Infertility affects more than 3 million married couples in the United States. This study explored the use of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) for treating female infertility. Surveys queried allopathic practitioners and TCM practitioners regarding their perceived knowledge and use of TCM. The vast majority of allopathic practitioners referred patients to acupuncturists and believed that acupuncture helped patients. The majority of respondents identified a trend for treating female infertility with TCM and Western medical procedures. The majority of respondents supported the concurrent use of allopathic protocols and TCM but did not support the concurrent use of TCM and Chinese Herbal Medicine (CHM). More than 62% of respondents expressed familiarity with clinical studies that used TCM fo...

Inevitable Incompetence

Soaring Medical Costs, Dangerous Medical Care

by Dr. Saul William Seidman

03/11/2007

We have two choices. We can follow the delusion of "universal health care" or we can accept a market approach to health care. Putting patients in charge of their medical care is a market approach. It guarantees competence, at least. Universal health care is sickness care administered by politicians, bureaucrats, CEOs and other proven incompetents. None of these "medicrats" knows how medicine is practiced. All these administrators are driven by politics and economics. Excellence is destroyed in the initial stages of what is called "single payer" health care. The destruction of competence follows the destruction of excellence. Medicine was practiced. Medicine was a lifelong learning experience. Medicine was integrated. That was only yesterday. The present bureaucratized, fragmented and disi...

The IVF Guide

What You Need to Know About Fertility, Infertility and Available Treatment Options

by Ahmet Ozyigit, PhD; Savas Ozyigit, MD

09/06/2018

IVF Treatment is a very personal journey- one with ups and downs. While there might be loads of information on infertility out there, it is very difficult to find the right information that fits your unique needs. Search for the right treatment option begins with the understanding that every patient is unique and standard treatments do not produce the same outcome for everyone. This concise and accessible overview of reproductive medicine in the 21st century seeks to demystify in vitro fertilization for prospective parents and students. The IVF Treatment Guide walks readers through the fundamentals of human reproductive anatomy and physiology as well as disease processes that cause infertility. This guidebook also highlights various fertility testing methods and treatment options that are ...

Psychology Gone Wrong

The Dark Sides of Science and Therapy

Poison Eaters

Snakes, Opium, Arsenic, and the Lethal Show

by Richard Swiderski

08/03/2010

Testing the boundaries between food, poison and medicine is a public show made into a continuing drama of risk and survival. This book is the first to explore the tradition of deliberate poison eating, its practitioners, and the substances that might nourish or kill them. Readers interested in the human history of drugs and medicine, in feats of endurance usually survived and in the play of controlling and regulatory authorities that always accompanies drug and poison use will find Poison Eaters especially appealing.

07/05/2008

The complementary and alternative (CAM) health movement is a burgeoning phenomenon in contemporary American culture. Types of healing alternatives to conventional medicine became increasingly popular in the latter quarter of the 20th century and some physicians, hospitals, and government entities have began to acknowledge the fields with validity. While alternatives to conventional medicine have always existed, contemporary interest in CAM may trigger an interest in unconventional forms of energy healing such as Reiki. The purpose of this research study was to investigate if Reiki could reduce episodes of insomnia and improve sleep patterns. Due to the fact that there is a paucity of research on Reiki’s effectiveness as an insomnia treatment method, a research study consisting of 15 ...

Chronic Complex Diseases of Childhood

A Practical Guide for Clinicians

by Shahram Yazdani, Sean A. McGhee, E. Richard Stiehm

02/04/2011

This new book is a practical guide for physicians and other professionals who care for children and adolescents with complex, chronic diseases. These disorders are a challenge because they require multiple services, the information about the disorders are scattered, and the exact treatments are not available in standard texts. To overcome these barriers, this book provides a summary of the clinical features, laboratory diagnosis, and the general and specific treatments needed for optimal care of these children. The key points are presented in a clear, succinct format, providing recommendations that can be implemented within the time span of an office or emergency room visit. Furthermore, pitfalls that are encountered are emphasized and alternatives are suggested. For example, this resour...

Advancing Conjugate Gaze

Advanced Concepts in Reflex Mind-Body Therapy

by Vincent L. Perri

10/31/2013

Advancing Conjugate Gaze advances Dr. Perri's Conjugate Gaze approach of manipulative reflex therapy to an integrated mind-body approach to reflex-based physical and somato-emotional therapeutics. Covering such diverse topics as the "tadpole child" of the autistic spectrum disorders to the underlying relationship of the cranial fascial planes to the chakras of the human body, Dr. Perri charts a specific and highly referenced approach to integrating dysfunctional mind-body interactions. Advancing Conjugate Gaze will take interested practitioners of any physical medicine discipline as well as psychology to a full understanding of the conjugate gaze mechanism. Its application in conjunction with peripheral reflex contacts, verbal cues, spatial field of interaction, visceral fascial releases,...

