of getting his wife’s blood sugar and health problems under control.
He’d watched as his wife went from being the “sparkly one” to putting on weight, developing high blood pressure, high cholesterol and suffered nerve damage. And the doctors didn’t seem to have any answers on what to do.
Luckily, for Michael and his wife he has a chance encounter with an old man from Sri Lanka called Lakma in the hospital’s waiting room.
Laka told Michael how the Vedda tribe from his homeland NEVER suffered from the health problems Michael’s wife was experiencing. And that it was a place where diabates didnt even exist.
An unusual recipe book sent in the mail
Hoping Lakma may be a messenger from the heavens, Michael begged Lakma to share more information about the Vedda people.
Lakma agreed to help and sent Michael a recipe book in the mail. This book revealed some unusual recipes you’d never normally see served at a Western dinner table. However, most of the ingredients were available from the local grocery store. So Michael decided to give some a try.
106 volunteers grows to 37,878 people
Micheal was able to rope in 106 volunteers to trying out his Sri Lankan recipes for lowering blood sugar. And the results were astounding.
While Micheal doesn’t go into details, he does reveal in his video that the recipes helped the volunteers to:
- Lose ugly belly fat
- lower their cholesterol
- Lower their blood pressure
- Gain more energy
- Gain more muscle tone
The results were so impressive that he fed the same recipes to his sick wife. She then managed to lose 35 pounds in just 33 days.
Since then, Michael claims that over 37,878 people have benefited from his “Vedda Blood Sugar Diet” food program, which he now sells online.
If you’d like to know Michael’s full story, how he devised his blood sugar lowering food program and how you can get hold of his recipe book, Michael has created a video in which he reveals how he developed the Vedda Blood Sugar diet.
But Does it Work?
It’s impossible to know if Michael’s story is completely true or whether 37,878 people have been helped to lower their blood sugar thanks to his diet.
However, ultimately what his recipe book CAN do is encourage you to eat healthier meals, free from processed sugars and carbs. This should be done in tandem with getting daily exercise.
We share 4 steps to lowering blood sugar in this post. So if you do decide to give Michael’s Vedda Blood Sugar Diet a try, I recommend you follow our 4 steps as well to give you the best chance of getting your blood sugar under control over the long-term.

Want to improve your memory and mental performance?
Then you may be interested to know of a recent study that discovered a common everyday herb that can improve your memory 75%.
This is a herb that ancient Greek scholars wore on their robes thousands of years ago to improve their performance at exams.
And now modern day students are rushing to get hold of it too, with sales rocketing 187% in the last few months.
The ancient Greeks are famous for making advanced discoveries ahead of their time.
This includes deducing that the world is round and circles the sun…
As well as inventing democracy, the water mill, maps and geometry.
Is it a coincidence that the Greeks were so smart and wore this herb on their robes?
However, a study by Northumbria University in Newcastle, England, concluded that the aroma of this herb can, indeed, dramatically boost memory and problem solving.
Co-researcher Jemma McCready, said:
“The difference between the two groups was 60-75 percent…one group would remember to do seven things compared with four tasks completed by those who did not smell the oil, and they were quicker. These findings may have implications for treating individuals with memory impairments.”
What is this miraculous herb that may enhance the brains of millions of students, business professionals and seniors?
You can find out in our free report, entitled “7 Natural Brain Boosters”.
It also reveals an ancient spice used by India’s ‘memory masters’ to recite long poems and 100-digit numbers.
And a nut known as the ‘golden nugget of brain power’ because of its abundance of omega-3, vitamin E and other brain boosting super nutrients.
As well as a common garden vegetable that’s a rich natural source of the vitamins needed for healthy brain development and cognition.
