Kate Scarlata, MPH, RDN on The Low Fodmap Diet, IBS, Bloating, Constipation, and More
The Low Fodmap Diet is the most researched diet for Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and is estimated to help alleviate symptoms in upwards of 40-70% of IBS patients.  Not many people know more about the low fodmap diet then our guest Kate Scarlata, MPH, RDN. FODMAP is an acronym that defines foods that are composed of Fermentable Oligosaccharides (fructans and galacto oligosaccharides), Disaccharide (lactose), Monosaccharides (Fructose) AND Polyols (sugar alcohols). These carbohydrates are small chained carbohydrates that many people with IBS and related digestive disorders have a difficult time tolerating these carbohdrates and may develop symptoms of bloating, pain, constipation, or diarrhea, or a mixture of these symptoms. We dive deeply into the Low Fodmap Diet and also into other advanced conditions that mimic IBS and must be considered if you are not responding to the Low Fodmap Diet. I have show notes on my blog at this link.  Now more about our guest. Kate Scarlata, MPH, RDN, LDN is a registered, licensed dietitian with a nutrition consultation business in Medway, Massachusetts. She has 30 years experience providing nutrition consultation to patients with irritable bowel syndrome, celiac disease and inflammatory bowel disease. Ms. Scarlata is considered a global expert in the low FODMAP diet and an invited speaker to numerous conferences in the US and abroad. Kate is a New York Times Best Selling author for her co-authored book, 21 Day Tummy Diet and author of The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Eating Well with IBS and co-author of The low FODMAP Diet Step by Step. Ms. Scarlata earned her B.S. in Nutrition from Simmons College in Boston, Massachusetts and her MPH at the University of Massachusetts.

Psychobiotics and the Gut-Brain Axis with Scott Anderson
Do the bugs in your gut influence whether you are anxious, depressed, clear-headed, or distracted?  Well, it turns out quite possibly. Future depression prescriptions may be custom probiotics rather then Prozac.  I invited Scott Anderson the author of the The Psychobiotic Revolution to speak with us today about this most interesting topic. We dive into this and the gut-brain axis, how diet influences the microbiota,  fecal transplants, measuring the microbiota,  anxiety, depression, and more.   About our guest: Scott is a scientist and a science writer who was drawn from the wine country in California to work with horses in Ohio. There, Scott set up a laboratory to help develop equine prebiotics. He found that a less diverse microbiota was associated with colonic ulcers and poor performance. That ultimately led him to John Cryan and Ted Dinan, two pioneers of the gut-brain axis who found that gut microbes can affect the behavior of mice. Scott ended up writing a book with Cryan and Dinan called The Psychobiotic Revolution, from National Geographic. It is now going into the second printing. resources from the episode: Dinan, Melancholic microbes: a link between gut microbiota and depression? Tillisch study.

Microbes as a driver of Autoimmunity with Dr. Amy Proal
What is driving Autoimmunity? Is it time to turn our beliefs about autoimmune conditions around and look at what is the underlying cause?  According many researchers, including our guest Dr. Amy Proal , a key driver of autoimmunity might be microbe based.  As researchers are finding out specific microbes that turn pathogenic called "pathobionts" may be leading to a chronic inflammatory process that goes unchecked.  In this episode we dive into pathobionts, intestinal permeability, the problem with standard immunosupressive therapy, biophages, and so much more. Get ready to learn as Dr. Proal is a force . Now more about Dr. Proal. Dr. Proal is a microbiologist who studies the molecular mechanisms by which bacterial, fungal and viral pathogens dysregulate human gene expression, immunity and metabolism. Her work further examines how dysbiosis of the human microbiome and/or the human virome can contribute to chronic inflammatory disease processes. As a member of the research team at Autoimmunity Research Foundation, she has authored papers and written book chapters for organizations like the J.Craig Venter Institute and The Autoimmunity Network, and lectured at the NIH and numerous USA/international conferences. Proal graduated from Georgetown University in 2005 with a degree in biology. In 2012, she obtained a PhD in microbiology from Murdoch University in Australia. Her graduate thesis focused on “Autoimmune disease re-examined in light of metagenomic concepts.” You can follow her on her website Microbeminded.com and also on twitter @microbminded2.   You can fund research she is doing on ALS, MS, Fibromyalgia, and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome here. https://www.gofundme.com/f/help-me-research-mecfs-ptlds-als-etc #autoimmunity #dysbiosis #pathobionts #microbes #intestinalpermability #molecularmimicry

