Building Strong Immunity in the Last Days
Maintaining a strong and balanced immune system has
always been critical to the survival and success of mankind, but never more so
than today. We live in a world in which our God-given dominion has been
progressively compromised. Our soil nutrients have been largely stripped and
replaced with synthetic chemical isolates. Our genetically modified food supply
has been contaminated with pesticides, antibiotics and hormones.
Here in what is presumed to be the most modern and advanced of all
civilizations, we have abandoned the wholesome foods provided by our creator for
the convenience and excito-toxin enhanced taste of fast foods and
"man-ufactured" or processed foods. Unlike any generation before us, our bodies
are constantly being bombarded with chronic low level chemical toxicity,
electromagnetic and radiological exposures, and systematic poisoning from
pharmaceutical and other government subsidized industries.
Living in the information age with nonstop accessibility to and from a
virtually unlimited circle of people and influences greatly adds to our stress
level further compromising immunity. The constant, instantaneous demands on
our lives leave us with no down time and all too often, little time or energy
left for our most important relationships.
It is no wonder that America is sick and tired of being sick and tired!
What Can We Do?
Faced with these diverse challenges, what can we do to bolster our natural
defenses and strengthen our cellular energy systems? As individuals, our daily
choices determine the degree to which we avoid some of these exposures. Through
the Apostle Paul, God gave us some really good advice when he warned us to "be
not conformed to the patterns of this world (Romans 12:1). We can reject the
Standard American Diet of processed and fast foods that is responsible for the
U.S. leading the world in degenerative illness.
These nutrients are foundational to health; none more so thanprobiotics. The importance of beneficial
bacteria in the gut has finally reached the mainstream consciousness, but
unfortunately, most of the products being mass marketed today (it seems they are
everywhere now) lack the potency and/or coverage to have an appreciable impact.
The GI tract holds the vast majority of our immune cells, and it is there
that the ongoing battle for our health is won or lost. Therefore, every person
who wants to maximize their health and minimize their risk for illness should be
taking a broad spectrum, high potency probiotic likeEssential Flora.
Absolutely foundational. and probably the most important supplement that we
offer for such a time as this.
Why Do Fluoride and Chlorine Still Poison Our Municipal Water Quality?
The fact that fluoride and chlorine by products are still poisoning our
municipal water quality is a modern travesty of epic proportions. The
following article from Dr. Tom Termotto's blog is an eye opening
discussion of the indisputable facts behind the systematic poisoning of
our water supply with fluoride, chlorine and other toxins, and the
onerous price that we the people are paying for it. Read More
We Need Your Help!
You may have noticed there have been substantial changes made to the Logos website over the last couple of months.
I was utterly amazed at how many ways our site was missing the mark in terms of best practices for website visibility and marketing. Who knew that using "Welcome to Logos Nutritionals" as our home page header was costing us dearly in our search results?
Our website can only be a vehicle for life transformation to the degree it can be found by those who are searching for superior quality nutritional support and highly relevant health information.
We are still in the process of implementing changes that have been recommended to improve our site's organic search results, but what we need most in order for the Logos site to be considered more relevant to the search engines is for you to go out there in cyberspace and talk about Logos!
Specifically, we need you to post messages on open forums about your experiences with our products and where it is allowed, include a live link back to the Logos site... preferably to the page featuring the product you are talking about. Without adequate back link exposure, a website simply gets lost in the shuffle.
Feel free to contact me directly If you need help in learning how to post a live link. If you have not yet done so, please join our Facebook Fan Page and share it with your friends.
Thank you for your enthusiastic support of Logos. We cherish your feedback and covet your prayers, and we look forward to having the opportunity to serve your friends and family. May your efforts to help us spread the word about Logos be blessed a thousand fold!
