"Not surprisingly to advanced researchers and physicians, the association of mercury to chronic diseases is well documented in the scientific literature. The search for the association between mercury and cardiovascular disease, the number one killer in the industrialized world, revealed 358 scientific papers exemplifying the relationship. The search for the association between mercury and cancer, the number two killer in the industrialized world, revealed 643 scientific papers exemplifying the relationship. Both of these conditions represent 80% of all deaths in the industrialized world."

"Instead of pumping out more adrenaline, the adrenal glands respond to chronic stress by secreting more Cortisol. Because chronic stress is ongoing, high Cortisol levels do not subside until the stress is removed or the adrenal glands exhausted. Over time, elevated Cortisol levels can wreak havoc on your body."

"Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD) Reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD) is a nasty and chronic pain disorder affecting as many as 1.5 million Americans. It often begins with severe pain in one hand or foot. It is also referred to as complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS). It usually manifests as horribly severe pain in one hand or foot but can certainly spread immediately moves her hand or foot out of the way to be sure that it is not touched, I quickly inquire about symptoms suggesting RSD."

"Because there is no single drug for complex chronic illnesses, most medical doctors (MDs) have no idea how to deal with these conditions. But you can't hold the MDs fully responsible because medical school does not properly prepare them to deal with these issues. Most are only trained to deal with acute conditions. Gunshot wound? Remove the bullet, sew up the patient! Ruptured appendix? Cut open the patient, take out the organ, sew up the patient!"

"There is much debate about whether viruses cause chronic illness, or just take the opportunity to replicate when these conditions exist. I suspect that both camps are right to some degree. To test for numerous viruses, doctors will run a viral panel. These tests are relatively expensive, and I believe somewhat questionable. Only if the test shows an "active" infection to a virus is it very meaningful. Most people will show markers that they have been exposed to a virus and have mounted a measurable immune response to it. This usually means that the virus is "latent" within the body."

"I have come to believe there are several major reasons for my own chronic illness. First, I believe that the overuse of antibiotics for numerous repetitive infections in my childhood was for me, and is for most people, a very serious problem that most doctors totally underestimate. Broad-spectrum antibiotics can be lifesavers, but they should be used for just that. Antibiotics wipe out not only the bad bacteria, but also the good bacteria in our intestines. Our bodies absolutely require these good bacteria to stay healthy. I write more about this in Chapter 3, "Heal Your Gut."

"Fact 3: chronic love chemistry affirms and perpetuates life in our bodies. ?Fact 4: chronic fear chemistry denies life in our bodies. ?Fact 5: To internalize the belief that two forces with different agendas are battling is to invite the combat into our bodies and our lives. Question: Based on these facts, does it makes sense to remain engaged in an ongoing battle between light and dark by seeing one as a friend and the other as an enemy?"

"This is especially true when it comes to caring for patients with chronic diseases, like asthma, heart failure, and diabetes. But in this country, medicine is still practiced much as it was fifty years ago—a time of fewer specialists and less technology. We've never structured the delivery system to ensure that patients get all of the treatments and procedures they need and aren't subjected to care they don't. One doctor often doesn't know that another physician has already ordered a battery of tests, or that they have both prescribed two different drugs that do the same thing."

"These meds are typically given in very short courses for simple vaginal yeast infections, but require more prolonged use for chronic Candida overgrowth, with systemic symptoms. I also put Kyle on a yeast-free diet (see Chapter 17), along with probiotics and herbal antifungals (see Chapter 18). In addition to this anti-yeast nutritional therapy, I boosted Kyle's intake of vitamin A, which his tests had indicated was extremely low."

"Partly because of increased incidence of substance abuse, and partly because of chronic oppositional and impulsive behavior, adults and older adolescents with ADHD are more likely than others to commit antisocial acts. One study indicated that they are approximately twice as likely as others to be involved in property crime, domestic violence, and assault. They are also twice as likely as others to have their driver's licenses suspended. ADHD symptoms also make it much harder for people to make good livings."

