Cancer patients have vitamin deficiencies (in particular, folic acid, vitamin C, and pyridoxine) as well as other nutritional deficiencies.200 There have been a number of studies of patients with proven cancer who are being treated with vitamin therapy alone. Many of these vitamin-therapy studies have recently been reviewed by Bertino, who concludes that such treatment is without proven benefit to the cancer patient—and I agree with him. The cancer patient should be thoroughly worked up by an oncology specialist. I am advocating simple common sense: an apparently healthy person should take steps to avoid or eliminate risk factors that could potentially cause cancer and atherosclerosis. This includes eating the right foods and taking the right amount of those vitamins and minerals shown to have anticancer and antioxidant effects, and shown to be needed for the immune system to function well. By eliminating all known risk factors of cancer and atherosclerosis and practicing good nutrition supplemented with vitamins and minerals, your overall risk of developing cancer or atherosclerosis will be kept to a minimum.Richard S. Schweiker, then Secretary of Health and Human Services, said in a policy statement given at a symposium on cancer research at Rockefeller University that he and the Reagan Administration endorse the research focus on cancer prophylaxis and the protective potential of vitamins and trace minerals in both normal and high-risk populations. As reported by the Medical Tribune on June 30, 1982, he said that enough new data have emerged in recent basic, clinical, and epidemiological studies to justify support for the hypothesis that micronutrients may prevent the initiation or development of cancer. The National Cancer Institute in Bethesda, Maryland, has allocated several million dollars for this purpose.Schweiker stated, “This new strategy holds promise for reducing the incidence of cancer more successfully than an attempt to remove from the environment all substances which may initiate the cancer process—an approach which is not always possible or practical.” In addition, he said that laboratory studies of vitamin A precursors, vitamins С and E, selenium, and certain chemicals demonstrate that these “act as preventive agents.”I recommend taking the combination of vitamins and minerals in Table 6.8 as a food supplement. These nutrients could be taken daily unless otherwise specified by your physician. Pregnant or lactating women should not follow this program unless it has been approved by their physician. The formula for younger children is also shown.*37\360\2*

Everything that happens to you from Satan is screened by God first. This dialogue between Satan and God assures us that God is in control. When you are threshed like wheat (tested), it is only by God’s permission. Look at this passage from Job 1:7-12.The Lord said to Satan, “Where have you come from?” Satan answered the Lord, “From roaming through the earth and going back and forth in it.”Then the Lord said to Satan, “Have you considered my servant Job? There is no one on earth like him; he is blameless and upright, a man who fears God and shuns evil.”"Does Job fear God for nothing?” Satan replied. “Have you not put a hedge around him and his household and everything he has? You have blessed the work of his hands, so that his flocks and herds are spread throughout the land. But stretch out your hand and strike everything he has, and he will surely curse you to your face.”The Lord said to Satan, “Very well, then, everything he has is in your hands, but on the man himself do not lay a finger.” Then Satan went out from the presence of the Lord.At the end of this testing, Job learned that the all-powerful God of the Universe holds the answer to suffering. Job argued to God that he was sinless and not deserving of suffering. God finally spoke and put Job in his place by asking him a few questions that he could not answer, such as “Where were you when I laid the earth’s foundation?” (Job 38:4). Job understood then that we may not have all the answers to why we suffer. “Surely  spoke of things I did not understand, things too wonderful for me to know” (Job 42:3). There is one major lesson to know or will not be able to face the death to self: it   is the necessity of experiencing God’s cooking pot. If you are cooking out in this desert,    it is under the auspices of the Heavenly Father. He knows how to get each pot to the correct temperature so as to melt off impurities from our hearts. If you believe you are a victim, that God is picking on you, or that you should not suffer because it is time for someone else to suffer, then you might jump out of the cooking pot, out of the hot desert, or off the altar. Ezekiel 24:3b-5 says:” ‘Put on the cooking pot; put it on and pour water into it. Put into it the pieces of meat, all the choice pieces —the leg and the shoulder. Fill it with the best of these bones; take the pick of the flock. Pile wood beneath it for the bones; bring it to a boil and cook the bones in it.’ “ The only way I have ever been able to tough it out is to know that this pressure to submit my will is from the Father. James 1:2-4 points out, “Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.” Most of us have been through some significant suffering. Some have suffered child abuse, sexual abuse, or molestation. Others have experienced verbal abuse, injustice, and financial devastation. We have all endured many things, no matter what it looks like on the outside.It sounds all well and good that we will gain so much patience and character, but when I am in the middle of having to give up my food or my way, gaining more character is no motivation for me. As I said before, the only thing that can possibly make me stay in this heat is to know that it is God’s oven. Because He coordinated, so worthy of reverse, I would not consider running from the desert if that is where He wants me. I would consider changing only my will and desires.For example, even if a marriage is tough—God hates for you to jump out of the cooking pot before the cooking is done. God and Jesus always encouraged us first to stay in the oven!Change yourself before you change the surroundings. Make sure God is leading you to change jobs, or God just might re-create the same situation in the next job. Do not even think about getting even with someone who has wronged you—in fact, turn the other cheek.How do I know if I am right about this? Just try it for yourself. Try to get out of any suffering, including the painful suffering of dying to yourself with food. You will find that you remain miserable. And if you jump out of one cooking pot or off the altar, you will find that God will put you in another. You seemingly will put on five pounds overnight, and you will feel downcast again. Now reverse that choice of behavior and just bear through the wait for hunger. You will come through the pain and feel fantastic on the other side. You will get on the scales and reap reward! It boils down to the illustration above.*62\237\2*

