Toxoplasma gondii: Parasite Interaction and Behavior Manipulation

Toxoplasma gondii is an obligate intracellular parasite that causes different lesions in men and other warm-blooded animals. Humoral and cellular immune response of the host against the parasite keeps the protozoan in a latent stage, and clinical disease ensues when the immunological response is compromised. Brain parasitism benefits the parasite causing behavioral changes in the host, not only in animals but also in humans. Schizophrenia and epilepsy are two neurological disorders that have recently been reported to affect humans coinfected with T. gondii.

Formation of the Mind and the Emergence of Consciousness

By:

Hugo Lagercrantz

The quest for the emergence of consciousness is fundamental. However, consciousness has been regarded as “airy-fairy” to speak about at conferences and seminars in neuroscience and clinical medicine. But to talk about the brain without discussing the mind is like dealing with the gastrointestinal canal without mentioning digestion, as pointed out by the philosopher John Searle. Since the beginning of this century, consciousness has been a hot topic in neurobiology partially due to the more sophisticated brain imaging techniques.

Apples Botany Production and Uses

Apples Botany and the production and uses. From the 13th century, apples became more and more widely planted throughout Europe in gardens of royalty and commoners. Raw apples were seldom consumed, but they were more greatly prized when cooked and sometimes blended with spices and sugar or honey. Fermented juice, or cider, like beer, was preferred to the occasionally questionable local water-supply. By the 17th century, there were at least 120 cultivars described in western Europe.

Chelation Therapy in the Treatment of Metal Intoxication

In contrast, several toxic heavy metals, such as arsenic, mercury, copper, and lead may be referred to as sulfur-seekers, having higher affinity to endogenous sulfur than oxygen groups. These metal cations may be bound and inactivated by the two vicinal thiol groups on the therapeutic agent BAL. However, today, the clinical use of BAL is limited due to its high toxicity. Its less toxic derivatives, meso-2,3-dimercaptosuccinic acid (DMSA) and D, L-2,3-dimercapto- 1-propane sulfonic acid (DMPS), have now entered the clinical arena and superseded dimercaprol in most cases of heavy metal poisonings. These latter dithiols are nowadays available for oral administration, as tablets, as well as for parenteral administration.

The present book also gives guidelines for clinicians who are responsible for diagnosis and treatment of metal poisonings and overload diseases. Also, some guidelines for further research are precipitated in the last chapter.

Female Sexual Dysfunction

Sexual dysfunction occurs in both women and men, although less attention has been paid to female sexual dysfunction. This article reminds primary care physicians that they must assume a proactive role in the diagnosis and treatments of these disorders. Traditionally, there are four areas of sexual problems in women: desire disorders, arousal disorders, orgasmic disorders, and sexual pain disorders. Desire disorders include a lack of interest in having sex or a lessening in the desire to have sex. Arousal disorders are when a woman does not feel a sexual response in her body or begins to respond but cannot maintain the response. Orgasmic disorders occur when she cannot have an orgasm or experiences pain during an orgasm; sex pain disorders are characterized by pain during or immediately following intercourse. Long-term medical diseases, minor ailments, medications, and psychosocial difficulties are etiologic (causative) factors in female sexual dysfunction. Gynecologic problems and cancers are also frequent sources of sexual dysfunction. The article stresses that patient education and reassurance, with early diagnosis and intervention, are essential for effective treatment.

The Transformational Power of Fasting

You can use this book to explore only the spiritual aspects of fasting, or only the emotional aspects of fasting, or only the physical aspects of fasting. All are examined in the pages that follow. Doing so will still be of benefit to you. But fasting is a highly complex multifaceted act that is most effective when viewed as a whole and not as a mix of three pieces glued together. For when we fast we are engaging in a multidimensional process filled with myriad ramifications for who we are and how we live. What we are doing is deciding to consciously engage the hidden parts of ourselves, the secret face of the sacred that is in all forms of the material world, and our most fundamental relationships with food and nurturing.

The Art of Presentation

An essential aspect of food-combining is its overall appearance – the way the food is mixed with other food regarding texture, size, color, and arrangement. Food that is impatiently prepared without a sense of care and nourishment will look and taste that way and will have a poor effect on the health of those who eat it.

