The Story of ADP

The Story of ADP-Emulsified Oil of Oregano (Sustained Release)

Science is making rapid progress in unlocking Nature’s basic secrets, especially in the area of plants and food-stuffs, which supply more than just nutrients. One promising field is the variety of spices that have been used for centuries to add zest to a wide range of foods. Interestingly, long before the advent of refrigeration it was recognized that herbs and culinary spices could slow food spoilage–natural antimicrobial principles were obviously at work.

Food scientists have become more interested in essential oils and aromatic plants. Recent studies have focused on the effects of spices and associated oils on food-borne organisms in the context of food safety and spoilage. Attempts have been made to identify the active components of essential oils from spices, among them the oil of oregano. Analysis revealed two phenolic compounds, thymol and carvacrol, as primary constituents of oregano extracts, and their antioxidant properties were reported.

Biotics Research Corporation is widely recognized for its emulsified fat-soluble nutrients and other lipids, microemulsified with the practical objective of increased absorption and bioavailability. This technology has now been applied to the oil of oregano. By emulsifying oregano extracts, the effective surface area of the oil is dramatically increased. An additional step was to apply a sustained release mechanism to A.D.P.®, assuring a slow release throughout the digestive tract. The combined effect of emulsification and sustained release is to optimize intestinal exposure to the essential oil.

We use ADP for parasitic, fungal and bacterial infections. It must be followed up with Bio Doph 7 a pre and probiotic.


Brittany Maynard’s Journey and Other Thoughts

Brittany did end her life on November 1st as she felt her health was rapidly declining and she could lose her autonomy about choosing how her physical life would end. It is heart wrenching to think what her and her family have been through during her illness. There were and I’m sure will be some amazing life lessons learned through it all, though.

One reason I talked about Brittany was because I was curious about the cause of her illness. I will explore some more thoughts on that soon. One thing that I heard about recently that shocked me was about a parasite that racoons can transmit. I’ve had many many encounters with coons as they live in the trees in our yard. Our puppy has changed their habits some but they are still here. Mummy Funny Ear (She has one ear that is not quite as erect as the other and has brought her babies to show me, hence the name.) lives up the big cedar right in the middle of our yard and is a sweet shy little lady. I have had encounters in the past with ‘chicken eaters’…yes they stole our chickens but again our fault, they were just trying to survive. So I actually like the little critters and enjoy their antics but knowing what I know now, I don’t encourage them. Like I said, I’ll talk more about this parasite this week but just be aware that this can be deadly although it is rare. So if there are coon feces (they use specially designated latrines) in your area, make sure you don’t touch them or let your children or pets get into them. These parasites can cause terrible devastation to the brain. They don’t seem to impact the coons but other animals and humans can fall victim. It is RARE but certainly something to be aware of. I’m not saying that this is what happened to Brittany at all but it is an example of a parasite causing brain deterioration.

I did have some people comment on my blog with thoughts like what about EMFs etc. All a possibility as a cause, but can’t be sure. More later…
