  • Doctor Recommended Multi-Vitamin: Plus or Minus?

    Choosing a dietary supplement can be confusing. So many choices. So many “experts”. Since about 70% of Americans take a Multi-Vitamin supplement, this potential confusion effects many of us. The number one selling daily multi is also the number one “doctor recommended” multi. This would indicate that quite a few of us have decided to let the medical community guide us to the best choice. Problem solved, or problem created?

    When a Doctor with no training in therapeutic nutrition asserts their opinion on supplements, it raises suspi- cions in my mind. When I examine the labels of the products that they promote, my suspicions are confirmed.

    Let’s examine a typical label:

  • Is Nerve Pain Contagious?

    I will begin by stating that nerve pain is NOT contagious, and confess to using a provocative title to peak your interest. And while nerve pain may not be contagious, the steady rise of this category of complaints makes one wonder what is going on. Here is a brief quote from “Multiple causes of neuropathic pain have been described and its incidence is likely to increase owing to the ageing global population, increased incidence of diabetes mellitus and improved survival from cancer after chemotherapy.”

    Certainly some nerve pain is attributed to injury, repetitive stress, sciatica, etc. But is the rise in these problems due to an actual increase in injuries, or is something changing in the nerves as well?

  • Do You REALLY Need a Multi-Vitamin?

    Experts disagree, but that shouldn’t surprise anyone. What matters is how you answer the above question. On the issue of the necessity of a Multi-Vitamin supplement, most folks fall into one of three camps:

    1. “A good diet is adequate for our nutritional needs. No one suffers from clinical nutrient deficiencies these days. A Multi-Vitamin just gives you expensive urine.”
    2. “You might as well take a Multi-Vitamin just in case. It may make a difference. I take an inexpensive one from the drug store. No sense in wasting money.”
    3. “I eat very well, but I doubt that I’ll age gracefully without some extra help. A Multi-Vitamin is the anchor of my approach to maintaining optimal nutrition. I want a comprehensive formula at a good price.”

  • Multiple Vita-Mins, Multiple Questions

    The Multi Vita-Min supplement is a daily part of at least 70% of American’s quest for good health. In the last three decades, as the variety and scope of Dietary Supplements has exploded, the Multi Vita-Min remains an anchor supplement.

    This is not to imply that this iconic daily supplement has remained static. We now can choose between One-Per-Day, Two-Per-Day, Three-Per-Day, up to Six- Per-Day, Men’s, Men’s over 40, Men’s over 55, Women’s, Women’s over 40, Women’s over 55, Infant, Toddler’s, Children’s, Teen’s, Food-Based, Food Grown, Powders, Liquids, Isotonic, Liposomal, Tablets, Capsules, Softgels, Chewables, Gummies, … and the list goes on.

    In my 5 decades of working with, and answering the wide range of queries from thousands of Dietary Supplement Consumers, I have been asked quite a few questions concerning Multi Vita-Mins. Perhaps the perspective of a long-time Natural Foods Industry veteran will help you make sense of all this.

  • Bill Sardi: David Stouder Remembers

    Bill Sardi was a force of Nature. And though he is no longer here with us, his impact is still felt today. I expect to repeat the preceding sentence long into the future.

    Those of us who know Bill could talk about his many books identifying powerful health strategies; his voluminous articles packed with insights on nutrition, the economy, and society; the ground-breaking supplements he formulated; and the hours he spent on the phone with many of you reading this article.

    While running my vitamin store in Northern California, Bill Sardi entered my life which changed it forever.

    Your doctors can’t figure out what is ailing you.  You are plagued by a number of disparate symptoms that don’t appear to be related.  Chronic stomach problems (chronic bloating, burping, flatulence, diarrhea, undigested food in stool), fatigue, brain fog, brittle nails, recurrent intestinal infections, allergies, asthma, the appearance of tiny blood vessels on the cheeks and nose, unexplained acne, and nausea when taking vitamin pills may have a common origin.

    You may even chronically suffer with skin conditions like psoriasis, vitiligo and eczema.  You may lose weight for no reason.  You may experience regurgitation of stomach acid into your esophagus that results in painful heartburn.  In a misdirection, your doctor may then prescribe an antacid.  You may have had your gall bladder surgically removed and you still find no relief from your symptoms.  You don’t know whether to eat or skip eating because of all the symptoms you experience.

  • Critical Care Nurses Fight Back Tears As Hospital Patients At Death’s Door Are Miraculously Being Rescued By Vitamin Therapy

    It’s worth clicking through to look at Dr. Paul Merik as he speaks at about saving thousands of lives with vitamin C therapy and see the medical student in the background wiping back her tears….. For the first time, after hundreds of failed drug trials, patients are rapidly recovering from blood poisoning (aka sepsis) and leaving the hospital three days later.  And this discovery doesn’t come from Johns Hopkins Medical Center, Harvard Medical School or the Mayo Clinic.  How about Eastern Virginia Medical School!

    Click to hear a nurse speak:  “We would just go day and after day, they (the patients) just weren’t getting any better… it (vitamin therapy) just seemed too simple…. We thought it had to be a fluke, but we had patients getting better. Patients were turning around quickly, within 12 hours.  They would be at death’s door, and 12 hours later they were 50% better… we have seen patients walk out of here that we didn’t think would leave alive.  I have goose bumps now.”

  • How much would you be willing to pay for a multivitamin that delivers this?

    Is there any reason why you wouldn’t buy the world’s most comprehensive multivitamin given that it has just now become more affordable?

    Thank you for buying MOLECULAR MULTI. Now, because more people like you purchased MOLECULAR MULTI, and because there is no middle man, and because we have now been able to buy raw materials in quantity, we can pass BIG savings on to you. (Buy 3 bottles @$56.42 and get 2 FREE).

  • Hidden Epidemic: Death By Hospital

    It is only a matter of time now……. we must read between the lines.  Public health authorities are not forthcoming about a fungal infection that has been stealthily killing people for over a decade.  There will be no safe place to run to.  Hospitals will be cordoned off.  Nurses will refuse to go to work.  Human populations will die off in large numbers, starting in areas where anti-fungal herbicides have been employed that spawn drug resistance, as an ongoing public health threat that has been hidden for too long, spreads beyond hospital walls and now cannot be reversed.  That is a predictable scenario given the following facts that have been hidden for too long.

    Health authorities are not going to tell the public what is really going on.  Most hospitals are threatened with being quarantined and even shuttered if not completely avoided by a frightened public. Visitors will not be allowed to enter.  The health threat posed by a treatment-resistant fungus – Candida auris – is unprecedented.  It has a 30-60% mortality rate!

  • 200+ Year Lifespan?

    If What Has Been Demonstrated In The
    Animal Lab Can Be Achieved In Humans,
    Some Individuals May Live 200+ Years

    • Mankind is achieving small increases in “adult mortality reductions” that produce unprecedented longevity in modern day populations in developed countries.
    • An even greater (2.7-fold) increase in the human lifespan could possibly be achieved by making up for a genetic flaw in humans, the same genetic flaw that was recently overcome in the animal lab to produce extraordinary longevity.
    • Habitual vitamin C intake throughout the day with non-toxic oral doses that far exceed current recommendations by public health agencies could theoretically expand the human lifespan beyond belief. Currently only a few people currently adhere to such a vitamin regimen.
