Bias Against Nutritional Supplements, Part 1
September 13, 2022
Dr. Alan Gaby comments on bias against nutritional supplements. He recently penned an op-ed entitled “They’re telling us that nutritional supplements are a waste of money”. He is the author of the textbook “Nutritional Medicine” which contains thousands of references to studies substantiating the benefits of supplements. Is there collusion between the pharmaceutical industry, government regulators, politicians, and compliant media to rein in the supplement industry? Why has the press uncritically focussed on the alleged harms of supplements? What’s wrong with studies claiming lack of efficacy of multivitamins, fish oil, and vitamin D? Dr. Gaby takes an even-handed approach, citing instances of over-arching claims about nutrients; he urges “humility” and scientific rigor in nutrition science, and decries the missed opportunity for study of the promising roles of diet, lifestyle, and nutraceuticals afforded by our quest for measures to control the pandemic.

ENCORE: How Cannabis-Based Products Can Address a Variety of Conditions, Part 1
September 7, 2022
Amid the strident controversy over medical marijuana’s legitimacy, Dr. Patricia Frye offers a reasoned and scientifically-based evaluation of how cannabis-based products can address a variety of conditions in her book, "The Medical Marijuana Guide: Cannabis and Your Health." Cannabinoids work to alleviate pain via a variety of pathways, making them a preferable alternative—or safe adjunct—to addictive or dangerous pain meds; They may help neurological conditions like Parkinson’s Disease, Alzheimer’s, MS and seizures; They bring relief to sufferers of GI conditions like colitis, Crohn’s Disease and IBS. They are wonderful for anxiety and insomnia, and may help lift mood in depression. When is CBD alone enough, and what conditions require the addition of THC? Can you get relief without the disorienting “high”? Why does Dr. Frye urge a “less is more” approach when it comes to dosing? How to choose among delivery systems—capsules, tinctures, edibles, vaping, nebulizing, topicals? Is there a likelihood of dependency? Does condoning medical marijuana open the floodgates to more widespread recreational use by kids with neurodevelopmental consequences? Does CBD or THC interact with prescription medications? What about possible contaminants—how to insure you’re getting “clean” products? Click HERE for part 2.
