ICIM Book of the Week


'Beyond the Medical Meltdown'
By Robert J. Zieve
"Beyond the Medical Meltdown" demonstrates that there is enough quality healthcare and enough money to pay for it, that more drugs and surgery is not necessarily better, and that the present healthcare quandary does not need to be the way it is. But to see this and to change healthcare will require enough people to wake up, think outside the box and take action. We are on a threshold. Healthcare as we have known it is dying. What we have come to see as "normal" medicine is not "healthy."

Student Viewpoint


Patrick W. Commiskey, University of Michigan Medical School
ICIM
Presently, there is an acute tension between mainstream medicine and disparate forms of complementary and alternative approaches. It helps to put this discord in context, and realize that medicine the way it is currently being practices is not the gold standard for all times to come. There is evolution and growth.

ICIM Lecture


The Roots of Disease: Connecting Dentistry and Medicine
by Tom Levy MD, JD

ICIM
It is now well-established that increased oxidative stress produces disease wherever it is present for a long enough period of time. How well any disease is managed and/or resolved ultimately depends upon the balance of infection/toxins (pro-oxidants) and antioxidants that are in specific tissues and areas of the body. Infections and toxins of dental origin, most importantly root canal-treated teeth, are enormously significant players in the disruption of this vital balance in favor of excess oxidation. A compelling case can be made for this being an important reason for not only chronic degenerative diseases of all kinds, but especially heart disease and cancer. This connection will be discussed in some detail, and practical suggestions will be made to help deal with this problem effectively in the patient population.
