"We have told you more than you need to know to know about the risks of the psychostimulants being absolutely unacceptable—that they are highly addictive, that they cause anger, aggression, violence, psychosis, seizures, involuntary movements, brain shrinkage, stunting of growth, high blood pressure, cardiac arrhythmias, cardiomyopathy and death. Once again, all you have to do is, recall that your child is normal, and read all of the side effects—what they admit to—in the drug insert. You should need no further convincing."

"Need we say no drug in this group should every be given to a normal child. As always, look at the "side effects" in the drug insert. You will find most or all of these side effects mentioned which is industry's way of protecting themselves as they do all they can legally to assure that psychiatrists and as many other physicians as possible will desert what medical science they learned and use all of their products to treat the mental illnesses/disorders/chemical imbalances, industry itself has crafted such indelible illusions of."

"At times I have prescribed anti-psychotic drugs to brain-damaged, retarded, children (clearly abnormal/diseased) who could be controlled no other way. Drugs of this group can induce a Parkinson's syndrome, or dystonias—torticollis and retrocollis (which often abate with cessation of the medication) and tardive (late onset) dyskinesias (involuntary writhing and tic like movements) which are often permanent and untreatable."

"Prozac included, should ever be given to normal children regardless of their mood, psychological state or psychiatric disorder—none of which are diseases, none of which have an immutable 'prognosis' as does a disease. The very same must be concluded about the exceedingly dangerous tricyclic and heterocyclic antidepressants (Tofranil, Norpramin (desipramine), Elavil, Desyrel, etc.). Recall the spate of sudden cardiac deaths reported in the mid-1990s leading psychiatrist John Werry of New Zealand to urge that they be banned from use in children, a suggestion beaten back by friends of industry."

"Their triglyceride levels had fallen into the normal range. The proportion of omega-3 fatty acids in their tissues had increased dramatically. "In summary," O'Dea concluded, "all of the metabolic abnormalities of type II diabetes were either greatly improved (glucose tolerance, insulin response to glucose) or completely normalized (plasma lipids) in a group of diabetic Aborigines by a relatively short (seven week) reversion to traditional hunter-gatherer lifestyle."

"In his books he cites studies on normal people without a trace of back pain that have spinal abnormalities on X-ray. Other studies have shown that some people with back pain have normal spines on X-ray. So, Dr. Sarno says there is not necessarily any association between back pain and spinal X-ray abnormality.92 However, if a person happens to have back pain and an incidental abnormality on X-ray, they may be treated surgically, sometimes with no change in back pain, or worsening of back pain, or even permanent disability."

"Higher than normal adrenaline levels cause an increase in appetite, which encourages the body to eat more calories and replenish fat stores. In acute (short-term) stress situations, the adrenaline level will soon return to normal once the immediate appetite has been satisfied. This brain-body hormone-stimulating phenomenon served human beings very well in times when people needed to avoid immediate dangers like being eaten by wolves or killed by invading armies. Today, however, the modern person in the United States is not frequently subjected to such immediate dangers."

"BPA can leach into water bottles through normal wear and tear and exposure to heat and cleaning agents. This includes leaving your plastic water bottle in your car during errands, in your backpack during hikes, and running it through your dishwasher or using harsh detergents. What's more, a 2003 study conducted by the University of Missouri published in the journal, Environmental Health Perspectives, found that detectable levels of BPA leached into liquids at room temperature. This means just having your plastic water bottle sitting on your desk can be potentially harmful."

"Study subjects who had normal lipid levels ate a little over two ounces of pecans per day for eight weeks and showed significant decreases in LDL and total cholesterol. Tips on Using Pecans SELECTION AND STORAGE: • When selecting pecans, look for plump nutmeats that are fairly uniform in color and size. • Unshelled pecans can be stored in a cool, dry place for three to six months. • Shelled pecans need to be refrigerated in airtight containers and can be kept up to nine months. Pecans stored in freezer bags can be frozen for up to two years."

