Fending Off Neurodegenerative Diseases, Part 1
February 14, 2019
Board-certified neurologist, Dr. Phillipe Douyon, creator of the BrainFit™️ app, joins us to talk about ways to support brain health and fend off neurodegenerative disease. We needn’t be resigned to progressive loss of brain function with aging, because new findings about neuroplasticity reveal that the brain can remodel and rejuvenate itself, actually regenerating brain cells and neural circuits. Dr. Douyon reveals why, with the limited success of drugs for conditions like Parkinson’s and ALS, we need to invoke a comprehensive lifestyle program to address brain health. This comprises sleep, stress reduction, exercise, social connection, avoidance of toxins, and diet. Even poor dental hygiene may influence brain health. Among the supplements that are helpful are fish oil, curcumin, B vitamins and antioxidants like alpha lipoic acid. Dr. Douyon, who specializes in the treatment of epilepsy reveals the role of ketogenic diets in patients who don’t respond to conventional treatment? Are refined carbs and gluten really potentially harmful to the brain? What role for the microbiome in brain health? Which drugs are memory robbers? Can statins have harmful effects on the brain?

Natural Treatment for Joint Pain, Part 1
February 12, 2019
Hyaluronic acid (HA) is responsible for cushioning joints, maintaining youthful appearance of skin and hair, and many other essential body processes. As you age, it becomes depleted. Bill Sardi, noted health journalist, describes the science behind HA. It’s used extensively as an injectable for joints, but a new oral form of HA, HA-7, has proven to be bioavailable. It’s an extremely popular supplement in Japan, but less well known in the U.S. Bill describes his experience with HA, and the remarkable results it has attained. Should HA be taken with other companion nutrients? How does it compare with traditional joint supplements like glucosamine and chondroitin? Click HERE for part 2.
