How to Heal the Complex Patient, Part 1
January 10, 2019
Many people suffer from a bewildering array of symptoms including fatigue, bodily aches and pains, depression and anxiety, sudden weight gain or loss, brain fog, and multiple food and chemical reactions. These are often branded “psychosomatic”. Dr. Neil Nathan presents a detailed roadmap to recovery in his book “Toxic: Heal Your Body from Mold Toxicity, Lyme Disease, Multiple Chemical Sensitivities, and Chronic Environmental Illness.” What is the Cell Danger Response (CDR) and how does it explain why patients get “stuck” in chronic illness? Why is mold toxicity such a pervasive trigger of a myriad of health problems? How can mold-exposed patients be detoxed? What role for tick-borne infections like Lyme and Bartonella in triggering chronic illness? What is Mast Cell Activation Syndrome (MCAS), and how can its proper identification facilitate relief from baffling symptoms? Why is it sometimes important to “reboot” a dysregulated autonomic nervous system in chronically ill patients? What supplements and medications aid recovery? Why is it important to go slow with treatments? Dr. Nathan shares resources for clinicians and patients. Click HERE for part 2.

Corporate Malfeasance v. Public Health, Part 1
November 20, 2018
Spotlight on glyphosate and GMOs with Carey Gillam, author of "Whitewash: The Story of a Weed Killer, Cancer, and the Corruption of Science." Gillam is an investigative journalist whose passion for the truth led her to disturbing conclusions about the herbicide glyphosate, widely used on “Round-Up Ready” crops. It’s maker Monsanto—now Bayer—is facing multiple lawsuits by plaintiffs claiming Roundup caused their cancers. Particularly disturbing are cases of rare aggressive variants of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma among agricultural workers. Gillam found herself vilified and delegitimized after calling out the dangers of glyphosate; the agribusiness industry has powerful allies in government, the media, in regulatory agencies and has infiltrated academic circles. How pervasive is glyphosate in our environment, in our food supply, in our bloodstreams, even in breast milk? What potential effects does glyphosate have on the nervous system, on fertility, and on the microbiome? Why might children be more vulnerable? How does it affect soil quality? Is the threatened demise of the Monarch butterfly attributable to glyphosate? How has glyphosate use brought about the unintended consequence of more use of other dangerous herbicides? What can be done to minimize exposure? Click HERE for part 2.
