"But as studies are showing, children who are taught to avoid refined carbohydrates literally transform their mental states and behavior in a matter of days. They become more focused, more calm, and gain the ability to focus on the task at hand. Their handwriting even improves markedly The most likely explanation for why refined carbohydrates cause depression is because the consumption of refined carbohydrates depletes the body of essential vitamins and minerals, and those vitamins and minerals are absolutely necessary for a healthy mental state."

"It is essential that individuals with a strong family history of Alzheimer's disease and those having had a stroke or high blood pressure avoid excitotoxin food additives. The simplest way to do this is to restrict foods from your diet that contain excitotoxin taste enhancers such as MSG, hydrolyzed vegetable protein, and aspartame. - Russell Blaylock, M.D., Excitotoxins: The Taste That Kills Aspartame and heat Aspartame is also known to break down more quickly when exposed to heat."

"I recommend that you avoid this chemical additive like the plague. It is broken down in the body into harmful components, including formaldehyde (a known toxin and carcinogen), formic acid (the poison in ant stings), and methanol (a nervous system toxin also known as free methyl alcohol). High intake of aspartame has been linked with a number of adverse effects, including headache, vision loss, seizures, mood disorders, and other nervous system problems."

"Women who suffer greatly on high-carbohydrate diets often report remarkable improvements in both comfort and mood when they choose to avoid these processed carbs. The explanation for this probably rests in the nutritional deficiencies caused by eating refined carbohydrates. As mentioned above, refined carbohydrates deplete the body of the B vitamins, and B vitamins are extremely important for healthy hormonal balance in women, especially during menstruation.

"To minimize exposure, use only filtered drinking water, thoroughly wash fruit before eating, read labels, and avoid any products that contain fluoride. Pesticides According to the World Health Organization, more than 3 million people become ill and 220,000 die worldwide annually because of pesticides. Pesticides harm humans and animals alike. In the U.S., it is reported that more than one-third of the calls to animal poison centers result from pets exposed to pesticides."

"The subtext of much of their natural medicine approach was to help the sick person achieve harmony between heaven and Earth, to align with the natural fields and to avoid the geopathic stress fields that adversely affect the energies of the human body. Geopathic stress relates specifically to the health effects of vibrations and fields that emanate from Earth's interior and flow across its surface."

"It also links to mental stagnation, especially as the tendency to avoid processing emotions. ENERGETIC INTEGRATOR 2: HEART/LUNG MERIDIAN Energetic Integrator 2 is linked primarily with the organs of your chest cavity, and secondarily its path runs through the entire upper midline of your body. This Integrator matches bioenergetically to heart tissue, especially the myocardium, and to the pulmonary valve, but not to pulmonary circulation. Energetic Integrator 2 deals with how energy flows between the left and right chambers of your heart."

"As much as possible, avoid those things that are harmful to your health as indicated in chapter 6. 3 Work to strengthen and improve the health of your body's digestive and elimination systems. 4 As much as you are able to, correct the wrongs that are present in your life, such as mercury amalgams and smoking. 5 Choose not to use, any more than is absolutely necessary, any harmful chemicals, pesticides, tobacco, or food additives. 6 Reduce your exposure to emf and emr-emitting electrical devices. Regarding geopathic energies, look at animals to identify them."

"I began to offer my Diet Evolution program to patients I had operated on, in the hope that it would enable them to avoid a second operation. My office nurse, nurse practitioner, and office manager all started the program and lost 72 pounds, 45 pounds, and 42 pounds, respectively. Then one fateful day, I was referred a patient with 90 percent blockage in the main artery to the brain. He needed a carotid endarterectomy, which entails opening up the artery, removing the plaque, and sewing it back up."

"You should limit your time at restaurants to once a week. avoid fast food, which is usually served in excessively large portions: A single meal typically contains twice the fat and saturated fat that you should be eating. Incorporate fresh vegetables into your meals. Eat fruit after every meal. The high fiber decreases the risk of cancer and aids digestion as well as weight loss. Don't eat red meat more than twice a week. Eat three to six ounces of fish or shellfish twice a week or more. Watch out for the mercury in canned tuna."

