"They have forgotten how to play. Play takes practice. It doesn't happen by itself, and playfulness is the secret source of vitality that children access every moment. play is great therapy. Cultivate playfulness in your everyday life. Take dancing lessons. Make a snowman. Roll down a hill with a kid. Do something every day with no other goal than to enjoy yourself. Have fun! It's good for your health. That's it! That's the six-week plan. You now have all the information you need to stop falling for all the myths of modern medicine."

"It is a way for management to deal with players who take drugs (and no matter what it is called, being put in treatment and forbidden to play is a punishment), it provides the team and the player an excuse for the player's misconduct, and it allows everyone to go back to business after a respectable time, when treatment is over. If the player doesn't quit drugs or booze until after disappearing from sports, like Thomas "Hollywood" Henderson (football) and Derek Sanderson (hockey), graduating treatment gives them post-athletic careers as drug and alcoholism experts."

"I've been playing hockey since the 1920s, and I'm still a good enough skater and stick handler to play recreational hockey every Monday night with people half my age and younger," says Walker, the oldest registered female hockey player in Canada. "I just love this game." In a game that requires quick feet, quick thinking, and quick reactions, she is still swift enough to play—and win. "My reflexes are still real fast, and hockey has helped keep them that way," says Walker, who plays center for Mickey's Mares of Bala, Ontario. "

"Such an ability is so great that we can compare it to learning to play an instrument (piano, for example); the highest goal is the supreme mastery in "playing" one's own breathing on a wave of deep personal inspiration (literally, inspiring inside). I advise you to study and constantly use this "breathing issue," studying either from specific books or directly, from your own experience with professional teachers of Rebirthing, Vivation, and Pranayama yoga."

"Now they hardly get to play at all. Too many kids are experiencing a constant demand for performance. They're at school all day and then go straight to organized sports. Parents who run these programs stress competition that's supposed to prepare kids for an adult world. Little kids playing soccer are being sized up with statistics fed into the coach's laptop computer. And then the kids go even faster because they think play should be extreme like they see on TV. It's way too much." For children and adults alike, the world is speeding up."

"We had just seen the play at the Shaw Festival in Niagara, Canada. We laughed, recognizing that like all good humor, the dialogue's fruit had an ineluctable kernel of truth. At home, we found this gem in the play's preface. To offer me a doctor as my judge, and then weight his decision with a bribe of a large sum of money and a virtual guarantee that if he makes a mistake it can never be proved against him, is to go wildly 43 beyond the ascertained strain which human nature will bear."

"Furthermore, AGEs play a major role in the aging process as well as in diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, kidney disease, cancer, Alzheimer's disease, and certain types of neuropathy. Our primary focus is on the relationship of AGEs and ALEs to diabetes and complications of the disease. For the sake of simplicity, we will refer to AGEs and ALEs collectively as glycotoxins throughout the book. Glycotoxins and Diabetes The role of glycotoxins in diabetes is especially significant."

"ALMONDS Almonds may also play a role in controlling diabetes. In a study75 involving twenty free-living individuals, researchers examined the effect of 100 grams (about 3.5 ounces) of almonds a day. Researchers found that LDL and total cholesterol levels decreased while glycemic control did not change. In the crossover arm of this study, total and LDL cholesterol decreased 21 and 23 percent, respectively, and glycemic control was unaffected. This study shows that almonds can be incorporated into a healthful diet without negatively affecting glycemic control while also lowering cholesterol."

"Metals such as cadmium, mercury, arsenic, lead, fluoride,51 and possibly aluminum may play a role in the actual destruction of beta cells through stimulating an auto-immune reaction to them after they have bonded to these cells in the pancreas. It is because mercury52 and lead attach themselves at highly vulnerable junctures of proteins that they find their great capacity to provoke morphological changes in the body. Changes in pancreatic function are among the pathogenetic mechanisms observable during lead intoxication."

"Estrogen and progesterone probably play important roles in the development of lupus. Estrogen combined with interferon spurs D-cells to develop into activated inflammatory cells rather than staying naive and tolerant. But lupus probably has its earliest origins during fetal development and/or childhood, when many scavenger cells are primed with self-evidence. At puberty, the rise in estrogen levels, combined with continued vitamin D deficiency, leads to rapid expansion of these scavenger populations primed to activate T-cells against self-evidence."
- James Dowd and Diane Stafford, The Vitamin D Cure (Get the book.)

