"While these possibilities may sound like the stuff of science fiction, they're also the subjects of serious scientific investigation?so serious, in fact, that during the last years of the Cold War, both the U.S. and the former Soviet Union devoted tremendous amounts of money and research to understanding precisely how real the Matrix that connects everything actually is. Specifically, the superpowers wanted to know if it's possible to navigate great distances through the Matrix by using the inner sight of the mind—the psychic abilities of a certain kind of telepathy known as remote viewing."

"Many thousands of published studies have shown that individual 92 nutrients at doses higher than those usually present in food have a significant preventive and therapeutic effect for serious diseases, not just nutritional deficiency states. In 2002, the standard-bearer for mainstream U.S. medicine, the Journal of the American Medical Association, published a report from Harvard researchers acknowledging that "most people do not consume an optimal amount of all vitamins by diet alone."

"Eating processed food can give us extra saturated fat, cholesterol, and sodium, but a serious problem in processed food can also be the trans fat or hydrogenated oils. Ignore the percentage recommendations because they are overly permissive. Eating according to those can take 20 or 30 years off your life from a heart attack or a stroke. Avoid processed foods that are high in sodium, meaning they contain over 300 mg of sodium per serving. o_ | Dietary Fiber 0g 0% | Most Americans don't get Vitamin A 4% Vitamin C 2% Calcium 20% Iron 4% ............."

"Our bodies," he said, "are designed to maintain a delicate balance between what we eat as food and what we burn as energy, and between making a strong immune response to a serious infection but not to a dust mite. Prescription and over-the-counter medications can disturb these balances. Many psychotropic, antiseizure, antihistamine, and antidiabetic medications also promote weight gain. The steroids that someone might take to control their asthma can also increase body fat and over-suppress their immune systems, making them more susceptible to infections."

"To treat diaper rash, avoid talcum powder, which can cause serious respiratory problems if inhaled by a baby. Yes, it does a great job of absorbing moisture, but it has also been linked to cancer in some animal studies—do you really want your baby to come into contact with such a substance? A healthier alternative is arrowroot powder—that's what I used when Wyatt was a baby. I also used calendula cream on his bottom to prevent diaper rash. Weleda and Jurlique both make great calendula creams."

"However nice the sun feels warming your shoulders, overexposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation can have serious adverse health effects over the long term. Children overexposed to the sun might not experience these effects—which include skin cancer, prematurely aged skin, and eye damage—until much later in life, which is all the more reason to prevent the damage from ever occurring. The thinning of the ozone layer leaves kids today more vulnerable than ever to UV radiation. The Environmental Protection Agency has developed an educational program (available on the Web at www.epa."

"It's important to find a sunscreen that protects you from both UVA and UVB rays, because while UVB rays cause sunburn, UVA ray penetrate the skin deeper and might cause more serious damage over time. UVA rays also intensify the cancer-causing effects of UVB rays. Finding a truly nontoxic sunscreen can be extremely challenging. But as a general rule, sunblocks (which physically "block" the sun's rays) contain fewer potentially harmful chemicals than sunscreens (which chemically absorb the rays)."

"Now there are countless new cases of autism, with more emerging every day, and there are also millions of other children with very serious cases of the other 4-A disorders, which are also partly due to the unsafe vaccinations. Furthermore, the government still allows thimerosal to be put into flu vaccines, and still recommends these vaccines be given to children and pregnant women. In addition, health authorities still cling to the accelerated schedule of immunizations. Despite all this, I am absolutely not anti-vaccination."

"For example, many serious diseases occur merely because the immune system becomes weak, and gives illness an opportunity to flourish. The 4-A disorders, though, have a much more complex relationship with immunity. Allergies .and asthma, in particular, are generally caused by overactivity of the immune system, rather than underactivity. To overcome them, the immune system must be made to function at just the right level. The particular part of the immune system that can become overactive, resulting in allergies and asthma, consists of white blood cells known as T-cells."

