INTRODUCTIONBack to top

uric_acid_crystalsAn ancient disease, gout is a chronic type of inflammatory arthritis that causes immediate attacks of pain, tenderness, redness, warmth and swelling in some joints. Usually the joints in the big toe are affected, but gout can also affect the instep, ankles, heels, knees, wrists, fingers and elbows. Once believed to be the result of gluttony, gout is now known to affect people from all walks of life and often the disease is inherited. Less than one in ten women will develop gout. About 500,000 people have gout in the United States, with most being men between the ages of 30 and 60. Gout accounts for about 5 percent of all cases of arthritis.

CAUSES OF GOUT

Gout is caused when there is over production of uric acid in normal purine metabolism in the body. Genetics can play a role in who develops gout. It can also occur as a complication of other conditions. Some people inherit the inability to process uric acid and lose it in the urine. High blood levels of uric acid in turn causes sodium monourate crystals to collect in the joint fluid and joint coverings leading to gout, a painful stiff swollen joint. There are many reasons why an episode of Gout will appear including drinking too much alcohol or eating certain kinds of food rich in purines such as seafood, beans, sweetbreads, gravies and anchovies.

Other potential triggers of gout include:

  • Surgery
  • Stress
  • Crash diets
  • Sudden, severe illness
  • Chemotherapy
  • Joint injury
  • High blood pressure
  • Excessive exercise

Lumps (tophi) may be found under the skin around the elbows, heels or ears. The uric acid crystals cause these lumps and can also cause kidney stones to develop.lumps

A few people will only experience one gout attack. However, for most people, the gout attacks will keep coming back every few months and will be worse in intensity. If the disease is left untreated, it may result in crippling damage to the joints. Gout is easily identified through a physical examination and diagnostic tests. Your doctor will take a sample of the joint fluid and look for the presence of uric acid crystals. He or she may also take a blood test to measure the amount of uric acid in your body.

TREATMENT OF GOUT

Through the use of certain kinds of medications, a proper diet and exercise, gout sufferers will be able to successfully treat their condition. Uric acid levels in the body can be controlled through medications, thus reducing the number of gout attacks. Doctors will usually prescribe a medication called Allopurinol that stops the over production of uric acid. If the kidneys are not excreting enough uric acid, your doctor may prescribe a different kind of medication such as Probenecid or Sulfinpyrazone.

colchicineDoctors have been using a drug called Colchicine for centuries to treat gout attacks. Colchicine relieves pain while limiting the inflammation of the joint. Often the drug provides relief quickly but there are some side effects such as nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. Nonsalicylate NSAIDS (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) such as ibuprofen may be used for pain relief. Aspirin should not be used because it can actually make symptoms of gout worse. Talk to your doctor or nutritionist about starting a proper diet.

There are certain foods that you should stay away from and be sure to limit your alcohol intake as wine and beer have been shown to make symptom worse. A combination of exercise, rest and relaxation is important in achieving an optimum level of health and wellness. Your doctor or physical therapist will help you create an exercise plan such as swimming or walking that will help you maintain a healthy lifestyle.

YUCCA HERB POWDER

yucca_herb_powderThe yucca plant grows primarily in the south-western deserts of the United States, and has a long history of medicinal and practical use among Native Americans.
Although there are several species of this plant, it is easily identified by its long, spiky leaves, which resemble those of the aloe plant. Yucca has been used to treat a wide variety of conditions that cause pain and inflammation, including premenstrual syndrome, arthritis, and chronic headache. It has also traditionally been used to treat skin conditions, such as skin cancer, and to promote the healing of wounds. There are many different species of yucca plant, and not all of them have been the subjects of clinical testing. However, researchers have isolated and studied yucca saponins, the active phytochemical in all yucca plants. In one study this extract helped relieve joint pain and stiffness for about half of the participants, all of which suffered from arthritis. Other studies indicate that certain species of yucca may help reduce headache pain and promote cardiovascular health by improving circulation and lowering blood pressure, cholesterol, and triglyceride levels.

