Pestilence – Disease – Infirmity - Death

These are just a few of the terms specialists from around the world are using to describe the potential for apandemic, a worldwide outbreak of H5Ni, the Avian Flu. If not this strain, some other, they say. It's not a matter of if—but when. Although speculation varies, there's one thing everyone agrees with: The indispensable importance of an optimally functioning immune system.

 

Immunity, Health, Longevity, and Life.

These are the things we all value, and they are just a few of the terms we associate with an immune system that works, an immune response that's never late and doesn't misfire, a state of immune-readiness constantly prepared to wage a balanced and accurate defense against bodily intruders like germs that make us sick, bacteria that give us infection, and viruses that kill.

 

It's a hostile world. No matter who we are, where we live, or what we do, the immune system is our first and last line of defense. No matter the money governments around the world spend on pandemic response strategies. No matter the alleged availability or potency of antibiotics. No matter the research dollars pouring into vaccine development. At the end of the day, one question rises above the rest: How strong is your immune system?

Immune System Basics

Your immune system has three primary functions: first to recognize bodily intruders, second to wage an effective attack, and third to remember invaders when they return.

Although this may not be "news," what hasn't been widely reported is that a molecule called transfer factor (TF) is responsible for storing the information our immune system uses to perform these functions.

Transfer Factor = Immune System "Intelligence"

Transfer factor isn't a vitamin, mineral, or herb, but a molecule that forms the core of your immune system's intelligence network by storing information about previous immune system encounters with bacteria, viruses and the like.

 

However, studies indicate that transfer factor does much more than simply "remember" our immune system experiences. It also provides strategic information about how to best handle the pathogens we encounter by stimulating NK (natural killer) cell activity.

 

Similar to the genetic code stored in the DNA molecule, the transfer factor molecule provides your immune system with the information it needs to:

1. Identify a problem,

2. Balance your body's response, and

3. Accelerate positive immune functioning.


 

Transfer Factor Its History, and Why You Haven't Heard About It

While studying Tuberculosis in 1949, Dr. H. Sherwood Lawrence (prior Head of Infectious Diseases and Immunology of New York University, 1959—2000) discovered that he could "transfer" a positive immune response from a recovered donor to a naive recipient, someone who had never encountered tuberculosis.

 

At the time, Lawrence used white blood cells as the source of transfer factor from human donors to lucky patients via intravenous administration. Although transfer factor was hailed as a major discovery by researchers and scientists around the world, penicillin took center stage as Western medicine's panacea, a "cure-all" to sickness and infection.

 

No one can argue the role antibiotics have played in battling disease. At the same time, more professionals than ever are concerned about their effectivenes as germs get smarter. Antibiotics replace the immune system, rather than strengthen it. For this reason, people are looking for alternative ways to support and promote their immune response.

 

Since Lawrence's ground-breaking life work, thousands of scientific studies have explored the effectiveness of the immune system molecule, transfer factor. And over the last twenty years, three major immunological discoveries have revolutionized transfer factor science:

• Sources

In the early days of transfer factor therapy, donors were human, and transfer factor was received via injection. It wasn't until the 1980s that medical science discovered the efficacy and compatibility ofanimal-sourced transfer factor. Today, we know that unlike antibodies, transfer factor is cross-species compatible. This means that its benefit is universal. As a result, we can profit from the transfer factor of animals with heroic (resilient) immune systems.

• Oral Consumption: Delivery

Transfer factor science has come a long way since its intravenous beginning. In the 1980s, it was discovered that transfer factor is orally transmissible, which makes sense because it's passed from mother to child through colostrum, a mother's first milk. A wide range of studies conducted over the past two decades now underscore the efficacy of orally consumed transfer factor.

 

 

• Technology

Scientists have only recently developed the techniques needed to extract and concentrate transfer factor molecules for optimal  potency. For example, although traces of transfer factor exist in colostrum, they must be isolated and purified for ideal results.

Heroic Immune Systems = Potent Transfer Factor

The most potent transfer factor molecules come from "heroic" immune systems that have had previous encounters with a wide range of viral and bacterial strains. Today's scientific community is particularly interested in two sources of transfer factor: one derived from cows, the other from chickens. Cow colostrum contains potent transfer factor designed to prepare the newborn calf for the barnyard's toxic environment.

Similarly, eggs offer another source for harvesting potent transfer factor strains.

Our Daily Need for Transfer factor

Hundreds of thousands of people around the world take transfer factor on a daily basis for increased immune system support. In fact, one report indicates that in China, "more than six million people have used transfer factor as a prophylaxis for hepatitis."

 

Throughout the world, people are discovering that transfer factor offers general immune maintenance for our on-the-go lifestyles. This may be why the popular book, The Cerm Survival Guide, by Dr. Kenneth A. Bock, M.D., et al., lists six Transfer Factor capsules per day as "essential" when traveling.

Reported Benefits of Transfer Factor

Transfer factor is referred to as an "immunocorrector" and reportedly supports immune function in different ways, including the suppression of an over-active immune system for autoimmune disorders as well as the stimulation of normal immune functioning.

 

In May of 2000, Alternative Medicine magazine published an article titled "Educating the Immune" in which DJ. Fletcher writes that "the immune system is one of the miracles of nature, and Transfer Factor (TF), a type of immune therapy, is part of that miracle." Transfer factor, Fletcher states, may contribute to positive immune function for people with "Candida albicans, Epstein-Barr, HIV, and other health conditions, including Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, and Hepatitis."

 

As a "smart molecule" and immune system balancer, transfer factor has proven valuable in helping the immune system suppress unhealthy and potentially destructive levels of inflammation. In fact, transfer factor actually educates your immune
system to what it must know for optimal performance when ever inflammation occurs.

Transfer Factor Science: Breakthrough and Discovery

Countless research articles explore the role transfer factor molecules play in proper immune system functioning, and there have been (and continue to be) substantial efforts to capitalize on this research by securing intellectual rights for transfer factor processes. For example, 4Life Research, LLC, of Sandy, Utah, has conducted numerous scientific studies and has multiple patents.

 

• In one independent NK Cell Study, 4Life's combination of bovine and avian sourced transfer factor dramatically increased natural killer cell activity four hundred thirty-seven percent above baseline.

 

• In October of 2002, 4Life patented methods for "obtaining transfer factor from avian sources" as well as new ways of generating and preparing the non-mammalian transfer factor."

 

• In March of 2005, 4Life patented a process of combining transfer factor "from at least two different types of source animals."

 

4Life Research's CEO, David Lisonbee, has been at the forefront of immune research for more than 12 years. For his contribution to the search for "new natural immunocorrectors, new sources of extraction, and progressive developmental technologies," Lisonbee will be inducted into the Russian Academy of Medical & Technical Sciences and receive the 2006 I.N. Blokhina Award for Bio-Technological Advancement during the last week of February.

 

As noted above, transfer factor is the subject of many publications. In addition to the ones cited earlier, a book, Transfer Factors: Maximize Your Immune IQ, authored by David Lisonbee and Dr. William Hennen, is scheduled for release this March.
The book will address the importance of transfer factor and proper immune system functioning in today's world.

Transfer Factor Today

In 2005, the Bush Administration dedicated 7.1 billion dollars to the development of an emergency pandemic response strategy.

 

No matter how much money is invested in protecting us from an outbreak of avian flu or some other epidemic, the immune system is our first and last line of defense.

 

Its worth is invaluable, because without an immune system, we face pestilence, disease, infirmity and death.

 

Fortunately, scientific research continues to reveal a very promising link between the transfer factor molecule and
optimal immune response.

Bacteria, viruses, junk food, contamination and stress are only a few of the dangers that affect our immune system. The immune system can react too slowly to protect us against invaders like viruses, or could overreact resulting in allergies, inflammations or autoimmune diseases. In these two scenarios you can find almost 90% of the know health conditions.

Even though we have some advances in the immunological medicine, like vaccines or antibiotics, today we are threatened with more chronic health diseases.  The pharmaceutical approach based on discovering the symptoms to provide treatments does not resolve our health problems. At the end, this approach does not deliver the best results since it forget the most important part of the puzzle; The Roots of the health problem.

Unsatisfied with conventional medicine, many look for natural solutions such as herbs, vitamins and antioxidants to increase the immune system.  Even though these nutrients can support our immune system they can’t teach the immune cells to respond to ANY situation encountered. Nutrients only provide momentary support to the immune system.

What if we could not only boost our immune system but also give more intelligence to it? What if you find a Product that provide your system with the tools to work at optimum conditions and help you with almost 90% of known health conditions.

What are transfer factors?

Transfer factors aren’t vitamins, minerals, or herbs—substances that add nutrients to the body. Transfer factors are molecules that actually transfer immune memory and knowledge from one immune system to another.

How does 4Life Transfer Factor support my immune system?

Transfer factors provide intelligence to the immune system in three very important ways:
  • Recognize. Transfer factors help immune cells identify invading germs and other problems more quickly.
  • Respond. Transfer factors help speed up the immune system’s response to an invader after it’s been identified.
  • Remember. Transfer factors lend a hand in remembering the specific makeup of each germ your immune system encounters, so the next time it comes around, your body knows exactly what it is, and what to do.