The Microcosm Within

Evolution and Extinction in the Hologenome

by William B. Miller, Jr.

01/08/2014

You are not what you think you are. New research is transforming how we understand ourselves—from a singular 'self' to a vast cooperative, co-dependent and collaborative network of cellular environments and ecologies—a microcosm within. From this unique perspective, a startling revision of evolutionary theory unfurls. Sharply reasoned and certain to be controversial, The Microcosm Within takes its readers on a sweeping scientific journey that reorganizes our thinking about our biological selves, evolution, and extinction. Darwin has dominated evolution for over a century. But many issues remain puzzling—What is the origin of self-sacrifice? Does natural selection really account for evolution? Why is homosexuality commonplace in the animal kingdom? Why were the arms of Tyrannosau...

The Racialization of Southern California's Indian Physicians

by Lata Murti

01/09/2015

This study examines the role of occupational status in the racialization of Indian physicians in Southern California. Since the liberalization of U.S. immigration policy in 1965, the number of first and second-generation Indian doctors in the U.S. has grown to nearly seven percent of the nation's physician workforce; however, Indians constitute less than one percent of the total U.S. population. Overrepresented in one of America's most prestigious professions, Indians are more visible in U.S. medicine than in the U.S. at large. Previous scholarship in immigration research, Asian American Studies, and the sociology of occupations has paid little attention to these professional non-white immigrants and their racial experience in the U.S. Asian American Studies in particular has focused p...

Sleep 101

The Beginner's Guide to Unraveling the Mysteries of Life's Forgotten Third

by Daniel Erichsen

02/20/2012

What is the function of sleep? Why does the northern fur seal sleep with only half of the brain? Is it safer to be asleep or awake? For the first time, the inside story of one of life's most mysterious and unexplored phenomenons. Written by a fellowship trained sleep medicine physician, Sleep 101 is at once a guide to hitherto uncharted biological territory, and a much needed tool for those seeking to improve their sleep.

by Debra J. Snyder

03/14/2007

Spiritual healing modalities are powerful tools, which enhance holistic and allopathic methods in caring for special needs children. This research paper explores four methods of spiritual healing, which benefit disabled children on all levels of existence. The spiritual healing techniques of Touch Therapy, Sound Therapy, Channeling and Love Therapy address the unique mind-body-spirit requirements of the pediatric special needs community. Spiritual healing empowers parents and caretakers to take the responsibility of healing into their own homes and to enhance communication with their child via the Divine Spirit in ways not normally explored in traditional approaches. The scientific study of energy medicine further adds credibility to alternative models of healing and opens the minds of...

A Theology of Science

From Science to Ethics to an Ethical Politics

by Robert C. Trundle

08/15/2007

This book reveals a remarkable oddity about the mainstream philosophy of science. While rejecting a noxious relativism, it is unable to ascribe "truth" to scientific theories that also are divorced conceptually from ethics and politics. There is much at stake since these dilemmas have led to a politicized truth whereby "truth" in these areas is often decided ideologically. But the ideology and splintered areas collide head-on with our awareness of ourselves and the world. By relating a world of which we are phenomenologically conscious to a common-sense reasoning, a novel case is made for objective scientific truth, a true causal principle, and the principle's implication of a First Cause. This Cause, as a Creator of Nature, begets moral norms intrinsic to scientific descriptions of our ps...

Primordialization

The Way New Living Organisms Emerge

by Mirabotalib Kazemie

07/24/2001

We know that each biological organism has the potential for variation. This can be seen in domestic animals and wildlife. However, neither fossils nor other data available from molecular and developmental biology demonstrate sufficiently that this potential is the reason for emergence of new biological organisms. This book presents a new theory which shows that biological organisms, despite variations, have a distinct basic form which is established through a process called "primordialization". Primordialization theory differs from traditional theories of biological diversity by suggesting that the ability of living organisms to evolve occurs only within the boundaries of their basic forms designs. Proteins that do not tolerate changes in their sequences determine these forms. Shifts i...

05/15/2005

Concerns over potential impediments to biochemical patenting derive from the significance of biotechnology to the future of medicine. From a medical perspective, developments in genetics could hardly be more consequential. (10) The legal revolution referenced above began with a scientific breakthrough--the development in 1972 of recombinant DNA technology. This invention spawned further advancements in genetic research, including the discovery in 1983 of a generally applicable method for cloning genes for polypeptides where the amino acid, DNA, and mRNA sequences were not completely known; the availability beginning in 1986 of computer controlled sequencing machines for the DNA base pairs that form genes; and the development of polymerase chain reaction technology the same year. These a...

