Beware of False information. Sleazy
March 22, 2024
Scammed over Natural Health Response. Called to question email about new subscription. Niagil assured me that the service would be FREE for 3 months. A few days later I got a notification from my bank that the subscription to Natural Health Response was declined...sent at 4:23 am. WOKE ME UP. Fortunately my bank declined the charge. Scammy outfit.

I have to agree he is BS and a pathological liar and conman and a German that gives his country a bad reputation and thats putting it mildly. He should be prosecuted and banned from advertising himself. He is a typical LIAR

Use the supplement for the intended purpose.

I ordered the “InControl” supplement to improve urinary continence (I was 74 then); I took only some of the capsules in the bottle and then stopped because I felt so improved and that was a year ago. However, to be completely “restored” I just decided to finish the bottle and possibly another one. It definitely worked for me! Female in Atlanta

I've taken a bottle of 60 of these pills and notice no difference in my leg nerves. I have one leg problem because I ran for 60 years playing sports. Bruce Parker

Book is not free, but he gives some details.

It is irritating that there is only audio instead of a transcript. Worse, his claim that his book is free is simply misleading. I'll give you a free car -- but you have to buy the tires for $45,000.

On the other hand, he does at least tell the wearied listener what the 'three lies' of the medical profession are: fat is bad, exercise is all good (I'm foggy on this one), and aspirin taken regularly is good for you.

He also says that a high (good) fat and low carb diet is good for you and can regenerate the brain. For muscle regeneration, he advocates ketones and MCT. I didn't listen to the end, but I presume he hawks products that contain this things. MCT is medium-chain triglyceride...
