Paradox & Controversy: Infections, Cancer Management, and Energy Medicine
Oct. 28-Nov. 1, 2015

By ICIM members Terry Chappell MD and Rae Neal NP: A comprehensive integrative approach to diabetes
More alarming than diagnosis and cost is the impact diabetes has on our overall health and well-being. Diabetes was listed as the seventh leading cause of death in the United States in 2010. When diabetes is controlled we reduce the risk of co-existing diseases. Unfortunately, many patients remain with an elevated hemoglobin A1C. Uncontrolled diabetes leads to multiple micro and macro vascular complications. Co-morbidities secondary to diabetes include: hypertension, hyperlipidemia, coronary artery disease, cerebral vascular accidents, chronic kidney disease, amputation, retinopathy, and neuropathy.

By ICIM member Jim Smith DO: Toxic metals
The current terminology used is heavy metals or toxic heavy metals. Heavy refers to the atomic weight of the element. For example, molybdenum is a heavy but essential metal, while beryllium is a light but very toxic metal. Additionally, essential metals like calcium can be toxic at supraphysiologic levels and chromium as the Cr+3 ion is an essential trace element important for maintaining correct blood sugar levels, but as the Cr+6 ion is a known human lung carcinogen. Also, arsenic which is considered a toxic metal is really a metalloid, not a metal. At this point I am using toxic metals to describe metals with no known biological function that may disrupt essential physiological processes. Examples of this are cadmium, lead, mercury and arsenic.

By ICIM member Dale Guyer MD: The new era of regenerative medicine
The Guyer Institute
Many new techniques are emerging within the area of regenerative medicine which focus on therapies that can support the body's own renewal and cellular regenerative process. Historically, hormone replacement therapy administered to restore optimal levels of hormones such as DHEA, growth hormone, and testosterone have have been used to restore cellular restoration potential. While these remain essential tools in the area of regenerative medicine, other longstanding adjunctive therapies, especially in tendon and connective tissue regenerative needs, remain crucial.

ICIM Book of the Week

By ICIM member and speaker Simon Yu MD: 'Accidental Cure: Extraordinary Medicine for Extraordinary Patients'
Warning: Your medical problems may not be what you think or what you have been told. "Accidental Cure" refers to a discovery that Dr. Simon Yu made in Bolivia during a United States Army Reserves assignment in 2000. The Army was there to dispense anti-parasite drugs to 10,000 Bolivians. In the few weeks that Yu worked with patients in Bolivia, he noticed remarkable changes in patient health and decided to try the drugs in his practice when he returned to St. Louis. Yu had, and continues to have, startling results with anti-parasite drugs.

New Member Profile

New ICIM member Michael Miletic MD: Backtalk; outside the norm: The mindset of the elite athlete
The New York Times
The grandson of Croatian and Polish immigrants, Miletic grew up in Windsor, Ontario. At 14, he began serious strength training for his main love, ice hockey, and for high school football at a gym where Canadian weight-lifting champions also worked out. Miletic liked the explosiveness of weight lifting. Eventually, at 6 feet 2 inches and 242 pounds, he became a member of the Canadian Olympic team. The same week in 1982 that he graduated from the University of Western Ontario medical school, he won a national title at 100 kilograms.
