ICIM awards $20,000 research grant to Dr. Lamas: Chelation therapy for diabetics
Eventbrite - End Pain

The International College of Integrative Medicine (ICIM) is pleased to announce that the James P. Carter Memorial Grant for EDTA Chelation Research has been awarded to Dr. Gervasio Lamas in the amount of $20,000.

Dedicated to Dr. Carter, this grant was created to inspire innovative thinkers such as Dr. Lamas to conduct further clinical research that will aim to confirm the results of the Trial to Assess Chelation Therapy (TACT) for treating vascular disease and diabetes.

The grant supports a pilot effort by Dr. Lamas to replicate a 1990's Danish study led by Claus Hancke, which showed that 24 of 27 diabetic patients on a waiting list for amputation were able to cancel their surgery after integrative treatment. Lamas will also examine whether the elevation of toxic metals such as lead is a possible mechanism of action.

By ICIM 'End Pain' speaker Bruce Hulub PhD: EPA/DHA and 'silent inflammation'
Inflammation is a normal body response to injury or infection often resulting in swelling, heat, pain, or redness to the affected area for a very limited duration. On the other hand, "silent inflammation" refers to a low-grade but constant inflammatory state in the body that is often due to dietary and other lifestyle factors. If such "silent inflammation" persists and progresses, it can predispose people to a variety of chronic inflammatory conditions that affects morbidity (overall health and well-being) as well as increasing the risk of potentially threatening outcomes.

Fish Oil — Friend or Foe? Debate it in Dearborn

The fish oil debate: Great brain medicine, or just an expensive placebo?
If you compare mental health records from Japan with those from nearly all other developed countries, you'll come across a glaring distinction — Japan has one of the lowest rates of bipolar disorder in the civilized world; and the lowest among high-income countries. The question is, why?

AtlasPROfilax is a neuromuscular technique that focuses on the deepest layer of neck muscles — the suboccipital muscles- that surrounds and stabilizes the head joints (base of skull, atlas vertebra and axis vertebra).

By ICIM member Ross Hauser MD: Platelet rich plasma for treating joint pain
When I'm interviewing people living with pain, I always start by asking the same questions in the same order: How did your pain start? Tell me the entire story from the beginning. Where exactly is the pain, etc? Then the last question is always: "tell me very specifically how this pain impacts your quality of life?"

Will human beings soon stop bathing?
Alliance for Natural Health
And instead use pro-biotics for the skin? Meanwhile, must we try to kill every germ on us, good or bad, with triclosan? The New York Times Magazine recently ran a story about a fascinating new product, a spray called AO+ Refreshing Cosmetic Mist, from a small biotech company AOBiome. The spray contains billions of cultivated Nitrosomonas eutropha, an ammonia-oxidizing bacteria. AOBiome scientists believe these bacteria act as a kind of pro-biotic for the skin. Once applied, they become a built-in cleanser, deodorant, anti-inflammatory, and immune booster by feeding on the ammonia in our sweat.

Lime juice and 8 other natural ways to quit smoking
Compelling reasons to stop smoking far outnumber effective ways to do so. Even with recent revelations that tobacco is contaminated with the highly carcinogenic radioisotope polonium-210, the addictive hold it maintains on millions of smokers worldwide who already know it causes premature death and cancer is far more powerful than the desire for self-preservation, it would seem. This is why effective, natural interventions for smoking cessation are so needed today and why we are excited to report on a new study involving a solution that can be found not at your local pharmacy, but at your local grocer's fruit stand.
