"Following the exercise plan described in Chapter 10 will add just the right amount of stress to your system. Again, exercise prolongs your life because it is stressful, not because it is beneficial in itself. I know it sounds crazy, but now you know the real reason exercise is "good" for you is that it's "bad" for you. TAKING A BREAK If you use some or all of the tools I've described in this chapter to induce hormesis, you'll arrive at a very interesting place."

"The different effects of HDL and LDL cholesterol were described in 1977. (Cholesterol is a waxy fat that is attached to a protein for transport in the blood. The difference between "good" cholesterol, HDL, and "bad" cholesterol, LDL, is the protein to which the cholesterol is attached.) Coronary heart disease develops when one or more of the arteries that supply blood to the heart muscle become blocked, depriving the muscle cells of the oxygen and nutrients needed to function properly."

"The language is startling in its similarity to mine in the 2003 paper that I distributed to the FDA committee in which I described a stimulant syndrome that begins with "insomnia, nervousness, anxiety, hyperactivity, and irritability, and then progresses toward more severe agitation, aggression, and varying degrees of mania." I also went on to describe the hazards of akathisia. The underlying concept of activation is identical to what I call stimulation and the FDA's words often overlap with mine."

"However, the attorney described the settlement as "significant" and "generally satisfactory" to the parents. I was gratified when he attributed the settlement to my presence in the case. The parents remain dismayed that so many professionals were involved in treating Andy and yet not one of them considered that the drugs might be making him worse. Andy's mother puts it simply, "I will never understand how or why it happened." Yet it's a pattern repeated in almost every case of medication madness."

"Curcumin has been described as an anti-inflammatory that is half as strong as cortisone—a steroid that is one of modern medicine's most powerful anti-inflammatories. In research at Columbia University, researchers found that curcumin modulates proteins that suppress apoptosis and interferes with growth factors and angiogenesis, both of which promote cancer progression. Ginger, a relative of turmeric, is a pungent herb with documented pain-killing, anti-inflammatory effects."

"To combat this imbalance, I suggested you consider buying Freeze-Framer, the biofeedback software I described in chapter 9. That computer program shows just how well your parasympathetic nerves to the heart are working and allows you to practice improving your parasympathetic tone. Kundalini yoga probably does much the same thing because of its attention to breathing. Abnormalities in autonomic balance in favor of the sympathetic branch may explain why some CFS patients have a heart rate problem. Remember that when the sympathetic nerves fire, your heart rate goes up."

"When I turn to prescription medicines for fatigue, the first I try is modafinil (Provigil). I described this drug in my discussion of sleep in the last chapter, because it is FDA-approved for the excessive sleepiness associated with chronic pathological conditions. These include narcolepsy, sleep apnea, and moderate to severe cases of a condition known as chronic shift work sleep disorder, which gets its name from the severe sleepiness some night shift workers feel."

"As you now know, each of the five panels I've described here is very specific. If they are positive, they are important; if they are negative, the questions of diagnosis and cause of illness remain unanswered. So when all of the usual tests show that everything is normal, and my patient still has fatigue or pain, I then order tests for some less common disorders that can produce these two conditions."

"Keeping Up with Clinical Trials The status of the NIH-approved clinical trial I just described can be followed at a government Web site, www.clinicaltrials.gov. This site plus another one, www.centerwatch.com, track ongoing clinical trials that are initiated by researchers like me. Of the dozens of trials listed, one is for a drug in the same class as Cymbalta but with no proven antidepressant effect. Treatment with this drug, milnacipran, reduced pain and other FM symptoms. The company manufacturing the drug should be moving toward obtaining FDA approval to bring it to market soon."

"These details are important because Berlex is a wholly owned subsidiary of Schering AG, described as its "U.S. business unit." Dr. Katz told the Los Angeles Times that he had been "unaware of any relationship between Berlex and Schering AG," and therefore unaware of a potential conflict of interest. But, according to the Los Angeles Times, "Katz declined to identify when he learned that Berlex was the U.S. affiliate of Schering AG." Drs. Eastman and Katz were certainly not the only high-ranking officials at the NIH to receive consulting fees from the drug industry."

