How to take FCLO... Did Grandma know best?

From old movies we can still pick up the essence of what it was like when the cod liver oil jar came out of the cupboard. Kids would scatter. We still have one of our 6 children that seems to go missing each morning.

Stories from the war years indicate that schools would ensure the children were well nourished by providing cod liver oil each day. This was often blended with orange juice to make it easier to take.

We did a quick taste testing experiment in our office and below is what we think are good product blending options to make it easier to take yourt FCLO each day. Here are our favorites.

Dr. Huber and the Impact of Glyphosate in the Food Chain

Latter-Day Luther Nails Troubling Thesis to GM Farm & Food Citadels

Copyright 2011 – by Steven McFadden

 

After trucking across the high plains for five hours, and casting my eyes over perhaps 100,000 acres or more of winter’s still deathly gray industrial farmland, I came face to face with the newly famous Dr. Don M. Huber in the cave-dark meeting room of the Black Horse Inn just outside the American Heartland village of Creighton, Nebraska.

On the morning of March 24, along with about 80 farmers and Extension agents, I listened as Huber discoursed with erudition and eloquence upon industrial farming practices that may be impacting nearly every morsel of food produced on the planet, and that subsequently may also be having staggeringly serious health consequences for plants, animals, and human beings.

Huber is emeritus soil scientist of Purdue University, and a retired U.S. Army Colonel who served as an intelligence analyst, for 41 years, active and reserves. In Nebraska, he stood ramrod straight for three hours with no notes and spoke with an astonishing depth and range of knowledge on crucial, controversial matters of soil science, genetic engineering, and the profound impact of the widely used herbicide glyphosate upon soil and plants, and ultimately upon the health of animals and human beings.

Paper by Huber and Haneklaus on Managing Nutrition to Control Plant Disease

Managing Nutrition to Control Plant Disease.

Introduction

Plant diseases are a major limitation to improved production efficiency and crop quality as they reduce nutrient availability, uptake, distribution, or utilization by the plant. Disease symptoms frequently reflect the altered nutritional status of the plant and it is frequently difficult to clearly distinguish between the biotic and abiotic factors involved.

Fake rice article and notes on D3 from Dr. Weber

Yes Americans are as dumb as They appear or they would not be taking FAKE vitamin D3 which flushes magnesium out ot their body causing diabetes among other things and they would stop puting gluten into their bodies which blocks vitamin D absorption (81% of the American population is gluten intolerant) and they would not have bought into the Cholesterol Con - I could fill volumes with how dumb Americans are but whats the point because the book would be out of date before it was published with all the new cons Americans are buying into on a daily basis.

GMO's, Dr Huber

+Pathologist retired Purdue University. i think he worked in and around Monsanto paid work.
+ devoting his time to blowing the whistle on GMO's and Round up
+ 1/2 life of round-up is not a couple wks like Monsanto first suggested but rather 22 years in the soil. the second 1/2 life is even longer
+The GMO seed chelates minerals and makes them unavailable to both the plant and the consumer of the plant
+ round-up also chelates the minerals... Between The seed and roundup 60% of the minerals are bound and unusable..some minerals are completely chelated
+ round-up alfalfa will be the final pc.. to control all seed. It is a perennial and pollenates with just about everything

Part 2, Vitamin D, To test or not to test.

Below came from posting on another blog. It was posted by someone who i consider one of the best natural teachers i have ever met. I thought many would appreciate her insights and approach to the question

Vitamin D testing...To test or not to test

Below is a thread from one of the yahoo groups i belong. i thought the tread is worth a posting on my blog.
it starts off with someone questioning testing blood for vitamin D levels;

"At the 2009 Wise Traditions Conference Dr. Louisa Williams stated that Vitamin D testing only tells you what is circulating in the blood NOT what is actually getting into the tissues where it makes a difference."

Green Pasture Products In the EU... Passed All EU Testing and Compliance by EU Authorities ... Congratulations Holomed

Holomed in the Netherlands completed work with the EU Authorities including stringent testing and authentication of ALL Blue Ice and X-Factor Products. EU Approval is much more stringent than the rest of the world. There was never any doubt our products would pass as we have completed the same tests here is the US for 10 years without issue but the expense to work with the EU authorities is much more complex and costly than working with the US authorities.

