Dr. Ruscio’s Wrap Up #114

In Case You Missed It

On Monday, we discussed chronically low vitamin D and the infection connection.

On Wednesday’s podcast release, we spoke with Dr. Steven Gundry and discussed why a low lectin diet is the evolution of the gluten free diet.


Dr. Ruscio’s Weekly Tip

In this week’s tip, we discussed if your chronically low vitamin D are due to an infection.


Latest Research

Intermittent fasting showing impressive results for fat loss without muscle loss.

Those with IBS found to have a different microbiota.

Deep breathing may help with digestive motility.

A meta-analysis has shown that those with celiac disease are more likely to have thyroid disease.

“None of the currently available food allergy tests adequately predict food triggers for EoE, especially in adults. Elemental diet (exclusive feeding with aminoacid-based formulas) and empiric six-food elimination diet, withdrawing cow´s milk, wheat, egg, soy, nuts and fish/seafood for 6 weeks, have consistently shown the best cure rates.”

  1. Hi Dr Ruscio–
    I just want to take a moment and thank you for your great work and efforts to educate us all on the importance of a healthy microbiome…

    I have learned so much from your Podcasts and if I were in your area you would be my Doc. I just found out after 32 years of poor health that I have CVID! Total immunoglobulins showed everything low– and even IGE. The only approach to this rare immune disorder seems to be Allopathic– and I have had now 3 IVIG’s, so my IGG’s are up from 406 to 1017. NO ONE is approaching this from a holistic perspective– and as I have been using a holistic approach now for 32 years to deal w/ the HM’s, the MCS, CFS, MAJOR gut issues and parasites– I have not had the typical upper respiratory infections that usually define CVID. We are known as Zebras– so rare– and I am a Kick Ass subspecies– because I also have OSA, Lyme, Mold and biotoxin illness, a TBI, SIBO and disabling cervical arthritis. But I am a real success story I find out now– because I am still alive. One of the things that has held me together is 22 years of yoga– and yes deep breathing. I created a breathing prompt which improved my PFT 3 x over baseline in 4 years– it brings you into parasympathetic. We know so little about CVID– but I suspect it is all about the microbiome–as it has been described for about 60 years– which is about the time that women stopped nursing. I wish we could you on this track to lead the CVID community into the holistic/integrated track it needs to be in. Its just one in 30,000 people– not sure worth your time. But you do like to look at everything and maybe the rest of the world can learn how to avoid it for future generations. Thanks again for your A+ work!
    Oh– one more thing– do you have any ideas on any connection between fat malabsorption issues causing vertigo?
    The wrong fats or no bile acids will give me vertigo. Maybe others have this too and worth your time…

  3. Thanks for the update on research.
    However, I wish you would mention that “intermittent fasting found to be useful etc” in MALES. I am not so sure it works well in females, particularly those with HPA dysregulation.
