$150 Recipe Contest, Avoid H1N1 Panic, T-Bone Sale, Thanksgiving Turkeys, Natural Cures


November 1, 2009

Monticello, Missouri
Dear John,

We are busy getting ready for the upcoming Weston A. Price Wise Traditions Conference, being held this year in Schaumburg, IL.  US Wellness Meats is proud to be a Gold Level Sponsor and will be treating guests to plenty of Organ Sausages and Ribs.  If you are in the area, the Wise Traditions Conference will be the best educational opportunity to improve health and wellness for your family.  The Weston A. Price Foundation was founded in 1999 based on the research of Dr. Weston A. Price.  His findings promote nutrient-dense foods in diet, and they have a dedicated membership that are focused on following the wise traditions of our ancestral diet.  For more information on the Conference and how to register, please click HERE

US Wellness Meats is proud to serve many Weston A. Price supporters, and in honor of that, we would like to hear from you!  Starting today, we are hosting a new
recipe contest, focusing on recipes inspired by Dr. Weston A. Price.  We are looking for recipes that feature nutrient-dense foods, traditional fats, and at least one US Wellness Meats product.  Recipes will be judged on originality, ingredients used, and the incorporation of traditional methods.  Email us a photo of the finished product for extra credit!  The lucky winner of the recipe contest will receive a $150 US Wellness Meats Gift Certificate.  Visit the blog for more information on the contest today!

Don't forget to get your turkey orders in!  Thanksgiving will be here before you know it and our
Free Range Turkeys are almost ready to go.  Email jen@grasslandbeef.com to place your order for a delicious, free range Thanksgiving Turkey.  Only a limited number are available, so be sure and place your order soon!

Why eat a
Free Range Turkey this year?  We have heard many horror stories about conventional turkey production: how turkeys have been bred to gain the most weight in the shortest amount of time, which as led to birds that cannot walk, fly, or in the worst case, even lay eggs.  This carefully engineered breeding process is harmful to the health of the birds, and to the meat itself.  Most industrial turkeys never see the light of day, they are kept in crowded barns and eat an unnatural ration of corn and grains, to fatten them as quickly as possible.  Rations are usually supplemented with antibiotics, to prevent disease from wiping out the whole herd.  Our turkeys are free range, outside all day, and hormone and antibiotic free.  One taste of a free range turkey and you will quickly appreciate the difference. 

Are you feeling uneasy about H1N1?  Have you considered getting the vaccine?  Read
Catherine's Comment below for more information. 

We have heard lots of great feedback from our
Pasture Grazing video, posted last week.  Be sure and visit us on YouTube to see exactly how our cattle get their dinner everyday, and to witness a beautiful midwest summer evening!

Best November Regards,

John, LeeAnn, Megan, Tressa, and Jennifer on behalf of the farm families of US Wellness Meats.

Most athletes gulp down a protein shake or eat an energy bar for a workout. But climbing into a jet airplane? Try a high fat meal instead.

That was the surprising finding of a new military-funded study that sought to figure out what types of foods were best for pilots when missions restricted when or what they could eat. University of North Dakota researchers found that pilots who ate the fattiest foods such as butter or gravy had the quickest response times in mental tests and made fewer mistakes when flying in tricky cloud conditions.

High-carb diets trumped high-protein in performance tests."We wound up analyzing the data every which way but upside down. It came out consistent every time," said psychology professor Tom Petros, who conducted and reviewed the tests.

Fat has been considered a villain by many nutrition experts for a long time.

Athletes and those with more physically demanding jobs generally focus on carbohydrates for performance over fat. Researchers said the study is not aimed at weight control and noted that because the pilots are young, they're able to absorb more fatty acids for brain development.

The study tracked 45 student pilots to assess how different foods affect a pilot's performance. Every three weeks, each pilot spent one week on four different diets: high-fat, high-carbohydrate, high-protein and a control diet.

The study used a flight simulator that required students to descend in cloudy weather when the runway wasn't visible and using only the plane's computers. The pilots then had to climb into a holding pattern. They also took tests that required memorizing and repeating numbers and comparing shapes.

"I could tell the difference on how well I was doing on the different diets," said Jeremy Ternes, who participated in the study. "There were times I thought, 'Wow, I was a lot more on today as compared to last week.'"

Based on their test scores, pilots on the high-fat and high-carb diets performed substantially better than the high-protein eaters. The high-fat dieters did better than the high-carb dieters.

