"And a third group is depressed and, by the time they reach me, has had the kitchen sink of drugs thrown at them without any real effect. If you're experiencing pain or fatigue, you undoubtedly fall into one of these three groups, so looking at how I treat each of them might help you understand what you can expect from your own physician. Unfortunately, when it comes to depression, doctors are less familiar with the science than with their own past experience. This is especially so when it comes time to prescribe drugs."

"You see your symptoms as real; your doctor looks skeptical and makes a mental note that you're a "crock" or a complainer. Your doctor becomes dismissive, saying that he can't find anything wrong with you, that there is nothing he can do for you, or that your problem is "all in your head." He might tell you just to grin and bear it or even refer you to a psychiatrist. Certainly, he thinks there's "nothing wrong." By dismissing you and, in essence, telling you to take care of yourself, the doctor is abrogating his job."

"Your doctor probably will not do these additional tests unless he or she has had a continuing education course on evaluating patients for 32 YOUR SYMPTOMS ARE real symptoms with no obvious medical cause. (Of course, if you ask your doctor to read this chapter, he or she will be more up to date.) Sjogren's Syndrome or Sjogren's Disease One of the less common diseases I look for is another rheumato-logical ailment, Sjogren's Syndrome, which occurs ten times more often in women than in men."

"Patients reported real symptoms; doctors resorted to the SD diagnosis for reasons that seemed perfectly logical to them but that made no sense to their suffering patients. Instead of medicine being based on fact, this line of thinking is based on opinion without any scientific support. That's not how medicine is supposed to work and is not the kind of "science" that has allowed so many medical advancements over the years. The fact that the definition of somatization is circular and not amenable to scientific testing just leaves me cold."

"In most parts of the world, the real potential of human beings is sadly underdeveloped. The way children are raised depresses their faculties for learning and creativity; the way young people experience the struggle for material survival results in frustration and resentment. In adults this leads to a variety of compensatory, addictive, and compulsive behaviors. The result is the persistence of social and political oppression, economic warfare, cultural intolerance, crime, and disregard for the environment."

"The recognition that climate change-induced dangers are real and need to be combated is growing. A new milestone was reached in December of 2007 when the "Bali roadmap"—a two-year framework for global negotiation adopted at the U.N. climate change convention on the island of Bali—acknowledged that evidence for global warming is "unequivocal" and that delays in reducing greenhouse gas emissions increase the risk of "severe climate change impacts." Although the U.S."

"The choice between extinction and evolution is real. We need to understand how it came about and what it entails. The first thing to understand is that the choice of destiny before us is not accidental: the way the world in which we live develops has a logic of its own. This logic is the logic of evolution, in nature as well as in society. Its hallmark is the alternation of periods of relative stability with epochs of increasing, and ultimately critical, instability. When instability reaches the critical point, the system either collapses or shifts to a new state of dynamic stability."

"In the real world, the playing field is not level and the distribution of wealth is strongly skewed. Not surprisingly, in today's world the poorest 40 percent is left with 3 percent of the global wealth and the wealth of a few hundred billionaires equals the annual income of three billion of the world's poor people. 5. The more you consume the better you are. According to this myth there is a strict equivalence between the size of your wallet and your personal worth as the owner of the wallet."

"Make sure you're getting the real thing! Range and Appearance Wintergreen is a native American evergreen perennial found most often in coniferous forests. The plant reaches a height of about 6 inches. The leaves are oval, leathery, and glossy; they grow in a basal rosette and then alternately. The reddish stem produces an inflorescence of hermaphroditic white flowers with an open cup shape. The berries are red. The plant grows in full sun to partial shade in moist soil. It is excellent as a ground cover or in a rock garden."

"For example, watch out for statements like these on packages: • NATURAL FRUIT FLAVORS • WITH real FRUIT JUICE • ALL NATURAL INGREDIENTS • NO ARTIFICIAL PRESERVATIVES • 100% NATURAL • real FRUIT • NO PRESERVATIVES • NO ARTIFICIAL INGREDIENTS Statements like these do not mean there are no harmful additives in the product or that the products are healthful, they simply mean the manufacturer hopes you'll think there are no harmful ingredients."

"Unfortunately, the political fracas around abortion—and the real risk to workers and patients of clinic violence—has made access to abortion more rather than less difficult in recent times. We must recall that the battle for birth control was nearly as emotional; perhaps someday we will see this struggle resolved as well. In the interim, if you choose an abortion, consult your regular provider first. Gynecologists and family doctors need to realize how many women (1."

"At this point, I did not feel any drug effect, and the experience was as real as any other situation in my life. The door of my parents' bedroom was half-open. I looked in, saw their bodies on the bed, and heard them breathing. I walked to the window in the living room and looked out. The clock on the street corner showed a six-hour difference from the time in Baltimore, where the experiment took place. In spite of the fact that this number of hours reflected the actual time difference between the two zones, I did not find it to be convincing evidence of the veracity of my experience."

"Toward the end of this encounter, he decided to ask his grandmother for proof that the experience was real and not just his imagination. No sooner had he raised this telepathic question than he received the following message: "Go to Aunt Anne and look for cut roses." Still skeptical, he decided on the following weekend, "just for the fun of it," to visit his Aunt Anne's home and see what would happen. To his astonishment, Kurt found upon his arrival his old aunt working in the garden. She was in her gardener's outfit, holding pruning scissors in one hand and a rose in the other."

