Letter from Dr. David Nebbeling
ICIM    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Nebbeling "I was introduced to the alternative use of steroid hormones for men and women in 1987. I have seen the evolution from injectables to pills, creams, troches, vaginal suppositories, pellets and the testing evolve from serum into urine and salivary. I grew in my experiential knowledge and patient success stories. I attended a lecture by Lisa Everett — daughter of Harry Everett the first pharmacist to compound bio-identical hormones — in Kansas City in 2005. She challenged my long held beliefs on bio-identical hormones and eventually changed the way I prescribe and order labs for testing. Leave your past experience at the door and attend with an open mind the newly revised lecture on bio-identical hormones by Dr. Lisa Everett." More

US court partially rejects Myriad gene patent claims
Reuters via CNBC    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
A federal appeals court partially ruled against Myriad Genetics Inc. over the biotechnology company's effort to patent two genes linked to breast and ovarian cancer. A divided panel of the U.S. Federal Circuit Court of Appeals in Washington, D.C., upheld a 2010 ruling by a Manhattan federal judge that Myriad's claims directed to "comparing" or "analyzing" DNA sequences could not be patented. But it also ruled in favor of Myriad in backing the company's right to patent "isolated" DNA molecules, and its method for cancer screening via changes in "cell growth rates of novel, man-made transformed cells."

Healing With Language: Rate of speech
ICIM    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
In previous language tips, we have discussed matching and mirroring the nonverbal behavior of your clients or patients, with emphasis on being similar rather than identical to avoid the sense of mimicking the other. We also suggested matching the sense-based vocabulary of others so that they can better see what you mean, hear what you are saying or get a grip on your ideas.

To allow things to be completely easy for you, in terms of rapport and understanding, remember that people speak at the rate they can comprehend language. If you speak too quickly for slow talkers, they will not be able to process everything you are saying. If you speak too slowly for a quick talkers, they will fill in the perceived gaps between your words with their own ideas.

While our own natural rate of speech is a fairly ingrained habit, as you begin matching the other person's rate of speech, because what was unfamiliar becomes familiar with practice, soon changing your rate of speech will seem natural. Fortunately, even small changes in the direction of the rate of speech of others makes a big difference.

For fun, when you watch TV news shows, pay attention to the rate of delivery of the principal anchors. They tend to speak at a medium rate — neither rapidly nor slowly — as that rate is comfortable for the most people. Like Goldilocks preferring the chair, the bed and the porridge that was just right, rate of speech that is just right is a wonderful way you are saying, "I am present with you. I am not going anywhere. I am right here to help you find ways you can be well."
