Host Ellen Kamhi PhD, RN interviewed Dr. Sidney Kurn and the topic is his recently published book: Herbs and Nutrients for Neurologic Disorders, which he co-wrote with Sheryl Shook PhD.
Sidney J. Kurn, M.D., has been a practicing neurologist since 1979, adding acupuncture to his practice in 1994 and herbal medicine in 1996. He received his medical degree from Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. He lives and maintains private practice in Santa Rosa, California.
Numerous medical journals have published studies supporting the use of herbs and nutrients in the treatment of neurodegenerative disorders. Yet in practice most neurologists rarely include them as part of their protocols. In this practical guide, Sidney Kurn, M.D., and Sheryl Shook, Ph.D., explain how to safely and easily incorporate herbs, antioxidants, and nutritional supplements into the standard conventional treatments for 6 common neurologic disorders: Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, multiple sclerosis, stroke, migraine, and seizures.
