Hypercoagulation- Another Complex Root Cause of Interstitial Cystitis

Hypercoagulation- Another Complex Root Cause of Interstitial Cystitis

Recently it has come to my attention that there is a strong connection to fibrin, hypercoagulation, biofilms and the embedded infection associated with IC.  It is a complex interaction of genetics and environmental influences that leads to this condition.  One very strong environmental influence is are infections such as viruses or even their remedies. The [...]
Histamine Intolerance

Histamine Intolerance

What is histamine? Histamine is a signaling molecule that is used by your brain and also by your entire body (Anderson, 2023). Histamine is a biogenic amine that occurs to various degrees in many foods. Histamine (2-[4-imidazolyl]ethylamine) was discovered in 1910 by Dale and Laidlaw.  It was identified as a mediator of anaphylactic reactions in 1932 (Maintz and Novak [...]
Type 1 Hyperoxaluria- AGXT

Type 1 Hyperoxaluria- AGXT

About thirty to forty percent of oxalate comes from the diet and the rest comes from what your body makes itself.  This is of course, my opinion and of many other functional doctors I have consulted with over the years. Oxalic acid in the diet is first converted to glycolate, then glyoxylate, and then at [...]
What Is Epigenetics?

What Is Epigenetics?

Geek corner During the past two decades, there has been a rapid increase in studies that report associations with gene polymorphisms, nutrition and disease risk (Burdge, Hoile, & Lillycrop, 2012).  This is a paradigm shift from traditional nutritional recommendations that have been based on age, sex, and pregnancy.  The advances in the association with epigenetics [...]
Nutrigenomics

Nutrigenomics

The rapidly expanding discoveries in the fields of nutrigenomics and nutrigenetics are transforming the field of nutrition and health education.  As a health educator, I plan to use this information to empower and enlighten clients to make informed decisions on their lifestyle choices.  It also will help me become a proficient “translator” in the language [...]
Nutrigenetics and Nutrigenomics

Nutrigenetics and Nutrigenomics

There is a rapidly growing world of epigenetics that is going to completely transform your health in ways we cannot even imagine. The Human Genome Project was launched in 1990 with the goal of identifying and mapping out every single gene in the human genetic code. When the human genome was completed in 2003, entire [...]
