"Where people with typical depression have a sustained depressed mood, those with atypical depression can cheer up in happy situations, only to have the symptoms return again later. And unlike people with ordinary depression, who are likely to lose sleep as well as weight, patients with atypical depression tend to sleep excessively and gain weight, and some may even experience a kind of torpor called leaden paralysis. But recall that fluctuating mood, weight gain, excessive sleep, and torpor also describe some patients with severe fatigue."

"But while caffeine can be useful in cases of mild fatigue, many people are very sensitive to other symptoms produced by this general stimulant—the feeling of nervousness, of their heart pounding, or the need to urinate over and over again. Another medicine that helps some patients feel better is vitamin B12, given in large doses by injection. One study done many years ago did suggest that it could improve general well-being, but with only limited effects on fatigue. Medical students are taught that vitamins are useful only in patients who, for one reason or another, have a vitamin deficiency."

"So in order to figure out how effective a new drug is in reducing symptoms, researchers compare its effect against that of a placebo: a sugar pill. Since every patient in a placebo-controlled trial gets some treatment, this type of study allows the researcher to sort out the therapeutic effect of the active drug, comparing its effect to that of just being treated with an inactive substance.

"Many of my patients with both depression and medically unexplained symptoms report having tried many antidepressants with no real benefit. But when I ask about dosages, the patient can rarely remember. So I have to decide whether the patient received an adequate trial of these medicines. Obviously, if the dosage was not sufficient, an ineffective result is not a surprise. So if the patient is willing to try again under my direction, I will simply go through the same protocol as above."

"Try to eat only when you feel hungry and as time progresses, pay attention to see if you can develop the ability to distinguish true hunger—felt in the throat—from the symptoms of toxic hunger. Remember, the symptoms of toxic hunger, which are caused by withdrawal, won't turn off until you have provided your body with adequate nutrients and your body has had time to build up a nutrient reserve in its tissues. This could take a few weeks to a few months, so be patient. Eating when hungry usually translates into a three meal-per-day format, without snacking."

"Not recognizing the inner malaise that lies at the root of these disasters, we continue treating only the symptoms of the problem. We are like a doctor who lances a boil on a patient's skin without stopping to consider what is causing it. These symptoms will not suddenly go away. They will continue to become more severe. We are reaping the consequences of many years of misguided thinking, of decisions made through self-centered and materialist value systems."

"If a rogue frequency in the body could produce certain symptoms, it followed that the high dilution of a substance which would produce the same symptoms would still carry those oscillations. Like a tuning fork in resonance, a suitable homeopathic solution might attract and then absorb the wrong oscillations, allowing the body to return to normal. Popp thought that electromagnetic molecular signalling might even explain acupuncture."
- Lynne Mctaggart, The Field - The Quest for the Secret Force of the Universe (Get the book.)

"Homeopathy, as formulated by its founder Samuel Hahnemann (a German physician), was based on the widely accepted medical view that the symptoms of a disease constitute the disease itself and, a corollary, that eliminating the symptoms constitutes a cure. Hahnemann found that some drugs produced the same symptoms in a healthy person (that is, caused the "illness") that they eliminated in a sick person (whom they "cured"). For example, he found that cinchona bark, at the time used to relieve the symptoms of malaria, produced malarial symptoms in a healthy person."

"As they wear off, the symptoms return. Twenty-four hours later, the patients underwent a medical procedure where they believed that they would receive a substance to restore their brain chemistry to normal levels. In reality, however, they were given a simple saline solution that should have had no effect on their condition. Following the procedure, electronic scans of the patients' brains showed something that's nothing short of a miracle. Their brain cells had responded to the procedure as if they'd been given the drug that originally eased their symptoms."

"They may rapidly lose 100 to 150 pounds, with their shrinking fat cells releasing enormous amounts of heavy metal "toxins" into their bloodstream, but I have yet to see a single one develop "detox" symptoms. Likewise, the scientists of Biosphere II lost one-third of their body mass in a year and had huge elevations in heavy metals measured in their bloodstream without any "detox" symptoms.

"Some lucid dreamers who attempt healing in the lucid state report very limited success or no effect on their symptoms. Other lucid dreamers, however, have reported considerable success at achieving one or more of the following: 1) a reduction in the severity of physical symptoms, 2) a surprisingly rapid healing experience, and 3) on occasion, a disappearance of the health issue altogether. Why do some lucid dreamers succeed, while others don't?"

"But the real reason you experience these symptoms is not the result of purging your body of built-up toxins. Rather, the symptoms result from a sudden massive exposure to plant toxins, which your liver enzymes can't process fast enough. The detox diet is actually a toxin diet. How do I know this? I treat numerous individuals who are about to undergo or have had stomach bypass/stapling surgery."

"Avoid denial and don't rationalize symptoms. Remember that the leading cause of death and disability in women is heart disease and stroke. You and Your Doctor We are both information hounds. We regularly attend medical conferences and talk to researchers and clinicians in the fields of cardiology, nutrition, and environmental medicine. Much of our clinical work is innovative and, in a sense, five or ten years ahead of standard care. So, many doctors may not feel comfortable with some of the ideas we discuss in this book."

"If you answer yes to many of the questions, you have the symptoms of emotional eating, and you can therefore conclude that you are one. 1. Do you ever notice your hunger coming on fast? 2. When you get hungry, do you ever feel an almost desperate need to eat something right away? 3. When you eat or snack, do you often eat mindlessly, not paying attention to the taste of the food or how much you are eating? 4. When you get hungry, do you sometimes feel you need a certain type of food or treat to satisfy yourself? 5. Do you ever feel guilty after you eat? 6."
- Roger Gould, Shrink Yourself: Break Free from Emotional Eating Forever (Get the book.)

"Whenever you experience these symptoms or have trouble practicing these habits, you'll know that emotions are dominating your eating behavior. That's the starting point. Instead of just automatically and blindly continuing to eat, stop for a moment to catch yourself in an emotional eating episode. Investigate what you're thinking and feeling when the cravings seem overpowering. The red flag list provides you with the opportunity to prove to yourself that you're an emotional eater through direct and immediate experience, not just because you answered a few questions in a book."

- Roger Gould, Shrink Yourself: Break Free from Emotional Eating Forever (Get the book.)

"Also, if you eat enough food, you go sluggish and dull, which might take the edge off the uncomfortable physical symptoms that anxiety causes, but again, the cause of the anxiety is still there. Few things excite automatic eating the way that stress does. One minute you experience stress, and the next minute you've got a fistful of chips headed toward your lips, without stopping to think in between. Having too much stress increases the odds that you'll eat unhealthy food. Under stress, you tend to opt for food that won't take any more of your already frayed resources to prepare."

"Typically, we reserve it for patients with pronounced symptoms or if the noninvasive data indicate a significant probability of obstructive artery disease. In New Cardiology, we utilize a variety of tests to pinpoint problems before resorting to an invasive procedure. The diagnosis of cardiovascular-related illnesses has produced astounding advances in recent years, allowing us to detect and treat the early signs of potentially lethal cardiovascular situations before they become serious. We have the tools today to avert the danger, some truly amazing diagnostics readily available to patients."

"Traditional Signs and symptoms of a Stroke • Arm and leg weakness on the same side • Weakness in facial muscles: may progress to one-sided facial droop • Sudden headache • Staggering gait; leg weakness or instability • Imbalance; stumbling; difficulty walking or picking up objects • Difficulty speaking (aphasia] and slurred speech • Double vision or loss of vision in visual field on same side for both eyes If arteries are blocked in the legs, walking is impaired. Cramping pain and weakness develops in the calves. This condition is called intermittent claudication."

"I have found that (1) it does remove heavy metals, and (2) it does improve symptoms and blood flow. Carotid ultrasounds are healthier. Each patient with angina has less chest pain. There are almost across-the-board improvements. Keep in mind, however, that I use this with the rest of my program and never alone. I continue to use IV chelation but am somewhat frustrated by the cost and the time factor. Now I am delighted to have an oral supplement that people can take at home."

