Because of our low, mail order, Internet prices and the amazing demand for our "wholistic" consulting and revolutionary products, we 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 (Ingredients, Usage, FAQ, etc.). Thank you in advance.


Pet Food Recalls

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.

Do You Have a Sugar Addiction?

It has been postulated that if sugar came on the market today as a new food additive, it would be banned because of its unhealthy ramifications. We posted the following article link on our Facebook page and it has attracted a lot of “Likes”:

The Sugar Conspiracy

To save those who do not want to read the long article, here are some highlights:

  1. Nutritionist, John Yudkin, author of the book “Pure, White, and Deadly” (1972), conducted laboratory experiments (both animal and human) that showed sugar is processed in the liver, where it turns to fat, before entering the bloodstream.

  2. John Yudkin noted that sugar was a pure carbohydrate, with just the fiber and “nutrition” stripped out and the sweetness left in.

  3. John Yudkin also noted that sugar has only been part of Western diet for some 300 years, which is relatively short in evolutionary terms. (We wholistically believe our bodies have not yet adapted to this new “drug.”)

  4. “In 1980, the US government issued its first Dietary Guidelines: cut back on saturated fats and cholesterol. Americans replaced steak and sausages with pasta and rice, butter with margarine and vegetable oils, eggs with muesli, and milk with low-fat milk or orange juice. But instead of becoming healthier, we grew fatter and sicker.”

  5. In spite of very little supporting scientific evidence, saturated fats and cholesterol were publicized then as the villain, while sugar remained untouched despite mounting evidence to the contrary.

  6. Recently, Robert Ludwig (pediatric endocrinologist who specializes in childhood obesity) in his talk entitled: Sugar: The Bitter Truth (2009) stated, fructose is a “poison” responsible for America’s obesity epidemic.

  7. Only recently has the U.S. government made a dramatic shift in its dietary guidelines to limit sugar intake.

Do you think the food manufacturers knew about the unhealthy ramifications and addictive nature of sugar 30-40 years ago? We find it amazing how much ego, politics and money plays a part in what is determined to be good and bad in our diets for our health. Remember this infamous advertising line: "There is no scientific evidence that cigarette smoking is hazardous to your heath." Consider how soy is still advertised as a healthy ingredient in our foods, in spite of the mounting evidence that it is a suspected endocrine disruptor (thyroid). Are GMO-foods really safe? It depends on if you listen to the food manufacturers' advertising, politicians and doctors paid by the pharmaceutical and chemical industry or independent food scientist, nutritionists and holistic practitioners using empirical data.

Is your pet overweight or obese, diabetic, arthritic or have chronic renal failure (CRF) or chronic kidney disease (CKD)? The above nutritional facts are why we wholistically feel  dry kibble, with its high carbohydrate and sugar content, is a species inappropriate diet for a carnivore (cat and dog). One of our holistic veterinarian resources calls dry kibble "diabetes in a bag" for cats. To read our wholistic pet food philosophy, go to our web page:

We do not rely on mainstream media and certainly not the food manufacturers to tell us what is healthy any more. We encourage each reader to do their own holistic research to determine what is good for them, their family and their pet’s diet.
