These microbiomes are vital to the development of the immune system and various neural functions – known as the gut-brain axis *The gut-brain axis is the biochemical signaling that takes place between the gastrointestinal tract and the central nervous system* An increasing body of research results confirms the importance of the "gut-brain axis" for neurology and indicates that the triggers for a number of neurological diseases, specifically anxiety and depression, may be located in the digestive tract How the Gut Interacts with the Brain The gut is connected to the brain via the vagus nerve, the enteric nervous system, and the gut-brain axis. Vagus Nerve The vagus nerve extends from the brainstem down into the neck, thorax, and abdomen. The nerve exits the brainstem through rootlets in the medulla that are caudal to the rootlets for the ninth cranial nerve The vagus nerve supplies motor parasympathetic fibers to all organs except adrenal glands, all the way from the neck down to the second segment of the transverse colon. It helps regulate heart rate, speech, sweating, and various gastrointestinal functions. Enteric Nervous System The enteric nervous system connects with the central nervous system. It contains 200-600 million neurons Local and centrally projecting sensory neurons in the gut wall monitor mechanical conditions in the gut wall. Local circuit neurons, on the other hand, integrate this information. This enables motor neurons to influence the activity of the smooth muscles in the gut wall and glandular secretions such as digestive enzymes, mucus, stomach acid, and bile The enteric nervous system has been referred to as a “second brain” because of its ability to operate autonomously and communicate with the central nervous system through the parasympathetic (i.e., via the vagus nerve) and sympathetic nervous systems. Gut-Brain Axis Finally, the gut-brain axis consists of bidirectional communication between the central and the enteric nervous system, linking emotional and cognitive centers of the brain with peripheral intestinal functions. There is strong evidence from animal studies that gut microorganisms can activate the vagus nerve and play a critical role in mediating effects on the brain and behavior. (1) Connections between the gut and the brain/Anxiety and Depression Recent studies on laboratory animals that grow up without any microorganisms (germ-free) show that microorganisms in the gut are capable of influencing mood Maintaining a Healthy Gut No one knows the exact ingredients for a healthy microbial gut; however, having a diet rich in probiotic foods to maintain a healthy gut seems like the way to go Probiotics seemingly boost mood in two important ways: They generate a particular neurotransmitter called gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) and also enhance the brain receptors for GABA as well. GABA is calming amino acid, known to calm areas of the brain that are over active in anxiety and panic and in some forms of anxious depression.

How Your Gut Influences Your Mental Health: It’s Practically a Second Brain | Dr. Emeran Mayer
 
08:19
Neuroscientists now think of the gut as a "second brain"; it independently controls your digestive processes and is in constant conversation with your main brain. What do they talk about? Depression, theorizes Dr Emeran Mayer. Mayer's latest book is "The Mind-Gut Connection: How the Hidden Conversation Within Our Bodies Impacts Our Mood, Our Choices, and Our Overall Health" (https://goo.gl/vKFPZt). Read more at BigThink.com: http://bigthink.com/videos/emeran-mayer-on-depression-and-the-mind-gut-connection Follow Big Think here: YouTube: http://goo.gl/CPTsV5 Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/BigThinkdotcom Twitter: https://twitter.com/bigthink Transcript - The Mind-Gut Connection is something that people have intuitively known for a long time but science has only I would say in the last few years gotten a grasp and acceptance of this concept. It essentially means that your brain has intimate connections with the gut and another entity in our gut, the second brain, which is about 100 million nerve cells that are sandwiched in between the layers of the gut. And they can do a lot of things on their own in terms of regulating our digestive processes. But there’s a very intimate conversation between that little brain, the second brain in the gut and our main brain. They use the same neurotransmitters. They’re connected by nerve pathways. And so we have really an integrated system from our brain to the little brain in the gut and it goes in both directions. The little brain, or the second brain, in the gut you’re not able to see it because as I said it’s spread out through the entire length of the gut from your esophagus to the end of your large intestine, several layers of nerve cells interconnected. And what they do is even if you – and you can do this in animal experiments if you completely disconnect this little brain in the gut from your main brain this little brain can completely take care of all the digestive processes, the contractions, peristaltic reflex, regulation of blood flow in the intestine. And it has many sensors so it knows exactly what’s going on inside the gut, what goes on in the wall of the gut, any distention, any chemicals. All of this is being picked up by these sensory nerves, fed into the interior nervous system, the second brain. And then the second brain generates these stereotypic responses. So when you vomit, when you have diarrhea, when you have normal digestion, all of this is encoded in programs in your second brain. Read Full Transcript Here: https://goo.gl/n9opP9.

Psychiatric Illness Treated As Nutritional Deficiencies
 
40:06
Learn how important nutrition is in our daily lives! Psychiatric illness treated as nutritional deficiencies. Over 80% of serotonin is found where? NO NOT in the brain. It is in the GUT! This is why there has been such a huge jump in mental illness in America such as ADD, Depression and autism. The culprit is leaky gut which is from antibiotic use early in life. The antibiotics kill the normal gut flora and therefore make it impossible for us to break down the foods we eat properly. Even worse, it also leads to the ability of the larger proteins, such as Gluten, to get directly into the blood stream. This causes systemic inflammation which can lead to autoimmune disorders. Learn the truth about how to make better food choices that can lead to better mental health.

