Read the recent breakthrough studies on Autism and diet. If you or anyone you know has a child with autism, this diet can help by reducing some of the negative behaviors associated with autism. While healthy diets and healthy fats help everyone, a healthy diet high in omega 3's can make a drastic difference in children with autism. See Catherine's Comment.

If this doesn't bring Patriotic tears...Chief Warrant Officer Matthew Gene Kelley was killed in action when his helicopter collided with another helicopter in Iraq.   Four soldiers died in the accident, yet it did not even make TV news!  The clip below from Cameron, Missouri on February 2, 2009 shows the true sense of pride Americans have for their fallen heroes.  On this 4th of July we especially remember those who paid the ultimate price protecting our freedom.  We are proud to call Cameron a sister Missouri city.  View clip HERE

EATING nuts can help cut the risk of heart disease among women with Type 2 diabetes, new research suggests.

A study of more than 6,000 women from 1980 to 2002 found those who ate lots of nuts or peanut butter slashed their risk of heart disease almost in half. The research was published in the Journal of Nutrition.

Overall, there were 452 coronary "events" such as heart attack or revascularisation, and 182 cases of stroke.

Women at the start of the study who consumed more nuts and peanut butter were leaner, more physically active, and tended to smoke less, the authors said.

After adjusting for those factors that could influence the results, the experts found that women who ate at least five servings per week of nuts or peanut butter had a 44 per cent lower risk of heart disease and events such as heart attack or stroke.

A serving was defined as 28g of nuts or 16g (one tablespoon) of peanut butter.

The authors, from the Harvard Medical School and Harvard School of Public Health in Boston, said: "These data suggest that frequent nut and peanut butter consumption is associated with a significantly lower CVD risk in women with Type 2 diabetes."

Ellen Mason, cardiac nurse for the British Heart Foundation, said: "It is beneficial to include nuts in our diets, as they are low in the saturated fats that raise our cholesterol. However, peanut products can be full of added sugar or salt."

Catherine's Comment
by Catherine Ebeling, RN BSN

Cahterine Ebeling

Autism rates in industrialized countries have risen dramatically in the last decade, and more research is being conducted looking more at the effects of diet and nutrition (both prenatal and post natal) on behavior.

Much has been written about the gluten-free/casein-free diet for autism, and this diet has a lot of merit and many have seen noticeable improvement using it. New studies are now looking more at the positive effects of fatty acids-primarily omega 3 fatty acids--on the brain and behavior, and specifically, autism. As previous studies have shown, the effects of omega 3 fatty acids on dementia, aggressive behavior, and ADHD have been very beneficial and have brought about marked improvements in these conditions. Now new research shows there is increasing evidence that fatty acid deficiencies or imbalances may contribute to autism behaviors.

In Scotland, where autism rates have risen at the same steep incline as in the U.S., researchers conducted studies with omega 3 fatty acids. They made an exciting breakthrough: Childhood autism may be associated with a deficiency of fatty acids, primarily omega 3 fats.

According to a study of autistic children, cell membranes in the blood of autistic children processed fatty acids at a much faster rate than other children. Brain cell membranes are largely made up of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. Based on their discovery, researchers speculate fatty acid deficiency may be a partial trigger for autism. Omega-3 fatty acids appear to be very important in normal brain development and capability. These particular fatty acids are recognized as essential fatty acids that are vital to our health, but cannot be produced by the body.

These essential fatty acids appear to be particularly important for cognitive and behavioral function. In fact, infants who do not get enough omega-3 fatty acids from their mothers during pregnancy are at risk for developing...

When I was growing up in Kentucky, my grandparents had a grove of walnut trees. So... I ate a lot of walnuts. My grandmother cooked with them, baked with them, and we ate them by the handful for snacks. She always said they were good for you. How right she was.
A new study shows that eating walnuts could reduce your risk of breast cancer. With just a handful of nuts (2 ounces) a day, mice delayed the onset of cancerous tumors. You see, walnuts contain a trio of cancer fighters - phytosterols, omega-3s, and flavonoids.
Phytosterols. Studies show that these nutrient compounds can inhibit tumors from forming in the breast and shrink them if they are already there.  
In addition to walnuts, you can find phytosterols in:

·    Legumes
·    Flax seed oil
·    Peanut butter
·    Pistachios
·    Sunflower seeds
·    Almonds
·    Brussels sprouts

Omega-3s. Omega-3s have a unique ability. They are able to get absorbed into cell membranes where they help cancer cells self-destruct. They reduce a inflammatory enzyme called COX 2, which promotes breast cancer.
Plus, they keep your body's breast cancer genes healthy. When these genes function normally, they help repair DNA and prevent cancer from developing.
You can get omega-3s in these foods:

·    Wild-caught salmon, anchovies, sardines
·    Flax seeds
·    Grass-fed beef
.    Almonds and Pecans

·    Avocado
·    Sacha inchi oil
·    Olives/olive oil

Flavonoids. Walnuts also contain a flavonoid called ellagic acid. This powerful flavonoid inhibits the growth of cancer cells.  
Ellagic acid not only protects your healthy cells from free radical damage, but it also helps to detox would-be cancer-causing cells and helps prevent cancer cells from reproducing.

Other ellagic acid-rich foods are:
.    Berries (blueberries, cranberries, raspberries, strawberries
·    Pecans
·    Pomegranates
Working all of these foods into your diet will help you protect your body from the dreaded "C" word. Still walnuts are the only super food that offers all these cancer-fighting compounds in one.
To get the freshest, most nutritious walnuts, follow these tips:
·    If you're buying walnuts in the shell, make sure the shells don't have any defects - look for little wormholes. Give the shells a little shake. If they rattle when you shake them, they are probably old and over dried.
·    Store shelled walnuts in an airtight package. You can store them up to about 6 months if you keep them in the refrigerator. Up to a year in the freezer.
·    If you prefer unshelled walnuts, look for a freshness date on the package. The high oil content makes them highly perishable. Heat and humidity will speed up the process. As with the shelled walnuts, keep them in an airtight container in the refrigerator and they will last for several months too. Longer in the freezer.

Aside from popping a handful of walnuts in your mouth, there are many ways to enjoy them. Sprinkle a handful on your salad or yogurt, or experiment with your favorite recipes. I like to add them to chicken salad or sautéed vegetables.

To Your Good Health,

Al Sears, MD

By Shane "The People's Chemist Ellison
Coca-cola is over 120 years old.  Only seven people in the history of the world have known the Coke formula.  No matter how large, corporations are great at keeping secrets.  Drug giant Eli Lilly is no exception.  While working as an organic chemist, I was appalled to learn how they methodically kept natural remedies from the watchful eye of the media, especially when it involved effective cancer fighters like Madagascar periwinkle.

According to folklore, periwinkle is an effective anti-diabetic shrub.  Looking closely into the unique medicinal properties, Eli Lilly used state of the art characterization techniques to identify about 70 different active ingredients known as alkaloids.  Their studies unfolded an unexpected, yet shocking finding:  It was also effective in treating leukemia and a wide variety of other cancers.  Remission rates were found to be as high as 50% in short term studies.  But long term studies ceased and were replaced with attempts at making more profitable, synthetic copy cats.

To date, only two of the 70 identified, anti-cancer compounds found in Periwinkle have been replicated.  Unfortunately, they don't carry the highly sought after remission rates as their inexpensive, nutritive parents do.   

The final story on Madagascar periwinkle according to Big Pharma is that it's poisonous.  But In Madagascar, its extracts have been used for hundreds of years as medicine.  If Eli Lilly is half as good as Coke at keeping secrets, this potential, natural cancer cure will probably forever remain under the pharmaceutical drug rug, along with all the other less profitable, natural cures.

Dr. Eric Serrano M.D., M.S., B.C.

Dear Dr. Serrano-
You gave me Mark Harmon's name and number regarding the aminos you developed and you have mentioned them several times in various newsletters.

As mentioned before I have competitively power lifted in the past, but now I just lift weights seriously for personal gain and health.

The questions I have are as follows:

I have used a product with 23 Freeform Crystalline Amino Acids as primarily pre- and post-workout and on  non-workout days twice a day (as a meal replacement) in between my three meals. I just don't feel like eating an additional 2 plus meals with my  schedule. I am simply trying to be lean and gain muscle.
I am interested in your Muscle Synthesis but notice it does not contain as many amino acids. Is there a benefit to taking what I do now over yours, and if not, could you explain why ?  At face value it would seem that a full spectrum would be better, but I have not done any research and always have an open mind and ask questions rather than assume an  incorrect conclusion.

