Products I Can’t Live Without…


Here are some new products that will help enhance your IBD wellness, and may help to resolve problems which you may have, I know these products have helped me tremendously, and I can’t live without them as I use them every day!

About Diet

What about Diet?

I always recommend starting a Food Journal, and writing down everything you eat and drink, and its resultant effects within the next 48 hours of consumption: discomfort, pain, bloating, gas, bowel movements (number, frequency, consistency, blood, mucous), urgency – and see what patterns develop. That will be key to determining what foods you may intolerant of.

Additionally, I would strongly urge you to look into the SCD – Specific Carbohydrate Diet, or GAPS diet, or Paleo diet. Although these diets are pretty restrictive, because they eliminate all gluten, wheat, and dairy, countless people have been greatly helped by these diets. You can Google any of these diets and you’ll find out the specifics. By the way, you can always substitute Almond Milk for regular milk, and it’s delicious and much healthier for you!

Personally I like the Paleo diet because because it is an anti-inflammatory diet – mostly veggies, salads, fish, lots of GRASS-fed animal products like lamb, beef, bison, chicken, turkey, and eggs, healthy nuts, healthy fats like butter, but no grains at all. The whole basis of the diet is to concentrate on foods rich in healthy ratio of omega 3 to omega 6, which is ideally 1:1. Grain-fed animal products contain unhealthy ratio of 1:20 which causes and contributes to inflammation in the body, and therefore disease. Also grass-fed animal products contain important CLA, which you cannot get from any other source.

Methodology to Eating


This simple Methodology to Eating system, actually layers the basic principles of food combining (some of which were derived from Dr. William Hay’s premise he devised in the 1920’s ) with anti-inflammatory foods. This powerful two fold approach now yields an exponential beneficial effect. And it’s called:


The Anti-Inflammatory Food Combining Guide.


The Anti-Inflammatory Food Combining Guide is simple, easy to understand, and designed to teach you how reducing the inflammation in your body will make you feel healthier, and transforming your gut into a happier one, through making intelligent food choices, and explaining how to combine different foods of different pH levels, which require different digestive enzymes,  and are also different on the Alkalinity – to – Acidity scale.


Ever heard of the famous Latin proverb: “Like likes like”?


It and Dr. Hay’s premise could be used to actualize when you eat like foods ( of like pH and that are on the same Alkalinity – to – Acidity scale, and require the same digestive enzymes) – “like likes like” –  resulting in a happier you, a healthier you ( because you no longer have acid reflux or gastric distress, painful cramping of your tummy, excessive gas build-up, distention of your abdomen, and abnormal bowel movements), thus benefiting  you with much less inflammation throughout your body.


Why? Like likes like?


Because when you adhere to the principles of “like likes like”, your digestive system isn’t fighting foods that require vastly different digestive enzymes, and vastly different digestive environments.


Per Dr. Andrew Weil,  “…It is becoming increasingly clear that chronic inflammation is the root cause of many serious illnesses – including heart disease, many cancers, and Alzheimer’s disease. We all know inflammation on the surface of the body as local redness, heat, swelling and pain. It is the cornerstone of the body’s healing response, bringing more nourishment and more immune activity to a site of injury or infection. But when inflammation persists or serves no purpose, it damages the body and causes illness. Stress, lack of exercise, genetic predisposition, and exposure to toxins (like secondhand tobacco smoke) can all contribute to such chronic inflammation, but dietary choices play a big role as well. Learning how specific foods influence the inflammatory process is the best strategy for containing it and reducing long-term disease risks…”.


Why?  Anti-Inflammatory ?


Doctors and scientists have come to prove that in fact, inflammation is the cause of most disease ( even dis-ease) – whether we’re talking about auto-immune diseases in which your immune system has gone awry  and attacks itself.  Some more well known ( among many) of these are:


1) Ulcerative Colitis – wherein your immune system attacks your  colon


2) Crohn’s Disease – wherein your immune system attacks the tract from the mouth to the anus  at various points.


3) Celiac Disease – wherein your immune system attacks
the lining of the small intestine by attacking the villi of the intestine when you eat GLUTEN


4) Multiple Sclerosis – wherein your immune system
attacks the MYELIN ( the fatty material that wraps around your nerves, and without this protective myelin, your nerves become damaged)


5) Parkinson’s – wherein your immune system attacks
brain cells that produce dopamine, hence making it a
neurodegenerative brain disorder.


6) Lupus – wherein your immune system attacks any healthy tissue or organ, instead of bacteria and viruses, this creates inflammation.



Per the NIH, in their article on Auto-Immune Diseases and Inflammation, “… the classic sign of an autoimmune disease  is inflammation, which can cause redness, heat, pain and swelling. … but in most cases one important goal is to reduce inflammation.”

Other diseases that are not auto-immune, but are a direct result of excess inflammation:


Rheumatoid Arthritis
Heart Disease

What’s the Learning Curve?


I won’t lie to you; at first it does turn everything upside down.
BUT once you start implementing The Anti-Inflammatory Food Combining Guide, you’ll start feeling the beneficial effects within a few days.


Within a few days, you’ll be wondering where did the Acid Reflux go? Where did the stomach pains go?

Your friends will tell you ” hey, I noticed you no longer have gas…”


Is it Difficult?


No, it’s like starting an exercise program at a new gym, when you’ve never exercised a day in your life. It’s an adjustment for the first few days, but then when you start to see the results, it only pumps you up to continue your new routine.




You will be surprised how much sense it really makes as it’s based on scientific facts.

Within a few days, you’ll be happy to get rid of:

 – your lack of energy, and fatigue

 – your distended abdomen

 – your Acid Reflux

 – your stomach aches and cramps

 – your abnormal bowel movements


Personally I  believe that anyone who adopts The Anti-Inflammatory Food Combining Guide, will reap important health benefits, and overall less inflammation in your body.


Don’t be surprised if your doctor asks you why your numbers are so good? What are you doing that’s so different?

liquid vitamins and minerals

Adding much needed Liquid Vitamins and Liquid Minerals

When you have gut issues, such as in IBD, Crohn’s Disease, Ulcerative Colitis, and even IBS, your stomach and all its associated organs are already taxed enough; that’s why supplementation with liquid vitamins and liquid minerals is so important and essential because they are in the form that is already bio-available to your body – your stomach has nothing to break down since it’s already liquid.



” It seems logical that your body may absorb vitamins better in liquid rather than in pill form. Liquid vitamins are easy to take, even though they may leave a medicinal aftertaste in the mouth. Some people describe vitamins in pill form as “horse pills” because they are big and difficult to swallow, but this isn’t the only reason why you may want to take a liquid vitamin instead of a vitamin supplement in the form of a pill.
Your body absorbs liquid vitamins better than its pill counterparts do. In fact, the body absorbs approximately 98 percent of the vitamins and minerals contained in liquid form. However, the body only absorbs anywhere from 3 to 20 percent of the vitamins in a vitamin pill. Moreover, liquid vitamins bypass digestive processing and go directly into the bloodstream within minutes.
Nutrients keep the body strong and healthy, but antioxidants play a role in the prevention of age-related diseases. Choosing a liquid vitamin over vitamin pills may help your body absorb nutrients — especially important antioxidants — better. The body needs a constant supply of vitamin A, C and E, which are antioxidants that prevent the oxidation of cells. Cells oxidize when age, disease or illness strikes the body. You can prevent premature aging and some diseases by taking a daily multivitamin supplement.”

Gluten Relief

Gluten Relief – To Enable Occasional “Cheating”


Finally a painless way to “cheat” without suffering the consequences of pain, abdominal bloating, cramping, and diarrhea, it’s called Gluten Relief.

All of us, despite suffering from IBD, UC, Crohn’s Disease, and IBS – find it hard to stay on the regimen of no gluten and  no dairy.

I certainly used to love my Pizza, and have missed it terribly until just recently.

Since finding and using Gluten Relief, I’ve been able to “cheat” and indulge in a couple of slices of Pizza or other gluten foods without paying the heavy price with painful symptoms (you know what they are). After my “cheat”, I just take 4 capsules of the Gluten Relief, and I find it preempts all possible resulting symptoms.

Although I wouldn’t advocate “cheating” on a regular basis due to IBD producing an impaired gut, I think that there are quality of life issues that are just as important if we are to live in the social world we do.

So what’s a reasonable “cheating” schedule?

For me, it might be one meal every 3-4 weeks, this would enable me to socialize and partake on special occasions and still maintain the integrity of my gut.

Gluten Relief

Gluten digestion is challenging for many people. A significant portion of the population suffers from gluten intolerance, and some struggle with more severe conditions.

Celiac disease is a chronic digestive disorder characterized by an extreme sensitivity and allergic reaction to foods containing gluten, requiring individuals with the disease to follow a strict dieting regiment devoid of gluten-containing products.

Disorders such as ADD/ADHD and autism have also been linked to improper digestion of gluten and casein. Some say the cognitive and social behaviors associated with these disorders may be influenced by gluten and casein proteins.

Gluten is a starch-protein present in most grains and processed foods. Similarly, casein is a protein found in most dairy products which can be difficult to digest, causing discomfort.

Gluten and casein intolerances have been primarily treated through maintaining a Gluten-free and/or casein-free (GFCF) diet. However, trace amounts of these proteins can be found in many foods, making avoidance nearly impossible and allowing problems to persist. Foods with hidden gluten can be a serious problem for unsuspecting and discerning gluten-free dieters.

The underlying issue for people suffering from gluten and casein intolerance is their body’s inherent enzymes do not have the capacity to digest the offending substances. Incomplete digestion of these proteins damage the villi of the intestinal tract, causes inflammation and creates digestive discomfort. The villi of the small intestine is the site of most nutrient absorption and any damage to them can result in mal-absorption and nutrient deficiencies.

Scientists theorize that humans still have not caught up genetically with the introduction of grains to the diet that began nearly 10,000 years ago. Fortunately, advances in biotechnology are striving to bridge that gap.

Introducing Gluten Relief by AST Enzymes

Gluten Relief is specially formulated to support the digestion of gluten, casein and other offending proteins hidden in today’s modern foods.

Gluten Relief contains DPP-IV (dipeptidyl peptidase IV), an enzyme complex which specifically breaks down gluten and casein. Our formula includes five additional proteases, each with a specific and unique digesting activity that complements DPP-IV for complete protein degradation. Amylases, lactase and lipase complete Gluten Relief for overall digestive ease.

Gluten Relief for Full-Spectrum Protein Digestion

Undigested proteins can enter the bloodstream through a ‘leaky gut’ or permeable mucus lining of the small intestine. Research indicates that a leaky gut invariably leads to autoimmune issues of many kinds.

Gluten Relief by AST Enzymes is designed with full-protease power to help digest proteins which cause trouble in the gastro-intestinal tract and throughout the body. DPP-IV and Gluten Relief’s five additional proteases help to breakdown gluten and undigested proteins.

Proteins like gluten and casein are large, complex molecules with thousands of amino acid sequences folded and coiled within the molecule, much like a ball of yarn. Without sufficient and specific enzymes to break them down, amino acid bonds within these large proteins can remain inaccessible to enzymes, ultimately resulting in a protein that is only partially degraded. These smaller peptide strands are still long enough to cause problems with digestion: gas, bloating, occasional loose stools, constipation, fatigue, even severe gastro-intestinal inflammation.

Improper digestion of carbohydrates is often an issue associated with gluten intolerance. Gluten Relief addresses this issue with the inclusion of two types of amylase, as well as glucoamylase and cellulose for complete sugar and carbohydrate digestion.

Avoiding gluten and casein in food and everyday products can be difficult. Even while maintaining a GFCF lifestyle, many products can be hidden sources of these proteins and cause problems. Gluten Relief can be used in conjunction with a GFCF diet to alleviate the stress caused by hidden gluten and casein, allowing these proteins to be properly broken down and absorbed in their digested state.

Sources of Hidden Gluten You May Not Have Known

Blue cheese, bouillon cubes, caramel color or flavoring, commercial chocolate milk and drinks, curry powder, flavored instant tea or coffee, food colorings, gelatin starch, grain alcohol (such as beer, ale, rye, scotch, bourbon or grain vodka), gum base (such as in chewing gum), hydrolyzed vegetable protein, malt, marshmallows, modified food starch, monosodium glutamate, non-dairy creamers, packaged rice mixes, preservatives processed meats (such as sausages, hot dogs, or bologna), pudding, salad dressing, soy sauce, spices and spice mixtures, textured vegetable protein, vegetable starch and white or malt vinegar.

Enzyme Activity in Gluten Relief (Proprietary Blend):

Enzymes How it Works
Dipeptidyl Peptidase IV (DPP-IV)
SEB-Pro GR is a blend of five powerful proteases that function in a wide pH range, enhancing protein digestion. DPP-IV specifically works on the proline component of gliadin (found in gluten) and casein proteins, and helps regulate the inflammatory response to gluten peptides.
Amylase I, II & Glucoamylase Break down carbohydrates, more specifically starch, into smaller dextrins and sugars; produced naturally by humans, microorganisms and plants.
Cellulase Digests cellulose, a complex polysaccharide found in all plant material, including plant fiber.
Hemicellulase and Xylanase
(HemiSEB® cellulose)
Break down carbohydrates such as fiber and other plant polysaccharides such as hemicellulose, a major component of plant cell walls.
Alpha-Galactosidase Breaks down complex carbohydrates such as raffinose and stachyose commonly contained in legumes, cruciferous vegetables and grains.
Lactase Breaks down lactose, the difficult to digest disaccharide found in milk, into simple sugars for easier absorption.
Lipase Catalyzes the break-down of fats into essential fatty acids that are needed for healthy tissues and cells.

organic slippery elm bark powder

Slippery Elm Bark Powder (organic), the natural alternative to the Mesalamine products. This is the second step in the Alternative Protocol.

Why is it so important to find an ALTERNATIVE to the mesalamines? Mesalamines have potentially dangerous side effects, both short term and long term. Some common side effects can be: hair loss, decreased libido, and joint pains. Some people are allergic to them and get increased abdominal pain, bloating, gas, headaches, terrible watery diarrhea and even bleeding. Others can take the mesalamines for a while and then develop an intolerance to the mesalamines (symptoms noted in above) and mistakenly think their IBD has taken a turn for the worst and they’ve started a flare, when it was just an intolerance to the mesalamines. But the more dangerous long term effects are: kidney and liver damage, and possible kidney and liver failure. IMPORTANT: If you are on mesalamines, please make sure your doctor is doing regular blood work (every 4 months at least) and urine tests to specifically check that your liver and kidneys are not being affected by the mesalamines. These long term side effects could be life threatening.

Why Slippery Elm Bark Powder?

Because what Slippery Elm Bark Powder does is it coats and soothes your whole alimentary canal and digestive track which as a result of Ulcerative Colitis, IBS, IBD, Crohn’s Disease processes, has become inflammed and may be ulcerated; this is equivalent to putting salve on a burn to quiet it down and heal it – what I call the natural and healthy (no side effects) alternative to the medically prescribed mesalamine products. I recommend you take this inexpensive product 3 times a day in its powdered form ( they do make in a pill form, but it won’t have the same powerful coating effect) before meals.

Here’s how I take it:

3 times a day, before each meal, in 2 ounces of water, take 1 full teaspoon of the Organic Slippery Elm Bark Powder then add 2 drops of Honey to it (did you know Honey is a natural anti-microbial?), and mix it thoroughly by smashing the back of the spoon against the glass to smash the lumps into a kind of “gel” or “glue” (for lack of a better term), and then drink it immediately. Note, if you let it sit too long, it will get very thick so you may then need to add some water to it to make it drinkable. A note about the honey, please make sure it doesn’t have any high fructose corn syrup in it, and it is natural. It isn’t a must to add honey, however I like it because it adds a touch of sweetness, and I know of its anti-microbial properties.

Where do I buy my Slippery Elm Bark Powder (organic)?

I have done a thorough search for the best priced, best quality Organic Slippery Elm Bark Powder and

here is where you can get it, by the pound, approx. $37.50. per pound, and at 3 teaspoons a day, it will last you a very long time.

L-Glutamine Powder is one of the most important nutrients for your intestines. L-Glutamine is the primary energy source for your immune system. It has the ability to “repair Leaky Gut Syndrome” by maintaining the integrity of the bowels.

If you’re suffering from Diarrhea, mix 1 teaspoon of L-Glutamine powder in a little water, and drink it on an empty stomach, and that should stop your diarrhea pretty quickly.

But the reason to take L-Glutamine on a daily and continued basis is for: COLONIC REPAIR.


Although L-Glutamine is an amino acid that is frequently used as a sports and fitness supplement, it has been found to help modulate the immune system and protect the mucosal protective layer in the intestine. Studies have demonstrated that glutamine can help improve blood flow in inflamed segments of the colon in patients who have ulcerative colitis, although its benefits did not extend to the most seriously affected portion of the colon (Kruschewski M et al 1998). Glutamine is also able to reduce leakiness of the intestine, which may help to reduce symptoms of inflammatory bowel disease.

There have been numerous studies done on Glutamine supplementation and its beneficial effects. Please see Scientific/Medical Studies page.

L-Glutamine is an amino acid that is the main source of energy for the mucosal cells that line the intestines, and helps them heal.

How do I take L-Glutamine?

I take it daily, mixed in my breakfast shake.

Here’s the recipe for “Morning Glory Shake”:

  • 8 oz. of Almond Milk
  • 1 scoop of Pro-Optimal Whey Protein powder, chocolate flavored
  • 1 Tablespoon of Chia Seeds
  • 1 Tablespoon of Maca Root Powder
  • 1 scoop of L-Glutamine powder (approx. 15 grams)
  • 1 scoop of D-Ribose powder (approx. 5 grams)
  • 1 Tablespoon of Collagen Powder

Mix all the ingredients in a blender – on very low speed, as the amino acids in the Pro-Optimal Whey Protein are delicate and can easily be destroyed with heat (through high speed blenders which create heat), and enjoy. This “Morning Glory” shake is just delicious and so packed with all the nutrition you need, not just to start your day off right, but to help heal your immune system and colon.

Organic Chia Seeds

Organic Chia Seeds

Chia is familiar to most of us as a seed used for the novelty of the Chia Pet™, clay animals with sprouted Chia seeds covering their bodies. Little is known, however, of the seeds tremendous nutritional value and medicinal properties. For centuries, this tiny little seed was used as a staple food by the Indians of the southwest and Mexico. Known as the running food, its use as a high-energy endurance food has been recorded as far back as the ancient Aztecs. It was said the Aztec warriors subsisted on the Chia seed during the conquests. The Indians of the southwest would eat as little as a teaspoon full when going on a 24hr. forced march. Indians running from the Colorado River to the California coast to trade turquoise for seashells would only bring the Chia seed for their nourishment.

Chia Seeds Now Considered A Super Food

Because the question of what might be the optimum diet can, at times, be emotionally charged for many people, having had a significant emotional commitment in believing they know what’s best, here’s a “super” food that many agree on. It is known as the Chia Seed. Once valued so much that it was used as currency, this unique little seed has exceptional nutritive and structural benefits.

How Do Chia Seed Benefit Your Health?

Chia is an evidence-based registered variety of Salvia hispanica L. and is nutritionally superior to flax and soy. Chia is the richest non-marine whole food source of Omega-3 and dietary fiber currently known to man.

  • Promotes Cardiovascular Health:
    According to the American Heart Association, Omega-3 fatty acids can normalize blood pressure and bad cholesterol levels, while helping promote healthy heart and blood vessels.
  • Assists Joint Function & Mobility:
    With six times more calcium than milk, and with greater amounts of high-quality protein than the one found in soy, Chia also helps strengthen muscles and bones.
  • Improves Digestion & Natural Detoxification:
    Chia can absorb a whopping 12+ times its weight in water – flax seed only absorbs 6-8 times its weight. Chia´s insoluble fiber reduces digestive transit time and removes toxins as it passes through the digestive tract.
  • Supports Healthy Weight Loss:
    Chia´s high fiber content and its ability to reduce blood sugar levels after meals inhibits the appetite, thus making it the perfect food for healthy, effective weight loss. Thanks to its neutral flavor and color, Chia integrates seamlessly into any healthy recipe.

Chia Seeds Health Benefits Include:

  • Contain the highest plant source of Omega-3 on the planet!
  • FDA Approved.
  • Heart Health
  • Mental Health
  • Digestive Health
  • Great for Diabetics
  • Effective for Treating Hypoglycemia.
  • Chia Seeds contain more Antioxidants than blueberries.
  • Chia Seeds are a complete protein with all 9 amino-acids.
  • Chia Seeds are an excellent source of Calcium, Magnesium & Iron.
  • Chia Seeds are 100% natural and raw.
  • Most Chia Seeds are Kosher, NON-GMO & GLUTEN-FREE, look for Organic Chia Seeds from your supplier.

Chia Seeds are an effective aid to healthy weight loss. The fiber rich chia seeds and slowly metabolized carbs can help to curb the appetite and has been shown to help lose weight when included with a balanced and healthy diet.

Nutritional Benefits of Chia Gel:

If you try mixing a spoonful of Chia in a glass of water and leaving it for approximately 30 minutes or so, when you return, the glass will appear to contain not seeds or water, but an almost solid gelatin. This gel-forming reaction is due to the soluble fiber in the Chia. Researchers believe this same gel-forming phenomenon takes place in the stomach when food containing these gummy fibers, known as mucilages, are eaten. The gel that is formed in the stomach creates a physical barrier between carbohydrates and the digestive enzymes that break them down, thus slowing the conversion of carbohydrates into sugar.

In addition to the obvious benefits for diabetics, this slowing in the conversion of carbohydrates into sugar offers the ability for creating endurance. Carbohydrates are the fuel for energy in our bodies. Prolonging their conversion into sugar stabilizes metabolic changes, diminishing the surges of highs and lows creating a longer duration in their fueling effects.

One of the exceptional qualities of the Chia seed is its hydrophilic properties, having the ability to absorb more than 12 times its weight in water. Its ability to hold on to water offers the ability to prolong hydration. Fluids and electrolytes provide the environment that supports the life of all the body’s cells. Their concentration and composition are regulated to remain as constant as possible. With Chia seeds, you retain moisture; regulate more efficiently the body’s absorption of nutrients and body fluids. Because there is a greater efficiency in the utilization of body fluids, the electrolyte balance is maintained.

Example: Fluid and electrolyte imbalances occur when large amounts of fluids are lost resulting from vomiting, diarrhea, high fever, or more commonly from sweating. The loss of extracellular fluid occurs in these conditions. Intercellular fluid then shifts out of cells to compensate, causing abnormal distribution of electrolytes across cell membranes resulting in cellular malfunction. So, retaining and efficiently utilizing body fluids maintains the integrity of extracellular fluids, protecting intercellular fluid balance. The results of which ensure normal electrolyte dispersion across cell membranes (electrolyte balance), maintaining fluid balances, resulting in normal cellular function.


Hydrophilic Colloids for All Living Cells
Chia seeds are the definitive hydrophilic colloid for the 21-century diet. Hydrophilic colloids, (a watery, gelatinous, glue-like substance) form the underlying elements of all living cells. They possess the property of readily taking up and giving off the substances essential to cell life. The precipitation of the hydrophilic colloids causes cell death.

The foods we eat, in the raw state, consist largely of hydrophilic colloids. When cooked on the other hand, precipitates its colloidal integrity. This change in the colloidal state alters the hydration capacity of our foods to interfere with their ability to absorb digestive juices. If we were to eat a raw diet, we wouldn’t need to introduce the addition of any hydrophilic colloid to our diet. Uncooked foods contain sufficient hydrophilic colloid to keep gastric mucosa in the proper condition. But, even with raw foods, they must first be partially broken down by the digestive juices, beginning in the mouth and continuing through the upper tract, to allow the gelatinous reaction to take place. Because of this upper tract digestive process, those who suffer from slow digestion, gas formation, relaxed cardia and heartburn in which the burning is due to organic acids instead of an excess of the normal hydrochloric acid, which frequently accompanies chronic inflammation disease affecting such organs as the heart, lungs, gall bladder and appendix, are usually restricted from eating raw foods. A hydrophilic colloid incorporated with these foods may be used either in connection with the patient’s regular food or with whatever diet the physician feels is best suited for his patient. The patient with gastric atony or nervous indigestion who complains of heartburn and/or vomiting four to five hours after eating is often helped. There is a lessening of emptying time of the stomach and an improvement in gastric tone.

Chia Improves Digestion
Chia seed may be used in conjunction with almost any diet your doctor or nutritionist feels is necessary for your condition. The Chia’s hydrophilic colloidal properties aid the digestion of any foods contributing to the patients suffering as a result of a sour stomach. Even if you have sensitivity to certain foods, they may be tolerated with slight discomfort or none at all if a hydrophilic colloid is made a part of your diet. The positive effects on the digestion in the upper portion of the gastrointestinal tract often leads to puree their foods may find benefits from hydrophilic colloids which may lead to eliminating the necessity for pureeing. Even raw vegetables, green salads and fruits, which are largely restricted, may often be given to these patients with little or no discomfort after a short time.

There are several hydrophilic foods available that offer these natural benefits. Cactus juice, beet juice, agar, the edible seaweeds, and many proprietary preparations, which include the silica gels, mucilaginous substance of vegetables origin, are among colloids that prove effective. Each one of the above mentioned substances have one or more drawbacks. They are either too expensive, they may produce toxic side effects, are bad tasting, not readily available, have insufficient hydration capability or are indigestible.

Chia seed, a muscle and tissue builder and an energizer of endurance with extensive hydration properties, possesses none of the above disadvantages, and because if its physiochemical properties, supports effective treatment in immediate problems of digestion. Exactly why this should be true may be puzzling at first. However, if we consider the effect of unusual irritation upon the nerves of the gastrointestinal canal, it is reasonable they think that a less violent and more balanced digestion might quiet the activity of the otherwise hyperactive gut. Inasmuch as the same foods, which formerly produced irritation, may frequently be continued without harm when hydrophilic colloids are used. The relief to nerve irritation seems to offer a logical explanation.

The change, in the lower gastrointestinal tract, is due to the effect of the hydrophilic colloid and to a more complete digestion-taking place along the entire tract due to physiochemical alterations. Both factors are important, as there is undoubtedly a better assimilation of food that supports enhanced nutritional absorption while significantly extending necessary hydration as well as encouraging proper elimination.

Excellent Protein Source
As a source of protein, the Chia, after ingestion, is digested and absorbed very easily. This results in rapid transport to the tissue and utilization by the cells. This efficient assimilation makes the Chia very effective when rapid development of tissue takes place, primarily during growth periods of children and adolescents. Also, for the growth and regeneration of tissue during pregnancy and lactation, and this would also include regeneration of muscle tissue for conditioning, athletes, weight lifters, etc.

Essential Omega 3 Oil
Another unique quality of the Chia seed is its high oil content and the richest vegetables source for the essential omega-3 fatty acid. It has approximately three to ten times the oil concentrations of most grains and one and a half to two times the protein concentrations of other grains. These oils, unsaturated fatty acids, are the essential oils your body needs to help emulsify and absorb the fat soluble vitamins, A, D, E, & K. Chia seeds are rich in the unsaturated fatty acid, linoleic, which the body can not manufacture. When there are rich amounts of linoleic acid sufficiently supplied to the body through diet, linoleic and arachidonic acids can be synthesized from linoleic acid.

Unsaturated fatty acids are important for respiration of vital organs and make it easier for oxygen to be transported by the blood stream to all cells, tissues, and organs. They also help maintain resilience and lubrication of all cells and combine with protein and cholesterol to form living membranes that hold the body cells together.

Unsaturated fatty acids are essential for normal glandular activity, especially of the adrenal glands and the thyroid gland. They nourish the skin cells and are essential for healthy mucus membranes and nerves. The unsaturated fatty acids function in the body by cooperating with vitamin D in making calcium available to the tissues, assisting in the assimilation of phosphorus, and stimulating the conversion of carotene into vitamin A. Fatty acids are related to normal functioning of the reproductive system. Chia seeds contain beneficial long-chain triglycerides (LCT) in the right proportion to reduce cholesterol on arterial walls.

The Chia seed is also a rich source of calcium as it contains the important mineral boron, which acts as a catalyst for the absorption and utilization of the calcium by the body.

Dieters Dream Food
Chia, as an ingredient, is a dieter’s dream food. There are limitless ways to incorporate the Chia seed into your diet. Chia can be prepared with pure water before using in recipes. The seed will absorb 9 times its weight in water in less than 10 minutes and is very simple to prepare.

Food Extender/Calorie Displacer: The optimum ratio of water to seed, for most recipes, is 9-parts water to 1 part seed. One pound of seed will make 10 pounds of Chia gel. This is the most unique structural quality of the Chia seed. The seed’s hydrophilic (water absorbing) saturated cells hold the water, so when it is mixed with foods, it displaces calories and fat without diluting flavor. In fact, I have found that because Chia gel displaces rather than dilutes, it creates more surface area and can actually enhance the flavor rather than dilute it. Chia gel also works as a fat replacer for many recipes.

How to Make Chia Gel?

Making Chia Gel (9 to 1 ratio): Put water in a sealable plastic container and slowly pour seed into water while briskly mixing with a wire whisk. This process will avoid any clumping of the seed. Wait a couple of minutes, whisk again and let stand for 5 to 10 minutes. Whisk again before using or storing in refrigerator (Gel will keep up to 2 weeks). You can add this mix to jams, jellies, hot or cold cereals, yogurts, mustard, catsup, tartar sauce, BBQ sauce, etc… Add the gel, between 50% to 75% by volume, to any of the non-bake mentioned foods, mix well and taste. You will notice a very smooth texture with the integrity of the flavor intact. In addition to adding up to 50% to 75% more volume to the foods used, you have displaced calories and fat by incorporating an ingredient that is 90% water. Use as a fat replacer, for energy and endurance, or for added great taste, buy substituting the oil in your breads with Chia gel. Top your favorite bread dough before baking with Chia gel (for toping on baked goods, breads, cookies, piecrust, etc., reduce the water ratio to 8 parts water to 1 part Chia seed) for added shelf life.

There are additional benefits from the Chia seed aside from the nutritive enhancements when used as an ingredient. It was also used by the Indians and missionaries as a poultice for gunshot wounds and other serious injuries. They would pack the wounds with Chia seeds to avoid infections and promote healing. There is a wealth of benefits beyond the information outlined in this article and treasure-trove of benefits yet to be discovered. Chia seed, having a qualitatively unique situational richness along with a profound nutritive profile is one of man’s most useful and beneficial foods and is destined to be the Ancient Food of the Future.

We recommend 2 tablespoons (20g) daily of chia seed, providing over 4000mg of Omega-3, to help you restore the lost balance between Omega-3 and Omega-6.

Chia seeds are an excellent source of fiber:
Thanks to its water retention capacity (WRC), its cationic exchange capacity (CEC), its organic molecule absorption capacity (OMAC), and its water absorption capacity (WAC), the fiber in Chia seeds has the ideal characteristics for the food industry, compared to other fiber sources such as flax seeds, vanilla sheath waste, and wheat bran.

Mucilage in Chia seeds as a food ingredient:
Due to its physics-chemical characteristics, mucilage can be used as thickener in a series of applications, because of its excellent hydrating capacity.

Chia seeds as a protein source of high biological value:
Chia seeds contain 20% protein with all essential amino acids, which makes it a vegetal protein alternative with high nutritional, economic and versatile value.

Gelatinized Maca Root Powder 

Gelatinized Maca Root Powder

Maca Root is also known as Lepidium mayenil.

What is Maca Root?

Often called “Peruvian Ginseng”, Maca is a unique root tuber with usage dating back to the mid 15th century. Natives of this area ate it raw, cooked or boiled and it became a staple in their everyday diet. Contrary to some literature citing its use some 2000 years ago to tout sexual stamina, this is hardly correct. Truth is, the rough terrain of this region made it difficult to cultivate food so most of the communities diet was dependant on wild gathered material, hence the Maca was incorporated into their daily food consumption. It resembles a radish and is actually a close relative as well. The growing conditions are very specific and it will only thrive in the glaciated slopes of the Andes with a prime elevation of 12,000 to 15,000 feet above sea level.

Currently the country of Peru is heavily subsidizing and studying the benefits of this root and several reports from educational and scientific institutions have showed significant: (120-200%) increases in sexual endurance, physical stamina, adaptability to stressful situations an increase in both the number and activity of spermatazoids (sperm).


Maca’s Primary Benefits

  • Energy / Fatigue: Generates core energy in the body and mind; not an external stimulant like caffeine. Maca is invigorating and uplifting through a powerful and distinct nutritional profile.

  • Menopause: This is a prominent use, gaining recognition worldwide. For many people it is very effective. Maca nourishes the endocrine system, balancing the manufacture of hormones naturally in the body. It does not act upon hormones directly, which is why it is so gentle and effective for this purpose. This concentrated gelatinized form is considered stronger than Black Cohosh, Chaste Berry, and Wild Yam for hormonal regulation purposes.

  • Libido: Maca is marketed under this banner more often than not, as it is a powerful restorer and enhancer of libido. It is one of the few supplements that is equally effective in both men and women for this purpose. This gelatinized form contains much higher concentrations of the libido-enhancing compounds often touted by manufacturers.

  • Impotence / Infertility: Maca treats impotence and infertility in both men and women. Maca is well known in Peru for it’s ability to ensure fertility in animals at high altitudes. It is prescribed for the same reason in humans, as it increases virility, oxygen transport.

  • ADD / Stress: Through the concentrated power of it’s nutrition, Maca can help to enhance concentration and decrease stress, being a powerful tool in addressing attention issues. The owner of Skyfield Tropical has used it primarily for this purpose for many years, and recommends it often to others with similar issues.


  • Malnutrition: Maca is remarkably nutritious, having a profile of highly bio-available nutrients akin to a good multi-vitamin. A gelatinized maca, in being free of fibers and most carbohydrates, is nearly 100% digestible, and is quickly assimilated. When dissolved into liquids, many of its active nutrients enter the bloodstream within 20 minutes of ingestion.

  • Thyroid: Only gelatinized / cooked maca is being used to treat thyroid problems. Maca is also good source of iodine, which can assist in hypothyroidism. Raw maca cannot be used for this purpose, as it contains goitrogens which must be deactivated by cooking. Maca is a cruciferous vegetable, like broccoli or turnips.

While this information has not been thoroughly reviewed or studied much outside of Peru, the users’ testimonies for the last several years are notable.

Why Did I Start Using Maca Root Powder?

After having followed the doctor’s orders and taken the Steroids, that came along with all the terrible side effects, I did much research, and found Maca Root Powder. As an adaptagenic product, I found it balanced my endrocine system – which had been totally screwed up by the Steroids, and after 3 weeks of Maca usage, my period came back (after its 3 month disappearance from the steroid use). That’s when I knew my endocrine was being re-balanced. I also wanted something that would give me more energy, as I had been so fatigued and exhausted after the steroid use. I am very pleased with the results so far, and I can feel the Libido slowly returning as well (that was stripped away from the use of Steroids as well).

How Do I Take my Gelatinized Maca Root Powder?

I take it daily, mixed in my breakfast shake.


Nutritional Value

High in minerals (calcium, potassium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, and zinc), sterols (6 found), up to 20 essential fatty acids, lipids, fiber, carbohydrates, protein, and amino acids.

Parts Used

The whole powdered or sliced root in either raw or roasted form.

Typical Preparations

The whole root can be eaten raw, sliced, cooked, boiled or baked. Currently Western users utilize it in the form of a medicinal drink made from the powder or, taken in the form of tablets, capsules, and as a liquid extract. It can be easily and safely sprinkled in culinary dishes.


Not much research has been carried out for this particular botanical out of its native country Peru, but several distinguished journals and scientists worldwide have supported what the Peruvian researchers have done and the preliminary studies they published. Maca root is being effectively administered to both men and women to help increase libido, men’s sperm activity, and to assist both sexes with issues regarding their physical endurance and threshold. Most Maca roots are being wildharvested and we foresee grave danger for the safety and sustainability of this botanical. Trial cultivation plots are under way; attempting to address the situation. With any luck we will see an increase of imported Maca from this source. As with all potentially endangered plants, consume consciously.


To date no record of any contraindications, adverse effects, or toxicity have been found.

Pro Optimal Whey Protein

Dr. Mercola’s Pro-Optimal Whey Protein

Because Whey Protein contains high concentrations of Glutamine, which is one of the most important nutrients for your intestines. Glutamine is the primary energy source for your immune system. It has the ability to “repair Leaky Gut Syndrome” by maintaining the integrity of the bowels.

Although Glutamine is an amino acid that is frequently used as a sports and fitness supplement, it has been found to help modulate the immune system and protect the mucosal protective layer in the intestine. Studies have demonstrated that glutamine can help improve blood flow in inflamed segments of the colon in patients who have ulcerative colitis, although its benefits did not extend to the most seriously affected portion of the colon (Kruschewski M et al 1998). Glutamine is also able to reduce leakiness of the intestine, which may help to reduce symptoms of inflammatory bowel disease.

Glutathione, a small peptide found in the highest concentrations in fresh vegetables, fruits, and lean meats is also beneficial to the small intestine, since it can directly act as an antioxidant in the intestinal tract and help decrease damaging molecules that may be produced during inflammation. Vitamin C, from citrus fruits, and vitamin E, found in whole grain cereals and nut oils, are important antioxidants for the small intestine and work with glutathione to support intestinal healing.The cells that line the intestinal tract need fuel to continue their process of nutrient uptake. The preferred fuel for these cells is the amino acid glutamine, which can be obtained from proteins. Some studies have shown that short-chain fatty acids may also support the small intestinal tract barrier because they can serve as an alternate fuel for the cells that make up the intestinal lining. The small intestinal tract cells also require energy to maintain integrity of the cell wall, and production of energy requires healthy levels of vitamin B5. Mushrooms, cauliflower, sunflower seeds, corn, broccoli, and yogurt are concentrated sources of vitamin B5. The intestinal tract cells also require a number of vitamins, so adequate overall nutrition is necessary.

What do you need to know? 9 Essentials to Look for in Your Whey Protein Powder

Many make it a point to start their day with a whey protein shake . They aim to support good bacteria in their gut and boost their energy and muscle strength – not to mention give their mornings a delicious start!

The bad news is that not all whey protein powders are created equal.

Natural health expert Dr. Joseph Mercola says that many commercially-available whey protein powders “are significantly damaged and nutritionally deficient due to over-processing and because the original source of the whey is compromised.”

