"Think about all of the auto tires on the road that are spinning off cadmium in their wheels as they wear down, all the 50,000 chemicals in the environment that weren't there 50 years ago. We are all being exposed to toxins. Dr. Davis from England has shown that these gradually and insidiously accumulate in our systems with every decade that we live. So we have to face the strong likelihood that this toxic buildup is interfering with our enzyme function."

"It is estimated that up to 90 percent of all diseases could be eliminated if we understood the role that nutrition, environment, and lifestyle play. Now that we have the evidence, the question is, why haven't the medical community, the educational community, and the media advocated that we implement it? One of the problems is that once a physician has been trained in a particular area of specialization in a particular way, for that physician to relinquish his or her mind-set and embrace a new paradigm of knowledge is not an easy process."

"If we go to sleep with a sound going on, like a fan, the noise will grab our attention, wiping out all the other sounds we are accustomed to as part of our environment. That is called masking and when it happens, it creates anxiety. To overcome this, we try to structure the world in a way that we've found in the past has given us stability. We create a world from our past experiences that we know will help us to face the unknown. That is the masking phenomena. The world gets covered over with a mask and then we project a set of ideas or a structure formation in order to make sense of the world."

"At issue here is a patient's connectedness, or lack of it. "We are talking about this on a level of disconnection," says Dr. Gentile. "The person's own response to their illness, once contracted, that's disconnected if they cannot develop higher ways of understanding how their life has lead them to this point of illness. If they view their illness as the outside superimposed in?I caught a germ"?that's typical disconnected, linear, analytic thinking, very much the way our medical sciences approach problems. They're on to traditional medicine, doing lots of tests and finding nothing."

"Consciously Take Time To De-Stress Exercise Laugh Sleep APPENDIX B How to Reduce the Estrogens in Your environment he following list can help you to take action to reduce the effect of environmental estrogens in your life: • Because some plastics shed xenohormones when heated, assume that they all do, and protect yourself accordingly. Don't drink hot beverages from plastic cups and don't drink water from a plastic bottle that has been left in the sun or in a hot car. • Don't microwave your food or drinks in plastic containers; avoid using plastic wrap to cover food in the microwave."

"However, if you are in a work situation where you are constantly being exposed to toxic fumes or if your home is located near a toxic waste dump, the chances that your environment is contributing to your condition of estrogen dominance is even greater. Environmental estrogen, or xenoestrogen (pronounced "ZEE-no-estrogen"), can be found in pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, plastics, fuels, car exhausts, dry cleaning chemicals, industrial waste, and meat from animals that have been fed estrogenic drugs to fatten them."

"Meatless eating often costs less, helps the environment (some would argue), and confers health advantages. "Besides reducing the saturated fat content of your diet because you aren't eating animal fats, there are other benefits to a meatless day or two each week," says Julie Upton, MS, RD, with the Environmental Nutrition newsletter. According to Upton, vegetarian diets are lower in total fat, saturated fat, and cholesterol, plus they include more of the beneficial nutrients found in plant foods, like vitamins A and C, potassium, fiber, and phytonutrients like beta-carotene and lycopene."

"Rodriguez reported nine sterility failures and bacterial contamination in the facility environment, its equipment, and raw materials from 2001 to 2003. "In five instances, the bacteria were identified as Propkmibacterium acnes, Staphylococcus and Bacillus pumilus. The Propionibacterium was found in environmental samples of the manufacturing areas, in the equipment and in one of the raw materials. Bacillus pumilus, was found repeatedly in environmental samples of the manufacturing areas."

"If that is released into the environment, the immense wealth it will generate at first for its creators will be matched only by starvation on an unthinkable scale—right here in North America. For us wheat is what rice is for Asia. But not all business is created equal. Some of the largest producers of packaged food listen to the consumer, as good businessmen should. However, as the biotech bosses see it, if the consumer objects and is not lulled into compliance by the propaganda of advertising, brute force is next."

"The relevant passages from the May 2000 Standing Committee on environment and Sustainable Development of the Government of Canada. This report resulted in the new national Pesticide Act, which became law in December 2002, and served as one of the basis for the Supreme Court's 2001 Hudson Decision. Significance: This report established the benchmark of the internationally agreed-upon scientific facts about the nature and extent of harm pesticides, herbicides and fertilizers do."