Salt Lake City, Utah (May 11, 2009) 4Life Research™ announced today the completion of a new preliminary scientific test showing the effect of 4Life Transfer Factor Tri-Factor® Formula on IgA antibody production. Participants took 4Life Transfer Factor Tri-Factor Formula for two weeks, followed by 4Life Transfer Factor RioVida® Tri-Factor Formula for another two weeks. One hundred percent of participants saw an increase in the production rate of salivary secretory IgA when compared to a one-week baseline, with an average increase of 73%.

IgA antibodies, produced by plasma cells, are highly specific proteins used by the immune system to bind and neutralize foreign invaders. IgA bathes the surface of the mucous membranes. These y-shaped proteins bind to invaders, preventing them from attaching and passing through the mucous lining into the tissues and bloodstream of the body.

The test was conducted by 4Life Chief Executive Officer David Lisonbee; Chief Scientific Officer Calvin McCausland, Ph.D.; Health Sciences Advisory Board Member Richard Bennett, Ph.D.; Director of Health Information Services Brent Vaughan; and Research Scientist Shane Lefler.

“I’m proud to be associated with a company that values scientific research so highly,” commented McCausland. “It’s wonderful to provide effective immune system support products that are also backed up by sound scientific studies.”

“I continue to be amazed at 4Life Transfer Factor’s ability to boost and support the immune system,” said Bennett. “This preliminary IgA test suggests another layer of vital immune system protection that 4Life Transfer Factor provides.”

“4Life’s Research and Development team has identified that 4Life Transfer Factor can support another vital component of a healthy immune system—IgA antibodies—once again proving our commitment to stay at the forefront of immune system science,” remarked Lisonbee.

4Life, category creator of Transferceutical™ Science and world leader in the development, production, and distribution of Transfer Factor support products, continues to post growth in more than 40 countries around the world.

History Overview

Since 1900, three pandemics and several "pandemic threats" have occurred.




The New Treats of Swine Influenza in 2009

At this very moment health officials around the world are trying to take precautions without inciting panic from a new possible Swine Flu Outbreak. The Swine influenza, or “swine flu”, is a highly contagious acute respiratory disease of pigs, caused by one of several swine influenza A viruses. Swine influenza viruses are most commonly of the H1N1 subtype, but other subtypes are also circulating in pigs (e.g., H1N2, H3N1, H3N2). In this case, the virus is type H1N1.

The swine flu, that start with first cases in Mexico City,  has spread to several countries around the world. Around 18 countries have officially reported cases of influenza A(H1N1) infection. In addition to the 160 deaths in Mexico City, the virus is believed to have sickened 2,498 people across Mexico. A toddler who succumbed in Texas became the first death outside Mexico.

Is there a human vaccine to protect from swine influenza?

As World Health Organization (WHO) respond in 25 April 2009; 
"No. Influenza viruses change very quickly and the match between the vaccine and the circulating virus is very important to give adequate protective immunity to vaccinated people."......"Current seasonal influenza vaccine produced based on WHO recommendation does not contain swine influenza virus. It is unknown whether the seasonal vaccines can provide any cross protection to ongoing swine influenza virus infection in the United States and Mexico."

What we can do to prevent the virus?

In Addition to all recommendation provided by Health Organizations as wash your hands often with soap and water, cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze, stay home if you get sick......

We can boost our Immune System with Transfer Factors

Transfer Factors are small molecules that all of us have in our blood. Its primary function is to provide the necessary information for proper immune system modulation. Independent studies in USA and Russia validate that the Transfer Factor Plus increase your immune response to unheard of 437%.

The History of Transfer Factors

  


 In 1949, Dr. H. Sherwood Lawrence discovered that when you transfer blood to another person, some of the donor’s immunity is transferred to the receiving person. From this discovery, research began its journey through the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s. Scientists believed they had found that ultimate immune system and health enhancer. They believed that transfer factors would be the ultimate natural medicine. As technology increased, more and more was learned about the benefits of transfer factors. More than 3000 studies were conducted and $40 million (USA) was invested into research. Scientists from more than 60 countries were involved in this research. Two developments stopped this progress. First was the development of antibiotics. Antibiotics were inexpensive to manufacture. They were effective. Antibiotics took the show.

Another development was the contamination of the world’s blood supply by HIV and hepatitis C virus. Up until this time, the only known source of transfer factors was derived from blood. Research stopped in its tracks.

In 1986, two hog scientists discovered that mothers passed down their transfer factors to their babies through the placenta and colostrum in order to give the baby’s immune system a chance to survive a hostile environment of pathogens. These scientists found the cows did the same thing. Often calves will not survive if for some reason they do not receive the colostrum from the mother. Research began to move forward again. Antibiotics still reigned as king in the medical world. Many scientists that worked with transfer factors derived from blood didn’t think transfer factors from colostrum would work, so they didn’t enter the research.

