Blue Green Algae- More Than a Mood Food

by guest author Madalyn Ward, DVM

Does the food you eat affect your moods? Absolutely and in a big way. A heavy mood food like meat can slow you down and stimulants such as coffee and tea can lift you up. Foods that are prepared with love, leave you feeling better than those that are mass produced. We all have our favorite comfort mood food and it usually one our mom prepared for us as kids. All these foods have a short term affect on our moods.

But what about a mood food that acts on a deeper level of our consciousness? Is there such a thing as a pattern breaking food? I believe at least one food can help you break through deep patterns in your consciousness and it is the blue green algae, Aphanizomenon flos-aquae, from Klamath Lake.

When I was first introduced to  AFA algae, in 1993, I was very skeptical that it could have any actual health benefits for people or animals. I had seen a few animals respond well but still I doubted. Since I don't promote products I don't believe in I asked for guidance from the healing angels about the algae. I was not expecting the message I received.

A Message about the Algae received 12/31/1993
Let us talk about the algae. It is a gift to your planet to be given to those on the path of love. It is structured to trigger one's awareness of changes taking place within them and across the planet. It is more than simple nutrition. Held within the algae is a blueprint for the unfolding process to regain lost aspects of what your true selves have always been.

As you know so well, you do not use but a small portion of your talents. Humans have been unaware for so long that most live their lives in darkness. The algae causes people to wake up. It can reach so many because of its totally harmless character. There are no contra-indications for algae.

There are no situations where it won't be beneficial. All who take the algae benefit from it, whether they choose to be aware or not. New cells in the body begin functioning, and these cells are a part of your superhuman body that is encased in your current physical body. As these new cells are awakened, you will have a new lease on life. You will literally see through new eyes and hear through new ears and feel through a new heart. In a way it is indeed a pattern-breaking technology, but even more than that it is creating entirely new cells with new outlooks.

It has been almost 20 years since I first starting working with the  AFA blue green algae for myself and all types of animals. Over this time I have reflected back occasionally on the original message about the algae. I have been amazed when people would get excited about the health benefits of the products and order them only to return them immediately – unopened. In hindsight, I suspect that since the algae is more than a short term good mood food these people had deeper patterns they were not aware of or not ready to change. For myself, I have had to decrease my consumption of the algae when I found my frustration levels mounting as I attempted to shift patterns I did not fully understand. The algae is not a replacement for therapy but it can help it work faster.

I also believe the source of the AFA algae makes a difference. It does not take large doses of the AFA to make a significant difference. It does, however, take energy to shift deep patterns. You may not want to start the algae if you are sick or rundown. Better to build your life force and then begin. I am always open to sharing my experiences and helping you find the program that is the best fit for you.

Enhance Your Mental Faculties... and Maybe Your Psychic Powers Too!

by guest author: Leta Worthington, Animal Communciator

The secret is the blood-brain barrier. Sounds like something out of a horror movie, but it's really a great thing, as you will read below. But first, here's my personal story about how my own mental faculties and psychic powers were enhanced–within about half an hour. Seriously.

Twenty years ago a friend introduced me to a form of blue-green algae called Aphanizomenon flos-aquae (aka "AFA") by giving me one single capsule of  a form of algae with the cell wall removed. Within 30 minutes my whole being responded. I felt like my vibratory frequency (yes, we all have one) had been raised about 100 notches, and my physical energy and mood had been enhanced equally. I felt indescribably happy, almost euphoric. It was also easier than I had ever experienced to "tune in" to the animals I talked to for clients, and to feel and receive other types of information psychically as well. Needless to say, I bought a bottle of this algae and immediately signed up with the company so that I could order more algae any time I wanted, wholesale, and share it with others as well.

So here's why this amazing substance, especially in the form of the algae with the cell wall removed, works so well in achieving this effect. And if you don't want to read all the technical stuff, you can just skip to the last paragraph or two.The blood-brain barrier is a protective network of blood vessels and cells that filters blood flowing to the brain, thereby shielding the central nervous system from contaminants. So it's a good thing.

