Eric Gordon, MD on Using the Molekule Air Purifier in Our Office

Patients at GMA are uniquely sensitive to many things, and odors, scents, and air pollution are often one of the biggest issues they deal with. Though we have searched for air purifiers that helped our patients, we never had one that we were truly satisfied with. Until now.

We first heard about Molekule Air Purification from our patients. It almost sounded too good to be true. We found the PECO units do not filter, absorb, or block toxins in the air. The PECO technology literally takes the toxins apart, down to the molecular level. PECO is an innovative technology that utilizes free radicals—the same radicals used to kill cancer cells—to oxidize pollutants. By using nanotechnology, PECO is able to destroy pollutants 1000 times smaller than traditional HEPA filters (0.1 nanometers versus 300 nanometers). Toxins are broken down into carbon dioxide, water, and trace elements.

Our most sensitive staff, along with several who participated in Molekule’s beta study, all had notable positive results.

I wish every room I go to had a Molekule Air Purifier in it.

Asha with her Molekule Air Purifier

 

I’ve never come across a better air purifier than Molekule. On top of that, it is a beautiful design. I started calling her Mo, since she felt like my new best friend.

I live in a house with 2 cats. My roomie is also redesigning the kitchen, so there is extra dust floating around. When I brought my Molekule into my room it automatically made me breath better. I had no idea how polluted my air was in my house till I brought the air purifier in. I was surprised to find out that indoor air is 5x more polluted than outdoor air.

I started waking up earlier, with more energy and less congested. I kept the Molekule on while I slept, and it seemed to make me sleep deeper. Usually I wake up tired, and I was waking up with extra energy. My bedroom feels like a sanctuary.

I brought my Molekule to the office, and everyone in the office noticed the difference in air quality. When someone who was sick came into the office, it felt like I was protected by the Molekule.

I highly recommend the Molekule, and believe there is no other air purifier out there that compares. I wish every room I go to had a Molekule in it.

Air Pollution Effects on Cognitive Ability: What Can You Do About It?

Red Plane - Lynn Badger 2066

Red Plane – Lynn Badger 2016

You probably already know that air pollution has an impact on the lungs, making it more difficult to breathe, and even triggering asthma and other respiratory issues. You may have also noticed that you are more tired on days when the air pollution levels are high.

Did you know that air pollution can also affect your ability to think well and remember things? Research is discovering the impact of air pollution, especially particulate matter (PM) and ozone, on the central nervous system and the brain. It has been connected with developmental issues in children, and the development of vascular dementia, Alzheimer’s diseaseParkinson’s disease, and loss of brain mass and cognitive abilities in adults.

Low Dose Immunotherapy (LDI)

What is LDI?

LDI is a form of immune desensitization that works by restoring the tolerance for toxins or other foreign substances that induce an immune response in the body (antigens). This can be done for literally thousands of antigens at once to help your immune system better tolerate certain therapies.

How does LDI work?

Lab Services 200LDI’s effect is accomplished by combining beta glucuronidase with extremely miniscule doses of various allergens.  The enzyme (beta-glucuronidase) potentiates the antigen, allowing for a much greater benefit with much lower concentrations of the antigen itself. The enzyme makes [tipsy content=”A T cell or T lymphocyte is a type of lymphocyte (a subtype of white blood cell) that plays a central role in cell-mediated immunity. They are called T cells because they mature in the thymus.” group=”0″ use_oembed=”false” ]T-cells [/tipsy](a type of immune cell) pay attention to the antigen included with it, down-regulating the immune response to  the specific antigens your provider feels are relevant to your particular medical issues. The tolerance is actively learned by your immune system, and helps make your other treatments easier to tolerate, as well as potentially directly improving your condition. [Read more…]

Getting Around Roadblocks To Healthy Eating Habits

heather croppedBy Heather Greenfield, MS, CNS – Nutritional Consultant

“Accept no one’s definition of your life; define yourself.”
~Harvey Fierstein

Whether you have Lyme disease, mold toxicity, CFIDS, or undiagnosed gut issues, cleaning up your diet is one of the most powerful tools for health that you can use. It will help improve your immune system so that your doctor can treat you more effectively. You may just need less medication as a result of having a healthier diet. Everybody wants to get better, so why is changing one’s diet so challenging?

I love to share information and help guide people to more vibrant health through eating the healthiest foods for their body. To me, dietary changes are almost never about weight loss. Food can be medicine, and eating healthy food is really about improving the immune response, controlling blood sugar, and discovering hidden food sensitivities. [Read more…]

All Disease Begins in the Gut

“All disease begins in the gut” ~ Hippocrates

Lyme disease,… Borrelia burgdorferi (Bb) and other tick borne coinfections are strange, confounding, infuriating, scary, annoying, mysterious, and apparently controversial. Call it active Lyme or chronic Lyme, or do like the Infectious Disease Society of America guys do: deny, deny, deny, and call it “Post Lyme Disease Syndrome.” The fact remains, people are still sick. The symptoms are many, and can be anything from uncomfortable to debilitating. Today, we concentrate on how food can effect how you feel and heal from tick borne illness.

When infected by Lyme disease, the immune system is invaded with a tiny microorganism called a spirochete that is thought to be capable of sequestering itself into the tissues of the body. This can make it difficult to eradicate with one short-term prescription of antibiotics. The spirochete is intelligent and can use the body to hide and shift while avoiding treatment. The ability for this microorganism to hide can create a constant state of infection that causes persistent inflammation and immune dysregulation. With over 70% of the immune system lining the gut, this can lead to digestive inflammation and other digestive and systemic issues. Since you eat every day, and the immune system has to deal with everything that you eat, you might just have a problem on your hands if you’re eating the wrong foods. [Read more…]

Why Should I Eat a Gluten Free Diet?

Most of you have either seen the “Gluten-free” label, or heard an opinion on the folly or wisdom of a gluten-free diet.

What does gluten-free mean?

Gluten is a protein present only in certain grains. It is most concentrated in wheat, but is also found in rye and barley and sometimes in oats. Gluten largely determines the texture of bread and other products because it improves its leavening properties.  Without gluten, bread simply wouldn’t be fluffy.

What’s wrong with fluffy bread?

The interventions by agricultural scientists to create strains of wheat which make bread even fluffier did so by modifying the gluten, which is still brand new (40 years is new on the evolutionary timetable) to our digestive tract. These new strains of wheat that contain this new kind of gluten are farmed by the huge commercial farms in the US to the exclusion of most of the old wild strains. Researchers and doctors have seen a steady rise in immune dysregulation, autoimmunity, and imbalanced gut microflora over the last few decades, especially since the 1970s, when these new wheat strains were introduced to the American farmer. It is our current reality that the food we count on daily as part of a regular, wholesome diet can adversely affect many other aspects of our health. [Read more…]
