"After you've meditated for a few minutes and calmed down, practice a visualization. See your body as made of healing light. Imagine the light penetrating and healing every cell in your body. If you are sick, focus the light on the diseased area. • practice Affirmation. What we say matters. We all know, for example, someone who uses the word "afraid" all the time. As in: "I'm afraid I won't be able to go tonight." ? "I'm afraid I've eaten too much; I'm absolutely stuffed." "I'm afraid I'm almost out of gas." etc. • Is it any wonder that eventually they're afraid all the time?"

"Each was invited to participate in three experiments, and both improved with practice. The first scientist correctly identified a child's merry-go-round and a bridge, and the second correctly picked up a windmill. Of the five experiments, three were direct hits and one a near miss.1? When the CIA's test studies worked, Puthoff and Targ began gathering up ordinary volunteers, some naturally gifted, but unpracticed in remote viewing, some not."

"Over the past two decades, I have worked as a nutritionist in conventional and integrative medical centers and in private practice. I've helped patients recover from multiple drug addictions; reverse heart disease; prevent and fight cancer; improve mental, physical, and sexual performance, even when challenged with diseases including multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's, and Alzheimer's; and become pregnant—all through good nutrition practices."

"In these early days of my practice, in addition to prescribing standard medication, I began to apply comprehensive programs of dietary modification, nutritional supplementation, stress management, detoxification, and lifestyle alteration, and I started to get far better results. I was finally achieving notable clinical successes against complex, chronic, intractable conditions, such as fibromyalgia, asthma, recurrent infections, and chronic fatigue syndrome."

"In my practice, at least 60 percent of children with autism improve when they go on the gluten-free, casein-free diet, or GF/CF diet. The diet also achieves a high rate of positive response among kids with ADHD and asthma. It is not at all unusual to see major improvements in symptoms within a relatively short time, after children begin the GF/CF diet. The GF/CF diet has become the single most popular dietary intervention for autism, ADHD, and asthma."

"This has happened in my practice, with my patients, many, many times. Now it's your turn. CHAPTER SEVENTEEN THE HEALING PROGRAM Element #1: Nutritional Therapy STARTING YOUR CHILD'S NEW DIET VIRTUALLY ALL CHILDREN ON THE HEALING PROGRAM MUST MAKE significant changes in their diets. Dietary factors invariably play a major role in the onset of symptoms of the 4-A disorders, and alteration of diet can play a primary role in healing. There is no single, one-size-fits-all diet in the Healing Program. The diet must be carefully individualized."

"For the past twenty-five years, he has dealt with complex medical problems by integrating alternative modalities with conventional medicine into a comprehensive integrative medical practice, and for the last eight years he has focused that approach on children with autism spectrum disorders, ADHD, asthma, and allergies. Dr. Bock's Healing Program is at the vanguard of the new biomedical approach to the treatment of children affected by these disorders.

"Since folic acid helps prevent neural-tube defects and protects against preeclampsia, it's become standard practice for U.S. women of childbearing age to take a folate supplement. Health-food stores carry a number of good prenatal vitamins, but you should always check with a professional before making your selection. It's crucial to get the dosage right. (Too much vitamin A, for example, can damage a developing fetus.) In this, as in so many other aspects of pregnancy, a good doctor will guide your decisions. But be careful not to rely too much on vitamins."

"In my own practice, I recommend four essential tiers of testing, moving from the most basic tests to the more uncommon tests. Of course, without obtaining a detailed history and performing a comprehensive physical examination, I cannot recommend which tests you should pursue for your child. That is a decision for you and your doctor to make. I can tell you, however, which ones I generally tend to recommend, after meeting with patients. These tests are as follows: Tier One Testing These tests consist essentially of basic body chemistry profiles."