There are many types of drugs that can prevent migraine in sufferers who have frequent attacks. There would be little point in taking tablets every day if the attacks occur only once a year. Even monthly attacks, particularly when mild or responsive to simple remedies, should not require regular medication. It is when attacks occur several times a month and are interfering with life’s ordinary activities that daily tablets may restore a patient to a normal life.1. There can be little doubt that there is a familial tendency although its strength and the way in which migraine is inherited are still debatable. No drugs can alter this susceptibility.2. There are predisposing or provocative factors which trigger an attack in a sensitive individual. These include factors such as stress, tension, or depression and drugs are very effective in relieving these factors.3.   Drugs can interfere with the biochemical changes that occur before or during a migraine attack

If, as we insist, the skin is not a mere covering of the body, but is, in fact, one of the most important of the organs of the whole system, then we must realize its important relationship with the mind. As we know, all the important organs in the body are quickly responsive to the condition of the mind, and mental and emotional disturbances soon make themselves felt on bodily functions. For example, everybody knows how the stomach reacts to such upsets; the digestion is thrown out of gear, and it may take some time before order is restored. Worry, grief, anxiety, and emotional strain will produce great nerve tension and use up the nerve energy more quickly than any amount of overwork. In short, the quickest way to disturb the rhythm of the function of the alimentary tract is through the mind.Many people have been aware of this fact for a long time. They have seen various troubles develop which made it difficult to decide the starting point. Troubles like colitis, for example, are said to be of nervous origin because they seem to accompany a temperament that is overweighed in this way. The same is true of complaints like nervous dyspepsia, and there is a form of asthma that seems to be of nervous origin. We could go on listing other ailments which are of this nature, and in the last decade or so the term “psychosomatic” has crept into our language, showing that we tend more and more to think in terms of body and mind rather than to dissociate them in the way we did in the past. To a large extent the ordinary practice of medicine has been responsible for many of the misleading attitudes that “people have adopted towards illness. The idea prevailed for a long time that certain drugs had specific effects upon the various organs in the system, and therefore the text-books listed these agents as though the various diseases were confined to certain organs. For example, a medicine was said to be a diuretic, i.e. to have a special effect upon the kidneys and the bladder, and when people suffered from what was considered to be complaints affecting these organs the specific medicines were prescribed for the purpose of curing the disease. Following up this line of thought, intensive study was given to each particular organ, and the functions of the particular organs were described in detail with all the symptoms which manifested themselves. Later on, the idea of specialism developed, so that the medical profession itself was divided up into different categories, and there were specialists for each particular organ or set of organs: a heart specialist, a lung specialist, a skin specialist, and so on.This attitude has led people to think of disease not as a condition of the whole body but as separate conditions, all of them more or less unrelated to one another. So that now when we talk of a certain form of disease by the name which we have given to it we are inclined to regard it as an entity in itself. For instance, we talk about the common cold having attacked us, and we then go on to talk about finding a cure for it as though it bears no real relationship to our habits and our general way of life. We do exactly the same with all the diseases we have given a name; cancer attacks us as though it is something that exists apart from the body. We have been accustomed to think of skin complaints, perhaps more than other forms of disease, without trying to relate them to ourselves and our general way of life, and it has led to a great deal of treatment that has been very disappointing. When disease exists, it exists in all the parts of the body, because all the parts are related; and as the mind and the body are intimately related at all times we must never think of disease-causation without bearing this important point in view.

