(May take a few seconds to begin playing)


Episode 30 - Healing Herbs For Hormone Imbalances

Hormones are chemical messages that provide specific “instructions” to the body… instructions that dictate and determine how the body will act.

While every system of the body (nervous, digestive, immune, musculoskeletal) is impacted by hormones, there is one that stands out from the rest:

The reproductive system.

In fact, for most people the only hormones they are aware of are those associated with the male and female reproductive systems:

Estrogen
Progesterone
Testosterone

All three of these hormones are found in both men and women. However, it is the amount of each that differs.

Men have more testosterone while women have more estrogen and progesterone.

Problems occur in either sex when the balance of these hormones is off.

That’s where herbs come in.

Herbs may provide a natural solution for correcting hormone imbalances… which leads us to the topic of this week’s episode:

“Healing Herbs For Hormone Imbalances”

Specifically, we discuss herbs that may help correct estrogen, progesterone and/or testosterone deficiencies.

As a bonus, we also talk about an herb that has been demonstrated to help some men reduce an enlarged prostate.

This is a “can’t miss” episode for anyone dealing with a hormone imbalance.

Episode 28 – “No Plan B” with Caresty Carpenter

On this episode of the Get Healthy Alabama podcast we (Dr. George Burroughs and BetyLou Pierce) sit down with the dynamic Caresty Carpenter who, along with her husband Kevin, gave up successful jobs in Mississippi, moved to Alabama, opened a nutrition based business and is now making a tremendous impact on the local community… all without having a backup plan. Listen to learn how, and why, she did it!


(May take a few seconds to begin playing)


Episode 28 - “No Plan B” with Caresty Carpenter

Imagine being in your early 30’s, happily married with two beautiful children and a job you love.

Further imagine that your husband, who also enjoys his work, starts feeling a tug to move back to the town he grew up in.

A town in a different state.

What would you do?

If you’re Caresty Carpenter, you pray for wisdom and guidance.

You also pray for some kind of confirmation… like jobs opening up for you and your husband in the town you’re considering moving to.

Well, God is good and Caresty and her husband Kevin did receive confirmation.

However, it wasn’t in the line of work that either of them had been in.

It was in a completely new field… a field that together they were developing a growing interest in:

Health and nutrition.

Listen to this episode to learn how Caresty and Kevin went from working as a hair stylist and a trim carpenter in Mississippi to owning a thriving business called Spartan Nutrition in Saraland, Alabama.

Their journey has not been easy… but it has been rewarding.

It also HAD to work as there was “No Plan B”.

Her story will inspire you and build your faith 🙂

(May take a few seconds to begin playing)


Episode 27 - Healing Herbs, Part 1

Stressed?

Memory not what it once was?

Body inflamed?

If you answered "Yes" to any of these questions, don't worry.

We've got you covered.

Specifically, on this episode of the Get Healthy Alabama podcast we're going to talk about some herbs that may be just what you need.

(Always check with your health care provider first.)

Here's the thing about herbs:

They've been around for thousands of years as a natural way to treat various health conditions.

Unfortunately, they lost some of their shine when prescriptive drugs became popular approximately 100 years ago.

But the times, they are a changing.

Herbs are making a comeback... and in a big way.

People are tired of all the dangerous side effects associated with prescription drugs.

They want more natural ways to deal with health issues.

They want herbs!

So, herbs it is.

On this episode we talk about three healing herbs in particular:

1) Ashwaganda
2) Ginkgo Biloba
3) Turmeric

All three of these herbs provide a natural, safe and effective alternative to prescriptive drugs.

All three of these herbs should own a spot in your health “toolbox”… ready to be used if needed.

And, all three of these herbs are discussed in this week’s episode.

So please give it a listen and, as always, consider sharing it with a friend.

Episode 26 – The Power of the Mind in Health and Healing

On this episode of the Get Healthy Alabama podcast we (Dr. George Burroughs and BetyLou Pierce) look at how our thoughts and beliefs affect our health and ability to heal.


(May take a few seconds to begin playing)


Episode 26 - The Power of the Mind in Health and Healing

There is no doubt that our thoughts impact our health.

Good thoughts are good for you… bad thoughts aren’t.

That’s easy enough to understand but it goes much deeper than that.

For example, when you are sick, it’s normal to become consumed with how bad you feel.

You think about your symptoms, you talk about them, you even Google them.

But is this productive?

Not really.

Why?

Because your physiology follows your thoughts.

Therefore, focusing your mind on your symptoms will reinforce an unhealthy state.

However, focusing your mind on healthy thoughts will steer your body towards health.

Yes, it’s challenging, but try to focus your mind on HEALTH, not disease… ESPECIALLY when you don’t feel well.

But that’s not all.

While positive thinking is important, “right” thinking is imperative.

Specifically with regard to health, there are three distinctions you really should be clear about.

Three distinctions that - along with the importance of “positive” thinking - we discuss on this episode of the Get Healthy Alabama podcast.

These three distinctions involve understanding the difference between:

1) Health Care and Disease Care
2) Allopathic Medicine and Holistic Medicine
3) A Healer and A Teacher

By the time you’re done listening to this episode, you should be healthier than when you started.

