"I do not think you have what it takes to improve your health. I know you do. The purpose of this book is to help you know it too." For thousands of years, mystics, gurus, imams and priests have taught with a metaphysical certainty that meditation can heal. Somehow, they knew we are more than we can see. That the macromolecular patterns that make us common also make us different; and this difference is an important constituent of growth and a necessary component of success. Whether the energy is believed to be produced by the god of Abraham, or the self-augmenting patterns of the universe; they all appreciate that the core of life is the same. The human mind has the power to repair the body, and meditation is one of many ways to do it. If your acceptance of new information must be weighed and confirmed by the scientific process, then the institutional data to support meditation as a medicine is growing. Researchers who use it to study the mind are beginning to unlock the creative ways our mind and immune cells interact; because, immune cells have the ability to contribute to the broadcast of chemical messages sent by our brain. Emotions, expectations and other sensations are being transmitted all day, every day. Harnessing the energy that conducts our lives is only a few practice sessions away. It is also important to understand that meditation is not something you do. It is something you become; and that happens in stages and gets stronger with practice. Let Meditation Be Your Medicine is a book about what happens when an ordinary person discovers the human mind can heal and strengthen the body, and deflect the ailments associated with aging.
In the first book of its kind, Helen J. Power uses the history of the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine to explore the development of tropical medicine in Britain in the twentieth century. The contributors also consider the social, political, and economic forces that shape medicine and its application in the context of imperialism, independence, and postcolonial history. The Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine provides a unique framework for exploring the changes which took place as medicine progressed from being a tool of empire, to a form of social welfare, and finally to a basic human right.
In the development of many medical technologies the beginning is characterised by an emphasis on the basic scientific principles of the technology and the optimisa- tion of the functional aspects of the technology. As a technology matures there is a tendency for the underlying principles to be forgotten as the dinical applications begin to develop and the focus moves to an understanding of the dinical applica- tion. This maturity brings with it new challenges for those involved in the use of the technology. An acceptance of the methodology may lead to a scaling back of the ba- sic training of staff into the fundamentals of the techniques and lead to a lack of questioning as to those issues which lead to the optimisation in dinical applications. This lack of basic training may ultimately lead to a stifling of research and develop- ment of the technology as a whole as trained staff becomes a scarce commodity. Nudear medicine is no exception to this development cyde. As a medical special- ty the discipline has matured. The basic imaging technology has become more reli- able in everyday use requiring less input from scientific staff. Clinical procedures have become protocols which are often followed without due understanding of the basic principles underlying the imaging procedure. This is clearly demonstrated when new radiopharmaceuticals are introduced into the market place.
