Crohn’s Disease is an inflammatory bowel disease that commonly causes digestive symptoms like abdominal pain, gas, bloating, diarrhea, and appetite loss.

For Kyle, his main symptom was abdominal pain with everything he ate. He also was experiencing constipation, bloating, low energy, headaches, and low back pain that traveled down his legs.

After trying different remedies on his own and seeing no improvement, he sought the help of Dr. Joe, the Clinical Director of the Ruscio Institute for Functional Medicine.

Listen in as they discuss Kyle’s health journey and how triple therapy probiotics, abdominal massage, and the Gupta Program ultimately helped him feel better.

Though it’s often overlooked or misunderstood, there is a strong gut-thyroid connection. This may make it tricky for patients to pinpoint what’s causing their symptoms of brain fog, fatigue, gas, bloating, and anxiety.

In this podcast, I walk through the treatment of a patient of mine, Beth, whose labs showed she had hypothyroidism, but despite taking thyroid medication and trying a variety of diets like autoimmune paleo and low FODMAP, she still wasn’t feeling relief. Tune in to learn how we helped her feel better by looking at the whole picture: her labs, symptoms, health history, and her response to treatment.

When stress, chronic pain or illness, a sleep disorder, or an imbalance in gut bacteria are present, a good night’s sleep can be difficult to achieve. Knowing that sleep is imperative for our emotional and physical wellbeing, it’s crucially important to uncover what can help those experiencing poor sleep. In this podcast, I speak with neurologist Dr. Stasha Gominak about her research about the connections between gut health, vitamin intake, and sleep. Listen in now.

When Julie came into the clinic, she was doing many things right - like cutting out certain inflammatory foods and managing stress levels. However, her symptoms of diarrhea, abdominal pain, and distention were disrupting her life.

Dr. Joe Mather, medical director of The Ruscio Institute for Functional Medicine, focused on finding the root causes of her symptoms to help formulate a treatment plan and help her feel better.

Some of these treatments included eating an anti-inflammatory diet, incorporating a gut-healing supplement powder, and beginning a binder protocol to detox from mercury and mold exposure.

If you’re trying everything to heal and are still not feeling better, you may, like Julie, need to trust what your gut is telling you and dig deeper to find the root cause of your symptoms.

Watch Julie’s story and learn how the specific dietary, supplemental, and environmental changes we recommended improved her digestion and overall well-being.

Advances in epigenetics show exciting potential for helping to treat disease and slow the aging process.

Podcast guest Dr. Kara Fitzgerald has made an important contribution to this field with a new study of epigenetics and aging. Her groundbreaking clinical trial found that biological age can be reversed by more than 3 years by introducing simple diet and lifestyle modifications. In short, genetics do not necessarily determine our health destiny.

Listen to our discussion and prepare to have your assumptions about aging and disease challenged.
