ENCORE: Sick Building Syndrome, Part 1
April 11, 2019
Alan Bell was a successful prosecuting attorney when he suddenly developed a mystery illness. After consulting numerous specialists, he finally met one who informed him that he had likely been poisoned. His medical odyssey is described in the new book "Poisoned." Bell ultimately discovered that he had developed Sick Building Syndrome after relocation to a new office. The only answer was a lonely sojourn in a chemical-free dwelling in the middle of the Arizona desert. How did Bell move toward recovery? How has his experience led to his environmental activism? Bell details the top ten chemicals to avoid; the 20 lifestyle tips that help prevent and reverse environmental illness. He estimates that millions of Americans, the vast majority unaware, are suffering the consequences of environmental toxicity. The chemical lobby opposes reform and American medicine silently colludes. What can be done to bring about change? Click HERE for part 2.

Ozone Therapy, Part 1
April 9, 2019
Ozone therapy is considered one of the more exotic modalities of Integrative Medicine, but today’s guest, Dr. Isadora Guggenheim (www.secondnaturecare.com) brings scientific rigor to its application to a variety of conditions. Guggenheim is a naturopathic physician (ND), as well as an RN and nutritionist. What’s the history of ozone therapy? How does it work? How can we reconcile its healing properties with concerns about ozone as a cause of respiratory injury? Doesn’t it generate free radicals when introduced into the body? Guggenheim explains the seeming paradox by marshaling evidence that medical ozone revs the body’s antioxidant defenses; ozone is a potent disinfectant, combatting viruses, bacteria and fungi alike. It also selectively targets cancer cells while sparing healthy cells. Athletes use ozone to boost performance; many patients attest to ozone’s energizing and mood-enhancing effects. What are the various ways ozone can be administered? What conditions respond to ozone? Does research support its safety and effectiveness? On a separate note, Guggenheim describes laser vaginal rejuvenation—The Mona Lisa Touch procedure—as an alternative to hormones for vaginal dryness and painful intercourse. Click HERE for part 2.

A Revolution in the Diagnosis and Treatment of GI Disorders, Part 1
April 4, 2019
SIBO—small intestine bacterial overgrowth—is a concept that has revolutionized our diagnosis and treatment of common GI disorders, especially IBS (irritable bowel syndrome). Gary Stapleton, founder and director of Aerodiagnostic Labs, is a leading authority on the performance and interpretation of testing for SIBO. What is SIBO? Who might suspect they have it? SIBO manifestations go way beyond just gastrointestinal symptoms like diarrhea, cramps, bloating and constipation; SIBO often is an underlying cause of autoimmune disorders and even brain fog, depression, anxiety and fatigue. Why test? What’s the principal behind breath testing? How does detection of various gases guide therapeutic decisions and increase treatment success? Are there alternatives to drugs for treatment of SIBO? What can go wrong with breath testing? Improper patient prepping, imprecise collection, poorly calibrated testing machinery, and inexperienced interpretation can confuse the diagnosis. Stapleton outlines the extraordinary steps Aerodiagnostics takes to assure quality control. Breath testing can also be used to pinpoint diagnoses of lactose, fructose or sucrose intolerance.
