"There may be a very small increase in the likelihood of intestinal bleeding, but that hazard is overwhelmed by the 2.5 percent reduction in the absolute risk of death before my time once I've suffered my first heart attack. If you have a heart attack, it makes sense to take a baby aspirin daily for the rest of your life. But should you, as a well person who has never had a heart attack or a gastrointestinal bleeding episode, decide to take a baby aspirin every day as a precaution against having your first attack?"

"All these foods are common allergens, except for the yeast-proliferating foods-such as sugar, vinegar, and yeast-which do their damage not through allergy, but by exacerbating intestinal candidiasis."

"Fife points out that another great thing about lauric acid is that it kills the "bad" bacteria but doesn't harm the friendly intestinal bacteria that we need for healthy digestion. Medium-chain triglycerides also kill Candida and other fungi in the intestinal tract, further supporting healthy gut ecology. Coconut Oil Is a Natural Remedy with Antioxidant Powers In his seminal book Medicinal Plants of the World, the dean of American herbalists, James Duke, wrote that coconut and coconut oil are used as folk remedies to treat more than thirty-five ailments, from abscesses to wounds."

"The body can only function smoothly and efficiently if the bowel removes the daily accumulated waste every day. intestinal congestion arises when foods are inadequately digested. The natural consequence is the back-flushing of waste into the lymph, blood, and upper parts of the body, including the stomach, chest, throat, neck, sensory organs, and brain. Health is the natural result of a balanced functioning of each of these major activities in the digestive system. On the other hand, cancer and many similar survival attempts arise whenever one or more of these functions is impaired."

"By permanently damaging the body's immune system and other important parts, chemotherapy has become a leading cause of treatment-caused diseases such as heart disease, liver disease, intestinal diseases, diseases of the immune system, infections, brain diseases, pain disorders, and rapid aging. Before committing themselves to being poisoned, cancer patients need to question their doctors and ask them to produce the research or evidence that shrinking a tumor actually translates to any increase in survival."

"This permits substantial amounts of waste matter and poisonous substances such as the highly carcinogenic (cancer-causing) amines, cadaverines, putrescines and other breakdown products of fermented and putrefied food to seep into the intestinal lymph ducts. Along with undigested fats See the author's book The Amazing Liver and Gallbladder Flush for details on stones in the liver and gallbladder and how to remove them safely and painlessly through liver flushing. and proteins these poisons enter the body's largest lymphatic structure, the thoracic duct with its base, the cysterna chyli."

"In addition to the above rinsing procedures, it is also important to address the underlying causes, that is, poor diet, dehydration, irregular lifestyle, congested liver and intestinal tract, and emotional stress. Soladey's Dental Solution I personally use a Soladey toothbrush to clean my teeth. Soladey has a patented design that is scientifically and clinically proven to significantly eliminate plaque more effectively than your regular toothbrush, without the use of toothpaste or dental floss. Soladey features a Titanium Oxide (TI02) metal rod, which is sensitive to light."

"Calcium may help prevent intestinal cancer. Deficiency of Calcium Calcium is not normally low in the bloodstream because there is a large reservoir of calcium in the bones. As long as the parathyroid glands are working normally, calcium levels are maintained in the blood. There are a few causes of low blood calcium that are not related to parathyroid hormone. The kidneys play a large role in blood calcium regulation, so kidney failure can cause calcium deficiency in the blood. You may recall that vitamin D is needed for calcium absorption."
- Dr. Steve Blake, Vitamins and Minerals Demystified (Get the book.)

"Sodium is absorbed directly from the intestinal tract. Sodium travels freely in blood and interstitial fluid. Excess sodium causes thirst, which triggers extra water intake. This extra water flushes the extra sodium out through the kidneys. Sodium gained during food processing (mg of sodium in 100 g of each food) 592 Whole White Wheat Bread Flour 1 266 Apple Apple Pie 524 Tomato Tomato Sauce 2310 58 Pork Roast Bacon Figure 8-3 Sodium is increased in food processing."

"However, they may vary in absorption and tissue distribution. intestinal absorption is influenced by the food source of the vitamin. The varying side chains on vitamin K affect the fat solubility, and this affects tissue distribution. Certain proteins are able to bind calcium with the assistance of vitamin K. Glutamic acid is one of the amino acids used to make certain proteins. Vitamin K converts the glutamic acid residues in certain proteins to a form of glutamic acid that can bind calcium."

