This Story Has Changed Our Lives.
The Touchstone Story
This story was written in a Pennsylvania newspaper by medical columnist who had been medical officer in a North Korean prisoner-of-war camp during the Korean conflict.
He found his fellow prisoners developed Beriberi, a disease caused by a deficiency of Vitamin B1.
He obtained Thiamine HCl, a synthetic form of Vitamin B1 like that used in “enriched” flour, from the Red Cross and administered it to the sickest men. No positive change was seen and the men continued to get worse.
The Korean guards suggested rice polish. This is what is taken off the rice during processing and contains the natural source of all B vitamins and co-factors.
He administered rice polish in small amounts, about a teaspoon each day. The Beriberi symptoms abated within a week.
The rice polish contained the whole form of the vitamin. The vitamin molecule and the protein complex or “life force” that occurs with nutrients in the food. The nutrient, in this case vitamin B1, could cross the cell membrane and provide what the cells needed for life sustaining function.

This story explains what is necessary for good health, if we take action.
- Synthetics, fractionated and/or isolates are not complete vitamins and do not provide the critical nutrition needed for proper cell function. (See the Chart Below)
- The truth is that only whole foods or supplements OF whole foods can provide the nutrients we need for proper cellular function and health.
Processed and refined foods have had much of the “good” removed. Enriched foods have synthetic vitamins and minerals added which provide very little if any cellular nutrition and most likely toxic and harmful.
Many reports have been published on the depletion of the critical trace minerals in our soils and the resulting reduction of the nutrient content of our foods. This makes organic whole food supplements necessary to function at your best potential.
What We Did. We eat whole foods as much as possible. We do our best to avoid processed, refined and enriched foods.
Our family has been supplementing our diet with supplements OF whole foods for over 60 months at the time of this writing. For the past 5 winters I experienced the best cold and flu season in decades- no illness. My energy, stamina, alertness and over all well-being have given me the joy of living life to the fullest.
We also use a product to reduce the toxic body burden of heavy metals and chemical toxins.
