"Who knows what other diseases are lurking, waiting for conditions that will make them epidemic, or what diseases we might inadvertently create through genetic engineering? Moreover, should a new plague appear, we would find that our overenthusiasm for antibiotics has left our bodies weakened and our medical armory poorer. With the passing of time, our vulnerability rises rather than falls. Several bacteria that were once treatable with drugs are developing resistance to every one of our antibiotics."

"He went on to become director of the CDC's viral diseases lab in Fort Collins, Colorado, and the chief virologist at USAMRIID. A straight talker whose short gait, erect posture, and staccato speech reflect his quasi-military assignments, Monath had put Acambis on its research course to develop vaccines for West Nile virus, dengue fever, and Japanese encephalitis. He had to immedi- ately transform Acambis into a manufacturer capable of churning out thousands of gallons of vaccine in short order."

"Meanwhile, researchers at the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious diseases (NIAID), a branch of the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Maryland, assured Thompson the existing federal stockpile of 15 million doses could be stretched to 77 million doses; the old vaccine was highly concentrated, and vials could be diluted to create more vaccinations. All told, Thompson figured he'd get 209 million doses from Acambis plus the extended 77-million stockpile dose, for a total of 286 million inoculations—one for every man, woman, and child in America."

"Not only is the medical community unable to recognize some of these diseases early enough, but the basic science has a long way to go. Researchers are at a loss to explain the mechanisms by which many of the deadly pathogens operate, and why they are more deadly for some people than others. No one knows what makes one strain of strep cause a sore throat and makes another dig deep into our flesh, bringing extraordinary destruction and toxic shock. Did the strep bacteria that killed Jeannie disguise itself so her immune system would not recognize it as infectious?"

"The American Cancer Society investigated the Grape Cure on a number of occasions and never established any proof of it healing cancer or other diseases. Quackwatch.org concludes that it is a book worth ignoring: "There is no scientific evidence that the Johanna Brandt's Grape Cure has any value." Following grapes, there was an unsubstantiated craze for apricot seeds in the 1960s and 1970s. This mania can be traced to reports of the Hun-zas, a remote people living in the Himalayas who were renowned for their longevity, endurance and lack of diseases."

"One of these new diseases is diabetes. An interesting example of this has occurred on the island of Nauru in the South Pacific. For centuries the people, subsisting on a diet composed primarily of bananas, yams, and coconuts, lived totally free from diabetes. Phosphate deposits discovered on the island brought an influx of wealth and a change in lifestyle. The islanders replaced the coconut and yams they had eaten for centuries with foods made from refined flour, sugar, and processed vegetable oils. The result was the emergence of a never before seen disease - diabetes."

"In fact, this white powder is so lacking in vitamins that federal law requires the food factory to add in tiny amounts of certain, isolated vitamins such as B3 to make sure this food doesn't cause obvious nutritional deficiency diseases like beriberi. How refined, milled grains cause nutritional deficiencies This phenomenon is explained well by Dr."

"About one-third of adults were found to have blood levels of vitamin E at levels so low as to increase their risk of cardiovascular diseases. These low levels of vitamin E are normally due to low dietary intakes. People who have difficulties absorbing fat are even more likely to have low levels of vitamin E. For example, people with cystic fibrosis may have low levels of vitamin E because of poor absorption of fats. About one-third of adults were found to have blood levels of vitamin E at levels so low as to increase their risk of cardiovascular diseases."

"About a year ago, out of idle curiosity, I began to question the available evidence on the effectiveness of many of the medications that were being heavily promoted for the "prevention" of various diseases. I asked my wife, who is a professor of cardiology at Emory University, what evidence there was to substantiate the claim that cholesterol causes heart disease and that taking medication to lower cholesterol actually works. She said there was "lots" of evidence. I asked her where it was."

"A typical asthmatic will more than likely have had an early medical history of frequent colds, allergy conditions, sinusitis, hay fever, eczema, bronchial complaints, influenza and low resistance to a range of diseases. This is to be expected if asthma is linked to the immune system, as will be explained later. Having said that, there are plenty of cases where adults have suddenly developed asthma without any prior warning."

"Comparing SierraSil Support to Other Arthritis Treatments Prior to the discovery of the SierraSil mineral compound, the treatment options available for rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, and other joint diseases were pharmaceutical drugs, nutritional supplements such as glucosamine and chondroitin, and, in severe cases of osteoarthritis, surgery and joint replacement. Analgesics (painkillers) are the common drug treatment for arthritis and other joint diseases."

"Probably the oldest form of medical treatment, massage was used by ancient Chinese, Indian and Egyptian cultures to prevent and cure diseases and heal injuries. The ancient Greeks and Romans advocated massage before and after sport, instead of exercise during recuperation from illness, or as a medical treatment for such diverse conditions as melancholia, asthma, digestive problems and even sterility. The Greek father of medicine, Hippocrates, wrote in the fifth century BC, The way to health is to have a scented bath and an oiled massage each day."

"It is not about diseases. Some degenerative disease conditions are discussed, but only for the purpose of showing that they develop when the body has lost its natural balance, or homeostasis, through being deprived of its basic needs. Disease develops when the natural laws of health are broken. We need a thorough understanding and appreciation of those laws. The human body knows how to be healthy. Our job is to supply what it needs to do its job, and not to dictate which conditions it must work on."

"As this continues, toxins are stored in the deeper layers of the tissues where they eventually cause diseases such as arthritis, heart disease, senility, and cancer. After food has been processed in the small intestine and nutrients extracted for use by the body, the remaining wastes are moved to the large intestine, or colon, before being expelled from the body as feces. Fecal matter in bowel movements contains fiber and wastes from the digestion of food. It also contains waste products from cellular metabolism."

