"According to this theory, illness is explained as due to "cold" causes, such as entry of air into the body, or "hot" causes, such as excessive consumption of hot foods, with curing conforming to a doctrine of opposites: hot remedies to drive out cold and cold remedies to extract heat. The classic study of the "hot/cold dichotomy" was conducted by George Foster181, who traced its origins to Greek humoral pathology brought by Spain to the New World."

"Imagine putting your right hand into a bucket of extremely hot water. As your hand goes in the bucket, your immediate thought is, "I'm not sure I can even keep my hand in this thing!" And the water keeps getting hotter. Imagine the hottest tap water is in the bucket to begin with and that someone is using a teakettle full of boiling water to refresh the bucket at intervals. Now it's so hot it feels like it is burning the skin off your hand. Still, you leave your hand in the bucket. The heat is almost unbearable. You can feel it crawling up your fingers, all the way back to your palm."

"Bromine is also used in dyes, pesticides, as an antibacterial agent for pools and hot tubs, as fumigant for agriculture, and is still used today in many prescription medications (i.e. asthma treatment). In his book, Iodine: Why You Need - Why You Can't Live Without It, (2004), Dr. David Brownstein, M.D. notes the following: Bromine intoxication (i.e. bromism) has been shown to cause delirium, psychomotor retardation, schizophrenia, and hallucination. Subjects who ingest enough bromide feel dull and apathetic and have difficulty concentrating."

"Seawater could of course never cross this mountain range, however hot it gets. But the East Antarctic sheet might be vulnerable via the back door, where it too is anchored below sea level. Most scientists don't even realise it, but these little-known submarine beds extend to the very centre of the ice sheet. I am not suggesting that collapse would happen instantaneously - in fact it would take centuries, and probably millennia, to melt all of the Antarctic's ice."

"This, then, is the most likely forecast for the Sahel: whilst rainfall totals overall may indeed rise, these increases will come in damaging flash-flood rainfall, interspersed with periods of intensely hot drought conditions. According to some historians, the greener Sahara of 6,000 years ago was the geographical basis for the mythical Garden of Eden, its original inhabitants expelled not by God for bad behaviour, but by a devastating drying of the climate."

"Life even regulates the nutrient cycles of the planet: had ocean-dwelling organisms not sequestered carbon into limestone and chalk over millions of years, our habitable planet would long ago have turned into Venus, which suffers blistering surface temperatures of 500°C - hot enough to melt lead -thanks to an inhospitable atmosphere composed 96 per cent of carbon dioxide. Some of these ecosystem services can be replaced by technology, as many economists might suggest. Think, for example, of hydroponics: the replacing of natural soil with synthetic rooting material and a cocktail of chemicals."

"A doubling of what the study calls 'extremely hot days' is also projected, whilst land areas around the Mediterranean can expect three to five additional weeks of 'heatwaves' (defined as days with temperatures over 35°C). Islands such as Sardinia and Cyprus only tend to escape the worst because of the cooling influence of the sea. The high temperatures will be aggravated by drought, with areas in the southern Mediterranean projected to lose around a fifth of their rainfall."

"Popp began thinking about light in nature. Light, of course, was present in plants, the source of energy used during photosynthesis. When we eat plant foods, it must be, he thought, that we take up the photons and store them. Say that we consume some broccoli. When we digest it, it is metabolized into carbon dioxide (C02) and water, plus the light stored from the sun and present in photosynthesis. We extract the C02 and eliminate the water, but the light, an electromagnetic wave, must get stored."

"However, flax oil works well as a salad dressing base, or added to hot cereal, soup, sauces, or dips as well. It can also be taken as a supplement in the soft gel form, if you prefer. / Raw vegetables are an excellent source of fiber, however it is important to remember that cooking changes everything! Heat breaks down the fiber, changing the quality of the vegetable to a more readily available form of carbohydrate, causing a more rapid release of blood sugar."

"Warnings About a Miracle Drug: Reports of Suicide Attempts in Prozac Users Raise Doubts About the Popular Antidepressant" That was the title of a Time magazine article 14 years before the antide-pressant-suicide link again became a hot media topic. Most of the stories in 1990 were focused on suicide among adult users of antidepressants. Children were rarely prescribed these drugs in those days. However, in 2004 it was the antidepressant-suicide link among children that became the center of attention, and that led to congressional hearings on that issue."

