AWAKENING THE GENIUS WITHIN
The Martial Art of Wellness
Volume 8 – March 2009
Welcome to this month’s BioNews. We must learn to free ourselves from the control that others exert over us. As we learn we become FREE, we become powerful. This pursuit of self defense in wellness, I call “The Martial Art of Wellness.” And as we practice we become Wellness Ninjas.

THIS ISSUE’S TESTIMONIALS:
The vet said there was nothing more she could do…
“ My Cairn Terrier Rocky was diagnosed with IMHA (Immune Mediated Hemolytic Anemia) on 10th January 2009. She was prescribed Prednisone & Azathioprine together with Antepsin.
Her PVC fell as low as 9 and on 30th January the vet said there was nothing more she could do for her and recommended putting Rocky to sleep (at this stage Rocky was not eating and could hardly stand up).
I searched the internet and eventually found the BioPreparation on the website (http://www.optimumchoices.com). From here I got the email address of the stockist in England and ordered some BioPreparation-F3 from a very helpful lady; Anne Devereaux (email: Vanadeux@btinternet.com).
The capsules arrived on 4th February and Rocky has been having 1/2 capsule 4 times per day (dissolved in 5ml water & squirted into her mouth with a syringe). I also stopped giving her the drugs prescribed by the vet as these were having no beneficial effect whatever.
I could see an improvement within a day – she was brighter & trying to stand up.
Seven days later she is now trotting round the house, playing with her toys and eating well. Her gums are pink once more and she is well on the road to recovery.
I can’t recommend BioPreparation highly enough – Rocky wouldn’t have survived without it. ”

BOOK RELEASE : AWAKENING THE GENIUS WITHIN
We are pleased to announce the release of the new and updated book
Starting in the early 70s, the agencies in the former USSR invested more than 20,000 person-years of research and development to produce Bio-Algae Concentrates (BAC) that hold extraordinary nutritional properties. Consisting of blends of the four best algae among over 25,000 available on earth, these concentrates have been tested, proven and used for agricultural and human applications now for more than 15 years. These naturally-occurring nutrient storehouses are enhanced by highly-refined, innovative growth technologies. The resulting synergistic nutraceutical blends are of ideal proportion to far exceed the benefits of any other single alga, algae blend, green food or superfood.
This release completes the story of the “The magic of Bio-Algae Concentrates : The Life of Michael Kiriac”. It is now more current and includes the biochemical description of the concept of using bio-algae concentrates as a nutraceutical food, in the words of Michael Kiriac “AWAKENING THE GENIUS WITHIN”, and it describes several current research and case studies. There are many personal stories from users of BAC about themselves and their animals. An excerpt from the book follows:
AWAKENING THE GENIUS WITHIN
In 1999 when I met Michael Kiriac, he told me that consuming BAC was a vastly different concept then that of supplementation. He said that BAC was a “Complement” rather than a “Supplement”. He explained that BAC complements the whole rather than supplements a symptom. That got my attention as in those days, as part of my personal health regimen, I was taking more than 20 different supplements daily.
He told me “Bio-Algae Concentrates Awaken the Genius Within”. He explained that BAC, due to its completeness, balance, synergy, and bioavailability, is an “extremely” efficient food and that its thousands of nutrients easily reach and nourish the cells of certain areas of the brain that are more difficult to reach then others. By “Genius” he referred specifically to this region of the brain that houses the mission critical “governing” organs of our metabolic health; namely the thalamus, hypothalamus, pituitary and pineal glands, and somewhat the cerebellum.
Ultimately these organs and glands are responsible for regulating all physiological metabolisms, including energy. These metabolisms include the endocrine system, the sympathetic and Para-sympathetic nervous system, the central nervous system, the lymphatic system, the cardiovascular system, and the digestive system with its critical assimilation, absorption, and elimination functions. In this book I do not write “scientifically” with long winded descriptions of metabolisms or body parts and hundreds of references intended to prove each mechanism of action. As far as I am concerned, the holistic concepts and views of health expressed in this book are scientifically valid and proven by the results obtained with millions of animals as described previously. In line with keeping this book readable, I will refer to this “governing” region of the brain as the “Genius”.
The Genius Within
The Genius is generally located in the middle and base of the brain. The main function of the Genius is homeostasis, endocrine and energetic coherence, and maintaining the body’s status quo. Factors such as energy, blood pressure, body temperature, fluid and electrolyte balance, fat metabolism, and body weight are held to a precise value called the set-points. The Genius and its allies – “the endocrine glands” – are so important that they are called “the guardians of health”. In essence, all metabolic functions report back to and are governed by the Genius.