No conscious awareness of anything is possible until it has captured our attention. Our sense organs in the eyes, ears, nose and body are in continuous action, day and night, whether we are awake or asleep. The central nervous system receives steady reports of all the events these sense organs are capable of detecting. Obviously, it would be a disaster of excess if we were continuously aware of the entire mass of arriving information. We completely ignore most of the information most of the time. And yet any fraction of this inflow is capable of riveting attention. For this to happen, there has to be a selective attention mechanism which must have a set of rules. Those rules are not arbitrary. Every species displays its rules, which incorporate a selection of those events that are important to its survival and well-being. Some rules seem to be built in. Large, sudden, novel occurrences have precedence in their attention-grabbing ability. I propose, that the arrival in the nervous system of messages signalling tissue damage is another of these built-in high-priority events.In some species the built-in selection can be very precise. At London Zoo, Ronald Melzack arranged for a cut-out cardboard outline of a hawk, with its characteristic short head and long tail, to be dragged on wires above ducklings raised in isolation. They froze and peeped alarm calls. To reset the apparatus, he dragged the cardboard cut-out backwards across the ducklings. Now they saw a short tail and long neck and crackled with delight at the possible arrival of mother.Obviously there is a learned component of our selective attention mechanism. The bored radar operator sits staring at the screen, which is a snow storm of random blinking dots. Let one of these dots begin to move in a consistent line and attention locks onto that dot to the exclusion of all others. Let a migraine sufferer detect a small twinkling area in the visual field and his attention is riveted on this trivial event because he has learned that the aura of his oncoming migraine attack begins with just such a scintillating area.In social animals, subtle triggers of attention can be shared. In West Africa, two species of monkeys feed together in flocks but eat different fruits. Their main enemy is the monkey eagle. One of the species is quicker than the other to spot arriving eagles, so both species benefit from the alarm of one. In Australia, a grouse selects her ground nest close to a tree containing a hawk because the hawk’s superior height and eyesight detects distant predators long before the earthbound grouse can. And so it is with humans, where attention is infectious.The attention mechanism must be continuously scanning the available information in the incoming messages and assigning a priority of biological importance. We have already described as an example of ‘thoughtless’ decision, the switch of attention in the car driver who is in conversation with a passenger while engaged in ‘unconscious’ skilled driving, until some fool cuts in front of him, whereupon attention promptly switches from conversation to avoidance. This brings out the second rule of selective attention, which is that only one target at a time is permitted. Obviously, it is possible to switch attention back and forth quite rapidly. However, at any one instant, only one collection of information is available for conscious sensory analysis. This one object can itself be preset. An example is the detection of your name being mentioned in the random buzz of conversation at a cocktail party. Similarly it is possible to scan a long list of names and detect the one you seek with no recall of any of the other names.It is not intuitively obvious that attention can be directed to only one subject at any one time. It would seem a rather ridiculous limitation in a mental process that clearly has freedom to rove over vast areas: ‘Shoes and ships and sealing-wax, cabbages and kings’, as Lewis Carroll put it. An explanation for this strict limit on attention could be that sensory events are analyzed in terms of the action that might be appropriate to the event. If the aim of attention relates to appropriate action, then it follows that a fundamental requirement of nature is that only one action at a time is permitted. It is not possible to move forwards and backwards simultaneously. You must make up your mind. The explanation for the singularity of momentary attention would then derive from the purpose of attention, which is to assemble and highlight those aspects of the sensory input which would be relevant to carrying out one act.Of course, rival sensory events may compete for attention. The tale of the ass who starves to death when placed equidistant between two bales of hay is indeed a myth that would never happen. Even real asses have a built-in requirement to make a choice. There may be many events occurring simultaneously, each of which demands attention. They are ordered by rank into a hierarchy in terms of biological importance. The practical consequence of this ordering was described repeatedly in the earlier chapters on the apparent paradox of the painless injury. Each of these victims was involved in a situation where some action, other than attending to their wound, had top priority. Getting out of a burning aircraft is more urgent than attending to a broken leg, for example. The attention does not oscillate between the two demands. One is assigned complete domination until safety is achieved. Only then is the alternative assigned the top position, attention shifts and pain occurs.The workman in the course of a skilled task and the footballer about to score a goal carry on to complete the task with full attention despite the conflicting demands of their coincidental injury. Only when the conditions of the top priority fade is there a reassessment of the next most urgent priority. In conditions of complete ‘emergency analgesia’, pain emerges as the dominant fact when the emergency is over. This priority ranking of importance is partly built in, partly learned from personal experience and partly a component of culture.Therapy that is based on a moulding of attention is effective. It is called distraction. When a toddler trips, smacks into the pavement and howls, what does a parent do? Pick it up, dance about, utter the inane ‘coo’, ’00′ and ‘ah’, and kiss it better. These are distractions. Because you can attend to only one thing at a time, it also follows that you can have only one pain at a time. This fact led to many excellent folk remedies, such as hot poultices, horse linaments and mustard plasters. They are called counterstimulants. When pain really sets in, attention is utterly monopolized and nothing else exists in the world but the pain. Many therapies attempt to intrude on this fixation. The distraction that is effective may be simple but it will depend on established priorities. A game of cards, letting the cat out, or the sight of a hated neighbour can provide a brief interlude in pain. Some victims discover this for themselves and prolong their brief holidays from pain by inventing distractions; others get professional help in occupational therapy.In another distraction therapy, given the pretentious title of cognitive therapy, the victim learns to daydream and play out an internal fantasy. It may be that they are on a warm sunny beach, or at a football match or in their favourite bar. Some people can become very skilled at these distractions and give themselves longer and longer respites from their miserable pain*73\219\2*

