Are homeopathic medicines potentially life saving? Or are they dangerous?
Arizona Center for Advanced Medicine
ICIM is planning a lead-in workshop Oct. 29 with Dr. Bruce Shelton about the diverse uses of homeopathy. The FDA has published two documents recently, which seem to indicate that they are planning to eliminate homeopathic medicines from your menu of choices in your healthcare.

Opinion letter from ICIM member Jerry Tennent
It is my opinion that asking physicians to show that homeopathy works will beg the demand for "double blind crossover studies published in multiple peer-reviewed journals" that will effectively kill us. We need to go to the public and get them to contact Congress.

By ICIM member Elizabeth Vaughan MD: The human microbiome: Cleaning it up (part 1)
Through the Human Genome Project, completed in 2003, scientists finally sequenced and mapped the 23,000 genes of the human body. After this world-changing feat, the scientific community has begun the arduous task of identifying the genetic makeup of the non-human genetic forms in our body. You didn't misread that — according to the National Institutes of Health, 90 percent of cells in the human body are not human. Advances in DNA technologies have birthed an amazing new field of research called metagenomics, allowing comprehensive examination of the microbial communities in and on our bodies. As a result, the Human Microbiome Project (also referred to as the Human Metagenome Project) was initiated in 2007.

By ICIM member S. Corneal Franz MD: Early allergen exposure cuts wheeze risk
Between 35 percent and 50 percent of children have some form of wheezing illness — an important cause of outpatient visits and hospital admissions — by the time they are 3, the researchers noted. The goal is to understand the environmental factors associated with recurrent wheezing — and eventually full-blown asthma — among children growing up in the inner cities, Wood said. In the so-called Urban Environment and Childhood Asthma study, Wood and colleagues are tracking 560 children in the inner-city regions of Baltimore, Boston, New York and St. Louis.

By ICIM member Conrad Maulfair DO: Diagnostic tools for clinical practice lead to real results in effective treatments
Maulfair Medical Center
Effective medical care includes looking for and finding the causes of someone's symptoms. If a physician only offers to medicate symptoms you never find the causes of health problems and the real problems continue as the need for additional medication increases.

New Member Profile


Dr. Rebecca A. Boyd, D.O., M.P.H.
Forward Health Solutions
Dr. Rebecca Boyd came to the practice of integrated medicine quite naturally. Over time, she discovered that the confines of traditional medicine did not adequately promote the healing process in a consistently substantive way. Her disillusionment working within the boundaries of traditional medicine led her to research alternative forms of medicine, healing, and maintenance. Boyd points out, "This is not so much a new age or futuristic look at the practice of medicine. The very foundation of integrative medicine — treating people, not diseases — is a well-documented phenomenon." She continued, "While the benefits of this approach have been known for years, few of the lessons learned have been incorporated into the actual practices of many doctors."

Political update from the Alliance for Natural Health


A few other things the agrichemical industry doesn't want you to know about them: Crimes, scandals and other wrongdoing
U.S. Right to Know
The agrichemical industry's six major firms, Monsanto, Syngenta, Dow, DuPont, Bayer and BASF, have been involved on so many reprehensible activities that documenting them all would require an entire book in itself. In fact, entire books have been devoted to the wrongdoing of two of these companies, while an extensive website documents the misdeeds of a third one.
