"But the cells that were treated with IP^ experienced tremendous difficulty in proliferating, and as the researchers added more IPg to the cells, their growth became even more difficult. That meant that the potential for inhibition of growth was truly dependent on the amount of IPg to which they were exposed. At the highest dosage, IPg was so effective that the growth of the liver cancer cells was completely halted. The next test involved transplantation of human liver cancer cells via injection into a biological organism (in vivo). The results again were significant."

"When you've installed food as a preferred way to cope, you stop developing new ways to deal with stress, your weight becomes increasingly difficult to control, and ultimately you end up reinforcing your feelings of powerlessness. In simple terms, when something happens to bother you (such as a person ignoring you), it makes you feel bad, and you suddenly have the uncontrollable urge to eat. Then, when you eat more than you know you should, it's always followed by regret, self-hatred, and extra pounds."
- Roger Gould, Shrink Yourself: Break Free from Emotional Eating Forever (Get the book.)

"This sugar-filled, unnatural diet makes it difficult for children to make friends and play with those friends and to stay awake and alert in class. For a lot of children, poor nutrition has a huge negative impact; they're not as quick and they don't do as well at school as children who have healthier diets. The kids who are always teetering on the edge of misbehavior because they have attention deficit problems can completely lose the ability to compensate for the sudden fluctuations in their blood sugar and brain chemistry brought on by bad diet."

"Subtle changes in mental function, such as memory or concentration difficulties or emotional blunting, are especially difficult to measure. It becomes difficult to determine if they are caused by a physical trauma, such as psychiatric drug exposure, or if they are caused by emotional problems. Since serotonin nerves spread throughout the brain, it's also difficult to anticipate how permanent damage would manifest itself in the life of the individual. It could affect not only mental function, but hormonal balances and a variety of other bodily functions."

"IC is difficult to diagnose with any test; tests are mostly done to rule out other causes of the symptoms. • There is no proven cause, but bladder permeability and inflammation direct the variety of treatment options available. PREVENTION • No specific prevention strategies have been established, but minimizing bladder irritants seems logical. Classic offenders are coffee, chocolate, alcohol, carbonated drinks, citrus fruits, and tomatoes. understand the therapeutic basis for natural treatments."

"It is difficult to quantify the number of pads or tampons used as a criterion for determining excessive blood loss. Bleeding that meets or exceeds saturation of a super tampon or heavy pad every hour for six to eight hours or more requires immediate intervention. Bleeding that exceeds this deserves an immediate phone call to your practitioner and urgent management for hemorrhage. Some women tolerate excessive blood loss better than others. If you are feeling lightheaded, this is cause for concern. A hemoglobin and hematocrit test can determine if you are anemic from blood loss."

"It is difficult for the ultrasound to detect fibroids smaller than 2 cm. A magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) test is more accurate in assessing the number, size, and location of fibroids, but it does not provide significant enough additional information to be worth the cost. A hysteroscopy can detect submucous tumors. An x-ray can diagnose calcified fibroids."

"However, these culture methods are more difficult and expensive, so new testing methods have been sought. The first nonculture screening tests that were developed included enzyme immunoassays (EIAs), which detect specific chlamydial or gonococcal antigens, and direct immunofluorescent antibody (DFA) tests for C. trachomatis. Nucleic acid hybridization tests followed, which detect C. trachomatis-specific or N. gonorrhoeae-specific deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) or ribonucleic acid (RNA) sequences. The main disadvantage of these tests, especially for C."

"This will help keep a potentially difficult situation from escalating out of control. All in the Family: Factors That Inhibit ADD/ADHD Reversal One of the crudest ironies is that ADD/ADHD propels the family into crisis mode, so that members are constantly focusing on the urgent, not the important.These are the factors that inhibit the reversal of ADD/ADHD: • ADD/ADHD disrupts your child's life, often isolating him or her from friends and siblings, which creates an emotional burden for the parents as well as the child."
- Jay Gordon, The ADD and ADHD Cure: The Natural Way to Treat Hyperactivity and Refocus Your Child (Get the book.)

"Most emotional illnesses have lost their social stigma, and while ADD/ADHD may be difficult to control, you can relax and share your problems with others. Your first task is to assemble your support team. Parents, siblings, and extended family are affected, and everyone must work together to help your child. These commitments include family-wide changes to diet, exercise, and entertainment. Entertainment must not include video games. This must be enforced for all the children in your family, not just the one who has ADD/ADHD. It simply won't work or seem fair otherwise."

