Dr. Leo Galland looks back on his predictions for Covid-19 made one year ago here on Intelligent Medicine, Part 1
April 1, 2021
Dr. Leo Galland looks back on his predictions for Covid-19 made one year ago here on Intelligent Medicine at the outset of the pandemic. Much of what he stated then has proven prescient, although he admits surprise at the effectiveness and relative safety of the vaccines. As predicted, the metabolic syndrome has proven to be the most salient risk factor for bad Covid-19 outcomes. Dr. Galland has done extensive research on the role of the microbiome in mediating disease severity; imbalances in intestinal microflora put patients at risk. It’s also possible that long-term perturbations in gut integrity may account for some of the symptoms of Covid-19 “long-haulers”. Dr. Galland details strategies for restoring gut health. He also weighs in on the role that custom-compounded nasal sprays may play in suppressing the virus. Should special supplements be taken to augment vaccine efficacy? What roles for resveratrol, curcumin, elderberry? Find out more by viewing his comprehensive Coronavirus Guidebook. Click HERE for part 2.

The Genetics of COVID-19, Part 1
April 30, 2020
There are many factors that determine who’s more prone to hospitalization or death from coronavirus infection. But among them—and now subject to intense research—are individual genetic predispositions. Certain genes can make you more susceptible to an inflammatory cascade—cytokine storm—that presages a bad outcome in COVID-19. Integrative physician Dr. Sharon Hausman-Cohen, MD, is co-founder of IntellxxDNA, a service that helps health professionals interpret their patients’ genetic profiles. She sheds light on how variations in gene expression can influence pathways integral to viral infection. These analyses, based on saliva samples, can yield critical insights about deployment of various nutraceutical treatments—including elderberry, andrographis, astragalus, vitamins A, C, and D, zinc, fish oil and specific pro-resolving mediators (SPMs), quercetin, melatonin, EGCG, and curcumin.

Curcumin and Magnesium for Brain Health, Part 1
July 30, 2019
Protocol for Life Balance Senior Nutrition Education Manager Neil Levin weighs in on nutritional strategies for preventing cognitive decline. While BigPharma flounders in its multi-billion-dollar efforts to find a “magic bullet” drug against Alzheimer’s Disease, an estimated 28 million Baby Boomers are destined to suffer from the debilitating condition by mid-century. A new study suggests that simple lifestyle changes can mitigate risk even in those with Alzheimer’s genes. Levin discusses the science substantiating the brain benefits of curcumin and magnesium. But bio-availability is a problem; most forms of curcumin and magnesium don’t cross the blood-brain barrier. Levin highlights research on Curcumin SPLC (Cogumin) and magnesium threonate (Protosorb Magnesium). Other ancillary nutrients like phosphatidylcholine, phosphatidylserine, bacopa, huperzine, CoQ10, fish oil and tocotrienols also deserve consideration in a brain-protective regimen.
