The International College of Integrative Medicine (ICIM) is holding a conference this weekend in Dearborn, MI at the Dearborn Inn. I have been waiting for this event for months! As a write this post, I am preparing to leave for one of the pre-conference workshops (starts in 90min by my watch).
Their theme for the conference is “Treating the Impossible”
So what does ”Treating the Impossible” mean? By this I mean things that conventional medicine doesn’t have a good treatment for, or at least a satisfying treatment. An example of no good treatment is sarcoid: you might slow it down a bit with steroids, but it’s going to keep progressing. An example of no satisfying treatment is ulcerative colitis: steroids and medications can slow it down at significant cost to the rest of the body and removing the colon abates the symptoms, but at great cost. -Malcolm Sickels MD
In past conference such as this, almost every speaker mentions gluten as an insult to the body. However, there is going to be an expert on Celiac and Gluten giving a talk on Friday, Dr Tom O’Bryan. I do not recall hearing him speak before, but it should be good.
For those in the healthcare field, its not too late to join us! If you miss this one, there will be others.
