Debunking Myths about Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Part 1
September 17, 2019
One of the world’s most authoritative experts on Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), author of "The Digestive Health Solution," dispels myths about this poorly understood condition. In an article entitled “Does Irritable Bowel Syndrome Exist?” https://www.mdpi.com/2624-5647/1/3/27/htm Dr. Benjamin Brown challenges the notion that it’s one overarching disease; rather there are many subtypes, amenable to solutions other than routine antispasmodics, antidepressants, and fiber supplements that deliver relief to a mere 25% of sufferers. And it’s not just a psychological disorder. He discusses the role of diet, probiotics, and herbs. What about the low-FODMAP diet? Gluten-avoidance? Food allergies? Histamine intolerance? Pancreatic enzymes? Cognitive-behavioral therapy and stress reduction? Is there a relationship between IBS and fibromyalgia? Click HERE for part 2.

ENCORE: Sleep Disordered Breathing, Part 1
September 5, 2019
Sleep Disordered Breathing (SDB) may be the overlooked missing link to many maladies including chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, headaches, obesity, anxiety, depression, TMJ, hypertension, diabetes, heart disease and even Alzheimer's. In children and adolescents, it may cause Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). Dr. Michael Gelb, co-author of "Gasp," describes the range of symptoms airway disorders can provoke. Why are they so prevalent? Is it something about our modern lifestyles? Is SDB the same as sleep apnea? How is it diagnosed? Even if you don't snore, could you have airway problems? Who should suspect they might have SDB? Why do airway problems damage the heart and brain? How do they rev up pain pathways? What's their relationship to weight gain? What treatment options exist for patients with SDB? How are their lives transformed? Click HERE for part 2.
