Improving Clinical Outcomes with Paraprobiotics

By Erik Goldman

Paraprobiotics could be just what your patients need for a better life. Pre- and probiotics have become mainstream solutions for improved overall wellbeing, but research has revealed that paraprobiotics–heat-killed probiotic strains–can also have very specific benefits. Paraprobiotics also deliver the added advantage of a longer shelf-life without the need for refrigeration. In this free webinar, […]

Food-Induced Autoimmunity: Tips for Taming Immune System Anarchy

By Erik Goldman

Chronic systemic inflammation and autoimmune reactions underlying many common metabolic, digestive, respiratory, and musculoskeletal disorders. Delayed type food allergies and sensitivities are major drivers of inflammation. Left unchecked, allergies and sensitivities can lead to immune system “anarchy.” The challenge for clinicians is that sensitivity patterns are highly individualized, and many common foods which are not […]

The Aging Brain: Evidence-Based Interventions for Brain Health

By Erik Goldman

Age-associated cognitive decline is one of the nation’s most pressing health issues. Every day in the US, roughly 10,000 people reach their 65th birthdays. People over 65 years of age now represent almost 15% of the total population. Octogenarians are the fastest growing age bracket. As these trends continue, the need for effective clinical strategies […]

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 […]

A Revolution in CoQ10: Advancing Energetics through Cellular Metabolite Optimization

By Erik Goldman

Co-enzyme Q10 is among the most widely purchased dietary supplements worldwide. Yet many people who take it don’t get the optimal benefits they seek from this important metabolic cofactor.  New research suggests that Geranylgeraniol (GG), a naturally-occurring substance in the seeds of the Annatto plant (Bixa Orellana), can increase the body’s natural production of CoQ10, […]

Enhancing Fertility with Functional Medicine: Insights from the Peer-Review Literature

By Erik Goldman

Approximately 1 in 8 every couples in the US faces fertility challenges. And that’s a conservative estimate. As functional medicine practitioners, we could easily postulate that optimal fertility is even more fleeting for many more people, as are optimal maternal and neonatal health outcomes. Humans today face a daunting moment. In the industrialized world, fertility […]

Mood by Microbe: Stress Response and the Gut-Brain Axis

By Erik Goldman

Multiple converging lines of evidence have shown that the primary cause of chronic systemic inflammation may be the dysfunction of the gut-brain axis. In this presentation, renowned integrative psychiatrist, David Scheiderer, MD, reviews the links between dysbiosis, meta-inflammation, and various psychiatric conditions. Dr. Scheiderer discusses the impact of medications, alcohol, diet, and lifestyle on the […]

The Role of Micronutrients & Probiotics in Immune Health for Children

By Erik Goldman

The immune system is an elegant and complex set of cells, proteins, and tissues designed to protect our bodies from infections, both minor and life-threatening. Both the innate and acquired immune systems are dependent upon healthy nutrition, a healthy gut microbiome, adequate rest, and management of stress. The transfer of maternal microbiota is very closely linked to a […]

Maintaining Resilience by Supporting Healthy Mitochondrial Function

By Erik Goldman

In recent years, researchers and medical practitioners alike have taken interest in a particular molecule known to be the master regulator of cellular metabolism — nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+). NAD+ is a ubiquitous coenzyme involved in hundreds of metabolic processes, including: mitochondrial energy production, glycolysis, and DNA synthesis and repair. It also plays a vital […]

‘Tis the Season to be Mighty: Maintaining Resilience by Supporting Healthy Mitochondrial Function

By Erik Goldman

Though our celebrations may look a little different this year, many people will still uphold the holiday habits of over-consuming alcoholic drinks and comfort foods, and becoming more sedentary and less active. Though enjoyable, these lifestyle shifts–along with the return of the cold weather– can raise metabolic stress, perturb metabolic balance, add to allostatic load, […]
