Do You Have Digestion Problems In North Georgia and Gainesville?

Hello and welcome again to the winter wellness podcast here at winter wellness calm. My name is Mike Stewart. I’m here with Dr. JACK winter. Our resident expert on all things wellness. And jack, are you ready to talk about a new subject today?

Yes, Mike, I am ready.

Well, I heard that you want to talk about digestive problems. And you know, I have had my share. I have a hiatal hernia, I’ve had acid reflux. I know what GERD is. I mean, there are so many problems. I personally, when I started changing my diet, not drinking anything alcoholic. And of course, there’s a couple other things that I have pulled out. You know, a lot of those things improve, but I want to hear what your take on digestive problems, the ones that people have and what winter wellness can do to solve those problems.

Good. Mike, let’s talk about that. By the way, congratulations on doing the things you’ve done. To encourage people to do the same thing you’ve done as well. I know when you get results like that is more encouragement. To keep on going. So I just kind of want to give an overview about, again, when people have digestive problems. What do you think is drugs? And the only answer? We’re finding Actually, that’s not really the only answer. And sometimes that’s not even the answer. So I’ll just give you an example of a man that came into my office. He was having 1012 bowel movements a day. When he left his home, he had to figure out what where he could stop along the way to find a restroom because he couldn’t make it from one place to another. Can you imagine 10 to 12 bowel movements a day. They’re usually loose stools, and each episode was explosive when he had the involvement. This process went on for years. It was actually just ruin and ruin his life. What was happening? This process is he went to the doctors and he tried the medication and they suggested fine got to the point that he had the body section, and he wasn’t ready to do that. He said there’s got to be some other reason. So He had a chance and opportunity to come work with us. And I want to tell you some things about this whole process. Before I tell you how this result came out to be. What he had, by the way, what they diagnosed with him was irritable bowel syndrome, like you mentioned earlier about girls and hiatal hernias, and these are all part of that digestive problem. So we’re going to talk about that whole overview of all these kinds of things are going on to people with digestive problems are having now.

So I looked up and this they tell us about 79% of Americans have digestive problems at some point or another. 79% is a large number, it’s into the millions. So what’s sad about this is that when people have these kinds of problems when they go to their doctor, but doctors don’t really have any good tests to find out. What do you really have here? You have, like blood tests, or stool samples, do x rays do tissue analysis and biopsies. So they’re looking for the problem, but they don’t have any definitive way to say this is really what your problem is. And this is what we have to solve. Your problem. So the diagnosis has been so scanty at this point that people become confused. Now the fact that doctors are confused about what really the problem really is. So here’s some of the names that people get from this digestive, gastrointestinal, gastrointestinal means it comes into your mouth and goes down through your stomach and your large, small and large intestine out your ball. That’s called gastro intestinal involvement. So anywhere along the way, you can have a problem with any of those areas. So they have a thing called GERD, like you mentioned that earlier. Goods means gastro esophageal reflux response, that’s what that means. And people a lot of people have that swallow, they can feel stuff in their throat. I didn’t go down or didn’t stay down, but they lay down it all comes back up again. You mentioned ear to wall syndrome. irritable bowel syndrome is active Oh, it’s actually inflamed. It’s painful to swelling, a lot of sharp pain and oftentimes, you’ve heard of also also to pull out Does all sorts actually in the large and small intestine is a chronic inflamed ball, acid reflux, or acid indigestion many people have and take things for that. By the way for years, heartburn, like you mentioned hiatal hernia, we see that a lot at the stomach that actually comes up into the esophagus, which is by the way, all fixable things, constipation and diarrhea. These are all part of gastrointestinal involvement. So all these names just described as there’s some kind of problem somewhere along the way, is causing your body not to digest properly or have a lot of pain as well along the way. So what the doctors are trying to do is take the very best guess they can give you something okay, we’ll solve that problem. That works. That was wonderful. And then we’ll try something different. What we’re always trying to do is find out the problem and correct the beat problems we can we do that now eliminate the problem. So here’s how you might see somebody out there you might see gap might see you stomach distension the eating certain kinds of kinds of foods and how to backup your system, you have to bring it back up to birth it back up. You have stomach or Donald pain or swelling, you’d have diarrhea or constipation, which by the way will find a lot of people constipation like it’s, it’s almost epidemic out there.

And you’re also just adult pain which also is fine like a dry cough, heartburn, even some asthmatic problems are coming from gastrointestinal problems. So, those are some of the many conditions that existed out there. But along with that you can have these things that are attributed to gastrointestinal problems, chronic fatigue, aches and pains just all over your body. decrease in your immunity reactions and itching, especially in the rectum area but can be on your skin as well. A lot of psychological problems. Again, when you don’t feel good, affects you emotionally. So now you’re irritable More often you’re angry and frustrated. Because these problems are consistent, persist. Every time you have a meal or you don’t don’t eat, you have the same kinds of problems after well, psychologically, they’re involved as well. So let’s look at some of the solutions to these problems and make you’ve done a good job. And you talked about diet and diet is number one. We’re always looking to people’s diet. And a lot of people say, Well, I’d like to change my diet, but I don’t really know what to do with that. And that’s one things we talked about in the office. And we’ll lay things out to them that how can they change the diet in such a way that one step after another they get get an improved their diet. And as you’ve done like, and if we have people do as well, we have to change the pattern. The learner pattern is causing these problems. You guys came some kind of a pattern and look at what you’re doing. How can we make it better? That’s what we’ll talk about in our office. Well, I was looking at live foods, that food come from the grocery store that actually outside the grocery store, fruits and vegetables, we want to put those into the system and we’re also talking about toxic water. When people are in the system because the water keeps flushing this catchment tester system out. I’m gonna think about live foods, by the way, because we’re thoughtful about the rubbish called Live enzymes to actually help the ball do its job digest that food and break it down. And then we also want to talk about other aspects of your life. Not just diet, but also exercise movement. And that extra doesn’t mean lifting weights. That means out there walking, moving around, going for hikes, yoga, if you like to do their bodies you like to event any activity gets body moving on why that happened because those muscles actually need that ball, help things move along the way and keep the guests on test the system, clear the movie. Also, we’re talking about emotional stress. You know a lot of things that people don’t want to talk about but don’t realize it have some kind of action on your body and when you’re stressed out, it affects how you breathe your short, tight breath affects the justice system. stomach is tight and Here’s the ball. So, the emotional states, big play big card here, as well as some people look at just laugh or smile more, get involved in living your life and enjoy your life and relax, because it’s all has to relax to do its job doesn’t have to have that tension especially put into it. And right now we’re kind of hovering around the corner virus pandemic, that stress a lot of people out that fear is affecting the gastrointestinal system as well. So give some WC field films or Laurel hardy films or three stooges or something, you get out there and laugh. I like Kevin Hart, personally. So people kinds of things you can do to get yourself laughing and relax here. Beyond that, find yourself a reputable health care provider. Someone who can help you realign your system get your body back for optimal health. Remember you buy is a self healer. It’s once a year this process is going to if you’re going to a health care professional that can help you relax allergist or chiropractor acupuncturist nutritionist, massage therapist, an exercise coach will be helpful to you just a natural path. You know, I’m a kinesiologist. So I’m really thoughtful about mutuality and how important it is and our system.

