"Perhaps our best hope lies in teaching our new cells. At one time scientists thought that your brain cells were different, that they didn't change. Perhaps they even orchestrated the cycle of cell death and rebirth elsewhere in your body. Not so. Even key brain cells wither away and are reborn. Every part of you can change, and your brain is no exception.3 More fascinating still is the discovery that the pace of cell renewal doesn't simply follow some predetermined script. It varies depending on what you do and how you feel."

"Our genes, our DNA are programs and our cells react not only from within but also from without. cells respond to the environment they exist in. That environment not only consists of our fundamental biology but is also the expression of the way we live translated into biomatter. Our cells respond not only to biological programs but also to the program that runs our minds. That program is what we believe. Our perception of what is happening to us and around us influences the behavior of our cells. It's not always true that what is happening in our body is because we are victims of our genes."

"Prescribing a drug that exhibits control over every one of our fifty trillion cells should only be done after deep consideration of what the underlying symptoms mean. In chronic cases where symptoms are persisting, there should literally be much soul searching first. So a knowledge of our own chakras empowers us to interpret these important messages, and make the changes needed to get our lives back on track. These messages inform us where are bodies and our lives are out of balance - where there is either too much control or too much submission."

"Do these structures, like trillions of minute antennas, communicate instantly and coherently with each other, and with our DNA, to regulate the growth and regeneration of our cells with the ever-present input of the cosmos as a whole? Do they play a major role in converting the weird quantum world of probabilities and boundless fields, into the familiar physical world we can see, smell, taste, hear and touch? And doesn't this suggest that our bodies are tangible representations of a vast fundamental consciousness shared by all life forms?"

"And as in our own cells, microtubules form spindles that pull the plant's chromosomes apart when the cell is dividing. Several modern drugs such as taxol that are used to slow cancer growth in humans, are naturally occurring plant molecules that bind with microtubules to prevent a cell from dividing. It is the fundamental similarities between plants and ourselves that make this medical advance possible. Plants as Antennas Tangible proof of a remarkable non-local connection between humans and plants was uncovered by the lie-detector expert Cleve Backster in 1966."

"Considering these differences, scientists have suggested that you replace about i percent of your cells each day.1 That's i percent today, another i percent tomorrow, amounting to roughly 30 percent by next month, and 100 percent by next season. Seeing yourself and your cells in this way, every three months you get a whole new you. Perhaps it's no coincidence that it takes around three months to learn a new habit or make a lifestyle change.2 Perhaps we can't teach an old cell new tricks. Perhaps our best hope lies in teaching our new cells."

"Your muscle cells live about three months. Even your bones are made anew time and again. Considering these differences, scientists have suggested that you replace about i percent of your cells each day.1 That's i percent today, another i percent tomorrow, amounting to roughly 30 percent by next month, and 100 percent by next season. Seeing yourself and your cells in this way, every three months you get a whole new you. Perhaps it's no coincidence that it takes around three months to learn a new habit or make a lifestyle change.2 Perhaps we can't teach an old cell new tricks."

"Scientists are now beginning to understand just how and why our physical body of cells, our hardware, is in constant communication with this mysterious, ubiquitous, 'virtual' energy of space. But surely space, we have been led to believe, consists of simply nothing - zilch - the empty area into which everything else fits? Not so, according to quantum physicist, and one-time colleague of Albert Einstein, John Wheeler."

"According to studies, maitake fractions have the ability to both directly enhance the damaging activity of NK cells against cancer cells and to change NK precursor cells into activated NK cells. Immune Properties of Maitake Dr. Nanba and other researchers have identified several mechanisms through which maitake beta-glucans provide immune support. Several Japanese studies have been published regarding the immuno-modulating effects of maitake."

"Fuel cells have been around a long time. Sir William Robert Grove demonstrated the process in 1839. In the late 1950s, NASA began to build a compact fuel cell electricity generator for use on space missions. Cost was not a constraint. The fuel cells and hydrogen to run them weighed much less than batteries, an important consideration when firing loads into space on rockets. Later, in manned spacecraft, the astronauts could also drink the water that the fuel cells produced. There is no question that fuel cells exist and that they work."

