Jim Hrncir, owner of Las Colinas Pharmacy, Compounding & Wellness in Irving, Texas, has received plenty of accolades during his nearly 40-year pharmacy career. Jim was named PCCA Compounding Pharmacist of the Year in 2017. PCCA is the company that makes many of the bases and formulas that compounding pharmacists use. PCCA also trains compounding pharmacists and MDs in yearly functional medicine courses (where Dr. Berkson often lectures).

Jim is the ‘go-to guru’ teaching and giving advice to physicians for many compounded prescriptions.

Recently, Jim was invited to testify in front of the National Academy of Health Sciences, who were given a task by the FDA to review the legality and compoundabilty of bioidentical hormones.

In this show, you will learn what is going on with our rights to keep getting bioidentical hormones.

Jim discusses doses, bases, controversies and more.
In this show you will learn what are bioidentical hormones and how they make can make a huge difference in your life. They are the most powerful tool that we have to slow aging down. They are safe, effective and protect your brain against the big “C” cognitive decline.

In this show you will learn of the studies showing that hormone replacement reduces the risk of cognitive decline by 50 to almost 80%, with the natural molecules (the bioidentical hormones vs. the patented synthetic ones) having even more protection. This was shown by a large insurance study on 400,000 patients tracking their cognition and their hormonal therapies history.

This show is a powerhouse of amazing information.

You can ask your compounding pharmacist to ask Jim about his creative and effective protocols.

You can reach listen to some of his talks at his pharmacy’s web site:

Jack W. Moncrief, MD

Dr. Moncrief has been in practice almost 50 years and was honored as one of the 7 physicians that made kidney medicine what it is today. In this show you will learn why and get in on a great conversation between colleagues and old friends.

Dr. Moncrief and Dr. Berkson worked together in his clinic and dialysis center for almost 10 years. Both, together with Dr. Kenneth Burton, co-invented and worked on a combination drug/herb pharmaceutical and published original research shown below.

Listen to Learn

In this show you will learn how telemedicine got its start with an Austin kidney doctor wanting to do dialysis in faraway cities. By the nephrologist Dr. Jack Moncrief. Dr. Moncrief was the firsts doctor to do organ transplantation, dialysis, and dialysis in an infant, here in Texas.

You hear about kidney health as well as how to treat brown recluse spider bites, so it doesn’t become an acute medical emergency requiring surgeries and wound care. You also hear about nitroglycerin and its application in medicine.

Also amazing is that Dr. Moncrief is still “seeing” patients, though mostly over telemedicine. But not all. So if you have any kidney issues that you need a set of truly experienced eyes on, you may want to reach out to him.

Dr. Moncrief’s accomplishments:

Co-inventor and patent holder primary self/home dialysis procedure (CAPD) continuous parenteral ambulatory dialysis
Nephrology practice 40 years Austin
Biomedical research Moncrief-Popovich Research Institute
Dialysis and Transplant practice
First dialysis in newborn infant

Acute effects of hemodialysis on nitrite and nitrate: potential cardiovascular implications in dialysis patients

Nathan S Bryan 1Ashley C TorregrossaAsad I MianD Lindsey BerksonChristian M WestbyJack W Moncrief

 

Abstract

Cardiovascular mortality in dialysis patients remains a serious problem. It is 10 to 20 times higher than in the general population. No molecular mechanism has been proven to explain this increased mortality, although nitric oxide (NO) has been implicated. The objective of our study was to determine the extent of the removal of the NO congeners nitrite and nitrate from plasma and saliva by hemodialysis, as this might disrupt physiological NO bioactivity and help explain the health disparity in dialysis patients. Blood and saliva were collected at baseline from patients on dialysis and blood was collected as it exited the dialysis unit. Blood and saliva were again collected after 4-5h of dialysis. In the 27 patients on dialysis, baseline plasma nitrite and nitrate by HPLC were 0.21±0.03 and 67.25±14.68 μM, respectively. Blood immediately upon exit from the dialysis unit had 57% less nitrite (0.09±0.03 μM; P=0.0008) and 84% less nitrate (11.04 μM; P=0.0003). After 4-5h of dialysis, new steady-state plasma levels of nitrite and nitrate were significantly lower than baseline, 0.09±0.01 μM (P=0.0002) and 16.72±2.27 μM (P=0.001), respectively. Dialysis also resulted in a significant reduction in salivary nitrite (232.58±75.65 to 25.77±10.88 μM; P=0.01) and nitrate (500.36±154.89 to 95.08±24.64 μM; P=0.01). Chronic and persistent depletion of plasma and salivary nitrite and nitrate probably reduces NO bioavailability and may explain in part the increased cardiovascular mortality in the dialysis patient.