Can you say ology work with the whole body and our approach Not only is just physical but nutritional, emotional as well. So I like person, whole body approach. So I want to kind of like give a kind of a kick of what we do here. We’re wellness centers. We’ve been here for 37 years and the Gainesville Hall, county area, Georgia. We’ve had an opportunity working actually thousands of people with nutritional and aspects of healthcare, and certainly gastrointestinal system is foundational to your healthcare. But as we’re looking at the process of what we’re doing here, it’s difficult for many people to understand what chiropractor Can you tell us who helped me? Well, what we’ve done to give you the confidence of what we do We’ve actually developed about 130 different videos of people with all kinds of conditions, from cirrhosis of the liver to autoimmune disease, and cancer and chronic fatigue. And yes to irritable, irritable bowel and how hernias to insomnia. We put those videos out there because we want you to be able to understand you’re just like all the other people that came to our office and they got there as well. If you have the confidence, they see the content they got from what we did with them. And we’re not trying to throw that confidence in you as well. So by the way, I want to finish up that one story with you about the fella came in with intent to cause drama today. He know he’s working out two jobs. He has three to four Bob moments a day, half of those, most of those actually formed stores now. So his bowels are not clearing the way he’s supposed to. He’s starting to get he’s looking for a third job now. So now he has by telling him to live his life again. So that possibility happens not just with him but with you as well. So, again, in our, our office, the winter Wellness Center, we have a nutritionist board, I think the best in the world and in our staff, we’re going to find your problem, we’ll find out which ones we need to deal with, which areas of bio concern with yours and how we can solve that problem. And want to give you the competence, you know, that’s possible for you. What you could do here at this point is make the phone call, which is 7780536 6600. Go to winner wellness.com or just a website and you’re gonna find it’ll take you to those videos in that you make a phone call and have a conversation with you as well. So, Mike, we look forward to helping the people that have these kind of conditions and don’t have to live with them anymore.

Colitis, Crohn’s Disease, IBS North Georgia

Ulcerative Colitis is a condition that we thought could only be corrected by the use of drugs. This video shows a patient that had this condition and was corrected using natural therapies. He wanted to share his experience.

Steven has had Crohn’s Disease for years.  He couldn’t leave
the house unless he knew where there were restrooms along
his route so he could manage his explosive diarrhea. Since this
condition happened 10 to 12 times a day it was ruling and ruining
his life.  Over the years the doctors and the medication he was
taking was astounding, yet there was still no relief. He and his Mom
knew they had to step outside the box of traditional medicine and
try another approach.

When I first met Steven I gained his confidence by explaining to
him and his Mother that to be successful in correcting his problem,
we had to find the cause.  So we were going to approach this condition from
three points of view.

   1. Dietary
   2. Structurally
   3. Emotionally

Once we did that the rest, as they say, ‘is history’.  But I think Steven can
tell his story better than I could, so please click on the link below to hear it.

Knees Hurt in Gainesville Georgia, Listen To Dr. Jack Winner.

Welcome, everybody. My name is Mike Stewart and I am the host of the Winner Wellness podcast here at winnerwellness.com. You know, this is the place when you have any kind of health problems and you want your wellness to improve. All you got to remember is Google winter wellness. And you go out and see Dr. JACK and Jean Winner at Winner Wellness and they had the answers to your questions. Well, I have a question today for Dr. JACK. You hear Dr. JACK? I’m here. Good to hear from you today?

Oh, you know, I’m gonna have to be. This is True Confessions day for you. I know I’m overweight. I know I don’t exercise enough. And I don’t drink near enough water. You’ve told me I need to do those things. But I’m going to be true confessions. I probably should do more. I should do better. But I can tell you something that you did I want to have answers to and suggestion to my knees ache all the time. I mean, they are sore. They’re not excruciating pain. I’ve actually had friends who had knee pain that they said they felt like a knife was sticking in it and they’ve had to actually go get knee replacements. But you know, I don’t think I’m that bad. But I bet there’s a lot of people out there that have knee pain. And you know, what’s wrong with me? And what should I be doing? And I guarantee you this this, what you’re gonna tell me could help a lot of people. So you have the floor to answer that. It’s crazy questions.

You’re not crazy, you know, we all are doing the best job we can out there. But again, knee pains is not unusual. Like it’s not a fact that kind of looked it up and they say, arthritic Lee 54 million Americans have knee pain. That’s what’s been reported in sadly with that 300,000 active children. So we know those are what’s been reported. Majority of those are not being reported. What kind of they think they’re, statistically tell us of 103 million people have knee problems. They just walk around with it, just living with it. I’m sure you must be aware of that and people just aren’t going to do something about it just because it hurts, they hope is gonna go away. So we’re just seeing an increased trend. And it’s not only just a nice Also, by the way, we’re seeing it in hips as well. We also have the realization how much the back is involved in this process as well. A lot of people have back problems as well. Like it’s not as not a one thing problem. But something was really interesting to me, Canada right now, because they have their health care system takes care of their health, they’re actually begin to call this a quiet epidemic for knee problems, because they’ve seen so much of this, including hip replacement, knee replacement, so they realize it’s a problem as well. So having good healthcare is a nice thing to have, again, people want to be on a pain so people have a good health care system doesn’t mean you’re not going to have pain here. So let’s just kind of look at this we can knee knee problems, what they’re coming from, this is a problem you think you asked me about? And there’s a lot of reasons for knee problems. Let’s see if you fall into one of these categories. First of all, poor health, obesity, heart disease, poor nutrition diet. Structural imbalance, trauma to the knee. Diabetes, psychological problems can affect your knees also, by the way, well back pain, parasites, which is pretty hard to understand, but I’m gonna give you a story. I want to give a story about that parasites right now. Phil came in had knee problems well, young man in the 30, you got three years old. He had a problem with his knee has been going on for months. And so as we checked out him structurally, all his muscles are strong, he was doing great, I was exercising but it pain just would not go away. Like come to find out he had a parasite. He had a dog And he loves his little dog. My dog is actually next to him and Lexan and you know, mix all his some of some of the things he puts in his mouth and same as a little boy as well. So we thought that they had parasites cleared the parasites often, which is a pretty, pretty simple thing. a nutritionist gave him some stuff called warm wood. Within actually two days the pain began to go away in the past the parasites and the paint went away. Now there’s a lot of other things that will can cause a problem. But again, we’re always looking for any of these possibilities. By the way, poor exercise habits is another thing like you mentioned. And obviously water is important portion as well. So we look at the problem, not just looking at the symptom of that knee, we’re looking at the structure, what’s going on with the person’s body. I have another story about what we think now if we have a problem like that, we’re going to get a surgical procedure. We’ll make one out of five scissors. surgeries actually don’t work. People actually unhappy after they have the surgery, and realize that probably wasn’t the right way to go. Well, of course, if you had surgery, you’re gonna have a nine to one. And I said, Jeff, why would you have a nine surgeries if it didn’t work for you? Because my doctors told me well, sadly, the doctors didn’t give me another option. That’s the only option just had another surgery. So he had a nice 30 By the way, I’m sorry, that’s not true yet. We had a chance to work with him. And within a couple weeks that we got him out of pain, but he decided not to do that nine surgery. And the doctors call them and try to kind of push them back into the ninth one. Once we had a chance to clear it with him he cut my grass the next two years and no pain there at all. We had some back problems actually what he had once we corrected that problem took pressure off that knee.

