Childhood Psychiatric and Behavioral Disorders, Part 1
August 18, 2021
Dr. Kenneth Bock joins Intelligent Medicine to discuss his latest book, "Brain Inflamed: Uncovering the hidden causes of anxiety, depression and other mood disorders in adolescents and teens." There’s an unprecedented pandemic of childhood psychiatric and behavioral disorders: attention-deficit/hyperactivity, autism, depression, anxiety and panic attacks, obsessive-compulsive disorder, bipolar disease, and Tourette’s. For decades, Dr. Bock has been delving into root causes of these conditions, for which medications are merely a bandaid. He discusses the roles of allergies, the microbiome, nutrient deficiencies, infections like Lyme and strep, and toxins. Chronic brain inflammation may be at the root of many behavioral changes. Dr. Bock has developed innovative protocols for quenching inflammation using a combination of natural and pharmaceutical interventions. He acknowledges that the teen years are turbulent and kids are subject to many stresses these days, but natural interventions can smooth the transition to adulthood. Dr. Bock is especially fond of what he terms the “Holy Trinity”: vitamin D, fish oil, and probiotics. But he often has recourse to methylated B vitamins, glutathione precursors, curcumin, and CBD. Much detective work is required to unravel complex cases, but remarkable recoveries can be achieved. Click HERE for part 2.

ENCORE: The Perils of Processed Foods and Conventional Produce, Part 1
August 17, 2021
Former FDA official Dr. Renee DuFault, author of "Unsafe at Any Meal: What the FDA Does Not Want You to Know About the Foods You Eat," highlights the perils of processed foods and conventional produce—they act as “Trojan Horses” for a slew of dangerous compounds including mercury and other heavy metals, dangerous herbicides like glyphosate, and pesticides like malathion and chlorpyrifos. In particular, high fructose corn syrup is laden with mercury; its consumption has soared over eight thousand percent since its introduction into the U.S. food supply in the 1970s. In addition to its caloric impact, the mercury it delivers can act as a metabolic poison contributing to risk of obesity and diabetes. In fact, studies show that processed foods promote overweight and blood sugar dysregulation beyond their energy contribution. Avoiding processed foods and eating locally-sourced foods free of contamination has been conclusively shown to help consumers shed pounds. Even popular gluten-free, “natural” products can be unsuspected sources of environmental toxins. Dr. Dufault offers practical tips on how to avoid the perils of the modern food supply.

ICYMI: Glyphosate: Putting Our Soils, Waterways, Wildlife and Ourselves At Risk, Part 1
July 1, 2021
IN CASE YOU MISSED IT. Dr. Stephanie Seneff brings her insights on precision molecular medicine to bear in this detailed indictment of Glyphosate, aka Roundup: "Toxic Legacy: How the Weedkiller Glyphosate Is Destroying Our Health and the Environment." Glyphosate is spawning massive class-action lawsuits by exposed individuals who contracted non-Hodgkins lymphoma, but MIT researcher Stephanie Seneff Ph.D. highlights pervasive additional risks—to our soils, our waterways, to wildlife, and to humans. Yet it’s still authorized for use in the US, despite bans in many countries and localities. She’s been hailed as the Rachel Carson (author of Silent Spring) of our era. Avoiding use on our lawns and gardens and sourcing non-GMO foods reduces exposure, but it’s now pervasive in the environment. Dr. Seneff points out how it attacks multiple organ systems, affecting energy production, the brain, the liver, and the digestive tract, even compromising fertility. Despite industry claims to the contrary, it doesn’t break down quickly, and can persist in the environment and in our bodies. Click HERE for part 2.