"The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has estimated that we vaccinate approximately 80 percent of our population, a practice that has greatly reduced the spread of many harmful infectious diseases in our society. Take measles as an example: Before the introduction of the measles vaccine in the United States, there were approximately five hundred thousand reported cases and five hundred deaths annually from the disease. In 1998, there were only one hundred reported cases of measles in the United States. No one can deny that's a dramatic improvement."

"You will learn, practice, and eventually master the technique until it is effortless. Arrival at Phase Four means you are ready to reach for the nutritional pinnacle of excellence! At this level, we make every calorie count. Animal products are reduced to two servings per week. The final cooking technique to master is the art of making green smoothies, also called blended salads. Here you are at peak nutrient density.

"Together, we will practice preparing recipes and eating healthful meals until they become a routine part of your lifestyle. As you progress, you will gradually replace your old way of eating. The best way to fight the temptation to eat unhealthful, low-nutrient food is with two things: knowledge and great tasting meals. If you have the knowledge, but don't like what you are eating, you will ultimately fail. To make sure this doesn't happen, the recipes in Book Two are delicious, filled with many different ingredients and flavors to increase your enjoyment of eating."

"That's largely because cognitive-behavioral therapy is very interactive; you will learn specific techniques during your sessions, practice them during the week, and then report back to your therapist and discuss your experiences with the technique.

"I would go to work, go through the motions, and then go home and not feel like doing anything else," she says. "

"If you are outdoors or in a pool, you will have to count to yourself. practice counting while watching a second hand so you can become accustomed to the rhythm. ?Begin slowly and gradually over a one- to six-week period, depending on your current state of health and fitness. You will gradually increase the intensity of each twenty-second period of intense physical effort over time to reach the level that's right for you. Your doctor can help guide you on how to begin. ?"

"For Lisa, a stress-management program that included daily progressive muscle relaxation practice was a turning point in her life and in how she managed her diabetes. "Within a few weeks of practicing progressive relaxation, I noticed results," she says. "My blood glucose levels improved, and I was starting to sleep better. After a month, my doctor reduced my medication by half, and after three months, I stopped taking it completely. I was so impressed with progressive relaxation that I taught it to my mother, and it's helping her too."

"Rosen went on to emphasize a core practice of green doctors. "Integrative pediatricians," he said, "believe that prevention is better than treatment after the fact. We also believe that using the body's own natural resources is more powerful, and often more effective, than using very specific targeted conventional medications." There are, Dr. Rosen said, no quick fixes in green medicine, no magic pills that take effect overnight. Some integrative pediatricians are searching for healthier ways to treat the symptoms of even the most serious childhood illnesses, like cancer."

"No special props are required; all you need is about ten to fifteen minutes of uninterrupted time to practice the technique, which involves voluntarily and systematically tensing and then relaxing the muscles in your body. We suggest you record the following instructions for progressive relaxation by reading them slowly and leaving a fifteen-second pause between each step. Keep in mind that this exercise is about muscle discernment as well as relaxation. The first few times you do the exercise, you may have some difficulty zeroing in on specific muscles."

"The earliest reported use of probiotics to treat gastrointestinal concerns was in 1955, when Winkelstein compiled a series of case studies from his private practice. He reported resolving constipation or diarrhea problems in 26 patients with daily administration of an unidentified strain of Lactobacillus acidophilus. Unfortunately, it was not until the 1980s that controlled trials were reported. Lactobacillus acidophilus LB was used in the first controlled trial and was found to significantly reduce symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome."

"In the October 22,1997 Infectious Diseases in Clinical practice, Dr. Classen presented more data further substantiating his findings of a vaccine-diabetes connection. He reported that the incidence of diabetes in Finland was stable in children under 4 years of age until the government made several changes in its childhood vaccination schedule. In 1974,130,000 children age 3 months to 4 years were enrolled in a vaccine experimental trial and injected with hepatitis B vaccine or meningococcal vaccine."

