Create a Peaceful Home Life with Omega-3's

Dear John,
canton 081004 small 080906 storm shot
Ever wondered if there was something else you could do to calm down your wound-up kids or get them to stop fighting?  Would you like them to get along better with you and to cooperate? What can you do?

Studies have shown that reinforcing children's diets--and parents' too--with Omega 3 fatty acids can drastically calm them down, and improve behavior. Not only that, but when parents and children eat diets high in Omega 3's,  they actually bond better! While Omega 3 supplements may help, the best form of these precious oils is in whole foods. US Wellness Meats and US Wellness fish such as sardines, and halibutcontain high amounts of Omega 3 fatty acids, as well as high quality protein, iron and CLA in the beef, lamb and dairy.

It's easy to please all tastes too--with great choices such as: all beef franks, a variety of sausages, pre-cooked roasts and the always popular ground beef. Promote peace in the home, promote good health, and enjoy US Wellness Meats, Grass-fed Butter, Raw Cheeses, and Seafood.

Take time this Fall to appreciate the spectacular scenery that will be painted in many hues as America's trees put on one of the greatest shows on earth during the balance of October.  The copious rainfall during the 2008 growing season should make Fall 2008 especially brilliant for color enthusiasts.

Warmest regards,

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

Fish oil supplements may work slightly better than a popular cholesterol-reducing drug to help patients with chronic heart failure, according to new research released Sunday.Chronic heart failure is a condition that occurs when the heart becomes enlarged and cannot pump blood efficiently around the body.

With few effective options for heart failure patients, the findings could give patients a potential new treatment and could change the dietary recommendations for them, said Dr. Jose Gonzalez Juanatey, a spokesman for the European Society of Cardiology, who was not connected to the research.

Italian researchers gave nearly 3,500 patients a daily omega-3 pill, a prescription-formulation pill derived from fish oils, produced by Norway's Pronova BioPharma.
Same benefit from eating oily fish or high Omega 3 Grass-fed meats. Roughly the same number of patients were given placebo pills. Patients were followed for an average of four years.

In the group of patients taking the fish oil pills, 1,981 died of heart failure or were admitted to the hospital with the problem. In the patients on placebo pills, 2,053 died or were admitted to the hospital for heart failure.

In a parallel study, the same team of Italian doctors gave 2,285 patients the drug rosuvastatin, also known as Crestor, and gave placebo pills to 2,289 people. Patients were then tracked for about four years. The doctors found little difference in heart failure rates between the two groups.

Comparing the results from both studies, the researchers concluded that fish oil is slightly more effective than the drug because the oil performed better against a placebo than did Crestor.

"It's a small benefit, but we should always be emphasizing to patients what they can do in terms of diet that might help," said Dr. Richard Bonow, chief of cardiology at Northwestern University Hospital in Chicago and past president of the American Heart Association.

Both studies were paid for by an Italian group of pharmaceuticals including Pfizer Inc., Sigma
Tau SpA and AstraZeneca PLC.

World Record 1 Mile Truck Pull By Men Over 50!

     On Saturday November 1st in Fairmont, North Carolina at 2:00 in the afternoon John Brookfield and Jon Bruney will be pulling a semi-truck and trailer the distance of one mile plus for a World Record. They will be pulling the semi-truck using only their physical strength and mental fortitude. Both John Brookfield and Jon Bruney are multiple world record holders which specialize in gruelling strength and power endurance events.

     They have pulled trucks before several times for a mile, however, this time they will be increasing the pulling load and pushing themselves to complete the one mile course as quickly as possible. Many experts in the strength and conditioning field are saying that this test and record may be the greatest physical achievement ever accomplished. Come out and witness this World Record and walk along beside them as they strive to keep the semi-truck moving through the streets of Fairmont.

    Another fact that makes this world record a very interesting story is the fact that as they pull the truck for a mile the Kevin Baker band will be playing a concert on the back of the flatbed trailer they are pulling. Kevin Baker is a professional songwriter and music artist.

     A little bit of personal information on John Brookfield you may find interesting.  John has been seen on T.V. shows such as The Today Show, Good Morning America, Regis and Kathie Lee and the Statler Brothers. John has also been listed in Ripley's Believe it or not and the Guinness book of world Records. He has also authored four published books and is the creator of the Battling Ropes training system which is used by NFL teams, the Olympic wrestling team and many other athletes from different backgrounds.

     For more information about the location or specifics of this event, please contact John Brookfield by email:

     In my many years of training for record events and pushing myself to achieve the best possible performance I have tried and examined many different avenues. However, the US wellness products have given me sustaining energy and supplied me with the best natural protein source to enable me to be successful in these groundbreaking records. I highly recommend US Wellness meats not only to the athlete but to everyone.

Crabbiness, temper tantrums, talking back, hitting, fighting, impulsive behavior. Sound like the daily routine around your house with the kids? Did you know feeding your children the right kinds of oils could alleviate some of this behavior? How would you like to improve not only your children's behavior, but increase the bonding behavior of both parent and child and create an environment of peace and tranquility in your home?

