A recent study points to the connection between vitamin D3 deficiency and treatment, and Covid-19 infection. At my medical practice, we test the blood for Vitamin D3 levels in nearly every one of our patients as it is associated with inflammation, immune function and even mood.

Probiotics and a Healthy Gut Microbiome Even More Important with Covid

January 13, 2021

New research published in the journal Gut is pointing to the role the gut microbiome plays in overall immune system health but also in preventing a severe reaction to Covid-19. In my practice we use the GI Map test by Diagnostic Labs to pinpoint exactly what microorganisms are causing dysbiosis and the best approach to treating it.

Glutathione and Respiratory Health

April 27, 2020

GlutathioneGlutathione (GSH) has gained massive popularity because of its benefits that involve every organ system. Most notably, Glutathione is associated with the respiratory system and its effects on upper and lower respiratory infections.

Let’s take a look at Glutathione and its connection with respiratory health.

What is Glutathione?

Glutathione is a potent antioxidant that reduces oxidative stress by neutralizing reactive oxygen species (ROS), which are known to cause tissue damage and increase the risk of a wide range of diseases, including cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and neurocognitive illnesses. This compound is produced by the cell using three main amino acids; glutamine, glycine, and cysteine.

Glutathione is found in plants, animals, and even microbes (e.g. fungi, bacteria).

How does Glutathione help with respiratory health?

Glutathione has recently surfaced as a potential treatment for multiple respiratory conditions, including chronic diseases.  In one paper published by Evidence-Based Complementary and Alternative Medicine, scientists reviewed a large database of studies and clinical trials from reputable sources, such as Biomedical Reference Collection, MEDLINE, and Nursing and Allied Health Collection.

They concluded that Glutathione offers positive results to patients with respiratory diseases, stating that “GSH inhalation is an effective treatment for a variety of pulmonary diseases and respiratory-related conditions. Even very serious and difficult-to-treat diseases (e.g., CF, IPF) yielded benefits from this novel treatment.”

These findings suggest that even chronic diseases such as cystic fibrosis and idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis can benefit from glutathione.

Glutathione works in these cases by eradicating free radicals intracellularly, and reducing inflammation.

Another recent study found that a variety of potent antioxidants (e.g. Glutathione) could be implemented to reduce the severity and duration of viral infections.

These results suggest that glutathione may be effective in the treatment of several respiratory conditions, which is not the case for every drug out there.

Glutathione and COVID-19

COVID-19 causes acute severe respiratory distress in a small subset of patients, leading to the following symptoms:

–  Severe dyspnea (shortness of breath)
–  Myocarditis (inflammation of the heart muscle)
–  Organ failure

The pathophysiology behind this presentation is thought to be the result of a “cytokine storm syndrome.

In two case studies, experts tried the inhaled and oral forms of glutathione to treat two COVID-19 positive patients from New York.

Patients’ symptoms improved after one hour of administration, and succeeding doses gave similar results.

These findings are preliminary, but may offer a clue towards finding medicines that will work to help patients suffering from COVID-19.

Bottom line

Glutathione is a tripeptide that offers several health benefits due to its antioxidant properties.

In our medical practice I use glutathione regularly to treat patients.

Inflammation Causes Changes in your Ability to Think Clearly

February 13, 2020

An interesting article was published this week in Psychology Today that talks about how inflammation in the body not only causes depression but also alters our mood and even decision making.

About 15 years ago I began to study this link. I even purchased the domain address inflamedbrain.com because I felt that one day this information would become mainstream.

And here we are!

The approach I take to treating patients often involves recommendations that lower inflammation in the body.

The fields of psychology and even sociology will likely evolve to incorporate this new information about how to help people lead more focused and clear lives.

New Understandings about Autism

February 4, 2020

A new study published this week reveals how the prescription diuretic Bumetamide reduces the symptoms of autism.

Interestingly, the drug treats swelling and works by repairing the neurotransmitter-related “GABA switch” (excitatory-to-inhibitory GABA switch) in the brains of autistic children.

There are however side effects and potential concerns because the drug can cause dehydration and electrolyte depletion-both crucial elements in addressing a child with autism.

On the hopeful side, this study shows another link between inflammation, and complex brain and/or nervous system disorders like Autism. It may follow that by lowering inflammation in the body, neurotransmitter function can be restored in autistic children, and may explain why some kids respond to functional medicine testing and treatment for digestive, nutrient and immune related imbalances that cause systemic inflammation.

Clinically, I recommend testing to see if taking nutrients like butyrate (and not taking GABA) is a better option for resolving symptoms in autistic children who are not responding well to treatment.
