    Dr. Mike Stierstorfer Website:  podcast.stopmyibs.com Transcription:Intro00:02Welcome to changing the rules, a weekly podcast about people who are living their best lives and advice on how you can achieve that too.  Join us with your lively host, Ray Lowe, better known as the luckiest guy in the world.Ray Loewe00:17Good morning, everybody. And welcome to changing the rules. Changing the rules is a weekly podcast where every week we try and highlight what we think is one of the luckiest people in the world. So the luckiest people in the world are people who redesign their own lives, under their own terms and live them the way they want. And they're usually people who think outside of the box when they address problems and issues. And they don't, they're not constrained to the rules of life. You know, one of the things that we find is that all through our lives were given rules that we're supposed to live with. And we're given them by our parents, and then by the schools. And sometimes we get saddled with so many rules that they become barriers to doing what we want to do and what we need to do. And we have with us today, one of the luckiest people in the world, and you're gonna see that he just attacks problems in an entirely different way. He doesn't let himself be constrained by the norms. And because of that, he has successes that other people don't have. So, Mike, Mike Stierstorfer did I pronounce that right today, Mike? You did. That's amazing in itself. Okay. But welcome to changing the rules. And let me give people a little background on you. I found out something unusual. I live in a little town called Lancaster, Pennsylvania. And I asked Mike if he had heard about it. Then he said, Well, I have to go to school there. He went to Franklin and Marshall. So he knows more about this place than I do. And then he went from there on to Temple to get his MD and set up his own practice as a dermatologist, which is really interesting, because of the work he's doing is an entirely different area. And he's been on the staff at the University of Pennsylvania Hospital for a long time teaching interns, teaching residents, is that correct? Mike? Dermatology residents? Yes. Okay, so so he's got incredibly great credentials for what he's doing. And so let's start off, Mike with an event that occurred, I think, was on July 3, 2008.Dr. Mike Stierstorfer  02:39That was the exact day that it happened. And I remember it so well because it was a beautiful day, the day before Fourth of July. And I had lunch at a Mexican restaurant. And within an hour or so after lunch, I started getting an upset stomach, some nausea, and belly pain. And I assumed it was from something I had just eaten and that it would go away by the next day like things usually do. Turns out those same symptoms persisted for the better part of the following year, accompanied by some other symptoms that pretty much qualified for criteria that are used to diagnose irritable bowel syndrome. And that's where everything started. That day, I remember it well, because that night I was walking around, everybody's having a nice time and I'm walking around with an upset stomach, not too happy that I was missing out on all the fun.Ray Loewe03:35Okay, so let's take a minute and talk about this thing called irritable bowel syndrome. It's not it's not something we enjoy talking about on the air. But it is a problem that many, many, many people have, and is not easily diagnosed and solved. So give us a little bit of the background and then we're gonna go into some of the unique solutions that you've been able to come up with.Dr. Mike Stierstorfer  04:01Yes, so irritable bowel syndrome is extremely common. It affects 10 to 15% of Americans or 30 to 45 million Americans. And over 50% of those people with IBS report that foods aggravate their symptoms. It's been felt to be what's called a functional disorder. In other words, one of the in which there's nothing physically wrong. There are several criteria that make up the diagnosis of IBS. You have to have belly pain at least once a week for the past three months, once at least six months prior to that. And it needs to be accompanied by things like onset of the symptoms being associated with changing the way your stool looks either looser or harder. Also, or accompanied by the pain getting better or worse with a bowel movement and also, the bowels moving more or less frequently. Um, upon onset of the symptoms, so there's very strict criteria that are used to make the diagnosis.Ray Loewe05:06Okay? And the cure for this is a traditional process is you go to a gastroenterologist, and they have a process for diagnosing this, which is not necessarily the most pleasant thing in the world to go through right?Dr. Mike Stierstorfer  05:20Yeah, they pretty much want to rule out other things that could have a more detrimental long-term consequence to your health. They want to rule out things like inflammatory bowel disease, Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis, gluten sensitivity, celiac disease, things like that even colon cancer. So they want to make sure you don't have that. And sometimes they can do that just clinically by asking you questions and examining you. But