October blog

While 2020 known as the Corona year is coming to an end, and it is likely to infect 2021 seamlessly, we will have to learn to accept one worrying fact: things will most likely ‘never return to normal‘. The sooner we accept that, the better according to American specialist virologists on CNN… Too much is not known, except that Covid-19 is certainly an incalculable and dangerous disease. Yes, the vaccine will work, but nobody knows to what extent and for how long we will be protected, especially now that all sorts of peculiar phenomena are occurring. The defence (immune response) in the event of a viral infection is based on the innate and acquired immunity. (We already explained this mechanism in the youngsters’ disease. See brochure page 22 – https://comed.be/wp-content/uploads/2020/04/BROCHURE-nederlands-nieuwe-schema-20200420.pdf). 

 

Congenital immunity works quickly but incompletely because it is not specific enough. In other words, the body does not yet know the intruder sufficiently. The acquired immune response occurs systematically and more slowly, and then takes a few days to eliminate the virus after a few days using, among others, B- and T-cells in the bloodstream, wherever necessary. This achieved plan is also stored in the immune memory, to be able to react very quickly at a later stage in the event of a new infection. Dutch researchers recently discovered the presence of these T-cells in the brain tissue of deceased patients (with mainly loss of taste and smell), where they do not usually belong.It appears the Covid-19 virus destroyed the immune system of these victims too quickly and due to the late adequate immune response, regardless of where in the body considerable damage was already done to scar tissue after blood clots due to the exaggerated resistance of their defences (cytokines). A bit like after a terrorist attack, you see massive emergency services at the scene of the disaster gathering together. At the same time, when half an hour earlier, when it was vital, only a lightly-armed police officer heard a bang, could at most fire a few shots and then inform the colleagues afterwards.

Covid-19, it isn’t easy to unlock its secrets.

Why do some patients get the full coverage and others do not, such as the presence of interferon type I.

 

I fear that November will be the month of the truth.

 

 

In addition to the standard basic rules, let’s live stress-free in well-ventilated rooms and limit alcohol consumption (especially in groups).

The testimonies of the Covid-19 patients who are seriously damaged for life and who used to be top fit should encourage everyone to behave in a much more responsible way.

There is speculation that nature, through certain animal species, is taking revenge on the intrusive man who takes over the entire available environment and shamelessly besmirches it.

Indeed, humankind, based on a 4.5 billion-year-old dream planet, is in the process of irreparably destroying this pearl in a few generations as an arrogant schlemiel. As a result, Comed resolutely opts for pure nature care with Stopmite as an example. The pigeon is one of the oldest species of birds, and the interconnection with nature since its (dino) ancestors is exceptionally captivating.

 

It is known that some birds regularly introduce fresh green plants into their nests because of the insect repellent effect of the volatile oils they contain. Based on this simple logic, we developed Stopmite, to offer a safe parasite agent that you can also administer through the feed. Parasites small and large have been on the earth for millions of years and are intending and able to stay there. Because of their short reproductive cycle, their numbers can sometimes increase explosively by taking advantage of favourable environmental factors, and over the centuries people have therefore correctly spoken of ” plagues ” that regularly emerge. Parasites can adapt quite quickly, which makes their mitigation difficult, and their extinction almost impossible.

Cockroaches even survive nuclear radiation.

Suppose a world war using nuclear weapons breaks out, and it destroys everything and everyone. In that case, cockroaches (and possibly some bacteria or viruses) will still be crawling on this globe, as the sole representatives of biological life in the universe.

 

In East Africa today, there has been an enormous harvest devouring grasshopper plague for some time. Still, blood lice are also permanently and relatively imperceptibly responsible for considerable losses in the poultry sector.

Our pigeons are not spared either.

 

In addition to the efficient Stopmite, completed with Comed Comfort Spray, numerous home remedies have been described with varying degrees of success, all the more now that they question the safety of the chemical anti-parasitic agents.