Natural Cure for Depression, Bipolar, ADHD, Schizophrenia
 
09:27
This alternative therapy employs vitamins, minerals, and amino acids to create optimum nutritional content for the body, as well as the right environment and equilibrium. Like most alternative medicine techniques, orthomolecular medicine targets a wide range of conditions. [depression, bipolar, adhd, schizophrenia, add, addiction, alcoholism, drug addiction...] Orthomolecular medicine was developed by Linus Pauling, Ph.D., winner of two Nobel prizes, in 1968. It is designed to enable individuals to reach the apex of health and the peak of their performance by utilizing only naturally occurring substances (e.g. vitamins, minerals, enzymes, trace elements, co-enzymes). The proper balance of these substances in the body is the key to reaching physical, mental, and emotional health and stability. Orthomolecular medicine can be used therapeutically to treat diseases such as cancer and AIDS, or preventatively to impede the progress of degenerative disease and aging. When all is said and done, however, the main objective of orthomolecular medicine is to help the patient reach an optimal level of health; his or her self-esteem will probably improve in the process. Although orthomolecular medicine did not fully develop into a therapy until the late 1960's when Pauling coined the term "orthomolecular," the premise behind this practice originated in the 1920's, when vitamins and minerals were first used to treat illnesses unrelated to nutrient deficiency. It was discovered that vitamin A could prevent childhood deaths from infectious illness, and that heart arrhythmia (irregular heartbeat) could be stopped by dosages of magnesium. Hard scientific evidence supporting nutritional therapy did not emerge, however, until the 1950's, when Abram Hoffer, M.D., and Humphrey Osmond, M.D., began treating schizophrenics with high doses of vitamin B3 (niacin). As a consequence of their studies, it was revealed that niacin, in combination with other medical treatments, could double the number of recoveries in a one-year period. Eventually, it was determined that malnutrition and consumption of refined, empty-calorie foods such as white bread and pastries and overconsumption of sugar could yield disease and psychiatric disorders. It became apparent that a person's diet was an overwhelmingly integral part of his or her health and well-being. Further studies showed that decreased intake of dietary fiber, bran, minerals, and complex carbohydrates was prevalent in patients with certain forms of mental illness, accompanied by a loss of vitamins and an increase in dietary fat. Biochemical individual is a main principle of orthomolecular medicine. This principle was elucidated by Roger J. Williams, Ph.D. This principle is quite simple: every living organism is unique! Furthermore, each individual requires different relative amounts of nutrients for his or her satisfaction and optimal level of health. The government sets a minimum recommended daily allowance (RDA) which is supposed to be adequate for all individuals. However, many may need to exceed the RDA as well as the recommended 2,000 calorie diet in order to prevent severe deficiency disease. Thus, RDA values are not perfect guidelines for everyone. Several studies have proven the existence of biochemical individuality. For example, studies of guinea pigs showed a twentyfold variation in their requirement for vitamin C. A study conducted with human subjects revealed that children have varying needs for vitamin B6.

Inside the Brain: Unraveling the Mystery of Alzheimer's Disease [HQ]
 
04:23
This 4-minute captioned video shows the intricate mechanisms involved in the progression of Alzheimer's disease in the brain. http://www.nia.nih.gov Permission to use ADEAR materials is not required. When you use our materials in print, on the Web, or in a video or audio format, we simply request that you credit the "Alzheimer's Disease Education and Referral Center, a service of the National Institute on Aging." The human brain is a remarkable organ. Complex chemical and electrical processes take place within our brains that let us speak, move, see, remember, feel emotions and make decisions. Inside a normal healthy brain, billions of cells called neurons constantly communicate with one another.They receive messages from each other as electrical charges travel down the axon to the end of the neuron. The electrical charges release chemical messengers called neurotransmitters. The transmitters move across microscopic gaps, or synapses, between neurons. They bind to receptor sites on the dendrites of the next neuron.This cellular circuitry enables communication within the brain. Healthy neurotransmission is important for the brain to function well. Alzheimer's disease disrupts this intricate interplay. By compromising the ability of neurons to communicate with one another, the disease over time destroys memory and thinking skills. Scientific research has revealed some of the brain changes that take place in Alzheimer's disease. Abnormal structures called beta amyloid plaques and neurofibrillary tangles are classic biological hallmarks of the disease. Plaques form when specific proteins in the neuron's cell membrane are processed differently. Normally, an enzyme called Alpha-secretase snips amyloid precursor protein, or APP, releasing a fragment. A second enzyme, Gamma-secretase, also snips APP in another place. These released fragments are thought to benefit neurons. In Alzheimer's disease, the first cut is made most often by another enzyme, Beta-secretase. That, combined with the cut made by Gamma-secretase, results in the release of short fragments of APP called Beta-Amyloid. When these fragments clump together, they become toxic and interfere with the function of neurons. As more fragments are added, these oligomers increase in size and become insoluable, eventually forming Beta-Amyloid plaques. Neurofibrillary tangles are made when a protein called tau is modified. In normal brain cells, tau stabilizes structures critical to the cell's internal transport system. Nutrients and other cellular cargo are carried up and down the structures called microtubules to all parts of the neuron. In Alzheimer's disease, abnormal tau separates from the microtubules, causing them to fall apart. Strands of this tau combine to form tangles inside the neuron, disabling the transport system and destroying the cell. Neurons in certain brain regions disconnect from each other and eventually die, causing memory loss. As these processes continue, the brain shrinks and loses function. We now know a great deal about changes that take place in the brain with Alzheimer's disease, but there is still much to learn. What other changes are taking place in the aging brain and its cells and what influence do other diseases, genetics, and lifestyle factors have on the risk of developing Alzheimer's disease as the brain and body age? Scientific research is helping to unravel the mystery of Alzheimer's and related brain disorders As we learn more, researchers move ever closer to discovering ways to treat and ulimately prevent this devestating, fatal disease.

