By ICIM member and Program Chairman Simon Yu MD: Battlefield acupuncture: St. Louis and Chicago Energy Medicine Conferences
St. Louis and Chicago Energy Medicine Conferences cover the cutting edge of science based alternative and integrative medicine. These conferences are individually unique and cover the broader spectrum of energy medicine. I highly recommend you and my colleagues to investigate both conferences to give you a jump start for the future of medicine: Energy Medicine for Curing the Incurable by Measuring the Immeasurable.

By ICIM member Robert Rowen MD: Rapid resolution of hemorrhagic fever (Ebola) in Sierra Leone with ozone therapy
Ebola virus disease has ravaged three countries in West Africa. The mortality rate is extremely high, and it is perceived not only as threat to all of Africa but to the entire world. There is no known treatment to date other than administration of convalescent blood or experimental monoclonal antibodies, which both often fail. Ozone therapy has been in clinical use for decades and has been found to have physiological effects, which should directly inactivate the virus itself, as well as modulate its damaging effects. We present the scientific background and the possibility of ozone therapy as a cure or prevention for EVD in five consecutive patients.

By ICIM speaker Silvia Binder ND: August newsletter focuses on eye health
The performance of our eyes depends on much more than the eyes, nerve conduction and processing of the brain. As stated so beautifully by Marc Grossman, O.D., L.Ac.: "I believe that eyesight is not an isolated phenomenon but is rooted in our totality. Our being includes our genetic makeup, the food we eat, our work environment and exposure to air borne toxins, as well as our belief systems about ourselves and our world. Each unique individual literally takes in the world through the senses, primarily vision."

Interview with ICIM speaker James Oschman PhD
As an academic scientist, I worked in the fields of cell biology, biophysics and physiology, doing research and teaching at major universities and laboratories in the U.S. and abroad. My specialty was electron microscopy — studying the microscopic structure and function of various kinds of cells and tissues. This was very interesting for about 20 years, but then I developed a back problem, probably from bending over microscopes for long periods. Eventually I found my way to structural integration, and this changed my life.

By ICIM member Terry Chappell MD: Bulging discs in the low back are common
Fifty percent of patients have bulging discs on MRI's. There is no correlation between sciatic pain and bulging discs. Do not get surgery for this problem. It might make matters worse. If you have back pain, several natural therapies can be very effective, such as acupuncture, pain neutralization technique, manipulation, decompression and prolotherapy.
