"Nearly seventy, Wennberg has no trouble making the steady climb over the snow. His face is craggy, with bristling brows and gray hair curling around his ears. With big, beefy hands, he looks more like a gentleman rancher than a maverick medical researcher. At the top of a ridge we stop, our breath coming fast, to look out over the rolling hills and compact houses of Lyme, New Hampshire, which is not unlike one of the dozens of small towns Wennberg visited during his research in Vermont. I ask him why doctors deliver so much medical care that is useless and even harmful."

"Longman's grandfather still made house calls, and he did not want to arrive in a Cadillac for fear of looking ostentatious; but he also didn't want to drive a Chevy for fear his patients would think he was not a very good doctor and therefore wasn't making any money. (He settled on a Ford Galaxy.) Medicare effectively removed the social controls on the fees physicians charged the elderly. With the disembodied government now footing the bill, the doctor was no longer charging his elderly patients directly, and it no longer mattered as much whether he drove a Cadillac or a Chevy."

"I Hospitals around the country are making the same calculations and cc eluding that they all need newer, faster scanners. This strategy represen shift from the late 1980s through the '90s, when hospitals didn't vie fo1 tients directly but rather for the business of managed care plans, which sent them patients if they slashed their prices. New technologies like speed CT scanners were viewed as too expensive for the most part, an i ne Limits ot seeing pitals refrained from investing in anything that did not promise to reduce the cost of care."

"Party tricks What all of these data suggest, aside from the observation that many cardiologists are either unaware of the scientific evidence or ignoring it when making their decisions, is that the supply of medical resources, rather than the underlying needs of patients, is determining how much medical care they get. Or to put it another way, supply is inducing demand. Markets are not supposed to work this way."

"Or maybe, as Moon and Realyvasquez claim, they were making judgment calls within the wide latitude permitted by the art of medicine, the uncertainty of cardiology. If that's the case, then the saga of Redding Medical Center points to the desperate need in medicine for clearer standards and better evidence for what works and what doesn't. The story of Redding also highlights the need for a new way to pay doctors and hospitals, a system that doesn't allow financial imperatives to propel clinical decisions."

"When Lenzer asked Dawes if she could do a thorough physical exam and get a complete history before making any referrals, Dawes was taken aback. Nonetheless, she agreed to allow Lenzer to take her history and examine her. Thirty-seven years old at the time, Dawes had begun having complaints twenty-four years earlier, when she fainted for the first time at the age of thirteen. Since then, she had passed out more times than she could count. Most days, she could hardly stand up without feeling woozy. She was hospitalized at twenty-five for a "nervous breakdown," as she put it."

"Are they making sure their female patients get regular Pap smears, and do they take steps to ensure that surgical patients don't contract infections? Physicians and hospitals are so wedded to the notion that more dollars buy better care that despite thirty years of data, the Dartmouth group's findings had gained only grudging acceptance. Fisher was looking to produce a study that would persuade his medical peers."

"In 1911, Goldberger and Anderson succeeded in making monkeys contract measles from filtered fluid from the airways of a measles patient. They were even able to transmit the disease from one monkey to another. When such infectious fluid was placed under a light microscope and revealed no bacteria, viruses could be presumed to be present because something too small to see was causing infection. Today's electron microscope, which makes viruses visible, was decades in the future. Dissection of a virus with DNA recombinant techniques was not yet within the realm of possibility."

"Once the virus has moved on, it has no problem if the lungs in the old host are reduced to an amorphous foaming mass, making it impossible to draw even the slightest breath. In 1918, there were actually two influenza epidemics. The first occurred in the spring and was in no way different from a normal annual flu epidemic. The second occurred in the fall, with the tragic outcome that millions died all over the world. This disaster would become known as the Spanish flu, because the first few cases were reported from Spain."