Hyperventilation – or overbreathing – is breathing in a rapid, shallow way using the upper chest instead of the abdomen. Breathing in this manner produces more oxygen than the body needs, and the result is a fall in the level of carbon dioxide in the blood. The acid/alkaline balance of the body is also disturbed and this can cause a lot of strange and sometimes frightening feelings. It can result in panic attacks, unreal feelings, headaches, tingling around the mouth and in the feet and hands, a tight chest, pain in the neck and shoulders and digestive upsets.Here is how it is described in the Oxford Book of Psychiatry (1983); it shows how poor breathing habits can affect the whole body.Over-breathing is breathing in a rapid and shallow way which results in a fall in the concentration of carbon dioxide in the blood. The resultant symptoms include dizziness, faintness, numbness and tingling in the hands, feet and face, carpopedal spasms (severe cramp in hands and feet), and precordial discomfort (discomfort in the area of the chest over the heart). There is also a feeling of breathlessness which may prolong the condition. When a patient has unexplained bodily symptoms, the possibility of persistent overbreathing should always be borne in mind.It does not matter what causes hyperventilation; it may be a bloated abdomen cramping your lungs, or a blocked nose that starts the habit, or it may be that you have always been anxious and have been a poor breather since childhood, but no matter what the cause is, the worst symptom of hyperventilation is panic attacks.*97\326\8*

No one did more to advance the cause of scientific medicine than the English doctor William Harvey (1578-1657). He made history by showing that blood is constantly on the move through the body, so breaking with the accepted wisdom handed down by Galen, who believed that the heart acted as a low-temperature oven to keep the blood warm and that the movement of blood was not like water through a pipe, but was comparable to the ebb and flow of a tidal seepage.Harvey’s key contribution was his treatise on the movement of the heart and blood in animals, Exercitatio Anatomica de Motu Cordis et Sanguinis in Animalibus. In it he demonstrated with admirable scientific clarity that the heat beats by muscular contraction, squeezing the blood out of its interior into the arteries through the one-way valves, and returning it to the heart in the veins. He was able to show that what came back to the heart was indeed the same blood as that which had left it, not a newly manufactured quantity, as others had thought. In short, he concluded that blood was recycled.Although Harvey accurately described the phenomena of circulation and blood pressure, he did not have a microscope (the instrument had yet to be invented), and so could not identify the exact means by which blood pressure was maintained –the fine capillaries.The four to six litres of blood in our bodies accounts for one-fourteenth of our total body weight. Blood consists mostly of fluid. This fluid portion is plasma, a pale brown, sticky liquid containing, among other things, proteins, salts, cholesterol, glucose, lipids and hormones. All these need to be transported from one part of the body to another, by the blood.The plasma also carries the various blood cells. Red cells contain haemoglobin, which is a molecule capable of picking   up,   carrying   and   delivering oxygen. Haemoglobin is very similar in its molecular structure to chlorophyll in plants, which suggest an evolutionary link between the two. White cells, or leukocytes, are larger than red cells and are responsible for fighting infection. There are also special cells for causing the blood to clot: the platelets, or thrombocytes. In any cubic millimetre of blood there are approximately five million red cells, 10 000 white cells and around 250 000 platelets.*6/353/5*

