Essential Materia Medica: Esmame

By: Cynthia Young

FOREWORD The first edition of the Esmame (Essential Materia Medica) aimed only at a basic knowledge of homeopathy for summary therapy. In revising the book for the present, second, edition, considerable care has been taken to make it much more comprehensive, with a view to a broader and deeper understanding of the materia medica. Nineteen more healants have been added now to the ninety of the first edition. But as Bacillinum has been integrated with Tuberculinum, the total number comes to one hundred and eight now. The symptomology of each healant has been presented under distinctive heads, as before. Names of healants, not discussed but only referred to incidentally, have not been abbreviated. For ‘mucus’ the same spelling has been used, whether noun or adjective. Two other terms used need to be explained: 1) ‘healant’ to distinguish homeopathic medicines from others, since homeopathy operates on a different plane altogether and 2) ‘heaty’ to signify the polar opposite of ‘chilly’, on the analogy of ‘meat’ ‘meaty’, ‘grit’ ‘gritty’, ‘fault’ ‘faulty’. While ‘chilly’ conveys the thermal subjectivity quite well, ‘warm’ ...

The numbers in the text of the materia medica signify respectively: 1. Signature 2. Essential 3. Comparative 4. Special 5. Contra-indications 6. Causations 7. Stages and States 8. Lateralities 9. Modalities 10. Relations 11. Guidelines 12. Case studies...

Hepatitus C Virus: Molecular Pathways and Treatments

By: Oumamima Stambouli

Hepatitis C Virus (HCV) was found as the causative agent of the Non-A, Non-B Hepatitis (NANBH) in 1989. HCV is an enveloped RNA virus that could be classified into six genotypes. The major host cell supporting HCV replication is the human hepatocyte. HCV is primarily transmitted by exposure to contaminated blood. HCV exists in host blood as quasispecies, a population of dynamic strains closely related to each other. Hepatitis C patients may have decreased appetite, abdominal pain, jaundice, fatigue and flu-like symptoms, or could be asymptomatic. Acute infection refers to the first six months of HCV infection, while more than 75% of patients develop chronic Hepatitis in the natural course of HCV infection. The interactions between host immune responses and virus immune evasion determine the outcome of HCV infection. The base of the current standard therapy of HCV is pegylated interferon and ribavirin, the usage of which is restricted due to its side effects. No HCV vaccine is currently available in clinics. However, recent research has shown that a single strain of HCV could elicit broad cross-neutralizing antibodies against all kno...

Polysystemic Approach to School, Sport and Environment

By: Mikhail Karganov

One of the basic research objectives of the present monograph is to update multidisciplinary specialists on contemporary instrumental and analytical means and methods of automatic polysystemic sanogenetic monitoring. The unique advantage of this monitoring lies in not only information capacity of dynamic criteria registered, but also its ability to automate measurement and indication procedures and to ensure simultaneous operation and development of technical facilities. Substantuation of the sanogenetic theory, creation of automatic examination facilities for individual sanogenesis and large-scale approbation of these methods in school, sport and environment medicine required cooperation of specialists from many scientifi c fi elds....

Operation Theater Techniques : Obstetrics & Gynecology

By: Dr. Shashank Vyankatesh Parulekar

The book is meant for resident doctors who are starting their training. Obstetrics & Gynecology is a subject that involves a lot of operative procedures. Just knowledge of which instruments to use and which steps to perform is not enough to perform an operation successfully. A lot depends on manual dexterity. A basic knowledge of the technique of holding different instruments correctly and passing sutures, ligatures, and tying knots is essential for performance of all types of operations. This aspect has not been dealt with by any book so far. I have written this book to bridge that gap in the educational resources available to students....

