Why Do We Overeat? Part 1
March 16, 2017
"The Hungry Brain: Outsmarting the Instincts That Make Us Overeat." Author and neuroscientist Stephan Guyenet, Ph.D., shares cutting-edge research to answer one simple, yet confounding question: Why do we overeat and what can we do about it? What lessons do primitive hunter-gatherers offer us in terms of the evolution of our appetite mechanisms? What is leptin and how does it regulate eating behavior? What’s the take-home message of the failure of “Biggest Loser” contestants to maintain their extreme weight loss? What food qualities impel us to overeat? What foods provide the most satiety? What eating strategies can we employ to outsmart our hungry brains? What’s the role of sleep in governing eating behaviors? How does chronic stress undermine our dietary success? Are the Dietary Guidelines for America (DGA) really responsible for America’s epidemic of obesity? Are carbs the culprits? Or is it fat? Click HERE for part 2.

A Remarkable Breakthrough for the Treatment of Depression and Pain, Part 1
March 9, 2017
The ketamine story. Dr. Steven Mandel is a Board-Certified Anesthesiologist and President and Founder of the Ketamine Clinics of Los Angeles (www.ketamineclinics.com). Ketamine is a short-acting anesthetic that’s administered intravenously and has a safe track record, even in children and frail elderly patients. It produces a “dissociative state.” Experience with returning military personnel suffering PTSD suggested its benefits in treating depression. Dr. Mandel has administered thousands of treatments with high degrees of success in depression not responsive to psychotherapy or ordinary medications—even in bipolar disorder and suicidality. It is also helpful for pain syndromes like trigeminal neuralgia, migraines, and Complex Regional Pain Syndrome. It may help reinforce recovery in substance abusers and alcoholics. Ketamine is also being researched for MS. How does it work? What’s it like to receive a treatment? How soon will you feel the effects? How long do they last? How many treatments do patients usually receive? Is it safe and are there any side effects? Is mainstream medicine beginning to embrace it? Click HERE for part 2.