"And learning that a sign is normal can save you the time, expense, and anxiety of going to a doctor. We also hope to both educate and entertain you. Body Signs is replete with interesting facts, quotes, and historical anecdotes about the human body. HOW TO USE BODY SIGNS Body Signs does not have to be read from front to back, nor from head to toe (or hair to toenail, to be more precise). Of course, if you want to, go right ahead. Most people will gravitate toward the body part and the sign that most concerns or interests them."

"The page blazes with the message that depressed people have an abnormal brain scan that is made normal, or even better than normal, by Prozac. Buried in the woman's hair in tiny print is the following statement: "This image is an adaptation of a PET scan of a normal brain. Prior history of depression is unknown." This in effect confesses, "We're intentionally giving you the wrong impression. Brain scans have nothing to do with depression and Prozac."

"Once sex hormones are balanced (by normal levels of thyroid and adrenal hormones), most people feel better than ever and are usually sleeping well. This chapter is for shift workers, night owls, anti-aging enthusiasts, and the remaining minority who, though they generally have good energy and stable moods, are still not sleeping through the night. For them a good night's sleep is elusive. Here's how to get it with melatonin. Chapter 12 discusses growth hormone. Good Sleep We all need a good night's sleep for a stable mood, a good memory, and a strong immune system. Sleep is mysterious."

"Maintain a normal body weight. • Avoid excess alcohol (ideally limit to two or three drinks per week). • Eat two to four servings of cruciferous vegetables daily, and if you have a family history of breast cancer, take DC (400 mg/day) and monitor your metabolites. • Aim to eat four to five servings of fresh vegetables and two to four servings of fresh fruits daily. The more colorful foods are high in antioxidants and should be consumed regularly. • If your diet is not ideal, supplement with I3C (400 mg/day) and rotate antioxidant supplements."

"Sometimes we think symptoms are normal, part of getting older. For example, you may be tired every day at 4 p.m. and think, "Oh well, that's life." Or you may wake every night at 3 a.m. and think, "That's what happens when you get older." It may not have dawned on you that these are in fact symptoms of weak adrenals or low thyroid hormones. 21 Symptoms are signs that things are out of balance. Painful, swollen breasts a week or two before your period aren't just part of being a woman. They are a sign that your progesterone is too low or your estrogen breakdown is not great."

"DANGER SIGN If your previously normal eyelid suddenly droops, call your doctor immediately or go to the emergency room. You may have a brain injury or tumor. If your drooping eye is accompanied by double vision, weakness in your facial muscles or other parts of your body, severe headache, or difficulty speaking or swallowing, you may be having a stroke. Having one droopy eyelid may also be an early warning sign of a number of serious neurological or systemic disorders, some of which can be life-threatening."

"Disinhibition: loss of inhibition, as through the influence of external stimuli such as drugs or alcohol, or as a result of brain damage 199 Lability: open to change; adaptable: an emotionally labile person 200 Depersonalization: in Psychology, a state in which the normal sense of personal identity and reality is lost It goes on to say, "Rigorous clinical monitoring for suicidal ideation or other indicators of potential for suicidal behavior is advised in patients of all ages. This includes monitoring for agitation-type emotional and behavioral changes."

"People with a normal sense of smell can discern about 10,000 different odors. Smell loss can also signal a whole host of other medical disorders including diabetes, hypothyroidism, epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, lung disease, and even schizophrenia. Finally, loss of smell can be a very early sign of the neurological disorders Alzheimer's disease and Parkinson's disease. (See Chapter 7.) Unfortunately, both of these conditions are often missed or misdiagnosed in their early stages."

"Using food for reasons other than simple sustenance is a normal part of life. It becomes a problem when food becomes so closely linked with feelings that the two overlap and become one. The foundation for this starts in childhood. "When I was good, I got a cookie"; "When I fell down, I was offered food"; "On summer nights, we went to the lake to get ice cream"; "Sitting at the kitchen table eating bologna sandwiches and chips was the only time I had with my mother"; "When I misbehaved, dessert was withheld."

