"Another way is to eat oils that actually lower LDL and triglycerides. These oils are known as Omega 3 fish oils, or essential fatty acids. These oils come from cold-water fish like salmon, mackerel, herring, and halibut. The highest degree of heart disease is found in people with the lowest levels of Omega 3 oils. Conversely, you don't hear much about heart disease in Japan because half of their diet is sushi and the other half is steamed vegetables. Omega 3 oils will actually lower blood levels of LDL and triglycerides, reduce platelet aggregation, and lower blood pressure."

"The best kinds of oils to cook with are canola oil, which is the oil highest in monounsaturated fat, and olive oil, which runs a close second but adds flavor and other benefits. Just by cooking with these oils, avoiding shortening and margarine, and limiting the total amount of fat you eat, your blood profile will change. Another way is to eat oils that actually lower LDL and triglycerides. These oils are known as Omega 3 fish oils, or essential fatty acids. These oils come from cold-water fish like salmon, mackerel, herring, and halibut."

"Take vitamin E along with the fish oils to protect yourself from any peroxidized oils in the capsules." Both alcoholics and chronic dieters often have depressive tendencies. Alcoholics often suffer from symptoms of low mood. Although alcohol may appear at first as a stimulant and mood enhancer, it is in fact a depressant and substantially decreases the ability of the body to extract nutrients from the food we eat. Dieters tend to eat very few B-complex-containing foods, and they often suffer from depression as well. Dr."

"Hydrogenation or high heat processing of these oils not only removes all of the nutrients from them, but also makes the oils toxic to our bodies by forming dangerous trans fats or free radicals that damage our cells. Also, essential fatty acids are not recommended for cooking due to their instability and sensitivity to heat. Omega-3 oils should never be heated and should only be added after cooking has been completed. Do I need more Omega 3's in my diet? Yes, the typical American diet consists of too many poor (i.e., refined or hydrogenated) Omega-6's."
- M.D. David Brownstein, The Guide to Healthy Eating (Get the book.)

"Eat adequate omega-3 fatty acids (from fish, nuts, beans, olive oil) or supplement with omega-3 fatty acids by rotating your consumption of fish, flax, and EPA/DHA oils. Rotate these with borage and evening primrose oils that provide a natural blend of omega-3 and omega-6, particularly helpful to hormone balance. • Exercise thirty minutes each day, ideally. • Maintain a normal weight. Cancer and Diet Most people develop cancer from an environmental exposure affecting a genetic tendency. We also know that such genetic tendencies can be improved by the foods we eat."

"Oxygen free radicals can form in refined, polyunsaturated oils and fats once they are exposed to air and sunlight before consumption. The free radicals may also form in the tissues after the oils or fats have been ingested. Polyunsaturated fats are difficult to digest, since they are deprived of their natural bulk and are no longer protected against free radicals by their natural protector, vitamin E, a powerful antioxidant; this important vitamin is being removed during the refining process. Eating a hamburger and French fries, for example, can flood your body with free radicals."

"Avocado (high in heart-healthy oils) • Wheat grass, barley grass and other cereal grass juices • Fish oils, flax oils, macadamia nut oil • Tomatoes (raw only) • Carrots (raw, unpeeled only) • Wheat germ (very high in essential fatty acids) • Molasses (very high in B vitamins) • Beets, radishes (liver cleanser, blood cleanser, raw only) By the way, every fruit or vegetable on this list must be eaten in raw form only. For example, a can of cooked beets or a glass of V8 juice just isn't the same. If it's cooked, it's dead. And it's no longer a superfood."

"There were no seed oils, which we now use to cook French fries, doughnuts, and packaged foods. We have to ask ourselves what happens to our mind and body when our nutritional environment radically changes this way. This level of the soy oils in our diet is unsafe. Recent research has found that homicide mortality in the United Kingdom increased dramatically with the increase in consumption of linoleic acid from soy oil.2 The same thing happened in the United States as well as in Australia, Canada, and Argentina."

"Other anticholesterol foods are polyunsaturated oils (in small amounts only!) and linoleic oils from cold fish (but do not eat shellfish), walnuts, almonds, sunflower seeds, and nut butters. Supplements that Lower Cholesterol_ L-carnosine can help rejuvenate the cell and protect it from prematurely aging, going into apoptosis (programmed cell death), and dying, because it protects the chromosomes. (Note: Do not confuse this substance with L-carnitine, another helpful supplement taken at 1,000 mg a day."

"This includes corn oil in particular and most "vegetable" oils. While corn oil is better in some ways that butter or shortening, it still has a less desirable profile in terms of health promotion when compared to olive, canola, and other nut and seed derived oils, for example. Refined flOUr and its Spawn. Refined is good in people; bad in flour. Refined white flour (enriched, bleached flour) is not just "lacking the fiber" as many people believe, but it has been stripped of nutrients—by some estimates a full 80 to 90 percent of all the micronutrients that were originally there!"

"You can supplement omega-3 fats with fish oils, but fish liver oils also contain significant amounts of vitamin A. Although vitamin A is important, in industrialized societies where people typically have access to good foods, vitamin A is not a limiting nutrient in diets. In addition, your daily multiple vitamin probably contains 100 percent of the DRI of vitamin A, so you want to avoid duplication and possible toxicity. Fish oil supplements have only about 30 percent omega-3 by weight. This means that a 1,000-milligram gelcap of fish oil has only about 300 milligrams of omega-3 fat."

"Use the nutrient density chart below to help you focus your food consumption so you eat larger amounts of raw and cooked vegetables and fresh fruit and less animal products, baked goods, oils and prepared sweets. Whether using the MANDI points or not, as you progress through the four phases of this book, keep the nutrient density chart in your mind. You can even keep it out for an easy, visual reminder of your goals."

