Cure baldness! Gout, kidney stones, and make monkeys fly!
Patent Medicines are nothing new, around 1900 many contained up to 80% alcohol plus their secret ingredients. Sometimes that meant that cocaine, heroin, morphine, laudanum, etc were added. I'm sure granny felt a lot better with a shot of booze and a line of cocaine but it didn't cure her illness.
google patent medicne or nostrum, there are some pretty good sites with the old cures and machinery, entertaining to say the least.
How bout some bottled water? Did you know Evian spelled backwards was naive? Most of the natural spring water comes from municipal taps and look how much they make from it.
What does immunocal have in it?
This is cut from the site "The product is additive-free; the sole ingredient is undenatured whey protein isolate"
Which you can buy in a health food store at a better price.
Would I consider using undenatured whey protein isolate? maybe, I use a scoop of protein mix in my smoothies, use a green mix sometimes, but what I have found when you do a little research is that there are economical sources to buy supplements.
Is Glutathione needed? apparently so, the effectiveness of taking it orally appears to be in question, the precursor amino acid cysteine might be the supplement to take but you would have to do some research.
Glutathione occurs naturally in many foods, if you are following a low carb diet but high in fresh veggies and fruit you are probably getting enough.
If you are taking a multi vitamin, or supplementing with vitamin E and C you've got some some additional anti oxidant protection.
I am a believer in reducing free radicals, our cells get hit 10,000 times a day by free radicals, and while they do a good job of repairing themselves they do eventually start deteriorating, it was 100% to begin with , but then its 99%, 98% etc.
Got wrinkles? its because your skin cells are not being repaired at 100%, think about the damage that you can't see.
I supplement with about 2 dozen vitamins, spices and herbs so I'm no stranger to trying new things.
The prefabricated potions and pills that are targeted to diabetics I avoid like the plague because while they have a little bit of the things I am taking they don't have enough in potency to have any therapuetic value.
So when someone tries to sell you a bill of goods, research it, and talk to your health care professional. You have to manage your own disease and be in the drivers seat.
