In this show you will learn how to stop your failing struggle with weight.  

Michelle Melendez's new book, End Dieting Hell: How to find peace with your body and lose weight is not another diet book!

With over ten-years of experience as a weight loss specialist, Michelle shares insights most trainers and even bariatric doctors (weight loss docs) don't know. 

Michelle put together a fascinating theory and been working with hundreds of women in her famous and effective Women Being Fit programs based on her new theories.

Michelle’s brand-new lose weight and keep it off program details:

  • Your cells literally get “addicted” to your weight loss struggle.
  • Your cells (fat and nervous cells) get “off” on the “sensation” of struggle: keeping you caught repeating the struggle over and over again.
  • Your subconscious is running your struggle and sabotages your efforts.
  • Michelle’s program (which she runs in the gorgeous state of Hawaii rather than the state of denial, ha!) teaches you how to retrain your fat cells and neurology to work “with” you rather than “against” you.
  • A big part of keeping weight off, is finding inner emotional “peace”.
  • In Michelle’s program and new book, you learn EXACT steps to achieve inner peace and FINALLY get your body to stop its fat struggle addiction.

THIS IS VERY TIME ORIENTED: PLEASE TAKE ACTION ALONG WITH US! 

Hormones Are Under Attack, Dr. Berkson’s Interview with Dr. Daved Rosensweet. 

Daved Rosensweet MD has been specializing in bioidentical hormone therapies for decades. Dr. Rosensweet has developed his own training program (www.menopausemethod.com), patented hormone bases, and now this.

 

Dr. Rosensweet just came back from Washington D.C, where he testified in front of the National  Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine (NASEM) to try to protect our rights and abilities to have access to safe and individualized hormones. Meaning: compounded bioidentical hormone replacement therapies (BHRT). The battle is on for who gets the money from women getting hormones. Pharmaceutical manufacturers continually try to be the main influencer of the FDA; trying to keep women on patentable (non- individualized) hormones, versus compounded bioidentical hormones by compounding pharmacies in response to doctor’s individualize scripts.

Our monumental efforts are called for right now!

NASEM, has been tasked and funded by the FDA to organize a Committee on the Clinical Utility of Treating Patients with Compounded “Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy.” To date there have been three meetings of testimonies of "stakeholders and experts" to the Committee. Recently surveys have been sent out to the public and practitioners for their opinions (see link to survey below).

 

Between the three meetings the majority of time was given to testimonies “negative” to bioidentical hormones. In contrast, about 1 hour and 35 minutes were on the “pro” side, supporting bioidentical hormones. 

 

As far as can be discerned from the biographies of the 12 Committee members of MDs and PhDs, none have treated women or men with Bioidentical Hormones.

One Committee member after the meeting had drawn to a close, approached one of the compounding pharmacist experts and said "there is no way we will tell the FDA to back what you do, however, I am interested in you treating me for menopause as this makes sense to me."

 

You can hear Dr. Rosensweet’s testimony (only allowed 5 minutes) and Q & A at these links:

HERE’S WHAT YOU CAN DO:

You can’t open it and then go back. It’s 10 short questions that will take one to two minutes. NOTE: you may have to try a couple of times, this link seems to be glitchy (copy/paste seems to work better which is why we didn't make the link clickable here)

Dr. Berkson discusses coming back from lecturing in Canada, daikon radish escapades with customs, security, dating and oxytocin.

In this show you learn about oxytocin’s global clinical applications, oxytocin receptor locations, delivery mode options, critical co-factors, and other specific nuances that play direct but often unappreciated role in how oxytocin helps your body function optimally.

A big focus is on liquid oxytocin mixed with a muco-adherent liquid for application in esophageal diseases from severe reflux to the pre-cancerous condition, Barrett’s esophagus.

Dr. Berkson answers a fan’s question as to why you might be taking oxytocin replacement and not getting the benefits you desire, and what to do about it. You also will hear about a possible new pilot trial on oxytocin’s application for esophageal disease.

Join Dr. Berkson for  this fun, useful and heart-felt show!

In this show you will learn about metabolic medicine, functional compounding pharmaceutical medicine, and an upcoming retreat on oxytocin with Dr. Berkson, Dr. Clack and Dr. Barker in Costa Rica in September 2019.

As humans, we are called to find our own space, and then fill it up.

In this retreat these conversations gets you started.

The Costa Rica conference is called espaciosinnombre.com

Without a name. 

Meaning, find your own name, find your own purpose, find your own place and may all that be in-syn-ness with life and community.

For a week we will connect with each other on mind, body, spirit and science levels, and boost each other’s oxytocin. 

Oxytocin is the hormone of connection. We will be connecting with each other as well as with the beauty and nature of Costa Rica.

Want to come hang in an intimate beach front time with experts on everything oxytocin by optimizing your oxytocin?

A once in a life time experience to get real, exhale, learn and enjoy!

Knowledge is power. Join Dr. Berkson's interview with KATHERINE EBAN, an investigative journalist, Fortune magazine contributor, Andrew Carnegie fellow, and New York Time’s best-selling author of Bottle of Lies: The Inside Story of the Generic Drug Boom and expand your knowledge base.

Ms. Eban is known and respected for lecturing on pharmaceutical counterfeiting and pharmaceutical integrity, or lack of it. And… now… generic medications.

In this illuminating and must-hear show you will learn:

  • What are generic drugs and what are the concerns with them.
  • Where you can go to figure out the deep dive on your own generic meds.
  • How is the FDA letting us down and what are the conflicts of interest?
  • 80% of our generics are made overseas, mostly in India and China, who often have very serious issues with their chemical plants, contaminants and other complications.
  • The U.S. makes almost none of its own antibiotics anymore. 
  • Examples of fraud committed by generic-drug makers at manufacturing plants in India and China include: forging of documents and data to prove that generic drugs are equivalent to brand-name drugs, when they’re not; altering of test parameters so that formulations with higher impurities can be approved; superimposing brand-name test results onto generic results in applications to regulators.
  • Overseas drug companies take extreme measures to evade FDA scrutiny.  
  • At one major U.S. hospital center, transplant surgeons found that their patients suffered organ rejection after taking an immunosuppressant medication made by an Indian generic drug company. 
  • Poor-quality generic drugs are feeding the epidemic of drug resistance around the world.
