Lactobacillus and the Use of Antibiotics
Lactobacillus is a type of bacteria found in the intestinal tract and genital systems and is also found in fermenting products such as yogurt and dietary supplements. Antibiotics can cause diarrhea and labtobacillus has been used to help restore normal balance of intestinal bacteria eliminating the diarrhea. It has also been used for vaginal and urinary tract infections. Lactobacillus should not be taken without a physician’s approval if the body’s immune system is weakened by diseases such as HIV/Aids or organ transplant recipients because they might already be taking supplements containing live bacteria.
Researchers conducted a meta-analysis of ten randomized, blinded, placebo-controlled studies to evaluate the efficacy of Lactobacillus probiotic in preventing antibiotic associated diarrhea. The studies were found in the MEDLINE, EMBASE and Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials databases. The ten studies included a total of 1,862 patients where six of the studies were in patients 18 years or older and four of the studies in patients younger than 18 years of age. The overall results revealed that the risk of developing antibiotic-associated diarrhea was significantly lower with Lactobacillus as compared with placebo. After a subgroup analysis, it was determined that the probiotic did not significantly reduce the risk of antibiotic-associated diarrhea in pediatric patients. It appears that administration of Lactobacillus as a prophylactic agent during antibiotic treatment may reduce the risk of antibiotic-associated diarrhea in adults, but not in pediatric patients.1

This study illustrates the necessity of taking probiotics during and after the the use of antibiotics.
Q: MY COLONOSCOPY LAST MONTH, SHOWED NO POLYPS THIS TIME BUT IT WAS NOTED THAT INTESTINE WAS QUITE NARROW DUE TO DIVERTICULOSIS…I HAVE BEEN TAKING SUPER POWER ENZYMES, ONE PILL EACH MORNING AND HAVE HAD NO FLAREUPS IN LAST TWO YEARS WHILE TAKING THESE…..PRIOR COLONOSCOPIES (3) HAVE ALWAYS SHOWN POLYPS THAT WERE REMOVED…. IS THERE SOMETHING BETTER FOR MY DIGESTION THAT YOU COULD SUGGEST?
A: I would add the Probiotic FloraHealth (1 per day) and a (1 Tbsp/day) of the Ultra Supreme Greens powder. If you want to cover every base, add an ounce of noni juice each day. It’s amazing for the stomach and intestines.
Let me know if you have any additional questions or need any help with ordering the products.

Probiotics harm germs, aid immune system!
By Dr. Richard Beliveau
Probiotics are friendly bacteria that play an essential part in maintaining good health. A recent study suggests their positive role could be the result of the bacteria’s ability to physically interact with the intestine’s mucous membranes.
It’s become so common to associate microbes with illness that a lot of people are horrified when they find out our bodies contain 10 times more bacteria than human cells.
The bacteria that live in the lower section of our intestine, the colon, likely are the best example of the central role these microorganisms play in our health. The intestine is the part of the body most exposed to foreign pathogens. As a result, it contains the majority, about 75%, of the body’s immune cells.
The large number of intestinal bacteria (up to 10,000 billion per gram of content) plays a crucial role in the development and repair of the immune system.
In order to do its job well, the intestinal flora must be made up mostly of beneficial bacteria that take up the most space possible to stop the harmful effects of pathogens, or germs.
Among the “friendly” bacteria, probiotic bacteria are considered to have the most positive effect on the composition of intestinal flora.
In an environment without oxygen such as the colon, these bacteria are able to use lactic acid to break down food fibre, thereby acidifying the intestine and slowing the spread of several pathogens, which prefer to multiply in less harsh conditions.
So how does a probiotic bacterium decide to make the intestine its home? A multidisciplinary research team in Europe found that probiotic bacteria had genes that helped produce pili, the hair-like appendages that are essential to probiotic bacteria’s ability to attach themselves to the intestinal wall, and the reason they choose the intestine.
The discovery of pili specific to probiotic bacteria is all the more interesting since previous studies showed these appendages stimulate the immune system.
This research shows the positive effects from probiotics aren’t a random occurrence, but are directly tied to the intrinsic ability of these microorganisms to work with our bodies and influence our immune systems.
