History to Present: Philosophical Examination Stays Alive

Mankind are naturally curious souls. It is man’s instinct to find reasons for universal mysteries and to probe into the purpose of life and existence. Because of this, philosophy is a pertinent subject for mankind. From Ancient Babylon, perhaps even before that, humans have been investigating philosophy so that they can decode the logic behind a variety of elements of life. From exploring questions about values to establishing the nature of human beings, philosophy is an all engaging topic and has countless challenging branches. It is a precious discipline which assesses significant complications regarding life, knowledge and logic.

Philosophy is a really excellent mind expanding field to take part in. As opposed to conventional opinions, you don’t require a higher education degree or a pile of literature on philosophy to build an understanding of philosophical ideas. The truth is, philosophy has a major part in each and every human beings lifestyle. Women and men produce individual philosophies everyday to enrich their own existence. Participating in an on-line philosophy forum is a good way of conveying your own insights and also gaining knowledge from other individuals. Frequently knowledge can be merged and brand new philosophies and observations on reality can be acquired when different men and women examine the same genre together.

In all the times prior to our current technological generation, men and women engaged in deliberating philosophical issues through real time, oral interactions against each other. Essays and journals would be compiled followed by debate seminars. Since the advancements made on the world wide web in the last two decades, the necessity of group meetings has lessened dramatically and currently men and women are equipped to easily explore any subject they want on philosophical forum groups. You don’t need to be a higher education graduate student to talk about the heavy topics of existence and the universe. Regular people can discuss and assess philosophical concepts with online colleagues at any time when they are free to.

A particularly enticing part of philosophy is the fact that many so many well known and age old philosophical problems have not yet been answered. While there are numerous hypotheses and opinions, they are almost never universally accepted as being the fundamental resolutions to philosophical conundrums. The most intensely reviewed questions on philosophy forum boards are those that link to the reason for one’s life. Questions similar to “why am I alive?” or “just what is the purpose of existence?” always fascinate large quantities of human beings. People have a hankering for wanting to keep in mind more about mankind in order to attain a fuller, more significant life experience. Philosophy provides an avenue where people can explore their creative ideas aided by the application of logic and reasoning to discover unidentified truths.

The chance of individual growth is abundant with regard to exploring philosophy. Entering a conversation with a free and logical mentality can bring about highly effective chances to encounter development and growth. People who get involved in debates on philosophy forum groups are likely to encounter fresh revelations about life and mankind which then enhances the condition of their own lives. It could be argued that the objective of philosophy is in fact to improve mankinds experience and contentment in life. Our present day society and the computer industry has empowered men and women to have the capacity to quickly link with one another though the click of a switch. Most people internet access which means the opportunity to examine philosophy with women and men is enormous. Nearly all web based conversation communities are free to participate in and already contain a large number of established conversations that anyone can jump into and start exploring their minds. With countless unanswered debates, you can be certain to discover something to speculate when it comes to philosophy.

Cancer Research Presented at Naturopathic Oncology Conference

I recently attended the Oncology Association of Naturopathic Physician’s 2012 Convention (OncANP) in Carefree, Arizona, where I presented breakthrough research to over 300 integrative Naturopathic oncologists. My lecture was on Galectin-3 as a new culprit biomarker for cancer and numerous life-threatening diseases. I also shared research on the critical role of Modified Citrus Pectin (MCP) as the foremost Galectin-3 blocker and an important nutritional adjunct for supporting long term health.

OncANP is a naturopathic organization whose members specialize in the treatment of cancer. A major focus of the association is to provide members with advanced training in the rapidly expanding field of naturopathic oncology, in order to improve quality of care and patient outcome.

It’s truly rewarding to share cutting edge research with the medical community, demonstrating Galectin-3′s role as a chronic disease culprit, and Modified Citrus Pectin’s ability to promote health and prevent disease. Modified Citrus Pectin offers a number of remarkable health benefits, which include binding and blocking excess Galectin-3 molecules throughout the body.

Role of Galectin-3 Molecules
Galectin-3 is produced naturally in the body, but new research proves that elevated levels can lead to serious health conditions like heart disease, chronic inflammation, fibrosis, metastatic cancer and organ failure. In cancer, Galectin-3 promotes tumor growth and metastasis by acting as a sticky cell surface protein allowing malignant cells to aggregate, proliferate, attract blood vessel formation and metastasize.

By binding to and blocking excess Galectin-3 molecules, Modified Citrus Pectin disables this rogue protein. In this way, Modified Citrus Pectin prevents Galectin-3 from fueling cancer and wreaking havoc throughout the body on cells, tissues and organs.

A new blood test that measures circulating levels of Galectin-3 as a risk factor in progressive heart failure is now approved by the FDA and covered by most health insurance. This test can also be used by practitioners help to determine risks of damage in other organs, including the liver, lungs, brain, kidneys, and others, as well as risk and progression of metastatic cancer.

MCP for Detoxification and Immunity
New peer-reviewed studies also demonstrate the ability of Modified Citrus Pectin to significantly enhance immune function, particularly cytotoxicity against cancer cells. Published clinical research demonstrates Modified Citrus Pectin also reduces dangerous heavy metals in the body. MCP is proven to remove lead, mercury, arsenic, and cadmium, without lowering levels of essential minerals. (When toxic body burden is elevated, I recommend a gentle, yet highly effective heavy metal detoxification program using Modified Citrus Pectin together with an in-depth phase two detox formula, which includes sulfured botanicals, antioxidants and nutrients to support the deeper removal of toxins from tissues and organs.)

