Notes on Use of this information: The topics are not in alphabetical order but are grouped somewhat by types of conditions. To find information or referenced advise on your topic of interest, use the document search available to you online to search for key words. (for example: hold down command key (command F) and type in the condition key word to be searched for). Much of the information comes from medical study abstracts found in NIH PubMed or Books or Medical Newsletters, etc. and references are provided for some of this. The 2 most commonly referenced sources (52 & 40) are comprehensive reliable documents and would be good to have for reference or details of information referencing them. For information on herbal supplements and such, online reviews of the source or supplement were also considered. While any known adverse effects were noted, most herbs have been in use a long time and havenít been found to have many significant adverse effects. While any information or product has been verified to have helped some, individuals can have individual susceptibilities (33,108,113) such as (www.myflcv.com/suscept.html) or immune reactivities or allergies (33,52) or etc., so professional advice or your doctor should be consulted before discontinuing any prescription or treatment or starting new treatments for significant conditions.

 

Degenerative Conditions: Many degenerative conditions incidence is increasing in the U.S. Due to the relatively poor general health/medical care system in the U. S (World Health Organization) and the poor diet and lifestyle of many people (21,40,52). Dr. Bruce West (40) and others (25,26,41,52,79,99) have found that poor diet/lifestyle choices or prescription drug effects are a major factor in most chronic conditions. He advises that for any chronic condition, diet/lifestyle changes should be considered before drugs or surgery (25,26,40,41,46,51,52,71,72,78-80,82,99), which have known risks. Some of the earliest known medical advice such as �first do no harm and let food be your medicine still has some validity. Chronic Inflammation, oxidative stress, and mitochondrial dysfunction are significant factors in most chronic disease (52,40,33) and many studies have found that an imbalanced gut microbiome contributes to autoimmune disorders, metabolic syndrome, diabetes, chronic fatigue, nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, obesity, and more (51b, p23). 

 Mercury, toxic metals and other toxics can cause all of these factors (33,52,16-18,105,126), and also damage enzymes needed to digest and utilize nutrients and activate necessary hormones (33,40,52). Root Canal Teeth or jawbone cavitations accumulate highly toxic bacterial toxins and also have been shown to cause the significant factors seen in chronic conditions (124). EMF or Wi-fi exposure have been found to increase mercury exposure in people with amalgam fillings, thus increasing mercury toxic effects (117). There is strong evidence and considerable agreement among experts that people have a lot of control of their lifespan and state of health (52 26,40) and that exercise, diet, avoiding toxic exposure and buildups, avoiding EMF/wifi/blue light effects (33,52,99,117), maintaining normal levels of hormones, and vitamins and minerals through supplementation make significant differences in health and longevity (52,42,40,41,21,33,79,99,etc.). An anti-inflammatory diet is associated with reduced mortality and reduced cancer mortality (longer life,103a,52,40,99) (Mediterranean low glycemic index diet and avoid high temp cooking). Most chronic conditions can be avoided through prevention measures that are known (52,40,41,42,79,99,103,26). 

 [It is estimated that an average of 35% of human cancers (certain types up to 70%) can be attributed to diet (1). According to the WHO report 2002, there were at least 2.7 million deaths globally per year, which are primarily attributable to low fruit and vegetable intake (2). The National Cancer Institute identified about 35 plant-based foods that possess anti-cancer benefits, including garlic, soybeans, ginger, onion, turmeric, tomatoes, and cruciferous vegetables (broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, and Brussels sprouts). Furthermore, the chemopreventive efficacy of these diet constituents has been demonstrated in vitro and in vivo. The substantial anticarcinogenic and antimutagenic properties of these tested dietary agents can be attributed to the non-nutritive components of these foods, termed phytochemicals. There could be more than 100 different phytochemicals in just a single serving of vegetables (2), and they can be extracted for therapeutic purposes. Since phytochemicals have not been shown to have any known toxicities, they can be considered as an alternative to the conventional chemotherapy that may be harmful. A number of phytochemicals have been found to have notable efficacy in preclinical models of carcinogenesis, such as those of colorectum, breast, lung, and hematological origin. These include EGCG epigallocatechin gallate from tea, the flavonoids quercetin and genistein from onions and soya, curcumin in curry spice and resveratrol from red grapes (25). Chemopreventive phytochemicals can block the initiation or reverse the promotion of carcinogenesis and impede the progression of precancerous cells into malignant ones. These phytochemicals have been found to have benefits in other types of chronic conditions as well, such as cardiovascular, immune, etc. Good food sources of Quercetin include capers, berries, onions, salad greens, quinoa, buckwheat, apple skin, (108b). {taken from (25)- references here internal- click on reference number-similar information also found in (26, 40, 52,108b)}

 

 

There are significant Risks in Doctor Prescribed treatments or prescriptions and Hospital Use

Although a record $3.2 trillion was spent on medical care in the U.S. in 2017, many countries rank higher than the U.S. in effectiveness and life expectancy actually declined in the U.S., and medical system mistakes and poor advice on health and treatment from doctors and the health care system were a factor in this. More effective and less expensive treatment options are often overlooked by doctors and the medical and insurance systems (40,42,51,52,79,99,103,26, etc.) A 1998 study found More than 100,000 people a year died in American hospitals from adverse reactions to medication, making drug reactions and interactions one of the leading causes of death in this country, researchers reported...." (Journal of the American Medical Association study, as quoted in The New York Times (82,83)). An article published in the British Medical Journal described medical error as the third leading cause of death(84b). A 2015 government study by the Centers for Disease Control estimated 400,000 people die each year from preventable adverse events, making it the third leading cause of death in the United States (86) Adverse drug events (ADEs) comprise the largest single category of adverse events experienced by hospitalized patients, accounting for about 19 percent of all injuries. The occurrence of ADEs is associated with increased morbidity and mortality, prolonged hospitalizations, and higher costs of care [84). A 2007 report from the Institute of Medicine estimated that between 380,000 and 450,000 preventable ADEs occurred annually in US hospitals at that time. Assuming 400,000 preventable ADEs each year at an incremental hospital cost of $5857 each, the estimated cost of ADEs in 2006 was 3.5 billion US dollars(85a) Their data analysis estimated greater than 400,000 deaths a year from medical error, none of which captured deaths outside inpatient care(85a). It is estimated in 2012 that preventable medication errors impact more than 7 million patients and cost almost $21 billion annually across all care settings(85ab). Each year in the U.S., serious preventable medication errors occur in 3.8 million inpatient admissions and 3.3 million outpatient visits(87).The Institute of Medicine, in its report To Err Is Human, estimated 7,000 deaths in the U.S. each year are due to preventable medication errors & studies found that Inpatient preventable medication errors cost approximately $16.4 billion annually, while Outpatient preventable medication errors cost approximately $4.2 billion annually.(88) 

It is no longer a secret that adverse drug reactions can be dangerous or even fatal, or that doctors often prescribe two relatively safe drugs -- which may cause a life-threatening interaction if taken together (40,51,52,30,82,99). 