Omega 3 oil, such as that found in grass-fed meats and fatty fishes such as salmon and sardines, has been found to improve behavior of children, improve concentration and parent bonding, so says a study out of the UK.

The dramatic results showed that while 47% of the children in the study started with what was rated as poor behavior, by the end of the study, only 4% had behavior rated as poor.

Those results are absolutely amazing! What pharmaceutical drug could do that? And furthermore, why would anyone want to turn to a drug with harmful side effects, when a good, healthy diet alone will work wonders?

One of the most significant advantages of this study shows that not only did the Omega 3's improve behavior and concentration in the children, but helped to facilitate a much stronger parent and child bond!

This is very good news if you're a parent trying to improve your relationship with your child. Quite often it is the bonding--or lack thereof, that causes the initial friction to develop, and the more the child pulls away from the parent, the less the child cares to cooperate. This creates a vicious cycle that can worsen with time. A good parent/child bond helps both to maintain a better relationship on both sides.

Previous studies involving children have shown that omega-3 fatty acids can have a beneficial effect on conditions such as ADD, ADHD, depression, impulsive behavior, and dyslexia. We now know that these conditions can run in families so it's likely that many parents are suffering alongside their children.

Children may soon benefit from less moody parents if a newly launched trial with omega-3 fatty acids is successful, adding to the list of studies linking Omega 3's to behavior and cognitive function. This is the first study of its kind to look at the effects of omega 3 on parents.

Depletion of essential fatty acids can take place during pregnancy, and each subsequent birth. To counteract this reduction, a very good diet is important. This is not an easy option for busy parents but without it, parents may experience mood swings and/or depression, which can have an adverse effect on family life.

If Omega 3's can even have a positive effect on aggressive prisoners, then surely there is hope for children.  

 A UK trial at a prison showed that when the inmates were fed multivitamins, minerals and essential fatty acids, the number of violent offenses committed in prison fell by 37%. There is a direct link between diet and antisocial behavior...

You need to eat good quality protein. But this seemingly simple task keeps getting trickier. More meats are now "packaged" and you may be eating more of them than you think. For example: do you eat breakfast sausage or bacon with your eggs; luncheon meat in a sandwich or a frozen "dinner entree?" Even scarier--most parents I know are now giving their kids prepackaged meals on a regular basis.

Here's the origin of our modern problem: meat has a very short shelf life. To keep selling meat for longer, food manufacturers add nitrates and nitrites. They prevent spoilage, growth of bacteria, and make meat appear red, fresh and vibrant. Then they add artificial flavors so you can't tell that you are eating old, stale meat.

We've known about the dangers of nitrites and nitrates for decades. In fact, the USDA attempted banning their use back in the 1970's. The meat packing industry lobbied hard and won. Research has shown and reconfirmed that nitrites and nitrates promote life-threatening cancers including: breast cancer, prostate cancer, pancreatic cancer, colorectal cancer, and leukemia.

One study conducted at the University of Hawaii found people who ate even moderate amounts of processed meat on a regular basis increased their risk of pancreatic cancer by a whopping 67%!

The World Cancer Research Fund issued a report stating that, "It's best that any processed meats be avoided," and that "they were not able to find a level at which processed meat could be reliably considered completely safe."

Check the label of the meat you're about to buy. Unless the label says "nitrate/nitrite free" it's a good bet it contains nitrates/nitrites.

Your best meat is also hormone-free and antibiotic-free. Even better, you can do as I do and only eat grass-fed meat. I get mine from U.S. Wellness Meats.  It is grass-fed for a healthy ratio of omega 3 to omega 6 fats, hormone-fee antibiotic-free, and has no preservatives. It is shipped to your door packed in gel ice.

Save $64,000 With 3 Cardiovascular Cures That Cost Next to Nothing
By Shane "The People's Chemist" Ellison © 2008

I love to spend money. Whether it's buying books for my child, a lift ticket for a day of snowboarding, or date night with my wife, I get great satisfaction out of spending money on products, services, and activities that I perceive as having value.

But more than spending, I enjoy investing. Wise investing allowed me to escape an arduous nine-to-five career with one of the world's largest drug providers. And making wise investments in my health - in the foods I eat and the activities I engage in - has been one of the most important things I've ever done.

The fact is, your health is an investment. Possibly the best investment you will ever make. If you invest in it now, you will see big returns in the future. If you don't, it could cost you big time down the line.

According to a recent report by CNN Money, "The retirement health tab can run between $64,000 and $122,000 for a 65-year-old man whose former employer pays his insurance premiums, and between $86,000 and $140,000 for a woman of the same age. For retirees who don't have access to an employer-offered plan, the costs - mostly for prescription drugs - run even higher."

In addition to exorbitant drug expenses, most adult Americans have one foot in the grave. Obesity, heart disease, diabetes, and cancer are at an all-time high. And it's expected to get worse. The Journal of the American Medical Association predicted that one in three born in the year 2000 will succumb to Type II diabetes, which is simply a "gateway" disease to all the pandemic killers. This rampant sickness is being met with an arsenal of cholesterol-lowering drugs, blood pressure meds, anti-depressants, and hypoglycemics. None have been proven to increase lifespan. They are toxic and ineffective, yet, they are continually pushed upon us... for one reason: financial gain.

