ENCORE: Debunking Myths about Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Part 1
September 14, 2021
One of the world’s most authoritative experts on Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), author of "The Digestive Health Solution," dispels myths about this poorly understood condition. In an article entitled “Does Irritable Bowel Syndrome Exist?,” Dr. Benjamin Brown challenges the notion that it’s one overarching disease; rather there are many subtypes, amenable to solutions other than routine antispasmodics, antidepressants, and fiber supplements that deliver relief to a mere 25% of sufferers. And it’s not just a psychological disorder. He discusses the role of diet, probiotics, and herbs. What about the low-FODMAP diet? Gluten-avoidance? Food allergies? Histamine intolerance? Pancreatic enzymes? Cognitive-behavioral therapy and stress reduction? Is there a relationship between IBS and fibromyalgia? Click HERE for part 2.

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.

Skin Dysbiosis: How To Protect Your Skin Microbiome, Part 1
July 27, 2021
The skin is the body’s largest organ. Every inch of it is covered with bacteria—sometimes up to a billion per square centimeter. That’s the skin microbiome. But those microbes on the skin surface can also influence the behavior of cells below the epidermis and, in turn, those cells communicate with our tissues, and even our brains. Kat James, award-winning author of “The Truth About Beauty” and renowned nutrition and inside-out transformation expert, has new scientific insights connecting our skin to our inner ecology, and how we can help or hinder that connection in some very unexpected and simple ways.

Tips for a Healthy Garden & Soil – and a Healthier You this Spring! Part 1
May 4, 2021
Howard Garrett, "The Dirt Doctor," is a leading expert in natural organic gardening and landscaping. He details the parallel between detoxifying and restoring health to the soil and that of improving our internal environments. Just as it is important to have beneficial microbes in the soil along with a supportive soil base high in nutritious organic material, our intestinal tract could be compared to a soil bed. If the intestinal tract is healthy, there is a matrix of beneficial bacteria that reside in that intestinal lining. In turn, they help break down fibers and produce beneficial compounds – called postbiotics – that promote better digestion, support the immune system, and even produce important vitamins that we need for a host of body functions. And just like the deterioration of the microbes and soil web lead to poor growth and health of the plants in that soil, the overuse of antibiotics, highly processed foods, chemical preservatives, etc. wreaks havoc on our internal microbiome. As a result, poor health ensues. Click HERE for part 2.
