"Graham, testified that other drugs still on the mar- ket were unsafe, including Accutane and Arava (for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis) that cause "an unacceptably high risk of acute liver failure and death;"148 Crestor (a cholesterol lowering drug) that causes myopathy and rhabdomyalysis; Meridia (a weight loss drug) that causes heart arrhythmias; and Serevent (an asthma drug) that causes a three-fold increase in the risk of death from asthma."

"A causes an effect in B, B then causes an effect in A, A then causes an effect in B, and the process of mutual causality occurs in a circular fashion. Let's be clear here. Positive feedback processes are so well documented, so well appreciated, that scientists often take them for granted. Reductionist (Stage M) scientists do not like circular logic but recursive feedback requires circular thinking and circular mathematics. Hence the systems shift to Stages I, L, and E."
- Gary E. Schwartz and Linda G. S. Russek, The Living Energy Universe (Get the book.)

"We also described the process as being a process of "circular causality." A causes an effect in B, B then causes an effect in A, A then causes an effect in B, and the process of mutual causality occurs in a circular fashion. Let's be clear here. Positive feedback processes are so well documented, so well appreciated, that scientists often take them for granted. Reductionist (Stage M) scientists do not like circular logic but recursive feedback requires circular thinking and circular mathematics. Hence the systems shift to Stages I, L, and E."

"While there are certainly causes and effects that may lead to the events of every day, they seem to originate from a time and a place that appear completely disconnected with the moment. Neville shares the crux of the greatest mystery regarding our relationship to the world around us: "Man's chief delusion is his conviction that there are causes other than his own state of consciousness."3 Just what does this mean? It's the practical question that naturally arises when we talk about living in a participatory universe."

"A causes an effect in B, B then causes an effect in A, A then causes an effect in B, and the process of mutual causality occurs in a circular fashion. Let's be clear here. Positive feedback processes are so well documented, so well appreciated, that scientists often take them for granted.

"Another common link is that protease can act on many of the elements that are suspected causes of the immune system attacking the body. For instance, heavy metals, such as lead and mercury, exert their poisoning effect by binding to groups of proteins, including vital enzymes. Once they bind to a functional enzyme, they denature it, inhibit it, or both. This interaction of heavy metals with proteins can lead to degenerating diseases, nerve damage, or even death."

"It does not treat the basic causes of disease, the reasons why health begins to degenerate in the first place. The "chasing the disease" approach simply doesn't work in the long run because it can't! If you don't address the cause of a problem, it will just surface again later. It may arise in a different form, or it may come back in the same form but be much more serious. When natural laws of caring for the body are ignored, aging and deterioration take place in a manner that, sooner or later, results in serious loss of quality of life."
- Ron Garner, Conscious Health: A Complete Guide to Wellness Through Natural Means (Get the book.)

"Although enzymes may not be able to combat the effects of a genetic predisposition to lose one's hair, they can be used to support the various systems of the body that may be involved with specific causes of hair loss. People who are generally healthy tend to experience less hair loss than people with a variety of health problems. Therefore, using enzymes to support digestion, the absorption of nutrients, the functioning of the immune system, the elimination of free radicals, and balanced pH levels throughout the body can help with this problem."

"It could be sound (phonons), photons, or any number of other things or causes. All fields in one way or another are shaped by a force. Gravity alters the orbit of planets. Einstein's space-time warps under the influence of the mass of objects. The rush of air through our vocal cords vibrates air molecules and carves bursts of air into distinct words. When a metal plate across which sand has been spread is subjected to sound waves, the sand rearranges itself from a shapeless mass into intticate geometric patterns (refer to figure 8.2 on page 157)."

"Extensive research studies indicate that the causes of Alzheimer's disease can include genetic factors, age, environmental factors, chronic exposure to aluminum and/or silicon, and increased oxidative damage due to long-term toxic exposure. Recommendations include a healthy, well-balanced diet and lifestyle; avoidance of products that contain mercury and aluminum (which include antiperspirants, antacids, baking powder, and aluminum cookware); and increasing antioxidant levels in the body."

