Trial to Assess Chelation Therapy
IBCMT    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The Trial to Assess Chelation Therapy, investigating the chelation therapy ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid in coronary heart disease patients, is once again the subject of controversy. The $30 million TACT, sponsored by the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine and the National Institutes of Health, was stopped in 2008 while "allegations of impropriety" were investigated. These centered on concerns over the patient-consent process. The trial was restarted in 2009. More

Genetically modified food may lead to obesity
Fast Company    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The jury is still out on whether genetically modified food is dangerous — though the genetic engineers discussed in this post make a pretty compelling case for its shortcomings. A new study suggests that even if GM food isn't directly making us sick, it might be causing us to gain weight — which then makes you sick. More

Too much medical care?
The New York Times    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The United States spends about $8,000 per person annually on healthcare — that's about 50 percent more than Norway and Switzerland. In the United States, hospital stays are far more expensive than those in other countries, averaging about $18,000 per discharge, compared with less than $10,000 in Sweden, Australia, New Zealand, France and Germany. But what do these numbers really mean to the average patient? What's going on in the doctor's offices and hospitals around the country to create such bloated spending? More

Healing With Language: Sense-based vocabulary
ICIM    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
  • I see what you mean.
  • I hear you.
  • I catch your drift.
People, including your friends, relatives and clients or patients, use sense-based language to communicate. Matching another person's use of sense-based language is an important part of rapport — featured in ICIM's July 20 issue. Those who need to see something to be convinced, for example, may not respond when they hear it.

As with other language patterns, people are often not aware, but, in general, people respond more quickly to their favorite sensory language. People who process most of their information visually will use more visual vocabulary than auditory language or kinesthetic (touch, smell, taste, and emotions). All people tend to respond more favorably with those whose sense-based vocabulary is most like their own.

Most people can, of course, "translate" from one sensory system to another. The question is how quickly and easily they do it. In settings involving stress, as can be the case with health-related issues, just remember that the other will hear you more accurately and remember what you have said longer when you use his or her favorite sense-based vocabulary to communicate.

It is easy to pay attention to sense-based vocabulary during any conversations you have, and particularly during a formal intake procedure. To clarify: Do your best to use the most frequently used sense. The words will actually resonate with the other individual. We also have a least familiar sense — one that can irritate us and damage rapport.

Because you already have a favorite sense, matching the favorite sense of others of may take some practice if it is different from yours, but you'll find it worth the investment. Notice if this language tip sounds good to you, and if you are glad to be someone others are quite comfortable around. For those of us who want to help and heal, it's just the right thing to do.

Send your questions about communication to Joel P. Bowman or Debra Basham, co-developers of SCS Matters, LLC. We will provide answers to those for you.

Diets high in salt could deplete calcium in the body
University of Alberta via Science Daily    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The scientific community has always wanted to know why people who eat high-salt diets are prone to developing medical problems such as kidney stones and osteoporosis. Medical researchers may have solved this puzzle through their work with animal lab models and cells. When sodium leaves a body, it takes calcium along with it, creating risk for kidney stones and osteoporosis. More
