We Are Reclaiming Medicine

We seek properly constituted state medical boards

The board must include integrative physicians as well as conventional doctors. All members must serve without even the appearance of a conflict of interest. Each member must promptly and fully disclose all potential conflicts of interest.

We seek properly functioning state medical boards

The medical boards must support and defend the highest standards of both conventional and integrative health care as well as the doctor-patient relationship. They must avoid governmental and pharmaceutical industry influence and coercion. The boards must welcome new advances in medical practice based on good science, individual physicians’ clinical experiences, respect for diversity of thinking and truly human values. Its disciplinary procedures must honor principles of due process, fairness, and innocence until proven guilty. The boards must not discriminate against
tenets of any practice area or specialty, including integrative physicians.  Board members have personal responsibility for their actions and actions of board staff.

We seek free speech for patients & physicians

We speak freely. We defend the constitutional right of all patients to speak freely. We defend the constitutional right of all physicians to speak freely to their patients and to speak publicly on any topic and from a viewpoint that honors the doctor-patient relationship.

We seek individualized care and treatment

Practicing medicine requires patient-specific enhancements and adjustments to general standards. General mandates, guidelines, “standards of care,” and “best practices” cannot provide the right answer in every detail to every issue for every patient and their specific medical history and needs. Physicians often need to fill the gaps. And, such general rules and standards should never be followed blindly, ignoring the patient’s specific medical history and needs. What is good for one person or for many people is not necessarily good for a specific patient. Therefore, physicians have a right and duty to provide, and patients have an inalienable right to receive, individualized medical care and treatment of the whole person that supplements or differs from general standards if the care or treatment is consistent with the Care and Treatment Principles below.