Big Pharma Scores Big Win: Medicinal Herbs Will Disappear in EU
It's almost a done deal. We are about to see herbal preparations
disappear, and the ability of herbalists to prescribe them will also be
by Heidi Stevenson
12 September 2010
Big Pharma has almost reached the finish line of its
decades-long battle to wipe out all competition. As of 1 April 2011-less
than eight months from now-virtually all medicinal herbs will become
illegal in the European Union. The approach in the United States is a
bit different, but it's having the same devastating effect. The people
have become nothing more than sinks for whatever swill Big Pharma and
Agribusiness choose to send our way, and we have no option but to pay
whatever rates they want.
Big Pharma and Agribusiness have almost completed their march to take
over every aspect of health, from the food we eat to the way we care
for ourselves when we're ill. Have no doubt about it: this takeover will
steal what health remains to us.
Eatin' After Eden : The Meat of the Word - Sylvia W. Zook, MS, PhD This book is not only recommended, but required reading!Dr. Zook has put forth a life changing message of truth that reveals all we need to know about God's divine plan of dietary provision for us... especially in these last days.
She explores the link between the emergence of agribusiness and the sudden appearance of cardiovascular and other degenerative diseases. She forcefully exposes the greatest scam ever unleashed upon mankind; the so called Prudent Diet and the Lipid Hypothesis that has unfairly demonized cholesterol in order to sell billions of dollars worth of extremely hazardous drugs.
In an easily understood presentation, Dr. Zook reveals the shocking consequences of America's rejection of God's plan for eating after Eden - after Genesis 1:29 - and His specific instructions for our time. Believe me when I tell you that this is one of the most important books you will ever read!
is the most potent and advanced probiotic supplement now available. It
contains fifteen different strains of the most effective and
well-researched beneficial microorganisms needed by the human body.
Resident and transient strains of compatible flora are stabilized and
perfectly blended in natural proportion (unlike other broad-spectrum
formulas) to produce a uniquely powerful immune system supplement.
While most "High Potency" probiotic products contain only 1 to 5
billion viable cells per capsule, Essential Flora offers 15 BILLION active cultures per vegetable cap - guaranteed through the expiration date! * Dairy Free * Vegetarian Formula * Hypoallergenic What sets Essential Flora apart from other products? * Acid & Bile Resistant Strains * Room Temperature Stable Strains * GMP Standard Manufacturing * Vegetarian Capsules * Cold Processing Technology MORE
POSITIVE STRAINS MEANS MORE POSITIVE RESULTS!
THE UNSEEN WORLD WITHIN US: Inside
each of us is a vast ecosystem made up of billions of microorganisms.
They coexist, sometimes harmoniously, but often in conflict. This
unseen world is largely responsible for maintaining the body's vital
chemical and hormone balance. Resident friendly bacteria, or
"probiotics" form dense colonies on the mucosal surface of the
gastrointestinal tract, creating a protective barrier against
pathogens. By competing for space and nutrients, they safeguard us from
harmful viruses, bacteria, parasites and yeast. Transient probiotic
strains take up temporary residence in the GI tract as they are passing
through, but nonetheless perform critical functions in maintaining
health. Our bodies were designed to host both friendly and harmful
flora in a complex symbiotic relationship from which we normally enjoy
tremendous benefit. TROUBLE IN PARADISE: However, the delicate balance of power in the gut can be shifted dramatically by: * Antibiotics, NSAIDs and Corticosteroid drugs * Drinking chlorinated water, sodas and other carbonated beverages * Sugar, alcohol, caffeine and processed foods * Diet high in rich and fatty foods * Stress The
resulting disruption in gut ecology is known as dysbiosis, and can
quickly lead to serious health problems. In fact, some health
professionals believe that intestinal flora imbalance is the root cause
of up to 90 percent of all chronic illness! For centuries, wise
practitioners (and mothers) have addressed this problem with fermented
food products such as cultured yogurt, cottage cheese and buttermilk.
