"Each patient then received the other treatment for an additional 4 weeks. Compared with the placebo, CoQio reduced the frequency of anginal episodes by 53%. Although this improvement was not statistically significant, CoQio therapy did significantly increase exercise tolerance on a treadmill (as determined by the time before onset of chest pain).8 Vitamin E For nearly 50 years, the relationship between vitamin E and heart disease has been debated repeatedly. Early claims by Dr. Wilfrid Shute that vitamin E relieves angina were not confirmed by controlled studies."

"For example, a distrustful patient dreamt of giving a chromium soap dish to someone building a home. Unknown to this patient, Ullman had recently been looking at a chromium soap dish he had mistakenly received when building his house and had held onto "in a spirit of belligerent dishonesty inspired by rising costs on the house . . ."' The patient seemingly homed in on this small incident via dream telepathy as a poignant symbolic expression for his distrust of therapists."

"To get off of their drugs and to delete the fraudulent, stigmatizing labels, they will have to seek out physicians and mental health professionals who will outline with them a plan for weaning them from their poisons and substituting, in their place humane, human understanding, guidance and talk therapy, that credits the patient with a brain and an ability to learn, adapt and prevail. Big pharma and psychiatry have no such plan."

"Whether or not a patient complains of symptoms, whether or not the cause is known, real diseases all have this is common—an objective abnormality is demonstrable; the abnormality is the disease. Thus, no matter how lengthy various medical dictionary definitions may be or how much fudging gets done by those who would invent "diseases" for profit, when you get down to it, disease = abnormality. No disease = disease-free = no abnormality = normal."

"One patient had to stop treatment because of stomach pains, but no other side effects were seen." The beneficial effect of riboflavin was subsequently confirmed in a double-blind study.12 It is not known how riboflavin prevents migraines. One theory is that migraine sufferers have a biochemical defect in energy production that might be corrected by taking riboflavin. While riboflavin is generally considered nontoxic, there are no long-tetm studies demonstrating the safety of doses as large as 400 mg per day (an amount more than 200 times the Recommended Dietary Allowance)."

"Each patient then received the alternate treatment for an additional 4 months. The number of migraine attacks was significantly reduced by 24% during the feverfew period, compared with the placebo period.14 Other Factors Other factors that may trigger or aggravate migraines include cigarette smoking, use of oral contraceptives, emotional stress, and spinal misalignments. In addition, excessive use of ergot-amine (a drug used to treat acute migraines) may actually increase the recurrence rate of migraines."

"The conventional approach to severe toxemia is to hospitalize the patient and treat her with intravenous infusions of large doses of magnesium. While that treatment is helpful, it is not without risk. DR. WRIGHT'S CASE STUDY Alice Higgenbotham arrived with her granddaughter. "I know it's short notice and you haven't seen Cindy before, but your nurse said it was OK. It's really urgent. She's lxh months pregnant, and they want to give her diuretics because her blood pressure's starting to go up, and her ankles are swelling."

"Deaths may occur, but such facts rarely get into the drug "insert" that is supposed to be all the patient and family need to know to give informed consent to treat. Rather it is the horror stories that slowly emerge in the press from the "post-marketing" prescription experience that are the facts which should constitute "disclosure" for purposes of informed consent, but never do. Rezulin, a diabetes drug, caused 61 deaths before it was taken off of the market. It took an FDA physician going direct to Congress to get the FDA to act."

"Failure to do so, a violation of every patient's right to informed consent, is grounds for malpractice. DEPUTY DIAGNOSTICIANS: YOU'VE GOT "ANTS IN THE PANTS" In the vast majority of cases it is schools, with the process usually kicked off by a classroom teacher, who initiate the ADHD labeling and drugging process, not parents or physicians. Despite having no qualifications for making diagnoses or recommending drugs, they are brazen about it."

"The patient himself must be the one to ask for nonpalliative treatment. The patient will ask for "unconventional" methods, as such methods are considered today, and they will substitute for or, at least, add to the present conventional "treatments." I hope I've satisfied your curiosity. My advice is always the same: Practice, practice, practice! An Interview with David De Angelis What prompted you to write this book?

"But an observer who remains silent about public overreliance on the markets and overconfidence in future returns because he or she could be wrong about the outlook is no better than a doctor who, having diagnosed high blood pressure in a patient, says nothing because he thinks the patient might be lucky and show no ill effects."

"As I went into my office to take the call, I racked my brains for a patient or a parent I might have been treating at the time named Melissa, and I was drawing a blank. As it turned out, this was because Melissa wasn't a patient, although she had plenty of emotional issues she needed help with, and she was bright enough to recognize this herself. A visit from the whole family was scheduled to take place later that week, and Melissa had snuck into her room with the phone to secretly call my office beforehand."

"While doctors can't explain precisely why some patients cure themselves through their beliefs, the effect has been documented so many times that at the very least we must accept that there is a correlation between the body's repairing itself and the patient's belief that the healing has taken place.

"In a four-year study conducted at Duke University, which evaluated more than nine hundred patients with type 2 diabetes and/or depression, researchers found that a combination of diabetes, depression, and heart disease can increase a patient's risk of death by 20 to 30 percent. The results of this 2007 study suggest that diabetes and depression exacerbate each other, but we need more research to identify exactly the reason(s) for this association. Another problem that affects diabetics who are depressed is that they often fail to take proper care of themselves because of their low mood."

