Dr. Pamela Smith is one of the most well-known lecturers in functional medicine. Her latest book is called Max Immunity. This show is all about how to keep healthy especially in a pandemic.
In this show you will hear: We need to be guided by science, but science doesn't have black-and-white answers. A call for common sense and reason. A need to not be nonchalant about steroids. Steroids and Bones Steroids and Clots Steroids and Your Immune System Steroids and Glaucoma Comparing Mask Material by the University of Arizona Food, Probiotics and Depression Aging Plasticity, Chronic low-grade Inflammation, Belly Fat and Eosinophils Sugar consumption when pregnant: what starts in the womb….

Hear all about Low-Dose Naltrexone from Pam W. Smith, MD, MPH – an Anti-Aging Medicine Specialist. Dr. Smith is an international expert on LDN and was a guest speaker at the first international LDN conference in Australia in 2019. Dr. Smith created and teaches many of the modules that certify MDs, pharmacists and NPs to become board-certified as functional practitioners. For the past decade Dr. Berkson and Dr. Smith have often lectured together most recently, team teaching a 16-hr. hormone course a few months ago in Salt Lake, City. Naltrexone is used in high dosages in the ER for drug [...]
Pomegranates are as close to a miracle food as Mother Nature gets. Pomegranates protect your heart, safeguard your estrogens, “sensitize” insulin receptors better than many diabetic drugs without nasty side effects, slow down aging, and fight cancer. A pomegranate a day keeps the Mack truck of disease away! My grandmother often said, in her very thick Russian accent, “If it sounds too good to be true, it usually is too good to be true.” This does not seem to be the case with these juicy purple fruits and kernels (arils). Pomegranates fight against lots of bad stuff. Anti-inflammatory Anti-oxidant Anti-bad [...]
Bacterial Assault Every time you take a breath you inhale a wallop of bugs. Bacteria are present in just about every breath of air you take. The question then becomes, how do your airways protect you from a multitude of on-going infections? Turns out that when bacteria are inhaled through a snort, tiny fluid-filled sacs called exosomes directly attack the bacteria. Uber-protective anti-microbial proteins also head over to the battle so they can aid in on the attack. The whole idea is to deal with the invaders locally so the rest of you doesn’t have to. All this is taking place [...]
Zinc lozenges have long been sold at local health food stores and pharmacies to treat the common cold. But a new study out of Finland proves the exact do’s and don’ts to help you help yourself when sniffles start to surface. According to a meta-analysis (looking at data from a number of studies to attempt to separate fact from fiction) of three randomized controlled trials, “zinc acetate” lozenges (with zinc dosages 80 to 92 mg/day) were found to boost recovery rates from the common cold by 300%. On the fifth day 70% of the patients sucking on the zinc lozenges had [...]
5 Steps To Protect Yourself by Berkson The environment is now a major part of our health issues. To trek from doctor’s office to doctor’s office looking for solutions to your health problems, without addressing your environment, is sticking your head in the sand and could be preventing you from getting or staying well. Many of us live under urban “Pigpen” clouds. In the air, although you cannot see it, is a fine particulate matter that you inhale. That cloud of tiny particles hammers your respiratory health and adversely affects your intestinal lining and brain tissue. So part of being healthy, [...]
Timing is everything — in war, timing can make all the difference between a hero and a traitor; in love, and timing can produce a happy relationship or a horrific break-up. Now, timing also affects our ability to fight off disease. Our immune defense appears to lean on our internal physiologic clock. Researchers at the Yale University School of Medicine were able to show that the ability of the immune system to recruit appropriate surveillance and fight off pathogens (bad bugs), was timing related. To have a healthy immune system we need to be in timing sync with light and dark. [...]
