Doctor Lindsay welcome back to the wellness connection. Well so good to be back with you we had dinner the other evening and we have a lot of hot week I think we pocket outlook. Or Halliburton we we sure do we do it last. Three people who are radio personalities together and it could go oh and. I thought actually I -- Well it was great fun and I hope we can do that again doctor Lindsay you said your mission today on the wellness connection was to be a myth buster from hormones to fiber. So let's start with hormones what are some prevailing myths surrounding hormones and how would you best -- or bust dismissed. The goat but I don't -- that's really great and that might back. -- Hormone all of the while and on your mind to see the parents well her smile when I was at the 8:4 -- the American he's anti aging parent in this summer in Orlando. Not -- and and that would mean to one of the speaker on hormone replacement. And they were saying the party line it would have been a much machine that they were saying if you had a history of cancer you pardon her after a candidate for hormone replacement being caught in the non college you may get too high risk. Women accused mr. had breast cancer your mom or even if you had a lot of the hoosiers had endometriosis. And other -- dependent illnesses. There isn't. Huge shift that has been happening that it hasn't made its way into the association that download information the clinicians should go to day and -- candidate copper HRP. You might breast cancer fifteen years ago or maybe even I'm battling it now well I didn't talking in bringing about an end product that the body metabolize this. Hormone all day long so we make in the week we make an -- end. And we break and then get rid of them so we don't become a huge hormone blocking sandwich back breaking them down into the have a life in the final. Good aggregation arm tackle by a factor again which had interestingly enough estrogen in nickname because it came rob. The parent molecule -- I'll. Go to the nickname is to let me and if the whole name the two -- -- after diet it came from estrogen. But the literature for the last ten years had been strongly saying. This acted the body's protective mechanism that mr. Specter cannot issues -- it happens we -- bio accumulate. It prevent the growth of cancer out of control it. Stop cancer are immortal they don't do what we call eight -- code could it prevent cancer cells from driving -- not I'm. It prevent the fuel and food going to camp to show which is called -- -- that the it prevent that it is an anti collaborator. So that's what you don't like you we make how do we make -- you -- cancer that -- grow out of control in the UT TBD. The light of actors and content that. Having patient order added to their HR can you're taking it separately I was just for the conference with doctor Jonathan Wright when a woman in the -- -- -- -- -- Can't hear you now hit three milligram. This to red knee which many on how different they heard this would go because they think we're getting urgent the patient we don't know now. It only had record in a nickname because -- -- originally. Came from act again so there's ways of treating women to help and I -- owner -- help of our work -- talked with the compound pharmacist and they have a very well just recently an article came out hormones and cancer which is the major. Peer reviewed journal and it said we used to think -- little itty -- finally get irrigation product in the cap -- the -- kitchen with kind of a give me a lot to gut it had them get to it. But now we're seeing and they look at it. It can't -- -- in the general anti Ahmadinejad against -- liquidity into India jet touched it with it -- anti estrogen -- protect can shoot again accept. Estrogen signaling. Don't think dead. The literature it very clear that this -- like the new -- around. We're gonna be looking at this for the treatment and funny an appetite of eight patient I put on the the one of the conditions with my medical team. And we're awaiting that. -- get help. It now being used IP. Edged forward thinking -- -- if you actor got it would need to know with a lot of it now being used to treat. Creek -- yeah infertility. Endometriosis and -- a -- relating -- -- surgery which usually every current. -- surgical intervention any way then the final big big big deal it is being used to treat cancer. -- -- second so so that we don't get too far out there without. A -- So I understand it is my understanding meant that went so went estrogen metabolize is it metabolize is -- that to hydroxy restaurant you are talking about something different are you not. It still hyped rock me actor -- I'll go to step further. It goes down to two Mac oxy. So are you don't pan -- are you talking about to actually. Formulating. That -- foxy as an HR TT. Now quarter it as an eight Turkey you know. Healthy body will make a lot of this on its own right but. Most likely -- -- genetic how -- market and the people who are prone to cancer that you don't make it should have been in the estrogen only arm of the Women's Health Initiative when it didn't re a lot yet not yet now and you can only are the younger women who are still have a lot better at 33%. Less cancer and one of the puck hit they'd made to. They pay more to me you know I think the explosion that they got its replacement because. Apparently we make a lot more to let me heal adequately placed hormone replacement action. And many back because the different issues or food or tactics ever make out of our own -- So now of course and we need to differentiate here. Fists to any all this -- is extremely. Different than say V sixteen hydroxy gesture on the comes from -- urine or primary and or the other synthetic estrogen replacements. -- good point you're bringing them -- you think you could get -- the -- -- either bio identical just like you get -- you dial bio mechanical more you can get into synthetic and then doctor Jonathan -- -- night outside here to -- we're trying to make a bio identical hormone patents -- -- -- -- -- -- all women would have been available because politically aged beyond Chester protection and we couldn't get back. Time get the patent because another big pharma company -- getting a patent on that synthetic. Analog version of this Connecticut the drug to treat breast cancer. And they made it true state one that you see H trial and then because it was synthetic not exactly what you're saying bio identical women didn't Holloway did so well but you can get it -- -- -- -- exact and molecule of Iowa identical -- and the old molecules I've been on myself -- or five years.

