Clinical Protocols David B. Wood, ND B.Sc. Microbiology, University of Washington, 1977 N.D., Bastyr University, 1983 Cofounder, President: Trinity Family Health Clinic, PS, 1984 Cofounder, Vice President, CMO: BioGenesis Nutraceuticals, Inc., 2000
Introduction In this lecture I will review my thoughts in terms of physical exam, laboratory and therapeutic options for various conditions I see in my office. I will discuss the why’s and dosage’s of nutraceutical and botanical Rx options This lecture is not meant to be inclusive but rather a primer to encourage thought and discussion as well as an aide in your own decision making process.
Allergies (Food) R/O with laboratory testing (IgG) or Elimination/Challenge diet. This is a good time to do the BioCleanse Detox program. Avoid 2+ or higher foods, Rotate others Desensitise with homeopathic dilutions of allergens (Apex) or T cell balance with Sterol 117 (1-2 QD) Run Digestive/Microbiol/P testing, Organix or Lactulose/Mannitol testing to assess level of gut dysbiosis, permeability and/or digestive enzyme deficiencies
Allergies (Food) Remove any bowel pathogens with ParaBiotic Plus (2 TID) Consider reforestation of bowel: ProFlora Plus (2 BID). Initiate this treatment after completing ParaBiotic Plus phase. Repair mucosal barrier/gut lining with: Intestinal Repair Complex (1 tsp BID-TID) or Intestinal Repair Capsules (2-3 TID)
Allergies (Environmental) Seasonal? –Late February to Mid April? Probably Deciduous Tree Pollens –Mid April to Mid July? Probably Grass/Weed pollens –Year around? Probably dust mite or mold allergy Evaluate symptomatically or allergy test with IgE serum testing or skin testing.
Allergies (Environmental) Reduce exposure (air cleaners, electrostatic precipitators, etc.) Desensitise with Sterol 117 (T-cell balancing) (1-2 QD) Rx: BioAllergy Plus capsules (2-4 caps TID - QID between meals) Rx: Immune Balancing Complex (T cell balancing) (1-2 BID with food)
Adrenal Insufficiency Check for postural hypotension (Lying to standing blood pressure evaluation). I consider it significant if the systolic pressure drops by 8 points or more. Serum Sodium less than 140. My optimal is 140-142 Test Salivary Hormones to check for deficiency and/or circadian rhythm disturbances. Fatigue after exercise and history of slow recovery. Takes 2-3 days to recover from stress, exercise, etc.
