New Customer Service Manager; Fresh Beef;
Mystery Disease is America's Hidden Epidemic

September 30,  2007

Dear John,

U.S. Wellness would like to introduce Linda Wilson as our new customer service specialist.  Linda has a worked many years in the customer service arena and will be rapidly getting up to speed with the U.S. Wellness product line.  Remember, you are just one toll free call (877-383-0051) away from fast and friendly customer service. 

Megan Baugh has stepped up into Lynn Day's marketing director position.  We wish Lynn well in her new endeavor that requires a 5 minute commute compared to 40 minutes to Monticello!  Megan is most enthused to carry her bundle of energy into her new position.

Many of you have asked about fresh portion sales over the past 7 years.  That will become a reality later this year as we are working out the logistics at this time.  We will keep the menu to beef cuts only and most likely you will need to have orders in by Friday noon so the order can be fabbed on Monday and with luck shipped same day or Tuesday overnight to your door.  Final details to be determined.  Please fill free to make suggestions.

Catherine's Corner is a great read today, as an insidious disease affects one out of little more than 100. Most of the sufferers don't know they have it, and doctors don't diagnose it very often, due to the fact that this disease can be cured by dietary changes alone.

U.S. Wellness
Grass-fed beef and meats will help those who suffer from this serious malady to return to health and vitality.

Best Regards,

John, Lee Ann, Megan and Linda
On behalf of the farm families of U.S. Wellness Meats.

U.S. Wellness anticipates a free range chicken delivery on Monday, October 1.  Once confirmed, chicken breasts and single whole chickens will be back in stock.  We apologize for the delay.  Same is true for beef stew and flank steaks. 

Dollars Motivate Employees to Diet
Just $7 for dropping a few pounds is enough incentive

People will lose weight for money, even a little money, suggests a study that offers another option for employers looking for ways to cut health care costs.

The research published in the September issue of the Journal of Occupational and Environmental Medicine found that cash incentives can be a success even when the pay out is as little as $7 for dropping just a few pounds in three months.

Color Coded 20% Promo Code

The ensuing text will contain a 8 red letter sequence beginning in (P) that will plug into the promo code box at checkout.  This will create a 20% discount on orders under 40 pounds and exclude on sale items and Flavorwave oven.

Jon Andersen

John Wood shared a microphone on KRXA talk radio Saturday with host Glenn Brooks and  Jon Andersen in a spirited discussion on the health benefits of grass-fed meat.

Jon was asked what motivated him to commence his legendary work out schedule as a 15 year old.  Jon responded he was a slightly over weight young man attempting to play high school sports when Jon flipped on a 'stoic training' switch on that has never been turned off.  The key to Jon's success is he has never taken time off from training in 20 years.  You will never get ahead in an on again, off again training regime.

The first question Jon is asked is what do you eat. Jon was quick to point out that many folks consume food with little essential nutrition on board.  Jon's biggest gains came when grass-fed was introduced in March of 2004. The epiphany came after doing his own research based on the foundation poured by U.S. Wellness staff at the Fit Expo in Pasadena, CA. when the grass-fed beef journey began.

If all goes well in the next month, Jon should have a very interesting story to tell in a future newsletter.

Cahterine EbelingMysterious Disease is America's Epidemic

It can begin as severe intestinal distress, stomach pains, and diarrhea, malnutrition and extreme weight loss, or it can be as benign and subtle as anemia, osteoporosis,  thyroid disease,  or  acid reflux. Often sufferers may go from doctor to doctor, only to have each symptom treated separately, or even to be told, "its all in your head," and sent home. Frustrated victims may even suffer from migraines, depression or even schizophrenia, in addition to other physical symptoms.

For many, it may take more than ten years, and several doctors to finally come up with a correct diagnosis. The treatment is simple, and it does not usually require heavy medication, surgery or hospitalization.

What is this strange and mysterious malady?
Eric Seranno
Hi Dr. Serrano:

Because of a family history of arthritis and blood work that indicated a predisposition to rheumatoid arthritis, I was told to avoid foods high in arachidonic acid, i.e. red meat, egg yolks, etc. I am wondering if grass fed beef is lower in arachidonic acid than grain fed beef? Thanks for any information you can provide. I have eaten grass fed beef for a couple of years and hope I don't have to give it up!