"This information suggests that vitamin D and diet play important roles in fetal development and future risk for metabolic syndrome. If you are born with risk for metabolic syndrome, this dicey heritage may be carried to fruition if you fail to get enough sun or physical activity and you take in too many of the taboo foods: grains, cheese, and salt. Large-population studies in the United States and Norway tell us that people who fail to get enough vitamin D will increase their chances of having high blood pressure, obesity, and diabetes."

- James Dowd and Diane Stafford, The Vitamin D Cure (Get the book.)

"Experts believe that low D levels probably play a role in the progression of dementia. A person in the late stages of Parkinson's disease also may have dementia that's much like that seen in Alzheimer's disease. The dysfunctional movements of Parkinson's disease point to the source of the problem in an area at the base of the brain that coordinates movement. This region of the brain has a very high concentration of vitamin D receptors. Specialized cells in this area produce the neurotransmitter dopamine."

"Theories based on migration data suggest that an infectious agent may play a role in causing MS, but it's probably a combination of these factors. The Nurses Health Study (Harvard University, 2004) showed a 40 percent reduction in the risk of MS among nurses whose intake of supplemental vitamin D was at least 400 IU per day. These results were confirmed in a 2006 study of U.S. military personal, when Harvard University researchers found that D levels at or above 40 in subjects younger than twenty years had the greatest impact on risk reduction."

"Now that you know how unconscious beliefs can play out, it makes sense to take a look at the relationships of everyday life to reveal your own deeply held beliefs. Let's begin with love. What follows will help you to be very clear about where you are in relationship to this vital force in your life. The three questions I'm about to pose to you may appear so simple at first that you might wonder why I would even ask them. And while they are obvious, in our busy lives we sometimes overlook the obvious in our effort to find fast answers and quick solutions."

"Minerals play a very important role, and we see specific deficiencies of magnesium, manganese, zinc, chromium, vanadium, and potassium in diabetic patients. These deficiencies could be a result of the blood hyperosmolality and the minerals being lost with excessive urination, in an attempt to get the sugar out of the system. There may be other reasons as well."

"In fact, glycotoxins from the diet play a major role in glycation-induced damage in kidney failure, according to important research. The study shows that restricting the amount of glycotoxins in the diet leads to reduced levels of these damaging substances in the bloodstream, which in turn reduces glycation-induced damage in the kidneys. How Kidney Damage Occurs When kidneys function normally, they filter toxins from the blood and maintain a healthy balance between water and salts in the body."

"While you're thinking, ask yourself these questions: What role did I play to get myself here? How did I arrive at this precise place in this precise moment? Then consider how time, space, energy, and matter have all converged in a mysterious and precious way to bring you to this very moment, and ask: Is it just an accident? Are you merely a fluke of biology, energy, and matter that just happened to converge in this instant? If your answer to this question is No! then you're really going to like what comes next."

"Your improved health will make it possible for you to be more productive at work and at play. You will look better, feel better, and be better able to enjoy sexual activity. Whatever you enjoy—sports, travel, entertainment, exercise, work, or family, your renewed health and vigor will enhance that enjoyment. Your memory and intelligence will stay strong as you age, and you will experience a more enjoyable life. Putting knowledge into practice Just as you cannot expect to develop a perfect tennis swing or learn how to play a musical instrument without both good instruction Dear Dr."

"With whom} Paul Duty didn't consist of play dates. Ordinary family life was over, practically before it had begun. Then one night Wesley was channel-surfing and came across a scene of a child staring hypnotically at water running out of a faucetlike Paul! It was a segment on Cable News Network. The moment it was over, Wesley hurried to his computer, dialed-up the relatively new Internet, and typed in A-U-T-I-S-M. "Lynne. You've gotta look at this! I think Paul has autism." Autism?" Lynne vaguely recalled hearing about autism in nursing school."

