"To quantify your stress level, first circle all the life events that you have experienced within the last twelve months. Next, add up the corresponding LCUs. Once you have your LCU total, find your stress-level category. Finally, read how your stress level is linked with hormone imbalance. Table 6-1."

"Most of us would agree that our greatest times of learning and growth have happened during times of hardship and pain rather than when life is rolling along smoothly. By sticking with this search for meaning, we open up a world of valuable material that leads to new information, insight, and profound understanding of ourselves. Not only do we learn about ourselves, we also receive physical benefits because learning and analysis keep our higher brain functions at full throttle. Phase Three: Recognizing Opportunity Phase Three involves a simple question with an abundance of answers."

"It was the gift of activity, of feeling they had something valuable to share, that they were worthy and important people in my life. The entire network of givers developed a glow about them. In the midst of my health drama, we were all having a lot of fun." Truth Truthfulness was one of Erica's biggest challenges. "In the beginning it was so hard for me to accept the truth, I couldn't even consider telling others about it," she says. "But within the first few days, I realized that there were too many important people who needed to know."

"With the team in place, she felt in control of her life. And it was this support group that helped her prepare for surgery and manage her recovery. After surgery, the doctors told Erica that with both chemotherapy and radiation there was a 90 percent chance of the tumor not returning. Once again she took responsibility for creating her best outcome. "I sought out other women who'd had breast cancer and asked for their help. Some of them I'd never met before, but I was always received with eagerness and compassion. People are really wonderful."

"By the next morning, Erica arrived at a set of ongoing Intentions: "This is my only life, it was being threatened, and I felt compelled to live it to the hilt!" she says. "Rather than feeling different and flawed, my Intention was to do everything I could to feel connected to my immediate family and to the human family. We're all mortal. I didn't want to flip out, so I also intended to be patient and thoughtful in dealing with every aspect of this illness." And Erica did have to be patient. A week later the biopsy results revealed both good and bad news."

"Organic and nutritious foods make a meaningful impact on children's health that lasts throughout life. JORGE VALENZUELA, SAVE THE CHILDREN There is a growing awareness in Spanish-speaking communities of the importance of prudent nutrition and of the disastrous Type-2 diabetes. I am working with John David Arnold, PhD, president of the League of United Latin American Countries (LULAC) and with Jorge Valenzuela, head of Save the Children and Mexico Executive Director, FIA, on these issues."

"What are life stressors? The list of stressors typically cited by patients include the following: daily time-management issues, juggling work and family, being laid off or fired, experiencing major money worries, losing a parent, going through a divorce, and dealing with difficult infants, angry teenagers, or aging parents. Can you identify? How does stress impact hormone levels? When the brain perceives some form of danger, it signals the adrenal glands to pump out more adrenaline, often referred to as the "fight-or-flight" hormone."

"Consciously Take Time To De-Stress Exercise Laugh Sleep APPENDIX B How to Reduce the Estrogens in Your Environment he following list can help you to take action to reduce the effect of environmental estrogens in your life: • Because some plastics shed xenohormones when heated, assume that they all do, and protect yourself accordingly. Don't drink hot beverages from plastic cups and don't drink water from a plastic bottle that has been left in the sun or in a hot car. • Don't microwave your food or drinks in plastic containers; avoid using plastic wrap to cover food in the microwave."

"Your story requests will have unlocked a veritable river of appreciation from the significant people in your life. Despite your extended contact with these people, their stories of why and how much they appreciate you have likely gone unspoken. Sad to say, it's not normal for us to speak frankly and openly about the ways we love and appreciate one another. Yet gaining access to these reflections ignites positivity. You'll feel grateful to the people who sent you stories, more connected to them. You can take pride in the ways you've made a difference."

"Once you've learned your strengths, the hard part follows: redesign your job and life so you can use them every day. Which aspects of your job or daily activities draw on your strengths? Which aspects squelch them? How might you devote more of your energy toward doing what you do best? What changes do you need to make to truly use your strengths each day? Tool 8.

"With more positivity, we can create both the life we want and a world worth leaving to our children. What 7s Positivity? . Know that joy is rarer, more difficult, and more beautiful than sadness. Once you make this all-important discovery, you must embrace joy as a moral obligation. —Andre Gide I—i or most of us, joy is all too rare—perhaps not literally rarer than p sadness, but still too rare to tip the scales toward flourishing. J Having read the headlines about positivity, it's time to dive more deeply into joy."

"The brain appeared to revise itself throughout life, depending on the nature of its thoughts. Certain sustained thoughts produced measurable physical differences and changed its structure. Form followed function; consciousness helped to form the brain. Besides speeding up, brain waves also synchronize during meditation and healing."

"It was even glorified in a best-selling book, The Secret life of Plants.5 But among the mainstream scientific community, his research was disparaged as ludicrous, largely because he was not a traditional scientist, and he was ridiculed for what became known as "the Backster Effect." In 1975, Esquire magazine even awarded him one of its 100 Dubious Achievement Awards: "Scientist claims yogurt talks to itself."

