NCI Well Connect
June 26, 2017
Dear Steve, 

DID YOU KNOW that eating fish may help reduce the joint pain and swelling of rheumatoid arthritis, a new study from Arthritis Care & Research has found?

All groups were categorized by fish consumption: less than one serving a month, one a month, one to two a week, and more than two a week. The average disease activity score in each group declined as fish intake increased.

The magnitude of the effect was huge, or about one-third of the expected magnitude of the standard drug treatment of rheumatoid arthritis with methotrexate, in those with highest fish intake.

Probiotics for Depression, IBS

Bonnie and Steve: Two new studies show that probiotics may relieve symptoms of depression.

In a new study published in Gastroenterology, twice as many adults with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) reported improvements from co-existing depression when they took a specific probiotic than adults with IBS who took a placebo.

The study provides further evidence of the microbiota environment in the intestines being in direct communication with the brain.

In adults with IBS and mild to moderate anxiety or depression, half took a daily dose of the probiotic strain Bifidobacterium, while the others had a placebo.

At six weeks, 64% of the patients taking the probiotic had decreased depression scores, compared to 32% given placebo. Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging showed that the improvement in depression scores was associated with changes in multiple brain areas involved in mood control.

In another study presented at last week's 13th World Congress of Biological Psychiatry, a probiotic supplement with two different strains, Lactobacillusand Bifidobacterium, were given to patients with major depressive disorder who were experiencing a current episode of depression.
 
After 8 weeks, mood and inability to feel pleasure improved significantly, and sleep disturbance was significantly reduced.

One of the advantages of probiotics is their extremely favorable adverse effect profile compared with standard antidepressant therapy. The researchers said that up to 60% of patients discontinue their antidepressant use within the first 3 months because of side effects. Probiotics don't have the nausea, vomiting, headaches, suicidal ideation, sexual dysfunction, and you can take it long term.
Genetics
Genetic Wellness Testing & Analysis
(click image for video introduction)

Bonnie and Steve:It only takes a few simple steps to get individualized genetic nutritional support. Test your genome. We translate the results in a way you can understand. We target your individualized needs with nutritional support that can be easily implemented.

Pure Genomics helps the patient with:
  1. Reaffirmation for why existing patients should continue to adhere to their optimal diet and lifestyle. Genes are the deepest layer of individualization. When a patient is doing incredibly well despite horrible genetic deficiencies, it is a strong deterrent to fall off the wagon.
  2. Creates the last thrust of motivation for a patient who is having trouble adhering to their diet and lifestyle protocol.
  3. Provides incredible proof for prevention of family disease history. Connects the dots for many of our patients.
  4. Is a strong component for new patient screenings, especially for methylation, detoxification, antioxidant defense, weight management, metabolic health, and essential fatty acid, vitamin A, and vitamin D absorption.
