"But first, you need to familiarize yourself with some basic facts. Getting Educated And surely we are all out of the computation of our age, and every man is some months elder than he bethinks him; for we live, move, have a being, and are subject to the actions of the elements and the malice of diseases, in that other world, the truest Microcosm, the Womb of our Mother." —Sir Thomas Browne, Religio Medici (1643) The umbilical cord connects the mother to her baby, carrying blood and nutrients from the placenta to the child within the womb."

"An enormous amount of both clinical and experimental evidence has accumulated over the past decade supporting this basic premise.47 These excitotoxins are food additives such as MSG, hydrolyzed vegetable protein, and aspartame.This excitotoxins increase our cravings for the junk foods they are added to and thus make people more vulnerable to the problems associated with junk foods and diabetogenic foods because the excitotoxins stimulate the appetite rather than activate the satiety response."

"Here are the four basic means to get your greens: One: Eat your greens Two: Make blended green soups Three: Make blended green smoothies with chia seeds or low-glycemic fruits, if your blood sugar is stable for six months Four: Juice your greens into green vegetable juice (GVJ) Food in any of these forms travels easily in a Tupperware or drinking container, can be taken on the go just about anywhere, and all Four Means can be prepared in advance at home, ready for you at every point in your day."

"John Tilden writes in the chapter "Toxemia" in Herbert Shelton's The History of Natural Hygiene: The toxin theory of the healing art is grounded on the truth that toxemia is the basic source of all diseases. So sure and certain is this truth that I do not hesitate to say that it is by far the most satisfactory theory that has been advanced in all the history of medicine. It is a scientific system that covers the whole field of cause and effect—a system that synthesizes with all knowledge, hence a true philosophy."

"The sorbitol is involved in a variety of ways, but the basic mechanism can be seen in cataracts, as an example. High blood sugar, either from an inability to metabolize the sugar or by eating too much sugar foods, results in the shunting of glucose to the sorbitol pathway, which is a secondary pathway. But since the lens of the eye is impermeable to sorbitol, the lack of the polyol dehydrogenase enzyme occurs from excess demand, and the sorbitol accumulates to high concentrations. It persists even if glucose levels go to normal."

"A basic unit of heredity. Genes contain information in the form of DNA, which tells cells what to do and when to act. glomerular filtration rate: A measure of the ability of the kidneys to filter and eliminate waste products from the body, glomeruli: The network of tiny blood vessels in the kidneys through which blood is filtered and waste materials are removed, glucagon: A hormone, made by the pancreas, that raises the level of glucose in the blood. glucose: A simple sugar, present in the blood, that is the body's main energy source."

"We'll begin in this chapter with a basic introduction to diabetes, where we explain what's happening at the cellular level—specifically beta-cell function and insulin resistance (an inability of the body's cells and tissues to increase their intake of glucose [blood sugar] in response to the insulin that is circulating in the bloodstream), which are critical factors in the prevention and better management of diabetes. Wait, you may be thinking, isn't control of blood glucose levels the key to diabetes management?"

"Before you get started, here are some basic guidelines to ensure your sessions are effective, safe, and fun. ?Talk to your doctor before starting strength training. This is especially critical if you have high blood pressure or any type of heart or blood vessel disease. ?Always warm up before doing strength training. Five to seven minutes of dynamic stretching and brisk walking can warm up your muscles. A five-minute cooldown that includes various stretching exercises is also recommended. ?"

"We have divided the supplements into four basic categories (beta-cell health; insulin sensitizers; antiglycation agents; and antioxidants and anti-inflammatory agents) that mirror the key factors involved in metabolic dysfunction. Understand that the divisions are somewhat artificial, given that nutraceuticals have a fair degree of crossover and complementary effects and health benefits. As always, talk to your doctor before you begin any nu-traceutical program, especially if you are taking any type of medication."

"Natural foods not only contain larger amounts of these basic nutrients, but also contain thousands of phytochemicals that have never even been named. Since this short list of nutrients that manufacturers provide is not helpful, it makes sense to ignore it. Quick Guide to Reading Labels: • Food labels list ingredients in descending order. What's first on the ingredient list is present in the highest quantity. • Do not purchase foods that contain flour or sweeteners in the first four ingredients or that contain any hydrogenated (trans) fat, or chemical additives."

