"University of Maryland Medical School has been the pioneer and the prime mover in popularizing IPg with inositol for cancer treatment and is one of several researchers who has validated the amazing antitumor properties of this natural food supplement. Scientists worldwide have convened to discuss IPg's important contributions to human health, as in the case of the 1998 Kyoto Conference."

"As high-fiber diets and regular consumption of green tea have been shown to markedly reduce people's risks for many types of diseases, including cancer, and the fact that it is the IPg in grains and green tea that is largely responsible for these foods' anticancer effects, taking IP^ in supplement form can produce similar results. RESEARCH Research supports IPg with inositol's use in helping to prevent or reduce the risk of human colon, prostate, breast, and a wide range of other cancers, as well as other disease conditions such as kidney stones and circulatory blockage."

"The red clover supplement is known to contain four isoflavones that are important in an Asian diet: biochanin A, genistein, formononetin, and daidzein. This is powerful evidence for red clover, thus indicating the use of Flor-Essence as an aid in prostate cancer treatment. A growing number of physicians are recognizing the importance of natural adjuncts to therapy and are recommending the use of Flor-Essence. Michael Schachter, M.D., F.A.C.A.M."

"In the December 2002 issue of Cancer, Epidemiology, Biomarkers and Prevention, researchers at Monash University, Australia, reported on a study in which they gave a group of 20 men with prostate cancer a supplement of red clover. Samples of tissue from these men showed fewer prostate cancer cells than tissue from a control group of patients. The incidence of cancer cell death (i.e., apoptosis) was five times greater in the group treated with red clover."

"It would be wise to tighten up the diet by following the nutritional laws and principles described in this book and to supplement this by taking the optimum amount of vitamin C and a good B-complex vitamin preparation. Many people are surprised after they have been following this vitamin program for several months how much better they feel. In our view, your state of health ought to be so good that there is no deterioration toward the end of your life. Many years ago a high-school teacher came to our office with his identical twin schizophrenic brother."

"Dose: Use a supplement that brings 25-50 mg of zinc into your system daily if you use H2 blockers. Iron H2 blockers and antacids deplete this mineral. Others at risk, or who might have increased risk beyond that created by GI medications: • Women who are still menstruating regularly are at the greatest risk of starting out deficient in iron. Deficiency is less common in postmenopausal women and men, who don't lose iron each month. • Vegetarians, adolescent girls, people who have bleeding ulcers, and pregnant women are all at increased risk for iron deficiency."

"If you are taking medication, be sure to supplement with the cofactors that make neurotransmitters, especially the B vitamins. By combining medication with nutrients, you will most likely cut down the dose needed, and so have fewer and milder side effects, and an overall better quality of life. For depletions: • If taking tricyclics, take 25 mg B2 and 30-100 mg CoQ10. • If taking the MAOI phenelzine (Nardil), take 25-50 mg B6. • If taking lithium, take 400-800 meg folic acid and 250-1,000 mg inositol in divided doses."

"The best food sources of carnitine are red meats like steak and ground beef, but even those sources offer only about 80 mg per serving—far less than the amount recommended as a supplement. Carnitine at high doses (more than 2 grams or 2,000 mg a day) can reduce thyroid hormone activity or the effectiveness of thyroid hormone replacement. • Copper: 2-3 mg per day—a dose you should be able to get from your multivitamin. Copper is a component of hemoglobin, the protein that carries oxygen in the red blood cells."

"Note: To take this high a dose of EPA/DHA without swallowing a dozen capsules a day, you will need to use a highly concentrated fish oil supplement that's 90 percent composed of these fatty acids. Vitamin D Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin that's made in the skin during exposure to sunlight. It's also abundant in liver, fish liver oils, and fortified dairy products, egg yolks, salmon, sardines, cream, butter, and liver. Symptoms of vitamin D deficiency include unexplained weakness, pain in the joints, and depression, especially seasonal affective disorder (SAD)."

"The difference between a whole food supplement and a multivitamin supplement is that the whole food supplement is made from real foods in their natural form. The nutrients are not synthetic or derived from a whole food source. The source is the actual food. The reason these are fantastic products is because your body recognizes them for what they are... real food! Some great whole food supplements are: • Dr."

"And no medicine or supplement can make up for lack of physical activity when it comes to looking and feeling your best. You and you alone have the power to make the right choices for yourself—the choices that shift into greater wellness: to take a walk rather than watch TV, or to eat a healthy salad instead of fast food. Take your daily multi, eat a healthy diet, and exercise daily, and you will be well on your way to good health. Adding extra nutrients to help offset drug-induced depletions is the next step."

"Dosage The best way to supplement with betaine HCI is to swallow 1 capsule of betaine HCI with every large meal. The next day, 2 betaine HCI capsules are taken with every large meal. Do this until you are taking 6 capsules with every large meal, or stop at the dose that causes you to experience some warmth or slight burning in your stomach. The slight burning or warmth indicates that stomach tolerance has been achieved. At this point, if your stomach feels too irritated, you can swallow 1 teaspoon of baking soda dissolved in a glass of water for immediate relief."

"Vitamin C Vitamin C is the best known and most popular vitamin supplement, partly due to its historical role in preventing scurvy and partly due to the so-called vitamin C controversy. Besides preventing scurvy, vitamin C is our chief antioxidant, effective in treating arteriosclerosis, low stomach acid, various cancers, and aging conditions when taken in optimum doses. Scurvy Scurvy is a vitamin C (ascorbic acid) deficiency disease. When we do not get enough vitamin C in our food, we all become scorbutic."

