Episode #22: Food sensitivities: Causes, prevention, and solutions
Download this podcast Dr. Aristo Vojdani is back to explain some fascinating basics about food sensitivities and oral tolerance. For instance, did you know dental cavities and gum disease can increase your risk of food sensitivities and autoimmunity? Or that eating the same food too often can weaken your immunity? You’ll learn about "nature’s vaccine" — secretory IgA (SIgA) — that will make you want to become an SIgA warrior so you can stay healthier, enjoy a more diverse diet, and maintain healthy immunity. Dr. Vojdani explains Cyrex Labs’ Array 14 screen of mucosal immunity (SIgA) and how to make sure your SIgA levels are healthy prior to testing. Dr. Vojdani's bio: Aristo Vojdani, PhD, MSc, CLS, obtained his MSc and PhD in the fields of microbiology and clincal immunology from Bar-Ilan University in Israel with postdoctoral studies in comparative immunology at UCLA and tumor immunology at Charles Drew/UCLA School of Medicine and Science. He is an Adjunct Associate Professor in the Dept. of Preventive Medicine at Loma Linda University in California, and an Adjunct Professor at the Lincoln College of Professional, Graduate and Continuing Education at the National University of Health Sciences. His ongoing research focuses on the role of environmental triggers in complex diseases. Dr. Vojdani's research has resulted in the development of more than 300 antibody assays for the detection of autoimmune disorders and other diseases. He holds fifteen US patents for laboratory assessments of immune disorders associated with the brain and gut, has published more than 170 articles in magazines and scientific journals, and has just published the book "Neuroimmunity and the Brain-Gut Connection" with Nova Science Publishers. He is the CEO and Technical Director of Immunosciences Lab in Los Angeles, California, and is also the Chief Scientific Advisor for Cyrex Labs in Phoenix, Arizona. Dr. Vojdani sits on the editorial board of five scientific journals. Over the years he has received the Herbert J. Rinkel Award, the Linus Pauling, PhD Award, and the F. R.

Episode #21: Functional neurology for rheumatoid arthritis and gut problems
Download this podcast A patient with painful symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) went to doctor after doctor but her tests kept coming back negative, which is common in the early stages of RA. When she went to see Dr. Geronimo, he saw in her obvious signs of autoimmunity. Although functional medicine protocols helped, it was functional neurology to address cerebellar decline that really turned this patient around — her gut function was restored in less than a week. Dr. Geronimo explains how you can tell if your brain plays a role in your gut problems, and how Zumba, Tai Chi, and core exercises can serve as profound neurological rehabilitation in some cases. Dr. Rommel Geronimo is a functional medicine and functional neurology practitioner in the San Diego area. http://sdbraincenter.com/

Episode #10: How you can detect increased risk of brain development disorders such as autism, ADD, ADHD, in newborns and infants
Download this podcast In this episode, Dr. David Rosenthal explains how we can detect brain development dysfunction as early as in newborns. Once you understand some early neurological development basics, you can watch your baby for signs of milestones that aren’t happening or happening unevely. Likewise, he explains the neurology behind intuition and why parents should trust theirs even if a doctor brushes them off. Catching these signs early can alert you to an increased risk of autism, ADD, ADHD, tics, and so on so you can take action sooner rather than later and help the brain get on track. Whether a baby cries too much or is too lethargic, paying attention to subtleties can help you steer your baby’s brain in the right direction sooner rather than later with some functional neurology help. Dr. Rosenthal is presenting at the 2017 IAFNR functional neurology conference (iafnr.org). You can learn more about Dr. Rosenthal at http://www.davidrosenthaldc.com/. With host Elaine Marshall.