"In clinical practice, probiotics are increasingly being used for these purposes. Probiotics may also help the immune system become strong enough to fight off viral infections, a possible factor in atopic diseases. chapter 10 Rescue from Lactose Intolerance A Microscopic View of This Chapter • Food intolerance is different than a food allergy. • Lactose intolerance is the inability to digest lactose. • Probiotics can assist in lactose digestion. • Lactobacilli contain lactase, which helps break down lactose. • Bifidobacteria ferment lactose, which helps with its digestion."

"And one more thing: practice altruism. The Bible reminds us that it's more blessed to give than to receive. By giving, we don't necessarily mean money but kind deeds that help the lives of others. While they feel the generosity, science indicates that the giver receives the biggest dividend. Researchers at the University of Michigan found that giving actually promotes longevity. Receiving, by contrast, had no such effect. They reached this conclusion based on a ten-year follow-up of three thousand men."

"They unclogged and defused arteries, revolutionizing my practice from crisis management to crisis prevention and from illness to health. I saw patients reach levels of healing I could never imagine possible with conventional care alone. Instead of tears of sorrow, I repeatedly witnessed tears of joy. I received hearty hugs from rejuvenated patients. The idea of stabilizing plaque and even reversing it became my obsession—the challenge of a career. I just had to keep connecting the dots and keeping an open mind to new ideas. Dr."

"But the facts are disturbing and question the growing practice of putting young people without CVD on statins for the purpose of prevention. Another point: statin drugs are expensive. They cost around $100 a month. If your risk is low, say 2 chances out of 100 that you will sustain a CVD event, and statin therapy reduces your risk to 1 chance out of 100 (the 50 percent risk reduction rate the drug companies talk about), should you spend $1,200 per year for the rest of your life to take a drug that will not prolong your life?"

"Suppressing your anger makes you feel powerless, and you eat because by chewing on food you avoid a confrontation and the possibility of "biting someone/7 Let's see what this looks like in practice. Powerless Choice Example John, as a child, always felt like his mother was more interested in other things besides him: her magazines, her needlepoint, talking on the phone, going shopping, soap operas, you name it. Feeding him was the only way she offered him any kind of attention. She made his favorite meals and sat down at the table to eat with him. John has been overweight his whole life."

"Once you have your addiction under control, youTl be able to practice the habits of people who stay thin for life. YouTl eat rationally, which means you won't deprive yourself. You won't be hungry. YouTl enjoy food. You'll have your weight under control because you will be eating to fill your biological stomach, not your phantom stomach. That's the goal I want to help you reach. EXERCISE Observe For the next week, instead of focusing on your diet, just focus on finding a pause right before you're about to overeat. Ask yourself what you're feeling. Did something bother you?"

"He initiated me into the practice of acupuncture and gave me a taste of Chinese medical theory. For the first time, I began to understand the connection between emotions, symptoms, diet, and the environment. For the Chinese, there was no such thing as disease, there was simply balance and imbalance. You were either in balance or out of balance. At last, Chinese medicine satisfied my medical curiosity and opened me to a world that drew together all aspects of the human experience. The Chinese system of diagnosis is symptom-based, not system-based."

"I now run a holistic medical practice near Boston, Massachusetts, merging Eastern and Western medicine. Using both systems, I treat women to alleviate their many painful and unpleasant symptoms of perimenopause and menopause. Whereas Western medicine alone has afforded them no relief, I spend much of my time explaining to my patients how hormones can be used safely, and I spend too much time helping them make sense of the myriad of confusing and often terrifying headlines about hormones, menopause, and disease. That's why I wrote this book."

"Medical studies are usually looking for that one cure-all pill for the masses, and doctors too often practice McMedicine, an all-for-one and one-pill-for-all approach. When I graduated from medical school in 1982, all menopausal women were told to take horse estrogen and synthetic progesterone. Then, twenty years later, after the Women's Health Initiative (WHI) study was released in 2002, a panic swept through the medical community, and millions of women were abruptly taken off their horse hormones, leaving them with no safe alternative treatments for their sometimes unbearable symptoms."
