It is more important to know what sort of person has a disease than to know what sort of disease a person has. -Hippocrates

If You Have Found ICAMA

...you have landed on a website rich with support and information on alternatives or
adjunctive treatments to the standard methods of treatment that exist today.

If you are looking for those kinds of options, this means
that you feel that those standard treatments have not worked for you or that you are
looking for something to work in place of or in conjunction with your present treatment
choice.

I think the most significant difference between this site and other sites is that we offer

Forum

We don't go into the forum, but this am I could not help but notice the topic of late. Although I am not clicking in, I just need to say, NOOOOO, rice bran is NOT OK. Bran in general is NOT OK. It will cause huge amounts of pain because it agitates the intestines.

Much later in treament you could have some bran in a muffin etc...without feeling it's ill effects, but, while getting the inflammation down-not a good idea.

Are You Re-doing Your House?

If you are painting, or putting in new floors, or carpet, redoing your kitchen cabinets, or building a new house....

STOP!

Before you do any of these things, consider what materials you are using. Just as you are learning the importance of being careful with the ingredients you are putting inside your body, it is equally important to think about what materials you are surrounding your body with environmentally. for those of you who think it does not make a difference, I can assure you, it makes a huge difference.

Push or Change?

Someone asked me this week to post on when to push through a protocol and when to ask me for a change.

This is a tough question because obviously I do not want anyone to feel uncomfortable physically. However, sometimes feeling a little uncomfortable on the road to wellness is an important step.

Diet Protocol

A lot came up today about diet protocol. And, I realize this is a heated subject because people have a lot of strong feelings about diet, including me of course. However, if you are trying to do this protocol then it is probably very good to try and eat within the guidelines of what we are suggesting you do. If you want to be stricter that's great-or, is it? Sometimes it isn't actually.

Popcorn

I changed popcorn to list 5. Really popcorn should be consumes delicately especially for those whoa re newly well. It can agitate the intestines because it is so fibrous and make symptoms come back. So, watch that-not too soon and not too much when it is OK.

Different Types Of Heat

I don't know how much all of you have read about Chinese medicine, but, I was having a conversation with someone today and also the other day that occured to me as being interesting for many of you.

Baby Gas

I was speaking to one of my daughter's classmate's mother the other day about advice given by her pediatrician (who is a very hip one) vs. what seems best to do. We were kind of laughing as mothers do about the different kinds of advice that can be given and we talked a bit about things to do.

Coincidentally, Boaz just sent this article to me this morning (sometimes we only have time to converse through email :) ) and I thought it was really interesting.

Boaz in the UK

It's finally happening! Happily, Boaz has finally been able to make arrangements to go to London to meet up with those of you there between the 21st and the 24th of November. 

For more information, please call or email our office.