"Similarly, to avoid wasting their efforts on chasing the fastest, largest prey, lions and other carnivores target the injured, the sick, the old, the young, and the distracted. If a big cat realizes it cannot quickly run down its prey, it breaks off the chase to conserve energy. Despite their very different lifestyles, both carnivores and herbivores expend very little energy overall. Remember, populations flourish when the greatest number of calories can be obtained with the least effort. What do flesh eaters such as wolves, lions, coyotes, and, of course, dogs and cats do most of the time?"

"Remember the second and third rules: avoid pain and find pleasure. The grain in the rat chow rapidly breaks down into sugar, stimulating the pleasure center; but stop eating, and the sugar load drops and the pain resurfaces. The sugar doesn't eliminate the pain, but it does make it tolerable?although the more sugar the brain is exposed to, the more it takes to control pain. Moreover, stress also activates the killer genes. After all, a stressed-out rat doesn't have a good combination of genes to keep around."

"This chapter will provide a brief overview of the three phases of the program and lists of what I call "Friendly Foods," "Unfriendly Foods," and finally "Foods to Banish Initially," which you will avoid for a while and can later add back in moderation. You'll undoubtedly be referring to this chapter frequently until you are completely familiar with both the foods you'll be eating and those to which you'll bid farewell. Before you start any weight-loss program, you should see your physician. Ideally, he or she can run some baseline tests against which to track your progress."

"So even if you consume only commercial rather than organic produce, if you limit your meat, fish, dairy, and poultry intake, you can partially avoid this pesticide and industrial chemical burden. The Bad News About Meat ?"

"Precaution: avoid turmeric compounds in your diet if you have allergies or autoimmune diseases since consumption of curcumin may aggravate the symptoms. Ginger root, with its sweet aroma and pungent taste, is widely used as a spice. It is also known to contain some very potent antioxidant compounds. Most of the isolated compounds from ginger exhibit even stronger antioxidant properties than vitamin E. Ginger is a potent antioxidant that can inhibit blood clots (platelet clumping). Tea Since ancient times tea has been associated with maintaining body and soul."

"Just how do the French manage to avoid cardiac problems? Apparendy fat is not the most important dietary item when it comes to heart disease. The French drink very little milk, enjoy large portions of fresh vegetables and fruit, and drink wine with most meals. In fact the average French person drinks nine times as much wine as an American. So it now seems that red wine, a French cultural necessity, has a direct bearing on slashing heart disease. Red wine is one of the most recent substances linked to the chemoprevention of heart disease!"

"Never eat organ meats like liver and kidney. avoid canned foods. Get a daily supply of: ūVitamin C ūCalcium ūZinc ūSelenium ūSulfur amino acids (cysteine, methionine) ūEssential fats (soybeans or walnuts) Foods that are high in calcium include oranges, spinach, rhubarb, collards, dried figs, turnips, kale, okra, tofu (or soybeans), white and pinto beans, broccoli, and baked beans Precautions Be careful with supplements. Some zinc supplements are contaminated with cadmium. Also, cadmium is absorbed from drinking water more than from other dietary sources."

"Infinity is a number to avoid in the mathematics of most physics theories, because no measurable value can have an infinite value. In physics, it is not useful for explaining reality to assume that an object or body has infinite energy or infinite mass. So physicists came up with a way to delete the infinities from their mathematics, using a process called renormalization. How do infinities creep into quantum mechanics? Remember from our discussion in chapter 1 that a quantum particle is really not like a little billiard ball but is instead more like an inherently fuzzy probability cloud."

"So, you'll alter your fitness regimen to avoid activities that unduly impact the knee; cycling for a couple of months sounds reasonable, maybe swimming a little. This too shall pass. Regional knee pain at age fifty-five. Maybe it was the abuse from playing football in high school, although you don't remember any severe injuries. You have been a recreational jogger since college, but that's no explanation; there are studies of people like you and they do fine, better than most. You are fit and enjoy the fact that your lifestyle, on and off the job, is far from sedentary."

