"In the following section on injection technique, I will describe methods of treating acute and chronic musculoskeletal injuries. Injection of small amounts of solution at close intervals as a series of dots is called stippling. Extensive areas of muscle attachment or tendon substance cannot be adequately treated with a single large amount of dextrose lidocaine. Stippling will permit identification of the areas of maximum sensitivity and inflammation. A. Gale Borden, M.D."

"Those in favor of it feel it is an effective tool in treating pain and injury, while those opposed feel that exercise alone is not effective as a treatment, though it has rehabilitative value when used in conjunction with other treatments. Practitioners using exercise as a treatment believe it works by increasing strength, flexibility, and blood circulation. Most proponents using exercise as treatment insist that exercises must be done daily in order to be effective at stopping pain. However, if the exercises are discontinued, the pain frequently returns."

"While there is psychogenic pain that is entirely emotionally based, and that can only be treated by treating the emotional cause, certain strange and uncommon neck and back injuries, especially postsurgical pain, often defy diagnosis by even the most experienced physicians. One type of elusive pain can be caused by long-standing (chronic) muscle tension. Another form of elusive pain comes from a sudden rise in muscle tension. Both of these are often triggered by increased life pressures which add an overload of emotional stress to the nervous system."

"CORTICOSTEROIDS There are many kinds of corticosteriods (hormone derivatives used in treating pain), but the kind most people are thinking of when they talk about corticosteroids is hydrocortisone. There is a lot of confusion about cortisone. First, there are two ways to take it."

"Specifically treating extra body fat, as many diets do, is treating only the symptom. Excess body fat is a clear indication that optimal health has not been achieved, and to treat it without creating a healthier lifestyle on a holistic level is merely spot-treating. Food cravings, usually for sugary or starchy foods, are often a telltale sign that the diet lacks nutrients or is tired. Cravings and chronic hunger, if not addressed, will lead to weight gain and fatigue in the short term and, in the long term, any number of health problems."

"This requires treating the underlying cause(s). One of the obvious steps is to eliminate or cut down on simple sugars, alcohol, and so on, which feed yeast. Also, direct therapy that destroys Candida works to assist the body in getting Candida levels down to a controllable level. Examples include oregano oil and garlic. However, many chronic cases require a change in the biological terrain. By this, we mean the state and the health of the digestive tract, the organs of detoxification and elimination, the immune system, and hormone balance."

"Symptom-treating programs have risen in popularity over the past several years because of the speed at which results can be seen, and treating symptoms has become the excepted approach for many. While it's true that short-term results can be achieved by dealing merely with the symptoms, long-term sustainable satisfaction is rarely if ever achieved. The Thrive Diet will likely not produce noticeable result as quickly as some symptom-treating methods. However, the Thrive Diet is a platform for long-term The Thrive Diet treats the success.

"The good news is that I have developed a five-step program for treating depression naturally that seems to work in about 90 percent of patients. It is detailed in my book, Depression-Free for Life. Metabolic Syndrome (Syndrome X) Syndrome X was first coined as a term by Gerald Reaven, MD, at Stanford University to describe a group of symptoms that arise from an overall metabolic disorder. These symptoms may include Type-2 diabetes, obesity with an inability to lose weight, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, high triglycerides, low HDL cholesterol, and coronary heart disease."

"I am not talking about managing Type-2 diabetes, which is the old paradigm, exemplified by a belief system stated in the New York Times and backed by most doctors treating diabetes: "Diabetes has no cure. It is progressive and fatal." We have the knowledge, clinical know-how, and experience to completely reverse Type-2 diabetes. The four-minute mile of diabetes has been broken. All that is needed is to let go of our belief that diabetes cannot be reversed. Then we are free to cultivate the understanding of what is possible."

"Whenever my colleagues and I discuss the grave importance of aggressively treating the disease with diabetes patients or with the general public, the attitude that "well, this will happen to someone else, not me" is all too common. The stark truth, however, is that diabetes is a relentlessly progressive disease, and given enough time, complications are a virtual certainty among patients with poorly controlled diabetes unless aggressive steps are taken to reduce the risk."

