Covid and The Genetic Connection
Dr. Clarke shares his thoughts of the effects that genetics has to do with the severity of COVID symptoms.
Vitamin K and Blood Thinners
We get a lot of questions about vitamin K2’s role in our supplement compounds and whether it negatively interacts with prescription blood thinners. Doc shares his experience and observations on why this particular form of K2 doesn’t appear to have a negative affect.
There are several forms of vitamin K. The K2 mk7 variety has been studied and shown to not have a significant effect on blood clotting.
What is Pregnenolone?
Here is a cursory overview on pregnenolone, and why I use it in my neuroregenerative protocol. I believe I can activate the Sigma-1 receptors on the stem cells to become certain cells by giving them the proper neurosteroids to differentiate into new neurons, glial cells, myelin, hippocampal cells for memory. This important “neurosteroid” is so vital for overall brain repair and regeneration.
Is Cholesterol Really Bad For You?
Cholesterol is considered a “bad” word in today’s medical community. However the science illustrates something quite different. Cholesterol is required for our bodies to produce the hormones, cells, sub-cellular organelles, and lipid rafts for communication. Not only that, but cholesterol along with neurosteroids, pregnenolone, DHEA, progesterone, testosterone, and estrogen stimulate the stem cells inherent in our bodies to become new brain cells. It is the very thing we need in order to heal our brains.
What is DHEA? and Why Is It So Important?
What is DHEA? This is a supplement banned in sports, but what does it really do? What happens when you don’t get enough of it? Can this simple supplement help families of those suffering from alzheimer’s and dementia? This vitamin can actually counteract the stress hormone cortisol, aid in improving memory, and several studies show that it can increase libido in both men and women!
The Neurologic Destructive Sequence
When brain damage occurs, whether it be sudden, like from a stroke or TBI, repetitive like boxing, or gradual from neurodegenerative diseases; the same sequence of events happen at the cellular level. There are three almost immediate and predictable phases that brain cells endure during this destructive process, and Brett and I will detail these in this video.
Hormones and Osteoporosis
What does it take to actually build solid, flexible bone and reverse osteoporosis? Dr. Clarke discusses what is involved with regrowing strong pliable bone, even when that person is of advanced age.
Rehabilitation For A Stroke Survivor Can’t Speak or Understand
A patient sustained a motor vehicle accident, then just as they were getting better, they had a stroke. I really have my work cut out for me to help this person regain their ability to speak and understand again. These cases are just so sad, and I really pray that I can make a difference in this person’s life.
Low Cortisol, Inflammation, and Immunity
It’s amazing what happens when one does not make enough cortisol. Too little cortisol is directly linked to Addison’s disease, where the body’s immune system begins to attack the body. This results in an increase in inflammation and constant pain and sickness. If you find that a patient’s cortisol levels are low, then it’s a simple fix.
Bone Loss, Osteoporosis, Osteopenia and Why Some Doctors Are Stuck In Dogma
When you give the body the building blocks for strong naturally created bone that is pliable, that’s exactly what you get. Effectively reversing bone density loss, Osteopenia, and Osteoporosis. What really gets me going, is when an endocrinologist is given the scans, tests, and all of the evidence for osteoporosis therapy, they still want to put the patient on a drug. It is the battle I fight daily in my practice trying to re-educate the doctors from their medical dogma.
