"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."

"It would be frivolous and unscientific to dismiss the collective empirical experience of more than 50 generations of patients and physicians as simply a "placebo effect" (Benedum, 1998). Making Medicines Safer by Isolating and Modifying Plant Constituents In his famous Account of the Foxglove [published in 1785, William Withering described how he was called to the home of an itinerant salesman in Yorkshire. "I found him vomiting incessantly, his vision was blurred, and his pulse rate was about 40 beats per minute."

"The Drug Commission of the Association of German physicians made the following statement in its recommendations on the treatment of dementia: "Of the anti-dementia drugs presented here, the acetylcholinesterase inhibitors should definitely be considered the agents of first choice for Alzheimer dementia from the standpoint of proven efficacy. There is very little evidence from clinical studies to support the alternative use of other groups of drugs. Official approval, individual response, and tolerance should be considered as additional criteria" (AkdA, 2001)."

"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. Perhaps alongside the list of physical complaints we bring to our doctor's office, we should also bring small gifts or kindnesses."

"Many integrative physicians, like Kenneth Bock, M.D., likewise recommend breastfeeding whenever possible. "But you have to recognize that breastfeeding is a double-edged sword," Dr. Bock said. "You've got the healthful aspects of breastfeeding, which I support, but you must recognize that even in breast milk, there will be toxins." He went on to discuss the psychological and emotional benefits of a mother breastfeeding her child. "Maybe I'm old-fashioned," he said, "but I still think that there's a value to that."

"According to Rudolph Ballentine, MD, mercury toxicity is being reported with increasing frequency by physicians as well as dentists. The two main contributing factors seem to be a diet high in fish and the common use of silver-mercury amalgams for dental work. Fish consumption alone may be enough to cause mercury toxicity. An article by the Canadian Medical Association in 1976 reported that Indians in Northern Canada, who ate more than a pound of fish per day, had symptoms of mercury poisoning."

"Kelp was first used medicinally to treat enlarged thyroid glands. physicians didn't know why kelp was effective, until it was discovered that it was exceptionally rich in iodine and that enlarged thyroids were caused by iodine deficiency. Because iodine stimulates the thyroid gland, which controls the metabolism, it was noted that those who took iodine lost weight more easily. From these observations, kelp was then used to assist in weight loss. It has been suggested that kelp's positive effects in assisting metabolism may help in lowering cholesterol."

"Professionals typically involved in such programs include dietitians, diabetes education nurses, exercise physiologists, and/or physicians. Most insurance plans cover the cost of these programs. The American Diabetes Association The American Diabetes Association (ADA) is a national nonprofit organization that provides a variety of support services. The main Web site (www.diabetes.org), for example, has links to help you find a chapter of the ADA in your area, at which you can participate in activities, volunteer for events, and meet other people who have diabetes."

"We also discuss other tests that are not commonly ordered by physicians and their value in screening and testing for diabetes, including one for men only. THE TESTS Many people believe that undergoing a fasting plasma glucose test is all they need to do for metabolic risk assessment. We believe, however, that although this test is important and useful, fasting insulin and lipid tests are necessary screening tools for detecting insulin resistance."

"A core understanding of this relationship is often lacking in people who have diabetes and it is often not explained by physicians to their patients. ?oxidative stress, which has a devastating impact on both metabolic and cardiovascular function in people who have prediabetes or diabetes. ?glycation, AGEs (advanced glycation end products), and ALEs (advanced lipoxidation end products), known collectively as glycotoxins, which can cause irreversible damage in people with diabetes. Glycation is a core factor in diabetic complications."

"But stay with me for a few minutes while I present some important revelations that have convinced thousands of skeptical researchers and physicians worldwide. Doing just a few lifestyle things differently can ward off dreaded diseases and have a dramatic effect on your health. All you have to do is give the Vitamin D Cure a chance, and the payoff will be yours?good health, a better future, and more quality time with your friends and family. An unbalanced diet, vitamin D deficiency, and the medical problems they cause affect more than two-thirds of the U.S."

"As the childhood health crisis worsens, more and more parents, and physicians, are starting to question the effect these vaccines might be having on our children's developing immune systems. People are starting to ask themselves, How many vaccines can one little baby handle? Are vaccine manufacturers and the regulatory agencies charged with vaccine safety doing their best to ensure the safety of these vaccines? Could all of these vaccines be too much of a good thing?"

"I understand that, in our age of data banks, many pharmacies keep track of what their clients are taking and their computers "red flag" possible adverse interactions. physicians will soon have access to that information to inform their patients about potentially dangerous drug/supplement reactions. (Now that I have that off my chest, let's get back to Fran. . . .) After I determined which herbs and supplements Fran could safely take together, I suggested that she also change her diet and incorporate mental imagery into her daily routine."

"Michael Rosenbaum, associate professor of clinical pediatrics and medicine at Columbia University's College of physicians and Surgeons, told me. "The interactions between the environment and any inherited (genetic) risk of these degenerative diseases really begins at the moment of conception and continues through childhood. You can't dismiss prenatal care or the way in which your child eats or exercises as 'unimportant.' Good prenatal care avoids fetal overnutrition, both of which carry an increased risk of adult disease," he said. "

"Never forget that physicians have been wrong before. And they don't have to live with the consequences if your child suffers from an adverse reaction to a vaccine. You do . . . and more important, your child does. As long as the medical establishment follows a one-size-fits-all vaccination policy, parents must evaluate each and every vaccine given to their children. We must do our homework and try to understand not only the vaccines themselves, and what is in them, but also the child's development, mental status, and his health status."

