Dr. Ruscio’s Weekly Tip

In this week’s tip, we discussed the cause to your anxiety and depression.


Latest Research

In rare cases, cytomegalovirus can cause colitis.

Another review showing probiotics are at least worth trying in IBS. “…shown to improve global symptoms, bloating and flatulence.”

Gut-brain or brain-gut, what’s more important? A recent study suggests gut-brain, meaning the gut has more impact on the brain than the brain does on the gut.  I think this is very important because I am concerned that in the functional medicine field the brain-gut connection has been way overstated.

Probiotic supplementation may help prevent fungal infection in preterm neonates.

Guidelines for interpreting lactulose SIBO breath testing.  Summary: 80 minutes might be a better cutoff time than 100 minutes for hydrogen.

  1. Hello! I really like all of the material you are putting out, and your podcast is now my favorite! Which is saying a lot for me, because I am a pretty hard core Art of Manliness podcast fan.

    A couple of questions: first, any ideas on when the book will be out? I am greatly looking forward to it.

    Second: can you recommend how to work with a conventional medicine doctor, or find one, in different parts of the country? I cannot afford to go down the SIBO path outside of my insurance provider.

    Thanks!

    1. Thanks Delores!!
      Well it feels like the finish line keeps running away from me on this one, but late this year looks doable. I did a podcast entitled something along the lines of ‘how to find a good FM doctor’, I would search for that on my site. That should get you started!
      Hope this helps!

  2. Thanks for update. Regarding the topic on the gut brain axis and depression, my personal experience is that for a true picture of ones well being, the spiritual aspect of our life is of equal importance along with the psychological and physical aspects of life. It can give a deep meaning to your unique circumstances and open up a positive, hopeful spirit to win. This can have a huge impact on our minds and ability to heal. So whilst there are such valid things as more clinical root causes of illness, I believe it’s important to dig even deeper to find root causes within your whole life which can be empowering.
    Not meaning to be patronising, just expressing my view in hope that it can encourage others.
    Best wishes,
