You will not see Coca-Cola posting this video any time soon. But you don’t want to miss it. I grew up on Coke and lots of other garbage. No ever mentioned that coke, as well as all soft drinks, are incredibly dangerous to our health. In fact, I have always said that my bones are made our of Coca-cola and Oreo Cookies. What garbage! But we, meaning my family, didn’t know any better back then.
Or at least we didn’t know any better. Have a look, and then never touch another soft drink! Your body and your health will thank you.
Once you achieve the level of physical health discussed in this book, what remains to complete the picture is cultivating a positive mental attitude, which will be enhanced by exploring your own spirituality. Great Health cannot be achieved without possessing a positive mental attitude.
If your mind is against you, you don’t have a chance of being healthy or accomplishing the various goals you set for yourself. As we begin to put the right things in the body it becomes easier for the mind to motivate and inspire us, which is one of its central functions. With all this comes confidence and when confidence is combined with skill, you become unconquerable.
The mind is a critical component that can thwart our best efforts to be healthy. A negative attitude will drag the body down with it. Our mind and spirit have the final say in our health. A typically healthy body can be destroyed by disease if there is a breakdown in the human spirit. On the other hand, every function of the body is greatly enhanced when the mind and Spirit are focused together on the same affirmative goal of staying healthy and living to the best of our ability. We need to exercise the spirit the way we exercise the body, consistently, habitually and with determined purpose. Undoubtedly, great confidence will follow.
Every person that follows my 7 Component Health Protocol, in part or in its entirety feels better as their health improves. Achieving Great Health is simple to understand, but difficult to achieve. I am not perfect but I strive to touch upon each and every of the 7 components to give myself optimal health.

An algae product known as Cryptomonadales is grown in Taiwan and marketed throughout Asia, Australia and North America. The claims made about this strain of chlorella, such as how it is grown and what strain it actually is, are ridiculous. The algae that they say is grown is a strain known as Chlorella sorokiniana, which is named after the researcher who discovered it, Constantine Sorokin.
Chlorella sorokiniana is a thermopilic algae that thrives in warm water at temperatures of 100 – 107 degrees F (40 – 42 degrees C). Most Chlorella strains are grown at much lower temperatures, around 55 – 80 degrees F (15 – 22 degrees C). The biggest problem with Chlorella are the pheophorbides, an derivative of chlorophyll, chemical structures that are dangerous to our health if consumed in large quantities. Pheophorbides must be controlled during the spray drying process. Measured in milligrams as a percent of the food per grams with 60mg/100 grams being the limit allowed by law. Watershed Chlorella has a level of 27 – 30 mg pheophorbides. Some Chlorella producers have over 180 mg pheophorbides, well over the maximum allowable contamination level. Therefore, this chlorella cannot be sold for consumption alone but must be combined with other algae such as Spirulina in order to bring the pheophorbide to acceptable levels. More than 50 chlorella companies in Taiwan went out of business in the 1970’s and 80’s because they could not control the Pheophorbide levels in the chlorella they were producing.
Chlorella pyrenoidosa contains Alpha Linolenlic Acid (ALA), another PUFA that that is an essential nutrient, meaning that it is required by body and must be consumed since the body cannot produce it.
Cryptomonadalesclaim: “Peroxisome Proliferator Activated Receptors Crypto Power™ Chlorella Cryptomonadales® Chlorella Sorokiniana The only known algae in the world containing significant amounts of all three naturally occurring Alpha, Beta, and Gamma PPARs.”
Chlorella sorokiniana contains both ALA and Beta linolenic acid (BLA), however only spirulina has gamma linolenic acid (GLA). The claim by the producers of cryptomonadales that they have combined Chlorella sorokiniana with Spirulina plantenis into one strain of algae is completely false because this is simply not possible. Spirulina is not an algae, but rather a cyanobacteria (blue bacteria) that is both animal and vegetable since it exhibits both characteristics regarding its biological classification. The blue in spirulina is phycocyanin, a powerful antioxidant. Phyco means algae and cyanin means blue. But Spirulina does not have a nucleus and therefore cannot be classified a plant and why it is classified as a cyanobacterium, or blue bacteria.
The reason this is important is because we know that it is impossible to cross a plant with an animal, in this case a bacteria with an algae. It would be like crossing a dog with a strain of corn. There has been speculation that they have gene-spliced these two together, fusing them into a new species. If that is true then it is a result of genetic modification (GMO), commonly known as franken-food because it is a food that has been tinkered with by man. When man tinkers with nature rather than mold it to his benefit, things tend to go wrong. That is meaning of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, that tinkering with nature will result in a catastrophe.
What the producers of cryptomonadales fail to produce is a Certificate of Analysis (COA). A COA is provided with every batch of chlorella and spirulina that is produced. Algae products are not permitted to be sold without a COA, which is true of Herbal Extracts such as Ginkgo Biloba. I would never purchase and/or sell a chlorella that did not have a COA and complete nutritional analysis such as this one. Chlorella and Spirulina companies routinely refuse to offer a COA to the public, which is unfortunate since it is the COA that the algae industry rests its case on. In the case of cryptomonadales it is even more imperative that a COA is offered to anyone who asks for it since they claim to have created a whole new strain of algae. Until now, they have refused to release a COA of cryptomonadales. And just to be clear, an analysis of what nutrients are in cryptomonadales is not a COA. A COA must be attached to a particular batch of algae that is produced and when it was produced.
The producer does not sell cryptomonadales® Chlorella Sorokiniana in powder form, which is quite odd since many people prefer to take chlorella and Spirulina in powder form rather than tablets. If they were to release cryptomonadales in powder form their product could be analyzed and evaluated by a third party such as the Japan Food Research Laboratories, Tokyo, Japan, one of several companies capable of conducting such an objective, independent and reliable analysis.
My opinion is that Cryptomonadales® Chlorella Sorokiniana is a combination of Chlolrella sorokiniana and Spirulina plantenis, separate powders in tablet form and not a new strain of algae as the producers claim. Spirulina must be combined with Chlorella sorokiniana in order to bring the pheophorbides down to acceptable levels, below 60mg/100 gram. However, we don’t know what those levels are because they won’t publish their COA. Other than the complete array of PUFAs and PPARs (alpha, beta and gamma linenloic acids), Cryptomonadales does not have much of an advantage over other forms chlorella such as Chlorella pyrenoidosa and Chlorella vulgarius. I want to be clear that I have nothing against Cryptomonadales® Chlorella Sorokiniana. It is a good health product to consume, but the producers are misrepresenting what it is and how it is produced. They are being deliberately deceptive about their own product in order to sell more of their product and market it as being the latest technology and innovations in the world of health. The truth is that this kind of deliberate misrepresentation is hurting the algae industry because it causes confusion. My question is that why is there has not been more calls from within the scientific community
I invite them to provide the world with evidence that they have indeed created a new strain of algae by combining a bacterium (Spirulina) with a plant (Chlorella). Until now, they have offered no scientific or photographic evidence that their claims are indeed true. Therefore, the untenable claims made by the producers of Cryptomonadales are perpetrating a hoax by claiming that they have invented a new strain of algae in my opinion.

Negative Ion Generator: Restores ion balance in any room.
UV light: Kills bacteria and virus.
HEPA Filter: Dust, air particulate, pollen, smog, and dust mite excriment elimination. Also removes bacteria and viruses from the air. Also eliminates formaldehyde, benzene and other volatile organic chemicals.
Ozone: Oxidizes and effectively removes odor, bacteria, mold, reduces smog and other chemical pollutants. Ozone destroys harmful substances by breaking them down at a molecular level.
Ozone:Ozone is formed naturally in the atmosphere, as a colorless gas having a very pungent odor.Ozone kills microbes up to 5,000 times faster than weaker oxidizers like chlorine. Unlike chlorine, ozone oxidation leaves no harmful or foul byproducts and residue only oxygen. Further, microorganisms can’t build up a tolerance to ozone as they can to less reactive chemicals like chlorine. t, with a redox potential of 2.07. When the extra oxygen atom splits off from the ozone molecule, two things happen: disinfection and oxidation. This happens as these atoms quickly destroy the bacteria, mold, mildew and odor as soon as they come into contact. The end result is clean breathable oxygen. Ozone destroys harmful fumes, chemical gases, odors, or any other scented air pollutants.
Negative Ions:A predominantly positive ion (cation) environment can be quite damaging to our health. A positive ion buildup frequently occurs in cold climates, especially in buildings with poor ventilation where pollutants can accumulate, which can lead to Sick Building Syndrome . In general, polluted environments are rich in positive ions. Positive ions are also produced by combustion, electronic equipment, synthetic materials such as clothing and plastics, and by the wind traveling over dry, barren land, as has been witnessed for thousands of years. While positive ions acidify the body, negative ions have the opposite effect of alkalizing it.
