"It became clear to me that the likeliest scenario was a period of chaos, followed by a period of experimentation out of which a Phoenix could rise. However, that scenario would have a human cost far greater than we are paying for the current unconscionable state of health care. So began my ten-year odyssey. I took advantage of invitations to address Congress and the leadership of such "stakeholders" as industry, insurance, and labor. All understood my message. Some shared my zeal. None were willing to act for reasons ranging from self-interest to fear of being accused of rationing."

"She also reported that she had not had a period for eleven months. When a woman has not had a period for twelve months, she is officially menopausal. Pam was on that cusp, and the production of her other sex hormones had declined to a point that additional help might be necessary. The progesterone cream had not changed, but the balance among her other hormones had. one size does not fit all As stated in the previous chapter, hormone balance is a process, not a fixed state."

"The luteal phase is the time period beginning with the day after ovulation and running through the remainder of your menstrual cycle (it ends the day before your next period). Typically, the duration of the luteal phase lasts between ten and sixteen days, and is generally consistent from cycle to cycle, averaging for most women at fourteen days. To test this theory, researchers administered bio-identical progesterone by intramuscular injection, vaginal or rectal suppository, or subcutaneous pellets. Bio-identical progesterone resolved PMS symptoms in 83 percent of the women in the study."

"When they tracked geomagnetic activity during the period of the study, they discovered that the dreamers had significantly higher accuracy in picking up the target pictures on nights when the Earth's GMF activity was relatively quiet.37 Geomagnetic activity also affects precognitive dreams—those that forecast events. Dr. Alan Vaughan, a well-known clairvoyant whose dreams accurately foretold the future in great detail, kept a detailed dream diary in order to compare their contents with future events."

"One study evaluated the records of 1,000 patients in an internal medicine clinic over a three-year period. Complaints of pain and fatigue producing real problems for the patient were incredibly common. Although expensive diagnostic testing was usually done, a diag-nosable cause or disease was identified in only 16 percent of cases. These medically unexplained symptoms and their most serious manifestation as medically unexplained illnesses are to a large degree a problem in women's health. And medical school usually does nothing to prepare doctors to help you with this problem."

"If you have been seeing the same doctor for a period of time, you will have developed a relationship. That helps. The opposite of this is going to an emergency room or to an urgicare center ("doc-in-a-box"). These doctors do not have time to take care of anyone who has an illness more complicated than a sore throat or a sprained ankle. Doctors in academic centers often have surprisingly large amounts of time to devote, especially to people with complicated or hard-to-diagnose disorders. So if you have been ignored by one doctor too many, try to find a doctor in a medical school."

"On the average, the patients reported having twelve episodes of symptoms over the four-month study period. In general, people reported their symptoms to be moderately severe during these episodes, with pain and bloating lasting an average of five days and altered bowel habits up to two days. Most patients cycled back and forth between a few days with symptoms and a few days without symptoms. The effect these symptoms have on quality of life is considerable."

"For comparison, marketing expenditures in France and England, which don't allow DTC advertising, went down 4 percent annually during the same period. Between 1991 and 2003, spending on DTC ads in the United States increased 58-fold, reaching $3.2 billion per year. During the same years, drug industry profit margins have skyrocketed from about 12 percent of revenues (net of all research and development expenses) in 1991 to 18 percent of revenues in 2001, while the rest of the Fortune 500 industries averaged 5 percent or less."

"For a period of time, you must have ridiculous willpower. Focus your awareness on the most predominant subtle energetic sensation, no matter what you start experiencing. Like a heat-seeking missile, find the different negative energies, while keeping outrageously SHARP awareness, every millisecond, even when heart-thumping FEAR bears its teeth, as you face these energies head on. It is easy to avoid and lose awareness. Once again, for a certain period of time you focus ?!Moment!After!Moment! !Instant!After!Instant! ?continuing to meditate, no matter what happens."

