Dr. Perlmutter at the 2018 Integrative Healthcare Symposium

By Administrator

David Perlmutter, MD, is a leader among the vanguard of neurologists and cognitive health professionals who are completely rethinking everything about the etiology and the management of Alzheimer's disease and other forms of cognitive impairment. In his view, dementia is not the inevitable result of bad genes, but a predictable--and controllable--outcome of diet and lifestyle factors. He believes that in many cases Alzheimer's is reversible, and certainly preventable.

Dr. Perlmutter is about to release a new and updated 5th Anniversary edition of his smash-hit book, Grain Brain, which details the negative impact that grain-heavy diets have on cognitive function.

HPC's editor, Erik Goldman, caught up with Dr. Perlmutter at the 2018 Integrative Healthcare Symposium.

Joe Pizzorno - The Toxin Solution

By Meg Sinclair

For decades, Dr. Pizzorno has been at the forefront of a movement to build bridges between naturopathic, functional, and mainstream medicine. In recent years, his attention has been focused on the myriad ways that environmental toxins are damaging personal and public health, and on developing practical strategies to help people reduce their toxic loads.

His recent book, The Toxin Solution, presents a harrowing picture yet offers good clinical guidance on how to manage the onslaught. Consider the following:

•    94% of Americans are exposed to enough polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons to double their lifetime risk of asthma.
•    60% of US women carry loads of PCB187 sufficient to double their risk of breast cancer.
•    33% of Americans have lead levels high enough to double the risk of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS).
•    25% are exposed to enough aluminum to double Alzheimer’s risk.

Holistic Primary Care had the honor of hosting Dr. Pizzorno at our 2017 Practitioner Channel Forum. He shared his research on the role of common toxins in chronic disease and his field-tested therapeutic strategies. Watch the full-length session from HPC’s video archive:
