"The officials of the earth element are the stomach and spleen. The stomach is the official of "granaries" or of "rotting and ripening," and can also be referred to as "the sea of nutrients." The stomach receives nourishment from the outside and puts it into a form that can be assimilated. We are always digesting our experiences in life, and they won't nourish us if this official is not in a balanced state. The spleen is the "official of transport" that distributes nourishment throughout the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual levels in our beings."

"On an empty stomach it rushes through the stomach faster and raises blood sugar quicker. As part of a meal it sits in the stomach longer and is more slowly absorbed. Thus a banana, frequently referred to as a high glycemic index food, for its ability to raise blood sugar levels when eaten by itself, has an entirely different blood sugar reaction when consumed in conjunction with fat, fiber, and/or protein. Thus, blending a banana into a protein drink in the morning makes a great breakfast that helps to sustain proper blood sugar levels during the day."
- Byron J. Richards, The Leptin Diet: How Fit Is Your Fat? (Get the book.)

"There is more to hunger than stomach contractions and more to stomach contractions than stomach emptiness. stomach contractions stop when sugar is injected into the bloodstream, even though the stomach is empty. Metabolic factors relate hunger to the maintenance of energy and body weight. They are registered in the brain in terms of level of blood sugar and the amount of fat deposited in the body. We get hungry when our blood sugar (glucose) is low, but we do not stop eating only because blood sugar is restored to the proper level. The control of eating is complex."

"Dream Report might read: "I saw a young woman with a hole in her stomach and thought that was weird." Sub-Lucid: Dreamer vaguely realizes he or she dreams. Dream Report might read: "I walked down the street and noticed a flying horse, so I knew this couldn't be real." Semi-Lucid: Dreamer knows he or she dreams but continues to follow the dream plot with very minor adjustments. Dream Report might read: "I walked into the house and saw Uncle Harry, but I realized Uncle Harry was dead, so this must be a dream."

"Finally, with food sensitivities, the reactions or symptoms can be different—swelling one time and a bad stomach another—whereas with allergies, the body consistently has the same reaction, even though, in different ways, both of these reactions involve the immune system. We can have an even subtler reaction to food called an intolerance. The majority of "toxic" responses to food are caused by food intolerances rather than allergies or sensitivities. A food intolerance is defined as any reproducible, toxic response to food that does not involve the immune system."

"Breggin: "Almost any organ can be adversely affected by neuroleptics: eyes, nose, and throat; internal organs, such as the liver, stomach, intestines, cardiovascular system and sexual organs; the skin; and of course, the brain. Be aware of the fact that a small percentage of patients suffer disastrous consequences such as neuroleptics malignant syndrome, sudden unexplained death, cardiovascular crises, seizures, and heat stroke in overheated institutions. These are among the most dangerous medications ever used in medicine!" (pg."

"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." My wife handed me the phone; my sister told me Dad just passed away, minutes earlier."

"She was also convinced that Annemarie had eaten something disagreeable and that her stomach was upset. Many meditators felt a connection to the jade plant and "Tabu," and Peter had a strong sense that AcetabuUria was responding most to the intentions—but with few exceptions the group had the most difficulty establishing any connection with "Dino," and this difficulty increased to the point where most felt no connection at all by the final session. All of us were infused with a strong sense of purpose and momentarily lost a sense of our individual identities."

"Probably in part because drinks pass so quickly through the mouth, the stomach, and into the intestines, there's less time for your brain to receive a signal that you're feeling full. In fact in one study, subjects consumed three different beverages (cola, diet cola, or water) with the same meals on different occasions. The researchers observed that the subjects ate a similar amount of food whether the beverage had calories or not, which resulted in a significant increase in total meal calories when the regular cola was consumed."

"Allow your rib cage to settle and your stomach to be soft. Allow your lower back to become broad. Once you have settled into this position, scan the back again, noticing if you find any new imbalances. Maybe the right side feels shorter than the left. Maybe one hip or knee feels easier when bent. Take your time. When you are done, raise your right arm up by your ear and roll onto your right side, pausing there with your head cradled in your right arm. Take a few more breaths, and then bring yourself up to sit. Before you head out for the day, take a moment and write down what you found."
- Frank Lipman, Mollie Doyle, Spent: Revive: Stop Feeling Spent and Feel Great Again (Get the book.)

"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 bigger the particles of food you give your stomach and intestines to break down, the more work they have to do. Over time, the digestive system gets tired of working so hard, and these big particles go into your bloodstream, where your immune system has to deal with them.Your immune system experiences the food as potentially toxic to your body, so it attacks the food and you can develop a reaction to that food. Sometimes giving your digestive system poorly chewed food can lead to what seems like an allergic response to a food that you are not necessarily allergic to."

"These drugs purported to relieve pain and inflammation without causing—as did aspirin—an estimated 16,500 deaths from stomach ulcers and bleeding; it was also believed that they inhibited cell proliferation, thereby being a treatment for cancer. COX-2 inhibitors were declared another miracle drug. In 2002, the CEO of Pfizer rhapsodized over Celebrex: "Millions of people who were once crippled with arthritis can now work, walk, garden, and do all the little things that make life worthwhile."

"Unlike whole fruit, the drink is devoid of fiber so nothing slows the absorption of fructose in your stomach. Because you don't feel full, you continue to sip away—no wonder people actually spring for 64-ounce drinks. All the while, your liver churns out triglycerides to deposit in your fat cells and artery walls. Your genes program you to seek out such beverages, but they will kill you and you're literally drinking it up! THE HIDDEN DOWNSIDE OF "BEIGE" AND "WHITE" FOODS Remember, you're using a proven program that has worked for people regardless of their age."

