"She indicated to the research team that although she found raising her youngest child to be taxing, she also found the good in her new role. In working through her difficulties, she discovered strengths she didn't know she had, and deepened her religious faith. In other words, Jen was higher than most in what scientists call benefit finding—she found the good that emerged from her struggles. You might suspect that this would set Jen apart and make her among the healthiest of the moms tested. It didn't. Even though Jen was quick to articulate positivity, she didn't truly feel it."

"Having learned from my own research, when I vacation these days, I leave papers and e-mail behind and focus on having fun with my family. I also encourage my students and junior colleagues to do the same, which is the opposite of what my own mentors had encouraged. More important, I look for mini-vacations each day—a walk through the arboretum, lunch with a friend, a dance class, or a book to read for fun. I try to balance my entrenched work ethic with a growing play ethic. I find that vacations from my strong need to achieve refuel me and add depth to my life."

"Upward Spirals Within You As you've seen, most research on the broaden effect takes place in laboratories. In controlled laboratory settings, scientists are able to zoom in on the immediate effects positivity produces on people's vision, attention, thinking, choices, and behavior. Building on this work, scientists have also widened their lens to include the real-life, downstream repercussions of broadened thinking. This work uniquely reveals the paths that positivity cuts in our lives. Let me describe a study on mind-broadening that examined a wider stretch of time."

"Kareem conducted his first experiment by injecting research participants—tested one by one—with positivity, negativity, or neutrality.23 He then showed them a series of twenty-eight faces, very quickly, for just half a second each, with a two-second delay between photos. Later he tested their recognition of these faces by showing a series of fifty-six faces in random order. Half of those faces had been shown previously, half had not. Study participants could examine the faces as long as they needed. Their job was to decide whether they'd seen that face before."

"This research was aimed at defining whether the extraocular muscular system of the monkeys had the capacity of adapting (that is, the feature of "plasticity"). The research determined that the monkeys' extrinsic muscles—being held in the state of lengthening through sutures—lengthen at 18%, 25%, and 33%. Obviously, in the case of PVS, muscular rehabilitation and the restoration of extrinsic eye muscle functioning isn't achieved by suturing the muscles. It is achieved through the systematic work of ocular stretching at the maximum ranges of the ocular field."

"Lighten up and chill out! research has shown that insulin resistance is associated with stress, hostility, and high cynicism. A 2006 study published in Psychosomaf/c Medicine reports that people with high levels of hostility typically have worse insulin resistance when they are experiencing stress, especially high levels of chronic stress. It is possible that stress-reduction methods may help in this context (see chapter 9)."

"We still need to do more research on this topic, but more and more scientists believe that some kids are depressed because they haven't absorbed or metabolized enough vitamin D or essential fatty acids, so their brain doesn't function correctly, therefore their hormones don't function correctly, therefore they get depressed. Recent studies are exploring the relationship between fatty acids and mood, behavior, and personality. Often, just a simple blood test will show if your child is deficient in a particular vitamin or mineral or amino acid or protein. Start there."

"He continues to research this condition to this very day. Not everyone who is insulin resistant goes on to develop diabetes. In fact, if you discover you are insulin resistant, you can take steps to help reverse the condition. In the recent past, you would have needed to undergo complicated, expensive, and time-consuming tests at academic medical centers to identify whether you were insulin resistant. Today, however, commonly available blood tests allow us to identify those who have or who are at high risk for insulin resistance, as we discuss in chapter 4 in detail."

"Chapter 9 Lifestyle: Living With and Without Diabetes The jury is in: stress, depression, and other psychological conditions have a direct and significant impact on blood sugar control and metabolic health. research shows that stress hormones can negatively impact blood glucose and insulin levels. All of this is actually good news, because you have the power to do something about it. Stress doesn't have to take over your life or ruin your metabolic health."

"As parents, we have a responsibility to fight for more research like Perera's. Studies on Mercury Toxicity and Autism Over the last few years, numerous studies have shown how mercury exposure in early childhood could be contributing to the rise of autism and other developmental disorders. A 2004 Columbia Univerisity study reported behavioral characteristics in immune-compromised mice injected with thimerosal that appear similar to autism."

"If you're interested in learning more about your birthing options, do some online research. You can find information on freestanding birthing centers (for example, www.greenhousebirthcenter.com) as well as women's stories about their experiences at freestanding birthing centers (http://centralfloridagreenguide.com/?s=birthing+cottage+winter+park). Some hospitals have their own birthing centers, with a midwife and sometimes a doula to assist. To find a midwife in your area, you can start at the American College of Nurse-Midwives' homepage (www.midwife .org/find.cfm)."

"Research shows that autistic children often suffer from excessive oxidation. This creates oxidant stress, and damages brain cells. • // helps balance levels of dopamine. Dopamine is the neurotransmitter that is often imbalanced in kids with ADHD symptoms and autistic symptoms. Vitamin C helps change dopamine into norepinephrine. • It helps balance two important amino acids-phenylalanine and tyrosine. These two nutrients are important for physical and mental energy, and have a direct impact upon the brain. • It helps form L-carnitine. This amino acid helps metabolize fatty acids."