Dangerous levels of heavy metals are also found in some popular leading brands. A recent test from Consumer Reports showed that 3 of the 15 protein drinks tested contained risky levels of arsenic, cadmium, and lead.

Unsure about your whey protein powder? Dr. Mercola presents the 9 essentials to look for:

  • All-natural, grass-fed cows’ whey
    Beware of pesticide-treated, grain-fed cows’ whey. All-natural, grass-fed cows’ whey offers a superior amino acid and nutrient profile. It is also rich in healthy fats like lipolic acid and conjugated linoleic acid (CLA).
  • Hormone-free, NOT hormonally treated cow source
    “Many American dairy farmers inject the hormone rBGH in dairy cows to increase milk production. This hormone has been linked to serious diseases, including cancer,” reveals Dr. Mercola.
  • Cold-processed, NOT heat-processed
    Cold processing protects the natural nutrients in whey. Heat processing, on the other hand, makes the whey acidic, nutritionally deficient, and inadequate for consumption. It also damages the amino acids and micronutrients that are present.
  • Acid-free processing, NOT acid / ion exchange processing
    Acid / ion exchange processing may be cheaper, but it denatures the amino acid profiles. This is because it uses acids and chemicals to separate the whey from the fats.
  • Whey protein concentrate
    Say no to protein isolates, or proteins that are stripped away from their nutritional cofactors. Your body cannot assimilate proteins in isolated form.
  • Low carb and naturally sweetened
    Never take anything with artificial sweeteners, unless you want to subject yourself to a host of health problems. Your whey protein powder should be low glycemic, low carb, and not contain sugar, gluten, artificial sweeteners, fructose, glycerin, or sugar alcohol.
  • Maximum biological value
    The ingredients, source, nutrient concentration, and type of processing affect the whey’s quality and ability to deliver health benefits. Choose one that can retain maximum biological value – instead of those that are damaged and missing key amino acids and nutrients.
  • Easy to digest
    Avoid digestive stress. Look for a whey protein powder with medium chain triglycerides (MCT), which supports easy absorption and quick digestion. All-natural coconut oil is the best source of MCT, says Dr. Mercola.
  • Free from toxic heavy metals
    Both whey and non-whey protein powders could contain harmful levels of heavy metals: mercury, lead, arsenic, and cadmium, to name a few. Choose ones that have no or very low levels that won’t pose a health risk.

Where do I buy my Whey Protein?

I take Dr. Mercola’s Pro-Optimal Whey Protein because it is well formulated into a high quality product which gives you what you need: Glutamine, and Glutathione, and to make it easily digestible it contains some digestive enzymes as well. It is available in vanilla, strawberry and chocolate flavors, and if you don’t like it, you can try one of his other high quality whey protein products – all manufactured to the same high standard. His Whey Protein products satisfy all the nine essentials above, and is certified free of GMO ingredients, pesticides, and chemicals. You can get his Pro-Optimal Whey Protein on his website.

How Do I Take Pro-Optimal Whey Protein?

I take it daily, mixed in my breakfast shake.

Multi-Strained Probiotics

Multi-Strained Probiotics

With the increased popularity of Probiotics, there are many to choose from, and all they contain various live strains of good bacteria – most of them contain anywhere between 35 million bacteria to 60 billion bacteria. In a perfect world, if you can get your doctor to write you a prescription for VSL #3 DS (double strength), it would be very effective and probably only cost you a small copay. However if you have to purchase out of pocket VSL#3, it is very expensive, and frankly un-affordable for most people.  So, if you fall into the latter group, I would recommend you try an excellent Probiotic, called Floracor-GI Probiotics (see below), as it is a very effective, multi-strained, great quality, and very affordable Probiotics (I use them too).


How does VSL#3 work?

VSL#3® is a high-potency medical food probiotic consisting of live freeze-dried lactic acid bacteria. Each dose contains 450 billion live lactic acid bacteria per packet in defined ratios of lyophilized Bifidobacterium breve, Bifidobacterium longum, Bifidobacterium infantis, Lactobacillus acidophilus, Lactobacillus plantarum, Lactobacillus paracasei, Lactobacillus bulgaricus, Streptococcus thermophilus.

The human gastrointestinal (GI) system is populated by thousands of billions of beneficial bacteria that act as a protective barrier throughout the GI system. These bacteria perform a variety of important biochemical functions from enhancing the protective intestinal barrier to modulating intestinal inflammation by reduction of the pro-inflammatory cytokines IL-1α, and reducing colonic permeability, and enhance barrier function.

Under some conditions the number of pathogenic (“bad”) bacteria in a person’s intestines can begin to outnumber the good bacteria. Numerous studies have implicated the overgrowth of pathogenic bacteria in certain intestinal disorders.21,40 Studies have shown that patients with ulcerative colitis (UC), irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), or an ileal pouch tend to have a decreased concentration of beneficial bacteria.4,14,52 This deficiency could lead to more flare-ups and issues with diarrhea, frequency, and urgency.

VSL#3® is the only medical food that can restore beneficial intestinal bacteria in UC, IBS and pouch patients with optimal quantities and types of beneficial bacteria.

VSL#3® has been the subject of extensive clinical research in the dietary management of ulcerative colitis, irritable bowel syndrome, an ileal pouch, and several other clinical conditions.

If you want to read all the medical and scientific studies, click on this link and you can read the medical research on VSL#3.



VSL #3 is very expensive, and if it isn’t covered your insurance, it may be un-affordable.  For this reason, I have researched another Probiotics product, which I personally use, which has been very effective, it is called:  Floracor-GI Probiotics.

What is Floracor-GI Probiotics? 

Floracor-GI® is a revolutionary blend of probiotics, prebiotics and enzymes especially formulated to help maintain a proper balance of intestinal microflora, inhibit pathogenic bacteria and prevent the overgrowth of yeast organisms, mainly Candida.*


Candida albicans is usually a harmless yeast present in the body. However, stress, in the form of modern lifestyles, hormonal imbalances, excessive sugar consumption, environmental pollutants, and pharmaceutical drugs, including antibiotics and oral contraceptives, can wreak havoc on the proper balance of microorganisms in the gastro-intestinal tract.

Candida, being an opportunistic organism, will flourish under these adverse conditions. And when Candida is anchored to the intestinal tract, intestinal leakage and immune disorders may result.

Candida removal is the logical first step toward effective intestinal cleansing. The protease enzyme Serrapeptase and enzymes like Cellulase and Chitosanase attack the outer cell wall of Candida yeast, weakening its hold on the intestinal mucosa and reducing their viability.

Floracor-GI distinguishes itself from other intestinal cleansing formulas in the following ways:

  • Chitosanase is a unique and powerful enzyme that helps to break down chitin, an important part of the structure of the Candida cell wall. Cellulase enhances this activity by breaking down the cellulose component of the cell wall.
  • SEBiotic® is a special spore-forming probiotic that is incredibly stable in the dormant state. Using our Enhanced Probiotic Delivery System™(EPDS), this probiotic can exist in a dehydrated state indefinitely.
  • EPDS™ delivers larger amounts of living bacteria into the intestinal tract, where they colonize and flourish. Once in the intestinal tract, these bacteria exit their spores, attach themselves to the intestinal mucosa, and begin to germinate, producing new colonies of friendly bacteria.
  • Fructooligosaccharides (FOS), nutrient-dense alfalfa and papaya powder comprise a fortified prebiotic blend, which enhances the growth and stability of probiotics in the gut.
  • High-activity proteases, including Peptizyme-SP brand serrapeptase, hydrolyze putrefying food matter trapped between the intestinal villi, which can cause sluggish digestion, bloating and an increase in toxins. These enzymes create a better intestinal environment, improved absorption, motility and better overall colon health.

Floracor-GI is a thorough and effective intestinal cleansing containing the following ingredients:

  • Alfalfa Powder Promotes colon health and is a rich source of vitamins and minerals, and protein. It works well with prebiotics in promoting overall digestive health.
  • Amla Also known as Indian gooseberry (Emblica officinalis); a natural and efficacious antioxidant, and one of the richest sources of absorbable Vitamin C.
  • Papaya Juice Powder From green papaya; it is dehydrated at a controlled temperature to ensure its maximum nutritional value. Retains the natural proteolytic enzyme papain, which has been used for centuries as an effective digestive aid.
  • Lactobacillus acidophilus Probiotic that produces lactic acid, which inhibits the growth of pathogenic bacteria and yeasts.
  • Lactobacillus casei Probiotic that produces lactic acid and has a wide pH and temperature range; complements the growth of L. acidophilus in the production of the enzyme amylase.
  • Lactobacillus bulgaricus Probiotic widely known to increase longevity; cooperates with L. acidophilus in creating a protective colonization in the intestinal tract.
  • Lactobacillus plantarum Probiotic that works with L. acidophilus in inhibiting pathogens; also produces L-lysine, a beneficial amino acid.
  • Lactobacillus brevis Species of lactic acid bacteria; prevalent in fermented foods such as sauerkraut and pickles; found to improve the immune system health.
  • Lactobacillus caucasium Species of lactic acid bacteria used for its health-promoting properties.
  • Lactobacillus helveticus Lactic acid producing rod shaped bacterium of the genus.
  • Lactobacillus; most commonly used in the production of cheese. Some research indicates powdered milk fermented with L. helveticus helps reduce blood pressure.
  •  Bifidobacterium bifidum A probiotic well-documented for its adverse effect on pathogenic or disease causing bacteria; bifidobacteria aid in digestion, and are often used as probiotics (good bacteria) for their immune stimulating properties.
  •  SEBiotic (Bacillus coagulans or Lactobacillus Sporogenes) Spore-forming lactogenic probiotic with the trade name SEBiotic. As with other probiotics, it demonstrates significant immune strengthening properties. As a spore forming probiotic and through our Enhanced Probiotic Delivery System (EPDS), more SEBiotic is delivered to the gut where the bacteria begin to germinate, and eventually colonize.
  • Saccharomyces boulardii Probiotic that helps maintain and restore the balance of microflora in the large and small intestine.
  • Fructooligosaccharides (FOS) Short-chain sugars that stimulate the growth of probiotics in the digestive system.
  • SEBiotic (Bacillus coagulans or Lactobacillus Sporogenes) Makes minerals bioactive and available to the cells of the body including probiotics. They stimulate metabolism, enhance respiration, increase metabolism of proteins, the activity of multiple enzymes, enhances the permeability of cell membranes and promotes cell division.

 Vitamin D3, Krill Oil (DHA), and Vitamin K2 Supplements

Vitamin D3, Krill Oil (DHA), and Vitamin K2 Supplements

There are some key supplements which play an important role in enhanced immunity and protection for those suffering with IBS, IBD, Ulcerative Colitis, and Crohn’s Disease – these are:

Vitamin D3, Krill Oil (DHA), and Vitamin K2

A)The Importance of getting Daily supplementation of Krill Oil (DHA) Daily – Why?

Why Is Krill Oil So Important in IBD, UC, and Crohn’s?

Because research has shown Omega 3′s play an important role as an anti-inflammatory.

We have discussed in prior Updates (#11, #19) the importance of Diet in the role of IBD, UC, and Crohn’s, especially the importance of ensuring you eat an anti-inflammatory diet because the source of all disease is inflammation. We will cover this in detail in another future Update as well.


Regardless of how well you’re eating, it’s really impossible to get all your nutritional needs through your foods these days anyway.


That’s the reason I generally suggest supplementing with certain vitamins, but since Omega 3′s are anti-inflammatory, this too must be added to your daily regimen to ensure you’re combatting the inflammation that is part of this disease process.


Has your doctor suggested you take Omega 3′s or Krill Oil to help with your IBD, UC, Crohn’s?


As This Study explains,


“…while intake of saturated fat, trans fatty acids and arachidonic acid has been linked to the development of chronic disease, research shows omega 3 fatty acids, specifically fish oils, are essential in the prevention and treatment of disease…”


“… fish oil inhibits the production of these inflammatory compounds…”


And as to the connection between fish oil, inflammation and its effect on IBD, UC, and Crohn’s,

“… fish oil has been proven to be beneficial in intestinal health. Fish oil has an anti-inflammatory effect on inflammatory bowel disease (Ulcerative Colitis and Crohn’s disease). We can conclude fish consumption can prevent most diseases in humans. Human health is guarantied with fishes regularly consumption in two to three times in week…”

There are many different types of Omega 3′s – some just okay, some very poor quality, and some very good ones.

The only Omega 3 that mimics “nature’s omega 3″ and isn’t made in a laboratory from artificial and synthetic sources, is Krill Oil.

To read the full study click here

“…Conclusion: The results of the present study clearly indicate that Krill Oil  at a daily dose of 300 mg significantly inhibits inflammation and reduces arthritic symptoms within a short treatment period of 7 and 14 days…”

In this Scandinavian study:

“… Based on evidence of SCCAI and AIFAI and a tendency of decreased levels of CRP and homecysteine, intake of atlantic salmon may have beneficial effects on disease activity in patients with mild ulcerative colitis.”

As evidenced in this Study,

“…The results suggest that ω-3 PUFAs are an attractive adjunctive treatment for joint pain associated with rheumatoid arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease, and dysmenorrhea…”

As results shown in the Scandinavian Journal of Gastroenterology,

“… Krill Oil showed protective potential against DSS colitis based on the preservation of colon length, reduction of oxidative markers and the consistent beneficial changes.. “

“Krill Oil showed protective potential against DSS colitis based on the preservation of colon length, reduction of oxidative markers and the consistent beneficial changes of HCS, cytokine, and (PG)E3 levels, as well as PPAR-γ and Pparg1α expression compared with DSS alone. These findings indicate an anti-inflammatory and a protein antioxidant effect of Krill Oil.”


You’re actually getting 2 super supplements in one, for the price of one: Krill Oil + Astaxanthin!

Seeking Health Optimal Krill Oil

Krill Oil with Astaxanthin Product Description

Krill Oil is a rich source of Astaxanthin and the omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA.

Benefits of EPA and DHA

EPA and DHA are omega-3 fatty acids that support cardiovascular health, fight inflammation, and support brain and eye health. DHA is a major componant of brain cell membranes. EPA may stabilize mood and lessen symptoms of depression. Each of these essential fatty acids support reduced inflammation and may lower cholesterol.

What is Astaxanthin?

Astaxanthin is an antioxidant more powerful than vitamin C, E or beta carotene when it comes to free radical scavenging. It is a cartenoid responsible for the red hue assoicated with shrimp and lobster, and it gives the flamingo its pink color. Astaxanthin has been shown to ease pain associated with joint inflammation, fight fatigue, and help with endurance, added energy, and muscle recovery. Krill is one of the few sea creatures that consume a microalgae that is the only natural source of Astaxanthin. Optimal Krill Oil contains 12 mg astaxanthin per serving.

Studies suggest that this high level of astaxanthin offers an array of therapeutic benefits, which may include:

  • • Antioxidant protection – more than green tea, vitamin C, or CoQ10
  • • Cardiovascular health – helping to promote healthy lipid profiles; potential anti–hypertensive
  • • Sports performance – reducing exercise–induced muscle damage and increasing endurance
  • • Eye support – Reducing eye fatigue and improving visual acuity
  • • Supporting skin health – protecting against aging as a result of UVA exposure, such as skin sagging and wrinkles
  • • Anti–inflammatory – reduces inflammation and pain associated with it
  • • Gastric health support – helping to reduce gastric inflammation and reflux symptoms

It would take 8 conventional krill softgels to equal the astaxanthin levels in just 1 capsule of Optimal Krill Oil!

Seeking Health Optimal Krill Oil’s astaxanthin comes from both naturally occurring levels found in krill oil and from AstaREAL®, a registered brand of astaxanthin extracted directly from microalgae using a solvent–free technology that ensures maximum control and purity. AstaREAL® astaxanthin is the most studied astaxanthin in the world with over 40 clinical studies, both animal and human.

Optimal Krill Oil’s Powerful Antioxidant Formula
In addition to its rich phospholipids, omega–3s, and astaxanthin, Optimal Krill Oil also naturally contains several other antioxidants including, canthaxanthin, beta–carotene, vitamin E and trans–retinol vitamin A. These antioxidants offer additional protection from damaging free radicals and also protect this nutrient–dense oil from oxidation.

Seeking Health’s Optimal Krill Oil is made using a unique cold–extraction process that converts it into stable oil. This process protects the lipids from alteration and avoids peroxidation. It is highly purified and free of heavy metals and organohalide pollutants.Optimal Krill Oil does not cause reflux or regurgitation commonly experienced by those consuming regular fish oil supplements.

What’s In (and Not In) Krill Oil?

Added to this product catalog due to the popular demand, Krill Oil is manufactured from antarctic krill. Unlike many fish oil products, antarctic krill are drawn from the coldest waters on earth, are fished far from industrialized areas, and are at the bottom of the food chain. As a result, there is no need to worry about heavy metals or toxins.


One of the major benefits of krill oil that distinguishes it from fish oil is that krill oil contains the caratenoid, astaxanthin. Astaxanthin is considered by many to be one of the strongest antioxidants available. Antioxidants ensure that our cells are not bombarded with harmful free radicals given off during the process of oxidation (oxidation is a naturally occurring by-product of the body using energy or being exposed to toxins).

Astaxanthin can also cross the blood-brain barrier which also helps to inhibit the formation of free radicals in the eye, brain and central nervous system. Krill’s primary diet is algae which contain astaxanthin (which gives the krill their pink color). The strong presence of astaxanthin in krill, and the fact that they are a prime source of this antioxidant for other creatures, makes krill a prime source of health and nutrition for humans, as well.

The Benefit of Additional Antioxidants

In addition to astaxanthin, krill oil contains phosphotidylcholine, vitamin E, vitamin A, and D. All are powerful antioxidants that provide benefit to the body and help prevent the Omega-3 in krill oil from suffering from oxidation and turning rancid. Krill oil, therefore, does not require additional additives to keep it stable and, as a result, tends to have a longer shelf life.


Krill oil contains phosphotidylcholine, a phospholipid. Phospholipids in your cell membranes aid in cell-to-cell communication. Phospholipids are also not dependent on bile for digestion, thus they can spontaneously form micelles and be conveyed in an aqueous environment. In addition, phospholipids are able to be absorbed without digestion in their intact form, or as lysophosphatidylcholine after digestion by enzymes in the small intestine. This simpler digestion process in the small intestine prior to absorption is one of the primary factors suggesting that omega-3 phospholipids offer greater bioavailability in the human body than omega-3 triglycerides.

Omega Fatty Acids

Like fish oil, krill oil contains the omega-3 fatty acids, eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and decosahexaenoic acid (DHA). And, as mentioned above, in krill oil these fatty acids are found in phospholipids, resulting in the absorption and distribution of a higher proportion of EPA and DHA when compared to fish oil where EPA and DHA are found in triglycerides. EPA and DHA are often found in higher actual potency in krill oil and, because krill oil is derived from a shrimp-like crustacean, it can be taken without the fishy smell or flavor.


  • Krill are a shrimp-like crustacean. Therefore, people who have shrimp or shellfish allergies should be very cautious about testing krill oil for the first time and may be well-advised to avoid it all together.
  • People who are on blood thinners such as aspirin, warfarin ( Coumarin, Heparin, Plavix) or NSAIDs ( non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs ) such as ibuprofen ( Motrin, Advil), naproxen ( Naprosyn, Aleve) should seek a doctor’s advice before taking krill oil.
  • Taking krill oil with some herb supplement such as ginkgo biloba and garlic may increase the risk of bleeding.


