"If you have a little more time to exercise or if you would like a change of pace, we also discuss other types of physical activities that are beneficial for improving insulin sensitivity and blood glucose control and how and when to monitor your blood glucose around your exercise sessions. PHYSICAL ACTIVITY AND DIABETES Physical activity has far-reaching effects and benefits for everyone. This is especially true for people who want to prevent, reverse, or better manage metabolic disease."

"These data suggested that L-carnitine was beneficial in limiting angina, or myocardial ischemia, due to its metabolic effect. Remember, ischemia is defined as lack of oxygenated blood flow to a tissue. There's a vicious cycle that takes place during ischemic episodes, which actually makes things worse. Even before the person may be aware of an anginal symptom, several metabolic abnormalities occur almost instantaneously: beta-oxidation is curtailed, and toxic levels of free fatty acids start accumulating."

"Today, placebo is used to describe any form of treatment where patients are led to believe that they're experiencing a beneficial procedure or receiving a curative agent, while in reality they're given something that has no known healing properties. The placebo can be as simple as a sugar pill or common saline solution or as complex as an actual surgery during which nothing is done. In other words, while the patients have agreed to participate in a medical study, they may not know precisely what their role in it will be."

"They were beneficial to you then, and you still see them that way as an adult. You believe that they're good and that those who possess these qualities are good people. ?Statement 3 brings an awareness of the things that you want and need most in life from the perspective of a child. Ultimately, the answer to this question illustrates that while you may be grown up now, you're still searching for essentially the same things that you sought when you were young—only now you typically go about getting them in more sophisticated and adult ways. ?"

"Sharon lost 22 pounds in six months, and she wasn't even on a diet! The beneficial effects of vitamin D and a good diet on fatigue, pain, and weight in just six months were amazing. She saw a 50 percent reduction in her pain and fatigue, and her sleep quality improved. What's great is that the Vitamin D Cure doesn't just suppress symptoms, it also addresses the cause of the symptoms. To Feel Full, Eat Protein The feeling of satisfaction and fullness after a meal comes from several signals, including your stomach's degree of distention and the foods you ate."

"The DASH diet also had beneficial effects on other aspects of the metabolic syndrome. The combination diet caused a 50 percent improvement in insulin sensitivity. In a separate study looking at the effect the DASH diet had on metabolic syndrome symptoms in Iranian men and women, Dr. Leila Asadbakht saw reduced waist circumferences and body weight. In fact, the DASH diet worked better than a calorie-restricted diet. And compared to the calorie-restricted diet, the DASH diet significantly lowered triglycerides and raised HDL, and it lowered fasting blood sugar more efficiently."

"The results of the Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension (DASH) trial provided further support for the beneficial effects of a potassium-rich diet on blood pressure.155 Compared to a control diet providing only 3.5 servings per day of fruits and vegetables and 1,700 mg per day of potassium, consumption of a diet that included 8.5 servings per day of fruits and vegetables and 4,100 mg per day of potassium lowered blood pressure by an average of 2.8/1.1 mm Hg (systolic BP/diastolic BP) in people with normal blood pressure and by an average of 7.2/2.8 mm Hg in people with hypertension."

"Research has clearly shown that the antioxidants vitamin C and E inhibit the formation of AGEs,36 and have been shown to reduce protein glycosylation both in vivo and in vitro,37'3S with beneficial results in the treatment of Type-2 diabetes. Vitamins C and E also act as scavengers of free radicals generated by the glycosylated proteins.39 Davie, et al. supplemented twelve nondiabetic subjects with 1 gram daily of vitamin C and demonstrated significant decreases of glycosylated hemoglobin of 18 percent and glycosylated albumin of 33 percent over a three-month period.40 Jain, et al."

"There are three important estrones to know about: 2-methoxyestrone (2-ME estrone) is the beneficial form of estrogen responsible for most of the good things that we attribute to estrogen. I liken her to a fairy godmother bestowing strong bones, a clear mind, and a strong heart. The estrone 2-methoxyestrone (made from 2-OH estrone) prevents inflammation in the bones, brain, and heart vessels, thereby lowering your risk of dementia, osteoporosis, and heart disease."

