State Medical Board Attacks On Integrative MD’s and DO’s
|Integrative Practitioners Working Toward a Level Playing Field|
|Integrative practitioners have had an uphill battle in protecting their right to practice medicine in a manner that assesses the whole patient—mind, body, lifestyle, and genetics. The right to exercise independent judgment in developing a course of treatment for a patient that exceeds the conventional model of care has been under the microscope by the allopathic community for years and many integrative practitioners have paid the price. |

Tell the Louisiana State Board of Medical Examiners to Stop Harassing Integrative Physicians!
The LSBME has demonstrated a clear bias against the CAM and integrative physicians. In one recent case, it targeted a minor record-keeping violation and assigned penalties far beyond what such small infractions usually incur and tried to suspend the doctor even when a court had ruled that the violations didn’t occur!
Tell the Texas Legislative Oversight Committees and Gov. Rick Perry to Stop the TMB’s Harassment of Dr. Burzynski!
For nearly three decades, Dr. Stanislaw Burzynski has been battling the FDA and the Texas Medical Board (TMB) over his important, nontoxic, gene-targeted cancer therapy called antineoplastons. He has won every court battle, and has been vindicated in every hearing.
But now the TMB is making yet another attempt to revoke Dr. Burzynski’s medical license which, if successful, would result in the closure of his clinic, the abandonment of all his patients.
Stop the Washington State Medical Board’s Persecution of Dr. Wright!
The Washington State Medical Quality Assurance Commission (MQAC) is blaming Dr. Jonathan Wright for a mistake that was actually made by the Commission. Dr. Wright’s clinic hired an MD whose Washington State license, according to the MQAC website, was “pending,” which allowed him to practice under close supervision according to the law. MQAC has now scheduled a three-day hearing March 18–20, and Dr. Wright’s license will be at stake. Please contact your governor and your legislators about MQAC blaming—and threatening Dr. Wright with penalties—for a problem MQAC itself created!
