Connect with chelation

Dr. Dale Guyer writes, "In the early 1990's, while still in medical school, I attended a medical conference sponsored by the American Holistic Medical Association. One of the several interesting topics discussed was chelation therapy. At the time, I did not have a specific understanding about chelation therapy. It is an IV protocol full of vitamins, minerals and a specific amino acid — EDTA — that was purported to help circulation and cardiovascular disorders. But for many reasons, some of which were very unclear at the time, it was held in fairly high disdain by the orthodox medical community."

Warning — fish oil contains no true efas

Physicians and their patients are being misled. Tragically, physicians are prescribing what they think are essential fatty acids to their patients but they aren't. Instead, they are unknowingly prescribing "derivatives" of EFAs, consisting of enormous supra-physiologic overdoses of EPA and dHA.

How risky is your sleep schedule?
GreenMedInfo
In a comprehensive review of sleep and metabolism studies published in The Lancet Diabetes and Endocrinology, German researchers noted that sleep loss has been rising at epidemic rates in our society. The increase parallels the rise in obesity, metabolic syndrome and type 2 diabetes throughout the world.

ICIM Scrapbook: What's in a name?
Wendy Chappell writes, "As integrative doctors we see both sides of the coin, the allopathic training we were given in medical school, as well as innovative new ideas that we seek out to help our patients.
