    Greetings all,

    I have been reading the posts about sea salt and water cure and it occurred to me all that sounds similar to a product I had been using but ran out of and never got more. It's called Cell Food and the best I remember, it's either a sea algae or sea kelp product. It's along the lines of Vitamin O which I read doesnt'ly really work but this did help me - maybe because it's loaded with those trace minerals mentioned in other posts. Anyway, here's an excerpt about it. Typing in Cell Food in a search engine would net more sources.


    CELLFOOD oxygenates the body's cells • enhances energy • boosts the immune system • detoxifies the body • increases cellular respiration • balances the body metabolism • delivers nutrients in a vital ionic form • increases the bioavailability of other nutrients.

    CELLFOOD is a proprietary ionic formula containing dissolved oxygen, electrolytes, 78 ionic minerals, 34 enzymes and 17 amino acids— which provides an unsurpassed oxygenating source, and nutritional delivery system, to every cell of the body. CELLFOOD's unique structure oxygenates and feeds the cells— cleaning and 'tuning up' our body's systems all day long.

    Oxygen aids the functioning of every body system. That's why aerobic exercise is so important to our good health. Yet even when we exercise regularly (and most Americans do not), we are not getting optimum levels of oxygen into our bodies. Why? Because ours is an increasingly oxygen-deficient environment— filled with chemicals, exhaust fumes, industrial emissions, and burned fossil fuels. It's estimated that the earth's atmosphere used to contain 38-50% oxygen; that it is now down to about 20%; and that in some urban environments, it's as low as 10%! CELLFOOD is capable of holding its components in a full aqueous solution and delivering them to every single cell. Its unique time-release delivery system ensures that nascent oxygen is created when CELLFOOD is mixed with water or juice, and that the vital nutrients are rapidly absorbed by the body at the cellular level. And CELLFOOD contains only the finest all-natural plant substances.

    Carolyn, great article. This is a bump so others can read this too. It already went to the second page.

    Board is moving very fast today.......................

    Thanks, Carolyn..Where does one get Cellfood?

    in the Seattle area at a store called Puget Consumer Co-op or PCC. I've seen it available on the web and I think the home page of the product has a link to local retailers. I tried it because sometimes I feel my muscles (espcially my leg muscles) aren't getting enough oxygen, expecially when climbing stairs, an incline, etc. It costs about $26 for 1 oz but it's very concentrated and lasts about 6 weeks.

    I bumped this even though it's a bit old because I had run out, my local store didn't have any so I ordered off the web. It arrived yesterday and I've had the best day I've had since I ran out (about a month ago). Pain wise and energy wise. There is something in this stuff my body likes.

    Blessings & Cheers

    Sorry to keep bumping this but since I felt so much better when I was taking it and improved again when I re-started it, I think it's something some of you folks should check into. Oxygenated muscles are happier muscles.

    I don't think it has any sea kelp or algae in it. But then, other companies have tried to recreate it but can't so I don't know what it comes from originally.

    Here's some info from the catalog of Coral Connection, which sells Cellfood, Cellfood Silica, and Cellfood Diet.

    It was developed by Everett Lafayette Storey who was also the inventor of the technology used to develop the triggering mechanism enabling the Hydrogen Bomb to exist.

    "Storey was an expert in the little-known uses of Deuterium, the only non-radioactive isotope of Hydrogen, BI-Ploar DI-Base technology, as well as heavy water and atomic binding-force technology. From this, he created Cellfood (R) (Deuterium Sulfate), a product he claimed was the key to any disease treatment in the world.

    Everett L. Storey's formula has the unique ability to dissociate the water molecule into nascent Hydrogen and nascent Oxygen. This spitting of the water molecule results in the release of nascent Hydrogen and Oxygen gases simultaneously in a chain reaction that only involves about one five-hundred thousandth of the available moisture in the body at one time. This results in an additional source of Oxygen."

    I heard on a tape that it was first developed for the military to clean water some time ago. In 1995 it was classified as a nutritional supplement and not as a drug or patented medicine.

    OK, what is nascent: Webster's says "beginning to exist or develop". So I suppose that nascent Hydrogen would be Hydrogen in its bare, original, primal state or something like that.

    Hmm, you know Otto Warburg got a Nobel prize for determinig the cause of cancer was cells existing in an anaerobic state (no oxygen).

    Well, now we've had our science lesson today!

    FTC Attacks "Stabilized Oxygen" Claims
    Stephen Barrett, M.D.
    Various products referred to as "stabilized" or "aerobic" oxygen," are being marketed with claims that they can cure disease by increasing oxygen delivery to the cells. Some claim that "oxygen deficiency" or "oxygen starvation" is an underlying cause of disease and has been increasing because the oxygen content of the earth's atmosphere has been decreasing and junk food does not contain enough oxygen [A, B, C, D]. These claims are absurd -- for several reasons.

