"He was the first to prove that electrons travel in discrete orbits around an atom's nucleus and that the the chemical properties of every element are largely determined by the number of electrons in each of these orbits. His extensive work on the Copenhagen interpretation of quantum mechanics led him to the principle of complementarity: that quantum (subatomic) energy phenomena could be analyzed separately as having several contradictory properties that operate within a single intelligent framework."

"The relevant discussion of beta-endorphin functioning has been found within the alcoholism and addiction literature which has looked at the role of beta-endorphin in the reinforcing properties of alcohol and other drugs. Originally designed as an effective control substance in the beta-endorphin research, sucrose has emerged as an intriguing substance which is consumed for many of the properties it shares with alcohol (i.e., the production of beta-endorphin). The role of sugars consumption as a predictor of human alcohol intake was recently presented in the American Journal of Psychiatry [3]."

"Based on the products' Material Safety Data Sheets, which chemical manufacturers must provide companies purchasing their products, they discovered the following disturbing information: twenty-six of the perfume's ingredients fell into the categories "Toxicological properties have not been investigated" or "Toxicological properties have not been thoroughly investigated." Twenty-five ingredients were classified as "irritants." Five more ingredients were allergens or "skin sensitizers." Three possessed "fetal, hormonal and reproductive toxicity."

"It also has nerve protectant properties, and can aid in colon health. A reasonable daily dosage is in the range of 500 to 1500 mg., depending upon the patient and circumstances. Quercitin. This is often helpful for asthma patients, as well as people with eczema and allergies, because it blocks the release of histamine and reduces inflammation. In effect, it is a natural antihistamine, as well as a natural anti-inflammatory. A reasonable daily dosage is in the range of 600 to 1,800 mg., depending upon the patient and circumstances. Oregano oil."

"Two research studies have tested the ability of a bifidobacteria-fermented soy milk extract to stimulate hylauronic acid and improve properties of the skin. The results showed that there was an improvement in the appearance of the skin. Whether this is due to the probiotic or other nutrients is not fully known. Keep your eyes open for more research into the ability of probiotics to help you get a natural face-lift. Kidney Stones Kidney stones are one of the most painful of the problems you can have with your urogenital tract. Kidney stones have been a problem for humans for many years."

"Evidence to date suggests that probiotics have protective properties against cancer. Studies have found that probiotics prevent DNA damage, which is an initiator of cancer. Some epidemiological studies suggest that consumption of fermented dairy products, which are good dietary sources of probiotics, might have protective effects against colon cancer. Thus, it is possible that using probiotics may be a natural way to decrease the risk of colon cancer. Liver Cancer Liver cancer is the sixth most commonly diagnosed cancer in the world."

"Another substance with mild chelating properties is alpha lipoic acid, or ALA. This natural chelator is much less efficient than others, however, so it is not generally applied as a first-line tactic against heavy metals. One advantage of ALA is that it regenerates glutathione, which helps drive the natural detoxification processes of methylation and glutathione conjugation. Another advantage is that it's a powerful antioxidant, and can therefore help fight inflammation, at the same time that it is helping to excrete heavy metals."

"The blood-thinning properties of both can make the blood too thin. Ginkgo biloba. Ginkgo inhibits clotting activity to some degree. Thus, to avoid excessive bleeding, don't take it with Coumadin or any other antiplatelet agents. Saint-John's-wort. This popular herb may weaken the therapeutic effect of Coumadin by promoting certain liver enzymes to clear medication from the body faster. Don't take it with Coumadin. Other medications. Many medications impair or intensify the effectiveness of Coumadin. Whenever you change your regimen, get a repeat blood check."

"And I think that's the direction that we have to be going in: pushing for alternatives in the marketplace that provide the same service but don't have the same chemical and health properties." And the marketplace might in fact be moving in this direction. In response to growing health concerns, several major companies, like Dell, have committed to eliminating flame retardants from their products over the next few years. Until we understand more about these extremely high volume chemicals, we need to reduce our children's exposure to them whenever possible."

"Hoffer, a retired psychiatrist in Victoria, British Columbia, codiscovered niacin's cholesterol-lowering properties more than fifty years ago and subsequently used it for thousands of patients over decades. He found it also greatly benefits schizophrenics. Hoffer said the flush is most intense initially. As you continue taking niacin, the intensity lessens, and often within a week or two it vanishes completely. If you stop taking niacin and then resume at some later date you may experience a full flush again."

"If you like red wine, as many Mediterraneans do, you will be pleased to know about red wine polyphenols, compounds that change the properties of blood lipids to make LDL more resistant to oxidation. Moderate wine drinkers have a significantly lower mortality rate from coronary heart disease. Reservatrol, an antioxidant enzyme present in the lining of the grape, has been suggested as the antidote for keeping the incidence of French cardiovascular disease at a low level despite a typically fat-rich diet. From the Asian drinking tradition we recommend green tea."

