"Suggestions, such as take time to eat, chew your food thoroughly, increase your water intake, increase your intake of vegetables, increase your intake of grains, eat ripe fruit in season, decrease your intake of animal products, or drink minimal fluids with your meals, can go a long way toward improving low-grade feelings of fatigue or indigestion. • Facing Facts Finally, creating awareness through some non-challenging and non-confrontational facts can serve to increase awareness and change counterproductive behaviors without threatening, judging, or embarrassing a motivated individual."

"While some health authorities recommend that the fat intake be limited to 20 or 25 percent of the total intake of calories, there are other areas of the world, such as Asia and Africa, where the fat intake is as little as 10 percent of the total intake and the people seem to be in good health. At the other extreme, the Eskimo's diet will include a very large percentage of fat intake without apparent harmful effect. The most sensible and reasonable plan is to balance the fat intake with the needs of the body."

"There are only two proven ways to reduce cholesterol and hypertension: (1) with powerful drugs (see chapter 5), taken over a period of time, which have significant side effects; and (2) modifications of behavioral risk factors such as smoking, alcohol intake and exercise habits, or dietary changes, particularly decreasing the intake of fatty foods and sodium, or to change life habits with a resulting stress reduction. The lessons for this book are twofold: (1) drugs treats the sign, not the underlying cause of a problem."

"My diet is still low on carbohydrates, but I've taken care to balance increases in fat intake with increases in protein intake. I like to call it the "healthy Atkins diet"—in contrast to the less-healthy original—so don't expect to see me recommending that you eat tons of butter and bacon. I have to hasten to say that I have not done any controlled studies on the efficacy of the Natelson diet, but my patients do lose weight on this diet, and then find it easier to do the walking exercises I recommended earlier—as well as feel better about themselves. So please try this diet for three weeks."

"This process cuts oxygen intake and complicates sleep conditions relating to sleep apnea. Alcohol is also high in sugar, which, as you know, is detrimental to those who are Spent. If the notion of starting your day without coffee or ending it without a glass of wine seems unthinkable, I have a plan that should help even the most addicted caffeine addicts slowly taper their intake and those who like to drink ease off alcohol. Here's how it goes: Caffeine: Day one: Today, have your normal amount of coffee. We have already axed soda from your diet because of its sugar."

"If these symptoms occur, contact your doctor immediately, and be especially proactive about helping your child overcome the symptoms, with rest, extra fluids, a healthy diet, and moderate intake of appropriate supplements. The symptoms could be an indication that your child is responding unfavorably to the vaccination. 6. If your child appears to have an adverse reaction to a vaccination, be very cautious about administering further vaccinations. It may be wise to postpone the vaccinations until your child is older, and has a more fully developed immune system. 7."

"At the first sign of an illness, he would increase his intake of transfer factor, and would take homeopathics, such as Thymactive and Drosera homaccord. Simultaneously, he would increase his vitamin C, for about a week. This eliminated the need for any asthma medications or antibiotics, except during one short illness. His parents are thrilled with his progress. Patient #6 This case is a revealing example of the significant improvement that can occur in a short time period. This four-year-old boy was seen nine months ago at age three years, three months."

"It can be prudent, though, to increase the intake of your child's minerals, even if no deficiencies appear to exist. A mineral that definitely should be supplemented is zinc, which is typically low among autistic kids. It can also help to give kids extra calcium, magnesium, and selenium, even though chelation does not significantly lower these minerals. Copper should generally be avoided, unless it has been demonstrated to be low, because it usually tends to already be too high in autistic kids. Therefore, giving a multimineral supplement that contains copper is generally not a good idea."

"Test varying amounts, to determine the optimal intake. The primary adverse reaction to oral magnesium is diarrhea. If this occurs, try a magnesium sulfate cream, or try baths with Epsom salt (unless eczema or dry skin is a problem). My general recommendation: 100 to 500 mg. per day, depending upon age, size, and other treatments and indications. Cod Liver Oil. This oil is rich in vitamin D, vitamin A, and essential fatty acids (especially DHA). All of these nutrients are often low in autistic kids, and also in many children with ADHD and asthma."