So, um, what what’s kind of sad about all this Mike is when you have a knee problem it alters your day to day life, interaction with your friends and family. And certainly as you get older and we’re starting to see this what people are thinking about the Golden Age, they get that golden age and now we don’t have that retirement freedom because I can’t play golf anymore. I can’t walk in the shop. Wipe down the nice garden skin gardening Walker the need to hurt so with this pain comes a limited, we call restricted range of motion. That means the movement your legs now is reduced and you start to get up and down. Now you try getting 40 grandkids you can’t get up off the floor anymore. Could you even do that? So if that’s you start losing your freedom all the time. Also I find that men who are really generally bound, actually duty bound to do things for the family and for their community. They found they have a problem doing that, because they can’t do the thing anymore. It’s kind of heartbreaking when you hear these people’s problems. So I always ask patients as your need against breakdown, to see the big picture. The knees only actually in a one indication that something your system is under stress is leading to a bigger breakdown, sometime sooner or later. So I want to give you some possibilities. Mike is like what’s possible. First of all, realize you got a problem. Again, we can just get an Aggie profaned hold on keeps either going away, but we don’t stop to look at it is a problem it persists. I need to stop and understand what’s going on here. So if you realize you have pain, you have a change in your posture. You can start seeing those people start stupid over and then forward. By the way, when they started doing that, they put more pressure on those Nice cars, they’re probably elevate and get quicker and faster. Also, when you have a last one call loss range of motion. In other words, if you start moving and you it’s harder and you’re stiffer, that loss of range of motion is telling you, you need to begin to break down. Then again, achy joints, achy joints can be any place in the body. Interesting. So my partner Jean is going to talk about arthritis and our next podcast. That’s why it’s just a killer out there. We’ll get to see it more more all the time. So when your joints begin to break down, your knees are one of those joints to take all that kind of stress, and they’re gonna begin to break down as well. So that begins to happen, you know, it’s time to make a decision about something to happen. So here’s what’s what you do after you said there is a problem I really just now determined you got to do something about it. And we talked about three different perspectives. The Conservative perspective, the one the stoplights of conservative and no one is radical. In the surgeon perspectives, okay, who can I go to a doctor of chiropractic naturopath, a physical therapist, and acupuncturist and I’m a kinesiology so I like to use algae will because things can you say algae will not only the nervous supply also muscle function those muscles not just the muscles but your back muscles and leg muscles, all the muscle support that joint so we change your structure. So we don’t we pressure that knee again so that when in your life, you might want to look at those possibilities. Certainly if you’ve tried the conservative approach and you tried to get a PC ology the chiropractic next thing you probably want to do is do drugs. Good drugs are good for short term and long term drugs usually don’t help. I think most people know that you had any problem you start taking drugs or medication. You know, there’s a list of side effects, no side effects of and not only affects your knee, they also affect your whole system, liver, kidney, so forth. And the last very last resort of how to take care of that knee surgery. We can say one out of five people don’t do well surgeries. Again, you always have to ask the question, if I have surgery, why did the problem exist in the first place? So if the problem is this in the first place, there must be something deeper issue going on. So here’s something that we already know and see if this resonates with you as well. We already know that your body is a self healer. It wants to heal itself. So we’re going to work with determine with that determination that body is breaking down someplace, but your body is trying to solve the problem. So it could be your knee, but likely there are other and maybe probably many layers of factors are going to do that have to be dealt with and could be dealt with. So it will not only get the pressure off your knee and get the pain to go away. When enhance your body’s ability to be healthy. It isn’t at the big picture that we all want anyway, but we all want to be healthy. Begin to determine what is the factors we need to deal with. Mike, we’re always gonna do that one at a time. We’re not gonna say look through all this and we’ll cortisone that knee and make the pain go away. We want to change the lifestyle that got you to this position. Now obviously what we talked about if you do the same continue same thing, get the same results, they call that

not too smart, actually. So if we understand we’re doing something, we’ve got to change some kind of process or procedure here to help the body get healthy, then we want to look at that way. So I have a staff of acting professionals that we’re going to go if you come to see us in our office, we’re gonna find out where that problem is, we want to find a cause. And when we can find the cause, we now know we can get to the bottom of your problem, what the real problem is, and that’s what we want to go to. So if we can get connected, correct the cause and correct the problem. So Mike, I’ve been doing this for 37 years, and I’ve personally dealt with hundreds of years, nice little bats and hip problems seem to work down with it all. We know you know, something, it’s a thrill to help people. And when you get somebody, not only just knee pain, you also get them out of pain and get the body function. Come back again, help this by doing does well heal itself. It’s fun. It’s fun for them. And it’s certainly fun for us to watch that. We change them incorrectly as well. So if you’d like to tell people, they’re ready for a change, it’s affordable. It’s so effective. So, I hope this kind of gives some people some understand what’s possible out there. So we can’t help them.

Well, I have to say one thing, Dr. JACK, you really hit home with this one. A lot of the things that you pointed out, I’m a living example of that fact. I got one question for you. I’m sitting here with my knee and when I move it out, it pops and crackles and I can actually feel pops and crackles in that knee. Right? What is that?

Like? What that is, is I’ll give you a little story with that. Your body wants two things always. It wants stability and flexibility. If it only has one option, it’s going to take stability, that knee is going to stabilize. So someone your system by began to break down and says gosh, I can’t keep those muscles doing their job well, so when they stabilize that joint, so the tendons get tight, the tendons get tight around that joint, they are less flexible, their job a little more stability and flexibility. So the tendons start getting tighter in that goes on for too long period of time, the guy will actually lay calcium down in that joint area in those tendons. So those that calcium began to be a Christian formation that crystallized formation. And then after that crystal formation becomes we calcium by also calcify the joint. So you’re going through a phase of where the by lost its flexibility is starting to come into stability, and those tendons are starting to tighten that joint to give you protection. The same thing as losing that range of motion. That cracking is those fibers that are being crystallized, they’re releasing letting go that’s the crack is all about.

Oh, well. That’s why you’re the doctor and I’m the host Folks, I tell you what Dr. JACK has got more answers than you can imagine. That’s why you want to subscribe to the Winner Wellness podcast in Apple in Google and Spotify and at winnerwellness.com. And if I lived in Gainesville, I think I would come over this afternoon and let you look at these cracking knees of mine.

I will have tea.

But since I have to do this virtually, I will I will take your advice and see if I can start changing my evil ways that Santana said years ago.

I want you around Michael

Gainesville Georgia, Here’s Pandemic Nutrition Facts You Need To Know

Hello again, it’s Mike Stewart with the Winter Wellness Podcast and I’m here with a nutrition expert, Ms Jeanne Winner, a nutritionist at the Winter Wellness Center. Today we’re going to be talking because it is April 2020 and of course we’re all in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. We’ve been quarantined for many, many weeks now. The thing is, is pandemics have been around since the history of man. There’s all kinds of things where the different viruses and bacteria diseases have ravaged the world. We’re in the midst of something that’s really common in history, so we really need to have more ideas and suggestions to prepare for the future. From your perspective as the expert nutritionist at Winter Wellness Center, Jeanne, I hope you can share some new ideas and suggestions that we all need to consider and implement in our lives. Welcome to the podcast, Jeanne.