"You could pound down symptoms in a relatively adequate percentage of kids, but were you really helping them as much as possible? What about root causes? What about the high percentage of kids who weren't helped at all? What about side effects? I was more interested in natural, innovative approaches that seemed to solve the underlying problems. The premiere natural approach back then was the Feingold Diet, which is still extremely popular."

"EXERCISE Ten Healthy Eating Habits You Should Adopt You might still be thinking, I have the symptoms but that doesn't mean I have to do anything about emotional eating. I can still control my weight by some other approach. If you didn't think you needed to do something about your emotional eating, you wouldn't even be reading this book. So this argument is at least partially wrong from the get-go. But it's wrong for another reason as well. Because you're an emotional eater, you can't be a rational eater, and therefore you won't be able to control your weight. No other method will work."

"People with this problem have all of the signs and symptoms of a low-functioning thyroid gland (fatigue, headache, body aches, heavy menstrual cycles or irregular cycles, dry skin, constipation, moodiness, or depression), but their routine thyroid blood tests are within normal ranges (though usually on the extreme low range of normal; see below). People with functional low thyroid—and you know who you are—walk around certain that they have a low thyroid condition, but no one believes them."

"Although many people with low thyroid symptoms can be normal weight or even thin.) They tend to be anxious, and nervous with palpitations and terrible insomnia, due to high noradrenaline. They startle easily and have trouble waking up. In addition, many women with low thyroid have regular menstrual cycles, but the cycles are very heavy, with prolonged bleeding; swollen, tender breasts; and bad PMS due to blunted progesterone (progesterone receptors that don't work normally when thyroid hormones are low)."

"They don't even have symptoms that could prompt the doctor to prescribe any of the standard cancer-detecting tests. It should raise everyone's eyebrows that 30 - 40 times as many cases of thyroid, pancreatic, and prostate cancer are found in autopsy than are detected by doctors. The British medical journal Lancet published a study in 1993 that showed early screening often leads to unnecessary treatment. The reason for that? Although 33 percent of autopsies reveal prostate cancer only 1 percent die from it. After age 75, half of males may have prostate cancer, but only 2 percent die from it."

"Normally, however, the bacterium has hidden itself well enough within the white blood cells attempting to engulf it that its victim notices no symptoms until the invasion reaches its goal: the lymphatic system, which stretches throughout the entite body. It is the perfect highway for the Y. pestis cells, which are reproducing as fast as they can turn human protein into more bactetia. Once inside the lymphatic system, the sheer bulk of bacteria causes the lymph nodes to swell, heat, and become tender."

"Medical Predicaments Every person with a sound medical background knows that the symptom of an illness is not the real illness, yet the majority of doctors today treat the symptoms as if they were the disease. Without knowing the causes of the vast majority of the over 40,000 listed diseases, medical textbooks and practitioners nevertheless speak of "effective treatments" for these diseases. The disease agencies that were originally set up to protect the population against false claims of cures insist that only medical drugs can "diagnose and cure diseases."
- Andreas Moritz, Cancer Is Not A Disease - It's A Survival Mechanism (Get the book.)

"Removing the cause(s) of an illness almost never requires a separate approach that deals with the symptoms of the illness, for these would disappear on their own once the underlying causes are addressed. Unless used for emergencies, costly methods of medical intervention, such as allopathic drugs, complex diagnostic procedures, radiation, and surgery are unnecessary. They also deceive patients and are potentially harmful to their health.2 At least 900,000 people die each year in the United States alone because of side effects caused by these symptom-suppressing, alleviating approaches."

- Andreas Moritz, Cancer Is Not A Disease - It's A Survival Mechanism (Get the book.)

"The system lures unsuspecting people into having their symptoms treated, promising them relief while actually ensuring that the side-effects from these treatments will almost certainly turn them into patients for life. The result is a permanent and ever-increasing source of income for drug companies, shareholders, medical institutions and medical practitioners. If universal health care becomes a reality in the U.S., we will also experience a massive escalation of diseases and disease-related fatalities."