Osteoporosis and Bone Health with Dr. John Neustadt
 Bone health is one of the most important topics in medicine. Why? Because bone fractures are one of the leading causes of mortality in older adults.  In this episode we speak with Dr. John Neustadt; one of the leading integrative medicine clinicians in the area of bone health and osteoporosis. He has really brought to the forefront researched based nutrients such as Vitamin K2 (MK4), Calcium, Vitamin D , and other diet and lifestyle interventions that are geared toward reducing fracture risk. We discuss bone density testing and the context of the T-score on the Dexa Scan as well as what really matters when it comes to choice of therapies.  We speak about risk factors leading toward bone density issues and what we can all do to strive for healthy bones. Bone physiology is a fascinating topic as is a unique coordination of bone production orchestrated by osteoblasts and bone remodeling and re-absorption orchestrated by osteoclasts and for good bone to be made the body needs a coordination between these components.  It also has many factors such as hormone, immune, and inflammatory elements.  Bone density improvement does not necessarily mean better bones.  We go into this and more on this episode.  About Dr. Neustadt John Neustadt, ND was Founder and Medical Director of Montana Integrative Medicine and Founder and President of the dietary supplement Nutritional Biochemistry, Inc. (NBI) and NBI Pharmaceuticals. He’s a Medical Expert for TAP Integrative, a nonprofit educating doctors about integrative medicine.

Autophagy and Molecular Nutrition with Jeffrey Novack, PhD
Autophagy is  a term that refers to cellular self-digestion.  We have heard the term self-attack-self in situations like autoimmunity; Well this a different type of process that is a normal every day process in the cell of cellular self-digestion. Technically autophagy is a catabolic metabolic program/process that is activated when intracellular nutrient uptake or availability is diminished.  It was coined in the 1960’s by the late Christian de Nuve. It has resurfaced quite predominately since  Yoshinori Ohsumi was awarded the 2016 Nobel Prize in Medicine for his discoveries of mechanisms for autophagy – a study into how cells detoxify and repair themselves.  Autophagy has a number of pathways that are studied that are associated with it such as the Mammalian Target of Rapamycin (MTOR) and  Nuclear factor erythroid 2-related factor 2 (NRF2). This is relavant because we know inflammation causes disease and many protective pathways of inflammation are regulated by NRF2 . Likewise we know that protein aggregating in cells is one of the key findings in disease.  Autophagy is one of the pathways that clears up protein debris from harming cells.   So understanding inflammation and autophagy is kind of important.  Inflammation can knock down autophagy so these topics must be studied together. Our guest Dr. Jeffrey Novack understand these pathways quite well and most interesting to us is that he understands how nutrition and chemicals from plants can influence these pathways.   More about our guest.  Dr. Jeff Novack earned his Ph.D. in pharmacology from the University of Washington School of Medicine (Department of Pharmacology) in signal transduction (lab of Dr. Joe Beavo). He did post-doctoral research in immunology and tyrosine kinase signaling at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center (lab of Dr. John Cooper). He taught pharmacology, immunology, infectious disease, and pathology at the medical school level for 13 years. He most recently was a tenured faculty at Bellevue College, where he taught anatomy and physiology, microbiology, cell biology, and nutrition. Dr. Novack joined the faculty at PNWU in September of 2012 and has taught immunology, portions of pathology, and pharmacology. He has done research on the effects of PSK on immune function in mice and humans and is interested in the effect of natural products on the innate and adaptive immunity and on inflammation. He likes to hike (has climbed all of the volcanoes in Washington state), bike, fish, cook and do polar bear swims in the winter. Articles mentioned in the episode Novack.

PCOS with Dr. Shannon Hirst
Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) effects 1 out of 10 women and is one of the most common causes of infertility. PCOS at its core is a metabolic and reproductive hormone problem. Anyone who has dealt with it can tell you that it feels like the metabolism has a mind of its own and common approaches to helping bring hormone balance or blood sugar balance often aren't enough. I brought in Dr. Shannon Hirst a Naturopathic Physician who specializes in women’s hormone health to discuss PCOS. Dr. Hirst is licensed Naturopathic Physician in Woodinville, Washington and received a Doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine and Family Medicine Residency from Bastyr University in Kenmore , Washington. She also holds a bachelors in science in Cellular and Molecular Biology from Western Washington University. You can find her at www.drshannonhirst.com and on twitter @drhirst. In this episode we discuss the underlying hormone and metabolic imbalance in PCOS and what’s important to know. Also, we go the issues that people with PCOS face. With many people silently struggling with this condition; I am appreciative of the integrative and holistic approach Dr. Hirst takes. Our podcast focuses on the integrative health arena with a special emphasis on gut, metabolism, inflammation, and emotional health; this episode approaches and discusses many of these areas. Enjoy and share with friends, loved ones, and colleagues.

