My Inner Peace Formula Review

Highly Recommended

This is one of the best books I have read on this field. The writing style was simple and engaging. Content included was worth reading spending my precious time.

As a whole, this book contains everything you need to know about this subject. I would recommend it as a guide for beginners as well as experts and everyone in between.

Preface to the Series

The business of dietary supplements in the Western world has expanded from the health store to the pharmacy. Alternative medicine includes plant-based products. Appropriate measures to ensure their quality, safety, and efficacy either already exist or are being answered by greater legislative control by such bodies as the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the recently created European Agency for the Evaluation of Medicinal Products based in London. In the United States, the Dietary Supplement and Health Education Act of 1994 recognized the class of phytotherapeutic agents derived from medicinal and aromatic plants. Furthermore, under public pressure, the U.S. Congress set up an Office of Alternative Medicine, which in 1994 assisted the filing of several Investigational New Drug (IND) applications, required for clinical trials of some Chinese herbal preparations. The significance of these applications was that each Chinese preparation involved several plants and yet was handled as...

Alternative Treatments And Lifestyle Changes

Although specific studies on alternative treatments for sleep apnea are generally lacking, there are well-documented natural therapies that address the altered biochemistry and etio-logic factors known to exist in sleep apnea. These therapies may prove important as adjunctive interventions, which are particularly important, given the well-documented poor compliance with nCPAP BiPAP interventions and the invasiveness of many conventional options. Diet, nutritional supplements, and environmental modifications may improve sleep-disordered breathing. Controlling inflammation and allergies is paramount in treating OSA. Allergies can cause an increase in adenoids and tonsil size as well as an increase in mucous production, which can occlude the nasal airway.

Cadmium and Copper Uptake and Homeostasis

As important suppliers of dietary minerals for humans and animals, plants form a bridge between the soil elemental composition and the food chain. Consequently, contaminated soils with potentially toxic elements such as Cd and Cu may affect crop production and the food chain and, hence, human health (Cuypers et al. 2011a).

Treatment Of Iodine Deficiency

The American Thyroid Association (ATA) recommends that iodine supplementation of 150 mg per day be given to all pregnant and lactating women, and suggests that all prenatal vitamin supplements contain 150 mg of iodine.41 Based on this recommendation, it may be possible to extrapolate this increased need to the general population. Considering that the consumption of iodine from food sources in Japan exceeds by more than 10-fold the minimally recommended ATA figure for daily iodine intake, there arises the issue of adjusting iodine-intake recommendations to optimal levels, rather than to a level that is marginally sufficient to prevent overt thyroid disease. As with far too many nutrients, the 1940s approach of dosing at marginal levels to prevent breakthrough disease fails to consider that a specific nutrient, such as iodine, does not have a single limited role, such as preventing goiter.

Pharmaceutical Scientist

As society's health care needs have changed and expanded, there has been an increased emphasis on the use of herbal remedies as dietary supplements or the search for new prescription drugs from natural sources such as microbes and plants. As a result, an increased number of pharmaceutical scientists hold doctoral degrees in natural products chemistry, pharmacognosy, or medicinal chemistry and are involved in biodiversity prospecting for the discovery of new medicines. At the turn of the twenty-first century there exists a shortage of specialists in this area, and they are in great demand if they are also trained in ethnobotany.

Natural Supports For Gaining And Maintaining Muscle Mass

Muscle-building research is useful for athletes and bodybuilders as well as for elderly patients and those with muscle-wasting conditions. Research shows that a healthy diet, resistance exercise, and nutritional supplements are beneficial for improving body composition and the body of research on nutritional supplements for athletes is growing. However, supplementation will not improve muscle size and strength without resistance training, such as weight lifting or weight-bearing aerobics. The sports-nutrition and weight-loss industries in the United States comprise a growing market, and there were reports of 14.3 billion in sales of such products in 2004.1 In addition, according to the Nutrition Business Journal, this product market increased sales by 14 to reach 15.6 billion in 2005 and is estimated to grow at a rate of approximately 5 -7 per year for the next eight years.2

Pregnancy indications

There appears to be a common misconception among patients and some practitioners alike that the terms safe and natural are interchangeable (Boon et al., 1999). Consequently, many women are inclined to believe that natural remedies are safer than pharmaceutical drugs (O'Hara et al., 1998). This perceived safety of natural products over manufactured drugs could increase the potential for adverse effects in both the mother and her developing fetus. This is due to the fact that many women initiate treatment with supplements such as Echinacea without obtaining medical advice they either self-prescribe or take the advice of others. An added potential for concern is posed by the fact that many consumers may be unaware that unlike conventional medications, herbal products such as Echinacea are not under enforced regulations by the Food and Drug Administration. To further complicate matters, every country differs in their regulatory laws regarding these products. For example, minimal...

