"When patients report that they have to use eyedrops frequently and always need to have a drink nearby because of dry mouth, I send them to a cornea specialist who can measure tear production in the eyes (called a Schirmer's test). While dry eyes are a symptom, low tear production is a sign that allows the ophthalmologist to confirm and actually quantify the symptom. If tear production is low, I send patients for a lip biopsy. And if the biopsy is positive, I ask them to see a rheumatologist. The rheumatologist and I can then work together to help the patient feel better."

"Within Space—Life The first effect of the cosmogonic emanations is the framing of the world stage of space; the second is the production of life within the frame: life polarized for self-reproduction under the dual form of the male and female. It is possible to represent the entire process in sexual terms, as a pregnancy and birth. This idea is superbly rendered in another metaphysical genealogy of the Maoris: From the conception the increase, From the increase the thought, From the thought the remembrance, From the remembrance the consciousness, From the consciousness the desire."

"To understand how plant-based nutrition facilitates nitric oxide production, you need to have a sense of the biochemistry at play. The essential building block for nitric oxide production is a substance called L-arginine, an amino acid that is in rich supply in a variety of plant foods, especially legumes, beans, soy, and nuts. Figure 6 shows, schematically, how L-arginine fits neatly into the enzymatic action of nitric oxide synthase, which then produces nitric oxide from the arginine and oxygen."

And if the biopsy is positive, I ask them to see a rheumatologist. The rheumatologist and I can then work together to help the patient feel better. This may seem like a lot to go through to get to the bottom of chronic fatigue, but it's obviously worth it."

"NAD marshals electrons into the pathway needed to maximize energy production and metabolism; low levels of NAD adversely affect the production of adenosine triphosphate (ATP). Every cell uses oxygen and glucose to convert ADP (adenine diphosphate) and phosphoric acid into ATP, a molecule that slow-drips energy to power most cellular processes. ADP and ATP are the equivalent of chemical energy storage tanks. Each molecule hoards a tiny supply of energy deep within its phosphorus-oxygen bond."

"The amount of labor required to keep those gardens in production is enormous even in good rainfall years. 203 Every African subsistence farmer I have ever talked to is philosophical. He knows that at least once in his lifetime he will suffer from drought and malnutrition. Yet Africans have often triumphed over environmental adversity. They created great kingdoms—Ghana, Mali, Zimbabwe—traded indirectly with the far corners of the earth, and fashioned great art and flamboyant cultures. But many have always lived on the edge."

"Automobile production quadrupled annually between 1945 and 1955. Low mortgage rates (designed particularly to make home ownership affordable for returning serviceman) fueled a housing boom. Many of the houses in question were built in the new suburbs, where they encouraged a lifestyle organized around the nuclear family and material comfort. Nevertheless, for many Americans these developments had produced less happiness than might have been expected. The 1950s was not just an era of television and two-car garages; it was also, as many historians have observed, the "age of anxiety."

"It also helps boost the immune system, stimulating the production of interferon and the activity of macrophages (important defense cells in our immune system). Chlorella is the best algae for pulling heavy metals out of the system, particularly mercury, lead, cadmium, uranium, and arsenic—all known to be diabetogenic. The antiviral effects of chlorophyll and CGF have also been found beneficial in cases of blood sugar imbalances such as diabetes because chlorella's digestible protein smoothes blood sugar fluctuations."

"No doubt if a wayward antihypertensive drug happened to rein-vigorate the production of pigment by hair follicles, as one happens to "cure" balding, its manufacturer would be quick to petition the fda for licensing. The drug would be eagerly marketed as the "cure" for graying. It is even likely that new subsections of august dermatology societies would form to discuss the breakthrough. Competing pharmaceutical firms would race to synthesize "me too" drugs that would pass muster at the fda at least in terms of convenience if not effectiveness."

"Alaric's production of the Lex Romana Visigothorum, which granted his subjects the same legal rights as Theodosius had granted his own in 438, was very likely the tipping point of influence on Justinian's ambitions for legal reform. Bad enough that a barbarian army had supplanted a Roman one in Roman territory, but far worse that they might supplant Roman law as well. In 528, accordingly, Justinian sponsored his First Law Commission, headed by John the Cappado-cian and including Tribonian."

