Dr. Berkson chats with Dr. Perlmutter who is a unique doctor that teaches tools to become more mindful in today’s mind-boggling times.
Watch on YouTube here Dr. Leo Galland Dr. Galland is a pioneer in studying the impact of intestinal microbes (the gut microbiome) and overall health, especially with excessive gut wall permeability (“leaky gut”). A graduate of Harvard University and New York University School of Medicine, Dr. Galland is board-certified in internal medicine listed in the Leading Physicians of the World and America’s Top Doctors. In This Show Dr Galland explains what types of dysbiosis may lead to increased vulnerabilities of getting COVID-19. And, conversely, how Covid might adversely affect the gut microbiome. He also explains and names, which nutraceuticals and [...]
Dr. Zach Bush is one of the few triple board-certified physicians in the country. His expertise is in Internal Medicine, Endocrinology and Metabolism, and Hospice/Palliative care yet, besides medical science, Dr. Bush has now focused his research and spirit toward the planet and it’s link with the human gut. Dr. Bush started out designing chemotherapy drugs and now formulates nutraceuticals that can overcome ubiquitous toxins, such as his revolutionary liquid gut product: “Restore”. In this show you join in on a dynamic dialogue that inspires you to rethink how we occupy this precious planet we all share. Dr. Bush’s new research [...]
Today’s show explores your microbiomes, difference between breast biomes that "live" in a breast with cancer versus healthy breast tissue, and even how pollution can attack these microbes. You will learn how to "test" and "caretake" your precious biomes. You’ll also learn how Pollution Attacks Your Biomes and what you can do about it. Inside the human body are nooks and crannies, called biomes, teeming with microbial life that includes viruses, bacteria and fungi. We have “biomes” throughout our entire body. We have biomes in our eyes (the ocular biome), mouth (oral biome), in our esophagus, stomach, small intestine, colon [...]
What are biomes? Teeming bacteria, viruses, and fungi live and thrive in nooks and crannies throughout a typically healthy human body. There are much more of “them” than there are of “us.” In fact, there are nine cells of this “foreign” microbial life for every one of your own cells. These microbes reside in pockets metaphorically referred to as internal “rain forests” or “hidden zoos”—swarming with activity and sending signals to your brain and other tissues, greatly influencing how health unfolds. These pockets of microbial life are called “biomes.” The most well-known biome occupies the warm, moist, nutrient-rich large intestine,known as [...]
In this show you will hear probiotic myths explored and busted. You will discover the “mucosal system” and what this has to do with protecting your health. Kiran and Dr. Berkson discuss probiotics facts and fiction: Differences between “live” and “dead” probiotics. What are “spores”, Do you need to refrigerate probiotics? What are “gut model studies” and why are they critical? How esophageal reflux is linked to downstream intestinal gases from pathogenic overgrowth What you should expect from a great probiotic You learn that bacterial translocation (leaky gut) occurs in most of us after most meals but in a very [...]
It's a good good idea to avoid glyphosate (RoundUp) even at home. It’s spring so be mindful of what you and your neighbors use “around” your homes as it gets “into” your homes and into your bodies. I belong to a community of health professionals, called MindShare that supports each other in serving the consciousness of the planet on safety and human health. Recently, one member posted a comment that her gardener boyfriend wanted to use RoundUp on weeds close to their home, and didn’t think there was any science that backed up adverse issues with this small amount of personal [...]
Functional gastroenterologist Dr. Kenneth Brown, looks at the bigger picture including food and herbs to heal America’s ill guts. The gut has been called the 2nd brain, the mother ship of our health, the seat of our immune system, and the place where we get our authentic gut instinct—if all is working well. But if your gut is ill, “all” of you can feel miserable. This is difficult to appreciate if you haven’t experienced serious gut issues. But millions have. 60-70 million Americans suffer with gastrointestinal disease 240,000 deaths yearly from severe gastrointestinal disease (this number is similar to the [...]
To artificially sweeten or not to sweeten, that is the question! Learn 7 benefits of stevia (and a few pitfalls!)Dr. Devaki Lindsey Berkson2019-04-03T10:04:17-05:00
TV ads have taught today’s youth that diet colas make us dance, prance, and smile as we get the pretty girl or handsome guy. We even are taught to imagine we can slurp the artificially sweet stuff and keep our waistlines thin and trim. Many today are addicted to the bubbly strong sweet taste and think they’re doing themselves a favor since they aren’t drinking sugar-filled sodas. What’s the big deal? A lot! Since the use of artificial sweeteners, from sucralose to aspartame, has been increasing, a group of researchers wanted to see how safe these types of alternative sugars were. [...]
Our toxic soup is attacking our gut bugs, and thus our overall health. Intestinal gut bugs (microbial flora) are in constant communication with our immune system, hormones and brain. If we are toxic, flush with endocrine disrupting pollutants, many of our systems can go south. Take action!
