Reduce pain and fight heart disease with one supplement
When I was in medical school, the professors taught that American natives had a genetic resistance to vascular disease. At that time, heart disease among these peoples was still uncommon. Not so anymore. It is more than rampant. A recent study found out why.
For eons, the Alaskan Eskimos ate out of the sea. Until recently, like other Native Americans, they didn't get heart disease. This study followed 686 Eskimos over the age of 35. The researchers found that a high intake of omega-3 fatty acids reduced the thickness of their carotid arteries.
Many decades ago, Westin Price, DDS traveled the world. He marveled at the robust health of indigenous peoples. Then 20 years later on returning, he discovered tragic decay in their health. He directly correlated it with the introduction of western food into their diet.
And so it was with the American Indian and the Eskimo, now suffering from diabetes and heart disease.

Wherever you are, emphasize the foods that grow around you when in season. That's what nature provides and altering that "Law of Nature" is the surest way to physical deterioration.
Omega-3 fatty acids are great for reducing your pain and protecting your heart. They also reduce inflammation throughout your body, protecting you from many other diseases.
There are a few different ways to get omega-3 fatty acids. You can eat more wild fish, but make sure it's cold water fish, such as wild Alaskan salmon. These have the lowest levels of mercury. You can also take fish oil gel cap, like the one that comes with your Healthy Resolve multivitamin. Or, if you're a vegetarian, you can try Neuromins, a sea algae-derived omega-3. I also eat chia seeds, flaxseed, and hemp oil, which is fantastic.
I hope you have a great Thanksgiving weekend. I'm going to take Friday off to enjoy some time with my family, so there won't be an alert on Friday. I'll see you again next week.
Yours for better health and medical freedom,