Three events in history changed all of this. First, technology advanced. Secondly, germs began to become resistant to antibiotics. Third, 4Life Research created a large consumer base from which they derived a great deal of information about how transfer factors affected the health and immune systems of more than a million customers. Now research is exploding!

Every year and sometimes every month, something new is discovered about the effectiveness and roles of transfer factors. 4Life Research was the first to bring a line of transfer factor products to the market that contained transfer factors from cow colostrum. Next, their in-house scientists discovered that eggs contained transfer factors and the combination of the two increases their effectiveness by 185%. Transfer factors from colostrum and eggs were found to be actually superior to transfer factors from humans because animals are exposed to many more species of bacteria, viruses and fungi. Animals live in the wild while humans try to keep sterile. Animal transfer factors have hundreds of years of more exposure creating a more functional transfer factor.

TRANSFER FACTORS
Nature’s State-of-the-Art Immune Fortifiers
By Rita Elkins, M.H.

 

About the author: Rita Elkins, M.H., is the author of over 40 health titles, has written numerous magazine and other articles, and has been involved in the writing and production of various health reference materials. Her 15 years of investigating and covering natural health topics have made her a widely respected author. She is a regular contributor to Let’s Live and Great Life Magazines and has hosted radio talk shows on natural health topics. She lectures nationwide on the science behind natural compounds and collaborates with medical doctors on various projects. She recently co-authored Soy Smart Health with the New York Times’ Best Selling author Neil Solomon, MD.


We Need Superb Immune Support

For over ten years, I have had the opportunity to investigate hundreds of natural compounds. I can honestly report that the compound I discuss in this booklet ranks as the most fascinating and promising among the natural "heavyweights." After 3,000 peer-reviewed studies and fifty years of research, transfer factor isolate supplements are finally available to the general public. The review of transfer factors contained in this booklet may be the most important health news you will ever see.

Transfer factor is a term you will undoubtedly be hearing about in your neighborhoods and communities. These factors are creating unprecedented interest in the world of both alternative and conventional therapies.

Transfer factors are not vitamins, minerals, herbs, hormones or drugs. Transfer factors contain nothing foreign, nothing toxic, or nothing counter-productive.

Their health potential is considered by many health experts to be the most exciting discovery in immunology and disease prevention to date. In assessing the enormous value of a transfer factor supplement for you or your family, consider the following questions:

  • Do you get recurring colds and sore throats easily?
  • Do you or other members of your family fight chronic infections?
  • Does cancer run in your family?
  • Would you like to make your family more disease resistant with advanced immune support for life?
  • Would you like to shorten the duration of infections without becoming dependent on antibiotics?
  • Would you like to investigate the possibilities of a supplement so advanced in the way it fights disease that it cannot be classified as a vitamin, herb, mineral or any other compound?

Transfer factors are turning the heads of health professionals everywhere. Why?

The key to future health is to strengthen our immune defenses. Before we do anything else, we need to target immunity. So, before you take a whole host of supplements to enhance your health, begin with immune support.

Dr Richard Bennet, Ph.D., an immunologist and expert in infectious disease, has said, "it’s in our ability to create a really healthy immune system, which I think represents the greatest potential in gains in human health in the world. If we can do something to make us all just a little bit more healthy, there’s going to be less disease and less suffering."

One thing I have learned over the course of my own investigative research is that when it comes to health, we often put the cart before the horse. Clearly, we diminish the value of using alternative treatments to fight off infections after we get sick if we neglect to keep our immune machine in tip top shape when we’re in between illnesses. Whether we will live a healthy or a debilitated life depends solely on the health of our immune system.

Out of all the natural immune builders available, transfer factor holds the most promise. Relatively new to the market, every consumer who wants that extra edge in wellness needs to become familiar with the remarkable properties of transfer factor. It has already exceeded expectations and is clearly ahead of its time.

Transfer Factor Isolate: Immune Booster Extraordinaire
Imagine an immune system alert enough to rapidly detect the presence of threatening infection and eradicate it before it has a chance to do real harm. Transfer factor can make this scenario possible through its superb ability to help develop a strong immune response.
Obtaining a pure transfer factor isolate is now possible through the perfection of a patented extraction process that has been in the works for years. Unlike herbs like echinacea or vitamins and minerals, these factors belong to a completely different category of dietary supplementation – an innovative and novel category.
Researchers at the Conrad D. Stephenson Laboratory for Research in Immunology in Denver, Colorado, who worked with people with immune weaknesses, have stated, "Transfer factors appear to offer a novel means of molecular immunotherapy for certain patients with defective cell-mediated immunity."


The Immune Wars
It is up to each of us individually to take the necessary steps to reinforce our immune system. Immune impairment has become a major concern. The use of compounds like transfer factor can significantly contribute to immune strength, which in turn determines the quality of our health and, ultimately, of our lives.
