Herbal Therapy And Nutritional Supplements

Botanical medicine or herbal therapy is a type of complementary alternative therapy that uses plants or herbs to treat various disorders. Individuals worldwide use both herbal therapy and nutritional supplements extensively. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), 80 of the world's population relies on herbs for a substantial part of their health care. Herbs have been used by virtually every culture in the world throughout history, from the beginning of time until now. For example, Hippocrates prescribed St. Johns Wort, currently a popular herbal remedy for depression. Native Americans used plants such as coneflower, ginseng, and ginger for therapeutic purposes. Herbal therapy is part of a group of nontraditional therapies commonly known as complementary alternative medicine (CAM). Unfortunately, CAM therapies are not widely taught in medical schools. A 1998 survey revealed that 75 of 117 US medical schools offered elective courses in CAM or included CAM topics in required...

Dietary Supplement Health and Education

Because herbs cannot be sold and promoted in the United States as drugs, they are regulated as nutritional or dietary substances. Nutritional or dietary substances are terms used by the federal government to identify substances not regulated as drugs by the FDA but that are purported to be effective for use to promote health. Herbs, as well as vitamins and minerals, are classified as dietary or nutritional supplements. Because natural products cannot be patented in the United States, it is not profitable for drug manufacturers to spend the millions of dollars and the 8 to 12 years to study and develop these products as drugs. In 1994, the US government passed the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act (DSHEA). This act defines substances such as herbs, vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and other natural substances as dietary supplements. The act permits general health claims such as improves memory or promotes regularity as long as the label also has a disclaimer stating that the...

Educating the Client on the Use of Herbs and Nutritional Supplements

The use of herbs and nutritional supplements to treat various disorders is common. Herbs are used for various effects, such as to boost the immune system, treat depression, and for relaxation. Individuals are becoming more aware of the benefits of herbal therapies and nutritional supplements. Advertisements, books, magazines, and Internet sites abound concerning these topics. People, eager to cure or control various disorders, take herbs, teas, megadoses of vitamins, and various other natural products. Although much information is available on nutritional supplements and herbal therapy, obtaining the correct information sometimes is difficult. Medicinal herbs and nutritional substances are available at supermarkets, pharmacies, health food stores, specialty herb stores, and through the Internet. The potential for misinformation abounds. Because these substances are natural products, many individuals may incorrectly assume that they are without adverse effects. When any herbal remedy...

Preface to the Series

The business of dietary supplements in the Western world has expanded from the health store to the pharmacy. Alternative medicine includes plant-based products. Appropriate measures to ensure their quality, safety, and efficacy either already exist or are being answered by greater legislative control by such bodies as the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the recently created European Agency for the Evaluation of Medicinal Products based in London. In the United States, the Dietary Supplement and Health Education Act of 1994 recognized the class of phytotherapeutic agents derived from medicinal and aromatic plants. Furthermore, under public pressure, the U.S. Congress set up an Office of Alternative Medicine, which in 1994 assisted the filing of several Investigational New Drug (IND) applications, required for clinical trials of some Chinese herbal preparations. The significance of these applications was that each Chinese preparation involved several plants and yet was handled as...

Phytoestrogens in the Human Diet

Soybean products such as tofu, although it is not present in soy sauce. Genistein, extracted from soybean plants, can also be obtained as a dietary supplement. Dietary supplements, which are often pills, powders, or tinctures containing plant-derived products, can be purchased over the counter. In the United States, the manufacture and sale of such products, classified as dietary supplements, is far less closely regulated and standardized than the manufacture and sale of food and drugs. Some of the evidence for the role of phytoes-trogens in women's health is circumstantial. It is based, in part, on observations that women who live in countries such as Japan and China, where soy products are widely consumed, have a lower incidence of diseases such as osteoporosis and breast cancer. Clearly, other factors, genetic and environmental, may be contributory. Health claims attributed to phytoestrogens, including genistein, need further evaluation in well-designed clinical trials before such...

Health Supplement Alert Melatonin

Melatonin is a hormone produced by the pineal gland in the brain. The use of melatonin obtained from animal pineal tissue is not recommended because of the risk of contamination. The synthetic form of melatonin does not carry this risk. However, melatonin is an over-the-counter dietary supplement and has not been evaluated for safety, effectiveness, and purity by the FDA. All of the potential risks and benefits may not be known. Supplements should be purchased from a reliable source to minimize the risk of contamination. Melatonin has been used in treating insomnia, overcoming jet lag, improving the effectiveness of the immune system, and as an antioxidant. The most significant use is for the short-term treatment of insomnia at low doses. Individuals wishing to use melatonin should consult with their primary health care provider or a pharmacist before using the supplement. Possible adverse reactions include headache and depression. Drowsiness may occur within 30 minutes after taking...