That said, this barrier can also have the effect of keeping out quite a few other things that might be beneficial to the brain, like nutrients in the form of less-than-perfect foods we all consume nowadays, to give just one example. Being the hungriest organ in the body, the brain voraciously desires the nutrients, but unfortunately the fillers or refined aspects of many foods prevent the good stuff from ever reaching it.

Enter algae with the cell wall removed.  This is a form of blue-green algae known as Aphanizomenon flos-aquae, acknowledged to be the oldest complete food on the planet. This particular form of algae has had its cell wall removed so that its inner goodness can pass through the blood-brain barrier unimpeded.

I could go on and on about the properties and benefits of Aphanizomenon flos-aquae, and how it provides just about every nutrient your body needs, in the form of a living, single-cell, raw food that is highly assimilable, but, in a nutshell:  it used to grow in many fresh water lakes on earth but now flourishes in only one remaining place in Oregon, Upper Klamath Lake, where it is fed by nothing but the sun and 35 feet of volcanic deposits on the bottom of the lake. This company is a 25+ year-old company that is dedicated to nothing more than safely harvesting and preserving this amazing food, and is responsible for making it available in several different forms.

This form of algae  is the one that can so easily pass the blood-brain barrier and feed your brain.

This is serious brain food, folks. Really.

So if you are feeling mentally foggy, like your head is stuffed with cotton, or you want to amp up your psychic reception, try this bluegreen algae. You can order it right HERE, right now. Oh, and also, it may help improve your spirits dramatically if you suffer from depression. I can't swear to this because depression isn't one of my monsters. (But hmmm, come to think of it, maybe that's because I've been taking algae for 20 years now.) Anyway, sure is worth a try.

Natural Solutions for Staying Active as You Age

Most of us would love to find a fountain of youth as a natural solution to combat aging. The good news is you can. Science is finding more evidence all the time of ways to deflect the aging process in our bodies. One of these is as simple as staying active.

Staying Active to Stay Youthful
Recent studies show evidence that Alzheimer's can actually be prevented by exercise. Regular exercise has also been found to increase life expectancy, protect against stroke and change our DNA making our muscles work more efficiently. During exercise the brain stimulates enzymes that are able to break down amyloid plaques that have been linked to Alzheimer's.

Besides staying active physically, there are studies that show that staying active mentally is important. One recent study found that staying active mentally produces lower amounts of a protein that forms beta amyloid plaques associated with Alzheimer's. (http://ow.ly/ewC2K)

Antioxidants to Support Staying Youthful
To stay youthful, forget about the passage of time. Instead, think about keeping your cells healthy. Antioxidants help keep your cells in peak condition.

Our bodies are made of over 75 trillion cells. These cells are under constant attack by unstable molecules called free radicals. Some of these free radical molecules are the result of natural processes in the body, while others come from the daily stresses of life, including air pollutants, smoking, alcohol, over-exertion, heavy exercise, and poor diets. Problems occur when an over abundance of free radicals exists and the body does not have enough naturally occurring antioxidants to combat them.

As your 75 trillion cells are constantly attacked by free radicals, the result is aging.
Free radicals can react with your cells' DNA and RNA, the blueprints by which your cells duplicate themselves causing heart disease, chronic pain, and other ailments related to aging.

A good way to supplement your body with antioxidants is with blue green algae. Blue green algae contains a wide range of antioxidants in the form of specific trace minerals, amino acids, vitamins and especially pigments – an impressive variety of carotenes along with potent green and blue pigments. Replicated studies have shown the potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects of phycocyanin which is found in blue green algae. (Bruno, Edible Microalgae)

This supplement gives you wheat sprouts, bluegreen algae and red beta algae combined to supply the body with antioxidant nutrition and combat the destructive effects of free radicals.

Bluegreen algae contains a vast array of micronutrients that your body uses for physical well being and to support physical health.

The saying you are only as old as you feel can certainly apply. Staying active both physically and mentally and giving your body antioxidant support, can help you combat the aging process and many of the health concerns that accompany it. Try out these natural solutions and start your own fountain of youth flowing.

