Lori R.

It’s so good to hear stories like Lori’s, about how Grain Brain has brought answers and hope to those who have spent so many years looking for both. – Dr. Perlmutter My husband and I were in a weather-related car accident in January 2000 and both experienced severe closed head trauma. We lived in Pennsylvania at the time. By the grace of God, we recovered miraculously – although quickly realized (and accepted) that the damage done to our brains was going result in life-long implications for us. We made the decision to start a family a few years ago and have my husband be a stay-at-home dad; in part because we strongly believed in the value of having a parent at home with the child, but also because he struggled to maintain employment. He’s done a great job, but it is clear to both of us that our head injuries continue to cause daily challenges for us. With a young family, and ourselves aging, we are extremely concerned about the likelihood of dementia setting in at a young age for us and are desperate for support. I saw Dr. Perlmutter on Dr. Oz last month and was compelled to buy Grain Brain. I have always been health conscious, and my diet wasn’t too far off from what he was recommending. The biggest change I needed to make to fully align it was to completely eradicate carbohydrates and add fat more regularly. I have experienced multiple improvements since doing so and must say I ...

Publication date: Available online 19 February 2020Source: Microbial PathogenesisAuthor(s): Ali Dalir Ghaffari, Abdolhossein Dalimi, Fatemeh Ghaffarifar, Majid PirestaniAbstractToxoplasmosis, caused by Toxoplasma gondii, is a common parasitic disease, affecting almost one-third of the world's population. Currently, there are no effective treatments for inhibiting the formation of chronic tissue cysts in infected hosts. Thus, the production of appropriate vaccines against this pathogen is an important goal to avoid toxoplasmosis. considering the role of rhoptry antigens like ROP16 in virulence and satisfactory immunogenicit...

Authors: Petrossian RA, Dynda D, Delfino K, El-Zawahry A, McVary KT Abstract INTRODUCTION: The role of organized sleep in overall health and quality-of-life (QoL) is critical. Nocturia necessarily disrupts the normal sleep cycle and negatively impacts one's health, work productivity, and QoL. We investigated, for the first time in an exploratory pilot, the effectiveness of mirabegron for improving sleep disturbance and nocturia. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This was a prospective, open-label 12-week trial evaluating the efficacy of mirabegron in 34 men and women with disordered sleep and lower urinary tract symptoms ...

CONCLUSIONS: Care teams need to offer opportunities to elicit patients' knowledge and fears, dispel myths, forge connections with other patients, and visit the dialysis unit before transition to alleviate anxiety. Interventions that facilitate a sense of control should be grounded in the meaning that the disorder has for the person and how it impacts their sense of self.

It’s hardly news that the gastrointestinal tract is important to human health: It transports food from the mouth to the stomach, converts it into absorbable nutrients and stored energy, and shuttles waste back out of the body. If you don’t properly nourish yourself, you don’t live. It’s that simple. But in recent years, scientists have discovered that the GI system has an even bigger, more complex job than previously appreciated. It’s been linked to numerous aspects of health that have seemingly nothing to do with digestion, from immunity to emotional stress to chronic illnesses, including can...

By Brandon R. Peters, MD As my 81-year-old grandma likes to remind me on occasion, "It's hell to get old." More than a nuisance, the cumulative decline that comes with aging can significantly compromise one's quality of life and health. What if some of the problems so often associated with growing older didn't need to occur? Better yet, what if some of these physical and mental impairments could be reversed? Consider the role of sleep apnea as an unexpected contributor to many ailments erroneously attributed to aging and the reversals possible with effective treatment. Sleep Changes with Age It is clear that s...

Growing up a musically-obsessed child in the 80's, Daryl Hall was one of my biggest inspirations. A masterful, inventive songwriter with an ocean of soul, he set me on the path to being an artist, to never waste a word, and to sing because I mean it. With six number ones and five additional top ten hits throughout the 70's and 80's Daryl Hall and John Oates are the number one duo in music history. Still at the top of his game at 69 years old, Daryl has won legions of new fans with his hit MTV Live show Live From Daryl's House. In February of 2015, at my very sickest from chronic Lyme and Bartonella, after it was missed b...

By Brandon R. Peters, M.D. The news was enough to give you indigestion: Some of the over-the-counter and prescription medications most widely used to treat heartburn and acid reflux are linked to the development of dementia. The research suggesting a possible association is the latest in a string of implicated drugs over the past few years, including medications taken to treat anxiety, seizures, insomnia, and allergies. What is going on? Before emptying out the medicine cabinet, take a moment to consider the role of untreated obstructive sleep apnea. Scientific research can be difficulty to contextualize, especially when i...
