tioners combine lower doses of California poppy with other nervines
to relieve anxiety. Researchers studied a combination of California
poppy, hawthorn flower (Crataegus laevigata), and magnesium in
264 people with mild to moderate anxiety. Those taking the herb
mixture had significantly improved anxiety symptoms after three
months compared to those taking placebo. Hawthorn is primarily
used for heart conditions and is not usually considered a nervine.
However, it may help alleviate anxiety symptoms such as heart pal-
pitations and increased blood pressure. “

Properties. Clinically developed specifically for those with chronic

James Duke, Ph.D., in his book The Green Pharmacy, makes the
following comment on Black walnut (Juglans nigra.) “Kathi Keville,
author of The Illustrated Herb Encyclopedia and Herbs for Health
and Healing, a California Heralist whom I admire, recounts one
impressive study showeing that the fresh husk of the black walnut
destroyed candida better than a commonly prescribed antifungal
drug . . .”
“Recurrent or chronic infections, including chronic candidiasis, are
characterized by a depressed immune system. A repetitive cycle
makes it difficult to overcome chronic candidiasis: a compromised
immune system leads to infection, and infection leads to damage to
the immune system, further weakining resistance.” (Murray and
Pizzorno, Encyclopedia of Natural Medicine)
Enhanced immune system function may be the most important
component of treating this condition.

They tried this, but they didn’t do it proper-
ly...they left out some very important risk fac-
tors for prostate cancer...”
“So what you’re left with at the end of the
day is an association that at best is very weak
and further weakened by the fact that they
didn’t account for the known predictors of
prostate cancer, when they were making this
Dr D'Amico continued: “The thing that
concerns me the most is that you can find
almost anything associated with aggressive
prostate cancer. You can find that driving a
Cadillac [could be linked to it] ...if you don’t
adjust for the factors that are known to be
associated with it, and you know, from a
truly scientific standpoint that’s what makes
this association extremely weak and possibly
Savage was very dismissive of the lead
researcher and author of the study, Theodore
Brasky PhD). He commented: “I don’t want
to knock the guy that wrote it but he is really
a kind of lowly assistant professor who I think
was looking for some media attention.”
Savage followed up by asking “But how do
we know when the men with prostate cancer
started taking fish oils? Did they start taking
the fish oils after they were diagnosed with
prostate cancer or before?” [DG: There was
no information as to whether the men were
taking fish oil supplements. There was no
information on their dietary fish intake. ]
Professor D’Amico replied: “It’s not dis-
cussed, it’s a good point.”
Savage then made the point that many
men, when they get sick, suddenly look for
anything to help them and start taking fish
oils. He then said, “Does that mean it caused
it? Of course not.”
Savage added, “So the study is really value-
less as far as I can tell.”
Professor D’Amico concluded, “The scien-
tific strength of it is weak, at best.”
Latest Omega-3 Prostate Cancer
Study – Don’t Believe All You
Omega-3 and prostate cancer are making
headlines after the latest study. There is good
and bad about getting your health informa-
tion off the Internet. The good is that you
have all the latest studies at your fingertips.
And the bad is that you have all the latest
studies at your fingertips. The media loves to
jump on the latest story that goes against all
the other evidence. How does this relate to
omega-3 fatty acids from fish oil and your
prostate you ask? Well there are countless
studies on the benefits of taking omega-3
fatty acids for prostate health, but then one
recent study on omega-3 and prostate cancer
was published stating the opposite, that
omega-3 fatty acids can cause prostate can-
cer. That leaves people like us who don’t
know whether to keep heading up stream or
turn around and forget everything we have
ever known about these healthy oils.
What Is Omega-3?
Omega-3 fatty acids are considered essen-
tial because they are not made by the body
and must be consumed through food or sup-
plements. Common sources are fish oil and
flaxseed oil. Omega-3 fatty acids are a type
of polyunsaturated fat that has many health
benefits in the body including lowering cho-
lesterol and triglycerides, being good for
blood pressure and cardiovascular health,
helping the body with responding to insulin,
and by preventing cancer cell growth includ-
ing prostate cancer.
What Are the Studies on Omega-
3 Preventing Prostate Cancer?
Researchers conducted a study at UC
San Francisco that was published in 2009
on omega-3 and prostate cancer. They
studied 466 men with an aggressive form
of prostate cancer and 478 healthy men.
They screened the men for a gene
known to increase risk of prostate cancer
and had them men fill out questionnaires
about diet.
After compiling the data, researchers
saw that men who ate dark fatty fish like
salmon at least once per week had a 63%
reduced risk of developing prostate can-
cer. Men who consumed little to no fish
and had the gene variation were 5 times
more likely to develop advanced prostate
cancer. The researchers concluded that
omega-3 might decrease inflammation in the
prostate and the progression of cancer by
having an effect on the gene.
Cancer Prostate in Sweden
A large Swedish study also looked at men
who had this same gene and fish consump-
tion. Researchers found that the risk of
prostate cancer was 43% lower in men who
consumed salmon and similar fish more than
one time per week when compared with
men who never ate fatty fish.
Researchers conducted a large Physician’s
Health Study at Harvard School of Public
Health of over 20,000 men. They found that
of the men diagnosed with prostate cancer,
the men who ate fish at least 5 times per
week had a 48% lower risk of dying from
prostate cancer.
What About the Latest Study?
Keep in mind that this is one study, and it
may not be the best study. It is a retrospec-
tive study as described by Dr. Geo, which
means it looks back over time at a different
trial and it does not show cause and effect.
This study was conducted by Theodore
Brasky and his team. The abstract can be
found here.
The researchers looked at specimens from
the SELECT trial. These findings indicate that
