"Weight Loss Nearly two-thirds of Americans are obese or overweight. excess weight is a culprit in the onset and severity of many health problems: hypertension, high cholesterol, Type-2 diabetes, coronary heart disease, stroke, gallbladder disease, osteoarthritis, respiratory problems, and some cancers (endometrial, breast, and colon). Excessive weight also complicates symptoms associated with neurological and orthopedic problems. If your health is poor and you want to recover, you cannot carry excess weight. For all these reasons, I close this chapter with a hypnotic weight loss method."

"Among many things, this report estimated that nearly 28,000 excess cases of heart attack or sudden cardiac death were caused by Vioxx. I emphasize to the Committee that this is an extremely conservative estimate. FDA always claims that random- ized clinical trials provide the best data. If you apply the risk-levels seen in the 2 Merck trials, VIGOR and APPROVe, you obtain a more realistic and likely range of estimates for the number of excess cases in the U.S. This estimate ranges from 88,000 to 139,000 Americans. Of these, 30-40% probably died."

"They are especially interested in the reaction of marine plants to global warming, as these plants are the primary shock absorbers of excess carbon dioxide. Algae provide oxygen and other benefits to plant and animal marine life. Algae offer a little wall of protection to the creatures of the sea from the worse excesses of man. I reconsidered my resistance to Acetabularia as a test subject. Algae might be critical to our survival. The health of most life in the seas depends on these lowly, single-celled creatures, and the seas, like the rain forests, represent the lungs of the Earth."

"Yoga or energy practices: Many of us have noticed that the night after yoga class or other energizing practice we have a spontaneous lucid dream. 4. excess physical, mental, or emotional effort during the day: It appears that excess exertion may increase lucid dreams. 5. Normal exuberance: Periods of feeling in good spirits, content, and positive seem to affect the ability to become lucid. 6. Certain foods: Some lucid dreamers have noticed an increase in lucid dreams after eating certain foods."

"Epidemiological studies demonstrated excess risks of ovarian cancer in pre-menopausal women who frequently dusted their genital areas with talc or used talc-dusted tampons. Other studies showed the excess risks of a wide range of cancers in women who used black or dark brown permanent or semi-permanent hair dyes for prolonged periods. Unlike air pollution and water pollution, where it is difficult to get a handle on the sources of our exposure to individual carcinogens, what we put on our bodies in the form of cosmetics and personal care products is something that we can control."

"Blood serum levels of PCBs have been measured in a number of local residents in excess of 100 parts per billion. The CDC considers a blood PCB level in excess of 20 parts per billion to be significantly elevated. In 2003, two lawsuits against the PCB manufacturer and its spinoff companies resulted in a close to three-quarter-million-dollar settlement that was split, after lawyers' fees, among twenty thousand residents. Many of these residents were from socioeconomically underprivileged families who formerly sharecropped near the plant when it was dumping factory waste from PCB production."

"Thus, a pale woman with perpetually cold hands and feet, a pale tongue, and terrible menstrual cramps, could be readily diagnosed as a person with excess yin in China, while her cold, pallor, and problems in menstruation would suggest an excess of phlegm in the West, and kapha in India. Healers in each system could then gain deeper insight into the nature of the patient's complaint by further extending their exploration of cosmological correspondences."

"Excess physical, mental, or emotional effort during the day: It appears that excess exertion may increase lucid dreams. 5. Normal exuberance: Periods of feeling in good spirits, content, and positive seem to affect the ability to become lucid. 6. Certain foods: Some lucid dreamers have noticed an increase in lucid dreams after eating certain foods. The writer Jane Roberts suggested foods like asparagus might be helpful, and a minor touch of caffeine before sleep may assist some people."

"In doing so, we take on excess amounts of the substance. What's more, eating fat causes the body itself to manufacture excessive amounts of cholesterol, which explains why vegetarians who eat oil, butter, cheese, milk, ice cream, glazed doughnuts, and French pastry develop coronary disease despite their avoidance of meat. Medicine subdivides cholesterol into two types. High-density lipoprotein, or HDL, is sometimes known as "good" cholesterol."