    There is no reason to believe that the products actually deliver oxygen to the body. It is possible to use an electric current to add a tiny amount of oxygen to water, but to access it, a human would need gills.
    Even if they could, taking oxygen into the stomach through a liquid, pill, or food would not significantly raise the body's blood level of oxygen.
    Oxygen enters the bloodstream through the lungs. The body adapts to what it needs by changing its breathing rate.
    The oxygen content of air is not changing and remains constant at 21% regardless of the weather.
    If enough oxygen is available to sustain life, the body will extract what it needs from the air and deliver what is needed to the cells. Blood returning to the lungs contains surplus oxygen.
    "Oxygen deficiency" is not an underlying cause of disease.
    Two-ounce bottles of "3%"or "5%" solutions cost about $20 per bottle. Earth Portals also markets a higher-priced "super-oxygenated solution at 25% . . . for serious competitive athletes and individuals looking to get the maximum oxygen into the blood stream." At least a dozen companies have marketed such products.

    The FTC Reacts
    On March 11, 1999, the Federal Trade Commission filed suit charging Rose Creek Health Products, Inc., of Kettle Falls, Washington, its sister corporation (Staff of Life, doing business as R-Garden Internationale), and president Donald L. Smyth with making blatantly false and unsubstantiated health claims for "Vitamin O." [1] The defendants' ads -- which have appeared in USA Today, in other newspapers, and on the Internet -- have claimed that "Vitamin O" can cure or prevent serious diseases such as cancer, heart disease, and lung disease. An National Public Radio report quoted Smyth as saying that his company was selling 50,000 bottles per month [2]. The FTC says that the product appears to be nothing more than salt water.

    The defendants had claimed that "Vitamin O," when taken orally, enriches the bloodstream with supplemental oxygen. The ads state that Vitamin O consists of "intact oxygen molecules in a liquid solution of distilled water, sodium chloride and trace materials."

    The complaint also states that the defendants, through statements and testimonials contained in their ads, falsely represented that "Vitamin O":

    administered orally allows oxygen molecules to be absorbed through the gastrointestinal system
    boosts energy, improves breathing, promotes sound sleep, sharpens concentration and memory,
    prevents and is an effective treatment for life-threatening diseases, including cancer and pulmonary disease
    is an effective treatment or prevention for many other physical ailments, including breathing problems, chronic headaches, infections, colds and flu
    regulates metabolism, aids digestion, relaxes nervous system, and has other beneficial effects on human health
    was developed by Dr. William F. Koch and used by National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) astronauts during NASA space missions.
    On May 3, 1999, a federal judge issued a temporary restraining order requiring Rose Creek and Staff of Life to stop making unsubstantiated claims that ingesting "Vitamin O" or spraying it on the skin can cure or prevent ailments. In addition, personal testimonials must include disclaimers.

    Depite the injunction, R-Garden continued to use testimonials to promote "Vitamin O." A new booklet, accompanied by an order blank dated 7/7/99, contained more than 150 testimonials claiming benefit for asthma, canker sores, chronic bronchitis, cough, diabetic ulcers, ear infections, fatigue, glaucoma, hemorrhoids, arm and shoulder pain, immune weakness, lung emobolism, memory loss, obesity, prostate problems, shingles, and many other problems. One write-up even claimed that the user was able to stop using a breathing machine [3]. The booklet stated that, "as the research continues, and more people use the product, the results will be even more rewarding." Thirty-five of the write-ups are accompanied by a photograph. Each of the 30 pages containing testimonials included the following message in small print:

    DISCLAIMER: These testimonials do not imply results will happen with your use of one of our products. We have no competent or reliable scientific evidence to suggest that the testimonial experience is due to the use of our products. These testimonials are not intended to recommend any supplement as a drug, as a diagnosis for specific illnesses or conditions, nor as a product to eliminate diseases or other medical conditions or complications. We make no medical claims as to the benefits of any of our products to improve medical conditions.

    The FTC's guide to dietary supplement advertising states that advertisements must be truthful, not misleading, and presented so that they are actually understood by consumers [4]. A fine-print disclosure at the bottom of a print ad, for example, is unlikely to be an adequate disclaimer. I believe that R-Garden's booklet was still misleading.

    Settlement Includes $375,000 Penalty
    On May 1, 2000, the FTC announced that Smyth and his companies had signed a consent agreement under which they are prohibited from:

    Making any unsupported representation that "Vitamin O" or any substantially similar product prevents or is an effective treatment for life-threatening diseases, including but not limited to, cancer, cardiovascular disease and pulmonary disease.
    Making any unsupported representation that the effectiveness of "Vitamin O" is established by medical or scientific research or studies.
    Making any untrue representation about the health benefits, performance, efficacy or safety of any other food, drug, or dietary supplement.
    Falsely stating that any academic, scientific, or government organization, or any individual with medical or scientific training, uses, is affiliated with, or otherwise endorses or supports, the defendants' products.
    Deceptively representing that any user testimonial or endorsement of a product represents the typical or ordinary experience of members of the public who use the product.
    Giving their distributors any promotional or marketing materials prohibited by the order.
    Permitting their distributors to make any representations prohibited by the order.
    The defendants are required to notify each of their current and future distributors about the proposed order and to pay $375,000 for consumer redress [5]..

