Accepting a single pharmaceutical industry-sponsored meal was associated with higher rates of prescribing certain drugs to Medicare patients by physicians, with more, and costlier, meals associated with greater increases in prescribing, according to an article published online by JAMA Internal Medicine. Some argue industry-sponsored meals and payments help facilitate the discussion of novel treatments but others have raised concerns about the …

They received the FDA’s coveted Breakthrough Therapy Designation, which is is given to drugs that show significant treatment advantages to existing options.

Throughout the fall, Pfizer, the maker of Viagra, has been courting Allergan, the manufacturer of Botox. Pfizer was not attracted by Allergan’s wrinkle-free face or full lips, but by its Irish “citizenship.” In its proposal to Allergan, the Viagra-maker whispered, “If we get together, we can really stiff the tax man.” In order to fulfill this goal, Pfizer would renounce …

David Ison: For decades, David Ison has worked to help push music and meditation into the realm of healing. This week’s excerpt comes from David’s audio program Chakra Illumination. As a classically trained musician, Sounds True producer Steve Lessard appreciated working with Ison on a program that intends to unlock the healing and transformative powers of music. Our chakras—each of which represent a rung on what Ison calls the “ladder of consciousness”—resonate with particular frequencies. Ison describes how music that resonates with the key signatures of each chakra can open these energy centers, revealing the “essences” that lie veiled beneath many layers of emotion, trauma, and attachment. Discover the wisdom hidden inside your energy anatomy through the resonant power of music.
Dr. Mao Shing Ni: Westerners who first encounter the concept of qi often regard it as something extraordinary, even supernatural—an energy available only to masters of spirituality or martial arts. Yet much of Traditional Chinese Medicine is based on an understanding of this vital life force as it operates in each and every one of us. When Sounds True producer Stephen Lessard recorded the audio program Qi Meditations, he was impressed by the way Dr. Mao Shing Ni was able to demystify qi and explain it in clear, simple language. In this selection, Dr. Mao explores the nature of qi, how it manifests as the yin and the yang, and how these energies are reflected in our bodies and our world.

Today Show: Chinese Medicine
Guest Speaker: Dr. Jason Elias, MA, LMT http://fiveelementhealing.net/
Jason Elias is here to introduce the power of Traditional Chinese Medicine, and the Five Element Healing approach to wellness. Each element, and the corresponding season of the year it embodies, brings us its special gifts and challenges. His website has been intentionally designed to highlight these elements and illuminate their relationship to the natural healing of the body, mind, and spirit. The Five Element system of healing is based on the presence of inner energy which, when flowing rightly, promotes health, and when blocked, can develop disease. In my forty years of practice, I have found that when the body is carefully nurtured, it has the innate wisdom to heal itself.

At least 1 in 4 of the 700,000 U.S. Veterans who served in the 1990-1991 Gulf War suffer from Gulf War Illness (GWI). Despite considerable research, effective treatments remain elusive. GWI refers to a complex of symptoms that typically include widespread chronic pain, persistent headache, memory and concentration problems, gastrointestinal difficulties, sleep disturbances and unexplained fatigue.
In its July 27 print edition, Time magazine ran a full-page color ad for smokeless tobacco. But what really got our attention were all the drug ads, which continue week after week, and presumably keep the faltering publication alive. The biggest ad, an inside-front-cover three-page spread, was for Xeljanz (tofacitinib citrate), which is aimed at people with rheumatoid arthritis. As …
A diagnosis of cancer is devastating. But cancer sufferers who have followed medical provider advice to undergo treatment with so-called cancer-fighting drugs may have unknowingly been exposed to the additional risk of stroke or other life-threatening medical event. Why is this happening? The danger is due to tainted cancer medication in the form of sterile injectable drugs that the manufacturer began …
