So-called "long Covid" is turning out to be a devastating condition for an incredibly large number of individuals around the world. It's been estimated that as many as 200 million people globally are suffering from this condition. And as many as 30 percent of Covid-19 survivors still experience symptoms long after their acute illness has passed, with cognitive and mental health problems especially prominent.    From the publisher of Clearing the Fog: For long haulers, this struggle with...

I'll never forget back in medical school that we were told that the brain was "terminally differentiated.” This means that brain cells were what they were, and could never be regenerated. As such, when a person had a stroke or brain injury, that was pretty much the end. There would be no improvement. That understanding stands in stark contrast to what we have observed. Clearly, stroke patient can and do improve. And, it turns out, that this improvement can be enhanced with a type of therapy...

That various microbes in the digestive system affect our health is certainly not news. However, this discussion is typically in the context of the various microbes that live in the gut. Actually, we technically need to begin this understanding at the level of the mouth. And, unfortunately, the idea that our oral microbes are influencing our health has not really gotten a lot of attention. As it turns out the state of health, diversity and function of the microbes living within the mouth are...

What underlies the war on fat? It’s big business, wanting us all to eat more refined carbs and sugar to replace the fat calories that we’ve been instructed to reduce. And I can think of no one who has done more to open our eyes to this ongoing travesty than Nina Teicholz. Here’s more about her from her website:   Nina Teicholz is an investigative science journalist and leader in nutrition reporting who is challenging the conventional wisdom on dietary fat–particularly, whether saturated fat...

As many of you may know, we live in Southwest Florida. And yes, we did experience the devastating effects of the recent hurricane. One of the things that has become an important focus of attention for many people living in this area has been remediating their homes as it relates to the possibility or even the presence of mold.    That said, I recently purchased a book,The Mold Medic, by Michael Rubino, to learn more about the whole notion of mold remediation, testing, and many more issues...

We've had so many discussions that's far about the importance of dietary fat for health and longevity. But to be clear, the type of fat we consume is of incredible importance. These days our diets seem to be loaded with vegetable oils and seed oils, and as we will learn, these are generally quite threatening to our health. In fact vegetable oils are only recently introduced into human nutrition with global production increasing 1600% since the early 1900s.   There is a strong correlation...

There’s so much information being promulgated these days seemingly focused on the notion of “anti-aging.”   Unfortunately, so much of this information focuses on techniques to allow us to basically appear younger.   But we are now at a level of understanding as it relates to the process of aging where we can indeed intervene to slow or even reverse the process. So, while the clock of our chronological time continues to move forward, our biological age meaning the health and functionality of...

Maybe we have it all wrong. Maybe we are overdoing it, especially as it relates to things like exercise. Should we tap into the “power of laziness?”   In Dave Asprey's new book, SMARTER NOT HARDER: The Biohacker's Guide to Getting the Body and Mind you Want, Asprey makes a compelling point that indeed less may be more. He describes how we live in a time where we finally have such a level of understanding of human physiology that we are indeed able to hack into ancient pathways to bring...

Today we will spend time with Dr. Jason Fung author of the book The Obesity Code. This is a landmark book that powerfully lays out why we are continuing to gain weight. It dispels the notion that dietary fat threatens to make us gain weight as well as the unfounded idea of calories in versus calories out as an explanation for why we gain weight.   Dr. Fung...

Melatonin has taken center-stage in terms of interest from both the scientific community as well as the general population. And there are really good reasons for all this attention. Recently, with the Covid pandemic, melatonin has been looked upon as a way of "boosting the immune system." We've looked at melatonin for many years as a sleep aid and as a way of dealing with jet lag. We know that melatonin has antioxidant properties and even anti-inflammatory activity as well.   But, all of...