Internal Armed Conflict ; International Legal Framework Concerning Women and Children

By: Shabina Arfat

This book, ‘INTERNAL ARMED CONFLICT: International Legal Framework Concerning Women and Children’, seeks to assess the application of customs and laws governing the internal armed conflict. This handbook presents an overview of various international instruments for the protection of women and children. By preventing the transcending of conflicts into brutality and savagery, the law of armed conflict aids the restoration of peace and the resumption of friendly relations. Women and children are opined to be accorded special respect and protection. Most of today’s conflicts take place within states. They have tragic feature in common, women and children suffer their impact disproportionately. The concept of children’s rights has widened and the international mandate to reinforce the rights of the child has grown over the years, with the mounting evidence of hardship and abuse suffered by the children. The principles outlined in the international human rights framework apply both to children and adults. Children and women are mentioned explicitly in many of the human rights instruments; standards are specifically modified o...

Advances in Protein Chemistry

By: Dr. Chulam Ashraf

The free radical-mediated damage to proteins results in the modification of amino acid residues, cross-linking of side chains and fragmentation. L-tyrosine and protein bound tyrosine are prone to attack by various mediators and reactive nitrogen intermediates to form 3-nitrotyrosine (3-NT). 3-NT formation is also catalyzed by a class of peroxidases utilizing nitrite and hydrogen peroxide as substrates. Evidence supports the formation of 3-NT in vivo in diverse pathologic conditions and 3-NT is thought to be a relatively specific marker of oxidative damage. The formation of nitrotyrosine represents a specific peroxynitrite-mediated protein modification; thus, detection of nitrotyrosine in proteins is considered as a biomarker for endogenous peroxynitrite activity. Formation of tyrosine nitrated proteins is considered to be a post-translational modification with important pathophysiological consequences and is one of the markers of nitrosative stress that have been reported in neurodegeneration, inflammatory and other pathological conditions....

Tuberculosis in the Era of Globalization

By: Khalid Al-Anzai

Tuberculosis (TB) is caused by members of the Mycobacterium tuberculosis (M. tuberculosis) complex, which include: M. tuberculosis, M. bovis, M. bovis BCG, M. africanum, M. microti, M. canetti, M. pinipedii, M. caprae and M. mungi [1]. Other Tuberculosise that may infect humans include: M. leprae, M. avium, M. intracellulare and M. scrofulaceum. M. tuberculosis is an aerobic, non-spore-forming, non-motile bacillus. It belongs to the family Tuberculosisceae [2]. M. tuberculosis is pathogenic for humans while M. bovis is usually pathogenic for animals. Once infected, active disease develops in about 10% of cases, usually within 1 - 2 years after exposure. The remaining individuals enter into a state of latency which can reactivate at a later stage particularly if the individual becomes immunocompromised [3]. Active TB is predominantly pulmonary in nature and develops in 59% of cases, while extrapulmonary TB occurs in the rest. Latent TB infection has no clinical manifestations and is not contagious, but can reactivate at a later stage, particularly if the immunity of the host decreases significantly [3,4]. Immunocompromised patients ...

Coping with Diabetes : A Day to Day Struggle

By: Frederick Fontanilla Jacob

Unknown to most people, Diabetes is not just a single disease but rather a group of complex diseases which have stemmed from various causes resulting in people having an above average blood glucose count or more commonly know as hyperglycemia. Diabetes affects all gender and age groups and is very common among people with a prolonged medical history of high blood pressure, heart ailments and kidney problems among others. Besides adults, children are also affected with this disease which clearly states that Diabetes itself may not only be a matter of eating the wrong diet, but may even be caused by hereditary genes that may be a sign of receive genetically traits passed on from one generation to the next and being triggered by the simple reason as indulging in a bad dietary habit or even an onset of some diseases....

Sometimes, over complacency may get the best of most of us, particularly those who resolve themselves for not feeling anything that may give them the urge to visit a doctor unless they feel that there is something wrong with them, which in most cases may be a little bit too late for preventive medications. Over time, high blood glucose level damages nerves and blood vessels, leading to complications such as heart disease, stroke, kidney disease, blindness, dental disease, and amputations. Other complications of diabetes may include increased susceptibility to other diseases, loss of mobility with aging, depression, and pregnancy problems. No one is certain what starts the processes that cause diabetes, but scientists believe genes and environmental factors interact to cause diabetes in most cases. There are two types of Diabetes that are prevalent among people today, which is type 1 and type 2 Diabetes along with a third type which is called gestational diabetes that occurs during pregnancy. Other uncategorized Diabetes are usually caused through genetic inheritance, diseases that cause the pancreas to produce an insufficient supply...

