Just the other day, Martha reconnected via email with an old friend of ours, John Weeks. I first met John back in the mid-1980's when he was the first Development Officer for Bastyr College. I got to know him much better while was serving with him on the American Association of Naturopathic Physicians (AANP) Board of Directors.
John has gone on to carve out a career as the Editor/ Publisher of The Integrator Blog, a website devoted to "a health care system that is multidisciplinary and enhances competence, mutual respect and collaboration across all health care disciplines."
In emailing back and forth with Martha he directed us to a little blurb he had just published on the recent AANP Convention which had mentioned a long forgotten (although not by John) suggestion of mine about creating 'model states' as part of our drive to secure license in all 50 states.
That was interesting enough, but more jostled me out of my typical late morning indolence was a discussion elsewhere about the chronology and authorship of the phrase 'Integrative Medicine'.
In another move undoubtedly destined to make me even more popular with Andrew Weil (who is widely credited with it authorship) I wrote John a quick note that mentioned off-the-cuff that I had used the phrase long ago when I was part of a small committee responsible for formulating the first clinical curriculum at Bastyr College.
Well, after we conducted a see-saw email interview, John wrote a rather nice little blog about it.
I just wanted to tell you my family has been using the Eat Right for your blood type diet for at least 10 years and I'm so exicited to there is a website available (Just thought to look for it). Yay! Thank you
Do you know of any module/pakage/formula on diet that can be used as intervention program for cancer patient, e.g. stage 4 breast cancer.
We organized a seminar recently on integrative oncology. As expected the clinicians were harping on evidence base. I am a clinician too, but I and hubby are cancer survivors and I am a believer of integrative or complementary.
Do you have any result on such study and the nutritional program, detailing what should and should not be eaten, and how the changes affect patients' quality of life or life expectancy.
You mess with a bull, you get the horns.
