"Undeniably, our organism is controlled by growth and growth-inhibiting factors. When we are young, our body obviously has an abundance of growth factors which permit the body to grow rapidly. At physical maturity, we possess the same number of growth factors and growth-inhibiting factors. As the years pass, the balance changes. The growth factors diminish and the growth-inhibitors increase. Lost cells are replaced by fewer fresh cells and the aging process begins. II. Our organism requires certain resources for the reconstruction of cells."

"The purpose of the research was to follow a cross section of people over a long period of time to identify the then-unknown factors of heart disease. In 1971 the program initiated a second study based on the children of the original group, and the research has now begun to recruit a third group, composed of the grandchildren of the original subjects. Every two years, the participants are evaluated for the risk factors that have been identified throughout the study."

"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. • ADD/ADHD creates problems with your child's school, teachers, and caregivers, and the burden of resolution is often placed on the parents alone."

"Autism is baffling mostly because so many complex factors feed into it. It's not as if you can just isolate the autism germ and kill it. Because of this complexity, if you have a child with autism or one of the other 4-A disorders, you're going to have to become a good medical detective and uncover your own child's unique clues, in order to help him or her heal. I'm going to help you, starting right now. In the next chapter, I'm going to show you how I uncovered the clues about autism that helped Kyle to recover, and that may help your child on his or her road to recovery."

"Besides pus cells and blood, which are now normal in milk produced during machine suckling, the milk is also high in pesticides, herbicides, antibiotics, hormones, radioactive iodine, and disease factors such as mad cow prion and bovine leukemia virus. In addition, research cited by Robert Cohen has made the point that there is up to a gallon of extra mucus in the body created as a result of drinking dairy. The mucus problem is associated with the fact that 87 percent of milk protein is casein, the main ingredient of Elmer's Glue."

In developed countries, "low-income" means poor access to healthy foods, the most affordable diet being one that actually creates a diabetic physiology?nutrient-poor foods high in calories from processed sugar and hydro-genated oils."

"A low-sweet, live-food, non-acidic diet and healthy lifestyle are the key factors to reversing the aging-degenerative process of chronic candidiasis. The diet and lifestyle to do this is exactly the anti-diabetogenic diet and lifestyle of the Culture of Life that we are outlining in this book. Depression According to an evaluation of twenty studies over the past ten years, the prevalence rate of diabetics with major depression is three to four times greater than in the general population."

"Although the results of the UKPDS point to the importance of controlling blood sugar to reduce complications from the disease, the program in this book provides a far greater, more multifaceted strategy proven to work by targeting other key factors (such as oxidative stress and glycation) to achieve significant risk reduction. Diabetes complications fall into two main categories: microvascular and microvascular. Macrovascular complications involve the heart and major blood vessels and can lead to heart attack and stroke."

"While the main diagnostic criterion for prediabetes is a fasting blood sugar level between 100 and 126 mg/dL or a two-hour postprandial [after eating] blood sugar level of 140 to 199 mg/dL as of this writing, metabolic syndrome uses a similar defining blood sugar level as well as several other defining factors, including blood pressure, lipid/ cholesterol levels, and waist circumference. However, both prediabetes and metabolic syndrome share a common factor?insulin resistance."

"We're going to look at social factors in the environment; we're going to look at the communities in which these one hundred thousand children grow up. And we're going to be measuring the impact of exposures on children's health. And the way we're going to measure these exposures is by enrolling families in the study right at the beginning of pregnancy." And, in an effort to learn more about how genes interact with the environment, National Children's Study researchers will take the child's whole history into account and track every stage of his or her development.

"Make sure that you understand all of the factors involved. Don't be intimidated. Do not allow your doctor or his or her staff to downplay or dismiss your concerns about vaccinations. Unfortunately, some pediatricians become quite annoyed when parents question or resist some vaccinations, so be prepared to meet some resistance. Even today, as more and more parents and health professionals are waking up to the potential hazards associated with some vaccines, there's still a lot of opposition out there. I recently asked a respected pediatrician to explain his vaccine protocol to me."

