Dr. Shallenberger is known as the "Godfather" of Ozone. Dr. Shallenberger's certification Course on Ozone Therapy is the oldest and most comprehensive Ozone Therapy course in the Western world. Shallenberger has been giving this course every year since 1991 and has trained thousands of practitioners from all over the world.

 

In this show you will learn:

  • What is ozone?
  • What are the different ways it is safely delivered into the body?
  • How ozone effects or reboots mitochondria.
  • The different health issues that are treated with ozone.
  • The use of ozone for pain.
  • Dr. Berkson’s healing eye journey using ozone. This is based on Dr. Menendez’s work. In several studies, Dr. Menendez and her colleagues were able to show a consistent improvement in patients with macular degeneration and visual field loss, using ozone therapy alone. Ozone therapy – all by itself (no drugs, supplements, or foods) – consistently enhanced both visual acuity and visual field.

In this show Dr. Berkson reviews the science and safety of testosterone therapy in some breast cancer survivors. Dr. Berkson walks you through the studies. You hear how and why testosterone (T) might be a safe answer for some breast cancer patients to improve quality of life and reduce rate of recurrence. 

In this show you’ll learn:

  • How maleness protects femaleness (how T protects breast tissue).
  • The differences between estrogen receptor alpha and beta.
  • All about 3β-Adiol. In both genders.
  • How T protects prostate tissue.
  • The shadow side and controversy of T.
  • Aromatase enzymes.
  • The Estrogen Quotient.
  • The Testosterone Metabolic Profile.
  • The ratios of metabolites of female hormones (estrogens) to male hormones (androgens) and how to test for these, and where to get the kits.
  • Finally, you learn specific natural answers to improve these ratios and decrease risk of hormonally driven cancers.

People want to be happy. Why? Science is showing that happy people live longer and have better health.  But getting your “happy on” leans on your physical, emotional and cognitive habits. 

In this show Dr. Berkson discusses:

  • How to cultivate happy.
  • Why peace is more sustainable and desirable than happy.

Dr. Berkson’s explores the science showing that happiness and optimism effect health issues like breast cancer and high blood pressure.

Did you know there is World Happiness Report 2017, sponsored by the NIH? It names Norway the world’s happiest country while the US is way down the list.

We discuss why.

In this show you’ll learn what do to become more peaceful and congruent inside your body suit.  

Positive emotions have such a powerful effect on your cells, there is a branch of psychology now called “Positive Psychology”. 

But having bad things happen to good people is part of life.

Dr. Berkson discusses how to avoid the “new age guilt” of “the law of attraction” on rhoids.

We explore the true Vitamin D = discipline.

You’ll learn why getting you “why” on, helps get your vitamin D on.

You’ll learn the effectiveness of Vitamin L = luxury, and getting your “luxury” on.

You’ll meet: “She Who Swims With The Fireman” and the power of compassion on the human spirit.

Dr. Berkson share’s personal 5 steps she’s taking to get her “happy” on this New Year, 2019.

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 pellets were placed next to the tumor during chemo.

Much of this research comes from prestigious multi-centers across the globe from Greece to the NIH.

The science is suggesting that breast cancer patients on aromatase inhibitors and testosterone, have less recurrence of cancer. And the aromatase therapy works better in tandem than by itself. This means testosterone helps control growth in the breast (the hallmark of cancer is growth out of control). Testosterone along with aromatase inhibitors also appears to make breast cancer cells “die” more effectively (apoptosis).

Hormones signal receptors. The human breast has many testosterone “receptors” to receive testosterone signals. Testosterone delivers “anti-cancer” protective signals to the breast.

When testosterone sex steroid signals are delivered into a receptor, when the signals get deep into the genes of these receptors, breast cells are informed to “stop growing out of control”. Breast cancer cells are encouraged to “die” especially when the patient is also on an aromatase inhibitor (a drug blocking testosterone’s transformation into estrogen).

The ratio of “free” estrogens to “free” testosterone has much to do with breast safety.

Stay tuned for the next show on the underlying mechanisms describing exactly how testosterone acts as an anti-cancer hormone at the breast. You will also learn that testosterone protects against prostate cancer too, not just breast cancer. You will learn more of how to test your estrogen to testosterone ratios, and even learn about foods, nutrients and lifestyle habits that help maintain healthy T to E ratios (testosterone to estrogen).
