Sick Building Syndrome, Part 1

Alan Bell was a successful prosecuting attorney when he suddenly developed a mystery illness. After consulting numerous specialists, he finally met one who informed him that he had likely been poisoned. His medical odyssey is described in the new book "Poisoned."

The only answer was a lonely sojourn in a chemical-free dwelling in the middle of the Arizona desert. How did Bell move toward recovery? How has his experience led to his environmental activism? Bell details the top ten chemicals to avoid; the 20 lifestyle tips that help prevent and reverse environmental illness.

ENCORE: Dr. Leo Galland’s “The Allergy Solution,” Part 1
November 25, 2016
Dr. Leo Galland’s, "The Allergy Solution: Unlock the Surprising, Hidden Truth About Why You Are Sick and How to Get Well.” The book seeks to empower patients to discover the hidden causes of their allergic symptoms via a detailed self-questionnaire, and to remediate them. Dr. Galland goes beyond sneezing, wheezing, and itching to characterize a wide variety of maladies and afflictions as allergic in origin. Why are allergies so much more pervasive in modern times? Allergies can be divided into indoor, outdoor and internal; Outdoor allergies comprise pollens, molds, animal dander and industrial pollutants; indoor allergies are on the rise due to our toxic home and work environments; and internal allergies arise when we turn our disrupted GI tracts into portable allergy factories. Poor diet, over-dependency on medications, and toxic chemicals create a perfect storm for allergies. Dr. Galland explains the rationale for a 3-day “Power Wash” which he administers to new patients to unmask dietary allergic triggers and revive their detoxification pathways. What role do “leaky gut” and “dysbiosis” play in promoting allergies? Why are probiotics alone not enough to restore GI balance for allergy sufferers? Dr. Galland discusses the 5 major food culprits: wheat, corn, soy, dairy and yeast; What role do dietary bioflavonoids from fruits, vegetables and spices play as potent allergy quenchers? How do allergies lead to a vicious cycle of weight gain and inflammation? Can brain allergies be responsible for depression, ADHD, brain-fog, even psychosis? Fascinating case studies from Dr. Galland’s practice illustrate the power of proper allergy sleuthing. Click HERE for part 2.
