Inflammation 101 - Steve Whiting, PhD

Our esteemed scientific advisory board member, Steve Whiting, PhD, does a fabulous job of explaining why inflammation can be your best friend or your worst enemy. He also discusses the importance of choosing a natural anti-inflamatory whenever possible.

Hey Ellen,

This scientist is not only brilliant, he is HOT.

....that he is. Dr. Whiting redefines our image of a molecular biochemistry geek, doesn't he?

EyeDoc said...

This is GREAT patient friendly information. Better than the overly scientific info I received in a recent CE course.

Does Dr. Whiting have other video clips on youtube?

Ellen Troyer, MT MA said...

Yes he does. Go to youtube.com and type Dr. Whiting into the search bar.

If you have a youtube account I'm sure he would appreciate it if you would take the time to rate the health information he provides.

If you don't have one it only takes a minute to set one up and it's free.

Why don't we see blog posts and responses from other members of your advisory board and science staff? Blog posts and comments are a great way for the public to actually know something about the folks we do business with.

I have heard that Dr. Whiting's products are available at the fitness center Curves....are they available anywhere else?

I like how Dr. Whiting speaks in lamans terms. He doesn't talk above our heads nor does he talk down to us. I looked at some of his other videos and he is very informative. He talks about interesting topics as well.

Dr. Whiting is right on target. Biosyntrx is fortunate to have him on its Scientific Advisory Board.

What he says about the dangers of polyunsaturated oils (such as flax seed oil and corn oil) in the diet, should be taken to heart. We tend to consume foods that enhance chronic inflammation, rather than that which is nutritionally sound, enhancing body defenses.

Inflammation may play a major role in the conditions and diseases we previously labeled "aging", and silent inflammation, as in atherosclerosis, arthritis, and Alzheimer's can, as Dr. Whiting points out, be helped with proper nutritional formulas.
