Dr. Jacob Discusses The Benefits Of DMSO On CBS's 60 Minutes

Dr. Stanley W. Jacob, M.D., is a professor of surgery at Oregon Health Sciences University in Portland, Oregon. He is also an advocate of the natural painkiller DMSO. A few years ago, Dr. Jacob was interviewed on CBS's 60 Minutes. The theme of the interview was DMSO. In the interview, Dr. Jacob touted the benefits of DMSO as a natural painkiller.

This interview is significant. Why? because for over the past 25 years Life Choice's CEO, Dr. Eldon Dahl (ND) has been making the same comments. In fact, Dr. Dahl was so impressed with DMSO that he pioneered the legal reintroduction of DMSO into the North American market.

Today, his company Life Choice, has the only legal DMSO in North America. It is the only nutraceutical company in North America whose DMSO was clinically tested, government approved and licensed.

 
What is even more significant, is that Life Choice's DMSO is just part of the total pain management program offered by the company. Other natural supplements that fit in their program include: SAMe; DLPA; DMSO; Sweet Relief Cream and Opti Cal/Mag Complex with K2.

All of these natural supplements are a natural alternative to prescription pain killers. They are all natural alternatives to allopathic medicines.

Is Canada's Natural Health Product Industry Approaching Its Darkest Hour?

In the May/June/July 2013, edition of VISTA  Magazine (Issue #89), Dr. Eldon Dahl (ND), owner and founder of Life Choice, who was recently named Canadian Natural Health Product Industry Leader For 2013, as well as a recent inductee into the prestigious worldwide Whose Who Organisation for his excellence in health care, talks about the revolutionary change that is occurring in today's Canadian natural health industry.

His commentary which is titled " Is The Natural Health Industry Approaching Its Darkest Hour? " is a well written, thought provoking article. It is a must read for all of those who participate or who are involved in Canada's natural health industry.

With over 25 years experience in the natural health field, both as a naturopath, and as the CEO of Canada's #1 top quality producing nutraceutical company, Dr. Dahl's comments should be a 'wake up call' to those who wish to preserve the industry's integrity.

When asked to comment on why he wrote the article, Dr. Dahl, replied, "I wrote the article, because I love this industry and I love helping people."

In the same publication, Life Choice continues to show why it is #1 in Canada when it comes to producing the highest quality nutraceutical formulations. It's DMSO is the only licensed and legal DMSO in North America. Its Thyroid Support supplement contains only the highest quality raw materials.

Nutraceuticals: Are Contaminated Health Food Products From China Entering Our Food System On A Regular Basis?

For over 25 years Life Choice has been supplying customers with high quality natural supplements. Today, all the company's professional, therapeutic medicines are clinically tested and government approved. All of their products are legal and licensed.

To retain this high level of quality and purity, Life Choice management makes a conscious and determined effort to work with suppliers who only provide superior raw materials. In the end, the company refuses to purchase its raw materials from China, instead choosing suppliers from Japan, U.S.A., the E.U. and South America
 

According to Life Choice, CEO, Dr. Eldon Dahl, ND, "until we have transparency [from China], we will not compromise quality for the sake of saving money with inferior raw materials."  He continued, "when you buy the best [raw materials], only then can you expect the best results [final product]."

Why is this conversation important? Well, it is important for a variety of reasons. First, many natural health manufacturers are putting natural health products on the market that are not government approved, clinically tested, or licensed. Second, many health manufacturers are using inferior raw materials from China in their production process, resulting in the final product having no therapeutic or medicinal value.

 For Life Choice, the emphasis has always been on product quality and the therapeutic health benefits that the consumer derives from their products.
 
For Life Choice CEO, Dr. Eldon Dahl ND, the emphasis has always been on research, knowledge and education. A good example of this is when Dr. Oz  recently discussed the health benefits of HGH on his own t.v. show. Interestingly, this discussion took place long after Life Choice introduced its own natural supplement, Homeopathic HGH+  into the marketplace.

