Peripheral Neuropathy: What It Is and What You Can Do to Feel Better

 Neurology/Neurosurgery  Comments Off on Peripheral Neuropathy: What It Is and What You Can Do to Feel Better
Jun 152020
 

Healing and symptom relief from an expert in treating this debilitating and dangerous condition.

Nearly one in fifteen people―that’s 20 million people in the United States―suffers from peripheral neuropathy, or nerve damage. Caused by such conditions as diabetes, cancer, vitamin deficiencies, and kidney disease as well as certain drugs and toxins, neuropathy brings numbness, tingling, and burning in the feet, legs, and fingertips. Neuropathy can be more than uncomfortable―it can be disabling: people whose fingertips are numb may find it hard to button clothing and complete other everyday tasks. Neuropathy is often dangerous, as well: people who cannot feel their feet are more likely to stumble and fall, and they may not notice injuries that need medical attention.

Dr. Janice F. Wiesman, a neurologist with twenty years of experience helping people who have neuropathy find relief, shares her special insights into this painful and debilitating condition. With exceptional clarity, Dr. Wiesman begins by outlining the basics of nerve anatomy and function. She explains how peripheral neuropathy is diagnosed and treated, describes neuropathy’s disparate causes, and offers readers lifestyle changes that can help keep nerves healthy. A useful glossary defines terms, patient stories offer real-world experiences, and illustrations provide a visual key to the condition. A detailed resources section points the reader to reliable web sites and organizations that offer more help.

Concentrating on the most common types of neuropathy, Dr. Wiesman provides hope, help, and comfort to patients, families, and caregivers.

The Single-Neuron Theory: Closing in on the Neural Correlate of Consciousness

 Neurology/Neurosurgery  Comments Off on The Single-Neuron Theory: Closing in on the Neural Correlate of Consciousness
Jun 152020
 

This book presents an engaging account of a provocative new theory which explores how our brain generates conscious experience and where this occurs. It suggests that conscious experience happens not at the whole brain level but at the level of individual nerve cells. The notion that the brain as a whole is sentient is an illusion created by the exquisite organization of the individually conscious neurons. Despite appearances to the contrary, conscious behavior that seems to be the product of a single macroscopic mind is actually the integrated output of a chorus of microscopic minds, each associated with an individual neuron. The result is a theory that revolutionizes our conception of who and what we are.

This concise and practical guide enables the gynecologist to differentiate between benign and malignant gynecologic conditions to determine the best management options for the patient.
Over the past three decades, as the specialty of obstetrics and gynecology has matured into a broad and diverse group of skills and disciplines, it has become apparent that there are diagnoses and conditions in gynecologic oncology where the obstetrician-gynecologist has a level of uncertainty, or lack of confidence in his ability or knowledge base to adequately manage the patient and therefore refers the patient to a gynecologic oncologist.
This text portrays the advances in the field and reviews the current management of a number of gynaecologic conditions to give the reader the confidence needed to deal with these issues. The distinguides Editors have crafted the book to include:
Case vignettes to provide clinical context
Pathology notes to aid diagnostic outcomes
Management guidance for obgyn practitioners to enable the best outcome for their patients
Each topic is introduced with a concise overview followed by case-based scenarios which discuss the specific management of common problems.
Providing the general gynecologist with the current clinical information necessary to manage conditions and identify the situations where consultation or referral to a gynecologic oncologist would be in the patient’s best interest.

Polyamine Drug Discovery

 Pharmacology  Comments Off on Polyamine Drug Discovery
Jun 142020
 

Polyamines are ubiquitous molecules that are involved in a number of important cellular processes. Aberrations in their function or metabolism play a role in diseases such as cancer and parasitic infection. A number of validated drug targets have been identified, including enzymes in the polyamine biosynthetic and catabolic pathways and the S-adenosylmethionine synthetic and salvage pathways. Polyamine Drug Discovery is the first comprehensive volume to cover all aspects of the design and development of potential therapeutics targeting polyamine metabolism. The book details research progress from 1975 to the present date and discusses the design and use of polyamine metabolism inhibitors as therapeutic agents. Various polyamine-containing drugs are described that can be used in chemotherapy, and as treatments for infections including trypanosomiasis, leishmaniasis and malaria. Finally, the roles of polyamine analogues in chemoprevention, polyamine-containing vectors for gene delivery, and the design of polyamine-based epigenetic modulators are detailed. Each chapter addresses a different aspect of polyamine drug discovery and all are written by medicinal and biological chemists with particular expertise in developing agents that modulate polyamine metabolism or function. The book will increase the visibility of polyamine drug discovery among pharmaceutical researchers and provide a valuable reference for everyone working in the field.

Jun 142020
 

LEARN REFLEXOLOGY TO SUPERCHARGE YOUR HEALTH, DE-STRESS, ELIMINATE PAIN, REAWAKEN YOUR SEXUALITY AND LOSE WEIGHT
The ancient Chinese and Egyptian technique of Reflexology looks to the interior mechanisms of your body in order to bring healing and wellness. In this world of machinery, of synthetic drugs, we are slowly dying. Doctors operate machines to understand our interior bodies instead of utilizing their intricate sense of touch to administer their diagnosis. Why, then, does a single touch—on the back, on the side, from a friend, or from a partner—yield such a sense of calmness and relaxation? Could there be a hidden comprehension and power behind this sense of touch that can be orchestrated via an intricate and ancient technique? Look to the techniques of reflexology in order to regulate your interior energy and your vital organs. As you work to relieve tension, you build strength and circulation in your body. You can de-block your organs and you can begin to regulate your thyroid to boost weight loss abilities. Furthermore, you can eliminate the way your body experiences stress. Chronic stress kills brain cells and paves the road toward greater cell inflammation, cancers, and diabetes. As a trained reflexologist works your feet, your hands, or your ears, your body begins to open up to its own medicinal abilities. Your immune system kicks into a higher gear, and you begin to fight back against the fatigue and tension pulsing in your body. Your blood pressure lowers via the neural centers in the brain that hold direct connection to portions of your feet and your body falls into a relaxed state. Learn the intricate techniques outlined in this book to orchestrate your own reflexology. Understand the ancient tradition of reflexology, rooted in Ancient Egypt and China, and learn how the techniques churned their way to present day comprehensions. Understand how to give a basic, proper foot massage, and then look to the intricate reflexology mechanisms in order to yield stress relief, weight loss, and a boost in sexuality. Look to your feet to open up your circulation, relieve your tensions, and find ultimate relief.