"For any family, this is a difficult and disruptive decision. In my work, I witness firsthand the detrimental effects of medication on a child's development. Everything from day-to-day moods to physical development and self-esteem are adversely affected, and oftentimes the side effects are heartbreaking to watch. When I started my career as a pediatrician, medication was understood to be the only option, not only for ADD/ADHD but also for most childhood ailments. I began looking at alternative ways of treating everything from ear infections to behavioral problems."

"This is probably the most difficult question to answer. It is possible that there is no correct answer. It is my guess that there is no perfect probiotic but that for health we need a variety of probiotic species. Like fingerprints, each human's intestinal microflora has a unique makeup. A probiotic containing many types of probiotics will more closely resemble your normal microflora. This is likely the best way to take a probiotic. For optimal health you need both families (Lactobacilli and Bifidobacteria) of probiotics in your diet. Both have health effects for your entire body."

"It's so difficult to change the cycle because simply recognizing it doesn't help, nor does willpower. In order to change this deeply entrenched pattern, you have to go deep below the surface to new places never before explored. You need to analyze what's happening in your life—you need to address that which you're trying to avoid by eating, and arrive at a new response. That is the only way to break the cycle. That's what we're going to do together."

"I have spoken to many addicts who have said that benzos are the most difficult of all drugs to kick.) As word of Valium's addictiveness spread, the stigma associated with the drug grew rapidly. Comedian Rodney Dangerfield said he took it daily along with 136 other pills. Reagan adviser Michael Deaver attributed his deceit before a federal grand jury to the influence of a Valium haze. The stigma often took the form of suspicions of feminine weakness. (As with the SSRIs, women took Valium at twice the rate of men."

"The following things are not difficult to do. In fact, many people who don't struggle with their weight do these things effortlessly. It's just that, for you, you've come to believe that food is the most effective way to dial down the intensity of your feelings. Relaxation Select three relaxation strategies from the list. "To deal with intense feelings without food, I can relax. More specifically, I can_."

"The branch would have been difficult to dilate with a stent and unreasonable to bypass with surgery. Louis had stubborn angina because of this unresolved situation. He experienced chest pain with normal activity, such as walking across a room, or from just mild emotional stress. He had visited several cardiologists for his heart problem. They gave him a number of standard heart drugs, but his situation persisted, and he decided to see Dr. Sinatra for a fresh opinion. Testing showed that Louis had high levels of uric acid in his blood, indicating faulty ATP metabolism."

"This troublesome cholesterol particle is highly inflammatory and thrombotic, and it is a difficult risk factor to overcome. Vitamin C helps us neutralize it. Fish oil, L-carnitine, L-lysine, and proline help here as well. For CVD patients, vitamin C is a must-have supplement. And, as the evolution of medical research indicates, it can help keep you out of cardiovascular trouble to begin with. Selected Research In 1940, the Ottawa pathologist J. C."

"Heart attacks damage and weaken some of the heart muscle, making it more difficult for the heart to pump blood. ACE inhibitors can be utilized after a cardiac event to keep arteries relaxed and maximally open so that more blood can reach the heart muscle. High blood pressure in the presence of a high calcium score (determined by EBT testing) and an abundance of plaque increases the danger of plaque rupture. The rational pharmaceutical approach to stabilize and perhaps reverse this situation is to use an ACE inhibitor such as Altace or Accupril in combination with a statin."

"One of my patients, a particularly difficult case, asked me to contact Rinse for suggestions. During a phone conversation, the chemist told me that he had the secret treatment for atherosclerosis. Being a cocky young cardiologist, I was initially amused, but I soon realized I was talking to somebody who described the chemistry of heart disease in a way I hadn't heard before. He may have been "old" and far removed from the medical world, but he was as sharp as a tack, and his voice resonated with vitality."

"This is difficult to investigate because, clinically speaking, one is either healthy or diseased. There are no measurements for various levels of health. There are a few studies that support the theory of probiotics enhancing health in healthy people. Children who were malnourished, but otherwise healthy, were given L. acidophilus. The childern showed increase weight gain and growth as well as a reduced incidence of diarrhea and fever. The researchers concluded that the probiotics appeared to have a health-promoting effect in these already healthy children. In another study, the effect of L."

