Excited to see the start of a new podcast series from @FunctionalForum exploring a new more feminine perspective on medicine (empowerment, community, intuition) compared to the old, more patriarchal perspective (force, domination, mechanistic).
Evolution of Medicine is thrilled to announce a new series of podcasts for February and March 2016 called “Leaders of the kNEW School”. Over the last two...

Yes. Melatonin is a hormone, and hormones are potent. Supplemental melatonin is helpful in adults (especially older adults) because melatonin levels decline with age, but melatonin deficiency is unlikely in children.
Sleep researchers at the University of Adelaide are warning doctors and parents not to provide the drug melatonin to children to help control their sleep problems.

Want to dive a bit deeper into epigenetics? Here, I discuss environmental influences that affect methylation beyond your diet — with Dr. Ben Lynch.

As a potential, or expecting mother, you're in a unique position to influence your future child's health — for life. No pressure. But, good reason to consider all the elements of your 'exposome’ — not only your diet, but toxins in your environment, your sleep, activity level and stress — even outside of war zones.
Children from war-torn countries are affected by trauma even before they are born, reports a new study from "the worst place in the world" to be a woman.

It's important we have a deeper understanding of our food, of nature, and of our health. Here's a good example: Did you know the bananas we eat were genetically engineered to be sweet and seedless? Some might ask, how is that different from the GMO foods that are so controversial? Well, as the video points out toward the end, what we usually mean when we talk about the controversial GMO foods is genetic modification that involves the transfer of genes from one species of plant or animal to another, using techniques that can cause mutations in the genome. That is different than breeding out certain traits within a single species of plant, like a banana. Genetic modifications to enhance natural characteristics in the food is different from modification designed to give the food qualities it would never otherwise have — like immunity to chemical pesticides.

In the future, we may talk about balancing our microbiota as something as common for maintaining health as getting a good night's sleep, or eating healthy food.

Insights into the gut microbiome in recent years have greatly accelerated our understanding of the role the gastrointestinal tract has in human health, well-being and disease outcomes.

BPA’s supposedly benign replacement, Bisphenol S, may not be so safe, according to a study published Tuesday in the journal Endocrinology.
Scientists find that a supposedly safe alternative to BPA in plastic products has a disturbing impact on fish.

If you are serious about your health, here's a word you should get to know: EXPOSOME

The “exposome” is a concept originally proposed by Dr. Christopher Wild in 2005. It refers to the sum of all non-genetic exposures in an individual lifetime, starting from the moment of conception. It encompasses everything from the food we eat, to the water we drink, to the air we breathe, to the social interactions we have, to the lifestyle choices we make, to the health of our parents at the time of our conception.

As I move into my new house, I find myself, once again, battling mold issues. So, I thought I'd pull back up this past podcast I did with Dr. Shoemaker from survivingmold.com.
It is a pretty fascinating interview. You may be dealing with mold and not realize it.

I'm a health detective. I help people with chronic, complex illnesses who haven't been able to find help anywhere else. I'm a licensed acupuncturist by trade, but I specialize in what I call "investigative medicine". I use modern lab testing and detailed questionnaires to determine the underlying cause of health problems (rather than just suppressing symptoms), and supplements, herbs and nutritional therapy to treat them.

Very uninformed.. I'm concerned that you will be providing harmful information that will hurt the community. Very disconcerting that you would write about nutrition with no training and referencing other blogs instead of peer-reviewed and published studies.
