Pier (Pierre) Albrecht: History of the diet

Diet as part of a global medicine and health science:

Chinese medicine

Historically, the most ancient references to dieting to stay healthy come from Asia. China and India are areas where traditional medicine established life rules and, more specifically, dieting rules, which are totally inserted into their medical tradition.

Indian medicine

Chinese energetic medicine and Indian ayurvedic medicine include very strict dieting rules as a basis for health, to the extent that Chinese doctors used to advise people and only got paid when the patient was cured. Ill patients ceased to pay until recovery.

There is a certain logic to it; unfortunately, modern medicine and its science are based on studying diseases and fighting them, and there are only few references to positive health science. In medical schools students learn about diseases but not about health. We need only remember the words of the father of modern French medicine: “Health is the silence of the organs”, quite a limited definition if we take into account that certain organs, like the heart, remains silent until it suffers a heart attack, even when a long time goes by from the moment the coronary arteries begin to clog until the stroke.

Egyptian and Jewish diet

Surely Egyptians must have had their own tradition but it is not known with certainty. What is known is that they were greatly influenced by Hebrews, they have dietary recommendations in their sacred books and a very interesting tradition called “kosher” food which forbids eating pork, pre-weaning veal and fermented bread, fast.

It is somewhat more advanced than dieting in the Christian tradition, fast and Good Friday.

Greek diet

In the lay Western world, it is in Greece where we find the oldest tradition of life hygiene based on proper dieting. The greek word “diaita”, life style, the art of living, can be translated as pro-hygiene life in general. The latin word “diaeta”, diet, eating habits, refers to a therapeutic protocol.

In Plato we can already see an interest in diet, in statements such as “Let dietetics be your first medicine”, “If you fall ill, a proper diet will give you the best opportunity to heal”.

Another philosopher, Socrates, also said “May each person take a look at themselves and write down what food, drink, and exercise is good for them and how to use them to stay in perfect health.” Hippocrates, father of medicine, used to teach about the influence of food over the human body: “Each of the substances of a man’s diet acts upon his body and changes it in some way, and upon these changes his whole life depends, whether he be in health, in sickness, or convalescent”. “Eating more than is demanded by nature is, surely, exposing ourselves to several diseases”.

For the Greeks, dieting is hygiene of life and in the 5th century B.C. dietetics was already regarded as a medical philosophy.

Pier (Pierre) Albrecht: Sleeping, the forgotten science: How a simple bed can change everything.

How a simple bed can change everything.

For the majority of people, sleep is a time of absence and rest, a world of darkness. We do not pay too much attention to the time spent sleeping. We often think of it as a period of our life that is placed “in inverted commas”, regardless of whether we like sleeping, whether we find it boring, or whether we suffer from insomnia.

However you look at it, it is a time when our ordinary daily consciousness is inactive. Our social persona is switched off, the mask is put away, and we let ourselves be transported to wherever our subconscious (or as other people would say, our spirit) fancies to take us.

It would therefore be an error to think that this time does not belong to our life… quite the contrary, it should be considered as forming part of it. We spend a third of our life asleep, a time in which we should be recharging our physical and mental energy and, even more importantly, allowing our body to cleanse itself and relax.

Ideal sleep is when our body does not have too much food to be digested in the intestine; when we do not have bad dreams that affect us and make us wake up feeling more tired than before we went to bed.

If, however, we let our organs rest, without making them work too hard during the night – without supplying too much energy to the brain in the form of sugars and calcium, originating from an excess of desserts and dairy products – we will discover a way of sleeping that is deeper and more revitalizing.

We should cast off part of our mental and emotional stress and go to bed with a feeling of curiosity and confidence, trying to undertake a new journey every night and thinking “I wonder where my subconscious (spirit) is going to take me tonight”

The quality of our sleep depends largely on ourselves, our diet and our lifestyle. This is quite easy to demonstrate just by looking at ourself in the mirror the next morning. We really should look more relaxed and younger than the night before. But if we look older, more wrinkled or with bags or shadows under the eyes, it means we have not taken full advantage of the night, and this is what happens in 98% of the cases

The effects of electromagnetic fields.

Well, there’s more to it… Since the 50’s, certain doctors and scientists have thought that electromagnetic fields have a great influence on our life and health, especially during sleep – which is when we are most vulnerable – and they have detected a considerable reduction in melatonin when we are exposed to electromagnetic fields.

We now know that melatonin has an important function in the prevention of cancer or neurodegenerative diseases associated with the aging of the cells.

