"The simple fact is that people are destroying the Amazon rainforest and the rest of the rainforests of the world because "they can't see the forest for the trees." Logging for Tropical Hardwoods Logging tropical hardwoods like teak, mahogany, rosewood, and other timber for furniture, building materials, charcoal, and other wood products is big business and big profits. Several species of tropical hardwoods are imported by developed counties, including the United States, just to build coffins that are then buried or burned."

"It can also cause decreased absorption of some nutrients essential for a good night's rest, particularly the B vitamins, magnesium, and calcium.11 And finally, alcohol is a diuretic, so drinking may interrupt your sleep by necessitating getting up several times during the night to urinate. Smoking also inhibits sleep. Because nicotine acts as a stimulant, many smokers have insomnia and other sleep problems.12 In a poll conducted by the National Sleep Foundation, 46% of smokers reported experiencing insomnia a few nights a week as compared to 35% of non-smokers."

"So turn the page and let's get started. one The Basics of Sleep We spend up to one-third of our lives asleep. Although some hard-driven people may view sleep as an inconvenience that curtails productivity and leisure activities, slumber is certainly no waste of time. In fact, sleep may play a more crucial role than diet or exercise in fostering optimal health. Sleep is a natural restorative, an antidote to the damage done to our bodies during the course of the day. It allows the body to replenish its immune system, eliminate free radicals, and ward off heart disease and mood imbalances."

"Sleep also gives your hardworking cardiovascular function a rest, allowing heart rate and blood pressure to decrease by as much as 10%. When sleep is insufficient, you may not experience this benefit, which has significant ramifications.

"For the rest, it can serve as a useful guide for taking the first steps while they are in the process of determining how to modify their diet according to their individual needs and the intrinsic capabilities of their own bodies. FRESH FRUITS The classification of fresh fruits is valid only for those who are unable to metabolize acids properly. For everyone else, all fruits have an alkalizing effect. Because a fruit's acidifying properties depend on how ripe it is—the more ripe, the less acid—the classification assumes the fruits listed are in their ripest state."

"In turn, information technologies can create a globally interacting yet locally diverse world, enabling all people to be linked whatever their nationality, culture, and ethnic origin, but information networks dominated by the power groups that brought them into being serve only the interests of that minority and marginalize the rest. 6. That the new is always better is evidently not true. Sometimes the new is worse than what it replaced—more expensive, less enduring, more complex, less manageable, and more damaging to our health and to our environment. 7."

"When the bath is done, wrap yourself in a towel and a blanket and rest for half an hour to allow the body to finish perspiring and recover its equilibrium. Depending on your level of vitality you can take such a bath every day for a period of two to three weeks, or every other day for several months. It is best to schedule the bath for the evening hours because it relaxes the body and encourages sound sleep. When the body is bathed in hot water, its own internal temperature rapidly increases. This can be easily verified by taking a reading with an oral thermometer."

"Of course, people whose metabolisms have no problem with acids are convinced of the alkalizing nature of these foods, while the rest remain equally convinced of their acidifying nature based on their personal experience. There is no reason for this controversy ever to have arisen. These foods can be either acidifying or alkalizing, and as such they form this distinct third group of weak-acid foods. In cases of extreme acidification, there is no need to worry that the total removal of all fruits from the diet will result in an insufficient intake of vitamins, as some have claimed."

"To separate the sugar from the rest of the elements, the sap is heated in a vat. The heat causes the sugar to crystallize; the crystals sink to the bottom of the vat and are harvested as whole or natural sugar. What remains on the top is a thick syrup containing the essential nutrients of the sugar cane. Thus, whole sugar obtained through this process is not as whole as it could be. In fact, true whole sugar contains blackstrap molasses and sugar. It is produced without cooking by exposing sugar cane sap to the sun in large flat tubs so the liquid content evaporates."

