Gut Connection, Endotoxins, And Systemic Illness

Gut Connection, Endotoxins, and Systemic Illness

Autoimmunity of all forms, including MS, continues to be on the rise. The root cause can be barrier permeability, which is compromised by chronic stress, environmental and endogenous toxins, pathogens, and lifestyle choices. Understanding and addressing these factors is foundational to long-term health. When GI health is out of balance, it can create an environment resulting in immune dysfunction, eventually triggering autoimmunity by a number of mechanisms. Dr. Fresco will discuss these underlying causes associated with many systemic illnesses, including the role of biofilms and LPS. Participants will learn clear steps to restore balance, using clinically-effective, plant-based medicines.

garrett-salpeter-web-2020

Garrett Salpeter

Biography

Known as “The Health Engineer,” Garrett has taken his education in Physics (BS) and Engineering (MSE) and applied it into a system for making the human body better. His journey started when he picked up ice hockey as a boy. It was a game he loved, but for which he had little natural aptitude. After several years “skating by,” he decided to delve deeply into the world of strength and conditioning to try to give himself a chance to play at a higher level. Unfortunately, what was popular at the time did not work for him — and he kept searching. 

​In dealing with some injury problems, he learned about the paramount importance of the nervous system, and saw the connections to how the same neurological principles could be applied to fitness. The neurological approach worked, and he never looked back. He became determined to learn as much as possible about how to affect the nervous system. To that end, he spent hundreds of hours in self-study, mentored under several leading-edge practitioners, tested many of his theories on himself and others, and even went back to school for a Ph.D. program in Neuroscience (from which he took a leave of absence to launch the Neubie device). 

​In 2009, he opened his first facility in Austin, TX to start sharing these methods with his community. This has grown into what we now know as NeuFit, which combines an advanced understanding of physiology with the best practices from diverse training and therapeutic practices, and constantly pushes these processes by using technology to accelerate them further. Since that first day, he has worked with people of all ages and in almost all situations, including athletes from MLB, the NFL, the NHL, the NBA, UFC, Olympics, NCAA, and more, helping them get out of pain, improve performance, sometimes avoid surgeries, and live life at a higher level. 

​​He lives in Austin, Texas and is ecstatically in love with his wife, Briana, and their two daughters, Gwenny and Gemma.

Ken Sharlin, M.D., M.P.H., IFMCP

Biography

Ken Sharlin, M.D., M.P.H., IFMCP, is a board-certified neurologist and functional medicine practitioner.  He received his medical degrees from Emory University, and functional medicine education through The Institute for Functional Medicine.  He was the first physician to be recognized as a Wahls Protocol Certified Health Professional.  In addition, Dr. Sharlin has trained in the Bredesen Protocol for Reversal of Cognitive Decline (ReCODE) in Alzheimer’s disease.  He practices general neurology, conducts clinical research in multiple sclerosis, and directs his functional medicine program, Brain Tune Up!, through his clinic, Sharlin Health and Neurology, located in Ozark, MO.

Abstract

When Can I Stop My Medication?  And How The Wahls Protocol Can Get You There.  

A podium presentation followed by panel discussion with Dr. Ken Sharlin and Dr. Terry Wahls

The first time the words, “You have multiple sclerosis” is heard by anyone must be devastating news.  Perhaps second to hearing the diagnosis is difficult to accept the idea that conventional treatment means a life sentence of medications that are costly and can have serious, life-threatening, side effects.  Until recently, there has not been an examination of when disease-modifying therapy can be stopped. Our presentation will explore the latest information on this subject, including a discussion of how The Wahls Protocol offers a strategy to MS sufferers to take control, and increase the likelihood that they can stop their medication.

Only the Good Die Young: Dr. Roy Walford, ALS, and the Dream of Longevity – Lessons Learned from the Field and the Lab.