How to Have Good Skin: 1.6 Million Reasons to Update Your Skincare Regimen

Why is it even important to know how to have good skin? Well, your skin is your largest body organ accounting for 16% of your body weight. The body is estimated to be made of 10 trillion cells, so that would be 1.6 trillion skin cells. (http://ow.ly/ep56Z). That's a lot of skin cells for sure, but so what. Is knowing how to have good skin really that important? You bet!

What Does Your Skin Do For You?
Here's a few things skin does that might make you realize how important a good skincare regimen is:
  • It helps protect the body from pathogens
  • Provides sensation through nerve endings warning us of things like if something is too hot
  • It conserves our body heat and prevents energy loss
  • Skin protects against fluid loss.
  • It stores lipids and water and is a means of vitamin D synthesis
  • It protects the body from losing essential nutrients
Human skin is composed of several layers and is constantly regenerating itself. New skin cells form at the lowest layer and push their way up to the top layer. Between 30,000 and 40,000 skin cells fall off every hour (http://ow.ly/ep56Z). The dead cells fall off, making room for the newer cells. About every 30 days your body has produced a completely new set of skin.

Naturopathic medicine has long recognized that skin and intestinal health are related. Many times a skin disorder such as a rash or eczema can be traced to a problem in the digestive tract. Concentrating on creating a healthy digestive tract system can support skin health and seeing issues with your skin can give you a heads up that there may be a problem with your intestinal tract.

Natural Solutions for a Skincare Regimen
To support your skin's health, you can start with supporting intestinal health. Improving your diet with more fruits and vegetables and drinking 8 glasses of pure water a day is a good place to start. Digestive enzymes and probiotics, such as Acidophilus and bifidus are another way to support good intestinal health which in turn supports skin health.

Acidophilus supports the small intestine which is involved in digestion, absorption, and transport of food. Bifidus is a pro-biotic that creates a favorable environment for the growth of "good bacteria" in the large intestine which absorbs water from food that is eaten and aids the body in removing waste products. This full spectrum probiotic contains 12 key "good bacteria" that are microblended with bluegreen, Jerusalem artichoke, and an acerola and rose hips blend which all work to promote the growth of friendly bacteria in the digestive tract. Enzymes such as these and these enhanced enzymes aid in digestion of food so that the body can absorb the nutrients required to build cells, tissues and organs.

To support your skin from the outside, this antioxidant lotion with WGP Beta Glucan is an excellent choice for providing nutrition to the skin. With ingredients like vitamin E, organic blue-green algae, and wholesome oils, all working together to minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, stimulate the skin's immune system, and help protect against the effects of free radicals, your skin gets a break from the stressors of the environment. .

Now that you know how to have good skin, why it is important to keep your skin healthy and how to maintain a good skincare regimen, what are you waiting for? Start now by getting up and getting a glass of pure water and piece of fruit!

Got Chronic Pain? Natural Solutions to Support Your Body

Are you living with chronic pain or know someone who is? Did you know 100 million people in the United States suffer from chronic pain? That's $635 billion spent in treatments and loss of workers' time. That's a lot! There is some good news though for chronic pain sufferers.

New Evidence About Chronic Pain
There is new evidence that chronic pain may not just be the result of an underlying condition. New studies are showing that chronic pain can be its own condition. After living with pain for so long, the brain can actually store the memory of it, so that even after the original disorder causing the pain is gone, the pain remains. There is some evidence that suggests chronic pain can even be genetic.

Treating Chronic Pain
Traditionally, chronic pain has been treated with medications that target inflammation or block pain. There are studies now showing that chronic pain can respond well to untraditional types of treatment including acupuncture, massage, hypnosis and that even positive thinking can make a difference.

Natural Products Can Support Your Body
We have several products to recommend that can provide natural solutions to help support your body for optimal health and give immune system support.

Stem Cell Support–
This stem cell support supplement is a unique blend of natural ingredients including green tea extract, wild blueberry, the antioxidant amino acid carnosine, blueberry extract, and vitamin D, all of which support your body's own renewal systems. Many of the ingredients in this supplement are antioxidants. As oxidation of iron causes rust, our bodies heal less effectively if cells are damaged by free radicals. Antioxidants are very important in promoting a healthy immune system which can aid in prevention of disease leading to chronic pain symptoms.

