Clearing Psoriasis With High-Dose Vitamin D

By Erik Goldman

A small but compelling case series published last year suggests that mega-doses of vitamin D can yield dramatic improvement in the severity of longstanding psoriasis. And by “mega,” we mean doses as high as 60,000 IU per day. Renu Mahtani, a physician at the Autoimmunity Treatment Centre, Pune, India, together with Pradeep M.K. Nair of […]

Longevity in 8,000 Steps

By August West, Contributing Writer

If you want to help your patients extend their life expectancies, tell them to take a hike! People who walk at least 8,000 steps per day for two or more days each week have significantly lower all-cause cardiovascular mortality rates 10 years later. That’s the conclusion of an in-depth analysis of accelerometer data from 3,101 […]

Dispelling the Mythology Of Low Midlife Metabolism

By Erik Goldman

It’s a common clinical scenario: A middle-aged patient comes in, saying something like, “I used to be so thin and now I’m not. I exercise as much as I did when I was younger, and I eat the same. But I keep gaining weight. I just can’t keep it off. It must be my metabolism.” […]

Regenerative Therapies & Musculoskeletal Regenerative Nutrition

By Erik Goldman

Regenerative therapies such as Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) injections & Prolotherapy stimulate the body’s ability to stabilize inflammatory processes and generate new tissue within the musculoskeletal system. In this free webinar, regenerative medicine expert Dustin Moffitt, ND, will explore how a nutraceutical called Ostinol®–a growth factor complex patented for osteoinductive properties–can be used support regenerative treatment […]

Krill Oil Improves Arthritic Knee Pain in Large Australian Study

By Kristen Schepker

Fish oil is a commonly recommended holistic treatment for joint pain. Does krill oil — a related supplement with strong anti-inflammatory properties — impart similar benefits? The answer is “Yes,” according to researchers at the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO), Australia’s national science agency.   A large CSIRO study of a commercially available […]

The Biochemistry of Longevity: How to Supplement for Age Optimization

By Erik Goldman

Cumulative research in the area of longevity points to a handful of key biochemical pathways that regulate the aging process, and influence the level of health people maintain as they age. These lines of research also show how targeted plant compounds and nutraceuticals that can positively influence these pathways.  In this free webinar, Dr. Christopher […]

Antibiotics at the Crossroads

By Erik Goldman

Antibiotics can sometimes be almost miraculous in their clinical impact. Over the last 70 years, since their introduction into routine medical practice, they’ve saved countless lives. But in many cases the benefits are much less dramatic or apparent. Further, there is increasing evidence that routine use of antibiotics can have long-term detrimental effects on human […]

Environmental Medicine 101: Practical Guidance for Leveraging Environmental Medicine in Your Practice

By Erik Goldman

Environmental toxins are ubiquitous, and a rapidly growing body of evidence confirms that they are adversely affecting our health and longevity in myriad ways. Polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), bisphenol A (BPA), arsenic, lead and mercury are just a few from among the thousands of environmental toxins to which we are routinely exposed.

But research indicates that sleep tracking devices can actually reinforce some users’ sleep-related stress, making peaceful slumber even harder to attain. Sleep Aids Gain […]

Building Youthful NAD+ Power with Precursors, Sirtuin-Activating Compounds & Methylation Support

By Erik Goldman

The depletion of Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide (NAD+) over time has emerged as a central driver of much of the degenerative decline associated with aging. Depletion of NAD+ can negatively impact a multitude of core biochemical functions that may influence healthspan. Because NAD+ levels steadily drop with age, the repletion of this vital metabolic cofactor has […]
