"During the study, the Qigong master displayed a remarkable ability to send precise instructions to specific parts of the plant, some of which were damaging, some beneficial.15 A similar study was carried by out researchers at the National Yang Ming Medical College and National Research Institute of Chinese Medicine in Taipei, Taiwan. In this instance, the Qigong master alternately sent positive and negative intention to boar sperm cells and human fibroblast cells, which make up the connective tissue of the body."

"It is beneficial in angina because it improves overall oxygen utilization by the heart cells. Simply stated, having enough carnitine in the tissue to metabolize fatty acids efficiently lets the heart do more with less oxygen. Starved heart muscle cells need to utilize their limited oxygen supply more effectively; carnitine helps reduce that demand by allowing the heart to efficiently burn its primary energy fuel, fatty acids. All forms of commercial carnitine have been demonstrated to be useful in treating angina."

"On days when the healers felt really well in themselves, they had a beneficial effect on the bacteria; the counts were higher in the bacteria given the therapy than in the heat-shocked controls. On days when they did not feel so well and they scored lower on the test, they actually had a deleterious effect. Those practitioners who began the healing with diminished well-being actually killed off more bacteria than naturally died in the controls. Evidently, a practitioner's own overall health was an essential factor in his ability to heal."

"Listening to radio talk shows such as NPR, or to books on tape, and watching the news or educational programming are more beneficial ways to spend your down time—at least I hope so! A key factor in the benefit you receive is the type of programming you choose, which is very much in your control."

"Numerous studies have considered the specific types of social interactions and social relationships that are most beneficial. One study following a population of women in Tecumseh, Michigan, from 1967 to 1979 found that the frequency of church attendance was inversely related to mortality and dementia even after other potentially confounding factors such as health, financial status, and gender were controlled for."

"During the periods of apparent "stalemate," in fact, our eyes are accumulating all the positive and beneficial stimuli that give positive results. Until you notice the positive results of clear vision—better focusing until you experience flashes of extremely clear vision?it's very important to keep trusting the system and its physiological mechanisms and persevere in your exercising until the next step. It is also important that you imagine each "step" in your sight improvement. You are to be completely aware of this since you can see better, by day and by night."

"In the opposite case, whenever you feel that an undertaken experience or action isn't beneficial, then you "put your foot down" and resist advocacy for change. Physical symptoms and apparently accidental circumstances are the signs that will take you back to the "right way." The right way is always the way of our heart—whether we are aware of it or not. The heart is the barometer of our feelings and our deepest emotions. When our heart beats strongly because of an emotion, it wants to tell us something."

"The exercises of ocular stretching are surely useful and beneficial for training for focusing at a distance, but the very same principles can be used successfully even in the opposite way, for focusing at a near distance (as it happens with sight worsening)."

"This is the reason why ocular stretching is particularly beneficial for restoring your visual acuity. c. You can fix at a point, carrying out the rotations with your eyes and keep on fixing at a point at the same time. d. In the positions of stretching, the time of keeping each single static position itself determines the level of intensity of the exercise: the more you maintain one position, the more intense the exercise will be and, consequently, the level of muscular contraction (agonist) as well as the level of stretching out and lengthening the muscle that is antagonist to the movement."

"Synthetic progesterones and their metabolites predispose to inflammation in blood vessels, and counteract beneficial effects of estradiol in the brain and heart. Natural progesterone does not. • Synthetic progesterone increases heart-disease risk factors. It increases CRP and LDL (bad cholesterol), and reduces HDL (good cholesterol). Natural progesterone does not. • All large hormone studies (including the WHI study, the Million Women Study, and the HERS study) clearly show an increase in breast cancer when using synthetic progesterone."

"The live bacteria in yogurt displayed a reaction to the death of other types of bacteria, and yogurt even evidenced a desire to be "fed" with more of its own beneficial bacteria. Eggs registered a cry of alarm and then resignation when one of their number was dropped in boiling water. Plants appeared to react in real time to any break in continuity with the living beings in their environment. They even appeared to react at the moment when their caretakers, who were away from the office, decided to return."

