In case you are wondering, we did not publish a May or
June e-newsletter. We were too busy handling the explosion (no pun intended) of
orders after Dr. Roland Thomas' interview on a national radio show (Coast
to Coast AM). After Dr Thomas talked about the benefits of using
bio-algae concentrates to help the body neutralize radiation exposure (based on
the results at Chernobyl), our sales have skyrocketed from the concerns of
radiation fallout from Japan. If you are concerned about the radiation still
being released from the Japanese nuclear reactors, go to:
Also during this allergy-time of year, many canine
clients are coming down with a particularly deadly disease called Immune Mediated Hemolytic
Anemia (IMHA). 50% of those diagnosed with IMHA die within the first two
weeks of diagnosis. Out of the remainder, there is up to an 80% fatality rate.
We currently have more than 2-3 times the amount of emergency overnight orders
to fill. These emergency orders take 2-3 times as long to fulfill and delay
normal orders. I am sure you would want this special attention too if your child
or beloved pet was dying of such a fatal disease. One of the suspected causes of
IMHA, flea & tick or heartworm treatment, is the subject of this month's

Freedom From Illness Webinar—Open
Questions & Answers
Has your supplement stopped
Are you stuck buying more and more
Do you wonder why some products
work for some people but not you?
Ever since the
Japanese nuclear reactors exploded, it has been hard to
reach Russell for support. One week afterwards, Dr.
Roland Thomas' was
interviewed on a national radio show (Coast
to Coast AM). He talked about
the benefits of using bio-algae concentrates to help the
radiation exposure based on the results at Chernobyl. Our sales
skyrocketed ever since from the concerns of radiation
fallout from Japan.
Because of the incredible demand for our holistic
products (they work like
no others) and this current event, Russell has been busy
filling orders with
very little time to handle your inquiries.
Attend this FREE webinar for
an open Question & Answer session. This is
your opportunity to ask Russell your holistic questions.
No individual recommendations or medical advice will be
given. Only general guidelines
will be discussed.
registering, you will receive an e-mail with the conference