Negative ions are typically found in high concentrations near waterfalls, in pine forests, after electrical storms and by the seashore where they are produced by waves crashing onto the shore. The average household shower produces a substantial amount of negative ions , which is one of the reasons why people often feel better after showering. Negative ions (anion) have been called bio-energy because of the healthy environment they create for all living creatures. The human body functions more efficiently and is much healthier in a negative ion environment. Negative ions weigh much less than the positive ions that compose cooked foods, which is why cooked foods feel heavier in your stomach when you eat them. They are harder to digest because they lack the electrons that make food readily absorbable by the body. When we eat cooked foods, we are consuming hydrogen ions, which are positively charged and cause oxidation in the body, accelerated aging and disease of every kind.

HEPA Filtration: (High Efficiency Particulate Air) HEPA filters can remove at least 99.97% of airborne particles 0.3 micrometres (µm) in diameter. Particles of this size are the most difficult to filter and are thus considered the most penetrating particle size (MPPS). Particles that are larger or smaller are filtered with even higher efficiency. Our HEPA filters are composed of a mat of randomly arranged fibers. Key metrics affecting function are fiber density and diameter, and filter thickness. The air space between HEPA filter fibers is much greater than 0.3 m.
Dr. Greger says: “People sure love their pond scum”. Here we go again. When someone is determined to prove a point in the health world, they cherry-pick a study or two to “prove” what they already believe. Dr. Greger of NutritionFacts.org is typical example of this kind of irresponsible presentation of the facts. I show in this video that anyone can quickly present a study, take a couple of quotes out of context, and call it good. What this does is confuse everyone about what is actually healthy, and what is not.
I don’t know Dr. Greger, and I’m sure he’s a nice guy. But we when it comes to chlorella and spirulina, he is clueless. He proclaims they are “pong scum”, throws up a study or two to prove it then it’s on to the next half-truth and innuendo. When it comes to Spirulina and Chlorella, I’m having none of it.
Yes, I undoubtedly do love my pond scum, but I am smart enough not to refer to them as “pond scum”, but rather explain to people how and why Spirulina is one of the most powerful foods on earth. Maybe you should take closer notice to Dr. Bob since Naturopaths tend a actually know something about health and don’t dismiss the world’s most nutritious foods as the scum that floats upon water.
David Wolfe has stated that water is conscious, perhaps even more so than Buddha and Jesus. This is one of the most ridiculous notions I’ve ever heard regarding water. Water is an inert, inorganic substance with two hydrogen atoms and one oxygen molecule. It has no more life than a stone, some plastic or a wooden table. Before the wood was fashioned into a table it was a tree. All plant and animal life created by God is conscious on some level.
However, an inanimate object does not have consciousness and to state that two hydrogen molecules and one oxygen molecule that have bonded now has consciousness is absurd and the claim has absolutely no scientific evidence to support it. The anthropopathic practice of assigning feelings or consciousness to inanimate objects has its roots in primitive cultures and has not been in vogue for thousands of years. Water does not think nor is it omniscient anymore than a plant is. Giving life to inanimate objects is formally known as Animism.
Although a plant or animal is conscious, it is not sentient or does it have the ability of self-reflection. Only humans are sentient, which is a gift from God. As for water, when you consume it, you are not drinking anything that thinks.
There is nothing more important for the body than water. If people simply drank enough water and kept their bodies sufficiently hydrated, 60% to 80% of the chronic disease we find today would be seriously abated if not completely eliminated. Putting poor quality unfiltered water into the body can be worse than not drinking water at all. Chlorine and other contaminants are common in many waters through the country and these should not be consumed. However, with proper filtration, most water becomes suitable for drinking. Here is an overview of our filters.
It is imperative that chlorine be removed from water before it is consumed. Chlorine dries the skin and scalp causing them to flake. It is also a known carcinogen and has been linked to the increased risk of stillbirth and birth defects. It also disrupts digestion by killing the probiotics (friendly bacteria) in the body. Aside from many of the problems inherent in municipal water, proper carbon, sediment and fluoride filtration can bring most of it up to acceptable drinking standards.
Particulate Filter:Removes sediment and particles from water down to 1 or 5 micron depending on the filter.
Chlorine Filter:Chlorine is used in municipal water supplies to disinfect the water.
Virtually all water ionizers come with a built-in carbon filter that will remove chlorine from the water.
BIRM Filter: BIRM® is an efficient and economical media for the reduction of dissolved iron and manganese compounds from raw water supplies. BIRM® acts as an insoluble catalyst to enhance the reaction between dissolved oxygen (D.O.) and the iron compounds. In ground waters the dissolved iron is usually in the ferrous bicarbonate state due to the excess of free carbon dioxide and is not filterable. BIRM®, acting as a catalyst between the oxygen and the soluble iron compounds, enhances the oxidation reaction of Fe++ to Fe+++ and produces ferric hydroxide which precipitates and may be easily filtered.
