2012 will be over in a few hours and we wanted to remember the highlights during this year for our team. How to describe 2012 seen by the five of us?
A challenging year
This year has been a real challenge for us in terms of time management because we had set high goals, trying to give the best of us:
- in our jobs, taking care of patients, staying up-to-date with medical news
- in our families, with our beloved ones and friends
- and of course here in our site, to give you the best information about ephedrine and pseudoephedrine, in all aspects, legality, safety, where to buy ephedrine for weight loss or for cold, asthma and allergies, proper dosage for EC stacks, etc…
The best part is that we have been in touch with many people, we have tried to answer most emails, we have shared our point of view with “normal people” like you and us in forums but also with experts, bodybuilders, journalists, etc… Each time we gave our unbiased, honest point of view on this amazing alkaloid, not the point of view of officials like politicians who are stuck between drug control and health issues for honest patients, not the point view of vendors who try to sell you fake ephedra as miracle diet pills. As we say, politicians care about power, companies care about money, doctors care about people. It may not be always true but from our experience, it is most of the time.
Quality information: it takes time to build trust
As an example, take what we consider as our best article in 2012: our review of the health risks and benefits of coffee and caffeine, because of its key role in the famous EC stack. As explained in our post “Coffee, A True Wonder Drug: The Making Of“, it has been tough to select 40 medical studies out of thousands published since decades, to give you a better understanding of research methodology explaining why we have medical evidence or not, and to make our own point of view about this very basic question: are caffeine and coffee good for our health? In all modesty we see it as a good example of the difference between us and other websites about ephedrine: we provide reliable information because of our medical background, we mention all sources and references that allow you to check on your own, that’s why people trust us, that’s why some other sites copy our content without asking and mentioning it. On one hand it feels like a pain in the neck but on the other hand it’s good to see that your opinion is reaching a larger audience.
Legal changes for ephedrine in 2012
Regarding ephedrine and pseudoephedrine in the USA, 2012 has been rich of political debates between opponents and proponents of prescription laws, especially in states where meth abuse is high (Missouri, Tennessee, Indiana, Kentucky, Oklahoma, Illinois, Iowa, Michigan, etc…): does a prescription mandate really help to curb meth or is it just another burden on law abiding citizens? We have discussed and pushed our views with many journalists and local representatives these last months. As most doctors, we are convinced that a prescription law will not solve the meth problem in the USA but will cost time and money to honest people. Ironically, the persons that would earn money due to mandatory doctors’ visits are the ones that fight against these laws! In Europe also the situation has changed in 2012: it will be harder to buy ephedrine in European countries there since a new law will increase the Customs controls, but fortunately the EC legislation is targeting companies exporting big quantities more than individuals who purchase ephedrine for their conditions.
Ephedrine for sale over the counter again?
2012 has also been the year where we had the best news for ephedrine since the FDA ban in 2004: a first meth-resistant product has been launched by Highland Pharmaceuticals (Zephrex-D), followed by a second one by Acura Pharmaceuticals (Nexafed) and we just heard a few days ago that a third company has got a patent for a meth-deterring formulation process. This new generation of meth-proof products is very promising and could be a real game changer, potentially allowing people to buy ephedrine over the counter, in gas stations as years ago! Of course we will have a special interest for all political, economical, medical and social developments in 2013.
Where did you buy ephedrine in 2012?
As just said, finding ephedrine for sale in the US and in Europe became harder with all this political buzz. We had to remove several sellers from our recommendation and we did a major update a few months ago. Canada remains the best source for Kaizen Ephedrine HCL that we consider as the best ephedrine, with NutraCave (ex EphedrineOnline) as a first choice since EphedrineForSale is not shipping to the US anymore. Based on your feedback, purchasing ephedra from EphedraWarehouse is also a good choice and recently we have received positive opinions about FemNutrition for ECA stack orders for the USA.
Ephedrine for weight loss
Our last words will be for people who came to our site for one reason: how to lose weight with ephedrine. This is the tricky part of our information role: the never-ending controversy about the FDA ban has evolved in a grey zone when it comes to the fat burning properties of ephedrine. Today everyone knows that the main reason of the ban was drug control, not safety issues, every health professional knows that ephedrine is safe for weight loss when taken under certain precautions, but still ephedrine can only be purchased legally as bronchodilator and not as diet pill. Due to this controversy we have decided to stop sending our newsletter about ephedrine and fat burn. We prefer to have one-to-one contacts per email and we try to support people already aware of our recommendation for the best possible weight loss plan: ephedrine plus caffeine (EC stack) plus smart diet plus cardio training. Congratulations to all of you who decided to try and did not regret it 😉 If you didn’t start your weight loss plan in 2012 but you added it to your 2013 resolutions, you know where to buy ephedrine from the best sites.
We wish you Health, Peace, Love and Happiness in 2013!
