"Wouldn't it be great if there were some powerful natural treatments for seasonal allergies? Well, there is. And it's a bioflavonoid called quercetin. Combined with a few other things, it just might be your most powerful natural weapon against the annoying symptoms of seasonal allergies. Quercetin to the Rescue I've talked about the reasons quercetin is effective for asthma (see page 101)—it's effective against seasonal allergies for similar reasons. For one thing, it's a powerful anti-inflammatory."

"It's been an approved treatment for congestive heart failure in Japan since 1974, and Houston considers it one of the best natural treatments for high blood pressure. In addition to being a superb source of high-quality, absorbable protein, hydrolyzed whey protein is a natural ACE inhibitor. ACE inhibitors, short for angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors, help reduce blood pressure by interfering with an enzyme that causes muscles surrounding the arteries to constrict, thus raising blood pressure. "Hydrolyzed whey protein lowers blood pressure," says Houston."

"Cure" is a word I don't like to use when talking about natural treatments. Natural medicine—or nutritional medicine—works by treating the whole body as a system. It's not a philosophy based on taking a pill to suppress a symptom; it's about healing the condition that caused the symptom in the first place. And this generally involves an entire prescription for healing that can be as simple as a taking a few vitamins, but more typically, combines lifestyle, nutritional, physical, psychological, and even spiritual components, not your conventional "cure."

"If this is the case, dry hair is best dealt with by a homeopathic practitioner, who will prescribe treatments in an effort to balance the whole system. If dry hair arises at, or beyond, midlife in combination with unexplained weight gain, tiredness, and dry, cracked skin, have your thyroid gland function tested. Calc carb: If hair appears dry and of poor quality, and if there is a general sense of sweatiness on the head and scalp, Calc carb can be helpful."

"These agents are associated with higher cure rates and quicker response times than some of the older topical treatments. Sometimes a once-weekly internal antifungal medicine called Diflucan (fluconazole) is used, especially in severe cases. TRADITIONAL CHINESE MEDICINE Herbs: The herbs below are all available from Chinese herbalists."

"Other treatments for diaper rash are similar to those for dermatitis (see p. 56), such as the use of demulcent herbs to protect and soothe inflamed skin. DRY HAIR DIAGNOSIS Dry hair can mean many different things. Hair can be fine and limp but dry, or coarse and curly but dry. It can even be oily at the roots and dry at the ends. Dry, brittle hair is often a sign that your diet is deficient in essential fatty acids. These polyunsaturated fats are vital for locking moisture into skin and hair cells to keep them supple."

"Sometimes a number of treatments are required to obtain the best result. Willow: The bark of this tree is popular for its pain-relieving qualities, and the same constituent responsible for the pain relief also dissolves skin growths. Boil 25-30 g of dried willow bark in strips or chunks in 4 cups of water for 10 minutes, making sure that the water does not evaporate and leave the pan dry. Once it has cooled, apply it to the corn, holding the willow in place with a cloth or gauze for 10 minutes several times a day."

"Two controlled trials of acupuncture compared to "fake" acupuncture found either significantly more pain reduction from real acupuncture25 or no difference between the two treatments.26 Two trials comparing acupuncture to traditional physical therapy (relaxation techniques, self-massage, cold therapy, transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation [TENS], stretching, and/or preventive education) in tension-type headache patients found similar improvements from either treatment.27'28 Three controlled acupuncture trials treated patients with various types of headaches, including tension headache."

"Both of these treatments were given three times per week for three weeks and both produced similar reductions in pain and tenderness. Preliminary studies have suggested that daily use of TENS (transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation) for one to two weeks reduces or eliminates pain in patients with tendinitis.32' 33 Controlled studies are needed to confirm these findings. TENSION HEADACHE A tension-type headache is common and typically experienced as a dull, non-throbbing pain in the back of the neck or in a "headband" distribution."