"Apes, our closest primate relative, are on the brink of extinction, making it likely that we will soon be the only ones left of the ape family. Any species can potentially reach a time when it can not longer cope with the struggle against its environment. (Today, in zoos and other controlled environments, we maintain a few species that would be extinct without our intervention. But who would intervene for us if we needed such a lifeline?) Extinction can be a slow and natural process, or it can be relatively sudden, as with climate change, meteorite impact, and disease epidemics."

"It seems likely that a third virus, probably a retrovirus, must have provided the enzyme for making DNA from RNA. Retroviruses get their name from a unique enzyme—reverse transcriptase—that can transcribe RNA to DNA. Harmless retroviruses are present in most vertebrates most of the time, as explained in chapter 6. Sometimes they are endogenous, or built into the host genome, and sometimes they are exogenous or circulating viruses. Either way, they can lend their special enzyme to many uses."

"When he was sixteen, he was making a bomb in his basement and ended up blowing off his right hand and all but two of the fingers on his left. Nonetheless, he went to MIT and became a highly successful aeronautical engineer, as well as a croquet champion and top bridge player. In 1993, after his brother had a heart attack, John started seeing a cardiologist who prescribed medication that he would have to take for the rest of his life. Ten years later, he experienced shortness of breath."

"If even a prostitute, matking out an individual as a victim, raised a charge of criminal intercourse against him, all law was at once rendered vain, and by making Justinian her associate in dishonest gain, she transferred to herself the whole wealth of the accused person.7 This account reports what was probably a common understanding among the wealthier citizens of Constantinople, by default the class whose opinions are most likely to make it into the permanent historical record."

"After well over a decade of teaching workshops, and lots of trial and error, we've learned what works best when it comes to making the practice of intentions concrete, practical, and easy. Once you've seen the impact of Brilliant Health Intentions on your body and how good you feel when you get the hang of it, you may become an intention addict. In-the-Moment Intentions: The Anytime, Anywhere Stress Reducer In-the-Moment Intentions are created in that split second between stimulus and response."

"The key is that you're the one making the choice! This chapter will give you practical instructions for how you can use something you've always possessed: the amazing power to intentionally create your own physical, emotional, and behavioral responses. In fact, your health is extremely well-served if you look at intention-setting as an indelible human right. But before we show you how to use intention-setting to achieve Brilliant Health, we want to paint a picture of just how profoundly your intentions can influence your mental, emotional, and physical well-being."

"The fourth practice is Centrality: making central to your life the things you love by acting on them. When life gets busy or you face illness, it's easy to lose sight of your passions, but this is when you need them the most. Living your Centralities may take creativity, unbridled imagination, and single-minded assertion. But by insisting on it, you move yourself up the Brilliant Health staircase to a feeling of true fulfillment."

"Tall, slender, and smiling, she greeted us at the door and told us how pleased she was that her art was making it all the way to the West Coast. At ninety-two, her health is excellent. We asked her secret. With complete directness she said, "Sewing. It is my greatest passion. When I'm sewing, all worries disappear, and I have a wonderful sense of calm. Without it I would wither and die. I can't wait to get up each morning and start to sew. Now, mind you," she twinkled, "I don't stuff the dammit dolls. Sister Lolita loves to do that. And she's ninety-eight!"

"Not a day passes without the body making millions of cancer cells. Some people, under severe temporary stress, make more cancer cells than usual and form clusters of cancerous cells that disappear again once they feel better. According to medical research, secretions of the DNA's powerful anticancer drug, Interleukin II, drop under physical and mental duress and increase again when the person becomes relaxed and joyful. Low secretions of Interleukin II increase the incidence of cancer in the body. However, people are generally not under severe stress all the time."

"If they hold onto the belief, "The body is making me sick," long enough, that misinterpretation of the real situation will turn into something that they eventually experience to be true. Furthermore, if many other people believe the same thing, it becomes an established "fact" we have to live with. Before long, an entire population knows this "fact" and behaves accordingly, with fear and apprehension. Their truth becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy, and natural instincts and common sense are thrown out of the window. Collectively, we have created an atmosphere that expects disease."