"The effect of probiotics can be enhanced when taken with prebiotics, a combination described as a symbiotic. Probiotics to the Rescue chapter 6 From Diarrhea to Constipation: Probiotics and the Toilet A Microscopic View of This Chapter Diarrhea can be acute or chronic. Acute diarrhea is caused by an infection of bad microbes. Probiotics prevent the ability of bad microbes to infect the intestinal tract. Certain probiotics reduce the severity and duration of diarrhea. By improving immunity in the intestinal tract, probiotics can prevent diarrhea."

"But when I read the NEJM article carefully I noticed that, as with the Pravachol and stroke study described in the last chapter, the people included in the VIGOR study were very different from the vast majority of people for whom doctors prescribe NSAIDs. More than half of the people in VIGOR were taking steroids, such as prednisone, in addition to an NSAID for their arthritis. Only a small percentage of the people for whom Vioxx is prescribed in the general population, however, take steroids at the same time."

"This was shown by a famous case described by the Brazilian investigator Oscar d'Argonnel. He had been receiving voice messages on the telephone and went to some trouble to ascertain that they were of paranormal origin. In January 1919 he was visiting Abelardo, a psychic, who was having lunch. D'Argonnel wanted to call his friend Figner on the telephone and did so in the room next to where Abelardo was having his meal. While d'Argonnel was talking to Figner on the phone, strange noises began to come through, and the voice of Father Manoel, who had died some years before then, came on the line."

"Mediums such as James Van Praagh, John Edward, and George Anderson have mediated contact with thousands of deceased people and described the information they received from them; Raymond Moody collected a wide variety of "visionary encounters with departed loved ones." The possibility of authentic telepathic transcommunication, the same as authentic instrumental transcommunication, must be definitely admitted. WHAT PREVENTS ITC'S RECOGNITION? ITC's human, spiritual, and scientific implications are staggering. If it is authentic, why do we not hear more about it?"

"In the twentieth century Akasha was brilliantly described by Swami Vivekananda. According to Vivekananda, Akasha is omnipresent and all-penetrating in the universe. Everything evolved out of Akasha. It is Akasha that became the human body, the animal body, the plants, every form that we see, everything that exists. At the beginning of the universe there was only Akasha, and at its end there will be only Akasha again: the solids, the liquids, and the gases all melt back into it."

"The evolution of human groups in intercommunicating kinship or social structure-based communities is described in the chronicles of history. This is a complex process, for human beings are not simply the passive subjects of evolution but are active (even if usually not voluntary and conscious) agents that influence its unfolding. Nevertheless, even if they do not will it, or even know it, the societies formed by human beings undergo an evolutionary process that is analogous to that which occurs in biological nature."

"Again, even if medication is needed, the nutritional changes, exercise, improved sleep habits, and limit-setting described in this book will make the dose of medication smaller and the side effects minimal. The diagnosis of ADD/ADHD puts the entire family through long periods and great amounts of unneeded stress, and the failure of treatments based on prescription drugs affects not only the child, who thinks he or she has failed, but also parents, caregivers, and siblings."

"We sat down together at first for a session without Malcolm present, and Stella described for me her situation in detail. When she finished I was able to point out to her a pattern that changed her perspective of how Malcolm viewed the world and his place in it. Malcolm's case of ADD/ADHD was real and pressing, and his temper, tantrums, and outbursts were certainly not his fault—nor were they Stella's. What was happening to Malcolm was something that involved everyone in his life—from his teachers to his classmates to his relatives."

"The reduced calorie intake will burn fat and encourage weight loss while the increased nutrient density diet will promote health and, as we've seen with the SuperFoods described above, contribute to the biochemistry of weight loss. The four SuperFoods—blueberries, broccoli, spinach, and tomatoes—all make major contributions to this dual goal. Even though most people, and certainly most dieters, are familiar with the basic concept of calories and the need to reduce them in order to lose weight, many of us take in far more calories than we realize."

