A well-written, easy-to-absorb guide to healing, change, and a healthy way of being in the world.
Health is not a possession – it’s a process. It’s something we do, the result of how we think and feel, a state of mind and being.
Nearly 2,500 years ago Hippocrates taught that being healthy was evidence that an individual had achieved harmony both within themelves and with their environment. The authors of ‘NLP and Health’ believe that this is equally true today. Their book demonstrates how to use NLP tools to bring your mind and body into harmony and to explore the enigmatic key...
THE FORM AND FUNCTION of multicellular organism would not be possible without efficient communication among cells, tissues, and organs. In higher plants, regulation and coordination of metabolism, growth, and morphogenesis often depend on chemical signals from one part of the plant to another. This idea originated in the nineteenth century with the German botanist Julius von Sachs (1832–1897). Sachs proposed that chemical messengers are responsible for the formation and growth of different plant organs.
These are not issues which can be lightly dismissed;
however, it is clear that any debate on human dignity
needs to separate the various elements of the debate in
order to consider whether opposition to cloning stems
from concern for human dignity or respect for divine
dignity. As well as to determine whether it is designed to
protect the individual that may be cloned or the society
whose sense of personal and collective identity might
be challenged by the concept of sharing the world with
The R-type lectin EW29, isolated from the earthwormLumbricus terrestris,
consists of two homologous domains (14 500 Da) showing 27% identity
with each other. The C-terminal domain (Ch; C-half) of EW29 (EW29Ch)
has two sugar-binding sites in subdomainsaandc, and the protein uses
these sugar-binding sites for its function as a single-domain-type hemagglu-tinin.
Biometrics uses methods for unique recognition of humans based upon one or more
intrinsic physical or behavioral traits. In computer science, particularly, biometrics is
used as a form of identity access management and access control. It is also used to
identify individuals in groups that are under surveillance.
The key objective of the book is to provide comprehensive reference and text on
human authentication and people identity verification from physiological, behavioural
and other points of view (medical biometrics).
The wide geographical distribution of the rice
plant ( Oryza sativa L.) and its long history of
cultivation in Asian countries have led to the development
of a great diversity of varietal types.
Similarly, workers in various rice-growing countries
use different terms to designate identical
morphological and physiological characters, agronomic
traits, gene symbols, and cultural practices.
Whereas varietal diversity in germ plasm is desired
in rice breeding, variations in nomenclature hinder
scientific communication among the workers.
The methods for human identity authentication based on biometrics â€“ the physiological and behavioural characteristics of a person have been evolving continuously and seen significant improvement in performance and robustness over the last few years. However, most of the systems reported perform well in controlled operating scenarios, and their performance deteriorates significantly under real world operating conditions, and far from satisfactory in terms of robustness and accuracy, vulnerability to fraud and forgery, and use of acceptable and appropriate authentication protocols. ...
release of STH (and also other peptide hormones including insulin, glucagon, and gastrin). PRH: prolactin-RH remains to be characterized or established. Both TRH and vasoactive intestinal peptide (VIP) are implicated. PRIH inhibits the release of prolactin and could be identical with dopamine. Hypothalamic releasing hormones are mostly administered (parenterally) for diagnostic reasons to test AH function. Therapeutic control of AH cells. GnRH is used in hypothalamic infertility in women to stimulate FSH and LH secretion and to induce ovulation.
This chapter describes the physiological role and pathophysical consequences of histamine release
and provides a summary of the therapeutic use of histamine H1-receptor antagonists. H2-receptor
antagonists are discussed in detail in Chapter 37: Agents Used for Control of Gastric Acidity and
Treatment of Peptic Ulcers and Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease in the context of prevention and
treatment of peptic ulcers, their principal therapeutic application.
As it has not yet been established whether the second messengers involved
in the neutrophil response have identical or specific signalling requirements
for each physiological function, protein kinase C (PKC) isoforms and mito-gen activated protein kinases (MAPKs) were studied in human chemotaxis
triggered by the full agonist for-Met-Leu-Phe-OMe (fMLP-OMe) and the
‘pure’ chemoattractant for-Thp-Leu-Ain-OMe [Thp1,Ain3] analogue.
Experiments were performed in the presence or absence of extracellular
, known to be an important modulator of second messengers....
Glycogen phosphorylases (GPs) constitute a family of
widely spread catabolica1,4-glucosyltransferases that are
active as dimers of two identical, pyridoxal 5¢-phosphate-containing subunits. In GP fromCorynebacterium callunae,
physiological concentrations of phosphate are required
to inhibit dissociation of protomers and cause a 100-fold
increase in kinetic stability of the functional quarternary
A growing body of international data shows strong contextual effects for material factors, for example
people at the same level of income will have lower mortality if they are in more, rather than less,
equal states (Wilkinson and Pickett 2007a). One explanation for this and for the strong social gradient
in health is that relative deprivation is a catalyst for a range of negative emotional and cognitive
responses to inequity.