"So there's just as much responsibility on the patient as the physician in these cases. And I don't mean to only point the finger at doctors and say, "It's their fault that patients aren't following nutritional advice." It's also the responsibility of patients to adopt that advice and make it part of their lifestyle rather than simply ignoring it."

"Diagnosis may be more difficult if a patient is not seen by a dermatologist until weeks after allergic dermatitis's onset. By this time, the dermatitis may have spread well beyond the originally exposed area, and the patient may be hazy about their past product use. In these circumstances, diagnosis generally requires a diagnostic test known as the patch test. In a patch test, a drop of liquid containing a mix of commonly known allergens is applied to the skin. The skin is then covered by an occlusive tape, and after two days the tape is removed and the skin inspected."

"Neither the patient nor the researcher conducting the study know which treatment is being given to which patient until after the results have been tabulated. biological changes pose unknown and untested potential dangers to human health. In addition, the overwhelming majority of cosmeceuticals draw no distinction between the supposedly active ingredients in their products and other ingredients, further confusing consumers interested in the identity of ingredients in the products they purchase. Why are manufacturers so reluctant to conduct adequate safety testing on their products? As Dr."

"In addition, fibrinogen levels were reduced in all but one patient and electrocardiogram results normalized in fifteen of the patients. Angina patients are usually prescribed powerful medication for this condition, and they should continue taking that medication. Although the evidence available today supports the likelihood that green tea polyphenols can help prevent or modulate the severity of developing angina, extracts of green tea polyphenols are not a substitute for medication when angina has developed."

"The patient seemingly homed in on this small incident via dream telepathy as a poignant symbolic expression for his distrust of therapists. On other occasions, the patients seemed to pick up on larger issues that dovetailed with events or concerns in Ullman's life. Ullman found this repeated dream telepathy so fascinating that in the 1960s, he and psychologist Stanley Krippner, Ph.D., began formal dream-laboratory studies at the Maimonides Medical Center in Brooklyn, New York, to investigate dream telepathy scientifically."

"In an article written in 1864, he left little doubt as to why he suspected that the real power of healing was less about the procedures and more about the way doctors helped their patients feel about themselves: "My first impressions [about medicine] are that there is much humbug therein, and that, with the exception of surgery, in which something positive is sometimes accomplished, a doctor does more by the moral effect of his presence on the patient and family, than by anything else."

"Williams says, "this is a red light which tells us that there is some serious disease hiding somewhere in the body, of which both the patient and the doctor were unaware." Of the patients he tested, Dr. Williams reports that their CRP levels ranged from 0.9 to 4.8 milligrams per liter, with the average being 2.2 milligrams per liter. Commenting on these remarkable findings, Dr. Williams says, "I am really impressed with the results. All of the patients' CRP levels are in the low normal range, a strong indication that they are in overall good health."

"Chief among them is that patient groups are a great way to help shape public opinion about the conditions your products are designed to treat. With high cholesterol, there are clearly differing views within the wider health community about how to define the condition, and for whom drugs might be appropriate. Sponsoring advocacy groups that tend to keep messages simple, and keep the focus on the fear of high cholesterol, will inevitably help to maximize the sales of cholesterol-lowering drugs.40 Up at White River Junction, set amongst the green mountains of Vermont in the north east of the U.S."

"The doctors, the drug reps, the medical education, the ads, the patient groups, the guidelines, the celebrities, the conferences, the public awareness campaigns, the thought-leaders, and even the regulator's advisers—at every level there is money from drug companies lubricating what many believe is an unhealthy flow of influence. Industry does not crudely buy influence with individuals and organizations—rather its largesse is handed out to those considered to be most commercially helpful. The industry's sponsorship is strategic, systematic, and systemic."

"Scientists at Cornell University examined the ways physicians make medical diagnoses by having them think aloud while they solved the case of a patient with liver disease.14 Astonishingly, this research team found that when they gave physicians a small gift—simply a bag of candy—those physicians were better at integrating case information and less likely to become fixated on their initial ideas, coming to premature closure in their diagnosis. Whether you're the physician or the patient, I think you'd agree that better clinical reasoning is a good thing."

"In the frankest of terms the report describes the selling of sickness: the analyst outlines how companies are "expanding the patient pool" by using marketing campaigns to change public perceptions about what used to be considered normal life. "The medicalization of many natural processes," says the report, "is creating markets for lifestyle drugs for those who want to 'optimize quality of life.'"7 . .. pharmaceutical companies are searching for new disorders, based on extensive analysis of unexploited market opportunities (whether recognized today or promoted as such tomorrow)."

"This condition refers to a blood glucose level below 70 milligrams per deciliter for the typical patient, although the number doctors consider "low" varies depending upon the characteristics of the patient. Some experts suggest that it is not a low blood sugar count per se that causes the symptoms of hypoglycemia, but rather the rapid fall of blood sugar levels. There are two categories of hypoglycemia: drug-related and nondrug-related. Drug-related hypoglycemia is the most common and occurs in people taking medication or insulin in the treatment of diabetes."

"Due to patient load, they can only spend 2-3 minutes in dialogue with each patient. In that time period, it's simply not possible to teach nutrition to a patient. Of course, if you go visit a naturopathic physician, you will get a lot more face time. You would typically be able to ask questions and you would get a lot more personal instruction on nutrition and lifestyle changes as a way to prevent chronic disease. But when it comes to old school doctors and traditionally trained physicians, you won't even get enough time to talk about nutrition."
