Methylation — A Nutrition Revolution, Part 1
February 23, 2017
Methylation—everything you ever wanted to know. Dr. Kara Fitzgerald discusses one of the least-understood and most controversial topics that promises to revolutionize the field of nutrition. Methylation is a ubiquitous process that turns on, or turns off DNA expression, regulates the synthesis of many essential substances within the body, and breaks down hormones, medications, and toxins. It strongly influences epigenetics—the process by which the environment shapes the expression of genes. What are the limits of genetic testing for shedding light on methylation status? Do all patients with “methylation defects” according to genetic tests (like MTHFR) require mega-dosing of B vitamins? Can there be too much of a good thing when it comes to methylation? What natural substances act as “methylation adaptogens,” keeping methylation within an optimal, safe range? How do you go about testing for methylation efficiency? What nutrients besides B vitamins promote methylation? Does a normal homocysteine always indicate optimal methylation? Can lifestyle factors—diet, stress, and exercise—influence methylation? What medications and toxins impair methylation? Which health conditions call for methylation status evaluation?

Living Well with Chronic Autoimmune Disease, Part 1
February 14, 2017
"The Autoimmune Wellness Handbook: A DIY Guide to Living Well with Chronic Disease" by MickeyTrescott and Angie Alt. Mickey and Angie are autoimmune disease sufferers and nutritional therapy consultants who learned through personal experience that diet and lifestyle are crucial to recovery. Autoimmune disorders are strikingly prevalent, especially among women. Many suffer from subclinical autoimmunity, which eludes diagnosis. Symptoms may be attributed to anxiety or depression in the absence of confirmatory blood tests, which only emerge after the diseases become full-blown. It’s best to identify and head off autoimmunity early, before serious damage occurs. Patients often need to be their own advocates for proper diagnosis and care. What is it about our modern Western lifestyles that contributes to the pervasiveness of autoimmunity? A comprehensive lifestyle strategy comprising stress management, support, movement, sleep optimization and diet can go a long way towards ameliorating symptoms. Why is the Paleo Diet a cornerstone of autoimmune wellness? Why are nightshades problematic for many sufferers? Click HERE for part 2.

Vaccine Safety Challenged, Part 1
February 9, 2017
Dr. Lawrence Palevsky, integrative pediatrician, pushes back on the assertion that vaccines are free of harmful effects. They contain harmful substances like mercury, aluminum and formaldehyde, and polysorbate 80 that have never undergone adequate safety studies when injected; they may challenge the immune system to go into “overdrive” promoting autoimmunity and neurological consequences; and the vaccines themselves may offer imperfect protection which could actually make viruses and bacteria more dangerous. Dr. Palevsky believes that in our rush to conquer infectious diseases, we have ignored the potential harms of immunization. He points to the unprecedented pervasiveness of neurodevelopmental disorders in children, which now affect 1 in 6. “There’s no such thing as a ‘safe’ vaccine," he concludes. What options exist for concerned parents? Are vaccine “refuseniks” contributing to the re-emergence of mumps, measles, and whooping cough? Why are scientists and medical professionals who question immunization treated like dangerous heretics? What can be expected from the appointment by President Trump of Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. to head up a vaccine advisory council? Click HERE for part 2.
