Celebrating Herbal Prescription Interaction Awareness Month, Dr Sanjay Jain Provides Tips for Alternative Herbal Remedies and Better Health

Dr Sanjay Jain, MD MBA

Washington, DC (PRWEB) July 31, 2014

Alternative medicine, using herbs and whole foods as a method of regaining and maintain health, is gaining popularity among people in a culture that’s been using chemical-laden prescription medications for decades. Many are taking a step back in time and embracing the benefits of the herbs that nature has so graciously provided.

“Mother Nature has given us some special plants that can be very helpful,” says Dr. Jain in his book Optimal Living 360: Smart Decision Making for a Balanced Life. “Aspirin comes from willow bark; taxol, a cancer drug, comes from the Pacific yew tree; and digitalis, a cardiac drug, is from the foxglove plant family.” He also notes that more than 7,000 compounds used in pharmaceuticals come from plants. On their own, most of the items from nature’s pharmacy provide helpful benefits, but without the negative side effect of modern medicine.

Herbals to Consider Using

Upon consultation with a medical professional, consider using these three, readily available herbals in daily life:

Aloe- This common house plant can be used topically on injured parts of the body to promote healing and reduce inflammation and pain. It’s best used in it’s most natural state; break off a piece, open it up and apply to the skin for fast relief.

Garlic- Don’t underestimate the power of garlic, or be put off by its potent smell. Their tiny bulbs pack a punch when it comes to nutrition, and is anecdotally said to lower levels of LDL cholesterol. Don’t be afraid to use garlic liberally; chop up several cloves to add to tomato-based sauces or stir-fries. For a quick dish that whips up easily, dice four medium size tomatoes, drizzle with 2 tablespoons of olive oil and top with a sea salt, chopped garlic, fresh basil and oregano to taste.

Green Tea- Known for it’s high levels of antioxidants, green tea is refreshing all year round. The plant sterols in the tea aid in reducing the risk of heart disease.

Before tossing prescription medicines out and buying a basket full of herbal supplements consider these tips from Dr. Jain:

Always check with a physician before consuming supplements. Both doctors advocating alternative medicine and those conventionally trained will be able to give advice on which supplements are harmful in combination with medications or existing health conditions.

Buy quality supplements. When it comes to health, money should never be the deciding factor. Choose a product that has a good reputation and comes from a manufacturer who guarantees standardized doses. If money is an issue, choose one high-quality item over multiple low-quality ones.

Choose single ingredient supplements. Multi-vitamins and herbal formulas boast many benefits, but whenever possible, choose supplements that contain just one herb rather than a whole array.

Buy dried herbs in small batches. Fresh herbs are always superior to dried, since the beneficial components deteriorate over time. For those who must buy dried herbs for teas and soups, buy small batches and smell them to make sure they’re still fragrant.

Using herbals as part of daily life and for medicinal purposes is a great way to stay healthy, courtesy of Mother Nature. As always, check with a medical professional before taking any supplements.

Is a Dietary Supplement with More Ingredients Better?; polyDNA Answers Survey Question and Recommends Novirin, a Dietary Supplement with Just Five Ingredients

Is a Dietary Supplement with More Ingredients Better?; polyDNA Answers Survey Question and Recommends Novirin, a Dietary Supplement with Just Five Ingredients

Rochester, NY (PRWEB) April 27, 2014

polyDNA’s latest survey discovered that 74% of respondents wondered if dietary supplements with many ingredients were “better” than those with just a few. Some companies claim that more ingredients make dietary supplements more effective. However, the FDA notes that part of the safe use of dietary supplements is ensuring that natural products do not have “too much or too little of a dietary ingredient.” (See the FDA, last updated December 7, 2013) (1). In addition, “Manufacturers are responsible for substantiating the safety of dietary ingredients and also for determining that certain structure/function and other claims they make about their products are substantiated by adequate evidence to show that the claims are truthful and not misleading (1).” Novirin was designed with exactly the right number of ingredients at the right doses to target latent viruses in infected individuals. Customers of polyDNA can trust this claim because a post marketing clinical study showed that, as predicted, individuals infected with HPV, EBV, HSV, HCMV, and HCV reported a safe decrease in their symptoms following treatment with the Novirin formula.

