Acres U.S.A. is North America's oldest, largest magazine covering eco-agriculture. The only national magazine that offers a comprehensive guide to sustainable agriculture. Drawing on knowledge accumulated in more than 30 years of continuous publication, we bring our readers the latest techniques for growing bountiful, nutritious crops and healthy, vibrant livestock. A glance at any issue is enough to see why sustainable farming—we call it eco-agriculture because it's both ecological and economical—represents the real revolution in scientific food cultivation.
Based on the work of scientists and farmers whose sophisticated approach to agriculture reveals chemical farming as obsolete and misguided, Acres U.S.A. shows its readers how to embrace the science of nature. Rather than batter nature into submission with bizarre chemistry that short-circuits natural processes, sustainable farmers feed the soil and bring it into balance. They gently coax nature into yielding her bounty, and they are rewarded with superior crops and lower input costs. Acres U.S.A. has helped thousands of farmers feed the nation's growing appetite for clean, delicious food and make a profit while they're at it. Farmers who practice eco-agriculture don't need enormous bank loans to float the cost of expensive chemical inputs and excessively complex equipment.

Safe, healthy, delicious fish: Eco Fish. It is vitally important to avoid farmed fish. This practice can damage the environment, alter the natural fish stocks around the world, and fish raised at these "factory farms" are sickly and have bad Omega-3 ratio's (the good fat). In addition, most farmed salmon is artificially colored, something the establishment has been hiding from us for years. Read more about it here: Fish Farm Flap. Eco Fish tastes great and is economical.

Rebounders are mini-trampolines that you exercise on. Kids are naturally drawn to them and adults will find they offer tremendous health benefits. Rebounding can help reverse the effects of gravity on our body, reverse lymph system stagnation, boost the immune system, help digestion, circulation and even the colon.
Dr. Olarsch has been recommending one particular brand of rebounders for many years: the Needak. Most rebounders are cheap imitations that fall apart and have much spring action, potentially causing harm to the neck, spine and organs. Needak rebounders are made in the USA, use Permatron mats, have the best warranty in the industry and exclusively have the Needak Soft-Bounce springs.
Needak's website has great information on the many benefits of rebounding. This is a highly recommended exercise by Dr. Olarsch and a wonderful simple way to stay healthy, even in the winter, even indoors! The Needak rebounder is small enough to fit under most beds. You can jump on them, jog on them, do the twist, jumping jacks, knee lifts and many more exercises demonstrated on the video and in books. The bottom line: this is something every household should have. Dr. Olarsch has one at home and one at the office!
We have arranged for you to get these through our office. You may call us or Needak (800-232-5762) to have it delivered to your home. We recommend the model #RO2. If you get it from Needak, please mention our account #23392 and "Affiliate Program" so that we will get credit for the sale. Thanks, and happy rebounding!
