"In Scotland, a traditional wound ointment was made from the herb. Achillin has experimentally reduced clotting time without toxic side-effects (the decoction of the whole herb has the same effect in vitro and in vivo). The herb helps arrest internal and external bleeding. All these constituents confirm the key actions of the herb, as discussed earlier. Flowers are rich in active principles. When converted by steam into anti-allergenic compounds, can be used for various allergic catarrhal problems, incl. hay fever."

"Advances in technology are branching out from these traditional three forms of probiotics. Today, probiotics can be placed in a wide variety of food substances, opening the door to more ways for you to get probiotics into your diet. No matter what lifestyle, dietary restrictions or preferences you may have, there is sure to be an easy way to include probiotics in your daily life. Probiotics in traditional Foods Do you know which food(s) naturally include probiotics?"

"Hall and his acupuncturist colleague, Janice MacKenzie, combine traditional Chinese acupuncture with traditional Western medicine for a most untraditional approach to family practice in Wilmington, Delaware. "We treat the whole patient," says Dr. Hall. "We go beyond trying to alleviate the external symptoms and try to deal directly with the source of the patient's dis-ease." Of three basic types of acupuncture—traditional, symptomatic and anesthetic—Janice MacKenzie specializes in the most holistic of them, traditional acupuncture."

"In traditional medicine, the fruit juice is no more given internally. Used only externally in combination with other antiseptic herbs for treating arthritic swellings, obstinate skin diseases, for cleansing wounds. Bark in powder form is applied to sores to draw out purulent matter. Active principles and pharmacology Bark yields beta-sitosterol, cycloartenol, cycloar-tenone, alpha-amyrin acetate and lupeol acetate. It is a good source of soluble tannins. The heartwood contains artocarpin, norarto-carpin, norcycloartocarpin, cycloartocarpin, resorcinol and oxyresveratrol."

"This justifies its use in traditional medicine for dropsy, asthma and cough. Alcoholic and aqueous extracts of the leaves showed antibiotic action against Micrococcus pyogenes var. aureus and E. coli. The extract is used for leprosy as an antibacterial agent. Roots are astringent and are applied to wounds as haemostatic. The decoction of the root is used for stomach troubles and an equeous extract for stones in the bladder. The flowers, ground and mixed with curd and sugar, are given for menorrhagia. All these properties have been confirmed by various pharmacological studies."

"We will also have traditional island foods and featured island cocktails. All the while, a traditional beach band will be playing the sounds of the beach. Of course, dancing is optional . . . The drug industry did not stop its efforts in medical education with physicians. As I paged through postings of these events in Iowa, I found that Pfizer had paid in 2004 for occupational health nurses to lunch and attend a class at a sparkling new conference hall overlooking the Mississippi."

"All these traditional uses are to be treated as a part of folk medicine with few classical references. In China, the uses of Albizia julibrissin Durazz (known as Laal Shirish in India) are said to be similar to the Indian species, Albizia lebbeck. But medicinal applications are quite different. In China, dried bark is used in decoction for depression, restlessness and insomnia. Flowers are also used for poor memory, insomnia and as a tonic for weak nerves."

"Insulation. traditional types of insulation can be irritating to the skin, nose, throat, and lungs. Conventional fiberglass insulation might contain formaldehyde, a known carcinogen. Natural insulation products such as cotton, cellulose, and straw bales are filling a growing niche in the insulation market. Consumers need to consider a full range of aspects concerning insulation, including energy efficiency, the environmental impact of raw material acquisition, product performance, flammability, and recycled content."

"In fact, study participants who had traditional broad-spectrum light therapy raised their vitamin D levels only by half as much and didn't reduce their depression at all. So vitamin D replacement is more effective than light therapy for the treatment of seasonal affective disorder. We also see evidence that women and men with a history of depression have lower bone mass and more signs of bone turnover, both of which are associated with vitamin D deficiency, lack of omega-3 fatty acids, and dietary acid-base imbalance."

"This book empowers a new century of readers to see past traditional thinking and invest in the new science, simplicity, and success of lifestyle changes that can restore your body chemistry and grant you better health for the rest of your life. The Big Picture What I now know about health connections to vitamin D deficiency and diet has radically changed the way I view patient problems. All health problems are connected. A person's high blood pressure and diabetes are now part of the same disease that's causing his arthritis and bone disease."

