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.

Episode 21 – The Healthy Gut Protocol: Part 2 – “Supplements”

On this episode of the Get Healthy Alabama podcast we (Dr. George Burroughs and BetyLou Pierce) continue our discussion regarding “The Healthy Gut Protocol”. Specifically, we suggest the exact supplements you may need to get your digestive system healthy and strong.


(May take a few seconds to begin playing)


Episode 21 - The Healthy Gut Protocol: Part 2- Supplements

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

This episode provides the answers.

We start by discussing the specific diet we believe will help restore your gut’s health… along with the 3 core supplements you should consider taking EVERY day.

We then describe a 10 Day Gut Reset Protocol that is intended to act as a “framework” you can be used with the guidance of a health care professional. (It is NOT intended to to be used as a treatment or program without such guidance.)

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

 

Phase 1: Digestion

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)

————————

By the end of this episode you should have clarity on the direction you want to go with regard to gut health.

Episode 20 – The Healthy Gut Protocol

On this episode of the Get Healthy Alabama podcast we (Dr. George Burroughs and BetyLou Pierce) talk about WHY gut health is important, HOW gut problems develop and WHAT can be done to correct them


(May take a few seconds to begin playing)


Episode 20 - The Healthy Gut Protocol

WHY, HOW, WHAT

On this episode we begin discussing a protocol that you can implement to improve the health of your gut.

We start by addressing three questions:

1) WHY is Gut Health important?
2) HOW do Gut Problems develop?
3) WHAT can be done to correct Gut Problems?


1) WHY is Gut Health important?

Because it influences the health of every system of your body! The Immune System, The Hormone System, The Nervous System and, of course, the Digestive System.

In addition, EVERY Autoimmune Disorder appears to begin in the gut… and the big “killers” - Heart Disease, Cancer and Type 2 Diabetes - all are negatively impacted by gut dysfunction.


2) HOW do Gut Problems develop?

Poor dietary choices… and stress.


3) WHAT can be done to correct Gut Problems?

Eat better and work on reducing/eliminating stress. (Yes, we know that’s easier said than done).

Supplements also play a huge role… and will be the topic of our next episode.

Needless to say, we dive deeper into each of these question in an episode that flows quickly and is full of good information.

As always, please leave a comment and share this episode with a friend.

Episode 19 – The Role of the Microbiome in Health and Disease

On this episode of the Get Healthy Alabama podcast we (Dr. George Burroughs and BetyLou Pierce) look at the hottest topic in health and disease: the Microbiome


(May take a few seconds to begin playing)


Episode 19 - The Role of the Microbiome in Health and Disease

On the past seven episodes we have talked about the Digestive System… literally from top to bottom.

Today, we take a look at the millions of “bugs” that line most of the digestive tract. Bugs that include bacteria, viruses, fungi, yeast and parasites.

Collectively, these bugs are know as the “Microbiome” and they play a huge role in determining a person’s overall level of health and disease.

For example, your brain, your hormones, your immune system, your skin, your digestion, your heart, and even your pain levels are ALL strongly impacted by the health of your Microbiome.

Amazing, right?

So, how does one maintain a healthy Microbiome?

What things damage it?

How can I repair it?

These, and many other topics, including Probiotic supplements are discussed on this week’s episode.

You don’t want to miss it!

As always, please leave a comment and share this episode with a friend.

Thanks!

Episode 18 – More Than Just A “Pathway For Poop”

On this episode of the Get Healthy Alabama podcast we (Dr. George Burroughs and BetyLou Pierce) continue our study of the Digestive System by looking at the many important functions of the Large Intestine.


(May take a few seconds to begin playing)


Episode 18 - More Than Just A “Pathway For Poop”

Did you know that the food you eat has a job… and it’s NOT to “make you feel good?”

The food you eat is meant to nourish you.

Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy a good meal but the primary reason I eat isn't for the food to make me happy.

It’s for the food to nourish me!

“How” it does that is through a process called digestion.

Digestion starts with food entering the mouth. It is chewed and then sent to the stomach where it is broken down into small, usable pieces.

When the stomach finishes its job, the food passes into the Small Intestine for further breakdown.

Once the food is completely broken down, the “good” parts of the food - the vitamins, minerals, amino acids, fatty acids and simple sugars - are ABSORBED into the body so that they can be taken to the muscles, glands and organs.

This is all great, but I have a question:

What happens to the parts of the food that were NOT needed by the body?

The parts that were deemed “not good?”

It’s actually quite simple:

The “unwanted” food - along with toxins and dead bacteria - continues down the digestive tract and enters the Large Intestine (also known as the “colon”) before eventually being eliminated via a bowel movement.

Not very exciting, right?

Well, actually it is.

You see, a lot actually goes on in the Large Intestine.  So much so that it takes about two full days for this unwanted “food” to pass through the Large Intestine.