Korean researchers inch closer to radical treatment for bipolar disorder
 
01:44
늘어나는 '조울증'…근본적 치료 가능성 열어 A mild form of bipolar disorder is becoming increasingly common among people in Korea these days due to various stress factors. A local research team here in Korea has found a new principle behind the mental illness,... bringing them one step closer to finding a way to treat and possibly even prevent it. Park Se-young has the details. Korea has seen a steady rise in the number of patients with bipolar disorder in recent years. By 2015, 92-thousand people had been diagnosed with the mental illness. Amid the global research efforts devoted to bipolar disorder, a Korean research team has discovered a new principle behind its occurrence. Bipolar disorder is the result of an imbalance between the "exciting" and "comforting" neurons in the brain that either promote or suppress various forms of excitement. The researchers have spotted the key enzyme that governs the interaction. When a protein behind the production of that enzyme was removed from the brains of mice, they displayed excessive excitement and symptoms of bipolar disorder. "The balance is broken when the gamma-1 enzyme loses its ability to function. Amid abnormalities resulting from the imbalance, we observed symptoms of bipolar disorder." The researchers say bipolar disorder can be caught and maybe even prevented through regular observations of the enzyme protein. The ability to regulate the balance of neurons using the newly discovered enzyme is expected to open the door to personalized treatment for individual symptoms. Park Se-young, Arirang News.

Always seek the advice of a qualified healthcare provider with any questions you may have regarding a medical condition. Parkinson's disease, or PD, is a neurodegenerative disorder in which DOPAMINE-producing neurons of a brain structure called the SUBSTANTIA NIGRA, are damaged and die over time, leading to a number of MOTOR problems and mental disabilities. The substantia nigra is part of the basal ganglia, whose major function is to INHIBIT UNwanted motor activities. When a person intends to make a movement, this inhibition is removed by the action of dopamine. As dopaminergic neurons are progressively lost in PD patients, LOW levels of dopamine make it HARDER to INITIATE voluntary movements. The events leading to neuronal cell death are poorly understood but the presence of so-called “Lewy bodies” in the neurons before they die may offer a clue and is currently the subject of intensive research. Symptoms develop slowly over time; most prominent are MOTOR problems which include hand tremors, slow movements, limb rigidity and problems with gait and balance. These motor symptoms are collectively known as "PARKINSONISM". However, parkinsonism may also be caused by a variety of other factors, which must be excluded before a person can be diagnosed with PD. Other motor-related problems may include slurred speech and reduced facial expressions. In later stages, non-motor symptoms such as mood and behavioral changes, cognitive impairment and sleep disturbances… may be observed. The cause of Parkinson's remains largely unknown but is likely to involve both genetic and environmental factors. There is no cure for PD but current treatments are effective in managing motor symptoms: First-line treatment involves medications which aim to INcrease dopamine levels in the brain. Major classes of medication include: - Levodopa, a precursor of dopamine: levodopa can cross the blood brain barrier and is converted into dopamine inside the brain. Levodopa is the most effective of all medications but because it also produces dopamine elsewhere in the body, its side effects may become serious in the long-term. For this reason, levodopa is always administered together with some other drugs that inhibit its action OUTSIDE the brain. - Dopamine agonists: substances that bind to dopamine receptors and mimic the action of dopamine. - Another class of drugs includes INHIBITORS of enzymes that break down dopamine. For people who do NOT respond to medications, surgery may be recommended. The most commonly performed procedure, deep brain stimulation, involves the implantation of a device called a neurostimulator, which sends electrical impulses to specific parts of the brain. By doing so, the device controls brain activities to relieve symptoms.

Alleviating Anxiety and Depression with Probiotics

What does our gut health have to do with our mental health? Many of the neurotransmitters in our brain are triggered or produced by the state of our gut health. What is "Gut Health"? We are talking about the microorganisms and various bacteria that help in everything from digestion to serotonin production. As Dr. Rob mentions in the video, GABA, which is a calming neurotransmitter and the key regulator for anxiety is produced through balanced intestinal health. Serotonin is also heavily produced in the gut, lending more evidence to the fact we need healthy gut bacteria. The probiotic mentioned in the video is by Garden of Life, Dr. Formulated Mood+. You can find it at most health food stores and online retailers. https://www.gardenoflife.com/658010120043-dr-formulated-probiotics-mood-50-billion-cfu-shelf-stable-60-vegetarian-capsules We now know more about the relation of gut health and mental health. As the research continues to shed light on the overwhelming correlation with the two we will continue to bring you tips and natural treatments to try before going to prescription medication.

