INTEGRATIVE MEDICINE

What is Integrative Medicine? The Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine defines integrative medicine (IM) as "healing-oriented medicine that takes account of the whole person (body, mind, and spirit), including all aspects of lifestyle. It emphasizes the therapeutic relationship and makes use of all appropriate therapies, both conventional and alternative". Integrative Medicine is a holistic alternative that makes use of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) therapies.   CAM therapies include, but are not limited to massage, reiki, traditional Chinese medicine, phytotherapy, yoga, shiatsu, biofeedback, chiropractic, hypnosis, homeopathy, naturopathy, art therapies, etc. This evolution in thinking has brought holistic alternative healing modalities to be included with conventional, mainstream medicine.  It is a growing practice in today’s MD offices to include a ND (naturopathic doctor) on staff to address the growing demand from their patients.  A Wikipedia definition renders integrative medicine ‘a combination of orthodox and complementary medicine’.   Dr. Andrew Weil, a leading proponent of integrative medicine, does not give an overall endorsement to holistic alternative medicine, but champions combining conventional and alternative therapies.  Overall, he is a proponent of the use of plants and feels they are safer and present fewer problems than some pharmaceuticals.  He has also written extensively about the healing properties of mushrooms.  In 1994, Dr.Weil founded the Program in Integrative Medicine at the University of Arizona.    One of the defining principals of The Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine is a renewed partnership between patient and practitioner which considers all factors that produce health, wellness and disease.  Their goal is to contribute scientific research combining complementary and alternative therapies with conventional medicine.   The Mayo Clinic home page notes that 40% of U.S. adults report using complementary and holistic alternative medicine.   According to the Nutrition Business Journal in 2009, the U.S. market for integrative medicine was valued at approximately 45$ billion. The Consortium for Academic Health Centers’ mission for integrative medicine is “to advance the principles and practices of integrative healthcare within academic institutions.” According to sdcms.org, some of the most common CAM therapies for adults include massage, meditation, yoga and an assortment of natural products.  68% of adults have used at least one kind of alternative or complementary therapy according to naturopathic-physicians.com.    All Things Healing promotes and supports integrative medicine with information updated weekly in article and video form.

Editor's Note from Debbie Walhof: Most people know someone who is Dyslexic. Over 44 million people in our country have this gift/challenge. It is always a nice reminder to see how different types of minds contribute to our society. For a fun exercise start asking around and you might find out that someone in your family… like Uncle Charlie who hates to read books… is actually Dyslexic. Or perhaps it’s a close friend. How can you help educate the world so that we are all valued?

Although certainly just one of many things contributing to weight gain, I suspect that childhood sexual and emotional abuse can also play a significant role. Having worked with thousands of seriously ill patients over the last 3 decades, including many women who went through childhood sexual abuse, I've seen how many women are left with long-term consequences...

Magnesium is a critical component of over 350 enzymes so that its deficiency may manifest in virtually any organ system. Unfortunately, blood, serum and plasma levels of magnesium do not reflect adequate levels of magnesium since magnesium is much more concentrated in cells than in blood. Indeed, only two tests are adequate...
