"Each year, at least 400,000 cases of illness can be attributed to contaminated water. With all due respect for the great job that all of the water departments in all of the states and cities do, you still don't want to be drinking tap water. It may not kill you immediately, but as sure as the sun rises in the morning, it will compromise your health over time. The bottom line is that you need to drink filtered (or distilled water). Tap water, well water, and bottled water1 are all suspect. Chlorine Chlorine is the primary disinfectant used to purify drinking water."

"Eventually, you need to correct the problem on multiple levels, or face long term degenerative illness. • You have to do a general cleaning of the blood. • You have to remove all of the heavy metals and excess cholesterol. • You have to address the issue of blood pH. • You have to eat the right kinds of food and supplements so that your body can begin producing, once again, healthy blood. Cleansing the Blood There is no secret as to which herbs cleanse the blood. Despite what medical doctors may think, the efficacy of these hetbs has been proven over several hundred years."

"Over time we so abuse it and so overtax it that illness is the inevitable result. Our blood is filled with many impurities including everything from an overabundance of artificial fats to toxic heavy metals. These must be removed for optimum health. 12. The Immune System. In many ways, your immune system is the most awesome system in your body, easily rivaling your brain in terms of complexity, subtlety, and self-awareness. And yet, we seem to do everything in our power to destroy it. For example, just one can of soda pop can depress your immune system by some 50% for as long as six hours."

"Of course, if someone is in an advanced state of illness, they better clean up their act totally, and eat no meat and no cooked food. In fact, ideally, they should go on a raw juice fast"—at least, until they get well. Once you're well, you can bake up a potato, or grill yourself a nice piece of organic beef (if that's your bent). • The bottom line is that the worse you eat, the more often you will need to cleanse and detox and make use of supplements. So After All That, What Do I Eat? At one time, I was totally vegetarian, primarily for ethical reasons."

"The most common are certain foods; drugs, especially penicillin; viral infections, chronic illness such as lupus and thyroid disease; and sometimes environmental stimuli such as the sun and exercise. Different chemicals and food additives can also trigger an episode. Stress is a big trigger of urticaria and treatment involves modifying stress response through meditation, breathing, and exercise. Creative visualization techniques can also be helpful."

"But, as it is well-documented by the personal honor stories, Prozac and the other antidepressants in the SSRI class of drugs have been prescribed "off-label" (not approved by the FDA for effectiveness and safety in a particular population) to the pediatric population for more than a decade and for an ever-increasing number of psychiatric diagnoses other than the alleged mental illness of depression."

"The Myth of Mental Illness: Foundations of a Theoiy of Personal Conduct, exposing the fraud of modern-day psychiatry. While it has been more than 40 years since his classic work was first published, his insight remains timely. Dr. Szasz explains the difficulty the psychiatric community faces in order to gain legitimacy within the medical community. "

"In other words, the DSM-IV is the result of "consensus" or agreement about the mental illness diagnosis. The psychiatric diagnosis or mental disorder labels found in the manual are not based in science insomuch as there is no citation provided in the manual about any objective, confirmable abnormality in the brain to support a single psychiatric mental disorder. Rather, subjective criteria decided on by "consensus" are provided as a kind of checklist to assist the clinician in pinpointing the alleged mental disorder."

"And like the APA and NIMH, Lilly also cannot support depression being a brain disease but, rather, reports that it may be due to "severe psychological stress, a physical illness or condition, medications and alcohol or drug abuse." Lilly also adds that "sometimes depression appears to have no trigger." But Lilly's crescendo is the well-known but unproven "chemical imbalance" theory. The makers of Prozac state: "While depression is not fully understood, a growing amount of evidence supports the view that people with depression may have an imbalance of the brain's neurotransmitters..."

"If hypothyroidism is present: Hypothyroidism is another illness that can include among its symptoms generalized sensitivity of the teeth, although this is an unusual cause of dental pain. To treat sensitive teeth, treatment of the thyroid hormone deficiency is needed. Treating children: Normal growth and development in children includes a stage of teeth eruption, which causes pain. This can be treated with symptomatic pain relievers, such as children's Tylenol® or Motrin®."

"If hiccups are one symptom of an underlying condition, consult a doctor of Chinese medicine about formulas that can help treat the primary illness. 420 Herbs: For each formula, mix the herbs in a ceramic or glass pot. Add 3 cups of water, bring the mixture to the boil, and let it simmer for 30 minutes. The herbs listed are available from Chinese herbalists or online."

"Although it usually occurs by itself, cradle cap can accompany other medical conditions, such as zinc deficiency, vitamin B deficiency, or any illness that lowers the number or function of the cells that fight infection. Non-medicated shampoo: Cradle cap usually resolves itself within one to eight months. The first choice for treatment is a mild, non-medicated shampoo for scale removal. Tar-based or anti-seborrheic shampoos should not be used on infants as they are too harsh. Using GENTLE friction on the skin to remove the oily scales is essential."

"Although you may think that the amount of chemical contaminant you bring home on your clothes (or skin) is small, over time this can add up to a significant exposure that could lead to a serious illness. ical hazards, such as replacing toxic chemicals with less harmful substances, improving local exhaust ventilation, using personal protective equipment such as gloves, and using proper protective procedures for handling chemicals."

"NUTRITION AND ENVIRONMENTAL ILLNESS Introduction to Environmental illness Today a whole new type of illness plagues modern society, promising to do even greater damage in the years ahead. The title commonly given this category of sickness is environmental illness (EI). Because the primary cause has been found to be chemical pollutants in the air one breathes and the water one drinks, the illness is sometimes also referred to as multiple chemical sensitivities (MCS). EI is actually a form of allergy—an allergy to this century and beyond."