"MILK THISTLE Milk thistle has been found to be beneficial in a wide range of liver disorders. Eighty-percent silymarin extracts of milk thistle (for example, a 200-mg capsule of milk thistle will have 160 mg of silymarin) have been found to have antioxidant and glucose-regulating properties. In a study at Monfalcone Hospital in Groiza, Italy, sixty insulin-dependent diabetics took either 600 mg of silymarin or a placebo for twelve months. After the first month, in which fasting glucose levels were elevated, fasting glucose declined by 9.5 percent and average daily glucose dropped 14."

"Pretreatment with L-carnitine also reduced more serious arrhythmias in this animal model, leading researchers to suggest that carnitine may be beneficial in arrhythmias, presumably by supporting free fatty acid metabolism. I have seen impressive results in my own clinical experience with patients responding to L-carnitine, particularly in combination with other members of the "triad."

"The best way to manage fats in your diet is to balance them: focus on eating the fats that are known to be beneficial (such as monounsaturated and omega-3 fats). It's important to note here that it is best to GOOD SOURCES OF SOLUBLE FIBER Note: We did not include the amount of soluble fiber in these foods because fiber content can vary significantly due to growing conditions and how the produce was processed or stored."

"It is especially beneficial for any child who has cognitive impairment, characterized by poor memory, or inability to focus. This problem is often seen in children with the inattentive subtype of ADHD. DMAE helps the body to produce acetylcholine, the neurotransmitter that is the primary carrier of thought and memory. When acetylcholine levels are low-as they are in many autistic and ADHD kids-it can be very difficult for children to maintain coherent streams of thought. When levels are increased, it can result in relatively sudden bursts of cognitive improvement."

"The use of probiotic supplements, for example, can be profoundly beneficial. One of the most important healing elements of the anti-yeast diet is its contribution to overcoming the condition of having microscopic holes in the gut, which allow undigested food molecules to escape from the gut and enter the system. In the system, the partial proteins from these food molecules often do terrible damage, particularly to the nervous system and immune system. This condition-known as leaky gut syndrome, or as intestinal hyperpermeability-is frequently caused by intestinal candidiasis."

"It can be beneficial in the methylation process, but because of complex individual variations, only about one in five children benefit from it. More often than not, it has no effect. This limited value is reflected by the ARI parent survey: Symptoms improved: 19 percent No discernible effect: 66 percent Symptoms worsened: 15 percent Even so, it helps some patients. All patients are different. In adults, for example, it has been shown to be helpful in the treatment of depression and arthritis. However, in children with autism-spectrum disorders, I rarely use SAMe."

"Supplements, for example, can be extraordinarily beneficial to the immune system. A combination of zinc, vitamin A, vitamin C, transfer factor, and other specific nutrients can help restore the impaired immune function that is often a critical root cause of the 4-A disorders. Some parents, however, are resistant to the concept of supplementation therapy, because they often hear presumed experts in the media saying that a healthy diet is sufficient to provide all necessary nutrients. This sounds reasonable-but it's not."

"Cardiovascular considerations aside, the B vitamins are beneficial in the treatment of nervous problems, fatigue, and stress, and in the prevention of alcohol problems. Among the B vitamins, folic acid is the best deterrent against spina bifida, a disabling spinal birth defect. The B vitamins participate in the most important aspects of food metabolism, the production of energy, and immune function. The only adverse effect we have seen from the B vitamins is constipation—from B-12—in a few patients. Generally, if you take too much vitamin B, your system excretes the excess."

"The research has brought out a fascinating and unheralded aspect of statins: their pleiotropic effect, meaning the drugs have beneficial actions above and beyond cholesterol reduction. Can Crestor Reverse Plaque? It was with great interest that we read a highly publicized 2006 study appearing in the Journal of the American Medical Association claiming plaque reversal for the Goliath of statin drugs-Crestor."

"After leading 17 expeditions to explore ancient mysteries, I noticed that over time, customs and traditions of successful cultures seem to undergo an unconscious but intelligent natural selection: Practices not good for a society tended to disappear while beneficial ones often survived—no matter how counterintuitive they may seem. I remember a story about a tribe in sub-Saharan Africa that cooked over open fires inside their huts. The huts filled with smoke that the villagers breathed. When a Peace Corps worker saw this he reasoned that the people's lungs were blackening with smoke."

"In twelve of fifteen controlled studies of people with impaired glucose tolerance, chromium supplementation was found to improve some measure of glucose utilization or to have beneficial effects on blood lipid profiles.163 Chromium used synergistically with biotin seems to work to improve beta cell function and enhance glucose uptake by both liver and muscle cells and inhibit excessive glucose production in the liver. About 25-30 percent of individuals with impaired glucose tolerance eventually develop Type-2 diabetes."

