Ryan Lazarus, DC, MS, CNS, IFMCP; Clinical Director/Owner Lazarus Wellness There is a silent epidemic in the United States. It has increased three-fold and affects 50-70 million people. There are over 100 types of it: autoimmune disease (AI). Dr. Lazarus examines the overwhelming impact AI is having on people all over our country. He provides clinical tools to help care for these patients and explains how a Functional and personalized clinical approach may be uniquely designed to provide support and relief to…

Dominic D'Agostino, PhD; Assoc. Professor, Dept. of Molecular Pharmacology and Physiology, University of South Florida Dominic D’Agostino, PhD is a researcher in neuroscience, molecular pharmacology, and physiology who has conducted mechanistic and clinical research on the ketogenic diet and its health benefits. The ketogenic diet is a high-fat, moderate-protein, low-carbohydrate dietary approach associated with meat eaters, but is the ketogenic diet feasible for vegetarians and even vegans? In this talk Dr. D’Agostino argues that anyone can potentially benefit from the…

Dominic D’Agostino, PhD; Assoc. Professor, Dept. of Molecular Pharmacology and Physiology, University of South Florida The ketogenic diet was originally studied and used in patients with seizure disorders, such as epilepsy. The ketogenic diet was shown to be superior to anticonvulsant drug therapies for seizure reduction or remission in a large portion this patient population. The underlying mechanisms mediating the profound impact of the ketogenic diet on seizure disorders include the suppression of oxidative stress and inflammation, in addition to…

Dominic D'Agostino, PhD; Assoc. Professor, Dept. of Molecular Pharmacology and Physiology, University of South Florida In this MAPS talk, Dr. Dominic D’Agostino examines the role of the ketogenic diet in metabolic health optimization. We know that metabolic health correlates with overall health in the body, so by optimizing metabolic health, defined by a set of biomarkers that reliably predict the physiological and metabolic state, we can potentially help delay the onset of many age-related chronic diseases. Dr. D’Agostino explains how…

Dominic D’Agostino, PhD; Assoc. Professor, Dept. of Molecular Pharmacology and Physiology, University of South Florida Dominic D’Agostino, PhD is an expert on ketogenic science, having conducted research on the cellular, molecular, and physiological impacts of ketosis on the body. In part 2 of a 3-part discussion, Dr. D’Agostino examines the following facets of the ketogenic diet: Common myths surrounding the ketogenic diet Ketone testing How long should a patient be on the ketogenic diet? Nutritional ketosis and supplementation What conditions…

Dominic D'Agostino, PhD; Assoc. Professor, Dept. of Molecular Pharmacology and Physiology, University of South Florida Dominic D’Agostino, PhD has conducted research on the ketogenic diet to ascertain the cellular, molecular, and physiological impacts that ketosis and its metabolic transition have on the body. In part 1 of a 3-part discussion series, Dr. D’Agostino provides research and clinical evidence to answer the following questions: What is the ketogenic diet? What are the optimal measurement indicators for optimal ketosis? What is the…

Susan Blum, MD, MPH; Functional Internist, Founder/Director, Blum Center for Health There are many types of arthritis including rheumatoid arthritis, which is an autoimmune disease. Common themes exist within autoimmune disease, including the presence of inflammation and presentation as a systemic condition. Dr. Blum discusses the health origins of arthritis and reviews research on the gut-joint health connection that plays a lead role in arthritis pathology. Dr. Blum explores the different types of arthritis and how to treat them with…

Scott Bergman, DC, CTN, DAAIM; Director, Chiro Kinetics Over 50% of US adults report experiencing pain. Musculoskeletal conditions are a major pain culprit. When the musculoskeletal conditions plus their comorbid conditions (e.g. obesity, diabetes, and heart disease) are considered, the associated costs are estimated to be $874 billion annually. Dr. Bergman explores a common, underlying cause: inflammation. He contrasts current conventional treatments and their side effects with a novel healing approach for patients suffering from pain. Watch the full MAPS…

In Q&A Part 3, Dominic D’Agostino, PhD explains a conundrum: the evidence basis and clinical benefits of the ketogenic diet for certain chronic disease states are well known, however, there are many individuals who are unable or unwilling to implement a ketogenic diet. To address this issue, Dr. D’Agostino and others are researching the impact of exogenous ketone supplementation on raising ketone levels in the body. Dr. D’Agostino shares the latest research in this area and provides his expert perspective…

Dominic D’Agostino, PhD; Assoc. Professor, Dept. of Molecular Pharmacology and Physiology, University of South Florida In Q&A Part 2, Dominic D’Agostino, PhD focuses his discussion on the brain. Dr. D’Agostino explores misconceptions that exist regarding brain physiology, such as glucose dependency. He focuses on the neuroprotective effects of intermittent fasting, reducing glucose and insulin levels, and increasing ketone levels. Dr. D’Agostino shares how a targeted ketogenic approach can reduce neuroinflammation, enhance brain energy metabolism, and activate genetic changes that support…
