Vaccine, or Not? – BAC, a Breed Apart
The Martial Art of Wellness
Volume 10 -November 2011
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
THIS ISSUE’S TESTIMONIAL:
my absolute favorite by a million
“There are lots of greens on the market today, my absolute favorite by a million is called BioSuperfood, technically a whole-food product, but more like nature’s vitamin chest in a bottle. They call it “the culmination in cellular nutrition” and I don’t doubt it. Because it literally contains thousands of individual nutrients in a highly usable form, I’ve kissed most other supplements goodbye, and don’t’ miss them one bit. I’ve never loved a greens product more (and my wallet seems happier, too!).” – Janet Podleski, Food Network host and author of the bestselling cookbooks Looneyspoons, Crazy Plates and Eat, Shrink & Be Merry!
MARTIAL ART OF WELLNESS ( Vaccine, or Not? )
To vaccine, or not to vaccine, that is the question that I would like to help you with this month. As warriors in the Martial Art of Wellness, we must strive to remember (and be reminded) about our boundless wellness potential. For a starter, I truly believe that wellness is increased with each breath, “IF” you are conscious of it.
This month, I want to weaken the position of the medical system’s regarding the flu vaccine, remind you of the power exerted by the manufacturers of these vaccines, and the strong influence of the medias when promoting their agenda.
Vaccination campaigns are full on
They are everywhere! It is impossible to walk into a medical clinic or pharmacy without seeing pushers of the flu shots. In some locations, you can even get vaccinated at the supermarket. If you feel like the flu shot is being pushed on you the way a used car salesman might push a 20 year old clunker with bad tires, it is because that is exactly what is happening.
This year like every year, an aggressive TV ad campaign is underway to get as many people as possible vaccinated for the flu. Sadly, none of these ads informs you that a healthy body is highly capable of defending itself against bacterial and viral threats.
Vaccines weaken your immune system
Did you know that when you choose vaccinations to prevent the flu, you actually weaken your immune system? Vaccination appeals to your inclination for easy and convenient. How often do you hand wash dishes once you’ve installed a dishwasher? Unfortunately, a lazy immune system is going to leave you with far greater problems than just spotty dishes. When the immune system is weakened as the result of vaccinations, your body is more susceptible to getting sick from diseases for which there are no vaccinations. In fact vaccinations often do more harm than good.
Vaccines are worthless and plain dangerous
(Click here to read extensive information available)
The theory of vaccinations is to induce a little of the illness to prevent the big illness. In case of the flu, the vaccine creator starts with an already past strain, and since the strain keeps mutating, the vaccine is not able to prevent the new strains. The known truth is that vaccination is not the marketed cure-all, and its side effects are often more dangerous than the flu itself. Even visiting the clinic for the shot puts you in grave danger; this year alone, in the Niagara region, “over 35 persons have died from C. difficile colitis while visiting a hospital or clinic for unrelated reason. Add to that the fact that vaccines always contain traces of chemicals. You may be taxing your body with mercury and other dangerous toxins in the vaccine! Your body, exposed to a vaccination, is now further weakened and less capable of defending itself when it needs to the most.
Even conventional “experts” question flu vaccines
Many people in the medical community are realizing that the flu shot is far from a miracle prevention or cure. The prestigious Lancet medical journal recently published an analysis showing the annual flu vaccine to be far from effective. CTV (Canada) recently reported, “While the vaccine may work in some cases, and we still recommend that it be used, it does not demonstrate the kinds of efficacy levels we have reported in the past.” The report’s lead author Michael T. Osterholm says that “the most widely used vaccine in the United States has proven to be less than 60% effective.”
THE GREATER GOOD looks behind the fear, hype and politics that have polarized the vaccine debate in America today. The film re-frames the emotionally charged issue and offers, for the first time, the opportunity for a rational and scientific discussion on how to create a safer and more effective vaccine program.
Another report in US News stated, “Over the past two flu seasons, vaccinating children five years old and younger did not reduce the number of child hospitalizations or doctor’s visits linked to influenza, according to results of a new study.”
Are there other ways to deal with the flu?
The flu and other viruses will always be. So how do you defend against flu and other illnesses, many of which are viral? The answer is simpler than you think – INCREASE YOUR VITALITY AND RESILIENCE! It requires lifestyle changes; diet and other natural immune-boosting life adjustments, in the end, these are the best things you can do for your overall health. Not only will you be more resistant to head colds and flu, you will also ward off diseases and chronic illnesses. The stronger your body becomes, the easier it will be to maintain good health, even in a world with so many threats.
