"When there is greater connection, our relationships will improve; there might be less divorce as each of us will see reality and stop projecting our needs onto others. We won't marry for the wrong reasons, because we will be more perceptive about our needs. To be perceptive means to integrate our feelings and to be in touch with our intuitive self. Good connections to the right prefrontal area of our memories helps us become well informed about our inner life so that as we age, we won't be surprised if we develop a bleeding ulcer or fall into a depression."

"USDA researchers recently found that breeding to "improve" wheat varieties over the past 13 0 years (a period during which yields of grain per acre tripled) had reduced levels of iron by 28 percent and zinc and selenium by roughly a third. Similarly, milk from modern Holstein cows (in which breeders have managed to more than triple daily yield since 1950) has considerably less butterfat and other nutrients than that from older, less "improved" varieties like Jersey, Guernsey, and Brown Swiss."

"Over time, people will get used to eating this way, and our health will improve as we gradually adjust to the new food environment. Also, as nutritional science improves, we should be able to ameliorate the worst effects of this diet. Already food scientists are figuring out ways to microencapsulate omega-3s and þSeveral studies have found that when industry funds nutrition research, the conclusions are more likely to produce findings favorable to that industry's products."

"Your ability to appreciate natural flavors will improve because you are losing your dependence on salt and sugar. More beans and nuts are added to your diet to replace animal products. It will become obvious that eating for great health has little to do with portion control and much more to do with content control. Your nutrition makeover will be well underway by the time you arrive at Phase Three. More unhealthy foods are eliminated, sodium levels continue to decrease, and your diet becomes even more nutrient rich."

"How to improve Your Test Results The good news is that you can reduce your risk of future complications by identifying health problems early on and by making lifestyle modifications and other steps as outlined in detail in the upcoming chapters. It doesn't matter whether your goal is to prevent or reverse prediabetes or metabolic syndrome or to reduce the impact of diabetic complications if you already have the disease; as you bring your test values into the healthy range, you can slow or eliminate progression of disease and disease-related complications."

"In Minneapolis, Sencer and her coworkers use a variety of mind-body therapies to improve the quality of life of kids with cancer, including hypnosis, massage, acupuncture, and biofeedback. "Pediatric medicine has always been more holistic than adult medicine," Sencer told me. "The higher up we get on the specialty food chain in adult medicine, the more we lose touch with the big picture." In other areas, too, green medicine has enjoyed a growing popularity in the field of pediatrics. At Hackensack, with the help of dedicated practitioners like Dr."

"And as always, work to improve your indoor air quality by keeping the outdoor air circulating through your house. Filter your water. We're exposed to tap water through so many different channels: juices and hot beverages, vegetables, the bath or shower, in the swimming pool, or even in the water you use to prepare food. Make sure that all of these sources are safe in your home—you might be in for an unpleasant surprise."

"We have used it and seen patients improve and arterial calcium scores fall dramatically. This is a new CVD therapy that needs further refinement, but pilot studies in the United States and around the world have been positive. Unfortunately, no reliable test exists at the current time to determine the presence of nanobacteria in the body. That will come as well. Treatment involves the use of EDTA, a synthetic amino acid that breaks down the calcific nanobacteria shell, along with the antibiotic tetracycline."

"Given that the core problems of type 2 diabetes involve beta-cell dysfunction and insulin resistance, we recommend new technology in this situation (when drugs are needed): exciting new drug therapies that improve beta-cell function in a glucose-dependent fashion, which we discuss in more detail in chapter 10. Lipid Test This test helps gauge your risk of metabolic syndrome, insulin resistance, and heart disease. Like the fasting plasma glucose test, you need to fast for ten to twelve hours before giving a blood sample for this test."

"Prebiotics selectively stimulate the growth the Western diet does not in-and activity of one or a limited number of dude sufficient prebiotics to good bacteria in the colon and thus improve , ? f, , w , r properly support our probiotthe hosts health. r r ' rr r ic flora. Our diet is about two to three times too low in prebiotics. It has been estimated that North Americans eat about 1 to 4 grams of prebiotics (e.g., inulin and other oligosaccharides) daily, while Europeans consume 3 to 10 grams per day. Humans should consume at least 4 grams of prebiotics each day."

