A Message for the Next Generation

As I prepared my presentation for seventh and eighth graders at Long Branch Middle School as part of a WEForum health education event, I went through some serious reflection and creative thinking. On one hand, if you had told me as a student in the late 1980s and early 1990s that we would have created […]

Jackie has been a good friend of mine for years. It’s not uncommon for friends and family to talk to me about their health, whether we’re at dinner, a store or a soccer game, and I thank God for ears to listen when approached. But Jackie was hesitant to open up about how she was […]

Dr. Proodian with his parents at his graduation

When you reach certain milestones in life, personally and professionally, it’s only natural to reflect. As I celebrate 25 years in practice as a chiropractor, I’ve found myself looking back at the road I’ve traveled, the people I’ve encountered, the joys and frustrations, and the road that lies ahead. I graduated chiropractic school in December […]

Female Athletes

In the previous post, we discussed the fact that most female athletes aren’t properly monitored and assessed. Doctors tend to diagnose and treat health issues in the same way they treat males even though the female body is structured and functions very differently. Females are more susceptible to certain injuries, especially in the foot, ankle […]

Female Athletes

During the past 20-30 years, nothing in youth sports has changed more radically than the female athlete. To be clear, I could not be happier that girls are being given more opportunities to achieve their athletic potential. However, female physiology is very different from male physiology and should be treated as such. Most female athletes […]

Big Soda Is at It Again. When Will We Take a Stronger Stand?

A reader of my blog sent me a screenshot of paid content from the American Beverage Association that appeared on a major news network’s website. When I say “paid content,” I’m referring to advertising that’s dressed up to look like the kinds of articles that visitors actually go to the website to read. There were […]

Intestinal Permeability

In Part 1 of our blog series on intestinal permeability, we explained what intestinal permeability is and why it’s a problem. When there’s an imbalance of gut bacteria, the passage of toxins, digestive proteins, bacteria and viruses from the gastrointestinal system into the bloodstream becomes unregulated. When permeability isn’t tightly controlled, it can cause the […]

Intestinal Permeability

In Part 1 of our blog series on intestinal permeability, we explained what intestinal permeability really is and why the more popular term, leaky gut, doesn’t make sense. The gut is supposed to “leak” to allow nutrients into the bloodstream while the immune system fights off any toxins that sneak through the gastrointestinal wall. However, […]

Intestinal Permeability

Leaky gut has become a bit of a buzzword as more healthcare providers wake up to the fact that the food we put into our bodies can get into the bloodstream and affect our health. Unfortunately, we’ve found that many people don’t take the term “leaky gut” seriously. Not only does it sound silly, but […]
