INFLAMMATION
1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. Inflammation is not just related to painful joints. Inflammation is the major factor driving the aging process. Inflammation underlies all major degenerative diseases. Cardiovascular inflammation leads to calcification / blockage. Cancer metastasis is an inflammatory process. Cancer recruitment of stem cells is an inflammatory process. Schizophrenia and psychosis is an inflammatory process.

“Inflammation seems to underlie not just senescence but all the chronic illnesses that often come along with it: diabetes, atherosclerosis, Alzheimer’s, heart attack.” “Inflammatory factors predict virtually all bad outcomes in humans. It predicts having heart attacks, having heart failure, becoming diabetic; predicts becoming fragile in old age; predicts cognitive function decline, even cancer to a certain extent.” Russell Tracy, a professor University of Vermont College of Medicine.

Anti-Inflammatory Agents in Corrective Cancer Care

INFLAMMATION and HEART DISEASE
C-reactive protein (CRP) is a substance found in blood that is a marker for inflammation in the body. High levels of this protein are associated with an increased risk of heart disease and low levels with a low risk.

The notion that inflammation plays a central role in heart disease is relatively new, although we've long known that CRP
levels go up to signal any type of inflammation. So far, no one knows exactly what contributes to the inflammation that might trigger or worsen heart disease.

INFLAMMATION CAUSES HEART DISEASE AND STROKE
"Exactly how inflammation plays a role is heart attack and stroke remains a topic of ongoing research. It appears that the inciting event in many heart attacks and some forms of stroke is buildup of fatty, cholesterol-rich plaque in blood vessels.”
Deepak Bhatt, M.D. chief of cardiology for the VA Boston Healthcare System, director of the Integrated Interventional Cardiovascular Program at Brigham and Women's Hospital & VA Boston Healthcare System, and associate professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School.

Inflammation causes Infertility
Women who suffer from asthma are more likely to have difficulty becoming pregnant due to the bronchial disease's inflammation.

Inadequate circulation to the womb inhibits conception
Thomsen S, et al. “Asthma affects time to pregnancy and fertility: a register-based twin study.” European Respiratory Journal. 2013.

Asthma is an Inflammatory Illness 10% of American children have Asthma
Asthma in children: A complete primer
Christopher Johnson MD Nov 15th 2013

“Asthma is a common problem in children — nearly 10% now have it — and the number is increasing…..This is an important subject, since using the medicines correctly is the best way to keep your child out of breathing trouble….”

“According to the World Health Organization::approximately 235 million people are currently suffering from asthma and it is considered the most common chronic disease in children.”

Why medicate to suppress the symptoms when you can correct the imbalances and offer a safe and effective anti-inflammatory food?

Inflammation and Alzheimer's disease
Akiyama H, Barger S, Neurobiol Aging. 2000 May-Jun;21(3):383-421.

Inflammation clearly occurs in pathologically vulnerable regions of the Alzheimer's disease (AD) brain, and it does so with the full complexity of local peripheral inflammatory responses. In the periphery, degenerating tissue and the deposition of highly insoluble abnormal materials are classical stimulants of inflammation.

By better understanding AD inflammatory and immuno-regulatory processes, it should be
possible to develop anti-inflammatory

approaches that may not cure AD but will likely help slow the progression or delay the onset of this devastating disorder.

Inflammation and Diabetes and Obesity
How inflammation makes you fat and diabetic (and vice versa)
By Chris Kresser on September 15, 2010

“Diabesity is an autoimmune, inflammatory disorder.
Inflammation creates obesity and type 2 diabetes (T2DM) Inflammation may be the single-most important mechanism driving the diabesity epidemic.

An elevated pro-inflammatory cytokine profile in multiple chemical sensitivity.
Dantoft TM1, et al 
 Multiple chemical sensitivity (MCS) is a medically unexplained condition characterized by reports of recurrent unspecific symptoms attributed to exposure to low levels of common volatile chemicals. The etiology of MCS is poorly understood, but dysregulation of the immune system has been proposed as part of the pathophysiology. CONCLUSION: MCS individuals displayed a distinct systemic immune mediator profile with increased levels of proinflammatory cytokines and interleukin-2 and inverse regulation of Th2 associated cytokines interleukin-4 and interleukin-13 suggestive of low-grade systemic inflammation, along with a deviating Th2-associated cytokine response not involving IgE-mediated mechanisms.

“These findings begin to create a vision of rational adjunctive anti-inflammatory therapy to “quench the fire” in schizophrenia.”

“So Depression is an Inflammatory disease, but where does the Inflammation come from?”
We now know that depression is associated with a chronic, low-grade inflammatory response and activation of cell-mediated immunity, as well as activation of the compensatory anti-inflammatory reflex system. The identification of known sources of inflammation provides support for inflammation as a mediating pathway to both risk and neuroprogression in depression…Most, but not all, of the above mentioned sources of

inflammation may play a role in other psychiatric disorders, such as 1) bipolar disorder, 2) schizophrenia, 3) autism and 4) post-traumatic stress disorder.

Can We Cure Aging?
Controlling inflammation could be the key to a healthy old age.

“Aging is not the simple result of the passage of time. According to a provocative new view, it is actually something our own bodies create, a side effect of the essential inflammatory system that protects us against infectious disease.”

“Inflammaging”
Modern society has been characterized by a growing proportion of elderly citizens. Coupled with this increase has been a huge increase in the incidence of chronic diseases associated with the elderly. There is growing evidence that the immune system is implicated in virtually all of these age related illnesses, with the inflammatory response being the triggering mechanism that leads to agerelated tissue damage. Indeed, the term “inflammaging” has been coined to describe the underlying inflammatory changes common to most age-related diseases.

