The Magic of Intermittent Fasting

Intermittent fasting can promote diversity of gut bacteria, which can lead to positive brain/mood changes and better sugar balancing.

But what exactly is intermittent fasting and how does it work to improve gut health?

Yes, it is true. Similarly, to many “new ideas” in modern day, intermittent fasting is not new. What is new today being why people chose to do it.

Is Your Body a Machine, or A Garden?

Is Your Body a Machine, or A Garden?

By Danél Lombard, MPT, MA, E-RYT

Have you ever had an unexplainable ache or pain that just wouldn’t budge? You went to the doctor, physical therapist, or chiropractor, and they explained to you precisely why you were having this pain from a structural viewpoint. They also explained to you exactly how and why it would get better with their treatments. And it all made perfect sense. Except, it didn’t work. Relief would be short term or non-existent. You experienced frustration, ...

How does the testosterone gel work?

How does the testosterone gel work?

Dr. Rachael Ross

If you’ve been on testosterone supplementation for more than five years, you know how it feels to have your testosterone appear to just stop working. 

For my patients, the same often runs true. We place them on testosterone, and they feel great. They go to the gym and lift more, they’re in a better mood, they have better sex, their sex drive comes back, and they lose weight. It is almost like a magic button was pressed. ...

Unbalanced Hormones and Gallstone Prevention

Unbalanced Hormones and Gallstone Prevention

Edison de Mello, MD, PhD

It’s estimated that millions of Americans have gallstones. Studies have shown that women are twice as likely as men to form cholesterol gallstones. This gender difference begins in puberty and continues through the childbearing years, highlighting the importance of female sex hormones. Pregnancy, birth control pills, and the natural fluctuations of the menstrual cycle can cause a slowing down of the contractions of the gallbladder, causing bile to sit longer than usual. 

A significant number of ...

What Successful COVID-19 Vaccine Trials Look Like

By Edison de Mello, MD, PhD

Testing for the safety and efficacy of vaccines can be a daunting, expensive, and time-consuming task. That is why we usually only hear about a particular vaccine in the news when the trials have been completed and safety and scientific evidence are presented for final approval. 

However, the relentless interest in a COVID-19 effective vaccine has consumed the airwaves and our psyches for the last nine months. No matter which way we turn, we find ...

Get Your Flu Shot!

Get Your Flu Shot!

Edison de Mello, MD, PhD

I have always steered away from the debate on vaccines, but not this year. As an integrative physician and the head of a well-respected integrative clinic,  I never thought I would make a recommendation so strongly in my many years of practice. 

It seems so long ago, but when the first wave of the coronavirus hit in March, frontline healthcare workers, and the healthcare system were immensely overwhelmed. PPE was understocked and unavailable, vacant beds were ...

Covid 19 Anxiety

By Edison de Mello, MD, PhD

Your heart races, you feel the panic, sometimes it impacts your sleep, you are easily irritated, and it may even hit harder when it’s time to leave the house. It’s a feeling of fear or apprehension about what’s yet to come.

The current COVID-19 epidemic has been terrifying in multiple ways. Feelings of fear, anxiety, sadness, and uncertainty have consumed most of us, throwing into question what we knew as “our normal ways of living”. ...

COVID-19 Treatment Progress

COVID-19 Treatment Progress

Bren Boston, MD

The scientific world is feverishly working to understand and treat the disease COVID-19, which stands for coronavirus disease 2019.  The virus that causes this disease is called severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2).  The SARS-CoV-2 virus uses ACE2 receptors on the surface of cells as an entry route in many of our organs, not just lungs.  The major morbidity and mortality from COVID-19 is due to an acute viral inflammatory pneumonia that evolves to acute respiratory distress syndrome.  The most ...