There is a big push lately for vaccination against HPV, and more recently there is a push to vaccinate young boys for HPV. Even if different than the flu vaccine, I want to share this next case as I think it quite relevant. Once you understand the natural way to prevent infection, it does not matter so much what the virus or bacteria is. The answer is the same – INCREASE YOUR VITALITY AND RESILIENCE!
The HPV virus went away
Hello Roland, Recall, I was diagnosed with the HPV virus two yeas ago, then after a colposcopy of the cervix performed in January, my doctor said I had dysplasia of cervix and that it will require a LEEP procedure to cut out a part of my cervix. I was so scared and even thought about doing it. After talking with you, you told me to get a second opinion, wait a few months, eat better, and to take the algae capsules regularly.
Well, I did listen, and now seven months later I have great news!! I went to my new doctor Monday for my latest test results. Everything came back normal! The HPV virus went away along with the precancerous cells I had. I am so happy! I started crying when I heard the news. Finally nearing two years all is gone. I am and will continue to be ever so grateful to you all for your product. ” Vanessa, USA – October 13, 2011
How can you increase your vitality and life force?
There are so many things that you can do to improve your life force and immunity without relying on vaccines or pharmaceuticals. Here is are few of the biggies:
Feed your body pure foods – A diet of high energy foods is best; eat mostly fresh plants, leafy greens and fruits, and lots of it raw is even better. It is a fact that unconsciously eating the traditional western diet makes most people lose their energy and hormone balance, become nutrient deficient, often overweight, and then sicker. While when improving your diet, you will give your body the nutrients and energy it needs, and you will immediately feel the differences, and tangibly become healthier each day.
Eliminate toxic substances – Fortunately, when you begin consuming better foods, the desire to indulge in toxic substances and foods will diminish quickly. As you change, you will be less hungry for them, and over time, your addictions and cravings will be reduced and even eliminated.
Reduce stress and increase rest – Most people underestimate stress and often stress will get the best of them. They eat poorly, neglect exercise, sleep suffers, and their outlook on life is dim. There is a direct connection between attitude and your immunity. A positive attitude and taking control of your diet and stress will create immediate positive differences in your wellness.
Shake, shake, shake – Exercises is like turning the blender switch “ON”, it increases every cell’s oxygenation potential and metabolic performance; the cells are rendered better at processing food, eliminating poisons, detoxing, repair and renewal, protection from viruses, and better yet at its specialized contribution whether as a muscle cell, a synapse or spermatozoid. Exercising regularly helps your cardiovascular life, increases your immunity and brain function, is anti-depression, and makes you sleep better. Whether you do yoga, tai chi, qi gong, run or swim, just find a way to make exercice part of the fabric of your day. Just like with eating, it’s better to exercise in small amounts and frequently.
Awaken the Genius Within
Absolutely! Thousands of people who consume BAC have noticed that they no longer come down with the annual flu or cold. Complementing your diet with a few capsules of Bio-Algae Concentrates on a daily basis supplies your body with rare essential nutrients and antioxidants not available in ordinary food. There are hundreds of nutrients in BAC; vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids, enzymes, phytochemicals, extraordinary antioxidants, and many more that helps your brain and immune system to become and stay strong.
It is said that BAC “awakens the brain within the brain”, that is; BAC increases the performance of the cells that make up the hypothalamus-pituitary axis (HPA) in our brain, the all mighty regulator of all metabolisms. And when the HPA performs better, all body metabolisms have no choice but to also perform better. In turn, better metabolic performance will protect your body from viruses, from free radicals and other environmental pollutants and stressors. Read more online about at “The Magic is BAC”
Be a Ninja!
As a Warrior in the Martial Art of Wellness, if you want to stay healthy and avoid the flu without the risks associated with vaccines, choose to boost your immunity and life force in natural ways. Know that every choice you make will either increase or lower your immunity.

MARTIAL ART OF WELLNESS – II ( BAC, a Breed Apart )
In the past two months, I have been asked to provide my opinion of Dr. Mercola’s recent articles and marketing blitz’s about astaxanthin, spirulina, chlorella, and a new private blend of his making, a mix of spirulina and astaxanthin. Because of the insistence and volume of your requests I have decided to provide a comparative response in lieu of an opinion which might be biased and/or perceived as such. And I will use either the generic term, or the ingredient name rather than the commercial names for my comparison. There are so many products on the market today. Are there ways to tell the difference? I think so. You have to be smart about it, look under the hood, ask the questions, ask for relevant research, dig deep… it’s your life you’re dealing with, not your car. Reading this article will help you in your future choices of food and supplements.