"I'm not saying that some drugs don't ever successfully prevent disease or that newly described diseases and syndromes are necessarily invalid, but the fact is that no matter how you look at it, the U.S. (and to a lesser extent other industrialized countries) has a prescription-drug problem. Americans spend twice as much on drugs and take twice as many drugs as those in other industrialized countries yet have the worst health. That means we are paying money for drugs that are not working for us."

"They are very harmful to the human body, but they do their work in such a way that it is hard to connect the weakened immune system and developing diseases with the original or continuing exposure to the real culprit. Evidence and research findings regarding these poisons are now beginning to be made public in spite of industrial and medical attempts to ignore, cover-up, or refuse to look at the facts. Our job is to become informed so that we can protect our own health and the health of our loved ones, our friends, and others."

"The food processing industry has contributed to the increase in asthma in today's society, as well as to other diseases of our time like diverticulitis, gall stones, heart disease, varicose veins, diabetes and constipation, among many others. There is also evidence that hyperactivity in children is related to their diet. If you don't know exactly what is causing your asthma but suspect it is caused by a food, start a food diary. List everything you eat. When you have an attack look at the diary and see if you can link any particular food to previous asthma attacks."

"The logic of many diseases defies explanation by allopathic medical standards but makes perfect sense by TCM, NES, and bioenergetic standards. Driver fields become compromised for all kinds of reasons, from prolonged emotional stress, to exposure to toxins ot pathogens, to genetic defects and chemical imbalances, to your body's misalignment with Earth fields. Energetic Integrators The Energeric Integrators direct and regulate information transfer in the body-field, and by extension among the DNA and cells of the body."

"Scientific literature is clear that stem cells are indeed the basis for every organ, tissue, and cell produced in the human body, and it is possible that stem cells may be able to repair or replace damaged tissue, thereby reversing diseases and injuries such as cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and blood diseases, to name a few. But notice the wording, may be. We just don't know, and neither does Amatokin. Research on adult stem cells, as well as on embryonic stem cells (though the latter is far more controversial), holds great potential."

"University of Virginia Asthma and Allergic diseases Center wrote: "[T]he overwhelming majority of studies demonstrated the capacity for asthmatic subjects to exercise safely and significantly improve their cardiovascular fitness and quality of life . . . the allergy community has placed emphasis on medical therapy and allergen avoidance. ... It is our belief that an exercise prescription should be part of the treatment for all cases of asthma."4 I believe it is important to encourage outdoor play in children as a preventative measure for asthma."
- J. Douglas Bremner, Before You Take that Pill: Why the Drug Industry May Be Bad for Your Health (Get the book.)

"To gain the most market share, companies have to invent drugs for diseases that previously had no treatment (or treat problems that may not necessarily require drug treatment, such as "restless leg syndrome"), or create preventative medications for alleged risks (like the risk of fracture in the elderly) to expand the potential pool of medication takers. That meant moving from the realm of giving medications to sick people to giving medications to people who looked well but might be at an increased risk based on the result of a blood test or some other hidden marker of disease."

- J. Douglas Bremner, Before You Take that Pill: Why the Drug Industry May Be Bad for Your Health (Get the book.)

"We must first be aware of what causes diseases and why they develop. We need to know which foods are good for us and which are harmful. We must become knowledgeable and aware of what strengthens the body and its immune system, and what weakens and breaks it down. We must then take consistent action to assist the body in building health. DON'T GERMS AND VIRUSES CAUSE DISEASE? There is a universal belief that germs and viruses are the cause of disease; but this is not true."
- Ron Garner, Conscious Health: A Complete Guide to Wellness Through Natural Means (Get the book.)

"Diet, heredity, and metabolic diseases influence the level of cholesterol in the blood. There are two components to cholesterol: LDL (low-density lipoprotein) and HDL (high-density lipoprotein). HDLs are often called "good cholesterol" because they perform key functions in the body. LDLs are often called "bad cholesterol" because when they are elevated, they collect on the inside of blood vessel walls, potentially leading to blocked blood vessels, heart disease, and stroke."

"A review of 200 studies demonstrated a 50 percent lower cancer risk in oxidation of free radicals (unstable molecules that damage cells and are believed to contribute to many diseases) than apple extract without the skin. They also found that catechins, when combined with two other phytochemicals in apples, prevented the oxidation of free radicals five times greater than expected. The phenolic phytochemicals in apple peel account for the majority of the antioxidant and antiproliferating activity noted in apples. Eat at least an apple a day to help keep breast cancer away?"

"Do the diseases improve 100 percent of the time? No, they don't. The percentage is much higher now than it used to be. Our success rate now is closer to 80 percent as opposed to the 10 percent we used to see before we understood the importance of electrical current and the need for supplementation during the procedure."

"Miscellaneous There are other symptoms and diseases which just don't seem to fit into a specific category. Fatigue falls into this group and is usually seen along with other symptoms. This will be thoroughly addressed in chapter IV so we won't go into detail here. Another very common problem is that of digestive problems. They can be as mild as indigestion and gas after eating ?especially after a protein meal ?and as severe as ulcers or Crohn's Disease. They normally involve an inability to properly digest protein."

"In 1982 he identified more than two hundred diseases directly attributed to a "deficiency or malnutrition of a single enzyme." For instance, a deficiency in the enzyme G6PD (glucoses-Phosphate Dehydrogenase)—the most common human enzyme deficiency, with some 400 million people worldwide affected (Scriver et al., 1995)—is associated with neonatal jaundice and hemolytic anemia. Some G6PD deficient individuals are also allergic to fava beans (Carson et al., 1956; Beutler, 1994)."