"That concern, combined with the discomfort of hot flashes, was enough for Mom to decide it was time to take it herself.2 For nearly 12 years she faithfully took her Premarin brand of estrogen.3 (Premarin is derived from pregnant mares' urine; hence, the name.) At that time it was not universally agreed that estrogen was linked to breast cancer and endometrial (uterine) cancer, although those concerns had been discussed for decades."

"Who is most apt to spend a lot of time looking at magazines that have lots of articles on how to look "hot" or "sexy"? It is the very group which is most likely to become anorexic. One study related to eating disorders and the media's role in the increase in that problem provided subscriptions to Seventeen magazine for approximately half of a sample of vulnerable, adolescent girls. The girls believed they were receiving the magazine because they won a raffle in which all research participants were entered in appreciation for their willingness to participate in "other" research."

"I thought you might enjoy some while it is still hot." When you know you have done the right thing, does it move you toward depression or joy? The Continuum Model works because it reflects how our emotions work. In contrast, no number of pills could have made my client feel that good about herself or could have repaired that broken friendship. A Last Thought I have already emphasized that I cannot be comprehensive in discussing depression. However, I think you should be. Put yourself to the test. Evaluate yourself. Are you getting enough sleep? Are you a television junkie?"

"Far removed from the teapots of antiquity, this hot plant has burst upon the scene like a flash bomb. One horny goat weed formula has become one of the best-selling herbal supplements of all time. National magazine ads for the formula feature sultry women in skimpy attire lying across double-page spreads. Their eyes suggest mischief. The formula is boldly promoted for its lust-generating, performance-enhancing benefits. Horny goat weed—what an apt name! How did this sizzling fever for a previously obscure herb happen?"

"The most popular choice was bananas (42 percent), followed by spinach (27 percent), corn (12 percent), alfalfa sprouts (7 percent), peaches (5 percent), hot dogs (4 percent), and milk chocolate (3 percent). Only 7 percent of the participants chose one of the two foods that would in fact best support survival: hot dogs and milk chocolate. Evidently some of the wreckage of the lipid hypothesis has washed up on Rozin's desert island. "Fat," he writes, "seems to have assumed, even at low levels, the role of a toxin" in our dietary imaginations. I wonder why."

"Jeb's temperature regulation was also thrown off and he would feel too hot or cold with relatively slight variations in temperature. Heat intolerance in particular is a well-known effect of antipsychotic drugs, notoriously causing death by heat stroke in state hospitals and tenements that lack air-conditioning. Both hypotension and heat intolerance are caused by drug-induced dysfunction in the autonomic nervous system that governs physiological activities. He had stomachaches and took Tylenol for headaches. Jeb was not completely disabled by these symptoms."

"When we have a fear in our lives, even if we aren't consciously aware of precisely what it is, it creates an emotional bias in our bodies—an experience often described as a "charge" or a "hot button." This shows up in our lives as the strong ideas we have as to something's "rightness" or "wrongness," or the way that a situation "should" play out. Our charges and hot buttons are the promise that we'll create the relationships that show us which fear is asking to be healed. In other words, these charges will show us our fears—the greater one is, the deeper the fear. And they're seldom wrong."

"The body will attempt to cool down by beading with perspiration. hot weather, hot food or drink, stress, and other sources of heat can trigger flashes without warning. Although most women experience them, few—only one in four—find them uncomfortable enough to seek treatment. Some studies have shown that as little as 15 to 30 IU of vitamin E daily helps ease hot flashes, vaginal dryness, prevents hysterectomy and in some cases eliminates the need for estrogen shots. Many women who seek estrogen treatment for their hot flashes do find relief."

"For the previous 2 weeks, the patient had experienced spells of nausea and hot flushes; however, she had not needed to leave work early as she did in the past. Another 1000 meg of hydroxocobalamin was administered IM, and she was instructed to return more regularly for the injections. In a follow-up email on November 17, the patient reported the following: "I've been panic free since the weekend, which is nice. I haven't had hot flashes or heart beating fast in the morning either. I'm starting to think it [the B-12 shots] has a lot to do with how well I have been feeling!"

