Episode 21:10 – Understanding “Antibodies,” “Herd Immunity” and the difference between “The Coronavirus” and “Covid”

On this episode of the Get Healthy Alabama podcast we (Dr. George Burroughs and BetyLou Pierce) discuss the importance of understanding “Antibodies”, “Herd Immunity” and the difference between the terms “The Coronavirus” and “Covid”


(May take a few seconds to begin playing)


Episode 21:10 - Understanding "Antibodies", "Herd Immunity" and the difference between "The Coronavirus" and "Covid"

Approximately one year ago, the Coronavirus turned the world upside down.

Yet despite its impact on all of society, it’s incredible how few people understand what “The Coronavirus” is and how it differs from “Covid.”

And, yes, there IS a difference… a very important difference.

We talk about that on this episode.

We also talk about “Antibodies” and “Herd Immunity.”

I’m sure you’ve heard about them… but do you really know what they mean?

If not, don’t worry. We’re going to tell you all about them.

Specifically, on this episode we’re going to share with you:

WHAT Antibodies are.
HOW you get them.
WHY they are important.

We also discuss Herd Immunity…

HOW it’s attained and WHY we believe that we, as a nation, have already reached it.

Our hope is that you are going to walk away from this episode with a much greater understanding of the Coronavirus… and Covid… and Antibodies… and Herd Immunity.

This episode is rich with knowledge.

After listening, please share the wealth with your friends!

Episode 21:9 – Viruses: What You Don’t Know CAN Hurt You

On this episode of the Get Healthy Alabama podcast we (Dr. George Burroughs and BetyLou Pierce) discuss the important role that viruses play in our lives and how we can live with them in a peaceful and healthy manner.


(May take a few seconds to begin playing)


Episode 21:9 - Viruses: What You Don't Know CAN Hurt You

Despite what you’ve been told, viruses are NOT bad for you.

Viruses actually provide your body with continuous “updates”… updates of genetic code that allow you to function in an ever-changing world.

Kind of like the way your smart phone needs updates to stay current.

The truth is, without these viruses and their genetic updates, we wouldn't be able to survive.

1) So, why do viruses get such a bad rap?

The main reason viruses get a bad rap is because we don’t understand them.

For example, guess how many viruses are living right now, on and in your body?

1 million?  No.

1 billion?  No.

1 trillion?  No.

Believe it or not, there are approximately 380 trillion viruses living on and inside your body right now.

380 trillion!!!

That’s a lot! In fact, it’s 10 times more than the number of bacteria in your body.

Amazingly, the overwhelming majority of these viruses peacefully co-exist with you.

Peacefully, because most viruses have found what they want: a “place to hang out.”

You see, viruses need to find places in your body to “host” them so that they can reproduce.

This desire to find a location where they can reproduce is so strong that it will cause them to explore a variety of options in your body.

2) So, why are viruses killing people?

Actually, they’re not.  (Stay with me)

As I said, the job of a virus is to bring your body “genetic updates”… and they do so by finding places to “hang out and reproduce.”

Typically, their “hang out place” is inside of bacteria.  

What they’ll do is sneak into bacteria, replicate themselves, and then burst out so that they can go “infect” more bacteria.

Again, this is what MOST viruses do.

SOME viruses, however, don't care for bacteria so they try to infect themselves into your cells.

Especially the cells of your lungs.

Your body does not like that.

In fact, it has a whole “team” standing by to prevent it from happening.

This team is called your Immune System.

And, it was designed by God to work really well... when you let it.

Unfortunately, there are times when your Immune System becomes weak and/or overworked.

At such times, it is possible for a virus to get past your Immune System and into your cells.

Your cells, of course, don’t want the virus… but the virus doesn’t care. It decides to “hang out and reproduce.”

And it does... inside of the cells of organs such as your lungs.

THIS is what makes you sick.

THIS is what causes people to die.

However, it is important to understand that the REAL problem was NOT the virus.

It was your body’s inability to suppress the virus.

