A poem for ICIM (memento from Maya Tulum)
The sky is blue, or so they say
But what is blue, and who are they?
I've seen the sky; you say it's blue
But what is sky, and who are you?
I see the blue up in the sky
But where is this, and who am I?
We see the sky, we hear the sea
We walk the earth, and who are we?

-Tolkien/Boyer-Edwards

Urgent concern by ICIM member Chuck Adams MD: We need state integrative medicine associations for legal protection!
Association of American Physicians and Surgeons
One by one, state legislatures across the country are introducing bills to create an "Interstate Medical Licensure Compact." If enacted, a vast majority of physicians seeking a license through the compact would be required to participate in MOC. In fact, the compact defines "physician" as one who holds specialty certification recognized by the American Board of Medical Specialties or the American Osteopathic Association's Bureau of Osteopathic Specialists. No state currently defines a physician in this manner.

Recommended by Terry Chappell MD: The Road to TACT2 updates from the 2nd trial to assess chelation therapy
Gervasio A. Lamas MD
Gervasio A. Lamas MD writes: "In 2013, I wrote in response to a column by Chris Cannon, M.D., about the difficulties encountered in changing minds. Chris had written about anticoagulation. I wrote about difficulties encountered convincing my colleagues to look dispassionately at a clinical trial about a pariah therapy, EDTA chelation for coronary disease. I don't want to go over all the strange bumps we encountered on the road to completion of the 134-site, 55,222-infusion study. At the end of this year, however, I am proud of our profession."

Suggested by Malcolm Sickels MD: Are nutritional IVs going mainstream?
Vice
On a cold January Sunday in Manhattan, a block-spanning black bus with yellow details squatted outside the Royal, a sports bar near Union Square on Fourth Avenue in Manhattan. It was 11 a.m., that ugly late-morning period when the city's hungover would be skulking down the street to get an egg sandwich, a smoothie, another beer or whatever could stop the pounding in their heads. And that's what the bus was offering — for prices starting at $129, you could walk in and get a licensed doctor to pump you full of vitamins and medication through an IV, presumably enabling you to pop into the bar for a pint in time for the impending NFL playoff game.

By ICIM member Dale Guyer MD: Holistic urology and integrative medicine
The Guyer Institute of Molecular Medicine
The therapeutic norms are often not as scientific as we would like to assume. Empirically, the diagnosis of conditions such as benign prostatic hypertrophy and prostatitis are often based on collective symptoms rather than documentable scientific studies. In addition, pharmaceutical applications are frequently applied off label.

Tannic acid inhibited norovirus by blocking its binding to HBGA receptors
GreenMedInfo
Noroviruses are the leading cause of viral acute gastroenteritis affecting people of all ages worldwide. The disease is difficult to control due to its widespread nature and lack of an antiviral or vaccine. NoV infection relies on the interaction of the viruses with histo-blood group antigens as host receptors. Here we investigated inhibition effects of Chinese medicinal herbs against NoVs binding to HBGAs for potential antivirals against NoVs.

ICIM Book of the Week


By ICIM member Jerry Tennant: 'Healing is Voltage: The Handbook, 3rd Edition'
Amazon
Every cell in the body is designed to run at -20 to -25 millivolts. To heal, we must make new cells. To make a new cell requires -50 millivolts. Chronic disease occurs when voltage drops below -20 and/or you cannot achieve -50 millivolts to make new cells. Thus chronic disease is always defined by having low voltage. This book tells you how to measure your voltage in each organ, how to correct it, and how to determine why your voltage dropped enough to allow you to get sick.