Well, thank you very much Mike. I think the real pandemic here is the fact that we as a whole have been neglecting our body through working and throwing our nutritional needs by the wayside. You think about how often that you’re pressed to grab something to eat or not eat. Sometimes when you grab something to eat, it may not be quite the most nutritious food for you. Today I thought we would just talk about how the immune system works. We did talk about that in an earlier podcast, but I wanted to go into some things that you can do on a regular basis to offset the damage that’s being done by poor diet and also by allowing too much toxicity to build up in the body.

The wonderful thing about the body’s immune system that literally the whole body is involved with protecting itself from invaders. You think about your elimination system, your body eliminates toxins. Your liver neutralizes poisons and toxins and removes them from the body. You want to make sure you have a good elimination system and never allow yourself to become constipated for very long. You want to make sure that toxins are flowing out of your body and in a proper way. When we’re looking at the immune system that not only involves your body, but there are specific organs. We did talk about the bone marrow, how immune cells are actually created there from STEM cells and then they are transported to other glands and organs to mature and diversify as different cells. We’re not going to talk about that as much as we’re going to talk about the way the immune system functions.

Yes, you look at your immune system as your protection against disease and damage from foreign bodies that can invade such as viruses, bacteria, and parasites. Viruses aren’t the only things that can invade the body. You can also have bacterial invasion, bacteria infections. Parasites are also all things that your body can protect you from. The key is to have an immune system that works. Obviously what is bringing to our attention is that many people nowadays do not have an immune system that is working properly. It’s malfunctioning. They’re very high risk for infections that are viral in nature and otherwise. When your immune system is working properly, and we will talk about how to keep it working properly, that immune system is able to identify and detect viruses, bacteria, parasites and other foreign bodies that are threats, that can be threats and damage the body itself. These immune cells are able to distinguish these as threats and not as part of the body itself. That’s pretty amazing.

When these immune cells recognize this invader, immediately antibodies are created that are specific and target that threat. Let’s say it’s a specific virus such as COVID-19 then that virus, if that immune system is working properly, is recognized. Antibodies are created to target and destroy that particular virus and even more amazing once that virus is disposed of, your immune system remembers that virus or that other pathogen. If it gets back into your system, it is immediately recognized, attacked and destroyed. We do have this amazing defense system, but we want to understand it and we want to keep it working. Let’s talk a little bit about when it isn’t working and why that happens.

An immune system that isn’t working well is what we call malfunctioning. That is usually due to a deficiency of specific nutrients that has occurred over too long of a period of time. It can also be due to an overload of toxins, in the case of someone who has a very poor or very bad elimination system, or we are exposing our bodies or ingesting way too much chemical infiltration than our body can handle. The result of that is our immune system malfunctions and it doesn’t do the job that it could do. We become subject to infections and autoimmune disease. Infections that are reoccurring, if you get an infection, your body should be able to handle that. You may have to bring in extra help such as immune boosters in herbs that have the ability to help your defenses to handle an infection. In the case of serious infection, then you may have to take stronger steps and that would be through your medical and holistic practitioners. I would not suggest that you try to handle an infection on your own unless you are an expert at it.

When that immune system isn’t working correctly and it is malfunctioning, that’s when a person becomes high risk and eventually does get infections and autoimmune disease. What is an auto immune disease? I’ll give you some examples. If it involves the thyroid that is called Hashimoto’s thyroiditis. If it involves your joints, that is called rheumatoid arthritis. If it involves your whole body, it’s called lupus. That is a spleen auto immune disease. When the immune system is malfunctioning due to deficiencies or overload of toxins, chemicals, and an inefficient elimination system, then what happens is this person can develop an auto immune disease. Before that even happens, the person can develop inflammatory challenges, joint inflammation, gut inflammation, skin inflammation. That often manifest as eczema, psoriasis, red patches, red breakouts on the skin, a host of signals that tell you that they’re your body is inflaming.

What can we do about this? How can we boost our own immune system? Now, obviously if you have an auto immune disease or are subject to inflammations and infections, then you definitely need the advice of an expert in that area. I wouldn’t suggest that you try that on your own, but things you can do on a daily basis to keep your immune system optimized. We’ll talk about number one would be optimizing your vitamin D level. Why is that important? It’s important because vitamin D is your transport for very important nutrients that are needed for immune function. The problem is that most people do not get enough sunlight and especially through the winter days and a lot of rainy days that we’ve had all and it’s cold outside, so most people do not get enough sunlight exposure unless they live in a more tropical area. The reason you want sunlight exposure is because that’s how your body makes vitamin D. Your body is able to make vitamin D which transports nutrients, specifically calcium and other nutrients to the bloodstream so that your cells can get it and utilize it. Specifically your immune cells need calcium and essential fatty acids in order to be able to move around and do the work that they need to do.

If you’re not able to get into the sunlight and you live in an area where it is dark most of the time, then you will need to supplement. If you’re taking vitamin D3 you need at least 1,000 to 5,000 IUs a day, but no more than that. It’s just as bad to take too much supplemental vitamin D than it is not to take enough so you don’t want to exceed the 1000 to 5,000 IUs daily. A happy medium would be somewhere in between there. Every chance you get, get some sunlight exposure. You don’t need to be in the sun for hours and hours and hours. Just 20 to 30 minutes is plenty of exposure on major parts of the body, like your legs and your arms.

The second thing I wanted to talk about and most people aren’t going to want to hear this, but it is an actual fact, limit or completely remove, resolve that you’re going to completely remove sugar from your diet. When we’re talking about sugar, we’re not just talking about the table sugar. We’re also talking about starches that turn quickly turn into sugar, so you may not like sweets and desserts, but you may love potato chips and other chips and lots of starches, so it’s the same difference. Look, if you do a sugar cleanse, which is good to do, I’m not saying if you cannot completely eliminate sugars forever, eliminate them periodically for at least 30 days and you will see a remarkable change being freed from blood sugar imbalances, sugar cravings and weight gain. Those are just side benefits, but your immune system is going to be boosted just by eliminating sugar from your diet because sugar decreases your immune function and it inhibits the activity of your immune cells.

You got to think about what that sugar is doing it. Number one, most people have what we call insulin resistance and so they’re not able to produce normal amounts of insulin. For example, if you eat an apple, which should be perfectly healthy to do in its natural state, your body should make just enough insulin to drive the sugar from the apple into your cells and then your cells will use that for energy. However, in the case of most of us who have eaten way too much sugar and carbs through our lifespan, we’ve created a problem called insulin resistance where the cells in our bodies no longer accept that insulin normally and convert it into energy, so the insulin just becomes higher and higher in the bloodstream. When that happens, this creates inflammation. Heart disease kills the immune response and so forth and so on.

Now that is a good thing to do. Wouldn’t you agree? How do you do that? Well, the keto diet, you can do a modified version. You don’t have to do a keto that where you have to check your ketones. People do that who are wanting to lose a lot of weight. In this case, we just want to activate our immune system and remove inflammation and get the insulin resistance resolved in our bloodstream. What is good to do is maybe a 30 day keto, a modified keto type diet. By that I don’t mean run out and buy a bunch of products that say keto and a bunch of candy that says keto or bars that say keto. I’m talking about focusing on intermittent fasting, increasing healthy fats, reducing sugars and eating protein adequate. Your focus would be on vegetables and proteins and healthy fats such as avocados, coconut oil, fish oil, and olive oil.

