My The Lost Book Of Remedies Review

Highly Recommended

Recently several visitors of websites have asked me about this manual, which is being promoted quite widely across the Internet. So I ordered a copy myself to figure out what all the excitement was about.

All the modules inside this ebook are very detailed and explanatory, there is nothing as comprehensive as this guide.

Contributions of anthropology Helpseeking behaviour

It would be a mistake to believe that traditional healers are confined to developing countries or to ethnic minority groups in developed countries. Alternative medicine flourishes where Western biomedicine is perceived by the public to be ineffective, and psychiatry is one of those areas. Patients with psychiatric conditions are very likely to seek help from acupuncture, spiritual healing, homeopathy, or herbal remedies, in addition to consulting the general practitioner or psychiatrist. A sympathetic enquiry will elicit a number of sources of alternative medicine in the neighbourhood of the psychiatric facility. The efficacy of these treatments for any psychiatric condition has not been established, but it is a sobering thought that rauwolfia, an effective herbal antipsychotic, was used by Indian traditional healers for hundreds of years before chlorpromazine was introduced.

Preface to the series

The business of dietary supplements in the Western World has expanded from the Health Store to the pharmacy. Alternative medicine includes plant-based products. Appropriate measures to ensure the quality, safety and efficacy of these either already exist or are being answered by greater legislative control by such bodies as the Food and Drug Administration of the USA and the recently created European Agency for the Evaluation of Medicinal Products, based in London. In the USA, the Dietary Supplement and Health Education Act of 1994 recognized the class of phytotherapeutic agents derived from medicinal and aromatic plants. Furthermore, under public pressure, the US Congress set up an Office of Alternative Medicine and this office in 1994 assisted the filing of several Investigational New Drug (IND) applications, required for clinical trials of some Chinese herbal preparations. The significance of these applications was that each Chinese preparation involved several plants and yet was...

The diagnostic process disorders and diagnoses

In spite of this, it must be accepted that the patient and family are likely to expect statements to be made about the cause of their distress and symptoms. The members of all human groups expect their healers to discover the causes of their misfortunes (i.e. to make a diagnosis), and to provide remedies. This is so whether the group is a sophisticated and scientifically oriented modern society, or a non-industrialized society that relies on ethnic healers and folk remedies. The obvious relief of a patient or family on the pronouncement of an 'official' diagnosis is often evident in any type of healing activity, even though the diagnostic terms themselves mean very little. The pronouncement of an official diagnosis is taken to show that the doctor knows what is wrong, and therefore will be able to provide successful treatment or advice. If the diagnosis is expressed in terms that the patient can understand, it will have additional power as an explanatory force.

The Patients Perspective

The increasing popularity of homeopathic medicine, throughout the United States and Europe, throws further light on the ethical relationship between patients and the medical profession. From the scientific perspective of the doctor or pharmacist, the use of homeopathic medicines is irrational. The consumption of homeopathic medicine is grounded in a lack of adequate scientific education, and a confused idea of benign natural products. While this may appear to justify the exclusion of the proponents of alternative or complementary medicines from the debate over health care, and thus to justify medical paternalism through an appeal to good science, this would be too hasty a conclusion. The use of alternative medicine is not simply grounded in ignorance, but also reflects the failure of orthodox medicine to meet the needs and expectations of patients and the public. The incidence of adverse drug reactions, for example, suggests that orthodox medicine has no grounds for complacency (9)....

Understanding Complementary or Alternative Treatments

Alternative treatments include a wide variety of remedies, supplements, and techniques commonly thought to be outside the scope of conventional medicine and used instead of conventional therapies. Today, however, more and more major hospitals are establishing centers for alternative medicine and allowing many alternative treatments to be used in conjunction with traditional medicine. Consequently, the distinction between conventional and alternative medicine is becoming blurred, and complementary and alternative medicine (or CAM) is gaining in popularity.

The Appeal Of Alternative Treatments

Recent surveys have shown that over 50 percent of people with MS utilize some form of alternative medicine in addition to the conventional medicine recommended by their physicians. The reasons given were to improve quality of life and to enhance overall health and sense of well-being. These patients were not looking for a cure. Respondents report both positive and negative experiences with alternative treatments. But because MS is a disease in which symptoms commonly go into remission spontaneously, it is difficult to determine whether any treatment, traditional or alternative, is responsible for a remission.

