If you’re a woman with hormonal trouble, you’re not alone. It’s estimated that 80% of women will have some form of hormonal imbalance at some point in their lives. Hormonal imbalance in women can include garden variety women’s health problems like PMS, to more serious conditions like PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome) or endometriosis.

In this article, let’s explore the symptoms of hormonal imbalance, the causes and consequences of hormonal imbalance in women, and how to restore balance.

Food sensitivity testing is one of the diagnostic tools most widely recommended by functional medicine practitioners to their patients, and it has blossomed into a lucrative industry that nets millions of dollars per year for companies that market these home testing kits to consumers.

But the science behind these tests is flawed. In this podcast, I discuss how getting to the root of food reactions relies on evidence-based trials that ultimately helps patients heal without asking them to spend thousands on faulty testing.

Other podcast highlights include a case study from an FFMR subscriber who helped a patient with known environmental exposure by applying the principles of the FFMR (and without testing).

Also featured are rapid research briefs from the FFMR plus with a look at why iron deficiency even without anemia can be a significant clinical issue requiring active treatment, and dietary interventions for treating eosinophilic esophagitis.

We speak frequently about the importance of an evidence-informed, gut-first approach for addressing chronic symptoms both inside and outside the GI tract. And the more research and clinical experience we compile, the more we find that a wide range of concerns can be improved by looking at them through the lens of gut health. 

On this podcast, I summarize clinical reviews and case studies from the June 2021 issue of the Future of Functional Medicine Clinical Newsletter that treat mold toxicity and environmental illness by addressing diet, GI health, and thyroid.

I discuss a case study of a patient with psoriatic arthritis that was resolved in a month, a review of studies highlighting the role of diet and supplements for treating IBD, and new findings about the symptomatology and treatment of Blastocystis hominis.

The Ruscio Institute uses an evidence-based clinical model as the foundation for our treatment protocols. This means not only incorporating the most current research into treatment decisions, but also applying a critical eye to research studies rather than accept their conclusions at face value.

Today’s podcast looks at studies on the possible role of autoimmunity in IBS and SIBO, whether antibody levels are a valid marker of gut dysbiosis, low FODMAP diets for IBS, and more.

Listen as I explain how we blend critical thinking with clinical research to achieve the best outcomes for our patients.

The Future of Functional Medicine Review was launched to provide clinicians with the resources and skills to help patients heal from challenging symptoms, and to help steer the field toward a more evidence-informed approach and away from excessive reliance on labs and supplements.

On today’s podcast, three clinicians join Dr. Ruscio to discuss their successes using the principles of the FFMR to treat hundreds of patients.

Listen and learn how the FFMR encourages practitioners to cultivate an internal “anti-virus software” that keeps them questioning and learning, and how clinician and citizen scientists can use the FFMR to positively and inexpensively grow their functional medicine education or clinical practice.

Stress and its associated symptoms such as impaired sleep, depression, PTSD, and lowered cognitive performance are among the most pressing mental health issues of our time. Many turn to stimulants and other substances to help them cope. 

A wearable technology developed by neuroscientists may hold answers. The Apollo Neuro, based on decades of research, uses touch therapy in the form of sound waves to deliver a gentle vibration to the skin and helps the wearer shift mood and energy level.

If you experience ongoing stomach discomfort such as burning sensations, heartburn, nausea, or peptic ulcers, or gastritis, chances are you may have a helicobacter pylori, or H. pylori, infection. H. pylori infection is a risk factor for many health conditions and shouldn’t be left untreated.

Today’s podcast gives you the rundown on H. pylori, a bacteria that can live in the stomach or digestive tract. About 10 - 20% of those infected with it will experience symptoms.
