ENCORE: How to Heal the Complex Patient, Part 1
September 6, 2022
Many people suffer from a bewildering array of symptoms including fatigue, bodily aches and pains, depression and anxiety, sudden weight gain or loss, brain fog, and multiple food and chemical reactions. These are often branded “psychosomatic”. Dr. Neil Nathan presents a detailed roadmap to recovery in his book “Toxic: Heal Your Body from Mold Toxicity, Lyme Disease, Multiple Chemical Sensitivities, and Chronic Environmental Illness.” What is the Cell Danger Response (CDR) and how does it explain why patients get “stuck” in chronic illness? Why is mold toxicity such a pervasive trigger of a myriad of health problems? How can mold-exposed patients be detoxed? What role for tick-borne infections like Lyme and Bartonella in triggering chronic illness? What is Mast Cell Activation Syndrome (MCAS), and how can its proper identification facilitate relief from baffling symptoms? Why is it sometimes important to “reboot” a dysregulated autonomic nervous system in chronically ill patients? What supplements and medications aid recovery? Why is it important to go slow with treatments? Dr. Nathan shares resources for clinicians and patients. Click HERE for part 2.

How Big Pharma Corrupts American Healthcare, Part 1
September 1, 2022
According to today’s guest, Dr. John Abramson, Americans are getting less bang for their buck when it comes to ever more pricey pharmaceutical drugs. Despite enormous expenditures—17.7% of our GDP—Americans are less healthy and life expectancy lags behind other developed nations. Dr. Abramson, formerly a family practice physician, turned his attention to critiquing the pharmaceutical industry when he realized over-the-top marketing of drugs was at odds with his patients’ interests. He wrote Overdosing America, and became an expert witness in a landmark class action lawsuit over the now-withdrawn drug Bextra. His new book, "Sickening: How Big Pharma Broke American Health Care—And How We Can Repair It," exposes the sleight-of-hand involved in studies that gain approval for new drugs, and how the profit motive distorts optimal drug and device development. Dr. Abramson cites the example of statins as drugs that, while helpful for some, have been vastly overhyped and overprescribed on scant evidence. He takes aim at physician education—both in medical school and post-graduate—as indoctrinating doctors to prescribe drugs with questionable efficacy and undisclosed harms. Dr. Abramson offers an insider’s critique of the medical provisions of the recently passed Inflation Reduction Act—which in fact does little to cap Americans’ skyrocketing outlays for prescription drugs.

ENCORE: The Pervasive Harmful Effects of Sugar, Part 1
August 30, 2022
Dr. Michael Goran, professor of pediatrics at the USC Keck School of Medicine, has devoted his academic career to the study of childhood obesity and diabetes. In “Sugarproof: The Hidden Dangers of Sugar that are Putting Your Child's Health at Risk and What You Can Do,” he and his co-author, nutritionist Dr. Emily Ventura, explore the pervasive harmful effects of sugar, and detail a practical program for effecting change. Excess dietary sugar contributes not just to obesity, but also increased risk for a lifetime of degenerative diseases, as well as behavioral problems. And now sugar is added to 70% of processed foods, often deceptively labeled as “natural”, or concealed under a variety of innocent-sounding rubrics. High fructose corn syrup has especially harmful properties. Non-caloric sugar substitutes also come into the cross-hairs as stoking the appetite and having indeterminate metabolic effects. Is regulation of the food industry the answer? Labeling laws? Restrictions on advertising to children? Sugar and soft drink taxes? Outright bans like now underway in Mexico? Tobacco-style litigation vs. the sugar industry? Dr. Goran argues for a more consumer-oriented approach, with self-regulation the goal for kids. Click HERE for part 2.