"Like Rosemary, however, you must work with your doctor when adding and/or eliminating any type of medications for depression, diabetes, or any other conditions you are treating. In a placebo-controlled, double-blind study conducted at the Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, researchers studied sixty people with diabetes who also had major depressive disorder. At the end of the eight-week study, those who had taken fluoxetine (Prozac) had significant improvement in both depression and blood sugar levels when compared with controls."

"Please see the Suggested Reading List for resources that explore these other strategies for treating depression. Drug Treatment for Diabetes Patients with Depression As a treatment option, antidepressants or other drugs used to treat depression can be helpful, preferably as a short-term (less than six months) measure (see "Drugs Used to Treat Major or Clinical Depression," page 184). Most antidepressants work by helping make certain natural chemicals called neurotransmitters (serotonin, norepinephrine) more accessible to the brain."

"Limiting glycation is critical when it comes to preventing, reversing, or treating diabetic complications. The process of glycation and the resulting production of cell-damaging substances called advanced glycation end products (AGEs) and advanced lipoxidation end products (ALEs), both of which are known collectively as glycotoxins, are a major focus of this book, and they are terms that will soon become very familiar to you."

"Since adequate blood levels and bioavailability of CoQIO are essential to treating very sick people, we offer some additional information designed to make your use of this remarkable supplement the most beneficial for you. The differences in CoQIO forms have created confusion not just among consumers and patients but among physicians as well. CoQIO Blood-Level Research After you swallow a pill, CoQIO travels the same pathway of intestinal absorption as other fats we consume."

"If your child's fever falls within the normal range, many physicians do not recommend treating it with Tylenol. "In general, I do not advise parents to medicate children with anything, including Tylenol, around time of vaccinations," Dr. Rosen said. "The further liver stress is a consideration. Over six months old, ibuprofen is OK to use, sparingly. As for fever in general, I try to help parents understand that fever is a natural way for the body to fight infection. I do not advocate the routine use of acetaminophen or ibuprofen." High-pitched crying."

"Uncovering the Vitamin D Cure has revolutionized the way I approach treating patients. Most of my patients came to me with muscle and joint pain, back pain, sleep disturbances, severe fatigue, muscle cramps, and headaches. And many were also obese and had high blood pressure, diabetes, osteoarthritis, osteoporosis, autoimmune diseases, and/or dental problems. Most people, including physicians, would routinely attribute these symptoms and diseases to aging or genetics. They would say that time and genes were just running their course."

"Minimizing the exposures that cause disease is much more effective, and less painful, than treating the disease after the fact. Dr. Phil Landrigan offered a parallel to the cost of cleaning up environmental disasters. "It makes a lot more sense to go upstream and to stop the pollution at its source. It's always cheaper to prevent the pollution in the first place than to clean it up afterward. Look at the millions—the billions—of dollars that this country is spending on cleaning up Superfund sites and toxic waste sites."

"Some kids might be hyperactive, some inattentive, some impulsive, others a combination of all three. treating ADHD and other behavioral problems depends very much on the individual. "You get the best results by looking at each child and trying to figure out what they need—what are their metabolic needs, their nutritional needs, and so on. Treatment isn't one-size-fits-all—there's no one answer for every child." Most important, since many conventional pediatricians might be unwilling to explore alternatives to medication—which tend to be much more time-consuming and involved—Dr."

"As a group, we were treating some of the most intractable conditions that existed. They were hard to treat mostly just because they were so complex. For example, many serious diseases occur merely because the immune system becomes weak, and gives illness an opportunity to flourish. The 4-A disorders, though, have a much more complex relationship with immunity. Allergies .and asthma, in particular, are generally caused by overactivity of the immune system, rather than underactivity. To overcome them, the immune system must be made to function at just the right level."

