0057. Rye extract improves QOL in HIV/AIDS patients

Oralmat and HIV Disease: A Report of Five Cases

Rubin, D., Levine, S. J. Orthomol.Med, 16(3), 183-187, 2001.

Background: Oralmat™ is made from rye grass extract and has similar therapeutic effects to all cereal grasses. It has been used to treat asthma, bronchitis, emphysema and hay fever.  It has also been used to treat inflammatory conditions such as sinusitis and the common cold.  It is taken as drops under the tongue.  Oralmat™ contains genistein, co-enzyme Q10 (CoQ10), plant sterols and the potent immune trigger beta 1,3 glucan among many other natural substances—it is not known which ingredient—or which combination of ingredients play the most important roles. This article describes the experiences of 5 different individuals with HIV/AIDs using rye grass extract.

Clinical Case Studies: The first case describes a 43 year old man with HIV and asthma.  He was treated for asthma with steroids.  After 4 weeks on rye grass extract (5 drops, 3x a day) the patient was able to stop taking the steroids and had no more asthma attacks.  The second case describes another HIV+ man with low T-cell counts (low numbers of T-cells is a sign that the disease is progressing).  He began using rye grass extract, (5 drops, 3x a day)along with other supplements and a plan to modify his lifestyle in healthier ways.  His T cell count increased and he was less susceptible to infections than he had been.  The third case was a letter from a nurse who had been stuck with a needle in the 1980s and was HIV+.  At the time he wrote the letter, he was 70 years old and had begun taking rye grass extract for the last month—he reported that “I am feeling well, motivated, gaining my energy level back, keep busy from 5 a.m. to 2 p.m., and then take a nap for two hours and work again in my home office until midnight.”  The fourth case concerned an HIV+ man who had extremely low T cell counts and a very high level of virus in his system—but serious adverse side effects prevented him from undergoing any of the standard therapies.  Using rye grass extract, however, he was able to tolerate those therapies—his T cell levels increased and the amount of virus in his system dropped.  The last case concerns a man who had suffered severe spinal injuries after a car accident and had a number of other serious medical conditions – AND was HIV+.  After 3 weeks on rye grass extract, his energy levels increased, his pain levels decreased, his appetite returned and he was walking again. Continue reading

0082. Immunologic and Biochemical Effects of the Fermented Wheat Germ Extract

Immunologic and Biochemical Effects of the Fermented Wheat Germ Extract Avemar

Illmer, C., Madlener, S., Horvath, Z., Saiko, P., Losert, A., Herbacek, I., Grusch, M., Krupitza, G., Fritzer-Szekeres,M., Szekeres,T. Experimental Biology and Medicine 2005, 230:144-149.

Background: This paper describes a number of different laboratory tests that were used to try to explain the positive effects seen in patients with colon cancer in previous clinical studies.  The studies found that Avemar, a fermented Wheat Germ extract, uses a number of different means to produce these positive effects.  One way Avemar improves the survival of colon cancer patients is by targeting the cancer cells and killing them and by slowing down their growth.  Another method described was by reducing the amount of enzymes available for DNA synthesis (an indirect way of slowing down the growth of cancer cells) and by inhibiting two enzymes, COX-1 and COX-2 that are associated with the growth of colon cancers. Vitamin C, a potent anti-oxidant, used along with Avemar slowed down the growth of the colon cancer cells even more than with Avemar alone.