Presentation Abstract: Roy’s story is amazing and ironic for a man who said he would live to 120, but died at 79 of ALS. Dr. Roy Walford was a pioneer researcher in the field of longevity, mentor to Dr. Valter Longo who is the inventor of the PROLON diet. He was know to be extremely colorful and multi-talented beyond his work as a scientist. He was an actor, a social activist, an author, a musician, and a leading advocate for the idea that a nutrient dense calorie restricted diet would extend life for (potentially) decades. Infamously, he spent 2 years living in Biosphere 2 in the Arizona Desert along with 7 other “crew members” to demonstrate the viability of closed ecological systems to support and maintain human life in outer space. It was designed to explore the web of interactions within life systems in a structure with different areas based on various ecological biomes. Little did he know that when he emerged from Biosphere 2 with slurred speech and an awkward gait he was showing signs of the disease that would be his demise. However, the 5 year survival of ALS is only about 5% and yet Walford lived for many years beyond the expected survival. I will be using his story to explore ALS from a functional medicine perspective and speculate what may have triggered Walford’s illness but also contributed to his unusually long survival with the illness.

tyler-web-2020

Tyler Titcomb, RD, PhD

Biography

Tyler J Titcomb is a postdoctoral research scholar at the University of Iowa under the direction of Dr. Terry Wahls. He is a registered dietitian and has a PhD in nutritional sciences from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. After an 8-inch growth spurt in 4 months when Tyler was 12 years old, he became extremely injury plagued. His teenage years were full of sports injuries which led Tyler to his family chiropractor who coached him on how to improve his diet to prevent more of these injuries. Turns out these radical things called vegetables were just what Tyler needed, and he has been injury free and hooked on nutrition ever since. 

Prior to joining Dr. Wahls’ research team, Tyler conducted research on the relationship between dietary heavy metal toxins and urinary tract cancer at the University of North Dakota and carotenoid absorption and metabolism from selectively bred, biofortified crops including corn and carrots at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. In addition, as a side project in graduate school, Tyler conducted studies assessing dietary intake of B-vitamins in low-income countries and published a large narrative review on the topic.

Tyler’s passion is to research therapeutic diet and lifestyle interventions for the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases, which led him to apply for the postdoc position to work with Dr. Wahls. The Wahls Diet is rich in carotenoids (think colors) allowing Tyler to not only follow his dreams in researching the effect of diet on neurodegenerative disease but also to bring the expertise he gained from his PhD training to the Wahls research team. There are several mechanisms as to how carotenoids could benefit MS, but currently there is nearly zero research on the relationship. Tyler plans to change this.

Carotenoids for Human Health

Carotenoids are a group of plant derived compounds that give plants yellow, orange, and red color. They are also found in leafy green plants because carotenoids protect chlorophyll from degradation by harmful UV radiation. Because carotenoids are found in most plants they are very commonly consumed in our diet, where the more fruits and vegetables a person eats, the more carotenoids they eat. Diets high in carotenoids have many health benefits including reduced risk of cancer and eye disease and improved mood, memory, and cognition. In addition, some carotenoids can be enzymatically converted to vitamin A in the body. Vitamin A is necessary for reproductive health, vision, and immune function, and pro-vitamin A carotenoids account for 70% of global vitamin A intake. The autoimmune aspect of MS is characterized by an imbalance in T helper (Th) and regulatory T (Treg) cells leading to dysregulation of the immune response with increased pro-inflammatory cytokine production. Pro-vitamin A carotenoids may benefit MS because vitamin A is necessary for normal balance of Th and Treg cells and reduces pro-inflammatory cytokine production associated with MS. In addition, other carotenoids accumulate in nervous tissue cell membranes (including myelin) and are an important component for cell membrane integrity and function.

darin-web-2020

Darin Ingels, ND, FAAEM

Biography

Dr. Ingels is a respected leader in natural medicine with more than 28 years experience in the healthcare field. He is a Fellow of the American Academy of Environmental Medicine and Medical Academy of Pediatric Special Needs. His practice focuses on finding root causes of illness for children and adults with complex medical illnesses.

