Bovine Colostrum Is A Food, Not A Drug Or Medicine

When my grandson came down with an extended period of vomiting and diarrhoea, I thought I had better see what the latest news is on the issue. I found this article, provided by the South Australian Government, in their IMVS Newsletter 65 Autumn 2007. The article said that most causes of acute infectious gastroenteritis are viral.

It quoted a prospective case control study of paediatric diarrhoea from Adelaide’s Women’s and Children’s Hospital showing that viral pathogens were detected in 71% of all infective diarrhoeal illnesses. It also said viral causes of diarrhoea infect nearly all children in the first few years of life.

What I was excited to read however, was that the main-stay of treatment is replacement of fluids and that while there are no specific antiviral agents available, a hyperimmune bovine colostrum has been shown to be an extremely useful prophylactic agent against rotavirus infection in children. How about that! Not new news for the Savvy team, but perhaps there are plenty of others, mums in particular, who are looking for simple solutions for their suffering child.

Bovine Colostrum is safe, non-toxic and can be consumed in any quantity without side-effects or drug interactions, and has been proven to be at least three times more effective than vaccination. Other articles we have written on the other benefits of colostrum are Colostrum And Macca: Natural Ingredients for Optimal Health; Immunity: What’s Your Back-Up Plan?; Tired of Being Sick And Tired?

Why Am I SO Tired All The Time?

2 Simple Steps Support Healthy Adrenals

Do you find yourself constantly asking “Why am I so tired all the time?

In addition to feeling exhausted from the time you wake to when you collapse into bed in the early evening, you have other disturbing symptoms:

  1. You find it hard to think clearly, and you feel like you spend your days slogging thru a vat of waist-deep oatmeal, it just takes way more effort than it should for you to accomplish anything.
  2. Despite feeling tired, you also feel edgy, and your emotions are fragile. You get jittery, jumpy, short-tempered, and often get accused of over-reacting, or blowing things out of proportion.
  3. You are emotionally strung-out and unable to cope with conflict and confrontation. Little things upset you more than they should.
  4. On top of all that you startle easily. Something as simple as the phone ringing sends you shooting out of your chair like the house is on fire, heart pounding wildly, and it takes you several minutes to recover and calm down.
 When confronted with stress of any degree, your heart begins to race, your head begins to swim, and you feel as if you are going to have a panic attack.

There doesn’t seem to be any middle ground, you are either dead-dog-tired or on “high alert”. You wonder “Is this is what it feels like to have a nervous breakdown?” After all, your friend with similar symptoms was put on antidepressants . . . so what is going on . . . ? Read More

Getting Your Hormones On Track

While few people know about adrenal fatigue, it’s been cited as a silent health epidemic, thought to affect up to 80% of the population at some stage.

Do any of these symptoms relate to you?

  • Tired of feeling tired?
  • Do you struggle to get out of bed or wake up feeling unrested?
  • Are you basically running on empty, feeling exhausted from dawn to dusk?
  • Does your body ache and you always feel exhausted?
  • Is your memory deteriorating, your thinking foggy?
  • Feeling twice your age?
  • Do you finish the day with nothing left in your tank?
  • Do you have trouble getting to sleep even thought you feel tired?
  • Do you have trouble dealing with stress?
  • Do you crave salty food, or use lots of stimulants like sugar or caffeine?

Many doctors at the forefront of wellness now believe enjoying all-day energy, a sharper brain, optimal immunity and better health could be as simple as nurturing these two tiny glands. We wrote about what a divers impact they have in your body in The Silent Health Saboteur.

Overcoming Prostate Cancer Naturally

Another prostate success story . . . how Ted overcame Prostate Cancer

The reason Ted came across the Savvy Team, was because despite his facing some very serious health challenges, an acquaintance was impressed by his positive attitude. This friend, Alan gave him some information on what might be able to help and Ted  became a member of the Savvy Team in August 2007 to make it easier to access products and training.

The dates are important, because Ted had been diagnosed with prostate cancer 18 months before, with 3 tumours plus a dangerously high PSA level of 28.  A level of more than 4 in the Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) test warrants further investigation.

Back in 1992, (15 years before) Ted had broken his back resulting in continual pain, which meant he took strong prescription drugs to deal with the pain.  Only a year after using the savvy strategies for wellness, (by the end of 2008), these painkillers were no longer required, no doubt a benefit of his savvier health regime and the other supporting substances Ted learned about through his support team. Read More
