Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

One major example of the synergy of bioactive foods and extracts is their role as an antioxidant and the related remediation of cardiovascular disease. There is compelling evidence to suggest that oxidative stress is implicated in the physiology of several major cardiovascular diseases including heart failure and increased free radical formation and reduced antioxidant defences. Studies indicate bioactive foods reduce the incidence of these conditions, suggestive of a potential cardioprotective role of antioxidant nutrients. Bioactive Food as Dietary Interventions for Cardiovascular Disease investigates the role of foods, herbs and novel extracts in moderating the pathology leading to cardiovascular disease. It reviews existing literature, and presents new hypotheses and conclusions on the effects of different bioactive components of the diet. Addresses the most positive results from dietary interventions using bioactive foods to impact cardiovascular disease Documents foods that can affect metabolic syndrome and other related conditions Convenient, efficient and effective source that allows readers to identify potential uses of compounds - or indicate those compounds whose use may be of little or no health benefit Associated information can be used to understand other diseases that share common etiological pathways

Potential Of Ras  H  Ra And Yoga In Treatment Of Pre Diabetes   A Controlled Trial

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Food which is pre-digested and full of vitamins and minerals of all kinds should be taken to full-fill all bodily requirements. Such food is safe to eat even when blood sugar levels are increased. Food substances should be selected for easy digestion, so that the digestive system works less as for progress on the spiritual path. This thesis hypothesized that swarasa (freshly prepared herbal juices) taken as a food supplement to replace breakfast has more therapeutic value than traditional breakfast, and are therefore to be preferred. Many Āyurveda texts like Yoga Ratnākara, describe the subtle therapeutic importance of swarasa as well as whole herbs. This study discusses forms in which herbs should be taken, Guṇas of herbs and their food supplements, effects on the body, and quantities appropriate for best nutrition. Their many health benefits make raw foods like fresh fruits and vegetables, herbs, grains, nuts, and sprouted grains, with more vitamins and minerals than cooked foods. Important dietary components. All are healthy additions to a regular diet providing missing nutrients; nor do they deposit or develop disease-generating Āma (toxins). Many studies have investigated food-related ingredients, such herbs to reduce sugar levels, for newly detected Type 2 Diabetes mellitus. Others show how meal time relates to weight loss. Some show that yoga relaxation programs like Cyclic Meditation reduce sugar levels in both new and old Type 2 Diabetes mellitus patients. This study reports combined effects of Rasāhāra and Yoga. In Āyurveda, diet is a primary pillar of health. Food is an internal factor contributing to health and disease. The review of ancient literature quotes texts stating the importance of Āhāra-Vihāra for Prameha. Right herbs in correct quantity can restore their health. The scientific literature review concerns importance of breakfast modification, properties of the four herbs and yoga practices used to treat early Type 2 Diabetes mellitus and other diseases, to restore health and wellbeing. The study aim was to conduct a 3-arm controlled trial assessing effects of Rasāhāra and Yoga, or Yoga only on Type 2 Diabetes mellitus, metabolic disorder, and prameha markers in early Type 2 Diabetes mellitus; whose fasting blood sugar more than 100 mg/dl and who have yet not started taking any medicine for that. Objectives included recruiting enough participants to obtain required significances; measuring 5 biomedical parameters every 15 days; pre-post assessment of 10 other biomedical parameters, Āyurveda doša balas and related variables; to maintain participants on a regimen restricting variations in diet and lifestyle; and to evaluate any adverse events or side effects. Methods: The study was conducted at Bhopal Central Jail on male subjects, aged 18 to 70 years. Inclusion criteria: pre-T2DM patients with blood sugar levels, FBS: 100-170; PPBS: 150-220 mg/dl. Exclusion criteria: inability to practice Yoga; very low BMI; mental disorder; already with diabetes complications. Jail Hospital authorities helped with data extraction costs. The design was a three-arm controlled trial as above, with wait-listed controls under physician’s observation. Interventions were as described above: the four Rasāhāra herbs were Wheatgrass (Triticum Aestivum), Āmalaki (Emblica officinalis Gaertn), Guḍuci (Tinospora cordifolia), and Vāsā (Adhatoda vasica Nees) The Yoga program for Diabetes to Group 1 & 2. Group 2 at normal breakfast. Group 3 (Controls) followed their normal jail routine. Assessments measured T2DM Markers (BMI, HbA1c, FBS, & PPBS); related parameters, lipid profile, SBP, DBP & pulse rate, Hb and creatinine; Breath Holding Time (Bhrāmari), and Doṣa Balas and related Guṇas. Data collection was by blinded Jail Hospital personnel. All blood samples were analysed blind to participant groups and trial hypotheses at Śagun Pathology laboratories, Bhopal. Data analysis used Excel and Graph Pad QuickCalcs, and SPSS-20 at S-VYASA. Results were as follows: for Conventional T2DM Markers BMI no changes; FBS and PPBS decreased for Groups 1 & 2, and increased for Group 3; Hb1Ac remained steady for Groups 1 & 2, but increased for controls. Blood lipid levels Groups 1 & 2 tended to improve values of ‘good’, and decrease values of ‘bad, lipoproteins; Controls did the reverse. Heart and hypertension parameters showed consistent decrease in standard deviations for Groups 1 and 2 implying that Yoga’s influence is to normalize blood pressure, correcting hypertension and raising low blood pressure: striking results. Changes in Hb levels were good in Group 1, none in Group 2, but decrease in Group 3. Changes in Creatinine levels: Groups 1 and 2 improved, but Group 3 got worse agreeing with other studies on Yoga and CKD. Group differences imply that Yoga helps prevent nephropathy, T2DM’s deadly complication. Breath holding time increased significantly in both Groups 1 and 2 while it decreased in control group. Seasonal Change: systematic shifts at change of season were a Post hoc discovery of importance to all medical science. Though stated in Āyurveda, the phenomenon is not known to medical science. This first study of Rasāhāra and Yoga for pre-diabetes in a prison setting in India shows that prisoners can benefit from yoga prison programs, especially those with elevated blood sugar and blood pressure levels. Follow-up studies should obtain more robust data so that Yoga may be added to India’s prison programs. The study was the first to confirm Rasāhāra’s value as a food supplement replacing normal breakfast. Those not practicing yoga regularly increased BP and pulse rates. Initially, all participants showed increased Kapha-Pitta Doṣa Balas confirming Āyurveda texts. Group 1 improved in Kapha-Pitta more than Group 2, both did better on all Dosha Balas than controls, confirming the values of their interventions. Results point to the efficacy of IAYT Yoga practice combined with strict āhāra-vihāra for treatment of newly diagnosed T2DM, especially benefits of breakfast modification. Addition of Rasāhāra herbal juices is a cheap alternative to long-term use of chemical drugs, which fail to improve underlying pathology. They support all study hypotheses. Further studies of Rasāhāra treatment are merited, particularly in rural areas, where it would be easy to implement.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

