Inhibition of K2 by Drugs and Vegetable Oils The Real Reason Behind Diabetes and Cardiovascular Disease?

As pharmacists we have seen a dramatic increase in statin drugs over the years, as well as dramatic increases in diabetes, weight gain, muscle aches and pains, along with depletion of Coq10 and now vitamin K2.

Research has shown that vegetable oils also inhibit natural production of K2, and knowing how prevelant they are in the standard american diet, our nation is set up for even greater k2 depletion.

Vitamin K2 activates proteins that are made in different organs in the body—clotting factors in the liver, osteocalcin in bones and Matrix Gla Protein (MGP) in the vasculature. These proteins help coagulate blood, bind calcium to the surface of bones and keep calcium from depositing in the arteries and soft tissues.

K2 has shown profound benefits for metabolic, cardiovascular and bone health. One study shown how it reversed the calcification of arterial plaques in postmenopausal females, while popular “heart healthy” drugs such as the cholesterol lowering statins...

The most important ingredient to becoming the 'obvious expert'

Some of you are the obvious expert, and some of you want to and should be the obvious expert in your market...and when you are, it makes all the difference.

It literally is that simple.

If you break your business down to these 5 components…you cannot go wrong.

Last week I covered two areas; problem solving and adding value. The problem solver is a no-brainer, it’s something that we have been trained very well on as pharmacists. Problem solving is the most basic thing you can do to de-commoditize yourself in your practice.

But we can do more, right?

Then I talked about continuously adding value, this is what turns a...

The Factor That Takes “Problem Solving” To The Next Level

I remember years ago when I went for primary training at PCCA, one of the messages that I walked away with was that as compounders, we are problem solvers.

And this is so true…to this day problem solving is part of my business mantra…

“Business is a game of who communicates best, solves problems, continually adds value, and acts now…Wins!”

As you see, I have 4 keys to this mantra, and as they are all equally important, I would like to highlight one in particular that takes problem solving to the next level- continuously Adding value.

Think about it- where solving a major problem for someone is an amazing thing, it can be a one hit wonder for them, just a one-time shopping experience.

But continually adding value you are creating a customer, and business for life.

Continually adding value keeps people coming back for more. Only focusing on solving problems, you may be a hero today, but gone tomorrow.

And let’s be honest. Allopathic drugs are a...
