"Photosensitivity Most PWCs are sensitive to light. Many avoid bright sunlight, wear dark sunglasses outdoors, and keep indoor lighting dim. Many are especially sensitive to fluorescent lighting, describing it as harsh, eerie, and disturbing. Fluorescent light sensitivity may be associated with balance disorders. Symptoms associated with exposure to bright light include dizziness and other equilibrium problems, nausea, sensory "overload," and headache. One patient reports feeling "blinded" by bright sunlight, needing to cling to a friend's arm for support."

"However, new research points to UVA as a cancer-causing light as well. The damage caused by ultraviolet light may happen years before a cancer develops. As such, avoiding too much sunlight is highly recommended. Who is most at risk? There are several factors that affect your risk from sun exposure, including how much time you spend outdoors, your natural skin color and use of sunbeds. Risk factors for skin cancer include: • spending time outdoors • using sunbeds • having fair skin, hair or eyes. As skin cancer develops slowly, you are more likely to develop it the older you become."

"If you think of the colors of the rainbow as different nutrients or vitamins, then natural sunlight combines all of those colors into one multi-colored white light and projects that healing white light all the way through space to arrive on planet earth, where it can touch your skin and have a powerful healing effect. Natural sunlight is, I believe, absolutely essential for optimum human health."

"Here are some other suggestions: • Try to get at least half an hour of natural outdoor light each day. • Install a skylight. • Move closer to the Equator (couldn't resist!). • Investigate light therapy, a special device with high-intensity light that has been found to be extremely effective in treating Seasonal Affective Disorder, reducing depression, and tempering premenstrual and menopausal tension. Talk to your doctor about it. An understandable yearly pattern pertains to mood changes and food cravings as the daylight hours decline in the winter months."

"Her drawing was a beautiful crystal vase filled with golden light. It had a lovely curved form that was very feminine in appearance. It also had a flat base so that it could stand very solidly and firmly without wobbling. The vase filled the paper from top to bottom. When she held her drawing in front of her as she stood in the sunlight, it was as if the rays of the sun filled her vase with new light and energy. She absorbed the sun's warmth, light, and energy as she felt her own strength and power as a woman. Her face lit up and radiated with the warmth, light, and energy of her own drawing."

"The light box is a specially bright lamp that casts a light which approximates sunlight. Sometimes this treatment is coupled with other methods of treatment similar to those for other depressive disorders. These special light boxes can be purchased from several different companies (see Resources). Note that if your doctor prescribes light therapy, your insurance may pay for it. Treatment Options for Psychological Symptoms Treatment should be selected according to the individual needs and preferences of the patient."

"My chest was the glass-walled lens through which my heart was generating light and pure energy outward in all directions. There I sat, with the upper portion of my torso beaming out feelings of warmth and passion. Since I was at the center of this illumination, the lightlike emanations continued outward toward infinity in all directions. This light was not the same sort of stuff that comes out of GE light bulbs. Rather, it was a light composed of the feelings and appreciations that filtered up through my spine and, coming to a focus in my chest, seemed to pour out unboundedly from me."

"Its droppings, however, are light enough to float into the air and be inhaled, and it is these that set off the allergic reaction. It is estimated that up to 75 per cent of all asthmatics may be allergic to the dust mite. Despite its name, the dust mite does not live in dust, but loves furnishings such as mattresses, carpets, cushions, pillows and quilts. If you are susceptible to dust mite, be wary of sitting for long times on old couches: these can be dust mite havens. Populations of millions can live in a mattress and many asthmatics find their asthma is worst at night."

"A weakened muscle can indicate an energy level problem in its associated organ. A light fingertip massage on pressure points of the body and scalp will revitalise any pinpointed trouble spots. Kinesiologists believe that allergic reactions to nutrients and chemicals affect, among other things, the way our muscles work and their response to testing."

