Inflammation-Dr David Seaman and Cellular Expansion-Patti McNulty

Sunday, February 12th, 2017

DrDSeaman

My next show on Saturday at 12 noon PST will include the following guests.

Dr. David Seaman was the first person to author a scientific paper that specifically hypothesized that diets can be pro-inflammatory or anti-inflammatory. Since that paper was published in 2002, thousands of papers and numerous books have been published on the topic of diet and inflammation, which is now accepted as mainstream.

Dr. Seaman is a Professor of Clinical Sciences in the Chiropractic Medicine program at National University of Health Sciences in Pinellas Park, Fl. He has a BS from Rutgers University in 1982; a Doctor of Chiropractic from New York Chiropractic College in 1986; and a MS in Bio/nutrition from the University of Bridgeport in 1991

While in clinical practice in the late 1980’s, he became aware of the developing research that linked nutrition to the inflammatory process and noticed that appropriate dietary changes could significantly improve various musculoskeletal and visceral conditions. Based on this experience, he began to focus on nutritional approaches for inflammation/pain control and has followed the related scientific literature ever since. This led to the publication of the first book on nutrition for pain and inflammation, which was followed by many articles and book chapters devoted to this topic. His educational efforts resulted in being awarded the 2006 Academician of the Year by the American Chiropractic Association.

Patti McNulty began her education with four years of intensive training in a combined mental health/addictions and family counseling program. Subsequently, she spent twelve years providing both inpatient and outpatient addiction services to a range of psychiatric hospitals. She was then the primary Employee Assistance Program counselor for JFK and LaGuardia Airports in New York, where employees could receive counseling and addictions treatment on-site.

In 1996, she was awarded a New York State citation for her work with the survivors and employees involved in the Flight 800 plane crash that same year. Her work experience pulled her in the direction of not only further addictions treatment work, but also in trauma work in addicted populations.

In 2005, she became a holistic studies practitioner, completed two graduate programs at the School of Vanati in Pittsburgh, and is presently involved in the extension graduate program.

Patti started working at Serenity Acres Treatment Center in January of 2013, as a licensed Certified Associate Counselor for Alcohol and Drugs (CAC-AD), and provides addictions counseling, family education, and holistic therapy services to her clients.

Can Coffee Help Prevent Obesity?

Wednesday, November 26th, 2014

A new study published in Pharmecutical Research concluded that a chemical commonly found in coffee may help prevent some of the damaging effects of obesity. Specifically, chlorogenic acid (CGA) found in coffee significantly reduces insulin resistance and accumulation of fat in the livers of mice who were fed a high fat diet. This compound that is found in great abundance in coffee is also found in fruits and vegetables like apples, pears, tomatoes and blueberries.

Two side effects of obesity in addition to weight geinare increased insulin resistance and the accumulation of fat in the liver that can lead to diabetes and poor liver function.  To test the effects of CGA a group of mice were fed a high fat iet for 15 wqeeks and were also injected with a CGA solution twice weekly. Findings showed that the CGA not only effectively prevented weight gaij, but also helped maintaihn normal blood pressure and healthy liver composition. The researchers said “CGA is a powerful antioxidant that reducesinflammation….A lot of evidence suggests that obesity-related diseases are caused by chronic inflammation. so if we can control that, we can hopefully ofset some of the negative effects of excessive weight gain.”

Do Women Working Irregular Night Shifts Have an Increase Risk of Type 2 Diabetes?

Wednesday, December 14th, 2011

A new study published online in the journal PLoS Medicine concluded that women who work an irregular shift schedule including three or more night shifts a month in addition to days and evenings in the same month may have an increased risk of developing type 2 diabetes when compared to women who work only days or evenings.

Researchers analyzed data on move than 69,260 U.S. women ages 42 to 67, tracked between 1988 and 2008 and another 107,915 women ages 25 to 42 tracked between 1989 and 2007. The study subjects were part of the Nurses Health Study Part I and Part II respectively. Around 60% of the nurses performed more than one year of irregular shifts at the baseline. About 11% of the nurses in Study I had more than 10 years of irregular night shifts and in study II about 4% worked more than 10 years of the irregular night shift. Researchers found that the longer women worked on irregular night shifts the higher their probability of type 2 diabetes. Thus, those working 3 to 9 years had a 20% increased risk; those working 10 to 19 years had a 40% risk, and those working irregular shifts over 20 years had 68% risk for type 2 diabetes. When their data was adjusted for body weight the increased risk continued but at a lower risk level. The author said the increased risk seen was partly a result of increased weight. However, The awareness of the relationship of increased risk for diabetes among irregular night shift workers shows the importance of lifestyle and diet changes. The researchers also noted that these findings need to be confirmed in men and ethnic groups.

Can You Reduce the Risk of Diabetes by Eating Fish? Find Out What the Latest Research Says. .

Wednesday, November 23rd, 2011

A new study published in Nutricion Hospitalaria journal carried out in a Spanish population concluded that eating lots of cured meats is associated with greater weight gain and a higher obesity rate, whereas the consumption of fish is linked to a lower glucose concentration and a smaller risk of developing diabetes. The study was conducted in the Vanemcian community of 945 people consisting of 340 men and 605 women between age 55 and 80 with a high cardiovascular risk. Understanding the correlation between the Mediterranean diet and its association with cardiovascular risk factors and the dietary patterns regarding meat and fish consumption were the goals of the study Researchers found that consuming red meat by the study population occurred on average of once a day and that is high compared to dietary recommendations. It is believed this pattern may be related to weight-loss diets that recommend eating grilled veal. Eating excessive amounts of red meat is associated with higher cardiovascular risk, higher blood pressure, diabetes and a moderate decrease in life expectancy mainly die to cancer and heart disease. On the other hand, eating fish has a health benefit for the heart.
Although this was a cross sectional study that not determine a causal effect, the researchers confirm that similar studies show that the consumption of fish is associated with a lower risk of developing type 2 diabetes. There were gender differences in that men more frequently ate a high intake of red and cured meat whereas women ate more white meat, especially chicken, and turkey. However, there were no significant differences in intake of fish between the two groups but women did tend to score higher on healthy diets than men.
