Book excerpt: Twenty-five-year-old Holocaust survivor Miklós is being shipped from the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp to Gotland, Sweden, to receive treatment at the Larbro Hospital. Here he is sentenced to death again: he is diagnosed with tuberculosis and his doctors inform him that he has six months to live. But Miklós decides to wage war on his own fate: he writes 117 letters to 117 Hungarian girls, all of whom are being treated in the Swedish camps, with the aim of eventually choosing a wife from among them. Two hundred kilometres away, in another Swedish rehabilitation camp, nineteen-year-old Lili receives Miklós's letter. Since she is bedridden for three weeks due to a serious kidney problem, out of boredom -- and curiosity -- she decides to write back. The slightly formal exchange of letters becomes increasingly intimate. When the two finally manage to meet, they fall in love and are determined to marry, despite the odds that are against them. Based on the original letters written by Miklós and Lili (ninety-six altogether), Fever at Dawn is a tale of passion, striving, and betrayal; true and false friendships; doubt and faith; and the redeeming power of love.

Book excerpt: In Dawn Light: On the Chesapeake young Sean O'Connell traveled from Maryland to England with his mother. Shortly after their arrival, his mother died and he was sent to Ireland to be raised by a spinster aunt. As a young man, Sean received a letter with startling news from his aunt in Colonial America. He journeyed from Dublin to the New World to discover that he had become owner of his family's manor, Dawn Light. In Maryland, Sean struggled with his new role as master of the manor and the cultural clashes and brutality of slavery. Nevertheless, God also provided true friendships and the love of a woman, Julia Wells. With their wedding just a few weeks away, images of their bright future filled the hearts of Julia and Sean. However, dreams that were being fulfilled as well as those yet to be realized--begin to unravel. God allows us to have only glimpses of the future. For, indeed, bright days were to lie ahead for Sean and Julia--but those days would also bring some Dark Shadows at Dawn Light. Harv Nowland was prompted to write the first book, Dawn Light: On the Chesapeake (Xulon Press 2007 ISBN 9781604770957), when he discovered several headstones bearing his family name in a small cemetery in North East, Maryland, that dated back to the 1600s. Harv and his wife were missionaries in Peru and served churches in Texas, Georgia and Pennsylvania as senior pastor. He was senior staff writer with Larry Burkett and Christian Financial Concepts (later Crown Financial Ministries). Now a freelance writer, Harv contributes to several ministries, including Right From the Heart, Baptist Press, Crown Financial Ministries and Focus on the Family. Parents of two and grandparents of six, he and his wife Bobbie live in Gainesville, Georgia.

