"The entire program, of course, is about helping children who have fallen through the cracks, determining if they are suffering from some alleged mental illness but, oddly enough, TeenScreen does not post for informational review the specific questions from the tests that will be posed to the children. Why? Would not having all the information about the program help garner support and confidence from the masses? Although I have obtained copies of two of the tests, officials at TeenScreen did not respond to my request for reprint approval."

"OR = 2.6, p < .002), speech disorder (OR = 2.1, p < .02), personality disorders (OR = 2.6, p < .01), and thinking abnormality (OR = 8.2, p < .01) adverse events reported to the VAERS following thimerosal-containing DTaP vaccines in comparison to thimerosal-free DTaP vaccines. Potential confounders and reporting biases were found to be minimal in this assessment of the VAERS."

"Dr. Breggin says, "It was inevitable that these losses would occur. The basal ganglia, which are afflicted in tardive dyskinesia, are richly interconnected with the higher centers of the brain, so that their dysfunction almost inevitably leads to disturbances in cognitive processes. A multitude of studies have confirmed that long-term use is associated with both deterioration and atrophy of the brain. Growing evidence indicates that these drugs produce tardive psychoses that are irreversible and more severe than the patients' prior problems." According to Dr."

"Once again it is the mind-altering drugs that take the limelight, and the legitimacy of the alleged mental illnesses is not even a consideration. And, although credit is due to the Post for its comprehensive coverage of the psycho-pharma debate, in its apparent eagerness to report recent developments, the paper sometimes gets the proverbial cart before the horse. A Jan."

"The final "tool" available by TeenScreen to determine if a child is at risk of suffering from a mental illness is the Diagnostic Predictive Scales (DPS), which is a 52-item, computerized interview that also can be scored by "trained non-professionals." The DPS computer test is designed for 9- to 18-year-olds and also takes just 10 minutes, but this test produces a computer-generated report of the results. Wow, that's impressive! Just answer a few questions and 10 minutes later a child may be a candidate for a psychiatric diagnosis."

"What is of additional interest is the extraordinary pharmaceutical support provided during the process of formulating the TMAP, which will be utilized once the mental illness diagnosis has been made."

"A careful analysis revealed that in half of those with dementia, their mental impairment was due to a diseased arterial blood supply to the brain.5 Similarly, a study in the Netherlands focused on five thousand people between the ages of fifty-five and ninety-four.6 The researchers studied the circulation in the brains of all their subjects, then asked them to perform various written tests of mental acuity. The results were quite clear: those suffering from artery disease and thus impaired circulation in the brain performed less well on the tests than did those whose arteries were clean."

"All of history's great spiritual teachers have had great confidence in the power of fasting - not only to improve the physical body but to promote a keener spiritual understanding of the divine power that is above us and within us. Your mental power increases! Prove it to yourself. See how much sharper and more alert your mind becomes after a fast. Notice how quickly you acquire facts ... how much more your mind absorbs and remembers what you read. Jack LaLanne, Patricia Bragg, Elaine LaLanne & Paul C."

"Wilkins died, showed that more than half of the people who go through coronary artery bypass surgery experience a significant decrease in mental capacity postoperatively, and the risk is even higher for older patients. In retrospect Mrs. Wilkins' frustration with her husband ("he's not himself") was almost certainly a reaction to mental impairment he had suffered as a result of his surgery. There is no way we can know whether Mr. Wilkins was the one American patient out of seven and a half who would really benefit from heart surgery."

"Following the "Natural Way of Living" we can recapture the precious bloom of youth through the gifts of physical, mental and spiritual regeneration. There are no shortcuts to health! Mother Nature expects us to do our part. When you fast you are working with Mother Nature. God and Mother Nature won't perform a miracle until we are willing to bring our lives and habits into conformity with Their Eternal Laws of Health. It's my honest and sincere belief that nobody should ever promise to cure anyone of their physical misery."

"Among the most widely discussed hypotheses, the concept of multiple "shells" surrounding the body—physical, mental, and spiritual—merits special attention. According to esoteric wisdom, several shells compose the human being, one embedded in the other, like the skins of an onion. When an individual dies it is not only his mental shell (his consciousness) that leaves his physical shell (his body); his spiritual shells separate from it as well. These shells separate gradually, in stages."

"Altered mental status is the main reason that these patients are brought to the hospital. The patient's blood sugar is consistently very high and alkaline. However, the most distinguishing feature is extreme dehydration caused by frequent urination. Symptoms include polydipsia, polyuria, and severe dehydration. Laboratory diagnostics reveal hyperglycemia equal or above to 600 mg/dl, hyperosmolarity >320 mOsm/L, arterial pH equal to or over 7.3, and the absence of ketones. Mortality rates are much more severe than DKA, ranging from 20% to 80%. Rehydration is of utmost importance."

"One study examined the effectiveness of melatonin in treating the sleep disorders in 100 children, who had a wide variety of physical problems including blindness, mental retardation, autism, and central nervous system diseases. Melatonin therapy was found to benefit over 80% of these children, and was lauded as a "safe, inexpensive, and very effective treatment of sleep-wake cycle disorders."55 In general, smaller doses of melatonin appear to be just as effective as larger doses in inducing and sustaining sleep."

"His stamina, endurance, energy and mental abilities were astounding to everyone! The trek began at sunup. The heat and humidity were the worst I have ever experienced. I have spent time in some of the hottest spots in the world, including Death Valley in California, the Sahara Desert and across North Africa on an 800 mile bicycle trip in intense summer heat. But never once did Gandhi seem to tire. Never once did he falter in his brisk pace of walking. The only time he sat down was during talks with the villagers. He would speak for 20 minutes, then answer questions for 20 minutes."