Bio-Algae Concentrates, a Breed Apart
Uniquely formulated Bio-Algae Concentrates (BAC) blends are a breed apart from any single algae such as spirulina, chlorella, or partial extracts such as astaxanthin. Unseen with any drug, food, supplement, or other algae, BAC has extraordinary efficiencies at nourishing cells of the brain, leading to an awakening of the sluggish hypothalamic-pituitary axis (HPA), the regulator of all organ, system and cellular metabolisms in the animal and human bodies, in turn leading to extraordinary protection, prevention, repair and regenerative benefits.
What is BAC?
BAC are blends of precisely proportioned algae selected amongst the hundreds investigated by Dr. Michael Kiriac during 15 years of intensive research mandated by the Academy of Science of the former Soviet Union. He and his team were looking for solutions to low productivity and cancer epidemics in the livestock industry of the former Soviet Union.
BAC contains the following four algae totaling thousands of nutrients, more nutrients per gram than any other food:
- Spirulina Pacifica (ocean strain) and Platensis (lake strain), are naturally occurring algae that have the largest amount of proteins, vitamins, minerals, trace elements, enzymes, etc., more than any other food on earth.
- Haematoccocus Pluvialis with high level of lutein, zeaxanthin and astaxanthin, the most efficient amongst carotenoids known to not only transverse the blood brain barrier (BBB), but the only three that can truly transverse the blood retinal barrier (BRB)
- Dunaliella Salina is a mono-cellular alga that contains the highest known concentration of beta-carotene on earth: approximately 10% of the base algae weight. Dunaliella has been used in anti-cancer research showing reduction of tumors and cancer cells. It is exceptionally high in vitamin C, which complements Spirulina’s low vitamin C content.
Why not take just astaxanthin as it is so powerful?
Since Dr. Kiriac introduced BAC in America 12 years ago, people have asked this question, and some have tried plain store bought astaxanthin stand alone, and others have gone further making their own blend with store bought algae. Most came back to using BAC, when they were not obtaining results.
There are many reasons why taking a single separate carotenoid like astaxanthin, or some other mix will not deliver the results that BAC consistently delivers. Hundreds of clinicians assisted by hundreds of farm aids took more than 10 years investigating hundreds of algae. They the tested hundreds of different permutation and proportioned blends. In the process they also discovered new growing technologies that augmented the quality and the yield of the algae. They were able to prove their findings with over 20 species of animals in hundred of test groups, culminating in several large trials totaling more than one million animals. Dr. Kiriac was on to astaxanthin in 1975, testing it separately, learning its potentials, trialing it in many ways, and realizing its intense and short lived benefits. When used as a separate, he also learned its inability to stabilize and obtain remission of cancers and other diseases. While by 1979, when astaxanthin was included in BAC, along with many other powerful carotenoids, they finally obtained the results they were looking for; prevention, stabilization and remission of cancers in the many species tested. Dr. Kiriac says that during those years, he realized the the full meaning of the saying “the whole is larger than the sum of its parts”, and many other lessons:
The lessons learned during those long years of research are applied in BAC as described further in this article;
- completeness over isolates and separates (i.e. plate of mix fresh foods, asian style, over plain steak and potatoes)
- balance and frequency of intake over infrequent large doses (eating six small meals increases by 25% the lifespan of rats, while one large meal decreases their lifespan by 25%)
- synergies obtained with nutrient diversity over the force of large dose of single nutrients or cocktails (mixed foods rich in several carotenoids and antioxidants with moderate orac values delivers more antioxidative and anti-inflammatory protection than a single food with a high orac value)
- efficiencies of whole food in its natural form over separates (i.e. 23 milligrams of vitamin C obtain when eating a red pepper is tremendously more nutritionally functional than 1000 milligrams of ascorbic acid from a vitamin C pill.)
Why is BAC not available in powder form?
The efficiency of BAC is such that it should not be consumed in larger amount than per directions whereby the capsule serving size can be easily measured and controlled by the user. It is not like a plain spirulina algae that can be eaten by the spoonful. Some former users of blue-green algae or spirulina that used to eat between 10 to 20 grams per day, have realized that they derive more results from eating only one to three grams of BAC. Under Health Canada certification, the current capsule size cannot be altered unless a new application is filed.
Why is BAC not available in tablet form?
