BAC Heart to Heart
The Martial Art of Wellness
Volume 7 – January 2008
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.
QUOTE OF THE MONTH
“ Though scientists do not all agree till now on the relationship between illness and nutrition, evidence is mounting and there is a general consensus that the quality and quantity of foods we consume in our affluent society and our sedentary lifestyle are the main factors causing many forms of cancer, cardiovascular and other degenerative diseases. ”
Dr. Ted Cooper, MD
Former US assistant Health secretary
THIS ISSUE’S TESTIMONIALS:
Extremely High Frequency
“ Meanwhile, I’ve some things to report on the algae products I’m taking. I only managing to take one each of the F-2 and F-3 twice a day. However, within a week I noticed:
- My energy level is maintaining throughout the day instead of the usual 2:00 pm slump I experienced in the afternoon.
- My mood is much better and more positive; not overly so but just level. Things don’t get me down as much.
- Because I’ve got so many other vitamins left, I tried to combine ingesting them along with the algae and promptly threw them up each time. My body just flat out rejected the other supplements after taking this algae.
- I sleep soundly and wake up much earlier, feeling awake and refreshed.
- I feel well-fed on this product. My body feels nourished.
There is an extremely high frequency to these products. ”

“Human metabolisms function from cellular levels to organ levels, as in the great example of the cardiovascular system. The regulation of these metabolisms depends entirely on the neuro-vegetative system directly via hormones and peptides or/and indirectly via myriads of other bio-feedback interactions. Efficient cellular nutrition for the brain master glands is indispensable for optimization of this grandiose complex”
During a short break at a live presentation in Wisconsin in 2004, doctor Kiriac handed me a sheet with these three phrases above written in French, and asked me to translate them to English immediately, in order to present the concept to our audience that night.
At that time, I had a wholistic and generic understanding of what he meant, but its only a few years later after more talks with Dr. Kiriac, after reflections and other research of my own that I come to realize how little I knew about what he meant “exactly”. Today I have a clearer “cause and effect” comprehension of this “grandiose complex” and I want to share it with you next.
The conventional medical view of cardiovascular disease:
Let me start with a brief partial description by example of the conventional view so that we can have base comparison and resulting choices in the pursuit or recovery of cardiovascular health.
First let’s look at just two numbers.
Heart failure – Also called: Cardiac failure, Left-sided heart failure, Right-sided heart failure is a condition in which the heart can’t pump enough blood throughout the body. Heart failure is not a heart attack, and it does not mean that your heart has stopped or is about to stop working. It means that your heart is not able to pump blood the way it should. About 5 million people in the U.S. have diagnosed heart failure and millions more are undiagnosed. It contributes to at least 300,000 deaths each year.
Heart attack – Each year over a million people in the U.S. have a heart attack. About half of them die (500,000). Many people have permanent heart damage or die because they don’t get help immediately
And in millions of other cases, sometimes life saving cases, with heart disease, the heart is replaced, coronary disease is treated by placing a wire mesh (“stents”) inside the arteries to keep them open, or by coronary bypass surgery.
While, that we can perform these operations is marvelous we tend to ignore that these operations in most cases leave the patient heavily medicated with severe side effects, often paralyzed, weak and non productive for the rest of their life.
The current conventional medicine’s model for atherosclerosis (arterial plaque) remains that of putting blame on cholesterol, or excess LDL (low density lipoprotein) caused by oxidation of LDL as a result of a diet rich in saturated fats. The focus of prevention in conventional medicine is to use drugs. Drugs to reduce the LDL level on the blood, aspirin or Plavix to inhibit clotting and prevent heart attacks, and many more. The relationship to diet and exercise is usually a secondary and after the fact recommendation.
The popular view of cardiovascular disease:
The finding of high blood cholesterol is often accompanied by signs of chronic sugar elevation in the blood. This shows a disturbance in fat metabolism as well as the metabolism of carbohydrates and protein. By now rest assure that other metabolism are disturbed.
Cholesterol is a major factor of good circulation and good health. Cholesterol is a fat like substance required to provide lubrication in the lining of the arteries. In addition to cholesterol from our food, the liver also manufactures cholesterol that is used for the cells which lines the arteries.
When arterial cells breakdown, they are excreted by the body while new cells grow to absorb new cholesterol in the blood. The concentration of cholesterol in the blood increases when the breakdown (death of cells) of arterial cells exceeds the building up (birth of new cells).
Problems with cholesterol starts when a diet rich in altered fats. When natural fats are overheated, and cooked with starch as in fried potatoes, donuts, pie crust, pastries, potato chips, etc., they become defective and brought to the liver. When the liver manufactures cholesterol from these defective fats, the cholesterol is also defective and breaks down quickly in the arteries. This leads to degenerative atherosclerosis (plaque), which is usually accompanied by elevated cholesterol in the blood.
