9 Steps To Perfect Health, Chris Kresser — chriskresser.com/perfect-health
"But while allopathic medicine excels at emergency and trauma care, it isn't very good at fostering health. (In fact the subject of health rarely comes up at all in conventional medical textbooks, which are entirely focused on disease.) ... One of the most glaring mistakes conventional medicine makes is to assume that all of these modern diseases—diabetes, heart disease, depression, autoimmune disease, etc.—are unrelated conditions that don't share a common cause. ... The conventional approach is to treat each of these various problems with different drug[sic], and ignore the fundamental factors that are at the root of all of them. That has been a stupendously unsuccessful approach."

List of Amino Acids — www.homeopathyforwomen.org/amino_acids.htm
Methionine "Together with cysteine, methionine is one of two sulfur-containing proteinogenic amino acids. Its derivative S-adenosyl methionine (SAM) serves as a methyl donor. ..
Methionine is an intermediate in the biosynthesis of cysteine, carnitine, taurine, lecithin, phosphatidylcholine, and other phospholipids. Methionine can be regenerated from homocysteine via methionine synthase in a reaction that requires Vitamin B12 as a cofactor." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Methionine
Methionine [Other Names: DL-Methionine, L-2-amino-4-(methylthio)butyric acid, L-Methionine, Metionina.] (in its natural L-form) is a proteinogen amino acid, classed as an essential amino acid, and cannot be synthesized by the body. Methionine is found in meat, fish, and dairy products and it plays an important role in many cell functions. — nutritiondata.self.com/foods-000084000000000000000.html [See: INFECTIONS]
Betaine (Trimethyglycine [TMG]) "This medication is used to treat high levels of a certain important body chemical (homocysteine) due to an inherited disorder (homocystinuria). Decreasing high homocysteine levels may help prevent serious blood clots, abnormal bone formation, brittle bones (osteoporosis), and eye problems (e.g., dislocated eye lens, nearsightedness). This medication works by decreasing blood levels of homocysteine. It does not correct the inherited disorder that causes the disease." — www.webmd.com/drugs/drug-1558-betaine+oral.aspx
"The dramatic effects of betaine on survival and growth, and the partial reversibility of the biochemical and developmental anomalies in the brains of MTHFR-deficient mice, emphasize an important role for choline and betaine depletion in the pathogenesis of homocystinuria due to MTHFR deficiency. ...
Betaine supplementation has proven effective in ameliorating the biochemical abnormalities and the clinical course in homocystinuria due to severe MTHFR deficiency. It lowers the elevated plasma homocysteine levels associated with this disease and increases plasma methionine concentrations. Betaine supplementation is believed to directly enhance homocysteine remethylation and, consequently, to increase the availability of methionine for protein synthesis and transmethylation. However, high-dose betaine treatment does not normalize homocysteine metabolism in homocystinuric patients, as indicated by plasma homocysteine levels that remain 5-10-fold elevated." www.biochemj.org/bj/382/0831/3820831.pdf
Choline Choline is an essential nutrient and a precursor for betaine (Fig. 1). It has several important functions: a source of methyl groups needed to make the primary methyl donor, S-adenosylmethionine; a part of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine; and a component of the predominant phospholipids in membranes (phosphatidylcholine and sphingomyelin). Folate and choline are metabolically interrelated. Diminished folate availability increases demand for choline as a methyl donor while decreased choline availability increases demand for folate methyl groups. Choline, a water-soluble essential nutrient, helps keep the cells and nerves working normally. Choline and esters of choline are widely distributed in food; with animal products generally containing more choline per unit weight than plants. Sources are: eggs, beef, chicken, fish, and milk as well as select plant foods like cruciferous vegetables and certain beans.

B-1 — Benfotiamine is a lipid-soluble form of thiamine (vitamin B-1). It is the most effective metabolic precursor of active thiamine, or vitamin B1, available. It metabolizes quickly, producing high levels of thiamine pyrophosphate (TPP, the active form of thiamine), which then continues to metabolize in the body as usual.
Niacinamide (B3) Benefits these problems: MRSA, Staph, Candida yeast overgrowth, arthritis, cancer, diabetes, depression, Schizophrenia, Alzheimers, and learning disabilities. — lymeinchronicillness.com/benefits-of-b3-niacinamide/ [See: DIABETES]

