"Guandalini reports the results of an unpublished study of 2108 infants and toddlers in Italy, of which 53 percent of the babies under three-months old who had reacted poorly to dairy formula also reacted to soy formula.39 "The amount of phytoestrogens that are in a day's worth of soy infant formula equals 5 birth control pills," says Mike Fitzpatrick, a New Zealand toxicologist.40 A study reported in The Lancet41 found that the "daily exposure of infants to isoflavones in soy infant-formulas is 6?"

"Infants exclusively fed on a soy-based formula have 13,000 to 22,000 times more estrogen compounds in their blood than babies fed a milk-based formula. This would be the estrogenic equivalent of at least five birth control pills per day. For this reason, premature development of girls (early puberty) has been linked to the use of soy formula, as has the underdevelopment of males. Infant soy formula and soy milk have been linked to autoimmune-thyroid disease, and now also to death."

"The entire history of baby formula has been the history of one overlooked nutrient after another: Liebig missed the vitamins and amino acids, and his successors missed the omega-3s, and still to this day babies fed on the most "nutritionally complete" formula fail to do as well as babies fed human milk. Even more than margarine, infant formula stands as the ultimate test product of nutritionism and a fair index of its hubris. This brings us to one of the most troubling features of nutritionism, though it is a feature certainly not troubling to all."

"The childhood perspective clings to the vestiges of an illusion that you can measure your behavior by a simple formula, a formula learned in childhood and endowed with the authority of parents who know best. This formula can't be questioned because dropping it means losing the security provided by believing in the illusion of one right authority who has the virtue of being familiar and known, no matter how harsh that authority is. To recover from childhood, you need to stop automatically believing Harriet, accepting when Harriet accuses you that the accusation is either all right or all wrong."
- Roger Gould, Shrink Yourself: Break Free from Emotional Eating Forever (Get the book.)

"One of the principles behind the health and weight-loss formula in this book is not to be overly concerned about the macronutrient balance; if you eat healthful foods, you will automatically get enough of all three macronutrients as long as you do not consume too many calories from white flour, sugar, and oil. So don't fear eating foods rich in carbohydrates and don't be afraid of eating fruit because it contains sugar. Even the plant foods that are high in carbohydrate contain sufficient fiber and nutrients and are low enough in calories to be considered nutritious."
- Dr. Joel Fuhrman, Eat to Live: The Revolutionary formula for Fast and Sustained Weight Loss (Get the book.)

"The labeling information for both Prozac and Sarafem is as follows: Prozac empirical formula: C17H18F3NO*HCI F3C —(( )>—0-CHCH2CH2NHCH3 • HCI Sarafem empirical formula: C17H18F3NO«HCI F3C—^(^yj)—O—CHCH2CH2NHCH3 •HCI What part of the above formulas is different? Obviously, there is no difference. Even the description of the drug provided by the FDA is identical: Prozac: "the antidepressant, antiobsessive-compulsive and antibulimic actions of fluoxetine are presumed to be linked to its inhibition of CNS (central nervous system) neuronal uptake of serotonin.'"

"It prohibited her from breast-feeding Priya, and Priya could barely hold down conventional formula. Anju tried some soy formulas-even Alimentum, which was predigested-but most of it came back up. The Alimentum was supposed to be the easiest for newborns to handle, but it had corn oil in it, and Priya seemed to be sensitive to anything that contained corn oil or corn syrup. As Priya got a little older and started to eat solid foods, Anju found that a number of foods made Priya gassy, bloated, and irritable. Priya was a sensitive baby."

"If they're formula feeding, there may be choices of formulas that are better than others." Another approach involves herbs. "There are both homeopathic and botanical herbs that have been shown to help reduce colic in babies. They may work through reducing stomach spasms, intestinal spasms. Chamomile's a great example. There was actually a study where they compared giving chamomile tea to babies, versus a placebo. And the babies who got the chamomile tea did much better." Dr. Rosen also recommends infant massage, which he says is "terrific for reducing stress in babies, and in parents."

"Most of us in primary care still advocate breastfeeding as ideally preferable to formula feeding," he wrote to me. "But with the addition of common brand organic formulas with added essential fatty acids and, in some cases, probiotics, the boundaries are blurring. I know this is controversial, but these are real-life questions families are dealing with today." In conclusion, he wrote, "Perhaps the ideal situation is trying to ensure that breast milk is as nontoxic as can be."

"Applying the formula, the square root of one percent of that room's population was only .244 of a person! With the requirement of less than one person's belief in the absolute knowing that the healing had already happened, the physical reality of the woman's body changed. Although the number in this case was small, the formula still held true. As noted before, that total is the minimum needed to jump-start a new reality. In all probability, 100 percent of the people in the room experienced the feeling of her healing, and it took two minutes and 40 seconds for her body to mirror their reality."
- Gregg Braden, The Divine Matrix: Bridging Time, Space, Miracles, and Belief (Get the book.)

"To determine how many people are needed to work together for peace and healing in that group, the formula suggests the following: 1. Determine the total number of people present. 2. Calculate one percent of that total number (multiply the total from step 1 by .01). 3. Calculate the square root of the one percent (enter the number from step 2, and press the V function on your calculator). This formula produces numbers that are smaller than we might expect. For example, in a city of a million people, the total is about 100. In a world of 6 billion people, it's only about 8,000."

"Healthy infants between four and 10 months of age were either given their regular formula, or a formula supplemented with Bifidobacterium lactis or Lactobacillus reuteri. The chidren receiving probiotics did not get sick as often as the children who were not supplemented. The children receiving L. reuteri were the least sick. In other words, L. reuteri appears to prevent illness best in children, compared to B. lactis or placebo. According to this study, supplementing with L."