"They just don't want to convert all their processes because they would have to make an investment. The rest of the industry needs to get on board with this! It's frustrating." American Beauty? It's not just the formaldehyde cabinets. Like Columbia Forest Products, many US companies are interested in safer technologies but have a hard time competing with companies that aren't making those investments and that aren't required to inform consumers that their products contain harmful chemicals. Meanwhile, European companies are being pushed to develop safer technologies faster than."

"When you—and your legs—are ready to rest, restless legs are ready to run. Sensations of jumpiness, itchiness, burning, aching, or twitching are all common in people with restless legs. "It's often an unrecognized cause of insomnia," explains Jay Lombard, M.D., assistant clinical professor of neurology at Weill Medical College of Cornell University in New York City and co-author of The Brain Wellness Plan. You may think that you "just can't sleep," but in fact, it's the annoyance of your overactive limbs that is robbing you of your rest. Calming restless legs can require some patience."

"Jerry never exercised and was under constant stress from the deadlines and schedules that were the nature of his business. He had become totally driven by the business and left no time for himself. We told Jerry that the only way we could work with him was if he were willing to change his lifestyle. We made it clear that his sleeping problems were only a sign that all of his vital body functions—his circulatory, digestive, nervous, and hormonal systems—were beginning to fail."

"Vodka is fine, but remember if it says 40 proof, it is 20 percent alcohol and the rest is water. In the Amazon, a sugar-cane alcohol resembling rum and called aguardiente is often used to prepare plant tinctures; it is 40 percent to 50 percent alcohol. To prepare a tincture with a shelf life of at least one year, plan on using a minimum of 40 percent alcohol and the balance distilled water, unless otherwise noted in the plant information in Part Three. Use a clean glass bottle or jar with a tight-fitting lid or cork."

"Throughout the rest of South America, boldo is used for gonorrhea, as well as for liver, gallbladder, and digestive complaints. Boldo is the subject of a German therapeutic monograph that allows the use (as an herbal drug) for mild gastrointestinal spasms and dyspeptic disorders. In Germany, it is employed for liver and gallbladder complaints, gastric disorders, and to stimulate gastric secretions (especially bile production and secretion in the gallbladder and liver). It is also used for loss of appetite and as an antispasmodic."

"CURRENT PRACTICAL USES Traditional Preparation While iporuru will probably long remain in the South American herbalist's and shaman's medicine chest of natural remedies for impotency, arthritis, pain, and inflammation, its use by the rest of the world will be limited until more people and practitioners learn more about the plant and/or additional research is performed. Very few iporuru products are sold here in the U.S., and it is only available through a handful of companies (which mostly include it in multi-herb combination formulas)."

"Question: When Does the Subconscious Mind rest? Answer: Never "Okay," you may be saying to yourself, "conscious or subconscious beliefs, holographic memories or not, let's say that all of the events of my life really are stored somewhere. Why do I care about my past experiences? Are they even important to me now?" You bet they are! Here's why: The subconscious mind is much larger and more powerful than the conscious one. Although individual experiences may vary, the estimates are that upwards of 90 percent of our daily lives are directed from the subconscious level."

"Therefore, those with the disease must take insulin every day for the rest of their lives. This form of diabetes affects about 5 percent of those who have the disease and is currently believed to be autoimmune in nature, which means the body produces antibodies that destroy its own cells; in this case, the beta cells. The exact cause is unknown, although genetic factors, environmental influences, diet, and viruses are all being closely explored as contributing factors. SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS OF DIABETES Signs and symptoms can include the following: ?frequent urination ?excessive thirst ?"

"In New York, 20 percent are overweight, while 20-30 percent are overweight in the rest of the country. But it is in New York, as in England, that Type-2 diabetes is very much connected with race, genetics, and money. It seems to have an inverse relationship to income. Poverty seems to be associated with less access to fresh fruits and vegetables, exercise, and health care. New York's poverty rate is approximately 20 percent, which is higher than the nation's 12.7 percent. African Americans, Latinos, Mexican Americans, and Puerto Ricans have a diabetes rate close to twice that of white people."

