Childhood Psychiatric and Behavioral Disorders, Part 1
August 18, 2021
Dr. Kenneth Bock joins Intelligent Medicine to discuss his latest book, "Brain Inflamed: Uncovering the hidden causes of anxiety, depression and other mood disorders in adolescents and teens." There’s an unprecedented pandemic of childhood psychiatric and behavioral disorders: attention-deficit/hyperactivity, autism, depression, anxiety and panic attacks, obsessive-compulsive disorder, bipolar disease, and Tourette’s. For decades, Dr. Bock has been delving into root causes of these conditions, for which medications are merely a bandaid. He discusses the roles of allergies, the microbiome, nutrient deficiencies, infections like Lyme and strep, and toxins. Chronic brain inflammation may be at the root of many behavioral changes. Dr. Bock has developed innovative protocols for quenching inflammation using a combination of natural and pharmaceutical interventions. He acknowledges that the teen years are turbulent and kids are subject to many stresses these days, but natural interventions can smooth the transition to adulthood. Dr. Bock is especially fond of what he terms the “Holy Trinity”: vitamin D, fish oil, and probiotics. But he often has recourse to methylated B vitamins, glutathione precursors, curcumin, and CBD. Much detective work is required to unravel complex cases, but remarkable recoveries can be achieved. Click HERE for part 2.

Skin Dysbiosis: How To Protect Your Skin Microbiome, Part 1
July 27, 2021
The skin is the body’s largest organ. Every inch of it is covered with bacteria—sometimes up to a billion per square centimeter. That’s the skin microbiome. But those microbes on the skin surface can also influence the behavior of cells below the epidermis and, in turn, those cells communicate with our tissues, and even our brains. Kat James, award-winning author of “The Truth About Beauty” and renowned nutrition and inside-out transformation expert, has new scientific insights connecting our skin to our inner ecology, and how we can help or hinder that connection in some very unexpected and simple ways.
