Biofilm Phase-2 Advanced is our August special!

Biofilm is a vegetarian capsule containing Bismuth Subnitrate, Alpha Lipoic Acid and Black Cumin (seed). This formulation is an exclusive from Dr. Paul Anderson. Biofilm is designed to disrupt advanced biofilms (Phase 2) and support the immune system, allowing for the body to redirect focus where needed.

Dr. Paul Anderson is well-known in the naturopathic community, specializing in complex clinical medicine, intravenous and injection medicine, oncology and geonomics.

Bismuth Subnitrate is a compound that is generally used to help eliminate bacteria that can cause stomach discomfort.

Alpha Lipoic Acid is a fatty acid made by your body. It plays a key role in metabolism and energy production and functions as an antioxidant. It is also key in balancing temporary inflammation and can help the immune system in both direct and indirect ways.

Black Cumin (seed) has many benefits, including aiding in healthy cholesterol metabolism, balancing a body’s natural inflammation responses in the body and playing a role in optimal blood pressure. Not to be confused with cumin (brown), black cumin is also called black seed, caraway or fennel flower. It’s is commonly sound in SW Asia and parts of the Mediterranean/Africa. Used for centuries in herbal medicine for inflammation reduction, Priority One is proud to feature this incredible ingredient in Biofilm.

Priority One guarantees that all our botanicals are radiation-free and obtained through only the most reputable of sources.

As a special offer to our loyal customers, we are offering 20% off of Biofilm in the month of August. Please use code “Biofilm20” to receive this offer on your website or phone order.

Dr. Paul S. Anderson is on the leading forefront of biofilm research and education.  

We are excited to announce that we have received exclusive access to Dr. Paul Anderson’s webinar on BioFilms, worth $59.00 – and are offering it to you for FREE!

February Special – Hormone Clear is 20% off

Hormone Clear is a unique combination of amino acids, antioxidants, and nutrients that support the liver’s detoxification pathways of endocrine disrupting chemicals, EDCs, and the body’s own production of hormones. This is an exclusive product formulated by Dr. Marianne Marchese designed to be used for both men and women’s health conditions as well as detoxification and cleansing plans. Dr. Marianne Marchese is a leader in both environmental medicine and women’s health.

Dr. Marchese formulated Hormone Clear by choosing ingredients that assist the liver in metabolizing the body’s own production of hormones and EDCs.  The ingredients in Hormone Clear include: Vitamin B-12 (as methylcobalamin), Folate (as (6S)-5-methyltetrahydrofolic acid), Calcium (as calcium d-glucarate), BioResponse DIM, Alpha Lipoic Acid, and N-Acetyl L-Cysteine.

Methylcobalamin and methyltetrahydrofolic acid both provide co-factor and methylation support for phase one and phase two liver metabolism of hormones and EDCs.  Calcium d-glucarate (CDG) and Diindolylmethane (DIM) support multiple detoxification pathways and provide hormonal support. Both DIM and CDG support testosterone and estrogen balance and assist with metabolism of endocrine disrupting compounds. Alpha lipoic acid (ALA) and N-acetyl cysteine (NAC) are powerful antioxidants that also support glutathione production in the body. These directly aid in the metabolism of chemicals that disrupt men’s and women’s hormonal health.

Both patients and practitioners are constantly seeking ways to restore balance and aid the body’s natural ability to clear hormones. Hormone Clear is designed for people interested in optimizing their hormonal system or for those who have known exposure to EDCs. It can be used as a stand-alone product or in conjunction with her other formulas from Priority One, Cofactors Support and Hepa Cleanse. This product is contraindicated in pregnancy and with lactation.

As a special offer to our loyal customers, we are offering 20% off of Hormone Clear in the month of February. Please use code “CLEAR20” to receive this offer on your website or phone order!

Valid for up to 12 bottles, this offer cannot be combined with other offers (such as a percentage off for a show special) and is not available for distributors. It can be combined with our premium specials.

New Kiwi Kleanse 20% OFF

Priority One is excited to present our newest chewable formula, Kiwi Kleanse!

Kiwi Kleanse is a delicious natural kiwifruit-flavored chewable tablet containing Actazin & marshmallow root.

This new exclusive formula is designed to provide easy-to-administer relief for occasional constipation including in children and pregnant women.  The active ingredient Actazin is a non-GMO, cold-pressed kiwifruit powder sourced from New Zealand.  It contains a unique combination of bioactive nutrients that effectively and gently support the digestive and laxation processes. 

These active components are clinically shown to increase bowel movements in healthy individuals.  Additionally, Actazin contains polyphenols, which are micronutrients known for their wide range of health benefits, including the potential to reduce temporary mucusal inflammation caused by poor digestion. The kiwi enzyme, actanidin, is a proteolytic enzyme that breaks down proteins, which may help to reduce bloating and abdominal discomfort. 