Specialist Therapeutic Areas

A survey of the use of complementary and alternative medicine in the United Kingdom found that 20 of adults interviewed had used such treatments in the past year, and it was estimated that the annual expenditure on these treatments in the United Kingdom may exceed 1.5 billion (Ernst and White, 2000). Although some herbal products are licensed for use, there is a large variety of unlicensed herbal preparations, including traditional Chinese and Ayurvedic remedies, which are increasingly available. Herbal products may be perceived as ''natural'' and therefore safe

Andrew J Vickers and Barrie Cassileth

Complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) is a general term used to describe techniques as diverse as chiropractic and yoga, iridology and meditation, colonic irrigation and spiritual healing. As such, it resists simple definition. Most published definitions describe CAM simply as practices outside of mainstream care.1 A more fundamental issue concerns the difference between complementary and alternative approaches. Alternative therapies are used in place of mainstream care. Conversely, complementary therapies are used as adjuncts to mainstream care for symptom management and to enhance quality of life. This distinction is especially important in oncology, where treatment choices can be literally a matter of life and death.

Other Treatments For Hypertension

The disappointing results of some hypertensive therapies have caused doubts about traditional approaches to management of hypertension.36 Rates of successful blood pressure control remain low among treated patients.4 Only 47 of patients with hypertension achieve optimal blood pressures below 140 90 mmHg.37 Hypertension treatments that will help patients establish healthy lifestyle changes and have fewer and less severe side effects would probably lead to more optimum results and higher rates of patient compliance with treatment programs. In fact, the most common reason patients seek complementary alternative medicine (CAM) is dissatisfaction with the ability of conventional medicine to treat chronic diseases. Interestingly, those most likely to utilize CAM have higher educational levels, poorer health, and holistic philosophies.38 Clinical research related to medicinal use of herbal products has grown.39 Patients are willing to spend their money on herbal and alternative medicines not...

Exercise And Respiration

Patients with PD do not coordinate breathing with locomotion as seen in normal individuals.63 Combining this with fatigability of the respiratory pump during repetitive actions,46 it is not surprising that patient with PD have prominent fatigue and poor exercise tolerance. However, patients are able to improve pulmonary function through a pulmonary rehabilitation program.64 Furthermore, those who engage in regular aerobic exercise may maintain good pulmonary function.65,66 These types of studies suggest that nonpharmacological measures may be as important in addressing pulmonary dysfunction as dopaminergic therapy. Because of limitations due to postural instability and freezing of gait, strategies to maintain aerobic capacity can be more challenging. Multidisciplinary care is often necessary. The PD population is increasingly using alternative medicine approaches. The effect of interventions such as Qigong, yoga, and tai chi on respiratory system are not entirely understood but...

Other supplements

Many herbal products are promoted to people with liver dysfunction, but there is a lack of safety and efficacy data. Some products that have been identified as being hepatotoxic include borage, chaparral, coltsfoot, comfrey, DHEA, germander, jin bu huan, kava kava, liferoot, pennyroyal, periwinkle, poke root, American skullcap and shark cartilage. Other herbal or alternative medicine supplements may have adverse interactions with medications prescribed to those with liver failure, so caution must be taken in recommending any product. The two most popular herbal supplements for liver disease are milk thistle and S-adenosyl-methionine (SAMe). Milk thistle contains silymarin, which supposedly reduces free radical production and lipid peroxidation associated with hepatotoxicity it is also promoted to be an antifibrotic agent 47 . SAMe is a methyl donor for methy-lation reactions and a participant in glutathione (an anti-oxidant) synthesis 48 . Meta-analysis 49 and Cochrane reviews 49, 50...


The liver is intimately involved in nutrient metabolism and storage. Therefore, malnutrition is likely to occur in the presence of liver failure. The degree of malnutrition depends on the type and degree of liver disease, presence of malabsorption, metabolic rate and psychosocial factors. Nutrition prescriptions should be individualized for patients with liver dysfunction. Common dietary restrictions for individuals with ESLD include sodium and fluid restrictions. Protein should not be restricted. Nutrition supplementation may improve nutritional status and outcomes. If TF is considered, nasoenteral tubes are usually the safest, lowest-risk access. Research currently does not support the use of herbal alternative medicine supplements such as milk thistle or SAMe.