"Of these 20 million, at least 10 million have serious problems: autism-spectrum disorders, ADHD, asthma, or severe allergies. These conditions limit their lives, define their identities, and haunt their families. These new childhood epidemics were caused primarily by four fundamental, catastrophic changes in the environments of American children. I am convinced that I now know what these changes were, because of the clinical successes I have achieved by addressing the damage done by the changes. THE FOUR CATASTROPHIC CHANGES 1. Toxins Proliferated."

"Millions of people, often unknowingly, suffer serious problems due to yeast overgrowth-known as fungal dysbiosis. This happens not just because of antibiotic use, but also because many people consume large amounts of yeast-stimulating products, such as breads, sugar, and fermented foods. As you do your own detective work on your kids, look for the following clues, which reveal yeast overgrowth. FUNGAL DYSBIOSIS Caused by Yeast Overgrowth Clinical clues: Recurrent infections. History of frequent antibiotic use. • Chronic diarrhea Constipation. • Decreased cognitive function, or brain fog."

"In men, urinary tract infections are not as common as in women, but they can be very serious when they do occur. How does a urinary tract Urinary tract injections account for about infection occur? Normally, 8.3 million doctor visits each year. urine is sterile (free of bacteria, viruses and fungi). An infection occurs when microorganisms, usually bacteria from the digestive tract, cling to the opening of the urethra and begin to multiply. The urethra is the tube that carries urine from the bladder to outside the body. An infection limited to the urethra is called urethritis."

"Old age, presence of other serious illnesses and poor overall health may increase the risk of severe disease. Diagnosis of C. difficile disease can be done with a simple stool test and it is commonly treated with antibiotics. However, probiotics would be beneficial in this probiotic poor intestinal situation. C. difficile is spread by fecal-oral contaimination. Bacteria in the stool can contaminate surfaces such as toilets, handles, bedpans or commode chairs. Hand washing is vital to reducing the spread of this potentially deadly disease."

"Also his serious relationship did not lead to marriage, confirming the other question's response. The appearance of the second JD surprised me and made me wonder if the second dream figure was the person's telepathic response to his or her subconscious awareness or concern regarding my questions. Looking back, I wish I had had the presence of mind to ask the second figure, "Who are you? What do you represent?" and listen for the response. 4. After writing about these experiences for The Lucid Dream Exchange, a reader called me and asked if I had ever tried to dream lucidly of lottery numbers."

"She had a serious clotting problem that the lumbrokinase helped keep in check. Eventually she got the message. Selected Research Two large multihospital studies from China have demonstrated improvement from lumbrokinase in unstable angina and return of function following stroke. The research indicates a reduction in blood viscosity and, in the case of stroke, heightened recovery from nervous system damage if taken within a month of the event. Lumbrokinase has been used in Chinese hospitals since the early 1990s."

"We have just begun to recognize that even a high normal glucose can eventually become a serious threat to our health. The point is we need to understand the complex toxic effects that high blood sugar or hyperglycemia creates in the body. It should be clear at this point that a high blood sugar damages cells through multiple mechanisms and accelerates all elements of aging. The following list shows the potential problems that can arise from a high-glycemic diet."

"In 1998, the American Academy of Periodontology issued a strong warning that gum infections represent a "far more serious threat" to the health of millions of Americans than previously realized. They cited an increased risk for heart disease, stroke, and underweight births. Gum disease is an infectious, inflammatory condition caused by bacteria. The infections, which can last for decades, place enormous stress on the immune system."

"This poses a serious threat to the mitochondria and to cell survival. Every puff on a cigarette brings a load of free radicals and cadmium (a toxic metal) into the bloodstream to damage the endothelium. Lighting up can temporarily narrow arteries an additional 5 percent. Not that we condone smoking, but if you take vitamin C beforehand, you'll get some protection from cigarette spasm."

"People die from the electrolyte imbalance that happens with chronic purging, or they get serious dental problems, they have various forms of malnutrition and vitamin deficiency, and a secret life of agonizing shame. They appear to be thin, "together" people on the outside, but they feel like frauds on the inside. Make a Declaration. Be Honest: Where Are You Now? 1. I believe that using purging to compensate for overeating will no longer work for me. 2. I still want to be able to overeat and purge to compensate for it."