This closes out my 4-part video series on the latest in probiotic science. I started with the two most established indications for their use in Preventing and Treating Diarrhea with Probiotics (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/preventing-and-treating-diarrhea-with-probiotics/), then moved onto a more speculative use in Preventing the Common Cold with Probiotics? (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/preventing-the-common-cold-with-probiotics/), and then offered practical advice on how to best take probiotic supplements in my last video, Should Probiotics Be Taken Before, During, or After Meals? (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/should-probiotics-be-taken-before-during-or-after-meals/). The colon removal story reminds me of the mastectomies they used to do for breast pain (Plant-Based Diets For Breast Pain http://nutritionfacts.org/video/plant-based-diets-for-breast-pain/). Why might the vegetarian diet alone have improved mood?

Stress, Depression And Anxiety Are All Alleviated By Probiotics (Here’s a List of Foods to Eat!)
 
09:13
Stress, Depression And Anxiety Are All Alleviated By Probiotics (Here’s a List of Foods to Eat!) Depression was characterized to be a “chemical imbalance” in the brain, but recently, scientists have discovered that things are far more serious than that. The first theory defines depression, but it does not refer to the root causes of it, and scientists maintain that they might be various, including chronic stress and inflammation. Another recent study has also found that gut issues might result in depression and other mood disorders. The belly contains 400 species of bacteria at one single moment, and many others also live on the skin. These bacteria contain genes which outnumber the ones in all body cells. Namely, genomes of the bacteria and viruses of the human gut only are believed to encode 3.3 million genes. The gut actually protects the entrance of harmful pathogens into the bloodstream, which have managed to enter the digestive tract. Gut bacteria are crucial and are even found in breast milk, and babies who are bottle-fed, lack these vital critters and have a higher chance to suffer from immune issues and allergies. Bacteria are important for boosting the effects of enzymes like maltase, lactase, alkaline phosphatase, sucrase, and alpha-glucosidase, and for metabolizing cholesterol and triglycerides to maintain the stable blood pressure. This is the reason why there are modern medical fecal transplants to reverse chronic issues, IBS, and inflammatory bowel disease. Gut bacteria boost the immune system, affect the brain, and regulate the balance between health and illness. Experts from Griffith University in Queensland, Australia, analyzed the results of 7 former studies conducted on more than 300 volunteers in order to estimate the beneficial effects of probiotics in the treatment of perceived stress, anxiety, and depression. In their words: “Interest in the gut-brain axis and emerging evidence that the intestinal microbiota can influence central nervous system function has led to the hypothesis that probiotic supplementation can have a positive effect on mood and psychological symptoms such as depression and anxiety.” Their conclusion was that “The meta-analysis showed that supplementation with probiotics resulted in a statistically significant improvement in psychological symptoms compared with placebo”. Even though their research revealed the potential benefits of the treatments with probiotics, yet, there is a need for further scientific research. Proceedings of the National Academy of Science published a research which indicated that Lactobacillus rhamnosus, a bacterium found in yogurt, gave positive effects in the case of anxiety and depression in mouse studies, and researchers contribute this to its action on the gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) system. Oxford disease neurobiologists discovered that prebiotics have potent anti-anxiety effects, as they change the way we process emotional information. Oxford neurobiologist Dr. Philip Burnet, the study’s lead author, for an interview in the Huffington Post, said: “Prebiotics are dietary fibers (short chains of sugar molecules) that good bacteria break down, and use to multiply. Prebiotics are ‘food’ for good bacteria already present in the gut. Taking prebiotics, therefore, increases the numbers of all species of good bacteria in the gut, which will theoretically have greater beneficial effects than [introducing] a single species.” This study involved 45 healthy adults between the ages of 18 and 45, who received either a prebiotic or a placebo in a period of three weeks, and their mental state was analyzed through computer tests which processed emotional information. The participants who received a prebiotic group were found to be much less sensitive to negative information and experienced less anxiety than the others. Moreover, the saliva tests showed that they had reduced cortisol (a stress hormone related to anxiety and depression). According to Dr. Kirsten Tillisch, the study’s lead author, “Time and time again, we hear from patients that they never felt depressed or anxious until they started experiencing problems with their gut. Our study shows that the gut–brain connection is a two-way street.” https://youtu.be/9ijo9ZKxRac

Nutrition and Your Mental Health
 
09:43
Be My Friend - http://www.myspace.com/psychtruth Nutrition by Natalie Nutrition and Your Mental Health What does nutrition have to do with mental health? You might be surprised to find out the truth behind what happens when a person has a nutritional deficiency. Nutritional deficiencies can cause all sorts of psychiatric symptoms including apathy, low energy, irritability, insomnia, low energy, agitation, fatigue, concentration problems, aches and pains, weight changes, including weight loss or weight gain. Sound a lot like the symptoms of depression? The truth is the average American diet of fast food is low in vital nutrition that you need for your body to function correctly. This isn't to say that all depression is caused by bad nutrition but it's certainly a contributing factor in many cases and poor nutrition will always make depression worse. Antidepressant drugs also do not correct nutritional problems. So if your depressed because of nutritional problems an antidepressant will only partially cover up the problem and you body still won't function correctly.

