Program Study (SIPS) will include participants
undergoing chemotherapy for colorectal cancer who will receive one of
two Supportive Intervention Programs: brief yoga skills training

Diabetes Care Center
According to data from the American Diabetes
25.8 million people in our country have diabetes. For a
moment reflect on these concepts:
blood glucose monitoring, insulin injections, walking, eating well,
and meditation. How do these pieces fit into the puzzle of
diabetes management? We are all familiar with tools needed to
manage diabetes such as blood glucose monitors, and healthy foods,
but what about meditation?
When we see patients at the Diabetes Care Center, we
assess their readiness to learn about diabetes management and then we
consider an individual's barriers to making lifestyle changes.
For most people, the thought of having a diabetes
diagnosis along with checking blood sugars one to four times each day
evokes a stress response. Read more from Donna

for Papers: EUJIM Special Issue - Integrity in Integrative
Integrity in integrative medicine can refer to integrity
of the practitioner (standard issues relevant for all professionals,
and unique issues such as the ethics of selling supplements in one's
practice, or ordering special tests done in one's own lab or
radiology department), the ethics/integrity of walking the talk
(living a healthy lifestyle), and the ethics of issues such as
discussions about safety and effectiveness of conventional care
There are also unique ethical issues in research in integrative
medicine (e.g., using substances or practices available in the
community or over the counter - should participants pay? What effects
might this have on adherence, outcomes, etc).

Functional Medicine in Clinical Practice Conference

epidemic of chronic disease threatens to compromise the health of our
population and the effectiveness and economics of our healthcare
system. Because of its focus on acute care, the current medical model
fails to confront both the causes of and solutions for the chronic
disease epidemic, and must be replaced with a model of comprehensive
care and prevention that is systems-based, integrative,
patient-centered, and much more effective. AFMCP has been designed to
meet that challenge. Learn more!