"Isn't it also enjoying a life as pain-free and disease-free as possible? That is a truly desirable manner of living. Sometimes it seems that our joyous holiday or regular dinner conversations revolve around nagging health ailments that constantly interfere with living. George now has gout, Grandma has diabetes, Suzy has irritable bowel syndrome, and your sister complains that she can't lose those last ten pounds (well, maybe twenty), even on the latest deprivation diet."

"Finally, plastic products are part of almost every person's daily life, and many of them give off xenoestrogens when heated, whether purposely in a microwave oven or accidentally in a hot car. Petrochemicals and solvents. Many general hygiene products—such as skin cream, lotion, soap, shampoo, perfume, hair spray, and room deodorizers—contain petrochemicals. These compounds often have chemical structures similar to estrogen and therefore act like estrogen when introduced into the body."

"Refrigerated shelf life is approximately 30 days. PREPARATION AND SERVING SUGGESTIONS: • Wasabi is prepared by grating the fresh rhizome against a rough surface. Some Japanese sushi chefs will only use a sharkskin grater. Grate in a circular motion. • After grating, chop fresh wasabi with the backside of a knife. This will release more of the flavor. • Compress the fresh wasabi into a ball and let stand for five to ten minutes at room temperature so that the sweetness and heat have time to develop."

"The answers would in turn address a longstanding debate in neuroscience: is neural structure basically hard-wired from youth or plastic—changeable—depending on the nature of a person's thoughts through life? For me, the most intriguing question about this research on focused attention was the means by which a Buddhist monk could turn himself into a human boiler, and how these means compared with techniques and practices of other ancient traditions."

"Smith states that "Rethinking life and Death can fairly be called the Mein Kampf of the euthanasia movement, in that it drops many of the euphemisms common to pro-euthanasia writing and acknowledges euthanasia for what it is: killing."29 I agree. Not the least of Singer's failings as moral philosopher is his ignorance or neglect of writers whose works most effectively refute his views. This is particularly striking in connection with the notion of suffering and the alleged moral imperative to avoid it, which plays such a central role in the calculus of utilitarianism."

"It's easy to say, "Reduce the amount of stress in your life and you'll be healthier." While this is generally a true statement, it's too broad. Instead, "select" your stressors; cultivate the beneficial ones and eliminate the unbeneficial. All stressors can be classified into one or more of three categories: uncomplementary, complementary, and production. It is possible to greatly reduce stress and its debilitating effects without reducing productivity; in fact, productivity will improve if the right stressors are removed."

"The high level of processing they undergo ensures that their shelf life is dramatically extended, but this is accompanied by a marked decline in nutritional quality. These foods are certainly not part of a sustainable, high-energy diet. While convenient, many energy bars offer nothing more nutritional than what candy bars offer. High in calories supplied from adrenal-fatiguing refined sources, most energy bars provide energy for the short term (anything with calories will) but, after a person consumes them for several months, will bring about fatigue."

"In fact, diabetes arises from diverse causes—many that are indeed by-products of modern life. In this book we will provide practical and authoritative knowledge concerning these many factors leading to diabetes. In addition, we will carefully outline the steps you can take to prevent this devastating disease even if your family history indicates that you are at risk."

"While diabetes is often a challenging disease, the truth is that we actually get very excited when a new patient is a diabetic because we know that our recommendations will dramatically impact the quality of his or her life. You can imagine how wonderful that feels. This controlled euphoria is the motivation for many doctors to work so hard for their patients. We are no different. Some Words of Caution Although this book discusses numerous natural medicines and approaches, it is not intended as a substitute for appropriate medical care."

"LDL cholesterol also carries the coenzyme Q10, a naturally produced antioxidant that is vital for sustaining life. We tend to hear a lot about the dangers of high cholesterol, but I daresay most Americans don't know that very low cholesterol is unsafe, too. When people's LDL cholesterol falls too low—less than 70mg/dL— they may develop transient global amnesia, meaning that they forget who they are. Years ago, in the early 1980s, when cholesterol-lowering drugs first hit the mass market, studies found an increase in suicides, homicides, and automobile accidents."

"Essentially, insulin helps regulate your body's blood sugar level by moving the excess glucose out of your bloodstream and into your cells, thereby lowering your blood sugar and making the glucose available to fuel your body's functions and the activities of daily life. So after you mindlessly guzzle that soft drink and scarf those cookies, your blood sugar shoots up. And then, as Dr. Willett explains in Eat, Drink, and Be Healthy, "[Sjwift, high spikes in blood sugar are followed by similar surges in insulin."

"You can live with this healthy way of eating for the rest of your life," adds Heimowitz, who has followed "an Atkins carb-watching approach" for 20 years, hoping to avert the fate of her obese, diabetic parents, who both died at an early age. In addition to drawing attention to perils of quickie carbs, Dr. Atkins pointed out the pivotal role that hormones play in weight loss, and his work paved the way for other diets that stress carb cutting."