 15 million people take proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) to treat heartburn and acid reflux, but in a study of thousands of patients, 22% taking acid-suppressing drugs had recurrent infections with C. difficile, a potentially deadly type of bacteria (99) and large numbers had other significant increased risks. A review of studies indicates that there is a direct association between the onset of dementia and depression on one side and the long-term use of PPIs on the other(116b,108).

The use of AntiCholinergic medication (Rx drugs like Demerol, Paxil, Vesicar, and non-prescription drugs like Benadryl, Dimetapp, Unisom, Tylenol PM, Dramamine) was associated with increased brain atrophy and dysfunction and clinical decline(116a,108). These are widely used. 

 Millions take antihistamines but they are addictive, cause rebound problems for sinuses, and memory loss (40). Similar to steroid nose sprays (40). Most over-the counter cold or flu medications have less benefit than natural treatments that help (40). 

 The over-use of anti-biotics has resulted in increasing and dangerous drug resistant bacterial conditions, with over 700,000 per year dying of drug-resistant infections or drug caused infections (99,101d). Antibiotics are useless against colds, flu, and most upper respiratory infections or sinusitis (40,52) yet weaken the immune system and leave you prone to diarrhea, yeast infections, fungal infections, skin problems, etc. (40)- there are more effective treatments. 

Overuse of prescription antibiotics and overuse in factor animal farms and cleaning products has resulting in antibiotic resistance being one of the largest health problems facing the world (40,51,52,100,101,104,79b), resulting according to the U.S. CDC in millions affected by antibiotic resistant infections (101) or chronic health problems such as MRSA, fluoroquinolone induced problems, digestive problems, and weakened immune systems. Millions have toxic metal exposures such as mercury, lead, cadmium, etc. which have been found to commonly cause chronic adverse health effects (33,16-18,52,105) and to promote antibiotic resistant bacteria (104,33)- with mercury being the most problematic and resulting in antibiotic resistant bacteria more resistant to treatment/ remediation(104c). A BMJ study in 2016 (40), found that of millions of anti-biotic prescriptions issued, only 13% were clearly appropriate, and well over 50% were inappropriate, Agricultural land and vegetables in sewage-irrigated areas were found to be heavy metal- and metalloid-contaminated. The regression coefficient for the incident rate of children's blood lead level ≥ 5 g/dL in each census block was positive for the soil lead concentration around the house, so higher soil lead levels were associated with higher child blood levels. There are also other common sources of lead exposure such as some food, plumbing solder, some plastic blinds, etc. Contamination levels of heavy metals and metalloids vary among the cities, with industrial areas being most polluted.

MRSA is a growing problem affecting hospital patients and health care system patients and athletes, etc. The US Food and Drug Administration warned on 12-20-18 that the benefits of fluoroquinolone antibiotics do not outweigh the risks -- which include aortic aneurysm for certain patients, according to the latest research. Patients most at risk for an aortic aneurysm after taking these antibiotics are the elderly, those with high blood pressure, people who have a history of blockages of the aorta or other blood vessels, and those who have genetic conditions like Marfan syndrome or Ehlers-Danlos syndrome. In July, the agency sent a notice that these drugs may significantly decrease blood sugar and negatively impact mental health. In 2016, the FDA said that the drugs may have a disabling side effect on muscles, nerves, joints and the central nervous system and should be restricted for use in some simpler infections.� Fluoroquinolone antibiotics now have a CDC black-box warning due to causing increased risk of tendon rupture, aortic aneurysms, cardiac dysrhythmias, autoimmune problems, and other degenerative conditions (99,52).� Fluoride in these drugs is toxic and damages the mitochondria of cells (99). 

There has been a significant increase in infertility in the U.S. and world in recent years (108). According to the WHO, approx. 25% of those trying to become pregnant in developing countries for 5 years were unable to do so (120). Male sperm concentrations and total sperm count declined more than 50% from 1970 to 2010, and another study fround a substantial drop in male testosterone level from the 1980s to the early 2000s-over 10% (120). There are documented to be many drugs and environmental toxins people are commonly exposed to that adversely affect fertility (108,33)- including NSAIDs, POPs, mercury (33, http://www.myflcv.com/fetaln.html),

toxic metals (108,52,33,126), EMF/Wi-fi (108,117,122), etc.� 

[A study showed taking 1200 mg of Ibuprofen a day lowered testicular output significantly(121a). Another study found Ibuprofen damaged testicular tissue(121b). Another study found that ibuprofen taken in the first trimester by pregnant women can damage the testicles of the male fetus(121c). EMF/Wi-fi was found to lower sperm counts and lower sperm mobility (122,108), as well as having other adverse health effects; Tylenol(acetaminophen) damages the liver and severly depletes the body of essential glutathione levels(108b)]. 

 Over $100 billion per year is spent on mostly inappropriate and harmful ADHD drugs (40). Some side effects of the common drugs used include: decreased appetite, weight loss, insomnia, depression, nausea, indigestion, addominal pain, anxiety, dizziness, irritability, increased blood pressure, tachycardia, mood swings. Better results with proper low glycemic index diet with plenty of protein and good fats, avoid toxic exposures and nutritional deficiencies, ADHD Protocol supplements [Calcium Lactate (6), Min-Tran (6), Cataplex G (6), if depression or anxiety, add Cataplex B (6)] 

 Many doctors consider that the FDA is overly influenced by Pharmaceuticals, and many of their negative statements and positions on supplements, adequate levels of vitamins and minerals, and treatments have been debunked by studies and authorities (52,40,33, 99, etc.) Regular use of household disinfectants was found to result in higher childrenís obesity and other adverse health effects(98b). 

For example, higher levels of vit C, vit E, folate, etc. than recommended by the FDA have beneficial effects for health, longevity, and cancer prevention (52, etc.) A large well known study showed long term supplementation of folic acid reduced colon cancer risk by 75%, while supplementation with vit C provided significant benefits in cardiovascular health and reduced levels of bladder cancer compared to those who didnít supplement, and vit E/vit K2 for risk of carotid atherosclerosis (52), etc. 

 Overuse of prescription antibiotics and overuse in factory animal farms and cleaning products has resulting in antibiotic resistance being one of the largest health problems facing the world (40,51,52,100,101), resulting according to the U.S. CDC, in millions affected by antibiotic resistant infections (101) or chronic health problems such as MRSA, fluoroquinolone induced problems, digestive problems, and weakened immune systems. MRSA is a growing problem affecting hospital patients and health care system patients and athletes, etc. Fluoroquinolone antibiotics now have a CDC black-box warning due to causing increased risk of tendon rupture, aortic aneurysms, cardiac dysrhythmias, autoimmune problems, and other degenerative conditions (99,52). Fluoride in these drugs is toxic and damages the mitochondria of cells (99). Similar is true for anti-fungals where misuse and overuse on farms has resulted in development of fungal superbugs such as Candida auris, which are commonly found in wounds, in the ear, and bloodstream (40). Such fungal infections in hospitals or nursing homes for surgery or catheter use situations have a high fatality rate (40).

Large amounts of statin drugs are taken in spite of there being little evidence that they improve heart disease outcomes (99). In fact statins have been shown to reduce the vital CoQ10 and reduce cellular energy and inhibit the synthesis of vit K2, which is important in preventing calcification of arteries, etc. and blood clotting- thus can be very dangerous (99). Statins also have been found to increase the risk of diabetes, especially in women (99).