However, today's commercial food products may not contain adequate
amounts of beneficial bacteria, or they may be contaminated with other
unwanted ingredients. Probiotic supplements offer convenience,
therapeutic dosages and tangible benefits. Possible Benefits of Taking Essential Flora! Probiotics help to restore optimum microbial balance to the GI tract which may: * Strengthen the immune system * Enhance the production of B vitamins and enzymes to improve digestion * Promote the synthesis of natural antibiotic compounds * Inhibit the growth of unfriendly microbes * Alleviate skin conditions, allergies and chronic fatigue * Lower cholesterol levels * Relieve occasional diarrhea, gas or constipation * Lessen depression and mood swings * Reduce chronic yeast infections and dairy product sensitivities * Improve absorption of vital nutrients
What's in it For You?
This particular microorganism has the unique ability to eradicate the
dreaded Helicobacter pylori (H. Pylori) bacteria, which is considered a
major cause of peptic ulcers. It interferes with the normal defenses
against stomach acid and/or produces a toxin that contributes to peptic
ulcer formation. The traditional treatment involves antibiotics, but
this does not always eradicate to organism and is often accompanied by
harmful side effects. It can also become resistant to antibiotics. L.
salivarius was discovered by researchers to be able to produce a high
amount of lactic acid and thus completely inhibit the growth of H.
pylori and reduce associated inflammatory response. It is also
effective against pathogenic organisms such as Salmonella typhimurium. Lactobacillus casei-
this microorganism is reported in Microbiology and Immunology to have
the most potent protective activity against the potentially lethal
Listeria bacteria than any other bacteria. About %30 of those infected
with listeria die. Listeria bacteria infect shellfish, birds, spiders
and mammals (including cows) in all areas of the world. It is
transmitted to humans by direct contact with infected animals or their
secretions, by breathing infected dust, or through contact contaminated
sewage or soil. It is most commonly transmitted through consumption of
contaminated dairy products and raw vegetables. The most common form of
Listerosis is meningitis (infection of the membranes covering the brain
and spinal cord), which if left untreated can result coma and death. L.
casei is being studied for use as a vaccine against sexually
transmitted diseases, and also for use with tumors in cancer patients. Lactobacillus paracasei-
This lactic acid bacteria (LAB) is both acid and bile resistant and
thus survives the journey from the mouth through the gastrointestinal
tract and into the intestines very well. Recent research indicates that
L. paracasei is effective in the prevention and treatment of certain
types of diarrhea. Research studies also have focused on L. paracasei'
s ability to alter the activity of the intestinal micro flora, modulate
the immune system, and perhaps reduce the risk of some cancers. Bifidobacterium lactis-
Research studies have shown B. lactis has significant immunological
effects. This strain resists acid digestion and the action of bile
salts, survives intestinal transit and reaches the colon in significant
numbers. This strain also helps constipation, helps prevent diarrhea,
especially in children, and decreases chronic inflammation of the
sigmoid colon. In addition, its antimicrobial properties decrease the
effects of negative bacteria, especially clostridia. Lactobacillus brevis-
Research studies have shown that L. brevis decreases intestinal
permeability, improves intestinal microflora, and has a positive effect
on the intestinal immune system. L. rhamnosus-
This is one of the most thoroughly studied probiotic strains. Its
advantages in the treatment of gastrointestinal disorders are well
documented. It has been associated with the alleviation or prevention
of disorders such as lactose intolerance, viral and bacterial diarrhea,
adverse effectors of abdominal radiotherapy, constipation, inflammatory
bowel disease, and food allergy according to Applied Environmental
Microbiology, Jan. 1999. It has been shown to inhibit the growth of
tumors. It is an organism of human origin that survives in the
gastrointestinal tract, and has evidence proving its ability to inhibit
the formation of human colon cancers. L. rhamnosus has demonstrated an
increased resistance to vaginitis and urinary tract infections. More
recently, there has been evidence linking a lactobacilli vaginal
deficiency with sexually transmitted diseases including AIDS. It has
also been shown to inhibit the growth of a variety of bacterial
species. One researcher reports, "L. rhamnosus may be considered as one
of the most important lactobacilli, if not the best." Lactobacillus bulgaricus-
