A Revolution in the Diagnosis and Treatment of GI Disorders, Part 1
April 4, 2019
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.

Fending Off Neurodegenerative Diseases, Part 1
February 14, 2019
Board-certified neurologist, Dr. Phillipe Douyon, creator of the BrainFit™️ app, joins us to talk about ways to support brain health and fend off neurodegenerative disease. We needn’t be resigned to progressive loss of brain function with aging, because new findings about neuroplasticity reveal that the brain can remodel and rejuvenate itself, actually regenerating brain cells and neural circuits. Dr. Douyon reveals why, with the limited success of drugs for conditions like Parkinson’s and ALS, we need to invoke a comprehensive lifestyle program to address brain health. This comprises sleep, stress reduction, exercise, social connection, avoidance of toxins, and diet. Even poor dental hygiene may influence brain health. Among the supplements that are helpful are fish oil, curcumin, B vitamins and antioxidants like alpha lipoic acid. Dr. Douyon, who specializes in the treatment of epilepsy reveals the role of ketogenic diets in patients who don’t respond to conventional treatment? Are refined carbs and gluten really potentially harmful to the brain? What role for the microbiome in brain health? Which drugs are memory robbers? Can statins have harmful effects on the brain?
