"This helps your body raise its metabolic thermic effect, stops the high and lows of blood glucose balancing and helps eliminate the starving syndrome. 2. balance your intake of good carbs, proteins and healthy fats. 3. Consume the same amount of calories that you use up in a day. Here's a way to approximate that number: For adult males: Multiply the body weight by 10; add double the body weight to this value. For example for a 150 lb male, 1,500 + (2 x 150) = 1,800 calories a day. For adult females: Multiply body weight by 10; add the body weight to this value."

"When the two processes are in balance, bone mass and strength are constant. When bone resorption becomes dominant, osteoporosis occurs. Quick Recipe This high protein, vegetarian salad is very quick and easy to prepare. In fact it can be made in just 15 minutes from start to finish, and kept for several days in the refrigerator, getting more flavorful as it marinates. Using fresh herbs and a small amount extra virgin olive oil makes this a healthier, flavorful salad than many of those with high fat dressings."

"They are opposites of each other, yet they complement and balance each other. Indeed, they cannot exist without one another. To enjoy good health, yin and yang must be in dynamic balance. For example, rest must follow activity, and coolness holds back heat. Yin and yang are always in motion. They support each other and transform into each other. In relationship to disease, there are four imbalances of yin and yang. These imbalances can cause a disease, or alternately, the imbalances can result from disease. The imbalances are vacuity of yin or yang, and repletion of yin or yang."

"Eleuthero is considered an adaptogen, which means that it helps return the body to a normal balance. As an example, an adaptogen might lower blood pressure in someone who has high blood pressure, but raise it in another person who has low blood pressure. Eleuthero purportedly enhances physical endurance and mental concentration. Where to buy it: Vitamin stores, health food stores and sometimes at your local drug store. How much to take: It comes in capsule form. Follow the recommended dose on the package. Hops Humulus lupulus L. or Cannabaceae Why:You've probably heard of hops."

"Quick Tip 2: The balance between calories, carbohydrates and protein in a meal affects different people in different ways. This is not an exact science. You need to figure out which combinations work the best for you, giving you energy and alertness when you need it. Some people need more calories to function because they have higher metabolisms, while others need less. Experiment and adjust your calories accordingly."

"Illness, balance and Health To a homeopath, illness is an energy imbalance that occurs first at the most fundamental levels of the person. This underlying imbalance is the cause of disease and shows itself eventually in the body as symptoms, which are created by the body in the process of trying to correct the imbalance. It is the imbalance itself that homeopathy addresses, using the symptoms as a guide to the natural substance that can be of assistance in the process. If you are in perfect balance, which is unusual, you will not develop any symptoms."

"CURBING CRAVINGS There's another benefit to restoring this balance, which is important to your weight-loss journey. When you consume equal quantities of omega-3 and omega-6 fats, your compulsion to eat sweet, sugary food will cease. That's right! It's amazing how many of my patients volunteer this information. In my research, I've found that sugar cravings stem from an imbalance of "green" and "beige" fat consumption and the resultant overproduction of pain and inflammation hormones and underproduction of pain relieving, anti-inflammatory hormones."

"Proper bacterial balance benefits digestive health and therefore overall health. There are internal and external sources of both harmful and beneficial bacteria. The digestive system is designed to produce beneficial bacteria to keep the population of harmful bacteria in check. Your health depends on the beneficial bacteria prevailing. One way to increase your numbers of beneficial bacteria is to take a probiotic dietary supplement. It is important to find a probiotic with a delivery system that ensures protection against stomach acid so the bacteria can be delivered to the intestines."

"To restore the proper energy balance, the body experiences a craving for sugar. If this need is satisfied again with a bad sugar, the resulting release of more insulin eventually exhausts the pancreas, and the body's internal environment becomes acidified from the repeated intake of sugar. This in turn increases the body's demand for sugar, since the main symptom of acidification is fatigue. A vicious circle is created, similar to the one we examined with coffee."

"It is important to know that the transition from one figure to the next on this scale of measurement is not arithmetical but logarithmic, meaning that the values separating each unit are not of equal value along the scale but increase in proportion to their distance from the midway point of an even balance between acidity and alkalinity. The values are multiplied by 10 at each unit (see diagram "The pH scale," p. 7)."

"In nutritional studies, the term balance refers to the difference between the amount of a nutrient entering the body and the amount leaving. If someone is in positive calcium balance, they are excreting less than they are taking in, and their total-body calcium content is increasing. If they are in negative calcium balance, they are excreting more than they are taking in, and their total-body calcium content is declining. For a person in calcium balance (also called zero calcium balance) the intake and output are the same, and the total-body calcium content remains steady."

"So, how do you restore the balance? It's actually simpler than you think. In the Teardown phase, you have kept the main sources of omega-6 fats-"beige" and "white" foods-out of sight. Evolving our diet back to how people ate about a century ago restores the normal balance of 1:1 between omega-3 and omega-6 fats. Now you understand why I don't limit your consumption of olive oil and keep pushing greens, as well as recommend you eat grass-fed beef, free-range chickens, and wild-caught fish."

"Under normal circumstances, the four hundred to five hundred varieties of microorganisms that make up the healthy intestinal flora cohabit harmoniously. A balance is maintained between the sizes of these different populations, the areas of the territories they occupy, the sections of the intestines they colonize, and the portions of the foods to which each has a right. Because they are so precisely distributed, it is very difficult for foreign microorganisms to invade in force; all the niches in the intestines for microorganisms to reside and thrive are already being judiciously exploited."

