Watch it on YouTube here Melatonin and Viruses Melatonin is a Versatile Molecule Did you know? Melatonin is such an important hormone! It is made all throughout the body in the gastrointestinal tract, retina, thymus, bone marrow, and by white blood cells called leukocytes. Melatonin is synthesized by the pineal gland in the brain. Besides regulating sleep and our relationship with light and dark, melatonin wears a lot of other hats. Melatonin is a power anti-oxidant, hormone protector and up-regulator of critical molecules like glutathione. One important emerging role for melatonin is its huge influence over our immune [...]
Research on Steroids Research is piling up that steroids can have adverse downstream issues. We used to think this was mostly from extended use, but in some of you it can occur from even using steroids for a few days. A population-based study of more than 2.6 million people found that taking corticosteroids for 14 days or less was associated with a substantially greater risk for gastrointestinal bleeding, sepsis, and heart failure, all which can occur up to 30 days after you stopped taking the steroids. Patients were tracked from 5 to 90 days before treatment for various conditions when steroids [...]
Health food tends to run in trends. At the moment coconut is king. But just as we live in a material world with two sides to everything, it appears there may be a “shadow side” to coconut oil - for some patients. You will learn Dr. Berkson’s conclusions from first hearing this at an A4M Anti-aging Gastroenterology module, where she was both a professor and student, along with “sleuthing’ the science. In this show you will learn: What is intestinal permeability and why is “Goldilocks” just right permeability critical. What is coconut fat and how is this saturated fat very [...]

H. pylori We used to think that most ulcers were causes by excess acid or stress. Now we know many ulcers (not all) are caused by an infection of a bug that loves to live inside an unhealthy stomach. This bug is called H. pylori. We think there are other ulcer causes, like daily aspirin intake (not good like docs thoughts), other bugs still being identified, and life style issues such as excess alcohol and processed foods. What's the big deal? The deal is that an infection with H. pylori increases your risk of cancer, in the stomach but also diverse [...]