"Also, if you continue to eat unhealthy foods in excess, you weaken your immune system no matter how much you exercise, and so the risk of illness increases, illness makes exercise difficult, and anytime the routine slackens, the weight returns. To lose weight for life, you need to conquer food addiction, not merely run around it. 1. I believe that using exercise on a routine basis to compensate for overeating will no longer work for me. 2. I still want to be able to overeat and use exercise to compensate for it."

"Less than 5 percent of all patients examined have had a primary psychiatric or social cause for their illness" Added to this is evidence for further abnormalities, such as widespread immune system damage. This diversity of damage readily accounts for the other numerous and seemingly disjointed symptoms commonly accompanying CFS. This injury appears to be caused by many factors, including infection (viral, fungal, and bacterial), various different mineral and vitamin deficiencies, and allergies or sensitivities to foods, pollutants, animal products, plant products, and chemicals."

"This pesticide has put thousands of workers at risk of serious illness every year," says Erik Nicholson of the United Farmworkers of America. In 2006, the Environmental Protection Agency announced that it would try to phase out the use of AZM by 2010. Others remain at large. Dieldrin is such a persistent pesticide that some scientists predict it will still exist in the environment when humans are extinct. Methyl bromide causes respiratory illnesses, convulsions and acute mania, alongside intensely depleting ozone levels, yet U.S."

"However, the agency may disclose CBI in limited circumstances, such as when necessary to treat illness or injury or to prevent imminent harm to people, property, or the environment. Even then, release of the information must often be limited to certain Chemical-Free Pest Control Tips Remove all food waste from the kitchen every night to discourage potential pests from making your home theirs. There are also many natural products you can make at home or get at any health food store to rid your kitchen and home of most bugs and pests."

"Today we are witnessing another medical anomaly—a unique pattern of illness involving chemically exposed people who subsequently report multisystem symptoms and new-onset chemical and food intolerances. These intolerances may be the hallmark for a new disease process, just as fever is a hallmark for infection."

"I was diagnosed with this illness about nine years ago when I was 33 years old, but my doctor said that probably I had the illness several years before that. It is a rare illness usually occurring in much older people. People of my age usually do not have this illness. Nobody knows what causes this illness. I was told perhaps stress has something to do with it. Also, I used to be a security guard for several years and I worked in factories and industrial sites and perhaps I was exposed to some chemicals or toxic materials. Over the years my condition seemed to get slightly worse."

"Wjlth rising MSG-induced asthma, migraine headaches, ADD, childhood disorders, neurodegenerative diseases, and possibly even cancer, we are witnessing enormous human illness caused by this drug. Is it worth it? Can society continue to pay for it? Perhaps litigation similar to the tobacco lawsuits will start to result in payment for the enormous; costs of MSG-induced illness and death. There are similarities to asbestos, to lead-based paints, to mercury contaminations, and even to silicone breast implants."

"One problem is that when people get sick they may change the way they eat, so the diet they report may not be the diet responsible for their illness. Another problem is that these patients will typically report eating large amounts of whatever the evil nutrient of the moment is. These people read the newspaper too; it's only natural to search for the causes of one's misfortune and, perhaps, to link one's illness to one's behavior."

"It is critically important for people with a physical illness to be able to access the content of their thought at all levels (conscious, subconscious, and super-conscious) as a means to healing. In the chapters that follow, I will teach you how to feel the energies in your body and use deep levels of awareness to access your thoughts so you can direct those energies, shift what is going on in your bodily tissues, and achieve self-healing."

"But rates of illness had little to do with rates of medical care in Palm Springs and Birmingham, or with how much Medicare spent. The conclusion was inescapable: Americans were being subjected to unnecessary medicine in many parts of the country—and paying for it in more ways than one. Moose hunting Wennberg's office is still located in Strasenburgh Hall, the same building he has occupied since arriving at Dartmouth three decades ago, and which now houses the Center for the Evaluative Clinical Sciences, the team of nearly sixty researchers and staff who have gathered at Dartmouth."

"Not all of the blame for our national obsession with illness can be laid at the feet of pharmaceutical marketers. Sometime in the late twentieth century, the medical profession and patient advocacy groups came to the conclusion that the best way to keep people healthy was to scare them into the doctor's office, where they could be screened for diseases they didn't even suspect they had. These days, it goes almost without saying that prevention is the path toward better health. "

"In case after case, working with thousands of people from all walks of life who suffered from every kind of illness, I applied the knowledge and methods I'll show you in this book with staggering effect—rapid, significant, measurable gains in physical health and wellbeing, sometimes instantaneous and permanent after only one session. By the late 1980s, I saw what the methods could do for people and realized their awesome implications for improving human wellbeing on a global scale."

"This system worked perfectly well when most people died of acute injury or short-term illness. Today, however, most of us live long enough to develop one or more chronic conditions, which we often suffer from for many years. Treating diabetes and heart disease requires a very different strategy from nursing an elderly patient through a bout of pneumonia. Yet, our entire system is still structured around the outmoded model of acute care."

"Although they sound similar, this group of diseases shouldn't be (and usually isn't) confused with IBS. One illness that can mimic IBS is called gluten enteropathy, or celiac disease. This is a genetically related autoimmune disease in which your gut becomes allergic to wheat products and cannot absorb food materials normally. In its worst form, celiac disease can produce weight loss with resulting malnutrition, vitamin deficiencies, and diarrhea. But occasionally none of these symptoms exist, and people may instead have fatigue, achy joints, or symptoms suggestive of IBS."