PROBLEMS WITH THE GENIUS
The Genius, like any other part of the body, is comprised of billions of cells, each having a task of its own survival and a specific role. Logically, when the cells that makeup the Genius are healthy and doing their work, then the Genius will perform its overseer role adequately. By deduction, it stands that when the cells that make up the Genius are not healthy and not doing their work, then the Genius will not perform its overseer role adequately.
In order to be healthy and perform their work well, cells need hundreds of nutrients required daily. Only when these nutrients and their energy giving material are supplied will the cells grow, repair, defend from attacks, and perform their specialized metabolic functions. Because of protective barriers to the brain, the Genius and its billions of cells are more difficult to reach and nourish adequately than the cells in other parts of the body. With aging or disease, this task of nourishing those cells becomes even more difficult and we become less efficient at assimilating nutrients from our foods. This problem is initiated by poor choice of foods, by deficiencies in our diet, and by other intoxicating stressors. Often it is compounded because our foods are depleted of nutrients and/or inassimilable. These problems are sometimes present at birth due to genetics, lifestyle and deficiencies, or they might manifest early during infancy due to poor nutrition.
OPTIMUM CELLULAR FOOD FOR OPTIMUM CELLULAR NUTRITION
Michael Kiriac told me that BAC is an extremely efficient food that results in optimum cellular health. In our various talks, he always brought health to the cellular level. He suggests that there is only ONE disease – cellular disease, and ONE health – cellular health.
In a “purist” holistic perspective, disease (non-health) can be demystified when you work with the cellular level. Let’s be realistic; disease and their symptoms reside first at the cellular level. Let’s even be scientific; after all, we are made up of hundreds of trillions of intelligent living cells which in turn make up our organs, bones, tissues, blood, and brain. In this model, unhealthy cells lead to unhealthy organs, unhealthy organs lead to deficient metabolic activities, and this in turn leads to symptoms, to which we give a “disease name”. It is safe to say that once you are diagnosed with a disease that the problem is systemic and its causes have been manifesting in every cell of the body for some time. We don’t catch diseases, we make them over time. In the true scientific view, disease is at the cellular level. Let me describe cellular disease in four (4) points:
- Once symptoms of disease are manifesting (as in hypoglycemia, cholesterol, or high blood pressure), most cells of the body are likely toxic, deficient in nutrients and energy, and are likely less efficient in conducting their myriad of survival activities: repair, detoxification, growth and re-generation, and their specialized contribution as in “insulin” production of certain pancreatic cells.
- At the next level, due to those cellular deficiencies, the organs are now less efficient in conducting their own metabolic function. For example, with hypo-glycemia, we say that the pancreas is sluggish in regulating the blood sugar with adequate insulin.
- Realize now, that the Genius which is also made of cells, is itself affected by these same cellular deficiencies and rendered less efficient at regulating metabolisms, like that of blood sugar, pH (acidity/alkalinity), and even the heart beat. You’ve got a serious problem when the Genius itself is atrophied.
- Aggravating the problem, after years and decades of metabolic inefficiencies (improper pH, blood sugar, temperature, fats, etc.), the Genius and its allies – the endocrine glands – have become tolerant of these improper metabolic values. The Genius has become miss-programmed; it now thinks it is in a “healthy” state of health. As in hypoglycemia, when the Genius has become lazy in regulating those cells of the pancreas responsible for insulin production, we have a chronic condition which we choose to name “diabetes”.
At this degenerative stage rest assured that many other cells operate poorly and other symptoms manifest at the organ and metabolic level; you now have poor Krebs/ATP cycle and cellular exhaustion, mal-assimilation, mal-absorption and poor detoxification and elimination, deficient protein synthesis, sluggish osmosis of water (dehydration), deficient oxygenation (hypoxia). There is chronic acidity and resulting acidosis; not only do you have incorrect pH levels, but because of inefficient flushing of cellular debris, you have accumulated acid ashes inside and between the cells. These conditions have led to infestations of bacteria and parasites (fungus, yeast and Candida), to “bad” fats (high cholesterol) and to lack of viscosity. Frequently there is crystallization of fats and other unassimilated debris into plaque and arthritis. Your food / nutrients assimilation and elimination is deficient; you have lost your healing energy, your healing force, and it’s now a vicious cycle.
HOW BAC AWAKENS THE GENIUS WITHIN?
