This thread is about a gentleman who has expanded the boundaries of science/medicine. I brought him up in a thread started by Paul about ways to micro warm ourselves/our immediate personal space/climate in order to save electrical energy.


I thought that many would be interested in the other ways he has affected science/medicine. He shows that people can do things internally that medicine always believed were not possible.

If I have put it in the wrong section or if this isn't an appropriate topic for Permies, feel free to dispatch it without notification.

I'll let you decide for yourselves. Anyone that can climb to 23,000 feet on Mt Everest in shorts and open toed shoes/sandals is doing something right.

He was injected with bacterial endotoxin and he was able to produce immediate immunity to these. These studies have been done in Europe and in the USA - National Academy of Sciences of the USA.

Voluntary activation of the sympathetic nervous system and attenuation of the innate immune response in humans


"Hitherto, both the autonomic nervous system and innate immune system were regarded as systems that cannot be voluntarily influenced. The present study demonstrates that, through practicing techniques learned in a short-term training program, the sympathetic nervous system and immune system can indeed be voluntarily influenced. Healthy volunteers practicing the learned techniques exhibited profound increases in the release of epinephrine, which in turn led to increased production of anti-inflammatory mediators and subsequent dampening of the proinflammatory cytokine response elicited by intravenous administration of bacterial endotoxin."


It's a pleasure to see superheros taking such an interest in science. And this tiny ad:
