ENCORE: One of the Worst Treated Conditions in Western Medicine, Part 1
December 3, 2020
Dr. Sarah Myhill is one of Britain’s foremost experts on Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS), or as it’s sometimes referred to there, Myalgic Encephalitis (ME). In her book, “Sustainable Medicine,” she claims that “CFS is one of the worst treated conditions in Western Medicine.” Patients are sometimes told to just exercise, or undergo psychotherapy, to recover. Myhill vociferously disagrees, asserting: “Its mitochondria, not hypochondria!” She dismisses the notorious PACE study, which had become the standard of care for CFS sufferers with “graded exercise,” as scientific fraud. How do you repair the mitochondria and boost their function? Why is the Paleo-Ketogenic Diet central to recovery? What does the ATP profile test tell us about mitochondrial function? Dr. Myhill’s pioneering studies document objective improvements in patients’ cellular energetics, in addition to subjective reports of symptom amelioration. What are the five basic supplements she recommends? Why are support of thyroid and adrenal function critical? What role for sleep? How do infections undermine mitochondrial efficiency? Why is detoxification so important for some CFS sufferers? How do heat treatments and chelation help? Dr. Myhill continues to campaign for the rights of CFS patients to be properly diagnosed and treated in the face of what she terms “systemic medical abuse.” Click HERE for part 2.

ENCORE: The Way Human Beings are Supposed to Eat, Part 1
October 27, 2020
Professor Tim Noakes is a South African medical doctor and a respected exercise physiologist. Decades ago, he wrote the best-selling "The Lore of Running," in which he advocated a low-fat carbo-loading diet for optimal athletic performance. But when he himself developed Type 2 Diabetes, he had second thoughts and began researching the low-carb, high-fat (LCHF) dietary paradigm. The result: He reversed his diabetes, sold 200,000 copies of his new book, "The Real Meal Revolution," but then became the target of an Inquisition-style prosecution for dietary heresy. In what became dubbed “the Nutrition Trial of the Century” Professor Noakes valiantly upheld science in the face of a concerted attack from the medical orthodoxy. We discuss how he finally prevailed. Why has the diet controversy become so politicized? Why does Professor Noakes consider the Agricultural Revolution “one of mankind’s biggest mistakes”? Why is the Banting diet particularly suited to the dietary needs of South Africans? Don’t some people do OK with carbohydrates? What’s the impact of the LCHF on athletic performance? What research is the Noakes Foundation undertaking? How is it trying to democratize low-carb dieting for the masses? Click HERE for part 2.

Is Your Metabolism Stuck? Part 1
March 12, 2019
Ann Louise Gittleman, author of "Radical Metabolism," explains why people get “stuck” with impaired metabolism. She shares a novel take on the role of the gallbladder in detoxification; impaired gall bladder function—or its removal—hampers a key pathway for optimal metabolism. Ann Louise is a fan of coffee, hibiscus and oolong tea, bone broth, and a concoction she has named “Citrus Blaster”. She has devised a 4-Day Radical Intensive Cleanse and a 21-Day Radical Reboot. She shares her journey from Director of Nutrition of the low-fat, quasi-vegan Pritikin Institute to her current advocacy of low-carb dieting with ample amounts of healthy fat—but issues some cautions about the Paleo and Keto diet paradigms. Artificial sweeteners are out—but certain natural sweeteners have a place in Ann Louise’s paradigm. She shares her top supplements—including glycine, l-glutamine, and astaxanthin.
