Woman Almost Dies after Taking Daily Supplements?

Woman Almost Dies after Taking Daily Supplements?

One Texas woman says she almost died after taking a daily supplement. Emily’s friend suggested a supplement to help her acne-prone skin. She took the supplement for 10 months before experiencing stomach pain, fatigue, and the yellowing of her eyes. After being admitted to the hospital she was diagnosed with acute liver failure. Was the supplement to blame? Gastroenterologist Dr. Su Sacher weighs in.

    Still amazed with the immediate healing i received from Dr.ALUDA on YouTube, now i’m free from my HPV and Herpes Virus permanently through his herbal medication.

    Just boil veg and eat some fruit and walk a bit outside. chances are you won’t need any tablets. We need to stop pushing supplements so easy when we don’t even eat right! It’s frustrating af!!!!

  3. The MESSenger on April 14, 2022 at 5:58 pm

    I simply typed “probiotic supplements” and this is what I found at the top of the list 😩

  4. Mia Treadwell on April 14, 2022 at 5:59 pm

    Disappointing…..waste of my time

  5. G D. on April 14, 2022 at 5:59 pm

    Annoying AF. They don’t even tell us. Like wtf. What’s the point. Why do they keep telling us about her going to the top of the list. This is…I just can’t…

  6. FarmHaus Candle Co. on April 14, 2022 at 5:59 pm

    I can understand not saying what the brand was but she couldn’t say what the possible ingredient was that harmed her? Ok then why go on tv with a scary story like this cuz it’s not helping anyone. All your gonna have is people scared to take their multivitamin. No wonder so many people have anxiety. If your gonna tell a story just tell the whole thing so we can make it make sense.🙄

  7. Péter Balogh on April 14, 2022 at 6:01 pm

    What was that supplement????????????? You just don’t say the only thing what matters!!!!!!!!

  8. Vicki S on April 14, 2022 at 6:01 pm

    There are ALOT of supplements that have bad fillers, these fillers are dangerous but let’s blame "supplements "….🙄

  9. Turbo Jones on April 14, 2022 at 6:01 pm

    They don’t know what it was, so it was her supplements. American science.

  10. Sharon Pretty on April 14, 2022 at 6:01 pm

    For those that believe in natural supplements,Dr Aluda is a good herbalist his herbal medicine eliminate my HPV.reach him on YouTube.

  11. Mixy Tampa on April 14, 2022 at 6:02 pm

    Its very true I went on Herbalife and lost my gallbladder and that was crazy ….

  12. Kyra on April 14, 2022 at 6:03 pm

    They don’t even say what supplement it is? It could be something a lot of us are taking right now… I guess we’ll all die then

  13. Amanda Semroska on April 14, 2022 at 6:03 pm

    My doctor wont give me any answers she simply says supplements arent studied so how do i know? I would prefer natural treatment

  14. buzzardbeatniks on April 14, 2022 at 6:05 pm

    Useless video, but for those wondering what suppliment they’re talking about – Probably Retin A.
    Too much Vitamin A can cause liver damage.

  15. KnewTherapy on April 14, 2022 at 6:06 pm

    The supplement was…heroin

  16. mmerc1 on April 14, 2022 at 6:08 pm

    Thanks for not sharing the name of the supplement she used. Great help you guys are, lol. If this is true what’s sharing the name matter?

  17. mona on April 14, 2022 at 6:08 pm


  18. B & J H on April 14, 2022 at 6:09 pm

    She doesn’t know what the supplement or it’s ingredients are?

  19. Rachel on April 14, 2022 at 6:09 pm

    Bet it was accutane

  20. paul Gonzales on April 14, 2022 at 6:10 pm

    The title leads us to believe that she almost died because of the supplements but it hasn’t been proven. The Drs show is pro pharmaceuticals and poo poos natural supplements.

  21. Don Mulder on April 14, 2022 at 6:11 pm

    astroturf on behalf of big pharma?

  22. baba on April 14, 2022 at 6:12 pm

    Most of the times patients don’t disclose that they are taking a supplement because they do not make the connection. In this case it seems that she was probably taking several supplements or one that included a mixture of several supplements. Thas why the doctors cannot mention which one. There are so many side effects to every supplemnt or herb, if taken too much of it or if it interacts with medications or even other supplements. For example Biotin supplementation skews the labs results of troponin, which is a lab we run when a patient comes to the doctor with chest pain. You could be having a heart attack but the biotin in your system makes it appear as if you were not. Doctors treat heart attacks based on these lab values, but if the values aappear normal (when they are not) patients cannot receive the proper interventions.

    White girl got “lucky”
    I rather be blessed than lucky.

