Relief for Autoimmune Disorders, Part 1
April 6, 2017
Dr. Terry Wahls discusses her new book, "The Wahls Protocol: Cooking for Life--The Revolutionary Modern Paleo Plan to Treat All Chronic Autoimmune Conditions." Dr. Wahls was a conventional physician who developed multiple sclerosis which was unresponsive even to powerful MS drugs. Though initially skeptical of natural medicine, she felt she had little recourse when she became wheelchair-bound, and turned to a Paleo diet. Within weeks her symptoms improved, and after several years she has achieved lasting remission. Her research led her to formulate the Wahls Protocol which has brought relief to thousands of sufferers of autoimmune disorders. How pervasive is autoimmunity? Why might diet aid recovery? Dr. Wahls dispels some misconceptions about the Paleo diet: Is it all meat? Very low carb? Are nightshades and beans permitted? Why the emphasis on bone broths? Organ meats? Seaweed? Coconut? Must all food be organic, grass-fed or wild-caught? How does the Wahls diet square with the ultra low-fat Swank diet for MS? Which supplements are beneficial? Dr. Wahls details an ongoing clinical trial meant to validate her protocol. How can one join the large community of Wahls Protocol adherents? Click HERE for part 2.

Fighting Alzheimer’s, Part 1
March 30, 2017
Amy Berger, author of "The Alzheimer's Antidote," challenges the current paradigm whereby we search for blockbuster drugs to inhibit amyloid plaque in the brain. To date, promising "magic bullet" cures have been ineffective at reversing dementia. Instead she proposes a comprehensive metabolic and lifestyle approach, which has been validated in early clinical trials. What does insulin have to with the decline of brain function? How can low-carb and ketogenic diets help? Why might a low cholesterol diet be harmful for the brain? What role for medium chain triglycerides? What supplements can slow progression? Why is exercise beneficial for staving off cognitive decline? What role does chronic stress play? Why might certain drugs (statins, acid blockers, etc.) accelerate mental decline? What tests predict risk for dementia? Is there a gluten connection? Does high homocysteine forecast memory problems? Click HERE for part 2.

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.