Herbal Treatments For Adrenocortical Dysfunction

To compensate for increased stressors, many individuals have turned to ergogenic or energy enhancement substances. These herbal and nutritional supplements are thought to have some type of ergogenic activity and are among the best-selling natural products in nutrition stores, with a financial impact in the 2- 3 billion per year range. Although there is a body of scientific literature on a variety of natural ergogenic substances such as pyruvate, creatine, ephedra (ma huang Ephedra sinica), ginseng (Panax spp.), and guarana (Paullinia cupana) using animal models, there are few well-designed human clinical trials. This lack of legitimate research and the high over-the-counter use of natural products suggest an urgent need to conduct studies on the long-term effectiveness and safety of these natural ergogenic aids. Natural products (such as phytopharmacologic agents), which appear to enhance performance capacity (as demonstrated in animal and human studies), include such nutrients as...

Pomegranate Phytochemicals

The major source of dietary pomegranate phytochemicals is the fruit. Pomegranates are popularly consumed as fresh fruit, as beverages (e.g., juices and wines), as food products (e.g., jams and jellies), and as extracts wherein they are used as botanical ingredients in herbal medicines and dietary supplements. Commercial pomegranate juice (PJ) is obtained by a hydrostatic pressing process of whole fruits whereby two predominant types of polyphenolic compounds are extracted into PJ flavonoids and hydrolyzable tannins (HTs).32 The flavonoids include flavonols such as luteolin, quercetin, and kaempferol found in the peel extract17 and anthocyanins found in the arils.14,15 Anthocyanins are the water-soluble pigments responsible for the bright red color of PJ. Pomegranate anthocyanins include pelargonidin-3-gluco-side, cyanidin-3-glucoside, delphinidin-3-glucoside, pelargonidin 3,5-diglucoside, cyanidin 3,5-diglucoside, and delphinidin 3,5-diglucoside14,15 (Table 1.1). Recently, there has...

Quality issues with echinacea products

Not long after this publication, ConsumerLab.com, an independent evaluator of dietary supplements, released the results of its product review of Echinacea products (ConsumerLab.com, 2001). Eleven of 25 Echinacea products available on the U.S. market (i.e., 44 per cent) did not pass the criteria set by ConsumerLab.com for its quality review. Six products did not provide sufficient label information to identify the amount and form of Echinacea used or the species or plant part used (a Food and Drug Administration requirement), and were dropped from further testing. Four products had insufficient levels of marker compounds and one product exceeded the World Health Organization limit for microbial contamination.

What Species Echinacea Is Most Medicinal

An estimated 83 million U.S. consumers use CAM (Gertz and Bauer, 2001). Of all CAM treatments, herbal medicine has grown the fastest and Echinacea is one of the six top-selling herbal medicinal products (Ernst, 2002). Surveys in the U.S. have shown that more than 7.3 million Americans are using Echinacea, and that herbal medicine usage increased from nearly 3 of the population in 1991 to over 37 in 1998 (Briskin, 2000). A dietary supplement survey of 70 pharmacists in the U.S. showed that a majority (53 ) of pharmacists reported taking dietary supplements in which Echinacea is the top item for colds and influenza (Howard et al., 2001). In another survey determining the frequency of CAM use in surgical patients, results showed that 1,003 of 2,560 patients used CAM, of which herbal medicine (Echinacea among the most frequently used) was the most common, primarily for general health maintenance (Leung et al., 2001).

Heci Yu and Matti Kaarlas

During the last decade, along with growing interest in CAM (complementary and alternative medicine) therapy and changes in the regulation of dietary supplements, Echinacea has become one of the most popular herbal medicines throughout the Western countries, particularly in Europe and in North America, its original source (Asher et al., 2001 Barrett, 2003 Borchers et al., 2000 Kessler et al., 2001 Kligler, 2003). Echinacea is also becoming popular in Australia (Wilkinson and Simpson, 2001). In North Africa, South America, and China, people are also paying increasing attention to this herb (Berti et al., 2002 Dou et al., 2001 El-Gengaihi et al., 1998 Hevia et al., 2002 Li et al., 2002 Luo et al., 2003 Shalaby et al., 1997a, b Wang et al., 2002 Zhang et al., 2001).

