"But before we can discuss the role it plays in certain chronic degenerative diseases, it's necessary to take another look at the inflammatory process, this time focusing in on what occurs when inflammation becomes chronic. When the Inflammatory Response Becomes Chronic The inflammatory response is initiated by the release of tissue hormones called histamines and blood proteins called kinins, which cause blood vessel dilation, increased blood flow, and tissue swelling."

"If there is a weakness somewhere in the body, the immune system will attack that location. inflammation will move right into the unhealthy area to attempt healing. Macrophages (a class of white blood cells that hunt invaders) may act as a secondary line of defense, attacking CICs in the bloodstream or in the lungs. If CICs are not removed, they may trigger a cascade of events that lead to multiple symptoms, and sometimes tissue damage. People who suffer from nutritional deficiencies have a greater risk of developing CICs that defy the body's attempts to eliminate them."

"Signals from the brain set in motion a cascade of events that cause the circulatory system to deliver more oxygen and vital nutrients to the site of the cut, while the immune system creates a temporary state of healthy inflammation to both speed healing and ward off potential pathogens that might otherwise infect the wound. This entire process happens automatically, without the need for an outside influence to set it into motion."

"Inflammation can cause an elevated PSA. • inflammation. A number of things can cause the prostate to be inflamed. Suppose you recently had some other urinary tract procedure, say, for kidney stones. This could easily irritate the prostate, cause inflammation, and elevate PSA. • Rectal examination. For a long time the only prostate test was performed by the physician inserting his finger into the rectum and feeling the prostate. This procedure itself can stimulate release of more PSA into the blood and cause an elevated test."

"In this chapter, you will learn all about the SierraSil mineral deposit, including how it was discovered and the scientific research that has proven its efficacy—without adverse side effects. But first, consider the following: Why does it typically take so long for the American public, as well as their doctors, to become aware of the benefits that nutritional supplements can provide, while there is near-instant popularity of new pharmaceutical drugs as soon as they enter the marketplace? Let's begin this chapter by taking a closer look at this disturbing truth."

"Red Eye The Causes About every case of red eye fits into one or several of the following categories: inflammation of the eyelids (blepharitis); conjunctivitis (see entry for it elsewhere in the text); inflammation of the cornea (keratitis); inflammation of tissues overlying the sclera (episcleritis) and inflammation of the sclera (scleritis); inflammation of the iris (anterior uveitis); glaucoma; hemorrhage in the anterior chamber of the eye (hyphema); infection of the eyesock (orbital disease)."

"It contains high levels of antioxidants and helps to reduce inflammation, which is, as we know, the root cause of many serious illnesses: asthma, arthritis, even cancer. If we can reduce the inflammation enough, then we can more easily live with those diseases. You don't have to gulp down huge quantities of noni juice to receive its benefits: one ounce a day, or even less, is usually enough to obtain noni's health benefits. You might have to get noni juice from a distributor (www.nonihealthinfo.com, www.tahitiannoni.com, and www.rawenergy ."

"Collectively, the symptoms are known as inflammation. Sometimes the inflammatory tesponse gets out of control, and the border troops run wild, killing both the patient and the invader; overproduction of the cytokine called Tumor Necrosis Factor-Alpha will push the inflammation over the line into septic shock, or even death. But when it works properly, the white blood cells not only engulf and kill most of the invading bacteria,* but convey them to the lymphatic system, the courier road along which the immune system's field armies can march to decisive battle."

"Step 2. inflammation occurs in the artery. Step 3. LDL cholesterol becomes oxidized and flows through the bloodstream. Step 4. Plaque from cholesterol sticks to the lining of the arteries. Step 5. Arteries constrict, and plaque ruptures and breaks off the artery wall. A blood clot forms. Step 6. Arrhythmia, or a chaotic heartbeat, interrupts or stops the flow of blood and oxygen to the heart and body."

"Simply put, cells are not using energy correctly, particularly in the joint capsules. inflammation results, and ovet time cartilage and tissue begin to break down. Hence, the Cell Driver Infoceutical and to some extent also the Source Driver Infoceutical are primary correctors for the bioenergetic links to arthritic conditions, although the Energetic Star 6 Infoceutical, described in the following section, may prove beneficial as well."

"Modern fats are primarily composed of omega-6s, which stimulate inflammation and depression. Part Two DIET EVOLUTION Chapter 4 THE DIET AT A GLANCE Welcome to the Diet Evolution program. This chapter will provide a brief overview of the three phases of the program and lists of what I call "Friendly Foods," "Unfriendly Foods," and finally "Foods to Banish Initially," which you will avoid for a while and can later add back in moderation."

"His blood sugar, inflammation, cholesterol, and blood pressure measurements are now normal and he is off all medications. Now that he has trimmed his beard, he does look like me! His faith in a higher power is stronger than ever: he's convinced that's who created the genetic computer program I taught him about. In any event, we both agree that it's a beautiful design. rated fats, good carbs, bad carbs, or sneaking books into restaurants to check the calorie count in rutabaga mousse (it's pretty high, actually). Instead, my program has just a few simple rules."

"When her blood samples were analyzed, as I expected, they were perfect: low cholesterol, no evidence of inflammation. An active businesswoman, Michelle is now 96 and still shows no signs of aging. Why would she? Her longevity genes are activated, preserving her from harm. Rather than being in survival mode, she exists in what I call "perfect efficiency," which is what I hope to attain-and the same goal I have for you. Live long and prosper, Michelle. Is this you more like you? You weigh more than you did in high school. Perhaps a lot more."

