Interview with ICIM member Terry Chappell: Considering the past and promise of chelation therapy
I first came across complementary integrative medicine through my wife, who was a registered nurse doing graduate work in psychiatric nursing. Her training involved Lamaze natural childbirth, doing things as naturally as possible and some nutritional support. That was my first real contact with it. I saw what you could do to relieve pain and stress by nondrug methods. I decided to learn about that. After that, my wife and I did some service in Appalachia. We found that many of the people there were suffering from pain and depression. They were prescribed pain pills and antidepressants, and were not getting anywhere. I looked for some alternatives to help them and they responded very well. They were very interested in it and got me excited about the whole process.

By ICIM speaker Bruce Shelton MD: Where did HEEL and the Sanum (Pleo) companies go?
HEEL, which was based in Albuquerque, became involved with several lawsuits related to U.S. administrative law. Their parent company in Germany chose to make a several million dollar settlement and actually withdraw from doing business directly in the U.S., just being satisfied to service the other 59 countries they serve worldwide from their big headquarters facility in Baden Baden Germany.

Nothing is solid: This is the world of quantum physics
Earth. We are one.
Nobel Prize winning physicists have proven beyond a doubt that the physical world is one large sea of energy that flashes into and out of being in milliseconds, over and over again. They have proven that thoughts are what put together and hold together this ever-changing energy field into the "objects" that we see. So why do we see a person instead of a flashing cluster of energy?

A Personal Story

ICIM member Marina Johnson
I grew up in Orange, Texas, a small town 100 miles east of Houston. I never even saw a woman doctor until I was 25 so it never occurred to me to become a doctor. Like many women in medicine, I got into medicine through another profession. In my case, it was pharmacy. While I loved pharmacy, for me it was simply the beginning of my journey to better understand the world within each of us.

I have been practicing as an endocrinologist since 1983. When I completed my medical training at UCLA and USC, I did not plan to practice other than traditional endocrinology. My focus on natural hormone replacement simply evolved from my intense curiosity about the human body. The more I have studied it, the more I am in awe of what a perfect system we have been given.

Clinical relationships key to treatment of alcohol abuse
Medical Xpress
New research from the University of Adelaide highlights the complex needs of people being treated for alcohol problems, in particular the value they place on long-term relationships with trusted healthcare professionals. For the first time, researchers in the University's School of Psychology have sought to better understand the experiences of patients being treated for an "alcohol use disorder," and what they consider important to the quality of their own care.
