In this informative, process-oriented, and experiential session, we will share the format, core practices, and rationale of our ongoing Meditation group.
The plunging costs of genomic testing has led to the emergence a new field
The session is preparing for a more comprehensive panel discussion to be led by John Weeks entitled "Pain, Prejudice, and Opioids: Emerging Policy and Integrative Practice". The session will trace the efforts of the military to tackle the long-term challenges of service-related pain and its management (related to natural causes, training, deployment, and combat wounds). The discussion will draw upon the personal experiences of the speaker in fostering and supporting a more comprehensive approach to the understanding, mitigation, self-care, and healthcare management of acute and chronic pain.
Pain is the historic, primary front of integrative care.
Our society is in the midst of an emerging epidemic of chronic Inflammatory Disease affecting nearly 50% of our population. Most of these conditions were virtually nonexistent a little more than a century ago, but have grown exponentially with the rise of modern medial pharmacotherapeutics.
This talk will first examine what the impact of diet and lifestyle COULD BE on the human condition if knowledge were power. It will then consider the toll associated with our failure to use what we know. The talk will then look closely at the body of evidence relating dietary pattern to human health- and make the case that we are NOT clueless about the basic care and feeding of our species. Endless debate about the details of optimal diets.
The healthcare industry—and the laws and policies that regulate the system—has been changing rapidly over the past few years.

Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease has silently become a worldwide pandemic. It is typically asymptomatic at first, but can slowly progress into a much more serious condition called steatohepatitis (NASH) that leads to irreversible scarring, cirrhosis, and liver failure. NAFLD is strongly associated with a wide range of co-morbidities, including obesity, metabolic syndrome, and type 2 diabetes.
This issue focuses on clinical innovation in the integrative field as well as cutting-edge patient protocols for integrative professionals.
Building, maintaining and growing an integrative medicine clinic, hospital program, or health system department is challenging in today
