"By discovering fruits, whether in our backyards or abroad, we can reconnect with nature, the realm of the sublime. To experience biophilia is to love a diversity that, as limitless as it is fragile, both haunts us and fills us with hope. This then, is the story of fruits, and of the intense connections between fruits and humans. A caveat: they can become an all-consuming preoccupation."

"The advent of food preparation, wrote Levi-Strauss in The Raw and the Cooked, "marks the transition from nature to culture." Only through human cultivation were fruits improved and selected for desirable characteristics: smaller seeds, increased flesh and refined eating quality. This discredits the assumption that wild fruits are tastiest—in truth, uncultivated varieties are often inedible. The wild peach is an acrid pea-sized pellet. Feral bananas are filled with tooth-shattering seeds. Untamed pineapples are full of gritty pebbles."

"These aren't the small cherry-plum hybrids that occur in nature, like the feral myrobalan: Zaiger is talking about Bing cherries the size of a large plum. Such mutations aren't genetically engineered using DNA splicing; they are bred naturally. Hybrid fruits are made by dusting pollen from the stamen of one flower onto the pistil of another and then growing out the resultant seed. This approach is limited: only flowers from related species can pollinate each other."

"Aviation alerts have been caused by passengers transporting the fruit in their luggage. Citing "grossness," not safety, Virgin Airlines manager Brett Godfrey canceled a 2003 flight in Australia because of a castaway durian. "It just is the most pungent, disgusting smell," he said, suggesting it belongs in an outdoor dunny. It's also advisable to abstain from alcohol while eating durians. Pairing them entails serious bloating."

"And for babies, I recommend getting a Tummy Tub from the New Zealand company nature Baby (www.naturebaby.co.nz). It's the very best baby bathtub you can buy—deep and upright to give your baby the secure feeling of being inside the womb. The unique shape also prevents your baby from sliding. Other Bathing Tips: As I mention earlier, the tap water in our homes might be contaminated with any number of toxins, and we aren't just exposed by drinking the water—contact through bathing and showering is another concern."

"If you accept that nature with its miraculous diversity offers love and sex potions of various types, this book will help you to know them, find them, and use them. The resource section at the end of this book will give you valuable information for leading a more sexually vital, satisfied life. We may never know when people first employed plants to enhance their sexual desire, function, or satisfaction, but we do know that the human use of plants for health purposes dates back a very long time."

"So naturally 1 share whatever 1 can. nature provides whatever we need to be healthy and alive. There is always a plant which can improve a person's condition." I was deeply honored to meet such a kind and gentle healer. as Uri Vladimirovich. He exempUfies the dedication and astute knowledge of the greatest specialists in natural plant medicines. King of the Altay Our travels around Gorno Altaisk led us to Haren Baludyan, a larger-than-life, boisterous herbal trader and founder of Narena Herbal Company, which distributes Siberian herbal tea formulas throughout Russia and to parts of Europe."

"So come with me on this exploration of nature's agents of desire, from country to country and continent to continent. I promise you, there is sexual adventure in the hot plants. THE OLDEST EOREST Tongkat Ali IN DENSELY SHADED GREENERY ON A STEEP HILL IN THE OLD-est rain forest in the world, I stood soaking wet from a mad downpour. Before me, three Orang Asli—Malaysia's aboriginal people—chopped a mature Tongkat Ali root, one of the most powerful aphrodisiac plants on earth, out of dense soil on a dangerous slope."

"I was the on-air protagonist, a medicine hunter on the trail of one of nature's most potent sex-enhancing herbs. Our group moved about in a Land Cruiser, a pickup truck and van combined, making our way from city to country We packed a small mountain of photographic, video and sound equipment, drinking water, clothing, and personal effects. The trail led us up north in Perak state near the town of Gerik to an Orang Asli village. The original inhabitants of peninsular Malaysia, today about 80,000 Orang AsH remain scattered throughout the country."

