CME MICROBIOME Questions & Answers

SUMMARY CME MICROBIOME Questions is where the rubber meets the road!  I learn what you really take away from the evidence packed Introduction to Microbiome presentation!!!  Not only was it a great turnout for the CME MICROBIOME, DISEASE, THERAPEUTICS, NUTRITION held OCT 25, 2017 in Pittsburgh, at Passavant Hospital (see this post for details), but the questions asked by these medical providers were spot on! Read below for some of the Q&A with focus on:  What to do if on the “Avoid Diet”,  the MIND Diet and Dementia Prevention, fermented foods, and the ketogenic diet — MACS, fruit and weight!  The Therapeutic Manipulation of Microbiome slide (see below) shows how microbiome nourishingly sick the Standard America Diet is.  Some call this diet void of MACs, or microbiota-accessible carbohydrates, leaving the microbiome to nosh on our carb-rich mucus gut lining, when dietary pickings get slim.  [Desai et al 2016]  This CME crowd took their first ever pass into the anaerobic world of this newly discovered organ and saw its systemic body-wide devastating health impact when the gut lining becomes compromised (see the below slide) ⇒ The next step is to learn my bolt on presentations of diet ⇔  lifestyle changes that can move this organ to health.   ♥ If you are a business (especially self insured) looking to reduce healthcare costs, CONTACT me because microbiome information is what  your employees NEED to hear to keep (or move) them off diseasespansee my SERVICES!  If you are an individual or other group wanting to hear this information,   CONTACT me to make that happen!!!

Alzheimer’s Diet, Microbiome, & Bio-marker Predictors

SUMMARY:  Learn the latest on Alzheimer’s Diet, Microbiome, & Bio-marker Predictors.  Such is welcome news as the latest Alzheimer’s Facts & Figures show that over 5 million Americans are living with Alzheimer’s, including an estimated 200,000 under the age of 65.  

By 2050, the number of people age 65 and older with Alzheimer’s disease may nearly triple, from 5 million to as many as 16 million.  Truly, Alzheimer’s is one of the diseases most feared in my talks; it is the sixth-leading cause of death in the United States.   The estimate is that by age 64, one in 8 will have Alzheimer’s.  That rate doubles every 5 years.  So by age 70, one in 4 will have Alzheimer’s.  And by age 75, one in 2 will have Alzheimer’s.  These stats are from a 2013  interview of Dr. Thomas Wisniewski, @ time 25:30: “Brains – The Latest Research 07/01/2013 – 08:04” (NYU Langone Medical Center Audiocast, SirusXM Dr. Radio programming), who’s lab, Dr. Thomas Wisniewski’s Lab, is one of the leading Alzheimer research labs.
