"Each of the colors has attributes that affect us physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually, and we can experience them on any one or more of these levels. In working with plants, we experience color in flowers, veins, stalks, juices, and roots, so don't limit your color exploration to just the flowers. You may find that the red juice from a plant is what gives you the clearest understanding about its color association. Other observations you want to be aware of are colors that seem odd, like the purple dots you will find on the stem of poison hemlock."
- Pam Montgomery, Plant Spirit Healing: A Guide to working with Plant Consciousness (Get the book.)

"The most important aspect of Plant Spirit Healing is your relationship to the plants and secondly your understanding of the modality you are working in. On the other hand, you don't have to work in any of these modalities. They merely provide a framework within which you may work. It may be that your relationship with plant spirits is such that they give you clear instructions on exactly what needs to be done to bring balance for another person and that those instructions don't include any other modalities."

"By opening my vision, it freed me to explore a new way of working, a balance between the moment of connection and the extended moment of revelation. This second step in my work, the extended moment, is the process of revealing the true nature of the image in the computer, of painting with light. I stay connected to the place of magic experienced while taking a picture out in the woods, under a cloud-filled sky at the transition from night to day, or in the place of wonder as light dances on the surface of a pool filled with golden light."

"All this time she had been working so hard to "figute out" her plant ally with no results, but when she finally let go to receive her plant ally, it appeared. She went on to have a very close and intimate relationship with Motherwort and has received an enormous amount of healing from this ally. The "spiral of life," as the triple spiral is referred to, is a map for us to follow."

"Living by a code of moderation with regard to eating, sleeping, and working will enable you to maintain an efficient and vital energy system throughout life. Another old saying recommends that we spend one-third of our life sleeping, one-third working, and one-third enjoying recreational pursuits. This wise formula maintains balance on all levels of life: physical, mental, and spiritual. Overworking upsets this much-needed state of equilibrium among our body, mind, and spirit. 16."

"We need to think of their situation this way: their behavior is not working for them, nor is it working for anyone else. It doesn't allow them to form the relationships and friendships that they deserve, and it's keeping them from enjoying and contributing to the overall family harmony. While we're doing everything else—eating well, exercising, and sleeping regularly—we need to also find ways to gradually but directly modify our child's behavior."
- Jay Gordon, The ADD and ADHD Cure: The Natural Way to Treat Hyperactivity and Refocus Your Child (Get the book.)

"For the chronic insomniac, oddly enough, sleeping drugs often don't work, or they stop working after a few weeks. Sleep experts say a more-effective method for true insomnia involves behavior conditioning, which can reset the chemicals in the brain that let us drift off. These chemicals can be controlled, with help from a sleep expert, by such seemingly simple activities as preparing for bed at a consistent time and turning down the lights an hour before bedtime."

"For those with little time and those trying to save money, as well as dieters simply working to reach their weight-loss goals, beans are the answer. If you have a can of beans in the pantry, you have a meal. Turkey: The High-Protein/ High-Nutrient Solution High protein, low protein. Most people who have paid any attention to dieting and weight-loss recommendations in recent years have been bombarded with advice about the pros and cons of high-protein diets."

"The SuperFoodsRx Diet is the first diet to help you achieve weight loss by a careful combination of specific foods and exercise working in concert to maximize your body's ability to shed weight. Yogurt for Your Waistline It's been gratifying to see the explosive growth in the varieties of yogurt available in most every supermarket. It's almost hard to remember that there once was a time when it was difficult to find more than one or perhaps two brands."

"Because building strong bones takes calcium working along with other constituents including vitamin D, boron, vitamin C, and magnesium, among others. And exercise figures into the equation as well since it's the weight-bearing exercise that stimulates bones to use those multiple nutrients to build, rebuild, repair, and preserve strong and healthy bones. In the SuperFoodsRx Diet, synergy again is key to effectiveness but in this instance it's the synergy of all of the SuperFoods that you'll be eating together that will help you feel and look better than ever and of course lose weight."

"But as the miles ticked by, his stride started to feel funny, and by mile eighteen his swollen knee stopped working. He had fractured his femur. Every pounding step should have caused debilitating pain, but Pyles says he didn't notice it. It had to be the endorphins. Pain is related to depression, and after Pert's discovery, others conducted experiments to see if endorphins were indeed the link between exercise and elevated mood. They expected to find that endorphin-blocking drugs would prevent runner's high, but there were conflicting results."

"Wennberg spent his summers at Spirit Lake, on the flanks of the volcano, fishing and working at a YMCA camp. In the winters, as a teenager, he served on the ski patrol on Mount Hood. Although Wennberg excelled in science and math, he graduated from Stanford in 1956 with a degree in literature, intending to get his Ph.D. in German literature and teach. But when it came time to read the Bible in Gothic, Wennberg realized he was more interested in science than words."

"Moreover, in the don Juan tradition, this first lucid dream seemed filled with auspicious symbols—becoming a speck of awareness floating through my palm prints, maintaining the dream, working on awareness outside of the "administration building" (symbol for my own inner authority, perhaps). I was excited. Still, it seemed so paradoxical—becoming conscious in the unconscious. What a concept! Like some teenage magician of the dreaming realm, I had done what scientists at the time proclaimed could not be done."

"Medical records seized from the hospital were given to several outside heart specialists, who found that in twenty-seven years at Redding, Moon had catheterized some 3c,ooo patients, a huge number for just one physician working in a lightly populated, largely rural area. In the opinion of the outside specialists, between one quarter and one half of the patients who underwent catheterization or surgery at Redding Medical Center had been operated on inappropriately."

"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."