"NOPAL CACTUS Nopal is prickly pear cactus, widely used as a traditional food throughout Latin America. Researchers57 gave eight fasting diabetics 500 grams of nopal. Five tests were performed on each subject, four with different cooked or raw preparations and one with water. After 180 minutes, fasting glucose was lowered 22-25 percent by nopal preparations, as compared to 6 percent by water. In a rabbit study, nopal improved tolerance of injected glucose by 33 percent (180-minute value for comparison) as compared to water."

"We do not really consider that a person is healed from the consciousness and physiology of diabetes until he or she has had two consecutive HgbAlc tests with results in the normal range, and has a regular FBS of 70 to 85 on a regular basis without the use of any traditional diabetic medications. CHAPTER 5 Happy Continuation: Living in the Culture of Life and Juice Feasting You are not what you are, rather, what you are is what you can be. The most interesting thing about life is that you can become more than you were before."

"The Native Americans include alaria (wakame-like), nori (laver), and kelp in their traditional diets. The Atlantic coastal people of Scandinavia, France, and the British Isles also have been eating sea vegetables for centuries. Gram for gram, they are higher in minerals and vitamins than any other class of food. They are rich in vitamins A, B, C, and E. The minerals in sea vegetables are found in similar ratios to those in the blood. Sea vegetables produce substantial amounts of proteins, complex carbohydrates, carotenes, and chlorophyll. For example, dulse and nori have 21.5 and 28."

"Unripe bitter melon is available at Asian markets, and the fresh juice is probably the best, per the traditional use in the studies. Bitter melon is difficult to make palatable, as its name implies. The best way to use this effective plant is to juice 2 ounces, and hold your nose as you drink it with celery-cucumber juice and some lemon. CUCUMBER Cucumber contains a hormone needed by the beta cells of the pancreas to produce insulin. The enzyme erepsin in cucumbers is targeted toward breaking down excessive protein in the kidneys."

"Portable Home Glucose Meters New, improved blood glucose meters are being introduced all the time, and they seem to be getting smaller, faster, and more sophisticated, requiring a smaller and smaller blood sample (and thus causing less pain) to get an accurate reading. traditional home blood glucose testing involves pricking your fingertip with a small, sharp needle (called a lancet) and placing the resulting drop of blood onto a disposable test strip that is inserted into a portable meter."

"This device is not meant to replace traditional fingertip blood glucose testing, and for good reason: the readings often are not accurate, it can irritate the skin, and it only works for twelve hours at a time. However, some people use it because they are prone to experiencing dangerously low blood sugar levels (hypoglycemia) overnight, and the Gluco Watch can be programmed to sound an alarm when it detects very low blood sugar levels. THE BOTTOM LINE We cannot stress enough how important it is for every aging adult to be screened for metabolic disease."

"The diabetics in the traditional low-intensity endurance-training segment of the trial, however, did not experience significant beneficial changes. Dynamic Versus Static Stretching: It Makes a Difference You've been told for years that it's best to stretch before exercising, and this is very sound advice. The question is, what's the best way to stretch? We believe that the best warm-up method to use before exercising—and closely guarded Eastern bloc sports medicine research from East Germany and the former Soviet Union supports this idea—incorporates joint mobility and dynamic stretching."

"These bottles might cost a little more than the traditional, BPA-containing bottles, but I think it's an expense most parents would consider legitimate. Remember never to heat any food or drink in plastic, including plastic wraps. The safest way to heat items is on a ceramic or glass plate or container. A baby's bottle can be heated under warm running water or with a bottle warmer. You should also avoid pacifiers with plastic nipples. Instead, look for silicone nipples, which are easy to find at most baby stores."

"If this research were grounded in traditional science backed by a prestigious university, the entire topic might be aired in a more scholarly way. He made plans for setting up a small program, and gave it a neutral name: Princeton Engineering Anomalies Research, which would thereafter always be known as PEAR. Jahn also resolved to take a low-key and lone-wolf approach by deliberately distancing himself from the various parapsychological associations and studiously avoiding any publicity."

"A great alternative to traditional baby shampoo is Jason Kids Only! Shampoo, which contains no SLS (sodium lauryl sulfate). Some other bathing guidelines: • Use 100 percent natural products, unscented, dye free, packaged in recycled or recyclable packaging. Make sure soaps contain no synthetic chemicals. • Buy products with the least amount of packaging to reduce unnecessary waste. • Buy products with the least amount of packaging to reduce unnecessary waste. • Avoid any petroleum-based/mineral oil-based formulas."