"Regular probiotic intake is important, as probiotics may stay in your intestinal tract; for as little as one week. vironment. We each might respond differently to different formulations. If you J Probiotic Origins find one that works for you, stick with it. If one does not work for you, try another.

"If this suits you, there are tracking methods and software programs that you can use to help you in logging your intake high-tech style. If you're at the computer frequently you might find that it works for you to keep your records there. The potential challenge with this method, however, is that you have to feel 100 percent confident that you'll be able to record every day. Some clients have told me that they began their food diary on their computer but then went on vacation or simply didn't have access to their computer for a day or two and this stopped them in their tracks."

"A significant inverse relationship was reported between magnesium intake and risk for type 2 diabetes. In other words, as magnesium levels went down, the incidence of diabetes went up. And there was a direct correlation between the level of magnesium and the amount of protection given to those who were above the deficiency level: the higher the level of magnesium, the lower the risk."

"In fact, other multi-country studies that have considered the implications of multiple human diets have confirmed that intake of fat in red meats was the strongest dietary risk factor for Alzheimer's, while consumption of fish such as salmon, tuna, herring, and sardines seemed to reduce the risk."

"Reducing alcohol intake could save thousands of lives. Current data suggests that nearly 50% of cancers of the mouth, pharynx and larynx are associated with heavy drinking. Although there is no evidence that alcohol itself is a carcinogen, alcohol may act as a co-carcinogen by enhancing the carcinogenic effects of other chemicals. For example, studies indicate that alcohol enhances tobacco's ability to stimulate tumor formation in rats. Heavy consumption of alcohol may increase the risk of cancer and is best avoided, as it has' many negative effects on health."

"As well, when a child is weaned from breast milk, his or her intake of probiotics drops. These two circumstances result in a decrease in intestinal probiotics and can allow bad microbes to enter the intestinal tract, colonize, cause inflammation and thus increase the potential for allergy development. Probiotics Help Fight Atopic Disease Studies support the use of probiotics in infants with atopic dermatitis as a means to reduce the symptoms of this painful condition. According to research from the University of Western Australia, probiotic supplementation with L."

"There are no official guidelines covering intake for unhealthy individuals. Fish Oil Like any machine, your heart needs oil to run smoothly. Not just any oil. Scientific research has identified the right oil as omega-3 fatty acids, oily substances present in plants and fish. We all have a particularly big need for these substances because of unhealthy dietary trends over the years. One way to get them into your body is to eat a lot of fish. Another way is to take omega-3 fatty acid supplements derived from fish oil."

"But you may have five mutations in your liver that mean you better cut down on well-done cheeseburgers, increase your intake of cruciferous vegetables, avoid exposure to polyaro-matic hydrocarbons present in gasoline fumes, and get out of the business you are in because exposure to certain chemicals could increase the risk of certain cancers or accelerated aging. "People always tend to listen to us more after their heart attacks."

"A 2002 report from a National Academy of Sciences panel concluded that "the only safe intake of trans-fat is zero." We applaud the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for making manufacturers disclose trans fat content on the labels of food products starting in 2006. We also applaud those fast-food restaurant chains that have eliminated trans fats. We hope that trans fats might someday be banned altogether. For more information on trans fats, see the special report on the Web site of the Center for Science in the Public Interest (www.cspinet.org). 10."

"You also need to limit your alcohol and caffeine intake. For a healthy bowel, avoid overusing antibiotics, and if you do use them, replace friendly bacteria with probiotics. Consider bowel cleansing with herbs and/or testing for overgrowth of bacteria and yeast if your bowels are not moving regularly. Follow a diet high in antioxidants so that quinones won't form from 4-OH estrone. Consider rotating antioxidants throughout the year (discussed in chapter 4). Monitor hormone metabolites with a twenty-four-hour urine test each year."