Dr. Barrie Tan

Dr. Barrie Tan is a Ph.D. in chemistry and biochemistry. Dr. Tan is considered one of the world’s foremost experts on Vitamin E.

Vitamin E is not regarded as so sexy or trendy. But it has 8 family members, 4 that are tocopherols and 4 that are tocotrienols.

And boy, has Dr. Tan’s many decades of research unveiled the healing aspect of tocotrienols. And the healing aspect of an Amazon plant, the annatto plant, that contains 100% tocotrienols.

The Beginning

The story all starts with the Amazonian annatto plant (Bixa Orellana) that was discovered by Francesco de Orellana (in the 1550s) and continues in the 1700s when the British called it the ‘lipstick plant’ to today where Estee Lauder uses it in their lip products.

The red oil from the annatto seed is used as a natural coloring in cheeses like cheddar, and is found in other foods like ice cream, meats, crackers, salad dressing, tortilla chips, even mac and cheese but.. it even helps fight cancer.

One of the successful human trials that Dr. Tan has done is on ovarian cancer.

In this show you will learn the dosage and the delivery mode of annatto-E. And why perhaps you might even consider it as an addition to your daily nutraceuticals.

Check it out! I am adding this to my dailies!

This is a dynamic conversation about the reality of the health of the gut and diverse diseases from autism to severe upper respiratory tract infections.

Dr. Sabine Hazan-Steinberg

Gastroenterologist and Hepatologist Dr. Sabine Hazan-Steinberg is past Chief of Medicine at Community Memorial Hospital and has spent the last several decades doing deep dives into fecal transplant research, biomes and the link with overall health as well as specific diseases.

Dr. Hazan has been the principal investigator on over 22 peer review published medical trials. She has published studies on Covid and our biome. Her latest paper coming out is on the specific role of one bacteria in our gut that makes us more vulnerable to Covid infections as well as enhanced severity.

Dr. Hazen is one of the world’s experts on the genetics of the gut biome and now you get to hear it straight from the experts.

In this show you will learn:

  • What the biome has to do with our health and the top issues and foods that make a biome unhealthy.
  • What “biome diversity” means and if you want it, or not.
  • How fecal transplant eliminated disease in some patients and increased it in others.
  • How pathogenic gut infections, even C. diff, is more an issue of loss of “balance” of a healthy biome rather than the virulence of that particular microbe.
  • The role of gut biome health and Covid.
  • Risk vs. benefit of scientific medical research.
  • Early intervention Covid protocols, and more.

You will also learn some of the best and easiest “probiotic foods” to consume such as umeboshi plum paste, and where to get it.

The world is in a mess. Of course, life on this planet earth has mostly been a chaotic entanglement of grace, grit and trauma for eons.

Do you ever wonder:

  • How to face the chaos without killing yourself before your time?
  • How to have an enjoyable and successful life no matter what?
  • How do others who have faced unbelievable cruelty and violence, come out better than ever and with many rupees in the bank?

This show is an amazing story of how to succeed after life-changing setbacks.

Joshua Greene

Dr. Berkson interviews long time meditator, Joshua Greene. You hear the “calm” and “stability” in Joshua’s voice. Joshua is a biographer. Stories of people’s lives hold so much for our own.

In his latest book, UNSTOPPABLE: Siggi B. Wilzig’s Astonishing Journey from Auschwitz Survivor and Penniless Immigrant to Wall Street Legend  Joshua clearly describes how someone under incredible duress, can put it behind them while exploding successfully forward.

During this captivating interview, Joshua and Dr. B discover they have some of the same dear friends and have walked in each other’s moccasins. And, neither of them knew this before this chat!

