"It is far easier to document and quantify procedures for reimbursement than it is to document and quantify lifestyle changes that prevent the need for such procedures in the first place. As a physician, I am embarrassed by my profession's lack of interest in healthier lifestyles. We need to change the way we approach chronic disease. The work I will describe in the following chapters confirms that sustained nutrition changes and, when necessary, low doses of cholesterol-reducing medication will offer maximum protection from vascular disease."

"The goal of the NDEP is to improve the treatment and prognosis of diabetics, to promote early diagnosis, and to prevent or delay the onset of diabetes.

"Our goal is to prevent diabetes or, if you already have the disease, greatly enhance your quality of life and alleviate the impact of potentially deadly diabetic complications. How can you achieve these goals? The journey begins with your molecular makeup. Despite what you may believe, it is not inevitable that you will develop diabetes, be obese, have high blood pressure, or have a heart attack (or a second heart attack) just because you have a family history and it's "in your genes."

"Present governmental and national heath organization guidelines do not provide a maximal opportunity to either arrest or prevent coronary artery disease. Studies demonstrate persons following present guidelines will have increased rates of disease progression when compared to persons achieving lower serum lipid levels through diet and/or lipid-lowering drugs. "A diet which would achieve superior results in reducing atherosclerosis would be a 10-15 percent fat diet provided largely by grains, legumes, vegetables, and fruit."

"Two of the experts who originally discovered the benefits of DPP-4 note that because drugs like sitagliptin stimulate beta-cell function, they will likely work best in people who have prediabetes, because these people still have enough beta cells that can be "urged" to prevent progression of the disease. Once people are diagnosed with diabetes, only about 50 percent of normal beta-cell function remains. Studies of sitagliptin show that it can reduce Hb A levels by nearly 3 percent in patients who start with high Hb A]c levels, which is significantly better than other available drugs."

"Thus, it acts to potentiate cellular functions and at the same time to prevent a decrease of immune functions of the tumor-bearing host. The author of one such report noted that of all the medicinal mushrooms he has studied for the past 15 years, the maitake mushroom has the strongest activity in tumor growth inhibition, both when administered orally and intraperitoneally."

"The researchers also noted that the mushrooms helped prevent a significant depression in lymphocyte and NK cell activity. Maitake induces release of cytokines. Another way that maitake's beta-glucans may help is by stimulation of tumor inhibitors. In these and other experimental models, systemic macrophage activation and certain cytokine releases seem to be critical for freeing tissues of tumor cells and inhibiting metastasis. In 1995, Dr."

"In addition, silver-based health care protocols are still followed today: Silver nitrate is used to prevent blindness in infants, silver salve is used topically to treat burns, and oligodynamic silver formulations are used as a safe and effective alternative to antibiotics, especially useful for fighting antibiotic-resistant bacteria. HISTORY Used throughout history for healing and purification, silver rose to popularity during the first half of the 1900s, when in excess of several million people worldwide were given intravenous silver medicinals, according to Eric J. Rentz, D.O., M."

"This very question helped spur the ALLHAT (Antihypertensive and Lipid-Lowering Treatment to prevent Heart Attack Trial), the largest hypertension clinical trial ever conducted, back in 2002. The experts looked at three different classes of medication for high blood pressure: a thiazide diuretic (chlorthalidone [Hygroton, Thalitone]), an ACE inhibitor (lisinopril [Zestril, Prinivilj), and a calcium channel-blocker (amlodipine [Norvasc])."

"Rather than detour around it, squish it with a balloon or brace it open with a wire bracket—either of which is just a temporary angina-relieving procedure—my program can prevent disease altogether, or stop it in its tracks. All the interventional procedures carry considerable risk of morbidity, including new heart attacks, strokes, infections, and, for some, an inevitable loss of cognition. Mine carries none. And the benefits of intervention erode with the passage of time; eventually, you have to have another angioplasty, another bypass procedure, another stent."

