"Based on the results of these tests, your child may be eligible for special schooling. You will have to weigh the benefits of the intervention against the potential stigma of being in "special" classes. However, children in first or second grade usually don't notice things like kids being pulled out of the classroom for special tutoring. Finally, the best way to determine whether a child has an ADHD is with a trial of an appropriate medication. If there is an improvement in concentration with one of the ADHD drugs and it helps your child achieve and be happy, that is what is most important."

"Most places are happy to accommodate you, especially when you state, "I am on a special diet prescribed by my doctor." It helps if you request a meal that includes foods that already are on the menu. For example, steak houses commonly serve salads, baked potatoes, and small portions of vegetables. Asking for larger than usual portions of these foods is an easily met request (be sure to tell them you do not want butter or salt). If you are going to the restaurant from your home, you can bring a favorite dressing or sauce to make the meal even more special and enjoyable."

"Informative campaigns by competent health bodies (commercials, magazines, special TV broadcasts) ?Distribution of brochures with necessary information ?Financing of scientific works on the natural treatment of refractive errors, including the works aimed at establishing standard procedures for each level of refractive error (large samples are lacking now; so it's impossible to set up and precisely standardize all the parameters for treating each group of people or level of vision defect) ?Establishing specialized centers (for preventive work and treatment) ?"

"Sesame seeds contain a special phytoestrogen called sesamin that may play a role in helping vitamin E curb the production of inflammation-causing eicosanoids. When the body has too many omega-6 fatty acids and not enough omega-3s, it tends to produce eicosanoids, which in turn affect immune function. So look for opportunities to add sesame seeds to your meals, especially when you are eating something high in vitamin E, such as sunflower seeds, almonds, peanut butter, canola oil, Swiss chard, or broccoli. Vitamin C boosts the effectiveness of phytoestrogens."

"It possessed special significance. It was the attire of the emperor and the aristocracy, an indispensable symbol of political authority, and a prime requirement for ecclesiastical ceremonies."12 So important was the precious stuff that it required special legal attention; laws regulated the use of silk by dyers of purple cloth, in order to maintain control of what was an aristocratic and imperial privilege."

"Once cells were working together in a community, it became more efficient for individual cells to take on special functions. Some handled tasks such as digestion; some formed a protective skin; others helped the organism move about. From then on, evolution was not limited to the creation of new species of cells. The muscle cells in a fish are not very different from the muscle cells in you or me. What has evolved is the way the cells are organized. This can change more easily and more quickly than the biological structure of the cells themselves."

"Fragrances were historically treated as luxury items for use only on special occasions, but by the twentieth century were being used by many women daily. Up until 1921, when Chanel No. 5 was introduced to consumers, perfume fragrances had mostly been derived from natural ingredients and essential oils. Chanel revolutionized the fragrance industry with the introduction of aldehydes and other synthetics, which gave fragrances greater consistency and stability at lower cost."

"According to an Estee Lauder Japan August 2005 internal memorandum (11), "There is no concern in the Japanese public about Japanese cosmetics safety (and), Japanese and non-Japanese companies have not made any special effort at improving safety of products." However, the Japanese industry has no option but to comply with the 2005 European regulations on ingredient safety in order to market its cosmetics in Europe. The Japanese industry must now decide whether to comply with these standards in Japan as well or to adopt European safety standards only for the products it sells in the EU."

"Part Two: Identifying Product Dangers Chapter Five: Products Targeting Infants and Children If you have raised children, you know this loving ritual from firsthand experience: You pamper your infant with all the personal care products at your disposal, bathing him or her with special infant formula soaps and shampoos, soothing his or her skin with lotions, and dusting his or her bottom with talcum powder. You go through this routine every day, thinking you're doing the right thing, never imagining you may be harming your child's health later in life."

"The FDA issued a statement in 2007 that it would not require any special labeling or regulations for nanoparticles added to cosmetics because, the agency claimed, there was no scientific evidence of any major safety risks. But to the contrary, there is now more than enough evidence to demonstrate that nanoparticles pose serious and irreversible health hazards."

"Even something as simple as a gold star or a special handmade plaque is a great incentive for a young person. Try changes in diet. Reductions in sugary foods and foods with artificial colors and preservatives have been shown in scientific studies to help ADHD. Get your kid involved in athletics. If after several months there is no improvement, you may need to try alternatives. Many schools offer team appointments with your child's teacher, social worker, and psychologist. In public schools that kind of intervention can take years."

"ROYAL JELLY This ancient Chinese food of nature is made by bees, as it is the special food fed to the larvae who will grow up to be queens rather than workers. Royal jelly has been used for centuries to ward off disease: Hippocrates is said to have mentioned it in his teachings in the fourth century BC. Royal jelly is not used as a drug to combat any particular disease, but rather as a health-giving supplement. Royal jelly contains numerous trace elements, mainly copper, calcium, iron and silica, which are of paramount importance to the body's immune system."

"Where a child is very small it is not possible to introduce them to special breathing techniques or exercises: for such techniques to be useful the child must first understand what he or she is supposed to do. As soon as the child can follow instructions with understanding you should begin the exercises we explain on pages 77-78. Children under five cannot generally perform these exercises satisfactorily but they can practise blowing up balloons and play blowing games that help them breathe correctly. We describe a number of these games also."