Drug Side Effects  [acetaminophen causes over 10,000 deaths per year (5)- NAC treats (52)), NSAIDs taken for joint pain cause further damage to the joint, making arthritis worse, and blocking your bodiesí natural ability to repair cartilage(41,52,99), The group of traditional NSAIDs was associated with a 47% increased risk of acute myocardial infarction, a 26% increased risk of stroke, and a 138% increased risk for GI haemorrhage(5); NSAIDS can cause internal bleeding, stomach ulcers, diarrhea, and liver damage (5, 52).]; Statin toxicity (thousands affected- COQ10 treats, 52); A large clinical trial found that the widely used drug for Gout- febuxostat, increases the risk of death from cardiovascular disease, but is no more effective than safer options- the FDA issued a black box warning fro the drug; GLP-1 receptor agonist diabetes drugs commonly cause significant digestive problems (108b)- berberine is an effective natural alternative.

*******************************************************

Herbs and Essential Oil Use(108f):

Herbs contain a large number of naturally occurring substances that work to alter the body�s chemistry in order to return to its natural state of health. Unlike purified drugs, however, plants and other organic material contain a wide variety of substances and hence, less of any one particular active chemical. This attribute makes herbs far less potentially toxic to the body than most pharmaceutical products. Another benefit of natural herbs is that they tend to contain combinations of substances that work together to restore balance to the body with a minimum number of side effects. Herbs of all types are available in many forms including: whole herbs, dried herbs, capsules and tablets, extracts and tinctures, poulstices and ointments.� Essential Oils of herbs are condensed and powerful and can be very effective in improving health if properly used. Many are anti-bacterial and/or anti-viral and/or have anti-cancer properties.� But knowledge of their effects and care to make sure they are safely and effectively used is needed. Provide your doctor or herbalist with information about your health history and regarding the supplements, medicines, and herbs that you are taking. Herbs may be used as a part of a holistic approach to the treatment of pain or heart disease that includes proper nutrition, exercise, and stress reduction. Herbs that might help the body restore the cardiovascular system to proper working order include those known to be hypotensive (blood-pressure-reducing), diuretic (fluid-reducing), calmative (anxiety-reducing), and tonic (energy-building). There are many of these, so there are choices to be made based on your circumstances. The anti-cancer mechanisms of polyphenols and flavonoids such as Resveratrol, Quercetin, finestin, genistein, EGCG, hesperidin, include activating the SIRT1 protein or AMPK, which can cause apoptosis of cancer cells and lowering levels of inflammatory markers like TNF-alpha and TGF-beta. (108b,40) Polyphenols also exhibit cytotoxic effects on cancer stem cells which are among the most virulent cancer cells, underlying cancer recurrence, metastasis, and multiple drug resistance (40).

 Some ways of using essential oils include aromatherapy diffusers, facial saunas in bowl with towel, as Inhalants in water container, topical applications with carrier oil, as bath oils, in massage oils with carrier oil(108f,22). For safety, a home patch test using a clean skin surface, a drop or 2 of a new essential oil in a carrier oil like coconut or olive oil, and a band aid to cover can be used before using a new essential oil.

Degenerative Conditions are commonly caused by common toxic exposures, dangerous technologies, and further diet advise:

Chronic cumulative or acute exposures to toxic substances such as mercury, lead, Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs), and pesticides (www.myflcv.com/pesticid.html) commonly occur, and also cause or are a major factor in a large number of neurological or immune conditions in millions of people (33,89,96,99,105,108,111-114,19c). (www.myflcv.com/dams.html) (www.myflcv.com/tm98.html) Eliminating exposures and/or detoxification usually results in cure or significant improvement in such conditions(33,89,94). (www.myflcv.com/recovhg.html) Combinations of subacute levels in combinations has been found to be able to exert toxic and carcinogenic effects(19c,33). Studies have found that people who are fit, even if they have other known health risk factors, have a lower risk of death compared to unfit people who have none of these factors(51b-p78). For diagnosis and treatment of metal toxicity see Mercury and Toxic Metals (33,126) and Neurology, below.

 Toxic POPs and metals exposure can come from food chain sources through both agricultural crops or the fish and seafood food chain (33,96,19), which are both threatened by increasing toxic levels worldwideThe health of marine mammals has deteriorated significantly over the past two decades. Many of the newly emerging and resurgent diseases are associated with immune system dysfunction and suggest a broad environmental distress syndrome. Marine mammals present a metabolic imbalance, so they are considered one of the most vulnerable organisms with respect to long-term toxicity of man-made chemicals such as organochlorines and mercury. Cetaceans (whales and dolphins) are known to have a poor ability to detoxify organic pollutants because they lack isozymes that are required to detoxify DDT and PCBs (96). (www.myflcv.com/fishhg.html)

 Nanoparticles are widely present in the air of workplace environments and affect immune functions, causing different immune responses. A workplace study (18) showed a statistically significant increased level of the pro-inflammatory cytokine TNF-α in serum in both industry exposed groups compared with office workers, as well as a higher level of TNF-α in workers from the woodworking company compared with the metalworking employees. We found an elevated level of IL-6 in the exposed groups as well as an elevated level of IL-8 in the nasal lavage in woodworking employees after work. Thus, it is seen that workplace exposures to air nanoparticles can cause increased inflammatory cytokines and inflammatory conditions, which can damage the neurological and immune systems.

EMF/wifi/cell phone towers/blue light from computers, cell phones, computers/LED lights, smart meters, etc. cause free radical damage, damage to blood-brain barrier, disruption of brain chemistry, increased beta-amyloid plaque, thyroid and hormone disruptions, significant reduction in melatonin, sleep disorders, cellular disfunction, heart dysrhythmias, headaches, sperm and DNA damage, hyperactivity, cancer, learning, and mood problems, lower sperm counts and sperm mobility, etc.- thus should have exposure levels reduced and treated for (99,40,103b,108,117,122,52,33,41) EMF or Wi-fi exposure have been found to increase mercury exposure in people with amalgam fillings, thus increasing mercury toxic effects (117).