"If we could improve one thing across the board," she went on, "I'd pick nutrition. Nutrition is really our biggest problem in this country." She said point blank that "the fact that most doctors don't talk about nutrition with their patients is sinful." As green pediatricians like Sencer become more common, we're hoping to see more discussions along these lines—discussions about nutrition and lifestyle that can make a crucial difference in the future health of a child."

"As your child begins to improve, I believe that your family will embrace this program of supplementation therapy. Getting children to take supplements can present some challenges, but most parents can find a way to make this happen, because supplements typically trigger profound, lasting, positive changes. As these positive changes accumulate, motivation will build. Now we move on to the third component of the Healing Program: detoxification."

"The biomedical treatment heals the brain's hardware, so to speak, while the behavioral therapies improve its software, or thinking processes. Both must be addressed. By the time that some kids' brains start to heal, they are years behind in social and intellectual development, and they need help to catch up. In many cases, their hardwiring is so damaged that they even need to forge whole new neuronal pathways-new ways of solving old problems. In a way, they're rather like some stroke victims—still capable of learning, but not in the damaged portions of their brains."

"His illness wasn't strictly a matter of mercury poisoning from vaccinations, because he had begun to improve before he'd had time to eliminate much mercury. Autism is so baffling. It's no wonder that most doctors have found it so difficult to treat. Elizabeth, though, at this third appointment, was bright with hope. "He's not melting down so much," she said, stroking Kyle's golden helmet of hair as he squirmed in his chair. "He's talking better. His mood's better. I feel like his true personality is finally starting to shine through."

"On the Healing Program, most asthma patients improve considerably, and many achieve reversal of the condition. A multifaceted program is the kind of help patients need. Unfortunately, though, it's not the kind of help they usually get. Chicago, Illinois Priya, in fifth grade now, had to stay away from school, and was tutored at home, as Anju searched laboriously for treatments that could help her. At one point, Anju went to a doctor who recommended a special nutritional formula designed to promote growth and development."

"Many international research organizations work to improve probiotic research. • Government food and supplement agencies ensure probiotic products are safe. • Infants, healthy adults and the elderly have reported no adverse events from probiotics. • Insufficient evidence is available to recommend probiotics to pregnant or lactating women. • Probiotic use may pose some risk for immunocompromised individuals • Prebiotics appear safe for all. Probiotics are capable of enormous positive health effects on the human body."

"Eliminating toxic household cleaners can greatly improve your home's indoor air quality, which has become a major health issue in recent years. Indoor air pollution—which can be two to five times worse than outdoor air pollution—has contributed to a rise in childhood respiratory disorders, including asthma and allergies. In fact, for the past seven years, the EPA has ranked indoor air pollution as one of the top five risks to human health. And according to the World Health Organization, approximately 30 percent of buildings have serious indoor-air quality issues."

"It is likely that other probiotic supplements can help improve lactose intolerance symptoms. VSL#3 is a blend of probiotics produced by Seaford Pharmaceuticals in Ontario, Canada. It has been used in a number of clinical trials. Some studies noted in other chapters of this book have found this supplement has positive results on health; however, VSL#3 does not appear to assist in lactose intolerance. In a clinical study, VSL#3 was given to 10 volunteers for one or four days. Two weeks later, a lactose challenge was carried out by the volunteers."

"Research suggests that increased testosterone and DHEA seems to be associated with lowered insulin in men, which leaves us open to the idea that adding testosterone to men with Syndrome X or Type-2 diabetes, or obese middle-aged men, which is a tipoff of Syndrome X, may improve insulin sensitivity.115'116 Living Enzymes Enzymes are substances that make life possible. No mineral, vitamin, or hormone can do any work without enzymes. They are the manual workers that build the body from proteins, carbohydrates, and fats."

