Improve Your Health With Simple Data Analysis
Igor Stukanov
Problem Many people experience side effects from using properly prescribed (by doctors) drugs or medical treatments. About 170 million Americans take prescription drugs. About 1.9 million are hospitalized each year from properly prescribed drugs. About 128,000 Americans die each year from properly prescribed drugs. The European Commission estimates that about 200,000 Europeans die each year from properly prescribed drugs. The main reasons for these deaths are because of incorrect dosage (overdose) and adverse side effects from properly prescribed (by doctors) drugs. Simple Solution A simple solution to this problem would be to teach patients an easy way to adjust dosage, timing, and compositions of drugs to reduce side effects and avoid overdose. This is the purpose of this book. Readers of this book will learn examples of how to: · adjust dosages of drugs to reduce side effects and increase efficiency of treatments; · how to select the best timing for administration of drugs; · how to optimize compositions of ingredients; · how to select optimal combinations from different treatments of a medical condition; · how to tune medical treatments to personal biological rhythms. In chapter 1, simple principles of how drugs work are introduced. In chapter 2, methods of dosage adjustments are described and demonstrated using three examples. In chapter 3, shows how to determine best times for taking consecutive dosages of drugs. In chapter 4, optimization of compositions and combinations are demonstrated. In chapter 5, how to integrate traditional medical treatments, such as drugs and medical procedures with non-traditional approaches, such as herbs, minerals, oils, acupuncture, acupressure, physical exercise practices (yoga, tai-chi, qi-gong, ayurveda, etc.), breathing techniques, biofeedback, meditation, prayer, light therapy, audio therapy, color therapy, homeopathy, hypnosis, self-assertions, neuro-linguistic programming, etc. are discussed. In several medical studies research has found that aspirin taken at one particular time may be in an active state in a patient's blood for twice as much time as when it is taken at another time. In another study on mice, research observed that the same drug administered to the mice at particular times results in fast healing. But the same drug administered at a different time results in a worsening condition. These examples shows that tuning medical treatments to our biological rhythms is an important aspect of the whole approach to our treatment of medical conditions. In chapter 6 gives some examples of how to tune medical treatments to our biological rhythms. In appendices 1-4, scripts to do automatic calculations, described in the book, are presented.

Aliens Ate My Homework (Book 2)
Matthew S. Cox
Kelly Donovan wants to save the Earth from aliens, but her plan has a serious snag—she needs to do it before bedtime. It’s been a few weeks since the Nolmek scattered giant crystals around the world that unintentionally gave some people super powers. They also nearly eliminated war and shared technology to solve famine, drought, and pollution, so pretty much everyone loves them. Alas, the aliens didn’t visit Earth purely out of kindness. They needed a primitive species to enslave. Kelly discovers they’re speeding up their plans, already abducting people from the super-prison right out from under the cops’ noses, the same prison her mad-scientist father is stuck in. She’s desperate to protect him, but unfortunately, no one is willing to believe the Nolmek could be bad guys. Worse, they know she’s on to them. If she can’t find proof of the aliens’ plan, stop the invasion, and be in bed before nine, she faces worse than the enslavement of humanity—she’ll be grounded.

SMACK in the Middle
Gibbs A. Williams
SMACK in the Middle: My Turbulent Time Treating Heroin Addicts at Odyssey House In 1967, I was offered a job treating heroin addicts at a new establishment on the Lower East Side of Manhattan. I was excited because I knew I would be working alongside one of New York’s most determined, pioneering and charismatic leaders in the field of addiction treatment, Dr. Judianne Densen-Gerber, founder and director of Odyssey House. After a few days on the job, there was no doubt in my mind that Dr. Judi was a genius who possessed a rare, intriguing, and intoxicating mix of intellect, passion, and originality. With her at the helm, Odyssey House was a living, breathing, growing addiction treatment center. It was a dream job. Even as her methods became more autocratic and bizarre, and even as my dream started to turn into a nightmare, I remained an active participant in Odyssey's pioneering ‘can do’ community, which was reflective of the spirit of the late Nineteen-Sixties. I guess I was too infatuated at the time to see that, like the decade itself, everything must come to an end. Sometimes by crashing.

Epic Kids
David Blaze
Welcome to the weirdest day of my life. My name is Jake, and I'm just an average 6th grader that was invited to sit at the cool kids' lunch table. Now I've got to rescue a crazy girl who thinks she's a princess. Before I can do that, I'll be chased by an angry monkey, hunted by a hungry dinosaur, and abducted by an ugly alien (and that's not all)! I should mention that the princess thinks she's from another planet. Nothing weird about that. The only way I can make everything right is to find out what's behind the glowing door I've dreamed about every night of my life.
