AMA, Other Leading Medical Organizations Urge Insurance for Non-Pharma/Integrative Pain Care- The Huffington Post

With rampant opioid prescription issues, many of the major medical organizations such as the American Medical Association, the American Pain Society and the Academy of Integrative Pain Management, are warming up to the idea that other forms of pain management therapy are needed and they cannot simply medicate “away” each patient’s pain complaints. But it seems there is a barrier for many patients who could benefit from services such as acupuncture. Many insurance policies do not have an acupuncture benefit, or if they do, it is limited. Will the insurance carriers change their policies to help their policy holders, time will tell. As I have written about before in my blog, there is a 3,000% rise in medical services as a result of opioid dependence. So obviously this is a very serious public health issue.

Will the FTC End Homeopathy? Mercola.com

Why am I not surprised. The FDA can’t finish off homeopathy so they passed the ball the the FTC. Despite its effectiveness clinically, despite its impeccable safety record, despite that homeopathy is used extensively throughout the rest of the world, according to the bureaucrats in Washington (with their revolving door with pharma) we must save the unsuspecting  public from dangerous homeopathic medicines. I need some nux vomica before I throw up, or before its outlawed, whichever comes first. How many people do you know who had to visit an emergency room after using a homeopathic medicine?

How Fasting Affects Your Physiology and Hormones

How does fasting affect your body? Is it a dangerous thing
to do? Don’t I need to eat five meals a day?
Or, perhaps there are many health benefits from fasting.

This article authored by Dr. Jason Fung, MD, a leading
expert on diabetes and fasting explains the benefits of fasting. If you are
already following a ketogenic diet, you know that it is not unusual to wake in
the morning WITHOUT hunger, and simply having a cup of coffee will hold you
over until lunch time.  So if your last
meal for the day is 8:00 PM, and your first meal the following day is 12:00 PM,
you have already fasted for 16 hours. It really can be this simple.

If you are like the average American, who has a breakfast of
cereal (carbs and sugar), maybe a piece of toast as well (carbs), or perhaps a
muffin (carbs and sugar), and a glass of juice (more carbs and sugar), you will
become hypoglycemic in a few hours and will need more carbs and sugar. It’s
called the insulin roller coaster ride. By the way, in case you didn’t know
elevated insulin triggers fat storage especially when you have a never ending
stream of carbs and sugar in the diet.  

Is it any wonder why everyone is overweight and either pre-diabetic
or diabetic? Since we have been on the low fat diet, the nation is sicker than
ever. I have insulin dependent diabetic patients who are told to make sure they
eat plenty of carbs to keep their blood sugar up. What kind of sick world are
we living in? We want these patients to continue to eat the very foods which
have made them ill to begin with.

Maybe it’s time to look more closely at dietary
recommendations before everyone is diabetic?
