The Impact of Vitamins and Supplements
Integrative Medicine
“Integrative medicine honors the innate ability of the body to
heal, values the relationship between patient and physician, and
integrates complementary and alternative medicine to support
the organism and facilitate healing.”
---Victoria Maizes, MD, Executive Director
University of Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine

The Impact of Vitamins and Supplements
Why Integrative Medicine?
• Patient at the center
• Addresses the full range of physical, emotional, mental, social,
spiritual and environmental influences
• Personalized strategy that considers the patient’s unique conditions,
needs and circumstances
• Health as “a state of complete physical, mental and social wellbeing
and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.”*

11
The Impact of Vitamins and Supplements
Your Plate
• No one food ingredient
– Eat from the rainbow
– Broccoli/cabbage family
• Indole-3-carbinol
– Supports immune system, reduces cellular damage
balances hormones
– Collards, mustard greens, turnips, cabbage, broccoli,
kale, cabbage, cauliflower and Brussels sprouts

Georgia Tetlow, MD - Philadelphia Integrative Medicine – www.philly-im.com - 888-702-7974
12
The Impact of Vitamins and Supplements
Antioxidants
• Reduce inflammatory and toxic cell mediators
– NFkB, Il-6, Il-8
• Donate electrons to electron-deficient free radicals
– Neutralize them!
– Cells and DNA protected, help prevent cancer

13
The Impact of Vitamins and Supplements
Why Supplements, Anyway?
–
–
–
–
Strengthen the immune system
Reduce inflammation
Reduce free radicals
Reduce DNA damage that leads to cancer
Georgia Tetlow, MD - Philadelphia Integrative Medicine – www.philly-im.com - 888-702-7974
14
The Impact of Vitamins and Supplements
Pearl 1
• Whole foods and healthy diets should be the primary
approach in designing studies to test nutrition-cancer
associations
• Experts believe components in many foods, especially
fruits and vegetables, act synergistically to reduce
cancer risk
Georgia Tetlow, MD - Philadelphia Integrative Medicine – www.philly-im.com - 888-702-7974
15
The Impact of Vitamins and Supplements
Pearl 2
• Seek products that most closely mimic the forms that
nutrients naturally take in food, such as vitamin E in the
form of mixed tocopherols and tocotrienols or vitamin A
in the form of mixed carotenoids (vs. β-carotene alone or
vitamin A palmitate)
• Dosage, duration and quality matter
Georgia Tetlow, MD - Philadelphia Integrative Medicine – www.philly-im.com - 888-702-7974
16
The Impact of Vitamins and Supplements
Pearl 3
• The greatest benefit from taking supplements of any kind
seems to be for those who are deficient in a particular
nutrient
"Diet, anthropometric measures and prostate cancer risk: a review of prospective cohort and intervention
studies." Dagnelie PC, et al. BJU international 93(8):1139-50 May, 2004
Georgia Tetlow, MD - Philadelphia Integrative Medicine – www.philly-im.com - 888-702-7974
17
The Impact of Vitamins and Supplements
Pearl 4
• Genetic differences contribute to individual variation in response to
foods and nutrients
• Genetics influence the rates of absorption, metabolism and sites of
action of individual constituents
• Unmeasured, uncharacterized gene variation likely explains
inconsistent findings across studies and across different populations
Milner, JA. "Incorporating basic nutrition science into health interventions for cancer prevention.” The Journal
of nutrition 133(11 Suppl 1):3820S-3826S Nov, 2003

18
The Impact of Vitamins and Supplements
Vitamin D3 (Cholecalciferol)
• Hormone
• Controls phosphorus, calcium and bone metabolism and
neuromuscular function
• The only vitamin the body can manufacture from sunlight
• More and more people deficient due to indoor living,
heliophobia and sunscreen use
Georgia Tetlow, MD - Philadelphia Integrative Medicine – www.philly-im.com - 888-702-7974
19
The Impact of Vitamins and Supplements
Vitamin D3 (Cholecalciferol) continued…
• Approx. 1 billion* may be Vitamin D3 deficient
• Dark skin, obesity, heredity may hinder production
• Elderly may need more D3 (decreased skin, renal
synthesis)
• Test: 25 (OH) Vitamin D
– <30 ng/mL insufficient
– 45 ng/mL adequate
– 60-80 ng/mL more optimal

