"The relaxation response includes the following changes: • reduced blood pressure • reduced respiratory rate • reduced heart rate • reduced oxygen consumption (burning of fuel) • reduced blood flow to skeletal muscles • reduced perspiration • reduced muscle tension The relaxation response is an antidote to the effects of the stress response and it has also been found to enhance the effectiveness of the body's defenses and self-repair mechanisms. Regular practice of techniques that elicit this response also brings improved emotional well-being and better handling of stressful life events."

"The study found that in those receiving statin drugs, deaths from heart disease were reduced by 42%, the chance of having a nonfatal heart attack was reduced by 37%, and the need for bypass surgery or angioplasty was reduced by 37%. In 1996, the results of the Cholesterol and Recurrent Events (CARE) Study showed the benefits of cholesterol lowering in patients with heart disease. This study reported that even in patients with seemingly normal cholesterol levels (average of 209 mg/dL), cholesterol lowering with a statin drug lowered the risk of having another heart attack or dying by 24%."

"The problem is that when energy flow is reduced over a long period, bodily tissues become deadened and healing potential is reduced. Energy-healing work increases energy flow. It has the effect of decreasing pain 90 percent of the time. In cases where the flow of energy in the body has been strongly dampened over a long period, however, use of this method may cause an increase in pain as energy begins to "enliven" deadened tissues. If this happens to you, know that the pain is temporary and will go away with continued energy healing work."

"It may eliminate the need for medication, or at the very least allow a reduced dose and therefore reduced side effects. A lifetime of popping pills, however, is drastic. I've built my pediatric practice around my belief that while drugs can be one of the temporary treatments for ADD/ADHD and similar behavioral disorders, proper diet and a healthy lifestyle might provide the cure for ADHD. I've seen countless children successfully shed the ADHD label and turn their lives around."

"But for now, we should look at the key components that can help you smooth out these terrible swings from heightened to greatly reduced energy levels: energy conservation and energy building. The purpose of energy conservation is to budget the energy available to you throughout the day, and the purpose of energy building is to help you build a suit of body armor that will protect you from what happened to Ms. Laurelton. The Energy-In, Energy-Out System The principle behind energy conservation is something that Dr."

"Testing for AIDS is essential except when an individual has absolutely no risk factors for becoming infected: having no sexual relations at all; being a lesbian, who is at greatly reduced risk; and having no possible exposure to blood products. Finally, hepatitis C can produce fatigue in the absence of any signs of liver disease. Like HIV, this virus is transmitted through blood and other bodily fluids."

"People with FM alone report that this walking technique considerably reduced their soreness. So if you are like Dr. Lowell, start a program of gentle walking lasting 30 minutes. Buy a pedometer to learn how many steps you walk in 30 minutes. Get in the habit of taking these walks three times a week. You may prefer.to do these walks alone, but it might be more pleasant if you walked with a companion. Once you've made this part of your weekly routine, you are ready to take up the pace."

"A multicellular organism cannot survive if it is reduced to one kind of cell; even sponges evolve cells with specialized functions. And more complex organisms have cells and organs of a great variety, with a great variety of mutually complementary and exquisitely coordinated functions. Cultural and spiritual diversity in the human world is just as essential as diversity in nature and in art. A human community must have members that are different from one another not only in age and sex but also in personality, color, and creed."

"When these functions are blocked, the human being's emotional and motivational system is vastly reduced. The overall impact is a dose-dependent apathy or indifference to everything and anyone. In more sensitive patients or at higher doses, these drugs make people grossly zombielike. ZYPREXA ZOMBIE IN DESPERATION and as a last resort, the parents of twenty-three-year-old graduate student Regina Dawson brought her to my office for an evaluation. A week earlier they had arrived from out of town for a brief visit and had been aghast at their daughter's condition. She was taking Zyprexa."

