    The #1 rule when working on gut health

    The #1 rule when working on gut health

    If you're like 3/4 of Americans, you suffer from IBS, diarrhea, acid reflux, constipation, abdominal pain, leaky gut, SIBO, bloating and gas, and so on. In this podcast Dr. Kharrazian explains the number-one rule he follows when working with any gut health patient: Start at the top and work your way down. If you are trying to improve your microbiome but your gallbladder is congested, you likely won't be successful. If you have IBS symptoms but you're not addressing low stomach hydrochloric acid, or if you are constipated and your brain is dysfunctioning due to a head injury, neuroinflammation, or degeneration, again, your success will be limited. In this information-packed episode, Dr. Kharrazian goes over the broad strategies of addressing gut health disorders and takes questions from viewers.

    Mold toxicity — a silent factor in chronic illness

    Mold toxicity — a silent factor in chronic illness

    Mold toxicity is a silent factor a lot of people don’t consider when rooting out causes for chronic health issues. Because most of its signs and symptoms are invisible to everyone else, it often goes unsuspected until symptoms become disabling. Many factors can play a role in mold toxicity, from water damage in your home, school, or workplace, to indoor humidity levels, genetic susceptibility, and your unique immune function. In this podcast, Dr. Kharrazian explains how mold toxicity occurs, what to look out for, ways to test for and address it, and more. Followed by a Q&A with listeners.

    GI symptoms from low stomach acid and gallbladder sludge

    GI symptoms from low stomach acid and gallbladder sludge

    Low stomach acid and gallbladders sludge are very common gut issues in Americans. Low stomach acid can lead to symptoms such as acid reflux, heartburn, indigestion, belching and bloating, and discomfort after eating meats and proteins. Gallbladder sludge can lead to belching and bloating, burping up fish oil capsules, and discomfort after eating fats. Both of these disorders lead to problems throughout the digestive tract and can raise your risk of chronic disease. Instead of always reaching for the antacids or other drugs, learn the various underlying causes of these issues and what to do about them in this video. The good news is they often are easily managed. Learn more at drknews.com.

    Histamine and Mast Cell Activation Syndrome (MCAS)

    Histamine and Mast Cell Activation Syndrome (MCAS)

    In this episode, Dr. Kharrazian goes over the primary mechanisms of histamine intolerance and mast cell activation syndrome (MCAS). But first, make sure you even have these conditions as these diagnoses are being tossed around a little too casually these days. While the low-histamine diet may reduce symptoms, it does not necessarily address the underlying causes and it deprives you of cultured foods, which support microbiome diversity. Additionally, MCAS is a very serious condition, so make sure your self-diagnosis is valid or you may be addressing the wrong target.
    Dr. Kharrazian covers all these topics in a 20-minute talk and then answers questions from viewers. If you suspect you have histamine intolerance or MCAS, this video gives a great foundation from which to move forward.

    Synopsis:
    Symptoms of histamine intoleranceSkin urticariaNasal congestionAnaphylaxisWheezingChronic gastrointestinal issuesChronic migraine issues 
    Key things to note with histamine reactionsDetermine if you actually have histamine intolerance by taking an antihistamine and looking for relief from symptoms.Multiple food sensitivities doesn't necessarily mean you have a mast cell/histamine response.Food sensitivities are delayed IgG response or an IgM responses.Histamine responses involve immediate IgE responses.An allergic reaction IgE reaction to foods and environmental chemicals activate mast cells, which release chemical mediators, including histamine. 
    Mast cell activationHealthy response: Exposure to the antigen triggers mast cells.Occasional symptomatic response: Occasional reactions to triggers such as pollen or pet dander.Chronic histamine response: Chronic histamine issues with constant symptomsMast Cell Activation Syndrome (MCAS): Massive and chronic mast cell response. The body is producing excess mast cells with exaggerated activity, causing significant and severe symptoms 
    Things to look at when you have a histamine responseGenetically low DAO enzymeMethylation issuesExposure to an allergen that develops IgE reactions, e.g mold, parasitic, Lyme infectionUnderlying triggersWhat is amplifying the immune responsesImmune toleranceOther chronic health issues (leaky gut, leaky lung, low vitamin D, etc.) 
    Mast Cell Activation SyndromeMast cell activation stream is the most aggressive form of histamine reaction, has criteria for diagnosis, and may require pharmacological treatment.

    Causes and solutions for chronic bloating

    Causes and solutions for chronic bloating

    Chronic bloating and abdominal distention are common gut health complaints. In this podcast, Dr. Kharrazian covers the primary causes of bloating and how to start implementing solutions. Multiple things can cause bloating, with the underlying mechanisms depending on the individual. You must work north-to-south in the GI tract to identify where your issues lie. Brain-based mechanisms, chewing, stomach health, pancreatic and gallbladder function, microbiome health, motility, and SIBO are discussed in this podcast, followed by a Q&A with listeners. (This is a replay of a Facebook live from June 2020, you can also watch it on YouTube.)

My Hashimoto’s journey !

2002 was when I first manifested hypothyroid symptoms ….. fatigue, hairloss, brain fog, depression ,anxiety, digestive issues. Two endocrinologists and my GP told me I would not be able to work within a year. I was told to take medications for blood pressure, blood sugar, cholesterol medication and antidepressant. It was devastating! However, I refused to let it overcome me.
I started researching ……. I always believe the Higher Power is overseeing everything as long as you trust and believe in Him ! I prayed for guidance !
Dr. Datis started teaching workshops on Functional Medicine in different parts of the country. I then found out what I had was Hashimoto’s. Ever since then I have taken all his trainings and learning everything he teaches.
I am still working, staying healthy, managing my life with every thing he has recommended and taking care of many patients, many have autoimmune disorders.
I am very grateful for Dr. Datis