There is a growing desire on the part of the public authorities to get rid of these chemicals because of their health risks, which usually only appear after several generations.

Mass contact with chemicals – most of them with a vague GRAS (generally recognized as safe) status – has led to the detection of many more cancers than in the past.

Fortunately, the improved (chemo!) treatments result in fewer or later deaths, but the victims invariably remain with two burning questions:

1 Why did I get it?

2 Will I still get it back?

 

These are all reasons to renounce the chemical mass treatments and definitively take the path of nature.

 

The chemical industry, which also brought us many benefits (e.g. life-saving medicines), is put on hold in this respect.

 

In addition to the parasite repellent effect (both through the feed and through scattering on the floor), Stopmite also has a broad general action with several different beneficial results. Thus our pigeons remain in shape against the negative influence of the attacking parasites.

 

Minerals that have been in the ground for millions of years… 

The mineral clay not only binds the water but also the ammonia (a decomposition product of protein digestion) in the manure, which is toxic to the intestinal wall, thus it remains healthy and at the same time the living surface is detoxified, so that leg injuries hardly happen anymore.

Other mineral substances contain microscopic fossil blades which interrupt the parasite’s reproductive cycle.

 

 

The vegetable fibres in Stopmite also support the protein-digesting (proteolytic) enzymes (pepsin, trypsin, chymotrypsin, …) that are active in the gizzard, pancreas and small intestine, resulting in an overall improved absorption of the proteins from the diet. 

 

 

 

This has an essential role in the development of the youngsters and their post-flight recovery.

 

 

The selected aromatic plant oils have a remarkable effect which has been proven by numerous studies. These phytogenic additives are considered to be a safe alternative to antibiotics in poultry farming, for example. Their use has thus resulted in an improvement in the durability of feed materials and a series of positive impacts on health and performance through their antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects. Stopmite has a unique composition of ingredients with a broad, biologically exciting action. When administered daily, it plays an essential role in the defence against disease in general.

 

From now on, Comed will gradually be changing the packaging.

The white-black cubes symbolise good and bad, and we must have the courage to choose unambiguously. Comed made a clear choice not to adopt the smearing chemical approach. The background, therefore, became white, symbolising from now on, that we are uncompromising in our choice for purity and transparency in everything.

Moulting       

Overall, it’s been good.

Despite the sinister start caused by the Corona measures, the season could still be saved.
It is September, the light diminishes, the days are shortened, the leaves fall off the trees, and the moulting has started.

Fortunately, we have the pigeon sport to forget the Corona misery. A pigeon fancier is a happy person when he has to /may stay more at home with his pigeons… right?

Everyone had their own strategy to deal with this, considering the postponed racing plan, in other words, a competition postponed to autumn…

With the extreme heat, many had to take extra care of the heads. At the high temperatures, the body has to be cooled down, which costs proportionally per degree twice as much energy as warming up.

This weakens the pigeons and the Coryza virus strikes. (That’s why we administer Curol and Myobol, of course together with frequently adjusted eye drops like Lysocur.)

We should not forget for a moment that the moulting is not entirely over until after 5-6 months.

Pens and feathers wear out through use and cannot be repaired,

That is why our pigeons are logically replacing them with new ones.

The best time for this is when nature rests…

The wing is an essential part for those who travel in the air.

Compare it to the maintenance of an aircraft where vital parts have to be replaced after a certain number of flight hours, worn out or not… this is considered very serious.

Numerous papers have already been written about moulting.

Especially about the food in which we have a choice.

Indeed, reputable feed manufacturers all offer concrete mixes.

Two themes are central during the moult.

– The preservation of warmth if well insulated (both during the change of costume and afterwards).

– The material for the creation of the new plumage.

In addition to the right feed, there are still essential accents to be placed where the additional supplements can make a difference.

Fat (oil) is responsible for the critical supply of calories regarding heat regulation.