often these people go through a lot of testing with various types of scopes, and blood tests and radiographic tests, even CAT scan. So there's a lot often that goes into the evaluation before they come to the conclusion it's just IBS. I shouldn't say just IBS, because it can be a serious problem, too. Yeah.Ray Loewe06:04So so here you are in an entirely different field. Okay. And unfortunately, you're having these symptoms. So what happened here? What did you do you know, what's the new way you look at this thing?Dr. Mike Stierstorfer  06:21So for the better part of the year, I had these symptoms, I had the big evaluation that didn't find anything. And finally, about a year later, I was trying to determine whether foods are playing a role I avoided gluten, I avoided lactose things that are known to cause GI issues. Nothing helped about a year into it, I got a lucky break, really, I ate Indian dinners at the same restaurants twice within a week of one another. And both times, my symptoms flared up severely worse than normal, but they're the same kind of symptoms I was usually getting. So I knew it was something in the food I was eating for the first time. And I knew it wasn't the Indian spices because I in general, don't eat them that often. And I was having these symptoms, on average, probably half the days. So the thing that I thought about because it's in pretty much everything we eat unless we're intentionally trying to avoid it was garlic. So I just stopped eating garlic. And literally the next day, my symptoms were completely gone. At that point, I felt that this had to be a new allergy to garlic because you can become allergic to something at any point in time, it doesn't have to be something new, repeat exposure, you could come allergic to it. So I set out to try to determine what type of allergy this was. I didn't really know much about IBS, I wasn't really interested in GI as a medical student, I'm a dermatologist. So I first tried a blood test that would look for a peanut type allergy, which everybody's pretty familiar with. And that test was negative for garlic. That's the same kind of test that the allergist says with a prick and scratch test. So that's called a type one allergy, that was negative, I still was convinced it was an allergy. And in Dermatology, we do a type of allergy test called a patch test, frequently for people who have a rash called eczema and we suspect that their Eczema is being caused by something that's touching their skin, in other words, an allergic reaction causing their eczema type of rash. So that's a different type of allergy than the peanut allergy completely different. It's called a type four allergy skin kind of allergy just causes poison ivy, and I decided to do a patch test on myself to garlic. And the patch test was positive I got a red itchy spot on my skin after leaving the garlic there for two days. So my thought at that point was likely the same type of inflammation I was getting in the skin from the patch test from the garlic was occurring in the lining of the intestine when I ate any foods containing garlic. So another point I should mention is that until the early 2000s IBS was felt to be something where there was nothing physically wrong. But in the early 2000s, inflammation has been identified and a lot of people with IBS, both with biopsies of the intestine and with blood tests that show that there's inflammation going on in the body. So most of the time though this inflammation, they don't know what's causing it. So my thought was likely this allergic reaction caused by the garlic in the intestine was causing inflammation causing the IBS symptoms. At that point, I wanted to figure I wanted to find out who else had looked into this. So I googled it and I found that no one ever investigated patch testing the foods for irritable bowel syndrome. So that's when I started with the research on it. I've done several clinical trials now that have been published. And the conclusion of these studies was that by identifying specific foods not just garlic-like but because to overwhelm 80 things now was in the studies up to 117 or 120 Different foods, that over 50% of people we test get either moderate or great improvement in their IBS symptoms by limiting the foods that they identify are identified by the patch testing. So this was completely new information. If you ask the gastroenterologist about food allergies, and IBS, they say they don't play a role. And the reason for that is that it's been taught to them because of other studies that have looked at type one food allergies. And there's another type of allergy called a type three allergy to but those types of testing are not helpful for IBS. So it's ingrained into gastroenterologists that food allergies don't play a role with IBS type four allergy testing by patch testing had never been done for IBS before. So essentially, those prior studies looking at the other types of allergies were like, barking up the wrong tree looking for the wrong type of allergy, you wouldn't be able to check my garlic allergy by doing a type one allergy test.Ray Loewe11:06Okay, so now we have a whole new series of ways to investigate a problem that people had. Now there. First of