"It is not about making moderate changes to slow the progression of heart disease. It is about embarking on a significant change in lifestyle that will actually arrest the disease's progression and selectively reverse its effects. Central to the program's success is the fact that the patients themselves assume complete control over their disease. They alone have the capacity to abolish it. They alone, in sticking with my nutrition guidelines over time, have the ability to ensure that the beneficial effects will expand and endure. They treat more than the symptoms of heart disease."

"Jordan that the medicine could be making their son worse. "When the doctor prescribes medicine you assume it's going to make you better," Dad explained to me. Later, they would be outraged to learn that antidepressants had never been proven to relieve depression in children—that doctors were prescribing them without FDA approval and without scientific justification—a mistaken practice that continues to this day. Toward the end, Andy confided in his parents that he thought he heard Jesus or God telling him it was time to come. What were they to do about these alarming signs?"

"And, to a large extent, it's our Western diet and lifestyle that are making us sick and ultimately killing us-although paradoxically, as you'll soon learn, they suit our genes just fine. Sadly, as a heart surgeon, I don't see many people like Michelle-at least initially. Many of my patients are severely ill and often prematurely aged. Most are also overweight."

"If your activity decreases, Hal would assume that you're injured and immediately reduce the amount of food your muscles receive by making your muscles less able to take up glucose, a condition known as insulin resistance. (As you will learn in Chapter 2, insulin carries glucose, or blood sugar, to the cells, where your body can use it for energy. Excess glucose is converted to fat and stored for future use.) A case in point: Athletes prescribed bed rest for 48 hours become insulin resistant.14 Why would this happen? To reduce the utilization of fuel by the main consumers, the muscles. Wow!"

"However, making that connection raised profound questions and involved some mathematical sleight of hand. As an illustration of the problem, let's look at the electron's spin. Among QED's main difficulties was that it could not describe the electron's spin value. Spin is a curious property in quantum physics that describes a particle's intrinsic angular momentum. It is an inherent property of quantum objects, rather like mass or charge, and it can have a positive or a negative value. Quantum spin is counterintuitive, even bizarre."

"Over the month he was there, his body released masses of white, jellylike parasites, but otherwise, the fasting was making him sicker. His weight dropped from 154 pounds to just over 111 pounds. The weight loss added to his feelings of fatigue, and Harry returned to England considerably worse off than when he had left. "I was by now," he said, "properly disabled." By the time he returned home, he discovered that the friend who had recommended the clinic was, in fact, relapsing and was back at the clinic herself."

"Visible light is a stream of freewheeling photons, but focus that stream of light, making it supercoherent, and you have a laser. In the body, coherent resonant fields may enable individual molecules, cells, and even organ systems to share information. Albert Szent-Gyorgyi, a Nobel prize-winning biochemist who made major discoveries in the 1940s about how certain cell molecules (specifically mysoin) control muscle functioning, is considered by many to be among the leading figures in the history of bioenergetics."

"This means making steady deposits into our enzyme account rather than steady withdrawals. With a good enzyme reserve and a regular supply of active enzymes in raw, alkaline-producing food, disease conditions can be reversed and eliminated; the effects of aging can be reversed. Not only can we live longer, but our quality of life will be much improved. Energy, strength, health, and longevity are directly proportional to enzyme resources.23 Every enzyme we consume in food or in supplement form means one less enzyme the body must deplete from its resources."

"Many patients become "cardiac cripples," terrified of exerting themselves physically, of making love, of expressing or experiencing strong emotions. To give such patients lasting relief, it is essential to bring more blood to the heart muscle— despite the fact that the blood must flow through partially blocked coronary arteries. How? By restoring the endothelium's capacity to manufacture nitric oxide. The effects of a radical shift in nutrition are breathtaking— dramatic and swift."

"Today, however, oligodynamic silver is making a comeback as a safe and effective alternative to antibiotics, especially useful against antibiotic-resistant bacteria. What's more, in 2004, an alarming report in the Journal of the American Medical Association reported an observed connection between frequent antibiotic use and elevated breast cancer risk."