"Precisely because we can change these environment factors, we must work harder at understanding how they affect our health. If as a society we paid more attention to the environmental causes of disease, we could do a better job of protecting our children. Environmental Triggers Researchers have linked environmental exposures to a jaw-dropping number of health problems: learning disabilities, hyperactivity, headaches, asthma, allergies, obesity, diabetes, autism, eye damage, pediatric cancer, and even rheumatoid arthritis."

"Given certain factors, he said, damage and disease are almost to be expected. Kids exposed to air pollution, for example, are more likely to have higher rates of asthma and allergies. Diet is another ingredient in the cauldron. "Kids' immune systems are suppressed—you can't have normal immune function on a diet with so much processed foods and animal products and a diet so low in fruits and vegetables and beans and nuts and seeds. You can't expose the body to so many immune-stimulating challenges and not expect to have some damages in the DNA."

"A number of factors other than carbohydrate content mediate in stimulation of insulin secretion. For example, protein-rich foods or the addition of protein to a carbohydrate-rich meal can stimulate a modest rise in insulin secretion, without increasing blood glucose concentration. Similarly, adding fat to a carbohydrate-rich meal also increases insulin secretion even though plasma glucose response is reduced. 160 140 120 | 100 | 80 ? 60 40 20 w LU Q o o < ?

"Unfortunately, the new childhood epidemics are invariably caused by multiple factors, and require generalism, not specialism. Keri's other problems included poor digestion, which was linked to her allergies. She also had a deficit of calcium, which was related to both poor digestion and to allergies. Furthermore, she suffered from severe inflammation, which was related to everything. The key to treating Keri, as it is with practically every child I see, was to treat the whole person. Doctors need to treat the person that has the disease, not the disease that has the person."

"The damage to the basal ganglia caused by PANDAS and other factors can wreak complete havoc upon the entire brain, because it is vitally important for the advanced areas of the brain to be in control of the lower areas. The advanced areas consist essentially of the rational, inhibitory, logical regions of the upper brain, or neocortex-particularly the frontal lobes, which are located in the area of the forehead. These are incredibly powerful areas, dense with gray matter, that make humans more intelligent than any other creature on earth."

"The letter continued that "the sheep originated from Belgium, a country which has had five cases of BSE in native cattle and is known to have high-risk factors such as the importation of British MBM." The United States had the same risk factors and had imported British MBM right through 1997. "If the sheep were to develop signs of a TSE, we would not be able to differentiate between BSE and scrapie by routine laboratory testing. This differentiation may be made by a series of mouse bio-assays which usually takes at least two years."

"Gastric reflux can be the result of a number of factors: • Gallstones, which can prevent the flow of bile into the small intestine and in turn can affect your ability to neutralize gastric acid from the stomach. • Not enough acid production in the stomach prevents the stomach from emptying and encourages stomach contents to move up into the esophagus. • Hiatus hernia—a weakness in the diaphragm allows the stomach to move up toward the throat—which increases the chances of gastric reflux."

"This research shows how probiotics beneficially alter inflammation and factors that promote allergy development. Preventing Atopic Disease Does this mean that probiotics can prevent the development of atopic dermatitis? At McMaster University in Canada, 1223 pregnant women carrying children at high-risk of developing atopic dermatitis were randomized to use a probiotic preparation or a placebo for two to four weeks before delivery. For sixth months after birth, their infants received the placebo or the same probiotics as their mother, plus galacto-oligosac-charides, a prebiotic."

"You may notice that these factors are very similar to those affecting the number of probiotics in your intestinal tract. It is likely that probiotics play a role in these digestive ailments. Research into the positive effects of probiotics on diarrhea, irritable bowel disease, ulcerative colitis, pouchitis and Crohn's disease offers promise as a method to relieve some of the burden these diseases place on society. There are many health benefits offered by probiotics to the host: improved digestion, immunity and health."