"The coincidence in timing—between a medical community turning a blind eye to a mysterious, growing set of diseases with an unknown set of triggers and a society's rapid swell in production of everything from SUVs to Teflon pans to furniture stuffed with flame-retardant foam—would turn out to be an ominous one, altering the well-being of millions of Americans. Together, these two seemingly unrelated trends would set in place two of the key factors that would establish a "perfect storm" enabling an autoimmune epidemic to gather force and take hold."
- Donna Jackson Nakazawa, The Autoimmune Epidemic (Get the book.)

"Steven Weber, with his 1997 article "The End of the Business Cycle" in the public policy journal Foreign Affairs, argued that macroeconomic risks were lower now: "Changes in technology, ideology, employment and finance, along with the globalization of production and consumption, have reduced the volatility of economic activity in the industrialized world. For both empirical and theoretical reasons in advanced industrial economies the waves of the business cycle may be becoming more like ripples." Weber presented a number of reasonable-sounding arguments."

"Other common sources of TCE runoff range from dry-cleaning companies to airplane and machine manufacturers, where TCE is used in stripping metal parts, to leather production, as well as through household use of everything from paint thinners and strippers to many glues and adhesives. (Travel back again through Becky's day and think of her paint stripping and gluing projects, her dry cleaning hanging on her closet door, and the traces of TCE in the water in her afternoon tea and you get the gist of just how pervasive our exposure to TCE is."
- Donna Jackson Nakazawa, The Autoimmune Epidemic (Get the book.)

"Gilbert and Pumford wanted to find out whether TCE might stimulate the production of an autoimmune response and, if so, see what cells might be involved. As is standard in this sort of research, they used a machine known as a flow cytometer to examine the surface of cells from the mouse, taken from immune-system organs such as the lymph nodes and the spleen. The flow cytometer uses a laser to light up cells if the cells express certain markers that should not, in normal circumstances, be present on the T cells."

"PCBs, like plastic additives such as bisphenol A (BPA) and common pesticides, are endocrine-disrupting chemicals that have been shown in numerous lab studies to stimulate increased production of autoantibodies—antibodies against self—which are the hallmark of autoimmunity in action. Indeed, as we have seen in the previous chapter, the science demonstrating the way in which estrogen disruptors such as PCBs promote autoimmune disease is emerging with profoundly disturbing conclusions."

"In particular, hyperglycemia can cause excess production of superoxide. Oxidative stress, in turn, stimulates the development and progression of diabetes and the complications associated with it. Other situations that promote oxidative stress in prediabetes and diabetes include: ?hyperinsulinemia (elevated insulin levels) ?elevated fasting and postmeal (postprandial) levels of triglycerides and cholesterol stress ?"

"There is another delicate enzyme with a formidable name—dimethyl arginine dimethyl amino hydrolase, or DDAH—that destroys ADMA, in order to favor production of nitric oxide. But the usual cardiovascular risk factors (high cholesterol, high triglycerides, high homocysteine, insulin resistance, hypertension, and tobacco use) all impair the ability of that delicate enzyme to destroy ADMA. NO (Nitric oxide) Nitric oxide synthase CrnZI DDAH (Dimethylarginine dimethylaminohydrolase) Oxidative stress and all \ / major cardiovascular risk factors /\ destroy DDAH Figure 6."

"Antiinflammatory strategies are important for fighting the damage caused by glycation and the production of inflammatory substances (cytokines) that can lead to endothelial vascular damage. Glycotoxins derived from foods cooked with intense heat under dry conditions contribute to both oxidative damage as well as inflammation."

"This consequently blocks or destroys beta cell production of insulin. This is not new information. In 1992 the New England Journal of Medicine reported a study done in Finland on children ages 4-12. They measured the antibodies in these children against BSA (bovine serum albumin). Of the 142 children with juvenile diabetes every one one had an antibody titer greater that 3.55 and not one of the 79 nondiabetic children had an antibody titer greater than 3.55."

