"Using fatty acid levels in breast tissue as a biomarker of past dietary intake of fatty acids, they examined the hypothesis that breast cancer risk is negatively associated with omega-3 EPA and DHA and positively associated with omega-6 linoleic acid and arachidonic acid. Breast adipose tissue was collected from 73 breast cancer patients and 74 controls. The linoleic acid and arachidonic acid content was significantly higher in cancer cases than in controls. There was a trend in the data suggesting that, at a given level, omega-6 PUFA, EPA and DHA may have a protective effect."

"These findings are confirmed by additional work by Thompson and colleagues, who note that in another experimental study, dietary supplementation with flaxseed or isolated lignans reduced chemically induced mammary tumor size and number. There's a lot more to the protective powers of flax lignans. They also seem to weaken the toxic effects of excess estrogen—especially the most potent types of estrogen in women's bodies that are associated with cancerous processes."

"In women, reduced cancer risks of all sites combined and of the colon were noted for combined intake of all vegetables and fruits, fruit intake alone, and dietary vitamin C. Supplemental use of vitamins A and C showed a protective effect on colon cancer risk in women. There was some suggestion that beta-carotene intake and supplemental use of vitamins A, C, and E were associated with reduced risk of lung cancer in women, although none of these results were statistically significant. Improves Life Expectancy Vitamin C also appears to be useful in prolonging survival."

"Long-chain omega-3 fatty acids (EPA and DHA) consistently inhibit the growth of human breast cancer cells, both in culture and in grafts applied to immuno-suppressed mice. dietary intake of omega-3s leads to their incorporation into cell membranes."

"According to the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the definition of a dietary supplement is "any product taken by mouth that contains a so-called dietary ingredient and its label clearly states that it is a dietary supplement. The 'dietary ingredients' in dietary supplements may include vitamins, minerals, herbs, colloidal minerals, trace elements and amino acids as well as substances such as enzymes, organ tissues, metabolites, extracts or concentrates. dietary supplements can be found in many forms such as pills, tablets, capsules, liquids or powders."

"As with any dietary guideline, I offer you this prescription as an emotional guideline. Also, as with any dietary guideline, you don't need to achieve this ratio at any given moment, or even on any given day. Strive instead to meet or exceed this ratio over a stretch of several days or even weeks. In chapter 7, I'll describe the fascinating research that led to this prescription. I'll also discuss the science that backs it. Of course, as with any prescription or dietary guideline, this 3-to-i positivity ratio is subject to modification. Future studies will no doubt have more to teach us."

"The mineral can be crowded out of the intestinal absorption areas by calcium, and its absorption can also be slowed by dietary fat, phosphate, and other substances that bind to it during the digestion process and make it insoluble. Roughly half of the magnesium in your body is inside your cells, and the other half is bound up with calcium and phosphorus in your bones."

"Lovastatin is used along with dietary therapy to reduce total cholesterol and LDL cholesterol, as well as to prevent or slow the progression of coronary artery disease. Possible Side Effects The drug's side effects include blurred vision, muscle cramps, joint pain, and a potentially fatal muscle disease called rhabdomyolysis."

"BISACODYL (bis-uh-KOE-dil) Brand Names: Bisaco-Lax, Carter's Litde Pills, Correctol, Dacodyl, Dulcolax, Feen-a-Mint, Femilax, PMS-Bisacodyl About Bisacodyl Constipation (infrequent or difficult bowel movements) can be triggered by many things, including certain drugs, a lack of physical activity, hypothyroidism, excessive levels of calcium in the blood, and lack of dietary fiber. "The slows" may also be to blame. When the transit time of ingested food lengthens, the stool remains in the intestine longer, allowing the body to reabsorb more of its water."

"Orlistat accomplishes this by interfering with the action of enzymes that break down dietary fat and make it available for absorption in the digestive tract. As a result, less fat can be absorbed, and much of it is carried out along with the stool. Orlistat is typically used in conjunction with a weight-control diet to treat obese patients who also have diabetes, elevated blood pressure, or other serious conditions. Possible Side Effects The drug's more common side effects include headache, abdominal pain, fecal urgency, and fatty, oily stool."

"Dietary Fiber 0g 0% | Most Americans don't get Vitamin A 4% Vitamin C 2% Calcium 20% Iron 4% ............. enough dietary fiber, vitamins, and minerals from their diet. You might want to look for foods that contain more of the nutrients on the label, but because the list of nutrients is so narrow, it's not really helpful. When you focus on only a few nutrients, it can make a food look satisfactory when it actually contains a very narrow complement of nutrients. The little bit of nutrients in or added to processed foods can be confusing."

"Two weeks after the dietary change and herbal medication, Priya's symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis completely vanished. She could walk. She could run. Her hands felt fine. She went back to her normal routine. When I heard about Priya's response, I was impressed with Anju's clinical acumen. Anju had eliminated the root cause of the problem. Many doctors, by the year 2000, were dabbling with natural types of modalities, but too many were just using them for the old-fashioned purpose of knocking down symptoms, instead of employing them as part of a comprehensive program that reversed root causes."

"Only Natural Pet also has a great selection of high-quality nontoxic pet foods, cat litter, grooming products, dietary supplements, and accessories. But in general, you don't need to spend a lot of money keeping your pet happy and healthy. A nourishing diet and plenty of love usually do the trick. Chapter 8 Green Pediatrics I n recent years, we've seen a new and exciting movement in the field ?of medicine, especially pediatric medicine: the emergence of the "green" doctor. Green pediatricians promote what Dr. Lawrence Rosen calls "a philosophy of whole child care."