Your Immune System’s inability to protect your cells from the virus.

THAT’S what made you sick.

THAT’S what causes people to die.

3) So, what can you do?

The KEY to preventing, and overcoming, the sickness and disease associated with viruses is to…

Strengthen your Immune System!!!

And, God gave us an abundance of ways to do that.

Natural ways… using resources He provided.

Here’s twelve of them… what I call the “Dynamic Dozen”

1) Sugar - avoid it

2) Sleep - get it (7-9 hours daily)

3) Stress - reduce/manage it

4) Sunlight - Vitamin D

5) Stomach - feed it real food

6) Spine - stay “aligned” 

7) Supplements - Vitamins C, D and Zinc

8) Sound - music has power

9) Sweat - exercise

10) Saturate - drink only water

11) Smile - positive attitude

12) Speak - words of faith

There’s actually four more of them that we talk about in this week’s episode.

Learn about them (they’re really powerful) along with “all things viruses”.

And, as always, share this episode with a friend.

Episode 21:8 – Questions, And Answers, About The Vaccine

On this episode of the Get Healthy Alabama podcast we (Dr. George Burroughs and BetyLou Pierce) go over 15 questions everyone should ask - and know the answer to - before deciding on whether or not to get the Covid-19 vaccine.


(May take a few seconds to begin playing)


Episode 21:8 - Questions, and Answers, About the Vaccine

There is so much about the Covid-19 vaccine that raises questions.

Perhaps the three most important ones are:

1) Is it safe?

2) Is it effective?

3) Does it prevent the virus from being transmitted (spread)?

On this episode we explore those questions… along with a dozen more.

Here they are:

DID YOU KNOW…

 - There has never been an effective vaccine for ANY of the 6 previous Coronaviruses?

- It typically takes 5-10 years to develop a new vaccine… not 8 months?

- The Covid-19 vaccine has NOT been FDA approved?

- The Covid-19 vaccine contains technology that has NEVER been approved for use in humans?

- 33% of Covid-19 deaths have been in individuals over the age of 85?

- NOT one person over the age of 85 was included in the Pfizer vaccine trials?

- NOT one woman under the age of 40 was allowed in the Pfizer vaccine trials unless she was on birth control?

- Vaccine manufacturers CANNOT be sued or held liable for ANY injuries or damages incurred from the vaccine?

- Over 99% of individuals who have had Covid have survived?

- Covid cases are down by 77% since Christmas?

- It is virtually impossible for a person under the age of 40 to die from Covid-19?

- There are some people who may want to “consider” getting the vaccine?

Episode 21:7 – The Power of Fasting… and Intermittent Fasting

On this episode of the Get Healthy Alabama podcast we (Dr. George Burroughs and BetyLou Pierce) discuss the power of Fasting, and Intermittent Fasting.


(May take a few seconds to begin playing)


Episode 21:7 - The Power of Fasting... and Intermittent Fasting

For years, doctors and health experts avoided the topic of Fasting.

In fact, many thought it was unhealthy.

Fortunately, times have changed and the many benefits of Fasting have been brought to light.

For example, studies now show that Fasting appears to…

1) Lower High Blood Sugar Levels
2) Aid in Weight Loss
3) Reduce Inflammation
4) Improve Blood Pressure
5) Lower High Cholesterol Levels
6) Lower High Triglyceride Levels
7) Boost Brain Function
8) Prevent Neurodegenerative Disorders
9) Increase Growth Hormone
10) Extend Lifespan
11) Prevent Cancer
12) Improve Chemotherapy’s Effectiveness

Makes you wonder why everyone isn’t Fasting?

Or, at least, why aren’t we being told more about it?

One reason is because there is no money to be made from Fasting.

Think about it…

When you Fast, you are NOT buying a food, a drug, or a supplement.

That is, there is nothing for companies to profit from when you Fast.

As a result, you won’t see any commercials or ads promoting it.

Fortunately, we’re not like everyone else.

We’re going to talk about Fasting because it’s a great way to Get Healthy.

