ENCORE: Is fish oil the remedy for traumatic brain injury (TBI)? Part 1
September 6, 2018
Dr. Michael Lewis, Retired U.S. Army Colonel, West Point Graduate, and former military physician, is the founder of the Brain Health Education Research Institute. He says that hundreds of thousands of Americans suffer head injuries annually. Some suffer long-term consequences: dizziness, disorientation, headaches, loss of concentration and memory, mood changes, insomnia and fatigue. Even hormones can be thrown out of whack. The medical profession has little to offer these patients. How do you know whether you’ve suffered a concussion? How does high-dose fish oil quell inflammation? What’s the specific protocol for head injuries? Is there any danger of brain hemorrhage with such high doses? Can Dr. Lewis' Omega 3 head injury protocol be employed for patients in deep comas? Should athletes and military personnel at risk for head injuries take fish oil preventively? What’s been the response of the VA Hospital system to Dr. Lewis’ potentially cost-saving proposals? What other supplements might play a role in combatting the effects of TBI? (Listeners can request a free sample of Nordic Naturals Fish Oil which meets Dr. Lewis’ exacting specifications, by visiting Nordic Naturals' web site and clicking on the free sample box in the lower right corner.)

ENCORE: Macular Degeneration, Part 1
September 4, 2018
Macular degeneration (AMD) is a major cause of blindness for American seniors. AMD is also one of the few medical conditions where nutritional therapy remains the mainstay of treatment, in the absence of drug “fixes.” Dr. Thomas Guilliams explains why antioxidants, Omega 3 fatty acids, and carotenoids are logical choices for preventing or slowing the progression of AMD; Is there evidence that healthy diets confer protection against AMD? What about exercise? What’s the difference between “wet” and “dry” AMD? Why are free radicals such a problem for the eye? What role does DHA play in eye health? How do lutein and zeaxanthin act like “internal sunglasses” in the eyes? What are main dietary sources of lutein and zeaxanthin? What are some of the controversies in eye research? What nutrients at what doses should the ideal eye supplement contain? Are additional benefits to be had from the addition of taurine, l-carnitine, n-acetylcysteine (NAC), quercetin, or sulforaphane?
