"Never use industrial alcohol, methylated spirits (methyl alcohol), or rubbing alcohol (isopropyl alcohol) in tinctures. Alcohol-reduced Tinctures Alcoholic tinctures should sometimes be avoided — for example, during pregnancy or a gastric inflammation. Adding 5 ml of tincture to a small glass of almost boiling water and leaving it for 5 minutes allows the alcohol to evaporate. To make nonalcoholic tinctures, replace the alcohol with vinegar or glycerol. Tincture Ratios Tinctures are made in different strengths, expressed as ratios."

"If the systemic memory process is correct, then alcohol compounds contained in roses and other flowers should have a different systemic history than the same alcohol compounds created artificially in the laboratory. The alcohols that have "lived in the rose" will contain information about "roseness," including the environment in which the rose was born and grew up. If the soul of the rose is contained within the alcohols, then the effects of rose memory alcohols should be different from laboratory memory alcohols."

"If you do drink any alcohol, try eating a small fiber-rich snack—such as a piece of fruit or half a cup of whole-grain cereal with skim milk—with a bit of protein, like a bite of chicken or salmon. The food will slow the absorption of the alcohol, so it might help you to avoid a quick buzz and an impulsive order of cheese fries. Then, after one alcoholic drink, order something nonalcoholic and pace yourself. Finally, if you can't give up your toddies, take milk thistle as a supplement."

"For adults, the setting is well orchestrated to overstimulate the senses and encourage other addictive behaviors, such as smoking and drinking alcohol. Certain symptoms of Internet addiction are similar to those in other types of addictive behavior. These include cravings (in this case, for more time on the computer), neglecting family members and friends, moodiness when not using the computer, and lying to people about the amount of time spent on the Internet."

"In low doses, alcohol stimulates your blood vessels' endothelial cells to manufacture TPA, the same compound given intravenously to dissolve clots after a heart attack or stroke. Moreover, alcohol stimulates these same cells to produce nitric oxide, which keeps blood vessels from constricting. That's why you look flushed when you imbibe. (Believe it or not, that's what Viagra does as well.) But here's an important proviso: If you don't drink alcohol, don't start. If you do drink, be aware of the steep risk-to-benefit ratio."

"Y/N lu inn rwvmwu julu i iui^i I drink more than normal amounts of alcohol or use illegal drugs at least once a day. Y/N Explanation: We all have our moments because life can be trying. If you circled yes for at least two of these questions, though, it's a sign that you're often in a bad mood or you have frequent mood swings. As you read this book, pay special attention to the supplements and the eating habits that can improve your moods. They will make you more fun to live with—and will make it easier for you to live with yourself. What Are Your Eating Habits Like?"

"In The Food-Mood Solution, I tackle a variety of these more common mood problems, including • Anger and hostile behavior • Tension and anxiety • Irritability and impatience • Impulsive and distractible habits • Fatigue and fuzzy thinking • Stress and sleep problems • alcohol and drug abuse This book is different from all the other food-mood books in another important way."

"For many people, drinking alcohol becomes a central part of their social activities. Peer pressure often factors in with the use of cocaine, meth, and other street drugs. It's cool and daring to use drugs for the first time, but the initial mental alertness and decreased appetite attract people as well. In a world that values multitasking and increased productivity, the short-term effects of cocaine can be exhilarating. So can be the weight loss that comes from how the drugs suppress appetite."

"But have more than one to two (for women) or two to three (for men) servings a day and the toxic properties of alcohol raise blood pressure and promote cirrhosis of the liver and eventually cardiomyopathy.7 By servings, I mean a glass of wine or a l-ounce jigger of spirits. In low doses, alcohol stimulates your blood vessels' endothelial cells to manufacture TPA, the same compound given intravenously to dissolve clots after a heart attack or stroke. Moreover, alcohol stimulates these same cells to produce nitric oxide, which keeps blood vessels from constricting."

"Indeed, there is now, in a Washington suburb, a much ballyhooed National Institute of alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, but there is no National Institute of Nicotine Abuse and Nicotinism. Isn't this because psychiatrists disapprove of alcoholism, but approve of and indeed encourage nicotinism by the most potent means of moral teaching in the world, namely, example?"

"The alcoholic and the addict both felt they were powerless when it came to alcohol and drugs, but it was very clear that the real powerlessness was about some aspect of their life. When things went wrong, they turned to these dangerous and illegal substances, while people who struggled with their weight had found a legal, readily available tranquilizer to serve the same purpose. I also realized that overeating issues had some relevance to the stages of life we normally go through in maturing."

"David Segarnick, associated with the New York Veterans Administration Medical Center in New York City and the Department of Psychiatry at the New York University School of Medicine, have both found that evening primrose oil can substantially reduce liver damage caused by alcohol: The oil works to reduce the withdrawal symptoms of alcoholics, repair liver and other cellular damage caused by excessive alcohol, repair brain changes caused by alcohol, and restore certain cognitive abilities lost because of alcoholism. The immune system is perhaps our first line of defense against cancer."