Question Two: You also have mentioned Beverly International's Density as a good second choice. Could you explain why yours are a better product?

My intent and goal is to understand why I put something in my body and which is the best and most efficacious..

Thank you in advance for your time.

Dear M.:

I love questions.

M.,  when I was working on my formula, I looked at muscle biopsies, amino acid concentrations of different sources of proteins including liver, beef, milk, whey, casein etc.. If you compare the proteins, they have certain ratios which are different, and which actually do different things in the body. After two years, and spending a lot of money, I came up with the formula after trial and error with athletes and found the ones that gave them the best results. You cannot assume that just because it has all the aminos, it is  better.  Casein and whey will be the same, it is not only the amount, but the ratios and structure of the proteins.

The reason mine is better than the other is simple--results. Try this: take a week off your aminos, and then try mine for a month, but do not change your workouts, eating habits, sleeping or anything, and let me know what happens. Then do the same again and take a week off and go back to your brand and let me know what you think. Amino acids, free-form are very expensive, so it they are very cheap, beware.

Need A Training Lift?
By: Scott Mendelson


I struggle to find time for exercise and am looking for ways to get the best return on my time.  I tried a couple home video routines, but ultimately they were not productive.  What do you suggest and the goal is to maximize my health and LOSE FAT!

Tim  Des Moines


you are in luck as I have many clients approach me with the same exact question.  Time is at a premium and I have solutions.  I have been fortunate to work with many executive, surgeons, and etc. who have extremely demanding schedules combined with a committed desire to improve their level of fitness. When it comes to training - more is not necessarily better.  I have come to find over the last 10 years that a majority of the people with very high training volumes never reach their full potential due to over training.  The Short Burst training solutions take 10-15 minutes and can be done at home with no equipment. There are no more excuses as if you cannot make time for this a few times per week, then you better make time to be sluggish and ultimately ill.  

The Customized Solution

You can get 90% of the nutrition and training equation correct and still not earn great results at times.  I think Short Burst routines will get you on the right path, but a customized approach is always the most productive solution for my clients.  Complete the entire picture by using the right plan for your needs and you can see your rate of progress double.

Accomplish more results in LESS Time

Resistance training is an essential part of any body composition improvement routine.  You can use a circuit of several exercises with minimal rest periods to achieve your goals.  Those with more experience, must gradually increase the weight loads and other parameters of progression.  Tim, you can start with body weight movements achieved with no equipment so that you can complete the routine at home and save on commute time.  More advanced trainees can add weight loads to the movements by holding weights or a medicine ball.

Short Burst Training

Short Burst training was born a couple years ago to fulfill the needs of my clients who are crunched for time and for those who wanted a quick way to get in some extra work in addition to their traditional workouts making Short Burst tactics great for trainees of all levels.  Despite the reduced length of these routines they can create great results.  Focus on proper execution and challenge yourself each week to improve on the prior weeks efforts.  

You can view the Short Burst concept video here

I have also posted a couple sample mid section training videos for your viewing pleasure.

What Our Customers Are Saying

Hi John,

You know, I've been thinking recently about our eating habits as a nation, including Canada in this...  your email on the red meat media attack makes me want to share my thoughts...

We want the cheapest price for the most food, and we don't care how we get it.  We don't care what kind of terrible conditions the animals live in, what drugs they're given to keep them alive and grow as big as possible, to make the most money for the corporation that grows them.  They have no business being called a farm, farmers care about their animals, these corporations only care about money, at any cost, to animal or the human who consumes the contaminated product they manufacture.  

It is no wonder if people are getting sick from red meat, because it is primarily this red meat-like product that most Canadians and Americans consume.  We don't want to pay too much for it, so we can afford that designer handbag or whatever it is we think we need.  We want as much food for as little as we can spend, we don't want to give up any more of our budget for food than is absolutely necessary.

If we'd all think twice about what is really important, we'd all realize that it is our responsibility as consumers to make sure that the animals we consume are treated humanely and with respect, they give us life.  Sometimes you get what you pay for, and we are paying a bigger price with our health, much of that I'd bet to the big drug companies who benefit from all of our maladies.