Military experts hope the research will eventually help improve pilots' performance. National Transportation Safety Board statistics show 80 percent of civil and military accidents are caused by human error. 
"With additional research, these findings may help decrease the number of aviation accidents due to pilot error, which is especially important for the war fighter," Lindseth said.

by Catherine Ebeling, RN BSN

Cahterine Ebeling
If you tune into the news lately, all you hear about is the H1N1 pandemic and the short supply of the vaccine. Media reports of death and the widespread illness are creating panic in many.
People by the thousands are lining up to get this vaccination, but the short supply is not only creating more demand, but even panic in many cases. The news is reporting deaths from this flu, and the discussion of the widespread numbers of those coming down with the flu, are creating even more panic on the part of the general public.
And if you heard the news last week, you would have heard President Obama declaring a 'National Health Emergency' because of this. Why?
Obama's declaration that there has been 1000 deaths associated with H1N1 since the outbreak, is talked about as if this were a world wide catastrophe. While all the media attention surrounding H1N1 makes it seem so deadly; when compared to the regular seasonal flu, the death rates are actually lower than usual.

In a typical year, approximately 25,000 to 35,000 people may die from influenza-unrelated to the swine flu. Does this get reported? Is there mass panic? No-its business as usual. Then why all the hype and hysteria with the swine flu?
46 states are now reporting widespread flu activity; early for the flu season. While hospitals report crowding and large numbers in the ER, the media hysteria is also fueling this. Media reports of H1N1--its severity and the deaths reported, are causing people to seek medical help in record numbers.

Most hospital authorities are saying that they are treating any cases of influenza-like symptoms as H1N1, and clinics have stopped testing for it. Swine flu or not, this is a busy season for the flu this early.

What is normally a bad cold or the flu now becomes a seemingly "deadly illness" in the minds of the public, so the rush to the hospitals is on. Panicky parents run to the ER with their children at the first sign of sniffles.
What is the benefit in creating panic and reporting vaccine shortages? Well, it causes fear to spread through the population and in typical 'crowd mentality' we all rush to do what everyone else is doing-or what we think everyone else is doing. Could the reported shortages be intentional? Keep in mind that drug companies stand to profit around $50 BILLION from these H1N1 vaccines, so fueling that public panic is to their benefit.  
We all end up feeling a sense of urgency and emergency and it fuels this panic. Everyone rushes out to get the vaccine, thinking that the shortages will be indefinite and that if we don't get the vaccine now, we may not be protected.

The question is:  Is this as big as an emergency as we have been made to believe?

Ever Heard of Constipated Cavemen?

Al Sears, MD

Dear Readers,

I practice and promote the native health of our early ancestors. Cavemen were healthier and more robust because they lived in a more natural world. We don't.

Case in point: Cavemen had an abundant source of fiber in their diet. Only recently, with the advent of modern foods has fiber been removed from our food. And that's a problem.  You can prevent cancer, diabetes, and high cholesterol with a bit of fiber each day.  But here's the thing: not all fibers are equal. Some types of fiber are natural to our diet and some are more modern creations. I'll also show you the right way to add fiber to your diet (without chalky drinks or bland cereals).

Fiber is a thread-like structure in fruits, vegetables, seeds, and grain. And it is another one of those hot health topics where "experts" seem to contradict each other. One thing is for sure: fiber is part of a natural diet.

Not getting enough fiber causes problems:  

Irregularity: As we get older, our digestive system often needs a little help. Eating high-fiber foods and drinking water can ease stool passing through the entire digestive system.

Unhealthy Cholesterols: Researchers have found that fiber actually works in the body to reduce the absorption of cholesterol. In one recent study, participants ate a moderate-fiber diet, a high-fiber diet, or a low-fiber diet for 6 weeks. The higher the amount fiber participants ate, the more their cholesterol levels dropped.1

Colon Cancer: Intestinal contents can be some nasty stuff. The more completely carcinogens move out of the digestive tract, the better. Fiber serves to drag these toxins out with it and carcinogenic material has less chance of attacking the digestive tract.  The journal Lancet published a very large study that links high-fiber diet with a lower risk of colon cancer. Researchers used data from the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition (EPIC) study. They followed-up on almost 200,000 participants. They found that if people with a very low fiber intake doubled their intake, they reduced their risk of colorectal cancer by 40%.2

Diabetes: Fiber lowers dangerous glucose levels. Fiber slows the absorption of glucose. This action can prevent diabetes. A high-fiber diet effectively improves glucose control.3

You don't have to eat a bowl of cereal every morning to put some fiber in your diet. Actually, that bowl of cereal could be adding to your health problems. The high glycemic index of most cereals, breads, and pastas makes them poor food choices.  Additionally, since we have only had grain products available for a few thousand years, they were not our prehistoric source of fiber.

