Episode Description

I am delighted to be joined today by Dr. Lawrence Afrin, who has just published a ground-breaking book called 'Never Bet Against Occam: Mast Cell Activation Disease and the Modern Epidemics of Chronic Illness and Medical Complexity.' Mast cell activation is a very underappreciated component of chronic illness today and we encourage you to listen to today's program so that you can understand how it may impact your health and how you can recover from it.

Consumers are deluged with information about health; some of it is accurate and valuable, and some of it is misleading, erroneous, self-serving and wrong.

It is our hope that this program will become the premier go-to site for consumers and interested medical practitioners to obtain the most in-depth information in this field that is available today. We hope to educate about and explore the controversies and treatments currently in use at a level of clarity and practicality that we believe is not available anywhere else.

The goal is improved quality of life and new hope for those who have been struggling with their health care to date. We will be discussing the entire field of health with special emphasis on Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue, Lyme disease, Mold toxicity and Pain.
