Nutrition in Clinical Practice Ebook

Diet and Cancer
The link between diet and cancer, supported by in vitro, animal, and epidemiologic studies, is convincing. Decisive intervention trials are for the most part lacking, however, because of the protracted time course of carcinogenesis and a lack of reliable surrogate markers in most cases. An exception is studies in populations with well-defined nutrient deficiencies that increase the risk of specific cancers, where supplementation may dramatically reduce risk; the Linxian study in rural China is noteworthy (1,2). Most reviews of diet and cancer cite the work of Doll and Peto (3) and suggest that one-third or more of all cancer is related to nutritional factors and potentially preventable by nutritional means. Dietary factors may influence cancer initiation, promotion, and progression via direct effects on DNA, indirect effects on immune function (see Chapter 11), and overall vitality (see Chapter 45).
As is the case for atherogenesis, the process of carcinogen…

The V*lv* anatomy, phisiology, and pathology Pdf Ebook

Image
This is a much needed book for the patient with v*lv*v*g*n*l symptomatology
too often faces the prospect of an incomplete evaluation and misdirected therapies.
There are many reasons for this. Physicians with practice time constraints
magnified by an office full of waiting patients too often begin their physical
examination with the introduction of the v*g*n*l speculum, bypassing the
v*lv*. In addition, the record of diagnostic accuracy of v*g*n*l infections by
physicians shows a high error rate and inaccurate diagnoses lead to inappropriate
-->
therapeutic
interventions, which only prolong and sometimes intensify patient’s symptomatology.
Finally, to a large extent, the care of patients with v*lv*v*g*n*l problems
requires dermatologic insights that are too often lacking for many practitioners.

Basic Clinical Massage Therapy PDF Ebook

Image
--> Basic Clinical Massage Therapy: Integrating Anatomy and Treatment is primarily a textbook for advanced massage therapy students who have already acquired the basic skills of Swedish massage and are now pursuing additional training in clinical massage therapy. In this book, I define â€oeclinical massage therapy― as the use of manual manipulation of the soft tissues to relieve specific complaints of pain and dysfunction. As its title implies, our book integrates detailed anatomical information with basic clinical massage therapy techniques. By embedding illustrations of internal structures into photographs of live models, we are able to show exactly what muscle is being worked on, where it is, where it is attached, how it can be accessed manually, what kinds of problems it can cause, and one or more basic techniques for effectively treating it. The student can clearly see the involved structures in relation to surrounding structures, surface landmarks, and the therapist's…

Complementary Althernative Therapies in Nursing PDF

Image
-->
Alternative medicine is any practice claiming to heal "that does not fall within the realm of conventional medicine."It may be based on historical or cultural traditions, rather than on scientific evidence.Alternative medicine is frequently grouped with complementary medicine or integrative medicine, which, in general, refers to the same interventions when used in conjunction with mainstream techniques, under the umbrella term complementary and alternative medicine, or CAM. Critics maintain that the terms “complementary” and “alternative medicine” are deceptive euphemisms meant to give an impression of medical authority.A 1998 systematic review of studies assessing its prevalence in 13 countries concluded that about 31% of cancer patients use some form of complementary and alternative medicine.Alternative medicine varies from country to country. Jurisdictions where alternative medical practices are sufficiently widespread may license and regulate them. Edzard Ernst …

Instruction : please click on image to download













Nursing theory is the term given to the body of knowledge that is used to define or explain various aspects of the profession of nursing

Types of nursing theories

Grand nursing theories
Grand nursing theories have the broadest scope and present general concepts and propositions. Theories at this level may both reflect and provide insights useful for practice but are not designed for empirical testing. This limits the use of grand nursing theories for directing, explaining, and predicting nursing in particular situations. Theories at this level are intended to be pertinent to all instances of nursing.


Mid-range nursing theories
Middle-range nursing theories are narrower in scope than grand nursing theories and offer an effective bridge between grand nursing theories and nursing practice. They present concepts and propositions at a lower level of abstraction and hold great promise for increasing theory-based research and nursing practi…