"Remarkably, when they were asked to decrease the levels of those same white blood cells through imagery, the lab measurement showed fewer cells than their baseline scores. Imagery has provided excellent results in other clinical settings as well. One trained-imagery program resulted in half of its asthma participants decreasing or discontinuing their medications. Another improved mood and lowered pain in fibromyalgia, and still another reduced pain in sufferers of juvenile rheumatoid arthritis. Envisioning also helps us with our medications."

"The two-way movement forms vast convection cells that make the wind blow. Our planet spins as it travels around the sun. The earth's rotation pushes the air in the convection cells sidewards as they are dragged by friction from the land and sea or squeezed by gravity. The Coriolis Force, named after the French mathematician Gustave Gaspard Coriolis (1792-1843), results from the earth's rotation. In the Northern Hemisphere, the path of an object appears deflected to the right, in the Southern to the left, a matter of some concern to people launching artillery shells or rockets."

"If you love flowers, you might picture a beautiful garden where healthy cells bloom like roses, and cancer cells dry up and die. Now that you have your image, there are many methods of imagery practice. You may want to capture the image on paper to remind you, or have music that is complementary to your vision. Some people have even recorded themselves or someone else reading a vision script to them. Other people use senses of smell, touch, or hearing to evoke a sense image. Find ten to fifteen minutes when you won't be disturbed. Close your eyes."

"Reds and purples—blueberries, cherries, apple skin, blood oranges and pomegranates—are indicators of anthocyanins, a flavanoid shown in a 2007 study to destroy cancerous cells without affecting healthy human cells. Orange fruits—papayas, mangoes and peaches—contain carotenoids that protect against heart disease and muscular degeneration. Yellow and green fruits—avocados, green grapes and peas—signal the presence of lutein and zeaxanthin, vital to human eyes."

"Nerve cells release neurotransmitters to send signals to neighboring cells. The anticholinergic medicines block some of these signals. Many drugs, including some used to treat allergies, anxiety, blood pressure, convulsions, depression, Parkinson's disease, and psychosis, have been found to have anticholinergic effects. So many medicines have anticholinergic effects that some people may be taking two or more of these drugs at the same time. Scientists have found what they believe is physical evidence of harm from these anticholinergic drugs in the brain."

"You compromise your immune system to the point that it can no longer handle all of the cancerous cells your body produces—thus allowing some of them to take root and establish themselves. 3. Circulation (in the broadest sense) is impeded—thus leading to both 1 and 2 above. Let's explore these three points in a little more detail. 1. Exposure to Toxins and Other Outside Influences Some factors are known beyond a shadow of doubt; others are more hypothetical (but with strong circumstantial support). • Exposure to radiation is an absolute known cause of cancer."

"In addition, the sulfur-rich proteins present in the seeds work hand in hand with the Omega-3 oils to literally reverse mutated cells and cancer in the body. • For many people, a good probiotic formula alone will serve to wake up their colon and get it working again. Most people, however will need a stimulating herbal colon-activator formula that provides both cleansing and healing to the entire gastrointestinal system (at least until their colons rebuild)."

"The only question is: can your body deal with those cells and prevent them from taking root and multiplying? That's it, pure and simple. Any program that reinforces your body in that agenda is good and will improve your odds dramatically. Any program that undermines it is "questionable." And that, dear readers, is why chemotherapy and radiation (at least in their current forms) will someday be considered a barbaric remnant of our medical past, like doctors not washing their hands before surgery and using mercury to treat syphilis."

"Regenerate the damaged and destroyed cells of the liver. Next to the skin, the liver is the largest organ in the body. In many ways, it is the most important organ in the body, and the last to be considered when it comes to health. In addition to being large, the liver is also a complicated organ involved in at least 200 separate functions. Generally speaking, the liver performs a vital role in regulating, synthesizing, storing, secreting, transforming, and breaking down many different substances in the body."

"First, we consume many more calories per unit of food; the fiber that's been removed from these foods is precisely what would have made us feel full and stop *Fructose is metabolized differently from glucose; the body doesn't respond to it by producing insulin to convey it into cells to be used as energy. Rather, it is metabolized in the liver, which turns it first into glucose and then, if there is no call for glucose, into triglycerides—fat. eating."
- Michael Pollan, In Defense of Food: An Eater's Manifesto (Get the book.)