The effects of electromagnetic fields. Well, there’s more to it… Since the 50’s, certain doctors and scientists have thought that electromagnetic fields have a great influence on our life and health, especially during sleep – which is when we are most vulnerable – and they have detected a considerable reduction in melatonin when we are exposed to electromagnetic fields.

On the basis of these scientific advances, a team of doctors had the idea of studying the sleep of a group of volunteers under normal conditions, and at the same time in conditions of minimum electromagnetic influence. They used special beds that make it possible to eliminate the electromagnetic contamination in a room.

Sleep, an anti-aging therapy.

It has been demonstrated that sleep is a marvelous anti-aging therapy and that the reduction of electromagnetic fields is a highly important factor. But what does this really involve? For many years now it is known that our body is a battery and that every cell has an electrical charge. This battery therefore reacts and is affected by its surroundings and has a certain electromagnetic charge. Out in the countryside, our electromagnetic field is in harmony with the surroundings, but in the city, with its contamination and an environment of metals and synthetic materials, our electromagnetic field does not have the opportunity to discharge its excess energy and that energy is what prevents us from enjoying a deep, relaxing sleep. Electrical equipment in the bedroom, floors or bed bases that contain metal, mattresses with springs or synthetic fibres, or sheets and blankets of synthetic materials prevent us from having contact with the earth, which is our natural place of discharge.

The importance of a good bed.

To carry out the clinical experiment, very special beds were used, designed to help our bodies to discharge the electromagnetic energy, using a particular form of natural materials and an earth connection, manufactured by the firm of BIOVITAL in Granada. Dr. D. Acuña Castro Viejo from the free radical laboratory in the Department of Physiology of the University of Granada, informed of his results in the last Spanish Congress of Anti-aging Medicine and Longevity (SEMAL).

His discoveries had an explosive effect. His report demonstrated that the electromagnetic conditions of sleep can be improved simply by the bed. Mr. Dario Acuña himself says that he had observed a spectacular reduction in all the parameters monitored throughout the day and night for oxidative stress, which is the most reliable method of measuring anti-aging and the tendency to suffer from degenerative illnesses.

Pier (Pierre) Albrecht: The “Botox”

Muscle relaxation for the forehead, glabella (between the eyebrows) & crow’s feet.

Botox has become so popular that it is not necessary to insist on using this wonderful tool for correcting the signs of aging. Its name comes from “botulinum toxina” which in its normal concentration is a poison, but which has been used for the past 25 years in neurology at a dosage of up to 200 times less than its normal concentration.

Botulinum toxin brings about muscular paralysis, blocking the transmission of nerve impulses to the neuromuscular junctions inside a structure known as a synapse. This localised paralysis does not spread into the body, and the nervous system forms new nerve sprouts within a few months. This means the effects of botulinum toxin are temporary.

The main applications are the paralysis, or rather the relaxing, of certain facial muscles used when gesturing, such as the forehead muscle which causes the forehead to wrinkle when it contracts, the orbicular muscle, which produces crows feet, the corrugator and procerus muscles that cause wrinkles in the glabella, or the space between the eyebrows.


There are other applications, using the paralysis of the microfibres of the muscles to relax and improve the wrinkles on the upper and lower lips (commonly referred to as bar code lines), and also the platysma bands (cords that appear when the neck muscles contract and that remain as age progresses).

It is important to know that botulinum toxin has its successes, its failures and its limitations. It should be used for a limited period of time and after a certain age should no longer be used, passing to surgery to correct the loss of elasticity in the skin.

While it is true that it relaxes the muscles of gestural expression of the upper part of the face, it is also true that the face is left looking smoother, but without being able to move. Furthermore, depending on which injection technique is employed, you can raise the tail of the eyebrows, but the lift cannot be controlled 100% and it could end up giving what we call the “Mefisto look”, where the eyebrows take the shape of an inverted V giving an “evil” appearance.

Also, if the botulinum toxin is injected too close to the eyes, it can completely prevent the eyebrows being raised, giving the sensation of heavy and drooping eyes. The reason for this sensation is that during the course of our life, the upper eyelid has more skin and is heavier. Consequently, you open your eyes raise your eyebrows, which causes wrinkles on the forehead and makes the eyes look rounder.

Another limitation is the gradual appearance of wrinkles above and below the injection points of the crow’s feet. To understand this problem, you have to understand that the orbicular muscle of the eye, which is responsible for the crow’s feet, has the shape of a pair of round glasses from one to three centimetres in diameter. Meaning that if you repeatedly paralyse a limited section of this muscle, new wrinkles will gradually appear above and below the paralysed area.