"Others have suggested that amylase helps the body identify allergens as nonharmful, and thus actually avoid producing the histamine. I suspect it is a bit of both. (See L. Desser, A. Rehberger, "Induction of tumor necrosis factor in human peripheral-blood mononuclear cells by proteolytic enzymes," Oncology 47 (1990): 475-77.) Carbohydrases are also good at raising blood sugar. The carbohydrases from fungal sources are amylase, maltase, glucoamylase, alpha-galacto-sidase, hemicellulase, xylanase, pectinase, and phytase."

"For people with a healthy diet, it is not a problem. To avoid the problem of potassium depletion with diuretics you can also take potassium supplements orally every day. One of these drugs, the so-called thiazide-like diuretic indapamide (Lozol), can cause life-threatening drops of sodium in the blood. In 1992 the Australian authorities reported 164 cases of this potentially life-threatening condition, which is associated with confusion, lethargy, nausea, vomiting, dizziness, loss of appetite, fatigue, fainting, sleepiness, and possible convulsions."

"Of course, it's great if you can start resistance training before you enter menopause, but even if you start later you will avoid the usual bone loss and even increase bone density slightly. The Bottom Line First and foremost, I cannot emphasize enough the importance of a healthy diet and exercise for maintaining strong bones and thus good mobility and a better quality of life."

"There may be other, specific foods that trigger symptoms that you can learn to avoid. (Contrary to myth, spicy foods do not make dyspepsia worse.) Although alcohol, smoking, and caffeine can exacerbate ulcers or GERD, they don't have a specific relationship to functional dyspepsia. Proton pump inhibitors, or PPIs (see page 159), have not been shown to be effective treatments for functional dyspepsia. Cisapride (Propulsid), used in the treatment of functional dyspepsia, is a medication that stimulates release of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine."

"It would appear that our society is being conditioned to avoid fruit, and that other, less nutritional substances are being promoted in its place. It is imperative that people with asthma eat fruit, preferably three or four pieces per day, because fruit is rich in vitamins and minerals. A Diet for Asthmatics Hippocrates, the Greek father of medicine from the fourth century BC, summed up lifestyle and good health in a clear and forthright manner with his advice: 'Let your food be your medicine'. To improve your general health look closely at the food you eat."

"However, if you choose to 'do it yourself do investigate the content and nutrient value of supplements. avoid any where the ingredients contain artificial colourings or preservatives. You will sometimes see the labels list 'chelated' minerals—these are more readily digestible than ordinary minerals and so absorbed better. Try a course of one particular supplement at a time. Don't start on a cocktail of pills otherwise you may never know just which one is really doing you good."

- Dr Ron Roberts, Asthma Controlled Naturally: Techniques That Work (Get the book.)

"The most effective ways to treat your asthmatic condition are to revitalise your immune system with good nutrition, decrease the toxins in your body, avoid allergy triggers and conditions and exercise regularly. Have a balanced diet including lots of fruit and vegetables, grown chemical-free if possible, and increase the range of vitamins, minerals and herbs you eat. Remember, the decision is yours. Good health is a choice?how good do you want to feel? Changing or improving your diet is a positive step in the right direction."

"Note: avoid giving garlic to children under five years of age. If you have a clotting disorder consult your doctor about acceptable medicinal levels. Garlic's odour is noticeable and the taste is strong. As a result many people are not comfortable with eating large amounts of raw garlic, or drinking garlic tea. This drawback has been overcome by the development of odourless garlic capsules or tablets, although some herbalists feel that these are less effective than the fresh clove."

"And this, ACE inhibitors work only slightly better than aspirin—for which 93 people must be treated to avoid a cardiac event!28 Two conclusions are clear. Compared to ACE inhibitors, common diuretics work better for primary prevention; aspirin works almost as well for secondary prevention. TWO MORALITY TALES Problems notwithstanding, ACE inhibitors, and especially statins, have saved lives. Our readers, having gotten this far in this book, surely welcomed the generally good news. And rightly so."
- Gerald E. Markle and Frances B. McCrea, What If Medicine Disappeared? (Get the book.)

"Whenever possible, our personal practice is to avoid contact with the medical community. Ignoring expert advice, we rarely give blood or tissue for routine screening. We just don't want to medicalize our lives, at least any more than necessary. Some might call this shortsighted. Perhaps it is, but we try not to dwell on the state of our health. Yet when we do have a health scare, we eschew local service and seek out the very best care available."
