"But that said, the substantial research on the vast majority of ingredients in The Most Effective Natural Cures on earth should cause even the greatest skeptic to consider the possibilities that these noninvasive, gentle treatments could help heal a vast array of conditions and bring health to a vast number of people. So why, you might ask, doesn't my doctor know about these treatments? Ah, grasshopper, that is an excellent question."

"WHY THIS BOOK IS DIFFERENT If there's one thing that sets The Most Effective Natural Cures on earth apart from the spate of other "natural cure" books it's this: research. Let me explain. The major objection the average person is likely to hear from establishment doctors about "natural medicine" is that there's "no good research showing it works." We hear this constantly about vitamins, antioxidants, herbs, and all sorts of non-medical healing traditions (from acupuncture to shamanism)."

"The Best Liver Protection Around SAMe is one of the most liver-friendly molecules on earth. The Life Extension Foundation calls it "serious medicine against liver disease," and I agree. The liver contains a high amount of SAMe, and one of the body's most important antioxidants—glutathione—is synthesized from it. Glutathione is absolutely central to keeping the liver healthy and helping it to do its many jobs, including detoxification. SAMe is seriously depleted in liver disease and has been shown in research to improve liver-function tests. And remember methylation (see page 309)?"

"Another theory is that we humans are one of the few creatures on earth unable to make our own vitamin C; we must obtain it from our diet, and it's found most abundantly in sweet things like fruits. Nature, so the theory goes, gave us a sweet tooth so we would actually desire food without which we wouldn't survive. No matter. We humans love sweet things, probably way too much for our own good. In Paleolithic times, a sweet tooth wasn't much of a problem. (There were no twenty-four-hour supermarkets in the caveman era."

"What on earth Is Jicama? Jicama is a root vegetable that is a staple in Mexican food. In its native habitat, it's sold as a street food in South America, with a squeeze of lime and a bit of fiery chili powder. It's a white-fleshed tuber that can weigh anywhere from half a pound to more than five pounds. Some people have characterized it as a cross between an apple and a potato. It looks like a turnip, has a thin brown skin that you can peel, and its taste is something like an apple but not quite."

"Sachs, director of the earth Institute at Columbia University and of the United Nations Millennium Project. "Our social and economic systems are . . . highly sensitive to climate perturbations," he wrote in the July 2006 issue of Scientific American. "Seemingly modest fluctuations in rainfall, temperature and other meteorological factors can create havoc in vulnerable societies."

"Most of us are experiencing psychic pain, but we are so totally disconnected from die earth as we roll around in our cagelike dino cars, we don't even notice that the disconnect has become more real than the connection. I'm just another angry L.A. driver. I'm pissed at everybody. Sometimes I don't even know why. I look at the long line of cars. I tell myself to be Buddha and not to get caught up in it. But, hey, I am smothered in oil. Ironically, what most people in L.A. don't know is that we live so close to our oil."

"Take away rice, wheat, and corn, and half the people on earth will not eat. (As one researcher pointed out, "Cereal grains literally stand between mankind and starvation.") The dwindling supplies of our natural diet of wild animals and wild plants, together with the huge expansion of the planet's population, made agriculture a necessity for survival. Why Cereal Grains Are a Nutritional Compromise But on the other hand, cereal grains are a nutritional compromise."

"Scientists admit that it is possible that Earth's climate may suddenly cross the critical threshold needed to trigger abrupt climate change at any time, and that the extra "forcing" humans apply to the climate system by emitting large amounts of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere makes this possibility far more likely than it would be otherwise."

"They advise creating a kind of ritual of sacred sexuality, where you (and perhaps a partner) make a point of going outside and "connecting" with the earth. There's no need to head for the mountains: Even a hike in a (relatively) remote urban space can be a way for you to connect—by walking on the earth's "skin." The point is to find a safe place, outdoors, where you feel no danger and can retreat to time and again, to make sensual connections—either in reality or in your mind. The flowers, trees, wind, water and assorted birds in these special places help make the experience sensual."

"It is the size of the earth, rather than its half-gauss pulling power, that makes the earth a powerful, life-sustaining magnetic force. In fact, it is now understood that the magnetic force of the earth is absolute necessity to life and it, along with oxygen, must be appropriately provided if we are to survive long journeys into space. Furthermore, since the magnetic strength of the earth waxes and wanes over millennia, there may be a correlation with the great cataclysmic upheavals that have periodically occurred with the variation of the earth's magnetic power."

"Chevron has done here where we were standing right now in the heart of Midway-Sunset Oil Field in the desert shale of the western ridges of Kern County, could be the future of your home's energy needs. Was he feeling cool? Yes, because he knows the power of solar firsthand. And so does Chevron. It is all about being carbon-neutral, being less toxic—and more profitable. Chevron has not always been an environmental leader."

"This phenomenon would have threatened the survival of all animal species on earth. The fact that we have not seen this happening during the time humans have walked on earth strongly suggests that ALA, in its natural state, is not a cause of cancer. Moreover, it seems unfathomable that the Divine plan of Nature would be so distorted and self-destructive as to allow such a phyto compound, so essential for the sustenance of all life, to be a major contributor to its termination. Flax oil is not known to increase the incidence of prostate cancer, nor does ALA increase prostate cancer incidence."