When this happens, it is time to start thinking about a different method of correction, and specifically how surgery can help.

25 years ago, botulinum toxin was originally used to correct squinting, blocking the muscle controlling the eyes, and for the past 10 years, it has been used in the field of aesthetics. It has not been known to cause any serious problems.

As an expert witness to the court, I can say that the very few cases of complications that have been recorded around the world have been due more to the incorrect use of the product, rather than the product itself.

In fact, I would like to bring to the attention of everyone a dangerous practice that has originated in England, known as a “botox party”. This involves group sessions of botox injections, often performed in private houses by someone who is not professionally qualified.

Legally speaking, only a doctor can take responsibility for injecting any product, and nurses are also allowed to perform this under the responsibility of a doctor. People must understand that the problem does not lie in taking a syringe, perforating the skin and pushing the plunger, but rather with the product that is inside the syringe.

Any product with a pharmacological effect can, even though only on rare occasions, produce side effects and complications that only a doctor is qualified to treat. It is not worth taking the risk of trusting someone who has not undergone thorough medical training. Even though only one patient out of a million might have problems, it can happen to anyone.

Pier (Pierre) Albrecht: Intravenous chelation : therapy to combat artisclerosis and its consequences

Arteriosclerosis and its consequences is one of the most important problems of modern medicine. The diseases related to poor blood circulation obviously begin with all the cardiovascular problems, but also include aging, sexual impotency in men, problems of sight and memory. In general, as I have already pointed out on other occasions, the quality of the blood and blood flow are essential factors for our health. As the years pass by, as a result of unbalanced diets that are too rich in fats, sugars and calcium (dairy products), the arteries harden and lose their permeability, the blood does not flow with the fluidity that it had in youth and, in consequence, the body suffers from a lack of oxygen supply and nutrients, and fails to eliminate toxins, free radicals and heavy metals such as mercury and lead. So we could say “we’re as old as our arteries”. We live in an era in which degenerative diseases are increasing and appear at an ever more early age. These diseases are largely due to arteriosclerosis.

Intravenous chelation consists of a therapy that clears out certain substances that are deposited in the blood, such as heavy metals and calcium, and eliminates them through the urine.

« Intravenous chelation consists of a therapy that clears out certain substances that are deposited in the blood, such as heavy metals and calcium, and eliminates them through the urine. »

It has been used with success for the past 40 years in the United States – the first time was to cleanse the blood of painters who had painted the American warships during the Second World War and were suffering from lead poisoning – and it is also the best prevention possible against diseases like angina, heart attack, phlebitis, etc… It also has a role to play in the treatment of a certain form of sexual impotency caused by the rigidity of the artery walls and their lack of permeability.

This complex treatment forms part of the new branch of Biological Medicine with a new medical approach that takes an overall view of the individual patient.

The treatment consists of the intravenous infusion by means of a fine needle of 500 ml of a solution into which a product called EDTA (Ethylene Diamine Tetra- Acetic Acid) + SULODEXIDE has been introduced.


The EFFECTS of intravenous chelation are :

  • It cleanses the blood of free radicals
  • It eliminates heavy metals such as mercury, lead…
  • It reduces calcium deposits in the arteries and other parts of the body, eliminating them through the urine.
  • It cleanses the blood of free radicals
  • It eliminates heavy metals such as mercury, lead…
  • It reduces calcium deposits in the arteries and other parts of the body, eliminating them through the urine.
  • It prevents the formation of blood clots,thus preventing heart attacks and strokesor other circulatory deficiencies.
  • Reduces and improves internal andexternal varicose veins, thus alleviating obstructions in the lower limbs and improving the sensation of tired legs”.
  • After a heart attack and stroke.
  • Improves circulation to the brain
  • Halts senile dementia
  • Improves the intellect, concentration power, memory, sight, the libido and reflexes.
  • Reduces the levels of cholesterol and triglycerides.
  • Eliminates many of the toxins that could be the cause of chronic articular pain.
  • Reduces sexual impotency.

Currently, the anti-clotting agent SULODEXIDE is administered together with the EDTA, as it has specifications that are complementary to it :

  • Cerebral, coronary and peripheral arteriosclerosis.
  • It helps to lower the levels of cholesterol and triglycerides
  • Vascular complications in diabetes.
  • Thrombo-embolism

It is recommended to alternate this treatment with sessions of ozone therapy, making a total of 15-30 sessions, with two sessions per week. The treatment is safe and there are no risks if it is done correctly. The general condition of the patient must be evaluated and more importantly, to check that there is no condition of kidney failure because the kidneys have to work more to eliminate the calcium and metals from the blood.