"I felt that I needed much more convincing proof of whether what I was experiencing was "objectively real" in the usual sense. I finally decided to perform a test—to take a picture from the wall and later check in the correspondence with my parents if something unusual had happened at that time in their apartment. I reached for the picture, but before I was able to touch the frame, I was overcome by an increasingly alarming feeling that it was an extremely risky and dangerous undertaking. I suddenly felt under the attack of evil forces and perilous black magic."

"In a subsequent meditation, I was unexpectedly flooded with a fugue of images representing highlights of my experiences with Monica and Wolfgang, some of them from real life, others from my sessions. The intensity and speed of this review rapidly increased until it reached an explosive climax. It felt as if a giant bubble had burst and my head was suddenly clear. In an instant, I felt a deep sense of resolution and peace. I knew that the karmic pattern was now fully resolved. Monica and I remained friends for the rest of my stay in Baltimore."

"There's some controversy about the real cause of bunions. Some believe that, as with hammertoes, they're proof positive that you've been trying to cram your feet into shoes that are too small, too narrow, or too high-heeled. Others insist that bunions are due to an inherited mechanical imbalance that puts undue stress on the big toe. Most agree Half the women in America .L . i .1 <• . d that both are factors. Bunions can also be an early warning sign that arthritis is just a step or two behind."

"But Charles Bonnet syndrome sufferers—unlike many psychotic individuals—are aware their visions are not real. And their visions are never accompanied by auditory hallucinations, a common sign of psychosis. Rather than losing their mind, people with phantom visions are likely to be losing their eyesight. Indeed, in most cases, phantom visions are signs of poor or deteriorating eyesight or other eye problems, such as glaucoma, cataracts, and especially age-related macular degeneration (AMD)."

"DROOPY EYELIDS While "bedroom eyes" may be sexy, droopy eyelids—medically known as ptosis—can be a real turn-off. Unfortunately, they're usually just another unavoidable sign of aging. As we grow older, the tendon-like tissue on top of the eyes tends to stretch and our eyelids droop. Age-related ptosis typically affects both eyes and is usually nothing to worry about. However, the lids may droop so low they can block a person's vision."

"You may have difficulty falling asleep, and usually there is a real problem falling back to sleep once you are awake. Typically, if your melatonin is low, you will find yourself waking with an anxious feeling in the middle of the night for no good reason. When melatonin is chronically low, people age prematurely, have a lack of ambition, and move more slowly than usual during the day. Concentration and recall are poor, and depression is common. Although melatonin is primarily the hormone of sleep, it does many other things."

"There was nothing she could do on her own that would be of any real help, they asserted. They told her to stick to the medication, and if her condition deteriorated, a heart transplant was her only option. Although frustrated, stressed, despondent, and discouraged, Fran believed that her improvement depended on an integrated approach including vitamin and mineral therapy, some kind of relaxation technique, psychotherapy, energy work, and acupuncture in addition to conventional medicine. She asked for guidance."

"Otherwise she had no real complaints. Her sleep and energy were okay. Her exam was normal, but her blood tests showed a very low RBC magnesium 3.6 (4.2 to 6.8 mg/dL), no anemia but a low-normal ferritin 28 (10 to 300 ng/ml), and a normal thyroid. So Sheila began replacing her magnesium and using a good multivitamin with iron. I recommended that she use vitamin B, with some Chio nese liver herbs and referred her to an acupuncturist in the week or two before her period. She did well on this regimen, but after a few months she came to see me complaining of heavy periods and loose stools."

"And these one-pill fixes don't usually last because the real problem has not been addressed. By getting rid of a symptom, you may feel better temporarily, but over time another symptom or two will emerge to make you miserable, either from a side effect of the very medication you've taken to feel better or from the actual root problem, which is being ignored. I was watching television the other day when an antidepressant advertisement informed me that "seventy percent of all people taking antidepressants are still depressed."

"Although women with breast cancer (and their relatives) tend to have excess 16-OH estrone compared with 2-OH estrone, it is thought that the real problem is too little good 2-OH estrone, not necessarily the presence of 16-OH estrone. This is where cruciferous vegetables are so important. They contain a substance known as indole-3-carbinol, or I3C (discussed in chapter 4), which increases 2-OH estrone and limits 16-OH estrone."

"The relationship between estrogen dominance and weight gain is a very real concern, but there are others as well. Clinical studies conducted in both the United States and Europe link estrogen dominance to many other health risks. For instance, in both men and women, estrogen-related belly fat is a contributing risk factor for developing cardiovascular disease. According to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), women with a waist measurement of more than thirty-five inches and men with a waist measurement of more than forty inches are very likely to be at risk."

"The standard "hormones" prescribed by most doctors are potent synthetic pharmaceutical drugs with frequent side effects and real dangers. When appropriate, we only prescribe natural (bioidentical) hormones in our practices. They are exact chemical replicas of hormones that the body produces. Scientists have discovered how to chemically extract them from plant sources and process them into hormone preparations readily absorbed and utilized in the body. Such natural hormones are widely available today by prescription through compounding pharmacies."

"The subjects didn't know if the pill they took was for real or fake. Among the most zealous compilers in both categories (who we assume believed they were taking something that might make them better), there was a similar 15 percent mortality rate. Among the more lax followers, the rate was 25 percent in those assigned to the medication and 28 percent for placebo takers. It's amazing what attitude can do. Even with our basic medical education and specialization training, patients teach doctors a great deal."
