"If you do start thyroid hormone replacement, it is essential to start at the lowest dosage. If, after taking that dose for two weeks, you are not better, double the dosage for two weeks and then reassess.This slow increase in the dose will ensure the most adequate dosage with no side effects or hyperthyroid reaction from overdosage. 4."

"The PortfolioEatingPlan may still help by keeping you at a lower dosage. According to its creator, David Jenkins, MD, PhD, the drugs have more side effects at high doses. He suggests that the Portfolio foods may help people get the most out of their medication, without having to increase the dosage. "Emphasizing diet changes in general can boost the success rate of statins, while providing additional health benefits and a possible alternative for those for whom drugs are not a viable option," Dr. Jenkins adds."

"Dosage recommendations are approximately 25 mg of niacinamide for every 2.2 pounds of body weight, so a person weighing 150 pounds would need about 1.7 grams, or 1,700 milligrams a day. Studies have shown no side effects other than one case of diarrhea, and dosages up to 3 grams daily for six months have produced no problems. If you are taking niacinamide, it is wise to use a B-complex supplement in conjunction with it, to ensure that the larger therapeutic doses create no other B-vitamin deficiencies. Food sources of niacin are spinach and hazelnuts."

"Take this same dosage every night before going to bed for the remaining days of the 6-Day Oxygen Colon Cleanse. After you have completed the 6-Day Cleanse, take your maintenance dosage as needed. Maintenance Dosing To maintain a healthy intestinal tract, I recommend regular cleansing at least 2 times per week. Use the same dosage you used for your 6-Day Oxygen Colon Cleanse. This amount can be taken indefinitely without it becoming habit forming or harmful to your body."

"This slow increase in the dose will ensure the most adequate dosage with no side effects or hyperthyroid reaction from overdosage. 4. If you are still having digestive problems or you have the following symptoms: Bloating Gas Indigestion Reflux Abnormal bowel movements Abdominal pain or discomfort you may need more targeted treatment for the gastrointestinal tract, taking all of these additional supplements for' the best results: An herbal "antibiotic" A glutamine-based formula to restore the lining pf the gut More probiotics Digestive enzymes with meals A fiber formula Go to www."

"Note: Graviola has cardio-depressant, vasodilator, and hypotensive (lowers blood pressure) actions. The dosage should be increased gradually. Overly large dosages can cause nausea and vomiting. Use this treatment only when under the supervision of a health practitioner who understands its value, the above actions, and its possible interaction with other drugs. Miracle Mineral Supplement (MMS) All cancers have three things in common: 1. the immune system is weak and depleted; 2. the body is overwhelmed with toxins and waste matter; 3."

"It has additional benefits for your joints and liver function, so you get a lot of bang for your buck, but it will cost you up to a buck per dose. Dosage: 200 mg on an empty stomach daily Citromax Also called garcinia cambazola, this Brazilian plant also appears to have appetite-suppressing qualities without stimulants. You may find this compound combined with picolinate chromium, which increases insulin's action. Dosage: 500-1,000 mg twice a day prior to lunch and dinner For more on these supplements, see www.drgundry.com."

"Twenty-one of the subjects were able to reduce their drug dosage significantly. Five were able to discontinue their medication and maintained blood sugar control with this herb alone.174 Dosage: The average dose per day in many of these studies was 400 mg. CURCUMIN (TURMERIC) Curcumin is a strong antioxidant, and has been associated with treating complications in diabetes. It inhibits oxidation—an internal rusting—because it protects against free radicals that are caused by the cross linkages and high sugar."

"The second product is melatonin, a hormone that is also related to serotonin. Here dosage is an issue, with a group from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology suggesting that less was better. The problem with taking any of these food supplements, however, is that there is no regulation as to the amount of product in a pill and how much of it, when ingested, actually gets into the bloodstream. So one reason these supplements might not work is that there is either too little or too much melatonin in a tablet. Because of this, a new drug that acts like melatonin looks interesting."