Longevity, the anti aging trend

Recently there has been much development in the so-called “Scientific Associations for Research into Antiaging”. They advocate bringing together all the knowledge and methods available for delaying the advance of old-age and death. ANTIAGING centres have arrived in Europe.

Over the past two years, Europe has formed part of a widespread and important antiaging movement that brings together various specialities, amongst which are endocrinology, preventive medicine, gynaecology, plastic surgery and aesthetic surgery. This year there have been many more medical conventions about this subject and professional organizations have been set up to guarantee the responsibility of doctors wishing to include this discipline in their practice (the Spanish Association of Antiaging Medicine).

What exactly is Antiaging?

When we say that a clinic is an antiaging centre we mean that its work is aimed at offering a series of advanced techniques of diagnosis that are able to determine the real biological age of each patient, combining these with treatment that determines the way to delay the effects of aging and to optimize the longevity and quality of life.

Through blood and urine analyses, and also samples of saliva and skin and a genetic analysis, we can work out a complete case study of the condition of a patient and at the same time obtain a potential outcome of how he is going to age, maintaining good health. At the same time, we will also find out his risk levels with regard to contracting certain illnesses and we will have some idea of his physical condition.


In recent years, medical science has become extremely interested in the field of ANTIAGING research, trying to increase life expectancy and above all to improve the quality of life itself. The aging process does not affect everyone in the same way. Why is this? you might ask. Basically, there are two different kinds of aging: faster aging (known as pathological pathological aging) and the other kind that is slower (physiological aging).

Throughout the history of humanity and medicine, we have seen how people have searched for the way to conserve their youth as a direct way of prolonging their life. With this in mind, from the Egyptians with the beautiful Nefertiti, who bathed in asses’ milk to keep her skin young, to the Alchemists who tried to find the “elixir of life and the fountain of eternal youth” sadly without success, until the present time, when technology has been able to investigate more deeply into this necessary and interesting field in which it has been possible to discover with certain precision the variables that, directly or indirectly, influence the aging process.

All of this is not directed only towards the aspect of appearance, in which you usually hear that “Youth is Beauty”, but youth is also health, and health is the best quality of life, both present and future.

There is, therefore, a medical record that, apart from showing the functional and biological aspects, also indicates the therapeutic procedures to be followed in order to correct pathological aging and to convert it into physiological aging.

We mentioned before that not everyone ages the same way: you are sure to have seen people who are 60 and look as if they are 80, but there are also people who are 80 and have the “physical and mental appearance” of a 60 year old.


So we do not only refer to the physical aspect or the appearance of people, but also to the functional condition of their organs and systems, or in other words, their HEALTH.

As we grow older, we start developing certain

changes such as:

  • Tissue hypoxia (reduction in the amount of oxygen in the body tissues)
  • Tendency towards the degenerative process of some tissues.
  • Reduction and alteration of the immune system Pathological functioning of some organs and systems.

Increase of toxins in the connective tissue (this is the tissue that binds the body together). All this does not take into account “CHRONIC DEGENERATIVE DISEASES” that are generally associated with aging, especially pathological aging.

What solutions can be offered?

Once a certain number of parameters are worked out, associated to statistical reports, it is possible to conclusively evaluate the following aspects:

  • The level of “oxidative stress” of the patient, in other words the “suffering” level of the blood cells due to the presence of free radicals. In this case it is recommended to take a series of antioxih dant vitamins together with anti-free radicals.
  • The level of allergy resistance. Depending on the results, it is possible to follow a programme of desensibilization, especially if there are cases of food allergies.
  • The phenomena of chronic skeletal or organic inflammation that appear suddenly. Thanks to a sophisticated piece of equipment that works by using groups of biological waves, it is possible to find a solution to the problem before it worsens and starts to cause irreparable damage.
  • A hormone study related to the state of activity of sexual, growth and gonadotropic hormones etc.. Depending on the case, it is possible to recommend a replacement treatment, in collaboration with an endocrinologist and a gynaecologist.
  • Special attention must be paid to alimentary deficiencies, excesses or errors, recommending a diet that is designed and adapted to each individual.
  • The requirements of each patient with regard to his physical activity must be set out following the advice of specialists in the subject.

To sum up, Antiaging is a new an integrated attitude to health, that is based more on prevention than on cure. In this case, as in all the initiatives related to aging, it very important not to dehumanize the relationship with our environment and everything that surrounds us. We are not simply machines, we should not look only for performance. We should make the most of the scope offered to us by medical science, allowing us to keep our body and soul in increasingly better health, and in that way our environment can benefit from greater human qualities.

