"Before we get to the specific ways in which you take your diet to the next level so your genes know that you deserve to live a long, long life blessed with robust health, you now know me well enough to not be surprised that first I have to explain the scientific underpinnings. Some of this is a bit complicated, but I'll make it as simple as possible, so please stay with me. It's vitally important for you to understand the "why" so that you can concentrate on the "how" that follows. Specifically, you need to understand the role that horme-sis plays in activating your longevity program."

"As many as 10 percent of Caucasians produce low levels of a specific enzyme required for proper detoxification in the body. In fact, at least twenty-five commonly used drugs need this enzyme to be present in the body for the detox pathway to work efficiently. So it's easy to see if this enzyme is low and the person is, let's say, taking Prozac for depression, the possibility of Prozac overdose becomes a real one. This is especially true if the person has significant toxin exposure (as most of us do)."

"Remember to be very specific. ?Ask your friends and family if you can try a retroprayer for some of the loved ones who were ill five years before. Concentrate on their former illness and see if this improves their current state of health. The idea will seem so ridiculous and therefore so harmless that they probably will agree to it. If you feel bold, you may even try this with a local nursing home. First, be sure to obtain permission of the patient and those in charge. Report any results by writing in to The Intention Experiment website: www.theintentionexperiment.com."

"This may actually indicate that the chronic fatigue syndrome is a problem of decreased immune function and not just a disorder caused by a specific virus. "Susceptibility is a very important issue because the presence of the virus is not enough to cause the syndrome. The terrain must be fertile to enable the virus to propagate and cause disruption to the organism. Any condition that compromises immune function such as AIDS, cancer, chronic kidney failure, rheumatoid arthritis or other primary, or secondary immunodeficient states." Detoxification is important in chronic fatigue. Dr."

"It shows the possible need for specific nutrients such as individual B vitamins, alpha lipoic acid, coenzyme Q10," Dr. Debe says. "With this test, you can be sure that you need a particular nutrient rather than just using a shot-gun approach. And the organic acid analysis also measures waste products from different organisms from bacteria, yeast and parasites. "Anyone desiring a work up for mental-emotional disturbances should have a hair analysis, which measures toxic metals and also mineral levels as well."

"Hodes continues, "so the government standards for the minimum daily requirements of various nutrients actually have little if any bearing on the specific needs of any particular human being. What seems to be a mega-amount for one person is the precise amount necessary to keep another person healthy and sane." Psychiatrist Michael Schachter says that most psychiatrists will consider the 49 possibility of a chemical imbalance in the brain as well as any psychosocial factors."

"While academic achievement and real world preparation for life is declining, the frequency of diagnosis of so-called learning disabilities such as dyslexia, specific mathematics disorder and ADHD is on the rise. These things serve as a ready excuse for the fact that educators have failed to educate, and that is the lure. It is much more ecstatic and romantic to be a brain diagnostician than it is simply to be one whose job is to impart the skill of reading."

"According to Popp, the meridian system may work like wave guides transmitting particular bodily energy to specific zones. Scientific studies show that many acupuncture points on the body have a dramatically decreased electrical resistance compared with points on the skin surrounding it (10 kilo-ohms at the center of a point, compared with 3 mega-ohms in the surrounding skin)."

"Penfield had performed extraordinary research on epileptic patients with anaesthetized scalps while they were fully conscious, showing that if he stimulated certain parts of their brains with electrodes, specific scenes from their past could be evoked in living color and excruciating detail. Even more amazingly, whenever he had stimulated the same spot in the brain (often unbeknownst to the patient) it seemed to elicit the same flashback, with the same level of detail. Penfield, and an army of scientists after him, naturally concluded that certain portions of the."

"Special groups of yogic flyers have assembled all over the world, carrying out special 'meditation intensives' targeted at specific areas of conflict. Since 1979 a US Super Radiance group ranging in size from a few hundred to more than 8000 has gathered twice a day at Maharishi International University in Fairfield, Iowa, to attempt to create greater harmony in the world. Although the TM organization has been ridiculed, largely because of the promotion of the Mararishi's own personal interests, the sheer weight of data is compelling."