Sprouts Supplement –
This supplement contains a super concentration of custom-grown wheat sprouts, bluegreen  and Red beta algae. These three ingredients combined supply the body with antioxidant nutrition that may help combat the destructive effects of highly unstable, reactive molecules known as free radicals. Free radicals are a by-product of normal metabolism, and the human body is designed to handle a limited amount of them. When the body is subjected to various forms of stress, including emotional pressures, overexertion, environmental pollutants, and the aging process, the production of free radicals can quickly overextend those limits leaving the body vulnerable to attack and disease that can lead to chronic pain.

Immune System Support Supplement –
This supplement fortifies your immune system so it can better fight to keep you healthy. It is an all-natural supplement, containing the active ingredient WGPtm beta glucan, a patented form of the complex carbohydrate beta glucan, which is found in the cell walls of baker's yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) and has long been known to have immune boosting properties. A stronger immune system means less disease and the chronic pain that can result.

Bluegreen Algae –
Bluegreen Algae is designed to promote physical health and immune system function. A healthy immune system leads to the body being able to fight off disease, some of which can lead to chronic pain.

Coenzyme Q10 -
This supplement contains a special enzyme activator called coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10). CoQ10 is essential for life to exist, as it is an integral part of energy production within every cell. Studies have shown that if the essential levels of CoQ10 are allowed to decline, and the body's vital organs and systems cannot meet their energy requirements, serious health concerns may arise. The combination of premium antioxidants, 30mg of coenzyme Q10 and 85mg of bluegreen algae in this supplement can aid in keeping a healthy immune system and give the body the essential levels of CoQ10 it needs to stay fit.

If you suffer with chronic pain, it's good to know there are natural solutions that can help. Check with your health care provider and see if he or she is aware of the newest information and if any of these natural solutions can help with your pain. If your provider is not aware, be pro-active in finding one who is. You owe it to yourself to see if there is a natural solution to relieve your chronic pain.

Leaky Gut Syndrome and Food Allergies

Leaky gut syndrome and food allergies are two of the challenges our intestinal systems face today. Both theses issues can cause a variety of symptoms from mild swelling and gas to extreme cramping, aches and pains.

A small percentage of the population has actual food allergies that include symptoms of hives, itchy eyes, difficulty breathing and anaphylaxis. A higher percentage have food intolerances or are hypersensitive to certain foods. These symptoms include fatigue, anxiety, muscle pain, gas bloating, diarrhea and headaches. This occurs mostly when food is improperly digested. It also quite often happens in conjunction with leaky gut syndrome.

Leaky Gut Syndrome
Not a lot is known about leaky gut syndrome by doctors except for its symptoms which include bloating, gas, cramps, food sensitivities and aches and pains. It is more of a category of symptoms than a diagnosis and doctors are often at a loss when it comes to finding causes and how to treat it.

Doctors believe it is possibly caused by tight junctions in the gut, that control what can pass the lining of the small intestine, not working properly and allowing substances to leak into the bloodstream. It can also be caused by some types of disease, certain drugs, radiation therapy, chronic stress, diet or food allergies.

Poor Digestion
For good digestion to occur, the stomach must have enough enzymes to process food. "Leaky gut syndrome" can let undigested proteins, carbohydrates and fats through to the blood system and cause the immune system to react to these as foreign invaders. Food allergies are also known to be linked to poor digestion. When the digestive system is not functioning properly it can lead to all the symptoms associated with leaky gut syndrome.

Natural Solutions
Lifestyle changes of eating a healthier diet and stress reduction are currently the best forms of treatment for leaky gut syndrome. Other forms of treatment may be available from your doctor if he or she can arrive at a diagnosis of the cause. At the current time however the medical profession has limited knowledge for causes.

Scientific studies have shown that algae can reduce allergic sensitivity to milk and soybean and may enhance antibodies that can protect against or reduce allergic reactions to foods such as shellfish.

AFA blue green algae, with its cartoenes and chlorophyll, is able to help cells around the intestinal wall secrete lubricating material that can help prevent the immune system from over-reacting.