all, let's talk a little bit about your successes here. So you are telling me when we did our prep call about an 11-year-old girl that you had some success with. And once you go through that particular description, and let's find out what happened.Dr. Mike Stierstorfer  11:35This was one of the most gratifying experiences I had using this testing. This girl was missing school two or three days a week. And her mom somehow learned about this testing that I was doing. And later, she mentioned that she didn't really think it was going to help but she thought I tried she tried anyway, because it was such a desperate situation. And this girl was allergic to benzoyl peroxide, which is used to bleach flour and some cheeses. And she was also allergic to something called pining alpha, which is a naturally occurring chemical that's found in parsley, carrots, parsnips, and celery. So these allergies were identified, she went on to eliminate those foods from her diet and she's 100% Better, she hasn't missed a day of school. And her mom said that when the girl gets sick, she would make her vegetable soup with all those vegetables. And she said I was poisoning my daughter. So yeah, this is an example where like, for me, it was, I was lucky because it was garlic. It was something I could figure out by the process of elimination just from what I had eaten and what I knew I didn't eat that often. But something like pining alpha, you would never be able to figure that out just by the like elimination diet or process of elimination. So this is where the patch testing really becomes useful.Ray Loewe13:01Okay, so so we have uncovered largely by chance, because you were the patient, right? You had a series of issues, and you wanted to solve them for yourself. So how does this figure it out into where the medical community is going with taking care of IBS?Dr. Mike Stierstorfer  13:23Well, this is really very early. We're just trying to get the message out there to doctors and to patients about this. That's not an easy task. The goal is that eventually, we hope that the first thing that we've done with people with IBS is this patch testing before subjecting them to all these invasive procedures and radiographic studies where they get radiation and not to mention the cost of those procedures and then putting them on all these different medications that may or may not help at some are quite expensive. Some of them are up to $1,000 a month. So we feel that this testing should be a first-line option for patients with IBS. It's a very simple solution, it identifies specific foods, it's much easier to typically avoid foods found here than doing something like the low FODMAP which is a popular diet for people with IBS, which is very difficult to fall involve lots of different foods here with the patch so you can avoid one or two specific foods or three or four whatever we find and potentially get better. So the goal is that this will be a first-line option for people with IBS and save them a lot of aggravation, testing, and treatments that don't work and expense that goes along with it.Ray Loewe14:43and this isn't stuff that has to go through FDA approval and stuff because the tests are, are approved. It's just a question of getting the medical community to look at this as an option for treating and cure, right?Dr. Mike Stierstorfer  14:57So the tests are done with what are called compounded allergens and compounded. And these are considered medications by the FDA So, but because they're compounded, there are a set of guidelines using compounded medications for patients where they don't actually have FDA approval, they have to be prescribed for a specific patient and a patient's name. And they have to the manufacturing of these allergens has to be done by a licensed compounding pharmacist following what are called USP guidelines. So it's accessible to properly licensed doctors and other providers now, as long as they do it in a specific patient's name.Ray Loewe15:41Yeah. And what percentage, you know, IBS is caused by a whole lot of things, right. But when you look at the kinds of things that you're trying to address here is do you have any idea of what percentage of the IBS community or what communities are the wrong word, but,the problems that can be fixed by this?Dr. Mike Stierstorfer  16:04Well, yeah, you're right. IBS probably is caused by a lot of different things. But our studies have shown that a significant percentage of these people have these food allergies. In my studies, within the patients who have long-term follow-up, were getting an eight to 10 improvement on a scale from zero to 10, of about a third of the patients and moderate improvement or five to seven on a scale of 10 and another 25%. So I don't know the exact number, but I would venture to guess that probably at least 25%, if not higher than that conservatively, have food allergies that are contributing are completely causing their symptoms.Ray Loewe16:43Well, cool. You know, we're unfortunately, we're near the end of our time already. And I find it fascinating to talk to people like you because you think outside the box. And that's why you are one of the luckiest people in the world. You're not constrained to normal