Science vs. Covid-19, Flu, Colds & Allergies- Part 2 of 3: Viral Comparisons

Science vs. Covid-19, Flu, Colds & Allergies- Part 2 of 3: Viral Comparisons

The answer is no, so far as we currently know. Before diving into that information, we would like to express our sympathies regarding the constantly changing information revolving around Covid-19 and the emotional stress that it creates. We are like ping-pong balls bouncing all directions as new research continues to emerge, causing changes in recommendations and protocols to best protect ourselves and our loved ones from Covid-19. This can leave us feeling confused, frustrated, or hopeless. However, it is this same science that gives us hope. Let’s talk about science for a moment.

HHP Expert – Dr. Donald S. Teig – High Performance Vision

On this week’s show, Amy and Dr. B are joined by Dr. Donald S. Teig, author of High Performance Vision, to talk about visual performance in sports and in life. Dr. Teig starts by talking about his background in psychology and how that shaped his interest in all aspects of visual performance. Dr. Teig explains how depth perception, peripheral awareness, eye-hand coordination, visual acuity, contrast sensitivity, and many other visual parameters all factor into vision performance. They discuss the impact of stress on vision and why athletes often report improved visual performance when they’re “in the zone”. Dr. Teig talks about the phrase, “keep your eye on the ball” and how he teaches baseball players to put it to practical use. They also discuss the impact of dominant vs. non-dominant eyes in sports performance, non-sport applications like reading, and how to tell which of your eyes is dominant.

HHP Expert – Dr. Mandip S Kang, MD, FASN – The Doctor’s Kidney Diets

On this week’s show, Amy and Dr. B. are joined by Brittany Henderson, MD, to discuss her book, What You Must Know About Hashimoto’s Disease: Restoring Thyroid Health Through Traditional and Complementary Medicine. Dr. Henderson talks about her background as a board-certified endocrinologist and what led her to open a thyroid-specific practice and writing a book on Hashimoto’s disease. She discusses the overall prevalence of hypothyroidism, how suffering from one autoimmune disease can make you more susceptible to other autoimmune issues, and outlines some of the major symptoms of thyroid issues, like fatigue, weight gain, reproductive health, constipation, and feelings of “brain fog”. They spend some time discussing how thyroid health is still massively under-diagnosed in relation to fertility issues and why we see so many instances of postpartum thyroiditis, a form of Hashimoto’s disease that arises after pregnancy. Dr. Henderson gives a thorough explanation of TSH (Thyroid Stimulating Hormone) and how it is currently used to evaluate thyroid hormone levels in the body, as well as the thyroid’s relationship to body temperature and birth control. The group then discusses dietary concerns, including what to eat and what to avoid. Dr. Henderson ends the show by offering three pieces of advice for those that may be suffering from thyroid conditions. You can find Dr. Henderson’s book at amazon.com and wherever books are sold.

HHP – Dr. Shawn Benzinger – Stress Kills: How Stress Shows Up & What It Can Do – Part 3

This week, we’re bringing you the final part of Dr. B’s series on stress. Amy sits down with Dr. B for a discussion on how your mindset can affect the way you deal with stress. They start off by giving examples of how their mindsets have changed in their own lives recently and the effects those changes have had on their personal stress levels. Dr. B. outlines some problematic tendencies that can arise with fixed mindsets compared to growth mindsets, like gravitating towards known quantities instead of seeking out new experiences, declaring relationships as broken before first trying to work on them, or relying on natural talent above putting in hard work to succeed. Then he and Amy go over some of the ways that we can recognize fixed mindsets and work to develop growth mindsets in our own lives.
