This October, ICIM will hear Dr. Martin Dayton speak in his lecture titled, "Integrative Oncology for the Non-oncologist in the Outpatient Setting" as part of ICIM's conference, "Innovation! Meeting Today's Medical Challenges." With its rising incidence, cancer is on the way to becoming the No. 1 cause of death in the United States.

A heretic's view of influenza's role in health and disease

We've all been taught that germs are bad and they are lurking around every corner, waiting to invade defenseless humans. Doctors and the media talk about swine flu as though getting the flu is an inevitable catastrophe unless, of course, we are injected with the life saving flu shot. Is all this necessary or is there a different view?

Men, save your testicles (and humanity): Avoid Roundup and GMO/GE Roundup Ready foods

The 2012 Farm Bill is still working its way through the legislature in Washington, D.C. It includes an amendment called the Monsanto Protection Act. The amendment prevents agribusiness giants like Monsanto from being held accountable for any health problems that may arise through genetically modified or genetically engineered seeds. Farmers were told that if they used Monsanto's genetically modified seeds, they would need to spray less of the herbicide/Roundup. False. It hasn't worked out that way.

Here is a simple list of foods that may help people deal with different types of pain.

Ligament injury and healing: An overview of current clinical concepts

Ligament injuries are among the most common causes of musculoskeletal joint pain and disability encountered in primary practice today. Ligament injuries create disruptions in the balance between joint mobility and joint stability, causing abnormal force transmission throughout the joint resulting in damage to other structures in and around the joint. Osteoarthritis, the long-term consequence of non-healed ligament injury, continues to be the most common joint disorder in the world.

Reflections on lycopene and grandma's tomatoes

Dr. Dale Guyer writes, "As a youth, I remember spending a considerable amount of time helping my grandmother in her garden. Everything was organically grown. Such progressive thinking was hardly in vogue at the time but that has changed. Even the 'corporate' grocery stores now have many organic food options."

Healing with language: Conversational postulates
SCS Matters
A conversational postulate is a question asking for yes or no as a response which often presupposes and produces a behavioral response. Think of a behavior that would be good for your patient, then identify a yes/no question that presupposed the desired behavior. If, for example, you ask, "Would you like to change something about that," most people respond by saying what they would like to change instead of answering yes or no.

Your doctor's a jerk: Professionalism extends to the community
MedPage Today
Dr. Sara Stein writes, "This is an interesting dilemma, but honestly, I could use your help. A former neighbor (not a close friend but a pleasant fellow whom I run into less than occasionally) rented a house to a medical student and his family. They seemed reliable enough and signed a four-year lease. Over time, the medical student and the landlord began to feud over who does what. Usually things like landscaping were at issue. Nothing unusual and none of my business."

Fish oil increases risk of prostate cancer?

Examine.com
A new study has been making its rounds online claiming that fish oil causes prostate cancer, and more specifically the claim is that fish oil supplementation causes a 71 percent increase in high-grade prostate cancer. The study in question is one that appears to be a study based off of the SELECT trials, which initially did not find a protective effect of supplementation on prostate cancer, but say an increased risk associated with vitamin E occurred during prolonged follow-up. This led to the current study.

Listen to the Best of ICIM: Neuroactive Peptides in Food: A New Model for the Treatment and Prevention of Eating Disorders by James Greenblatt MD
This presentation will discuss diagnostic distinctions and therapies involved in the treatment of eating disorders. Although anorexia nervosa is a psychiatric illness characterized by severe weight loss from self-starvation, signs or symptoms of vitamin and mineral deficiencies are rarely studied or integrated into treatment. Research from the 1980s has suggested zinc deficiency may play a role in the development of anorexia nervosa — what are the factors that dictate the rare use of zinc therapy in the treatment of AN.

Family medicine: Recapture the dream with direct primary care
Dr. Synonymous
Dr. A. Patrick Jonas writes, "As we move ahead with more direct primary care practices, I hope we in Family Medicine will remain sensitive to the small practice that is a bit "counter-culture." Many are looking at DPC to get away from "meaningless use" of the ACA and piles of administrivia from insurance companies. Many of these physicians are looking for help to stay independent. Some are looking for a loose connection to an organization."

The role of zinc and copper in autism spectrum disorders
Acta Neurobiologue Experimentaus
Autism spectrum disorders are a group of developmental disabilities that can cause significant social, communication and behavioral challenges. Several studies have suggested a disturbance in the copper and zinc metabolism in ASDs. Zinc deficiency, excess Cu levels, and low Zn/Cu ratio are common in children diagnosed with an ASD. The literature also suggests that mercury accumulation may occur as a cause or consequence of metallothionein dysfunction in children diagnosed with an ASD, which may be one of the causes of Zn deficiency.

Listen to the Best of ICIM:The Role of Herbal Medicine in Mental Health by Tieraona Low Dog MD
Mood disorders, particularly depression, have a high rate of co-morbidity with both mental health and medical problems. Depressive disorders are common among patients with chronic medical conditions. Even when appropriately treated, depression recurs in 50 to 70 percent of those affected. Given the side effects of conventional antidepressants, many patients turn to the use of dietary supplements in an attempt to improve their mood and prevent recurrence.

Don't ever be in a food emergency again
DrHyman.com
What is a food emergency? When your blood sugar starts to drop, you are hard-wired to eat anything and everything in sight. To think you can use will power to control your hunger or cravings contradicts the science of how your brain controls your behavior. The more will power you use, the more it backfires. But there is a solution. A simple, practical idea that most of us never think about: planning and bringing food with us.
