Episode 4 – How To Get A Good Night’s Sleep

On this episode we - nutritionist BetyLou Pierce and chiropractor Dr. George Burroughs - take a look at what it takes to get a good night’s sleep.



Episode 4 - How To Get  A Good Night’s Sleep

We begin by discussing the importance of getting a good night’s sleep: 

  • how it helps the brain cleanse itself of amyloid plaque (thought to be a leading cause of Alzheimer’s disease)
  • how it helps the liver detoxify and the muscles recuperate
  • how it boosts the Immune System, allowing you to resist disease 
  • how it strengthens EVERY system of the body

We then discuss the biggest obstacle to sleeping well: an inability to “turn off one’s brain”.

Most importantly, we provide holistic solutions for getting a good night’s sleep:

1) Physical Solutions - turning off the phone, computer and TV one hour before going to bed.  Minimizing the amount of “blue” light in the evenings. Testing pillows and beds for optimal comfort.

2) Emotional Solutions - before going to bed, spend time in prayer or meditation.  Write in a journal.  Process emotions from the day… let go of any negative ones.  Forgive self and others.

3) Nutritional Solutions - think twice before taking Melatonin.  Avoid heavy meals in the evening.  Take a mineral supplement after your last meal.  Consider valerian root, passion flower (herbs) and lavender (essential oil).

A few other tips revealed in this episode:

If you wake up in the middle of the night and can’t get back to sleep, consider taking a spoonful of local honey before going to bed.

If you suffer with bad dreams or nightmares, examine your diet for potential food sensitivities.  For example, some people state that consuming dairy late in the evening causes them to have “bad” dreams.

Episode 3 – Overcoming Anxiety: A Holistic Approach

On this episode we - nutritionist BetyLou Pierce and chiropractor Dr. George Burroughs - take a look at a holistic approach for overcoming anxiety.



Last week, on Episode #2, we talked about the 3 causes of all disease.

On this week’s episode we apply these 3 factors to help you overcome anxiety. 

As many people know, anxiety can be debilitating. From panic attacks to social anxiety, when it “hits you” the result can be terrifying.

We want to provide you with help… in three ways:

First, we discuss Physical tools such as deep breathing.  BetyLou takes you through a simple, yet powerful breathing exercise that will help you eliminate toxins and oxygenate your blood stream… both of which can help overcome anxiety.

Then, we introduce several Nutritional tips. Specific supplements and dietary recommendations are suggested.

Finally, we share talk about some powerful Emotional issues that we believe are not only tied into anxiety, but many other diseases as well.

As always, all information on this episode is for educational purposes only and is NOT meant to diagnose or treat anxiety or any other condition.  Consult your health care practitioner before making any changes.

Episode 2 – Three Causes of All Disease?

On this episode we - nutritionist BetyLou Pierce and chiropractor Dr. George Burroughs - take a look at what we believe are the 3 causes of all diseases.



We begin by tackling the current medical (allopathic) philosophy of “treating” sickness and disease with drugs and/or surgery and why it is limiting your body’s ability to truly heal.

We then discuss a broader perspective… a “holistic” approach that seeks to identify and correct the CAUSE of whatever is ailing you.

This holistic approach helps us transition smoothly into discussing what we believe are the 3 causes of all diseases.

Ultimately, we hope you learn two things from this episode:

1) When facing a health challenge, don’t just ask “What should I take?” Also ask “What is causing this?”

2) The cause of all health problems usually can be traced to a breakdown or weakness in the Physical, Nutritional, and/or Emotional factors of health.
