I’m a skeptic.
I’m constantly traveling the globe in search of new information and experts in various fields. Even if someone is an “expert” on a topic, I’m not afraid to question him. I even encourage my team to question me…
“Trust, but verify” is a phrase they often hear.
I’m also willing to admit when I’m not an expert.
Some of the hottest stories of the past few years have been about cryptocurrencies. More specifically, bitcoin. I’ve had subscribers asking if and how they should invest.
Bitcoin isn’t my area of expertise. But I do know someone who is an expert… Tama Churchouse.
When it comes to cryptocurrencies, Tama is one of the most well-connected guys out there.
Tama sits on the board of directors of the company that launched the most successful cryptocurrency distribution in history. And he routinely speaks with bitcoin millionaires and the little-known computer programmers who are developing new cryptocurrencies right now.
On Wednesday night, Tama and a secret CEO guest joined Porter Stansberry and Jared Kelly to discuss what’s going on with cryptocurrencies.
During the two-hour special presentation, they explained…
- Why investors are afraid of bitcoin
- Why cryptocurrencies aren’t in a bubble
- How it’s getting easier for average folks to use bitcoin
- The ways you should and shouldn’t invest
- Where the best opportunities are right now
Porter said that this is “the dawn of a new kind of capitalism… a new type of economy.” It’s not often Porter gets this excited.
During the event, we launched a brand-new service from our corporate affiliate, Stansberry Churchouse Research, called Crypto Capital.
Every month in Crypto Capital, Tama will share crypto recommendations that he says “could realistically make you five, 10, even as much as 100 times your money.”
After the special presentation, some of my friends in California told me they were so excited about the investment possibilities that they immediately subscribed to Crypto Capital. And I’ve heard several of my colleagues in our office in Baltimore have made their first bitcoin investments.
So am I still a skeptic? Yes, but now I plan on learning more. And I plan to learn from the expert. I suggest you do, too.
If you’ve ever been curious about cryptocurrencies, this is the best chance you’ll get to learn. And with a 30-day risk-free trial, you’ve got nothing to lose.

Q: How do I know if a drug company is paying my doctor? – T.D.
A: ProPublica (one of my favorite nonprofit watchdog groups), along with several other organizations, created a database to show which doctors have been paid by pharmaceutical and medical-device companies. You can search by doctor name, university name, or state. We did a simple search of California and found doctors in the state that have been paid in the tens of millions of dollars by drug companies. To find out which, if any, drug companies are paying your doctor, visit http://projects.propublica.org/docdollars/.
Q: Not sure if you have addressed this problem before, but my sleep is interrupted nightly by the need to go to the bathroom once or twice nightly. This negatively affects my sleep, sometimes I go right back to sleep, sometimes not.
I have had the necessary tests and all is normal including a prostate size normal for my age, 69.
There are several products out there that tout results to reduce the size of the prostate, and of course reduce or eliminate associated problems.
Is there any diet or supplement solutions? – N.P.
A: Waking up once or more to urinate at night is called nocturia.
Now, nocturia may result from underlying medical conditions. These include things like diabetes, swelling of the lower legs, sleep apnea, prostate enlargement, and tumors in the bladder or prostate.
Another cause is anxiety. That’s one reason we always recommend getting control of your stress and taking steps to calm your anxiety through things like meditation, yoga, and soothing scents.
Medications may cause nocturia as well. In particular, diuretics for high blood pressure increase your need to urinate. As far as supplements go, there just aren’t any good, randomized trials to prove efficacy for any of the most common herbal treatments. Take a look at this study from Reviews in Urology.
Diet is a key factor here, as well. Drinking excessively, especially late in the day, is a common culprit for nocturia. Alcohol and caffeinated drinks also increase the need to go during the night. Some foods also irritate the bladder, so eating them – particularly late in the day or in the evening – can cause problems. These include spicy or acidic foods, chocolate, and artificial sweeteners.
Try cutting back on these foods to see if that might alleviate the problem. In fact, I’d recommend keeping a log and tracking not only what you eat and drink, but when you consume them as well as your emotional state. Also, try Kegel exercises to build your pelvic-muscle strength. (We covered that here.) If cutting back on trigger foods and liquids, reducing anxiety, and trying exercise don’t work, you should talk to your doctor about other possible physical conditions.
