ENCORE: Nutritional Treatment of Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis, Part 1

Dr. Melvyn Grovit specializes in the nutritional treatment of Crohn’s Disease and ulcerative colitis—especially in kids. He describes his first case, that of a 17-year-old with Crohn’s Disease who was emaciated, debilitated, suffering from uncontrollable diarrhea, subject to frequent hospitalizations for intestinal obstruction, his academic career on hold, and at serious risk of early death. The Big Reveal: that patient was Dr. Grovit himself 65 years ago! Now 82, Dr. Grovit is healthy, in full remission without the aid of drugs, and actively treating patients in his nutritional practice in White Plains, New York. What type of diet supports healing of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD)? Once healing has occurred, can you occasionally cheat? Which nutraceuticals has Dr. Grovit found helpful? Probiotics? Omega 3 fish oil? Specialized pro-resolving mediators (SPMs)? Fish peptides? Amino acids? Curcumin? What role can growth hormone (HGH) play in facilitating kids’ recovery? Why hasn’t the gastroenterology establishment embraced these methods? Dr. Grovit shares the remarkable results he’s seen in his practice, including a peer-reviewed study he’s published documenting his successes. He discusses the origins of NIBD in Kids, a non-profit devoted to promoting natural cures for pediatric IBD.

Q&A with Leyla, Part 2: Scuba Diving

I'm planning a scuba diving trip in November. Do you think they do enough to clean the regulators that go into your mouth?; I found out my 22-year-old son has Left Bundle Branch Block. What causes it and what can he do about it?; What are your thoughts on Pycnogenol and Centella Asiatica for treating atrial calcification?; Shouldn't we be concerned about any squalene that may be used in a Covid-19 vaccine? Couldn't it cause injury?; Could the numbers in my EBT scan be results of scarring from a previous surgery to repair Myxoma?

ENCORE: Are angels real? Do miracles happen? Part 1

Dr. Leo Galland, renowned clinician, educator, and best-selling author of "The Allergy Solution" (the basis for a hit PBS series) turns his attention to spiritual exploration in his new book, "Already Here: A Doctor Discovers the Truth About Heaven." The book recounts the death of his learning-disabled son, Chris, who returned as a spirit guide after a series of miraculous experiences awakened Dr. Galland to his consciousness-expanding messages. How does Already Here square with Dr. Galland’s rigorous scientific orientation? Is there an implicit lesson for parents, family members, and educators of children with challenging behaviors? For grievers? Do you have to subscribe to traditional religious beliefs to appreciate Already Here? How has Dr. Galland’s experience shaped his views of death? Has it impacted his interaction with patients? Did it undermine his confidence in the scientific method? Are there practical ways to apply Dr. Galland’s insights in our day-to-day lives?

Leyla Weighs In: Shaping our Microbiome

ENCORE: The way to a man’s heart is through his stomach—literally! Part 1

Dr. Lee Ann Chen, gastroenterologist and microbiome researcher at NYU Langone Medical Center, explains how our gut bacteria may shape cardiovascular risk. Can antibiotics make us fat? How do low levels of antibiotics in foods or water contribute to obesity? Why is “diversity” a good thing—not just for society but for our guts? Can designer probiotics lower LDL cholesterol? Do harmful intestinal bugs promote inflammation and raise C-reactive protein, a known cardio risk factor? What’s TMAO, and how do our gut bacteria modulate its effect on atherosclerosis? Are functional probiotics to prevent or treat diseases ready for prime time? What diet changes promote a healthy microbiome? Do exercise and stress reduction play a role? What’s the latest on FMT—fecal microbiota transfer?
