Quotes about Dose from the world's top natural health / natural living authors

"We doctors tend to remember the dose, timing, and side effects of only two or three drugs in each class. The drug companies knew this, of course, and were willing to give me a steady supply of samples in order to make sure that I was familiar with their drug instead of a competitor's. With free samples to give out to people who needed them, I felt like Robin Hood. And they (I now realize) felt like very effective drug reps. You may wonder why 80 to 90 percent of doctors—with all their training and clinical experience—are willing to listen to drug reps at all."

"She was wrong on both counts. The dose of her diuretics (fluid pills) needed to be adjusted frequently to maintain the proper fluid balance. Retention of extra fluid could have caused her to go back into pulmonary edema, and even a small amount of fluid buildup in her feet and ankles for just a few days caused her unusually thin skin to break down, leaving painful skin ulcers that took months to heal. In the opposite direction, pulling too much fluid out of her body with diuretics would have prevented her kidneys from functioning properly."

"An article by the same group of researchers published in JAMA in 2001 showed that a daily dose of 40 mg of Pravachol significantly reduced CRP levels. But remember: reduction of CRP is a surrogate end point (not clinically important in and of itself), and statins have never been shown in randomized clinical trials to significantly reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease in women without heart disease."

"Prilosec 20 mg without a prescription costs about one-eighth as much. COMPARING SOMETHING WITH NOTHING One might think that a new drug earns its place among preferred therapies only after it has been shown to be superior, or at least equal, to the best available therapies. Often this is not the case. Expensive brand-name drugs are frequently tested against a placebo (meaning no therapy) even when effective alternative therapies are already in use."

"Fallacy: Everything causes cancer if the dose is high enough, so the enormous doses used in animal tests don't prove anything. Fact: Most chemicals do not cause cancer, no matter how high the dose. In addition, most of the chemicals studied that do cause cancer at high doses also cause cancer at lower doses.5 While high-dose animal tests may be questioned on ethical grounds, they are still the most reliable method currently available for determining whether a chemical is likely to cause cancer in humans."

"However, if someone with volume-mediated hypertension does not respond to a low dose of a diuretic, prescribing a higher dose is the right thing to do. In contrast, in those whose hypertension is not mediated by volume, a higher dose should be avoided because it confers a higher risk of adverse effects with little benefit to blood pressure control. This is another reason why recognizing when emotional factors are integral to the hypertension can have an important impact on drug treatment."

"Toxicologists define a lethal dose (LD) as the dose needed to kill 50 percent of test animals (LD 50); it therefore corresponds to the median lethal dose. These researchers estimated gingival tissue to have 7.2 log LD 50 units (about 16 million lethal doses) per gram of tissue, and dental pulp to have 5.6 log LD 50 units (400,000 lethal doses). In vCJD, lymphoreticular systems may have 4 to 7 log LD 50 units. 39 A. Smith etal, "Contaminated Dental Instruments," Journal of Hospital Infection 51 (2002): 233-235. 40 Stephen R."

"According to the FDA's investigators, Upjohn sought approval of the drug at one-milligram doses, even though research indicated this was a dangerously high dose; withheld from the FDA data of severe adverse reactions to Halcion; and sought approval for long-term prescribing of the drug, "even though available evidence indicated that long-term use was both dangerous and medically untenable."

"No matter what the dose, the men's total cholesterol, triglycerides and ratio of total cholesterol to "good" HDL cholesterol declined. Also, the higher the dose of omega-3's, the lower the numbers dropped: Total cholesterol fell 11 percent in the men taking the two-gram dose of omega-3's but dove 22 percent in those taking the nine-gram dose. The men's levels of HDL increased as well, with larger improvements as doses rose. At the Oregon Health Sciences University in Portland, six healthy men alternated between one of two diets that contained varying amounts of total and saturated fat."

"Vitamin E at a dose of only two hundred milligrams per day reverses EFA-induced immune suppression, even in people taking high doses of fish oil.75 Combined treatment with vitamin E and fish oil is especially beneficial for the function of phagocytes. The optimum dose of vitamin E for improving immune function is probably in the range of two hundred to four hundred milligrams per day.76 Higher doses are considered safe,77 but I don't recommend their routine use because higher doses may actually impair the activity of phagocytes. The vitamin E levels of U.S."

"Fact: Most chemicals do not cause cancer, no matter how high the dose. In addition, most of the chemicals studied that do cause cancer at high doses also cause cancer at lower doses.5 While high-dose animal tests may be questioned on ethical grounds, they are still the most reliable method currently available for determining whether a chemical is likely to cause cancer in humans. If lower, more realistic doses were used, scientists would have to use thousands of times more laboratory animals for each experiment, and nobody wants—or could afford—that."

"For example, Celebrex at a dose of 400 mg per day does not significantly increase the hazard for death or other cardiovascular events. But at 800 mg per day, the hazard increased threefold. That observation gained the attention of the fda, the mainstream medical journals, and the lay press. However, the reader of Worried Sick is wary of the expression of a result as a relative risk. Of the 671 patients on the 800 mg daily dose, twenty-three suffered death from cardiovascular causes or a nonfatal heart attack, stroke, or heart failure."

"For people with genetic predispositions to iron overload and those with alcoholic cirrhosis, the safe dose may be lower. Higher doses may be prescribed for pregnant women. There has been some association between the intake of heme iron and the risk of heart attacks. When iron stores are high, heme iron absorption is not as effectively limited as is the absorption of non-heme iron. This may lead to a higher risk of heart attacks because of the free radical action of excess iron on LDL."