We have two really good products that offer the benefits discussed above:
A combination of 8 different species of beneficial bacteria – Four (4) billion viable organisms. Includes FOS to assist healthy growth of acidophilus and bifidus organisms – Enteric coated, delivering its microflora directly to the small intestine. Stable at room temperature – Requires no refrigeration.
|Super Power Enzymes™
Our Super Power Enzymes™ contain a comprehensive blend of potent digestive enzymes plus HCl and pepsin. The pancreatin and ox bile are specially coated to allow for release in the intestines where they are needed most for the digestion of fat and starches. All the other components are allowed to dissolve in the stomach promoting almost complete pre-digestion of proteins.
Marine Phytoplankton Provides Significant Wellness and Life Giving Properties
In an article recently published in the Yale University Journal of Marine Research, the power stored chemically in the world’s phytoplankton equaled 63 billion kilowatts. Thus, marine phytoplankton is not only an incredible source of nutrition as the foundation of the food chain, but is a potentially huge source of bio-energy as well.
Eating closer to the base of the food web (primary producers), transfers more energy and nutrients to you. It is reassuring to know that a microscopic but highly powerful organism like marine phytoplankton contains the positive energy that we need to thrive, despite the hazards of environmental toxicity, stress and nutrient-depleted food.
Marine phytoplankton provides a rare and complete food that gives the body virtually all of the raw materials that it needs, in one single source, to produce healthy new cells and neurochemicals for the body and the brain. Phytoplankton have an alkaline pH which is what you want, to combat the disease producing effects of acidity. (Cancer cells like to grow in an acidic environment).
What is marine phytoplankton? "Phyto" meaning plant or light "plankton" meaning floating or suspended.
Marine Phytoplankton are single celled plants which are one the simplest life forms on planet Earth. But they are far from simple – they are microscopic, single celled algae that float and live in the ocean and are so small, they are not even visible to the naked eye. All phytoplankton are nutrient-rich, and as such are the basic staple diet for multitudes of oceanic life, and the very existence of the marine ecosystem depends upon them. The elements and electrolytes in plankton are ideal for the human body, and are in perfect balance with nature's plan to support life. Phytoplankton has unique and specialized nutrients that are not available from any other source. Whales live to be 150 years old without eating anything else.
"Marine Phytoplankton is an ideal food for mankind. It's Mother Earth's milk from the ocean. The research we are designing at the University of Utah Medical School testing the health benefits of Marine Phytoplankton is very exciting and promising. Marine Phytoplankton contain many elements available no where else. You may have heard of fresh water phytoplankton like Spirulina and Chlorella. These algae also have many health benefits, however, with the 200+ separate species of marine phytoplankton, their nutritional profile is second to none! " – Hugo Rodier, MD, Nutritional professor at University of Utah Medical School
Marine Phytoplankton — A Nutritional Wellspring!
"One of those rare products that contains almost everything you need for life (and the rebuilding of a healthy life) is phytoplankton. It contains the nine amino acids that the body cannot make and must be consumed in our diet (essential amino acids). The essential fatty acids are also present (Omega 3 and Omega 6). Vitamins A (betacarotine), 81 (thiamine), 82 (riboflavin), 83 (niacin), 85 (pantothenic acid), 86 (pyridoxine), 812 (cobalamin), C, and D (tocopherol) and major and trace minerals are all present in phytoplankton. In short, it contains almost everything one needs to sustain life. Therefore, it contains almost everything one needs to restore health by providing the raw materials to make new cells that function normally. This is particularly true if one stops putting toxic materials such as artificial sweeteners and trans fats (partially hydrogenated fats) into our body." – Dr. Jerry Tennant, M.D.
Some of the health benefits you may realize from taking Marine Micro Phytoplankton are:
Immune system support and enhancement, normalizes blood sugar levels, antioxidant protection, supports normal cholesterol levels, alkalizing – helping improve the pH balance of the body, anti-inflammatory effects on membranes – relieves joint pain, supports healthy blood pressure, cell wall improvement through increased permeability and flexibility, detoxification and cleansing (supports removal of toxins from cells & organs), supports weight loss, increases energy and vitality, skin care – such as acne, neurological support, supports a healthy liver, improved vision – some say even more effective than lutein.
The bottom line – Marine Micro Phytoplankton is a nutritional power-house and it is a primary ingredient in our Liquid Power Multi-V™.
Take a look at our very popular liquid Power Multi-V™!
Many research studies have validated the fact that one of the most powerful ways to extend life is to reduce food intake (calories) while still maintaining nutritional needs. Organisms ranging from yeast to mammals experience a much longer and healthier life if they consume just two-thirds of the calories they normally eat. Experiments with rodents, for instance, have increased life span by 50% through dietary caloric restrictions.
