"If I lucidly dream of a fire, for example, and expect to feel no heat upon walking in it, I'll feel no heat. If I change my expectation to feel the fire's heat, my new expectation will be realized, and I'll feel definite heat. My lucid dreaming experiences made me wonder how extensively the mind influences perception and sensation while waking. Conscious in the dream state, the influence seems pervasive. During waking, I simply assumed I experienced things "as they actually exist." Yet I knew from my exposure to hypnosis that waking sensory experience could actually be considerably modified."

"Heat cramps and heat exhaustion are mild forms of heat illness, but heatstroke is a life threatening emergency. Symptoms include headache, slurred speech, dizziness, faintness, and hallucinations. If you suspect someone is suffering from heatstroke, act quickly to cool them off. To prevent heat illness, try to stay cool, and make sure you drink extra water during hot weather or whenever you exercise. Moisturizes your skin. Summertime isn't the only time you should drink lots of water. During ^___y cold months your skin can become dry and your lips chapped."

"Heat intolerance in particular is a well-known effect of antipsychotic drugs, notoriously causing death by heat stroke in state hospitals and tenements that lack air-conditioning. Both hypotension and heat intolerance are caused by drug-induced dysfunction in the autonomic nervous system that governs physiological activities. He had stomachaches and took Tylenol for headaches. Jeb was not completely disabled by these symptoms. He continued to go to school and to have friends but his social life was dampened."

"Heat the beans. Put all the chopped veggies into individual dishes. Spoon rice onto your plate, pile it high with your selection of ingredients, and top with tamari and/or salsa. Store any leftovers in a bowl and use them for salad the next day, adding balsamic vinegar. Heaven! Sometimes, the simplest foods taste the best. You can bake Vidalia onions, covered, on low heat. The longer they bake, the sweeter they become. Eat them plain or on rice or baked potatoes. Sweet potatoes and yams are delicious and filling and incredibly easy."

"To water saute, heat a skillet on high heat until water sputters when dropped on the pan. Use small amounts of water in the hot skillet, wok, or pan, covering occasionally and adding more water when necessary until vegetables are tender."

"Hyperthermic Therapy or heat Therapy (Saunas) Saunas and heat therapies are an ancient method of cleansing. The Native American sweat lodge was a tool for physical and spiritual purification. Today, the Environmental Protection Agency has shown that sauna therapy increases excretion of heavy metals (lead, mercury, cadmium, and fat-soluble chemicals—PCBs, PBBs, and HCBs). It seems science has finally caught up with these historical practices for maintaining health."

"Select oils that work at high heat. These include peanut, high-oleic sunflower, and high-oleic safflower oils. Baking and sauteing. Select medium-heat oils, which include canola, soy, and walnut oils. Light sauteing and sauces. Medium-heat oils are necessary. The champion is olive oil, followed by high-oleic sunflower, walnut, soy, and pumpkin seed oils. Oils for soups and salads. You can directly add flaxseed oil as a fortifier and use olive oil for everything else. When out of olive oil, use canola oil. Mayonnaise. Use low-fat canola oil mayonnaise and canola oil spread."

"The objective of the plaster is to localize heat in the chest; a mustard plaster can generate enough heat to blister the skin unless a substantial layer of cloth is placed between the plaster and the skin. This heat helps stimulate circulation and loosen congestion, while the inhaled vapors from the oil attack the congestion from the inside. For years, the mustard plaster was one of the most effective remedies available for easing, if not curing, bronchitis and pleurisy."

"The Boss would have said something even more frontal-lobe, like: "You don't define me when you insult me-you define yourself V The Boss in each of us is always capable of saying those smart things that we later wish we'd said, but hadn't, in the heat of the moment. Executive function, in fact, is all about taking the heat out of the moment. One more day went by without a blazing rage. Then, another. The real Alisa was finally, once again emerging-the Alisa who had babbled happily in her crib, and had loved the world."

"A certain amount of the food we eat is converted immediately to heat. This effect is known as diet-induced thermogenesis (heat production). The degree of diet-induced thermogenesis is what determines whether an individual is likely to be obese. In lean individuals a meal may stimulate an up to 40 percent increase in heat production. In contrast, obese individuals often display only a 10 percent (or less) increase in heat production. In these people the food energy is stored instead of being converted to heat."

"But as soon as you start to accelerate, the vacuum begins to appear like a lukewarm sea of heat radiation from your perspective as you move. Bernie began wondering if inertia - like this heat radiation - is caused by acceleration through the vacuum."

"You can bake Vidalia onions, covered, on low heat. The longer they bake, the sweeter they become. Eat them plain or on rice or baked potatoes. Sweet potatoes and yams are delicious and filling and incredibly easy. All you have to do is remember to put them in the oven early enough, sincethey take at least an hour to bake. Another meal that's delicious, simple, and fast—even pretty—is whole-wheat couscous with Muir Glen's portobello mushroom pasta sauce and frozen peas. Add the couscous to boiling water and watch while it transforms itself in seconds!"

