International Society of Cardiac and Mental Health (ISCMH) is an internationally recognized professional society that was established to promote the holistic connection between cardiac, mental and spiritual health. ISCMH was founded on October 31, 2018 by Dr. Kewei Ma, PhD, MD, ND who has been in the investigation of the linking between cardiac and mental health for over twenty years. Dr. Ma obtained PhD at department of medicine at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver. Graduated from medical school in 1994 and licensed in China, he is certified by the Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduate (ECFMG) in USA. Dr. Ma is also licensed as naturopathic doctor in Minnesota USA and Ontario Canada.
The scope of ISCMH is to include all healthcare providers and licensed practitioners that works in the fields of heart, mental or spiritual health. The heart definition is inclusive but beyond traditional cardiovascular health, and includes the traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) heart that governs mind and spirit.
The mental health affects cardiac health in many ways including heart rate and rhythm, electric conduction system, blood pressure and ejection fraction. Cardiac health affects mental health through the blood flow including vascular health, endocrine, lipid and cholesterol, blood pressure, autonomous nerve system and even more profound TCM meridians.
The mission of ISCMH is to promote the awareness of the connections of cardiac and mental health, which are largely neglected by practitioners of either of the two fields. ISCMH emphasize the spirituality in the Cardiac Mental Spirituality Axis. ISCMH values the complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) approaches in helping patients of cardiac and mental health conditions such as hypertension, hyperlipidemia, anxiety and addiction, etc.
ISCMH owns the Integrative Cardiology Institute with the mission of teaching cardiovascular health that is a daunting science to alternative healthcare providers, and cardiac mental spiritual axis health that admits all licensed practitioners. ISCMH owns its domain CardiacMental.com.
ISCMH member should commit a $50USD annual membership fee for expense coverage. The International Journal of Cardiac, Mental Spiritual Axis Health is calling for manuscripts.
ISCMH accommodates all origins of race, culture, religion, age and areas.
ISCMH spirituality is the love that is built on heart, mind and soul.
