Liverwurst is hard to find in stores, as it usually
contains the typical list of fillers and preservatives. Not here! Our
Beef Liverwurst is made with 100% grass-fed ground
beef, liver, heart and kidney. We throw in an assortment of healthy spices and the end product
is a tasty and clean Liverwurst! We have had many customers tell us it reminds them of what
their grandparents made them as children. Not only is it tasty, but healthy! Liver is
chock-full of nutrients and an essential part of any diet. Unfortunately, the strong taste and
"tang" of liver that many people dislike keeps it missing from diets. Luckily, our liver is
cleverly combined within the Liverwurst and has a smooth taste. Try some today while it is

The Easy Way to Drop Fat
By: Al Sears, MD
Dear Health-Conscious Reader,
What if the central point of the
entire weight-loss industry were all wrong?
Trainers and weight "specialists" tell you
the only way to drop weight is to consume fewer calories or to melt more calories.
they made a mistake. It isn't. Because they left out the most important thing: what your body does
with the calories.
And your body can decide to do other things with the calories besides
building fat. It's a decision your body makes depending on the environment you put it in.
And you can control the environment you put it in. One of the biggest ways is with two small

than carbs or fat. Protein boosts your sensitivity to a hormone called leptin. This hormone tells
your brain that you're full. As a result, you feel satisfied. Overeating stops.
is important for both losing weight and gaining muscle. A very revealing study makes a point I
always try to get across to my patients: People who increased their protein intake, shed fat and
In fact, the people who ate a high-protein diet dropped seven pounds in
six weeks. The group who followed a standard diet didn't drop any weight. And, the high-protein
group simultaneously gained twice as much muscle.
Also, getting enough protein tells your
body that times are good, and flips your metabolic switch from "store fat" to "melt fat." Then your
body will use the calories as essential fuel to function at its best...

Alzheimer's: Just Another Form of Diabetes?
By: Kelley Herring
A recent article about Alzheimer's
in a major health publication stated that "Age is the biggest risk factor for the disease." The
author was referring to the fact that the prevalence of Alzheimer's doubles every five years in
people over 65.
The same is true for most chronic diseases (including macular
degeneration, cancer, heart disease and others). Their prevalence increases as we grow older. But
this is merely a correlation. Age itself is not the "cause" of these diseases.
Degenerative diseases have very little to do with chronological aging. Instead, they are the
long-term ramification of unhealthy choices. It is the end result of chronic stress, poor nutrition
and toxic overload that occurs over a long period of time.
But here's the good news:
There is a lot you can do right now to protect health (and your memory) tomorrow. And the first step
to protecting your memory into your golden years is to dramatically reduce your sugar intake.
Type 3 Diabetes: The Blood Sugar Connection to Alzheimer's
you know that insulin isn't just produced in the pancreas... but also in the brain?
It's true. And just as the
cells of the pancreas wear out over time due to excess levels of sugar in the diet, it can also
cause brain cells to deteriorate insulin receptors there to malfunction. This can lead to those
embarrassing "senior moments"... and potentially Alzheimer's.
In fact, researchers
from Brown Medical School are now calling Alzheimer's "Type 3 Diabetes" and link the disease to
impaired blood sugar metabolism. When these researchers looked at the brain tissue of 45 Alzheimer's
patients, they found abnormal protein deposits that were similar to those found in the pancreases of
It's no wonder that people with diabetes have a 65% increased risk of

Chemist Gives Three Toxic Reasons to End Water Fluoridation
Shane "The People's Chemist" Ellison
All Rights Reserved (C)
Water fluoridation has been hailed by the
Centers for Disease Control (CDC) as "one of 10 great public health achievements of the 20th
century," for its purported ability to prevent tooth decay. But, you can't believe everything the
government tells you...Behind this glowing accolade lies a glaring scientific truth: fluoridation is
one of the greatest public health threats of modern times.
It started in the early 1950's, and today, water fluoridation
continues, with buckets of sodium fluoride, sodium fluorosilicate, and fluorosilicic acid (FSA)
being dumped into our drinking water. By definition, it's forced medication, yet millions are
unaware of the effects.
dentists have asserted that water fluoridation is safe. But they're starting to catch on to the
truth. In an interview with fellow and past president of the International Academy of Oral Medicine
and Toxicology and author of Whole-Body Dentistry, Mark A. Breiner, DDS said that, "Adding fluoride
to drinking water is a massive human experiment." I couldn't agree more. This experiment underscores
three reasons why we should end water fluoridation now.
Reason #1: Fluoride Causes Joint Pain and
fluoride compounds attack the structural integrity of our insides. Collagen, a web-like network
connecting our skeletal system to muscles, is torn apart by fluoride. We feel it as joint stiffness,
ligament damage, and aching bones. This same mechanism leads to browning of teeth, an outcome known
as fluorosis. A whopping 23-30% of children living in areas with fluoridated drinking water suffer
from these side effects.
#2: Fluoride Can Cause Cancer
Cancer rates are at an all-time high. The best way to reverse the trend would be to highlight
environmental cancer risks like consuming fluoridated water. As early as 1984, laboratory studies
began showing how fluoride damaged the DNA of mammalian cells, giving rise to uncontrolled cell
growth. This didn't stop the push to continue the mass fluoride medication experiment.
Physicians on the front lines of illness are
seeing the side effects. When asked about water fluoridation, Dr. Gary Mezo, a Family Practice &
Emergency PA-C/ARNP for 27 years told me that he is "against water fluoridation simply based on the
multiple cancer risks associated with it, particularly bone cancer." Population studies show that
those who drink fluoridated water are up to seven times more likely to suffer from bone
Reason #3: Ingesting
Fluoride Doesn't Prevent Cavities (dental caries)
Fluoride in the water doesn't protect against cavities. I don't care
if a million dentists believe this to be true, it simply isn't. Studies on fluoride ingestion prove
it. It's pretty straightforward. Those who swallow fluoride, do not have less cavities than those
who do not. In 2001, The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention made this information public,
stating that, "The prevalence of dental caries in a population is not inversely related to the
concentration of fluoride in enamel, and a higher concentration of enamel fluoride is not
necessarily more efficacious in preventing dental caries."
To protect yourself from cavities, Dr. Andrew M. Goldsmith, DDS.,
told me via email that the main objective should not be fluoridation of water. Instead, he asserts
that it "should be focused on education and thereby improving oral hygiene and decreasing the
consumption of fermentable carbohydrates,for example sugar." In addition, add a xylitol based
toothpaste to your daily brushing routine and you're sure to thwart cavities.
Water is perfect the way it is. Add any single
ingredient to it and you screw it up. It's the only substance that can exist as a solid, liquid or
gas at temperatures here on Earth. The two hydrogen atoms that share an affinity for oxygen cause
the water molecule to be V-shaped. These unique properties allow it to give life to everything on
the planet, all by itself. Any single impurity strips water of its molecular supremacy. Add a dash
of salt to boiling water, it cools off. Toss a fistful of it on ice, it melts faster. Similarly,
when we drink water laced with fluoride our biochemistry changes for the worst.

