    “Health is freedom from pain in the physical body, a state of well being; freedom from passion on the emotional plane, resulting in a dynamic state of serenity and calm; and freedom from selfishness in the mental sphere, having as a result total unification with Truth. A truly healthy individual should therefore combine both divine qualities of Love and Wisdom.”

    –George Vithoulkas, A New Model for Health and Disease: Suggesting an Explanation for the Explosion of: AIDS, Cancer, Asthma, Candida, Epilepsy, Alzheimer's, Tuberculosis, Schizophrenia, Multiple Sclerosis, Allergic Conditions, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome New Expanded Edition. North Sporades, Greece: International Academy of Classical Homeopathy, 2008. Page 66.

    “Peace. It does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble or hard work. It means to be in the midst of those things and still be calm in your heart.”


    “The role of deficiency in causing disease is carried a step further by Dr. Max Gerson in his text for doctors, A Cancer Therapy—The Results of Fifty Cases. He exposes the depletion of farm soil from chemical fertilization as early as the 1930s and concludes that the depletion subsequentially affects nutritional levels in the plants growing in depleted soil.”

    –“Does Medicine Have a Bad Attitude?” by James P. Carter, which appeared in Suppressed Inventions & Other Discoveries: Revealing the World's Greatest Secrets of Science and Medicine by Jonathan Eisen. Garden City Park, New York: Avery Publishing Group, 1999. ISBN# 0–89529–809–0. Pages 11.

    “In time, [Royal Raymond] Rife was able to prove that the cancer micro–organism had four forms:

    1. BX (carcinoma);

    2. BY (sarcoma—larger than BX);

    3. Monococcoid form in the monocytes of the blood of over 90 percent of cancer patients. When properly stained, this form can be readily seen with a standard research microscope;

    4. Crytomyces pleomorphia fungi—identical morphologically to that of the orchid and of the mushroom.”

    –“Royal Raymond Rife and the Cancer Cure That Worked!” by Barry Lynes, which appeared in Suppressed Inventions & Other Discoveries: Revealing the World's Greatest Secrets of Science and Medicine by Jonathan Eisen. Garden City Park, New York: Avery Publishing Group, 1999. ISBN# 0–89529–809–0. Pages 135–136.

    “Norman Cousins did it, the publisher who was dying of cancer. He declared “No way am I checking out” and decided to spend his time in a state of laughter. He knew instinctively that if he could reverse the frequencies in his body, it would heal itself. So from his hospital bed he watched only funny movies, read funny books, had friends tell him jokes, and cured himself completely of the cancer that had raked his body. Then he wrote a book about it.…”

    –Lynn Grabhorn, Excuse Me, Your Life is Waiting: The Astonishing Power of Feelings. Charlottesville, Virginia: Hampton Roads Publishing Company, Inc., 2003. Pages 232–233.

    “Lying on his death bed, revered Reb Zusya was very upset and crying, tears streaming down his face.

    His students asked with great concern, “Reb Zusya, why are you upset? Why are you crying? Are you afraid when you die you will be asked why you were not more like Moses?”

    Reb Zusya replied, “I am not afraid that the Holy One will ask me, ‘Zusya, why were you not more like Moses?’ Rather, I fear that he will say, ‘Zusya, why were you not Zusya?’””

    –Rabbi Zusya (Buber and Marx 1947), appearing in Core Health: The Quantum Way to Inner Power by Dr. Ed Carlson and Dr. Livia Kohn.

    “Life–long enemies, the karate masters Miyagi and Sato are close to fighting to the death, when a typhoon comes and Sato is trapped under a fallen tree. Miyagi uses his skill to save Sato's life. Sato repents his animosity and comes to speak to Miyagi. Bowing deeply, he says: “Please forgive me, Miyagi.” He bows respectfully again.

    “Oh Sato, my friend, nothing to forgive.”

    “Please, Miyagi, forgive me.” He bows respectfully again.

    “Sato, my friend, nothing to forgive.”

    “How can you say nothing to forgive? Forty years ago you left the island of Okinawa because of my anger. I wanted to fight you to the death. I would not even make peace when asked by my revered Sensei. I destroyed part of the village. How can you say ‘nothing to forgive’?”

    “Sato, my friend, Miyagi no take offense.””

    Karate Kid II, appearing in Core Health: The Quantum Way to Inner Power by Dr. Ed Carlson and Dr. Livia Kohn.

    “Taoist story of ancient China:

    “When Yen Ho was about to take up his duties as tutor to the heir Fo Ling, Duke of Wei, he went to Ch'u Po Yu for advice. ‘I have to deal,’ he said, ‘with a man of depraved and murderous disposition. . . . How is one to deal with a man of this sort?’ ‘I am glad,’ said Ch'u Po Yu, ‘that you asked this question. . . . The first thing you must do is not to improve him, but to improve yourself.’””

    –Story told in Martin Luther King, Jr. on Leadership: Inspiration & Wisdom for Challenging Times by Donald T. Phillips. Page 271.

    ““Regardless of present circumstances and despite the etiology of an illness's manifestation, one's full power as a creator of future experiences, as a self–healer, lies entirely here in the present. Use medicine as a mantra that magnifies the vibrations of your intent; let your medicines echo the vibrations of your impassioned desire to regain the experience of your innate health, vitality, and well–being.”

    …“Physicians and herbalists, like medicine, can be distinct allies for a person who regards and trusts them. They are influential companions for anyone who believes they can help them and have requested this help. An attending herbalist or physician can skillfully soothe and mend another person's physical malaise and make them more comfortable, but herbalists and physicians do not 'heal' others, no one heals another.” Chiron emphasized, “One can only heal oneself.” [my emphasis]

    “When I use the term heal, I mean reconnecting to one's Source energy by one's removal of inner resistance to the flow of life force, so that inner ease returns, harmony between one's mind and spirit is reestablished, and the experience of one's intrinsic well–being is revived.””

