    This Web site may be of interest. It belongs to a US medical team involved in alternative research regarding health and well-being. Their focus is nutrition rather than drugs. I have provided some excerpts from various pages of the Web site.

    "Why Cholesterol Is Not the Cause of Heart Disease

    As a result of Dr. Rath’s discovery of the vitamin C-scurvy-heart disease connection, we now understand the role of cholesterol in heart disease. High blood cholesterol can lead to cardiovascular deposits only when combined with the loss of the integrity and functional weakness of the blood vessel wall, which triggers the need for its biological repair. This is why some animals, such as bears, do not massively die of heart attacks despite the fact that every 100 ml of their blood contains about 600 mg/dl of cholesterol. They produce vitamin C in their bodies, which ensures optimum collagen production and the stability of their arteries..."

    Regarding hypertension

    "...According to Cellular Medicine, in most cases high blood pressure develops as a result of chronic deficiency of vitamins and other essential nutrients in the cells building the arterial walls. This deficiency can lead to a persistent spasm of the blood vessels and their inability to respond to a pulsatile blood flow, all of which can increase blood pressure. Some of these nutrients, such as the amino acid arginine are needed for the production of biological ”relaxing” factors. These factors help in decreasing artery wall spasms allowing them to expand to their internal diameter and thus lower blood pressure."

    Regarding inflammation (asthma, arthritis, atherosclerosis, etc.)

    "...Cellular medicine research: Various scientific studies have shown that proper nutrition helps in controlling inflammation and that some micronutrient deficiencies (i.e., vitamin A) can aggravate inflammatory responses..."

    L-lysine benefits the skeletal system. This amino acid contributes to production of collagen, a protein used by the body to make bone, tendons, cartilage and connective tissues. L-lysine also helps to keep skin healthy and elastic. Diets high in sugar interfere with the body's ability to utilize L-lysine.

    L-lysine is helpful for people who suffer from shingles and other forms of herpes. It is used in conjunction with calcium in treating osteoporosis. L-lysine enhances the body's ability to absorb calcium.

    Dietary sources of L-lysine are foods rich in protein. Red meat, legumes, sardines, cod, nuts, cheese (particularly Parmesan), eggs, and Brewer's Yeast are some of the foods which contain L-lysine.

    Is BSE the result of manganese poisoning?

    http://www.nzhealth.net.nz/dis_ease/cjd.shtml

    "...The essence of Purdey's research is that certain proteins in the brain owe their structural stability to the presence of copper ions. Cattle or humans can be contaminated with oil soluble organophosphates that effectively remove those copper ions. At the same time there can be high uptakes of manganese salts in the animal or human. This can occur due to high manganese levels in the soil; in growth enhancing chicken feed (chicken manure is later incorporated into cattle feed); or manganese formulated into fungicides. Either way the manganese ion can be absorbed by the body and bind to the proteins in the brain instead of copper. Conformational changes occur that result in the formation of proteins called prions that are resistant to the body's natural enzymes. Spongiform encephalophathy (BSE in cattle or CJDnv in humans) develops.
    Purdey's hypothesis (backed up by work by David Brown at Cambridge University)... "

    Vitamin Bs govern the emotions. B vitamins are helpful in cell rebuilding. They are important for good skin and hair. Some food sources of Vitamin Bs are: turkey, tuna, tempeh (fermented soy product), meat, whole grains, liver, beans, molasses, bananas, potatoes, peppers and Brewer's Yeast.

    B12 is especially helpful in conquering depression and overall fatigue. Food sources high in B12 are: dairy, eggs, meat, salmon, oysters and clams.

    Although beer does contain B vitamins due to the yeast in beer, alcohol consumption can negate B vitamins. A beer now and then will not be harmful. However, excessive consumption of beer or other alcoholic beverages will rob the body of B vitamins. Antacid tablets also rob the body of B vitamins.

    I suppose technically you could fight a viral infection by starving the virus, the trick is to not starve anything else in the process! Or did I pick that up wrong.

    Hi .

    My mums been studying nutrition for nearly 30 years now and she always banged on how beneficial (good) cholesterol Is for you .

    Doctors steer patients away from eggs and such likes as another post mentioned . . The doctors are Incorrect In there evaluation .

    I suppose It can open the debate up about butter being supposedly bad for you and margarine being the better option . . Err No.. Full fat milk not being as good as semi skimmed!! Err No ..

    Still doctors I suppose are not really trained In nutrition and getting people well . ha ha .

    Buckwheat was mentioned In a channeling session last year that has amazing qualities to It (although all herbs do) It helps reduce cholesterol apparently and It contains the essential amino acids that the body cannot synthesized within the body .

    Oh and steer clear of trans fats .

    daz .

    Thanks for the link.

    I would say that most, if not all non-injury ailments stem from faulty nutrition and an imbalance in the body's acid-alkaline ratio.

    Absolutely! There are a few congenital problems like lack of certain enzymes that can cause problems, but they are rare. Stress is a major factor, but how the body processes stress can also depend on nutritional status.

    As I have said so often before, a wholefood diet makes all the difference and, daz, your Mum's quite right!

    Hi dogwoman.

    Good nuitrition in pregnancy and after giving birth also helps combat post-natal depression.
