Solving the Puzzle with Dr. Datis Kharrazian is based on more than 20 years of Dr. Kharrazian's experience working with autoimmune and brain health patients throughout the U.S. and Europe, exhaustive review of the scientific research, and protocols he has innovated through trial and error in working with complex patient cases.
Dr. Kharrazian discusses evidence-based models incorporating diet, nutrition, and lifestyle — protocols hard won through decades of working with tough, complex patient cases. 
His goal is to help teach you effective models for so-called “mystery” symptoms and conditions so you can regain control of your health and life.
Hashimoto's: Solving the Puzzle, is a new online course from Dr. Kharrazian, who is the originator of evidence-based strategies for managing autoimmune Hashimoto's hypothyroidism. This course has the most complete and current information for managing Hashimoto's available.

    Is it really SIBO?

    Is it really SIBO?

    The concept of small intestinal bacterial overgrowth is one that is becoming very popular but also widely misunderstood and confusing. Compared to the large intestine, there are very few bacterial species in the small intestine. When SIBO happens, the bacteria in the large intestine translocate to the small intestine causing fermentation, bloating, and excessive distension. Foods that commonly trigger SIBO symptoms include fibrous foods, sugar, sweeteners, prebiotics, and fermented foods.
    However, not all bloating and distension is SIBO. This is where confusion comes from. In this episode, I discuss how to tell it really is SIBO, SIBO tests, what causes it, and what to do about it.

    Brain problems cause gut problems

    Brain problems cause gut problems

    Chronic gut health problems some people face can stem from brain-related dysfunction. Key groups of brain-related problems can cause gut problems: neurodegeneration, traumatic brain injury, neurological autoimmunity, and neurodevelopment disorders.
    In this episode, I discuss these key categories of brain-related problems and how they affect the gut through the vagus nerve as one of its functions is activating the gastrointestinal tract.

    Glutathione: Your Most Important Defense

    Glutathione: Your Most Important Defense

    Glutathione is the body’s master antioxidant, meaning it helps protect your cells from pathogens such as viruses. It also lowers the risk of developing food and chemical sensitivities, and is a powerful ally in managing autoimmunity and preventing tissue destruction.
    Unfortunately, environmental toxins, chronic stress, unhealthy diets, inflammation, medications, alcohol, aging, and many other factors continually deplete glutathione. Making sure your glutathione status is strong and reducing glutathione depletion can play a profound role in immune resilience to viruses and in managing autoimmune disease, inflammation, chemical sensitivities, food sensitivities, and other chronic health issues.
    In this podcast, Dr Kharrazian discusses what glutathione really is, and the supplements and precursors that come in many different forms. How do you know which one to take? How much should you take? How can you tell it's working?

    What thyroid lab tests really tell you

    What thyroid lab tests really tell you

    A complete thyroid panel can tell you about thyroid function, feedback loops, and how thyroid hormones are converting. The main thyroid markers are TSH, the pituitary hormone-stimulating gland, and T4 and T3, which are produced by the thyroid gland. Thyroid hormones are bound to proteins called thyroid hormone-binding globulins. Those are total T4 and total T3. T4 is converted to T3, which also makes reverse T3. At some point, thyroid-binding globulin levels release the T3 and T4, which then become free T3 and free T4. You can have defects all along these pathways, which I discuss in this podcast.

    Hypothyroidism and gallbladder function

    Hypothyroidism and gallbladder function

    If you have hypothyroidism, the first question you have to ask yourself is how long did it take to finally get diagnosed? Most people do not receive a diagnosis immediately after symptoms appear. What happens to most people instead is they struggle with symptoms for months or years: Hair loss, constipation, cold hands and feet, fatigue – symptoms get worse and worse and they keep developing new ones. Yet their doctor says their lab tests are normal until their thyroid function is bad enough to receive a diagnosis or they find a knowledgeable doctor. By then their body has been deprived of thyroid hormone for quite some time. One problem that can lead to is gallbladder sludge and gallstones. Gallbladder congestion in turns leads to poor absorption of fat-soluble vitamins such as vitamin D, which cascades into other health problems.
    This is one reason gallbladder issues are so common among hypothyroid patients.

    Common autoimmune diseases among thyroid patients

    Common autoimmune diseases among thyroid patients

    If you have hypothyroidism, there is a greater than 90% chance that Hashimoto's, an autoimmune disease, is the cause of your hypothyroidism. If you have one autoimmune disease, then you probably have other autoimmune diseases.
    Researchers once believed that autoimmunity was an isolated dysfunction of the gland from an autoimmune response that had no other systemic effects.
    Current research shows autoimmunity stems from immune dysregulation and loss of immune tolerance – meaning the immune system loses tolerance to foods, chemicals, and its own body tissue.
    This means that any tissue in the body is vulnerable to autoimmunity, and that the mechanisms that set into motion one autoimmune disease can lead to another.
    The goal is to regulate immune function and drive autoimmune expression into remission, which will lower your risk of developing future autoimmune diseases.
    You do this by identifying your triggers and following strategies that dampen inflammation and boost immune *regulation.* How you do this makes up the bulk of my content on my site (drknews.com) and in my books (on amazon).
