From Google Alerts: Links to Integrative Medicine in Health Systems and Communities from July 2013

ImageThis monthly report includes 17 segments from Google Alerts on integrative medicine developments in health systems plus 12 from the community for July 6, 2013-July 28, 2013. These came via requests for "integrative medicine," "integrative oncology," "alternative medicine" and "complementary and alternative medicine." The most significant media pick-up during the month was the Kaiser Health News feature, although the focus was on the favorable "alternative medicine" rather than "integrative medicine." Here is the MedPage link, WebMD and here the Denver Post, for instance. The Bravenet publication based on a study of integrative pain was also widely picked-up (see here and here and here, for instance.) Meantime, Paul Offit, MD's anti-CAIM book continues to pick up significant media, including this in the Washington Post and this rejoinder in the LA Times from the Council for Responsible Nutrition. Highest level of links yet from practitioners of integrative medicine in the community. Notably the IM links include naturopathic doctors and practitioners of acupuncture and Oriental medicine.

  • A column by a licensed naturopathic physician with the Beaumont Health System's Integrative Medicine is featured here.
  • Integrative medicine and particularly acupuncture at the University of Tennessee Medical Center, led by IM internist Rocio Huet, MD, is featured in an article and interview here.
  • The U Maryland IM team's research on acupuncture for in vitro fertilization was featured on this scienceblog post.
