Strategies for Balancing Female Hormones

Hormone imbalances can affect millions of women. It’s not just an issue for women transitioning into menopause. The impact on health can be significant leading to anxiety and depression, fatigue, osteoporosis, poor sleep and overall lack of a quality life. Many factors can lead to hormone imbalances such as poor nutrition, chronic stress, adrenal and thyroid dysfunction. This lecture by Dr. Tranchitella will discuss various strategies for balancing female hormones.

Autism and Mold Exposure: Why Testing for Mycotoxins is so Important

Individuals with autism often have underlying digestive, detoxification and immune system imbalances. These systems can be negatively influenced by mold exposure. Mold toxins (aka. mycotoxins) are being shown as a significant factor in autism and could explain, in part, the four to one ratio of males to females getting a diagnosis.

Fatigue and the Chronic Stress Response: A Functional Medicine Approach

Fatigue is one of the most common health complaints. For some individuals their fatigue may have an easy explanation such as poor diet, lack of sleep or exercise. However, other medical factors should be investigated as well. Chronic stress is often a major component in fatigue and this lecture will discuss how functional medicine can help.

Priming Detoxification Pathways for Optimal Health

Detoxification is a biochemical process that involves breaking down toxic substances into less harmful chemicals. Much of this is done through the liver detoxification phases, but it is important to also have proper digestive function, including the small intestine and large intestine. This lecture will explain various steps necessary to support healthy detoxification of the liver and bowel.

Small Intestine Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO) and Essential Laboratory Testing

Small Intestine Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO) is assessed through hydrogen and methane breath testing. However, this only defines the problem. Other laboratory tests are important as well to determine causative or contributing factors to SIBO. This lecture will discuss additional lab tests to consider for advanced workup for SIBO.

The Dangers of Mold and Mycotoxin Exposure

Mycotoxins are chemicals produced from certain molds that can have significant adverse health effects such as allergies, autoimmunity, liver and kidney damage and brain and nervous system problems. Some mycotoxins are even carcinogenic. This lecture will cover some of the basics of mold toxicity and the new markers found on the GPL-MycoTOX Profile.

Utilizing the OAT to Personalize Mold Treatment

Mycotoxins are the toxic metabolites produced by certain types of fungi. These small molecules from mold are often carried on dust particles or food or are present in water-damaged buildings and homes. Common symptoms of mycotoxin exposure are fatigue, headaches, rashes, food sensitivities, joint pain, and cough. Many patients suffering from chronic illnesses do not even know that they have been exposed to mycotoxins.

The Key Elements of Small Intestine Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO) Testing and Treatment

Small Intestine Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO) is a chronic digestive disorder affecting millions of individuals worldwide. The problem is conventional treatments don’t often lead elimination of this problem. This presentation will explore why just using antibiotics is not the best answer and how SIBO needs to be treated comprehensively.

Lesser Known Markers on the Organic Acids Test (OAT)

The Organic Acids Test (OAT) has over 70 markers linked to various biochemical pathways, as well as toxic compounds linked to candida, bacteria, etc. There is often a lot of attention given to the most commonly seen markers on the OAT such as arabinose from candida and high oxalates. This lecture will focus on some of the other ‘lesser known’ markers such as mandelic, kynurenic and those in the amino acids metabolites sections and others.

The Organic Acids Test: Key Fungal Markers for Mycotoxins from Mold

The Organic Acids Test (OAT) has many markers indicating invasive yeast and candida overgrowth. There are also markers on the OAT specific for mold exposure, digestive mold overgrowth and potential toxicity from mold toxins called Mycotoxins. This lecture will discuss these markers, as well as correlate information to the Great Plains Laboratory Myco-TOX profile.

How Toxins Adversely Affect the Methylation Cycle

The methylation cycle is an important biochemical system linked to brain, nervous system and immune function, cardiovascular health, energy production and detoxification. There are key components in the methylation cycle, that when damaged, can contribute to a host of chronic health disorders. This lecture will focus on the adverse effects certain toxins can cause with methylation.

Organic Acids and Mycotoxins: Brand New Information About the Correlations Between Mold and Various Chronic Illnesses

Since releasing our GPL-MycoTOX Profile, we’ve been able to help accurately assess exposure to several common mycotoxins from mold. We have also now discovered strong correlations between specific markers on the Organic Acids Test and mycotoxin exposure. In this webinar, Dr. Shaw will review those correlations, including evidence in the literature linking them to health conditions such as autism and Parkinson’s disease. He will also discuss a recent case of autism that was rapidly recovered after antifungal treatment.

William Shaw received his Ph.D. in biochemistry and human physiology from the Medical University of South Carolina and is board certified in clinical chemistry and toxicology. Dr. Shaw has supervised large endocrinology, nutritional biochemistry, toxicology, and immunology departments in positions at the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and Smith Kline Laboratories. As the Director of The Great Plains Laboratory, Inc. in Lenexa, Kansas, he specializes in providing diagnostic tools aiding in the diagnosis and treatment of mental health disorders, mitochondrial disorders, neurological diseases, chronic health issues, and immune diseases.

Adrenal Fatigue: More Than an Adrenal Problem

Fatigue and exhaustion are common problems for many people. Often these are assumed to be related to adrenal fatigue. However, this term has been controversial and does not fully capture the full-spectrum of problems related to adrenal imbalances. This lecture will explain why adrenal fatigue needs to be viewed in a broader context.

GPL-MycoTOX: A Brand New Urine Test for Mycotoxin Exposure

Mycotoxins from mold are some of the most prevalent toxins in the environment. They are metabolites produced by fungi like mold, which can infest buildings, homes, vehicles, and foodstuffs. A majority of mycotoxin exposures are through food ingestion or airborne exposure. Fungi are able to grow on almost any surface, especially if the environment is warm and wet. These fungi then release mycotoxins into the environment causing symptoms of many different chronic diseases. Diseases and symptoms linked to mycotoxin exposure include fever, pneumonia-like symptoms, heart disease, rheumatic disease, asthma, sinusitis, cancer, memory loss, vision loss, chronic fatigue, skin rashes, depression, ADHD, anxiety, and liver damage.