GARLIC EXTRACT POWDER

garlic_extract_powderMedical studies have shown that garlic, the aromatic seasoning people either love or hate, can lower cholesterol, prevent dangerous blood clots, reduce blood pressure, prevent cancer, and protect against bacterial and fungal infections. Just what makes garlic so good? Known scientifically as Allium sativum, garlic contains more than 100 biologically useful chemicals, including substances with such strange names as alliin, alliinase, allicin S-allylcysteine, diallyl sulfide, allyl methyl trisulfide. In fact, garlic has been used medicinally for at least 3,000 years, but until relatively recently its benefits were considered little more than folklore. According to a report in the Journal of the American Medical Association (Nov. 28, 1990;264:2614), the therapeutic roles of garlic have been described in more than 1,000 scientific studies.

GARLIC BENEFITS THE CARDIOVASCULAR SYSTEM

Adesh K. Jain, M.D., of the Clinical Research Center and Tulane University School of Medicine, New Orleans, reported last year that garlic can lower blood levels of “total” cholesterol and, particularly, of the dangerous low-density lipoprotein (LDL) form. Jain gave 20 men and women 900 milligrams of garlic powder tablets daily and compared them to 22 people getting just a placebo. By the end of the 12-week study, total blood cholesterol levels dropped by an average of 6 percent among those taking the garlic tablets, compared with only a 1 percent drop among those taking a placebo. The garlic takers also benefited from an 11 percent decrease in the LDL form of cholesterol, compared with a 3 percent reduction in the placebo group.

“Garlic powder, given in the form of tablets in our study, was well tolerated and only one subject reported increased belching and a garlic odor,” explained Jain in the American Journal of Medicine (June 1994;94:632-5). Garlic is also an anticoagulant – a natural blood thinner. H. Kieswetter, M.D., of the University of Saarlandes, Hamburg, Germany, recently found that garlic could help patients suffering from peripheral arterial occlusive disease, characterized by blood clots in the legs. Typically, patients with the condition are asked to walk, because increased blood flow reduces the number of clots. However, they are easily discouraged because peripheral arterial occlusive disease causes extreme pain after walking only a short distance.

Kieswetter gave 32 patients 800 milligrams of garlic powder tablets daily for 12 weeks, while another 32 patients received a placebo. He then measured their “pain-free walking distance”. For the first several weeks, both groups of patients progressed about as they would in a typical walking program. As time went on however, patients taking garlic were able to walk about one-third farther without pain, according to Kieswetter’s report in Clinical Investigator (May 1993;71:383-6). The researcher also noted that garlic’s benefits, which included decreased blood pressure, could be detected after patients took a single garlic powder capsule.

Why does garlic lower blood pressure? Blood pressure increases in response to the body’s production of angiotensen I-converting enzyme (ACE). Some prescription blood pressure drugs work as “ACE inhibitors,” blocking formation of the chemical. Garlic contains gamma-glutamylcysteine, a natural ACE inhibitor, according to an article in Planta Medica (Sendl, A. Feb. 1992;58:1-7).

GARLIC PROTECTS AGAINST CANCER

Garlic also protects against cancer. Benjamin Lau, M.D., Ph.D., noted in Molecular Biotherapy (June 1991;3:103-7), that garlic “is one of the most ancient of plants reputed to have an anticancer effect”. As recorded around 1550 B.C., in the Ebers Papyrus, garlic was used externally for the treatment of tumors by ancient Egyptians and internally by Hippocrates and Indian physicians.

Lau, a researcher at the Loma Linda University School of Medicine, has identified three ways garlic protects against cancer: by directly inhibiting tumor cell metabolism, by preventing the initiation and repro-duction of cancer cells, and by boosting a person’s immune system to more efficiently fight cancer cells. John Milner, Ph.D., of Pennsylvania State University, University Park, recently studied how aged garlic powder might protect against nitrosamine-induced cancers in laboratory mice. Nitrosamines are formed when processed meats, such as bacon and bologna are eaten. Milner found that a diet consisting of 2 to 4 percent garlic delayed the growth of breast cancer and reduced the number of tumors. “The total tumor number was reduced by 56% in rats fed the 2% garlic powder diet throughout the 20 weeks feeding period compared to control-fed rats,” he explained in Carcinogenesis (Oct. 1992;13:1847-51).

Another benefit was that levels of glutathione-S-transferase were 42 percent higher among the animals eating high-garlic diets. Glutathione-S-transferase is an enzyme that helps the liver to detoxify carcinogens and other dangerous chemicals. In a separate study, Milner found that garlic could dramatically reduce the number of “adducts” in deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA). Adducts are chemicals that attach nitrosamines to DNA, setting the stage for cancerous changes.

