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.

P McNulty

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. She also runs her own business, Healing Branches, in Severna Park, Md. At Healing Branches, Patti practices Cellular Expansion and Healing Energy Medicine—a form of hands on bodywork that heals through the cells for optimal health and wellness.

Can Individuals Control Inflammation in the Body and Reduce Chronic Illnesses?

Friday, August 14th, 2015

Logos 005In a new study published in the British Journal of Nutrition by a coalition of experts concluded that unresolved inflammation response is likely to be involved from the early stages of disease and controlling it is crucial to human health. They also say nutrition can influence inflammatory processes and help reduce chronic disease risk. Researchers recognize inflammation is a normal process of host defense but that chronic inflammation can lead to a range of chronic illnesses. Thus, prevention or control of low-grade inflammation can be a target of healthy food or food ingredients. The research team looked at new approaches to deal with inflammation in the body and to help quantify how much diet can positively modulate inflammation.

Some of their conclusions follow: 1) individuals with  a deficiency or excess of certain micronutrients such as folate, vitamin B12, vitamin B6, vitamin E, Vitamin B1 and/or zinc  may lead to an ineffective or excessive inflammatory response, 2) high consumption of fat or glucose may cause post-prandial inflammation following meals and may lead to diabetes and cardiovascular disease, and 3) the western style diet high in fat and simple sugars and often poor in specific micro nutrients has been linked to the increase prevalence of diseases that have a strong immunological and autoimmune component, including allergies, food allergies, atopic dermatitis, and obesity.
