"With that clear picture, you're in an ideal position to dig deep until you uncover one or more of the primary emotions you're experiencing as a result of the problem. The primary emotions are sadness, anger, fear, and joy. They're clear, unencumbered signposts of what you're truly feeling. If you identify feelings like anxiousness, surprise, jealousy, or worry, try again. These secondary emotions are either a "lite" version of a primary emotion or a blurry synthesis of two or more of them, which will divert you from the straightforward path of healing."

"In 2006, scientist Del Giudice and colleagues stated, "In clinical trials probiotics appear to be useful for the treatment of various clinical conditions such as food allergy, atopic dermatitis and allergic rhinitis and in primary prevention of atopy. We can hypothesize that it may be possible, in the future, to use probiotics in primary prevention of asthma." Asthma (TIPS)."

"The three reasons you should measure your PTH and calcium are to identify 1. primary hyperparathyroidism; 2. other causes of high blood calcium levels; and 3. dietary imbalance and deficiencies. Primary hyperparathyroidism comes from a tumor of the parathyroid gland that overproduces PTH. This often causes high calcium levels that will soar higher if you begin supplementing vitamin D and/or calcium. You need to correct this problem before you replace vitamin D or calcium. If you have a parathyroid tumor, you probably will be referred to a head and neck surgeon, who can remove this tumor."

"These secondary emotions are either a "lite" version of a primary emotion or a blurry synthesis of two or more of them, which will divert you from the straightforward path of healing. If at all possible, go for the underlying, clear-cut, root feeling. For instance, after a troubling health diagnosis the anxiety you feel may be a combination of underlying fear and anger. Or it could be masking sadness. The primary emotion will set the direction you take in the following two phases of Recasting. If you need help, try talking with another person."

"Statement 2 helps you see that the things you often expect from others are the very qualities that you considered good or positive in your primary caretakers. So it's not surprising that the expressions of love, nurturing, caring, and thoughtfulness that you look for in your most intimate relationships are what you perceived as positive early in life. They were beneficial to you then, and you still see them that way as an adult. You believe that they're good and that those who possess these qualities are good people. ?"

"A sampling of the terms from any program shows nearly identical words describing our primary caretakers: Distant Controlling Unavailable Critical judging Jealous Strict Mean Cold Fearful Dishonest Unfair There's a lightness that fills the room, and everyone begins to laugh at what they see. If we didn't know better, we'd think we all came from the same family. How can so many people from such diverse backgrounds have such similar experiences? The answer to this mystery is the pattern that runs deeply in the fabric of our subconscious beliefs."

"This includes the things that we later recognize as the good, the bad, and the ugly—the judgments, biases, likes and dislikes, and behavior patterns of those around us, especially our primary caretakers. It may be precisely because of this impressionable state of mind that the founder of the Jesuit order, Ignatius of Loyola, stated, "Give me a child until he is 7, and I will give you the man."

"The problem can occur in either of the two stages of bone mineralization. The primary phase, which takes weeks to months, marks the time when calcium and magnesium are added to the collagen framework. Secondary mineralization, which takes months to years, is supposed to create strong, stable bone, but high bone turnover can cut short that secondary mineralization, leaving bone that's not structurally stable. If the bone is lacking in structural stability, it can bend or warp (rickets) or be brittle and break easily (osteomalacia and osteoporosis)."

"Speculation is that the poor brain circulation caused by diabetes is a primary factor. An eight-year study out of Kaiser Permanente tracked 22,582 patients age 50 or above with Type-2 diabetes, and found that diabetic individuals with high blood sugar experience an increased risk of dementia and Alzheimer's. Compared to those with normal glycosylated hemoglobin levels (HgbAlc less than 6), those with HgbAlc levels greater than 12 were 22 percent more likely to develop dementia, and those with HgbAlc levels above 15 were 78 percent more likely to develop dementia."

"Most are primary sources of information, which include hundreds of other researchers' scientific publications, spanning many decades, that support a nutritional approach to diabetes reversal. Some of the statistics on diabetes and research findings vary. For example the Centers for Disease Control estimates 21 million pre-diabetics in the U.S. and the American Diabetic Association estimates 54 million. I have chosen to include the variances, rather than to average. The variations show the state of the knowledge and should not be interpreted as contradictions."

