"In 1998 I attended a five-day natural hormone conference with Dr. Thierry Hertoghe, a leading anti-aging physician from Belgium. He plucked me from the audience as a prime example of forty-something aging. Dr. Hertoghe made sure everyone got a good look at my thinning outer eyebrows, the "gooseflesh" skin of my upper arms, my dry skin, and my slow ankle reflexes (low active thyroid). My sagging cheeks (deficient growth hormone) and reddened eyelids (lack of Cortisol) were duly noted, as were my fingernails, which were thin and dry with ridges. Dr."

"Used in small, physiologic doses, natural Cortisol will support and strengthen your adrenals. Cortisol dramatically improves fatigue, depression, body aches, and repeated infections. It is not for everyone, but if you have very low adrenal function and significant symptoms, it can turn your life around. I recommend it for people with severe fatigue or depression symptoms whose morning blood level of Cortisol is less than 10 ug/dl or whose twenty-four-hour urine Cortisol level is less than 50 ug in twenty-four hours. One of the best features of Cortisol is that its effects are immediate."

"So always balance estrogen with natural progesterone to protect yourself from clotting. It is also important to always use estrogen transdermally, never orally. Estrogen taken orally alters clotting proteins to promote further clotting. Our ovaries normally secrete hormones directly into our bloodstream, so the liver doesn't receive a high level of sex hormones. But hormones taken orally are absorbed through our gut and reach the liver immediately in high levels, which causes a rise in clotting proteins and predisposes to blood clots."

"A careful process of sifting through the benefits of alternative and conventional medicine and the weaknesses or downside of any natural or conventional therapy is especially warranted when it comes to osteoporosis. Another way to take bio-identical progesterone is as oral micronized progesterone (OMP). It is also often used in menopause management, although it has not received the attention and commercial interests for general consumer use because it is available only by prescription."

"At least two studies, though, have shown that transdermal natural progesterone of 30 mg per day134 and 40 mg per day135 did modestly elevate levels of progesterone in the blood after 15 days and 42 days respectively. A transdermal cream of 20 mg daily in a randomized clinical trial resulted in statistically significant improvement in vasomotor symptoms, but no improvement in mood or bone mineral content.136 Transdermal progesterone cream for vasomotor symptoms does have efficacy, which is discussed in the chapter on menopause (Chapter 12)."

"Schulick and company co-CEO Tom Newmark say that the key to the success of Zyflamend is total respect for natural wisdom. New Chapter, located in Brattleboro, Vermont, manufactures the formula, now being tested at the M.D. Anderson Cancer Center at the University of Texas. Herbal chemoprevention, the use of select herbs and nutrients to prevent the growth of cancer, is also being studied by Dr. Robert A. Newman, Ph.D. Dr."

"In the process, the strengths of more or less unadulterated natural compounds from herbs or foods are often revealed. When those strengths are substantial and worth further investigation, the medical mainstream and the media tend to stand up and take note. This is what has been happening with the specific combination of herbs in Zyflamend. RESEARCH Combined in Zyflamend, these herbs have been found to regulate cancer cell proliferation, reduce cancer spread, and promote apoptosis. Test-tube studies performed at the M.D."

"One-third of the people I treat with natural medicine [like diet and supplements] will get 100 percent better—effectively cured," he told me. "One-third will improve considerably—they may be able to go off meds, or reduce meds substantially, or their symptoms will lessen, or they'll have measurably less pain and suffering. And one-third, unfortunately, won't be helped very much at all." I agree with this, but I'd go one step further."

"Some of the "natural prescriptions" in this book don't even use supplements (let alone drugs). The Relaxation Response for stress, for example. Or reflexology for PMS. Or the phenomenally effective EMDR (eye movement desensitization and reprocessing) technique for post-traumatic stress disorder. And some cures (like the Health Recovery Center program for alcoholism) combine an array of supplements with spiritual and psychological techniques."

