Do You Have a Healthy Microbiome? Part 1
May 8, 2018
Visionary entrepreneur Naveen Jain is the founder of Viome, dedicated to research on how the microbiome impacts our health. Why is it that some people thrive on the very same diet that undermines the wellness of others? Some do well on whole grains, others on Paleo, still others have the seeming ability to metabolize a wide variety of foods. The answer may lie in our microbiome, comprising trillions of organisms harbored in our GI tracts. They are responsible for biotransformation of foods into vital nutrients—or, alternatively, into dangerous toxins, endocrine disruptors, or pro-inflammatory compounds. And there’s tremendous variation from person to person. Viome is harnessing the tremendous potential of artificial intelligence and machine learning to interpret complex findings from stool tests to yield actionable, specific dietary recommendations—a pioneering technology. What is a diversity score? How does Viome measure a person’s potential for inflammation? How can you learn whether you have a healthy microbiome? What’s on the launch pad for Viome? Will this technology be the future of nutritional medicine? Click HERE for part 2.

The Epidemic of Diabetes, Part 1
May 3, 2018
Dr. David Perlmutter is America’s foremost Integrative neurologist and pioneering author of "Grain Brain." Five years after its publication, with over a million copies sold worldwide in twenty languages, he reflects on its success and the vindication of its central tenets: That America’s low-fat high/carb mania has promoted an epidemic of diabetes, just when optimal blood sugar is gaining recognition as fundamental to brain health; that gluten is demonstrably harmful via its effects on gut permeability; and that fat and cholesterol phobia has deprived our brains of essential nutrients. He emphasizes the centrality of exercise to prevention and reversal of dementia. The latest research underlies the concept of neuroplasticity—that the adult brain has the capacity to repair and regenerate. What newly-discovered factor helps to literally regrow brain cells? Does genetics dictate our neurological fate? Or can lifestyle overcome our heredity? What roles for sleep? Stress reduction? Coffee? Alcohol? Bio-identical hormone replacement? The microbiome? Cannabinoids? Ketogenic diet? What drugs take a toll on brain function? Dr. Perlmutter will soon be featured nationwide in a PBS Special entitled “Dr. Perlmutter’s Whole Life Plan”.

Leyla Weighs In
April 27, 2018
Nutritionist Leyla Muedin tackles this listener question: I recently watched an interview of Dr. Bruce Blumberg of The Obesogen Effect and the takeaway message is we are mostly programmed at birth with the ability to lose weight, or not, due to the impact of environmental toxin on our microbiome. Is this true?

Repairing Damaged Cells, A Powerful Healthy Aging Strategy, Part 1
April 24, 2018
Prof. Garth Nicolson is recognized as a pioneer in research on the mitochondria, the energy factories within cells. Mitochondrial dysfunction plays a role in a myriad of diseases, as well as in the aging process. Fatigue is its cardinal symptom. The mitochondria are implicated in chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), fibromyalgia, Alzheimer’s Disease, chronic infections like Lyme Disease, Gulf War Syndrome, cardiovascular disease, metabolic syndrome and obesity, autism, and even some cancers. Prof. Nicolson has demonstrated that membrane lipid replacement therapy (LRT) with glycerolphospholipids (NT Factor) can facilitate recovery from many of these disorders. Clinical studies have demonstrated that LRT can increase energy levels by 40% or more. What companion nutrients also support mitochondrial performance? How much NT Factor do you need to take? How fast does it take effect? Prof. Nicolson shares exciting results of clinical trials he’s currently undertaking with LRT. Learn about NT Factor clinical trials by clicking HERE.
