In this shocking interview with Dr. Carolyn Dean, one of the nation's leading natural physicians, we discuss Dr. Dean's amazing new book “Death by Modern Medicine” . Be prepared to learn the truth about the travesties of modern medicine that are surrounding you, including:
-Why modern medical doctors are killing people unintentionally…
-How we are being brainwashing by media propoganda and drug companies…
-The real truth about modern drugs and “cutting-edge” procedures…
-Why cancer is now a multi-billion dollar industry that feeds on fear…
-Information about Dr. Dean's other new book “How To Change Your Life With Magnesium”…
-And much more!

Listener Judy asks: I have taken your advice on the supplements and ordered quite a few which I like. However I'm hoping you can clarify how and when to take the “performance” supplements you suggest. Specifically, I have the race caps supreme, the cordygen vo2, and the CREo2. They all say best used 46-60 minutes before exercise and better on an “empty stomach”. How long do I wait to eat, assuming some nutrition is required before an extended period of exercise. Also if I do 2 a days, should they be repeated in the afternoon prior to the next event, lasting approximately an hour or longer. Finally, I have the recover-ease and should that be taken twice as well if there is two exercise periods a day, and should it be taken if you also do a recovery drink? Well, one more question. What are your thoughts about “alkaline H20”? Specifically, will it lessen the effectiveness of any supplements?
Listener Katie asks: My question for you is this: what has been your experience/thoughts with “the master cleanse”/the lemonade diet? I did it once a couple of years ago (ironically, before I was as health-conscious as I am now) and I remember feeling good when I did it, but I wanted to see what those more informed than I thought about it. Let me know if you can–I'd like to start it soon if it really is something as beneficial as it says it is.
Listener Bret asks: On your podcast #51 you mentioned a client you put on HCG. Last summer I went on a 45 day cycle of HCG and dropped about 40lbs. As you know I am 11 weeks out from my Ironman and am maintaing weight…however I really want to drop another 20-30lbs. Would you suggest HCG again? I know that another 20 lbs would really help with my speed and get better results from all the work I am doing, but to do HCG per Dr Simeons protocol says no workouts and I would be working on no calories.
Listener Anya asks: Ben, this is my first time commenting on your podcast and I appreciate you taking the time to answer my question. I have a running question for you. I do some running-nothing crazy-but I can easily run 5 miles and up to 8 miles off the couch without any training. I have been noticing that my knees (esp. right one) are bothering me. I have new shoes–Brooks–fitted at running store–so it's not that. The owner there said being a female who has had children, that is to be expected–having to do with hips or something–and he said to do dynamic stretching. Do you agree with that? I really don't want to stop running–I love little races and 1/2 marathons etc. What do you think? Is it just a stretching thing (which I don't do a lot of)?
Listener Eric asks: Ben, I guess my question is both sugary drinks and diet drinks are a poor choice, but what are some drinks you use? I have been doing Stevia and lemons in water and is really good, but want some additional ideas for a low calories somewhat sweet drink.
Listener Chuck asks: I thought that information about Octacosanol was very interesting and you gave a really good answer to the question. How much wheat germ would I have to eat daily to obtain the suggested benefits of the Octacosanol? I've seen it avaible in oil extract as well, but would rather just be able to eat it.
Listener Jen asks: I spend most of my work day sitting at my desk, but as I have learned from you, I know the benefits of standing as much as possible versus sitting. I can’t stand at my desk, but I’ve seen people in the past sit on inflatable exercise balls. Does actually provide any benefit? My back often hurts and I am hoping it may help this as well. What do you think? Thanks!
Listener Chris aks: Switching to low-fiber foods a few days before an event is advisable, right? I was just doing a google search on low-fiber foods, and found a lot of lists that contradict each other. Could you make a short list of foods that actually have low fiber content that are reasonable for an athlete to eat?
