Sleep Disordered Breathing, Part 1
September 5, 2017
Sleep Disordered Breathing (SDB) may be the overlooked missing link to many maladies including chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, headaches, obesity, anxiety, depression, TMJ, hypertension, diabetes, heart disease and even Alzheimer's. In children and adolescents, it may cause Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). Dr. Michael Gelb, co-author of "Gasp," describes the range of symptoms airway disorders can provoke. Why are they so prevalent? Is it something about our modern lifestyles? Is SDB the same as sleep apnea? How is it diagnosed? Even if you don't snore, could you have airway problems? Who should suspect they might have SDB? Why do airway problems damage the heart and brain? How do they rev up pain pathways? What's their relationship to weight gain? What treatment options exist for patients with SDB? How are their lives transformed? Click HERE for part 2.

The Potential Benefits of Medical Marijuana, Part 1
December 1, 2016
Dr. Rachna Patel is a pioneer in research and application of medical marijuana. She is careful to distinguish her practice from “card mills” that indiscriminately hand out prescriptions for marijuana to mostly recreational users. Rather, she tailors various formulas comprising differing ratios and dosages of THC and cannabidiol according to patients' medical conditions. She finds many of her patients with pain conditions respond well to medical marijuana: fibromyalgia, arthritis, and neuropathy. Many are able to taper their prescription meds due to the pain relief they obtain. She describes topical application of marijuana for psoriasis and sore joints. Patients with MS experience decreased spasticity and patients with Parkinson’s Disease see improvements in tremors. Patients with anxiety enjoy freedom from panic attacks. Medical marijuana is well-suited for insomnia. It ameliorates GI pain in IBS and colitis. What patients are NOT candidates for medical marijuana? Can it be used in kids and adolescents? How might it paradoxically help ADHD? Do patients feel stoned? Does it create addiction or dependency? What about "amotivational syndrome" that is reported in chronic pot smokers? Does it provide support to cancer patients? Might it possess anti-inflammatory effects? Why does Dr. Patel eschew use of inhaled marijuana products? Should users trust the internet or should they access prescription marijuana via official licensed dispensaries? Click HERE for part 2.