What happens during that time and how does it impact your health?

THAT is the topic of this episode.

Specifically, we will discuss:

The importance of making sure that whatever enters the Large Intestine LEAVES the Large Intestine. (Toxins laying around can lead to colon cancer)

The first question every doctor should ask a patient

The importance of the “fiber-water” combination

Our favorite herb for dealing with constipation

Our favorite supplements for dealing with hemorrhoids

Our suggestion for eliminating parasites

We also discuss how the Large Intestine is home to so much of our body’s microflora… the bacteria that has a profound impact on our health.

Episode 17 – Understanding Leaky Gut

On this episode of the Get Healthy Alabama podcast we (Dr. George Burroughs and BetyLou Pierce) look at a condition that affects millions of people… yet few know anything about it: Leaky Gut 


(May take a few seconds to begin playing)


Episode 17 - Understanding Leaky Gut

The body is amazing… especially the Digestive System!

Food goes in one end (the mouth) and out the other (the anus). Along the way, the nutrients the body needs to nourish the cells, muscles and organs are taken into the body through a process called absorption.

Specifically absorption occurs in the part of the digestive tract known as the Small Intestine.

The nutrients that are absorbed from the digestive system into the blood stream do so through “tight junctions”. These tight junctions only allow “good” nutrients to pass through.

Unfortunately, a poor diet, NSAID’s, antibiotics, gluten, dairy, sugar, pesticides, and stress can all create “holes” in these tight junctions, allowing “bad” particles to pass into the bloodstream and circulate throughout the body.

These “holes” are referred to as a Leaky Gut and the bad particles that pass into the bloodstream can result in a bunch of health problems… most notably, skin disorders, AutoImmune Disease and neurological disturbances.

Understanding Leaky Gut is vital to maintain and achieve good health.

Be ready to take some notes 🙂

As always, we hope you enjoy this episode and share it with a friend.

Episode 16 – The Small Intestine Has A Big Impact On Your Health

On this episode of the Get Healthy Alabama podcast we (Dr. George Burroughs and BetyLou Pierce) look at the powerhouse of the Digestive System… the Small Intestine


(May take a few seconds to begin playing)


Episode 16 - The Small Intestine Has A Big Impact On Your Health

The Stomach and Small Intestine are responsible for the breakdown (digestion) of our foods. This breakdown allows nutrients to become small enough so that they can be absorbed into the body and used as nourishment for our cells, muscles, glands and organs.

Get your digestion right and you will probably find your Nervous System (especially the brain), your Immune System and your Hormone Systems all working better.

In fact, your skin should also respond positively to a healthy Digestive System.

Last week, we talked about the Stomach and its role in digestion.

In this week’s episode we continue discussing the Digestive System by focusing on the role of the Small Intestine.

Some highlights:

- We discuss why, although the Stomach needs to be acidic, the Small Intestine needs to be more alkaline.

- The two (actually three) organs that contribute enzymes to the Small Intestine

- The powerful substance that helps eliminates toxins from the body… via the Small Intestine

- What to do if you don’t have a Gall Bladder

As always, we hope you enjoy this episode and share it with a friend.

Episode 15 – The Stomach… and Acid Reflux

On this episode of the Get Healthy Alabama podcast we (Dr. George Burroughs and BetyLou Pierce) continue to look at the Digestive System… specifically the stomach and the number one digestive problem of the stomach: Acid Reflux.


(May take a few seconds to begin playing)


​Episode 15 - The Stomach… and Acid Reflux

The first thing you should know about the stomach is that it MUST be acidic for digestion to take place.

To ensure its acidity, Hydrochloric Acid (HCl) is secreted into the stomach whenever the presence of food is detected.

This strong acid serves two important purposes:

1) Destroy any harmful bacteria, viruses and parasites that may be in the food.

2) Activate Pepsin… a digestive enzyme that plays a major role in the breakdown of protein.

When all is well, digestion in the stomach works like a charm. However, when things aren’t working well, symptoms appear.

Bloating, gas, indigestion and heartburn are all signs of improper stomach digestion.

Possible causes are:

Poor food choices
Insufficient Digestive Enzymes
Diluted Digestive Enzymes

Undigested food in the stomach can cause additional problems.

Specifically, undigested food can begin to “rot”. This rotting food can then produce MORE acid.

Excess acid can begin to move up into the esophagus causing heartburn.

What’s the solution?

We DON’T recommend medications like Prilosec, Pepcin, or Nexium.

Why not?

Because they only mask the symptoms… they DON’T correct the underlying problem.

Plus they are linked with increase chance of stomach cancer, bone fractures and kidney disease.

Instead, we recommend a few simple, common sense tactics that are not only easy to employ… they’re safe and effective at CORRECTING the problem.

You can find out all about them by listening to this episode!
