In Case You Missed It

On Monday, we discussed if adrenal support can help with healing your gut.

On Wednesday’s podcast release,  we answered your questions about cholesterol, what a healthy diet really looks like, if eating fat makes you fat, and more with Dr. Mark Hyman.


Dr. Ruscio’s Weekly Tip

This week we look at how healing your gut and supporting your adrenals often go hand-in-hand.


Latest Research

Topical magnesium may help fibromyalgia.

Coffee consumption may decrease endometrial cancer risk, according to a large population study.  Yay for coffee!

Oral infections may play a role in inflammation and carbiometabolic diseases.  Remember the gut starts at the mouth.

A recent meta-analysis found that high vitamin D levels (over 70 ng/mL) are safe.

Higher brain antibodies found in those with schizophrenia and mood disorders.

Having SIBO with both hydrogen and methane positive may increase energy absorption and lead to weight gain.

  1. Talking about vitD level, what’s your opinion on the level among different ethnic groups? If I remember correctly I one heard that some study shows Asian tend to have lower level and that’s normal for them. PS. I’m half Asian half European, living in Asia, getting a lot of sun, and my level is still somewhat low (~20) Thanks!

    1. HI Rob,
      Great question. I like to see between 40-50 ng/Ml, maybe a little higher for AI conditions BUT mega-doses do not appear to be needed according to the only study that I know of that looked antibodies after VD supplementation; a favorable effect was noted after using 1200-2000 IUs (I believe) per day in those with Hashimoto’s. A review post of this study in on our site. I haven’t heard much showing different ethnic groups need different levels but skin tone does increase the time needed in the sun to get a vitamin D response. I would follow the guidelines we laid out in one of our previous posts on how to optimize vitamin D levels through sun exposure. Try to search box 🙂
      Hope this helps!
