  1. Integrative Medicine Recent Developments in Medicine

  2. Empirical Observations over Thousands of Years Scientific Method & Case-Based Medicine Comparison of East & West East West • Technology of Medicine • Art of Medicine • Holistic View • Molecular & Organ View • Circular Logic • Energetic • Linear Logic • Mechanistic

  3. Science versus Art • Over the last 10 years, there has been no change in mean life expectancy in human beings, dog or cats • There is an increase in incidence of inflammatory diseases and cancer over our ability to detect the conditions

  4. What’s Been Happening? • CAVM Guideline were re-written in a less than supportive manner • Medicine has begun to look at itself with greater scrutiny

  5. New findings • The basic dietary recommendations for human beings have been found lacking • Atkin’s low-carbohydrate diet is vindicated

  6. Obese Nation • Recent study showed that being obese is more likely to cause a heart attack than smoking cigarettes • We are fat!!!

  7. New Findings • Study (sham-controlled) showed that surgery on human knees created more damage than corrected, unless there was clear ligament damage

  8. New Findings • Major multi-center study showed that estrogen replacement put more women at risk for heart disease than it helped at menopause

  9. Based upon the AP point selected Based upon the method of stimulation Dry needles Electrical AP Aquapuncture Hemoacupuncture Based upon the length of stimulation Low-rate, twisting stimulation of GV26 leads to endorphin response, while high-frequency needling of GV26 leads to epinephrine response Basic Tenets of AP

  10. Effects of Acupuncture • Using manganese-enhanced fMRI (functional magnetic resonance imaging), visual effects can be seen in human and animal neural tissues Baseline Mannitol Mn Infusion EA GB34

  11. Effects of Acupuncture • Activation of cortex is site specific • Leads initially to specific effects GB34 ST36

  12. Effects of Acupuncture • Activation has temporal effects • Longer stimulation activates more cortical structures • Leads to broader effects 5 minutes 20 minutes

  13. Effects of Acupuncture • In separate study, analgesic AP points were compared to non-analgesic points • Analgesic AP altered brain regions involved in pain modulation • PAG, MnR, hypothalamus, thalamus • Non-Analgesic AP did not activate same areas

  14. Method of Stimulation • Stimulation of BL-20 (the SP association point) in horses led to analgesia using dry needles or electrical AP. • Only EA increased release of endrophins into the blood.

  15. Medication Timing & TCM 24-hour Clock

  16. One Medicine • Proven medicine or unproven medicine • Scientific or unscientific • Good or bad

  17. What is Non-Traditional Medicine? • Any form of medicine not taught in veterinary school • Medicine out of the mainstream

  18. Why Alternative Medicine? • People are asking for it for themselves and for their pets • Offers approaches which might work when traditional medicine fails

  19. Use of Alternatives in Human Medicine • Most patients are usually women who are between 35-49 years of age, affluent and well educated • Results in around $278 billion in annual sales

  20. Use of Alternatives in Human Medicine • 629 million visits to alternative medicine practitioners in 1997 • Exceeds the number of visits to primary care physicians

  21. What is Integrative Medicine? • Term coined in Human Medicine for utilizing both traditional and non-traditional modes of therapy • Similar to Holistic Veterinary Medicine

  22. Uses a bigger medicine bag Includes all of traditional medicine and all of alternative medicine Adds everything that will benefit the patient Integrative Medicine

  23. Integrative Medicine • Treatment of MIND, BODY & SPIRIT • Offers medical choices where choices exist

  24. Integrative Medicine • Base your medical decisions on: • what is best for the patient • the client’s wishes • your abilities • your confidence and experience in treating other cases • Still starts with a strong basic understanding of traditional medicine

  25. Integrative Medicine • Enter a partnership with client to help maintain animal’s optimal health • Pay attention to: • Exercise • Diet • Supplement • Vaccinations

  26. Exercise • Need 20 minutes of constant aerobic exercise 2 times a week and 1 hour (at slower pace) once a week • Walking • Swimming • Alternate days of hard and soft work-outs

  27. Let food be your medicine and medicine be your food Hippocrates Many of today’s chronic diseases can be traced to diet No commercial dog or cat food is as nutritious as fresh, home-prepared food Dogs & cats have no carbohydrate requirement Diet

  28.

  40. Static Magnet Therapy N • As old as the earth • Egyptian scrolls (circa 2800 BC) contained references to loadstones • Cleopatra used them on her forehead to prevent aging • Hindus used magnets 1000s of years BC S You Are Here

  41. Static Magnet Therapy • Magnetism is defined as the alignment of a permeable material so that the molecules face in a uniform direction (i.e., north facing one direction and south facing the opposite). Bar Magnet (unipolar)

  42.
