How Modern Culture Rewires our Brains and Damages our Health, Part 1
September 26, 2019
Dr. David Perlmutter, “The Empowering Neurologist,” rolls out some new projects: "Alzheimer’s—the Science of Prevention," a webinar due out October ‘19; "The Microbiome and the Brain" in December; and the new book "Brain Wash: Detox Your Mind for Clearer Thinking, Deeper Relationships, and Lasting Happiness," available in January 2020 - preorder now. Is Dr. Perlmutter still persuaded about the perils of gluten, as previously outlined in "Grain Brain?" What’s more harmful to the brain—excess carbs or saturated fat and cholesterol? Can the ApoE4 gene be overcome with diet and lifestyle measures? What supplements does Dr. Perlmutter recommend for neuroprotection? What about CBD? Why does he claim we are literally and figuratively being “brainwashed”? What roles for exercise, sleep, exposure to nature, fasting, Keto diet, caloric restriction, metformin?

ENCORE: The Impact of Nutrition on the Nervous System, Part 1
June 27, 2019
Metabolic Typing, Acid/Alkaline, and the impact of nutrition on the Autonomic Nervous System. Dr. Colin Ross was so impressed with the miraculous recoveries of Dr. Nicholas Gonzalez’s cancer patients that he sought to preserve his legacy. Why is it that some people thrive on a vegetarian diet, others become weak and sick? Conversely, Paleo or ketogenic diets work great for certain individuals, while others tolerate them poorly? The late Dr. Nicholas Gonzalez addresses this conundrum in his posthumously published book, "Nutrition and the Autonomic Nervous System." The book explains the Kelly Metabolic Types which range from Sympathetic Dominant to Parasympathetic Dominant, each calling for a specific diet and supplement regimen. It turns out that most solid tumors like pancreas and colon are responsive to a primarily vegetarian raw foods diet; patients with “blood cancers” like lymphoma, leukemia and multiple myeloma tend to be supported by diets higher in animal protein. For a Sympathetic Dominant, B12 and Calcium are counter-productive, but they benefit Parasympathetic Dominants; Conversely, magnesium, and potassium are great for Sympathetic Dominants, but Parasympathetic Dominants need less of these nutrients. Kelly’s scheme was refined by Dr. Gonzalez into a remarkably successful protocol for cancer and other challenging medical conditions with the incorporation of mega-doses of pancreatic enzymes and detoxification protocols like liver flushes and coffee enemas.

Fending Off Neurodegenerative Diseases, Part 1
February 14, 2019
Board-certified neurologist, Dr. Phillipe Douyon, creator of the BrainFit™️ app, joins us to talk about ways to support brain health and fend off neurodegenerative disease. We needn’t be resigned to progressive loss of brain function with aging, because new findings about neuroplasticity reveal that the brain can remodel and rejuvenate itself, actually regenerating brain cells and neural circuits. Dr. Douyon reveals why, with the limited success of drugs for conditions like Parkinson’s and ALS, we need to invoke a comprehensive lifestyle program to address brain health. This comprises sleep, stress reduction, exercise, social connection, avoidance of toxins, and diet. Even poor dental hygiene may influence brain health. Among the supplements that are helpful are fish oil, curcumin, B vitamins and antioxidants like alpha lipoic acid. Dr. Douyon, who specializes in the treatment of epilepsy reveals the role of ketogenic diets in patients who don’t respond to conventional treatment? Are refined carbs and gluten really potentially harmful to the brain? What role for the microbiome in brain health? Which drugs are memory robbers? Can statins have harmful effects on the brain?

ENCORE: Natural Treatment of Neurological Disorders, Part 1
January 3, 2019
Dr. Sidney Kurn, co-author of "Herbs and Nutrients for Neurological Disorders," details natural treatment strategies for Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, stroke, multiple sclerosis, migraine, and seizures. A veteran neurologist, Dr. Kurn contends that shared mechanisms underlie many neurodegenerative diseases: mitochondrial dysfunction, disruption of the microbiome, free radicals, neuro-excitation, nutrient insufficiencies, environmental toxicity, and genetics. What’s the role for marijuana compounds in alleviating neurodegeneration? How are heavy metals implicated? Why are organic foods preferable? What role for supplements like ubiquinol, inosine, B vitamins, antioxidants, Mucuna pruriens, curcumin, resveratrol, huperzine, acetyl-l-carnitine, Omega 3s, magnesium taurate, nicotinamide riboside, ginkgo biloba and PQQ?

A Deep-Dive on Fish Oil, Part 1
November 13, 2018
“It’s time to rethink fish oil”—so say recent press articles that downplay the efficacy of Omega-3 supplements. Jolie Root, RN, Medical Educator for Carlson Laboratories, and host of the “Food for Thought” radio show, offers a balanced perspective on the findings of fish oil research—with over 35,000 publications as of 2018. What’s wrong with the recent “ASCEND” Study that erroneously purports to demonstrate that fish oil offers no benefit to diabetics? Is Krill oil a superior delivery system for Omega-3s? What about flax oil? What options are available for vegetarians? What benefits of fish oil for immunity? For prenatal nutrition? For neurodegenerative diseases? Is it true that fish oil must be avoided if you’re contemplating surgery or taking blood thinners? Click HERE for part 2.
