There is a report out about the medications increasing the risk of dementia:

"April 26, 2018

Certain common medications tied to 30% higher dementia risk, study finds

...

(CNN)Many older adults know that long-term use of certain medications can negatively affect cognition and increase one's risk of dementia.
But a new study suggests that some classes of anticholinergic drugs -- particularly those used to treat depression, Parkinson's and urinary incontinence -- carry a higher risk than others.
Anticholinergic drugs function by blocking the effects of acetylcholine, a chemical released by nerve cells to send signals to other nerves and muscles. They are prescribed to 20% to 50% of older adults in the United States to treat a variety of neurological, psychiatric, gastrointestinal, respiratory and muscular conditions, according to a 2009 study. In the UK, 34% to 48% of older adults take them, another study found.

I prefer foods and food nutrients for many reasons. Including that they seem to be helpful for people with issues like dementia. For some details, check out my published paper, Can Cognitive Deterioration Associated with Down Syndrome be Reduced? http://www.healthresearch.com/cognitive.htm.

Despite the title it discusses issues such as Alzheimer's and diabetes.

Are you a Chiropractor looking for an Easy Way to Incorporate Nutrition into YOUR Practice?

As a doctor of chiropractic, you have been taught that there is a relationship, a “Chiropractic Connection”, between the spine and other body systems.

The three primary causes of vertebral subluxation complex are physical, chemical, and mental. Adjustments treat the physical, proper nutrition treats the chemical, and feeling better can help treat the mental.

...

Now, here are three easy steps to combine Chiropractic with nutrition:

1) After determining which vertebrae have problems, chiropractically treat as you normally would.

2) Then, further help your patients by advising nutritional supplements for each problem vertebra. Look at the Chiro Nutrition Chart™ (this link opens a window). In general:


If inflammation is present, recommend 4-6 Inflam-Enzymes per day.
If muscle tightness is present, recommend 2-6 Magnesium Complex per day.
If joints are a problem, suggest 2-6 Advance Joint Complex per day.
If other body systems are involved, then also advise one or more of the products listed under the “Product Considerations” on the Chiro Nutrition Chart™.

3) Since most people take a synthetic multiple vitamin, it would be better for their health to take 100% Food Vita-Mineral directly from you – so consider recommending this unique 100% Food multi-vitamin. Since it is 100% Food, Vita-Mineral does not contain toxins and unnatural compounds—is not that the type of product you should recommend?


Now, Inflam-Enzymes is the primary supplement used by many chiropractors. It can be an excellent choice when inflammation and/or pain are present. Inflam-Enzymes contains herbs like acerola cherry, bromelain, papain, serrapeptase, plus 100% Food manganese, magnesium, calcium, and vitamin C.


Magnesium Complex is a great choice when muscle tightness is involved. Since it is 100% Food, it is better retained in the muscles and does not cause diarrhea like the commonly-used mineral salt forms of magnesium can.


Advance Joint Complex is the best knee and hip product we know of. Unlike other formulas, it DOES NOT CONTAIN isolated chondroitin or glucosamine, nor does it contain any mineral salts. Advance Joint Complex contains herbs, Food minerals, and glandulars which have been shown to be beneficial for joint and connective tissue health (including knees).

Professionals can, and often do, come to different conclusions when reviewing scientific data. None of these statements have been reviewed by the FDA.

Dear Doctors:

While we do allow health care professionals to list and sell FOOD brand products over the internet, this has always been subject to certain rules:

...

• Since FOOD brand products are a professional line, we expect them to be sold by health care professionals. We also do not want anyone to be ‘poaching’ clients from other health care professionals.
• Because of this, we do not knowingly sell to anyone who discounts the product below the Suggested Retail price over the internet. This means that FOOD brand products are NEVER to be offered online below the suggested retail price that is on the price lists we send out from time to time.
• Since FOOD brand products are a professional line, we also do not allow them to be listed on consumer sites such as Amazon.com. If we see this occurring, our policy is to stop selling to the party that is reselling.

Now, I realize that most of you do not sell products over the internet. But as ecommerce becomes more entrenched, you and others might do so. Therefore, I thought this would be a good time to remind you and others of our policies.
Thank you for allowing us to supply you with our 100% FOOD supplements.
Sincerely,

Robert Thiel, Ph.D., Naturopath and Nutrition Scientist
President

Flu shot claimed to be only 17% effective.

On December 13, 2017, I posted here that the currently recommended flu shot was shown not to be that effective in Australia, and that I would not take it.

Notice something in the news today:

...

Researchers have known that this year's prevalent virus is the influenza A virus H3N2, but a new Canadian report suggests that the H3N2 component of the flu vaccine is 17 percent effective at preventing infection. http://www.cleveland.com/…/2018_flu_update_flu_shot_effec.h…

Building one's immune system is what I recommended and still advise.

New research suggests that this year's flu vaccine is even less effective than originally thought, and that people who got the shot are vulnerable to getting sick anyway. Five more flu-related deaths in Cuyahoga County were reported this week, bringing the total to 16 this season.

Researchers Discover 'Anxiety Cells' In The Brain

A new animal study confirms something that I have contended for years (https://www.npr.org/…/researchers-discover-anxiety-cells-in…).

Which is?

...

That anxiety can be helped with the right nutritional support for the brain and adrenal glands. It is not that emotions do not play a role (they do), but in many people who get overly anxious or even have panic attacks, there is a physical component.

While there is not one herb, nutrient, or gland (or combination thereof) that works for everyone, clinically I have found that many feel better with products like Anxie-Tone, Restful Mind Support, Inositol Complex, Magnesium Complex, and/or Serious Brain Enhancer--with Anxie-Tone and Restful Mind Support the products I consider first (for brain 'tangles' Herbal Antioxidant and sometimes Inositol Complex).

Scientists who identified specific brain cells in mice that control anxiety say the discovery could provide insights that might eventually help people with panic disorder and social phobia.

Written in an article by SCIENCEDAILY.COM, and according to a new study from the University of Guelph, Omega-3s from fish pack a stronger punch than flaxseed, and other oils when it comes to cancer prevention.

We recommend using Omega 3/EPA/DHA by Doctors' Research Inc.

Omega 3/EPA/DHA is a 100% Food supplement that is intended to supply nutrients needed to provide high quality herring source essential fatty acids like omega 3 as well as EPA, DHA, and support factors. In add...ition to their structural roles, essential fatty acids modulate cell to cell interactions. Western diets are notoriously low in life-sustaining omega-3 essential fatty acids. This product is molecularly distilled for purity and to insure it meets quality standards.

Omega 3/ EPA/ DHA naturally contains those nutrients found in molecularly distilled Herring oil. Food nutrients are better because they contain important enzymes, peptides, and phytonutrients CRITICAL to the UTLIZATION of vitamins, and minerals which are not present in isolated USP nutrients. Published research has specifically concluded that food vitamins are SUPERIOR to synthetic/USP vitamins.
Suggested Use: 1-6 capsules per day, or as recommended by your health care professional. Adjust dosage according to nutritional lifestyle requirements.

Some of these studies (or citations) may not conform to peer review standards (though most do). Therefore, the results are not conclusive. Professionals can, and often do, come to different conclusions when reviewing scientific data. None of these statements have been reviewed by the FDA.