Conclusions And Recommendations

Based on the data outlined, it is clear that the elderly are a population at special risk for malnutrition that may lead to increased risk of infection. Global malnutrition is particularly prevalent in hospitalized elderly and may become worse during the hospitalization. Reversible causes of malnutrition such as depression, dental disorders, poorly controlled diabetes, and medication-induced anorexia are common in elderly outpatients and undertreated. Among micronutrients, deficiencies of vitamins A, B12, and E and the trace elements zinc and selenium appear to be most prevalent and of greatest importance for immune function in elderly subjects. The majority of data favor a daily multivitamin trace-mineral supplement in elderly adults with additional vitamin E if necessary to achieve a daily vitamin E dose of 200 mg d. Specific replacement therapy should be provided for those individuals with documented deficiencies of other micronutrients (particularly vitamin B12), but specific data...

Environmental Factors

Fetal Alcohol Syndrome Vulva

Retinoids, such as etretinate, may have the potential to cause abnormalities. With the recent support for the use of multivitamins containing folic acid, there is concern that overuse of vitamin supplements could be harmful, since most contain approximately 8,000 IU of vitamin A. How much is potentially harmful is controversial, but most scientists agree that 25,000 IU is a threshold level for teratogenicity.

Special Aspects of Nutritional Assessment in Down Syndrome

There is much controversy surrounding variations in v itamin and mineral requirements for children with Down syndrome. Studies to date have not shown any increased requirements due to Down syndrome itself. One study, however, showed that 80' of the children in the study had problems related to food intake or feeding, including excessive calorie intake and low intakes of iron, calcium, vitamin C. and lluid.7 If diet intake is limited due to selective food intake, a multiv itamin with iron may be indicated. Supplementation with additional nutrients beyond a standard multivitamin is not indicated at this time. Children who may be receiving supplementation at levels well above the RDA should be monitored to insure intake does not reach toxic levels.

Risk Factors For Anogenital Sil And Cancer Other Than Hpv Infection

Cigarette smoking has been shown to be associated with CSIL, and this was presumed to be mediated by exposure of tobacco-related carcinogens to HPV-infected epithelium and through attenuation of cervical epithelium Langerhans cell number and function. In more recent studies, however, in which the data were adjusted for HPV infection, cigarette smoking was not an independent risk factor (24,25). The association between cervical cancer and oral contraceptive use is not clear, with some but not all studies showing an association. Dietary factors have been proposed and some studies suggest an association between folate deficiency and CSIL (26,27). However, dietary supplements of folic acid appear to have little effect on the natural history of the disease (28,29). In a study of women with CSIL compared to controls without CSIL, after adjusting for HPV infection and demographic factors there was an inverse correlation between plasma a-tocopherol and ascorbic acid levels and risk of CSIL...

Acquired Folate Deficiency

Folate deficiency, next to iron deficiency, is one of the most common micronutrient deficiencies worldwide. It is a component of malnutrition and starvation. Women are more frequently affected than men. Folate deficiency is common in mothers, particularly where poverty or malnutrition is prevalent, and dietary supplements are not provided. Folate stores are depleted after 3 months or sooner when the growing fetus and lactation impose increased demands for folate. The major benefit of folate sufficiency for the fetus is the prevention of neural tube defects. This is currently best achieved by administering folate (and cobalamin) to mothers during the pericon-ceptional period.

Iron and Zinc Interactions in

Zinc deficiency is associated with poor growth, loss of appetite, skin lesions, impaired taste acuity, delayed wound healing, hypogonadism, delayed sexual maturation and impaired immune response. Zinc status seems to be regulated by strong homeostatic control of both absorption and excretion (reviewed in Whittaker, 1998). Zinc is more efficiently absorbed in small amounts than in large amounts, and individuals with poor zinc status absorb zinc more efficiently than those with normal status. The lack of a suitable index for measuring body zinc status has led to uncertainties in establishing recommended dietary allowances. Decreased zinc absorption because of dietary fibre and phytates leads to zinc deficiency in children in rural areas of Iran and Egypt, and zinc supplementation leads to improved growth (Prasad, 1990). Several Third World countries are taking measures to increase dietary intake of iron and zinc with fortification of foods or dietary supplements. While several studies...

Nutritional Therapy During Convalescence After Infection

Perhaps the most poorly studied aspect of nutritional therapy is its use after a serious illness. Data from surgical patients suggest that the nutritional demands of the elderly remain during the period of convalescence with weight loss continuing for up to 8 wk after hospital discharge. Few studies of sufficient power and appropriate design have been performed in the elderly that examine the influence of nutritional supplements on the risk of infectious diseases following other serious illness. Community-acquired pneumonia (CAP) is a common serious illness in the elderly and a recent study from Spain (50) suggests that up to 85 of elderly patients with CAP are malnourished at the time of admission (vs 53 of age gender-matched controls admitted for other reasons in that study). Woo and co-workers (51) studied the effects of nutritional supplementation during convalescence from CAP in a group of elderly patients in Hong Kong. Most of these patients were not institutionalized but lived...