"On subsequent visits to two cardiologists, George was prescribed diuretics to rid him of excess fluids and a variety of drugs to help his heart beat more strongly. Even though the fluid overload was controlled, George's heart continued to decline. Then one day he heard those harsh words that sounded like a death sentence: "Let's face it, George. You have a dead heart." It was at this point that his son-in-law, a chiropractor, jumped into the fray."

"Cardiomyopathy may be the result of nutritional deficiencies, longstanding excess alcohol consumption, infection, or severe inflammation such as viral assault on the heart. Cardiomyopathic hearts just don't metabolize enough energy efficiently. No matter the cause, patients with cardiomyopathy are unable to generate enough cardiac energy to keep their heart beating properly, or to allow sufficient relaxation for refilling. Because the causes and consequences of cardiomyopathy are so varied, no single intervention can be relied upon."

"In the mitochondria, there is a large excess of coenzyme Qi0 by comparison with other compounds of the respiratory chain, pointing up its vital role as a "mobile" component of the chain. Coenzyme Qi0 is constantly in motion, picking up an electron and delivering it along the chain, then going back to continue the cycle. Without a constant supply of coenzyme Qio moving along this complex, the activity of the electron transport chain would slow or cease altogether. When a deficiency of coenzyme Qio exists, the cellular "engines" misfire and, over time, may eventually fail or even die."

"Because glutamate and other excitatory neurotransmitters normally cause the nerve cells to fire electrically, it is believed that, in excess, they cause neurons to fire (excite) themselves to death. Although it is fairly easy to demonstrate this destructive process in a variety of experimental circumstances, for example nerve cells isolated in a dish, no one is sure that this excitatory damage actually occurs in any natural disease process."

"And as recent as the last century, dementia was actually associated with moral degeneration—namely, drinking, sexual excess, and masturbation. We are the first human beings to think of brain aging itself as a (tragic) neurological disease that can be repaired. lessons from the east The loss of cognitive functioning that we experience as we age can be framed in a much more sympathetic way than we do in the rationally minded West."

"Disturbances in glucose metabolism had been reported in Alzheimer's disease decades ago, with scientists theorizing that either the brain of a diabetic person lacks sufficient glucose to function properly or excess sugar in a diabetic person's bloodstream does vascular damage that affects blood flow to neurons. In Madrid, evidence was presented to suggest that antidiabetic drugs could be used as a treatment for AD."

"Despite these good reasons to anticipate the dawning of a "new era" in the Taiwanese economy, there still seemed to many observers to be an air of speculative excess to the Taiwan stock market of 1986?7. Volume of trade soared, increasing sevenfold from January to September 1987, to exceed the combined volume of all Asian markets excluding Japan.3 Price-earnings ratios reached 45, compared with 16 at the beginning of the year. Taiwan was in the grip of a gambling fever that expressed itself in other venues besides the stock market."

"The New York Times and the Commercial and Financial Chronicle consistently pointed out what they interpreted as speculative excess. Paul M. Warburg of the International Acceptance Bank decried the "unrestrained speculation."16 Yet we know, from the level of the stock market itself, that the weight of public sentiment was overwhelmingly positive in the 1920s. New Era Thinking of the 1950s and 1960s New era thinking also seemed, judging from media accounts, to undergo a sudden surge in the mid-1950s, when the market increased 94."

"As of Monday morning there was news that the Interstate Commerce Commission would proceed with its plan to recapture some excess railroad income. There was a favorable report on the earnings of U.S. Steel. New information was reported on charges that the Connecticut Manufacturer's Association had succeeded in introducing into a tariff bill provisions favoring Connecticut. Mussolini had made a speech saying that the "men and institutions of fascism can face any crisis, even if it is sudden."

"If we are right in thinking that places like Salmon were founded by Chaco households, or that they absorbed excess population, then the extraordinary road system built by the Chacoans makes sense. Cha-coan "roads" were first identified in the 1890s and again in the 1920s. In the 1930s, early aerial photographs revealed faint traces of what appeared to be canals emanating from the canyon. During the 1970s and 1980s, a new generation of investigators used aerial photographs and side-scan radar to place the canyon at the center of a vast ancient landscape."