This conversation will offer you lessons for morphing angst into calm and success.

You will feel so much better for having heard this conversation!

Dr. Hooman Noorchashm

Physician-scientist Dr. Hooman Noorchashm is an advocate for patient safety, ethics and women’s health. He specializes in cardiothoracic surgery and has taught and practiced medicine for nearly two decades. When his wife, also a doctor, Dr. Amy Reed, tragically (and needlessly) passed away from complications of an FDA approved gynecologist procedure that is still in essence performed today, Dr. Noorchashm began his new incarnation of patient advocacy of do no harm.

Dr. Noorchashm now brings this perspective to why some people may have adverse effects from the vaccine. And how this might translate into who should or should not get the vaccine. As well as how we might test this ourselves.

Faculty appointments for Dr. Noorchashm's include positions at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine, Harvard Medical School, Thomas Jefferson University Hospital and the Philadelphia VA Hospital.

In addition to peer-reviewed publications, he has authored medical book chapters and has lectured at several annual medical meetings and conferences.

In 2017, Dr. Noorchashm founded the American Patient Defense Union, Inc. which he describes as “a union of, by and for patients — capable of providing adequately powered liability signals to the corporate healthcare establishment so that it can improve and evolve.”

In this show you will learn:

  • Dr. Noorchashm’s theory of why vaccine complications might be happening.
  • How you can test yourself.
  • Dr. Noorchashm’s points and discussion of how everyone should be screened before getting the vaccine.
  • About early intervention.
  • and Why biopsying fibroids before removal makes sense.

Dr. Peter A. McCullough

Dr. Peter McCullough is a practicing internist and cardiologist and Professor of Medicine at Texas A & M College of Medicine. Dr. McCullough has broadly published on a range of topics in medicine with > 1000 publications and > 600 citations in the National Library of Medicine.

He testified in front of the Texas State Senate in March of 2021 that our battle against the pandemic is missing “early intervention”. On November 19, 2020, Dr. McCullough also testified in the US Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs concerning early ambulatory treatment of high-risk patients with COVID-19.

Dr. Peter McCullough has become an expert on Covid-19. He believes that Covid is treatable with a combination of medications, especially if those medications are started early while the disease is still mild. He shares what can we do at home (along with a smart doctor’s help) to avoid ending up in the ER or ICU. In our conversation you will hear the protocol details that diverse doctors around the world are successfully using.

Dr. McCullough feels that there have been “world-wide” blunders in how Covid has been addressed by governments around the globe.

In this show you will learn:

  • Who are the best candidates for the vaccine?
  • Who may not be safe candidates for the vaccine?
  • What combination of medications help Covid at what stages of the illness and info your doctors should know about.
  • About retracted papers on hydroxychloroquine and why the previously prestigious Lancet has lost some of its prestige.
  • About randomized trials on Ivermectin but issues with the ones the WHO held as highest.
  • What nutrients are helpful, though not curative, a list you need to know!
  • The controversy of “durable antibodies”.
  • Who is really guilty of “flawed thinking” and who is not?

Screen time and prolonged exposure to unhealthy blue light has skyrocketed over the past year as we’ve all been stuck inside during the pandemic. We’ve developed new habits that aren’t likely to change as we get back to our older lives.

So, how can we protect our eyes against blue light exposure and the growing risk of macular degeneration?

In this show you learn the top 4 answers:

  1. Proper nutrition
  2. Supplementation
  3. Blue blocking glasses, and
  4. Screen filters

You will learn:

  • Which spectrum of light is most damaging to your eyes?
  • How to pick the best protective blue light glasses from the worst.
  • How to know if the blue-blocking glasses are working.
  • About a medical food that has the highest level of protective eye pigments and nutrients of anything on the market (link to Lumega-Z is below).
  • Which nutraceutical is the only one to have all three pigments. Link is below. 

Too many ophthalmologists and optometrists leave “nutrition” and “life-style” out of their conversations with patients.

Too much health care is reactive. Most people don’t think of their eyes till they face an emergency.

Dr. Rani wants you and your loved ones to start protecting their eye future, now.

Guest Links

Dr. Rani offers a free webinar and an online training course that might be of interest to you.

