I'm a little cautious to be posting this, because strict materialism is strong with users here, and vitalism-haters always pop up to spout their beliefs. I was once a materialist too, but then the medical establishment left me out in the cold.
Materialism was seemingly supported by science. But in the past few decades non-dogmatic scientists have made great progress in giving names to phenomenon which existed before anyone knew how to describe them, or had tools to measure them. A few examples:
Action potential: In physiology, an action potential is a short-lasting event in which the electrical membrane potential of a cell rapidly rises and falls, A nerve conduction study (NCS) is a test commonly used to evaluate the function, especially the ability of electrical conduction, of the motor and sensory nerves of the human body. The Goldman–Hodgkin–Katz flux equation (or GHK flux equation) describes the ionic flux carried by an ionic species across a cell membrane as a function of the transmembrane potential and the concentrations of the ion inside and outside of the cell. Since both the voltage and the concentration gradients influence the movement of ions, this process is a simplified version of electrodiffusion. Electrodiffusion is most accurately defined by the Nernst-Planck equation and the GHK flux equation is a solution to the Nernst-Planck equation with the assumptions listed below.
My journey back to health started with nearly losing it completely. I knocked myself out and nearly drowned at the lake when I was 17 years old. While the emergency medicine was great - I didn't need a hole drilled to relieve pressure from intra-cranial bleeding, but it was nice of the doctors at the hospital to watch my condition long enough to make sure. I have Retrograde amnesia starting an hour or two before I sustained the injury, and Anterograde amnesia for the next two weeks (first 10 days were at the hospital). My memory started to recover at about the 2-week mark, and had mostly recovered by 6 months.
The neurologist who'd followed my case at the hospital sent me for neuro-psychological evaluation, and said I'd probably get better without interventions. Indeed, the double vision had mostly resolved after 4 or 5 months. But my everyday experience wasn't like before. I got headaches from running, wearing birkenstocks, and certain foods, so I stopped running and wearing birkenstocks, and paid close attention to what I eat.
When I started at college, things went rapidly downhill. It was an entirely miserable 3.5 year experience, and after I graduated with my CS degree I spent the next several years trying to figure myself out.
At one point I found a really neat email list. The owner of said list said that "if you have a health condition, the best place to start is with what Edgar Cayce said about it." He also said that the best current source of information about the body's subtle energies is Donna Eden, author of Energy Medicine (actually written by husband David Feinstein, based on interviews with Donna). Edgar Cayce was known as "the sleeping prophet" because he had no conscious memory of the health readings he gave. They followed up on the recipients of the readings, and people who implemented the suggestions usually got the benefits they were told to expect.
My reason for sharing all this now, in this slashdot story about an Electrotherapy Museum, is that Edgar Cayce sometimes recommended electro-therapeutic devices. These included the violet ray (which is mentioned at the electrotherapymuseum's website), a weak battery called the "wet cell", and a subtle battery now known as the Radial-Appliance.
The Radial Appliance was said to help balance the body's "subtle electric charge", to help improve a person's ability to relax. I had trouble sleeping, and decided that I needed a Cayce Radial Appliance... But all I could find was the device made by the Cayce Association's "Official Supplier", and there was also a website detailing the difference between the Baar Radiac and the Radial Appliance described by Edgar Cayce (the original website was taken offline when Baar threatened to sue his dissatisfied customer for trademark infringement).
So I decided to build my own. I had trouble falling asleep from childhood until I started using my device regularly. It's a rather niche product, but the people who buy my version tend to love them.
I don't have any Radial Appliances left to sell right now because I've been concentrating on a new project related to natural approaches to health. The Birth Control situation is rather tragic. Over the course of the 20th century various scientists described the hormone system, and figured out how to use human-identical hormone supplements to help women balance their hormones. Safe bioidentical hormones are not profitable for the pharmaceutical industry, so they sell women various xeno-hormone-based drugs instead. This is why birth control is so good at helping women gain weight, for example.
Progesterone USP is non-prescription for physiologically-appropriate amounts (women make 15-20mg/day during the luteal phase of their cycle) because it was available before the 1938 Food & Drug act was passed.
And interestingly enough, researchers have recently found that giving progesterone USP injections to humans who sustain a traumatic brain injury doubles their survival chances. I wonder what my experience would have been if they'd known to give a useful form progesterone right away, way-back-when.
Since the users here are mostly men, I guess I should say that Perfect Progesterone can buffer high levels of testosterone, and might help your hair grow back. I use Amazon's fulfillment service, so if you don't like what you get just send it back.
