Acid Blockers Triple Risk of C. Diff Infections

submitted by: admin on 11/24/2019
  Use of proton pump inhibitors such as Prilosec, Nexium, Protonix, Aciphex and others were associated with a 320% increase in C. diff enterocolitis after just 30 days of treatment. PPIs block the absorption of calcium, magnesium, iron and B12 and increase the risk for osteoporosis, senile dementia, and cardiac rhythm disturbances as well.                  

Angina

submitted by: admin on 02/18/2015
Angina is the pain caused by insufficient blood flow to an area of the heart. While this is not lethal in itself, it can be very painful and disabling, and is also a warning that there is at least one blood vessel that is severely blocked and in danger of closing off entirely. A myocardial infarction may be impending. Dr. Saputo recommends the following...

Diuretics: Are They Overused?

submitted by: admin on 09/19/2013
Diuretics are used for a number of reasons. They can be lifesaving for some conditions. Thiazide drugs are the best treatment for hypertension, but they have side effects too.      

High Calcium Intake Doubles Risk for Heart Disease

submitted by: admin on 09/24/2013
  Calcium intake above 1400 mg per day is associated with doubling the risk of dying from a heart attack in both men and women. There are many studies showing that in women with osteoporosis who take large doses of calcium are at risk for both heart attacks and stroke. Although it may be logical to try and replace the lost calcium in bone in osteoporosis...

Hypertension: What is it with Russ Jaffe, MD

submitted by: admin on 10/09/2013
Hypertension is a physical adaptation to resistance to flow. When our blood vessels are too narrow for a variety of reasons the pressure we need to sustain perfusion is high. Some of these mechanisms such as stress, kidney hormonal factors that are out of balance, blood that is too thick, mineral imbalances, oxidative stress, and idiopathic. There's a balance...

Magnesium

submitted by: admin on 05/30/2024
This mineral has profound effects on our biochemistry and physiology in many diseases such as asthma and heart disease. Measuring it is under-utilized and should involve measuring intracellular levels, not just serum levels because 99% is intracellular, not in blood. 

Magnesium for Bone Density

submitted by: admin on 10/10/2013
Magnesium deficiency affects 80% of us. It is critical for hundreds of enzymatic reactions in the body. We need about 500 mg of magnesium glycinate. It is critical for building bone. Many micronutrients and lifestyle measures are needed to build bone. The dangers of calcium supplements in causing arteriosclerosis and kidney stones are reviewed.

Medications After a Heart Attack are Crucial

submitted by: admin on 10/11/2013
If you have had a heart attack and you don't take your prescription medications leads to an 80% higher risk for another heart attack. Nutritional alternatives are often as good as medications, but not enough MDs know sufficient information to do this safely. Drugs such as beta blockers, afterload reducers, and anticoagulants. Some natural alternatives are...

Minerals that Help in Diabetes

submitted by: admin on 10/11/2013
Both chromium and vanadium improve insulin sensitivity and are valuable adjuncts to treating type 2 diabetes. Measuring the insulin level is very important and tips us off, even in the presence of a normal blood sugar level, that pre-diabetes or the metabolic syndrome is present. Chromium must be used at dosages of 1000 micrograms per day to be effective. Meats,...

Proton Pump Inhibitors Increase Risk for Kidney Failure and Heart Attacks

submitted by: admin on 05/24/2016
Proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) such as Prilosec, Nexium, Protonix, and Aciphex have been available for about 20 years and each year about 15 million people use them and bring in $10 billion every year. PPIs are vastly overprescribed by MDs and because they are available over the counter, are overused by patients. The major known side effects of PPIs include...

The Dangers of Thiazide Diuretics in Treating Hypertension

submitted by: admin on 04/12/2015
According to a collaborative study between the University of Texas Medical Center and UCSF Medical Center that was published in the Journal of the American Geriatric Society in June of 2014, people over the age of 65 who are treated with thiazide diuretics (such as HCTZ -- which is hydrochlorthiazide -- or Hygroton), are in danger of developing several...

Treating Hypertension Extends Life

submitted by: admin on 02/19/2015
  The first long term study (22 years) showed that for every month of treatment with chlorthalidone for high blood pressure extended life by one day. This JAMA of December 2011 showed that over 10 years this is 4 months of life extension. It has already been well established that strokes and heart attacks are reduced dramatically, and that may be much...

Vitamin C Prevents Kidney Stones

submitted by: admin on 10/17/2013
  With all the good research done on whether or not vitamin C causes kidney stones, it is a bit surprising that the March 2013 issue of the journal Internal Medicine published a very low quality epidemiological study doing a hatchet job on vitamin C as a cause for kidney stones. The premise is that one of the five metabolites of vitamin C is oxalate,...
