"Week 0 week 1 week 2 week 3 week 4 week 5 Study 2: Neurotransmitter Precursor Lozenge?Serotonin and Dopamine Study Participants Twenty participants were recruited and divided into two groups according to gender—eleven women and nine men. The data subdivides these groups (post-testing) based on whether they received a placebo versus the active ingredients. Product Ingredients Proprietary blend of amino acids known to be neurotransmitter precursors were dispersed into a lozenge base."

"A week earlier, I had completed the exam and given my blood. A week later I repeated the PSA, which once again was high, followed a few 21 weeks later by several tense days at the Mayo Clinic. The biopsy was negative. Finally I exhaled. God only knows the damage to my health from all the stress brought on by this series of tests. "See, I told you there was nothing to worry about," said my internist. "Id strongly urge you to have a PSA test every six months," she concluded. Which I've done. My PSA is still high. "I strongly recommend another biopsy," intones my urologist at each appointment."

"The dose was regulated at one tablet per day for the first week and two tablets per day for the second week. After two weeks the subjects were allowed to increase or decrease their daily dosage with the top limit set at three tablets per day. Treatment was continued for a six-week period during which time seventeen subjects received deanol and eighteen subjects received placebo therapy. After six weeks the double-blind portion of the experiment was terminated. All subjects were then placed on DMAE therapy and the experiment was continued for an additional six-week period."

"Kgper week for 15 weeks, coadministered with DEN), the development rate for liver cancer was approximately 14 percent, compared to 100 percent in animals given DEN only. In rats given ginseng curatively, i.e., after development of liver cancer nodules (15 g-Kg-1 per week for eight weeks, 20 weeks after DEN treatment), hepatoma nodules were smaller in ginseng-treated animals, with better structural preservation of hepatic tissue, than in animals given DEN alone. The average life span of the gin-seng/DEN treated animal group was 73 days, compared to 42 days for DEN treated animals."

"An "initiation phase" group of animals received MAK-5 for one week before and one week after DMBA was administered. A "promotion phase" group was given MAK-5 continuously, beginning one week after DMBA was administered. A third combined group was given MAK-5 throughout the experiment. After 18 weeks, only 25% of the animals receiving MAK-5 during the promotion phase showed tumors, as compared to 67% of animals in the control group. However, in this study with MAK-5, there did not appear to be comparable protection during the initiation phase."

"One of the "active" women did not complete the study. Each week the participants completed a detailed symptom-rating sheet. By the end of the six-week study, a significant difference in symptom rating occurred in nineteen of the twenty-three symptoms, when comparing the two groups. The average improvement over all of the symptoms was 3.5 times greater (+350%) in the active than the placebo group. The top seven most affected symptoms were improved fifty-five times more (5,500%) in the active group than in the placebo group."

"They found that women who walked two to three hours at an easy pace each week "performed significantly better on these tests of cognition than women who walked less than one hour per week." Even less cognitive decline was noted in women who walked six or more hours each week. These results parallel another benefit of regular walking among women. A previous six-year breast cancer study that included data on more than 74,000 women over the age of fifty, found that women who exercise regularly have lower breast cancer rates."

"Every Sunday, plan the meals you will have for the week, including breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Figure out what ingredients you have and what you may need and then do your grocery shopping for the entire week. You could even do some of the cooking on Sunday and just use leftovers for meals during the week. Prepare for meals in the evening Set aside 15-20 minutes before you go to bed each night to prepare for the following days' meals. You can get out all of the ingredients and also do any of the initial preparation work such as mixing, soaking, chopping or thawing as necessary."

"Canadian researchers involved in the Cross-National Panic Study reported that both Xanax and placebo groups were averaging about two panic attacks a week when the study ended. But the patients who took Xanax for eight weeks and then went off the drug were suffering nearly seven attacks a week after two weeks of withdrawal—while those who stopped taking the placebo continued to suffer only about two attacks a week. In addition, the Cross-National Panic Study showed that imipramine, a drug already on the market, was as effective (or, from another point of view, as ineffective) as Xanax."

"My practice deepened more than I knew was possible after that awe-filled week. Although I'd made forward progress by learning mindfulness on my own, I'd have developed this skill faster and with greater benefit had I taken formal training earlier. With classes and workshops in mindfulness meditation springing up in cities all over the world—in hospitals, in workplace wellness programs, and in yoga studios—there's every reason to enroll in one to jump-start your ability to become more mindfully aware. You have nothing to lose but a lot of gratuitous negativity."

"I can find myself ruminating about the long list of things I should have done yesterday, last week, or last month, and think how much sooner I'd be in my office, catching up on work, had I only driven my car instead. I think, why did the bus driver stop here for so long? Needless to say, with these internal rants running free, there is little to no space for positivity to take root. Oddly, even the simple act of explaining why a good thing is good can zap your positivity. It turns out that unexplained positivity lasts longer than positivity we analyze until we fully understand it."

"Calculate the number of drinks you have in a day or a week. A drink is 4 ounces of wine, one beer or 1 ounce of hard liquor. So if you have three 6-ounce glasses of wine (18 ounces), this would be the equivalent of 4.5 drinks. After you know where you now stand, you can start to plan your detox process. Just as in your detox from sugars, you will want to determine your style for making change. You can either taper down and then stop or you can stop all at once. Most people find it much easier to go for sobriety all at once."

"When Tony and I talked, I outlined a plan that included spending a week doing Step 1 of my program—keeping a food journal—before he made any changes to his eating habits. But Tony wanted more. He left my office and decided he would stop eating sugar and drinking caffeine the next day. And he did. Three days later he had a severe migraine and felt as if he had been run over by a ten-ton truck, both of which are signs of sugar and caffeine withdrawal. It was clear to Tony that my program "didn't work." The truth is that what Tony did doesn't work."

