Fibromyalgia - Unique Traditional Chinese & Western Medical Treatment Clinic Opens (NA) Published on: September 21st, 2005 12:04am by: IvyonOak (OPENPRESS) September 21, 2005 -- When Janine Blackman, M.D., PhD walked away from her position as Medical Director at the University of Maryland Center for Integrative Medicine (UMCIM) September 8, 2005 in order to start a clinic in our nation’s capital combining traditional Chinese Medicine with conventional Western medical approaches to treat fibromyalgia, she left behind the safety and security of a senior and prestigious position in one of the largest NIH research centers in America. Fibromyalgia, previously thought to have no cure by most Western medical practitioners, is a debilitating stress-induced condition that is characterized by muscle and joint pain and fatigue that lasts for many months, often accompanied by irritable bowel syndrome, sleep disturbance, headaches, anxiety, depression and a variety of other symptoms The new Gilbert Clinic consists of Dr. Blackman and her partners Jonathan Gilbert, NCAAOM (National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine) and Anita Bains, APRN, BC, (specializing in psychotherapeutic treatment of chronic afflictions, including fibromyalgia). With exceptional backgrounds and experience in western medicine, Traditional Chinese medicine and psychotherapy, the partners have combined ancient and modern medicine to successfully treat the disease. An estimated 12 million Americans have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia but many millions more may have the stressed related warning signs of acute fatigue that could lead to the disease. Typically those occupations with high incidents of burnout are the breeding ground for the disease, where stress related conditions can shorten and even end a highly successful career. Brokers, financial managers, lawyers, politicians, business executives, investment managers, scientists, sports stars and related professions are typical of the many potential jobs where pressure to perform and sustain performance can result in the disease. Organizations employing such executives have long ignored the tremendous financial losses that can be incurred when they lose the services of these individuals in whom they have invested many years and significant expense. A successful intervention program before the disease is able to destroy the effectiveness of the people could very well be one of the most cost-effective benefits a company could provide. The Gilbert Clinic and the unique blend of Traditional Chinese and Western medicine, combined with psychotherapeutic treatment, has demonstrated for the first time that conditions of fibromyalgia can be successfully treated and overcome, allowing the individual to continue with their career. It is the only integrated program to have demonstrated successful results. The unique business model, an innovative treatment strategy, and a commitment on the part of the partners to “get people well and keep people well” make the Gilbert Clinic a radical departure from previous maintenance programs offered to suffers of the disease. It is certain to be a closely watched, controversial and innovative effort to attack a growing problem in America. The public interest would be served by sharing this story about this unique clinic, innovative program, and exceptional staff dedicated to helping people in a way that is least intrusion, highly confidential, and committed to breaking dependence on prescribed drugs for sufferers of this disease. Fibromyalgia is a tragic condition that preys on the most productive and successful people in society destroying their lives and careers. They need to know extraordinary success in overcoming the disease has been achieved and is available. For information contact The Gilbert Clinic Professional Free Press Release News Wire