This bacteria is not a colonizer, but it is a great help to the
resident bacteria that set up colonies in your intestines. It is
especially famous for alleviating digestive problems and taming runaway
appetites, but everyone can benefit greatly from it. L. bulgaricus is
recommended for overall support of the friendly bacteria. It enhances
the digestibility of milk products and other proteins, helps to produce
natural antibiotic substances, and to clean the colon without
disrupting friendly bacteria. Lactobacillus gasseri-
This super strain has been shown to be the most effective against the
widest number of pathogens. It produces extremely effective natural
antibiotic substances that can inhibit 11 known disease-causing
bacteria. It has also been proven to inhibit yeast infections, improve
chronic constipation and/or diarrhea aid in nutrient uptake and prevent
food poisoning by targeting the harmful bacteria. The DDS strain is
highly recommended for overall daily maintenance. It fights candida
overgrowth, and is helpful to those with food, chemical or
environmental sensitivities. It adheres naturally to the walls of the
intestine without harming the intestinal wall. Streptococcus thermophilus-
The antioxidant activity of this strain scavenges the body for free
radicals which increase in the body as a result of aging, stress,
antibiotics, consumption of sugar, antibiotics, chlorinated water and
other chemicals and toxins. It displays anti tumor activity especially
as related to colon cancer cell growth. It has been shown to inhibit
ulcer formation in rats, and is effective in the treatment of diarrhea
as well as intestinal and vaginal infections. Bifidobacteria breve-
This unique microorganism proved effective in lowering cholesterol by
104 points in a three-month study performed at the G.B. Pant hospital
in New Delhi, India. There was a highly significant reduction in the
LDL cholesterol levels, and a small but significant increase in HDL
cholesterol levels. Use of this microorganism is an attractive
alternative to drug therapy since there are no side effects. It also
provides ? an excellent preventative effect against various diseases of
the intestine.? According to one researcher. Bifodobacteria longum-
Researchers report that B. longum was able to eliminate the nitrates
commonly found in foods ingested by humans. Normal levels of nitrates
ingested by humans not able to destroy this strain. It may also
significantly inhibit the development and growth of colon, liver and
breast cancers in laboratory animal models. Bifodobacteria bifidum-
This microorganism has the ability to protect the body against
rotavirus diarrhea and is a supportive therapy for intestinal
infections and intestinal disturbances. It has also been reported to
have immune strengthening properties, especially in relation to colon
health and its suppressive effect on tumors. It is well tolerated
without side effects, and reduces the inflammatory response of the
colon and stimulating the body? s fluid immunity. Bifidobacteria infantis-
This strain is part of an important group of microorganisms, which are
considered to exert a range of biological activities related to human
health. One aspect is the inhibitory effect of B. infantis on invasive
pathogenic bacteria such as E-coli. Results of studies show that it is
able to exert more than one mechanism of inhibition, which is important
with regard to protection of gastroenteritis. Although the mechanism of
the anti tumor activity is unclear, it clearly produces compounds with
anti proliferative activity useful in the prevention and therapy of
solid tumors like breast cancer. Lactobacillus plantarum-
This strain is the dominating bacterial species in most naturally
fermented foods. It is an excellent alternative to antibiotics, and
makes use of its potential to block receptor sites for gram-negative
bacteria. L. plantarum is capable of metabolizing semi resistant
fibers, such as onions, garlic, artichoke, wheat, oat, rye, bacteria
bananas, and yeast. It is also an important tool in anti-microbial
defense and is effective both against extra-and intercellular pathogens. Lactobacillus acidophilus-
By far the most important bacterial resident of the small intestine is
L. acidophilus. This is the colonizer, the inhabitant that constitutes
the first line of defense against alien invaders as well as
opportunistic organisms like yeasts. It even helps to keep your heart
healthy by lowering the levels of cholesterol in the blood. When
present in significant numbers, they prevent pathogens form lining the
intestinal walls. If too many colonies of intestinal bacteria build up,
nutrient absorption can be blocked. Fortunately, when the walls are
crowded with acidophilus colonizers, there is no room for newcomers.
