Dr. Berkson interviews Dr. Veronique Desaulniers who specializes in guiding women through breast cancer. Up to 30% of cancers are not found by mammogram, but by self-palpation (do it yourself breast exams).
Dr. V—as she is respectfully known as—has a new product (Your Breast Friend) to help train women how to do effective and safe “self-breast exams”.
In this show you learn:
Links for Dr. V, my breast friend, Wheatgrass and Biomat.
Health food tends to run in trends. At the moment coconut is king. But just as we live in a material world with two sides to everything, it appears there may be a “shadow side” to coconut oil—for some patients.
You will learn Dr. Berkson’s conclusions from first hearing this at an A4M Anti-aging Gastroenterology module she was both a professor and student at, along with “sleuthing’ the science.
In this show you will learn:

This show is in honor of two amazing scientists that helped the world recognize the human threat of endocrine disrupting environmental chemicals.
Dr. Elizabeth (Buzzy) A. Guillet PhD and Dr. Louis Joseph Guillet PhD—lovers, married for decades, visionaries, scientists—and amazing! Both have been Dr. Berkson’s heroes and colleagues for many years.
Dr. “Buzzy” Guillett was the anthropologist who first took a look at what endocrine disruptors (environmental pollutants that mimic hormones) were doing to our children’s brains and our daughters breasts. Dr. Guillet and her husband, Dr. Lou Guillett, were instrumental in putting endocrine disruption on the scientific world’s radar.
They were the definition of the original power couple. This show honors both and is an amazing interview with Dr. Buzzy Guillet about their work.
Dr. Berkson worked with them at the Center For Bioenvironmental Research at Tulane and interviewed them for Hormone Deception (available on Amazon second edition) over 25 years ago.
Dr. Lou sadly passed a few years ago from lymphoma. Many think this was due to all his years of work in the dirty waters of Lake Apopka in Florida where he did original alligator research. Dr. Louis Guillett was an active man, not averse to actual wrestling with reptiles to take blood samples or measure penile lengths!
Dr. Lou demonstrated that the alligators were getting feminized due to endocrine disruptors in the water. Now the lake has been cleaned and the male alligators are manly again, much due to Dr. Lou’s efforts.
Dr. Louis Joseph Guillette junior was professor at the Medical University of South Carolina’s obstetrics and gynecology department in Charleston. He worked alongside Ana Soto, Frederick vom Saal and Theo Colborn, when endocrine disruption was a radical and unproven hypothesis.
One of his most notable quotes was when Dr. Lou told a US House of Representatives Subcommittee on Health and the Environment in 1993 about sperm counts: “Every man sitting in this room today is half the man his grandfather was. And the question is: are our children going to be just half the men we are?” This quote lives on and Dr. Buzzy is part of carrying on the investigation and pursuit of awareness and answers.
Dr. Buzzy was a professor at the University of Florida. Dr. Buzzy spent years in Mexico studying the effects of pesticides on children’s thinking, brain development, hand-eye coordination, IQ and breast development.
I always thought Dr. Lou looked like a “he-man” that just stepped out of an Irish spring commercial. And I always looked toward their relationship and amazing contributions with a huge heart of admiration.
In this show you will learn:
This is a must not miss show as endocrine disruptors have been called “the third major threat to humanity’ after nuclear war and global warming! And Dr. Buzzy Guillet helped scientists and humanity understand all this.
David Brownstein, M.D. is a Board-Certified family physician and one of the foremost practitioners and speakers of holistic medicine.
Dr. Brownstein has practiced holistic medicine for 25 years, has 16 books out, many of them best-sellers.
In this dynamic and personal dialogue between two colleagues and dear friends, you will learn:
Dr. Berkson speaks on the “re-analysis” of the Women’s Health Initiative—a 19-year follow-up— presented at the San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium on December 13, 2019.
(* See abstract below for details).
In this show, estrogen gets a “reframe”.
How estrogen protects against breast cancer incidence
How estrogen protects against all-cause mortality (death from all causes).
How estrogen protects many tissues, especially our energy organelles: mitochondria.
You learn how best to take estrogen therapy, optimal timing of initiation, benefits, and theories as to why estrogen is breast cancer protective more than breast cancer dangerous.
Did you know estrogen has been historically used to treat breast cancer!
Dr. Rowan T. Chlebowski is the principal investigator in this new re-analysis. Asked if this new data should influence current guidelines on menopausal hormone therapy? Dr. Chlebowski says, "Yes, I would hope so!”
Dr. Berkson will be writing a blog on “Estrogen Vindicated” that you can soon find at drlindseyberkson.com in the blog section.
Don’t miss out on the most potent anti-aging tools we have: hormones. And one of the most breast, brain and life protective… is estrogen. God bless her!
Happy New Year’s 2020!!!
