And What’s Disproven?  

Talk by RWJ Medical School Researcher 

Dr. Beatrix Roemheld-Hamm, MD and PhD, Associate Professor at Robert Wood Johnson Medical School will report on research findings and on her approach to what is called “Integrative Medicine”, which treats the ‘whole person’ as body, mind and spirit. Her goal is how to help us achieve optimal health and healing by using a variety of effective modalities.

When: 11/27, 7:30pm
Where: 
Student Center, College Ave., Red Lion Café, bottom level

————————

We’ve all heard the health claims for such practices as acupuncture, herbal medicine, meditation, homeopathy and other non-traditional forms of treatment.  The National Institutes of Health has recognized the importance of investigating these claims and some of the results are in.  Dr. Beatrix Roemheld-Hamm, Associate Professor at Robert Wood Johnson Medical School will report on the findings and on her approach to what is called “Integrative Medicine” in a talk and discussion next Tuesday, November 27 at 7:30pm in the Red Lion Café, lower level of the Rutgers Student Center on College Avenue.

While some dismiss alternative medicine as unscientific and not worthy of investigation, others call traditional medicine rigid and subservient to the drug industry.  Dr. Hamm takes a reasoned approach in her teaching and in her private practice.  She will define the fields of complementary and alternative medicine (CAD) and integrative medicine (IM), which treats the ‘whole person’ as body, mind and spirit. Her goal is how to help patients achieve optimal health and healing by using a variety of effective modalities.

Dr. Hamm holds an MD and a PhD.  She is Associate Professor at UMDNJ-RWJ Medical School with appointments in the Dept. of Family Medicine and Community Health, the Dept. of Psychiatry and the Institute of Complementary and Alternative Medicine.  She also mentors graduate students in psychology on integrating behavioral health into family practice.  She has done research in how moderated breathing can affect blood pressure and in biofeedback techniques to treat asthma.

    Healthcare practices categorized as alternative may differ in their historical origin, theoretical basis, diagnostic technique, therapeutic practice and in their relationship to the medical mainstream.

    It is not better to select high-heeled shoe, if you are
    an obese. Style- Most of us looks at the design and style while buying any
    item. The Fashion Industry is totally focused on how people look and larger people do not
    figure on mainstream fashion’s radar.

  4. I would like to show some thanks to this writer just for bailing me out of this type of dilemma. As a result of scouting through the internet and meeting advice which were not powerful, I figured my entire life was well over. Being alive without the strategies to the difficulties you’ve fixed all through your main short article is a critical case, and the kind which may have in a negative way affected my entire career if I had not come across your site. Your main natural talent and kindness in taking care of all the stuff was excellent. I don’t know what I would’ve done if I hadn’t encountered such a point like this. I’m able to at this time look ahead to my future. Thanks so much for your high quality and effective help. I will not think twice to propose the blog to anybody who will need tips about this situation.