Kiwi Kleanse includes prebiotic properties, which support the growth of beneficial gut bacteria.  These bacteria, when allowed to multiply, produce essential short chain fatty acids that provide metabolic fuel for the colon.

Research on the levels of vitamin A and C in the kiwi fiber have been shown to have an anti-inflammatory effect, which may contribute to the gut’s motility & ability to keep things moving. Kiwi fiber is a source of both soluble and insoluble fiber with the ability to increase water retention, which provides for softer and bulkier stools. 

The ingredient of marshmallow root is noted for it’s ability to produce natural mucilage to support and soothe the digestive tract. 

As a special offer to our loyal customers, we are offering 20% off of Kiwi Kleanse in the month of November. Please use code “kiwi20” to receive this offer on your website or phone order!

August Product Spotlight- Kinder Well

Designed by a naturopathic physician, Kinder Well is a combination of vitamins, minerals, and herbs formulated to help fortify and support healthy immune function.

It supplies specific ingredients to support the body’s natural production of white blood cells, including T-cells and neutrophils along with immune-supportive anthocyanins, flavonoids and polyphenols.

The immune system begins to develop from the moment we are born gradually maturing throughout infancy into adulthood. Immune antibodies (IgG) transfer from mother to baby during pregnancy and through breast milk, providing critical early protection against infectious diseases. As this fades away children become more vulnerable to certain infections as the innate and adaptive immunities mature. Children may still acquire bacterial, parasitic and viral infections that will be regulated and fought off with immune responses. Thus creating immunological memory and providing protection with increased immune responses.

Take advantage of this month’s special on Kinder Well by entering discount code “kinderwell20” at checkout for 20% off.  Offer is valid on up to 12 bottles..

Guest Blog: Our Lymphatic System

Our Lymphatic System

Our Lymphatic SystemDr. Melina Roberts

The lymphatic system is our secondary circulatory system.  It plays an important role in supporting our immune system and treating inflammation in the body.  The lymphatic system circulates throughout the entire body.  The lymphatic system is made up of lymphatic fluid, lymphatic vessels, lymphatic nodes, the spleen, the thymus, tonsils and Peyer’s patches in the gut.  The lymphatic system drains and cleans up all the tissues in our body.

Lymph nodes are biological filtering units and are distributed throughout the body.  Lymph nodes produce white blood cells called lymphocytes that defend the body against microorganisms and other harmful pathogens or toxins in the lymphatic fluid before it returns to the blood stream.

The obvious sign that the lymphatic system is congested or not flowing effectively is edema or swelling, but there is often more subtle signs such as lowered immune function, chronic infection, chronic inflammation and reduced detoxification capacity.  Reduced immune reactivity is another sign of lymphatic congestion.  The immune system can become less reactive to microorganisms or toxins if the body is in acidosis, therefore when a person says that they never get sick, it is not necessarily a good sign.

Promoting lymphatic drainage is significant in addressing inflammation. The lymphatic system removes and filters inflammatory mediators.

The lymphatic system can become congested from food intolerances, immune challenges, heavy metals, environmental toxins, surgery, scars or structural imbalances.

Food intolerances can lead to the ineffective breakdown of foods where certain proteins get caught in the lymphatic fluid.  Immune challenges such as viruses, bacteria, fungi or parasites whereby the lymphatic system is working to removing and eliminate these pathogens from circulation can lead to congestion of the lymphatic system.  Heavy metals and environmental toxins will congest the lymphatic system as they overload the detoxification pathways and this leads to chronic inflammation. Scars or surgery or structural imbalances can lead to physical barriers in effective drainage of the lymphatic system.

When trying to improve lymphatic circulation, it important to also understand flow pathways of this closed internal system.  We have a superficial lymphatic system that drains our head, neck, skin and breast tissue.  Then we have a deep lymphatic system that drains all of our deep vital organs.  The superficial lymphatic system drains into the deep lymphatic system, the fluid then filters through the liver and empties out the colon.

Most typical lymphatic massages only focus on the superficial lymphatic system and without properly stimulating the deep lymphatic system, there cannot be proper drainage of the superficial lymphatic system into the deep lymphatic system.  Also if the liver is congested or the colon is not moving effectively, then can back up the system and cause congestion of the lymphatic system.

In order to support proper lymphatic drainage, the deep lymphatic system needs to be stimulated, the liver to be supported and the bowels need to be moving effectively.

Biofilms role in today’s health.

What is a BioFilm?

Biofilms are little communities of organisms in your body that join forces to avoid elimination. The protective coating they form is officially called a polymer matrix, which is like a “force field” or barrier that keeps drugs like antibiotics, antivirals, antifungals or any other antimicrobial from being effective in removing them. They are a huge concern in the medical community at the moment, however, many patients and physicians don’t even know about them. 

Biofilms are capable of adapting to many environments and thus can be found in all parts of the body. These areas include teeth, sinuses, tonsils, eustachian tubes of the middle ear and the intestines. Biofilms in the intestines can lead to chronic digestive and allergic responses often seen in difficult cases.

