"My great-great-grandmother was an herbalist, and then my great-grandmother, and my grandmother, and my mother. I am the fifth generation of women in my family who practice traditional herbal medicine. Ever since I was; a litde girl, I helped my mother when she would prepare remedies. I helped her to pick plants as well, and she taught me all about preparing them and using them." As I find in so many cultures, women are the primary keepers of herbal wisdom. Even when I ask male herbalists in other countries where they learned their craft, most say their mother or grandmother."

"I asked how she got started learning about medicinal herbs. "My mother," she told me. "My great-great-grandmother was an herbalist, and then my great-grandmother, and my grandmother, and my mother.

"Because at this point your mother and possibly even your grandmother is as confused as the rest of us; to be safe we need to go back at least a couple generations, to a time before the advent of most modern foods. So depending on your age (and your grandmother), you may need to go back to your great- or even great-great grandmother. Some nutritionists recommend going back even further."

"If, for example, I am having psychological trouble with my mother, if I have a so-called mother complex, it is important to realize that much of that emotional charge comes not just from my individual mother but from the Great mother, a powerful image in my collective unconscious that is in essence the distillation of mothers everywhere. That is, the psyche comes with the image of the Great mother embedded in it, just as the psyche comes already equipped with the rudimentary forms of language and of perception and of various instinctual patterns."
- Ken Wilber, The Essential Ken Wilber: An Introductory Reader (Get the book.)

"If the Great mother image is activated, I am not dealing with just my individual mother, but with thousands of years of the human experience with mothering in general, so the Great mother image carries a charge and has an impact far beyond what anything my own mother could possibly do on her own. Coming to terms with the Great mother, through a study of the world's myths, is a good way to deal with that mythic form, to make it conscious and thus differentiate from it. I agree entirely with Jung on that matter."

"The possibility exists that it could use the mother's milk. Therefore although Flor-Essence itself can be taken by infants, it is not recommended for nursing mothers. FINAL THOUGHTS As every person is unique, like a fingerprint, Flor-Essence may benefit each one in its own way. However, research and individual experience has shown the formula to be a helpful aid for many diseases as well as for overall health maintenance."

"She's a thirty-eight-year-old mother of three in California, and her youngest child has autism. She recently volunteered for a study on how mothers cope with the stresses of caring for a chronically ill child, and how it affects their health. She indicated to the research team that although she found raising her youngest child to be taxing, she also found the good in her new role. In working through her difficulties, she discovered strengths she didn't know she had, and deepened her religious faith."

"We sent an intention for the girl and her mother to communicate more honestly. After several weeks I received an effusive note from her mother saying that her daughter had come home three weeks after the intentions started and they'd begun having honest, heartfelt talks. She admitted that she was not really gay and disclosed that her problems in trusting men stemmed from her relationship with her father. Not all targets were successful; a newlywed with breast cancer died three days before we carried out our intention; a young woman with cerebral palsy recorded no change."

"Sarah is a six-year-old girl who suffers from chronic asthma. Her mother, Michelle, had tried everything in the way of orthodox treatment for her but Sarah still needed to go to hospital on a weekly basis for treatment for her asthma. After attending the Buteyko programme, Sarah showed at least a 70 per cent improvement. Her mother was so pleased with the result that she is now committed to promoting the method. PHYSICAL EXERCISE At the 1984 Olympic Games in Los Angeles, 20 per cent of the athletes competing had asthma, and this percentage is reflected in many sports."

"Embryo development can be adversely affected by tiny amounts of substances in the mother's diet. 2. A pregnant mother's diet may even alter gene expression in children and be passed on to future generations. 3. GM crops may contain substances that impact normal fetal development, but have never been adequately tested for these effects. Pregnant mothers eating GM foods may endanger offspring Embryo development may be highly sensitive to changes in the diet due to GM foods, but almost no intergenerational feeding studies have been conducted."

"Then there was her mother. Nina's mother had recently been diagnosed with a brain tumor. It was stressful because the doctors couldn't figure out what was going on, how bad it was, or what would happen next. On top of all this, for years Nina had longed to be pregnant. She and her husband desperately wanted a larger family, but month after month she'd find that their efforts had failed. She blamed herself. She had no self-confidence. She felt depressed and lonely most of the time. She cried a lot. She'd get terrible headaches."

"For example, you are what your mother ate. Inadequate nutrition during pregnancy increases the infant's risk later in life for heart disease, high blood pressure, glucose intolerance and diabetes, reduced intellectual ability, impaired immunity, and even obesity. According to Irvin Emanuel, M.D., professor of epidemiology and pediatrics at the University of Washington in Seattle, the nutritional status of our grandmothers and great-grandmothers affects our health by influencing how well our mothers and their mothers developed in the womb."