"Refer to chapter 12 for our specific strategies on how to improve your test scores. These tests are based on blood draws your doctor can order from medical laboratories. Some are covered by insurance and some aren't. Check with your doctor's insurance specialist or with your insurance carrier. Keep in mind that normal ranges may vary from laboratory to laboratory and typically reflect the range of values found in 95 percent of Americans, most of whom will eventually die from CVD or cancer. We want better for you."

"Recently, a dextrose compound called cyclodextrin has been complexed with CoQ 10 to improve the absorption of the powder-in-capsule supplements. Form is a principal consideration when reading the science or deciding which supplement to choose. Form determines dosage. The medical literature contains multiple studies showing the positive effects of CoQIO supplementation for compromised cardiac patients. The usual recommended dosage: 100 to 200 mg daily. But, as the case of Lucy clearly teaches us, some patients may not respond to such doses. They need more."

"We would first strive to improve endothelial health with supplements rather than with ACE inhibitors. However, ACE inhibitors have a positive benefit-to-risk ratio and will result in fewer cardiovascular emergencies. These drugs are good choices by your doctor. The major downside is a nonthreatening and annoying dry cough, and it happens fairly frequently. It is what makes some people want to stop the drug. Angiotensin Receptor Blockers If a patient complains about the cough while taking an ACE inhibitor, we would switch him or her to an angiotensin receptor blocker (ARB)."

"Or did you take lessons and improve? What does the way you handled your failure tell you? Have you avoided putting yourself forward in order to avoid the possibility of looking stupid again in public? What's the worst that might happen if you did look stupid? What do you fear?

"Talk Back to Harriet As you discover ways to improve your relationships, here are some of the things that Harriet may say about the things you are thinking of trying. Fd like to share them with you so that when Harriet starts suggesting them, you'll already be prepared with responses. First, when you think that having a dialogue with a loved one is going to help, Harriet will warn you to be careful. She'll tell you that you might hear something about yourself that you can't quite handle. What will you tell her?"

"Keith Ellis, Bootstraps In any relationship that you want to improve, you have to start with the premise that you can only change yourself, and in so doing change the dynamic of the relationship. Only then is there a chance that your partner may change in exactly the way you want in response. Most people don't understand this, even though they have heard it a thousand times. Instead we ask, beg, demand that our partner change to please us. Simply put, it won't work."

"There are four groups of foods that can improve how you break down estrogen: (1) cruciferous vegetables (I3C foods); (2) phytoestrogens, of which there are three types—isoflavones (such as soy), lignans (or flax meal), and coumestans (found in legumes); (3) phytosterols; and (4) antioxidant-rich foods. Cruciferous Vegetables Your mother always told you to eat your Brussels sprouts and broccoli, but she probably didn't really know why. Cruciferous vegetables are medicinal and can alter how estrogen is broken down and reduce your chances of developing breast cancer."

"Flax meal (ground flaxseeds) is especially good for constipation and helps improve estrogen metabolism. One to two tablespoons daily is the recommended dose. Take more (two to four tablespoons) if you are constipated. • Use the supplement calcium-d-glucarate (1,500 to 3,000 mg/day), particularly if your glucuronidase is high. You can measure glucuronidase levels in your stools with specialty lab testing. • Basic herbs, such as pumpkin seeds, berberine, garlic, or caprylic acid, can clear up may bowel problems. Also, products with plant tannins can kill many unwanted bowel bacteria and yeast."

"You'll know it's right if your bowels improve. Chew your food well. This may sound so simple, but most people do not take the time to chew properly. Much digestion occurs in your mouth, and if foods are not well broken down, they can cause the gut to become rancid and fermented and you can become bloated with an overgrowth of bad bacteria. Food leaving your mouth should be pastelike. • Use a probiotic, that is, living friendly bacteria such as acidophilus, bifidobacteria, or lactobacillus. This is particularly important if you have been on antibiotics."