"Infertility treatments can actually accelerate hormonal decline, as many protocols attempt to suppress a woman's natural hormonal cycle. This doesn't mean you shouldn't undergo fertility treatments—just be aware that your periods might wane or you might experience hot flashes afterward. Infertility is hard enough. Coupled with menopause, it can feel unbearable. Bette Davis sure got it right when she said "Getting old ain't for sissies."

"Saint John's wort is the most thoroughly researched natural antidepressant. The majority of these studies have not been conducted on menopausal women, but in 37 of 39 clinical trials, Saint John's wort was shown to be superior to the placebo or equal to the conventional prescription antidepressant medications. In general, studies have shown improvement in individuals with mild to moderate depression.128 In a recent review of studies, a total of 37 trials, including 26 comparisons with placebo and 14 comparisons with synthetic standard antidepressants, were evaluated."

"A simplification that I use when discussing conventional versus complementary medicine is that conventional medicine tends to work against the body's natural, often beneficial functioning. For example, if you have a fever and take an aspirin, the fever goes away, even though that fever may shorten the duration of an infection. If you have a stuffy nose and take a decongestant, the stuffy nose goes away, even though that stuffiness comes from blood vessels dilated to deliver more white blood cells to an infected area."

"Our modern lifestyle hinders natural stimulation of the feet because we are always wearing shoes and walking on flat, even surfaces. So, even if you don't want to try reflexology, you can stimulate your feet in a very simple way. Just take off your shoes! Go barefoot in the park, walk over a variety of surfaces, wriggle your toes in the sand, or buy a pair of specially designed massage sandals. For a more general, overall reflexology stimulation even a soft drink bottle or tennis ball rolled backwards and forwards on the floor with the feet can be used."

"When natural laws of caring for the body are ignored, aging and deterioration take place in a manner that, sooner or later, results in serious loss of quality of life. As some older friends have said to me, "It's no fun growing old." And, with skyrocketing healthcare expenses plus reduced services, how cost-effective is the standard medical route? And how reliable is it? How long are the waiting lists for surgery, or even to get an appointment with a specialist? What are the costs for heart operations or cancer treatments? And, in the end, are they curative?"

"Pottenger, done many years ago, clearly illustrate that humans and animals thrive and live in health when they eat diets of natural, unprocessed foods. But, when they eat foods that have been processed, denatured, and preserved with additives, they develop degenerative diseases. IT TAKES LIFE TO GET LIFE Around the year 325 ad, the Roman Emperor Constantine and his Council of Nicea decided to simplify the collection of scriptures into what is now known as the King James Version of the Christian Bible."

"At that time, all medical schools in America taught the use of only natural remedies for healing. Students did not learn to use drugs for treatments and therefore doctors did not prescribe the pharmaceutical companies' products. This was not good business for the cartel. Its solution to this problem was to form the Council of Medical Education in 1910, through the American Medical Association. This became the body that accredited medical schools. Schools that were accredited received funds from the government, but were also required to comply with the Council's requirements."

"Also included are many natural remedies which will improve your body's response to outside factors and asthmatic triggers. We are not claiming that all the ideas in this section are of equal value to people with asthma. Some of the therapies may only result in greater relaxation—but being relaxed really does prevent asthma attacks from becoming severe. The therapeutic mind and body methods and lifestyle topics offer you various options for broadening your self-help scope, so that you can handle your condition and improve your overall health."
- Dr Ron Roberts, Asthma Controlled Naturally: Techniques That Work (Get the book.)

"The aim of alternative and natural therapies is to control and, if possible, prevent asthma. The chapters which follow, in Part Two of this book, offer an eclectic collection of alternative therapies to help asthmatics ease their distress. The most important of these, we believe, is Controlled Pattern Breathing, which is described in Chapter 6. Many other factors have a vital bearing on your asthmatic condition, however, and should not be neglected: regular exercise to ensure physical fitness, and a healthy diet to improve and protect your immune system, are extremely important."

