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.”

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

On this episode of the Get Healthy Alabama podcast we (Dr. George Burroughs and BetyLou Pierce) discuss the one health condition that serves as an incredible link between Cancer, Alzheimer’s, Diabetes and Heart Disease.


(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 🙂

Episode 47 – Rebounding From Depression: Suggestions For A Friend

On this episode of the Get Healthy Alabama podcast we (Dr. George Burroughs and BetyLou Pierce) discuss the exact advice we would give to a friend who was trying to transform their life from depressed and unhealthy... to happy and healthy


(May take a few seconds to begin playing)


Episode 47 - Rebounding From Depression: Suggestions For A Friend
 
"Sometimes the difference between being depressed and being suicidal is simply hearing from people who care."

A friend recently posted that on Facebook.

He's been through a lot the past few years and it's taken its toll.

Fortunately, he has people in his life who care deeply for him... family and friends who are helping carry him through the tough times.

I'm proud that he counts me as one of those friends.

However, to be honest, all I've done is provide the occasional "words of encouragement" and, while I know they are important, I keep asking myself, "what more can I do?"

The answer is actually quite simple:

I need to help my friend the best "I" can.

That is, I need to offer to help him improve his OVERALL health because I know how to do that. Plus, I firmly believe it would do wonders for him both physically AND mentally.

So, on this episode that's exactly what I do. 

With the help of BetyLou Pierce, I share the three things I would suggest to my friend to boost his overall health.

Something Physical, something Nutritional, and something Emotional.

"Natural" suggestions that I feel would help bring him, or ANYONE who applies them, to a better place with regard to his physical AND mental health.

Give this episode a good listen and share it with a friend who may need to hear it.

Also...

NOTE - As you listen to this episode, please remember that these recommendations are specific to this one individual. They are NOT a prescription for overcoming depression or any health condition. Please consult your health care provider for all medical care. Also, if you experience depression and/or suicidal thoughts, seek out a mental health care provider immediately.

(May take a few seconds to begin playing)


Episode 46 - The Christmas Episode!


Without a doubt, Christmas IS the most wonderful time of the year!
 
The music… the decorations… the kindness in people’s hearts.
 
All of these make the season magical.
 
However, there's ONE thing that makes it miraculous:
 
The birth of Jesus Christ.
 
Without Him there is no Christmas.
 
On this week’s episode of the Get Healthy Alabama podcast we talk about the true meaning of Christmas and the positive impact it has on our health.
 
We discuss how Christmas serves as a reminder that we are NOT “physical beings” having spiritual experiences… 
 
We are “spiritual beings” having a physical experience.
 
Once we understand this truth - that our true essence is spiritual, not physical - we can appreciate the impact that the birth, life, death and resurrection of Jesus has on our life... and how this impact opens the door to true healing.
 
On this episode we also explore…
 
- The key to being happy and healthy.
 
- The difference between giving and exchanging.
 
- How your connection to God will get through the ups and downs of life.
 
- How God is not mad at you… He’s mad about you.
 
Give this episode a good listen as it will reach down to the very core of your existence.
 
Also, allow yourself the opportunity to receive the greatest gift of all this Christmas…
 
Eternal life through the acceptance of Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior.
 
It's the BEST gift ever!
 
Merry Christmas!

Episode 45 – The Vaccine Alternative

On this episode of the Get Healthy Alabama podcast we (Dr. George Burroughs and BetyLou Pierce) explore a few simple alternatives to the Covid-19 Vaccine


(May take a few seconds to begin playing)


Episode 45 - The Vaccine Alternative


The Coronavirus is no joke.
 
It kills people AND it spreads easily.
 
To make matters worse, as we come to the end of 2020 it hasn’t slowed down.
 
Ugh!!!
 
What should we do?
 
Government and health officials have placed their confidence in a Covid-19 vaccine… a vaccine that raises two important questions:
 
Is it effective?
 
Is it safe?
 
Great questions… with not-so-great answers.
 
(Answers that were discussed in depth in episodes 43 and 44 of the Get Healthy Alabama podcast.)
 
The uncertainty of the vaccine has left people confused… wondering whether they should, or shouldn’t, get it.
 
In fact, many people have expressed a desire for an alternative.
 
Something with less uncertainty.
 
Something more natural... that can work WITH the innate defense systems of the body.
 
Good news: we have that "something" for you.
 
And it's not just one "thing" but four.
 
Specifically, on this week's episode of the Get Healthy Alabama podcast BetyLou and I share four simple, natural and FREE alternatives to the Covid-19 vaccine.
 