As per Hippocrates’ advice: “Let thy food be thy medicine”, all good foods have the potential to nourish and heal. For this healing to be a reality, the nutrients in the food we eat must be assimilated and absorbed within the cell wall in a sufficient and required quantity. Because of wrong food choice, aging, and other metabolic deficiencies, this becomes quite difficult to achieve and cellular disease takes over. Due to its extraordinary nutrients content and their bio availability, BAC’s nourishment potential is hundreds of times higher than ordinary foods and other sources of nutrients. BAC’s combined nutritional values and high utilization properties deliver the culmination in cellular nutrition.

REALITY CHECK ( Demythifying Vitamin E )
This month I want to tackle the popular vitamin E supplement that millions of people take daily, and for which there is no substantiated evidence of benefits while there is much evidence of minimally “uselessness”, but also much evidence of causing harm, and increasing cancer and cardiovascular related death rate.
Vitamin E and its many form is of such complexity that little is known about its different forms, their assimilation and functionality with other nutrients. One thing for sure, its a required nutrient and without it we would soon be in big biochemical trouble.
This fat-soluble vitamin discovered at UC Berkeley more than 80 years ago has been a star among nutrients for at least 25 years. The term vitamin E describes a family of eight antioxidants: four tocopherols (alpha-, beta-, gamma-, and delta-) and four tocotrienols (alpha-, beta-, gamma-, and delta-). The most potent form of which is alpha tocopherol, the form usually found in Vitamin E supplements. Alpha-tocopherol is the only form of vitamin E that is actively maintained in the human body; therefore, it is the form of vitamin E found in the largest quantities in blood and tissues.
Like other antioxidants, Vitamin E in one of its many roles protects cells against the effects of free radicals, which are potentially damaging by-products of life processes. Free radicals can damage cells and may contribute to the development of heart disease and cancer. Thus Vitamin E plays a role in immune function and has become popular mainly because of this role.
Around 1994, reacting to promising research, vitamin E supplements became heavily recommended as a possible way to reduce the risk of heart disease, cancer, and other disorders. Today, even after many subsequent clinical trials yielding disappointing or conflicting results, endorsement of vitamin E supplements was not softened?
Claims, purported benefits: Helps prevent cancer, heart disease, cataracts; boosts immunity.
In 2004 a much publicized meta analysis from Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions concluded that high doses of vitamin E (more than 400 IU a day) taken long term may slightly increase the overall risk of dying by about 4%. Lower doses of vitamin E (200 IU or less) did not increase the risk. Other meta-analyses on vitamin E found no increased risk.
Bottom line: While vitamin E from foods is important and safe for health, there’s little or no clinical research showing that vitamin E supplements are beneficial and much that shows that it can be detrimental. Nearly all the clinical trials on vitamin E from the past few years have yielded negative, inconclusive, or neutral results. And there has been many trials which I believe were truly not biased, some of international standing and not sponsored by any vitamin company or conventional medical association.
When one study tells you that vitamin E supplement is not cutting it, you can doubt the study, when three studies tell you supplement of vitamin E is not what all the claims say, you should start questioning the claims. But when most studies tell you that supplements of vitamin E is not cutting it, then its time you move on to real vitamin E, that is as it occurs with food!
The best six doctors anywhere,
And no one can deny it
Are sunshine, water, rest, and air, exercise and diet.
These six will gladly you attend
If only you are willing
Your mind they’ll ease
Your will they’ll mend
And charge you not a shilling.
~Nursery rhyme quoted by Wayne Fields, What the River Knows, 1990
There is no reason to take supplements of vitamin E unless you like to take risk with your health, and spend the time and the money shopping for yet one extra item.
There is plenty of vitamin E in foods. Get vitamin E from real whole foods: Seeds, Vegetable Oils, Whole Grains, Leafy Greens, Wheat Germ oil, Almonds, Turnip Greens, Mango, Mixed Nuts, Broccoli, Dandelion Greens, Pistachio Nuts, Spinach, Kiwi, and many more.
The BioSuperfood Vitamin E Connection
And if you are in a state of advanced degenerative condition or disease, then you must do more. Find means to expedite the restoration of your body’s innate capacity to absorb and utilize calcium; and all other nutrients for that matter. Respect above average the recommendations above, eat better, exercise more. And don’t rest until you have restored your energy and balance. Then still there will be no rest for the wellness warrior.
BioSuperfood is an extraordinary ally food that will expedite the return to balance and health. Make sure to get your copy of the newly released book AWAKENING THE GENIUS WITHIN
BioSuperfood feeds the hypothalamus-pituitary axis which is responsible for all metabolisms, that of sugar in the blood, mineral activity, vitamin D synthesis, assimilation of calcium and other nutrients, pH levels, inflammation metabolism, fat and mineral activity, detoxification and even energy.
In 20 years of research, in 20 species and millions of animals, BioSuperfood was showed to:
