The Positive Side of Bacteria

Bacteria are bad for the human body, right? Well, not exactly. Forget about your mother’s lectures for a moment and consider what a vital component bacterium is in your body. Just as the natural environments around our world are interconnected, your body is a complex ecosystem (a social network, if you will) with trillions of bacteria and […]

Pat - There is indeed a positive side to bacteria.There are good bacteria and bad, harmful bacteria.When we try to rid our bodies of the bad bacteria we often times use medications and products that unfortunately take with it the good bacteria.There needs to be a synergy..a balance between the bacterias to allow the body to keep inflammation at a minimum so that diseases do not occur that wreak havoc on our health.I use Olive leaf Extract and probiotics to get the balance I need.I forego flu shots and take minimal antibiotics to help maintain and prevent.If we understand the roles of bacteria..and have knowledge of supplementation we do not have to introduce medications into our blood streams ..we can keep that balance and let the good bacteria take care of the bad bacteria.

Sally Bartle - How can you get someone to listen and understand when you try to explain to them that most of their health issues are caused from and unbalanced gut? I even offered to loan a friend my books from Doug Kaufmann and she said no thanks. She recently had her appendix removed and shortly after ended up with pneumonia. She also has lupus. Obviously, what she has been doing, listening to her doctors and taking many different drugs, is not working. I try not to come on too strong, as my son tells me I do, but it is so difficult to see people suffering when they can get well if they make some changes in their diet and use supplements instead of drugs.

Avoiding Pharmaceuticals for Treating Colds

Over 4 billion prescriptions were written in the U.S. last year.  The total annual cost of these prescriptions to the American public in 2012, according to the NY Times, was $325.7 billion.  This cost could have been much higher were it not for the generic drug sales, which account for 84% of all prescriptions. The […]

Pat - As kids we always were immediately given antibiotics for colds, flu etc.If you didn’t get a penicillin shot..it seemed that you just wouldn’t get better.Drug company reps are regular visitors to doctor offices.Sadly.Just give a pill..a potion..but hey, that cold may just be a virus and not an infectious disease or disorder.So that antibiotic capsule, that potion may just be setting up a secondary disease..again..getting rid of the good bacteria.
Stop the viruses in their track! Take Seagate products..prevent and maintain…be a smart and informed consumer..check the web site! Try a bottle of just one product..
avoid prescription drugs unless they are vital to ones well being!

Elena Vo - Sleep and rest are one of the most important ways for me to stay healthy. When I’m fully rested, I tend to make better choices about food/ exercise/ work loads on that particular day, and I completely agree it helps to ward off colds and other respiratory infections.

Lori Lemke - I use a host of natural remedies for a plethora of ailments. I haven’t bought and prescription or OTC medication in many years. In addition to my essential oil and netti pot are several Seagate products!

Escaping the Dreaded Summertime Flu

Unfortunately, warmer temperatures don’t make you immune to cold and flu germs that can affect your body any time of the year. Although there is no solitary “cold and flu season,” there are over 200 viruses that affect the body differently. And […]

Friday’s Farm Fact

Did you think that growing vegetables organically is easy? The soil is healthy, the plants are strong and the fertilizer is pure and nutritious. However, the hard work on an organic farm is controlling weeds without the use of  herbicides.  Monsanto and friends are not allowed to visit.  The result is that the weeds are […]

Betty - Are any of the seagate products helpful for Pulmonary Fibrosis?

Richard (Founder) - Seagate replies
Hi Betty- sorry, that is way beyond the scope of health food supplements and homeopathic remedies.

Friday’s Farm Fact

Did you know that there are not many places left in North America where you can run a farm and not have any neighbors around you. The Seagate farms use well water that flows underground directly from the Sierra mountains 25 miles away. There are no neighboring farms, which eliminates the chance of farm chemicals […]