"Reducing the intake of proteins and processed foods, particularly those containing sulfates, can help reduce fermentation that results in the creation of some toxic compounds (ammonia, endotoxins) in the gastrointestinal tract. Another way to reduce the production of toxic compounds in the gastrointestinal tract is to ensure probiotics are present. Probiotics have positive effects that increase the ability of the intestinal mucosas to filter out toxins, preventing them from getting into your blood."

"The complete lack of overlap of serum antibodies of these two populations lead to some very productive studies in understanding the relationship of cow's milk intake and incidence of juvenile diabetes. One study in Chile25 found that genetically susceptible children who were weaned too early onto cow's milk?before three months of age—had a risk factor for juvenile diabetes of 13.1 times greater than children who did not have a genetic proclivity, or who were breastfed for at least three months. Another significant study in the U.S."

"Multiple studies have also associated magnesium intake with diabetes risk. Despite the fact that a couple of studies provided evidence to the contrary, it's considered an established fact that low serum levels of magnesium are associated with a risk for developing diabetes. For example, consider the well-known Women's Health Study (WHS). The WHS research involved a population of 39,345 women in the United States age forty-five or older, with no previous history of cardiovascular disease, cancer, or type 2 diabetes. Over the six years of follow-up, nearly 920 women (2."

"To reduce your level by 35 (95-35 = 60), simply decrease your intake by 26 IU per pound and measure your level again in three months. If this method overcorrects your vitamin D level, then the elevated level may have been related to recent sun exposure, or your initial calculation overestimated your needs. Let's say the 95 was your measurement after you'd been taking 25 IU per pound for three months without previously measuring your blood level. This means you probably had a normal vitamin D level to begin with, so maybe you don't need supplementation."
- James Dowd and Diane Stafford, The Vitamin D Cure (Get the book.)

"Toxicity is highly unlikely at a vitamin D level of less than 100 and at a vitamin D intake of less than 60 IU per pound, or roughly 10,000 IU a day. You can spot toxic vitamin D levels by the following symptoms: ?Frequent urination ?Constipation ?Nausea ?Weakness ?Vomiting ?Weight loss ?Poor appetite You may also have increased blood levels of calcium, which results in increased urination, dehydration, lethargy, and confusion. Chronic elevations of blood calcium can cause deposits of calcium and phosphate in your skin, muscles, and internal organs, such as the kidneys."

"The equation looks like this: 18 - 6 = Acid Excess of 12 You can easily balance your body chemistry by increasing your produce intake by four more servings. This will give you a total of six servings, and your acid excess drops to 0. So you say, "Hey, you just removed half of my food, so now I'm starving." That may be your knee-jerk reaction, but the fact is, you now have room to eat another healthy meal. Eat the Right Stuff "What can I eat?" That will probably be your first question after you finish taking your food inventory."

- James Dowd and Diane Stafford, The Vitamin D Cure (Get the book.)

"Right in line with these animal studies are results of the Third National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey and the Women's Health Study Data, which showed that low vitamin D and calcium intake led to metabolic syndrome. In the Women's Health Study, the relationship was stronger with calcium than vitamin D; in the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey III, both low vitamin D and calcium were independently associated with higher risk for developing metabolic syndrome.

"Figure 16 shows that with exercise, insulin sensitivity did go up, but in all groups, whether lean, obese, or Type-2 diabetic, caffeine intake significantly reduced insulin sensitivity. The researchers concluded that caffeine consumption is associated with a substantial reduction in insulin-mediated glucose uptake independent of obesity, Type-2 diabetes, and chronic exercise.72 40 r Pre Post Pre Post Pre Post Lean Obese T2D Insulin sensitivity in the lean, obese, and type 2 diabetic (T2D) groups before and after 3 months of exercise."

"Get most of your starch intake from carrots, peas, sweet potato, squash and beans, not from flour products and white potato. Do not eat white flour products. If you're using bread and pasta, use limited amounts, not more than one serving per day and, of course, make sure it is 100 percent whole grain. 11. Limit your consumption of oil to one tablespoon daily. Oil is a fattening, low-nutrient food. If you eat something cooked with oil, make sure you do not use oil on your salad that day. 12."