Dr. Ingels has been published extensively and is the author of “The Lyme Solution: A 5-Part Plan to Fight the Inflammatory Autoimmune Response and Beat Lyme Disease”, a comprehensive natural approach to treating Lyme disease. He has also been a Lyme and MS patient and has been able to reverse and control his symptoms using natural methods. Dr. Ingels specializes in Lyme disease, autism and chronic immune dysfunction. He uses diet, nutrients, herbs, homeopathy and immunotherapy to help his patients achieve better health.

Overcoming Lyme Disease, Mold Toxicity And Other Infections That Cause Autoimmune Disease

Lyme disease is the fastest growing infectious disease in the world, with more than 300,000 new cases in the United States each year. Lyme and other infectious diseases are often underlying causes of autoimmune disease and commonly get misdiagnosed as other illnesses, including MS, ALS, lupus and other autoimmune conditions. Additionally, mold exposure and mycotoxicity have also been linked with causing various autoimmune disorders and is often overlooked by most healthcare providers. In this talk, Dr. Ingels will discuss how identifying underlying infection can help direct treatment of autoimmune disease and get to the root cause of the problem. He will share his personal and professional experience of overcoming Lyme disease using natural methods, such as dietary modifications, supporting gut health, herbal therapy, detoxification strategies, lifestyle management and other novel therapies to modulate the immune system. Dr. Ingels will also discuss how to identify mold in your environment and strategies to reduce your exposure and body burden of mycotoxins, using therapies that work with your body instead of against it can help stimulate better healing.

Managing both MS and Thyroid Disease

How to use a Wahl’s Program friendly approach to improve your own thyroid function and reverse chronic thyroid symptoms. 

Those with MS have a higher risk of all types of spontaneously developing autoimmune thyroid disease including both Grave’s Disease and Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis. Biological and immunosuppressant medications for treating MS also raise the risk of triggering autoimmune thyroid disease.

This presentation will teach the listeners how to work within Wahls’ Protocol Guidelines to improve thyroid function. They will learn how to achieve the narrow target of optimal iodine, how to select foods to improve immunotolerance through better T regulatory cell function, and what are the most commonly undiagnosed comorbidities experienced by those with thyroid disease.

Dian Ginsberg M.D., F.A.C.O.G

Biography

Medical Director -The Ginstitute of Functional Medicine
Board Certified in Anti-Aging and Regenerative Medicine
Advanced Fellowship Metabolic Medical Institute
Advisory Board Member for Functional Medicine University

Dr. Ginsberg completed her residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology at the Bowman-Gray School of Medicine in North Carolina before Houston’s sunny climate brought her to Texas. Dr. Ginsberg has years of experience providing comprehensive obstetrics and gynecology treatment. As her career advanced, she developed a special interest in functional medicine and the manner in which it bridges the gap of a patient’s illness while minimizing severe symptoms and optimizing health.  This passion now encompasses special focus on the understanding of genetics and methylation, optimal hormone balance and overall healthy aging. Being a black belt in Tae Kwan Do and an accomplished marathon runner and triathlete has led her to explore the latest medical advances in wellness for athletes along with anti-aging therapies for both men and women. She is motivated to continue her research in nutritional therapies for many reasons, most significantly for the benefits it has brought to her sons with specific learning needs.

Dr. Ginsberg lectures for Functional Medicine University on the topic of PCOS, its natural reversal, and pathways to fertility. She is the author of The PCOS Environmental Roadmap. Rectangularization of aging is her personal passion, and she is faculty at the American Academy of Anti-Aging where she has lectured about bio-identical hormone replacment, methylation and telomeres (DNA caps) and how instrumental their preservation is for ongoing health. She is now actively involved in a ground breaking infusion study looking at Young Fresh Frozen Plasma and the effect it has on helping reverse symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis and Parkinson’s Disease.  She is lecturing and educating all over the country on the amazing results of this study and how it can help neurodegenerative diseases

Bio-Identical Hormones, the Microbiome and Neurodegenerative Disease Connections and Clinical Applications for Treatment

Research now on a regular basis is indicating that dysregulation of circulating estrogens observed in peri and post-menopausal women can adversely impact brain cognition. It extends into testosterone levels for both men and women. This age range begins as early as 35 years old.  One of the principal regulators of circulating estrogens is the gut microbiome. The gut microbiota regulates estrogens (estriol, estradiol and estrone). 