PCB's, Dioxin, PBDE's in the enviroment and mirrored in breast milk at much higher levels than any fish oil

Below is an article that i would like to share. A few important points that jump out are:

1. Breast milk has more PCB's than Prop 65 Allows in Fish oils. We have never seen high PCB's in our FCLO nor have i seen any reported PCB levels as high as in breask milk. I assume their are some reported cases but my intuition is it would have come from lake/river fish or fish caught near river outlets and coastal industrial centers.

Discussion:roles of Vitamin A, Hormone D, other hormones, steroids, sterols etc

The question about the roles of Vitamin A, Hormone D, other hormones and quinones comes up from time to time.

FCLO's role is high levels of fat-soluble nutrients including vitamins A, D, E, and K; quinones; enzymes; hormones; and fatty acids. The complex of these nutrients will be totally different in the butter oil versus the FCLO.

The Fatty Acid Complex is completely different as are the species collecting these nutrients. The hormone/steroid structure is directly related to the species and the fatty acid structure of the species’ diet.

Storing Fermented Cod liver oil

This is rehashing old info....

Fermented Cod Liver oil has not traditionally been in refrigerated. Only after the industrialization of the oil did cold storage become the norm.

If you refrigerate the FCLO it may cloud or solidify. This does not hurt the product itself but does change the texture.

I get a common Question, Raw Butter, Ghee, Butter Oil, Coconut Ghee

In My Opinion, I would never discount real raw 100% grass fed butter . Eat as much as you can. There is no need to heat the raw butter to make ghee. I think raw butter is truly one of our whole sacred foods. If you don't mind the flavor, raw cultured butter is even better.

EPA/DHA/Omega 3 This is not the real story, The Cambridge International Institute for Medical Science

I will attempt to scan the document quoted for more tid bits, here is the beginning of the Paper that I think is pointed to the topic. I receive many calls on EPA/DHA and i struggle with the question. The struggle is not about how much EPA/DHA the FCLO andf Skate have as they will have the same levels as any other CLO. Approx 15% of the oil will be EPA and 10% DHA for the FCLO. The Skate will be higher in DHA than FCLO.

Reposting old information on clo and ear wax

Dale Alexander (The King of Cod). discussed in one of his books ('How to End Dry Skin' i think is the name of the book) how ear wax production can be stimulated by taking clo. ' take 1 tablespoon of clo per day until your ear wax is flowing then stop or cut back'.

Great idea. Make your FCLO in to a cool treat

Take 1 cup Yogurt, 1 tsp FCLO ( or Blended FCLO/BO), and Fruit of your liking. Blend. Pour into ice cube trays and put sticks into each cube then Freeze.

You can mix stronger FCLO if the fruit selection has a stronger flavor.... Trial and error rule

Share this with others, Post on different blog sights. This is a great/easy way to take the FCLO.

Why Hydrogenated Oils Should be Avoided at All Costs submitted by Dr. Donald

(NaturalNews) If you're really concerned about getting healthy and staying that way, then you have to be very concerned about what you're putting into your body.
This means not only avoiding fast foods and other known junk foods, but it means that you have to be very aware of one of the worst of the more than 6000 chemicals that are added to foods today.

Skepticism Mounts on Need for Vitamin D Supplementation

Great article... their is sooo much more to FCLO than vitamin D. Even the variety of forms of vitamin D is important.... keep in mind the below discussion of vitamin d supplementation is specifically discussing vitamin D3. real FCLO has some D3 but most of the measured D is D2.

Observations from Dr. Kelling, anabolic/catabolic

Dr. Kelling shared a few points on the topic of anabolic and catabolic that I think are worth your consideration.
Each person is one type or another, this is why some do well being treated one way and others have to be treated totally opposite.

