By ICIM member Terry Chappell, MD: A potentially big problem with chemotherapy
He'll be at "Innovation! Meeting Today’s Medical Challenges"
A year ago, there was an important article published in Nature Medicine by the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center that showed a marked increase in a substance called WNT 16B in cancer patients treated with chemo. High levels of this substance decrease the resistance to cancer in previously unaffected cells. This might explain why chemo often helps initially but — if the cancer comes back — it is more difficult to treat the second time.

Don't let Bayer overturn the ban on bee-killing pesticides

SumOfUs.org

From the blog of ICIM member Dale Guyer, MD:
Would you like a tart cherry on top?

He'll be at "Innovation! Meeting Today's Medical Challenges"
As it turns out, cherries are not only delicious with milkshakes but they are also great for pain, inflammation and sleep issues. Tart cherries possess strong antiinflammatory and antioxidant properties — two key items that help alleviate joint pain and neutralize joint damage. It is estimated that 20 tart cherries are equivalent to two ibuprofens.

Diagnostic Face Reading at ICIM
Roger Bezanis will be leading a day-long workshop on Thursday at "Innovation! Meeting Today’s Medical Challenges."
The techniques of Diagnostic Face Reading are so well constructed. They do not invalidate what we know, they explain the holes in what we want to or are trying to know and that are otherwise unanswerable. My daylong class is complemented by a brief "get your feet wet" class from 7-8 p.m. Oct. 10. Come see me and introduce yourself to something understandable and immediately useable. Science is a systematic body of knowledge culled from experimentation and observation. The Science of Diagnostic Face Reading is knowable for those ready to learn.

Cardio Group invites you to lunch Oct. 11 at 'Innovation! Meeting Today's Medical Challenges'
The Cardio Group

The device is concise and offers a lot of information that is necessary for treatment and referring to higher level diagnostics. This is a must have device for any integrative doctor as blood chemistry and blood pressure are simply not enough."