"You may recall from high school biology that the mitochondria is nicknamed the "powerhouse of the cell" because its primary function is to generate ATP, that complex energy substrate generated by the Krebs cycle (a long chemical process I hope you never had to memorize for a test question!). I serendipitously came to learn that preserving the mitochondrial adenosine triphosphate (ATP) in our precious heart cells was really the answer in sustaining the pulsation of cells and life itself. Dr. Rinse started making more and more sense to me."

"Cleave concluded, as we have, that the introduction of refined carbohydrates into a culture was the primary, but not sole, cause of the dramatic increase in diabetes. Other underlying causes include increased consumption of cooked animal fats and trans fats, heavy metals, agrochemicals, vitamin D deficiencies, mineral and vitamin deficiencies in general resulting from a diet of nutrient-poor processed foods, and hormonal imbalances and deficiencies such as a deficiency in testosterone. Lifestyle habits also play a role—obesity, emotional stress, inadequate sleep, and lack of exercise. Dr."

"The third primary energy consumer (after contraction and relaxation) with respect to cardiac pulsation has to do with maintaining the ion balance of the heart. The proper flow of ions into and out of the heart is required to keep the heart cell from filling with water (cardiac edema) and to maintain the normal electrochemical gradient on the cell membrane. It's this electrochemical gradient that allows the heart to pulsate, maintaining normal sinus rhythm. When the electrochemical gradient is disrupted, irregular ("skipped") or dysfunctional heartbeats may be the result."

"Along with ethnicity, the primary risk factor is obesity, accompanied by a lack of physical activity. Other risk factors for childhood development of type 2 diabetes include a family history of the disease, puberty, female gender, and being born to a mother who had diabetes. It is especially critical that we reverse the progression of the disease in children and adolescents, because the presence of the disease exposes them to additional decades of damage from elevated blood glucose levels and glycation."

"Of the three types of nutrients (proteins, carbohydrates, fats) metabolized by the body for energy and growth, carbohydrates and fats are the primary sources of energy. Carbohydrates (sugars and starches) are broken down into smaller sugar molecules (glucose) in the intestinal tract and then enter the bloodstream, where they circulate and wait to be transported into cells so they can be used to provide energy. But these sugars can use some help to enter cells, and that assistance comes in the form of a hormone known as insulin."

"A study of 76,000 women enrolled in the Nurses' Health Study from 1980 to 2000 revealed that about 60 percent of all cases of primary open angle glaucoma diagnosed in the United States can be linked to patients with type 2 diabetes. Glaucoma treatment includes eye drops, laser procedures, or surgery. Retinopathy Diabetic retinopathy is a serious eye condition in which the blood vessels in the retina, the light-sensitive lining at the back of the eye, are damaged by glycotoxins and oxidative stress as a result of prolonged, elevated blood glucose levels."

"It's imperative that you stop exposing yourself to this dangerous respiratory irritant, which is one of the primary causes of household poisonings in the United States. Formaldehyde, a carcinogen in humans, can be found in many conventional air fresheners, disinfectants, and spray starches. Exposure to formaldehyde can severely irritate or burn skin, eyes, nose, mouth, throat, and lungs, in addition to triggering skin allergies, asthma attacks, and even pulmonary edema. For more information on formaldehyde in other parts of the house, see page 40."

"Most of us in primary care still advocate breastfeeding as ideally preferable to formula feeding," he wrote to me. "But with the addition of common brand organic formulas with added essential fatty acids and, in some cases, probiotics, the boundaries are blurring. I know this is controversial, but these are real-life questions families are dealing with today." In conclusion, he wrote, "Perhaps the ideal situation is trying to ensure that breast milk is as nontoxic as can be."

"It is also, though, the primary nutritional building block, or precursor, of the main neurotransmitter in the brain that carries thought and memory: acetylcholine. It had been shown to help patients with Alzheimer's and other memory disorders by boosting levels of their thought neurotransmitter, so I believed that it might also help jump-start Kyle's very sketchy memory, which was improving only moderately. Elizabeth told me, with great pride, that Kyle had recently remembered that a big puddle in front of their house had been there the day before."