This book provides a complete review of multiple metabolic disorders and the use of phytochemicals for their prevention and treatment. When describing each metabolic disorder, all authors describe the main health alterations, providing the most current figures and statistics worldwide; medicinal plants used in traditional medicine for its treatment and scientific information related to their potential to prevent or treat each condition. Authors also include a complete scientific background check, comprehensive analysis of all phytochemicals recommended for each disorder, a description of the mechanism(s) of action and in vivo and/or in vitro studies. Within this volume, a series of 7 plant species, recommended to treat or prevent the previously described disorders, are presented with their botanical information, traditional use in different cultures and countries, and the available scientific information validating their health benefits. Besides, six main metabolic disorders are described, providing a full scientific background for its general understanding, and three study cases are presented, where metabolic disorders are analyzed and approached from different medical and pharmaceutical angles.Chapter 1 - Soybean contains a great nutritional value, which makes it an excellent food for the human diet. It has large amounts of protein and lipids and also provides fiber, calcium, iron, zinc, and several vitamins. For these reasons, the possible benefits of soy consumption for human health have been studied. Although the results obtained to date have not been conclusive, thanks to its high content of isoflavones (phytochemicals with estrogenic activity), soy is attributed with anti-inflammatory, antioxidants and antifungals properties. Moreover, soybeans could provide significant benefits to patients with cardiovascular diseases, cancer, or diabetes.Chapter 2 - Oil, proteins, vitamins, fibers, and phytochemicals present in the avocado plant have shown the excellent capability of not only addressing the prevalence of these metabolic diseases but also being safe and having minimal side effects. The general objective of this book chapter is to review the bioactive compounds and their action to promote health benefits in the prevention and management of metabolic disorders.Chapter 3 - Heliopsis longipes roots, which contain affinin, has been used in traditional cuisine as a spice for its pungent. Due to its tingling and numbing properties, it is frequently applied to heal diverse pains such as toothache, earache, and headache. Within this chapter, its applications on anti-inflammatory activity, local anesthetic, analgesic, anti-mutagenic, and antioxidant activity, will be reviewed.Chapter 4 - The species Opuntia ficus-indica (L.) Mill., represents a good source of nutrients and antioxidants in the diet of consumers. This chapter aims to offer a simple and economical alternative formulation of artisan conserves prepared with nopal, in which the antioxidant activity was evaluated.Chapter 5 - Metabolic syndrome is known as a group of metabolic abnormalities that increase the risk of developing cardiovascular diseases and type 2 diabetes. The cost of health for companies is very high for workers who have obesity or metabolic syndrome compared to healthy workers. Metabolic syndrome is closely related to obesity, and this, in turn, is associated with a poor diet (high intake of carbohydrates and fats). This chapter explains the decrement of risk factors in workers of Young Living Ecuador Farm based on the Health Belief Model. Chapter 6 - The objective of this chapter book was to analyze the evidence obtained by clinical studies reported by scientific literature. Clinical studies have employed different components or products of grapes, such as pulp, freeze-dried grape, extracts, wine, and a distinct dose of resveratrol, to demonstrate their biological properties against diabetes mellitus, hypertension, and obesity.Chapter 7 - The main purpose of this chapter is to describe the analysis of whether glycated hemoglobin values could be used as a limit marker for earlier diagnosis of type 2 DM in overweight patients. This was a nonexperimental, analytical, retrospective, longitudinal study of 100 overweight patients diagnosed with type 2 DM. The study was carried out in 2014 at Teodoro Maldonado Carbo Hospital, Guayaquil, Ecuador.Chapter 8 - Rosemary is classified not only as spice or ornamental but also as a medicinal plant. It is an important source of volatile and non-volatile compounds. The proportion of them varies in function of diverse factors as a region of growth, environment, extraction treatment, and others. Thanks to its composition, rosemary owners several properties such as anti-obesity, anti-diabetes, anti-cancer, among others, thus the importance of this plant over metabolic diseases is presented in this chapter.Chapter 9 - Agave has been used in traditional medicine as an anesthetic, anticonvulsant, antipyretic, urinary antiseptic, cathartic, cicatricial, and regenerative, diuretic, emmenagogue, and eupeptic. Agave extracts and derived agave products have been used to prevent several metabolic diseases, such as diabetes and cancer. However, more studies are needed to support these effects.