Treatment includes avoidance, especially at night, and use of technologies such as wifi timers at night, protective shielding devices, blue light glasses, blue light app for cell phone, home phone and computer with cords for ethernet rather than wifi; etc. (99,103b). Google which phone have lowest Specific Absorption Rate(SAR) and switch cell phones; turn off phone where reception is very poor(more EMFs); visit antennasearch.com to find out how close to your home or location is to cell phone towers; install a kill switch to turn off EMF and Wi-fi devices when sleeping or not in use; buy devices for persons and home to protect against EMF and Wi-fi.� 

Dr. West also suggests that individual synthetic vitamin supplements such as synthetic vit E often are not effective and can cause harm and advises that a high protein, low carbohydrate diet with supplements as needed from whole foods along with exercise is the most effective way to avoid chronic health problems and recover from past poor choices (40). He and others believe there are large numbers of prescription drugs for which the benefits are less than the risk (40,21,51,52,30,99,33,41) 

GMO Foods: Over 80% of foods we eat such as corn and sow are GMO foods, and similar for many other vegetables and animal crops (100). Much of it contains dangerous levels of toxic or carcinogenic chemicals such as glyphosate (Roundup), atrazine, chlorpyrifos, metolachlor, etc. that have been documented to cause large numbers of health problems to people and animals (100). A meta-analysis of studies on glyphosate found there is a 41% increase in non-Hopkins lymphoma in the highest group of exposures(100g) and animal studies were consistent with the increased risk of cancer. A study found the consumption of GMO crops or consumption of animals consuming GMO crops were correlated with incidence of or deaths due to organ diseases, cancers, and neurological diseases (100). All of the correlations were greater than 90%, with autism and senile at 99%. Intestinal diseases were correlated with the number of acres of GMO Bt corn planted (100). Dr. Gerhauser (99) recommends boycotting all GMO foods unless a specific type is proven safe, and that eating organic where reasonable. . 

 

Mental Health (depression, anxiety, OCD, etc.) - the Nutrition, Toxic Exposure, and Exercise Connection: chronic nutritional deficiencies are a major factor in most mental health problems (40,52); common deficiencies (B vitamin complex, healthy fats, magnesium, iodine); 

 EMF/wifi/cell phone towers/blue light from computers, cell phones, computers/LED lights, smart meters, etc. cause free radical damage, damage to blood-brain barrier, disruption of brain chemistry, increased beta-amyloid plaque, thyroid and hormone disruptions, significant reduction in melatonin, sleep disorders, cellular disfunction, heart dysrhythmias, headaches, sperm and DNA damage, hyperactivity, cancer, learning, and mood problems, lower sperm counts and sperm mobility, etc.- thus should have exposure levels reduced and treated for (99,40,103b,108,117,122,52,33,41) EMF or Wi-fi exposure have been found to increase mercury exposure in people with amalgam fillings, thus increasing mercury toxic effects (117).

Treatment includes avoidance, especially at night, and use of technologies such as wifi timers at night, protective shielding devices, blue light glasses, blue light app for cell phone, home phone and computer with cords for ethernet rather than wifi; etc. (99,103b). Google which phone have lowest Specific Absorption Rate(SAR) and switch cell phones; turn off phone where reception is very poor(more EMFs); visit antennasearch.com to find out how close to your home or location is to cell phone towers; install a kill switch to turn off EMF and Wi-fi devices when sleeping or not in use; buy devices for persons and home to protect against EMF and Wi-fi. 

Green oat extract is natural MAO-B inhibitor, which increases dopamine levels and often improves depression/mood and cognitive function (99), LE Dopa-Mind

Mental Health Protocol: avoid sweets and processed food, whole foods with Mediterranean high protein, low carbohydrate diet,� Cataplex B(40), raw flax oil or sesame oil or Blue Ice Fermented Cod Liver Oil; The mind is a powerful tool for health recovery(40):� Think your way to health (Personal Power II tapes by Anthony Robbins & Attacking Anxiety and Depression by Lucinda Bassett)� Over 15 % of people experience major depression, which also result in cognitive impairment(51b). Exercise is very important in preventing or reducing mental health problems (21,40,51,52). In an 8-week experiment in which depressed people did either stretching or endurance exercise. Endurance exercise reduced depressive symptoms by 58% while stretching reduced symptoms by 22%.� Endurance exercise also resulted in greater improvement in cognitive function (51b, p80). Elderly people who did endurance exercise for 6 months experienced new cell growth and brain volume increase in the area most affected by age-related deterioration (51b, p81); DHEA is often effective at reducing major or minor depression(99b); LE dissolvable DHEA; weighted blanket (133a, www.sensorygoods.com)

Toxic exposures (mercury, lead, other toxic metals, POPs, etc.) can also be significant factors in these conditions (33,96,16-18,105,52) Mercury from dental amalgam or fish is a common factor in most neurological and immune conditions(33, www.myflcv.com/dams.html; and lead is a common cause of neurological and cognitive problems, especially in children(126, http://www.myflcv.com/tmlbn.html). Drinking water fountains and such equipment are common sources of lead (107,126).

Neurological Problems

Mercury and Toxic Metals & Neurological Problems

Mercury and Metals Toxicity is often a factor in most kinds of neurological problems (33,52,16-18,89,105,126). [common toxic heavy metal exposures (52,126): mercury, arsenic, lead, cadmium, aluminum]; For toxic metals and neurological problems - �testing is required to assess exposure levels and determine treatment( urine provocation test, hair test, fecal test, blood test, �Quicksilver Tri Test(94)) note some hair dyes can contaminate hair test,52); Dental amalgam is the largest source of mercury in most people (33af,105,113) but large fish can also have high levels of mercury, which is extremely neurotoxic); relatively low levels of toxic metals can cause neurological problems and significant exposures common; relatively low levels of lead for example increase risk of death by 25% or more(108) and mercury is more toxic than lead(33). 

(T: eliminate exposures (replace amalgams and amalgam supporting gold crowns safely, 33) and detoxification);� Arsenic is a common source of toxicity(52,33)-some common effects include progressive peripheral and central nervous system effects, arrhythmia, neuropathy, etc.(126); Lead is a common source of significant toxicity which targets the bones, brain, kidneys, and thyroid and learning behavior(52,16,17,89,126)- chronic effects include birth defects, mental retardation, autism, psychosis, allergies, dyslexia, hyperactivity, weight loss, muscular weakness, paralysis, etc (52,33,16,17,126). Cadmium which targets the liver, placenta, kidneys, lungs, brain, and bones with chronic effects including chronic obstructive lung disease, kidney disease, fragile bones, alopecia, arthritis, learning disorders, growth impairment, emphysema, osteoporosis, cardiovascular disease(52,126); aluminum is also a� common sources of toxicity to many- effects include memory loss, learning difficulty, loss of coordination, mental confusion, digestive problems, headaches, etc.(126,52) ;� all of these commonly have learning and behavioral effects on children);� mercury and lead are symbiotic with many infectious agents such as� chlamydia, Herpes, cytomegalovirus, candida, viruses responsible for cancer, etc. so treatment of these isn�t effective without reducing toxic metal levels through cleanups and detox(52,33,126). Toxic metal exposures such as mercury, lead, cadmium, etc. have been found to promote antibiotic resistant bacteria (104,33,126), with mercury being the most problematic and resulting in antibiotic resistant bacteria more resistant to treatment/ remediation(104c). Although iron is an essential nutrient, too much iron is common as people age or have liver damage and over-accumulate - which creases harmful free radicals that damage cells & DNA (52) (symptom-�� �hyperpigmentatation, tests are available).

Vitamin E is very effective against lead toxicity but Se has little effect. Methylselenocysteine is safest and most bioavailable form of selenium.(also anti-cancer effects), N-acetyl cysteine(NAC) is an antioxidant that promotes higher glutathione levels which are needed for detoxification (52,33); Chlorella has been found beneficial with toxic metals, uranium, PCBs (52,53,126), Alfalfa has high nutrient content and provides fiber for detoxing colon(52);� Cilantro(52) and other chelators (33)� have been found to improve effectiveness of other treatments where symbiotic effects of toxic metals are involved.� Green tea (EGCG), lactoferrin, and NAC have been found to have anti-cancer benefits (52).

