"The color of his face is gold. While in his towering crown of gems stands a Buddha, two hundred and fifty miles high." 86 In China and Japan this sublimely gentle Bodhisattva is represented not only in male form, but also as female. Kwan Yin of 84 Prajna-Paramita-Hridaya Sutra; "Sacred Books of the East," Vol. XLIX, Part II, p. 148; also, p. 154. 85 Vajracchedika ("The Diamond Cutter"), 17; ibid., p. 134. 86 Amitayur-Dhyana Sutra, ig; ibid., pp. 182-183.

"Jesus taketh Peter, James, and John his brother, and bringeth them up into an high mountain apart, and was transfigured before them: and his face did shine as the sun, and his raiment was white as the light. And, behold, there appeared unto them Moses and Elias talking with him. Then answered Peter, and said unto Jesus, Lord, it is good for us to be here: if thou wilt, let us make here three tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias."

"And the prince bowed down his head for fear and apprehension, and his brow and face were beaded and spangled with sweat; and shame and confusion troubled him sorely. Thereupon his father abused him and reviled him and cried, "Woe to thee, thou son of adultery and nursling of abomination! How durst thou answer me in this wise before my captains and soldiers? But hitherto none hath chastised thee. Knowest thou not that this deed thou hast done were a disgrace to him had it been done by the meanest of my subjects?"

"They are marketing driven and generate a sense of unnecessary need," commented one participant, while another said: "We're not dropping dead; my face isn't rotting off. I'd rather roll the dice than walk around with my armpits stinking." At the end of the day, the whole focus group exercise had a bit of a backfire element to it, in Lexie's view. "After three hours of using their messages, they asked how many people in the room were more concerned now [about cosmetics safety] than when they arrived. Half the people raised their hands."

"At that age there's so much being pushed down their throats about society's idea of beauty — of outer beauty, and having a body like a model and having a painted face. We did not want that to be our idea of beauty," Max said, so they chose to sell hair products and body wash rather than makeup. "We decided beauty was cleanliness and being confident in yourself and being excited about how you look, not because you look like a model but because you wear clothes that express your style, and you wear your hair in a way that expresses yourself and makes you feel good about yourself," explained Max. "

"I looked for phthalates, looked for phthalates, looked for phthalates," up and down the shampoo section, deodorant, face cream and makeup sections. She went cross-eyed trying to make out tiny words on nail polish bottles. There, she found what she was looking for. More than half the nail polishes had the phthalate DBP listed on the labels. Jane went back to the office with some samples of DBP-containing nail polish and a big question: The CDC researchers had said in their paper that phthalates were in a wide range of cosmetics; why was she finding them only in nail polish?"

"With such a profound result, the CTFA recognized the opportunity for its industry to help more women maintain self-esteem and face cancer treatment with greater confidence." The American Cancer Society enthusiastically joined the effort along with the National Cosmetology Association, and "Look Good ... Feel Better" flourished across the nation, with programs now in all 50 states. There is even a "Look Good ... Feel Better for Teens" program for cancer patients ages 13 to 17 — a growing demographic since childhood cancer rates have been increasing."

"See Zimmer, Myths and Symbols in Indian Art and Civiliza- APOTHEOSIS wall of the pairs of opposites is shattered and the candidate admitted to the vision of the God, who when he created man in his own image created him male and female. In the male's right hand is held a thunderbolt that is the counterpart of himself, while in his left he holds a bell, symbolizing the goddess. The thunderbolt is both the method and eternity, whereas the bell is "illumined mind"; its note is the beautiful sound of eternity that is heard by the pure mind throughout creation, and therefore within itself."

"Focus on your face. Scrunch your face, and hold for eight seconds. Release the tension, and relax for fifteen seconds. Mentally scan your entire body, and note any area that still feels tense. Focus on that area, tense the muscles, and hold for eight seconds. Release the tension, and relax for fifteen seconds. When you are done, take several slow, deep breaths, and open your eyes. The beneficial impact of progressive muscle relaxation on glucose levels and Hb A, levels has been demonstrated in varilc ous studies."

"And yet, with all the research that demonstrates the wisdom and benefits of plant-based nutrition, its growing ranks of proponents still face a formidable array of opponents, from the titans of the animal food industry to the medical establishment itself. My colleague Dean Ornish succinctly sums up the dilemma faced by those of us who believe in this healthy way of eating: "I don't understand why asking people to eat a well-balanced vegetarian diet is considered drastic, while it is medically conservative to cut people open." Well said. 12 B~ _ _ _ ..."

