Almost Half of Americans Use Alternative Medicine

Researchers at the National Institutes of Health say that nearly 40 percent of adults have used some type therapy that isn’t taught in medical schools. But more than 40 U.S. universities, including Stanford, UCLA, Duke and The George Washington University have integrative medicine centers.

With more Americans turning to alternatives, the U.S. government founded The National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine as part of the National Institutes of Health.

“Our job here at the National Institutes of Health is to bring really good science to these really interesting practices,” says Dr. Josephine Briggs, the center’s director.

Practices that are considered outside mainstream medicine, like the use of dietary supplements, meditation and yoga, as well as chiropractic adjustments, acupuncture, reiki – or therapeutic touch – and massage. A survey by the NIH in 2007 indicated four in 10 Americans use one of these practices, most often to treat pain.

If nearly half the population uses so called alternative medicine, when will it be referred to as “conventional? ”

Fish oil reduces risk of breast cancer by a third

In a new study, just published in Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers & Prevention, a journal of the American Association for Cancer Research, was conducted by a research team at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle, Washington. They investigated 35,016 postmenopausal women between the ages of 50 and 76 with no history of breast cancer who were participating in the Vitamins and Lifestyle cohort study (dubbed VITAL, short). The woman was asked to complete a 24 page questionnaire about their use of supplements other than vitamins and/or minerals.

After six years of follow-up, 880 of these women had been diagnosed with breast cancer. However, those women who reported regularly taking fish oil supplements, which contain high levels of the omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA, were found to have a 32 percent reduced risk of invasive ductal breast cancer — the most common type of breast cancer. The use of other specialty supplements, such as the herbs black cohosh and dong quai which are often taken by women to relieve symptoms of menopause, was not associated with raising or lowering breast cancer risk.

Cure Your Digestive Woes with Probiotics and Fiber by Sylvia Anderson – Digestive – InsidersHealth.com

Cure Your Digestive Woes with Probiotics and Fiber by Sylvia Anderson – Digestive – InsidersHealth.com.

Suffering from digestive problems can be one of the most confusing and exhausting physical ailments you may ever experience.  Cramping, constipation and untimely trips to the bathroom can literally take away your ability to live a fully satisfied life. Luckily, scientists are continuing to find ways to use natural ingredients such as probiotics and fiber to address those problems.

Why are Digestive Problems Such a Problem?
Digestive problems might not be so bad if you could undergo a few tests to determine the exact problem, and then figure out the best way to address it.  However, it is often very difficult to tell what specifically is causing your digestive woes.  Could it be the Chinese take-out you had two nights ago, or that sandwich you ate at midnight? Could it be that you are just under a great deal of stress?  Do you have a viral infection that is turning your stomach upside down?

Your doctor can run some helpful tests, but the truth is that no one truly knows everything about what causes digestive problems and even a disorder like Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). Unfortunately, doctors often prescribe prescription or over-the-counter medications as a “blanket” approach to treatment, which may or may not address your problem. Unfortunately such medications run the risk of side effects, putting you in more misery than where you started.

To understand the digestive system, you need to know that many things can influence how well your digestive system functions. Your digestive system is made up of many chemical reactions that essentially break down your food and provide you with nourishment.  There are “good” bacteria in your stomach that help you break down this food, as well as chemicals produced by your liver that help break down fat.  If these processes are hindered then it can throw your system off track and cause you any number of problems.

Probiotics
Probiotics have been a popular option lately for addressing digestive woes. Probiotics are essentially more of the good bacteria that already reside in your digestive tract. Adding probiotics to your diet—via a food source such as yogurt, or dietary supplements—will help your digestive tract stay balanced.

Fiber
Fiber helps in a different way. Fiber is basically the indigestible strands of “threads” that are found in fruits, vegetables and whole grains.  As the food you eat travels through your digestive system, it essentially turns into liquid form. By the time that it reaches the end of its journey, the fiber in your system will help the food reform into a solid but soft stool that can be passed easily. A lack of fiber can cause both constipation and diarrhea. By getting an adequate amount of fiber in your diet each day (not too little, not too much), you can help regulate the process and hopefully avoid any added stress on your digestive system.

Don’t hesitate to ask your doctor or other healthcare provider which one of these would be the best for you (or maybe both!). Start out with a cup of yogurt per day (with added probiotics) and see how it works for you.  Likewise, fiber can be added simply by eating more fruits and vegetables, and even by consuming things like oatmeal or whole-grain toast.