  • Krill is a Norwegian term for a “young fry of fish”.
  • Krill makes up the second largest biomass on the planet. A shrimp-like crustacean, krill can be found in large swarms that may contain 1 million animals per cubic meter of seawater. This population density is what makes Krill ideal for harvesting and for manufacturing products like krill oil.

As the studies conclude, Krill Oil is superior to Omega 3’s, and in fact, when you buy Krill Oil, you are getting the bonus of an extra supplement, called Astaxanthin, which is very important. And as it turns out, Astaxanthin is one of the most important antioxidants to be found.

Here’s Why:

Major Producer Reveals the Benefits of Astaxanthin—Nature’s Most Powerful Antioxidant

by Dr. Mercola

“…A little-known carotenoid called astaxanthin is now believed to be the most potent antioxidant nature has to offer. Astaxanthin’s benefits are so numerous, I’ve written several articles to cover its many activities, from UV-radiation protection, to eye- and heart health, to improved athletic performance.

In terms of antioxidant power or potency, astaxanthin is 550 times stronger than vitamin E, and 6,000 times stronger than vitamin C!

As an antioxidant, astaxanthin has powerful anti-inflammatory benefits, which makes it useful for a number of diseases associated with inflammation, such as arthritis. However, it’s not a magic cure. Not mistaking astaxanthin for a cure is an important point. However, it can effectively relieve symptoms when taken consistently over several weeks (effects are usually noticeable after about two to four weeks). And in many cases it can do so more effectively than far more expensive and potentially toxic prescription anti-inflammatories and over-the-counter pain killers.

If you are on a krill oil supplement, which naturally contains astaxanthin, take that into consideration. Different krill products have different concentrations of astaxanthin, so check your label. Another factor to keep in mind is that astaxanthin is a fat soluble supplement. So unless you take it with a small amount of fat, it’s not going to absorb well. Butter, coconut oil, or eggs would be ideal complements to ensure optimal absorption…”

A Note About Krill Oil Dosage

For most people, taking 1g of Krill Oil is enough. But for those of us, with immuno-compromised diseases such as IBD, UC, and Crohn’s, as well as those with Inflammatory Diseases, Krill Oil is an important supplement in helping to regulate and minimize inflammation, and studies show for those of us in those classes of diseases, our requirements are higher – between 3-4g of Krill Oil per day.

Now, I don’t suggest you increase it immediately. But do start at the 1g daily dosage, and in 2-3 weeks’ time, increase your dosage to 2g daily, and pay attention to what your body is telling you (i.e. are you noticing a lessening of pains?), then in another 2-3 weeks’ time, increase it again to 3g daily, and see how you feel, this will ensure you’ll be slowly working up to the suggested 3-4g daily dosage while you are listening to your body.

So now that we know the power of Astaxanthin, it just makes sense (and the studies prove it) –  Krill Oil helps with IBD.

b) Vitamin D3 Supplements

In simple terms, if you’re vitamin D deficient, your immune system will not activate to do its job. And since vitamin D also balances your immune response, it prevents an overreaction in the form of inflammation, which can lead to autoimmune disorders like Crohn’s Disease.

So, what can you do?

Make sure your vitamin D levels are optimized. Vitamin D appears to be nearly as effective as the omega-3 fats. Ask your physician to regularly run blood tests on your Vitamin D levels, it’s the only way to determine the correct oral dose of Vitamin D you might require if you are deficient. The best way to get vitamin D is regular sun exposure so make sure you have a healthy tan this summer. If you have a healthy tan there is little reason to measure your D levels as they will likely be near ideal, although data has shown that even in warm and sun climates, such as Florida, California, or Arizona, a great percentage of the population is Vitamin D deficient. Getting the correct test is the first step in this process, as there are TWO vitamin D tests currently being offered: 1,25(OH)D, and 25(OH)D.

The correct test your doctor needs to order is 25(OH)D, also called 25-hydroxyvitamin D, which is the better marker of overall D status. This is the marker that is most strongly associated with overall health.

Next, the “normal” 25-hydroxyvitamin D lab range is between 20-56 ng/ml. The conventional range is really a sign of deficiency, and is too broad to be ideal.

In fact, your vitamin D level should never be below 32 ng/ml, and any levels below 20 ng/ml are considered serious deficiency states, increasing your risk of as many as 16 different cancers and autoimmune diseases like multiple sclerosis and rheumatoid arthritis, heart disease just to name a few.

According to Dr. Mercola, the OPTIMAL value that you’re looking for is 55-65 ng/ml.

These ranges are based on healthy people in tropical or subtropical parts of the world, where they are receiving healthy sun exposures. It seems more than reasonable to assume that these values are in fact reflective of an optimal human requirement.

Because you first need to get blood tested for Vitamin D deficiency (please see the exact description of the specific name of the Vitamin D test referenced on the Alternative Protocol page), which requires a doctor’s prescription and reading the results thereof, I recommend if you are found to be deficient, you start supplementing with Vitamin D3. It is very important to have this monitored through your doctor as Vitamin D3 supplementation if not properly controlled can lead to toxicity.

Per topics covered in our Updates,

An avalanche of favorable studies has resulted in record numbers of Americans supplementing with vitamin D. Since it is virtually impossible to obtain adequate vitamin D from food sources, supplementation with 5,000-10,000 IU daily is required by many aging individuals.

Overlooked many, is the critical importance of vitamin K. If one is concerned enough about their health to take higher dose vitamin D, it seems absurd to miss out on the benefits of vitamin K. For instance, vitamin D facilitates calcium absorption into the bloodstream and thus plays an important role in maintaining bone density. Less recognized is the need for vitamin K to transport calcium from the bloodstream into the bone. Vitamin K is also required by calcium-regulating proteins in the arteries.1-5 Together these two vitamins help maintain youthful calcium skeletal distribution while promoting vascular health.6-11

Vitamin K can be found in small amounts in the diet, but obtaining the desired higher potencies requires supplementation. Many Life Extension members obtain optimal potencies of long-acting vitamin K in the Super Booster or Super K formulations. An increasing number of new members, however, are asking for high-potency vitamin D—but are not taking any supplemental vitamin K.

To directly address this problem, Life Extension® has put together a formula called Vitamins D and K with Sea-Iodine™. Like vitamins D and K, few Americans obtain optimal amounts of iodine. As people seek to limit their salt intake, this deficit is exacerbated since iodized salt is the principal source of this mineral in many diets. We expect the issue of iodine insufficiency to receive more media attention as new studies uncover the problems this creates. Sea-Iodine™ is included in this formula to provide iodine without the harmful effects of sodium.


“It is important to take Vitamin K with Vitamin D. Iodine is also good prevention from diseases that I can’t mention due to restrictions by the FDA.” By LadyDi, Portland, OR


“Makes it easy with three supplements in one.” By Jeneane, Henderson, NV


“Nice combination of 3 important nutrients most of the general population is deficient in. Thanks for combining these into one convenient capsule!” By PR in the OC, Orange County, CA


“I had low Vit D levels that I increased over time and now able to keep it in the good range with this supplement.” By Barb, Sevierville Tn


“A physician prescribed the exact same dosages from a compounding pharmacy. I am a 63 yr old male, 5’7 and 157 pounds with no bone loss issues. Recommended for anti-aging benefits, etc. This LEF formulation is effective and a lot cheaper than the prescribed product. The quality is solid!” By Mr. Maniac, St. Louis, MO


Please Note: Before adding any new supplements, especially those containing Vitamin K, please check with your doctor or pharmacist for any drug interactions ( this is especially true if you are on any meds like Coumadin).


Vitamin D Testing

(should be done every 3-4 months, especially if you are supplementing with Vitamin D3)

As a result of the Vitamin D3 testing, and to ensure I am getting adequate
Vitamin D3, I’ve been taking Vitamin D and K with Iodine.
As we have discussed in numerous Updates, Vitamin D is not only essential to good health and your immune system working properly, but it’s critical that levels be elevated when you have IBD, UC, and Crohn’s.
Here’s an interesting and important article on Vitamin D, featuring the interview with Michael F. Holick, PhD, MD The Pioneer of Vitamin D Research, click here to read it.

Recent research has shown that vitamin D is important to every cell and tissue throughout the body. From proper immune function and bone density to heart health and mood disorders, vitamin D is critical for optimal health.

You should know your Vitamin D blood level. Life Extension offers a reliable vitamin D blood test at a fraction of what most commercial blood labs charge. Optimal blood levels of vitamin D are often far greater than the standard reference range. The only way to achieve an optimal level is through proper supplementation.

5 Stars out of 5, Great way to keep current on Vit D level


“LEF tests through LabCorp are a cost effective way to monitor blood levels of essentials for which insurance does not pay. LEF order to LabCorp arrived in 2 days. Lab just 3 miles from home. LabCorp results were received through LEF in less than 36 hours from blood draw! That’s speedy!!!Thanks LEF for making this possible.” by Marksman, from Texas Panhandle

5 Stars out of 5, Excellent way to test for vitamin D


“Since insurance may not pay for repeated testings to get vitamin D in optimal ranges, LEF’s test is an inexpensive way to do repeat testing. I used the recommendations of the Vitamin D Foundation and the information provided by Dr. Joseph Mercola, along with my Integrative health doctor to strive for an optimal range. Unfortunately the lab’s range is still lagging behind the science, though the testing results are accurate.” By Marie F, from Vinton, VA


5 Stars out of 5, Vitamin D from 28 to 61


“I was tested with a 28 ng/ml at my doctor’s office. No mention was made to be concerned. I increased my Vitamin intake to 7500 daily for over six months and then had the test taken through L.E.F. My vitamin D increased to 61 ng/ml. I feel empowered that I was able to correct a deficiency before it became a real problem.” by YogaGirl, from Troy, MI





c) Vitamin K2 Supplements

The following conditions may put you at an increased risk of vitamin K deficiency:

  • Eating a poor or restricted diet
  • Crohn’s Disease, Ulcerative Colitis, Celiac Disease and other conditions that interfere with nutrient absorption
  • Liver disease that interferes with vitamin K storage
  • Taking drugs such as broad-spectrum antibiotics, cholesterol drugs and aspirin

Who Needs Vitamin K?

If you have, or if your family has, a history of osteoporosis or heart disease, or any of the IBD diseases such as IBS, Ulcerative Colitis, Crohn’s Disease, studies indicate the importance of adding vitamin K to your diet. Keep in mind that you’d have to eat over one pound of collard greens daily to get the equivalent amount of vitamin K. Clearly the collard greens or spinach would be better for you and would provide you with additional benefits, but if you already have heart disease a little extra vitamin K would seem a simple bit of insurance to make sure that your blood vessels don’t harden.

You will also want to consider adding vitamin K to your diet if you do not eat many vegetables and are concerned that, for whatever reason, you are unable to obtain enough vitamin K from your food.

And because there is a Synergistic Effects Between Vitamin K and Vitamin D.

It’s important to realize that vitamin K does not work alone. It needs collaborators—and vitamin D is an important one.

Different Kinds of Vitamin K

Vitamin K can be classified as either K1 or K2:

Vitamin K1: Found in green vegetables, K1 goes directly to your liver and helps you maintain a healthy blood clotting system. (This is the kind of K that infants need to help prevent a serious bleeding disorder.) It is also vitamin K1 that keeps your own blood vessels from calcifying, and helps your bones retain calcium and develop the right crystalline structure.
Vitamin K2: Bacteria produce this type of vitamin K. It is present in high quantities in your gut, but unfortunately is not absorbed from there and passes out in your stool. K2 goes straight to vessel walls, bones, and tissues other than your liver. It is present in fermented foods, particularly cheese and the Japanese food natto, which is by far the richest source of K2.

According to Dr. Mercola, he strongly encourages those concerned about Vitamin K deficiency to make sure they find some regular source of vitamin K2. This will mean eating about four ounces of fermented cheese a day (preferably raw) or taking a high quality vitamin K2 supplement, which is what I have opted to do.

Click here to see the K2 I take

This Vitamin K2 product is an important one to take, BUT should only be taken if you are simply taking Vitamin D3 ( not with the one in #2 above, Vitamins D & K, with Sea Iodine, because this one already contains Vitamin K2 in it). The reason I am giving you information on this one, is because I want to give you options to take it separately.

There are three forms of vitamin K that the human body can utilize to promote arterial health and bone support.1-8 Life Extension®’s Super K with Advanced K2 Complex provides the dynamic trio of vitamin K forms in one softgel, including vitamin K1, vitamin K2 (MK-4), and vitamin K2 (MK-7).

Vitamin K1 is the form of vitamin K that is found in green vegetables. K1 is tightly bound to plant fiber, so only a fraction is absorbed into the bloodstream. Supplementation ensures ample K1 blood levels. Vitamin K2 is usually found in meats, dairy, and egg yolks. Since you may be avoiding these foods for health reasons, ingesting a K2 supplement is essential. MK-4 is the most rapidly absorbed form of K2, and MK-7boasts a very long half-life in the body, making both forms the perfect complement to any vitamin K regimen.9


“Mk7 is recommended by Dr.Mercola to take with vitamin D. I trust him on this. I’m not sure if I get enough K in my diet as I’m not a big eater and I don’t eat lots of eggs,cheese,cream,natto etc. This will help.”  By Liz the healthnut , Portland OR


“Have been using this product for years as one of many supplements to help keep bones strong. My bone density scan showed improvement.” By Linda T, Plantation FL


“Convenient and such an important supplement!” By *Small But Mighty, Mililani, HI


“Perhaps your annual physical might show some results…As for me, I feel GR8… Use as directed…” By Dr Dopey, Texas
Please Note: Before adding any new supplements, especially those containing Vitamin K, please check with your doctor or pharmacist for any drug interactions ( this is especially true if you are on any meds like Coumadin).

Imagine a protein drink that you can make taste like anything you want, any time you want. Dutch Chocolate, French Vanilla, Irish Cream, Kona Coffee, or just Orange Juice, you name it! You are only limited by your own imagination. Our All Natural, 100% Pure Liquid Egg Whites are pasteurized, salmonella tested, USDA & Kosher approved. Best of all, they are double filtered to have the smooth consistency of milk.

You can literally take one cup of liquid egg whites, and make the fluffiest omelet you have ever had. OR, take one cup of liquid egg whites, and add some sugar free chocolate syrup, and you and your kids, if you have any, would not know it’s not chocolate milk. REALLY!

One 8-ounce cup of liquid egg whites supplies 26 grams of pure 100% bioavailable protein, with only 2 carbs., Zero Fat, Zero Cholesterol, and only 120 calories. Basically, 10 eggwhites. The worlds best protein for losing weight, managing weight, and for building muscle.

Liquid “NOT RAW” egg whites are 100% Bio-Available!

Which means that none of the Amino acids are wasted. Powdered egg whites and protein powders in general, are only 70% to 80% bio-available at best. The powders only support muscle growth for 2 to 3 hours. Our liquid egg whites are 100% bio-available and support muscle growth for up to 4 to 5 hours.

What’s the difference between LIQUID and RAW egg whites?

The human body cannot completely and safely digest a raw egg white. So, if you like to do the “Rocky Routine” with a raw egg or raw egg white in your drink, you are wasting your time, not to mention the threat of Salmonella. Avidin, which is found in raw egg whites, blocks the uptake of Vitamin B6 (Biotin) causing a vitamin deficiency. You must cook the egg white to neutralize the Avidin and allow your body to safely digest the protein and utilize all its Amino acids. Unfortunately, cooking also starts to destory the protein.

Our 100% pure liquid egg whites from Egg Whites International are heat pasteurized and salmonella tested. The pasteurization process heats the egg white to 134 degrees for 3½ minutes. This heat kills the salmonella and neutralizes the Avidin to allow the egg whites to be digested safely by the human body. When you cook an egg white to the point of scrambled eggs, you are overcooking the protein and denaturing the true value of the protein. Therefore, 100% Pure Liquid Egg Whites are liquid but not raw, making them the purest form of protein In The Entire World! They will stay good in your refrigerator for 90 to 120 days and can be safely kept frozen indefinitely.

What is the best way to use them?

In a drink! Most people are looking for the instant breakfast, or a fast Hi Protein meal on the go. It could be a protein powder, or a slim fast shake. Most active people, who are using protein powders, are using about 40 grams of protein powder, and mixing it with water or milk. Usually 2 scoops of powder at 20 grams per scoop. However, there is no protein powder in the world today that is better than 70 to 80% bioavailable. And, most only support muscle growth for 2 to 3 hours. This means that out of 40 grams of protein powder you are consuming, your body is only using 28 to 32 grams at best!

People are paying $45.00 for a 4lb can of powder. Now you can make that can worth $90.00, by using half as much, or only one scoop of protein powder. The 20 grams of protein powder at 70%, gives your body 14 grams. Mix it with one 8 oz cup of liquid egg whites at 26 grams of 100% bioavailable protein, and you now get a true 40 grams of protein in your body. And, the egg whites support muscle growth for up to 4 to 5 hours.

They are also the most versatile form of protein because you can use them in just about anything you want. They make great omelets, and can be used in any cooking or baking recipe in place of a whole egg. They can be added to almost any cold drink without changing the flavor. You can even drink them straight. They will have no real taste by themselves. Your kids will even drink them by just adding some chocolate syrup to 8 ounces of liquid egg whites, shake well, and they will taste the same as chocolate milk. What better way to get protein into your kids? Mix them with orange juice, tomato juice, fruit and yogurt smoothies, and milk etc…

What ever you like to drink, it can now be protein enriched!

How much protein should you consume in a day?

The average “Active” person requires about 1 gram of protein per pound of lean body weight per day. Most people never get that much protein in a day. The Atkins Diet is the prime example of people who almost get that much protein in a day. Bodybuilders take in 1 ½ to 3 times that amount. While a non-active elderly person might only need half that amount.

Perfect for losing weight or building muscle. No more cracking and separating the egg whites from the yolks, and then having to take the time to cook them, eat them, and then clean up the mess.

Most Bodybuilders today, are cracking and separating a dozen egg whites in the morning and then another dozen before bedtime. That’s 14 dozen eggs a week and a lot of work but now it’s completely unnecessary when you use our Liquid Egg Whites!

Remember, protein is the basic building block for muscle and the more muscle you have the higher your metabolism which in turn burns calories and helps to reduce fat.

How often do you use liquid egg whites?

At least twice a day. First meal in the morning and just before bed. This is the most convenient time that you are at home where your refrigerator is located. You don’t want to pre-mix a shake to take with you to work or the gym. The egg whites will separate and thicken the longer they are sitting in the powder. You can keep a spare bottle at work if you have a refrigerator. It is better to drink the liquid egg whites at the same time you mix them into your drink.

Proteins are usually digested every 3 to 4 hours. Most diets tell you to eat 5 to 6 times a day. That does not mean you have to eat 5 to 6 full meals a day. It usually means to start with a protein shake in the morning, eat a light healthy lunch, have a protein shake mid day, eat a healthy dinner, and finally, have a protein shake before you go to bed. This will keep your metabolism working to burn fat and build muscle, and you will have more energy. However, you will not build muscle unless you work them.