Health doesn't have to be so damn expensive or risky. Science proves it. Mother Nature provides three cardiovascular cures that cost next to nothing. Combined, they can help you overcome a weakening heart and even Type II diabetes.

Low-Cost Cardiovascular Cure #1: Psyllium Husk

Psyllium husk is a soluble fiber, meaning it is an indigestible, complex carbohydrate. Once consumed, it undergoes fermentation in the large intestine, yielding a broad range of heart-healthy benefits, most notably the control of appetite, blood sugar, and insulin.

A pooled analysis of 10 studies of dietary fiber intake in the U.S. and Europe found that each 10 grams/day increase in total dietary fiber was associated with a 14 percent decrease in the risk of coronary events, and a 24 percent decrease in deaths from coronary heart disease.

Psyllium husk is one of my favorite supplements because of its ability to help control blood glucose. Excess glucose in the bloodstream can become "oxidized." This oxidation leads to a change in the molecular structure of the glucose - causing what is known as advanced glycation end products (AGE products). Like a knife carving clay, AGE products scar arterial walls. The scarring results in plaque buildup and excess blood clotting. This mechanism is why diabetics have a 4.5 times increase of suffering from heart attack and stroke relative to non-diabetics.

Go to your local health food store and purchase psyllium husk. In the bulk isle, psyllium can be purchased for about $3 per month.

Low-Cost Cardiovascular Cure #2: B Vitamins

B vitamins are required for proper functioning of the brain, nervous system, and the formation of blood. They are also involved in the metabolism of every cell of the human body, especially for proper DNA synthesis and regulation, but also for fatty acid synthesis and energy production. Harvard researchers writing in the Journal of the American Medical Association stated that women could cut their risk of heart disease by half with daily consumption of B vitamins.

B vitamins are responsible for igniting a chemical cascade within the body known as methylation. This process rids the arteries of the damaging molecule known as homocysteine. The lower your levels of homocysteine, the less risk you have of suffering from cardiovascular disease. 

Start supplementing with B vitamins today. A daily B vitamin supplement should cost no more than $10 per month.

Low-Cost Cardiovascular Cure #3: Flavonoids

Flavonoids are plant-derived pigments. More than 4,000 have been studied for their cardiovascular and anti-cancer benefits. The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition reported a 20 percent decrease in heart disease mortality risk among those who consumed at least 7.5 mg daily.

Flavonoids preserve the cardiovascular system and heart through three major actions: improving blood flow in order to enhance oxygen and nutrient delivery throughout the 100,000 miles of adult veins, arteries and capillaries... preventing the formation of artery-scarring, oxidized LDL... and relaxing the coronary arteries to prevent high blood pressure.

Make sure your shopping cart is loaded with foods that are packed with flavonoids. The best sources of flavonoids are broccoli, hawthorn, grapeseed extract, black tea, citrus fruits, and organic dark chocolate.

Using these three cardiovascular cures rather than drugs to preserve health is a wise investment. It could potentially save you $64,000 in drug costs. What could you do with an extra $64,000 and good health? For me, it means more education for my kids, snowboarding, and date nights in exotic places around the world.

Dr. Serrano,

In your article on August 24, you stated that "A person with diabetes has a pancreas that actually doesn't work right, and if the pancreas output of insulin is low, meat can also have a secondary effect through the fat" and you went on to explain how if someone has a working pancreas and eats fermented foods that contain enzymes, they should be all right. I have had diabetes for 31 years without any known complications, but I often feel tired after eating meat, grass-fed and regular. Actually, many foods trigger a tired response.
 Can you elaborate on how to get my pancreas checked, the foods I should be eating that contain enzymes, what to avoid, and other steps that I should consider?


Dear Deena,

Congratulations on your excellent job in controlling diabetes which is a very hard to do without the right diet.

Your question is an excellent question because a lot of diabetic patients in my office ask me the same. The first thing is to check for food allergies, and the second step is to check your enzymes by doing a stool analysis by doctors data or any other reputable lab which analyzes enzymatic stools, and compare them with blood levels. Any Doctor can order those tests.

Also start your own enzymatic supplementation  by taking enzymes daily and also taking vinegar with your meals.

Avoid hydrogenated fats or fats from cheese that are not organic and avoid canola or corn oil.

I would suggest you start making your own kefir, which is very easy by buying your own bacteria and adding raw milk.

Again congratulations and I hope these suggestions and answers make a difference in your life.

Ground Beef

Just received the order of 75/25 ground beef and need to tell you it's the tastiest I've ever eaten.

I've had grass fed beef from several different companies and will be your customer from now on.

I also appreciated the overnight shipping.  The beef was still well frozen and
the gel coolant still rock hard. Prompt shipping was a problem with almost
every other company.

I'll be placing an order for many of your other products ( butter, sausages
etc.) next week.

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.
