"Homeopathy Most Popular Alternative therapy in Italy, New Study Shows Reported by Dr. Elvira Draga, Global Insight, August 30,2007 Results from a healthcare study involving 60,000 families in Italy, found that homeopathy is the most popular alternative therapy in the country, with around 7% of Italians having been treated homeopathically. Women are more likely to have tried alternative therapy, with 15.8% of women having tried at least one form of alternative medicine, compared to 11.2% of men. The second most popular alternative therapy is osteopathy and chiropractic treatments with 6."

"It was said that, over a decade in the UK, an estimated 20,000 cases of breast cancer among women aged 50-64 could be attributable to HRT - 15,000 of these among women on combination therapy.60 A North American research paper estimated that cases of breast cancer in the US caused by HRT could be 120,000.61 In March 2004, the Women's Health Initiative study found that the use of oestrogen supplementation increased the risk of strokes, while showing no signs of averting heart attacks as its manufacturers and prescribing physicians had claimed."

"ANeveu, "Official Medicine saw in magnesium chloride therapy a threat to its new and growing business: vaccinations." In the 1940's Dr. Neveu used the magnesium chloride solution in a case of diphtheria to reduce the risks of anaphylactic reaction due to the anti-diphtheria serum that he was ready to administer. To his great surprise, when the next day the laboratory results confirmed the diagnosis of diphtheria, the little girl was completely cured, before he could use the serum."

"This book, which prised open a massive new market for Wyeth-Ayerst's oestrogen therapy Premarin, crudely set about undermining the security of middle-aged women and eliciting the help of their male partners in getting them hooked on Premarin. It played on women's guilt about the family, fears of the possible onset of illness in old age, and insecurity over being left by their partners as they 'came down with' the menopause."

"By 1995, the packet literature issued with Premarin, although trumpeting in bold print in an accompanying booklet the low risk of breast cancer if taken at low doses , stated in the small print: 'Some studies have suggested a possible increased incidence of breast cancer in those women on oestrogen therapy taking high doses for prolonged periods of time (five years or more) ... '57 Wyeth directors just crossed their fingers, hopeful that no one would make much fuss, and watched the dollars pour in. iff m 55 Steinberg KK, Thacker SB, Smith SJ, Stroup DF, Zack MM, Flanders WD, et al."

"One of the long-standing selling points of oestrogen therapy had been that it warded off breast cancer. Researchers found that after 15 years of taking ERT, the probability of a woman developing cancer doubled.52 Also in 1976, in one of the rare public admissions in medicine, Dr Robert W. Kistner, professor of obstetrics and gynaecology at Harvard Medical School, who had previously defended the Pill and oestrogen replacement, told the Washington Post that he retracted all his earlier statements. The medical use of oestrogen in menopause could, he said, 'not be substantiated'."

"A zinc supplement added to oral rehydration therapy aids the therapy. This therapy can be helpful until the child is rehydrated and strong enough to recover with normal water and food. The Acid-Alkaline Balance The blood must be maintained in a narrow range of acidity. Acidity is measured on a pH (potential of hydrogen) scale. Normal values for blood are between 7.35 and 7.45 on the pH scale. Water is used as a reference as pH 7, which is considered neutral. Values higher than pH 7 are considered alkaline (also known as base). Baking soda has an alkaline pH of 9."

"Special Cautions: • Because DHEA may be converted into estrogen, women with breast, uterine, or ovarian cancer are advised not to begin DHEA therapy, which may increase the severity of their cancer. Healthy women taking DHEA should also monitor their blood levels of estrogen and free testosterone to make sure that DHEA is not affecting these other sex hormones detrimentally. • Men should not begin DHEA therapy before having their prostate-specific antigen (PSA) levels tested and undergoing a digital rectal exam, to measure the size and consistency of the prostate."

"The drug is used in therapy for diseases of the autonomic nervous system. It prevents muscle contractions. Gives relief in muscle spasm associated with Parkinson's disease. The drug relaxes the muscles of the gastrointestinal, bronchial and urinary tracts and reduces digestive and mucous secretions.

"This therapy was also recommended in a lower dose of 10 g, increasing the dose 10 g per day up to 120 g (Vrindamaadhava). (In current practice, increasing doses of ginger juice, used as a strong diuretic, was not found efficacious in dropsy and chronic heart diseases.) Water processed with Balaa (Sida cordifolia) or Prishnparni (Uraria picta) or Kantakaari (Solanum surattense) and added with Shunthi, was prescribed by Charaka as an antinarcotic drink in cases of alcoholism."

"Dosage was split with 18 mg given at breakfast and 18 mg zinc with supper. The result was a bone marrow remission from 95+% blast cells to an observed zero blast cell count in both hips within the first 14 days of treatment which never relapsed.14 Dr. Mathais Rath wrote that "500 years ago, the Roman church was making billions of Thaler (early dollars) by selling indulgences, an imaginary "key to heaven" for its believers. Then the fraud scheme collapsed and with it much of the power of the church. Today, the pharma business uses the same fraud scheme."

