Everything you ever wanted to know about Low-Dose Naltrexone, Part 1
October 28, 2021
Dr. Pamela Smith joins us to provide an update on LDN, a versatile therapy that delivers a low dose of a commonly prescribed lifesaving medication used to reverse narcotics overdoses. Dr. Smith describes how LDN reboots the immune system and tamps down inflammation, accounting for its ubiquitous applications. A myriad of conditions respond to LDN: autoimmune disorders like inflammatory bowel disease and ulcerative colitis; painful conditions like fibromyalgia, many cancers, skin disorders, and infertility, even with applications for stubborn weight gain. The latest research focuses on the role LDN might play to hasten resolution of Long Covid. Dr. Smith’s most recent book, "Max Your Immunity: How to Maximize Your Immune System When You Need It Most" is a timely look at what works to fortify resilience in the face of the pandemic, with an entire chapter devoted to LDN. More information on LDN can be found at LDN Research Trust. Click HERE for part 2.

ENCORE: A Revolution In Our Understanding of Vitamin D, Part 1
October 12, 2021
The latest installment in our free-ranging discussions about vitamin D with Dr. John Cannell, founder and CEO of the Vitamin D Research Council. The “elephant in the room”: skeptics have lately pushed back on the efficacy of vitamin D and impugned the motives of top vitamin D researcher Michael Holick MD.

What are the latest findings linking low D levels to breast cancer risk? Is oral vitamin D supplementation equivalent to getting it the natural way—via the sun? What are optimal levels of D? Why is it that individuals require such different levels of supplementation? What about D in pregnancy? For athletic performance? For fending off colds and flus? For diabetes? For autism? Are certain formulations of D superior to others? Click HERE for part 2.
