We are at war with the virus that causes the new viral illness, COVID-19.
In this show you hear Dr. Berkson’s theory on the “Gaia Principal” and taking a look at “root cause” of escalating pandemics.
You will hear exact steps to “flatten the curve” (todays COVID-19 mantra) with specific ways to maintain your immunity.
You learn what sugar does to your immune system and for how long.
We share specific dosages of anti-viral nutrients.
You will hear the names of two new promising drugs that may help halt this coronavirus, and how the underlying mechanism of how they work overlaps with melatonin.
How melatonin may be a critical player to help you stay well.. and why. (I wrote an entire chapter on melatonin in my book, Safe Hormones, Smart Women.)
How the virus binds to ACE2 and the controversy of ACE2 receptors and hypertensive medications.
Stay calm. The stress hormone cortisol is immunosuppressive.
We are being asked by the “isness” of this viral reality to live “community” consciousness more than “personal”.
We are all in this together.
Let’s get the message right.
Let’s support the leaders that tell the truth, not manage the truth.
Twenty-percent of U.S. COVID-19 deaths so far have been aged 20 to 64. Kids can get it. They may not die but may be at risk of permanent tissue damage. You can have the virus without symptoms or only digestive ones.
Learn how viruses have consciousness and evolve just like we do. Thus, symptoms and treatments may do the same.
You will learn the “two aspects” of this virus that make it different than what humanity’s immune systems have seen before.
This dangerous virus is here for a while, but our fates are not locked in.
In this show you learn how to take more mastery of your fate.

Dr. Berkson interviews Lisa Tamati about the incredible story told in her new book, “Relentless,” of never giving up and healing from brain injury. Lisa’s mom had a stroke and aneurysm both within 3 days and was given a few weeks to live. But Lisa would not take “no” for an answer.
In ingenious manners, Lisa had her mother go on hyperbaric oxygen treatments, nutrients and medications. All these boost brain function to return after devastating injury.
Lisa kindly put together a list for our show notes (thanks Lisa!) with all kinds of action-steps, nutrients and even off-label use of meds to help brain trauma patients:
Lisa feels that, “Everyone who has had a brain injury would benefit from:”

Be master of your mind rather than having your mind be master of you! As our culture and world gets more stimuli, more screen time, more job demands, our mindfulness and peace can suffer.
In this show you learn:
Dr. Race started the Mindful Life Schools program which has helped over 50,000 children and many teachers learn mindfulness and create more happiness.
Kristen Race, Ph.D. is a parent of two young children, as well as an expert in child, family and school psychology. Dr. Race is the author of Mindful Parenting and founder of Mindful Life™.
Dr. Race has been featured in The New York Times, NPR, The Washington Post, Chicago Tribune, USA TODAY, CNN, and Real Simple Magazine. She is a regular blogger for The Huffington Post and Psychology Today and a TEDx speaker.
The effect of mindfulness is extremely pronounced. Yale scientists demonstrated (see citation below) that even when participants were subjected to high heat on their forearm, their brain responded as if it was experiencing normal temperature if they were practicing simple mindfulness techniques.
It is connecting to the present moment peacefully, gratefully and with NON-JUDGMENT.
In this show you learn the easy and effective technique of PBR:
Our judgments can rule us... making us vulnerable to anxiety, negativity and unhappiness.
The good news is... we can learn to rule our judgments.
With tools of mindfulness. This leads to awareness and to control over our mind and health.
Awareness of what rules us is a huge part of feeling healthier and happier. It rules how you act and react. And what you attract.
It makes you comfy inside your body, brain and relationships.
Understand and practice awareness.
This show guides you how!
Astrology is a system that looks at cycles of life using the language of planets. It’s about planetary energies that influence our personal personalities, temperament, challenges and strengths.
The practice of astrology has been around in various forms for thousands of years. The New Age movement of the 1960s and ’70s launched the New Age as the “Age of Aquarius”—the 2,000-year period after the Earth is said to move into the Aquarius sign.
People especially turn to spirituality and astrology during stress. Millennials and Gen Xers have been significantly more stressed than previous generations since 2012 and are embracing astrology with a huge hug.
Dr. Berkson met Alan Oken at a Holy Man Jam, where spiritual leaders converged to discuss the consciousness of planet earth.
Alan Oken was the Director of The Wisdom School (Santa Fe, NM), is co-founder of the Australian Institute for the Development of Consciousness and was Director of Esoteric Studies in Lisbon.
Alan is the author of a dozen titles, including Soul-Centered Astrology, Rulers of the Horoscope, and Alan Oken’s Complete Astrology.
In this personal yet general dialogue, you will learn:

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.

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!!!
