lthough it would not be possible to post every testimonial we receive for every product. We do try to post user comments on our more controversial products, including Cansema, CanSupport, H3O and HRx. Most of these can be found on the Cansema Testimonial page.
Every month we get one or more testimonials from someone who is pronounced terminally-ill, someone whose physicians have told him or her there is no chance, someone who - for all intents and purposes - has been proclaimed among the 'walking-dead' by priests of the orthodox community.
Our job is to change the course of the supposed inevitable -- and we routinely do.
Last month's case was Mr. Robert L. Banks, and this month, it's Phoebe Latham.
We won't offer a great deal of elaboration here, because our distributor in the UK, Mr. Jim Wright, went to the trouble of providing a very fine chronological journal on this case.
Suffice to say, this miraculous case - their term, not ours - (yes, the doctors who offered no hope are now calling Phoebe's case a "miracle"), should stand as an inspiration to all those who have been given "no hope" by purveyors of chemotherapy, radiation, and radical surgery everywhere.
Not every case can be won. But as long as there is life, in every cancer case, there is hope.
And that's the most important thing a visitor to our site can learn - whether they choose to purchase any of our products or not.
he success of our CanSupport line of nutritional supplements for cancer patients has lead to requests to see these products in more "travel-friendly" bottles. In particular, some customers have complained that it isn't always easy to keep things refrigerated while on the road. Others have asked for encapsulated product so they don't have to "taste the herbs."
For these and other reasons, we have decided to introduce a complete line of CanSupport products in capsule form. Priced at just $19.50, each bottle contains 120 Capsules (about a 30 day supply) and customers can opt to include three (3) such bottles to substitute for the original 32 fl. oz. version.
Based on our own research, we still feel the "aloe infused" version is the better product - easier to digest and more bioavailable. Above all else, efficacy is our #1 claim. Nonetheless, there are realities to daily living that the original product didn't take into account, admittedly. And one of these realities is convenience.
At this writing, two versions are in stock (Lung and Cervical / Ovarian / Uteran). The balance of all the remaining eight formulas are scheduled to arrive by no later than December 20th (2001).
If you have specific questions about these items, please let us know.
Our order forms, both online and offline will be regularly updated to indicate in which formulas we are fully stocked.
Dental Care System?
Users applaud the combined
effects of Omega III Dentrifrice
with H3O as the follow-up mouthrinse
n the premier issue of The Ashwin (Oct., 2001), we reintroduced Omega III Dentifrice and gave a brief history of the product. What we did not know at the time we were reformulating the product was that Colgate Palmolive had dropped their Viadent line of dentifrice - the only other toothpaste on the market, to the best of our knowledge, that uses zinc chloride. (On the Colgate Palmolive web site, the company gives a complete list of all their active toothpaste brands and in which geographical areas they are sold in.)
By mid summer (2001) we began getting reports from users who were quite upset with delays in reintroduction. Several customers indicated that nothing else cleaned their teeth, removed plaque, and got rid of gingivitis as well as our Omega III, and with Viadent (which worked along the same lines, though not as strong) no longer available, they were frustrated. (Older users tell us, the product never worked as well after the galangal was removed and the product was revised under Colgate's ownership -- but that's another story...)
The claims concerning Viadent certainly made sense. One of our staffers was personal friends with the inventor / co-patent holder, Dr. Peter Ledanyi, a Hungarian chemist. Dr. Ledanyi had been employed by Vipont Pharmaceutical during its development days. For years, Vipont openly advertised that Viadent got rid of gingivitis and periodontal disease - a claim backed up with a potpourri of clinical data supporting their claims.
There were, as one would expect, detractors in the orthodox dental community - some suggest this is because the basic formulas was "too" effective. These included claims that bloodroot-based formulas for dentrifrice were not all that effective; that prolonged use of bloodroot orally could hurt normal cell development (namely, oral dysplasia); cause topical patches ( leukoplakia); general expressions of concern about using sanguinaria orally; and then, there are a handful of complaints listed by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration.
Just as many claims from respected dental surgeons and academics went the other way, including advice to parents to use zinc-based dentrice such as Viadent in children under 12, because it was better for them than the many popular formulas now using oxidizing agents; and then, the internet is chockful of folk remedies for the cure of gingivitis and periodontal disease using any number of toothpaste or mouthwash recipes that include bloodroot.
It is our belief that generally speaking, and with few exceptions, the zinc chloride (ZnCl4) herbal combinations, which are the foundation upon which Omega III is built, are soundly superior to other dentifrices now on the market if properly formulated and manufactured. Not surprisingly, conspiracy claims have floated back to Alpha Omega from parties claiming to have inside knowledge at Colgate Palmolive. (It should be noted here that the Omega III product is not exactly the same as the old Viadent formulas. Changes had to be made to ensure that we were not in violation of their Vipont's original international patents.)
According to sources claiming inside knowledge at Colgate, the decision to drop Viadent was a strategic one. Viadent was not nearly a profitable line as some of Colgate's standard bearers (i.e. Colgate, Crest, Ultra Brite, etc.) Moreover, Viadent users were much stronger brand loyalists, which meant that there was a tendency for Viadent to cannibalize market share from the other toothpaste products, but the reverse would be much rarer.
As one source put it, "Think about it. Why would you pay $88,000,000 for a company, only to close down the entire lines of product? Is it possible that at some point it is cheaper to buy a company and shut it down, than it is to keep it operating and let it eat away at your existing flagship products? When you consider that Colgate owns 40% of the dentifrice market, it's not hard to see the obvious answer: 'yes'."
H3O & Omega III:
hen Alpha Omega Labs first introduced H3O in early 2001, we knew from sources that had experimented with a precursor product that there were marked benefits to using diluted H3O as a mouthrinse. We knew that H3O was at once both a strong anti-microbial with a "Log 8" bacterial kill rate and a non-caustic, non-corrosive, completely non-toxic material with an acceptable organoleptic (taste) profile. These very properties make for a great mouthwash, almost by definition.
Since Omega III was already a favorite among both our own staff and regular Alpha Omega customers, we knew that there could possibly be benefits to combining the two -- but we didn't realize how much.
User reports from the field indicate that when the two are combined, you get a "plaque-free cleaning that makes you feel like you just stepped out of the dentist's chair," notes one customer.
More startling still are reports like those received from Bob Lansing of the USA. His report is on this site, but he provided additional comments by phone indicating that his dentist couldn't help but comment that, "your teeth look like you've been brushing and flossing every day."
"The truth is," he comments, "I'm like most people: not nearly that regular, as I should be." When Bob told him that he had been rinsing with an "acid solution" at pH 1.6, the dentist immediately asked to inspect his teeth: "You may have irreparably damaged your teeth from acid etching."
"He couldn't find any evidence of tooth damage - at which point he requested more information on the rinse I had been using..." Bob notes.
Another finding of particular note, is the effects that users have reported on their teeth coloring. "It's not comparable to the better teeth-whitening techniques that the dentists have at their disposal," noted one emailer, "but the use of H3O as a mouthwash definitely whitens the teeth by several shades. The effects are unmistakeable."
The most common comment made about the Omega III/H3O combination is that it provides a more thorough, cleaner feeling than can be obtained from any other dentifrice/mouthrinse combination.
Only time and the eventual employment of well-designed clinicals will confirm what Alpha Omega users already suspect: that they found a perfect dental care system for use between dental visits.