When this process is impaired through dysbiosis of gut microbiota, characterized by lower microbial diversity, the circulating estrogens and other hormones may contribute to the development of conditions including the neurodegenerative diseases.

Promising therapeutic interventions including modulation of the microbiome composition, reestablishing hormone balance and subsequently modulating the immune system will have a significant impact on these disease states.

 

This talk will highlight promising interventions in the field, such as bio-identical hormone replacement, dietary therapeutics, utilization of clinical testing such as salivary and urine hormones as well as DNA stool testing and how to apply them clinically. It will further discuss areas that provide exciting unexplored topics of study.

Dr. Marisol Teijeiro, BA, ND

Biography

Dr. Marisol Teijeiro ND, BA is an author, speaker, and director of Sanas Health Practice in Ontario, Canada. She is also the inventor of the Queen of the Thrones™ Castor Oil Pack and castor oil products.  She is certified in Environmental Medicine and Homotoxicology.

Her passion and area of expertise is teaching people how to have incredible digestion and the best bowel movements.   Her mission is to create awareness about stools and a new SANAS standardized stool scale that would encompass all the clinical gems she has learned for personal, experience, research and practice on the ideal bowel movement.

Stools And What They Say About You & The Herbal Tools That Help Them Become Regular - The Drugs That Don’t Allow You To Go To The Bathroom

A foundation of naturopathic medicine is engaging the healing power of nature. Nothing is more natural than a bowel movement. I suggest it is the most important product of the human body. Why? Because, not only does this process eliminate unwanted waste but it holds valuable information that can direct the clinician and the owner as to their present state of health. The problem is that in our current medical system, we look at stools and teach our patients solely about consistency and stool color as popularized by the Bristol Stool Scale and Stool Color Card for infant biliary atresia. Yet there are a plentitude of other important characteristics that serve as a “diagnostic” tool to elucidate issues within the gut microbiota, deficiencies of important vitamins, minerals and factors required for digestion and problems within regulatory systems such as the nervous, immune and endocrine systems. Years of personal, clinical and evidence exploration has led to the conclusion that there are other ways to look at your stool. So take a seat and learn from Dr. Marisol Teijeiro what classifies the ideal stool.  Her message will empower people around the world of all social classes to optimize their health.

My career started by volunteering at an AIDS hospice in Minneapolis in the early 90s, at the time I was selling computers, but a few weeks into my volunteer work I realized I was supposed to be a nurse.  I earned my RN, moved to Iowa, and began working at UIHC. I then earned my ARNP in 2007 and accepted a position in Neurology, working with MS patients, the true love of my life. My approach has always been integrative, because when constructing a treatment plan, the best outcomes are always achieved when the whole person is taken into consideration.

Tom Moorcroft, DO

Biography

Dr. Tom treats some of the sickest, most sensitive patients suffering from chronic Lyme disease, tick-borne co-infections, mold illness and children with infection-induced autoimmune encephalitis (PANDAS/PANS). He focuses on optimizing the body’s self-healing systems in order to achieve optimal health with simple, natural interventions; utilizing more conventional approaches when needed. Each individual is a unique unity of body, mind and spirit. Successful treatment strategies are patient-centered and address all three levels. The true source of radiant health is within each of us. Dr. Tom’s goal is to empower each of his patients to get in touch with their inner source of health so they can experience optimal health.

