By ICIM member Michael Guravich MD: Psychosomatic energetic therapy
HolisticMD
In modern times we are faced with many different challenges to overcoming chronic disease. So the question arises, how do we heal? True healing is achieved when the root cause of disease is determined and the underlying conflicts within the body are resolved. Promoting harmony between the body and mind is an essential component of this process. Many systems of medicine throughout history have recognized the critical importance of the connection between mental emotional well-being and the health of the physical body.

By ICIM member Kelly Hassberger ND: What are the benefits of a 'cleanse' program and do you need to do one?
Grand Rapids Natural Health
There are many misconceptions out there about detoxification and cleanse programs. It doesn't help that these two terms are often used interchangeably. On top of this, there are many different programs out there to choose from and it is hard to know which to choose. I want to explore the term cleansing and detoxification a bit and allow you to understand why I think cleansing could be a healthy part of everyone's routine.

By ICIM member Paul Jaconello MD: A potent weapon against influenza
Jaconello Health Centre for Nutritional and Preventive Medicine
Studies of human CD8(+) T cells reveal the potential for novel effector mechanisms in resistance to infections. People who have more virus-killing immune cells, either don't get sick or experience only mild flu symptoms. Therefore by stimulating your body to produce more CD8(+) T cells that are required for immunity, you may be protected from getting the flu or at least from having severe symptoms.

Breast cancer and ISIS: Beyond surgical strikes and chemical weapons
The Huffington Post
The metaphors of cancer and terrorism are easily interchangeable. Breast cancer is a terrorist organization of cells, threatening mass casualties in the rest of my body. ISIS is a cancerous growth, metastasizing at an alarming rate. But waging war on cancer and ISIS do little to address root causes or prevent the conditions that cause these terrors in the first place. The proposed Western "cures" to these curses come with the burden of added suffering.

By ICIM member Cathie Ann Lippman MD: Is the scrutinization of GMO's too late?
Cathie Lippman, MD
On Oct. 15 the USDA approved the deregulation of Dow's herbicide Enlist Duo, a toxic blend of 2,4-D and glyphosate, "for use on corn and soybeans genetically engineered to tolerate both 2,4-D and glyphosate — even though the pesticide has been linked to immune system cancers, Parkinson's disease, endocrine disruption, and reproductive problems."

Aging brains aren't necessarily declining brains
Medical Xpress
For years, conventional wisdom held that growing older tends to be bad news for brains. Past behavioral data largely pointed to loss in cognitive — that is, thinking — abilities with age, including poorer memory and greater distractibility. Physical measures of brain structure also showed atrophy, or loss of volume, in many regions with age.

ICIM Book of the Week


New book coming soon by ICIM member Paul Lynn MD: 'Healthy Body, Faulty Medicine'
San Francisco Preventive Medical Group
Paul Lynn writes: "I thought that this was a good point to write this book, because research is beginning to show that some of the medications prescribed and heavily marketed to patients are actually becoming more of a danger than an aid to better health. Patients aren't aware of real alternative benefits that are available, and they don't realize the risks involved with the direction we have been going."

A Personal Story


ICIM member Todd Pesek MD's story
Great Lakes Health Institute
I was raised in the mountains of Appalachia in rural Pennsylvania and embraced my calling of holistic health and wellness from an early age. My passion and purpose began with childhood rambles in the surrounding woods, usually with my dog and, later, my sister, exploring and gathering comfort and learning truth from my elders and from the Earth.
