Innovation! Meeting Today's Medical Challenges
ICIM
At ICIM’s October meeting, “Innovation! Meeting Today's Medical Challenges” in Columbus, Ohio, there will be an emphasis on the history and future of immunotherapy. Workshops will focus on the application of clinical immunology in a family practice setting, the role of vaccines in the immune system, and winning the war against cancer. As we explore primary care oncology in the U.S., we will learn about innovative tools and recent breakthroughs in conventional oncology, as well as clinical evidence and observations about the outcomes of integrative therapies.

Oxytocin enhances hippocampal spike transmission by modulating fast-spiking interneurons

Nature
Neuromodulatory control by oxytocin is essential to a wide range of social, parental and stress-related behaviors. Autism spectrum disorders are associated with deficiencies in oxytocin levels and with genetic alterations of the oxytocin receptor. Thirty years ago, Mühlethaler et al. found that oxytocin increases the firing of inhibitory hippocampal neurons but it remains unclear how elevated inhibition could account for the ability of oxytocin to improve information processing in the brain. This provides insight into how a diffusely delivered neuromodulator can improve the performance of neural circuitry that requires synapse specificity and millisecond precision.

Homeoprophylaxis: A nontoxic alternative for promoting wellness

By Dr. Janet Levatin
TIMC is launching a new program called homeoprophylaxis, a gentle, nontoxic way to help our children stay healthy and less likely to contract infections. Instead of injecting bits of bacteria, inactivated viruses and other toxic ingredients, HP utilizes homeopathic nosodes given under orally. Several studies have demonstrated HP to be as effective as conventional vaccination, but without the toxicity.

Autism: The alarming increase

The explosion of the number of cases of autism is still a mystery. We are recognizing that people on the spectrum seem to be unable to detoxify toxins as efficiently as those people who are "neurotypical" — without autism or other major neurological disorders. Many scientists and doctors are concerned about the number of toxic chemicals we are now exposed to in our environment. Where are these toxins coming from?

Everyone may benefit from chelation

No one is exempt. That is right. From babies to preschoolers, students, young people, adults, baby boomers and grandparents, all of us have been exposed to toxic metals such as lead, arsenic, cadmium and mercury. Toxic metals, if not identified and treated, can lead to heart disease, hypertension, cancer, neurological problems, allergies, chronic fatigue, diabetes, arthritis, asthma, kidney problems, auto-immune diseases and even death. Let's look at each of these metals examining their sources and how they might affect one's health.

Music, your mind and anti-aging treatment

B.B. King is only one example of artists who retain the mental sharpness to play virtuosic music into their 80s. But how do musicians like King keep their minds so strong with the passing years? According to research, part of the answer may lie in the music they've played for their entire lives. As you go through anti-aging treatment, music may be a valuable tool when it comes to keeping your mind sharp and healthy.

Healing with language: Embedded commands
SCS Matters
At some point in your practice, you may have found that you have told your clients or patients exactly what they needed to do to achieve better health and they failed to follow your instructions. While there is no guaranteed way to persuade people to do what's best every time, you can increase your chances of having others do the things that are best for them by phrasing what you say as an embedded command.

How to grow sunflower greens

Kitchen Apparel
Normally when you say sunflower, most people will think of either the big beautiful yellow flowers or the perfect little black seeds that taste great roasted with salt. But there is another aspect to the sunflower plant that most people have not heard of before: sunflower greens. Bright, crunchy and green, they are almost reminiscent of a cross between iceberg lettuce and cucumbers except these little greens are packed full of nutrients.

Listen to the Best of ICIM: Testosterone Deficiency in Young Men by Ty Vincent MD
Testosterone deficiency has become known as an increasingly common problem among middle aged and older men. The risks of metabolic syndrome, cardiovascular disease, premature aging and death associated with testosterone deficiency are recently demonstrated in the literature. Young men are ignored as being at risk for testosterone deficiency in spite of epidemiological research showing a steady decline in average testosterone levels for men of all ages. Older teens and men in their twenties are being diagnosed with hypogonadism at a growing rate and the causes of this are not yet clear.

Science as social control: Political paralysis and the genetics agenda
GreenMedInfo.com
Over the last twenty years, human genetic research has convinced the public that genetic factors often underly disease and human behavior. Yet this genomic research project, which is one of the most expensive science programs ever conceived, has almost entirely failed to identify the important genes that geneticists predicted or to account for the occurrence of human illness.

Family medicine: If it was easy, it wouldn't be fun
Dr. Synonymous
Dr. A. Patrick Jones writes, "The complexity of the human condition is remarkable. Identifying strategies to engage people about their life and health for mutually beneficial purposes is a daily challenge. We will never fully know at the atomic level exactly what is happening, but we often seem to get close enough for people to recover from disease. I'm amazed at the make-up of human biology. I'm amazed at the ways each individual relates to their health and well-being. The complexity is part of the fun."

With a few questions, pharmacists can make Ramadan's fast safe for Muslim patients
Medical Xpress
Nearly a quarter of the world's population is celebrating Ramadan but many of them are fasting in observance of the Muslim holy month at unnecessary risk to their health. For those with chronic illnesses or prescriptions with meal-based schedules, long stretches without eating or drinking can be particularly dangerous. But it doesn't have to be that way, according to Mohamed Amin, a UW-Madison School of Pharmacy graduate student.

Allergies?
The Galveston Daily News via The American Board of Integrative Holistic Medicine
Itchy, watery eyes? Sneezing? Nose watering like a faucet? This is a time of year with lots of pollens in the air. So what can be done? Standard medical therapy includes antihistamines and nasal steroid sprays. These can be very useful but sometimes are not always effective and may cause side effects such as sedation. A number of natural approaches can also be useful.
