Episode 22:48 DON’T Change Your Diet… Do This Instead

On this episode of the Get Healthy Alabama podcast we (Dr. George Burroughs and BetyLou Pierce) talk about the ONE thing you MUST change if you want to improve your health… and it’s NOT your diet.


(May take a few seconds to begin playing)


Episode 22:48 DON’T Change Your Diet… Do This Instead

There are two things we want you to learn from this episode.

The first is this:

Your behaviors determine your health.

- Smoke too many cigarettes and you’ll get lung cancer.

- Drink too much alcohol and you’ll get cirrhosis of the liver.

- Eat too much sugar and you’ll develop Diabetes.

You get the idea.

Now, let’s look at the second lesson:

It actually begins with a question:

If your behaviors determine your health, what determines your behaviors?

Great question… and an important one as well!

Important because it is your MINDSET - what you BELIEVE - regarding exercising, eating right, getting enough sleep, spending time in the sun, etc… that will determine your behaviors.

And therein lies the second lesson:

Your MINDSET determines your behaviors.

Connect these two lessons together and you’ll have a tremendous understanding of health:

1) Your behaviors determine your health.

2) Your MINDSET determines your behaviors.

So, why is this important?

Because when seeking to improve one’s health, most people focus solely on the first lesson… on changing their behaviors.

For example, they begin to do things like exercise more and/or eat better.

And while these changes are good, they most likely will not be sustained, nor have a lasting impact, if the MINDSET of the person hasn’t also changed.

That is, if in your mind you SEE yourself as unhealthy, all the healthy behaviors in the world won’t, in the long run, improve your health.

Sure, you may look and feel healthier for awhile, but in the long run you’ll sabotage your efforts and revert back to behaviors that are consistent with your MINDSET.

For this reason, it is vitally important to identify and correct weaknesses in your MINDSET if you want to have any hope of adopting, and sustaining, healthy behaviors.

THAT is what this episode is about…

The importance of working on the one aspect of your health that most people, and doctors, ignore:

Your MINDSET.

Be sure to give this episode a good listen and then share it with a friend.

Thanks!

Episode 22:47 The Miraculous Health Benefits Of Gratitude

On this episode of the Get Healthy Alabama podcast we talk about Thanksgiving and the miraculous health benefits of gratitude.


(May take a few seconds to begin playing)


Episode 22:47 The Miraculous Health Benefits Of Gratitude

Happy Thanksgiving!

It’s awesome that we have a holiday dedicated to gratitude… to the simple act of “Giving Thanks.”

In addition, it’s awesome how many health benefits are connected to “Giving Thanks.”

For example, did you know that people who practice “Giving Thanks” have healthier Immune Systems than those who don’t?

Or that they handle stress better?

And sleep better?

Those three benefits alone have a HUGE impact on one’s health… and they all can be improved simply by making “Giving Thanks” a habit.

But that’s not all.

People who practice “Giving Thanks” display higher levels of happiness, joy, enthusiasm, optimism and love.

Again, that’s not all.

People with an “attitude of gratitude” also experience less bitterness, resentment, greed, envy, fear, anxiety, worry and anger.

Wow!!!

Now, if you could take ALL of these benefits and wrap them into either a pharmaceutical drug or a nutritional supplement… you’d be a billionaire!

But you can’t and that’s okay because you don’t need another pill in your life.

Instead, all you need to do is get better at “Giving Thanks.”

And, in this episode, we share with you simple ways to do that.

Specifically, we share three "tips" that anyone can implement into their life today so that they can begin to experience the miraculous benefits immediately.

So, give this episode a good listen. Then be sure to share it with a friend.

One last thing:

Thank YOU for supporting this podcast. We really are incredibly grateful for your support!

(May take a few seconds to begin playing)


Episode 22:44 Natural Treatments For The Flu

Episode 22:43 Doctors and Nurses: The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly

On this episode of the Get Healthy Alabama podcast we (Dr. George Burroughs and BetyLou Pierce) talk about the good, the bad and the ugly with regard to the medical profession.


(May take a few seconds to begin playing)


Episode 22:43 Doctors and Nurses: The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly

Every profession seems to have its fair share of The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly.

You see it in politics, education, and entertainment.

You even see it in organized religion.

EVERY profession has GOOD people who get caught up having to do BAD things because of UGLY (corrupt) leaders in position of authority.

The medical profession is no exception.

In fact, the medical profession may be the leader in this field.

On this episode we take a close look at what REALLY goes on in the medical profession.

Specifically, we look at doctors and nurses:

GOOD people who oftentimes are stuck doing BAD things because of the UGLY (corrupt) individuals and organizations that set the “guidelines” they must follow.

By the time you’re done listening you’ll have learned:

1) The GOOD that doctors and nurses do on a daily basis.

2) The BAD influences doctors and nurses are subjected to.

3) The UGLY and corrupt “puppet masters” that are pulling the strings.

Give this episode a good listen as it will help you see the medical profession in a new light.

A light that shines upon The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly.

Thanks!