All because your thoughts will be better 🙂

On this episode of the Get Healthy Alabama podcast we (Dr. George Burroughs and BetyLou Pierce) look at the supplements we take to keep our Immune Systems healthy and strong.


(May take a few seconds to begin playing)


Episode 25 - Prevention IS The Best Medicine: Supplements To Strengthen Your Immune System

On last week’s episode we talked about how this upcoming winter may be the worst one ever… especially with regard to our health.

Stress from the Coronavirus, schools potentially closing, and the presidential election will add to the “normal” stress of the holidays.

Throw in a potential economic downturn and the ingredients are there for a really bad “cold and flu” season.

Fortunately there ARE things you can do.

Natural things that will boost your health and prepare you to battle any bug or virus that may come your way.

We’ve already talked about three of them: Exercise, Sleep and Sunshine.

On this episode we talk about another one.

Supplements.

Specifically, we discuss the supplements that we take to strengthen our Immune System.

BetyLou shares with you her top 7 supplements while I share with you the three that I take daily.

Interestingly, this summer we each have increased the amount of supplements we take for the Immune System.

We suggest you do the same.

The ones we share with you should give you some ideas for getting started.

Episode 24 – How To Prepare For The Worst Winter Ever

On this episode of the Get Healthy Alabama podcast we (Dr. George Burroughs and BetyLou Pierce) help calm your fears as we head into what may be the worst winter ever.


(May take a few seconds to begin playing)



Episode 24 - How To Prepare For The Worst Winter Ever

I hate to sound negative but the writing is on the wall:

We may be heading into the worst winter ever… specifically with regard to our health.

Both individually and as a nation we may soon be battling with more sickness and disease than ever before.

I hope I’m wrong.

But here’s why I doubt it:

We are heading into some very stressful times.

Times that have the potential to destroy our Immune Systems.

For example:

The coronavirus doesn’t seem to be going away anytime soon.

Schools have no idea how/if they will make it through the fall semester.

Half of the country will be upset after the November presidential election.

The economy seems headed for a severe downturn.

Again, I hope I’m wrong about the impact of these stressful events on our health.

But let’s assume I’m right.

What should we do to prepare?

THAT is the topic of conversation in this week'sepisode of the Get Healthy Alabama podcast.

Specifically, we talk about three things you can start doing TODAY to help prepare yourself for this winter.

Three strategies that are proven to be effective for building your health.

Best of all, you don’t need to spend any money to implement them.

In addition, we share with you the two theories that are currently being used to battle the coronavirus.

Unfortunately, most people are only employing one of them.

We’ll tell you why that’s a prescription for failure… and what you can do to correct it.

Bottom line: this information is too important to miss.

Your future may depend upon it 🙂

Episode 23 – God’s Vitamin: The Sun

On this episode of the Get Healthy Alabama podcast we (Dr. George Burroughs and BetyLou Pierce) look at one of the most powerful, and controversial, influences on your health: the sun!


(For some reason, our regular audio player is misbehaving.  Please click the button below to hear this week's episode. Thanks!)


Episode 23 - God’s Vitamin: The Sun

Everyone loves the sun, right?

Wrong.

Everyone SHOULD love the sun. 

Unfortunately, the sun gets a bad rap.

You know, stuff like “it causes melanoma (skin cancer)”.

Or, "it’s really bad for your eyes… or skin… or hair."

Not only are these statements NOT true, they may actually be quite dangerous.

Why?

Because anything that keeps you from "getting sun" may be harming your health.

You see, God put the sun up in the sky for a reason... a reason you really need to know:

So that you can look, feel and BE your best.

The sun makes that possible.

But not just the part of the sun that manufacturers try to put into pill form and sell as Vitamin D.

The WHOLE spectrum of sunlight... just as God made it. 

(I actually refer to the sun as Vitamin S: "God's favorite vitamin.")

This whole spectrum of sunlight provides our bodies with benefits beyond what you've ever been taught.

Benefits that can help make you healthy and strong.

Specifically, on this week's episode of the podcast we'll discuss how the sun...

- Benefits your Hormones
- Helps prevent 20 types of cancer
- May be the “missing piece” in your weight loss battle
- Can lead to a better night’s sleep
- Reduces certain types of depression

We'll also discuss the major role sunshine plays in skin diseases such as acne, eczema and psoriasis...

...plus we'll reveal a special MENS ONLY benefit that few guys know anything about.

Everyone wants to know which supplements they should take to restore the health of their digestive system.

There are three phases in this protocol process, each involving specific supplements:

In this phase the emphasis is on digestion… breaking down your foods into usable parts.

Supplements: digestive enzyme (Zypan, AF Betafood, and/or Diaplex) and natural laxative (Colax)


Phase 2: Elimination

In this phase the emphasis is on eliminating parasites and other unhealthy bugs from your digestive system.

Supplements: Parasite Cleansing Herbs (Wormwood and Zymex 2)



Phase 3: Restoration

In this phase the emphasis is on restoring the good bugs into your digestive system.

Supplements: Prebiotic (GI Stability) and Probiotic (Lact-Enz)

————————
