The holistic theoretical framework for the book emerges in a grounded way from out of the fieldwork experience. The book is written in plain language and will appeal to anyone interested in holistic health outlooks, particularly cross-cultural health and wellbeing narratives.

The search for optimal medications to support health has been part of human history since early times. One concept that was learned in early human civilisations was that medications can be harmful as well as potentially beneficial. Folklore and anecdotal information dominated human knowledge for more than 50,000 years until the work of the Chinese emperor, Shen-Nung (2737 BCE), who became a pristine, official, and erudite classifier of medicinal herbs. Pharmacologic management of human disease is clearly part of the 21st century medical armamentarium. Adolescents of the second decade of the 21st century and those adolescents soon to come will determine the outcome of our planet and life into the 22nd century. Pharmacology will remain an ever-growing part of clinicians' efforts to improve their patients' mental and medical health, but in this book, the authors' have taken a holistic approach, which they hope will please and interest the reader.

Trying to create a bridge for both sceptic and believer to explore the gift psychic processes grant us is a demanding task. We carry these questions and doubts within us at all times. Probing issues around instincts, coincidences, beliefs and ESP through some extraordinary cases of psychic interaction begins to show how truly well-trodden these paths are, even when we do not realise it. Recognising the role that dreams can have on ordinary life and how much we can benefit from their frequently undervalued influence in conscious decision making is important. Discovering how to rise to the challenge of events around us using our creative and instinctive responses allows us the joy of personal integrity. Acknowledging our deep desire to be whole involves all of these senses and this awareness begins to show in our behaviour, our lives and our sense of fulfilment. The Silent Impulse brings all of these ideas together in an attempt to increase the knowledge base of psychic processes using personal experiences and established research. It is intended to provide a better understanding of these phenomena for the lay person and expert alike.