Fight Osteoporosis With A Natural Supplement That Helps Keep Your Bones Healthy And Strong


Life Choice's Opti-Calgmag Complex with Vitamin K2 is a natural supplement that can help you increase your magnesium intake, and at the same time, increase your bone mineral density (BMD).
 
Why is that important? Well, according to an article that recently appeared in Prevent Disease Magazine titled " Magnesium Not Calcium Is The Key To Healthy Bones (Prevent Disease Magazine, May 8, 2013, Marco Torres )the author suggest that it is the "dietary intake of magnesium, not necessarily calcium, that may be the key to developing and maintaining healthy bones."

In the article, the author discusses the health hazards of magnesium deficineces in adults. Here the author cites "Osteoporotic fractures [as] a significant health problem in aging adults." As the author explains ... "for every 100 milligram per day increase in magnesium, there is an approximate 2 percent increase in higher bone mineral density (BMD)... given the high prevalence of low BMD and fractures,[any] small improvement in BMD may have a large public health impact.

When asked to comment on this article, Life Choice, CEO, Dr. Eldon Dahl, ND replied, "Our Opti-Calgmag Complex with Vitamin K2 is a high quality professional, therapeutic medicine which is specifically formulated to help increase bone mineral density.

He continued, "this product, like all of our Life Choice products, including that of our Homeopathic HGH+ , in which HGH was just recently discussed on the Dr. Oz show,  have received great endorsements from satisfied customers."

Nutraceutical Company Offers A Natural Alternative To Life Threatening Pain Killers

Recently,  CTV News (Canada) aired a segment where U.S. doctors admitted that pain medication is killing their patients unnecessarily due to over dosing. The report also shows the frustration MD’s are facing from recognizing the side effects from the drugs they prescribe.

 
When asked to comment on this segment, Life Choice CEO Dr. Eldon Dahl (ND), owner and founder of the company stated: "The public needs to know that they are not bound to this type of endless drug use when there are alternatives with natural professional therapeutic medicines.
He continued, "At Life Choice we offer products such as: SAMe; DLPA; DMSO; Sweet Relief Cream and Opti Cal/Mag Complex with K2, that get great and amazing pain management results without any side effects or dependency. All of these products are tested, licensed and regulated. They are a perfect alternative to allopathic medicines.
 
 
Dr. Dahl concluded his statement by referring to Life Choice's most recently licensed and approved natural pain killer DMSO. According to Dahl, "not only is our DMSO the only government approved, licensed and legal DMSO in North America, but the quality and standard of that particular product, is itself, a true representation of all the pain management products that our company manufactures."

Is The Natural Health Industry Approaching Its Darkest Hour?

In my opinion, we are on the precipice of a major paradigm shift that will reshape the natural health industry forever. Will the industry survive? Absolutely--and it will adapt and thrive, but it will be a far cry from the days of its inception. The natural roots of our inception grew a healthy tree. However, today‘s health industry has grafted in branches feeding from the essence of the roots, but the fruit produced doesn’t necessarily resemble the original. Its properties are questionable in regards to raw material purity, potency and therapeutic value. Those demarcations that used to be so easy to see are being blurred in the name of regulatory compliance

Now, under the stewardship of the CHFA, all supplements are now under Natural Health Products Directorate (NHPD) regulations. To set the record straight so that I am not perceived as opposed to licensing, our entire product line is licensed. Still, no matter what spin is applied, Natural Product Numbers (NPNs) are in a drug subclass. Through a sleight of hand, they are referred to as “natural health products.” This placement should have been fought like hell, but here we are. Food-based supplements don’t require warnings and adverse reactions; they only do if one considers mixing them with prescription medicine. Now, supplement warnings closely resemble those of pharmaceutical drugs. I ask you: who benefits by drug-style warnings? Health Canada is happy, and so is the pharmaceutical industry, and when they smile, I get worried. This new “middle-ground” category raises a whole new set of industry security concerns.

