HAVE YOU HEARD ABOUT ACAM2016 YET?
WHAT'S NEXT: An Interdisciplinary Approach to Advanced Prevention will be the theme of the 2016 ACAM Annual Meeting held in Tucson, Arizona September 15-18, 2016.
In recent discussions by the Board of Directors and the Education Committee, a significant need for better collaboration between medical disciplines in patient care was recognized. The 2016 annual meeting will address how each of the disciplines (MD, DO, ND, DDS, PA, NP, DC) can accomplish this goal. there will be an emphasis on advanced prevention of three major conditions, including cardiovascular disease, cancer, and degenerative brain conditions.
Dr. Battle was born in Marshall, Texas. After living throughout the Southeast, he returned to Texas to enter and graduate from Rice University. In 1965, he received his M.D. from the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston, Texas. Following a year of rotating internship with the United States Public Health Hospital in Norfolk, Virginia, he served a residency of two years at John Sealy Hospital in Galveston.
Attached is a rebuttal argument I put together to help a physician in responding to an action taken against him by his state medical board. After an hour or so meeting with the board, no fault was found with his therapy for the patient in question, nor with the use of vitamin C and glutathione in that patient's treatment. In accordance with this finding, no fines were levied, and no restriction was placed on his license. Some additional CME (continuing medical education) was about the only tangible recommendation that resulted.
It should be noted that this physician not only rendered excellent medical care, he had never had an action initiated against him in roughly 40 years. Furthermore, he put together a massive and, I believe, excellent written scientific defense of his course of medical care for this patient. Nevertheless, the last communication before the hearing took place seemed to focus on the vitamin C and glutathione aspect of the patient's care, as the board expert continued to press with his or her lack of awareness of "any significant uses for vitamin C and glutathione in the treatment of sepsis."

A CONSTANT STREAM OF EXPENSIVE DRUGS
- Helen Saul Case, for Orthomolecular Medicine News Service
It would be novel indeed to see a news media report entitled "Life- Saving Vitamins." That's a headline about vitamins that would be true for once.
Instead, I see folks on TV speaking about those drugs they so desperately "need" while they plead with drug companies to just make them more affordable. "It's tough when it comes to medical stuff costing so much because you can't say no to medication," says one patient who seeks an expensive drug to help lower his high cholesterol . READ MORE
