In July, 2018, the FDA began an investigation
into reports of canine dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) in pets eating
certain foods, many "grain-free" labeled, that contained a high proportion
of peas, lentils, other legume seeds (pulses), and/or potatoes in various
forms (whole, flour, protein, etc.) as main ingredients. We have heard that
some large pet food manufacturers and some traditional Western veterinarians
are recommending pet parents avoid "BEG" diets—Boutique companies,
Exotic ingredients or Grain-free diets. Before you panic, read
our truly holistic perspective in previous newsletters:
The pet food recalls continue. The best "wholistic" suggestion to prevent
danger to your pet is — STOP feeding dry kibble dog food. In our
"wholistic" opinion, dry kibble dog food is the least nutritious form of
food to feed a carnivore. Furthermore, a majority of all pet food recalls is
with dry food. Canned food, freeze-dried food and raw food have a much lower
percentage of recalls. For the latest recalls, go to:
2003, we had the SARS-associated
2009, came the influenza A (H1N1pdm09)
Now in 2020, we have the novel
Viruses have the ability to mutate and
evolve like all living things. That is why last year's flu vaccine
is not good this year. Bacteria also evolve, which is why we see
antibiotic-resistance strains. Some of our personal holistic immune
choices are the following:
Vitamin D— our osteopathic
physician recommended 5,000 IU of Vitamin D daily for good
immune system function because we live at high altitude (Denver)
and do not get outside much in the wintertime.
Elderberry syrup— from the
ancient Egyptians, to European folk medicine and Native American
culture, black elderberries have long been used to treat
infections and support good immune function.
Gan Mao Ling (Chinese patent
herbs)— can be used proactively or at first onset of cold or flu
symptoms. There are more Chinese patent formulas for specific
flu symptoms (such as throat or stomach symptoms).
Oscillococcinum (from BOIRON)—
we take this at the first sign of the flu. As a homeopathic
remedy, it contains no strong active ingredients, is non-drowsy
and has no known interactions with drugs or supplements. It also
will not mask symptoms that may develop from a more serious
condition. Safe for everyone ages 2 and up.
Kick-Ass Immune ACTIVATOR (from
WishGarden Herbs)— Margaret's doctor recommended this collection
of immune-boosting herbs for the body's immune, respiratory, and
lymphatic systems to support the body's natural resistance.
Essential oils— essential oils
from plants are too complex for viruses and bacteria to adapt
to. There are many, many essential oil
blends for specific types of flu and infections.
While we understand the need to
supplement the symptoms for an acute viral infection, we also
advocate nutritionally supporting the body's own natural ability to
heal BEFORE symptoms show up or blow up (viral outbreak). As an
analogy, while installing new granite counter tops in the kitchen
and rug in the living room may make the house look better, a better
investment would be first fixing the leaking pipe in the kitchen or
crack in the basement foundation that lets water in every time it
rains. Whole food nutrition, rather than the above isolated
supplements, is the
foundation of good "wholistic" health. In addition to the above
suggestions, we holistically recommend the
following for a good immune system foundation:
Avoid processed and pre-packaged foods
with white flour, white sugar, soy and
GMO ingredients that can deplete the nutrition needed
for a healthy immune system.
Avoid any soda pop (regular or diet).
Too much sugar and phosphoric acid imbalances the body's pH
making it too acidic, another immune compromising action.
foods. Factory-farmed foods from a mass market grocery store
are generally nutrient deficient. Margaret did a research study
comparing the mineral content of foods today to 70 years ago.
The depletion ranged from 10-76%. You can read the full results
at: "Lack of minerals
leads to lack of health."
So where can one get the immune
supporting nutrients missing in our modern diet? Nature's own
superfood, algae. Here is an impressive short list of
nutrients in our bio-algae concentrate products (BioSuperfood
for people andBioPreparation
for pets) that research shows may help support the body's response
to any viral, bacterial, fungal or parasitic infection:
Chlorophyll's energy to purify,
renew and anti-inflammatory properties may support
immune-enhancing and antiviral qualities.
Nucleic acids, found in RNA and
DNA, is responsible for directing cellular renewal, growth, and
repair. This may strengthen immunity by improving the activity
of T- and B-cells, which defend against viruses and other
invading microorganisms, and macrophages, which destroy cancer
and cellular debris in general.
Phycocyanin (protein pigment in
blue-green algae) may inhibit virus replication and intensify
the cellular and hormonal mechanism of the immune system,
reducing the presence of viral diseases. Chinese scientists
documented that phycocyanin stimulates hematopoesis (creation of
blood), emulating the hormone erythropoetin (EPO). EPO is
produced by healthy kidneys and regulates bone marrow stem cell
production of red blood cells. They claim phycocyanin regulated
white blood cell production, even when bone marrow stem cells
are damaged by toxic chemicals or radiation.
Abundant antioxidants, such as astaxanthin,
beta-carotene, alpha-carotene, lutein, lycopene, xeaxanthin,
quercitin, b-cryptoxanthin and many other pigments that offer
powerful immunity and toxin shield against continuous pollution,
toxins and stress.
Hoemattoccocus is the highest source
on earth of astaxanthin, a red pigment which is clinically
proven to have hundreds of times more antioxidant power than
vitamin E and vitamin C, and dozen of times more than that of
beta carotene as found in carrots.
Astaxanthin is 40 times more effective
as an antioxidant than beta-carotene, 500 to 1000 times more
effective in inhibiting lipid peroxidation as an antioxidant
than Vitamin E, has greater anti-inflammatory capability than
(gamma-linoleic acid), also found in early mother's milk, is
used as brain-building fats and to stimulate an infant's own
natural immune system.
While not scientific proof, are you going
to wait for conclusive scientific proof with FDA-approved
double-blind placebo studies before you take holistic preventative
action? The reason why this old knowledge (study results published
in 2003) is not more widespread is that pharmaceutical and
supplement companies cannot patent the rights to using blue-green
algae as a viral remedy without coming up with a proprietary method
for extracting or concentrating the active ingredients and proving
theirs is better than Nature using FDA-approved, double-blind
placebo studies. If I can take or give our family a whole superfood
product that does not have side effects, is produced under good
quality controls and is relatively inexpensive when compared to
drugs, I will take these holistic measures for a super immune
Here is a how Dr. Roland
Thomas' family benefited from
holistic preventative action. Dr. Thomas' daughter was living in a
college dormitory. Everyone on her floor got (or tested positive
for) the H1N1 virus except her. Of course, his daughter had been
taking the whole superfood product, BioSuperfood-f3, for many years
already. Is this scientific proof of viral prevention? You be the
judge as to what is good for balancing your body.
If you get at least one cold/flu each season, try something
different to provide a healthier outcome. For true "wholistic"
wellness, be holistically proactive (before
symptoms show up or blow up), rather than medically reactive (to
symptoms). Since you know your immune system gets depleted every
winter, start in the fall by doing some of the proactive holistic
measures above at a daily maintenance amount. At the first sign of a
cold or flu symptoms, ramp up what you are doing to a therapeutic
level, plus add several flu-targeted isolated supplements. Remember,
throughout the entire flu season to drink plenty of fluids, get
adequate rest, eat fresh fruits and vegetables and take BioSuperfood-f3
to give your body the fuel it needs for a super optimum immune