Degenerative Neurological Conditions:  Toxic exposures cause lipid peroxidation, generation of free radicals/oxidative damage, mitochondrial dysfunction, DNA damage, inflammatory cytokins such as TMFa, and neurotransmitter deficiencies or imbalances (33,40,52).  Zinc and curcumin reduce inflammatory cytokins and inflammation and pain (51). Lipoic acid (11) and N-acetylcysteine (NAC) and vit E (gamma tocopherol) and acetyl-glutathione increase glutathione levels and protect against superoxide radical/peroxynitrite damage, so thus have an additional neuroprotective effect (33).  Zinc is a mercury and copper antagonist and can be used to lower copper levels and protect against mercury damage.  Lipoic acid has been found to have protective effects against cerebral ischemic-reperfusion, excitotoxic amino acid(glutamate) brain injury, mitochondrial dysfunction, diabetic neuropathy (Lipoic acid, True ALA (55), AlphaLipoicAcid with biotin (51), 3 gm Acetyl-L-carnitine/day).  Other antioxidants such as carnosine, Coenzyme Q10, Vitamins C & E, gingko biloba, and pycnogenol have also been found protective against degenerative neurological conditions (33,42, 51,52).�   Galantamine is a cholinesterase inhibitor and stimulates the nicotinic receptors in the brain, while modulating other neurotransmitters such as glutamate, serotonin, GABA, low bile salts (supplement) , Turmeric & proteolytic enzymes , TrueEZ-D(55)

Those with vegetarian and fish diets had lower AD incidence (109). Melatonin is protective (9). Virgin coconut oil increases glutathione levels and is neuroprotective (108,110); high homocysteine (see HHCY) (treatment: avoid red meat and dairy(109,111), regular exercise, folate, NAC(52), SAMe, Taurine, TMG, vit B12, Bit B2, Bit B6, Zinc, CDP choline, Creatine(111b) DHEA, curcumin(69) : Super-Bio Curcumin(51,4.5*), Terry Naturally Curamin Extra Strength(4.5*), Bvit), Huperzine A with Alpha GPC or Pramiracetam or Noopept (133a); ALA(11),  NAC, quercetin (12), (Coconut oil, berberine, 99); resveratrol, ElectroMagneticFields (EMF) & Wi-fi(99,108,117) (www.myflcv.com/EMFeff.html) & (www.myflcv.com/wifiSMhe.html); Intestinal flukes in brain (31), solvents (xylene, toluene,31); SOD1 gene mutations (20% of familial Alz, 52). Susceptibility factors are a major factor in who is affected by toxic metals or diet (33,108,113,126). Susceptibility is a major factor in neurological and immune system damage from toxics such as mercury (118,113,33,126). Superoxide dysmustase (SOD) is a major and vital factor in the methylation process that produces glutathione (GSH), the body systemís master protector from toxic damage- SOD1 gene is neuroprotective but the mutated form SOD1-G93A is not protective, resulting in lower glutathione levels (118). Because of this, the mutated gene form is associated with familial AD as well as being a factor in AD and other conditions by reduced glutathione availability. Mercury vapor and methyl mercury cause significant damage to SOD1-G93 cells but not SOD1 cells(118c). Resveratrol was found to counteract this damage/effect and also to counter oxidative stess and inflammation(108b). Apolipoprotein APOE4, one of the 3 blood allele types of APOE, has been found to result in inability to detoxify cells and the body and is a major susceptibility factor in AD and other neurological conditions (113). APOE2 allele people have less susceptibility to toxic effects. 

APOE3 allele people have more susceptibility than for type 2. 

 Glutathione is produced by methylation that�s responsible for brain neurotransmitter production, immune function, and detoxification. DNA methylation and other epigenetic factors are important in the pathogenesis of late-onset Alzheimer's disease (LOAD). Methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR) gene mutations occur in most elderly patients with memory loss(118e). MTHFR is critical for production of S-adenosyl-l-methionine (SAMe), the principal methyl donor. A common mutation (1364T/T) of the cystathionine-γ-lyase (CTH) gene affects the enzyme that converts cystathionine to cysteine in the transsulfuration pathway causing plasma elevation of total homocysteine (tHcy) or hyperhomocysteinemia-a strong and independent risk factor for cognitive loss and AD. Other causes of hyperhomocysteinemia include aging, nutritional factors, and deficiencies of B vitamins.

[Susceptibility factors are important in the effects of toxics on cells. (www.myflcv.com/suscept.html). The progressive loss of motor control due to reduction of dopamine-producing neurons in the substantia nigra pars compacta and decreased striatal dopamine levels are the classically described features of Parkinson disease (PD). Neuronal damage also progresses to other regions of the brain, and additional non-motor dysfunctions are common Mutations of Parkinson�s disease protein DJ-1 are known to cause a form of recessive early onset Parkinson disease, highlighting an important functional role for DJ-1 in early disease prevention. Study results show that expression of DJ-1 enhances the cells' protective mechanisms against induced metal toxicity and that this protection is lost for DJ-1 PD mutations A104T and D149A (123).

Other susceptibility factors that have major effects on accumulation and toxicity of mercury and toxic metals and thus on timing of getting chronic neurological conditions are the type of Apolipoprotein allele of the individual, along with the mutation of� mercury protective superoxide dismutase SOD1 gene and mutation the the MTHFR gene. �(In a study of amalgam filling effect on women, Hg, Ag, Al and Ba metal levels increased in women who had dental amalgam fillings for long periods and Hg had a positive correlation with SOD-1. SOD-1 may be a possible biomarker for assessing chronic Hg toxicity(118d). Significant elevation in mercury or other toxic metal concentration in muscle tissue from SOD1-G93a transgenic individuals appear to facilitate the development of AD, PD, and other neurological conditions, making transgenic individuals more susceptible to mercury and metal exposures and imbalances and being affected at earlier ages in individuals with chronic exposure such as dental amalgams (118bc,33,126).

Yu said this result suggests the human gut microbiota, a collection of microorganisms living in the intestines, may transform different types of mercury(113d). The results show that individuals with more than eight fillings had about 150 percent more mercury in their blood than those with none. Note that a gold crown over amalgam can cause more mercury exposure than an amalgam filling. 

