Sent to us by ICIM member Robban Sica MD, passed on from her daughter: Poem for ICIM by Jack Kerouac
ICIM
Here's to the crazy ones.
The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers.
The round pegs in the square holes.
The ones who see things differently.
They're not fond of rules.
And they have no respect for the status quo.
You can praise them, disagree with them, quote them,
disbelieve them, glorify or vilify them. disbelieve them, glorify or vilify them.
About the only thing you can't do is ignore them.
Because they change things.
They invent. They imagine.
They heal. They explore. They create. They inspire.
They push the human race forward.
Maybe they have to be crazy.
How else can you stare at an empty canvas and see a work of art?
Or sit in silence and hear a song that’s never been written?
Or gaze at a red planet and see a laboratory on wheels?
While some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius.
Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world,
are the ones who do. – Jack Kerouac

Update from Robert Rowen in Sierra Leone, treating Ebola with ozone
Dear family, friends, colleagues and everyone in my life,

First, I want to give a deeply felt thank you to everyone who has contributed to the humanitarian mission now under way with collaboration between Dr. Howard Robins and myself. In just three weeks, well over $30,000 has been received in his Rotary Club's Foundation, inclusive of donations from overseas. Without your very generous contributions, we could not have pulled off acquiring everything we needed and the cost of transport. Our airline has gone out of its way to see to it that the 24 boxes of cargo will be with us on our flight into Sierra Leone. We leave in just a few hours. Even my mother (92 years old) has realized the threat the entire world faces and has blessed me on this trip after a rough start for her. Thank you mom!

Recommended by ICIM member John Parks Trowbridge MD: California Prop. 46, inspired by tragedy, pits doctors against lawyers
Kaiser Health News
Troy and Alana Pack had spent the day at their neighborhood Halloween party in Danville. Ten-year-old Troy went as a baseball player, and 7-year-old Alana was a good witch. In the afternoon, they changed out of their costumes and set out for a walk with their mother. Destination: Baskin Robbins 31 Flavors. "Alana, she liked anything with chocolate," says their father, Bob Pack. "Troy, for sure, bubble gum ice cream, because he liked counting the bubble gums that he would get." Bob Pack stayed home. His family made it only half a mile down the road before his phone rang. "I received a call from a neighbor screaming there'd been an accident. And I raced down there," Pack said.

Opinion by consumer advocate Tim Bolen: Autism world — Quit targeting mainstream media
The Bolen Report
In a book called "The Propaganda Model," Edward S. Herman and Noam Chomsky proposed a concrete model for the filtering processes (biases) of mainstream media, especially in the United States, called the propaganda model. They tested this empirically and presented extensive quantified evidence supporting the model. Through an extensive analysis of the financial roots that drive American news media as well as an in-depth look at coverage of specific news events, Herman and Chomsky demonstrate that mainstream news content represents the political and economic interests of the state and other varied powerful corporate entities.

Recommended by ICIM member Jim Smith DO: An open letter to all US healthcare professionals
As a frontline healthcare provider, you play an essential role in protecting the health and well-being of our nation. In light of the recent presentation of an Ebola-positive patient in Texas, we wanted to remind all healthcare professionals that simple steps can be taken to prevent the spread of this disease. You can contribute to our country’s response by being ready to detect a potentially infected patient; protect yourself, your colleagues, and other patients from exposure; and respond with appropriate patient care.

By ICIM member David Getoff CCN, ND: In search of unknown facts
This is David Getoff and this recording is regarding our society's huge abundance — although it rarely gets recognized by those who exhibit it. Much of it, but not all, could also go under the simple heading of a severe deficiency of common sense.

92 days until ICIM's Members Retreat at Maya Tulum


Join ICIM at our Mexico meeting and get some mental rest: Mental rest and reflection boost learning, study suggests
Medical Xpress
A new study, which may have implications for approaches to education, finds that brain mechanisms engaged when people allow their minds to rest and reflect on things they've learned before may boost later learning. Scientists have already established that resting the mind, as in daydreaming, helps strengthen memories of events and retention of information. In a new twist, researchers at The University of Texas at Austin have shown that the right kind of mental rest, which strengthens and consolidates memories from recent learning tasks, helps boost future learning.

ICIM Book of the Week


New book by ICIM member Derrick Lonsdale MD: A nutritional approach to a revised model for medicine
Can a simple change in our diet make all the difference? Are we eating too much sugar? Could the obesity epidemic, diabetes, and a host of other diseases be the result of our present dietary mayhem? Is alternative medicine the answer? These views are proposed in the illuminating book by the longtime physician, who draws attention to the dangers of excessive sugar ingestion that is so widespread today.
