‘Changing Times Call for Smarter Doctors’ (click to read article)

Andrew Weil, MD established the field of Integrative Medicine, which combines conventional treatments with alternative therapies. Here he spells out all of the questions we have in the labels that surround our field of medicine!

Here is a quick quote from the article:
“Integrative medicine has much broader goals than simply bringing appropriate complementary and alternative therapies into mainstream practice. In particular, it aims to:

(1) Restore the focus of medical teaching, research, and practice on health and healing;
(2) Develop “whole person” medicine, in which the mental, emotional and spiritual dimensions of human beings are included in diagnosis and treatment, along with the physical body;
(3) Take all aspects of diet and lifestyle into account in assessing health and the root causes of disease;
(4) Protect and emphasize the practitioner/patient relationship as central to the healing process;
(5) Emphasize disease prevention and health promotion.

I believe that integrative medicine is the future of medicine and healthcare. Integrative medicine doctors, together with like-minded nurses, pharmacists, and others, are best positioned to improve health outcomes for patients and create a functional, cost-effective health care system that serves all of our citizens – one that shifts the focus of medicine from disease and treatment to health and healing. “

Happy Chinese Year of the RABBIT!!
We welcome a “peaceful” 2011…

According to Chinese tradition, the Rabbit brings a year in which you can catch your breath and calm your nerves. It is a time for negotiation. To gain the greatest benefits from this time, focus on home, family, security, diplomacy, and your relationships with women and children.

Make it a New Year’s resolution to create a safe, peaceful lifestyle, so you will be able to calmly deal with any problem that may arise.

Bob and Charlee Moore, founders of Bob’s Red Mill Natural Foods, have donated $1.35 million to my alma mater, The National College of Natural Medicine. Most of the gift will be used to build a teaching and research kitchen on the College’s Lair Hill campus. About $200,000 of the new grant will fund the college’s Ending Child Obesity project that brings families in for free workshops on cooking with whole foods. The rest of the grant will fund scholarships.