The third thing that I wanted to talk about is getting six to eight hours of good, deep, restful sleep every night. Now I know inability to sleep is a big problem right now. And so you may be thinking, “Okay, so how am I going to do this? I can’t sleep at all and I’m having to take not only medications to sleep, but other things on top of that and I still don’t sleep well.” Work on getting, you may not be able to get six to eight hours of good sleep, but you can start working on that, working with that being your goal. And if you are not able to sleep and you are on medication, then you want to consult your practitioners about how they can help you get sleep.

On your end, what you can do is eliminate electronic devices by your bedside. Do not sleep with your cell phone under your pillow or on your nightstand. Turn off your TV, cover it with a quilt or other blanket. Make sure it’s dark in the room and go to bed earlier. Don’t stay up till midnight or one o’clock working on your computer unless you work at night and then hoping that you will fall asleep. You have to allow your body’s circadian rhythm to relax in the evening. Give yourself some relaxed time in a darkened room. Then if you put your body in a routine, eventually you will be able to sleep. This is important because during that restful sleep, that is when your body is actually repairing the damage that was done to your cells during the day. It’s repairing the cells and it’s also repairing any damage that was done from stresses during the day. That sleep is when your body is actually healing itself. It’s extremely important.

The last thing I’m going to talk about is moderate exercise and by that we mean walking, bike cycling, some aerobic exercise. If you haven’t done this in a while, I suggest only doing this for as long as you can tolerate five minutes, two minutes if that’s it, but then work up to 10 minutes. Work up to 20 minutes and do that regularly, two or three times a week. Every day if you can. Make it a habit to be able to park a little further out from the grocery store. There are many ways that you can enlist to get exercise. Why do you want to get exercise?

Well, number one, it increases your circulation and it promotes the elimination of the toxins that enter your body every day from the food you eat, the air we breathe and the processes that our body is doing. Your body is filtering all these toxins out and removing those so when you move your body, you help this muscle function to optimize. Moderate exercise also reduces stress and of course this is our end goal, optimizes our immune system function. The key is to get the immune system working to keep it working, give it the support it needs and eat the foods that are conducive to a good, strong immune system.

Now if you’re speaking about foods, if you need to boost your immune system, then you can use the medicinal mushrooms such as the shiitake, the cordyceps, the reishi, the maitake mushrooms. The herbs that you can use are echinacea, goldenseal. Also your vitamins, vitamin C, a good whole food vitamin C rather than large doses of ascorbic acid are what are actually needed. Zinc in its pure form, in a food form, that is also needed. But these work only if you are taking the necessary steps on a regular basis to keep your body’s health and immune system optimized. I hope this has been some food for thought there for you.

Jeanne, I’ll tell you what, there have been so many great nuggets of information that everybody should have paid attention to this. This was enough information for five podcasts. It was great. I encourage everybody to listen to this podcast over and over again, implement the things Jeanne has recommended and go to winterwellness.com to learn more how you can work with these fabulously talented people in making you a better healthy person. And so more importantly, share us on social media, be sure to tell people about the podcast. Subscribe on Apple, Google, and Spotify. And Jeanne, we’ll see you next time on the Winter Wellness Podcast.

Peripheral Nephropathy North Georgia

Debra had Vascular Reflux or known by it’s most common name, Peripheral Nephropathy.
Her legs ached and burned and she was in a lot of pain all the time. As her condition worse
her medical doctors suggested she have her veins stripped. She hoped that that was not
the only alternative since her father had that procedure done and he had more pain and now his legs swelled up and the fluid would not go down.

Debra knew Dr. Winner and has had success with Kinesiology and the Winner Wellness approach, so she wanted to see what they could do using a natural approach.

On that 1st visit that hope turned to a happy reality. The pain diminished enough that she
could see results. By the 5th visit she was out of pain and walking with he grand kids for
a long walk to one of our state parks. Needless to say she was happy to know that Peripheral Nephropathy was not a permanent condition like she was told. She also realized that she was going to be walking with her grand kids for a lot more years to come, PAIN FREE.

Debra recommends the Winner Wellness Center for you because IT WORKS! Call them.

Blocked Sinuses Gainesville Ga


Alex works in a kennel where there is a lot of animal hair and dander to cause allergies and block
up his sinuses. He couldn’t quit his job, but he couldn’t go on like this every day. He hoped there was a natural way to unclog them because after years of using drugs they were not doing the job. He was
still clogging back up again and the side effects of the drugs making him ‘feel weird’.
On the first visit to the Winner Wellness Center he got relief. After they cleared the blockages, they
naturalized the dog and cat hair. I couldn’t believe the results. No drugs, no blockages. I can breath again. It has been months and I still haven’t gone back for a visit and my sinuses are still clear.
Why did I wait so long?

Gainesville Georgia, What To Do For Pandemic Prepartion

Hello everybody and welcome to the Winner Wellness Podcast with your host, Mike Stewart, and resident expert, Dr. Jack Winner. As of today in April 2020, and I want to timestamp this because you might be listening to this far in the future, but as of today, April 2020, we are in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. So Dr. Jack, what are your ideas and suggestions for us to prepare for the future?

Well, Mike, that’s a great idea because if it’s happening now, it certainly could happen in the future. So Mike, what I’d like to do is going to take our listeners through this process so they begin to see really what’s going on.

First of all, let’s start with what we already know. At this point, and this is April of 2020, there’s 42,000 deaths worldwide that we reported. The 42,000 seems like a large number. However, I looked back at last year for the CDC, which is our agency that looks at disease processes in America, and come to find out last year they had anywhere from 24 to 65,000 people die of the flu. Now this is actually what this pandemic is, Coronavirus-19, is actually a flu, which is a virus is actually in the system. So we had 24 to 65,000 in the last year. We didn’t consider that pandemic. That’s just normal flu season. In fact, that’s actually what it was.

So I had a chance also … So again, I want to bring this to light with people because again we now start to play off of fears here, when people are doing things out of fear that because we’re being told by the news media this is a pandemic, this is terrible. So let’s talk about what’s this really doing to us as a society. By the way, I just to put some things in perspective or by the way also again, I told you there’s 42,000 people that we think died from the flu. Now we’re not even sure they really died from that virus, but we’re just going to take it for granted that maybe that’s true. But to give you a perspective here, last year, 647,000 people died of heart attacks. 800,000 people died of suicide. Cancer, 558,000 died of cancer.

Diabetes last year … 1.6 million people died of cancer and 187,000 of those were children. So we start looking at all these numbers and say 42,000 compared to again just suicides in this country is we’re really out of balance here. If we were to go after some kind of pandemic, we should go after heart attacks or suicides. So again, what I think we’re a little out of balance on this one. So when we consider as a pandemic or not, suicide would be considered a pandemic. So right now, our healthcare professionals are saying that now we need, or we have to have vaccine. If we had a vaccine that would stop a lot of this. Again, last year we didn’t have vaccines for that flu or we thought we did to some degree, but we still have that many people dying. So let’s just talk about the virus to put this into perspective as well.

Did you know that the viruses of the body reproduce every 20 to 30 minutes? Not days and months, every 20 or 30 minutes. We know there’s more than a thousand different viruses in your system that are consistently, continually, you produce it all the time. So to go after some kind of a vaccine to stop this problem, as soon as we find one, it’s going to change again. You kind of see it’s changing this all the time. So it’s difficult to find out to say, well, if we get a flu shot, it’s going to solve our problems. We know better than that now.

