Colorado Floods

Optimum Choices is located on Plateau Parkway in Golden, Colorado on the south slope of North Table Mountain. Being on the side of a mountain, we are high enough to avoid any floods. Golden is bisected by Clear Creek and downtown could encounter flood damage although nothing is imminent. The photo below is of Clear Creek (from a couple of years ago) as it goes under the main street/bridge in downtown Golden. The metal fish sculpture in the center should be on dry pavement of the brick amphitheater which is all underwater from a previous Spring runoff. There is a pedestrian path on both sides of the creek that temporarily floods every Spring.

Because of the amazing demand for our "wholistic" consulting and revolutionary products, we have to limit every inquiry (e-mail and telephone) to 15 minutes in order to help all those in need. After the first 15 minutes we charge our normal consulting fee. Please make use of all the free resources available 24 hours/day, by clicking on the buttons in the left-hand menu of every product page. Thank you in advance.

Russell Louie at workOpen Letter from the Owner:

Many of our clients have experienced the following over the last 12 months:

  1. Late or missing orders

  2. Late or never answered e-mails and voicemails

  3. Lack of the superior customer service Optimum Choices
    is known for

As owner of Optimum Choices, I am sorry for this poor customer service. I apologize to everyone that has experienced any of the above. Please forgive me—it was not because we do not value our good returning clients. Due to an accidental fall in June, 2012, in which I sustained a concussion, the resultant Mild Traumatic Brain Injury (MTBI) temporarily left me with brain impairment. I have been unable to function as efficiently as before. My recovery has required treatment from more than 4 doctors (M.D., O.D., D.C., Ph.D.) and 4 therapists (occupational, cognitive, vision and bodywork therapy). Ironically, the very last e-newsletter I wrote in October 2012 (It Takes 9 Months/Weeks) discussed how long it takes certain parts of the body to heal. Based on my personal experience with the MTBI, I added another body part, the Brain. It can take the brain 6 months to 5 years to heal from even a mild fall/accident and subsequent concussion.

Because of the MTBI I experience:

  1. Slow thought and information processing

  2. Easily distracted

  3. Losing things (orders, messages, slips of paper)

  4. Inability to prioritize appropriately

  5. Extreme fatigue in the middle of the day requiring daily naps

  6. Emotional overload leading to depression

In addition to the above medical treatment, I also take the following nutritional support:

  1. Prescribed amino acid supplements—NeuroReplete , N-Acetyl-1-Cysteine, Kavinace,
    Glycine and Amino Acid Base

  2. BioSuperfood-f3—high in antioxidants for the brain

  3. Moxxor—high in Omega oils for the brain

  4. NingXia Red—Chinese wolfberry juice

  5. ALPHA-G—polysaccharide peptide product

  6. Gingko biloba herb

Even though I cannot confidently say I am 50% recovered, the good news is that I am making slow progress. All my doctors and therapists say that any progress is good news. The other good news is that I hired an Administrative Assistant to help me run Optimum Choices during this very difficult time. Michelle is now helping me process the high volume of orders from the incredible demand for our “wholistic” products. She is starting to focus on learning how our advanced nutritional products work so she can also help me answer all the support questions of why our whole food products work so well when doctors and vets have run out of options. See our Facebook page, Freedom From Illness, for testimonials.

Scientific Proof


Does Alpha-G Kill Cancer Cells?
by Russell Louie

This spring we experienced an abundance of ALPHA-G orders. ALPHA-G is another one of our wonderful whole food products providing amazing results. ALPHA-G is generically known as a PSP (polysaccharideALPHA-G peptide or polysaccharidepeptide) product. We feel our cat, Iris, may be alive today 2.5 years past her terminal diagnosis (less than one month to live) of advanced intestinal lymphoma cancer (or severe IBD) because of ALPHA-G and other holistic means. Customers reported reading in other practitioners' newsletters that, "...alpha-g kills cancer cells..."  Although I have not seen this direct reference, I want to set the record straight by saying ours is a formal commercial product named ALPHA-G, while the "alpha-g" mentioned in these other newsletters may be generically referring to molecular particles based on Japanese cancer research. Let me explain the difference.

Most PSP products are broken down into smaller particles (molecules) such as beta-glycans extracted or mushroomsconcentrated from reishi mushrooms and yeast or alpha-glycans from rice grains from Thailand. Japanese research shows that the “…polysaccharide beta-1,3-D-glucan in reishi boosts the immune system by raising the amount of macrophages T-cells…” (see www.naturalnews.com/021498_reishi_mushrooms.html#ixzz2cCGQWyNA). Other research shows the “…glucan in reishi mushrooms help immune cells bind to tumor cells. Here are the references to some of this research:

  • The effect of polysaccharide peptide and taxol on human solid tumor tissue in vitro, Danyang Dou, etal., Journal of Medicinal Plants Research Vol. 5(17), pp. 4267-4273, 9 September, 2011.