"The spots tend to fade or disappear, however, when the liver and blood are cleansed or when the body's ability to remove free radicals is improved through improved immune function and enzyme production. causes of this condition include excessive sun exposure, compromised liver function, the ingestion of rancid oils, a relatively poor diet, and lack of exercise. Recommendations include liver detoxification, the addition of enzymes to a well-balanced diet, and supplemental nutritional products to improve one's overall digestion and absorption of nutrients."

"Traditional thinking holds that the Western high-fat diet causes fat to stick to our arteries. Maybe so, but why doesn't this fat stick to all of our arteries? Why just the ones in which blockage is lethal or at least incapacitating? Why are these distinctions important? We physicians currently like the public to think that if your coronary arteries have crud in them, there's a strong likelihood that arteries in your brain, legs, and every other part of your body do as well. Logical, yes; accurate, no."

"Our encounter started a personal quest that up-ended most of my preconceived notions about the underlying causes of heart disease, diabetes, cancer, arthritis, obesity ... and you name it. I dug up my college thesis to try my own diet based on principles of human evolution. Using sophisticated bioassays of my blood from a renowned laboratory, I experimented with foods, supplements, and exercise. The results were amazing. I lost 50 pounds over the first year; I've since lost another 25, but more important, I restored my body's normal cellular functioning."

"Using up this limited supply of glycogen is what causes marathon runners to "bonk" at mile 20.) Each molecule of glycogen in these tissues is bonded to a water molecule, so as the glycogen is liberated, the water rushes into your bloodstream and passes through your kidneys. Bingo! Now you know why you get a sudden "miracle" weight loss when you start most diets. Believe it or not, you've stored this water because in ancient Africa, winter was a dry season; you're designed to store fat and water when your genes perceive winter is coming."

"Many cardiac disease specialists think a dietary deficiency of magnesium causes or contributes to hypertension. Magnesium is poorly absorbed and competes with the same receptors in the intestines that absorb calcium. When magnesium and calcium are combined in a supplement, you'll actually get less of each. Work your way up to as high a magnesium dose as you can tolerate without having loose bowels (but no more than 1,000 mg a day). After all, the laxative isn't named Milk of Magnesia for nothing!"

"In other words, bioenergetics looks for the web of interconnected root causes, whereas allopathic medicine, for the most part, looks at observable symptoms. Both approaches serve their purpose, but they are fundamentally different approaches to healing. In some respects, NES goes even farther than most other complementary healing approaches and extends our previous understanding of bioenergetics, because Peter's research has identified a structure to the body-field. That structure affects how information moves between the body-field and physical body."
- Peter h. Fraser and Harry Massey, Decoding the Human Body-Field: The New Science of Information as Medicine (Get the book.)

"BRONCHITIS Bronchitis is an inflammation of the bronchi or bronchioles, in which excess mucus is produced. This causes a cough and breathing difficulties. The bronchitis can be the result of an infection such as a cold or flu, or irritation by foreign substances, particularly tobacco smoke and air pollution. The condition can be acute—of fairly short duration—or chronic, when it can lead to emphysema."
- Dr Ron Roberts, Asthma Controlled Naturally: Techniques That Work (Get the book.)

"Practitioners of allopathic medicine admit that the causes of arthritis are unknown and speculate that it may have a hereditary genetic factor or be the result of an injury or disease processes that eventually cause the cartilage in joints to deteriorate. They identify aging as a major factor because the joints wear over time, especially in people who are obese. However, NES has gleaned clues from our own testing procedures that arthritis may occur as a bioenergetic consequence of compromised carbohydrate metabolism."

"There is evidence that a vegetarian diet causes an increased calorie burn after meals, meaning plant-based foods are being used more efficiently as fuel for the body, as opposed to being stored as fat," notes one of the reviewers, Neal Barnard, MD, of the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, a nonprofit organization based in Washington, DC. The reviewers also reported that vegetarians experienced increased insulin sensitivity, meaning their cells absorbed nutrients more easily. Part-time vegetarians reap health benefits."