Click on http://amzn.to/1Ln2IXt. Also see "Dr. Melissa Palmer's Guide To Hepatitis and Liver Disease." http://amzn.to/1MCnnrS. Liver Damage Symptoms What Are The Symptoms Of Liver Damage? Liver damage is serious and can even be fatal, so it's important to recognize what the symptoms are as soon as possible. Generally speaking, there are often no early signs of liver damage. The liver is a remarkable organ that can continue to function even though it has suffered significant harm from any number of biological or chemical threats and diseases. It can literally take years before any symptoms of liver damage present themselves. When liver damage symptoms do begin to appear, however, they usually include one or more of the following: abdomen pain in the upper right part of the stomach abdominal distention, caused by a condition called ascites, which is the buildup of fluid in the abdominal cavity darkened urine depression, malaise, or a vague feeling of illness diarrhea fatigue and listlessness generalized itching hypoglycemia or low blood sugar jaundice, which is apparent in a yellowing of the skin. Jaundice is often the result of cholestasis, which is the blockage or stoppage of bile flow. Jaundice is often the first symptom of liver damage. light-colored stools loss of appetite lowered of sex drive low grade fever muscular pain and aches nausea unusual weight loss or weight gain varicose veins (enlarged blood vessels) vomiting Sleeplessness, confusion and mental disorientation are symptoms of severe liver problems. The patient may even go into a coma Although liver damage may be caused by physical trauma, such as a severe blow to the body, it more often occurs gradually as a result of liver disease or some other form of liver disorder. These typically include hepatitis B, hepatitis C, over indulgence in alcohol, cirrhosis, poor diet and nutritional habits drug abuse, including an overdose of acetaminophen and reactions to certain prescription medications. Certain foods can cause liver damage, especially poisonous mushrooms. Alcohol abuse is, of course, one of the most prevalent causes of liver damage around the world. And even overuse of certain over-the-counter drugs may harm the liver. And then there are illegal drugs that can be especially devastating. Once again, the liver is an extremely efficient, sturdy and resilient organ, liver damage symptoms may not begin to appear as soon as damage begins.

Gluten Free Diet: The Truth About Grains- Thomas DeLauer
 
06:53
Be Sure to Subscribe for 3x Videos Per Week! http://www.ThomasDeLauer.com Gluten Free Diet: The Truth About Grains- Thomas DeLauer… Those with gluten trouble should also be cautious with other grains because of proteins known as prolamins. Prolamins are proteins that exist in the seeds of cereal grains. Prolamins: Gluten consists of a prolamin and a glutelin. Prolamins are storage proteins, and they are the “hardware stores” of the wheat structure that distribute amino acids central to the plant’s development. Glutelin is the “glue” that holds these hardware stores together. Wheat gluten itself consists of the prolamin gliadin and the glutelin glutenin. Gliadin stimulates zonulin, the traffic cop of the gut lining, to allow it to pass into our digestive tract largely undigested and interacting with tissue transglutaminase (tTG), an enzyme found throughout the body. Tissue transglutaminase is a critical part of how the body functions, and specifically, how the tight junctions in the microvilli (think hairy fingers) in our gut are formed. When tTG interacts with gliadin, it creates antibodies - enzyme that is such an important part of our body is now bad - body attacks itself. Celiac disease is one of the most well-known gluten-related diseases, and those with the disease are advised to avoid more than wheat. ● Roughly 1% of people have celiac disease- Besides wheat, the following grains contain prolamins: Grain Prolamin Protein Wheat Gliadin Barley Hordein Oats Avenin Corn Zein Rye Secalin Sorghum Karirin Not all prolamins are believed to trigger celiac disease - the main ones are those from wheat, barley, and rye. Oats can be a trigger for some. So how do prolamins and gluten relate? ● The prolamin gliadin in wheat is the main protein that is believed to trigger celiacs, and gliadin is one of the proteins that makes up gluten. Prolamins can cause more problems than just celiacs disease. For those who react negatively to them, they can cause: ● Brain fog ● Joint pain ● Thyroid issues ● Chronic inflammation ● Increase intestinal permeability Many of the negative effects are due to a proinflammatory immune response to prolamins. In studies it was found that an increased production of proinflammatory cytokines occurred for both celiac patients as well as healthy controls, however the impact was greater for those with celiac disease. Studies have confirmed that gluten-sensitivity exists, and many who experience IBS have gluten sensitivity. Case Study: In a double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled study on 34 patients with IBS and without celiac disease, it was found that those who followed the gluten-free diet experienced fewer IBS symptoms, pain, fatigue, and bloating as compared with those who consumed the gluten diet. ● 34 patients ● 6 weeks of a gluten-free diet with exception of two bread slices and one muffin per day. Either with gluten or gluten-free ● The mechanism was not discovered as tests did not generate significant differences between the groups, however the reported symptoms were significantly less for those without gluten. If you have sensitivity towards gluten, it is a good idea to replace grains with starchy vegetables, such as sweet potatoes and beets. For everyone, it is a good idea to cut grains out for a week and reintroduce them one at a time to see if you have any sensitivity.

