Disease Prevention and Treatment

Disease Prevention and Treatment, Fifth Edition
130 Evidence based protocols to combat the diseases of aging
By: Life Extension Foundation
ISBN - 978-0-9658777-8-7

This is a large book, 1376 pages, on 8 1/2 by 11 inch printing, that presents detailed and modern information about 130 areas of human health with an especial emphasis on living a well and productive life in the senior years.

Some examples of the protocols include the following -

Acetaminophen and NSAID Toxicity; Acne; Adrenal Disorders; Age-related Cognitive Decline; Age related Macular Degeneration; Allergies; ... Surgical Preperation; Thyroid Regulation; Trauma and Wound Healing; Urinary Tract Infection; Uterine Fibroids; Vertigo.

Each protocol presents a general discussion of the illness aimed for the educated layman or the medical professional. That is followed by a section on Conventional Treatments - which usually mentions side effects if appropriate. That is followed by a section on treating the health condition with Nutritional and Alternative Therapies. The protocol finishes with Life Extension suggestions, which lists areas such as lifestyle modifications, and possible nutrients, along with daily dosage, to be considered.

An interesting protocol is on Blood Testing. This section covers the philosophy behind blood testing to obtain readings of various health parameters and discusses the many shortcomings in current medical practice. Some 120 blood tests are examined in detail. The "reference" values are discussed, and in many cases, Life Extension's recommended, sometimes more appropriate, values based on their studies.

One example is the vitamin D test. The reference range is 32 - 100 ng/mL. Life Extension's optimal range is 50 - 80 ng/mL. I.e., 32 ng/ML is considered too low for good health.

A serious omission is no mention of the neural injury process which creates poorly detoxified internal toxins which in turn appear to facilitate many of the multi-system or environmental illnesses, such as MCS, EHS, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia and others.

Price - $39.95, for both members or non-members.
