Metabolic detoxification (detox)—or biotransformation—is a physiological function that removes toxic substances of endogenous or exogenous origin from the body. Because the function and regulation of this process varies from person to person, different people can have a different sensitivity to toxic substances and their effects on the development of a variety of diseases such as liver conditions, fertility problems, and cancer. Along with sex, age, and lifestyle, genetics play an important role in this variability. But do we actually know…

by Michael Stanclift, ND It goes by many names, ubiquinol (“yoo-bik-quin-ol”), ubiquinone (“yoo-bik-quin-ohn”), coenzyme Q10, or everybody’s favorite nickname, CoQ10. It’s found all over the body, in our mitochondria, which gives you an idea of how important it is to our health. CoQ10 is a fat-soluble antioxidant that we get by eating oily fish, organ meats, and whole grains, and CoQ10’s job is to help us make energy and protect our cells from free radicals. A wide range of medical…

by Joseph Lamb, MD “In 1982, while on sabbatical at the Linus Pauling Institute, I became convinced from the discussions I had with Dr. Pauling and many other luminaries that visited the Institute that the only way to really differentiate disease care from health care was through the development of a system that quantified health in terms of function and not the absence of disease.” —Jeffrey Bland, PhD President, Personalized Lifestyle Medicine Institute We all likely agree with Dr. Bland…

by Melissa Blake, ND Metabolic detoxification is a complex set of coordinating systems working together to neutralize and eliminate toxic substances from the body. It is an amazing and intricate design. As suggested by design expert Irene Au, just like any good design, “when it works, no one notices, but when it doesn’t, it sure stinks.” Patients know far too well just how much it does stink. Excess toxic burden (too much in, not enough out) has been associated with…

by Lewis Chang, PhD A century ago, the global average life expectancy of humans was around 32 years. Today, it is 73. Because we live much longer, aging is now a major risk factor for a myriad of modern-day chronic illnesses. For scientists to study aging-related health issues, one must find a scientific way to measure aging, a quantifiable biochemical marker that reflects our biological age, so to speak. Having the ability to detect changes in such a biomarker will…

Gastroenterologist Dr. Marvin Singh describes his philosophy on bringing patients back to health.

Dr. Singh discusses the importance of assessing the anti-inflammatory capacity of the microbiome, understanding the diagnostics, remembering the lifestyle basics, and talking to the patients. By “dialing things back a bit,” we better see all the factors that are happening in a patient…