"The first basic cooking technique you will learn is water sauteing (also called sweating). This is used instead of cooking with oil. Water sauteing is simple and great for stir-fries, sauces and many other dishes. To water saute, heat a skillet on high heat until water sputters when dropped on the pan. Use small amounts of water in the hot skillet, wok, or pan, covering occasionally and adding more water when necessary until vegetables are tender."

"Protein is a basic part of all food. One of its primary constituents is methionine, an essential dietary amino acid needed for proper growth and maintenance of all the cells and tissues in the body. Normally, the liver processes methionine and breaks it down into homocysteine, another amino acid. The body recycles some of this homocysteine back into methionine again for protein use throughout the system. Unused homocysteine is excreted in the urine. This thrifty operation depends on three B-complex vitamins: folic acid, B-6, and B-12. They are necessary cofactors for the enzymes that detoxify."

"A well-balanced diet is the basic foundation of good health that you can give your children, and the best moment to develop their palates is at the very beginning of their lives. "Food is a powerfully addictive substance," Dr. Fuhrman said. "But once you start eliminating all the sugars and transfats and unhealthy additives, you'll find that you get more, not less, pleasure out of the foods you eat." As a family, make an effort to rekindle this pleasure. Eating shouldn't be a rushed obligation, something to be gotten over with as quickly as possible. It should be, as Dr."

"Of course, while there are only two basic emotions—love and fear—we can experience an infinite number of feelings. Examples are anger, compassion, rage, jealousy, gratitude, disbelief, and peace, to name only a few. In engineering terms, they are a vector form of energy. In other words, they are where the action is and can really get things done! Our feelings can change the world. Belief: A Special Kind of Feeling Belief is a form of feeling. When we hold a belief about something, we usually have a feeling—and often a strong one—about it."

"Anti-myelin basic protein (MBP) antibodies. • PANDAS profile. • ASO titer. • Anti-DNAse B titer. Tier Four Testing These tests, like those in Tier Three, may be done as treatment progresses. Not all patients will require these tests. However, most patients will receive challenge testing for heavy metals. The tests consist of: Provoked urine testing for heavy metals. Urinary porphyrins. Genetic polymorphisms. As I've indicated, I never begin a program by dictating to parents the tests that I insist they do."

"Again, we see that 4-A children have special needs for certain nutrients, which sometimes far exceed the requirements of the general public for basic health. The goal for 4-A children is not just to overcome deficiencies of B-6, but to employ B-6 as a therapeutic agent. Because B-6 sometimes triggers adverse symptoms, such as hyperactivity, irritability, and increased stims in some children, I monitor its use closely. Guidelines for giving B-6 include the following: Give it with food, to avoid stomach upset. Ensure proper levels ofzinc, to help metabolize B-6."

"I've often thought that there are two basic types of doctors: those who listen to their patients, and those who don't. I've always said, if you don't listen, you won't hear, and if you don't look, you won't see. So I tried the Feingold Diet, and got relatively good results in some children. Now, all these years later, I think I've figured out why restricting salicylates has been so helpful for many ADHD kids. It's not just because of the old theory that salicylates are frequently allergenic, but also because they are closely related to another natural food chemical called phenol."

"It is intended to be a permanent, ongoing set of improvements in basic habits and lifestyle. Many of the disorders and conditions that cause the symptoms of the 4-A disorders are chronic and intractable, and will remain indefinitely. Improvements in metabolic function and general health do occur, but even then, underlying weaknesses may remain. For example, IgE allergies tend to remain throughout life, regardless of treatment. Therefore, to lock in recovery, your child will probably also need to lock in some permanent changes. Healing Principle 3: The Healing Program is highly individualized."

"The stomach and small intestine have strong acidic and basic environments, and a relatively swift flow of materials. As such, the stomach and small intestine have relatively low concentrations of microflora as this is a difficult environment to live in. To humans, it would be like living in an environment with high winds and drastic changes in temperature from very hot to very cold. The duodenum is host to 10,000 to 100,000 (104 to 105 CFU/mL) microbes."
- Allison Tannis, Probiotic Rescue: How You can use Probiotics to Fight Cholesterol, Cancer, Superbugs, Digestive Complaints and More (Get the book.)