"This will lay rest to the myth that protein-rich animal foods are somehow insulin safe when compared to carbohydrate-rich foods. Satiety Index The satiety index (SI) is a relatively new concept31 that measures how full or satiated people feel after consuming a given calorie load from a variety of foods. It is measured by asking people to rate how satiated they feel after a meal and by how much food they eat after a two-hour delay after consuming the test food."

"ZERO POINT PROCESS One of the most important parts of the program is the Zero Point course, a psycho-spiritual four-day training that helps people let go of their dysfunctional eating and lifestyle habits and let go of their desire and resistance to heal from diabetes and the Culture of Death, to which many diabetics, like the rest of our society, are addicted. This course also helps the diabetic let go of the allopathic myth that Type-2 diabetes is not curable and is a slow and steady downhill death march."

"It is an excellent way to reset your cellular memory, because during the Feast you are drinking the foods that you will be eating afterwards to maintain health and remain diabetes-free for the rest of your life. By drinking 12-15 pounds of juiced organic produce each day, you significantly rebuild the body with the best food possible. As you move into eating a low-glycemic diet of living foods, your whole being will ask for more of this healing and nourishing food because you recognize it at every level as good."

"If you discover that you're D-deficient, like most North Americans, proceed to the rest of the steps. You will get started on the right amount of vitamin D supplementation for your weight. Examine your diet for acid-base imbalance, and then make specific moves to ensure the balance that can ward off diseases. You also want to make sure that your supplementation regimen includes all the vitamins you need, and chapter 7 helps you get that action under way."

"Exercise is a buffer for acid as well as a caloric furnace, so it can make the rest of the program more successful. Exercise gives you some wiggle room with your diet because it provides short-term (muscle) and long-term (bone) storage of the good stuff for later use—during pregnancy, illness, aging, or dietary lapses. Exercise is like a rainy-day account. Q: What are the best vitamin D-rich foods?"

"Mississippi stays ahead of the rest of the country in the prevalence of obesity, and this is also the state with the highest percentage of African Americans, based on 2000 census data. This suggests that vitamin D deficiency risk and obesity often go hand in hand. Men's Health Magazine has awarded Houston, Detroit, and Philadelphia the dubious title of "Fattest Cities in America," and these three places are also among the top five cities with the most African Americans or combined African American designation (2000 census)."

"Suddenly, the pilot finds himself in a good news-bad news situation: The good news is that it looks like he'll be able to land by skidding the belly of his plane onto the runway; the bad news is that in doing so, the observation bubble will be crushed under the weight of the plane and his friend will die. The rest of the drama focuses on the emotional tension of the pilot exhausting all other alternatives and coming to a dire realization: To save his crew and himself, landing the plane is his only option. If he doesn't try, they'll all die."

"Save the rest for use later.) 5. Place pork atop apple-carrot-onion mixture. 6. Transfer baking dish to oven and roast until apple-onion mixture is soft and brown and meat thermometer inserted into the center of the pork registers 150°F, about 20 minutes. 7. Remove baking dish from oven and add remaining wine or hard cider. Cook for an additional 3 minutes. 8. Remove baking dish and transfer pork to platter. Cover with foil. Let stand 5 minutes. 9. Cut pork on diagonal into V^-inch-thick slices. Spoon apple-carrot-onion mixture onto plates, and top with pork. Serve with a green salad."

"Believe me, you'll be glad of the rest after the baby comes. And if you work in a high-risk setting—at a dry cleaner or a nail salon, for example—consider finding an alternate job for the duration of your pregnancy. Parents whose jobs expose them to high concentrations of toxic chemicals tend to have higher levels of miscarriages and birth defects. Don't get dental sealants or silver amalgams (fillings) when pregnant. Dental sealants can contain bisphenol A, a suspected endocrine disruptor, while traditional silver-colored fillings can contain as much as 50 percent mercury."
