"This stretch reflex helps the muscle to lengthen and helps coordination for the best execution. In the eye muscle, the active static stretching exercises help relax the antagonist muscle and develop strength in the agonist. The best eye stretching exercise is the "rotation from a fixed point" test described previously, because it permits the feedback of perfect coordination."

"Since folic acid helps prevent neural-tube defects and protects against preeclampsia, it's become standard practice for U.S. women of childbearing age to take a folate supplement. Health-food stores carry a number of good prenatal vitamins, but you should always check with a professional before making your selection. It's crucial to get the dosage right. (Too much vitamin A, for example, can damage a developing fetus.) In this, as in so many other aspects of pregnancy, a good doctor will guide your decisions. But be careful not to rely too much on vitamins."

"Adequate vitamin D and the calcium it helps absorb may decrease the production of fat. Increased intake of vitamin D, calcium, and magnesium in the form of low-fat dairy products enhances weight loss along with calorie restriction. It appears that low calcium due to inadequate vitamin D or calcium in the diet triggers the release of the parathyroid hormone, which increases the concentration of activated vitamin D in fat cells and causes them to store energy as more fat. Vitamin D affects your appetite as well."
- James Dowd and Diane Stafford, The Vitamin D Cure (Get the book.)

"Carbohydrate-rich foods boost another neurotransmitter, serotonin, which helps with mood and sleep. Wheat, and particularly the gluten part of the wheat, is metabolized into at least eleven different opiates. It is for these reasons that this year of support to break our addiction to the foods offered in the Culture of Death is so crucial."

"Trains our body and mind to ask for the foods and lifestyle choices of the Culture of Life, thus preventing the re-creation of diabetes; ?Helps support and sustain us in making the psychophysiological shift into the Culture of Life. Juice Recipes We are drinking low-glycemic, Phase 1 juices made fresh at home with either a press-style juicer (such as a Green Star) or a high-speed blender (Vitamix). The juice is separated from the pulp by straining with a fine mesh bag. We are not demonizing fat, protein, or carbohydrates, and we are not eliminating any of these macronutrients."

"The water creates a small film of water that helps lubricate the interface of the joint. With dehydration this lubricating film of water evaporates and the joints rub right on each other. Back pain, particularly lower back pain, and sciatica are often the result of the intervertebral discs becoming dehydrated. These discs normally create a space cushion between the vertebrae by virtue of how much water they can hold."

"The key is that there are potentially significant results and in the next chapter we will be presenting a theory that helps us develop and understand the rationale for the 21-Day+ Program for healing diabetes, especially Type-2 and gestational, as well as providing a path for future research. To prove something is more difficult than theorizing. For example, it took more than thirty years to prove that smoking was directly linked to lung cancer. The beautiful thing is that the approach is both safe and outstanding for developing high-level wellness. It is a win/win proposition."

"It also inhibits the overproduction of glucose by the liver, helps with weight loss, improves endothelial function, and favorably affects cholesterol and triglyceride levels. When used alone, it rarely causes hypoglycemia (abnormally low blood glucose). The drug comes in two forms: regular, which can be taken before meals, and extended release, which can be taken once daily. It is often prescribed along with another insulin sensitizer drug class, thiazolidinediones. Potential side effects include diarrhea, bloating, constipation, and heartburn."

"It has largely been valued as a way to boost the immune system and as an adaptogen, which means it helps increase the body's resistance to stress. Today it is still used for this purpose, but it also is proving helpful in supporting metabolic health and healthy blood sugar levels. At the University of Toronto, a group of researchers found that Asian ginseng, when compared with a placebo, improved glucose and insulin control in people with type 2 diabetes."

"HDL transports cholesterol away from the arteries and back to the liver so it can be eliminated from the body and helps remove cholesterol from plaque in the blood vessels. ?High triglycerides. Elevated levels of this form of fat typically are seen along with low HDL cholesterol. This combination of abnormal lipid levels is very common in people who have diabetes and who are obese or physically inactive. High triglyceride and low HDL levels are important risk factors for ischemic stroke (stroke that occurs due to a blockage of blood flow to the brain) among people who have heart disease."