"In addition, we live in a mental and emotional environment filled with messages of stress and death from the media, including news of constant wars and terrorism infecting the planet. The degenerate conditions, lifestyle, and diet that create diabetes emanate from these modern human-created realities, which, taken together, we are calling the Culture of Death. The cure, on the most profound level, is to move away from a global and personal Culture of Death, to embrace the Culture of Life."

"You will likely become distracted by random thoughts, sounds in your environment, an itch or ache, or perhaps even odors. Mindfulness is about treating these distractions as though you were an objective observer, watching or being mindful of the distraction but letting it go by without allowing it to upset or affect you. In this way, you stay in the moment and maintain calm and harmony. Meditation not only improves your ability to handle stress; it also lowers blood pressure, reduces heart rate, and improves mood. It's a stress-management tool that can be used by just about anyone."

"STAGE 1: ENERVATION Enervation is the reduction of nerve energy, by which the body's normal maintenance and eliminative functions are impaired, especially in terms of the elimination of endogenous and exogenous toxins, those created from within (through normal metabolic processes) and from without (in modern times including the 65,000 human-made toxins in our environment, and the excitotoxins, food additives, and toxins created by the cooking and processing of food)."

"Our programs embody the essence of the Culture of Life: they encourage connection with all aspects of Self and environment while fostering spiritual development and connection with the Divine. Our programs also promote sustainability and address your health and that of our planet on a foundational level. At the Tree of Life Rejuvenation Center, we are sensitive to people who are transitioning into the Culture of Life and provide guidance to support a positive and uplifting experience."

"Inherited genetics unaffected by environment accounts for less than 5 percent of cancers. Q: I eat a good diet and take vitamins, yet I feel tired all the time, even when I first wake in the morning. I date a man who's seven years older than I am, but he has ten times more energy. How can I adjust my diet and vitamin D so I have more energy? A: A dominant symptom of vitamin D deficiency is fatigue. The amount of vitamin D in a daily vitamin (400 IU) is typically not enough to normalize your blood level. Following the guidelines for replacement in chapter 5 may give you more energy."
- James Dowd and Diane Stafford, The Vitamin D Cure (Get the book.)

"This occurred in the protected environment of the uterus. After you were born, during your preschool years, you got every little cold or virus that came along, but your immune system was getting some heavy-duty instruction on things to defend against. Vaccinations, too, "schooled" your immune system. So as the years passed, illnesses and immunizations helped your body's immune system begin to develop memories of what was body-friendly and what was body-menacing. The players in this process are the immune system's white blood cells—M-cells, T-cells, and B-cells."

"Although your genes were set at birth and don't change during the course of your lifetime, what many people don't realize is that literally everything you do as well as everything you are exposed to in your environment influence the expression of your genes. That means your genes are expressed—literally turned on and turned off—by what you eat and how much, your level of physical activity, your use of nutraceuticals and/or pharmaceuticals, and the level of stress you encounter every day and how you cope with it."

"The reality is that most of us learned our subconscious habits in an environment that was a mixed bag. Some of the beliefs that were so deeply instilled within us have led to positive and healing ways to deal with life's tests. Others have done just the opposite. Finding Your Subconscious Beliefs Our positive beliefs seldom become a problem. We just don't hear people complaining about too much joy or being overcome by too many good things happening in their lives. It's the negative patterns that lead to the problems."

"Nerve damage to the eyes can make the pupils less responsive to light, which has negative effects on how people see at night or in any dark environment (see "Retinopathy and Other Vision Problems" in this chapter). Proximal Neuropathy Proximal (or lumbosacral plexus) neuropathy affects the nerves in the thighs, hips, and buttocks, usually on one side of the body only. The nerve damage causes weakness and pain in the legs that typically worsen as the condition progresses, making it very difficult for people with the neuropathy to rise from a seated position without assistance."

"By the end of the program her thinking, which had been slower, became clearer and more connected to the environment. By the end of the program her FBS was 87 and has remained in the 80s for more than a year, shown at our one-year follow-up, with an HgbAlc level of 5.5. CLIENT 8 Type-2 diabetes was diagnosed for this 55-year-old two months after her last baby was born, thirty-five years ago. She came to us with an average FBS of 300, and was using four doses of oral hypoglycemic medications each day. On day one, she eliminated her use of oral hypoglycemics, and achieved an FBS of 105."