    –featured in James Green, The Herbal Medicine–Maker's Handbook: A Home Manual. Freedom, California: The Crossing Press, 2000. Pages 330–331.

    “Understanding is having the ability to see things clearly for what they are and not what they present themselves to be.”

    –AZ, spoken in an introduction to Understanding by Nas on a mixtape

    “Muslims tell the story of a mullah (a magic figure in Sufism) who finds a cheese sandwich in his lunch pail one day. The next day and the day after that he also finds a cheese sandwich in his lunch pail. After ten days he says, ‘I am sick and tired of these cheese sandwiches.’ When his co–workers ask him, ‘Why don't you ask your wife to make you another kind of sandwich,’ he answers ‘But I am not married. I make my own sandwiches.’”

    “So awareness is needed to break out of old patterns.”

    –From “A Muslim View of September 11” By Grace Lee Boggs, Michigan Citizen, October 21–27, 2001

    “Honor your body, which is your representative in this universe. Its magnificence is no accident. It is the framework through which your works must come; through which the spirit and the spirit within the spirit speaks. The flesh and the spirit are two phases of your actuality in space and time. Who ignores one, falls apart in shambles. So it is written…”

    –From the Sumari text, The Sacred Script of the Covenant [Quoted in Vithoulkas, George. The Science of Homeopathy. New York: Grove Press, Inc., 1980. Page 8.]

    “He who considers disease results to be the disease itself, and expects to do away with these as disease, is insane. It is an insanity in medicine, an insanity that has grown out of the milder forms of mental disorder in science, crazy whims. The bacteria are results of disease. In the course of time we will be able to show perfectly that the microscopical little fellows are not the disease cause, but that they come after, that they are scavengers accompanying the disease, and that they are perfectly harmless in every respect. They are the outcome of the disease, are present wherever the disease is, and by the microscope it has been discovered that every pathological result has its corresponding bacteria. The Old School consider these the cause, but we will be able to show that disease cause is much more subtle than anything that can be shown by a microscope. We will be able to show you by a process of reasoning, step by step, the folly of hunting for disease cause by the implements of the senses.”

    –James Tyler Kent, AM, MD, The Art and Science of Homeopathic Medicine. Mineola, NY: Dover Publications, Inc., 2002. Page 22. [Originally published as Lectures on Homœopathic Philosophy in 1900.]

    “The miasms that are at the present day upon the human race are complicated a thousandfold by allopathic treatment. Every external manifestation of the miasm has in itself a tendency to straighten mankind, but the human race is being violently damaged and diseases are being complicated for the reason that these outward expressions are forced to disappear by the application of some violent or stimulating drug. At the present day nobody will acknowledge that he had the itch in his childhood, until it is seen by some intelligent mother that it is wise to tell the doctor everything. The itch is looked upon as a disgraceful affair; so is everything that has a similar correspondence; because the itch in itself has a correspondence with adultery, only one is adultery as to internal and the other to externals, one succeeds the other. So it is with all miasms.”

    –James Tyler Kent, AM, MD, The Art and Science of Homeopathic Medicine. Mineola, NY: Dover Publications, Inc., 2002. Page 137. [Originally published as Lectures on Homœopathic Philosophy in 1900.]

    “… The physician must perceive in the disease that which is to be cured, and the curative indication in each particular case of disease is the totality of the symptoms, i.e., the disease is represented or expressed by the totality of the symptoms, and this totality (which is the speech of nature) is not itself the esse of the disease, it only represents the disorder in the internal economy. This totality, which is really external, a manifestation in the tissues, will arrange itself into form to present, as it were, to the physician the internal disorder.”

    –James Tyler Kent, AM, MD, The Art and Science of Homeopathic Medicine. Mineola, NY: Dover Publications, Inc., 2002. Page 33. [Originally published as Lectures on Homœopathic Philosophy in 1900.]

    “Today no skin eruption is left to appear. Everything that appears on the skin is quickly suppressed. If that continues for long the human race will disappear from the face of the earth.”

    –James Tyler Kent, AM, MD, Lesser Writings.

    “In our society, the bathroom scale has a following worthy of a political party or religion. An unbelievable number of weight loss gimmicks have been spawned by the American obsession about losing weight.

    Some of them endanger the health of their victims, others merely thin wallets, and almost all fail to cause permanent weight loss. In the rush to shed pounds, a very important question is usually overlooked: How fat am I?

    The scale cannot differentiate between fat pounds and muscle pounds. People automatically assume that a gain in scale weight represents fat weight and that a loss in scale weight is fat loss. Thus, you often hear someone exclaim, I've lost six pounds in one day! It's physiologically impossible to lose six pounds of fat in one day. That someone has actually lost water––which will be replaced. Fluctuations in scale weight do not necessarily represent changes in body fat, and that's what counts.

    The scale does not indicate how fat a person is because both fat and muscle (and some other things, including water) contribute to the total weight. The term overweight only refers to body weight in excess of the average weight for a specific height. The term underweight only refers to the body weight below the average weight for height.

    The scale is prejudiced against stocky, muscular people just as it is biased in favor of thin, slightly built people. What tells the tale is not total weight but body composition.

    Body composition divides weight into two categories. One is lean body mass, of which muscle is the major component. The other category is fat. What is really important is how much of a person's weight is fat. This is expressed as percent body fat.”

    –Ellen Coleman, RD, MA, MPH, Eating For Endurance Fourth Edition. Boulder, Colorado: Bull Publishing Company, 2003. Chapter 13 — “Body Composition: Debunking the Myth of Bathroom Scales/The True Measure of Fatness”.