So another thing we’re looking at is also that we have viruses in our body all the time. It’s consistent. If we’re going to start doing some testing now, and the healthcare professionals have worked real hard to say we can test everybody and they’ve started to come up with the idea that we’ll design this testing procedure and then we can work with this testing procedure.

I don’t know if you all know this right now. Right now we can find cancer cells in your body. You can find those. Does that mean you have cancer? No. You have the cells which are called undifferentiated cells in your body. Does that mean you’re going to have cancer? It doesn’t mean you have cancer. It just means you have cancer cell. How about herpes zoster or shingles? That viruses is in your body. Most of the people have had mumps or measles. That virus is still in your body. If we do a test, we are going to find that virus in your body. It doesn’t mean you’re going to have viruses from shingles and/or herpes zoster. Not necessarily. But then we’re going to talk about immune system, why that would happen. But those viruses are still in your body anyway.

But also all … I also think we have to advise on right now is bacteria, molds, funguses, those are also found in your body. They are found throughout your lifetime. Does that mean you get sick and that’s a pandemic? No, that doesn’t mean that at all. It just means you’re sitting in your body. So it probably comes back to the fact that we have a problem with the immune system. That’s what the problem is. And then you’ve all known and heard about this before: Somebody who has what we consider the coronavirus, that person dies, but the family members don’t die. They didn’t get the vaccination. How did that possibly happen? It’s called resistance. The higher the resistance, the more likelihood that you’re not going to have the problem. So a problem, it really is resistant and that’s what we’re working toward. We want to increase your immunity, what they call it. You constantly hearing in the news, they’re talking about humanity, how important that is.

It is the ultimate importance. That’s what we’re going to. So if we’re going to look this possibility of a pandemic again next year, where we need to look at it is our immune system, each and every one of us with our immune system. That’s some kind of shock we put on our system. But how we actually do the things daily to make sure our systems are healthy.

So let’s talk a bit about immunity. Now last week in our podcast, we talked about white blood cells. White blood cells are the new guys that float through your blood system and their job is to seek out viruses and bacteria and mold and mildew. Their job is to seek those out and kill those. And they do a great job as long as everything works well. So what we find with people that have the problem is their system actually has the white blood cells and that’s not new. That’s everybody’s got those. The problem is the system has too many fires to put out. What I mean by that, when there’s so many things going on in your life, like the body says, No, I got bacterial growth. I got stress in my family and I’m not eating properly. I’m working too hard. All those things basically break the body down.

We talk a lot about if we see the body from three perspectives and I mean when we all get down here, I want to lay those perspectives out so you can very naturally begin to change these things for the next year. Here’s what we see. Physically, your body can breakdown physically, chemically, or emotionally. Let’s start with physically. What we found is people are too sedentary. They sit too much. They don’t want to move too much. We want that to happen because we want to increase blood flow. It’s what movement does. That blood now is taken all over yourself, all over your body into each cell killing bacterial and viral infections. So circulation is necessary.

Also is you’re physically moving. Your muscles are also pushing the lymphatic system. The lymphatic system is like the garbage pail system of the body. It’s actually taking those toxins out of your system, taken through the heart and kidney and eventually up the urinary system out your body. We’re taking those toxins back out and that’s got a flow and that’s where water helps us so much to make that happen.

Also, we’re finding people are not sleeping so well. We find that almost that’s an epidemic out there, that people are not sleeping well from generalized stress. I’ll talk about stress in just a moment. Also pains. We have pains. Oftentimes we say, “Oh, I’ll just take some kind of medication or something to make the pain go away.” But that pain is going on and your body is alerted, the pain is there. It’s still an energy to solve that problem. If it’s still an energy to do that or hold that problem off, your body now has another fire it has to put out. So we want those fires put out. We don’t want the body to be physically going through a lot of activity that it has to deal with. It can’t deal with immunity.

Next thing we’re very thoughtful about is chemically. What’s happened to our society, and you can look around this and see this for yourself. Last 20 years, the overweight population in this country has dramatically increased, obviously increase in diabetes, hypertension, high blood pressure, obesity, is due to our poor diets. What I would ask you to do over time is look at your diet. You got to change that. You want to give your body the possibility and the opportunity to heal itself with good food. Remember food is your medicine. All the pesticides, herbicides, they’re putting on food, the additives are the things that are actually hurting you. Getting good food in your system is necessary so the body doesn’t have to put that fire out as well.

The last thing we see with people is emotional breakdown. People are stressed out. They’re dramatically stressed out now, more than they’ve been in a long, long time. Loss of a family member, fear, anger and frustration. All those things run rampant in our society. And the more they do that, the more fires they add to your body that you have to deal with. There’s an interesting statistic I looked up. You realize that more people die at Christmas time in the years than any other time of the year? Pretty interesting idea. What’s going on with that? What we find is that people are holding themselves emotionally into a position where they can make it through Christmas, then die shortly after on New Year’s. Statistics are very high in that number.

Knowing that the emotional stress of your body affects your physical body as well. So you mean, stress is causing death? Absolutely. What you’re doing with the newspapers and the media that are stressing people out are actually pushing them toward a broken down immune system which we got to bring it back up and maintain as well.

Right. So, that’s kind of the problem. Again, so how are we going to solve that? Well, the first thing we ask you to do is clean up your diet. So just real basic things here. First thing, when you walk into a grocery store, walk on the outside aisles of the grocery store. That’s where the live food is. In other words, fruits, vegetables. Those types of things we want to get into the systems. We want to go with as much as … If we can, as much organic and live food as we can. The reason is because they have vitality and energy. They are healers of the body. Remember: food is your medicine. The better the food, and healthier you’re going to be.

Also water. You can’t overlook water. It’s a basic foundation of your system. Consider the body is 70% water. You got to have that water in the system. How much water? What kind of water? What we like here a lot is hydrolyzed water; you want water that has electrical charge. If you can’t do that, just clean your water up as much as you can. Filter it and get the chlorides and fluorides out of your water, doing it as naturally as you can, and hope anywhere from 24 to 64 ounces of water a day would be a great way to go about things. You can do more if you choose to.

Then also consider a thing called fasting. What fasting is, it’s an area, a time in your day, where you stop, actually stop eating and let your body heal itself. If you can remember back to caveman time, those guys weren’t eating three meals a day. They had a meal today. That was great and they might miss tomorrow and the next day. They did a thing called fasting. When they were fasting, their body became stronger, more vital. They were thinking more clearly because they had. They had to make the body work and have to make a living. So fasting is something we don’t do. Now we overeat. So we reverse that when we actually stop eating and let the body heal itself. You might just want to consider maybe a day a month or just go from the evening meal through until your lunchtime meal and give your body a chance to heal back up, getting out some of these fires.

And also next thing we’d like to do besides the diet, we’d like to look at exercise on a regular basis. What a lot of people say, well, I exercised really hard last week but I didn’t exercise this week. Well, we got to be consistent. So find some kind of exercise you choose to do. Then get with some friends, which is a wonderful way to go about this because you guys can go out and socialize and exercise at the same time or join a gym or just go out for a walk and just get outside, get some fresh air. Also, there’s obviously yoga, Pilates, join a dance class, get involved in some kind of martial art, pickle ball, anything you do just to get the body moving and make it fun. If you make it fun, you have a chance and tendency to make it, do it on a regular basis. Again, you’re building your immunity by that movement.

