Nutritional Treatment of Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis, Part 1
April 3, 2018
Dr. Melvyn Grovit specializes in the nutritional treatment of Crohn’s Disease and ulcerative colitis—especially in kids. He describes his first case, that of a 17-year-old with Crohn’s Disease who was emaciated, debilitated, suffering from uncontrollable diarrhea, subject to frequent hospitalizations for intestinal obstruction, his academic career on hold, and at serious risk of early death. The Big Reveal: that patient was Dr. Grovit himself 65 years ago! Now 82, Dr. Grovit is healthy, in full remission without the aid of drugs, and actively treating patients in his nutritional practice in White Plains, New York. What type of diet supports healing of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD)? Once healing has occurred, can you occasionally cheat? Which nutraceuticals has Dr. Grovit found helpful? Probiotics? Omega 3 fish oil? Specialized pro-resolving mediators (SPMs)? Fish peptides? Amino acids? Curcumin? What role can growth hormone (HGH) play in facilitating kids’ recovery? Why hasn’t the gastroenterology establishment embraced these methods? Dr. Grovit shares the remarkable results he’s seen in his practice, including a peer-reviewed study he’s published documenting his successes. He discusses the origins of NIBD in Kids, a non-profit devoted to promoting natural cures for pediatric IBD. Click HERE for part 2.

Kids’ Exposure to Electronic Media, Part 1
February 6, 2018
A conversation with the “Mediatrician”, Dr. Michael Rich, a pediatrician whose practice and research center around kids’ exposure to electronic media. He recently supported a stockholder initiative to persuade Apple to offer more options for parents to shape their children’s media exposure. Are the big social media companies compromising our children’s well-being for the sake of more ad clicks? What are the health consequences—physical and mental—of kids’ heavy use of social media? How does it contribute to obesity? To depression and suicidality? To poor school performance? To sleep deprivation? Why prohibition is not the answer; Is there such a thing as “internet addiction”? Should kids below a certain age have zero screen time? Dr. Rich offers tips to parents and grandparents via his column “Ask the Mediatrician” at the website of his Center on Media and Child Health at http://cmch.tv/parents/askthemediatrician/.

What’s Making Our Children Sick? Part 1
December 19, 2017
There’s an epidemic of chronic childhood diseases, ranging from asthma and allergies, obesity and diabetes, pediatric cancers, GI conditions, autoimmunity, and ADHD, autism, depression and bipolar disorder. Why the sudden uptick? Veteran integrative pediatrician Dr. Michelle Perro, co-author of "What's Making Our Children Sick?: How Industrial Food Is Causing an Epidemic of Chronic Illness, and What Parents (and Doctors) Can Do About It," says it’s largely due to industrialized food, which is highly refined, bereft of nutrients, chemicalized, and genetically modified. She explains how GMO foods undermine kids’ health. Many problems can be traced to alterations of the microbiome and leaky gut syndrome. She argues for “food-focused medicine.” Dr. Perro cites examples of how diet change can reverse devastating illnesses. She outlines which supplements she prefers for kids. Prevention starts with pre-natal nutrition and detoxification. Click HERE for part 2.