Download or read book Warm Disease Theory Wen Bing Xue written by Wang Bing and published by Paradigm Publications. This book was released on 2003 with total page 300 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: In Chinese medicine there are four classics that all serious students are required to study. These include the Classic of Internal Medicine (Nei Jing), Treatise on Cold Damage (Shang Han Lun), Synopsis of the Golden Chamber (Jin Kui Yao Lue), and "Warm Disease Theory (Wen Bing Xue). Warm Disease Theory" is the most modern of the four classics. Although referred to as a classic, in this context, the term "classic" means an area of classical study rather than a single classical text. Even though there are numerous references to warm diseases in very ancient texts, warm disease was not developed as an independent system until the Qing dynasty. There were several schools of warm disease, dating from the Ming and Qing dynasties, but until the time this text was written there had never been an attempt to integrate their ideas into an overview. The five medical experts who most significantly influenced the development of Warm Disease theory were Wu You Ke, Ye Tian Shi, Xue Sheng Bai, Wu Ju Tong, and Wang Meng Ying. The first of these, Wu You Ke, lived in the Ming dynasty. He put forward the theory of pestilence qi (li qi) which explained the role of certain infectious factors in the etiology of communicable diseases. His was the first theory to assert that warm pathogens enter the body through the mouth and nose. He published these ideas in his "Treatise on Acute Epidemic Warmth (Wen Yi Lun)." The other four medical experts all lived and wrote during the Qing dynasty. Dr Ye Tian Shi introduced the theory that warm diseases develop and transmit through four aspects, namely the defense, qi, construction, and blood aspects. His lectures and teachings were edited by his disciples and published in the "Treatise on Warm Heat (Wen Re Lun)". Xue Sheng Bai concentrated on discussing damp-heat disease factors. He clearly explained that damp-heat usually occurs from a combination of external yang brightness and internal greater yin factors affecting each other. He published his ideas in his "Detailed Analysis of Damp-Heat (Shi Re Tiao Bian). " Dr Wu Ju Tong expanded on the ideas of Dr Ye Tian Shi by developing a system of differential diagnosis based on the pathological changes in the triple burner. He summarized his findings and published them in his "Detailed Analysis of Warm Diseases (Wen Bing Tiao Bian)." Dr Wang Meng Ying developed insights on the cause of warm fevers, their symptoms, and their treatment methods, by applying the theories set down in the "Classic of Internal Medicine and Treatise on Cold Damage" to the views of his renowned contemporaries. He published his ideas in several books, the most important of which is "Warm Disease Latitudes and Longitudes (Wen Re Jing Wei). "However, even these great Ming and Qing dynasty doctors of warm disease, on whose works this text is based, only had partial insights; their views were relatively fragmentary. "Warm Disease Theory" is the first text to integrate the views of every school, the first to undertake a comprehensive discussion of the foundations of warm disease theory and the clinical treatment of warm diseases. It is in fact such a valuable source of theoretical and therapeutic information that it is often considered a modern classic.The text is arranged in two sections. The first introduces all the basic information about warm disease, including its history, disease causes, pattern identification, and general diagnostic and treatment methods. The second section devotes a separate chapter to each of the different warm diseases. It deals with the disease factors, clinical manifestations, pulses, and treatments in the warm diseases of the four seasons including wind warmth, spring warmth, summerheat warmth, damp warmth, latent summerheat warmth, autumn dryness, and warm toxins. In each of these warm diseases, the disease concepts, etiologies, pathologies, main points of diagnosis and treatment policies are discussed first, then the patterns and treatments of their characteristic disease transformations are explained.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Its 1634 and a ship of Puritans struggles through a storm on its way to Boston. Among them are John Lee, an ancestor of two future princes of England, and Grace Newell, both 13-year-old wards of William Westwood, their congregation’s lawyer. During the storm, John sees 19-year-old Richard Hawkes, a petty thief and murderer, steal their church’s gold inlaid silver chalice. The next day, when the chalice is missing, Richard threatens to kill Grace unless John swears to conceal the theft. John agrees if Richard returns the chalice. With few options, Richard agrees. Over the next 40 years, challenges and opportunities present themselves amidst Indian wars and witchcraft trials. Richard lies, steals, and murders his way to fortune and influence, while John becomes a soldier, civic leader, and Indian teacher. Each attracts followers, while both compete for the affection of the same woman. John’s guilt over his oath grows as he blames himself for unleashing Richard’s evil upon his community. At the same time, he believes breaking his oath would be a great sin. Nesehegan, one of John’s Indian students, tells John how he resolved his conflict between loyalty to his tribe and his belief in God. Months later, Richard calls John as a witness at Richard’s murder trial. Confronted with a question he can’t answer without breaking either his oath to God or his oath to the court, John remembers Nesehegan’s story.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Tell Me Why My Children Died tells the gripping story of indigenous leaders' efforts to identify a strange disease that killed thirty-two children and six young adults in a Venezuelan rain forest between 2007 and 2008. In this pathbreaking book, Charles L. Briggs and Clara Mantini-Briggs relay the nightmarish and difficult experiences of doctors, patients, parents, local leaders, healers, and epidemiologists; detail how journalists first created a smoke screen, then projected the epidemic worldwide; discuss the Chávez government's hesitant and sometimes ambivalent reactions; and narrate the eventual diagnosis of bat-transmitted rabies. The book provides a new framework for analyzing how the uneven distribution of rights to produce and circulate knowledge about health are wedded at the hip with health inequities. By recounting residents' quest to learn why their children died and documenting their creative approaches to democratizing health, the authors open up new ways to address some of global health's most intractable problems.

Thinker, healer, and explorer of he seemingly supernatural, no mystery can stand for long against Darwin's enlightened analysis. And there are more mysteries than history records... For Erasmus Darwin's world is filled with oddities that most cannot believe: from unknown beings lurking just outside the boundaries of civilization, to mysterious deaths that give rise to fears of malevolent sorcery. And when the renowned Dr Darwin is called upon to heal a man dying of an ailment that seems impossible, he has no idea that it is the beginning of a quest that will lead him to the darkest corners of Europe, and an encounter with the most famous inhabitant of a certain Scottish loch...