"An emergency-room nurse once told me that she's seen many babies come in drunk off the alcohol content in traditional toxic antibacterial products.) My family's favorite brand of natural antibacterials are Perx Organix (www.perxorganix. com), which are made from a delicious-smelling blend of chamomile, lemon, sage, and tea tree oils. We also really like the towelettes made by Herban Essentials (vvww.herbanessentials.com/ProductList.do). Noni Juice Noni, a fruit native to Tahiti and other South Sea islands, is excellent for the immune system."

"Just when modern medicine had almost eradicated the traditional childhood epidemics of measles, mumps, rubella, diphtheria, polio, and tetanus, these even more insidious new disorders began to haunt our children with unprecedented occurrence. The end of one set of epidemics and the beginning of the other was not a coincidence. The medical technology that defeated the old epidemics was created by America's burgeoning industrialism, and this industrialism also created the ubiquitously toxic environment that has indirectly triggered the new epidemics."

"However, most parents quickly realize that they can still cook in the traditional meat-and-potatoes fashion, and prepare wholesome and hearty meals that satisfy the whole family. In fact, parents sometimes even find that cooking becomes much easier when they create simple meals. There's nothing difficult about preparing a meal of grilled meat or fish, a salad, a potato, and a vegetable. These meals can be much less time consuming and fussy than more elaborate combinations of processed foods, sauces, and casseroles."

"It was hard for some of these physicians and researchers to look beyond their traditional training, but they had discovered that when their own children had begun to suffer, it had forced them past philosophical attachments into pure pragmatism. It was at one of these conferences that I met Dr. Usman. After I finished a lecture, she approached me, accompanied by six-year-old Priya, and by her two younger daughters, who also had serious problems. Anju was fascinated by the fact that I thought asthma could sometimes be reversed-except for rare, mild symptoms-by modulating the immune system."

"This acquisition of a more sophisticated palate is similar to an adult learning to dislike traditional kid-foods, such as canned spaghetti, chocolate cereal, or Gummi Bears. What primarily makes the GF/CF diet practical, though, are the substitutes for foods with gluten and casein. The substitutes taste really good, and are easy to find. For example, most cream sauces can be made with rice milk or soy milk, and it's easy to find great-tasting rice bread, soy ice cream, rice-flour cookies, and cakes, puddings, and biscuits made from soy flour or rice flour."

"Pribram largely left it to others to test his views so that he wouldn't jeopardize his more traditional laboratory work by being associated with his own revolutionary notions. For some years his theory languished. He would have to wait several decades after his initial proposal for other pioneers in the scientific community to catch up with him. His most important support was from an unlikely source: a German trying to make a medical diagnostic machine work better."

"According to the theory of traditional Chinese medicine, the human body has a meridian system running deep in the tissues of the body through which flows an invisible energy which the Chinese term 'the qi, or life force. The qi supposedly enters the body through these acupuncture points and flows to deeper organ structures (which do not correspond to those of Western human biology), providing energy (and thus the life force). Illness occurs when there is a blockage of this energy anywhere along the pathways."

"Probiotics in traditional Foods Do you know which food(s) naturally include probiotics? Thanks to renewed interest in probiotics in the 20th century, more people know that dairy foods, such as yogurt, are natural food sources of probiotics. Lactic acid bacteria ferment milk to create yogurt. Many probiotics fall into the category of lactic acid bacteria. The acid produced by these bacteria curdles the milk and preserves it from putrefaction and spoilage. Probiotic species commonly found in yogurt include Lactobacillus bulgaricus, Lactobacillus acidophilus and Streptococcus thermophilus."

"New technology is putting probiotics in less traditional foods such as chocolate, cereal and other novel foods. When choosing a supplement, consider the potency, best species for your age and certain health conditions, production techniques, survivability and reliability. Foods, which offer an easy way to consume probiotics, are generally more accepted by the public than are supplements. Thanks to new innovations you can simply substitute a probiotic containing food for your regular food."

"For more than two thousand years, practitioners of traditional Chinese medicine have used ginseng root to treat various ailments. It has largely been valued as a way to boost the immune system and as an adaptogen, which means it helps increase the body's resistance to stress. Today it is still used for this purpose, but it also is proving helpful in supporting metabolic health and healthy blood sugar levels. At the University of Toronto, a group of researchers found that Asian ginseng, when compared with a placebo, improved glucose and insulin control in people with type 2 diabetes."