"I write about in this book. "One-third of the people I treat with natural medicine [like diet and supplements] will get 100 percent better—effectively cured," he told me. "One-third will improve considerably—they may be able to go off meds, or reduce meds substantially, or their symptoms will lessen, or they'll have measurably less pain and suffering. And one-third, unfortunately, won't be helped very much at all." I agree with this, but I'd go one step further."

"When the group receiving no treatment was switched to acupuncture treatments, they experienced similar improvements. In a controlled trial, a combination of manual physical therapy (by a qualified physical thetapist) and supervised exercise significantly improved walking distance and pain in a group of people with osteoarthritis of the knee.113 The therapeutic regimen consisted of manual therapy to the knee, low back, hip, and ankle as necessary, as well as a standardized knee-exercise program performed at home and in the clinic."

"In a controlled trial, patients with tendinitis of the shoulder received 24 treatments over six weeks of either ultrasound or a sham treatment.29 Ultrasound resulted in considerable improvement in pain level and overall quality of life, but many of the patients had their original symptoms return after nine months. The use of ultrasound for tennis elbow has not been validated, according to a systematic review of controlled studies."

"If that risk is reasonably likely in the mind of the physician or in the mind of risk managers working for a medical practice, clinic, or hospital, the physician may well either send the patient away to another, recommend a less extensive set of treatments, or exclude certain treatments altogether to reduce the risk. When Medicare finally performs its audit and assigns liability, the physician must either pay the amount demanded plus interest, pay but fight, or not pay and fight."

"With non-toxic treatments, however, these vicious dynamics are avoided. Non-toxic approaches do not harm the body and therefore do allow for continual use. When a cancer treatment is non-toxic and can be administered continually every day, resistant cells are not selected and allowed to proliferate. In fact, a non-toxic approach can be done every single day for months or years. This allows the treatment approach to work in the body "24/7" and never gives the cancer cells a chance to grow back in ever more virulent forms."

"The good news is that, even if you have been diagnosed with cancer that has metastasized, there are alternatives to conventional treatments. And they often have better track records, in general, than what mainstream medicine is offering. I know many people who were told by their conventional doctors that their late-stage or metastasized cancer was incurable, only to completely recover later by using a non-toxic, alternative approach!"

"Tens of thousands of people have used alternative, non-toxic treatments to overcome their cancer and then gone on to live normal, healthy lives! The second thing you should know is that you are far from alone. Right now, one in every two to three Americans will develop life-threatening cancer at some point in their lives! This estimate comes primarily from the official American Cancer Society figures of 1996, which predicted that 40 percent of all Americans will develop life-threatening cancer."

"Gerson warns against the use of radiation treatments, since they are so destructive to other parts of the body. "The more the whole body is detoxified, replenished and activated, the more the cancer is doomed." He mentions that in countries like Southern Italy, Greece, Yugoslavia, and so forth, where a great deal of garlic is used, there is little cancer. He indicates that he saw two cancers of the breast disappear with the use of large amounts of fenugreek seed tea in combination with a saltless vegetarian diet."

"Medicine offers these treatments as the final hope to the cancer victim. But such hopes are dashed as the flood of deaths from cancer continues to rise each year. Soon, certainly within this century, there will not be enough hospitals or hospital beds to receive these patients. There will not be enough doctors, surgeons, pathologists, radiologists, or nurses to care for them. The hordes of cancer victims yet to come will flood the gates of established medicine. It takes years for cancer to develop."

"Staph: Staphylococcus aureus, a bacteria that can become resistant to antibiotic treatments. strain A subset of a bacterial species differing from other bacteria of the same species by some minor, but identifiable, difference. A strain is a population of organisms that descends from a single organism or pure culture isolate. Strains within a species may differ slightly from one another in many ways. An example is B. lactis BB12. Streptococci A group of spherical, gram-positive bacteria."

