Why I Switched to Functional Medicine - Michael Bauerschmidt, MD
Michael Bauerschmidt, MD
Michael Bauerschmidt, MD, is the immediate past president of ACAM. Re-born out of his own challenge overcoming debilitating pain from a car accident, as a former ER doctor and now self-proclaimed "ex-Card-Carrying Member of the Medical Orthodoxy", Dr. Bauerschmidt immersed himself in Functional Medicine because he found that it worked for him where everything else traditional medicine offered had failed.

IM Advocacy
The FDA could block compounding pharmacists from making important hormone treatment preparations that are critical for some female patients. 
 
The federal agency has nominated estriol estradiol and progesterone, among other biodentical hormones, to be added to the "Demonstrably Difficult to Compound List" - despite the fact pharmacists have been making such preparations for decades.
 
Public pressure has delayed the decision by the FDA's Pharmacy Compounding Advisory Committee until after a study by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine. Some worry, however, such a study could provide cover for the FDA to move ahead with listing the hormones anyway and even though patient satisfaction with compounded BHRT is extremely high and there is evidence to recommend bioidentical hormone treatment over conventional hormone replacement.
