Integrative physician, Gus Kotsanis, MD, was my guest the first half of the program. I asked his thoughts about covid-19 and posed questions submitted by listeners on glaucoma, peripheral neuropathy, hormone replacement and Hashimoto’s thyroiditis. The good doc also explained how to help slow aging and reduce joint pain with platelet-rich plasma therapy (PRP) and exosomes.
Next up, Health Educator, Peggy Hall, of TheHealthyAmerican.org returned with education and updates on the use of masks that are promoted (and often mandated) to slow the spread of covid-19. Mentioned: The Duke University study detailing which masks work best. The NEJM study which says that masks in public (outside of medical facility) is mainly a reaction to anxiety. Scientists in Holland say there is not convincing evidence of mask benefits and that there is potential for harm. Read my recent blog on pros and cons of masks. Hint, I wear one into stores and restaurants but not in the car or outside.
