"When I take certain vitamins in larger doses I feel better." That may be true; the good feeling comes from stimulation, just like when people who drink coffee are stimulated by the caffeine. You feel better because the body has increased metabolism in order to eliminate the supplement, which in that form and quantity, is toxic. Over time, such doses cause more deficiencies and wear the body down. The same stimulative situation applies to some herbal supplements and treatments. The body cannot use, and does not accept, isolated nutrients."

"A variety of doses of 4-NP or of estrogen were administered to mice genetically engineered for increased susceptibility to breast cancer. A high percentage of mice given 4-NP developed breast cancer over a thirty-two-week period, while mice given equivalent doses of estrogen did not. This study concluded that "Long-term exposure to 4-NP could leave individuals at a significantly increased risk of developing breast cancer" (21). In 2003, the Norwegian government banned "most" uses of phenol ethoxylates."

"The researchers then decide upon the doses for both the new and comparison drug(s). Companies can design studies in which the doses of the drugs being compared are not equivalent. For example, Nexium, the "purple pill" for gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), is chemically almost identical to the acid-blocking drug Prilosec. Both are manufactured by AstraZeneca. In 2001, the patent was about to expire on Prilosec."

"In other words, treatment of moderate to very severe pain after knee replacement surgery with preemptive doses of OxyContin is superior to treatment with preemptive doses of nothing. Based on this study, the drug manufacturer earned the right to claim that treating post-knee replacement surgery patients with OxyContin significantly decreases their pain, facilitates their rehabilitation, and shortens the time spent in rehabilitation centers."

"Both Bifidobacteria and Lactobacilli have been administered orally at daily doses of 9 billion (9 x 109) CFUs. Children (six to 60 months) have been given a mix of B. infantis and L. acidophilus at doses of 6 billion (6 x 109) CFUs per day. Both studies of oral probiotic therapy were effective in children suffering from diarrhea and no side effects were reported. There is insufficient evidence to conclude that all probiotics are safe for all infants. A review of the science to date and a discussion with a qualified health practioner is important when considering probiotics for young infants."

"In 68,000 patients studied to date," wrote the editor of JAMA in 2005, "there is no compelling evidence that higher doses of vitamin E reduce cardiovascular risk or cancer; there are even some hints that vitamin E, in excess of normal daily intake, may slightly increase the risk of ischemic events or of heart failure."8 Added to this is the judgment of the editors of the Annals of Internal Medicine: "We think that high-dosage vitamin E may increase overall mortality. Therefore we believe that high-risk and healthy people should avoid this vitamin at high doses."

"So at the tip of the iceberg you have the very obvious lead poisoning in children who are exposed to high doses, that results in kids who come into the emergency room with pulmonary convulsions. But we also learned that at lower levels lead is also toxic, that it can cause brain damage, that it can reduce children's IQ, that it can mess up their behavior, that it can shorten their attention span, can increase the risk that they're going to drop out of high school, increase the risk that they're going to end up in prison."

"The high doses of steroids make people crave foods high in sodium—Big Macs, fries, that sort of thing. They'll crave something familiar and comforting, and unfortunately for most of them that's what McDonald's is." But all too often, these "comfort foods" only make the problem worse. "Obesity," Sencer said, "is coming to dwarf cancer as a childhood health problem, and this is a huge concern, since obesity sets kids up for just about every adult health problem you can think of later in life. If we could improve one thing across the board," she went on, "I'd pick nutrition."

"Frederick vom Saal of the University of Missouri-Columbia, fetuses and newborns exposed to BPA even at low doses have a higher likelihood of developing prostate and breast cancer later in life. So make an effort to reduce your child's contact with BPA by choosing healthier baby bottles. BPA-free bottles include Evenflo glass bottles, which are available at major retail stores and select supermarkets. When Wyatt was a baby, glass bottles were a lot harder to find than they are now. I ended up ordering two dozen from the only source that stocked them, and I never broke a single one."

"Compounded hormone doses are individualized and allow you to change the dose as you need to, based on how you feel. The Natural Hormone Makeover outlines ten steps to improve your health using natural hormones safely. Take a hard look at yourself to decide if your sleep, energy, and sense of well-being are as good as they could be, as good as you want them to be. Don't wait until you are having physical problems from hormone decline."

