The two most overwhelming natural health discoveries are relatively recent.  Like most discoveries, science leads the way, and medicine lingers far behind. Do not be surprised that few physicians know about these discoveries and how they can change your health.

GLYCONUTRIENTS

The discovery of the role of glyconutrients in the body.  Healthy sugars modulate cellular activity.  These sugars are essential to cellular communication.  The body needs these outside phytochemicals from our food or food sourced supplementation for the immune system to function as designed.

NrF2 SYNERGIZER

Anti-oxididants are ineffective.  They cannot keep up with free radical activity from oxidative stress. Without modulation of certain survival genes and the corresponding enzyme activity, free radical damage goes unchecked.   Certain specific combinations of antagenic herbs can modulate this activity and can be shown and measured to increase enzyme activity which keeps free radicals in check.  This knowledge has important ramifications in the treatment of degenerative diseases and anti-aging.  Essentially, it says you cannot overcome these problems without activating your body's own ability to produce these enzymes.

Candidates must "understand the pros and cons of surgery and high tech radiology."

"That pain may not be what You Think"

This program emphasized that what goes on in one part of the body can affect other parts of the body, and pain in one area may be caused by a problem somewhere else.  This chiropractic centric theme is consistent with the segments theme presented by Dr. Stock, host and MD.