Episode 22:42 Breast Cancer and October: It’s Time We Moved BEYOND “Awareness”

On this episode of the Get Healthy Alabama podcast we (Dr. George Burroughs and BetyLou Pierce) talk about the month of October… Breast Cancer… and how it’s time we moved BEYOND “awareness.”


(May take a few seconds to begin playing)


Episode 22:42 Breast Cancer and October: It’s Time We Moved BEYOND “Awareness”

Everyone knows that October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

That’s awesome!

Everyone also knows that, over the past several decades, Billions of dollars have been raised for the cause.

That’s a lot of money… and a testament to the heart of Americans.

People will give to a worthy cause.

And Breast Cancer Awareness is certainly a worthy cause… right?

Not exactly.

Not if you are expecting RESULTS.

Let me explain:

Raising awareness of breast cancer is great.

However, you would think that after raising hundreds of BILLIONS of dollars there would be measurable improvements when it comes to the prevention and treatment of breast cancer.

There’s not.

For example, according to the CDC 41,144 women died in the Untied States from breast cancer in 1999.

Twenty years (and Billions of dollars raised) later guess how many women died from breast cancer?

42,280

It’s true… MORE women died of breast cancer in 2019 than in 1999.

How can that be?

How can a campaign such as “Breast Cancer Awareness Month” help raise over one hundred Billion dollars, and the number of deaths from breast cancer INCREASE from 1999 to 2019?

It doesn’t make sense.

But that’s not all.

During this same twenty year period, the number of NEW cases of breast cancer also went UP!

Here’s the data from the CDC:

In 1999 there were 198,591 new cases of breast cancer.

In 2019 that number had jumped to 264,121.

That’s an increase of over 65,000 new cases.

That’s not good!

Something clearly isn’t working.

Which brings us to this week’s episode.

On this episode we discuss how, after raising hundreds of Billions of dollars we should expect MORE than simple “awareness” of Breast Cancer.

That is, women should be getting more from their doctors and the American Cancer Society.

More comprehensive advice… advice beyond “get a mammogram.”

More conversations regarding how to PREVENT breast cancer... conversations that include strategies, tactics and programs shown to reduce the chances of getting breast cancer cases and/or dying from it..

More information demonstrating what can be done to enhance treatment once a woman gets breast cancer.

More information explaining how to prevent a previous cancer from coming back.

Here's the bottom line:

It’s time to move BEYOND breast cancer awareness.

It’s time for answers.

Time for results.

We get the ball rolling on this episode.

Give it a good listen and then share it with a friend.

Thanks!

Episode 22:40 Everything You Really, Really Need To Know About COVID

On this episode of the Get Healthy Alabama podcast we (Dr. George Burroughs and BetyLou Pierce) discuss things EVERYONE should know about the Coronavirus, COVID-19… and COVID-23


(May take a few seconds to begin playing)


Episode 22:40 Everything You Really, Really Need To Know About COVID

Let me ask you a question:

What’s the difference between the Coronavirus and COVID?

(Yes, there is a difference… a very IMPORTANT difference.)

Believe it or not, despite the pandemic dominating the headlines for the past two and a half years, most people can’t answer that question.

(If that’s you, don’t worry. On this episode we’ll teach you the difference!)

Let me ask you another question:

Did you know that there is no such thing as a COVID test?

It’s true.

(We explain why this is true on this episode.)

One last question:

Did you know that, by now, it’s almost certain that EVERYONE has had the Coronavirus (whether they know it or not)?

Again, that’s also true.

Nearly every American adult has had the Coronavirus. Many, however, have no idea as they were not symptomatic.

On this episode we talk about the importance of this.

But that’s not all.

On this episode we talk about a dozen topics related to the Coronavirus and COVID.

Topics you NEED to know… but probably won’t ever hear about from the mainstream media.

Give this episode a good listen.

In fact, listen to just the first NINE minutes of this podcast and you’ll know more about COVID than all of your friends.

Listen to ALL twenty-six minutes and you’ll know more about COVID than everyone in your community, including your doctors.

Bold claim?

Yes, but it’s also one we strongly believe.

One more thing:

Take notes… AND share this episode with your family and friends.

Thanks!

Episode 22:39 – Balancing Female Hormones

On this episode of the Get Healthy Alabama podcast we (Dr. George Burroughs and BetyLou Pierce) share what can be done NATURALLY to help women balance their hormones. 


(May take a few seconds to begin playing)


Episode 22:39 Balancing Female Hormones

On last week’s episode of the Get Healthy Alabama podcast we talked about two very inexpensive (under $5) remedies that provided tremendous relief for a man with excruciating pain in his upper back and a woman suffering with daily headaches.

As a result of that episode, several women have asked if there was an inexpensive remedy for hormone imbalances.

Something simple that could help them deal with their many symptoms.

The answer is…

No.

The truth is, there is NO simple remedy that will balance a woman’s hormones.

No “magic cure.”

No “take this and everything will be alright pill.”

But there IS hope.

That is, there are things women can do nutritionally to help them balance their hormones.

Changes they can make in their diet.

Supplements they can take at the appropriate times.

On this episode we talk about these nutritional strategies.

Strategies that could go a long way towards helping women balance their hormones.

Give this episode a good listen and then share it with a friend.

Thanks!
