Are we in a pandemic of elevated uric acid? I had the chance to sit down with Dr. Ronald Hoffman on the Intelligent Medicine podcast for a two-part conversation on just that. We discussed my upcoming book, Drop Acid, and the hidden dangers of elevated uric acid. It's time we start looking at it as more than just some waste product that causes kidney stones and gout!
I have read today's email on magnesium. As a patient of Crohn's Disease, I have been fortunate to have had some wonderful, caring doctors. The best advice I was given on magnesium was around 1990 by a holistic physician. At that time he was practicing in Hamden, CT and is now in Sag Harbor. If I recall correctly, it required a 24 hour urine collection, and the most absorbable form was magnesium chloride (which has become more difficult to get). The second (and probably equally important) best piece of advice was provided by you for Fisol, Omega-3 fish oil. If I really get into trouble, which is infrequent, I lay off the magnesium and take a lot of fish oil. Additionally I take astragalus, NAC and D-3, but I attribute my general good health to magnesium and omega-3 fish oil. And no calcium to deplete the magnesium levels. You are one of my heroes. I wish you the best.

Dear Doc I seemed to have missed this podcast. What supplements do you recommend for prevention of Covid? Thanks
Dear Doc Can someone have the covid have no symptoms and still be contagious? Thanks
Would the book Medical Nihilism, be something that a lay person like myself would be able to understand? From what you described on your website, this book sounds like what I have thought about the medical industry for a long time.
I don't see itunes podcasts. Did you stop those?
Hey Dr Hoffman...I remember about 20 years ago almost nightly on your radio show you were very enthusiastic about the use of Vitamin D and EGCG because of all the nascent research that was going on at that time with these supplements.... Since that time which other nutrients have you become very enthusiastic about?
Let’s talk about plants. They offer so many nutrients including plant sterols and sterolins, also known as phytosterols, that are found in fruits and vegetables. So, what’s so great about them? These plant sterols and sterolins offer immune-enhancing properties and can activate the cells that regulate immunity and offer support to daily immune system health. Pretty great right? Learn more about plant sterols from Dr. Ronald Hoffman and Jim LaValle 👇
