HEALTH TIP
Exercise Excuse No. 1: 'I Don't Have Time

"How much television do you watch?" asks Walter Thompson, PhD, professor of kinesiology and health at Georgia State University.

During your shows, use resistance bands for strength training, or walk in place. You could also record your shows and watch them later, skipping the ads; use that time to exercise.  

If you don't have a long stretch of time, you could break up your workout into shorter sessions. Some activity is better than none. "We find time for things we value," says James Hill, PhD, co-founder of the National Weight Control Registry."

TESTIMONIAL

Here is a typical testimonial on the benefits of chelation. It was sent quite awhile ago, but those benefits are still happening to this day.

 

"Last August we sent for your cassette tape about heart disease, which we both listened to, and we were very excited about the possibilities that you had recommended. I have been a heart patient since I was in my early 30's.  I had just had a stress test, and my cardiologist recommended that I have a heart catheterization.  

 

My husband, Al said let's try Karl's program, which we did for 3 months, from August 1, 1994 to November 1, 1994.

 

I began to feel much better within two weeks, needless to say we were very happy, but that is not all.  

 

My cardiologist wanted another stress test done, which I again went through, a more extensive one with dye also put into my veins, the name is a Stress Thulium.

 

Well, thanks to your formula, which I follow faithfully, the test showed that I no longer needed the heart catheterization.

Blood In the Stool

Part 3

Hemorrhoids are enlarged raised veins in the anus or rectum. Common hemorrhoids are often linked to both diarrhea (1) and constipation.

Although the belief that hemorrhoids are caused by constipation has been questioned by researchers,(2) most doctors feel that many hemorrhoids are triggered by the straining that accompanies chronic constipation.(3) Therefore, natural approaches to hemorrhoids sometimes focus on overcoming constipation.

for Hemorrhoids

Reliable and relatively consistent scientific data showing a substantial health benefit.



Contradictory, insufficient, or preliminary studies suggesting a health benefit or minimal health benefit.

 



An herb is primarily supported by traditional use, or the herb or supplement has little scientific support and/or minimal health benefit.

 


What are the symptoms of hemorrhoids? Symptoms of hemorrhoids may include painful swelling or a lump in the anus that can bleed and become inflamed, often causing discomfort and itching. There may also be bright red blood on the toilet paper, the stool, or in the toilet bowl.

 

Conventional treatment options: Conventional treatment includes the use of rectal suppositories, stool softeners, topical preparations (Anusol�, Preparation H�, Hemorid�), and medicated wipes (Tucks�). Surgical treatment may be recommended for hemorrhoids that become very enlarged, protrude from the anus (prolapse), bleed frequently, or contain blood clots (thrombosis). 

 

Common procedures include freezing the affected tissue (cryotherapy), injecting chemicals into the hemorrhoid to shrink it (sclerosing solutions), surgically removing the hemorrhoid (hemorrhoidectomy), or placing rubber bands around the hemorrhoid for removal (ligation).

 

Dietary changes that may be helpful: Populations in which fiber intake is high have a very low incidence of hemorrhoids. Insoluble fiber-the kind found primarily in whole grains and vegetables-increases the bulk of stool. Drinking water with a high-fiber meal or a fiber supplement results in softer, bulkier stools, which can move more easily. 

 

As a result, most doctors believe that fiber in combination with increased intake of liquids helps to treat people with hemorrhoids. Nonetheless, few clinical trials compare the effects of fiber supplementation against the effects of placebo in hemorrhoid sufferers.

 

Nutritional supplements that may be helpful: A number of flavonoids have been shown to have anti-inflammatory effects and/or to strengthen blood vessels. These effects could, in theory, be beneficial for people with hemorrhoids. 

 

Most,(4 5 6 7) but not all,(8) double-blind trials using a group of semisynthetic flavonoids (hydroxyethylrutosides derived from rutin) have demonstrated significant improvements in itching, bleeding, and other symptoms associated with hemorrhoids when people used supplements of 600-4,000 mg per day.

 

Other trials have evaluated Daflon, a product containing the food-derived flavonoids diosmin (90%) and hesperidin (10%). An uncontrolled trial reported that Daflon produced symptom relief in two-thirds of pregnant women with hemorrhoids.(9) Double-blind trials have produced conflicting results about the effects of Daflon in people with hemorrhoids.(10 11) Amounts of flavonoids used in Daflon trials ranged from 1,000 to 3,000 mg per day. Diosmin and hesperidin are available separately as dietary supplements.

 

Some doctors recommend flavonoid supplements for people with hemorrhoids. However, many different flavonoids occur in food and supplements, and additional research is needed to determine which flavonoids are most effective against hemorrhoids.

 

Are there any side effects or interactions? Refer to the individual supplement for information about any side effects or interactions.

 

Herbs that may be helpful: Constipation is believed to worsen hemorrhoid symptoms, and thus, bulk-forming fibers are often recommended for those with hemorrhoids. A double-blind trial reported that 7 grams of psyllium, an herb high in fiber, taken three times daily reduced the pain and bleeding associated with hemorrhoids.(12)

 

Some healthcare professionals recommend taking two tablespoons of psyllium seeds or 1 teaspoon of psyllium husks two or three times per day mixed with water or juice. It is important to maintain adequate fluid intake while using psyllium.

 

Topically applied astringent herbs have been used traditionally as a treatment for hemorrhoids. A leading astringent herb for topical use is witch hazel,(13) which is typically applied to hemorrhoids three or four times per day in an ointment base.

 

Horse chestnut extracts have been reported from a double-blind trial to reduce symptoms of hemorrhoids.(14) Some doctors recommend taking horse chestnut seed extracts standardized for aescin (also known as escin) content (16-21%), or an isolated aescin preparation, providing 90 to 150 mg of aescin per day.

 

Are there any side effects or interactions? Refer to the individual herb for information about any side effects or interactions.