Observations by Dr. Donald

Dr. Donald contacted me as he has had a few patients not test strong for FCLO. I have blogged previous that not everyone is the same and some do better on skate rather than FCLO. I do not know why this is true but i have heard this from more than one doctor. Dr. Louisa Williams (Author of Radical Medicine) commented during her WAPF Conference presentation that many of her patients test stronger with Skate vs FCLO.

Vitamin D2 is equally as effective as vitamin D3 in maintaining 25-hydroxyvitamin D status

just thought i would stir the pot further on the subject of vitamin d and how little we know..

ScienceDaily (Jan. 7, 2008) — Researchers from Boston University School of Medicine (BUSM) have found that vitamin D2 is equally as effective as vitamin D3 in maintaining 25-hydroxyvitamin D status.

Vitamin D and many metabolites not just D3

here is a specific note from research paper below, i am highlighting as i think this concept will be important in future discussions on the vitamin D topic as we learn that todays knowledge is not the same as tomorrow's knowledge... vitamin D2 is just starting to be studied ect.....

Vitamin D and transfats, plus other notes of interest

I would like to share with your blog group some new information on the topic of Trans fats and enzyme P450 Cytochrome.

This Enzyme system is messed up by the trans fats in our diet. Sally Fallon shared with me that Dr. Mary Enig thesis focus was on this topic.
1. One of the key functions of this enzyme system is metabolism of Vitamin D in our bodies. Without this system functioning properly the vitamin D does not get to where it needs to go

Lessons on how to take FCLO from our family

Our family includes 6 children from the age of 2 to 18. My oldest 3 girls take the Mediterranean and chase with water. They will take other flavors, as it is a requirement in our house, but the Mediterranean is the one they grumble the least.

The two year old boy (Basil) is the picky one. He is too young to discipline so we either hide the FCLO and Butter Oil in food or when we change his diaper we lube his buns with fclo/bo.

Real Cod Liver Oil and Vitamin D

Fact: Real Cod Liver oil is the most potent source of naturally occuring D2 in addition to the D3 in clo. Do we really think we know the whole story?


One more reason why real whole foods are important.

Refrigerate or not to refrigerate, that is the question

Many call on this topic.

Fermented clo products: The oil is very stable. In my opinion many can store OPENED jars either way. If you use the fclo regularly (within a few months) you can opt to leave in a cupboard after opening.

We do not overly process the oils so some lots tend to become thicker as the storage temps get colder. I have seen some really cold refrigerators make a fclo almost Gel.

testing

Previous blogs have addressed the question, but i guess they are old posts and no longer active.

Yes, We test every batch of product. This is not only a good practive but it is mandated by law. Each Batch is tested several times and by several labs. Our batchs are very small compared to all other industrialized clo's.

How much Fclo to consume? Here is Dr. Rosann Volmerts observations

Hi Dave,

As far as dosing goes, I have been asking patients to take 3ml or 3 capsules of fclo along with 2.5ml or 3 capsules of bo. What I have found is that for people in good health this works pretty well to raise vit D levels from the 10's-20's up to 40's-80's.

Update on Cod Liver Oil Manufacturing, Returning to Traditional Production Techniques for the Quintessential Sacred Food

SPRING 2009 Wise Traditions 26 When I began to import cod liver oil, in order to sell it along with the high-vitamin butter oil I was manufacturing, I felt it imperative to go to Iceland and Norway to visit the various cod liver oil factories there. At that time, most cod liver oil in America was imported from Scandinavia, with a small amount coming from China. What I learned is described in an article published in the Fall, 2005 issue of Wise Traditions and posted at westonaprice.org: "Update on Cod Liver Oil Manufacture Returning to Traditional Production Techniques for the Quintessential Sacred Food By David Wetzel"

Different ways to take 'Real' CLO and Butteroil

Here is a collection both old and new ways to take 'Real' clo and bo. If you have some of your family's dosing success stories to share with the community please forward using the contact link on this web page and i will consider adding to the list.

1. Melt the butter oil in 1-2 ounces of warm water and mix with fermented clo and maybe a tea or lemon juice. down the hatch

2. take on a spoon with a little honey or maple syrup.

3. melt on oatmeal or similar

4. take straight up and enjoy the wake up energy the fermented clo provides to your senses
