Ultraviolet blood irradiation therapy: The cure that time forgot

In the 1940s, a multitude of articles appeared in the American literature detailing a novel treatment for infection. Healing was not limited to just bacterial infections but also viral, wounds, asthma and arthritis. There has never been reported any toxicity, side effects or injury except for occasional Herxheimer type reactions. As infections are failing to improve with the use of chemical treatment, this safe and effective treatment should be revisited.

Healing with language: Willingness to change
Even when the current situation is uncomfortable or isn't consciously desired, a patient or client may lack the willingness to change. The difference between a stated desire and an the willingness to change is usually called resistance. Resistance usually results from some hidden benefit or secondary gain from the status quo.

Hyped supplement tests reveal questionable methods and motivations
Alliance for Natural Health
In its latest report, tested 42 of the leading multivitamin/multimineral products sold in the U.S. and Canada, including three multis intended for pets. They "failed" 16 products, some for the most specious of reasons. warned against products for exceeding the upper limits for nutrients set by the Institute of Medicine, whom we have taken to task for their disastrously low recommendation for vitamin D dosages. As Dr. Robert Verkerk, scientific and executive director for ANH-Europe, points out in the journal Toxicology, ULs are intrinsically flawed, as they focus on a single, most sensitive adverse effect on the most vulnerable sub-population.

How to improve your integrative medicine brand identity

Glenn Sabin writes, "For those in the integrative health space, it's imperative to learn about and employ effective content creation, digital marketing and social media strategy. It is also important to understand the continued effectiveness of more traditional forms of marketing and communications including targeted direct mail, print, referrals and experiential (educational outreach) programs. Building patient volume requires an array of effective, sustainable marketing tactics that combine for a winning strategy."

The current study examines this protocol using a randomized, double-blind design with an intent-to-treat analysis.