  • The Macular Degeneration Masterclass is a FREE one-hour webinar offered every Wednesday at 5:00pm ET/2:00pm PT and gives listeners 3 critical things to know to prevent vision loss.
  • Eat Right For Your Sight...And Beyond will teach your listeners the science-backed, eye-healthy nutritional and lifestyle strategies to protect and preserve eyesight through 4 comprehensive weekly modules.

In this show you hear two old friends and colleagues talk about the early beginnings of functional medicine. And the nutraceutical industry.

In this show you will learn:

  • How and why, Jonathan Rothchild decided to open up one of the first nutraceutical companies. And why cater to ultra-sensitive person and unique needs.
  • Fat soluble thiamin, why it is so helpful with cognitive issues.
  • Time-release niacin and its role in keeping lipids safe.

You will want to buy only organic citrus at the moment. Why?

Two hormone-disrupting fungicides “imazalil” and “thiabendazole were detected on nearly 90 percent of non-organic citrus fruit samples in tests commissioned by the Environmental Working Group (EWG).  Both chemicals are linked to higher incidences of childhood cancers.

The highest levels of imazalil and thiabendazole were found on mandarins, including clementine’s, followed by oranges and then grapefruit.

You will want to mainly eat organic kale. Why? Inorganic kale has now been put third on the list of the EWG’s dirty dozen worst polluting foods.

Dr. Austin Perlmutter is an internist and co-author of the NY Times Bestselling book: Brain Wash:Detox Your Mind for Clearer Thinking, Deeper Relationships, and Lasting Happiness.

Dr. Perlmutter is a unique doctor that teaches tools to become more mindful in today’s mind-boggling times.

In this show you will hear a fascinating conversation addressing:

  • Why so many people are so quick to take offense?
  • How our “moment to moment” choices influence our reactions to our “is-ness”.
  • What are we getting wrong when it comes to making better choices. 
  • How can we get ahead of bad decisions?
  • What is the role of diet in our thinking? And reacting?
  • How the gut microbiome influences how we see our world?
  • The relationship between mood disorders and our choices. 

Dr. Perlmutter is a word-smith. This show is an enlightening, almost poetic – yet science-based — conversation about the ‘cultural angst’ unfolding today.

You will learn exact steps for rising above the anger and despair. You will learn specific tools to help you find healthier emotional footings. All based on peer-review literature. Put together in a user-friendly manual manner.

Take a look at Dr. Perlmutter's book, Brain Wash, here.   

Mar 17, 2021

In this show you will learn:

  • Variants of highest concern are infectious, virulent, and evade human immune surveillance.
  • The more people that get Covid, the more we are exposed to new variants.
  • The UK variant, called the “Kent Variant” is more infectious and more virulent and may be a hide-and-seek new “strain” that can make more numbers of people ill, with increasing fatality rates, too.
  • Not everyone has access to” functional interventions”, or doctors to order them (like Ivermectin, nutrients and even nebulized glutathione) so… we need a variety of protective actions.
  • Many states are relaxing mitigation strategies, which is not the best approach right now because "we may be facing our biggest challenge yet" with the UK variant. And… perhaps… more scariant, variants to come.

Vaccines are not the only answer. But they not only boost antibody production, they also educate your B and T cells to be able to address new mutations.

If the antibody production didn’t work, the memory in your immune system is great “back-up”.

Scientifically this means: Vaccines produce two measurable responses (aside from clinical outcome) -- neutralizing antibody titers plus t-cell reactivity.

What is clear is that the longer millions of people are infected, the more mutations there will be. We refer to some of these mutations as scariant, as they are becoming more virulent on a variety of levels and already we are closing in on 550,000 Americans having died from Covid. At the same time learning that certain states have “under-count” these cases.

While we wait for new vaccine supplies, experts suggest we should consider alternative vaccination plans: Get more people vaccinated, including delaying the second dose to 6-8 weeks after the first; giving a single dose to people with prior COVID-19 infection; and giving a half-dose of the Moderna vaccine.

We need to get up on what else is helpful that we can do in our own homes.