Immune Imbalance

The immune system is responsible for attacking, controlling and eliminating biofilms. In healthy individuals, this happens regularly, however, in susceptible individuals, biofilms can take hold and begin to wreak havoc on the whole body, specifically the immune system.

T-Cells

By launching an attack on the biofilms via immune cells (macrophages, natural killer cells, cytotoxic T cells and T lymphocytes) the body also creates a significant amount of inflammation. What happens then is the immune system shifts to what we call a TH2 dominant state with the TH1 cells in a lowered state. By shifting to TH2 dominance, the body is then unable to launch a full TH1 attack and eliminate the biofilm. It is most likely constantly battling the biofilm, but simply doesn’t have enough strength to eliminate it.

A TH2 dominant state is very common in many conditions. The TH2 dominant state is what we find in many people with traditional allergies. If you have an overactive TH2 dominant system, you will tend to have food allergies and sensitivities or airborne allergies and an increase in histamine release. This may even be confused with histamine intolerance. Some things that may push someone towards TH2 dominance include genetic predisposition, toxic substances and heavy metal exposure.

Biofilms and the Gut

One of the reasons you may have biofilms in the first place is due to early exposure to antibiotics. There are actually good biofilms that can be destroyed by antibiotics. These good biofilms and healthy gut flora provide a natural type of defense to foreign invaders.   Without the good biofilms as a defense mechanism, bad biofilms can proliferate and destroy the gut lining and increase permeability, a term commonly coined as “leaky gut”. With leaky gut, the intestinal barrier is compromised and allows substances to move into the bloodstream. By allowing different substances into the bloodstream, inflammation begins and things such as food allergies and sensitivities eventually alter the health of the immune system. The leaky gut will lead us to a TH2 dominant state as I mentioned above. Leaky gut also can slow down digestion, decrease toxin clearance and initiate proinflammatory chemicals.

Clinical Research

Research in gut health and immune system responses to permeable gut linings are revealing significantly new understandings into how these natural defenses work. This new research also helps us learn how to support the body’s ability to maintain a balanced and healthy gut flora.  

Dr. Paul S. Anderson is on the leading forefront of biofilm research and education.

Cherries and summer go hand and hand…

Hello everyone!

Strawberries ripening on the vine.

Summer has finally arrived and many of us have brushed off the moss (at least for us, Pacific North Westerners) strawberries are ripening and the cherry trees are teaming with growing cherries.

Cherries ripening on a branch.

 

I love cherries I try every year to beat the birds to our trees and make at least one cherry pie for my husband, but the race is on again. I check every morning to see if they are ready.  (I will include my cherry pie recipe at the end of this post for those who’d like to try it)!

Cherries and summer go hand and hand, did you know that cherries naturally reduce levels of uric acid in the body?1,2

Uric acid is a naturally occurring acid in the body but when it is present in high-levels it can contribute to the painful temporary deposits on joint surfaces.

These deposits can be brought about by a variety of factors, one of which is an abrupt temporary rise in serum uric acid levels. This in turn can be secondary to several environmental issues that are part of our summer fun; travel, especially air travel, hiking or other outdoor adventures, BBQ’s and alcohol can all lead to dehydration and concentration of uric acid.  One episode and your summer fun can all but be ruined.  So here are some summer tips for you:

First hydrate, hydrate, hydrate! As I am writing this I am sitting in an airport lounge waiting for yet another flight (road warriors hear me now) I woke up at 4 am for my first flight and promptly forwent my usual first thing first coffee before functioning, for WATER, yes water should always be what I start with but that’s another story for another day.

After security sparkling water and a coffee finally, 60 minute plane ride = 20 ounces of more water.  With breakfast water, and now almost boarding for my next leg and a 20 ounce organic herbal tea!

Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate

So what am I saying? Drink Your Water! Not only does it dilute the temporary uric acid spikes but it makes your skin look so much better! Believe me you don’t want to be that flyer that ages ten years during your flight.

Second, watch that alcohol, it doesn’t mean you can’t imbibe but do so wisely, alternate between drinks with water, apply the social drinking rule of no more than one drink an hour.

Red Wine

Did you know that the type of alcohol you choose also makes a difference? Beer is the biggest culprit, with spirits coming in better, and as always my favorite wine is the best choice for keeping your healthy uric acid levels within the normal range.

Sweet fresh cherries.

 

Finally, eating fresh fruits and vegetables, low inflammation foods, and of course healthy doses of cherries!

 

 

If you would like an alternative for when cherries are not in season check out our new UA Clear.

UA Clear has been formulated by Dr. John Hahn, it boasts VitaCherry® a standardized extract of sour cherry containing powerful anthocyanins, which give cherries their distinctive red color.

I hope you enjoy the following Baumgart Summer Cherry Pie
