Pre-webinar announcements: 00:00:00 - 00:06:45 Presentation: 00:06:45 - 01:28:21 Healing gut barrier function and rebalancing the microbiota can shift metabolism to improve weight loss and reduce the incidence of diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Join Dr. Liz Lipski to find out how as she presents Diabetes, Obesity, Metabolic Syndrome and the Microbiome. Metabolic imbalances can make it difficult to lose weight. New research on blood sugar, cardiovascular health and weight management indicate that the keys to health begin in the gut! Statistics on weight loss indicate that dieting often fails. It’s good news to learn that it’s not the dieter’s fault; but rather metabolic imbalances that can be corrected.

Weight Management: Hormonal Imbalances and Nutritional Insufficiencies Worldwide obesity has more than doubled since 1980. In 2014, more than 1.9 billion adults were overweight; of these, over 600 million were obese. In the U.S. alone, more than one-third of adults (78.6 million) are obese. Excess body fat poses many health risks such as type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, certain types of cancer, and many other conditions. Historically, dietary and lifestyle changes (such as eating fewer calories and increasing exercise) have been recommended to those with weight management challenges. As shown by the increased prevalence of overweight and obese individuals, these recommendations have not had the desired long-term success. An often overlooked factor is the influence of metabolic and hormonal imbalances. Obesity is now understood to be a multifaceted disease involving endocrine, inflammatory, gastrointestinal, and nutrient imbalances, and additional interventions are needed to augment conventional approaches. Specialty diagnostic testing may help identify contributing factors such as gastrointestinal dysbiosis, hormonal imbalances, and nutritional insufficiencies to allow for a personalized treatment plan for weight loss and weight loss maintenance. Presented by Melanie Dorion, N.P. Melanie Dorion is an Adult Geriatric Nurse Practitioner focusing on preventive and integrative health in teens and adults. She currently is the Functional Medicine specialist at Downtown Family Healthcare, a family practice in Charlottesville, VA, focusing on fatigue, Lyme disease, weight management and gastrointestinal health.

Katherine Pollard, PhD, visited Stanford Medical School to deliver the Computational Immunology Seminar. She discusses how her lab at the Gladstone Institutes uses big data and high-performance computing to study the human microbiome and learn how it influences health and disease. The human microbiome plays a role in processes as diverse as metabolism, immune function, and mental health. Yet despite the importance of this system, scientists are just beginning to uncover which microorganisms reside in and on our bodies and determine what functions they perform. The development of innovative technology and analytical methods has enabled researchers like Dr. Pollard to decode the complex interactions between our human cells and microbial brethren, and infer meaning from the staggering amounts of data 10 trillion organisms create. Dr. Pollard is a senior investigator at the Gladstone Institutes, director of the Gladstone Convergence Zone, and a professor of epidemiology and biostatistics at UCSF.

PPT Slides: https://www.dropbox.com/s/aob2x2sumj8wyq3/Seneff_Stephanie_052618.pptx?dl=0 I have been searching for environmental causes of autism for over a decdade, and I now believe that I have identified the key toxic environmental factors that are causal in the epidemic. The most significant factor is glyphosate, the active ingredient in the herbicide Roundup. What makes glyphosate so dangerous is that it is pervasive, cumulatively insidiously toxic, and widely believed to be nearly harmless to humans. Glyphosate collaborates with toxic components in vaccines to destroy neurons. These include, primarily, aluminum, mercury and glutamate. While glyphosate contamination in the food sets up a leaky gut barrier and leaky brain barrier, glyphosate contamination in many vaccines is ominous and likely catastrophic. In this talk, I will present the hard-core scientific evidence for the complex metabolic cascade these toxic metals and chemicals induce, beginning with disruption of gut microbes, bile acids, and digestive enzymes, and ending with a devastating neurological disability.

This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. Most of us know we should eat better, but we don’t do it. We are increasingly confused over nutrition with so many conflicting views, and we give scarce thought as to how we eat or our relationship with food. We can only bring about real change when we end this confusion and bring the joy back to food. Adopted by the nation as an honorary Aussie, Dr Joanna McMillan’s ever-growing following is the result of her high profile within the media, health and fitness industries, and through her roles as Vice President of the Australian Lifestyle Medicine Association (ALMA), Ambassador for Diabetes Australia, and Ambassador for Australian Pineapples (to name a few). As a teenager Dr Joanna discovered that the way she ate and how much she exercised significantly impacted on her energy levels, mood, self-esteem, appearance and, consequently, her outlook on life. She initially studied psychology but her love of exercise resulted in a 15-year career as a fitness instructor. Having completed a Bachelor Degree in Science with First Class Honours in Nutrition and Dietetics, Dr Joanna moved to Australia and won a scholarship to complete her PhD with The University of Sydney in 1999. Today, Dr Joanna is the founder of Get Lean, a regular on the Nine Network and the official nutritionist for TODAY. She is also the author of several books, has a weekly column in Sunday Life and a blogger for Woolworths Baby & Toddler Club. Dr Joanna is a busy working mother, a tautology that provides her with an unwavering drive to teach people how to live a healthy and nutrition-filled life – yet one that doesn’t require obsessive or unrealistic attention in order to achieve it. The philosophy of this down-to-earth Scot is simple. She believes that having a good healthy relationship with food is just as important as eating nutritious foods, and she regards food as more than the nutrients it contains; rather, it is part of our social connection, our culture and a great source of pleasure in life.

