"A physician's help will be needed to monitor this. Gastrointestinal symptoms may require dose decrease or temporary cessation. Banaba Therapy An extract of the leaves of the banaba plant has a material called corosolic acid that lowers blood sugar values in diabetics. When taken in a dose of 48 mg daily 20 diabetics were reported by William Judy, Ph.D to exhibit decrease in sugar levels by 32%. This plant appears to work by increasing the rate that glucose is transported out of the blood. There was no evidence of hypoglycemia. Glucosol (banaba) can be obtained from Harmony Co."

"Women with estrogen dependent breast cancer must get advice from their physician before starting this treatment. Patients with liver disease should take DHEA sublingually or in a skin cream, so less DHEA passes through the liver. Obviously, liver function should be regularly monitored. The most effective way to reverse aging is with growth hormone. This converts fat to muscle, increases stamina and improves sexual performance. Unfortunately this is expensive but less so with secretagogue therapy than the use of intra-muscular injections of growth hormone."

"Also monitoring of serial liver function results by a physician is necessary, as an occasional patient on statins or red yeast develops liver function abnormalities. The appearance of unexplained muscle tenderness (necrosis) may rarely occur with statins or red yeast therapy and calls for immediate cessation of either treatment. Garlic A liquid garlic extract from Kyolic caused a 12 to 31% fall in cholesterol in most subjects after 6 months. Garlic also inhibits the oxidation of cholesterol, which is a key step in the creation of an arteriosclerotic plaque."

"He went to a physician and when he learned that there was no cure, he embarked on an extensive literature search to find a cure. After 107 days of learning what to do about diabetes, his blood sugars were back to normal. No drugs or other therapy had been used. He has written a book titled Insulin: Our Silent Killer (Phone 866-320 7700 to order) in which he outlines the cause and path to recovery from Type 2 diabetes. Diabetes was a very rare illness in the United States in 1880, with only 2.8 persons out of every 100,000 having diabetes."

"Consult your physician before changing the doses of your child's medication, and don't be discouraged if your doctor reluctantly approves but doesn't enthusiastically endorse these methods. Still, despite the minimal risk attached to most natural therapies, you may feel more confident if you talk to your child's physician first. I still encourage you to do your own research and exercise your own good judgment. Unfortunately, most doctors are far too skeptical about complementary medicine."

"This means, however, that besides issues of drug tolerance and acceptance, the services rendered by the physician can have a greater impact on the patient's condition than the pharmacodynamic actions of the therapeutic agent itself. This discovery is by no means limited to the treatment of depression. It is equally valid for a great many important indications in general medicine. This is proven by quantitative analyses of the placebo contribution to the overall efficacy of pharmacologic therapies in controlled clinical studies. As Fig. 1."

"It's difficult as a physician to get people to take exercise seriously, as a treatment that actually has medical benefits aside from taking off the pounds." The field of obstetrics isn't really set up to diagnose or treat mental health issues related to pregnancy. Shaw will bring up exercise as a solution to a problem, but she says it's hard for any physician to find the time to discuss preventive medicine. It can also be dicey, she points out, to suggest exercise to a woman who's juggling so many new responsibilities and might not be feeling so hot about her body. "

"In summary, these facts and figures make it clear that, regardless of the synthetic or herbal origin of the agents used in antidepressant pharmacotherapy, from one-half to two-thirds of the therapeutic effect is referable to the self-healing powers of the patient and their stimulation by the treating physician, while a smaller portion is referable to the pharmacodynamic actions of the drugs."

"In fact, Americans who visit physicians following adverse reactions to medications account for well over two million physician visits each year! This book aims to bring life-saving foods back into our health plans and to resurrect traditional medicinal uses for foods, many of which are now backed by modern science.

"A WORD OF CAUTION A person who is taking medication on the advice and direction of their physician should continue doing so. Any change in diet or medical treatment should be made in consultation with your personal holistic physician. Realize that drugs are for emergencies and should be taken only as long as the emergency persists. Your goal should be to strengthen your body with natural nutrition and rejuvenating lifestyle practices. FOOD PREPARATION TIPS TO MAXIMIZE NUTRITION AND DIGESTION Grains should be sprouted. Breads made from sprouted grains are best."

"Monsanto proceedings, however, it was revealed that Suskind had in his possession at the time examinations of the workers by Monsanto's physician, Dr. Nestman, documenting neurological health effects. Another Monsanto study involved independent medical examinations of surviving employees by Monsanto physicians. Several hundred former Monsanto employees were too ill to travel to participate in the study. Monsanto refused to use the attending physicians' reports of the illness as part of their study, saying that it would introduce inconsistencies."

"The physician uses a short length of blood vessel from another part of the body to provide a way for blood to go around blockages in coronary arteries, much as a detour functions to route traffic around the congestion caused by an accident or by highway construction. But as I have already argued, these interventions are aimed at alleviating the symptoms of coronary artery disease, not at curing the disease itself. And their results erode with the passage of time. Patients have second and third bypasses. Arteries widened with angioplasty tend to clog once again."
- Caldwell B. Esselstyn, Jr., M.D., Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease (Get the book.)

"In angioplasty, for instance, a physician inserts a hollow tube into an artery in a leg or arm and guides it, using X-ray images, into the clogged coronary artery that is his target. A smaller catheter, with a deflated balloon at its tip, is then fed through the first. When it reaches the clogged area, the balloon is inflated—usually several times—to press the plaque against the artery wall, fracturing the plaque and the arterial wall, widening the vessel, and stripping away the delicate endothelial lining. In recent years, the use of stents has become more common."