Finding Joy in Joyce

A Readers Guide to Ulysses

by John P. Anderson

02/01/2000

This is a detailed reader's guide to James Joyce's masterwork Ulysses, voted the most important novel of the 20th century. The guide provides episode by episode an in depth explanation of the action and symbolism, including a description of the related books of Homer's Odyssey and the correspondences. This guide is designed to give the user the keys to the kingdom of one of the wonders of Western civilization. The non-academic author, a retired lawyer and life long Joyce reader, brings new approaches to find the deep meaning of each of Joyce's episodes and the novel as a whole. The scope of this effort, the complete Joyce, is unique in an area monopolized by more narrowly focused academics. The analysis elucidates Joyce's technique to mimic patterns in history and nature in his arch...

Psychology Led Astray

Cargo Cult in Science and Therapy

by Tomasz Witkowski

08/01/2016

This book shows how scientific and psychotherapeutic practices change into worthless rituals called by the famous physicist, Richard Feynman, "cargo cult." It is a must-read for everybody who is interested in psychology, who is studying or intends to study it, but also for present and potential clients of psychotherapists and parents of mentally-disabled children. Readers will learn which parts of psychology and therapy are cargo-cult-like and which are reliable. This book is the second part of trilogy devoted to the dark side of psychology. The first volume was published under the title Psychology Gone Wrong: The Dark Sides of Science and Therapy, also released by BrownWalker Press.

Bridge Across the Abyss:

Medical Myths and Misconceptions

by Firas Madbak, M.D.

03/28/2008

A fearless investigation of mainstream medicine's most revered dogma, Bridge Across the Abyss is solidly based on trusted medical literature. Find out why advice from authorities on screening tests, blood transfusions, pain and anti-reflux medicines, vitamin supplementation, cholesterol and diet is often wrong. See how clinical trials are slanted. This is a single compendium consisting of a discussion that describes commonly employed clinical practices that are instituted and taught despite the surprising lack of data supporting their use. In essence, these have created a medical dogma that is seldom questioned and accepted as valid regardless of what the evidence has borne out.

by Niall Shanks and C. Ray Greek

10/06/2009

The central concern of this book is with the "prediction problem" in biomedical research. In particular, the authors examine the use of animal models to predict human responses in drug and disease research. The arguments discussed are drawn from both biological and biomedical theory (with numerous examples and case studies drawn from evolutionary biology, complex systems theory, oncology, teratology, and AIDS research), and analyses of empirical evidence (concerning, for example, data on intra- and inter-species differences revealed by recent results from genome analyses of various species, human population studies, and statistical studies of the predictive utility of animal models). This book comes to the unique conclusion that while animals can be successfully used for many endeavors in ...

Intravenous fluid and blood component resuscitation is an integral part of modern medicine practice in a variety of medical fields. However, these therapies are usually led by rigid and very approximate guidelines. The purpose of creating the Homeostatic blood states theory was to develop more accurate guidelines. On the basis of the new theory the following results have been reached: 1. The physiological-mathematical model explaining blood volume homeostasis has been created; 2. Nomograms for infusion therapy measures, blood loss evaluation and calculating red blood cell transfusion amount were proposed; 3. Nomograms were built on the background of interfering relationship of blood hematocrit and hemoglobin concentration; 4. New guidelines for infusion therapy, blood loss evaluation ...

African American Decision Makers in Healthcare

Exploring the Impact of Mentoring on Professional Advancement

by Deon L. Wolliston

06/17/2008

This qualitative case study explored the impact of mentoring on professional advancement among African Americans healthcare professionals. A nonrandom purposeful sample was used to identify 21 African American hospital decision makers employed in the specialty areas of nursing, medicine, pharmacy, and administration. Two central research questions were used to explore the role of mentoring on professional advancement and the participants’ perception of the importance of mentorship and empowerment on their professional advancement.

Falun Gong in the United States

An Ethnographic Study

by Noah Porter

06/27/2003

Falun Gong, also known as Falun Dafa, has been described in many ways. It has been called qigong, one of many schools of physical exercises that aim at improving health and developing supernatural abilities. Scholars and mainstream media have referred it to as a spiritual movement or religion, although practitioners claim it is not a religion. It has been called a cult, in the pejorative sense rather than in a sociological context, by the Chinese government and by some Western critics. In the writings of Li Hongzhi, the founder of Falun Gong, it is referred to in different ways, though primarily as a cultivation practice. The question of how to define Falun Gong is not just an academic issue; the use of the cult label has been used to justify the persec...

Child Abusers

Research and Treatment

by Christopher R. Bagley

09/28/2003

This book is about men and women who neglect and abuse children, physically, emotionally and sexually. A number of key themes emerge: Emotional abuse causes the most long-term harm to children, although combinations of emotional with physical and/or sexual abuse cause the most harm to long-term mental health. Because of the long-term burden which abuse imposes on its victims, it is crucial to intervene effectively with abusers (potential and actual) to prevent them from either beginning abuse, committing further abuse, or entering the victim-to-abuser cycle. Abusers have often experienced physical, emotional or sexual abuse or neglect in their own childhoods. The role of disordered attachments to adult figures in the victim-to-abuser cycle is considered in detail, including ways ...