"Medical experts do not know precisely how, but it seems to offer some protection against heart attacks—by collecting excess cholesterol and carrying it away from the arteries to the liver, which can break it down and dispose of it. As total blood cholesterol rises, you need more and more of the HDL cholesterol to protect you against heart disease. Low-density lipoprotein, or LDL, is "bad" cholesterol. When too much of it is present in the bloodstream, it tends to build up along artery walls, helping to form the plaques that narrow blood vessels and ultimately may clog them altogether."

"The number of emissions he then plotted on his graph reflected any excess increase or decrease from the norm. In all three instances, our subjects registered a significant decrease in bio-photons during the meditation sessions, compared with the control periods. The dinoflagellates had been killed by the acid, in the end (one possible reason why they had been so difficult for our meditators to detect). Nevertheless, Popp said, their response (a lowering of emissions by nearly 140,000) was significantly different from the normal emissions of a dying organism."

"Typically, the Western diet contains an excess of protein—especially animal protein. The nutrition plan I recommend provides a variety of healthy plant proteins, somewhere between 50 and 70 grams every day. That is entirely adequate for a healthy lifestyle. Could a low cholesterol level be dangerous for my health? Some years ago, there were reports that low blood cholesterol levels might be associated with lung, liver, or colon cancer and that they might also contribute to accidental deaths and suicide."

"Developing resistance to the neurotoxic effects of excess levels of hormones like Cortisol and other glucocorticoids ?Promoting resistance against the depletion of neurotransmitters such as acetylcholine and dopamine, which occurs with age •Recruiting other brain regions to perform tasks •Increasing cerebral blood flow and metabolism and conferring greater resistance to the neurotoxic effects of environmental toxins A study published by the journal Psychological Medicine combined data from 29,000 individuals taken from twenty-two other studies."

"Symptoms of nerve damage include numbness, tingling, increased sensitivity to touch, insensitivity to pain and temperature, and loss of coordination. The excess sugar also damages blood vessels that carry the oxygen and nutrients to the nerves. People with Syndrome X are more likely to develop obstruction to the arteries and therefore increased or decreased blood flow to the extremities, which creates increased rates of amputations. Up to 70 percent of people with Syndrome X have some form of nerve damage. It is even worse in smokers."

"Eating meat can produce excess uric acid and other irritating by-products, causing an unnecessary burden on the body. 11. Avoid having an excess of one or a few foods in the diet. Reason: An excess of one or a few foods may provide too much of certain food chemicals for the body to handle, causing irritation, inflammation or possible allergies. The average American diet is 29% wheat, 25% milk and 9% sugar, all acid-forming foods which lead to and aggravate any rheumatic condition. excess of a few foods usually means lack of variety in other foods, which leads to mineral deficiencies."

"In addition to these two tests, there are two other equally easy-to-administer tests that check for the level of glycation that is occurring in the body and identify those individuals at high risk for the damaging consequences of excess glycation. We discuss these often-overlooked tests in depth in chapter 4. Prediabetes is diagnosed if the fasting blood glucose level is from 100 to less than 126 mg/dL (below 100 mg/dL is considered to be normal). A reading greater than or equal to 126 mg/dL is defined as diabetes."

"It is also a proinflammatory condition, which means that excess adipose (fat) tissue releases substances such as inflammatory cytokines and other factors that are associated with insulin resistance, elevated blood pressure, and oxidized cholesterol (which promotes the formation of plaque), all of which are implicated in heart disease and stroke. A recent study that looked at more than 172,000 individuals found that the risk of heart attack or death was 78 percent higher among people who had metabolic syndrome than among those who did not."

"The risks associated with the accumulation of excess fat around the abdomen have been known for some time. In 2005, researchers published the results of a study that followed 27,270 men for thirteen years. During that time, 884 men developed type 2 diabetes. Compared to men with the smallest waists (29-34 inches), men with larger waists were at least twice as likely to develop diabetes, and those with the largest waists (40 inches or greater) were up to twelve times more likely to develop diabetes."

"A study {Journal of the American Society of Nephrology, January 2007) showed that diabetes patients who are obese (especially those with excess fat around the abdomen) are at increased risk of developing kidney disease. The patients were part of the landmark Diabetes Control and Complications Trial (DCCT), which showed that intensive control of diabetes significantly reduces the risk of kidney disease and other diabetic complications. In this analysis, the risk of kidney disease was 65 percent less among patients who were on intensive therapy versus those on conventional therapy."
