THREE RESOLUTIONS WORTH KEEPING

 

Its two thirdbigstock-I-m-The-Best-324629s of the way through January now. Have you, like most Americans, already come up short on keeping your new year’s resolutions if you even bothered with them at all this year? We start out with the best of intentions, but so easily end up getting distracted by the hectic pace and inevitable chaos of life.

 

Despite the advantages of living in the “Information Age” with easy access to all manner of conveniences that are designed to maximize our productivity and quality of life, we are living in challenging times. Our bodies and minds are being bombarded with unprecedented levels of stress. From the relentless demands of immediate interpersonal access (smart phones) to the cumulative burdens of environmental and emotional toxicity associated with living in these days, we would be wise to heed the words of the Apostle Paul who exhorts us to “Be no longer conformed to the patterns of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your minds”. (Romans 12:2)

Even though we recognize that our body is a temple, it is far too easy to take it for granted and mortgage our future with poor choices today. With that in mind, lets look at a few concrete changes or resolutions that are well worth incorporating into our day to day living for 2015 and beyond:

1. HYDRATE – Dehydration is rampant in our culture, and the insidious toll it takes on your health is even more so considering how easily avoidable it is. The leading cause of kidney stones and constipation, dehydration bogs down your metabolism, making even your cells tired. Make cool filtered water (and a little fresh lemon to help alkalize the body) your drink of choice today, and toss the sodas (especially diet). Drink at least a half ounce of water per pound of body weight per day, and up to twice that amount if you exercise (which you should) or drink alcohol or caffeine (which perhaps you shouldn’t – certainly not in excess).

2. GET MOVING – Regular moderate exercise will do wonders for your metabolism, your energy level, your dress or pant size, and your outlook on life. Not to mention all those infamous markers of health such as blood pressure, cholesterol and triglyceride levels that your doctor uses to assess your body’s obvious lack of pharmaceuticals. Forty five minutes of brisk walking three times a week is enough to make dramatic improvements, but adding some anaerobic exercise and light weight bearing repetitions will greatly enhance and diversify your results (i.e.- bone mass gains,etc.).

3. EAT TO LIVE – We have never had so many choices of foods (and cheaply manufactured items masquerading as food) to eat as Americans do today. Only in the last generation has the demand for consumer convenience and extended shelf life made such a happy marriage, creating massive conglomerates that enjoy obscene profits at the expense of our ignorance and our health.

The “patterns of this world” are ever changing in response to the insatiable lusts of mankind, but make no mistake; the things of this world are fiercely set against the wisdom of God and His children. Paul could scarcely have imagined that 2,000 years after he wrote those inspired words, we would be sitting on the couch mindlessly watching television and snacking on fast foods and soda or a highly processed mixture of genetically modified grains, sugar and toxic fats with a few synthetic vitamins added back in to create an illusion of wholesomeness. God knew that the message He gave to the first century church to avoid the corruption of this world would be pure wisdom for all ages, but especially so in these last days.

In order to eat to live, we need to eat living food, and living food does not generally come processed in a box. Reject the foolishness of man’s wisdom and its culture of death, and take advantage of the wonderful diversity of nutrient dense, organic foods that God has made readily available.

Granted, this is easier said than done, as man’s greed has corrupted all of our food sources to some extent through factory farming, genetic engineering and the indiscriminate use of hormones, pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, antibiotics, and a host of other synthetic chemicals that are ever escalating our toxic burden. It is no wonder that so many people suffer from chronic degenerative illnesses, the symptoms of which are the body’s way of revealing a compromised bioterrain within.

This is where Logos Nutritionals and the Burgstiner Wellness Protocol can make such a profound difference in one’s quality of life. The authentic natural medicines that we offer are designed to strengthen the body’s detoxification pathways, restore the integrity of organ systems and revitalize cellular energy and immunity. My father once pointed out to me that “Man turns to excellence just as surely as a flower to the sun”. This is true, whether in the beauty of the arts, the dependable efficacy of a nutritional supplement, or the thrill of athletic competition. We rejoice in the opportunity to serve, both through the quality of our products and the priceless impact of the message of God’s love that we share.

The three resolutions presented here are ones that must be embraced as a lifestyle if you hope to thrive during these difficult times. There are others that may be more obvious and pressing such as stopping smoking or any habit that may be holding you back from achieving your goals. Personally, having for the most part successfully internalized these big three over the years, my main resolution for this year is to write more consistently. To that end, I wholeheartedly solicit the prayers of my readers.

