Key Take-Aways


Psychedelic Update
Practitioners are starting to open up about using drugs like ketamine, psilocybin and MDMA for mental health treatments. Karolyn interviews Emily Whinkin, ND who covers the latest research and clinical guidance on the therapeutic use of psychedelics.

Large-scale study by Dr Paul Anderson, NMD, provides new evidence for IV NAC administration for acute and chronic lung conditions. This study reinforces the safety and utility of IV NAC mucolytics to improve sputum viscosity to improve bronchial function and oxygen saturation.

Gut Brain Axis
The gut microbiome has a role in mental health and brain disorders like depression, ADHD, Alzheimer's and Parkinson’s. New research reveals we have at least 50% fewer microbial species than our ancestors. 

Antibiotics, pesticides and the modern diet diminish microbiome diversity. Fecal transplants for mental health disorders are in early trials.