  • Iresearch scientistmmunoregulatory and anti-tumor effects of polysaccharopeptide and Astragalus polysaccharides on tumor-bearing mice, Li J, etal., Immunopharmacol Immunotoxicol, 30(4):771-82, 2008. 

  • Immune System Enhancer Helps Fight Cancer Natural Killer Cell Enhancement And Anti-Cancer Effects Of Proprietary Japanese Mushroom Extract, Active Hexose Correlated Compound (AHCC®), Fred Pescatore, MD, MPH, originally printed in Whole Foods Magazine, May, 2001. 

  • Effects of polysaccharide peptide (PSP) from Coriolus versicolor on the pharmacokinetics of cyclophosphamide in the rat and cytotoxicity in HepG2 cells, Siu-Lung Chan, John H.K. Yeung, Food and Chemical Toxicology,  44: 689694, 2006.

Instead of containing these larger beta-glycan particles (molecules) from mushrooms or yeast, our ALPHA-G is hydrolyzed into smaller alpha-glycan particles (thus the product name ALPHA-G) from a combination of specifically selected strains of rice harvested from organic U.S. sources. We feel these smaller alpha-glycan particles may be more readily absorbed into the cell walls for better results. In addition to hydrolyzation (a water and pressure process), ALPHA-G undergoes additional proprietary processes that may help to improve assimilation. No other PSP product undergoes these additional proprietary processes. The doctor that formulated ALPHA-G has seen better clinical results with this new formulation which may be due to these additional proprietary processes. Our observations and the results of our clients seem to demonstrate that these smaller alpha-glycan particles and additional proprietary processes may produce superior results than many other PSP products. Here are some personal examples why we believe this to be true.

When Margaret was taking a 3-antibiotic protocol to get rid of a nasty parasite she needed something to drugsprotect her liver and soothe her digestive tract to be able to tolerate these strong drugs. Our chiropractor initially determined she needed up to 9 scoops/day of another PSP product we were selling at that time to do this. When we were introduced to ALPHA-G later she found it so potent that she needed less than one teaspoon/day from the new ALPHA-G to produce the same benefits.

When our 9 year old cat, Iris, came down with advanced intestinal lymphoma cancer (or severe IBD) in Iris in her grassDecember, 2010, we were given the following options by our holistic vet:

  1. Steroids to reduce the symptoms.

  2. Chemotherapy to buy us more time.

  3. Hospice care.

  4. Euthanasia.

We chose none of them and slowly eliminated other isolated supplement options, purported to be good for cancer, that all proved to be too strong for Iris to tolerate. The two products that proved to be "Queen" Iristolerable (for a sensitive cat) and effective to help Iris balance her body were our bio-algae concentrates and ALPHA-G. Iris is still alive 2.5 years later. She recently stopped eating again and was diagnosed with pancreatitis, enlarged spleen, bleeding in the stomach and (suspicious) abnormal cells in her stomach fluids. But none of the tests confirmed cancerous cells. I feel this may be due (not scientific proof) to the nutritive properties of our bio-algae concentrates and ALPHA-G products as shown by the above research. These whole superfood products can possibly balance the body at the cellular DNA level so that reproduction of cancer cells is just not happening. We certainly are not claiming our ALPHA-G product is a cancer cure. We will let the reader investigate the above research and come to their own conclusions. For more ALPHA-G stories, see the testimonials on our PSP (ALPHA-G) web page: www.OptimumChoices.com/PSP_ALPHA-G.htm

If you are one of our clients (people or pet) that has experienced amazing results from our ALPHA-G, please send us your testimonial to Russell@OptimumChoices.com or post it on our Facebook page: Freedom From Illness. Help others understand that one does not need targeted isolated supplements to get rid of the symptoms. Instead one can balance the body from within using super nutrition. A balanced body has no need for symptoms. Whole superfood products, like BioPreparation, BioSuperfood and ALPHA-G, may also help produce amazing results without any side effects from high doses of just the active ingredients unlike drugs and isolated supplements. Your body may be more balanced, healthier and you can save money over a whole shoebox of isolated supplements. By "wholistically" feeding your body/brain whole superfoods instead of supplementing the symptoms you can possibly awaken the natural ability of your body to heal instead of relying on the product to do the "healing" work. Now that is Freedom From Illness.
