ENCORE: The Devastating Health Effects of Hormone-Disrupting Chemicals, Part 1
October 7, 2021
"Sicker, Fatter, Poorer" is a book about the devastating health effects of hormone-disrupting chemicals. Pediatrician Leo Trasande describes how hormone-disrupting chemicals get into our bodies; how they can mimic our natural hormones and what are the consequences in terms of development and disease including diabetes and obesity, brain disorders, infertility, endometriosis, fibroids, and breast and prostate cancer; how we can limit our exposure; and how we can vote with our consumer dollars to push for safer food and household products. What are “gender benders”? How do non-stick compounds compromise thyroid function? What are the dangers of can liners and plastic wrappers? How do “obesogens” thwart our best efforts to diet and exercise? How do these chemicals perpetuate a cycle of poverty for the poor and minorities? Do environmental regulations need to be made more stringent? Sicker, Fatter, Poorer" is a book about the devastating health effects of hormone-disrupting chemicals.

ENCORE: DNA testing: Is it ready for Prime-Time? Part 1
September 16, 2021
Dr. Sharon Hausman-Cohen, Chief Medical Director of IntellxxDNA, shares her perspective on the genetic testing revolution. What’s the difference between a mutation and a SNP (single nucleotide polymorphism)? How does the IntellxxDNA test differ from, say, 23andMe? Isn’t it potentially scary to find out you have a “bad” gene, like the ApoE4 gene that’s associated with Alzheimer’s Disease risk? Can genetic risk factors be overcome with diet, exercise, and targeted supplements? IntellxxDNA pinpoints obesity genes, genes that predispose to diabetes and heart disease, macular degeneration, autoimmune disorders, thyroid problems and osteoporosis. Certain SNPs predict the likelihood of neurodegenerative diseases when exposed to environmental toxins like mercury and glyphosate. Others may dictate higher requirements for antioxidants, B vitamins, magnesium, vitamin D, and choline. Why is the IntellxxDNA test only available through health practitioners? Some critics say genetic testing is only in its infancy and not yet ready for primetime—is this mistaken? What can genomic testing tell us about remedial strategies for autism?

Childhood Psychiatric and Behavioral Disorders, Part 1
August 18, 2021
Dr. Kenneth Bock joins Intelligent Medicine to discuss his latest book, "Brain Inflamed: Uncovering the hidden causes of anxiety, depression and other mood disorders in adolescents and teens." There’s an unprecedented pandemic of childhood psychiatric and behavioral disorders: attention-deficit/hyperactivity, autism, depression, anxiety and panic attacks, obsessive-compulsive disorder, bipolar disease, and Tourette’s. For decades, Dr. Bock has been delving into root causes of these conditions, for which medications are merely a bandaid. He discusses the roles of allergies, the microbiome, nutrient deficiencies, infections like Lyme and strep, and toxins. Chronic brain inflammation may be at the root of many behavioral changes. Dr. Bock has developed innovative protocols for quenching inflammation using a combination of natural and pharmaceutical interventions. He acknowledges that the teen years are turbulent and kids are subject to many stresses these days, but natural interventions can smooth the transition to adulthood. Dr. Bock is especially fond of what he terms the “Holy Trinity”: vitamin D, fish oil, and probiotics. But he often has recourse to methylated B vitamins, glutathione precursors, curcumin, and CBD. Much detective work is required to unravel complex cases, but remarkable recoveries can be achieved. Click HERE for part 2.