"It's a fun and truly valuable exercise and I strongly recommend that you do it during the Prep & Practice Week because it's an important step in retraining your eye (and ultimately your stomach) to appreciate appropriate serving sizes. If you can't actually see it in front of you, it's just theory. Take a bowl—it can be a giant tub if you're accustomed to using that—and put your typical amount of morning cereal in it. Go ahead: Pour it in. Now take a measuring cup and see how much you've poured."

"Although she ordinarily did not especially suffer problems in the gut, she did that night because the three cups of coffee Eduard had asked her to drink upset her stomach. Yet even though coffee late in the afternoon usually agitated her and caused insomnia, on the night of our experiment she drifted off at various points throughout the six hours of the experiment and slept easily that night."

"Regulation of the active form of vitamin D is handled by: (a) The stomach. (b) The parathyroid gland. (c) The thyroid gland. (d) The liver. 12. Which is NOT a risk factor for vitamin D deficiency? (a) Being institutionalized. (b) Elderly people. (c) Breast-fed infants who do not receive sunlight. (d) Skin which is light in color. 13. The form of vitamin E that the body prefers to use: (a) Alpha-tocotrienol. (b) Gamma-tocopherol. (c) Alpha-tocopherol. (d) Gamma-tocotrienol. 14. Vitamin E neutralizes free radicals in: (a) Bones and cartilage. (b) Cell membranes and LDL."

"The pancreas is a large gland behind the stomach that aids in digestion and secretes insulin.) Fourteen aspirins a week increases the risk for pancreatic cancer by 86%, 6 - 13 a week still 41% bolstered risk and 1 - 3, 11% elevated risk. Adverse drug reactions (ADR) are a long term, huge problem in Great Britain, for example, and account for 1 in 16 hospital admissions.90 Heavy use of pain medication harms kidneys; heavy use of aspirins (or acetaminophen) is associated with a recently discovered condition affecting people with irreversible kidney failure."

"With caffeine there is an ulcer risk as it irritates the stomach linking. It even causes a certain type of cancer and adrenal exhaustion, and creates hormone imbalances. The liver does not find it easy to reduce this toxin as it is rapidly absorbed by every organ and tissue in the body. So it is fast-acting and lasts for some time. In fact, it takes 15 minutes for the caffeine to act in the body, 12 hours to detoxify one cup of coffee and seven days to decaffeinate the blood of habitual coffee drinker."

"Shen Nung discovered in one day seventy poisonous plants and their antidotes: through a glass covering to his stomach he could observe the digestion of each herb. Then he composed a pharmacopoeia that is still in use. He was the inventor of the plough and a system of barter; he is worshiped by the Chinese peasant as the "prince of cereals." At the age of one hundred and sixty-eight he was joined to the immortals."

"When the woman reached the animal's stomach, "she saw large forests and great rivers, and many high lands; on one side there were many rocks; and there were many people who had built their village there; and many dogs and many cattle; all was there inside the elephant." 58 The Irish hero, Finn MacCool, was swallowed by a monster of indefinite form, of the type known to the Celtic world as a peist. The little German girl, Red Ridinghood, was swallowed by a wolf. The Polynesian favorite, Maui, was swallowed by his great-great-grandmother, Hine-nui-te-po."

"From the body of this lion of a man, my stomach would not be able to digest a fragment of flesh even so small as a kidney bean. I'll let him go!" And he let Prince Five-weapons go. The Future Buddha preached the Doctrine to him, subdued him, made him self-denying, and then transformed him into a spirit entitled to receive offerings in the forest. Having admonished the ogre to be heedful, the youth departed from the forest, and at the mouth of the forest told his story to human beings; then went his way."

"Side effects of all prostaglandin synthetase inhibitors can include headaches, stomach or intestinal upset (specifically gastritis or ulcers), and a tendency to feel fatigued. Serious complications involve kidney damage and gastrointestinal bleeding."

"This immune effect is especially specific in epithelial mucus membrane tissue as is found in the vagina, mouth, and even the stomach. Berberine has been shown to possess antimicrobial activity against a wide variety of microorganisms, including those found in the vagina, such as Candida albicans, Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus aureus, and others.51 Preparations of goldenseal and Oregon grape root have been used both orally in teas, caps, and liquid extracts and intravaginally in douches and suppositories."

"Astringent herbs form a large category of tannin-containing plants that are used to reduce blood loss from the reproductive tract as well as from the bowel, stomach, respiratory tract, and skin. In the reproductive tract, the astringent herbs are used to correct uterine or cervical bleeding. The astringents most effective in uterine blood loss are often high in tannins, but other constituents also explain their mechanism of action."

"Soy foods, especially cooked soybeans, are difficult for some people to digest, causing gas and stomach upset. Soy's content of trypsin inhibitors can block the enzymes needed for protein digestion. When the protein is improperly digested, fermentation and gas production ensues. However, many researchers believe that so few trypsin inhibitors are left behind after processing the soy food that for most people, their digestion is not affected. The phytate content in soybeans has been another cause for concern with soy foods."

"When he got into the stomach of the fish, he saw a great many people. Many of them were dead, but some were still alive. He said to the people, 'Ah, there must be a heart somewhere here. We will have a dance.' So he painted his face white, his eyes and mouth with black circles, and tied a white rock knife on his head, so that the point stuck up. Some rattles made of hoofs were also brought. Then the people started in to dance. For a while Blood Clot sat making wing-motions with his hands, and singing songs."
