Fire on Ice: Inflammation resolution: By Dr David Lescheid, PhD, ND- April 14, 2020, 1:00 pm EST

Fire on Ice: Inflammation resolution: By Dr David Lescheid, PhD, ND- April 14, 2020, 1:00 pm EST

Advances in systems science, including high throughput ‘omics’ technologies and bioinformatics, have contributed to a radically new understanding of inflammation. For example, it is now recognized that acute inflammation does not end passively but is actively controlled by a complex network of signaling molecules that become most prevalent during a second phase of inflammation named inflammation resolution. The most well characterized signaling molecules controlling inflammation resolution are derivatives of n-3 and n-6 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) and are named specialized pro-resolving lipid mediators (SPMs). SPMs are found in low concentrations throughout the body as a superfamily of structurally related molecules...

Laboratory Blood Markers to Track Health: By Dr Carissa Doherty

Laboratory Blood Markers to Track Health: By Dr Carissa Doherty

Heath markers are important tools in the assessment of clinical practice. Naturopathic doctors are trained to assess patients with a baseline, initiate a protocol to optimize health or treat a symptom and then reassess the protocol. Health markers have been found in the research about frailty. Frailty is a complex idea that includes a decline in biological function that will lead to deterioration of physiological function, a decline in the ability to respond to stress and an associated increase in vulnerability.  Frailty indexes have been postulated for many years using data from people and then seeing how that data changes though...

Update on the Health Benefits of EPA/DHA Omega-3 Fatty Acids and Personalized Testing: By Dr Bruce Holub

Update on the Health Benefits of EPA/DHA Omega-3 Fatty Acids and Personalized Testing: By Dr Bruce Holub

March 10, 2020 1:00 – 2:00 pm EST Extensive studies from various countries have indicated that very low dietary intakes of the long-chain omega-3 fatty acids as EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) plus DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) contribute to sub-optimal health outcomes and premature chronic disease throughout the human life cycle. The generally low intakes of EPA/DHA are primarily due to the low consumption of fish/seafood, a major dietary source of these important omega-3 fatty acids. Supplementation with EPA/DHA via numerous well-controlled human/clinical trials beginning in pregnancy and throughout the life span into old age have demonstrated a wide range of benefits to...

St John’s Wort Extract May Help Manage Postmenopausal Symptoms and Depression: By Dr Peter Alphonse, PhD

St John’s Wort Extract May Help Manage Postmenopausal Symptoms and Depression: By Dr Peter Alphonse, PhD

Mood imbalance and associated disorders have become increasingly common worldwide. Especially, substantial decline in the quality of life and increased susceptibility to psychological problems is usually observed during peri‑ and postmenopause. Hypericum perforatum (St John’s wort) is a well-known botanical for its mood enhancing activity exerted by various bioactive components present in it. This recent double-blind placebo controlled randomized study has evaluated the effects of St John’s wort extract on hot flashes, menopausal symptoms, and depression in 80 postmenopausal women. The researchers randomized postmenopausal women aged 45–60 years in two groups to receive either tablets containing 270–330 μg of St John’s wort (treatment...

New Clinical Study Reaffirms the Benefits of Natural Eggshell Membrane (NEM®) for Osteoarthritis: By Dr. Peter Alphonse, PhD, CFS

New Clinical Study Reaffirms the Benefits of Natural Eggshell Membrane (NEM®) for Osteoarthritis: By Dr. Peter Alphonse, PhD, CFS

Natural eggshell membrane (NEM®) is a supplement that is derived from hen eggshell membrane. It contains naturally occurring glycosaminoglycans (GAGs), glucosamine, chondroitin, hyaluronic acid, and proteins, that are useful for maintaining healthy articular cartilage and surrounding synovium and connective tissue. Studies have demonstrated that NEM® can improve symptoms of pain and stiffness associated with osteoarthritis (OA) within 7–10 days of starting supplementation. A very recent independent, multicenter, randomised double-blind placebo-controlled study corroborates these previous findings. The study was conducted across 8 different university medical centres and a total of 166 patients (male, 32; females, 134; age ≥ 40 years) with...

EFFECT OF LUTEIN AND ZEAXANTHIN ON AGE RELATED MACULAR DEGENERATION (AMD): By Dr. Venket Rao, PhD, Professor Emeritus

EFFECT OF LUTEIN AND ZEAXANTHIN ON AGE RELATED MACULAR DEGENERATION (AMD): By Dr. Venket Rao, PhD, Professor Emeritus

There is convincing scientific evidence to support the association between oxidative stress and chronic diseases including cancer, cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, osteoporosis, and macular diseases. During the course of the last two decades, there has been great interest in the use of antioxidants in the prevention and management of chronic diseases. Dietary guidelines around the globe have recommended increased consumption of plant foods including fruits and vegetables to reduce their risk. Fruits and vegetables are good sources of several beneficial phytochemicals. Antioxidant phytochemicals, in particular, constitute an important component of plant phytochemicals. Carotenoids are among the most important antioxidant phytochemicals present...

Two Nutrients for the Aging Brain: Dr. Tori Hudson, ND.

Two Nutrients for the Aging Brain: Dr. Tori Hudson, ND.

Botanicals and nutraceuticals could have a potential role in slowing progression of cognitive impairment and/or dementia including Alzheimer’s disease, improving cognition and memory, and improve behavior in those with dementia.  Alzheimer’s disease accounts for 60-80% of all dementias, and is one of the most frightening, life altering and deadly diseases of our time.  Not all Alzheimer’s disease is in the elderly and over 200,000 U.S. adults have early onset (< 65 y) disease.  There is no cure at this time.  Any role of botanical and nutraceuticals for risk reduction, prevention, and disease alteration must be considered. Mild cognitive impairment involves problems...
