ENCORE: Hidden Dangers in “Healthy” Foods, Part 1
January 22, 2020
Dr. Steven Gundry, author of "The Plant Paradox: The Hidden Dangers in 'Healthy' Foods That Cause Disease and Weight Gain," discusses how lectins from plant foods can cause physical and mental symptoms and promote obesity. As a vegetarian, he experienced high cholesterol and blood pressure and couldn’t lose weight despite a rigorous exercise program. His research led him to a new diet paradigm which enabled him to shed 70 pounds and optimize his cardiovascular risk factors. What are lectins, and how do they inflict damage on the body? Could lectins explain the “Wheat Belly” phenomenon? Why “healthy” foods like grains, beans, squash, tomatoes, potatoes, peanuts and cashews, and even chia seeds can cause harm. Why fruits can sometimes trigger disease and weight gain. Does that mean we should severely curtail our intake of plant foods? Which are permissible? Are meats, fish, eggs and poultry free of lectins? Why does the Plant Paradox Diet permit some forms of dairy? How does the supplement “Lectin Shield” mitigate the damage caused by inadvertent consumption of lectins? Click HERE for part 2.

Ozone Therapy, Part 1
April 9, 2019
Ozone therapy is considered one of the more exotic modalities of Integrative Medicine, but today’s guest, Dr. Isadora Guggenheim (www.secondnaturecare.com) brings scientific rigor to its application to a variety of conditions. Guggenheim is a naturopathic physician (ND), as well as an RN and nutritionist. What’s the history of ozone therapy? How does it work? How can we reconcile its healing properties with concerns about ozone as a cause of respiratory injury? Doesn’t it generate free radicals when introduced into the body? Guggenheim explains the seeming paradox by marshaling evidence that medical ozone revs the body’s antioxidant defenses; ozone is a potent disinfectant, combatting viruses, bacteria and fungi alike. It also selectively targets cancer cells while sparing healthy cells. Athletes use ozone to boost performance; many patients attest to ozone’s energizing and mood-enhancing effects. What are the various ways ozone can be administered? What conditions respond to ozone? Does research support its safety and effectiveness? On a separate note, Guggenheim describes laser vaginal rejuvenation—The Mona Lisa Touch procedure—as an alternative to hormones for vaginal dryness and painful intercourse. Click HERE for part 2.

A Revolution in the Diagnosis and Treatment of GI Disorders, Part 1
April 4, 2019
SIBO—small intestine bacterial overgrowth—is a concept that has revolutionized our diagnosis and treatment of common GI disorders, especially IBS (irritable bowel syndrome). Gary Stapleton, founder and director of Aerodiagnostic Labs, is a leading authority on the performance and interpretation of testing for SIBO. What is SIBO? Who might suspect they have it? SIBO manifestations go way beyond just gastrointestinal symptoms like diarrhea, cramps, bloating and constipation; SIBO often is an underlying cause of autoimmune disorders and even brain fog, depression, anxiety and fatigue. Why test? What’s the principal behind breath testing? How does detection of various gases guide therapeutic decisions and increase treatment success? Are there alternatives to drugs for treatment of SIBO? What can go wrong with breath testing? Improper patient prepping, imprecise collection, poorly calibrated testing machinery, and inexperienced interpretation can confuse the diagnosis. Stapleton outlines the extraordinary steps Aerodiagnostics takes to assure quality control. Breath testing can also be used to pinpoint diagnoses of lactose, fructose or sucrose intolerance.