"It is the frequency the earth emits when there is nothing around—nothing manmade and no plant or animal life around. It is the innate frequency of the earth. The other frequency is closer to 12 HZ. This is the frequency that you will record in a rainforest—again with nothing manmade around. These are the core scalar frequencies that accomplish everything we've talked about in this chapter. What will I notice by using Scalar Enhanced?products?"

"Simultaneously, they represent the active elements—air (paired with space), fire (paired with water), and water (paired with earth)—in Ayurveda's alchemical body-model, and thus are linked to the attributes and affinities of those elements. One further association unites their alchemical and hydraulic roles: they are the less stable, more impure forms of the vital essences, agni, prana, and ojas—understood as the forms in which the elements of air, fire and water exist in living beings."

"Thus, for example, Chinese thinkers recognized five 'elements' (or, more accurately, five types of processes, each of which was represented by an archetypal substance) in the natural world—metal, wood, water, fire, and earth. The Chinese macrocosm correspondingly contained five recognized planets, five climates, five compass directions (the Chinese included 'centre' as well as the cardinal directions), five tastes, and five smells."

"Nature's Ultimate Superfood Marine Phytoplankton is considered to be one of the most powerful foods on earth because it is loaded with high-energy super anti-oxidants, vitamins, minerals and proteins in microscopic form. It is a tiny little plant (about the size of a red blood cell) that naturally grows in the ocean and is the beginning of the food chain where as all other living creatures in the ocean feed on other living things that feed on this little plant."

"Not too long ago, expert scientists believed that the earth was flat and stationary. After all, they saw with their own eyes that the sun "fell off the horizon every evening and "rose" again every morning, although on the opposite side. This undisputable "truth" was difficult to root out because it was a phenomenon that the masses witnessed each and every day. They knew well that the entire natural world depended on sunrise and sunset, the cycles of day and night. Little did they realize that what their eyes saw so clearly was not what was actually occurring."

"Fungi occur in every environment on earth and play very important roles in most ecosystems, including the internal ecosystem of the body. Along with bacteria, fungi are the major decomposers in most terrestrial and some aquatic ecosystems. As decomposers, they play an indispensable role in nutrient cycling, especially as saprotrophs and symbionts, degrading organic matter to inorganic molecules. They become essential when the body accumulates organic waste matter, heavy metals and chemical compounds."

"However, if she had a fragrant odour, it would suggest an affinity for earth. The physician might also look for a failure in one of the organs. To do so, the practitioner would consider the relationship between the visible surface orifices or tissues (like the eyes, skin, or tongue) and their connected pairs of internal organs, as well as the Five Phases associations between organs and, for instance, emotions or seasons. Chinese diagnostics—and equally its Ayurvedic and humoural analogues?involved the active and empirical use of all of the senses, as well as detailed questioning of the patient."

"Indeed, Mesmer also defined animal magnetism as 'the property of the animal body that renders it sensitive to the action of heavenly bodies and of the earth.' Mesmer was convinced that the presence and proper action of the magnetic fluid (like those of qi and ojas) ensured health. Conversely, a sick person might be cured of nervous conditions by the stimulation of his or her mesmeric fluid, or by a dose of the substance transferred to them by an individual super-endowed with animal magnetism, by reason of moral and physical superiority."

"I can trust her more than just about anyone on this earth, because I can always trust that what she says is what she really thinks. My guess is that's why everyone in town is drawn to her." Bee says, "My impression of Grandma Lou is that whatever was dealt to her, she made the best of it. I've seen her worry, but only about something specific like my father's illness. When I think of her, I think about someone who's full of high spirits and who has made a life that delights her. I believe I'll live a lot longer if I live just like her."

"What do the words "caretaker of the earth" mean to you? What metaphors can you use to get the true meaning of this? What is something you can begin to do now to move your creative energy to a place of service and caretaking? Do you nurture more from a place of need or through true, pure love? Can you think of an example of a time when you gave of yourself from a pure and unconditional place? How did you feel afterward? What shifts can you make in your work and life to bring you to a true place of really nurturing others and yourself? How do you feed yourself?"

"The earth does not belong to man; man belongs to the earth. This we know. All things are connected like the blood which unites one family. All things are connected.

"He understood that, ultimately, eating linked us to the earth and its elements as well as to the energy of the sun. "The dinner we have eaten tonight," he told his audience in a 1928 lecture, "was a part of the sun but a few months ago." Industrial food both obscured these links and attenuated them. In lengthening the food chain so that we could feed great cities from distant soils, we were breaking the "rules of nature" at least twice: by robbing nutrients from the soils the foods had been grown in and then squandering those nutrients by processing the foods."

"To eat slowly, in the Slow Food sense, is to eat with a fuller knowledge of all that is involved in bringing food out of the earth and to the table. Undeniably, there are pleasures to be had eating that are based on the opposite—on knowing precious little; indeed, they sometimes depend on it."

"But gardening consists of mental work as well: learning about the different varieties; figuring out which do best under the conditions of your garden; acquainting yourself with the various microclimates—the subtle differences in light, moisture, and soil quality across even the tiniest patch of earth; and devising ways to outwit pests without resorting to chemicals."
