"The powerful words in Sacred Santemony are produced from whole-brain use (involving both hemispheres of the brain) of the letters of the ancient languages—languages that are comprised of the basic sound frequencies that underlie and bring forth all physical manifestation. The letters of the ancient language vibrate at a much higher level than our modern languages, and when combined to form whole words, they generate feelings of peace and harmony (Santemony) to calm the storms of unrest, violence, and turmoil, both internal and external."

"A tradition of herbal cleansing is recorded in the cultures of the ancient Sumerians, Egyptians, Romans, Greeks, Chinese, Europeans, and American and Asian Indians. The Chinese have a long and rich herbal tradition, dating back some five thousand years. They count their medicinal herbs in the thousands, as compared to the hundreds used therapeutically in Western societies. The therapeutic use of herbal preparations is also an integral part of Ayurvedic medicine, an ancient Indian system of healing that has its roots in Vedic culture."

"The interest in protein (meat) probably dates back to ancient Greece. There are reports that athletes in ancient Greece, in preparation of Olympic games, consumed large amounts of meat. This belief stems partly from the fact that muscle contains a large proportion of the total protein in a human body (about 40%). Muscle also accounts for 30% to 50% of all protein turnover in the body. Both the structural proteins that make up the myofibrillar proteins and the proteins that act as enzymes within a muscle cell change as an adaptation to exercise training."

"For me, the most intriguing question about this research on focused attention was the means by which a Buddhist monk could turn himself into a human boiler, and how these means compared with techniques and practices of other ancient traditions. Like Benson, I was intrigued by "masters" of intention: practitioners of ancient disciplines—Buddhism, Qigong, shamanism, traditional native healing—who had been trained to perform extraordinary acts through their thoughts. I wanted to work out their common denominators."

"A Brief History of Complementary and Alternative Therapy The ancient Egyptians prayed to Imhotep. The Romans borrowed the Greek demigod Asclepios. Aesculapius was a son of Apollo who begot two sons, Mach-aon the surgeon and Podalirios the physician, and two daughters, Hygieia and Panacea. For the ancients, gods and demigods could cause and cure diseases and wounds. Healing gods were enshrined in special temples open to all who were ill and suffering. Physicians were itinerant craftsmen, ministering and operating in the homes of those who could pay their fee."

"It became clear to me that these ancient healing systems had a place in the modern world and that we Western physicians had much to learn from their study. I saw that our science was complementary and could explain, biochemically, their poetic beliefs. Chinese medicine recognizes that as we age, we need to be nourished and fortified with "tonics." It is this notion that brought me to my understanding of hormonal health. I have learned that you can use hormones as tonics to restore the deficiencies of age and to lessen the effects of stress, illness, and poor lifestyle."

"Reiki is another great technique for helping both babies and mommies relax. This ancient Japanese healing art uses hands-on touch to reduce stress and promote relaxation. When Wyatt was younger, I taught him a few Reiki techniques that he practices whenever he's feeling fearful, confused, or anxious. Just a little Reiki instruction has helped Wyatt become more centered and relaxed. Turn to the resources section for my recommendations on infant-massage and Reiki books."

"Without question, we are in the depths of history's worst epidemic of asthma, even though the condition has been recognized since the time of the ancient Greeks. The Greeks coined the term "asthma," which also meant "oppression." Tracking the Epidemic • From 1980 to 2000, the number of doctor visits for asthma increased almost 300 percent, from 6 million annually to 17.3 million. • Twenty million people in America have asthma. • Nine million Americans eighteen or younger have asthma."

"The term probiotic originates from the ancient Greek words pro and biotica, meaning "for life." In 2001, an Expert Consultation meeting arranged by the World Health Organization and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations created a now widely accepted definition for probiotics. They define the term probiotic as: live microorganisms which when administered in adequate amounts confer a health benefit on the host. Medically, probiotic is defined as microorganisms that positively affect the health of our body when administered in adequate amounts."