Metals like mercury bind to SH-groups (sulfhydryl) in sulfur compounds like amino acids and proteins, changing the structure of the compound that it is attached to.  This often results in the immune systems T-cells not recognizing them as appropriate nutrients and attacking them (33).  Such binding and autoimmune damage has been documented in the fat-rich proteins of the myelin sheaths of the CNS (33) and collagen (33), which are affected in MS.  Metals by binding to SH radicals in proteins and other such groups can cause autoimmunity by modifying proteins which via T-cells activate B-cells that target the altered proteins inducing autoimmunity as well as causing aberrant MHC II expression on altered target cells (33). Studies have also found mercury and lead cause autoantibodies to neuronal proteins, neurofilaments, and myelin basic protein (MBP) (33).  Mercury and cadmium also have been found to interfere with zinc binding to MBP (33) which affects MS symptoms since zinc stabilizes the association of MBP with brain myelin.  MS has also been found to commonly be related to inflammatory activity in the CNS such as that caused by the reactive oxygen species and cytokine generation caused by mercury and other toxic metals (33,52,108,114,126). Many have been significantly improved after dental cleanups and detox (33)]. Antioxidants like lipoic acid which counteract such free radical activity have been found to alleviate symptoms and decrease demyelination (33). Phosphatidylserine has been found to be protective of myelin(103a). A group of metal exposed MS patients with amalgam fillings were found to have lower levels of red blood cells, hemoglobin, hemocrit, thyroxine, T-cells, and CD8+ suppresser immune cells than a group of MS patients with amalgam replaced, and more exacerbations of MS than those without (33).  Immune and autoimmune mechanisms are thus seen to be a major factor in neurotoxicity of metals),�

Gluten Syndrome: Gluten causes neurological symptoms, in both celiac disease and non-celiac gluten-sensitivity, by its adverse actions on the nervous system (130). Many celiac patients experience neurological symptoms, frequently associated with malfunction of the autonomic nervous system. Gluten-sensitivity can also be associated with neurological symptoms in patients who do not have any mucosal gut damage (that is, without celiac disease). Gluten can cause neurological harm through a combination of cross reacting antibodies, immune complex disease and direct toxicity. These nervous system affects include: dysregulation of the autonomic nervous system, cerebella ataxia, hypotonia, developmental delay, learning disorders, depression, migraine, and headache. Studies revealed a clear association between migraine syndrome and CD, and the high efficacy of gluten diet in the treatment of migraine symptoms(130b). Persons with schizophrenia have higher than expected titers of antibodies related to CD and gluten sensitivity (131). Vit B 6 & vit B complex can help reverse CD psychopathology, along with gluten free diet.

Over 30 % have allergic rhinitis and over 40% of children (52); Over 7% of the population have food allergies and 5% asthma). (Atopy results from overproduction of Th2 immune T cells in response to an allergen.� The first time an allergen is encountered, the Th2 cytokine IL-4 allert B cells to produce an antibody to the allergen.� Upon subsequent exposure to same antigen, an atopic individual with a dual response characterized by an immediate acute response followed by a delayed reaction with 4-8 hours (52). In an acute reaction, IgE antibodies upon binding a previous antigen, provoke release of allergic mediators including histamine, prostaglandins, leukotrienes from mast cells and basophils, which the itchy skin, runny nose responses. Later the late-phase response manifests when an antigen is presented to a T-cell that then releases cytokines like IL-5 which induce release of allergic mediators from eosinophils.�� Allergic rhinitis, atopic dermatitis and asthma are thought to be influenced by the late-phase reactions.); homemade bone broth (30)

Dr. Charles Farr found that most of his patients treated for allergies with intravenous Hydrogen Peroxide had reductions in sensitivity to pollen and to improvement in food allergies(60a) as well as allergic bronchitis, asthma, and chronic sinusitis. Immune globulins were measured before and after IV H2O2 treatments. Clinical improvement paralleled a reduction in antibody titers in these globulins(60a). �

Many studies have found that an imbalanced gut microbiome contributes to metabolic syndrome, diabetes, chronic fatigue, nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, obesity, and more (51b, p23,40,30). Toxic metals and other toxics can cause such microbiome imbalances (33,52,108,126), and also damage enzymes needed to digest and utilize nutrients and activate necessary hormones (33,40,52,108). Bacteriophages which target certain harmful bacteria and probiotics can help counteract such imbalances (51b-p33) and together can have symbiotic effects(51b). Detox and liver cleanse can also help (33,40,51,21).��

To boost cleanse, add flax meal (good quality product or NutriFlax (40)) start with 1 tsp, then increase.� For more serious gallbladder problems consider liver flush: [cup EV olive oil with lemon juice and disodium phosphate, see p93, 40] ; 

 Food allergies are a common cause of gallbladder problems and pain. According to Dr. Breneman (14). �The ingestion of the food allergens creates edema (fluid retention) in the bile ducts, and the drainage of bile from the gallbladder is impaired. This inadequately drained area is prone to infections. These infected areas then form the (breeding place) for ... stone information. When the food allergens is removed from the diet, there is no edema ... so the patient is symptom free. The foods that caused those patientís gallbladder problems were, in order of frequency, egg, pork, onion, fowl, milk, coffee, orange, corn, beans and nuts all common allergens. As long as those people didnít eat anything to which they were allergic, says Dr. Breneman, they had no more pain. The problematic foods can be determined and avoided by use of an elimination diet.

Phytochemicals and Cancer 

It is estimated that an average of 35% of human cancers (certain types up to 70%) can be attributed to diet (1), and epidemiological research has shown a link in the geographical distribution of cancer incidence to specific diet consumption. According to the World Health Organization report 2002, there are at least 2.7 million deaths globally per year, which are primarily attributable to low fruit and vegetable intake (2). This is not surprising, as the National Cancer Institute identified about 35 plant-based foods that possess anti-cancer benefits, including garlic, soybeans, ginger, onion, turmeric, tomatoes, and cruciferous vegetables (broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, and Brussels sprouts). Furthermore, the chemopreventive efficacy of these diet constituents has been demonstrated in vitro and in vivo. The substantial anticarcinogenic and antimutagenic properties of these tested dietary agents can be attributed to the non-nutritive components of these foods, termed phytochemicals. There could be more than 100 different phytochemicals in just a single serving of vegetables (2), and they can be extracted for therapeutic purposes. Since phytochemicals have not been shown to have any known toxicities, they can be considered as an alternative to the conventional chemotherapy that may be harmful. A number of phytochemicals have been found to have notable efficacy in preclinical models of carcinogenesis, such as those of colorectum, breast, lung, and hematological origin. These include epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) from tea, the flavonoids quercetin and genistein from onions and soya, curcumin in curry spice and resveratrol from red grapes (3). Chemopreventive phytochemicals can block the initiation or reverse the promotion of carcinogenesis and impede the progression of precancerous cells into malignant ones.

