Causality in Medicine

Uncategorized
The problem of causality is of great importance: medicine and medicine medicine, psychology and sociology compete fiercely in attempts to find out the true causes of certain manifestations of the disease and cure the patient by eliminating them. They associate some causes with pathogens, others with events of early childhood, methods of education or working conditions. Anything is considered to be the sources of the disease - from the lead content in the air to social problems. It seems to us that this approach leads both medicine and psychology to a dead end. Of course, the answers to the question "why?" you can find as many as you want, but putting it at the forefront and making it an end in itself, we must admit that the reasons found are…

Search for causes

Uncategorized
It is difficult to connect our reasoning with scientific ideas. People are ready to fully or partially associate the occurrence of symptoms of the disease with some mental processes. But what about those diseases (and there are much more of them), the causes of which are unequivocally associated with physical causes? Here we are faced with the main flaw of the usual way of thinking: a person is used to interpreting all events perceived by him at the causal level, constructing chains in which cause and effect are mutually unambiguous. You can read this phrase because we wrote it, because the publisher printed this book, because it was sold to you in a store, etc. This way of thinking seems so natural that most of humanity considers it as a…

The Person is Sick

Uncategorized
The ascetic was sitting in a cave and meditating. Suddenly a mouse scurried into the cave and clung to his sandals. The ascetic got angry and opened his eyes: "Why are you stopping me from thinking? "" I'm hungry, " the mouse squeaked. "Go away, you stupid mouse," the ascetic said. "I am looking for unity with God, how dare you stop me!" "How do you want to become one with God, if you are not able to become one even with me?" All the previous arguments were aimed at realizing that a person can be sick, but can not get sick. This is the main difference between our and the medical approach to the problem of illness. Medicine considers the disease as "an obstacle to the normal healthy state…

Everything that exists is in you, and everything that is in you is also in everything that exists. There is no boundary between you and the object that is near you, just as there is no distance between you and objects that are far away. All of them, the biggest and the smallest, the lowest and the highest, are represented in you. A single atom contains all the elements that exist on Earth. All the laws of life are contained in one movement of the spirit. One drop of water contains all 38 secrets of the boundless ocean. In a separate form of the manifestation of your existence, all forms of the existence of life in general are contained. Cahil Gibran A person says "I", meaning by this many of…

Vertical Topography of Consciousness

Uncategorized
How differently people evaluate these complementary positions can be seen from the fact that when studying the different capabilities of one and the other hemispheres, the abilities of the left hemisphere were quickly identified and described, while the properties of the right hemisphere remained a mystery for a long time. It didn't seem to be capable of anything useful. But in fact, nature has a much higher estimate of the capabilities of the right, irrational part of the brain, because in dangerous situations involving a threat to life, the right hemisphere automatically switches to the dominant state, and not the left hemisphere. A stressful situation cannot be adequately and quickly assessed at the analytical level, decomposing it into its components. If the right hemisphere is dominant, then it is possible…

Polarity

Uncategorized
Jesus said to them: "If you two become one, and if you turn the inner into the outer, and the outer into the inner, making the upper the lower, if the male and the female become one, if the male ceases to be male and the female ceases to be female, if you look at the world with the same eyes and leave the same footprints on the earth, then you will enter the kingdom of God." The Gospel of Thomas, log. 22 We are forced to turn to a somewhat difficult topic, the topic of polarity, because this is an important prerequisite for understanding the entire book. Talking about polarity is never superfluous, because it is the central problem of being. By saying "I", a person separates himself from…

Disease and Symptoms

Uncategorized
We live in a time when medicine is constantly presenting us, enthusiastic amateurs, with evidence of its verging on miraculous power. But in the chorus celebrating science, the voices of skeptics are getting louder. Many people prefer to entrust their health not to academic medicine, but to healers and homeopaths. Skeptics have enough reasons for criticism: negative side effects of taking medications, changes in symptoms (when some manifestations of the disease seem to be erased, and others behave "atypically". - Ed.), inhumane approach, high cost, and much more. Interesting is not so much the arguments of critics, as the fact of its existence, because before becoming constructive, she had to go through an emotional stage, giving the impression that all is not right that the-beaten path, although closer to the…

The Effects of Coronavirus: Stroke and Epilepsy?

Uncategorized
German scientist Frank Erbgut-head of the neurological center at the Nuremberg clinic reported on the neurological manifestations of COVID-19. According to the Professor, in seriously ill patients, stroke, inflammation of the meninges, dizziness and even epilepsy can appear as complications. The virus triggers a self-destructive autoimmune process in which the body attacks its own nerve cells. Frank Erbgut noted that neurological complications were observed in 36.4 % of patients in Wuhan, China. But the Professor reassured, stating that such complications do not appear in the General mass. And they should be considered the exception rather than the rule.

The Ketogenic Diet in Drug-resistant Epilepsy

Diet
Relevance Epilepsy is a disorder in which periodic seizures are caused by abnormal electrical impulses that occur in the brain. In most people, seizures can be controlled with one or more antiepileptic medications, but sometimes after a while these medications stop helping (so-called drug-resistant-epilepsy). People with drug-resistant epilepsy may be prescribed a special diet (the so-called ketogenic diet). Ketogenic diets are high in fat and low in carbohydrates. The purpose of this review was to study the effects of ketogenic diets on seizure control, cognitive abilities (such as learning, attention, and academic performance in children; learning, attention, and memory in adults), and behavior. We also looked at the side effects of this diet, the number of participants who dropped out of studies, and the reasons for their dropping out. Characteristics…