"By eating these "beige" fats, they become a bundle of inflammation. So, how do you restore the balance? It's actually simpler than you think. In the Teardown phase, you have kept the main sources of omega-6 fats-"beige" and "white" foods-out of sight. Evolving our diet back to how people ate about a century ago restores the normal balance of 1:1 between omega-3 and omega-6 fats. Now you understand why I don't limit your consumption of olive oil and keep pushing greens, as well as recommend you eat grass-fed beef, free-range chickens, and wild-caught fish."

"Withania extracts have anti-inflammatory activity in rats with acute inflammation induced by egg albumin and against subacute inflammation induced by formalin. The dried alcoholic extract reduced granulation tissue formed in response to subcutaneous implantation of cotton wool pellets. In rats, alcoholic extracts of W. somnifera leaves showed slight activity against acute inflammation but were strongly anti-inflammatory against subacute inflammation. The activity of extract administered in a dose of Ig/kg was equivalent to that of 10 mg/kg of hydrocortisone and 50 mg/kg phenylbutazone."

"By removing excess fibrin, these proteases reduce inflammation and the risk of inappropriate blood clots, which greatly limits the risk of heart disease or stroke. By some estimates more than $50 million has been spent researching the benefits of these animal-sourced enzyme products. The evidence of their efficacy, in the form of studies, patents, pharmaceutical drugs, and credible research, is indisputable. Though there are obvious benefits to the animal-sourced enzyme approach, there are also some potential problems."

"Another theory is that inflammation on a microscopic level produces this same immune reaction. Still other theories place the blame on viruses, bacteria, toxins, or heavy metals. What all of these theories have in common is the idea that the immune system is looking for something it cannot find, something that does not exist or exists for no apparent reason (something that poses no real threat). Another common link is that protease can act on many of the elements that are suspected causes of the immune system attacking the body."

"In fact, quite surprisingly, a combination of both was associated with the lowest levels of inflammation. Lower the risk of heart disease with fish and olive oil. Given that fish oil has been shown to decrease the risk of cardiovascular disease, while olive oil has demonstrated cholesterol-lowering effects, some researchers have tested the two together to determine if any synergy exists. While some trials have shown no effect, others have had favorable results with lowering LDL cholesterol and triglycerides, so the outlook is positive."

"Once inside the synovial fluid, these foreign invaders can cause joint pain, inflammation, and stiffness, otherwise known as arthritis. Some people also experience a toxic reaction to specific foods like bell peppers, tomatoes, and eggplant, triggering arthritic pain. Accumulation of heavy metals and toxins within the body tissues also has been linked to numerous pain conditions. Although the exact cause of fibromyalgia is still unknown, toxicity of the body from chemicals, pesticides, air pollution, and toxic elements are believed to be a big causative factor."

"When these cells stick to artery walls and cause inflammation, plaque deposits build up and narrow the passageways where blood flows, leading to "hardening of the arteries." (continued on page 102) While getting more fiber is a good reason to reach for that packet of oats in the morning, there's a lot more to oats, nutritionally speaking. Half a cup will give you a nutritional boost beyond the 4 grams of fiber. You also get some protein; smart fats (from monounsat-urated and polyunsaturated fat); and a host of vitamins, minerals, and phytochemicals to boot!"

"Excessive body poisons create an inflammation of the inner lining of skin pores. This makes the pores swell, narrowing their openings, even to a point where they become blocked. Oozing can develop, which may lead to eczema and psoriasis. Soaps dry the skin, while creams and medicated ointments clog the pores, reducing their ability to carry out the elimination it is attempting. We are working with the body when we keep the skin clean and free of creams that alter the pH of the skin surface and congest the pores. Research done by Dr. Nicholas Perricone36 and Dr."

"It is believed that much of the effectiveness of many lipid-lowering drugs is their ability to reduce inflammation, not fat. Everyone needs fat in their diet, but how much you need and how much your body makes are two different things. Our liver produces most of the cholesterol in our bodies; our diet contributes only about 4 percent. When your diet is low in cholesterol, your liver is programmed to make more. This is one reason that low-cholesterol diets don't lower cholesterol long-term. Healthy cholesterol levels may actually vary in men and women. What is good for men may not be for women."

"Polymorphic genetic tests can determine if you are prone to blood clots or excess 4-OH or 16-OH estrone production, if you have a tendency to low glutathione or other antioxidants, or if you are prone to inflammation in your vessels or a resistance to vitamin D. This is truly preventive medicine. In the ideal world of the future, all women will understand their genetic tendencies and use hormones and supplements to correct their inherited shortcomings. At present such testing is not covered by insurance, but it is a once-in-a-lifetime test, which doesn't ever need to be repeated."

"Silent inflammation is an important factor in the development of sarcopenia. Eating the Mediterranean diet has been shown to reduce silent inflammation as evidenced by a reduction in C-reactive protein levels. The most important step to preventing sarcopenia is to follow a regular strength-training program. Dietary protein is essential in supporting muscle growth and fighting sarcopenia. The best choice for protein supplementation is whey protein."

"Repeated applications of biofield therapy can reduce inflammation, heal problems that have been resistant to traditional medical approaches, and heal even the most stubborn, life-threatening conditions. Think about what this means to you. If you invest some of yourself now in learning the technique, you will have a tremendous ability to make yourself and others feel dramatically better. If you or someone you love is in any level of physical distress, you have within your mind the ability to help heal it."

"Several of these functions specifically protect against processes known to contribute to atherosclerosis, including inhibiting protein kinase C activity and smooth muscle cell proliferation, inhibiting cell adhesion and platelet aggregation, counteracting inflammation, and enhancing bioavailability of nitric oxide to improve endothelium-dependent vasodilator function [79-81]. Vitamin E also may improve insulin-mediated glucose uptake, thus possibly decreasing risk for type 2 diabetes, a condition that also contributes to atherosclerosis [82]. 2."
