Enzyme is the medicine of the future. Enzyme is the missing link in nutrition. Without enzymes, there is no life. Its significance can be parallel to the discovery of vitamins. Edward Howell MD, the father of food enzyme therapy, best describes enzymes as, “Substances that make life possible; they are the spark of life. No mineral, vitamin, or hormone can do any work without enzymes. They are the manual workers that build your body from proteins, carbohydrates, and fats. Without the life energy of enzymes we would be nothing more than a pile of lifeless chemical substances – vitamins, minerals, water and proteins.” This book gives a clear, simple and concise explanation to help you appreciate the importance of enzymes, a new found alternative, on how enzymes rule over all other nutrients to promote your health and longevity. Inside you will find: • Why you need to supplement your diet with enzymes • Why enzymes are more important than vitamins and minerals • Why eating cooked food can harm your health • What happens to your health if you are deficient in enzymes • How enzymes can give you energy, reduce craving and keep you from being overweight • How enzymes can strengthen your immune system • What you must do to prevent depletion of enzymes in your body • How enzymes can help you have a better complexion • How enzymes can help you against flatulence, bloating, constipation, diarrhea, heartburn and many other problems related to poor digestion.

Dr. Fleurizier made a detour by studying medicines, after he graduated with a Master of Social Practices of Development from Sorbonne, in Paris, France. He became among other things a Master Herbalist before he studied to be a Naturopathic Doctor and a Practitioner of Traditional Chinese Holistic Energy Medicine. His knowledge of herbs has helped others to BE WELL. Nowadays he practices Energy Medicine to first balance people on the energetic and emotional levels, but still believes that herbs could be suitable for some individuals mostly depending on the ailments they may have developed. Dr. Roland Fleurizier, N. D., has a background in Naturopathy and Applied Kinesiology. His dedication and passion for natural and holistic energy medicine is an extension of the various experiences he has accumulated to date. He conducts seminars and weekly radio programs on diabetes, blood pressure, cancer, osteoporosis, multiple sclerosis, epilepsy, thyroid, etc. for the sake of bringing Haitian expatriates and other ethnicities easier access to information on general health. Diabetes has become the most common disease in the United States. It has been associated with the rapid spread of poor lifestyle choices. Dr. Fleurizier teaches a health class and believes that the way to tackle diabetes is even largely unknown to most physicians. He also believes that diabetics do not fully comprehend all the aspects of their ailments. With this in mind, he has undertaken this research and initiated a comprehensive, restorative agenda for diabetics to use in order to subjugate their disease.

This textbook ‘Biochemistry’ has become one of the most preferred text books (in India and many other countries) for the students as well as teachers in medical, biological and other allied sciences. The book has undergone three editions, several reprints, and revised reprints in a span of 13 years. There are many biochemistry textbooks in the market. Some of them are purely basic while others are applied, and there are very few books which cover both these aspects together. For this reason, the students learning biochemistry in their undergraduate courses have to depend on multiple books to acquire a sound knowledge of the subject. This book, ‘Biochemistry’ is unique with a simultaneous and equal emphasis on basic and applied aspects of biochemistry. This textbook offers an integration of medical and pure sciences, comprehensively written to meet the curriculum requirements of undergraduate courses in medical, dental, pharmacy, life-sciences and other categories (agriculture, veterinary, etc.). This book is designed to develop in students a sustained interest and enthusiasm to learn and develop the concepts in biochemistry in a logical and stepwise manner. It incorporates a variety of pedagogic aids, besides colour illustrations to help the students understand the subject quickly and to the maximum. The summary and biomedical/clinical concepts are intended for a rapid absorption and assimilation of the facts and concepts in biochemistry. The self-assessment exercises will stimulate the students to think rather than merely learn the subject. In addition, these exercises (essays, short notes, fill in the blanks, multiple choice questions) set at different difficulty levels, will cater to the needs of all the categories of learners. New to This Edition The book offers an integration of medical and pure sciences, and is comprehensively written, revised and updated to meet the curriculum requirements of Medical, Pharmacy, Dental, Veterinary, Biotechnology, Agricultural Sciences, Life Sciences, and others studying Biochemistry as one of the subjects. It is the first text book on Biochemistry in English with multi-colour illustrations by an author from Asia. The use of multicolours is for a clearer understanding of the complicated biochemical reactions. It is written in a lucid style with the subject being presented as an engaging story growing from elementary information to the most recent advances, and with theoretical discussions being supplemented with illustrations, flowcharts, and tables for easy understanding of Biochemistry. It has each chapter beginning with a four-line verse followed by the text, biomedical concepts, a summary, and self-assessment exercises. The lively illustrations and text with appropriate headings and sub-headings in bold type faces facilitate reading path clarity and quick recall. It provides the most recent and essential information on Molecular Biology and Biotechnology, Diabetes, Cancer, Free Radicals, Free radicals and Antioxidants, Prostaglandins, etc. It describes a wide variety of case studies and biochemical correlations and several newer biomedical aspects- Metabolic syndrome, Therapeutic diets, Atkins diet, Trans fatty acids, Epigenetics, Nutrigenomics, Recombinant ribozymes, Membrane transport disorders, Pleural fluid etc. It contains the basics (Bioorganic and Biophysical Chemistry, Tools of Biochemistry, Immunology, and Genetics) for beginners to learn easily Biochemistry, origins of biochemical words, confusables in Biochemistry, principles of Practical Biochemistry, and Clinical Biochemistry Laboratory.
Neuere Entwicklungen der Entscheidungstheorie, die in der deutschsprachigen Literatur bislang noch kaum Beachtung fanden, sind Gegenstand dieses Buchs. Es geht um Alternativen zur subjektiven Erwartungsnutzentheorie, die der Erfassung intransitiver Präferenzen und der Berücksichtigung von Ergebnisplausibilitäten, Ambiguität, potentieller Enttäuschung und potentiellem Bedauern dienen. Im Mittelpunkt steht ein axiomatischer Ansatz, der die Entwicklung leicht verständlicher Axiomensysteme und die Lösung einiger bislang noch ungelöster Axiomatisierungsprobleme erlaubt. Die ausführlich dargestellten Beweise sind in Anhänge zu den einzelnen Kapiteln ausgelagert.

This comprehensive nursing fundamentals text emphasizes clinical decision making and scientific research within the context of an evolving health care delivery system as the foundation for contemporary nursing practice. This interactive approach offers an alternative framework to the nursing process by focusing on the "real world" issues that affect clinical decision-making in nursing including cultural, socioeconomic, ethical/legal, and financial considerations. A practical four-part organization facilitates the transfer of classroom knowledge to actual clinical practice by first addressing context, then process, content, and special considerations.