Milner exposed a group of laboratory rats to nitrosamines, but some of the animals were also given large amounts of aged garlic powder, again, 2 to 4 percent of the diet. Depending on the amount of garlic they ate, the rats had a 40 to 80 percent reduction in the adducts in the liver. In addition, garlic-eating rats benefited from 55 to 69 percent fewer mammary gland adducts, according to Milner’s article in Carcinogenesis (Feb. 1994;15:349-52). Several studies have also shown that garlic reduces the risk of stomach cancer. One study, conducted in China, found that garlic consumption was inversely related to the incidence of stomach cancer, according to a report in Preventive Medicine (Han, J., Sept. 1993;22:712-22).

Other experiments, such as the one described in Cancer Letters (Nagabhushan, M., Oct. 21, 1992;66:207-16), noted that diallyl sulfide significantly reduced stomach tumors in hamsters. In another experiment, Professor M. M. El-Mofty of Alexandria University, Egypt, fed Egyptian toads either freshly minced garlic, garlic oil, or corn oil (placebo) for four months, and then exposed them to aflatoxin B1 (AFB1), a food contaminant that can cause liver cancer. Only 3 percent of the toads fed fresh garlic and only 9 percent of the 65 animals fed garlic oil developed tumors. In contrast, 19 percent of those fed corn oil developed liver and kidney tumors.

“Our results show that feeding toads minced garlic or garlic oil resulted in a marked reduction in the incidence of tumors induced by AFB1,” El-Mofty wrote in Nutrition and Cancer, 1994;21:95-100). “The fresh garlic showed a greater inhibitory effect…This suggests that there are additional highly active components in fresh garlic”.

FIGHTS MICROBIAL AND FUNGAL INFECTIONS

garlicScientific research has also confirmed garlic’s role as a natural antibiotic. Back in 1983, Lau noted in Medical Hypotheses (12:227-37) that “Garlic extract has broad-spectrum antimicrobial activity against many genera of bacteria and fungi…because many of the micro-organisms susceptible to garlic extract are medically significant, garlic holds a promising position as a broad-spectrum therapeutic agent.

“One way garlic works is by promoting phagocytosis, the ability of white blood cells to fight infections. Another is by stimulating other immune cells, such as macro-phages and T-cells to fight bacterial and viral infections and to scavenge for cancer cells. One report, in Deutsche Zeitschrift für Onkologie (April 1989;21:52-3), described how garlic enhanced the body’s “killer cell” activity against the AIDS virus. Lau has also noted that garlic can combat Candida infections. In one study, he injected an aged garlic extract into mice with Candida infections. After a day, the Candida colonies numbered 400, compared with 3,500 among the mice given only a salt-water solution. After two days, the garlic-treated mice were free of Candida.

ACTIVE INGREDIENTSBack to top

In one of the great ironies of nature, raw garlic has very little biological activity. But when you “damage” garlic cloves – by slicing, cooking, or chewing – the enzyme alliinase immediately converts alliin into allicin, which gives garlic its characteristic odor. Allicin was once thought to be garlic’s principal active ingredient. However, researchers now know that allicin is rapidly oxidized.

More than 100 biologically active sulfur-containing compounds, proteins, and saponins are created as a result of this oxidation.While allicin may still serve as a general marker of garlic’s potency, research increasingly points to S-allylcysteine and other compounds as the most therapeutically active ingredients in garlic. So how should you take garlic? Most scientific studies have, for consistency, used a standardized garlic extract in capsule or liquid form. However, just about any form offers some benefits. If you enjoy the taste of garlic, use it liberally in your food. If the taste and odor turn you off, opt for deodorized garlic capsules. Either way, garlic is good for your health.