And then lastly is take time emotionally with yourself each day. If that’s a prayer, that’s meditation, that’s having conversation with somebody, some way to kind of get out of your head and let your body work with the mind, exactly clear and healthy. So we can get the negative thoughts out of your head. You can go online. A lot of YouTube and Facebook and podcasts, like this podcast here to talk about things that you might want to consider. They give you an open possibilities that you haven’t thought about before. This is a wonderful time to live because there’s so many people out there with great information on these podcasts and again, YouTube and Facebook, but you can hear other ideas and just have to think about those ideas will withstand you again.

Then finally is to find and follow a healthcare professional. Someone who sees your body as a whole. Someone who helps empower you. You can use positive things like positive mindsets, exercise and good food to help the body heal itself. Put the body back into a state of harmony, in a state of peace.

So to sum all this up, just be conscious about your food. Make sure you’re eating foods as organic as much as you can. Move, exercise, keep moving the system that’s helping all parts and portions of your body, not just your legs and upper body, but the whole body as well. Hands and fingers and neck, so forth. But also be positive. Think about what you want. Your mind is going to go someplace. Put your mind on something you want to have. Power, priority, power of positive thinking. Be around people that are happy and upbeat. Smile. Make this life easy and enjoyable. The challenge is going to be there and you can deal with the challenges, but when you’re healthy, it’s a lot easier to make that happen.

Very finally, stick with professionals. Find a professional that is actually thoughtful about your body as a self healer and do the things they ask you to do, follow through. Use them as a coach to help you prepare for the years to come instead of patterning your life. They actually will help you be healthy and put all these fires out. So Mike, in a nutshell, these are our possibilities and this is where we can go if people decide this is not going to happen again. We don’t need this pandemic thing to happen.

Well, I can’t believe all the great information you’ve given today. Pandemic or no pandemic, this is just the way you should live if you want to have a healthy, prosperous life physically and emotionally. And so thank you again for such great information.

Thyroid & High Blood Pressure Gainesville GA


I was on High Blood Pressure medications for 13 years and then there was the Thyroid medication
for 16 years. My doctors said she would be on those medications or more of them for the rest of
my life. I didn’t like the side affects and the fact that they kept giving me more and more all the time was the wrong way to go and I knew it. I felt bad all the time and I knew the medications were doing that. Where was it going to stop. I knew I had to try something different. So I called the Winner Wellness Center.
Dr. Winner explained that my body needed support. He talked about Kinesiology, a system of combined disciplines that strengthens and balances muscles, tendons and ligaments. We talked about diet and nutrition and life style.He taught me about the interactions of my muscles and organs and how a wholistic approach gets my body back on tract. His approach made sense. Now
I knew what I had to do to get healthy and what Dr. Winner was going to do.
Everything has changed for me. i sleep better, interact with my coworkers and family better and I am not TIRED ALL THE TIME any more. My energy is where I hoped it would be, again. And more

and keeps it there. I liked the idea and I wanted to try. At 66 years old I was running out of time.
Well, I am here to tell you it worked phenomenally well

Nutrition and Your Immune System From Jeanne Winner

Welcome, everybody. I’m Mike Stewart, and we’re again at the Winner Wellness Podcast with myself, Mike Stewart, and resident expert, Dr. Jack Winner. Jack, are you here today?

I am, Mike. Good to hear from you today.

Well, I’m in Nashville, Tennessee, and Jack is in Gainesville, Georgia. And we are doing a virtual interview, like we do all the time. But I’ll tell you, the reason we’re doing it is because of this Coronavirus. It’s the talk of the world. It’s not just a local issue, it’s a worldwide issue. And I know that we’re getting so much attention about that. Talk about this problem and what can we do to stop this virus from taking over?

Well Mike, that’s a good question. Obviously, we are hearing a lot from the press and the news about what we should do. What I thought we might do Mike, is just make this as simple as we can so people have some clear understandings about what they can do, how can they make the changes, how they can actually support themselves and the family.

So first of all, Mike, we’re told that this is a thing with the older generation or people that are sick. Or if you have any kind of ongoing disease process, like diabetes or asthma, or autoimmune disease. Those kind of people are going to be more vulnerable to having the virus actually take over their system. So those people obviously have to be very aware of not the contact, we’re talking about just being away from a group of people, being pretty much on their own.

Right now, we don’t have any kind of vaccine and they don’t think they’re going to have come up with one by the time this whole wave has gone through, Mike. The problem with the virus is that every two to three days they change. They change so quickly that we can’t catch up with the virus. So we’re not going to have a vaccine, but what we can do is make sure we’re socially thoughtful about what’s going on here, and isolate ourselves like we’ve talked about in the quarantine.

Mike, what I want to do is explain to people that they’re talking so much now about the immune system. And the people who have poor immunity, that’s why these people are getting the viruses. And that’s why we’re starting to see the death rate elevate a bit here. So I want to go back and simplify what’s actually going on with the immune system. If we knew that we had a compromised immune system, that’s why we’re having the problem, we’d want to make sure that we increase immune function.

So how do we do that, Mike? We talk about first of all, what is the immune system? What the immune system is, it’s just your body’s natural ability to fight bacterial, viral infections, parasites. Whatever else comes in your system, your body should be able to fight that. So how this process is done with every human being on earth is you have a natural immune system called white blood cells. They are circulating through your bloodstream all the time. They’re job is like little Pacmen. They’re looking for bacterial, viruses and molds, these kinds of things. White blood cells, as they see something that’s abnormal in the system, they attack that and they kill whatever they see along the way.

So, as long as that system is working well and the body is not too compromised, these little guys do a great job. Then when something new comes in like this coronavirus, the body says, “Oh, oh, oh, I see something I haven’t seen before. My white blood cells are getting overwhelmed here. What I’ll do is, I’ll prototype to understand what kind of new item I have, what kind of virus I have here. And I’ll go back to my spleen and I’ll actually make these little soldiers called T lymphocytes. Those guys are now going to be produced by the spleen. So the spleen will start working on making these new soldiers to start sending them out into the blood system, so they can now attack this new virus.

Now what’s tough here is, if our systems are compromised or are sick, or our system has actually broken down, our body has a tough time making all these little soldiers. So they can’t fight as well as they can if there’s too much virus in the system. We’re starting to see now, people that are over-infected by somebody who was around them on a continual basis, get more and more virus in the system, these little soldiers get overwhelmed.

That happens, after while, the body is not really sure what’s the problem anymore. Because these viruses are starting to break down the tissue. They start breaking that tissue down, like the lining of your stomach or your bowel, your lungs or your heart. They start breaking down, your body’s not really sure what’s the problem. Is it the virus or these cells that are actually dying?

So now these T lymphocytes start attacking your own body. We call that autoimmune disease is what we call that. So when that happens now, the body is actually fighting itself. So it’s not fighting the virus anymore, it’s actually starting to break it’s own system down. That’s when we have the problem. And that’s why we’re starting to see deaths out there as well. So our job is to boost that immune system, Mike.

So we take again, down the point, Mike. Again, a lot of people say, “Okay, I got that. I realize that’s what’s going on? So how do I fight that?” So I want to give you an overview of what’s possible. And get real specific with you, there’s some things you can actually do when you and I get done off this podcast.

