The Martial Art of Wellness
Volume 7 – December 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
“ I began to suspect the close relationship between health and proper eating habits when, early in my career as an overworked young doctor, my own health broke down. I have always been a man of great curiosity and as I investigated deeply the chemistry of food along new lines, I came to the conclusion that I, personally must give up the use of drugs and henceforth rely solely on food as medicine. It was not long until, after repeated verified results, I discarded drugs in treating my patients. My colleagues, at the time, thought I had lost my mind. But time has only strengthened my belief. ”

Find next a partial list from the hundred plus testimonials received as part of the survey. I am including them here in the hope that someone else that may be suffering might be inspired to try BioSuperfood for themselves or BioPreparation for a beloved pet or animal.
I have highlighted the referred “issue” within each testimonial so that you can quickly scan through.
A few years back I was suffering from arthritis so bad that I had great difficulty getting into and out of my car. Since I was a “heavy duty” commuter this was a major problem. I heard about the Bio-Algae Concentrates and began taking them. Within four months the symptoms were entirely gone. – N.
I was introduced to your product by a friend of mine, and having taken it for a year I find that my Rheumatoid Arthritis has largely moved into remission. Seems like a great thing for me. Thanks. – Anonymous
When I was diagnosed with breast cancer I had heard of your product. I had a dream that indicated I would benefit from blue foods. After reading your info your product contained blue foods/agents. I did many things that would help me on the road to health. I went to the Ayurvedic Institute for detox and balance, prayer, meditation, a wonderful group of loving people, alkaline diet, and one chemo treatment. I believe all things (above) including bio algae, aided my recovery. – Anonymous
I taken have Formula 3 for several months and am still experimenting with dosages but so far I’ve noticed a great improvement with my digestion. I’ve had IBS for over 40 years and taken numerous digestive enzymes products and love the simplicity of taking one product rather than a dozen daily supplements. – Anonymous
I am using BSF to prevent disease from starting; I see it as an insurance policy as I believe the scientific conclusions based on the research behind the product, to be true. In the time I have been using the product – about 2 years – I cannot remember having a cold or viral infection, so perhaps it is working as a “shield” for my health, placebo effect notwithstanding. I intend to continue using BSF. – Anonymous
I had mercury plus 17 other metals, 7 in my blood stream. My eyes were 1 point from glaucoma, vision 178 over 189. I take bio algae and I have gotten better, there are many reasons, but I believe in your product and it is wonderful. Thank you – L.D.
Being type O+, clotting has always been slower than normal. Within two weeks, my blood clotted normally. – Anonymous
I’m still doing wonderfully and my last blood work at the Dr’s came back very good. I have very little trouble with my stomach. I’m so Thankful to you for this product and my quality of life. Thanks again, – Cheryl Fehring, Issaquah, Washington
My 10 year old American Eskimo dog, Russell, collapsed suddenly this summer. We took him to the vet and his blood levels were critically low. He received an emergency blood transfusion and went to a specialty hospital for a bone marrow biopsy. The results showed bone marrow necrosis. Our vet advised we put Russell down. An internet search for “bone marrow regeneration” led me to a website that sold BioPreparation. We have used the product faithfully and Russell’s blood count is now normal. – Anonymous
I used your products while training and Racing across America I rode 1200 miles in 5 days with less than 5 hrs of sleep. I suffered no unusual soreness or inflammation. I remain alert and for the most part mentally cohesive. I recovered quickly and within a month placed 5th in the North American 24hr Championships. I will be returning to RAAM (The Toughest Ultra Cycling Event in the World) to complete the total 3000 miles in twelve days or less in June of 09. – Anonymous
I do not have a “story” but certainly when I was considering trying your product, the testimonials that I read had a huge influence on my decision to try your product. Periodically, I get lazy and do not take it, but when I realize that I’m not feeling as good as usual, I get back on it and feel “normal” again. – Anonymous
Both my daughter and I take BSF 2 and 3 for seasonal allergies. Whenever we miss taking the BSF we can definitely tell – there’s a lot of sneezing, nose blowing, and watery itching eyes. But taking BSF almost immediately relieves the symptoms. – SB, USA
I found Bio Algae to be an excellent replacement for joint, vitamin and mineral supplements. I have less pain, more mobility and energy to do my physically demanding job at age 54, in fact I outwork many people younger than me! – PD Montana, USA Anonymous
I first heard of BioSuperfood from a friend who had IBS which was gone in three days of using BSF3+. I started using BioSuperfood and I notice new positive changes in/on my body all the time. The most prominent changes are contracting less viruses, the need for less asthma medication, less insomnia, an annual skin rash is extinct, the PH in my body is neutral versus acidic and a general feeling of wellness. – Anonymous
I’ve already posted my amazing testimony, my thyroid works again, so the doctor told me that I would have to be on medication for the rest of my life!!!! Now I use BSF not for my thyroid as it is working again but for my immune system. 🙂 Have a blessed day. – EB
Three times in the last few years I have run out of the F2 capsules. After being out three or four weeks, I developed an old fluid problem and was rushed to the hospital each time with heart problems. I will never run out again unless I just don’t have enough money to buy them. – Lee Brown, Cisne, IL.
