"That's what causes the characteristic foaming at the mouth—the inability to swallow makes the animal's mouth froth with, not coincidentally, rabies-filled saliva. By the time the animal is foaming at the mouth, the virus will most likely have infected its host's brain, where it chemically induces the animal to feel higher and higher levels of agitation and aggression. When animals are agitated and aggressive, they bite. When their mouths are foaming with rabies-filled saliva, their bites are infectious."

"Maybe some of you remember seeing a mother dip a 'soother' or dummy in sugar before putting it in the baby's mouth. The idea is that the sweet taste will soothe the baby and so stop it crying. When we want to get a child to do something we may promise them 'something nice' which is usually a sweet treat. When we use sugar in this way we set up an association between sugar and comfort and between sugar and reward. These associations are carried into adulthood and may set up varying degrees of negative behavioural patterns with sugar. A Spoonful Of Sugar Helps The Medicine Go Down!"

"There may be difficulty in opening the mouth and sometimes the jaw is locked and opening is very limited and very painful. Clicking in the joint on opening and closing or on side-to-side movement is very common. This is often present even when there is no pain. What causes it? When the joint/muscle system is subjected to excessive force, obviously damage can result. This can happen as a result of an accident or much more commonly as a result of excessive force from the habit of clenching/grinding (Bruxism). Sometimes there may be a litde of both involved."

"The movement of food from your mouth to your anus takes two to three days, but only four to six hours of this time are spent between the mouth and the entrance to the colon. This means that your digested food spends about two days in the colon and rectum, and that's where all the bacteria selected in the first part of digestion can begin to grow. Your immune system has a delicate relationship with these bacteria that starts at birth, when bacteria are introduced to your intestine."

"And wherever it seizes him, it throws him down; he foams at the mouth, gnashes his teeth, and becomes rigid. So I spoke to Your disciples, that they should cast it out, but they could not." He answered him and said, "O faithless generation, how long shall I be with you? How long shall I bear with you? Bring him to Me." Then they brought him to Him. And when he saw Him, immediately the spirit convulsed him, and he fell on the ground and wallowed, foaming at the mouth. So He asked his father, "How long has this been happening to him?" And he said, "From childhood."

"In the New Testament, Jesus says, "Man does not live by bread alone but by every word that proceedeth forth from the mouth of God." "The mouth of God" is a metaphor for the medullar center, and "word" is a metaphor for universal life force (the Holy Spirit). Jesus was trying to tell his followers the life force in the body is a function of universal super-conscious energy flow through the medullar center and not simply a function of the energy ingested through food."

"If salt creates a savory and watery feeling in the mouth, then it is still ionic. If it dries the mouth, this suggests that it has converted to the less assimilable covalent form. Although larger mineral forms or covalently bonded salt may help us initially on one level, eventually they have the potential of building up to toxic overload. Paradoxically, one of the most effective ways to pull out these accumulated minerals is to provide the same mineral in angstrom-size."

"By the time the animal is foaming at the mouth, the virus will most likely have infected its host's brain, where it chemically induces the animal to feel higher and higher levels of agitation and aggression. When animals are agitated and aggressive, they bite. When their mouths are foaming with rabies-filled saliva, their bites are infectious. Angry bite plus infected saliva equals new host, which means survival and reproduction for the virus. The origin of "foaming at the mouth" as an idiom for angry and aggressive behavior isn't the only piece of culture we've gotten from rabies."

"It rises to affect what comes out of our mouths, but we need to treat more than what the mouth is doing. The mouth, in short, is following the imprint. If we have terror stored in our systems, then certain phobias seem normal, or at least comfortable for the system. There are hand-washing compulsives who are comfortable that way and would not dream of changing, nor could they. The ritual binds the pain. Deep feelings rise to the level of behavior and drive compulsions. A prominent comedian who cannot touch doorknobs says he is fine the way he is and would not want to change."