[Natural Chemoprevention of Cancer: AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK) is an energy sensor that plays a key role in the regulation of protein and lipid metabolism in response to changes in fuel availability(9-11)An extensive body of evidence has demonstrated that AMPK inhibits essentially all anabolic pathways that promote cell growth, such as synthesis of fatty acid, phospholipid, protein, and ribosomal RNA synthesis ( HYPERLINK "https://www.frontiersin.org/articles/10.3389/fonc.2013.00175/full" \l "B12" 12,  HYPERLINK "https://www.frontiersin.org/articles/10.3389/fonc.2013.00175/full" \l "B13" 13). Thus, it is not surprising that AMPK antagonizes cancer cell growth. When activated, AMPK promotes energy-producing catabolic pathways while inhibiting anabolic pathways, such as cell growth and proliferation thereby antagonizing carcinogenesis. Other anti-cancer effects of AMPK may include promoting autophagy and DNA repair upon UVB damage. Since the AMPK cascade has emerged as an important pathway implicated in cancer control, many discoveries have been made in the past decade revealing robust anti-cancer effects of AMPK in vitro and in vivo, including animal cancer models of breast, lung, colorectum, skin, and hematological malignancies. Among the latest developments is the activation of AMPK by naturally occurring dietary constituents and plant productstermed phytochemicals. Owing to their efficacy and safety, phytochemicals are considered as an alternative to the conventional harmful chemotherapy

A number of phytochemicals have been found to have notable efficacy in preclinical models of carcinogenesis, such as those of colorectum, breast, lung, and hematological origin. These include epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) from tea, the flavonoids quercetin and genistein from onions and soya, curcumin in curry spice and resveratrol from red grapes. Chemopreventive phytochemicals can block the initiation or reverse the promotion of carcinogenesis and impede the progression of precancerous cells into malignant ones. Metformin, the most widely prescribed Type-2 diabetes drug for more than 30 years, has been shown to activate AMPK(2223). Consistent with this, diabetic patients treated with metformin had a lower incidence of cancer compared to those on other medications. A recent study showed that breast cancer patients on metformin for diabetes responded significantly better to chemotherapy than other diabetic patients not on metformin and non-diabetic patients (26). Human cell line studies and animal studies using these phytochemicals have shown promising results activating AMPK for several types of cancer(27)

 Metformin treatment led to increased apoptosis in human lung cancer cell lines and significantly inhibited cell proliferation in a dose- and time-dependent manner(51). Metformin had similar results in animal studies for lung cancer.AMPK has been shown to inhibit cancer cell growth in various hematological cancers. Metformin use resulted in a strong anti-leukemic activity against primary Acute Myeloid Leukemia cells while sparing normal hematopoiesis ex vivo and significantly reducing the growth of AML cells in a mouse study(51). Zhang and Bowden reported that UVB irradiation, a strong carcinogen for non-melanoma skin cancer, reduced activation of AMPK, leading to increased Cox-2 mRNA stability, which may contribute to cancer development(63). In UVB-damaged tumor-bearing mice, both topical and systemic metformin prevented the formation of new tumors and suppressed growth of established tumors, demonstrating that AMPK acts as a tumor suppressor in the skin by promoting DNA repair and controlling cell proliferation (43). Curcumin has been shown to suppress tumor progression in various animal models of cancer(64-67), and to target cancer stem cells which are cancer initiating cells(40g). Recently, AMPK was found to be a new molecular target of curcumin(40). Pan et al(67). showed that activation of AMPK by curcumin has shown to be responsible for the cytotoxic effects of curcumin in ovarian cancer cells, and has demonstrated effectiveness against pancreatic breast and colon cancer (40). Curcumin is a potent stimulator of AMPK leading to chemoprevention(66,40). Anti-cancer, anti-inflammatory, blood sugar-lowering, and other beneficial cardiovascular effects of resveratrol have been reported in animal models and human clinical trials(68-71). AMPK is now a recognized target of resveratrol that mediates its anti-cancer effects(72-74). 

Flavonoids can be found in many different sources, including soy, berries, tea, wine, beer, chocolate, many vegetables, and most fruits. While there are several 1000 types, they can be categorized as flavones (quercetin, fisetin, luteolin), isoflavonoids (genistein, deguelin), and neoflavonoids (81).

The chemopreventive effects of a soy isoflavonoid genistein can be attributed to its ability to activate AMPK(82).Anthocyanin  belonging to the family of flavones that occurs in all tissues of higher plants, including leaves, stems, roots, flowers, and fruits is shown to be a powerful activator of AMPK(84)According to studies, Fisetin, a flavonoid, activates AMPK to induce apoptosis in multiple myeloma cells(85),  inhibits PI3K/AKT and mTOR and activates AMPK in non-small cell lung cancer

(86), and induces autophagy-mediated cell death by activating AMPK and suppressing mTOR in prostate cancer cells(87)Quercetin induces apoptosis via AMPK activation and p53 in HT-29 colon cancer cells(88�Similar for other flavonoids. Epigallocatechin-3-gallate, EGCG, a green tea-derived polyphenol, has been shown to suppress cancer cell proliferation and interfere with the several signaling pathways and induce apoptosis. EGCG treatment of HT-29 colon cancercells resulted in a strong activation of AMPK and an inhibition of COX-2 expression (95). Moreover, analogs of EGCG have been synthesized and found to be more potent AMPK activators than metformin and EGCG.

Activation of AMPK by these EGCG analogs resulted in the inhibition of cell proliferation, up-regulation of the cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitor p21, and suppression of stem cell population in human breast cancer cells. Furthermore, EGCG was shown to enhance the anti-tumor activity of 5-fluorouracil (5-FU), one of the most commonly used chemotherapeutic drugs, suggesting that EGCG may be used as an adjunct therapy for the treatment of advanced-stage liver cancer (98).

 Berberine, a traditional plant alkaloid used in Ayurvedic and Chinese medicine for its antimicrobial and antiprotozoal properties, strongly increased AMPK phosphorylation via ROS production, leading to inhibition of tumor cell adhesion, tumor invasion, and the expression of epithelial to mesenchymal transition (EMT)-related genes. Furthermore, berberine inhibited the metastatic potential of melanoma cells through a decrease in ERK activity and protein levels of cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) by a berberine-induced AMPK activation (99). In another study, berberine was shown to inhibit migration of colon cancer cells in an AMPK-dependent manner (100). Furthermore, 24-hydroxyursolic acid from persimmon, capsaicin, and p-HPEA-EDA, a phenolic compound of virgin olive oil, activate AMPK and inhibit cell survival in HT-29 colon cancer cells (100,103).

 In summary, the use of phytochemicals derived from dietary agents holds promise in the prevention and treatment of cancer, and AMPK is one of the major pathways activated by many phytochemicals. Not only do phytochemicals activate AMPK to increase cancer cell apoptosis and inhibit cell proliferation, but they have also been shown to be effective in reducing the toxicity associated with standard chemotherapy by increasing the sensitivity of cancer cells to drugs. [ Taken from (25), references are per that study, click on number to see reference]

Prevention: (avoid cancer causing foods and sugar and high glycemic index foods(21,40,99,26)); (eat pesticide free vegetables, some raw, low carbohydrate diet, 21,40,26); [avoid carcinogenic chemicals(eat organic vegetables- most corn and soy and processed foods contain carcinogens like glyphosate/Roundup)(99,100) (glyphosate has been found to inhibit the P450 enzyme system that is used to detoxify the body,99,100); cause liver and kidney problems, and increase risk of cancer.] [Keep oxygen level up by exercising and deep breathing exercises, get tested for toxic exposures and do cleanses and detox to lower toxic levels(33,89,94)], omega-3 oils, flax oil, low carbohydrate diet(21,40), black or red raspberry powder(Ellegic Acid, 26b), �test and correct hormone imbalances(21,52); test and/or correct vitamin and mineral deficiencies(21,40,52); PQQ(52) to improve mitochondrial function; Sulforaphane (from cruciferous veges) has strong anti-cancer properties, inhibits metabolism of procarcinogenic substances into carcinogens & detoxifies carcinogenic substances. In-vitro effects found against prostate, breast, colon, urinary cancer cells (99,26). Broccoli sprouts have stronger effects and are easy to produce at home (99,26). Beta-carotene & alpha-carotene (found in pumpkins, etc.) have been found to have anti-cancer effects (99,26). Alpha-carotene has been found to be inversely associated with the risk of death from all causes and from cardiovascular disease, and from cancer, and all other causes (99,26b). Pumpkin seeds also contain nutrients that help maintain healthy blood sugar levels and are beneficial in diabetes-which also makes one more susceptible to dementia and cancer (108, etc.). Fucoidan seaweed extract has shown anti-cancer properties (133c,etc.); Allium veggies (onions, garlic, shallots, chives, and leeks) have many bioactive compounds including flavonoids, antioxidants, phenolic compounds) which have anti-cancer effects (12,26); VIT C IV (108,128c,133a); black nightshade extract (133a & pubmed studies);