Science is building a great case that Vitamin D blood levels effect your COVID outcomes. Vitamin D levels over 30 ng/mL are linked to less severe cases of COVID while blood levels under 12 ng/mL are linked to higher risk of ending up in the ICU and intubated.

Take Vitamin D. Know your level. Work with your savvy practitioner on this if you need to.

Avoid high-fructose corn syrup. It inactivates vitamin D even if you supplement or hang out in the sun.

Eat well. Rest well. Take protective nutrients that we have discussed in other shows (such as zinc, melatonin, Vitamin A, N-acetylcysteine, resveratrol) and more.

Vaccines are only part of the way to stop this pandemic, which is presently 5 times more fatal than the flu. But this is the statistical virulence and fatality rate of the original mutations, not the newer more scariant ones.

Mar 8, 2021

In this show you will learn:

  • How much alcohol consumption is safe (especially after age 40).
  • Asthmatics get a leg up with COVID.
  • Urinary Tract Infections to-do’s and not to-do’s.
  • Issues with plastic toys and cancer in your kids.

We also discuss the frustrations and fears that the pandemic has uncovered. We share
Jeff Foster’s “The Exquisite Risk of Being Human”.

You will also learn what brain derived neurotrophic factors are, how they relate to anti-depressants, and how hormones like estrogen and progesterone play a role in “neurotrophins”.

Dr. Galland is a pioneer in studying the impact of intestinal microbes (the gut microbiome) and overall health, especially with excessive gut wall permeability (“leaky gut”).

A graduate of Harvard University and New York University School of Medicine, Dr. Galland is board-certified in internal medicine listed in the Leading Physicians of the World and America’s Top Doctors.

In this show, Dr Galland explains what types of dysbiosis may lead to increased vulnerabilities of getting COVID-19. And, conversely, how Covid might adversely affect the gut microbiome.

Dr. Galland explains and names, which nutraceuticals and probiotics may protect against getting COVID and may reduce severity of cases once you contract it..

Dr. Galland discusses specific “nasal sprays” that are being investigated and can be prescribed and compounded by compounding pharmacists. These prevent infection and may be used by people who need to continue to work jobs of high exposure such as teachers, students and those like Dr. Berkson that have to continue to travel. They are safe even for children.

Dr. Galland gives the exact formula for a mouth wash you can make at home to help if you get infected.

In this show you hear an in-depth discussion on how Covid gets into the body, what molecules the protein uses to adhere to ACE receptors, and how “heparin” may be a key in protection from kids to adults.

Heparin is inexpensive, safe and a “heparin nasal spray” is coming commercially within a year, being researched by the University of Massachusetts. In this show you are guided as to where you can get the specific formula (for free) to your physician to get a script if they agree to it.

You also hear an in-depth, scientific discussion on vaccines.

Learn which companies are making the vaccines available for no profit to themselves, what are the differences between the companies, and who is acting in greedy ways and how.

This is a “must-hear” and “must-not miss” show.

Please, pass this show on to help others and our planet as well.

Sanity is a precious thing. There are so many divergent yet “loud” commentaries and opinions on vaccines, this divergence is threatening much of our sanity as well as humanity. (Boy…  that rhymed)!

Dale Harrison is a senior biotech executive with more than 20 years of experience in research physics and the biotech industry. Mr. Harrison is currently working with companies developing new clinical diagnostic platforms such as developing a CRISPR-based Covid over-the-counter test.

Thus, Mr. Harrison has been writing, researching, and assessing what is going on with Covid, and Covid vaccines.

In this show you will learn:

What is an mRNA vaccine?

The difference between a “sterilizing vaccine” (measles vaccine) vs. a “non-sterilizing vaccine” (COVID vaccines).

How vaccines offer “disease immunity” and what this means for your risk of dying from Covid.

The statistical risk of dying from Covid (in 2021) in those 15 -year old's and older.

The risks in people with serious autoimmune diseases of getting COVID vs. getting the vaccine.

Why there is so much inaccurate vaccine information out in “cyber space” even by top physicians and Nobel Laureate winners.

Dale’s take on what happened to the elderly that died in Norway post-vaccine.

Why you need to wait 90 days after having COVID before you can safely get the vaccine.

Which vaccine does he think we should avoid?

Once you get the vaccine… then what?

