High Intensity Health with Mike Mutzel, MS

A pioneer in the field of integrative medicine, James M. Greenblatt, MD, has treated patients with mood disorders and complex eating disorders since 1990. After receiving his medical degree and completing his psychiatry residency at George Washington University, Dr. Greenblatt went on to complete a fellowship in child and adolescent psychiatry at Johns Hopkins Medical School.

On today’s podcast, he reminds us that violent criminals commonly have low levels of lithium in their bodies.

Scientists have proposed that lithium deficiency may increase aggression. When people hear “lithium,” many think of lithium carbonate, the high-dose, prescription-only drug that’s used to treat bipolar disorder, but lithium could also be one of the most important (but often neglected) minerals under discussion in the narrative of brain health and Alzheimer’s disease prevention.

Dr. Greenblatt says a few milligrams per day of lithium can do remarkable things for the brain, including:

Rodney Dietert, PhD is a prominent researcher in the field of immunotoxicology--how toxins affect the immune system and author of The Human Superorganism.

After decades of studying how toxins affect health, he realized toxicology models didn’t tell the whole story about disease risk—there was something missing, he thought.

While lying awake one night he realized that gut microbes, too,  affect how toxins impact the immune system and our health.

“The microbes are the first ones to come in contact with these environmental toxins,” he says.
So he’s been urging medical professionals and toxicologist to rethink their models to include the microbiome.

He shares more details about toxins and microbes in summary of his life’s work, a new book called The Human Superorganism.

Scientist Says Body Fat Is Actually Protective?

About a year ago, I sat down with MIT researcher Dr. Stephanie Seneff to talk about glyphosate and autism.

Our discussion motivated me to start growing my own vegetables. Even organic food contains significant levels of this herbicide that has been linked to many health ailments.

Recent research shows that this substance has made it into our water supplies and rainwater.

Dr. Seneff also brought up an interesting finding: the autism epidemic parallels the increase in the consumption of Roundup Ready crops.

We often hear scientists blame sugar consumption and low-fat diets for the increasing epidemic, but Stephanie Seneff’s research suggests that environmental toxins and glyphosate are hidden drivers of the obesity and autism epidemic. otherwise.

She says that body fat is protective against environmental toxins, and this is why:
