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.

Many people consider our whole superfood products too expensive. For example, the advanced formula BioSuperfood-f3, 180-capsule bottle, is $129. At 6 capsules/day that would be a one month's supply. Compared to a month's supply of a single-function, isolated supplement that only addresses one symptom (e.g., arthritis), one gland (e.g., thyroid), one organ (e.g., heart) or body system that would seem to be expensive. But our whole superfood products nourish and balance the WHOLE body, including ALL the glands (adrenals, thyroid, pancreas, pituitary, pineal, hypothalamus, etc.), organs (kidneys, liver, heart, lungs, brain, etc.) and body's systems (circulatory, lymphatic, immune, digestive, etc.). Let us look at an analogy.
Some people consider a $33,000 SUV (Sports
too expensive compared to a single-function,
4-door, sedan car at $22,000. If one only had a family of four people,
never needed to haul equipment or furniture, never went camping or on
long vacations, that would be a correct assessment.
But what if you provided car pool service for your two children and their friends to soccer practice or on band days, 2-3 days per week. Then a $30,000 passenger van might also be needed. Suppose your family liked to go camping in the backcountry or mountains or you lived in a snowy state like Colorado. Then you might also need a $40,000 4-wheel drive Jeep at times. To meet all your family’s needs would require three vehicles at a total cost of $92,000. Now that single $33,000 SUV looks a lot more economic than three vehicles for $92,000. Using this same multifunction reasoning, does $129/month for a single whole superfood product look expensive compared to $160/month (conservatively calculated) for a multivitamin, enzymes, antioxidants, anti-inflammatories, Omega oils and joint support supplements? It all depends on one’s needs, how many imbalances and nutritional deficiencies one needs to address.
Another point to consider is that isolated
supplements only address the symptoms. For example, pain from
inflammation only stays away as long as one takes the isolated
supplement. Some of our clients find the longer they take this isolated
supplement for arthritis the more they have to take to gain the same
benefits. Sometimes the product stops working and one needs to find
another that works in a different way or is more potent. This is just
supplementing the symptoms. Some of our clients that take BioSuperfood
for arthritis (and other ailments) find after a high beginning amount,
the body balances itself out and one can take less giving the same
benefits. We view this as ‘wholistically” balancing the body from
within. This is regenerating and rebuilding the body using superfoods
rather than just treating the symptoms. Consider these disadvantages of
A third point to consider is that research shows only 20-25% of an isolated supplements’ nutrients are absorbed and utilized by the body. While from a whole food product there is 90-95% absorption and utilization. So, if you did spend the average $160 for all the above mentioned isolated supplements, you would be flushing down the toilet $120 worth of benefits and only absorbing $40 worth ($160 X 25%) . While from our whole food product, BioSuperfood, one would absorb about $116 worth ($129 X 90%) of the total nutritional benefits. Which is better $40 or $116 worth of absorption and utilization?

The choice is up to you and your budget. Go cheap and just treat the symptoms to get minimal benefits from your pills. Or invest in your future wellness with whole superfood products, balance the WHOLE body and get more bang for your buck.
