[Alert] URGENT Colonoscopy Warning for Seniors

I can tell you one thing about mainstream doctors: they’re bad at math.

Because if they are looking at the same numbers I am, there is NO WAY they would ever suggest you get a colonoscopy.

Year after year, we learn more about how WORTHLESS this “routine” procedure is… and conventional medicine STILL keeps pushing them.

Why?

You guessed it… money.

Every time you say yes to having this uncomfortable test… your doc’s dream of buying that beach house get a little closer to reality.

But I’m here to tell you why you should think twice before you agree to (and pay for) your next colonoscopy.

Let me show you.

Here’s what your mainstream doc will tell you about statistics the dangers of having a colonoscopy.

1 in a 1000 people die after the procedure.

That may sound like a small risk: you have a 1 in 1,000 chance of dying if you have a coloscopy.

But here is what you probably don’t know…

Doctors use a mathematical formula to determine whether they should proceed with a test (or drug) and it is called: The Number Needed.

For coloscopies, the number needed is 1250.

That means doctors need to perform 1250 colonoscopies to find one person with cancer.

Look at the math: 1.25 people die in order to find 1 person with cancer.

Those numbers certainly don’t add up for me!

Complications during a colonoscopy screening are a whopping 10x HIGHER than for any other commonly used cancer screening test.

These include:

  • Internal bleeding
  • Severe anemia
  • Heart attack
  • Stroke
  • Pulmonary embolism
  • Pneumonia
  • Kidney failure
  • Intestinal obstruction
  • And acute disruption of the microbiome.

The biggest problem is that the equipment is hard to clean and infections are very common. Other problems include perforation and bleeding, both of which can cause death.

So, if you want to avoid unnecessary colonoscopies – and the dangers that come with them – you need to focus on your gut health.

And the easiest way to do that is with a probiotic.

You don’t need anything fancy. The ones are your local pharmacy will get the job done… and help you avoid this dangerous procedure.
