Dr. Ruscio’s Weekly Tip

In this week’s tip, we discussed practical tips for healthy, stress-free eating.


Latest Research

Boulardii when combined with standard drug therapy shows promise in treating Crohn’s disease.

The probiotics E. Coli Nissle and VSL3 show promise for ulcerative colitis.

It appears a slight increase in TSH is normal as we age. Also, that higher free T4 might not be good; more isn’t better.

A recent study found that H. Pylori infection was not associated with increased risk of Hashimoto’s.

High homocysteine may be caused by suboptimal thyroid function and reduced by thyroid medication.

  1. Two Studies: “Normal” Higher TSH in Aging Men vs Hypothyroidism increases Homocysteine
    Since Hypothyroidism increases Homocysteine – which contributes to cardiovascular diseases and dementias – we must give attention to the level of Free T3 – the active form of thyroid needed by every cell in the human body – as the more accurate measure of true Hypothyroidism.
