"Codex Ebers, a 3,550-year-old Egyptian medical papyrus, provided hundreds of therapeutic formulas, of which twenty-two used garlic. In 450 B.C., about one thousand years after Codex Ebers, Hippocrates considered garlic as one of the most important of his four hundred "simples," or therapeutic remedies. Among the therapeutic properties attributed to garlic in both Codex Ebers and Hippocrates' writings is its ability to stop tumors. Its use against tumors persisted throughout Asian and Western civilizations."

"Blocking this signal by interfering with ligand binding or turning the signal on by tricking the receptor are important therapeutic strategies. Drugs and toxins obtained from plants are often found to be ligands for medically important receptors, and they have taught us much about the operation of the body. They have also provided a starting point for the design of drugs with desired actions and fewer side effects. Several detailed examples are discussed in Chapter 7. Enzymes are also proteins, but rather than being involved in signaling processes, enzymes carry out chemical reactions."

"The targets that are interesting from a therapeutic view are those molecules and processes which are necessary for the cell to survive, or for an organ to function properly in the context of the entire organism. In broad terms, we can say that a certain organ could be a target. For instance, a drug might act primarily on the brain, or the lungs, or the heart. Organs are typically quite complex and have different types of tissues, structures, and cells within them."

"Waiting to Inhale: Medications Treatment for allergic and nonallergic asthma is similar, with the exceptions that removal of allergens is not part of the therapeutic approach toward nonallergic asthma and that antihistamines do not have therapeutic benefit. In addition, individuals with nonallergic asthma may need to take medications more long term, whereas those with allergic asthma may only need treatment when they are exposed to allergens (such as during springtime, when exposure to pollen is unavoidable)."

"And not without good reason: our recent understanding of the therapeutic uses of plants has revealed a number of significant issues which have the potential to impact on the quality, safety and efficacy of herbal products. It is therefore essential that all practitioners and students of herbal medicine, whatever their philosophical leanings, have the tools to understand and effectively manage these issues as they pertain to the wellbeing of their current or future patients."

"Apart from their nutritional value, these oils are widely used for specific therapeutic purposes, associated with cardiovascular, autoimmune and numerous other chronic diseases. Fixed oils are composed of fatty acids, hydrocarbon chains with a methyl (CH3) group at one end (il end), and a carboxyl group (COOH) at the other (8 end). The hydrocarbon chains may be up to 24 carbon atoms long."

"When pharmacologists look at this neurotransmission process, they see many ways to control it and potentially do something therapeutic. For example, drugs could be sought that prevent the vesicle from fusing with the cell membrane and releasing the neurotransmitter. Or a drug could be found that blocks the receptor from binding the neurotransmitter, and thus the ion channel won't open. Either of these actions would have the effect of reducing nerve impulse continuation."
- Bryan Hanson, PhD, Understanding Medicinal Plants: Their Chemistry And therapeutic Action (Get the book.)

"In fact, many herbal products have multiple therapeutic effects, which shouldn't surprise us—as we've learned, a variety of chemicals are present in any plant. Unfortunately, relatively few plants have been investigated in great detail. In this chapter we will look at several plants whose biological activity is fairly well understood. Some will likely be familiar, and others are not exactly the type of herbs you would plant in your garden or read about in the supermarket checkout aisle."

"Animal products such as egg yolks, red meat, and dairy fat are the primary dietary sources of saturated fat and cholesterol, and therefore reducing intake of these foods is an integral part of the "therapeutic lifestyle interventions" suggested in the guidelines."

"One can only hope," he wrote, "that the good judgment of the American physician will dissuade him from treating thousands of postoperative colon cancer patients with this toxic drug in the misinformed belief that it will provide them with therapeutic benefit." Two years later, in The New England Journal of Medicine, Moertel still maintained that 5FU had no clinical value. Yet he called for continued clinical research on the drug, offering this remarkable conclusion: "Patients and their families have a compelling need for a basis of hope."

"According to the Physician's Desk Reference: 2005, there is a therapeutic response within weeks, with a maximum response in about four months. This effect is seen in male and females, and has been documented particularly in elderly populations. This result is dose dependent—the higher the dose, the greater the effect. Second, are statins effective in primary prevention? A 2004 article in the New York Times relates a "joke" among cardiologists that the benefits of statins are so great that they "should be added to the water supply."

"Black, instead of evolving therapeutic alliances, like my relationship with Sister Marguerite. The illusion that newer is better and consumer autonomy is more important than a relationship with a trusted physician is leading to medical care that is often less effective and, at the same time, more expensive. Mr. Black's Celebrex cost about $90 per month, while offering little if any advantage over drugs that cost one-third to one-seventh as much (as we'll see in Chapter 3)."

"In other words, there is "a bidirectional relationship between cancer and depression, offering new opportunities for therapeutic interventions." Even before Spiegel's work, there was evidence that personal factors influenced the odds of getting a disease and surviving it. In a study of 28,000 cancer patients in New Mexico, researchers found that marital status influenced cancer survival. The proportion who survived at least five years was greater among married than unmarried persons, and this was true for both males and females, for all ages, and for all types and stages of cancer."

