What would you consider to be the greatest medicine of all?
Antibiotics? They’ve saved lives, but they have also destroyed our guts and spurred the development of “Superbugs” that resist our strongest antibiotics and pose a threat to your life.
Antidepressants (SSRIs)? Sure, they’ve forced serotonin to hang around in people’s brains to create artificial “happiness” but they can also worsen depression and lead to aggressive behavior and suicidal tendencies—certainly nothing to be “happy” about.
Proton pump inhibitors (PPIs)? They do what they’re supposed to—shut down your stomach acid—which in turn destroys your digestion, reduces nutrient absorption (increasing your risk of fractures) and makes you more susceptible to food-borne illness.
Statins? Don’t get me started. This email would be a book if I were to list all the dangers of shutting down your liver’s ability to make cholesterol—which is a very health-giving, necessary substance (that is if you happen to like having hormones and proper brain and nervous system function).
Then what IS the greatest medicine of all?
The greatest medicine of all, my friend, is to teach people how not to need it.
And that is why I am in your life.
When you take measures to create a better state of health in your body, you are naturally decreasing your chances of developing a sickness or disease and lessening your need for medications!
Now, there will always be times where medications are necessary and appropriate, but trust me, we have gone WAY overboard and have thrown healthy habits to the wind while we pop “thy daily meds.”
So if you want to get on the road to a healthier you and lessen your chances of needing medication, I’m here to guide you.
Step 1: You are what you eat
If you eat junk, you can count on living a sickly, medicated existence—it’s a given.
What has worsened our nutritional ignorance is that many doctors to this day tell patients that diet doesn’t matter. That’s as ridiculous as saying it doesn’t matter if you put gas in your car—it should be able to run just fine without it.
But the great thing is no matter where you’re starting from, eating better foods will most certainly have a positive effect on your health!
The more you gravitate toward real foods the more your body will thank you for things like less constipation, gas and bloating, more energy and less heartburn.
Eventually, as your body becomes “cleaner” and properly nourished, you can also see things like better sleep, fewer aches and pains, clearer skin, improved moods and even lower blood pressure.

Step 2: Supplement as necessary
Very few supplements are needed by everyone. Our biochemical individuality (in other words, our body’s own unique needs and circumstances) makes us different so very seldom will two people have the exact same needs.
That being said, there are two supplements that are the exceptions to this rule and are right for just about everyone:
Probiotics like Super Shield are pretty universally helpful because we ALL face challenges to our gut flora balance which can, in turn, hamper our digestion and impair our immune system functioning—two things that have a major impact on our health from head to toe.
And as far as multi-vitamins go, it used to be that only people who suspected deficiencies needed to take a multi, but that’s all changed.
Our food is not as nutritious as it used to be, plus factors like stress and medication use can affect your body’s ability to absorb and use nutrients from your foods, so our reality today is that a top-quality multivitamin like Super Core is a good idea for just about everyone.
Beyond probiotics and multivitamins, it’s a matter of individual needs. For example:
VitalMega-3 fish oil formula can help reduce inflammation, which is helpful with high blood pressure, arthritis and elevated cholesterol.
Hydroxaden 2.5 can help turn around vitamin B12 deficiency. Common symptoms of B12 deficiency are low energy and mental fog.
Digestizol Max can help support your body’s enzyme needs and promote better digestion.
My personal regimen
You may be curious about my personal regimen, so here it is:
What I take
Super Shield and Super Core: I want to do all I can to ensure a strong functioning immune system, sound digestion and have all nutrient bases covered. And I can’t tell you the last time I had a cold or any other illness.
VitalMega-3: I’m 53 years old and still doing karate (including fighting), plus I also run four days a week and am training for a marathon. I need to keep inflammation under control!
What I do NOT take
Any medications. Don’t need them at all.
And I want to do all I can to help YOU reach the point where you are enjoying a strong, disease-free state of health!