So here’s to 2015; may it be a year of breakthrough in your health, your attitude and your relationships!

After All These Years, Why is “Modern Medicine” Still Bleeding its Patients?

22073517_mThere was a time when the best medicine had to offer was a good bloodletting. From ancient times up to the nineteenth century, blood and other bodily fluids were regarded as “humors” that had to remain in proper balance to maintain health. In medieval Europe, bloodletting became the standard treatment for everything from epilepsy and gout to the plague. It is said that our first president, George Washington, owed his premature demise in part to excessive blood loss from bloodletting.

Today bloodletting remains a conventional therapy for a very small number of conditions such as hemochromatosis, a genetic disorder that causes a toxic accumulation of iron in the body. In this case, bloodletting is the best way to lower the serum iron load. Having been largely rejected as an archaic procedure, bloodletting is once again receiving attention thanks to a 2012 study published in the journal BMC Medicine which suggested that bloodletting might offer cardiovascular benefits to obese people with metabolic syndrome.

Such legitimate benefits notwithstanding, one can only wonder how many people have suffered or died needlessly over the centuries due to the ignorance and arrogance of entrenched medical dogma, especially when taken to extremes. While the advancement of medical knowledge and technology have reduced needless suffering and death for some, the historic marriage of the medical establishment to corporate interests forever changed the face and focus of medicine, exposing all of us to “bleeding” of a different kind.

Its All About Profit

Why is it that drugs so often go about their work in such a clumsy way? Even though most drugs are engineered to target a very precise outcome and mask specific symptoms, the universal laws of cause and effect almost always lead to unintended side effects. These side effects, which become known during the discovery phase of researching a new drug, can be devastating. However, they are sometimes nullified, engulfed in a mountain of “data” and overlooked as an “acceptable risk” when assessing the overall profit potential of a drug.

Obviously not all drugs are bad, and some are even miraculous, but some (such as statins, anti-resorption drugs, proton pump inhibitors and flu vaccines) will go down in history as infinitely more barbaric than bloodletting or any other crude form of medicine. This tragic retrospective judgement of such draconic drugs will be multiplied by the vast numbers of innocent people who suffered from taking them and the obscene profits that were generated through their suffering.

A Road To Hope

As a manufacturer of authentic natural medicines, I cannot imagine bringing to market a product that I knew would bring harm or suffering to a certain percentage of those who took it, much less sudden death. Supplements by definition cannot treat disease by targeting symptoms, and that turns out to be a blessing. Rather than masking symptoms, natural medicines focus on causes, providing nutrients that target metabolic deficits and support compromised organs or systems that contribute to illness.

If you or someone you love is dealing with chronic illness or you just want to maximize your quality of life, take a look at the life transforming supplements that make up the Burgstiner Wellness Protocol and other natural medicines divinely crafted and offered with love by Logos Nutritionals. Their only side effects are HEALTH AND HOPE RESTORED!

Logos Nutritionals 2010 Review and Look Ahead

As I look back and reflect on the year 2010, I am very thankful for God’s provision and grace in the midst of such a difficult economy.  Like most companies that survived last year,  Logos did not experience tremendous revenue growth, but we made significant strides forward in strengthening our ability to serve you and in preparing for the rapid growth we anticipate this year.

Some of last year’s outstanding accomplishments were:

1.    Product Improvement and Development remained a priority. 
•    Liver CS Plus was reformulated from a tablet to a capsule and the prized detoxification formula was even further improved with the addition of N-Acetyl Cysteine. 
•    Monolaurin, a potent antiviral/antimicrobial extract derived from coconuts was added to our line of authentic natural medicines. 
•    The Burgstiner Wellness Protocol Trial/Travel Packs (one week supply of individual dose packets) were introduced with such success that we are now working on a
Thirty Day Supply Pack.
•     Several other projects were begun that will soon be introduced, such as a revolutionary new sleep formula, a new thymic formula in capsules, and a groundbreaking new cardiovascular health formula.

 2.    Developing our customer service potential remained a priority.
•    Negotiated strategic agreements with suppliers to streamline inventory control and supply chain functions to allow for unimpeded growth.
•    Enhanced fulfillment capabilities – scalable for growth.
•    Upgraded Internal Communications system.
•    Discovered and repaired design flaws in company website to improve customer experience and organic search visibility.