It’s also a great way to lower your blood sugar… which is a topic we’ve been talking about in our recent episodes.

Give this episode a good listen as you will learn HOW Fasting works and why it’s so good for you.

You’ll also learn about different types of Fasts, including the very popular Intermittent Fasting.

As always, after listening, please share this episode with a friend.

Thanks!

Episode 21:6 – Supplements For Lowering Blood Sugar Levels

On this episode of the Get Healthy Alabama podcast we (Dr. George Burroughs and BetyLou Pierce) discuss nutritional supplements that may help lower your blood sugar levels.


(May take a few seconds to begin playing)


Episode 21:6 - Supplements For Lowering Blood Sugar Levels

On the past few episodes of the podcast, we have been discussing the damaging effects of high blood sugar levels.

Obesity, Type 2 Diabetes and Insulin Resistance are just a few of the conditions we mentioned.

Other problems include Cancer, Alzheimer’s, Heart Disease, Stroke, Kidney Disease, Blindness, Peripheral Neuropathy, Liver Disease, Enlarged Prostate, and PCOS.

Needless to say, no one wants to suffer with any of these conditions.

No one wants to have high blood sugar levels.

Fortunately, it is possible to reverse high blood sugar levels naturally, without the use of drugs.

How?

One approach is to incorporate the four strategies we covered on last week’s episode:

1) Eat less food

2) Eat less often

3) Drink only water

4) Exercise

On this week’s episode, we add something to the mix… something that will work WITH those four strategies to make them even more effective:

Supplements!

Specifically, we talk about four natural, whole-food supplements that can be used to try to lower blood sugar levels naturally.

What are they?

You have to listen to the podcast to find out.

You also have to listen to find out why the number one drug recommended by medical doctors for dealing with high blood sugar levels does nothing to address the cause.

Nor is it as safe as the supplements we discuss.

Get out your pen and paper as you listen and, if you’re interested in ordering any of the supplements mentioned, you can do so by going to:

Episode 21:4 – The ONE Number Everyone Should Know

On this episode of the Get Healthy Alabama podcast we (Dr. George Burroughs and BetyLou Pierce) discuss the ONE number everyone should know.


(May take a few seconds to begin playing)


Episode 21:4 - The ONE Number Everyone Should Know

You probably know how much you weigh.

You may even know your blood pressure… and perhaps your cholesterol level.

But do you know your A1C level?

If not, you should.

Here’s why:

While there is no ONE number that can tell the whole story regarding your health, your A1C level paints a pretty good picture. 

Why?

Because a high A1C level is linked to many of the top “killer” diseases in our society today.

Obesity, Cancer, Heart Disease, Alzheimer’s, Type 2 Diabetes and Kidney Disease are just a few of the conditions strongly linked to a high A1C number.

On this episode we take a look at how to find out your A1C score.

More importantly, we explain WHAT an A1C score is, WHY it is so important and HOW it gets to a “high” level.

This is information that EVERYONE will be talking about in a few years.

Why wait?

Learn all you can NOW regarding the incredible importance of knowing your A1C level.

It’s a big step towards “Getting Healthy.”

(May take a few seconds to begin playing)


Episode 21:3 - The Incredible Link Between Cancer, Alzheimer's, Diabetes and Heart Disease
 

There’s no doubt you know how devastating the diseases Cancer, Alzheimer’s, Diabetes and Heart Disease are.

How, each year, they are responsible for millions of deaths around the world.

But did you know that there is ONE condition that connects them all?

A condition that YOU can control!

A condition that is primarily caused by the foods you eat.

A condition that can result in a “non-alcoholic” form of liver disease.

A condition that causes obesity.

A condition that you, or someone you know, is affected by.

A condition called Insulin Resistance.

On this episode we explain how Insulin Resistance develops and the various diseases it can cause or significantly contribute to.

We also discuss the initial signs and symptoms of Insulin Resistance (ever hear of Skin Tags?) so that you can be aware of its existence BEFORE it does any serious damage.