BioSuperfood has helped me cope with stress during a stressful marriage relationship. It has kept my spirits high despite negative surroundings. Mental clarity would describe my thinking, and I have found my way out of the former fog. I have been able to be upbeat, confident and feel empowered. – LM, ID
Both husband and I were taking this as a general supplement when I got pregnant. Very healthy pregnancy and baby as I continued to use it through pregnancy. I have not had difficulty conceiving and we have had some good success. – Anonymous
I have struggled with congenital respiratory illnesses my entire life. By 18 months of age I coped with severe allergies, asthma, chronic bronchitis, bouts of severe tonsillitis and double bronchial pneumonia … The F2+F3 BSF Combo are the single most effective nutritional supplement I’ve ever used…and I’ve tried dozens… I’ve been off all medications for over 2 years. Even the worst summer pollutants no longer trigger asthmatic reactions. Thanks so much for the products you offer! – Anonymous
Very Appreciated! – TW
My hands were falling asleep during the night, and I would wear wrist braces to prevent this. After taking BSF F2 and F3 for about 1 to 1 1/2 years, I was able to sleep without numbness and without the braces. Also, increasing the F3 has helped with menopause, greatly reducing hot flashes. – D.O., PA, USA
I noticed an immediate difference when I began taking BSF. The first night, and every night for weeks after, I slept like a baby. No waking up at 3am, unable to go back to sleep. I was sleeping better than I had in many, many years. My energy level began to improve within a couple of weeks and at the end of 3 weeks I had stopped falling asleep in my chair after dinner. Within 5 weeks my digestion and elimination are better. – Anonymous
My 3.5 year old Sheltie, Riley was diagnosed with lymphoma. He is taking chemo therapy but is on F3 formula 1/2 capsule 6 times per day. He went into remission with his second chemo, and the tumor had completely gone away. He has only had one bad reaction to the chemo and has plenty of energy and is leading a full life. – Anonymous
I started using this product because I was going to a gym and using a very determined personal trainer. At 67 years old I was lifting weights, doing the treadmill with an incline of 5 and at the speed of 6, and doing core exercises of balance, planks, and abdomen. Unfortunately my trainer moved on. I was amazed during that year at what I was able to do and how fast I was able to increase in weight and balance, and I believe this is partly due to the product, and partly to the trainer. I’ll let you know! – Anonymous
I was told my cat had only a few weeks to live by her regular vet. I went to Dr Lemmon, a naturopathic vet and he prescribed your product. He told me he also took it himself. I gave it to my cat mixed with chicken broth 3 times a day and she was so much better. I believe it kept her alive and feeling well for the next year. She eventually was over taken by her lymphoma but I am grateful for the time she got feeling well after beginning your product. – Anonymous
Phyllis has used the BioSuperfood 3 for over 6 months. It has helped her mental clarity, her arthritis and her energy. We would recommend the product. -Anonymous
I have always suffered from skin conditions, (eczema, psoriasis, etc.) for most of my life. As the cold weather approaches, my skin becomes very itchy, red, and hot. By this time, I would be very uncomfortable. Taking a shower would be painful. But I am not suffering from these symptoms. I started taking your product this past summer. I am happy to be itch free! – CC IL USA
Initially I was skeptical, but having chronic back pain and being on pain killers for 4 years led me to try BSF. It took about a year but I am now off all pain killers and experiencing many other benefits as well. My husband had an aggressive form of cancer 3 years ago. He had surgery, but not all the cancer was contained. With a change in diet, lifestyle and BioSuperfood, he is feeling great and is still in remission. We love BSF! – Jenny VanderBerg
As a multiple cancer survivor I feel that taking BioSuperfood has improved my general sense of well-being. At my age one does not expect to feel better with the passing years but I feel better than I did twenty years ago. Part of the reason must be that I am taking BioSuperfood although I am sure that Qi Gong and Tai Chi instructions by Sifu George Picard also earn plaudits. – Charles Bernard, St. Catharines, Ontario, Canada.