If you are working out at the gym or just exercising at home, it is important that you understand what your muscles need. You must get protein into your body within 30 minutes of your workout, or your workout was a total waste of time. Right after your workout is when your muscles are tingling and looking for proteins to build on. Give it to them!

Why take protein before bedtime?

Bodybuilders have known for decades that if you don’t put protein into your body before you go to bed, your body will run out of protein about 2 am. Once your body digests all of its available protein, your body thinks it is starving itself. To protect you, your body shuts down and starts storing your fat cells. The blood sugar still needs protein to keep you going, so it starts consuming the only protein source available, your own muscle mass. Basically, you are storing fat and eating muscle.

By drinking a high protein drink with liquid egg whites just before you go to bed, they will support muscle growth for up to 4 to 5 hours. Now the process is reversed for most of your sleep time. Rather than storing fat and eating muscle, the time-release protein from the egg whites, is allowing your body to burn the fat at its normal rate while building on the muscle. That is why bodybuilders eat a dozen egg whites before bedtime.

You will get a better night sleep, and wake up more alert and less hungry in the morning.

Serious competitive Bodybuilders, who are using a protein powder before bedtime, are getting up at 2 am and taking another protein drink to sustain them until morning. No need to do this with our egg whites as they stay “Anabolic” in the body for up to 5 hours!

“Hi Mac and the gang! I wanted to write you and add my testimonial… since I was diagnosed with GERD, I have had to take medication DAILY!! Could not miss a day or it would be like I was swallowing fire every time I ate. Just wanted to say, since I have been using your Egg Whites, I have not needed ANY medication!! Not to mention, the medication was very expensive, Egg Whites are saving me money on top of saving my dream to compete!!! I’m so excited for the show season to start!! Your amazing product will be with me all the way!! Liquid Egg Whites are the ONLY way to go for any competitor, weight loss, or health/digestive reasons!!! Thank you so much!! Liquid Eggs can be used anyone who wants the BEST protein, and I only use the best!!!

This is my Egg Whites story… I saw the advertisements for Egg Whites International in Oxygen Mag and thought, “Ewwwww, egg whites? Aren’t they slimy and gross?” That was before the Europa Orlando show 2010 where I met JD and the gang. He patiently explained what egg whites were, gave me a sample, and I was hooked!! I am a Firefighter/EMT and I have a hectic schedule, so getting proper amounts of protein wasn’t always easy. I weighed in at 176 pounds, but I wanted to compete in Bikini. Now, how to figure out how to have the proper diet… this is where the amazing Egg Whites International came in to play.

Being able to mix them into anything, it made getting my protein so easy, and if I wasn’t in the fire station to make my food, I could just grab a shake and take it with me!!

I decided that competing next year was too far away and my impatience won out. I decided to enter the Flex Bikini Model search in Las Vegas at the Olympia. But, sadly, I am a bit of a procrastinator. I started training for the show July 12, 2010. Like I said, I was very heavy for my almost 5’3″ height, 176 lbs. So a huge change in diet, and training began. Thank goodness for Egg Whites International!

After a night in the hospital due to chest pains, it was discovered I had Gastro Esophageal Reflux Disease. It is so very painful! So many foods and spices affect it, I kept thinking, “How am I going to eat right for this show, if everything I eat burns me up?” Again, Egg Whites International saved the day. I just can’t say enough about how wonderful they are, as well as for my 5-year-old son, who wants to beat his daddy’s World Raw Bench Press record. He loves protein shakes made with Egg Whites! I even put them in my coffee! I tell everyone I can about them, because I love them and they are an absolute necessity to any weight loss or competition regimen! I will never be without my Egg Whites! They say a picture is worth a thousand words, so I have attached some of my before and after pics. If I keep writing on how much I love this product and how much I have come to depend on them I could write several pages or a short book! lol Again, thank you so much for this amazing, wonderful product that is the best thing to hit the health food/fitness industry!!!” – – Shelly Stewart / Customer


“I have been using your product for about a week now and I wanted to let you know how great it has been. I am probably a little different than your average user. I have a severe pain from a spine injury in the upper back. This means that any pressure from having a full stomach sends me into 10 out of 10 pain. I also have gastroparesis which, in short, is a paralyzed stomach. That in itself causes more pain and solid foods are not digested properly which can lead to all sorts of problems including diabetes. Liquids on the other hand are easily passed on to the small intestine even in someone with gastroparesis.

For most of my life I have tried to be health conscious and have tried just about every protein powder on the market. Some were OK, most were not. I was pretty skeptical about the claim that your egg whites don’t have a taste. My first drink was the pure egg whites and I have to be honest they weren’t bad, but they weren’t good either. I never intended on drinking them by themselves though, so I wasn’t put off. My next drink was in a shake and your claims are true. I did not taste the eggs one bit. They really are fantastic. Although they are more pricey than protein powders, they are well worth it.

Shake Recipe (Can’t get much healthier): – 8 oz Egg Whites
– 1 cup Frozen Organic Blueberries/Blackberries/Raspberries
– 1 cup Organic Plain Probiotic Yogurt Fat Free
– 1 tblsp Omega 3 Oil

“I have been an avid ‘jogger’ for a lot of years. Two years ago I decided to try a marathon. I have been hooked ever since. After my long runs I noticed I would have lots of soreness. I have had three knee surgeries and as long as I keep my weight down, don’t have problems, but my recovery time from my long runs was brutal. My oldest child is 23 and ever since that pregnancy I have never been able to eat red meat. Because I am a horrible cook I would be lucky to eat anything at all.

I had to start physical therapy for a car accident and the physical therapist asked me about my protein intake. I had just come from the San Antonio Marathon and had ordered my first batch of “Egg Whites International”. I started my routine with 4 pumps of egg whites with soy milk in the morning and the same in the evening. I drink low fat chocolate soy milk and with the protein it tastes like a milk shake, without all the calories. I quickly noticed a difference in my skin and hair and I recovered quite quickly from the accident. The PT told me it was the increase in protein that made all the difference.

When I began to run again, I noticed much quicker recovery time and just all over better health. I am a petite person and always wore a size 4 or 6. Since I started with the protein I seem to snack less and have lots more energy. I am able to run longer and more often. My body has changed quite a bit. I have not lost one pound but now am a perfect size 0. It really helps my knees to stay thin.

I thought it would difficult to drink the egg whites, but with no taste and my chocolate milk, it’s as if I’m having a snack. I think this is one of the best things I’ve ever done for my health and would highly recommend it for anyone who doesn’t get enough protein in their diet. Now I don’t worry when I skip meals and such. I am such a poor eater, but I never get sick. I am healthier than I’ve ever been.” – – Melissa Bautista / Marathon Athlete


“This product is simply a superior protein source. The pure, natural protein content and nutritional profile is hard to beat. My expectations were overwhelmingly exceeded. Convenience and variety are key when it comes to protein supplementation. I have been using this product avidly since my very first order, and have introduced it to many friends and family as well. Put your skeptical doubts aside and place your order. You will be glad that you did.” – – Sandesh K. Singh, M.D.


“We started using Egg Whites International for my 2 yr old son who has multiple eating (or lack of eating) problems and had great success with him so we decided to also give the your liquid egg whites to my 4 yr old daughter who had night terrors on a fairly regular basis which doctors could not explain. Immediately her night terrors stopped. My daughter now sleeps through the night and wakes up happy and this has been consistent ever since we started supplementing her diet with Egg Whites International.

In addition, my son who is allergic to the “crack your own eggs” has no problem with Eggwhites International at all. Both my children are healthier by adding this product to their drinks. As a mom I have peace of mind knowing my children are using a safe and beneficial supplement to their diets. Thank you Egg Whites International !” – – Karen Colasuonno / Customer

“In June 2009, my son Timothy was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis (CF). At the time, he was 4 months shy of his third birthday. Over the next several months, my wife and I learned as much as we could about this horrible disease. CF is a genetic disease that affects not only pulmonary (lung) function but in many cases, affects the bodies’ ability to absorb nutrients from food. In particular, pancreatic enzymes do not enter the intestines to help break down food. As such, many CF patients have difficulty gaining and maintaining body weight, even though they take enzymes with meals to help them with their nutrient intake. Additionally, we learned that maintaining a healthy weight had a direct affect on the pulmonary function of CF patients. Armed with this knowledge, we were more determined than ever to make sure Timothy gained weight. In our case, Timothy’s CF doctors were recommending that he take in 2000 calories a day.

Timothy did a fairly good job of maintaining his weight throughout the summer and fall. However, in November 2009, he became sick and lost 3 pounds in 3 days. While this does not seem like much, it was nearly 10% of his overall body weight. With the help of numerous doses of antibiotics, he was able to overcome his sickness, but was left at about 33 pounds at Christmas. Throughout January and February 2010, we gave him as much food and weight gain supplements (usually high calorie children’s shakes) as we could get him to consume. During this time, he was able to gain back just one pound, leaving him at 34 pounds.

In early March, he was hospitalized for 3 days with a respiratory infection. Although he was sick, the ability to take intravenous antibiotics allowed him to not become as sick. As such, he did not lose any weight during his hospitalization. During this time, a friend of mine mentioned that he had begun using liquid egg whites from Egg Whites International. He thought that it might help Timothy to gain weight. I immediately bought them and began to use them the day he got home from the hospital. He typically takes in 1 to 1 ½ cups per day, usually in his cereal or milk.

After just two weeks, we returned to the doctor. Timothy had already gained 1 ½ pounds. The doctor was truly astonished and asked us what we were doing to gain weight. We were honestly able to say that the only change we had made was to introduce Egg Whites into his daily diet. The dietician was consulted and was extremely concerned about our feeding him egg whites. She stated that raw egg whites contained particles that would actually keep him from absorbing nutrients. We explained to her that the product we were using was pasteurized and homogenized. However, she had to look for herself, so she went to the Egg Whites International website while we remained in the examining room. She immediately came back and said that there was no problem with us continuing to feed it to Timothy as it was completely safe, but that she did not necessarily agree with us that it was the reason for his weight gain.

Last week, Timothy returned to the doctor for his regular quarterly checkup. We were truly astonished by his weight. During the three months that he had been eating egg whites from Egg Whites International, he gained 4 pounds – more than he gained all last year. We truly believe that his weight gain can be attributed to including egg whites in his daily diet. We have begun communicating this to others within the CF community and can only hope that others have the same great results that Timothy has seen!” – – Tim Allen / Customer and Timothy’s dad


“Good afternoon JD – Thanks for your time on the phone today, I really appreciate it. It is not often enough that we find something in our lives that can truly change it for the better… but that is exactly what Egg Whites International did for me, and continues to do.

I was misdiagnosed with IBS for 6 years but had extreme, Stage IV Endometriosis. I met you and Mac at the Natural Products Expo in Anaheim in 2007. Your liquid egg whites changed my life immediately. Not only did I lose weight (happy side effect) but I lost inches around my upper waist and rib cage (can you say bloat?) and I could eat again. I had to give up dairy and had to add more protein to my diet and every supplement I tried made me uncomfortable or didn’t taste good. I started cooking with your liquid egg whites and added 2 or 3 pumps to my smoothie every day, sometimes 2x a day. You changed my life and the lives of many of my friends, clients, and even strangers that I’ve met.” Sincerely, – – Michelle Mullen / Customer

b) Adding Grass-Fed Meats, including  Buffalo

Reducing Omega 6’s consumption are key to helping Ulcerative Colitis….

Did you know that increasing Omega 3’s and reducing consumption of Omega 6’s is key to reducing inflammation, and therefore helping Ulcerative Colitis, Crohn’s Disease, Arthritis, and many other inflammatory diseases?

How can you increase your Omega 3’s and at the same time reduce your Omega 6’s consumption?

– – By adding Grass-Fed Meats, because research has shown that keeping a healthy ratio of Omega 3 to Omega 6’s ( which is close to 1:1) reduces or hinders inflammation within the body and that makes you healthier because inflammation is the under-lying cause of most disease.

Did you know that Grain-Fed Meats have a very unhealthy ratio of Omega 3 to Omega 6’s of 1:20 – and THIS wreaks inflammation throughout your body in the form of Ulcerative Colitis, Crohn’s, Fibromyalgia, Arthritis, Reactive Arthritis, Heart Disease, and numerous other diseases?
Grass fed animals are key to keeping this Omega 3 to Omega 6 ratio at a healthy 1:1. Native grasses are loaded with Omega-3’s and are found in abundance in grass-fed buffalo. The Nutritional benefits of a diet high in omega-3’s include; cancer prevention, lowering of cholesterol, and reducing inflammation.








Rarely is something that tastes so good actually good for you. Buffalo meat is the perfect way to enjoy all the advantages of beef without the guilty negatives. Buffalo meat is America’s healthy red meat — the one your taste buds can enjoy and allow your brain and body to feel good about it!

Unlike other so-called exotic meats, buffalo does not have that “gamey” taste. Rather, it has a full, rich, juicy flavor that is often characterized as sweet despite its low fat content. Many people characterize the flavor as like the best grass-fed beef they have ever tasted, but appreciate that buffalo meat is a healthier choice.

The nutritional benefits of Grass-fed Bison meat are many fold. They include:

  • Grass-fed Bison meat is naturally leaner, which means lower in calories, with only 245 calories and 4.2 grams of fat per 6 oz. serving.
  • Grass-fed Bison meat is naturally 85-90% lean and is lower in calories, fat and cholesterol than skinless chicken, pork, beef or salmon.
  •  Grass-fed Bison meat is lower in “bad” saturated fat and higher in “good fat” or omega-3 fatty acids. Up to sixty percent of the fatty acid content in the grasses on the great plains contain omega-3 and are found in abundance in buffalo allowed to graze on native grasses, which is 3.5 times more omega-3s then grain fed bison.
  • The benefits from a diet rich in omega-3 fatty acids include: cancer prevention, lowering cholesterol, as well as reducing inflammation.
  • Grass-fed bison meat has a greater concentration of iron, as well as other essential nutrients.
  • Grass-fed bison meat can contain up to four times as much vitamin E than feedlot meat. This potent antioxidant has been shown to lower the risk of heart disease, cancer and Alzheimer’s disease.
  • Grass-fed bison meat is a highly nutrient dense food and….. it’s delicious!
  •  Grass-fed bison meat is naturally gluten-free and MSG-free (Whole cut meat only, such as steaks, roasts, ribs and burgers. Processed meats such as jerky, hot dogs, brats, etc. may have trace detectable amounts.)BUFFALO VS. BEEF
    Buffalo meat is much healthier than beef. It fits right in with a healthy, active lifestyle and because it has less fat than beef, is better at helping you control a healthy weight.

Depending on the cut, buffalo is…

  • 60-80% lower in fat with up to half the calories of beef
  • Higher in protein, vitamin B and iron, and lower in cholesterol
  • Sweeter and juicier, with a fresh, non-greasy taste
  • Much more tender with a deeper red color and less marbling
  •  Faster to cook (due to lower fat), and should be cooked at a lower temperature
  •  More meat per ounce after cooking, as it doesn’t shrink as much as beef does

Premium Meat

The Dakota Buffalo Company’s  buffalo meat comes from one of the largest and most trusted processors in the United States. Family-owned and operated, they have specialized in buffalo meat for more than 20 years and are a leading supplier to restaurants, markets, sporting venues and stadiums around the country. They own their own buffalo herd and also contract with specially chosen ranchers who believe in sustainable ranching practices. What’s more, their efficient packaging process keeps the meat fresher because it is cut, vacuum shrink-wrapped, frozen and freezer-stored — all within minutes.

Today, we know that the bison is considered a highly nutrient dense food (the proportion of protein, fat, minerals and fatty acids are high when compared to its caloric value.) When compared to other animals from a feed lot, the bison have a greater concentration of iron as well as other essential nutrients. The meat from grass-fed bison can contain up to four times as much vitamin E as feedlot cattle. This potent antioxidant has been shown to lower the risk of heart disease, cancer and Alzheimer’s disease.

The fat content in bison meat is usually a third of that found in cattle fattened in the feedlot. Because the meat is lower in fat also means that it is lower in calories. A 6 oz buffalo steak can have as much as 100 fewer calories than a steak from a grain fed steer. You could loose up to 10 pounds a year just by switching your main source of meat to grass fed buffalo.

Bison is also high in omega-3 fat. Up to sixty percent of the fatty acid content in the grasses on the plains contain omega-3 and are found in abundance in buffalo allowed to graze on the natural grasses. The benefits from a diet rich in omega-3 fatty acids can not be overstated. These benefits include cancer prevention to lowering cholesterol as well as reducing inflammation.”  – – Dr. Kevin Weiland




“It is important to me that the meat and eggs I prepare for my family are locally sourced and free of hormones, antibiotics, and preservatives. The Fossil Farms shop offers a wide variety of other kitchen ingredients — herbs, spices, salts, oils, plus cheese and jerky. The staff is knowledgeable, helpful, and friendly.”

– Carrie S / Boonton, NJ

– Lisa L / California


“As one who recently learned about the real health benefits of lean and healthy meats, Fossil Farms is my new “go to.” Not to mention how much more I have learned about different meats and dishes.”

Products I Can’t Live Without…






For those of us that must have some form of starch, carb, or pasta, I’ve come across a pretty rare and secret “carb” which looks, taste, and feels like a carb, but is ISN’T. What’s secret about it is that it is actually a naturally water soluble fiber called Glucomannan which is GLUTEN and WHEAT FREE, and Tofu Free too. It’s even been featured on the Rachel Ray Show and numerous magazines like Men’s Health and Shape as well. You can add them to soups, cook them like pasta and add tomato sauce, or put all kinds of herbs on them as you pan fry them. They’re delicious and very satisfying. The secret to using these noodles is to drain them of all liquid they come packed with, and rinse them a few times very well in cold water, and use a paper towel to dry them with before cooking them. It’s worth the try, you’ll see. Whatever you cook them in, they will absorb those flavorings. And the best part of it is that you can finally have your pasta without getting sick from the gluten, wheat, or soy.


“I just traveled across two states (not as crazy as it sounds my family lives there) and purchased the Miracle noodles in a gluten free health store. I was concerned about purchasing a large amount off the website. I AM NOT CONCERNED ANYMORE!!! They are AWESOME. My mother in law even tasted them and liked them and she does not like anything. Believe me when I say that. I am so excited to try the other varieties. Thank you Miracle Noodle.” — Mary

“I love the noodles! I can’t have gluten or wheat and the rice noodles are discusting. I am so glad I found you! Have you thought of selling to gluten free companies? You Should!” — Stephen

“I just want to say that I am beyond delighted that I found your product online. I love pasta and have found it difficult to get back on my low carb plan because. Thanks. I am going to try your product.” – – Debbie

“These are the BEST! Now I can once again eat Italian without eating gluten!!! This is a miracle!! Rice noodles, and quinoa are okay, but your noodles have great texture and with no actual taste, it is just the sauce and meatballs and veggies! Yum! and THANK YOU! – – Gail

Love your noodles. It’s a great source of fiber which helps control my IBS symptoms. And, I make an awesome noodle pudding that my whole family loves, which may I add is totally guilt free in eating. Love it, Love it, can’t live without it!! P.S. – I’ve looked for other Shirataki Noodles but they all seem to have tofu in them. I’m not supposed to eat tofu due to my bout with BC.” – – Kathy

“I am very impressed with the noodles. So far I have added them to homemade vegetable soup and used with Marinara sauce, both were great tasting and very filling. I find that I don’t want more than a half a package at the most in a day. and I am not as hungry the rest of the day and in the evening. A great product and no problems with the many food allergies that I have.” – – Sincerely, JoAnn

“Thanks for a great product! Our family has Celiac Disease & food allergy issues & Miracle Noodles really are a miracle for us! We are just getting going w/ the product! I tried the Angel Hair and just Love It. I have turned on co-workers to your products. I’m getting ready to purchase more and want to know which one is the thicker noodle (speghetti-type). I’m Italian and pasta is very important to me. I would eat it everyday if I could, but the Carbs/Calories stop me, but with your noodles I can have them whenever I want. It has satisfied my craving for Pasta without the guilt! Thank You again.!” – – Thank you, Julie

“I have been a customer for about a year now, and I love substituting your product for high carb pasta.” – – Gwen, New Marshfield, Ohio

Products I Can’t Live Without…

Reactive Arthritis?

