Dr. Ruscio’s Weekly Tip

In this week’s tip, we discussed the healing benefits of bone broth.


Latest Research

A systematic review with meta-analysis has shown FMT to be a viable therapy for ulcerative colitis with minimal side effects.

Meta-analysis showing probiotics are a helpful treatment for IBS.  Dr. R’s note:  I am not sure why some gastros still don’t like to use probios for IBS but are fine with Rifaximin for IBS?

Could parasitic amoebas account for the microbiota changes seen in hunger-gatherers?  A recent study suggests it may.

A recent paper suggests it is not a good idea to delay the introduction of potential food allergens into your infant’s diet.

“We found that higher levels reported sun exposure, rather than 25(OH)D levels, were associated with less depressive symptoms and levels of fatigue. The role of UV or light therapy will need to be evaluated in randomized controlled trials to confirm an effect on these symptoms in MS.”

  1. I guess pink krispies could be a healthy snack if you have a robust metabolism and are underweight. There wasn’t information to verify this – such as carb to fiber ratio. I try to stay away from foods enriched with folic acid – a synthetic form of folate that uses up all the receptors leaving you with unmetabolized folic acid which lowers your killer-T cells – according to Ben Lynch, MD. Here is one you tube – very short – on folic acid.

    1. Hi Julia,
      I would not be overly concerned about occasional folic acid intake. This is an issue that has been WAY over hyped. Relax a little and don’t overthink this 🙂
