How Long Before I Get Results? (Part 1)
by Russell Louie

In this fast-food, quick-fix society, everyone asks the question, how long before I get results and all my symptoms/disease goes away? Unfortunately, people have been previously disappointed by natural remedies and supplements not producing results. That is because most "holistic" supplements are only holistic in advertising but not really holistic in principle and therefore, bound to disappoint those who believed in their marketing. We are also conditioned by the medical establishment's drug-mentality, where one can take a prescribed drug for a very specific symptom or disease and get results in less than one week. Unfortunately, even though the symptoms might be gone in one week, the body is NOT healed from the original disease and the symptoms may only be suppressed  (although we do feel better).

Many people expect to see results from natural alternatives after just 30 days. Studies have shown that it generally takes at least 90 days for any permanent change in the body to take effect. This includes changing personal habits, quitting smoking, dieting to lose weight, results from natural supplements, etc. Although they look like supplement capsules and are taken like supplement pills, BioSuperfood and BioPreparation are NOT supplements, therefore one's previous experience and results with supplements cannot be used in evaluating BioSuperfood/BioPreparation. A paradigm shift must occur in order to be able to appreciate these revolutionary products. Drugs and almost all supplements consist of extracts and high concentrations of only the active ingredients. The advantages of this are quick results and elimination of symptoms. The disadvantages are potential side effects, a dependency on the product and never taking care of the original cause of the symptom or disease. On the other hand, whole food products (like BioSuperfood and BioPreparation) do not contain high therapeutic doses of any one ingredient but are a collection of many super nutrients that work in synergy with each other to activate the body's own natural ability to heal. To read about the difference between whole food products and supplements, go to our web page: Supplements and Vitamins vs. Whole Food Products. For a detailed example of the disadvantages and side effects of supplements, go to our Vitamin C Supplements vs. Whole Food Nutrition web page.

How long before one sees results depends on many factors including (but not limited to):

  1. Genetics
  2. Diet
  3. How long the body has been imbalanced (even before symptoms appeared)
  4. Frequency of dosages
  5. Regularity of dosages

Genetics—Our own cats are an example of the variability of results due to genetics. We adopted two cats from a rescue group, The Misha May Foundation, in August 2007, Cajun (center) and Iris (right). Cajun was 3 and Iris was 5 (or possibly older). Both were Simba-Cajun-Irisoverweight and had been fed poor quality commercial pet food in their foster homes. Iris' coat felt so awful that we didn't even want to pet her. We switched them to a premium canned food diet with BioPreparation and then raw food after a month. After only a couple of weeks, Cajun's coat was soft and silky, feeling wonderful to the touch from all the naturally occurring Omega-3, Omega-6, Omega-9, GLAs (Gamma-Linolenic Acids), ALAs (Alpha-Linolenic Acids), DGLA (Dihomogamma-Linolenic Acid), DHA (Docosahexaenoic acid) and more fatty acids in BioPreparation. With Iris, it took about a year before her coat really felt good. So, one could logically conclude from this that her age made the difference. However, we adopted a 10-month old kitten in November 2008, Simba (left), and it took a couple of months (not weeks like Cajun) before his coat started to feel soft and silky. So, he was slower to respond than the older Cajun. It seems genetic factors played more of a role in responding to the super nutrition in BioPreparation than age.

Genetics—One's genetic makeup is a factor (but not an overriding one) in what the body needs and how the body utilizes nutrients. For example, those whose ancestors lived near the oceans need more Omega oils in their diet because their ancestors regularly ate fish and seafood. "Water" dogs and dogs from Northern climates need more Omega oils from fish (not flaxseed oil, as carnivores do not have the enzyme to digest vegetable-sourced oils). How we metabolize nutrients is generally determined by our genetics.

Diet—Nature intended our bodies to get an ideal ratio of 1:1 (Omega 6: Omega 3) in our diets (some sources say 2:1 is OK). If one eats the Standard American Diet (SAD), then one is over saturated with Omega 6 oils (vegetable oils). This overabundance of Omega 6 in our modern day diet causes a shortage of Omega 3 oils as the body robs the Omega 3 oils from the foods we eat in order to process the excess Omega 6's. So, one might  expect someone short on Omega 3 oils to experience slower brain function, poorer immune system and loss of flexibility as one ages.

Diet—Another example of how diet can affect the results is illustrated by the fact our bodies need live enzymes to produce digestive enzymes and keep the pancreas healthy. If one does not eat any live foods in their Standard American Diet (SAD), with their co-enzymes and co-factors for manufacturing enzymes, one can expect to have decreased digestive function and a strained pancreas (perhaps even leading to diabetes) as one ages.

Body Imbalance—Most of us do not realize that a dysfunction/malfunction in the body starts long before symptoms appear. For example, one's kidney and liver function could start to decrease because one drinks diet soda (with artificial sweeteners). But there are no symptoms (except always being thirsty and eating more) for 10 years, so no worries. In addition to the ingestion of these chemical sweeteners, one uses personal care products (e.g., shampoo, hair conditioner, soaps, hand lotion) with DEA (Diethanolamine), propylene glycol and SLS (Sodium Lauryl Sulfate) in them. This further damages the endocrine system and decreases the immune function, but still no symptoms, so no worries. After 20 years of these habits, small fatty tumors (lipomas) start to form under the skin. Since they do not hurt or hinder anything, no worries. But after 30 years, these lipomas are very large and so unsightly that we now decide to take action to get them removed. Well, it took 30 years for the body's endocrine and immune systems to become imbalanced and dysfunctional enough to exhibit the symptoms (lipomas), so it is unrealistic to expect the body to reverse these symptoms in three months, no matter what treatment is chosen.

Frequency of Dosages—Most natural products work better if taken throughout the day, much like time-released formulas. For instance, better results will be obtained by taking one capsule every 2 hours of the waking day. For most people, this is too much of a bother, so they take three capsules in the morning and three capsules in the evening. Will the product still work? Probably, but one will not get maximum results.

Regularity of Dosages—Just like becoming good at playing an instrument or sport takes regular practice, becoming well must be practiced regularly too, not just when one feels like it or has symptoms. One customer, whose dog had over 10 lipomas, started to get results by switching from a dry kibble diet to a premium canned food diet. Even more results in the lipoma reduction was seen when BioPreparation was added. But the results plateaued without all the lipomas going away because she did not regularly give the dog, BioPreparation. She was determined to use holistic means (instead of surgery) to get rid of all the lipomas, so she made it a practice to give BioPreparation every day in the small frequent doses we suggested. All the lipomas finally disappeared.

After being disappointed by many other natural but not entirely holistic supplements, people ask us for a guarantee that our products will work. Well, we can not give them a guarantee unless they can guarantee they will take all the above into consideration for maximum results.

BioSuperfood for people and BioPreparation for pets are NOT SUPPLEMENTS to take just when one has symptoms. Even though they come in capsules so they appear to be supplements, BioSuperfood for people and BioPreparation for pets are whole food products. Wake up the body's natural ability to heal with whole food products and watch the symptoms naturally disappear.

BioPreparation/BioSuperfood are Nature's vitamin chest in a capsule (literally containing over 5,000 individual nutrients). Save money, buy fewer supplements and simplify your life. No doctor or vet exam is needed, no expensive diagnostic (lab) tests are done and no health insurance required. BioPreparation has even saved the lives of pets when a vet could not determine why the pet was dying or make an "official" diagnosis. Make a quantum leap in holistic health and experience a new paradigm in wellness!
