Practical Solutions to a Condition that Plagues Millions of Women: Urinary Incontinence, Part 1
March 9, 2021
Female Incontinence: It’s time it came out of the shadows, given that nearly 1/2 of women will suffer from it to some extent during their lifetimes. It can cause depression, isolation, and shame, and prompt women to limit essential hydration. Urogynecologist Dr. Jill Rabin, co-author of "Mind Over Bladder: A Step-By-Step Guide to Achieving Continence" argues that women should not be resigned to incontinence—it can be overcome in a majority of cases. Starting with simple, practical lifestyle interventions, graduating to specialized behavior modification and pelvic floor strengthening techniques, and using medications and surgery only where necessary, a variety of solutions are available. New minimally invasive corrective surgeries obviate the need for lengthy hospitalization and recovery. An innovative new technique, Percutaneous Tibial Nerve Stimulation (PTNS) borrows from acupuncture to deliver painless electrical stimulation to re-establish urinary control. Click HERE for part 2.

ENCORE: Making Sense of Mental Illness, Part 1
March 4, 2021
In this exciting podcast, Dr. Randolph Nesse, a pioneer in evolutionary psychiatry, discusses his new book "Good Reasons for Bad Feelings." Nature doesn’t care whether we feel bad—our emotions are shaped by natural selection to maximize the survival of the species. But there’s a mismatch between our ancient emotional wiring and the circumstances of modern life. What’s the purpose of emotions? Is anxiety natural? What’s the evolutionary benefit of depression? Why do schizophrenia, autism and bipolar disorder persist when they’re so harmful to sufferers? Why is addiction so prevalent? Are we really in the throes of a modern epidemic of childhood mental disorders? Are we over-diagnosing and treating mental conditions that are a natural consequence of our wiring? What’s the take-home message of evolutionary psychiatry for patients and clinicians? Click HERE for part 2.

Oral and Respiratory Hygiene for the Prevention of Viral Infections, Part 1
March 2, 2021
While the nose is where 90% of infections enter the body...the mouth is the number two spot where infection enters. There is a correlation between oral care and systemic health. Alzheimer’s, heart disease, diabetes, and even Covid...all are higher in people that have poor oral hygiene. Nathan Jones, CEO and Founder of Xlear, Inc., the xylitol-product-based company, explains the reason for this is that poor oral hygiene leads to inflammation and, when the mouth is inflamed, more bacteria and viruses pass through the tissue and get into the bloodstream. Studies show that xylitol blocks both bacterial and viral adhesion. For 50 yrs we have known that xylitol prevents tooth decay but now on top of that, we understand how it also helps with our current health crisis. BREAKING NEWS: Government of Dominican Republic authorizes new study of Xlear for prevention of viral infections; Research demonstrates periodontal disease dramatically increases risk of serious Covid outcomes; Major journal calls for research on virucidal strategies for nasal passages; Capsaicin from chili eases sinus symptoms; How respiratory hygiene can counteract inhaled subway air contaminants; Obstacles to communicating truthful, practical science-based health information.

ENCORE: Is Your Metabolism Stuck? Part 1
February 24, 2021
Ann Louise Gittleman, author of "Radical Metabolism," explains why people get “stuck” with impaired metabolism. She shares a novel take on the role of the gallbladder in detoxification; impaired gall bladder function—or its removal—hampers a key pathway for optimal metabolism. Ann Louise is a fan of coffee, hibiscus and oolong tea, bone broth, and a concoction she has named “Citrus Blaster”. She has devised a 4-Day Radical Intensive Cleanse and a 21-Day Radical Reboot. She shares her journey from Director of Nutrition of the low-fat, quasi-vegan Pritikin Institute to her current advocacy of low-carb dieting with ample amounts of healthy fat—but issues some cautions about the Paleo and Keto diet paradigms. Artificial sweeteners are out—but certain natural sweeteners have a place in Ann Louise’s paradigm. She shares her top supplements—including glycine, l-glutamine, and astaxanthin.

Customizing Your Carb Intake for Optimal Health, Part 1
February 23, 2021
Dr. Eric Westman is a leading proponent of the low-carb diet paradigm, and co-author of "End Your Carb Confusion: A Simple Guide to Customize Your Carb Intake for Optimal Health." He relates how he was a young physician at Duke University Medical Center—renowned for the ultra low-fat Rice Diet Program—when he first heard about the Atkins Diet and began a fruitful decades-long collaboration with the Atkins Foundation. He’s developer of the Adapt Your Life Academy Keto Made Simple Master Class. His research has validated the safety and effectiveness of the low-carb diet. Why has prevailing nutrition science disparaged low-carb and keto diets? How strictly must you adhere to low-carb to reap its benefits? Is criticism warranted that, while it may produce weight loss in the short term, it may be harmful in the long-run? What about all those “keto” products out there? Is it necessary to use sophisticated gadgets to gauge whether you’re in ketosis? Should transient rises in LDL cholesterol dissuade people from adhering to a low-carb diet? Can you implement a low-carb diet if you don’t eat meat? Are low-calorie sweeteners allowed? Click HERE for part 2.
