editore: Cambridge University Press

pagine: 446

This insightful and thought-provoking 2002 collection of chapters describes the rapid advances that had revolutionised reproductive medicine in the years leading up to its publication. This transformation was the result of converging and overlapping developments in reproductive biology, molecular biology and genetics. These advances allied with remarkable technical developments pushed the boundaries of this discipline ever faster forward. This volume surveys this rapid expansion as it stood in 2002 and looks ahead at exciting prospects for the future that stand at the watershed between basic science and clinical application. From oogeneis and spermatogenesis, through to fertilisation, embryogenesis and cloning, this volume looks at scientific advances. Subsequent chapters focus on infertility and its diagnosis and treatment using the full armory of assisted reproductive technologies. A concluding section surveys the impact of these developments on the provision, regulation and financing of reproductive health care in the global community.

Detox per il fegato. Ritrova salute e vitalità

editore: Il Punto d'Incontro

pagine: 175

Problemi digestivi, pesantezza, mal di testa, senso di stanchezza, brufoli, stitichezza, depressione... Ne soffriamo tutti, chi più chi meno, e li consideriamo parte della nostra quotidianità. In realtà sono solo i sintomi di un fegato sovraccarico, affaticato e intossicato. Alimentazione squilibrata, ricca di grassi, zuccheri e alcol, abuso di medicinali, inquinamento, stress e ricorso a sostanze eccitanti sono fattori che mettono a dura prova il nostro fegato, costringendolo a un superlavoro. "Detox per il fegato" spiega come rimettere a nuovo questo organo fondamentale, disintossicandolo e facendogli recuperare tutta la sua funzionalità, per ritrovare vitalità e benessere.

Antinfiammatori naturali. Prevenire e curare in modo efficace, senza effetti collaterali

Christopher Vasey

editore: Il Punto d'Incontro

pagine: 190

I farmaci antinfiammatori sono tra i più venduti. Tuttavia i prodotti di sintesi presentano numerose controindicazioni, con effetti anche pesanti su stomaco, fegato e reni. Privi di controindicazioni e non gastrolesivi, i rimedi illustrati da Christopher Vasey costituiscono soluzioni valide ed efficaci, senza dannosi effetti collaterali. Molte piante medicinali sono più valide della loro controparte di sintesi, perché intervengono sui meccanismi e sulle cause che provocano l'infiammazione dei tessuti, ma nel contempo sono molto più delicate sugli organi vitali. "Antinfiammatori naturali" illustra i meccanismi della reazione allergica e passa in rassegna le varie patologie a base infiammatoria che coinvolgono tutto l'organismo. Descrive in dettaglio le piante medicinali più utili, spiega come utilizzarle e valuta se sono ormonali, non ormonali o antistaminiche. Con utili indicazioni sugli integratori alimentari antinfiammatori come gli omega-3, l'idroterapia e i cibi alcalinizzanti.

Se il sole esplode. L'enigma della schizofrenia

Christopher Bollas

editore: Cortina Raffaello

pagine: 190

Nel momento in cui la prescrizione di farmaci è diventata trattamento di elezione per la schizofrenia Christopher Bollas, psicoanalista di fama mondiale, sostiene con forza che questi pazienti possono essere aiutati con altri trattamenti se, subito dopo l’esordio psicotico, viene data loro la possibilità di parlare con qualcuno regolarmente, per un periodo di tempo prolungato. Con grande delicatezza, l’autore descrive la schizofrenia come una modalità di risposta alla precarietà di un mondo altamente imprevedibile, ricordandoci che cercare qualcuno con cui parlare quando ci si sente afflitti è il principio fondamentale di qualsiasi cura dei conflitti umani.

L'equilibrio acido-base. Un approccio completo per riacquistare salute e vitalità. Con indicazioni per una dieta rigenerante e alcalinizzante

Christopher Vasey

editore: Il Punto d'Incontro

pagine: 218

Dimagrire in modo sano, ritrovare benessere e vitalità, prevenire le malattie: tutto questo è possibile grazie alla dieta acido-base, un rivoluzionario metodo per riequilibrare il pH dell'organismo attraverso l'attenta scelta degli alimenti e la loro combinazione. Per stare bene l'organismo ha bisogno di un pH lievemente alcalino. Tuttavia l'alimentazione moderna, che abbonda di zuccheri e cereali raffinati, cibo spazzatura e alcolici, è decisamente acidificante e l'acidificazione produce numerosi disturbi: stanchezza, allergie, infezioni recidivanti (cistite, raffreddore, bronchite), colite, problemi digestivi, reumatismi, osteoporosi ecc. Attraverso l'interpretazione delle misure del pH, una corretta alimentazione, i menù alcalini e gli integratori alcalinizzanti, "L'equilibrio acido-base" propone una dieta varia, ricca, saporita e fatta di alimenti alcalinizzanti, per ritrovare energia, forma fisica e uno stato di salute ottimale. o