"Although these results are statistically significant, they are along the lines of being able to name eleven animals instead of ten; in other words, not that meaningful in light of the severe side effects that have to be endured and the fact that these drugs have no effect on the trajectory of the disease. RIVASTIGMINE Another drug in this class is rivastigmine (Exelon), which inhibits both acetylcholinesterase and butyrylcholinesterase enzymes."

"These apply light pressure to the lung and heart points in the ear. The earrings are only worn for 20?0 minutes a day, have no known side effects and their supporters believe they assist stress, compulsive eating behaviour, insomnia, excessive smoking and 'nerves'. Activating pressure points in the cheek, nose and on parts of the chest, back and shoulders can often help relieve asthma and act as a preventive measure."

"Since I was at the center of this illumination, the lightlike emanations continued outward toward infinity in all directions. This light was not the same sort of stuff that comes out of GE light bulbs. Rather, it was a light composed of the feelings and appreciations that filtered up through my spine and, coming to a focus in my chest, seemed to pour out unboundedly from me. I can't explain what I felt like as this image continued to hold me, but I knew that these feelings of "love" were not attached to any one person or thing or to any one place."

"Symptoms include heavy mucoid secretion and discharges, oozing skin—typical western diagnosis might include herpes zoster, other viral infections Therapies herbal treatments, as their effects are produced through digestion (and thus move from interior to exterior) Characteristic illness Pernicious influence masculine, heavens light, hot, dry the upper parts and back, the outer parts (e.g."

"It keeps us in the dark, unable to see the light of true reality. To disconnect from the ego's control, we have to be willing to get off the rollercoaster; we have to give up the thoughts that constantly feed our pain-bodies with impulsive, reactive desires. We must be willing to give up our grievances and practice true forgiveness. We have to learn to be in the present moment. Actually, just learning about what the ego is and how it operates puts the odds on our side; we are already on the road to success because our consciousness is being raised. Becoming aware is always the first step."
- Ron Garner, Conscious Health: A Complete Guide to Wellness Through Natural Means (Get the book.)

"At age 62,1 finally began to see the light and said, "That's enough." I opened my eyes and "saw." I understood. I finally stopped being controlled by my ego and moved into spirit. If you haven't already done this, at what age will you say, "Enough already. I'm moving on to claim my freedom to be who I am inside. I am taking my power and my peace back." It is always your choice and only your choice. God gave us free will to be or not be whoever we decide at each moment. He allows us to create our own movies. Nobody else can make the choices for us."

"It is the biophotonic light in the chromosomes of our cells that provides the silent language of the dna. Further, it is minerals in cells that enable memory inside dna to be retained, just as minerals on an audiotape allow the recording and retaining of sound. In order for rejuvenation and longevity to manifest in a body, above all, there must be an increase in biophoton emissions. In other words, there must be an increase in the brightness of the telomeres (chromosomal tips)."

"Sleep studies show that when people are removed from artificial light, they tend to fall asleep when it gets dark, sleep for three or four hours, wake up in the middle of the night at some random time, lie awake for several hours, then fall asleep again for three to four hours. Studies in primitive hunter-gatherer societies show that these people sleep in the same way. One hypothesis is that this has adaptive value, since if one of the clan is always awake at some particular time during the night, he or she is more likely to detect predators and wake up the rest of the clan."

"The body works best with a light digestive load. The typical practice of eating a large breakfast, lunch, and dinner, plus snacking throughout the day and eating before going to bed, significantly increases the digestive load. As well as rapidly depleting our enzyme reserves, the eliminative function is seriously restricted. We can let garbage accumulate in our kitchen for only so long before it causes a problem in our living environment. It is the same with our bodies."

"In 1784, the Asiatic Society (later, the Asiatic Society of Bengal) was founded in India; in his inaugural address, its first president Sir William Jones issued its members a broad remit: You will investigate whatever is rare in the stupendous fabrick of nature; will correct the geography of Asia by new observations and discoveries; will trace the annals, and even traditions, of those nations who, from time to time, have peopled or desolated it; and will bring to light their various institutions civil and religious."

