    Dr. Greg Eckel: Is it possible to regenerate our brain?

    Dr. Greg Eckel: Is it possible to regenerate our brain?

    Can the brain repair itself? Can it regenerate after damage? Will there be a full recovery after a brain injury?  I bring in a friend to talk about the latest advances in neuronal repair. In practice since 2001, Dr. Greg Eckel, co-founder of Nature’s Cure clinic in Portland where he shares what he calls "Sarieah's gifts" with the world, has focused on chronic degenerative and neurodegenerative diseases for many years.

    As a loving husband and clinician, he took a deep dive into medical research looking for cures to his wife's Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease, a rare, chronic neurodegenerative condition with no known cure. While he didn’t find a solution for Sarieah, the information he discovered and now uses in his clinic is showing promise for thousands of people.

    The Effects of Beef on the Environment with Robb Wolf

    The Effects of Beef on the Environment with Robb Wolf

    The health benefits of protein are pretty clear. It helps the body build and repair tissues, allows metabolism to function well, and it also helps in maintaining proper pH and fluid balance. Animals, like cows, are a good source of protein.  Many argue that if we care for our health and our environment, we should get rid of red meat such as beef but science says otherwise.


    Between the latest online fads and the crazy media headlines, it’s easier more than ever to get confused about your health. If you want to make better decisions about your health so you can feel better and live longer, you’ve come to the right place.
     I read a book recently called Sacred Cow written by Robb Wolf and Diana Rogers. They put this book together about how raised meat can actually be good for the planet and can give a positive environmental impact. 
     
    Join me as we dive deep in the effect of beef in the environment with Rob Wolf.

    There are so many questions about Vitamin D today especially in the media regarding its relevance to general health, thyroid health and how it is related to COVID. There are a lot of arguments as to how Vitamin D can be beneficial to humans, and the recent one is its contribution to fight COVID-19. I stumbled across one of Dr. Deva Boone’s articles about people easily getting hypercalcemia or high calcium levels even from mild excesses of Vitamin D. I recommended before to avoid higher levels of Vitamin D as it is less useful and makes you less productive but it turns out it can also be quite dangerous.

She is currently obtaining an executive MBA at the University of South Florida, and is planning to open a parathyroid surgery center in Arizona in 2021.

Shana @total_genius ,

This IS the problem with health!

Thank you to Dr. Christiansen for this podcast! This IS the problem with finding solutions to your health issues. Conventional AND functional medicine are filled with DOGMA. Everyone is trying to get their opinions and interpretations of some research study but it’s an OPINION. It’s not necessarily applicable to someone’s unique situation and lifestyle.

If you are struggling with a health issue please keep this in mind next time you listen to a well known doctor. They mean well but is it truth? Dogma? Perception? Grant sponsored?

Only you can internalize, test, and see for yourself what works for you.

oliviabaker13 ,

Educational, engaging, and actionable! 🙏

If you’re looking to uncover the truth behind medical myths or simply be more knowledgeable about your health - this is a must-listen podcast for you! Dr. Alan is does a fantastic job leading conversations with fellow doctors, researchers, scientists, and other experts. Highly recommend listening and subscribing!

Iodine

I am very confused by your report on iodine and thyroid autoimmune. Your saying to avoid sea salt because of the high iodine and yet your information goes totally against Dr David Brownstein who has helped so many people heal their thyroid by adding iodine. Even many nutritionist and natural healing doctors are using iodine now. My own thyroid seems to be much better since I’ve added Iodine salt and more seafood. In some people with thyroid issues adding iodine can cause problems but testing and how your feeling can determine if iodine is right for you.

Also you did a talk once about colloidal silver and were warning people away from it. It takes an extreme amount and years of high use to turn a person blue. In small amounts it has been shown and proven to be quite safe. While traveling once I had a severe tooth infection to the point where I was having heart palpitations and yet I started on silver and in one day the infection was gone, I kept using it for 4 more days. When I returned home I went to the dentist, no infection and never had Problem with that tooth again. Antibiotics can be very damaging and sometimes can kill people, I personally prefer silver and use antibiotics only if silver does not work.

You apparently are not interested in natural or even functional medicine and very much old school.
