when you thought the microbiome couldn’t get any weirder, investigators at
Stanford University have discovered a whole new dimension in the microbial
universe: a category of distinct, self-replicating RNA sequences in and among bacteria
of the human gut and oral microbiomes.
“Obelisks” owing to their circular rod-like structures, these peculiar bits of
genetic information are unlike any genomic sequences in the known viral,
bacterial, fungal, or animal worlds.
discovering Obelisks, Nobel prize-winning geneticist Andrew Fire and his team believe they’ve opened an entirely new frontier in
The Long Covid nutritional protocol developed by the 10-member practitioner working group under the aegis of OvationLab and ANDHealth, is divided into two parts—Foundational Supplements aimed at improving overall health, and Specialty Supplements focused on the five main drivers of Long Covid: ACE2-mediated tissue damage; viral persistence; chronic inflammation; mitochondrial dysfunction; and microbiome/dysbiosis. The working […]
Imagine if there were a drug that could reduce risk of cancer and cardiovascular disease by roughly 40%, without any adverse effects. Even better, people would only need to take it 2 or 3 times per week to obtain these preventive benefits. It turns out there is such a thing. It’s called broccoli. People who […]
Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and Osteoporosis are two of
the most common conditions that integrative practitioners see among their
patients. These disorders are actually related.
The common factor? Bone Morphogenic Proteins (BMPs)—a group
of cytokines that play important roles in bone and joint homeostasis as well as
in GI mucosal integrity.
In this free webinar, Cynthia Worden, DO, will explore the connections
between IBS and Osteoporosis, and share new insights into the dual role of Bone
Morphogenic Proteins in supporting patients with GI and bone health issues.
She’ll also describe her clinical experience with Ostinol®–the
only BMP-complex available for oral supplementation.
During this webinar, you’ll learn about:
relationship between IBS and Osteoporosis—and the rising rates of both
The discovery of BMPs, their
structure, and their function within Demineralized Bone Matrix
Mechanisms of action and
observed clinical impact of BMPs
The practical benefits of
BMPs in supporting patients with IBS and Osteoporosis
Case studies & clinical
experience with Cyplexinol®

Professions Education, and a Doctorate in Osteopathy. Dr. Worden completed her Internship and
Osteopathic Family Medicine residency training at Downey Regional Medical
Following her training, she practiced
Integrative Family Medicine at Creekside Family Practice in Portland, OR, for
10 years. After discovering functional
medicine, Dr. Worden realized it held many of the answers to her patient’s
chronic medical conditions. She became a Certified Practitioner with the
Institute for Functional Medicine (IFMCP) in 2016, after which she founded
Bloom Functional Medicine in 2018.
who practice functional medicine, Dr. Worden has faced her own health issues:
Hashimoto’s and Crohn’s disease. Consequently, she has first-hand
knowledge of how these conditions affect overall health and well-being. In her
free time, she loves to spend time with her family and friends, and to continue
her learning. She loves to cook, read, kayak, ski, hike, and travel.
