Who Needs Dr. Oz in St. Louis, When We Have SLiiM?

Who Needs Dr. Oz? The St. Louis Institute of Integrative Medicine (SLiiM) has the answers regarding your optimal healthcare … right here in our own backyard! A consortium of medical practitioners from a variety of disciplines, SLiiM is dedicated to prevention, wellness and finding the root cause instead of just treating the symptoms.
Nearly 50% of Americans take prescription medications without fully understanding the underlying cause of their symptoms. As a patient, how would your life be different if you could make knowledgeable choices about your healthcare regarding treatment and prevention?

SLiiM is a non-profit organization helping to educate fellow practitioners and the public on preventive and integrative medicine. Their goal is to implement a restorative model for optimal healthcare versus symptom management. SLiiM practitioners are comprised of many medical disciplines such as Medical Doctors, Doctors of Osteopathy, Chiropractic, Naturopathic Doctors, Dentists, PhDs, Nurses, Pharmacists, and Massage Therapists.

To collaborate with medical practitioners and educate the community, SLiiM will hold its third annual symposium, The Anti-Aging Prescription; Transforming Your Future from Treatment to Prevention, Saturday, October 13th, 2012. Presentations and exhibits will feature the most cutting edge research on functional and integrative medicine.

Participants, including the public, students and clinicians, will gain simple lifestyle tools for diagnosis, prevention and treatment. A nutritious gluten-free lunch will be included and practitioners will be offered continuing education credits.

Addressing the newest alternative treatment solutions for weight gain, depression, fatigue, pain, GI, menopause and headaches, four medical experts will explore how many diseases are not only preventable but reversible.

Bryan Warner, MD, board certified in Family Practice and an active Fellow of the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine, who specializes in Bio-Medical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT), will present: From Hormones to Harmony: Separating Fact From Fiction.