"Iron deficiency has been found to increase the intestinal absorption of lead, which contributes to learning and memory problems. High-Risk Individuals for Iron Deficiency Rapid growth rates coupled with limited intakes of iron can cause deficiency in children between the ages of six months and four years. Infants are normally born with enough iron stores to last the first six months. The period of rapid growth in early adolescence is also a time of risk for iron deficiency. Adolescent girls who are growing rapidly and also menstruating are at a high risk of iron deficiency."

"CoQIO Blood-Level Research After you swallow a pill, CoQIO travels the same pathway of intestinal absorption as other fats we consume. Among the factors affecting this process are particle size, degree of solubility (that is, dissolvability), and the type of food eaten with the supplement. Absorption is helped, for instance, by taking the supplement with a meal containing some fat, which provides a medium for the CoQIO to mix with."

"My husband had developed a life-threatening intestinal blockage. He needed emergency surgery that evening. Once the news sunk in, I made one quick phone call to alert Julie, my friend and neighbor. When I called her back scarcely an hour later, she'd arranged what seemed to me a miracle. My boys would have dinner with her and her family. (She too has two young boys, so my boys thought it was a great playdate.) Our mutual neighbor, a high school student (who'd frequently babysat both for Julie's boys and my own), would put my kids to bed that night."

"The absolute risk of intestinal bleeding from taking a baby aspirin every day is also miniscule. It's your call. What about statins? How do you come to a similar personal benefit/risk assessment for a statin? Does the 1.9 percent reduction in risk of nonfatal heart attack advantage a well person with high blood cholesterol enough to justify taking Pravachol forever? Many elements enter into such a personal benefit/risk assessment. Cost may be an issue for you. It certainly is for the "health-care de- livery system."
- Nortin M. Hadler MD, Worried Sick: A Prescription for Health in an Overtreated America (Get the book.)

"Probiotic bacteria favorably alter the intestinal microflora balance, inhibit the growth of harmful bacteria (like Candida albicans, or "yeast"), promote good digestion, boost immune function, and increase resistance to infection. Probiotics also contain enzymes to help break down and digest dairy products like lactose in milk. The best place to find probiotics is in yogurts that contain "active cultures." But you can also increase the content by purchasing a high-quality probiotic formula. (I have several excellent ones listed on my website,"

"To prevent the possibility of the antibiotics causing yeast overgrowth, or intestinal candidiasis, I gave Kevin the antifungal drug nystatin. Kevin also went on a low carbohydrate diet, and took a form of B-12 called methylcobalamin, or methyl-B-12, which revives the miraculous process of methylation. The last time I saw Kevin, he gave me a dazzling grin, sat down, and said, "Hi, Dr. Bock." I had a nice conversation with him, as one might with any well-behaved child. He was delightful to be around."

"Yeast overgrowth then adds to the immune load, and also contributes to intestinal hyperpermeability. The damage to the intestines that's done by yeast overgrowth can then extend beyond the gut, and become a factor in inhalant allergies. Many inhalant allergies, in fact, are more rooted in gut problems than in airway problems. This phenomenon was recently proven in an animal experiment, in which mice that had been given antibiotics became substantially more allergic to inhaled mold. The hygiene hypothesis accounts for another probable cause of allergy."

"Bowel dysbiosis: The existence of abnormal intestinal flora that have harmful effects, due to putrefaction, fermentation, deficiency, or sensitization. It can cause widespread effects, including neurological problems. Bronchioles: The small air passages that branch off from the bronchi. Bronchitis: Inflammation of the mucus membranes of the lungs. Bronchoconstriction: Airflow limitation due to contraction of airway smooth muscle. Bronchodilator: A substance used to open up the air passages in order to prevent and treat asthma symptoms."

"They may work through reducing stomach spasms, intestinal spasms. Chamomile's a great example. There was actually a study where they compared giving chamomile tea to babies, versus a placebo. And the babies who got the chamomile tea did much better." Dr. Rosen also recommends infant massage, which he says is "terrific for reducing stress in babies, and in parents. It's a great way for parents to interact with the babies who may be excessively fussy." (For resources on infant massage, refer to the recommended reading section on page 253.) Time and again, Dr."

"The stomach is a courageous organ, both for what it does (breaks down nutrients in preparation for processing by the rest of the intestinal tract and then the liver) and for what it puts up with in the process (fast food, the stress of modern work culture, and gas, gas, gas!). As such, the modern gut is the martyr of the contemporary corpus, Saint Gastronomica with arrows. It is hardly surprising, then, that this same organ suffers from increasing use of pharmaceuticals. One of the great innovations of the new pharma era was gastrointestinal medication, H2 blockers and proton pump inhibitors."