"Seaweed or kelp Seaweed is a special food, for it contains a wide range of valuable minerals. Particularly high in calcium, iodine, zinc, potassium, magnesium and selenium, seaweed is also very rich in Vitamin C?an additional bonus for someone with asthma. Seaweed stimulates the immune system and in the past folk medicine used it to treat respiratory and gastrointestinal problems. Seaweed has also been shown to lower cholesterol and blood pressure and to maintain balanced thyroid activity. Sourced from the sea bed, seaweed has added minerals not usually associated with 'earthly produce."

"In those special moments, we feel more aware, more fully in the present, no longer lost in thoughts and concerns. There is a sense of liberation, a release from the humdrum affairs of the world. Perhaps there are feelings of awe and wonderment, a deeper connection with ourselves, with others, with nature, and sometimes with the whole of creation. We may remember what it is to be fully alive. In those moments, we are free. We are truly at ease. Countless examples of such moments of grace are to be found in autobiographies, poetry, and spiritual literature all over the world."

"We want to be their special person, the one they want to be with. Such love is very fragile. Should our partner not do as we wish, or otherwise fail to meet some dream we have of them, we can easily find ourselves slipping into the opposite reaction. Fear raises its head once again and we find ourselves becoming upset with them and falling out of love. If we are not very careful —and usually most of us are not—our partner's failure to meet our expectations is interpreted by us as an unjustified attack."

"Save the money you used to spend on cigarettes and give yourself a special treat. At least once a week reward yourself by buying or doing something that makes you feel good. Hypnotherapy and acupuncture are extremely successful treatments for cigarette addictions. Try auto-suggestion to reinforce your decision and help you overcome the subconscious desire to smoke. Buy tape recordings with stop smoking messages and play them repeatedly. Keep photographs nearby of lung damage caused by smoking."

"However, Kaempfer refused to accept the theory that explained the power of those special points—the channels and vessels of energy flow postulated by East Asian understandings of the body. Thus where Ten Rhyne's images, though westernized, retained the qi channels, those channels are unmarked on Kaempfer's (see Figures 11 and 12). Moxabustion became, at a stroke, mysterious. Its basic effectiveness was unquestioned, but was also inexplicable."

"As he argued for the special feminine suitability of the practice of medicine, Wilkinson sounded themes that would have been very familiar to his audience:30 In all respects one half of medical practice belongs to Homoeopathic woman. Only note her qualities. The first of these is intuition, the bird's eye of her ever busy love.... Were this intuition fixed and educated, it would readily pass into stable medical sight. Her fine sense animated by this, might soon eclipse the corresponding organism in the man in several fields of diagnosis....31 Homeopathy had much to gain from recruiting women."

Diarrhea Diarrhea is not a disease but a symptom. It may be a sign of an underlying disorder or infection."

"Each B vitamin has a special function in the body. There are many more properties of these vitamins (too many to list here.) A few relevant properties include: 1. B1 or thiamine is required for proper muscle tone in the intestinal tract and aids in the production of hydrochloric acid (HCL) or digestive juices in the stomach. 2. B2 or riboflavin is used for red blood cell formation and helps the body to metabolize carbohydrates, protein and fats. Along with vitamin A it helps to heal and nourish the lining of the digestive tract. 3."

"King praised Gopalacharlu's 'special knowledge of ancient Hindu medicine' and Sanskrit texts, then noted that, 'at his request I have examined the dispensary at which he works': I consider the whole arrangements reflect much credit upon himself and the committee concerned... Personally I am no believer in 'systems', but consider that science can gather fruit from the tree of experience in whatever soil it grows. There must be drugs that were known and used by ancient Hindus, which, brought to light with the aid of modern methods of phareacology [sic], may prove of great utility."

"One of the conclusions of Einstein's special Theory of Relativity is that light is in some ways more fundamental than either space or time. Could it be that when the light of pure consciousness radiates through humanity, these deeper truths will be manifested in some way? Such a radically different mode of consciousness may be totally beyond our everyday experience, and may seem pure science fiction, but that does not make it impossible. Whatever may happen, there is another sense in which this full awakening might be an end —an end in the sense of a purpose or goal."

"Ten percent of all drugs approved for marketing by the fda between 1975 and 1999 were subsequently either withdrawn from the market because of adverse reactions or labeled with a "black box" indicating special hazards. There is much to be said for avoiding the use of any new drug unless there is compelling data that it offers an important benefit that does not derive from older agents. I do not allow "samples" in my clinic and do not allow pharmaceutical "detail" people to try to convince me that the agent they market is indispensable."

"Bring your spouse and other children along to cheer, and pack a picnic to eat at the park afterward with special celebratory (and healthy) treats to enjoy no matter the outcome of the game. Suggested Activities There are plenty of ways you can clue yourself into your child's interests or potential passions from the types of media they are drawn to. Below are some suggested activities.You can have your child write a check mark next to the ones that he thinks he'll enjoy, and you'll have an excellent starting point."

"He has a special talent for coaxing unhappy women into his toils. He likes to dance on moonlit nights. Whenever a wife of his is about to have a baby, he comes into the villages to seek a midwife. But he can be detected by the water that oozes from the border of his garments. He is bald, tun bellied, puffy cheeked, with green clothing and a tall cap of reeds; but he can also appear as an attractive young man, or as some personage well known in the community. This Water Master is not strong ashore, but in his own element he is supreme."
