A Tale of Two Probiotics

For a long time, I've been wanting
to talk to my readers about probiotics.
The trouble is, this subject is very
troubling to me.

I'll start by saying I do know some things
about probiotics, not just from reading
but from people and places and putting
my hands in strange smelling soils.

I'll tell you about a great guy I met named
Dr. Teruo Higa. Dr. Higa is to probiotics
what Einstein was to physics. Higa is
the mad genius of soils science.

From the website,
"In 1982 Dr. Teruo Higa presented his new discovery to the world.  Dr. Higa called this discovery "Effective Microorganisms".  Since then, the use of Effective Microorganisms® has spread to over 120 countries.  Effective Microorganisms® is a brand name, referring to a proprietary blend of non-pathogenic microorganisms that secrete beneficial compounds for other life.  From this original product, a technology has evolved into what Dr. Higa is known as EM Technology®."

So in a nutshell, Dr. Higa created
a special process of fermentation
utilizing a proprietary "recipe" of live
photosynthitic microorganizms, yeast,
fungus, and lots of stuff I don't know.
When you activate the mixture, and
get this stuff moving and shaking, it
has extraordinarily "magical" effects.
I have experienced them first hand.
Beneficial probiotics.

I'm talking about an Earth Saving
Revolution. Ways of growing plants
and farming that are truly sustainable.
This special sauce is like a finger
of god. As a tornado can naturally
destroy so much, this naturally-
occurring sauce can FORTIFY the
world with the same kind of power.

Dr. Higa is a super-famous rock star
in Asia. He has changed the world and
everyone loves him for it.
He's a cool guy too.

Back in the late 90's, Dr. Higa met
a white boy from Kansas when he
was visiting the EARTH school in
Costa Rica. Dr. Higa and the white boy,
we'll call him Matthew Wood, got
to be friends, and so Dr. Higa shared
some Effective Microorganisms (EM)
with Matt. Matt was able to grow
cucumbers with the EM, and evidently,
cucumbers do not grow in Costa Rica.

Later, Dr. Higa invited Matt back to
Okinawa to study EM and soils science.
Matt worked his way deeply into Dr. Higa's
manufacturing company, EMRO. Matt
learned the whole process and business.
He came back to the States, started a
business with his family's wealth and
power, and began distributing Dr. Higa's
products. And Matt started trying to make
the EM himself.

Something went wrong, but based on
Dr. Higa's enormous popularity, you
can image what went wrong. Matt Wood
and Dr. Higa parted ways. Dr. Higa's
company, EMRO, sued Matt's company
in federal court, but not before Matt
had ripped-off many of Dr. Higa's products
and used his family's enormous resources
to FORTIFY his company against Dr. Higa.

Matthew Wood effectively competes with
his mentor, Dr. Higa-- a man who is loved
the world around. In purchasing terms,
SCD Probiotics are the unscrupulous and
estranged protege of Dr. Higa's EM and
TeraGanix. You could liken Matt's career
to theoretically developing a close friendship
with Colonel Sanders, learning the secret
recipe, and then going balls-to-the-wall
in competition with Kentucky Fried Chicken,
selling nearly identical products in the building
next door.

I will tell you that I love real probiotics
(and most things labeled as such are not).
I've went to Okinawa, had dinner with
Dr. Higa, and immersed myself in EM
for a week. That was in '99, and I've been
using probiotics ever since. The stuff is
amazing, and so is the guy--
Dr. Higa.

Now, when you buy probiotics, look for
live organisms. Look for a process of
activation. And if you can, try to buy them
from the amazing wizard who invented them,
Dr. Teruo Higa. His products are called
Effective Microorganisms (EM)
and TeraGanix.
