Professor Arnold Ehret, revered as the father of naturopathy, is the most important pioneering researcher and author regarding the health and preservation of the human body. No other scientist, doctor, dietitian, or author has surpassed Ehret's work concerning the cause and cure of chronic disease and human illness. Through years of research he rediscovered that the human body is an "air-gas engine" that is powered exclusively by oxygen and that a diet consisting of starchless fruits and green-leafy vegetables (mucusless foods) is the only food fit to be eat by humans. Among other important writings, Ehret produced a brilliant dietetic treatise entitled the Mucusless Diet Healing System/Rational Fasting which offers a methodical approach to eating that can be used regardless of age, gender, race, or sickness to achieve superior health.

The Illness Narratives

Suffering, Healing, And The Human Condition

Author: Arthur Kleinman

Publisher: Hachette UK

View: 636

From one of America's most celebrated psychiatrists, the book that has taught generations of healers why healing the sick is about more than just diagnosing their illness. Modern medicine treats sick patients like broken machines -- figure out what is physically wrong, fix it, and send the patient on their way. But humans are not machines. When we are ill, we experience our illness: we become scared, distressed, tired, weary. Our illnesses are not just biological conditions, but human ones. It was Arthur Kleinman, a Harvard psychiatrist and anthropologist, who saw this truth when most of his fellow doctors did not. Based on decades of clinical experience studying and treating chronic illness, The Illness Narratives makes a case for interpreting the illness experience of patients as a core feature of doctoring. Before Being Mortal, there was The Illness Narratives. It remains today a prescient and passionate case for bridging the gap between patient and practitioner.

Human Diseases from Wildlife

View: 105

Human Diseases from Wildlife presents information on the most prevalent and serious zoonotic diseases in the US and Canada, some of which have been national headline news like anthrax, influenza, and West Nile virus. Diseases that are caused by pathogens with the ability to infect both humans and animals are known as zoonotic diseases, which literally means "disease from animals." The issue of human–wildlife disease interactions is a growing concern as humans continue to interface with wildlife. People who handle wildlife including field workers, wildlife professionals, trappers, and hunters want to know about potential diseases, risks, and how to protect themselves from disease. This book was written because many people are uninformed about zoonotic diseases. This lack of information causes some people to have a heightened fear of zoonotic diseases, preventing them from enjoying wildlife or spending time outdoors. Other people needlessly expose themselves to disease by neglecting simple precautions. This book includes information on bacterial, spirochetal, rickettsial, and viral diseases as well as macroparasites and emerging zoonotic diseases. More than two dozen diseases are covered including rabies, tularemia, baylisascariasis, salmonellosis, leprosy, Lyme disease, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, and swimmer’s itch. Each chapter contains the history of the disease, symptoms in humans, medical treatment, transmission of pathogens to humans, the role of wildlife as vectors, and methods to minimize risk. The diseases people can contract from wild animals can be both threatening and fascinating, and the book includes interesting information to make it more enjoyable to read.

Volume 32 of Advances in Genetics: Incorporating Molecular Genetic Medicine focuses on important and fast moving subjects in modern human genetics and medicine. This volume also marks the new collaboration with Associate Editors Dr. Theodore Friedmann and Dr. Francesco Giannelli. Chapter 1 considers the potential effectiveness and consequences of gene therapy on subjects over time. Chapter 2 discusses recent research on Gaucher's disease, the first disorder to demonstrate the clinical benefits of enzyme replacement therapy. Chapter 3 describes current findings on diabetes, a disease difficult to conquer due to its variety and its genetic and environmental causes. The major forms of hemophilia and the need for alternative therapies are discussed in Chapter 4. Chapter 5 presents hypercholesterolemia as a model for understanding the causes and treatments of human diseases on a molecular level. Chapter 6 probes the basic genetic defects behind phenylketonuria, as well as the possibilities for genetic correction. Chapter 7 covers the fascinating terminal structures of human chromosomes. In the Foreword to Volume 32, Drs. Friedmann and Giannelli suggest: "Progress toward a thorough characterization of the human genome is stunningly rapid and exceeding many of its earliest expectations. Disease-related genes will be falling from the skies faster than we can understand them, and mechanisms responsible for the pathogenesis of disease will be illuminated more quickly and readily than ever before. "With comprehensive and timely reviews, Advances in Genetics incorporating Molecular Genetic Medicine offers with every volume further insight into this expanding field of medicine, supplementing the continued expert coverage of all other areas of genetics pioneered by Advances in Genetics. Key Features * Presents technical and historical overviews of molecular biology applied to disease detection, diagnosis, and treatment * Chronicles the continuing explosion of knowledge in molecular genetic medicine by highlighting current approaches to understanding human illness * Documents the revolution in human and molecular genetics leading to a new field of medicine * Volume 32 marks new collaboration with Associate Editors Dr. Theodore Friedmann and Dr. Francesco Giannelli