Body Pool Ready for Memorial Day?
Burn 10-20 lbs of Fat in 30 Days with A
Great Set of
I met one of your clients in the gym who is in
great shape, he has the body everyone wants and he raves about your programs and he suggested I talk
to you ASAP! I want to build up my arms while losing body fat and not sure what to do. The
goal is to drop ten pounds of flab in 30 days, but I need a simple nutrition plan to follow that I
know will work - what do you suggest?
I can help
you achieve those goals in an aggressive time period to make sure your guns are ready to show off
this summer. You asked for a simple yet effective nutrition plan and the Zero Tolerance Fat
Loss Plan is the ticket to 10-20 lbs of fat loss in 30 days. I suggest an intense approach
working towards short term goals which will require effort. However, after reaching your fat
loss goals with ZTP maintaining the low level of body fat will be much easier and allow for more
freedom with the diet. Otherwise the half-hearted approach that many people take just never
gets them anywhere.
Talking Muscle Heads
99% of trainees keep
the palm up when doing curls and the palms neutral when performing tricep exercises which neglect
other heads of the muscle that must be stimulated for excellent development. The routine below
uses a strategic strip set to correct common weaknesses first, which pre-fatigues the muscles
allowing for the stronger heads to also undergo excellent fiber stimulation. There is more to
developmental balance that what one would think.
Weak muscle heads cause the
nervous system to shut down growth of stronger heads to avoid injury. The nervous system plays
a huge role in both the strength and growth of muscles. Kill the nerve within a muscle and it
will die quickly no matter what nutrients you intake. Building up weak muscle heads will allow
the entire structure to grow like crazy! Train as hard as you want but without balance you
will not win the growth or strength game, while promoting major injury. My clients who start
out with the most imbalances see the fastest progress as the body responds very quickly to
corrective work. The longer and harder you have been training the greater the size of many
strength deficits, allowing for a great opportunity for rapid improvements. It is common for a
client to put on ten pounds of muscle during a 12-week training phase just by focusing on neglected
Advanced Trainees Must Use Near Constant Strategic Change to Stimulate
Trainees with ten or more years in the gym must
execute routines with the finer details hammered out to keep progress going. My advanced
client programs have execution changes built in every 1-2 weeks to ensure growth and fat loss
stimuli are fresh to the nervous system. The harder you make the muscles work with fresh
stimuli the more beneficial the stimulation of muscle fibers. However, there must be a clear
method to the madness as changes at random can be detrimental to progress...

Roasted Pork Sirloin&n
For the Sauce:
- 1 granny smith
apple, peeled, cored and diced into small cubes
- 1/4 cup chicken stock/broth
- 1/2 cup applesauce (no sugar added)
- 1/2 cup
- 1 tbsp white wine
- 1/2 tsp black pepper
- 1/2 tsp
- It will take a
day or two to thaw this roast in the fridge, so be sure to pull it out of the freezer at least two
days before needing it.
- Combine the salt, pepper, garlic, and herbs into a small bowl. The herb rub
used on this roast is similar to my eye of round roast recipe, and for good reason: it works! This
savory outside rub makes a crisp, salty outer shell around the roast which pairs beautifully with
the honey/apple sauce we'll create later.
- Preheat your oven to 475 degrees. Rinse the roast and pat it
dry with paper towels. Rub the roast with the herb mixture, and place the roast on a baking sheet
that is lined with tin foil and a wire rack. Place the roast in the oven on a lower rack and cook
for 30 minutes at 475 degrees, then reduce the heat to 350 and roast for another 60 minutes. Start
checking it after 45 minutes with an instant-read thermometer. Once it's reached an internal
temperature of 145, remove the roast from the oven, put it onto a cutting board, tent it with tin
foil and let it rest for ten minutes.
- In a pan, add the chicken broth, applesauce, honey, white
wine, black pepper, and cinnamon and heat on medium heat. Pour any of the roast's leftover drippings
from the cooking sheet into the sauce as well. Simmer on medium heat for five minutes, allowing the
honey to thicken the sauce as it reduces.
- Add the apple chunks and reduce the heat to low, and allow it
to continue to simmer for a couple minutes as you prepare the roast.
- Remove the tin foil and
carefully cut away the kitchen twine holding the roast together.
- Slice into thin slices
and place them in a serving dish.
- As you plate the pork slices, pour some of the sauce over the
slices. You don't need a ton of sauce, just enough to have a little with every bite.