things. You know, you're thinking outside the box, and you're making progress. So where are you going to go from here? What's the next step?Dr. Mike Stierstorfer  17:08Well, I do, I do want to just follow up on that comment, right. And I do feel in a lot of ways that I have been extremely lucky to make this discovery really was a very lucky setup circumstance, I pretty much followed my nose. This was not an epiphany that I came up with. But it involves a lot of luck. To make the discovery IBS has been described since 1944. And no one ever before recognize this connection between this type of allergy type four food allergy detectable by patch testing and IBS symptoms. So the luck involved. The fact that first of all, I developed irritable bowel syndrome, some people may call it bad luck, but in a lot of ways, for many people with IBS, it was very good luck. And even for me that I was able to find something that relieve my symptoms. Also, it was lucky that it happened to be garlic and that I ate those two Indian dinners within a week of one another was able to make the connection to garlic was also lucky that I was a dermatologist and I had the tools and the knowledge and the resources to pursue this further. And was also lucky that it turned out to be a type of allergy that in Dermatology we deal with all the time, like for allergies, for allergic contact dermatitis. So there was a perfect storm of circumstances that created this lot that involve that enabled me to make this what I feel is a significant discovery in medicine.Ray Loewe18:35Yeah, but it takes some knowledge and it takes some effort and it takes some you got to follow the luck. Otherwise, the luck never materializes. So, you know, thank you so much for being with us. If people want more information, where can they go to find out more about you and more about what you're doing? And we'll post this, by the way in the notes on our podcast, so they'll be able to see it. But where do they go?Dr. Mike Stierstorfer  19:01Thank you. There's a URL. It's podcast.stopmyibs.com. And patients will be able to get and doctors get a lot of information there. And if they have questions beyond that, our contact information is available there on the website. So we're very happy to talk to anybody who'd like to discuss this further.Ray Loewe19:24Oh, cool. Well, thank you so much for being with us. And continue your great work. And maybe we'll uh another six months or so we'll have you back again. And we'll find out what's happened and where the progress has been. So have a great day. And thanks so much for being with us.Dr. Mike Stierstorfer  19:41Thank you very much.Outro  19:45Thank you for listening to changing the rules.

    Episode 99: Intermittent Fasting 99. By Danish Khalid, MS4; Sapna Patel, MS4; Ross University School of Medicine. Comments by Valerie Civelli, MD; and Hector Arreaza, MD.Intermittent caloric restriction may seem like a new trend, but Sapna and Danish discussed that actually fasting is practiced in different cultures and it has many health benefits, including weight loss. .  This is the Rio Bravo qWeek Podcast, your weekly dose of knowledge brought to you by the Rio Bravo Family Medicine Residency Program from Bakersfield, California. Our program is affiliated with UCLA, and it's sponsored by Clinica Sierra Vista, Let Us Be Your Healthcare Home. This podcast was created for educational purposes only. Visit your primary care provider for additional medical advice.D: Welcome and thank you for tuning back to our Nutrition series! Today, we want to give a shout out to one of our listeners. She brought up a topic that has recently gained public interest. Intermittent fasting. So, if you're listening, Hina Asad, this one's for you! Let's jump in! V: 2/3 women are overweight and obese. 1.5 pounds gained/yr on avg age 50-60's.S: So like we said earlier, intermittent fasting has recently gained much public interest as a weight loss approach. Or should I say, revitalized itself, as it has been around for years. It describes an eating pattern in which you alternate between periods of eating and fasting (or not eating). The length of each fast can vary in duration. A: There are feasting and fasting periods, or fed states and fasting states. What is more effective: Intermittent restriction of calories or continuous restriction of calories?  D: Before we dive in, let's go back. We know that calorie reduction has been consistently found to produce reduction in body weight and improve overall health. We talked about how to calculate our basal metabolic rate and subtracting calories from our daily caloric intake to result in weight loss. However, this can be difficult to sustain over a long period. Additionally, it requires that you adjust your caloric needs every so often as you lose weight, which can further make it difficult. So how is intermittent fasting different from this?   S: Well, in contrast to calorie reduction, intermittent fasting focuses on when calories are consumed and the total quantity consumed. Intermittent fasting works through an altered liver metabolism, referred to as the “metabolic switch.” It's where the body periodically switches from liver-derived glucose to adipose-derived ketones. In doing so, it stimulates an adaptive response including improved glucose regulation, improved insulin sensitivity, and increased stress resistance via conditioning. V: When you eat is more important than what you eat. Benefits: reducing cancer, Alzheimer's, DM risk, better sleep, less hangry(*find evidence).  