There is no organic way to stabilize freeze dried algae powder into a tablet without the use of one form or another of chemical stabilizer.
Why is there no Chlorella in BAC?
Many have asked why is there no chlorella in BAC. When I asked Dr. Kiriac that question 12 years ago, he said that they had closely studied the chlorella alga for one year, before arriving at the decision to exclude it. They observed that it was efficient with some animal species that synthesize the cellulase digestive enzymes, like cows, sheep, etc, while it was inefficient with species that do not metabolize the cellulase enzymes, like rats, pigs, and we humans. The cellulase enzyme is required in order to breakdown chlorella’s hard cellulose content. When I asked him about “broken cell wall”, he explained that breaking the cell, destroys its molecular integrity and protection, exposing the loose organelles to microbial infestation, and that even when cracked, the hard cellulose content remains a digestive burden. When they subsequently selected two spirulina strains, their research progressed rapidly with all the species tested.
How is BAC different from other algae?
The specific algae selected for BAC, grown and nurtured in extraordinary settings, when blended in precise proportions offer completeness, balance, synergies, and consistencies unseen in any other algae or algae mix.
- the four algae combined in BAC provide an amount of the largest number of nutrients found in the smallest size possible (i.e. all known amino acids, all known minerals and trace elements, some of all vitamins, fatty acids, dozens of the best carotenoid, thousands of enzymes, other phytonutrients, extraordinary mixed chlorophylls, and more.
- the algae are grown using volcanic thermal spring waters rich in all known minerals and trace elements, and other known and unknown nutrients, many unavailable in any soil, lake, ocean or lagoon – (i.e. one single alga can only collect what is available in its growing environment – typical surface lake, lagoon or ocean algae may contain in the best of cases 40 to 60 minerals, that is when not impacted by pollution, sun damages, and other seasonal factors like rain, wind, waves, etc.)
- the closed system “bioreactor”, is a perfect growing and nurturing environment, and when combined with the rich spring waters and advanced hydroponic technologies (perfect use of LUX – light) innovated during the long years of research, the algae are boosted and yield many more nutrients than when grown in conventional open wild lake, lagoon or ocean settings, where they suffer loss for combating water and airborne pollutions, seasonal wind and rain, and even UV damages due to opening in the ozone layer.
Balance or imbalance in our food is a function of which food in which quantity we mix, and / or eat together in one serving, and is very much a factor when it comes to proper assimilation, absorption and utilization of food consumed. With macro food like carrots and potatoes, this is known as food combining and there is scientific evidence showing that a well-combined meal can be better absorbed, and cause less digestive problems (i.e. constipation and gas when consuming a large slice of watermelon immediately following the consumption of steak and potatoes). That same science is much more relevant when it comes to combining micro algae that may contain thousands of nutrients and trillions of molecules. During years of research on BAC, causes of imbalance or balance were identified when using different algae combinations. Many of these discoveries are applied to the blends as we know them today. (i.e. The Dunaliella alga in BAC brought balance, not only for its extraordinary mixed carotenoids, but especially for its high vitamin C content typically lacking in Spirulina’s. Note that vitamin C is a critical component in proper assimilation of other nutrients in human and other species.)
Synergies are those extraordinary biochemical or energetic quantum phenomena’s that make the whole greater than the sum of its parts, that make a team of people achieve impossible feats when working together. On the microscopic molecular and atomic levels, synergies can lead to quantum results. Einstein proved that when applying the formula E=MC2 (Energy equal mass multiplied by the square of the speed of light), that the energy potential delivered by the weight of the hydrogen molecules (100 grams) contained in one gallon of pure water was equivalent to that of several hundred thousand gallons of gasoline. It is synergy that may explain why in the Soviet Union, and currently on Canadian farms, when dairy cows are fed one (1) gram of BAC daily, will yield four (4) gallons (5,000 grams) more milk daily, and reduce their daily protein feed by 500 grams: 1 gram of BAC, minus 500 grams of feed, equal 5000 additional grams of milk. Read about this research at The Magic is BAC. Many other synergistic effects were discovered and applied during the Soviet research years.