We shouldn't be supporting the corporations that keep animals in un-natural conditions, so that we can benefit from the lower cost.  It doesn't cost that much to eat well and support respectful farming of the animals that nourish our bodies.  We all need to eat a little less perhaps anyway, if we spend more, and get more out of that money spent, we need to eat less. 

It costs very little to soak a cup of brown rice over night in 3 ½ cups of water, cook that in the morning for twenty minutes, and add chopped dried fruit, yogurt, bananas, and you get a LOT more out of it than from that cardboard boxed cereal.  I like the savvy customer you mentioned in your email, though I can't purport to being to the level yet of never buying anything in a cardboard box.  It does take time to come around from what we've all become so accustomed to, opening a bag of something you buy in the grocery store so that you can eat in ten minutes...

Perhaps we all need to take a step back from the more for less thinking that we've all fallen into, and think about what that cheap factory meat, and everything else we buy in bags and boxes, ready to eat in ten minutes, and what it actually does to our health.  If we are suffering maladies from red meat consumption, then perhaps it is time to think about how that meat is being manufactured, and remember that if we fill those animals with drugs and garbage food, that is the quality of meat that we're going to get on our tables.

If we eat meat from animals who have been treated with respect and fed properly, we benefit in so many ways, healthfully, and morally.  We have a responsibility to these animals who are entirely at our mercy, who are bred by, cared for by us, cannot survive without us.  Their entire lives are in our hands.  We owe it to them to stop buying garbage that is produced by factories.  If we did this, perhaps we'd even see the return of more small family farms, more care for our environment, and better health for us in both regards.

Have you ever wondered what happened to the 56 men who signed the Declaration of Independence ?

Five signers were captured by the British as traitors, and tortured before they died.

Twelve had their homes ransacked and burned. Two lost their sons serving in the Revolutionary Army; another had two sons captured.

Nine of the 56 fought and died from wounds or hardships of the Revolutionary War.

They signed and they pledged their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor.

What kind of men were they?

Twenty-four were lawyers and jurists. Eleven were merchants, nine were farmers and large plantation owners; men of means, well educated, but they signed the Declaration of Independence knowing full well that the penalty would be death if they were captured.

Carter Braxton of Virginia, a wealthy planter and trader, saw his Ships swept from the seas by the British Navy. He sold his home and properties to pay his debts, and died in rags.

Thomas McKeam was so hounded by the British that he was forced to move his family almost constantly. He served in the Congress without pay, and his family was kept in hiding. His possessions were taken from him, and poverty was his reward.

Vandals or soldiers looted the properties of Dillery, Hall, Clymer, Walton, Gwinnett, Heyward, Ruttledge, and Middleton.

At the battle of Yorktown , Thomas Nelson, Jr., noted that the British General Cornwallis had taken over the Nelson home for his headquarters.

He quietly urged General George Washington to open fire. The home was destroyed, and Nelson died bankrupt.

Francis Lewis had his home and properties destroyed.
The enemy jailed his wife, and she died within a few months.

John Hart was driven from his wife's bedside as she was dying. Their 13 children fled for their lives.  His fields and his gristmill were laid to waste.  For more than a year he lived in forests and caves, returning home to find his wife dead and his children vanished.

Some of us take these liberties so much for granted, but we shouldn't.  So, take a few minutes while enjoying your 4th of July holiday and  silently thank these patriots.

It's not much to ask for the price they paid.

Remember: freedom is never free!

If the spirit move you: Copy and send to your elected officials in hopes it impacts their decision making and removes any thoughts of greed and power mongering.

$25 Discount for 40lb. Increments

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.

Minimum Purchase Rules

U.S. Wellness requires a $75 minimum purchase and a 7 pound minimum combined purchase of beef, lamb, pork, nutraceuticals, gourmet rabbit, grass-fed goat, grass-fed bison, raw cheese, single piece poultry, and butter.

The minimum is required since we have built the cost of shipping into the price of the product.  You will only see a nominal handling at checkout.

The issue is the 20 pound bulk chicken and turkeys  originate from separate cold storage center 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. A Red font will appear under the shopping cart if you are under the minimum price or pound requirements.