Proteases in Human Diseases

View: 494

This book bridges the gap between fundamental research and biomedical and pharmacological applications on proteases. It represents a comprehensive overview of the multifaceted field of proteases in cellular environment and highlights the recently elucidated functions of complex proteolytic systems in different diseases. Several established investigators have elucidated the crucial role of proteases in biological processes, including how proteolytic function and regulation can be combined to develop new strategies of therapeutic interventions. Proteases form one of the largest and most diverse families of enzymes known. It is now clear that proteases are involved in every aspect of life functions of an organism. Under physiological conditions, proteases are regulated by their endogenous inhibitors; however, when the activity of proteases is not regulated appropriately, disease processes can result in. So, there is absolute need for a stringent control of proteolytic activities in cells and tissues. Dysregulation of proteases may cause derangement of cellular signalling network resulting in different pathophysiological conditions such as vascular remodelling, atherosclerotic plaque progression, ulcer and rheumatoid arthritis, Alzheimer disease, cancer metastasis, tumor progression and inflammation. Additionally, many infective microorganisms require proteases for replication or use proteases as virulence factors, which have facilitated the development of protease-targeted therapies for a variety of parasitic diseases.

The relationship between herpesviruses and humans probably dates from thousands of years ago. In the last few decades, many aspects of herpesvirus infections have been understood, such as infections with a range of manifestations (severe, mild, or subclinical). Herpesvirus can remain latent during a lifetime and sometimes their reactivation can cause different clinical features in the patient. Several conditions have been related to herpesvirus reactivation such as complications in transplant organ recipients and immune regulatory modification in the elderly. Aspects of human herpesvirus simples, varicella-zoster virus, and cytomegalovirus are presented and discussed in this book.

What if 'explaining' an illness is one thing, but understanding it is quite another? What if illnesses have life meanings and not just scientific 'explanations' and biological 'causes' or 'cures'? What if the biology of the human body cannot be separated from the biography of the human being? What if the life of the human body cannot be separated from the life of the human being in all its existential dimensions – personal, social and economic? What if every bodily state is at the same time a state of consciousness and vice versa – thus making nonsense of the separation between 'body' and 'mind', medical treatments on the one hand and psychological therapies on the other? Last but not least, what if 'the illness is the cure' - and not something to be cured? In a way that is clear and practically helpful to both lay readers, patients and health professionals alike, this book challenges the most basic assumptions of almost all forms of medicine – 'modern' or 'traditional', 'scientific' or 'spiritual' – namely that illness is something to be cured rather than being the cure. To do so it draws on the work of Illich, Heidegger and many others to introduces a fundamentally new approach to health and illness – 'Life Medicine' and 'Life Doctoring'. Life Doctoring is a new form of non-biomedical therapy for serious and chronic illness. Instead of employing standard forms of medical testing and treatment the Life Doctor is there to help the individual come to an understanding of the ways their own particular illness 'is the cure' – how it is a potential source of new healing understandings of themselves and of a healing transformation of their lives. Life Medicine is a new understanding of health and illness that does not separate science and life, biology and biography, the life of the human body and the life of the human being. Instead its focus is on the larger life context and specific life meanings that particular symptoms and illnesses hold for the individual patient. For as Marx wrote: “The idea of one basis for science and another for life is from the very outset a lie.” This 'lie' unfortunately has dire consequences. For as research by the medical establishment itself has confirmed, conventional biomedical diagnosis and treatment through drugs and surgery is itself the leading cause of premature death – ahead of both cancer and heart disease. By offering an entirely new framework for understanding the essential nature of 'health' and 'illness', Life Doctoring can help patients understand the underlying sense of 'dis-ease' in their lives that lies behind their clinically diagnosed illness or 'disease'. In this way it can also serve to (a) prevent an individual's 'dis-ease manifesting as clinical 'disease', and (b) educate patients about the possible dangers and potentially sickness-causing or 'iatrogenic' effects of many standard forms of biomedical testing and treatment. The continuing monopoly over knowledge of the human body that biomedicine claims has one basic reason – namely that it is not actually 'science-driven' but 'money driven' – turning illness into a source of vast profits for Big Pharma and the corporate health industry as a whole. Many people are angered by the global trend toward the privatisation of medical care or else concerned about the rising costs. Yet the roots of this trend lie in the fact that illness itself has long been 'privatised' – seen as bearing no relation at all to the social and economic ills affecting the patient and to the sicknesses of society itself. To argue that 'the illness is the cure' is also to recognise that illness is also an expression of a fundamentally sick world. Through Life Medicine and Life Doctoring, illness can also help us to recognise and respond in new ways to this world and its politics - and in this way help to heal it. “The first task of the doctor is ... political…” Michel Foucault, The Birth of the Clinic: An Archaeology of Medical Perception
