Pubpsher: University of Chicago Press
“Visceral.”—Wall Street Journal “Illuminating.”—Publishers Weekly “Heroic.”—Science The immune system holds the key to human health. In The Beautiful Cure, leading immunologist Daniel M. Davis describes how the scientific quest to understand how the immune system works—and how it is affected by stress, sleep, age, and our state of mind—is now unlocking a revolutionary new approach to medicine and well-being. The body’s ability to fight disease and heal itself is one of the great mysteries and marvels of nature. But in recent years, painstaking research has resulted in major advances in our grasp of this breathtakingly beautiful inner world: a vast and intricate network of specialist cells, regulatory proteins, and dedicated genes that are continually protecting our bodies. Far more powerful than any medicine ever invented, the immune system plays a crucial role in our daily lives. We have found ways to harness these natural defenses to create breakthrough drugs and so-called immunotherapies that help us fight cancer, diabetes, arthritis, and many age-related diseases, and we are starting to understand whether activities such as mindfulness might play a role in enhancing our physical resilience. Written by a researcher at the forefront of this adventure, The Beautiful Cure tells a dramatic story of scientific detective work and discovery, of puzzles solved and mysteries that linger, of lives sacrificed and saved. With expertise and eloquence, Davis introduces us to this revelatory new understanding of the human body and what it takes to be healthy.
The Secrets of the Immune System Revealed The must-read summary of ‘The Beautiful Cure: Harnessing Your Body’s Natural Defences’, by Daniel M. Davis. Our immune system is spread throughout the body and involves many types of cells, organs, proteins, and tissues. It can distinguish our own tissues from foreign tissues and help us defend against invasions from harmful bacteria, viruses, and parasites. It can also recognize dead, faulty, and cancerous cells and clears them from our body. In The Beautiful Cure, Professor Davis chronicles the major discoveries on how our immune system works and how these discoveries lead to a revolution in beating cancer, arthritis, and many other diseases. He details how stress, diet, sleep, age, exercise, and our state of mind affect the immune system and how scientists harness and unleash the power of the immune system to develop new medicines and therapies to combat cancer.

As doctors' time becomes more limited, communication with patients becomes more important and the need for doctor-patient understanding becomes critical. Here is a book that helps bridge the gap between the professional language of health care providers and that of people whose first language is Spanish.A staple of southwestern health care for more than twenty years, this dictionary can make a difference in patient care. Now available in a revised edition, it focuses on vocabulary used in health contexts by Spanish-speaking people in order to help patients tell their stories and medical practitioners to understand them. Unlike other bilingual dictionaries that emphasize scientific terms, this one focuses on standard Spanish terms as well as regional expressions peculiar to Mexican SpanishÑ language encountered in Chicago as easily as in Phoenix.In the Spanish-to-English section, Spanish terms are followed by English translations and sample sentences to help health care practitioners understand how a patient might use them: aced’as, heartburn, pain in lower esophagus perceived as in the heart. Uno tiene la tendencia a sufrir de aced’as despuŽs de comer chile. One has a tendency to suffer heartburn after eating chile. (syn: acidez, agruras del est—mago) In the English-to-Spanish section, English words are translated into simple Spanish terms along with English synonyms.Now available in a revised edition, this handy reference features: ¥ more than 3,000 entries ¥ new entries that reflect current health problems and treatments ¥ inclusion of cognates ¥ Spanish definitions of English words ¥ anatomical drawings with bilingual labels ¥ more material on medicinal plants, including an appendix of poisonous and non-poisonous plants ¥ lists of food items and kinship termsThis book is an indispensable reference for all health care professionals who see patients of Mexican origin. Combining idiomatic precision with technical accuracy, it can help break down language barriers on either side of the border.

Discovering Truth and Inspiration on the Way to Wellness

Chemotherapy is the greatest fraud ever perpetrated upon the American public. This statement must reach the public consciousness. The Big Pharma-FDA complex must be exposed as a cartel colluding, not on curing cancer, but on generating profits. Does chemotherapy work? Maybe, sometimes, with some specific cancers. But very often, it does not work. The “best weapon” used in the “war on cancer” traces its genesis to mustard gas. The cancer may die, but the collateral damage is the patient’s life. Approximately 600,000 Americans die each year ostensibly from “cancer”—but are they actually dying from treatment? A very provocative question. Bill Henderson interviews Margaret Bermel about her new book called “The Cancer Odyssey.” Bill says, "I really enjoyed your book. If everyone would read it BEFORE they get the cancer diagnosis (and go into "fear orbit"), the millions of unnecessary "cancer" deaths would end." Here is a direct link where you can listen to it or download it (plain mp3 audio file). http://webtalkradio.net/?s=bill+henderson&task=search How to Live Cancer Free – “The Cancer Odyssey” by Margaret Bermel
