Big Pharma's Phony Heart Drug Failure
By: Al Sears,
Get this: Big Pharma giant Merck has
been trying to re-package one of Nature's most potent heart health allies and sell it to you as a heart
They heavily lobbied the FDA to get it approved in the U.S. But a few weeks ago they had
to pull it from the approval process.1
Why? Because their drug didn't quite have the effect they
wanted it to.
In a clinical trial, they gave half the people this new drug - a combination of a
synthetic form of a vitamin and a synthetic molecule that reduces facial "flushing." The other half got only
a statin drug.
They wanted the combination of statins and their new drug to work ... but it
didn't go so well. In fact, Merck suggested the side effects were worse than expected.
What they don't tell you in any of their press releases is that people taking only the new
"drug" had skin and stomach side effects and experienced flushing.
On top of that, when they
added a statin to the mix, people got myopathy which is nonfunctional and painful muscles, and
rhabdomyolysis which is the painful disintegration of muscles.2 These are typical statin side effects.
So what was in the new "drug" Merck was trying to create?

The Memory Thief in
Your Morning Meal
By: Kelley Herring, Healing
According to a recent Harris Interactive study, there is something that
people fear more than cancer and even death: Dementia
The inability to recall fond memories, use reasoning and logic, or even recognize the faces of the
people you love is a disturbing thought. It's a fate that most of us would do anything to avoid.
Yet, for more than five million Americans and their families, this is a reality of day to day life. And
unfortunately, dementia and Alzheimer's disease are on the rise.
Between 2000 and 2010, deaths
from Alzheimer's disease increased 68 percent
! According to
the Alzheimer's Association, an average of one American is diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease every 68
seconds. By 2050, it's estimated that two people will be diagnosed with this disease every minute of every
But there is good news...
Alzheimer's is not a genetic disease. It is a
degenerative condition that is not a normal part of healthy aging. It can definitely be prevented and in
some cases the symptoms can even be reversed.
And the answer to protecting your mind and your
memories lies in your diet...

Loss May Reduce Heart Disease, Diabetes Risks in Middle-Aged Women
Modest weight loss over 2 years in overweight or obese,
middle-aged women may reduce risk factors for heart disease and diabetes, according to new research
published in the Journal of the American Heart Association.
In a study of 417 women participating in weight loss programs for up
to 24 months, those who sustained a 10 percent or more loss of their body weight for two years reduced their
total cholesterol, LDL "bad" cholesterol, HDL "good" cholesterol, triglycerides, insulin, glucose and
inflammation markers. Women who had the highest levels of risk at the start of the study benefited the most
from modest weight loss.
"It is challenging to
lose weight, but if women commit to losing 10 percent of their body weight and sustain that over time, it
can have a large impact on overall risk factors associated with heart disease and diabetes," said Cynthia A.
Thomson, Ph.D., R.D., co-author and Professor in the Mel and Enid Zuckerman College of Public Health and
Director of the University of Arizona Canyon Ranch Center for Prevention & Health Promotion in Tucson.
The women, an average 44 years old and weighing
nearly 200 pounds at the start of the study, were recruited within the communities of the University of
California, San Diego; University of Minnesota; University of Arizona; and Kaiser Permanente Center
Northwest in Portland, Ore.
Factors that may
affect creeping weight gain in middle-aged women include sedentary jobs, repeated pregnancy and the
transition to menopause. In the end, a large percent of middle-aged American women find themselves weighing
much more in their forties than they weighed in their teens, Thomson said
Women in short-term weight loss programs usually do better with
weight loss in the first six months and then they start to rebound, researchers said.
"Our study revealed the need for healthcare providers to provide
women with longer-term support for weight control. It seems to pay off in terms of modifying risk factors
for obesity-related disease," Thomson said.
"The good news is that when you lose weight long-term, you just don't move to a smaller dress
size, you are actually moving these risk factors markedly and likely reducing your risk of heart disease and
diabetes," Thomson said.

Rapid Fat Loss Goal Setting and Achievement
By: Scott Mendelson
My wife and I are committed this year to
reaching the best shape of our lives, however previously while earning good progress for the first couple of
months, the periods following were not as productive -leaving us well short of our goals. Specifically I
want a six pack and my wife wants to reduce the body fat in the buttocks and upper leg area.
What goal setting and achievement strategies do you suggest to clients to finally reach life-long goals?
Mark and Wendy
Mark & Wendy,
Your rate of success will come
down to consistently executing the right tasks for an extended period of time to build metabolic and
hormonal momentum. Your lack of success following the first couple of months of your prior routine
indicates that the training and nutrition program became stale and ultimately ineffective. Repeating
those tactics would be planning to fail! You and Wendy will earn fantastic fat loss progress over the
short and long term when you improve the quality of your training sessions by implementing the tips from our
. Get Specific and Ditch Your Scale
Your goals need to be measurable which
is why I would conduct a body fat percentage test every 6-8 weeks by calipers (expertise needed), Dexa Scan,
Bod Pod or Hydrostatic Under Water Weighing. The scale does not provide an accurate measure of
progress because it does not account for lean muscle tissue. Losing muscle is the quickest way to
higher body fat levels by reducing the size of the calorie burning engine. We ask clients for pictures from
the front, back and side on the same day as the body fat percentage tests to further gauge progress.
To show off a great six pack you will need to get your body fat percentage between 10 and 12%. Based
on the pictures you sent with your profile, your current body fat percentage is 25-27% which may be a real
eye opener; however you can use this reality to build up motivation levels...