"A 2007 Nexv York Times article referred to thioglycolic acid straighteners as "new reducing agents," which combined with a "heat protein" and a nichrome wire heat panel was at that time boosting sales at a group of Momotaro Hair Salons in New York ( 7). However, it has been well-known for over three decades that thioglycolic acid straighteners are highly toxic, causing hair to become brittle and break in addition to irritating the scalp and causing pustular and other allergic reactions (8 )."

"Applications of heat or cold will sometimes help relieve pain. Finding out whether one or the other of these work requires some experimentation. Generally these will also need to be limited to a hour or so in order to avoid damaging tissue. Ice packs, hot water bottles, heat pads, hot tubs, etc., can all be good for some types of pain. Whirlpools deliver both heat and a vigorous action against the skin, creating relief from some types of pain. Diathermy applies deep heat to painful areas with an electronic heating I technique. Diathermy needs to be done by a trained physical therapist."

"If the fluid is not replaced, you will not only slow down but run the risk of heat exhaustion and heat stroke. Dehydration results in a reduction in blood plasma, which leaves less blood to carry vital nutrients and oxygen to muscle cells. As a result, you will tire sooner and take longer to recover from your workout. In addition, there is less blood to cool down the skin. Drinking extra water helps to replace fluid, but it may not be enough. Glycerol is a hydroscopic compound that naturally occurs in every cell of the body and helps cells hold onto water."

"The great English herbalist Nicholas Culpeper wrote that propolis was "good for all heat and inflammation in many parts of the body and cools the heat of the wounds." During both World Wars, soldiers applied propolis to their wounds to prevent infection. Intrigued by the folklore, modern scientists investigated propolis and discovered that it does indeed have natural antibiotic, antiviral, and anti-inflammatory compounds."

"To test his hypothesis that sugar could be used in this way, Blass timed the reactions of a group of mice exposed to a potentially painful level of heat. He first rested the front foot of a mouse on a hot plate and then measured how quickly it lifted its paw from the heat. The mice lifted their little feet up in an average of 10 seconds. Blass then gave the mice a drink that was 11.5 percent sugar and repeated the experiment. This time it took them an average of 20 seconds—twice as long—to lift those little paws."

"This process involves the rapid heating of food in water for a short period of time at the boiling point. The heat inactivates the food's enzymes that otherwise would cause slow deterioration of the food while frozen. Unfortunately, this heating step also destroys approximately 10-15 percent of the vitamins that are sensitive to heat. Two of the most sensitive vitamins to destruction by heat are vitamin B6 and folic acid. Again somewhat larger amounts of frozen vegetables or fruits must be consumed to provide the quantity of these vitamins supplied by fresh foods."

"Moreover, aging persons are disproportionately affected by drastic changes in temperature, as has been evidenced by high mortality rates during severe heat waves in several countries. As Al Gore and others have taught us, we can all make small changes in our lives to combat global warming by: ?Recycling ?Driving less and walking more ?Carpooling or taking public transportation ?Flying less ?Reducing our reliance on air-conditioning and heating •Using energy-efficient products ?Choosing green energy for our homes ?Supporting public efforts to pursue alternative sources of energy ?"

"For example, the paradigm applications of the caloric theory were to heating and cooling by mixtures and by change of state. But heat could be released or absorbed in many other ways—e.g., by chemical combination, by friction, and by compression or absorption of a gas—and to each of these other phenomena the theory could be applied in several ways. If the vacuum had a heat capacity, for example, heating by compression could be explained as the result of mixing gas with void. Or it might be due to a change in the specific heat of gases with changing pressure."

"To water saute, heat a skillet on high heat until water sputters when dropped on the pan. Use small amounts of water in the hot skillet, wok, or pan, covering occasionally and adding more water when necessary until vegetables are tender."

"Polar bears have physiologies designed to thrive when available heat is limited; they soak up and conserve warmth. Humans have physiologies designed to thrive when calories are scarce; we soak up and conserve calories, running quite well on relatively few and storing the rest as body fat to use when needed. Just as polar bears are undone by their ability to store heat when heat is suddenly abundant, humans don't cope well when food is suddenly available in excess. We tend to overeat! One of two solutions can fix the mismatch between human metabolism and the modern environment."

"Cut down on your meat and decrease your heat. This strategy is not about the ethics of eating animals, being the highest carnivore on the food chain, or deforestation of the Amazon to raise cattle. Rather, it is about finding the balance of animal protein to green plants in your diet that is right for you. You may transition to a near total vegephile existence in your Diet Evolution, or you may decide that all you are comfortable with is one meatless day a week. The choice is yours."

"Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer, covered, for 5 minutes. Add the fish, and spoon poaching liquid over it. Simmer, covered, until the fish flakes easily when tested with a fork. This should take 6 to 8 minutes. Use a slotted spoon to transfer fish and vegetables to a serving dish. Keep warm while boiling the poaching liquid, uncovered, for about 5 minutes or until it is reduced to about 1/3 cup. Pour on top of the fish and vegetables."