"That week I came to believe that oneness isn't merely a perception. It's what is. Positivity opens your mind and allows you to appreciate what is. Other moments—neutral ones and especially negative ones—hide "what is" from us. They have their own agenda that takes us away from the truth of oneness. By design, negativity inspires you to protect yourself, which often means pulling back and separating yourself from others. Also by design, positivity tells you that it's safe to recognize that you are not separate after all."

"Even though flowers are fertilized and pods ripen throughout the year, there are usually two major harvests, as the pods will keep on the trunk of the tree for several weeks, and as harvested pods for another week. However, modern techniques now allow for continuous harvests. Harvesting-must be done with care, so as not to damage the cushions, which continually produce flowers, and therefore fruit."

"President Nixon had recently addressed the nation, urging all Americans to turn down their thermostats, form car pools and use no more than 10 gallons a week. Businesses were asked to halve the lighting in work areas and to turn down lights in halls and storage areas. Washington would set the example by keeping the national Christmas tree on the White House front lawn turned off. The nation, fat and complacent, used to consuming energy like so many cheeseburgers, was in shock, forced, for the first time, to go on a diet. There was talk of rationing books being printed."

"Emissions also seemed to follow other natural biological rhythms; similarities were noted by day or night, by week, by month, as though the body were following the world's biorhythms as well as its own. So far, Popp had studied only healthy individuals and found an exquisite coherence at the quantum level. But what kind of light was present in a person who was ill? He tried out his machine on a series of cancer patients. In every instance, the cancer patients had lost these natural periodic rhythms and also their coherence. The lines of internal communication were scrambled."

"I even worried I might have a brain tumor. A week later my doctor called. "I have good news and bad news," she told me. "The good news is that you are not in menopause and you don't have a brain tumor. The bad news is that I don't know what is happening. Your lab tests and your physical exam results are all normal." Frustrated and depressed, Emily came into my private practice in Addictive Nutrition. She told me she was a recovering alcoholic with nine years of successful sobriety and had heard that I was using nutrition to help people with her symptoms."

"Go back to the very first page and look over your entries for the last week. Without judgment, pay attention to what you see. Go back over what you have written and try to remember each day and each meal. Don't try to figure out what it means. Don't jump ahead and try to analyze everything. Now examine the times when you ate. Take a separate piece of paper and write down a summary showing the dates and the times you ate. Don't include what foods you ate or how you felt."

"I recommend preparing a raw salad once a week. Certain fresh vegetables can be stored for quite a period in a refrigerator and will keep quite well. There are a whole variety to choose from: carrots, celery, radishes, cauliflower, broccoli, peppers, red cabbage, green onions, snow peas, string beans. These can all be cut up and mixed together. They can be stored in a plastic bag or sealed container. When mealtime comes, a person can take a handful of these vegetables and then perhaps add some other ones that don't keep as well, such as tomatoes or sprouts."

"I'll also ask the patient to keep a record of his or her usual diet and anything special that they ingest for a week or so. Then I put all those pieces together with a general physical exam and see if the pattern suggests some of these other causes." Patient education is key at this point. "Finally, when I get a picture and it's pretty obvious what is happening, I educate the patient sufficiently so that he or she can make an informed decision about going forward with the therapy," Dr. Stoll says. "

"He contacted Bill Church to see if he could change his study and use some of his grant money to fly Swann out to California for a week. A short, chubby man with amiable features, Swann arrived dressed absurdly in a white cowboy hat with white jacket and Levis, like some visiting rock star. Hal grew convinced that he was wasting Bill Church's money. Two days after Swann arrived, Hal took him down to the basement of the Varian Hall physics building. Hal pointed to the magnetometer. He asked Ingo to attempt to alter its magnetic field."

"Take a full week to resonate on each emotion and build a portfolio for that feeling that truly moves you. People find that building the portfolio can itself be a deeply rewarding and uplifting experience. Don't miss out! The idea of building these portfolios came to me from James Pawelski, director of education and senior scholar at the world's foremost Positive Psychology Center, at the University of Pennsylvania.10 As a budding positive psychologist, James was invited to interview for a job as an assistant professor at Vanderbilt University. He was both excited and nervous."

"Spitzer, who is probably, after Freud, the most influential psychiatrist of the twentieth century, worked on DSM-III for six years, often up to eighty hours a week. In order to appease both groups, Spitzer brought a centrist, "theory-neutral" approach to his work. In other words, he based diagnoses not on theories and traditions about how they might have arisen, but on objective observation and symptoms lists, on "the here and now."

"Within a week, everybody in Redding knew who had talked to the government, even though I was identified on the FBI affidavit only as 'D1.' " Stories appeared in the Redding Record Searchlight, reporting expressions of outrage among the local citizenry—not at Moon and Realyvasquez's alleged perfidy, but rather at their persecution by the federal government. The paper quoted Rhonda Arnold, a medical assistant in Moon's office, saying, "I've never met a man as honorable as Dr. Moon."

"An orthopedic surgeon became fixated on doing more surgeries than any other physician in his group, sometimes working eighty hours a week to keep up his productivity. The more surgeries he did, the sloppier he got, until he was routinely committing errors and getting sued for malpractice. In one case, he put in the wrong size screw to repair a patient's bone and refused to correct it when the head of the screw poked through the patient's skin."

"He commuted to Cambridge, Massachusetts, from his home near Stowe, bunking in Cambridge with his colleague Jack Fowler during the week. Too much medicine While Wennberg continued gathering his data on variations in how doctors cared for their patients, the nation's medical bill was rising far faster than the Social Security Administration had anticipated, or budgeted. There were several reasons for the dramatic increase, one of them being more doctors, and in particular more specialists, than ever before."