"Your job as parent is to monitor your children's environment so that this trigger never gets pulled. Prevention Is the Best Cure It's an old cliche that still rings true today: Prevention is the best cure for many of the problems that are threatening our children's futures. With some knowledge, and a few proactive measures, we can go a long way toward preventing our children from ever falling victim to these health problems. That's the goal of this book: to teach you, the parent, how to take control of your children's health."

"Later, in a safe environment, we can look back and explore what may have caused our "inner alarm" to sound. When we do, it's not uncommon to find that our beliefs have been sparked by something beyond the emotions of love or fear that create our typical feelings. That something is the power of what many people simply call the vibes of body truth, body resonance, or just plain resonance. In its simplest form, resonance is an exchange of energy between two things. It's a two-way experience, allowing each "something" to come into balance with the other."

"But there are now so many factors in the environment that mimic our natural hormones, and there's only so much adaptation our body's metabolic machinery can provide." To maximize their fertility, couples should make an effort to reduce contact with any agents, like PCBs (see page 39) that might alter their hormones. Parents-to-be should also start asking more questions about how fertility treatments work."

"The reason for using a preventive lens is to modify your visual environment so as to mitigate or completely remove all the near stimuli. Doing so will lead to a reduction of accommodative stress. And, of course, accommodation stress is recognized as the cause of the gradual development of myopia. Most existing scientific studies on the use of positive lenses for preventing and reducing myopia were conducted using bifocal lenses."

"Joel Fuhrman put the issue bluntly when he said, "I believe that the biggest exposure our cells get to the environment is through food. It's normal for the body to be exposed to some degree of toxic and carcinogenic materials," he went on, "because a body that's well nourished has the ability to detoxify toxic compounds and move them out of the system." Malnourished bodies lack that ability, which is one reason we're seeing so many diseases in childhood. "I think the most dangerous things to feed children," Dr."

"He tried to fit in at public school, but almost every day he came home crying, because the work and the environment over- ?whelmed him. He would try to focus, but his mind would fly away, and soon he'd be in trouble. He sometimes had panic attacks so severe that his teacher wanted to rush him to the emergency room. Mary knew that wouldn't solve anything, though, and would just drive up their stack of bills even higher, so she would take him home, and calm him down. Sometimes in school he was dreamy and lost, and sometimes he was loud and selfish. He had no friends."

"Genes load the gun, and environment pulls the trigger." However, even most children who have genetic vulnerability would probably still be able to remain healthy, if they were not exposed to mercury. This is apparent from two revealing studies of large groups of children who did not get vaccinated, and remained free from regressive autism. One group was that of the Pennsylvania Amish, who don't vaccinate their children for religious reasons. Over many years, they have had virtually no incidence of autism."

"Therefore, the increased presence of mercury, from the environment and vaccinations, has robbed many children of this protective process. My colleagues and I have learned how to restore it, though, and to help kids once again experience what I call the miracle of methylation. These four catastrophic changes created a veritable perfect storm of physical and neurological insult, which struck hardest at our society's most vulnerable members: our children. Adults have suffered, too, as is apparent in the rising rates of cancers linked specifically to toxins, such as bladder cancer and lymphoma."

"Woodstock is a great environment for innovation. Liza drove straight to their hotel, and got a shock. She'd reserved a room with a refrigerator in it, because Alisa needed special foods, as do many kids with problems like hers. The desk clerk, though, said that Bill had called and that there'd been some confusion about paying extra for a refrigerator. Long story short, the reservation had been canceled. Liza shifted into overdrive and found another room with a refrigerator, but by then some of the food had spoiled. They had to eat at a restaurant, and that was always dicey."

"There was an impressive "Corruption Reporting Box" in the lobby of each government building; some of the old rascals were being investigated; the new government had installed longtime (and long-suffering) environmental activist Wangari Maathai as vice minister for the environment and promised a sweeping cleanout of Kenya's notorious kleptocracies. We were here to help them find an alternative way of doing business in the coffee sector. The project came about in a serendipitous manner."