Bioactivity of Aloe arborescens preparations

Arborescens refers to the tree-like habit and A. arborescens var. natalensis (Kidachi aloe in Japanese, which is also called 'doc-buster'), is naturalized on the west coast (West Sonogi penisula in Nagasaki) and the south coast (Izu penisula and Shikoku island) of Japan. A. arborescens hybridises readily with other species of Aloe with which it co-occurs. Morphologically, it is hard to discriminate A. arborescens from A. arborescens var. natalensis, and we are studying a phylogenetic analysis of Aloe species in an internal transcribed spacer 1 in A. arborescens and A. arborescens var. natalensis. The results up indicate a high sequence similarity matrix between them (unpublished data). The preparations from Kidachi aloe gel are not as popular as those of A. vera gel on the market in the U.S.A., because the gel part of Kidachi aloe leaf (leaf length, width and thickness are 200 X 50 X 20 mm on average) is comparatively smaller than the rind part and it is difficult to separate only the...

Editors

Schulman, Ph.D. is dedicated to the prevention of chronic disease using natural compounds found in plants and foods, and the empowerment of the individual to take control of his or her health and well-being. As the former director of research for POM Wonderful in Los Angeles, California, she built and managed an international team of researchers studying the health effects of pomegranates, making significant contributions to the development of the field, including 11 publications by the team in 3 years. At Wyeth's Solgar Vitamins, she developed plant-based nutritional supplements, patenting one formula, and managed claim substantiation for 450 products. She acted as guest curator for an exhibit on plant-based medicines in conjunction with Bristol-Myers Squibb at the New Jersey Museum of Agriculture in New Brunswick, New Jersey. Dr. Schulman's field experience includes studies of plants and ecosystems

Sachs Julius von

Sachs's main scientific contributions to plant science came with his early research in the mid-1800s. He enjoyed lab research more than attending lectures in school and he worked with incredible energy and determination. Throughout his career, Sachs strove to find general principles and large concepts involved in botany, rather than focus on smaller, more specific questions. He used microscopic and chemical techniques to study three main areas of plant physiology carbon use in plants, the mineral requirements of plants, and the effect of temperature on plants. This work laid the foundation for the study of plant physiology among his successors.

Plant Prospecting

Plant prospecting is the seeking out of plants for the development of new foods, prescription drugs, herbal dietary supplements, flavors and fragrances, cosmetics, industrial materials, pesticides, and other profitable products. Plant prospecting includes the selection and collection of plants from terrestrial, marine, and other aquatic ecosystems by expeditions to diverse areas of the world, such as tropical and temperate rain forests as well as arid and semiarid lands in Latin America, Africa, Australia, and Asia.

Composition

It is essential to have a good knowledge of plant mineral requirements in order to formulate optimum nutrient solutions. The ideal solution would provide the plant with the precise elements for producing the highest yield and or quality and reduce the susceptibility to biotic and abiotic stresses. The method of formulating optimum nutrient solutions is discussed ahead. However, fertilization is often empirically based. Commercial greenhouse growers generally use high nutrient concentrations in an attempt to maximise crop yield (Rouphael and Colla, 2009), but this relationship is not necessarily straightforward. In general, crop yield responds positively to increasing concentrations up to a level after which further increases often lead to no further improvement of yield (luxury consumption). When concentrations are too high, yields may even decrease (toxicity) (Salisbury and Ross, 1991).

Prospect

Ge, Ge Gen in particular, is one of the most ancient and popular medicinal materials used in TCM. Recent pharmacological and clinical studies have validated, at least to the satisfaction of The Ministry of Health in China, its efficacies in the treatment of traditional diseases claimed in TCM and its newly discovered efficacies in the treatment of cardiovascular, cerebrovascular diseases and diabetes. Significant progresses have been made in the understanding of the molecular mechanism underlying Ge Gen's therapeutic activities (See Chapter 5, 7, 9, 10 and 13, this volume) yet more work needed to be done. Results from more stringent, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trials are needed to convince modern treatment communities, especially health care providers practicing conventional medicine, that Ge Gen-based medications are safe and effective in the treatment of human diseases. Dietary isoflavones have been shown to have beneficial effects in preventing cardiovascular and a...

Nematophagous Fungi

The ecology of nematophagous fungi has been extensively reviewed 22-26 . Soil and various organic substrata, especially dung 27, 28 , are appropriate sources for these fungi. Nematophagous fungi usually prefer organic soils however, they can reproduce in nearly all types of soil because of their few nutritional and vitamin requirements 24 .