"They do nothing at all to cure the underlying disease or to prevent its development in other potential victims. I believe that we in the medical profession have taken the wrong course. It is as if we were simply standing by, watching millions of people march over a cliff, and then intervening in a desperate, last-minute attempt to save them once they have fallen over the edge. Instead, we should be teaching them how to avoid the chasm entirely, how to walk parallel to the precipice so that they will never fall at all."

"These motions rehabilitate and prevent the elastic ocular capabilities of the visual field from narrowing. This narrowing occurs because of the habitual wearing of glasses. PVS restores these necessary capabilities of the natural eye—like strength and flexibility—needed for optimal saccadic movement and clear vision. Retinal Defocus: Active Emmetropization and SAID Principle Active emmetropization is a phenomenon in which the eye adjusts its focal status to its environment."
- David De Angelis, The Secret of Perfect Vision: How You Can prevent and Reverse Nearsightedness (Get the book.)

"We should terminate the idea that nothing can be done to prevent and reverse nearsightedness. The idea that there is nothing you can do but purchase either expensive negative-lens glasses or contact lenses is a tragic mistake. If we fail to learn this lesson, we will be stuck with being nearsighted for the rest of our lives. Chapter 2 The Power Vision Test Verification of Symmetry, Convergence, and Coordination of the Extrinsic Ocular Muscles The Power Vision System (PVS) is based upon training the ocular muscles in order to correct their lack of strength, flexibility, and coordination."

"By terminating the stimulation of the lenses at the right moment, you can prevent myopia from becoming "hypermetro-pia," a potential consequence of adaptation of the SAID Principle to the focal state imposed by positive lenses (myopic defocus). By using this concept of accommodative balance, we can control the focal state of the eye to meet our distant visual requirements—of maintaining clear distance vision for life. (See the section on Accommodative Balance in Chapter 2."

"Pseudo-myopia is usually a transitory phenomenon but can in time become permanent if nothing is done to prevent the near environment (Curtin, 1985). As Young (1971) proposed, the process of developing myopia proceeds in two phases: 1. The first is characterized by a change of accommodative tonus (accommodative spasm due to hyperaccommodation) that makes the ciliary muscle contract. 2. In the second phase, this condition of continuous stress leads to an increase in the globe's axis. This is described as the standard condition of a nearsighted eye."

"Concluding that dietary and physical activity recommendations for healthful living are inextricably intertwined, the IOM presented physical activity as the primary means by which a person can vary energy expenditure to balance dietary energy intake once BEE and obligatory thermogen-esis (see later discussion) in the healthy population are covered [16, 17]."

"United States, including vast parts of the Midwest, for years commercial salt has been iodized to prevent gross deficiencies. Large amounts of iodine, however, may be beneficial. Jorge D. Flechas, M.D., of Hendersonville, North Carolina, has reported that large doses of iodine are especially helpful for people with diabetes. He has found that supplemental high-dose iodine leads to a normalization of HbAlc and blood-sugar levels, and some patients also lose substantial amounts of weight."

"One of the first and most promising foods to be studied was flaxseed. It had been previously discovered that flaxseed contained phytochemicals known as lignans within the cell matrix of its seed. Much of the interest surrounding plant lignans is based on the suspected association between them and the low incidence of breast and colon cancers of those consuming a plant- and grain-based vegetarian diet. Flaxseed, in particular, contains 100 to 800 times more plant lignans than its closest competitors, wheat bran, rye, buckwheat, millet, soybeans, and oats."

"Because most researchers do not have the capability to measure either caloric intake or energy expenditure accurately enough to assess the independent contribution of either side of the equation or of the individual components of energy expenditure discussed below, accumulating evidence regarding the validity of this estimate, for the general population, study cohorts, or even individuals, poses a major challenge. IV."

"You can also engage in other types of physical activity, such as cycling, swimming, using hand weights, or a mix of several types of activities to prevent boredom. Try to avoid talking on your cell phone while walking, though, because the distraction will slow down your pace. By week 3, you might be able to include small amounts of starchy foods, such as brown rice or part of a baked sweet potato with your meals. If you have a problem limiting yourself to small portions, however, it's best to hold off eating such foods for at least two more weeks."

