Women who have been told repeatedly to "get your mammogram" may have been misled.For decades, women have been advised to "get your mammogram" as an early detection approach. According to Dr. Nyjon Eccles, women have been misled. Based on research, Dr. Eccles states that mammography screening doesn't lead to survival advantage. He cites research results that show for every 2,000 women who are screened over 10 years, one life will be saved, 10 women will receive unnecessary treatment, and 200 women will receive false positive results.

Cancers generate heat because they are highly metabolic and cause increased blood circulation. The screening tool does not involve compression of the breasts, nor does it use radiation. It is able to pick up on potential cancer before it can be seen, structurally, by a mammogram. Another benefit is that thermography screening isn't impeded by dense breast tissue, and therefore can be used in younger women who may have a family history or genetic risk. While mammography may produce false positives, Dr. Eccles has seen thermography result in 90-95% accuracy. He does caution, however, that thermography shouldn't be used as a diagnostic tool; rather, its focus should be screening and early detection. Just because heat is detected, doesn't mean it's cancer -- it could be an inflammatory response. That said, any chronic or persistent inflammatory issues should also be followed up with additional diagnostic investigation. Listen as Dr. Eccles joins Dr. Taz to discuss more about why thermography is a better option to mammography, as well as his development of ThermoCheck®, a computer-assisted Breast Thermography system.

Learn how to treat neurological, behavioral and developmental disorders like PTSD, anxiety, autism spectrum disorder, ADHD and dyslexia without pharmaceuticals.Neurological, behavioral and developmental disorders like PTSD, anxiety, autism spectrum disorder, ADHD, dyslexia, TBI, and Parkinson’s are most often treated with pharmaceuticals. But, that isn’t always an appropriate or sustainable option, especially for children. Carol Garner-Houston, co-founder and Chief Medical Officer of Brain Harmony, has created a non-pharmaceutical treatment option that can start to take effect in just five days. Neuroplastic tools such as bone conduction and sound frequency can be used to make changes in the brain. Her bottom-up approach uses audio frequencies to pinpoint different parts of brain, stimulate them, and build connections to improve cognitive functions. Listen as Carol joins Dr. Taz to discuss how brain functions can be improved through telemedicine.

Advance your career and find balance with visualization techniques.In today’s world, women are more empowered to take ownership over their careers by becoming their own boss or getting access to the resources they need to be successful at a company. However, there’s still a lot of work to be done. For the women who climb the corporate ladder and take on more responsibilities in the workplace, they're trying to give 100% at home and at work, which leaves them feeling stretched and overwhelmed. Joan Kuhl, founder of Why Millennials Matter, author, speaker and champion of women in leadership, shares tips and visualization techniques women can use to find balance and succeed in all areas of their life. She helps women identify gender bias in the office and arms them with tools to remove it. Listen as Kuhl joins Dr. Taz to discuss how women can build the career—and life—they deserve.
Lose weight and eliminate dangerous liver fat in just 28 days.If you notice a change in your body composition and are gaining weight where you don’t want it, you could be undergoing a metabolic change. And, that change might be caused by your liver. Even those who don’t formally have fatty liver disease may be heading towards it or have markers for it. If you have changes in your energy, weight, and appetite, you may be at risk for fatty liver disease. Dr. Alan Christianson created the Metabolism Reset Diet, which is intended to reverse damage to the liver and eliminate the most dangerous fat in your body in just four weeks. Depending on the amount of weight you want to lose, the cycle can be repeated as many times as you’d like. The result is weight loss, fewer food cravings, steady energy levels, and a metabolism that functions well. Listen as Dr. Christianson joins Dr. Taz to discuss the relationship between your liver and your metabolism, as well as a diet that will help you lose weight and get healthy fast.
Learn how to reframe your anxiety and take control of your life.Today, there are so many opportunities for anxiety to enter a woman’s life. Whether it’s anxiety around her social life, her job, our current political climate, or keeping up with the rising cost of commodities, there’s no shortage of ways for a person to be stressed. Layer on the fact that many women are essentially working two full-time jobs—one at the office and one at home—and you have a recipe for chronic anxiety. Dr. Robert T. London is a well-known psychiatrist, educator, and writer who has come up with a form of short-term therapy that helps women deal with anxiety. His spin on cognitive behavior therapy, LPA, focuses on allowing a person to get a different perspective on the problem. He combines that with relaxation therapy to help women take back their lives. Listen as Dr. Robert T. London joins Dr. Taz to discuss how women can overcome anxiety and PTSD.
Learn how these eight biomarkers can affect overall health and longevity.In the medical community, most resources go towards treating people who are already sick. However, it’s also important to treat people who are well to ensure they’re making the right lifestyle choices, so they don’t become sick. Much of this school of thought centers around epigenetics. Epigenetics, at its simplest, is the study of biological mechanisms that switch genes on and off. What you eat, drink, think and do—or don’t do—can cause chemical modifications around the genes that will turn those genes on or off over time, determining your short- and long-term quality of survival. There are eight predictive biomarkers in particular that are indicators for lifetime health. They are: High sensitivity Hemoglobin A1c: Measure of efficiency of sugar/insulin/energy conversion High sensitivity C-Reactive Protein: Repair and inflammation immune status High sensitivity Homocysteine: Methylation, Detox, Cardio Risk Test for immune memory/immune response to up to 491 items Assess mineral need and cell acid/alkaline balance Vitamin D level for cell communication status Oxidative stress and antioxidant status in cell envelope (membrane) 8-hydroxy-2′-deoxyguanosine (8OHdG): Oxidative stress and antioxidant status in cell nucleus Listen as Dr. Russell M. Jaffe joins Dr. Taz to discuss these eight indicators and how to make lifestyle choices that will improve health and longevity.

