Dr. Bradley Nelson explains why the best remedies for stress are all about kindness and simplicity.Stress puts our health at risk, damaging our body’s systems and contributing to irritability, anxiety, depression, headaches, insomnia, and a myriad of other diseases and ailments. But, people can disarm the harmful effects of stress naturally and holistically. Dr. Bradley Nelson offers these six tips for beating the stress of daily life. Control what is in you. Eat healthy, live whole foods. The shorter the time from tree to tasting, from ground to gourmet, the more positive energy you will receive. Control what is around you. Stay away from chronically toxic people and situations. Stay off of negative social media. Eliminate clutter, physical and spiritual. Clean lines and open spaces in your living area can provide calmness and serenity. Purge yourself of emotional clutter like trapped emotions. Literally “ground” yourself. This concept is also known as “earthing.” You know that great feeling you have after a day at the beach? That is about more than a day of relaxation. Standing or walking in bare feet in grass, sand, or even on a concrete surface that is immediately above the soil can rid your body of ever-so-damaging negative energy. Embrace joy. As they say, “laughter is the best medicine.” Share random hugs and smiles. Think about all you have to be grateful for and share that gratitude. Keep negative energy at bay with positive thoughts and acts. Slow down and love the little things. Humans have adopted the rat race as a way of life, and it need not be that way. There is nothing and no one more important than YOU. Make sure you have sufficient alone time and use it to enjoy what makes you content. A walk in the woods, smelling fresh-cut grass, watching children play, a day of reading... The possibilities are endless. Listen as Dr. Nelson joins Dr. Friedman to explain why the best remedies for stress are all about kindness and simplicity. He also shares information from his newly expanded and updated book, The Emotion Code.

James Chodosh, MD, MPH, joins Dr. Roizen to discuss the shingles virus, why it can be dangerous when manifesting in the eye, and how you can prevent it.Shingles is caused by the varicella-zoster virus, which first enters the body as chickenpox and never leaves.

According to research, these cases of shingles on the eye are on the rise.

There’s a dark side of the wine industry.The health benefits of wine seem to be endless. Research shows wine helps reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease, lowers cholesterol, reduces the risk of cancer and may even extend your lifespan. Having a glass or two of wine each day has even been recommended by the American Heart Association. But, unfortunately, there’s a dark side of the industry. Thanks to a lack of regulation on labeling, most wine sold in the U.S contains massive amounts of hidden colorants, pesticide residue, toxins and excessive sugar. To say these additives are unhealthy is an understatement. A recent analysis found 100% of all wines tested in California contained high levels of glyphosate, the main ingredient in Roundup, the cancer causing herbicide produced by Monsanto. Todd White, founder of Dry Farm Wines, joins Dr. Friedman to share the dirty truth about wine, from irrigation to fermentation. He’ll also discuss how you can choose healthy, organic wine so you get all the wonderful health benefits without any hidden chemical additives.