For a Healthier Heart,
Stronger Bones and Optimal Aging
MagnifiCal is a
revolutionary mineral and herbal complex that is designed to provide
multi-dimensional support for the body. In addition to providing
magnesium and other nutrients that are critical to healthy muscle
function (including our most important muscle, the heart), MagnifiCal provides outstanding
support for strong bones and teeth. Most importantly, MagnifiCal contains nutrients that are
known to support the absorption, transport and utilization of calcium
out of the soft tissues and back into the bone where it belongs. How Can This
Be? A Bone Health Formula With no Calcium? Contrary to popular belief, most Americans with bone loss do
not have diets that are grossly deficient in calcium. What they do have
is impaired calcium absorption due in large part to magnesium
deficiency. Thinning of bones (demineralization) and corresponding
calcification of soft tissues is one of the benchmarks of the aging
process. The leaching of calcium and other minerals from the bones in
order to maintain blood pH and neutralize acid wastes catches up with us
in the form of osteoporosis, arteriosclerosis (hardening of the
arteries), hormonal imbalances and a multitude of other ailments. Magnesium -
Most Common Mineral Deficiency It is
estimated that up to eighty percent of Americans are magnesium
deficient... and since magnesium is involved in over 300 metabolic
functions, the signs and symptoms are everywhere. Not only have modern
farming techniques depleted our soils and food sources of magnesium, but
our poor lifestyle choices (alcohol, caffeine, refined carbs, high
stress) place us further at peril. The need for magnesium and calcium supplementation is well
established today, but typical Cal/Mag products (with their poorly
absorbed mineral forms presented in the wrong ratios) are woefully
inadequate. In fact, long term consumption of excessive calcium
(especially in relation to magnesium) can lead to a buildup in the
urinary tract and gall bladder (kidney and gall stones), and in other
soft tissues. Rather than introducing massive
quantities of poorly absorbed calcium into the body in hopes of it being
assimilated and properly excreted (which is what modern and even
alternative medicine is doing), MagnifiCal seeks to regulate calcium metabolism
itself. Therefore, those who understand how the body uses bone
minerals to regulate various body systems recognize MagnifiCal as the ultimate anti-aging
has been specially developed with natural source minerals in their most
concentrated and highly absorbed forms to provide the body with easy
access to the critical nutrients necessary for bone growth and repair.
In order to maximize absorption and synergy, multiple forms of magnesium
are combined along with zinc, strontium, and boron. Vitamin B-6 (along
with magnesium) inhibits the precipitation of excess calcium out of body
fluids, thus retarding the formation of stones. The average American is getting about 800 mg of calcium per
day from their diet, so megadosing with calcium (especially poorly
absorbed forms like carbonate) is not necessary as long as sufficient
magnesium is being consumed. Calcium carbonate (which is what is used in
the vast majority of calcium supplements) is only about 10%
bio-available because it is not water soluble. So if you take 1500 mg of
calcium carbonate you are only getting 150 mg of calcium at best
anyway. MagnifiCal is designed
to enhance the absorption and appropriate utilization of calcium in the
body, driving calcium out of the soft tissues and back into the bone. Vitamins D-3 and K-2 greatly influence
the absorption, transport and utilization of calcium in the body. In
fact, vitamin K-2 (MagnifiCal
contains an advanced form called menaguinone-7) is necessary for the
production of osteocalcin, the glue-like protein that binds calcium into
the bone matrix. Silicon, another key bone matrix mineral, is provided
through the addition of horsetail extract. Bromelain, Betaine and
Bioperine have been added for their proven ability to enhance systemic
absorption of nutrients. For
obvious reasons, this product may hold vast potential in the field of
anti-aging medicine. MagnifiCal
completes the Burgstiner Wellness
Protocol on the same terms it began ten years ago... with an
avant guarde, outside the box kind of supplement that addresses
foundational pathways of human metabolism. Caution: Persons with known
kidney impairment should use caution in taking magnesium supplements and
should do so only under the advice and care of their medical
practitioner. To learn more about the role of
strong bones in your health, read the Strong
Bones article on this site.
