Sleep paralysis (SP) is a benign, transient episode of immobility and it lasts a few seconds to a few minutes. It can occur while falling asleep or on awakening. It is a condition of unknown etiology and all the skeletal muscles are almost ‘paralyzed’. It leads to an inability to speak or move but individual remains conscious. This review summarizes the existential clinical literature on sleep paralysis most relevant to practitioners; also summarizes the many historical and artistic manifestations of SP in different cultures. It also throws light on the available Arabic literature and others as per the aim of the review. For this review, literature search using engines was carried out, and review papers and original research articles were analyzed. We will start with a review which summarizes the collection of symptoms, prevalence rate, risk factors and etiological theories, characteristics and classification of the SP over the past years up to the present time, also the management in the form of psychotherapy and pharmacotherapy as well as the cultural significances in different countries. SP plays an important role in the genesis and maintenance of many supernatural beliefs such as nocturnal alien abductions, demonic and ghost attacks in individuals with intact reality testing.

Highlights:

Real-world study is valuable for traditional Chinese medicine. However, there are no gold standards of statistical approaches for analyzing data from real-world study of traditional Chinese medicine. In the present study, we discussed why and when to use Bayesian analysis and the challenge in the real-world study of traditional Chinese medicine.

Abstract

Real-world study is valuable for traditional Chinese medicine. However, there are no gold standards of statistical approaches for analyzing data from real-world study of traditional Chinese medicine. With the development of computer technology, researchers have increasingly paid attention to Bayesian statistics in the biomedical field. In present study, real-world study and Bayesian statistics were introduced. It was discussed that why and when to use Bayesian analysis and the challenge in the real-world study of traditional Chinese medicine.

Traditional Medicine Research    2018, 3 (2): 82-94.   https://doi.org/10.12032/TMR201810067
Abstract ( 958 HTML PDF (1144KB) ( 880 )  

Highlights

This study provides a basis for further study on molecular mechanisms of anti-inflammatory, phlegm-expelling, cough- and pain-relieving activities of Gancao (Radix Glycyrrhizae).

Editor’s Summary

Gancao (Radix Glycyrrhizae) was first recorded in Shennongbencaojing, which was published in the third century A.D. (Han Dynasty of China).

Abstract

Objective: To accumulate data from studies on the compounds identified from Gancao (Radix Glycyrrhizae, GC), and then systematically summarize and classify these compounds according to their structural characteristics. Methods: Five databases (CNKI, VIP, Wanfang data, CBM, and Pubmed) were used to search for studies on the chemical structure of compounds from GC. The retrieval time of the respective databases was from their inception to March 2016. According to the inclusion and exclusion criteria, the papers were carefully screened, and the data were extracted. Results: A total of 653 compounds from GC were collated from 252 articles, including flavonols (n = 201) belonging to 10 subgroups, terpenes and saponins (n = 167), coumarins (n = 30) belonging to 3 subgroups, aliphatics (n = 206), aromatics (n = 35), and others (n = 14). The flavones, represented by liquiritin and liquiritigenin, were the most reported compounds isolated from GC, followed by terpenes and saponins such as glycyrrhizic acid and glycyrrhetinic acid. Conclusion: The more than 600 natural compounds in GC may be responsible for GC’s anti-inflammatory, phlegm-expelling, cough- and pain-relieving activities.

Highlights: In this paper, various factors related to Hashimoto’s thyroiditis and thyroid cancer, especially papillary thyroid cancer, morbidity and lymph node metastasis, are reviewed concerning recent literature.

Editor’s Summary: In recent decades, it is very high for the incidence of HT and the thyroid cancer rate. This article is more likely that autoimmune thyroid inflammation such as HT is carcinogenic, and thyroid dysfunction related to HT may also promote tumor growth induced by stimulating TSH receptor.

Abstract: In recent years, the incidence of Hashimoto’s thyroiditis and thyroid cancer has shown a rapid growth trend. These two diseases have severely affected the public health. Many epidemiological studies have shown that thyroid cancer is often associated with Hashimoto’s thyroiditis. Hashimoto’s thyroiditis may promote the occurrence of thyroid cancer, as well as affecting the progression of the tumor, lymph node metastasis, and even the prognosis of patients. In this paper, the relationship between Hashimoto’s thyroiditis and thyroid cancer and the pathogenesis of thyroid cancer are reviewed regarding molecular mechanism, clinical pathology, and serology.

Abstract ( 850 HTML PDF (483KB) ( 796 )  

Highlights:

This review implies that the expenditure on TM/CAM and its economic impact vary worldwide. Unfortunately, direct comparison of expenditures is limited due to the differences in the definitions of TM/CAM, inclusion of various forms of TM/CAM, use of different names and categorization, as well as differences in reported currencies and time periods in which data were collected. Despite this limitation this review still provides valuable insight into the economic impact of TM/CAM worldwide.

Abstract

The aim of this literature review was to summarize available findings from publications that reported expenditure on traditional/complementary and alternative medicine (TM/CAM) within a representative general population sample of a nation or a defined geographical area. A total of 24 publications met the inclusion criteria and were included in the review. The expenditure on TM/CAM varies worldwide, but direct comparison of the findings of publications included in this review is limited due to the differences in the definitions of TM/CAM, inclusion of various forms of TM/CAM, use of different names and categorization, as well as differences in reported currencies and time periods in which data were collected. Data about the expenditure on TM/CAM in most countries throughout the world are scarce. Further national studies should be conducted in order to provide up-to-date assessment of the TM/CAM related expenditure patterns and use. Uniform nomenclature, definition of TM/CAM and standardized instruments would provide basis for comparability of data of studies conducted in various regions and time periods.

The mainstay of type 2 diabetes treatment used to be blood glucose control in order to prevent or delay the development of various diabetic complications. On September 1, 2018, one of our patients was diagnosed with several serious illnesses: type 2 diabetes, 3 degrees of obesity, arterial hypertension, peripheral vascular atherosclerosis of the lower extremities with swelling of the shins and feet, fatty hepatosis and metabolic syndrome since June 2019. The patient was restricted in movement due to excessive body weight, shortness of breath and joint pain. Conventional medical methods did not work well for him, so the prognosis is very poor. In this case, we used a new frequency-code therapy which could transmit the signal into the patient's brain by the method of frequency code influence to cure diabetes and associated diseases, restore the patient's body and improve his living quality. According to our forecasts in September 2018 the treatment of acquired diseases and the restoration of the patient's body to a viable level, with the help of our technology, may take more a year. Carrying out step-by-step noninvasive treatment by the method of frequency-code influence on the patient's brain we received positive results at each stage of treatment which together gave a complex positive result in ridding the patient of acquired diseases and restoring his body to the level of active life-activity without restrictions. Now the patient does not follow a diet and enjoys physical activity. No side effects were observed. The human body is unique, even in adulthood, the protective functions of the body are able to defeat the most complex diseases without damage to the body. To do this need to activate the "sleeping protective mechanism" of the body or translate the "healthy memory of the brain" in the period of active resistance to premature age-related diseases.