D: What happens when we fast? In our previous podcast we mentioned ketosis, but let's talk about the physiology behind fasting.Feeding: blood sugar levels rise as we absorb food and insulin levels rise in response to move glucose into the cell. Excess glucose is stored as glycogen in the liver to convert it to fat.S: Postabsorptive phase (6-24hrs after beginning fasting): Blood glucose and insulin start to drop. To supply energy ,the liver starts to breakdown glycogen, releasing glucose. Glycogen stores last 24-36hrs. V: Insulin levels are low, and fat stores are available and improves mental clarityD: Gluconeogenesis (24hrs - 2 days after beginning fasting): Glycogen stores run out. The liver manufactures new glucose from amino acids called “gluconeogenesis” ( literally “making new glucose) S: Ketosis (2- 3 days after beginning fasting). A: Autophagy: “Auto” means self and “phagy” means eat. So the literal meaning of autophagy is “self-eating.”S: The protein conservation phase (5 days after beginning fasting): High levels of growth hormone maintain muscle mass and lean tissues. The energy for basic metabolism is mostly supplied by fatty acids and ketones. Blood glucose levels are maintained by gluconeogenesis using glycerol. Increased adrenaline levels prevent any decrease in metabolic rate. There is a normal amount of protein turnover, but it is not being used for energy. V: How long should we fast for?  D: Fasts can range from 12 hours to three month or more. We can categorize them as short (24 hours). However, shorter regimens are generally used by those mostly interested in weight loss. The short daily fasting regimens can be divided into the length of fasting - 12 hours fasts, 16 hours fasts, and 20 hours fasts.  S: Daily 12 hour fasting introduces a period of very low insulin levels during the day with 3 equally spaced meals throughout the day. This prevents the development of insulin resistance, making the 12 hour fast effective against obesity. Although a great preventative strategy, it is not the most effective at reversing weight gain.  D: Fun Fact: In years past, the 12 hour fasting period was considered a normal eating pattern. This probably explains why prior to the 1970s, there was much less obesity. It wasn't until the 1970s when the USDAs made dietary changes making a higher-carb and lower-fat diet a staple. That's when obesity started to rise.  S: On the other hand, during the 16 hour fasts most people skip the morning meal to account for the extra hours. In this regimen, you have an 8-hour eating window period, this is why it's also called time-restricted eating. Although you can still eat 3 meals most people tend to stick to 2 meals. The 16 hour fast certainly has more power than the 12 hour fast, but it should be combined with low-carb diets to allow for a slow and steady weight loss.  A: Feasting periods should not be so liberal, and over time it becomes easier to control hunger.  V: Feeding hours: healthy fats, proteins, fish, avocados, grass fed butter, unprocessed carbs (especially Low glycemic berries, squash, quinoa, vegetables, Low sugar, low alcohol intake… eating healthy basically. D: Fun Fact: A Swedish bodybuilder named Martin Berkha popularized this regimen, which is why you will also hear it being called the LeanGains method. V: Skipping breakfast reduces caloric intake by 20-40%, addresses visceral fat.S: Lastly, the 20-hour fasting regimen, also known as “the Warrior diet.”  Ancient warrior tribes such as Spartans and Romans devised a “warrior diet” in which all meals are eaten in the evening during a 4 hour window. This results in a 20-hour fasting period each day. This diet also emphasizes natural, unprocessed foods and high-intensity interval training. A: Summary: 12-hour, 16-hour, 20-hour. Dr. Jason Fung also recommends 24-hour fasting. It is basically skipping breakfast every day and skipping lunch 3 times a week. “Hunger is your friend”. D: Before we move forward, I just want to add that not all fasts are the same. For instance, I'm a Muslim, and there's a month where we fast for religious purposes, called Ramadan. During this time we fast from sunrise to sunset, or dawn to dusk. In contrast to traditional fasting, this fasting differs in that we don't eat or drink anything. Even water. Whereas in intermittent fasting it's different. Now, there have been studies done where they studied individuals during this time to see if there was any weight loss during this period. It was found that people typically lost about 1-2 pounds of weight. However, I do want to clarify this weight loss could be fat loss or muscle loss.  A: Another group of people who fast are Mormons. They traditionally fast once a month, the first Sunday of every month. It's a complete abstinence of food and water for 24 hours, skipping 2 meals. Fasting periods are linked to improve your spiritual well-being as well.  S: Certain Hindu festivals and holy days require devotees to observe fasting as part of their worship.  For example, Navarātrī, the nine-night celebration that occurs yearly. Some people take only water during these nine days, while some eat fruit while some eat one meal a day.  Hindus will observe fasts of varying strictness depending on individual beliefs or practices. Here are some examples of common fasts observed by Hindus:not partaking any food or water for a set number of days.limiting oneself to one specific vegetarian meal during the day.eating or drinking only certain food types for a set number of days.Avoiding eating certain food types for a set number of days.' S: So what can I consume when I fast? Do I have to completely stop eating and drinking for those hours? D: Only certain fluids can be consumed during fasting periods: water, tea and coffee ( iced or hot) and homemade bone broth. It's important for you to drink water frequently throughout the day. You can enjoy flat, mineral or carbonated water.   V: While Fasting: ok to have coffee, tea and water. Fasting creates a state of alertness.   S: What can you add to your water? Limes, lemons, sliced fruit (do not eat the fruit itself), vinegar, Himalayan salt, chia, and ground flaxseeds ( 1 tbsp in 1 cup water). Do not add sweetened powders even if it's sugar-free. D: You can consume up to 6 cups of caffeinated or decaffeinated coffee on a fasting day. Black coffee is preferred, but you can add up to 1 tbsp of certain fats in your coffee. These include: coconut oil, medium chain triglyceride oil (MCT oil), butter, ghee, heavy whipping cream (35% fat), half and half, whole milk, ground cinnamon for flavor. V: Ghee butter is clarified butter with no lactose.  A: You can curve appetite by drinking water, eating grains of salt, and drinking pickle juice (use a straw to avoid dental problems) S: You can consume unlimited herbal tea during your fasting period.  I know Danish and I both are Tea Connoisseurs. Right Danish? Teas can suppress your appetite, lower your blood sugar levels and are otherwise beneficial (positivi-tea). Bitter melon tea, black tea, cinnamon chai tea and oolong tea, help lower blood sugar levels. Peppermint tea and green tea help suppress appetite. Peppermint is good for GI discomfort such as gas and bloating. A: Peppermint oil is good for IBS. D: It's not uncommon to experience some lightheadedness during your first few days of fasting periods. This is often caused by dehydration and decreased levels of electrolytes. An easy remedy is a good homemade broth. Both vegetable and meat or bone broth will work. Things you can include in your broth: any vegetable that grows above the ground, leafy greens, carrots, onions, bitter melon, animal meat and bones (mostly bones, any animal), Himalayan salt, any herbs or spices, ground flaxseeds. Avoid vegetable puree, potatoes, yams, beets or turnips and store bought broths. (Dr. Fung). A: This is the end of this part on “How to fast”. Some people think fasting includes being hungry the whole day, but the “hungry” feeling goes away after 1 hour, and you learn to recognize the cues from your body about hunger and satiety. ___________________________________________________________________________ Now we conclude our episode number 99 “Intermittent Fasting 99.” This is not a complete guide to fasting, it's only a brief overview. Fasting has become a new nutritional trend with proven benefits. Remind your patients that one of the secrets of fasting is “delay, don't deny”, meaning they can delay eating a few hours and then enjoy what they like the most. Sapna, Danish and Dr. Civelli also reminded us to eat with moderation after breaking our fast to maintain the benefits of fasting. Even without trying, every night you go to bed being a little wiser.This week we thank Hector Arreaza, Sapna Patel, Danish Khalid and Valerie Civelli. Audio edition: Suraj Amrutia.

    If you've been a long-time listener, and you've heard episodes discussing hormones, and hormone therapy options to fix your hormones stay put because you haven't heard this. No one has talked about this on Flipping 50 before. In all the episodes I've discussed and similar discussions about micronutrients I've had with clients, it's never come up regarding how to fix your hormones. So, stay tuned.  Tired? And if you have chronic fatigue and think most doctors don't get it, we'll erase that thought before we're finished if not by the time I introduce my guest. There is something to be said about the understanding of a professional who has the science and training, but also is able to put that into practical steps with the empathy that comes only from knowing… from a “I've been there” place.  Exercise will be a part of your healing, though not the first part. Movement will be a bigger part to start. When you are ready for more, a 5 Day Flip may be a starting point with 5 days of short exercise sessions.  We're talking about something we haven't discussed in over 2 million downloads and 9 years of Flipping 50 podcasting.  My Guest: Yvonne Karney, MD is the founder and Chief Executive Officer of The Global Institute for Vitality Renewal, an organization dedicated to helping people live their whole lives with energy and focus.

