  • Title: Rob Verkerk and Mel Aldridge Part 1 Vaccine Transparency and the Immune System
  • Published Date: 2020-11-26
  • Description:

    This episode is not an anti-vax screed but simply a request for data so we can approach vaccination for SARS-CoV-2  with full informed consent. Informed consent is the foundation of medical practice. The American Medical Association Code of Medical Ethics Opinion 2.1.1 states, "Informed consent to medical treatment is fundamental in both ethics and law.  Patients have the right to receive information and ask questions about recommended  treatments so they can make well-informed decisions about care." Informed consent also includes the role of conflicts of interest. How does the group promoting the medical treatment stand to financially benefit?

    Vaccine data transparency will enable all of us as human citizens of the world to exercise our rights to give informed consent when the time comes to receive the SARS-CoV-2 vaccine.

  • Title: Macronutrients: Lipids
  • Published Date: 2020-11-19
  • Description:

    In my clinical practice there were people who followed low fat diets or ate highly processed food full of fake fat. This led to skin changes, brain changes, dull hair, low vitamin D, and low sex steroid hormones like testosterone. These are just a few changes that can occur from following low fat diets or eating damaged plastic fats in processed food. Fat is critical to keep the human body held together and running properly. It's time to embrace real food  that has generous portions of good fats like olive oil, fish, organic vegetables, and meat sources from pastured raised  or free range raised animals. It's time to turn our backs on processed fake plastic fats that gum up our metabolism and make us sick.

  • Title: Macronutrients: Carbohydrates and the Scourge of Chronic Disease
  • Published Date: 2020-11-05
  • Description:

    Carbohydrates are the most abundant organic components in most fruits, vegetables, legumes, and cereal grains, and they are added as simple sugars to many processed foods to provide texture and flavor. The fundamental basic carbohydrate currency is glucose. Glucose serves as a precursor for synthesis of all other carbohydrates that are important components of body fluids, structural matrix, membranes, and cell surfaces.  Carbohydrates are critical for  human life but not in the overabundant destructive form of simple sugars we are awash in today when eating the Standard American Diet. Let's take a tour of the science, where we are, and  the path away from chronic disease.

  • Title: Michael P Cohen Neurofeedback for Brain Health Part 2
  • Published Date: 2020-10-15
  • Description:

    From Michael P Cohen: "Unfortunately, most physicians and healthcare professionals are unfamiliar with neurofeedback technology and its many applications. This is in part because there is no large industry, such as the pharmaceutical industry, that benefits from educating physicians about it. Even those who do know about it haven’t invested the time necessary to learn about it. At Center for Brain, we’ve been studying and working with neurofeedback technology for more than two decades and know exactly how to use it to help people with a variety of brain-based conditions."

    Since 1996 Mike has devoted his life to learning about, using, teaching and perfecting the art and science of neurofeedback and biofeedback. In the process of helping thousands of adults and children, he’s become one of the most sought-out experts in the U.S. on the topic.