"In his new series of experiments, Blasband sent an intention for the energy within the accumulator to be beneficial to certain seedlings and harmful to others. These results were disappointing, too. There was only one significant difference in the number or quality of biophoton emissions before and after treatment of any of the plants: the only effective intention appeared to be the one he had sent to stunt their growth.1 In both experiments, negative intention was more powerful than positive intention. Thoughts to harm had the greatest effect."

"Some people eat dandelion greens as a salad which is very beneficial. Dandelion comes fresh or as a tea, capsules or tincture. This herb is best taken right before a meal to aid with digestion. Dosage varies depending on which form you purchase. Digestive Enzymes Digestive enzymes are a means for the body to break down foods and absorb their nutrients. Our body naturally makes digestive enzymes through the liver, the pancreas and stomach. If you do not have good digestion, digestive enzymes act as insurance for proper absorption."

"BOOSTING YOUR BODY I can't express enough how beneficial it is to nurture and nourish your body's incredibly powerful detoxification methods.The moment you decide to address this intricate, delicate system and lend a helping hand is the moment you choose optimal health and a better, more vibrant life. Such simple, concrete steps as eating cleanly, exercising regularly, and evicting as many toxic substances from your life as possible, begin paying off immediately. You'll likely watch unwanted weight disappear. You'll sense a diminishment in any medical condition you may currently have."

"Eating a diet with significant amounts of foods rich in omega-3s can be highly beneficial. By increasing your intake of omega-3 fatty acids while reducing your intake of omega-6 fatty acids (especially from unhealthy sources), you will naturally bring the ratio of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids back to a healthier, 2:1 or (optimally) 1:1 balance. In addition to seeking healthy sources of essential fatty acids, I encourage supplementation with fish oil capsules."

"PROBIOTIG S Probiotic supplements help keep a healthy balance of beneficial bacteria in your digestive tract, which is home to more than 500 different species of bacteria. Ideally, 80 percent are good or neutral bacteria and 20 percent are bad bacteria. As I already outlined in Chapter 3, there are literally trillions of individual bacteria residing in the digestive tract, with the majority of the population living in the large intestine."

"The most beneficial form is methol coalobin. Hopefully, they will take them. If not, try to blend them into juices—orange juice or V-8 juice, whatever they are willing to drink. Alcohol frequently swells the brain if you have a sensitivity to it, so you need vitamin Bl—a lot. If you're an alcoholic, you need at least 100 milligrams twice a day. Normally, I suggest 10 milligrams of Bl, 15 milligrams of B2, and 15 milligrams of B6, but not with an alcoholic. They need the whole B complex at a higher level."

"Music therapy and relaxation techniques have also been proven to be beneficial. Panic Disorder_ Panic disorder strikes about six million adults in the United States, and twice as many women than men. Dr. Lynne Freeman, director of the Open Doors Institute in Los Angeles, describes panic disorder as "very dramatic episodes that involve heart palpitations, sweating, feelings of disorientation, shaky limbs and the feeling that one is about to go insane or die." Panic attacks often begin in late adolescence."

"Other nutritional remedies that have been shown to be beneficial in treating mood disorders include omega-3 fatty acids, phenylalanine, triiodothyronine, 1-cysteine, folic acid, inositol, vitamin B12, and vitamin C. Patient Story: Bipolar Disorder_ / treated a patient who, for 40 years, exhibited a history that was very clearly that of a manic depressive: He was erratic, impulsive, had marital problems, and was in and out of jobs. His response came when I added lithium to the vitamins, and nothing else."

"Drinking distilled water, at least in the beginning or for part of the treatment, is also beneficial, along with the use of herbal noncaffeinated teas. Dr. Hodes also recommends that a practitioner of biological dentistry remove, in proper sequence, your silver-mercury dental amalgam fillings. Tom Warren, who wrote Beating Alzheimer's, emphasized the importance of this procedure. Bio-oxidative therapies are very effective in bringing oxygen into the brain to increase the individual's ability to think."

"First of all, coenzyme Qio has beneficial effects on oxidative phosphorylation, the process used by the heart for energy turnover. Increased energy metabolism may raise the hypoxic threshold of the heart and delay the onset of anginal symptoms. Or perhaps coenzyme Qio's antianginal action is due to direct membrane protection resulting from free-radical reduction. It could also be a combination of these mechanisms."
