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.


Essential Tips for Following a Healthy Eating Regimen While on Vacation

Sticking to a healthy eating regimen doesn’t have to be a chore while on vacation. You’ve worked so hard to shed those pesky pounds, and the last thing you want to do is gain them back while traveling. Implementing a healthy eating plan and fitting in some exercise will keep your weight loss goals in check.


You’ll find an assortment of delicacies and temptations surrounding you throughout your trip, starting with the airport terminal. fruits and vegScents of popcorn, hot dogs, french fries and burgers will be within reach, but this isn’t the way you want to begin your trip. Walk around until you find something healthy and nutritious. Not only are you getting exercise, but you can weigh your options accordingly. Eating a full meal prior to your departure will help to fight off the urge to indulge in these temptations. Also, make sure to bring an assortment of healthy snacks with you for when you do get a little bit hungry. Items such as dried fruits, vegetables, and nuts are a great choice.

Plan Ahead

Most travelers rely on convenience foods and restaurants when going on vacation, but you can still follow a healthy diet with a little research and planning. If you intend to stay at a hotel or bed-and-breakfast, scope out a place ahead of time to see which one offers the most nutritious options. Free breakfast buffets can save the average traveler money, but you won’t benefit from the meal if all they offer is coffee, pastries and bagels. A breakfast that includes lean protein, fruits and whole-grains can leave you feeling full and satisfied longer. You can also book a room with a microwave, refrigerator and kitchenette, so you can keep healthy options in your room. You may find the goody bar to be tempting, but it won’t hold much nutritional value in the options that it offers. Often times it is difficult to find the hotel and restaurants that can accommodate to your healthy needs. I have found that a little research goes a long way in this regard. On my most recent vacation, I found a great site that listed reviews for Las Vegas hotels regarding not only their amenities and services, but also the restaurants in the surrounding area. This made it extremely easy to remain healthy both within and outside of the hotel on my vacation!

Restaurants and Eateries

Restaurants are an important part of vacationing, so you will need to know how to dine wisely. The Internet and cell-phone applications are a great resource when it comes to choosing where you want to eat. You can look up the nutritional information ahead of time such as calories, fat and sodium to ensure that you’re staying within reason. A restaurant that focuses on fresh ingredients will be your best option, and you’ll have an assortment of items to select from that includes fish, salads and vegetables. Also, don’t be afraid to ask for special dietary requests for your meal preparation. You can save calories by asking for your salad dressing to be placed on the side or by having your chicken grilled instead of fried.

Make Time for Something Special

Moderation is the key to any healthy eating plan, so you want to remember to indulge in a little decadence too. Going for ice cream can be a fun way to cap off an afternoon of adventure. If you’ve just finished rock climbing or golfing 18 holes, you’ve burned off calories and can afford a small sweet treat. Choose your options carefully before making your final decision. Instead of having a two-scoop sundae with hot fudge and whipped cream, you can select to have one scoop plain.

Don’t let food guilt get in the way of your good time. Planning your meals ahead and staying active will ensure a healthy and fun getaway!

This blog entry was submitted by guest blogger Cole Millen. Thanks Cole for your tips and contribution.

Your may want to refer back to my travel advisory blog and avoid intestinal upsets while traveling by thwarting the bugs etc. that can ruin your vacation. It always makes me cringe when I hear people relate how bad their trip was because they were sick the whole time. What a waste of money!

Have a great time wherever you might be heading but like Cole said, don’t over indulge just because you are on vacation. You will likely regret it later so do some planning ahead of time and save buying a new (larger wardrobe:). Muumuus and burlap sacks aren’t that attractive:(

Travelling this Season-Protect Yourself

Yes, it’s the time of year when many people from around the world take to the skies and find somewhere warm to spend a couple of weeks. It’s a great thing to do as it gives us a boost from the sun and some wonderful memories. Hopefully…

BUT what if you get sick? I mean, how much fun is that? All that money spent on a nice trip and you spend it hanging over a toilet or worse…in hospital…OR you feel fine but come home to find out months or even years later that you have Hepatitis, parasites or something equally nasty. In our business we have seen it all and believe me, it ain’t pretty but it is definitely preventable.

A year or so ago I put together a presentation and transcript that you can access here.  It tells the tale of the president of Biotics Research going to South America to visit maca plantations. There were other groups from around the world going too. They were eating food made by locals out in the boonies which is not the best idea since we aren’t used to the buggies etc that may be present. The Biotics group protected themselves but the others did not. Check out the short video to see what happened. Get the transcript.

The good news for Canadians is that we can get the product ADP from Biotics here in Canada and if you were to take one thing with you, this would be it. We can also get homeopathics to use without the side effects of a vaccine from BioActives. Liver Tonic 111 has the hepatitis nosodes in it and is part of our program for getting rid of Hep and preventing it. See below for an explanation of homeopathics and nosodes.

Another good thing to take with you is a well rounded HCl/Enzyme to take a bit before your meals. The one we recommend, Hydrozyme is from Biotics and it too is available in Canada. One more step wuld be acidophilus and Bio Doph 7 is our recommendation from Biotics. It is a pre and probiotic.

So there you have it. A very basic travel kit that you can get to insure you have a safe and healthy trip. These products are available only through health care practitioners. For pricing and to order, email us at

What Is A Nosode? In homeopathy, there is a special type of remedy called a nosode. A nosode (from nosos, the Greek word meaning disease) is a homeopathic preparation made from matter from a sick animal or person. Substances such as respiratory discharges or diseased tissues are used. It sounds repulsive, but the preparation, using alcohol, as well as the repeated dilution and succussion, essentially renders the substances harmless, while producing a powerful remedy. The use of nosodes in a prophylactic manner, for preventing disease, has been employed in veterinary and human homeopathy for many years. It is supported by various holistic veterinarians and authors. We have used them for years. They are safe and they work.

The Dangers of Vaccinations, and the Advantages of Nosodes for Disease Prevention”

Vaccinations represent a major assault on the body’s immune system. Attentuated organisms or chemicalled killed viruses or bacteria are injected directly into the blood stream, an unnatural route of infection. This profound insult, avoiding the body’s first line of defenses, and flooding the system with millions of organisms or viral particles, stresses the immune system in a way not of natures design. This insult causes irregularities and abnormalities in the immune system which then manifests as chronic diseases in humans and animals.”
