  • In this lecture I will review my thoughts in terms of physical exam, laboratory and therapeutic options for various conditions I see in my office.

  • I will discuss the why’s and dosage’s of nutraceutical and botanical Rx options

  • This lecture is not meant to be inclusive but rather a primer to encourage thought and discussion as well as an aide in your own decision making process.

Allergies food
Allergies (Food)

  • R/O with laboratory testing (IgG) or Elimination/Challenge diet. This is a good time to do the BioCleanse Detox program.

  • Avoid 2+ or higher foods, Rotate others

  • Desensitise with homeopathic dilutions of allergens (Apex) or T cell balance with Sterol 117 (1-2 QD)

  • Run Digestive/Microbiol/P testing, Organix or Lactulose/Mannitol testing to assess level of gut dysbiosis, permeability and/or digestive enzyme deficiencies

Allergies food1
Allergies (Food)

  • Remove any bowel pathogens with ParaBiotic Plus (2 TID)

  • Consider reforestation of bowel: ProFlora Plus (2 BID).

    Initiate this treatment after completing ParaBiotic Plus phase.

  • Repair mucosal barrier/gut lining with: Intestinal Repair Complex (1 tsp BID-TID) or Intestinal Repair Capsules (2-3 TID)

Allergies environmental
Allergies (Environmental)

  • Seasonal?

    • Late February to Mid April? Probably Deciduous Tree Pollens

    • Mid April to Mid July? Probably Grass/Weed pollens

    • Year around? Probably dust mite or mold allergy

  • Evaluate symptomatically or allergy test with IgE serum testing or skin testing.

Allergies environmental1
Allergies (Environmental)

  • Reduce exposure (air cleaners, electrostatic precipitators, etc.)

  • Desensitise with Sterol 117 (T-cell balancing) (1-2 QD)

  • Rx: BioAllergy Plus capsules (2-4 caps TID - QID between meals)

  • Rx: Immune Balancing Complex (T cell balancing)

    (1-2 BID with food)

Adrenal insufficiency
Adrenal Insufficiency

  • Check for postural hypotension (Lying to standing blood pressure evaluation).

  • I consider it significant if the systolic pressure drops by 8 points or more.

  • Serum Sodium less than 140. My optimal is 140-142

  • Test Salivary Hormones to check for deficiency and/or circadian rhythm disturbances.

  • Fatigue after exercise and history of slow recovery. Takes 2-3 days to recover from stress, exercise, etc.