"Young's blend of safe, natural antibacterial oils will kill off any germs that might be lingering in your living spaces. Because you can never be too careful during cold and flu season, I also send Wyatt off every day with a few packs of hand wipes. He uses these throughout the school day and during after-school activities. Most health-food retailers offer a selection of essential-oil-based wipes and towelettes."

"There are some oils that you should avoid during pregnancy and others your baby should avoid. Reiki is another great technique for helping both babies and mommies relax. This ancient Japanese healing art uses hands-on touch to reduce stress and promote relaxation. When Wyatt was younger, I taught him a few Reiki techniques that he practices whenever he's feeling fearful, confused, or anxious. Just a little Reiki instruction has helped Wyatt become more centered and relaxed. Turn to the resources section for my recommendations on infant-massage and Reiki books."

"There's nothing in the literature about allergies to oils." "I don't care what the literature says," Anju replied. "She reacts to soybean oil." The doctor sighed, and began to give Anju the condescending Crazy Mom treatment. Because Anju was a physician herself, she was generally spared from that attitude, but she knew all about it, because the mothers of her autistic patients often mentioned it. Their hometown doctors rarely tried to hide the scorn that they felt for the mothers who questioned their conventional approaches. Shortly after that, Anju took Priya to an allergist."

"Avoid foods in cabbage family, refined carbohydrates, dairy, fats and oils. 2. Thyroid hypo-function secondary to anterior pituitary hypo-function: TSH below 2.0, low to normal T3 and T4. Drink only pure water (no tap water or water containing chlorine or fluoride). Increase consumption of fresh fruits and vegetables. Eliminate refined, processed and fast foods. Eliminate hydrogenated fats or oils and all fried foods. 3. Thyroid hypo-function secondary to adrenal cortical hyper-function: TSH below 2.0, normal T3 and T4, potassium levels below 4."

"These oils are high in omega-6 fatty acids compared to omega-3s. Corn oil, for instance, has a ratio of 60 to 1. Safflower has a ratio of 77 to 1. Contributing to the imbalance as well is a typically high intake of processed foods and margarine, which are loaded with omega-6s. According to an illuminating 1997 study from Japan, an unparalleled rise in heart disease, depression, allergies, and autoimmune conditions has taken place since Western-type food, high in omega-6s, has become popular."

"The Pan-Asian Mediterranean diet emphasizes fish for its lean, healthy protein and anti-inflammatory oils. Just by eating the equivalent of a fatty fish meal once a week, according to research at the University of Washington, you ingest enough good fatty acids to reduce your risk by half of developing an initial heart attack compared to individuals who have no dietary intake of EPA and DHA. The right kind of fish (see our recommendations and caveats at the end of the chapter) are rich in EPA and DHA. Lean organic or free-range chicken breasts are okay as well."

"However, if you eat too much saturated fat (as in meat and dairy) or trans fats (hydrogenated and fried oils), your membranes stiffen up and the cell has trouble exchanging nutrients for wastes. Membrane lipids include cholesterol and a fatty substance called phosphatidylcholine (two fatty acids bound to the molecules of phosphorus and choline). We'll refer to it as PC. The health of the membrane also depends on the ratio of PC to cholesterol. Red blood cells with too much cholesterol and not enough PC become rigid and have trouble moving through the capillaries of our microcirculation."

"The body cannot make essential fatty acids, so we must consume them as dietary fats (or oils) in the right balance. They allow for the storage of energy, the absorption of vital nutrients and vitamins, the production of numerous hormones, and the smooth function of the body. Dietary fats come in two basic forms: saturated and unsaturated. Saturated fats are found in meat, poultry, and whole-milk dairy products. We tend to eat too many of them, creating an increased risk for cardiovascular disease."

"If PMS flared, she knew to restart her Chinese herbs, which she referred to as "bitch pills," and she would take vitamin B6 and some omega-3 and omega-6 oils (flax oil and/or evening primrose oil), which also helped her constipation. She had refused to give up her coffee and still ate erratically, but she knew to manage her "angry liver" with lipotropic complex and acupuncture. If her sleep became a problem, she would take some tryptophan (5HTP, 50 to 100 mg) at bedtime or a small dose of melatonin (0.5 mg). She was a woman aware and in control of her symptoms."

"For cooking, it is best to not use butter substitutes, but to use oils, such as olive oil or sunflower oil. Although real butter does contain casein, as well as lactose, they are present in relatively small amounts. Some people who are mildly sensitive to casein or lactose can tolerate real butter, in moderation. Nondairy yogurts, cheeses, and sour cream are available, and some of them are tasty and satisfying. Because individual tastes vary so much, you should experiment with various nondairy products to see which ones your children enjoy."

"Now the consumption of n-3 fatty acids is dwarfed by consumption of n-6 fatty acids, which are found in red meats, and in industrial oils (soya, corn, and sunflower) that are used to make the fried foods, microwave dinners, and snack foods such as chips, fries, cookies, and ice creams that comprise so much of our modern diets. Statistical correlations have been found between dietary intake of trans fats and occurrence of dementia, while polyunsaturated fats and monosaturated fats of vegetable origin appear to be associated with a reduced risk."

"Another question that comes up is about the use of plant preparations such as tinctures, oils, incenses, teas, flower essences, and so forth. While it is true that once a plant spirit lives inside me I know its vibratory essence and can call upon that essence for healing purposes, it is also true that I love to have the plant around in an embodied form. It's like my sweetie lives in my heart and I can call up his essence at any time, feeling what it is like to know his vibration, but I sure like having him around in the flesh. It is the same with your plant allies."

"You might want to store them in the refrigerator to keep oils fresh.) Or keep a can of nuts in the office for an afternoon snack, which may help avoid snacking right before dinner.