"It all starts when the amygdala sounds the survival call, but unlike the normal stress response, in anxiety the all-clear signal isn't working properly. Our cognitive processors fail to tell us there is no problem or that it has passed and we can relax. There is so much noise in the mind from the sensory input of physical and mental tension that it clouds our ability to clearly assess the situation. The misinterpretation stems partly from an amygdala that isn't effectively controlled by the prefrontal cortex."

"I just got too busy and forgot the benefits of working out," she says. "Now I feel like I have my brain back." HOLES IN THE THEORY It wasn't until we were able to take good pictures of the brain that we really began to understand how various medical treatments and exercise break us out of the bonds of depression. In the early 1990s, using MRI, we noticed bright patches on brain scans of certain depressed patients. The hyperintensities, as they are known, appeared in the white matter, the portion of densely bundled axons that connect neurons in the gray matter of the cortex."

"By the third century, the scribes had transcribed the body of oral law known as the Mishnah; by the end of the fifth century, rabbis working in Jerusalem had produced the first of the two books of commentary called the Talmud; by the end of the sixth, in Persia, the other. As the textual mastery exhibited by the scribes grew in value, the importance of heredity declined."

"He'd just finished working on a long-term aging study designed to see if the people whose minds hold up best share anything in common. Among those with the least cognitive decline over a four-year period, three factors turned up: education, self-efficacy, and exercise. The first two weren't so surprising, but Cotman was curious about the last. "I got to thinking about what the heck was really going on," he says. "The assumption was that exercise didn't act on the brain, but my take on it was that somehow it had to be the brain."

"Professors see more money in working on the next blockbuster heartburn medicine than in studying the environmental causes of cancer. They and the companies that financially support them are more interested in developing hair loss treatments and other lifestyle drugs for rich Americans than in discovering cures for diseases like malaria, which is devastating poor countries and killing a child every thirty seconds."

"Though many MCS cases seem to start with an identifiable trigger (like working in a new building), some have no apparent trigger. So far, no good consensus definition for this condition exists. Based on the available literature, I have tried to arrive at a way of diagnosing this condition. Patients with these complaints often seek care from doctors specializing in a field called environmental or occupational medicine. I'm not that kind of doctor, so I don't see patients whose primary complaint has to do with odors and chemicals."

"A group of German psychopharmacologists have been working on another drug from this class, called tropisetron, with potentially fewer side effects. They published a series of studies in 2000 and 2001 suggesting that tropisetron could greatly relieve FM pain. The fact that side effects were still a problem may explain why little else about this drug has appeared in the medical literature since then. However, pharmaceutical companies are now able to "engineer" the drugs they develop so they can hit the target receptors while triggering fewer side effects."

"Harry was fortunate in working with Pennsylvania criminal attorney George Matangos who believed that his client was a good man driven mad by Paxil and he was eager to utilize my expertise. In the conclusion to my hefty 11,000-word report to the court about the criminal charges against Harry, I summarized the reasoning process that goes into determining if a drug has caused or contributed to an act of violence—the same reasoning I have described more elaborately in my scientific papers and books."

"She called the superintendent's office to see if anyone had permission to be working up there. The answer was "no" and security was contacted. The front-desk manager quickly reached the roof of the main building where he observed a man sitting on the edge of the tower roof across the way. The individual was described as having glazed eyes, moving slowly, and acting confused. The manager called out, "Are you a guest here?" "No," the man replied. Showing no emotion, the man sitting on the edge of the roof explained, "I'm from this area and I wanted to see how it looks from up here."

"Thus, strategies to improve absorption could provide more energy to the working muscle. It is likely feeding of a single carbohydrate source (e.g., glucose or maltodextrin) at high rates results in sodium-dependent glucose transporters (SGLT1) becoming saturated. Once these transporters are saturated, feeding more of that carbohydrate will not result in greater absorption and increased oxidation rates. Intestinal perfusion studies have suggested that the ingestion of carbohydrates that use different transporters might increase total carbohydrate absorption [48] (Fig. 1)."

"In the last two decades, the pharmaceutical industry had become adept at working behind the scenes to get people talking about their products. Executives found this tactic appealing because they could avoid government regulations that limited what could be promised in advertisements. In ads, companies cannot overstate the benefits of a drug or understate the harm that can come from taking it. But if covert corporate marketers are clever, if they create a buzz-generating event that looks real and unplanned, neither the public nor the regulators may discover what is really going on."

"On the SlimDown and as you proceed to the FlexPlan when you're ready, you'll be working with the SuperFoodsRx categories. We've divided the SuperFoods into three categories to show you how to work them into your diet. Your ultimate daily goal is to choose from each of these categories at every meal, every day. Knowing the categories allows you to structure an excellent, healthy weight-loss diet wherever you find yourself. It's our shorthand to healthy weight loss."

"We've come to a time when decisions on how to treat a disease have as great a chance of being hatched in a corporate marketing department as by a group of independent doctors working to improve the public's health. In too many cases, whether a medicine helps or harms a patient has become secondary to how much it will bring shareholders in profits. That is the story of this book, the one that doesn't get told. In its broadest terms, this book is about how America's for-profit medical system—filled with incentives to make money and disincentives for good care—has failed."

"Sttucturally, the alternating columns and cornices distribute the weight of the galleries and arcades to the floor, and serve as ties between the main piers; the colonnades link the primary structure, resting on those massive main piers with theit buttresses, to the othet "working" structure. Their esthetic value may have been even mote important to the architects; the marble columns that line the arcades are of four different varieties: white from Marmara, yellow from Algeria, red from Anatolia, pink from Siga."
