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.

ENCORE: Are angels real? Do miracles happen? Part 1
October 20, 2020
Dr. Leo Galland, renowned clinician, educator, and best-selling author of "The Allergy Solution" (the basis for a hit PBS series) turns his attention to spiritual exploration in his new book, "Already Here: A Doctor Discovers the Truth About Heaven." The book recounts the death of his learning-disabled son, Chris, who returned as a spirit guide after a series of miraculous experiences awakened Dr. Galland to his consciousness-expanding messages. How does Already Here square with Dr. Galland’s rigorous scientific orientation? Is there an implicit lesson for parents, family members, and educators of children with challenging behaviors? For grievers? Do you have to subscribe to traditional religious beliefs to appreciate Already Here? How has Dr. Galland’s experience shaped his views of death? Has it impacted his interaction with patients? Did it undermine his confidence in the scientific method? Are there practical ways to apply Dr. Galland’s insights in our day-to-day lives?

SPECIAL EPISODE: Covid-19 Urgent Call to Action, Part 1
March 22, 2020
Covid-19 cases are increasing rapidly in the U.S. and today’s guest, Dr. Leo Galland, issues an urgent call-to-action to not underestimate its destructive potential. Dr. Galland is a pioneer of integrative medicine and author of several books including Super-Immunity for Kids and The Allergy Solution. He brings his extensive experience and knowledge of complementary modalities to bear on the Coronavirus crisis. He warns that the virus has the potential to affect the majority of Americans by mid-May. While many will experience mild to moderate symptoms, the death toll may rise to the millions. He explains that it’s not enough to assume that most of the immune-supportive supplements that have helped us weather ordinary colds and flus will be applicable to the Coronavirus; his careful study of its characteristics suggests a tailored approach. What about vitamin D, zinc and selenium? Why probiotics might confer protection; oregano, quercetin, resveratrol, elderberry, NAC, ginseng, Andrographis, mushroom extracts, and traditional Chinese herbs? High-dose IV vitamin C? Can too much immune stimulation result in dread “cytokine storm”? What about the melatonin connection? Are certain antihypertensive drugs beneficial—or harmful? Is it true you should avoid ibuprofen? Will the combo of hydroxychloroquine plus azithromycin yield the breakthrough we’ve been looking for? Click HERE for part 2.

ENCORE: Dr. Leo Galland’s “The Allergy Solution,” Part 1
November 25, 2016
Dr. Leo Galland’s, "The Allergy Solution: Unlock the Surprising, Hidden Truth About Why You Are Sick and How to Get Well.” The book seeks to empower patients to discover the hidden causes of their allergic symptoms via a detailed self-questionnaire, and to remediate them. Dr. Galland goes beyond sneezing, wheezing, and itching to characterize a wide variety of maladies and afflictions as allergic in origin. Why are allergies so much more pervasive in modern times? Allergies can be divided into indoor, outdoor and internal; Outdoor allergies comprise pollens, molds, animal dander and industrial pollutants; indoor allergies are on the rise due to our toxic home and work environments; and internal allergies arise when we turn our disrupted GI tracts into portable allergy factories. Poor diet, over-dependency on medications, and toxic chemicals create a perfect storm for allergies. Dr. Galland explains the rationale for a 3-day “Power Wash” which he administers to new patients to unmask dietary allergic triggers and revive their detoxification pathways. What role do “leaky gut” and “dysbiosis” play in promoting allergies? Why are probiotics alone not enough to restore GI balance for allergy sufferers? Dr. Galland discusses the 5 major food culprits: wheat, corn, soy, dairy and yeast; What role do dietary bioflavonoids from fruits, vegetables and spices play as potent allergy quenchers? How do allergies lead to a vicious cycle of weight gain and inflammation? Can brain allergies be responsible for depression, ADHD, brain-fog, even psychosis? Fascinating case studies from Dr. Galland’s practice illustrate the power of proper allergy sleuthing. Click HERE for part 2.

Could they be suffering the deleterious effects of all the antibiotics they received? Are tests accurate? Is there a role for natural therapies in the treatment of Lyme Disease: Nutrients for mitochondrial support or gut repair? Hyperthermia? Oxidative therapies like ozone, hydrogen peroxide, hyperbaric oxygen, or IV vitamin C? Herbs that kill or inhibit Lyme or other pathogens?