Acidophilus and bifidus along with enzymes can help keep your digestive system in good working order. Acidophilus supports intestinal health by creating a favorable environment for the growth of beneficial flora and promotes the normal movement of food through the intestine. Bifidus lowers the pH of the intestine, manufactures specific B vitamins, promotes immune function, and supports the health of the large intestine. Enzymes contain a combination of enzymes to help break down all types of foods (including fats, carbohydrates, protein, and fiber) for improved digestion and optimal nutrition. Bluegreen Algae provides an easily digestible natural complex that is critical for the health and vitality of tissues and cells. To get all of these in one easy, convenient packet, check out  HERE.

So the natural way to help with your leaky gut syndrome symptoms and food intolerances is to reduce stress, eat a healthy diet and supplement that diet with bluegreen algae, acidophilus, bifidus and digestive enzymes. Your gut will be glad you did.

How to Support Your Memory with Natural Solutions

How's your memory? Where did I put my keys? What did I come in here for? Who was I supposed to call? Do any of these sound familiar? Probably. Most of us have memory lapses from time to time. Memory loss can range from occasional forgetfulness to Alzheimer's and dementia for a variety of reasons.

What Causes Memory Loss?
Memory loss can come from many different sources including
  • disease
  • head injury
  • lack of sleep 
  • depression
  • alcohol and drug use
  • medication
  • strokes
  • loss of brain cells
  • stress
Nutrition and Memory Loss
The brain needs a diet that includes high quality fats and proteins to function properly. Vitamin B1 and B12 are especially important to prevent memory loss. For good brain health you need a diet with foods that provide amino acids and nutrients the brain needs to function well. These include peanuts, eggs, grains, soybeans, potatoes, legumes, almonds, beets, milk, fish, meat, bananas, yogurt and cheese.

Natural Solutions for Memory Loss
Although no one natural solution has been found to completely combat all types of memory loss, there are several supplements that have been found to improve memory, reduce the risk of severe memory loss or benefit memory recovery to some extent. Some of these include:
  • Ginkgo Biloba
  • Omega-3 
  • Acetyl-L carnitine (amino acid)
  • Vitamin E
  • Asian ginseng
Healthy Brain
The most important thing we can each do to reduce our risk of memory loss is to support a healthy brain. Many things in our environment today, such as pollution and pesticides, increase our exposure to toxins. The blood brain barrier works to protect the brain from toxins and allow in the nutrients it needs. Oxygen, water and glucose are able to pass through the blood brain barrier, whereas other molecules can be accepted or rejected. 

The human brain requires oxygen and a high concentration of nutrients. The brain's main source of energy is glucose. It also needs protein however and proteins are not able to pass through the blood brain barrier until they break down into amino acids. Research has shown that poly unsaturated fatty acid and especially DHA are vital for brain development. Omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, important nutrients for healthy brain, are also able to permeate the blood brain barrier.


How Algae Supports Brain Health
Studies have shown that AFA blue-green algae can help reduce stress. It also contains beta-carotenes and antioxidants that can help protect the central nervous system from oxidative stress.

Brain tissue is mostly made of lipids which are especially sensitive to oxidative damage. "Beta-carotene offers powerful anti-cancer, anti-aging, and antioxidant properties without the toxic risks of taking fat-soluble vitamin A." (Jeffery Bruno, Edible Microalgae). Studies have shown that beta-carotene may provide protection against memory impairment and general brain damage. Microalgae is one of the richest sources of beta-carotene.

This form of bluegreen Algae is the heart of the algae with the cell wall removed and is an abundant source of raw materials for enhancing brain activity. Amino acids found in this type of algae is the building blocks of healthy nerve cells and neurotransmitters needed for the brain to function properly. This type of algae also provides essential omega-3 fatty acids and helps maintain normal, healthy blood chemistry that feeds the brain.

How to Support Your Memory with Natural Solutions - The Bottom Line
In a nutshell, a healthy diet high in fruits, vegetables and nuts that also includes dairy, fish, poultry and olive oil has been shown to be optimal in supporting a healthy brain. Add exercise and learning new things to this type of diet and, of course, eat your algae, and you will be on your way to good brain health.
