Third, it is accepted as being self-evident."

The new language of medicine: Part II

By William Collinge, M.P.H., Ph.D.

(WebMD) -- This is the second in a two-part series on integrative medicine, the combination of conventional and alternative therapies.

Mysterious diseases that neither seems to have a single cause nor a single cure is the most compelling forces behind the rise of integrative medicine. The diseases, called "complex chronic illnesses," have confounded doctors, who attempt to treat patients suffering from the conditions for which one form of medicine doesn't seem to be enough.

Complex chronic illnesses affect more than one system in the body. Because of this, patients recover most successfully with the use of an amalgam of therapies that involve both conventional and alternative approaches.

Prime examples

Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) and fibromyalgia are leading examples of complex chronic illnesses. Both conditions involve the immune, circulatory, digestive and nervous systems, which interact with each other in bewildering ways.

The immune systems of persons afflicted with CFS churn out abnormally high levels of the hormones normally responsible for stimulating immune cells into action. But high levels of these hormones can also create a deep sense of fatigue. Individuals with CFS can also have serious problems with memory and concentration ("brain fog"), sleep, pain and digestion.

Widespread bodily pain is the most characteristic symptom of fibromyalgia. While sufferers of the condition perceive the pain they experience as coming from their muscles, the muscles don't show any signs of disease. The pain occurs when the brain encounters disturbance while processing normal nerve impulses. Fibromyalgia sufferers can also experience CFS-like symptoms.

One haystack, many needles

A labyrinth of factors causes the two illnesses. While each factor by itself may not be sufficient to cause the illness, a multiplicity of factors can conspire to establish an insidious pattern of chronic symptoms that can be difficult to dislodge. With a sudden trauma or injury, extreme or chronic stress, environmental toxins, possibly certain germs and a person's genetic vulnerabilities, the factors all join together to wreak havoc, and a complex chronic illness results.

Because conventional medicine is based on diseases that have a single cause, mainstream physicians have, for the most part, failed to treat complex chronic illnesses. Individuals with CFS and fibromyalgia need more than a single drug, surgery or other high-tech solutions.

Complex chronic illnesses involve a "web of causality" with many factors that "are not linked to each other in a linear, predictable manner," explain researchers Pierre Philippe and Omaima Mansi of the Department of Social and Preventive Medicine at the University of Montreal.

A foggy brain, a book in the refrigerator

Abby, who didn't want her last name used, knows all about the result of interlaced factors. The 43-year-old psychotherapist received whiplash from an auto accident 11 years ago. For more than one year she suffered pain, which caused disturbed sleep and chronic stress, and it was during this time that she also became pregnant.

After giving birth, the Greenwich, Connecticut resident developed a series of bacterial infections. Her doctors put her on a heavy course of antibiotics, and one year later she developed a flu that never seemed to leave.

Abby was on a downward spiral, one that led her into a seven-year sojourn through CFS and fibromyalgia. At her worst she was barely able to get out of bed to go to the bathroom. Her brain fog was so severe that she once found a book in her refrigerator.

The promise of integrative medicine

With the help of a naturopath, Abby turned to herbal medicines and supplements and an organic, no allergenic diet to support her digestive system. She practiced meditation and breathing exercises every day and received acupuncture regularly to stimulate her body's healing process.

To complement the alternative therapies, an understanding physician prescribed medications to treat depression, pain and sleep disturbance.

"I don't know what I would have done without those medicines, because they restored my sleep, when nothing natural would," Abby says. "Then my immune system had a chance to heal."

Today, while Abby occasionally suffers from mild symptoms during stressful times, she is able to jog three times a week, and she lives a full life with her husband and 10-year-old son. She continues to use herbs, supplements and a healthy diet.

Integrating the strengths of conventional and alternative therapies has been the key to Abby's healing and holds promise for countless others who face the challenges of complex chronic illness.

William Collinge, M.P.H., Ph.D., is a consultant for integrative health care and behavioral medicine. He has conducted research in behavioral medicine for cancer, AIDS and chronic fatigue syndrome. He is also the author of several books, including "The American Holistic Health Association Complete Guide to Alternative Medicine," "Recovering from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome: A Guide to Self-Empowerment" and "The Mind/Body Medicine Library."

The new language of medicine: Part I

By William Collinge, M.P.H., Ph.D. WebMD)


This is the first in a two-part series on integrative medicine, the combination of conventional and alternative therapies.

When Lisa Duhl was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1982, it seemed she had two treatment options. She could have a mastectomy and undergo chemotherapy, or she could give alternative medicine a try.

Instead, the then-36-year-old Berkeley resident decided on a course of treatment that was quite unusual for the day: She decided to do both. Now, 17 years later, she's still free of cancer and hasn't had a recurrence.

