ACAM FEATURED WRITERS AND ARTICLES


Consciousness in health and disease
By Steven M. Hall, M.D.
Not all physical effects have physical causes. If you want to get to the root of more disease processes and help more of your patients really heal, you may have to think beyond biochemistry. Not every disease in a person is caused by genetics, toxins, poor diet, digestive imbalances, stress, etc.

Game-changing. Paradigm-shifting. Revolutionizing.
By John Gannage, MD
I am not one for hyperbole or exaggeration. But when I attend conferences, as I do often, and sift through the mounds of information, my service as a health practitioner is to bring to the clinic, on the Monday after, any medical breakthroughs that I think will assist my patient base. It was like that with probiotics and "leaky gut" in the mid-90's for me, chelation therapy in the later 90's, vitamin D 10 years ago, and mitochondrial dysfunction a couple years back. Each ahead of its time I might suggest, when compared to when mainstream medicine catches on, but foundational and paradigm-shifting in their own regard.

Stem cell therapy offers hope of eliminating need for heart transplants

But now researchers think that adding stem cells at the same time could eventually make heart transplants obsolete. Allan Isaacs, 71, had congestive heart failure, which made it difficult to perform basic tasks such as walking, breathing and eating. But after getting a left ventricular assist device put in his chest, he got moving again.

Obamacare recognizes alternative medicine
Cincinnati Business Courier
Practitioners of alternative medicine could get a boost from Obamacare. The law includes a provision that insurance companies "shall not discriminate" against any state-licensed health provider, Kaiser Health News reported. That would presumably include practitioners such as chiropractors. And, as the news outlet reported, several other parts of the law related to health and wellness give "nods to alternative medicine."