Adding more fiber and probiotics are both very cost effective and simple ways to help soothe your digestive woes.  Adding one of both of these to your diet in the proper amounts—along with plenty of water—should help to get your digestive system back in balance.

US scores dead last in global health survey

US scores dead last in global health survey.

(NaturalNews) The Commonwealth Fund recently released a report that places the U.S. last among six other developed countries in terms of quality of health care. According to the report, U.S. health care costs are roughly twice as much as they are in other countries, but the care is not as good or as efficient.

The report includes comparisons between the U.S. health care system and those of Australia, Canada, Germany, the Netherlands, New Zealand, and the U.K. However the criteria used by the foundation to assess and score the countries is based more on differing health care philosophies among nations rather than actual quality of care.

In fact, all the other nations included in the survey have “universal health insurance”, which is noted in the report as being one of the biggest differences. It does mention, however, that the “health reform legislation” recently passed in the U.S. will help to bump it up some in the foundation’s view.

The report does highlight the fact that health spending in the U.S. is typically much higher per person than it is in other developed nations. According to the report, health spending per person in the U.S. averaged more than $7,000 in 2007, while spending ranged from between about $2,500 and $4,000 in the other countries assessed.

Health care reform bill dooms America to Pharma-dominated sickness and suffering

Health care reform bill dooms America to Pharma-dominated sickness and suffering. 

Here we go folks. You better tighten your seat belts because things are about to get a little weird. The passage of this bill still does not address the fact that the United States is ranked very, very low on many healthcare  fronts. This bill addresses none of it from where I sit.

According to the New England Journal of Medicine, the United States was number 1 in terms of health care spending per capita but ranked 39th for infant mortality, 43rd for adult female mortality, 42nd for adult male mortality, and 36th for life expectancy.

Need I say more?

NIH: Vitamins and Greens May Ward Off Lung Cancer

Based on results of a recent study published in Cancer Research online, intake of multivitamins, folate and green leafy vegetables may help protect smokers from gene action that promotes lung cancer. Researchers from University of New Mexico, University of Colorado, Denver, the Lovelace Respiratory Institute and UCLA reported theirs is the first cohort-based study to identify dietary factors associated with reduced promoter methylation in cells exfoliated from the airway epithelium of smokers. The National Institutes of Health (NIH) reacted to the results, saying the three dietary factors could be protective against lung cancer in both current and former smokers.

In the trial, 1,100 participants from the Lovelace Smokers Cohort—including both current and former smokers— filled out the Harvard Food Frequency Questionnaire and provided a saliva-mucus sample, which was assessed for promoter methylation of eight genes commonly silenced in lung cancer and associated with risk for this disease. After analyzing for associations between 21 dietary variables and methylation, researchers noted significant protection against methylation relative to increased leafy green vegetables and folate intake; they also found some correlation with multivitamin intake. They concluded, “Novel interventions to prevent lung cancer should be developed based on the ability of diet and dietary supplements to affect reprogramming of the epigenome.”

You Can Beat Menopause Symptoms… NOW!

Attention sufferers of menopause symptoms – Are you sick and tired of PMS, hot flashes, unexplained weight gain, fatigue, low sex drive and other symptoms? Want to get your life back and start ENJOYING LIFE AGAIN? Then please read the results of this study:

Therapeutic effects of Klimakt-Heel® compared with a phytotherapeutic preparation for the treatment of menopausal symptoms – a randomized study *

SUMMARY:

In dissatisfaction with conventional therapies, many of today’s women turn to complementary and alternative medicine for treatment of menopausal symptoms. However, scientific studies on the effectiveness and safety of such therapies are lacking. In this study performed in a randomized fashion, women with menopausal symptoms were allocated to either the homeopathic preparation Klimakt-Heel® or to the phytotherapeutic medication Femolene Ultra® for 12 weeks.

The response to treatment and the smoothness of therapy over time were greater in the group receiving Klimakt-Heel®. None of the therapies had an appreciable effect on plasma 17-ß estradiol levels. Fewer women discontinued treatment with Klimakt-Heel® than Femolene Ultra®, indicating differences in tolerability between the therapies. A statistical analysis showed that the group on Klimakt-Heel® experienced a more significant decrease in symptoms and more women responded to treatment with Klimakt-Heel® than to Femolene Ultra® therapy.

