At Dose of Nature, our goal is empower people with Nature’s tools, delivered in novel ways to give hope in fighting the chronic and life-threatening problems they are facing. The world is full of newly-released pharmaceuticals that may or may not deliver on their promise. Most of us at one time or another, have taken prescription drugs – drugs that by law must be prescribed by a doctor. If all goes well, the drug works for you as it’s supposed to. But these drugs seem to have absurd side effects, or unintended consequences from taking the drugs. The ads on the TV gloss these over quickly at the end of the ad, but they can be serious. In some cases, the side effects where discovered during FDA trials, but were deemed acceptable risks. Some legal drugs with extreme side effects which are worse than the condition they attempt to address are:
Mirapex for Restless Leg Syndrome
“…hallucinations may occur…”
“…increased gambling, sexual, or other overpowering urges…”
Abilify for Bipolar Disorder
“coma or death…And trouble swallowing.”
ALLI – weight loss aid
“These changes may include gas with oily discharge, an increased number of bowel movements, an urgent need to have them, and an inability to control them.”
ALLI – weight loss aid
- depressed mood, trouble concentrating, sleep problems, crying spells, aggression or agitation, changes in behavior, hallucinations, thoughts of suicide or hurting yourself;
- sudden numbness or weakness, especially on one side of the body;
- blurred vision, sudden and severe headache or pain behind your eyes, sometimes with vomiting;
- hearing problems, hearing loss, or ringing in your ears;
- seizure (convulsions); * severe pain in your upper stomach spreading to your back, nausea and vomiting, fast heart rate;
- loss of appetite, dark urine, clay-colored stools, jaundice (yellowing of the skin or eyes);
- severe diarrhea, rectal bleeding, black, bloody, or tarry stools;
- fever, chills, body aches, flu symptoms, purple spots under your skin, easy bruising or bleeding; or
- joint stiffness, bone pain or fracture.
But hey, at least you don’t have pimples! Obviously, there are pharmaceuticals which work wonderfully, and in fact have been a blessing to humanity. But when you look at the over 4 billion prescriptions written in the US alone each year, you have to wonder if it wouldn’t be better in some cases for people giving a Dose of Nature a chance. By “Dose of Nature”, we don’t merely mean the supplements on our site, but more broadly getting outside, getting fresh air, and being active in nature. With that, we are attempting to bring new, proprietary technologies to bear which will unleash the natural benefits of Natures finest ingredients. People who have chronic and life-threatening diseases typically suffer with compromised GI tract and digestive ability, which can make absorption of nutrients and even drugs very difficult. The task has been how to give people low-dose, oral products which are rapidly and consistently absorbed easily in people in a form which is bioavailable at the cellular functional level. At Dose of Nature, we have two technologies which have shown amazing possibilities to meet these goals, giving us products which are:
Hydrosomes™: analogous to the liposome, this technology takes uniform and truly nano-sized nutrients and embeds them in micro-water clusters, which are absorbed first thing in the stomach, easily absorbed into cells, providing bioavailable and functional nutrients at the cellular level, while providing advanced hydration simultaneously.
BioXTrax™: These take whole herbs and nutrients and bonds them in a concentrated glycerite extraction to make virtually any herb easily digestible and bioavailable in a water soluble form.
The magical thing is that both of these products are water soluble, and therefore you are able to take both macro and nano doses of nutrients and add them to a cup of juice and drink them without the bitter flavors common in herbs.
Dose of Nature is also committed to continuing the research behind these technologies and the supplements we put in them. We believe that many herbs that have shown spotty results in the past could be a function of how the herb was delivered to the body and the condition of the GI tract of the person taking the supplement. In the case of the Hydrosomes™ and BioXTrax™, our supplements are very bioavailable, and we hope to research and test them to breathe new life into old ingredients.
In a world, where those who suffer typically have to go to a doctor or hospital, strip down to a hospital gown with their backside exposed, where getting information from doctors is like pulling teeth, where we are probed, scanned, tested in every way like a TSA screening, we feel powerless and vulnerable, and a mere slave to the system.
Together at Dose of Nature, through sharing information together, our goal is re-empower people with the tools that Nature has provided to take hope and fight the chronic problems and life-threatening problems we all face. We hope you join with us.
