Pet Food Recalls

The pet food recalls continue. FDA Alert: Certain Lots of Pet Food from Multiple Brands Recalled for Aflatoxin. From the FDA website: specific pet food products manufactured by Sunshine Mills under several brand names, may contain unsafe levels of aflatoxin. Aflatoxin is produced by the Aspergillus flavus mold, which can grow on corn and other grains. At high levels, aflatoxin can cause illness and death in pets. Symptoms may include sluggishness, loss of appetite, vomiting, jaundice (yellowish tint to the eyes or gums due to liver damage), and/or diarrhea. In severe cases, this toxicity can be fatal. In some cases, pets may suffer liver damage but not show any symptoms. Brands include, Family Pet Meaty Cuts®, Heartland Farms®, Champ®, Field Trial®, Good Dog, Hunter’s Special®, Old Glory®, Paws Happy Life®, Pet Expert, Principle, Retriever®, River Bend, Sportsman’s Pride®, Sprout®, Thrifty®, Top Runner® or Whiskers & Tails. For a complete list, with Lot Numbers, go to the FDA web page: Sunshine Mills, Inc. Expands Previously Announced Voluntary Recall of Certain Pet Food Products Due to Potentially Elevated Levels of Aflatoxin.

Want to avoid all these recalls? The best "wholistic" suggestion to prevent danger to your pet is -- STOP feeding dry kibble pet food. In our "wholistic" opinion, dry kibble pet food containing grains is the least nutritious form of food to feed a carnivore. It is nutritionally equivalent to feeding meat-flavored cookies to your child. 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. For the latest recalls, go to:

Nature's Vitamin Chest 103

If you have a high-performance or sports car, you know you must use high-octane fuel to make it run well. Even a runnerregular car needs a certain viscosity oil to run well in summer/winter. Nature designed our and our pet's bodies the same way: we need a minimum amount of nutrition to run well. In our previous newsletter, Nature's Vitamin Chest 101, we stated why we have branded our whole, superfood, bio-algae concentrates products (BioSuperfood for people and BioPreparation for pets) Nature's Vitamin Chest in a capsule. In a subsequent newsletter, Nature's Vitamin Chest 102, we explain why if you or your pet eat processed foods, white sugar, white flour, diet soda pop, use artificial sweeteners, GMO ingredients (wheat, corn and soy), meat from a regular grocery store (raised in CAFO's —  Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations) and farm-raised seafood, there is a good chance you are nutrient deficient. But with only a 15-25% absorption and utilization ratio, isolated supplements (such as a Vitamin C pill or fish oil capsule) are not a good holistic solution. On the other hand, absorption and utilization of nutrients from whole food products (like oranges, salmon and algae) is 90-95%. In these uncertain economic times, it literally pays to eliminate inefficient and ineffective supplements.

We suggest first looking at the multivitamins and general overall isolated supplements taken (or given to your pet) pillsfor no one specific symptom or reason. Once these have been evaluated, the second step is to evaluate the isolated supplements taken for specific symptoms, such as Product A for arthritis, Product D for digestive issues, Product I for the immune system, etc. From our holistic perspective, many of these symptoms occur because we eat (or give our pets) a poor nutritional diet. Finally, after your or your pet's body has normalized all its gland and organ functions and the WHOLE body come back into balance, it may be possible to reduce and even eliminate some medications. We do recommend before changing any medications, always consulting with your doctor/vet first. Here is a potential scenario that has worked for many of our clients (both people and pets).

With over 5,000 individual nutrients (including over 4,000 live enzymes) and 90-95% absorption and utilization of nutrients, BioSuperfood for people and BioPreparation for pets may help compensate for any nutrient deficiencies. But this does not happen overnight and may take months to years of replenishing and rebuilding to get back to normal. Once the body is back into balance, there is an absence of symptoms and the client feels really good, then they can begin experimenting (with their doctor's or vet's advice) with decreasing their isolated supplements and even drugs. Here is how this might work for you. Tell your doctor what you are taking and how long you have had an absence of symptoms. This should be at least 6 months. Ask your doctor if you or your pet can safely decrease your supplement or medication and by what increment. See how your or your pet's body responds.

If symptoms reappear and your body should relapse, consider taking more BioSuperfood or giving your pet more BioPreparation. Remember, one must take or give more 3 catssuper nutrition than is necessary to just keep the symptoms away. This additional super nutrition will be used by the body/brain to regenerate new cells and rebuild the glands and organs. For example, if 6 capsules/day is enough to keep the symptoms away but when you start to decrease your isolated supplements or drugs the symptoms come back, try increasing to 8 capsules/day for longer. Or if you have a chronic condition (say for 3-5 years or longer) and you try to decrease after only 6 months on our superfood products, increase the daily amount and hold for another 6-12 months before trying this experiment again. Balancing the body from chronic conditions can take a total rebuilding of gland and organ functions, using the body's timetable not ours. Uncover the holistic principles in our previous newsletter article, It Takes 9 Months/Weeks.