American Naturopathic Medical Association (ANMA),
2011 ANMA Annual Convention & Educational Presentation
July 29-31, 2011
If you are interested in naturopathy or
just holistic healthcare in general, you
must take the opportunity to hear Dr. Roland Thomas (author of Awakening the Genius Within),
BioAge, in person.
Learn the most advanced concepts of true wholistic health from the
microalgae expert. Hear Dr. Thomas speak about:
What is the difference between stomach
food and brain food?
How can awakening the genius within
benefit my family and me?
How can I buy less supplements, save
money and simplify my life?
The wholistic principle, "let thy food
be thy fuel vs. medicine".
After this weekend you'll understand how the
“genius within” restores homeostasis and stimulate more efficient cellular
regeneration. You will know more about cellular nutrition then 99% of
physicians and naturopaths with advanced degree. With the proven facts and
many examples, you will have the knowledge and confidence to use for
yourself, or recommend to your clients and loved ones this "new"
age principle of "let thy micro food be thy medicine".
So far this year (2011), we have helped 37 dogs with
All last year (2010) we handled 33 clients and in 2009 we helped
clients. Unfortunately, it looks like we will break the 2009 record.
(2016 update: Optimum Choices has
handled over 1000 IMHA/AIHA clients since 2002. Because of our success
and wholistic expertise with anemia, we now handle 3-4 anemia clients
per week.) If
you do not know what IMHA is, I hope you never find out. If you want to
know what health condition is more deadly than
cancer, click IMHA. The
purpose of this article is not to put forth a possible cure for IMHA or
to give you some wholistic options (in addition to prescribed
medications) if your pet should contract IMHA/AIHA and if you want to be
proactive against, fleas, ticks (carriers of ehrlichiosis, babesiosis,
Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever and Lyme
Disease) and mosquitoes (carriers of heartworm and West Nile
Based on our informal holistic IMHA research study, 80-90% of IMHA/AIHA dogs
(whose pet parent responded to our study questions)
have had either a vaccination, heartworm medication and/or flea & tick
prior to contracting
IMHA. While there is no firm scientific correlation, I personally (wholistically)
feel there is a connection (as do holistic vets). Heartworm medication and flea & tick treatments are made from
pesticides, a neurotoxin. It makes wholistic sense that when the nervous system is compromised, the
brain could be imbalanced enough causing normal bodily functions to go awry. Go
EPA Evaluation of Pet Spot-on Products: Analysis and Plans for Reducing
for a warning from the EPA about flea and tick treatment for pets. If
you are a concerned pet parent and do not want to accept the potential side
effects of anemia or death, here are some wholistic suggestions.
In the wild, only animals that have a weak immune system get flea
infestations or succumb to infection by
mosquito-borne diseases. Normally, only the sick and elderly animals
die. This is the natural law of evolution. We believe feeding a species
appropriate diet to our domesticated pets will allow it to endure any
flea, tick or mosquito-borne illness just like animals in the wild. In
our "wholistic" opinion, dry kibble
grain-free kibble is not good enough for our pets) is the worst nutritional food to feed
our carnivorous pets. That is why their immune system is always
compromised. Dr. Robert Goldstein
agrees by saying, “Show me a dog or cat with fleas and I’ll show you an
animal on the wrong diet.”2
Fortunately, we live in Colorado and do not
have a flea, tick and mosquito problem. It is too dry and cold at night.
One holistic vet told us if night time temperatures drop below 57º
the development of
mosquito larvae (carriers of heartworm, West Nile Virus) is retarded.3
Because our dog, Mikki, is a small dog (Chihuahua mix) she is more
sensitive to drugs and chemicals. Our Colorado holistic vet does not
think it is necessary to give heartworm medication to Mikki. Instead, we
test her once a year. One holistic vet said if we really wanted to give
a preventative heartworm medication in Colorado, we only need to do it
in July or if our dog frequents areas of water where mosquitoes breed.
What if one does live in a humid climate where night time temperatures
do stay above 57 degrees at night?
First, feed a diet most appropriate for a
carnivore according to Nature. Dry
Kibble is a most nutrient deficient diet for our pets. It is like
feeding fruit or vegetable-flavored cookies to our children and then
wondering why they are obese and have health problems at a young age.
To augment a pet’s diet to help ward off those
pesky fleas, ticks and mosquitoes we would first suggest
ALL your pets glands and organs equally. Adding “Nature’s vitamin chest
in a capsule,” superfood
microalgae, to a pet’s food will holistically balance any
deficient gland and organ, including the immune system. In a real
problem area, one could augment the diet with specific holistic
products, such as
Earth Animal’s Natural Flea and Tick Prevention Program
formulated by Dr. Robert Goldstein.
For really problem areas, you might try topical solutions. Essential
oils can be a natural way to ward of those pesky insects. Aroma Dog has a whole line of
safe essential oil products called Flea Flicker,
Blaster, Tick Twister,
Kit Plus. Download our latest holistic resource list by clicking

If you have cats, you should know that cats
are especially sensitive to essential oils. NEVER use citrus
essential oils around cats. For more details on what essential oils are
appropriate for pets, see our web page
Safe Essential Oil Usage With
Animals. One unique solution we like is Collar
Companions & Daisy's Blends Essential Oils by Daisy Paws.
We have personally met the owner, Wendy England, and know she is
educated on the proper use of essential oils around cats. Wendy has
developed a removable collar companion than can be scented with a
special blend of Lavender and Lemon Eucalyptus oils to keep those
pesky mosquitoes, ticks, and insects away. What we like about this
wonderful invention is that it is simple and safe for all pets. One
simply adds the essential oils to the Collar Companion and clip it to
your dog's collar, harness or leash. When you are done walking or your
dog comes in from the outside, one can take the Collar Companion off
thereby avoiding essential oil exposure to any cats in the household. If
you are sensitive, you will not have to smell the aromas either. Thank
you, Wendy, for a very innovative essential oils product safe for all

In summary, there are many wholistic options
to giving your pet flea, tick and heartworm treatment that can be
hazardous and possibly fatal. Some of these conventional treatments are
literally made from powerful neurotoxin pesticides. Wholistic options
