I have been using your techniques recently and now my partner has told me that the difference is incredible. But what has amazed me the most is how much better and more energetic I now feel after a good night's sleep! Thank you so much! ★★★

  • I have suffered from a widening array of allergies and constant cravings for sugar and bread. I was miserable most of the time while taking allergy medication. After following your step-by-step directions for 6 weeks, I am recovering! I am now, as I write this lines, almost symptom free. I recommend anyone who is affected by allergy caused directly or indirectly by candida yeast infection to read your book. It is so easy to read (even for me - English is not my native language) and to apply. I cannot thank you enough for your counseling service and for the knowledge and health you have brought into my life. ♣♣♣

  • About 2 years ago, I developed a severe case of vaginal yeast infection that would not let up. The itching, burning and swelling of my labia were simply unbearable. I have purchased several over-the-counter treatments, including Monistat cream to subside the symptoms. While it worked initially, eventually things wore off and left me with an even worse infection than before. The same goes for the antibiotics I took with the advice of my doctor. I felt horrible. After doing some research online, I guessed I had a yeast infection and purchased your program. The results were almost instantaneous. In less than 7 hours, I felt a tremendous relief. Two weeks later and I became completely free from the unbearable vaginal itching, burning, swelling and discharge. Using your methods, I have kept my chronic yeast infection at bay ever since. No more drugs or OTC�s for me. ▲▲▲

  115. 115. Stanford • At Stanford Lederberg continued to lead research in bacterial genetics. • He also pursed opportunities his new position provided to relate genetics to the wider context of human health and biology.wider context of human health and biology. • He helped institute an undergraduate human biology curriculum, and launched investigations into the genetic and neurological basis of mental retardation as director of Stanford's Joseph P. Kennedy Jr. Laboratories for Molecular Medicine.
  116. 116. От Спутника к Викингам • His fame as a Nobel laureate made it possible for him to broaden his field of scientific interests even further. • The launch of the Soviet Sputnik satellite in 1957 prompted him to consider the biological implications and hazards of space exploration. • Lederberg gained a place for biologists in the burgeoning U.S. space program when he publicly warned against the dangers ofspace program when he publicly warned against the dangers of contamination of the moon and of other planets by spacecraft carrying microbes from earth. • He explored the possibility of extraterrestrial life as a member of National Academy of Sciences' Space Science Board from 1958 to 1974, and helped develop instruments to detect potential traces of microbes on Mars as part of the National Aeronautic and Space Administration's 1975 Viking mission to the planet.
  117. 117. От экзобиологии к экспертным системам • Lederberg's role in constructing fully automated laboratory equipment for research in space led him in turn to embark on another new pursuit: expanding the role of computers in scientific research. • In collaboration with the chairman of Stanford's computer science department, Edward Feigenbaum,computer science department, Edward Feigenbaum, Lederberg in the 1960s developed DENDRAL, a computer program designed to generate hypotheses about the atomic composition of unknown chemical compounds from spectrometric and other laboratory data through Artificial Intelligence. • It was the first expert system for specialized use in science.

  128. 128. 1994 - Gulf War syndrome • 1994 – Lederberg is a Heads Defense Department Task Force on Persian Gulf War Health Effects, which concludes that there is insufficient epidemiological evidence for a coherent Gulf War "syndrome“. • Gulf War syndrome (GWS) or Gulf War illness (GWI) is the name given to an illness with symptoms including increases in the rate of immune system disorders and birth defects, reported by combat veterans of the 1991 Gulf War. • It has not always been clear whether these symptoms were related to Gulf War Gulf War service. • Symptoms attributed to this syndrome have been wide-ranging, including chronic fatigue, loss of muscle control, migraines and other headaches, dizziness and loss of balance, memory problems, muscle and joint pain, indigestion, skin problems, and shortness of breath. • U.S. Gulf War veterans have experienced mortality rates exceeding those of U.S. Vietnam veterans. • Brain cancer deaths, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (commonly known as Lou Gehrig's disease) and fibromyalgia are now recognized by the Defense and Veterans Affairs departments as potentially connected to service during the Persian Gulf War.
