How Functional Medicine Came to the Military

by health and nutrition advice journalist
Master Sergeant Geoff Dardia has a no-legs plan. He’s served as a U.S. Army Green Beret since 2004. If he loses his legs to an explosion or gunfire, he’s prepared to build his own “robot legs” so he can stay on active duty. This is something he learned from his Special Operations colleague Chuck, who served for 10 years on a leg he designed himself. Because of the deep trust Dardia shares with his fellow soldiers, he says he sleeps better on deployment — even when that means lying under a truck, in the field, protected only by his mates […]

by health and nutrition advice journalist
“People are angry, and in some cases, people are dying, from lack of access to affordable insulin,” notes a press release of Colorado State University (see below). DIY biohackers associated with the Open Insulin project are striving to change that. “Key drugs are still too expensive,” said renowned synthetic biologist Jean Peccoud. “People don’t have access to them, so what if they can make it themselves? What do we do about that?” Peccoud notes that the US regulatory environment, not patent exclusivity, is the main barrier to insulin affordability. Peccoud further elaborates in an essay published in The Conversation with […]

Talking about immunity in the thick of a pandemic is no easy feat. Our minds are preoccupied by pathogens and infectious disease, the scourge of COVID-19 still playing itself out on our screens. Many individuals are focused on ways to support the immune system. People are eager for vaccines and drugs and quick cures.

The head of the emergency department at a Manhattan hospital committed suicide after spending days on the front lines of the coronavirus battle, her family said Monday. “She tried to do her job, and it killed her,” Dr. Philip Breen told the New York Times of his physician daughter, Lorna Breen, who had been medical director of the NewYork-Presbyterian Allen Hospital amid the pandemic.

But he said that the last time they spoke, she told him how excruciating it was to have to continually watch contagion […]

by health and nutrition advice journalist

(1, 2, 3) While type 2 diabetes was once considered a “disease of affluence,” its numbers are exploding in middle- and low-income countries, mainly due to the global spread of the nutrient-poor Western diet. (4) Type 2 diabetes is also no longer limited to middle-aged and older adults; children […]

by health and nutrition advice journalist