"Vitamin D is another fat-soluble vitamin with the potential for toxicity at excessive doses. It can be toxic in adults who take more than 100,000 i.u. daily for several months, according to the Merck Manual. Infants can suffer toxic reactions to 3,000 i.u. per day, if taken every day for an extended period. I usually recommend no more than approximately 800 i.u. per day for children. Similarly to vitamin A, I monitor vitamin D levels periodically to ensure that levels are within a safe, normal range."

"Recommended doses of ubiquinol are 50 to 300 mg daily. Achieving comparable blood levels with ubiquinone, even formulations that use enhanced absorption technologies, requires far greater dosages. French Melon Extract Superoxide dismutase (SOD) is a naturally occurring enzyme that is a potent antioxidant, helping to protect against free radicals bent on wreaking havoc on your cells. It is especially active against the superoxide radical, one of the most destructive reactive molecules in nature and a significant cause of oxidative stress and inflammation."

"When all of the scientific literature is considered, it is easy to conclude that there is an advantage to taking several probiotic strains at high doses to treat pouchitis. Researchers also suggest that probiotics may reduce the risk of developing pouchitis in patients undergoing ulcerative colitis surgery. Of note, probiotics are not effective in inducing remission from pouchitis. Remission can be induced by antibiotic use. Clinical trials have shown that remission can be effectively maintained with probiotic use."

"These studies suggest that high doses of multi-species probiotics are effective in decreasing inflammation in people with inflammatory bowel disease. Pouchitis, a complication experienced in patients with an ileoanal pouch, can maintain remission with probiotics. The use of probiotics at the same time as antibiotics may be of benefit to patients with pouchitis. High-dosage, multi-strain products appear to be the best choice for those with pouchitis. Prebiotics help make positive changes to the microflora in the intestines."

"Larger doses increase the production of energy compounds by 340 to 430 percent, depending on the type of muscle tested, and improve the salvage of energy compounds by up to 650 percent. Most amazing is that when muscles are supplemented with D-ribose, they continue to add to their energy stores even while they actively work! Until this study was reported, it was thought that muscle energy stores were only refilled in muscles at rest. An adequate dose of D-ribose usually results in symptom improvement very quickly—sometimes within a few days."

"But, as the case of Lucy clearly teaches us, some patients may not respond to such doses. They need more. When we have critically ill patients like Lucy, we ask ourselves several questions when considering dosage: • Will the dosage sufficiently raise a patient's CoQIO blood level? • Does the CoQIO supplement the patient takes actually deliver the amount stated on the label? Is it a form readily absorbed? • How do I know the patient's level of CoQIO without drawing blood levels? An adequate CoQIO dosage typically yields symptom improvement."

"We often recommend larger doses for patients, depending on their Lp(a) and CRP levels, and our estimate of their degree of arterial inflammation. For best results, split the dosages into two or three servings throughout the day. If you are forgetful, it is better to take 1,000 mg in one dose rather than to forget subsequent dosages. Some skeptics maintain that more than 200 mg per day is worthless. It just creates "expensive urine," they say."

"Pregnancy, one of our most important responsibilities, is a miraculous, mysterious series of events controlled and fueled by high doses of estrogen and progesterone. A closer look at pregnancy will help you understand the importance of sex hormones, how they work together, and how problems can arise. Pregnancy involves millions and millions of cells dividing at high speed inside the body to create an entirely new human being."

"Compounded hormone doses vary from individual to individual. They are individually tailored by physicians who spend years studying and training and whose qualifications and training are regulated by medical boards. It's not the FDA's job to oversee doctors. Compounded hormones prescribed by doctors are produced by compounding pharmacists who are regulated by pharmaceutical boards (see chapter 7)."

"A reasonable daily dosage is in the range of 10 to 40 pellets, in divided doses, depending upon the patient and circumstances. SUPPLEMENTS FOR TARGETED SUBSETS OF PATIENTS Although all patients must take their own unique combinations of supplements, tailored to their own needs and their own metabolisms, there are certain subsets of patients who may have somewhat similar supplement programs. These programs may include a core group of supplements that are targeted to impact specific conditions, such as inflammation, or immune dysfunction."
- Kenneth Bock, Healing the New Childhood Epidemics: Autism, ADHD, Asthma, and Allergies: The Groundbreaking Program for the 4-A Disorders (Get the book.)