*** Vitamin C, Titrating to Tolerance by Robert F. Cathcart, M.D. — vitamincfoundation.org/www.orthomed.com/titrate.htm
"It is well established that certain symptoms are associated with an almost total lack of vitamin C within the body. Symptoms of scurvy include lassitude, malaise, bleeding gums, loss of teeth, nosebleeds, bruising, hemorrhages in any part of the body, easy infections, poor healing of wounds, deterioration of joints, brittle and painful bones, and death, etc. It is thought that this disease only occurs with dietary deprivation of vitamin C. However, an analogous condition is produced as follows:
Well-nourished humans usually contain not much more than 5 grams of vitamin C in their bodies. Unfortunately, the majority of people have far less ascorbate than this amount in their bodies and are at risk for many problems related to failure of metabolic processes dependent upon ascorbate. This condition is called CHRONIC SUBCLINICAL SCURVY."
These two quotes are instructive: "There are more than ten thousand scientific papers that make it quite clear that there is not one body process (such as what goes on inside cells or tissues) and not one disease or syndrome (from the common cold to leprosy) that is not influenced - directly or indirectly - by vitamin C." - Dr. Emanuel Cheraskin, M.D., Dr. Marshall Ringsdorf, D.M.D., and Dr. Emily Sisley, THE VITAMIN C CONNECTION.
"I have never seen a patient that Vitamin C would not benefit." - Dr. Frederick Klenner, M.D. [See: knowledgeofhealth.com/vitamin-c-in-the-emergency-department-nose-bleeds/

Vitamin D Dose Recommendations, Dr. Mercola, MD: Ideally your blood level of 25 OH D should be 60ng/ml or greater.
Vitamin D sources are: milk, eggs, cod liver oil, shiitake mushrooms and certain fish including tuna. It is rarely possible to get enough vitamin D from diet alone. Even with supplementation it may take months to reach adequate levels, then take some Vitamin D3 daily for the rest of your life.

"This multifunctional hormone and its metabolite dehydroepiandrosterone sulfate (DHEA-S) provide critical hormonal benefits in both men and women (Traish 2011; Savineau 2013). As a precursor to androgens (male hormones) and estrogens (female hormones), DHEA plays a fundamental role in the maintenance of hormonal balance and youthful vitality. It also modulates a variety of pathways throughout the body involved in various aspects of health and disease via direct actions independent of its role as a precursor to androgens and estrogens (Samaras 2013; Traish 2011; Savineau 2013)." www.lef.org/protocols/metabolic_health/dhea_restoration_01.htm] Symptoms of low DHEA are: Extreme fatigue, Decrease in muscle mass, Decrease in bone density, Depression, Aching joints, Loss of libido and Lowered immunity.

L-Glutamine - Helps to heal and seal the gut along with aiding in recovery after workouts, so it's a double whammy supplement.
Quality Fish Oil - Preferably a liquid, not capsule, if you can stand the taste. This helps reduce inflammation, balance hormones, and supports the immune system.
Probiotics - They provide live strains of good bacteria to help bolster your defenses.
Cinnamon - It can help to improve digestion and, as an added bonus, is great at balancing blood sugar levels. Mint - Great at soothing the stomach and can help to relax the gastrointestinal tract.
Zinc - Very important as it is utilized to form digestive enzymes and also used in regulating hormones.
Prebiotics - In the form of fermented foods. Prebiotics help to feed friendly bacteria and allow them to thrive in a healthy environment. Fermented foods include bio-available yogurt, kefir, kimchi, and sauerkraut.
PH Balancing or Alkaline Foods - Anything green is generally okay, like kale, spinach, broccoli, parsley, chlorella, and spirulina. These are all great at keeping high stomach acid levels in order."

HEART & CHOLESTEROL:
Wrong "Low-fat" diet destroys the body
What really causes heart disease, Dr. Dwight Lundell, M.D. (Author of: The Cure for Heart Disease: Truth Will Save a Nation and The Cure for Heart Disease and The Great Cholesterol Lie.) — myscienceacademy.org/2012/08/19/world-renown-heart-surgeon-speaks-out-on-what-really-causes-heart-disease/
"The only accepted therapy was prescribing medications to lower cholesterol and a diet that severely restricted fat intake. ... These recommendations are no longer scientifically or morally defensible. The discovery a few years ago that inflammation in the artery wall is the real cause of heart disease is slowly leading to a paradigm shift in how heart disease and other chronic ailments will be treated. The long-established dietary recommendations have created epidemics of obesity and diabetes, the consequences of which dwarf any historical plague in terms of mortality, human suffering and dire economic consequences. ... Simply stated, without inflammation being present in the body, there is no way that cholesterol would accumulate in the wall of the blood vessel and cause heart disease and strokes. Without inflammation, cholesterol would move freely throughout the body as nature intended. It is inflammation that causes cholesterol to become trapped. ... Inflammation is not complicated — it is quite simply your body's natural defence to a foreign invader such as a bacteria, toxin or virus. The cycle of inflammation is perfect in how it protects your body from these bacterial and viral invaders. However, if we chronically expose the body to injury by toxins or foods the human body was never designed to process, a condition occurs called chronic inflammation. Chronic inflammation is just as harmful as acute inflammation is beneficial. ...
*** "Let me repeat that: The injury and inflammation in our blood vessels is caused by the low fat diet recommended for years by mainstream medicine. ... There is no escaping the fact that the more we consume prepared and processed foods, the more we trip the inflammation switch little by little each day. The human body cannot process, nor was it designed to consume, foods packed with sugars and soaked in omega-6 oils." ***