"Being bloated can also be a sign of a variety of intestinal problems, including constipation, bowel obstruction, irritable bowel syndrome, and cancers of the digestive system, such as colon and stomach cancer. It can also signal thyroid disease, cirrhosis of the liver, and chronic kidney disease. Bloating can also be an early—and sometimes the only—warning sign of ovarian cancer, the deadliest and one of the most underdiagnosed cancers in women. The prognosis is good if diagnosed early. Unfortunately, most cases—80%—aren't caught early enough to save a woman's life."

"A smooth red tongue, however, can be a red flag for pernicious anemia, a fairly common and easily treatable vitamin B12 deficiency, or malabsorption syndrome, an intestinal disorder in which the body cannot adequately absorb nutrients. If only a patch of your tongue is red or white and smooth, it may be a sign of median rhomboid glossitis (MRG). This bare spot looks much like a diamond or rhomboid, hence its name. It can be flat or raised and is devoid of both tongue hairs and taste buds."

"The eggs help regulate the body's immune system as well as reduce the intestinal inflammation in people with IBD. In the past, when most people harbored these and other parasites, the incidence of IBD was much lower. Beets, tomato juice, red gelatin, and red fruit punches and ice pops are all common culprits. On the other hand, if you see bright red streaks or spots on your stool— medically known as hematochezia—or on your toilet paper or in the toilet bowl, it can be a tip-off that you have bleeding hemorrhoids or anal fissures (tears) or other rectal or anal injuries."

"If untreated, neurological and intestinal problems can develop within weeks. So if you love to eat egg whites, be sure to thoroughly heat them first. You'll be killing two birds with one stone: reducing your risk of egg-white injury syndrome and of salmonella food poisoning. Nutritional deficiencies aren't the only culprits. Hair loss can also be your body's way of telling you that you've had too much of a good thing. Indeed, an excess of certain medicines or even essential vitamins and minerals (especially vitamin A and selenium) can cause your hair to fall out."

"The consumption of these bacteria is beneficial for boosting the immune system, enhancing intestinal tract health, lessening the symptoms of lactose intolerance, and reducing the risk of certain cancers. Home Remedies Eating yogurt that contains live cultures of Lactobacillus acidophilus on a daily basis will introduce good bacteria and help treat a yeast infection. Throw Me a Lifesaver! ARTHRITIS: A rat study found that arthritic rats fed yogurt containing Lactobacillus GG bacteria had only mild inflammation."

"There's no significant advantage in taking more than 2 grams at any one time because saturation of intestinal mucosa occurs at this dosage level. The two most common preparations you'll find in a health food store are the fumarates and the tartrates. We prefer L-carnitine fumarate over L-carnitine tartrate because we have found it to be more efficient, especially for patients with oxygen-starved hearts. SigmaTau U.S."

"This directly damages the intestinal wall. To understand how this happens, consider the carefully interconnected parts of the intestine. The human bowel is lined with millions of projections called villi that facilitate the efficient absorption of nutrients. These villi are covered in cells that are constantly being shed and renewed—around a thousand billion cells are shed from them every day. Our intestines also have tiny gaps in the lining."
- Donna Jackson Nakazawa, The Autoimmune Epidemic (Get the book.)

"Then came the drugs, which destroyed the lining of the entire intestinal tract, from mouth to anus, making both swallowing and eliminating unbearably painful. Women who underwent high-dose chemo suffered waves of nausea and vomiting alternating with racking bouts of diarrhea. Some women became disoriented, others agitated and angry, pacing their isolation rooms as they waited for their bone marrow to regrow. For many women, the loneliness was crushing. Others succumbed to infection before their bone marrow could reconstitute itself."
- Shannon Brownlee, Overtreated: Why Too Much Medicine Is Making Us Sicker and Poorer (Get the book.)

"Other conditions that can mimic the pain of appendicitis include an intestinal blockage, constipation, menstrual cramps, and even a bad case of gas. In women of reproductive age, one in four appendectomies is negative or unnecessary. In people older than eighty, the negative appendectomy rate is a whopping 3 5 percent. (Surgeons generally remove the appendix once they're inside the belly.) You would think that the advent of CT scanning would have significantly reduced the chances that emergency room doctors will misdiagnose appendicitis."

"Leaky gut syndrome occurs when the intestinal lining becomes overly permeable, usually as a result of irritation and inflammation. This condition of heightened permeability allows undigested food particles, as well as bacteria, fungi, viruses, and yeast, to move into the bloodstream, causing havoc. It also allows pathogens outside the gut to enter it, causing gastrointestinal disturbances and disorders such as irritable bowel syndrome."
