Welcome Back Dr. Biosil!


by Mitch Booth

Back in October, I wrote an article, Two Smiths Go To Washington, where I correctly predicted that when ex-CEO of Equifax, Richard Smith, testified before Congress, nothing would happen. He allowed this company to be hacked and the private information of 143 million American’s is now on the dark internet.  He simply apologized and now he is living in the same gated community, probably in Florida, with Papa John. Congress has done nothing more to protect your private information and  another white collar executive gets a golden parachute. In the same article, I referenced the ongoing work by another Smith. Jeffery Smith, who has written the must read book, Truth In Science Under Attack and The Magnetic Field Of Money.  

There is no better example of science and the magnetic field of money than the paid for science that has protected Monsanto from the truth about glyphosate, the key ingredient in Monsanto’s RoundUp herbicide. Jeffery Smith has championed the victims of glyphosate induced cancers since the late nineties. For decades, government agencies have given the number one herbicide used in US agriculture a free pass on safety. They will now be held responsible for the outcome of four hundred civil damage cases that have finally made it to the courts. These trials will establish what Jeffery Smith describes as the three kinds of science: good science, mediocre science, and bought and paid for science. It all comes down to one word: integrity. Embrace it and there is only one kind of science: Mr. Smith’s book encourages us all to follow the money, do our own homework, and look be-hind the curtain.

Love Whole Foods has been endeavoring to do just that with our continuing community education programs for nearly three decades. These programs have been so popular we needed a larger space. We have just remodeled our front porch at the Ormond Store with air conditioning and increased seating. 

Returning to Ormond Beach from Belgium, Dr. Richard Passwater, PhD will be giving our second formal presentation in the new atrium. Dr. Passwater is the head bio-chemist for the Belgian company Bio-Minerals N.V. This company produces the EUs #1 selling nutraceutical, BioSil, for hair, skin, and nail restoration. 

The product is so effective that Christie Brinkley sings the praises of BioSil in her book Timeless Beauty (a 3 year N.Y. Times best seller). Want to follow the money of celebrity endorsements? You won’t find that here. She states in her book that she has no monetary relationship with Natural Factors (North American distributor of BioSil) or with Bio-Minerals.

So what makes this product so remarkable? BioSil is a patented matrix of silica chelated with choline stabilized orthosilicic acid. As Dr. Passwater explains, silica is the building block of collagen. Tough fibrous collagen not only holds our body together, but it plays a vital role in slowing down the skin’s aging process. More importantly, collagen plays a vital role in preventing the following aging problems: osteoporosis, joint deterioration, hardening of arterial walls, and gum disease, as well as preventing brittle hair, skin, and nails. 

Dr. Passwater will be presenting the newest research on BioSil’s impact on cognitive decline. When we are young, silica levels in our body are high, our skin is supple and glowing, our joints and bones elastic-flexible. As we age, silica levels decline and without significant restoration, the signs of aging ensue. So why don’t we just eat sand? Simple answer: we can’t digest it. Natural Factors, by utilizing Dr. Passwater’s research, has chelated orthomolecular silica with a choline molecule to solve the absorption issue. The result, as Dr. Passwater so aptly states, “BioSil doesn’t have side effects it simply has major side benefits.” Want science integrity? BioSil is the only product that puts the clinical data on the box! A recent report by the Cleveland Clinic documents 300,000 Americans, men and women over the age of 65, suffered a life changing hip fracture in 2017.  The cost to our healthcare system: 20 billion dollars!  The solution: fight the onset of the deterioration.  Invest in your bone superstructure by making “flexible” bone. What about the drug therapy?  Look behind the curtain: the true test is what happens when there’s a slip and fall. Does the bone bend or fracture?

So flex some joints on your way over to the Ormond store on Monday, August 6, 7 p.m. Dr. Passwater will only be there one night. Please call to reserve a seat.  He packed the house in November. 

Need more incentives? There will be products raffled including the 100 page book Collagen: Myths and Misconceptions. Remember that all of the products by Natural Factors will be on sale at 20 percent off for the entire month of August (not just one day). All of the BioSil related products will be on sale at 25 percent for those who attend the program. That should inspire you to walk, skip, and jump at this opportunity to join Dr. Passwater. Hope to see you there.

Mitch Booth is the owner of Love Whole Foods in Ormond Beach and Port Orange—the area’s largest organic and gluten free food stores.