"For information to reach particle B instantaneously, it would have to violate the law that nothing can travel faster than the speed of light.13 There actually is no causal explanation for entanglement, and by extension nonlocality, within the domain of the Standard Model, but the phenomenon is real. It has been experimentally verified beyond a doubt. Einstein famously called nonlocality "spooky action at a distance," and for him this phenomenon meant that something was seriously wrong with quantum theory."

"This vitamin is sensitive to light and is damaged when exposed to strong light. On the other hand, persons lacking this vitamin become sensitive to strong lights and find it difficult to tolerate such lighting. Availability. A minimum of from four to five milligrams each day of this vitamin should be sought. Apparently, individuals need about twenty-five or fifty percent more of Vitamin B2 than of Vitamin Bl. Glandular meats, such as that of the heart, liver or kidney, are high in this vitamin, with calf liver leading the list."

"Simon Ortiz of Acoma Pueblo Chaco Canyon can be a haunting place when the setting sun bathes its reddish cliffs in a rosy light. The shadows lengthen as the weathered masonry of the Anasazi great houses merges into darkness. Five thousand people once lived in this canyon. I stop and look down into the depths of the great kiva at Casa Rinconada, imagining the clinging wood smoke, the pine torches, the tumult of the masked dancers moving back and forth. A lizard scuttles across the earthen floor and vanishes into the sipapu, the sacred way that brought humans into the living world."

"At night the brilliant moon bathed the deck in silvery light so bright I could read a book. I marveled at the sheer predictability and continuity of it all, at a passage that took me out of the stream of time. After a few days the passing stars were old friends. I remember thinking of the ancient Polynesian navigators who had sailed these 39 same waters in their double-hulled canoes long before us. I imagined the low-slung canoe surging from wave to wave, bellying fiber sail straining overhead, the crew sleeping in the hulls."

"Moreover, unlike manure, a full guano sack was light enough to be carried up steep slopes with ease. In 1840 and 1841 a consortium of British, French, and Peruvian businessmen acquired a monopoly on guano exports and loaded almost eight thousand tons of it on Europe-bound ships. The stench of the first shipment was reportedly so foul that the inhabitants of Southampton, England, took to the hills in disgust. Considering the poor sanitation in European cities of the day, the smell must have been truly awesome. So were the profits."

"To the extent that this crisis encouraged Asian peoples to rethink their businesses and their economies in light of the criticism they received from abroad, the crisis may have been helpful for the countries. The expansion of markets can, if done correctly, add salience to information about fundamentals, that is, encourage public attention to long-run fundamentals and deflect attention away from short-run speculation."

"Suffice it to say that such knowledge of the placebo effect would shed light on important medical issues. Yet the issue of causation remains: whether it is endorphins or the immune system or other mechanisms or some combination of these, healing begins with what has been called a "meaning response."17 Let us conclude this section with an evaluation of the placebo's place in contemporary medicine. In previous chapters, we've mentioned the word this phenomenon on several occasions, but almost always as an afterthought or footnote to a study that assesses some therapy."

"A serious game," I replied. The light turned red. "Because to state the obvious," she continued, ignoring my comment, "medicine is not going to vanish." As fate would have it, at that very moment we drove by a church, a modest structure with a sign board in front that each week featured a new religious sound bite. ''''Imagination Can Be A Dangerous Thing," it proclaimed. We shook our heads. Perhaps that's true, but I prefer the inestimable John Keats, who wrote about the "truth of imagination."

"The idea was to design an elegant experiment, and not be deterred by the fact that it could not possibly happen (trains that travel at almost the speed of light, scales that can weigh one single atom, etc.), perform the experiment entirely in one's head, with as much rigor (and as much pizzazz) as possible, and then imagine the results. In so doing, those physicists revealed some of nature's most incredible secrets. I wanted to use this same method to get insight about the social world."
