It has been known since the discovery of the biological role of NO in the 1980s, that supplying NO donors such can have many beneficial effects in different conditions by stimulating stem cells and modulating the immune response, however, there also exists a substantial risk of side-effects with long-term use. Excess NO can inhibit mitochondrial me...

To fulfill the general scientific method requirement for one of our earlier Minnesota experiments, namely that laboratory spaces operated by other investigators at different sites in the United States can be conditioned to a higher electromagnetic gauge symmetry state than our normal background state and such a space can be specifically tuned so th...
Article
Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) is quantitatively the most abundant hormone in humans and mammals, with a wide variety of physiological effects, including major regulatory effects upon the immune system. Two of the most striking aspects of DHEA are a steady decline in DHEA with age and a significant deficiency in DHEA in patients with several major d...
Article
Depression is probably the most common illness in the world, and it is much maligned by patients and physicians as well as the insurance industry. We have found that all patients with depression have one or more chemical and neurochemical abnormalities. More importantly, we have found that 85 per cent of patients can be brought out of depression wi...

A review of medical and psychological literature reveals that the most common concern among males is inadequate penis size. There has been, to this date, very little published in the medical literature on the subject of penis size. Current studies done on 7 adult males replicated those reported in England by Dr. Brian Richards. In the 7 males there...

With the economics of medical care and the history of electrotherapeutics firmly in mind, one should seek treatments that are efficient and effective. There is no question that relief of the symptom of pain must be a primary focus of treatment, whether or not a specific pathology is known. Electric devices may be justifiably used for their placebo...
Article
Migraine periodically disables millions of Americans and thus has a significant economic impact on society. Successful treatment of migraine requires that the physician understand the pathophysiology underlying migraine and educate the migraineur in the management of this chronic pain syndrome. Recent advances in the receptor biochemistry of seroto...

Article
To the Editor.— In response to the editorial by John P. Callan, MD, I want to say that in general, his concern is the same as that of most physicians who have joined the American Holistic Medical Association. The name "holism" is important primarily because of its basic philosophy: "The whole is greater than the sum of the parts." Those of us who...

Problem: A 28-year-old unmarried woman was involved in an automobile accident 3 years ago when jagged glass partially severed her right median nerve below the antecubital fossa. The nerve was repaired by an expert neurosurgeon and she is left with minimal numbness of the tips of her index and long fingers. She still complains of burning pain along...
Article
In acute pain, TENS, ice packs, and a calm, reassuring attitude and voice are useful in reducing pain. Narcotic requirements can be reduced, and chronic pain may be prevented. Complications such as paralytic ileus and atelactasis can also be reduced. These techniques can be used in the emergency ward, the recovery room, and the doctor's office.

Biofeedback and the associated mental self-regulation exercises represent a major new system for treatment of many chronic stress-induced illnesses. Most studies report that 80% of patients improve after adequate biofeedback training. The future of biofeedback training is dependent upon application of the techniques in clinical practice. Using a te...
Article
Back pain, with or without sciatic radiation, may come from a number of anatomical sites. Radiofrequency facet denervation suggests that a majority of patients seem to have pain referred from distress of the facet joints or the sacro-iliac joints. In those patients who are properly selected and have not had previous surgical treatment, radiofrequen...
Chapter
In a country which spends millions of dollars each year on drugs, medical care and hospitalization, isn’t it ironic that so little attention is paid to PREVENTION? One cannot deny that disease treatment has made great strides in many areas over the years; in fact, the need for many disease treatments has been virtually wiped out by that very effect...

A technique for radiofrequency localization and coagulation of articular nerves supplying the spinal facets is described and results are reported from a series of 207 patients followed 6 to 21 months (mean 31 months). Relief of pain was achieved in 79% of previously unoperated patients, in 41% of those with laminectomy but no fusion, and in 27% of...
Article
This study indicates that external electrical stimulation is a valuable tool for control of acute pain in about 80 percent of patients but, for significant relief of pain, in only about 25 percent of patients with chronic pain. The author recognizes that in order to increase its use, a system for delivery of this therapy under a doctor's prescripti...
Article
Results are reviewed of dorsal column electrical stimulation for chronic pain in a series of 80 patients. In the light of the experience gained from this series, indications and patient suitability for this form of therapy are discussed. Complications occurring after implantation are tabulated.
Article
The majority of back and sciatic pain syndromes appear to be the result of mechanical alterations in the small facet joints. Of 275 patients seen by the author, 70% had pain related primarily to facet distress.

Article
Electrical control by stimulation of the nervous system is an ancient practice. The sequence of events and discoveries leading to the present stimulation for pain control are reviewed. Transcutaneous stimulation is now used to treat a wide variety of symptomatic disorders. Dorsal column stimulation is reviewed as applied to pain control and the cli...
Article
Transcutaneous electrical stimulation has been used for the past 5.5 years as a screening test to determine the suitability of patients for surgical placement of dorsal column stimulating electrodes and radio receivers. During these tests in more than 300 patients, it was obvious that relief of pain and local anesthesia or analgesia were often obta...
Chapter
The concept of stimulation of the dorsal column of the spinal cord for relief of intractable pain was introduced in 1966. At that time, laboratory data on cats and monkeys suggested that this was potentially a feasible method for relieving pain. In the spring of 1967, the first patient was done. Since that time and to the time of this abstract, we...
Article
Plain cervical roentgenograms in a 54-year-old female with left-sided neck pain showed an enlarged C3–C4 intervertebral foramen. Cervical myelography in this area was normal. Arteriography revealed that the left vertebral artery looped into this enlarged foramen, and surgical exploration showed that the loop had severely compressed the rootlet emer...
Article
HE shortcomings of destructive lesions used as treatment for neurological disorders ~,6 have triggered a search for new techniques. Electrical stimulation of the nervous system has been an attractive possibility because undesirable side effects of the stimulus may be eliminated when the electrical current is stoppedY We have studied the basic requi...

OST lesions of the central nervous system are associated with an altered blood-brain barrier. Thus isotopic brain scanning has become an important diagnostic tool, and chemotherapy of brain tumors remains potentially useful if differential selective uptake of a chemotherapeutic agent by the tumor can be improved. However, the breakdown of the blood...

To the Editor:— A letter in the American Journal of Hospital Pharmacy (25:34, 1968) by Sydney L. Burgee, Jr., pointed out that local anesthetics of several kinds, especially procaine hydrochloride, tetracaine hydrochloride, and lidocaine hydrochloride, react with the agents used to determine protein content of cerebrospinal fluid, giving a false h...
Article
To the Editor. —Brinksmanship, the bravado of men, has been amply demonstrated again in recent weeks with Russia's invasion of Czechoslovakia and Jaffe, Librot, and Bender's1 report of "medical" treatment of chronic subdural hematoma. Lack of treatment is hardly therapy; and in some instances it should be considered outside the usual standard of t...