"So many men don't employ chemical peels or other methods to get rid of wrinkles, this technique which takes only a few extra seconds to employ when saving the face is most certainly better than the proverbial nothing. Facelifts On TV villains and heroes have facelifts with the ease and speed one might associate with a shave at the local barbershop. The work is done quickly and smoothly, the bandages removed, and there's a face with no swelling, scarring, or discoloration. Unfortunately things are not quite that easy in real life. At least not with the traditional facelift."

"As I prepare to push the door open, my hands spontaneously fly up in front of my face! They literally pop up in front of me! I stare in wonder at them. Suddenly, I consciously realize, "My hands! This is a dream! I'm dreaming this!" I look around me, amazed that I am aware within a dream. All around me is a dream. Incredible! Everything looks so vivid and real. I walk through the doors a few feet toward the administration building while a great feeling of euphoria and energy wells up inside. As I stop and look at the brick wall, the dream seems a bit wobbly."

"These stressors are rarely as life threatening as a car collision, but we can feel so anxious and overwhelmed in the face of them that the body really can't tell whether it's dealing with an actual emergency or not. Unfortunately, it just doesn't take very much to switch on the stress response. A deadline crunch or having a spat with your mother can both trigger it into overdrive. Cortisol plays a central role in the immune system's responses and activity."

"His face grew ashen and tight. I tried to comfort him, repeating a made-up acronym I sometimes used to soothe my children, hoping it would do the trick again. "Remember? My love for you is very FINE—it is Forever, Infinite, Neverending, and Everywhere you go." We lay side by side, my words all I had to embrace him with as I struggled to hide my own panic. Why was I losing muscle control in my arms as well as my legs? Within twenty-four hours, my breathing became shallow and short. It was clear I was facing something other than a back problem."

"I had seen my hands literally fly up to face level in my dreams as if propelled by some magical force and I realized, "This is a dream!" At the age of sixteen, I had become conscious in the dream state. And suddenly, like Dorothy in Oz, I was not in Kansas any more. Well, actually, I was in Kansas for another year, until I left for college. The Paradox of the Senses My first lucid dream felt like a monumental achievement. I had actually become aware in a dream."

"He looks at me, then his face registers surprise as I fly right past him, higher and higher into the night sky and beyond to the gray dark outer space. After a while of flying deeper and deeper into the darkness, I stop and ask the dream to show me something important to see . . . A day later, at 4 a.m. on August 14, our small cat uncharacteristically jumped right on my stomach and woke me up. I played with the cat for a moment and tried to get it to lie down and sleep, but it refused to lie down and kept rubbing me. A few minutes later, the bedside phone rang, and I thought, "Dad has died."

"For example, one highly controversial study suggested that people who consume high amounts of vitamin A may face an increased risk of certain illnesses. Vitamin E has also been the source of recent controversy. Figuring out what is salient and solid research is not easy—which is why it's so important to work with a health-care professional who stays completely up to date on the latest data on food and supplements as medicine. ESSENTIAL FATTY ACIDS. There are two families of essential fatty acids, or EFAs: omega-3 and omega-6."
- Donna Jackson Nakazawa, The Autoimmune Epidemic (Get the book.)

"Even those who have no genetic susceptibility to autoimmunity will find that their immune systems flail in the face of a high enough dose of a toxic compound. They may not get autoimmune disease, but another disease—perhaps cancer, perhaps something else—will set in. But for those with a genetic vulnerability to autoimmunity, even a small dose may trigger disease, creating a cellular mayhem in which the body begins to destroy its own blood, tissue, nerves, and organs. And this is what concerns researchers the most."

"I see the shape of the face and the color of the eyes. I look at him exactly as I would if I were going to try and remember each detail for a painting.8 Feeling the lucid dream might be precognitive, the lucid dreamer woke and "decided to type out his dream, date it, and seal it in an envelope." Weeks later, he learned Suzanne had delivered a healthy baby boy. When the lucid dreamer visits her with the sealed envelope, he discovers: "The experience was like a deja vu. I walked into a darkened room, just as I had in the dream."

"Merck's tagline for recent radio ads was "Merck, where patients come first," a theme the company undoubtedly wanted to emphasize in the face of hundreds of lawsuits from patients who suffered heart attacks from its painkiller Vioxx. Direct-to-consumer advertising has been a spectacular success, boosting sales and stock prices beyond the dreams of the early drug marketers. Every dollar the pharmaceutical industry spends on consumer ads generates $4.20 in increased sales. That's a better return on investment than that of the fast food industry, which spends about as much on advertising."

