The Colorado Alliance of Animal Owners Rights was established in 2006 to
protect your right to use complementary and alternative health care methods

with your animal, this impacts you: nutritionists, chiropractors, massage practitioners,
physical therapists, equine dentists, acupressurists, energy medicine
practitioners, Healing Touch for Animals® Practitioners, Reiki
practitioners, TTouch practitioners, aromatherapists, homeopaths, trainers,
animal communicators and farriers.
CAAOR is currently working on
legislation to allow animal practitioners to practice without requiring direct
veterinary supervision. HB-1296 "Animal Owner Choice of Care" was just passed in
the Colorado State House of Representatives on Feb. 28. Support the Animal

This free teleconference call will be
focused on the revolutionary animal product, BioPreparation, featuring guest
Russell Louie of Optimum Choices, LLC. Russell is the premier distributor of
BioPreparation in the world and has the most experience using
BioSuperfood/BioPreparation on dogs and cats in the country. His topic this
evening will be "STOP Supplementing Symptoms."
Did you know?
Glucosamine supplements may impair
insulin secretion. Patients with diabetes should be cautious since
glucosamine may affect insulin sensitivity or glucose tolerance.
Glucosamine supplements pass
through your digestive tract and into your bloodstream where yeast live,
then they feed on the glucosamine. Thus, glucosamine increases yeast
overgrowth and a flare-up of Candida symptoms
Did you know that taking digestive
enzymes supplements is not entirely holistic and long-term use will
create a “lazy” pancreas?
Russell will explain the disadvantages
of taking supplements and the advantages of using whole food products
instead. He will explain how BioPreparation has holistically helped animals
with mast cell tumors, auto-immune disease, arthritis, chronic renal failure
(CRF) or chronic kidney disease in cats, hypo- and hyper-thyroid conditions,
diabetes and inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and much more. Even if your
animal is still young and free of any symptoms, if you want to extend the
life of your pet and avoid the expense of common degenerative diseases, you
need to attend.

Here are some personal testimonials. The names have been left off to protect
those with a fragile sense of self (and not still using ValorTM).
I was going traveling and was terrified at having to rent a car and find
my way around in a strange city. I used ValorTM
as soon as I got off the plane and was able to navigate my way around the
new city and drive a new rental car with ease (and didn’t get lost).
I was called in to the IRS for an audit. I knew I had done nothing wrong
and all my books were in order. I bathed myself in ValorTM
that morning and confronted the IRS auditing agent with ease and confidence.
My son was very close to his grandmother. After she died, I noticed he
became more withdrawn and his personality changed. He was less enthusiastic
about doing things. I gave him ValorTM
to put on his feet everyday and within one week he was back to normal.
I introduced a new dog into my multi-dog household. One of my old timers
did not adjust well and started peeing all around the house. I used ValorTM
and assured him that he was still "top dog" and he was not being replaced. I
explained the new dog needed a home and it would be very kindhearted if we
welcomed him into our home. The peeing stopped.
If it weren't for new diets, one-quarter of the health
section in bookstores would be empty. But why are there
so many new diets? Is it because none of the old diets
worked? Most people think vegetarianism (even if they
cannot do it) is the healthiest diet. But did you know
some people have developed poor health and immune system
problems eating a vegetarian diet? Soy is a hidden
ingredient found in many processed foods. Soy is
purported to be a healthy alternative food used to
extend fast food hamburgers, added to most supermarket
breads and found in many dry kibble pet foods, even the
premium brands. But research has shown soy is full of
toxins and the phytoestrogens in soy can depress the
thyroid gland, lower testosterone levels, cause
infertility and possibly promote breast cancer. With all
this conflicting evidence, what is one to believe?
The issue with all the above conflicting information is
that most people are still only looking at short-term
benefits and not holistically looking at long-term
ramifications. The holistic health movement is still in
its infancy even if it is a hot topic in the mainstream
media. Every time a study shows the benefits of an
isolated supplement or a single active ingredient in
fighting a disease, people rush out to buy it. While
this is good publicity in getting people to think more
about healthy choices it is more like allopathically
supplementing the symptoms. The definition of allopathy
is the practice of introducing a substance into the body
to produce effects different from those produced by the
disease under treatment. So, if the body is too hot and
a substance is introduced into the body to make it
colder, then allopathically one has "cured" the disease.
If the body has too little calcium and a product with
high calcium content is consumed, then one assumes the
calcium deficiency is resolved. The marketing hype on
soy milk touts its calcium content. But research shows
high levels of phytic acid in soy reduce assimilation of
calcium, magnesium, copper, iron and zinc. High phytate
diets have caused growth problems in children. From
modern day research we now understand that magnesium and
Vitamin D are essential for the assimilation of calcium
in the body. Any product or food that has calcium
benefits must increase the assimilation of calcium,
magnesium and Vitamin D synergistically. So, instead of
just allopathically looking at calcium content, one
needs to holistically look at the total absorption,
assimilation and bioavailability of calcium in order to
gauge its benefits from the product or food.
We feel the next level in holistic healthcare will come
about when people stop evaluating a product's (foods')
benefits by just look at the milligrams of each
ingredient on the label but by looking at the total
usefulness of the product or food to the whole body.
Nature did not mean for us to consume pure ascorbic acid
to get our daily requirements for Vitamin C. She meant
for us to eat whole citrus fruits, vegetables such as
broccoli or acerola cherries and rose hips for a whole
food source of Vitamin C. And this is being proven now
by studies showing that vitamin and antioxidant
supplements may actually increase mortality rather than
helping people live healthier, longer lives. Want to
learn more about other holistic myths and truths? See
our Book of the Month review below.
Soy is a healthy food and a good source of calcium.
Salt is bad for our bodies and contributes to high
blood pressure and heart disease.
All these myths and other holistic
questions are discussed in Optimum Choices' new e-Book, Optimum
nutrition for people. Nothing is sacred to the authors. If you have
a teenager that thinks being a vegetarian is cool, better read this e-Book
immediately before it is too late and your children develop thyroid
problems, have lower testosterone levels or develop infertility.
their 75+ years of holistic experience, the authors utilize their scientific
degrees to research little known facts about "holistic" choices being
advertised in the media. They compare our Standard American Diet (SAD diet)
with the traditional diet our ancestors ate. By looking at the nutrient
deficient foods we consume today, many answers are brought forth on why we
have a health crisis in America today.
But this e-Book is not just a sales attempt to sell you another holistic
supplement. As a matter of fact, Optimum Choices does not sell any isolated
supplements, herbs, concentrates or extracted products. They do cite sources
for healthy whole foods and superfoods as a way of obtaining optimum health.
If all their suggestions seem like too much trouble or cost too much money,
think about their final parting thought: "Those who cannot find the time and
money for health now, will be obliged to find the time and money later for
expensive healthcare." The choice is yours.