"Rather they promote "therapeutic lifestyle changes including a healthy diet" as the best form of primary prevention.10 How do we explain these disappointing and unexpected results? We might think that supplementary pills cannot substitute for nutrients in natural foods. Common sense would support the notion that taking a pill is not the same as eating. Yet, in general, nutritional supplements are highly "bioavailable," meaning that they can be readily used by the body. Nonetheless, nutrient-food interactions are complex."

"Few diagnostic tests and therapeutic interventions seemed as important as decreasing these patients' risk of sudden death. These so-called class I antiarrhythmic drugs* were routinely prescribed into the 1990s. It turned out that even though these drugs do effectively decrease the frequency of extra heartbeats, they increase the risk of death. One study documenting a higher death rate in people treated with these drugs was completed in 1980. The results, however, weren't published until 1993."

"A tendency to violence has been reported in 1 out of 16 SSRI users • In 70% of all murder/suicides involving women and children, the women were on SSRIs The Columbine Tragedy, et al • Specialized testing during the autopsy of Eric Harris, one of the Colombine shooters, showed "therapeutic" levels of an SSRI in his blood. In addition, he was also taking cough syrup."

"In 1907, Beard published The Enzyme Treatment of Cancer and its Scientific Basis, which summarized his therapeutic protocol and supportive evidence. The book was a sensation throughout Europe. During this period, many physicians, both in Europe and the United States, used injectable pancreatic enzymes to treat advanced human cancer. Their successes, when they occurred, were heartening, but depended on the quality of their materials. Many physicians did not recognize that the vitality of enzymes, as they were then used, lasted only hours."

"At therapeutic levels, antioxidants may actually play a significant role in reversing many of the effects of aging and disease. General Recommendations Over the years, I have formulated a number of antioxidant formulas for various companies. In fact, this is my specialty—the design of cutting edge nutritionals using standardized herbs and isolates. On the other hand, I have also become known as a strong advocate for the use of whole herbs and food complexes in all formulations. Why the appatent contradiction?"

"Pharmacological (or medicinal doses) are substantially higher than therapeutic doses—and are often accompanied by significant side effects. • Increased risk of autoimmune disorders such as lupus. • Fibrocystic breasts. • Fibroid tumors. • Depression and irritability. • PMS symptoms such as cramping and bloating—in addition to depression and irritability. • Menopausal symptoms such as hot flashes and night sweats—again, in addition to depression and irritability. • Decreased sex drive. • Increased body hair and thinning of scalp hair. • Migraine headaches."

"Giving them liquid zinc could be highly therapeutic, they found, confirming our earlier clinical observations," he says. "But they also found that a diet rich in zinc actually made the patients worse. We still do not understand why. A few years ago, I heard the head of the eating disorders program at the Gutenberg University in Sweden tell a radio audience that she believed that up to 100 percent of patients with eating disorders, including morbid obesity, were zinc deficient."

"That is why we've taken a great interest in what zinc does in the brain that might be of therapeutic value to people with various kinds of neurological psychiatric conditions. We've learned that when humans are placed on zinc-deficient diets, they develop eating disorders." People who are obese have been found to have lower zinc levels than nonobese people. Dr. Schauss explains, "In morbid obesity—when people are so significantly overweight that it could shorten their lifespan or increase their risk of disease—there is an inverse relationship between the level of obesity and the level of zinc."

"Psychiatrist Daniel Benor analyzed hundreds of cases of controlled experiments in spiritual and nonlocal healing and found significant evidence of positive therapeutic effect. The transfer of effect from healer to patient can be monitored and measured: it shows up in their EEG waves. C. Maxwell Cade of the Institute of Electrical Engineers in England tested the EEG patterns of over 3,000 people in various states of consciousness."

"Robert Atkins distinguishes between two types of depression, each with its respective type of therapeutic approach. "Clinically, you can divide depressions into two different categories: the apathetic depression where you just can't get interested in or enjoy anything, and the agitated or anxious depression, where basically you are depressed and nervous. The latter is responsive to increasing serotonin levels and is best treated with tryptophan. Tryptophan is extremely valuable in cases of agitated depression."

"Both agents have a measurable therapeutic effect on bmd. For women with prior vertebral fractures or a relatively low bmd, both agents decrease the incidence of vertebral fractures to the same degree, an absolute reduction in incidence of about 5 percent over three or so years of observation. Not surprisingly, the publications and the marketing emphasize the relative reductions, which get up to 40 percent or so because the incidence in the placebo groups is only around 10 percent."

"Use only therapeutic or homeopathic doses. Never, evet use pharmacological doses without a doctor's guidance. Estrogen and Progesterone Vital Information for Women (And Men) Every woman between the ages of 13 and 117 needs to seriously consider supplementation with a natural progesterone creme. Why? Because virtually every woman who lives in an industrialized country (the United States, in particular) is at high risk of estrogen dominance because of exposure to xenoestrogens."