"There was this female egg talking to her doctor telling him she felt that she needed Prozac because her daughter thought her mother wasn't much fun to be with anymore. The doctor agreed that they definitely don't want her little girl to grow up without having fun so he puts the mother on Prozac. Well, at the beginning of this cartoon it gives the beginning of the lady's name and the city she lives in, but as you read a bit further, you see this small print at the bottom stating that the cartoon is not actually based on a real situation or a real person."

"Total Carbohydrate Intake To ensure provision of glucose to the fetal brain, which needs about 33 g/day, and supply the glucose fuel requirement for the mother's brain independent of utilization of ketoacids (or other substrates), a minimum amount of 175 g of carbohydrates is necessary to prevent ketosis [32]. Carbohydrate recommendations vary from 40 to 45% of total daily calories [8, 36, 39,40]. An estimated amount of carbohydrates generally comprises between 200 and 225 g of carbohydrates for a 2000-calorie meal plan."

"J), which replaces foods containing essential micronu-trients, thereby putting the mother and fetus at risk for nutrient deficiencies, and (2) the interference of alcohol with the metabolism of all fat and water-soluble vitamins [35], especially folate, and zinc. These nutrients are key to fetal development because of their involvement in multiple systems: enzyme, gene transcription, and transport. Folate insufficiency, mentioned earlier in the etiology of spina bifida and cleft lip and palate, has also been implicated in the etiology of limb and heart abnormalities and Down syndrome [36]."

"Okay," the mother said. "I'd like to see him before he goes back to school," the doctor continued. "The biggest side effect of this is a little bit of an upset stomach." The doctor got the child back on the speakerphone. "I'm concerned about all the worrying you do," the doctor told the boy. "Would you be willing to try a medication to get rid of all those worries?" The child hesitated. He said he didn't like taking pills. "You can barely see it," the doctor said. "It's so tiny." Dr."

"Rust of Kirtland Hills, Ohio, said she was horrified as she watched a doctor switch her elderly mother to a new drug that was heavily promoted from one that seemed to be helping her. "The representative of the company has been after me to switch my patients," the doctor had explained. "We were helpless," Mrs. Rust said. "I cried and so did Mom. She was 87 years old and a timid elderly person. I won't forget her confusion and sadness."

"Pam Wheeler, a Des Moines mother of three, said she worried the screening would identify children who were not actually ill but simply coping with some of the rough times that are typical in the life of an American teenager. "If you ask a sixteen-year-old girl whether she has had a hard time getting out of bed, there is a good chance she will say yes," Mrs. Wheeler said. "She could have just broken up with her boyfriend or had a fight with her mom. My concern is that this is a way to squeeze in more diagnoses for mental illness that may not exist."

"She replied, "I'm the image of your mother that's in your head. You need me, so why do you fight me?"4 Whether from emotional reasons or scientific and spiritual ones, general reluctance exists in lucidly exploring the issue of the deceased. Clearing the tangled brush of beliefs around the topic requires a certain fearlessness. One must let go of the false stability of assumptions, while holding tight to the vapors of uncertainty. Approaching the issue with curiosity and an open mind may open up a constructive pathway."

"After realizing that we had both dreamt the same request, I assumed the dream had a literal meaning and called my mother. At first, she feared that she had given my father's clothes to charity, but then recalled that a couple of suits had been saved. When she checked the suit coat pockets, she was shocked to discover meaningful family photos that my father had placed in one pocket. In this example, my niece and I didn't see the other in the dream state, but we had the same basic information and experience, the information meshed and proved true."

"C. J., mother of four grown children not willing to make those promises, you may not be willing to weather the storms ahead. Same with a food diary: If you're not willing to commit to a simple act of writing down what you eat, then you're more likely to stumble at the first Twinkie or bucket of KFC.

"For my mother." This was met by stony silence. They didn't seem angry, more stunned than anything, and I quickly went on to the next dream. Years later, my friend returned to this lucid dream and told me that I had uncovered a family secret. In their family, for many centuries, the women had given birth on occasion to children with this nonvisible physical problem. In some cases, the children had died quickly and suddenly. "I don't know how you came up with that answer," she said, "since nobody knows this family secret. But you were right." 2."

"He called his mother, asking her to come from her nearby home and drive him to the emergency room. He was only thirty-six. The physicians in the emergency room told him that they too believed it was his heart. But as they performed more tests, the doctors discovered that it wasn't his heart at all. He remembers one doctor told him it was "the medicine." Fighting for his life, he had little time to contemplate then what the doctor had meant. Jerry spent almost all of the next three months in the hospital. When he finally went home, he had another person's liver."
