The Link Between Diet and Inflammation, Part 1
August 31, 2017
Dr. David Seaman, author of "The DeFlame Diet," was the first to identify the link between diet and inflammation in a landmark 2002 journal article entitled: "The diet-induced pro-inflammatory state." What medical disorders are caused by inflammation? What is "inflamm-aging"? How do foods drive inflammation in the body? Dr. Seaman highlights sugars, flour products, and vegetable oils as the main culprits. Contrary to popular belief, he contends, meats are not generally pro-inflammatory. What foods constitute "dietary crack"? Can certain foods like gluten and dairy stoke inflammation in susceptible individuals? What foods are anti-inflammatory? How do sleep, exercise, and stress affect our inflammation levels? Why does excess body fat perpetuate inflammation? 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.
