"Essentially it is a combination of X-ray and computer technology that means a three-dimensional picture can be built up of tissues of the body, particularly soft tissues such as lungs, which do not show up so well on X-rays. ţSkin tests can show whether the asthmatic is allergic to any specific substances that may be triggering attacks. Skin prick tests are usually painless. A drop of allergic extract is placed on the skin surface and a prick made at the same spot with a needle."

"Although Gurwitsch's work was largely theoretical, later researchers were able to show that a weak radiation from tissues stimulates cell growth in neighboring tissues of the same organism.12 Other early studies of this phenomenon - now repeated by many scientists ?were carried out in the r940s by neuroanatomist Harold S. Burr from Yale University, who studied and measured electrical fields around living things, specifically salamanders. Burr discovered that salamanders possessed an energy field shaped like an adult salamander, and that this blueprint even existed in an unfertilized egg."

"The ability of the immune tissues to communicate allows an immune response initiated in the GALT to affect other immune tissues, such as the lungs. In other words, a response to an antigen (e.g., peanuts) in the digestive tract could cause an effect in the lungs such as shortness of breath and tightening of the throat, as seen in anaphylactic shock. It is not surprising that researchers are discovering that probiotic supplementation is useful in a wide variety of immune-based ailments including allergies, asthma, eczema and irritable bowel disease."

"A protein that is produced and released in the body and the brain when tissues are stressed. Like vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), FGF-2 helps create more blood vessels and other tissues. FGF-2 is involved in initiating the process of stem-cell division that is necessary for neurogenesis, and it also encourages long-term potentiation (LTP) and the formation of memories. See also long-term potentiation, neurogenesis, and vascular endothelial growth factor. gamma aminobutyric acid (GABA). The principal inhibitory neurotransmitter of the brain."

"You may be familiar with other lymphoid tissues such as the tonsils and spleen. The tonsils are also located in an area where you are commonly exposed to harmful substances (the throat). Your immune tissues are in locations where you need them most, such as your intestinal tract, throat, nose and lungs. They may not physically touch each other, but they stay in close communication with each other by producing protein-messengers, such as antibodies and cytokines. Antibodies are proteins that help the body tag or identify unwanted items, called antigens."

"In cases where the flow of energy in the body has been strongly dampened over a long period, however, use of this method may cause an increase in pain as energy begins to "enliven" deadened tissues. If this happens to you, know that the pain is temporary and will go away with continued energy healing work. Typically, this will even happen over the course of one treatment session where the pain rises at the start and then lessens by the end, though it sometimes lasts over several sessions. Energy-healing work cannot be harmful."

"In the chapters that follow, I will teach you how to feel the energies in your body and use deep levels of awareness to access your thoughts so you can direct those energies, shift what is going on in your bodily tissues, and achieve self-healing. The power of these techniques (energy work combined with increased access to the power in your subconscious and super-conscious minds—the techniques you will learn in this book) is often miraculous. I saw this with a patient of mine named John, who I met at a conference on alternative healthcare in Fredericksburg in 1996."

"The changes they observed were not caused by heating of tissues. • Regular cell phone use raises the risk of developing a brain tumor for many users, according to a new Finnish study published online in the International Journal of Cancer. The study, conducted by numerous researchers from many universities, found firm corollary evidence that using a cell phone causes the risk of getting a brain tumor called a glioma to rise by 40 to 27024 percent on the side of the head preferred for using the phone."

"Laboratory studies have shown saponins' ability to inhibit the reproduction of cancer cells and slow the growth of tumors in several types of tissues. Protease inhibitors seem to slow the division of cancer cells and help prevent tumors from releasing substances called proteases that destroy nearby cells. Slowing down the progression of tumors is phytic acid's contribution. In one recent case-control study involving 3,237 men, the men who ate the most beans had a 38 percent lower risk of prostate cancer than subjects who ate the least."

"It seemed as if the bronchial tubes went into spasm from the classic asthma triggers only when they were already aggravated by inflamed muscles that had become overly sensitive, and by inflamed tissues that poured out too much mucus. Over the next decade, the medical mainstream began to agree that inflammation was the root cause of asthma, so doctors added a new treatment."

"All of your tissues, muscles, bones, organs, and cells are run by enzymes. Your digestive system, immune system, blood stream, liver, kidneys, spleen, and pancreas, as well as your ability to see, think, feel, and breathe, (in fact, the very functioning of each and every cell in your body) all depend on enzymes. All of the minerals and vitamins you eat and all of the hormones your body produces need enzymes in order to work properly. In fact, every single metabolic function in your body is governed by enzymes."

"In addition, an exogenous compound that, as a result of ingestion, inhalation, or absorption, can be measured in tissues or body fluids can also be considered a biomarker. Biomarkers can be classified broadly into markers of exposure, effect, and susceptibility and have numerous applications in nutrition. They can be used to assess dietary intakes (exposure), biochemical or physiological responses to a dietary behavior or nutrition intervention (effect), and predisposition to a particular disease or response to treatment (genetic susceptibility)."

"It is almost a surety that the bacteria have migrated to the bone and tissues adjacent to the tooth's root. You will need to find a dentist experienced in the procedure for removing a root canal tooth, which includes removing the periodontal ligament (which is always infected with toxins produced by streptococcus bacteria living in the dentin tubules) and the first millimeter of bone that lines the socket (which is also usually infected). General Recommendations • Aluminum. Make sure it's not in the water you drink, and you might want to think twice about the antiperspirant you use."