Janet Mullinax

Dear Janet:
Arthritis has nothing to do with the fats, especially  rheumatoid arthritis, which has actually been associated with food allergies and viral infections. Recently some research has shown that the antibodies that attack and destroy your joints are identical to the gluten antibodies that your body produces. Almost every joint, pardon, every joint is made out of fat, and to make it worst they are made of saturated fats, so eating all those good things, will make your joints better. Now because you are talking about RA, we need to find out what you are allergic to, or what your body reacts with, usually a protein or a pieces of protein, or the body is intolerant to certain foods, and these foods are:
  • gluten
  • casein
  • corn
  • egg
  • lactose
No fat in this list, so go for it, and enjoy your organic meats with fats.


WHAT'S UP DOC: Dr. Al Sears, MD
Dr. Al Sears
By: Dr. Al Sears MD

You're about to bite into a nice, juicy steak at your favorite restaurant, when the waiter comes to your table and asks, "Do you all have enough antibiotics here? Are you enjoying your added lysine? How's the synthetic hormone?"

It's true. Unless you take steps to prevent it, the steak at your local restaurant or grocery store has artificial substances that, if given a choice, you wouldn't eat.

The cause is a simple one to understand: Produce the maximum amount of saleable meat per animal, as fast as possible, at the lowest possible cost. Commercial ranchers add growth hormones and feed low grade antibiotics to protect the liver from the acidic starch diet. This accelerates the animals' growth and yield, and protects them from the pathological bacteria they're exposed to.

Meanwhile, they're denied grasses and legumes, the only foods that their digestive systems have evolved to properly metabolize. Instead, they eat a high starch diet feed grains and a plant protein with unnatural additives. The result is a fat, inflamed and diseased animal. When you eat their meat, they have potential to pass these problems on to you.

High starch diet commercial cattle have significant less nutritional value than their pasture-fed relatives. A study in the Journal of Animal Science found that the more grass cattle ate, the more nutrient-rich their beef became. CLA and omega 3's rise while omega 6's decline.

These differences include your essential fatty acids, the omega-3 fat, CLA - so important for your brain and, the must-have energy nutrient for your heart, CoQ10.

For most of the 6,000 years since humans first domesticated cattle, they freely grazed hillsides, fields, and pastureland. If it's tasty, natural, and nutritious beef you're after, two words of advice: Go grass-fed.

Ground Beef
Dear Sir/Madam:

By the way, I cooked two of the
75% ground beef patties. They were fabulous -- the smell and flavor reminded me of the meat I used to eat as a child. Many years ago my father was a butcher and owned a small
shop. The beef we ate then had real flavor and the
melted fat was like "butter".  Over the years we
forgot just how good real meat tastes like. We will
definitely be reordering.

Do not forget to take advantage of the 40 pound $25 discount by ordering 40 pound combinations of beef, lamb, pork, butter, goat, shrimp and raw cheese.

This is our way of saying thank you for purchasing in volume. This can be any combination of products totaling 40 pounds and does not have to be specific to any category. Each 40 pound interval will yield the discount. For example, 80 pounds of product will yield a $50 discount and a 120 pound purchase will yield a $75 discount.


Our new format enacted in April 2005 requires a $75 minimum purchase and a 7 pound minimum combined purchase of beef, lamb, pork, nutraceuticals, gourmet rabbit, soap, organic shrimp, grass-fed goat, grass-fed bison, raw cheese, single piece poultry, and butter.

The issue is the bulk chicken and ten pound cheese bundles originate from separate cold storage centers where those products are produced. It is not efficient to ship one package of beef as a stand alone item when the balance of the order originates 400 miles away.

The shopping cart will keep track and remind you if you are under the 7 pound limit for a combination of beef, lamb, pork, raw cheese, butter, goat, shrimp, soap and single honey bottle purchases. Red font will appear under the shopping cart if you are under the minimum price or pound requirements.
