A Return To Healing Chapter 3: How Scientific is Scientific Medicine?

submitted by: admin on 03/27/2015
    Proclaiming to be scientific and being scientific are two different things. Medical research and practice have about 15% solid science.

Abnormal Heart Rhythms

submitted by: admin on 02/18/2015
Abnormal heart rhythms may arise because peri-infarction tissues are very irritable and electrically unstable. These rhythms can compromise cardiac output and be lethal.

Aneuploidy and Cancer with David Rasnick Part 1

submitted by: admin on 05/12/2015
  Theories about the cause of cancer are many but the answers are not clear. Aneuploidy is an imbalance of the number of chromosomes, In cancer they usually range between 60-90 chromosomes rather than 46. No two cancers are the same. Normal cells do not de-differentiate, they progress in an abnormal way. Gene mutations are too small to cause cancer.                

Aneuploidy and Cancer with David Rasnick Part 2

submitted by: admin on 05/12/2015
  It is the number of chromosomes, not genes, that lead to the massive changes required for cancer. There are no confirmed cases of normal diploid cancer. Cancer cells are damaged cells that are trying to survive and as a consequence they cause disease. Gene theories do not explain the progression of cancer.                

Aneuploidy and Cancer with David Rasnick Part 3

submitted by: admin on 05/12/2015
  How aneuploidy affects the cancer treatments we use is discussed. Today's treatment is designed to kill cells, mostly cancer cells. Antibodies against certain abnormal genes do not work--Gleevac and Herceptin are examples. Aneuploidy explains drug resistance and why treatments targeted to certain genes cannot work.            

Atrial Fibrillation

submitted by: admin on 02/19/2015
  Atrial fibrillation occurs when the top part of the heart, called the atria, beats at around 300 beats per minute and leads to ineffective contraction of the atria. This predisposes to clots forming in the left atrium that can break off and travel to the brain and block circulation and result in strokes. Anticoagulation is the treatment of choice but...

Compassion is the Desire to Relieve Suffering

submitted by: admin on 09/19/2013
Compassion is wanting someone to be free of suffering. Empathy is an evolked memory about ourself, not another person. Yet there is an empathy that comes from understanding the human condition. By itself, It is not an effective way to help another person. Compassion is not driven by our own emotional story or by emotions at all, it is driven by wisdom. When we...