Great product. I feel much better with it than without it. – Anonymous
My 13+ yrs old Rhodesian Ridgeback’s health was not good. He had trouble fully digesting his food and had a terrible gas problem. His stool was loose about 80% of the time. Then I found BP+, which has improved his digestion and energy dramatically. He had surgery at 13 yrs of age, and I strongly believe he would not have recovered from this last surgery as quickly and easily as he did if he had not been taking BP+. – GC Wisconsin
As an Animal Wellness Consultant I cannot tell you how many animals I have seen improve their health on the BioNutrition products. Time and again with issues ranging from Immune Mediated Anemia to cloudy eyes, to digestion issues to tumors and allergies the animals get healthier. I have watched coats change within a week, arthritic animals move with greater ease, older animals perk up and a renewed vitality emerge. – Alecia Evans Animal Wellness Consultant
When I first started to use Biosuperfood my hands were so swollen I was unable to close them. People now say my hands are beautiful and I have no problems closing them. – Anonymous
One of my clients was diagnosed with cancer and was treated with 35 treatments of radiation. I gave him Biosuperfood according to Dr. Kiriac’s instructions. He lost no work and felt well throughout. – Anonymous
A homeopath recommended BioPreparation for my dog that had a personality change after receiving a vaccination. She became reactive – barking and growling at some dogs and people. BP has helped calm her down and therefore makes it much easier to walk her and take her places! In addition, because BP contains thousands of nutrients and antioxidants, I am more comfortable that she is getting the nutrients that her body needs for the best health possible. – Anonymous
In talking with Dr. Roland Thomas, he told me what to do to help with my sugar cravings; and, it works. My energy is stronger, I am exercising for the first time in years and the scale is dropping; so far, in 2 months, I have lost 13 lbs. I can’t save enough how absolutely that BSF 2 & 3 are healing all areas and creating well being. 125 years looks good; so, I can say I am just now in the prime of life at 65. Thanks for you and Dr. Kiriac, and, Team that continues to bring healing to the planet. – MJM
I have had Glaucoma for over ten years and my pressure never went below 18 even with drops. After two months on bio algae my pressure dropped to 11 in one eye and 9 in the other. I have been using two years now and my doctor is thrilled. Also I had a bone density test a few months ago. M GYN could not believe the difference since the last one and asked me what I was taking. I am 68 and the figures were much better than hers. – Anonymous
I give BioSuperfood to my cat who is 16. She was diagnosed with kidney failure, has reoccurring bladder infections with unknown cause, and has a cancerous growth on her leg. I was told to fee her Science Diet KD and it was KILLING her. Her hair started falling out and she was declining rapidly. I changed her to a grain free diet and included BioSuperfood in her diet. Now she has had no signs of bladder infection, she is more energetic, the cancer has stopped growing. I love this stuff! Thanks. – Anonymous
