    It is where I first learned of the term anyway. It may have some prior etymology I am unaware of though.

Retired actually after 22 years IHS (Indian Health Service which is a uniformed service, Navy Uniform, Coast Guard buttons because it is actually a branch of the Coast Guard)

    Anyway, I recommend here for further reading. https://www.newmedicine.ca/overview.php
    Thanks for the link. I've have a look. I'm especially interested in elaborations of meditation and controlled breathing.

    EDIT: It seem there is a lot more programmed response than I initially contemplated!

    All diseases start with a cold phase, activity of the parasympathetic nervous system predominates, the shock is a constant preoccupation, nights seem long, extremities are cold...
    Smoking is known to reduce blood circulation and a cause for cold extremities especially in colder climates. In a way, working with the thesis above, smoking is like an artificial onset of disease. I can't disagree with that but, is it observable that smokers are more vulnerable to disease then non-smokers?