Dangers Every Women Needs to Know About the Birth Control Pill

When you take birth control pills, you impose synthetic hormones on your natural cycle.

Many birth control pills contain high levels of estrogen that effectively convince your pituitary gland that you are pregnant (this explains some of the side effects of the drugs) and that you don’t need to ovulate. Because your body thinks you are pregnant, the uterine lining thickens. Once you start the placebo pills, however, your estrogen level drops suddenly, and your body menstruates “normally.”

Parasites and Cancer – The Connection

As an integrative medical doctor, I want to share with you the connection between cancers and parasites. Few doctors give much attention to the possibility of parasitic infection when it comes to initiation or continuation of cancers. A partial reason for this is that doctors and patients are under a false belief that our public health and sanitation is sufficient enough to prevent parasite problems.

The Melanin Millennium

In any post-colonial civilization, the creation of knowledge is of plausible significance because it is the means by which culture is transmitted and sustained. By the fifteenth century, various European powers, including Great Britain, Spain, Portugal, and France, transmitted Western culture via the colonial subjugation of non-European peoples. Those who were colonized by the West were physiologically differentiated from Europeans vs. relatively darker skin color. Referred to as “people of color,” these non-Europeans were native to Africa, Asia, the Americas, and the Caribbean. After colonization, Europeans as Western operatives imposed their traditions and customs upon people of color while simultaneously denigrating anything other than the Western lifestyle. Germane to that effort is Western intelligentsia’s control of information by the selective manufacturing of knowledge, validated by the prestige of its academy.

The Amazing Healing Properties of 13 Common Fruits

Fruit is not only enjoyable to eat – as it should be, considering the very word fruit stems from the Latin word frui, meaning “to enjoy, use” – but it also nourishes and protects the body with powerful, built-in medicinal activity. Fruits are by design a “perfect food,” intended to entice animals to consume them to help disseminate their seeds, for instance.

The Psychiatric Wolves Attack More Innocent Children

To understand even a little bit about real psychiatry, versus the false picture, you have to know that someone running around the streets naked and screaming has nothing to do with a mental disorder.

If you can’t grasp that, you’ll always have a lingering sense that psychiatry is on the right track. It isn’t and never was. Not from its earliest days, and not now, when it has the full backing and force of the federal government behind it.

African American Slave Medicine

Common diseases of the time. The migration of Europeans and Africans to North and Central America introduced new diseases to the regions. Bewell wrote, “An essential aspect of disease during the colonial period was that it affected different populations differently because people from different parts of the world would have been previously exposed to different pathogens.”

For example, the Europeans introduced influenza, tuberculosis, smallpox, measles, and the plague, as well as potent alcoholic beverages and firearms, to African American and Native American populations with devastating effects.

A Secret History of Coffee Coca Cola

Cortes has produced a beautiful and subversive history of how that bottle of Coca-Cola ended up in your fridge. The end product is a damning, epic tale of hypocrisy: while the US government leads the charge to criminalize the 10 million people who chew coca, it has simultaneously conspired with a multinational beverage giant to ensure an endless supply of coca to fuel its profits.

The most popular cola, Coca-Cola, was invented by Dr. John Pemberton, a pharmacist who mixed the kick of kola caffeine with a kick of coca.

What’s Wrong With Eating Meat?

What’s wrong with Eating MEAT?

The first thing many people ask when they hear about the vegetarian diet is, “What’s wrong with eating meat? Millions of people do it; why should I stop?” There are very important reasons why it is preferable not to eat meat-not emotional or sentimental, but compelling and scientific reasons. If you consider these points carefully, yes you will want to try a vegetarian diet from now on.

HUMAN BEINGS

Human characteristics are in every way like the fruit eaters, very similar to the grass eaters, and very unlike the meat eaters, as is shown in the table below. The human digestive system, tooth and jaw structure, and bodily functions are completely different from carnivorous animals. As in the case of the anthropoid ape. The human digestive system is twelve times the length of the body. Our skin has millions of tiny pores to evaporate water and cool the body by sweating; we drink water by suction like all other vegetarian animals; our tooth and jaw structure is vegetarian, and our saliva is alkaline and contains ptyalin for predigestion of grains. Human beings clearly are not carnivores by physiology – our anatomy and digestive system show that we must have evolved for millions of years living on fruits, nuts, grains, and vegetables.
