  • Genomics, Sambucas, and Andrographis – COVID-19

    David Perlmutter M.D. – Empowering Neurologist: The food, the facts, the science to control your genetic destiny. One of the questions on everyone’s minds has to do with why some people have such a tough time with this COVID-19 infection. Yes, we know that the elderly and people with underlying medical conditions are more likely to have serious complications, but we certainly see plenty of seemingly healthy individuals with significant issues as well. Might there be genomic influences on outcome? It looks like this may well be the case. And this is the subject of our discussion with Harvard-trained Dr. Sharon Hausman-Cohen on The Empowering Neurologist. In addition to our review of the role of genomics as it relates to a person’s response to coronavirus infection, Dr. Hausman-Cohen reveals some very interesting data about the role of two natural supplements, Sambucas ­and Andrographis, in immunity as well as viral infections specifically.

  • Immune System Rejuvenation – What Can We Learn from Senotherapeutics

    David Perlmutter M.D. – Empowering Neurologist: The food, the facts, the science to control your genetic destiny. Biological aging is clearly an important risk factor for many of our most common chronic degenerative conditions like diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, cardiovascular disease, and even cancer. So much so that these maladies are often described as “age-related diseases.” One of the most important contributors to disease processes associated with biological aging is something called “cellular senescence.” This term essentially refers to aging at a cellular level with loss of function and even the ability to divide. There may be an upside to a cell losing its ability to replicate when we consider cancer. On the other hand, when considering immunity for example, we depend on a constant repopulation of functioning cells in order to optimize the ability of our immune systems. There is an active process within our bodies whereby we are able Read More
