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 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

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

GMO issues to be aware of!

Should Our Kids Ever Get Into Chlorine Pools?

Someone asked me this question yesterday. I responded--Although I would not allow them to be on the swim team or sign them up for a summer camp that would have them swimming in chlorine every day, I do allow them to go into chlorine when it comes up. These times are pretty limited all things considered. These times include other kid's birthday parties or playdates at other children's homes-or even the random vacation that might include a chlorinated pool. Do I like it?


As my daughter said to me, "Mommy, why would they put toxic things in children's toothpaste?", and I answered...adults do stupid things too sweetheart! 

How about putting toxic chmicals in the public's water supply?

Something I have Been Saying For Years

We have been telling patients for years not to use anti-microbial soaps due to the adverse effects that they create in those using them. I have forbidden my children from allowing these soaps and hand sanitozers to be placed on them at their schools despite quite intense push back from their teachers and school administrators.

This is the first article that I have read indicating that the medical public is beginning to realize just how destructive these types of substances are and what a negative impact they are having on the health of the population.


Pop corn is one of those foods that is techincally fine around list 4/5. However--this is a very individual type thing as is true with many of the foods within those lists.

The diet lists are defintiely skeletons that I go by and we individualize depending on the person. Foods that are very highly fibrous as is the case with popcorn can be abrasive to the intestines and therefor cause more problems with intestinal leakage. So, if you are eating popcorn and finding that you are flaring, this is likely why.

GMO Update

The articles says more than I could possibly explain well. So, I will let it speak for itself. Crazy that such contaminants are allowed to ever get into our food supply:

New Baby

I received this email from a patient this weekend who newly gave birth to one of the cutest babies I have ever seen. She is soooo adorable. I am having technical difficulties posting the picture, but will hopefully get it worked out and post it here. But, mean time, here is a little paragraph abou how she got here:



Dose Adjustments

This might be a tough post. I am going to try and articulate some very fundamental things. And, as I learn over and over again from these posts and my every interaction, and most recently from my posts the other day, I need to be careful about the words I use so as not to distress anyone. The thing is, somehow I manage to distress people when I feel like inside of my consciousness, I am about one of the most positive people I have ever come accross. 

Update to Last Post Today


It seems I may have created more frustration and confusion than I intended. It isvery hard to capture the essence of what I am trying to say sometime in such a short formatting.