"For optimal health and longevity, it is recommended to supplement with 15,000 to 25,000 IU of mixed carotenoids (includes beta-carotene and other carotenoids) daily. For problems of the female reproductive system, doses of 25,000 to 50,000 IU of beta-carotene should be taken. For the prevention of macular degeneration, the use of zinc, antioxidants, and beta-carotene seems very prudent. In addition, the use of lutein should be provided at a dose of 5 mg two to three times each day. For idiopathic male infertility, 4 to 5 mg of lycopene daily seems warranted."

"Adults: high-quality supplement (wild-caught salmon oil, DHA/EPA concentrate, or cod-liver oil) 3. Flavonoids (grapeseed extract is one of our favorites) 4. Probiotics (friendly bacteria) A High-Potency Multiple Vitamin and Mineral Formula Your body needs essential vitamins and minerals—each in the right amount—for your tissues to do their jobs. Every one of your billions of cells must have the right building blocks in order to function properly. One of the most crucial functions of vitamins and minerals is in the manufacture of enzymes—molecules that trigger and control chemical reactions."

"When selecting a fish oil supplement, it is essential to use a brand that you trust. Quality control is an absolute must to ensure that the product is free from heavy metals, especially mercury, damaged fats (lipid peroxides), PCBs, and dioxins and other contaminants. Some brands that we recommend are Natural Factors, Carlson, and Nordic Naturals. These brands are widely available at your local health food store. For children, we particularly like the Carlson brand flavored cod-liver oil or the one made by Nordic Naturals."

"Preventing and Treating Syndrome X The dietary, lifestyle, and supplement strategies presented in this book for the prevention and treatment of type 2 diabetes are paramount to the prevention and treatment of syndrome X as well. The key purpose of these strategies is to increase the sensitivity of cells throughout the body to insulin. It is well-established that the safest, most effective, most preferred way to improve insulin sensitivity in patients with insulin resistance or syndrome X is weight loss and increased physical activity."

"Calcium intake should therefore be supplemented with a calcium-magnesium combination supplement. The right kind of fat is necessary for calcium availability in the soft tissues and to promote calcium elevation in the bloodstream so that muscles contract properly and maintain their tone, nerves function smoothly, blood clots when needed, and bones and teeth remain strong and healthy. Women who believe they are getting enough calcium through diet and supplements may be sabotaging themselves if they do not include enough of the right oils (i.e."

"This chapter will give you an overview of the depletions you can expect with these medications and how to supplement them. Many of the dosages can be found in a high-potency daily multivitamin; if the dosage of one or more nutrients falls short of these recommendations, you can add more of individual nutrients as needed. I'll cover these drugs in alphabetical order, mostly by their drug class or indication, with a few individual drugs in each class. ?AIDS medications ?Antibiotics ?Anticonvulsants (used to treat epilepsy and bipolar disorder) ?Anti-obesity drugs ?"

"One last example: People who take supplements are healthier than the population at large, yet their health probably has nothing whatsoever to do with the supplements they take— most of which recent studies have suggested are worthless. supplement takers tend to be better educated, more affluent people who, almost by definition, take a greater than usual interest in personal health—confounders that probably account for their superior health."

"Take an aged garlic supplement daily. Milk thistle (Silybum marianum) (80 to 85 percent silymarin) supports liver function while you use pharmaceutical medications for HIV/AIDS. Take 250 to 300 mg three times daily. Aloe {Aloe vera) has antiviral effects. Use a food-grade product, and take as directed on the container. Selenium has antiviral effects. Take a daily dosage of 400 meg. Maitake {Grifola frondosa) supports immune function and has antiviral properties. Take 1 mg of the MD or D fraction per 2.2 pounds of body weight daily."

"That's why a good vitamin and mineral supplement is necessary." "Is there a special diet for older people? " Kevin L. Snead: "I don't put older people on special diets. I recommend a balanced diet along with a good vitamin and mineral supplement. It's important that they get enough protein and not just loading up on sugar and carbohydrates. As for carbohydrates there are better carbohydrates and sugar carbohydrates. I suggest they go for the better carbohydrates." "What would you say are the better carbohydrates? " Kevin L."

"Well aware that seeds germinate in the ground, they deliberately planted einkorn and wheat to supplement dwindling wild stands and to increase food supplies. The supplements soon became staples. Within a few generations, the foragers became full-time farmers.4 Abu Hureyra grew rapidly into a compact village of mud-brick houses separated by narrow alleyways, remarkably like many farming settlements in the region as recently as the nineteenth century. Now wheat and barley fields lapped the edges of the settlement, and there was just enough to eat in good rainfall years."

Vitamin K is required for proper blood clotting. It is normally made by intestinal bacteria, but those good bugs are killed off by antibiotic therapy. Deficiency is rare, but when it occurs, life-threatening bleeding can result from the smallest injury. Vitamin K may also play a part in bone health and osteoporosis prevention. Your multivitamin should provide 30-100 meg, which is an adequate dose."

"A is more bioavailable in supplement than in spinach or sweet potato). On the other hand, lycopene is more available from eggs than from supplements, and cooking tomatoes increases its availability. The usability of vitamins in food varies with the method of preparation. "Far too little is known about nutrient availability as a function of plant variety and maturity." The old canard—more research is needed—is surely true here. What are we to make of all this?"