"Their hair looked better, their nails were getting better and, most of all, they loved how great their skin looked. They described it time and again as a certain "glow." Yes, their clothes were looser—some had lost up to an inch in their waist measurement in a week—they loved the food (many were surprised they didn't experience any problems with hunger), and they felt calmer and more energetic. But what seemed to thrill them the most was the look of their skin and hair. Frankly, we thought this was the power of positive thinking."

Even 70 percent is an overstatement, though, because Americans' health is inferior to the health of the citizens of the other OECD countries. Fletcher received her treatment."

"The torrent of money flowing into the neuro world can only be described in a series of superlatives. Columbia recently announced plans for the Jerome L. Greene Science Center, a neuroscience research center, made possible with a $200 million bequest, which was the largest private gift received by any American university for the creation of a single facility. In 2000, MIT received a commitment of $350 million for the McGovern Institute for Brain Research, one of the largest gifts ever given to a university."

"In a recent editorial for Nutrition Action Health Letter, a publication of the Center for Science in the Public Interest, Michael Jacobsen named the major officeholders in the USDA and described what each had done for a living before going to work for the Department of Agriculture.4 Every single one had previously been employed by the dairy, meat, or poultry industry. And as recently as October 2000, the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine successfully litigated to find out exactly who was compensating the members of the USDA's U.S. Dietary Guidelines Committee."

"I have already described some of them in more detail, but this in no way diminishes the value of others. These include: • Ayurveda's Pancha Karma treatment and herbal remedies • Yoga • Hydrazine Sulfate • Antineoplaston Therapy • Acupuncture • Bioelectric Therapy • Bioresonance Therapy • Royal Rife Machine Therapy • Gerson Therapy • Hoxsey Therapy • Therapies using Iscador (Mistletoe), Pau D'Arco, Chaparral."

"While I bring the above-listed alternative, natural approaches to your attention, I also wish to recommend that you don't lose sight of the true nature, origins, and progressive stages of cancer and general illness, as described in this and my other books, The Amazing Liver and Gallbladder Flush and Timeless Secrets of Health and Rejuvenation. It is easy to become so overwhelmed by the physical appearance and reality of a cancerous tumor that you may This is the average 5-year survival rate for all medically treated cancers.

"Timeless Secrets of Health and Rejuvenation sheds light on all major issues of health care and reveals that most medical treatments, including surgery, blood transfusions, and pharmaceutical drugs are avoidable when certain key functions in the body are restored through the natural methods described in the book."

"Lou is not closed-minded, or set in her ways as so many seniors are often described. She remains curious about the world around her: about people, about new technology like her new iPod, and about the nightly news. "I love surprises!" says Lou, giving voice to the sense of joy and wonder that animates so much of what she does. "Change excites me, because I need a little variety, now and again. Mind you, I like things my way, but I'm not a creature of habit," she says, admitting to having her share of that's-the-way-things-ought-to-be thoughts."

"Here's how: BUILDING YOUR BLISS LIST Your Bliss List is best described as a summary of your love-to-do's, rather than your have-to-do's. If you want an easy way to bring your passions to the forefront, take a few deep breaths and clear your mind. Don't think about your job or responsibilities at home. Set a timer for five minutes and begin to speed-write. This means to write as fast as you can without stopping. Focus on what thrilled you in the past, what activities you delight in now, and what would most excite you in the future."

"Kaitlyn loves the doll, holds it whenever she can, carries it with her, and indulges in the sensations and delights of what she described to us as "conjured motherhood." Three months later, at age twenty-five, Kaitlyn had her first period. As of this writing, her cycle has been absolutely regular for five years. Whether she has children or not is yet to be seen. But her tactile form of envisioning may well have had powerful effects on her body's hormonal production. This is only one woman's story. In no way does it suggest that physically conjuring motherhood will guarantee fertility."

"Though those stages are incompletely understood by modern medicine, the first is often described as a rush of good feeling that is likely created by an immediate, powerful dose of endorphins and adrenaline. The second stage is a sense of calm. This calm is a culmination of multiple alterations in brain states evoked by true, authentically delivered giving. Giving and its emotional siblings, compassion and empathy, all focus our attention on now."
