    Drug-Nutrient Interactions with Yvonne Coleman

    Drug-Nutrient Interactions with Yvonne Coleman

    Did you know that in addition to the active ingredients in a drug, its excipients can also greatly impact a patient’s nutritional health or cause side effects? With more and more patients being prescribed multiple medications it’s becoming increasingly important for every practitioner to have resources to help identify potential interactions. Today we are joined by Yvonne Coleman, a dietitian specialising in aged care who has investigated and created a vast compendium of drug-nutrient interactions for practitioners. She takes us through some of the issues in determining what these interactions might be, such as the limitations of pathology testing, as well as some of the most common drugs that affect nutritional status.

    Pharmacies: the New Hub for Healthcare? with Julie Seamer

    Pharmacies: the New Hub for Healthcare? with Julie Seamer

    These days we can walk right into a supermarket or pharmacy and get herbs and supplements off the shelves without a prescription from a doctor or natural health practitioner. But with so many people taking multiple drugs and supplements, how do we ensure what they are taking is safe?Pharmacists have the benefit of having a patient’s medications and possible interactions right at their fingertips, but could they do more? What if the pharmacy became the new hub for healthcare? Naturopath Julie Seamer believes not only is it possible to create a new model of health care where pharmacists, doctors and natural health practitioners can co-manage patients together, but that it will result in the best possible outcomes for our patients.Listen in as she shares some insights from her time working as a naturopath in a pharmacy, as well as how to empower patients to invest in their own health by listening to the ‘whispers’ of their body - before those whispers turn into screams. Julie also discusses her special interest in treating mental health conditions and the importance of destigmatizing mental health and creating strong community support to help those who are struggling.Find today's transcript and show notes here: https://www.fxmedicine.com.au/podcast/pharmacies-new-hub-healthcare-julie-seamer *****DISCLAIMER: The information provided on FX Medicine is for educational and informational purposes only.

In today's podcast, we delve into the substrates, biochemistry and naturopathic management of oestrogen-related conditions.

From his commonsense approach to Iodine dosing to the medical uses of high-dose B6, Dr Gaby is someone you want on your side as an advocate when faced with those who refute ANY efficacy of supplements.

    Clinical Interpretation of Oestrogen Metabolites with Beth Bundy

    Clinical Interpretation of Oestrogen Metabolites with Beth Bundy

    We are well aware of the normal, beneficial actions of oestrogens for both women and men, but what about negative actions? And is this a component of their normal biochemistry? Or are the negative actions more to do with aberrations in how we biotransform these vital hormones?Firstly, notice there's PLURAL when referring to oestrogens. They are not a single entity and the various oestrogens have multiple, even contradictory actions. Moreover, how does the body handle these powerful hormonal messengers once their job is done? Certainly, the evidence on oestrogen metabolism with relation to hormonally-driven cancers is far from unambiguous!Today, we speak with Beth Bundy, our regular guest on FX Medicine Podcast, to discuss just what's going on with oestrogens, what the evidence suggests may be going wrong with their metabolism, what this means for patients whose risk may be elevated, and how we can best help patients to minimise this risk.Listen in as Beth takes us into the tangled web of oestrogen metabolism and unravels some of the controversial research pointing to, and away from, oestrogen metabolites and cancer risk.

I give this Podcast easily 2 thumbs UP! I am a lover of Kombucha and hit was so refreshing and insightful to hear the podcast about the art and science of Kombucha delivered in such a fun way!

Yes to use being more with the program these days and knowing we need to understand what to feed the good bugs instead of thinking we need to only injest the bugs! Cheers to Kombucha being one of the best alive probiotics! CaraF13