"Alcohol we associate with diseases of the liver, among others. Already we have mentioned most if not all of society's worst plagues. It follows that if we correct our relationship with food and other substances all these organs must benefit and improve their health accordingly. Don't beat yourself up! This is in no way intended to make a person feel bad because they smoke or drink, or because they have a weight problem, or because they have the habit of clenching and grinding or because they have any habit or condition."

"Its legs and arms are withered, its neck the size of a straw, and its mouth the size of a pinhole. It is frantically hungry, but with that tiny mouth, it cannot be fed. Its power comes not from meeting its own desires but from its overwhelming neediness and deprivation. This is an apparition that rushes in only one direction on the health staircase: downward. And it tries to take everyone else down with it."

"Consumers tend to view information coming from the media and other seemingly independent sources as more reliable than company-sponsored ads, so the pharmaceutical industry routinely employs what's known as the "third-party strategy," the art of getting its message into the mouth of a more-credible source. The press is one of the best third parties around for publicizing new drugs, especially when reporters look no further than the press releases they receive from PR agencies like Zeno."

"Side effects include sore throat, bad taste in the mouth, stomach pain, cough, stuffy nose, sneezing, headache, and (more serious) increased difficulty breathing, and swelling of the tongue or throat. Functional dyspepsia (FD) is a disorder characterized by stomach pain or discomfort, which may be accompanied by belching, nausea, bloating, and early satiety without an identifiable abnormality that causes the symptoms. Functional dyspepsia is one of the most common gastrointestinal disorders, affecting as much as 20% of the population."

"Other older antihistamines, such as chlorpheniramine (Chlor-trimeton), cyproheptadine (Periactin), and diphenhydramine (Benadryl), are associated with the same anticholinergic side effects (dry mouth, confusion, urinary retention). The so-called second-generation antihistamines, including fexofenadine (Allegra), loratadine (Claratin), and azelastine (Astelin), claim to specifically block the H-l antihistamine receptor and to cause less drowsiness than the older products, but this is more hype than reality. Side effects are similar to those of the older antihistamines."

"Remember that digestion begins in the mouth. Eat mostly raw fruits and vegetables, nuts, grains, and seeds. Ideally, twice as many vegetables as fruits. Include a quality protein in each meal (raw vegetable, or nut is best). Periodically fast for a day or so on pure water, fresh juices, or watermelon. This gives the organs of digestion, assimilation, and elimination a chance to rest and rebuild. Consume fresh raw fruit and vegetable juices. Eat only foods that you could enjoy as a one-item meal."
- Ron Garner, Conscious Health: A Complete Guide to Wellness Through Natural Means (Get the book.)

"Small Intestine The breakdown of food that begins in the mouth is intensified in the stomach, and is completed in the small intestine where more digestive enzymes are added to the digestive process. The inner lining of the small intestine contains thousands of finger-like projections called villi, which absorb nutrients from digested food. These nutrients pass through the mucus membrane and on to the liver for processing and distribution to the body. The digestive medium of the small intestine is alkaline. Wastes and undigested food from the small intestine are passed into the large intestine."

"Among the Dead Sea Scrolls was the Book of the Essenes, from which the following quote is taken: Kill not the food which goes into your mouth. For if you eat living food, the same will quicken you, But if you kill your food, the dead food will kill you also. For life comes only from life, and death comes always from death. For everything which kills your foods, kills your bodies also.28 How can it be said any more plainly? Why haven't we known this before? Or, if someone did know, why haven't we been told about it?"

"In this example, when I woke, the bed sheet really was in my mouth! As we become more experienced with lucid dreaming, we discover how to maintain awareness even when the dream imagery has all disappeared. In learning how to lucid dream, we learn much more than how to manipulate dream objects and symbols; we learn the importance and proper use of conscious awareness. 2 does the sailor Control the Sea?"

