The road to serfdom is paved with good intentions
Association of American Physicians and Surgeons
The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act — ACA/ "ObamaCare" — sounds as though our best interests were at the heart of the legislation. But so far, the 400,000-word law that nobody read has spawned some 12 million words in regulations. Now these regulations that even fewer people read are coming between you and that doctor you were promised you could keep.

Grab a cup of coffee
Chronic degenerative diseases such as atherosclerosis, diabetes and arthritis are called chronic degenerative diseases because they persist over a long period of time. Once the diagnosis of arthritis, diabetes or atherosclerosis is made it is generally accepted by patient and professional that the disease will be present for the rest of the patient's life. What may escape notice is the disease process began long before symptoms were present and the diagnosis was made.

Sophie Marcum writes, "The past weekend in Nashville was a blur of country music, great ICIM food and lots of doctors. When we three teens arrived, we were excited to find that not only could we put our knowledge of technology to use, but we enjoyed doing it. Our goal was to help conference attendees install a Twitter application (app) on their smartphones, make an account and tweet using the conference hashtag Wendy had designed: #ICIMnash."

Millions of people suffer from seasonal and perennial allergies and the bad news is that more people will become allergic as our environment becomes more polluted and unhealthy. The conventional medical approach to allergy treatment ranges from over-the-counter and prescription nasal and oral anti-allergy medications, to immunotherapy with weekly to bimonthly injections. Unfortunately medical therapy has the potential for side effects, and in the case of allergy shots, requires routine visits to the allergist’s office — and they don’t always work. The good news?

Why your conference should adopt the healthy family metaphor
Velvet Chainsaw's MIdcourse Corrections
Many conferences foster and nurture family-like units. Without realizing it they have created totally dependent grown-up kids all in the name of membership, familiarity and comfort. So here's the one question you should ask when you are forced to pacify that battling brood that doesn't want growth: "How would a healthy family handle this?"
Radical redesign and the door to transformation
American Board of Integrative Holistic Medicine
Jamie Harvie writes, "I'm a believer in synchronicity. For that reason, I've been thinking about two recent Huffington Post blogs which appeared within the span of a couple weeks. The first was one by John Weeks, editor of the Integrator Blog titled 'Hooking Up: Don Berwick, Integrative Medicine and His Call for a Radical Shift to "Health Creation.' The other was written by retired Bay Area physician and soda tax champion Jeff Ritterman, 'Can a Hat Trick Reverse Obesity?' I was intrigued, because through my lens, these blog posts were intimately connected."