"Super-conscious awareness—A state of mind characterized by greatly reduced external awareness and expanded interior awareness which is frequently accompanied by penetrating intuitive insight, emotional (and sometimes physical) euphoria, and occasionally, visions. Although the experience is usually brief in physical time, such experiences can last several days or more, recur with frequency, and be maintained with constancy in the spiritually advanced person. Subjective perception of time, space, and/or self may strongly change during this state of consciousness."

"Martin's problem cannot be reduced to a description, even a perfect description, of the pathology in her knee. Of course there is pathology within these cells and the surrounding tissues, but it is impossible to understand the knee problem separated from the rest of her body and the rest of her life. As her primary care doctor for many years, I knew that Mrs. Martin needed more than what the clinical guidelines advised. The cells in Mrs. Martin's knee were malfunctioning because her walking was causing more wear and tear than Mother Nature had designed her knee to withstand."

"Few diseases can be reduced to a single biochemical, genetic, or cellular etiology. Certainly one factor contributing to coronary heart disease is LDL cholesterol particles entering the coronary artery walls and setting off an inflammatory cascade. But it is by no means the only cause. Untreated high blood pressure or diabetes can also contribute to coronary heart disease. Unhealthy behaviors (not exercising, poor diet, smoking, and obesity) play an even larger role, especially before the age of 70."

"The results were dramatic: The risk of death was reduced by 63 percent in the exercise group (more than twice the benefit of the defibrillator); the risk of hospitalization for congestive heart failure went down by 71 percent (instead of up by 33 percent in the patients who received implanted defibrillators); and both exercise capacity and quality of life improved significantly in the exercise group and remained improved for the 40 months of the study (p < .001 for both)."

"An exam showed no sign of cancer (or the cancer was dramatically reduced). The oncologist then proceeded to tell the patient that their alternative program had nothing to do with their recovery (bad enough in and of itself), but then went on to convince the patient to come back for anothet round of chemo to "make sure the cancer doesn't come back." And then the patient died of a heart attack as a side effect of that "insutance" chemo."

"Again, 'Studies have shown that within 30 days of teceiving amalgam fillings, kidney function is reduced some 50%. 2In effect, the denser the tissue, the greater the concentration of mercury. "There have been something over 12,000 papers published to date elucidating the dangers of amalgam fillings, but the most compelling detailed the use of radioactively tagged amalgam fillings in a controlled experiment. In less than 30 days, substantial levels of the tagged mercury was found throughout the body and brain and especially in rhe liver and kidneys."

"In their study, these researchers found that the ITCs in watercress show chemopreventive activity toward chemically induced colon cancer and that ITCs "significantly reduced the formation" of abnormal cells. These findings "provide important laboratory evidence for a potential role" ITCs play in the protection against colon cancer, they add."

"While some patients with severe FM cannot tolerate this treatment—because it does stretch muscles and ligaments and can be quite painful—others report reduced pain and improved function afterward. This rather common outcome plus the fact that the treatment is relatively short in duration leads me to prescribe it for widespread pain. But I do this keeping two thoughts in mind. First, just because the treatment works does not mean that it does so because of the theories behind structural integration, and second, I don't know if this type of massage is any better than other methods of massage."

"Add Vi cup of the reduced sherry to the sauce and discard the rest. Simmer for another 20 minutes. To serve, pour half a cup of the sauce onto a plate and top with two pieces each of tofu and broccoli. Tip: If the sauce is stored in the refrigerator overnight, the butter will rise to the top and can be scooped off easily. The sauce also freezes well."

"I myself can report cases where fibroid growth and the size of the uterus have been significantly reduced. The problem is that the results are very inconsistent. Often the cases that have shown the most dramatic improvements are the women who are nearing menopause or postmenopausal whose fibroids shrink because of the natural decrease in their estrogen levels."

"This may in part explain why some women who have reduced bone mineral density do not have an increase in fracture rates. These women may have a lowered bone mass, but they have excellent structural calcification, due in part to adequate levels of magnesium. In order to assess the effects of magnesium on bone density, a group of osteoporotic postmenopausal women were given magnesium over a period of two years. At the end of the study, magnesium therapy appeared to have prevented fractures and resulted in a significant increase in bone mass density after the first year of treatment."