21
The Impact of Vitamins and Supplements
Fats, Omega 3’s
• Cook with Olive Oil
• FISH OIL (Omega 3’s fatty acids)
– modulate estrogen metabolism, estrogen
receptors
– Must be triglyceride
– 1-3 grams daily, with food, discuss with
doctor
– mercury/toxin free
– many benefits
– thins the blood

23
The Impact of Vitamins and Supplements
Dairy
• Over 36 case-control plus 10 prospective cohort studies
showed inconsistent findings
• Recent pooled analysis of American and European
cohort studies found no association with dairy and
postmenopausal breast cancer
Moorman PG, et al. "Consumption of dairy products and the risk of breast cancer: a review of the literature."
Moorman PG, et al. The American journal of clinical nutrition 80(1):5-14 Jul, 2004
Missmer SA, et al. "Meat and dairy food consumption and breast cancer: a pooled analysis of cohort studies."

Georgia Tetlow, MD - Philadelphia Integrative Medicine – www.philly-im.com - 888-702-7974
24
The Impact of Vitamins and Supplements
Dairy continued…
• Dietary calcium and low-fat dairy products associated
with a moderately lower risk of postmenopausal breast
cancer compared with women with lowest intake levels
• Supplemental calcium or higher levels of total calcium
(diet plus supplements) were not related to overall breast
cancer risk
Moorman PG, et al. "Consumption of dairy products and the risk of breast cancer: a review of the literature."

25
The Impact of Vitamins and Supplements
Soy
• Soy beans and fermented soy bean products such as tofu,
tempeh and soymilk
• Case-control studies support a protective effect of soy in the
breast
– case-control study among Korean women stratified by
menopausal and hormone receptor status of the tumors
• significant 64% reduction in breast cancer risk (95% CI
0.20, 0.64) with higher soy consumption
Cho YA, et al. "Effect of dietary soy intake on breast cancer risk according to menopause and hormone
receptor status." European journal of clinical nutrition 64(9):924-32 Sep, 2010
Georgia Tetlow, MD - Philadelphia Integrative Medicine – www.philly-im.com - 888-702-7974
26
The Impact of Vitamins and Supplements
Soy continued…
• This association may not only result from higher intake of
soy but also in utero and early exposure and prepubertal and adolescent exposure during mammary
gland development
• In addition, soy intake among Asian women is strongly
correlated with increased consumption of fruit and
vegetables
Butler LM, et al. "A vegetable-fruit-soy dietary pattern protects against breast cancer among postmenopausal
Singapore Chinese women." The American journal of clinical nutrition 91(4):1013-9 Apr, 2010
Georgia Tetlow, MD - Philadelphia Integrative Medicine – www.philly-im.com - 888-702-7974
27
The Impact of Vitamins and Supplements
Soy Conclusions
• Moderate amounts in diet are safe and likely protective
• Half serving a day servings per day
• May not be advisable in advanced stage breast cancer
as early evidence from cell culture studies suggest
possible proliferative effect in the setting of metastatic
carcinoma
Messina M, et al. Can clinicians now assure their breast cancer patients that soy foods are safe? Women's
health (London, England) 6(3):335-8 May, 2010
Martínez-Montemayor, et al. "Individual and combined soy isoflavones exert differential effects on metastatic
cancer progression." Clinical & experimental metastasis 27(7):465-80 Oct, 2010

“Integrative medicine addresses the
root causes of illness and
suffering. These root causes
involve many aspects of a
person’s life, including the
physical, but also the
psychosocial, emotional, and
spiritual dimensions as well.”

Director of the Preventive
Medicine Research Center