And welcome back to the wellness connection and are continuing interview with myth buster doctor Lindsay Bernsen. And and you certainly do you have your myth buster had gone and -- are are taking aim at some prevalent myths. How wanna jump in here for just a second doctor Lindsay you know speaking as a male. I have a question that I'm sure some of the male listeners and our audience I would like to have answered in this to end the whole. Hormone. Is this useful for males who were dealing with cancer. Actor really great question and and back position and -- are just -- to use this book and -- know that the jet activity. And then back. Many hormone that we use to think of the cabinet. Like project around there are a seventeen -- Head trauma studies going on. And there they know that projector and protect the brain and they've noticed that women who have had trauma. In the middle of the -- -- -- make -- just trying to collect complication than. He'll actor who brain injury and other giving I would be bio identical pro jet around which we think of the the -- are well. Two boys and girls and men and women of -- -- she. After head trauma on some doctors are using a little bit of that straight -- increase among men and women got the secret pact to get cancer. Some doctors are giving a tiny bit not that they may not get to a woman. But -- hundred a project drunken men who actually -- -- because it quiet the brain that night. So we're going to you revolution. In the application of hormone replacement very different from the old just give estrogen -- estrogen patch for a woman with hot laps in which it can really cutting edge. A lot of neurologists are using. Hormone along with it I'd be certain. Low inflammatory diet should reverse. Dementia and rain quote brain quote I'm by your actual men can take -- male -- This hormone no longer had any email -- to it and many have estrogen in their body and they should be making. Antonio -- and probably man. Is more susceptible genetically or the chance there beside. Tumor suppressor gene -- -- had to -- production defects so. You -- great question and we're going to. So I -- questioned so. For women who have had breast cancer in the past. And they're going through man upon us and they do want. Do you want some relief of some other menopausal symptoms. -- what do you recommend. Do you recommend bio identical hormone server or what do you recommend for that. Well you know I had breast cancer twenty years ago I did not my mother with. My mother was given the most powerful actor Janet pharmaceutical. That was given to tighten -- my -- for over thirty years to millions of women bridge and an epidemiological. Study out of Gartner. I'm Linda hi this to wrote a forward from my book -- -- -- Smart women with able to show that. Fetus could that -- -- to -- -- actually very patient data and very colorful and look. Had an almost 90%. Risk of getting breast cancer in men and particularly at the age I got to wipe -- twenty years ago. And -- I think -- -- Bio identical hormone replacement strategically individualized. Which I feel and there's no guarantee like that I feel that we do with my list. And we current and -- in actual money elsewhere. Almost five years. And that knowing what I know now I wish I would have -- -- it earlier what was first diagnosed it's not regular rate charged that you're taking hormone replacement therapy. But strategic we're. -- when you take them both together. Well I I'm in there. I'm really helped -- form in my opinion after spending the extra decade. Of the application that they church -- to cycle hormones can mimic mother nature. As much as possible but after dial it cycle projector on this cycle but to let me I would not a doctor is not. But I take my hormones. Column my mentor doctor Jonathan Wright who just European trip to -- -- a new book launching called it hormones which is believed by. Updated the old in -- that he has been out yesterday. And he was talking about how. You know the real -- future look at your how carcinogenic or jerk anti hurt an -- -- have a life. And can strategize and individual I think -- to a level. The way beyond what most most haven't been handing out -- Turkey scripture and hear. They just it's just come back in vogue and a lot of doctors don't know the information. I just interviewed. A very lovely gentleman with a big player PL -- doctor Stephen Goldstein and he asked. Invented the term caring medical. And he created this standard ultrasound evaluation. Of the line of tutors yet to be chain teaching web and -- I asked -- his thoughts on to a mile and a few other. After -- I won't get into those -- let me