"If the patient cannot tell me the drug has definitely helped reduce pain at the end of a six-week trial period, I will discontinue its use. Six weeks is long enough to know whether a drug has had a beneficial effect, and it can be pointless—or in some cases even detrimental—to continue taking a drug unnecessarily. Many chronic pain sufferers first arrive in my office with a suitcase full of medicines, unclear on how long they've been taking them or whether to keep on using them. In that case, I start slowly removing medicines, one at a time."

"After a brief period of clear skies, dark clouds could be seen gathering on the horizon. THE DIMINISHING ROLE OF PRIMARY CARE DOCTORS Comparisons both within the United States and between countries show that access to comprehensive, family-oriented primary care service is the distinguishing characteristic of health care systems that are both effective at producing good health and efficient at controlling costs. Nonetheless, American medicine has become heavily dominated by specialty care over the past 40 years."

"Then, before her period (beta-endorphin levels are at their lowest in women just before menstruation), Nancy starts feeling absolutely driven to get ice cream. She is sitting at her desk at work and the idea of chocolate chips and vanilla ice cream grabs her and won't let go. No, I am on a diet, she tells herself. Nancy goes home and her boyfriend calls. She is crabby. They have a fight. She gets into the car and drives to the convenience store at eleven at night. She buys a pint of Rocky Road ice cream and starts eating it in the car with a plastic spoon she keeps in her glove compartment."

"When an athlete performs, the nerves that signal to the muscles along a particular pathway are stimulated and the chemicals that have been produced remain there for a short period. Any future stimulation along the same pathways is made easier by the residual effects of the earlier connections. We get better at physical tasks because our signaling from intention to action has already been forged. It is not unlike a train track laid down through wild, inhospitable country. Future performances improve because your brain already knows the route and follows the track already laid down."

"Then he turned the magnet over so that the south pole faced upward under the jar for the same period. When ordinary water is exposed to this kind of weak magnet, which has a field strength of less than 500 gauss, the pH will be the same, no matter which side of the magnet is exposed to the water. The world as we know it is magnetically symmetrical. Quantum physicists speak in terms of gauge theory and symmetry to explain the relationships between forces and particles, which include electric and magnetic charge."

"The subjects are told to reflect on their general sense of well-being, "taking into account your physical, mental, emotional, social, and spiritual condition over the past 24 hours," then mark a point on a horizontal line between "worst you have ever been" on the left and "best you have ever been" on the right that, in their view, represents their overall sense of well-being in the same time period. A number of studies demonstrated that AIOS is a useful, accurate tool for pinpointing emotional wellness and a healthy state of mind."

"Bayberry; she found she needed six capsules of Bayberry a day during her period. She also took a female corrective formula all through the month. The heavy flow slowed to normal the first day and her period lasted only seven days. In a few months, S.'s periods were lasting 4-6 days with a 29 day cycle. After a few months, she was retested and the amount of Bayberry was decreased to three capsules a day during her period.

"In cases where the flow of energy in the body has been strongly dampened over a long period, however, use of this method may cause an increase in pain as energy begins to "enliven" deadened tissues. If this happens to you, know that the pain is temporary and will go away with continued energy healing work. Typically, this will even happen over the course of one treatment session where the pain rises at the start and then lessens by the end, though it sometimes lasts over several sessions. Energy-healing work cannot be harmful."

"Obviously, if a creature makes it through a period of starvation, it can pass along its genes. In Phase 3 of Diet Evolution, you'll learn how to activate these genes-without the starvation! PLANTS AS ALCHEMISTS Now let's learn some lessons from plants. lust because a plant produces juicy fruit that we enjoy eating, that doesn't mean that the plant "thought" up the idea as a way of getting its seeds distributed. Or does it? And how about using substances that affect our brains to get us to do their bidding? Please, that's just ridiculous! Or is it?"