3.    Marketing and Communications remained a priority.
•    The Logos Website Continues to grow – (Nearly 600,000 unique visitors last year, 77% of them new)
•    Developed Social Media Outreach Program including this blog, published articles, a Facebook Page and most recently, a Twitter Page and Broadcast Feed.
•    Thanks to you, the word is getting out about Logos!

In these difficult economic times, every business must necessarily concern itself with market share and the bottom line, but regardless of how large it grows, Logos will always measure its success by the impact it has in the lives of its employees, vendors and especially its customers.
 
We look forward to the challenges and opportunities of 2011 with great anticipation.  We plan to continue expansion of our product line and web presence, and build quality relationships with medical practitioners who can help document and validate the efficacy of our amazing products.  Most of all, we look forward to continuing to serve you.

On behalf of our entire team at Logos Nutritionals, we thank you again for your loyal support!

Flu Vaccine Season is Here… Not!

Every year we get a lot of inquiries at Logos Nutritionals from customers about whether or not they should take the flu shot. We cannot and do not dispense medical advice, but we can help educate the public as to the known relative risks and benefits of flu vaccines so they can make informed decisions. I am also free to disclose that I would not personally take a flu shot under any circumstances… nor would I allow any of my family members to.

Flu Shot Risks and Rewards

Taking a look at the potential risks and rewards of flu vaccines, lets review what we know about them:
Flu vaccines are made by growing known strains of flu virus in various embryonic animal or human tissues (monkey kidney tissue, guinea pig, calf serum or human diploid cells from aborted fetuses are commonly used)and then combining small amounts of dead or weakened viruses with a concoction of toxic chemical preservatives and antibiotics that are intended to discourage the growth of unwanted microbes in the medium. The supposed shortage of flu vaccines in recent years has been blamed on vast numbers of tainted dosages having to be destroyed. The concoction is then injected into the body, producing a subclinical infection that causes the immune system to mount an antibody response to, presumably conferring the host protection from those particular strains in the event of subsequent exposure.

Dealing with the ongoing flu challenge with vaccines is a daunting task. There are countless known active influenza strains in the world, and each of them is quite capable of mutating into a new and different superstrain that could wreak havoc on entire populations. A group of international researchers convenes each year to make an “educated guess” about which three strains are most likely to proliferate in the coming year, and those strains are included in this year’s batch.

Do Flu Shots Save Lives?

Given the massive number of doses administered each year and the generous financial and marketing support given to flu vaccines by the government, you might expect that a large body of solid research would back up these products… however, according to vaccine researcher and educator Dr. Sherry Tenpenney, that is not the case.
For years, flu shot advocates have claimed that flu shots are most effective in saving the lives of seniors, because they are more susceptible to serious complications when they contract the flu. But a recent study highlighted in The Lancet Medical Journal stated that it is not true that elderly lives are actually being saved: “No studies have conclusively proven that influenza shots prevent flu-related deaths in people over the age of 65, and some of the arguments that have been used to support this idea are based on faulty data.” (Reuters, September 27, 2007)

Flu Shot Safety

Opponents of flu shots question the need for special protection that the government gives vaccine manufacturers which shields them from liability when their products inflict irreparable harm on a trusting and naive public. When entire countries move to protect their citizens by banning a flu vaccine like Australia did earlier this year, there are obviously serious concerns about safety.

Ironically, according to flu vaccine opponents, it is not the viral components of the vaccines that pose the major threat, but the adjuvants or additives that are included to enhance the body’s immune response. The adjuvants were blamed for the many cases of seizures and convulsions in children that prompted Australia’s ban. Among other things, flu vaccines are known to contain the following harmful ingredients:

1. Thymerosol – A mercury derived preservative that has been linked to brain damage and autoimmune disease.
2. Phenol – Or carbolic acid, a common component of dyes and disinfectants.
3. Ethylene Glycol– Otherwise known as anti-freeze.
4. Formaldehyde – Yep, that’s the stuff they pickled the frog you dissected in Biology class with.
5. Aluminum – added to promote antibody response, it is associated with Alzheimers and seizures and has been known to cause cancer in lab mice.
6. Neomycin and Streptomycin – antibiotics to retard growth of contaminating bacteria, responsible for allergic reactions in some patients.