Today, many people are finding that a combination of conventional and alternative therapies is the best bet for fighting serious diseases such as cancer and heart disease. It's a new brand of medicine: integrative medicine.

Ahead of her time

At the time Duhl learned of her cancer, advocates of conventional and alternative medicine were at odds with each other, leading many people to believe they had to choose between the two kinds of medicine.

Duhl didn't see the situation that way. Her life was on the line, and she was willing to try any and every approach to stay alive. She decided to combine elements of both conventional and alternative medicine into a treatment plan that best addressed her physical, mental and emotional needs.

"I felt a lot of pressure ... to use alternatives instead of conventional medicine," recalls Duhl, who just completed her doctorate in psychology. "People said chemotherapy would kill me, and that if I didn't do alternative medicine, I'd die.

"I told them I had a 10-year-old daughter who wouldn't forgive me if I didn't do everything I could to save my life."

Duhl's treatment regimen included visualization, the use of mental imagery to stimulate healing responses in the body. She practiced a Chinese form of meditation called Chi Kung and relied on acupuncture to reduce the nausea caused by chemotherapy. She also worked with a Native American medicine woman and several spiritual healers.

The cheering section

Fortunately, Duhl had the support of her husband, who was no stranger to integrative medicine. As a professor in the University of California-Berkeley's School of Public Health, Dr. Len Duhl had always encouraged his medical students to open their minds to the world of unconventional health practices and to integrate them into a more complete approach to healing. "We depended upon the best and most advanced chemotherapy protocols available," he said. "We also found that while conventional medicine was important and excellent, it ignored certain issues that were important.

"The alternative practitioners supplemented Lisa's treatment, and as a team they were formidable."

Redefining medicine

This formidable combination of conventional and alternative medicine is fast gaining mainstream acceptance. In fact, insurance companies and HMOs now provide coverage for acupuncture, massage and other treatments that were considered "unconventional" when Lisa Duhl was diagnosed with breast cancer.

As early as 1993, researchers at Harvard Medical School reported in the New England Journal of Medicine that one-third of all Americans used some form of unconventional medicine, such as mind/body therapies, chiropractic, massage, spiritual healing, nutritional and herbal medicine, homeopathy or acupuncture.

Most medical universities and hospitals are now incorporating many of these practices. At the same time, patients are demanding them. And, under the direction of integrative-medicine guru Dr. Andrew Weil, the first formal training program in integrative medicine for physicians is in full swing at the University of Arizona. With this atmosphere, medical students across the country are appealing for more education in the alternative arena.

By any other name

The pleas of patients and medical students are not without basis. Since the 1980s, researchers have been mounting scientific evidence that integrative medicine often works better than conventional treatment alone.

Dr. Dean Ornish's program at the Preventive Medicine Research Institute in Sausalito, California, is famous for reversing heart disease with a combination of diet, moderate exercise, stress management, meditation, group support, yoga, and conventional diagnostic procedures and drugs as needed.

At the Stanford University Medical School, Dr. David Spiegel and his team of researchers have found that women with advanced breast cancer doubled their survival time by participating in group therapy while undergoing conventional treatments.

People living with AIDS are also benefiting from integrative medicine. Dr. Jon Kaiser at the Davies Medical Center in San Francisco, California, starts his patients on a program of diet, nutritional supplementation, herbs, acupuncture, exercise and mind/body medicine. He then incorporates drug therapies only if the rest of the program proves not to be sufficient. Almost 90 percent of Kaiser's patients improved or have been able to keep the disease at bay.

How does the nature of healing energy work? PDF Print E-mail
Healthy cells vibrate at a higher frequency and amplitude than diseased cells. It is therefore possible to use algorithms to establish the ideal frequency of any organ, cell, or tissue. ETAScan enables everyone to evaluate their personal condition based on the ideal frequency for their cell, tissue, or organ and re-energise their condition, in gentle increments, back to a higher vibration.

What is Energy or Vibrational Medicine? PDF Print E-mail

Energy medicine has been around for centuries and is accepted in many cultures. Allopathic medicine has made great and life-saving progress in the past century.

CAT scans and other modern medicine only show disease when it's already firmly rooted in the bodyWhat is the difference between modern medicine and energy medicine?

In our modern health care system, when diagnostic testing results come back negative or inconclusive, it is because the technology being used only measures the most dense layers of the human energy field – the physical body. These analytical devices like MRI, X-ray, CAT scan and ultrasound, to name a few, use energy to visualize and indicate disease when contrasted to healthy tissue. This is only useful once the disease process is firmly rooted in the physical body.

What does it mean then, when you are told there is no disease, yet you continue to experience pain? Pain is always a message from our body or emotions to alert us that something is out of balance.