With the new regulations in full swing, how will creativity flourish without patent protection like what is given to the pharmaceutical industry? I can use my experience of Kava Kava as an example. Space is limited to fully explain Kava’s history and downfall from grace. After 10 years of Kava being banned from the Canadian market, I worked with a licensing company with the goal of bringing it back. After 3 1/2 years of submitting clinical evidence, addressing numerous IRN rejections, and spending tens of thousands of dollars, we brought Kava back with a license to be a calmative and a sleep aid. Unlicensed Kava is still classified by Health Canada as high risk, and if a consumer were to become sick using a non-licensed product, that one strike may be enough to permanently remove Kava--licensed or not--from ever being sold again.

Speaking from the heart and from my love of the health industry, we must as an industry support the intellectual efforts of the suppliers. Through their efforts, new products enter the marketplace, and without support or incentive, creativity will cease because there is no reward for their efforts. In the pharmaceutical world, a patent is granted to allow for the recovery of investment. However, NPN’s cannot rely on recovery being granted, but instead must rely on the industry to recognize their contribution and support their efforts until another supplier is granted a similar license.

Another troubling fact is that Canada has the Freedom of Information Act. To obtain an NPN, a supplier spends years compiling research and invests tens of thousands of dollars, plus hundreds of hours. However, a competitor can apply and request that information to be released with little or no effort. Thus far we have had this happen many times. I view this as theft, just like a copyright infringement. Others may see it as free enterprise and an easy opportunity. Maybe I am old school, but it just doesn’t feel right.

With these dangers, will our natural industry remain fruitful in years to come? I guess that depends on our gardening skills and how we prune the tree.

Life Choice: Kava Kava And The Need For Product Safety

Life Choice: Kava Kava And The Need For Product Safety: KAVA KAVA AND THE NEED FOR PRODUCT SAFETY Kava Kava has an interesting history. It has been safely consumed ceremonially in the South ...

Kava Kava And The Need For Product Safety


KAVA KAVA AND THE NEED FOR PRODUCT SAFETY

Kava Kava has an interesting history. It has been safely consumed ceremonially in the South Pacific and other parts of the world. The earliest European knowledge of Kava dates back to the late 1700s, with the journeys of Captain Cook.

Today, usage of Kava beverages in tropical climates is similar to the use of alcholic beverages in the West. However, the plant from which the beverage is made was found to have useful properties for anxiety, hyperactivity, stress and restlessness.

In 2001, the FDA investigated alleged Kava Kava related liver toxicity; the following year, Health Canada, among others, banned preparations containing kava. Interestingly, these issues only became known when it became a consumer product. Here's why:

1. The plant cultivar - Traditionally used cultivars are expensive to import; therefore suppliers were using cultivars that had no history of safe use.

2. The part of the plant - Traditionally the rhizome was used, with no hepatotoxic side effects; suppliers were using aerial parts as well.

3. The age of the plant - The kava should be 5 years old before harvesting; suppliers were using very young plants.

Unlicensed Kava is still classified by Health Canada as high risk, and selling unlicensed kava possesses several liability risks for both suppliers and retailers, as well as the safety risk for consumers. For three years, Life Choice attempted to legally bring their Kava Kava back onto the market. In March 2012, Life Choice Kava became the first Kava to receive a Natural Product Number - and therefore, a green light from Health Canada. Life Choice is now pioneering the legal reintroduction of Kava supplements into the North American market.
 
Life Choice Kava uses the proper plant parts of the highest quality to ensure an effective, safe product. Below is just one example of the positive feedback we have received about this great product:

"Life Choice's Kava Kava in capsule form could replace all stress/sleep aids on the market. The effects I experienced were profound, but smooth and subtle at the same time. I felt my body release tension and relax as my heart melted into my chest and just opened up. When used prior to sleeping, I experienced a deeper sleep and my dreams were vibrant and clear. When used in a social setting, I was much more approachable and conversational, passing off love and positive energy to everyone. So happy to have this product available again in Canada and to have Life Choice, one of my favourite brands, producing it.Keep it coming!"

-Health and Body Care Specialist, Jennifer S. from Calgary, AB

With an issue as prevalent as anxiety, it is critical that the product be both safe and effective. Life Choice has done due diligence to make sure that these criteria are met. We are proud of this accomplishment, and hope that it is the first of many in the years to come.