In conclusion, Klimakt-Heel® is a safe, effective and well tolerated homeopathic remedy for menopausal symptoms and exerts its beneficial action in concordance with the principles of homotoxicology.

This growing popularity of CAM has empowered many women to deal more independently with ailments previously considered part of a woman’s condition. However, with this increasing interest and availability of remedies follows a need for clinical studies in the efficacy and safety of alternative medications, conducted with the same stringency as research in conventional therapies. The aim of the current study was to determine the effectiveness of Klimakt-Heel® compared with the phytoestrogen preparation Femolene Ultra® in the treatment of typical climacteric symptoms.

The awareness of the advantages of CAM therapies compared with conventional medical treatments is growing worldwide and the recent worry about possible negative effects of hormone replacement therapy has fuelled the need for safe and well-tolerated alternatives and extensions to common treatments.

Retrovirus May Be at Root of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Oct. 8 (HealthDay News) –

About two-thirds of patients with chronic fatigue syndrome sampled in a recent study were infected with a retrovirus called XMRV. The finding, albeit preliminary, has raised hopes that there might be a concrete cause for the mysterious malady and thus, down the line, treatments for the disease. “This study does not prove that XMRV is the cause of chronic fatigue syndrome, however it does suggest it is a viable candidate for a cause,” said Robert H. Silverman, co-author of a report appearing online Oct. 8 in Science. “But if it can be proven that the virus causes the disease, that would be a breakthrough in diagnosing, combating and preventing the disease,” added Silverman, a professor of cancer biology at the Cleveland Clinic Lerner Research Institute. “There could be an antiretroviral drug that could prevent this virus from replicating.”

Another expert was similarly hopeful. “This article could give a spark of hope, one, that chronic fatigue syndrome is caused by something, and two, if that bears out, maybe we could do something about it,” said Dr. Tamara Kuittinen, an emergency physician with Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City.

Chronic fatigue syndrome was first recognized in the late 1980s and initially dubbed the “yuppie flu,” resulting in an enduring credibility crisis.

Some segments of the medical community do not believe it is a discrete illness because there is no known cause, and diagnosis can only be made through excluding other conditions, such as depression.

“There’s no test, no clear etiology, the symptoms are vague, there’s no treatment and no cure,” said Kuittinen. “It’s very frustrating.”

Possible explanations for the disease have been far-reaching, ranging from different viruses, including Epstein-Barr, enteroviruses and herpes, to childhood trauma.

The illness affects an estimated 1 percent of people worldwide and, as its name implies, involves crippling fatigue as well as aching joints, headaches and various other symptoms.

Recently, XMRV was detected in prostate cancer patients and in prostate tumor biopsies. Like other retroviruses, it can activate latent viruses in the body, such as Epstein-Barr, which has been linked to chronic fatigue syndrome.

For this study, researchers analyzed 101 blood samples taken from patients with chronic fatigue syndrome and found the virus in 68 of the samples, as compared with only eight samples in 218 healthy patients (67 percent versus 3.7 percent).

Although 3.7 percent seems a small proportion, the authors do note that this could mean millions of people are infected with a virus whose effects are as yet unknown.

Retroviruses, a group that includes both XMRV and HIV, have genomes made of RNA instead of DNA.

“When the virus infects cells, the RNA gets copied into the DNA, then the DNA inserts itself or integrates into the host DNA,” explained Silverman. “One of the many problems with infections with retroviruses is that it’s very difficult to actually cure the patient because the virus DNA becomes part of the infected person’s DNA. Patients need to continually take drugs to keep it from replicating.”

XMRV is simpler than HIV, though, Silverman added, which is a good thing. “It’s a kind of stripped down version of a retrovirus. It has just the genes required for infection and replication. We could probably stop it with an antiretroviral drug.”

There’s also the possibility that a vaccine would prevent people from being infected in the first place.

But, stressed Silverman, “there are lots of qualifiers because it hasn’t actually been proven that it causes disease, although the evidence looks pretty intriguing. This is an area that needs more research.”