Cranberries help fight UTIs but also block proliferation of H pylori bacteria and promote gut-friendly bacteria and reduce inflammation (99). Rosemary has strong anti-cancer effects- can be used with veggies or marianades or in a humidifier (99); AHCC (extract of medicinal mushrooms,108b); Turmeric Forte (40,69) 

Chlorophyll also has strong anti-cancer effects and can counter carcinogens created in cooked meat, etc. (99) Chlorophyll also protects against aflatoxin-induced liver cancer (99).�� The Essential Oilslemon grass, frankincense, cinnamon, vanilla also have anti-cancer effects (22).

Endocannabinoid deficiency syndrome� (CEDS) 

� A person�s Endocannabinoid System (ECS) is a complex network of lipids compromising the endogenous ligands, their cannabinoid receptors, and the enzymes catalyzing the formation and degradation of endocannabinoids(95f). 

�[The human endocannabinoid system (ECS) is composed of endocannabinoids, which are endogenous lipid-based retrograde neurotransmitters that bind to cannabinoid receptors, and cannabinoid receptor proteins that are expressed throughout the central nervous system (including the brain) and peripheral nervous system. The endocannabinoid system is involved in regulating a variety of physiological and cognitive processes including fertility,[1]pregnancy,[2] during pre and postnatal development,[3] appetitepain-sensationmood, and memory, and in mediating the pharmacological effects of cannabis.[4][5] The ECS is also involved in mediating some of the physiological and cognitive effects of voluntary physical exercise, such as contributing to exercise-induced euphoria as well as modulating locomotor activity and motivational salience for rewards.[6][7][8][9] In humans, the plasma concentration of certain endocannabinoids (i.e., anandamide) have been found to rise during physical activity;[6][7] since endocannabinoids can effectively penetrate the blood�brain barrier, it has been suggested that anandamide, along with other euphoriant neurochemicals, contributes to the development of exercise-induced euphoria in humans, a state colloquially referred to as a runner's high.[6][7]

Two primary endocannabinoid receptors have been identified: CB1, first cloned in 1990; and CB2, cloned in 1993. CB1 receptors are found predominantly in the brain and nervous system, as well as in peripheral organs and tissues, and are the main molecular target of the endocannabinoid ligand (binding molecule), anandamide, as well as its mimeticphytocannabinoid, THC. One other main endocannabinoid is 2-arachidonoylglycerol (2-AG) which is active at both cannabinoid receptors, along with its own mimetic phytocannabinoidCBD. 2-AG and CBD are involved in the regulation of appetite, immune system functions and pain management.[10][11][12]] ������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Endocannabinoid_system)

 

People can be deficient in endocannabinoids due to genetics, toxic 

exposures, stress, etc. (95). �A lack of endocannabinoid activity is thought to be present in many debilitating ailments such as fibromyalgia, migraine, multiple sclerosis, seizure disorders, chronic fatigue, IBS and more,� (95 a,c,d,e,f). Whether the result of poor diet, lack of exercise, drug abuse, environmental toxins or genetic factors, endocannabinoid deficits are associated with a reduced ability or inability to adapt to chronic stress. Prolonged exposure to stress depletes endocannabinoid tone, and this, in turn, has an adverse impact on a plethora of physiological processes.�

Because the endocannabinoid system helps modulate stress response, with heavy expression in the amygdala, hippocampus and prefrontal cortex � areas of the brain associated with stress, fear, emotion and reward � CBD-rich products have shown an ability to alleviate symptoms of stress (95 c,d,e,f).

Gluten Syndrome: Gluten causes neurological symptoms, in both celiac disease and non-celiac gluten-sensitivity, by its adverse actions on the nervous system (130). A significant percentage of the population have adverse effects (133a). Many celiac patients experience neurological symptoms, frequently associated with malfunction of the autonomic nervous system. Gluten-sensitivity can also be associated with neurological symptoms in patients who do not have any mucosal gut damage (that is, without celiac disease). Gluten can cause neurological harm through a combination of cross reacting antibodies, immune complex disease and direct toxicity. These nervous system affects include: dysregulation of the autonomic nervous system, cerebella ataxia, hypotonia, developmental delay, learning disorders, depression, migraine, and headache. Studies revealed a clear association between migraine syndrome and CD, and the high efficacy of gluten diet in the treatment of migraine symptoms(130b). Persons with schizophrenia have higher than expected titers of antibodies related to CD and gluten sensitivity (131). Vit B 6 & vit B complex can help reverse CD psychopathology, along with gluten free diet. (131b). An anti-body test that measures certain anti-gliadin antibodies can be used, but doesnít measure all potential effects and may have false negatives. cccx

Insulin Resistance, hyperinsulinemia: Aging, diabetes, and obesity contribute to cellular resistance to insulin. Studies have shown that the increase in insulin resistance with age is due to factors like obesity or lack of fitness or advanced glycation end-products (AGEs), rather than aging(51b). Excess glucose causes inflammation resulting in advanced glycation end-products (AGEs) and significant adverse health effects such as high blood sugar, insulin resistance, diabetes(103a,51).

 Graves disease is a thyroid disorder characterized by goiterexophthalmos, "orange-peel" skin, and hyperthyroidism.  (Symptoms: nervousness, tremors, palpitations, insomnia, weight loss, fatigue, feeling hot); iodine deficiency: Iodoral or Prolomine Iodine by Standard Process; (low copper/zinc ratio) (24 HP) �It is caused by an antibody-mediated auto-immune reaction, but the trigger for this reaction is still unknown. It is the most common cause of hyperthyroidism in the world, and the most common cause of general thyroid enlargement in developed countries.�� SSKI (potassium iodine) drops in water (shrinks thyroid gland and decreasing thyroid production);�� 

Graves' Disease is a type of autoimmune disease that causes over-activity of the thyroid gland, causing hyperthyroidism. This over-activity is also sometimes called "toxic diffuse goiter." The thyroid gland helps set the rate of metabolism, which is the rate at which the body uses energy. When the thyroid is too active, it makes more thyroid hormones than the body needs.�� Curcumin(69): Super-Bio Curcumin(51,4.5*), Terry Naturally Curamin(4.5*),
