"When this problem continues into late adolescence and adulthood it often makes you afraid to be athletically active. DIAGNOSTIC VERIFICATION This injury is sometimes confused with a torn cartilage (p. 106), because some of the symptoms are the same. There is one simple test, shown on the next page, that usually confirms the diagnosis. Test Sit on the floor with your leg straight but relaxed. Place your thumb on the inside edge of your kneecap as shown and gently push the kneecap toward the outside (in the direction of the dislocation). You should be able to move it quite far."

"Two to three months of rest sometimes will allow the injury to heal, but more often it will stay around for years, especially if you are active. Do the ice treatment along with the Backhand Lift if you can do so without pain. Medical treatment is usually recommended if rest and ice don't work. Medical Treatment 1. deep frictioning: Several weeks of treatment usually are effective if the tendon tear is not too widespread. Three to four weeks are generally required. 2. injection: One or two corticosteroid injections are usually effective."

"It gradually worsens over the next several months and you will have "good days" and "bad days," depending on how active you've been. As the cartilage wears you will find that you feel some pain walking uphill or upstairs, but the greater discomfort will occur when you walk downstairs, walk downhill, or kneel. In some cases, sitting with bent knees makes you ache, and in the most severe cases even walking is difficult. Misalignment of the knee and foot is usually the prime cause of chondromalacia."

"This is a preliminary test that often helps localize the general area of your pain. active movements give you general information about your injury and define the kinds of physical movements that give you pain, such as lifting, walking, serving in tennis, hammering, running, and so on. Movements against resistance (resisted movements) are isometric movements in which you use your muscles without movement through space. Putting your forearm on a desk and pushing down is a movement (pushing down) against resistance (the desk)."

"You may move into an active stance or a passive stance. In the active stance, you'll be thinking up and answering questions. In the passive stance, you'll feel more like you are watching a movie or "receiving" thought or impressions. Any combination of these experiences is valid. A lot of people expect to experience powerful imagery—Panavision with surround sound—and when they don't get that, they get frustrated and shut down the experience. You may get Panavision and you may not. Highly rational people tend to experience hypnotic insight, even memory, more as thoughts or ideas."

"You're not active at all. So the amount that you actually sweat is trivial. You don't have to shower afterwards, because you didn't do anything. And that's your entire activity for the week." This situation must change. Our school years should be among the most active of our lives. Children, when left to their own devices, are in constant motion. Confining them to chairs and desks all day is unnatural, and it's also harmful. We're seeing the terrible effect this sedentary lifestyle is having on the increasing numbers of overweight kids all over the country."

"Paul, Minnesota, has labeled many of these children as "Active Alert" children. Dr. Budd publishes an excellent newsletter called The active Alerter.4 She argues that many children who get labeled ADD are just active Alert children, and we generally agree. We see many children who are vibrantly active and alert who are not ADD. We also contend that there are probably some children with ADD hiding out in her active Alert group. However, we would like to see their brainwave patterns and see how they respond to neurofeedback before we totally agree with Dr. Budd's model."

"The more carbs you eat and the less active you are, the more the carbs turn into fat. That means more weight. The sad consequence of cozying up to carbs and becoming increasingly sedentary is that Americans have gotten fatter—there has been a 32 percent weight increase in the last ten years, and nearly two-thirds of the population is now considered overweight. The realization of what carbs hath wrought has inspired a seemingly endless production of low-carb diet books and revitalized the life of the high-protein classic, the Atkins diet."

"Despite the common misconception that bones are hard, lifeless parts of the human body, bones are actually active tissue. Bone cells are constantly breaking down and rebuilding. Why do bones break down? Bone is broken down to offer the body minerals it needs to maintain homeostasis. Your bones are your body's reservoir of calcium. Every muscle contraction you do requires a calcium ion. That's right. Every time you blink, you use calcium. All day long, you are using calcium and requiring your bones to break down. Calcium is also used to help maintain the pH of your blood."

"I can be more at ease with members of the opposite sex because there is no chance of a potential romance because I don't have to deal with attention because certain bodily or facial features will not be noticed if I am overweight because I'll fail, and therefore I'd be worse off for trying (for example, going for a promotion, playing a sport, dancing, being an active parent) because it is a way for me to have lower expectations of myself. (All of the items that you listed in chapter 5 are the things you have been avoiding as a way for you to decrease the demands you make on yourself."

"Probiotic supplementation supplies billions of live active cells to the intestines, which is far more than can be added to most food products. We take a more in-depth look into probiotic foods and supplements in Chapter 18. How Do Probiotics Work? The exact mechanisms of action by which probiotics elicit their beneficial effects are not fully understood. Researchers are working to better understand the specifics of these proposed mechanisms by which probiotics appear to affect the health of humans."