 

Will we still need “mitigating behaviors” after getting the vaccine?

How will these behaviors be different from mitigating behaviors pre-vaccine?

Dale and Dr. B agree to disagree on Lysosomotropic agents.

How to safely go back to dense activity sports, like the gym or dancing, once you have been vaccinated. Or not.

Molecular mimicry beyond the respiratory tract, a nuance of Covid.

If we drop all mitigation efforts, even with full vaccine compliance, Dale discusses how the virus will go fully endemic and almost everyone will catch Covid-19 once or twice a year. There will possibly be many more deaths, unless we as a country are guided in nutrients, easy to use at home anti-virals, and more education on keeping our personal immune systems healthy.

In this episode you will learn:

  • Levels of bias/censorship in today’s medicine especially surrounding COVID and hormones
  • Testimony of Pierre Kory, MD to Homeland Security Committee Meeting: Focus on Early Treatment of COVID-19 December 8, 2020 - transcript is at https://www.hsgac.senate.gov/imo/media/doc/Testimony-Kory-2020-12-08.pdf
  • You can go to https://covid19criticalcare.com/math-hospital-treatment/ to learn about protocols for prophylaxis (protection) and treatment - not standard of care at this time
  • The meta-analysis of 28 studies on the “drug that cannot be named” can be viewed at ivmmeta.com
  • Kahlil Gibran wrote Our Children, this is discussed per parent/child interactions of world-life viewpoints vs. censorship and cultural viewpoints
  • Estrogen and Progesterone’s role in regulation of fear
  • Progesterone as an anti-anxiety hormone
  • Estrogen’s role in ease of achieving healthy “portion sizes”
  • The role of sex hormones in protection against the 2nd most commonly diagnosed cancer worldwide in women: colorectal cancer (CRC).
  • Risk of CRC is increased 30% for women undergoing hysterectomy with both ovaries removed; increased risk of 24% if no ovaries are removed (as often hormones do not work optimally after hysterectomy even if ovaries are left in)
  • The risk of CRC after oophorectomy gradually increases with age at surgery. Risk is increased( 66% ) within first 4 years after surgery. This suggests that women with susceptibility genes for ovarian cancer or metrocarcinoma are candidates for oophorectomy or hysterectomy, but women “not” at high risk for these cancers, should be careful about oophorectomies or hysterectomies, and especially life style choices within the first 5 years after surgery should they get it.
  • Health benefits of the “forgotten estrogen” – estriol, especially for autoimmune illnesses such as Multiple Sclerosis, Inflammatory Bowel Disease, etc.
  • The unappreciated role of “natural estriol” in protecting the “central nervous system” by binding to estrogen receptors in the immune system, brain, and the spinal cord.
  • A 2017 review found that estriol protects against “many inflammatory autoimmune” disease markers.

Today’s world is stressful for everyone that owns a brain. This show describes a FREE, EASY and FAST way to retrain your brain to de-stress. This method is called “Binaural Beat”. (Sometimes referred to as Binaural Beat Therapy.)

With a few 20-minute sessions, you can get your brain to relax - as if you were a seasoned meditator.  You can use your smart headphones or simply buy some inexpensive headphones, to be used along with a free app on your phone.

In this show you will learn:

  • What are “Binaural Beats”
  • What Binaural Beats do inside your brain
  • How Binaural Beats can calm your brain or intensify your orgasms (referred to in this way as “mindgasms”)
  • The safety of Binaural Beats and who should NOT use it.
  • How your brain “beats” and “sounds” when you are in deep sleep, in state of calm, in a state of agitation and in a tantric state.
  • How the concept of Binaural Beats has been used in war and in peace marches.
  • Mike and Dr. Lindsey waxing on about the “dog beach” they visited yesterday and what it means to be in “sync” with someone.
  • What is brain “entrainment” and how it affects you, your relationships and your brain. And, in addition,
  • Why and how melatonin protects you against “getting” Covid and “reduces complications from COVID” even in the ICU.

Any headphone works. The ones that have cushioning on the sides minimize bone conduction to brain sound, so it gives the most optimal effect. But you don’t have to use cushioned headphones, this is just an explanation of why they are the top of the line for these purposes.