"Anju had by this time vaulted far past conventional medical wisdom, and was working with autistic and other chronically ill children at the Pfeiffer Institute in Chicago, which specializes in treating biochemical imbalances and heavy metal toxification. Anju, I learned, had been on an arduous intellectual journey. Born in India, she'd grown up since the age of two in the prairie town of Fort Wayne, Indiana, and had graduated from the excellent Indiana University School of Medicine. She described herself to me as "a normal Hoosier, nothing special," but her work at Pfeiffer was cutting-edge."

"Probiotics have been shown to reverse this, reducing the permeability of the intestines, preventing or treating food allergies. 2. Research has proven that probiotics increase IgA in the intestines. IgA reduces the ability of microbes to adhere to the intestinal lining. This defense is frequently defective in children with food allergies. 3. Changes in number and type of intestinal microbes are common in allergic individuals. Probiotics have the ability to promote a healthy, normal intestinal microflora, thus reducing the development of allergies."

"Unfortunately, we do not yet know which probiotic is best at treating diarrhea. Further studies are needed. The Role of Yogurt What about using yogurt as a treatment for acute diarrhea in children? The literature is split: some studies suggest yogurt is helpful and some do not. However, there tends to be a trend in the research that yogurt can shorten the dura- Yogurt may offer some benefit in acute tion of diarrhea in children. diarrhea in children.

"As Lactobacilli species love to live in the small intestine, the location of the diarrhea infection, it is likely that these species would be most effective in treating diarrhea. Is there one species of Lactobacilli that is better at preventing diarrhea than others? L. rhamnosus strain GG (also called L. casei) was compared with L. rhamnosus Lactophilus. Lactobacillus rhamnosus GG was more effective in reducing the quantity of watery stools after the first day of treatment, while L. rhamnosus Lactophilus was not."

"The Children's Diabetes Foundation puts the cost of treating diabetes and its complications at more than $100 billion per year. And the crisis keeps getting worse. Type 1 diabetes, a genetic disease caused by a malfunctioning pancreas, used to be referred to as "juvenile diabetes." As recently as twenty years ago, only adults had the far more common type 2 diabetes, which is much more closely linked to excess weight and improper nutrition. A child with type 2 diabetes was almost unheard of. But type 2 diabetes has increased by 33 percent in the last fifteen years."

"If you come to the conclusion that your physician is not treating your situation with sufficient skill, openness, or gravity, you should seek out the advice of anyone close to you who has dealt with similar issues before. Many of my referrals come from word-of-mouth recommendations, from people who have either come to see me or heard about my practice through the grapevine. This grassroots approach to finding a physician has many benefits."

"It also creates dysfunction by not properly protecting the gastrointestinal lining that provides a safe barrier between the environment and your internal organs. treating the underlying dysbiosis is crucial for eliminating excessive gas. Poor Digestion Poor digestion may be linked to poor food choices or a lack of digestive enzymes required for absorbing and breaking down food. If you eat too much of a particular food, you may not have enough enzymes to digest all of it. Thus it may be excreted in the large intestine partially undigested. This causes gas and fermentation."

"He began experimenting with a number of non-toxic substances purported to be successful in treating cancer. In all but one instance, the substances only increased the photons from tumor cells, making it even more deadly to the body. The single success story was mistletoe, which seemed to help the body to 'resocialize' the photon emission of tumor cells back to normal. In one of numerous cases, Popp came across a woman in her thirties with breast and vaginal cancer."

"One of her own early studies had shown that group therapy was as good as Prozac for treating depression in AIDS patients.1 She'd also read of the work of David Spiegel at Stanford Medical School, showing that group therapy dramatically increased life expectancy for women with breast cancer.2 In her sensible, pragmatic heart, Elisabeth suspected the effect was a combination of hope and wishful thinking, and perhaps a bit of confidence engendered by the support of the group. They may have been psychologically better, but their T-cell counts certainly weren't improving."

"They had one other common element: success in treating hopeless cases. Collectively, the healers had an average of 17 years of experience in healing and reported an average of 117 distant healings apiece. Targ and Sicher then divided their group of twenty patients in half. The plan was that both groups would receive the usual orthodox treatment, but only one of the two groups would also receive distant healing. Neither doctors nor patients were going to know who was being healed and who wasn't."