"In cases where we find an acceptable dosage that reduces fatigue, patients continue to take it and the effect usually continues over time. When modafinil does not work or produces intolerable side effects, I will try a general stimulant such as methylphenidate (Ritalin). This is the same Ritalin that became well known in reducing hyperactivity in children. Methylphenidate may calm hyperactive children, but in some adults it helps combat fatigue. No one really understands why the drug has diametrically different actions in children and adults."

"Because many body signs are reactions to both prescription and over-the-counter drugs (including vitamins and herbal supplements), there's also a section to list what medications you've been taking and the dosage of each. This chart can be a wonderful diagnostic tool, one you can bring to your doctor so he or she can have a better sense of what you've been experiencing. WHY WE WROTE THIS BOOK One of us, Joan Liebmann-Smith, became interested in body signs more than twenty years ago when she ignored some serious signs that should have sent her running to her doctor."

"ENZYME SUPPLEMENTATION SUGGESTIONS It is best when addressing these issues with enzymes to start with a low dosage one or two times daily. People with autism tend to be more sensitive and do best when the supplemental recommendations are eased into (low and slow)."

"Patients have reported noticed benefits within the first few months of ingesting the nightly dosage of Essiac." Although we would never claim Flor-Essence alone to be a valid cure for breast cancer in and of itself, its ability to help offset the side effects of chemotherapy and radiation are noteworthy. It should also be added that many people with successful prolongation of life or cancer remissions and who've come to Flor-Essence have done so "late in the game," after all other treatments have failed."

"Obviously, if the dosage was not sufficient, an ineffective result is not a surprise. So if the patient is willing to try again under my direction, I will simply go through the same protocol as above. Monoamine Oxidase Inhibitors (MAOIs) One well-known class of antidepressants that is not often used nowadays is the monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs). They're not the easiest drugs for doctors to use, but can be helpful for some patients. MAOIs work very differently from the SSRIs we just discussed."

"There are dozens more new drugs in hundreds of different dosage forms, and thousands of side effects. Over the years, public understanding of behavior disorders—particularly, attention deficit disorder (ADD) and the hyperactive variation (ADHD)—steadily grew through wider media coverage and the availability of resources on the disorder. My understanding of attention-deficit issues grew not so much from reading but from watching children get into trouble at school, lose friends, and miss out on invitations to birthday parties."

"If results are not satisfactory, increase dosage or repeat as often as needed, important note: Do not mix enzymes with breast milk or formula, since the enzymes will begin to hydrolyze it. Administer enzymes in water to the infant before the child ingests any food. Nursing Mothers: High Potency Digestive Formula with meals and before feedings."

"You should consult the dosage information on the supplements to determine what is safe for children or infants. As a general rule, however, it is good to know that there is no known threshold (maximum amount the body can utilize) for plant-based enzymes (this cannot be said for animal-sourced enzymes). This means the body will utilize and benefit from all of the enzymes consumed. This property is unique; vitamins and minerals, for example, can be overconsumed and at the point a person exceeds his threshold, they actually become a toxin to the body and can have many adverse effects."

"You should consult the dosage information on the supplements to determine what is safe for children. Please note I have included a complete list of enzyme formulas that will help. The result is often a list of four or more product formulas. Because of this I have marked the most important formulas, the formulas you should not do without, with *.

"For more on these supplements and dosage suggestions, see www.drgundry.com.) MANAGING HYPERTENSION: SUPPLEMENT YOUR DIET Hawthorne berries, olive leaf extract, magnesium, and manganese all help dilate (relax) blood vessels. Indeed, many studies suggest that hypertension is a good marker for low stores of magnesium in the body.9 Most hospital patients admitted for heart disease have low magnesium levels. Magnesium is given to all open-heart surgery patients to prevent irregular heartbeats and potentially fatal arrhythmias as well as to keep their blood pressure down."

"He suggests that the Portfolio foods may help people get the most out of their medication, without having to increase the dosage. "Emphasizing diet changes in general can boost the success rate of statins, while providing additional health benefits and a possible alternative for those for whom drugs are not a viable option," Dr. Jenkins adds. Most exciting is that these two together show more beneficial LDL cholesterol changes than doubling the dose of the statin medication. Talk with your doctor if you want to follow the plan, as your medication may need to be adjusted."
- Elaine Magee, Food Synergy: Unleash Hundreds of Powerful Healing Food Combinations to Fight Disease and Live Well (Get the book.)

