The Father of the Modern Science of Immunology, Part 1
July 12, 2016
This year, we celebrate the centennial of the death of Elie Metchnikoff, the Russian zoologist who is recognized today as the father of the modern science of immunology. Metchnikoff discovered the white blood cells that act as cellular “pacmen” to devour foreign invaders like viruses and bacteria. But Metchnikoff is probably best known today as the originator of our understanding of the role probiotics play in human health and disease. Metchnikoff kicked off a sensation in 1904 when he touted live cultures as an anti-aging elixir, igniting a world-wide yogurt craze. Metchnikoff was one of the first to systematically study the aging process; he linked it to “autointoxication” in the intestines. While his theories fell into disrepute in the mid-Twentieth Century, were he to be alive today he would be gratified with the current resurgence of interest in the Microbiome and its impact on health and longevity. The modern concepts of “endotoxins” and “leaky gut” owe a debt of gratitude to Metchnikoff’s seminal discoveries. At first greeted with skepticism and derision, Metchnikoff was ultimately awarded the Nobel Prize for his research. Click HERE for part 2.

Clinical Focus: Sulforaphane, A Shield Against Many Cancers, Part 1
July 6, 2016
Sulforaphane is one of the most exciting nutrients in the integrated medicine repertoire. It is chemo-preventive—it provides a shield against many cancers. It also may be neuro-protective, counteracting stroke, traumatic brain injury, Parkinson’s Disease and Alzheimer’s Disease. It has the advantage, unlike other known anti-inflammatory nutraceuticals, to readily cross the blood-brain barrier. In a recent study, it was found to enhance behavioral and verbal performance in autistic subjects. Why is it a bad idea to overcook broccoli and other cabbage family vegetables? What if you suffer gas and bloating or can’t stand the bitter taste of raw cruciferous vegetables? What does the research say about the bio-availability of sulforaphane supplements? Can sulforaphane supplements or cruciferous vegetables damage the thyroid? Click HERE for part 2.