Through this learning she found her true calling—helping other women with fatigue and brain fog. Through her proprietary RENEW Method™ she guides her clients through their healing journey to regain their energy and focus so they can get on with their lives and feel like themselves again! 00:00 Questions we answer on this podcast: 04:09 Tell us a little about your journey from a traditional Ob/GYN to becoming a functional medicine doctor? 06:03 Aside from your personal journey, what were a few of your "aha" moments that made you realize you needed to do things differently? 07:09 What do you mean by “It takes more than hormones to fix your hormones?” 09:49 If cell membrane damage is the problem are there things we can do to repair the cell membranes?

    EP371: Buy and Bill vs Pharmacy Bagging—Which Is Better for a Plan Sponsor and Patients? With Erik Davis and Autumn Yongchu

    Relentless Health Value

    Play Episode Listen Later Jun 23, 2022 32:44


    So, this is a 400-level episode in specialty pharmacy options for plan sponsors, meaning here are your prerequisites: You gotta know what buy and bill is, and you gotta know what pharmacy bagging is, meaning white bagging, for example. If you do not, I would listen to Encore! EP282 with Aaron Mitchell, MD, MPH, where we go deep on buy and bill. And then listen to EP369 for the skinny on pharmacy bagging. If you already know what buy and bill is and you already know what white bagging is, then not only do you know more than 98% of the people in the healthcare industry, but also, you're going to get as much out of this conversation with Erik Davis and Autumn Yongchu as I did.   Last week's show was also with Erik Davis and Autumn Yongchu. Last week, we talked about how some hospitals and cancer centers are managing to ring up up to six times the cost of an expensive-already injected or infused drug through buy and bill. This is why pharmacy bagging became a thing, if we want to talk about this in historical perspective. It's a direct market response to buy and bill. Hospital systems start making egregious amounts of money marking up drugs that already cost hundreds of thousands of dollars, and their markups are hundreds of thousands of dollars on top of that. Hospital starts making a fortune off of drug markups. Plan sponsors need an alternative, and … enter pharmacy bagging (ie, carving out specialty pharmacy drugs to a PBM [pharmacy benefit manager]). In this show, we compare the potential benefits and problematic loopholes and/or patient concerns for plan sponsors who are trying to figure out whether to carve out specialty pharmacy benefits to a PBM or grin and bear it with the buy and bill. Or, as another option, whether to steer patients to specific infusion centers or specific provider organizations that might have more favorable contract terms for the plan sponsor. Or, hooking up with a home infusion company, again, who is willing to negotiate terms that might be far better for said plan sponsor than just letting some hospital have their way with employees and the health plan. As another alternative, of course, plan sponsors could consider medical travel, which some certainly are. My biggest takeaway from this whole conversation and from the episodes that we have had in this, dare I call it, series about pharmacy benefits, starting with the show with Scott Haas (EP365) where we talked about PBM contracts, moving to the show with Dr. Aaron Mitchell (Encore! EP282) where we talked about buy and bill, then going to the show with Keith Hartman (EP369) where we talked about pharmacy bagging, then last week's show how hospitals manage to buy and bill at 6x the price of these expensive pharmaceuticals … my takeaway from this whole specialty drug extravaganza is that specialty drug procurement is very different than retail drug procurement. Retail drugs, you worry about them en masse at scale almost at the population level. Specialty drugs? You can have one patient on a specialty drug, and that one patient costs as much as the entire rest of the member population combined. So, managing specialty drugs and their administration becomes almost a case-by-case operation. What drug is it? Where is the patient? What options are available? It's possible to save hundreds of thousands of dollars on that one patient, for that one patient's care, and get better patient outcomes by getting the right patient on the right drug that is administered in the right setting.   You can learn more by connecting with Erik and Autumn on LinkedIn or by emailing them at erik.davis@usi.com and autumn.yongchu@usi.com.   Erik Davis, AAI, CIC, CRM, is senior vice president and principal consultant, managed care and analytics, at USI Insurance Services.