"Studies that looked at lower doses showed no decrease in fracture rates. This emphasizes the need to normalize vitamin D levels rather than providing some universal dosing for vitamin D. Protein for Good Bones The most important minerals are calcium, phosphorus, and magnesium, but without the protein matrix that's the infrastructure of bone, there would be nothing to mineralize. This underscores the importance of getting the right levels of protein every day of the week. Dr."

"The hormone melatonin at doses of .3 milligrams to 6 milligrams is given at bedtime, when indicated, to restore circadian rhythm in place of benzodiazepines, which can depress cognitive function." 6. MENTAL TRAINING. Nowhere more than in the brain is the old adage, "Use it or lose it," more appropriate. In fact, Einstein had a fairly normal brain when it came to his neurons. However, what was extremely unusual was the structure of his brain, rich in supporting glial cells. He was the Michael Jordan of mental athletes."

"In fact, in 2005, researchers at Johns Hopkins reported that doses of vitamin E in excess of 400 milligrams have serious risks, and may be associated with a higher overall risk of mortality.11 Other experts recommend eating antioxidant-rich diets full of fruits and vegetables, since it is theorized that such antioxidants as vitamins E and C and selenium may have the capacity to neutralize free radicals by donating their electrons to help with stability. An abundance of antioxidants, it is held, may preempt the chain reaction of damage to living cells in the body."

"I see patients more frequently when I am adjusting the doses of medications. However, with responsible patients and caregivers a fair amount can be handled over the phone. A specialist should send a note to the referring physician or others, but should ask your permission to share this information. facing the worst-case scenario What do you do if you receive a diagnosis of Alzheimer's or MCI on your initial or subsequent visits to the doctor?

"There was a small spike in the popularity of ginseng after it was reported that rats fed high doses of the herb learned the layout of a maze quicker than rats in a control group. The theory was that ginseng acted as a cholinergic agent, increasing levels of acetylcholine in the brain. These findings were not consistently replicated, and since we lack data on the long-term safety of ginseng ingestion, it is difficult to recommend the herb clinically.

"Air Force periodontal specialist, confirmed that not only did he, too, find coenzyme Qi$ deficiencies in patients with gum disease, but that oral doses of the supplement promoted healing. It was not until 1974 that large enough quantities of coenzyme Q10 could be harvested to support organized clinical trials in large groups of people. Scientists in Japan perfected the industrial technology to produce pure coenzyme Q10 in sufficient quantities for distribution. It was at this point that coenzyme Q10 gained widespread acceptance in Japan and became more available for those with heart disease."

"These patients must be given supplemental doses of coenzyme Qi0 to offset the depleting effects of these cholesterol-lowering agents. Moreover, when considering the free-radical oxidation mechanism in arteriosclerosis, a decline in coenzyme Qio reserves may also adversely affect the course of the disease despite optimal reduction of LDL cholesterol. Certainly, the adverse metabolic effects of these drugs require further investigation. Acetyl CoA ! HMG-CoA | ? HMG-CoA reductase Mevalonic prophosphate S \ CoEnzymeQIO T Dolichols Squalene Cholesterol Figure 4.3."

"Note: For a severely impaired immune system, as in cancer, even higher doses of coenzyme Qi0 may be required. Fifteen mg of Q-Gel softgel capsules, a water-soluble form of Q10, is the equivalent of about 50 mg of standard coenzyme Q10. Once a therapeutic effect is obtained, that is, there is improved well-being, lowered blood pressure, improved shortness of breath, better gum tissues, and so on, the maintenance dose may be adjusted. For many cardiac conditions, especially CHF and cardiomyopathy, I have observed that the therapeutic dose must be maintained or symptoms will return."

"Nicotinic acid can decrease triglycerides and raise HDL cholesterol, but this requires high doses (typically 1.5 to 3 g daily), which can cause flushing and liver toxicity. (As a general precaution, anyone who takes more than 2 g of niacin daily or more than 500 mg at the same time as statins should undergo periodic liver function tests.) Nicotinic acid may also worsen glycemic control. Nicotinamide may be effective in supporting blood sugar levels and may prevent the development of diabetes in certain high-risk groups, although trial results so far have been mixed."