"It is a difficult task to eradicate H. pylori in the stomach. For a probiotic to be a good treatment for H. pylori infections it would have to be tolerant to the low pH of the stomach and have the ability to attach to the unique lining of the stomach. L. acidophilus, L. gasseri and L. rhamnosus show potential as effective probiotics to fight H. pylori infections and invasions. Another successful probiotic is L. reuteri. In Italy, researchers investigated the ability of L. reuteri to eradicate H. pylori in a double-blind, placebo-controlled study of 30 infected people."

"You are, in fact, presenting exactly the symptoms that doctors see in 25 percent of cases that turn out to be difficult to diagnose. You go to see your doctor, who examines you and draws some blood. She calls you a few days later to report that your white blood cell count is a bit low; this low count suggests the presence of a viral infection. When you ask her if you have mononucleosis, she responds, "Your symptoms are exactly the same as those of a person with mono, but your blood tests don't support that diagnosis." So you know what you don't have. Now what?"

"When she's faced with a decision that feels difficult to make and she can't get a friend on the phone to consult with, she can immediately turn toward food because she feels too powerless to make any kind of decision on her own, or she can weigh all sides of what's actually happening. She can understand that her friends are busy. She can write a pro-and-con list and try to make a decision on her own. If possible, she can delay making her decision. I call this process of looking at all sides of something before immediately assuming you're powerless a "rein-terpretation."

"The bias is, at best, difficult and often impossible for even the most careful readers to spot, let alone unravel. And simply knowing that it exists is not enough to protect readers from being misled. If we are to begin to solve the crises in American medicine, we first need to stop pretending that the current organization of the production and dissemination of medical knowledge is serving the public's interest."

"When this happens, it is difficult to handle stress. We reach for alcohol to settle our nerves or take pills to calm our moods and racing thoughts. Stressful events are met with feelings of depression or emotional outbursts—road rage, for example. Any of this sound familiar? The Twenty-First-Century Syndrome: Low Adrenal and Low Thyroid Symptoms Hypoadrenia, or low adrenal function, is behind many of the problems that we attribute to getting older. Because the adrenal glands produce so many hormones, the symptoms of adrenal fatigue vary, but fatigue that is worse around 3 to 4 p.m."

"The five-year survival rate for all stages is less than 1 percent since it is usually difficult to make an early diagnosis. The tumors grow for a long time period and demonstrate either no or only a few symptoms. At the time of diagnosis, tumor growth beyond the organ itself is seen in 85 percent of the cases, and in 50 percent of the individuals, the regional lymph groups are already affected. The survival time of an untreated, inoperable pancreas carcinoma is a mean of 3 to 4 months."

"As the predictable future shrinks from decades to years to months and less, there may well come a time when it is difficult to make any forecasts at all. History will have become chaotic —not chaotic in the sense of disorganized, but in the mathematical sense of unpredictable. However much progress we may have made in our inner evolution, it will be impossible for us to be sure what is coming next. Completely unexpected developments could always be just around the corner. Facing Uncertainty Having to face increasing uncertainty could play an important role in our inner liberation."

"The larger cells grew, the more difficult it became for them to feed themselves—another crisis, another danger, and another sign that something new was called for. The response this time was the multicellular organism: cells stayed the same size, but the organism of which they were part was free to grow. Today, life on Earth has arrived at another crisis. The values that have guided the human species through most of its development are no longer working. Preservation of the self may have been very valuable in prehistoric times."

"As if these problems were not difficult enough, our technological development is magnifying the demands made by each person. The average city dweller of today uses far more energy and resources than did a peasant farmer two hundred years ago. There are all those household appliances we use, plus the energy and resources it took to create them. We have central heating and air conditioning; we travel to work and for leisure; we ride the elevator and use many other labor-saving (but energy- and resource-consuming) conveniences."

"It is very difficult to maintain an objective perspective about a particular drug—much less take an opposing point of view—while eating a delicious salmon and wild rice lunch provided by attractive and friendly marketing folks. I've turned down more offers than I can count for "educational" dinners, sporting events, golf and ski outings, and even weekends in the best hotels plus $500. And I must confess to having given in to temptation on several occasions."
