"For example, the man who came as a cash register was a money-making machine, pleasing his parents, who always spoke about money. He wanted their love. The way he thought to get it was through making money. It was his act-out. In group, patients act out in a safe atmosphere. Someone who is obsessed with looking at ecstatic females in pornographic magazines will be encouraged to bring the magazine to group. The need one patient arrived at was, "Be happy to see me, Momma." In this case, the boy had a chronically depressed mother."

"Buying local food straight from the farmer puts you in closer touch with the origin of the food, cuts a significant portion of the time and money spent transporting and "selling" the food, saves you money, and places more dollars in the pocket of those who produce your food. Eating in the Culture of Life is about more than feeling good because of the food itself, but involves the impact of your dietary choices on the economic, agricultural, ecological, political, social, and cultural realities of your community, your nation, even the world."

"They think it is too much money to spend on something they don't really need or will never use. If you are in this camp, I understand. The reason I strongly recommend that you purchase yoga props is that a prop like a bolster helps you achieve more precise alignment and physical relaxation than a lumpy couch pillow does. If you don't feel like spending the money right now, that is fine. Try a few of the restorative yoga exercises using pillows, towels, and blankets from around your house, see if you like restorative yoga, and then make the decision whether to invest or not."

"To celebrate her recovery, she now runs regularly in "Breast Cancer" races to raise money for research—and she's absolutely oblivious to the contradiction. God bless her! 2. You compromise your immune system to the point that it can no longer handle all of the cancerous cells your body produces—thus allowing some of them to take root and establish themselves. 3. Circulation (in the broadest sense) is impeded—thus leading to both 1 and 2 above. Let's explore these three points in a little more detail. 1."

"This problem is due not only to high-tech ways of developing new medical treatments, but also to decisions about what medical insurance will cover, and for how much money. Unfortunately, an entire way of thinking about and relating to patients and their wellness has been a casualty of the new emphasis on high-tech and fast results. 210 The consequences of this focus have not hit yet, but they will. Medical schools will spend even more of medical students' time on teaching new mechanical procedures and techniques and less on teaching them how to hear you and understand how you feel and think."

"You have YUUK MMNUMb AKt KtAL a right to get your money's worth; if you find that you are not, you should take your business elsewhere. Find a Doctor Who Gives You Enough Time Other factors may influence your feelings about being on the same page with a specialist, and these factors may also affect the outcome of your relationship with him or her. The first thing that may work against the success of your consultation with any specialist is managed care. Managed care has changed medicine from being patient-centric to being time-centric."

"I simply do not know and am leery about your spending your money on unproven therapies. After all, peddlers of alternative therapies may simply be trying to sell more of a product: not exactly a good reason to trust someone. And remember the issue of toxicity that I just mentioned. Traditional medicine has plenty to offer; you just have to find the right doctor. Today, alternative treatments are legion. Magazine ads and Web sites offer testimonials about the efficacy of literally thousands of food products that sound as if they might be helpful."

"Despite these side effects, I still use these as my first line drug for pain in three kinds of cases: when money is an issue (duloxetine is very expensive, but TCAs are cheap); major problems with recurrent headaches, for which low doses of TCAs often work wonders; and when the patient reports both pain and disrupted sleep. Sedation is a side effect of one drug in this earlier class, amit-ryptilene—sometimes known by the brand name Elavil—and so it can help with sleep problems."

"Any cure must come from within the medical community—to justify all of the money being raised and spent—and, in fact, to justify the doctor's very existence as a doctor.2 That means that • Even though it's relatively easy to reduce the incidence of cancer by close to 90% (back to the levels experienced 100 years ago), no one in the medical community will tell how."

"Growing more confident with each easy victory, Khusro then turned to the northeast, on a march whose objectives were the extortion of money from each walled city en route. With the example of Antioch preceding him, the need for pitched battles was nonexistent. Edessa was good for two hundred pounds of gold, Dara for one thousand pounds of silver. In 541, Khusro returned to his home in Mesopotamia, quite properly feeling he had earned the right to boast."