"HEART DISEASE: A study out of the University of Oslo found that kiwifruit, added to a normal diet, helps a component of red blood cells called platelets become "less sticky." Kiwi also lowered triglycerides (fat in the blood). FIGHTING CANCER: A leading nutrition scientist at the Rowett Research Institute has shown that eating kiwifruit daily can protect DNA against damage that may lead to cancer. More significantly, kiwifruit seems to help repair the damage caused to DNA."

"Following the discovery that cell phones can cause serious health conditions, including cancer, Carlo developed a theory that low frequency cell phone signals interfere with normal cell function. He found that cells exposed to cell phone radiation caused them to go into a protective/defensive mode—similar to what occurs during the "fight or flight response"—which prevents movement of nutrients and waste products through the cellular membrane. The inability to absorb nutrients weakens, damages, or kills cells; and not being able to remove wastes outside cells results in a buildup of toxins."

"Under the influence of the secreted stress hormones, normal cell functions are undermined. In fact, the genetic blueprint (DNA) receives distorted information that, in turn, alters the cell's genetic behavior. Consequently, the DNA's production of natural chemicals, such as the anti-cancer drug Interleukin II and the anti-viral drug Interferon, begins to drop instantly and significantly. The cell's health and defensive capabilities are seriously compromised if the threat or stress persists over a period longer than just a few minutes or hours."

"It is important to understand that genes do not mutate because they become "bored" with being "normal" or because they want to become malignant. Rather, they are left with no other choice but to mutate, which allows them to survive a hostile, toxic "tumor milieu" that has been created by factors other than genetic ones. A tumor-milieu, a cell environment that is poorly oxygenated and highly acidic, is the ideal medium to favor the growth of cancer cells and the microorganisms found in cancerous tumors."

"Everything you do as a normal kid had been ripped away from me. I didn't pay that much attention to what I felt at the time, but now I see I was very angry." Trudi's attempts to come to grips with her situation were a naive phase one of the Recasting process. Certainly, she wasn't consciously crafting how she was responding, but nonetheless, her anger evoked a greater clarity about what she needed to do and who she wanted to be. What did she see? Phase two opened up in front of her. Meaning: Trudi continued, "During that long period of disability something happened."

"Since the normal brain is to Keely "like a harp of many strings strung to perfect harmony," cure is a matter of adjustment: "If we live in a sympathetic field we become sympathetic, and a tendency from the abnormal to the normal presents itself by an evolution of a purely sympathetic flow towards its attractive centers."

"Anrhemius and Isidore had another innovation in mind for their columns. normal practice was to place columns on the second level directly above those on ground level, which was not only traditional, but by turning two columns into one long cylinder, seemingly more stable. The two architects instead placed more, but smaller diameter, columns on the colonnade level, "not with two columns, but with six Thessalian ones" wrote Paul the Silentiary, wondering "at the resolve of the man who upon two columns has bravely set six and has not shrunk from fixing their bases over empty air."

"In 285, after what had become almost the normal pattern of transferring political authority in late third-century Rome—emperor killed on campaign, heir found dead of mysterious causes, adoptive father accused of murder and executed, emperor's eldest son defeated in battle—Diocletian succeeded to the empire of Augustus. Almost immediately, he set about transforming it forever. In 286 Diocletian recruited a coemperor, a fellow Illyrian named Maximian, and formally divided responsibility for imperial defense along an east-west axis."

"Not seeing well in the dark—medically known as nyctalopia—is yet another normal, annoying sign of aging. Night blindness is also a common sign of a cataract. And it's one of the earliest warning signs of vitamin A (retinol) deficiency, which can lead to very dry corneas and retinal damage. However, if you're young and have night blindness, it may be the first sign of a genetic condition called retinitis pigmentosa, a degenerative disease of the retina that may lead to severely impaired vision in some cases. In ancient Egypt, eating liver ^m^jy was thought to cure night blindness."
