Rethinking Medicine

Biological medicine offers a common sense understanding of the principles of health – why we get sick and how we can support our body become well. Founded in 1997, the Biological Medicine Network (BMN) is dedicated to the vision of complete health and wellbeing through the advancement, accessibility and widening availability of biological medicine in North America.

Clinical Studies Support Health Benefits of Supplements

Evaluation of the Effects of Neptune Krill Oil on the Clinical Course of Hyperlipidemia

The results of the present study demonstrate within high levels of confidence that krill oil is effective for the management of hyperlipidemia by significantly reducing total cholesterol, LDL, and triglycerides, and increasing HDL levels. At lower and equal doses, krill oil was significantly more effective than fish oil for the reduction of glucose, triglycerides, and LDL levels.

Clinical Investigation of the Protective Effects of Palm Vitamin E Tocotrienols on Brain White Matter

Vitamin E is a general term representing 2 classes of compounds, namely tocopherols and tocotrienols. Tocotrienols, but not tocopherols, have been reported to possess neuroprotective properties at concentrations within the physiological relevant range. Using hippocampal HT4 neuronal cells and immature primary cortical neurons, Sen et al1 and Khanna et al2 showed that a-tocotrienol at nanomolar concentrations was able to block glutamate-induced neuronal cell death by suppressing early activation of c-Src kinase and 12-lipoxygenase pathway, which is independent of its antioxidant property.


Biological Medicine Knows the Story & the Answers

After well over 15 years of community pain and debate an Epidemic is still being pushed underground?

Thank you again to Abby Martin and that team in DC. Where else to hear about these issues seen daily in our Integrated/Natural/Holistic Medicine Clinics?

Also watch Under Our Skin – a touching and revealing award-winning movie about this very important story. What progress since that release in 2008? Also see "Dallas Buyers Club" – a historical lesson about a problem that is only getting worse today.

A Natural Medicine Success Story

I had a male patient age 58 who presented at my clinic with a prostate cancer diagnosis. He brought along his labs which showed Gleason score 6 – 7, PSA of 87.

After the interview I ordered an immediate dietary change, added homeopathic and nutritional remedies, and anticipated a dental examination with a suitable practitioner to evaluate possible remediation.


Top Hollywood Doctor Utilizes Biological Medicine


Dr Khalsa is an MD trained at Yale, who applies holistic natural medicine approaches. These principles are consistent with the Suisse Biological Medicine modality and technologies used at Paracelsus Clinic by Dr Thomas Rau MD and that team. Dr Khalsa has utilized this approach, along with selected aligned innovations, because it is contributing to better outcomes for difficult cases.

This global convergence of independent successful results from a common Biological Medicine theme approach is continuing evidence that keeps us excited for the future.
