I've been taking Standard Process supplements for 2 years. At first they seemed to help and now I'm not so sure. Instead of my chiro taking me down on the number of supplements I take, she has almost doubled what I take from two years ago and it is very pricey.
I'm also online now trying to find reviews from users. Someone said their Chiropractor does not profit from Standard Process supplements. When I first "googled" my Chiropractor, what came up was:"how to become a millionaire selling our products"! After I brought it to his attention, he changed his page. I am very concerned about the animal parts in all of these supplements, is anyone else?

I was curious about the contents of the substances you are taking, so I went to the Standard Process site. I realize that you are not taking maximum recommended doses of all of these, but here is what I found It contains a little calcium, vitamin C and vitamin B. The manufacturer has apparently found a novel way to use meat byproducts that sound suspiciously like the contents of pet food.

You seem to be offering much advice on the subject. I hope you have a professional degree to support your bold opinions. Regarding your recommendation of dosing of calcium and Vit D which supplement company are you suggesting? How do you know this company is reputable and that their active ingredients are legitimate? You do realize that the supplement industry is not regulated by the FDA so much of what people buy is most likely garbage labeled as a supplement.
Are you also suggesting that eating "organic" is of no value? No one is suggesting that these supplements cure anything. It is only a safe adjunct to try and see if symptoms resolve or reduce. Its much better than being put on a proton pump inhibitor Nexium, etc that will lead to long term nutritional deficiencies and cause more harm than good in the future.
Im sure her doctor was not saying he was going to "cure" her osteoporosis, he was simply trying to give her nutritional advice to help slow the progression of the disease. What a novel concept nutritional advice.Royal S. Leea nonpracticing dentist, founded and operated the Vitamin Products Company, which sold food supplements, and the Lee Foundation for Nutritional Research, which distributed literature on nutrition and health.
The company, still family owned and operated, is now called Standard Process, Inc. Its catalogs have described the ingredients of its products as vitamins, minerals, protein isolates, glandular extracts, organ extracts, dried tissues, plant material, and plant extracts, singly or in various combiunations.
A biographical sketch on the Standard Process Web site described Lee as a prolific inventor who registered more than 70 patents on equipment, processes, internal combustion engines, and food products . He founded Standard Process in and his foundation in During the early s, a shipment of Catalyn was seized by the FDA and destroyed by court order because it had been marketed with false claims of effectiveness against goiter, hardening of the arteries, heart trouble, high blood pressure, insomnia, prostate trouble, and other serious ailments.
The foundation agreed to discontinue the challenged claims. Donsbach, D.Intentional infliction of emotional distress legal definition
InLee and Vitamin Products were convicted of misbranding special dietary products by making false claims for the treatment of more than diseases and conditions. Despite the conviction, Standard Process continued to market its products for the treatment of disease. InSidney Wolfe, M. On the third page of this exhibit, the connection is made between symptoms elicited and vitamin—drugs that should be used.
In addition to these materials, companies also use a catalog. Again, this whole catalog reviews every known condition and prescribes certain cures for the treatment. This catalog is similar to the Standard Process catalog.
Murray in seminar. In the s, I also saw several manuals that practitioners could use to guide their product selection. Some manuals were published by people who hoped to profit from selling them. Other manuals were assembled and distributed free of charge by distributors who expected to benefit from product sales.
None of the materials identified the company as their publisher, but one manual was sent by a regional distributor when I responded to an ad by Standard Process in a chiropractic journal.
All made unsubstantiated claims that would be illegal on product labels, but independent authors generally have First Amendment protection and cannot be prosecuted for what they write. One of the most explicit systems included a item symptom questionnaire  and a page spiral-bound book that listed Standard Process products for each symptom in the questionnaire .
Since the mids, I have seen no evidence that Standard Process is making therapeutic claims directly. Instead, the claims have been made through distributors, lecturers, and publishers rather than directly through company publications. Bruce West, D. Some mailings have contained explicit and illegal therapeutic claims for more than 50 Standard Process products that he was selling.