"Joel Fuhrman, who specializes in preventing and reversing disease through holistic and dietary protocols, clarified the distinction between genetic and environmental contributors to disease. "We all have genetic differences," he told me. "There's great variability among the human genome, which makes some of us more susceptible to various environmental and toxic stresses than others. You may be more prone to heart disease, and another person may be more prone to a certain type of cancer."

"She was happier and more alert. The dietary changes helped her, but her immune system remained hyperactive and hypersensitive, and never fully recovered." Anju took a breath. "Priya died of an anaphylactic reaction to a trace amount of peanut in an egg roll. "I wish I could turn back time. I wish I knew then what I know now, about the effects of vaccines and heavy metals on a developing immune system. I sought out the people I thought would help, but I was sent down a path that led to tragedy. "I applaud your efforts for being here."

"Supplementation therapy: using nutritional supplements to maximize the benefits of dietary changes, to compensate for nutrient deficiencies and nutrient dependencies, and to support the immune system, gastrointestinal system, and nervous system. 3. Detoxification: eliminating toxic materials from the body, to stop the biochemical assault upon the nervous system, immune system, and gastrointestinal system, and thereby help to restore proper function of these systems. 4."

"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. Despite these figures, the cancer remains relatively rare, with 18,500 new cases in the United States every year, and about 3,000 in the United Kingdom."

"More than 30% of cancers are thought to be preventable with dietary means. A diet rich in a variety of colorful fruits and vegetables, whole grains and legumes is thought to offer the body many nutrients to help fight cancer development. What should you avoid? Alcohol, aspartame and barbecued meats are on the list of foods that may increase the risk of cancer. Want an easy rule of thumb? The more processed or artificial a food, the more likely it is to cause more harm than benefits. Ultraviolet Light The ability of the sun to damage your skin is well known."

"Prebiotics are dietary fiber. As such, they have many positive effects on your intestines. Fiber helps to increase stool frequency, particularly in people suffering from constipation. Prebiotics also decrease fecal pH. This drop in pH helps prevent the production of harmful (putrefactive) substances by bad microbes in the colon. By this mechanism, prebiotics may have a cancer preventative effect. These harmful chemicals can lead to damage of colon cell DNA, which can, in turn, lead to cancer. Do you need another reason to include prebiotics in your diet?"

"Pure vegetarians miss out on common dietary sources of L-carnitine, just as they do with CoQIO. We see many vegetarians with low blood levels of both. The word carnitine comes from the Latin word carnis, meaning flesh or meat. The highest quantities of L-carnitine are found in mutton from older sheep, followed by lamb, beef, other red meat, and pork. The least amount is found in plant food. Many vegetarians fail to get enough L-carnitine in their diet and may also lack the methionine and lysine needed to synthesize it in their bodies."

"Experts say that the overall ratio of omega-6s to omega-3 s in today's Western diet ranges from 20 or 30 to 1 instead of an evolutionary ratio of 1 or 2 to 1. This dietary shift has created an alarming imbalance that researchers believe may contribute to inflammation, blood clot formation, and blood vessel constriction. A balanced ratio in the diet is essential for normal growth and development. Because the typical American diet contains such an overkill of omega-6 and its major component of linoleic acid, supplementation of omega-6 is not usually needed. But omega-3 is a different story."

"In addition to following these essential dietary protocols, you should also take a prenatal vitamin to guard against certain birth defects. As early as possible, you should consult your health-care provider about which vitamins to take before and during pregnancy. Since folic acid helps prevent neural-tube defects and protects against preeclampsia, it's become standard practice for U.S. women of childbearing age to take a folate supplement. Health-food stores carry a number of good prenatal vitamins, but you should always check with a professional before making your selection."

"Add to the mix those people who are overweight or obese because of dietary imbalance or inactivity, and the totals are staggering. How Did We Go So Wrong? For many people, health troubles started when they immigrated to North America from sunnier climates in other parts of the world. A hundred years ago, we saw a flood of immigrants from Europe and China. In the past fifty years, many immigrants have come from Mexico, India, Southeast Asia, and the Middle East, all far sunnier climates than most of the United States."

"This is a little bit more difficult to follow because it requires a lot of input on the part of the patients and the children to follow these dietary recommendations and the supplemental regimes. This takes a family effort and children very much have role models in what their brothers and sisters and their parents are doing. Everyone really needs to follow this approach. All I can say is that it is a very healthy approach for anybody to have a diet free of additives and preservatives, organic as much as possible, pesticide-free."
- Gary Null and Amy McDonald, The Food-Mood Connection: Nutrition-based and Environmental Approaches to Mental Health and Physical Wellbeing (Get the book.)

"So while the dietary regimen is largely the same for all—avoid sugar and any foods that make you sick—supplements are determined on a case-by-case basis." If you are taking a substance because you're depressed, you might have some form of brain imbalance, or your depression may be physiologically induced?an underactive thyroid or a blood sugar imbalance. High blood sugar or low blood sugar manifests as depression."

"Of course, unlike the largely middle-class twins in these dietary studies, impoverished Southern identical and fraternal twins had few dietary choices and often went hungry. Thus, we cannot be sure that the greater identical twin correlation for food preference and nutrient intake could have been generalized to this population, but to the extent that identical twins spend more time together, they will eat more similar foods than fraternal twins and will therefore be more concordant for pellagra."