You don't need fiber supplements made from grains.  Nature has provided us with all of the natural fiber we need each day. Here are some of the best sources of natural fiber:

Nuts: Talk about roughage. Nuts provide us with some of the most effective fiber. Besides the nut itself, many nuts have a thin skin that is also a great source of fiber. A handful of nuts everyday makes for an easy fiber-filled snack. Don't let the low-fat police scare you away from nuts. They have the heart and brain healthy fats you need.

Fruit: When you eat fruit, leave the skins on. The skin is a major source of fiber. My favorite fiber-rich fruits are berries. Berries not only have fiber-rich skin; they also contain tiny edible seeds. For there sweetness, they have surprisingly low glycemic indexes. Eat a couple of servings of fruit or berries daily.

Vegetables: These foods should be your principle source of fiber, not grains. Eat the skins and edible seeds to maximize fiber. If you have problems with regularity, load up on fibrous vegetables like broccoli, spinach, collard greens, squash, eggplant, cabbage, asparagus, cucumbers and Brussels's sprouts. Eat them along with high-quality protein at every meal.

By the way, I do not consider corn a vegetable. Corn is a selectively bred enlarged grain. Like other grains, it will cause a rapid increase in your blood sugar.

Seeds: My favorites in this category are pumpkin seeds, sesame seeds and sunflower seeds. The seed pulp has fiber throughout. And the edible seed casing is an exceptional resource of bulking fiber. Seeds make great snacks. Have some every week.

Legumes: Beans are a great source of fiber. The various types of green beans are superior to dried beans. You can use beans to supplement your dietary fiber as needed.

In order to get the most benefit from your dietary fiber, you must drink plenty of liquids. Water is the best liquid. Without proper hydration, fiber can't work its magic. Also, it's best to spread your fiber intake out throughout the day. Eating all of your fiber at once can decrease its benefits.

You can find fiber products at your local vitamin or health food store. To get the constipation relief I prescribe to my patients, check out PrimalForce.net.

Over-The-Counter Natural Cures

This week we received a copy of Over the Counter Natural Cures, a must-read for anyone concerned about their health and the dangers of prescription drugs.  The People's Chemist, Shane Ellison, M.S. targets the most common diseases in America and offers natural, affordable alternatives to prescription drugs that will boost your health and help prevent disease, many for under $10.  Many health books on the market today simply talk about the various dangers, but Shane gives straight answers and tells readers exactly where to find the products you need to feel better in as few as 30 days.  He also offers powerful insights into a host of common ailments in America today. 

The excerpt below from Over-The-Counter Natural Cures comes from the Avoid Cancer Now chapter, and is a problem we hear about daily:

You know by now that there are "good" fats and "bad" fats.  And you've probably heard that small amounts of omega-6 fatty acids from seeds and plants are essential to your body.  When combined with omega-3 fatty acids from fish, omega-6 fats appear to play an integral role in maintaining health. Combined, these two fats can help regulate proper brain development, energy production, and immune function, as well as putting out the fires of inflammation.  However, large quantities of omega-6 fats can become poisonous (which is why you have to make sure your supplement soft gels aren't loaded with them from soy or vegetable oil!).

Omega-6 fatty acids promote oxygen shock by disabling one of the body's other defenses against cancer - the cells' antioxidant.  Adding insult to injury, omega-6 fats increase inflammation within skin cells.  Inflammation can be the driving force for the growth of skin cancer and its ability to spread to nearby tissues and organs.  

Like skin cancer (and many other forms of cancer), this omega-6 threat did not exist one hundred years ago.  Our ancestors only consumed small quantities of omega-6 in the form of whole corn, seeds, or legumes.  Their ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 was about 1:1.  Today, a large segment of the population consumes a ration of 20:1.

The omega-6 overdose exists thanks to the advent of technology - chemical extraction methods, to be exact.  Instead of consuming omega-6 in its natural state from plants and seeds, our primary sources today are plant and seed oils such as corn, soy, safflower, and sunflower oil.  A single tablespoon of omega-6-laden corn oil is derived from twelve to eighteen ears of corn.  Make sure you get these cancer-fertilizing oils out of your house.  

The ideal ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acids remains to be determined, although lots of speculation exists.  One thing is certain: the overdose of omega-6 predisposes us to all types of cancer.  The best thing you can do to protect against cancer is rid your diet of omega-6-laden plant and seed oils while consuming more protective omega-3 fatty acids and naturally occurring, healthy saturated fats from seeds, nuts, butter, fish, grass-fed beef, and coconut oil.