Note: Calorie restriction is great in theory but I have found that the average American is not ready to embrace the concept, at least not at this moment in time. 50% if the American population is either overweight or obese.
Wouldn’t it be great if there were a way to mimic the positive effect of calorie restriction without having to change ones diet, by using a dietary supplement. Well, scientists have found a way to do just that. Researchers discovered that Resveratrol, a natural phytonutrient, can mimic the beneficial effects of calorie restriction. (Resveratrol is a polyphenolic phytonutrient found in the dark, red grape skins, red wine [red grape juice is not as good a source as whole red grapes or wine]. It is also found, in lower quantities, in mulberries and peanuts [especially in boiled peanuts]).
Resveratrol is best known for its suspected role in the “French Paradox”, which is the low incidence of heart disease in the French even though they eat a high fat diet. The “French Paradox” is related to the consumption of red wine.
|Resveratrol Biological Activity
How Resveratrol Works
In order to understand more clearly Resveratrol’s function and longevity we must understand the calorie restriction connection to longevity. Caloric restriction seems to work by stimulating specific genes, now called “Longevity Genes”. Stimulation of these genes seems to be critical in creating specific beneficial life extension effects. Dr. D.C. Sinclair and Dr. L. Guarente at Harvard Medical School and MIT, respectively, and others have determined that resveratrol seems to act by activating the same genes as calorie restriction. Thus, taking resveratrol seems to do the same thing as caloric restriction and does it under normal calorie intake.
Note: I feel that resveratrol is an amazing dietary supplement but it’s not a justification to eat improperly or consumer too many calories. Eating right and exercising everyday is the hallmark of any anti-aging program.

These are our organic Acai Products:
Acai is not a diet product!
We get 5-6 e-mails per day talking-up the virtues of acai as a weight-loss miracle. We hate to be the one to break the bad news to you all, but acai has as much weight-loss capability as do red grape skins or blueberry skins. The ability of any of the products mentioned, when taken alone, to create an environment where weight just melts off is a bald-faced lie. Meaning, if you continued with your normal way of life and just add acai to your diet, changed nothing else, NO weight would be lost. You may physically and/or mentally feel better, because acai is a potent antioxidant and antioxidants neutralize toxic free-radicals, but it is not a weight loss miracle.
There are many examples of acai berry scams that suggests people will lose between 22-30 pounds in 14 days. Free Trail! No risk guarantee! Dr. Perricone, Dr Oz, and Oprah endorse it! The list goes on and on.
Come on people, it’s hogwash!
Quality: The first step is finding a company who creates a quality, organic, pure acai products who will not rip you off. Since acai is so popular these days, many manufacturers have entered the market, creating inferior quality acai products with fillers and additives which give you none of the benefits that pure organic acai will give you.
Free Trail Marketing Scams: (They are not really free because you have to pay shipping!) The reason they charge you for shipping is so they can get your credit card info. Then in 30 days they charge your card again between $75 and $100 for a new order and enrollment in a health news letter. If you want to cancel future orders (or like many, didn’t read the fine print and so didn’t realize you signed up for something) it is difficult to contact them or even find a phone number. We have had dozens of calls to our company by frustrated people trying to locate the company they ordered the “free” sample from so they can cancel future orders.
This is just the simple truth!
I have been taking acai for years now and I still weigh the same (I eat great and I exercise 3-4 days a week. But I am not taking it for weight-loss, I am taking acai strictly for its incredible antioxidant powers). I love acai and I sell a ton of it in my practice, I just don’t sell it for weight-loss. That would be highly unethical and not worth the money I would make. –Dr. E.
Acai is a great product and has many important health benefits, but companies with absolutely no credibility or ethics are filling the internet with mis-statements and promises!

Berries – the “Superfruit”
Who could have imagined?
While mom always recommended getting those extra servings of fruits and vegetables, she probably wasn’t aware of all the health benefits packed into those nutrient-dense pieces of produce. She might likewise be stunned at the impact delivered by the smallest of fruits—berries. With rich nutritional value, berries can be found in a range of dietary supplements, functional foods and beverages, and even cosmeceutical products.
