Paradox & Controversy: Infections, Cancer Management, and Energy Medicine
Chicago
Oct. 28-Nov. 1, 2015




 
ICIM is a medical association of physicians dedicated to exploring and teaching integrative treatments to help our patients. Jan 3-10, 2015 we gather in Maya Tulum, Mexico, for our members retreat. This newsletter is designed to prepare attendees and continue discussions of the education we provide.

What's in a name?
ICIM
As integrative doctors we see both sides of the coin, the allopathic training we were given in medical school as well as innovative new ideas that we seek out to help our patients. This "marriage" between mindsets is a very uneasy partnership.

Pros and Cons


Estrogen and osteoporosis
ICIM
After menopause without the use of estrogen, a woman can lose up to 20 percent of her bone mass. This increases her risk for osteoporosis leading to loss of height, hip fractures, chronic pain and disability. Of women who suffer hip fractures, 24 percent die of complications within a year of the injury. Osteoporosis of the spine leads to the familiar "dowager's hump." A dowager's hump is a prominence on the back resulting from collapse of the spine from spontaneous vertebral fractures. When it's severe, the woman is totally bent over and cannot stand up straight. It is tragic to see a woman suffering from something that could have been prevented.