Learn more about liver health on my website here: https://draxe.com/liver-disease/?utm_campaign=Live-Feb-2017&utm_medium=social&utm_source=youtube&utm_term=fattyliver If the fat in your liver makes up 5–10 percent of the organ’s weight, then you are diagnosed with fatty liver disease. One of the hardest-working organs in the body, the liver works tirelessly to detoxify our blood, to produce the bile needed to digest fat, to break down hormones and to store essential vitamins, minerals and iron. That is why it’s so important to take care of our livers. For people with fatty liver disease, the handling of fat by liver cells is disturbed. Increased amounts of fat are removed from the blood and produced by liver cells, and not enough is disposed of or exported by the cells. As a result of this, fat accumulates in the liver. There is an imbalance between the uptake of fat and its oxidation and export. In this video, I share how to heal a fatty liver by removing certain foods from your diet, consuming more cleansing foods and taking care of your mental and emotional health. Watch to learn more.

Phenylketonuria | Biochemistry & Genetics
 
04:44
Phenylketonuria (PKU) is an inborn error of metabolism that results in decreased metabolism of the amino acid phenylalanine.[2] Untreated PKU can lead to intellectual disability, seizures, behavioral problems, and mental disorder. It may also result in a musty smell and lighter skin. Babies born to mothers who have poorly treated PKU may have heart problems, a small head, and low birth weight.[1] Phenylketonuria is a genetic disorder inherited from a person's parents. It is due to mutations in the PAH gene which results in low levels of the enzyme phenylalanine hydroxylase. This results in the build up of dietary phenylalanine to potentially toxic levels. It is autosomal recessive meaning that both copies of the gene must be mutated for the condition to develop. There are two main types, classic PKU and variant PKU, depending on if any enzyme function remains. Those with one copy of a mutated gene typically do not have symptoms.[1] Many countries have newborn screening programs for the disease.

MTHFR Mutation Explained In Plain English
 
04:08
For more information: MTHFR Mutation, Symptoms and Diet: http://www.dietvsdisease.org/mthfr-mutation-symptoms-and-diet/ MTHFR C677T and A1298C: http://www.dietvsdisease.org/mthfr-c677t-a1298c-mutation/ To subscribe: https://www.youtube.com/c/DietvsDiseaseOrg?sub_confirmation=1 Advances in genetic testing has opened up a whole new field of nutrition science, and One of the more common genetic variations is known as an MTHFR mutation. This video takes a quick look at what it is, and how it can affect you. Firstly, MTHFR really looks like an abbreviation of a bad swear word. But it's actually an important enzyme in the body and it stands for Methylenetetrahydrofolate Reductase. MTHFR is necessary for Methylation to occur, which is a metabolic process that switches genes on and off, repairs DNA and many other important things. Methylation is also essential to convert both folate and folic acid – each a form of Vitamin B9 – into its active form that the body can use. Without the enzyme activity of MTHFR, conversion of folate and folic acid into a form that the body can use will not occur. Okay so the production of that MTHFR enzyme is triggered by the MTHFR gene. A variation or "defect" in that gene is known as an MTHFR mutation, and its thought that 30-50% of us carry this genetic defect. Now this part is important: Most people with a mutation remain unaffected and do not experience any noticeable effects. It is not inherently dangerous… Genetic variations are actually very common and are what makes us all look and behave differently. However, for those who are sensitive to this defect, enzyme efficiency can drop down to between 30-70% depending on the type of mutation. This means they do not convert folate and folic acid into their active form very well. The consequence of this is increased levels of homocysteine, which is a strong independent risk factor for heart disease. Those who are sensitive to their MTHFR mutation are also more likely to develop a folate deficiency and are therefore at increased risk for health problems if their diet is not folate-rich. Now what about its influence on cancer, autoimmune diseases, Alzheimer's disease and other disease states? Considering our genes are influenced somewhat by our diet and environment, many studies are able to find a weak link between MTHFR mutations and a particular disease process or disability. But a link does not prove cause and effect. An MTHFR mutation could very well contribute to heart disease and folate deficiency, but that's due to the direct impact it has on homocysteine. Researchers understand that mechanism. But with the current evidence available, it's a big stretch to claim the mutation itself directly causes these other disease states or disabilities. Innocent until PROVEN guilty. There is one other area of health where an MTHFR mutation can be influential, and that's pregnancy. This is because active folic acid is highly protective against Neural Tube Defects of newborns, like spina bifida. That's why all pregnant women are encouraged to take folic acid supplements during the first trimester. Problem is that a folic acid supplement is less likely to be protective if it does not get converted into its active form. So in that sense testing for and flagging an MTHFR mutation could be especially useful for women of childbearing age, and also something to consider if you've had one or more miscarriages. Remember that genetic testing is only a tool to support you in better health. Having a genetic mutation does not necessarily mean it will affect you. As they say, “Genes load the gun, but your environment - your diet and lifestyle - pulls the trigger.” If you enjoyed this please give it a thumbs up and a share, and if you'd like to know more about MTHFR mutations simply click the links above.

