Episode 72: Behind the Scenes with Dr. Sara Gottfried and the Brain Body Connection

Episode 72: Nocturnal Hypoglycemia & Continuous Glucose Monitoring: the amazing Dr. Sara Gottfried & advanced metabolic monitoring

By far, my most wide-ranging conversation to date with my friend and colleague Dr. Sara Gottfried as we dive into her experience using a continuous glucose monitor and addressing fairly severe nocturnal hypoglycemia, to addictions and genetics, taming the dopamine-deprived COMTer, and lots of women’s health. Sara is an open book in such a lovely, inspiring way. How would a concussion lead to brain-body? (ok, there’s an obvious connection in that title, haha) but get all of the backgrounds in our convo.

Cornerstone Interventions for GERD with Victoria Albina

Episode 71: Sponsored | Cornerstone Interventions for GERD with Victoria Albina

Take a second and think about this: what clinical presentation would prompt you to prescribe cognitive behavioral coaching, breathwork or meditation? Did GERD make your list? Along with gentle, but powerful botanicals and nutraceuticals (IT’s Motility Agitator, DGL Chewables, Heartburn Advantage), these are cornerstone interventions for GERD in the practice of Victoria Albina, NP, MPH.

Improving Perinatal and Trans-Generational Health with Functional Medicine

Episode 70: Improving Perinatal and Trans-Generational Health with Functional Medicine

Some of the most extraordinary work happening in medicine right now comes from the GrowBaby team of Leslie Stone, MD and her daughter, Emily Rydbom, CNS. In their mostly Medicaid model, they’ve adopted a systems approach to pregnancy, and thereby doing so, have remarkably improved outcomes. Their rates of autism, eczema, ADHD, premature labor, gestational diabetes and pregnancy-induced hypertension fall well, well below national averages.

Episode 69: Sponsored | Telomere Integrity: What Clinicians Need to Know with Dr. Joseph Raffaele

Are you thinking about age management with your patients these days? I am. And I’m thinking about it regarding myself, quite frankly. To that end, I just had a tour-de-force conversation with clinician researcher Joe Raffaele, MD. Can we halt, or even reverse, the biological aging process? There are an extraordinary number of variables to consider here, but the take-home appears to be YES.

Episode 68: What’s the deal with Lectins and Autoimmunity? with Dr. Datis Kharrazian

Episode 68: What’s the deal with Lectins and Autoimmunity? with Dr. Datis Kharrazian

If you’re practicing functional medicine, you’re aware of (and likely prescribing) the autoimmune paleo diet. You’re pulling folks off of many foods, lowering carbs, reducing or eliminating lectins (including nightshades). In my conversation with Dr. Datis Kharrazian, we talk about his impressive PhD research (under the guidance of Aristo Vojdani, PhD) in stratifying who’s at risk for lectin intolerance.

Functional Medicine Pediatrician Dr. Elisa Song on PANS/PANDAS DX and Treatment

Episode 67: Functional Medicine Pediatrician Dr. Elisa Song on PANS/PANDAS DX and Treatment

In this podcast of New Frontiers, I’m talking with Dr. Elisa Song, a functional medicine pediatrician and superb teacher. If you are practicing FxMed, you’re probably seeing more and more kids if your scope allows (even if you didn’t before). Kids need FxMed, yet there are arguably LESS pediatricians transitioning into FxMed than other disciplines.

New Hope for Fibromyalgia Patients with Erik Lundquist, MD

Episode 66: Sponsored | New Hope for Fibromyalgia Patients with Erik Lundquist, MD

Fibromyalgia is a tricky disorder to treat. Patients struggle with chronic pain and fatigue, and practitioners often struggle to find effective interventions. Dr. Erik Lundquist is pioneering research into novel treatments for fibromyalgia. In a new study, he investigates the use of specialized pro-resolving lipid mediators (SPMs) for fibromyalgia patients.

Episode 65: Bacteriophages in the Age of Antibiotic Resistance: A Conversation with Yale’s Dr. Paul Turner and Dr. Benjamin Chan

Episode 65: Bacteriophages in the Age of Antibiotic Resistance: A Conversation with Yale’s Dr. Paul Turner and Dr. Benjamin Chan

Listen to my conversation on New Frontiers with phage scientists Paul Turner and Benjamin Chan of The Paul Turner Laboratory at Yale University, get the background on all things Bacteriophages research, and hear a handful of inspiring case reports from “pond to bench to bedside” as Drs. Turner and Chan like to say.
