ENCORE: How to Heal the Complex Patient, Part 1
January 6, 2021
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.
