Show 1057: How Can You Improve Your Immune Response?
In this season of colds and flu viruses, do you know how to improve your immune response and lower your susceptibility? Dr. Tieraona Low Dog discusses a wide range of natural approaches to improving your immunity, from simple steps like getting enough sleep to exotic herbs like ashwagandha, from the Ayurvedic tradition.
Cooking with Herbs Every Day:
We also discuss the role that other Ayurvedic herbs such as turmeric could play in reducing the chance of developing dementia. Indian herbs are not the only ones with the potential to improve our health. Dr. Low Dog believes that consistent use of culinary herbs typical of Mediterranean cuisine such as basil, thyme and rosemary as well as those found in other food traditions, from South Asia to South America, could help improve our cardiovascular and neurological health. Daily consumption of herbs could even help improve our immune response.
Health Care Controversies:
We invited Dr. Low Dog to share her perspective on some current controversies in medicine. She offers her take on the use of statins, the diagnosis and treatment of thyroid disorders and the benefits of nutritional supplements.
