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.

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.

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?

The Nutraceuticals of the Decade? Part 1
May 1, 2018
There’s more to hemp than just CBD (cannabidiol). So says Carl Germano, expert on cannabinoids and Vice President of Verdant Oasis, a quality manufacturer and supplier of hemp-sourced products. Germano explains the “Entourage Effect” whereby numerous compounds in hemp act synergistically on a multitude of physiological pathways. Natural plant-derived cannabinoids have the potential to be the nutraceuticals of the decade. They have been used in folk medicine for nervous disorders and painful conditions for millennia. What’s their utility for headaches? For back pain? As an alternative to opiates and NSAIDs? For insomnia? To prevent and reverse osteoporosis? For ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s Disease? For skin problems? To support athletic performance and recovery? For neurodegenerative disorders? Even for cancer? Why has hemp been unfairly stigmatized? What’s its legal status? How do the various delivery systems compare: oral capsules, tinctures, vaping, vs. topical application? Germano details what consumers should look for in terms of quality considerations. As a postscript, in light of his authorship of The Osteoporosis Solution, Germano weighs in on the bone benefits of ipriflavone.