"From 1991, Benveniste demonstrated that you could transfer specific molecular signals simply by using an amplifier and electromagnetic coils. Four years later, he was able to record and replay these signals using a multimedia computer. Over thousands of experiments, Benveniste and Guillonnet recorded the activity of the molecule on a computer and replayed it to a biological system ordinarily sensitive to that substance."

"All of these other practices train you to enter a specific state of consciousness, but One Taste is not a specific state—it is compatible with any and all states, just as wetness is fully present in each and every wave of the ocean. One wave may be bigger than another wave, but it is not wetter. One Taste is the wetness of the water, not any particular wave, and therefore specific practices, such as prayer or vipassana or yoga, are powerless to introduce you to One Taste. All specific practices are designed to get you to a particular wave—usually a Really Big Wave—and that is fine."

"Psychosomatic medicine," the synthetic program favored in the 1940s and 1950s, signaled a very specific programmatic commitment to a Freudian or at least broadly psychoanalytic approach to mind-body therapeutics—to ideas about speaking bodies. "Behavioral medicine," a movement that arose in the 1970s, stood above all for a commitment to interdisciplinary science, with a particular emphasis on laboratory-based rigor. "
- Anne Harrington, The Cure Within: A History of Mind-Body Medicine (Get the book.)

"Technically, the phase II liver detoxification process is called the conjugation pathway, but it's really a second wash cycle after the first one that entails a more rigorous process of breaking down the molecules further and binding them to specific types of proteins. These proteins help convert the intermediaries produced in phase I to water-soluble forms that can then be escorted out of the body through bile or urine (via colon or kidneys respectively). Phase II actually involves six distinct pathways, one of which—the glutathione conjugation pathway—merits special attention."

"Their protean nature gives them the potential to act as a repair system for the body, in which they can be used to build specific tissues or grow organs through cellular therapy."

"The morning formula would ideally consist of specific herbs to gently mobilize toxins stored in cells and tissues. The evening formula would contain some basic herbs to gently encourage bowel elimination. This basic cleanse would be a short one, approximately two weeks.Two morning-formula capsules would be taken before breakfast, then two evening-formula capsules before supper or at bedtime. Both are best taken with 8 ounces of water. Following is a list of ingredients to look for. A formula that contains as many of these as possible promotes the safe elimination of toxins from the body."

"Again, you'll find both liquid greens and whole-food multinutrient supplements at health food stores, or see the Resource Directory for specific suppliers. THE DETOX DIET The concept of nourishing your body is clearly tied directly to diet—what you eat. The foods you choose to put into your body are what ultimately nourish (or in some cases deplete) your cells. I just shared with you how high-quality proteins, for example, give you the amino acids you need to build and maintain bodily structures."

"If you don't subscribe to any specific denomination, or if you haven't found a positive religious experience, you may want to explore a belief that is not based on strict dogma. Unitarian Universalism, for example, is open to anyone who believes in the inherent worth and dignity of every person and in the acceptance and encouragement of each individual's own spiritual journey. Buddhism is another tradition to consider if you are looking for a religious community. There is also the American Ethical Union, which describes itself as a "humanistic religious and educational movement."

"This area of extreme longevity was located in a mountainous region that had been relatively isolated until recent times. "The specific mechanism by which persons living in this territory were more likely to reach extreme longevity remains unknown," the researchers concluded. As a demographer, Poulain's work was describing populations with data, not jumping to conclusions. Other than pointing out that other areas of extreme longevity existed in mountainous areas, his paper did not attempt to explain why the inhabitants of this Blue Zone were able to live so long."

"In-utero exposure to organic solvents is associated with poorer performance on some specific subtle measures of neu-rocognitive function, language, and behavior," they concluded. "Reducing exposure in pregnancy is merited until more refined risk assessment is possible." The study's authors classified both the tested and observed differences between the two groups of children as "subtle," and noted that their research did not attempt to determine how much exposure and what specific solvents caused which kinds of impairment."