"Fats make up the structure of our cell walls, the ratios between the various kinds influencing the permeability of the cells to everything from glucose and hormones to microbes and toxins. Without adequate amounts of fat in the diet, fat-soluble vitamins like A and E can't pass through the intestinal walls. All this was known in 1977. But the Hippocratic oath—"First do no harm"—evidently does not apply to official dietary advice, which at least in 1977 followed a very different principle: "Why not?"

"Studying cultured human cells, he's found that "deficiency of vitamins C, E, B12, B6, niacin, folic acid, iron or zinc appears to mimic radiation by causing single- and double-strand DNA breaks, oxidative lesions, or both"—precursors to cancer. "This has serious implications, as half of the U.S. population may be deficient in at least one of these micronutrients." Most of the missing micronutrients are supplied by fruits and vegetables, of which only 20 percent of American children and 32 percent of adults eat the recommended five daily servings."

"Insulin is an essential hormone that enables the body to absorb the breakdown products of carbohydrates and carry these substances as glucose—another name for blood sugar—into the cells to generate energy. Excessive quantities of carbohydrates, a result of high-carb, low-fat diets, requires more insulin to process the carbohydrates. 172 Too much insulin signals the body to store the overload of carbohydrates as fat. The more carbs you eat and the less active you are, the more the carbs turn into fat. That means more weight."

"When the body is under stress, the cells in the abdomen are the most aggressive in responding to increased Cortisol levels. The result is a biochemically driven accumulation of extra abdominal flab. Six months after her first consultation, Shirley returned and said the following: When I first came to you complaining that my gut had become a fat magnet, you recommended that I start a regimen that would include bio-identical progesterone cream, foods and supplements to support hormone balance, and a practice of consciously relaxing three times a day."

"In healthy men and in healthy premenopausal women, bone mineral density remains relatively static. Bone cells survive for about six years. Following menopause and hormonal changes, however, a woman's bone mineral density falls. A net demineralization of bone takes place. Bone cell turnover markedly increases, creating a situation where the soft tissues of the body, such as arterial walls and kidneys, can become contaminated with lead stored for decades in bones. No wonder the blood pressure of many women soars during menopause."

"Then once again, I have this incredible surge of sound energy within me—like an inner explosion that makes all my cells feel altered and tingle. For a moment, I worry that I am waking up my wife and wonder if my body is flopping around in bed. I wake up tingling and a bit shocked by this sound explosion, since it came unexpectedly. Nearly five weeks later, the phone rings and my wife answers. She calls out, "Robert, it's DJ." I instantly recall the lucid dream and take the phone. I say "Hello" and DJ responds with "Robert, you are finally there!"

"When a bad microbe or substance (antiges) interacts with the intestinal lining, the immune cells produce antibodies (e.g., Immunoglobulin A[IgA]). The ability of the immune tissues to communicate allows an immune response initiated in the GALT to affect other immune tissues, such as the lungs. In other words, a response to an antigen (e.g., peanuts) in the digestive tract could cause an effect in the lungs such as shortness of breath and tightening of the throat, as seen in anaphylactic shock."

"The goal is to stimulate optimum healing and function in all of your body's cells, and the result is a profound, total-body experience. Now that you have evicted many of the toxic elements in your environment to Reduce your exposure, it's time to address the toxins that have been accumulating in you for years. The E is about eliminating your present body burden. Remember, removing the external toxins to which you regularly expose yourself is just the first step in the RENEW process. The other half of the detox equation entails removing internal toxins that are already stored in your body."

"Fosamax, the best-selling antiosteoporosis drug on the market, works by attaching to bone cells and preventing calcium loss, and doctors prescribe it to younger women with osteopenia in the hopes of preventing fractures down the road. But there's not a single study to show that starting early makes any difference. In fact, one study of Fosamax found that women with osteopenia who took it suffered more fractures, not fewer. (The following chapter will discuss why doctors continue prescribing drugs even when the data say they probably shouldn't."

"The pathologist couldn't tell whether the cells were benign or malignant. As for the lesions on his lungs, after a PET scan came out negative, which suggested they were probably not cancer, Casarella was left with two options: He could wait to see whether they grew bigger, or he could have them biopsied. Unfortunately, if the spots turned out to be malignant, surgery would not offer a cure, since the lesions were too large and too numerous."