"It's a waste of money. Of course, later on, when Mary enters a stress management program, or has heart bypass surgery, she now tells everyone she knows that she's found the real cure for heart disease and recommends to all her friends that they do the same. (It's worth noting that the antioxidant did, in fact, significantly improve the overall level of her Personal Health Line, but since Mary didn't feel any difference, she incorrectly assumed that she had received no benefit.) The bottom line is that the same supplement, used by two different people Death Immune Heart Cancer etc."

"WHY FOOD SYNERGY MATTERS We all want the best value when we spend our money, right? And most of us over the age of 40 are very concerned about preventing cancer, stroke, and heart disease as we grow older. Well, food synergy is about getting the biggest health bang for your buck by pairing various foods and nutrients in meals and snacks. Think of it this way: Have you ever eaten a meal that was high in fiber and contained a sensible serving of protein and found that you actually ate less than usual but still felt satisfied?"

"I spend the extra money and buy freshly squeezed OJ (in plastic bottles) because the difference in flavor is amazing; once I tried it, it was darn hard to go back. If you prefer fruits to juice, make sure you always have some on hand. Cut oranges into wedges and chill them in the refrigerator for a great table snack. Buy grapefruit segments or mandarin oranges in jars so all you have to do is spoon them out onto your spinach salad or into your blender for a smoothie. Here are some ways to spruce up your juice so you won't get bored with it."

"There is so much at stake, and so much money in play, that the marketing minions that have come to dominate the executive suites of the pharmaceutical industry have marshaled forces that are a match for the fda. The application process is underwritten by the applicant firms, placing the fda into a client role. Advisory panels are riddled with "experts" with industry ties. The political appointees to the fda and many senior staff are recruited from industry."

"When man's head grizzles and his money dwindles, In their affection he hath naught for share. And another said: Rebel against women and so shalt thou serve Allah the more; The youth who gives women the rein must forfeit all hope to soar. They'll baulk him when seeking the strange device, Excelsior, Tho' waste he a thousand of years in the study of science and lore." And when he had ended his verses he continued, "O my father, wedlock is a thing whereto I will never consent; no, not though I drink the cup of death."

"In the end, ego is more important than money. • Even though the concept of a "cure for cancer" is basically bogus (more on that later), you will still be asked to raise and contribute billions of dollars to search for it.1 So Let's Talk About the Nature of the Disease. Does anyone really believe that cancer somehow magically appears in isolated spots in your body for no particular reason? And that removing or destroying that cancer in that one isolated spot means that you're cured? Does the above statement sound silly, or even absurd, to you? If it does, you've got a problem."

"Their intention is to put pressure on Congress to direct more money toward breast cancer research. In fact, they plan to sponor races all over the country to raise money for such research projects. They hand over to various government-sponsored medical organizations all the money they collect, hoping that some day somebody will come up with medicines or genetic engineering that will eradicate cancer from our world. They might just as well flush that money down the toilet! Drugs don't cure, and DNA is not absolute destiny."

"Along the way he married a former slave girl named Lupicina, and settled in the imperial capital, behaving like a million other provincials-made-good before and after: He sent money home. Nor did he stop there, summoning half a dozen Illyrian relatives to join him in Constantinople, one of whom was his nephew. Having escaped the bone-grinding poverty of his Illyrian ancestors, Justin was eager to share his good fortune with his family. But while he had made his fortune wirh his sword, he had something different in mind for his favorite protege. While Justin soldiered, Petrus studied."

"If you haven't been in the habit of exercising, it can be helpful to join a gym or hire a personal trainer, because spending the money is a strong motivator. If you have an addiction to food, try a quick walk around the block or a few minutes with a jump rope or even a set of thirty jumping jacks — anything to snap your mind out of the cycle of thinking about the reward. It might sound painfully obvious to suggest exercise as a way of controlling your eating habits. After all, your weight is the sum of a simple formula—the number of calories you take in minus the number you burn."