Why You Should Be Worried About Changes to the Microbiome Dr. Martin Blaser discusses his hypothesis that the overuse of antibiotics, c-sections, and antiseptics has permanently changed our microbiome and are causing an increase in modern diseases such as obesity, juvenile diabetes, and asthma. Missing Microbes: How the Overuse of Antibiotics Is Fueling Our Modern Plagues http://MartinBlaser.com A critically important and startling look at the harmful effects of overusing antibiotics, from the field's leading expert Tracing one scientist's journey toward understanding the crucial importance of the microbiome, this revolutionary book will take readers to the forefront of trail-blazing research while revealing the damage that overuse of antibiotics is doing to our health: contributing to the rise of obesity, asthma, diabetes, and certain forms of cancer. In Missing Microbes, Dr. Martin Blaser invites us into the wilds of the human microbiome where for hundreds of thousands of years bacterial and human cells have existed in a peaceful symbiosis that is responsible for the health and equilibrium of our body. Now, this invisible eden is being irrevocably damaged by some of our most revered medical advances—antibiotics—threatening the extinction of our irreplaceable microbes with terrible health consequences. Taking us into both the lab and deep into the fields where these troubling effects can be witnessed firsthand, Blaser not only provides cutting edge evidence for the adverse effects of antibiotics, he tells us what we can do to avoid even more catastrophic health problems in the future. Dr. Martin Blaser has studied the role of bacteria in human disease for over 30 years. He is the director of the Human Microbiome Program at NYU.

The N Engl J Med image of the week shows an 11-year-old girl who presented to the hospital with 3-week history of an ulcerated lesion on her cheek, unresponsive to a course of antibiotics. PCR testing of a swab specimen from the lesion was positive for orthopoxvirus DNA and cowpox virus-specific oligonucleotides. Exposure to what animal is the likely route of transmission? You are offered cows, sheep, chickens, rabbits, and cats. The effect of endovascular thrombectomy that is performed more than 6 hours after the onset of ischemic stroke is uncertain. Patients with a clinical deficit that is disproportionately severe relative to the infarct volume may benefit from late thrombectomy. Investigators enrolled patients with occlusion of the intracranial internal carotid artery or proximal middle cerebral artery who had last been known to be well 6 to 24 hours earlier and who had a mismatch between the severity of the clinical deficit and the infarct volume, with mismatch criteria defined according to age (less than 80 years or at least 80 years). Patients were randomly assigned to thrombectomy plus standard care (the thrombectomy group) or to standard care alone (the control group). The coprimary end points were the mean score for disability on the utility-weighted modified Rankin scale (which ranges from 0 [death] to 10 [no symptoms or disability]) and the rate of functional independence (a score of 0, 1, or 2 on the modified Rankin scale, which ranges from 0 to 6, with higher scores indicating more severe disability) at 90 days. Thrombectomy remained worthwhile and beat placebo. Spastic limb paralysis due to injury to a cerebral hemisphere can cause long-term disability. Neurosurgeons investigated the effect of grafting the contralateral C7 nerve from the nonparalyzed side to the paralyzed side in patients with spastic arm paralysis due to chronic cerebral injury. We randomly assigned 36 patients who had had unilateral arm paralysis for more than 5 years to undergo C7 nerve transfer plus rehabilitation (18 patients) or to undergo rehabilitation alone (18 patients). The primary outcome was the change from baseline to month 12 in the total score on the Fugl–Meyer upper-extremity scale (scores range from 0 to 66, with higher scores indicating better function). The paralyzed arm showed improved power, function, and reduced spasticity at month 12 in the surgery group, whereas there was significantly less improvement in the control group, in which patients received only physical therapy. Despite current therapies, diffuse cutaneous systemic sclerosis (scleroderma) often has a devastating outcome. Investigators compared myeloablative CD34+ selected autologous hematopoietic stem-cell transplantation with immunosuppression by means of 12 monthly infusions of cyclophosphamide in patients with scleroderma. They randomly assigned adults (18 to 69 years of age) with severe scleroderma to undergo myeloablative autologous stem-cell transplantation (36 participants) or to receive cyclophosphamide (39 participants). The primary end point was a global rank composite score comparing participants with each other on the basis of a hierarchy of disease features assessed at 54 months: death, event-free survival (survival without respiratory, renal, or cardiac failure), forced vital capacity, the score on the Disability Index. at 54 months after randomization, myeloablative CD34+ selected autologous hematopoietic stem-cell transplantation resulted in significantly better clinical outcomes than 12 months of cyclophosphamide. A N Engl J Med review is about acute pyelonephritis in adults. The second review is on favism (look it up!). The case-of-the-week concerns protracted diarrhea, weight loss, and elevated chromogranin A level. Perhaps stool osmolality would have been cheaper. In the Lancet, we review the ORBITA study. This time, I spend efforts on the great controls in this study comparing percutaneous coronary intervention in stable angina patients against control patients. The placebo effect of coronary interventions is astounding. Next we review endoscopic or surgical step-up approaches to persons with necrotizing pancreatitis. Endoscopic interventions were not inferior. The next investigators studied whether or not persons with major heart surgery (aortic valve replacement) are better operated upon in the morning or afternoon. Their cohort study suggested that afternoon is better. So they next did a randomized trial and again, afternoon was better. A genetic analysis of cardiac tissue from patients suggested that altered Rev-Erbα, a clock-gene transcription factor, could play a role. Briefly, a relevant biorhythm exists that influences myocardial ischemia-reperfusion tolerance. The Lancet reviews are about celiac disease and Chagas disease. We end with a 15-year-old boy who presents with pain in his left arm that is not relieved by aspirin or ibuprofen.