"Regardless of the cause, it is obvious that maintaining the proper pH in the blood, digestive tract, tissues, and fluids is essential in order to support optimal health. I DETERMINING YOUR pH One of the best ways to determine whether or not you are maintaining a proper pH is to test your urine (usually using pH paper, sold in health food stores). This is an accurate way to almost directly assess the pH of your body, because the kidneys are the main organ system that balances the pH of the body. If we become too acidic, our kidneys will eliminate and remove acid through the urine."

"Hemoglobin, a protein present in red blood cells, helps carry oxygen from the lungs to the tissues, where it is exchanged for carbon dioxide. Almost half the volume of blood consists of red and white blood cells, while the remainder is a fluid called plasma, which contains dissolved proteins, sugars, fats, and minerals. The protease in the high protease enzyme formula fortifies and cleanses the blood by helping to build the immune system and break down unwanted ptoteins in the blood."

"Through a reverse process that depends on the water-drawing power of proteins in the blood, the capillaries leading from the tissues reabsorb water. This balance is maintained by the action of the kidneys, which pass excess salt from the blood into the urine to be excreted from the body. Edema can be a problem after surgeries, with prolonged bed rest or hospitalization, with pregnancy, and in a variety of other circumstances."

"Normally the body's defenses do not attack tissues that carry such a marker. Immune cells coexist peaceably with other cells in a state known as self-tolerance. 71 Foreign molecules, too, carry distinctive markers, characteristic shapes that protrude from their surfaces. One of the remarkable things about the immune system is that it can recognize many millions of distinctive nonself molecules and respond by producing antibodies that match and counteract each of the nonself molecules, or antigens. An antigen is any substance capable of triggering an immune response."

"Grazing animals are likeliest to have the most beneficial ratio of omega-3s to omega-6s, as well as being a great source of plant phytonutrients in their tissues. Likewise, you're better off eating wild-caught than farm-raised fish. BECOME A LEAN, GREEN EATING MACHINE I promised you that you would be able to eat plenty of food and never feel hungry on Diet Evolution. While protein will provide the bulk of the calories in the Teardown phase, vegetables will supply most of the volume and micronutrients."

"This type of pain is a sign of progress; it's a sign that energy flow has been restored to deadened tissues. The mind is capable of performing a function similar to chemical painkillers and anesthetics. In cases of chronic acute pain, the mind will act to withdraw energy from the nerves in the afflicted area so the pain will go down. This reaction of the mind is helpful in the short term. Acute pain makes it difficult to function and can create problems in other parts of your body."

"Keeping lean with protein: Protein helps repair the tissues of our body. In general, the American diet provides more than enough protein to meet our needs. Beans, soy, fish, and whey are the featured protein champions in this book. You may ask, "Can't lean cuts of beef, chicken, pork, and so forth fit well into this program?" Sure! In fact, some of the recipes contain some of these animal protein sources as ingredients."

"The liver may then take up this cholesterol via receptors specific for these lipoproteins, or it can be delivered again to the peripheral tissues. The TG received by the HDL2 is hydrolyzed by hepatic lipase and the particle is converted back to HDL3, completing the HDL3 cycle in plasma. In the liver, cholesterol can be excreted directly into bile, converted to bile acids, or reuti-lized in lipoprotein production."

"There are two important considerations that flow from this broader understanding: (1) nutrient deficiency states, even when one defect is more prominent than others, tend to be pluriform; and (2) although their public health impact may be large, measurable effects of nutrients in isolated, single tissues or systems are often small (see the Effect Size section). The problems created by these features can be exemplified by two observations relating specifically to calcium."

"This pathway, although most active in liver, has been identified in other tissues like fetal brain and mammary gland [40-42]. Choline is also involved in the one-carbon metabolism via its irreversible oxidation to betaine [43], which methy-lates homocysteine to form methionine, thus contributing to the S-adenosylmethionine synthesis and linking choline with folate metabolism (Fig. 1). During pregnancy, choline is transported across the placenta by active mechanisms, against a concentration gradient [44]."

"The main message in these talks, the scientists said, was that animal studies had shown that Zithromax was a powerful drug that stayed in the body's tissues longer than other antibiotics. The marketers suggested the scientists talk about the drug using snappy, memorable phrases like "the tissue is the issue," which doctors would remember once the experimental drug was approved for sale. But the influence that marketers had in Pfizer's laboratories went far beyond having white-coated scientists use zippy slogans to speak about experimental medicines in the pipeline."

"The decision opened the door to the patenting of genes, cell lines, tissues, and organs. Human parts became products. Medicine became a golden business opportunity. These two changes—the Bayh-Dole Act and the ability to patent biological things—put dollar signs in the eyes of college administrators and their faculties. Universities began to see their medical laboratories as profit centers and their professors as entrepreneurs. Between 1980 and 1995 university researchers helped start 1,633 new companies."

"Astringency causes tissues to tighten and can dry up excess liquid. This is what we are experiencing when we pucker. Sour taste usually indicates some type of action on the urinary tract and kidneys but can also be effective in protecting inflamed tissue, reducing swelling, and increasing stomach acid to cause an alkalizing response by the metabolism. A bitter taste is one that many prefer to avoid, and yet its taste indicates that the plant may have some type of tonic action. Tonic means that it brings blood to the area and that the cells expand and contract, bringing tone to the tissue."

"In 2000 EWG and Commonweal began the Human Toxome Project (HTP) to analyze human tissues for industrial chemicals that enter the body as pollution via food, air, and water, or from exposures to ingredients in everyday consumer products. Utilizing the latest technology, the project thus far includes a collection of seven studies involving 75 participants ranging in age from newborn to the elderly."