Some of our clients have been able to save money and simplify their life by eliminating inefficient and not needed isolated supplements and even drugs. How do we know this works? Here are some anecdotal examples:

Type I Diabetes: My insulin intake has measurably decreased over the past 2 months as I have been taking the BioSuperfood-f3. Throughout 2002 my daily insulin usage has averaged 42 units, including a basal rate of 10-15 units of Lantus and the rest short acting Novolog. Since starting use of BioSuperfood-f3, my average has dropped to 34.1 over the past 90 days, measuring on July 1. The average is 34.1 for the past 60 days, 34.3 for the past 30 days, 31.2 for the past 14 days, and 27.4 units for the past 7 days. I have been eating lighter the past 10 days, which shows up as decreased insulin requirements. I also notice more consistent energy and need for about 1 hour less sleep compared to before I began using BioSuperfood-f3 in March.

My cat, Sid, is 13 years old and for a long time was very over weight (23 pounds). He has been diabetic since 2002. Regulating his insulin has been very hard. Sometimes he would need as high as 7-units twice per day for a couple of weeks and then he could be maintained at 3-units twice per day for months. At times he would suddenly need as low as 1-unit twice a day for a week, then be off insulin for about three months before having to go back on it for a year. Last January, for no apparent reason (except maybe the bio-algae concentrates was working) he decided to loose weight and he weighs 18 pounds now. In June, 2005, we started giving Sid ¼-capsule bio-algae concentrates per day. He went off the insulin in August, 2005 for a month or so and then was back on it until May, 2006. Starting in May, 2006, he started taking Transfer Factor Classic in addition to bio-algae concentrates. Now, between the two products, he is a different cat. Sid is outside, jumping fences and happy. He blows me kisses with his eyes. He is quite the ladies' man. Before bio-algae concentrates he was a bed potato, hiding in the closet. As of 06/06/06, the vet took Sid off insulin for good (see vet report). His whole outlook on life is different after giving bio-algae concentrates!
(06/22/07 update: Sid has been insulin free for over one year now)

My daughter is prone to aura seizures, never big ones (Grand Mal). We could previously tell she had a seizure from ECGs (shows past seizures) scans, whereas MRIs never would show any previous signs. She has been taking your BioSuperfood-f3 to nutritionally help her maintain normal brain function. She recently went to a doctor in Bangkok (one of best hospital in the world) where they again, tested her. The doctor said she is free of seizures and there is no sign of past seizure activity now. We also give credit to the power of prayer and believed the Lord had a hand in this. Thank you for a wonderful product and helping my daughter become seizure free.

I have had a hypothyroid condition all my life that has gotten so bad with the change of life that the doctors want to put me on multiple hormone replacement therapies that will cost thousands and make me a slave to clinics and needles for most of my days. After the first day of BioSuperfood, I could not believe how different I felt! It was like a fog lifted from my mind and I could think again. I had energy like I can't remember having before. It seems like everything feels better and works better, even my eyesight. My family is laughing and having fun with me again, and that's the best part of all.”
— V.H. , Denver, CO

I discovered bio-algae concentrates (BAC) in a conference in the States 3 years ago, tried it to replace my medicine for hypo-thyroid, and in less than 3 weeks I was off my medicine.

I was feeling great using BAC (10 pills of BAC 2 and 10 of BAC 3) for only 4 months, before I dropped down to 5 pills of BAC 2 and 5 of BAC 3, and one year later I’m taking only 3 of each every day.

It took only 3 weeks to stop my medicine and since then (even going through a difficult divorce with heavy stress), I’ve been able to have full potential of energy, great looking skin, and feel just good. Before BAC I would have had a hard time to wake up and get up in the morning, I was ALWAYS feeling tired from morning to evening, and I was either too cold or too hot, now my thermo-regulation is well balanced.

The other amazing fact is that I was under a high dosage of medicine for thyroid, 100mg instead of the "normal" 50mg. When my first child was born, I decided to give her on her second winter one pill of BAC 2, one every other days, she NEVER got any cold at all, never got any flu when every others children were sick. And for myself I've NEVER gotten sick neither since I’m on BAC. Also I'm a vegan-vegetarian and it does influence the results a lots. I say that because my ex husband was not a vegetarian and was often coming home from work with cough, cold or flu, and he never took BAC consistently (just when he was sick), and the things is that me and the children could live in the same house and we were not getting sick!!

I love BAC and do believe it is the best product ever. In fact, doctor Churney from Colorado, at Eden Valley, invited me to a conference, and my life changed for good since then.

Still today I give BAC 2 to both of my children over the cold months of Switzerland. Would you believe me if I say that my children NEVER get runny nose, and mothers around me are always amazed. BAC does it!

Have a great day!
—Esther, Switzerland