The essential amino acids are indispensable building blocks for the (re)construction of the new plumage.

These are the foundations on which the Comed supplements are based.

Good care and impeccable health are essential throughout this period, which continues until the spring of next year.

 

Curol and Winmix with Murium provide this, possibly supplemented with Roni, Myobol, Stopmite and Clean Oral.

 

Curol plays a role in the prevention of possible sleeping diseases, which will inevitably lead to problematic moulting.

Stopmite contributes to a parasite-free plumage.

The essential amino acids are indispensable (otherwise we would not call them essential…) hence Murium.

So even in winter, adapted supplementary feed requires all our attention, we will lay the foundation for the next season with it.

In other words, you have to provide the Comed moulting system neatly, all winter long, or half a dose in the middle of winter…

Good luck

About star psychiatrists, the East and the West

The mental health of our society is significantly deteriorating.

Every year in Belgium, there are almost 1.000 suicides.

“NRC Handelsblad” interviewed three Belgian psychiatrists Dirk De Wachter, Damian Denys and Paul Verhaeghe about their profession and their enormous popularity in the Netherlands, where they attract crowded rooms, especially among young people.

There is an unseen shortage of psychiatrists, and thus there is considerable interest in this kind of analysis of the mind, which they perform in the form of a sermon, warning and consolation.

 

 

 

The Flemish psychiatrists are clear: There is a ‘crisis in meaning’ among the population. Too much attention to ego and success derives from the real source of meaning: The other.

They say that deep happiness, real sense, never comes from yourself, but from connection to and happiness of others around you”. “Put the smartphone away and look at each other in the eye,” says Dr De Wachter. Dr Denys believes that war is needed to achieve an attitude change, to let people abandon their individualism and their narcissistic aspirations for unattainable ideals. We have more and more ZZP’ers (=lone self-employed people). By being flexible, they strive for personal success, often without connectedness. That leaves traces in heart and reason. They want solutions to this, but unfortunately, life means suffering, and we must accept it more. We must replace this constant pursuit of perfection with the quest for acceptance.But at this time there are only winners and losers. The average is gone. What does the winner gain from his trophy if his efforts have led him to lose his wife and his children are alienated from him?The social fabric, which we need to give meaning to life, has diminished. We need to look for higher common goals such as, e.g. the climate, which can bring us closer together. Pigeon sport certainly has a connecting factor. The cooperative association with animals in a sporting context not only teaches to keep the mind sharp, but there is also collegiality and healthy competition. There are also, of course, disputes and envy. The passion for pigeon sport is experienced internationally, including Facebook and Instagram, and that broadens the mind. It is an environment where you can reset after every season: You go to the championship celebrations, to the fairs. The competitions must be organized. The encounters are a healthy mix of connectedness through a very complex but also exciting sport. You are making new plans etc…, learn from your setbacks and the evolution in your game from the advancing insight. You are enjoying the results of your pigeons with another. You are dreaming, the illusion and the relativization.

Comed, as a developer and producer, also knew a significant evolution. We have been continuously evolving for several decades and have renewed continually, both through the adaptation of existing products and the development of new ones. The offer has, therefore, become very extensive. We are currently investigating whether we can simplify this by merging certain products.  Our higher common goal is to take part in pigeon sport on a fundamental basis, without squandering the precious antibiotics that protect our body and members in times of need.
We want to do this excellent task together with everyone who is very keen on pigeon sport and public health. Every fancier who wants to be part of this mission is welcome to work with our team to make every possible improvement. Any information or suggestion from the grassroots is very welcome.

For example, we want to replace the elaborate user scheme, which attempted over the years to include all variables, by a simple system with only two options.
Below is a brief description:

 

BASIS

 The classic Western system  with, since years, at the basis the very reliable couple

   Curol fuel, defence against disease

   Winmix  total supplement

We cannot, however, overlook the massive rise in Chinese pigeon sport.

