We see it in scientific literature, we are continually bombarded with it at educational medical seminars, and allopathic medical doctors, as opinion setters, have for as long as I can remember insisted that heart disease is the direct result of elevated blood cholesterol.  For years, the only accepted method of therapy for heart disease has been prescribing medications to lower cholesterol and a diet that severely restricts fat intake (also intended to lower cholesterol).

 It’s Not True!

It is now becoming evident that these recommendations are no longer scientifically or morally defensible.  The turning point was the discovery made a few years ago that inflammation in the artery wall is in fact the real cause of heart disease.  This discovery is slowly leading to a paradigm shift in how heart disease and other chronic ailments will be regarded and treated.

 

What is inflammation?

Inflammation is quite simply our bodies’ natural defense to foreign invaders such as a bacteria, toxins and viruses.  If we chronically expose our bodies to injury by toxins or foods which the human body was never designed to process, chronic inflammation occurs.  In short, chronic inflammation can be very harmful.

What role does inflammation play?

Simply stated, without the presence of inflammation in the body, cholesterol has no reason to accumulate in the wall of the blood vessels.  It is inflammation that causes cholesterol to become trapped.  Without inflammation, cholesterol would move freely throughout the body as nature intended.

Which are the 2 biggest causes of chronic inflammation?

  •  An overload of simple and highly processed carbohydrates such as white sugar and flour
  •  And the excess consumption of omega-6 vegetable oils such as soybean, corn and sunflower that are found in many processed foods

Foods, loaded with refined sugars and simple carbohydrates, or processed with omega-6 oils for long shelf life, have been the mainstay of our diets for six decades.  These foods are slowly poisoning everyone.

What happens to our bodies?

While we savour the tantalizing taste of a sweet roll, our bodies respond alarmingly as if a foreign invader has declared war on our immune system.  So how does eating a little sweet roll create a cascade of inflammation to make you ill?  Basically, when we consume simple carbohydrates such as refined sugar, our pancreas, in response, releases insulin whose primary purpose is to drive the sugar into our cells to be stored for energy.  As our cells become filled with sugar (glucose), any extra sugar is turned away.  Blood sugar continues to rise producing more insulin and the glucose converts to stored fat.

Message from the President of Akuna Health Product Inc.

     Akuna Products Kosher Certified

 

 

Valued Customers and Distributors,

It is my great pleasure to inform you all that now Akuna products, namely ALVEO Grape, ALVEO Mint, Onyx Plus, MasterVit and Pinky are all KOSHER certified.

Recent market research shows that the demand for kosher products is growing stronger. In my opinion, more than half of the people who seek out kosher foods do so because they believe that they are cleaner and safer than non-kosher items. It is certainly being considered trendy and healthy, much like the recent upsurge in the popularity of non-GMO (non-genetically modified) foods. Apart from people who follow the religious practices, some people are simply reassured by the additional qualities of kosher foods, initially developed from religious practices. In fact, many people from different religious background including many vegetarians prefer to eat kosher foods because of their strict dietary requirements and health benefits.

The Kosher symbol on the label of a product means that a kosher certification authority has inspected the production process from start to finish. This authority checks every ingredient, reactor, utensil, container and piece of machinery to ensure that nothing non-kosher enters the food at any stage of production. Products that have been certified as kosher are labeled with a mark called a “hekhsher” which in Hebrew means “kosher approval” and generally identifies the organization that certified the product.

The process of certification involves examining the ingredients used to make the food, examining the process by which the product is prepared, and periodically inspecting the processing facilities to make sure that kosher standards and policies are maintained.

As I always mention, honesty, integrity and commitment is the foundation of our philosophy at Akuna Health Products, thus it is our endeavor to manufacture natural health products and food supplements in accordance to GMP regulations, ISO Standards and using only the highest grade of raw materials that are certified Kosher to ensure the purity and quality of our finished products.        

Wishing you Health and Success,

Zdenka Forst

Akuna Health Products Inc.

My journey to naturopathy.

My medical studies and practice in Czechoslovakia before the “Velvet Revolution” were the same as the same as the studies and practice of all other doctors there. At that time only one medical doctrine was valid – which meant that everything that did not belong to it was put into the “quackery” category and the patient played very passive, uninvolved role in the health system.

What can you tell us of Alveo’s origin?

The Alveo formulation is the result of clinical practice. I noticed a lot of problems with a majority of my patients. Examples ranged from a lack of energy, fatigue, an inability to digest and utilize nutrients, metabolic problems, symptoms of intoxication, etc. I always wanted to make a product that would help a majority of my patients regardless of their diagnosis, and enable them to live a healthier life.

It looks as if you wanted to develop a universal remedy, can you explain that?

I wanted to develop a product especially designated as a preventative maintenance program for the body. Diseases have different causes. They can be alien invaders, as in bacteria or viral, but are often invited by the less than optimal function of our organs and bodily system. Approximately 95% of people have problem resulting from lack of nutrients. The abundance of toxins generated during the metabolic process can be one of the reasons our body is not able to eliminate them. I wanted to help to eliminate those toxins and their resulting problems.

Where did you start?

I worked with herbal preparations that my patients were using, with some success, and had to use all my experience in the creation of Alveo. The concrete work on the product started when the goal was determined… Read more

An interview with Dr. Sohrab Khoshbin  (Part 1)

Dr. Bertlik: We should tell the readers how Alveo was designated. When I think about it, I think that throughout the years that we have worked together, we’ve never talked about your reasons for working on Alveo. We should start from the beginning. When was the first time you contemplated working on a herbal formulation?

Dr. Khoshbin: I thought about it when I was a child. We live din Teheran, Iran; when I was born. My father was phytotherapist, and he was very successful. My mother was his assistant and I tried to observe my father carefully and help him. I wanted to be like him. I feel that I have fulfilled my childhood dream.

In that time was there anything like Alveo?

No. I started to think about it during my practice in Canada, after my university studies and after I found out the typical problems and needs of my patients.

Tell us more about university and your studies.

I obtained my academic education in Canada. Read more

Alveo is a harmonizing tonic

Tonics, plants with straightening or stimulating effects (the term “roborans” indicates tonic of a certain type) are very important for the prevention and treatment of disease in Europe and the East. 19% of all plants used in Chinese medicine are tonics, as are 33% of all plants used in Japanese medicine. These plants do not contain toxic or addictive substances. Instead, the key chemicals in the plant increase the unspecific resistance, or immunity, of an organism. The common characteristic of tonics is that their effects are less outwardly visible in healthy people; nonetheless, these plant extracts will start to act immediately… Read more