"Eating smoked foods, some aged cheeses, and certain other foods while taking the full dosage of an MAOI can be life-threatening, because this mixture can cause your blood pressure to go very high. Obviously, when I explain this to someone who has unsuccessfully tried many other antidepressants, the person is leery of trying this type of drug. Based on the similarity between atypical depression and CFS with depression, however, MAOIs can be worth trying in certain cases—as long as the patient is in the hands of a psychiatrist with experience in using this class of drugs."

"If you suck zinc lozenges to prevent a cold, pay attention to the dosage in each lozenge. Do not take more than 30 mg in a given day. As I said earlier, don't take megadose supplements (i.e., vitamins and minerals) or amino acid supplements. This approach reinforces the idea of "taking something" to "fix it," which is precisely the kind of behavior you want to replace. You may have used drugs, alcohol, sugar or French bread to help you "fix" your "crazy" feelings. Whether a person is in drug, alcohol or sugar detox, the brain is in a vulnerable state during the transition to being drug-free."

"These markers can be used to identify the dosage or concentration of a nutritional factor necessary to achieve a clinically meaningful response or to define optimum nutrient status (Table 1). Unfortunately, for many nutritional factors, the first limiting biochemical system is unknown or not readily measured or accessible in humans. A general functional index is less specific but may be more directly linked to the pathogenesis of disease or ill health. Often a panel of markers, rather than one specific measure, provides a better picture."

"Similar to the 120-mg orlistat studies, significantly greater weight loss was observed with an orlistat dosage of 60 mg plus diet compared to placebo plus diet in overweight and obese patients [106-108]. Weight losses in the range of 4.8 to 9.7% were reported with the 60-mg OTC dose at 1 year. E. Medications in Phase III Clinical Trials with No Approval 1."

"Pancreatic enzymes should be taken with all foods and beverages, including breast milk and infant formula. The dosage for enzymes should be individualized based on the patient's diet, degree of PI, intestinal pH, and GI anatomy. In clinical practice, two approaches are used to calculate enzyme doses: 1. Based on the amount of fat in the diet, that is, units of lipase per gram of fat per meal. This method is more physiological than the weight-based method described next. Current CFF guidelines recommend 500-4000 lipase units per gram of fat per meal [70, 71]."

"Despite their different uses, dosage schedules, and even routes of administration, they cluster at the very top of the list for producing hostility and aggression. This is convincing and seemingly irrefutable evidence that these kinds of agents can cause violence. Another benzodiazepine, the very long-acting Valium, came in fourth—giving the benzodiazepines an across-the-board victory, finishing in first, second, third, and fourth place."

"In all five cases, the akathisia and the suicidality disappeared when the drug was stopped or reduced in dosage. In one case, a rechallenge with an increased dose of Prozac reproduced the syndrome. The researchers concluded, "Our cases appear to confirm that certain subjects experience akathisia while taking fluoxetine [Prozac] and that this effect is dose-related in the individual patient." They declared that akathisia "can apparently be associated with suicidal ideation, sometimes of a ruminative intensity."

"Depending on dosage, they can be very potent and linger in the body for a long time. Birth control pills work by keeping estrogen at such a falsely high level that the body is fooled into responding as if it were pregnant. Therefore, ovulation does not occur. Chapter 3 addresses the dangers of synthetic hormones in greater detail. why the symptoms are often misdiagnosed When Sylvia in Chapter 1 first complained of the "love-handle blues," her previous doctor responded by giving her a prescription for antidepressants."

"Her doctor upped the dosage to 40 mg a day and Barbara felt better again. But over time the bad feelings started creeping back in. Barbara's brain was downregulating in response to the increase in the serotonin hits, so the Prozac now had less of an effect. Here's a picture to show you how downregulation works: Receiving Sending Receiving Sending Cell *~ Cell Cell Cell More Neurotransmitters Fewer Receptors Upregulation The brain-chemistry balancing system works in the other direction as well."
