Check out Dr. Gina talking about all things health with Ron and Lisa!
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.
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.
“My experience with Dr. Gina was 5 star. She had studied the entire 16 page questionnaire I filled out in advance of our first visit, and based on that and her background, already knew much about my physical, emotional, mental and dare I say, spiritual health. I’ve been to many ND’s over the years, the naturopathic principles resonate with me. Dr. Gina was professional, science based, yet what impressed me the most was her intuition and perceptive “read” of my entire being. While several health issues precipitated my visits, what I learned was how deeply our mental, emotional and spiritual health affect the physical-and how empowering that realization was and is.
Truly I can say my experience with Dr. Gina was life changing, and the healing of all of those four has been permanent.
I was also quite impressed with her detecting that my thyroid was “off” although the usual tests did not reveal this. We treated that based on her understanding of other symptoms often overlooked by other doctors (not only MD’s, other ND’s as well). At that time she was also quite active in legislation to legitimize ND’s as primary care physicians, and offered limited office hours.
I felt and feel very fortunate I was able to be seen and treated by her.”
Thank you JD!

Good health is priceless. Who doesn’t want to live to a ripe old age feeling vibrant, engaged and relevant? And guess what? The odds are in your favor. Statistics show that the population is not only living longer, but staying more active and vital well into their 80s, 90s and even 100s! So you are not alone in your quest for well-being.
Staying healthy, whatever your age, depends on a lot of different things—the kinds of food and chemicals you ingest, the amount of exercise you get, your attitude, and other influencers. In the center of all this is YOU. Your body, mind and spirit—everything that is uniquely you—is impacted each and every day by the choices you make and steps you take.
What is Your Health Worth?
Modern medicine is, fortunately, becoming more of a partner in your wellness and less of a mere band-aide for symptoms. Rather than solely providing sick care, it is transforming into a more preventive, proactive and participatory collaboration. The expanding arena of information technology is driving other changes too. Telemedicine, the cloud, smart devices and artificial intelligence are already revolutionizing diagnostics and treatment, as well as the future role of doctors, hospitals and pharmaceutical companies. These extraordinary changes mean that, down the road, you will enjoy greater control over your aging process.
In the meantime, be sure to invest in your health! Obviously, you want to eat a healthy diet, exercise, keep your brain active and maintain a spiritual practice. But, did you know that the right kind of hormone replacement can also be a really key investment in your present and future? Despite what you may have heard there is abundant research dating back to the 1940s to support the many health benefits of properly administered BHRT.

Eating too much is often more than just an issue of willpower. There are a lot of reasons for overeating, many of which scientists now say trace back to brain chemistry and hormonal imbalance. Click here to learn more.