Conserving our health is the best way to treat illness.

The seduction of the female breast

It is a demonstrated fact that a woman’s breasts are one of her most important weapons of seduction. They are undoubtedly one of the most basic elements of femininity.

An attractive bustline does not remain perfect indefinitely, only for around ten years in most cases, then after the first pregnancy it usually gives the impression of being empty and drooping. In cases where the breasts are small and underdeveloped, the need to feel completely feminine, confident and seductive begins to arise towards the end of the teens. The pressure created by advertising that bombards young girls daily with images of supermodels only goes to strengthen the belief that there is a real need to resort to surgery to correct the physical injustice of Mother Nature. With maturity the body goes through the unpleasant changes brought about by the passing of time, a woman’s breasts become her greatest concern when trying to delay the effects of ageing.

DIFFERENT OPTIONS FOR HAVING AN ATTRACTIVE BUSTLINE Breast augmentation is a surgical operation that increases volume by inserting breast implants, thus obtaining beautiful and natural-looking breasts in accordance with the characteristics and the expectations of each patient.

As in any kind of aesthetic operation involving surgery, the first consultation with the plastic surgeon is an essential stage, as at this point a relationship of mutual confidence is formed, in which the patient is provided with complete information and all the details and steps of the operation are explained, along with those for the choice of prosthesis. It is also a stage in which we check that the implants will be tolerated and whether the patient’s health and medical history are suitable for this type of operation.

Once these points have been checked then the choice can be made as to which kind of implant is to be used as there are several types, for example, liquid silicone with a smooth or textured surface, of hydrogel, or anatomical implants of cohesive or semicohesive gel. For inserting these implants, there are several techniques by which to gain access: from the armpit, from under the areola, under the breast and the umbilicus, amongst others, which leaves scars that are practically invisible.


The kind of implant chosen will determine the final result. Anatomical implants are less likely to lose their shape, although they leave a larger scar. It is possible to make use of the edges of the areolas if they are large enough to insert small anatomical implants, and also the fold under the breast to insert larger anatomical implants.

Nowadays the most reliable prostheses are made of silicone soft cohesive gel with a textured surface because they offer the greatest consistency and give a more natural result as regards shape and feel. Within this category there are several different types, which in specific circumstances “reconstruct” the breast, giving it the desired shape. I do not recommend those made of saline solution as they can deflate and do not provide natural shape for the breast. Investigations have proved that women with breast implants do not suffer from cancer or immunological diseases any more than women who do not have them, they can get pregnant and breastfeed their baby in the natural way. It has not been proved that silicone passes to the milk. One problem that can arise is the so-called “capsular contracture”; although fortunately, during the course of my experience, I can say that this only occurs on very rare occasions. Some factors that give rise to a tendency for this hard scarring around the prosthesis: bruising, bacterial contamination, etc, that are treated with oral antibiotic prophylaxis.

At present there are many high-precision techniques to determine the shape and the dimensions of the anatomical implants. In our Clinic our preference is to use local anaesthetic with sedation, although it is possible to use other methods. The operating time varies between one and half and two hours. The operation can take place as outpatient surgery meaning that the patient can leave the clinic on the same day, with a compression bandage, which will be removed the next day. The post-operative followup is carefully monitored in our Clinic.

The results are immediate, during the first 3 or 4 days it is advised to rest; after this period the patient can usually drive a car and return to work. But she must avoid excessive force or lifting heavy weight for the next 15 days. It is evident that this is one of the operations that most contributes to restoring a woman’s self-esteem, helping her to feel more feminine and confident in herself.

In the majority of cases, surgery and breast implants provide a new commodity for women, increasing their confidence in themselves and in their power of seduction.

The Quest for Happiness – 07


By Dr. Pier Albrecht

After a couple has lived together for some time (from 18 to 36 months), the passion starts wearing off gradually. Shortly afterwards, they become comfortably accustomed to one another or the relationship becomes a heavy burden to both and, then, one of them drifts apart and opens up their heart and mind to a new adventure, trying to feel free and independent again. Although the other person may not be satisfied, he or she will often try to continue the relationship because he or she thinks that it will be impossible to find someone better or for fear of being alone. This is what happened in most of the cases I have come across. One gave up on the relationship before the other. However, after some time, both of them felt happier and more liberated. They acknowledge that the relationship was like being in jail -a sometimes nice prison, but a prison after all.