What can you do about Reactive Arthritis?

When I got the Ulcerative Colitis, it came with the Reactive Arthritis, which many people unfortunately get. I’ve tried so many different supplements and remedies, and none have given me relief from the painful joint pains I’ve had to endure.

Until now that is. I’ve found JointEase Plus to reduce the joint pains significantly.

What is JointEase Plus?

JointEase Plus is a 100% natural remedy containing both herbal and dietary supplements especially chosen for joint and cartilage health. Regular use will help to maintain health and mobility in the muscular skeletal system without the risk of side effects.

  • Freedom to move

Joints are the areas where two bones meet such as the knee, hip, shoulder, elbow or even the small joints of the fingers, toes, neck and vertebra. Joints allow our bodies to move in many different ways – to bend and be flexible, as well as to perform everyday routine tasks, like walking, sitting, writing and even turning our heads to see where we are going. Without our joints, our skeletons would be stiff and inflexible and life as we know it would be virtually impossible!

All joints are cushioned by a substance called cartilage. Cartilage acts as a ‘shock absorber’ to prevent the bones in our joints from grinding together and wearing down. There is also a certain amount of fluid present in joints to keep them well-oiled and free moving.

  • The natural way

In the course of every day activities, our joints are subject to a great deal of strain and stress. While they are designed to cope with this, it also makes sense to do all we can to keep our joints in tip top form and to support joint health and movement. The best way to do this is to maintain a healthy lifestyle, including a diet high in essential nutrients and low in processed foods, additives and sugar.

Avoid excessive caffeine which can leach nutrients from the body. Regular moderate exercise rather than sudden bouts of activity will also help to keep joints in good shape. Choose joint friendly exercise like swimming and yoga and practice stretching exercises to warm up muscles rather than putting strain on the joints.

Natural remedies have been used for hundreds of years in traditional medicine to support joint and muscle health and to keep joints moving as they should.


How has JointEase Plus helped others?

Pat came to see me after her husband had died. She was in her late 50’s and had been looking forward to spending her retirement with her husband. Pat told me that she saw little reason to continue living without her husband, and said that she found it very difficult to complete even her daily household tasks, let alone get out for enjoyment. She felt permanently exhausted and she did not see how she was going to be able to cope. However, she agreed to come and see me for a period of 3 months. In addition to grief counseling, I advised Pat to take JointEase Plus, which has proved to be of great benefit in providing natural joint support to many of my patients. Over the next few months, it was wonderful to see how Pat looked younger and stronger. She developed a spring in her step and felt much more able to cope with her daily life. I persuaded Pat to join a ‘Walk for Life’ group, in order to give herself some additional exercise and also to meet new people. At the end of 3 months, we terminated therapy as Pat felt that she was once more able to look forward to life. She still missed her husband dreadfully, but now had a busy social life and for the first time in many years, was able to go about her day without problems. ”—Michele Carelse, Clinical Psychologist

I am 69 and I took JointEase Plus quite skeptically after it was recommended by a friend, because I have not had much experience with herbal products. After 3 – 4 weeks I could really feel the difference. Now about three months later I am taking a half dose and am (feeling great) … My compliments on a very effective product …I am walking proof that it works!” —Frank C.

“JointEase Plus has saved my life! I can …begin to enjoy life again. To me it is unbelievable and I simply cannot thank you and your team enough!!!!!” —Jennifer B.

“I am a Doctor of Oriental Medicine and. I have tried dozens of formulas over the years. My wife found your website and ordered JointEase Plus without telling me. I agreed to try it and to my great surprise in 3 days at two pills twice a day I felt WONDERFUL …This formula is FABULOUS! I cannot praise it enough! Thank you!” —Stuart M., TX

 Anus Inflammation

What can you do when your Anus is inflamed and feels like it’s on fire?

There are few things that are worse than having
your anus feeling like it’s on fire – terrible burning

from being raw (which could be the result of using
the wrong commercial toilet paper, or just having a bout of diarrhea). This could alsobe associated with endless
uncomfortable itching.

And finally if it recurs enough, you could
be suffering from anal  fissures.

A few weeks ago, I received a
call from my Aunt, who was going
through an unusually bad bout of
painful Anal Fissure. She was
in terrible pain, and didn’t know
what to do.

Then I remembered I had a new product I was going to
be using as a “trial”, which took care of this exact problem! “Would you like to try it?” I asked her.

After the first application, she
felt alot better. No more fire!
And for the next few weeks,

she followed directions and
continued applying it… and
sure enough the stubborn
fissure was healing well.
She called me 
ecstatic, that
I had given her a product that
worked like no other!

And she finally had her life back!


My God, this is a wonderful
and amazingly effective

Since then, I have suggested this same
product to a few clients suffering from
anal itching and burning, and they’ve been
thrilled with its results!

“Over the last few years, the Pranicure Treatment has proven to be the most successful treatment for chronic anal itching, pruritus ani and anal fissures ever created.  And it’s not even close.  Over 98% of sufferers get relief and resume a normal life.  Most other therapies/ointments are lucky to hit 10%.  People who have suffered an unimaginable 10, 20 and even 40+ years have finally found success.


The Pranicure Treatment is a true breakthrough in treating these awful afflictions.  (Read here for over 500 reviews)

Unfortunately, as many of us with IBD, UC, and Crohn’s have had a flare-up besides struggling with all the other symptoms, it’s quite painful to have to endure an inflamed Anus that feels like it’s on fire. It gets inflamed as part of the disease process, and because of the overall inflammation in your body due to
your UC, Crohns, and IBD, which can create terrible  burning, itching, and “rawness” of the Anus.


You may also be suffering from Anal Fissures,

which are almost impossible to heal.


“We don’t consider chronic anal itching, agonizing anal fissures, and Pruritus Ani to be a minor inconvenience. No one understands what the severe sufferer is going through unless they’ve lived it. And we’ve lived it. We feel for you and literally know your pain. We used to suffer just like you. If you’ve been to the doctor and everything they have done and prescribed for you hasn’t worked… then you are just like us. Wake up at night scratching and unable to sleep? Been there. Jumping around on your chair at work because of the severe anal itch or pain? Done that. Bleeding through your trousers from open wounds and fissures? Just a normal day. Been so frustrated, filled with anxiety and sleep deprivation that you need anti-depressants to be able to deal with it?  We’ve experienced all of this as well.


“We are The Pranicure Group, and all of us were multi-year severe sufferers who were unable to be helped by doctors. We have been researching and looking for a cure since 2010. We’ve literally tried hundreds of different remedies (as well as a multitude of different combinations of those remedies). We’ve spent years trying diets, abstaining from foods, and experimenting with homeopathic herbs and ointments. We’ve tried just about everything you can imagine: supplements, probiotics, prescription creams, online and over the counter ointments, water sprayers, hemorrhoid surgeries, methylene blue injections, Botox injections… you name it, we’ve most likely tried it.

We honestly believe that after going through all of this trial and error, we know more about how to bring relief to those suffering from severe Pruritus Ani, chronic anal itching and painful anal fissures than almost anyone on the planet.

Severe Pruritus Ani is usually accompanied by chronic, intense anal itching as well as painful anal fissures. You may or may not have all three, but in order to effectively bring relief to the severe Pruritus Ani sufferer, we had to come up with a single, effective treatment for all of these tough-to-treat afflictions. So please note that when we say “Pruritus Ani” in further reading, we really mean the combination of Pruritus Ani, anal itching and anal fissures.

“Typically, sufferers are given prescription ointments that work for a week or two and then when they fail, doctors have nothing left in their bag of healing and hand out a pamphlet with a few dozen or so things for their patients to try. If you’re like us, we tried every suggestion on that pamphlet and nothing worked. We thought there just had to be a single, effective treatment that all of us could follow… and we were determined to find one. It took years (from 2010 thru 2013) but we finally found success in bringing relief to ourselves, as well as to several thousand chronic sufferers around the world.

You can save yourself years of frustration and follow our advice, or go at it alone and repeat everything we’ve already done. We’ve helped bring relief to the worst of the worst… people who have suffered an unimaginable 10, 20 and even 30+ years. Even if you’ve suffered for years… and have been to countless doctor’s appointments… and think you’ve tried every remedy known to man… we absolutely still believe we can help you, because we were there too. We were at our wits’ end. We know what you are going through… and we beat it.

Read what hundreds of real customers have to say about how Pranicure changed their lives!






“Pruritus Ani is a medical term for “we don’t know what is causing the problems in and around your anus”.

It’s a diagnosis catch-all for what may be open sores, rashy, irritated-looking skin, chronic anal itching, anal pain, and anal fissures. If the doctor is unable to help, what is a person to do? You scour the world for information, and hopefully find something that works and gives you a normal life back. That’s what we did, The Pranicure Group, and that’s why you are here today: because the doctor didn’t have an answer for you.


NOTE: If you haven’t been to the doctor, then you NEED to go see one. We are not anti-doctor: quite the contrary. They have answers and cures for many anal and skin conditions. You need to see your doctor until he/she tells you that they don’t know what is causing your anal problem, and they have ruled out anything serious. However, once they hand you a pamphlet or give you the diagnosis, “Pruritus Ani” (or, “we have no idea what to do for you”), that’s when you are ready to follow our advice.


“Dr. David B. Rosenfeld (in his online article, “Pruritus Ani (Anal Itching)”) says: “Anal itching, or Pruritus Ani, has many causes, but the most common cause is unknown.” But you still must see your doctor first, to rule out any known problems that they CAN fix.


“Let’s assume the unfortunate idiopathic Pruritus Ani diagnosis and they have no idea what is causing it. Our research is leading us to believe the cause is internal. Something appears to be going wrong temporarily (or permanently) in the stomach/intestines, which produces something in your stool or rectum, which, when it comes into contact with your anal/perianal skin, causes itching. The ASCRS says (and we agree), “It is believed that an irritating secretion from the anal canal may cause the itching.. other potential causes of irritation include moisture from sweat, stool, and mucus.” Then you scratch and scratch and damage the skin, sometimes creating a rash-like oozing skin problem, or sores, or anal tears called “fissures”. As you probably know, damaged or burned skin produces moisture to heal itself. (A scab is dried wound moisture.) But down there, it never scabs over and keeps producing moisture which causes the itching to get even worse. You get stuck in a never ending itch/scratch cycle. Your bottom, whether you know it or not, has damaged skin and needs to heal. However, it won’t heal if you keep scratching… BUT “not scratching” is ridiculous advice that cannot be followed, as it just itches too much, and you have to scratch! It’s a horrible cycle to be in. It’s a life changing cycle for severe sufferers, most of whom wake themselves up every night scratching. And then lack of sleep leads to a multitude of additional problems. In the worst cases, it ruins your life. That was us, The Pranicure Group. But we finally beat it…

“Our patent-pending Pranicure Treatment was able to achieve success in breaking the cycle. It allows us to have a normal life. We can sleep through the night and only have to apply an ointment once in a while to live life without itching or pain.


We agree with the ASCRS in their article “Pruritus Ani” that “The goal of therapy is to restore clean, dry, and intact skin.” Our Pranicure Treatment accomplishes this goal.

Right out of the gate most ointments fail because the goal is clean, DRY, intact skin. There is nothing DRY about petrolatum, the base ingredient found in most ointments. Our research found that you never want to use anything that contains a lot of petrolatum/petroleum jelly/Vaseline. Unfortunately that ingredient is in almost every ointment! Through trial and error, we were unable to find a single product that worked long term on the serious sufferer and we realized that we had to invent the ointment that had all of the features we needed. Nothing had the combination of drying, soothing, yet difficult to remove moisture barrier and anti-itch qualities that is required. Pranicure (available for purchase on this website) with its patent pending formula, is the only ointment we tested that worked for all of us in The Pranicure Group.

Because it was invented by severe Pruritus Ani sufferers, and has now successfully been used around the globe by over 6000 people since 2013, there is absolutely no question that it works. Pranicure contains skin drying ingredients, antibacterial ingredients, skin soothing ingredients and anti-itch ingredients. It has the right amount of moisture (which is critical) and just may be the best skin barrier available to keep fecal matter and discharge off of the anal and perianal skin. And because of its soothing properties for skin, and ability to work in a moist environment, it helps heal anal fissures and keep them from re-occurring. In addition, Pranicure does not contain cortisone or any steroids that are not safe to be used long term. (Click on the “Pranicure Ingredients” tab at the top of the home page for a full list of ingredients.)

Pranicure was invented by us… serious multi-year sufferers. We know it works. It’s proven to work. There is nothing better. We know chronic anal itching, severe Pruritus Ani and anal fissures like no one else. We’ve helped some of the most severe long term sufferers get relief… Read the Pranicure reviews here and search us on the web. Feel free to email us any questions at any time at


This is a  wonderful inexpensive, and very effective product to have in your bag, in your desk, at your home, especially if you have IBD, UC, or Crohn’s.





MIRACLE 5 Star Review

Posted by Lisa *Pranicure results will vary* on 3rd Apr 2017

“I remember distinctly the first time I felt that little tingly
itch after a bowel movement 7 years ago. Thought I
was developing a hemorrhoid as I stand on my feet
all day with work and was getting closer to age 50.
Well, it got worse and worse and I used EVERY
imaginable treatment from witch hazel and aloe, to
Recticare. I had stabbing needle-like pains at night

that would wake me up. I honestly thought I was doomed

for eternity. 3 days ago I got this “miracle in a jar”.
There are no words to describe its effectiveness
but a miracle. I studied the ingredients as I’m into
more natural healing, and the zinc oxide, menthol
and thymol are well documented healing agents.
I cannot thank the makers of this product enough.
I would have paid $1000 for relief. The cost of this
product is MORE than reasonable. Don’t hesitate.”



I have suffered chronically for around 2 years. In April I ordered Pranicure and haven’t looked back…”


Amazing product! Gave me my life back!! Highly recommend it!!



For about four years I suffered from an intolerable itch and nothing would take it away. I’m not cured, but I went from it being the focus of my life to nearly forgetting I itch…”



Works great! What a relief!”





Posted by L.S. *Pranicure results will vary* on 27th Mar 2017

“Dear Pranicure,
I’ve used your product for about 6 weeks. I want to
report that I am completely healed and no longer suffer.
Your product is amazing! 45 years I’ve suffered with this.
What a relief. Thank you. I was 20 years old and in
university when this started. This was the last thing
I needed to deal with at that age. I went to doctors who
had no idea what to do and worse than that, they had
no apparent interest either. I could go on about the
torment I had to deal with but I would be telling you

what you already know. You people are a Godsend.”



Posted by n/a *Pranicure results will vary* on 19th Mar 2017

“I purchased first jar of Pranicure over a year ago
and second one about 3 months ago(have hardly
used any from that jar). I had tried hundreds of products,
some which made the condition much worse…..Pranicure
helped the burning and itching pain almost immediately
and by following the instructions religiously I found I
needed to use it less frequently.
I feel my skin is completely healed……what a wonderful relief,
but I am keeping my Pranicure close by in case there is ever
another flare up. I had the condition for so long, it has been
about 1 1/2 years to this point, but how good to be free of
the discomfort! I highly recommend Pranicure, but
please be patient and follow the directions.”




Posted by Dan P. *Pranicure results will vary* on 10th Mar 2017

“After having surgery a few years ago, I have had
recurring problems with anal fissures and itching.
I’ve seen several doctors including specialist and
tried numerous prescription treatments with little
to no success. I first tried Pranicure about a year ago
after reading customer reviews about it online and
thought it was worth trying. It was the best decision
I could have made because this stuff really works!
Now whenever I have a flare up, I follow the directions
and within a week my condition is cleared up and I
have relief that lasts longer than any other treatment
I’ve tried. I almost never participate in reviews but this
product is truly exceptional and deserves its recognition.
If you are on the fence, my advice is to stop thinking.
You will not be disappointed. Thank you for a great product!”



Posted by Fahim N. *Pranicure Results will vary* on 27th Feb 2017

“I am in tears while writing this review about this impressive product.
1 year ago I got chronic diarrhea that caused a fissure.
Every bowel movement was a nightmare for me.
The burning pain was so bad and it remained for 5-6 hours
after every bowel movement. It was not itching at first,
but after some months the itch also started, mostly at
night while sleeping. I was really frustrated with what
was happening to me. I was hopeless. Many times
I cried. I tried everything. Ointments, medications.
Even two surgeons said that surgery is a must for heal up.
I was scared of surgery and wanted to avoid it if possible.
I searched a lot about fissure treatment on the internet,
and one day I found a review about Pranicure on a
medical forum. I ordered it online. I applied it two times
a day at first. Once after bowel movement in the
morning and then before sleeping. Can you believe it guys?
After many days I did not wake up in the night because of itching.
OMG! Impressive!! And now I am fissure free! I am healed.
Thank God. Thanks so much to the Pranicure team for
this Incredible invention. You gave me my life back guys.
Much appreciation to you. Regards and Love.”

The skin surrounding the anus is particularly sensitive. Sometimes this can then make the simple task of sitting on a hard surface or the more difficult task of passing hardened stool extremely uncomfortable.

Circulatory health in the anal area, both internal and external, may be influenced by our sedentary lifestyles as well as an unhealthy diet, lack of dietary fiber and insufficient water on a daily basis. This can lead to straining and pressure on the anal area when passing a stool – thus placing stress on the blood vessels in the area.

The anal area is subject to multiple pressures in the normal course of living – sitting on hard surfaces while maintaining our body weight, as well as the stress of downward exertion when passing a bowel movement. Maintaining the health and integrity of this sensitive area is therefore very important.

The natural way

Following a healthy diet can go a long way to prevent constipation, encourage soft, regular stools and to support skin and blood vessel health in the most vulnerable places.

Exercising regularly and drinking plenty of water will help to hydrate the skin and promote circulation, while added fiber in your diet can help to keep you ‘regular’ and loosen stools for easy elimination through the anal passage.

Rather than treating problems in isolation, Naturopaths prefer to take a holistic look at the individual. Natural remedies have been used in traditional medicine for thousands of years to promote healthy circulation and encourage skin health. In more recent times, research has confirmed this traditional wisdom.




“Pranicure is a steroid-free ointment intended for even the most severe pruritus ani symptoms. Each ingredient plays a unique role in combating this sensitive and extremely difficult to treat condition. No other product contains ALL of the ingredients in Pranicure. It is a patent pending, one of a kind, non-prescription formulation. All of the ingredients in Pranicure * are currently being used safely in many over-the-counter (OTC) products by people on a daily basis. Pranicure does NOT contain steroids, cortisone, or any other ingredient that can thin the skin or has been proven to be unsafe to use for long periods of time. Pranicure can be safely used on a long term daily basis (if needed).

