The Crucial Role of the Microbiome in Immunity, Part 1
April 15, 2021
Christine Rosche, M.P.H., C.N.S., Board Certified Nutrition Specialist and Digestive Health Expert developed an integrative approach to digestive health based on 25 years experience in the health care field. She describes how an imbalanced microbiome predisposes to bad Covid outcomes; additional studies suggest that drastic alterations to intestinal contents occur with Covid infections, and may be responsible for the persistence of symptoms in Covid “long-haulers”. Rosche describes the suite of tests that can help evaluate the status of the microbiome. A HeartMath™️ evaluation of heart rate variability can show whether stress is impairing a patient’s recovery. Additionally, a little-acknowledged effect results from continual exposure to electromagnetic fields (EMFs). Diet modification, pre-and probiotics, targeted nutraceuticals, and stress reduction can reverse harmful alterations of the microbiome. Click HERE for part 2.

A Remarkable Functional Food: Himalayan Tartary Buckwheat, Part 1
March 11, 2021
A conversation with the founder of the Functional Medicine movement, Dr. Jeffrey Bland. His latest innovation is the identification and popularization of a remarkable functional food, Himalayan Tartary Buckwheat (HTB). It contains an array of immunorestorative compounds, as well as unique prebiotics supportive of a healthy microbiome. HTB is available as a food ingredient, or as a concentrated supplement, HTB Rejuvenate™️. New findings suggest HTB optimizes immune parameters, counteracts insulin resistance, and improves subjective well-being of experimental subjects. Dr. Bland further weighs in on the ideal diet, the lessons of the pandemic, and why we need a renewed focus on natural antecedents to health even as we move past Covid-19. Click HERE for part 2.

Everything You’ve Been Told About Food is Wrong, Part 1
February 2, 2021
Dr. Tim Spector explains why almost everything we’ve been told about food is wrong in his new book “Spoon-Fed.” Dr. Spector is a UK-based physician/researcher who is an expert in gut health and nutritional epidemiology. He has pioneered the ZOE app which seeks to personalize nutrition recommendations based on artificial intelligence algorithms. Dr. Spector’s new book assails popular diet myths, e.g. one-size-fits-all diet claims; that weight gain is simply a matter of calories; universal recommendations for low-salt diets; coffee is bad for you; meat is harmful; exercise is all you need to stave off weight gain, and pesticides and herbicides that have been approved for human consumption are safe. He’s particularly concerned about the pervasiveness of ultra-processed foods in the U.S. and U.K. Dr. Spector previews a soon-to-be-released paper he’s been working on that links poor dietary habits to worse COVID outcomes. He maintains his research findings could provide the impetus for a major effort to reform diet policy in Western industrialized countries. Dr. Spector is offering you, as an Intelligent Medicine Listener, a special discount at ZOE, just use coupon code: IMED35. Click HERE for part 2.
