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:

  • Forecasting for 2020
  • Millennials
  • The New Spirituality
  • Which generation that will come forward to promote international peace.

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:

  • Current days statistics for breast cancer.
    • For women with breast cancer, 89.7 percent survive for five years after diagnosis. This survival rate includes all women with breast cancer regardless of the stage or subtype
    • The average 10-year survival rate is 83%.
    • If the cancer is located only in the breast, the 5-year survival rate of women with breast cancer is 99%.
    • Sixty-two percent (62%) of people with breast cancer are diagnosed with this stage.
  • V’s personal journey with breast cancer twice.
  • The Breast Cancer Conqueror movement
  • The 7 Essentials System™ for healing and preventing Breast Cancer?
  • How to do coffee enemas effectively.
  • How to use and order frozen wheatgrass juice to put into the coffee enemas.
  • Some quality immune boosting products.
  • Why supplementing with both vitamin D and vitamin K is best.
  • Your “Breast Friend Technology” so women can learn how to give themselves effective breast exams, which are the way both Dr. Berkson and Dr. Desaulniers discovered their cancers (just as this is the way many other women save their own lives, too)

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:

  • What is intestinal permeability and why is “Goldilocks” just right permeability critical.
  • What is coconut fat and how is this saturated fat very different from animal saturated fat.
  • What is LPS and endotoxins.
  • How to test for LPS and which labs do it.
  • How different oils effect this.
  • How different oils effect how we absorb sugar from food.
  • Who should be very moderate if not avoid coconut oil and who doesn’t need to.
  • What might coconut oil do to the gut wall and what are the studies suggesting this.
  • What might coconut oil to the colonic microbiome and what are the studies suggesting this.
  • Where is the Department of Nutrition that 1st published a pig and now a human study looking at every hour, up to five hour, blood levels of endotoxins, after consuming coconut oil.
  • This does not reflect food.
  • This probably does not reflect MTC oils.
  • The gut and gut wall benefit of spore probiotics.
  • The role of dietary fats and fatty liver.