"The result was that a whopping 65 percent of the MCS patients, as compared to only 28 percent of the controls, exhibited evidence of major mental disorders. "We conclude that patients receiving this diagnosis may have one or more commonly recognized psychiatric disorders that could explain some or all of their symptoms," the team wrote. In other words, MCS is a psychiatric disease. And so entrenched are their mental problems, Black doubts these people are even treatable. "It's virtually impossible to deprogram them. I wouldn't even attempt it." John Seiner does all the time."

"Eating regularly has become such an ingrained part of people's lives that, if you take food away from them, they experience many mental and physical reactions. That is the very reason why fasting is not popular. Humans are creatures of strong habits. Most people automatically eat 3 or more meals every day and not because they have earned their food with physical activity. They have been brainwashed to believe everyone should eat at certain hours for regular mealtimes. Patricia and I had the pleasure of staying at the fabulous Mauna Kea Hotel, on the Island of Hawaii."

"He intended each remedy to be used for a specific emotional or mental state. Some examples are: • Gentian (Gentiana amarella) for despondency. • Holly (Ilex aquifolium) for jealousy. • Impatiens (Impatiens glandulifera) for impatience. • Pine (Pinus sylvestris) for guilt. • Rock rose (Helianthemum nummularium) for terror."

"In choosing a remedy for a particular patient, a homoeopath will consider the patient's physical, mental and emotional symptoms as well as personal characteristics, likes and dislikes. This information is then used to select the homoeopathic remedy with a 'symptom picture' that most closely matches that of the patient. Computerized repertories (databases of homoeopathic remedy symptom pictures) are now available which facilitate this process. Homoeopathic remedies Homoeopathic remedies and herbal medicines are often confused and/or deemed to be similar."

"His theory was that by treating patients' emotional and mental responses to their illness, physical symptoms would then be relieved. He identified 38 negative psychological states (e.g. jealousy, hopelessness, guilt, indecision) and sought natural remedies that could be used to 'correct' these negative states of mind. It is claimed that, to do this, Bach visited the countryside, concentrated on these specific emotional states and was intuitively drawn towards particular wild flowers that he believed could relieve them."

"Iodine deficiency can also be devastating to the developing brain, causing a mental retardation known as cretinism. Most developed countries, therefore, screen for hypothyroidism at birth. Toxic amounts of concentrated iodine taken orally can cause metallic taste, burning mouth, increased salivation, headache, edema, acne, and gastric upset. Prolonged use can cause thyroid gland hyperplasia, thyroid adenoma, and hypothyroidism. Topically, iodine may stain skin, irritate tissues, and cause iodine burns in concentrations of 7% or more."

"Mood and Cognition Leading experts in the field of brain research have observed that "sex steroids exert profound effects on mood and mental state."30 Many studies have established a direct relationship between decreased testosterone levels and negative mood factors, such as depression, anger, confusion, anxiety, and fatigue.31 One study found that testosterone replacement used to restore androgen balance in hypogonadal men improved many emotional parameters, including friendliness, energy levels, and sense of well-being."

"The tonic effect is a general enhancement of mental and physical performance, including an improvement in memory and learning, and it has been suggested that this is due to changes in cholinergic activity and also neuroprotection. The adaptogenic effect is an ability to enhance non-specific resistance to stress, and may be due to elevation of serum levels of corticosteroids and reduction of catecholamines, which results in homoeostasis. Ginsenoside Rbj acts as a central nervous system sedative and Rg, has antifatigue and stimulant properties."

"The perceptual and mental skills of the valley children not only lagged dramatically behind those of the foothdls chddren, but were beyond repair (EHP June 1998). This study has staggering implications for the future of humanity, as Dr. Landrigan at the above-mentioned conference pointed out: even a 5 point shift in the average IQ of a population (via pre-natal exposure to pesticides) almost doubles the number of retarded chddren and cuts in half the number of gifted ones. But repair of such generational damage appears to be possible over time."

"SURGERY Undergoing surgery can create a great deal of physical, emotional, and mental stress. Supporting the digestive and immune systems and improving circulation prior to and following surgical procedures can facilitate and expedite the body's healing. Due to the extensively varied attributes of surgical procedures and the medications that may be administered both before and after the surgery, it is best to consult with your physician regarding the use of enzymes and supplemental nutrients to be sure that they are not contraindicated in any way."

"That omega-3 s play an important role in mental function has been recognized since the 1980s, when it was found that babies fed on infant formula supplemented with omega-3 s scored significantly higher on tests of both mental development and visual acuity than babies receiving formula supplemented only with omega-6. Could it be that the problem with the Western diet is a gross deficiency in this essential nutrient? A growing number of researchers have concluded that it is, and they voice frustration that official nutritional advice has been slow to recognize the problem."

"The symptoms of Alzheimer's disease are progressive mental deterioration characterized by an inability to carry out daily activities, a loss of cognitive functions, and a loss of memory functions. Extensive research studies indicate that the causes of Alzheimer's disease can include genetic factors, age, environmental factors, chronic exposure to aluminum and/or silicon, and increased oxidative damage due to long-term toxic exposure."

"The obstacles blocking health are (1) an outdated medical model desperately in need of systems and complexity thinking, (2) an economy based on the notion that greed is good, and (3) the body's tendency to defend against physical and mental assaults by adapting temporarily through addiction until it can no longer hold off the collapse into disease."