"These nano-sized particles of silver are considered more lethal to beneficial and harmful microbes both. The petition asked that the nanoparticles of silver be treated as a type of new pesticide, a regulatory category that would require safety analysis and oversight before products containing them could be released to the public. The FDA had not responded as of this writing."

"What I've found is that the children who pull away most strongly from basketball, volleyball, and soccer are the children for whom these team sports will be the most beneficial. I think that individual sports, such as martial arts, dancing, and singles tennis, are wonderful, but there's no substitute for the cooperation that children learn on the soccer field and on the basketball court. They learn that there will be some days and some games where they're the center of attention and other times when 155 they're expected to be good strong members of the team."

"Apart from relief from side effects, unmedicated children and teens can discover many more beneficial uses of acupuncture, as long as the needles don't frighten them in the first session (because the needles often don't hurt when they are inserted, I know of many children who find the sight of the needles in their skin kind of funny.) When your child goes in for a session, there are many approaches that an acupuncturist may take with him or her. There are some points that alleviate stress."

"Even my medical school professors couldn't possibly 191 argue with things as gentle and beneficial as yoga for a five-year-old, safe herbal therapy for a seven-year-old, or acupuncture for a ten-year-old. The Western medical community has ended the debate over whether Eastern medicine and holistic therapies are effective, and the answer is yes. A few years ago, the Journal of American Medical Association devoted an entire issue to complementary medicine. It talked about herbal treatment, acupuncture, and more."

"Perhaps most beneficial to Jae was that his family installed a basketball hoop in the backyard so that he could shoot hoops after school, and his father began taking him out on weekends and on some weeknights to golf courses and driving ranges, where Jae began to develop a passion for the sport and an even closer bond with his father. Soon after, he joined a soccer team and started getting to know and interacting with a larger group of friends (his teammates) as well."

"Kiawe describes one instincto who dries rabbits in the trunk of his car in order to eat the "beneficial maggots." He also explains his belief that getting sick is actually a body's way of getting healthy. "All illnesses are just cleansing reactions," he says. "It's your body's way of expelling toxins." When Ta brings out a platter of chicken bones, fish ligaments, meat jerkies and other air-dried meats, I'm pretty certain that I don't want to taste any of it. They tear into the food with almost exaggerated pleasure. Kiawe holds a dried chicken out toward me."

"The conclusive discovery of vitamins around the time of WWI marked a decisive shift toward considering raw fruits not only as beneficial, but as necessary. Still, fresh fruits disappeared during the twentieth century's world wars. Canadian families received rations of "raspberry" jam: it was, in fact, sweetened turnips dotted with wood chips to simulate the seeds. Matisse said that fruits were "more expensive than a beautiful woman" during wartime. Grapefruit only caught on in America after the Great Depression, because they could be exchanged for food stamps."

"If he can understand how the proteins in the tomato's skin function, Rose believes he'll have found a way for the beneficial traits we associate with heirloom fruits—high acids, high sugars, great flavor, all the important nutrients—to withstand the rigors of commercial packing. While Rose investigates tough skin, another breeder has been doing ambitious, long-term research that is already significantly enhancing the flavor of our fruits. Floyd Zaiger invented the pluot, that delicious—and immensely successful—plum-apricot hybrid."

"Trans fats harm enzymes including delta-6-desaturase, which converts beneficial dietary fats (see discussion of dietary fats in chapter 9) to forms used by the body. In this way, trans fats can actually escalate essential fatty acid deficits. This is an important but overlooked issue. We ingest fish oils and convert them into health-nurturing substances. But not if we eat trans fats! The same enzymes that convert good fats recognize trans fats as if they were wholesome, allowing them into their receptor sites where they stick and destroy the enzymes."

