    ENCORE: Natural Therapies for G.I. Disorders, Part 1

    05/11/2020 Duración: 27min

    Meet New York City’s first integrative gastroenterologist—Dr. Alexandra Shustina. While versed in conventional methods of addressing GI complaints, she has concluded that “many patients are treated inappropriately.” Powerful drugs are invoked when natural therapies, like diet, supplements, and stress management are insufficiently leveraged. Calling upon her training in osteopathic medicine, Dr. Shustina employs visceral manipulation to address such conditions as GERD, IBS, and severe constipation. She describes the constraints she experiences in introducing a holistic perspective to her young GI trainees in a hospital setting. She discusses the limitations inherent in using powerful immunosuppressive drugs for ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s Disease. What problems are associated with the pervasive use of potent acid-suppressing medications? When can digestive enzymes help GI complaints? What role for probiotics? Colostrum? Chinese herbal formulas? Vitamin D? Is the Specific Carbohydrate Diet the best regimen f

    ENCORE: The Epidemic of Diabetes, Part 1

    03/11/2020 Duración: 25min

    Dr. David Perlmutter is America’s foremost Integrative neurologist and pioneering author of "Grain Brain." Five years after its publication, with over a million copies sold worldwide in twenty languages, he reflects on its success and the vindication of its central tenets: That America’s low-fat high/carb mania has promoted an epidemic of diabetes, just when optimal blood sugar is gaining recognition as fundamental to brain health; that gluten is demonstrably harmful via its effects on gut permeability; and that fat and cholesterol phobia has deprived our brains of essential nutrients. He emphasizes the centrality of exercise to prevention and reversal of dementia. The latest research underlies the concept of neuroplasticity—that the adult brain has the capacity to repair and regenerate. What newly-discovered factor helps to literally regrow brain cells? Does genetics dictate our neurological fate? Or can lifestyle overcome our heredity? What roles for sleep? Stress reduction? Coffee? Alcohol? Bio-identical h

    Dr. Joseph Pizzorno, one of the founders of Integrative and Functional Medicine and author of "The Toxin Solution," takes a look at how environmental toxins affect our health. He has undertaken one of the largest studies to date that links various forms of toxic exposures to common diseases like diabetes, Alzheimer’s, coronary artery disease, fatty liver, and even childhood behavioral problems. Toxins are ubiquitous in our modern environment. How to tell if you're toxic? Are there blood or urine tests? Is it worth it to eat organic foods exclusively? What are other ways that toxins find their way into our bodies even if we’re not industrial workers or farmers applying pesticides and herbicides? What are “Obesogens”? Are there ways to facilitate detox? What role for glutathione? Milk thistle? Dietary fiber? What’s the deal with heavy metals? Arsenic? Can they be removed?

    ENCORE: The Way Human Beings are Supposed to Eat, Part 1

    27/10/2020 Duración: 24min

    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