"Juices Juices extracted from plants, fruits, vegetables or herbs are extremely rich in vitamins, natural sugars, minerals, enzymes and trace elements. Very few other foods are as good for us as the raw juices of fruits or vegetables. They are assimilated directly from the stomach into the bloodstream without undue strain on the digestive system. They aid the body in purifying the blood, help in neutralising waste products, assist in building new tissue and have a revitalising and rejuvenating effect on the body's organs and glands."

"Where to buy it: If you can't find it in your local supermarket, look for it at natural foods stores. Quinoa is sometimes found in bins or prepackaged in the dried bean section. How much to take: Eating one cup will help satisfy those carbohydrate cravings plus give you protein. This is a great source of protein among other nutrients, alternating with black beans, soy beans and other high protein non meat foods will give you the essential amino acids necessary to stabilize moods and stress levels. Quick Tip 1: Cook quinoa like rice: 1 cup quinoa to 2 cups water."

"After six weeks, a two-week break is recommended to see if natural sleep has improved. Nutrients for Moods and Stress Protein Consuming protein three times a day can help with depression or anxiety and ensure your blood sugar level is balanced. Protein contains the necessary amino acids to create serotonin and endorphins-ourmood regulating neurotransmitters. B Vitamin B vitamins are necessary for producing SAMe, a component of serotonin, melatonin and dopamine (mood stabilizing neurotransmitters in the brain) production."

"Laughter also triggers the release of endorphins, the body's natural painkillers producing a general sense of well-being. In March of 1995 Dr. Madan Kataria, a family physician from Mumbai, India, decided to write an article called "Laughter - the best medicine" for his monthly health magazine, My Family Doctor. He discovered scientific literature that described in great length the proven benefits of laughter on the human mind and body. He decided to test the impact of laughter on himself."

"As potent as natural essential oils are, their effect can be greatly enhanced by using them to lubricate the skin during a therapeutic massage. Researchers have determined that the scent of lavender increases alpha waves in the brain, which is the type of brain activity associated with relaxation, and jasmine increases stimulating beta waves. So if you want to calm down, expose yourself to lavender, and if you want to sharpen your ; mind and senses, opt for jasmine."

"Instead of interrupting or interjecting, wait for a natural pause and segue in the conversation. To be mindful when you're driving, focus on your car, traffic patterns, and road conditions. If you're using your cell phone or opening mail while driving, you are not being mindful—you are distracted, and that increases your risk of injuring yourself or other people in an accident. As another example, many men see sexual intercourse as the payoff for being romantic. This view focuses on one end result and prevents men from being in the moment."

"And there is much to be considered. The natural Origins of Pharmaceuticals Approximately 40 percent of all pharmaceutical drugs are derived from medicinal plants or herbs. In fact, the word "drug" is a derivative of the Dutch word drogge, which means 1o dry." Prior to modern drug preparation methods, both physicians and traditional native healers commonly dried plants before using them medicinally. Aspirin, one of the most common drugs, is derived from willow bark, an herb that is rich in salicin."

"They also act as natural filters, helping eliminate carbon monoxide and organic chemicals. If weather or unhealthy levels of air pollutants force you to keep windows closed, consider using a negative ion generator to further purify the air inside your home or workspace. Negative ions are air molecules containing an abundance of electrons. The benefit of using a negative ion generator is similar to that of breathing fresh ocean air, which also has a high concentration of negative ions. You will feel energized and more alive."

"Conducted by an expert team of scientific researchers affiliated with Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine, the extensive battery of clinical tests showed remarkable results in support of SierraSil as a breakthrough natural therapeutic supplement. Through the practical material we have carefully presented, you should also have a clear understanding of how and why arthritis pain and joint deterioration occurs, as well as how to protect your body from chronic inflammatory responses."

"Remember, swelling following sprains, strains or muscle tears is natural. Don't try to block it unless, of course, you're talking about swelling of the brain (which is a completely different medical emergency)."