Synergistic Effects of MCP with Poly-Botanical Formulas
Groundbreaking new research also demonstrates that Modified Citrus Pectin works synergistically to inhibit aggressive cancer cell behavior, when combined with two of my advanced poly-botanical formulas: one for breast health and one for prostate health. Both the breast formula and the prostate formula have been previously researched, with multiple published studies demonstrating their abilities to slow cancer growth and metastasis without side effects. This latest in vitro synergistic study has been accepted for publication in the journal, Integrative Cancer Therapies and was shared during my lecture. The findings are extremely promising, showing that MCP in combination with either the breast or prostate formula, significantly further inhibits the metastatic processes of adhesion and migration of breast and prostate cancer cells, in a dose-dependent manner.

Honokiol for Cancer, Antioxidant and Anxiety Support
I also shared research on the powerful botanical compound, Honokiol. A large body of published data shows that Honokiol offers multiple health benefits, predominantly anti-cancer, anti-oxidant, neuroprotective and anti-anxiety effects. Honokiol is extracted from the bark of the Magnolia officinalis tree and is safe to use with conventional cancer therapies. Research demonstrates that Honokiol actually works synergistically with some conventional cancer therapies. It also is also shown to work synergistically with Modified Citrus Pectin for increased anti-cancer support.

The field of integrative cancer care continues to expand with cutting edge research breakthroughs and therapeutic advancements. The groundbreaking data that I shared at the 2012 OncANP event, and during other integrative medical conferences, continues to establish Modified Citrus Pectin as an important adjunct in the prevention and treatment of many serious health conditions, for which current available therapies may be limited at best.

5 Tip-Offs Your Counterpart is a Better Trained Negotiator Than You Are!

Nobody likes to be snookered, to be taken advantage of, and this especially so when we’re negotiating.

If we’re hoodwinked or conned when dollars and cents and promotions and salaries are at stake, it’s especially painful.

Before you rush off to that next job interview or performance evaluation, or you race to bargain for that new car or enticing house, open your eyes and take the measure of the people you’re negotiating with.

It may save you money, embarrassment, and even your career!

Here are 5 tip-offs that they may be more skilled at the game than you are:

(1) IS HE TOO DUMB TO BE TRUE? That car dealer that seems to be the village idiot may be simply playing Lt. Columbo with you. You remember him, the TV detective who mumbled and bumbled his way to solving case after case, ensnaring the most evil and, get this, the cockiest and most over-confident bad guys in the world! Playing the bozo is a smart move, according to a consensus of negotiating pro’s. By asking questions and appearing un-slick, you gain several advantages, not the last of which is you listen more than you talk, you fact-find, uncover their negotiating ranges, and you induce the other party to make damaging disclosures while avoiding the perils of blabbing. There was only one job interview where it paid for me to appear smart, and that was when I sought college teaching positions. So, exceptions exist, but they’re rare.

(2) IS SHE THE NICEST PERSON YOU’VE MET IN MONTHS?

Nice people are disarming. They offer us a glass of water, hold doors open for us, smile, make pleasant eye contact, compliment our attire, and put us at ease. And in doing so, they get far more from us, through tit-for-tat, our desire to reciprocate, than they would ever extract through bullying. The “hard negotiator” exists, the one who seems to put his bulldog personality before all else. But he isn’t nearly as effective, in most cases, as that flawlessly polite and congenial person that seems to REALLY LIKE US! Beware of them.

(3) DOES SHE CONFESS THAT SHE HAS LIMITED AUTHORITY?

This is one of the oldest gambits in the book. If I have limited authority, I can’t seal a deal all by myself, which means if you can, what you promise is binding, but what I “think I might be able to do,” is always tentative. This means you make concessions without a stop-loss, and I haven’t conceded a thing. I’ll leave the table with all of my options open, always promising to “see what I can do,” but only getting final approval much later on, after you have caved in on point after point.

(4) LIKE A GREAT FOOTBALL COACH, DOES HE KNOW HOW TO PLAY THE CLOCK?

Effective negotiators seem to speed up and slow down the pace of the game, nearly at will. When a sense of urgency suits them, you feel pressure to answer their questions, provide commitments, and make concessions on the spot. When they find it valuable to slow the pace, to heighten your frustration and to tweak your need for quick closure, suddenly, they have to take a break or are called into another meeting or have to take a call and get back to you later. The Master of the Clock is typically a negotiation master, as well.

(5) JUST WHEN YOU THINK YOU HAVE A DEAL, DOES SHE NEED JUST ONE SMALL FAVOR OR ADDITIONAL ITEM?

A “nibble” is a tiny morsel that your counterpart asks for just as, or even some time after you think your terms have been agreed upon and are final. The smart buyer says to the car dealer, “Of course, you’re going to make sure to give me a full tank of gas, aren’t you?” Depending on the model, that can be a $50 nibble, or much more, if you’re buying a Winnebago. Is any sane seller going to refuse, to watch his commission scamper away over a measly few dollars? Yes, some will, who resent nibblers, but most won’t.

Looking at the bright side, now you know five of the most typical negotiating gambits, and of course, you can use them too, when you encounter someone with even LESS training!