Dear Dr. Serrano,
What a gift your answers and involvement with US Wellness, and through them many of us, is! Thanks.
I discovered at 50 years of age, that I am celiac.  I am lucky in that my symptoms were not terribly serious, and non-digestive.  My bones and skin tend to be what is most reactive to gluten.  Not immediately, but over time.
It is challenging to sort out all the varied food recommendations and philosopies that about.  I value the work of Weston Price, and looking for good quality products (how I got to US WELLNESS MEATS) and am also investigating RAW FOOD DIET (much safer and easier out in the world as again simple foods.)
What do you think about RAW FOOD DIET supporting our health? What is the ratio vegetables/greens/meats that you think optimal. What do you think of eating raw meats? (is jerky raw?) (though I don't have the stomach for raw meat).
Amherst, MA

Dear M.T.;

I am the kind of person that has to look not only at research but also what happens in real life. Raw food diet is not for everybody because some people do better with digestion when cooking some vegetables and meats. I would never ask a patient to eat raw hamburger unless you do it yourself at home, and in addition certain vegetables are absorbed better when cooked.

If you don't have any digestive problems, and if EVERYTHING you eat is from a real ORGANIC place like Johns, by all means you have my blessing and I think it is awesome. 

I am going to be a devils advocate, but how about a good bone chicken marrow soup?  To get all the benefits you have to cook it, so how about the best of both worlds, eat raw what you think you can once in a while.  Enjoy!

Take Care!

Athlete Corner - Scott Mendelson Q&A

Need A Training Lift?
By: Scott Mendelson


I started working out with a friend of mine, Lucy M out of shear jealousy since she lost 15 lbs and looks great while I have slacked.  You design her training programs and I was curious as to why each rep has an assigned timing system for execution.  Whatever the reason- it is producing results for Lucy and I felt that the workout was the most productive I have ever tried since staring 2 weeks ago. 

Sharron M.
Chicago, IL


Great question- The rep speed (tempo) ensures that the trainee puts the muscles under tension for a certain length of time.  For example lowering the weight for 3 seconds, pausing on the bottom for 1, lifting in 1 sec with no rest at completion means each rep will last 5 sec x 8 reps for example is 40 seconds.  Set durations of 40-60 sec for women work very well for stimulating the production of fat burning hormones!
Proper Form= Less Injuries
Watch most people in the gym and they throw the weights up and down with no consideration for form or tempo.  This is just a way of going through the motions.  Controlling the rep speed increases the challenge tremendously and forces the muscles to work much harder by reducing momentum.  I am also a strong believer in a controlled tempo helping to improve form which prevents many common training injuries.
Boosting Fat Burning Hormones
Back to the real reason why you asked the question- the tempo is one of many factors that can be manipulated to make the body work harder.  This factor in particular is very important for increasing lactic acid which in turn boosts growth hormone which is a potent fat burning hormone.  Lucy for example started out with shorter tempos a few months ago as has gradually increased the set durations while other factors such as reps, exercises, rest periods etc have been manipulated.  Customizing these aspects to fit the needs and goals of the individual client is very important.
Benefits of Training vs. Just Exercising
Take two people of similar age, goals and body fat %, if one uses one of my customized routines and the other just "wings" it, my client will earn progress 2 to 3 times faster than the other person.  There is a huge difference between going to the gym to Exercise which is just exerting yourself vs. Training for a result.
Interval Sprints for Rapid Fat Loss
Lucy also uses an interval sprint routine- join her for one of those sessions, but be careful as she has built a base over time and you may not be able to keep up!  Short interval sessions on off weight training days are excellent for fat loss.   Most trainees are shocked when I assign a specific interval routine as they were always led to believe cardio is cardio- just do a certain number of minutes each week and you are set.  Nothing could be further from the truth as steady state cardio when done in excess actually stimulates fat storage.  Intervals on the other hand force the body to use more stored fat as fuel while naturally elevating fat burning hormones.

What Our Customers Are Saying

Dear Grassland Family,

I just had to write to let you how much I enjoyed the Filet Mignon I received last week.  I have always eaten Delmonico or Ribeye steaks, because of the flavor and always found Filet Mignon lacking in flavor. 

However, your grass fed filet is wonderful which is why I ordered six more.  The halibut and shrimp are excellent also and make my hcg diet very tolerable.  I savor every bite since I am on a restricted caloric count for the next two weeks. 

shortribsMy significant other enjoyed the beef short ribs I cooked for him yesterday as well.  Unfortunately, I couldn't eat any because of the fat content and I must keep that to a bare minimum until I am off the program in two weeks.  Again, thank you for all you do and I look forward to my next order.

$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.
