ENCORE: A Breakthrough for Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Part 1
December 28, 2021
A new breakthrough botanical treatment for irritable bowel syndrome. Board-certified gastroenterologist Dr. Kenneth Brown is developer of Atrantil, a natural treatment for IBS. He explains how small intestine bacterial overgrowth (SIBO) contributes to gas, bloating, cramps, urgency and constipation. Conventional treatment of SIBO involves use of the antibiotic Xifaxin, which is expensive and doesn’t usually deliver lasting relief. Years of research led Dr. Brown to discovery of an herbal combo which offers a more economical, thorough solution. Clinical testing has shown Atrantil to be effective. What ingredients make Atrantil unique among GI supplements? How should Atrantil be taken? Can it result in “die-off” symptoms? How is SIBO diagnosed? What role for probiotics? For diet? For agents that promote GI motility? Does SIBO cause mood symptoms like anxiety, depression, or “brain fog”? Click HERE for part 2.

Everything you ever wanted to know about Low-Dose Naltrexone, Part 1
October 28, 2021
Dr. Pamela Smith joins us to provide an update on LDN, a versatile therapy that delivers a low dose of a commonly prescribed lifesaving medication used to reverse narcotics overdoses. Dr. Smith describes how LDN reboots the immune system and tamps down inflammation, accounting for its ubiquitous applications. A myriad of conditions respond to LDN: autoimmune disorders like inflammatory bowel disease and ulcerative colitis; painful conditions like fibromyalgia, many cancers, skin disorders, and infertility, even with applications for stubborn weight gain. The latest research focuses on the role LDN might play to hasten resolution of Long Covid. Dr. Smith’s most recent book, "Max Your Immunity: How to Maximize Your Immune System When You Need It Most" is a timely look at what works to fortify resilience in the face of the pandemic, with an entire chapter devoted to LDN. More information on LDN can be found at LDN Research Trust. Click HERE for part 2.

ENCORE: Curing Reflux Through Food, Part 1
October 19, 2021
Dr. Jamie Koufman is a pioneering ear, nose & throat specialist who coined the terms “silent reflux” and “layngopharyngeal reflux” (LPR). She specializes in diagnosing and treating voice disorders and reflux. She is the author of “Dropping Acid: The Reflux Diet Cookbook and Cure.” She contends that medicine’s obsession with acid-blocking drugs for throat complaints is misguided: “The gastroenterologists are like dinosaurs, but unlike dinosaurs, they deserve to die out.” She points out the many drawbacks of proton pump inhibitors (PPIs): They mostly don’t work, and they bring with them a host of side effects. Paradoxically, they may actually increase the risk of esophageal cancer, which they are intended to protect against. Dr. Koufman has demonstrated that complaints like hoarseness, chronic cough, throat-clearing, and bothersome throat sensations can be cured with simple lifestyle and diet changes. Asthma, too, is frequently misdiagnosed and responds to low-acid regimens when inhaled asthma drugs fail. She is an advocate of “alkaline water”, and has authored a research paper demonstrating its efficacy for reflux. Dr. Koufman is an outspoken critic of medicine’s trend toward specialization, which she calls out as profit-driven. Instead she says we need more incentives for primary care doctors to issue simple, lifestyle-oriented advice to patients, and shield them from excess procedures and medications. Her new book is entitled “Acid Reflux in Children: How Healthy Eating Can Fix Your Child's Asthma, Allergies, Obesity, Nasal Congestion, Cough & Croup.” Click HERE for part 2.