"It is a standard medical practice for physicians to use various drugs and procedures for purposes other than those for which they have been specifically approved by the FDA. This practice is referred to as off-label usage. For example, the procedure of Botox injections is approved only for facial tics, but it is used primarily as a cosmetic procedure for wrinkles. Similarly, it's estimated that approximately half of all cardiac medications are used for off-label purposes, as well as about 42 percent of all asthma drugs, and 34 percent of all allergy medications."

"When integrative physicians use EDTA for lead and other heavy metals in children, they virtually always use the calcium form of it, instead of disodium EDTA. Kids are somewhat more vulnerable to dangerous fluctuations in their calcium levels, and these fluctuations can occur with disodium EDTA, if the procedure is performed with a fast intravenous push, instead of a slower intravenous drip. Although these reactions are quite rare, they have occurred, and, as mentioned earlier, this inappropriate administration apparently caused the deaths of two children in recent years."

"At least, that was my thinking back then, and that perception is still conventional wisdom among most physicians. However, if I'd known then what I know now, I would have realized that almost all of Kyle's ancillary problems were actually contributing to his autism. It's still common these days for most doctors to overlook these contributory problems, because each problem by itself is usually insufficient to cause a major malfunction of the brain."

"Both of my parents were physicians with me being the fifth generation of physicians on my mother's side. I have been practicing anesthesiology in Honolulu for over twenty-five years. I have spent most of my youth, and as many free hours of my life as possible, in and on the ocean. Unfortunately I have always been exquisitely sensitive to sun exposure, becoming physically ill after a day in the sun, and always getting a burn no matter how much sunscreen, hats, and long shirts I put on."

"Also, physicians are over-prescribing antibiotics. When asked, 53% of Canadian consumers said they had been prescribed an antibiotic in the previous three years. That is a lot of antibiotic use. Antibiotics are very effective at killing bacteria in the body; however, you will recall that antibiotics do not kill just the bacteria that is making you sick. Antibiotics kill both the bad and the good bacteria. While antibiotics destroy the bad bacteria that is making you sick, they also kill the probiotics that are vital to your health and your immunity."

"Because the term often confuses patients (and physicians, too, on occasion), we will take time to explain exactly what it means. Insulin resistance is an impairment of the body's ability?specifically the liver, fat, and muscle cells—to use insulin to process glucose (sugar). As a result, glucose isn't handled properly by the body, and blood sugar levels rise. In the early stages of insulin resistance, the body recognizes that blood sugar levels are elevated, so the beta cells try to step up the secretion of insulin to overcome this cellular resistance."

"In Germany physicians still prescribe trips to the spa for what ails their patients. pick's lab: fanning the competitive fires As the philosopher Thomas Kuhn points out, new scientific theories are often brought about because of factors extrinsic to science: "Conversions occur not despite the fact that scientists are human but because they are."12 Kraepelin, known as the "pope" and "Linnaeus" of psychiatry, had amassed the respect and reputation that entitled him to name a disease after one of his loyal coworkers."

"I knew that physicians at the medical center had played key roles in the Adventist Health Study and had collected a wealth of data on Adventist behaviors. Julie Smith, LLUMC's director of public and media relations, took me on a quick tour, starting on the roof of the medical center where a pair of busy helicopter pads serves the only Level 1 trauma center in the area."

"Remembering when he and Dunbar Smith were both staff physicians at the Battle Creek Sanitarium and Hospital conducting five-day plans to stop smoking, Wayne recalled finding two pamphlets, "More Nuts & Less Meat" and "The Simple Life in a Nutshell" by Dr. Kellogg. Indeed, the apartment he shared with his wife had numerous bowls filled with nuts. Later, McFarland took me out to the same garden where Marge showed off her corn LOVE TO LAUGH Studies have found that a belly laugh a day may keep the doctor away."

"We see people get to age 98, or 103, or whatever, and as physicians we ask, what did they die of?" Fraser said. "We see they were experiencing heart failure, and their kidneys weren't so good, and everything was slowly deteriorating. So aging seems to be about deteriorating cellular function and metabolism and so forth. And what I am saying is that with the Adventists it almost looks as if that general deterioration and cellular function may be impacted by lifestyle. If so, that would be very interesting." My last stop in Southern California was a pancake house."

"An increasing number of progressive physicians are beginning to believe that a good portion of chronic disease has its roots in dental toxicity. While the best-known toxic dental material in use today is the controversial "silver" amalgam, which is over half mercury, many other potentially damaging metals (especially nickel and palladium) and nonmetallic restorative materials are also in widespread use in dentistry today. Progressive dentists are continually seeking and finding safer ways to practice dentistry by refining standard techniques and by testing materials for biocompatibility—i.e."

"Such exposure can give rise to environmental illness, a growing problem today estimated to affect 40 million Americans (and an area of specialization for some progressive physicians). We tend to have some idea that the products under the sink—like the stinky sprays, disinfectants, and bleaches—are quite hazardous, but we forget about all the other potential toxins in our daily routines."