Mental Health and Neurodiversity with Dr. Teray Garchitorena Kunishi
If you are alive, it is safe to say you know someone diagnosed with a mental health disorder.  You also likely know how important it is to receive an accurate diagnosis and limit the stigma attached to a mental health diagnosis.  In this episode Dr. Teray Garchitorena Kunishi an experienced expert in mental health and a Naturopathic Physician in San Francisco speaks about mental health and the concept of neurodiversity ; where mental health issues are seen as a variant of what is considered as a norm rather than as as firmly abnormal.  This has become a particularly important concept in Autism Spectrum Disorders,  Bipolar Disease, and Schizophrenia.  It is not without controversy and we look at both aspects of neurodiversity approaches in this episode.  We also speak about societies where conditions like Schizophrenia are treated like a gift and people who deal with this gift are supported and nurtured rather then ostracized.   This is a very deep and meaningful episode and one that I am sure will be thought provoking. Please follow Dr. Teray on her website where you also find her course on the Art, Science, and practice of Happiness. It was an honor to interview Dr. Teray and I hope you enjoy  the episode as much as I did. Subscribe to our episode in your favorite podcast player including itunes and stitcher

Postpartum depression episode with Sunita Iyer, ND, LM
Having a child is supposed to be great joy for a parent. However  up to 11% of women and 2% of men, experience postpartum depression; a unique mental health condition that is often downplayed, overlooked, and under-treated. It has significant implications on child and parent alike.  My colleague Dr. Iyer of Eastside Natural Medicine of Kenmore, Washington joined me in this most thoughtful discussion of this topic. Dr. Iyer has been someone I have respected for many years. She is compassionate, clear thinking, brilliant, and keeps it real. Through her work as a  licensed midwife, naturopathic physician and University of Washington school of nursing instructor,   she has developed a special interest in grief.  She feels  the perinatal period is a type of grief process that needs proactive support. It's quite fascinating to listen to her. It’s no doubt why students, patients, and colleagues love Dr. Iyer as she is someone you can really trust. I hope you enjoy it and please share it with new parents or new parents to be as this episode is important to hear  .Find Dr. Iyer and her bio at https://eastsidenaturalmedicine.com/

Post Meal Glucose Response With Richard Sprague
 What is the best diet? This question remains the million (probably billion) dollar question in health, nutrition and medicine. The winner will likely be the healthy diet is one that prevents the most disease and weight gain. Now there seems to be an approach that has caught the attention of patients and providers internationally and that looking at individualized post-meal glucose response as a guide to one’s individualized diet. And guess what? The researchers say that the post meal glucose response is largely dependent as to what kinds of bugs are growing in our gut. Listen in on today’s episode as we explore the individualized diet and post meal glucose response. Some back ground information. Post meal glucose response is defined classically as the rises in blood glucose measured in ng/dl. Why does it matter? As a biomarker it predicts one’s ability to regulate glucose. Glucose regulated means less inflammation in the body, less risk for heart disease, less risk for diabetes, less risk for kidney disease, less risk for eye disease, and less risk for obesity…you get the picture. Typically in a non-diabetic a fasting blood glucose will range from 70 ng/dl to 99 ng/dl and after eating a carbohydrate containing meal the blood glucose will rise between 100 ng/dl-140ng/dl. This can be influenced by protein and fat content in the food source however it is largely driven by carbohydrate intake. Until researchers started looking to the gut microbiome, the large dietary agencies that be would look at glucose content of foods and make predictions as to how these foods would spike blood sugar. This list is called the glycemic index of foods. Then later they looked at how combinations of foods might spike one’s glucose and this is called glycemic load. Now a group out of the Weizmann Institute developed a test and algorithm of post meal glucose response based on DNA sequencing of the bugs that are growing in human guts. By monitoring glucose response in human subjects, they were able to predict that one’s own signature gut microbiome, can largely influence ones glucose response to food. about our guest  Richard Sprague is a heath technology executive, biohacker, citizen scientist and engineer. He is quite the interesting man.  He is the CEO of Airdoc (a medical technology company).  He has been quite involved with Stool Microbiome testing using 16s rRnA metabolome sequencing. At one point he worked with Ubiome one of the pioneers in stool microbiome testing.  He must own the record for the number of times he has tested his own stool microbiome (over 300).  With this background he brings an interesting perspective on what is actionable within gut microbiome data.

Metabolic Flexibility. With Dr. Geoff Lecovin
We speak with Geoff Lecovin, DC, ND, LaC, MS, CSCS (Yes thats a lot of initials!).  Dr. Lecovin is a Kirkland, Washington based physician who specializes in performance.  He is very involved with researching the latest on metabolism and sports medicine. We talk about metabolic flexibility and the different trendy diets that are directed at changing our metabolism. So many people feel like their metabolism is stuck in place. If they avoid carbohydrates, they don't feel right and if they eat carbohydrates they crave even more.  This gives us a clue that the body has become metabolically inflexible.  Have you ever driven a hybrid car?  Do you admire how it can run on either gas or electricity? That is similar to someone who is metabolic flexible. If they decide to fast, they feel fine for the 16-24 hours without food. If they decide to enjoy carbohydrates, they don't become inflamed.  Staying metabolically flexible is easier then restoring it.  We are learning approaches to sleep,  exercise,and nutritional strategies that might help.  For full show page visit