"In my prior success with persistent, stubborn adult diseases, such as chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia, I'd found that only a comprehensive program worked. Would autism, exotic as it was, really prove to be that much different? At this time, conventional wisdom said that autism was essentially genetic, and would probably yield only to a dramatic genetic intervention, which was still on the horizon. I was too curious and too concerned, though, to settle for that piece of conventional wisdom. And Kyle, Elizabeth, and Eric were too desperate."

"A few years later, after their deer business was well established, the USDA claimed the animals had to be destroyed for fear they could be "susceptible" to chronic wasting disease. There were no symptoms, no positive tests, just the fact that the animals were imported. (And, oh yeah, China didn't have chronic wasting disease, only the United States did.) The couple attempted to fight the USDA, but the fight was too hard, lasted too long, and the USDA destroyed their animals, destroyed their business, and the stress from it all eventually destroyed their marriage. "

"Most of what I've learned from the research on myself and thousands of volunteers flies in the face of what health professionals have been taught about health, diet, and chronic disease. It confirms, though, that we are genetically programmed to eat a diet that helps quickly reproduce our genes but is actually killing us-the body that houses them. This deadly diet activates a host of killer genes designed to ensure that you don't stick around very long, and is also in large part the cause of the epidemic of obesity sweeping the nation and spreading viruslike to the rest of the world."

"In Part One, you'll learn how to: şIdentify the foods and behaviors that leave you open to disease and chronic health conditions, and how to eliminate or moderate them. şReintroduce the key foods, behaviors, and nutritional compounds that promote health and longevity. şTurn off those killer genes. Because 90 percent of the cells in your body are replaced every three months, the great news is that you can create a "new" you in as little as 90 days."

"Think about this: research has shown that skulls of primitive man, and even fossils of our early forbears, always had perfect dental arches and straight teeth; but when primitive cultures adopt the Western diet, within just one generation orthodontic problems appear along with the usual cast of chronic diseases.18 You've been told repeatedly that our usual way of eating is terrible for you, and is the cause of all your health and weight problems, yet you're hooked on it, right? You're in good company."

"The body initiates all acute diseases like colds, flu, fever, skin eruptions, diarrhea, scarlet fever, and measles, in attempts to reduce the accumulation of stored waste material. chronic diseases, such as diabetes, arthritis, bronchitis, heart disease, and cancer, are caused by the continued build-up of waste in the system, and the suppression of acute disease cleansing attempts by wrong treatment. 3 The body has the ability to return to health provided it is given the proper nutrition and conditions to do so. We don't "catch" diseases. We cause them! We create them by the way we live."

"Surgeons themselves reported that many of their patients remained in chronic pain even after multiple fusions. If they don't know which patients are most likely to benefit, or if it even works at all, why do surgeons continue performing fusions? Fusion surgery is one of the more lucrative procedures in medicine. According to the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, average hospital charges come to forty-two thousand dollars per case. The surgeon's reimbursement from Medicare is about four thousand dollars, and private insurers may pay more."

"Karriem Ali recently noted, You could say that all so-called chronic and incurable diseases are the ailments that Western medicine is not proficient at curing, otherwise they would be neither "chronic" nor "incur- able." Examples include autoimmune disorders, toxic accu- mulations (e.g. asbestos), arthritis, arthralgias (e.g. bursitis) and related chronic inflammatory disorders; chronic pain (e.g. low back pain, migraines, phantom limb pain, sciatica); birth defects and genetic disorders; neurological disorders (e.g. Alzheimer's, Parkinson's); and viral disorders (herpes, etc."

"Only one in five patients with chronic pulmonary disease was advised to quit smoking; one in ten alcoholics received counseling. While counseling smokers and drinkers may hardly seem like advanced medicine, it can persuade a certain percentage of patients to change their habits—and dramatically improve their health. The bottom line is this: Whether you are rushed to the hospital or you walk in the door, your chances of getting all the treatment that is recommended for any given condition are about the same as flipping a coin."

"There's reason to question this claim, yet we're nonetheless lucky to have many life-saving drugs: antivirals that have transformed HIV from a death sentence into a chronic infection, for instance; cyclosporine, which makes organ transplants possible; and insulin, which keeps diabetics alive. But the drugs that account for the meteoric rise in prescription rates are not for saving lives, for the most part."

"Although the actual symptoms vary from patient to patient, a CFS diagnosis usually results when a patient has suffered with several of the following symptoms and there is no other cause to account for them: unrelenting fatigue for at least six consecutive months, short-term memory problems, aching joints and muscles, tender lymph nodes, chronic sleeplessness, headaches, generally impaired thinking, and more. There are several hypotheses about what causes CFS."

"When they don't, illness, especially chronic illnesses, can result. The brain-based system is more skilled in getting messages where they need to go quickly rather than getting every detail of the message correct. Becker describes the perineural system as the perfect system to transmit this kind of precise information because it transfers information via very slow waves. He views the perineural system as an analog system, whereas the brain-based nervous system is a fast-pulse, digital system. Peter's research supports and confirms aspects of Becker's work."

"However, if information is distorted anywhere along that waveform, in any of the twelve Integrators, then the distorted information gets fed back into the start of the wave, at Energetic Integrator 1, and that distortion may become chronic. Over time, the distortions can so deform the information carried via the big body-wave that activities and processes in the physical body become affected, resulting in what we call the symptoms of disease."

"NES Case Overview: Heidi In 1998, Heidi had been diagnosed with Crohn disease, an inflammatory bowel disease, with the most persistent symptoms being loose stools and chronic diarrhea, with blood occasionally present in her stool. She was treated for years by her primary physician, who prescribed various drugs, most recently Asacol, but by 2006 she was still suffering symptoms, especially diarrhea. Although she continued to see her allopathic physician, she decided to also see a naturopathic physician who also is a NES practitioner."

"It progressively worsens to the point that it becomes chronic, or constant. The end result is degenerative disease and terminal illness. When you are tired and tense for more than three weeks in a row, something is wrong. In fact, when you are tired and tense for more than three days in a row, it takes its toll. After six weeks these symptoms are a warning sign of impending chronic fatigue and subsequent chronic metabolic burnout. The snowball cycle of TFS can be simplified thus: Oxidative Stress?Tension-Fatigue Syndrome? More Oxidative Stress?Chronic Burnout?"

"In the largest study ever done in which individual dietary factors could be isolated, there was a direct correlation between the amount of animal protein consumed and a shortened life span and increased prevalence of chronic diseases that would indicate killer-gene activation.2 So, dear body restorers, the animal protein that was an integral part of the wrecking crew in the Teardown phase is going to start turning on us if we don't do something different. IT'S COOL TO LOWER THE HEAT Why does eating lots of animal protein prove harmful over the long haul?"

"Diabetes is a chronic metabolic disorder that affects almost 21 million people in the United States, one to two million of whom suffer from its most severe form, called "Type 1" (also known as juvenile-onset and insulin-dependant diabetes mellitus). One out of every fourteen people in this country has some form of diabetes, which has become the sixth leading cause of death in the United States. Diabetes can lead to kidney failure, heart disease, blindness, strokes, and limb amputations, as well as high-risk pregnancies and babies born with birth defects."

"The new location can be any organ or gland or tissue, and the new colony will be the next focus of infection in a body plagued by recurrent or chronic infections. Understand, every single root canal leaks—without exception. Bacteria and/or toxins leach out from every root canal-treated tooth. Every single person who has had a root canal has had their immune system compromised by having to fight a continual low-grade infection that it can never fully eliminate, because it can never reach the source of that infection in the tooth itself."

"With 8 to 11 servings of fruits and vegetables a day and 6 to 12 servings of whole grains, the DASH diet can be a great ally in the battle against a number of chronic, diet-related diseases. The Five Elements of the DASH Diet In a nutshell, the DASH diet is a way of eating that is low in cholesterol, saturated fat, and total fat but rich in low-fat dairy foods, whole grains, fruits, and vegetables. Specifically, the DASH diet calls for the following daily nutrients. / 8 to 10 servings of fruits and vegetables."

"Most of the health benefits derived from food synergy are long-term, and they're powerful, helping to prevent major chronic diseases like cancer, heart disease, and stroke. With baby boomers hitting their fifties (I'm a member of this distinguished group), this new way of looking at things through the lens of food synergy seems perfectly timed. Of course, while the need to know more is strong and growing stronger, it's important to recognize that there's still a great deal to learn."
