ENCORE: The Key to Many Diseases as Well as the Aging Process, Part 1
December 10, 2020
Naturopathic physician Dr. Lee Know, author of "Mitochondria and the Future of Medicine: The Key to Understanding Disease, Chronic Illness, Aging, and Life Itself," shares extensive research on the centrality of the mitochondria to many diseases as well as to the aging process. The mitochondria are the energy powerhouses of the cell. How does the origin of mitochondria billions of years ago shed light on why antibiotics disrupt our metabolic machinery? Why do we inherit energy metabolism from our mothers? What causes mitochondrial dysfunction? What role for toxins? Diet? Energy-depleting medications? What’s the “Exercise Paradox” and how does it relate to mitochondrial function? What medical conditions are caused by faulty mitochondria? Why is diabetes not just a sugar disorder, but rather an energetic failure? What does mitochondrial insufficiency do to the brain? How are chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia related to mitochondrial function? What’s the optimal diet for mitochondrial support? What supplements have been demonstrated to revive flagging mitochondria? Do cannabinoids show potential in regulating mitochondria? Click HERE for part 2.

ENCORE: The Epidemic of Diabetes, Part 1
November 3, 2020
Dr. David Perlmutter is America’s foremost Integrative neurologist and pioneering author of "Grain Brain." Five years after its publication, with over a million copies sold worldwide in twenty languages, he reflects on its success and the vindication of its central tenets: That America’s low-fat high/carb mania has promoted an epidemic of diabetes, just when optimal blood sugar is gaining recognition as fundamental to brain health; that gluten is demonstrably harmful via its effects on gut permeability; and that fat and cholesterol phobia has deprived our brains of essential nutrients. He emphasizes the centrality of exercise to prevention and reversal of dementia. The latest research underlies the concept of neuroplasticity—that the adult brain has the capacity to repair and regenerate. What newly-discovered factor helps to literally regrow brain cells? Does genetics dictate our neurological fate? Or can lifestyle overcome our heredity? What roles for sleep? Stress reduction? Coffee? Alcohol? Bio-identical hormone replacement? The microbiome? Cannabinoids? Ketogenic diet? What drugs take a toll on brain function? Dr. Perlmutter will soon be featured nationwide in a PBS Special entitled “Dr. Perlmutter’s Whole Life Plan”.
