By ICIM member and speaker John Parks Trowbridge MD: Chelation therapy: Stepping into the next 60 years a historical commentary
Mind-body medicine, a term well known in medicine, has major roots in observations made in the 1960s by one of my lab directors at Stanford, George Solomon, MD. Intensive study of the "relaxation response," "healing touch," "acupuncture," and similar "soft science" technologies has led to widespread acceptance in the medical and lay communities.

Prepare for John Humiston MD's 'End Pain' lecture on addiction: Mechanisms of nicotine dependence
Addiction Science & Clinical Practice
Tobacco smoking causes high rates of mortality and morbidity throughout the world. Despite the availability of smoking cessation medications, maintenance of long-term abstinence is difficult, and most individuals who attempt to quit smoking relapse. Although tobacco smoke contains many substances, researchers and policymakers agree that nicotine is a major cause of tobacco dependence. Understanding the neural substrates of nicotine dependence is essential for the development of more effective antismoking medications than those currently available.

Prepare for Derrick Lonsdale's 'End Pain' lecture on thiamin: How thiamin function interplays with carbohydrate intake
Thiamine requirements for humans are generally expressed as absolute values per day (mg/d) or in relation to total caloric intake. Limited data are available on the relation between thiamine requirements and the intake of carbohydrates. This study was performed to investigate the influence of stepwise increases of carbohydrate intake on the status of thiamine in healthy volunteers under isocaloric conditions. During an adaptation phase of four days, the carbohydrate intake of twelve healthy volunteers (6 male, 6 female) was 55 percent of total energy intake.

  Best Way to Sell Supplements

“Outsourcing” is more than a buzzword. Learn how it can transform your supplement sales, reduce headaches in your office and improve your bottom line. These days patients demand convenience and value, and now you can deliver without doing any of the work!

By ICIM member Elizabeth Vaughan MD: Ladies: Progesterone is your friend
Today, confusion swirls about whether supplementing natural progesterone, a hormone made by women's adrenal glands and ovaries, is safe. Some of the confusion arises from incorrect interpretation and exaggeration of the original NIH Women's Health Initiative studies. In 2002, NIH abruptly and prematurely stopped the arm of the study in which women were taking Prempro® (Premarina/conjugated equine estrogens/CEE) and Provera®/medroxyprogesterone acetate/MPA) combined.

Prepare for Robert Rowen MD's 'End Pain' lecture on ozone
Ozone gas discovered in the mid-nineteenth century is a molecule consisting of three atoms of oxygen in a dynamically unstable structure due to the presence of mesomeric states. Although O3 has dangerous effects, yet researchers believe it has many therapeutic effects. Ozone therapy has been utilized and heavily studied for more than a century. Its effects are proven, consistent, safe and with minimal and preventable side effects.

Practice Management

A compounding dilemma: New laws and regulations threaten compounded drugs and practitioner freedom
by Gretchen DuBeau, Esq.
If you're a physician, the federal government thinks that your prescription pad needs a cosigner. New congressional legislation — strategically named the Drug Quality and Security Act of 2013, which amends current law, the Food Drug and Cosmetic Act (we'll refer to it simply as "the Act") covers compounded medications and injects the FDA into the patient–physician relationship. It seems likely that, once the FDA completes its regulations concerning the new law, practitioners will be increasingly limited in what medications they can prescribe.

The connection between dental and low back pain
International Center for Nutritional Research, Inc.
Walter was in his early 30s when he was referred to our office in 1993. Walter presented with low back pain that prevented him from working. Walter was treated with conventional medical therapy. He received a cortisone injection which masked the low back pain for six months. The second cortisone injection lasted only six weeks and the third one had not effect at all. Walter was scheduled for low back surgery when his brother-in-law referred him to our office.
