Ozone Therapy, Part 1
April 9, 2019
Ozone therapy is considered one of the more exotic modalities of Integrative Medicine, but today’s guest, Dr. Isadora Guggenheim (www.secondnaturecare.com) brings scientific rigor to its application to a variety of conditions. Guggenheim is a naturopathic physician (ND), as well as an RN and nutritionist. What’s the history of ozone therapy? How does it work? How can we reconcile its healing properties with concerns about ozone as a cause of respiratory injury? Doesn’t it generate free radicals when introduced into the body? Guggenheim explains the seeming paradox by marshaling evidence that medical ozone revs the body’s antioxidant defenses; ozone is a potent disinfectant, combatting viruses, bacteria and fungi alike. It also selectively targets cancer cells while sparing healthy cells. Athletes use ozone to boost performance; many patients attest to ozone’s energizing and mood-enhancing effects. What are the various ways ozone can be administered? What conditions respond to ozone? Does research support its safety and effectiveness? On a separate note, Guggenheim describes laser vaginal rejuvenation—The Mona Lisa Touch procedure—as an alternative to hormones for vaginal dryness and painful intercourse. Click HERE for part 2.

Your Immune System—A Primer, Part 1
March 19, 2019
Pulitzer Prize-winning NY Times journalist Matt Richtel is author of "An Elegant Defense: The Extraordinary New Science of the Immune System." The book traces the history of our understanding of the immune system and reviews cutting edge strategies for addressing our current epidemics of autoimmunity, allergy and cancer. Richtel introduces us to the immune system—it’s a delicate balance of forces designed to protect us from invaders while checking over-exuberant Immune responses. How do white blood cells—neutrophils, B-Cells, T-Cells Natural Killer cells, macrophages, eosinophils and other specialized cells cooperate to orchestrate the immune response? Why is there now a mismatch between the immune systems we evolved with and our modern environment? How is getting sick actually part of being healthy? What roles for diet, sleep, and stress reduction in keeping our immune systems balanced? Richtel previews breakthrough strategies for harnessing the immune system to treat cancer and HIV. Are age-related changes in immunity inevitable consequences of “planned obsolescence” that places limits on human longevity? Click HERE for part 2.