"The son of a Methodist minister, Still believed that imbibing alcohol was sinful. If alcohol is sinful, then aren't other drugs as well? Still was drawn to the theories of Mesmer and the magnetic healers, with their belief that diseases were caused by interruptions in the pathways for magnetic fluids in the body. The magnetic healers employed magnets to redirect that flow. Instead of magnets, Still postulated that the manipulative techniques (long practiced by bonesetters and the like) would work as well as magnets, if not better."

"Can we learn anything from history, specifically from the experience of alcohol prohibition in the United States? Can we learn anything from comparative studies, specifically the experiences of other countries that have already selectively decriminalized these drugs? That the answers are difficult does not mean that the questions should not be addressed. Indeed, we would assert that had these questions been asked before both twentieth century prohibitions—alcohol and narcotics—considerable misery and trouble might have been avoided."
- Gerald E. Markle and Frances B. McCrea, What If Medicine Disappeared? (Get the book.)

"Mindful of the social and health effects of alcoholism, public health authorities are loath to recommend drinking, but the fact is that people who drink moderately and regularly live longer and suffer considerably less heart disease than teetotalers. alcohol of any kind appears to reduce the risk of heart disease, but the polyphenols in red wine (resveratrol in particular) appear to have unique protective qualities."

"For example, studies indicate that alcohol enhances tobacco's ability to stimulate tumor formation in rats. Heavy consumption of alcohol may increase the risk of cancer and is best avoided, as it has' many negative effects on health. Chemicals There are many chemicals that have been developed since the beginning of the Industrial Revolution in the late 18th century. Each was created, as it offered a unique function superior to chemicals found in nature. Thought to be wonderful inventions, these chemicals were placed in everyday appliances, school buildings and foods."

"Individuals who drank small quantities of alcohol-meaning one or two servings a day for women and two to three for men-were found to live longer and have lower rates of heart disease than people who abstained or consumed alcohol rarely as well as those who overindulged.6 A recent 14-year study of nonsmoking doctors who were of normal weight found that those who consumed two glasses of red wine a day virtually eliminated the chance of a heart attack over the study period, while those who were teetotalers actually had numerous heart attacks!"

"Many people try to numb their excessive ruminations with alcohol or drugs. In fact, people who have a high tendency to ruminate are at high risk for alcohol abuse.6 Food can be another unhealthy distraction. Some people use food to escape painful self-awareness, which can lead to bingeing and other problematic forms of emotional eating.7 And, as I'll discuss later in this chapter, bingeing on media can pose its own problems. Many TV programs, for instance, although absorbing, also shower you with violent content."

"Some 80 percent of the alcoholics were able to control their cravings and stay off alcohol. The training also seemed to affect their blood chemistry, increasing their levels of beta-endorphin, another "feelgood" brain chemical. Biofeedback, combined with work on their self-image, eventually eliminated much of their dysfunctional behavior and transformed them into better people.54 Joe Kamiya, a psychologist at the University of Chicago, demonstrated the amazing specificity of brain-wave biofeedback through some remarkable brain research."

"If you're on the SlimDown, remind yourself of your goal: no drinkable calories— alcohol or otherwise. And if you're following the FlexPlan, know your choices. Choose in advance and stick to the program and you'll succeed and feel great. Whatever you do, avoid the "mega cocktails." Super grande margaritas and large daiquiris and pina coladas can run 400 or more calories. Berries are a great dessert choice. Forgo any cream or sauce. Party Tips Parties and special events can be challenging."

"He was not abusing drugs or alcohol; he was not elderly; he did not suffer from a debilitating physical illness; he had not experienced a severe loss, trauma, or death of a loved one; and his business and finances were sound. Although Harry may have told his doctor that he had experienced suicidal feelings in the past, he never made suicidal threats or attempts. He was feeling pressured by his in-laws to work on their house and his mother was dying of Alzheimer's but everyone who knew him agreed that Harry had been handling these stresses without displaying unusual strain."

"Beverages: Water and Tea. No alcohol. No caloric beverages. Up to 1 cup coffee daily (try to shift to tea). Low-fat or nonfat milk or soy milk is okay as a snack or as part of a meal. Green or black tea—one or more brewed cups daily. • 6+ cups water daily— throughout your day. The Behaviors: Plan your week in advance selecting from the SuperFoodsRx Meal Lists. 3 meals, 1 SuperNutrient Booster, 1 snack daily. Breakfast variety: minimum 2 different breakfasts weekly. Lunch variety: minimum 2-3 different lunches weekly. Dinner variety: minimum 3—4 different dinners weekly."

"Would the legislator hold the child to such a hard line of personal responsibility—or would he blame the alcohol and the person who gave it to the child? Similarly, both child and adult patients given psychiatric drugs are rarely forewarned about the potential for medication madness and have no expectation that their drugs could drive them to lose self-control. This lack of prior information increases the risk of becoming spellbound and establishes a potential criminal defense of involuntary intoxication."