"In North America, this species is only available in supplements offered by Nature's Way. Lactobacillus rhamnosus Originally placed under L. casei, L. rhamnosus is thought to share many of the immune-modulating effects of L. casei. Resistant to stomach acid and bile salts, this probiotic is a good candidate for effectively reaching the intestines after oral consumption. A lactic acid producer, L. rhamnosus is found in the small intestine and vaginal tract. As such, it is not surprising that it is effective in inhibiting those bacteria involved in vaginal and urinary tract infections. L."

"Each was created, as it offered a unique function superior to chemicals found in nature. Thought to be wonderful inventions, these chemicals were placed in everyday appliances, school buildings and foods. When they were found to be harmful to health, it was almost impossible to eliminate them from our environment. Despite the fact that the manufacturing of many of these chemicals has slowed or stopped, they are still present in our everyday environment, including schools, offices and public buildings."

"But he was an unusually tough little guy, resilient and cheerful, and his bravery and good nature made his parents adore him that much more. Around the time he turned two, though, Hugo caught an infection that he just couldn't kick, even with his standard antibiotics. His breathing turned gurgly, and his chest and face stayed hot and wet with sweat night and day. At the same time, he developed a viral skin infection called parvovirus B-19, or Fifth Disease, that streaked his cheeks and chest with a red rash. Ron and his wife, Adah, took Hugo to the doctor for more diagnostics."

"Of course, we don't know what the nature of the 'hit' is. It maybe viral, environmental, or something we currently don't understand at all." The first hit, Dr. Sencer said, is your genes, but without the second hit from the environment, you probably won't get cancer. Dr. Davis offered a vivid analogy for the interplay between genes and the environment: "Your genes are the gun, but it's the environment that pulls the trigger. So that in nine out of ten cases, people don't get cancer because of the genes they got from their parents, but because of the environment in which they grew up."

"This is normal; just relax and do the best you can, and soon it will become second nature. ?Lie down in a comfortable position, and close your eyes. Breathe slowly and easily. ?Focus on your left foot. Tense the muscles in your foot, and hold for eight seconds. Release the tension, and relax for fifteen seconds. ?Focus on your right foot. Tense the muscles in your foot, and hold for eight seconds. Release the tension, and relax for fifteen seconds. ?Focus on your lower left leg and foot. Tense the muscles, and hold for eight seconds. Release the tension, and relax for fifteen seconds. ?"

"As you learned in the very beginning of this book, it's a universal experience that on some unconscious level, childhood fears of abandonment get reduced to one almost palpable image of an empty cavity that can be filled only by something outside, as if we're still infants with open mouths waiting for milk, screeching like the baby birds being fed in nature films."

"Over time, recognizing high-nutrient foods and dishes will become second nature to you and you will no longer need to calculate scores. You will be choosing high-nutrient foods and preparing high-nutrient meals automatically from what you have learned. In the beginning, it is helpful to approximate and add up your MANDI points to see your total point value for the day. You can use this to determine the nutrient density of your diet. Eating for superior health means you are attempting to eat as many points as possible."

"Cholesterol itself is not the culprit. nature didn't equip you with a system designed to kill you. The problem lies in an inability to process cholesterol properly and/or an inability for the body's antioxidant system to guard against oxidation of cholesterol. Cholesterol present in the circulation beyond the body's needs or within a cell beyond the needs of that cell serves no useful purpose and can be oxidized by free radicals."

"Functional low thyroid is nature's very own birth control, which was helpful in the dark ages, but it poses problems for modern-day women. Most women that I see with heavy menstrual bleeds require thyroid hormone, minerals (particularly iron and magnesium), and vitamin A. Because thyroid hormone is needed to convert beta-carotene into vitamin A, you must use a vitamin A form of replacement (not one made from beta-carotene). High doses of vitamin A are often needed to treat bleeding problems, as vitamin A strengthens the uterine lining."