Martial Arts for Health : Translating Reserach into Practice

By: Shirley S.M. Fong

Martial arts were developed for use on the battlefield in ancient times, and even in the modern world many people learn such skills for self-defense [1]. Despite their combative nature, training in marital arts is safe compared with many other contact sports. The use of protective equipment such as mouth guards and headgear is mandatory during sparring, and practitioners must follow strict competition rules in many types of martial arts [2]. In addition, some types of martial arts such as Tai Chi and Qigong are noncombative in nature, with practitioners focusing on coordinated movements and relaxation during practice – all of which are beneficial to practitioners’ health [1,3]. These days, the popularity of martial arts is increasing, particularly among young people [4]. There are about 200 distinct martial arts types or disciplines around the world, each with its own training characteristics and philosophy [5]. Only the most common types of Oriental and Western martial arts and their associated health effects are introduced in this book. These martial disciplines include the internal (e.g. Tai Chi and Qigong) and external ...

Laboratory Manual and Review on Clinical Pathology

By: Dr. Jealu Kemal

Clinical pathology is a subspecialty of pathology that deals with the use of laboratory methods (clinical chemistry, microbiology, hematology and emerging subspecialties such as molecular diagnostics) for the diagnosis and treatment of disease. Hematology studies the blood and blood-forming tissues to evaluate presence of disease and assist in therapeutic interventions as clinically indicated. Clinical chemistry (also known as chemical pathology and clinical biochemistry) is the area of clinical pathology that is generally concerned with analysis of bodily fluids. Some of the objectives of this manual are to identify the most important hematological and functional pathological tests of vet importance, to diagnose different animal diseases by confirming the pathological causes that constraint live stock production and to have knowledge more about clinical pathology. Part one discusses about hematology which includes equipments and reagents, blood collection sites and procedures, preparation method for working solution, staining methods (staining procedures), hemoglobin determination, hematocrit determination (PCV), total RBC ...

Advances in Neurotherapeutic Delivery Technologies

By: Vinees Pillay and Yahya E Choonara

This eBook describes the forward-thinking approach, applying nanotechnology to achieve neuropharmaceutical innovations and aptly discusses the latest research and development trends in innovating Neurotherapeutic Delivery Technologies by leading research groups. The eBook lays down the foundation for breaking barriers in neuro-nanopharmaceutics and the unnerving thought of “Matter over Mind”. The era has arrived where we could well see pharmaceutical products that are truly ‘alive’, superseded with super-robotic feedback devices combined with nanocyborgs that can deliver to the body not only drugs but also a host of materials such as cells, genes, DNA, nerve signals, diagnostic probes, hormones, proteins and peptides in a much more easier manner as we have today with simply swallowing a pill. These revolutionary technologies are described within the later Chapters of this eBook based on a world where neuro-devices implanted into our brains would be fashionable to control our overall moods and performance....

Notes on Nursing: What it is, and What it is Not

By: Ms. Pere Millán, Editor; Florence Nightingale

In her introduction to the 1974 edition, Joan Quixley, then head of the Nightingale School of Nursing, wrote that despite the passage of time since Notes on Nursing was published, "the book astonishes one with its relevance to modern attitudes and skills in nursing, whether this be practised at home by the 'ordinary woman', in hospital or in the community. The social, economic and professional differences of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries in no way hinder the young student or pupil from developing, if he or she is motivated to do so, its unchanged fundamentals by way of intelligent thought and practice". "With its mid-nineteenth century background of poverty, neglect, ignorance and prejudice the book was a challenge to contemporary views of nursing, of nurses and of the patient". "The book was the first of its kind ever to be written. It appeared at a time when the simple rules of health were only beginning to be known, when its topics were of vital importance not only for the well-being and recovery of patients, when hospitals were riddled with infection, when nurses were still mainly regarded as ignorant, uneducated person...