Yes, I said simple… natural… and FREE!
 
Alternatives ANYONE can apply to their life.
 
Alternatives we believe will provide you with incredible protection from Covid-19.
 
What are they?
 
You have to listen to the episode to find out.
 
But, don't worry... here's something I will share with you right now:
 
Our top supplements for preventing the Coronavirus.
 
Supplements that can not only strengthen your Immune System but, in our opinion, will provide better protection for avoiding the Coronavirus than the vaccine.
 
These supplements are:
 
Vitamin C
 
Vitamin D
 
Zinc
 
We talk about these on this episode and, as a bonus, BetyLou shares her top herbs and essential oils for boosting Immunity.
 
Give this episode a good listen… and then share it with a friend.

Episode 44 – Is The Covid-19 Vaccine Safe?

On this episode of the Get Healthy Alabama podcast we (Dr. George Burroughs and BetyLou Pierce) dive into the number one question people have regarding the Coronavirus: Is it safe?


(May take a few seconds to begin playing)


Episode 44 - Is The Covid-19 Vaccine Safe?


People tend to have two questions regarding the Covid-19 vaccine:

1) Is it effective?

2) Is it safe?

On last week’s episode (#43) we discussed the effectiveness of the vaccine.

Specifically, we shared how, during the Covid-19 vaccine trial conducted by the manufacturer, Pfizer, it was discovered that…

Although the Vaccine was shown to be 95% effective… the risk of getting the Coronavirus was extremely low in both the Vaccine group (99.9% did not get it) AND in the Non-Vaccine group (99.3% did not get it).

As a result, the question most people want answered becomes:

Is it worth receiving a Vaccine to improve your risk of not getting the Coronavirus from 99.3% to 99.9%?

The answer is…

Who knows???

All anyone can do is try to make the best decision they can based upon the information they have.

And that is what this episode is about… providing information.

Specifically, we discuss…

- The TRUE effectiveness of the Vaccine

- The lack of study regarding its long term side effects

- Why the Vaccine demonstrated NO benefit regarding preventing death (NONE!)

- Why the Vaccine demonstrated NO benefit for those age 85 and older... despite the fact that they are the group that has been hardest hit by the Coronavirus

- The complete removal of liability for the Vaccine manufacturer

- The incredible “high maintenance” involved with caring for the Vaccine

- The amount of taxpayers money already given to Vaccine manufacturers

And, perhaps most important… because of the potential severity combined with the lack of media attention:

- The potential for “Antibody Enhanced Disease” and…

- The Vaccine’s inability to prevent the Coronavirus from being spread.

This last one is huge as it will significantly diminish the Vaccine’s value as it can prevent the attainment of “herd immunity.”

Episode 43 – The Covid-19 Vaccine: Everything You Need To Know

On this episode of the Get Healthy Alabama podcast we (Dr. George Burroughs and BetyLou Pierce) share everything you need to know about the Covid-19 vaccine… what it is, what the research results REALLY say, and who should be most concerned.


(May take a few seconds to begin playing)


Episode 43 - The Covid-19 Vaccine: Everything You Need To Know


Today is Wednesday, December 2, 2020… which means that in slightly over a week, the United States should have a Covid-19 vaccine available (in limited supply).

The vaccine, manufactured by Pfizer was shown to be 95% effective according to a clinical study.

But, what exactly does “95% effective” mean?

If you’re like most people, you think it means that 95% of the people who get the vaccine won’t get the Coronavirus.

Believe it or not, you’d be wrong as the results were actually better!

Let me explain:

Nearly 44,000 people participated in the study conducted by Pfizer. Half of them received the vaccine while the other half didn't.

Amazingly, 99.3% of the approximately 22,000 individuals who got the vaccine avoided getting the virus.

That’s significantly higher than the 95% you see in the headlines.

And, to add to the good news, none of the individuals in the group died from the Coronavirus.

That’s awesome!

However, there is one problem:

Those numbers weren't for the vaccine group.

They were for the NON-VACCINE group.

Huh?

Yes, 99.3% of the group that DIDN’T receive the Covid-19 vaccine did NOT get the Coronavirus.

Nor did any of them die.

So, why did Pfizer claim 95% effectiveness for the vaccine?

The answer is explained in this week's episode of the Get Healthy Alabama podcast.

One more thing:

Guess how effective the Covid-19 vaccine was shown to be for preventing deaths?

90%…. 70%… 50%… 10%????

Would you believe that the answer is ZERO!

That is, the Covid-19 vaccine showed NO effectiveness at preventing deaths from the Coronavirus.

Hear the story behind this amazing fact.