"It is in the nature of life that for every symptom, an underlying cause exists, yet the cause lies hidden and seems to be unrelated to the symptom. Purely mechanistic approaches to treating the body, as they are applied in the system of allopathic medicine, usually fall short in locating and healing these hidden causes. They will remain undetected unless we begin to view the body as a process that is organized by a superb combination of energy and information or intelligence rather than as an assembly of different parts such as we would find in a machine."

"Cancer patients, for example, tend to experience the most traumatic side effects because of the highly invasive nature of the treatments involved. The standard treatments for cancer are not meant to heal, but to destroy. The potential benefits of these treatments are not only questionable but also, according to one of the most comprehensive documented studies, non-existent. (See below.) Can You Trust in Chemotherapy? Former White House press secretary Tony Snow died in July 2008 at the age of 53, following a series of chemotherapy treatments for colon cancer."

"Modern technologies and computers were derived from the principles of information and energy that came to light through the study of quantum physics; yet with regard to understanding the nature of life and treating the human body, we still rely mostly on old and outdated Newtonian principles. Understanding the way the human body operates becomes relatively easy once we apply the principles of quantum physics. You as consciousness, soul or spirit, are the only true source of that energy and information that run your body."

"Summary and Concluding Remarks: Healing the Ultimate Cause My purpose for writing this book was to offer an alternative view of what cancer is, one that reflects the intelligence and purpose of nature's laws. Important and commonsense reasons govern the constructive forces of natural law; the same is true of natural law's destructive forces. If it were otherwise, growth would not occur, and the universe as we know it would have vanished long ago. Everything has meaning, regardless how meaningless it may appear to be."

"It is stimulating to cells—that's its very nature. This effect is kept in check by the opposing effects of progesterone, a calming force. Critics of natural hormones are correct when they say that natural hormones carry risks. But if natural hormones are used safely and wisely, the risks can be minimized—and not using them is risky, too. Heart disease, dementia, bone loss, depression, urinary infections, and sexual dysfunction result from too little estrogen."

"Being an inquisitive scientist, he had investigated the nature of heart disease and formulated his own vitamin and mineral concoctions. He thrived on the home-made program. One of my patients, a particularly difficult case, asked me to contact Rinse for suggestions. During a phone conversation, the chemist told me that he had the secret treatment for atherosclerosis. Being a cocky young cardiologist, I was initially amused, but I soon realized I was talking to somebody who described the chemistry of heart disease in a way I hadn't heard before."

"Over time this can have toxic effects on your body. In nature, foods and nutrients vary depending on the season. If our eating habits reflected this, our vitamins and minerals would change seasonally. Chinese medicine uses foods as medicine, guided by the seasons. In the fall and spring, when root vegetables are plentiful, "liver cleansing" is advised. In the summer, berries, which are rich in antioxidants, protect us from the sun's radiation while melons cool us. We tend to ignore our seasonal clues about diet that can help to direct our supplement needs."

"One difference in the brain is that some strokes are hemorrhagic in nature, meaning they result from a ruptured blood vessel. The local hemorrhage causes tissue damage. High blood pressure is the primary cause of hemorrhagic stroke. When a heart attack occurs, the heart muscle—the pump—has been affected. In a stroke, the occlusion or a bleed occurs in the brain circulation and the affected tissue in the brain. Both can and usually do occur abruptly. Angina (chest pain) is a warning sign of disturbed circulation in the heart and is transient. No damage is done, but it must be evaluated."

"Molecular structure of nature's two forms of beta-carotene. Synthetic is only the trans form. Cis and trans forms of beta-carotene are two different compounds, different chemically, and different physically. They behave differently when crystallizing and when dissolving. There is also a difference when they are absorbed in the intestine for digestion. In fact, a study showed that chickens and rats absorb ten times more natural beta-carotene than synthetic! In studies where beta-carotene is correlated with lower incidence of cancer, the beta-carotene is from natural food."