 

 

That is where the emphasis is entirely put on the young pigeon competition. That’s why Comed developed a pair of products equivalent to Curol and Winmix with the focus on rapid development (of the muscles) and particularly in the outcome on the youngsters (Chinese system). It concerns Myobol and Lysocur Forte.

 

 

 

The development of the racing pigeon must be done quickly, without any hesitation or downfall of any kind and this from 0 to 600 km. China has become such a valuable player that we can now successfully offer a perfect solution to their specific problems. This solution also fits wonderfully in our western game with the young pigeon, a lot of attention to the defence against young pigeon disease.

One can conclude that with Myobol, the chick is significantly weaned earlier (about six days!)! An affluent muscle mass and the skin oil on the pins of the early feathered fall immediately upon.

To eat independently in a previous phase is a crucial factor and has a significant advantage. When feeding the crop milk, infections are inevitably transmitted by the parents. They already have a highly developed immune system, while the youngsters are still developing their system. Given the package that is included from birth and used day after day, it is always possible to have a temporary immunity gap. Myobol  produces young pigeons, which immediately show their full potential, which you did not suspect they had!

      Lysocur Forte was transformed into a complete supplement (vitamins, amino acids, prebiotics, etc.) and on the other hand, it plays a major role in the defence against disease.

 

Besides, these two products can still provide strength and recovery in all disciplines (yearlings and old ones).

 

                                            BREEDING –  AND FLYING SEASON

Important during both breeding and competition are

Fertibol fertility, eggs and skeleton; 

Roni plays a role in the resistance to diseases (bowel).

 

                                                                  SANITARY

 

The best standard sanitary care throughout the year:

Stopmite parasites (healthy and odor-free air in the loft);

Clean Oral clean water bowls.

 

Schematic summary:

 

 

  • In both systems  –  you administer daily (all products) during the whole period on the feed (1 tablespoon/kg).

  • In the Chinese method, additional oil (Comedol or Allium ) must be added, enough to allow the powders to stick.

  • Clean Oral always goes through the drinking water as well as the bath water (1-5 ml/litre).

  • The water-soluble products Roni, Lysocur can alsobe administerd through the drinking water separately  (1 tablespoon/kg).

WHER CAN I BUY IT!
Pigeon and bird enthusiasts have seen a huge increase in the supply of all kinds of care products in recent years, which often have only a limited shelf life in terms of food, making it difficult for the stores to manage their stocks in a more understandable way.

Comed likes to work with the stores, but if they do not all have Comed products in stock, you can always order them directly from Comed in urgent cases.

You can also come and collect directly. Shipping both in Belgium, and to European and non-European countries can even be free from a certain purchase amount.

Lysocur Forte 3.0

 

After 40 years of tirelessly research to find the golden grail of the care for racing pigeons, we establish, with great pleasure and against all expectations, that the list of potentially active substances we encounter keeps extending.

In the search for the connection between disease and nutrition -the professional area of Comed- we increasingly come to the conclusion that the paths of medicine and nutrition combine.

The legislator proposes, as a rule of the game, that there must be a clear separation between foodstuffs and medicines when selling.

We have to deal with both concepts very carefully, and the consumer must not be misled.

Thus the food industry bears an important responsibility regarding public health.

We cannot fail to see that the food industry is deliberately making millions of victims, and in which economic interests often stand in the way of healthy food.

Look around you and determine how many people are struggling with overweight.

85% of diabetics are overweight, and the disease is taking epidemic proportions.

1 million Belgians and 1.2 million Dutchmen suffer from diabetes.

1 in 3 adults gets diabetes!!

Do they put the finger on the problem?

From childhood, the taste buds are skilfully manipulated, and once they run wild, their owners have adopted life-long dangerous food habits, opposite a very slender-line-culture is running:

Behind both opposing currents, there is a billion-dollar industry. ..