"The first glance that went forth struck the enemy king, who burst into a torch of flame and was reduced immediately to a smoking heap of ash. Muchukunda turned, and the second glance struck the garlanded, beautiful youth, whom the awakened old king straightway recognized by his radiance as an incarnation of God. And Muchukunda bowed before his Savior with the following prayer: "My Lord God! When I lived and wrought as a man, I lived and wrought—straying restlessly; through many lives, birth after birth, I sought and suffered, nowhere knowing cease or rest. Distress I mistook for joy."

"Mountains blazed; cities perished with their walls; nations were reduced to ashes. That was the time the peoples of Ethiopia became black; for the blood was drawn to the surface of their bodies by the heat. Libya became a desert. The Nile fled in terror to the ends of the earth and hid its head, and it is hidden yet. Mother Earth, shielding her scorched brow with her hand, choking with hot smoke, lifted her great voice and called upon Jove, the father of all things, to save his world. "Look around!" she cried at him. "The heavens are asmoke from pole to pole."

"By deficient eyes she is reduced to inferior states; by the evil eye of ignorance she is spellbound to banality and ugliness. But she is redeemed by the eyes of understanding. The hero who can take her as she is, without undue commotion but with the kindness and assurance she requires, is potentially the king, the incarnate god, of her created world. A story, for example, is told of the five sons of the Irish king Eochaid: of how, having gone one day ahunting, they found themselves astray, shut in on every hand. Thirsty, they set off, one by one, to look for water."

"Add the reduced sherry to the soup. Cover the pot and simmer the soup for 1 to 2 hours, adding hot water if the level gets too low. Add the cooked pasta to the soup and mix well. Remove from the heat and garnish with the basil or fresh dill. Hearty Stew Any bean soup can be pureed in a blender and used as a base for stews. You can mix things up a bit by using black bean soup puree for a garbanzo stew. Select your favorite vegetables, cut them into chunks, and cover with the stock or soup puree. Add water if you don't have enough stock to completely cover the vegetables."

"The risk of uterine cancer was reduced to near zero, but nobody evaluated the overall effect of adding progestin to routine HRT. The Million Women Study confirmed that the taking of estrogen without progestin caused 10 extra uterine cancers and 5 extra breast cancers, a total of 15 extra cancers per 1000 women over 10 years. Adding progestin did, in fact, eliminate the risk of uterine cancer but caused an extra 19 breast cancers per 1000 women over 10 years."

"Over-expression of this factor in transgenic petunia plants results in flowers with reduced expression of all AN1 target genes, loss of pigmentation, and vacuolar pH alkalinization. The observation that MYBX expression is affected in anl flowers and that the endogenous MYBX gene is downregulated in plants overexpressing MYBX suggests that this small R3-MYB is part of a regulatory loop that modulates AN1 activity. Transgenic plants overexpressing AN1 do not show any kind of phenotypic alteration, which is probably a consequence of the negative feedback loop."

"In addition, though, it does provide specific benefits, such as: • Extremely powerful memory enhancement and improved cognitive performance • Supports the adrenals • A strong antifatigue agent • Of significant benefit in rheumatologic and connective tissue disorders such as rheumatism, osteoarthritis, scleroderma, psoriasis, lupus, and spondylitis • Repair of the myelin sheath structure • Improved immunity • reduced PMS and menopausal symptoms • And it just makes you "feel" really good Use of pregnenolone has shown no serious side effects even at very high doses of up to 700 mg."

"It was found that the red blood cell and hemoglobin count were starkly reduced with an increased intake of onion. It has been found that by cooking onion and garlic much of the effect of these properties is reduced. This is one of the reasons why a cooked onion is so much sweeter than a raw one. The stronger the bite of onion or garlic, the more concentrated the mustard oil and allicin. Mustard oil is also metabolized as thiocyanate in the body, which has been found to suppress the production of the hormone thyroxin from the thyroid gland."