Anxiety Relief: Reduces Stress with St. John's Wort- Thomas DeLauer
 
09:43
Anxiety Relief: Reduces Stress with St. John's Wort- Thomas DeLauer | Your Business, Your Brain, and Your Body all work together, learn the ropes at http://www.ThomasDeLauer.com St. John’s Wort is also known as hypericum perforatum. It is a flowering plant that has been used for thousands of years as a medicinal herb. Key uses are as an antidepressant and an anti-inflammatory. Widely used around the world today for mild to moderate depression. There are many studies that support the use of SJW for these purposes, however understanding exactly how it is working is still under way today. SJW has been shown to help reduce biomarkers of stress, which ties into both depression and inflammation. Depression and Stress: Chronic stress can lead to depression symptoms, including anxiety, fatigue, sleeping trouble and loss of appetite. It is also known to lead to cognitive impairment, harming memory ability and mental functioning. There are many ways that SJW has been shown to help reduce depression. Below are just a few of the ways the SJW is able to help reduce biomarkers of stress. Depression is thought to be caused by an interruption in brain neurochemistry, particularly from a deficiency of neurotransmitters, including acetylcholine, serotonin, dopamine and norepinephrine. SJO increases the availability of serotonin, dopamine and norepinephrine in the brain. These help to improve your mood, reducing symptoms of depression. Hypericin and hyperforin are thought to be two of the most important components of SJW that reduce depression symptoms. Hypericin stimulate capillary blood flow and inhibit the enzymes MAO-A and MAO-B. These enzymes are involved in the degradation of the neurotransmitters listed above. It also helps to regulate dopamine levels and action potentials caused by neurotransmitters. Hyperforin is a reuptake inhibitor, making it so neurotransmitters such as serotonin and dopamine are able to create a greater response. This reuptake inhibition does not work the same way that traditional antidepressants work. Rather than blocking 5-HT receptors, SJW results in increased concentrations of sodium and calcium. By making it so that the gradient between the neuron and the synaptic cleft is lesser, reuptake of monoamine neurotransmitters is decreased. It also increases the number of 5-HT receptors, showing possible long-term therapeutic benefit to supplementation. Chronic stress causes interruption of the hypothalamo-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis, leading to an overproduction of glucocorticosteroids. St. John’s Wort has been shown to inhibit genes critical to chronic inflammation. These include the pro-inflammatory cyclooxygenase-2, inducible nitric oxide synthase and interleukin-6. Nitric oxide (NO) synthase is an enzyme that catalyzes the creation of nitric oxide from L-arginine. In areas with inflammation, large quantities of NO exist. In healthy amounts this leads to the removal of organisms causing the inflammation. However, these can become toxic over time, such as with chronic inflammation. Prolonged high concentrations of nitric oxide can lead to tissue damage. In one study it was found that the reduction of inducible nitric-oxide synthase was due to transcriptional inhibition.This study showed that the supplementation of SJW could help to treat chronic inflammatory conditions, such as chronic stress. How Much to Take: For those with depression an initial dose would be 300 mg three times daily. Following this initial dose, most will decrease to 300 to 600 mg daily. St. John’s Wort can interfere with a number of different medications, including but not limited to birth control pills, antidepressants and blood thinners, so be sure to talk to your doctor if you are currently on any medications.