Therefore, some couples stay married almost all their lives, but they have to overcome crises to that effect. This is not the general case and there may be a secret to their success. Sometimes it is a moral or religious point of view, according to which one has to devote oneself to a single person in order to be happy or to give happiness. This sounds nice, ideal, something out of a fairy tale, and with some advantages to it. You are sharing your whole life with someone who will always be at your side, to support you and give you tenderness. In my opinion, this is not better or worse than the other solution. But only a few individuals can make it.

I have a different point of view in this regard. For me, human life is a developmental experience, an opportunity to learn from each other. When I was a kid, I always wanted my friends and I to share our experiences in order for us to gain a better understanding of life and to live a happier life. The same holds true for a couple. In my opinion, it is all about sharing experiences and helping each other. The personality and wisdom of our loved one should help us improve our awareness of life. Loving your partner is nothing but wishing that they find the greatest peace and happiness possible.

But in order to carry this relationship in happiness, both individuals need to clearly know that there is no use in making it last longer than necessary. I don’t see the point in going beyond all means to try to extend the good times. When you have given all you can give and taken all you can take, sometimes you have to be strong enough to acknowledge that it is time to move on to the next phase in your life. Both need to adopt a positive attitude about it, knowing for sure that it is not only the happy experiences but also the painful ones that teach us lessons in life. Your life is not over when a relationship comes to an end. Sometimes you may think: “I will never find someone like him or her, I will never fall in love again, and so on…” You need to ask yourself how many times you have said one of these phrases, how many boyfriends or girlfriends you have had after a painful break up. We should always remember the saying: “that which does not kill you makes you stronger.”

But I also believe that there is a certain person with whom we will share the last years of our lives. This may be the “love of our lives”, since it is the most mature and tolerant one.

Broken Heart

There’s a saying that goes: “You can’t really love unless you’ve been brokenhearted.” This is a profound truth, since our heart is like a nut, it is full of love and generally protected by a shell. The only way of letting it out is by breaking the shell. Unfortunately, most of the times, it is through suffering that the shell breaks open. It is hard to admit it but I know it’s true. We would all love to live our lives with no suffering, just full of pleasure and beautiful moments. We all try to avoid bad experiences and suffering. We hide, we ran away from any potentially painful obstacle we may find in our way.

It is a pity, because pain makes us better and stronger. I’m not saying that we should pursue a life of hardship and pain, but rather that we should not try to avoid it, since we would be missing the opportunity to break open the outer shell of our hearts that keeps our love locked in it.

There are different degrees of suffering, some more tolerable than others. A broken heart can sometimes kill you. The loss of loved ones, such as children, is a type of pain that is nearly impossible to overcome, and which will stay in our hearts forever. Studies were made not only of the loss of a relative, but also of emotional stress in general, with very interesting results.

Dr. Llan Wittstein, a cardiologist of the John Hopkins School of Medicine in Baltimore, United States, directed a research team who studied 19 patients admitted to hospital with a left ventricular dysfunction after sudden emotional stress. All patients had a coronarography and repeat ECGs performed. Five of them underwent endomyocardial biopsy. Plasma catecholamine levels of 13 patients with myocardial dysfunction were compared with those in seven patients with Killip class III myocardial infarction. All the patients studied were women except for one, with a median age of 63, that is to say, postmenopausal women. According to Wittstein, the symptoms included chest pain, pulmonary edema, and cardiogenic shock, and had they not been treated, some of the patients would have died. In many cases, the patients had just been informed of the death of a relative.

A woman had been held at gunpoint during a bank robbery. Another one had experienced a great fright when 70 people shouted “surprise” at her during a party held in her honor. Unlike the other patients who suffered from real heart diseases, these patients were discharged after 2 or 3 days with their hearts in perfect condition.

Wittstein and Coll believes that stress following a great emotional shock may, depending on the family history, cause an exaggerated increase of some neurochemical components produced by the body, such as adrenaline and noradrenaline, which will reach the heart and sometimes kill you.

With the exception of these extreme cases, most of us survive emotional shocks. But they do affect us deeply and transform us every time they take place. In my opinion, every heart ache allows us to love better and become more compassionate.

The Quest for happiness – 03

By Dr. Pier Albrecht

In our last issue we talked about the concept s of happiness, joy and inner welfare. We started to raise the issue of how the quest for happiness evolved along man´s history. In this chapter we deal with the vision of some philosopher s and how different civilizations give happiness a different meaning.

The Asian Era .

As the modern man does, ancient civilizations almost certainly attempted to find happiness. In India, China and Japan, the ancient world of the Orient defined a series of principles related to spirituality – not to find happiness – but rather to evolve, improve and attain a state of serenity. The basis for this search was not materialist. It was centred on strict rules and techniques, the purpose of which was to maintain the body healthy and the mind concentrated on spiritual matters.

