Eventbrite - Sex Lies and Hormones: How Hormones affect every System of the Body Hormones affect how we think and act, and they make us look and feel good. However, hormones are not straightforward. The experience of symptom and treatment flows and varies in each person's experience. "We're not going to dumb this down or take a prescriptive approach," says Program Chairman Ron Casselberry, M.D. "Our goal with this meeting is to provide detailed scientific evidence and energetic debate in an effort to explore this fascinating dynamic."

Join ICIM from Sept. 19-23 in Cleveland for a conference on hormones unlike any you have experienced. Of course, you will also be treated to ICIM's legendary hospitality, food, warm community atmosphere and a special incentive — free tickets to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. More


Managing moods without meds
Phyllis Bronson, Ph. D.    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
They sulk, they pout and, on occasion, lash out. The actions of some teenagers can bewilder parents, at least those who can't recall their own adolescent misery. And though the dilemma of dealing with a "moody" teen isn't a new one, some seem to think the situation has intensified. Dr. Phyllis Bronson knows a little something about mood swings — and, thanks to her doctorate in neurobiochemistry, the biological basis for them. Bronson will share her knowledge as a speaker at ICIM's Sex Lies and Hormones Conference Sept 19-23. More

Shock study: Chemotherapy can backfire, make cancer worse by triggering tumor growth
New York Daily News    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Long considered the most effective cancer-fighting treatment, chemotherapy may actually make cancer worse, according to a shocking new study. The extremely aggressive therapy, which kills both cancerous and healthy cells indiscriminately, can cause healthy cells to secrete a protein that sustains tumor growth and resistance to further treatment. Researchers in the United States made the "completely unexpected" finding while seeking to explain why cancer cells are so resilient inside the human body when they are easy to kill in the lab. More

GMOs and the legislative battlefield
Alliance for Natural Health    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The House was scheduled to consider a continuing resolution on the current farm bill in an attempt to trigger a conference committee, which would have allowed the biotech industry to sneak in their GMO amendments unnoticed. Messages poured in protesting this illegitimate procedural move, and at the last minute the House leadership decided to pull the CR from the floor agenda because there weren't enough votes to pass it.

Microchip-laden drugs given FDA approval    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article

Healing With Language: The 'convincer strategy'
ICIM    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The confirmation metaprogram, also known as the "convincer strategy" governs the way people decide what is "true." Most people are not consciously aware of their own, let alone those of others. That often causes trouble in relationships. How do you know when someone loves you? How do others know when you love them?

For some people, seeing is believing: They need some kind of visual proof. In interpersonal relationships, that might include, cards, gifts and shared activities involving things seen, like watching a sunset.

For others, it is what they hear: They need to hear certain words said in a certain way, including tone of voice and rate of speech, possibly — but not limited to — saying "I love you."

And for some others, it is what is felt: being touched in a certain way or a "heart connection" of shared emotion, such as the birth of a child or grandchild, or going on a honeymoon.

In love relationships, without consciously trying to do so, when the relationship begins, people communicate in ways that satisfies all three of the major convincer strategies. A few months or years down the line, however, most people give to the other only what they themselves like to receive. When that happens, the other person can be convinced the something missing is love.

Essentially the same thing happens in doctor-patient relationships. Your clients or patients will be convinced that you care about them and have the "right stuff" to help them with their problems and will follow your direction only to the degree you have convinced them that it will be in their best interest. In most cases, you won't have the kind of extended interaction that would allow you to be certain of each person's convincer strategy, but you can quite easily satisfy all three of the major strategies.

Give them something they can see: A prescription, written instructions, a handout or something else visible.

Tell them what's important in a way that will be easy for them to remember: Use your most caring tone of voice and say, "The three most important things for you to remember are X, Y and Z."

Touch them appropriately. A handshake, a touch on the arm or a pat on the back provides an anchor of safety for those to whom what is felt is most important.

While you are thinking about what a difference this makes for the others in your life, think about your own convincer strategy. What is absolutely necessary for you to know that someone loves you? That a particular product or service will meet your needs? That you can trust someone with something important to you, such as your health? You might be surprised at what you learn about yourself — and others in the process.

Allergies linked to decreased tumor risk
Natural Standard    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
A new study suggests that people who have allergies may have a reduced risk of developing a type of brain tumor called glioma. Researchers measured levels of immunoglobulin E, antibodies involved in the allergic response, and considered common allergens such as dust mites, plant and tree pollen, mold and pet hair in particular. The results suggested that patients whose blood samples tested positive for IgE had a decreased risk of glioma. More
