    22-31 Palm Trees, Cactus… and the Three Keys To Healing Your Body

    22-31 Palm Trees, Cactus… and the Three Keys To Healing Your Body

    Episode 22:31 Palm Trees, Cactus… and the Three Keys To Healing Your Body
    Everybody wants to look their best.
    Feel their best.
    Perform their best.
    But there’s a problem.
    Our bodies don’t always cooperate.
    Something is always trying to keep us down.
    Some kind of ailment, sickness or disease that prevents us from looking, feeling and being our best.
    Going to the medical doctor doesn’t help.
    He/she simply gives us a drug to take… a drug that will silence the symptoms of the problem without addressing the cause.
    Not only that, these drugs come with side-effects that will require us to take even more drugs.
    It’s a vicious cycle.
    A cycle you CAN break if you choose.
    How?
    By learning to incorporate "the three keys to healing your body."
    Three keys that we discuss in detail on this episode.
    Give it good listen and then share it with a friend.
    Thanks!

    22-30 Five Simple Tips For Living A Happier, Healthier Life

    22-30 Five Simple Tips For Living A Happier, Healthier Life

    Episode 22:29 Five Simple Tips For Living A Happier, Healthier Life
    When my son decided to move from Alabama to San Diego I offered to help him.
    Not because I’m a great Dad… but because I wanted to see San Diego!
    Just kidding, lol.
    The truth is, the thought the idea of driving across the country… just he and I… sounded pretty good to me.
    Plus, I really did want to visit San Diego.
    So, off we went.
    I’m happy to report that our drive out there was wonderful… this country is beautiful… and the few days I got to spend in San Diego left me extremely impressed.
    So much so that I wrote down several “lessons” I learned… lessons that I share on this episode in the form of “five simple tips for living a happier and healthier life.”
    This episode is short (only 13 minutes), and the tips are simple, but very effective.
    Please give this episode a good listen and then share it with a friend.
    Thanks!

    22-29 The Healing Power Of Prayer

    22-29 The Healing Power Of Prayer

    Episode 22:29 The Healing Power Of Prayer
    On last week’s episode we talked about how God is NOT going to heal you.
    Why?
    Because He already has.
    That is, God has already made a way for you to be healed through the “stripes of Jesus.”
    As a result, the healing power of God ALREADY resides within you and is not something you need to “get.”
    It’s something you need to express.
    Something you need to activate and manifest.
    But how?
    The answer begins with PRAYER.
    On this episode we teach you how to pray effectively… in a manner that will allow you to experience more healing in your life and in the life of those around you.
    Please give this episode a good listen as it may radically improve your life.
    Then share it with a friend.
    Thanks!

    22-28 God is NOT Going To Heal You. Here’s Why…

    22-28 God is NOT Going To Heal You. Here’s Why…

    Episode 22:28 God is NOT Going To Heal You. Here’s Why…
    With BetyLou Pierce on vacation, I (Dr. George Burroughs) decided to use this episode to discuss a topic that is near and dear to my heart:
    Why God Is NOT Going To Heal You!
    Needless to say, I expect a lot of pushback… and that’s okay!
    All I ask is that you first listen to this episode and reflect upon the scriptures I use to support my stance.
    I think you will be surprised by what you learn.
    In addition, as a type of disclaimer, I want to say that I am a Christian man who believes in the healing power of God.
    I just think our perspective of HOW He heals has been distorted.
    Be sure to give this episode a good listen.
    Then, share it with a friend.
    Thanks!

    22-27 Side-Effects May Include…

    22-27 Side-Effects May Include…

    Episode 22:27 Side-Effects May Include…
    Most people know that EVERY drug carries with it the potential for negative side effects.
    Even aspirin.
    Unfortunately, what most people DON’T know is that severe illness and/or death is oftentimes one of these side effects.
    In fact, more Americans die each year from pharmaceutical drugs than from ANY other condition other than heart disease and cancer.
    Sad, but true.
    What’s even sadder is that many conditions can be treated WITHOUT pharmaceutical drugs and, therefore, WITHOUT the corresponding side effects.
    It’s called Holistic Medicine and it is an approach that focuses on using NATURAL remedies to restore a person’s health.
    Unfortunately, most medical doctors, and the medical profession as a whole, ignore all things “natural’ and limit their treatment options to “a pill for every ill.”
    WHY they do this is a subject for another time. 
    For now, just know that the use of pharmaceutical drugs is VERY profitable which is why you see these pills advertised on TV commercials, magazines… and all across the internet.
    You also see, at the end of these advertisements, a warning stating “side effects may include…”
    Listening to the list of side effects is scary as they are oftentimes WORSE than the actual condition they are supposed to be treating!
    On this episode we talk about the use, and misuse, of pharmaceutical drugs with an emphasis on how harmful many of them can be… even when used properly. 
    We also discuss one particular drug that is marketed specifically as a treatment for the side effects of other drugs.
    (Yes, there is a drug that is promoted as a treatment for the side effects of other drugs!)
    Be sure to give this episode a good listen.
    Then, share it with a friend.
    In addition, check the potential side effects of every drug YOU are taking.
    Thanks!

    22-26 How To Get A Child, Or Any Loved One, To Eat Better

    22-26 How To Get A Child, Or Any Loved One, To Eat Better

    Episode 22:26 How To Get A Child (Or Any Loved One) To Eat Better
    Okay, this is a tough one.

    How do you get a child, or any loved one, to eat better?

    The truth is… we DON’T know!

    But we do have some pretty good suggestions that we believe will help.

    Specifically, on this episode we share two principles and two strategies that we are confident will help you have a greater influence over the eating habits of your children and/or other loved ones.

    Here’s a glimpse into what we talk about:
    - Why Patience is more than a virtue... it's a necessity.

    - Pivotal lessons you can learn from the hit movie Top Gun.

    - A strategy that actually encourages you to be imperfect.
    - Why education must involve information AND entertainment.

    This episode will really get you thinking and is designed so that you can take what you learn and use it to make a positive impact on others.

    As always please be sure to share this episode with a friend.

    Thanks!

Helpful Info, Covid vaccine

I think we all need to better educate ourselves when it comes to the coronavirus and COVID-19. Enjoyed Dr. Burroughs thoughts and comments on the vaccine, the importance of staying healthy and why the vaccine IS NOT the best choice for people that are trying to avoid COVID altogether. Lots of helpful tips on mask-wearing was a bonus 👍🏻
