Episode 23:51 Viruses and Bacteria: What You Need To Know And WHY You Need To Know It

On this episode of the Get Healthy Alabama podcast we (Dr. George Burroughs and BetyLou Pierce) talk about what you need to know… and WHY you need to know it… when it comes to viruses and bacteria.


(May take a few seconds to begin playing)


Episode 23:51 Viruses and Bacteria: What You Need To Know And WHY You Need To Know It

What’s the difference between viruses and bacteria?

There are several answers.

One is that bacteria are “living” organisms.

Viruses are not.

Another is that bacteria reproduce… viruses do not.

They replicate.

And because viruses replicate, they need a “host”… an entity they can attach to and use as a “copy machine.”

Interestingly…

WE are that copy machine!

WE are the “host” that viruses use to replicate themselves.

On this episode we talk about these and other differences between viruses and bacteria.

Specifically, we discuss what these differences mean when it comes to your health and...

What they mean when it comes to preventing and treating infections.

The information we share is both fascinating and informative.

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

Thanks!

Episode 23:50 The Forgotten Factor Of Health

On this episode of the Get Healthy Alabama podcast we (Dr. George Burroughs and BetyLou Pierce) talk about the most overlooked component of health.


(May take a few seconds to begin playing)


Episode 23:50 The Forgotten Factor Of Health

Ask anyone what it takes to be healthy and you’ll probably hear the following response:

Exercise and eat right!

That’s certainly a good answer, but it’s incomplete.

Incomplete because there is MORE to being healthy than just diet and exercise.

Specifically, there are Mental and Emotional factors that play a huge role in determining one’s level of health.

On this episode we share four real-life stories from the previous two weeks… stories that provide insight into the role of mental and emotional factors on health.

Factors that have nothing to do with exercising and eating right.

Give this episode a good listen as it may provide the piece that’s been missing in your health quest.

And, as always, please share it with a friend.

Thanks!

(May take a few seconds to begin playing)


Episode 23:47 Want To Be Healthier? Give Thanks EVERY Day

What if EVERY day was Thanksgiving?

Would we all be healthier?

Of course, we would.

We’d sleep better… fight off colds better… digest our foods better… and feel better!

On this episode we talk about the powerful impact of “giving thanks.”

Specifically, we discuss simple ways to incorporate an “attitude of gratitude” into our daily lives.

Give this episode a good listen.

Actually, THANK YOU for giving this episode a good listen.

And, thank you for sharing it with a friend.

Episode 23:46 A Natural Approach For Balancing Hormones

Symptoms are messages from your body that something is wrong.

That something is “off.”

The key to healing, TRUE healing, is to identify and correct whatever is CAUSING the symptoms.

To identify and correct whatever is “off.”

In this episode we take the lessons of the past two episodes and apply them to a person suffering with the symptoms of a Hormone Imbalance.

Specifically, we address…

1) What CAUSES a Hormone Imbalance.

2) What can be done, naturally, to CORRECT it.

Give this episode a good listen as it will help change the way you look at Hormone Imbalances... AND it will give you suggestions for correcting them.

Also, be sure to share this episode with a friend.

Thanks!

Episode 23:44 Seven Messages Your Body Is Sending You Regarding Your Health

On this episode of the Get Healthy Alabama podcast we (Dr. George Burroughs and BetyLou Pierce) talk about seven messages your body is constantly sending you regarding your health.


(May take a few seconds to begin playing)


Episode 23:44 Seven Messages Your Body Is Constantly Sending You Regarding Your Health

We live in a hi-tech world.

A world filled with gadgets and gizmos… all created to make life easier and better.

This is especially true with regard to health care.

Technological advances have given us diagnostic and treatment tools that were only dreamed about in the past.

However, despite all of the “new and improved” tools doctors have at their disposal the truth is that most people’s health is getting worse, not better.

For this reason, perhaps it’s time that we, as a nation, made a change… a change that involves going back to some basic fundamentals.

Specifically, when it comes to our health, we should start relying more on the messages our bodies are telling us than on the feedback we get from expensive, hi-tech machines.

In this episode we discuss seven "old school" messages our bodies are constantly telling us.

- Messages about our heath.

- Messages that are extremely inexpensive and easy to understand.

- Messages that warn us when something is wrong.

Get each of these messages “right” and you will almost certainly be healthy.

Get any of these messages “wrong” and your health will be heading towards a downwards spiral.

It’s that simple.

Give this episode a good listen and LEARN THE SEVEN MESSAGES as they will give you a tremendous insight into your current, and future, health status.

And, as always, be sure to recommend this episode to a friend.

Thanks!

Episode 23:43 The Interesting Role Vitamin D Plays In Low Testosterone Levels, Infertility, Osteoporosis, Restless Leg Syndrome, Itchy Skin, Hives, And Canker Sores

On this episode of the Get Healthy Alabama podcast we (Dr. George Burroughs and BetyLou Pierce) talk about the interesting role Vitamin D plays in low testosterone levels, infertility, osteoporosis, restless leg syndrome, itchy skin, hives, and canker sores.


(May take a few seconds to begin playing)


Episode 23:43 The Interesting Role Vitamin D Plays In Low Testosterone Levels, Infertility, Osteoporosis, Restless Leg Syndrome, Itchy Skin, Hives, And Canker Sores

On the last episode of the Get Healthy Alabama podcast we talked about the role sunshine and Vitamin D play in helping you look better, feel better, lower your cholesterol levels and boost your immunity.

On this episode we take that conversation a step further.

Specifically we discuss how increasing Vitamin D levels can improve fertility in women… and testosterone levels in men.

We also share how Vitamin D works with other vitamins and minerals… most notably Vitamin F (yes, there IS a vitamin F, it’s just not recognized by the FDA) and Calcium.

We then explain how imbalances among Vitamin D, Vitamin F and Calcium levels can result in conditions as diverse as osteoporosis, “leathery” skin, extreme itching, hives, welts, canker sores, and restless legs.

The physiology behind the interplay of these nutrients is fascinating and easy to understand.

Give this episode a good listen and you’ll know what to do to prevent and/or treat those conditions.

As always, please recommend this episode to a friend.

Thanks!
