Health freedom
ICIM    Share   Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
"Unless we put medical freedom into the Constitution, the time will come when medicine will organize into an undercover dictatorship to restrict the art of healing to one class of men and deny equal privileges to others; the Constitution of the Republic should make a special privilege for medical freedoms as well as religious freedom." — Attributed to Dr. Benjamin Rush, a signer of the Declaration of Independence

The cockroaches are dying off
John Parks Trowbridge    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
You've got to be kidding — cockroach fossils date from about 300 million years ago, they're survivors. How could ancient bugs that have survived every calamity in world history be dying off now? Okay, we're kidding. The cockroach "design" has been pretty perfect through the ages. That's testimony to something that can adapt to changing conditions and still come out a winner. Unfortunately, "modern medicine" doesn't adapt well to changing conditions — and it's losing almost every challenge. More

Bernui Dr. Michael Bernui explains why he chose a path in integrative medicine: "As a child I watched my father, a dentist, help many people. He had a special relationship with his patients. They were often very appreciative that he helped them. Whether it was getting someone out of pain, taking care of their routine dental needs, or giving them a cosmetic result that improved their self-image, just his interaction with them made a memorable impact on their lives."

California voters reject labeling genetically altered food
Reuters    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
California voters rejected a ballot measure that would have made the state the first in the nation to require special labeling of foods with genetically modified ingredients. The measure was defeated 53 percent to 47 percent, according to final results. Proposition 37, also known as the "Right to Know" initiative, was supported by more than 60 percent of likely voters in early polls. But backing for the measure crumbled in the face of a $46 million ad blitz funded largely by Monsanto, PepsiCo and other food and agriculture companies. More

The truth about hormone therapy
The Wall Street Journal, submitted by ICIM speaker Phyllis Bronson, Ph.D.    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Mainstream medicine has been given a wake-up call on a matter critical to the health of 65 million women in the U.S. At issue are the options for treatment of menopause symptoms that cause significant health problems for women in midlife as their bodies produce fewer hormones. It doesn't seem like a complicated problem, given advances in medical science. Yet hormone-replacement therapy has become a textbook example of how special interests, a confused medical establishment and opportunists can combine to complicate the issue and deny patients access to safe and effective treatments.

Sex-dependent changes in cerebellar thyroid hormone-dependent gene expression following perinatal exposure to thimerosal in rats
IBCMT    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Mammalian brain development is regulated by the action of thyroid hormone on target genes. We have previously shown that the perinatal exposure to thimerosal exerts neurotoxic effects on the developing cerebellum and is associated with a decrease in cerebellar D2 activity, which could result in local brain T3 deficiency. The objective of this study was to expand on our initial observation of altered cerebellar gene expression following perinatal thimerosal exposure and to examine additional genes that include both thyroid hormone-dependent as well as other genes critical for cerebellar development in male and female neonates exposed perinatally to thimerosal.

Saffron in the treatment of patients with mild to moderate Alzheimer's disease
Journal of Clinical Pharmacy and Therapeutics    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Saffron was found to be effective similar to donepezil in the treatment of mild-to-moderate Alzheimer's disease after 22 weeks. The frequency of adverse events was similar between saffron extract and donepezil groups with the exception of vomiting, which occurred significantly more frequently in the donepezil group. More

Healing with Language: Communication is Redundant
SCS Matters    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
People communicate in a wide variety of verbal and nonverbal ways simultaneously. It is impossible not to communicate because all behavior contains both explicit and implicit messages. These messages may complement or contradict one another. When verbal and nonverbal messages complement each other, the communicator is said to be "congruent." A lack of congruence indicates some kind of internal conflict in the speaker, often between the conscious and unconscious or below-conscious minds.

A patient might say he or she is "fine," while his or her tone of voice, posture and energy all communicate something else entirely. A woman was being given the suggestion for a solution to a presenting problem. After everything had been explained carefully, she had a slight negative head shake when asked if she were going to follow through with the suggestions. Even though her verbal response was, "yes," her nonverbal message, including her tone of voice, her posture and her energy clearly communicated her real answer. Regardless of her words, the implicit message was the honest one.

Our bodies — right down to the cellular level — are influenced by what we think, and what we think is influenced by what we do with our bodies. Pay attention to those times when you are feeling or thinking something you wish you were not. When we communicate with others, we touch them with our physical body, but we also touch them with our language — the way we use certain words — and with our energy or intention. If we feel hurried, we communicate that. If we feel stressed, we communicate that. If we are relaxed or peaceful, bored or interested, patient or annoyed, anxious or trusting — these all get communicated.

Communication is like an iceberg — most of the substance is below the surface. You can learn to "read" the information that usually lies below the level of conscious awareness by watching posture and gestures and listening to changes in speech patterns, especially pitch, tone and rate.

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.