The definition of Organic foods on Wikipedia: are foods that are produced using methods that do not involve modern synthetic inputs such as synthetic pesticides and chemical fertilizers, do not contain genetically modified organisms, and are not processed using irradiation, industrial solvents, or chemical food additives. Interestingly in this definition there is no mention of the richness or depletion of the soil, lake, lagoon, or environment in which the growth occur, factor likely contributing the most to weather a food is organic or not, given the true definition of organic; of, relating to, or derived from living matter: “organic soils”. Fruits, vegetables, herbs, and algae, can only gather in their makeup what is contained in their growing environment. A “certified organic” tomato grown free of herbicides, and grown in a nutrient poor soil will be less beneficial than a “non-certified” tomato grown in a nutrient rich soil even if some herbicides is used. Organic certification has become lately a loosely controlled marketing affair, while the total sense in organic is ignored.
BAC as it is grown today is likely the most meriting food of the “organic” label. As opposed to being grown in a “depleted” environment, BAC is grown in a “most nutrients rich” environment, from mineral dense thermal spring waters taken directly at geysers sourced from two thousand feet below a volcanic peninsula, 100% the opposite of “depleted”, which explains why it is the most nutrient dense algae blend on earth at this time.
What about the new pollutants in our waters, known and unknown, for which there are no test yet?
There are over 25,000 different species of algae in the world—some are toxic but many are beneficial to all living creatures. Dr Kiriac believes there is no natural body of water on Earth (including the Arctic and Antarctic Oceans) that is not polluted to some extent. Contamination of polychlorinated hydrocarbons (PCHC), aldrin, heptachlor, heptachlorepoxide, lindane, DDE and PCB has been found in tissues samples of Arctic seals. Polar bears, polar foxes and sheep from southwest Greenland. Dr. Kiriac, therefore, will not use any lake, ocean, manmade lagoon, or any wild grown algae in his BAC products. Many manufacturers claim that they test their lake or wild grown algae for commonly known toxins and contaminants. But what about the so many new and unknown pollutants in our waters for which there are no tests for yet? In 1986, after the Chernobyl explosion, too ensure the strictest quality and maintain full control over the growing environment, Dr Kiriac has chosen to grow his algae in enclosed bioreactor systems away from any pollution. This innovation allows protection from lake and airborne pollutants like radioactivity, fish and bird excrements, mercury, PCB, even from UV damages. The algae in BAC are grown without the use of synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides and without antibiotics, growth hormones, and without preservatives or additives of any sort.
The current commercial version of BAC has received Health Canada Certification and NPN (Natural Product Numbers). This certification involves a long application process with analysis of the ingredient and their nutrients by independent laboratories, demonstration of the rational of the different formulas, verification of the growth, harvest, preservation, blending, encapsulation and bottling steps as declared by the applicant, an independent verification of the manufacturing facilities. This certification implies that each lot of the final products (not just randomly selected) used in BAC is tested according to Health Canada requirements (the U.S. equivalent to the F.D.A.) for bacteria, herbicides, pesticides, heavy metals and other contaminants.
You can be assured that BAC never contains any of the toxic algae species since they are grown in closed and totally controlled bioreactors, not in the wild. Everything from the water, nutrients, light, heat, and turbulence is done under Dr Kiriac’s direct supervision. This controlled environment is another reason why BAC is so unique in the algae product market. From over 20 years of research Dr. Kiriac has learned what light, heat, the ambient air, and water conditions are necessary to concentrate the nutrients of the algae. The concentration of nutrients in Dr Kiriac’s algae and their purity far exceeds that of any wild or lagoon grown algae. Dr Kiriac’s algae are more nutritional and have a much greater potential to awaken the cell’s own natural ability to heal than any other known algae products.
The culmination in cellular nutrition
In summary, BAC is 100% natural, organic, complete, balance and synergistic — all this safely, without any toxicity, nor any contra indication, nothing artificial (as opposed to manmade formulations of isolates or separates). The “Concentrates” in Bio-Algae Concentrates means that each algae cell delivers 99% of its nutrient potential due to the nurturing technologies, and nutrient rich and pure environment. It is estimated that all open air lagoon or lake grown alga accuse significant nutrient loss, and may yield anywhere between 30% and 65% of its potential due to the depleted nutrients and significant pollution found in most lagoons or lakes on earth at this time. It is those unfortunate factors that stem the growth of the sensitive algae in achieving its full potential.
In providing the body and brain this extraordinary efficient nutrition, BAC assists the body in its prevention and resolution of cellular exhaustion and resulting health issues. BAC is extremely efficient at nourishing and energizing the cells that make up the brain within the brain (the hypothalamus-pituitary axis), resulting in increased regulation of all our metabolisms and functions; cellular, systemic, glandular, organs, etc.; this “culmination in cellular nutrition” is what makes BAC the most efficient nutritional on the market today.