First of all, the first thing you want to know is your body can fight this virus. And I want to talk about how difficult it is for a lot of people who are fearful. And your fears are actually sometimes setting the problem up. So, hopefully what we’ll do is begin to have a belief system that your body is capable of solving this problem. And what we know about the mind, how the mind thinks, the mind actually programs your body’s physical function.

What I mean by that, we all have some understanding of the power of prayer, the power of positive thinking. Those things are actually things that actually help the body do a better job. In reverse of that, when we are fearful or upset, or have a negative mindset, that actually doesn’t allow the system to have a stronger immune system, it decreases your immune system. So the power of positive thinking is very important.

I just want to give you an example. There’s a guy by the name of Norman Cousins. He had cancer, actually up in Philadelphia a number of years ago. He was a medical doctor actually, and his friends opened him up and said, “You got so much cancer, there’s no way that we can do any kind of surgical procedure here.” So they said, “You know, this is it. You’re probably not going to last another six more weeks.” So Norman went into a hotel, he rented some films, W.C. Fields and Laurel Hardy, and the Three Stooges. And he paid his hotel bill and he said, “In six weeks, either I’m going to walk out of here or you’re going to carry me out.”

Well fortunately he started laughing. And everyday he watched those films and by the end of six weeks, he walked out of the hotel room. They couldn’t find the cancer anymore. He laughed himself to health. It’s called The Anatomy of an Illness, and it is a book by Norman Cousins. But he’s not the only one who’s done this. Many and millions of people have done the same thing. So we begin to understand how important the emotions are with you. So if you are fearful, you need to change those emotion states and get some positive aspects in your life.

The next thing we want to look at is foods. I want to go back to basics again. So what happens with a lot of people is we don’t eat good foods anymore, sadly so. A lot of our produce and things we’re getting have been chemically sprayed and genetically modified. Those foods now in our body are not foods that actually help us anymore. They become toxic. I want to give you an example of that. A number of years ago, I had a woman come in who had cirrhosis of the liver. She wasn’t a drinker. She was eating normal foods like everybody was, but what happens, actually her liver began to break down. So by the time we saw her she had sores on her body and she was very toxic and extremely tired.

And actually she asked me specifically, she said, “Can you solve cirrhosis of the liver?” I said, “No, I can’t.” She said, “Well, can’t you help me?” I said, “Yes, I can help you.” She said, “Well why can’t you solve cirrhosis of the liver?” I said, “Because we don’t chase cirrhosis of the liver. What we do is we actually make sure the body is healthy. And healthy bodies don’t have cirrhosis.” So she said, “Well what can we do?” I said, “Well the first thing that I ask you to do is clean your diet up. What I mean by that is, corn, wheat, dairy and sugar, come off of those, all those today.”

Well, she was very serious because they were going to remove her liver within six months. So she was on the ropes right now and so she decided, “I am going to do this right now.” She went home and threw all that stuff out. She tossed it in the garbage. That was pretty dramatic but at this point, this is a life or death situation. So I think that’s what a lot of people right now are actually facing as well with this coronavirus. So we need to get real clear and serious about what we’re going to do here.

Well that’s what she did. Within two weeks, her blood work stopped going down and it leveled off. Within the next two weeks, it came back and began to rise and go back to normal. Within two months, her blood levels were all back to normal again. That was five years ago. Her liver has completely cleared up. She never replaced her liver. Her energy and vitality is up. She has more vitality than most people you’ve ever seen before. Because her system now, wonderfully actually healed itself. And that’s what the body is capable of doing. That’s called increased immunity. It was capable for her but it’s capable for all you as well.

The last thing I would mention to you is exercise, movement. The body needs to move. If you remember, your blood is actually a healing agent. What your blood is doing is taking nutrients, enzymes, vitamins and hormones throughout your body and taking them to every one of your cells. Those cells now are being fed properly. If they’re being fed properly, now they will tear down old tissue and build better tissue. That waste back now is taken back out of your system, being returned, made it’s returned. And also lymphatic returned as well. How that system works though is by movement. The better your movement, the more the circulation blood flow, the more the body can tear down old tissue and build better tissue.

I want to also mention to you the lymphatic system. This is the very important part that people don’t have any realization of. The lymphatic system, wherever you have a blood vessel, you have a vein, you also have a lymphatic vessel. The lymphatic vessel, it’s job is like the garbage-can cleaner of the whole body. It’s taking all of the toxic material out of your system. When in the lymph nodes, it’s taking them up to your heart, through to your kidney, and it’s filtered out through your urinary system.

As long as there’s circulation blood flow, that lymphatic system can now also begin to do it’s job by clearing the toxins out of the system. How that lymphatic system works is by your muscle movement. The muscle is pushed against the lymphatic vessel. It forces the lymph system to move along the way to the lymph nodes where it’s killed and moved on now to clean out and make a healthy system for you.

So circulation is tremendously important. And that circulation could be just a good walk. Especially if there’s been a lot of house [inaudible 00:10:51] downstairs, we’ll walk throughout the house, where we’ll begin to look on YouTube where they have things like yoga and Pilates, and significant exercise programs. I see a lot of things they’re coming up with just to get circulation blood flow in the system. So that’s what we can now begin to do. It’s a simple way to do that, but that can actually make some major, major shifts in what’s necessary for the system to clean itself.

Well Jack, this has been amazing information and encouraging. And here’s what I’ve heard is I’ve heard that depending on where you are with your immune system, the coronavirus is not a death sentence.

Right.

And two, you got to look at what you’re doing, diet, exercise and your own situations with your own body. And one of the questions I have, it looks like you’ve been giving us all kinds of proactive things we can do. But are you in agreement that the quarantine and the social distancing is helpful as well?

It is, Mike. And what we’re hearing now, we just heard this back from Italy that they had about 40-something doctors have already died. What they found out is the more you’re exposed, the more that virus is brought into your system, the body gets overwhelmed. So the social distancing is very important, and the quarantine is important as well at this point. So Mike, if the listeners out there really want a boost to get their immune system up and active quickly, they can contact the Winner Wellness Center.

And what we do, we’ve worked with these problems for 35, 37 years. It’s the same idea. You’re making the system healthier so we can increase your immune system.

So, sometimes people, like you said earlier, Mike, they just want some direction. And realize, this is not a permanent condition. This is a temporary condition. And we can be proactive and make this process go through much quicker than waiting for something to happen to us. If we become proactive, just like you said earlier, this is going to be a good time for us. Maybe we have to be home with our family for the first time. We can start work on the deck like we wanted to. So let’s make this a positive experience for us. And this is maybe a great time also to get our health right, as well. So let’s use this in a positive way and make our lives better because of this experience.

Well this is a very timely and needed set of information. So wash your hands, stay at home, take care of your family. Learn to do things that you’ve been putting off. We’re finding a lot of folks learning to do things they’ve never had to do before because they never made it a priority. Well now you need to make it a priority. Well now, you need to make it a priority. Those things that you thought that you wanted to do, take this time to finish those things. Because as a friend of mine said, “We’re in a tunnel and there’s a left turn out there. So we can’t see the light at the end of the tunnel, but once we make that left turn that light’s going to shine bright and we’re all going to be a whole lot better.”