"However, I'd noticed a blurb about it, had done some research, and had gotten in touch with the physician who had discovered the condition, Susan Swedo, M.D., the Director of Child Psychiatry at the National Institutes of Mental Health. I learned that about half the kids with PANDAS had ADHD, that about half also had depressive disorders, and that about one-third had coexisting anxiety disorders. Apparently, PANDAS just cooked the brains of these poor kids. These children also often had facial tics and obsessive-compulsive problems-^" did Alisa."

"Among the leaders in laughter research is Lee Berk, of Loma Linda University in California. In one study, Berk divided in half a group of cardiac patients who had suffered a heart attack. Both groups received conventional rehabilitation care, but the members in one group also watched a humorous video or sitcom of their choice on a daily basis. After a year, the data showed that the comedy watchers had significantly lower stress hormone levels and blood pressure readings. They needed fewer medications. They registered healthier electrocardiograph readings."

"Despite these significant research developments, we still have much, much more to learn about how environmental exposures affect human health. We're only just beginning to understand the extent to which everyday exposures, even at low levels, can leave us vulnerable to illness."

"Meat eating creates the preconditions for diabetes, and accelerates the complications of the condition once it has manifested. research cited in Spiritual Nutrition shows that meat protein can increase insulin resistance, a precondition for diabetes and the diabetic degenerative process. Let's investigate the negative aspects of meat eating, and consider whether these realities should be included or excluded from a Culture of Life anti-diabetogenic diet and lifestyle designed to completely reverse diabetes.

"This suggests that there may be common links to all these diseases. research suggests that those common links are vitamin D deficiency and dietary imbalance. Today many patients with pain in multiple locations are diagnosed with fibromyalgia. Fibromyalgia (FMS) is likely an affective disorder, belonging to a family of diseases referred to by Harvard psychiatrists as affective spectrum disorder (ASD). This family of disorders also includes depression, posttraumatic stress disorder, anxiety disorders, chronic fatigue, and substance abuse syndromes."

"Extensive research has shown that you're not really starving in those moments. It's almost always emotional hunger that drives you: a fight with a spouse, an uncomfortable work situation, a lull in your workday, a needy parent or child, your life, your future, your past. It's something that sets off a brief episode of powerlessness. This book is really about finding the space between when something has affected you and your sudden urge to eat (which is not real hunger), and then exploring what goes on in your mind when you have that uncontrollable urge."

"If you can't quite accept the idea that you can't blame metabolism, look at the latest research showing that high-strung people stay thin not because of metabolism, but simply because they fidget more and move around more than you do and therefore burn more calories. The study showed that sedentary people sat 163 more minutes a day than fidgety people, who took 7,000 more steps and expended 350 more calories per day—a nonrigorous form of exercise, perhaps, but one that does contribute to weight loss. And so, again, metabolism can't be blamed."

"All about the Estrogen Family Estrogen is a family of hormones with three major circulating forms: El (estrone), E2 (estradiol), and E3 (estriol), each playing a different role. research in the estrogen family is still relatively young. Estrone (El) Estrone is the major form of estrogen made by your body during menopause. Estrone levels increase as estradiol production falls during perimenopause and menopause. Estrones are produced mainly in your liver and fat cells, but not in your ovaries, which wind down during perimenopause. Most of your estrogen metabolizes into some form of estrone."

"This is fertile ground for research and important news for women with a history of breast cancer who are wondering why they developed cancer and what they can do to prevent it from recurring. I try to have all of my patients do polymorphic testing to better understand their metabolic weaknesses and risks. Rarely, women require a test for two specific genes (known as BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes) that are closely linked to ovarian and breast cancer."

"Let's face it, with age, orgasms can become more elusive or less intense. research has clearly shown that sex drive decreases with age in both men and women, and this decline begins in the fourth or fifth decade, coinciding with a decline in sex hormones. Sexual function is often the last symptom to improve and can be the most resistant to treatment. There are, of course, many reasons for this. Antidepressants, overwork, stress, insomnia, marital strain, life, worry, and a low mood will dampen any sexual stirrings."

"When you get a name, do more research. Call to see if the office is helpful and organized. Ask about treatments. Does the doctor offer natural hormone treatments? How long is a typical new-patient visit and follow-up visit? Once you're an established patient, is there a long wait to get in for an emergency? Does the doctor have any special interests or training? More and more physicians are learning to think outside the box. They understand that truly preventive medicine doesn't mean simply diagnosing disease earlier, it is about disease prevention."

"This is especially the case since research has revealed that treatment of the disease has not decreased mortality rates. On the contrary, survival rates are higher in groups of men whose "treatment" consists merely of watchful waiting, compared with groups undergoing prostate surgery. In the Trans-Urethral Resection (TURP) Procedure, a 1/4-inch pipe is inserted into the penis to just below the base of the bladder, and the prostate is then fried with a hot wire loop."

"The research covered data from the Cancer Registry in Australia and the Surveillance Epidemiology and End Results in the USA for the year 1998. The current 5-year relative adult survival rate for cancer in Australia is over 60%, and no less than that in the USA. In comparison, a mere 2.3% contribution of chemotherapy to cancer survival does not justify the huge expense involved and the tremendous suffering patients experience because of severe, toxic side effects resulting from this treatment. With a meager success rate of 2."