Please give this episode a good listen as it may very well help save your life… or the life of a loved one.

Episode 21:2 – Insulin Resistance: What You Need To Know… And Why

On this episode of the Get Healthy Alabama podcast we (Dr. George Burroughs and BetyLou Pierce) discuss the ONE health problem that may be the cause of many other health problems.


(May take a few seconds to begin playing)


Episode 21:2 - Insulin Resistance: What You Need To Know... And Why
 

If you enrolled in a Nutrition class, what would you expect to learn?

Facts about vitamins, minerals, protein, fat and carbohydrates?

Absolutely.

How to heal with herbs?

No doubt.

What you may not expect to learn is “How the Fuel System of the body works.”

And, that’s a shame because how the body fuels itself is of vital importance.

Something you NEED to know.

Yet it’s seldom taught… even though it’s not difficult to understand.

You see, your body’s Fuel System provides fuel, or “energy”, to every cell, muscle and organ of the body so they can perform the functions for which they were designed.

HOW the Fuel System does this is as follows:

1) The food you eat provides your body with fuel.

2) The cells, muscles and organs take, and use, the fuel they need.

3) Any “excess” fuel is either stored in the liver or turned into fat.

This process works great… until something goes wrong.

And, believe it or not, something goes wrong for millions of us.

Not with the Fuel System itself, but with how much we ask of it.

We “flood it” with too much fuel… especially from starches and sugars.

As a result, we develop "Insulin Resistance"... which can lead to the development of some bad things.

Things like obesity, diabetes, heart disease, cancer, Alzheimer’s… and increased chance of dying from the Coronavirus.

(Yes, an overworked Fuel System can increase your chances of dying from the Coronavirus!)

But that’s not all.

In our opinion, many other health problems are either caused or significantly affected by an overworked Fuel System… especially those problems that aren’t responding to any type of treatment.

There is, however, some good news:

The damage done by an overworked Fuel System system can be corrected!

People CAN reverse these Fuel System problems.

Conditions can be cured!

Not by some “miracle” drug or pill but by LEARNING how the Fuel System was designed to work… and then working WITH it!

THAT’S what this episode is about… learning how the Fuel System works.

Our guess is that you’ll learn more about this topic from this episode than you ever have from a doctor.

More importantly, you’ll be inspired to make changes that will have a positive impact on your health… and on your life 🙂

Episode 21:1 – How To Lose 67 Pounds… Without Even Trying

On this episode of the Get Healthy Alabama podcast we (Dr. George Burroughs and BetyLou Pierce) sit down with the incredible Anedra Brown to discuss how she's lost 67 pounds… without even trying!


(May take a few seconds to begin playing)


Episode 21:1 - How To Lose 67 Pounds... Without Even Trying
 

Believe it or not, for many people, the key to losing weight is to NOT try.

Sounds crazy, right?

It’s not. 

In fact, it makes a lot of sense… once you understand the secret.

The secret followed by this week’s special guest Anedra Brown.

You see, Anedra never set out to lose weight.

Instead, she simply wanted to “Get Healthy.”

To do what she had to do to get rid of the joint pain and stiffness that caused her to hurt all over… leaving her a prisoner in her own body, unable to enjoy even the simplest activities of life.

This desire to “Get Healthy” led her to make changes in her lifestyle.

Physical changes.

Nutritional changes.

Emotional changes.

Changes that have helped her “Get Healthy.”

And, therein lies the secret.

Remember, Anedra never set out to lose weight.

Instead, her goal was to “Get Healthy” so her joint pain would disappear.

She did… and her joint pain disappeared.

In addition, as a “side-effect”, she dropped 67 pounds.

Yes, 67pounds!!!

NOT by trying to lose weight… but by trying to “Get Healthy.”

Best of all, she’s not done.

Her journey to her best health is still going on… and will, for quite some time.

A journey ANYONE can take.

(Even you!)

Listen to this episode to hear Anedra’s inspiring story.

Then share it with a friend 🙂
