Practical formulas are included for making sodium sulfite for testing passive transfer, and Sheather's solution for fecal flotation. Useful appendixes summarize essential information on drugs and drug dosages, fluid therapy, and normal values and conversions. A diverse, authoritative panel of contributors provides current information on the care of valuable breeding stock as well as pets.

Das egoistische Gen

Mit einem Vorwort von Wolfgang Wickler

Author: Richard Dawkins

Publisher: Springer-Verlag

ISBN: 3642553915

Category: Science

Page: 489

View: 1751

p”Ein auch heute noch bedeutsamer Klassiker“ Daily Express Sind wir Marionetten unserer Gene? Nach Richard Dawkins ́ vor über 30 Jahren entworfener und heute noch immer provozierender These steuern und dirigieren unsere von Generation zu Generation weitergegebenen Gene uns, um sich selbst zu erhalten. Alle biologischen Organismen dienen somit vor allem dem Überleben und der Unsterblichkeit der Erbanlagen und sind letztlich nur die "Einweg-Behälter" der "egoistischen" Gene. Sind wir Menschen also unserem Gen-Schicksal hilflos ausgeliefert? Dawkins bestreitet dies und macht uns Hoffnung: Seiner Meinung nach sind wir nämlich die einzige Spezies mit der Chance, gegen ihr genetisches Schicksal anzukämpfen.

Heilgeheimnisse aus dem Regenwald und moderne Wissenschaft. Alberto Villoldo ist einer der bekanntesten und meistgelesenen Schamanen unserer Zeit. Als er eine niederschmetternde Diagnose bekommt – fünf verschiedene Arten von Hepatitis, toxische Bakterien im gesamten Körper und Parasiten im Gehirn – ist er dem Tode nah. Zum ersten Mal in seinem Leben steht er vor der Herausforderung, das Wissen, das er seit Jahrzehnten selbst lehrt, radikal an sich selbst anzuwenden. Mit Erfolg! Villoldo hat sich selbst geheilt – mit One Spirit Medizin, einer höchst wirksamen Synthese aus uralten schamanischen Methoden wie Fasten, Meditieren und Visionssuche und aktuellsten Erkenntnissen aus der modernen Wissenschaft. Diese umfassen das Entgiften von Körper und Geist durch Superfoods und Nahrungsergänzungsmittel, das Ausschalten der »Todesuhr« in unseren Zellen durch Beeinflussung der Mitochondrien, Energiearbeit zur Reparatur von Gehirn und Körper auf Quantenebene und eine revolutionäre Methode, in nur sechs Wochen einen grunderneuerten, vitalen und widerstandsfähigen Körper zu kreieren. Mit One Spirit Medizin gelingt Villoldo der lange überfällige Brückenschlag vom Jahrtausende alten schamanischen Erfahrungsschatz zu mordernsten medizinischen Erkenntnissen. Mit vielen Übungen und Rezepten.

Die Erkenntnis, dass die Gesellschaft immer älter wird, gehört heute schon fast zum Allgemeingut. Das heißt aber nicht nur, dass immer weniger Kinder geboren werden, sondern auch, dass die Lebensspanne der Menschen länger wird. Deshalb verbreiten sich Erkrankungen, die eher im Alter auftreten, immer mehr. Alzheimer ist so eine Krankheit und zudem eine, die in der Gesellschaft weitgehend tabuisiert wird. Dabei stellt die Pflege eines Alzheimerkranken enorm hohe Anforderungen an Angehörige, Freunde und Dienstleister. "Alzheimer für Dummies" hilft die Krankheit zu erkennen, die Pflege und den Alltag mit einem Demenzkranken, Familie und Arbeit zu organisieren. In einem speziellen Kapitel widmet sich das Buch der Pflege der Pflegenden. So deckt das Buch ein breites Spektrum der Bedürfnisse der Angehörigen eines Alzheimerkranken ab.
