    The present invention relates to a device for supplying electric energy to biological tissue, the supply head in order to help support a wide variety of physiological processes, including healing of some pathological condition, and the variation of the different stages of growth, e.g., attenuation of blood flow, chronic pain, tissue fluid, etc., is also intended to affect the vitality of. —Electricity, while it has no weight, is capable of being measured by means of its intensity, or by its quantity. Light may be measured or tested by its brilliancy. If one light is of less intensity than another and both of them receive their impulses from the same source, there must be something which interferes with that light which shows.

History. As von Reichenbach was investigating the manner in which the human nervous system could be affected by various substances, he conceived the existence of a new force allied to electricity, magnetism, and heat, a force which he thought was radiated by most substances, and to the influence of which different persons are variously sensitive.

He named this vitalist concept Odic force. John Wesley Pioneers Electric Healing. Many people know John Wesley was the inspiration behind the Methodist Denomination. But few know he was one of the first persons in England to use a static electricity machine to heal many disorders including blindness, gout, sprains, deafness, toothaches, and stomach and back pain.

Wesley wrote in his book, Primitive Physick, that electricity is "the. In The Invisible Rainbow, Firstenberg traces the history of electricity from the early eighteenth century to the present, making a compelling case that many environmental problems, as well as the major diseases of industrialized civilization―heart disease, diabetes, and cancer―are related to electrical pollution/5(52).

The potential of electrical impulses to treat disease is based on the fact that the body is one big circuit board. Neurons wend their way into and out of organs like threads in ornate medieval.

Introduction. Pharmacotherapy, the treatment of disease by the administration of drugs, is presently the principal treatment for headache and migraine and is as old as recorded history (Weatherall,p.

).During the past few years, several non-drug treatments have been applied for pharmacoresistant headache, including deep brain stimulation (hypothalamus for cluster headache), Cited by: In short, scientific medicine in the 20th century, for all its successes, has left a major gap in the understanding of the pathogenesis of disease between the action of environmental risk factors and the basic disease processes that follow from exposure to them and that produce the now well-defined deranged physiology that characterizes by: The cardiac electrical signal controls the heartbeat in two ways.

First, since each electrical impulse generates one heartbeat, the number of electrical impulses determines the heart rate. And second, as the electrical signal "spreads" across the heart, it triggers the heart muscle to contract in the correct sequence, thus coordinating each.

Two patients were still undergoing treatment as of April 1, One patient with ovarian cancer refractory to cisplatin and taxanes underwent treatment for 2 additional years for a total of 73 months.

Three forms of electricity are employed, viz: The induced current, the galvanic current, both of which are dynamical, and the static current, which is frictional.

This creates ‘cell stress' and under these conditions, the cell can only manufacture a substandard protein coating for itself. Aluminium has been associated with renal bone disease, anaemia and dementia [1).

Although measurable, serum levels are not a good marker of organ concentration and proper water treatment is the only preventative measure possible.

Other disease associations with contaminants are summarised in the table 3. Gas or liquid chromatography with mass Author: Shyam Dheda, Carolyn Van Eps, Carmel Hawley, David n. Patients diagnosed with incurable cancer or advanced disease may not identify themselves as requiring palliative care. A palliative approach addresses the need for pain and symptom management, and the psychosocial and spiritual support of patients and their families, even if they choose to undergo life-prolonging treatments such as chemotherapy.

MET may yield better clinical outcomes with less current, lower frequencies, and reduced treatment time. The last three decades have seen a rise in the use of microcurrent electrical therapy (MET).

Many Lyme victims suffer so badly they will eventually end up being permanently disabled and this costs the system tremendous amounts of money.” It is a complexe disease, sometimes different diseases.

Heart failure occurs when the heart muscle is not able to function in a manner that can sufficiently supply the body with oxygen. Congestive heart failure is the failure of the heart muscle to maintain the circulation, leading to a backup of blood in the veins that causes: swelling (particularly in the lower parts of.

Electricity in the Workplace. Places of work generally have power nominally supplied at volt (single phase) and volt (3 phase) although some larger workplaces will receive electricity at a higher supply voltage.

Luckily, some look very promising. In rare patients, liver transplant can bring about a cure for the disease if it has not spread beyond the liver but is too large for surgical resection alone.History of medicine - History of medicine - Japan: The most interesting features of Japanese medicine are the extent to which it was derivative and the rapidity with which, after a slow start, it became Westernized and scientific.

In early times disease was regarded as sent by the gods or produced by the influence of evil spirits. Treatment and prevention were based largely on religious.