"This way of working with the plant spirit may come when the plant spirit has given you specific instructions on how to bring about balance in another. You also may work within other modalities of healing like Chinese Five Element healing or the Chakra system. Because plant spirits are so multidimensional they have access to several ways of bringing a person to balance. A plant spirit's healing gifts may be to bring balance to one of the five elements as well as to help clear a chakra, for example."

"Stephen Buhner refers to the spiritual heart as the space where, "We feel the touch of the world upon us, and those millions of unique touches hold within them specific meanings, sent to us from the heart of the world and from the heart of the living beings with which we inhabit this world. This interchange changes the quality of our lives and reminds us that we are never alone." As poet Marta Belen says, "Through the door of an open heart the universe is known" and it is here with the heart that the triple spiral path of Plant Spirit Healing begins."

"Here the focus is less on correcting or compensating for specific physical conditions and circumstances, and more on restoring and enhancing the free flow of life force." The life force, traditionally known as Chi or Qi, is fundamental to Chinese culture. Etymologically the ideogram means "steam rising from rice as it cooks." This may refer to the breath or air extending to life force or spiritual energy, the current understanding of Qi. Some, mostly Buddhists and Taoists, believe that matter actually arises from Qi, which would insinuate that Qi is of spirit."

"There may be a utilization of an external element like the sun to balance yang energy or the moon to balance yin or a tree to balance wood energy, but it is usually specific to what a person needs to bring balance. What I like about the Seven Direction Movement Meditation is that you are not only harmonizing internal energy but also are exchanging energy with your external environment, the two harmonizing together. The movement also harmonizes opposites, like sharing part of east with west and heaven with earth."

"Radio broadcasters cannot legally take cash or any other gift in exchange for playing specific songs because it could be viewed as a bribe. But in the medical world, doctors depended on the industry's largesse. The gifts were part of the culture, part of a physician's daily practice. Doctors had continued taking the loot despite studies showing that even gifts as small as a pen could imbue them with the sense that they owed the pharmaceutical company a favor, a quandary that could be swiftly solved by writing more prescriptions."

"All of these other practices train you to enter a specific state of consciousness, but One Taste is not a specific state—it is compatible with any and all states, just as wetness is fully present in each and every wave of the ocean. One wave may be bigger than another wave, but it is not wetter. One Taste is the wetness of the water, not any particular wave, and therefore specific practices, such as prayer or vipassana or yoga, are powerless to introduce you to One Taste.

"This is why specific techniques of meditation are of value, not as things to do, but as aids to release the mind from its deeply ingrained patterns. They are skills we can learn to disengage our egoic mode of thinking. Another important consequence of allowing the mind to sink into the silence of pure consciousness is that the qualities that usually distinguish one self from another are no longer there. All markers of individuality have gone. We become aware that we are the light of consciousness, and that this light is the same light that shines within all beings."
- Peter Russell, Waking Up In Time: Finding Inner Peace In Times of Accelerating Change (Get the book.)

"While I agreed that the concept of specific action tendencies was useful, my sense was that it held value only for negative emotions. To fully understand the value of positive emotions, I had to chart a new course. I proposed that, unlike negative emotions, which narrow people's ideas about possible actions, positive emotions do the opposite: They broaden people's ideas about possible actions, opening our awareness to a wider range of thoughts and actions Positivity opens us. The than is typical. Joy, for instance, sparks *'rst core trutn aDOut the urge to play and be creative."

"Any environmental role that mercury plays in autism may well be due to cumulative effects of mercury—including heightened exposure in the womb because of the way in which mercury concentrates in fetal cord blood—combined with specific viral hits, which also may occur in utero. And, just as in mice, each child's unique genetic makeup will make it easier or harder for mercury, in combination with many other factors, to wreak its damage."
- Donna Jackson Nakazawa, The Autoimmune Epidemic (Get the book.)

"The National Cancer Institute's Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) Program's data program is so specific that patient information includes the stage of each patient's cancer tumor at diagnosis, the first course of treatmerit, and follow-up status. This information is available to all through the National Cancer Institute's Web portal, through its SEER Cancer Statistics Review. By comparison, the 23.5 million patients who suffer from autoimmune diseases do not claim megabytes in cyberspace in any national database."
