"Standing up straight with feet shoulder-width apart, starting with your hands, clench all your muscles tight (hands to arms to shoulders to neck to jaw then clenching stomach to legs to feet) and hold for a count of 3. Release, bending forward into a shrug until you are completely limp. Repeat. Force a laugh of exasperation (Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha! Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha!) so that you sound like a sinister character in a movie. Close your eyes for a full minute, picture the ocean with waves crashing, and imagine pieces of the stress being cracked as each wave breaks hard against the sand."

"The daily tides rise two to three feet and a hot southerly wind, called the sitocco, can push another three feet of Adriatric seawater northward toward Venice. In addition, the sea pitches back and forth in the long narrow Adriatic, like the seesaw of water in a bathtub, adding yet another two feet at its peak. Throw in an extra 3Vi inches from the melting of the polar ice caps during the last century and there is an easy eight feet of water just waiting to spill over the city. On that November day in 1966, a rise of about 6Vi feet pushed water in and over Venice."

"When he showed me the soles of his feet, it was the worst looking set of feet I have ever observed." Mark made some GOOT, put it in a small jar, and gave it to Dan. He told him to keep the bottle in the refrigerator (shelf life of about 30 days) and put a little on his feet every day. Two weeks later he met Dan again. "He took off his socks to show me what looked like a magical transformation—both the fungal infection and the plantar warts were completely gone. He had what looked like a brand new set of feet, totally normal in color and appearance."

"Supplying at least twenty-five cubic feet per minute of outside air per stylist, continuously, as recommended by industrial hygienists, notably the American Society of Heating, Refrigeration, and Air-Conditioning Engineers, • Fitting each manicure table with a commercially available downdraft vapor extraction exhaust system, with a capacity of at least 235 cubic feet per minute, in order to reduce the levels of volatile nail products in the air. • Requiring stylists to wear latex or vinyl gloves, and also dust masks when working with nail powders or buffing artificial nails."

"The exposed underside was a gnarled tangle of roots, dirt, rocks, and plant life, about eight to ten feet across. I realized for the first time how rigid my views of "earth" and "tree" had been. Earth was one thing, and trees were another. That morning I could see how wrong my thinking had been. Earth was tree, and tree was the earth. Earth, which moments ago had seemed so solid and distinct—the very ground beneath my feet—was actually a wild mix of stones, dead plants, and more. That fallen tree would soon be the earth. And the earth was not solid."

"Over time, some of the tissues and nerves of her legs become irretrievably impaired, her right kneecap slips off center, and her ankles and feet become paralyzed. She suffers with dignity for years, until one night, inexplicably, she hears a voice telling her she can be healed. The next day her legs begin to feel prickly and warm. She is astonished to find she can wiggle her toes. As she examines her legs, she notices that her right knee is no longer deformed. She throws off her braces and stands."

"In addition to obesity, the Prader-Willi syndrome is characterized by hypotonic musculature, mental retardation, hypogonadism, short stature, and small hands and feet (for review, see [52, 53]). Aberrant behavior, including hyperphagia and aggressive food seeking, makes management of these patients difficult. The better known of the autosomal recessive Mendelian obesity syndromes are the Bardet-Biedl syndromes (BBS1-BBS8) and the Alstrom syndrome (ALMS 1)."

"Once through the small intestine (which is approximately twenty-three feet in length), the food finally enters the large intestine. This organ is basically responsible for absorbing water and electrolytes. Much of this process is the body reabsorbing what it has provided in the way of gastric juices. The large intestine is also home to a number (possibly hundreds) of different kinds of bacteria that live off of some of the foods (primarily fibrous foods) that have made it this far without being digested."

"As a result, the joints in the hands, feet, and/or arms become extremely painful, stiff, and eventually deformed. Enzyme therapy has been used to treat arthritis for many years, particularly because of the ability of certain enzymes to reduce inflammation. Enzymes also improve circulation, support tissue repair, and improve nutrient absorption and pH balance to improve overall health of the body's tissues."

"Circulation can become a severe problem, leading to various problems in the feet and legs, including a greater risk of gangrene as a result of a foot injury. Recommendations include management by a physician to maintain normal glucose levels. Vitamins, minerals, and supplementation with animal enzymes from glandular sources (even actual pancreas tissue) may help prevent complications. Enzyme therapy can improve the body's ability to digest and absorb glucose, improve circulation, maintain normal absorption of fats, and balance the body's pH levels."

"Ringworm on general areas of the body (arms, legs, trunk) is called tinea corporis; ringworm on the scalp is called tinea capitis; ringworm in the grain area is called tinea cruris (also called jock itch); and ringworm on the feet is called tinea pedis (or athlete's foot). Ringworm typically appears as itchy, red, raised, scaly patches of skin that may blister and ooze. The patches often have sharply defined edges that are redder than in the center, which creates the appearance of a ring. The skin may also appear unusually dark or light."

"In Sardinia, where grapes grow at 4,000 feet above sea level, there are more centenarians per 100,000 people than almost any other culture. As I like to say, if you drink red wine, you'll be fine! COFFEE,TEA-OR CHOCOLATE? Whether or not you enjoy a glass of wine with dinner, I suspect you do like chocolate. If so, here's some really good news. The phytochemicals, particularly EGCG in cocoa, act much the same way that other plant toxins do and their consumption similarly follows a hormetic curve. Does that mean you can gobble up milk chocolate guilt free? No way."

