"At the same time, Frank goes on, many people no longer feel able to draw comfort or meaning from the traditional sources for such stories—family histories, folk beliefs, religious traditions—because such traditional sources no longer have credibility in the modern world. This may be true, but is there anything more to say? Here I come finally to my point. In fact, there is a third way of thinking about physical illness—and of telling stories about physical illness—that is neither the traditional way that has lost credibility, nor the standard physicalist way that lacks existential relevance."

"Ordinary light sources are coherent over a few yards; lasers, microwaves, and other technological light sources remain coherent for considerably greater distances. But the kind of coherence that is coming to light in various 96 branches of the empirical sciences is more complex and significant. It indicates a quasi-instant connection among the parts or elements of a thing, whether that thing is a quantum, an atom, an organism, or a galaxy. This kind of coherence surfaces in fields as diverse as quantum physics, biology, cosmology, and brain and consciousness research."

"There are two possible sources of information: First, we can collect data from treatment sites, such as visits to doctors' offices, pharmaceutical prescriptions filled, or even hospital admissions; most of the information we consider subsequently in this chapter is from these sources. Second, we can collect data from typical citizens regarding their possible mental problems.4 The National Comorbidity Survey did just that, administering a structured psychiatric interview to a random sample of 8,000 Americans from 1990 to 1992."

"Wholegrains, green leafy vegetables, soya beans, nuts and milk are the best sources of magnesium. Vitamin B5 (pantothenic acid) Food sources include wholegrains, broad beans, egg yolk and liver. Too much alcohol, coffee, tea and stress increase the need for this vitamin. Possible symptoms of a Vitamin B5 deficiency include fatigue, fluid retention, sore feet, sleep disturbances, irritability and muscle cramps. Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine) Studies suggest that asthmatics may have a greater need for this vitamin than most people and further details of this are given on pages 1 14-5."

"Salmon, trout, herring, water-packed tuna, and mackerel are also excellent sources of omega-3 fatty acids, which medical studies have found to have a strong cardiovascular benefit. Due to the health hazards associated with xenoestrogens that were mentioned in Chapter 2, we urge you to eat only organic meats and poultry, which are produced without chemicals or growth hormones. Even with organic meats, some choices are better sources of protein than others. Red meat is usually higher in fat, particularly saturated fat."

"HOW OUR ENERCY IS CREATED Energy is produced within the cells, specifically in the mitochondria, which are the cells' power sources. The main fuels used are glucose, produced in the liver, and oxygen. The end result of the process is energy in the form of high-energy electrons and atp (adenosine triphosphate), atp is the main source of usable energy for cells. The food we eat is processed through many metabolic steps in order to arrive at this ultimate energy form."

"They analyzed a number of factors and found that excessive intake of vitamins, whether through fortified foods or other sources, was associated with an increased risk of osteoporosis in their county. They found a link to the excessive intake of vitamins through American fortified foods, such as breakfast cereals. It seems the American predilection for fortifying everything with vitamins has gone haywire. As a result, the Danes banned Kellogg's vitamin-fortified cereal. On December 8, 2004, a spokesperson for that country was quoted by nutraingredients."

"Toxoplasmosis, which comes from contact with the feces of cats and birds as well as other sources, may cause fever, headache, and sore throat. It works by inhibiting DNA synthesis of fungal organisms. Side effects include tingling, confusion, mood changes, nausea, vomiting, and problems with urination. Other possible side effects include liver dysfunction. Lice Medications Scabes is a small skin infection from a mite that usually comes from infected bedding. It can cause excoriated vesicles and pustules in the skin."

"Even worse, e-mail sources of prescription drugs are notoriously unreliable, so you really don't know what you might be taking. ANGIOTENSIN-CONVERTING ENZYME (ACE) INHIBITORS ACE inhibitors, one of the newest types of hypertension drugs, act on the reninangiotensin system, which regulates blood pressure and kidney function. Normally, the angiotensin-converting enzyme converts the molecule angiotensin I to angiotensin II, a potent vasoconstrictor that makes the blood vessels close down. Blocking the angiotensin-converting enzyme makes the blood vessels relax, thereby decreasing blood pressure."

"The only sources of alkaline minerals for the body are from the foods we consume, the supplements we may be taking, or from its own tissue stores. As alkaline minerals are used to neutralize acids, they are then excreted in urine and lost. This is how the body's alkaline reserve becomes depleted if it is not replenished through proper nutrition. A diet that is predominated by animal and dairy protein produces excess acids, which depletes the body's vital stores of alkaline minerals."

