Dear John,

It's no secret these are uncertain times. From Wall Street to Main Street, the uncertainty is affecting all of us in one way or another. As if we didn't have enough to worry about already, this stress is adding to our already full plates. Although we can't do much to alleviate your fears about the economy, US Wellness Meats can help you manage the stress by providing excellent Omega-3 rich nutrition for you and your family.

You can rest easy knowing that each and every product you purchase from US Wellness Meats has been raised and handled with care. Our mission is to provide the most pure, clean, delicious and nutritious foods on the planet, making what to feed your family one less thing you need to worry about.

Stock up and save - and feel good about what you feed your family!

This weekend, we encourage you to take a few moments and forget about Wall Street, turn off the political ads, and instead focus on the great things about fall in America: family, friends, college football, the beauty of changing leaves, the crisp cool air, bonfires, apples, pumpkins, mums, and a hearty warm stew or roast.

    Hi Dr. Serrano,

    I am 58 years old and was diagnosed with a blood-based form of lymphoma almost three years ago. I currently visit my oncologist every three months and am doing fine. I am a proactive type of person and want to do everything I can to maintain the lifestyle necessary to avoid cancer treatments if at all possible. I have always been in very good shape and have led an active lifestyle. I am 5'11" tall and normally weigh 155-160 pounds.

    My personal regimen includes taking beta glucan to enhance my immune system, barley grass tablets to provide enzymes and alkalinity, and for breakfast, a mixture of flax oil and cottage cheese (along with blueberries, strawberries and chopped almonds) which has been proven to help oxygenate one's cells. I also drink "Essiac Tea," if you are familiar with that, three times a day.

    I have always eaten pretty healthily but since the beginning of the year part of my "anti-cancer" protocol has involved a strict change in diet. I now avoid all sugar, dairy products (except for the cottage cheese, which loses it's dairy properties when thoroughly mixed with the flax oil anyway), gluten and processed foods entirely. I eat grass-fed beef about four times a week and free range chicken at least once a week. I eat lots and lots of vegetables and some fruit as well. With all the research I have done in this area I have come to the conclusion that, somewhat by default, I am probably following the "Caveman Diet," if you are familiar with that.

    I figure I am consuming about 2500 calories a day and taking in about 55 grams of fiber per day. The problem is that I have lost about 12 pounds since the beginning of the year. I don't want to lose weight, I just want to be healthy. My oncologist assures me that my weight loss is not related to the lymphoma and is most likely a result of my "diet." I feel great but now weigh only 147 pounds. How can I get back to my normal weight in a healthful manner? I have noticed that pemmican bars contain about 400 calories. Could I safely and healthily eat a couple of those a day to add some calories? On a side note, it strikes me that pemmican bars probably could have been part of the "Caveman Diet" in his day.

    Any ideas you have would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much for this opportunity.


    Dear John:

    Congratulations, John. You are doing an incredible job by taking your health in your own hands. I usually do not believe in chemotherapy or radiation but I do recommend these treatments for some types of cancers, because they do work, and lymphoma is one of them. You didn't tell me how active you are, just that you are very active, and that is a very important detail. John, I am very familiar with all your supplements and I would like you to add two more: Vitamin D, about 5000 IU; and CoQ10, about 200 mgs, because recent research showed their anticancer properties.

    John, the cottage cheese doesn't lose its properties if you add flax seed oil; I wouldn't use flax seed oil because of your age and your condition. I prefer cod liver oil or alpha omega 3, due to the decrease in the enzymes that convert the flax into the active form; however, flax seeds are okay.

    John, based on your weight and height you are skinny, but besides calories, the other way to gain healthy weight is by one or two things: weight lifting and increasing fat intake, not with polyunsaturated fats like flax, but with monounsaturated and saturated fats from organic sources, including nuts, coconut oil, eggs, pemmican bars, and real organic beef. In addition, your caloric intake is that of an elderly lady so you are under eating and you must eat more if you want to gain weight. John, if you feel good and have no symptoms, why worry so much about your weight? You stated you feel great, so why gain weight?

    Good luck,
    Dr. Eric Serrano