"An email from the Director of the Office of New Drugs explained that FDA was "not contemplating" a warning against use of high dose Vioxx and that Dr. Graham's conclusions should be changed.110 In mid-August of 2004, despite the evidence associating low and high dose Vioxx with significantly increased risks of heart attack, FDA announced that it approved the drug for use in children with rheumatoid arthritis."

"Many users die, however, from a dose that should not be fatal to them. Shepard Siegel and some fellow researchers have suggested that the failure of tolerance on the day of the overdose is a function of context. In an experiment with rats they found that if a large dose of a drug is given in the presence of cues that are associated with sublethal doses, the rats were more likely to survive than those given the same dose in a situation not associated with the drug at an earlier time. The tolerance of both groups of rats was lowered when the drug was given in an unfamiliar environment."

"In 2006, over 62 million CT or Cat scans were performed in the United States, which has greatly increased the personal radiation dose experienced by the average U.S. resident. The radiation dose from a CT scan is 50 times to 100 times larger than from a conventional x-ray. A surge in the use of CT scans in the last 25 years has led to millions of patients per year being unnecessarily exposed to dangerous radiation that increases their risk of cancer, according to a paper published in the New England Journal of Medicine. There are no harmless MRIs or mammograms."

"Prevention and treatment of iron deficiency may include iron supplementation, with a recommended therapeutic dose of lOOmg/day of elemental iron for 2 to 3 months. However, the management plan should include dietary counseling to increase the intake of bioavailable iron and appropriate strategies to reduce any unwarranted iron loss. Many athletes self-prescribe iron supplements; indeed, mass supplementation of athletes with iron has been fashionable at various times."

"While about 70 percent of a dose of 5-HTP taken orally is delivered to the bloodstream for transport to the brain for conversion to serotonin, only about 3 percent of a dose of L-trytophan is eventually converted into serotonin. þ5-HTP passes into the brain immediately, while tryptophan must compete with other proteins to be transported across the blood-brain barrier. þ5-HTP raises levels of other brain neurotransmitters, including melatonin, dopamine, and norepinephrine. L-tryptophan does not have this effect."

"This also warrants a strong dose of healing energy from you. Remarkably, as soon as you learn to feel and develop the energy bubble, you can do a meaningful amount of healing work right away. Think of what a treat this will be for your spouse, child, best friend, or even your next-door neighbor the next time she mentions she has a stiff neck. You'll be the most popular person on your block in no time!"

"She told me that she felt fine, and that she had in fact felt so good the previous evening that she had forgotten to take her nightly dose of medication. She woke up that morning feeling even better, and had not taken painkillers the entire day. It was now twenty-four hours since her last dose. And she was walked around the whole day without once resorting to her crutches. There are hundreds of such stories in the world of PSYCH-K."

"However, interpreting what you see and knowing how to treat it will require some additional knowledge and a huge dose of compassion. In this simple example, you might give your friend the name and number of a good orthopedist or physical therapist, but you would also invite her out for lunch and a pedicure, boost her self-esteem, and venture to ask her why she insists on making so many sacrifices for others at her own expense. Her answer would indicate what you should do next."

"Tingling indicates an area of congested energy that requires a dose of your healing energy. A significant amount of congested energy of the type associated with extreme pain might make your hand buzz, perhaps even giving you a feeling of pins and needles in your hand and up your arm. This is natural and instructive, as it indicates where pain is concentrated. These sensations are a sign that you should deliver healing energy to this area until the sensations (tingling, buzzing, pins and needles, and so on) dissipate. If the buzzing goes all the way up to your elbow, however, pull away."

"Prothrombin time or, ideally, PIVKA-II levels should be checked in patients with liver disease, and vitamin K dose titrated as indicated. Adapted from Borowitz et al. [70]. 3. Age-Specific Recommendations a. Preschool Age Children in this age group have developed self-feeding skills, food preferences, and dietary habits. Food intake and physical activity vary from day to day. For these reasons, close monitoring of dietary habits, caloric intake, and growth velocity are important. Routinely adding calories to table foods may help with maintaining optimal growth at this stage."

"People should not get MMR vaccine who have ever had a life-threatening allergic reaction to gelatin, the antibiotic neomycin, or to a previous dose of MMR vaccine. ?People who are moderately or severely ill at the time the shot is scheduled should usually wait until they recover before getting MMR vaccine. ?Pregnant women should wait to get MMR vaccine until after they have given birth.

"That's many many times the 2-50 mg a day dose that makes any sense. There is evidence that at low dosage levels DHEA works to block androgen receptor sites in the body—making them unavailable to the more potent androgens—thus serving to protect your prostate. is no evidence that, in fact, your body converts any Wild Yam into DHEA. All benefits related to Wild Yam appear to be from its phytoestrogen effect. Pregnenolone Pregnenolone is the ultimate hormone precursor. Virtually every hormone in the body can be produced by your body, as required, from pregnenolone."

"These numbers only count drugs that are prescribed correctly and at the right dose. • Not included are patients who are given the wrong drugs, or who are given those drugs at the wrong dosage or in the wrong combination. • And these numbers do not include the patients who have fatal reactions to the drugs, but whose deaths are mistakenly attributed to other causes. • Nor do these numbers include the patients whose cause of death is deliberately obscured to protect the physicians and hospitals involved."