"Sites in the body especially susceptible to the accumulation of glycotoxins include the renal glomerulus (in the kidney), the retina (the membrane at the back of the eye that helps you see), and important blood vessels like the coronary arteries (the arteries that supply blood to the heart). We also know that glycotoxins play a significant role in causing chronic diseases that are associated with underlying inflammation, such as heart disease and neuropathy."

"The sweating caused by deep heat helps eliminate dead skin cells and improves skin tone and elasticity. Weight loss is facilitated through use of an infrared sauna, probably due to the increase in growth hormone that it produces. It has been calculated that one can burn 600 calories in 30 minutes in an infrared sauna. Health benefits can certainly be obtained in a conventional sauna or steambath as well, but the infrared sauna has a greater range of therapeutic efficiency, especially for detoxification."

"For a topical remedy, Boiron also makes Arnicare Gel, which helps bruises heal faster and soothes minor muscule aches and pains. Arnica Montana can even treat serious acute pain: One summer at the ranch, when Wyatt got bucked off a horse and broke his arm, he took only the Boiron Arnica Montana pellets for pain relief. Belladonna, an herb with many therapeutic healing properties, is another great alternative to conventional painkillers. Bug hites and stings. Boiron's Apis Mellifica pellets help relieve minor allergic reactions and skin irritations."

"Part three puts the Vitamin D Cure into perspective and helps motivate you to get started on your journey to better health. 112 The Vitamin D Cure for Obesity, High Blood Pressure, Diabetes, and Heart Disease I he metabolic syndrome is the constellation of obesity, high blood pressure, insulin resistance, and cardiovascular disease. Vitamin D deficiency is associated with important changes in metabolism that drive these diseases. Vitamin D deficiency ?increases the storage of energy as abdominal fat and decreases muscle mass; ?"

"Another significant study from the University of Arkansas found that many autistic children are genetically deficient in their ability to produce glutathione, an antioxidant produced in the brain that helps remove mercury from the body. Urinary porphyrin studies confirm that many autistic children have much higher than normal concentrations of mercury in their bodies. In 2007, Generation Rescue (www.generationrescue.org), a parent-led organization, released the findings of its independent study comparing vaccinated and unvaccinated children in nine counties in Oregon and California."

"Jill James found that many autistic children are genetically deficient in their ability to produce glutathione, an antioxidant generated in the brain that helps remove mercury from the body. Dr. Andrew Wakefield's research, which was published in The Lancet in 1998, suggests there is a possible increase in autism and other pervasive developmental disorders in children who received the triva-lent measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) vaccine. (For more studies linking mercury toxicity to autism, see p. 271 in the resources section."

"For example, when pharmaceutical or nutraceutical antifungal meds are taken for several months or longer, it helps to take silymarin and/or phosphatidylcholine, or transdermal iV-acetyl-cysteine, in order to protect the liver. Liver enzymes can occasionally increase with some of these antifungal medications. Therefore, it's also wise to monitor liver function approximately once per month when using these medications. Another particularly resistant chronic infective disorder is the autoimmune streptococcal condition known as PANDAS."

"This also helps increase glutathione levels, and powerfully boosts the methylation process. It is also effective to give methyl-B-12 in conjunction with folinic acid, TMG and/or DMG, plus zinc. The levels of glutathione can sometimes also be raised even further by adding vitamin B-6. (For more details, see Chapter 18.) Administering glutathione can be a terrific way to help clear the toxins from your child's body, but there are also other ways. Some can be quite effective."

"Another smart tactic that helps children who are Th-2 skewed is simply to protect them from the toxins, irritants, and allergens that overexcite their Th-2 cells. In almost all cases, both of these strategies must be applied. However, all children must be treated individually, because some autistic children, in contrast to kids with asthma, are actually Th-1 skewed, instead of Th-2 skewed. This, too, can cause inflammation. The key is balance. Another type of T-cell, regulatory T-cells, help balance-Th-1 and Th-2-but not always sufficiently."

