"To appreciate just how small the average human cell is, imagine marking off one inch on a piece of paper. If you laid average-size cells side by side, you would be able to fit 1,270 into that inch.12 If you are like most people, you can hardly conceive of anything so small. So it comes as a shock to think that a cell, which seems so incredibly tiny as to be almost nothing, is intricately structured and massively crowded."

"And so, again, metabolism can't be blamed. The average person consumes 60 million calories during his or her lifetime. In order to stay at a steady weight you have to expend 60 million calories. That's the basic balance. If you make the slightest mistake in this balancing act, you immediately become overweight. For example, if you're an average man who needs 2,700 calories a day to remain at a steady weight but you take in 2,800 and expend only 2,700, you will gain 12 pounds every year. An apple is about 100 calories. That's just an apple a day difference."

"CHAPTER 9 Special Cases: When ''Average Person'' Doesn't Apply CHILDREN Most diagnostic and treatment plans are designed for the "average" person: a 150-pound adult who is not pregnant and has a single, well-defined illness. The real world, however, is not so average. Real people often have needs that are remarkably unlike the statistically average person. If you or your loved one simply does not fit into the average category, this chapter vvdll show you how to get the best results with your unique circumstances. The special cases we'll discuss include the following."

"There are also pronounced differences in the average DHEA levels of men and women, with women on average having lower DHEA levels. If you are going to take DHEA, I suggest you do it under the care of your doctor. Ideally, DHEA replacement therapy should begin with blood testing to establish a base range. Generally the suggested starting dosage of DHEA is 25 to 50 milligrams for men and 5 to 10 milligrams for women, taken in the morning before breakfast. Optimally you want your DHEA level to be 250 to 500 ug/dL for males and 150 to 350 ug/dL for females."

"The Schumann resonance frequency ranges from about 5 to 50 hertz, with an average frequency of between 7 and 10 hertz. That average just happens to match the alpha range of human brain waves, so there is wide speculation, and growing evidence, that the Schumann resonance affects the human brain. The heart also is tuned closely to this range of frequencies. The late New Zealand scientist Neil Cherry was among the most well-known of researchers who studied both the Schumann resonance and extremely low frequency (ELF) waves in relation to human health."

"The group members, who actively shared feelings, lived twice as long on average as the control subjects (36.6 months for the group members versus an average of 18.9 months for the others). And the group members reported experiencing 50 percent less pain. We want to emphasize that this approach isn't about positive thinking. Its benefit comes from the open expression of all emotions, a hallmark of this phase of Recasting."

"Asking the average doctor to recommend a natural treatment or supplement is like asking your piano teacher to recommend a tennis racket. the highest prescribers. "The highest prescribers are every rep's sugar mommies and daddies," writes Ahari. The article further detailed how a sales force of 100,000 drug reps (one drug rep per 2.5 targeted physicians) provides "rationed doses of samples, gifts, services, and flattery" to those physicians who are likely to prescribe the rep's drug."

"Another possibility was that people in one region were simply healthier, on average, while the people in a neighboring region, for whatever reason, had more tonsillitis, varicose veins, appendicitis, or breast cancer. But neither explanation sat well with Wennberg and Gittelsohn. For one thing, the idea that patient demand could account for such huge variation, that parents in Morrisville, for instance, were insisting that their children undergo surgery to remove their tonsils ten times more often than parents in Middlebury, didn't make much sense."

"Any deficit of this important nutrient can have a strong impact upon cognitive function, and supplementation with it can dramatically improve cognitive function in patients who have a deficit. The average daily diet generally provides about 1,000 mg. of this nutrient, so a multiple of this amount may be necessary to achieve noticeable improvement in cognitive function. As I've mentioned, to produce acetylcholine, phosphatidylcholine must bond with DMAE and with vitamin B-5, so it may be necessary to also take extra amounts of all of these nutrients to achieve a noticeable boost in cognition."

"Correcting this Terrain can bring on flulike episodes, lasting on average from a few hours to about three days, as the virtual imprint of these ubiquitous viruses tend to persist in the body-field. This Terrain also is bioenergetically linked to more virulent viral families that cause such illnesses as severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS). Energetic Terrain 7 Energetic Terrain 7 has a wide bioenergetic reach, encompassing the encephalon of the brain, the central nervous system, pituitary gland, thyroid, pancreas, small intestine, and liver."

"A cardiac surgeon writing in the New England Journal of Medicine estimated that in 1980 members of his specialty were earning an average of $3co,ooo a year on bypass surgeries alone. When the other surgeries they performed were included, their incomes could easily top $ coo,000, the equivalent of more than $ 1 million in 200c. Between 19C0 and 1978, physician fees rose 43 percent faster than other wages, and within a little more than a decade of Medicare's enactment, total spending on health care exceeded 1 o percent of the gross national product."
- Shannon Brownlee, Overtreated: Why Too Much Medicine Is Making Us Sicker and Poorer (Get the book.)

"Total health care spending went up an average of 12.7 percent a year throughout the 1970s, in large measure because hospitals had no reason to be efficient and every reason to run up the bill, which they did by keeping patients around for as long as possible and by buying equipment and expanding the number of beds and staff. Hospital expansion had already been encouraged by the Hill-Burton Act, passed in 1946, which provided funds to states to build new hospitals and expand existing ones."