"Looks. play. Paul was still Paul, struggling to stay alive inside the solitary confinement of his own mind-and he was beginning to occasionally come outside of himself. Paul had first seen me in the summer, when he was three, and by Halloween he was cognizant enough to go to the door and hand out candy. Lynne was thrilled by this simple act of normalcy. Shortly after that she and Paul drove up for another office visit. He still looked lost, and he couldn't converse. His belly was bloated, and his diarrhea, which had abated, was back. He was fidgety, stimmy, and his eyes wandered aimlessly."

"Years later, he would have no recollection of what it had been that he had wanted to play that day-maybe, hide 'n' seek, his favorite game. Anything. He just wanted to feel good, for once. So he started formulating his request to stay outside. He knew he should ask nicely, because this was no time to get ignored by speaking in baby talk or bad-boy talk-and besides, he loved Megan. She was his teacher. He framed his ideas carefully, paused thoughtfully: Hauled off and smashed his fist into the side of Megan's head. Kyle felt good. He was finally learning to express himself!"

"Even so, Eric would try to play catch with Kyle, and Kyle would just watch the ball bounce off his chest, with that funny, sideways glance of his. Eric would tell Kyle the story of Jonah and the Whale ten times in a row, then ask Kyle what the story was about, and get a response along the lines of, "Joe ate a fish. Candy lunch!" The therapy was slow-going, and when it was time to establish consequences with the stand-up/sit-down routine, Eric worried that they were going off the deep end."

"In fact one week later I could play guitar again! Now I've bought some brand new equipment and I'm playing even better than I used to. Based on my experience I think BioAstin is brilliant. I would recommend it to anyone that has any kind of pain (like I had) to try this first. I cannot thank you enough. (Clive Cable, Steepleton, Dorchester, England) Injury Recovery/Recovery from Exercise In March 2000, I was in a rear end vehicle collision which occurred at a highway speed of 55 mph."

"Of course, Astaxanthin's role as an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory must play a part. A study conducted at the Hokkaido University Graduate School of Medicine determined that Astaxanthin inhibited inflammation in the eye by blocking nitric oxide synthase (Ohgami, et al, 2003). Astaxanthin was also found to have potent antioxidant effects in the prevention of cataracts in rats' eyes (Wu, et al, 2002). In addition, the increased blood flow to the retina surely plays a part. The final, yet very significant mechanism is improved accommodation amplitude."

"It is likely that probiotics play a role in these digestive ailments. Research into the positive effects of probiotics on diarrhea, irritable bowel disease, ulcerative colitis, pouchitis and Crohn's disease offers promise as a method to relieve some of the burden these diseases place on society. There are many health benefits offered by probiotics to the host: improved digestion, immunity and health. However, it is important to realize that each probiotic species is different and thus has different abilities and effects on human health. Each probiotic species has its own health effects."

"Evidence also suggests that probiotics play an important role in controlling immune reactions throughout the body. Asthma Problems with the immune system in infancy are not only associated with atopic dermatitis but also with asthma, another atopic disease. Asthma is one of the most common chronic diseases of childhood and the most common causes of school absenteeism. Asthma is inflammation of the bronchial tubes causing airway obstruction, chest tightness, coughing and wheezing. Asthma commonly develops in people with a history of atopic dermatitis."

"Heavy metals appear to play a role in high cholesterol as well. They poison the enzymes of reverse cholesterol transport. From Dr. Roberts's Oral Chelation Files Kathy was one of my first DetoxMaxPlus patients. She was seventy-six when I first saw her, with multiple risk factors including high blood pressure. Previously, she had sustained a minor heart attack. Her angiogram showed severe disease in all three coronary arteries. Bypass surgery was recommended, but Kathy wanted to explore other approaches first."

"He makes time to exercise and play with his kids. He avoids sugar and processed foods while eating plenty of good protein and healthy fats from olive oil, walnuts, and almonds. Plus he takes niacin (vitamin B-3), a fabulous supplement for raising HDL. When Dr. Sinatra first saw Lou, his HDL level was 31. At a recent checkup it was 68. Niacin has been a pillar of our supplement program for years. Lars Carlson of the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm calls niacin a "miracle drug" for all the lipid disorders that are risk factors for atherosclerosis."