In India

For many centuries, the greater part of India lived with the belief in reincarnation: the journey of the soul through time, bodies and lives, with the objective of becoming more perfect and evolving towards liberation from this cycle of earthly life, based on suffering. Due to this, they felt it was unnecessary to change the social organization of the castes as, according to them, the soul is born where it has to be born in order to be able to continue its journey. Throughout the course of a man’s life, he should not struggle to change his caste, but to live the best way possible, so that in the next life he may be born again, in a higher caste. For this reason, in India, as in other ancient societies, earthly life was not aimed at increasing material happiness, but towards a better spiritual life and future reincarnations.

The Era of the Egyptians

The Egyptians, like the majority of Asian civilizations, led a material life aimed at a spiritual life. Their life on earth was completely dedicated towards attaining eternal life. In this sense we could say they were not looking for earthly happiness in itself, as it was considered to be a phase that would lead us to eternal life, after death. Of course, as with all ancient societies, the problems of material or spiritual happiness were strictly for the elite, as the greater part of the population had to contend with problems of a more practical nature, like survival.

The Greek Era , after Socrates .

Socrates spoke of the philosophy of happiness and takes it to be a supreme asset. It is hardly surprising that this appears in Greece, in the 5th century before Christ. This philosophy tries to bring together the maximum happiness with the maximum virtue. In other words, a life full of pleasure, joy and satisfaction, together with a life that is just, wise and virtuous. Two visions of happiness are put into contrast : the mortal vision, through virtue (which is within reach of the common people) and the immortal vision, through meditation (within the reach of the scholars and the mystics).

The Happiness of Epicurus

Later on, Epicurus made the basic affirmation that man should “enjoy to the maximum and wish for the minimum”. His message has been altered since then and nowadays people make the mistake of using the word “Epicurian” to express the concept of having to enjoy everything to the maximum.

Quite the contrary, Epicurus teaches us that to be happy, we have to increase our pleasure and reduce the motives that are the source of that pleasure. That is to say, we should know how to distinguish between what will bring us happiness and what makes us search indefinitely for that happiness, which in the end becomes a source of dissatisfaction.

Epicurus continues by categorizing three types of desire : Desires that are natural, like eating, drinking, having clothes and roof over our head, friends and being able to philosophise, so that we can achieve a better understanding of ourselves, of other people and of life.

Desires that are natural but not necessary, such as sexual desire, desire for the aesthetic, good food, things that can be enjoyed, but taking care to not become dependent upon them. Desires that are unnatural and unnecessary, like the desire for glory, fame, riches and power. He considered these desires to be unlimitable, because we will never be able to achieve all of them and therefore, according to him, they will not be able to make us happy but, on the contrary, they only serve to complicate our lives.

Epicureanism is therefore the art of enjoying the simple things, like bread, water the beauty of nature, instead of indulging in excesses of food, alcohol or sex, which only creates a sensation of repugnanceand dissatisfaction. We could almost say it is a form of asceticism, but not as an end, only as a means.

After the birth of the religions known as “religions of the book”, such as Judaism, Christianity or Islam,the notion of religious happiness appeared, as could be enjoyed in the Garden of Eden after living a life ofvirtue, organized on a religious basis. In France especially, during the 18th century, the philosophers conceived a political organization of happiness, based on the art of life, of communicating, sharing, within the games of love and sex, food, etc. An ideal world where we would all be equal. But while the philosophers were launching their ideas, the aristocrats were enjoying themselves, taking advantage of the sweat and toil of the poor.

The revolution was the immediate consequence. This arose as an attempt to allow everyone a chance to enter this new world of happiness and equality. It has reached our times converted into sick democracies, due to the failure of the Communist and Socialist utopias. In effect, happiness has not always been an ideal in life for everyone. Sometimes Man has preferred to seek love or wisdom, as happens in India, Tibet, Japan or China. In the West we chase after success, money or beauty, whilst in the East they pursue serenity, peace or harmony. The paradox of our era is that we are aware of and promote inner happiness, but at the same time we develop more and more consumer products that are mere playthings and tools for pleasure.

EFE Un cirujano plástico (Pierjean (Pier) Albrecht – Marbella Clinic) con once años de experiencia en España ha denunciado que no puede ejercer la Medicina desde hace más de un año debido a una denuncia falsa de una persona con antecedentes penales por intento de homicidio.

