Study: Hormone use by postmenopausal women keeps dropping
USA Today    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The number of U.S. women popping postmenopausal hormone pills didn't just drop after one big study a decade ago — it kept dropping through at least 2010, a large new study shows. As of 2009-2010, just 4.7 percent of women over age 40 said they were taking the hormones — estrogen or estrogen plus progestin — at least in pill form, says the study of 10,107 women published in Obstetrics & Gynecology.

Business brief: 'Good' employee turnover
ICIM    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Turnover is the top cost to most companies. However, there is a good kind of turnover. How much does it cost to keep an employee that is an emotional drain on the system? You know, the employee who is never happy, frequently complains, starts rumors, triangulates, talks behind your back — you get the idea. Companies will retain these employees because on the surface, it appears they are doing their job. Simply completing the tasks of one's job is not adequate in today's competitive market place. More

Looking for patients with gadolinium or West Nile damage
ICIM    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
An activist publisher, ProPublica, is trying to collect information on patients harmed by medical procedures. They have posted a questionnaire for patients to fill out. If you know of anyone that has been injured by gadolinium, encourage them to fill out the questionnaire. Many patients who have been injured can do little about it, other than tell the world. This questionnaire provides a channel, which may result in a positive effect, and is considerably easier than starting your own website.

Our exhibitor Bio-Stasis is looking for patients who have West Nile disease. They would like to provide their product for free to those people in the hope and expectation that it will have dramatic results. Please contact Larry Griffin at For more information, visit

Sugar vs. corn syrup: Sweeteners at center of bitter food fight
Reuters    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
A group of food companies that includes conglomerate Cargill Inc. has sued a sugar industry trade group, claiming high fructose corn syrup is being unfairly maligned by promoters of "natural" sugar. The battle is one for consumer hearts, minds and stomachs. Purveyors of corn syrup say their sales are in jeopardy because of misleading claims by sugar-makers, while the sugar industry alleges false advertising by corn companies that try to market their sweetener as no different than sugar.

Healing with Language: Metaphors
ICIM    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Although metaphors are typically associated with literature, stories are inherently metaphorical, and metaphors can be healing. Simply telling your clients or patients what they need to do often creates resistance, so when you want to change someone's attitude or behavior, a metaphor is the best way to do that. Especially when the story is relevant, people will listen attentively.

Metaphors don't have to be fancy to be effective. Children may respond well to stories about plants, animals and even rocks in conversation about health matters, but adults — most of them, at least — prefer stories about people, especially people who had similar problems and found a way to solve them.
  • "Last year I had a patient who also had severe back pain and was contemplating surgery. She decided to give XYZ a chance, and it was able to alleviate her pain. After just six treatments, she ..."
  • "Mesotherapy is a treatment you might not have read much about, but it has helped a number of people who had the same problem you have been experiencing. Within weeks, many people have reported ..."
Encourage your clients or patients to visit the Imagine Healing website and other websites where they can read about other people who have recovered and gone on to have good lives. Supplementing your prescribed treatment plan with relevant stories helps your clients or patients focus on the value of what you have to offer rather than simply on the costs associated with treatment.

Send your questions about communication to Joel P. Bowman or Debra Basham, co-developers of SCS Matters, LLC. We will provide answers to those for you.

Really? Some plants can filter airborne chemicals
The New York Times    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
According to the Environmental Protection Agency, the levels of air pollutants inside homes can far exceed the levels outside, thanks to household cleaning products, central heating and cooling systems, and other indoor sources.