now he'd he'd never heard that. Should because this isn't the scientific ground and it -- making -- toe in the water hopefully helping to do that. And the critical round because and there are a lot more powerful tool. The -- the next half of our life in the paper weight and lose out on Sunday Turkey even if we had. Hormone dependent on the finish. So -- -- -- or just over two minutes until we have a great and death. I'd like to I'd like to know who what other hormones do you see. That. Myths surround and that need to be -- -- every didn't have time to talk about but the but -- government or we get to focus on this I know how much unless you get my lord. Well we're we're gonna we're gonna touch on fiber during the next section but that. Okay. So there is for just pluralism missed a good. Amount. Get slumped in the position desk reference to project in which is a synthetic version with project around -- -- -- doctors. I've even had a doctor tell patient -- someone told me to take progesterone and he -- up there but but if you're an asthmatic version right. And they -- and say if you don't have the uterus you don't need it exactly -- time. But that completely wrong mate in the brain and treatment apocalypse and a good HR he would try to mimic what green not a popular youthful. Woman on mandate we -- -- intervention the seventeen. Could centered study that it protects the brain what many women are can't sleep they get anxious when they go -- and get life and -- -- Iraq and how I and I'd be mad and Tommy mad -- -- struggling with this if you give. Go right dosage and get -- -- right. Formed in the have a light in the liver that right. -- natural ambient and you sleep like a baby and you don't I think I mean you don't need to take. Pharmaceutical medication took all of those won't see -- side effect and you protect your nerve with them. They're urologists now who feel that -- works along with Biden and Kia which by the way -- -- How up regulate the doctor by the indeed they all work together. Just protect our line in Europe with them compartment -- kidneys and multiple well at that age going to be interesting that the cutting edge out a bar. Practitioners know we all need not just if we -- uterine. That's old information than. A woman goes after doctor after hearing on the radio like this when she's 80%. Of the current app to get the wrong info because they can go after it made it down.

It's important to note that any diagnosis of disease can only be provided by your medical doctor or other licensed health care professional. None of the information we present is intended for the diagnosis or treatment of disease. So Marvin from lake where I ask how I know if I need dietary supplements in if I'm deficient in a particular nutrient join need to take it for the rest of my life. Well that's a very good question Marvin and there's a lot of ways you can start to find out what your supplement needs are. But first I would suggest start with taking the white goes score. A white the score is like a fight can score for wellness. It's it it it says numerical expression based on a statistical analysis of a person's health markers. To indicate the general health index of that person. The white total Weickel advance online questionnaire features fifteen key markers and uses mathematics and statistical analysis that establishes. You worst scientific health index to identify unhealthy conditions. Assist in pinpointing nutritional deficiencies. And help identify disease conditions. There are providing base level health marker analytics for patients consultations. Yeah that's true and I was gonna say that they don't like -- as she usually. A 75 dollar value which you can go to Martin's compound in wellness dot com. And sign up as a VIP member at no cost and pitcher like -- score for free. Now if you wish to go further and I suggest that everybody at least once a year does a blood nutrition assessment. That's right a regular blood test can reveal significant information which can be used to guide are trained health practitioner. To plan an effective wellness program for your precise meats fish is known as science based nutrition. Which is guided by your own blood test. And is the new standard for developing a comprehensive and personalized health and wellness program what you do not need is to overload your system with inappropriate or unnecessary nutrients which can result in unwanted complications so what is -- nutrition. Well first what his blood chemistry it. Usually done every year at an annual fell out physical your doctor generally uses a blood test to look at cholesterol -- bits thyroid liver and kidney.