"If you've ever faced a nerve-racking public-speaking situation, you've experienced this shift in the form of a racing heart and cotton mouth. Your muscles and your brain get stiff, and you lose all hope of being flexible and engaging. Or, if the processed signal from the cortex to the amygdala breaks up, you can't think and you freeze. Technically, the full-blown stress response should be called "freeze or fight or flight."

"He bent his head forward and stared at his hands with his mouth open. His gesture was so comical that I had to laugh. "Seriously, how can you expect me to do that?" I asked. "The way I've told you," he snapped. "You can of course, look at whatever. ... I said your hands because that was the easiest thing for me to look at. Don't think it's a joke. Dreaming is as serious as seeing or dying or any other thing in this awesome mysterious world. Think of it as something entertaining."5 Don Juan certainly seemed serious about such a simple technique."

"It's filling in nicely except for the mouth. I tell everyone, "This is simply wonderful—the whole thing!" I remind myself every now and then that this is a lucid dream and start to think that it is becoming fairly long. We applaud these Asian women when they finish, and people get up.... A man has a guitar and starts singing songs. They sound like familiar tunes but the lyrics are new and funny. I try to write them down in the dream journal. . . . He performs another song. Everyone laughs. At this point, I truly become overwhelmed by the beauty and love in this lucid dream."

"Recalling some precognitive lucid dreams, I step up and ask him, "When I hear from you next, what will be the first words out of your mouth to me?" He looks me square in the face and replies, "Robert, you ..." I make a mental note to remember that. Then once again, I have this incredible surge of sound energy within me—like an inner explosion that makes all my cells feel altered and tingle. For a moment, I worry that I am waking up my wife and wonder if my body is flopping around in bed. I wake up tingling and a bit shocked by this sound explosion, since it came unexpectedly."

"That's still about double what the average American makes, and many patients undoubtedly have little sympathy for doctors who cry poor mouth. On the other hand, the average American doesn't spend four years in postgraduate education and emerge $ 1 20,000 in debt before getting his first paying job. Medical students are keenly aware that the average family practitioner will make far, far less than the average specialist; 20 percent of invasive cardiologists, 2 c percent of neurosurgeons, and 14 percent of orthopedists have incomes over $600,000."

"The whole masculine identity—what is called virility—is involved in these two ways of eating, nibbling and picking, as befits a woman, or with whole-hearted male gulps and mouthfuls, just as it is involved in the two (perfectly homologous) ways of talking, with the front of the mouth or the whole mouth, especially the back of the mouth, the throat. . . ."

"Hives, swelling of the mouth or throat, and labored breathing might be provoked by an egg allergy. Rashes/Swelling. Any red rash on the skin or large swollen bump at the injection site that lasts for several days. Extreme sleepiness: Sleeping through feedings, lethargy even when awake. Vomiting/diarrhea. Behavior change. Sudden changes in behavior or personality, tantrums, sullenness, or irritability inconsistent with past behavior. Convulsions. Shock. • Brain inflammation. Blank stares, high-pitched screams, and arching of the back; often followed by seizures."

"It can severely irritate or burn skin, eyes, nose, mouth, throat, and lungs. Phenol can also interfere with the ability of the blood to carry oxygen and cause bronchitis to develop. Higher exposures can cause a buildup of fluid in the lungs, which can lead to pulmonary edema. Internal consumption of large quantities can lead to circulatory collapse, convulsions, cold sweats, coma, and death. Safe Alternatives All over the country, safe, effective natural alternatives to conventional household cleaning products are becoming more available every day."

"Exposure to formaldehyde can severely irritate or burn skin, eyes, nose, mouth, throat, and lungs, in addition to triggering skin allergies, asthma attacks, and even pulmonary edema. For more information on formaldehyde in other parts of the house, see page 40. Perchlorethylene, or PERC, is a toxin found in spot removers, degreasers, and carpet cleaners. It's also the main chemical used in conventional dry-cleaning fluids."
