America is an aging country. Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is now the third leading cause of death in the United States in the aging population. The development of effective treatments and prevention is a major healthcare goal.
In this show you will hear about the visionary physician and his program that is successfully reversing AD. Along with the peer review data to prove it!
Dale E. Bredesen is a professor of neurology at the Easton Laboratories for Neurodegenerative Disease Research at the David Geffen School of Medicine at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA).
Dr. Bredesen has successfully trained 1500 medical doctors in his cognitive decline reversal protocols. These doctors are reporting that they are successfully replicating his success for cognitive decline.
In his 40 years in medicine, Dr. Bredesen has over 212 articles published in PubMed with his name on them.
Dr. Bredesen has published several studies from 10 to 100 patients demonstrating statistical efficacy in reversal of Alzheimer’s Disease within three to six months in mild and severe cases.
Your relationship with your brain rules every aspect of life. Yet, in today’s world, rife with emotional and pollutional toxicity, it’s way too easy to be ruled by your brain, rather than you being in charge.
“Brain hygiene” plays a prominent role in everyday world-life interactions and perceptions. This includes work, relationships and even cultural perceptions such as politics and inter-racial justice.
Shonte’ has a BA and Masters in Neuroscience, is in the middle of her PhD program, and took a break to start her OptiMind Neuroscience Coaching & Training Institute.
Shonte’ holds yearly neuroscience symposiums and had asked Dr. Berkson to co-lecture at one, a few years past. They have been interactive and mutually respective colleagues ever since.
In Shonte’s OptiMind Neuroscience Institute she instructs that if you learn how to “rule your brain” you can “rule your world”.
To be a successful yet peaceful person, to contribute to world peace and evolution, it is critical to learn how to master your brain so it doesn’t enslave yourself and your actions, even unconsciously. Especially unconsciously.
This show is about awakening and opening and utilizing your highest potential.

The world is experiencing a pandemic from COVID-19. So research is looking at every which way various physiologic states might be protective or increase vulnerability.
Across the world males seem more susceptible, compared to women (especially premenopausal women) to getting COVID. Once they get it, they are more susceptible to severe outcomes as well as fatalities, once again compared to younger women.
It has been suggested that estrogen may be protective against COVID-19 in females and/or that androgens (like testosterone) worsen COVID-19 in men.
As of this date, there are three studies being done giving males and menopausal females "estrogen" and/or "progesterone" replacement as it "may" be protective against COVID-19.
In This Show You will Hear About Estrogen
What About Progesterone?
What About Androgens?
A paper by Markus Hoffmann of the Leibniz Institute for Primate Research and colleagues in CELL, sent a lightning bolt through scientific community.
This work showed Covid can gain entry into the body more easily by the action of an enzyme called TMPRSS2, a membrane-bound enzyme. The enzyme cleaves the “spike” protein on the coronavirus’ surface, allowing the virus to fuse with the host cell’s membrane and get inside the cell. Male hormones turn this enzyme on.
In the prostate, TMPRSS2 is produced when male hormones bind to the androgen receptor.
Researchers haven’t established if androgens control TMPRSS2 in the lungs as they have in the prostate. But Andrea Alimonti, head of molecular oncology at Università della Svizzera italiana, looked at data on more than 42,000 men with prostate cancer in Italy. He and colleagues found that patients on androgen-deprivation therapy (ADT)—drugs that slash levels of testosterone—were only one-quarter as likely to contract COVID-19 as men with prostate cancer not on ADT. Men on ADT were also less likely to be hospitalized and to die.
In one Italian study, men with prostate cancer who received drugs that suppress androgens were much less likely to be infected with COVID.
Prostate cancer researcher Catherine Marshall of Johns Hopkins University is preparing a trial of bicalutamide, an older, inexpensive androgen receptor blocker, in 20 patients hospitalized within 3 days after they tested positive for COVID-19.
Women are being included in the trial, she adds, because they have androgens, too, although at lower levels than men.
What You will Learn Overall
There is a lot we don’t know, but in this show you will hear the latest about the link between hormones and COVID!
