ICIM legend John Parks Trowbridge, MD, offers a road map in Chelation Therapy — The Second 60 Years
ICIM    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
ICIM legend John Parks Trowbridge, M.D., offers a road map ahead in his lecture, Chelation Therapy — The Second 60 Years. From the serendipitous discovery that chelation positively affected heart and blood vessel disease patterns, our research has been steady but slow. The most persuasive realization has been the awareness that removal of toxic heavy metals is perhaps the primary mechanism of action. Documented now are clinical improvements with virtually every organ system, including metabolic and endocrine functions. Future studies will likely focus on the best combination of chelating compounds as well as the appropriate time to begin a treatment program. More

As drug industry's influence over research grows, so does potential for bias
The Washington Post    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The billions that drug companies invest in experiments help fund the world's quest for cures. But their aim is not just public health. That money is also part of a high-risk quest for profits, and over the past decade corporate interference has repeatedly muddled the nation's drug science, sometimes with potentially lethal consequences.

A helpful summary of the flu shot issue
ICIM member Cathie Lippman    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
An article from the University of Minnesota states that flu vaccines are not as effective as we have been told. Frankly, I don't recommend them at all for two reasons. The first is we don't know what else is in the vaccine. Vaccines are notorious for containing "inert" ingredients that may actually be toxic, like formaldehyde, as well as containing other organisms — bacteria as well as viruses — that companies don't bother with. Secondly, when a person lives a healthy lifestyle and keeps on hand remedies to treat the flu, they commonly don't get sick or get only a mild case. More

Healing with Language: The map is not the territory
SCS Matters    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Some foundational ideas are underneath neurolinguistic programming. The first of these presuppositions — considered "useful" rather than "true" — is that the "map" or internal representation is not the same as the "territory" of external reality. The expression was coined by Alfred Krozybski in his introduction to general semantics in 1933.

From the standpoint of communication, the problem is when individuals assume what they perceive with their senses is accurate; if others have a different perception, the other must be wrong. It is really helpful to remember that within every observation, we delete some things, we distort some things and we make generalizations. Some of the deletions, distortions and generalizations are based on sense limitations, and some are based on belief systems. If you have an established opinion about health, disease and medicine, for example, new information you receive is filtered through your current belief. It is not so much, "seeing is believing," as it is, "seeing when believing."

Maybe it is not always the case, but, in general, patients and clients will have different perceptions of and beliefs about procedures and outcomes than physicians. To help patients and clients move beyond the resistance that comes from their internal representations, or maps, help them provide you with understanding about current perceptions and beliefs: What does "reality" look like from the their perspective? What are their desired outcomes? What are their fears? What are their current beliefs about their condition?

The cost of a treatment is seen as a wise investment when a belief in the benefit is held. When a problem is recognized as reversible, a different set of choices become available. When relief can be expected to occur, the process becomes much clearer. Your facilitating a change in the person's belief about a process or procedure naturally creates a climate in which their behavior will more easily change. Skillful use of language is a natural way for this to happen.

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.

Salary growth lagging for primary care doctors
Reuters    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Despite rising spending on healthcare in the United States, primary care doctors don't seem to be reaping the rewards on their paychecks, a new study suggests. The findings could have implications for what some predictions say will be a primary care shortage in some parts of the country in the coming years. Researchers found that since the late 1980s, the average doctor's earnings have grown more slowly than the salaries of other health professionals, such as pharmacists, dentists and registered nurses.
