The Marion Institute today announced an upcoming Biological Medicine conference, lead by Dr. Thomas Rau, MD., which will draw attention to alternative approaches to the treatment of degenerative diseases Â? such as arthritis Â? without the need for nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs [NSAID]. In recent weeks, popular NSAIDs have been pulled from the market after trials showed that long-term use of the drugs may double the risk of heart attacks and strokes among patients with heart disease.

The Marion Institute today announced an upcoming Biological Medicine conference, lead by Dr. Thomas Rau, MD., which will draw attention to alternative approaches to the treatment of degenerative diseases – such as arthritis – without the need for nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID). In recent weeks, popular NSAIDs have been pulled from the market after trials showed that long-term use of the drugs may double the risk of heart attacks and strokes among patients with heart disease.

“Rather than treating particular symptoms, Biological Medicine looks for the ‘root causes’ of those symptoms,” said Dr. Rau, Rheumatologist and Medical Director of the world-famous Paracelsus Klinik, in Lustmühle, Switzerland. Dr. Rau is a leading expert in Biological Medicine, a new understanding of health and the treatment of disease. “So-called ‘non-researched’ remedies such as Echinacea, Hypericum and Viscum [mistletoe] have been used for thousands of years and proven effective for millions of patients – and yet are still considered unproven by many in the mainstream medical community.”

Dr. Rau’s three-day conference will be preceded on Thursday evening with a free lecture entitled, “An Introduction to Biological Medicine – The Future for Natural Healing.” Friday’s session will focus on delivering the latest Biological Medicine information to practitioners. Finally, Saturday and Sunday sessions will be open to those seeking a deeper understanding of alternative treatments to degenerative diseases such as arthritis, multiple sclerosis, chronic fatigue and hepatitis C.

The events, being held December 2nd through 5th, are sponsored by The Marion Institute. Thursday’s lecture will be held at the Providence Biltmore Hotel in Providence, Rhode Island. The Friday, Saturday and Sunday sessions will be held at the Institute in Marion, Massachusetts.

The Biological Medicine Network [BMN], a program of the Marion Institute, provides Biological Medicine information, seminars, workshops and a support/referral network for both patients and practitioners. “By working with the innate wisdom of the body and the natural life-force within and around us,” said BMN Director Barbara Christian, “Biological Medicine frees our own natural healing systems to do what they were designed to do.”

About The Biological Medicine Network

The Biological Medicine Network (BMN), a program of the Marion Institute, provides Biological Medicine information, seminars, workshops and a support/referral network for both patients and practitioners. Biological Medicine blends the most time-honored methods of healing such as homeopathy, Ayurveda and traditional Chinese medicine with the latest diagnostic techniques. By working with the innate wisdom of the body, Biological Medicine treats the whole person: physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. An imbalance in any one of these aspects can result in disease. Thus, Biological Medicine looks at root causes for any illness and works with the body’s own natural healing forces to restore health. The BMN coordinates all patient referrals for North America to the Paracelsus Klinik in Lustmühle, Switzerland. Director Dr. Thomas Rau, a leading expert in European Biological Medicine, runs the Klinik where people are successfully treated for many different conditions, including cancer, very often without surgery, chemotherapy or radiation. In addition, BMN was created by the Marion Institute to provide information for patients, promote teaching seminars and lectures with Dr. Rau as well as to establish a support network for both patients and practitioners. The BMN continues to grow and is becoming a vibrant and vital network of medical practitioners, patients and resources in the United States. For more information, please call the BMN office within the Marion Institute at 508.748.0816.
