  • With hospitals, private clinics, and individual practices establishing complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) programs, guidelines and standards need to be established. It is important to note here that these guidelines, which will present consistency and create a basis for quality, are not created to protect the public from itself or from “quacks” who seek to take advantage of incurable disease states. First, there will always be those who seek to take advantage of people regardless of any guidelines, standards, or licensing laws.

  • Chapter 26 - The muscular system. Bones and joints do not themselves produce movement. By alternating between contraction and relaxation, muscles cause bones and supported structures to move. The human body has more than 600 individual muscles. Although each muscle is a distinct structure, muscles act in groups to perform particular movements. This chapter focuses on the differences among three muscle tissue types, the structure of skeletal muscles, muscle actions, and the names of skeletal muscles.

  • In defining a new paradigm it is difficult to know where to begin. How do you take fifteen years of medical practice in pathology and ten years of clinical observation utilizing the theories of traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture, homeopathy, and therapeutic nutrition and meld them into a model of biological understanding and medical practice? The answer is actually quite simple — start from the beginning and build a convincing model based upon sound physics, physiology, pathology, and clinical medicine and see if the model fits the expected outcome.

  • Since the first edition of this book published in 2002, there has been a significant evolution of implant design where many of the major implant systems share common design features that facilitate treatment, improve success, and allow clinicians to more readily adapt to an alternative system. At the same time, there have been huge developments in CAD-CAM applications to implant dentistry and rapid treatment protocols. Despite these changes, the underlying basic principles of thorough diagnosis, meticulous treatment planning, and execution of treatment remain unchanged.

  • EU enlargement, the CAP reform, changing consumer demands and globalization have also impacted negatively on the agricultural sector (Rudmann, 2008), with the scale of support provided to farmers drastically reduced (Alsos, Carter, Ljunggren & Welter, 2011). A gradual decline in income from traditional farming activities has forced many farming businesses to diversify in order to remain viable. Diversification requires farmers to combine other, typically non-agricultural activities with their core farm business.

  • Botanical Medicine for Women’s Health is being published at an interesting time and speaks simultaneously to a number of converging constituencies. It is a time of growing stress on both the medical system and the patient. Medical care is in crisis with large numbers of underinsured or uninsured patients needing care. Costs are rising from the practice of increasingly technical medicine while patients complain of the decreasing time and attention they are receiving from their medical providers. Further, the burden of chronic disease is growing in an aging population.

  • The use of implants has, little by little, been imposed on the world of dentistry. Some years ago, it was strongly suggested that the practitioners asked implant patients to sign a consent form to release the dentist from all responsibility in case of failure. Then, one day a patient in France sued his dentist for having prepared his teeth for a fixed partial denture without suggesting the implant alternative. The patient won the case. Soon it might be necessary to ask patients to sign a form indicating that they have refused implant treatment.

  • However, despite the convincing evidence in our pilot study of 228 patients, the implementation of CPC detection might result in unanticipated losses or dis-econcomies in the short run. There are two prime reasons, firstly that the new cost-effective technology will probably co-exist with the inefficient alternative for a considerable time period. In our study the idea is a complementary process, leading to decreased biopsies, thus there is not an alternative test; only that CPC detection is not performed.