“Dietary supplements contain a variety of ingredients, such as vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and herbs or other botanicals. Research has confirmed health benefits of some dietary supplements but not others.” (See the NIH, last updated March 2013) (2). Research confirms that Novirin is one of the dietary supplements with proven health benefits.

Novirin shares the same formula as Gene-Eden-VIR, which was shown to “safely and effectively decrease symptoms in individuals infected with the HPV, HSV, EBV, HCMV, and HCV.” (See Pharmacology & Pharmacy, from September 2013) (3).

The difference between the two products is that Novirin has higher quality, more expensive ingredients. The Novirin/Gene-Eden-VIR formula was tested in two post-marketing clinical studies published in September 2013 and March 2014, respectively, in the peer reviewed medical journal Pharmacy & Pharmacology (3).

Interested individuals can view the two published studies here, and

“We urge the public to have the highest trust in dietary supplements, like Novirin, that were tested directly in a clinical study and were proven safe and effective.” – Mike Evans, polyDNA

Each ingredient of Novirin was chosen through a scientific approach. Scientists scanned thousands of scientific and medical papers published in various medical and scientific journals around the world to identify the highest quality, safest, most effective natural ingredients that target latent viruses.

A second clinical study showed that the Novirin/Gene-Eden-VIR formula decreased physical and mental fatigue. (See Pharmacology & Pharmacy, from March, 2014) (4).

(4) Gene-Eden-VIR Decreased Physical and Mental Fatigue in a Post Marketing Clinical Study That Followed FDA Guidelines; Results Support Microcompetition Theory. Published in March 2014.

polyDNA is a biotechnology company that develops dietary supplements using the unique scientific method developed by Dr. Hanan Polansky, which is based on Computer Intuition.

In addition to his unique scientific method, Dr. Polansky published the highly acclaimed scientific discovery, called Microcompetition with Foreign DNA. The discovery explains how foreign DNA fragments, and specifically, DNA of latent viruses, cause most major diseases.

polyDNA developed Novirin, an antiviral natural remedy that helps the immune system kill latent viruses.

How and Why Natural Remedies are so Much Better

How and Why Natural Remedies are so Much Better

If you have not investigated the use of natural remedies for a wide variety of typical health problems, you are missing out on what could be your best, healthiest, and most effective options. Natural remedies are healthier for you than prescription drugs, they have far fewer nasty side effects, and are almost always significantly less expensive than prescription drugs, even after your health insurance co-pays.

For example, although there are many over the counter and prescription medicines available for heartburn relief, natural remedies for heartburn may be just as effective and cause fewer side effects. With the introduction of products that can hurt our bodies just as much as they help us, the popularity of natural herbal remedies parties is growing.

If you read the side of the bottle for traditional medications, you will see a list of the possible side effects, like “will cause drowsiness and diarrhea”. Well of course this medication will cure your headache, because you will forget all about your headache when you fall asleep on the toilet!

If you have never used natural remedies, you may want to start slowly so you can begin to see the benefits. You may want to begin to incorporate the benefits of natural health into your everyday life by stocking your medicine cabinet with herbal remedies, replacing non-natural brand-name products. But like anything else, natural remedies are good for what they are designed to cure or prevent, so make sure, just like with traditional medications and drugs, that you understand the ailment that you are treating. For example, you cannot apply skin lotion to your elbow and expect it to resolve your migraine problem. Is that an extreme example? Not according to many of the calls taken by the professionals in this industry, believe it or not!

Yes, there are many cures, prescriptions, OTC (over the counter) or natural for something as common as acid reflux, but every person is different in the sense that some or all remedies might not work, or m ay lose their effectiveness after many uses. In the end, for some people, it may not be enough to avoid personal acid reflux triggers or use a natural remedy. As you use natural remedies, keep in mind that one particular remedy may not work for you. But the beauty of natural remedies is that if one does not work for you, there are a dozen others that can, in the same sense that if one prescription antibiotic does not work for you, there are many others that may.