"There are many health-promoting properties to green tea, and thousands of published studies verifying its benefits. Tea is generally high in antioxidants, but green is highest. Green tea is the least processed of all teas (green tea leaves are simply steamed). Oolong tea has some antioxidant effect, but lower levels than green tea, and black tea has the lowest levels of the three. White tea is similar to green tea (not fermented or processed), but the tea leaves are picked before the leaves open fully."

"Synthetic progesterone (Provera or medroxyprogesterone) used in the now infamous WHI study has been shown for years to be carcinogenic (both to the breast and the ovaries) and to have other properties that can lead to excess clotting and heart problems. Synthetic progesterone has been shown to negate most positive estrogen effects on the heart, lipids, and blood vessels."

"An enormous industry has sprung up to promote the cancer-fighting properties of foods and products that contain antioxidants. Eat more antioxidant-rich broccoli, the logic goes, and you'll live a longer and healthier life. True, perhaps, but not for the reasons the marketing folks would have you believe. It turns out that these foods are particularly beneficial not only because they contain antioxidants but also because they contain toxins. "

"The Secret Lives of Fat Cells Let's take another look at fat and some of the fascinating properties of fat tissue that have only recently been discovered. We used to think that fat cells were simply cells that stored fat. We've always known that if you eat more calories than your body needs, your fat cells stretch to store those extra calories. But until fairly recently fat cells were basically viewed as simple storage units."

"When I was first studying the various properties of specific foods, it was a revolutionary notion that propelled me. The idea that intrigued me was that certain foods were actually better for you, better for your health, than others. This went beyond the obvious comparisons of, say, a steak and a salad. Most people would guess that a salad is more health-promoting than a steak and they'd be right. But what about the ingredients in that salad: the types of lettuce, the various vegetables? And what about the other choices that we make every day about which foods to include in our diet?"

"These shotgun properties can also reduce the threat of stroke. Statins can stabilize plaque in the carotid artery as well as in the aortic arch, the first large artery receiving blood when the heart contracts. This is why we use statins in patients with advanced plaque of the carotids and high EBT calcium scores. Who Should and Should Not Take Statins We have little doubt that statin therapy cuts the incidence of heart disease, especially for those at the greatest risk."

"As you modify your eating-style to move up to a higher level of nutritional excellence you will be able to maximize the body's miraculous self-healing properties and slow the process of aging. Four Levels of Nutritional Excellence In Phase One, you will learn to eliminate fried foods and make substitutions for low-nutrient foods, such as ice cream, chips, candy, and white flour products. You will also eliminate foods like cheese and butter that are high in saturated fats, and your cooking techniques will use a minimal amount of oil. Salt is also significantly reduced."

"Coconut oil has a high (50 percent-plus) lauric fatty acid and caprylic acid content, from which it derives its anti-parasitical, anti-viral, and anti-fungal properties. Those with intestinal problems such as Candida or other systemic infections can therefore benefit from the daily inclusion of coconut oil in their diet. Coconut oil can be added to nut mylks, dressings, desserts (acting as a thickener when chilled), and even soups. I do not recommend more than 1-2 tablespoons of coconut oil daily because of its tendency to raise cholesterol in higher amounts."

"Bitter melon is made of several compounds that have anti-diabetic properties, including charantin, which has been shown to be more powerful than the hypoglycemic drug tolbutamide, and an insulin-like polypeptide called polypeptide-P, which lowers blood sugar when injected into Type-l diabetics.52 In one study, it decreased the glucose tolerance by 73 percent when people were given 2 ounces of the juice.53 In another study there was a 17 percent reduction in glycosylated hemoglobin in six people."

"Insulin is thought to affect the development of endometrial cancer through its hormonal stimulating properties. In twenty-two endometrial cancer patients in one study, those with high hyperinsulinemia had significantly more steroid hormone receptors in the tumor area, compared with patients with low insulin anemia.152,153 Researchers also discovered a link between colon cancer and insulin levels and it may be associated with insulin's role as a growth factor in the colon."

"In conclusion, the antioxidant and anti-hyperglycemic properties of B. oleracea in cabbage may offer a potential therapeutic source for the treatment of diabetes. HUCKLEBERRY The huckleberry juice compounds may also offer significant protection against diabetic retinopathy and cataracts. Such huckleberry compound extracts are being widely used throughout Europe in the prevention of diabetic retinopathy."

"We believe that some of the newer drugs on the market—the DPP-4 inhibitors and incretin mimetics—along with the older drug metformin, have interesting properties and characteristics that make them attractive options. Prevention, however, is still the best solution.
