I just received some pretty amazing studies on the Corona virus, which were conducted before the outbreak. (Thanks to Dr. Jeff Matheson for sending these over).

A bit technical, but hang in for the punchline, which is pretty straightforward.

The first study is called: “Characterization of the Lipidomic Profile of Human Coronavirus-Infected Cells: Implications for Lipid Metabolism Remodeling upon Coronavirus Replication.”1.

And the other is: “Inactivation of Enveloped Viruses and Killing of Cells by Fatty Acids.”2

There’s a lot in there, but there’s a couple highlights:

“Enveloped viruses like the Corona Virus are susceptible to inactivation and destruction by certain fatty acids.”

“Antiviral fatty acids were found to affect the viral envelope, causing leakage and at higher concentrations, a complete disintegration of the envelope and the viral particles. They also caused disintegration of the plasma membranes of tissue culture cells resulting in cell lysis and death….”

“Supplementation of LA [Parent omega-6] / AA [omega-6 series long-chain derivative] significantly suppressed both HCoV-229E (which can impair the respiratory system), and also significantly suppressed the highly virulent MERS-CoV described above. They can be metabolized to important eicosanoids and metabolites, which play multiple roles in the host immune response and the pathogenesis of viral infections.”

So, the long and short of this is that while we are all protecting the OUTSIDE of our bodies, we can be protecting the inside by significantly raising our intake of high quality Omegas, especially healthy sources of Omega 6:

-Hemp seeds
-Sunflower seeds
-Peanut butter
-Avocado oil

These foods should be eaten daily for best effect. Image of pure form omegas

In addition, because our diets are not perfect, and the foods we eat are often processed and less nutrient dense than we would like, I recommend Pureform Omegas

The tagline “Time to Change Your Oil” is absolutely spot on, as these plant based omegas kick butt on the (often rancid) fish oils that are so popular, but unfortunately, highly inefficient and our bodies are not adapted to utilize them. 

Learn about the power of plant based Omegas here, and try to get more of the foods listed, to not only protect yourself now, but to improve your cell health and immune system permanently!

The Great Mimi’s Miracle Silver Giveaway.

During this outbreak, we are providing our customers with a free bottle of Mimi’s Miracle Silver with every purchase. Colloidal silver has several uses:

-Spray on your dog or cat after a stranger pets it!

-Spray on surfaces such as door handles, steering wheels, etc before you touchmimi's miracle silver image

Now, we are not in any way suggesting that this will treat, prevent, or cure a disease. But it can be an effective part of your strategy based on the scientific findings.

The Sciency Stuff.

Several studies published on the government site PubMed show really interesting findings regarding silver.

In this one, Metal nanoparticles: The protective nanoshield against virus infection.

The abstract says: “Among metal nanoparticles, silver nanoparticles have strong antibacterial, antifungal and antiviral potential to boost the host immunity against pathogen attack.”

In this one, “Antibacterial Activity of Silver Nanoparticles: Structural Effects.” They state: “The increase of antibiotic resistance in bacteria has become a major concern for successful diagnosis and treatment of infectious diseases. Over the past few decades, significant progress has been achieved on the development of nanotechnology-based medicines for combating multidrug resistance in microorganisms. Among this, silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) hold great promise in addressing this challenge due to their broad-spectrum and robust antimicrobial properties.”

And this one is interesting. A Hong Kong strain of Influenza A was obtained and researchers tested a Colloidal Silver spray (manufactured by the exact same plant that makes ours) and found that, “Silver Zinc throat spray demonstrated a >99.99997% reduction in the stock virus titer following a 15 minute exposure time.”

So, for the next few weeks, or until stock runs out, we are providing a FREE Mimi’s Miracle Silver with EVERY purchase, regardless of size, made at

Limitations: We can only ship this product within the continental United States.
Offer will end when we run out of bottles, or until the current situation is restored to some semblance of sanity and reality.

Again, we are not claiming that this will treat, prevent, or cure disease. We are providing it as a service to our customers to add to the other recommendations made by the CDC and other experts in the pandemic field.

Fish oil may not be all it’s cracked up to be. As a matter of fact, fish based omegas may not even be something our bodies are evolutionarily adapted to, and it’s probably time to “change your oil” to a plant based alternative.

Get the skinny on Omega 3, 6 and 9, and how you can improve your health, reduce pain, and get rid of inflammation through correct omega supplementation.

Pure Life Science‘s Medical Director, and Co-Founder, Dr. Jeff Matheson obtained an HBSc (Biochem) degree from the University of Western Ontario, followed by his MDCM Degree (Doctor of Medicine, Master of Surgery) from McGill University in 1991.

And all of his training and medical expertise have shown him that getting enough omegas, in the right form, can make a world of difference in a persons health.

There seems to be a war between traditional and faith based modalities like Acupuncture, and the AMA style acute care industry.

Yet neither modality offers perfect solutions, and Integrative Medicine is booming as these two fields start to understand each other better.

Chances are, you have strong opinions one way or the other. But listen in to this forthright conversation to see if some of your own beliefs aren’t challenged, and hopefully improved, from this conversation. With Dr. Joe Kepo’o.

Dawn Phillips describes herself as “Carrot-pusher, voracious reader of health literature, refugee from the tech world, and nice person.” She is at the cutting edge of Integrative Medicine. As a Nutrition Therapy Practitioner she works directly with a medical doctor to provide natural healing methods to compliment the AMA style healthcare he offers.

Dawn is a holistic nutritionist who works with sugar-holics, vegan dropouts, and the “dietarily confused.” She believes that most chronic health conditions can be remediated or reversed by increasing nutrient density and by reducing toxins.

Through this integrative approach patients receive less drugs and more nutritional and fitness guidance, something many of us in the nutrition and fitness industry have been looking for for years.

Listen in to pick up great ideas to improve your own health and wellness, deal with inflammation, and avoid potential health pitfalls.
