 Dr. David Naimon talks with Dr. D. Lindsey Berkson, the author of Healthy Digestion the Natural Way: Preventing and Healing Heartburn, Constipation, Gas, Diarrhea, Inflammatory Bowel and Gallbladder Diseases.

A complete guide to healing your digestive problems, once and for all—safely, inexpensively, naturally.  Good digestion is fundamental to good health, and even such common problems as chronic heartburn and gas can have harmful effects on virtually every cell in your body. Quick fixes such as over-the-counter and prescription medications don’t address the real causes of the problems: they only mask symptoms. Nature, on the other hand, offers a variety of gentle, readily available remedies that not only treat underlying digestive problems but also help to promote overall well-being. Learn about natural solutions and how to put them to work for you in Healthy Digestion the Natural Way. Dr. D. Lindsey Berkson clearly and simply explains the normal digestive processes and what can happen to interfere with them.

If you suffer from allergic symptoms in the spring (or any other time), your symptoms may be telling you something valuable, that it may be time to clean things up, make changes, look more deeply at your health. The phenomenon of “allergy” in your body can be related to problems such as chronic fatigue, upper respiratory illness, asthma, eczema, sinus problems, even serious auto-immune diseases.   This spring, listen to your stuffiness, itchy or watery eyes,  congestion, sinus pain, sneezing, or whatever your particular symptoms are.   Your symptoms may be telling you secrets that hold the keys to  unlock other mysteries about your health.

Host Dr. David Naimon talks with local naturopathic physician and acupuncturist Dr. Gary Weiner about how to decipher what your spring allergies may be telling you about your health and how to best address these symptoms.