  24. Jeffrey B on April 14, 2022 at 6:16 pm

    Travis: On today’s show a woman takes supplements that nearly cost her her life.
    Me: Oh wow! Can you tell us the name of the supplement so we won’t potentially make the same mistake?
    Travis: Don’t be ridiculous

    (For the record I was searching Relief Factor and this video came up in the results)

  25. AppleAmor on April 14, 2022 at 6:18 pm

    Vitamin A toxicity. She probably used now foods 25000 iu vitamin A. It’s not water soluble and you can take too much. She should’ve noticed her hair falling out first

  26. Harmony 2019 on April 14, 2022 at 6:18 pm

    Ladies and Gentlemen equally.
    Retin-A, Retinol and the likes (often prescribed for acne) are deadly for the liver, they all are Vitamin A extracts in a very excessive amount. Be vigilant, do your research.

  27. Kenneth Pollard on April 14, 2022 at 6:20 pm

    How did she get a liver transplant so fast? Many folks be on list for years?

  28. AKBuilder762 on April 14, 2022 at 6:20 pm

    " lets make a video everyone will click on but make it void of any information "
    Video is useless.

  29. BIG BRUH 864 on April 14, 2022 at 6:21 pm

    All so called doctors PRACTICE medicine that’s all it is, were guinea pigs for there WEIRD SCIENCE!!!

  30. ༺Joe's-girl༻ on April 14, 2022 at 6:24 pm

    My 15-year-old daughter takes patiothetic acid which is miracle working on acne. It’d be nice if they told what supplement this woman took. Now I’m scared

  31. Aibhlin Keala on April 14, 2022 at 6:24 pm

    No doubt, how did she rise to the top so quickly. I have a family member whos been in need of transplant for over a year .

  32. julio sandoval on April 14, 2022 at 6:24 pm

    That’s acne no blood circulation or high blood

  33. William Burton on April 14, 2022 at 6:24 pm


  34. R.P. on April 14, 2022 at 6:24 pm

    🤔 how long was she taking this supplement?

  35. Brit Brat on April 14, 2022 at 6:31 pm

    They’re not gonna tell us what the supplement was? Could save lives.

  36. Juliet Aliden on April 14, 2022 at 6:32 pm

    What kind of supplement did you take.

  37. Gloria Wilson on April 14, 2022 at 6:34 pm

    How the hell did she get a liver that fast??🤔🤔🤔 Happy that she survived, but others need to know HOW SHE TO WENT TO THE TOP OF THR LIVER DONOR LIST.

  38. kill the population on April 14, 2022 at 6:35 pm

    so doctors what was the supplement iam taking something for acme like her if i get liver failure because u wont say what she is taking i will sue everyone for not alerting the public to the product she is taking do ur job what is it!!!

  39. Dimension extensions on April 14, 2022 at 6:36 pm

    vitamins and alchohol dont mix good. it dehydrates u and hurts the liver

  40. Avatar007 on April 14, 2022 at 6:36 pm

    Wait. She herself said DRUG induced, not a supplement!

  41. Ashley Collins on April 14, 2022 at 6:39 pm

    I have so many questions. What’s the medical hx of the pt? Does she drink? Does she eat oily and /or fatty foods? Was she using the "supplements" as recommended? What other medications was she taking along with the supplements? Also, what’s the name of this mysterious supplement?This information helps absolutely no one. I call bs.

  42. Ange Los on April 14, 2022 at 6:40 pm

    Her liver is cute and a failure at the same time? 🤔

  43. MM mburke on April 14, 2022 at 6:40 pm

    She received a new liver within 8 hours? How does that happen?

  44. Charlena Marcuccio on April 14, 2022 at 6:41 pm

    my guess is it was really high dose vitamin A (useful for skin conditions, acutane is derived from Vit A, retinol is essentially vitamin A…) and high doses of it cause liver failure and horrible pregnancy outcomes past 10 000 iu (or mg… whatever the unit is).

  45. FFF Trucking on April 14, 2022 at 6:43 pm

    This lady is SMILING TO MUCH, I don’t believe non of this……Lets call it FAKE NEWS

  46. horseman528 on April 14, 2022 at 6:44 pm


  47. digitalgr8ness on April 14, 2022 at 6:50 pm

    They don’t tell you what the so-called "supplement" in question was, but she says the doctors determined it was drug induced. So what was this daily supplement? It surely wasn’t a natural vitamin but some form of synthetic drug. This is a misleading and deceptive video. Big Pharma hates anything natural because it’s cheap and they can’t patent it. Don’t buy into the scare tactics!!

  48. Cynthia Darlenne Cahuantzi on April 14, 2022 at 6:51 pm

    The Supplement she took was AlaniNu Balance Pills

  49. Mary on April 14, 2022 at 6:52 pm

    What supplements??

  50. catherine valli on April 14, 2022 at 6:52 pm

    they can’t identify the ingredient that caused the problem, make no mention of what supplement she took, so what is the point of this? i never watch THE DOCTORS, they are basically a bunch of guys on camera in a circle jerk. no real info, ever.
