A New Solution for Healing Nerve Pain ( Neuropathies, sciatica, Shingles,injuries) with Gad Gilad Ph.d. and Gary Young, DC
Dr. Gad M. Gilad and Varda H. Gilad began their careers in the early 1970s as scientists at Cornell University and The Rockefeller University, respectively. Their common scientific interests led them to join forces and begin a long lasting legend of a husband and wife team effort aimed at unraveling molecular mechanisms, which underlie the ability of the nervous system to cope with traumatic injury and stress. They worked together at several academic centers including the National Institutes of Health, the Weizmann Institute of Science and Harvard University. They received numerous research grants and several awards including, awards from The Weizmann Institute of Science and the Curt Richter Prize from the International Society of Psychoneuroendocrinology. The Gilads have published together over 100 scientific papers and several patents. In 1994 they discovered the neuroprotective properties of agmatine (a metabolite of the amino acid arginine) and patented its use for enhancing the nervous system ability to cope with injury and disease. In 2000, following years of extensive experimental scientific research to characterize the molecular mechanisms underlying agmatine's action, the Gilads founded the Company to pursue the commercial development of G-agmatine®(Gilad&Gilad's exclusive trademarked brand of agmatine) as a nutraceutical supplement. In 2004 they initiated human Clinical Trials, which demonstrated the safety and efficacy of dietary G-agmatine® in providing healthier spine-nerve structure/function benefits and affording sciatic nerve pain-free functions. These landmark studies are considered a 'proof-of-concept' for the safe and effective use of nutraceutical supplements containing G-agmatine® to support healthier nervous system functions. In 2009 the Company set up headquarters in Los Angeles and established commercial production and marketing base for the exclusive For-Nerve-HealthTM line and the leading product AgmaSet® (NeurofencineTM).
Science writer Gary Taubes seeks to debunk the standard "calories in-calories out" model of diet and nutrition. He argues that carbohydrates, and their ensuing insulin production, are the true source of weight gain, and that insulin's regulation of fat tissue is the true source of our modern obesity epidemic.
Gary Taubes is the author of several books about scientific controversy: Nobel Dreams, Bad Science: The Short Life and Weird Times of Cold Fusion, and Good Calories, Bad Calories. He has won the Science in Society Award of the National Association of Science Writers three times.
