Complementary and alternative therapies in the aging population by Ronald Watson( Book )

15 editions published between 2008 and 2011 in English and held by 183 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The major objective of this book is to review in detail health problems occurring with significant frequency in aging adults which are proposed to be treated or ameliorated using nutriceuticals as foods and dietary supplements as well as other complementary and alternative therapies. Chapters primarily focusing on nutrients have been excluded to maintain a focus on complementary and alternative medicine (CAM). Overview of the Book: The book is divided into three general sections as follows: I. Nutriceuticals and Botanicals in Health Promotion; (A) Specific Nutriceuticals Used in Treating Aged, (B) General Nutraceutical Approaches to Therapy with emphasis on cancer. II. Non-nutritional CAM Therapies. (A) Mind-mediated Therapies, (B) Physically Applied CAM Therapies. I. Non-Nutritional Components in Diet and Supplements, Nutriceuticals and their Role in Health Promotion in the Mature Adult. Nutrient requirements for optimum health and function of aging physiological systems often are quite distinct from young ones. Nutriceuticals, without nutrients as foods or dietary supplements benefit the aged by both protecting nutrients from oxidative damage as well as through their direct biological activity. Recognition and understanding of the role of CAM nutriceuticals in health of the aged is being intensively researched and tested, especially due to the increases in the elderly in the general population. In developed countries, economic restrictions and physical inactivity during aging can significantly reduce food intakes, contributing to nutritional stresses and needs. Many disease entities and cancers are found with higher frequency in the aged. Cancer, trauma, or infectious disease can alter intakes of nutriceutical containing foods and/or requirements for various nutrients. Nutriceuticals, especially those of botanical origins have thousands of biologically active chemicals. Thus specific foods and nutriceutical supplementation may be helpful in treatment of aged adults including cancer patients. Many adults and elderly are using foods and nutriceutical supplements above the recommended daily allowance, which may not always be needed for optimal health. To some extent, treatment of these conditions with diet or nutriceutical supplements is a unique problem in the aged. In summary, increasing numbers of older adults and elderly in the population require detailed study and directed research to understand their health problems, using novel nutriceutical and CAM therapies. II. Nutriceuticals in Disease and Cancer Therapy in Seniors.Research continues to show that non-nutritional materials in the diet or as supplements can have important health promotion benefits. Those that are antioxidants act, in part, by protecting antioxidant vitamins. However much needs to be learned about benefits and risks of nutriceuticals which have a variety of biological activities in their own right. Therefore botanical extracts and components will be reviewed for their benefits to seniors. III. Non-dietary Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) Use and Benefits to the Elderly in Health. The elderly are frequently using various non-traditional and often unproven CAM therapies, beyond nutritional and nutraceutical supplements. Therefore a variety of physical and psychosocial treatments will be evaluated by experts in CAM research for their benefits/risks and the extent of scientific testing. Identifies the important nutritional requirements of the aging population, and how nutraceuticals and other CAM options affect those. Addresses the many disease entities and cancers are found with higher frequency in the aged, including cancer, trauma, or infectious disease that can alter intakes of nutraceutical containing foods and/or requirements for various nutrients. Explores the nutritional materials botanical extracts and components that can have important health promotion benefits and risks, to ensure safe consumption. Reviews the frequently used non-traditional and often unproven CAM therapies, beyond nutritional and nutraceutical supplements, including a variety of physical and psychosocial treatments
Alcohol and heart disease by Adam K Myers( Book )

6 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 165 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Increasing evidence supports a clear role for high alcohol intake in the cause of major heart disease. However, it has been discovered that specific constituents of some alcoholic beverages, which are also present in fruit and vegetables, may reduce the risk of certain types of heart pathology in humans when these beverages are consumed in moderate amounts. One of these constituents is ethanol itself, which may have some beneficial actions at low levels of consumption. Alcohol and Heart Disease investigates the effects of alcoholic beverage intake on human cardiac function, focusing on the pathological effects of high alcohol consumption as well as the potential benefits of moderate use. The authors examine the many interactions of alcohol intake on cardiac cell function, cardiac lipids, stroke, cocaine use and AIDS. The contributors, who include many experts in the field, use evidence from animal models, epidemiological studies and medical reports to help define both the problem and consequences of alcohol consumption on the human heart
Flour and breads and their fortification in health and disease prevention by Victor R Preedy( Book )

