Dear John,    

Happy New Year


Happy New Year!  Welcome to 2012 and best of wishes for a prosperous year.  Here at US Wellness we have set a few goals for the new year in order to better serve you - our customers.  We truly appreciate all of your patronage during 2011 and look forward to providing high quality grass-fed products for another year.   


What are your goals for the new year?  Too many of us make the same resolutions every year - to eat better, to exercise more, to lose weight before summer...and we usually fail within a month.  This year many of us have decided to set one particular goal and write down the plan to achieve it.  In our past several newsletters we have tried to offer new ideas on how to improve health and wellness in 2012.  So if you need some new ideas, here are some article recaps:  

For more ideas, try Mark's Daily Apple's 30-Day Challenge, go Paleo, join a CrossFit gym, support our troops, donate to a local school, go green, support a local farmer, become a better cook, or remove toxins from your home - read Dr. Morrison's article below to find out how!  We'd love to hear your unique resolutions for the new year, and we'll pay you to share!  Head over to Facebook and share your New Year's resolutions and one lucky reader will win a $100 US Wellness gift certificate.  Winner will be drawn this Friday, January 6, so don't wait!


One of the best ways to kick off a new year is to consider your diet.  Your health, mood and weight can all improve simply by removing sugary, processed foods from your diet.  We've tried to make it easy to stock up on clean meal ideas this week - the Short Rib bulk box is on sale, along with the versatile Coulotte Steak and for a great snack try the Turkey Jerky Sticks!   


If saving money is on the agenda for the new year be sure to take advantage of our bulk discounts.  For every 40 lbs you order, we'll automatically take $25.00 off your total order.  So if your order weighs at least 80 lbs we'll take $50.00 off!   


No matter what your new year resolutions may be, we have the products, resources and savings to keep you motivated and achieve success in your health and wellness goals and we are honored for the opportunity to be part of your success. 


New Year's Wishes, 

John, Lee Ann, Tressa, Jennifer and Amanda on behalf of the farm families of U.S. Wellness Meats

Question and Answer Column

Dr. Eric Serrano


Hello Dr. Serrano,    


I have been Paleo for 5 months and my new 'diet' includes much more red meat ("organic") and shrimp than previous. Oddly I had high cholesterol (don't remember the numbers) when I ate less red meat.

Now - that I have kicked it up somewhat, how can I be sure that my cholesterol will not become elevated-which concerns me. Several Paleo colleagues have responded but I have yet to hear a definitive answer. Your response is welcomed.


P.S. I take a daily supplements of garlic, C B-complex, E and fish oil



Dear Rich,  


God is awesome, so the body is awesome.  By adding more fat to your diet, your body doesn't need to make as much cholesterol as your body needs, so the body machinery for making cholesterol is turned down.  The extra fat in the diet provides the cholesterol it needs and uses it for hormones, enzymes, structures, joints, vitamins, etc. Keep eating the way you are eating now - it is a way of life. 


People that eat low fat usually are fat because the body requires fat - but doesn't get the fat it needs, just hydrolyzed junk - too many omega-6s and it has to save it for the wrong reasons.  

Good Luck, 


Dr. Serrano

Eliminating Toxins in Your Home

By: Jeffrey Morrison, MD
An excerpt from Cleanse Your Body, Clear Your Mind

While it's nearly impossible to affect the majority of environmental toxins found in our air, water, and food supply, it's easy to control what we bring into our homes.  Unfortunately, many of our homes are just as polluted as the outdoors.  Yet by recognizing the potential problems and making lifestyle changes that address them, you can create a safe, nontoxic haven in your home.

Indoor Air Pollutants

Believe it or not, indoor air can be even more polluted than outdoor air, even in the largest industrialized cities.  This is very important to recognize because we spend as much as 90% of our time indoors.  Additionally, the people who are the most susceptible to symptoms caused by indoor pollutants - the young, elderly, and chronically ill- are the ones most likely to spend the majority of their time inside.

Indoor air is dangerous for two primary reasons: pollutants and poor ventilation.  Indoor air pollution can come from home heating and cooling systems, tobacco and cigarette smoke, building material outgassing, asbestos, mold from water damage, furniture made from processed woods, household cleaners, personal care products, and air fresheners, as well as from outdoor sources, that can become trapped indoors.  Many times the air is not significantly affected by many one of these sources, but when multiple sources are added together, their individual affects can be multiplied and we can become sick.

Ventilation is an issue because new houses are built to be literally air-tight, in compliance with building codes aimed at reducing the costs of heating and cooling.  While we're saving money, air pollutants multiply in our poorly ventilated homes like garbage in a wastebasket.

One way to improve indoor air quality without opening the windows and letting new toxins in is by using an air purifier that can remove pollutants like pollen, dust, chemicals, and bacteria.  There are many different types on the market, each with useful characteristics...
