    40. Ayahuasca and other psychedelics as potential cancer treatment with Dr. Leanna Standish

    SEASON FINALE!   

    What is the most common factor among those diagnosed with cancer under the age of 50? What role does trauma or adverse childhood events (ACEs) play in the potential for cancer? Could psychedelics like ayahuasca and ketamine be adjunctive or primary treatment for certain cancers?   



    IN THIS EPISODE: I interview my mentor and esteemed colleague, Dr. Leanna Standish.  



    Dr. Standish is a neuroscientist and naturopathic physician living and working in Seattle WA. She holds faculty appointments at the University of Washington School of Medicine in the Radiology Department as well as at Bastyr University. She specializes in integrative oncology and neurology. She leads cancer research teams and holds an FDA IND for a phase I clinical trial of ayahuasca, a psychoactive Amazonian tea.  

    Dr. Standish is board certified in naturopathic oncology. Her research is focused on the Asian medicinal mushroom Trametes versicolor in the treatment of breast and prostate cancer; functional brain imaging in the treatment of brain cancer; and the development of integrative oncology outcomes studies. New projects using IV Resveratrol and IV Curcumin to treat cancer are being developed.  

    She has provided adjunctive naturopathic medical care to hundreds of cancer patients, and has worked collaboratively with Seattle area oncologists to provide integrated conventional/CAM care. A founding board member of the Oncology Association of Naturopathic Physicians, Dr. Standish was board certified in naturopathic oncology in 2006. Her recognition by the oncology community as an expert in naturopathic medicine is evidenced by her being voted one of Seattle’s Best Physicians in the Seattle Metropolitan Magazine in 2002, 2004 and 2008. She has been a member of both the NIH and the Department of Defense study sections for scientific review of CAM research in cancer. Dr. Standish has served as a CAM oncology advisor to MD Anderson Cancer Center.

    37. Intermittent fasting and Type 2 Diabetes with Dr. Azadeh Fariba

    37. Intermittent fasting and Type 2 Diabetes with Dr. Azadeh Fariba

    We hear a lot about intermittent fasting but is it legitimate and can it be helpful for Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus? Is Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus really a disease of insulin resistance? Is it reversible? Is it actually genetic or is it more environmental? Can intermittent fasting help reverse this disease? What about the keto diet? We answer all these questions and more in this episode of Mahan Health.



    Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus is a condition that leads one to being immunocompromised increasing their risk of getting diseases like COVID-19. Understanding this as an environmental disease can help us understand how certain groups of people (predominantly BIPOC) may be more affected by this disease and how we can help them reverse it. 



    IN THIS EPISODE:

    I interview my good friend and esteemed colleague, Dr. Azadeh Fariba. 



    Dr. Azadeh Fariba is a Naturopathic physician who is passionate in alleviating the suffering of her patients. She firmly believes that anyone can improve their health at any time in their life. Her main goal is to empower her patient’s to take control of their lives and health.