Natural fats does not lead to arterial disease. Many diet such as that of some Eskimos included large amounts of fat from seal and walrus, and the arteries where normal and healthy. The arteries supply blood to the heart. When the blood looses fluidity with too much fats, the supply to the heart is reduced, the heart works harder and is damaged. As the heart deteriorates, its muscles and valves loose strength and elasticity, and blood vessels harden. The walls dilate, the timing mechanism is disturbed and this magnificent organ fails.
The wholistic view of cardiovascular disease
In the above dramatic look at heart disease, much of the reality is left out. That the arteries, the blood, and the heart itself are made up mostly of trillions of intelligent and self regulating cells is completely ignored. And what of the regulating and feed back metabolism of the heart; the pericardium, the vagus nerve, the thyroid and adrenal glands, the master pituitary and it overseer hypothalamus? They too are made up mostly of trillions of cells.
If you really want cardiovascular health, you have to look not only at the conventional and/or the popular view, but you must look at the wholistic and systemic view. We human and animals are self regulating organism made up of trillions of cells that are each self regulated. These cells make up organs that are somewhat self regulating while all cells and organs are also subject to the regulating glands and overseeing organs thalamus and hypothalamus.
There are relationship between the heart and other organs, between all organs and the endocrine system, and between the endocrine system and the hypothalamus that cannot be ignored. Yet all of these organs and systems are made of cells. Hence the importance of cellular health and vitality.
If the heart is compared to a motor, then the adrenal gland pumps out adrenaline hormones as gasoline and the thyroid gland with its regulating hormones is like the carburetor. The pericardium and vagus nerve are the electrical pulse and spark that lead the heart to pump harder and pump more oxygen. When the thyroid that controls the rate of the metabolism is overactive, then the hearts beat more rapidly. When it is low, the heart beats slowly and the person feels tired. The pituitary is the steering mechanism over these glands while the hypothalamus is the driver. The hypothalamus receives feedback from all systems, it monitor and regulates all metabolisms including homeostasis.
Acutely involved in cardiovascular health are the pancreas, the liver and the kidney. Chronic blood sugar elevation is a risk factor for coronary artery disease. Both the liver and the kidneys are involved in filtering the blood and when these organs are themselves exhausted and cannot cope with the toxic load in the blood, that places great strain on the heart. When the glomeruli (small filters) in the kidneys become clogged, the arterial blood pressure goes up. When the liver is congested, pressure builds up in the veins. The heart must try harder to push the blood through the kidney filter. So you see that too much attention is placed on cholesterol or the heart itself while abnormal liver and kidney conditions are ignored. In order for cardiovascular health, one must take care not only of heart health, arterial health, but also of liver, and kidney health, endocrine system and hypothalamus health.
The shortest route to achieve this is via prevention and repair through optimum cellular nutrition. The importance of avoiding overeating, fatty foods, junk foods, and to introduce exercise is critical.
Find next some of the direct cardiovascular health factors brought by adding BAC to your diet:
BAC awakens the genius within
When the cells of the body receive the nutrients and the resulting energy that they need, they like good virtuoso will perform their multitude of cellular metabolic activity; growth, repair, cleansing, regeneration, including protecting itself, and much more. When each cell of the organ performs its job well, then the organ will have a fighting chance to perform its metabolic activities such as blood sugar regulation in the good example that is the pancreas. But let’s not forget that cellular and organ health functions are governed by the glandular level which itself is overseen by the “master gland”, the hypothalamus located in the brain.
That BAC’s nutrients efficiently nourish all the cells of the body including those cells of the hypothalamic region, there is no doubt. In the words of Dr. Michael Kiriac, it is in that sense, that BAC awakens the “genius” within. Several phytonutrients and pigments found in BAC like beta carotene, alpha carotene and astaxanthin have been proven in human clinical trials to penetrate the blood brain barrier and furthermore penetrate the blood iris barrier.

BAC and reduction of bad cholesterol
In several studies with spirulina conducted with people and animals it was concluded that it did lower serum cholesterol and was likely to have a favorable effect on alleviating heart disease since the arterioscelosis index improved. Benefits may be amongst other, through its effect on metabolism of lipoproteins.
Heart and blood vessels support with BAC
BAC contains many nutritive agents that are known to contribute to prevention and reversal of cardiovascular health problems. I will enumerate just a few here and remind you that nutrients and there benefits for the heart cannot be separated and single out as in reality they all work in harmony in our body. All nutrients that contribute to cellular health are necessary and good for the heart. Let’s not forget that the heart is made of cells. When the cells of the heart are doing well, then the heart may have a fighting chance.
When put together, several ingredients in BAC are a mighty force against cardiovascular health problems. Beta-carotene, GLA, iron, Mucopolysaccharides are credited with:
- improving elasticity of heart tissues
- lowering of blood pressure
- increasing protection of the vascular system
- prevention and reduction of “bad” cholesterol
- preventing atherosclerosis
- strengthening body tissues, especially connective tissues
- making body tissues more elastic and resilient
- strong anti-inflammatory effects
- reinforcing the tissues of the heart
- guarding against arterial deterioration
- protecting the vascular system by lowering blood fat
