1. Feed Your Nutrition IQ

Slice ePub July 14, 2014


ronically, just about everything I know about nutrition I learned well after graduating from medical school. The sad truth of the matter is that traditional Western medical training tends to gloss over the concept of disease prevention and place inordinate emphasis on the concept of disease treatment. Unfortunately, many treatments offer little more than symptomatic relief and the promise of a protracted demise. Although this approach is far from optimal, it enables pharmaceutical corporations (which fund the vast majority of medical research performed in North America) to maintain a steady expansion of their multibillion-dollar industry.

Regardless of the politics behind this paradox, in the real world, the only completely reliable way to cure disease is to stop it from happening in the first place. Thanks to the growing influence of Eastern medical traditions (combined with the demands for better doctor-patient communication from Internet-savvy, surprisingly knowledgeable patients), the Western medical establishment has been obliged to shift gears. These days, many American medical students are exposed to the basic tenets of nutrition before they take the Hippocratic oath.

Archetypal psychology's preferred approach to understanding the unconscious patterns at work in an organization is through an exploration or the organization's myths. Wendy Doniger O'Flaherty defines myth as follows:

A myth is a story that is sacred to and shared by a group of people who find their most important meanings in it; it is a story believed to have been composed in the past about an event in the past, or, more rarely, in the future, an event that continues to have meaning in the present because it is remembered; it is a story that is part of a larger group of stories.'

When we talk about myths we may fall into the trap of assuming that our listeners are giving the word the same meaning as we are. If our understanding of ancient myths is that they represent the deep truth about the universe as it was experienced by human beings before they learned the laws of logic, and that they still richly represent human experience, there can be some confusion when we are addressing people for whom it is axiomatic that myths are false. If we use the word in the popular sense of a story or belief that isn't true, we may not communicate with those with more romantic notions of myth.

La division de la corporation des artistes berlinois remonte à l’année 1891 avec la querelle autour des artistes norvégiens représentés dans les grandes expositions internationales, et en première ligne Edvard Munch (1863-1944), originaire du no man’s land artistique qu’était la

Norvège à cette époque.

Edvard Munch jouit très tôt d’une réputation de créateur d’avant-garde en Allemagne et en

Europe Centrale. Aujourd’hui, sa particularité et son génie sont reconnus en Europe et dans le monde entier. Ses travaux les plus connus datent des années 1890. En automne 1889, une grande exposition individuelle des œuvres que Munch avait créées durant son premier séjour

à Paris eut lieu à Christiania (l’Oslo actuel), grâce à laquelle l’état lui accorda une bourse d’artiste pour les trois années suivantes.

Naturellement, Paris était à nouveau sa destination car il y fut l’élève de Léon Bonnat

(1833-1922) pendant un court moment. Mais les impulsions les plus importantes venaient de la vie artistique de la ville. Ici, les grandes lignes oscillantes et les superficies unies en couleurs prédominaient, une simplification et une stylisation des motifs proches de Paul Gauguin