Among their health benefits:
Antioxidant Effects: reduce brain aging, enhance memory and reduce oxidative stress
Cardiovascular Protection: enhance the strength of the blood vessels, prevent oxidation of low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol, reduce plaque formation and increase plasma’s antioxidant capacity
Eye Health: prevent the onset of cataracts via reduced oxidation, increase blood flow and blood vessel strength and regenerate rodopsin
Anti-Diabetic Effects: reduce diabetic angiopathy and improve starch digestion
Antiviral/Antimicrobial Properties: reduce the onset of colds, protect against infections from microbes such as Helicobacter pylori and those causing urinary tract infection (UTI)
Although the exact active ingredients responsible for all these health benefits in berries have yet to be fully determined, it has been speculated that anthocyanins are the key class of compounds acting singly or synergistically. These are present as glucoside monomers, responsible for the intense red and purple colors noted with berries, or combined (proanthocyanins), which are colorless and serve as copigments. Anthocyanins react with atmospheric oxygen or light, which can polymerize the compounds, losing their color and causing fruit to brown.
Botanically, berries are fruits, meaning they originate from mature ovaries of flowers that have been pollinated. Specifically, berries originate from single flowers with one superior ovary with one or more seeds that entirely ripens to an edible pericarp. A berry then can be described as a fleshy/pulpy fruit of specific origin with embedded seeds that remain undischarged (indehiscent). Berries have been used as drug preparations in Europe for treating various inflammatory and circulatory conditions associated with vascular health, specifically for treating venous inflammation (edemas and tiredness of lower limbs), treating capillary fragility of skin and soft tissue (gum and nose bleeding) and treating acute attack of piles and circulatory disorders of the retina. ………… Click here to read more!
Don’t forget about our two newest products!
Power Multi-V Vegi Capsules™:
This product is comparable to our Liquid V Power Multi Vitamin, but in a conveniently portable capsule form. It doesn’t need refrigeration, and the capsules are so easy to take along when traveling. Not only do you get your vitamins and minerals, it includes all the following great greens: spirulina, barley grass, chlorella, wheat grass, alfalfa juice concentrate, and green tea extract. For a full list of its ingredients see the Nutrition Facts on our website.
Absolute Goji Powder™:
A wonderfully easy way to get your Goji. This powder is easy to mix into a shake, smoothie or yogurt and can also be sprinkled on foods such as cereal and oatmeal. Travelers also find the powder form more convenient than juice. Priced affordably at just $24.99 for a 30-40 day supply.
Did you know. . . Aside from the many traditional and therapeutic uses of goji which we have listed on our website, we have also found that goji has been used to reduce sugar cravings! This can be useful to people with hypoglycemia and for hyperactive children.
We like adding the Absolute Goji Powder™ and Absolute Acai Powder™ to our cereal in the morning. And we even sprinkle it on our dogs’ dinners every night. They really love it – really!!!. In fact once a week we put a little Liquid V Power™ and Naked Noni Juice™ on their food too! They eat better than we do!!
Aerobic exercise stimulates release of appetite suppressing hormone. Vigorous aerobic exercise suppresses appetite by triggering the release of the appetite suppressing hormone peptide YY and lowering levels of the appetite stimulating hormone ghrelin, suggested in a recent study results.
David J. Stensel and colleagues from Britain’s Loughborough University and Sheffield Hallam University enrolled 11 male university students for their study of the effect of exercise on appetite and the appetite-regulating hormones peptide YY and ghrelin. Each participant was required to take part in three eight-hour sessions: one in which they ran for 60 minutes on a treadmill, and then rested for seven hours; another in which they did 90 minutes of weight lifting, and then rested for six hours and 30 minutes; and a third session during which the participants did no exercise.
Results showed that ghrelin levels dropped and peptide YY levels increased during the aerobic exercise session on the treadmill. Whilst ghrelin levels dropped but peptide YY levels did not change significantly during the weight-lifting session (resistance exercise). The participants also filled out hunger questionnaires after each exercise session. Results of the questionnaires showed that both aerobic and resistance exercise suppressed hunger, but aerobic exercise produced a greater suppression of hunger. However, appetite suppression was only short-lived – lasting for approximately two hours, including the time spent exercising.
“The finding that hunger is suppressed during and immediately after vigorous treadmill running is consistent with previous studies indicating that strenuous aerobic exercise transiently suppresses appetite,” Dr Stensel said in a news release. “The findings suggest a similar, although slightly attenuated response, for weight lifting exercise.”
Broom DR, Batterham RL, King JA, Stensel DJ. The influence of resistance and aerobic exercise on hunger, circulating levels of acylated ghrelin and peptide YY in healthy males. Am J Physiol Regul Integr Comp Physiol. Published online November 5th 2008. doi: 10.1152/ajpregu.90706.2008
News release: Exercise Suppresses Appetite by Affecting Appetite Hormones. American Physiological Society. December 11th 2008.
The point here is that exercise gets the body going. Not everyone can exercise vigorously 60 minutes a day but we all can take a 30 minute walk and get outside for a little bit. This does wonders for our well being, let alone our waist lines.

There is a greens solution!
“The alarming fact is that foods (fruits, vegetables and grains), now being raised on millions of acres of land that no longer contains enough of certain minerals, are starving us – no matter how much we eat. No man of today can eat enough fruits and vegetables to supply his system with the minerals he requires for perfect health because his stomach isn’t big enough to hold them.”
“The truth is that our foods vary enormously in value, and some of them aren’t worth eating as food … Our physical well-being is more directly dependent upon the minerals we take into our system than upon calories or vitamins or upon the precise proportions of starch, protein or carbohydrates we consume.”
U.S. Senate Document No. 264 (1936).
An organically grown synergistic whole-food formulation, combining fruits, vegetables, sea vegetables, grains, grasses, herbs, and potent antioxidants. CAOH® Ultra Supreme Greens™ unique combination of ingredients will help to balance your body’s pH level, while adding a naturally balanced ratio of proteins, minerals, and vitamins. Everything your body needs for all of its cells to function properly.
Receiving the proper amount of vitamins and minerals is not as easy as it used to be. Plants absorb many different ingredients from the soil, yet farmers reintroduce only a few of these when replanting, resulting in the average diet being nutrient deficient. Ultra Supreme Greens™ helps counter this deficiency with each serving equal to the nutritional value of 2 lbs. of fresh vegetables – that’s 3 to 5 servings of vegetables .
Cell regeneration is vital to our bodies. It takes skin 30 days to regenerate and bodies take up to 120 days. Without the necessary vitamins, minerals, and nutrients our bodies fall into a degenerative state, also known as aging. Ultra Supreme Greens™ introduces the necessary amino acids, minerals, proteins, and vitamins to revitalize proper cell regeneration.
Sickness and disease occurs when the pH level of the cell and human body becomes acidic when the cell is normally alkaline. In an acidic environment disease producing levels are at their highest points. Ultra Supreme Greens™ will naturally alkaline your body to help combat against such disease and sickness, leaving you healthy and feeling young.
The Ultra Supreme Greens, taken in combination with our Liquid Power™, make an unbeatable nutrition team.
Not just another Mangosteen!
It couldn’t be easier to find Mangosteen juice these days. What sets us apart? For one thing, California Academy of Health is one of the only two sources of Certified Organic Mangosteen juice available on the market today in the United States. When you are considering buying Mangosteen, take a hard look to see if the juice you are considering is Certified Organic. Our juice is just that!
Our Mangosteen Elixir® is a wonderful blend of Mangosteen, Goji, Noni, and other juices that are dynamic and beneficial in their own right. In addition, we provide Absolute Mangosteen™, which is just 100% Organic Mangosteen. And what is even cooler is that Absolute Mangosteen™ is on sale right now for only $16.99 per bottle.

Question: I recently had a gout in my foot. What supplement should I take to overcome this. I had been taking Liquid Power for years and occasionally Ultra Supreme Green. What can I take for Vitamin D supplement ?
Answer: Gout is WAY easier to prevent than treat. Start back-up on the greens and LP, (add 1-2 Natural Calm per day. Too much magnesium can cause loose stool. If it happens drop it down to just 1 per day), avoid red meat, alcohol and saturated fat (cheese and butter). Drink lots of water.
Vitamin D comes in many forms. I like drops (Biotics – Vitamin D Forte) 3 drops a day is a good dose. (After this post we added Vitamin D. Check it out here).
Let me know how you do.
Marcus Ettinger DC, BSc
Response Back: Thank you very much for this information! It’s interesting that I’ve had a bad cold, gout, and some discomforts while I was not taking Liquid Power and Supreme Green products during the time. I ordered some more recently.
Thank you for your quick response and directing me to your blog. I do find your site to be the most informative I have ever come across and seems the best quality, organic products.
Just for fun, I mixed the Acai Max with the Aloe and grapeseed (TheraAloe) half and half and came up with a very nice taste. The Aloe by itself is definitely an acquired taste so I found that combination to be really quite awesome.
Thank you again for your information and customer service and I will continue to use and refer people to you!