"Imagine that researchers want to study the impact that running a 10-kilometer road race has on women's health over a one-year period. The simplest way to do this would be to set up an observational study. Researchers would wait at the finish line of a local 10K race and ask women if they would be willing to participate in the study. Let's say 100 women sign up."

"Both immediately after the training period and four months later, meditators showed increases in left-side brain activation, a pattern repeatedly linked to greater positivity.37 Another study found that, compared with beginning meditators, advanced meditators reported more self-awareness and acceptance in addition to more positivity.38 Sure enough, openness and positivity go hand in hand. Data from studies like these suggest that efforts to be open, practiced through mindfulness meditation, will indeed raise your positivity. So openness breeds positivity."

"USDA researchers recently found that breeding to "improve" wheat varieties over the past 13 0 years (a period during which yields of grain per acre tripled) had reduced levels of iron by 28 percent and zinc and selenium by roughly a third. Similarly, milk from modern Holstein cows (in which breeders have managed to more than triple daily yield since 1950) has considerably less butterfat and other nutrients than that from older, less "improved" varieties like Jersey, Guernsey, and Brown Swiss."

"For while during the period under analysis, heart attack deaths declined substantially, hospital admissions for heart attack did not. Modern medicine is clearly saving more people suffering from heart disease, but it appears that we haven't had nearly as much success eliminating the disease itself. 'o understand how nutrition science could have been so J. spectacularly wrong about dietary fat and health, it's important to understand that doing nutrition science isn't easy. In fact, it's a lot harder than most of the scientists who do it for a living realize or at least are willing to admit."

"Certain fresh vegetables can be stored for quite a period in a refrigerator and will keep quite well. There are a whole variety to choose from: carrots, celery, radishes, cauliflower, broccoli, peppers, red cabbage, green onions, snow peas, string beans. These can all be cut up and mixed together. They can be stored in a plastic bag or sealed container. When mealtime comes, a person can take a handful of these vegetables and then perhaps add some other ones that don't keep as well, such as tomatoes or sprouts."

"Before that, he had been very, very healthy and had developed well ahead of his milestones, except for a very long period of ear infections, which were treated by an equally long course of antibiotics. Over time, we became more and more concerned about him. At about 18 months, he was diagnosed with severe language delay, meaning that he was not doing anything that the average 18-month-old child does to communicate. Also, he had developed a number of rather bizarre behavioral traits, including spinning and staring at the walls and only playing by himself."

"Often called "thrifty genes," these genes anticipate another period of scarcity and want to ensure that when it comes, the hungriest offspring with the largest fat stores will survive. GENES FOR HIRE Neglecting or flaunting these three principles, particularly not competing with your offspring, activates a second tier of genetic programming, made up of "killer genes." Let me assure you, this is not a theory. Scientists have known about the behavior (if not the actual existence) of these genes for years."

"Society enters a period of social and political crisis. Then comes the Macroshift's final phase. The bifurcation of society's evolutionary trajectory is launched by energy- and material-transforming "hard" technologies but it is not decided by them. In deciding the outcome of a bifurcation, the critical factors are information-processing "soft" technologies that are knowledge-intensive and value-sensitive. These are the technologies of social, economic, and political organization, and they express and define the civilization that dominates society."

"Since then an impressive number of cases of conscious experiences have been reported by patients who, for a brief period, were clinically dead. In studies carried out in major hospitals in Holland and England, nearly one fourth of the patients who suffered serious but not fatal heart attacks gave evidence of having had some form of consciousness with distinct perceptions during the time their EEG was flat. Physicians Pirn van Lommel, Peter Fenwick, Sam Farnia, and B."

"Once you've done so, complete a Positivity Self Test, rating each of the ten negative and ten positive emotional states for that particular period. To catalog the various circumstances of your day, it helps to record a few key facts about the episode, such as where you were, what you were doing, and whether you were alone or interacting with others. Scoring Your Day Reconstruction You score your Day Reconstruction much as you score the Positive Self Test. Tally the positive items and the negative items, and divide the former by the latter."