"Radiation Therapy Perhaps the most exciting way probiotics can help fight cancer is through its ability to promote health in people undergoing chemotherapy or radiation treatments. In 2006, Russian researchers reported the ability of a probiotic called Acilact to improve the health of mice when exposed to ionizing radiation and chemotherapy. The probiotics reduced the ability of bad microbes from invading the intestinal tract. The mice also had improvements in the health of their blood and bone marrow (blood cells are greatly affected by radiation)."

"First, perhaps, it should be stated that orthodox treatments include surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy. The major success lies primarily with surgery. Surgery usually fails in cases where the tumor has spread to vital points making successful surgery impossible. At this point, the physician has to make a decision, either to give radiation or chemotherapy, or both, or neither. Certainly, this is an extremely difficult position for any doctor to be in. The main reason is that both radiation and chemotherapy are very destructive to the body and probably not very successful."

"Jeffrey Boscamp, our resident head-lice expert, we're conducting a large-scale research project to test the product—a healthy alternative to traditional treatments containing toxic pesticides such as lindane and malathion—in schools. In the beginning stages of the project, we'll be surveying parents at several New York City schools, as well as approximately 2,700 school nurses in New York and New Jersey, about their experiences treating and diagnosing head lice."

"In some cases, our first-line treatments don't work in 50, 60 percent of the kids. So then we're forced to use stronger and stronger antibiotics. The medicines themselves have a lot of side effects and adverse effects, which create other problems in the kids, sometimes worse than the infection they came in with." And kids are just coming into excessive contact with antibiotics at the doctor's office. They are also being exposed whenever they eat nonorganic meat or drink nonorganic milk. That's why getting antibiotics out of cattle feed should become a major public-heath priority. "

"According to Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR), "Children with kidney problems who were given aluminum in their medical treatments have developed bone diseases." Aluminum is also suspected of being toxic to the neurological, respiratory, reproductive, and cardiovascular systems, and has been associated with Alzheimer's disease and seizures. The use of aluminum adjuvant in many vaccines is of increasing concern to many researchers like Dr."

"Few new, effective treatments have been devised for the most common cancers." And the Most Shocking Fact of All The April 15, 1998 Journal of the American Medical Association reported that there are more than 2,000,000 drug "reactions" annually in the United States, and that more than 100,000 of those reactions are fatal. This makes prescription drugs the fourth leading cause of death in America. But the reality is actually far worse. • These numbers only count drugs that are prescribed correctly and at the right dose."

"To this day, I don't know if it was the acupuncture itself or the herbs, or just the emotional support of my doctor, but fifteen months after I started my acupuncture treatments, I gave birth to a beautiful baby boy. Carolyn M., Portland, OR GREENING YOUR HOME A green environment starts at home. For best results, I always recommend getting back to the basics.

"Medical treatments are based entirely on eliminating the symptoms (or manifestation) of the cancer in your body. They do nothing to eliminate the causes of cancer—to remove those things that stimulate it's growth in the body. Think about this for a moment. Does surgery or radiation treatment or chemotherapy do one single thing for any of the causes that we have discussed in the previous sections? And the answer, of course, is zero, zilch, nada, nothing. All they do is attempt to remove the symptom (the physical manifestation of the cancel) that results from these causes."

"At the moment the evidence must rest on such pointers as the case records of the growing numbers of people with advanced cancer whose growths improve, or on the success of clinics that offer such treatments, unless they are legislated out of existence by governments who listen to the outraged authoratitive voices of orthodox practitioners and the pressures of the industrialists who manufacture the chemicals and apparatus used to treat cancer. That is, those who have a vested interest and stand to lose financially by a change of treatment."

"Indeed, mind-body treatments have shown some effectiveness in treating psychological problems. So have mind-body therapies been effective in the relief of pain. Once again, we might (incorrectly) dismiss or minimize these claims, given the subjective nature of pain. Yet, according to a major review, there is "considerable evidence of efficacy'in the treatment of disparate maladies such as cardiac rehabilitation, symptoms from cancer and the treatment of cancer, and postsurgical outcomes; and "moderate evidence of efficacy" for the treatment of hypertension and arthritis."