"It may be extraordinarily difficult for you and your physician to correct the dysfunction in the systems most closely associated with the 4-A disorders-the immune system, the gastrointestinal system, and the nervous system-without first ridding your child's body of stored toxins. Of particular importance is the excretion of heavy metals, including mercury and lead. Chelation is an exceptionally effective method of ridding the body of heavy metals. So are the natural processes of methylation, sulfation, and glutathione detoxification."

"Your job as a physician is to be there for them and comfort them." Over the years, I've found that one of the most comforting things I can do is to touch my patients. The experience of being touched in a nonsexual way is healing. I am very lucky that I do acupuncture with my patients, where I have an appropriate reason and way to touch them. Touch is a tricky subject to talk about because our culture is so afraid of it, which is a tragedy because physical contact is so necessary for our health and well-being. Babies don't grow properly if they are not held."

"Yes, all of these homeopathic formulas are over the counter and low dosage by definition, but you should always consult with your physician or homoeopath before taking any new substance. Some remedies may interact with over-the-counter or prescription medicine, so make sure to tell your doctor about any substances you're taking. And the following suggestions are pretty generic homeopathy. If you or someone in your family has a particular problem, I recommend seeing a homoeopath for more customized solutions. Please do not, under any circumstances, attempt to make your own formulations."

"He or she may be familiar with the book, if he or she is a DAN doctor, or an integrative physician who stays abreast of the latest trends in the treatment of autism, ADHD, allergies, and asthma. If so, your doctor might wish to use some of the material in this book as a resource guide for your child's program of healing. Various elements of the book, such as the chapters on nutrition and supplementation, are quite thorough, and your doctor may choose to use some of this material to augment his or her own written materials, patient guidelines, and handouts."

"As a physician, I didn't see a lot of Hugo over the next few years, because he hardly ever got sick. I saw him for a sore throat once, a rash once, a headache, and a couple of routine physicals. In 2001,1 treated him for amoebic colitis, in conjunction with an infectious disease specialist. Hugo had apparently contracted the disease while whitewater rafting in Costa Rica. From time to time, when I was traveling to conferences, he'd see other local doctors for his minor ailments. In 2002, when he was ten, he came to me with a more serious problem."

"Many of these tests are reimbursed by insurance companies, but I suggest you ask your physician and/or staff about reimbursement before you proceed with testing. Some tests may need to be paid for out of pocket, and some are not allowed in certain states, particularly New York. Of all the functional tests, the one that is simplest and that I find most helpful as a basic "starter" test is the urine Organix Profile test by Metametrix.All it needs is a first morning urine sample, which is easy to do."

"If you don't love your doctor and trust him or her, perhaps it is time for you to find another physician whom you feel you can trust and who will really be a partner in your healing. If you have come this far and gone to every length you can think of to heal, you really do need help and someone to champion your cause. You can find a list of trained functional medicine practitioners at If your doctor does not know of any labs that do functional tests, there is a list of them in the Resources section (page 305)."

"Therefore, many of them may not be necessary for your child. Your physician can help you to determine which ones are necessary. You will also be guided by your child's own unique signs and symptoms, such as chronic bowel problems, chronic infections, recurrent tics, or obsessive-compulsive behaviors. These tests include the following: • Immune testing panels, which evaluate the following: IgA levels. • IgM levels. IgG levels. • IgG subclass levels. • Lymphocyte subsets. • Natural killer cell activity. • Vaccine titers. • Viral titers. • Thyroid antibodies."

"So she goes to another physician, who tells her that she has a "chemical imbalance" and perhaps a new kind of sleeping pill or a different antidepressant drug might help. When she tells him she has tried all these pills in the last few months and is actually feeling worse, he says she needs a vacation. But she knows something is not right even though both doctors give her a clean bill of health, and that's when she comes to see me. I tell Emily that I know what this bone-weary, awful funk is because I see it all the time—and have been treating patients for it for more than twenty years."

"A small sampling of these side effects, as listed in the Physician's Desk Reference, includes: • Depression • Birth defects • Increased body hair • Acne • Risk of embolism • Decreased glucose tolerance • Allergic reactions Now, in exchange for these significant side effects, Provera does offer some protection against endometrial cancer and a very modest increase in bone formation. Natural Progesterone On the other hand, supplementation with natural progesterone has no known side effects."

"When he or she meets with the physician, it is most likely the patient will be given a prescription medication that will get the blood pressure down. Many doctors prescribe beta-blockers against high blood pressure. But a new scientific study reveals that those beta-blockers prevent strokes only half as good as earlier scientific studies suggested. And more importantly, the risk for brain-infarct106 rises. In addition, more patients get diabetes when they take beta-blockers.107 However, high blood pressure responds quickly to a change in diet and exercise."

"Physician monitoring for liver cell injury and for elevation of blood sugar is needed in diabetic patients who can get high sugar values on niacin treatment.

Turmeric Spice or Curcumin (one of the components of curry that gives it a yellow color and a distinctive odor is called curcumin).

"If your lab tests do prove positive for specific patterns of antibodies that predict you have, say, an 80 percent or better chance of developing one of these autoimmune diseases, your physician quickly reassures you: worry not. With finely tuned, cutting-edge intervention she can treat you in advance of any severe symptoms of disease appearing and prevent your immune cells from ever turning on you. It may sound farfetched—not unlike the capabilities of Dr."

"RESEARCH Prominent physician Nicholas J. Gonzalez, M.D., affiliated with Cornell University Medical School of New York, currently uses pancreatic proteolytic enzymes as a major component in his treatment for cancer patients. His treatment method combines pancreatic proteolytic enzymes with specific diets based on an individual's makeup. His success resulted in a grant by the National Cancer Institute (NCI) to conduct clinical trials with enzymes for cancer treatment. The United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2000 also granted orphan drug status to a systemic enzyme supplement."
