An expert is someone who has succeeded in making decisions and judgements simpler through knowing what to pay attention to and what to ignore.

William Shaw, Ph.D., is board certified in the fields of clinical chemistry and toxicology by the American Board of Clinical Chemistry - with a profound interest in brain toxins. Before he founded The Great Plains Laboratory, Inc. in Lenexa, KS, Dr. Shaw worked for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Children's Mercy Hospital, the University of Missouri at Kansas City School of Medicine, and Smith Kline Laboratories.
I've followed his work for many years, use Great Plains Laboratory for biomedical testing every day in my practice, and am exceedingly pleased to share these moments with his profound experience for our CBJ listeners. Recently Dr. Shaw added GPL-TOX to measure brain toxins to Great Plains Labs armamentarium of essential mind tools. This CBJ Special 1-hour review will help listeners understand this possible next step for treatment failure globally.
Ed Note: See Dr. Shaw's Bonus Notes below ↓ with many brain toxin reference topics for further review on this essential measurement tool.
It's important to note that he is the author of two outstanding contributions to the evolution for the treatment of Autism, Biological Treatments for Autism and PDD, originally published in 1998, and Autism: Beyond the Basics, published in 2009. He is also a frequent speaker at conferences worldwide, a global authority with broad experience with the value of laboratory data and molecular insights regarding imbalanced brain functions.
On a more personal note, Dr. Shaw is the stepfather of a child with autism and has helped thousands of patients and medical practitioners to successfully improve the lives of people with autism spectrum disorders, ADHD/Executive Function, Alzheimer's disease, arthritis, bipolar disorder, chronic fatigue, depression, fibromyalgia, immune deficiencies, multiple sclerosis, OCD, Parkinson's disease, seizure disorders, tic disorders, Tourette's syndrome, and other serious conditions.
In this interview, we discuss useful details regarding the evolution and immediate value of measurements for brain toxins about many of these conditions.

Special thanks, Dr. Shaw for your fresh, data-driven brain toxin insights to reconsider how laboratory measures can reveal abundant details for clinical options to address treatment failure in multiple brain and biomedical conditions. Your additional bonus references take your interview insights into global immediacy. Thank you from all of us for all of your extraordinary work on so many levels over the years.
126 Dr. Andrew Farah, is a forensic psychiatrist, psychopharmacologist, and the author of a remarkable new book: Hemingway’s Brain. We enjoyed an excellent discussion on Hemingway, his life, death and the reasons for his suicide at CBJ/114. This interview, our second CBJ discussion, takes our conversations even deeper into the molecular reality of neurophysiologic imbalances - deeper than Freud might consider - regarding the Psychopathology of Everyday Life. Dr. Farah is at once transcendent, entertaining, and prescient regarding awareness changes today taking place in both our society and our neuroscience community. Fasten your seatbelts as he now shares his interesting insights on Homocysteine measurement and treatment for multiple levels of psych treatment failure.
