ENCORE: Ozone Therapy, Part 1
June 30, 2021
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.

ENCORE: A Revolution in the Diagnosis and Treatment of GI Disorders, Part 1
June 29, 2021
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.

Health Freedom and the Right-To-Choose, Part 1
June 17, 2021
Gretchen DuBeau, Executive Director of the Alliance for Natural Health briefs us on some of the challenges facing the natural health movement. Among these are vaccine choice—the ability of individuals to make rational decisions about the Covid vaccines without fear of stigmatization or reprisal. The vaccines have undeniably saved lives and helped restore the US to normalcy, but some categories of individuals, such as those with autoimmune conditions, the very young, and those who’ve had previous Covid infections, may have reason to forego the vaccine. ANH supports their right to choose without discrimination. Gretchen shares other looming restrictions regulators seek against free access to natural products—familiar things like NAC, methylcobalamin, glutathione, bioidentical hormones, and homeopathic formulas—and how ANH is fighting back on behalf of consumers. Especially troubling are big-tech efforts to censor social media communications about the benefits of natural therapies. ANH is working on legislation to permit truthful claims about supplements. Wherever your right-to-choose is being threatened, ANH is there to defend your access to health modalities that work for you. Go to ANH-USA.org for action alerts! Click HERE for part 2.
