Video: Gut Microbiota: The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly

In this video Dr. Jeffrey Bland discusses recent research into the gut microbiome. This research illustrates the systemic effects of intestinal composition on drug response, and inflammatory and immune response. Some of the research cited includes work done by the Cleveland Clinic showing certain gut microbiota may convert animal products consumed in the diet into secondary metabolites that are possibly heart-disease inducing (“the Bad”). However, research out of Europe appears to demonstrate particular gut flora may enhance the effects of chemotherapy drugs, improving efficacy (the “Good”).

Working Up the Toxic Patient: Practical Intervention and Treatment Strategies

by Peter Bennett, ND, RAc, DHANP

Toxin exposure is hard to detect and the effects are almost impossible to predict with certainty. Toxicity is a highly individual situation based largely on genetics and the strength of the toxic exposure(s). It is the author’s experience that we know very little about how the human system responds to multiple interacting toxins; and yet, toxic exposure is a common experience even for “healthy” individuals. read more…
