Relief from Seasonal Allergies

April 6, 2008
Monticello, Missouri
Dear John,

Ahh...long awaited spring, ahh...sunshine, blooming, ahh...warm weather, ahh..ahhh...AHCHOO!!! Oh yes, and spring allergies are back in full force! As those trees start to bud and blossom, as the grass starts to grow, as pollen starts to fly, we start the sneezing, sniffling, coughing, itching, allergy season. You can turn to pharmaceuticals for help, but they often have unwanted side effects and may not bring you the relief you need. There are alternatives: a better diet to decrease inflammation and allergic reactions, nutraceuticals to bolster the immune system, anti-inflammatory Omega 3 oils and CLA, and herbal supplements--all can bring back that clear head and clear sinuses and the sparkle in your eyes.

U.S. Wellness Meats offers the cleanest, purest,  grass-fed meats, high in healthy Omega 3 fatty acids and Conjugated Linoleic Acids,
high enzyme raw dairy products like grass-fed raw cheeses and high CLA butter, and the highest quality nutraceuticals.

Thank you for your continued interest in your good health and for our fledging business.

Here's to your Good Health!

Warmest regards,

John, Lee Ann, Megan, Lacey, and McKenzie,
on behalf of the farm families of U.S. Wellness Meats.

Trans fats are a cholesterol double whammy. Also known as trans fatty acids, trans fats raise low-density lipoprotein (LDL or "bad") cholesterol and lower high-density lipoprotein (HDL or "good") cholesterol.

Experts consider trans fat the worst type of dietary fat. Trans fat contributes to heart disease by promoting low-grade inflammation in the blood vessels. And, trans fats are associated with a higher risk of developing type 2 diabetes.

The April issue of Mayo Clinic Women's Health Source provides information to better understand the health risks posed by trans fats as well as tips to avoid consuming them.

Trans fats are formed when liquid oils are made into solid fats such as shortening and hard margarine. Because of their long shelf life and appealing texture, synthetic trans fats have been favored ingredients in commercially baked goods such as cakes, cookies, crackers and crusts. Commercially fried foods, such as doughnuts and french fries, also often contain trans fats.

The use of trans fats is starting to change. New York City made headlines when it banned trans fats in restaurants. Other cities are considering going trans-fat free. Some food manufacturers are reducing or eliminating trans fats in their products.

But avoiding trans fats still takes diligence. The American Heart Association recommends limiting trans fats to less than 1 percent of daily calories. That's just 20 calories (2 grams) in a 2,000-calorie per day diet. That amount can easily come from naturally occurring trans-fatty acids in dairy products and meat from cows, goats and sheep.

At the grocery store, product nutrition labels contain trans fat information. However, a product that has less than half a gram of trans fat can be labeled as zero. Eating modest amounts of these products easily can add up to more than 2 grams of trans fats. Keys words such as "shortening," "partially hydrogenated" or "hydrogenated" indicate the food contains trans fats even when the chart on the label indicates none. Many restaurants continue to use trans fats for deep-fried foods. Grilled or baked foods are more likely to be trans-fat free.

Steve Maxwell - fitness trainer
Having attended numerous trade shows over the past 7 years, it never ceases to amaze me the fascinating people we bump into that turn into long term partnerships with our healthy proteins.

In November 2006 we bumped into great lady who was dating the legendary fitness trainer and U.S. champion martial arts expert Mr. Steve Maxwell.

Steve was immediately interested in our pemmican bars and beef jerky.  After several months of hearty pemmican consumption, Steve reported no soreness in previously very painful joint pain in his hands.  The pain was to the point of altering his career as his hands were an integral part of his training and competing livelihood.

Recently Steve has initiated a very informative blog spot that I think many will find interesting.  The current issue will make many of you re-think treadmills and jogging as your primary exercise methods.  The blog lists ten concerns connected to repetitive exercise and several alternative workout methods that will create short duration whole body intense exercise.

We wish Steve Maxwell best of success in his enthusiasm for teaching high intensity fitness programs.

Steve's motto is as follows:

It's How You Put It Together!

Help your Seasonal Allergies by Eating Right

Springtime brings beautiful, warmer weather and the chance to get outside more, but it can also bring with it a host of allergy symptoms.
Whether it's the long-awaited change of winter into spring, or the quiet fading of summer into fall, for many folks the changing of the seasons means more than just a change in the weather -- it signals the start of seasonal allergies.
Sneezing, wheezing, runny nose, and itchy, watery, red eyes -- these are just some of the symptoms that more than 35 million Americans face each year as the pollen from trees, grass, flowers, and plants makes it way into the air.

While many run to the nearest drugstore counter or the allergy doctor, and load up with medicine to help out, there are other methods that will help allergies as much or better than the latest antihistamine-without the side effects.
The line of defense is to take action. There are some quick fixes that can be implemented right away to bring about some immediate relief. First and most obvious is to close the windows in your home and as wonderful as that fresh spring breeze is coming through the windows, it is bringing in loads of pollen from outside that end up in the carpeting, pillows and upholstered furniture. So while air conditioning is not the most energy efficient, you will benefit greatly in the long run.
Also avoid if at all possible-at least in the bedroom-pets. Pets bring in dander and shedding fur and if they go outside, they are also bringing in more pollen. Give yourself a 'safe' zone in the house and keep it free of pets.

