Nymphomaniac is a 2013 European two-part art film written and directed by Lars von Trier. Nymphomaniac is the third and final installment in von Trier’s unofficially titled “Depression Trilogy.” On a snowy evening, middle-aged bachelor Seligman (Stellan Skarsgård) finds self-diagnosed nymphomaniac Joe (Charlotte Gainsbourg) beaten up and lying in the alleyway behind his apartment. He takes her back to his home and, over tea, listens intently as Joe recounts the story of her libidinous
(5,4,3,2,1) During the month of July, a (quite) informal poll was taken via phone, email and text as to newmedicineonline.com‘s most popular blogs. A big thank you to all that participated. The results came in as follows … Leon Festinger’s very happy right now. As a broad brushstroke – the immune system is essentially a weaving in and out of conflict activity and conflict resolution. The concept of
Over the past few years, a restructuring of our session format has been underway – to include more practical application and focus on the sharing of perspectives, observations and insights. To present German New Medicine in a way that is tangible, relevant and of course … far from boring! Let’s face it – one can only take so much endoderm, mesoderm and ectoderm in one sitting. I can’t take full credit for this “life
While similar to the equivalent of ‘bless you’ in English – I was told the exact meaning of gesundheit was closer to ‘good health to you’. Whether it be gesundheit, prosit, salute, cok yasa, zay gezunt or bless you – the acknowledgement will most assuredly follow a sneeze. Sneezing and seasonal allergies (any allergies really) – are all about subtle reminders (a kind of subconscious deja vu) of an earlier biological conflict that contribute to
Jumping Jack Flash. Due to my workload this week, ‘Jumping Jack Flash’ will be (relatively) brief. I met with a client last month with a quite embarrassing problem … flatulence. Despite the embarrassing nature of flatulence – we’ll try and introduce some levity to the subject. The above picture was originally intended to accompany the hemorrhoid blog but it ultimately lost out to the ‘pushing the limits of decorum’ Chocolate Altoids. ;’)
“A rose by any other name would smell as sweet” is a popular reference to William Shakespeare’s play Romeo and Juliet, in which Juliet seems to argue that it does not matter that Romeo is from her family’s rival house of Montague.” The reference is often used to imply that the names of things do not affect what they really are.

A very special thank you to the The International Chiropractic Pediatric Association’s Pathways to Family Wellness Magazine for helping us introduce German New Medicine to a broader readership.
The Kiss. Note the flowing hair presented in gold leaf as found in The Kiss, by Austrian Symbolist painter Gustav Klimt. There is a Dutch saying, “Ik hou zoveel van haar, daarom laat ik het groeien” – which loosely translates “I love her so much, so I grow it.” Hair, since the beginning of time has been associated with Power (Samson.) Beauty (Roseanne Roseannadanna ;’) and Love (Brett Kissel.) In the modern

Cognitive Dissonance: The Immune System Construct. In the field of psychology, cognitive dissonance is the mental discomfort (psychological stress) experienced by a person who simultaneously holds two or more contradictory beliefs, ideas or values. The occurrence of cognitive dissonance occurs when confronted with new information that contradicts said beliefs, ideals and values. In A Theory of Cognitive Dissonance (1957), Leon Festinger proposed that human beings strive for internal psychological consistency in order to