Thousands of years ago, the people of the earth understood our bodies to a surprising level. They understood the need to keep your body in chemical balance. For example, it was important to them to use only natural remedies, and people have been using rhubarb as one of the natural remedies for heartburn and indigestion, which is still used by native Americans today. Also one of the best natural gum disease remedies known today is tea tree oil gel.

Another example is that vitamin D is one of the best natural gum disease remedies easily available. Overall, given its absence of toxic reactions and its effectiveness at promoting high-quality sleep, valerian root remains one of the best natural remedies for insomnia. Herbal remedies play an important role in the natural ways to overcome insomnia, and they are much better for you and far less chance of becoming habit-forming than their prescription counterparts.

You owe it to yourself to keep yourself as healthy as possible, and you should be encouraged to try natural remedies and herbal remedies. You will likely find that they are better and you will feel better as a result.

Synthetic Vs. Natural Vitamin Supplements: Which Is Better?

Synthetic Vs. Natural Vitamin Supplements: Which Is Better?

Vitamins are organic compounds that help in the body’s metabolism and maintenance. Vitamins can be absorbed from numerous food sources, but are especially abundant in fruits and vegetables. However, there may still be nutrients that your body will not be able to absorb, or that you may not be getting enough of from your diet. This is why vitamin supplements are important.

There are 12 essential vitamins that our body needs to function effectively. These include Vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B12, C, D, E, K and folate. These vitamins have been shown to protect the body from certain illnesses, including heart disease and cancer. Lack of vitamins in the body can result in various diseases, including blindness, anemia, birth defects, bleeding disorders and bone deformities, among others. Vitamin supplements provide your body with the recommended daily amounts of essential vitamins, and help prevent the development of these diseases.

Nowadays, numerous vitamin supplements exist, available in different forms. Vitamin supplements are available in all health stores and can also be ordered online. These vitamin supplements can generally be divided into two categories: natural and synthetic. At present, there is a continuing debate regarding which kind of supplement is more beneficial to the body.

Natural vitamin supplements are vitamins extracted from natural food products and processed to create a food supplement. Meanwhile, synthetic vitamin supplements are man-made vitamins chemically processed in a laboratory.

Research has been leaning more towards natural vitamin supplements as the more beneficial product between the two categories. Studies on synthetic vitamin supplements have resulted in mixed results. Some scientists believe that taking synthetic vitamin supplements could result in numerous side effects, especially when the vitamins are taken in large amounts. This is because synthetic vitamin supplements contain numerous chemicals, which could react adversely with your body. Just as lack of vitamins results in various diseases, excessive intake of vitamins have also been known to cause a myriad of toxicities, including hypersensitivity reactions, diarrhea and bone damage, to name a few.

Recent studies have also shown that natural vitamins are better absorbed and processed by the body than their synthetic counterparts. This allows you to get the most out of your supplements, ensuring that you have adequate vitamin levels in your body.

Since natural vitamin supplements appear to be the better choice, it is best for you to find a natural supplement that can provide all these benefits.

When choosing a natural vitamin supplement, make sure that the supplement contains all 12 essential vitamins. Also, check that the supplement is really natural. Some synthetic products manipulate their advertising to make it appear that the product is natural, when in fact, it isn’t. Look closely into the ingredients used in the product, and research on them. Take advantage of some websites that allows you to check up on these supplements and their contents. Finally, before taking any natural vitamin supplements, it is best to consult a qualified nutritionist or your physician first.

Don’t forget that no vitamin supplement can replace a healthy, balanced diet. It is recommended that you eat a vitamin-rich diet, which can be achieved by increasing your intake of vegetables and fruits. A healthy diet, complemented by a high-quality natural vitamin supplement, can ultimately give you a stronger body and help you live a longer life.

ABSTRACT: Vitamin supplements are necessary to keep your body healthy. Natural vitamin supplements can provide you with adequate amounts of vitamins needed in your diet, without the side effects associated with its synthetic counterpart.