Acupuncture Found Effective for Back Pain- Study Finds it Superior to Usual Care

From Acupuncture Today, July, 2009, Vol. 10, Issue 07

There seems to be no question that Americans spend a great deal of money dealing with back pain. According to research, we spend at least $37 billion annually on medical care for back pain.1,2 Furthermore, the economy suffers another $19.8 billion in lost worker productivity due to back pain.3

In response to this, there has been extensive research on the use of acupuncture for treating back pain. A 2008 literature review concluded that there was “strong evidence” for the use of acupuncture as an adjunct to conventional therapy for lower back pain.4

Now, a new study published in the May 11, 2009 issue of Archives of Internal Medicine has added even further to the literature on the value of acupuncture in treating back pain.5

Daniel C. Cherkin, PhD, and colleagues examined a group of 638 patients suffering from back pain to determine not only if acupuncture is superior to usual care for treating back pain, but to see if needle insertion at individualized points is the mechanism of action by which acupuncture works best. A total of 10 acupuncture treatments was provided over the course of eight weeks.

Study Design: The researchers started by dividing the patients into four groups:

Individualized acupuncture: This treatment was prescribed by the diagnostician at the beginning of each visit. There were no constraints on number of needles, depth of insertion or needle manipulation. Needles were retained for 18 minutes. Seventy-four distinct points were used.

Standardized acupuncture: This protocol used a standardized acupuncture prescription considered effective for chronic low back pain, including Du 3, Bladder 23 on either side, low back Ashi point, Bladder 40 on ether side and Kidney 3 on either side. All points were needled for 20 minutes, with needle stimulation at 10 minutes and again just prior to removal.

Simulated acupuncture: This technique used a toothpick in a needle guide tube. All acupuncture points were stimulated with toothpicks at 10 minutes and again at 20 minutes, just before they were “removed.” The acupuncturists simulated insertion and removal of needles at the eight acupuncture points used in the standardized treatment.

Usual care: Participants in this group only received the care, if any, they and their physicians chose. This was mainly mostly medications, and primary care, and physical therapy visits. All participants received a self-care book with information on managing flare-ups, exercises and lifestyle modifications.

Results:

At 8-week follow up, all groups of patients showed improvement. However, the “usual care” group only improved by 2.1 points (scored on a disability questionnaire), as opposed to the individualized, standardized and simulated acupuncture groups, which improved by 4.4, 4.5 and 4.4 points, respectively. The greater improvement for the acupuncture groups over usual care continued all the way to 52 weeks, at the end of the study. Of those patients receiving real acupuncture, only 11 reported any side effects.

Interestingly, at the end of the study, there was little difference between the four acupuncture treatment groups in terms of effectiveness. The researchers speculated that this may mean that acupuncture’s actual mechanism of action may not be clear and that further research is warranted.

Nevertheless, they concluded, “Compared with usual care, individualized acupuncture, standardized acupuncture and simulated acupuncture had beneficial and persisting effects on chronic back pain. These treatments resulted in clinically meaningful improvements in function. … For clinicians and patients seeking a relatively safe and effective treatment for a condition for which conventional treatments are often ineffective, various methods of acupuncture point stimulation appear to be reasonable options, even though the mechanism of action remains unclear.

According to Josephine P. Briggs, MD, director of the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine, “The findings of this research show that acupuncture-like treatments, including simulated acupuncture, can elicit positive responses. This adds to the growing body of evidence that there is something meaningful taking place during acupuncture treatments outside of actual needling. Future research is needed to delve deeper into what is evoking these responses.”

Commentary from Dr. Denny: This interesting study compares usual or standard medical care with individualized acupuncture care, standard acupuncture care and simulated acupuncture care. All three types of acupuncture care produced better results than usual medical care. What makes this a fascinating study is the apparent benefit from the simulated acupuncture care. It is described as stimulating the acupuncture points with toothpicks on the skin. For those of you reading who are not familiar with acupuncture, there are many acupuncture techniques. There are also acupuncture techniques which do not involve puncturing the skin, which have been reported in Japanese acupuncture for generations. In fact, the Japanese have developed many devices to accomplish non-needle techniques such as Tei-shin, Yuko-shin and others. Many of these devices are used for the needle-phobic patient as well as in pediatric acupuncture. In addition there is an entire system of Japanese acupuncture where needles are not inserted or only superficially inserted on or over acupuncture points. This is called Toyohari.

In summary, acupuncture has many styles. Simply because needles are not inserted, does not make the treatment a “simulation.” Once again we see how difficult it is to “blind” treatments which actually involve patient participation. This method makes sense when you give someone a placebo sugar pill, but is very difficult to assess the effectiveness of hands-on type of treatments.