"However, there is no evidence whatsoever that any creams can reduce or have any beneficial effect on cellulite (5). Advertisements claiming these effects, such as Unilever's New Dove Firming Lotion, or Estee Lauder's much more expensive Body Performance Anti-Cellulite Visible Contouring Serum, are problematic at best (6). 5. Antioxidants. Antioxidants are natural substances that protect our bodies against damage from free radicals."

"AN OVERSUPPLY OF SERVICES AT THE OTHER END OF THE LIFE CYCLE Perhaps the use of invasive cardiac procedures for older patients in the United States is an isolated instance of providing more care than appears to be necessary or beneficial. Not so, as we see from medical care at the other end of the life cycle. Neonatology is the highly specialized field of caring for sick newborns. My colleagues and I were pleased when a full-time neonatologist was added to the staff of our community hospital."

"While titanium oxide and zinc oxide are harmless and beneficial as topical sunblock agents, having those chemicals distributed more deeply throughout our bodies may create unknown health risks. A perceptive article about nanotechnology in The Economist magazine (November 22, 2007) summarized the health concerns associated with their use this way: "Research on animals suggests that nanoparticles can even evade some of the body's natural defence systems and accumulate in the brain, cells, blood and nerves."

"We could speculate about events that had not yet happened, judge whether or not they would be beneficial, consider alternatives and their consequences, and consciously decide on our actions—and hence our futures. A new freedom of choice had been born. We also became aware that our own time had a beginning and an end. We were faced with the inevitability of our death. We wanted to know whether or not we continued after our bodies met their end. Is there an afterlife? Or is this all there is?"

"But in the service of our inner needs, it has been far from beneficial. Unconsciously assuming that these needs can also be satisfied by changing the world around us, we have applied our creative energies and our technologies to the search for more powerful ways of getting what we think we want. As a result, technology has not only amplified our power to change the world, it has also amplified the error in our thinking—with potentially disastrous consequences."

"The opportunities for beneficial variation were very small, and any that did occur were restricted to the descendants of that particular cell. With sexual reproduction, however, two cells came together, shared their inherited genetic information, and produced offspring that possessed a combination of their genes. No longer did it take thousands of generations for just one genetic difference to arise. Differences now occurred in every generation, speeding the rate of arrival of novelty a thousandfold."

"To us, oxygen might seem a most beneficial gas, yet it is a very reactive chemical. Combining readily with many other substances, it can destroy many of the complex molecules on which life depends. To the cells of the time, it was poisonous pollution. After several hundred million years, so much oxygen had accumulated in the atmosphere that it threatened life on Earth. Nature's response was to exploit oxygen's destructive qualities and capture the energy released as oxygen reduced larger molecules into smaller components."

"The most popular beneficial bacteria are lactobacillus acidophilus and bifidobacteria. The latter, bifidobacteria is said to aid in the digestion of milk products. Use a standardized capsule of probiotics. It should be stored in the refrigerator which helps ensure that it is a live culture. Follow the directions on the package. Typical dosage for a probiotic supplement is one to 10 billion cells per capsule. One to three capsules can be taken daily. There are no known side effects from probiotics."

"This is beneficial for those who have diabetes. It helps to reduce sugar cravings, aids in weight loss and lowers blood glucose levels. It also improves muscle mass in those who do strenuous exercise. Typical dosage of chromium is 200 to 400 megs per day with meals. Do not exceed the recommended dose as chromium can be toxic in high doses. N-Acetylcysteine (NAC) and Vitamin C NAC is a sulphur containing amino acid and antioxidant that is useful in reducing inflammation in acute pancreatitis. It helps the liver to detoxify alcohol, tobacco and other environmental pollutants."

"The most popular beneficial bacteria are lactobacillus acidophilus and Bifidobacteria. The latter, bifidobacteria is said to aid in the digestion of milk products. The lactobacilli can be found in fermented foods such as yogurt, miso, tempeh and kefir. Yogurt and kefir are dairy products. They may not be a good choice for those with lactose intolerance. Also in foods, the number of bacteria is not standardized. The bacteria may not be an active culture if they are not stored properly. It is best to use a standardized capsule of probiotics."
