ENCORE: Debunking Myths about Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Part 1
September 14, 2021
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?,” 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.

Childhood Psychiatric and Behavioral Disorders, Part 1
August 18, 2021
Dr. Kenneth Bock joins Intelligent Medicine to discuss his latest book, "Brain Inflamed: Uncovering the hidden causes of anxiety, depression and other mood disorders in adolescents and teens." There’s an unprecedented pandemic of childhood psychiatric and behavioral disorders: attention-deficit/hyperactivity, autism, depression, anxiety and panic attacks, obsessive-compulsive disorder, bipolar disease, and Tourette’s. For decades, Dr. Bock has been delving into root causes of these conditions, for which medications are merely a bandaid. He discusses the roles of allergies, the microbiome, nutrient deficiencies, infections like Lyme and strep, and toxins. Chronic brain inflammation may be at the root of many behavioral changes. Dr. Bock has developed innovative protocols for quenching inflammation using a combination of natural and pharmaceutical interventions. He acknowledges that the teen years are turbulent and kids are subject to many stresses these days, but natural interventions can smooth the transition to adulthood. Dr. Bock is especially fond of what he terms the “Holy Trinity”: vitamin D, fish oil, and probiotics. But he often has recourse to methylated B vitamins, glutathione precursors, curcumin, and CBD. Much detective work is required to unravel complex cases, but remarkable recoveries can be achieved. Click HERE for part 2.

Treating Long Covid, Part 3
August 12, 2021
Continued from Tuesday, August 10. If you’re young and healthy and free of comorbidities, you may not be worried about being hospitalized or dying of Covid. But a new problem is emerging: Even sufferers of mild to moderate Covid continue suffering from a baffling array of debilitating symptoms for months on end. It’s been dubbed “long Covid” or “long haulers’ syndrome”. It’s estimated that 10 percent or more survivors of Covid will come down with it, and it may even hasten progression to dementia and Alzheimer’s Disease. Dr. Leo Galland has done intensive research on this subject, and we’re breaking precedent by going beyond our usual two-part format to do a four-part in-depth review of his findings, consisting of a practical action plan for sufferers of long Covid. The good news is that with the proper measures, there’s now hope for sufferers of long Covid. Dr. Galland offers detailed protocols for restoring mitochondrial function, rebalancing the microbiome, overcoming sleep problems and fatigue, and alleviating brain fog: Healing Long Covid - Leo Galland, M.D. For more of Dr. Hoffman's interview with Dr. Galland, click here: Part 1 Part 2 Part 4