Handbook pf Hydraulic Engineering Problems

By: Mohammad Valipour

In near future, energy become a luxury item and water is considered as the most vital item in the world due to reduction of water resources in most regions. In this condition, role of water science researchers and hydraulic experts is more important than ever. If a hydraulic engineer student is not educated well, he/she will not solve problems of hydraulic sciences in future. Many engineer students learn all necessary lessons in the university, but they cannot to answer to the problems or to pass the exams because of forgetfulness or lack of enough exercise. This book contains one hundred essential problems related to hydraulic engineering with a small volume. Undoubtedly, many problems can be added to the book but the author tried to mention only more important problems and to prevent increasing volume of the book due to help to feature of portability of the book. To promotion of student skill, both SI and English systems have been used in the problems. All of the problems were solved completely. This book is useful for not only exercising and passing the university exams but also for use in actual project as a handbook...

The Cytoarchitectonics of the Adult Human Cortex

By: Dr. H. Lee Seldon, Translator

Why is this work so important? Most "modern" Anglo-Saxon authors cite Brodmann's 1909 work "Die Lokalisationslehre" for any reference to localization in the neocortex. However, during my own studies I found that sadly lacking in detail. For example, it contains only about 12 pages dedicated to the human neocortex. Von Economo and Koskinas apparently also felt this lack, as they wrote "Unfortunately, BRODMANN has given no description of the architectonics of this area, but has only listed the borders of his Areae, without one word about the cellular structure, and thus without having justified his tiling." (p. 693). Their own work is even today by far the most detailed cytoarchitectonic description of human neocortical areas, their features and their borders. The authors also include extensive discussions of all prior research on each area, revealing that the "old masters" knew very much which in the intervening decades has been forgotten and sometimes "re-discovered."...

"If we submit this book to the public after a laborious, long work of one dozen years - the work was begun by Professor V. ECONOMO in the year 1912; 1919 Dr. KOSKINAS entered into the cooperation - this does not happen with the joyful satisfaction of having created something consummate. Only an artist can possess this feeling of having created something entirely of himself. Each scientific work however - however much new it brings - rests on the groundwork of whole generations and can be tested only through the work of later generations. In a certain sense those few researchers are enviable who with increased self-esteem overlook this fact, and feel the beginning and end of all of their knowledge is a product of their own examinations. However, every scientific work is always only a part of a total, only a stone; however, sometimes a cornerstone of that wall, which constantly builds the intellectual culture in the course of civilizations to protect itself from the enmity of superstition, ignorance and primitive instincts."...

The Boy Next Door: Harmony

By: C.E. Todd

Christine Metcalf's quiet life as a doctor's wife is not so quiet lately. Since her husband threw himself into his career, after learning he couldn't father children, Christine has been left alone. Christine buys a motorcycle, and begins to look at her neighbor Tom in a new way. Just as Christine begins to connect with Tom, a sudden revelation raises important questions. Will Christine be able to see Tom? Will their relationship survive? Don't forget "The Boy Next Door: Intrigue" (Book 2), and "The Boy Next Door: Resolution" (Book 3). If you'd like all three books at once, see "The Boy Next Door."...

It was hot that late-August evening, the kind of hot that makes you wonder if you really could fry an egg on the sidewalk. I decided to check on my motorcycle, the one thing I can count on lately, and maybe go for a ride. I walked into the garage and, sure enough, there it was, just beckoning to me. Sleek, black, and decidedly not girly. Some, like Sandy, my checkout lady at Kroger’s, “just ain’t sure,” but frankly I wasn’t sure what they weren’t sure of. As I wheeled the three-wheeled motorcycle out of the garage, I smelled new mown grass. That’s one of the things about the dog days that I actually enjoy – that smell. As I look up, I spot Tom, the next door neighbor’s son and one other thing that I enjoyed about the dog days, or any other day, for that matter.