22 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 160 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bread and flour-based foods are an important part of the diet for millions of people worldwide. Their complex nature provides energy, protein, minerals and many other macro- and micronutrients. However, consideration must be taken of three major aspects related to flour and bread. The first is that not all cultures consume bread made from wheat flour. There are literally dozens of flour types, each with their distinctive heritage, cultural roles and nutritive contents. Secondly, not all flours are used to make leavened bread in the traditional (i.e., Western) loaf form. There are many different ways that flours are used in the production of staple foods. Thirdly, flour and breads provide a suitable means for fortification: either to add components that are removed in the milling and purification process or to add components that will increase palatability or promote health and reduce disease per se. Flour and Breads their Fortification in Health and Disease Prevention provides a single-volume reference to the healthful benefits of a variety of flours and flour products, and guides the reader in identifying options and opportunities for improving health through flour and fortified flour products. Examines those four and break related agents that affect metabolism and other health-related conditions. Explores the impact of compositional differences between flours, including differences based on country of origin and processing technique. Includes methods for analysis of flours and bread-related compounds in other foods
Olives and olive oil in health and disease prevention by Victor R Preedy( Book )

16 editions published in 2010 in English and Spanish and held by 132 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Long used in sacred ceremonies and associated with good health, the nutritional and health promoting benefits of olives and olive oils have been proven by an ever-increasing body of science. From cardiovascular benefits to anti-microbial, anti-cancer, antioxidant activity and effects on macrophages and aptoptosis to cellular and pathophysiollogical process, olives and olive oils are proving important in many healthful ways. For example, reactive components in olive oils or olive oil by-products have now been isolated and identified. These include tyrosol, hydroxytyrosol, 3,4-dihydroxyphenyl acetic acid elenolic acid and oleuropein. Oleic acid is the main monosaturated fatty acid of olive oil. These have putative protective effects and modulate the biochemistry of a variety of cell types including those of the vascular system. Some but not all components have been characterised by their putative pharmacological properties. It is possible that usage of these aforementioned products may have beneficial application in other disease. However, in order for this cross-fertilization to take place, a comprehensive understanding of olives and olive oils is required. Finding this knowledge in a single volume provides a key resource for scientists in a variety of food an nutritional roles. Key Features: * Explores olives and olive oil from their general aspects to the detailed level of important micro-and micronutrients * Includes coverage of various methodologies for analysis to help scientists and chemists determine the most appropriate option for their own studies, including those of olive-related compounds in other foods * Relates, in a single volume resource, information for food and nutritional chemists, pharmaceutical scientists, nutritionists and dieticians * Presents information in three key categories: General aspects of olives an olive oils; Nutritional, pharmacological and metabolic properties of olives and olive oil; Specific components of olive oil and their effects on tissue and body systems
Wild-type food in health promotion and disease prevention : the Columbus concept by Ronald R Watson( Book )

17 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 124 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"It is essential to force a U-turn in the way contemporary medicine approaches ill-health diseases. Early prevention of primary risk factors is a far more promising approach compared to late acute treatment of secondary risk factors in reducing the cost burden of Public Health, not mentioning the expected benefits of the former versus the latter approaches with regards to the Quality of Life. Wild-Type Food in Health Promotion and Disease Prevention: The Columbus Concept is one of the first books to focus on the role of omega-6/3 polyunsaturated fatty acids in unhealthy diets. The volume is divided into five sections. The first identifies the missing essential ratio of competing essential fatty acids in the human diet and relates them to the upsurge of modern chronic disease and associated health costs. The authors also explain the scientific basis of the Columbus Concept and the evidence supporting the rehabilitation of dietary/blood cholesterol. In the second section, authors discuss the essential ingredients in a daily diet that make blood vessels healthy and resistant. The third section introduces the functional part of the diet that brings about health benefits and healthy blood vessels. The fourth section details the health benefits of wild-type foods in various cultures. The final section investigates the possibility for novel sources for health promotion. Wild-Type Food in Health Promotion and Disease Prevention: The Columbus Concept presents a cutting-edge, in-depth investigation into new methods of health promotion."--Product description (

Handbook of behavior, food and nutrition by Victor R Preedy( Book )

9 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this book the editors aim to disseminate important data pertaining to the modulatory effects of foods and nutritional substances on behavior and neurological pathways and visa versa. This ranges from the neuroendocrine control of feeding to the effects of disease on the brain. The importance of this book pertains to the fact that food is an essential component of cultural heritage but the effects of perturbations in the food-cognitive axis can be quite profound. The complex inter-relationship between neuropsychological processing, diet and beharioural outcome is explored within the context of the most contemporary psychobiological research in the area. This comprehensive psychobiologically and pathology-themed text examines the broad spectrum of diet, behavioural and neuropsychological interactions from normative function to occurrences of severe and enduring psychopathology. The editors have taken a scientific and objective stand and included chapters that scrutinize the relationships between the brain, behaviour, food and nutrition in a scientific and rational way"--Preface