    The FTC has indicated that it is looking at similar claims by other companies.

    I visited a nutrition store here and bodybuilders use this.....i am going to read more from the literature they gave me.......but it was selling like hot cakes

    Oxygen content of air may remain stable, but the amount of oxygen per cubic meter of air will vary with the ambient air pressure. At high altitude, a pilot must lean out the fuel mixture because there is not enough oxygen and if she doesn't, the mixture will be too rich and the engine will not run efficiently.

    This may be why I do not have asthma at sea level, but I do back home in CO. This is why I moved to FL. Of course, Denver's air pollution and dryness also contribute to my astham. Air pollution is especially bad at high altitude because of the lack of oxygen molecules versus the molecules of particulate matter.

    This may also be why weather fronts affect us. Changes in pressure can have wide reaching effects. Pathogens love low-oxygen environments. Some docs are using hyperbaric chambers chambers to help their patients rid their bodies of pathogens.

    If you want to make your body more efficient at utilizing oxygen, go to our library and read Dr. Cheney's article with his breathing exercise. Athletes train at high altitude to make their bodies more efficient at using oxygen.

    Love, Mikie

    and may be very helpful. Please keep us posted.

    BTW, I have no faith in anything the FTC says.

    Has recently made an impact on my daughter`s energy levels and inner sense of well being.
    She`s a happy bunny and it`s nice to see her smiling & laughing again.

    Whatever is in this stuff, it works...

    "Cellfood is a proprietary ionic formula containing dissolved oxygen, electrolytes, 78 trace minerals, 34 metabolic enzymes and 17 amino acids, which provides an unsurpassed oxygen source, and nutrient delivery system to the body".

    It`s not a miracle cure in itself, just an addition to the diet, now she is eating healthy + drinking more water.

    Love Pat.

    they have done things like come into Jonathan Wright MD's offices at gunpoint, burned (yes burned) books about stevia... and Stephen Barrett has recently gotten into trouble - and lost - for filing frivolous lawsuits , apparently trying to make a name for himself.

    Not to mention the many things that have been claimed to be baseless only to find out later they did work.

    I'm not saying there's not charlatans out there looking to make suckers out of us all, but -- we always have to be careful as well about who's doing the 'guarding' and why.

    Just had to comment,

    Another fog free day after taking Kelp...

    I will try the Cellfood......

    An interesting point I thought I'd mention is.....When I was a passenger driving through Colorado up near Vail I suddenly blacked out and was out for about 30 minutes... It was very weird and I attributed it to the pressure and ultimately to my Fibromyalgia.....BUT having read the Cellfood posts maybe it was lack of oxygen.......if so then maybe this is something of importance in Fibro and it certainly encourages me to try the Cellfood.

    I think you have convinced me to give Cellfood a whirl! If you are willing to give this to your child, then I am willing to believe it can't hurt, so maybe it will help!

    Is it the one put out by; 'Industries/Nu Science Corp.? That much I need to know. I have very few health food stores in my area, and they are not always up to the latest stuff, so I usually order by catalog/phone.

    Do not order anything on the net either.

    I went on the internet and found many places selling Cellfood. So far I haven't found any in healthfood stores but now I'll check the healthclubs. Anyway, there are imitators out there. You want the store, on-line or otherwise, that distinctly says it is the product developed by Mr. Storey - forget his first name. There is a little registration mark in a circle beside the name. The websites that include his name have pictures of the bottle it comes in. It is not a pill or powder, it is a liquid in a 1-oz bottle, with a dropper. The prices range as high as $49/bottle but most places charge $21.95. If I can't locate it anywhere around here, I'll be ordering it ASAP!

    The one I use is by the Nu-Science Corp in Lancaster, CA93535,USA.

    I order by post from a health store in London (Nutri-Centre), maybe you can find a major health outlet who can do the same for you. These offer discount of 25% if you spend over £25 + free P&P.

    Shirl, just wanted to say I also took it , I wouldn`t dream of using her alone as a guinea pig.
    It is expensive, and I am no longer on Cellfood, - as I recently had amazing results with Kelp tablets.

    My fatigue without viral/bacterial infections must have been Thyroid/Glandular related, - having been through ongoing stress years previously.
    My fatigue & cognetive problems have improved no end.

    Flaxseed Oil is a must for everyone too. The list of benefits are endless:- - It has cured the restricted movement I had in my left hip. Flaxseed Oil treats arthritis, so maybe i`ve prevented this affliction from getting a hold.

    It`s also an anti-viral/bacterial/fungal/cancer/inflammatory product.

    Love Pat.