Parentral Nutrition And Organic Acidaemia

Adequate energy intake from nonprotein sources is essential to provide for growth and minimize tissue cata-bolism that can lead to poorer metabolic control. Table foods such as fruits, vegetables, and limited grain products are supplemented with concentrated sweets and fats to provide adequate calories. Use of special low protein foods (pasta, breads, baked products) helps provide additional energy and variety in the diet without significantly increasing protein intake. Inadequate caloric intake may result from diet restrictions that severely limit food choices, unpleasant taste of medical foods containing L-amino acids, and poor appetite.

Herbal Medicines

Some issues have arisen with the increased use of herbals, including questions about their purity, safety, concentration, and efficacy. Another issue is drug interactions. Health care providers should ask about the use of herbal remedies when taking a patient's drug history, and patients should report any herbal medicines they take when under treatment. The FDA does not test or regulate herbal medicines, and there are no requirements to report adverse effects. There are, however, restrictions on the health claims that can be made by the manufacturers of herbal medicines. The U.S. government has established the Office of Dietary Supplements (ODS) to support and coordinate research in this field.

Herbal Alert Kava

Kava is a popular herbal remedy used to relieve stress, anxiety, and tension promote sleep and provide relief from menstrual symptoms. Although the FDA has not made a determination about the ability of kava dietary supplements to provide such benefits, it has issued an alert indicating that the use of kava may cause liver damage. Because kava-containingproducts have been associated with liver-related injuries (eg, hepatitis, cirrhosis, and liver failure), the safest use of kava is to take the herb occasionally for episodes of anxiety, rather than on a daily basis. It is important that individuals who use a kava-containing dietary supplement and experience signs of liver disease immediately consult their primary health care provider. Symptoms of liver disease includejaundice, urine with a brownish discoloration, nausea, vomiting, light-colored stools, weakness, and loss of appetite. Adverse effects experienced with the use of dietary supplements should be reported to the FDA's MedWatch...

Defensive Mutualism

Although these examples demonstrate the evolution of structures and secretions that reflect mutual associations between plants and animals, other interactions are not so self-supportive. Plant-eating animals, called herbivores, have always been able to consume large quantities of green plants with little fear of reprisal. Yet, some types of carnivorous plants have evolved that capture and digest small insects and crustaceans as nutritional supplements to their normal photo-synthetic activities. Many of these plants grow abundantly in marshlike environments, such as bogs and swamps, where many insects congregate to reproduce. Such well-known plants as the Venus's-flytrap, sundews, butterworts, and pitcher plants have modified stems and leaves to capture and consume insects and spiders rich in protein. On a smaller scale, in freshwater ponds and lakes, a submerged green plant commonly known as the bladderwort partially satisfies its protein requirements by snaring and digesting small...

Kevin P High

Nutritional factors have been suggested to mediate, at least in part, the immune dysfunction and increased risk of infection common in older adults (1,2). A variety of nutrients directly and indirectly influence immune function and presumably infection risk (see Fig. 1 from ref. 3 ). However, few nutritional interventions have as yet shown clear clinical benefits. This chapter examines the prevalence, clinical manifestations, and diagnosis of malnutrition in elderly adults and summarizes the currently available data regarding the role of nutritional supplements in the prevention or treatment of infectious diseases in the elderly.

Case Study

Several months after the accident, D.S. was still experiencing some discomfort, and she decided to investigate alternative therapies. She made an appointment with a naturist practitioner who specialized in homeopathy and herbal medicine. Before her appointment, she browsed in the Nutra-Medica Shop, which carried nutritional supplements, vitamin and mineral products, homeopathic remedies, and herbal formulas. She planned to ask the therapist about some of the products that she saw there, which included remedies with the trade names Pneumogen, Arthogesia-Plus, Renovite, Nephrostat, and Hematone.

Phytooestrogens

The main food source of isoflavonoids is the soya bean (Glycine max Legumi-nosae Fabaceae) (see also page 256), which contains significant levels of the isoflavones daidzein, and genistein (Figure 4.47), in free form and as their 7-O-glucosides. Total isoflavone levels fall in the range 0.1-0.4 , according to variety. Soya products such as soya milk, soya flour, tofu, and soya-based textured vegetable protein may all be used in the diet for their isoflavonoid content. Breads in which wheat flour is replaced by soya flour are also popular. Extracts from red clover (Trifolium pratense Leguminosae Fabaceae) are also used as a dietary supplement. Red clover isoflavones are predominantly formononetin (Figure 4.48) and daidzein, together with their 7-O-glucosides.

Review Questions

If your patient with parkinsonism is taking levodopa, he must be careful to avoid vitamin B6 (pyridoxine) because it may interfere with the therapeutic effects of the drug. Most multivitamin supplements contain vitamin B6. Therefore, be sure to instruct your patient to check with his health care provider before taking any vitamin supplements.
