    Survival Medicine Hour: Antibiotics, Bears, Pt.2, Vitamins

    in Health

    The human body is a marvel of biologic engineering. Its immune system usually kills bacteria and other harmful germs before they can multiply and cause symptoms. Our blood contains white cells, also known as “leukocytes” that attack bacteria. Even if we do experience symptoms, our bodies can usually cope and fight off the infection. It’s thought that this process of suffering an infection and its elimination by an immune response happens every day, usually without any obvious sign.
    There are occasions, however, when the body’s defenses are overwhelmed. In these cases, help is needed, and it comes in the form of antibiotics. The word "antibiotics" is derived from the Greek “anti” ("against") and “bios” ("life"). While this seems a strange foundation for a medicine that saves lives, the meaning is simply that the drug is “against” the life of the disease-causing organism. 
    Joe and Amy Alton discuss antibiotics from a historical standpoint, do you know which was the first to be placed on the market?
    Also, Joe Alton MD finishes his discussion of bear encounters with advice on bear sprays and the difference between brown and black bear attack and defense strategies. Lastly, Amy Alton ARNP discusses how nutrition plays a role in keeping you healthy in good or bad times!
    All this and more on the Survival Medicine Hour with the Altons!

    Glenn Livingston, Ph.D.

    in Fitness

    Glenn Livingston, Ph.D. is a veteran psychologist and was the long time CEO of a multi-million dollar consulting firm which has serviced several Fortune 500 clients in the food industry. You may have seen his (or his company's)  previous work, theories, and research in major periodicals like The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, The Chicago Sun Times, The Indiana Star Ledger, The NY Daily News, American Demographics, or any of the other major media outlets you see on this page.  You may also have heard him on ABC, WGN, and/or CBS radio, or UPN TV.  
     
    Disillusioned by what traditional psychology had to offer overweight and/or food obsessed individuals, Dr. Livingston spent several decades researching the nature of bingeing and overeating via work with his own patients AND a self-funded research program with more than 40,000 participants.  Most important, however, was his own personal journey out of obesity and food prison to a normal, healthy weight and a much more lighthearted relationship with food.
