In recent years, mast cell diseases have become a hot topic in functional medicine and Dr. Theoharis Theoharides has been at the forefront of the research on mast cells. He was the first to show that mast cells are involved in a wide range of allergic reactions and inflammatory conditions, including allergies, asthma, eczema, psoriasis, migraines, multiple sclerosis.
In today’s episode of New Frontiers in Functional Medicine, Dr. Fitzgerald talks with Dr. Corey Schuler about taking a functional approach to helping ease depression and anxiety.
In today’s podcast, I’m talking with long time integrative medical clinician and anti-aging expert Lynne Mielke, MD about her approach to bioidentical hormones and why the Precision Analytical DUTCH is her go-to test for assessing biHRT response.
Today, diabetes and prediabetes are a global epidemic. Estimates suggest that one in three people are diabetic or prediabetic. In this podcast, Dr. Fitzgerald talks to Dr. Mona Morstein, author of Master Your Diabetes, about the key interventions that can help patients prevent, treat, and reverse diabetes.
One of my most inspiring conversations to date, Dr. Sinatra is, as you know, a pioneer in the field of integrative cardiology. Hear about his remarkable, very early transition to integrative cardiology, including pivotal encounters with patients and scientists that shaped his thinking; his gutsy, hospital grand rounds presentations on the use of CoQ10 for heart failure patients
Episode 46: Endotoxemia: The Underlying Reason Most of Your Patients Need Immunoglobulins with Dr. Jill Carnahan
In my podcast with Dr. Jill Carnahan this month, she unleashes a torrent of compelling science and clinical savvy on all things endotoxemia. From heart disease and diabetes to autoimmunity (genetic or acquired) and mast cell activation, Dr. Carnahan is clear that pathological intestinal permeability (she discusses testing, but at this point in her career believes most everyone who sees her with chronic disease has IP) drives inflammation by allowing excess microbial endotoxins- primarily as lipopolysaccharide (LPS) – to enter circulation.
Dr. Fitzgerald talks to Jessica Ortner, author of The Tapping Solution for Weight Loss & Body Confidence, about how tapping could help patients in a functional-medicine clinic setting. And, together, they walk step-by-step through a round of tapping so listeners can hear how it’s done (and follow along).
After suffering through a lengthy Lyme infection himself (with classic presentation), which initially responded to antibiotics but didn’t resolve the infection, Dr. Darin Ingels went on a years-long quest to recover, returning to naturopathic principles and discovering essential less-used protocols.
In recent years, interest in fasting – and in diets that offer some of the same benefits as fasting – has surged. Dr. Valter Longo was ahead of the curve: he has been studying the secrets to longevity, including fasting and fasting-like diets, for over 20 years.
Food Source Phytocannabinoids: Hemp and Beyond. Yes, hemp & marijuana are major providers of cannabinoids, and in the FxMed space, we are extremely excited about this potent family of bioactive molecules. In particular, we are looking at CBD for indications ranging from pain to mood, inflammation, memory and more. Turns out the endocannabinoid system (ECS) extends body-wide, and similarly, phytocannabinoid sources extend far beyond hemp and marijuana.