"A factor as obvious as the desert's daytime heat may be significant; as we have seen, the delicate balance that pushed bacterium, flea, and rat out of their rough equipoise occurred only within a narrow temperature range, and only when that balance was upset did Y. pestis jump into other mammalian populations. Equally persuasive is the idea that the relative sluggishness of desert trade—caravans that were slower than both ships and the ox carts that ttaveled the empire's roads—made for a poor highway over which to carry an infection that burned itself out in a week or so."

"In the discussions that follow, you will learn which of the four major neurotransmitters is involved in each of the pauses and what you can do to balance your body and delay onset of the pause. The earlier you begin to deal with hormone loss, the better results you are going to get. For treatment instructions, please refer to the chapters in Part II that discuss each of these biochemicals in detail. If your symptoms are mild, you can begin by altering your diet or lifestyle by incorporating the various biochemical programs."

"Substitutes include: non-dairy spreads without trans-fats and hydrogenated oil such as Earth balance, Smart balance, and Spectrum. Changing your body for the better is an exciting journey and a rewarding accomplishment. This will be a process that requires time and effort and the ability to learn from mistakes. Give your taste buds time to adjust to new food choices. Be easy on yourself if you slip up, but don't give up the plan. Get right back on track quickly. The only failure is to stop trying. You will experience more rewards from this program as you stick to it longer."

"NUTRIENTS, DIET AND HEALTH Diversity and balance Good nutrition and healthy living require diversity and balance. By eating a wide range of different foods, we improve the probability that all the essential ingredients are present in the diet. balance is equally important, as too much proteins or too much fat can be as detrimental as too little. It is the combination of food in our diet that keeps us healthy, and plants provide a large proportion of our daily energy and nutritional needs."

"Our bodies," he said, "are designed to maintain a delicate balance between what we eat as food and what we burn as energy, and between making a strong immune response to a serious infection but not to a dust mite. Prescription and over-the-counter medications can disturb these balances. Many psychotropic, antiseizure, antihistamine, and antidiabetic medications also promote weight gain. The steroids that someone might take to control their asthma can also increase body fat and over-suppress their immune systems, making them more susceptible to infections."

"Specific environmental irritants—airborne, food, and water contaminants (including tobacco smoke, pesticides, heavy metals, pet and pest dander, food allergens) and infectious agents (viruses, molds)—along with stress interact with certain genetic predispositions to throw the immune system off balance. Allergies often result from this imbalance, and once the immune system is disordered in this way, other allergies are likely to follow. The best approach would be to prevent this disruption from ever occurring, which you can do in a number of ways, according to Dr."

"With attention to these four elements, you give your body the best possible chance to stay healthy and in balance, increasing your odds of living a long, healthy life. THE FOOD FACTOR Every biochemical action on a cellular level is fueled by a vitamin or mineral cofactor. Vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and amino acids fuel our bodies to keep us healthy and active. Even marginal nutritional deficiencies can limit our vitality, compromise our immunity, and damage our health. This means our food selections are of utmost importance."

"Maintaining the proper balance of LDL to HDL cholesterol is a more appropriate goal. Because LDL can turn into plaque, you don't want to have more than 130 mg/dl. Cholesterol levels are considered healthy when the total is less than 200 mg/dl and HDL levels are greater than 40 mg/dl. Healthy blood pressure levels are also critical to heart health."

"The same strategy that helps you keep your hormones in balance can help you prevent the deadly illnesses associated with aging. Dietary supplementation can also play a role in mamtaining heart health. Coenzyme Q10 (CoQIO) is a natural, fat-soluble nutrient essential for cellular energy synthesis. Heart cells require large amounts of uninterrupted energy. The average heart beats 72 dmes a minute or 38 million times a year. CoQIO supports heart health by contributing to healthy circulation, blood pressure, and endurance."

"The number 7 indicates the ideal balance between acid and alkaline substances and is known as a neutral pH. The greater potential a substance has for freeing hydrogen ions, the smaller is its pH number. The acidity range is from 6 to 0, zero indicating a state of absolute acidity. Conversely, a more alkaline pH is indicated by a higher figure, from 8 to 14, the last figure representing a state of total alkalinity (meaning a state in which no hydrogen ions are freed). 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 : ii.....

"She never takes time to balance her checkbook, is always getting overdrawn, and infuriated her husband because as a result they now have a poor credit rating. She would rather ignore the checkbook than realize how little is there and get disappointed. She creates a lot of unnecessary stress for herself by not managing her time, and then when she's under stress, she always ends up bingeing. Unexpected Sources of Stress Stress is not what happens to us. It's our response to what happens. And response is something we can choose."

"When you decide to fulfill a need, you have to balance your responsibilities, values, and loves, so any decision is by necessity a complex trade-off that only you can make. But when you engage in that complex trade-off you're operating in the real world of today, outside the domain of Harriet. That's your freedom space. Linda decided to go back to school, though she also had a responsibility to be home for her kids by three o'clock."

"In Greece, on the other hand, the king's fate seems to have hung in the balance at the end of every eight years . . . Without being unduly rash we may surmise that the tribute of seven youths and seven maidens whom the Athenians were bound to send to Minos every eight years had some connexion with the renewal of the king's power for another octennial cycle" (ibid., p. 280). The bull sacrifice required of King Minos implied that he would sacrifice himself, according to the pattern of the inherited tradition, at the close of his eight-year term."

"DHEA is necessary to moderate the balance of hormones in your body. When DHEA is produced at optimal levels, it functions to promote the loss of body fat. Double-blind clinical trials have found 100 mg per day of DHEA to be effective in decreasing body fat in older men. Conversely, when the body's DHEA levels are insufficient, body fat is more difficult to budge. Recently, a female patient named Shirley complained that she had gained fifteen pounds in the last nine months."