"Those who follow the formula described in this book invariably find that their health improves and their chest pains gradually disappear. Of hundreds of cardiac patients treated in this manner, all but a few have done exceptionally well, with chest pain resolving in almost every case (only one went to repeat angioplasty because of a recurrence of chest symptoms), and I have had no patient die from cardiac arrest. With the help of their doctors, most patients can slowly reduce ?and eventually cease ?their dependency on drugs."

"Use of the free formula interrupted women's lactation process, preventing their breasts from producing enough milk and obliging them to buy formula once the samples ran out. In the Third World, many people lack access to clean water, and poor people often cannot afford to buy sufficient formula. Women who were induced to use Nestle formula in place of breast milk often had no choice but to dilute the formula with contaminated water, leading to diarrhea, dehydration and death among Third World infants."

"The traditional formula for expressing the relationship that these substances have to one another is strongly reminiscent of Ayurvedic ideas and both Siddha and European alchemy: 'Refine the jing to transform the qi, refine the qi to transform the shen, refine the shen and return to the void,' although western alchemical formulations focused on purification as a tool to gain access to the divine, rather than as a means by which to reunite with the primal void."
- Roberta Bivins, Alternative Medicine?: A History (Get the book.)

"As many mothers and grandmothers know, the breast-milk-versus-formula-feeding debate has been a contentious one since the emergence of the formula industry in the early twentieth century. Aggressive marketing campaigns undertaken by the Nestle Corporation have been assailed for their role in deterring mothers from breast-feeding, and denying infants its proven benefits. Since being able to breast-feed is a sensitive window of a child's neurological development, health-care professionals who deal with childbirth, especially nurses, must take a proactive role in essential health education."

"While I cannot reveal the exact formula for my Natural Balance Cream, I can outline some of the critical variables that define its excellence and efficacy: • Dr. Randolph's Natural Balance Cream is a bio-identical formulation of progesterone. This means that the molecules of progesterone suspended in the cream have exactly the same molecular structure as those produced by the human body. The body recognizes, receives, and utilizes these molecules. The parent molecule for progesterone comes from a substance known as diosgenin, which is found in soy or Mexican wild yam."

"Applying the Eat to Live formula to reverse and prevent heart disease, autoimmune illnesses, and so much more opens your critical eye to a new way of looking at your well-being. Health care becomes self-care, with food your new weapon to prevent and defeat illnesses. This one is a key chapter for everyone, not just for those with chronic medical problems but for all who want to live a longer, healthier life. Chapters eight, nine, and ten put the advice into action and teach you how to make the healthy eating plan of this book taste great."

"The infants were given a formula supplemented with a probiotic, Bifidobacterium lactis. The study included a control group who were given an infant formula that contained no additional probiotics. As with all studies, it is important to measure the effects. A compound found in the blood, called IgE, can be used to measure inflammation. Interestingly, the level or amount of bad microbes (E. coli) was related to the level of IgE in these infants. As such, the researchers think that bad microbes are involved in the development of an allergic response. How does this work?"

"That omega-3 s play an important role in mental function has been recognized since the 1980s, when it was found that babies fed on infant formula supplemented with omega-3 s scored significantly higher on tests of both mental development and visual acuity than babies receiving formula supplemented only with omega-6. Could it be that the problem with the Western diet is a gross deficiency in this essential nutrient? A growing number of researchers have concluded that it is, and they voice frustration that official nutritional advice has been slow to recognize the problem."

"After her session the acupuncturist gave her a formula to bring home and begin taking. The day after the treatment, she was cleaning her shelves at home and her field guide fell off the shelf to an open page with a picture of a plant whose leaves looked very similar to the one in her garden. She raced outside to compare the picture with the leaf, and, sure enough, it was the same. It was as if a light switch turned on inside her. She ran to look at the formula the acupuncturist had given her and discovered the main ingredient was the same plant!"

"Recently, however, a significant oral chelation formula has been developed that works well: DetoxMaxPlus. We described it at length in chapter 6, under the section on phosphatidylcholine. DetoxMaxPlus contains EDTA, which binds and removes toxic metals, along with the arterial nourishing effects of phosphatidylcholine in a combined formula. This is chelation in a more convenient and less expensive form. Whatever the technique—oral or IV—to rid the body of toxic minerals, this is a needed treatment in medicine. It is critical to detoxify patients."

"Caribbean Blue Natural Basics, for example, is advertised as a "100% all-natural sunscreen formula" that contains "natural zinc oxide in a new patented transparent form" to prevent skin whitening. When I phoned the manufacturers to inquire about the new transparent form of zinc oxide in the formula (called "microfine" in the ingredient list), I was told this language referred to a nanoparticle ingredient."

"What happens when we heat up formula in plastic baby bottles? Are hormone disruptors leaching into the milk? What about soy formula? Formulas based on soybeans can contain such large amounts of phytoestrogens that infants fed only soy formulas are being exposed to doses six to eleven times higher than doses known to alter a woman's menstrual cycle. Infant formulas contain at least tenfold (and possibly as much as one hundred times) the amount of phytoestrogens found in breast milk."

"Both the herbal treatments were better for IBS symptoms than the placebo, but the individualized CHM was not better than the standard fixed formula.9 This study was well designed and conducted and offers promising results for CHM treatment of IBS, but I would like to see another replication study. In the meantime I won't discourage you from using CHM, but you don't need to pay for an individual practitioner.

"Qiq in commercially available products, including an oil suspension in soft-gel capsules, powder-filled hard-shelled capsules, a tablet formula, and Q-Gel solubilized soft-gel capsules. These two studies, each involving twenty-four healthy volunteers, demonstrated that the bioavailability of coenzyme Q10 can be greatly enhanced by using 2.00 -i 0.00 -*- 0 24 48 72 96 120 144 Time Figure 4.4.