Cancer specialist and a -- version ski and Emanuel review HE and other of the country's leading cutting edge health care professionals. Welcome back to the wellness connection -- Well thank you put -- revenue back. Great Rick you know for many years you've been the lead attorney defending pioneer cancer doctor Stanislaw version -- against the predation -- the FDA. And the Texas medical board what's the latest on doctor version -- Well the FDA is so basically -- And checked he's cooperative with the FDA command he's been given permission to restore clinical trials about -- good. The -- Texas medical board go we're deeply involved in litigation with them both doctor Brzezinski and all the doctors say this clinic and go. File this 200 page to 202 page complaint against him recently. And though we actually just kind of pre hearing conference call last week and go home. We're moving to dismiss all of the FDA charges. So I think that's so you know we're trying to would not not to help. Piece by piece is much of these complaints we cancel the first step is to mark felt the fifty pages. Well the FDA charges for a -- are right now. While okay do you see anything out coming down the line further as far as that goes that. There are the FDA or the TMB -- who concoct other. Charges do you think I know they've done many times before. Well yeah I think -- I think the word of 58 PMP is state followed many complain. That they can against presents to so they just all the complaints. You -- patience -- -- clinical trial and then you know people are clinical trials that are given these people are getting getting new experimental drug. -- pursuant to FDA approval and there's still -- complaints against them so I think go. It I mean I think they've decided well every dime they find out that he treats -- patients. -- -- there at the medical board itself is gonna -- complex and preserved in regard to the outrageous but that's what type of. But just unbelievable you know Rick we also understand your engage with the Texas medical board to get them to provide some guidance for Texas cam practitioners. Unacceptable advertising content or can you tell us more about the. Yes so lately what's happening as many cam practitioners in Texas are being hit quit poem. Complaints. I think bought generated in part by does Stephen Barrett offer false advertisement. All so even though the law protects Texas talks. -- giving cam treatments called the advertising rules are much murkier. So that's the new tactic by the board and by the quack -- to go after these stocks or talking about. All treatment they could give but. You know they don't like what's being said about about the latest and I'm trying to do is get approved some kind of look disclaimer. Ought to be effective what the camp practices and there's a lot and it may not be. Proven by a adequate controlled clinical studies to satisfy mainstream medicine. And my hope is that a fighter I have a couple of cases now ought to put get a couple more important -- this disclaimer approved federal -- Sort of various safe harbor for practitioners. About what they -- on the web site. Well that would certainly help out a lot as she I know you know what we've talked about it before it was in 2012 that. The Texas medical board filed over 3200. Complaints. How many of which were. Addressed to exactly that issue and most of war against unlicensed nurse practitioners. And you know having those guidelines I think would would certainly help. What do you think the likelihood is that they're gonna going to be willing to two to really -- define what those guidelines are. Well you know it's interesting you mention it to look just had a talk with both these guys. But the board but a couple weeks ago and I think for unlicensed practitioners. Especially not prepared to I think that that they have a model guideline employers say they're about to. I think -- home. In that it should come up a lot with people like yourself or gore have there -- -- some kind of training and consider yourself. Some kind of practitioner of -- all of the traditional -- put up or whatnot. So they've done a couple cases recently where they have a disclaimer which shows look I'm not a licensed medical practitioner what I'm doing is not diagnosing or treating the disease. But I'm giving other you know health care information. And you know the patient recognizes that so I think. That's kind of been in place and I think -- going to have that disclaimer you should be all right in terms of the unlicensed practice proposal. As some kind of like what they're doing California which I know you're aware of because from our help -- -- bit. Bryant the Algerian you know you've also floated an intriguing idea to further restrict the power of the Texas medical board with respect to levying sanctions. Or. What you have in mind. Well it's just historically what happens is. Many states. The medical board makes the final decision even if you go before administrative law judge. The judge issues what's called a proposal for decision. And then that's either accepted or rejected by the medical board and they have a lot of discretion. In 2012 that was changed I think in part because -- -- abused by the board. And what happened 2012 as the medical -- lost the ability to make findings of fact -- conclusions of law. Or at least they couldn't change the findings or conclusions by the judge. And the order of the board's only remedy was to go to state district court. So -- but in the mental pick the next and final step which is make the board the prosecutor. Make -- judge make that decision. And that clip of the board doesn't like it. They can go to state court because especially with regard to a -- and I compliment ducks a ball the battle these are just. You know outrageous and I think even the conventional -- would think that the penalties. Look at by the border are are unfair. I think it's time to just make. The board what it really is there the prosecutor and they need a new coal. Dispassionate judge to make that decision not only guess that the findings of fact and conclusions of law. But also to the sanctions. Now hoping that someone war has proposed that -- in the next legislative session. Do you have anybody in mind. I know a couple people might supported but you know maybe this is this where you guys comment. Well that's exactly right you know and and and we really do appreciate all the work that you do here in Texas that despite the fact that you. You -- deserted us to go live in California. And I you know I -- a good job -- as you move from right to UC Davis and see it now that we're what we're -- retro. I'm. So sorry did I actually -- to our decision yes ma'am. Oh there he liked California very this I want telephone and it's -- we're really happy. Well I'm either treat -- like spent half my diamond texas'.
