#74 Cannabis as Medicine (Part 1 of 2) - Cannabis on the Brain and Gut with Dr Dani Gordon
Seen any Cannabis products lately? We have, over the last few years, become completely inundated with cannabis products across the shelves of wellness and health stores. Online blogs claim miracle cures from everything you could think of. Sleep, anxiety, cancer, AI conditions, eczema, acne, libido. As a doctor I’m asked about this from patients a lot, but honestly I’ve had no formal training in the products and up until now I haven’t really looked at much research. So is this an incredible and legitimate supplement with a myriad of uses? Or is this modern day snake oil Well today, I’m speaking with Dr Dani Gordon. Dr Dani is a double board certified medical doctor, integrative medicine physician, Family medicine doctor and world leading expert in CBD, cannabis medicine. She also co-founded the non-profit, UK Medical Cannabis Clinicians's Society (MCCS), which trained the UK's first cannabis medicine specialists and helped set up the UK's first cannabis medicine centres. She has lectured at Imperial College, King’s College, and UCL on medical cannabis. She also developed the first medical cannabis training program for physicians in the UK and is a consultant for clinical research in cannabinoid medicine working with top researchers around the world.  Dr Dani Gordon is the perfect person to be speaking to on this subject and we have a fascinating conversation talking about: * Her first interaction with cannabis medicine and plant medicine * The historical use of cannabis as a plant medicine * The types of chemicals found in the cannabis plant * The endocannabinoid system and how cannabis may exert its affects * The risks of using Cannabis * The uses of cannabis in dementia, parkinsons, gut disorders  * Tips on how to use cannabis as a wellness product Disclaimer: This information is for educational purposes only and not to be taken as medical advice.

#160: Getting to the Root of Irritable Bowel Syndrome with Dr. Soyona Rafatjah
Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a widely-diagnosed, yet often misunderstood condition that affects approximately 60 million Americans. IBS is characterized by abdominal pain, discomfort, and changes in bowel habits, and is diagnosed when IBD or celiac disease have been ruled out. In other words, IBS is a “diagnosis of exclusion.” The range of symptoms, poorly defined pathogenesis, and functional nature of IBS make it a notoriously difficult disorder to treat. Because there is no widely recognized cause of IBS in the mainstream medical community, standard treatment is based primarily on symptom suppression and management.    On today’s Broken Brain Podcast, our host Dhru talks to Dr. Soyona Rafatjah, a board-certified Family Medicine physician and Medical Director and Co-Founder of PrimeHealth in Denver, CO.  PrimeHealth is a team of medical providers and health coaches that provides full-spectrum Functional Medicine and primary care, with an emphasis in treatment and reversal of hypothyroidism and irritable bowel syndrome. Prior to starting PrimeHealth, she was a physician at Parsley Health in New York City, a technology-forward Functional Medicine practice where she was integral to its rapid growth. Dr. Rafatjah worked and received expert mentorship at the renowned Mount Sinai Beth Israel Center for Health and Healing, Dr. Frank Lipman’s Eleven Eleven Wellness Center, and Dr. Robert Rountree’s Boulder Wellcare. In this episode, Dhru and Dr. Rafatjah dive deep into the topic of IBS. They discuss the difference between the conventional medicine approach versus the Functional Medicine approach when it comes to testing and treatment options for IBS. They also talk about the importance of identifying food intolerances, and the benefits of a low-FODMAP diet which can significantly reduce the severity of IBS symptoms.   In this episode, we dive into:    -Testing for IBS (9:29) -SIBO and the real problem with having the wrong bacteria in the small intestine (17:15) -The carnivore diet for treating IBS (23:17) -Common foods that trigger IBS (27:42)  -The relationship between stress and IBS (38:21) -What you can do today to improve your overall gut health (41:57)  -Where to learn more about Dr. Rafatjah (50:31) For more on Dr. Rafatjah you can follow her on Instagram @primehealth_denver, on Facebook @primehealthdenver, and through her website https://primehealthdenver.com/.

I’m a huge fan of morning routines, because I think they can transform your ability to focus, sleep well, and get the most out of your day, especially in this busy, modern world.  What I’ve found is that the best way to begin your day is to feed your body the right information or the right nutrients. That’s why Dr. Mark Hyman and I created the Pegan Shake. It’s a nutritionally packed morning blend designed to support healthy blood sugar, energy, and brain power.   It contains some of my most favorite brain boosting foods like MCT and avocado. It also features acacia fiber for healthy gut function and collagen, pumpkin, and pea protein to support muscle synthesis. Check it out at getfarmacy.com/peganshake.