Author: Elaine Elisabetsky
Publisher: EOLSS Publications
Release Date: 2009-10-29
Pages: 328
ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Ethnopharmacology is a component of Encyclopedia of Biological, Physiological and Health Sciences in the global Encyclopedia of Life Support Systems (EOLSS), which is an integrated compendium of twenty one Encyclopedias. Ethnopharmacology is the scientific study correlating ethnic groups, their health, and how it relates to their physical habits and methodology in creating and using medicines. This Theme on Ethnopharmacology presents the field as an amalgam of perspectives, primarily those of pharmacology, pharmacognosy, anthropology, and botany. It highlights the uniquely biocultural perspective on ethnopharmacology offered by medical anthropology, which underscores that health and healing are culturally constructed and socially negotiated. The definition of ethnopharmacology that frames this volume is: the study of indigenous medical systems that connects the ethnography of health and healing with the physiological relevance of its medical practices. The history of botanical medicines is traced from primate self-medication to contributions to biomedicine. The methods of ethnopharmacologic inquiry are presented from pharmacologic, ecological, ethnographic, data management, and ethical perspectives. Chapters are devoted to plants used in the treatment of specific disorders: cancer, parasitic infection, AIDS, inflammation, diabetes, and cardiovascular and neurodegenerative disorders. The important role that plant medicines play in the developing world is revealed in discussion of ritual and ceremony, safety issues, health care, and biodiversity. These two volumes are aimed at the following a wide spectrum of audiences from the merely curious to those seeking in-depth knowledge: University and College students Educators, Professional practitioners, Research personnel and Policy analysts, managers, and decision makers and NGOs.
