“It is the function of science to discover the existence of a general reign of order in nature and to find the causes governing this order. And this refers in equal measure to the relations of man-social and political-and to the entire universe as a whole.”--Dmitri Mendeleev
“It must be considered that there is nothing more difficult to carry out nor more doubtful of success nor more dangerous to handle than to initiate a new order of things; for the reformer has enemies in all those who profit by the old order, and only lukewarm defenders in all those who would profit by the new order; this lukewarmness arising partly from the incredulity of mankind who does not truly believe in anything new until they actually have experience of it.” -----Machiavelli
You won't find this in the news, but countless hours of research toil, test animal torture, and government subsidies have yielded the ultimate objective of medical science: a unified theory of medicine that elevates medicine from an uncertain art to a predictable science. It explains the nature of physiology, pathology and stress. It promises cures for everything from cancer to the common cold; efficient, affordable health care; profitable pharmaceutical progress; priceless professional prestige; freedom from the eternal scourge of disease and premature death; and a new era of health, prosperity, and longevity. It confers a unified theory of biology that explains embryology, evolution, ethology, anatomy, intelligence, taxonomy, dinosaurs, and the Cambrian explosion. It may ultimately enable humans to alter evolution, with implications that presently reside in the realm of science fiction.
Stress theory was the prevailing paradigm of medical research within living memory, but it was abandoned after a 30 year search failed to find a testable mechanism that explains how it works. The discovery of the long-sought "mammalian stress mechanism" (MSM) represents the most revolutionary advance in medical history and the zenith of medical science. Regardless, the restoration of stress theory won't come readily. The MSM is complex, counterintuitive and at odds with entrenched dogma; and vested interests have lowered an iron curtain of misinformation that has mired medicine in a dark age that will be remembered for suffering and superstition, as we recall leeches and witchcraft. Proven treatments are abandoned while politics, propaganda, and false ideas promote profits at the price of public health. Cancer, chronic disease, and critical illnesses increasingly afflict rich and poor alike. Accordingly, the purpose of this website is to explain how stress theory works, how it enhances medical resources, and why political reform is required to revolutionize medical research and restore professional progress.
A book entitled "Recent advances in the stress theory of Hans Selye" is now in the hands of its publisher. Those interested may write to the author at firstname.lastname@example.org.
My adventure with stress theory began in medical school, when I attended the lectures of Dr. Johannes Rhodin at New York Medical College. Dr. Rhodin was a renowned expert on stress theory and electron microscopy. His lectures provided a solid foundation in stress theory...