Tick-borne Co-Infections, Toxin-Induced Autoimmune Encephalitis

Abrupt behavioral and cognitive changes are becoming more and more common in children (and adults). One of the better known causes is Pediatric Autoimmune Neuropsychiatric Disorders Associated with Streptococcal Infections (PANDAS). Children often experience abrupt behavioral and personality changes or food restriction along with a host of neuropsychiatric symptoms, such as OCD, rage, depression, anxiety, regression in school performance, and sensory or motor abnormalities.  The term Pediatric Acute-onset Neuropsychiatric Syndromes (PANS) was coined to be inclusive of most other toxic/infectious causes of acute behavioral changes. Often overlooked causes include tick-borne infections and mold exposures. In the case of tick-borne infections, these may cause PANS like symptoms without triggering an autoimmune reaction, however the most common situation is the infection triggers autoimmunity and inflammation.

In children, the changes tend to be neuropsychiatric as described; in adults, the changes tend to be more depression, anxiety and cognitive changes, rather than abrupt onset of something such as OCD or rage. Treatment requires identification of the underlying cause, addressing the autoimmune reaction and decreasing the subsequent inflammation in order for the patient to fully heal. Functional approaches to diagnosis and treatment are critical, including the potential use of conventional medications, herbal antimicrobials and detoxification supports, and nutritional/dietary/lifestyle modifications.

Self-care is a critical part of healing, so you truly have control over your own health and healing. We’ll be discussing key strategies for jumpstarting your health right in your own home.

She provides a step-by-step system that is customized for your unique health condition with a focus on nutrition science,  sleep physiology, stress management, exercise physiology, connection to community and mind-body practices. Her program reverse engineers your health goals by understanding your genetic potential and focuses on recovery from stress exposure.

Overcome Chronic Illness, Fatigue and Hormonal Imbalance and Get Your Energy and Vitality Back Without Medication or Surgery.”  She teaches culinary medicine and mind-body seminars in Austin and has been a practitioner and teacher of meditation for over twenty years.

The Autoimmunity Mind-Body Connection

The NIH reports that more than 23 million adults suffer from auto-immune disease and that many of these adults experience pain, inflammation, anxiety and depression. Additionally, people who were diagnosed with a stress-related illness were more likely to be diagnosed with multiple autoimmune diseases, and if younger, had a higher rate of autoimmune disease.  Mind-body interventions have long been known to help reduce stress-related illnesses. Additionally, meditation has been studied as an effective approach for pain relief, and is an intervention for both anxiety and depression. However, only 8% of adults in the US practice or have practiced a daily breathwork or meditation practice and as few as 3% of doctors actually talk to patients about how to reduce stress.  In this talk, we will review how: 

  • Mindfulness meditation as well as other forms of mind-body practices can improve self-reported measures of disease symptomatology, and the biological mechanisms underlying human aging and disease. 
  • Meditation has direct effects on immune system parameters.
  • Meditation has a positive effect on depressive and anxiety symptoms, with secondary outcomes of change in psychological distress, well-being, and disease activity such as fatigue and joint pain.  
  • To get started with a meditation and breathwork practice.

Candida Overgrowth is an Underdiagnosed Issue in Those with Autoimmune Disease

Candida overgrowth may be more prevalent among those with autoimmunity. Overgrowth of candida and other fungal organisms can damage the mucosal intestinal barrier and cause immune dysfunction.

This is particularly relevant for those with MS since intestinal barrier function plays an important role in autoimmunity and “controls the equilibrium between tolerance and immunity to non-self antigens.”

This presentation will teach the listeners about:

  • Risk factors and identifying signs/symptoms of candida overgrowth

  • The association between autoimmunity and candida overgrowth

  • Specific labs that test for fungal overgrowth

  • The impact of environmental and mold/ mycotoxin exposure on fungal organisms

  • Treatment options which include dietary interventions, herbs and other natural products, as well as pharmaceutical medications

  • I wasn’t sure what to expect coming to the seminar for the first time. At most I thought I would gain an immense amount of knowledge and useful resources to keep me on track. What I gained was SO much more! The community of warriors, and immediate connections have been such indescribable gifts 🧡. I slept most of the day yesterday - back to work today and I am more motivated than I ever have been to make my health a priority. I’m missing you all, already!