Even the most avid supporters of flu vaccines readily admit that taking the shot is no guarantee of avoiding the flu, and although consumers never see them, the vaccines are supposed to be accompanied by an information sheet that presents the many known side effects that are associated with them.

Natural Alternatives to Prevent or Treat Flu

There are many natural alternatives to prevent or even treat the flu, but suffice it to say that building up natural immunity with whole foods and supplements, managing stress and getting adequate rest and exercise is a great place to start. The Burgstiner Wellness Protocol offers comprehensive nutritional support to every organ system and every aspect of human metabolism, including those most critical nutrients to helping you avoid or endure the flu – vitamin C, vitamin D, omega fats and thymus gland support.

First Anniversary on Entire Wellness Protocol – Hope Isn’t a One Time Deal

From Mel Friedman’s website:

melman raft Hiya All,

Welcome as always.

Saturday, August 21st is the second anniversary of the inception of the protocol that has restored my health as outlined on the protocol page of my website. It also marks one full year of my being on the entire Burgstiner Wellness Protocol from Logos Nutritionals.

I have been symptom free since December 2009 and off all Morgellons related medications for for a little more than nine months now.  If someone would have told me two years ago that I would be rafting down the Truckee River twice in a five week period of time, I would have found them difficult to believe.

The fact that I sustained a minor back injury between the two rafting trips makes it a little more difficult for even me to comprehend.  Rafting down the Truckee was something that I had not done in the first nine years that I have lived here in Reno. Now, I have gone down two separate parts of the river… the second even more beautiful than the first, as we started high atop Lake Tahoe at Tahoe city.

As you gently float down the river from Tahoe City to Truckee, you are in awe of winding through the mountains.  The beauty is incomprehensible.  During my five hour trip, many times I found my mind wandering to all of you who are caught up in the nightmare of Morgellons disease, and looking forward to the day when many of you will be joining me on a trip such as this.

As I have often said, never, never give up Hope. My back is a little sore and my knees are a little stiff, but according to my doctor, Shannon Zamboni MD, I am “The Picture of Health”.

Now I would like to thank the folks from A2Z, a very special thanks to my doctor Shannon Zamboni as well as John Burgstiner for enduring along with me my struggle of many years against Morgellons.

God Bless You All.  Never, Never Give up Hope.

Logos Nutritionals Announces New and Improved Liver Support Formula

1Liver CS 60s-New Clip Liver CS Plus was already among the most outstanding liver support/detoxification formulations in the world, having been featured in the Townsend Letter to Doctors and Patients and by the Health Sciences Institute, but recent enhancements to the formula have made it even better. 

An established favorite among natural practitioners, Liver CS Plus has accumulated a loyal following in the hepatitis C community and a growing demand in the preventive health and anti-aging markets.

Detoxification is becoming more and more of an issue every day as our bodies are being burdened with ever increasing demands from chronic low level toxic chemical exposures. This is why revitalizing detoxification organs and promoting elimination pathways is such a prominent aspect of the Burgstiner Wellness Protocol.

The new encapsulated formula is cleaner since we removed the excipients required for manufacturing tablets, and we boosted the antioxidant potential of the formula substantially by adding NAC (N-Acetyl Cysteine), a sulfur based amino acid that binds heavy metals, promotes glutathione production and is thought to inhibit the formation of biofilms.

No question, with the changes we have made, Liver CS Plus is one of the most profound natural medicines on the planet with its ability to protect and promote liver function.  Try it today and give your liver a break… it is, next to your heart, your hardest working organ.

Logos Announces Research Project on MagnifiCal

 

Logos_Magnifical_CroppedWhen we first set out to develop MagnifiCal, we had in mind a top of the line bone health formula.  After all, our comprehensive Burgstiner Wellness Protocol would not be complete without bone support.

 
Through an incredible combination of determined persistence, good fortune and divine revelation, we ended up with not only a formidable bone health product, but a cutting edge anti-aging formula.  MagnifiCal is designed to restore calcium metabolism,  removing excess calcium from the soft tissues and placing it back into the bones where it belongs.

Recently we reached an agreement with a first class Integrative Medicine Clinic to conduct a clinical research survey with their patients to evaluate the efficacy of MagnifiCal.

The study will be looking at MagnifiCal’s effects on bone mass and calcium score as well as its reported ability to reduce and/or eliminate bone spurs.  We will keep you posted on our progress with the study and we look forward to sharing the results.