"It reflects institutionalized failure to prevent cancer in spite of overwhelming documented evidence on its avoidable causes."3 Cancer prevention is by far the most cost-effective and humane approach to the disease. It is the proverbial elephant in the hospital room, yet the National Cancer Institute has explicitly excised prevention from its core focus on basic research, diagnosis, and treatment. NCI Director Dr. Richard Klausner objected to the suggestion of emphasizing cancer prevention as "a very unhelpful and false argument. "4 The NCI has consis-tenly prevented prevention. Dr."

"The first is when the benefit of the food concerns a classical essential nutrient deficiency disease (e.g., pellagra, scurvy); and the second is when the benefit is represented in conformance with a "health claim" authorized by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The room for health claims is limited, however, because a claim will not be authorized for food unless the benefit the claim would convey is supported by scientific evidence concerning the relationship between a specifically identified food "substance" and a particular disease condition."

"Cardiovascular disease (CVD), the leading cause of mortality in most industrialized countries, is a multifactorial disease that is associated with nonmodifiable risk factors, such as age, gender, and genetic background, and with modifiable risk factors, including elevated total and low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol levels, as well as reduced high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol levels."

"In the rest of the book, we coach you on how to prevent and reverse prediabetes and lose weight. To jump-start our recommendations, we list some of the foods that actually curb appetite. When you eat less, both your weight and your blood sugar will improve. We advise you on how to be a smarter shopper—what foods to avoid and which ones you can safely eat. We take a similar approach to ordering in restaurants so that you aren't sabotaged when eating out. We also explain some of the basics of preparing healthy, simple, and quick meals at home."

"Meanwhile, research has shown that chromium picolinate helps to prevent weight gain associated with the use of the diabetic drug glipizide (Glucotrol). Other forms of chromium, such as chromium glycinate chelate, may work as well. Regardless of the specific form, the research on chromium and diabetes points to the greater efficacy of higher dosages, so we recommend trying 500 meg twice daily. Another product, Super CitriMax, combines chromium polynicotinate with calcium and potassium hydroxycitrates, which together seem to reduce appetite and may help with weight loss. Omega-3 fish oils."

"Eating between meals changes powerful hormonal signals that prevent the breakdown of fat, gum up liver metabolism, and induce calories to head for fat storage. This fact is a primary feature governing how food can induce stressful problems with hormone balance. Taking the time to understand why this is the case is important to learning the skill of mastering leptin and being an effective Health Asset Manager™. HOW INSULIN WORKS The pancreas secretes two hormones that regulate blood sugar: insulin and glucagon. These two hormones play crucial roles in how the body regulates fuel utilization."

"Little or no attention is given to why cancer occurred in the first place, what is fueling it in the present, or how to restore natural balance in such a way as to prevent it from coming back. It is much easier to do the treatments and drugs, hoping that the physical body can tolerate the treatment long enough to kill the cancer. It is common knowledge that many forms of cancer are resistant to current medical therapies. This type of medical thinking evolved with the creation of immunizations and was reinforced with the discovery of antibiotics."

"It took American health officials 10 years to admit folic acid should be given to prevent 50,000 neural tube defects a year. Considering we are facing an obesity epidemic, how long will the public warnings take this time? Many of the new studies on leptin focus on cardiovascular health. It is now recognized in the scientific literature that leptin problems are a primary cause of cardiovascular disease. Leptin problems are directly involved with high cholesterol, high blood pressure, risk for stroke, and risk for heart attack."

"Zinc: Zinc increases the rate of healing and can prevent damage to the stomach lining. Dosage: 50-100 mg daily. Vitamin A: Vitamin A is protective and promotes healing of gastric ulcers. Dosage: 10,000-25,000 IU daily. Pregnant women should not exceed 10,000 IU vitamin A. Pancreas The pancreas secretes bicarbonates into the duodenum. This is essentially baking soda which neutralizes the acidity of chyme so that it won't burn the internal tissues of the intestines. The pancreas also secretes enzymes which digest carbohydrates, protein and fats."