Seems that law today is as much about choosing the correct venue as the intent of the law.
Choosing the correct judge or correct jury mix can have as much an effect on outcome as whether there is an actual case. Domenic Siracusa27 Jul pm. Computer Bob8 Jul am. Since when is it illegal to resell anything that I legally bought? As long as I don't advertise that I'm an authorized reseller, or say I'm not authorized, what's illegal about it?
Well, you can, but you can't misrepresent yourself as being the manufacturer of the product in question. That seems to be what the judge was saying.
Steve R. A problem that we seem to have today is that corporations are assuming "police powers" and are not constrained by "due process". So if a corporation says you are doing something they define as illegal, you are guilty. No proof necessary. Furthermore, it seems that nothing is actually sold anymore, so you actually never own it.
I guess corporations let us lease stuff so that we won't be burdened by the obligations of ownership. This law basically says that if you sell new hondas and you pick up a new mercedes mercedes can not stop you from selling the car on a website or store they can enforce that you do not use logos.
Is there a right of first sale for goods? I mean, you own it, so how can the producers of the product limit how you choose to dispose of your property? Somebody in the know please let me know.Livaplex is an over-the-counter liver health supplement marketed by Standard Process.

The Fake Supplement Issue No One Is Talking About – Beware of Amazon

And they administered surfactant drugs, which help promote crucial lung development in premature infants. Some neonatal intensive care units NICUs have been giving them to preemies in recent years based on evidence that they can help ward off deadly intestinal disease. Some doctors are concerned about that trend. It was made by a large, seemingly reputable company, marketed specifically for infants and childrenand available at drugstores across the country.
Calvin struggled anyway. His abdomen developed bulges, and surgery revealed that his intestines were overrun by a rare fungus. The infection spread quickly from his gut to his blood vessels, where it caused multiple blockages, and then into his aorta, where it caused a clot. On Oct. Government officials then launched a mournful investigation. Where did the fungus come from? The answer is that the probiotic was contaminated. The FDA tested unopened containers from the same batch of probiotic given to Calvin and discovered the same fungus that had infected his intestines.
Certain lots of the product—ABC Dophilus Powder, made by the supplement manufacturer Solgar—were recalled from pharmacies and drugstores across the U. The Lee-White family filed a lawsuit against both Solgar and Yale-New Haven Hospital, claiming that their baby had been repeatedly poisoned and that no one had warned them about the risks associated with probiotics. The hospital declined to comment for this article.
Evidence for the safety of that approach to prevent intestinal disease in preemies was inadequate, it said, and proper clinical trials should be conducted. The problem stretches well beyond one tainted probiotic. Some doctors are doing the same.

Plaintiff Standard Process, Inc.
It has filed suit against defendant KDealz Ltd. It alleges that KDealz is selling Standard Process products online without authorization. KDealz has moved to dismiss the suit for lack of personal jurisdiction. Because Standard Process has made a prima facie showing of specific personal jurisdiction and because the exercise of jurisdiction does not offend due process, the court will deny KDealz's motion. The court will deny Standard Process's motion for leave to file a surreply, Dkt. The court draws the following facts from the parties' evidentiary submissions and the allegations in Standard Process's amended complaint.
Standard Process is a Wisconsin corporation with a principal place of business in Wisconsin. It makes nutritional supplements, which it sells "exclusively through a network of authorized resellers.
KDealz is a limited liability company owned by Robert Cady. Cady runs KDealz from his home in Kentucky. KDealz operates a "storefront" on Amazon. Through this storefront, KDealz sells nutritional supplements manufactured by Standard Process, even though it is not an authorized reseller.
Here's how. KDealz buys Standard Process products from third-party resellers outside of Wisconsin. It then ships the Standard Process products to Amazon fulfillment centers for storage. At least one of the fulfillment centers is located in Wisconsin.
