Update on Adjuvant Nutrients and Herbs for Patients with Cancer by Dr. Michael Traub, ND, FABNO

Update on Adjuvant Nutrients and Herbs for Patients with Cancer by Dr. Michael Traub, ND, FABNO

The evidence basis for using dietary supplements and phytotherapy for supporting patients with cancer is rapidly evolving. This presentation will review recent advances in our understanding of best practices for a variety of supplements including acetyl-carnitine, alpha lipoic acid, artemisinin, ashwagandha, astragalus, berberine, black cumin seed, boswellia, co-enzyme 10, curcumin, EGCG, ginger root, grape seed, L- glutamine, lavender, magnesium, melatonin, n-acetyl cysteine, omega 3 fatty acids, probiotics, quercetin, sea buckthorn, vitamins B12, B6, C and D3. Cancer-related conditions that these supplements can target include fatigue, surgery/ chemotherapy/ radiation support, immunotherapy support, chemotherapy-induced neuropathy, cachexia, survivorship, cancer stem cells, nausea, diarrhea,...

Fish oils are NOT blood-thinners by Dr Neil McKinney, ND

Fish oils are NOT blood-thinners by Dr Neil McKinney, ND

Omega 3 oil is a marvelous natural anti-inflammatory and is also associated with positive changes in hypertriglyceridemia. These properties would be expected to give a great benefit in cardiovascular diseases (CVD). Somehow many doctors and scientists have attributed to fish oils the property of anti-coagulation. Thinning of the blood would be of concern if the patient is on blood-thinning drugs, has had hemorrhagic disorders, or is about to have surgery. Scientists from Holland looking at the health of Inuit and Eskimo in the 1970s found low rates of CVD, and attributed this largely to intake of fish and blubber (seal,...

Green Tea and Reduction of Breast Cancer Risk and Recurrence by Dr Tori Hudson, ND

Green Tea and Reduction of Breast Cancer Risk and Recurrence by Dr Tori Hudson, ND

As clinicians, you likely already know of the many health benefits of green tea, and likely some of you are already familiar with some of the research on green tea and breast cancer risk reduction and recurrence. Based on a study some years back, I have been advising women with stage I and II breast cancer to drink 5 cups/day or take a select number of capsules per day (amount is based on the dose per capsule ). This current meta-analysis is a good update on the topic. The purpose of this systematic review and meta-analysis was to evaluate green tea...

The role of mitochondria during viral infections by Dr. David W Lescheid, PhD

The role of mitochondria during viral infections by Dr. David W Lescheid, PhD

Historically, mitochondria were considered primarily as the ‘powerhouses of the cell’ because they contain the major biochemical pathways needed to produce ATP energy. However, mitochondria also have many other functions including biosynthesis of amino acids, nucleotides, cholesterol and glutathione as well as control of antioxidant defences, redox status, apoptosis and autophagy.1, 1 Mitochondria also are key controllers of the response to numerous stressors,2 including infection, tissue injury and metabolic dysfunction.3 This paper will summarize the recently discovered roles of mitochondria in regulating immune responses,4, 5 especially those necessary for fighting viral infections. Mitochondrial signals that regulate immune responses include reactive...

Laboratory Blood Markers to Track Health: By Dr Carissa Doherty

Laboratory Blood Markers to Track Health: By Dr Carissa Doherty

Heath markers are important tools in the assessment of clinical practice. Naturopathic doctors are trained to assess patients with a baseline, initiate a protocol to optimize health or treat a symptom and then reassess the protocol. Health markers have been found in the research about frailty. Frailty is a complex idea that includes a decline in biological function that will lead to deterioration of physiological function, a decline in the ability to respond to stress and an associated increase in vulnerability.  Frailty indexes have been postulated for many years using data from people and then seeing how that data changes though...

St John’s Wort Extract May Help Manage Postmenopausal Symptoms and Depression: By Dr Peter Alphonse, PhD

St John’s Wort Extract May Help Manage Postmenopausal Symptoms and Depression: By Dr Peter Alphonse, PhD

Mood imbalance and associated disorders have become increasingly common worldwide. Especially, substantial decline in the quality of life and increased susceptibility to psychological problems is usually observed during peri‑ and postmenopause. Hypericum perforatum (St John’s wort) is a well-known botanical for its mood enhancing activity exerted by various bioactive components present in it. This recent double-blind placebo controlled randomized study has evaluated the effects of St John’s wort extract on hot flashes, menopausal symptoms, and depression in 80 postmenopausal women. The researchers randomized postmenopausal women aged 45–60 years in two groups to receive either tablets containing 270–330 μg of St John’s wort (treatment...

New Clinical Study Reaffirms the Benefits of Natural Eggshell Membrane (NEM®) for Osteoarthritis: By Dr. Peter Alphonse, PhD, CFS

New Clinical Study Reaffirms the Benefits of Natural Eggshell Membrane (NEM®) for Osteoarthritis: By Dr. Peter Alphonse, PhD, CFS

Natural eggshell membrane (NEM®) is a supplement that is derived from hen eggshell membrane. It contains naturally occurring glycosaminoglycans (GAGs), glucosamine, chondroitin, hyaluronic acid, and proteins, that are useful for maintaining healthy articular cartilage and surrounding synovium and connective tissue. Studies have demonstrated that NEM® can improve symptoms of pain and stiffness associated with osteoarthritis (OA) within 7–10 days of starting supplementation. A very recent independent, multicenter, randomised double-blind placebo-controlled study corroborates these previous findings. The study was conducted across 8 different university medical centres and a total of 166 patients (male, 32; females, 134; age ≥ 40 years) with...