"A large dispenser of hot water, numerous cups, spoons, and small plates were brought to the table. "You should please try these, to see for yourself our quality" advised Liu, one of the managers. More than a dozen products of various sizes, concentrations, and forms were opened and prepared for my consideration. After 1 drank each one, I was expected to make comment, so I remarked on flavor or sweetness or some other attribute. As the next two hours wore on, I felt a deep, strong, very potent energy welling up inside me."

"The Evolution of the Elements Most cosmologists now believe that the Universe started somewhere between 8 and 15 billion years ago as an unimaginably hot and extremely compact region of pure energy. Intense internal pressures caused the Universe to expand very rapidly, creating the Big Bang. As the Universe expanded, it cooled and condensed into elementary particles: electrons, positrons, photons, and neutrinos. Cooling further, these particles began forming stable relationships with each other, giving birth to the very simplest of atoms: hydrogen and helium. Matter had been born."

"As previously explained, it is thought that quantum processes give way to classical ones in the hot, wet environment of the body because heat and chaotic influences from the environment lead to decoherence of the quantum signals. That Popp found coherent light in the body amounted to an overturning of some of the most deeply entrenched beliefs in physics and biology. What's so special about coherent light? Well, it means that individual photons somehow become connected and cooperative, working together to transmit information about the state of the system."

"Once you realize that touching a hot stove will burn you, you realize that the result of touching it again will produce the same experience. It is not the hot stove that burns you, but your decision to touch it. The illusion of separation is further perpetuated by our identification with the hot stove as the source of the burn, rather than with the decision-maker who chose to touch it. • Hidden Meaning of Behavior Likewise, blaming falsely assigns responsibility to a person, object, or circumstances for your experience of the encounter based upon your subjective interpretation."

"Nonetheless, as I dug into existing research on the herb, I was sure that it was one of the great hot plants. As a faculty member in the Medicinal Plant Program at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, I am accustomed to researching existing science on any particular plant. As the university's explorer in residence, I am keen to jump on a jet and head off to research any botanical that may benefit humanity."

"Yet the plant demonstrates sexual potency-enhancing properties nonetheless. hot plants come with the endorsement of millions of satisfied users. At one point Haren pushed me in the ribs, a big grin on his face. "What did I tell you? I said I can arrange everything. Now you see for yourself. You want experts and herbs, and knowledge, and to see it for yourself, and it is as easy as a snap of the fingers." He wagged an index finger in midair. Are you satisfied now?"

"The tastes classify the foods as follows: 1. hot foods are under the element of fire or oxidation and are controlled by the circulatory system. Pungent is hot; Sour is hotter; and Salt is the hottest. 2. Cold foods are under the element of water and are controlled by the lymphatic system, Bitter is cold; Astringent, colder; Sweet, the coldest. 3. Air foods, being projections of the element air, are neither hot nor cold, but they affect the cerebro-spinal system. These six are all necessary for the body in proper proportions."

"However, among a subset of those in the study, the younger women, aged fifty to fifty-four, who experienced moderate to severe symptoms, the drugs offered some benefit with hot flashes (hot flushes) and sleeping problems.43 Importantly, there is a strong body of good evidence that these drugs are very effective in reducing the frequency and severity of hot flashes (hot flushes) for many women."

"CONSIDER THE SYMPTONS The most common reason women seek HRT is to alleviate the physical symptoms of menopause, specifically hot flashes, and nobody disagrees that it works wonders on this front. Exercise is one alternative, although evidence for its effects on hot flashes and night sweats is inconclusive. Several large observational studies, one of which included sixty-six thousand menopausal Italian women, have shown that lower levels of exercise correlate to more vasomotor symptoms, but other studies have shown no association."

"Now it's so hot it feels like it is burning the skin off your hand. Still, you leave your hand in the bucket. The heat is almost unbearable. You can feel it crawling up your fingers, all the way back to your palm. Your palm is even starting to swell. You feel like your hand and fingers are cooking. You can feel your brow begin to perspire. Finally, you can't stand it anymore. You have to get your hand out of the hot water, and you yank it out. Now, stop imagining, open your eyes, and notice how different your hands feel. Each hand feels different, doesn't it?"