Phenylketonuria (Inborn Error of Metabolism) for USMLE
 
17:00
Phenylketonuria explained for Medical Students and USMLE. Discussing Pathophysiology, Sign, Symptoms, Clinical Findings, Diagnosis, Treatment and Management. Phenylketonuria is an inborn error of disease. Phenylketonuria is an inborn error of metabolism meaning that patient is missing key enzyme required for amino acid phenylalanine. This is the most common inborn error of metabolism and it is autosomal recessive trait. First lets discuss how phenylalanine is degraded by the body. The enzyme Phenylalanine hydroxylase PAH converts the Amino Acid into Tyrosine. The only different is that Tyrosine has an OH group right at the edge. It does require the cofactor tetrabiopterin cofactor also known as BH4. This needs to be recycled and there are enzymes to recycle the BH4. If there is more than 20mg/dL of phenylalanine in the blood it will convert to pheylacetate and pheylpyruvate which are phenylketones and will become excreted into urine. These are not contributing the undelrying pathology bu serve as a good marker of severity. There are theree types of Phenylketonuria, Classic, Hypophenylalanemia and Malignant Phenylketonuria CLASSIC PHENYLKETONURIA There is greater than 20mg/dL of phenylalanine in the blood. Therefore there will be the presence of phenylketones. Generally associated with a complete loss of the enzyme phenylalanine hydroxylase. HYPERPHENYLALANEMIA 20mg/dL of Phenylalanine. This milder and there will be no ketones in the urine. MALIGNANT PHENYLKETONURIA More resistant to treatment because the phenylalanine hydroxylase enzyme is okay, but there is a lot of producing or recycling of tetrahydrobiopterin. The Clinical presentation in classic phenylketonuria is that initially at birth the infant is normal, however, there is a gradual worsening of symptoms. At presentation the patient will start vomiting, generally it is so severe that it may be confused with pyloric stenosis. As the patient gets older the CNS issues become more prevalent. IQ drops by 10 points. Also there are abnomral movements such as seizure, athetosis, rocking back and forth. MRI may show some demyelination in the brain, light skin becuase a lack of tyrosine which is required to make melanin and also corresponds with light eyes and hair loss. There is also a musty smell. With hyperphenelalanemia they are asymptomatic and there is a slow and progressive brain damage. In malignant phenylketonuria and there are other symptoms related to BH4 cofactor which is also a cofactor for Tyrosine to be converted to Dopamine and Tryptophan to be converted to Serotonin and Arginine to be converted to Nitric Oxide Synthase (NO Synthase). Clinically Deterioration even with dietary changes of restricted phenylalanine. CNS findings will be related to hypotonia such as inability to hold their head up. There is also elevated PRL and EPS are noted. Diagnostic test is called BH4 loading test. Give patient 20mg/kg of BH4 and check Phenylalanine level. If it normalize in 4-8 hour than it is probably due to BH4. Treatment is more complex becuase they need to recieve the Neurotransmitters, and Prolactin. Treatment and Management of Phenylketonuria. Primarily diet restriction and there are some commercially available products to remove the phenylalanine. Tyrosine supplement to prevent hypotyrosinemia. Leads to defeiciencies of Iron, Zinc, Selenium and Essential Amino Acids. There they should monitor. Still debate whether they can stop at adolescents. Must avoid apartame which is a sweetener found in soft drinks and vitamins. Sarpropterin is a BH4 analog and it seems to help certain patients and not others. It will help if there is some phenylalanine hydroxylase activity. Also they can recieve Large Neutral Amino Acids (LNAA) such are Arginine, Methionine, Threonine which competes with phenylalanine which goes to the brain. If pregnant it is more important to monitor phenylalanine intake there is increased risk of mental retardation such as microcephaly, congenital heart disease and Intrauterine Growth Restriction. Must maintain Phenylalanine free diet. Prognosis is good if detect in first month they can have normal IQ and this is why it is screened at birth. Sometimes there is a minimal decrease in IQ, especially if 360umol/L. There are some psychological disorders such as agoraphobia. counseling is also very important especially as they get older and monitor their own diet.

Gluten Sensitivity Symptoms and Side Effects
 
04:36
For more on gluten sensitivity: http://draxe.com/gluten-sensitivity-diet/?utm_campaign=Youtube-Sept-2014&utm_medium=social&utm_source=youtube&utm_term=gluten In this video, I’m going to talk about what gluten sensitivity is, symptoms, and side effects. A few of the warning signs that indicate you are gluten sensitive are digestive issues, food allergies, autoimmune disease, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, weight gain, joint pain, arthritis, brain inflammation, ADHD, autism, hypothyroidism, or hormone imbalance. Gluten is a protein found in wheat, barley, and rye that has been hybridized today, resulting in a new breed of gluten. This protein gets into your gut and causes intestinal inflammation, resulting in autoimmune disease and other problems. If you're gluten sensitive and are going gluten free, you can follow the GAPS diet, which supports your digestive system. In addition, taking supplements like L- Glutamine, digestive enzymes, and probiotics will help your body heal from gluten sensitivity. Following these tips you will notice an overall improvement in your gluten sensitivity symptoms!

Discipleship  God's Healing Relational Enzyme
 
02:10
In this story, Kim shares about her history of depression, the key to her regaining wellness, the essentials of taking our thoughts captive, and the value of a spiritual mentor. During my twenties and thirties, a menacing cloud of depression hung over my life. Year by year, the depression grew worse. About with suicidal thoughts caused me to seek medical help. As the mental fog began to clear, I realized I needed to learn a whole new way of thinking if I wanted to leave depression behind for good. I found a Christian counselor and started attending a Bible study at church. The combination of the two helped me learn to take thoughts captive and renew my mind in Scripture. Then something else happened that was utterly life-changing: God provided a spiritual mentor! She listened, laughed, cried, and prayed. She rejoiced when I rejoiced and wept when I wept. When I succeeded, she was so happy you'd have thought the victory was her own. When my heart grew faint, she empathized and cheered me on. There's something incredibly powerful about meeting with another believer week in and week out. Soon I began discipling younger women, and discovered that spiritual mentoring is actually a two-way blessing: both believers are transformed in the process! After a decade or so of happily making disciples, it began bubbling up in my heart to help others do the same. When I shared my passion for spiritual mentoring with my friends, they often replied: “That’s great for you—but I could never do it!” Soon I sensed the Lord nudging me to write down the spiritual mentoring principles He’d taught me over the years—to help other Christian women gain the courage to disciple others. Have you ever considered investing in a younger believer? Do you have a friend who’s depressed who could use a listening ear—and someone to help them renew their mind in Scripture? You don’t have to be a counselor, but your friendship can add a much-needed “relational enzyme” that helps someone dealing with depression hang on, believe God’s love, and get the help they need!
