Paradox & Controversy: Infections, Cancer Management, and Energy Medicine
Oct. 28-Nov. 1, 2015


ICIM is a medical association of physicians dedicated to exploring and teaching integrative treatments to help our patients. Our 60th meeting is coming up Oct. 30-Nov. 1 in Chicago. This newsletter is designed to prepare attendees and continue discussions of the education we provide.

Defuse the toxic metal time bomb
As physicians, we must address the toxic metal time bomb affecting our patients' health. ICIM will teach you how to use chelation therapy safely and effectively April 23-24 in Dallas. In addition to serving as a treatment to eliminate heavy metal toxicity, chelation is also part of a comprehensive approach to diabetes. We will outline the evidence that justifies chelation as a treatment for heart disease. This ICIM workshop is an affordable way to start using chelation immediately; you will become qualified to practice without hidden costs or test fees.

Recommended by John Parks Trowbridge MD: Saliva test promises simpler diagnosis for autism
In lieu of an effective medical test, physicians rely on assessments of behavioral patterns and social skills to diagnose autism. But new research suggests that this process needn't be so prolonged and intrusive. A team of scientists has identified biomarkers in the saliva of children with the condition, potentially paving the way for earlier, and more reliable, diagnoses.

By ICIM member Su Fairchild MD: BPA-free cans
The Integrative Medicine Blog
Of course, one does not know what else manufacturers are using in place of BPA, and some may be using BPS (Bisphenol S) and PVC (polyvinyl chloride), so glass is still the safest. It is a simple thing for manufacturers to switch from BPA to BPS and call their product "BPA free."

Suggested by ICIM member Evan Hirsch MD: Reduced vitamin D levels linked with greater risk of dying over 12-year period among frail older adults
Life Extension Update
The study included 4,731 participants in the Third National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey who were over the age of 60. Serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D levels were assessed upon enrollment. Frailty was defined as meeting three of five criteria that included low body mass index, slow gait, weakness, exhaustion and reduced physical activity levels. Among those whose vitamin D levels were among the lowest 25 percent of participants at less than 50 nanograms per milliliter, there was a 94 percent greater risk of being frail compared to those whose levels were highest at 84 ng/mL or more. Intermediate levels of vitamin D were associated with pre-frailty, defined as having one to two frailty factors.

ICIM Book of the Week

By ICIM member Cornelia Franz MD: 'Common Sense Pediatrics: Combining Alternative and Traditional Medicine in Everyday Practice'
This book is a loving compilation of amazing things I have learned in my pediatric practice. It combines the essentials of everyday pediatrics on raising healthy children as well as alternative options to treating illnesses, when appropriate. The body is more than the sum of its parts, and I have learned that when one sees the person as a whole being — emotional, physical and spiritual — that healing can be deeper and more thorough than just treating symptoms.

Prepare for ICIM's 60th Meeting: Oct. 28-Nov. 1, 2016, Chicago

By ICIM member Catherine Waller MD: NES miHealth provides effective biofeedback for energizing stress release
Waller Wellness Center
Studies show that NES miHealth really works. Researchers in one recent study assessed 251 subjects along 367 data points, meaning they explored the effects of stress release on many parts of the body. In that study, 88 percent of participants benefited from their very first NES miHealth treatment. Additionally, the researchers noted that the rejuvenating effects of NES miHealth were compounded in the second and third sessions. Patients reported an increasing trend toward wellness with every NES miHealth treatment.

Political update from the Alliance for Natural Health

Congress moves to step up vaccine enforcement
Alliance for Natural Health USA
Parents deserve answers to what are reasonable questions about vaccine safety. In a predictable reaction to the recent measles outbreaks, both Republicans and Democrats in Congress filed a "Vaccines Saves Lives" resolution recently. Claiming that there is "no credible evidence" that vaccines cause "life-threatening or disabling disease," the resolution interprets the vaccination issue as some kind of national security threat — thereby supposedly trumping your right to make informed decisions about your own and your children's health. If passed, this resolution will bolster the current backlash against vaccine exemptions and pave the way for states' efforts to mandate universal vaccinations.