"Blood pressure over 130/85 or someone requiring a blood pressure medication In New Cardiology, we look beyond the classic five factors and also consider the fasting insulin and hemoglobin A1C levels. These measurements give us additional proof for the presence of metabolic syndrome and insulin resistance: 1. Insulin level greater than 17 microunits/L 2. Hemoglobin AIC higher than 6 percent of total HGB Genetics Among the many benefits emerging from the evolving science of genetics are several tests that screen for potential heart and brain problems."

"Doctors will likely include most of these factors in their assessment, but they usually do not measure waist girth and do not tend to look at these measurements collectively. You are at risk if you have any three of the following five characteristics: 1. Waist girth more than 3 5 inches for a woman and more than 40 inches for a male 2. Fasting blood sugar over 100 mg/dl 3. Triglycerides (blood fats) over 150 mg/dl 4. HDL less than 50 mg/dl for a woman and less than 40 mg/dl for a man 5."

"We cover all these factors. Going beyond cholesterol, we pay special attention to toxic blood syndrome, dangerous inflammatory elevations of homocysteine, Lp(a), ferritin, fibrinogen, and CRP, and the newest measure of silent inflammation—the AA/EPA test (explained later in this chapter). We look at hormone levels, particularly estrogen, testosterone, and thyroid. Even a slight hypothyroid status increases the risk of CVD because the body needs thyroid hormone to metabolize cholesterol efficiently. We check metabolic cardiology status—that is, if the cardiovascular system is well energized."

"For example, if you have high blood pressure, high cholesterol, high triglycerides, and are a smoker, you stand a higher risk to develop a cardiac event than if you had just one or two factors. A cardiac event refers to a blockage of life-sustaining blood and oxygen in an artery leading to the heart. Even though we are cardiologists, we are also concerned about the arteries to the brain. The similarity between a heart attack and a stroke is this: both events are caused by arterial blockages or plaque rupture in a vital vessel."

"Of course, there are other emotional factors that can stimulate your desire for food that we've yet to explore, but insecurity outranks other issues by a long shot, and it has a tricky way of masquerading as other things. For instance, you may think you crave almond croissants because your husband tears you down verbally and you want a sweet comfort, but actually, you eat the croissants because you believe the ridiculous things he says about you. It's your own lack of self-esteem that triggers the eating. It's not what he says."

"This is everyone's weak spot, and is one of the main factors that keeps the feeling phobia alive. Use this list to identify the three most relevant self-doubt triggers that drive your urge to eat. "I find I need to eat when I believe I'm__."

"Furthermore, no one made allowances for important extraneous factors, such as a child's illness at the time of vaccination, or the presence of other toxins that the child may have been exposed to. The risks of the new vaccination programs were not brought to the attention of the public until years later, when journalists and public health advocates, including David Kirby, Dr. Stephanie Cave, Dr. Sidney Baker, and Robert Kennedy Jr., began to write about them. By that time, terrible damage had been done."

"These factors must be used to evaluate the recovery time from near-work-induced refractive error. Intervening with respect to your refractive or focusing capacity at a near distance leads you to "normal vision" by gradually producing emmetropia. You could also intervene over your complete nervous balance, since the nervous system is the relevant issue that is responsible for your homeostatic level. The homeostasis level reflects your capability of being in harmony with yourself and your environment."

"After controlling for a number of factors, even the effect of warm hands, he found that the skin of his test mice healed far more quickly when healers had treated them.6 Grad also showed that healers could reduce the growth of cancerous tumors in laboratory animals. Animals with tumors which were not healed died more quickly? Other animal studies have shown that amyloidosis, tumors and laboratory-induced goiter could be healed in laboratory animals.8 Other conducted scientific studies had shown that people could influence yeast, fungi and even isolated cancer cells."

"Other possible contributing factors include pharmacokinetic interactions or drug-disease interactions. EPRs may include dystonias, dyskinesias, akathisia, parkinsonism, exacerbations of Parkinson's disease, and possibly the neuroleptic malignant syndrome. The majority of SSRI-related reactions appear to occur within the first month of treatment."