"This valuation is the future food on our tables and clothes on our backs, and nearly every decision to spend money today ought to be influenced by it. We need a better understanding of the forces that shape the long-run outlook for the market—and it is such an understanding that this book is intended to provide. Acknowledgments Jeremy Siegel, while clearly not agreeing with me on all points, urged me to set down my ideas in this book. He is its real instigator. Jeremy has been a lifelong friend."

"A strong public admiration for those who make money patiently and slowly, unfazed by market fluctuations, has evolved. It is a theme developed in many popular books. Notable among these is The Millionaire Next Door: The Surprising Secrets of America's Wealthy by Thomas Stanley and William Danko, which was on the New York Times hardcover best-seller list for eighty-eight weeks after its publication in 1996 and continued on the Times paperback best-seller list until May 2001, that is, until after the peak of the stock market."

"You'll also save money; it's cheaper than either a latte or cappuccino and better for you. KILL SUGAR CRAVINGS: SUPPLEMENT YOUR DIET In the first two weeks, three micronutrients-selenium, cinnamon, and chromium-can help you resist the urge to eat sweet things, thereby helping diminish insulin resistance. Taken in combination, they kick-start any weight-loss program and have been shown to dramatically reduce both glucose and insulin levels in all the patients I've studied. Selenium Higher selenium levels are associated with reduced insulin resistance."

"American gas stations now make more money selling food (and cigarettes) than gasoline, but consider what kind of food this is: except perhaps for the milk and water, it's all highly processed nonperishable snack foods and extravagantly sweetened soft drinks in hefty twenty-ounce bottles. Gas stations have become processed-corn stations: ethanol outside for your car and high-fructose corn syrup inside for you. « TRY NOT TO EAT ALONE. Americans are increasingly eating in solitude."

"After all, just in the last decade or two we've somehow found the time in the day to spend several hours on the Internet and the money in the budget not only to pay for broadband service, but to cover a second phone bill and a new monthly bill for television, formerly free. For the majority of Americans, spending more for better food is less a matter of ability than priority."

"And then there were the food manufacturers, which stood to make very little money from my grandmother's cooking, because she was doing so much of it from scratch— up to and including rendering her own cooking fats. Amplifying the "latest science," they managed to sell her daughter on the virtues of hydrogenated vegetable oils, the ones that we're now learning may be, well, deadly substances. Sooner or later, everything solid we've been told about the links between our diet and our health seems to get blown away in the gust of the most recent study. Consider the latest findings."

"Recently, however, some of the tonier fruits and nuts have begun boasting about their health-enhancing properties, and there will surely be more as each crop council scrounges together the money to commission its own scientific study. Because all plants contain antioxidants, all these studies are guaranteed to find something on which to base a health oriented marketing campaign. But for the most part it is the products of food science that make the boldest health claims, and these are often founded on incomplete and often erroneous science—the dubious fruits of nutritionism."

"Involuntary treatment provides the public with little protection from violence because these patients tend to be released once their insurance coverage runs out or when the state facility feels compelled to lower its census to save money. Many violent people are able to play to the overconfidence of psychiatrists and con them into thinking they can "cure" dangerous people."

"These books and articles confirm the unholy, corrupting influence of pharmaceutical money on research and practice in the healing professions. At the end of the day, you cannot trust what your doctor tells you because you cannot trust the information your doctor is getting from drug companies. In my clinical experience, the best approach is to avoid taking so-called "antidepressant" drugs. As documented in chapter 2, antidepressants lack effectiveness and cause many serious hazards to the body and mind. They can also produce painful and even dangerous emotional reactions during withdrawal."

"Besides, he felt no animosity toward the police and had donated money to the local police department. His brother-in-law was a fireman, a job that Harry associated in a positive way with the police force. Then, Harry got a new idea. It made perfect sense at the time because it would pose no risk to others. He would break into a police car to get a shotgun; that way he wouldn't have to hurt anyone else. So he began driving toward the town police station where he knew he could find parked patrol cars. He was determined to get a gun without doing any harm to a policeman."