Mr. G.Sahai was a very successful lawyer, with very good reputation and handsome income. Besides his five figure professional income, he had a rental income of Rs. 15000/- p.m.The family consisted of one son and his wife living with him, another son with his wife posted on a lucrative foreign posting, and two daughters married in very well-to-do families and living happily with their husbands.From external appearance Mr. Sahai should have led a very happy and contented life, but it was not so. It was a virtual hell in his family life. The daughters and their husbands had an eye on the big property owned by Mr. Sahai and they had roped in Mrs. Sahai to actively support their cause. Mr. Sahai with his son and his daughter-in-law on one side were thus ranged against Mrs. Sahai, her two daughters and their husbands on the other side. This tug of war had been going on for pretty long time, ending in a separate kitchen for the son’s family. The daughter-in-law was not on speaking terms with Mrs. Sahai.The tension raised the blood pressure of Mrs. Sahai to 200/100. with splitting headache. Aurum-Met- 1M in broken doses controlled the blood pressure. HOLLY Remedy T.D.S for one week gave her much relief in mental tension.Thereafter a combination of HOLLY (for hatred) and CHICORY (for her grabbing nature) was given T.D.S for another 6 weeks after which there was complete transformation in her nature, and she shed all her rancour and ill-will against her daughter-in-law, and a happy family life for Mr. Sahai resulted.*118\308\8*

The insulin used to treat diabetes comes from several sources. Beef and pork insulins are isolated from animal pancreases. Recombinant insulins are produced by genetic engineering and are chemically identical to the natural human hormone.Some of the insulins used in treating diabetes are modified to make them longer-acting than the natural hormone. The insulins available today come in several main types, which work for different periods of time. They may be used either separately or in various combinations.Regular or short-acting insulin is a pure form of insulin, sometimes called “plain,” “clear,” “unmodified,” or “R.” It is quick-acting but its effects do not last long. It starts working within half an hour, has the greatest effect in two to four hours, and is completely gone from the bloodstream within about six hours.Intermediate-acting insulins (Lente and NPH) enter the bloodstream about two to four hours after injection, have their peak effect in four to fourteen hours, and last from eighteen to twenty-four hours. (The name lente comes from the Italian word for “slow.”)Ultralente or long-acting insulin (called U) is a very slow-acting form; it takes from four to six hours to begin working, and peaks in fourteen to twenty-four hours. This type of insulin continues to work for thirty-six hours.Why are there different types? Fast-acting insulin is the best type for bringing a person out of a diabetic coma. But for daily use it is often rather inconvenient, at least by itself—since it lasts such a short time, a number of injections a day would be needed. Some of the longer-acting insulins do last throughout a whole day. But these insulins begin acting so slowly that they could not prevent serious sugar buildups if the user ate a meal at a time when the insulin’s action was not at its peak. Using mixtures of insulin can solve the problem—for example, an intermediate-acting insulin can take over when the short-acting form stops working.*34\268\2*

Primary peritonitis is almost always monomicrobial, so growth of more than one organism should raise the suspicion for secondary peritonitis. Gram-negative enteric organisms make up about 60% of SBP infections, with Escherichia coli and Klebsiella pneumoniae being most frequently isolated. Gram-positive organisms, most often Streptococcus pneumoniae and other streptococcal species, account for about 25% of episodes. Patients receiving selective intestinal decontamination (SID), usually with fluoroquinolone antibiotics, may have a higher frequency of gram-positive SBP episodes. Despite the predominantly anaerobic flora of the colon, anaerobic organisms are rarely isolated from peritoneal fluid and, when present, correlate strongly with polymicrobial infection. Bacteremia occurs in up to 75% of SBP cases when the infection is due to a single aerobic species, but it is rare in patients with peritonitis due to anaerobes.The most common infecting organisms in children with primary peritonitis are S. pneumoniae and group A streptococci. Uncommon organisms isolated in cases of primary peritonitis include N. gonorrhoeae, C. trachomatis, Mycobacterium tuberculosis, and Coccidioides immitis.*87/348/5*