"However, it has recently been used more as a source of the isoflavones, for a natural method of hormone replacement therapy. The isoflavones are oestrogenic in animals but the clinical use for menopausal women has not yet been well supported by clinical studies, except for a beneficial effect on hot flushes (see Burdette et al 2002, Fugh-Berman et al 2001). An extract was found to reduce pain in a small, randomized, placebo-controlled trial of women with cyclical mastalgia (Ingram et al 2001)."

"If, for example, a plant is readily available and has the potential to provide inexpensive therapy for the treatment of disease, then a product may well be produced. It is within this particular area of endeavour that scientists, particularly academics, can collaborate with clinicians. Pharmacognosy, once considered to be moribund, has the potential for a very bright future in this new millennium and it has been forecast that it will provide new lead compounds (Verpoorte 2000)."

"The taste of the solution is not very good (it has a bitter-saltish flavor) so a little of fruit juice (grapefruit, orange, lemon) can be added to the solution, or it can be even used in the place of water to make the solution itself. For CHRONIC diseases the standard treatment is one dose morning and evening for a long period (several months at least, but it can be continued for years). In ACUTE diseases the dose is administered every 6 hours (every 3 hours the first two doses if the case is serious); then space every 8 hours and then 12 hours as improvement goes on."

"Keith Brewer, founder of the Brewer International Science Library, conducted experiments on mice and humans to study the effect of high pH therapy on cancer.16 The tumors in the mice shrank substantially within two weeks. In the 30 humans involved in the study all of the pain and side effects associated with the cancer disappeared within three days and the tumors began to shrink, although the longer the patient had participated in chemotherapy, the longer it took him or her to react to the pH therapy."

"All of the patients were told to take standard triple therapy for AIDS (protease inhibitors plus two anti-retroviral drugs such as AZT) but to continue their medical treatment in every other regard. Because the triple therapy appeared to be making a profound difference on mortality rates in AIDS patients, Elisabeth assumed that, this time, no one in either group would actually die. This meant she needed to change the result she was aiming for. In the new study, she was looking for whether distant healing could slow down the progression of AIDS."

"Chelation therapy has two pronounced effects on the body. 1. It chelates (or claws) onto heavy metals such as aluminum, lead, and mercury (particularly those located in the cardiovascular system) and pulls them out of your body. 2. By removing heavy metals from the body, chelation therapy significantly reduces the production of free radicals in the blood stream and the consequent scarring of the arterial walls. The net result for most people is a dramatic improvement in the health and condition of theit cardiovascular system."

"Plant-derived medicines are useful therapeutic options and often provide a safe form of therapy, and in many instances specific phytomedicines have been shown to be clinically effective. In most continental European countries, such phytomedicines are licensed medicinal products and are used under medical supervision. However, the widespread use of herbal medicines by the general public raises several important issues."

"Bhattacharyya, in The Science of Cosmic Ray therapy, believes that this type of analysis can be done with the photograph of a patient, and he goes even further to state that changes in the human organs are reflected in the photograph (Baroda 1957). These experiments in radionics deal with effects far more fundamental than the physical since all matter is ultimately vibration. The obvious conclusion to be reached is that well-being is the result of harmony within the complex system of vibration involved in the organic structure of the body."

"Before long, Spiegel and some of his patients had accepted an invitation to appear on the television talk show Oprah, and a few years later his group therapy was profiled in the Public Broadcasting Service's 1993 blockbuster documentary Healing and the Mind. There on television, before millions of viewers, journalist Bill Moyers asked Spiegel, "If the findings of your study are replicated, what do you think it means for medicine?" Spiegel responded forcefully: [W]hat it means is that we have to change the definition of what health care is. . . ."
- Anne Harrington, The Cure Within: A History of Mind-Body Medicine (Get the book.)

"In addition, since most educated cancer patients by now had heard that joining a support group was likely to improve their odds of survival, it was likely that, when they were randomized to the control group, some patients looked outside the study for other forms of social support and group therapy.71 Spiegel himself, who had been due to complete a replication study of his own in 2000, decided he was not ready to publish. His own data were not clearly supporting the original hypothesis. His team instead sought funding for an additional five years."

"All these effects build on each other in combination therapy, according to Penny Kris-Etherton, PhD, RD, nutrition professor and researcher at Pennsylvania State University in University Park. The bottom line in this case: "It's more effective to have lower doses of multiple agents acting in different ways than a lot of one agent acting by one mechanism," explains Dr. Kris-Etherton. Fish omega-3s may up the need for vitamin E. To prevent heart disease, a number of experts recommend aiming for about 0."

"On consecutive nights, viewers were introduced to discussions of ancient Eastern healing practices, meditation, group therapy, the healing power of community, stress reduction, placebo healing, and various perspectives on the science behind it all. The initial broadcast by the Public Broadcasting Service was viewed by more than twenty-four million Americans, and its Doubleday companion book stayed on the bestseller list for twenty-three weeks."
