The more you know about Integrative Medicine, the easier my work becomes. When you understand how I approach health and health improvement you will understand my recommendations and be more effective in restoring vibrant health. The first items concern the important approach of "functional assessment" which gives clues to the underlying efforts of the body to heal itself. More will be added so that you can learn how to focus on supporting the healing process rather than potentially becoming sidetracked by seeking diagnosis labels.
Take a break and watch this relaxing slideshow on YouTube (a gift from Multi-Sensory Therapy.org):

State of Ease
A free gift from HeartMath
There is a "state of ease" that each of us can access to help release emotional turbulence and help maintain coherent alignment between our heart, mind and emotions. Learning to access our personal space of "inner-ease" can be done with minimum practice and in just a little time. When operating in an ease-mode, it’s easier to choose less stressful perceptions and attitudes and re-create "flow" in our daily routines.

|American Academy of Environmental Medicine|
|The American Academy of Environmental Medicine was founded in 1965, and is an international association of physicians and other professionals interested in the clinical aspects of humans and their environment. The Academy is interested in expanding the knowledge of interactions between human individuals and their environment, as these may be demonstrated to be reflected in their total health. The AAEM provides research and education in the recognition, treatment and prevention of illnesses induced by exposures to biological and chemical agents encountered in air, food and water. [site]|

Study of the Human Form:
The Integral Anatomy series -- a beautiful study of the human body from the perspective of the holiness of life. Gil Hedley (author of "Reconceiving My Body") teaches the appreciation of the gift of life by anatomy dissection classes and DVDs. This is for practitioners, students, and the dedicated layperson who wants to learn more about their own body.
Read below the review by Dr. James Oschman, author of "Energy Medicine: The Scientific Basis".
JAMES OSCHMAN, PH.D., Energy Medicine: The Scientific Basis. "Gil Hedley has created an artful and engaging series of journeys of discovery into the human body. His brilliant explorations enliven human structure in new ways that every student of movement and bodywork will appreciate and apply. I especially value Gil’s deep respect for those who have contributed their physical forms so that we may better know ourselves. His constant reference from the parts to the whole and back again to the parts bring life and meaning to an adventure that lies hidden when we study static anatomical drawings."

Herb, Nutrient, and Drug Interactions
Presenting detailed, evidence-based coverage of the most commonly encountered therapeutic agents in modern clinical practice, Herb, Nutrient, and Drug Interactions: Clinical Implications and Therapeutic Strategies is your invaluable guide for safe and effective integration of herbal, nutrient, and drug therapies for your patients or clients. Combining pharmaceuticals with herbs or nutrients may complement or interfere with a drug's therapeutic action or may increase adverse effects. Furthermore, drug-induced depletion of essential nutrients can occur. It is critical that you know how herbs and nutritional agents might affect your treatment plan and your patient's health.

The Complete Homeopathic Resource for Common Illnesses
[Interactive CD Inside ]
Publisher says: This useful guide is a single, indispensable resource for anyone interested in using homeopathic medicines. Noted author Dennis Chernin introduces readers to the basics of homeopathic theory, laws, history, and practical applications, as well as to clear explanations of the fundamental homeopathic vocabulary. He provides a brief synopsis of homeopathy's present status and compares it with conventional medicine, before proceeding to a step-by-step guide to creating a home remedy kit. The bulk of the book focuses on more than 150 common disorders, conditions, and illnesses, each treated in a separate section, alphabetically organized. Each section includes basic background information as well as accessible guidance on how to consider the symptoms and how to treat and heal them. For each condition, all the possible symptoms are matched with the remedy appropriate to them. The bundled CDROM integrates these resources with a simple, graphics-based user interface incorporating the latest research.

Dynamic Homeopathy -- A serious healthcare model: For students who plan on healthcare careers (any of the medical, nursing, bodywork, counseling, or other branches) -- The best system of understanding human health and Life in general is the Dynamic System of Thought that has developed from the insights of Samuel Hahnemann, M.D. Over 100 years prior to Einstein he understood human beings to be simultaneously Substance and Energy, and developed a structure for treating patients and curing disease. This is now being developed in great detail at the Hahnemann Center for Heilkunst. Read more on teaching website | go to HCH Bookstore.
Acumeridian theory: I also think it would be very helpful to learn the basic acumeridian information (as found in Chinese acupuncture, and Japanese, Korean and German acupuncture approaches), and then read about the biomagnetic sciences and fractal dynamics and how chaos/pattern theory help explain the existence of acupuncture meridians. See the Acumeridian page about this. Recent developments in the U.S.A. have shown correlations between muscle, organs and acumeridian energy flow.

Fractal Dynamics and body energy flow:
The fractal dynamics page on this site has more details. I believe this is the field that proves the ebb and flow and variability inherent in acumeridian theory, and is necessary to understand Heart Rate Variability biofeedback and its implications, as well as the variations seen in iridology, individual responses to therapies, etc.
Mind-Body: Fractal Dynamics lectures and I-Ching synchronicity information
There is a wealth of information online about the 64 unit I-Ching structure. The I-Ching has been called a fractal discovery that has implications for both psychology and study of the nature of the flow of life. Psychologist C.G. Jung wrote extensively about the value of the I-Ching in self-discovery, as well as the concept of "Synchronicity." I highly recommend the I-Ching for both scientific and personal benefits. The book The Medical I-Ching, describes one way to apply this.
One resource is a CD that contains both a software that allows the process of the original yarrow stalk approach to casting the I-Ching: The Oracle of Changes (called Software for the Soul). "The Oracle of Changes CD contains 3 exceptionally interesting video-taped interviews with leading science authors, Terence Mckenna, Ralph Abraham and Katya Walters, regarding their insights into how the I-Ching works in light of the fractal nature of time, Chaos Theory and DNA research which shows an amazing correlation between the code sequences of DNA and the hexagram sequences of the I-Ching."
Medicine Cards: Similar process to what Jung was describing about the I-Ching. This is a set of cards with First Nations ("Native American") animal totems and a book of descriptions of what this animal represents. When you visit the website the front page includes a free Medicine Card viewing and words describing its significance; I find it meditative and beautiful. From teacher David Carson. [click here]