"As most probiotic supplements are ingested, they need to be able to survive the acidic environment of the stomach and the basic (alkaline) environment of the small intestine. Certain strains such as L. reuteri are naturally able to survive the acidic environment of the stomach. However, the majority of probiotics do not have a high survival rate in an acidic environment. Thus, enteric-coating probiotic capsules can be important."

"Some probiotic powders and chewables use probiotics strains that are resistant to acidic and basic environments. Using these supplements can ensure enough probiotics will make it to your intestines alive. Reliability Is the manufacturer reputable? Reliability is also a factor to consider when choosing a probiotic supplement. If after looking into the potency, formula and survivability of a probiotic supplement you are still unsure, you can ask your health food retailer about the manufacturer's track record and commitment to quality."

"Products contain some similar basic ingredients but vary widely thereafter. They all have differences in quality, forms of specific nutrients, and potencies. The percentages shown on the labels refer to the National Academy of Science's current RDAs—the recommended daily allowances of essential nutrients thought to be adequate to meet the nutritional needs of healthy people. These values constantly change as a result of ongoing research. Academy experts themselves acknowledge the values to be far from precise."

"Brain, heart, and muscle cells, the heaviest consumers of energy, fail to carry out their basic functions as nature intended. Tissues begin to degenerate. Heart muscle cells are packed with mitochondria. In fact, they make up about a third of the volume of these cells, more than any tissue in the body. That's obviously nature's way of generating the power necessary to stoke the heart's round-the-clock pumping action over a lifetime. The heart becomes extremely vulnerable as a result of reduced oxygen and energy due to arterial inflammation and occlusive plaque."

"For over five thousand years the household and the village had been the basic economic units that fed humanity. Families still fed themselves. Throughout history, the anonymous farmer always supported the elaborate superstructure of preindustrial civilization. Increasingly, agriculture became a matter of irrigation systems and canals, large-scale communal projects, taxation, and centralized grain storage. Governments and supreme rulers now became farmers, for they commanded the labor to build the irrigation systems, divert rivers, and transport grain."

"Associate Director for basic Research within the NIH's National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA). Since joining the staff of NIAAA in 1976, he has held a number of institute positions, from scientific review administrator to director of the Office of Scientific Affairs (OSA). During his twenty two years as OSA director, he was also the executive secretary for the National Advisory Council on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism. In February 1977, Dr. Warren organized the first national research workshop on fetal alcohol syndrome (FAS)."

"The first theory (Donders-Helmholtz) states that myopia has heredity as the basic "cause" of nearsightedness. 2. The alternative concept (Helmholtz-dynamic) sees myopia as an acquired error (negative focal status) due to "environmental" causes—actually due to incorrect (bad) use of the eyes. This means wrong or bad use of the eyes in conditions and circumstances that establish a physiologic adaptation, thereby generating negative refractive errors like myopia. The most convincing logic is the latter opinion (dynamic eye) that myopia is an acquired defect."

"The world, at its most basic, existed as a complex web of interdependent relationships, forever indivisible. Perhaps the most essential ingredient of this interconnected universe was the living consciousness that observed it. In classical physics, the experimenter was considered a separate entity, a silent observer behind glass, attempting to understand a universe that carried on, whether he or she was observing it or not."

"It was true that parts of the brain performed specific functions, but the actual processing of the information seemed to be carried out by something more basic than particular neurons - certainly something that was not particular to any group of cells. For instance, storage appeared to be distributed throughout a specific location and sometimes beyond. But through what mechanisrn was this possible? Like Lashley, much of Pribram's early work on higher perception appeared to contradict the received wisdom of the day. The accepted view of vision ?for the most part still accepted today ?"

"By the time I see most of my patients," he explains, "they have had everything else tried unsuccessfully on them and a large percentage of them have this syndrome as their basic cause. If the patient is willing to follow directions, within a few weeks they already see enough improvement so that they know they are doing the right thing. Within a few months, they've usually improved enough so that they can handle it from there on their own."
