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: The Link Between Diet and Inflammation, Part 1
September 12, 2019
Dr. David Seaman, author of "The DeFlame Diet," was the first to identify the link between diet and inflammation in a landmark 2002 journal article entitled: "The diet-induced pro-inflammatory state." What medical disorders are caused by inflammation? What is "inflamm-aging"? How do foods drive inflammation in the body? Dr. Seaman highlights sugars, flour products, and vegetable oils as the main culprits. Contrary to popular belief, he contends, meats are not generally pro-inflammatory. What foods constitute "dietary crack"? Can certain foods like gluten and dairy stoke inflammation in susceptible individuals? What foods are anti-inflammatory? How do sleep, exercise, and stress affect our inflammation levels? Why does excess body fat perpetuate inflammation? Click HERE for part 2.

DNA testing: Is it ready for Prime-Time? Part 1
August 15, 2019
Dr. Sharon Hausman-Cohen, Chief Medical Director of IntellxxDNA, shares her perspective on the genetic testing revolution. What’s the difference between a mutation and a SNP (single nucleotide polymorphism)? How does the IntellxxDNA test differ from, say, 23andMe? Isn’t it potentially scary to find out you have a “bad” gene, like the ApoE4 gene that’s associated with Alzheimer’s Disease risk? Can genetic risk factors be overcome with diet, exercise, and targeted supplements? IntellxxDNA pinpoints obesity genes, genes that predispose to diabetes and heart disease, macular degeneration, autoimmune disorders, thyroid problems and osteoporosis. Certain SNPs predict the likelihood of neurodegenerative diseases when exposed to environmental toxins like mercury and glyphosate. Others may dictate higher requirements for antioxidants, B vitamins, magnesium, vitamin D, and choline. Why is the IntellxxDNA test only available through health practitioners? Some critics say genetic testing is only in its infancy and not yet ready for primetime—is this mistaken? What can genomic testing tell us about remedial strategies for autism?
