Chilean Stories: Exploring Herbal Medicine In South America, Sue Evans 2010 Southern Cross University

Chilean Stories: Exploring Herbal Medicine In South America, Sue Evans

Dr Sue Evans

I visited Chile for a month to teach herbal medicine and learn about its place in Chilean life and particularly in the culture of indigenous people there, the Mapuche. The Mapuche culture is animistic and highly complex. Any attempt on my part to summarise their approach to medicine in a short article such as this would be woefully inadequate. However my contact with the culture deepened my understanding of what it is for me to be a herbalist, and challenged my perspectives on some of the pressing contemporary issues for our profession. In this article I will first introduce the ...

Illicit Ketamine Induced Frequency Of Micturition In A Young Malay Woman, Noorzurani Robson Associate Prof. Dr., B. Vicknasingam, S. Narayanan

Associate Prof. Dr. Noorzurani Robson

Issues. The growing use of illicit ketamine among young adults poses a public health concern in Malaysia. In contrast to medical use of ketamine, illicit use has been reported to produce adverse effects on the urinary tract and, in particular the bladder. Approach and Key Findings. This case report describes a young Malay woman who developed severe bladder symptoms (urinary frequency) after consuming illicit ketamine. A history of illicit ketamine use was initially missed, and she was consequently diagnosed and treated for a urinary tract infection. Her symptoms persisted despite several courses of antibiotics. The patient was subsequently referred to ...

Enhanced Psychosocial Well-Being Following Participation In A Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Program Is Associated With Increased Natural Killer Cell Activity., Carolyn Y Fang, Diane K Reibel, Margaret L Longacre, Steven Rosenzweig, Donald E Campbell, Steven D Douglas

Marcus Institute of Integrative Health Faculty Papers

BACKGROUND: Mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR) programs have consistently been shown to enhance the psychosocial well-being of participants. Given the well-established association between psychosocial factors and immunologic functioning, it has been hypothesized that enhanced psychosocial well-being among MBSR participants would be associated with corresponding changes in markers of immune activity.

OBJECTIVES: The objectives of this study were to examine changes in psychosocial and immunologic measures in a heterogeneous patient sample following participation in a MBSR program.

DESIGN: A single-group, pretest/post-test design was utilized.

SETTING: The intervention was conducted at an academic health center.

SUBJECTS: This pilot study involved 24 participants ...


Discovery Of Quinic Acid Derivatives As Oral Anti-Inflammatory Agents, Kui Zeng 2010 University of Tennessee Health Science Center

Discovery Of Quinic Acid Derivatives As Oral Anti-Inflammatory Agents, Kui Zeng

Theses and Dissertations (ETD)

Quinic acid (QA) esters found in hot water extracts of Uncaria tomentosa (a.k.a. Cat’s claw) exert anti-inflammatory activity through mechanisms involving inhibition of the pro-inflammatory transcription factor nuclear factor kappa B (NF-κB). Herein, we described the synthesis and biological testing of novel QA derivatives. Inhibition of NF-κB was assessed using A549 (Type II alveolar epithelial-like) cells that stably express a secreted alkaline phosphatase (SEAP) reporter driven by an NF-κB response element. A549- NF-κB cells were stimulated with TNF-α (10 ng/mL) in the presence or absence of QA derivative for 18 hours followed by measurement of SEAP ...

Joseph Banks And The Continuing Influence Of European Colonisation On Australian Herbal Practice, Sue Evans 2010 Southern Cross University

Joseph Banks And The Continuing Influence Of European Colonisation On Australian Herbal Practice, Sue Evans

Dr Sue Evans

The practice of Western herbal medicine in Australia is characterised by a dependence on botanically exotic species rather than those which are native and indigenous to this country. Medicinal herbs were among the plants chosen by botanist Sir Joseph Banks to be transported from England for cultivation in the new Australian colony in 1788. While there are some records of the use of local medicinal plants by early settlers, evidence of this information originating from Indigenous Australians is absent and today very few native or indigenous plants are found in the materia medica used by Western herbalists in Australia. It ...

The Isleño Décima: Media And Memory In Spanish-Speaking South Louisiana, JEANNE GILLESPIE 2010 University of Southern Mississippi

The Isleño Décima: Media And Memory In Spanish-Speaking South Louisiana, Jeanne Gillespie

JEANNE GILLESPIE

From the early fifteenth century to the end of the eighteenth century, the Spanish colonial process involved the settling of vast tracks of land. From their first colonial experiment in the Canary Islands in 1402, the Spanish administration learned that it was sometimes more effective to import assimilated settlers from already established colonial possessions than to attempt massive conversion and cultural assimilation. To shore up the vast spaces of the northern Gulf Coast, particularly "West Florida" and eastern Texas, the Spanish governors sent for colonists including groups of Canary Islanders who settled outposts along the Red River, as well as ...