After testing most every existing treatment for pruritus ani and anal fissures (both prescription and non-prescription) with ZERO long term success, the creators of Pranicure knew they had to come up with a different solution. It took years, but after much trial and error, Pranicure ointment was born in 2013. It’s brought relief to people who have suffered for 20, 30 and even 40+ years.

Read the Pranicure Treatment reviews here

The FDA (Federal Drug Administration) of the United States allows manufacturers to use OTC ingredients in certain concentrations and combinations without having to go through the many years of testing that new prescription drugs must go through to be proven safe and effective. The FDA has developed what they call “monographs” which are approved “recipes and active ingredients” for different types of afflictions. (Pranicure falls within the monograph for anal ointments.) As long as a manufacturer stays within the monograph guidelines, the final product is approved and can be sold to the public. Basically, once an ingredient (for example zinc oxide or menthol) has been proven safe, then future manufacturers can use these ingredients without “re-proving” safety or effectiveness. Only NEW drugs must be individually inspected and approved by the FDA. Click here to see the FDA website which explains the “OTC drug approval” through their monograph system.

 Hair Loss

What can you do about Hair Loss due to Ulcerative Colitis?

There are countless men and women suffering from hair loss due to health conditions such as Ulcerative Colitis and Crohn’s Disease, whether it is a result of side effects from Prednisone or the Mesalamines, or even and most often from the direct result of malabsorption of nutrients, and this hair loss only serves to add to the stress of having to deal with this disease. Are you experiencing problems with hair loss and have been looking for the right hair growth product?

I use a 2 step approach: I use a natural supplement called Gelatinized MACA Root Powder and ReGrow Plus supplements to give it the 1-2 punch.

Step 2: Special Supplementation for your Hair

I use ReGrow Plus.

What is ReGrow Plus?

ReGrow Plus is a blend of carefully chosen herbal ingredients known for their supportive capacity to promote healthy circulation, routine hormonal balance and support healthy thyroid functioning – thereby supporting healthy hair and nail growth.

Used regularly, ReGrow Plus can help to maintain healthy, strong hair by supporting the body’s natural ability to stimulate and nourish the tiny hair follicles to produce abundant hair.


Hair today, gone tomorrow

Most of us take the process of hair growth for granted. It is such a microscopic and imperceptible occurrence that we tend to go months before deciding we need a haircut.

What we see and brush as hair is actually the hair shaft, which is the keratinized, hardened tissue that grows from this follicle.

The thicker, fully pigmented hair most people consider “real hair” is found on the scalp, eyebrows, legs, backs, underarms, and genital areas. Everyone’s hair grows differently, depending on age, weight, metabolism, hormones, ethnicity, medications, and other factors.

All hair goes through three distinct growth phases:

The first is the active growth phase or anagen phase, lasting several years. At any given time, 85% of our body hair is in this first phase where our hair has an abundance of melanin.

The second phase is called the regressive phase or catagen phase, lasting on average only two weeks, during which the hair stops growing but is not shed. Only 3 – 4% of our body hair is in this phase at any given time.

Lastly comes the resting phase or telogen phase, lasting 5 – 6 weeks, after which the hair falls out of the follicle and a new hair begins to form. 10-13% of our body hair is in this phase at any one time. Unfortunately, as we age, it is common for a natural process of hair loss to begin…

The natural way

There is a lot that can be done to help promote hair strength and vitality in the comfort of your own home. Scientists have found a link between smoking and hair loss – another reason to quit! Always comb through wet hair gently with a comb and not a brush.

To work through hair knots, start at the outer tip and gently work the knot out towards the top. Towel-drying excess water off before combing will also help to put less pressure on the hair shaft. Avoid harsh hair chemicals or heat from hair dryers or heated rollers.

For women, who prefer to sleep with their hair tied up, fabric covered elastics should be used, as plain elastic hair bands can lead to hair breakage and put added structural stress on the hair follicle. Always tie hair up loosely, as a tight style can lead to added hair loss.

It’s also a good idea to protect your hair from the sun by using a hat. A healthy balanced diet with lots of fresh fruit and raw vegetables is also a great way of promoting healthy, strong hair. Make sure you have sufficient (not too much!) vitamin A and a good vitamin B complex. Zinc and copper are important trace elements to promote healthy hair growth.

Unfortunately, today’s modern lifestyle is filled with fast food (including excess sugar and fat) and essential nutrients and vitamins are not always guaranteed, making dietary supplements a must for challenged hair!


“I am a woman who drew a bad hair gene from my mother’s side of the family. I started losing hair in my late 20s. For years, people’s eyes would be drawn upwards to the thinning spot at the top of my head. I’ve been using ReGrow Plus for 4 months now and the thinning spot is becoming less and less sparse. Now when people talk to me they look me in the eye.” —Sandra H.

“This took some time to take effect, but I felt definite improvement beginning from about three months. I have been using the remedy now for five months and I think my hair and nails are better than they have ever been for years! Thank you!” —Scott

“….People said appearance doesn’t matter but to me it does. I can recommend ReGrow Plus to anyone…” —Sherri B.

“This has been money well spent and believe me I have thrown good money after bad regarding my hair!” —Chris M.

“I take your Thyroid Assist to support my energy levels, but it didn’t do much for dry brittle hair and brittle nails. The ReGrow Plus is great – it supports my nail strength and my hair is finally growing. I cut it 2 years ago and it would not grow I took all kinds of vitamins, kelp, gelatin, for the last 2 years and noting worked. This did the trick for me and I am very happy. It is expensive for me, because I am on a budget, but your hair is an accessory you wear every day! …I am very weary shopper and educate myself on products– that is why I am leaving a testimonial from the others that have helped me. I hope this helps someone else and you have the kind of luck I have had! ” —Amy, AZ, USA

 Oral/Dental Health

What about Oral/Dental Health?


Many of us with IBD issues also have dental health and bad breath issues due to our gut flora being out of balance and it’s part of the IBD disease process.

What can you do naturally to control this?

I use EvoraPlus, and it works great!

Why and how does it work?

What if you could use an all natural probiotic for your mouth, which would freshen your breath, whiten your teeth, kill germs, make your gums healthier, make your dental care a breeze, and make your dentist really happy with you?
EvoraPlus is a revolutionary new application of probiotics , which have traditionally been used to support digestive and immune health. EvoraPlus is the first probiotic mint that contains the patented beneficial bacteria blend, ProBiora3® especifically designed for complete oral care. This all-in-one product supports gum and tooth health and naturally freshens breath while gently whitening teeth.

Research has shown that of the hundreds of strains of bacteria found in the human mouth, only a few are known to cause harm to the teeth and gums, and a few more are known to help maintain oral health. Many situations – including eating a diet high in sugar and other processed carbohydrates – cause these oral bacteria to become out of balance. After we eat sugars and processed carbohydrates, the harmful bacteria convert the carbohydrates and create the by-product lactic acid, which erodes the tooth’s protective enamel and affects the dentin within the tooth.

Daily use of EvoraPlus is a fast, easy and effective way to naturally promote oral health and economically replace mouthwashes, tooth whiteners and breath fresheners

How does it work?

  • Healthy gums and teeth

EvoraPlus® probiotic mints naturally support gum and tooth health with the powerful key ingredient of patented Probiora3® probiotics. These natural resident beneficial bacteria of healthy mouths set up a “base camp” in the mouth and crowd out the problematic, harmful bacteria.

  • Fresher breath

The key to beating bad breath is keeping the bad bacteria that inhabit the mouth in check. The blend of beneficial bacteria incorporated into EvoraPlus works to balance the population of the periodontal bacteria that create bad breath. By binding to the teeth and deep beneath the gum line, the beneficial bacteria work to inhibit and exclude the destructive bacteria from overpopulating and creating imbalances in the mouth.

  • Naturally whitens teeth

One of the most powerful and unique properties of the probiotic blend used in EvoraPlus is their ability to release a low level form of hydrogen peroxide as a normal by-product. The continuous low doses of hydrogen peroxide created by the Probiora3 blend of beneficial bacteria naturally whiten teeth without creating tooth sensitivity.

When EvoraPlus® melts on the tongue, the freeze-dried probiotics activate and attach themselves to the teeth and gum tissue, establishing colonies of live, active beneficial bacteria both on the surface of the teeth and deep beneath the gum line. These colonies compete for both nutrients and space with the harmful oral bacteria that disrupt gum and tooth health, as well as cause bad breath.
In the mouth, the harmful bacteria convert sugar and carbohydrates into lactic acid. Lactic acid is the bacterial by-product which is responsible for a decline in dental health. The Standard American Diet promotes the ongoing conversion to lactic acid by providing a constant source of simple carbohydrates for bacterial cell growth, thus creating a situation for even greater imbalance in oral microflora.

With daily replenishment, the ProBiora3® beneficial bacteria used in EvoraPlus® helps to reestablish the natural microbial balance in the mouth for healthy gums and teeth, fresher breath and whiter teeth.


I am a huge tooth nut. I’ve used EvoraPlus Probiotics before and really liked this product. They’ve improved EvoraPlus recently and it’s even better! EvoraPlus only needs to be taken once a day now, which is very convenient and the formula is mintier than ever. It’s very pleasant tasting and easy to use! Allowing one mint to dissolve on your tongue daily will help whiten your teeth, and eliminate bad breath and promote better tooth and gum health.” by Leslie

“I tried EvoraPlus out at that time and I loved it. Now EvoraPlus has introduced an improved version- it’s mintier and my favorite part about the new version (besides what it does) is that the packaging is more environmentally friendly!”  by Kandi

“Our entire family tested out the EvoraPlus probiotic mints. The flavor is very mild and I felt better giving one of these to Lily rather than “minty candy” she normally requests. We liked the delicate flavor and knowing we were using a natural whitening and probiotic product. I felt tempted to recommend these to some dragon-breathed strangers I recently encountered!”  by Aleksandra

“Do you whiten your teeth?? I had always considered it, but I have got such *sensitive* teeth that I worried that I would really hurt them with all those harsh chemicals. Well, I just recently got a chance to review Evora Plus, a new Probiotic mint that naturally freshens breath, supports healthy teeth and gums, and naturally whitens teeth. And, let me tell you I am PLEASED!! Not only have my teeth whitened at least a shade, but my mouth is feeling a lot healthier in general. Yippee!”  by Missy

“These little mints are an easy no fuss addition to my tooth cleaning routine. I just pop one in my mouth twice a day after brushing and flossing and it dissolves within seconds. I have only been taking EvoraPlus for a couple of weeks now so it is still a little too soon to see if my teeth will get any whiter but I am eager to see what the results will be. I also like knowing that unlike some products like mouth rinses that are temporary and topical in nature EvoraPlus stays with me the entire day so my teeth are continuously being cared for”.  by Monica

“The mints are 100% natural which is awesome and taste great too! They have a spearmint type flavor and melt in your mouth very quickly. As a nutritionist, I believe that probiotics are very important and these ones taste great too. They also freshen your breath, support gum and tooth health, and help to whiten teeth. The company says that their mints are the first probiotic mint made specifically for oral care! This mint helps maintain the good bacteria in your mouth to make it healthier!”  by Amanda, a Nutritionist

“Well I have completed my month of using EvoraPlus daily and am loving the results! For me the changes are mostly noticed by myself, but the fresher breath and healthier over all feeling of my teeth and mouth has restored my confidence to smile again. Using EvoraPlus is super easy, just take one of the tablets twice a day, and let each one simply dissolve in your mouth. EvoraPlus is an all natural solution to bad breath and dull teeth, and is much less intrusive than whitening strips and chemically infused mouth washes. 60 mints later and my teeth are now brighter and have much less of a yellow tinge to them. My oral health is also improved, with my breath much more under control due to the mints actually attacking the root problem instead of simply masking it like regular breath mints. For me the EvoraPlus mints were a nice subtle transition to healthier teeth and gums. The ‘mintiness’ of the mints was not quite as strong as traditional mints but it did leave my mouth feeling clean and refreshed.”  by Sarah

“I am always looking for new products to whiten my teeth and freshen my breath. Fresh breath and white teeth are very important to me. I often need to attend meetings and do not want to worry about yellow teeth or bad breath. The ProBiora3 blend of beneficial bacteria used in EvoraPlus can provide a deep impact by rebalancing the oral flora in a simple, painless, non-invasive daily routine. No other product has a non-invasive daily routine. No other product impacts oral health below the gum line to get to the root of the problem. EvoraPlus provides powerful beneficial bacteria that permeates beneath the gum line and can whiten your teeth and freshen your breath. It’s simple. Just brush your teeth and then afterwards let an EvoraPlus tablet dissolve on your tongue. I love it’s minty fresh taste.”  by Denise

“My teeth became overly sensitive and they even stripped my teeth of enamel in certain places. EvoraPlus is a probiotic that promotes gum and tooth health. Not only that, it also helps whiten teeth and freshen breath naturally. This is one of the best products I have ever received to review. I’m pretty picky when it comes to my teeth and overall oral health, if you ask me, EvoraPlus is a must have!!” by John

“Who doesn’t feel like they need whiter teeth? After all we put our teeth through, the staining drinks like soda, coffee and tea. We are lovers of all of those beverages in our house, so our teeth could use a little whitening.”  by Susan

Settle rough seas and welcome calm waters …

A fast-paced modern lifestyle can be difficult for both adults and children. Trying activities such as work deadlines, job interviews, school competitions and public interactions don’t make it any easier either.

It’s not uncommon to find oneself a little overwhelmed at the thought of a particular upcoming event or situation. Sometimes demands may be so great that it is difficult to slow down and take a deep breath, causing us to worry about everything.

What else can you do?

A lot can be done to support a healthy ability to relax and slow down. One way of doing this is to keep your mind producing its own natural feel good chemicals by eating lots of fresh fruit and vegetables and whole grain foods, getting plenty of fresh air and sunshine and exercising regularly.

Practicing relaxation techniques, meditation or even taking time for a regular walk on the beach can all help to reduce stress levels and facilitate a feeling of calm – helping us to wind down and relax.

Natural remedies can also help to support the nervous system and to keep nerves settled and soothed – to enable us to cope more easily with the everyday stresses of our modern existence. In fact, natural remedies have been used in traditional medicine for thousands of years to support the healthy functioning of the brain and nervous system.

In more recent times, research has confirmed this traditional wisdom. There are now many published clinical studies demonstrating the ability of a range of herbs to support the normal functioning of the brain and nervous system and maintain a healthy equilibrium – which will assist with staying calm under pressure. (Akhondzadeh S, Naghavi HR, Vazirian M, Shayeganpour A, Rashidi H, Khani M. “Passion flower in the treatment of generalized anxiety: a pilot double-blind randomized controlled trial with oxazepam.” J Clin Pharm There. 2001;26(5):369-373.)

What are the Ingredients?

PureCalm is a 100% herbal formula and contains the following ingredients in therapeutic dosage: Lavender, Lemon balm, Passion flower.

Native Remedies’ products are created using our Full Spectrum Approach™ (FSA), a set of standards and processes that combines the best quality, laboratory-tested, raw ingredients, good manufacturing practices and a Full Spectrum manufacturing method to guarantee you products of the highest quality, safety and effectiveness.

This product contains no animal products, gluten, artificial colors, flavors or preservatives, is suitable for lacto-vegetarians,and is not tested on animals, and backed by a One Year Unconditional Money Back Guarantee.

Lemon balm (Melissa officinalis) has been studied for its beneficial effect on the nervous system (Kennedy DO, Scholey AB, Tildesley NT, Perry EK, Wesnes KA. Attenuation of laboratory-induced stress in humans after acute administration of Melissa officinalis (Lemon Balm). Psychosom Med. 2004 Jul-Aug;66(4):607-13.)

Lavender (Lavandula augustifolia) is another well-known herb which has made its home in countries all over the world. Lavender contains the active ingredients tannins, coumarins, flavonoids, triterpenoids and volatile oil. It is best known for its soothing properties and as a tonic to support the nervous system. (Lewith GT, Godfrey AD, Prescott P, et al. “A single-blinded, randomized pilot study evaluating the aroma of lavandula augustifolia as a treatment for mild insomnia.” J Altern Complement Med. 2005; 11:631-637).

Passion flower (Passiflora incarnata) is regarded very highly by traditional herbalists for its soothing properties as a general nerve tonic. In modern herbalism, Passiflora incarnata is known as a natural aid for the nerves. This has been supported by clinical trials. (Akhondzadeh S, Naghavi HR, Vazirian M, Shayeganpour A, Rashidi H, Khani M. “Passion flower in the treatment of generalized anxiety: a pilot double-blind randomized controlled trial with oxazepam.” J Clin Pharm There. 2001;26(5):369-373.)

How do I use PureCalm?

Dilute drops in a small amount of water or juice, and sip slowly. Alternatively, hold bottle upside down and drop directly into the mouth.

Adults & Children 10+: Take 10-20 drops 3 times daily or use as needed for immediate relief.

Children 6-9: Take 1 drop per year of age 3 times daily.

Caution: Safety during pregnancy has not yet been established. However, if you are pregnant or nursing, try Triple Complex Calm Tonic to safely and effectively relieve panic, stress, worry and nervous tension.

How long until I see results?

PureCalm contains three powerful all natural proven herbs in concentrated medicinal extract as a tincture formula that facilitates rapid absorption into the blood stream.

This means that the healthy functioning of the nervous system is instantly supported, and you will get optimum results with regular use.

While conventional medicine works by often treating just the symptoms, natural medicine strives to create holistic balance in the body to support systemic health, relieve ailments, and help prevent future disease. Unlike pharmaceutical drugs, the natural ingredients in our remedies support overall health and functioning (rather than just suppressing symptoms).

People respond to natural medicine in different ways, some of folks experience immediate results while many others have reported optimal benefits taking effect within 3-6 weeks. To ensure you receive optimum results it is important to take natural remedies as directed and remain consistent. You may also find that a smaller maintenance dose is beneficial for ongoing support, many customers report taking a regular maintenance dose as part of a preventative program for continued health and well-being.

How long will a bottle last?

One bottle of PureCalm will last approximately 30 days (depending on frequency of use).