ARTICHOKE EXTRACT

AlcachofraAlcachofra is the Brazilian name for Globe Artichoke. It belongs to the Milk Thistle family and grows to a height of about two meters, producing large violet-green flower heads. The flower petals and fleshy flower bottoms are eaten as a vegetable throughout the world, which has led to its commercial cultivation in many parts of South and North America as well as Europe. It is from a similarity in the flavor of the tuber in the Jerusalem artichoke to that of the fleshy base of the artichoke flower, that the Jerusalem artichoke has obtained its name The plant has been employed therapeutically in the treatment of elevated lipid levels, although with mixed results. For example, a study done in the late 1970’s using cynarin at the 250mg to 750mg daily dose concluded that it did not alter cholesterol or triglyceride levels in patients with familial high cholesterol after 3 months of therapy. In contrast, however, a recent European study suggests that artichoke is efficacious in altering lipid values. After using a standardized artichoke extract (320mg/capsule) at a dose of 1 – 2 capsules 2 – 3 times a day for 6 weeks, total cholesterol and triglyceride values decreased by an average of 12.78% and 8.79% respectively. HDL cholesterol levels did not rise significantly. In other studies, tests have shown artichoke extract to increase liver bile flow by more than 100%. Artichoke leaf extract is made from the long, serrated basal leaves of the plant in which is found the highest concentration of biologically active compounds. These compounds have demonstrated antioxidant action and the ability to maintain healthy digestion and liver function by promoting adequate bile flow. Bile serves as a major carrier of cholesterol and detoxified substances for excretion from the body.

MILK THISTLE EXTRACT

milk_thistleMilk thistle has been reported to have protective effects on the liver and to improve its function. It is typically used to treat liver cirrhosis, chronic hepatitis (liver inflammation), and gallbladder disorders. The active compound in Milk thistle is silymarin, a mixture of at least 4 closely related flavonolignans, 60% to 70% of which is a mixture of 2 diastereomers of silybin. Silymarin is typically administered in amount ranging from 200-500mg per day. Whether or not these dosages are optimal is not known; no scientific data on which to base effective dosage level guidelines is available. Research into the biological activity of silymarin and its possible medical uses has been conducted in many countries since the 1970s, but the quality of the research has been uneven. Reviews of the literature covering clinical studies of silymarin vary in their conclusions. A review using only studies with both double-blind and placebo protocols concluded that milk thistle and its derivatives “does not seem to significantly influence the course of patients with alcoholic and/or hepatitis B or C liver diseases.” A different review of the literature, performed for the U. S. Department of Health and Human Services, found that, while there is strong evidence of legitimate medical benefits, the studies done to date are of such uneven design and quality that no firm conclusions about degrees of effectiveness for specific conditions or appropriate dosage can yet be made. A review of studies of silymarin and liver disease which are available on the web shows an interesting pattern: studies which tested low dosages of silymarin concluded that silymarin was ineffective while studies which used significantly larger doses concluded that silymarin was biologically active and had therapeutic effects.

Beside benefits for liver disease, treatment claims include:

  • Lowering cholesterol levels
  • Reducing insulin resistance in people with type 2 diabetes who also have cirrhosis
  • Reducing the growth of cancer cells in breast, cervical, and prostate cancers.
  • Milk thistle is also used in many products claiming to reduce the effects of a hangover.

TUMERIC POWDERBack to top

tumeric_powderTurmeric is an herb (Curcuma longa), native to South India and Indonesia. Its tuberous rhizomes have been used from antiquity as a condiment, as a textile dye, and medically as an aromatic stimulant. Turmeric powder is a common ingredient in Indian food and yellow mustard. You can buy Turmeric supplement on sale at Physician Formulas. Curcumin, the substance that gives the spice turmeric powder its yellow color may help fight cancer, preliminary evidence suggests. Researchers have found in the lab that the active ingredient in turmeric, called curcumin, can enhance the cancer-fighting power of treatment with TRAIL, a naturally occurring molecule that helps kill cancer cells. TRAIL stands for tumor necrosis factor-related apoptosis-inducing ligand. In an experiment with human prostate cancer cells in a laboratory dish, the combination treatment killed off two to three times more cells than either treatment alone. Use of turmeric powder extract may help suppress multiple myeloma, a blood cancer, early lab research shows–suggesting yet another health benefit from this long-heralded substance. Adding Curcumin to human cells with the blood cancer multiple myeloma, Dr. Bharat B. Aggarwal of the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston and his colleagues found that it stopped the cells from replicating. And the cells that were left died. Although the study did not test the benefits of curcumin in patients, previous research has shown the substance may fight other types of cancers.

SIDE EFFECTS OF TUMERIC HERB

As of October 2007, no major side effect of turmeric herb have been reported in the medical literature.

Turmeric for arthritis
Turmeric, may, in some ways, work similarly to Cox-2 inhibitors, drugs that reduce the Cox-2 enzyme that causes the pain and swelling of arthritis.