"As for Chip, he recently took his kids hiking in the local mountains at 8,000 feet and ran them into the ground. SPRINT, DON'T RUN LONG On the other hand, short, fast hursts of speed would have proved essential when our forefathers needed to catch a wounded animal or sprint to the nearest tree before being gored by a wild boar. Other than that, slow and steady wins the race. My advice: If you run or walk long, go slow; if you run or walk short, go fast. There is even more benefit here than meets the eye."

"It sounded reasonable to me, because Bone Driver bioenergetically affects calcium metabolism, 196 which will in turn affect all muscle tissues, and it combines three acupuncture meridians through which energy flows from the feet toward the head over the front of body, so it directs energy to the heart. She told me that after her husband had taken Bone Driver for only two days the swelling of his heart went down, to the point where he could get out of bed and function again, walking around and such. Everybody was amazed at his recovery, which his physicians had not expected."

"You can feel the sand under your feet. "Aaahhh" you know the feeling. You look out over the water, and it's magnificent—a cerulean blue with the sunlight dancing on it. The sky is clear with a few white puffy clouds skipping along the horizon. Children are going happily by. Birds are singing and soaring about. It is heaven on earth. You lie back on your lounge chair and say, "I deserve it" You draw in a deep breath and relax. It feels so great. You want to go in the water, so you get up lazily and wade into the water, and it's delightful. Maybe you splash and swim around a little."

"During one ice climb up Ben Nevis, a piton came loose and Harry fell thirty feet. Despite being shaken and in pain, he continued the climb. It was not until five years later, during an X-ray examination, that he discovered he had fractured his back, probably during that fall. Another time, while paraglid-ing, his wing partially collapsed and he was in free fall over the rugged English coast. A classic English castle was perched halfway up the cliff, and Harry was headed straight fot it."

"His hands and feet were no longer perpetually cold, his allergies disappeared, and his mental clarity returned. In fact, Harry felt he was in better shape than he had been even in his healthy, pre-CFS days. Today, Harry likes to caution people that he and Peter often took much larger doses of those prototype Infoceuticals than are recommended with the new, more refined, and hence more effective Infoceuticals. Healing reactions are not universal, especially not to the severity of those Harry experienced."

"Symptoms of dehydration can include: headaches, irritability, impatience, restlessness, insomnia, dry skin, loss of appetite, constipation, unexplained weight gain, and swollen hands and/or feet from water retention. The gradual loss of water in the body is one factor of aging which contributes significantly to wrinkles. Water requirements vary according to body size, physical activity, air temperature, and sweating. It is generally recognized that a normal body requires about eight glasses of water each day, or about one half ounce for every pound (33 ml per kilogram) of body weight."

"Ordinary enemas only reach the last eight to twelve inches of the bowel; whereas colonics reach the entire five to six feet of the colon. Colonics are essentially large-volume enemas, using many gallons (or liters) of water at each session to gently and thoroughly cleanse the entire large intestine. Water is injected through a tube that has been inserted into the rectum, several ounces (100 ml or so) at a time, and then allowed to be expelled, carrying wastes from the colon with it. This procedure is usually carried out by a colon therapist and lasts from 30-60 minutes."

"Such interference is linked to low body temperature, cold feet, disturbed emotions and behavior, and suicidal tendencies. žInterferes with enzyme function, digestion, and assimilation. Can increase blood pressure. Is linked to fertility problems in both males and females. Each of the metals that compose mercury amalgams is poisonous, but they also react in combination to form more toxic products. Dr. Huggins states that the new high-copper amalgams (about 30% copper) release mercury 50 times faster than the older conventional amalgams."

"It is larger in diameter than the small intestine, and is approximately 4 to 6 feet in length. It performs two functions: absorbs fluids and minerals, and stores fecal matter until it is evacuated from the body via the rectum and anus. Between the small and large intestines is a sphincter valve called the ileocecal valve, which regulates the outflow of material from the small intestine and prevents backflow. The appendix is located at the beginning of the colon."

"I gave him a large piece of paper, four feet by three feet. I had him draw a wall of equal-sized bricks. "What is this?" he asked. "It's your structure." We had spent a lot of time exploring the beliefs and agreements that were holding him back. He told me that when he was a boy, his father would frequently come home intoxicated, hours after he was supposed to be home. His dad would miss dinners, school plays, and kids' baseball games. When he finally did come home, everyone was angry at him. His dad took refuge in Cameron's room. 'You're my boy, aren't you?"

"Although Lynn was 6 feet tall, fat still constituted more than 51 percent of her weight. Her story and appearance screamed metabolic syndrome! Lynn's lab work confirmed that she was insulin resistant, and her triglycerides were a whopping 182. As with most of my patients, her various doctors had told her that her cholesterol of 128 was spectacularly low because of the statin drugs they were giving her, but they hadn't bothered to mention that her HDL was 33, which is dangerously low."

"The heavens opened and Mount Sinai, freed from the earth, rose into the air, so that its summit towered into the heavens, while a thick cloud covered the sides of it, and touched the feet of the Divine Throne. Accompanying God on one side, appeared twenty-two thousand angels with crowns for the Levites, the only tribe that remained true to God while the rest worshiped the Golden Calf. On the second side were sixty myriads, three thousand five hundred and fifty angels, each bearing a crown of fire for each individual Israelite."

"In most salons, the stylist sits opposite the client on one side of a small table, and sculpts and files nails about one to two feet below her face. During this time, both clients and stylists are exposed to this EMA vapor and dust. Salon employees sometimes wear simple cotton or other masks in attempts to filter the dust released in filing acrylic nails, but these masks do not protect them, nor their clients, from chemical fumes."