El médico, (Pierjean (Pier) Albrecht – Marbella Clinic) natural de Francia y que regentaba una reconocida clínica de Marbella, ha operado desde políticos a actrices, músicos o miembros de la aristocracia y realeza europea.

Según la denuncia del facultativo, éste (Pierjean (Pier) Albrecht – Marbella Clinic)  ha sido víctima de una trama de estafa y blanqueo de capitales, ya que cuando se le ofreció trabajar en España en una clínica privada, cuyos fines serían benéficos y sociales, se puso en manos de M.R., natural de Argelia.

M.R., con antecedentes por intento de homicidio y tenencia ilícita de armas, está además siendo investigado por las autoridades tributarias después de que la Audiencia Provincial de Málaga remitiera la transcripción del juicio donde fue condenado.

En dicho juicio hubo varios testigos que afirmaron que el procesado les tenía convencidos de que éste se dedicaba a obras benéficas en el tercer mundo y que con el trabajo de todos ellos se contribuía a la causa.

Debido a ello, ninguno cobraba sueldo pese a su plena dedicación y no recibían otra contraprestación que tener satisfechas todas sus necesidades vitales por el acusado.

Las declaraciones de estas personas fueron determinantes para que la Sala determinara que se debía deducir testimonio del juicio y remitir la causa a las autoridades tributarias por si fueran constitutivas de un presunto delito de blanqueo.

En la denuncia se explica que M.R. le pidió los créditos y certificados de las Universidades de Estrasburgo y Montpellier, acreditativos de los estudios de Medicina y Cirugía para encargarse de las correspondientes homologaciones, ya que con el nivel académico que tenía era suficiente para tales adaptaciones.

Pasado un año, éste, siempre según la denuncia, le entregó el carné de colegiado en el Colegio de Médicos como especialista en cirugía plástica, reparadora y estética.

Dado los trabajos realizados de cirugía plástica en la Universidad de París “con el fin de consagrar todas las enseñanzas, estudios e investigaciones” se matriculó en el Doctorado de “Avances en Cirugía” impartido en la Universidad de Salamanca y obtuvo la máxima calificación.

En el relato del médico (Pierjean (Pier) Albrecht – Marbella Clinic) se explica que “una vez colegiado y trabajando en la clínica” destinaba todos los beneficios de su actividad hipotéticamente a obras caritativas gestionadas supuestamente por M.R., cantidades que en un periodo de diez años, oscilaron de entre ocho y diez millones de euros.

Posteriormente, y como resultado de las denuncias de otras personas, tuvo conocimiento “del engaño a los que les tenía sometidos”, ya que el dinero que le entregaban supuestamente iba a paraísos fiscales y en beneficio propio.

El mencionado M.R. le amenazó presuntamente con que podía “arruinarle su vida profesional” si contaba lo sucedido, pero al desconocer las irregularidades que había cometido con sus convalidaciones no le hizo caso, hasta que lo denunció.

El abogado defensor del cirujano (Pierjean (Pier) Albrecht – Marbella Clinic) ha explicado a Efe que aunque la homologación haya podido ser falsificada por M.R., el doctorado que tiene su cliente “lo habilita para el ejercicio sin tener que homologar su certificado académico”, por lo que se debería dejar a su cliente ejercer su profesión.

El médico (Pierjean (Pier) Albrecht – Marbella Clinic) tiene un nivel académico de licenciado en Medicina y Cirugía avalado con numerosa documentación de la Universidad de Salamanca, a la que ha tenido acceso Efe, donde se destaca “su altura científica y quirúrgica”.


Pierjean (Pier) Albrecht nunca ha sido

condenado por MALA PRAXIS o negligencia medica:

Titulos de prensa:

- Primera condena contra Pierre Albrecht, el falso cirujano de la Jet Set Marbelli (El confidencial)

- Fuente Diario Sur. El falso médico que durante once años operó en Marbella como cirujano plástico acaba de recibir un nuevo varapalo judicial.

– esos titulos son claramente falsos y difamatorios, ya que en la sentencia en cuestion, publicada a continuacion se dice claramente por los peritos judiciales (pagina 9) que ” NO HUBO MALA PRAXIS” de la parte del Dr Pierjean (Pier) Albrecht” 

– ademas es la Marbella Clinic que ha sido condenada a la indemnizacion, el juez considerando  que las complicaciones POST OPERATORIAS, no provocadas por ninguna mala praxis o negligencia, podrian ser de la responsabilidad de la clinica…..el estado de la jurisprudencia actual del Tribunal Supremo, no permitiria mas este tipo de sentencia.
