ENCORE: A Pandemic of Elevated Uric Acid, Part 1
February 1, 2024
Dr. David Perlmutter, integrative neurologist and author of "Grain Brain," has a new book: "Drop Acid: The Surprising New Science of Uric Acid—The Key to Losing Weight, Controlling Blood Sugar, and Achieving Extraordinary Health." Dr. Perlmutter highlights the central role that uric acid plays in, not just gout, but a plethora of metabolic and degenerate conditions that afflict modern men and women. He decries the lax guidelines that allow at-risk patients to suffer high uric acid, and argues for more stringent standards, preferring a uric acid of 5.5 or less as optimal. He describes how uric acid was once adaptive in prehistoric times as a measure to offset times of famine; now, with sedentary lifestyles, unlimited food, and vastly increased carbohydrate consumption, there’s a pandemic of elevated uric acid. He dispels the notion that lowering uric acid is just a matter of avoiding animal protein; dietary fructose from soft drinks and processed food and desserts is a far worse culprit. Dr. Perlmutter highlights certain nutrients that lower uric acid: vitamin C, coffee polyphenols, tart cherry concentrate, luteolin, and quercetin. What type of alcohol we consume also has an impact on uric acid, as does excessive salt consumption. Dr. Perlmutter introduces us to a home test that can empower patients to monitor their uric acid.

Continuous Glucose Monitoring: A Pathway to Optimizing Health, Part 1
January 18, 2024
Continuous glucose monitors (CGMs) – those devices that provide 24/7 blood glucose readings – are not just for diabetics anymore. Data from CGMs provide a pathway to disease prevention and reversal, such as obesity, hypertension, high cholesterol, prediabetes, fatty liver disease, GERD and more. Dr. Paul Kolodzik, Board Certified in both Emergency Medicine and Preventive Medicine, is author of “The Continuous Glucose Monitor Revolution For Nondiabetics.” He discusses CGMs, insulin resistance, low carb and keto, intermittent fasting, even the prudent use of the new FDA-approved weight loss medications like Ozempic.

Nutrition-Based Approaches as an Alternative to Psychiatric Medications, Part 1
January 9, 2024
The most powerful way to change brain chemistry is with food, because that’s where brain chemicals come from in the first place. Georgia Ede, MD, is a Harvard-trained psychiatrist specializing in nutrition science, brain metabolism, and mental health. She discusses her new book, "Change Your Diet, Change Your Mind: A Powerful Plan to Improve Mood, Overcome Anxiety, and Protect Memory for a Lifetime of Optimal Mental Health." She empowers you to understand how unscientific research methods drive fickle nutrition headlines and illogical dietary guidelines, weigh the risks and benefits of your favorite foods so you can make your own informed choices about what to eat, evaluate yourself for signs of insulin resistance—the silent metabolic disease that robs your brain of the energy it needs to thrive, and improve your mental health with a choice of moderate-carbohydrate and ketogenic diets that you can personalize to your food preferences and health goals.
