Dr. M’s SPA Newsletter Audiocast Volume 12 Issue 26

Depression has been a problem for humans for a very long time. It is the leading cause of suicide and lost vitality for life. It is a tricky disease that has been more prevalent and severe in the last few decades. the pandemic was not kind to people suffering from mood dysthymia. Traditional pharmacological and verbal based therapies have been useful for some while not so much for others. The treatment resistant group is the focus of a new series of studies with psychedelic medicines. These studies are offering hope for many individuals that previously had none.

In this audiocast, we also cover critics and school start times. 

Best,

Dr. M’s Women and Children First Podcast – Covid Pathophysiology Deep Dive, Death Risk and Disease Prevention

Covid Pathophysiology Deep Dive, Death Risk and Disease Prevention

In this weeks podcast we go very deep into the world of why Covid19 was able to produce so much mortality in the United States. Why were we so unprepared to survive as a culture? Why is this virus so capable of hijacking our immune physiology for it’s benefit? What are the upstream risk factors for a bad outcome. But most importantly, we learn the immune based reasons why we are at risk at the micro level leading to concrete pathways to undoing the risk.

Diving deep is sometimes necessary to find the treasure below. This week is one of those journeys.