"Now her primary diagnosis was ADHD with bipolar features. That was a huge improvement. For a while, Alisa's treatment had also included a drug called Risperdal, an antipsychotic medication commonly given to kids with autism and PDD. It also seems to help some ADHD kids, even though it has the opposite action of most ADHD drugs. Most of them bump up the action of the attention neurotransmitter dopamine, but Risperdal drives it down. That didn't really make sense to Liza-or to her doctor, either-and it heightened Liza's distrust of drugs. She thought that ADHD drugs had too many side effects."

"Ritalin seemed to work by enhancing the activity of dopamine, one of the brain's primary neurotransmitters, which is associated with attention, a positive mood, and physical grace. Most doctors had come to believe that almost all kids with ADHD had a deficiency of dopamine activity, and that when it was boosted, the children would feel happier, would be better able to control themselves, and would have longer attention spans."

"Even now, years later, Alisa can remember the primary emotion she was feeling as Liza came to her with open arms: shame, as a hot, sick sensation that seemed to flood her whole body. Alisa still recalls that as the rage had advanced upon her, she had tried to use her words, and had tried to think things through, but it had swept over her like a blinding storm. Alisa reached out. "I'm sorry." "I know. I love you." "I'm just...." Her chest heaved. "A bad person." Alisa began to cry. Her shoulders shook. "You're a wonderful person." Liza held her daughter very closely."

"We can hypothesize that it may be possible, in the future, to use probiotics in primary prevention of asthma." Asthma (TIPS). The TIPS study is based on the hygiene hypothesis, which you have already learned hypothesizes that little or no exposure to bacteria and viruses during a critical period of infancy can lead to problems in the immune system and result in diseases such as asthma. TIPS hopes to determine whether stimulating the immune system with a probiotic supplement, Lactobacillus rhamnosus GG, for the first six months of life can prevent or delay asthma development."

"It's possible that in men, a low secretion of testosterone might be a primary event precipitating insulin resistance. Preliminary research shows that building testosterone to normal values reduces insulin resistance.110 When we add testosterone, it lowers SHBG; and that lowers insulin levels. Lower SHBG improves the testosterone and estrogen ratio. Testosterone also lowers insulin and decreases obesity. So we have a whole other mechanism. Perhaps this is telling us how little we know about the whole hyperinsulinism syndrome, but it gives us a clue."

"As in 130 children, the primary symptoms in adult ADHD are impulsivity, inattention, and hyperactivity. For adults, Ramundo's useful concept is "disregulated activity"—too much or not enough. Some of the more obvious manifestations are "chronic tardiness, argumentativeness, being unable to wait for a traffic light to change, jumping from activity to activity—having 14 projects started and none finished." It is often accompanied by substance abuse and "lots of disorganization," she says, adding, "it is not unusual to see someone hopping from one thing to another, one job to another."

"Many of the growing number of psychiatric conditions listed in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, the primary reference for psychiatrists, were brought to light through funding by the pharmaceutical companies, Parry wrote. For example, few Americans had heard of an illness called panic disorder, he said, before Upjohn began marketing a drug called Xanax to treat it in the 1970s."

"Physicist David Bohm, a leading proponent of the holographic view of the universe, sees the deeper reality, the implicate order—what we would call the dreamtime—as the primary reality that gives birth to our more explicate or physical reality and that the two realities or orders are constantly flowing, blending, and exchanging with one another. Even though on an explicate order level there is seeming separateness, Bohm maintains that, "everything in the universe is part of a continuum, a seamless extension of everything else."

"In a fetus, the heart starts beating before the brain has completely formed; therefore it is a primary organ. When the brain does begin to develop, it does so from the bottom, the location of the primal brain that houses the emotional centers, and moves upward. As Childre describes the process, "the thinking brain grows out of the emotional regions." A beating heart is present far before the brain, and the emotional part of the brain far before the rational part of the brain."

"Plants, particularly the flowers of plants, have evolved as the epitome of sexual display, because their sexual parts are inside the flower, and the plant's primary focus is to attract pollinators to their sexual organs. Many plants have both the male (stamen, which produces pollen) and female (pistil, which contains the ovary with eggs, style, and stigma) parts within the same flower, others have two different flowers on one plant, and others have male plants and female plants."
