A reliable substitute for mammography? Part 1
April 23, 2019
Thermography, a controversial imaging technique, is the subject of today’s interview with Dr. Kristine Blanche, owner and operator the Integrative Healing Center of Long Island and New York City. What is thermography? In view of the limitations of mammograms, and women’s concerns about radiation exposure, is breast thermography an adequate and reliable substitute for mammography? What information does it render about the health and functionality of, not just the breasts, but other body parts? How does thermography offer women a breast health “report card”? If abnormalities are found, but no cancer is detected with standard imaging techniques, are there natural ways women can optimize their breast health to prevent cancer? What roles for diet, exercise, supplements, stress reduction? What are xenoestrogens, and how can women minimize their exposure? 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.

The Deplorable State of Nutrition Science, Part 1
April 2, 2019
Dr. Richard Feinman is one of the deans of the low-carb movement. He is Professor of Cell Biology at SUNY Downstate Medical Center where he teaches medical students, and is author of "Nutrition in Crisis: Flawed Studies, Misleading Advice, and the Real Science of Human Metabolism." He takes aim at the deplorable state of nutrition science. Especially problematic are epidemiological studies which draw unwarranted inferences about what people should eat. Feinman challenges the “Diet-Heart Hypothesis” which he says has never been substantiated. He is author of an authoritative review supporting carbohydrate restriction as a means of controlling diabetes. His recent work is on ketogenic diets for cancer. Feinman describes the intense resistance his iconoclastic views have met within the nutrition establishment, but believes that low-carb dieting is engendering a paradigm switch.