"The sample menus we provide show you how to put together meals that will give you an average score of 70 over the course of a week. You can use our menus or make up your own from the recipes we've given you, but still aim for at least 60 points each day. Since greens are highest in nutrient density, the secret to getting a high score is to include as many greens in your diet as possible. Even though the Phase One menus are not the pinnacle of nutritional excellence, they still contain more than triple the level of nutrients consumed by most Americans."

"In 2003, the average age of a mother giving birth for the first time rose to a record high of 25.2, an increase of almost four years since 1970. Between 1991 and 2001 alone, the number of first births per one-thousand women aged thirty-five to thirty-nine increased by 36 percent, and by 70 percent among women aged forty to forty-four. While I think it's great that women today are waiting longer to start their families, prospective mothers over age thirty-five need to take stock of the risks they face during pregnancy, like developing gestational diabetes or high blood pressure."

"But in recent years, a new side has emerged to the breastfeeding debate: What about all the toxins the average childbearing-age woman is carrying around inside her? Are they contaminating the baby through breast milk? In recent years, the Environmental Working Group's staggering findings have raised a number of doubts about the benefits of breastfeeding. Various toxins, like mercury, have been shown to pass into a mother's breast milk. In light of these findings, people have begun to ask, Is it safe to expose newborn babies to so many toxins?"

"Spectrum Organics canola oil • Spectrum Organics safflower oil Beverages and Juices The average American gets one-fifth of his total daily calories from beverages. Most popular beverages—sodas, juices, shakes, and even coffee drinks—are packed with sugars or artificial sweeteners, artificial colors, and other additives. I avoid these beverages and stick with good old-fashioned water, which is calorie, sugar, and additive free. If you want flavor, try adding a slice of lemon or lime or some fresh-cut herbs (mint is delicious)."

"They note, for example, that a can of tuna fish contains an average of 17 micrograms of mercury, compared to 12.5 micrograms in a single dose of the hepatitis-B vaccine. However, as the prominent physician Stephanie Cave, M.D., has pointed out: Because infants and children are so much smaller than adults, their bodies are more sensitive to toxins. When mercury is consumed in food, such as tuna, it is partially detoxified by the liver, and does less damage than mercury that is injected into the bloodstream."

"The Institute of Medicine reported in 2001, to the dismay of members of the medical establishment, that it takes an average of "15 to 20 years for new scientific knowledge to percolate down into everyday medical practice."35 Theoretical shifts that could change the very understanding of the fundamentals of science can take even longer to become widely known and accepted. Physiologist Gilbert Ling provides a sobering example of how slow science can be to change, even when a radical new theory is backed by impeccable and replicable experiments."

"In an average month, I may have only three lucid dreams. Proportionally, more than ninety-six percent of my remembered dreams occur in the non-lucid form, and four percent or less in the lucid form. While at one time I recorded thirty lucid dreams in a month (in college) at my prime quantitatively, two to five lucid dreams per month seem the norm nowadays. Like all dreamers, if we purposely ignore a dream message, it likely returns in another dream or some other form. All dreamers come to know that in the final analysis, lucid or not, there is no escape from the Self."

"Although for the average patient there typically is not an increased risk of bleeding, if you are taking aspirin or another NSAID you should be on another medication like Prilosec to protect your stomach. In my clinical experience as a psychiatrist, I have found there to be a real but small risk of a condition called akathisia, a feeling of internal restlessness and agitation, associated with changes in doses of SSRIs, which can lead to suicidal thoughts and behavior. No one has yet shown that SSRIs increase the rates of completed or "successful" suicides in either adults or children."

"As an example, we'll track the case history of Jim, an average 40-year-old American. Below is Jim's Personal Health Line at birth. ro CD X CD > CD Optimum Symptoms Death Immune Heart Cancer etc. figure 3 As we can see from Jim's line above, he was born with a slight weakness (either genetic or as a result of his parents' lifestyle and environment) in his heart and circulatory system. Note also, that at birth, Jim is in relatively good health and is symptom free (as no point of his Personal Health Line dips below the Line of Symptoms)."

"The average super organic farm will use upwards of 100 tons of organic matter per acre per year. Nutritional Stress A second factor we have to consider is nutritional stress. We're just exposed to far more environmental and pollution stresses than our bodies were ever designed to handle—more than the human body has ever before been required to handle in the history of the world."

"If you have any doubt about this, just consider the fact that Americans are among the highest consumers of dairy in the world, eating an average of600 pounds of dairy a year per person—and yet we have one of the highest incidences of osteoporosis in the civilized world! 3. Unnatural Fats: The Number 1 Dietary Problem Food manufacturers love hydrogenated oils because hydrogenation makes those oils thicker, creamier, and more appetizing to the consumer. Unfortunately, hydrogenation also saturates the oils' fatty acids, changing them into trans-fatty acids."

"Super organic, when you can find it, has on average, twice the nutritional value of standard organic (which, as we've already seen, has several times the food value of conventionally grown food). To give you a sense of the extent of these differences, consider: • Conventional farms use no compost at all in the growing of their crops. Instead, they rely on chemical fertilizers that have a limited range of nutrients—just what the plant requires to grow, which is why they are so deficient in the nuttients that people need. (And of course, we won't even talk about taste."

"At-risk individuals who met with a nutritionist who helped them change their diet and lifestyle (more exercise, less fat and saturated fat, more fiber) cut their risk of developing diabetes by 58%, even though they only lost eight pounds on average. Prevention of diabetes with lifestyle intervention was more effective than medication (metformin), with a 58% reduction in new-onset diabetes in at-risk patients, compared to 31 % for those taking metformin."