And, when they do find the time, they feel frustrated they’re not living up to what they should be doing in the kitchen. Nealy Fischer, founder of The Flexible Chef, encourages women to ditch perfection in the kitchen and focus on creating meals that fit within their lifestyle.

Dr. Jay Davidson breaks down the diagnosis and treatment of Lyme disease and other parasitic infections.Between the environment, electromagnetic radiation (EMR), and the constant stress people face every day, we are at a higher risk than ever before of suffering from chronic parasite infections. We’re constantly bombarded with energy from the 5G WiFi in our homes. Roughly 25 percent of buildings have mold in them, which suppresses the immune system. And, there are now more than 85,000 chemicals created by man, many of which haven’t been studied thoroughly. Dr. Jay Davidson discusses how these factors contribute to the risk of Lyme disease and other parasitic infections. He breaks down the symptoms, diagnosis and treatment of these diseases and shares his holistic approach to treatment. Listen as Dr. Davidson joins Dr. Taz to discuss protocols for treating parasitic infection.
Learn how to incorporate mindfulness into your diet plan so you'll keep weight off after your diet ends.There are a number of diets available that focus primarily on the foods you can or cannot eat, or the amount of food you should consume per meal. However, without mindfulness, many people remain unmotivated to continue eating well after their diet ends and ultimately regain any weight lost. Beth Warren, a dietician and “kosher girl,” relates her experience with dieting to her Jewish upbringing, noting that keeping kosher requires the same discipline as sticking to a diet plan. She explains how setting a daily intention and simply being cognizant of what you eat can make the difference between a successful or failed diet. Listen as Beth joins Dr. Taz to discuss her 21-day intuitive eating plan.
Learn how to achieve long-term health success by creating your own personalized health mix.When it comes to diets, exercise, and weight loss, consistency is key. The mediocre workout that you can do consistently do is far better than the “best” workout you’ll never do. But, with all of the diet and exercise regimens available on the internet, it’s almost impossible to navigate the health world without feeling overwhelmed or paralyzed by indecision. Kathleen Trotter helps clients create a “health mix” unique to their health history, goals, and life realities. She explains that no one diet, exercise, or mindfulness strategy works for everyone. Each individual has unique needs and enjoys different foods or types of exercise, and the only way to achieve long-term health success is to create your own personalized health mix. Listen as Kathleen Trotter joins Dr. Taz to discuss how to find your health mix.
In a world of fad diets, Carly Pollack shares permanent weight loss solutions.There are countless diets, cleanses, and 30-day challenges geared to help people lose weight, but very rarely are these solutions permanent. These fad diets tend to focus on the foods we should or shouldn’t put into our bodies rather than providing us with the mental tools necessary for making permanent changes. Nutrition expert Carly Pollack presents her unique understanding of body science, brain wiring, and spiritual principles to facilitate real, long-term change. She shares with listeners how to let go of negative self-talk and stress rather than trying to manage it. And, she reminds us that our plate is a reflection of our state. Listen as Carly Pollack joins Dr. Taz to discuss permanent weight loss solutions.
Dr. Michael Ruscio discusses how nutrition isn't the only component of gut health.Dr. Michael Ruscio knows the importance of gut health. His personal experience led him to study integrative medicine for his own treatment. Small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO) is a disorder caused by excessive bacteria in the small intestine. Symptoms can mirror IBS with constipation, bloating, diarrhea and abdominal pain. Indigestion, heartburn and acid reflux may also occur. Non-digestive symptoms include thyroid problems, anxiety, brain fog, skin conditions and metabolism. Forcing a restrictive diet will not correct an issue that is non-dietary. Active issues in the gut need to be addressed. Food intolerances are something you can control. Remove foods that produce an inflammatory immune reaction in your gut. Eliminate processed foods. You may have to limit foods that are rich in FODMAPs, short chain carbohydrates that are tough to digest. Not everyone can handle cruciferous vegetables like broccoli when there’s a bacterial overgrowth. Prebiotics in these foods can feed the bad bacteria until they’re handled. Much of the immune system and the process of inflammation takes place in the gut. Listen as Dr. Ruscio joins Dr. Taz to explain SIBO, FODMAPs, and how to improve your health by aiding your gut.
Dr. Becky Campbell shares how overall health influences thyroid function.Dr. Becky Campbell learned firsthand how important it is to heal the thyroid. Diagnosed with a hypothyroidism, she sought treatment from a functional medicine doctor as an alternative to medication. Dr. Campbell reminds that most immune disorders generate in the gut. The adrenals are close to the thyroid, affecting its health. Viruses also influence overall health. A holistic approach to thyroid issues is imperative for healing. Take steps to improve thyroid health. Stress reduction improves wellness. Make sure your diet supports gut health. Listen as Dr. Campbell joins Dr. Taz to give tips on how to aid thyroid health.
