ENCORE: Integrative Medicine Under the Microscope, Part 1
January 9, 2020
Why is it that so many patients are looking for alternative and complementary medicines and treatments? Should more studies be conducted on alternative or complementary treatments, or is it a waste of money and time? Does integrative medicine belong in academic medical centers—should it be taught at all? John Weeks, with over 32 years of experience in advocacy for natural medicine, confronts the critics of the new trend to fund research in medical schools and universities; what’s the future of integrative medicine in the U.S.? Are initiatives underway to make it more available and affordable? How has the current opiate epidemic created an opportunity for advances in non-drug treatment of pain syndromes? Could integrative medicine provide the key to solving America’s health care crisis? Click HERE for part 2.

Combating America’s Diet-Related Disease Epidemics, Part 1
January 7, 2020
Learn all about the newly-launched American Nutrition Association’s (www.theANA.org) efforts to revolutionize science-based nutrition to combat America’s diet-related disease epidemics. ANA’s co-founder Corinne Bush, MS, CNS is on a mission to change our health care paradigm by harnessing Personalized Nutrition. The ANA offers training and certification to licensed health professionals via the CNS (Certified Nutrition Specialist) credential. Underlying Personalized Nutrition is the notion that there’s no one-size-fits-all approach to food and supplement prescribing. New advances enable skilled practitioners to precisely target recommendations. The ANA offers conferences and learning modules that are intended to address critical knowledge gaps that limit health practitioners from leveraging the full curative potential of nutrition. Proper nutrition and supplementation have the potential to save our floundering healthcare system from the burdens of preventable disease. Click HERE for part 2.

ENCORE: Natural Immune Support, Part 1
January 2, 2020
AHCC—Active Hexose Correlated Compound. It is one of the world’s most researched nutraceuticals. Dr. Kristine Blanche discusses the ways AHCC boosts immune function, in conditions ranging from viruses to cancer, and age-related immune decline. Studies show AHCC reduces the frequency and severity of herpes, HPV, and shingles; it enhances vaccine response in older patients; it reduces chemo and radiation side effects without diminishing the efficacy of conventional cancer treatments; and it offsets the deleterious effects of stress on immune competence. Is AHCC inadvisable for patients with autoimmunity? What’s the evidence for its anti-inflammatory effects? Can it be used with other medications? How does it differ from other mushroom-derived products and herbs like Astragalus and Echinacea? How much should you take? Click HERE for part 2.