    Patti L. 2019 Attendee
  • What a great seminar and retreat (as an alumni I think the retreat part was even more golden this year). I had a 3 hour layover at the Denver Airport and am now on my way to Vancouver, BC. During that time I worked on a goals list of things I want to add/tweak/increase to further my healing. The trip always makes me feel so motivated to do more. Now to get my butt in motion and DO more!

    Cindy H 2019 Attendee
  • I just ordered a salad from the hotel. The manager says, "I don't have any more Wahls certified meals." I tell him that's ok, I'll try to make my own. He comes back, and says "I'm out of salmon but have chicken. How does that need to be prepared?" "I want you to kick MS' ass!"

    I was almost in tears. It was so kind and the perfect thing to hear at the perfect moment.
    Cecy 2019 Attendee
  • I cried when I told my husband about the seminar. It suddenly became so overwhelming. The connection that we experienced was so very beautiful and powerful. I'm just sitting here feeling profoundly thankful that I got to be a part of such an amazing group of people. Thank you, everyone! I'm holding you all in my heart this morning!

    Sherilyn 2019 Attendee
  • The Wahls Protocol Seminar was great, and the "After Seminar-Seminar" was pretty great too! It's all about community, and the community that has developed and continues to grow around the Wahls Protocol is truly amazing. Together, we can accomplish anything, and nobody gets left behind. We're all in.

    Seminar Attendee 2019
  • I love it when something completely unexpected happens, those unplanned moments when everything is exactly as it should be, and I'm able to be in the moment, and feel true bliss. If somebody told me last week that I would be singing and dancing in public - and enjoying it, I would have thought he was nuts. But what the heck, when the river is flowing only a real nut tries to swim upstream.

    Seminar Attendee 2019
  • I’m speechless. I has been a really memorable week, not only food and protocol, it’s been all about life changing posibilites and purpose minded life projects. And in top of it, marvelous people to bond with. “ ... if you’ve gotten where you are not being 100%, imagine what you can be and do being your 100%” Thanks Dr Wahls for your kindness and selfishness less to welcome me/us in your tribe, in working for more knowledge and supporting each other in this life healing/enjoyment process.

What do you have to gain?

  • I made friends with attendees, presenters and myself. This was a life changing conference attended by some of the smartest most engaging people I've ever met. The lessons learned will be with me for a lifetime and with strict adherence I strongly suspect I too will recover from this chronic condition that has permanently disabled so many.

  • This Wahls Warrior princess (using the bright red walker) at the seminar thanks ALL of you for restoring my hope!! I have NEVER been in a crowd of such empowered, like-minded people determined to NOT be victims of their disease since I was diagnosed in 2004! Again, THANK YOU and I wish for you nothing but great health and much happiness.

    Shawn K. 2017 Seminar Attendee
  • Every day of the conference I laughed, I spent time in deep thought, and I was moved to tears of joy and happiness. Each day was a full day - a heck of a day. It was five days that were incredibly special in my life that I will remember forever.

    Kim S. 2017 Seminar Attendee
  • just want to say I am so happy I was able to attend this seminar❤️ Listening to Dr Wahls share her story and journey I person was so inspiring and connecting with like-minded people was priceless✨ I have left feeling inspired, motivated and grateful for the new found friendships I have made.  Thank you for all involved working on this event - everyone was so welcoming. It was such a great conference hearing all the speakers and connecting with some amazing like minded individuals!  I felt really inspired and motivated - the community you all created was such a positive experience.  

    2018 Seminar Guest
  • Now, we can't stop thinking about next year, so we can do it again! Back to the real world, it was a truly memorable experience. We learned about the biome, and nutrition. We heard about the latest research and therapy. We found out about hormones, how to move like an animal and the importance of mindfulness. But I learned something that was much more important. After the seminar, when everything had quieted down, and the conference rooms that had been home to so much energy had emptied, I found what we had travelled so far for. Human connection. Everything we need is right in front of us; it is up to us to accept what is so graciously offered. Friendship exists for those who seek it, and take a chance by giving a little of themselves in the spirit of conversation and listening as others do the same. We had no idea what awaited in Cedar Rapids, but I do believe we found exactly what we needed.
