Beware False Readings


A fitness trainer I know looked at the recent photo of me and actor James Caan and exclaimed, "Eat more protein! You're losing too much weight!"

Was he right?

While in LA, I had my blood work done and a nutritional profile worked up. The nutritionist called me when the results were in and exclaimed, "You're eating too much protein! Cut it out!"

Was he right?

When the lab sent the blood work results back, I got a call with someone saying, "Your cholesterol is too high!"

Was he right?

I had a friend who is a medical doctor review the lab results and he said, "I think this is a false reading."

A what?

He went on to explain that I was badly dehydrated the day they took my blood, so my levels were off. He didn't think my cholesterol was high at all. And my protein intake was probably fine.

Interesting, isn't it?

In every situation -- whether health or marketing related -- I think we need to get second opinions from professionals, and then compare notes and look at variables.

What appears to be reality may in fact be a "false reading."

This is true in marketing, as well.

A mailing may not do well and someone will blame the list, when in fact it may have been a lousy headline...or a poor offer...or...?

Beware false readings.

Ao Akua,

PS - As a result of the temporary scare that I may have had high cholesterol, I discovered a physician-created new supplement that is guaranteed to lower bad cholesterol, raise good cholesterol, and also help prevent heart attack and stroke. This is pharmaceutical-grade, all natural, and proven to work -- in only 30 days. It contains a "secret ingredient" that no other supplement on the market has. This "secret" helps prevent heart attack and stroke. I'm so excited that I invested $12,500 in the company just to insure that I'll get the stuff as soon as it's ready. I'd tell you more about it but the next batch of this special cholesterol-lowering formula won't be ready for three weeks. Personally, I can't wait. Stay tuned.

PPS - NLP/Hypnosis/Persuasion expert Kevin Hogan and I had a fun time at a photo session last summer. See the silly and not-so-silly pictures of us and study our body language (a specialty of Kevin's) at http://kevinhogan.com/hoganvitale.htm See any false readings there?

Hi Joe,

I just remembered that "The Secret" was supposed to go live today on TV so I went to your blog to find out some info and I was surprised that you didn't mention it. Then I went to TV Guide and I couldn't find it.

Just curious, is it going live?

Thanks,

Jay

Dear Mr Fire

Would like you to know one should be able to reduce "outta control" cholesterol levels by simply doing liver flushes every now and then. I personally do this and drs are absolutely amazed/stunned when they read my numbers. Im "ageless" and, at least, carry 40# of excess adipose tissue (for now). It hurts my soul when I KNOW "bad" cholesertol levels can be lowered overnight (w/a bit of prep work if necessary). And if done every now and then can further reduce levels to where its no longer a challenge.

Hi Joe, I voted for your blog! Massive good luck on beating Harry Potter :)

I'm heading back after posting this to listen to your new podcast!

The next information sounds like an ad but please don't let that put you off. The information could change your life, and the lives of those you love, for the better.

My sister Deb had a heart attack on June 21st of last year at the age of 48, here are her before and after readings after being on ProvexCV & Phytomega (which is part of our Heart Health line) after only 2 months, and again at 7 months,
after her heart attack.

At the time of her heart attack:

Triglycerides-(Bad for you)...199 after two months ...143
after 7 months...83
LDL-(Bad for you)...173
after two months...41
after 7 months...56

HDL-(Good for you)...41
after two months...40
after 7 months...48

Cholesterol-(Combined)...256
after two months...110
after 7 months...121

Deb's doctor is now weaning her off all prescription drugs and she will be totally independent of them by June!

One of my best friends, Jackie, has been on high blood pressure medication for longer than she cares to think about. I started her on the same Heart Health line that my sister is on. After only a little over a month she had her check up
and her Doctor thought the blood pressure machine was broke so she started banging it on the counter to make sure it wasn't stuck at the reading from a prior patient before testing Jackie again. The same reading came back so the doctor
called in the nurse for a new blood pressure machine. The same reading for the 3rd time! Are you sitting down? LOL! Here are her before and after readings:

Before 190/200 (Full Dose of Prescription Blood Pressure Medication)

After one month 112/60 (Blood Pressure Medication cut in half)

After 4 months 132/70 (Blood Pressure Medication still cut in half)

Jackie's next check up will be in June.