"I'm not really sure that's justifiable nowadays with the looming water shortage we face. 4. A good water filter is your best bet, but keep in mind that a good filter will cost more than $29.95 or even $100. To find one that will truly clean your watet and remove parasites, you will need to pay $250-$300. • Drink 8-12 glasses of pure water a day. • When possible, use glass to hold your water, not plastic. Absolutely avoid drinking water that has a strong plastic smell or taste. • Apply a magnetic field to your water for at least 20 minutes (depending on how large your bottle is)."

"The idea was to slam the door in the cancer's face by removing every last possible tumor cell in the vicinity of the primary tumor. But this was based on an incorrect view of cancer, which can spread to the rest of the body via the blood and the lymphatic system, even when the tumor is still quite small. Clinical trials would finally show that lumpectomy with radiation was just as effective as mastectomy, and far less traumatic for many women."

"Hospitals have been called the modern equivalent of Renaissance cathedrals, which were important commercial centers as well as places of solace and hope in the face of death. That would make Johns Hopkins the Vatican of hospitals, the site of some of the most significant milestones in modern medicine, including the development of the radical mastectomy, open-heart surgery on blue babies, and kidney dialysis."

"His face is craggy, with bristling brows and gray hair curling around his ears. With big, beefy hands, he looks more like a gentleman rancher than a maverick medical researcher. At the top of a ridge we stop, our breath coming fast, to look out over the rolling hills and compact houses of Lyme, New Hampshire, which is not unlike one of the dozens of small towns Wennberg visited during his research in Vermont. I ask him why doctors deliver so much medical care that is useless and even harmful. "Most doctors don't know they are doing it," he says. "

"In about an hour, Alisa gradually cycled-out and grew still, and then suddenly fell asleep, as Liza stroked her face. As the plane quieted, people were still buzzing about them, and seemed to want some of their words to be overheard, out of either anger, or genuine concern. Some of the words Liza still remembers were, "a good spanking," "overpower a child," "abuse," "crazy," "spoiled rotten," and "little brat." Liza lifted Alisa's head to her lap. Humiliated, frightened, Liza began to cry, but wouldn't allow herself to make a sound."

"Patches of scaly skin grew on his soft face. He no longer wanted to play. He was always tired and congested, irritable-not himself. Lynne told herself that she would have to wait a little longer for the easier days. One evening, a couple of weeks after the immunizations, while waiting for Paul's latest bout with a cold-bug to end, Lynne took him to the window and started to play a familiar game, in which she would point at something and say, "I see a /^"-prompting Paul to repeat "tree." "I see grass" she said. But Paul didn't seem interested. "I see the sky" No response. "I see car-car."

"I looked over at Lisa, but her eyes were lost in her daughter's face. They stayed that way for quite some time. We all sat there quietly, just enjoying life. Alisa, 2006 Alisa was skating in the Rockefeller Center ice rink, as television cameras filmed her. They were shooting a documentary about kids who'd made remarkable recoveries from autism and ADHD. Alisa's movements were fluid and beautiful-full of rhythm and power-and when she executed a perfect waltz-jump, Liza clapped spontaneously. Alisa's recovery had finally hit high gear when we'd knocked out her PANDAS."

"Kabat-Zinn's 1990 introduction to his method in Full Catastrophe Living: Using the Wisdom of Your Body and Mind to face Stress, Pain, and Illness has now been in print through twenty-six printings and a fifteenth-anniversary edition was released in 2005.46 Throughout these developments, Kabat-Zinn remained committed to his original strategy: downplay the Eastern exoticizing side of these techniques and invite patients instead to discover their practical value for themselves through personal experience."

"The dilemma we face is that Coumadin is a vitamin K antagonist, and when vitamin K levels fall, the propensity for arterial damage increases. Obviously, we don't want this to happen to our patients. Thus, we are concerned about the long-term use of Coumadin, especially since doctors usually tell patients to take the medication for the rest of their lives. We believe that our patients should protect themselves by getting enough vitamin K in their diet. If you include vitamin K foods in your diet and you are on Coumadin, just try to maintain a steady intake of those particular foods."

"No medical drug can All about the Niacin Flush A tingly, pins-and-needles, sometimes hot, flushing of the skin primarily on the face, arms, and chest is common when you take niacin. It can occur initially at doses as low as 50 mg a day. The flush begins in the forehead and works its way down the body. The higher the initial dose the greater is the initial flush. The intensity of the flush is minimized by taking the pills after meals. Niacin causes small blood vessels-called capillaries—to increase in size."