"Vimy says: It is now established that dental mercury fillings constitute the largest single source of inorganic mercury exposure to the general population, larger than all other environmental sources combined. Experimental evidence clearly shows that kidney function is reduced by 50% one month after dental filling placement and continues to decline at 60 days. ... The loss of 50% kidney function is comparable to losing one kidney.... mercury exposure has been called the 'great masquerader'."

"This Infoceutical also is designed to address the bioenergetic consequences of overexposure to electromagnetic radiation, or e-smog, from both man-made sources such as computers, mobile phones, and radio waves—and natural ones, such as solar radiation. It also has a bioenergetic impact on the nervous system, specifically addressing issues correlated to many of the bacteria, fungi, parasites, viruses, and viral particles—both real and virtual—that may disrupt the nervous system and affect other tissues. Therefore, this Energetic Star has a robust connection to Energetic Terrains."

Polarity: In NES, a slightly negatively charged electrostatic field that permeates the physical body. It is formed in part from the overall biological and energetic activity of the body and plays a vital role in the fotmation and functioning of the human body-field. quantum electrodynamics (QED): The area of physics devoted to the study of the interaction of matter (quantum particles) and light.

"Fennel, celery, parsley, and all legumes are excellent sources of phytoestrogens (natural estrogens found in plants). Hot flashes can be treated with several commonsense noninvasive approaches. Keep cool. Drink ice water throughout the day. Even a slight increase in your body's core temperature can trigger a hot flash. If you dress in layers you can remove and add clothing as your feelings of warmth rise and fall. Simple as it sounds, opening windows and using fans or air conditioners, even in the winter and especially at night when you are sleeping, helps keep you cool."

"He came to believe that this was a special wavelength in regard to the body, and he soon made a connection to the photo-repair mechanisms by which cells repair the damage done to them by ulttaviolet rays from the sun and other sources. Photo-repair is a well verified but little understood process, and Popp made the daring intellectual leap of positing that to conduct photo-repair, cells must themselves be emitting light. As he probed farther, he was shocked to discover that there is one wavelength at which the cellular photo-repair process works most efficiently."

"However, these sources do not generally provide sufficient bioflavonoids in the daily diet to have an effect on asthma.

"LOVE THOSE "GREEN" FATS There are other sources of "green" fats, the most obvious being olives, which when pressed gently as in extra-virgin olive oil yield a "green" oil that contains mostly monounsaturated oleic acid. Avocado is another excellent source of "green" oil. Stop being afraid of guacamole! fust use sugar snap peas or endive leaves instead of tortilla chips to scoop it up."

Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine) Studies suggest that asthmatics may have a greater need for this vitamin than most people and further details of this are given on pages 1 14-5.

"Natural antioxidants used in cosmeceuticals in particular are more and more often being obtained from organic sources. • Natural baby and children's products. The organic children's personal care market continues to grow, which is of particular importance given the high permeability of children's skin. • Natural whiteners. Organic whitening ingredients include arbutin, azaleic acid, burner root extract, kojic acid, licorice root extract, mulberry root extract, and the antioxidant vitamin C. • Natural botanicals."

"All three systems—and any secular but unsystematized competitors—depended for their explanatory and interpretative power on substances, structures, and analogies demanded by overarching theoretical models; their sources of evidence too were drawn from essentially the same points of access to the body and its functions. In this way, medicine in the pre-modem world challenges what we see as entrenched distinctions between 'alternative' and 'orthodox', and between 'western' and 'non-western' medicine."

"The Effect Will Soon Silence You': (Re)Discovering Moxabustion Busschof joined this multilayered—for it pervaded popular, medical, and scholarly sources in this period—debate enthusiastically. He presented the conclusions he had drawn from his encounter with another culture's medicine as a lively question and answer session between himself and a doubtful reader. The volume was popular enough to appear in multiple editions and several translations, including an English version, published in 1676."

"Hatha yoga's basic concept is to extend the physical body to its natural limits, develop breath control and thus to intensify self control, cultivate mind and body co-ordination, tap the inner sources of the body, strengthen muscles and expand the immune system. Supporters believe it prolongs life. While yoga can be practised by all ages, those around middle age seem to practise it most enthusiastically. Perhaps their maturity allows them a greater understanding of the philosophy."

"Only a few foods contain at least half this amount; most zinc sources (meats, nuts, and grains) range from 1 to 4 milligrams per serving. POTASSIUM FOR HYPERTENSION An intake of around 3,500 milligrams a day—the amount believed to help reduce incidence of hypertension—would also closely match the government recommendations to eat more fruits and vegetables. Chapter 3 When Two or More Nutrients Are Better Than One: Phytochemical Edition Admittedly, the amazing world of phytochemicals can be confusing."
