Lecture on Influenza by ICIM member Kevin Logan MD
Logan MD
Influenza is a common acute respiratory disease that is caused by a virus and causes a seasonal epidemic. The H1N1 virus is a virus that was first seen in Mexico.Many doctors are not testing patients that present with symptoms for H1N1, but simply diagnosing them based on the observed symptoms. According to the CDC, the only way to know if a viral illness is H1N1 is by performing a specific test for the flu.

From ICIM member Elizabeth Vaughan MD
Friends and family,
I cannot believe I need to campaign every week for safe food, honesty in food labeling and now bio-identical hormones. For the sake of men and women who use these hormones and for those that may use them in the future, please contact your legislators in Washington DC and tell them to OPPOSE S.959. Do it now and pass this on to everyone who believes that we should have the right to choose how we live our lives. This bill is coming on the heels of the New England Compounding Center ( NECC ) tragedy AND it should not be used to deny patients the bio-identical hormones that they need.
Please act now.
—Elizabeth Vaughan MD

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement: PRESCRIBERS TAKE ACTION!
My Meds Mater
Your access to bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) is in serious jeopardy—again. Legislation is making its way through Congress that would give the Food and Drug Administration unprecedented control over compounding pharmacies that make BHRT. Five years ago, the FDA tried to ban the most commonly compounded BHRT treatments. The agency failed because it did not have the authority to do so. This bill gives the FDA authority to do that and much more. It’s that simple. Physicians and patients alike must tell Congress that you do not want the federal government involved in the prescriber/patient relationship and telling doctors how to run their practices.

Yes, the environment affects our health by ICIM member Cathie Ann Lippman MD
Staying Healthy in a Challenging World
A teenager asked me today if there really is that much difference between our environment now and how it was 100 years ago. I wanted to say yes and describe the changes without scaring her too much. The fact remains that over 80,000 new chemicals have been created since World War II and very few of them have been tested for their effects on us and other living beings. Testing does not occur until we become concerned that the chemical may be dangerous for living beings. That means that a terribly long time passes and huge amounts of damage must occur before we begin to investigate.

Healing with language: Recognizing modal operators
SCS Matters
One of the best indicators of what you can expect from patients or clients is their use of modal operators. Modal operators modify verbs and indicate a person’s way of thinking. Modal operators of necessity — such as can’t, won’t, must, have to, need to, should, shouldn’t, if … then — indicate limited choices. Modal operators of possibility — such as can, will, may, might, choose — indicate options. When a patient or client uses a modal operator of necessity, reframe the statement using a modal operator of possibility:

Pre-Alzheimer's: Metabolic disorder found in cognitively normal patients
Medical Xpress
Alzheimer's disease has been linked in many studies to amyloid plaque buildup in the brain, but new research is finding a common thread between amyloid burden and lower energy levels, or metabolism, of neurons in certain areas of the brain associated with Alzheimer's disease — even for people with no sign of cognitive decline. This is a new development in the understanding of Alzheimer's pathology, say neuroscientists unveiling the research at the Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging's 2013 Annual Meeting.

Britain to push G8 for action against 'superbugs'
Medical Xpress
Britain will urge the G8 to coordinate plans to prevent a spread of drug-resistant microbes, which it fears could cause a public health crisis, the government said Tuesday. Science Minister David Willetts said Britain would call for a joint clamp down on the over-prescription of antibiotics and for cross-border cooperation in fighting the spread of bacterial diseases at next week's G8 summit in Northern Ireland.

Danger: Cherry-picked drug studies
Alliance for Natural Health
Drug companies are deliberately keeping the public — and the medical community — in the dark about "unfavorable" clinical trials. Action Alert! The RECORD trial is just one example of how drug study data can be manipulated by pharmaceutical companies and the FDA. But it gets worse—even if a study finds a drug isn't very safe or effective, it's likely you and your doctor will never hear about it.