The famous Greek physician Hippocrates presented more than 2000 years ago in his writings: “De alimento” on nutrition: ” In food excellent medication, in food bad medication, bad and good relatively. ”

                                                                                                                                                                                                          Hippocrates.

You could interpret this as food can make you healthy, and food can make you sick; the effect may vary by case.

Fortunately, our pigeon-feeding industry offers top quality, and we have a wide range of good food.

It is up to the fancier to bet this right.

Here, too, it often goes wrong.

During the breeding and the competition period, a lot of protein and a lot of calcium (grit) are naturally fed.

This is inherent in the pigeon racing sport, they really need to perform, it’s not a matter of.

However, both day-to-day habits diminish, each in their own way, the acid in the intestine which is crucial and also a protection against infections…

This means that the fancier must permanently struggle against infections, which he causes unconsciously.

Over almost 40 years Comed is engaged with smart supplements, and meanwhile, the fancier knew how to appreciate them.

A striking example of this is Fertibol an acidic source of calcium.

More and more fanciers replace the acid neutralising grit by Fertibol.

In turn, Roni compensates the disadvantage of protein-rich food.

Meanwhile, Comed has given the appraised airways product Lysocur Forte an extensive upgrade. Its field of application on the airways was extended to the intestine.

It has actually become a total remedy that treats abovementioned nutritional disadvantages and is therefore enriched with specific supplements.

Due to its solubility in water, it meets the legitimate demand of many fanciers who would like to administer through drinking water.

It was a chore to get all this in a bottle, i.e. to solve in the water…

Our classic primary care is mainly administered through the feed, adhered to by oil: Curol, Comedol, Stopmite etc…

However, the disadvantage is that when a pigeon is in less shape (poorly digested, one or another germ incubates), it often eats less and drinks more.

The support they need is logically best through the drink.

Especially the specific problems with the youngsters, always involve their growth.

To develop an adult body, they really get everything out of their diet during their first year of life.

At the slightest hitch they are in trouble, because they have hardly any reserves.

That is normal, nature has provided it so, but that implies -certainly during the competition- that no valuable time can be lost if something is wrong.

An immediate intervention is needed, and it should be effective right away, which is more obvious via drinking water.

The renewed Lysocur Forte can be perfectly combined with Curol and both complement each other in case of serious problems.

Lysocur Forte 1 L will be sold at €29 incl.

El condor pasa

The Incas from the Andes Mountains of Peru showed in their buildings the most astonishing potential of human geometric ingenuity.

The enormous boulders used in Machu Picchu came from the other side of the valley across the wild river, in the most steeply populated country in the world with the sharpest slopes in high mountains.

Machu Pichu

 

 

The perfectly matching granite monoliths colossi, up to 300 tonnes, sometimes 5 meters high, are seamlessly ingeniously

made in a multi-connection and you cannot get a razor blade in between.

This made the whole “earthquake resistant.”

 

I was always fascinated by the fact that until today nobody understands how they proceeded correctly.

I became more and more intrigued, and when I thought of the limited resources they had available, I was just nervous: they knew nor the wheel, nor the iron, nor the written language.

At most, they had a llama as an extra workforce. When you put a 50-kilo load on it, he drops down to the knees in the mud.

Large complex structures -although created by human hands- made a tremendous impression. Thus they often gave a divine dimension to it.

Many of the buildings have disappeared because the conquistadores cut their blocks into cubic stones, mainly to build their churches with them.

It is quite clear that the conquistadores have never been able to figure out how the Incas were working.

They must have refused to learn how to work their raw stone. It simply cannot be possible, that the Spaniards, if they had known, never mentioned this.

Have the Incas taken their secret architecture into their graves?

Especially the llamas and the sheep are inextricably linked to the Andes.

The condor, the giant vulture, has also been part of it for thousands of years.

It has a wingspan of more than 3 m weighs 15 kg and can eat up to 10 kg at once.

