The reception and transformation of homeopathy in Japan

Nonami, Hiroko Yuri January 2016 (has links)
This thesis examines from a medical anthropological viewpoint how the practice of the newly imported complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) has been transplanted, received and transformed in Japan. More specifically, I focus on homeopathy, which was introduced into Japan in the late 1990s. To address the research question, I focus on the practice of homeopathy from the anthropological viewpoint. The adoption of any new form of medicine is influenced by the prevailing medical, social and cultural context. So, how and why was homeopathy introduced into Japan the late 1990s? I explore this question by focusing on three aspects of the reception of homeopathy in Japan: (1) the institutionalisation of the homeopathy, including the formation of associations of practitioners and homeopathic colleges; (2) the translation of the theory and practice of homeopathy by the practitioners into a culturally acceptable form; (3) the utilisation and consumption of homeopathy by the patients, their families and self-prescribers. Over eighteen months of fieldwork in Japan led me to focus on these three elements of homeopathic practice. Regarding the theoretical framework, this mainly explores medical pluralism and the health care system in Japan from an anthropological perspective, and the globalisation and transmission of medicine. I argue that the success of homeopathy in Japan was largely thanks to the transmission strategies set by the founders of the colleges for lay homeopaths. Mothers in particular, concerned by worries over family health care, were drawn by this approach. Furthermore I also argue that this group not only be' self-help groups, creating thereby a strong tie with the lay homeopaths. I argue that mothers gained a sense of the empowerment through homeopathy. Within the Japanese health care system it was the popular sector that received and developed homeopathy.

The effect of the driver resonator frequency treatment (385 Khertz) on candida albicans' cell viability and recovery in the presence and absence of nutrients

Jansen van Vuuren, Audrey 31 March 2010 (has links)
M. Tech. / The Driver Resonator, manufactured by Makulu Mutis (Closed Corporation), is a registered electro-medical device used in practise by a number of medical and allied health professionals. The Driver Resonator was developed to assist with energy flow regulation, the elimination and/or reduction of viruses, bacteria and other pathogens, detoxification and pain management by means of an electrical impulse to the human body. There is currently no evidence available to determine the direct effect, if any, of the frequencies of the Driver Resonator on specific pathogens. A growth curve was constructed to determine the three different phases of growth for Candida albicans. Using the data obtained from the growth curve, C. albicans’ cells were harvested during the three selected growth phases and treated with the Driver Resonator at a prescribed frequency of 385 kHertz. The cells were treated consecutively for ten minutes at time intervals of 0, 2 and 4 hours and samples taken after each treatment to determine the amount of viable cells after treatment. Cells were treated in the presence of nutrients (growth media) and in the absence of nutrients (phosphate buffered saline) to investigate the possible effect the nutrients might have on the cells ability to recover after treatment. All experiments were performed in triplicate and included a set of untreated cells (positive control) to evaluate the effect of treatment. From the results it can be deduced that the Driver Resonator had no effect on C. albicans’ cell viability and recovery in the absence or presence of nutrients when cells are in the mid-exponential, late-exponential and stationary phases of growth.