Antioxidant capacity is a central feature of phyto-compounds, and the kind of compound diversity represented by Soul leads to broad-spectrum antioxidant protection. Antioxidants help protect our bodies against the damaging effects of free radicals. While a necessary part of human metabolism, radicals can become harmful if there are too many of them. Total ORACFN provides a measure of the total antioxidant power of a food/nutrition product against the five predominant reactive species.

SOUL: An elegant and powerful symphony for health

About Black Cumin Seed
1) “…Nigella sativa (black cumin seed) has been used as traditional medicine for centuries. The crude oil and thymoquinone (TQ) extracted from its seeds and oil are effective against many diseases like cancer, cardiovascular complications, diabetes, asthma, kidney disease etc. It is effective against cancer in blood system, lung, kidney, liver, prostate, breast, cervix, skin with much safety.” 2) “…These results suggest that nigella sativa have analgesic and antiinflammatory effects… mechanisms other than stimulation of opioid receptors are involved…”

About Black Raspberry Seed
1) “We found that non-toxic levels of black raspberry significantly inhibited the growth of human cervical cancer cells.” 2) “Black raspberries and their bioactive components represent promising candidates for future phytochemical-based mechanistic pathway-targeted cancer prevention strategies.” 3) “Black raspberries have been shown to inhibit multiple stages of oral, esophageal, and colon cancer.” 4) Anti-inflammatory effects of freeze-dried black raspberry powder in ulcerative colitis. 5) “Black raspberry extracts (RSE) have been shown to inhibit breast cancer cell growth and stimulate apoptosis.” 6) “The ability of topical BRE to reduce acute UVB-induced inflammation and to decrease tumor development in a long-term model provides compelling evidence to explore the clinical efficacy of BRE in the prevention of human skin cancers.”

About Chardonnay Grape Seed
“Seed flours from chardonnay grape were examined as dietary sources of natural antioxidants and anti-proliferative agents for optimal human health.”

“…Studies have found that grape seed extracts may prevent the growth of breast, stomach, colon, prostate, and lung cancer cells in test tubes. However, there is no clear evidence yet whether it works in humans. Antioxidants, such as those found in grape seed extract, are thought to reduce the risk of developing cancer. Grape seed extract may also help prevent damage to human liver cells caused by chemotherapy medications…”

Thymoquinone: potential cure for inflammatory disorders and cancer.
Abstract Source:Biochem Pharmacol. 2012 Feb 15 ;83(4):443-51. Epub 2011 Oct 10. PMID: 22005518 Abstract Author(s):Chern Chiuh Woo

Thymoquinone is an active ingredient isolated from Nigella sativa and has been investigated for its antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anticancer activities in both in vitro and in vivo models since its first extraction in 1960s. Its anti-oxidant/anti-inflammatory effect has been reported in various disease models, including encephalomyelitis, diabetes, asthma and carcinogenesis. The anticancer effect(s) of thymoquinone are mediated through different modes of action, including anti-proliferation, apoptosis induction, cell cycle arrest, ROS generation and antimetastasis/anti-angiogenesis. In addition, this quinone was found to exhibit anticancer activity through

the modulation of multiple molecular targets, including p53, p73, PTEN, activation of caspases and generation of reactive oxygen species (ROS).

The anti-tumor effects of thymoquinone have also been investigated in tumor xenograft mice models for colon, prostate, pancreatic and lung cancer.

The combination of thymoquinone and conventional chemotherapeutic drugs could produce greater therapeutic effect as well as reduce the toxicity of the latter.
In this review, we summarize the anti-oxidant/anti-inflammatory and anticancer effects of thymoquinone with a focus on its molecular targets, and its possible role in the treatment of inflammatory diseases and cancer.

Thymoquinone (TQ) is the bioactive constituent of the volatile oil of black cumin seed. It has been shown to exert anti-neoplastic and anti-inflammatory effects.
The combination of TQ with clinically used anti-cancer drugs has led to improvements in their therapeutic index and prevents non-tumor tissues from sustaining chemotherapy-induced damage.

“It has been shown that Nigella sativa L. (NS) and reduced glutathione (GSH) have both an anti-peroxidative effect on different tissues and a scavenger effect on ROS.” “These results clearly show that NS and GSH treatment significantly antagonize the effects of radiation.
Therefore, NS and GSH may be a beneficial agent in protection

against ionizing radiation-related tissue injury.”.
In vivo radioprotective effects of Nigella sativa L oil and reduced glutathione against irradiation-induced oxidative injury and number of peripheral blood lymphocytes in rats. Cemek, M; Photochem Photobiol. 2006 Nov-Dec 82(6):1691-6.

Nigella Sativa (black cumin) has neuro-protective, nephroprotective, lung protective, cardio-protective, hepato-protective activities as established by previous studies on animals. The current study demonstrates the role of NS in enhancing memory, attention and cognition. Therefore, whether NS could be considered as potential food supplement for preventing or slow progressing of Alzheimer disease needs further investigations.

Brush your teeth with SOUL & its anti-inflammatory oils! Avoid: Fluoride toothpaste “WARNINGS Keep out of reach of children under 6 yrs age. If more than used for brushing is accidentally swallowed, get medical help or contact a Poison Control center right away.”

What SOUL does NOT do:

SOUL does NOT correct or prevent illness or disease because SOUL is NOT a drug.

SOUL only helps the body do its work.
THE BODY is doing the work, SOUL is helping: - the body get nutrients required for cell signaling - the body have a temporary alteration in pain sensation - the body enhance its natural functions

WHAT is SOUL?