"Nutrient absorption provides bones with the team of nutrients required to keep this active tissue healthy. The bones are a reserve for calcium used to support muscle contractions and stabilize changes in the blood pH. Calcium absorption is vital to the health of your bones and your overall health. Calcium is guided into the bones by vitamin K2. This vitamin is not commonly found in your diet."

"Now we know that there may be an active inflammatory process at work in the delicate valvular structures. Valve replacement was once the only option we could offer patients. Now we have statins. They decrease blood cell adhesiveness and plaque calcification, important characteristics of calcific aortic valvular disease. Statins have other beneficial effects: • They may cut the risk of bone fracture. In four large studies, the risk of hip and nonspinal fractures was considerably reduced among patients taking statins."

"We believe these toxins play an active role in inflammation and plaque formation. Finnish researchers who studied the rate of progression of carotid plaque found smoking to be the foremost accelerator with mercury a close second. Mercury enters the body via contaminated air, fish, dental fillings, and vaccines. We believe that you cannot neutralize mercury without adequate selenium. This is one reason why supplementation is so important. 7. Emotional Stress When you are fired up emotionally, you're putting a torch to your arteries."

"Now she's twenty-four years old, and Darlene has a boyfriend who recently suggested to her that she lose weight so that they can be more active together. Darlene reacted by eating herself sick at the Marriott buffet the next morning. Darlene's rebellious self didn't want to be judged because of her weight. Instead, it demanded unconditional love no matter how she looked or what problems her weight caused—the sort of love she had missed as a child. The motto of her rebellious self was, "Love me first; then I will lose weight."

"I want to keep your conscious mind active to give your unconscious mind what it needs to do the work of integration. By now you know a lot about emotional eating: you know what it is, how it starts, and what keeps it going. But what you don't know yet is how to stop it. In this next part of the book, the practice sessions, I'll help you apply what you learned in part one to overcome emotional eating once and for all. By the end, you'll know exactly what to do when you feel powerless over food or powerless in your life."

"Should the patient take it and be active or not take it and become a couch potato? Our approach to people with chronic arthritic pain is to recommend natural anti-inflammatories such as fish oil, glucosamine, chondroitin, MSM, and willow bark. For now, we don't recommend the pharmaceutical anti-inflammatory drugs because they have too many downsides."

"These pieces, Phase 1 metabolites, are very active and, if oxidized (mixed with oxygen), can form free radicals. Free radicals cause many health problems such as heart disease, blood clots, cancer, arthritis, autoimmune disorders, and most problems associated with aging. Our body naturally makes antioxidants to protect us from free-radical damage, but our environment and aging reduce our antioxidant pool. Pesticides, synthetic hormones, cigarette smoke, pollution, and heavy metals (particularly lead and mercury) reduce our antioxidant levels and increase our risk of disease."

"If you don't like yogurt or have an intolerance or allergy to milk, then you'll be glad to know that many non-traditional food sources of probiotics are emerging on the market every day This is a particularly active area. Advances in technology and manufacturing techniques have opened the door to a world of probiotic food possibilities. While yogurt and cheese have been traditionally used as delivery vehicles for both probiotics and prebiotics, other product areas such as ice cream, spreads and liquid milks are new vehicles for probiotics."

"The most active catechin is EGCG (epigallocatechin gallate), which I mention because when looking at green tea extracts, the higher the EGCG content, the more potent the product. So get your caffeine from green tea, not coffee. Okay, now let me rant a bit about coffee. I am not a coffee drinker but I do realize that most of this country is fueled by it. Both coffee and tea contain antioxidants, but the coffee-roasting process destroys almost all of the antioxidant benefits."

"However, it's bad to have one that's too big, and too active. Unfortunately, many autistic people do appear to have abnormalities of size and activity in their amygdalas. This is probably a primary reason why autistic people have elevated anxiety. It's been shown, for example, that over 50 percent of all high-functioning autistic adults have severe anxiety and panic attacks."

"For more information on eating for optimal performance, you can contact the active Wellness Web Site, or contact a registered dietitian in your neighborhood. Pregnant or Breast-Feeding: If you are pregnant, you will need to consume 300 more calories a day during pregnancy. Use the following equation to calculate your estimated needs: Calorie level for maintenance_+ 300 calories =_= calorie level for pregnancy or maintaining weight while breast-feeding. If you are breast-feeding you will need an additional 300 calories per day to compensate for the energy used during breast-feeding."

"It produces strong feelings of euphoria with visual and auditory hallucinations that may last as long as seven hours. Very high dosages can result in loss of muscle control.

"Ginger's active ingredient, gingerol, inhibits the spread of cancer cells and makes it impossible to distinguish cancer cells from normal healthy cells [Cancer Research 61: 850-53, 2001]. • Gingerol blocks inflammation and thins the blood much like aspirin does, except without the harmful side-effects that result from the use of aspirin. [Pharmazie 60: 83-96, 2005] • Ginger juice produces better recovery from symptoms of nausea than ondansetron, a commonly prescribed drug during chemotherapy."