Dr. Al Sears

By Al Sears, MD
Author of The Doctor's Heart Cure

Did you know that health problems like heart disease, obesity, and diabetes were rare among hunter-gatherers?

It's a little-known fact. But the archaeological record shows that the modern epidemic of chronic diseases appeared at the same time we switched to a diet based on agriculture. The evidence for this cropped up in ancient burial mounds in the Illinois and Ohio River valleys - right in the middle of modern farm country.

Dr. Loren Cordain, an expert on primitive dietary habits and a professor of exercise physiology at Colorado State University, led the study. They looked at 800 skeletons of these native people and found that when corn became the staple of their diet, they also experienced a 50 percent increase in malnutrition, a four-fold increase in iron-deficiency, and a three-fold increase in infectious disease compared to their hunter-gatherer ancestors.

He also looked at the diets of 229 of the world's remaining native societies.

Here's what he found:

    There were no vegetarian cultures
    Game was their principle source of protein and fat
    Hunted game or fish was highly valued
    Organ meat was the most prized, often reserved for the elites.

Dr. Cordain also found that animal foods make up fifty to sixty-five percent of the diets of hunter-gatherer societies.

For millions of years, human beings survived on natural meat and fat, berries, seeds, aboveground vegetables, and seasonal fresh fruits - not grains. Our physiology evolved around this basic diet. And in evolutionary terms, the amount of time since we started eating grains is a blink of the eye.

This is why I tell my patients to ignore the USDA's "Food Pyramid" with its 6-11 servings of bread, pasta, cereals per day. Meat from natural, healthy animals, raised as Nature intended, is one of the healthiest foods you'll find.

Eric SerannoDear Dr. Serrano,

I've been hearing about all of the wonderful health benefits of CLA from eating grass-fed beef, especially the organ meats like liver.  I'm a blood-type A which says to stay away from red meat, would grass-fed beef liver be okay lightly cooked or should I stick with chicken liver?  Is chicken liver as beneficial since it doesn't have the CLA that grass-fed beef does?
Thank you for your time,

Robyn Z.

Dear Robyn:

I used the blood type diet, but it only works about 33% of the time. The diet doesn't take into consideration many things like sex, height, activity levels and etc.

The body requires red meat for two reasons,  iron and vitamin B12. The best source is red meat period. When humans used to live in the non supermarket time they were forced to hunt, because agriculture was not available either, and some days the humans eat a lot, and other days none, because they have to hunt it, and they will pick fruits, nuts etc from the floor, as they hunt, that is why I believe every body should eat meat, and I don't like vegetarians either, they are scarier than any thing else.

Seriously, liver has RNA, DNA, proteins and a lot of good stuff that is why the male king lion eats the liver first then the rest of the group can eat the rest of the carcass, liver is a super high concentrate of vitamins, minerals, and proteins that everybody should eat, but from organic sources, because it is the filter of the toxins in the body.

Mother Nature's Total Immune Boosting Breakthroughs

Stop Fearing Super Bugs

By Shane "The People's Chemist" Ellison (C) 2007

As a drug chemist, I used to fear going to work. I risked numerous health hazards - like being exposed to a cancer causing reagent and even losing my wedding ring to a chemical drain.  Cancer is bad, but having your wife feel like you are being careless about your marriage is worse. Unknown to her, I was washing off DNA twisting molecules that burned my skin and eyes while they vacuumed the air from my lungs.  My ring fell off somewhere between stripping off my clothes, pulling the lab's evacuation button, and yanking the emergency shower cord. I naively assumed that these were necessary risks for making so-called life saving drugs. I was wrong.
Outside of emergency medicine, prescription drugs are just as deadly as the reagents used to make them. Antibiotics, antivirals and vaccines are a perfect example. Some would argue that this arsenal of anti-infectious agents is a cure. This is almost true. They make us feel better and can even save us from the perils of death in an emergency. But using them outside of an emergency can cause them to become a growth medium for producing stronger and deadlier infectious agents - think drug resistant Super Bugs like the flesh eating Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA). Additionally, they can give rise to some nasty side effects - think depression, cancer, liver and kidney failure.  Five year old Jennifer learned this the hard way.

Dear U.S. Wellness:

I just got my order today.  I decided to stop eating beef a few years ago after learning how the lipid profile of grain-fed animals are changed due to grain diet. 

Consequently, I haven't had any beef for years,  I just had a fabulous steak and I feel like a queen, no make that a king.  Although I don't eat much meat, I was tired of eating organic, free-range chicken and nitrate-free turkey bacon.  I was very happy with the taste of my beef and can't wait to try the cheese.

Do not forget to take advantage of the 40 pound $25 discount by ordering 40 pound combinations of beef, lamb, pork, butter, goat, shrimp, bison, condiments, honey, rabbit, single item chicken selections, snack foods, pet food, 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.