"You can improve this condition by using enzymes to aid digestion, balance pH levels to regulate acid production, and increase amino acid availability to support overall adrenal health."

"There are three key areas of possible imbalance in the body that can affect the production of digestive and metabolic enzymes, cause one or more health crises, and potentially shorten our life span—immune system imbalances, pH imbalances, and bacterial (or microflora) imbalances. As mentioned in chapter 1, disease is essentially an imbalance that the body cannot correct due to the demand placed upon it. Though the health crisis may ultimately be the result of an enzyme deficiency, there are contributing factors that we do well to consider."

"Heavy Metal Cleanse (Optional) Since the Industrial Revolution, production and distribution of heavy metals have rapidly accelerated, so that the air, water, and topsoil of the planet have become permeated with them. These metals tend to persist and accumulate in the environment (and in our bodies!), for they cannot be degraded or destroyed. Today heavy metals are extensively used as components of countless consumer products, though the consumer is generally unaware of their presence in the seemingly harmless product."

"Not Just a Man's Mineral Zinc has something of a reputation in the men's health magazines as a "guy's" nutrient, largely because it is critical for the production of both sperm and the male hormone testosterone. (Little fun fact: The reasons oysters are thought to be such a "sexy" food—even an aphrodisiac— is that they're loaded with zinc.) And the normal human prostate gland has a higher level of zinc than any other soft tissue in the body, compared to cancerous prostates, which have a lot less zinc than normal ones. Then there's the infertility connection."

"Northern European vineyards went out of production between 1300 and 1310. Between 1313 and 1317, a series of exceptionally wet and unusually cold summers caused widespread crop failures and famine that killed thousands of people. There were outbreaks of cannibalism, and entire villages were abandoned or their populations decimated. The wet, cool summers and disastrous harvests undermined the viability of many small farming villages. Thirty years later the Black Death savaged Europe. Many of the hardest hit were those weakened by earlier famines."

"When those aren't enough, we turn to prescription drugs that block the production of stomach acid even longer than their over-the-counter cousins. Prevacid and Nexium are among the five top-selling prescription drugs in the country, and heartburn drugs are now among the most widely prescribed medications in the United States, producing more than $13 billion in sales in 2004. But consistently taking acid suppressors like heartburn drugs over time as a way of managing symptoms is a really, really horrendous idea. (Don't kill the messenger here."

"In the exceptionally cold 1967 growing season, for example, hay production fell by one-fifth, with yields of 870 kilograms less per hectare than normal. Experts have calculated that a temperature deviation of one degree Celsius from the 1901-1930 norm of 3.2 degrees Celsius reduces the carrying capacity of the land by 30 percent. Despite modern farming practices, the Icelandic government still has to purchase and transport hay in cold years, at enormous expense."

"Agriculture Figure 4: Sugar production and consumption in India, China, and the U.S., 2005-2006 ASIA DIABETES IN ASIA India has the largest diabetic population in the world, with an estimated 40.9 million Type-2 diabetics, or 8 percent of the adult population. The WHO predicts that deaths from diabetes in India will increase by 35 percent over the next ten years. In China, the number of people with Type-2 diabetes is likely to reach 50 million in the next twenty-five years. What we are looking at is a trend toward diabetes in Asian countries. We do not have to look far to understand why."

"Exercise releases chemicals like IGF-1, which in turn ramps up production of another chemical called brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF). Ratey calls BDNF the "Miracle-Gro for the brain." The hippocampus is particularly responsive to the effects of BDNF, and exercise seems to act as the ultimate antiag-ing drug for this critical brain area. People who exercise a few times a week seem to develop Alzheimer's later than those who don't, and sometimes not at all. How Much Exercise Do I Really Need? So if exercise is really such incredible medicine, what exactly is the dose?"

"Numerous herbs working together synergistically provide the above effects, one of the most important of which is stimulating bile production and flow. You'll recall that bile is the fluid secreted by the liver and discharged to the small intestine, where it plays a critical role in the proper digestion of food, especially fats and proteins. It contains many used body substances such as salts, acids, hormones, cholesterol, mucus, fat, dead red blood cells, toxins, and other cellular debris."
