2019-06-28T14:40:44-05:00

A mind is like a parachute. It works best when open. But what if your mind is closing down?This show is about cognitive decline, one of the worst cases being Alzheimer’s disease, with an interview of the scientist and medical neurologist who is successfully reversing and preventing this brain disease and keeping parachutes open - Dr. Dale Bredesen.In this extraordinary show you will hear from the doctor who has published 226 peer review articles on the brain and dementia:What are the 5 sub-types of Alzheimer’s disease?Why do most Alzheimer meds fail?How 1500 doctors trained in Bredesen’s techniques are reversing Alzheimer’s (and [...]

Can Cancer Survivors Take Hormones? (#119)

2019-06-28T14:40:55-05:00

In the introduction, you will learn one of the new uses for oxytocin as well as a huge meta-analysis review study demonstrating that the most commonly used drugs for Alzheimer’s disease not only don’t work but make dementia worse.The major part of this show discusses the science on how “maleness” protects “femaleness” — how Mother Nature designed breasts to be protected by male sex steroid hormone signals.Dr. Berkson dives into the peer review literature from 2010 to the present. We explore the use of testosterone therapy immediately “after” breast cancer treatment has ended, and one case study in which testosterone and aromatase inhibitor [...]

7 Ways to Protect Your Brain (#45)

2019-07-30T08:26:07-05:00

Protect Your Brain Gila CellsDr. Berkson shares science-based steps to protect the glia cells in your brain that "feed" and "protect" brain and central nervous system nerves (neurons). If glia cells age, we age. Protecting glia cells is demonstrated to slow down brain aging, which is the real deal in achieving effective anti-aging. Berkson goes through what glia cells are, how they have been identified in corpse research to protect the brain as they do. She shares exact steps you can add into your daily life to keep your brain healthier, younger and more cognitively fit by care-taking these brain-supportive cells. [...]

Parsley and Sophisticated Brains

2019-02-14T13:44:03-05:00

Sophisticated Brains Since "higher" consciousness seems to come from the ability to have broader, healthier brain connections, here is one of my favorite spices that boosts BOTH brain connectivity and integration. Parsley and its main flavonoid: apigenin. Apigenin promotes integration and connection between multiple brain cells. And it's found in this herb you can use in salads, cooking and smoothies. By the way parsley’s flavonoid also balances and protects hormone metabolism. (Why I have been recommending a special parsley green drink for years to appropriate patients.) Apigenin boosts strong brains. It strengthens memory, learning and focus. It promotes more sophisticatedly brain [...]

Brain Size Matters

2018-10-24T19:33:59-05:00

We saw this just last week with the Medi-diet linked to less brain shrinkage and more brain volume. Size matters. Especially with your brain. Our biggest fears these days, understandably, is: will I outlive my wits or my money, but without my wits, what good is my money or how will I keep holding on to it, or making it? Valid questions. Part of the Answer It is very good to know that what we CHOOSE to put into these lips of ours, into our guts and microbiomes, matters. The take home is, we have some control. Yippee! Hot Off the [...]

Alzheimer’s disease is now the new Type-3 Diabetes

2018-10-30T21:07:18-05:00

Alzheimers disease is now the new Type-3 Diabetes. This means that if type-2 diabetes runs in your family, you should get a 4-hr glucose/insulin test, along with taking drugs or nutrients that activate the insulin receptor (PPARg) for prevention, which research has shown does prevent Alzheimer's onset. But you need to work with an in-the-know doctor/consultant/health coach as it takes strategy and planning to keep your brain safe. Metformin or herbs proven in randomized trials to work like that are top of the list considerations. And it is not just avoiding high glycemic foods, but avoiding overeating, and also identifying and avoiding [...]