"This rule helps to obscure the many links between the two disorders. These links, which have been carefully documented by author and autism expert Diane Kennedy, include the following: THE ADHD-AUTISM LINKS Autism-Spectrum Traits ADHD Traits Poor social skills; verbosity, inability to be empathetic. Low awareness of physical danger. Tantrums, outbursts. Overactivity in some people, lethargy in others. Poor eye contact. Work can be careless and sloppy. Tendency to have poor gross and fine motor skills, including messy handwriting, awkward gait, and a lack of coordination."

"DetoxMaxPlus contains PC in combination with EDTA, a synthetic amino acid that binds toxic metals and helps remove them from the body (see chapter 8 for more information). A high-speed agitation process renders the PC particles so small that they readily absorb through the gut and into the cells, where they then release the embedded EDTA. The combination of ingredients, along with enhanced absorption, yields impressive therapeutic benefit. Along with PC, you get heavy metal removal, and thus help neutralize another source of inflammation and plaque."

"The liver turns it into a bile salt, a digestive enzyme that helps break down dietary fat in the small intestine. Afterward, this by-product descends into the colon to be excreted along with digestive wastes. We've simplified the scenario, but the bottom line is that these conversions naturally lower the content of cholesterol in the blood. A lower concentration of blood cholesterol also serves to coax excess cholesterol out of cells, including the cells that line blood vessels, and into the circulation."

"Glutathione helps prevent harmful oxidation and protects against the formation of arterial plaque. Although research is limited, evidence suggests that mercury inhibits glutathione, and if selenium is deficient, the combination creates conditions for runaway LDL oxidation. While most cardiologists are not aware of the toxic metal threat, the research available indicates to us that heavy metal overload must be taken seriously. We believe these toxins play an active role in inflammation and plaque formation."

"Taking vitamin B supplements, as we describe in the next chapter, helps keep homocysteine in check. Genetic testing is not completely foolproof or widely understood by the public, but it should be considered, especially in challenging cases such as in individuals with high blood pressure, clotting tendencies, and homocysteine levels that just don't respond to regular treatment. The presence of a particular gene or allele offers clues as to whether a patient may respond to a certain diet, medication, or supplement."

"You can be happy if it also helps you reach some other goal. Declare to yourself that you're not going to make a deal with life where you'll lose weight only if you get the payoff you're after. Avoid the Failure Strategies Because most dieters have at least some unrealistic and conflicted reasons for losing weight, they tend to fall prey to what I call "the failure strategies." Before you can learn new eating strategies that will lead you to weight loss for a lifetime, you need to understand why the approaches you've tried so far haven't worked."
- Roger Gould, Shrink Yourself: Break Free from Emotional Eating Forever (Get the book.)

"If beans give you gas or bloating, it helps if you make sure you chew them very well. It takes some time for your digestive tract to learn how to digest them better, so you may have to start out with a smaller quantity and increase the amount gradually. Don't stop eating beans entirely. It will make things worse when you try to eat them again. Instead, just eat a smaller amount every day. 5) Whole Grains Whole grains include barley, buckwheat (kasha), millet, oats, quinoa, brown rice and wild rice, all of which are high in fiber."

"Staying connected helps him maintain a sense of belonging, as well as a sense of pride in his professional accomplishments. In his career, my patient had discovered a "constant"a law of nature that became known throughout the world. Whereas my globe-trotting patient maintained quality of life through world travel, my physicist patient seemed to draw strength from the stability of his relationships with former colleagues. The lesson from these stories is simple: One of the keys to successful aging is to do what you love for as long as you can."

"Since lucid dreams are predisposed to follow beliefs, expectations, and focus, concentrating on the frightful characteristics helps precipitate the frightful situation. If you can suddenly change your beliefs, expectations, or focus, then you will likely resolve the situation. If you remain fearful, you prolong the fearful lucid situation. What about lucid dreams where distracting dream figures appear?"

"Hodes notes the existence of several other, less widespread approaches that are available, involving nutrient substances that increase brain function: An Israeli egg yolk lecithin substance, AL721, which was originally used to give energy and reduce cholesterol in elderly people, and was used to combat HIV and AIDS, also helps the brain. You might try Dr. Ana Asian's treatment called Gerovital (GH3) and live cell therapy, which are illegal in America but available in certain other countries. There is also something called super-triple-phos-phatidylcholine."
