Paleo Foods Go Mainstream, Part 1
March 23, 2017
When 24-year-old Katlin Smith developed aches and pains, her doctors could provide no answers. After a friend reported benefits with an elimination diet, Katlin decided to try Paleo. So impressed was she with the efficacy of the diet at relieving her symptoms that she quit her job in a Big 8 accounting firm, and started a business making Paleo products--Simple Mills. After much trial and error in her test kitchen, she discovered ways to combine Paleo-compliant ingredients like almond flour that are delicious as well as wholesome. After just a few years, her company has become one of the fastest-growing natural products manufacturers in the country. She makes crackers, cookies, cake and bread mixes, and frostings--all free of preservatives, GMOs, emulsifiers, and 6 of the 8 most common food allergens. Her products have received multiple awards, and Smith was recently named to the Forbes 30 Under 30 Class of 2017. 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.