"When you lose weight and become intent on remaking your life, you expose yourself to these ancient anxieties, and the rebellious self tells you that you can feel safe again only if you will get fat again. You can see how the buffering that fat provides might hook you into staying overweight, although, of course, fat doesn't really protect you.You know it doesn't make logical sense to try to hide behind fat, given the fact that excess weight is seen as unattractive, and that it's harmful to your health."

"This parent became your enemy way back in the ancient history of your life. He or she was supposed to love and protect you, to encourage and understand you. Instead, something else happened, and you haven't forgotten it.You have a giant score to settle. Even if that parent now feels guilty and makes sincere attempts to apologize, your anger doesn't abate. Even if that parent has already died, the fury still festers inside you. You feel wronged, that you were damaged in some permanent way, and you're stuck with this need to get even."

"That's an ancient image of infantile panic. It doesn't represent the reality of who you are. Unfulfilled Expectancy As you mature, you have to accept the fact that expectations often lead to disappointments and to gratification that is often delayed. That hurts, but it's tolerable. As infants and children, we expected our needs to be fulfilled and we expected them to be fulfilled quickly, or else we began to form catastrophe predictions."

"Melatonin is our major sleep hormone but it is also important for our long-term health. This ancient hibernation hormone is controlled by light, heat, and food, and it is often low during perimenopause. Without enough melatonin, your sleep is light. You are easily awakened and once awake you find it hard to fall back to sleep. But melatonin is tricky. Too little, and you won't sleep well, but too much can also prevent restful sleep."

"Shilajit is an ancient herbomineral extract from the Himalayas; it improves glycogen stores in the liver, and has been shown to help reduce sugar in the urine, promote regeneration of the pancreatic beta cells, and reduce oxidative stress. It is not that well known, but we have used it for mineral replacement. The active principle of shilajit is fulvic acid, which improves the bioavailability of important trace minerals, and there is some feeling that it creates regeneration in the pancreatic cells. It is known as an adaptogen and should be taken mostly during the winter."

"Dong quai (angelica sinesis) is an ancient Asian herb and a mainstay of most Chinese women's formulas. Much like soy, Dong quai has an estrogen-regulating effect. It will enhance estrogenic effects when estrogen levels are low, and reduce its effects when estrogen levels are too high. According to Chinese medicine, it is used to nourish the blood and treat scanty periods, anemia, and menstrual cramps. In addition, it appears to ward off yeast infections and can help reduce PMS symptoms. It is always used in conjunction with other herbs in Chinese formulas."

"I have studied ancient therapies, worked with cutting-edge technologies, and lived through perimenopause myself. I have reviewed a multitude of studies, and in this chapter I will try to demystify hormones for you by looking at several of these studies with calm and common sense. I recommend that all women support their hormones if they have symptoms during perimenopause and continue that support for at least the first ten years of menopause, and possibly beyond. Timing, the type of hormone used, and how hormones are broken down inside your body determine many of their risks."

"High levels of gluten are not historically natural to our diet; they are a modern creation. ancient grains such as spelt and barley contain small amounts of gluten, which most people can tolerate without any problem. ancient grains can be a healthy addition to your diet if your system can tolerate small amounts of gluten. Wheat, however, is not a natural food. It has been "encouraged" to grow the way it does today to produce a better crop yield."

"Just because the relatively young Western system of medicine does not know how to treat cancer successfully, does not imply that the ancient forms of medicine are helpless, too. In orthodox medicine, patients are not encouraged to expect a spontaneous remission of their cancer. Doctors want to avoid giving them "false" hope, if there can be such a thing as false hope. Either there is hope or there is none, but hope cannot be wrong or false. The future is not written in stone. Nobody in this world can predict with complete certainty what is going to happen in the near or distant future."

"I began this system of healing in April 2002 when I spontaneously began to chant sounds in ancient languages, including Native Americans, Tibetan, Sanskrit and others. Within two weeks, I was able to bring forth sounds that would instantly remove emotional blocks and resistance or aversion to certain situations and people, foods, chemicals, thought forms, beliefs, etc."

