Do You Have a Healthy Microbiome? Part 1
May 8, 2018
Visionary entrepreneur Naveen Jain is the founder of Viome, dedicated to research on how the microbiome impacts our health. Why is it that some people thrive on the very same diet that undermines the wellness of others? Some do well on whole grains, others on Paleo, still others have the seeming ability to metabolize a wide variety of foods. The answer may lie in our microbiome, comprising trillions of organisms harbored in our GI tracts. They are responsible for biotransformation of foods into vital nutrients—or, alternatively, into dangerous toxins, endocrine disruptors, or pro-inflammatory compounds. And there’s tremendous variation from person to person. Viome is harnessing the tremendous potential of artificial intelligence and machine learning to interpret complex findings from stool tests to yield actionable, specific dietary recommendations—a pioneering technology. What is a diversity score? How does Viome measure a person’s potential for inflammation? How can you learn whether you have a healthy microbiome? What’s on the launch pad for Viome? Will this technology be the future of nutritional medicine? Click HERE for part 2.

The Epidemic of Diabetes, Part 1
May 3, 2018
Dr. David Perlmutter is America’s foremost Integrative neurologist and pioneering author of "Grain Brain." Five years after its publication, with over a million copies sold worldwide in twenty languages, he reflects on its success and the vindication of its central tenets: That America’s low-fat high/carb mania has promoted an epidemic of diabetes, just when optimal blood sugar is gaining recognition as fundamental to brain health; that gluten is demonstrably harmful via its effects on gut permeability; and that fat and cholesterol phobia has deprived our brains of essential nutrients. He emphasizes the centrality of exercise to prevention and reversal of dementia. The latest research underlies the concept of neuroplasticity—that the adult brain has the capacity to repair and regenerate. What newly-discovered factor helps to literally regrow brain cells? Does genetics dictate our neurological fate? Or can lifestyle overcome our heredity? What roles for sleep? Stress reduction? Coffee? Alcohol? Bio-identical hormone replacement? The microbiome? Cannabinoids? Ketogenic diet? What drugs take a toll on brain function? Dr. Perlmutter will soon be featured nationwide in a PBS Special entitled “Dr. Perlmutter’s Whole Life Plan”.
