Paleo and woo: Bad company until the day they die
ScienceBlogs
There are many fallacies that undergird alternative medicine, which evolved into "complementary and alternative medicine," and for which the preferred term among its advocates is now "integrative medicine," meant to imply the "best of both worlds." In the minds of CAM proponents, old is more likely to have been based on nature and the naturalistic fallacy often correlates with the fallacy of antiquity.

Response to 'Paelo and woo' from ICIM member John Parks Trowbridge M.D.
As an acknowledged expert in Integrative Medicine for almost all of my almost 35 years in practice, I must offer this ..... all of the criticisms are well placed. I have long considered many "integrative" explanations to be WRONG, leading practitioners and devotees alike to wander down the wrong rabbit holes.

April issue of IMCJ with a commentary by David Benson
IMCJ
I am pleased to report that the number of submissions of original research IMCJ receives continues to increase. As part of our ongoing efforts to improve our quality, we subject all original research to rigorous evaluation of the statistics used to determine validity of the findings. Surprisingly, this critical component is often done poorly, so we now invest resources in providing guidance to the researchers on which statistical methodologies would better match their research design.

Healing with language: The Metamodel
ICIM
The first linguistic model adopted by Richard Bandler and John Grinder when they developed Neurolinguistic Programming was called "the Metamodel" because it was first and foundational. The underlying metaphor is, "The map is not the territory." As we have mentioned in previous tips, just as maps focus on limited aspects of the actual territory, human perceptions and representations are neither fully accurate nor complete.

Letter from ICIM member Dr. Robert Rowen
ICIM
There is a bill in the California assembly that has great relevance for your trainees, associations, customers, patients, readers, etc. Right now, integrative management of cancer is a crime in this state. The bill will decriminalize the nutritional, lifestyle, detoxification approaches to cancer management. We need as much support as you can give it.

Effect of disodium EDTA chelation regimen on cardiovascular events in patients with previous myocardial infarction

Journal of the American Medical Association
Treatment of lead toxicity with chelation was first reported with EDTA in the early 1950s. Apparent success in reducing metastatic calcium deposits led Clarke in 1956 to treat angina patients with EDTA, and others to use chelation for various forms of atherosclerotic disease. Over the next decades, based on favorable anecdotal and case report experience, chelation practitioners increased their use of EDTA for coronary and peripheral artery disease.

Too many drug types are compromising heart health

Reuters
About 80 million Americans suffer from heart disease, the nation's No. 1 killer, and most are on multiple drugs. Some cardiologists think prescribing has gotten out of hand. The criticism was voiced by a number of leading heart doctors who attended the annual scientific sessions of the American College of Cardiology in San Francisco.

Another meme crashes? Sudden inkling chelation works

The Daily Bell
We've been aware of chelation and its usefulness for several decades. While our position regarding healthcare has gradually changed, we still believe that chelation is useful. Now, apparently, the FDA will have to do the same. Here's what we believe: Strive to keep the body in balance or return it to balance. A natural state is a healthy state. Avoid the poison of pharmaceuticals whenever possible. A long-term diet of Western medicine is not recommended. Within this context, chelation would not seem to be a very likely candidate for natural health.

Integrative medicine: Sounds icky, but treatment's promising
The Sacramento Bee
The New England Journal of Medicine reported that Dutch researchers who performed a randomized trial in which 13 of 16 patients with C. difficile colitis infection of the colon improved after the fecal transplant. This was compared to less than one-third of patients who improved with conventional antibiotic treatment. While this may seem to be an icky and isolated medical factoid, it brings to light the fact that the specific bacteria that humans normally carry in their bodies are helpful in creating health.