It breeds every two years and lives mainly of carcasses whose decaying scent can be smelled up to 200 km from his nest!

Rather exceptionally he hunts sheep.

 

The Incas from the Andes had to keep up with the sheep herds.

They bred them because of the wool, the milk and the flesh.

In the last century, the shepherds were increasingly annoyed by the condors that were attracted by the large herds, and they supplied their hatches rather exceptional with a stolen lamb.

Although this was rare, the shepherds decided to shoot the condors without mercy.

After a few decades, however, the sheep had also disappeared with the condors.

These were extinct because of all kinds of strange diseases.

Pretty soon a clever biologist had found the link.

The condor always grabbed the weaker sheep from the herd.

He was thus involved in a strong breed with good resistance to diseases.

When the condor was eliminated as a scavenger of the weak genes, the weak sheep were able to propagate with the result that after a few generations, the oats had outbreaks of diseases against which no remedy existed.

Now that the condor is allowed to go its course, he helps to eliminate the genes of these weak sheep and thus to maintain the population.

The moral of this story is that nature has to go its course.

 

It’s not smart to keep everything alive.

Give the best natural products to your pigeons, and what about those who do not survive?

Leave them behind.

The weaklings and suckers will cost you a multitude of misery in the long run.

It is a small example of Darwin’s law: The survival of the fittest.

Comed bases his vision on these sober principles and delivers an urgent message: break with the negative past by ceasing preventive work with antibiotics and building the positive future with Curol, Winmix, Roni, Stopmite Clean Etc.

We practise the sport with healthy animals, not with sick animals.

It’s the logic itself.

Honestly, man is allowed to take the animal out of its natural environment and practise a sport with it, provided that we do not make it sick.

Of course, “the sport” influences health: cockfights, bullfighting, are extreme examples.

But also the colouring of birds, unloading pigeons in bad weather.

By interfering with their way of life, human beings charge their health.

Already 40 years, Comed focuses specifically on tackling this problem.

The solution is the COMED METHOD. (No systematic treatment with antibiotics for infections in the illusion that they could sustainably improve sports performance).

Without antibiotics, with Curol, Winmix and Roni etc. even gives a better result.

The pigeon fanciers are always looking for a “strong product”.

Sometimes one doesn’t look so tightly… three-in-one, four-in-one, five antibiotics-in-one mixes were examples of a perverse habit.

For decades Comed has constantly been warning for his in all their lectures and leaflets…

Do we want to be the generation with a dubious reputation, who manages to discover the antibiotics and then, in a few decades, squanders it in purely pointless and stupid use?

Or… do we want to be the generation that turned the tide, predetermining the health of our children with a sense of responsibility?

Which products?

No other choice is possible now.

No nostalgic folk medicine of herbs. Often leading to sometimes dangerous quackery.

No simplistic bio-approach, there must be sufficient effect.

High-tech orthomolecular nutrition and scientifically approached aromatherapy.

We leave behind those animals which cannot survive.

The survival of the fittest” in the footsteps of Charles Darwin.

We have to select because, for practical reasons, the sports and hobby husbandry of animals cannot keep an entire breed.

Comed is a pronounced searching laboratory.

All formulas are constantly refined, often without much publicity.

Willem de Bruijn was more than ten years ago the early decision maker.

As a medical professional (dentist) he struggled with the irrational use of antibiotics for years.

It led year after year to staggering results.

Comed products are the minimum of non-medicated aid that you should give an animal when you take it out of its biotope and thereby charge for possible health consequences.

The end of the therapeutic tenacity is in sight. Often, improbable treatments were applied, antibiotic cocktails should be called into question on how it could be that the poor animals were still performing, despite the almost intoxication with antibiotics… This caused turmoil in the pigeon sports world. The result with the COMED METHOD: not just as well, but even better without antibiotics.

Follow the COMED METHOD or get hopelessly behind…!!!