Iron Filtration: There are two options for iron filtration. The best is KDF85 because it does not affect the taste of the water it filters. The other is an iron resin filter, which is more effective although the water will have a metallic taste after it is filtered. An iron resin filter should only be used if the iron levels in the water exceed 10 ppm (parts per million).
Sulfur Filtration: Having sulfur (hydrogen sulfide) in your source water will give the water a rotten egg smell. KDF85 media is the most effective filter for sulfur removal. Carbon also removes sulfur, but not as effectively as KDF85.
Fluoride Filtration: Alum (natural aluminum) is the only material that will effectively remove fluoride from a water source. However, the use of alum can sometimes leave a taste in the water.
Fluoride is injected into municipal water on the premise that without it, children’s teeth will not develop properly. The fluoride used in municipal water is sodium fluoride, which is derived from the processing of fertilizer. Fluoride can be filtered effectively with an alum filter, which uses a natural form of aluminum.[i] Fluoride is also present in many processed foods such as soft drinks (1 ppm), milk (.3 – 9 ppm), breakfast cereal (5 – 15 ppm), and juice (.3 – 6.8 ppm). Municipal water contains an average of .6 – .9 ppm fluoride. High levels of fluoride can lead to dental fluorosis or pitting of the teeth. It also adversely affects the central nervous system. Below are quotes on the practice of adding fluoride to drinking water by researchers, scientists and others in the medical community.
“I am appalled at the prospect of using water as a vehicle for drugs. Fluoride is a corrosive poison that will produce serious effects on a long-range basis. Any attempt to use water this way is deplorable.” Dr. Charles Gordon Heyd,Past President of the American Medical Association.
“Based on data from the National Academy of Sciences, current levels of fluoride exposure in drinking water may cause arthritis in a substantial portion of the population long before they reach old age.” Dr. Robert Carton, former EPA Scientist.
[i] Alum is naturally occurring and not toxic because of its large molecular size that cannot be absorbed through skin pores. It should not be confused with the synthetic forms such as aluminum chlorhydrate or aluminum zicarnium that are readily absorbed through the skin. They are commonly found in carbonated soft drink cans, beer cans, baking-soda, pickles, aluminum foil, liquid antacids and antiperspirants.
Reverse Osmosis filters use a membrane which removes many contaminants from water. They are usually paired with a Granulated Activated Charcoal filter to remove chlorine. Most reverse osmosis filters are installed under the sink and have a holding tank. But RO is NOT Filtration. Rather it is purification since it removes everything from the water including the minerals.
“The longer one drinks purified water, the more likely the development of mineral deficiencies and an acid state. Disease and early death is more likely to be seen with the long term drinking of purified water.”Your Body’s many Cries for Water, F. Batmanghelidj, M.D. p. 18.
Well Water Water Ionizers can be used with most well water. The two most common problems found in well water are hydrogen sulfide and high iron content. Both of these can be filtered out. Hydrogen sulfide can be filtered with a granulated carbon filter. Iron can be filtered with a resin filter at point of use. If your well is deep, over 150′, that is usually enough natural filtration not to be concerned about the water being contaminated. If your septic system is within 50′ of the well, you should have a bacteria test done.
Hydrogen Sulfide If your water smells like rotten eggs (sulfur), you have hydrogen sulfide in your water. As it off-gases the bad sulfur smell, people are led to believe the water is undrinkable. Hydrogen sulfide can be filtered out using a granulated carbon filter. You can also use a granulated KDF pre-filter installed either under the sink or on the countertop.
Iron Content in Water High iron content in water can cause problems for a Water Ionizer. If you wish to use a Water Ionizer with water known to have a high iron content, we recommend using an iron resin pre-filter. They can be used on the countertop or installed directly into the line below the sink. They are installed on the cold water line since only cold or tepid water should be used with a Water Ionizer.
High iron content in wells, and sometimes municipal water supplies, are more often caused by the well casing and already corroded pipes in the house. Less often it is the actual high level of iron in the existing ground water, although it can be quite high in select places around the country. Iron can be filtered to a great degree through a KDF pre-filter. There are whole-house iron filters that are costly, but effective.
I am an expert on health, and don’t get into politics is a conservative political commentator, nationally syndicated columnist, author, radio talk show host, and attorney. What does Ben know about natural health? About as much as much wife, who is a medical doctor. He spoke about the issue on April 20, National Marijuana Day, which I thought was fitting. I am sure Ben is a nice guy, but when you dismiss an entire industry and suggest that natural things cannot cure you body of any disease, such as cancer or arthritis, that’s where I step in to defend that industry, as well as myself, because when you attack what I do for a living as silly, if not deceptive, I tend to take offense.