"These were all highly motivated people sent to Pritikin by their doctors because of serious, life-threatening health problems, but positive motivation clearly wasn't enough to help them resist phantom hunger. One recent study showed that 33 percent of overweight women said they would trade 5 percent of their remaining lifetime for just ten pounds of permanent fat loss."

"If you're here to think about it, the best I can do is help you think about thinking about it, and maybe you'll decide to be serious about doing something, or maybe you just aren't ready. By now you know that weight is an emotional issue. Believe me—resistance is common when it comes to weight loss, and chances are good that you harbor some yourself. Some people get so agitated when discussing weight issues that they can't focus on logic."

"There are many FDA-approved drugs, that, over time, have caused serious problems. DES, Premarin, Thalidomide, and Vioxx, to name a few, were all FDA-approved but are now known to be associated with increased risks of cancer, blood clots, birth defects, and heart disease. FDA approval does not mean that no possible harm can come to you from using a medication. ?There are no studies supporting the safety or efficacy of bioidentical hormones. This is not true. Bioidentical hormones have been used by physicians in this country and worldwide for over twenty years."

"I have prescribed continuous use of natural estrogen and progesterone for my menopausal patients for years without serious problems. Discuss cycling with your doctor and see what works best for you. Most menopausal women require 0.6 to 1.2 mg of estradiol twice daily. If hot flashes are severe you will probably need at least 0.8 mg doses. No matter what dose you start with, if you are having hot flashes, take a little more and increase the full dose at your next application. There is no reason to suffer for hours. Your tender breasts and other symptoms such as hot flashes will guide you."

"Because low thyroid hormones cause serious congenital problems, functional low thyroid may in fact be nature's way of ensuring ideal conditions for pregnancy. The conversion of T4 into T3 requires ideal cell conditions (adequate magnesium, iron, DHEA, Cortisol, iodine, and tyrosine). If there is not enough T3, guess what?progesterone, the pregnancy hormone, won't work normally. This is why women with low thyroid hormones have irregular cycles, heavy bleeding, and PMS symptoms."

"Jane had seen multiple doctors and had many tests done, only to be told, "We don't know what these chest pains are, but they don't seem to be serious." She had been on disability for one and a half years for severe, incapacitating nerve pains in her legs and chronic low back pains, which were only relieved by nerve blocks every three to six months. To make matters worse, she had gained over thirty pounds in two years. All of Jane's symptoms had started in her early forties, when she began having heavy, painful, and irregular periods."

"This is a major problem in elderly people and can lead to serious diarrhea and at times death. Probiotics for Prevention of Antibiotic-Associated Diarrhea It is wonderful that probiotics can help alleviate antibiotic-associated diarrhea; however, can probiotics prevent antibiotic-associated diarrhea? Yes, they can. In 2002, a group of scientists reviewed all of the research available on the ability of probiotics to prevent antibiotic-associated diarrhea. This type of review is called a meta-analysis."

"Pretreatment with L-carnitine also reduced more serious arrhythmias in this animal model, leading researchers to suggest that carnitine may be beneficial in arrhythmias, presumably by supporting free fatty acid metabolism. I have seen impressive results in my own clinical experience with patients responding to L-carnitine, particularly in combination with other members of the "triad."

"I developed serious food allergies and sensitivities to everything in my environment. I became allergic to everything in my own home, I reacted to plastics of all kinds, and I couldn't breathe outdoor air. The air inside my home had to be filtered especially for me and I had to wear charcoal face masks to breathe. I was literally a captive in my home for the first year. Also, I had depression, mood swings, and a lot of confusion and memory loss. I would go into one room and forget why I was there."

"Clearly, the mainstream medical and political establishment has a long way to go in recognizing and addressing the serious problem of chemical toxicity. "The government agencies and the higher-ups in the medical political structure are not even half-aware of the complexity of these environmental toxins and their effect on our health," says Dr. Richard Kunin. "They see it as very rare and therefore don't include [it] as part of a routine medical checkup."
