There were over 450 physicians, nurses and pharmacists that attended the doctor’s lecture this morning. Here are just a few comments from the doctors in attendance, as compiled by the continuing medical education (CME) provider:
Dr Cushman, Thank you for an excellent and well organized presentation. You helped “fill the gaps” in my knowledge of this area. I especially like your ending “Blind Man and Elephant” story as this is what I use to explain to patients and clients why an integrative medical approach is so important.

I recently was a panelist at the American Association of University Women to discuss holistic approaches to women’s health, where I found myself talking a lot about purpose in life. What is the point of investing in your health, being proactive, and preventing health challenges down the road? The point is so that you can feel strong enough to fulfill your purpose(s) in life.
So, it was timely to see this new research study (NOT that we need to spend millions on research studies to prove what we all know intuitively) on the value of having a purpose in life. Click here to read more about the study that included 7,000 Americans, as published by the BBC News.
For some, one’s purpose in life is to go above and beyond the call of duty to improve our local community and the quality of life for children and their families. The Above and Beyond Awards gala does an excellent job of honoring those people, in the trenches, who are doing just that. The local Above and Beyond Awards gala is being held this June 21st, 2014 at the Wyndham Avenue of the Arts Hotel. Click here to register and please contact me at 949-715-9321 if you are interested or know someone who is interested in participating as a sponsor at the event. The list of honorees is impressive and learning about their tireless contributions is humbling and inspiring!

New research from Karolinska Institute in Sweden shows that omega-3 fatty acids in dietary supplements can cross the blood brain barrier in people with Alzheimer’s disease, affecting known markers for both the disease itself and inflammation. The findings are presented in theJournal of Internal Medicine, and strengthen the evidence that omega-3 may benefit certain forms of this seriously debilitating disease. Click here to read more.
This is yet another published study that demonstrates how proper fatty acid balance in the blood stream can prevent and treat diseases with an inflammatory component. The research to date points to benefit of the essential fatty acids in the following conditions:
- Endocrine influence
- Glucose maintenance
- Lipids and triglycerides
- Metabolic parameters
- Primary prevention
- Secondary prevention
Children’s Health and Development
- Adolescent and teen health
- ASD – Autism spectrum disorders
- Attention, learning, and behavior
- Disease prevention
- Neurological development
Female Health and Reproduction
- Peri-and post-menopause
- Pregnancy & breastfeeding
- Puberty and menstrual years
- Acute infections
- Chronic immune deficiencies
Joint and Tissue Inflammation
- Intestinal health
- Joint flexibility & mobility
Lifestyle and Healthy Living
- Alcohol and tobacco use
- Body fat/weight
- Healthful living
- CNS Developement
- Cognitive function/agent
- Depression and mood
- Mental balance
In our concierge medical practice we test the blood for over 30 fatty acids to identify what specifically is out of balance and needs treatment. In some patients, too many of the omega 3 fatty acids can suppress important components of immune function and can promote tumor growth. In some patients their level of trans fatty acids (hydrogenated fats) are the culprit in blocking cell to cell communication. Other patients may only need DHA but not GLA. And so forth. This is why testing, and getting an individualized report on what your body needs, will lead to a more positive outcome in terms of managing your long term health.