"When you lose weight and become intent on remaking your life, you expose yourself to these ancient anxieties. Your critical conscience tells you that you can feel safe again only if you get fat again. Look at the most important family-assigned role you've been working on changing (everyone is always working on at least one). Ask yourself these questions: If I make the changes I want to make, would I really face unbearable punishment or be ostracized immediately and irrevocably, either by family, friends, or co-workers?"

"In the West, the therapeutic market has undergone profound changes in the past decades, allowing Westerners to have more access to ancient nonconventional therapies. A wide range of alternative treatments, including diet, nutritional products, herbal supplements, and other interventions, are providing therapeutic options. CAM approaches are so entrenched that, in 2006, The New York Times reported that 48 percent of adults in America used at least one alternative or complementary therapy during 2004."

"Braud had read the Vedas, India's bible of the ancient Hindus, which described siddhis, or psychic events, that would occur during profound meditative states. In the highest state, the meditator experiences feelings of a type of omniscient knowing - a sense of seeing everywhere at once. The subject enters a state of unity with the single object being focused upon. He or she also experiences the ability to achieve gross psychokinetic effects such as levitation and moving objects at a distance."

"This study determined that qigong, an ancient Chinese practice involving breathing exercises, meditation and body movements, alleviated depression in older adults. When compared with a control group, 41 depressed people over age 65 who practiced qigong three times a week for 16 weeks reported improved mood, self-confidence, self-esteem, personal wellbeing and physical health.

"Kalsa notes, "Aerobic reconditioning enhances mental function by 20 to 30 percent. The ancient art of brain regeneration, and innovative mind/body exercises derived from my 20 year practice of advanced yoga and meditation, are important in enhancing global brain energy." 4. The final phase comes from the forefront of anti-aging medicine. "Among pharmaceutical drugs used to help regenerate the brain cells is 1-deprenyl citrate. Deprenyl has been shown to increase longevity in animals and increase important biochemicals in the brain."

"In fact, people who have heart attacks have them most often in the morning. ancient and modern thinkers recommend that you don't get up, take a shower, or have your coffee first thing. Take a little time for yourself—this has been scientifically shown to be one of the most important things you can do to put on a suit of armor against stress and have a great day." Many people wake up tense because they have been unable to sleep."

"Qi gong is an ancient Chinese practice that uses aerobic exercise, meditation, relaxation techniques and isometrics to control the vital energy of the body in the most efficient way. Like many Chinese therapies, it emphasizes the unity of mind, spirit and world. According to a 2006 study, Qi gong was found to reduce the symptoms of depression after eight weeks of practice. Bipolar Disorder (Manic Depression) Bipolar disorder, also known as manic depression, affects 5.7 million American adults annually. It manifests as serious cycles of depression and mania."

"Like Benson, I was intrigued by "masters" of intention: practitioners of ancient disciplines—Buddhism, Qigong, shamanism, traditional native healing—who had been trained to perform extraordinary acts through their thoughts. I wanted to work out their common denominators. Do the steps taken by a qigong master to send qi resemble those of a Buddhist monk during meditation? Which mental disciplines ensure that a healer will enter a state enabling him to repair another person's body?"

"It was portrayed in ancient Egyptian wall paintings showing somebody having what we call a muscle wasting disease and urinating copiously. One of the earliest known records of diabetes spoke of frequent urination, or "polyuria," as a symptom on papyrus written by Hesy-Ra, a Third Dynasty Egyptian physician.24 During the first century AD, Arateus described diabetes as "the melting down of flesh and limbs into urine," and Galen of Pergamum, a Greek physician, felt diabetes was a form of kidney failure.25 Then, it was rare; today, it is pandemic."

"One of the surest ways to develop this is to practice the ancient art of mindfulness, espoused as long ago as 500 BC by Shakya-muni Buddha, founder of Buddhism. It is a discipline whereby you maintain clear moment-to-moment awareness of what is happening internally and externally, rather than coloring your interpretation with your emotions or being engaged "elsewhere," deep in thought. More than just concentration, mindfulness requires that you police the focus of your concentration and maintain that concentration in the present."