"Such food, when broken down by our bodies and processed for energy, lacks the correct configurations our cells require for energy and tissue construction. This causes two things to happen. First, this unnatural energy must be eliminated from the body because it is toxic, and, if that is not possible, it must be stored in the tissues. Second, the body must rob the required vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and enzymes from its own tissues—cannibalizing itself—to manufacture energy for its cellular requirements."
- Ron Garner, Conscious Health: A Complete Guide to Wellness Through Natural Means (Get the book.)

"We can let garbage accumulate in our kitchen for only so long before it causes a problem in our living environment. It is the same with our bodies. When we learn to have mainly fresh squeezed juice or fruit for breakfast, and/or maybe a piece of fruit mid-morning, as well as not eating anything more after dinner at the end of the day, we cooperate with the body's 24-hour cycle. Reducing the amount of food we eat, and the number of times we eat it, increases the efficiency and health of the body. WHAT ARE THE BODY'S PRIORITIES?"

"As reported in USA Today on December 7, 2004 (Kevin McCoy, "Drug Maker Rebuffed Call to Monitor Users"), however, as of 2004 the company's spokespersons still publicly denied that there was a "causal relationship" between Accutane and depression, meaning that depression spontaneously developed, unrelated to Accutane, but secondary to other causes. French regulatory authorities required that Roche place a warning about suicide on the label in 1997; however, the FDA did not even learn about this for another year, when it required the company to put a similar label on Accutane sold in the U.S."

"Medications for Low-Back Pain Low-back pain is a disabling condition that affects a large number of people in the U.S. causes of low-back pain can include but are not limited to dislocation of the vertebral discs. The so-called muscle-relaxing drugs used in the treatment of low-back pain, which include carisoprodol (Soma), chlorzoxazone (Parafon), cyclobenzaprine (Flexeril), methocarbamol (Ro-baxin), and orphenadrine (Norflex), can cause drowsiness, dizziness, loss of appetite, vomiting, and diarrhea."

"Mould spores are being increasingly suspected as causes of asthma because, like pollen, they can be released into the air in huge numbers. You don't have to live in a damp suburb to have mould in your home, either: moulds can survive in a variety of places. Badly ventilated cupboards, bathroom corners, kitchen bins or even drawers and wardrobes can harbour them. Never put clothes away damp and don't have overwatered houseplants to brighten up your rooms. Many bathroom cleaners now contain ingredients that kill moulds."
- Dr Ron Roberts, Asthma Controlled Naturally: Techniques That Work (Get the book.)

"Asthmatics will know that not all plant species release pollen that causes problems. Plants that are wind-pollinated generally produce a huge amount of tiny pollen grains, while insect-pollinated plants release much fewer, larger grains that do not float in the air in the same way. It is the former that trigger asthma. Pollen-related asthma is often seasonal, coinciding with flowering time. If you live in the country there is not a lot you can do to minimise your exposure to pollens at certain times of the year, but you can reduce the pollens in a suburban garden."

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

"Ultimately, NES scans over time determine the body-field's correlations to the root causes of physical and emotional problems by working through the many layers of the holographic body-field to reveal the preferred sequence for healing. We do not address symptoms, which is what most allopathic diagnoses are based on. That's why we say we do not diagnose, treat, prevent, or cure disease. We are working at the holistic, systems level of your body-field and working with energy and information, not physical tissue or cellular processes directly."

"The expression of DNA methyltransferases has a different importance, based on the differentiation stage of the cell: Deletion of Dnmtl in postmitotic neurons does not affect overall levels of DNA methylation, whereas the same deletion in neural progenitors markedly decreases methylation levels and causes severe defects in neurogenesis [97]. Astrocyte differentiation is also dependent on the methylation status of glial fibrillary acidic protein (Gfap) promoter at the binding site of STAT3 transcription factor."

"Journal Entry, March 2006 Heart disease is the single leading cause of death in the United States, claiming more lives than the combined next four causes of mortality. Fifty-eight percent of all deaths are directly or indirectly related to cardiovascular disease, as 2,500 people die of heart disease each day or one every thirty-five seconds. Health care related to heart disease costs Americans 403 billion dollars a year with one in every three persons having some form of cardiovascular disease, according to the American Heart Association's 2006 statistics."