“I came across your internet site when I desperately was searching for answers why my 12 year old son was having anxiety …He was on [medication] but after about 1 year the [issues] came back and the doctor did not answer my questions. PureCalm works within 10 minutes. The first time I gave it to my son I was blown away how quickly it worked. I tried it out on myself when I had a really bad day, because I wanted to know how Pure Calm works. It helped me, too, within a few minutes just by blocking those disruptive thoughts that made my day so miserable. That was 4 years ago. PureCalm also helped me to taper my son off the [medication]. It has its place in my medicine cabinet and always will. PureCalm is an amazing product.” – Regina W., TX, USA

“I’ve NEVER written a testimonial about any product before but I know there are people like me who are currently suffering… I’ve been using PureCalm for about three weeks and IT WORKS! I was on mind numbing [medications] for 5 years… I stopped taking them and I was about to start them again because the [issue] was getting worse. I can’t believe how well this stuff works. I’ve been using it twice per day in the early morning and afternoon along with my usual dose of fish oil. I’m able to carry on a conversation without going blank and I no longer have the need react to situations… AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!” – Arilia, USA

“This stuff really works. I feel so much better taking it, when I don’t everything is horrible. So I definitely take this everyday, but I only take PureCalm once, and the MindSoothe once, and it works great. I recommended it to my boyfriend and he is so much easier to get along with.” – Lily M., AZ, USA

“I started using PureCalm close to 2 years and was waking up each day to anxiousness due to menopausal symptoms. I had wanted to go through this time without prescription or hormone replacements. So as I began to research. I came across Native Remedies and decided to try PureCalm for starters and I can tell you the results were almost immediate. The anxiety I felt was gone and I then added MindSoothe to the mixture as well. The combination was great and I felt like a new person. I had managed to work through the menopausal period with almost no symptoms. Not only have I recommended PureCalm to 2 other friends and both had the same results. But the real testimony I am writing about is my husband… His blood pressure would go high every time he was in a doctor’s office. It always caused a lot of stress because he would have to go through so much aggravation to be able to get permission to play sports etc. Well this continued through his adult years as well and every time with work physicals he would have to go through numerous visits and re-testing of his blood pressure before they would admit that he did not have true high blood pressure but [anxiety at the clinics. Each year this would cause him stress because when time for company physical he would yet again go through this same ordeal. Well, 2 years ago his doctor put him on … medication, against his argument, because she felt he could have blood pressure [issues] because of the stress of having it read at her office, but then what’s to say that job or life stress was not doing that to him as well. Now that he was in his early 50’s, she felt it was too much of a risk not to treat it, even though he was taking his [readings] regularly at home and the workplace and it was never high. He was not happy about it but agreed to it, but even over the 2 years when he went for his blood work his pressure would be high even if he took 2 pills before he went but the minute he was out of there it was back down. So, for the last 2 months my husband experimented and took PureCalm also 3x a day and for a week before his yearly appointed he did not take his blood pressure medicine. When he went in just yesterday for the very first time in almost 30 years his blood pressure was the best reading they had ever gotten for him in the doctors office!! The nurse let out a big wow!! Mark confessed that he had not taken his blood pressure medicine for a week(not that we would ever advise any of doing that with out their doctors approval). They were shocked and amazed and when his doctor came in she was equally surprised and pleased as well to the point that she is actually finally agreeing and taking him off of his prescription and having him come back in 2 weeks to see if it remains the same! By the time we left the office we had given both the doctor and the nurse the Native Remedies site! I am so grateful for coming across this site!” – Kathy, NY, USA

A Healthy Secret: A Squatty Potty!

A Healthy Secret: A  Squatty Potty!

Could Help for Your IBD, UC, Crohn’s Be A Simple Squat Away?

The caveman, people in remote third world countries, and the Japanese all do it; what do they know that we don’t?


It isn’t new, although it might be new to you.


Squatting is a healthier and more natural position than sitting on a toilet for enabling bowel movements. It prevents straining, damage to pelvic floor muscles, and hemorrhoids too. It enables total evacuation; you’ll never leave the toilet again feeling that you still need “to go”.


Click here to find out more info

Has your doctor ever told you that using a SquattyPotty might help your IBD, UC, Crohn’s ?





Let’s review the mechanics of going to the bathroom. People can control when they defecate, to some extent, by contracting or releasing the anal sphincter. But that muscle can’t maintain continence on its own. The body also relies on a bend in the rectum (where feces is stored), and the anus (where feces comes out).

When we’re standing or sitting the bend, called the anorectal angle, is kinked which puts upward pressure on the rectum and keeps the feces inside. The sitting posture actually keeps us in ‘continence mode’. This makes elimination difficult and incomplete, creating the need to STRAIN. Some researchers have compared the anatomical predicament created by sitting on a toilet to trying to defecate through a kinked garden hose. It just doesn’t work.

In the squatting posture, the puborectalis muscle relaxes allowing the bend to straighten out resulting in easier defecation. Squatting is the natural way to achieve easier and more complete elimination. Research shows that squatting relieves the kink effect. Also, the pressure of thigh muscles against the lower abdomen helps with exertion and elimination.

Assuming the squat position is the natural way to achieve easier and more complete elimination. Research has shown that in some people, the kink is completely gone while squatting.


“Because of the anorectal angle being in a kinked position while sitting you are forced to strain in order to move the bowels, which is the main cause of hemorrhoids. While squatting the angle straightens out allowing the fecal matter to eliminate quickly and easily without straining.”

– Israel Journal of Medicine

“The ideal posture for defecation is the squatting position. In this way the capacity of the abdominal cavity is greatly diminished and intra-abdominal pressure increased thus encouraging expulsion.”

– William S. Haubrich MD , Bockus Gastroenterology


There is so much benefit in such a simple change of habit!
The modern day toilet is convenient, but has one major fault; it requires us to sit. While sitting to do our business may be considered “civilized”, studies show the natural squat position improves our ability to eliminate.
Better elimination may decrease many modern day ailments including bloating, straining, hemorrhoids and constipation.

Dr. Mercola – For Best Toilet Health: Squat or Sit
December 03, 2012


“Is the Western toilet in part responsible for problems like hemorrhoids, constipation, IBD (Inflammatory Bowel Disease), appendicitis, and even heart attacks?

Sitting on the modern Thomas Crapper-style sit-down toilet is designed to place your knees at a 90-degree angle to your abdomen. However, the time-honored natural squat position places the knees much closer to your torso, and this position actually changes the spacial relationships of your intestinal organs and musculature, optimizing the forces involved in defecation.Sitting to evacuate your bowel requires you to apply additional force (straining), which has some unwanted biological effects, including a temporary disruption in cardiac flow.


Can the Toilet Be Blamed for Increasing Rates of Colon and Pelvic Disease?

Squatting is the way our ancestors performed their bodily functions until the middle of the 19th Century. Chair-like toilets were reserved for the royals and the disabled. But the “progress” of westernized societies may be partly to blame for higher rates of colon and pelvic disease, as described by a report in the Israel Journal of Medical Science:

“The prevalences of bowel diseases (hemorrhoids, appendicitis, polyps, ulcerative colitis, irritable bowel syndrome, diverticular disease, and colon cancer) are similar in South African whites and in populations of prosperous western countries. Among rural South African blacks with a traditional life style, these diseases are very uncommon or almost unknown.”

As globalization continues to make its way across the world, squat toilets are being converted to sitters. For example, Thailand’s Health Ministry just announced it will replace squat toilets with the sit-down varieties at all public facilities.3

This may be a bad thing for public health, as a wide range of health problems have been associated with the transition from squatting to sitting. In fact, health problems potentially stemming from the sitting position include the 15 outlined in the following table.





Evidence suggests bowel and pelvic problems may be related to improper potty posture. Only with the traditional squat position is your body aligned in a way that promotes complete bowel emptying. As you can see from the diagram, squatting actually straightens and relaxes your rectum.


According to Jonathan Isbit of Nature’s Platform:

“For safety, nature has deliberately created obstacles to evacuation that can only be removed by squatting. In any other position, the colon defaults to ‘continence mode.’ This is why the conventional sitting position deprives the colon of support from the thighs and leaves the rectum choked by the puborectalis muscle.These obstacles make elimination difficult and incomplete – like trying to drive a car without releasing the parking brake.

Chronically incomplete evacuation, combined with the constant extraction of water, causes wastes to adhere to the colon wall. The passageway becomes increasingly constricted and the cells start to suffocate. Prolonged exposure to toxins will often trigger malignant mutations.”

He goes on to explain how the kink where your sigmoid joins your rectum (refer to the colon diagram above) serves an important function in continence. It “applies the brakes” to the flow of peristalsis, reducing the pressure on your puborectalis muscle. According to Isbit’s article, squatting offers seven advantages:





Two common problems are hemorrhoids and constipation. Unfortunately, many people needlessly suffer because they are too embarrassed to broach the topic with their healthcare providers. Fortunately, these all-too-common problems can be resolved with similar strategies because they share the same causative factors, including the typical Western diet, inadequate exercise, chronic dehydration, and stress. Surveys suggest that, in westernized countries, as much as half the population over age 40 may suffer from hemorrhoids.

Hemorrhoids are veins in the wall of your rectum and anus that have become twisted, swollen and inflamed. They can form either internally or externally, and the resulting lumps can cause pain and bleeding.

Hemorrhoids are most often created by an increase in pressure, usually from straining to have a bowel movement. Hemorrhoids are common in people with chronic digestive disturbances – especially constipation. They are also seen in the elderly, and during pregnancy. If you’re pregnant, the additional pressure your growing baby places on your uterus can result in hemorrhoids. Childbirth can increase the problem, but fortunately, most hemorrhoids caused by pregnancy resolve after delivery.

There is research casting doubt on the theory that hemorrhoids are caused by insufficient dietary fiber, but instead by other factors such as the loss of the “ancestral diet,” and the straining associated with defecating from a sitting position.

Dr. Berko Sikirov, an Israeli physician who studied the health effects of squatting for elimination, found that hemorrhoids were virtually eliminated when hemorrhoid sufferers switched their toileting position from sitting to squatting.5 Sikirov concluded hemorrhoids result from continual aggravation and injury from excessive straining by defecating in the sitting position. Straining is necessary to overcome the constriction in the rectum designed to maintain continence.

To prevent hemorrhoids, you should also stay hydrated with adequate water daily, seek to control your emotional stress, and get plenty of exercise. Make sure your diet includes plenty of probiotics, such as those present in traditionally fermented foods like sauerkraut and other fermented vegetables, which are important for maintaining optimal intestinal flora. For a complete discussion of hemorrhoid prevention and treatment, refer to my earlier article on this topic.

Occasionally a deficiency of bioflavonoids allow blood vessels to break easier and if this is the case a supplement called rutin is particularly helpful at correcting. If you bruise easily this is a strong suggestion that you would benefit from taking rutin.



Constipation and hemorrhoids are two sides of the same coin. Your risk for hemorrhoids increases greatly if you have recurring episodes of constipation. One of the biggest hindrances to your success may be not realizing you’re constipated in the first place. Regular bowel movements are extremely important for your health because, without them, toxins accumulate and are recirculated in your bloodstream. If elimination is not regular and complete, the wastes will dry and become cemented to the walls of your colon.

Constipation has been shown to increase your risk of colon cancer and has been implicated in diverticulosis and appendicitis. The cumulative lifetime use of commercial laxatives has been associated with increased risk of colon cancer.

Conventional medicine typically defines constipation as fewer than two or three bowel movements a week. But you should really be having one bowel movement a day, and preferably two or three. So if you are having less than one bowel movement per day, you should take steps to increase them. Some of the common causes of constipation include laxative abuse, hypothyroidism, IBD, and ignoring the urge to go. If you consistently ignore the urge to have a bowel movement – for instance, to avoid using a public toilet – eventually you may stop feeling the urge.

Laxatives are NOT a good option as your body may become dependent on them. Laxatives may decrease your colon’s ability to contract and can even eventually damage your large intestine’s nerves, muscles, and other tissues. This applies to both pharmaceutical laxatives, as well as herbs like cascara. Fortunately, although constipation is very common, it is also usually temporary and relatively easy to resolve – without resorting to laxatives. Squatting is one of the best interventions, preventing constipation in four ways:

Gravity does most of the work. The weight of the torso presses against the thighs and naturally compresses the colon. Gentle pressure from the diaphragm supplements the force of gravity. The ileocecal valve, between the colon and the small intestine, is properly sealed, allowing the colon to be fully pressurized. The pressure creates a natural laxative effect. In the sitting position the IC valve is unsupported and tends to leak, making it difficult to generate the required pressure. Squatting relaxes the puborectalis muscle, which normally chokes the rectum to maintain continence. Squatting lifts the sigmoid colon to unlock the “kink” at the entrance to the rectum. This kink also helps prevent incontinence, by taking some of the pressure off the puborectalis muscle. Preventing and treating constipation is very similar to preventing and treating hemorrhoids. Pay attention to your diet, exercise, hydration and stress level. Consume probiotic-rich foods and possibly add a probiotic supplement.

Chia and organic psyllium are excellent sources of soluble and insoluble fiber, aloe vera and magnesium supplements can also be useful tools to speed up your bowel movements.

For a complete discussion of constipation prevention and treatment, refer to my earlier article on this topic.




The scientific benefits of squatting have sparked efforts to design devices that help would-be squatters to return to a more natural pooping position. However, if you’ve been using a sit-down toilet your entire life and haven’t squatted since childhood, squatting may present somewhat of a physical challenge – to say the least!

Various devices have appeared in the marketplace to assist with this problem, such as the Squatty Potty, developed by Robert Edwards, a 37 year-old contractor and designer in Utah who sought a way to help his mother relieve her problems with constipation and hemorrhoids.
You may wish to check out some of these contraptions on the Internet. Squatting involves strength and flexibility that adults tend to lose over time, but children have naturally. These devices – special toilets and stools that get your body into a more “squatty” position – may help you get closer to the ideal.

Another advantage of squatting? Killer thighs. Nothing builds your thighs like a squat. Adding some squats at the gym will undoubtedly help you with your squats in the bathroom!”



Stricken By Hemorrhoids

“I have been absolutely stricken by Hemorrhoids for about the last 7 years. I immediately saw a doctor when the first thrombosis appeared, and he told me that he could operate, but that I would be laid up for weeks, and I wasn’t terribly interested. I gingerly stood up, walked out, and it did ‘get better’ after a few weeks. Unfortunately it came back, disappeared, came back worse, didn’t quite disappear, got worse again, and worse, regardless of fiber / ointments / suppositories / anything else. I had to stop riding my bike. I could not run. This started when I was 25 years old! I had been in great shape (and still am) but lost my mobility due to the incessant screaming from ‘down below’.


Ok, Fast forward. This past spring break things got so bad that I literally just sat in a chair for a week. I dropped my math classes at the U cause I just could not think about math due to the pain. Finally I went to a colorectal surgeon again. She showed me the color prints of what she called ‘successful’ surgery and I panicked. There was no way that I would submit myself to any of the suggested operations.

Especially not the new stapling process. Just look into it if you want to feel really uncomfortable.


I went home. I searched the internet again and again for ‘hemorrhoid cure’ or similar. I had been doing this for years but never came across the information about squatting. This time I did.


I found a summary of the study performed by the Israeli doctor, where he suggested to 20 grade 3-4 H. sufferers to squat for a year (and to respond immediately to the urge, whenever possible) and coloscoped them again after the year had passed. 18 out of 20 were completely cured after a year. The two who were not cured had previously suffered at the hands of doctors — they had both had banding operations. Banding is, of course, listed as the least of all the procedures, in terms of ‘down time’.


Hmm, I said. Hmm. At this point, having a bowel movement was such an ordeal for me that I was looking for anything, and there appeared to be absolutely no downside to trying a squat to to my business. I ordered a platform from naturesplatform immediately after my first experiment on my toilet seat.


First time I tried it I knew that there was something to this 2.5 months have passed. I go every day now. No problem, I feel the urge and I go. I have not sat to defecate once in this time frame. I can’t imagine it anymore. Squatting works so well, and evacuation is so complete that there is no way I would ever go back.


No way. Never! Oh.. And the Hemorrhoids. They are curing quite nicely. I never even think about them anymore.


Whatever prolapse I had had is now reduced by 90%. I can easily tuck whatever I need to back where it needs to be and it will not protest. Contrasted with my experiences while sitting it is like I have received a new lease on life. I am quite grateful for the illumination and attempt, as sincerely as possible, to relate to others what they need to do to secure themselves a comfortable future.


I feel better than I have in 6 years. I can run and do whatever I want to do. I don’t need to take fiber anymore, unless I want it for its benefits. I am certainly not constipated. I am back in touch with my anal canal nerves. Hopefully there has not been too much damage to my pelvic floor nerves.


One last note on surgery. I read this somewhere and it really stuck. Since surgeries always involve the removal of tissue, it is easy to see how ‘it is impossible to heal that which is not there’.One final note. In having conversations with my mother on this topic, she reminded me how I had informed her that I wanted my diapers back when being potty trained. She gave them back and kept an eye on me.


She revealed that she finally got me ‘trained’ when she noticed me SQUATTING. Hehe. When she saw that she asked me if I had to go, I said yes, and the rest was history. At least it was until I hit 31 and re-remembered the right way to go.”Rolf the cured

The “fix-it-all” Supplement

After each meal, I take 1 capsule of: CarnoSoothe with PicroProtect


I found that even though I ate a good and well-combined diet, after meals I still experienced some bloating and gas, and by taking this CarnoSoothe, it took all of this away. Now, I don’t go anywhere without it. And it helps heal the gastric lining, and intestinal lining as well.

Click here to see about the CarnoSoothe I take


Protecting against factors known to damage the gastric lining is essential to ensuring optimal stomach health. CarnoSoothe with PicroProtect™ combines four remarkable nutrient compounds that naturally modulate the growth of H. pylori while supporting the health of the gastric lining. Two capsules of CarnoSoothe are recommended daily and supply 50 milligrams of zinc L-carnosine.


Scientific evidence indicates this novel chelated compound of zinc and L-carnosine works synergistically to support delicate stomach tissue.24-28 Zinc-carnosine developed in Japan as medicine has been shown to help inhibit inflammatory factors and the effects of cytokine release associated with H. pylori.29,30


Two capsules of CarnoSoothe also supply 500 milligrams of a standardized deglycyrrhizinated licorice (DGL) extract. Licorice extract reduces the formation of pro-inflammatory molecules,31 spurs the formation of prostaglandins that support healthy stomach mucosa, and contains gastroprotective flavonoid compounds. Licorice has also been shown to help inhibit the growth of H. pylori and restore the health of the gastric lining.32-34


Picrorhiza kurroa, a traditional herb grown in the Himalayan Mountains, has been shown to help support a healthy liver and stomach. Its extracts have potent antioxidative and immune-supporting properties, and play a role in gastric protection and healthy liver function.35-41


Lastly, the formula also supplies 750 milligrams of NutriCran® GI, a patented blend of cranberry, wild blueberry, and grape seed extracts. Rich in proanthocyanidins and other antioxidant compounds, cranberry and other plant-based extracts, NutriCran® GI has been shown to be beneficial for gastrointestinal health.42,43

“This product has helped greatly with my digestive acid reflux problems. I was having issues about 3 or 4 times a month and now with this product and B12 added I’ve only had 1 case in almost 8 months.” By Eric, Largo, Florida


“I took prescription acid reducers/proton pump inhibitors for years and ended up with secondary health issues from the medications. This is a natural acid controller and has worked wonderfully for me. I have no side effects from it. Unfortunately, I ran out of it once and I could absolutely tell the difference. This really works!” By Shawna, Dallas, TX


“Used daily this will decrease the burning sensation of reflex and over time eliminate the H. Pirlori bacteria.” By Quilcene from Dabob Bay


“I have had digestive issues for a couple of years on and off with no relief from prescription or OTC. I do take this with Esophoguard and Digestive Enzymes- so not sure which one is having the most effect or maybe it’s a combination of all.” By CE, Minneapolis, MN


“Stop with the antacids and really address the cause of the problem & not the symptom. This in combination with probiotics really works.” By George C., Rio Grande Valley, Texas

overlooked unknown medication that
can put you in remission, or adding
Resistant Starch to your diet, or finding
treats that you can eat, as well as
cautionary tales, and to empower you
with information that your doctor
probably hasn’t shared, but my hope
is also to make you feel “normal” in
your every day living, and not making
you feel like you’re having to live a
“UC Life”.
