About me

As you might have read already in the "Featured Article", The Structure of the Site, I intend to use the category "About me" as the place to describe my past in health terms- i.e. more or less describe the committed health sins of the past and the consequences it brought to me in terms of disorders and MAE (Major Adverse Events). These events I obviously survived sofar and I do NOT intend to let them happen to me again. To accomplish this objective, normally one has to do something and since I am not blessed with miracle self-healing capacities, hard work is definitely called for, which will be described in another category called- "My Actions". 

The content you are reading now, is "filed" in the category "Introductions to Content", so is basically an introduction to the articles concerning "myself".  In this category you will find an assessment of how I think genetics versus lifestyle influence a person´s health i.e. his well-being. A more technical write-up you will find in the section "What is ..?", where I will describe what "Epigenetics" is and how we can change our genetic fate. Here, I continue with an "Anamnesis" of my past - and present (?) disorders or better "Risk factors" as written up by an endocrinologist (based on my statements of course) and a description or how I see those events/disorders in hindsight now, after they are hardly an issue any longer. But again- you never know- health is nowadays very much a "Risk Management" game, where oneself can have a lot of influence . 

Below you will find summaries or introtext of the articles which appeared in the "About me" category, so you have a taste of what it is all about:

  • Genetic- vs Lifestyle Disorders
    Genetic- vs Lifestyle Disorders In this first article of the "About me" section,  you see a picture of a young boy on your left side, which-surprise, surprise- is me, when I was rather young. Purpose being,  I wanted to introduce you to my heritage and any genetic information available. Reason being,  one could very well see "vascular issues" generally as a genetic deficiency of a substancial part of mankind, since it is so widespread over the globe. However, I prefer NOT to do so, since I believe that any genetic inheritance i.e. any gene which is detrimental to the elasticity of arteries and vessels,

  • Anamnesis
    Anamnesis There are several meanings of "anamnesis". It has a meaning in the Christian faith, which I will ignore here, but there are two more- one as a philosophical meaning and the last one as the more well-known medical one.  The introducing image on the side, is an example of an anamnesis experience in the philosophical terms , where Tom Hanks as Joe Banks has his "insight" in the wonderful movie, Joe and the Volcano. Some more background on the philosophical meaning According to Plato, the most important forms of knowledge come not from instruction, but by a re-awakening of already existing dormant or latent knowledge. This is called anamnesis and it is the idea that humans possess knowledge from past incarnations and that learning consists of re-discovering that knowledge within us. Anamnesis comes in the form of "deja-vu" or "aha!" experiences -- insights, moments of unusual clarity, peak experiences, etc.…

  • Prelude to Fas´ Health Change-Processes
    In September 2012 a very common sigma carcinoma was removed from my colon with laparoscopic surgery by very capable hands in Ludwigshafen, Germany. The diagnosis of that thing being somewhere in my belly, I only received three weeks earlier and in between those two time points I visited the Deutsches Krebsforschungszentrum in Heidelberg, where I was included in a diagnostic PET-CT study, which ruled out any metastasis to the liver and other organs. 
    Those things went all so fast, that I hardly had any time to think, why this is happening and why is this happening to me and what am I going to do about it.  That time to think became available straight after being discharged from the hospital after a 10 days stay and after which I started a 3 weeks rehabilitation period in a specialized centre in a healthy forestry area in South-Germany (see article image). At that centre I could be often found in the fitness centre, walking around in the forest and at instruction meetings provided by dieticians and specialized excercise experts. I think I came home pretty much motivated to keep my weight at the than mark of 87 kg (192 lbs), thanks to my lost tumor and a week of starvation and live healthy from than on and  avoid discomfort related to health issues.
