ICIM past president Robban Sica, M.D., recommended:
Parker Hannifin Corporation offers a unique opportunity to integrative practitioners

The ICIM Board of Directors has reviewed this program and believes that it could offer a significant benefit to our members in bringing more patients into their practices, as well as getting chelation and other alternative tests and treatments paid for. Robban Sica presented it to the attendees at the DC meeting and there was a positive response. We encourage you to review the attached materials and use your own discretion to see if this is of interest to you. If you feel this is an opportunity that would benefit you, please contact Sherri Tenpenny within the next month to request an application to be credentialed to join their panel. It is not a difficult application, so we encourage you to take action right away.

By Glenn Sabin, a presenter at the Practice Management Compulsory at the ICIM Conference in Washington, D.C.
Sharon Begley's recent Reuters piece brought renewed attention to the seemingly low economic benefits of preventive medicine as currently defined. Begley's piece homed in on screenings that have shown positive economic impact. However, some of the best-known preventive measures, including annual physicals and cancer screenings for a number of populations of disease, have been shown neither to save money nor improve one's health.

Healing with language: Evidence procedures
Evidence is required to show competence or success or that something has been achieved. For example, if the goal is to weigh less, weighing becomes part of the process as it provides evidence of progress and lets you know you are moving in your desired direction. The number on the scale is a visual evidence procedure. If you want your patients or clients to recognize you as an authority in integrative medicine, certain things are required to convince others that you are truly integrating models of care and therapeutic modalities in a way that is beneficial for them.

Get the lead out
By ICIM member Elizabeth Vaughan, M.D.
ICIM member Elizabeth Vaughan, M.D., recalls how a 40-year-old man came to her office and complained of loss of appetite, weight loss, abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea and headaches for more than two years. He thought he was being poisoned by additives to gasoline from a leaking underground gas tank next to his gunsmith shop — he probably was. The real problem was his occupational exposure to lead, a toxic metal.

Justice in the workplace and multiple chemical sensitivity
Philip D. Ranheim, M.D., via Townsend Letter (Editorial)
The rejection felt by the person with sensitivities to low level chemical exposure is enormous. Caught between the need for a job and the realization that going to work is making one sick is, for many, a crisis which can be overwhelming. Add to that the great difficulty the worker's disability system has in recognizing this condition, let alone treating it and making accommodations in the workplace, and we have in our society a major problem. There may be little justice at this time for the employee suffering chemical sensitivity, particularly if those chemicals are multiple.
