ENCORE: The Benefits—and Limitations—of Intermittent Fasting, Part 1
July 6, 2022
In recognition of my collaboration on a review article, "Recommending Intermittent Fasting," in the "Natural Medicine Journal" with its publisher, Karolyn Gazella, I invited her on to share our research on the benefits—and limitations—of intermittent fasting, and specifically time restricted feeding (TRF). Reducing your eating window to just 8 or 10 hours a day may aid weight loss, but it does so much more: TRF has been demonstrated to reboot metabolism, provide some of the benefits of a keto diet, promote autophagy and cellular resilience, with disease-fighting and anti-aging potential. We discuss its application to metabolic syndrome and diabetes, cognitive enhancement, as an adjunct to cancer therapy, for cardiovascular prevention, as well as for inflammatory disorders. How best to implement TRF; when TRF might not be suitable; why exercise + TRF might be synergistic. Click HERE for part 2.

ENCORE: Conflicts of Interest in Cancer Treatment, Part 1
July 5, 2022
Ralph Moss, Ph.D. writes the Moss Reports, custom guides for cancer patients to help them navigate alternatives. His new book, "Cancer Incorporated," is a critique of the excesses of the cancer research and treatment industry. Moss decries the conflicts of interest in cancer treatment, often amounting to outright kickbacks. He claims the criteria for approval of new and expensive drugs, touted as “game-changers”, are vague and misleading; their benefits are often exaggerated and their downsides minimized. All this is fueled by rampant profiteering, at the cost of patients’ well-being. Natural solutions are sidelined because of being unprofitable. Patients strive to get into clinical trials of promising drugs, but sometimes at their peril. Moss hails advances in precision immunotherapy, but believes their promise is over-hyped. He shares his own experience in dealing with cancer, which ultimately led him to embrace a conventional, but little-used, approach to minimize side effects. Click HERE for part 2.

It’s no secret that omega-3 fatty acids support healthy levels of inflammation, and cardiovascular and brain health.

Vital Nutrients Ultra Pure Vegan Omega retains the health advantages of fish-derived Omega-3s, while delivering ultra-potent SPMs (specialized pro-resolving mediators). Click HERE for part 2.
